WATCH: Mark Levin Slams ‘Accountable’ FISA Courts

CRTV host and bestselling author Mark Levin ripped into FISA court on the Thursday edition of Sean Hannity’s Fox News show.

Speaking about a letter that his organization sent to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act court on controversies surrounding the memo by Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), Levin told Hannity, "If you’re a judge … and you don’t do something about it? Congress needs to look into this!”

“I damn well expect federal judges serving as FISA court judges to make sure that [misconduct] wasn’t committed in front of them," he said. “These federal judges sitting on this FISA court act like they have no role in this. They were abused. The court was abused. The court was misled. People should be held to account."

"We presented this judge with the evidence and filed it. Congress needs to find out now why these judges, even today, aren’t holding these people accountable!"

Levin stated that if the FISA court could not do its job and be accountable to the American people, then it was time to dissolve and replace them.

"It’s time to abolish the FISA court. It’s time to create a new, a counter-intelligence-related court. It should not consist of existing federal judges,” he said. “They should be confirmed, not for life terms, for given terms. The FBI and the Justice Department, when they go into that court, should not be alone any more. There ought to be an office within the federal government that’s there to ensure that civil liberties are protected.”
