The Greatest Crime In American History


It is a sad state of American affairs when the American Free Press (aka Mainstream Media or MSM or Dem-Marxist Propaganda Machine) is so devoted in transforming America away from its Founding Principles that very press fails to inform Americans of treasonous events and people that rival the threat America faced in history from General Benedict Arnold and a former Vice President Aaron Burr. Due to press failure you will find this documented info from Justin Smith of huge interest!

The Greatest Crime In American History

RussiaGate: The Smoking Guns – Treason Should Come With a Price

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent  10/9/20

President Trump authorized John Ratcliffe, Director of National Intelligence, to declassify all documents that prove former CIA Director John Brennan briefed former President Obama on Hillary Clinton’s plan to tie Donald Trump to Russia, [JOS] the greatest political crime in history“, during the 2016 presidential campaign, to distract America away from her illegal use of a private email server.

VIDEO: Trump calls for Biden, Obama to be indicted in ‘greatest political crime in history’

Posted by Fox Business

1.25M subscribers – Oct 8, 2020

President Trump called on Attorney General Barr to indict Obama and Biden in connection with the Russia investigation.]

The President has also publicly urged Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to release more of Clinton’s emails in an attempt to be more aggressive in running Barack Obama, Joe Biden, James Comey, John Brennan and many other deep state traitors to ground, who actively engaged in a criminal conspiracy to overthrow a duly elected president of the United States of America, and just today (October 9th) Pompeo, in fact, told Fox News that he would be doing just so in the coming weeks.

Reported by Brooke Singman for Fox News on October 6th, handwritten notes were taken by Brennan after he briefed Obama on the scheme. This was a scheme Obama not only embraced but kept going through his administration’s abuse of FISA Warrants and unmasking of Trump loyalists.

This information was released after Ratcliffe informed the Senate Judiciary Committee that U.S. intelligence officials forwarded an investigative referral on Clinton on September 7th 2016, regarding her stamp of approval on “a plan concerning U.S. presidential candidate Donald Trump and Russia hackers hampering elections” in order to hurt Trump and turn the public eye away from the investigation into her email scandal.

One part of Brennan’s notes read: “We’re getting additional insight into Russian activities from (REDACTED). CITE (summarizing) alleged approved by Hillary Clinton a proposal from one of her foreign policy advisors to vilify Donald Trump by stirring up a scandal claiming interference by the Russian security service.”

Also in [JOS] the notes, one finds items implicating then-FBI Director James Comey, National Security Advisor Susan Rice and Obama Chief of Staff Denis McDonough, through the simple scribbling of “JC”, “Susan” and “Denis”.

[Blog Editor: Scribd embed based on Justin Smith embedded link above:]

 

Throughout the recent Senate Judiciary Hearing, James Comey continuously pleaded ignorance of the referral saying it didn’t “ring any bells” and didn’t “sound familiar”.

In a clip from [JOS] Sunday Morning Futures on October 4th, Representative Devin Nunes, the highest ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, said: “The documents that are underlying what we now have seen, I have only seen a few of those — they’re smoking guns. That information definitely needs to be made available to the American public” — as he also declared quite emphatically — “Every Republican senator and member of Congress should be saying … we want every damn bit of evidence that every intelligence agency has or maybe it’s time to shut those agencies down.”

The plot thickens once one discovers that the entire approval of this scheme came implicitly from Obama and Biden himself, who also suggested using the Logan Act against Trump’s pick for DNI, General Michael Flynn, and their infiltration of the 2016 Presidential Campaign itself set up the machinations needed for their Soft Coup, in the “unlikely event”, in their minds, that Trump should actually win. Part of this scheme required getting Gina Haspel, who was at the time the head of the CIA London office, on board with the operation, since the FBI needed to fabricate a foreign counterintelligence “event” in order to pretend this operation was remotely legal. And this is the reason that all America now witnesses Haspel refusing to release documents from the CIA that have bearing on this, since she would have to reveal her own involvement and acts of treason.

One should keep a close eye on any new developments inside the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, especially if focus bears down on ranking member Mark Warner (D-VA) and the fact that he acted very aggressively to disseminate the Steele Dossier disinformation, between 2016 and 2017, in cooperation with The Democracy Integrity Project, a George Soros funded organization, that was overseen and operated by Dan Jones, chief of staff to Senator Diane Feinstein (D-CA), and Adam Waldman, a go between for Christopher Steele and Warner. And it is far from insignificant that Waldman was also a lobbyist, raking in $40,000 a month, who worked for Oleg Deripaska, a Russian billionaire and Clinton Foundation donor, to the tune of at least one million dollars. How curious it is to also discover that Deripaska also employed Christopher Steele as a disinformation errand boy. Untangling this one will be like untangling a nest of water moccasins after a spring thaw.

[Blog Editor: The Russian Deripaska connection to Christopher Steele is significantly disturbing, but it sounds to me Deripaska might have been in the beginning stages of grooming Paul Manafort via greed/blackmail to be a Russian mole. We may never know because the Trump-hate team prosecutors headed by corrupt Mueller convicted Manafort on unrelated-to-Trump tax crimes:

 

 

The United States Department of Justice must accelerate its investigations and start taking real action against those known plotters of the ongoing coup attempt against President Trump, slowing down not one iota, since its current unraveling of the plot is providing the smoking guns that exhibit many people, within the Obama administration, were active parties in its planning and implementation. Even before President Trump authorized the declassification, ample evidence was on display that suggested the guilt of many high officials throughout the Obama administration, and many others who were held over into the Trump administration.

Speaking with Rush Limbaugh on October 9th, President Trump stated he was unaware that U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr wouldn’t be releasing the findings from the Durham Investigation before November 3rd, and he added that if this was in fact the case, he would “be very disappointed in him”.

In an October 8th interview with Fox Business host, Maria Bartiromo, President Trump stated [via transcript]: “These are people that spied on my campaign, and we have everything. Now they (the DOJ) say they have much more, OK. And I say, ‘Bill, we got plenty, you don’t need anymore.’ … (Later adding) … To be honest, Bill Barr is going to go down as either the greatest attorney general in the history of the country or he’s going to go down as, you know, a very sad situation. Unless Bill Barr indicts these people for crimes … then we’re going to get little satisfaction unless I win. But these people should be indicted; this was the greatest political crime in the history of our country. And that includes Obama and it includes Biden.”

An abundance of evidence released this past week quite incontrovertibly proves that everybody in Obama’s executive branch was fully aware that the Russia Gambit was a Hillary campaign ploy, and they still went along with it and weaponized their respective offices into the scheme, as they assumed Clinton couldn’t lose and they would never be exposed for the traitors to America they most certainly are.

But, Hillary lost and the ship is sinking, taking along all its red, radical Democratic Party communist rats, squeaking and squealing in desperation shown in all their actions that have unfolded over the past three years. But this is only a small part of their overall operation, exhibited by their unified operations state by state to exert lockdowns, gun control and all manner of suppression of our Bill of Rights, and no one should believe that the Democratic Reds’ reign of terror will end with the end of this saga, whatever its ignominious end. And in the meantime, conservative America reviles and castigates Jim Comey and his perfidious sedition, as he testifies to Congress, braying out, “I can’t recall” on very nearly every question.

Ratcliffe’s information arrives in the wake of many publications and a ream of documents unsealed last month that reveal FBI agents on the Trump-Russia probe acquired professional liability insurance, worried their investigation had crossed legal lines, and President Trump has received this news, as further proof of their culpability and involvement in a “coup” against him. Worried hell. They know, and any backwoods fool knows, that they broke numerous federal laws. Whatever the case is finally proven to be, somehow it seems most unlikely that professional liability insurance is going to shield anyone from the consequences of their acts of treason against a sitting president and the United States of America.

The snakes are being flushed from their dens. There’s a price one pays, when one participates in a coup and betrays one’s country.

However, with twenty-some-odd days left before Election Day, unfortunate as it is, unless everything is declassified immediately and placed in front of the American public, it’s highly likely that the deep state’s gambit of dragging its heels and sitting on the information, or releasing heavily redacted copies, will be rewarded with them escaping the justice and the gallows or firing squad. Trump is full well within his rights and authority to move Heaven and Earth and all the legal firepower he holds to have his staff walk into the FBI and the CIA and clear out their files, to preserve the records and all the evidence of treason, before they disappear. Short of this, these traitors and this Deep State cabal will have gotten away with the greatest crime in American history.

Numerous smoking guns and reams of readily seen solid facts and evidence, both first hand and circumstantial, prove beyond any shadow of doubt that Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, John Brennan, Susan Rice, James Clapper, Samantha Power and hundreds more across several federal agencies actively engaged in a criminal conspiracy to oust President Trump by criminal means and overthrow the U.S. republic itself. And, despite all the other assaults America is currently suffering from the Democratic Party Communists, such as Representative Nancy Pelosi ludicrously seeking to invoke the 25th Amendment against President Trump, this administration still must bring these traitors to their oaths, the Constitution and America to justice. Once all the evidence is in front of the people, it most assuredly should result in the conviction of these anti-American slugs, but these aren’t normal times anymore. Still, once all the evidence has proven to be fact and the truth, every traitor who took part in this operation must be prosecuted and imprisoned for life or executed, depending on their level of involvement.

After all of this, if no one is hoisted on the Hanging Tree, or at least thrown in a prison cell, all America will understand that there really isn’t any “rule of law” in America any longer, and it will serve to hasten our descent into civil war, as the enemies of America in the Democratic Party continue to commit treason against America with impunity and trample the Bill of Rights at will, each time power rests in their hands.

Millie Weaver Arrest & Shadow Gate


John R. Houk

© August 21, 2020

 

Millie Weaver was arrested August 14 suspiciously close to the release of her Documentary “SHADOW GATE” exposing Deep State operations in the U.S. Government. It turns out Weaver’s arrest isn’t directly related to Shadow Gate, but is tied to a domestic issue between Millie, Millie’s brother and boyfriend versus Millie’s mother over a dispute over a cell phone.

 

I’ve tried to garner info on the arrests and the reason for such from various websites, but they are lacking on details focusing on arrest, jail and arraignment. The Center-Left website Heavy.com seems to me to provide the most judicious details making an effort to show the accused, Millie’s mother and Prosecutor’s perspective.

 

Reading/listening to all perspectives there appears to be a wide gulf of versions, but what strikes me is the mother made a huge effort to call off her complaint and the Prosecution proceeded anyway. That reeks of political witch hunt to me in which lawyers get richer, government Prosecutors use taxpayer money resources and an outcome that will probably end in exoneration of assault but a huge political effort to find guilt regarding handling of evidence. The evidence issue usually means Obstruction for Conservatives, a charge the Dems and Leftists have been dodging for decades.

 

This is how this post will play out. I am beginning with the Heavy.com reporting, toss in some less informative websites and culminate with an embed of Millie Weaver’s Shadow Gate. You should be made aware at this point Shadow Gate has been uploaded to various video formats. A Youtube version was attempted but I understand the Youtube censors have banned it. So appropriately I am using the Banned Video format in my embed (unfortunately I have not figured out how to embed Banned Video on my WordPress blog, ergo those readers will be stuck with a link).

Millie Weaver: Ohio Arrest Related to Altercation With Her Mother, Court Docs Show

Updated Aug 17, 2020 at 5:26pm

Heavy.com

 

Millie Weaver was arrested on August 14 on charges of robbery and domestic violence.

 

Millie Weaver, an Infowars contributor and conservative filmmaker, is facing criminal charges because of a dispute with her mother, Portage County court documents confirm.

 

Weaver, along with her partner Gavin Wince and younger brother Charles Weaver, was arrested on August 14 in front of her two young children at her home in northeastern Ohio. She was detained hours before she was scheduled to release a documentary on YouTube called Shadow Gate. Court records show she was released from custody at 2:25 p.m. on August 17 on a personal recognizance bond.

 

In a trailer for the film, Weaver claimed she had spoken with two whistleblowers who had knowledge of an orchestrated “coup” against President Donald Trump. The timing of her arrest prompted conspiracy theories online, with critics questioning whether the arrest was related to the documentary.

 

The indictment, which was made available August 17 on the Portage County Clerk of Courts website, states Weaver was charged in connection to an altercation with her mother on April 25, 2020.

 

Here’s what you need to know:

 

  1. Weaver Is Accused of Helping Wince & Her Brother Tackle Her Mother, Felicia McCarron, in Order to Get Her Phone

 

Millie Weaver criminal complaint – Portage County Sheriff

 

Millicent F. Weaver is facing felony charges because of a dispute with her mother, Felicia McCarron. The indictment, handed down by a Portage County Grand Jury, shows that the altercation happened on April 25, 2020. McCarron’s first name was spelled “Felecia” in the indictment but a search of online records shows she spells her name “Felicia.”

 

According to the criminal complaint, which Heavy obtained from the county prosecutor, McCarron had been living at the Portage County home for about a month at the time of the confrontation. She moved in after the coronavirus pandemic forced her employer in California to shut down. The report states that on April 25, McCarron was texting with a religious leader “about her daughter being mean.” McCarron accused Weaver of calling her names. Deputies said they confirmed McCarron had sent a text message to her Bishop 26 minutes before dialing 911.

 

McCarron told deputies she started recording on her phone because she wanted to document how the family treated her. She claimed her son, Charles, along with Wince and Weaver, tackled her to the ground in order to steal her phone. McCarron ran out of the house and used a neighbor’s phone to call 911. McCarron added that she saw Charles run to the back of the property and she assumed he was hiding her phone.

In a separate interview with responding deputies, Weaver denied her mother’s allegations. She claimed McCarron had lost her phone two days earlier and was upset about it. Weaver described her mother as “mentally ill and not reliable.” Weaver claimed her mother had threatened the rest of the family with a knife, put it away, and then ran outside the house yelling about calling the police. Weaver told deputies they had considered calling 911 themselves but ultimately decided against it.

 

Millie Weaver criminal complaint – Portage County Sheriff

 

Weaver is accused of threatening to harm McCarron during the course of a robbery, which is a second-degree felony. The indictment from the Portage County Grand Jury states:

 

In attempting or committing a theft offense, or in fleeing immediately after the attempt or offense, recklessly inflict, attempt to inflict, or threaten to inflict physical harm upon Felicia McCarron.

 

Weaver is further accused of attempting to destroy evidence related to the dispute, a third-degree felony:

 

Knowing that an official proceeding or investigation is in progress, or is about to be or likely to be instituted did, alter, destroy, conceal or removed a record, document or thing with the purpose to impair its value or availability as evidence in such proceeding or investigation.

 

The third count is obstructing justice, which is a fifth-degree felony charge:

 

With purpose to hinder the discovery, apprehension, prosecution, conviction, or punishment of Millicent F. Weaver, Charles L. Weaver Jr and/o Facebookr Gavon S. Wince for a crime or to assist another to benefit from the commission of a crime, communicate false information to (any person), and the crime committed by the person aided is a felony of the fifth, fourth or third degree.

 

The fourth charge is a first-degree misdemeanor count of domestic violence. The Grand Jury found probable cause that Weaver had “recklessly caused serious physical harm to the family or household member.”

 

  1. A Person Claiming to Be Weaver’s Mother Wrote on YouTube the Dispute Was About a $50 Cellphone

 

Felicia McCarron Facebook Photo (circa 2011 – Millie Weaver far right)

 

Weaver’s mother has weighed in on her daughter’s arrest. A woman claiming to be Felicia McCarron posted a comment on a YouTube video that was published by “The Official Hagmann Report” on August 14. The comment links back to an account that appears to belong to McCarron.

 

McCarron described the situation as a “family dispute” and that the robbery pertained to a $50 cellphone. McCarron claimed she had asked local authorities to drop the charges several weeks before Weaver’s arrest:

 

This is Millie’s mother … It’s my cell phone worth about $50, that she took during a family dispute that happened months ago when I was in Ohio visiting my family. She took it because I had my phone on record during an argument we were having. We resolved the issue immediately and I dropped all charges right after it happened before I left Ohio … because it was a gross misunderstanding and no harm was done.

 

All families have their disagreements…especially during a quarantine…. In Ca nothing happens when you call the police…..I am shocked my family was arrested after I told the police to drop all charges months ago. I had a general affidavit of non prosecution notarized today and I spoke with the police chief , who told me I could not do anything until Monday morning and my daughter, son and her boyfriend have to stay in jail over the weekend. I am extremely upset… this is not what I wanted to happen. I think they have a lot bigger fish to fry…makes me think this might have been done to prevent her from coming out with some political information she is covering. There was no reason for this.

 

  1. The Arrest Warrant Was Issued Nearly Four Weeks Before Weaver Was Detained

 

Millie Weaver Arrest Warrant – Secret Indictment Portage County Sheriff

 

The warrant for Weaver’s arrest was filed nearly four weeks before it was executed, Portage County court documents prove. The warrant, which can be viewed here, states that the indictment against Weaver was filed in Portage County Common Pleas Court on July 20, 2020.

 

The document was stamped by Clerk of Courts Jill Frankhauser. It includes the following language: “Bring said person before said Court without unnecessary delay.” It’s unclear why it took the sheriff’s department 25 days to carry out the arrest.

 

The warrant was labeled as a “secret indictment.” Under Ohio law, this simply means the indictment is kept sealed until after the defendant has been apprehended by law enforcement.

 

Weaver live-streamed the interaction with deputies when they came to her home on Yale Road to arrest her. In the clip, Weaver repeatedly asked why she was under arrest and expressed surprise when told that she had been indicted by a grand jury. One of the deputies eventually answered that Weaver was being arrested for burglary but did not appear to have more information at the time. (The charge turned out to be robbery, not burglary).

 

During the arrest, Weaver explained into the camera, “Guys, I’m literally about to break huge breaking news right now. I’m being arrested and I have no idea why.”

 

  1. Weaver Was Released on a Personal Recognizance Bond

 

Millie Weaver Bond P.R. – Portage County Sheriff

 

Weaver, Wince, and her brother Charles Weaver were arrested on August 14 and booked into the Portage County Jail. They remained behind bars without bond over the weekend.

 

Court records show all three were scheduled to appear before Judge Becky Doherty in the Portage County Common Pleas Court at 11am on August 17 for a formal arraignment.

 

Court documents show Prosecutor Victor Vigluicci recommended bond be set at $20,000. The document recommended Weaver be required to post at least 10 percent of the total in order to be released from custody.

 

Millie Weaver P.R. Bond (10percent down)

 

Judge Doherty agreed to set bond at $20,000 but the court document shows it is a personal recognizance bond. This means Weaver agrees to return to court for future hearings and can be released from custody without needing to pay money to the court. She would owe that money if she failed to appear in court.

 

Millie Weaver Custody Record – Portage County Sheriff

 

Court records initially listed Canton, Ohio, defense attorney Eugene O’Byrne, as Weaver’s lawyer. Attorney Troy Reeves has since been added to the court filing to represent Weaver.

 

Weaver entered a “not guilty” plea through her attorney. A discovery hearing was scheduled for September 9 and the criminal pre-trial hearing was set for October 21.

 

  1. Felicia McCarron Lives in California & Previously Worked in Real Estate

 

Felicia McCarron Facebook photo (circa 2011)

 

Weaver was born in San Bernardino and her mother is still located in southern California. Felicia McCarron previously worked in real estate, according to records with the California Department of Real Estate. Records show McCarron was a licensed salesperson from 2001 until 2013 but did not renew her license after that.

 

McCarron’s public Facebook page has not been updated since 2014. According to the page, she worked for the OC Weekly newspaper, but it’s unclear in what capacity.

 

Weaver pursued a career in the entertainment industry in the early 2010s as a model and singer, and her mother commented on those efforts on Facebook. In February 2011, McCarron announced that Millie and her sister, Minna, had debuted a single called “Hollywood Here We Come.” McCarron wrote in a second post, “Minna and Millie will be performing on the 23rd in Beverly Hills at the Pre-Academy Award/Breast Cancer Awareness Event, Hosted by David Harrison Levi.”

Millie Weaver and her co-defendants are freed on bond

Conservative new media personality Millicent (Millie) Weaver, AKA Millennial Millie, had her day in court Monday morning via a live Zoom video stream from jail in northeastern Ohio after being arrested last Friday and spending the weekend locked up. As cleveland dot com reported Monday afternoon:

 

Millie Weaver and two others pleaded not guilty at a Monday arraignment in Portage County Common Pleas Court on felony charges including robbery that stem from an April altercation with Weaver’s mother, according to court records.

 

Portage County Common Pleas Court Judge Becky Doherty set Weaver’s bond at $20,000 and ordered her released on her own recognizance. Weaver’s boyfriend Gavin Wince and brother Charles Weaver pleaded not guilty to the same charges and were issued the same bond.

 

The news of Millie Weaver’s arrest and detention on Friday, August 14 — reported in my two previous posts at American Thinker here and here — received wide attention.  Contributing to that interest were Weaver’s large fan base and the fact that her arrest occurred suspiciously close to the release date of her documentary film Shadow Gate.  The 82-minute-long movie promised new revelations about the Deep State, specifically an exposé of the “operational role the shadow government played behind the scenes carrying out the coup against President Trump.”  The documentary wound up being uploaded to YouTube on Friday by Tore Maras Lindeman, who appears in the film as one of two whistleblowers.  Before it was deleted (AKA censored) from YouTube, the film had accumulated 1.3 million views.  Copies of Shadow Gate are all over the internet now, including at a censor-free site here.

 

Unconfirmed reports are that Millie Weaver’s and Gavin Wince’s two young children were returned to the couple after spending the weekend in the custody of child protective services.

 

Portage County prosecutor Victor Vigluicci said Monday that he did not know who Millie Weaver was prior to her arrest and that the case had “nothing to do with her political beliefs or whatever she chooses to publish.”  According to cleveland dot com, Weaver is being represented by Canton, Ohio attorney Eugene O’Byrne, who has not replied so far to any media inquiries.

 

A copy of the indictment of Millie Weaver and her arrest warrant, issued by the Court of Common Pleas, Portage County, Ohio on July 20, was made public on Monday and can be viewed here.

 

Millie Weaver speaks with Tore Maras Lindeman in a video call from jail, August 16, 2020.

 

Millie Weaver’s friend and collaborator on Shadow Gate, Tore Maras Lindeman, posted the audio of her August 16 15-minute-long conversation with Millie Weaver while Weaver was in jail.  The audio can be accessed here.  The sound begins at the 2 minute and 12 second mark.

 

This story is far from over.  In addition to the disposition of the case against the three defendants, my research and deep dive into open source records have turned up some new and interesting insights into the whole affair surrounding the arrest and the film Shadow Gate.  Watch for further reports here at American Thinker.

Investigative Journalist ‘Millennial’ Millie Weaver Released from Ohio Jail, November Trial Set

The Tennessee Star

 

Millicent F. Weaver, 29, known in digital circles and on social feeds as Millennial Millie was arrested in a Diamond, Ohio home on Friday August 14.

 

Weaver’s boyfriend, Gavin Wince, 46, and brother Charles Weaver, 26, were also arrested. A Portage County Grand Jury issued secret arrest warrants for all three charging them with robbery, tampering with evidence, obstruction of justice and domestic violence.

 

Weaver captured her arrest on video that was later released on Twitter by YouTube sensation Mark Dice.  In the video, Weaver asks why she is being arrested and the officer can be heard saying ““I’ll give you all your paperwork when we get to the jail.”

 

Millie goes on to say, “I’m literally about to break huge breaking news right now and I’m being arrested, and I have no idea why.”

 

The breaking news she referred to in her arrest video is her investigative report Shadowgate, which released Friday.

 

The Ohio Star talked with Millie Weaver and she said she was instructed to not comment on the case.

 

Weaver’s case is State of Ohio v. Millicent F. Weaver and is an open case that will be adjudicated by Portage County Common Pleas Court Judge Becky L. Doherty. During Monday’s arraignment, Judge Doherty set bond for Weaver at $20,000 but released her on her own recognizance.

 

Shadowgate introduces two people who both claim to have been private contractors working for private companies that siphon digital information (web traffic, text messages, phone calls) collected by the National Security Agency (NSA), the national-level intelligence agency of the United States Department of Defense.

 

According to the whistleblowers, information collected by the NSA is mirrored, or duplicated. That duplicated data, it is alleged, is retained by contractors who sell it to people who use it for nefarious purposes. Those purposes include using data in psychological operations deployed through mainstream and social media outlets to influence elections, and as a source of blackmail to bully opponents of political initiatives.

 

Charles Weaver and Gavin Wince were also released Monday on their own recognizance.

 

The trial date is set for November 2, the day before the 2020 United States Presidential election.

The Conspiracy & The Goal


THINK OF THIS! If what happened to Lt. General Michael Flynn goes on without actual justice, what shot at maintaining Liberty does the average American possess when a corrupt Left-Wing government comes after them for not towing the State-line of thought? Justin Smith thoughts below.

The Conspiracy & The Goal

The Plot of the Unelected Anti-American Traitors

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent  5/3/2020 12:25 AM

 

As God as my witness, the truth is I am innocent.”  ~ Lt. General Michael Flynn

 

Nearly four years after the Deep State and senior Obama administration officials framed Lieutenant General Michael Flynn, former National Security Advisor for President Trump, in a pre-emptive strike, to remove Flynn and prevent him from reforming the assorted sixteen intelligence agencies, and a conspiracy to cripple the Trump administration, there now seems to be a light at the end of the tunnel through this sordid denouement. New evidence was turned over to Sidney Powell, Flynn’s defense attorney, by U.S. Attorney Timothy Shea, after U.S. Attorney Jeffrey Jensen and other attorneys appointed by U.S. Attorney General William Barr found it, shredding the last defenses of the Deep State’s rogue Intelligence forces and their years of deceit, juridical depravity and treachery; and, it has begun to unravel the vast tapestry of this sedition and the malicious prosecution of General Flynn, fully exonerating this fine American Patriot.

 

Reported by the amazing ##Sara Carter, investigative journalist, on April 24th of this year, Carter quotes Shea’s letter to Powell: “The enclosed documents were obtained and analyzed by USA EDMO in March and April 2020 and are provided to you as a result of this ongoing review; additional documents may be forthcoming. These materials are covered by the Protective Order entered by the Court on February 21, 2018.”

 

Flynn’s “crime”? A supposed illegal communication — a violation of the never used Logan Act — with the Russian Ambassador to the U.S. in the last days of December 2016, that was only discovered by way of an illegal surveillance of the Good General and then leaked to Trump-hating journalists in the New York Times and the Washington Post. Oh … and lying to the FBI for not being able to fully recall every detail of the phone call he made to Ambassador Kislyak.

 

Obama’s criminal conspirators started looking hard at Flynn in 2016, when he joined the Trump campaign as a foreign affairs advisor and made the mistake of leading the “Lock her up” chant in front of a deliriously enthusiastic crowd at the Republican Convention. He more than likely knew more than a thing or two about the Clinton Foundation’s activities, and maybe even where the bodies are buried so to speak.

 

Donald J. Trump did the “impossible” and pulled out the win, General Flynn was appointed as National Security Advisor, and the immeasurable anxiety and panic that rushed through the Deep State set off deafening alarm bells and prompted the Intelligence Community to create the operation “Crossfire Razor”.  And not long afterwards on December 29th 2016, Obama shook U.S.-Russia relations by confiscating country retreat properties in Long Island and Maryland that were owned by the Russian Embassy, expelling 35 embassy employees as payback for supposed Russian interference in the 2016 election; this prompted the conversation between Flynn and Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak and put Flynn’s entrapment by the FBI in motion.

 

One should also note that General Flynn was loathed and despised by the Obama political and national security bureaucrats for properly criticizing them for politicizing intelligence. The FBI was not a fan either, especially Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, due to Flynn’s support of an agent who alleged the Bureau had subjected her to sex discrimination..

 

K.T. McFarland ##documents her recollection of those days, because she was there from the start, as the Deputy National Security Advisor for President Trump. McFarland notes in her May 1st Fox News article: “When I talked to Flynn about these events at the time he was still national security adviser, he didn’t strike me as someone who had deliberately lied or tried to dissemble precisely what he said to Russian Ambassador Kislyak on what call or on exactly which day.”

 

https://video.foxnews.com/v/embed.js?id=6153302975001&w=466&h=263

 

Flynn, the incoming National Security Advisor, had committed no crime whatsoever, by speaking to the Russian Ambassador, because the Logan Act of 1799 was never intended to criminalize communications during a presidential transition, as it only outlawed NEGOTIATIONS BY UNAUTHORIZED AMERICAN CITIZENS WITH FOREIGN GOVERNMENTS. As the President Trump’s newly appointed and authorized agent, the call to Ambassador Kislyak was simply business as usual and nothing out of the ordinary or different from what incoming presidents and their staff and Cabinet have done for decades.

 

Notes taken by William Priestap, former FBI Assistant Director for Counterintelligence, were ordered to be released late Wednesday, April 29th, by U.S. District Court Judge Emmet G. Sullivan, and the Justice Department released eleven more pages the same day. They reveal a perjury trap created by the FBI and the senior members of the bureau and the agents in charge of the fabricated allegations that President Trump’s campaign colluded with Russia.

 

The agents involved discussed refraining from any mention of the General’s Miranda rights, before conducting their January 2017 interview with him, a practice regularly used by the FBI, in order to get “suspects” to incriminate themselves and to be charged with a crime, if they mislead agents.

 

In part, the notes read: “What is our goal? Truth/Admission or get him to lie, so we can prosecute him or get him fired?”

 

Even more disturbing, we now also know that the Special Counsel and Mueller’s “investigation” was always just a part of the larger effort to conceal this conspiracy, allowing FBI and DOJ officials involved in the conspiracy to hide all of the evidence inside Mueller’s operation, thus making it impossible for defense lawyers to access and impeding efforts by Congress too. This ploy also prevented the Trump administration from being able to conduct a proper investigation, even as Flynn’s original defense team, Covington & Burling, was selling him down the river and helping his antagonists frame him.

 

[Blog Editor – the point:

 

 

 

All documents that could have helped Flynn’s defense were systematically withheld by the FBI and the Department of Justice, preventing anyone — not just Flynn’s defense team — from uncovering the plot. Covington & Burling’s sudden release of long hidden documents suggests that they may have been part of this entire sorry plot, making them guilty of many crimes themselves.

 

To date and many tribulations later, the Good General is out $3.5 million to Covington & Burling, and he still had $4.6 million in unpaid legal bills as of last year. He was forced to sell his house in September 2018 to pay legal expenses, receiving $819,995, confirmed by Powell and Fox News. [Flynn Legal Defense Fund]

 

Highlighting just how vast this plot might actually be, on April 29th, Katie Pavlich asked two very important questions: “What did FBI Director Christopher Wray know and when? And why has he been covering for these scum bags?” Ms. Pavlich is an editor at the conservative news outlet of Townhall and a regular Fox News contributor.

 

Even more intriguing, there is now a whistleblower inside the FBI who has given information to The Federalist and the Daily Caller that claims Christopher Wray and his general counsel, Dana Boente, moved heaven and earth to try and prevent U.S. Attorney Jeffrey Jensen’s discoveries from being given to Sidney Powell, Flynn’s lawyer. Supposedly it was also Boente, who convinced Jeff Sessions to recuse himself from the Trump/Russia collusion case, when he was then-Acting Deputy Attorney General, according to Joe DiGenova, former U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia.

 

DiGenova exclaimed: “This story is like a Russian novel. I mean, this is Dostoyevsky, it’s even better than Dostoyevsky.”

 

Other documents notably show that the FBI was prepared to formally close their investigation of Flynn and the case against him on January 4th 2017, but 20 minutes after the memorandum circulated, Peter Strzok, a rabidly anti-Trump agent, and other agents intervened and managed to keep the “case” ongoing. And this was immediately followed on January 5th by a meeting between President Obama, V.P Biden, FBI Director James Comey, Susan Rice — Flynn’s predecessor, and Attorney General Sally Yates, regarding how Comey would brief President-elect Donald Trump the next day, feeding him the false information contained in the fabricated Steele Dossier paid for by the Clinton campaign.

 

Remember also how Susan Rice would later write a memo on January 20th about the meeting, in a blatant attempt to cover her own ass, stating, “President Obama said he wants to be sure that, as we engage the incoming team, we are mindful to ascertain if there is any reason that we cannot share information fully as it relates to Russia.” Rice wrote this during the very moments the FBI was preparing to go after Flynn in an all-out frontal assault.

 

These criminals in the upper echelons of the Obama administration had to find a way to remove Flynn, since he was the only member of President Trump’s inner circle who would immediately recognize what was being plotted against the new president. Flynn had also been the head of the Defense Intelligence Agency under President Obama and he knew all the dirty secrets of the intelligence community, and he had enough scars from battles with the intelligence services to understand the underlying dynamics and the manner information was withheld and exploited by intelligence operators.

 

Flynn’s understanding of what was actually transpiring also moved him to initially offer a guilty plea, although he did not really believe he was guilty, and neither did the FBI agents who interviewed him; however, after Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s staff threatened to go after his son for failing to register with the Justice Department as a foreign agent, he felt he had no good choice. This government coercion by way of threatening one’s family crosses many lines and should be setting off warning bells across the land, since the charge was once again a fabrication of a most foul nature.

 

Not long after the Good General was briefed by Sidney Powell, his defense lawyer, on the evidence revelations, he posted a video of the American Flag waving at his home, prompting Donald Trump, Jr. to write in a tweet: “Imagine having your life and reputation ruined by rogue US govt. officials. Then years later when the plot finally comes to light the first thing you do is post an American flag. This is the guy they want you to believe was a Russian asset.”

 

President Trump recently stated that Michael Flynn was victimized by “dirty, filthy cops at the top of the FBI.”

 

Utilizing tactics that would have made the Soviet NKVD of **Lefortova proud, these agents set off in search of a crime without the slightest concern for destroying the life of this fine brave man, a three star general, who had passionately fought America’s enemies and terrorism and dedicated his entire life to serving America. They placed their evil Machiavellian plot above their duty and above God and country, as they simultaneously acted to leverage General Flynn to testify against the President and others about alleged wrongdoing, in order to advance the Russia hoax to discredit President Trump and oust him; and, although they thought they were going to get away with their conspiracy, thanks to Sidney Powell’s tireless never-ending efforts, their gambit and conspiracy is on full display.

 

[**Blog Editor: Since polls have indicated that American Millennials are warming up to Communism, one should examine the life of a political prisoner in Lefortova Prison still in use today by the Russian Federation:

 

 

 

 

 

“Why does this even matter anymore?”, some may ask.

 

So many of America’s current troubles are due to the culture of pervasive dishonesty, corruption and criminal activity across all levels of U.S. government, every area of our national life, and, most arrogantly and insidiously, the anti-American lawlessness around the CIA, FBI and Department of Justice during and after the 2016 election. Anything goes and nothing matters in this war of politics that is sure to become a hot one with lead flying in all directions one day in the not too distant future, if we don’t reform our government and eradicate the vile vermin from its ranks and try with all our might to go on as a credible and moral nation.

 

K.T. McFarland explains it best: “Take politics out of it for a moment and consider this: a cabal of senior leaders of the FBI — unelected and accountable to no one — plotted against a newly elected President of the United States.”

 

The morning of April 30th, President Donald Trump tweeted: “What happened to General Michael Flynn, a war hero, should never be allowed to happen to a citizen of the United States again!”

 

America will never return to normal, until the American people are shown that real justice exists in this country, even as we note federal attorney John Durham’s investigation looms in the background and strives to do just that; and yet, Barr seems reluctant to go after the collaborators in Congress and the media. Every damned traitor to America, who took part in this seditious conspiracy operated by several agencies of the federal government against a decorated three star general — a conspiracy that extended to members of Congress who are not immune from prosecution for felony crimes — in an explicit effort to overthrow President Donald J. Trump, such as Barack Obama, Susan Rice, John Brennan, James Clapper, James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Rod Rosenstein, Michael Atkinson, Loretta Lynch, Sally Yates, Dana Boente, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, Colonel Alexander Vindman, William Priestap, James Baker (DOJ), James Baker (DOD), Eric Ciaramella, Robert Mueller, Senator Richard Burr, Representative Adam Schiff and a huge litany of many others, must be charged, prosecuted and imprisoned or executed, according to the depth of their complicity, before the regular wheels of justice and faith in the system can ever be reestablished. [Bold text agreement by the Editor]

 

If nothing is resolved and the status quo stands ….. if they are allowed to get away free and clear from these terrible deeds against a fine man such as General Flynn and a sitting U.S. President, rogue agents of any future administration will remain free and clear to do the same, and much worse to the average American, and no one should want that to be America’s future.

Food for Thought!!

[Blog Editor: OR Think About Marxist-Dems, RINOs, MSM, Deep State and the Coronavirus!]

 

Author attribution: Burt Shur

Sent: 3/29/2020 10:41 AM

 

….Like everyone who is a conservative thinking person, there is more going [on] here than you and I realize. Think about this, our whole world came crashing down a month ago, right after the failed impeachment of our President. The Democrats have been on this hate, get rid of Trump at all cost since before he was even elected. I have completely changed my opinion of the Democrats, I had to take a hard look back in our history and as long as we voted for a Deep State politician everything was OK.

 

But, when we as a country started to realize something was drastically wrong and there was really no difference between Democrats and Republicans and that’s when things really changed. The last three Presidents (Clinton, Bush, and Obama) were all Globalists (NWO) also not to forget Bush Sr. who really brought the term NEW WORLD ORDER to Americans attention. Like I said once I looked back it really hit me that the Communist party has always been doing very-very bad things to keep their power. They will do whatever it takes to remain in power. So, the coronavirus as we all know started in China. Here’s the thing, China is a Communist country, they don’t like Trump because they want to call the shots and Trump said, no more. We have been taken advantage of for years. Look at how long we have been losing our manufacturing, were did it go, China. Who supported that? All the Bushes, all the Clinton’s, the Obama’s, and all their Administrations, all Democrats. Do you see where this is all leading? Democrats have sold their souls to China. Biden and Feinstein are just two of a huge number.

 

Obama is probably the most corrupt out of all Presidents. He’s also been around Communists his whole life. From his mother, to his mentor Frank Marshall Davis and his handler John Brennan. Are you getting it? Obama made a big mistake when he was running, he basically said, he was going to fundamentally change America, well, he really did and we let him do it. Blacks were taken in because here they finally had the first black President. Obama knew they would do that, but where Obamacare made a big mistake is he didn’t do anything for the black community. All he did do was divide Americans  when we were moving forward in stopping the racial divide. That all stopped with Obama. He has done so much damage and continues to do huge damage. He spied on Trump and OK’d everything to do with FISA GATE, RUSSIA GATE. There are supposedly a thousand sealed indictments and Obama’s name has to be on at least one.

 

Where am I going with all this? I’ve really tried very hard to see this emergency as a very bad situation that just happened completely independently and unfortunately right now when things in America were going so good. We have never had this many jobs, and wealth! Well, the last blow to all is this coronavirus. I believe it was loosed on purpose. China really didn’t like the idea of manufacturing going back to US and no control over all the money making of our trade imbalance and Trump was fixing (for We The People).

 

The Commie Democrats are in partnership with China to bring the economy down and shut America completely down. Why? To get Trump out of the Presidency, bring his numbers down below 30%, they want him out. Please, think about this they have thrown everything at Trump and he’s weathered all the assaults. No other President could do this. This pandemic is real all right, and it is dangerous and it is killing people. But where and why it started, brings me to only one conclusion.  All this is bigger than any of us can comprehend. Democrats want their power back and to rule our lives, and have the NWO… Trump put a stop to their scheme and they don’t like it! Every Deep State person (Democrats and some Republicans) need to be arrested and indicted.

 

My other question  is where is Durham and Huber and Barr? We have been very patient, but the indictments must come now! Either we have laws or we are truly done. This is America’s only chance to regain our independence and freedom and bring back what Trump has been fighting for – The America that our forefathers set forth in our Declaration of Independence and our Constitution. We cannot lose what we have fought and died for since 1776. I’m tired of Congress holding Americans hostages. You work for us and those that don’t are out, and I mean out now. All Democrats (including  Pelosi, Schumer, Waters, Omar, Talib, Cortez, Romney). If there is one thing I’ve learned from Trump is America first “period”!

 

Now comes the most disappointing part of what I’ve been saying. The MSM, all must be indicted on treason. That’s  CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, NBC, PNR. They all have tried to bring Trump down, which means bring us down! They are un-American! This must stop!

The Jessie Liu clue: A D.C. cover-up that IS Spygate

Four federal prosecutors resigned from their case on Tuesday when Attorney General William Barr overruled the sentencing recommendation they made for Roger Stone, whom Robert Mueller had forwarded charges against involving “five separate counts of lying to the House Intelligence Committee and two charges of obstructing a congressional investigation and intimidating a witness.”

 

Notably, the Justice Department’s lead counsel in the Stone case, Jessie Liu – the U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia – had recently turned over that role to Timothy Shea, because Ms. Liu had been nominated for a post at the U.S. Treasury.  Liu was also the lead counsel for some time on the Michael Flynn case.

 

On Tuesday, Trump withdrew the Liu nomination for the Treasury job, about the same time the four prosecutors, three of whom were members of the Mueller team, announced they were off the Stone case.  Liu was previously scheduled for a Senate hearing on Thursday.

In the interest of getting expeditiously to the meat of this post, I won’t rehash the whole story on this.  It can be gleaned at the links.  One thing is important to note, however, as we survey what looks very much like a major maneuver of some kind between the “swamp” and the Trump administration.

 

According to a DOJ source, the four prosecutors who left the Stone case on Tuesday changed their sentencing recommendation between the time they briefed it to the Department and their formal filing with the court.  The clear implication is that they told their bosses one thing, but then filed with the court for another.  The sentence they recommended – seven to nine years – was well outside the sentencing guidelines for the offenses, and the DOJ (according to the source) had not seen or approved it.  Rather, the DOJ thought the recommendation would be a different one.

 

At this initial stage, readers should draw their own conclusions about who is telling the truth here.  There is reason, at least, to believe that the formal sentencing recommendation was made without approval from the DOJ higher-ups.

 

That would be enough reason for the four prosecutors to be off the case.  But Jessie Liu wasn’t involved in the sentencing recommendation, so that incident, in itself, doesn’t explain why her nomination was withdrawn.

 

Enter the March 2017 handoff

 

This section of the analysis is what we might call a wholly-owned subsidiary of sundance at Conservative Treehouse, to whom the credit goes for the superb sleuthing that revealed a bottom line I’m going to state up-front.  It is fully developed by sundance, and for the essential background and documentation, please read the CTH article.

 

The bottom line is that some media outlets have had a complete copy of at least the first FISA application on Carter Page since March of 2017, when Senate Intelligence Committee official James Wolfe leaked it to four journalists, including his girlfriend Ali Watkins.  This is recorded in documents from James Wolfe’s prosecution, which were unsealed in 2018.

 

CTH points out what that means: that outlets like the New York Times, where Watkins later took a job, have known what was in the FISA application since shortly after the compromising handover by James Wolfe took place.  The date was 17 March 2017, two months after Trump took office, and long before the FISA applications were made available in redacted form to the public.

Moreover, Senator Mark Warner, the ranking member on the Senate Intelligence Committee, may have known about the compromise at the time it happened.

 

And Jessie Liu was the prosecutor who eventually accepted a plea from James Wolfe to a minimal charge, and effectively swept this bombshell leak of incendiary Top Secret material under the rug.  As pointed out at CTH, a core motive for this was the determination of Wolfe’s defense to call witnesses who would almost certainly have revealed that members of the Senate knew what Wolfe was doing.

 

Sundance calls this the “DC cover-up that’s as big as Spygate.”  Key aspects must be noted in that regard; e.g., that there are media outlets that must therefore be complicit in selling the pubic a bill of goods on the “FISA applications” narrative.  They’ve known all along what those applications contained, yet published as if they didn’t: not to protect national secrets, but to support a narrative that injured real people – through harassment and manufactured prosecutions – based on falsehoods that the FISA applications expose.

 

Sundance also makes a sound case that Mark Warner, and probably others, knew as well; not only what was in the FISA applications (which Warner had to know, having been authorized to read them unredacted in the SCIF), but that the FISA applications had been leaked to the media.

 

Again, it is certain that at least one of the first two FISA applications (from October 2016 and January 2017) constituted the material leaked.  A sentencing document filed by the DOJ in December 2018 makes that clear.  It may have been only the first application that was leaked; I discuss that below.

 

This is undoubtedly enough of a compromising situation for some in the Senate to not want it coming out in a confirmation hearing for Jessie Liu.  Sundance prepared some good, suggested questions for the now-canceled hearing.  But I doubt members of the Senate would really want the answers coming out in public – or even just the implications raised by the questions.

 

This was Spygate

 

I would go further than sundance, meanwhile, and say that this cover-up isn’t merely as big as Spygate.  It is Spygate.  It was part and parcel of the effort to gain advantage over Trump and take him down, an effort that started before he was even elected, and one whose full panoply of methods we still haven’t grasped.

 

To lay it out, I’ll start by noting something that hadn’t clicked into place with me until sundance highlighted it in the post linked above.  I had followed the James Wolfe case, knew about Jessie Liu’s role, and even understood that the classified material involved – i.e., leaked by Wolfe –  was related to the FISA applications.

 

But it hadn’t registered meaningfully with me that Wolfe leaked the material on 17 March 2017.

 

Recognizing the significance of that specific date makes the difference in how we see the event and its motivation.  Why?  Because during that period, Devin Nunes was working on a set of requests for the executive agencies which included FISA applications, and information about “unmasking” actions taken by federal authorities.

 

Devin Nunes (Image: Screen grab of Fox News video, YouTube)

 

Nunes had sent a demand – disclosed to the Washington Post on 15 March – to the NSA, CIA, and FBI for information from them on whose names had been “unmasked” from incidental (non-targeted) electronic surveillance, in the period of the Trump transition (and probably some additional time on either side of it).

 

But he also sent a separate request to the Justice Department specifically for FISA applications.

 

In February 2018, the Lawfare blog posted a handy (if hostile) timeline of Nunes’s efforts to figure out what was going on with the unmasking.  Most Spygate followers will chiefly remember Nunes’s dramatic press conferences later in March of 2017.

 

But he had gained sharpened awareness of the unmasking as an issue when it became clear, with the David Ignatius article in the Washington Post on 11 January 2017, that Michael Flynn had been unmasked in a phone call with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.

 

Nunes fully understood the relationship between FISA-authorized surveillance and unmasking.  And he knew that it would be necessary to look into the records on both aspects of intelligence processing to determine what had been going on.

 

VIDEO: Devin Nunes: Trump Communications ‘Incidentally’ Collected By Intelligence Agencies | NBC News

 

 [Posted by NBC News

1.84M subscribers – Mar 22, 2017

 

Devin Nunes, the Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee tells press he has been notified that Trump team communications have been “incidentally,” legally collected. He also said more names involved in Trump campaign have been unmasked but MORE TO READ]

 

After President Trump sent his famous 4 March 2017 tweets about having been “wiretapped” by Obama, Nunes and Adam Schiff, the ranking member on the House Intelligence Committee, sent a letter to the acting attorney general (Dana Boente) requesting “copies of any applications the Justice Department submitted to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, any orders that the court released, and any copies of warrants issued by federal judges or magistrates regarding Trump, his campaign surrogates, business associates, employees, family and friends.”  The timeframe requested was the year 2016.

 

That letter was sent 8 March 2017.  And note this about it: whatever your opinion of Devin Nunes, one thing no one would say of him is that he was complicit with either anti-Trump media or anti-Trump officials (i.e., “deep staters”) inside the government.

 

Thus, his letter of 8 March would have been the first communication from such a person – an official outside the anti-Trump circle – posing formal questions, to which the Carter Page FISA applications had to be the answer.

 

In other words, Nunes was taking aim at the real target.  (Something I noted at the time; see my link on his 22 March 2017 press conference, above.)

 

Don’t get ahead of me here, because understanding this as a Spygate episode requires seeing it whole.  Nunes and Schiff gave the DOJ a deadline of 13 March to respond.  On 13 March, the DOJ requested more time.  Nunes’s office told the media that if there was no response before FBI Director James Comey testified to the House committee the following Monday (20 March), Nunes would request the information during Comey’s hearing, and would subpoena it if necessary.

 

On 17 March, the day the FISA applications were made available in the SCIF on Capitol Hill, Nunes then provided this very informative statement to the media: “The Committee is satisfied that the Department of Justice has fully complied with our request for information from our March 8 letter on possible surveillance related to Donald Trump or his associates.”

 

That statement comports perfectly with what we would expect if the DOJ had forwarded copies of its 2016 applications made to the FISA court, including the Carter Page application.

 

Note two things.  One, fulfilling this request from Nunes and Schiff would have been the reason the Carter Page FISA application was sent to the Hill on 17 March 2017.

 

Mark Warner and the Senate Intelligence staff would have known the request had been made – and known that the documents were coming on the 17th – because Warner was in the Intelligence Gang of Eight, and Schiff would have shared it with him, at a minimum.

Two, only the first Carter Page application, from October 2016, would have met the terms of the House Intelligence Committee request, which was for applications made in 2016.

 

That’s why I think it’s probable that only the first FISA application was leaked to the media on 17 March 2017.

 

A decision point, identified

 

But of more importance is the point that Nunes was the catalyst for shaking it out of the DOJ.  That means that at the time the FISA application was leaked, and indeed for at least a couple of weeks before, some group of Deep Staters was closely attuned already to the significance of Nunes’s role and what he was trying to do.  They knew he was on the hunt for a trail of activity that would lead back to them.

 

The interval between 13 and 17 March is thus an intriguing one.  The DOJ asked for more time on 13 March, but apparently without previewing anything it was committing to.  By 17 March, it had delivered the Carter Page FISA application, along with the others from 2016.

 

That tells me a decision was made between 13 and 17 March to deploy the Carter Page application rather than trying to keep it under wraps.  The method of deployment was sending it to Capitol Hill.

 

This would constitute circumstantial evidence of the collusion that sundance postulates, presumably involving actors other than James Wolfe on Capitol Hill – and suggesting cooperation with the Justice Department, which sent the FISA application, and the media, whose members received the leak from Wolfe.

 

On Tuesday 21 March, the day after Comey’s 20 March hearing, Nunes made his famous visit to the White House complex and viewed material on the unmasking of U.S. persons, an inspection arranged for him by officials inside the White House.  The next day, 22 March, Nunes briefed his concerns to the media, setting off a firestorm.

 

There were other events in the ensuing timeline; read them at your leisure.  I’ll skip ahead to the one on 30 March, when as Lawfare recounts, “The New York Times reports that Ezra Cohen-Watnick, the National Security Council’s senior director for intelligence, and Michael Ellis, a lawyer in the White House counsel’s office working on national security issues, provided Nunes the intelligence documents he referenced in his March 22 press conference.”

 

The events highlighted above, including that last one, are the ones that matter.

 

The Nunes events make this Spygate

 

The date 17 March 2017 was not happenstance.  Because Devin Nunes was probing for information about surveillance of the Trump team, there were quite a few people on Capitol Hill – and in the media – who would be motivated to set a counter-operation in motion at the first opportunity.

 

It’s easy to identify 17 March 2017 as that opportunity, because that’s the date stamped on the “official copy” of the Carter Page FISA application that made its way to the Hill.

 

But can we find the outlines of a Deep State/anti-Trump plan here?  Can we justify thinking in terms of collusion, and supposing that multiple people were involved in taking advantage of that opportunity?

 

There are strong reasons to say yes.  They relate to two circumstances.  One is the 30 March New York Times article identifying two individuals as Devin Nunes’s contacts in the White House.

 

The other is the very first event in the Lawfare timeline: 11 November 2016, when Nunes was appointed as an adviser to the Trump transition team.

 

Trump-transition-Trump-Tower – AFP video, YouTube (screen capture)

 

That means Nunes himself had been subject to being dragnetted in the Carter Page surveillance, by the two-hop rule, since 11 November 2016.

 

Nunes probably wasn’t the only one on Capitol Hill, for that matter.  But once he was seriously on the hunt for FISA and unmasking information – which would lead to the activity trail of the anti-Trump surveillance – the motive to keep him under surveillance would have been exceptionally strong.  He met that definition by mid-February 2017 at the latest.

 

Remember, it’s not “wiretapping” we’re talking about.  It’s not listening in on phone calls.  The method would have been retrieving “non-contents” information from telecom providers, using tailored queries that met the criteria authorized by the Carter Page FISA warrant.  That kind of surveillance, covering phone calls, texts, and other instant messages, could be done without the subject or anyone connected with him ever knowing.

 

If Deep State planners were tracking Nunes, they had not only the motive to drop the Carter Page FISA application to the Hill, and thence to the media, on 17 March 2017, but the means to foresee that Nunes’s contacts with the White House would lead very soon to his being afforded a look at what had been going on there.  They were alerted, in other words, to the danger to themselves, in time to take planned and deliberate advantage of the FISA application’s arrival on Capitol Hill.

 

Tracking Nunes (and probably the other two individuals named by the New York Times) was also a likely and accurate way to identify Nunes’s White House contacts(s).  It had the merit of not requiring an initial cue from a source who actually witnessed the interactions.  Knowing whom Nunes had been in contact with, his monitors could then ask intelligent questions of White House leakers who had only incidental awareness of what others in their vicinity were doing.

 

Pulling Liu’s nomination

 

If I were Trump and Barr, and had assembled information pointing in essence to a scenario like this – or were still in the process of assembling it – I wouldn’t want the Jessie Liu confirmation hearing to trip landmines before their time.

 

Trump wouldn’t withdraw the Liu nomination merely out of misplaced compassion for embarrassed senators or Deep Staters.  He’d have good reasons to do it for his own purposes (with or without a dramatic event like the four prosecutors’ departure).

 

One of those reasons would be that Jessie Liu probably doesn’t belong in the job at Treasury.  Whatever else she knew about James Wolfe and the Senate Intelligence Committee in the March 2017 timeframe, she knew that the classified material Wolfe leaked to the media was the Carter Page FISA application.  She was apparently willing to cooperate in keeping that explosive information out of the public eye.

 

It may be that Liu was less culpably complicit than willing to go along, on the sidelines of an ambiguous situation, under pressure from higher echelon.  We needn’t have a bloodthirsty attitude about Liu, per se.

 

But here’s what we do need to have: an accounting to the American people, before even one more official involved in very questionable actions by the government gets another pass.

 

The people have trusted the system in the blind long enough.  No reckoning – no happy-face career progression for the known participants.  If you want to object, go sell it to Michael Flynn and his family. (Or sell it to Roger Stone. DOJ let James Wolfe off with a two-month sentence.)

 

An additional reason for pulling the Liu nomination is simply that it may not be time to detonate the landmine yet.  John Durham is doing his job.  He, Barr, and Trump will know when it’s time.

Intro to ‘Biden Rocked By Federal Complaint…’


Intro by John R. Houk, Blog Editor

Intro © February 1, 2020

 

Joe Biden and his family are slowly beginning to look as crooked as Hillary. This means crookedness is a part of the Dem Party DNA. It also means the Dem Party is soooooooooooo crooked, its leadership needs to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law and tossed in jail effectively eradicating the Dem Party existence.

The light of day is exposing Quid Quo Pro Joe as a guy that should never be a candidate for POTUS. Also Crooked Joe could just be a part of the nexus of the Impeachment coup against President Trump using Ukraine way more than Russia interfering in the 2016 Election process.

 

Here’s a story on what I’m talking about that has a pedigree line of info distribution that flows like this:

 

First read it at MeWe Group Donald J Trump 2020 posted by Holly Sours – Admin; which abbreviated a post on Right Wing Tribune entitled “Biden Rocked By Federal Complaint Filed By Ukrainian Prosecutor Who He Insisted Was Fired”; and it appear RWT picked the story up from Illicit Info Opinion Blog under the same title as RWT.

Biden Rocked By Federal Complaint Filed By Ukrainian Prosecutor Who He Insisted Was Fired

 

Posted by HJIC

Illicit Info Opinion Blog

 

The DS didn’t really think that this impeachment circus was going to stop the truth about what went on in Ukraine during the previous administration from coming out, did they?

 

Well, if they did it looks like they are sorely mistaken.

 

Chanel Rion

 

We know that one of the President’s attorneys, Rudy Giuliani, has been to the scene of the ‘alleged’ crimes with Chanel Rion of One America News.

 

Viktor Shokin & Rudy Giuliani

 

It looks like Joe Biden’s absurdly arrogant mistake, bragging about getting Ukrainian prosecutor, Viktor Shokin, fired is going to come back to bite him in the … well, you know … very soon.

 

The Gateway Pundit explained

 

‘Joe Biden made the remarks during a meeting of foreign policy specialists. Biden said he, “Threatened Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko in March 2016 that the Obama administration would pull $1 billion in U.S. loan guarantees, sending the former Soviet republic toward insolvency, if it didn’t immediately fire Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin.” Biden suggested during his talk that Barack Obama was in on the threat.

 

In April John Solomon revealed what Biden did not tell his audience. Joe Biden had Shokin fired because he was investigating Joe Biden’s son Hunter.’

When OANN’s Rion traveled to Ukraine she interviewed the prosecutor whom Biden insisted was fired, Viktor Shokin, and here is what he had to say:

Seems like some pretty damning testimony from the man in the arena, I wonder if Adam Schiff will call Shokin to testify in the Senate impeachment trial.  Just kidding, I’m not holding my breath.

 

GWP went on to explain ‘On Tuesday fired Ukrainian prosecutor Viktor Shokin filed an official complaint against Joe Biden for interference in Ukraine’s legal proceedings.’

 

French news Les Crisis reported:

 

Today we present you this exclusive document: the complaint of former Ukrainian prosecutor Viktor Shokin against Joe Biden for interference in the legal proceedings of Ukraine – which incidentally cites our UkraineGate investigation …

 

Shokin Complaint against Joe Biden

 

To the interim director of the National Bureau of Investigation

 

COMPLAINT [against Joe Biden]

 

On the commission of a criminal offense

 

(under article 214 of the Criminal Procedure Code of Ukraine)

 

I have read and understood Article 63 of the Constitution of Ukraine and the liability provided for in Article 383 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine “Slanderous denunciation of an offense”.

 

Shokin V.M. (signature).

 

During the period 2014-2016, the Prosecutor General’s Office of Ukraine was conducting a preliminary investigation into a series of serious crimes committed by the former Minister of Ecology of Ukraine Mykola Zlotchevsky and by the managers of the company “Burisma Holding Limited “(Cyprus), the board of directors of which included, among others, Hunter Biden, son of Joseph Biden, then vice-president of the United States of America.

 

The investigation into the above-mentioned crimes was carried out in strict accordance with Criminal Law and was under my personal control as the Prosecutor General of Ukraine.

 

Owing to my firm position on the above-mentioned cases regarding their prompt and objective investigation, which should have resulted in the arrest and the indictment of the guilty parties, Joseph Biden developed a firmly hostile attitude towards me which led him to express in private conversations with senior Ukrainian officials, as well as in his public speeches, a categorical request for my immediate dismissal from the post of Attorney General of Ukraine in exchange for the sum of US $ 1 billion in as a financial guarantee from the United States for the benefit of Ukraine.

 

The facts I have described above are confirmed, among other things, by the official interview of Joseph Biden published in the media (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iHoXh42BraI), where he declares that Ukraine will not receive money if I remain in my post as Attorney General.

 

Throughout the last months of 2015 and the first months of 2016 Joseph Biden, taking advantage of his position, came several times on official visits to Ukraine in order to negotiate with the leaders of the country my eviction and, consequently, the closing of the objective investigation into the offenses committed by persons associated with the company “Burisma Holding Limited” (Cyprus), including the son of the aforementioned US official.

 

Due to continued pressure from the Vice President of the United States Joseph Biden to oust me from the job by blackmailing the allocation of financial assistance, I, as the man who places the State interests above my personal interests, I agreed to abandon the post of Prosecutor General of Ukraine.

 

After my resignation caused by illegal pressure, no active investigation into the offenses concerning the company “Burisma Holding Limited” (Cyprus) was carried out and, therefore, the persons implicated in these offenses were not identified, nor arrested or charged.

 

According to the conclusions of the International Law Association of 18.04.2017, made by the doctor of law, Professor O.O. Merezhko, at the time vice-president of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, the request of the Vice-President of the United States Joseph Biden concerning my ousting from the post of the Attorney General of Ukraine as a condition for the granting of financial (economic) assistance is qualified as pressure, which represents interference in the internal affairs of Ukraine on the part of a foreign power in violation of one of the principles of international law.

 

Moreover, the facts of pressure on me as Prosecutor General of Ukraine from Joseph Biden in the circumstances described above are confirmed by an independent journalistic investigation under the name “UkraineGate” conducted and published by the French online media “Les-Crises.fr” available at this link https://ukrainegate.info/part-2-not-so-dormant-investigations.    Read the rest at Les Crisis.

 

Since we can not count on the legislature to do anything other than get fat on the tax payer’s dime and cover up one another’s crimes and shenanigans, Shokin is taking the ball on going on offense.

 

I for one can not wait to see what evidence and witnesses Shokin presents.  Oh, and as for the lefties who think it is funny that I am calling for witnesses in the case Shokin brought, I am all for witnesses in Trump’s trial, I just want the playing field to be level.

 

How about you call whoever you choose, and let team Trump call Schiff, Hunter, Joe, ‘the whistleblower’ Schiff’s staff member who met with ‘the whistleblower’, Shokin, Zelensky, Soros, HRC, Congressman Stockton …

 

However, that would be a fair trial and I do not think there is a person in this country who believes the trial in the Senate will be fair …

When Senate Acquits Trump, What then will CIA Do?


John R. Houk

© January 30, 2020

Everyone knows – even the lyin’-cryin’ Dems – the Senate will acquit President Trump of House Dem fabricated crimes in their Articles of Impeachment. Since acquittal is all but assured, I came across an AMTV video entitled, “CIA CONSIDERING NUCLEAR OPTION AFTER PRESIDENT TRUMP’S ACQUITTAL!!!”. The 6-minute and 51-second video is by Chad Boukzam.

 

Boukzam asserts the whole Impeachment process was ignited by Deep State mechanizations within the CIA. Boukzam then speculates a Senate acquittal will lead to a “nuclear option” to get rid of President Trump.

 

So, the question is: What is the CIA “nuclear option”. Boukzam use the phrase in the video – “lethal option”.

 

You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to figure out what the “lethal option” is referring to in relation to President Trump. The lethal option is the assassination of President Donald Trump to not only remove him from the Office of President but to also terminate his life.

 

If you think part of the spy business of the CIA does not include targeted assassinations you are a human ostrich with your head in the sand. If a robustly healthy Donald Trump dies mysteriously or ostentatiously this Boukzam video will come to my mind.

Personal Thoughts Leading to B.D. Wright Deep State Interview


Intro by John R. Houk

Intro © January 26, 2020

Frank Camp in a Daily Wire interview with a former CIA employee Bryan Dean Wright about the machination of an America Deep State. Wright self-describes himself as a lifelong Dem which for me has become a dirty word in the English language.

 

In the part one of the interview he describes Dems of his admiration in the past contrasted with present day Dems epitomized by AOC and Bernie Sanders. A point I can relate to because I grew up in a Dem Party family hailing from the Pacific Northwest just as Wright.

 

My Dem family’s devotion to Dems was due to their perception it was the Franklin Roosevelt Dems that saved Americans from starvation resulting from joblessness of the Great Depression. (I have since learned my family’s perception was probably misplaced of actual facts were more public in 1930s, 40s, 50s and right into the 60s. BUT that’s another story.) The Dem Senators of my childhood and early teen years were Henry (Scoop) Jackson and Warren Magnuson. Both Jackson and Magnuson were old fashioned Americans more concerned about benefitting the State of Washington they represented than the USA at large. Jackson in his day was considered a Liberal yet extremely Anti-Communist to the point of committing the U.S. Military to confront Communist expansionism. In essence Jackson was a motivated Anti-Communist Hawk more than he was a Liberal. It is this personal memory of Jackson I have that convinces me the Jackson of yesteryear would have deserted the Democratic Party of today because of that political Party’s lurch toward Marxist Socialism.

 

WELL … Back to Pacific Northwest exposer of the Deep State Dem Bryan Dean Wright. Wright is going out on limb exposing how the Deep State is operating ergo I half-way suspect a tragic accident, mysterious suicide or unexplained homicide might be in his future. I pray not.

 

Below is a cross post of The Daily Wire interview that was posted on 1/25 and 1/26/20.

INTERVIEW (Part I): Former CIA Officer Explains The Shocking Details And Dangers Of The ‘Deep State’

 

By  Frank Camp

January 25, 2020

The Daily Wire

 

Bryan Dean Wright – Photo by Molly Condit

 

Over the last several years, the term “Deep State” has been used frequently by both President Trump, during speeches and on social media, as well as by some Trump-supporting pundits. President Trump and the commentators who support him often use the term to describe a group of bureaucratic insiders who want the president out of office.

 

These individuals represent a loosely-connected web of unelected bureaucrats, often left over from previous administrations, who allegedly utilize their intel and reach in order to disrupt the agenda of the president and his allies.

 

But what exactly is the Deep State? Who exactly are the Deep State players? What damage can they do? And what can be done to stop them?

 

On Wednesday, I had the opportunity to speak with Bryan Dean Wright, a former CIA officer who now serves as a contract instructor for the military. Wright, a self-described “lifelong Democrat,” was not only able to answer my questions about the Deep State, but provide incredible insight into this not-so-well-understood world of leakers and bad actors.

 

In part one of this interview, Wright discusses his own background in the CIA, the origins of what we would call the modern “Deep State,” the bad actors operating from the inside, the damage they have done, and much more.

 

DW: What was your former job at the CIA?

WRIGHT: I first served as an operations officer. These are the folks that, in short, go abroad to recruit spies and steal secrets. I did that for a number of years, then transitioned to the private sector and did some work in New York. I went back into the agency after a hiatus and served as what’s called a targeting officer. That role finds the people and organizations that can fill in the gaps of our understanding of particular adversaries, specifically their leadership and their plans and intentions. I developed targeting packages of how to get in front of those people and recruit them as clandestine sources.

DW: Why did you decide to leave the agency?

WRIGHT: The original reason back in the mid-2000s was because my brother needed to go into rehab for his alcohol addiction, and unfortunately my family didn’t have the money to send him. So, I had to go in the private sector and earn it. Once I was able to do that – after my brother achieved his sobriety – I got back into the agency.

And then in December of 2015, I left for the second and final time. The reason I left then was more out of sorrow and anger for what I saw happening. And it really gets to the issue of the “Deep State.” I met with a bunch of people that were tied-in to some of our covert action operations – I was reviewing and auditing them – and these senior executives weren’t taking it seriously or tried to hinder my efforts. A lot of people didn’t want to have accountability for their failures. Or, secondarily, they didn’t want to have to go back to the National Security Council or even the President or Vice President and say, “Actually, what we’ve been telling you was wrong, or it wasn’t quite true.” And so I became very frustrated and I just didn’t see myself being complicit with that degree of unprofessionalism at a minimum or flat out treachery at worst. So, I transitioned out.

DW: What is your primary job now?

WRIGHT: I serve as a contract instructor for the military – and some of those details I can’t dive into at present – but that’s part of what I do. And I spend a lot of time writing and going on different TV outlets, Fox in particular, to talk in part about national security-related issues.

I also write and talk a lot about politics. As a lifelong Democrat, I share with my readers and audiences what I see as this horrific drift by the party away from what I grew up with in the Pacific Northwest: a moderate, sensible Democratic Party. For instance, I remember men like Tom Foley, former Speaker of the House, who was from rural Eastern Washington. Or a guy like Cecil Andrus, a sensible, no-nonsense Democratic Governor of Idaho. These folks are the Democrats who I grew up with, and my family was a part of. But that is no longer the party that we see. Instead, we see the party of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Tom Perez, and it’s these absolute bonkers elements that I don’t identify with, are horrifying, and I think ultimately will bring the entirety of the Democratic Party down. And if that’s what has to happen, well, I hope the Republicans can keep a light on for me.

DW: So, what is the “Deep State?” We hear it all the time in conservative media, especially on outlets like Fox News. But what is the “Deep State” really?

WRIGHT: To understand the Deep State, you have to understand a man named Aldrich Ames. He was a CIA officer who, in the 1980s, decided to commit treason and work for the Soviet Union, and his treachery cost the lives of many of our Soviet agents. When Ames was asked why he did it, his response was this, “I know what’s best for foreign policy and national security … and I’m going to act on that.” That’s the definition and the ethos of the Deep State. It’s an unelected group of men and women with profound powers of the surveillance state who use those powers to advance their own interests, whether it be personal or partisan.

And that last bit I think is important. Why do they do it? In the distant past, guys like Aldrich Ames, they’d leak to our enemies because of ego and for money. But in the recent past, like what we’ve seen with Former FBI Director James Comey, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, and former Director of the CIA John Brennan, they’re leaking to The New York Times or CNN because, yes ego and money, but clearly a sense of partisan warfare. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t discount their ego and monetary motivations. I mean, look, they’ve taken paid media contributorships and I’m sure it makes them feel very important. But what we’re seeing is more than that. It’s partisan, and it’s personal. I think that’s different and that’s frightening. I would say that, in essence, is the “Deep State,” and that is what’s driving Deep State actors today.

DW: This may be a bit of a redundant question, but who are the Deep State? Who would you identify as major Deep State actors?

WRIGHT: In the recent past, Comey, Brennan, Clapper are the most obvious, big names. But based on the IG reports, we’re also seeing more mid-level bureaucrats, like the Lisa Pages and the Peter Strzoks and the Bruce Ohrs. These are Deep Staters: folks who are unelected and frankly unaccountable to anyone, using their power and knowledge to satisfy a personal agenda, irrespective of the law. That’s certainly what we’ve seen in the IG reports regarding Crossfire Hurricane, and it’s clear that these bureaucrats had no problem executing their own partisan or personal agendas believing their relative anonymity would hide them from accountability.

I think that those individuals are just the ones we know about. And I think, God willing, Attorney General Bill Barr and United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut John Durham are going to flush out other actors and bring them to account, and lead to further clarity on if indeed the Comeys and Brennans and Clappers of the intelligence community can be brought forward on charges. That’s certainly the hope if the facts allow.

DW: In what malign activities specifically have members of this Deep State participated?

WRIGHT: Let’s start with Comey. We know that he was leaking to The New York Times, and he wasn’t leaking because he had any reasonable belief that President Trump was up to no good. I mean, the IG has shown conclusively that he was leaking to advance his own personal interests. In fact, [it] labeled Comey as a dangerous example to the tens of thousands of current and former FBI employees. So, that opens up this horrific floodgate of the Aldrich Ames ethos that, if you think that you know best for national security or foreign policy, that you, FBI employee, can damage whomever you’d like. You, Mr. FBI or CIA employee, who has access to secret human or signals intelligence – emails, phone calls – you get to decide what material should be leaked to kneecap politicians you don’t like. Oh, and you will face no consequences for it! That, I think, is the horrific legacy that Comey leaves behind.

And again, let’s emphasize something here: Comey knew early on that Trump was not going to be found guilty of having engaged in impropriety with the Russian government. Comey had participated with others in the intelligence community to investigate these allegations. He and the others knew, in early 2017 if not before, that there was nothing there. Think of this: if the intelligence community had any information in 2016 or 2017 that Trump was a Russian spy, they wouldn’t have sat on it. They would have immediately gotten it to Mueller or folks on Capitol Hill, and they would have rightfully brought that forward to the American people and removed the president. But that didn’t happen.

So, certainly Comey has a very clear record, demonstrated record, of doing a number of things that weren’t just atypical, but that were wrong. And again, I think that’s what AG Barr and John Durham are trying to fully flush out.

I think that the other characters – John Brennan especially, but also Comey and Clapper – used the dossier and Christopher Steele as pawns in a political game. Both Steele and his dossier were known to be unreliable in the fall of 2016. Indeed, by mid January 2017, Brennan was specifically on record as saying he gave the dossier no particular credence, according to The Wall Street Journal. Well, that’s amazing. Because they included that dossier in a brief to not only then President-elect Trump, but to then President Obama and Joe Biden and, of course, the principals on Capitol Hill. Why would they have done that? There was no legal or intelligence value. They knew Steele and the dossier were verified garbage. But they briefed it anyway. To lots of people.

As a former intelligence officer, I can tell you that this isn’t normal operating procedure. At all. You don’t brief an unvetted document like the dossier to the president-elect and tell him that he’s a corrupt Russian traitor. And you certainly wouldn’t do it if you had already done a degree of investigation and found that there was no veracity to any of the claims. I mean, hell, you don’t even have to be an intelligence officer to understand that.

But what Steele and his dossier lacked in legal or intelligence value, both more than made up for it in political value. And Brennan, Comey, and Clapper knew it. They knew how damaging it would be to Trump if America were to believe the dossier’s allegations. They just needed to give the news media a hook to run with the claims, which were widely known in Washington but went unreported because they were unverified. So their solution, it turns out, was to make themselves the media’s necessary hook. By their simple act of briefing the dossier to so many, it gave credence to the claims and that in fact the dossier existed. Naturally, the Resistance Media – which went all in against President Trump – was happy to distribute their propaganda.

Let me emphasize: the dossier had been refuted by the intelligence community after considerable investigation. There was no legal or intelligence value to briefing the dossier. In fact, the CIA at the time was calling it “internet rumor.” But Brennan, Comey, and Clapper clearly didn’t care. Why? Because they had an end goal: if they could get the media to report on this dossier, then that would be effectively the end of the Trump presidency, or certainly put the president on his heels for a couple of years. They would utterly kneecap him. At least that was their hope.

So, I think that that is the gravest example of Deep State treachery.

DW: To what extent does the media participate in enabling these Deep State actors to do what they want and feel they need to do, and how should that be approached?

WRIGHT: The most obvious and demonstrable connection between these Deep State actors and the media is that guys like Comey, Brennan, and Clapper now, to varying degrees, have paid contributorships with media outlets. Think of it: we know that they were leaking classified information to these outlets when they were government employees, and now they have jobs with them. I mean, my god, what does that tell other intelligence community professionals? What are the consequence for breaking the law? Because, as of today, my former colleagues can apparently leak based on their own personal or partisan agenda to the media, and then, in turn, can get a great, cushy job from that same media outlet when they quit or retire. That’s a horrifying example with profound consequences to our Republic because you’re incentivizing intelligence professionals to leak or kneecap people they don’t like. If that takes root, what in the hell will prevent us from becoming Pakistan or Egypt? These countries, by the way, are run by the intelligence or military communities, sprinkled with a veneer of democracy.

Is that what we are to become? Because that really is the end result of allowing a politicized intelligence community to go unchecked. And that’s why Barr and Durham’s work is so important. These people have to be held to account.

Now at the same time, it’s not just the media who are gaining from this. They’re also being manipulated by the Brennans, the Comeys, and the Clappers. In March of 2018, for example, The Daily Beast reported that Brennan and Clapper were doing a roadshow around the country to various elite groups and big money people, and they stopped by Hollywood. Brennan told them that Trump would not finish out the year (2018) as President of the United States; he would be removed because of his treacherous relationship with Vladimir Putin and the Russians.

Clapper was also there, and they were doing this to both create and then fan the flames of hysteria. Remember that their audience was made up of the Hollywood elites, the very individuals who control or contribute mightily to the public sphere, create narratives, create truth. So, it is not an accident that Brennan and Clapper would be there in Hollywood in March of 2018 spreading these lies. Again, they knew that the Trump/Russia narrative wasn’t true but, as with the dossier, they needed the media to continue to manipulate the American people to achieve their political end. And who better to have in their back pocket than those Hollywood executives who have our eyeballs and our ears, whether it be on movie screens or television screens. Brennan and Clapper needed them because they needed hysteria. And that’s precisely what they’ve been committed to. Virulently and unapologetically so.

DW: There are criticisms, mostly from the Left, that the “Deep State” is blamed for every bad thing that surrounds the Trump presidency and the administration. It’s almost like a joke to many people on the Left. “Oh, the Deep State! It must be the Deep State!” Is the idea of the Deep State in any way overblown? And if so, to what degree?

WRIGHT: You know, in 2017, when Sen. Chuck Schumer, the Senate minority leader, was being interviewed by Rachel Maddow, she was telling him about Trump’s taking on the CIA or the intelligence community, and his response, then and now, was so illustrative and so jaw dropping.

If you recall, he said, “If you take on the intelligence community, they have six ways from Sunday to get back at you.” So, Chuck Schumer recognizes that the Deep State is real, and that they will exact revenge at a time and a place and on people of their choosing.

Let’s pause for a second and really think about the modern Left’s response to the fact that the Deep State is real, and that these intelligence officials will decide our nation’s political winners and losers. Really consider Chuck Schumer’s flippant acceptance of it all. I can’t imagine a more horrifying thing for any person of any party to say ever – because think of the consequence of that. The modern American Left is basically saying, “You know, we love those Deep State guys. They’re real, and we love it because Orange Man Bad. And they’ll take this guy out for us. Because we just don’t like him.”

I mean, they’re incentivizing a bunch of people to continue to break the law because it fits their temporary, short-term partisan goals. Never mind the fact that they’re setting a brush fire to the Republic. I mean, it’s amazing to me knowing how many folks on the Left who have been so virulently opposed to the CIA and FBI, given some of the sins, unquestionable sins – starting in the 40s and ramping up through the Cold War in the 50s, through the 70s and 80s – to now see that our own “progressive” leadership is somehow winking and nudging with our good friends like John Brennan and the rest because they’re taking on Orange Man. So, this suggestion by the people on the Left, my fellow Democrats, who would say, “Well, that’s just silly. It’s a conspiracy…” Well, they need to take it up with Chuck Schumer because he thinks the Deep State is real, too. And he fears them.

DW: Is this type of behavior something that has gone on for a long time?

WRIGHT: The short answer is yes. There is a history of individuals who get this profound power when working for the FBI or the CIA or NSA and abuse it. I can tell you, I worked with individuals who used their abilities to tap phone calls and emails to look after ex-boyfriends or ex-spouses. And those individuals were eventually found out and rightfully fired. In other words, human frailty – or the part of the human condition that is indeed so frail as to be given profound powers and then use them for ill – that has always existed, and that will always exist. That’s why it’s so important to conduct oversight of law enforcement and intelligence, and indeed military communities.

The difference, though, from that unfortunate low level abuse of power is that the treachery of modern Deep State actors – Comey, Brennan, and Clapper – is that they wanted to overrule the American voters. They wanted to upend the free and fair election of Donald Trump. They wanted to choose a different leader to run the nation. Their purpose in leaking to the media was to take out a duly-elected president because they either didn’t like the guy or they wanted Hillary Clinton to win. Many of them, I suspect, liked Clinton because they knew that they were going to have positions of authority or influence in her administration.

That degree of audacity I think is new, and I think that it is incredibly dangerous. And the lack of focus on that treachery is one of the profound lost opportunities of our political class, particularly on the Left, of the past few years. They could have said, “The actions of Comey, Clapper, and Brennan were horrifically wrong and they should face justice. And, meanwhile, we oppose the president on X, Y, and Z policies.” That would have been the right thing to do. As an opposition party, you can do both of those things, but that’s not what the Left has done. That’s certainly not what Pelosi and Schumer and our friends Rep. Adam Schiff and Rep. Jerry Nadler are doing right now with the impeachment.

All of this has been 100% focused on bringing down the president from day one, instead of having a much more balanced, nuanced approach to his presidency. And I think, and frankly I hope, that that’s why the Democratic Party loses in 2020. I don’t know of any other way to get rid of the rot that is in Washington, and within the leadership of the Democratic Party. Because if a progressive wins – Sen. Elizabeth Warren or, God forbid, Sen. Bernie Sanders – or even if Joe Biden wins, the lesson for the Democratic leadership, the lesson for the media, will not be that their treachery was bad, but that it worked.

In part two of this interview, which will be released on Sunday, Wright talks about what the Deep State would look like if a Democrat wins in 2020, what can be done to root out these malign actors, what the media can do, the dangers of normalizing socialism, and more.

INTERVIEW (Part II): Former CIA Officer On What The ‘Deep State’ Looks Like If A Democrat Wins In 2020, And What Can Be Done To Recover

Over the last several years, the term “Deep State” has been used frequently by both President Trump, during speeches and on social media, as well as by some Trump-supporting pundits. President Trump and the commentators who support him often use the term to describe a group of bureaucratic insiders who want the president out of office.

 

These individuals represent a loosely-connected web of unelected bureaucrats, often left over from previous administrations, allegedly who utilize their intel and reach in order to disrupt the agenda of the president and his allies.

 

But what exactly is the Deep State? Who exactly are the Deep State players? What damage can they do? And what can be done to stop them?

 

On Wednesday, I had the opportunity to speak with Bryan Dean Wright, a former CIA officer who now serves as a contract instructor for the military. Wright, a self-described “lifelong Democrat,” was not only able to answer my questions about the Deep State, but provide incredible insight into this not-so-well-understood world of leakers and bad actors.

 

In part one of this interview, which you can read here, Wright discussed his own background in the CIA, the origins of what we would today call the “Deep State,” the bad actors operating from the inside, the damage they have done, and more.

 

In part two below, Wright talks about what the Deep State might look like if a Democrat wins 2020, what can be done to rein in the Deep State, what the media can do, as well as the way President Trump has brought this bureaucratic monster into the light.

 

DW: Do you believe that if a Democrat is elected in 2020, the Deep State actors will continue to disseminate information, but for the other side? Are there proportionate actors on both sides, or is it disproportionate leaking on one side?

WRIGHT: You are out of your mind if you think there aren’t Trump supporters within the intelligence community, and that if he loses in 2020, won’t be absolutely outraged that Trump was, in their eyes, taken down because of the media and because of the Deep State actors. And you’re equally foolish to think that they won’t use their knowledge and their influence to kneecap the next Democratic president – President Sanders, President Warren, President Biden. Of course there will be people in the conservative world who work in the intelligence community who will find ways to strike back, and that is something that I have been warning about for years. Once you start this process of politicizing the intelligence community, when does it stop? We are marching down a very dangerous road where each side is so hellbent to exact revenge, and we get these political blood feuds that are wildly difficult to stop.

So, I would not be surprised at all if there were attempts by Trump supporters within the intelligence community to strike back at a progressive or otherwise Democratic president in 2020 and beyond because if we are looking at the example of Comey, Clapper, and Brennan as of today, what consequences would they face? What consequences did James Comey face when he unquestionably leaked to The New York Times to force the appointment of special counsel? He leaked classified information. What were the consequences that James Comey has had to face? He got a professorship at William and Mary University teaching ethics, he’s gone on a nationwide book tour, and he has a movie coming out based on his life and times. I mean, are you f***ing kidding me? That’s the consequence that the intelligence community is now looking at if they leak classified information. So you tell me, are we setting up the Republic for a problem? The answer is absolutely yes.

DW: You mentioned AG Bill Barr several times, but what can be done at this point to reign in the Deep State? Not only by the government and people like the attorney general, but by everyone else who has some sort of power?

WRIGHT: Let’s start first with the CIA. Gina Haspel, who’s the CIA director, she can start change. She is in control of the culture of her senior intelligence service, her senior executives, and they are the ones who engage directly with her and the White House, the National Security Council, on a regular basis. She can make sure that these folks understand there are in fact consequences for their behavior, remind them of things like the Hatch Act, what they can and can’t do. She can also, if she has suspicions or wants to make an example of someone, pull those individuals in for re-investigations and have them polygraphed for connections to the press.

She also has that same ability with her mid-level or junior staff, to pull them in on an ongoing basis to remind them of the same things, like the Hatch Act, and that what is happening in the public sphere is wrong; that while they absolutely have an opportunity, a right, to engage in our political process, they certainly should not be emulating the behavior of James Comey. She can use her leadership and her platform to do that.

She can also work with the human resources folks when they’re bringing people on board, to talk about building a new culture within the CIA that reminds people that they are subservient to the President and ultimately subservient to the American people; that it is an honor and a privilege to work at the agency, and if they are found to be abusing the profound powers that they are given, they will be held to account.

Now, that becomes a much more difficult message to sell when James Comey gets away with it. And that’s why the work of Attorney General Barr and John Durham is so important. Gina Haspel has to have concrete examples of consequences for this Deep State treachery. There are other modest things you can do, like stripping security clearances of former professionals who leave and no longer use them on a daily basis, or a project basis – but that stuff is ultimately not as important as changing the culture for why intelligence professionals, law enforcement professionals should not be leaking, A) at all, and B) classified information, and that there will be consequences if they do.

DW: Is there anything the media can do? I mean, responsible media.

WRIGHT: One of the things that I think would be very helpful is if we understood the bias of a particular reporter or media outlet, and then grade that severity of bias with each story that’s aired or published. For instance, I’d love to hover my cursor over a reporter’s name and have a bubble pop up that rates likely bias, with links to examples of said bias. Yes, I recognize the tricky nature of what I’m suggesting – who ranks the bias? But I think there’s a market-based solution to be found.

Another way we consumers ought to flag biased or untrustworthy reporting is when a reporter or outlet uses unnamed sources. Given that Comey has now admitted to being an anonymous media source, it should tell Americans that they should be very suspicious about the motivations of these mysterious people making allegations. And, frankly, it says a lot about the lack of moral character by these sources. They should stand up and say the right thing on the record if they suspect fraud, waste, and abuse, for example. Because that’s how it’s supposed to be done. If you are within the intelligence community and you have problems with your leadership, even the president themself, there are ways that you address that, and it’s not leaking to the press.

So, I think because of our beautiful Constitution, we give our media a lot of leash to report on the facts. But without understanding the bias of the outlet and the reporter, we don’t know if we’re really getting facts, but rather spin. I believe that there’s some good work that could be done on this thorny issue, and on a self-regulating basis. I’m not sure that it’s the government’s role to do that, but nevertheless, a more honest accounting of bias, I think, would be a really critical step to restoring people’s belief and faith in the media. The goal is giving the American people a way to read or watch something and say, “Oh, that reporter is biased, and I’m going to discount this report or give it much less weight than I otherwise would have.”

DW: Which would require self-reflection by individual members of the media to assess their own biases.

WRIGHT: Yeah.

DW: I know that you’re a self-professed “lifelong Democrat,” but what is your political ideology, and has the Trump presidency and the seemingly steroidal Deep State shaped your opinions in a new way that perhaps you hadn’t thought of before?

WRIGHT: Well, I think that like many Americans, I was trepidatious about President Trump, certainly in 2015 and 2016, as the noise was getting louder that he would be a viable candidate and then indeed the President of the United States. But what I have seen over the past three years is that’s he’s playing a very important, a vital role in fact, of blowing up the status quo, of blowing up a system that fundamentally wasn’t working. I’ve come to appreciate that his presidency could be used by the people to create the kind of country, the kind of Republic, that we deserve, which is one that’s accountable to people, that actually gets stuff done, that doesn’t focus on partisanship as much. At least that is, I think, the promise that I have begun to see in President Trump.

And I certainly would say that his positions are reflective of most Democrats, certainly ten years ago. On the border issues, on immigration, he’s saying the exact same things the Democrats were saying not long ago. In 2008, if you looked at the DNC’s platform, Obama was not a hell of a lot different than President Trump on this issue.

So, I think that he represents a lot of common sense on a number of issues that I’ve come to appreciate. Most especially, I think that he’s exposed this Deep State garbage that would have never, ever been exposed under a President Clinton. James Comey would likely still be the FBI director. Think about that. All these others, the McCabes and the Brennans and the Comeys, would all still be in D.C. with their hands on the levers of power.

I think that Trump’s service to this country, of exposing that Deep State, may be one of his greatest legacies.

Depending on how the China issue shakes out, I think that he could be a monumental president regarding how we take on the Chinese. Again, we’ll see.

I’ve really appreciated his approach to the War on Terror. What he has done with Soleimani in Iran, for instance. Under Bush and Obama, Soleimani and the Iranians basically had us buffaloed into a corner, and we wouldn’t take them on because we feared World War III. Well, Trump just gave that a gigantic middle finger and reminded them that they are the junior partner in this relationship, and that we would be setting the agenda. That’s precisely what needed to happen for over 16 years under two different administrations from two different political parties, and Trump finally did the right thing.

And I will tell you, from people that I know who worked the Iran issue inside the intelligence community, they were absolutely elated with Trump’s decision to kill Soleimani.

So overall, I think that the president is doing much better than many of us may have been concerned about, and he deserves a very serious consideration of our vote in 2020.

As it relates to my own personal ideology or philosophy, I would like to say I’m an old school Democrat of the Kennedy/Foley ilk, a Democrat who understands that America was and remains exceptional, and that we have a critical role to play in the world, and that it’s a role that will be respected by our partners even when they don’t like it. It’s leadership through unabashed strength. Trump has restored some of that which was lost under Bush and Obama, contrary to the media hype that would tell you otherwise. I think that’s lost on the modern American Left.

On domestic policies, I think that I believe the same things that I did ten years ago, like the importance of controlled immigration, that we have to have borders. I don’t see that as something that is part of the modern Democratic Left. Trump’s brought that out in stark relief.

But this schism within the Democratic Party isn’t because of Trump. It’s a fight that’s been had over many decades, in fits and starts. We dealt with this desire to unreasonably expand the state, for example, back in the 60s and 70s. Meanwhile, I thought we had put the socialist genie back in the bottle and marginalized those radical leftist elements around that same time. But very clearly, as the DNC declares Ocasio-Cortez the future of the Democratic Party, I think these dark forces are at play again. And we have a huge problem – we being the party, and the nation. It’s a problem that would leave people like Jack Kennedy and Tom Foley rolling over in their graves.

I don’t know where people like me go if a progressive wins the Democratic nomination or the presidency. Polling shows that moderate and conservative Democrats make up anywhere from 35% to 50% of the party. I think our vote will be up for grabs. I think many of us will gravitate to a new Republican Party.

DW: Is there something that you would want our readers to know that you and I haven’t touched on, or perhaps that you think is important that hasn’t been really talked about in the various interviews in which you’ve engaged?

WRIGHT: I don’t think that most Americans understand what the socialist movement in this country is up to. I think many people understand that socialism is bad, although a shocking number of Democrats, particularly younger voters, don’t think it’s a bad thing at all. Still, people don’t appreciate appreciate what Bernie Sanders and Ocasio-Cortez are doing with the Democratic Party, and I don’t think that most people appreciate why that’s bad, not just for the Democratic Party, but for the country. And ultimately the world.

Let me explain.

Our Republic requires multiple parties to hold each other to account. We have to have multiple voices at the table to challenge each other, to question each other. Our Republic thrives or falls based on that broad contribution and debate, and right now, the Democratic Party is becoming a movement that doesn’t warrant consideration. The reason is its embrace of socialists and their wicked ideology.

The Ocasio-Cortez and Bernie Sanders movement – Democratic Socialists of America, or DSA – started many years ago, of course. But their plans really morphed and solidified in 2012, as the DSA put forward a strategy document that basically said to its members, “Look, as socialists, we know that we can’t win in this country running as the Socialist Party. We have to rebrand ourselves. That means we register as Democrats, we run as Democrats, and then push the party so far to the Left as fast as we can that the party fissures into progressives vs. moderates and conservatives. We will then break off, taking with us the bulk of the party, the base. Then and only then can we revive the Socialist Party. Because then we won’t be scary anymore. We will have normalized the socialist agenda.” It’s an agenda, of course, that has been rightfully smeared by its decades of mass death and destruction in every country that has adopted it. So, no wonder they’re trying to rebrand it.

That’s where we’re at. And that’s what Ocasio-Cortez and Bernie are doing. So, when you hear them talk about “free stuff” – education, housing, health care, jobs – know that they’re rebranding themselves with unserious policy proposals that they can’t possibly afford not because they’re being serious, but only trying to make the Socialist Party less scary.

It’s all in the 2012 DSA strategy document, all available on the DSA website for anyone to read. I wish more Americans took the time to review it, understand it, and grasp the treachery of Ocasio-Cortez and Bernie Sanders. They’re using the Democratic Party as though it’s a host to be invaded and occupied by a socialist virus. The only aim is to strip the Democratic Party down to nothing, destroy it, and then leave with the voters who would serve their revived Socialist Party.

If that were to happen, think of the consequences not just for the Democratic Party or even America. What would happen to the world? What would happen to humanity if, somehow, the United States were to succumb to socialism?

Who would step into that vacuum of global leadership that for so long has defended liberty and freedom? The clear answer is China, a country that persecutes its people, that embraces murderous concentration camps for the Uighur people. That is the government that would be controlling humanity’s future.

That is what’s at stake. That’s what happens to liberty, to freedom, if the United States, imperfect as we are, is no longer on the scene because we embrace socialism.

And for those who argue that Russia might step up, count me skeptical. With an economy the size of Italy and a leadership that enjoys oppression as much as the Chinese, these are not the people we want to lead humanity.

So, if the Democratic Party falls to the socialist wing with all their horrific values, and the United States is handicapped and is no longer able to play the role that it does in the world, imperfect as we may be, we will jeopardize all the progress that we have fought so hard for, certainly since World War II, to create a more just and a more peaceful world.

That’s really what is at stake for me as I watch the Democratic Party fall into the socialist trap, as I watch Chuck and Nancy and the DNC embrace Ocasio-Cortez and Bernie Sanders as the future of the Democratic Party. I watch in horror as progressives in the media fawn over Ocasio-Cortez. People like Rachel Maddow and Joy Behar package her as some fun, dance-on-the-roof kind of girl that’s just a lovely representation of womanhood or being black or brown.

If that bologna salesmanship convinces enough Americans that socialism isn’t so bad after all, and we start going down that path, then we will lose everything that we have fought for over the past 100 years. So we have to get this right. We have to self-correct – as a Democratic Party, as a country – because so much is at stake.

EXCLUSIVE: FBI Must “Sequester All” Information Related to Fraudulent Carter Page FISA Warrant Indicating Related Indictments May Be Voided


Hannity is my favorite Fox News show. When Hannity speaks of FBI corruption he goes out of his way to say something like 97% (I am not sure of the exact quote. It could be a little more or a little less, but Hannity definitely speaks the 90 percentile range) of the FBI is not corrupt blaming 7th Floor FBI management.

 

Examples of FBI 7th Floor Nefariousness:

 

 

 

 

I am beginning to believe the culture of corruption at the FBI is far worse than a mere 7th Floor containment. This Gateway Pundit report on FBI corrupt practices is one example of a larger corruption culture.

EXCLUSIVE: FBI Must “Sequester All” Information Related to Fraudulent Carter Page FISA Warrant Indicating Related Indictments May Be Voided

 

By Joe Hoft

January 24, 2020

The Gateway Pundit

Obama Deep State

 

It’s about time.  The FISA Court’s communication yesterday indicates that the Deep State’s Carter Page FISA warrants were illegal and the related indictments may be voided.

 

An individual with the Twitter name of Undercover Huber tweeted out some interesting tweets about the FISA Court’s document regarding handling and disposition of information this week.  After the recent DOJ IG report that showed that the four FISA warrants taken out on Carter Page and used to legitimize spying on candidate and then President Trump had numerous material issues, the FISA Court is finally taking action.

 

Undercover Huber started his account when Jeff Sessions asked US Attorney John Huber to look into the Clinton Foundation’s crimes in 2017.  Huber eventually completed his efforts without investigating anything.  It was a total head fake by Sessions and Huber to calm demands from conservatives.  The only fortunate result from all this is the twitter account of Undercover Huber which often has some outstanding tweets.  Yesterday was another example of this from Undercover Huber.

 

The FISA Court acknowledges that the last two of the four Carter Page FISA warrant applications were fraudulent.  This means that the other two most likely are as well:

 

In his next two tweets Undercover Huber notes that the Court is asking the FBI to sequester the data and information related to the Carter Page FISA warrants.  Undercover Huber suggests that actions in any cases that relied on any of the ‘fruit of the poisonous tree’ could be overturned, including indictments from the corrupt Mueller gang:

 

 

We really don’t know if the Durham investigation is another head fake like the Huber non-action.  What we do know is that members of the Obama administration illegally spied on the Trump team before and after the 2016 election.

The Greatest Danger

The Democratic Party’s Illegitimate Use of Impeachment

 

By Justin O. Smith
Last update sent 12/14/2019 12:01 AM

 

The House Judiciary Committee, led by the majority Democratic Party, voted 23 to 17 along party lines to impeach President Donald J. Trump on Friday December 13th 2019, and the Democratic Party is moving full steam ahead with its lies and the weaponized impeachment process, that is an extremely flagrant, unacceptable and odious act, ignoring the truth. This exercise in evil, based on a deep hatred for the President and for America, is so devoid of sense and prudence that it would embarrass all the kangaroos ever assembled in the courts of legend, since it issues two articles of impeachment, two articles of fiction, that charge “abuse of power” and “contempt of Congress”. These charges are dubious at best, as they project the Democratic Party’s own offenses, and even have many members of the greater Democrat caucus in the House nervous over staking their political futures on a vote for this idiocy.

 

On December 10th, Representative Lee Zeldin (R-NY) exclaimed, “With this disgusting impeachment charade, House Democrats have proven themselves guilty of Abuse of Power and Obstruction of Congress.”

 

According to the New York Times, as of December 13th, one hundred and fifty-five of 235 House Democrats have expressed their support for the impeachment of President Trump. [Blog Editor: My brief efforts could not locate Justin’s NYT data, but NYT data on Impeachment Inquiry dated 10/10/19 has 227 Dems supporting Impeachment. BUT that was long before the GOP confronted Schiff, Nadler & Pelosi with facts vs hearsay.] Twelve representatives are still undecided or unclear on their decision, and sixty-six have not responded yet. One, Rep. Jeff Van Drew (D-NJ), appears to be a solid “No”.

 

However, a point made by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell in November still holds true going into 2020, when he told reporters, “It is inconceivable to me that (the Senate vote) would be 67 votes to remove the president from office.”

 

During the airing of Meet the Press on December 8th, that highlights the hypocrisy and double-standards utilized by Democrats, host Chuck Todd noted that 21 years ago, as the impeachment of President Bill Clinton unfolded, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler [is quoted to have] stated: “Impeaching a president, when you have not got a broad consensus of the American people, a broad agreement of almost everybody that this fellow has to go, because he’s a clear and present danger to our liberty and to our Constitution, without that, you cannot and should not impeach a president. Because to do so is to call into question the legitimacy of all our political institutions.” Obviously, Nadler has departed a great distance from his former beliefs, as he invents new standards for impeachment.

 

On December 9th, former Independent Counsel Ken Starr, of Watergate fame, told Tucker Carlson at Fox News: “Impeachment should be the last resort and now it’s just a political tool.”

 

Since the 2016 elections, misusing the impeachment process, these Democratic Party traitors to America, such as Maxine Waters, Steve Cohen, Jim Cooper and Al Green, have attempted to impeach President Trump over everything imaginable, from his tax returns and the Emoluments Clause to Russian collusion, Ukrainian quid pro quo and on to obstruction of justice, obstruction of Congress and bribery. They have wasted weeks in formal impeachment proceedings that more closely resembled a Lefortovo Soviet style sham, where they unilaterally declared that President Trump’s intent was to harm Joe Biden’s bid for the Democratic Party presidential nomination; however, the facts do clearly exhibit, President Trump was actually more focused on seeing the Democrats’ real corruption and criminal acts, pertaining to kickback payments from Ukraine to Hunter Biden exposed and investigated.

Dem Desperation 2020 toon

On December 5th, during an interview at the Women’s Leadership Summit, Speaker Nancy Pelosi was asked, “Was there an ‘aha’ moment for you personally, a piece of evidence or testimony that swayed you now to take this step (forward with the rapid impeachment of President Trump)?” Pelosi answered this and two follow-up questions, with the following:  “… all I hear from the press is that I move so swiftly that it’s like a blur going by. This has been a couple of years — two and a half — since the initial investigation of the Russian involvement in America’s election, which started much of this and led to other things. … So all along, I have said for two years, this is an impeachment … We don’t take any glee in this at all. It is heartbreaking.”

 

So how could all of the current impeachment talk really be about Ukraine and an innocent phone call, when Ukraine wasn’t on the agenda two years ago, especially when all parties concerned, including Chairman Jerrold Nadler have admitted there wasn’t any quid pro quo? Even if there had been a quid pro quo, it wouldn’t have constituted an abuse of power,  since America has never just handed foreign nations money without any expectations. And as far as  President Trump’s instructions to White House staff not to honor Congressional subpoenas, rather than an “obstruction of Congress”, this is simply a classic struggle and an exertion of rights between co-equal branches of government; most certainly President Trump cannot allow a rogue House to trample, thwart and usurp the White House.

 

“We don’t take any glee in this at all” …? Like hell they don’t.

 

A few days after Pelosi’s revelation, House Judiciary Committee ranking member Doug Collins suggested America should look at the Articles of Impeachment. He observed that the term “abuse of power” is so ambiguous and so vague” that it’s hard to even define, and they use its ambiguity to make it mean whatever they want it to mean. And Alan Dershowitz, a civil libertarian professor of law at Harvard University and a Democrat opponent of President Trump, essentially agrees with that assessment in his December 10th article, as he noted that abuse of power and obstruction of Congress are not mentioned in the Constitution and neither one is a high crime and misdemeanor. Dershowitz focused on Alexander Hamilton’s position that “vague criteria would allow a majority of the House to impeach a president from the opposing party just because they had more votes than the president’s party”, which Hamilton called ‘the greatest danger”.

 

The Democrats are abusing their power and weaponizing impeachment, dividing the nation, because if the early hearings had utilized due process addressing the issue and the President’s alleged wrongdoing, the entire process would have already ended, since President Trump has absolutely done nothing wrong. The Democrats simply fear the coming 2020 elections and they wish to be able to repeat over and over the words “impeach, impeach … President Trump was impeached” in hopes of smearing him enough to make a difference.

 

From November to the present, President Trump has exuded a “bring it on” attitude, stating “Frankly, I want a trial.”

 

Only one attempt to impeach the president was seen in the first 184 years of our nation’s existence, and in the last 45 years our nation has witnessed three, with President Trump well on his way to be the third U.S. President in American history to be impeached, before the Christmas holidays, although it is highly unlikely that the Senate will also vote to remove President Trump, as the sham proceedings head into next year. The larger question will be whether or not the issue even gets more than 50 votes to remove President Trump, since some Democrats, such as Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia, and all the Republicans, with the possible exceptions of Senators Lisa Murkowski and Mitt Romney, will vote against removing President Trump. [Blog Editor: As in RINO alert!]

 

A trial in the senate would be quite a circus and it would reveal the Democrats for the real fools they are each and every day. It would reveal that Eric Ciaramella is a rogue CIA agent, not a “whistleblower”, aiding and abetting the implementation of a seditious conspiracy, who should be forced to testify along with his co-conspirator Michael Atkinson — Intel Community Inspector General — and former assistant attorney general John Carlin, one of the perpetrators of the “Crossfire Hurricane” prelude to RussiaGate. And it would also be most interesting to hear from Gina Haspel, the current CIA Director, in order to discover just what she might know of Ciaramella’s role if this entire sordid, so far as to who were his associates in this treasonous affair.

 

And every cogent thinking, logical freedom loving American would certainly want to hear testimony from Representative Adam “Shifty” Schiff — UNDER OATH — who engineered Ciaramella’s entrance into this Ukrainian imbroglio and sequel to the Russiagate hoax. Schiff will certainly stay true to his immoral character and lie about his involvement and his actions, and any such perjury regarding such a serious matter before all America should result in his expulsion from Congress in disgrace. Bring in all the bad actors with pertinent knowledge on the allegations and the plot against the President, from crack-cocaine smoking Hunter Biden to Lt Colonel Vindman, U.S. Army, U.S. National Security Council Director for European Affairs and a de facto Ukrainian agent, and on to Daniel Goldman, the attorney and director for the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, and compel them all to testify under penalty of perjury.

 

Each time I hear Nadler and Pelosi, or any other Democrat,  attempt to equate their treasonous impeachment tactic to “service to our duty to the Constitution and our country”, a white-flash passes through my eyes, bile fills my mouth and hot anger courses through my blood. In the end, the Democratic Party has provided all freedom and liberty loving Americans with more than ample reason to never vote for any Democrat ever again, as we join hands to right our country and renew and restore our Constitutional Republic.

 

This marks the first time in U.S. history that an impeachment has proceeded to a vote of the full House, without any clear criminal act and on the slimmest of “evidence” of any wrongdoing. Not only is this the most un-American act I have witnessed in my lifetime, it is a gross violation of the rule of law and the Constitution by Democratic Party petty tyrants, who have illegitimately changed the rules, manipulated our Supreme Law, and used any means at hand, both legal and illegal, in their numerous attempts to fully attain their endgame of ousting President Trump. And in the process, these traitors have subverted the will of the people and the U.S. Constitution, stopping at nothing in the pursuit of power, and created a Constitutional crisis that strikes at the heart of America’s society and Her Republic, deepening and widening our political divides and pushing America closer to a point of no return.
