Wrong Wray — It’s NOT the Whole FBI


Current FBI Director Christopher Wray views FBI exoneration of targeting President Trump before and after election in 2016 in the IG Michael Horowitz Report. President Trump should view another firing of another Deep State FBI Director AND replace Wray with someone willing to drain the swamp stench of Dem influence in that Agency.

Wrong Wray — It’s NOT the Whole FBI

The vast majority of the 12,484 special agents and 2,950 intelligence analysts in the FBI steadfastly abide by their oaths.

On Tuesday, FBI Director Christopher Wray issued his response to the Justice Department’s FISA report, concluding: “Finally, we will review the performance and conduct of certain FBI employees who were referenced in the Report’s recommendations — including managers, supervisors, and senior officials at the time. The FBI will take appropriate disciplinary action where warranted. Notably, many of the employees described in the report are no longer employed at the FBI.”

 

But in a follow-up interview, when asked if he had any evidence that the FBI unfairly targeted Trump’s campaign, Wray replied, “I don’t.” If his response was specifically related to the FISA report evidence that was limited in its scope, then Wray’s comments are in line. But if he was suggesting that there is no evidence of bias among “managers, supervisors, and senior officials at the time,” that assertion is ludicrous and earned this response from Donald Trump: “I don’t know what report [Wray] was reading, but it sure wasn’t the one given to me.”

 

Moreover, Director Wray was asked a leading question as to whether he was offended by suggestions that the FBI is part of the “deep state.”

 

He took the bait on a broad question: “I think that’s the kind of label that is a disservice to the 37,000 men and women who work at the FBI who I think tackle their jobs with professionalism, with rigor, with objectivity, with courage … so that’s not a term I would ever use to describe our workforce and I think it’s an affront to them.”

 

Wrong, Wray — the question asked was absurd and disingenuous. He knows better and should have chosen his words much more carefully. The “deep state” assertions have always been limited to a handful of FBI personnel Wray identified in his response — those high-ranking “managers, supervisors, and senior officials” with strong bias in favor of Hillary Clinton. This has never been about the FBI at large.

 

Almost two years ago, in “The FISA Memo and the Demos’ Deep-State Operatives,” I noted:

 

Democrats and their Leftmedia outlets are promoting the diversionary false narrative that serious questions about the political motives of those who seeded the FISA warrants are a “broad assault on the Department of Justice and FBI” by President Trump and Republicans. According to Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), “This wasn’t about oversight. This is about … attacking the DoJ and FBI, a transparent attempt to discredit these institutions.”

 

As I noted then, in fact, it is Democrats like Schiff who are broad-brushing the FISA memo inquiry to include “institutions” rather than “individuals.” The memo names a handful of corrupt Democrat deep-state operatives in the DoJ and FBI who colluded to help Hillary Clinton defeat Donald Trump and who, after his stunning upset, sought to undermine the legitimacy of Trump’s presidency.

 

As I also noted then: “The vast majority of the 12,484 special agents and 2,950 intelligence analysts in the FBI steadfastly abide by their oaths ‘to support and defend’ our Constitution. They also strive to live up to the FBI motto: Fidelity, Bravery, Integrity. Indeed, most FBI agents, whose reputations are being sullied by the corrupt actions of a few high-ranking officials, are both personally and professionally offended by that corruption.”

 

Again yesterday in “The DoJ FISA Report — Trump Was Right,” I noted that “Hillary Clinton’s backers were high-ranking FBI bureaucrats” — as Wray identified in his report.

 

For the record, it was and remains Democrats who, by advancing this charade to take Trump down, have cast a cloud over the entire FBI — a cloud that will take years to dissipate. When Wray answers loaded media questions without redress, he also throws his whole agency under the bus.

JUDICIAL WATCH: FEDERAL JUDGE ORDERS FBI TO SEARCH FOR STEELE DOCUMENTS


Wouldn’t it be good to know when the FBI knew the Steele Dossier was bogus and yet how often the bogus document was presented to a FISA Court for warrants to spy on President Trump during and after the 2016 election campaign? Judicial Watch is taking steps to configure the time frame especially since it is apparent FBI Director Christopher Wray has no intention to clean his house of corruption.

JUDICIAL WATCH: FEDERAL JUDGE ORDERS FBI TO SEARCH FOR STEELE DOCUMENTS

 

Christopher Steele

 

JW Press Release

August 19, 2019 (sent: 8/19/19 2:45 PM)

Judicial Watch

 

(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch announced today that U.S. District Court Judge Christopher Cooper ordered the FBI to conduct a search within 60 days for records of communications with former British spy and dossier author Christopher Steele post-dating Steele’s service as an FBI confidential source. In ordering the supplemental search for records, Judge Cooper held:

[T]he potential for illuminating the FBI’s activities is not too difficult to discern. Communications post-dating Steele’s time as an informant might reveal a great deal about why the FBI developed him as a CHS [confidential human source], his performance as a CHS, and why the FBI opted to terminate its relationship with him. Those records might either bolster or weaken Steele’s credibility as a source. That information, in turn, could provide a basis on which to evaluate the FBI’s performance of its law-enforcement duties, including its judgment in selecting and relying on confidential sources, especially in connection with such a politically sensitive subject. Of course, the records Judicial Watch speculates about might not even exist—and even if they do, they may not reveal anything significant about the FBI’s operations. But that they might do so makes them a matter of potential public interest.

The court ruling came in the Judicial Watch Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) for records of communications and payments between the FBI, Christopher Steele and his private firm, Orbis Business Intelligence (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of Justice) (No. 1:17-cv-00916)). The lawsuit seeks:

 

  • All records of communications between any official, employee, or representative of the FBI and Mr. Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence officer and the owner of the private firm Orbis Business Intelligence.

 

  • All records related to the proposed, planned, or actual payment of any funds to Mr. Steele and/or Orbis Business Intelligence.

 

  • All records produced in preparation for, during, or pursuant to any meetings or telephonic conversations between any official, employee, or representative of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Mr. Christopher Steele and/or any employee or representative of Orbis Business Intelligence.

 

The court initially ruled in favor of a DOJ “Glomar” response to Judicial Watch’s March 8, 2017, FOIA request stating that it could “neither confirm nor deny the existence of records responsive to [Judicial Watch’s] request.” On March 26, 2018, subsequent to the declassification of records revealing Steele’s role as an FBI informant and his firing by the FBI in November 2016, the court reopened the case at Judicial Watch’s request. The FBI, however, continued refusing to search for records post-dating Steele’s dismissal, contending that any records discovered would be exempt from disclosure on privacy grounds.

In Friday’s ruling, Judge Cooper held that, on balance, any privacy interests Steele may have in keeping the documents secret are outweighed by the public’s interest in disclosure:

 

Steele’s privacy interests are far different from those courts usually consider under Exemption 7(C), where disclosure would make public for the first time an individual’s affiliation with law enforcement, whether as agent, cooperator, or target… The balance therefore tilts in favor of disclosure. Accordingly, the Court will order the FBI to conduct a search for records post-dating Steele’s service as a confidential source.

 

“The court was right to turn aside the FBI’s fake concerns for Clinton spy Christopher Steele’s privacy and order the agency to search for more records on its use of Steele and his Dossier to target President Trump,” stated Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “That the FBI is still protecting Christopher Steele and the Clinton spy ring at Fusion GPS should tell you there is much more corruption to be exposed in the coup efforts against President Trump.”

Documents previously produced in this lawsuit show that the FBI paid Steele at least 11 times during the 2016 presidential campaign and then fired him for leaking.

Judicial Watch also uncovered smoking gun documents showing that former Associate Deputy Attorney General Bruce Ohr remained in regular contact with Steele after Steele was terminated by the FBI in November 2016 for revealing to the media his position as an FBI confidential informant.

Through another FOIA lawsuit, Judicial Watch obtained emails of Bruce Ohr discussing information obtained through his wife Nellie, which he passed on to the FBI. The information contained anti-Trump dossier materials, including a spreadsheet that tries to link President Trump to dozens of Russians. These Justice Department documents also contain Russia-related emails sent from Nellie Ohr to high-ranking DOJ official Lisa Holtyn during the period Ohr worked with anti-Trump firm Fusion GPS, which contracted with Steele to create the Trump Dossier. Holtyn at the time was a top aide to Bruce Ohr.

Judicial later acquired FBI 302 interview forms of Bruce Ohr’s reporting information he received from Steele to his FBI handlers.

Judicial Watch additionally uncovered documents from the U.S. Department of State revealing that State Department “Special Coordinator for Libya” Jonathan Winer played a key role in facilitating Steele’s access to other top government officials and prominent international business executives.

Intro to ‘… A “Soft Coup” Against President Trump’


Intro by John R. Houk

Intro © July 28, 2019

 

One of my favorite WordPress blogs is Ares and Athena (let’s abbreviate that as A & A). A & A often does the same thing I do in cross posting from others subject matter that I find interesting.

 

A & A picked up a fascinating perspective from RedState blogger streiff. To be honest I’m not exactly a frequent flyer at RedState, so I’m unfamiliar about streiff writing. So I attempted to find something about the person.

 

I quickly realized that streiff is a pseudonym. I have no idea if streiff is male or female. I discovered that streiff is a pro-Trump blogger of some notoriety at RedState and seems to have been a part of the controversy of a RedState purge of pro-Trump bloggers but has managed to find his/her way back to RedState. If you are unaware of the RedState firing of bloggers, I’ll let you research the controversy because I really don’t care. As I said, I’m not a RedState frequent flyer.

 

HOWEVER, this streiff post picked up by A & A does disseminate a perspective on the Deep State coup attempt against President Trump that more people should be aware of to note the tactics probably will continue by other means.

 

Streiff builds his narrative by sharing some facts that I’ll let you read in the cross post, but here is an excerpt of the streiff wants you to grasp:

 

One could speculate that it was more than a soft coup against Trump. If all the reports we’ve received are correct, this resembles more of a decapitation strike aimed at taking out all resistance to the Democrat party. If the Republican President, the NRA, and other conservative groups can be alleged to have all been under the influence of a foreign power, albeit a Third World kleptocracy with an GDP smaller than New York State, then the entire opposition to the Democrats is discredited for years to come. The reason I don’t find this far fetched is that four years ago I would never have believed that the FBI and CIA would have interjected themselves into a presidential election on the side of one of the candidates and I never would have believed the UN Ambassador would be unmasking the personal communications of American citizens at the rate of one per work day.

 

If that is the case, then a lot of very powerful people need to be sharing a cell with … BE TANTALIZED AND READ THE CROSS POST.

 

Ares and Athena introduced the streiff post with this (posted today 7/28/19):

 

Trump’s  election threw a huge roadblock on the highway to dystopia. Thus, a desperate elitist/leftist attempt ensued to paint all opposition, especially Trump, as Russian lackeys via false accusations and naked propaganda.

 

If they were successful, his election would be invalidated. Thus, the festivities of the politically and morally corrupt DC machine and their selling out of America for their own gain  could continue.

 

The following article reveals some interesting information regarding one aspect of the plan and its implication.

 

And now the cross post below.

Secret FBI Informant In The Maria Butina Case Says He Was Part Of A “Soft Coup” Against President Trump

 

By streiff

July 27, 2019

RedState

 

Maria Butina

 

One of the saddest episodes to emerge from the anti-Russia hysteria the Democrats and NeverTrump weenies managed to generate after the 2016 election is the case of Maria Butina. (You can chant “Russia is not our friend” under your breath to create the correct ambiance.) Butina, a member of a nascent Russian gun rights movement, was sentenced to 18 months in prison for failing to register under the Foreign Agents Registration Act. She was never accused of being an intelligence agent. She is in prison for doing what Tony Podesta did for years and got White House invitations. Butina’s misfortune was to be Russian and to be interested in working with the NRA. Because the NRA supports Republicans, this became a convenient tool to claim the NRA was a Russian influenced organization…a charge that was actually made on this very site…and therefore illegitimate.

 

Yesterday, a pretty amazing thing happened. According to an exclusive report by Sara Carter (who seems to be one of the very few political journalists, liberal or conservative, not using Jake Tapper’s Twitter timeline for story ideas) the FBI aimed an informant at Butina with orders to begin a sexual relationship with her and then lied to Butina’s defense team about the informant and what the informant said about her intent because his reports undermined the government’s case.

This is the set up:

 

[Overstock.com CEO Patrick] Byrne was a keynote speaker on July, 8, 2015 at Freedom Fest, a yearly Libertarian gathering that hosts top speakers in Las Vegas. Shortly after his address, Butina approached him. She was flattering and repeatedly told him she was a fan of his, saying she was a graduate student that had studied the famous libertarian Militon [sic] Friedman.

 

He spoke to her shortly and “brushed her off.”

 

The young redheaded Russian graduate student then approached him again over the course of the conference and explained that she worked for the Vice Chairman of the Central Bank of Russia and sent by them to make contact with Byrne.

 

She also said “did you know you’re a famous man in Russia, we watch videos about you and your relationship with Milton Freeman.”

 

She said she was appointed to lead Russia’s gun right’s group by Lieutenant-General Mikhail Kalashnikov, who was a Russian general, most notably known for his AK-47 machine gun design. The designation by Kalashnikov is considered a huge honor and Byrne then had an “extensive conversation about Russian history and I understood her designation about Kalishnikov was significant.”

 

She wanted to invite Byrne to Russia to speak at the Central Bank before dignitaries. The speaking engagement would be at a major resort for three days. Butina told Byrne the event would offer him the opportunity to meet senior Russian officials and oligarchs. He didn’t accept the offer because of his security clearance. He then reported Butina and her offer to the FBI.

 

Byrne was a little suspicious of everything because Butina confided that she was afraid she was being monitored and thought it would be best if they disguised their meetings as a romantic relationship. He also reported it because Byrne was a part-time FBI informant.

 

When he contacted the FBI and then subsequently for the next few months “instead what I got was vague instructions that it would be ok to get to know her better.”

 

He said there was very little response from the FBI after his initial contact, until Butina asked him to come meet her in New York City. He told the FBI he didn’t want any vague instructions on whether to meet Butina or not because “I didn’t want my security clearance to get pulled.”

 

At that point the FBI gave him an explicit “green light” to meet with her. He rented a hotel room with two bedrooms because he was under the impression that the romantic texts were simply her way to cover for communicating with him. However, she arrived at the hotel beforehand, occupied the room before Byrne’s arrival, and when he arrived, she made clear that her flirtatious texts were not simply a disguise.

 

Byrne said that the FBI agents made clear they were skeptical that Butina might be of interest, dismissing her as simply a normal 26 year old Russian graduate student. Over time, Byrne and Butina developed an intimate relationship but at the same time he alleges he was continuously reporting on Butina to the FBI in an effort to convince them that it might be worthwhile to introduce her to some of his contacts at the Council on Foreign Relations. He also noted he reported to the FBI his interactions more frequently with Butina starting in December, 2015, both out of a desire not to lose the possibility of something good coming from this encounter, but also, because Butina was starting to speak more frequently of meeting with big shots in Republican circles.

 

Ultimately, Byrne became convinced that Butina was basically a very enthusiastic person doing exactly what she claimed to be doing: trying to build linkages between this Russian gun rights group and the NRA and conservative groups in the US and that she was not acting on behalf of the Russian government.

 

After her arrest, her lawyer made a demand for so-called “Brady” material and the FBI told them there was none. The FBI lying to sandbag a defense attorney…can you see my shocked face?

But this is the interesting part:

 

Oddly, Byrne’s name was not disclosed by prosecutors in the case or by the FBI. And despite the government’s earlier efforts to paint Butina as a Russian spy attempting to infiltrate Republican circles she was never investigated by Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe, which charged 25 Russian agents with interfering in the U.S. election. Further, the FBI, unlike convicted Russian bombshell spy Anna Chapman, did nothing to stop Butina from meeting with high level Republican and conservative figures. The bureau also didn’t warn those conservative figures she had made contact with,  even though they had her under surveillance and allegedly Byrne had been reporting on her during that time. As noted in a column by The Hill’s John Solomon Chapman’s actions were handled differently than Butina. When one of Chapman’s associates, who went by the name of Cynthia Murphy, made contact with Alan Patricof, a major Democratic donor close to Hillary Clintonthe FBI acted swiftly to arrest the entire cell.

 

[Butina attorney Robert] Driscoll said there was suspicion that the FBI did not disclose all the information it had on Butina and he stated that he believed “Patrick is not the only one” who was giving information to the FBI.

 

Why does this matter?

 

We’re seeing a pattern. When the FBI suspected that Carter Page was possibly compromised by the Russians, instead of following normal procedure and giving then-candidate Trump a defensive briefing and the opportunity to remove Page from the campaign, what did the FBI do? Nothing. We know they did that service for John McCain in 2008 and why they elected not to in 2015-16 is a question that needs to be answered. If Page had been fired from the Trump campaign in 2015 much of what happened since then would not have taken place.

 

Earlier this week the attorney for Joseph Mifsud intimated that his client, the guy who allegedly kicked off “Crossfire Hurricane” by telling George Papadopoulos that the Russians had “dirt” on Clinton, worked for western intelligence agencies. Bolstering this is the fact that Robert Mueller never claims that Mifsud was working for the Russian government and Mueller never charged Mifsud with lying to the FBI in interviews despite the fact that he did (see Jim Jordan Fillets Mueller On Joseph Mifsud Not Being Charged, Exposes Serious Credibility Issues With The Probe).

 

Recall that the New York Times confirmed that a woman dangled in front of Papadopoulos as a possible romantic liaison was, in fact, working for some US agency. We hope it was the FBI because if it was the CIA a boatload of laws were broken (see FBI Does Preemptive Damage Control By Confirming The Trump Campaign Was The Target Of A Spying Operation).

 

And so the push by John Durham to interview Joseph Mifsud and rumors that extensive exculpatory information existed on Page and Papadopoulos that would have put their activities in a different light brings new significance.

 

Back to Byrne. Why did he come forward?

 

Byrne’s decision to come forward didn’t come lightly. However, he said it was necessary after watching what had transpired between the FBI, the intelligence community and the probe into President Trump’s campaign over the past several years.

 

“It was something I knew I had to do,” he told this reporter. “Those running the operation were not honest and in the end I realized I was being used in some sort of soft coup.”

 

One could speculate that it was more than a soft coup against Trump. If all the reports we’ve received are correct, this resembles more of a decapitation strike aimed at taking out all resistance to the Democrat party. If the Republican President, the NRA, and other conservative groups can be alleged to have all been under the influence of a foreign power, albeit a Third World kleptocracy with an GDP smaller than New York State, then the entire opposition to the Democrats is discredited for years to come. The reason I don’t find this far fetched is that four years ago I would never have believed that the FBI and CIA would have interjected themselves into a presidential election on the side of one of the candidates and I never would have believed the UN Ambassador would be unmasking the personal communications of American citizens at the rate of one per work day.

 

If that is the case, then a lot of very powerful people need to be sharing a cell with Tiny the White Supremacist Biker and their organizations need to be burned to the ground. If it isn’t a global conspiracy and just a series of events carried out by politically motivated law enforcement and intelligence agents, they need to do hard time and everyone associated with them reduced to penury.

Hillary Clinton’s Lawyer Changes Story on When She Knew About Emails


On June 29 I cross posted a Vincent Vendetta video (a little over 7 minutes) which reported on a Judicial Watch deposition of the Crooked Hillary lawyer (Heather Samuelson)  that aided in wiping subpoenaed emails from the illegal server.

 

Three Search Engine Views of Person Identified as Heather Samuelson

 

Yesterday my Facebook friend Rose Reed Brown Messaged me a link from The Epoch Times went into greater detail about Samuelson than the video. The original Epoch Times article was posted June 30 but by the time Rose emailed the link, it had a July 3 update. That update is the detail I am cross posting below.

Hillary Clinton’s Lawyer Changes Story on When She Knew About Emails

 

By MARK TAPSCOTT

June 30, 2019 Updated: July 3, 2019

The Epoch Times

 

WASHINGTON—Heather Samuelson, Hillary Clinton’s personal attorney, gave the FBI and Judicial Watch conflicting explanations of when she learned that the former secretary of state used a private email system to conduct official U.S. diplomatic business.

 

“I believe I first became aware when either she e-mailed me on personal matters, such as wishing me happy birthday, or when I infrequently would receive e-mails forwarded to me from others at the department that had that e-mail address listed elsewhere in the document,” Samuelson told Judicial Watch lawyers during a June 13, 2019, deposition.

 

Samuelson worked in the Department of State’s liaison office to President Barack Obama’s White House at the time, according to Judicial Watch.

 

Samuelson told the FBI in 2016 that she didn’t learn of the Clinton email system until becoming Clinton’s personal attorney in 2014, after serving for a year in the White House counsel’s office.

 

The 2016 conversation with the FBI was part of the bureau’s highly controversial investigation of the Clinton private email system, which culminated with then-FBI Director James Comey’s July 5, 2016, announcement that he wouldn’t recommend prosecution of the former chief diplomat.

 

Clinton used the private email system, originally on a server located in the New York mansion she shares with former President Bill Clinton, throughout her tenure as the top U.S. diplomat, from 2009 to 2013.

 

The non-profit government watchdog released the transcript of the deposition on June 28. The Samuelson deposition is the latest in a series of depositions by Judicial Watch of senior Clinton aides that were ordered Dec. 6, 2018, by U.S. District Judge Royce Lamberth.

 

Lamberth described Clinton’s private email system as “one of the gravest modern offenses to government transparency,” and ordered Samuelson and nearly a dozen other former Clinton aides to answer Judicial Watch’s questions either in depositions or in written responses.

 

“After Clinton left office, Samuelson worked for a year in the office of the White House Counsel before becoming Clinton’s personal attorney” in 2014, Judicial Watch said in a statement accompanying release of the deposition.

 

“She was primarily responsible for conducting the review of Clinton emails and sorting out ‘personal’ emails from government emails, which were returned to the State Department under the direction of [former Clinton Chief of Staff] Cheryl Mills and [another] Clinton lawyer, David Kendall,” the Judicial Watch statement said.

 

“After the emails were returned to State, Clinton deleted the rest of the ‘personal’ emails from her server, wiping it clean. Samuelson conducted the review of emails on her laptop, using Clinton server files downloaded from Platte River Networks, which housed the Clinton email server,” the statement continued.

 

Samuelson’s contradiction of her prior statement to the FBI is significant because she also told Judicial Watch that she had been granted by the Department of Justice (DOJ) what she described as “limited production immunity” in June 2016.

 

It isn’t known whether the DOJ’s grant of immunity insulated Samuelson against whatever legal obligation she may have had while working in the White House or the State Department to disclose to law enforcement officials her knowledge that Clinton wasn’t using a secured U.S. government communications system to conduct official diplomatic business.

 

U.S. officials knew that Chinese intelligence had hacked into Clinton’s private system, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) told The Epoch Times on June 29.

 

Gohmert said the Chinese “actually hacked Hillary Clinton’s personal server—as our intel community established without any question—even though the FBI refused to ever examine the evidence.”

 

A forensic analysis of Clinton’s emails conducted by the intelligence community inspector general (ICIG) had determined that a copy of virtually every email from Clinton’s server was sent to an unauthorized source, Gohmert said.

 

Dozens of highly classified documents were sent to and from Clinton on her private email system when she was secretary of state.

 

Samuelson is the second former Clinton associate to be found in the Judicial Watch depositions to have told the FBI one thing in 2016, only to have it contradicted in 2019.

 

Former Clinton State Department aide Justin Cooper told Judicial Watch in a deposition released earlier this year that he worked with the secretary’s then-deputy chief of staff Huma Abedin in setting up the private email system.

 

Cooper’s claim contradicted Abedin’s previous claim in a 2016 deposition by Judicial Watch that she only learned of the private email system in 2015 by “reading in some news articles about a year, a year-and-a-half ago, when it was—it was being publicly discussed.”

 

Abedin was deputy chief of staff throughout Clinton’s tenure at the State Department and then worked for her throughout her primary and general election campaign for president in 2016.

 

“The news that the Obama DOJ gave immunity to Heather Samuelson, Hillary Clinton’s lawyer responsible for the infamous deletion of 33,000 emails, further confirms the sham FBI/DOJ investigation of the Clinton email scandal,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in the statement accompanying the deposition’s release.

 

“And it is curious that Ms. Samuelson changed her story about what she knew and when about the Clinton email system. Attorney General William Barr can’t reopen the Clinton email investigation fast enough,” Fitton said.

Ranks within CIA reportedly ‘anxious’ as DOJ plans to dig deeper on suspicious origins of Russia probe


As the Mainstream Media keep their heads between the cheeks of their own gluteus maximus with fake outrage after fake outrage of President Trump falsely accused of breaking the law, it appears the true colluders AGAINST the U.S. government might be getting nervous. (The latest false outrage is President Trump would look at unsolicited voluntarily offered oppo research and on an opposing candidate, BUT pooh-pooh solicited and paid for FICTITIOUS information manufactured from foreign sources – RUSSIA – and composed by a former MI6 Agent Christopher Steele.)

BizPac Review has the story that Federal Prosecutor John Durham and AG William Barr is investigating the CIA working with the FBI on sources and actions to frame President Trump for Election interference.

Ranks within CIA reportedly ‘anxious’ as DOJ plans to dig deeper on suspicious origins of Russia probe

The Department of Justice plans to interview two CIA officers for its investigation into the suspicious origins of Robert Mueller’s fruitless Russia collusion investigation.

 

Specifically, U.S. Attorney John Durham of Connecticut will question a senior counterintelligence official and a senior analyst who investigated Russia’s attempts to interfere in the 2016 election, according to the New York Times.

 

Sources say that the Deep State anti-Trump operatives within the CIA are worried about the potential fallout from this.

 

Did Obama FBI conspire with the CIA?

 

US Attorney General William Barr is trying to learn more about the sources that the Obama CIA and FBI relied on before deciding to spy on Trump campaign officials.

 

CIA Director Gina Haspel said her agency will cooperate with the investigation, but will ensure that CIA sources, methods, and intelligence are protected.

 

Basically, this is the first of a long line of inquiry to determine why bogus FISA warrants were issued to spy on 2016 Trump campaign officials and how the Obama FBI coordinated with the CIA to conclude that Russia allegedly tried to help Trump get elected and undermine Hillary Clinton.

 

This is all ironic since President Trump has been far tougher on Russian President Vladimir Putin than Barack Obama ever was.

Obama holdovers in CIA are worried

 

So far, the Barr investigation is not a criminal inquiry, but could lead to charges if wrongdoing is uncovered.

 

Sources told the Times that ranks within the CIA are anxious about the probe, since it could reveal the coup they were plotting against a sitting U.S. president — both before he took office and since.

 

Not surprisingly, Democrats are foaming at the mouth to protest AG Barr’s inquiry. This is especially ironic since Democrats have been investigating Trump and everyone associated with him around the clock — even for tangential matters unrelated to election meddling.

 

Former Obama CIA director John Brennan lashed out on Twitter, writing: “This is just the latest example of what Vice President Biden meant when he said that Mr. Trump is an existential threat to our country. “Unfit to be President” is a gross understatement. Donald Trump is undeserving of any public office, and all Americans should be outraged.”

 

This is just the latest example of what Vice President Biden meant when he said that Mr. Trump is an existential threat to our country. “Unfit to be President” is a gross understatement. @realDonaldTrump is undeserving of any public office, and all Americans should be outraged. https://t.co/vi0gYUxi67

 

— John O. Brennan (@JohnBrennan) June 12, 2019

 

Brennan monetized access to nation’s top Secrets

 

Meanwhile, in March 2019, Brennan meekly admitted that he pushed the Russia collusion hoax, citing “bad information” he received from his dubious (imaginary) sources.

 

John Brennan has shamelessly monetized his security clearance to get rich and to foment public hysteria that a sitting US president was secretly an agent of the Russian government.

 

In August 2018, President Trump revoked Brennan’s security clearance after he was caught leaking intel to the media.

 

Naturally, Brennan got enraged and repeatedly trashed President Trump on MSNBC, where he’s employed as a contributor.

Nail BO, H Clinton and other guilty democrats! I remember the Comey press conference on Clinton and I was excited as Comey was talking and leaning towards getting Clinton, then all of a sudden he dropped the call. It is now apparent Comey was a puppet for BO and many heads should roll. Clinton and others are corrupt and have a problem with the facts and the truth. Conservative Wisdom United.

Former FBI legal counsel Lisa Page testified to Congress that the Justice Department ordered the FBI not to charge former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton with “gross negligence” by mishandling classified information.

 

Transcripts of Page’s closed-door testimony in July 2018 were released Tuesday by Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA) on Tuesday, which included the following exchange with Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-TX):

 

RATCLIFFE: So let me if I can, I know I’m testing your memory. But when you say advice you got from the Department, you’re making it sound like it was the Department that told you: You’re not going to charge gross negligence because we’re the prosecutors and we’re telling you we’re not going to …

 

PAGE: That is correct.

 

RATFLIFFE: …bring a case based on that.

 

Ratcliffe highlighted the exchange on Twitter.

 

 

Page confirmed that the Department of Justice led by Attorney General Loretta Lynch had “multiple conversations” about charging Clinton with gross negligence but noted that it would be a rare decision.

 

“[T]hey did not feel they could sustain a charge,” she said, referring to the Department of Justice.

 

President Donald Trump reacted to the reports on Wednesday.

 

“The just revealed FBI Agent Lisa Page transcripts make the Obama Justice Department look exactly like it was, a broken and corrupt machine,” he wrote. “Hopefully, justice will finally be served. Much more to come!”

Clinton Whistleblowers: Thursday’s Public Hearing to Reveal “Explosive” Information


It’s been about two years (give or take) since Crooked Hillary and Slick Willie evidence began to be exposed to the public. A lack of smoking gun dot connections, a coverup-minded Obama Administration and a colluding Mainstream Media (MSM) have protected the Clintons for quite some time.

 

So, I wait with baited breath in hope this Sara Carter article will prove true that a hearing before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee are deserving recipients of criminal Justice.

Clinton Whistleblowers: Thursday’s Public Hearing to Reveal “Explosive” Information

 

By Sara Carter
December 12, 2018 | 3:31 PM EST

SaraCarter.com

 

Crooked Hillary

 

A trove of documents on the Clinton Foundation alleging possible pay for play and tax evasion have been turned over to the FBI and IRS by several investigative whistleblowers, who will be testifying in an open hearing before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Thursday, according to the committee and lawmakers.

 

Roughly 6,000 documents that are expected to reveal the nearly two-year investigation by the whistleblowers with a private firm called MDA Analytics LLC, which allegedly turned over the documents more than a year and a half ago to the IRS, according to John Solomon, who first published the report last week in The Hill

 

The whistleblowers are former federal criminal investigators, who allege that the Clinton Foundation was “engaged in illegal activities and may be liable for millions of dollars in delinquent taxes and penalties,” according to Solomon.

 

The Department of Justice and the FBI’s Little Rock, Ark. field office, which is believed to be investigating the foundation, have allegedly obtained the documentation from the whistleblowers as well, according to lawmakers who’ve spoken with the whistleblowers.

 

Clinton Foundation officials could not be immediately reached for comment.

 

However, a former whistleblower, who has spoken with agents from the Little Rock FBI field office last year and worked for years as an undercover informant collecting information on Russia’s nuclear energy industry for the bureau, noted his enormous frustration with the DOJ and FBI. He describes as a two-tiered justice system that failed to actively investigate the information he provided years ago on the Clinton Foundation and Russia’s dangerous meddling with the U.S. nuclear industry and energy industry during the Obama administration.

 

William D. Campbell’s story was first published by this reporter in 2017. He turned over more than 5,000 documents and detailed daily briefs to the bureau when he served as a confidential informant reporting on Russia’s nuclear giant Rosatom. Campbell worked as an energy consultant, gaining the trust of Russians and providing significant insight into Russia’s strategic plans to gain global dominance in the uranium industry. He reported on Russian’s intentions to build a closer relationship with Obama administration officials, to include then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, as reported. The documents he turned over to the DOJ, which were reviewed by this news site, showed Campbell had also provided highly sensitive information both related to the uranium case, as well as other intelligence matters, since 2006.

 

Special Counsel Robert Mueller was the director of the FBI at the time Campbell was a confidential informant and according to Campbell, the information was briefed to Mueller by his FBI handlers.

 

Rep. Mark Meadows

 

“(Mueller) received the documents, copies of which I still have, over a period of years and ignored a national security threat to the United States because of his political preference,” said Campbell, who said he is frustrated that the investigation into the Clinton Foundation and the other information he provided was apparently ignored years ago.

 

“These men were in charge of transport of nuclear materials (inside the United States) while committing criminal activity here in the United States and signing major US utility contracts,” said Campbell, referring to the information he provided the FBI on the American company Transportation Logistics International, also known as TLI, was the primary transport company for Russian enriched uranium sold to the United States.

 

“One teacup of what they were transporting both domestically and abroad could close down Wall Street or Washington,” Campbell warned. “(Mueller) ignored and delayed their arrests over years while I was risking my life undercover and interacting with these (Vladimir) Putin appointees both here in the United States and overseas.”

 

But Rep. Mark Meadows, chairman of the Freedom Caucus and member of the committee, said this time it will be different. He noted that the investigation is apparently ongoing with the FBI and DOJ and believes the information being delivered for Thursday’s hearing to be ‘explosive’ in nature and may help connect the dots.

 

Meadow’s told Fox New’s Martha MaCallum Tuesday, “the American people, they want to bring some closure, not just a few sound bites, here or there, so we’re going to be having a hearing this week, not only covering over some of those 6,000 pages that you’re talking about, but hearing directly from three whistleblowers that have actually spent the majority of the last two years investigating this.”

 

Meadows, who’s also on President Donald Trump’s short-list to replace Chief of Staff Gen. John Kelly, noted that some “allegations (whistleblowers) make are quite explosive.”

 

“We just look at the contributions. Now everybody’s focused on the contributions for the Clinton Foundation and what has happened just in the last year,” he said. “But if you look at it, it had a very strong rise, the minute she was selected as secretary of state. It dipped down when she was no longer there.”

 

“And then rose again, when she decided to run for president. So there are all kinds of allegations of pay-to-play and that kind of thing,” Meadows added.

Kavanaugh hearing confirms the existence of the Deep State


Bob Livingston writes an editorial type piece drawing various associations displaying the existence of a Deep State in American government all related to the public view of the Blasey-Ford/Kavanaugh hearings.

 

Livingston pulls no punches. Livingston goes further in some credible speculation showing a GOP Establishment involvement in this clandestine Deep State that even implicates now Associate Justice Kavanaugh due to some past questionable extra-legal actions. Actions that by the way raised eyebrows in a minority of Conservative pundits questioning Kavanaugh’s Originalist credentials. Privately I pray those pundits are wrong pertaining to the level of Kavanaugh’s Originalism. Only time will reveal the accuracy of Conservative suspicions.

 

Read the Livingston piece and draw your own conclusions.

Kavanaugh hearing confirms the existence of the Deep State

 

By Bob Livingston – Editor, The Bob Livingston Letter™ 

October 8, 2018 

Personal Liberty

 

KAVANAUGH-HEARINGS-Swearing In

 

The Kabuki act that was the confirmation process of Brett Kavanaugh revealed something far more important than that underaged children of privilege growing up in the shadows of the District of Criminals were undisciplined and regularly engaged in parent-endorsed, if not parent-encouraged, debauchery. Unfortunately, not one in a million have grasped it, focusing instead on the licentious details Democrat senators directed them toward and whether one story was more credible than the other.

 

I have told you before that there are two governments in America; the one you see and the one you don’t. The one you see is the politicians and the courts. They are actors who give the illusion that you have a constitutional republic based on the rule of law and that you have some input in governmental processes.

 

The other government is unseen. It has many names and many elements that work against the best interests of the people. It is incestuous. Among its names are shadow government, powers that be and the simple term “they.” I call it the Deep State.

 

It is made up of faceless bureaucrats, crony corporations, the power elite, behind-the-scenes political operatives and lawyers, the banksters, the vast U.S. intelligence apparatus, the military-industrial complex (as revealed by President Eisenhower) and the globalists found in think tanks, the Council on Foreign Relations and Trilateral Commission.

 

The cover was pulled off a few of them these last days and weeks. They’ve been circling around the Christine Blasey Ford narrative like flies around a carcass. And, she, in fact, may even be one of them.

 

Despite hours of investigation by the Senate Judiciary Committee and the FBI, none of Ford’s accusations could be corroborated. The witnesses named by Ford – and by the second Kavanaugh accuser, Deborah Ramirez – denied knowledge of the activities the two women described, according to released or leak portions of the FBI investigation.

 

One of Ford’s witnesses is Leland Keyser, the sole female “witness” Ford named. Ford described Keyser as her best friend in their high school days at Holton-Arms preparatory school. Keyser is a former professional golfer who is now in poor health. Her health was the excuse Ford used to explain away Keyser’s refusal to corroborate Ford’s claims.

 

Keyser’s friends told The Daily Mail that Keyser was “blindsided” by Ford’s pulling her into the case. Ford friend Keyser was married to Bob Beckel for 10 years until they divorced in 2002. [Blog Editor: That’s the same Bob Beckel fired from Fox News for being too free with Left Wing curmudgeon profanity on The Five.]

 

Beckel worked for the State Department under Jimmy Carter, managed Walter Mondale’s president campaign, managed other Democrat politico campaigns and worked as a lobbyist for many years.  He now works as a political pundit on Fox News.

 

Ford’s friend Monica McClean is one of the “beach friends” with whom she discussed the possibility of coming forward with her accusations against Kavanaugh. She’s also the woman Ford coached on how to take a polygraph, according to a former Ford boyfriend.

 

McClean worked at the FBI for 24 years, retiring in 2016. She was a FBI field rep in the office of former U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara. Prior to becoming U.S. Attorney, Bharara was chief counsel to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (Communist-NY), and played an important role on the Senate Judiciary Committee.

 

Keyser told investigators this week that McClean had been pressuring her to change her story and admit that she knew about Kavanaugh’s attempt to assault Ford 35 years ago. Her former partner in New York is Jim Margolin. Margolin is still with the FBI and is part of the Robert Mueller investigation into former Donald Trump fixer Michael Cohen. [Blog Editor: An example the FBI “rank-n-file” may not be as politically neutral in their investigations that even many Conservatives try to paint a picture.]

 

Ford’s lawyer, Debra Katz, is a longtime leftist political operative and fundraiser for SHillary Clinton. She is also vice chair of the George Soros-funded Project on Government Oversight. Soros money has gone to protestors interrupting the Kavanaugh nomination, and those women who cowed Senator Jeff Flake (Coward-Arizona) in an elevator last week were Soros operatives.

 

Ford’s brother, Ralph Blasey III, was formerly a lawyer with the leftist law firm Baker, Hostetler, which created Fusion GPS, the Democrat opposition research organization that employs or employed the wife of FBI agent Bruce Ohr and which created the phony Trump-Russia dossier. Blasey left Baker, Hostetler in 2004. The building in which the offices of Baker, Hostetler reside include CIA front companies Red Coats, Inc., Admiral Security Services and Datawatch. The building is owned by Ford’s father, Ralph Blasey II.

 

But Kavanaugh himself is a Deep State swamp creature. As told by Ambrose Evans-Pritchard, the international business editor of The Daily Telegraph and long-time reporter on American government, while Kavanaugh worked for Ken Starr on the Bill Clinton Whitewater investigation, Kavanaugh actively worked to discredit a witness in the Vince Foster death case. The witness, Patrick Knowlton, was the first person at the scene of Foster’s death at Fort Marcy Park.

 

Knowlton later sued FBI agents he claimed were working for Kavanaugh, alleging witness tampering and conspiracy to violate his civil rights. Kavanaugh later wrote the Starr Report on Foster’s death, covering up the fact that Foster was murdered and his body was dumped in the park.

 

Kavanaugh, while working as legal counsel in the White House of George Bush the lesser, also helped push the PATRIOT Act, which destroyed due process and 4th and 5th Amendments.

 

Kavanaugh’s lawyer for his Senate Judiciary process is Beth Wilkinson, a longtime Democrat lawyer who represented several top aides to Hillary Clinton during the FBI investigation into Clinton’s homebrew server. She is married to David Gregory of CNN. Wilkinson was also on the prosecution team that convicted Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh.

 

That implicates her in the coverup of this false flag operation, protecting the FBI and then-U.S. Attorney Eric Holder, who provided the explosives for McVeigh and his partner, Terry Nichols.

 

That there exists a nebulous group or groups actively working against the wishes of the American people is a difficult concept for a people as conditioned as Americans are to grasp. But anyone telling you there is no Deep State is either blind and ignorant or is lying to you.

Weekly Update: Strzok Drafted Comey’s Letter to Congress About Weiner’s Laptop


In Judicial Watch’s Weekly Update Tom Fitton exposes the blatant corruption of the Deep State against President Donald Trump and his Administration. Fitton also delves into a Federal Judge telling the Department of Army to reconsider its refusal to award Staff Sgt. Joshua Berry a Purple Heart for wounds received from Islamic Terrorist Nidal Malik Hasan during the Fort Hood Massacre in 2009.

 

Staff Sgt. Joshua Berry – Wounded at Ft. Hood

 

In case you haven’t figured it out, Deep State is simply another name for the Democratic Party. And the Dems have string pullers largely embodied under the auspices of former President Barack Hussein Obama. And at the risk of sounding the Conspiracy Theorist nut, you can globalist string pullers such as George Soros.

Weekly Update: Strzok Drafted Comey’s Letter to Congress About Weiner’s Laptop

 

Email sent by Tom Fitton

Email sent 9/7/2018 5:31 PM

Judicial Watch (online version)

 

Strzok’s ‘Fingerprints’ Are on Comey’s Letter About the Weiner Laptop

Army Must Rethink Purple Heart for Joshua Berry in Fort Hood Terror Attack

State Dept. Uses Outdated, Unsecure System to Spot Visa/Passport Fraud

 

Strzok’s ‘Fingerprints’ Are on Comey’s Letter About the Weiner Laptop

 

We have added two new pieces to the giant jigsaw puzzle showing the effort to undermine President Trump. They show more of the workings of the disgraced former FBI Director James Comey and fired FBI official Peter Strzok.

 

We have released 424 pages of FBI records, including an email revealing that Strzok created the initial draft of the October 2016 letter Comey sent to Congress notifying lawmakers of the discovery of Hillary Clinton emails on the laptop of disgraced former Congressman Anthony Weiner.

 

Another email suggests that the FBI had not yet completed its review of Clinton’s emails by the time Comey sent a second letter to Congress on November 6, 2016, reconfirming his belief that Hillary Clinton shouldn’t be charged with a crime.

 

The records were produced as a result of a June 2018 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit filed after the DOJ failed to respond to a September 1, 2017, request (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of Justice (No. 1:18-cv-01448)). Judicial Watch is seeking:

 

  1. All drafts of James Comey’s statement closing the Clinton email investigation, from his original draft in April or May 2016 to the final version.

 

  1. All records of communications between or among FBI officials regarding Comey’s draft statement closing the Clinton email investigation, including all memoranda and/or analyses of the factual and/or legal justification for his July 5, 2016 announcement regarding his decision not to seek Mrs. Clinton’s prosecution.

 

  1. All records previously provided to the Office of Special Counsel in the course of its now-closed Hatch Act investigation of Mr. Comey.

 

The documents reveal that on October 27, 2016, Peter Strzok emailed other senior FBI officials a draft notice letter from Comey to Congress about the Weiner laptop discovery and the reopening of the Clinton investigation. The emails indicated that Strzok and another official Jon (Last Name Unknown) authored the notification to Congress. The notification, according the DOJ IG, came a full month after the emails were discovered by the FBI on the Weiner laptop.

 

According to the documents, at 11:04 p.m. on Saturday, November 5, 2016, FBI Chief of Staff James Rybicki sent Comey an email containing a redacted draft document which he referred to as a “New Proposal” saying: “Folks, Per our 1000pm conversation, below is a revised straw man for discussion. Again, we could use this if the review when completed supports our conclusions. My comments again in ALL CAPS and bold italics.”

 

Rybicki’s “New Proposal … straw man” apparently refers to a draft of Comey’s letter to Congress concerning the FBI’s review of the 650,000 Clinton emails found on Weiner’s laptop. At the time of the Rybicki email, Comey was preparing his letter informing Congress of the FBI’s findings, and according to page 390 of the June 2018 report from the DOJ Office of the Inspector General, the deliberations regarding the letter began on the afternoon of November 3 and concluded “very early on November 6.”

 

Despite Rybicki’s email suggesting late on November 5 that the review of the new emails had not been completed, Comey’s November 6 letter to Congress stated, “[W]e reviewed all of the communications that were to or from Hillary Clinton while she was Secretary of State. Based on our review, we have not changed our conclusions that we expressed in July with respect to Secretary Clinton.”

 

Comey’s “conclusions” in July were that no charges should be filed against Clinton, despite her repeatedly having sent classified information over her unsecured, non-State-Department server. Comey later admitted that he had drafted his July exoneration more than a month earlier.

 

Real Clear Investigations’ reporter Paul Sperry recently reported that “only 3,077 of the 694,000 emails [found on the Weiner laptop] were directly reviewed for classified or incriminating information. Three FBI officials completed that work in a single 12-hour spurt the day before Comey again cleared Clinton of criminal charges.”

 

These new documents provide more details of the corrupt and dishonest FBI investigation of the incredible revelations that Clinton’s classified and other emails were present on Anthony Weiner’s laptop. When will the Sessions DOJ and Wray FBI finally begin an honest investigation of Hillary Clinton’s national security crimes?

 

In a related Judicial Watch lawsuit, the State Department told the court in October 2017: “The State Department identified approximately 2,800 work-related documents among the documents provided by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.”

 

In January 2018, in accordance with a court order, the State Department began turning Weiner emails over to us. Initially, 18 classified emails were found in the 798 documents produced by the State Department.

 

Further examples of our work in this case on your behalf can be found here.

 

Army Must Rethink Purple Heart for Joshua Berry in Fort Hood Terror Attack

 

We’ve helped the father of a deceased Army sergeant get a step closer to winning the recognition his son deserves for his role in a terrorist attack within our borders.

 

U.S. District Court Judge Christopher R. Cooper has ordered the Army to reconsider its decision denying a Purple Heart to Sgt. Berry for injuries sustained in the 2009 international terrorist attack at Fort Hood, Texas.

 

If the Army wishes to stick with the denial, it must sufficiently explain why Sgt. Berry is not entitled to the Purple Heart.

 

On remand, the Army, assuming it wishes to stick with its determination, must explain why Berry is not entitled to a Purple Heart and do so with sufficient clarity that “a court can measure” the denial “against the ‘arbitrary or capricious’ standard of the [Administrative Procedures Act].”

 

On October 12, 2017, we filed a lawsuit on behalf of Sgt. Berry’s father, Howard M. Berry, who is challenging the Army’s denial of the Purple Heart under the Administrative Procedures Act (APA) (Howard M. Berry v. Mark Esper, Secretary of the Army, et al. (No. 1:17-cv-02112)).

 

Following the Fort Hood attack, the Secretary of Defense declined to recognize the mass shooting as an international terrorist attack against the United States. Instead, the attack was characterized as “workplace violence.” As a result, active duty service members injured in the attack were ineligible for the Purple Heart, among other awards and benefits.

 

In response, Congress enacted legislation in 2014 mandating that service members killed or wounded in an attack targeting members of the armed forces and carried out by an individual in communication with and inspired or motivated by a foreign terrorist organization be eligible for the Purple Heart.

 

As a result, in 2015, the Secretary of the Army announced that service members injured or killed in the Fort Hood attack were eligible for the Purple Heart if they met the regulatory criteria.

 

The Purple Heart is not a “recommended” decoration for soldiers killed or wounded in combat or under attack. Rather, a soldier is entitled to a Purple Heart upon meeting specific criteria. Sgt. Berry met the regulatory criteria for an award of the Purple Heart.

 

Sgt. Berry suffered a dislocated left shoulder during the November 5, 2009, terrorist attack on Fort Hood by Maj. Nidal Hasan. Hasan, who admitted during his 2013 court martial that he had been influenced by al Qaeda, killed 13 people and injured 30 others.

 

In witness statements given to the U.S. Army Criminal Investigative Command (“CID”) and in a separate statement given to a Texas Ranger, Sgt. Berry had estimated that Hasan fired 30-40 rounds outside Building 42004 at Ft. Hood. Sgt. Berry told those around him to get down on the floor and stay away from the doors and windows. When Sgt. Berry heard gunshots hit the metal doors near him, he leaped over a desk to take cover and, in so doing, dislocated his left shoulder. He then heard Hasan trying to kick in the doors. According to a witness statement from another individual, Hasan fired three rounds at the briefing room doors.

 

Mr. Berry applied for a posthumous award of the Purple Heart to his son. The U.S. Army Decorations Board denied Mr. Berry’s application. In April 2015, the Army awarded the Purple Heart to 47 service members injured in the Fort Hood attack. Sgt. Berry was not among them.

 

On April 17, 2016, upon Mr. Berry’s application for review, a three-member panel of the Army Board for Correction of Military Records recommended that all Army records concerning Sgt. Berry be corrected to award Sgt. Berry the Purple Heart. The panel found “[t]here is no question that [Sgt. Berry]’s injury met the basic medical criteria for award of the [Purple Heart].” The Board’s eight-page determination provided a detailed analysis of “the degree to which the enemy (i.e., the terrorist) caused [Sgt. Berry’s] injury.”

 

A few months later, however, Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Army (Review Boards) Francine C. Blackmon issued a single paragraph memorandum rejecting the Corrections Board’s recommendation:

 

I have reviewed the findings, conclusions, and Board member recommendations. I find there is not sufficient evidence to grant relief. Therefore, under the authority of 10 U.S.C. § 1552, I have determined that the facts do not support a conclusion that his injury met the criteria for a Purple Heart.

 

In his ruling, Judge Cooper said the court could not “meaningfully evaluate the reasoning behind” Blackmon’s decision. Decisions which are “utterly unreviewable,” the judge added “must be vacated as arbitrary and capricious.” Judge Cooper noted the Army’s final memorandum:

 

provides no meaningful analysis—only a boilerplate determination “that the facts do not support a conclusion that [Berry’s] injury met the criteria for a Purple Heart.” Why not? Was there conflicting evidence regarding how immediate of a threat Hasan posed to Berry as he sat inside the building? Was the evidence clear but the Deputy Assistant Secretary thought that Berry could have taken cover without injuring himself? Or did she read the regulations as categorically taking the Purple Heart off the table for service members injured while taking cover?

 

The denial letter provides no hints. In turn, the Court cannot meaningfully evaluate the reasoning behind it. That is enough to warrant remand.

 

We are thrilled by the court’s ruling and hope the Army quickly comes to its senses and finally awards Sgt. Berry a well-deserved Purple Heart.

 

State Dept. Uses Outdated, Unsecure System to Spot Visa/Passport Fraud

 

You will no longer wonder how Hillary Clinton got away with using a non-government email system housed in her home basement when you read this incredible story from our Corruption Chronicles blog. And you’ll wonder if the government learned anything at all from 9/11.

 

Though it claims the 9/11 attacks “reenergized” its mission, the State Department branch responsible for spotting visa and passport fraud fails to practice basic security protocols, leaving the nation extremely vulnerable to foreign threats. To keep potential terrorists from entering the United States, the monstrous agency with a $37 billion annual budget uses outdated machines that are poorly monitored and fails to protect data and perform basic security scans, according to a distressing federal audit. The report documents the alarming inefficiencies in a decades-old system—Bureau of Consular Affairs Fraud Prevention Program (CA/FPP)—used by the State Department to determine if foreigners seeking U.S. visas are being candid about their identity and where they have traveled. The goal is to oversee and coordinate the integrity of U.S. visa and citizenship processes by stopping fraud in the visa and passport system, a crucial tool to protect national security.

 

It turns out that the State Department’s security team is a bit of a joke, according to the incredible lapses documented in the report, which was made public recently by the agency’s Office of Inspector General (OIG). The team doesn’t even bother to patch the system, scan it for computer viruses or audit for evidence of breaches or compromises by hackers. In short, the State Department consular division ignores basic information security practices in this essential program used to screen potential threats. Nearly two decades after the worst terrorist attack on American soil, this is incredibly disturbing. In fact, the report states that “the events of September 11, 2001, reenergized CA/FPP’s mission.” Not enough, apparently. “OIG found deficiencies that included shared passwords and lack of access control lists or visitor logs,” the watchdog writes in its report. In addition, the flawed system’s “security officer did not perform regular patch management or anti-virus scanning on the network or regular audit and accountability reviews to identify data loss or potential intruder activities.”

 

It gets better, or rather, more enraging. The OIG found that no one monitors the server and the State Department doesn’t keep adequate logs of who accesses the information on the database. In fact, a SharePoint site established by the agency a decade ago to track “possible consular malfeasance” has never even been examined. Auditors found that management was not even aware that the system had never undergone an assessment to determine whether it contained information that exceeded SharePoint’s security categorization. “Without applying appropriate controls, the case management system and its information are vulnerable to unauthorized access or compromise,” the report states. This indicates that breaches could very well have occurred, but we’ll never know for sure thanks to the government’s incompetence. This may seem inconceivable to most Americans as the nation faces serious threats from radical elements.

 

OIG investigators gathered mountains of evidence in the course of their probe, which considered interviews with hundreds of State Department personnel and contractors as well as observations of daily operations and written questionnaires. This includes 178 interviews and 224 questionnaires completed by consular officers in the field as well as 54 filled out by agency employees and contractors domestically. The watchdog makes a multitude of recommendations to fix this laughable “security” system, but this very basic one sticks out: “The Bureau of Consular Affairs should implement a website content management process for the Office of Fraud Prevention Programs that includes a dedicated team responsible for the regular updating of website content.” Another simple recommendation is that the State Department’s Office of Fraud Prevention Programs implement required security controls in accordance with federal standards. It’s troubling that the agency watchdog has to suggest these elementary, common sense approaches to a program that is so imperative to national security.

 

Then again, this is the same agency that allowed Hillary Clinton to traffic highly classified information on an unsecure, personal email server. It is also the agency run by high-level officials who knew weak security at U.S. embassies and consulates worldwide could result in a tragedy like Benghazi long before Islamic jihadists raided the Special Mission, killing four Americans.

 

Every big organization has IT troubles, but this ineptitude imperils our country.

 

Until next week …

All Dots Connected Validity


John R. Houk

© August 13, 2018

I had a friend request on the MeWe social media (my MeWe profile) where I discovered a repost of a popular chain email. I haven’t figured out how to link to individual MeWe post as yet or I’d share it. I found it on Vonda’s MeWe page if you choose to look for it.

 

If you look around the Web this chain email is all over the place under various names, versions and snippets. I am calling the chain email All Dots Connected based on the first three words on this version.

 

As a Conservative, the chain email is so familiar much of the information you can find here or read from Conservative sources. The thing is though, chain emails are notoriously unreliable for reasons leaning from down-right untrue to partially true, right on through to manipulative propaganda of twisted facts and lies.

 

Indeed, most of the fact checkers (dominated by Leftist ideology) labels this chain email as false. I used to be a devotee of Snopes and Politifact as dependable fact checkers. Then I began to notice the false stamp on facts I knew directly was true or at least mostly true. Here are some posts exposing the Leftist taint of Snopes and Politifact. If you do a little of your own investigating you will probably discover a Leftist taint of most fact checking websites.

 

The fact checking website I currently trust the most is Truth or Fiction.

 

Realizing the bias of fact checkers I decided to do my own look at the chain email All Dots Connected. What I discovered was the post is mostly true. There are some assertions based on one source alone; viz., Roger Stone. Just to be upfront. Stone is berated by the Left as a Right-Wing Conspiracist nut-job. The political Right pundits even question his reliability on many if not most Stone’s line of thinking. You’ll have to decide for yourself on Stone’s credibility.

 

Roger Stone was a one-time campaign advisor for Donald Trump. This placed a target on Stone’s back from the Mueller witch hunt. BUT SURPRISE, just like President Trump, the Mueller hound dogs have found ZERO on Stone as a go-between involving Donald Trump and Russia meddling in the 2016 election:

 

Mr. Mueller, a former FBI director, was appointed in May 2017 to investigate Russia’s alleged involvement, including any potential collusion between the Trump campaign and Moscow.

 

Mr. Stone, 65, successfully predicted the release of Democratic documents by WikiLeaks during the race and previously claimed to be in contact with the website’s publisher, Julian Assange.

 

“I never received anything including allegedly hacked emails from WikiLeaks or Julian Assange or the Russians or anyone else,” Mr. Stone told ABC News. “[I] never passed them on to Donald Trump or the Trump campaign or anyone else.”

 

Individuals close to Mr. Stone who said they were contacted by Mr. Mueller’s office include Jason Sullivan, his former social media consultant; Andrew Miller, a longtime associate; Randy Credico, a radio host and comedian who personally met with Mr. Assange at his residence in London during the race; and fellow former Trump campaign advisers Sam Nunberg and Michael Caputo. John Kakanis, Mr. Stone’s driver and accountant, was subpoenaed to appear before the special counsel, Reuters previously reported.

 

“CNN reports Mueller probing my personal finances. Reuters reports Mueller subpoenas my current and former associates and now clear my e-mail, text and phone all monitored. My crime? Supporting @realdonaldtrump for President!” Mr. Stone said in a social media post this week.

 

The special counsel’s office declined to comment when reached by The Washington Times. (Mueller team pressing Roger Stone associates in Russian collusion probe: Report; By Andrew Blake; Washington Times; 7/13/18)

 

Currently Mueller is trying to strongarm Stone with investigations that have nothing to do with Russia interfering in the 2016 election. That witch hunt continues on getting anything on President Trump that had nothing to do with Mueller’s mandate to investigate if Trump and Russia worked together to fix the 2016 election cycle.

 

The last part of the chain email All Dots Connected tries to link Rod Rosenstein’s wife Lisa Barsoomian as a potential instrument of the CIA the to take down President Trump. To me, any such link is a huge stretch of the imagination of fantastical speculation. I have little doubt Barsoomian would work with other Deep Staters, but currently there is no connection other than her association with hubby Rosenstein, Comey, Mueller and the Clintons on some kind government basis.

 

AND NOW, All Dots Connected with linked sources, source quotes and personal commentary.

From Vonda MeWe Page

[Found very similar post entitled, “From ’01 to ’05 there was an ongoing investigation into the Clinton Foundation…”; By  SuperCharged2000; Investment Watch Blog; 7/24/18]

 

ALL DOTS CONNECTED…Clinton’s, Mueller, Rosenstein, Comey, Learner, plus secret guests … Let’s PLAY FOLLOW THE TRAIL…
Let’s follow the trail……

 

Here’s what it looks like when all the pieces are sewn together. It smells like conspiracy and treason. Everyone needs to read this. Slowly, and patiently, because it’s very important……

 

From 2001 to 2005 there was an ongoing investigation into the Clinton Foundation.

 

A Grand Jury had been empaneled.

 

Governments from around the world had donated to the “Charity”.

 

Yet, from 2001 to 2003 none of those “Donations” to the Clinton Foundation were declared. [The closest corroboration to this assertion is a Daily Mail lengthy article that shows the IRS refused to audit Clinton Foundation during this time period amidst inexplicable fraud schemes in alleged foreign charity work.]

 

Hmmm, now you would think that an honest investigator would be able to figure this out.

 

Guess who took over this investigation in 2002? [Truth or Fiction; 4/25/18]

 

Bet you can’t guess.

 

None other than James Comey.

 

Now, that’s interesting, isn’t it?

 

Guess who was transferred in to the Internal Revenue Service to run the Tax Exemption Branch of the IRS? [The Real Criminals, a RICO Scheme That Failed; By George McClellan; America Out Loud]

 

Your friend and mine, Lois “Be on The Look Out” (BOLO) Lerner.

Now, that’s interesting, isn’t it?

 

It gets better, well not really, but this is all just a series of strange coincidences, right?

 

Guess who ran the Tax Division inside the Department of Injustice from 2001 to 2005? [Ibid.]

 

No other than the Assistant Attorney General of the United States, Rod Rosenstein.

 

Now, that’s interesting, isn’t it?

 

Guess who was the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation during this time frame?

 

I know, it’s a miracle, just a coincidence, just an anomaly in statistics and chances, but it was Robert Mueller. [Ibid. and FBI.gov]

 

What do all four casting characters have in common?

 

They all were briefed and/or were front line investigators into the Clinton Foundation Investigation. [How $37 Million from the Clinton Foundation Disappeared in Baltimore; By Charles Ortel; LifeZette; 4/6/18]

 

Now that’s just a coincidence, right?

 

Ok, lets chalk the last one up to mere chance.

 

Let’s fast forward to 2009……

 

James Comey leaves the Justice Department to go and cash-in at Lockheed Martin. [Exposed: FBI Director James Comey’s Clinton Foundation Connection; By Patrick Howley; Breitbart; 9/10/16]

 

Hillary Clinton is running the State Department, on her own personal email server by the way.

 

The Uranium One “issue” comes to the attention of Hillary. [Axios – 10/24/17 AND The Hill – 11/02/17 06:00 AM EDT]

 

Like all good public servants do, you know looking out for America’s best interest, she decides to support the decision and approve the sale of 20% of US Uranium to no other than, the Russians.

 

Now you would think that this is a fairly straight up deal, except it wasn’t, the People got absolutely nothing out of it.

 

However, prior to the sales approval, no other than Bill Clinton goes to Moscow, gets paid 500K for a one-hour speech then meets with Vladimir Putin at his home for a few hours.

 

Ok, no big deal right?

 

Well, not so fast, the FBI had a mole inside the money laundering and bribery scheme. [FBI informant gathered years of evidence on Russian push for US nuclear fuel deals, including Uranium One, memos show; By JOHN SOLOMON; The Hill;  11/20/17 06:11 PM EST]

 

Guess who was the FBI Director during this time frame?

 

Yep, Robert Mueller.

 

He even delivered a Uranium Sample to Moscow in 2009. [Mueller’s Role in Delivering Uranium to Russians Raises Questions; By Steve Byas; The New American; 8/2/17]

 

Guess who was handling that case within the Justice Department out of the US Attorney’s Office in Maryland? [Russians Bragged About 10 Spies Assigned to Clinton; Mueller, McCabe, and Rosenstein Helped Cover It Up; By C. Mitchell Shaw; The New American; 3/1/18]

 

No other than, Rod Rosenstein.

 

Guess what happened to the informant?

 

The Department of Justice placed a GAG order on him and threatened to lock him up if he spoke out about it. [FBI Informant Testifies, Loretta Lynch Imposed Gag Order To Cover Moscow-Clinton Scheme; By Martin Walsh; Conservative Daily Post; 2/8/18 4:32 PM – Updated 5:16 PM]

 

How does 20% of the most strategic asset of the United States of America end up in Russian hands when the FBI has an informant, a mole providing inside information to the FBI on the criminal enterprise?

 

Guess what happened soon after the sale was approved?

 

~145 million dollars in “donations” made their way into the Clinton Foundation from entities directly connected to the Uranium One deal. [What We Know About The Russia-Clinton Uranium One Deal So Far Is Crazy Enough; By James H. Hyde; The Federalist; 12/5/17 –

 

‘The Kazakhstan deal was extremely lucrative for Giustra. He and others, such as Ian Telfer, who according to The New York Times served as Uranium One’s chairman, donated substantial amounts to the Clinton Foundation. In an interview with Tucker Carlson of Fox News, Schweizer says, “As this deal was coming for approval in 2010, the Clinton Foundation received [donations] from nine shareholders in this uranium company that was sold to the Russians. None of them all of a sudden decided they were going to donate large amounts of money to the Clinton Foundation, more than $145 million. And by the way, a lot of those donations were never declared publicly by the Clintons, they were hidden.”’]

 

Guess who was still at the Internal Revenue Service working the Charitable Division?

 

No other than, Lois Lerner.

 

Ok, that’s all just another series of coincidences, nothing to see here, right?

 

Let’s fast forward to 2015.

 

Due to a series of tragic events in Benghazi and after the 9 “investigations” the House, Senate and at State Department, Trey Gowdy who was running the 10th investigation as Chairman of the Select Committee on Benghazi discovers that Hillary ran the State Department on an unclassified, unauthorized, outlaw personal email server.

 

He also discovered that none of those emails had been turned over when she departed her “Public Service” as Secretary of State which was required by law. [Hillary Clinton didn’t comply with email policies, State Dept IG finds; By CBS/AP; CBSNews.com; 3/25/16 10:56 AM – Updated 1:07 PM EDT:

 

‘”At a minimum, Secretary Clinton should have surrendered all emails dealing with Department business before leaving government service and, because she did not do so, she did not comply with the Department’s policies that were implemented in accordance with the Federal Records Act,” the report reads.

 

It goes on to say that Clinton produced 55,000 pages of emails to “mitigate” her failure to preserve the emails, but the inspector general “notes that Secretary Clinton’s production [of 55,000 pages of emails] was incomplete.” The report also says that the 55,000 pages included no emails from the first few months of her tenure as secretary for either received or sent messages.’]

 

He also discovered that there was Top Secret information contained within her personally archived email. [But her emails? You’re dang right her emails; By  Marc A. Thiessen; Chicago Tribune; 6/20/18 4:55 PM:

 

“In fact, the overlooked bombshell of the report is the inspector general’s confirmation that classified information contained in Clinton’s emails was in fact compromised by foreign intelligence services, and that Clinton had recklessly emailed President Barack Obama using her unsecured personal email from the territory of a hostile foreign adversary.”]

 

 (Let’s not forget at least 10 CIA spies in China were killed by the Chinese because of the leaks and god knows what else occurred) [Blog Editor: I could not find a direct link to CIA deaths in China and Crooked Hillary’s illegal private email server. BUT a connect the dots look shows Crooked Hillary’s private may have contributed to Chinese murders of CIA Agents. Here are some dots to consider:

 

A DOT:

 

The classified information found on Secretary Clinton’s email server was quite alarming. For instance, at least 47 of Secretary Clinton’s emails from her basement server contain the notation “B3 CIA PERS/ORG,” which indicates the material referred to CIA personnel or matters related to the agency. Ultimately, the FBI determined that:

 

“110 e-mails in 52 e-mail chains have been determined by the owning [federal agency] to contain classified information at the time they were sent or received. Eight of those chains contained information that was Top Secret at the time they were sent; 36 chains contained Secret information at the time; and eight contained Confidential information, which is the lowest level of classification. Separate from those, about 2,000 additional e-mails were “up-classified” to make them Confidential; the information in those had not been classified at the time the e-mails were sent.” (Critical Cybersecurity Takeaways From Hillary’s Email Debacle; By Stark On IR; CyberSecurityDocket.com; 7/15/16 12:19 pm)

 

A Dot:

 

The Chinese government systematically dismantled C.I.A. spying operations in the country starting in 2010, killing or imprisoning more than a dozen sources over two years and crippling intelligence gathering there for years afterward.

 

… Some were convinced that a mole within the C.I.A. had betrayed the United States. Others believed that the Chinese had hacked the covert system the C.I.A. used to communicate with its foreign sources. Years later, that debate remains unresolved.

 

 

Still others were put in jail. All told, the Chinese killed or imprisoned 18 to 20 of the C.I.A.’s sources in China, according to two former senior American officials, effectively unraveling a network that had taken years to build. (Killing C.I.A. Informants, China Crippled U.S. Spying Operations; By Mark MazzettiAdam GoldmanMichael S. Schmidt and Matt Apuzzo; NYT; 5/20/17)

 

A Dot:

 

Clinton and her top aides had access to a Pentagon-run classified network that goes up to the Secret level, as well as a separate system used for Top Secret communications.

 

The two systems — the Secret Internet Protocol Router Network (SIPRNet) and the Joint Worldwide Intelligence Communications System (JWICS) — are not connected to the unclassified system, known as the Non-Classified Internet Protocol Router Network (NIPRNet). You cannot email from one system to the other, though you can use NIPRNet to send ­emails outside the government.

 

Somehow, highly classified information from SIPRNet, as well as even the super-secure JWICS, jumped from those closed systems to the open system and turned up in at least 1,340 of Clinton’s home emails — including several the CIA earlier this month flagged as containing ultra-secret Sensitive Compartmented Information and Special Access Programs, a subset of SCI.

 

 

As a result of Clinton’s negligence, former Defense Secretary Robert Gates said in a recent interview he thinks “the odds are pretty high” that hostile foreign powers like Iran, China and Russia hacked Clinton’s homebrew email server and stole US secrets. (Hillary’s team copied intel off top-secret server to email; By Paul Sperry; NY Post; 1/24/16 5:09am)

 

A Dot:

 

Former top FBI lawyer Lisa Page testified during two days of closed-door House hearings, revealing shocking new Intel against her old bosses at the Bureau, according the well-placed FBI sources.

 

 

The embattled Page tossed James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok and Bill Priestap among others under the Congressional bus, alleging the upper echelon of the FBI concealed intelligence confirming Chinese state-backed ‘assets’ had illegally acquired former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s 30,000+ “missing” emails, federal sources said.

 

The Russians didn’t do it. The Chinese did, according to well-placed FBI sources.

 

And while Democratic lawmakers and the mainstream media prop up Russia as America’s boogeyman, it was the ironically Chinese who acquired Hillary’s treasure trove of classified and top secret intelligence from her home-brewed private server.

 

 

Hundreds of top secret documents and even the president’s daily travel and security itineraries were on that server — and intercepted by a communist country — yet the FBI sat on the evidence. Likewise, all of Clinton’s and her inner circle’s outgoing emails were compromised as well, sources confirmed.

 

Even the Inspector General had tipped off the FBI — specifically Strzok — about the foreign breach. Still, no timely case was pursued. (FBI: Lisa Page Dimes Out Top FBI Officials During Classified House Testimony; Bureau Bosses Covered Up Evidence China Hacked Hillary’s Top Secret Emails; By Investigative Bureau; True Pundit; 7/17/18)

 

That is enough Dots for me to connect CIA deaths in China to Crooked Hillary’s illegal private email server.]

 

Sparing you the State Departments cover up, the nostrums they floated, the delay tactics that were employed and the outright lies that were spewed forth from the necks of the Kerry State Department, we shall leave it with this…… they did everything humanly possible to cover for Hillary.

 

Now this is amazing, guess who became FBI Director in 2013?

 

Guess who secured 17 no bid contracts for his employer (Lockheed Martin) with the State Department and was rewarded with a six million dollar thank you present when he departed his employer? [Blog Editor:

 

But Comey earned $6 million in one year alone from Lockheed Martin. Lockheed Martin became a Clinton Foundation donor that very year.

 

Comey served as deputy attorney general under John Ashcroft for two years of the Bush administration. When he left the Bush administration, he went directly to Lockheed Martin and became vice president, acting as a general counsel.

 

How much money did James Comey make from Lockheed Martin in his last year with the company, which he left in 2010? More than $6 million in compensation.

 

Lockheed Martin is a Clinton Foundation donor. The company admitted to becoming a Clinton Global Initiative member in 2010.

 

According to records, Lockheed Martin is also a member of the American Chamber of Commerce in Egypt, which paid Bill Clinton $250,000 to deliver a speech in 2010.

 

In 2010, Lockheed Martin won 17 approvals for private contracts from the Hillary Clinton State Department. (Exposed: FBI Director James Comey’s Clinton Foundation Connection; By Patrick Howley; Breitbart; 9/10/16)

 

Most of the Left-Wing fact checkers dispute the direct connection between Comey, Lockheed Martin and Crooked Hillary. The Leftists twist the dots with a “FALSE” disregarding the linkage between dot to claim no direct connection means it didn’t happen. The most neural fact checker – Truth or Fiction – says the facts are correct but those facts do not provide a provable direct link, hence labels the linkage as misleading – HERE and HERE.]

 

No other than James Comey.

 

Amazing how all those no-bids just went right through at State, huh?

 

Now he is the FBI Director in charge of the “Clinton Email Investigation” after of course his FBI Investigates the Lois Lerner “Matter” at the Internal Revenue Service and exonerates her. [Blog Editor: This should sound familiar:

 

“The U.S. Department of Justice and the FBI began an investigation into the IRS controversy in May 2013.[30] In October 2015, the DOJ announced it was closing the investigation and would not seek criminal charges.[1] The determination came after an investigation of almost two years, in which the DOJ and FBI interviewed more than 100 witnesses and reviewed more than a million pages of IRS documents.[1]

 

In a letter to House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, Republican of Virginia, announcing the case closure, Assistant Attorney General for Legislative Affairs Peter J. Kadzik wrote that while “our investigation uncovered substantial evidence of mismanagement, poor judgment, and institutional inertia…Not a single IRS employee reported any allegation, concern or suspicion that the handling of tax-exempt applications—or any other IRS function—was motivated by political bias, discriminatory intent, or corruption.”[1] Kadzik wrote “We found no evidence that any IRS official acted based on political, discriminatory, corrupt, or other inappropriate motives that would support a criminal prosecution.”[31] Kadzik stated that the investigation specifically absolved Lerner of criminal liability, and determined that Lerner was in fact the first official to recognize a problem and try and correct it.[1][32] (FBI finds no evidence to support criminal prosecution; Wikipedia; page was last edited on 6/18/18, at 03:09 (UTC)”)]

 

Nope…. couldn’t find any crimes there.

 

Can you guess what happened next?

 

In April 2016, James Comey drafts an exoneration letter of Hillary Rodham Clinton, meanwhile the DOJ is handing out immunity deals like candy. [Blog Editor:

 

“Former FBI Director James Comey started to draft a statement exonerating Hillary Clinton in the bureau’s investigation into her use of a private email server before the FBI interviewed her or her key witnesses, the Senate Judiciary Committee said Thursday.

 

“Conclusion first, fact-gathering second — that’s no way to run an investigation. The FBI should be held to a higher standard than that, especially in a matter of such great public interest and controversy,” Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, and Judiciary Subcommittee Chairman Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said in a letter to the FBI.

 

The Judiciary Committee reviewed transcripts, which were heavily redacted, indicating Comey began drafting the exoneration statement in April or May 2016, before the FBI interviewed up to 17 key witnesses, including Clinton and some of her close aides. (James Comey started drafting statement exonerating Hillary Clinton before FBI interviewed her, aides; By Melissa Quinn; Washington Examiner; 8/31/17 01:40 PM)]

 

They didn’t even convene a Grand Jury.

 

Like a lightning bolt of statistical impossibility, like a miracle from God himself, like the true “Gangsta” Homey is, James steps out into the cameras of an awaiting press conference on July the 8th of 2016 and exonerates the Hillary from any wrongdoing. [Blog Editor:

Can you see the pattern?

 

It goes on and on, Rosenstein becomes Asst. Attorney General, Comey gets fired based upon a letter by Rosenstein, Comey leaks government information to the press, Mueller is assigned to the Russian Investigation sham by Rosenstein to provide cover for decades of malfeasance within the FBI and DOJ and the story continues.

 

FISA Abuse, political espionage….. pick a crime, any crime, chances are…… this group and a few others did it.

 

All the same players.

 

All compromised and conflicted.

 

All working fervently to NOT go to jail themselves.

 

All connected in one way or another to the Clintons.

 

They are like battery acid, they corrode and corrupt everything they touch.

 

How many lives have these two destroyed?

 

As of this writing, the Clinton Foundation, in its 20+ years of operation of being the largest International Charity Fraud in the history of mankind, has never been audited by the Internal Revenue Service.

 

Let us not forget that Comey’s brother works for DLA Piper, the law firm that does the Clinton Foundation’s taxes. [Report: Comey’s Brother Works for the Law Firm That Handles Clinton Foundation’s Taxes; By June; Gateway Pundit; 5/12/17]

 

And,

See the person that is the common denominator to all the crimes above and still doing her evil escape legal maneuvers at the top of the 3 Letter USA Agencies? Yep, that would be Hillary R. Clinton.

 

WHO IS LISA BARSOOMIAN?

 

Let’s learn a little about Mrs. Lisa H. Barsoomian’s background. [Blog Editor: Much of the information below is based on Roger Stone posts. Incidentally, Stone’s website is under a red McAfee alert warning:

We regularly scan sites for suspicious and malicious activity — and this one just isn’t safe. You’ll find more details below.

 

 

One should consider if the McAfee alert is Left-Wing based or is actually infected with malicious content harmful to one’s computer. Nevertheless, many Conservative websites reference the Stone post and those websites are not under a McAfee alert.]

 

Lisa H. Barsoomian, a US Attorney that graduated from Georgetown Law, is a protege of James Comey and Robert Mueller. [Blog Editor:

 

“Enter Lisa Barsoomian, wife of Rod Rosenstein. Lisa is a high-powered attorney in Washington, DC, who specializes in opposing Freedom of Information Act requests on behalf of the Intelligence Communities. She works for R. Craig Lawrence, an attorney who has represented Robert Mueller three times, James Comey five times, Barack Obama forty-five times, Kathleen Sebelius fifty-six times, Bill Clinton forty times, and Hillary Clinton seventeen times between 1991 and 2017.

 

Barsoomian participated in some of this work personally and has herself represented the FBI at least five separate times. It would be great to research the specifics of the cases she worked in, but many of the documents from the Court Dockets relating to these cases have been removed from the D.C. District and Appeals Court, including records of her representation for Clinton in 1998’s case Hamburg. V. Clinton.

 

The “Three Amigos” have surprisingly obvious conflicts of interest in their past and current investigatory responsibilities. Mueller even acted as a delivery boy for Hillary’s State Department, hand transporting ten grams of highly enriched uranium under the auspices of counter-terror. Was it a coincidence that this happened at the same time as Hillary and her associate John Podesta were nurturing the Uranium One deal that would see Russia take control over 20% of America’s proven uranium reserves? Shortly after the Russia uranium deal closed, the Clinton Foundation was showered with many millions of dollars from Russian donors.” (The “Truth” Part III: The Three Amigos; By Dan Newman; Truth News Network; 8/9/18)

“But the biggest reason why Rosenstein should recuse himself is that his wife was mentored by both Comey and Mueller and has been involved in many cases representing the FBI and Democrats involved in this case.

 

Roger Stone reported the following on Lisa Barsoomian in 2017:

 

Enter Lisa Barsoomian, wife of Rod Rosenstein.  Lisa is a high-powered attorney in Washington, DC, who specializes in opposing Freedom of Information Act requests on behalf of the Deep State, err, I mean, the Intelligence Communities.

 

Lisa Barsoomian works for R. Craig Lawrence, an attorney who has represented Robert Mueller three times, James Comey five times, Barack Obama forty-five times, Kathleen Sebelius fifty-six times, Bill Clinton forty times, and Hillary Clinton seventeen times between 1991 and 2017.

Her loyalties are clearly with the entities that make up the Deep State, as are her husbands.” (GRAHAM PUTS PRESSURE ON ROSENSTEIN FOR HIS PART IN THE MUELLER PROBE – BUT HERE’S WHAT YOU DON’T KNOW; By STEVEN AHLE; Steadfast and Loyal; 6/3/18)

 

And more:

 

Senator Lindsey Graham sent a letter on Thursday to Assistant Attorney General Rod Rosenstein about whether Rosenstein should recuse himself from the Mueller investigation due to his obvious conflicts with the case.

Graham should also request information about Rosenstein’s wife who represented the Clintons in the past.

Graham, in the May 31-dated letter, cited reports that Mueller’s investigation is looking at whether President Trump obstructed justice by firing Comey – and the fact that Trump relied on a Rosenstein-authored memo to justify the firing.  Rosenstein’s role was further detailed in a New York Times report earlier this week on a memo written by ousted FBI official Andrew McCabe.

Fox News has confirmed that the memo described a meeting where Rosenstein claimed Trump had asked him to reference Russia in his recommendation to fire Comey. Rosenstein declined, and instead focused on Comey’s handling of the Hillary Clinton email probe. Trump pushed back on the account Thursday.  “Not that it matters but I never fired James Comey because of Russia! The Corrupt Mainstream media loves to keep pushing that narrative, but they know it is not true!” Trump tweeted.

Rosenstein’s wife, Lisa Barsoomian, represented Bill Clinton in a case in the 1990’s.  This alone should be enough for Rosenstein to be unqualified for any role related to the Clintons, Obama or their cronies.

Roger Stone reported the following on Lisa Barsoomian in 2017 –

… Rosenstein’s wife is enough reason for him to recuse himself! (Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein’s Wife Also Has Extensive Ties to the Clintons, Mueller and Comey; Posted by Jim Hoft – Written by Joe Hoft; Gateway Pundit; 6/2/18)

 

Barsoomian, with her boss R. Craig Lawrence, represented Bill Clinton in 1998. [Hamburg v. Clinton documents of on Scribd.]

 

Lawrence also represented:

 

Robert Mueller three times;

James Comey five times;

Barack Obama 45 times;

Kathleen Sebelius 56 times;

Bill Clinton 40 times; and

Hillary Clinton 17 times.

 

Between 1998 and 2017, Barsoomian herself represented the FBI at least five times.

 

You may be saying to yourself, OK, who cares? Who cares about the

work history of this Barsoomian woman?

 

Apparently someone does, because someone out there cares so much that they’ve “purged” all Barsoomian court documents for her Clinton representation in Hamburg vs. Clinton in 1998 and its appeal in 1999 from the DC District and Appeals Court dockets (?). [Blog Editor: Honestly, the only reference to a Barsoomian document purge of any sort are the many versions (and there are many) of this chain email. Ergo, either the statement is accurate OR no such purge ever took place.]

 

Someone out there cares so much that the internet has been “purged” of all information pertaining to Barsoomian. [Blog Editor: This statement is blatantly false or I would not be able what I have discovered my own to this point.]

 

Historically, this indicates that the individual is a protected CIA operative. [Blog Editor: Unsubstantiated speculation undoubtedly based on the CIA’s reputation] Additionally, Lisa Barsoomian has specialized in opposing Freedom of Information Act requests on behalf of the intelligence community. [Blog Editor: I found this relating to Barsoomian and FOIA:

 

‘In 2000, she represented the FBI in a case that involved “a Freedom of Information Act request submitted by the Electronic Privacy Information Center,” according to Wired. An ABC News story stated: “Government lawyer Lisa Barsoomian contended the group’s request for a court order was moot because the FBI had agreed to expedite its review.”

 

She was also involved in a Freedom of Information case involving a prisoner.’ (Lisa Barsoomian, Rod Rosenstein’s Wife: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know; By Jessica McBride; Heavy.com; Updated 7/9/18 2:52pm)

 

From what I could discover on the fly about Lisa Barsoomian and FOIA is she overwhelming represented the FBI. The only specific FOIA/CIA/Barsoomian action I found are primarily quotes of this chain email without naming the specific reference requested.]

 

And, although Barsoomian has been involved in hundreds of cases representing the DC Office of the US Attorney, her email address is Lisa Barsoomian at NIH gov. The NIH stands for National Institutes of Health.

 

This is a tactic routinely used by the CIA to protect an operative by using another government organization to shield their activities. Blog Editor: Again, unsubstantiated speculation.]

 

It’s a cover, so big deal right? I mean what does one more attorney with ties to the US intelligence community really matter?

 

It deals with Trump and his recent tariffs on Chinese steel and aluminum imports, the border wall, DACA, everything coming out of California, the Uni-party unrelenting opposition to President Trump, the Clapper leaks, the Comey leaks, Attorney General Jeff Sessions recusal and subsequent 14-month nap with occasional forays into the marijuana legalization mix …. and last but not least Mueller’s never-ending investigation into collusion between the Trump team and the Russians.

 

Why does Barsoomian, CIA operative, merit any mention?

 

BECAUSE….

 

She is Assistant Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s WIFE….That’s why!!

 

GET THIS INFORMATION OUT TO EVERYONE YOU CAN.

 

Jaw dropping, shocking and extremely sad that this info has never been exposed-

 

DO YOUR PART IN PLASTERING THIS INFORMATION EVERYWHERE …. it’s bullet proof and cannot be blown off by leftists … and will convince many not paying attention that we have a soft coup happening now..

 

GLP powers activate …. get this all over the net and email
Boxes. [Blog Editor: Being a Baby-Boomer, I have no idea what “GLP” means. I’m guessing it has to do with getting the info out far and wide.]
