I watched Sara Carter report on Hannity last night on issue that Bruce Ohr was more involved in the Steele Dossier frame-up of President Trump than previously thought. How does she know? Newly discovered documents of Ohr notes indicating earlier dates on Steele Dossier collaboration between Bruce Ohr (DOJ), Strzok and other FBI cadres as well as the fired Christopher Steele. Ohr was acting as a go-between betwixt Steele and the FBI, even though Steele had been fired.

Long after being fired from the FBI’s Russia probe, UK spy Christopher Steele emailed with Bruce Ohr in August 2017 about being reinstated to help Mueller. Steele was paid by Fusion GPS to work for Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the DNC to dig up Russian dirt on Trump. In November 2016, Steele was deemed “not suitable” to serve as an FBI informer after being caught leaking information to the pro-Clinton media.

BREAKING: Bruce Ohr Docs Raise Serious Questions

  • New docs were written by Ohr roughly 2 weeks after the 2016 presidential election

 

  • Notes mention Strzok & Page and have many lawmakers and investigators concerned

 

  • Separate docs show FBI had backchannel investigation which they never disclosed to FISC

 

Strzok & Ohr

 

A law enforcement sensitive document written by senior Justice Department official, Bruce Ohr, is raising serious concerns amongst congressional investigators regarding testimony provided to Congress on the involvement of FBI special agents in the probe into the Trump campaign and its alleged Russian ties.

 

Nov. 21, 2016, the handwritten document lists former FBI Special Agent Peter Strzok, his paramour FBI Attorney Lisa Page and Special Agent Joe Pientka (who along with Strzok interviewed former National Security Advisor Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn).

 

Strzok, who was the lead investigator in the FBI’s investigation into Trump, was removed last August from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation after the DOJ’s Inspector General discovered a barrage of anti-Trump text messages between him and Page. Page, who was working as the general counsel for now fired Deputy Attorney General Andrew McCabe, is no longer with the FBI.

 

Page’s name on Ohr’s notes raises a number of questions, particularly since she would not have normally been involved in national security investigations, a congressional investigator said. It also raises a number of questions regarding McCabe’s possible involvement and whether was he authorizing any meetings or communications with Ohr in regard to the Trump investigation, the investigators noted.

 

Ohr was demoted twice by the Justice Department for his failure to disclose that his wife, Nellie Ohr, worked for the now-embattled research firm Fusion GPS, which produced the infamous anti-Trump dossier. The new document is only one in a series of notes commemorating his communications with dossier author, Christopher Steele, which have been obtained by the congressional oversight committees investigating the FBI’s handling of the Trump Russia investigation.

 

Bruce Ohr

 

Another congressional investigator told SaraACarter.com that the notes written by Ohr raise “concerns of previously undisclosed communications with the FBI and Ohr and how extensive these communications were. It also raises concerns about testimony given by Lisa Page, who downplayed her interactions with Ohr in her (July 13) testimony to Congress.”

 

The notes at the bottom of the memo state, in sloppy writing, “no prosecution yet, pushing ahead on M case,” in reference to Paul Manafort, who is now facing years old charges on financial crimes and money laundering, according to congressional investigators.

 

Ohr also stated, “may go back to Chris,” in reference to Christopher Steele.

 

“The more we learn about this, the more it seems like Bruce Ohr was a really key figure in this circle comprising those both outside and inside the government who were colluding with each other to manufacture the Trump-Russia investigation,” said a third congressional staffer involved in the Russia investigations.

 

Separate Documents Reveal FBI’s Backchannel Investigation Conducted by Ohr

 

In a separate, but related matter, a slew of documents and emails obtained by congressional investigators also shows that the FBI failed to disclose to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) that it had a backchannel investigation with senior Obama Justice Department officials that continued to use and obtain information from Steele.

 

Steele was a central figure in the separate investigation being conducted by Ohr and Fusion GPS. According to the documents, Ohr and his wife were working closely with Steele and channeling information to the FBI.

 

The new onslaught of documents obtained by the oversight committees seems to show a pattern, considering the FBI also failed to disclose important information in its FISC warrant application to spy on short-term Trump campaign volunteer, Carter Page.

 

On Monday, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes revealed that Obama’s FBI failed to include “exculpatory evidence” in its FISA application against Page. If proven true, this violation has enormous implications, according to a congressional source with knowledge of the investigation.

“Ohr was basically allowing himself to be run as a source so the FBI could communicate with Steele even after they fired him,” said another congressional source who maintains that the exculpatory evidence should have been included in the application and the court should have been aware.

Obama Administration Treasonous Acts


John R. Houk

The Dems, Leftist MSM and Never Trumpers  have vastly different interpretation of the Carter Page FISA warrant than Conservatives, Conservative Media and Pro-Trumpers. Here is a conclusion from the considered Conservative think tank Foreign Policy Research Institute (FPRI):

 

What clearly is not shown in the Page FISA applications is any sustenance for the conspiratorial views of untoward political bias that are the central theme of the Nunes memo. Then, again, this is not particularly surprising given that Nunes, in an interview with Fox News in February, admitted that he himself had not read the Page FISA application (presumably, any of them)—a distancing from the facts that he has continued to employ even as he hectors the Department of Justice about its cooperation in supplying highly sensitive materials like these FISA applications to the House Intelligence Committee for purposes that seem to have virtually nothing to do with legitimate congressional oversight.[8] While the Page FISA applications, with all their redactions, surely cannot answer every question about the investigative activities that led to the decision to seek FISA authorization to surveil Carter Page, there seems enough in these 412 pages to consign to the nearest dumpster the Nunes Memo and its misguided allegations of political bias. (The Carter Page FISA Applications: Much Risk to FISA, Little New Insight, But a Rebuff to the Nunes Narrative; By George W. Croner; FPRI; 7/23/18)

 

If Mr. Croner has a Conservative perspective, certainly suggests he is a Never Trumper. If you read the redacted FISA Warrant and understand who the cryptic disguised identities are, then you understand Croner’s conclusion is propagandized at worst or blindly self-deluded at best.

 

Disguised Identities Identified in FISA Warrant:

 

  • Candidate #1 = Donald Trump

 

  • Candidate #2 = Crooked Hillary

 

  • Political Party #1 = GOP

 

  • Political Party #2 = Dems

 

  • Source #1 = Christopher Steele

 

  • Other Cryptic Identities not hard to figure:

 

A) FISA warrant application supports Nunes memo; By Byron York; Washington Examiner; 7/22/18)

 

B) 10 Key Takeaways From The Released FISA Warrants Against Carter Page; By Margot Cleveland; The Federalist; 7/23/18

 

The above should greatly aid you who is lying to the American public and who is telling the truth about the Page FISA Warrant.

 

If you understand that a clandestine goal is behind this FISA  Warrant to politically prevent the election of Donald Trump to POTUS or if Trump was elected, then to fabricate evidence for impeachment proceedings in the House. This is essentially a cabalistic coup against the Office of President of the United States.

 

I do believe such operations falls under the category if High Crimes and Misdemeanors. This is the measuring line for treason according to the U.S. Constitution.

 

Text of Article 3, Section 3:

 

Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.

The Congress shall have Power to declare the Punishment of Treason, but no Attainder of Treason shall work Corruption of Blood, or Forfeiture except during the Life of the Person attainted. (UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION – ARTICLE 3, SECTION 3; Constitutional Law Reporter)

 

The ‘Travis Translation’ of Article 3, Section 3:

 

Treason, or betraying the United States, is making war against the United States, or being loyal to an enemy of the United States, or giving that enemy help or comfort. Nobody can be found guilty of treason unless two people describe the same obvious act of treason in open court, or unless the accused person says in open court that she/he did it.

Congress decides how to punish treason. If someone is guilty of treason, their family cannot be punished. The disgrace of the traitor, and any fines they owe, will go with them to their death, but not past that. (Ibid.)

 

Friends, a coup is making war against the United States.

 

The next question then is: Who has been involved in utilizing fabricated evidence to prevent the election of the Chief Executive of the U.S. government and/or fabricating evidence or knowingly use fabricated evidence to impeach a sitting President?

 

John Brennan Traitor

 

A recent post showed that John Brennan’s political bias and baseless accusations of treason against President Trump speculates Brennan is a traitor – NOT Trump.

 

It is coming out Brennan was highly influential in pushing the Steele Dossier as fact rather than a fabrication lies spun by Christopher Steele who indicated his sources were Russian.

 

Last week, former U.S. attorney Joe diGenova told the Fox News Channel’s Sean Hannity Brennan is responsible for the sharing of false information about Trump and Russia with American intelligence agencies.

 

Hannity said he thinks Brennan knew all about the Democrat-funded “dossier” of unproven claims about Trump that was used to obtain a warrant to spy on the Trump campaign and helped prompt the special counsel investigation.

 

“I look at a guy like Brennan, it happened on his watch, I think he probably knew all about the dossier. His involvement in this is going to be very interesting,” Hannity said. “Do we really want to live in a country where the Senate leader on the Democratic side says you better not ever say anything bad about the Intel community?”

 

DiGenova responded: “Sean, I want to talk about two people. We only have so much time — John Brennan and Leon Panetta. John Brennan is a traitor and I will tell you why. He is the real traitor. What he did and what he has had recently about the president of the United States is despicable.”

 

The former U.S. attorney said Brennan “is personally responsible for the leaking of unmasked information, he was responsible for the sharing of false information to U.S. intelligence sources to get FISA warrants.”

 

“He is personally responsible for the sharing of false information with American intelligence agencies, and he – I challenge him to a debate at the National Press Club for one hour, two hours, three hours about his role in the entire pre-election.”

 

 

Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino said Brennan’s testimony that he didn’t know who commissioned the dossier isn’t plausible because “the CIA has a central role in the verification of foreign assets and information we get from foreign assets.”

 

And after Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., accused the CIA of spying on members of the Senate by hacking into computers used by her intelligence committee’s staffers, Brennan said, “Let me assure you the CIA was in no way spying on [the committee] or the Senate.”

 

However, a CIA inspector general’s report found the CIA was spying on the Senate, and Brennan was forced to privately apologize to intelligence committee chairmen. (BRENNAN, COMEY, CLAPPER SECURITY CLEARANCES UNDER REVIEW; By BOB UNRUH; WND; 7/23/18)

 

Crooked Hillary Traitor

 

There have been all sorts of information flying around about Spygate since the beginning of 2018, but this release, though redacted, clears several things up. Check out the last page, it makes it clear that that Spygate’s trail leads right back to Hillary Clinton.  (5 Takeaways From FISA Document Release; By TTN Staff; Trump Train News; 7/23/18)

 

And here:

 

Hillary Clinton personally authorized her campaign chairman, John Podesta, to launch the controversial Donald Trump-Russian dossier project, according to a senior Clinton campaign strategist who worked for Hillary in both her 2008 and 2016 presidential bids.

 

“Hillary approved Podesta’s decision to pay for the dossier by funneling campaign funds through Marc Elias,” the strategist said, referring to the lawyer who represented both the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee.

 

“The dossier was delivered to the Clinton campaign by [the opposition research firm] Fusion GPS in the summer of 2016, and Hillary read it and was thrilled by its salacious content,” the strategist continued.

 

“She bragged about it so openly that many of the people in her Brooklyn campaign headquarters were aware of the existence of the dossier. Hillary referred to it as her ‘secret weapon’ that would ‘blow Trump out of the water.’” (The Hillary Dossier Connection; By Edward Klein; Breitbart; 11/8/17)

 

And more:

 

We know that the Steele dossier was paid for by Hillary and the DNC.  We know that Steele supposedly relied on paid Russian informants.  We know that Comey testified in Congress on June 6, 2017 that the dossier was unverified.

 

Now we learn that Hillary’s boys, Blumenthal and Shearer, supplied information to Steele for his dossier.

 

In addition to paying for the Steele dossier, Hillary helped write it.

 

Before we knew that Hillary helped write the dossier, it was clear that the dossier was insufficient to establish probable cause for the FISA warrants.  Comey testified that the dossier was unverified, relied on paid Russian informants, and the warrant applications did not state that Hillary and the DNC paid Steele.

 

It was bad enough that Hillary and the DNC paid Steele.  But the FISA warrants do not disclose that Hillary’s boys contributed information to Steele for his dossier. (Hillary’s boys helped Steele write the dossier; By J. Marsolo; American Thinker; 2/9/18)

 

Barack Hussein Obama Traitor:

 

Limbaugh began by reading a Yahoo News story from June 20: “Obama cyber chief confirms ‘stand down’ order against Russian cyber-attacks in summer 2016 — The Obama White House’s chief cyber official testified Wednesday that proposals he was developing to counter Russia’s attack on the U.S. presidential election were put on a ‘back burner’ after he was ordered to ‘stand down’ his efforts in the summer of 2016.”

 

 

“They knew the Russians were hacking. They knew Russians were engaging in cyber warfare, and the Obama White House chief cyber official testified that he was told to stand down. So Obama didn’t do anything about the Russians! Obama was telling everybody the Russians could not hack the presidential election. Obama was telling people that it was too massive and widespread and intricate, it couldn’t be done.”

 

 

… Why did Obama want his own administration to stand down and not do anything? Could we maybe use the word ‘treasonous’? That Obama was willing to stand down and stand aside and let the Russians continue meddling and tampering and whatever?

 

“All of this that we’re talking about happened before Trump was even president. All of this happened before Trump — in many cases — even became a candidate,” he noted. “Somehow, all of this is Donald Trump’s fault, not standing up to the Russians. Here are two left-wing socialist reporters, David Corn and Michael Isikoff, writing that Obama told his cyber security people to ‘stand down’ in the face of Russian cyberattacks in 2016. (Limbaugh Digs Up Obama Dirt, Uses It To Destroy Establishment Media’s Russia Narrative; By CILLIAN ZEAL; Conservative Tribune by WJ; 7/23/18 8:50AM)

 

Obama’s DNI head James Clapper was on CNN recently claiming his boss Comrade Obama was behind the cabal trying to set up Trump before and after Election 2016:

 

President Obama’s former Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, came clean on CNN and stated that former President Obama was behind spying on President Trump!

 

James Clapper was on CNN yesterday and he stated that Obama was behind spying on President Trump and all the corrupt and criminal actions involving the government, including the Mueller investigation –

 

According to Obama’s former spy chief, James Clapper, who appeared on CNN to say it was Obama who set the entire Russia witch-hunt into motion by tasking the intelligence community assessment.

 

 

(Obama’s Former Director of National Intelligence Says Obama Behind Entire Russia Witch Hunt! By Joe Hoft; Gateway Pundit; 7/22/18)

 

President Trump turned the Leftist press and the Dems inside out by letting us know that several Obamanite high level comrades are being considered to have their Security Clearance stripped away. The implication is these Obamanites may be a part of the conspiracy cabal trying to pull this treasonous coup against the Trump Administration:

 

President Trump is looking into revoking the security clearances of several top Obama-era intelligence and law enforcement officials, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said Monday, accusing them of having “politicized” or “monetized” their public service.

 

 

Sanders said Trump is also looking into the clearances for other former officials and Trump critics, including former FBI Director James Comey; former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe; former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper; former National Security Adviser Susan Rice and former CIA Director Michael Hayden (who also worked under President George W. Bush).

 

… (Trump looking into revoking security clearances for Brennan, other top Obama officials; By Brooke Singman; Fox News; 7/23/18)

 

Those not of the Executive Branch swamp undoubtedly smell a treasonous coup among those who might have their Security Clearance stripped even if such is more symbolic than actionable.

 

There former and current Obama holdovers in the DOJ and FBI whose actions indicate the promotion of the fake Steele Dossier and the Dossier’s use to get a FISA Warrant to spy on the Trump campaign by making spy accusations against Carter Page.

THE GLOVES ARE OFF=> President Trump Calls For Mueller’s “Discredited” Witch Hunt to End After Carter Page FISA Docs Released

 

By Cristina Laila

July 23, 2018

Gateway Pundit

 

On Monday morning, President Trump renewed his calls for the Mueller witch hunt to end after the Carter Page FISA docs confirmed what we knew to be true — the entire Russian collusion hoax was made up and funded by Hillary Clinton and executed by Obama’s corrupt DOJ and FBI.

 

President Trump did not hold back. He went after Crooked Hillary, Obama’s gang, the corrupt FBI/DOJ and Mueller.

 

Trump tweeted: So we now find out that it was indeed the unverified and Fake Dirty Dossier, that was paid for by Crooked Hillary Clinton and the DNC, that was knowingly & falsely submitted to FISA and which was responsible for starting the totally conflicted and discredited Mueller Witch Hunt!

 

 

President Trump then quoted fearless warrior, President of Judicial Watch Tom Fitton.

 

Trump tweeted: “It was classified to cover up misconduct by the FBI and the Justice Department in misleading the Court by using this Dossier in a dishonest way to gain a warrant to target the Trump Team. This is a Clinton Campaign document. It was a fraud and a hoax designed to target Trump….

 

 

Round two….and the DOJ, FBI and Obama Gang need to be held to account. Source #1 was the major source. Avoided talking about it being the Clinton campaign behind it. Misled the Court to provide a pretext to SPY on the Trump Team. Not about Carter Page..was all about getting Trump…..

 

 

In his final tweet, the President called for the Mueller’s “discredited” witch hunt to be shut down.

 

Trump tweeted: …..”Carter Page wasn’t a spy, wasn’t an agent of the Russians – he would have cooperated with the FBI. It was a fraud and a hoax designed to target Trump.” Tom Fitton @JudicialWatch A disgrace to America. They should drop the discredited Mueller Witch Hunt now!

 

 

Thanks to Judicial Watch, the Carter Page FISA docs were released over the weekend.

 

Although the documents were dishonestly and heavily redacted, they confirm the FBI and DOJ misled the FISA courts.

 

Obama’s Deep State FBI and DOJ obtained a FISA warrant on Carter Page in October of 2016 and three subsequent renewals in order to spy on Trump’s campaign and transition team.

 

Comey, Rosenstein, McCabe and Sally Yates all signed the FISA applications even though Hillary’s fraudulent Russia dossier was used as a pretext to obtain the warrants.

 

The docs also reveal the FBI used anti-Trump media reports from liberal news sites in order to obtain the Carter Page FISA warrants.

 

President of Judicial Watch, Tom Fitton called the circular evidence of Hillary’s phony dossier leaked to the media–then media articles citing the dossier in turn being used to obtain a FISA warrant a “self-licking ice cream cone.”

 

 

Both Mueller and Rosenstein need to be fired and prosecuted. Rosenstein signed off on the FISA applications knowing Hillary’s phony dossier was used as evidence to obtain a FISA warrant and Mueller used Hillary’s dossier as evidence to hunt down Trump’s associates.

WSJ: Was John Brennan The One Who Actually Engaged In “Treason”?


Tim Brown uses an article by the Wall Street Journal’s Kimberley Strassel to extrapolate the notion former CIA Director John Brennan (See Also HERE) was an Obamunist traitor. The notion arises because Brennan accused President Trump of Treason for merely meeting with Putin in Helsinki.

WSJ: Was John Brennan The One Who Actually Engaged In “Treason”?

When men like John Brennan point their finger at others and cry “treason,” they are attempting to pin the very crime they are guilty of on someone else.

 

By TIM BROWN

JULY 21, 2018

Freedom Outpost

 

Well, Sebastian Gorka has been upfront that former Obama CIA Director John Brennan is both a “Communist” and a “traitor.”  Now, it appears that the Wall Street Journal’s Kimberley Strassel may be following that path without coming right out and saying it.

 

In a recent column, Strassel seems to take issue with Brennan’s tweets from earlier this week when he tore into President Donald Trump over his actions in Helsinki with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

 

“Donald Trump’s press conference performance in Helsinki rises to & exceeds the threshold of ‘high crimes & misdemeanors,’” tweeted Brennan.

 

“It was nothing short of treasonous,” added Brennan, who worked for what could be argued was the most treasonous person to sit in the Oval Office.  “Not only were Trump’s comments imbecilic, he is wholly in the pocket of Putin. Republican Patriots: Where are you???”

 

 

According to Ms. Strassel, “This is rough stuff, even for an Obama partisan.”

 

She then wrote:

 

That’s what Mr. Brennan is—a partisan—and it is why his role in the 2016 scandal is in some ways more concerning than the FBI’s. Mr. Comey stands accused of flouting the rules, breaking the chain of command, abusing investigatory powers. Yet it seems far likelier that the FBI’s Trump investigation was a function of arrogance and overconfidence than some partisan plot. No such case can be made for Mr. Brennan. Before his nomination as CIA director, he served as a close Obama adviser. And the record shows he went on to use his position—as head of the most powerful spy agency in the world—to assist Hillary Clinton’s campaign (and keep his job).

 

Mr. Brennan has taken credit for launching the Trump investigation. At a House Intelligence Committee hearing in May 2017, he explained that he became “aware of intelligence and information about contacts between Russian officials and U.S. persons.” The CIA can’t investigate U.S. citizens, but he made sure that “every information and bit of intelligence” was “shared with the bureau,” meaning the FBI. This information, he said, “served as the basis for the FBI investigation.” My sources suggest Mr. Brennan was overstating his initial role, but either way, by his own testimony, he as an Obama-Clinton partisan was pushing information to the FBI and pressuring it to act.

 

More notable, Mr. Brennan then took the lead on shaping the narrative that Russia was interfering in the election specifically to help Mr. Trump—which quickly evolved into the Trump-collusion narrative. Team Clinton was eager to make the claim, especially in light of the Democratic National Committee server hack. Numerous reports show Mr. Brennan aggressively pushing the same line internally. Their problem was that as of July 2016 even then-Director of National Intelligence James Clapper didn’t buy it. He publicly refused to say who was responsible for the hack, or ascribe motivation. Mr. Brennan also couldn’t get the FBI to sign on to the view; the bureau continued to believe Russian cyberattacks were aimed at disrupting the U.S. political system generally, not aiding Mr. Trump.

 

Think about that just a moment because on Saturday I reported on the fact that sources have claimed that former FBI attorney Lisa Page has begun to testify under oath that there was absolutely no basis for the Mueller investigation into Trump.  In that report, I referenced John Solomon’s claim that:

 

For any American who wants an answer sooner, there are just five words, among the thousands of suggestive texts Page and Strzok exchanged, that you should read.

 

That passage was transmitted on May 19, 2017. “There’s no big there there,” Strzok texted.

 

The date of the text long has intrigued investigators: It is two days after Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein named special counsel Robert Mueller to oversee an investigation into alleged collusion between Trump and the Russia campaign.

 

Since the text was turned over to Congress, investigators wondered whether it referred to the evidence against the Trump campaign.

 

This month, they finally got the chance to ask. Strzok declined to say — but Page, during a closed-door interview with lawmakers, confirmed in the most pained and contorted way that the message in fact referred to the quality of the Russia case, according to multiple eyewitnesses.

 

The admission is deeply consequential. It means Rosenstein unleashed the most awesome powers of a special counsel to investigate an allegation that the key FBI officials, driving the investigation for 10 months beforehand, did not think was “there.”

 

Strassel continues:

 

The CIA director couldn’t himself go public with his Clinton spin—he lacked the support of the intelligence community and had to be careful not to be seen interfering in U.S. politics. So what to do? He called Harry Reid. In a late August briefing, he told the Senate minority leader that Russia was trying to help Mr. Trump win the election, and that Trump advisers might be colluding with Russia. (Two years later, no public evidence has emerged to support such a claim.)

 

But the truth was irrelevant. On cue, within a few days of the briefing, Mr. Reid wrote a letter to Mr. Comey, which of course immediately became public. “The evidence of a direct connection between the Russian government and Donald Trump’s presidential campaign continues to mount,” wrote Mr. Reid, going on to float Team Clinton’s Russians-are-helping-Trump theory. Mr. Reid publicly divulged at least one of the allegations contained in the infamous Steele dossier, insisting that the FBI use “every resource available to investigate this matter.”

 

The Reid letter marked the first official blast of the Brennan-Clinton collusion narrative into the open. Clinton opposition-research firm Fusion GPS followed up by briefing its media allies about the dossier it had dropped off at the FBI. On Sept. 23, Yahoo News’s Michael Isikoff ran the headline: “U.S. intel officials probe ties between Trump adviser and Kremlin.” Voilà. Not only was the collusion narrative out there, but so was evidence that the FBI was investigating.

 

In their recent book “Russian Roulette,” Mr. Isikoff and David Corn say even Mr. Reid believed Mr. Brennan had an “ulterior motive” with the briefing, and “concluded the CIA chief believed the public needed to know about the Russia operation, including the information about the possible links to the Trump campaign.” (Brennan allies have denied his aim was to leak damaging information.)

 

Clinton supporters have a plausible case that Mr. Comey’s late-October announcement that the FBI had reopened its investigation into the candidate affected the election. But Trump supporters have a claim that the public outing of the collusion narrative and FBI investigation took a toll on their candidate. Politics was at the center of that outing, and Mr. Brennan was a ringmaster. Remember that when reading his next “treason” tweet.

 

Indeed, remember it.  Brennan was Obama’s Muslim convert for jihad here in the US.

 

When men like John Brennan point their finger at others and cry “treason,” they are attempting to pin the very crime they are guilty of on someone else.  Ms. Strassel, while not being as forthright as Gorka about Brennan’s treason, nevertheless, seems to be saying just that in what she wrote.  America would do well to listen and bring justice to bear upon this traitor and the traitors surrounding him, but I have my doubts that anyone in this life will actually hold him accountable.

Former CIA Agent Kevin Shipp: ‘Indictments Are Coming…Trump Cannot Be Bribed’


Kevin Shipp is a former CIA Officer. Why should you care? I found an interview in which Shipp is confidant an indictment is in the works that implicates Crooked Hillary and others.

 

As a Conservative who believes the Clintons have escaped justice for decades, this welcome news. As a person that observed all elitist Dems skate away from even the most obvious crimes, I’ll believe it when I see it.

 

And yet Shipp’s credentials lend some hope he is correct:

 

Kevin Shipp is a retired CIA spook and whistleblower. He has exposed the US deep state and charged the CIA with systematically use of unconstitutional and illegal measures to terrorise employees to prevent them from becoming whistleblowers. He has also charged that “Hillary Clinton was running and is running a global financial criminal syndicate. She was using these secret servers to conduct Clinton financial money laundering business.”[1]

 

Background

 

Shipp was born in Laramie, Wyoming, but his family moved to Falls Church, Virginia, where he has spent most of his subsequent life. He studied at Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, Virginia, where studied biology. Later he also obtained a master’s degree in forensic psycho physiology at the Department of Defense Academy for Credibility Assessment.[citation needed]

 

Career

 

“Kevin Shipp, former CIA Officer and Anti Terrorism expert, held several high level positions in the CIA. He was assigned as a protective agent for the Director of Central Intelligence, a counterintelligence investigator, team leader protecting sensitive CIA assets from assassination, manager of high risk Counter Terrorism Center protective operations, lead instructor for members of allied governments, internal staff security investigator and a polygraph examiner tasked with protecting the CIA from foreign agent penetration. He is the recipient of two CIA Meritorious Unit Citations, three Exceptional Performance Awards and a Medallion for overseas covert operations. Shipp also supervised the Department of State Anti Terrorism Assistance program and managed the protective detail assigned to the president of Afghanistan following the US invasion.”[2][3]

Former CIA Agent Kevin Shipp: ‘Indictments Are Coming…Trump Cannot Be Bribed’

Shipp says that what Hillary Clinton did with her charity and Uranium One while she was Secretary of State was a crime for the history books.  Shipp explains, “Hillary Clinton used this to launder money in foreign banks so it wasn’t subject to U.S. laws, congressional subpoenas, or FOIA demands for the evidence.  This was done to launder this money globally into the Clinton Foundation so the U.S. government could not examine it at all.”

++++++

Whistleblower and former CIA officer Kevin Shipp stated clearly that indictments are coming for Hillary Clinton and the deep state because Donald Trump cannot be bribed.  In an interview with USA Watchdog‘s Greg Hunter, Shipp says this deep state espionage will eventually be exposed to the public.

 

During his discussion with Hunter, Shipp says that what Hillary Clinton did with her charity and Uranium One while she was Secretary of State was a crime for the history books.  Shipp explains, “Hillary Clinton used this to launder money in foreign banks so it wasn’t subject to U.S. laws, congressional subpoenas, or FOIA demands for the evidence.  This was done to launder this money globally into the Clinton Foundation so the U.S. government could not examine it at all.”

How did Hillary Clinton get away with obvious crime with her unprotected server and the shady Uranium One deal? Shipp says, “The most bizarre thing is the people who protected her from clear felonious activity and violations of the Espionage Act. James Clapper, Director of National Intelligence, was protecting her and leaking things to the media and lying. You had John Brennan, Director of the CIA, protecting her by starting a false investigation (on Trump) and stirring things up with this (false/unverified) dossier. You had James Comey, Director of the FBI, protecting her. . . . Then, you’ve got Peter Strzok protecting her, and now it appears the United Kingdom GCHQ was using NSA information to target Donald Trump and protect Hillary Clinton. You have to ask yourself READ THE REST]

 

“Obviously [Hillary’s]  not stupid, she is diabolical,” says Shipp of Hillary Clinton’s decision to have an unsecured server as Secretary of State. “She knew darn well what she was doing…the Clinton Foundation is a global crime syndicate.”

 

Shipp continued saying, “we just found out recently that…at least 30,000 of her emails went to a foreign entity that was not on any of the distribution lists…they’re trying to figure out who that is now…this reeks of espionage to me.”

 

“The most bizarre thing is the people who protected her from clear felonious activity and violations of the Espionage Act.  James Clapper, Director of National Intelligence, was protecting her and leaking things to the media and lying.  You had John Brennan, Director of the CIA, protecting her by starting a false investigation (on Trump) and stirring things up with this (false/unverified) dossier.  You had James Comey, Director of the FBI, protecting her. . . . Then, you’ve got Peter Strzok protecting her, and now it appears the United Kingdom GCHQ was using NSA information to target Donald Trump and protect Hillary Clinton.  You have to ask yourself what kind of power or connections does this woman have to get all of these members of the Deep State, Shadow Government to risk their own criminal penalties to protect her and try to get her elected?  That is the Shadow Government.  That is the Deep State.  That is what is so chilling about this whole thing. . . . This is deep.  This is dark.  This is as dark as it gets, and this is the biggest espionage case involving government officials in the history of this country.” -Kevin Shipp

 

Hunter then brings up the concerns most Americans have: no one will go to jail because the government will never implicate themselves. In response, Shipp points out that, this time, it will not be business as usual for the “Deep State and Shadow Government.”  It is possible that the people involved in this massive espionage case will charges. They are going to be brought to justice because Shipp says, “indictments are coming because of Donald Trump coming into the White House from the outside.  Trump cannot be bribed.

True Collusion: Obama’s FBI, DOJ & CIA


John R. Houk, Editor

Posted July 8, 2018

Even as the Mainstream Media (MSM) continues to harangue the Trump Administration over Crooked Hillary’s loss to President Trump, more and more documented information is rising to the top like scum purified out of metal. Emails and memos substantiate just how corrupt the Obama Administration’s FBI, DOJ, CIA, etc. leadership indeed was in creating ex nihilo fake evidence of Trump wrongdoing with Russian help.

 

Below are three documented stories of where the actual collusion originated and guess what? TRUMP IS NOT THE CULPRIT!

Bombshell: Even More Evidence of FBI anti-Trump Bias Uncovered!

 

By Onan Coca

July 7, 2018

Eagle Rising

 

FBI-DOJ Corruption

 

At some point, some rational journalist is going to have to start openly wondering if they’ve been wrong about this FBI/DOJ/Mueller stuff all along, won’t they?

 

The overwhelming majority of agents working for the FBI/DOJ are wonderful, hard-working professionals, which begs the question, how did so many anti-Trump, pro-Hillary Clinton agents get in on the Clinton investigation, the Russia investigation, and the Mueller investigation?

 

The material that has leaked out over the last few months has proven that at least 4-5 of the agents had a definite anti-Trump animus and that animus was bad enough that Mueller canned them from his investigation.

 

Now, we’re learning that there is even more evidence of the intelligence community working against Trump for partisan reasons.

 

Here’s what the Hill found in recently uncovered memos:

 

Multiple reviews of whether FBI agents’ political bias affected the Russia-Trump collusion case remain in their infancy, but investigators already have unearthed troubling internal communications long withheld from public view.

 

We already know from FBI counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok’s now-infamous text messages with his fellow agent and reported lover, Lisa Page, that Strzok — the man driving that Russia collusion investigation — disdained Donald Trump and expressed willingness to use his law enforcement powers to “stop” the Republican from becoming president.

 

The question that lingers, unanswered: Did those sentiments affect official actions?

 

Memos the FBI is now producing to the Department of Justice (DOJ) inspector general and multiple Senate and House committees offer what sources involved in the production, review or investigation describe to me as “damning” or “troubling” evidence.

 

They show Strzok and his counterintelligence team rushing in the fall of 2016 to find “derogatory” information from informants or a “pretext” to accelerate the probe and get a surveillance warrant on figures tied to the future president.

 

The memos prove that Strzok and his team railroaded Trump associate Carter Page (who has still never been accused of any kind of wrongdoing) and used him as a scapegoat to spy on the Trump campaign. Strzok’s own words in the memos damn him for his immoral tactics and obvious partisan behavior.

 

The memos also indicate that certain FBI officials were knowingly and maliciously leaking information from their investigations to Democrats in Congress and to the media.

 

These and other documents are still being disseminated to various oversight bodies in Congress, and more revelations are certain to occur.

 

Yet, now, irrefutable proof exists that agents sought to create pressure to get “derogatory” information and a “pretext” to interview people close to a future president they didn’t like.

 

Clear evidence also exists that an investigation into still-unproven collusion between a foreign power and a U.S. presidential candidate was driven less by secret information from Moscow and more by politically tainted media leaks.

 

And that means the dots between expressions of political bias and official actions just got a little more connected.

 

In response to all of the bad news, Democrat leader Adam Schiff (D-CA) has been trying to obfuscate what is really happening by attacking Republicans for being on Trump’s side.

 

Schiff has even begun mocking a few GOP Congressional leaders as ‘The Four Horsemen,” but Congressman Trey Gowdy (R-SC) isn’t worried about anything Schiff has to say. In fact, to hear Gowdy talk about it… nobody in the GOP “gives a damn” about what Schiff thinks.

 

From RCP:

 

“Let me tell you this about Adam,” Gowdy began. “Adam’s had a terrible last couple of years. He wanted to be the attorney general under Hillary Clinton and no one in the country worked harder to protect her than Adam Schiff.”

 

“He wanted to be the head of the CIA. He wanted to run for California and the run for Senate and the People’s Republic of California, but he couldn’t win either of those seats. So, now, now, he wants to be the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee. Speaking of the apocalypse, Adam Schiff wants to be the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee,” he said.


“If you ever have — I don’t know — a couple of three months with nothing else to do, I want you to go back, Jason, and think of all the things you would not know if you had taken Adam Schiff’s advice. You wouldn’t know the whole — the spontaneous reaction to a video was a hoax in Libya. You would never have read the first Chris Stevens email. You wouldn’t know that Hillary Clinton had this unique email arrangement with herself because Adam Schiff did everything in his power to keep you from finding out,” Gowdy continued.

 

“You wouldn’t know about the dossier. You wouldn’t know who funded it. You wouldn’t know it was used in a court proceeding. You wouldn’t know about Strzok and Page. In fact, you wouldn’t even be having the show tonight. You wouldn’t be having the show about Strzok and Page if Adam Schiff had had his,” Gowdy finished.

Emails Appear To Blow a Hole in Strzok’s Statement on Page FISA

 

By CHUCK ROSS 
JULY 6, 2018 AT 3:46PM

Conservative Tribune

 

During a closed-door interview on June 27, former FBI official Peter Strzok downplayed his role in obtaining surveillance warrants to spy on former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.

 

The Daily Beast reported that Strzok, the former deputy chief of counterintelligence, claimed in the interview that he had no substantive input on drafting or securing Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrants used to spy on Page, an energy consultant who left the Trump team in September 2016.

 

Strzok also denied providing evidence for the FISAs, the first of which was granted on Oct. 21, 2016.

 

A Republican in the June 27 interview confirmed that Strzok, who oversaw the Russian investigation, denied having a direct role in the FISA process. But the Republican was also incredulous at Strzok’s suggestion that he had little to do with the spy warrants obtained against Page.

 

A new report appears to justify the Republican’s skepticism.

 

John Solomon reported on The Hill that Strzok exchanged emails with FBI attorney Lisa Page regarding the Carter Page surveillance.

 

Strzok and Lisa Page exchanged numerous anti-Trump text messages during their work on the Russia probe, which was codenamed “Crossfire Hurricane.” In one Aug. 8, 2016, message, Strzok told Page that “we’ll stop” Trump from becoming president.

 

Strzok, who was the FBI’s top investigator on Crossfire Hurricane, sent an email with the subject line “Crossfire FISA” to Lisa Page discussing a set of talking points aimed at getting then-FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe to push the Department of Justice to approve a surveillance warrant against Carter Page, according to Solomon.

 

“At a minimum, that keeps the hurry the F up pressure on him,” Strzok emailed Lisa Page on Oct. 14, 2016, according to Solomon.

 

Strzok also commented on a letter that Lisa Page sent to then-FBI Director Jim Comey offering to meet with the FBI to discuss allegations made against him in a Yahoo News article published on Sept. 23, 2016.

 

“At a minimum, the letter provides us a pretext to interview,” Strzok wrote to Lisa Page, with whom he was having an affair, on Sept. 26, 2016.

 

The Yahoo News article claimed that U.S. government officials were looking into allegations that Page met secretly in Moscow in July 2016 with two sanctioned Kremlin insiders.

 

It would later be learned that the article, written by Michael Isikoff, was based on information from Christopher Steele, the author of the dossier.

 

The dossier claimed that Page was the Trump campaign’s conduit to the Kremlin for the collusion conspiracy. Page has vehemently denied all of the allegations, and no evidence has emerged to support the Steele dossier’s claims about him.

 

The FBI and DOJ’s spy warrants relied heavily on the Steele dossier, which remains largely unverified and uncorroborated, in order to persuade a federal judge to allow spying against Carter Page. The FISA applications also cited the Isikoff article that relied on the dossier, though without disclosing that the article was derived from Steele.

 

The applications also did not disclose that the Hillary Clinton campaign and DNC had financed the dossier. A law firm for both organizations hired opposition research firm Fusion GPS, which in turn hired Steele.

 

Despite Strzok’s suggestion of an interview with Carter Page, the FBI did not meet with him until March 2017, six months after the email and two months after BuzzFeed News published the dossier. Page has questioned why the FBI waited so long to interview him.

 

The FBI used other methods to keep tabs on the former Trump aide. As The Daily Caller News Foundation first reported, an FBI informant named Stefan Halper made contact with Page during a conference at the University of Cambridge on July 11, 2016, nearly three weeks before the start of Crossfire Hurricane.

 

Halper, a veteran of three Republican presidential administrations, maintained contact with Page for over a year, until September 2017. That was the same month that the fourth and final FISA warrant against Carter Page expired.

 

Halper met with two other Trump campaign advisers, Sam Clovis and George Papadopoulos. Halper paid Papadopoulos $3,000 in September 2016 to travel to London under the guise of writing a policy paper and Mediterranean energy issues.

 

Papadopoulos has told associates that during dinner one night in London, Halper asked him about Russian efforts to steal Hillary Clinton emails.

 

Strzok’s attorney, Aitan Goelman, did not respond to an email seeking comment for this article.

Judicial Watch Sues CIA for Documents on Dossier Leak to Senator Harry Reid

 

JW Press Room

JULY 06, 2018

Judicial Watch

 

Reid Publicized Clinton-DNC Dossier Allegations Following Brennan Briefing

 

(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch announced today it filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) for records of communications with former Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) and his staff regarding the anti-Trump dossier funded by the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee (Judicial Watch v. Central Intelligence Agency (No. 1:18-cv-01502)).

 

Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid reportedly believed then-Obama CIA Director Brennan was feeding him information about alleged links between the Trump campaign and the Russian government in order to make public accusations.

 

According to “Russian Roulette,” by Yahoo! News chief investigative correspondent Michael Isikoff and David Corn, the Washington bureau chief of the left-wing Mother Jones magazine, Brennan contacted Reid on Aug. 25, 2016, to brief him on the state of Russia’s interference in the presidential campaign. Brennan briefed other members of the so-called Gang of Eight, but Reid is the only who took direct action.

 

Two days after the briefing, Reid wrote a letter to then-FBI Director James Comey asserting that “evidence of a direct connection between the Russian government and Donald Trump’s presidential campaign continues to mount.”

 

Reid called on Comey to investigate the links “thoroughly and in a timely fashion.”

 

Reid saw Brennan’s outreach as “a sign of urgency,” Isikoff and Corn wrote in the book.

 

“Reid also had the impression that Brennan had an ulterior motive. He concluded the CIA chief believed the public needed to know about the Russian operation, including the information about the possible links to the Trump campaign.”

 

According to the book, Brennan told Reid that the intelligence community had determined that the Russian government was behind the hack and leak of Democratic emails and that Russian President Vladimir Putin was behind it. Brennan also told Reid that there was evidence that Russian operatives were attempting to tamper with election results.

 

On August 27, 2016, Reid wrote a letter to Comey accusing President Trump’s campaign of colluding with the Russian government.

 

The Judicial Watch FOIA lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia after the CIA failed to respond to a February 12, 2018, FOIA request for:

 

  • All records of communications, including but not limited to letters, emails, text messages, and instant chats, between former CIA Director John Brennan and/or officials in the CIA Director’s Office on the one hand, and Senator Harry Reid and/or members of Senator Reid’s staff on the other hand, regarding, concerning or relating to the Christopher Steele “dossier” and/or alleged “collusion” between the Trump presidential campaign and Russia.

 

  • Copies of any reports, memoranda or other materials provided to Senator Reid and/or members of his staff by the CIA relating to alleged Russian “collusion” or cooperation between the Trump presidential campaign and Russia.

 

  • All materials, including briefing reports and memos, audio/video presentations, PowerPoint presentations and any other records, used by CIA Director Brennan and/or other CIA officials to brief Senator Reid and/or members of his staff on alleged “collusion” between the Trump presidential campaign and Russia.

 

  • All notes, minutes, transcripts, and audio and/or visual recordings made of any and all briefings provided by the CIA to Senator Reid and/or members of his staff regarding alleged “collusion” between the Trump presidential campaign and Russia.

 

Brennan has come under public scrutiny as one of the suspected prime movers of the “Spygate” scandal against then-candidate Trump and his team during 2015 and 2016 and later against President Trump and members of his administration.

 

Brennan himself has revealed his deep-seated animus toward President Trump and used his media platform as an MSNBC commentator to repeatedly attack the president.

 

When President Trump tweeted about FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s firing in March 2018, Brennan retweeted and responded:

 

When the full extent of your venality, moral turpitude, and political corruption becomes known, you will take your rightful place as a disgraced demagogue in the dustbin of history. You may scapegoat Andy McCabe, but you will not destroy America…America will triumph over you.

 

In response to the president’s tweet that former FBI director Comey is a “proven leaker and liar,” Brennan retweeted and responded in April 2018 that President Trump’s administration is a failing “kakistocracy.”

 

“Obama CIA Director John Brennan’s unhinged attacks on President Trump help explain the Obama administration spying abuses targeting Trump,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “The mere fact that we had to file this lawsuit shows the CIA has something to hide on Obama-era abuses and collusion with Democrats in Congress to target then-candidate Trump.”

 

Judicial Watch filed a separate FOIA lawsuit against the CIA on March 6, 2017, for records related to the investigation of former Trump National Security Advisor and retired United States Army Lieutenant General Michael Flynn’s communications with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak (Judicial Watch v. Central Intelligence Agency et al. (No.1:17-cv-00397)).

 

The National Security Agency refused to confirm or deny the existence of intelligence records about communications between Gen. Flynn and Amb. Kislyak.

No Overall Bias?


OIG Pulls a Comey in Horowitz Report

 

John R. Houk

© June 15, 2018

The Horowitz IG Report on the FBI/DOJ handling of Crooked Hillary’s email server investigation came out June 14. I have no doubt the Leftist MSM will report this underlying theme: Horowitz found no political bias.

 

I haven’t personally read the 568-page report yet, but a quick read of primarily Conservative sources commenting the report, Michael Horowitz both let’s the FBI off the hook relating bias and singles out bias of certain FBI/DOJ members. How Horowitz can generalize no overall bias and individual bias simultaneously is beyond me. I believe another instalment of Horowitz’s IG investigation is in the future.

 

Here are some salient observations that Conservative sources are observing:

 

  • Obama administration Attorney General Loretta Lynch acted improperly in not cutting short a meeting aboard an aircraft with former President Bill Clinton during the investigation of Hillary Clinton. Both Lynch and Bill Clinton denied discussing the ongoing email probe during the meeting.

 

  • The FBI improperly permitted two Clinton aides who were witnesses in the investigation to sit in on the FBI’s questioning of Clinton

 

  • Comey drafted an initial statement exonerating Clinton months before the investigation ended. FBI agents’ actions surrounding the DOJ/FBI interview of Hillary Clinton were ‘inappropriate’ and created appearance of bias

 

  • The draft statement exonerating Clinton also removed the term “gross negligence”—a condition that could have been used for prosecution—and replaced with “especially concerning.” – Comey usurped the authority of the attorney general when he announced during a July 2016 press conference that the FBI would not be recommending charges against Clinton, then the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee.

 

  • An initial assessment in the Comey draft statement saying foreign spy services were “reasonably likely” to have accessed the classified data on the Clinton server was replaced with “possible.”

 

  • FBI ethics officials “did not fully appreciate” the potential conflict of interest by former FBI Director Andrew McCabe’s wife receiving $675,288 in 2015 from Clinton associate Terry McAuliffe, then-governor of Virginia, for her political campaign for a state senate seat. McCabe became head of the email probe in early 2016.

 

  • The FBI improperly regarded a parallel investigation of Russian collusion with the Trump presidential campaign in 2016 to be more important the Clinton email probe.

 

  • New texts between FBI lovers Strzok and Page were ‘disappointing’ and cast a shadow over the integrity of the entire Clinton email probe – Strzok’s and Page’s text messages expressing pro-Clinton and anti-Trump views raised questions about whether they allowed their political leanings to interfere with their work. – The senior FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page may have had a “willingness to take official action” to hurt Donald Trump’s chances of winning the 2016 election.

 

 

  • Five unnamed FBI employees — including one lawyer who later worked on the Mueller probe — are under scrutiny for anti-Trump bias

 

  • President Obama was one of the 13 individuals with whom Hillary Clinton had direct contact using her clintonemail.com account

 

  • Despite Clinton connections, former Assistant Attorney General Peter Kadzik and former Deputy Director Andrew McCabe didn’t fully recuse themselves 

 

  • ‘Insubordinate’ Ex-FBI Director James Comey repeatedly violated policy and inaccurately described the legal situation surrounding Clinton’s emails – While Comey’s conduct was “insubordinate,” his actions and those of others in the FBI were not affected by bias.

 

  • Comey departed “clearly and dramatically” from FBI and DOJ guidelines while overseeing the Clinton investigation. Comey’s decisions “negatively impacted the perception of the FBI” and the DOJ.

 

 

These points are hardly exhaustive, but they provide a decent snapshot of political bias even though the Horowitz IG Report erroneously claims no political bias affected the FBI/DOJ investigation of the Crooked Hillary illegal private email server.

 

I don’t know if you noticed. The Horowitz IG Report sounds an awful lot just Comey going down a list of Crooked Hillary practices that any two-bit lawyer could match to U.S. Statutes violated. Violations that have had criminal prosecutions!

 

I will cross post some of Conservative sources I felt aligned more with my thoughts, but first here are a few titles that I perused through.

HUGE BREAKING NEWS: Another Lawyer Was Removed From Mueller’s Team This February Over Anti-Trump Text Messages

 

By Cristina Laila

June 14, 2018

Gateway Pundit

 

The IG report released Thursday revealed ANOTHER lawyer was removed from Mueller’s team of liberal hacks February of this year after anti-Trump text messages surfaced.

 

‘Viva Le Resistance,’ said the unidentified Trump-hating (future) Mueller lawyer in a November 2016 text message.

 

Chuck Ross of the Daily Caller reported:

 

An FBI attorney who worked on the special counsel’s Russia investigation until earlier this year sent anti-Trump text messages to a colleague, including one exclaiming: “Viva le Resistance.”

 

The attorney’s comments are revealed in a Justice Department inspector general’s report released on Thursday.

 

The lawyer is not identified, but he worked on the Hillary Clinton email investigation and was the FBI’s lead attorney on the investigation into Russian election interference. He was assigned to special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation soon after it began in May 2017 and left in late February of this year after some of his private messages were shared with the special counsel.

 

The unidentified FBI lawyer said he was “numb” just days after Trump was elected to the White House.

 

Apparently the FBI lawyer became galvanized in his effort to resist Trump, reported Chuck Ross:

 

“Is it making you rethink your commitment to the Trump administration?” one FBI lawyer wrote on Nov. 22, 2016.

 

“Hell no. Viva le resistance,” the future Mueller attorney responded.

 

According to the report, this Trump-hating FBI lawyer claimed in an interview with the Office of Inspector General he didn’t let his political feelings or beliefs impact his work on Hillary’s email investigation or the Russia probe.

 

RIGHT.

 

And Horowitz said there was no political bias at the FBI…

CNN: Strzok and Page Didn’t Attack Trump, HE Attacked Them!

 

Biggest takeaway from IG report: With all odds stacked against him by a crazed, frenzied mainstream/social media, Hollywood/Entertainment, Never Trumpers, backstabbers in his own party, an Obama-weaponized FBI, Trump was elected President

Deep State & White House

 

“We’ll stop it.”  Three now infamous little words that can never be walked back and ones that prove beyond any shadow of a doubt that the media of the day and a rogue Obama-weaponized FBI were on the same choir page during the 2016 presidential election campaign.

 

How the mighty are falling like dominoes before the very eyes of the masses—in spite of intense media backup.  The same masses that Hillary Rodham Clinton called “deplorables”  and that some unidentified FBI yob described as “mostly poor and middleclass”  members of society who voted Donald Trump.

 

“All the people who were initially voting for her would not, and were not, swayed by any decision the FBI put out,” the employee wrote. “Trump’s supporters are all poor to middle class, uneducated, lazy POS (sic) that think he will magically grant them jobs for doing nothing. They probably didn’t watch the debates, aren’t fully educated on his policies, and are stupidly wrapped up in his unmerited enthusiasm.” (Fox News, June 14. 2018)

 

All Obama’s voters were ever after, Mr. Yob, were kitchens, welfare for life and Obama phones.

 

“Despite Strzok’s extremely inappropriate texting — it’s wildly improper for someone in his position to express animus or favoritism toward a particular candidate — the inspector general found no evidence that Strzok acted on his text to Page.” (CNN, JUNE 14, 2018.)

 

No acting on his text other than turning the political world upside down, inside out and on its head.

The biggest three little words, which came in August 2016 from disgraced FBI agent, Peter Strzok, once deputy head of counterintelligence at the FBI, working on both the Trump-Russia probe and the ‘investigation’ into Hillary Clinton’s private email server, were referenced in yesterday’s massively toned down, 500-page IG report, but the biggest laugh comes a day later from Fake News Grand Central CNN:

 

“The massive report from Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz makes clear that while several FBI officials broke with bureau protocol in their handling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server during the 2016 campaign, they were not motivated by political bias against Donald Trump.” (CNN)

 

ONLY “several FBI officials “broke with bureau protocol” in their handling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server.  And they “WERE NOT” motivated by political bias against Donald Trump.”

 

Take THAT, President Trump, you paranoid, “not-MY-president, you!

The biggest reaction to the questionable IG report didn’t come from the public, media-teased for weeks before its final inelegant release—but from the media—shown as working for the same goals as Strzok and his mistress Lisa Page.

 

Unforgettable LOLs for today’s CNN headline: ‘How 7 words in the 500-page IG report give Donald Trump all the ‘deep state’ ammo he wanted’.

 

Trump had his Deep State ammo from the get-go.  Video proof exists in the hysterics, wailing and weeping of the networks’ talking heads in the wee hours of Nov. 9, 2016.

 

In their unprofessional, desperate lovers’ texts, Strzok and Page were only putting into words the collective fervent wishes of the mainstream and social media.

 

Evidence of the ill will the pair bore for Donald Trump:

 

PAGE: “[Trump’s] not ever going to become president, right? Right?!”
STRZOK: “No. No he won’t. We’ll stop it.”

 

“Even before the release of these new text messages between Page and Strzok, who were having an extramarital affair during the campaign, Trump has focused on the duo as aligned against him. (CNN)

 

“SPYGATE is in full force! Is the Mainstream Media interested yet? Big stuff!” (There’s no evidence that Strzok, Page or the broader FBI were spying on Trump’s campaign.)

 

No, they were only trying to dump it.

 

And this is richest of all: “Trump has attacked the two since, at least last December, when emails and text between Strzok and Page were released, showing that both were skeptical of Trump. (Strzok was dismissed from the special counsel probe being run by Robert Mueller in summer 2017.)

 

This meme advances the outrageous lie that Trump was “attacking” Strzok and Page, rather than them attacking him.

 

Nor was Strzok merely dismissed from the special counsel being run by Robert Mueller in the summer of 2017, he was demoted and will some day be handsomely pensioned off.

 

Page left the scene returning to the same kind of obscurity she had before becoming FBI agent Strzok’s mistress.

 

The media will be falling over backwards to keep the masses from thinking about the report’s real biggest takeaway:

 

The biggest takeaway from the IG report is this: With all odds stacked against him by a crazed and frenzied mainstream/social media, Hollywood/Entertainment Industry, Never Trumpers, backstabbers in his own party and an Obama-weaponized FBI, etc., etc., etc, Donald Trump was handily elected as President of the United States.

Strassel: ‘Don’t believe anyone who tells you Horowitz didn’t find bias. I can still hear the echoes of the howls…’

Wall Street Journal opinion columnist Kimberley Strassel took to Twitter to say what many Americans are thinking about Thursday’s release of the Department of Justice inspector general’s report, that something’s amiss because what’s in the report does not match the summary of the report.

 

In a series of tweets, Strassel began by noting the careful play on words by inspector general Michael Horowitz when he stressed that they “did not find documentary or testimonial evidence that improper considerations, including political bias, directly affected the specific investigative actions we reviewed.”

 

“Don’t believe anyone who claims Horowitz didn’t find bias,” she tweeted. “He very carefully says that he found no ‘documentary’ evidence that bias produced ‘specific investigatory decisions.”

 

Strassel notes that while no one actually put it in writing that they were politically motivated, Horowitz “in fact finds bias everywhere.”

 

And that “this same cast of characters who the IG has now found to have made a hash of the Clinton investigation” is now to be trusted working the Trump-Russia probe.

 

She also highlighted “stunning examples of incompetence,” such as former FBI director James Comey explaining that he didn’t grasp the importance of Anthony Weiner’s laptop because he wasn’t aware of Weiner being married to Clinton’s top aide, Huma Abedin.

 

 

And people dared to question President Donald Trump’s decision to fire Comey?

 

One thing is certain, the wording of the report allowed the anti-Trump media to run with headlines screaming that the IG report “found no political bias.”

 

But there’s a theory on what that was all about, as seen in a tweet from social media account The Last Refuge — that also happens to support the idea that the summary, “written post facto by administrators in FBI/DOJ leadership,” fails to correspond with what’s in the report.

 

“The ‘executive summary’ was written to protect the institutions and that’s where the media are getting ALL of their headlines,” the tweet reads. “However, the internal body, the investigative report inside, is entirely contradictory to the summary. The facts are DEVASTATING.”

 

Others commented, saying that Horowitz “pulled his punch just like Comey did with Hillary [Clinton].”

 

“I see some really damning stuff in this IG report,” tweeted social media user Brian Wilson. “But I’ll just go ahead and say it: The IG pulled his punch just like Comey did with Hillary. I’m stunned by the gathered evidence of bias … and shocked the IG doesn’t think the bias impacted the investigation.”

 

 

The liberal media has been quick to dismiss the IG’s findings, but as former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino noted, the report is “devastating.”

 

“The IG report is only a ‘nothing-burger’ to people who know nothing about the case. It’s a devastating report which will damage Obama, Comey, Hillary, Page, Strzok, and more. Read it and you’ll clearly see the troubling pieces of it,” he tweeted.

Judicial Watch Uncovers Hidden Strzok Emails in Latest Production of Clinton-Lynch Tarmac Meeting…


Judicial Watch issued a press release discovering the fix was planned ahead of time to exonerate Crooked Hillary. I can hardly wait to hear or read conclusions of the Inspector General to see if criminal actions can be executed in relation to the FBI/DOJ coverup.

Judicial Watch Uncovers Hidden Strzok Emails in Latest Production of Clinton-Lynch Tarmac Meeting Docs—Strzok Email Suggests Clinton Investigation Decision Made in April 2016

FBI Security Official Reacts to Tarmac Meeting: Job is To Protect Comey from Embarrassment

 

(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch today released 16 pages of Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) documents related to the June 2016 tarmac meeting between former Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former President Bill Clinton showing involvement of the FBI’s former Chief of Counterespionage Peter Strzok.

 

The FBI originally informedJudicial Watch they could not locate any records related to the tarmac meeting.  However, in a related FOIA lawsuit, the Justice Department located emails in which Justice Department officials communicated with the FBI and wrote that they had communicated with the FBI.  As a result, by letterdated August 10, 2017, the FBI stated, “Upon further review, we subsequently determined potentially responsive documents may exist. As a result, your [FOIA] request has been reopened …”  This is the second batch of documents the FBI produced since telling Judicial Watch they had no tarmac-related records.

 

The new documents were obtained by Judicial Watch in response to an October 2016 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of Justice  (No. 1:16-cv-02046)) filed after the Justice Department failed to comply with a July 7, 2016, FOIA request seeking:

 

  • All FD-302 forms prepared pursuant to the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s investigation of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of a private e-mail server during her tenure.

 

  • All records of communications between any agent, employee, or representative of the Federal Bureau of Investigation regarding, concerning, or related to the aforementioned investigation. This request includes, but is not limited to, any related communications with any official, employee, or representative of the Department of Justice, the Executive Office of the President, the Democratic National Committee, and/or the presidential campaign of Hillary Clinton.

 

  • All records related to the meeting between Attorney General Lynch and former President Bill Clinton on June 27, 2016.

 

In a previously unseen email, on July 1, 2016, Strzok forwarded to Bill Priestap, assistant director of FBI counterintelligence, and other FBI officials an article in The New York Times titled then “ Lynch to Remove Herself From Decision Over Clinton Emails, Official Says.” Priestap comments on it, saying: “The meeting in PX is all over CNN TV news this morning …” Strzok replies: “Timing’s not ideal in that it falsely adds to those seeking the ‘this is all choreographed’ narrative. But I don’t think it’s worth changing … later won’t be better.”  Priestap responds “Agreed.”

 

In November 2017, Judicial Watch revealed 29 pages of FBI documents showing officials were concerned about a leak that Bill Clinton delayed his aircraft taking off in order to “maneuver” a meeting with the attorney general.  The resulting story in the Observer was discussed in this production of documents. The Strzok email was absent from this production.

 

Another Strzok email suggest the decision on the Clinton email matter has been under discussion since April 2016—three months before then-FBI Director James Comey announced he would recommend no prosecution.

 

On July 3, 2016, an email with the subject line “Must Read Security Article” someone from the FBI’s Security Division (SECD) forwards the article in the Observer and reveals concern:

 

I believe that the source quoted in the article is one of the local Phoenix LEO’s [law enforcement officers]. Needless to say that I have contacted the Phoenix office and will contact the local’s [sic] who assisted in an attempt to stem any further damage. This is exactly why our Discretion and Judgement are the foundation of the AG’s trust in our team, which is why we can never violate that trust, like the source did in this article.” [Emphasis in original]

 

A July 1, 2016, email from an unidentified official in the FBI Security Division sent to officials in several FBI offices with the subject line “Media Reports***Not for Dissemination***”, sent in the wake of the tarmac meeting, an FBI official warns his colleagues (with emphasis) “Our job is to protect the boss from harm and embarrassment.” [Emphasis in original] He emphasizes that FBI officials should ask themselves “What issues are currently being reported in the media? And what actions/interactions/situations that the Director may be in could impact them.” The official then cites an example of a public relations disaster near-miss when Comey’s plane “literally just missed Clinton’s plane” when they flew into the White Plains, NY airport (HPN) a few months earlier, and saying, “Imagine the optics and the awkward situation we would have put the Director in we would have been at the FBO at the same time as Secretary Clinton.”

 

In a July 1, 2016 email exchange FBI Section Chief Rachel Rojas warns a colleague to “stay away” from discussion of the Clinton Lynch tarmac meeting following publication of the meeting, unless they hear from a “higher up”. The colleague responds the next day, telling Rojas not to worry because, “I know better <winking.>” He/she adds that “it was DOJ opa [Office of Public Affairs] who threw us under the bus.” Rojas replies “Doj is likely overwhelmed so in [sic] hoping it wasn’t intentional. I know it wasn’t you guys because I know you have great judgement. Nothing good would come from that. Her staff should have avoided that scenario. The bu[reau] will be fine but obviously disappointed on how this is happening. Unfortunately, she’s taking heat from all over the place and I feel bad for her. I know she didn’t want this on her plate or for this to happen.” The colleague then concludes by saying that he/she thought the leaker was “a Phoenix cop assisting with the motorcade.”

 

“These emails are astonishing, no wonder the FBI hid them from Judicial Watch and the court,” stated Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “They show anti-Trump, pro-Clinton FBI Agent Peter Strzok admitting the decision not to prosecute the Clinton email issue was made back in April 2016 – long before even Hillary Clinton was interviewed.  And the new emails show that the FBI security had the political objective of protecting then-Director Comey from ‘embarrassment’—which is, frankly, disturbing.”

 

On June 27, 2016, Attorney General Loretta Lynch met with former President Bill Clinton on board a parked plane at Sky Harbor International Airport in Phoenix, Arizona.  The meeting occurred during the then-ongoing investigation of Mrs. Clinton’s email server, and only a few days before she was interviewed the Justice Department and FBI.  (Judicial Watch filed  a request on June 30 that the U.S. Department of Justice Office of the Inspector General investigate that meeting.)

 

The tarmac meeting also came just days before former FBI Director James Comey held the July 5, 2016, press conference in which he announced that no charges would be filed against Mrs. Clinton. In his subsequent, May 3, 2017, testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Comey said the Lynch-Clinton tarmac meeting was the “capper” among “a number of things” that had caused him to determine that Department of Justice leadership “could not credibly complete the investigation and decline prosecution without grievous damage to the American people’s confidence in the justice system.”
