The Fires of Treason – No Small Thing


Even as the spoken and written Press propagandizes against President Trump, there is plenty of documentation – with more to be revealed – that a frame-job to depose a sitting President has occurred. Justin Smith does his part sharing what can be publicly dug up by anyone searching about this coup attempt. YET in this latest Justin submission he shared some misgivings about operation of justice in today’s America:

 

I’m not overly optimistic that William Barr is going to ever successfully prosecute the traitors to America that were found within the Obama administration and working together across party lines to destroy our republic, but maybe he will prove me wrong. If some of these people are not prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law and imprisoned soon, I truly believe this republic is going to be so irreparably damaged that we will find ourselves in a continuation of battles and civil strife years out.

Justin has good reason for some pessimism. Politicians and crooks related to the Democratic Party have been committing crimes and getting away with it for at least a quarter century. Even if Attorney General is an honest representative of justice, can he buck a system that has been corrupted for so long? I HOPE SO!

The Fires of Treason – No Small Thing  

The Truth Falls Like Radioactive Ash

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent  6/15/2019 8:46 PM

 

Americans are wondering how such a well-engineered republic, with all its time tested traditions and checks and balances, could be turned into a blazing forest fire of political misdeeds and treason by the Obama administration and the traitors within, but as the nation moves into the summer of 2019, many remain hopeful that U.S. Attorney General William Barr, U.S. Attorney John Durham and the fine efforts of men such as Representatives Devin Nunes and Trey Gowdy and others will succeed in identifying, prosecuting and imprisoning all involved in the plot against candidate and then President Trump. The nation cannot ‘move on’ until these traitors, these rats who are now jumping their sinking ship, are held accountable for their criminal and unconstitutional actions.

 

Even prior to President Trump’s declassification order last month, escalating matters in the investigation of the investigators, most of America was already aware of most of the facts, already documented, in the seditious, subversive plot between the Hillary Clinton campaign and many key government figures, including former president Barack Obama, who could not have possibly failed to understand all the action. And now, with a paper trail as wide as Percy Priest Lake [Blog Editor: For readers who are unaware, the significance of the lake mention undoubtedly relates to author Justin Smith residing in Rutherford County Tennessee] and a fouled up coup, the truth is falling down on the traitors’ shoulders like radioactive ash.

Incredulously, during the last week of May, Representative Adam Schiff, House Intelligence Committee Chairman, accused President Trump and Attorney General Barr of attempting to “conspire to weaponize law enforcement and classified information against their political enemies.” This would be hilarious if it weren’t so serious, and if not for the fact that Schiff accused President Trump of the very thing the Democratic Party and then President Obama did for several of his last years in office.

 

As we know through many testimonies, Christopher Steele wouldn’t even vouch for his own dossier’s veracity and accuracy. Furthermore, FBI lawyer Lisa Page’s damning testimony before Congress stated that contrary to FBI procedures for counterintelligence operations, Donald Trump’s campaign, supposedly infiltrated by Russians and “colluders”, had not been warned of any such nefarious dealings because the Steele dossier was not reliable enough to necessitate any warning.

 

If the dossier was not reliable enough to warn Trump’s campaign about the Kremlin’s plot, how could it remotely serve as the basis for obtaining FISA warrants to spy on Donald Trump and his inner circle? America demands a full accounting of who, what, where, when, why and how the dossier was used four, possibly five, times to dupe the FISA Court.

On May 24th, Representative Lindsey Graham, who has emerged as one of President Trump’s most intense and loyal supporters, spoke on Trump’s declassification order and told Fox and Friends: “You’re going to find out the mentality of the people investigating the president. You’re going to find out what they did and said. You’re going to find out that Papadopoulos was not working with the Russians. There’ll be some transcripts coming out where he says, ‘If you did that, that’d be treason.’ So the bottom line is, there’s going to be a lot of information about they were warned Steele was a bad guy and you can’t trust him. They blew through every stop sign”.

 

If Donald Trump wasn’t the subject of the surveillance, as the FBI asserted, then there was no valid reason not to apprise him of the surveillance and what was suspected, during the January 2017 briefing. Who decided not to give the President a FULL briefing on the dossier? Who decided to deliberately hide this from the new Commander-In-Chief?

 

All of a sudden America is witnessing James Comey, James Clapper, John Brennan accusing each other of being guilty of inserting the unreliable Steele Dossier into a presidential assessment, since its ridiculous stories and outright lies have been exposed. If they truly believed that this dossier was fact — that the American people faced an existential threat from Donald Trump’s sexual perversions, hatred of Obama and ties with Moscow, a reprobate who stole the election from Hillary  — why are they not vying for all the credit for warning President Obama and the American people, given that they leaked and pushed this narrative over the past three years?

 

Fox News investigative journalist Catherine Herridge reported last month that an email from former FBI Director James Comey in December 2016 indicates that it was John Brennan who pushed the dossier to be included in the presidential intelligence report. A source inside the CIA blames Comey for pressing the dossier’s inclusion.

Noting that he has seen the report, former Rep. Trey Gowdy has stated it does not look good for John Brennan.

 

Protesting their innocence, Andrew McCabe and James Comey are at odds too, even though they both swore President Trump remains a threat to the republic and leaked classified documents to the media, supposedly to save us, to save America. McCabe asserts that the Steele dossier was the primary evidence presented to the FISA Court by the FBI, which Comey denies. Why would they be at odds if their leaks were nobly motivated and their cause a righteous one?

 

The fact that President Trump’s declassification order includes the Department of Treasury and the Department of Energy makes the matter even darker, more intriguing, and, in fact, a critical point that suggests pressure applied on President Trump not to release classified documents was more subversion, and the focus was on using Russian collusion as a way to conceal the FBI’s spying and abuse of power; this was also part of a broader attempt to cover up other massive Democrat corruption, especially the Uranium One Deal and real Russian collusion by Democrats and the true depth of Clinton’s pay-for-play operation within the U.S. State Department, with many people aware of its existence.

 

The salary men of the FBI dream of getting the top job, so they play along, which explains Mueller’s motivation as a one-time bag man for Clinton in the Uranium One scheme. And that makes for an extremely vile and dangerous partner when one considers Hillary Clinton’s vermin-like rapacity and her shrewd, corrupt, clever ruthlessness. It’s like selling one’s soul to the devil and realizing too late what a terrible deal one has made.

 

Abuse of power is to the Democrats what drugs are to the addict, as exhibited by Susan Rice, National Security Advisor under Obama, who regularly unmasked American citizens picked up on NSA surveillance sweeps. Also important to note, Samantha Power, U.N. Ambassador, averaged unmasking someone every working day of 2016, unmasking almost three-hundred; in comparison, John Bolton only unmasked three during his tenure as U.N Ambassador, according to PJ Media.

 

And by now, it is pretty well acknowledged that elements within the FBI and most likely the CIA conducted an illegal surveillance operation against President Trump. Attorney General Barr has said as much, stating the only remaining thing is to determine if the surveillance was predicated upon the law and through a substantial evidentiary basis. The only decision left is whether or not these people face charges or the whole thing gets swept under the rug.

 

Some details remain to be confirmed, for instance: Was the entrapment conman Josef Mifsud working for the CIA and/or Britain’s MI6 and/or Hillary Clinton‘s Fusion GPS contractor, or Orbis Business Intelligence? I believe America is going to discover very few Russians involved in all of this, but rather, they will see the FBI attempted to infiltrate the Trump campaign and coordinated with Australia and the United Kingdom to frame Donald Trump for collusion, so he could be prevented from taking office or removed from office after the inauguration. The remaining questions aren’t going to be asked by the New York Times.

 

On May 15th, former U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia. Joe DiGenova explained to Breitbart News Daily: “There was a brazen plot that started before the election, and the plot was to illegally exonerate Hillary Clinton so that she could become president, and then if she lost, there was an insurance policy to frame Donald Trump so he could be prevented from taking office or removed from office after the inauguration. … John Brennan is at the core of this conspiracy. His handymen and acolytes were Clapper and Comey and the senior FBI officials who worked with Comey. Let’s not forget that all of the people in senior levels of the Department of Justice under Obama were involved in this plot. … Loretta Lynch was too dumb to be allowed to lead it,” DiGenova speculated. “This is Brennan Inc.”

 

No longer standing unified, the drama between Brennan, Comey and Clapper is just the surface. The Durham investigation could reach out of the FBI and CIA up through the Obama administration, including Attorney General Lynch and the White House itself.

 

We are in the midst of a morality play, where some of the most unlikely villains have aligned themselves with the cause of tyranny and Evil. And standing against them is the one time billionaire Playboy, President Donald Trump, an unlikely hero. Yet here we are, with the tide turning our way once more.

 

All of America’s true patriots must raise their voice today and tomorrow and for as long as it takes to arrive at a day of reckoning for these traitors to the republic and our beloved America, otherwise and to our chagrin, we may eventually see the administrative state simply bury this sorry episode of American history. However, make no mistake, the weaponization of federal agencies will happen again, and the next time, America may not be so fortunate to have a president who is strong enough to withstand the onslaught on behalf of the people and the nation.

 

When due process is ignored and justice is measured by compulsion and our Fourth Amendment Rights against improper searches and seizures seemingly no longer exist, freedom and liberty is endangered. When we see men, who rebuke the Constitution, leverage the law through politics, violating other men’s 6th Amendment right to due process and acquiring power over individual liberty by graft and scheme; and our representatives don’t protect us against them, but rather protects them against the people, our republic is endangered. And when America sees corruption wielding heavy influence and individual liberty so easily dispatched and suppressed, We the People have realized that our freedom too is endangered and soon to perish.

 

It is no small thing to restore a republic once it has fallen into corruption. It may be that the task is impossible, but it lies before us to do. The alternative offers only a dark future, and thus, it is no option at all. And if we do not try, the Founders’ Republic and the larger war for Western Civilization will be lost.

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

US Attorney John Durham plans to question two CIA officers about the suspicious origins of Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation. (screenshots)

 

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.

 

(Source: Fox News)

 

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.

FBI Failed to Document Four Clinton Witness Interviews. Barr Should Reopen Clinton Probe

 

By Sara Carter

June 3, 2019

William Barr

 

The FBI failed to document at least four interviews of witnesses in the bureau’s investigation into former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s use of a private server to send classified emails, according to documents obtained by the government watchdog Judicial Watch.

 

Judicial Watch also discovered among the 218 pages of emails between former FBI Special Agent Peter Strzok and his paramour former FBI Attorney Lisa Page that then FBI General Counsel James Baker had instructed “FBI officials to expedite the release of FBI investigative material to Hillary Clinton’s lawyer, David Kendall in August 2016. Kendall and the FBI’s top lawyer discussed specifically quickly obtaining the “302” report of the FBI/DOJ interview of Mrs. Clinton.”

 

These findings are significant, as they come at a crucial time when the Department of Justice under Attorney General William Barr is investigating the bureau’s handling of both the Clinton probe and the investigation into the origination of the bureau’s investigation into President Donald Trump’s campaign alleged – now debunked – ties to Russia.

 

“These incredible documents show the leadership of the FBI rushed to give Hillary Clinton her FBI interview report shortly before the election,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “And the documents also show the FBI failed to timely document interviews in the Clinton email ‘matter’ – further confirming the whole investigation was a joke. AG Barr can’t reopen the Clinton email investigation soon enough.”

 

The information obtained by Judicial Watch coincides with documents obtained by Congressional investigations. For example, Rep. John Ratcliffe, a former federal prosecutor who sits on the House Judiciary Committee, told Fox New’s Maria Bartiromo Sunday that Strzok’s involvement in the Trump campaign’s defensive briefing mired in conflict.

 

First, Ratcliffe noted that it was Strzok who opened the official investigation into Trump’s campaign on July 31, 2016 dubbed “Crossfire Hurricane.” Ratcliffe warned that U.S. Attorney John Durham, who has been appointed by Barr to investigate the bureau, was essentially acting as a ‘special counsel’ in the DOJ’s investigation.

 

“It’s interesting that 18 days later on August 17, of 2016 that the FBI and CIA conducted a counterintelligence briefing for the purpose of protecting and warning Donald Trump would put in charge for coordinating that briefing Peter Strzok – the same agent who was already investigating the Trump campaign,” Ratcliffe told Bartiromo. “The same agent who eight days before that defensive briefing to protect and warn Donald Trump sent a text message saying he was going to ‘stop him.’ Then two days before that defensive briefing sent a text message saying ‘we need an insurance policy’ against the Trump presidency.”

 

“So little wonder on that day of August 17, 2016 Donald Trump isn’t warned about Russian interference in his campaign and he wasn’t briefed about the Steele Dossier, wasn’t briefed about Carter Page,” Ratcliffe added.

 

Currently, DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz is putting together his report on the FBI’s handling of the FBI’s probe into the Trump campaign. According to numerous congressional sources the investigation is expected to include the FBI’s defensive briefing to Trump and the lack of information provided to the Trump campaign. Strzok, who was vehemently anti-Trump in his text messages to Page, is also expected to be a significant part of the Horowitz investigation.

Rep. John Ratcliffe Reveals Peter Strzok’s Role in Spying on Trump Campaign]

 

Judicial Watch FOIA:

 

The documents were obtained in a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit filed after the Justice Department failed to respond to a December 4, 2017, FOIA request (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of Justice (No. 1:18-cv-00154)) for:

 

  • All records of communications, including but not limited to, emails, text messages and instant chats, between FBI official Peter Strozk and FBI attorney Lisa Page;

 

  • All travel requests, travel authorizations, travel vouchers and expense reports of Peter Strozk;

 

  • All travel requests, travel authorizations, travel vouchers and expense reports of Lisa Page.

 

Revelation: Below Is an ‘Exact Excerpt’ From Judicial Watch’s Findings

 

On August 16, 2016, at 10:02 p.m. Baker emails then-Associate Deputy Director David Bowdich; Michael Steinbach, former executive assistant director for national security; former Acting Assistant Director Jason V. Herring; former FBI lawyer Lisa Page; former Principal Deputy General Counsel Trisha Anderson; Michael Kortan, FBI assistant director for public affairs, now retired; James Rybicki, former chief of staff to Comey; and others to inform them that he “just spoke” with Clinton’s lawyer Kendall, who requested documents from the FBI. Baker says he told Kendall he would “need to submit a request.” Baker tells them, “I said we would process it expeditiously.”

 

I just spoke with David Kendall … I conveyed our view that in order to obtain the documents [FBI investigative material] they are seeking they need to submit a request pursuant to the Privacy Act and FOIA. I said they could submit a letter to me covering both statutes. They will send it in the morning. I said that we would process it expeditiously. David asked us to focus first on the Secretary’s 302 [FBI interview report]. I said OK. [Redacted] We will have to focus on this issue tomorrow and get the 302 out the door as soon as possible and then focus on the rest of the stuff.

 

The following day, August 17, 2016, Kendall sent a FOIA/Privacy Act request on “behalf of former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton” to the FBI’s top lawyer with a request for “expeditious processing.” Baker passes this request to Bowdich, Steinbach, Herring, Page, Anderson:

 

 

“In my view, we need to move as quickly as possible on this, but pursuant to David’s oral request last night, we should focus first on Secretary Clinton’s 302…. Is the end of this week out of the question for her 302?”

 

In a follow-up email exchange, the same day, Anderson arranged for Herring, Page, former FBI Assistant Director and head of the Office of Congressional Affairs Gregory Brower, Strzok and others to “coordinate a plan for processing and releasing” Clinton’s 302, though one official reminds others that they should process the request “consistent” with other requests.

 

Then, in an August 21, 2016, email exchange Baker tells his people that he would “alert” Kendall shortly before Clinton’s 302 was to be posted on the FBI’s FOIA Vault webpage. On September 2, 2016, the FBI announced the release of Clinton’s interview documents.

 

Finally, on August 24, 2016, the acting FBI FOIA unit chief said he sees “no problem” with giving Hillary’s attorney a heads up before her records were posted to the Vault.

 

Other documents show that on August 5, 2016, Page, Strzok and FBI intelligence analyst Jonathan Moffa are notified by a FBI assistant general counsel from the national security law branch that additional 302’s were in need of processing:

 

Today [Redacted] brought over additional 302s from the WFO [Washington Field Office]. Are those supposed to go through the redaction process for production to DOJ on Monday? We’re trying to figure out what needs to be completed this weekend.

 

Page responds by writing to Strzok, Moffa and others that four FBI 302 report of interviews related to the Clinton “Midyear Exam” investigation had never even been written:

 

[Redacted] to the best of my knowledge, yes they will when Pete identified for [redacted] the DOJ edits that needed to be made to the 302s [redacted] discovered that there were four (I think) 302s that had never been written. What I don’t know is whose 302s they are but unless Pete or Jon are able to respond in short order, I would throw them on the pile for redactions. Thanks so much.

 

On August 24, 2016, Daily Beast reporter Shane Harris sent an inquiry to the FBI asking if Comey’s admission to Congress was accurate that Hillary’s lawyers at William & Connolly did not possess the security clearances needed to see and possess highly classified Hillary emails being stored at their law offices. Harris’s question set off a scramble at the top of the FBI all the way up to Comey over the next 28 hours, producing a seven-page (mostly redacted) email discussion, with Lisa Page concluding, “Could we say something more equivocal?”

 

In a September 1, 2016, email exchange, Page, Strzok, Office of Public Affairs official Michael Kortan and Special Agent Richard Quinn discuss an email from The Hill’s John Solomon, wherein Solomon forwarded them his draft article for Circa.com citing “government sources” detailing extensive evidence the FBI had collected, which showed Hillary Clinton “violated federal record-keeping laws” through her use of a private BlackBerry and server, despite the security and legal risks she was told they posed.  Solomon asked for any final “guidance” from the FBI before publishing. Page writes to Moffa, Strzok and a redacted FBI official, it was “pretty inaccurate,” but provided nothing to support her charge of its inaccuracy. Judicial Watch’s work on the Hillary Clinton email scandal is cited extensively in the column, and former U.S. Attorney Matt Whitaker was quoted as well, saying a special prosecutor was needed to look into Hillary’s use of the personal server.

 

On August 16, 2016, after Congress requested that the FBI supply additional copies of the binders of Clinton server-investigation materials, an unidentified FBI official complained to his colleagues of being understaffed and under supplied:

 

We literally do not have the office supplies to do this. Nor do I have the IAs [Investigative Assistants/Analysts] for assistance…. These binders are huge and each one took hours to compile.

 

+++

I am not trying to throw shade…. I just wish decisions could get made by considering resources.

 

I need people in [room] 7947 ready to go in the early AM and a charge card for Staples.”

Robert Mueller, The FBI And Obama’s Culture Of Corruption

 

By Kelleigh Nelson

June 4th, 2019

News With Views

 

Sometimes duplicity and treason are markers of the enemy, and sometimes, the failed intention of a masterful ally. But, nevertheless, as they burden you with a vexing brand of love, they become nothing more than the kiss of Judas, pressing a crown of thorns into your flesh.  —Addison Webster Moore

 

Americans cannot comprehend how their fellow countrymen could not love their country. But the left’s anti-Americanism is intrinsic to their entire worldview. Liberals promote the right of Islamic fanatics for the same reason they promote the rights of adulterers, pornographers, abortionists, criminals, and Communists. They instinctively root for anarchy against civilization. The inevitable logic of the liberal position is to be for treason. —Ann Coulter

 

And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are the gift of God? That they are not to be violated but with his wrath? Indeed, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just: that his justice cannot sleep forever. —Thomas Jefferson

 

Incrimination through innuendo is the rule today as I listened to the liar of truth, Robert Mueller.  Truth is treason in the empire of lies and truth has now become the new hate speech.  Mueller’s final words stood the “rule of law” and presumption of innocence on their heads.

 

Apparently, Mueller wanted President Trump to appoint him FBI director again and he was rejected. The very next day, Rod Rosenstein appointed Mueller to investigate the bogus Russian collusion.  Undoubtedly, President Trump knew that after 9/11, FBI Director Mueller purged the FBI training documents on Islamist terrorists and he acquiesced to the Muslim Brotherhood front group, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).

 

Robert Mueller had joined Trump’s National Golf Club in Virginia and seventeen years later, Mueller claimed the family was not making full use of the membership, and he wanted a portion of his $15K back. The Club justifiably refused. Unbelievably, this is included in footnote 529 on page 80-81 of the Mueller report.  No doubt Mueller had negative feelings for Donald Trump.

 

Deep State Revenge

 

After Attorney General (AG) Jeff Sessions recused himself from overseeing the Russian collusion debacle, Rod Rosenstein became the AG in charge of the investigation.  He disregarded the criminal conduct requirement and authorized a broad and vague counterintelligence probe, directing the special counsel to investigate “any links” between the Russian government and the Trump campaign.

 

Mueller passes Witch Hunt Torch to Nadler. Branco toon

 

This was unprecedented and gave a blank check to Mueller and his gang of Hillary supporting democrat attorneys the right to go after anyone or anything related to President Trump.

 

After the nearly two-year investigation, Special Counsel Robert Mueller, the Republican Deep State insider and hardcore Never Trumper, again put a knife in our President’s back.

 

Mueller’s actions made it clear he wanted to nail President Trump, he wanted him out of office, but there was no damning evidence.

 

Mueller’s eight-minute speech regarding the 448 page Two-Volume Special Counsel report contained these incriminating words, “And as set forth in the report after that investigation, if we had had confidence that the President clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said so.” (Volume II of the Mueller report was the obstruction-of-justice investigation regarding President Trump’s actions and conduct during the entire spurious Russian collusion inquiry.)

 

AG Barr had specifically asked Mueller, “Is your reason for not charging Trump anything to do with the Office of Legal Counsel guidelines?” Barr said that Mueller told him three times, “No, that has nothing to do with it.” Barr is on record on two occasions saying that Mueller told him three times the Office of Legal Counsel guidelines have nothing to do with his decision not to indict the president or not to link the president to crimes.

 

Democrat Alan Dershowitz spelled it out in his recent Hill article. “Mueller went beyond the conclusion of his report and gave a political gift to Congressional democrats who are seeking to institute impeachment proceedings against President Trump. By implying that President Trump might have committed obstruction of justice, Mueller effectively invited Democrats to institute impeachment proceedings.”

 

Mueller failed to investigate the bogus dossier, FISA abuse, Obama’s spying on the Trump campaign, or the players involved. The intelligence community has proven themselves to be a venomous nest of traitorous vipers.

 

Spying and FISA Abuse

 

John Solomon reported over a year ago that spying on the Trump campaign occurred earlier than the summer of 2016.  “It originated earlier, 1,700 miles away in London, when foreign figures contacted Trump campaign advisers and provided the FBI with hearsay allegations of Trump-Russia collusion, bureau documents and interviews of government insiders. These contacts in spring 2016, some from trusted intelligence sources, others from Hillary Clinton supporters, occurred well before FBI headquarters authorized an official counterintelligence investigation on July 31, 2016.”

 

Rep. Mark Meadows, (R-NC) said, “This new information begs the questions: Who were the informants working for, who were they reporting to and why has the DOJ and FBI gone to such great lengths to hide these contacts?”

 

Former Deputy Assistant AG Victoria Toensing and her husband, former U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia, Joe diGenova, were on Hannity on May 31st, along with a full panel of guests. Toensing said that there is evidence the Obama administration FISA abuse started as early as 2012, and the abuse goes all the way to the top.

 

Obama’s Illegal Surveillance

 

The Obama White House used the most sensitive intrusive surveillance systems of the NSA to spy on Americans.  A ruling by FISA Court Presiding Judge Rosemary Collyer finds that 85 percent of NSA database requests under FISA section 702 authority at the DOJ were illegal or noncompliant. Surveillance systems, including PRISM, were spying on thousands of Americans, including Donald Trump and those around him. (United States Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court of Review Amicus Brief)  Moreover, Collyer finds that the DOJ showed an appalling “lack of institutional candor.”

 

In April 2017, Judge Collyer found that unwarranted and illegal surveillance of American citizens was done by the highest reaches of the Obama Administration for at least 4 years, starting in 2012. (Secret court rebukes NSA for 5-year illegal surveillance of U.S. citizens – MAY 26, 2017).  Moreover, James Comey authorized and allowed for limitless, continuous, unlawful, and warrantless access by three Federal contractors. (Institutional Lack of Candor – FISA Violations January 24, 2018).  Link

 

Judge Collyer found that its targets were American citizens and prominent Republicans and the abuse was continuous, frequently entering the same person’s name over a protracted period of time.

 

Collyer ruled that this information was shared and disseminated unlawfully to John Brennan and James Clapper. Brennan admitted that the CIA had hacked into the Senate Intelligence Committee’s computers. (Brennan, Clapper, and Comey were instrumental in infecting the DOJ and FBI with the Steele Dossier.)

 

Furthermore, information was disseminated within the Obama administration in violation of the 4th amendment, all under the authorization of James Comey. He knew it was illegal and he should be indicted for these and other crimes.

 

When they got caught, they fought back with treason by continuing to usurp the Constitution. Undermining the incoming President with the Russia hoax, trying to cover up their litany of crimes, and staging an attempted coup against Donald Trump.

They didn’t get away with it.

 

Admiral Mike Rogers

 

In the spring of 2016, the Director of the NSA, Admiral, discovered that the NSA’s comprehensive database collecting all electronic communications in the United States was being searched by unauthorized FBI “contractors” and he moved to “cut off that access.” Link

 

If Admiral Mike Rogers hadn’t put a stop to the misuse of the NSA, none of this would have come to light. Former assistant Attorney General, John Carlin, tried to have Rogers fired for fear that the skullduggery would be exposed further, but he failed. Rogers visited candidate Trump shortly after his discovery to warn him that Trump Tower was “wiretapped.”

 

Wray-FBI, Haspel-CIA & Coats-Dir. 0f National Intelligence

 

Stonewalling Classified Documents

 

In a Memorial Day radio interview, Joe diGenova told that FBI Director Christopher Wray, CIA Director Gina Haspel, and Director of National Intelligence, Dan Coats have been stonewalling the release of classified documents to AG Barr prior to the President’s declassification. Take note that Dan Coats is a former Senator from Indiana and a close friend of VP Mike Pence who was in charge of the Trump transition team and recommended Coats.

 

AG Barr was fed up trying to get classified documents, so he went to the President and told him he could not get the answers the President requested.  Twenty-four hours later, the President declassified the documents.  The White House also instructed several agencies to cooperate with Barr’s inquiry, including the Central Intelligence Agency, the Defense Department, the State Department, and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence.

 

The intelligence community is in full resistance to disclosing what they did during the campaign.  There’s a full-scale war between AG Barr and another FBI director who thinks he’s James Comey.  DiGenova said that Christopher Wray is an “unmitigated disaster,” and we are “watching the quintessential Washington power battle.”  Devvy Kidd’s latest article on Wray fully agrees with diGenova.

 

DiGenova believes the Obama administration spying, exposed by Judge Rosemary Collyer, is a bigger scandal than the FBI’s Russian collusion coup.  Shortly after the 2012 election, the Obama administration began their illegal accessing of the National Security Agency (NSA) database via 702 queries.  And now, the FBI and CIA fear that since these disclosures have become publicly known, their powers may be cut back, FISA may be restricted and some additional people may go to prison.

 

AG Barr’s Investigators

 

Talk about the foxes in the hen house!  CIA Director Gina Haspel, Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats, and FBI Director Chris Wray are all participating in the investigation, which Barr first announced publicly during a congressional hearing last month.

 

Dan Coats is a long-time establishment creature having served as an Indiana Congressman and Senator for a total of sixteen years.

 

FBI Director Chris Wray said that he does not consider court-approved FBI surveillance to be “spying” and said he has no evidence the FBI illegally monitored Trump’s campaign.  This alone should worry AG William Barr.

 

According to Sam Faddis, former CIA Ops officer, and author of Beyond Repair: The Decline and Fall of the CIA, Trump’s CIA director, Gina Haspel, is a protégée of John Brennan. She was at his right hand during all the critical junctures. Haspel was the CIA’s London Section Chief during the time the Deep State was working with former MI6 agent, Christopher Steele, and couldn’t possibly have been in the dark about the attempt to subvert the election/presidency of Donald Trump.  Although Trump called for the revocation of John Brennan’s secret security clearance, the Deep State has made sure that this has NOT happened as yet.  Most likely, they’re waiting out his presidency to return to “business as usual.”  Link

 

Remember John Huber, the missing appointee by Jeff Sessions?  Fourteen months ago AG Sessions had asked Huber to look into issues related to the sale of Uranium One and allegations that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had been improperly involved in the process, as well as broader claims of corruption at the Clinton Foundation.  In a recent interview on CBS, Mr. Barr seemed to suggest that what evidence Huber found, if any, may soon be revealed.  Barr also revealed that Inspector General Horowitz and John Durham have taken over most of Huber’s responsibilities.

 

One wonders with this cast of characters if we’ll ever see true justice.

 

Conclusion

 

As Gregg Jarrett stated on Fox News, Mueller’s actions were not only noxious, but patently unfair to Trump.  The special counsel publicly besmirched the president with tales of suspicious behavior and turned our justice system on its head.

 

Everyone is entitled to the presumption of innocence.  It is the bedrock on which justice is built.  Throughout his career, there is proof this has never registered with Robert Mueller. Link and Link

 

Lindsey Graham, Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee needs to subpoena Robert Mueller.  He should have staff lawyers ready to question him, just like the House committee wanted to do with Attorney General William Barr.

US Attorney Huber NEVER EVEN STARTED His [FISA] Investigation


Former Attorney General Jeff Sessions tasked Federal U.S. Attorney John Huber (Office in Utah) to investigate FISA abuse allegations in spying on the Trump campaign. The problem with Huber’s investigation: HE DIDN’T DO SQUAT! Huber is either incompetent or a Deep Stater.

 

Thankfully President Trump now has a competent Attorney General in William Barr. Barr removed Huber whose tasks were assigned to U.S. Attorney John Durham. Story at The Gateway Pundit.

BREAKING: Attorney General Barr Discloses US Attorney Huber NEVER EVEN STARTED His Investigation — US Attorney John Durham Took Over His Work

 

By Joe Hoft

May 31, 2019

The Gateway Pundit

 

John Huber

 

Today on CBS Attorney General William Barr disclosed that the Huber investigation is over.

 

Huber was assigned to look at FISA applications and the electronic surveillance during the 2016 election and actions by Hillary Clinton.

 

Huber did not even start his investigation.

 

He didn’t do a damn thing!

 

AG Barr said this morning on CBS News that Huber did nothing and his work was taken over by the team he set up under US Attorney John Durham:

 

JAN CRAWFORD: Um, what’s the status of Huber’s investigation in Utah? I think the former Attorney General Sessions had asked him to look at this.

 

WILLIAM BARR: Right, so Huber had originally been asked to take a look at the FISA applications and the electronic surveillance but then he stood back and put that on hold while the Office of Inspector General was conducting its review, which would’ve been normal for the department. And he was essentially on standby in case Mr. Horowitz referred a matter to him to be handled criminally. So he has not been active on this front in recent months and so Durham is taking over that role. The other issues he’s been working on relate to Hillary Clinton. Those are winding down and hopefully we’ll be in a position to bring those to fruition.

 

JAN CRAWFORD: So he won’t be involved in this really at all then?

 

WILLIAM BARR: No.

 

JAN CRAWFORD: This is his role, it’s done?

 

WILLIAM BARR: Right.

 

JAN CRAWFORD: And now Durham is going to pick up–

 

WILLIAM BARR: Yes, right.

 

We reported this three days ago from an interview of Joe diGenova and now AG Barr has confirmed it.

 

John Huber was the special prosecutor tapped by former AG Jeff Sessions to investigate FISA abuses by Obama’s DOJ/FBI.  Sessions nominated Huber to perform this investigation after numerous calls for a special investigation into the Clinton Foundation and the Deep State.

 

But months ago we reported that nothing was getting done.

 

Mark Meadows (R-NC), Jim Jordan (R-OH) and Doug Collins (R-GA) sent a letter to special prosecutor John Huber on January 8th demanding answers by a January 21st deadline.

 

“Your investigation has been ongoing for over nine months. During the course of our extensive investigation we have interviewed more than a dozen current and former DOJ and FBI personnel, and were surprised to hear none of these potentially informative witnesses testified to speaking with you,” the GOP lawmakers wrote.

 

The Republican Congressmen then blasted Huber for being a no-show at the December hearing where Clinton Foundation whistleblowers Lawrence Doyle of DM Income Advisors and John Moynihan of JFM Associates testified.

 

The Clinton Foundation whistleblowers, Mr. Moynihan and Mr. Doyle told the committee they had to send their evidence to the Huber investigation THREE TIMES because they kept losing it.

 

In October, Congressman Meadows and Jim Jordan said they wanted to haul John Huber in before Congress to testify because they had not received any updates on Huber’s investigation.

 

Now we know that it was all a farce.  Huber did NOTHING!

 

Huber and the former Attorney General Jeff Sessions, should be brought before a grand jury and investigated for their actions in obstructing justice.

 

The American people are very angry about all that is going on in DC.  We want OUR country back!  We DEMAND justice!

Will Durham Finally End Deep State Corruption?


John R. Houk

© May 15, 2019

By now you have probably read that AG William Barr has appointed John Durham from the DOJ to investigate probable corruption in the process that led to spying on the Trump Campaign of 2016. Hopefully the scope of that investigation includes an examination of the FBI investigation into Crooked Hillary’s ILLEGAL private unsecured email server and Crooked Hillary Campaign involvement (which must include any Obama connection) in 2016 election manipulation.

 

BUT a history of Dem law breaking excuses means I’m not holding my breath for any actionable prosecution. I MEAN MY GOD, Trump appointee Director Christopher Wray is providing every appearance of covering up for FBI spying and corruption in all connections to President Trump:

 

 

 

 

 

By most accounts John Durham has been receiving accolades as a politically neutral Prosecutor of integrity. BUT when Robert Mueller was appointed as Special Prosecutor, he too received integrity accolades from the GOP and Dems alike. I remember Rep. Louie Gohmert raising concerns about Mueller. AND sure enough Mueller proceeded to assemble a prosecutorial team of Crooked Hillary donors and Dem Party hacks.

 

AGAIN due to a history of Dems skating away from legal action when laws are broken, I will not be surprised if NOTHING comes to account with a Durham investigation. By the way – for the same reasons I’m not holding my breath with reputed forthcoming revelations from Inspector General Michael Horowitz relating to FBI impropriety.

 

If my underwhelming suspicions are proven inaccurate, I WILL BE ECSTATIC.

6 Things to Know About the Prosecutor Investigating Spying on Trump Campaign

 

By Fred Lucas

May 14, 2019

The Daily Signal

 

Edgar Hoover FBI Building

 

John Durham, known for prosecuting FBI agents connected to infamous mobster James “Whitey” Bulger, is now a fourth attorney general’s pick to lead a special investigation into suspected government misconduct.

 

The Justice Department confirmed to media outlets that Attorney General William Barr named Durham, now U.S. attorney for the District of Connecticut, to look into why and how department and FBI officials began investigating associates of President Donald Trump before the 2016 election.

 

Durham’s resume includes investigating the mafia and crooked politicians.

 

Attorneys general from the Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama administrations all previously appointed Durham to lead special investigations.

 

Barr reportedly selected him to head the probe weeks ago, as the FBI came under intensified scrutiny for spying on one Trump campaign adviser and sending a confidential informant to talk to another.

 

In the aftermath of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report clearing the Trump campaign of conspiracy with Russia to influence the election, many Republican lawmakers called for an investigation into how the probe of Trump and his team commenced.

 

Two known incidents loom large: The FBI obtained a warrant under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act to put Trump campaign aide Carter Page under surveillance. The FBI also sent a confidential informant to talk to George Papadopoulos, another Trump campaign aide, in a bar. The woman told Papadopoulos that her name was Azra Turk, and he later described her as “flirtatious.”

 

Here are six things to know about the prosecutor picked by Barr.

 

  1. Career Prosecutor

 

Durham, 68, began his career as a Connecticut state prosecutor working from 1978 to 1982 in the New Haven State’s Attorney’s Office.

 

A registered Republican, he next served in nonpolitical positions through 35 years in the U.S. District of Connecticut, based in New Haven.

 

From 1982 to 1989, Durham supervised the New Haven field office of the Boston Strike Force in the Justice Department’s Organized Crime and Racketeering Section. For the next five years, he was chief of the criminal division for the U.S. Attorney’s Office in New Haven.

 

From 1994 through 2008, he served as deputy U.S. attorney, and then, through 2017, as counsel to the U.S. attorney.

  

Trump’s first attorney general, Jeff Sessions, appointed Durham as acting U.S. attorney for Connecticut in October 2017, and Trump nominated him for the post the next month. He took office in February 2018.

 

  1. Busting Mafia-FBI Connection

 

In 1999, then-Attorney General Janet Reno appointed Durham to investigate corruption in federal law enforcement in Boston.

 

He examined whether two Boston mob figures, Bulger and Stephen “The Rifleman” Flemmi, had corrupted the FBI agents whom they served as informants.

 

Durham’s investigation led to a 10-year prison sentence for retired FBI agent John Connolly Jr., found guilty of helping the two gangsters avoid prosecution.

 

As part of this investigation, Durham produced documents showing four men had been framed by FBI agents and convicted of murder in the 1960s. Two died in prison, but two others won a $100 million civil judgment against the Justice Department.

 

  1. Special Probes of CIA and Terror Detainees

 

In 2008, then-Attorney General Michael Mukasey appointed Durham as a special prosecutor to conduct what turned into a three-year probe of the destruction of CIA interrogation tapes. He didn’t recommend any prosecutions.

 

In an overlapping probe, then-Attorney General Eric Holder named him as a special prosecutor to investigate alleged mistreatment of terror suspects by CIA interrogators and government contractors.

 

The second probe came after the Justice Department released a report noting possible past abuse by CIA interrogators. Durham concluded by closing most of the cases, but called for continued inquiries into the deaths of two prisoners.

 

  1. Devoted Catholic, Red Sox Fan

 

Despite handling high-profile cases, Durham typically keeps a low profile.

 

Earlier this year, according to The Day newspaper in New London, Connecticut Deputy Chief State’s Attorney Leonard C. Boyle noted the only reason that Durham would make a public speech to a crowd at the University of St. Joseph, a Roman Catholic school in West Hartford, Connecticut.

 

“Other than an overwhelming commitment to the cause of justice, the two great devotions of John’s life are his Catholic faith and his family,” Boyle said of Durham.

 

Durham and his wife Susan have four sons and eight grandchildren. He reportedly is a big Boston Red Sox fan.

 

The New Republic, a liberal magazine, wrote of Durham in 2011 that he “earned a nonpartisan, camera-shy, ‘white knight’ reputation.”

 

  1. Public Corruption

    Durham led some of the biggest public corruption cases in Connecticut.

 

Among them was the case of Connecticut Gov. John G. Rowland, a Republican who resigned in 2004 after federal prosecutors found he illegally took gifts from state contractors. Rowland pleaded guilty and was sentenced to a year in prison for offenses committed as governor.

 

Durham also led an investigation of Bridgeport Mayor Joe Ganim, a Democrat, who was convicted on racketeering and bribery charges in 2003. Ganim spent six years in prison.

 

  1. Lauded by Democrats

 

Democrats recently excoriated Barr for even using the word “spy” to talk about actions by the Obama administration’s FBI and Justice Department against the Trump campaign before the presidential election in November 2016.

 

However, Democrats could have a difficult time in attacking Durham.

 

Confirmed as U.S. attorney in February 2018 by a voice vote in the Senate, he had gained praise from Democrats when Trump nominated him.

 

Among these admirers were two of Trump’s biggest critics, Connecticut’s two Democratic senators—Richard Blumenthal and Chris Murphy. The two men had recommended Durham to serve as U.S. attorney.

 

“John Durham has earned immense respect as a no-nonsense, fierce and fair prosecutor, and we are pleased that the White House has agreed with our recommendation that he serve as United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut,” a joint statement by Blumenthal and Murphy said. “As an Assistant United States Attorney, John Durham has proven himself time and time again in some of the most challenging and sensitive cases.”

 

It looks like Barr has found just such another case for Durham.

House panel votes to hold Barr in contempt, as Trump asserts executive privilege over Mueller files


It’s rich that the Dems on Nadler’s Committee cry President Trump is not above the law when the Special Persecutor could not find evidence that there was collusion/conspiracy with Russia pertaining to Russia working with the Trump campaign to win the 2016 Election.

 

AND YET these same Dems protected Obama and Crooked Hillary in frequent cases of obstruction of by Obama’s Administration preventing documents and/or mysteriously losing documents and electronic data by then majority Republicans AND Crooked Hillary’s very public destruction of subpoenaed evidence.

 

So when you hear Nadler and his fellow Dem ilk accuse President Trump and Attorney General Barr of being above the law – WHEN NO LAWS WERE BROKEN! – It is a demonstration of being involved in the Obama-cadre’s coup against the President. Sounds like treason to me.

House panel votes to hold Barr in contempt, as Trump asserts executive privilege over Mueller files

 

By Brooke Singman

May 8, 2019  3:30 PM CT

Fox News

 

https://video.foxnews.com/v/embed.js?id=6034011514001&w=466&h=263Watch the latest video at foxnews.com

Nadler, Barr head towards contempt showdown

Reaction from national security analyst Bradley Moss and former deputy assistant attorney general John Yoo.

 

The House Judiciary Committee voted Wednesday to recommend holding Attorney General Bill Barr in contempt of Congress for defying a subpoena for Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s unredacted Russia report and underlying documents, after President Trump asserted executive privilege in a bid to protect those files from release.

 

Both developments represented a major escalation in the already-tense fight between the two branches of government over access to information the Justice Department says cannot be legally released.

 

The committee’s 24-16 vote on contempt for Barr was along party lines and came after hours of debate. House leaders will now decide whether to take up the contempt citation on the House floor for a final vote. If approved, the measure would be referred to the U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia — who could choose not to act. House Democrats could also pursue a lawsuit.

 

“We did not relish doing this, but we have no choice,” Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., said after the vote, adding, “We’ve talked for a long time about approaching a constitutional crisis. We are now in it.”

 

A Justice Department spokeswoman, in a statement, accused Nadler of “inappropriate political theatrics” instead of working out a deal over Barr’s testimony.

 

“Unfortunately, rather than allowing negotiations to continue, Chairman Nadler short-circuited these efforts by proceeding with a politically motivated and unnecessary contempt vote, which he refused to postpone to allow additional time to explore discussion and compromise,” spokeswoman Kerri Kupec said.

 

Earlier, Nadler said the president’s move to invoke executive privilege shows the administration does not respect congressional oversight.

 

IMPRISONING BILL BARR IS LEFT’S NEW RALLYING CRY: ‘HAVE HIM LOCKED UP’ 

 

“By invoking executive privilege on all of our materials that are subject to subpoena, the process has come to a screeching halt,” Nadler said. “The administration has announced loud and clear that it does not recognize Congress as a co-equal branch of government with independent constitutional oversight authority and it will continue to wage its campaign of obstruction.”

 

Georgia Rep. Doug Collins, the top Republican on the committee, fired back at committee Democrats and called Wednesday’s vote a “cynical, mean-spirited, counterproductive and irresponsible step.”

 

“Democrats are angry the special counsel’s report did not produce the material or conclusions they expected to pave their path to impeaching the president. I feel compelled to remind everyone the report found that, despite offers to do so, no one from the Trump campaign knowingly conspired with the Russian government,” Collins said. “… They are angry our nation’s chief law enforcement officer and his deputy had the audacity to decide the evidence didn’t support charges for obstructing an investigation into something the president didn’t do.”

 

The president’s decision to invoke privilege came after the Justice Department, late Tuesday night, requested that the House Judiciary Committee postpone the scheduled vote to hold Barr in contempt. The Justice Department warned that if the committee did not postpone, the attorney general would recommend that Trump claim executive privilege over the materials.

 

On Wednesday, the White House did just that.

 

“The Attorney General has been transparent and accommodating throughout this process, including by releasing the no-collusion, no-conspiracy, no-obstruction Mueller Report to the public and offering to testify before the Committee. These attempts to work with the Committee have been flatly rejected. They didn’t like the results of the report, and now they want a redo,” Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement on Wednesday. “Faced with Chairman Nadler’s blatant abuse of power, and at the Attorney General’s request, the President has no other option than to make a protective assertion of executive privilege.”

 

Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd sent a letter to Nadler on Wednesday morning saying the same.

 

“We are disappointed that you have rejected the Department of Justice’s request to delay the vote of the Committee on the Judiciary on a contempt finding against the Attorney General this morning,” Boyd wrote, adding that the committee has “terminated our ongoing negotiations and abandoned the accommodation process” related to the subpoena.

 

“Unfortunately, rather than allowing negotiations to continue, you scheduled an unnecessary contempt vote, which you refused to postpone to allow additional time for compromise,” Boyd wrote. “Accordingly, this is to advise you that the President has asserted executive privilege over the entirety of the subpoenaed materials. As I indicated in my letter to you last night, this protective assertion of executive privilege ensures the President’s ability to make a final decision whether to assert privilege following a full review of these materials.”

 

In a separate letter sent Tuesday, Boyd stressed that Barr already has offered a select group of congressional Democrats the opportunity to review a “minimally redacted” version of the report, “excluding only grand jury information,” but Nadler and Democrats have refused to “even review” the materials.

 

WHITE HOUSE BLOCKS MCGAHN FROM PRODUCING DOCUMENTS SUBPOENAED BY HOUSE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE

 

The vote to hold Barr in contempt escalates the standoff between the Justice Department and congressional Democrats over Mueller’s full report, and over Barr’s failure to appear for a scheduled hearing before the committee last week after disagreements over the format of the hearing. Democrats on the committee wanted to have their staff question Barr. The Justice Department wanted only members to do the questioning. Barr did not appear, and the committee held a meeting with an empty witness chair.

 

Democrats have blasted Barr for weeks over his handling of the special counsel’s report. Barr initially released a four-page summary of Mueller’s findings, announcing in late March that the special counsel found no evidence of collusion between members of the Trump campaign and Russia during the 2016 presidential election. Mueller did not come to a conclusion on whether the president obstructed justice, but Barr said the evidence was not sufficient to charge the president with such an offense.

 

While Democrats have criticized Barr for that swift conclusion, they have sought the completely unredacted version of the report in a bid to learn more about what information Mueller gathered regarding the obstruction probe. The report released publicly last month had redactions covering sensitive sources and methods, grand jury material, and other areas to protect the reputational interests of “peripheral players” in the investigation.

 

While Democrats have complained about the DOJ’s redactions in the publicly available report, however, Barr and his deputies have countered that they’ve made available to select members a version with minimal redactions — and Democrats have declined to look at it.

 

“Unfortunately, the Committee has responded to our accommodation efforts by escalating its unreasonable demands and scheduling a committee vote to recommend that the Attorney General be held in contempt of Congress,” Boyd wrote.

Justice being served on Obama officials?


BHO Spying Nixonian Lying Crook toon

In a hopefully tip-of-the-iceberg moment, it has been disclosed publicly that Obama former White House counsel Gregory Craig is to be indicted for crooked connection to the Ukraine in 2012. The hope is all the Obama Administration and Crooked Hillary Campaign staffers that actually broke the law will finally have to pay the piper for illegal activities.

 

With that in mind, the blog Ares and Athena posted a story that begins with Gregory Craig info but then leads into speculation of more indictments. Adding to the speculation is the public Congressional testimony by AG William Barr that the DOJ is looking into the Obama Administration spying on the Trump Campaign.

Are More Indictments of Obama Officials Coming?

Yesterday we learned that Gregory Craig, the former White House counsel for Barack Obama, expects to be indicted on criminal charges for lobbying he did for the Ukrainian government back in 2012. The case against Craig originated from the Mueller investigation. Craig was not White House Counsel at the time, but between this and Attorney General William Barr’s revelation that he believes the Obama administration spied on the Trump campaign and that it is being investigated, it’s hard not feel as though the tide is turning, and we might start seeing Obama officials finally get put under the microscope for various acts of corruption.
