Posted on 06/24/2019 8:36:22 AM PDT by jeb184
It used to be a truism of American politics that we only have one President at a time. That there was a strong tradition ensuring the peaceful transition of power from one administration to the other. President Barack Obama is obliterating those quaint traditions of American democracy. Indeed he seems to have set up a government in exile, in Washington DC, while he seeks to undermine and sabotage the sitting President.

Obama needed to be jailed before. He needs to be imprisoned even more now!
Never heard of CDN.
Welcome to FR.
After they hounded on Trump in October 2016 about accepting he results of the election now they are doubling down by hounding on whether Trump will go peacefully after he loses the 2020 election.
Projectionism and transference.
While I love the article, the above is either a glaring error or a new revelation, as this is the first time I have heard that Andrew Weissmann had any involvement in obtaining FISA warrants against Carter Page.
Did I somehow miss something?
And, in addition, this law school constitutional lecturer and his attorney wife should be held liable in civil court for - right out the dictionary:
"using a false identity to defraud the taxpayers of hundreds of thousands of dollars in cash and benefits over a period of 8 years and continuing to this date"
Explains the goofy OMG face on the goon-faced Halfrican when he met the impressive president-elect.
The dirt Hillary was supposed to sweep under the rug is now in the hands of the man the Halfrican tried to destroy.
"Howm I gonna get out of the mess Im in?"
"I know, well invent Russian collusion......lie like crazy.......setup Trump to take the blame.
The Halfrican has so much to hide. He lived the times of Anything Goes.....those glorious, heady days when Hillary
was a shoo-in, ready to carry out his third term. Now its time to face the music.
At his contentious hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Attorney General William Barr dropped a big hint about his investigation into the conduct of the Trump-Russia investigation. "Many people seem to assume that the only intelligence collection that occurred was a single confidential informant and a FISA warrant," Barr said. "I would like to find out whether that is, in fact, true. It strikes me as a fairly anemic effort if that was the counterintelligence effort designed to stop the threat as it is being represented."
Here is what he meant:
<><>There has been a lot of discussion on the right about the FBI's use of a confidential informant, an England-based college professor named Stefan Halper, to spy on some Trump campaign figures, including the sometime foreign policy volunteer advisers George Papadopoulos and Carter Page.
<><>There has also been talk about the FBI's use of a so-called FISA warrant -- a court-approved permission to wiretap -- against Page.
<><> There was also speculation about other possible FBI surveillance, but the Halper operation and Page FISA case were the only ones definitely known.
So Barr was saying that if the FBI really took the Trump-Russia matter seriously, if they thought it was a threat to the republic, would that be all they would do? No other wiretaps or other surveillance? No other confidential informants? Nothing? Given that Barr was already looking into the question, his phrasing suggested he suspected there was more.
<><> Sure enough, just days later, The New York Times reported that in the summer of 2016 the FBI sent an undercover agent, a woman who went by the alias Azra Turk, to London to pose as Halper's research assistant and tease information out of Papadopoulos. (The Times was so reluctant to call Turk a spy that it referred to her, in a headline, as a "cloaked investigator.")
So now there are Halper, Turk and the Page FISA warrant. If they represent the totality of the FBI's surveillance, that would still be a pretty anemic response to what some in the bureau viewed as a full-scale Russian attack on American democracy.
So the key question of the Barr investigation will be: Is there more? The answer is not publicly known. But consider this: The Mueller report noted that on Aug. 2, 2017, the Justice Department authorized the special counsel to investigate specific allegations against four Trump campaign officials: Page and Papadopoulos, plus former campaign chairman Paul Manafort and former security adviser Michael Flynn. Is it reasonable to believe that the FBI pulled out the big investigative guns, the spies and the wiretap warrant, against the two smaller figures -- Page and Papadopoulos -- and not against the far more important figures of Manafort and Flynn? Or if not against them, perhaps against others?
It wasn't that long ago, on April 10, when, during another Hill appearance, Barr set off a firestorm by declaring that "spying did occur" on the Trump campaign. Democrats pounced; how dare Barr call the FBI's investigation "spying"?
"Perpetuating conspiracy theories is beneath the office of attorney general," tweeted Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer.
It is abundantly clear that Barr was correct. He was careful to add that the unknown factor about the spying was "whether it was adequately predicated" -- that is, whether the FBI had a legitimate reason to do it. But there was no doubt that spying happened. Now, the question is whether there was more than is now publicly known. Congressional investigators are anxiously awaiting the results of an investigation into at least some of the surveillance by Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz. That report is thought to be coming in the next couple of months. They are also watching to see what Barr will investigate on his own. Both are deeply important efforts. Just as the public needed to know what is in the Mueller report, it needs to know about the FBI's secret political operations in the 2016 campaign.
Let a SEAL Team deal with all these bastards.
Guber Jelly-Belly Prickster (IL-Demented) greased the way to have the new Soetoro Lie-Barry to be built in Chiraq. It will house the war room and an army of staff for the Trump Resistance Movement, and will likely employ many Ill-Annoy pols likely to including RINOs who supported Prickster’s campaign. The question is: Will the Soetoro Lie-Barry have toilets, or will they follow the lead of San Francisco and Los Angeles and just poop in the streets?
Lol. spying on Trump has got endorsed by neocon and GOPe.
DOJ can do nothing about it.
Feel sorry for Jeff Sessions.
Obama needed to be jailed before. He needs to be imprisoned even more now!
These ultimate political acts of treason by Obozo depict a brazen criminal who has gotten away with every crime in his past and now believes he is untouchable. A message for Durham: Do not let this SOB escape U.S. jurisdiction.
SEALs are awesome, but they cannot kill the soul.
He has no choice-he and HRC (and a huge chunk of the DC Deep State) were accepting “monies” =bribes from everyone overseas to keep the spice flowing.
Does anyone ever wonder what Valerie Jarrett is doing living with the Obamas?
Ofail and Kerry need their passports revoked.
