  • [Vanity] Sen Schumer subverted the intelligence agencies to incidentally (on purpose) surveil Trump.

    3/23/17 | [Total Vanity]
    Trump jokingly told a rally crowd he hoped that Putin/Russia would find and leak Hillary's missing emails. Nobody took it seriously. Everybody knows Trump was joking, but born out of this was the charge that Trump was in collusion with Putin to cheat the election. This only works because the MSM facilitates this. Chuck Schumer threatened Trump when he said that the intelligence agencies will make life difficult for him. This was sinister in nature -- compared to Trumps levity. It's pretty clear now that Schumer's threat was more than a threat. It was marching orders.

    WikiLeaks on Thursday released new Central Intelligence Agency documents, showing it developed malware to infect “factory fresh” iPhones, while the anti-secrecy organization claimed it has been bugging them since 2008. “While CIA assets are sometimes used to physically infect systems in the custody of a target,” said WikiLeaks in a statement, “it is likely that many CIA physical access attacks have infected the targeted organization’s supply chain including by interdicting mail orders and other shipments (opening, infecting, and resending) leaving the United States or otherwise.” The statement came before WikiLeaks released a new portion as part of the Vault 7...

The dart from this secret CIA weapon can penetrate clothing and leave nothing but a tiny red dot on the skin. On penetration of the deadly dart, the individual targeted for assassination may feel as if bitten by a mosquito, or they may not feel anything at all. The poisonous dart completely disintegrates upon entering the target.

Comey's confirmation in testimony before the House Intelligence Committee that the Trump campaign was the subject of a U.S. counterintelligence investigation was a revelation that could shadow the Trump presidency.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), which operates under the Department of Justice (DOJ), should have stopped the traffickers—members of the Los Zetas organization—long before the Immigration and Customs (ICE) agents were ambushed in Mexico with firearms smuggled south of the border thanks to a once-secret Obama administration gun-running operation.

    1. June 2016: FISA request. The Obama administration files a request with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) to monitor communications involving Donald Trump and several advisers. The request, uncharacteristically, is denied. 2. July 2016: The Russia joke. Wikileaks releases emails from the Democratic National Committee that show an effort to prevent Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) from winning the presidential nomination. In a press conference, Donald Trump refers to Hillary Clinton’s own missing emails, joking: “Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 e-mails that are missing.” That remark becomes the basis for accusations by Clinton...

    Whose name is next to be added to the notorious list of government leakers? The CIA is trying to answer that question right now.

The contractor told Fox News that CCI has long maintained an internal database of...
