  • No Holds Barred: Barr and Durham Must Investigate Obama & Biden Too

    The Epoch Times ^ | 25 Jun, 2020 | Roger L. Simon
    Roughly a week ago Attorney General William Barr made two noteworthy comments in an interview with Fox’s Maria Bartiromo. The first was that we would likely learn some significant information from John Durham’s investigation into the provenance and conduct of the Russia probe by end of summer. The implication was that some people were going to be in legal jeopardy. Barr didn’t name them but we can imagine Messrs. Brennan, Comey, Clapper, Strzok, McCabe and so on could be among them. It’s also noteworthy how these same individuals have suddenly been less in the public eye, not appearing ad nauseam...

    The upcoming publication of former presidential adviser John Bolton's 600-page novel detailing his year and a half in the Trump Administration has mightily irked House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif). "This is too little, too late," she complained. "We gave him the chance to testify in our impeachment inquiry six months ago, but he refused. He could have saved the nation from the continued depredations of President Trump. Instead, he let this tyrant escape justice while he hoarded all the juicy bits for his book." In his defense, Bolton lambasted "the Speaker's myopia. Look, we both have the same objective: get...

    Yesterday morning Joe Concha tweeted out an article by Mike Morell, a former Deputy Director of the CIA from 2010-2013. Morell said, in essence,  "the only culprit in the Flynn ‘unmasking’ scandal is the Trump administration." I've never liked Morell. I always found him slimy and less than honest. Others have as well. During the Benghazi episode Morell was thought to be "lacking candor" to coin a phrase. Here is one take: After former acting CIA Director Mike Morell testified to the House Intelligence Committee that he is the one who changed the Benghazi talking points, Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-NH)...

    Some of the most high-profile figures of the Obama administration are among a list of officials Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) would like to subpoena as part of his investigation into the FBI's probe of Russian election meddling and the Trump campaign. The list, released by Johnson's office on Thursday night, comes after he scheduled a committee vote for June 4 to seek subpoena authority. Former FBI Director James Comey, former national security adviser Susan Rice, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and former CIA Director John Brennan are among dozens of officials Johnson will request authority to subpoena. "I...

    How does Watergate differ from Obamagate? Journalists led the charge to uncover the first. But now? Now journalists are leading the coverup of the second. J. Peder Zane has illustrated the media coverup exactly: “This week’s news that at least 39 Obama officials had unmasked Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn’s private conversations during the last month of their administration seemed a little shocking. Today, major media outlets are telling readers and viewers that the practice is “routine.” A CNN headline told readers, “Trump pushes 'Obamagate' conspiracy based on routine intel activity.” Obama’s Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, now a CNN...

    BERMAN: Asking for names [to be unmasked], nothing wrong with that. Unmasking in itself, nothing wrong with that. Leaking classified information — and by definition these phone calls were classified — that’s a problem, correct? CLAPPER: Absolutely, it is. BERMAN: And if anyone did leak the contents of these conversations with or without the name, that would be a problem, yes? CLAPPER: [connection ends] BERMAN: We’ve lost the shot. I wonder if we can at least get him on the phone to finish this. Let’s try to get Director Clapper back. All right, we’re gonna work on getting that shot...

    (flashback 5/27/2017) DOMESTIC ENEMIES UNDER JAMES CLAPPER DESTROYED THE CREDIBILITY OF THE U.S. INTELLIGENCE COMMUNITY The recent declassifying of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) Court review of the Inspector General’s (IG) investigation into the National Security Agency’s compliance with existing surveillance laws was eye-opening. Basically, the NSA failed miserably on all accounts, and this assessment includes the CIA. U.S. CITIZENS ARE BEING SURVEILLED AND RECORDED IN AN UNPRECEDENTED FASHION NEGATING THE FOURTH AMENDMENT RIGHTS OF AMERICANS. James Clapper was the head intelligence boss at the time this report was given in the late-fall of 2016. For the five years...

    Former Director of National Intelligence (DNI) James Clapper said Thursday it is “routine” to “unmask” American citizens who have been caught up in surveillance of foreign individuals as Republicans spark an uproar over allegations that officials spied on former national security adviser Michael Flynn. “Over the six and a half almost seven years when I served as DNI I would say perhaps once or twice a week perhaps,” Clapper said on CNN when asked how frequently he would request an American’s identity to be revealed. “It’s a routine thing. It’s appropriate and legitimate when you have a valid foreign intelligence...

    Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) says James Clapper, the former director of national intelligence, is high on the list of witnesses he wants to call before the committee as part of an investigation into the origins of the Obama administration’s Trump-Russia-Flynn probe. On Thursday, CNN's John Berman asked Clapper (a paid CNN contributor) what he would say to Sen. Graham: "Given my age demographic, I'd be happy to come after I've been vaccinated for COVID-19," Clapper said.

    RussiaGate is now a complete dead letter — but ObamaGate is taking its place. Just how far did the then-president go to cripple his successor? It’s now clear the Obama-Comey FBI and Justice Department never had anything more substantial than the laughable fiction of the Steele dossier to justify the “counterintelligence” investigation of the Trump campaign. Yet incessant leaks from that supposedly confidential probe wound up consuming the Trump administration’s first months in office — followed by the Bob Mueller-led special counsel investigation that proved nearly the “total witch hunt” that President Trump dubbed it. Information released as the Justice...

    The long-delayed release of testimony from the House Intelligence Committee has proved embarrassing for a variety of former Obama officials who have been extensively quoted on the allegedly strong evidence of collusion by the Trump campaign and the Russians. Figures like James Clapper, who is a CNN expert, long indicated that the evidence from the Obama Administration was strong and alarming. However, in testimony, Clapper denied seeing any such evidence. One of the most embarrassing is the testimony of Evelyn Farkas, a former Obama Administration official who was widely quoted in her plea to Congress to gather the evidence that...

    Previously withheld FBI documents related to the Agency's case against Gen. Michael Flynn were uncovered this week. On the one hand, exculpatory evidence that had been denied to Flynn's attorneys was revealed. On the other hand, an illegal plot designed to entrap the General was documented. James Comey, FBI Director at the time these illegal actions were taken, maintains that "these were standard procedures. When the Agency has an opportunity to take down a bad guy, every option to accomplish the job is in play. We brainstormed a few ideas, got the okay on a course of action from President...

    As the news unfolds over how fmr NSA Michael Flynn was set up, many people are asking who gave the order to go after him and really Pres Trump since what was done to Flynn was to get to Trump. Fmr Dir of Nat’l Intel, James Clapper answered that question 4 times from May 2018 to Oct 2019 that is was fmr US president barack hussein obama who gave the order to spy on Trump. Why would Clapper do this as recently as Oct 8, 2019? Maybe because Clapper KNOWS AG Barr and US Atty Durham are going to get...

    While the news is inundated with stories about the COVID-19 pandemic, Inspector General of the Department of Justice Michael Horowitz issued a new report on the FISA program. His terse conclusion that "we do not have confidence in FBI policy compliance" grossly understated the gravity of the Agency's transgressions. The most alarming finding in this report is that 96% of the FISA applications requesting permission to spy on American citizens contained serious errors or omissions. These included "unverified, inaccurate, and inadequately supported allegations" that were used to get the FISA court to authorize the spying. James Comey, FBI Director overseeing...

    /theamericanreport.org ^ | 1/19/2020 | Mary Fanning and Alan Jones
    Former CIA Director James Woolsey, CIA Director John Brennan, and Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, worked in concert to frame President Donald Trump and President Trump’s National Security Advisor Lt. General Michael Flynn as “Russian agents.” General Flynn had become a “problem” for President Obama and for the Obama/Clinton Deep State intelligence apparatus. General Flynn had not only begun advising the Trump Campaign in February 2016, but also had called out President Obama’s “willful” decision to arm ISIS. On November 17, 2016, President-elect Trump named General Flynn to be White House national security adviser. Even as ISIS expanded across...

    I believe that if the full story is told about Obama-era political spying, Admiral Mike Rogers (former head of NSA) will emerge as a hero. Sources say Rogers has been cooperating with the ongoing Durham investigation. Look for significant developments in the case as we approach the 2020 election... Below is a Rogers timeline covering illegal spying using NSA data. This illegal use of data is a matter of record -- undisputed, but also largely unreported. The FISC (FISA court) report on this illegal use of data appeared in April 2017; the author is Rosemary Collyer, the head FISA judge....

    RETIRED ADM. MICHAEL ROGERS, former director of the National Security Agency, has been cooperating with the Justice Department’s probe into the origins of the counterintelligence investigation of the Trump presidential campaign’s alleged ties to Russia, according to four people familiar with Rogers’s participation. Rogers has met the prosecutor leading the probe, Connecticut U.S. Attorney John Durham, on multiple occasions, according to two people familiar with Rogers’s cooperation. While the substance of those meetings is not clear, Rogers has cooperated voluntarily, several people with knowledge of the matter said. Rogers, who retired in May 2018, did not respond to requests for...
