  • McCabe just made life tough for Comey and the special counsel

    The Hill ^ | Jonathan Turley
    Following his termination late Friday night, former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe declared that he was “singled out” after “unrelenting” attacks by President Trump and critics. McCabe’s objections are less than credible, given the virtually unprecedented recommendation of career officials to fire the one-time acting FBI director. However, McCabe may have rectified his “singled out” status with his long statement criticizing his termination: In the middle of it is a line that could be viewed as incriminating fired FBI director James Comey, not just in leaking sensitive information but also in lying to Congress. McCabe is accused of misleading investigators...

    Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) said on Sunday that President Trump is "floating trial balloons about derailing" special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation. Schumer added in a statement that Republicans have an obligation to ensure that the special counsel can continue his investigation into Russia's election interference and any ties between Trump's campaign and Moscow after the president questioned the makeup of Mueller’s team. "Our Republican colleagues, particularly the leadership, have an obligation to our country to stand up now and make it clear that firing Mueller is a red line for our democracy that cannot be crossed," the New...

    There was collusion in the election of 2016. It involved Russians, a British ex-spy, law firms, FBI agents, DOJ attorneys, an FBI director that prejudged evidence, an Attorney General that had an unethical meeting with the spouse of a target, FISA warrants obtained on faulty information that stemmed from political sources, a Deputy Director whose wife received monetary support in an election, an FBI director who lied to Congress, an FBI Deputy Director who lied to the Justice Department’s Inspector General, loads of classified materials that were mishandled and criminally passed to those without clearances, and partisan hacks spearheading inquiries...

    President Trump asserted on Saturday that special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia should never have been opened in the first place. "The Mueller probe should never have been started in that there was no collusion and there was no crime," Trump wrote on Twitter. "It was based on fraudulent activities and a Fake Dossier paid for by Crooked Hillary and the DNC, and improperly used in FISA COURT for surveillance of my campaign. WITCH HUNT!" The Mueller probe should never have been started in that there was no collusion and there was...

    Former FBI Director James Comey shot a message at President Trump after his former deputy Andrew McCabe was fired, warning that "the American people will hear my story very soon," "And they can judge for themselves who is honorable and who is not," he added in a terse tweet. Comey has a book coming out next month and a planned media tour to go along with it.

    As the House Intelligence Committee on Monday announced its findings that there was no collusion between Team Trump and Russia, more evidence of the collusion between deep state swamp creatures and a disloyal media to undermine the presidency of Donald Trump was also revealed. James Clapper has been revealed to be both a perjurer and a criminal leaker of classified information to the press. The cynicism of Americans regarding integrity and accountability in government grew as swamp thing James Clapper avoided his part of the bog being drained as the statute of limitations for prosecuting his perjury before Congress regarding...

    The coup attempt against President Trump is rapidly collapsing, but the deep state is still in cover-up mode. In this article for The Hill, Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton discussed the FBI’s continuing protection of former Director James Comey and Judicial Watch’s efforts to penetrate the truth. — As the James Comey saga continues to unfold, the James Comey legend continues to unravel. The more that is learned about Comey’s involvement in the deep state’s illicit targeting of President Trump, the more reason the American people must question both Comey’s motives and his management as director of the FBI, the...

    Another guest said Trump should be removed from office "in handcuffs" MSNBC guest and marketing expert Donny Deutsch said Monday that President Donald Trump will win reelection "in a landslide" if he is not removed from office before 2020. Deutsch joined the panel on MSNBC's "Deadline: White House" to discuss the investigation of Russian involvement in the 2016 presidential election. Host Nicolle Wallace and the panel discussed the Russia investigation and how the Trump administration is attempting an "ongoing attack" on the FBI. Deutsch then lambasted the "absurdity" and "obscenity" of the way the Trump administration has functioned, but Sirius...
  • Where Is the Democratic Outrage Over Spying on Americans?

    02/17/2018 6:58:43 AM PST · by Kaslin · 13 replies ^ | February 17, 2018 | Thomas J. Farnan
    Under the Constitution, there are three branches of government. The FBI is not one of them. Instead, the FBI was created to assist the president in his job to enforce laws. Members of the FBI are called “agents” because of their agency relationship with the president. During World War II and then the Red Scare, the FBI's mission expanded to gather intelligence against spies. Here, too, the FBI was assisting the Commander in Chief. Even the word “intelligence” connotes this fact. The purpose was to help the president act intelligently against domestic threats. The FBI’s domestic intelligence gathering function caused...

    Intelligence officials can selectively release classified information to trusted journalists while withholding the same information from other citizens who request it through open records laws, CIA lawyers argued Wednesday. ....The judge in the case appeared to find Johnson’ argument compelling. In a court order last month, Chief Judge Colleen McMahon of the Southern District of New York said FOIA laws do not authorize limited disclosure, to favored journalists or otherwise. “In this case, CIA voluntarily disclosed to outsiders information that it had a perfect right to keep private,” she wrote. “There is absolutely no statutory provision that authorizes limited disclosure...

    If there is an obstruction of justice case to be made against the president in the Trump-Russia affair, James Comey is in the middle of it. President Trump's decision to fire the FBI director is often cited as Exhibit A for obstruction, and the foundation for that case is a set of seven memos Comey wrote describing conversations he had with the president between Jan. 6 and April 11, 2017. The memos are critically important. Portions of them have been leaked to the press, given to a Comey friend, discussed in congressional testimony, and read by a few Capitol Hill...

    Synopsis: This is certainly one of THE most important stories I've ever done. Within the last hour we received what appears to be an official British TOP SECRET signals intelligence document dated Nov. 17, 2016, showing that President Obama and his National Security Advisor, Susan Rice were the ones who first requested electronic spying on the candidate Donald Trump, just 7 days after Trump won the Republican nomination in late August, 2016. The secret document, which has no redactions, was sent by Robert Hannigan, the Director of GCHQ, to Boris Johnson, the British Secretary of State for Foreign & Commonwealth...

    Hmmm… you don’t suppose she’s thinking of running for President, do you? Naw. Perish the thought. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) showed up on Sixty Minutes this weekend and was happy to serve up the usual round of hints suggesting some impeachment/removal talk which is always sure to spice up any slow political news cycle. Of course, we’ve had Democrats calling for Trump to resign since before he was even sworn into office, but the reasons change from month to month. So what is it this time? Ah, yes… it’s the #MeToo movement. (The Hill) Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) said Sunday...

Victory is certain… the trench was ignited… the enemy funneled themselves into the valley… all bait was taken… everything from here on out is simply mopping up the details. All suspicions confirmed. Why has Devin Nunes been so confident? Why did all GOP HPSCI members happily allow the Democrats to create a 10-page narrative? All questions are answered.
  • Strzok May Have Used His Cell Phone In A SCIF, Himself Breaking Classified-Info Rules

    The Daily Caller ^ | Feb 8 2018 | Luke Rosiak
    Released texts between Peter Strzok, the FBI agent who ran the investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s email server, and his lover, FBI attorney Lisa Page, reveal the strong possibility that Strzok used his cell phone in a SCIF — a strict violation of protecting classified information. Such a breach would compromise Strzok’s ability to probe Clinton for mishandling classified info and show a lack of awareness about security breaches, which is what he was tasked to investigate. The text messages that the Senate released Wednesday show that Strzok texted his mistress on Aug. 11, 2016, “We’re in...

    The news media labeled Nixon's scandal 'WATERGATE'. It's time to assign a name to the massive scandals perpetrated by Team Obama aimed at OVERTHROWING OUR DULY-ELECTED GOVERNMENT! This is a textbook example of a BLOODLESS COUP so I hereby label it 'COUPGATE'. We recall the IRS scandal where Obama attempted to shutter conservative groups and their efforts to win elections. Lerner abused her power by illegally targeting Republicans and Koskinen lied to Congress and destroyed key evidence subpoenaed by Congress. But that's small potatoes compared to the more vast and multi-agency COUPGATE conspiracy by Obama's White House, FBI, DOJ, CIA...
