    Remember, Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes is first up; closely coordinating with House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte; closely coordinating with Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley; and all of them coordinating with the DOJ Office of Inspector General Michael Horowitz. This is a long developed plan. In order to carry out the entire reform operation, communication is made through public letters. Sunlight is part of the strategy. Questioning each other publicly and answering each other publicly is part of the strategy… the media is not used to this. Deception needs whispers. Deception doesn’t like transparency…. Brilliant strategery, by golly.

    Within all of the discoveries around the DOJ/FBI “Trump Operation” we are often questioned why former CIA Director John Brennan is not a specific focus. The reason is quite simple… Unlike some of the other conspirators, John Brennan recognized much earlier it would be in his best interests to have an exit plan to get him away from the inherent legal ramifications of the DOJ/FBI operation. Brennan was simply smarter about covering his tracks. Early in our research we pointed this out – May of 2017. Keep in mind, all of the referenced positions and statements come from a position...

    House Republicans are hopeful that a four-page memo allegedly containing "jaw-dropping" revelations about U.S. government surveillance abuses will soon be made public. Rep. Dave Joyce, a Republican from Ohio, told Fox News on Monday that the intelligence committee plans to work on releasing the document but warned that once Americans see it, they’ll “be surprised how bad it is.” The process of releasing the memo could take up to 19 congressional working days which puts its release around mid-March. The document’s release would first need approval from House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., who can decide to bring the...

    Representative Ron DeSantis (R-FL), House Judiciary Committee (Team Goodlatte) member, appears with Lou Dobbs to discuss “missing” FBI texts: Note: Keep pounding the drums (it’s fun), but remember, there’s no rush to a Special Counsel because we want the “small group” to testify (to Nunes) first. Nunes, Goodlatte, Grassley and Horowitz are burying those who are due to be questioned with complex considerations of self-preservation prior to their appearances.

    Reps. Trey Gowdy and John Ratcliffe join FNC's Martha McCallum to talk about another newly released text message between FBI agents Peter Strzok and Lisa Page. This time, Strzok implies a "secret society" of federal agents worked to prevent Donald Trump from becoming president. "It is possible these text messages that are missing, perhaps they really were lost. Perhaps it is another strange coincidence," Ratcliffe said. "It is harder and harder for us to explain one strange coincidence after another." "We know that Strzok and Page had an intense anti-Trump bias," he said. "And that's OK, so long as they...

    Republican Sen. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin is anything but a bomb thrower. So it’s striking that, on Tucker Carlson’s show this evening, Johnson—speaking of the actions of former FBI director James Comey and Obama AG Loretta Lynch—said that there was “deep-seated corruption at the highest levels of the FBI.” In support of his allegation of deep-seated corruption, Johnson, chairman of the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs, cited: Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    The State Department announced a new $600,000 taxpayer-funded study that suggests "ideals of masculinity" in Kenya are contributing to terrorism.The department's Bureau of Counterterrorism is seeking a nonprofit group to "explore gender identities of boys and men in Kenya." The grant proposal states that men being "tough, heterosexual, aggressive, unemotional, and achieving" can make them vulnerable to joining Islamic extremist groups."Gender is increasingly recognized as an essential aspect to understanding and countering violent extremism throughout the world," the State Department said. "To date, research and interventions on gender in Kenya have predominantly focused on the role of women and girls...

    Axios ^ | 1/22/18 | Jonathan Swan
    Attorney General Jeff Sessions — at the public urging of President Donald Trump — has been pressuring FBI Director Christopher Wray to fire Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, but Wray threatened to resign if McCabe was removed, according to three sources with direct knowledge. Wray's resignation under those circumstances would have created a media firestorm. The White House — understandably gun-shy after the Comey debacle — didn’t want that scene, so McCabe remains. Sessions told White House Counsel Don McGahn about how upset Wray was about the pressure on him to fire McCabe, and McGahn told Sessions this issue wasn’t...

    Additional text messages sent and received by disgraced FBI agent Peter Strzok were recently handed over to Congress, reports the AP.  Buried in the report are text messages between Strzok and FBI lawyer Lisa Page discussing how hackers likely obtained an email exchange between then-President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. The exchange was later covered-up by the FBI after the incident was removed from Comey’s closing statement on Clinton’s email investigation. AP reports: One of the messages references a change in language to Comey’s statement closing out the email case involving Clinton, Trump’s Democratic opponent in the 2016 presidential election. While an earlier draft of the statement...

    Washington Examiner ^ | 1/22/18 | Steven Nelson
    Computer forensics experts are questioning the supposed loss of five months of text messages between two FBI officials who privately disparaged President Trump before helping investigate his campaignÂ’s possible links to Russia.Some experts say the messages, sent during a turbulent period between Dec. 14, 2016, to May 17, 2017, may not be gone forever. The missing messages between Peter Strzok, a senior FBI official, and alleged mistress Lisa Page immediately precede special counsel Robert MuellerÂ’s May 17 appointment to investigate Russia's role in the 2016 election. Strzok was taken off MuellerÂ’s team in August after discovery of his messages with...
