    An American POTUS can LEGALLY authorize electronic surveillance 'without a court order...to acquire foreign intelligence information for periods of up to one year’. Yes, it's true. Obama had legal authorization to by-pass the normal court vetting process. 4. Such power lies in 50 U.S. Code § 1802 -

    If the Justice Department and FBI are, as we've been told incessantly over the past year, not merely patriots but consummate professionals incapable of being distracted by partisanship or petty Washington intrigues, why are Donald Trump's antagonists freaking out over the fact that an inspector general will assess whether political motivation tainted an investigation into the president's campaign? The American people should get a full accounting of what transpired during 2016. Isn't that what we've been hearing since the election? You believe President Trump is corrupt. We get it. But surely anyone who alleges to be concerned about the sanctity...

    3.43min video at link. Hans Von Spakovsky (Screenshot) Former Justice Department (DOJ) official Hans Von Spakovsky says it’s illegal and unconstitutional for the DOJ and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to refuse to provide President Donald Trump and Congress with details of their Trump-Russia investigation’s use of a spy in Trump’s presidential campaign. As the nation’s top law enforcement officer, Trump – and anyone working for him - have the indisputable right to anything they want to know about the Russia-Collusion investigation, Spakovsky explained in a Fox News interview Friday morning: “The president is the chief law enforcement officer of...

    We are hearing a lot these days about how documents reluctantly provided to congress by the Department of Justice and the FBI have been heavily redacted, rendering them almost indecipherable. The operative word here is “almost.” There have been enough unredacted words or phrases in the documents submitted to congressional authorities to suspect one of the biggest cover-ups in American history. The FBI is inadvertently leaving small breadcrumbs exposed for congressmen to seek further information and question why this or that redaction was made, if it appears there is no reason why the redaction should be classified given the context...

    Redactions, the blacked-out portions that appear in many government documents, are making it difficult for Congress to do its oversight work, says Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa). In a letter [1] to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein on Wednesday, Grassley wrote: "Please provide unredacted copies of all text messages" between FBI agents Peter Strzok and Lisa Page "to the Committee no later than June 6, 2018." Grassley said some of the redactions "may contain relevant information relating to the Committee's ongoing investigation into the manner in which the Department of Justice and FBI handled the Clinton and Russia...

    The Department of Justice, according to the department’s Office of Inspector General [1], has declined to prosecute a now-retired FBI special agent (SA) who mishandled classified information, gave misleading testimony, had “contacts with several individuals appeared to be designed to improperly influence their prospective testimony” and provided the IG with false information. “Criminal prosecution of the SA was declined,” the IG reported in an investigative summary of the case [1]. According to the Justice Department, the law governing inspector generals requires an IG to refer a case to a federal prosecutor when the IG discovers reasonable grounds to believe that...

    A top Senate Republican is challenging the Justice Department over extensive redactions made in files showing text messages between anti-Trump FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page. Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, drew particular attention to one text that suggested the Obama “White House is running this,” in reference to an unspecified investigation. But, like in so many of the files, a name was redacted and the context was unclear, though one report suggests that was related to the Russia probe. In a letter sent Wednesday to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, Grassley called for all redactions to...

    President Trump demanded "total transparency" Wednesday ahead of a meeting between top law enforcement officials and congressional Republicans demanding Russia probe documents. "They'll all be in the room tomorrow. We'll see what happens. I want total transparency," Trump said on the South Lawn of the White House. "You have to have transparency." On Monday, Trump tasked chief of staff John Kelly with organizing a meeting between FBI, Justice Department, and intelligence community representatives to provide congressional Republicans documents on an FBI informant linked to the Trump campaign.

    What happens when a country’s super-secret spy agencies are filled with liars, dirty tricksters and #Resisters?  They will trip over their own stories, lose key “conversations,” misplace or otherwise refuse to divulge important documents.Ultimately they will reveal themselves for the nefarious, lying weasels they are. The only question is will the MSM report it?Not if they have anything to say about it. As inconvenient facts gurgle to the surface… the MSM is busily ignoring them as they calculate how best to shift the narrative from “collusion” to “coverup” in delirious hope that somebody embedded in the Deep State’s war on...

"SPECTATOR2017 disqusisass • a day ago There's an easy way to get rid of Sessions now... 1) Appoint Matt Gaetz as #3 at DOJ. (That position is available because Rachel Brand, an associate of Mueller, resigned months ago). 2) Fire Rosenstein for filing a perjured FISA affidavit and other crimes. 3) Sessions said he will resign if Rosey is fired. 4) Gaetz then become head of DOJ, replacing Rosenstein. He also becomes Mueller's boss."

    When Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into Donald Trump’s presidential campaign began more than a year ago, pundits on the left gleefully predicted that it would lead to the downfall of the president. In an ironic twist, it looks more and more likely that it is the Obama-era Department of Justice that has some serious explaining to do, while President Trump may be vindicated. Last week, several major sources broke a story that could be the Watergate of our time — but with Obama, not Trump, playing the part of Nixon. Both The New York Times and The Washington Post...

    Stefan Halper is officially missing. And he has been for a long time. The shocking revelation adds more intrigue to an already mysterious and illicit story unfolding inside the FBI. Snip~~ It would appear someone with top access in the FBI likely tipped Halper off in the fall of 2017 to go underground, or perhaps something worse is at play. “He went underground,” one federal law enforcement source said. “We don’t think he is dead but he might be playing dead.”

    Who is the FBI spy that was trying to glean information on the Trump campaign? Well, reportedly, it’s longtime CIA operative Stefan Halper. And no, it wasn’t leaked. If this is true, and most likely it is, there’s enough public information on him, along with the news media leaving a trail of breadcrumbs that confirmed his identity. They were as subtle as a sledgehammer.Last week, it was reported that the FBI had spied on the Trump campaign during the 2016 election. It was later revealed by Axios that Halper had tried to get a top-level job in the administration...

    “If we had a real attorney general,” Stone mused, as he discussed the explosive revelation that the FBI hired CIA-linked Cambridge professor Stefan Halper to surveil several members of the Trump campaign with Breitbart News Deputy Political Editor Amanda House. Stone then referred to Sessions as a “comatose Keebler Elf” and “a man who must be removed and sent back Alabama.” “He’s either compromised or doddering,” Stone told House. “I believe he’s compromised. I believe he discussed with Carter Page removing sanctions on the Russians and that is what is being held over his head.”

    President Trump is meeting Monday with Senior FBI, DOJ and DNI officials at the White House to discuss classified documentation requested by the House Intelligence Committee and whether or not members of the Obama administration authorized the use of a long-time informant of the CIA and FBI to investigate members of his 2016 campaign. The meeting came on the heels of the President’s demand Sunday for the Justice Department to investigate the FBI’s operation, known as Crossfire Hurricane, which included surveillance of members of the Trump campaign. And this meeting is crucial because it will be a major opportunity for...

    Revelations that an FBI informant insinuated himself into the Trump campaign have led some congressional investigators to rethink their theories on how and why former President Barack Obama's Justice Department began investigating the 2016 Trump presidential effort. Most reporting has focused on the July 31, 2016, creation of a document formally marking the beginning of the FBI counterintelligence probe targeting the Trump campaign. The document, known as the electronic communication, or EC, is said to have focused on the case of George Papadopoulos, the peripheral Trump adviser who has pleaded guilty to lying to special counsel Robert Mueller about his...

This came just hours after President Trump demanded a review of whether Obama’s Deep State FBI did indeed spy on his campaign. I hereby demand, and will do so officially tomorrow, that the Department of Justice look into whether or not the FBI/DOJ infiltrated or surveilled the...
