    Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), the House Judiciary Committee chairman, said Sunday that Nellie Ohr, the wife of Justice Department official Bruce Ohr, is cooperating with the committee and will testify in October. “Nellie Ohr is cooperating. We have a date for her appearance before the committee for an interview on Oct. 19," Goodlatte said on Fox News's "Sunday Morning Futures." Goodlatte's comments come after Republicans last week threatened to subpoena Nellie Ohr after a deal fell apart that would have led to her testimony last week. The Ohrs have come under GOP scrutiny for their ties to a controversial dossier...

    “How did they [Britain, Australia] get access to the FISA documents that Congress and the American people have not been given?” Back on February 23, 2018, the CFP posted an article entitled “Christopher Steele, MI6, and the Trump Dossier.” The post closed as follows: “Today, the public narrative of Christopher Steele’s association with the Trump Dossier reads like this:

    WASHINGTON—President Trump postponed the declassification and release of sensitive documents related to the investigation into his campaign’s links to Russian election interference, saying the matter would go to the Justice Department’s internal watchdog for further investigation. In a Friday morning tweet, Mr. Trump said the inspector general of the Justice Department would “review these documents on an expedited basis,” backing away from a previously announced plan to make public a secret surveillance warrant and the text messages of top law-enforcement officials. “I met with the DOJ concerning the declassification of various UNREDACTED documents. They agreed to release them but stated...

  • (VANITY) Explanation of why the Trump de-classification is important

    09/19/2018 6:08:31 AM PDT · by rlmorel · 39 replies
    There have been multiple threads with posts that demonstrate that many people don't see the importance (and just as often or even more so, the futility) of President Trump's decision to declassify the FISA applications and FBI interview related documents. For reference, the FISA applications are referred to as 702 documents and FBI interviews are known as 302 documents. So. Why is this declassification important? It is vitally important for two main reasons: First, it is going to demonstrate Media complicity in the propagandizing of this "Russian Collusion" hoax perpetrated by various entities and people throughout the government. These documents...

    The Department of Justice (DOJ), FBI and Office of the Director of National Intelligence are reportedly expected to propose redactions to a series of documents related to the Russia investigation that President Trump ordered to be declassified this week. Bloomberg News reported on Wednesday that the agencies are currently doing a methodical review of the documents. There is no official timeline on when their evaluation of the sensitive documents will be finished. But the news outlet, citing sources familiar with the process, noted that the FBI and the DOJ plan on submitting their proposed redactions to the Office of the...

    Leading congressional Democrats are looking to stall the process to release documents related to the Russia investigation, which President Donald Trump ordered declassified on Monday. Reps. Nancy Pelosi and Adam Schiff and Sens. Chuck Schumer and Mark Warner, sent a letter Tuesday asking Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, FBI Director Christopher Wray and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats to provide an “immediate briefing” to the Gang of Eight before declassifying and releasing the documents. The four Democrats expressed “profound alarm” at Trump’s order to declassify the records. Trump ordered the Justice Department and Office of the Director of National...

    President Donald Trump showed no signs of backing off his highly unprecedented order to declassify various documents and text messages related to the Russia investigation Tuesday, saying he wants it done for "transparency." The move, which has prompted renewed unease about the increasing politicization of intelligence materials, is likely to further inflame tensions between the President and intelligence and law enforcement officials, who have been the target of presidential Twitter tirades and who have voiced concerns in the past about potentially jeopardizing sources and methods.

    U.S. intelligence officials, blindsided by President Donald Trump's order that they make public highly sensitive files in the Russia investigation, are hoping the White House will allow them to conduct a formal declassification review and damage assessment before they are forced to release the documents, current and former officials tell NBC News. Senior executives at the FBI, Justice Department and Office of the Director of National intelligence were scrambling Tuesday to respond after being taken by surprise by a White House press release Monday directing them to release classified material they had previously determined should not be made public.

    House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes said Sunday that he plans to release transcripts of interviews with around 70 witnesses in the Trump-Russia probe within the next few weeks. “We believe that the depositions that we took, I think for nearly about 70 people those need to be published, and they need to be published I think before the election,” Nunes said in an interview on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures.” (RELATED: House Intel Committee Releases Long-Awaited Report On Trump-Russia Collusion) “By published I mean put out for the American people to review, so that they can...

    A few days ago, September 13th, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes was given the Keeper of the Flame Award in Washington DC. Within his acceptance speech Chairman Nunes discusses the significance of this time in U.S. history. In the days and months following Watergate, the HPSCI was given specific rules within their legislative branch oversight, which actually became the most significant tools -utilized for the first time- to uncover intelligence abuses by the former administration. Additionally, Chairman Nunes expands on the “next steps.”

    Amid a renewed push to release the full, unredacted FISA warrant applications against former Trump campaign aide Carter Page, House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) warns that Democrats and the mainstream media will be “frightened” by what Americans will see. The Justice Department released mostly redacted versions of four FISA applications against Page in July. The unredacted portions showed the FBI heavily relied on the infamous Christopher Steele intelligence dossier, which contains unverified and salacious information about President Donald Trump. The FBI had maintained they mostly relied on intelligence separate of the dossier. What did Nunes say? Speaking at...

    It's déjà vu all over again, in Yogi Berra's memorable expression: senior unelected FBI officials conspiring with the Washington Post and New York Times to drive a Republican president from office. Kudos to Jim Hoft of Gateway Pundit for spotting a 2014 State Department email from SecState Hillary's aide Sid Blumenthal that was declassified and released in 2015. In it, Blumenthal states as a fact that Bob Woodward has been an "FBI asset" since the days of Deep Throat. See for yourself
