    The co-founder of the opposition research firm behind the Steele dossier, Glenn Simpson, will invoke his First and Fifth Amendment privileges to avoid testifying before Congress next week, his lawyer has told Congress. According to The Hill, Simpson’s attorney, Joshua Levy, told House Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. Bob Goodlatte that Simpson will not appear for a deposition because the congressional investigation “is not designed to discover the truth.” The Virginia Republican subpoenaed Simpson on Sept. 29 after Levy said his client would not appear voluntarily for an interview before members of the House Judiciary and House Oversight & Government Reform...

    Corrupt: As a showdown between the Deep State and POTUS Donald Trump over the declassification of FISA warrant documents sought during the Obama administration to spy on campaign adviser Carter Page appears in the offing, another bombshell development has been revealed. During an appearance on Sean Hannity’s nationally syndicated radio program Wednesday, investigative journalist Sara A. Carter and the host discussed details surrounding information that the FBI was keeping two sets of records regarding the Page warrant applications and other ‘Russia’-related documents. If true, that means the corruption within the FBI and Justice Department — at least during the Obama...

    Unconstitutional: You can always tell how desperate and panicked Democrats are about the disclosure of certain information to the public by the level of authoritarianism they are willing to engage in. And boy, are they panicked over POTUS Donald Trump’s intent to order the Justice Department to declassify all documents related to FISA warrant applications used by the Obama Deep State to spy on the president’s 2016 campaign. On Tuesday we reported that the president had ordered the declassification of those documents and what to look for; there are a lot of people who, if (and it’s a big ‘if’)...

    Light of Day: Late Monday POTUS Donald Trump ordered the release of unredacted FISA warrant applications “[a]t the request of a number of committees of Congress, and for reasons of transparency,” White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders announced after reports surfaced last month that POTUS was considering doing so. “The documents to be declassified also include 12 FBI reports on interviews with Justice Department official Bruce Ohr and all FBI reports of interviews prepared in connection with all other applications to surveil Carter Page,” as Fox News and other outlets reported. This was a long time coming. House Republicans, especially,...
  • FBI AGENT TOLD CONGRESS THE BUREAU USED LEAKED STORIES TO OBTAIN SPY WARRANTS

    An FBI special agent told Congress earlier in August that the bureau has used leaked news stories as justifications to obtain surveillance warrants against American citizens, a source familiar with the testimony tells The Daily Caller News Foundation. During a closed-door interview with the House Judiciary and House Oversight Committees on Friday, Special Agent Jonathan Moffa told congressional investigators that the FBI and Justice Department have leaked stories to the press and then used them to obtain warrants under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA). “He more or less admitted that the FBI/DOJ have previously leaked info to the press...

    FBI had actually paid Christopher Steele, the man who put together the infamous unverified dossier targeting President Donald Trump during the campaign, in 11 separate cash payments in 2016. This was despite being admonished in February 2016 and despite the fact that he was being paid with money from the Democrats that went through the law firm Perkins Coie to Fusion GPS to Steele for opposition research to gather against Trump... FBI was using taxpayer dollars to pay for opposition research and unverified smears on Trump. In the words of FBI official Peter Strzok, sounds like an “insurance policy.” ......

    Anyone following the investigation of the Clinton campaign's attempt to frame Trump probably already knows that while the primary vector for the Clinton-Steele dossier, a document alleging Russian control over Trump created by the Clinton campaign and used as the basis for the FBI investigation, was Fusion GPS and its media and Dem allies, a secondary vector was McCain. Now it turns out that McCain had a different version of the Clinton-Steele dossier. Fusion GPS has discussed doing more work on the dossier afterward and it's likely that the version McCain had was a newer copy. It would explain why...

    s Trump won primary after primary in 2016, a rattled John Brennan started claiming to colleagues at the CIA that Estonia’s intelligence agency had alerted him to an intercepted phone call suggesting Putin was pouring money into the Trump campaign. The tip was bogus, but Brennan bit on it with opportunistic relish. Out of Brennan’s alarmist chatter about the bogus tip came an extraordinary leak to the BBC: that Brennan had used it, along with later half-baked tips from British intelligence, as the justification to form a multi-agency spy operation (given the Orwellian designation of an “inter-agency taskforce”) on the...

  • Section 702: What It Is & How It Works (FISA Warrants & Queries)

    Center for Democracy & Technology ^ | 1/22/2018 | Unattributed
    What Is It? Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) is a statute that authorizes the collection, use, and dissemination of electronic communications content stored by U.S. internet service providers (such as Google, Facebook, and Microsoft) or traveling across the internet’s “backbone” (with the compelled assistance of U.S. telecom providers such as AT&T and Verizon). Section 702 sunsets on December 31, 2017. Are There Any Restrictions? Unlike “traditional” FISA surveillance, Section 702 does not require that the surveillance target be a suspected terrorist, spy, or other agent of a foreign power. Section 702 only requires that the targets...

    One of the most contentious issues surrounding the Trump dossier is the question of whether the FBI used unverified material from the dossier — a Clinton campaign opposition research product — to apply for permission to spy on Americans. Investigators from both House and Senate have long wanted to see any FISA applications (that is, spying requests filed with the secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act court) that dealt with the Trump-Russia affair. Now, they have seen them. Sources on both Capitol Hill and in the executive branch have confirmed that representatives of four committees — the House Intelligence Committee, Senate...

    CONSERVATIVE TREEHOUSE ^ | 1/16/2018 | SUNDANCE
    Time, further questioning, and a host of inherent contradictions will eventually bring more sunlight upon the authorship of “The Dossier”. Additionally, how it was used by the DOJ/FBI in gaining FISA-702 query and upstream data surveillance approvals, what the media calls “FISA Warrants”, is soon to reach sunlight. It’s unavoidable. In addition to the absurd claims debunked within the dossier, a significantly under-discussed aspect is the actual authorship. Fusion GPS claims Christopher Steele wrote the memos which were assembled into the “Clinton Dossier”. However, there are numerous mistakes within the documents which no intelligence expert would ever make; including the...

    What we know about corrupt FBI Agent Peter Strzok: He was on the reviewer list for Comey’s draft exoneration memo. The one where Comey pronounced her innocent before interviewing her. He changed Comey's earlier draft language describing Clinton's actions as "grossly negligent" to "extremely careless." (CNN) He then interviewed Hillary, and followed the previously written exoneration script. Not recorded. Not under oath. He interviewed Flynn, re: lying to the FBI crap fest. And was instrumental in bringing charges. He was having an affair with another Mueller lawyer. Who apparently (earlier?) worked for McCabe. Corrupt McCabe. He was on Mueller’s “Get...

    White House attorney Ty Cobb was overheard talking about the Russia probe and some of his colleagues at a Washington steakhouse by a New York Times reporter, the publication reported Sunday night. Cobb, who was hired to oversee the White House's legal and media response to the investigation into Russian meddling, was heard talking openly about the Russia investigation with John Dowd, a Washington lawyer with experience in high-profile political cases. "The White House counsel's office is being very conservative with this stuff," Cobb reportedly told Dowd at BLT Steak in Washington last week. "Our view is we're not hiding...

    Former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort is calling on the Justice Department to release transcripts of any intercepted communications he may have had with foreigners. Manafort, a longtime Republican political consultant, also called on the Justice Department’s inspector general to investigate the leak of details of secret surveillance warrants obtained by U.S. investigators. “Mr. Manafort requests that the Department of Justice release any intercepts involving him and any non-Americans so interested parties can come to the same conclusion as the DOJ — there is nothing there,” Manafort spokesman Jason Maloni said in a statement. On Monday, CNN reported that investigators...
