  • Sen. Mark Warner calls DOJ intelligence briefing a 'farce'

    The Washington Times ^ | May 24th, 2018 | By Jeff Mordock
    Sen. Mark Warner, the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, said Thursday a meeting between a bipartisan group of House and Senate leaders and intelligence and law enforcement officials is a “farce” because the disclosure of classified information should be limited to the so-called “Gang of Eight” — a collection of Senate and House leaders who traditionally receive the briefings on sensitive intelligence matters. Two intelligence briefings are scheduled for Thursday afternoon to discuss the FBI’s investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election. It is said to include details about an FBI informant who contacted members of the...

    Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA) said there was not “a single piece of legislation” that would have prevented the recent school shooting in Texas. Warner said, “I don’t think there’s a single piece of legislation, but there’s a series of actions. Are there things we can do that would improve the safety of our schools? Absolutely.” He continued, “Should there be more mental health counseling for troubled teens, the number of the incidents caused by young men time and time again? Absolutely. Making sure people are safer with their own firearms? Absolutely.
  • Sen. Mark Warner Traded Secret Texts with Russian Oligarch's Lobbyist Linked to Hillary

    The top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee communicated through phone calls and text messages last spring with a lobbyist for a Russian oligarch in order to gain access to Christopher Steele, the former British spy who wrote the salacious and unverified anti-Trump dossier. Senator Mark Warner (D-Va.) texted back and forth with lobbyist Adam Waldman, who runs the Endeavor Group -- which has ties to (surprise!) Hillary Clinton -- while leading the Senate Intelligence Committee's investigation into President Trump's alleged ties to Russia with his Republican colleague North Carolina Sen. Richard Burr.In one text to the lobbyist, the senator expressed a desire...
  • The FBI didn’t use an informant to go after Trump. They used one to protect him. [WasPo garbage]

    05/18/2018 10:27:06 PM PDT · by Bigtigermike · 96 replies
    But Trump and his backers are wrong about what it means that the FBI reportedly was using a confidential source to gather information early in its investigation of possible campaign ties to Russia. The investigation started out as a counterintelligence probe, not a criminal one. And relying on a covert source rather than a more intrusive method of gathering information suggests that the FBI may have been acting cautiously — perhaps too cautiously — to protect the campaign, not undermine it. As a former FBI counterintelligence agent, I know what Trump apparently does not: Counterintelligence investigations have a different purpose...

  • Schumer: GOP efforts to identify FBI informant 'close to crossing a legal line'

    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) on Saturday said Republican lawmakers’ efforts to uncover the identity of an FBI informant in order to obstruct special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation comes close to "crossing a legal line." Schumer was tweeting his support of a statement from the Senate Intelligence Committee's top Democrat, Mark Warner (Va.), who warned Republican lawmakers against exposing the identity of the informant who gave investigators information about possible ties between the Trump campaign and Russia. Warner said in a separate Twitter thread on Friday, "It would be at best irresponsible, and at worst potentially illegal, for members...

    Sen. Mark Warner (D-Va.) warned Republican lawmakers on Friday not to expose the identity of top-secret FBI informant, saying that to do so would be "irresponsible" — and potentially illegal. "It would be at best irresponsible, and at worst potentially illegal, for members of Congress to use their positions to learn the identity of an FBI source for the purpose of undermining the ongoing investigation into Russian interference in our election," Warner, the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, said in a statement. "Anyone who is entrusted with our nation’s highest secrets should act with the gravity and seriousness...

    As Tucker Carlson is saying right now, for the last year all you heard from the mouths of democrats was "Russia, Russia, Russia." They called Trump a Russian dupe and Michael Flynn a traitor. After a year with zero evidence of any Trump-Russia collusion and Robert Mueller inexplicably indicting a ham sandwich, people are catching on to this whole charade being what Trump says it is- a witch hunt.  A number of signals are being sent from democrats revealing their intent to put as much room as they can between them and all the nasty things they've said about Trump.

    Reuters ^ | September 21, 2017 | by Sarah N. Lynch, Jonathan Spicer
    Wall Street’s top regulator faced questions on Thursday about its defenses against cyber criminals after admitting hackers breached its electronic database of corporate announcements and may have used it for insider trading. The incursion at the Securities and Exchange Commission struck at the heart of the U.S. financial system. The SEC’s EDGAR filing system is the central repository for market-moving information on corporate America with millions of filings ranging from quarterly earnings to statements on acquisitions. Accessing documents before they are released publicly would offer hackers a lucrative opportunity to trade on that information. The SEC has said it was...

    Former Trump campaign aide Michael Caputo was on Capitol Hill Tuesday for a closed-door meeting with Senate Intelligence Committee investigators as part of the panel's probe into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election. Caputo worked for the Trump campaign from November 2015 to June 2016 as a political adviser. Speaking exclusively with ABC News upon his arrival Tuesday, Caputo once again disputed the notion the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians during the 2016 campaign. “I’m looking forward to talking to the Senate committee," Caputo told ABC News. "I hope it’s the last time I’m asked to talk...

Pompeo likely already had the votes to be confirmed by the full Senate. With Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) expected to oppose him, Pompeo needed...

    Sen. Mark Warner, D-Virginia, says that now is the time for he and his colleagues on Capitol Hill to "change our positions and re-examine" bans on high-capacity magazines and assault weapons. He told CBS News' "Face the Nation" on Sunday that there needs to be a debate about restrictions in the wake of the Parkland school shooting. "I think it's time for us to have a legitimate debate about restrictions on gun magazines and assault weapons. You get into definitions, but the basic notion of these weaponized, militarized weapons need to be off our streets. And even the Trump administration...

    Mark Warner was texting a Russian oligarch using an encrypted app, Signal, and his messages were set to automatically delete. FoxNews broke a huge story about Senator Mark Warner, which has been discussed elsewhere. What I haven’t seen anyone else cover is the fact that the “text messages” were not ordinary messages. Warner was communicating via Signal, an encrypted app. Moreover, Warner had his messages set to disappear. (The hour glass icon in the text exchange.)

With all that's come out (so far) I'm 100% certain that policy was the Dossier. BOTH of them. 2. So on Sept 29, they text 'can you step out to pick up the *product*?' The product is almost CERTAINLY the Steele dossier. They took delivery of their manufactured evidence to begin their attempted coup. They begin acting on their seditious conspiracy. 3. So in October, per McCabe's congressional testimony, a FISA application based on...

    President Donald Trump acknowledged a report Thursday that shows how Democratic Sen. Mark Warner was in contact with a lobbyist for Russian oligarch Oleg V. Deripaska. A report from Fox News Thursday reveals text messages between Adam Waldman, a lobbyist for Deripaska, and Warner. In the messages Sen. Warner expressed interest in meeting with Christopher Steele, the author of the unverified dossier used to get a warrant to surveil former Trump campaign associate Carter Page. In the messages, Warner said that he didn’t want to leave a “paper trail” of meetings with Steele.
