    A record-breaking ruling for the family of Bob Levinson, a former FBI Agent who vanished while in Iran 13-years ago. Thursday, a U.S. judge ruled Iran must pay Levinson's family $1.46 billion, the largest judgement for a case of this kind... Levinson disappeared in 2007 while working as a CIA contractor in Iran. His family immediately called on (Atty. David) McGee, who was Levinson's friend, to help bring him home... Earlier this year, Levinson's family announced they were convinced the husband and father of seven was dead. In a statement, they said the judgement was the "the first step in...

    Former FBI Director James Comey testified by video earlier this week before the Senate Judiciary Committee, where part of his testimony appeared to contradict what Andrew McCabe has previously told Congress.

    Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe said Saturday that he will not appear at a hearing in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee next week after two of its members tested positive for COVID-19. McCabe was set to testify in front of the judiciary panel on Tuesday as part of its investigation into the origins of the FBI’s Russia probe but said he felt attending would be tantamount to putting his family at risk after Sens. Mike Lee (R-Utah) and Thom Tillis (R-N.C.), who sit on the committee, tested positive. SNIP "Mr. McCabe is willing, able, and eager to testify...

    “Stalinist tactics mandate immediate dismissal of this case,” Flynn’s attorneys say. In early September, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit rejected Gen. Michael Flynn’s petition for dismissal and voted 8-2 to send the case back to judge Emmet Sullivan. The judge, who rejected the Department of Justice dismissal of the case, must now consider documents Flynn’s attorneys filed with the court on Thursday. “General Flynn has a Sixth Amendment right to a public exoneration regarding the proceedings against him,” the documents state, “and the American people have a right to know the truth about the nefarious conduct...

    Last week (September 17, 2020) the investigators for US Attorney for the Eastern District, Jeffrey B. Jensen, who is conducting an ongoing review of the FBI investigation that led to charges in this case of General Michael Flynn, interviewed FBI Special Agent William Barnett, who handled the counterintelligence investigation of Mr. Flynn.  Barnett was subsequently assigned to the Special Counsel’s Office investigating Russian interference in the 2016 Presidential Election.Barnett’s testimony is devastating for Jim Comey, Andy McCabe and Peter Strzok and a host of other FBI collaborators keen on destroying Donald Trump.Barnett’s testimony is succinct. Here are the key snippets...
  • FBI agent: Never was evidence of Russia collusion but Mueller team had 'get Trump' goal

    Just the News ^ | 9/25/2020 | John Solomon
    An FBI agent who played a lead role investigating Michael Flynn told the Justice Department there was never evidence of wrongdoing by the retired general or Russian collusion by President Trump, but the probe was kept open by Special Counsel Robert Mueller because his team had a "get Trump" goal, according to an explosive interview released Friday. Agent William Barnett's interview with Justice Department prosecutors earlier this month provided a bombshell claim that both FBI superiors under agency Director James Comey and Mueller's team exhibited bias in their pursuit of Trump that upended the normal investigative decisions, tactics and commitment...

    New details have emerged about 2016’s "October Surprise," during which the FBI found emails belonging to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on disgraced New York Rep. Anthony Weiner’s laptop, with the FBI official who found the emails speaking out for the first time. FBI agent John Robertson, who worked in its New York office’s child sex crimes unit and was later cited (though not named) in Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s 2018 report on the handling of the investigation of Clinton's unauthorized private email server, spoke with the Washington Post’s Devin Barrett for his upcoming book, October Surprise:...

    White House chief of staff Mark Meadows said he has seen "additional" documents that are pertinent to U.S. Attorney John Durham's criminal inquiry into the Russia investigation. Meadows, a former congressional investigator, told Fox Business anchor Maria Bartiromo on Tuesday that he does not have an update on Durham's work but noted that these records he has viewed reflect poorly on top FBI officials who were involved in the origins of the operation looking into ties between President Trump's 2016 campaign and Russia. "Additional documents that I’ve been able to review say that a number of the players, the Peter...

    Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe and other top officials reportedly took steps to preserve memos authored by former Director James Comey and other key documents related to the Russia investigation over worries that President Trump would interfere in the probe, CNN reported Thursday. In the days following Comey's ouster in 2017, McCabe reportedly thought that President Trump's decision to remove the FBI director was problematic and, as the then-acting director of the agency, instructed his team to open a criminal case, according to an adapted excerpt from CNN legal analyst Jeffery Toobin's book, "TRUE CRIMES AND MISDEMEANORS: The Investigation...

Danik, a retired FBI supervisory special agent, for emails and text messages of former-FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe ( Jeffrey A. Danik v. U.S. Department of Justice (No. 1:17-cv-01792).

    Expect indictments in U.S. Attorney John Durham's criminal inquiry into the Russia investigation by summer's end. That's what K.T. McFarland, a onetime deputy to former White House national security adviser Michael Flynn, said this week on Fox News, referring to the emergence of "cold hard evidence" in the form of documentation. “Now, there is cold, hard evidence. It turns out that these senior officials in the intelligence community and the FBI, they all took notes. They all texted each other. They all had handwritten notes of meetings,” McFarland said on Monday. “And from what I'm hearing, the Durham investigation and...

    Roughly a week ago Attorney General William Barr made two noteworthy comments in an interview with Fox’s Maria Bartiromo. The first was that we would likely learn some significant information from John Durham’s investigation into the provenance and conduct of the Russia probe by end of summer. The implication was that some people were going to be in legal jeopardy. Barr didn’t name them but we can imagine Messrs. Brennan, Comey, Clapper, Strzok, McCabe and so on could be among them. It’s also noteworthy how these same individuals have suddenly been less in the public eye, not appearing ad nauseam...

    Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe accused former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein of giving “false” testimony Wednesday about James Comey’s memos documenting his interactions with President Trump. During his appearance before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Rosenstein suggested that McCabe should have shared details about former FBI Director Comey’s memos on his conversations with the president earlier, claiming that he didn’t tell him about their existence until right before they were leaked. Asked whether McCabe lied to him, Rosenstein testified: "Lying is when you ask someone a direct question and get a false answer. Candor is when you’re forthcoming with...

    It seems the only ones who still think ex-National Security Adviser Michael Flynn is guilty of anything are the usual suspects: anti-Trump clowns. Forget the politically motivated charges against Flynn, these folks are simply ignoring the horrific deviations from policy here and the heinous acts of overreach conducted by the FBI to scalp a Trump official because they so desperately wanted Russian collusion to be true. The FBI stumbled into this mess and instead of putting out the fire, they decided to pour gasoline on it. This Flynn fiasco shows the lengths at which the FBI will go to ensure...

    Former FBI Director James Comey and former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe slammed the Justice Department’s decision to drop its case against former national security adviser Michael Flynn on charges he lied to the FBI about his contacts with Russians. “The DOJ has lost its way. But, career people: please stay because America needs you. The country is hungry for honest, competent leadership,” Comey tweeted. McCabe said in a statement Flynn had “high level interactions with Russian officials” who he “actively tried to influence.” He also said Flynn had lied about the substance of his talks with Russian officials. “His...

    Wow! Looks like Flynn’s former lawyers were in cahoots with the coup and had to make sure Flynn was convicted. Remember early on when rumors of 302s being changed? Many had though McCabe changed them himself, now it may be he didn’t personally changed them himself but pressured Pientka and when he said no, he went to his ‘clean up’ man Strzok to do the job Link of the document
