  • Mystery of Joseph Mifsud key to Trump-Russia probe origin

    The Washington Times ^ | Sunday, October 20, 2019 | Rowan Scarborough
    ANALYSIS/OPINION: A seemingly unrelated criminal case in Washington has reopened a popular Trump-Russia guessing game: Who is Joseph Mifsud? The FBI says the vanishing professor is a Russian spy. Trump backers, citing Mr. Mifsud’s extensive Western intelligence contacts, suspect he’s an FBI, CIA or MI6 plant. The Washington Times examined Mr. Mifsud’s extensive resume and frequent travels, revealing a skilled networker far more wedded to the West than the East. In May 2017, 10 months into the FBI Russia conspiracy probe, Mr. Mifsud spoke in Riyadh at a high-powered terrorism conference. On his panel was counterterrorism expert Michael Hurley, who...

    WASHINGTON — Federal prosecutors reviewing the origins of the Russia investigation have asked witnesses pointed questions about any anti-Trump bias among former F.B.I. officials who are frequent targets of President Trump and about the earliest steps they took in the Russia inquiry, according to former officials and other people familiar with the review. The prosecutors, led by John H. Durham, the United States attorney in Connecticut, have interviewed about two dozen former and current F.B.I. officials, the people said. Two former senior F.B.I. agents are assisting with the review, the people said.

  • Flynn Spygate Saga: Why It Matters That Sidney Powell Wants Data From Joseph Mifsud’s Smartphones

    On Tuesday, attorney Sidney Powell struck again, revealing yet another huge development in the Spygate saga between the lines of her latest motion. That motion, filed in the still-pending criminal case against Trump’s former national security advisor, Michael Flynn, demanded exculpatory evidence from federal prosecutors.But unlike her previously filed motion to compel, here Powell seeks evidence “that has only recently come into its possession.” And the evidence sought? The data and metadata from two Blackberry devices used by Joseph Mifsud.While Powell’s latest motion barely equaled two pages, the implications are multi-pronged and monumental.That the U.S. government has only recently obtained...

    HUGE! FBI Employees Conducted 3.1 Million Questionable and Illicit Searches, Including Searches on US Citizens in 2017-2018 According to a new declassified ruling FBI employees abused NSA mass surveillance data in 2017 and 2018. In 2017 FBI employees conducted over 3.1 million searches from the NSA database including searching activities of US citizens.Under current FBI rules surveillance data can only be searched if there is reasonable suspicion of crimes having taken place or clear risks to national security. But FBI employees and even contractors were searching the database to see what information they could find on U.S. citizens.The bureau is...

    RINO Paul Ryan was a disgrace as a “Republican” House Speaker, and one of his biggest failings was taking advantage of complete GOP control of Congress and the White House during President Trump’s first two years in office. Some conservatives (us included) have blamed him for losing the House, as he and more than 50 other establishment Republicans bailed on their constituents, on Trump, and on our republic ahead of the 2018 elections. None of Ryan’s anti-Trump treachery has been lost on the president.

    Breitbart ^ | 12 Oct 2019 | Aaron Klein
    Mark S. Zaid, the activist attorney representing the so-called whistleblower at the center of the impeachment movement targeting President Donald Trump, advocated for Robert S. Mueller III to become an anti-Trump whistleblower. On April 25, 2018, while Mueller’s Office of the Special Counsel was investigating ultimately collapsed claims of collusion between Russia and Trump’s presidential campaign, Zaid co-authored an oped in the New York Times calling for Mueller and his staff to become “lawful whistle-blowers.” The scheme outlined by Zaid was an option to be implemented if Trump had moved to fire Mueller and dismantle the Special Counsel’s office. Zaid...

    Sep 30, 2019 Ukrainian Records Shed New Light on Biden's Ultimatum to Terminate Prosecutor --- Ukraine-DNC Coordination to Undermine Trump 2016 Campaign Should Not be Overlooked WASHINGTON - Two Senate chairmen want to know whether the Justice Department has acquired information from Ukrainian prosecutors that may contradict the stated reasoning behind former Vice President Joe Biden's threat to withhold U.S. assistance from Ukraine. They are also renewing an inquiry into the department's response to reported efforts by Ukrainians, in coordination with Democratic Party associates, to acquire damaging information on Donald Trump during his 2016 presidential campaign.

    Washington Times ^ | September 29, 2019 | By Rowan Scarborough
    Democrats and their operatives sought foreign help for anti-Trump dirt on a number of occasions during the 2016 election and afterward, including the infamous Kremlin-sourced dossier and Rep. Adam B. Schiff’s attempt to obtain from Russians supposed photos of a naked Donald Trump. Democrats also reached out to Ukraine to collect political smut on President Trump and his aides. Republicans believe the Ukrainian intervention, which is now under Justice Department investigation, included the creation of a bogus “black ledger” whose disclosure felled former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort. Three Democratic senators pressured the Ukrainian government last year to help special...

    From The New York Post: Former head of the CIA John Brennan admitted on Monday that he may have relied on “bad information” for his relentless attacks on President Trump. Brennan — who once warned that “our Nation’s future is at stake” — told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” that he may have been misled on the extent of Trump’s connections to Russia. “Well, I don’t know if I received bad information but I think I suspected there was more than there actually was,” Brennan said. “I am relieved that it’s been determined there was not a criminal conspiracy with the Russian...

    FBI personnel improperly searched an expansive foreign surveillance database for tens of thousands of phone numbers and/or email addresses that included those of Americans—in violation of rules put in place to protect Americans’ constitutional rights, according to a court ruling. “The FBI procedures, as implemented, have involved a large number of unjustified queries conducted to retrieve information about U.S. persons,” said James Boasberg, judge on the secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) in an Oct. 18, 2018 ruling (pdf) that was released with redactions on Tuesday. The database aggregates data collected under Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act...

    One aspect heavily monitored by CTH surrounds frequent redactions to ongoing DOJ releases that touch upon former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. An additionally annoying thorn would be the continued holding-back of Rosenstein’s expanded scope memos authorizing the expansion of Mueller’s special investigation. [They remain hidden] The reason Rosenstein’s behavior remains a high-priority is simply because without his ongoing participation and authorization in 2017 and 2018 the Weissmann/Mueller probe would not have been able to continue. Rosenstein is a central character to all events, and at the end of the Mueller investigation -through today- the DOJ continued to black out...
  • Gregg Jarrett: Did Mueller lie to Congress about meeting with Trump

    Full Title: Gregg Jarrett: Did Mueller lie to Congress about meeting with Trump before he took the special counsel job? It has always been suspicious that Robert Mueller met with President Trump in the Oval Office the day before he was officially appointed by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to investigate Trump. Newly uncovered documents show that Mueller and Rosenstein had been privately communicating in the days before that meeting. They worked sedulously to keep it a secret. Trump had no idea that Mueller was already on board to serve as special counsel.

    After months of investigating, U.S. Attorney John Durham has broadened his team to include additional agents and resources as the timeline they are examining has extended, according to Fox News. The investigation of the investigators, led by Attorney General William Barr and Durham as his right-hand man, had targeted the beginning of the Trump-Russia counterintelligence investigation to the 2016 election. It has been elongated to include at least the spring of 2017, when former FBI Director Robert Mueller was appointed special counsel after former FBI Director James Comey was fired by Trump and leaked the contents of some of his...

    Among the other revelations in 'Deep State' is that former deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein had the support of two cabinet colleagues for invoking the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office. Stewart claims that it was former chief of staff John Kelly and former Attorney General Jeff Sessions who said they might back it. Stewart claims that Rosenstein was so concerned about Trump that he twice offered to McCabe to wear a wire to record Trump, not once as previously reported. Rosenstein supposedly told McCabe: 'I never get searched, no one ever searches me. I could record the President'....
