  • Strzok’s newly discovered FBI notes deliver jolt to ‘Obamagate’ evidence

    Investigators will need to secure testimony from Strzok, fired two years ago from the FBI, to be certain of the exact meaning and intent of his one paragraph of notes, which were made public in court on Wednesday. But they appear to illuminate an extraordinary high-level effort by outgoing Obama-era officials during the first weekend of January to find a way to sustain a counterintelligence investigation of Flynn in the absence of any evidence of wrongdoing. The Justice Department says the notes were written between Jan. 3-5, 2017, the very weekend the FBI agent who had investigated Flynn’s ties to...

    At 11:59 p.m. Wednesday, the extension of the so-called “stay home, work safe” order in Harris County expired, but an announcement on the future of the order is expected Thursday. Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo issued the original order in March as the coronavirus pandemic began to unfold. Last month, she extended it until June 10. A representative of Hidalgo said Wednesday that an announcement about the future of the order will be made “in the next couple of days.” Later in the day, Hidalgo scheduled a 3 p.m. Thursday news conference. The representative said that the order will likely...

    Obama Used National Security to Spy on Americans Opposed to Islamic Terrorists Obamagate redefined opposition to Islamic terrorism as a national security threat. Mon Jun 8, 2020 Daniel Greenfield 55 Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical Left and Islamic terrorism. We know when Obamagate ended, but we don’t know when the policy of spying on Americans began. The tangled roots of the domestic surveillance of political opponents by the NSA predate the alarmism about Russia. Tracing them back into the fetid swamp takes us not toward...

  • 'Obamagate' backfires: Documents show Biden, Obama acted properly

    Republicans and right-wing media are in a conspiracy theory-spewing meltdown. In the wake of selective, politically motivated “leaks” of sensitive documents, conservative pundits are launching an avalanche of baseless attacks against President Trump’s political opponents. But the reality is brutally obvious: Trump is weaponizing the American government to distract from his catastrophically incompetent pandemic response and the crushing economic fallout. While right-wing media continue to whip their audiences into hysteria over a nefarious Obama-led plot to undermine Trump, the documents — strategically released by Trump’s political lackeys atop the intelligence and law enforcement communities — do absolutely nothing to further...

    Allow me to disabuse you of your naďve delusion that we still live in a country with a justice system and break it to you that no one is going to jail for what was done to Flynn, or for the unmasking business, or for the Russia hoax or, for that matter, for any of the corrupt Dem/foreigner collaborations exemplified by the payoffs received by stripperphile and Bolivian folk medicine enthusiast Hoover Biden. No one. Well, maybe Mike Flynn himself will. Since his judge is now making up the law as he goes along – in law school they taught...

    President Trump said Monday that he was “surprised” by Attorney General William Barr’s statement that he doesn’t anticipate a criminal investigation into former President Obama or former Vice President Joe Biden. “I think if it was me, they would do it. I think if for them, maybe, they’re not going to,” Trump told reporters Monday afternoon when asked about the attorney general's comments. “I’m surprised because Obama knew everything that was happening.” “I think it’s just a continuation of a double standard. I am surprised by it,” the president continued. Barr earlier Monday said he didn’t expect U.S. attorney John...

    Well, there you have it. – During his press conference Monday addressing developments in the investigation of last year’s mass shooting at NAS Pensacola, Attorney General William Barr took time to also discuss the progress of the ongoing investigation of Spygate/Obamagate led by U.S. Attorney John Durham. During the course of his four minutes of remarks, Barr made clear that, regardless of what Durham’s investigation reveals about the involvement of Barack Obama and Joe Biden, his DOJ will refuse to prosecute either man. Below is a clip of Barr’s remarks, followed by a transcript: VDO.AI Daily Caller ✔ @DailyCaller AG...

    There is strong evidence that President Barack Obama’s administration improperly weaponized U.S. intelligence agencies in multiple and shocking ways against Donald Trump and other political enemies. It appears the Obama administration did this in a number of ways, including: fraudulently obtaining Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrants to spy on American citizens; promoting the Democratic National Committee-funded dossier assembled by former British spy Christopher Steele that was filled with lies about Trump; politicizing intelligence analysis; leaking intelligence; and spying on political opponents and journalists. In the period when he was a presidential candidate and president-elect, Trump and his aides seemed to...

    Former Director of National Intelligence (DNI) James Clapper said Thursday it is “routine” to “unmask” American citizens who have been caught up in surveillance of foreign individuals as Republicans spark an uproar over allegations that officials spied on former national security adviser Michael Flynn. “Over the six and a half almost seven years when I served as DNI I would say perhaps once or twice a week perhaps,” Clapper said on CNN when asked how frequently he would request an American’s identity to be revealed. “It’s a routine thing. It’s appropriate and legitimate when you have a valid foreign intelligence...
