    The very day in January 2017 that then-FBI Director James Comey signed a FISA surveillance warrant application declaring content from Christopher Steele's dossier had been "verified," he wrote President Obama's outgoing intelligence community chief with a very different assessment of the British spy's intelligence on Russia collusion, a newly released memo shows. "We are not able to sufficiently corroborate the reporting," Comey wrote in a Jan. 12, 2017 email to then-Director of National Intelligence James Clapper that was declassified and made public through an open records lawsuit by the Southeastern Legal Foundation. The memo recounts an internal debate inside the...

    PART 1: This is the kind of series I’d hope I’d never have to write. And yet, here we are. After three years of doing my best to serve the groundswell that is the Patriot movement in the United States, and six total, being on the total warpath for Trump, I must now bring to you what are possibly the most important articles I will ever have to write which will reveal corruption, and contempt for the American people at the highest levels. This will be a three part series, released over the next few hours, so please, pay close...

  • Rand Paul: Snowden revealed that the most POWERFUL spy in the world, James Clapper, spied on Americans and lied about it

    NY Post ^ | Dec 25 | By Ebony Bowden
    WASHINGTON — Republicans in Congress are pushing President Trump to grant clemency to whistleblower Edward Snowden amid a blitz of pardons during his final weeks in the White House, according to a new report. Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.), as well as recently pardoned Trump associate Roger Stone, have all asked the president in recent days to drop the criminal charges against the former National Security Agency contractor, Politico reported Thursday. The president’s allies reportedly see Trump as increasingly amenable to the controversial idea and have pitched Snowden as someone who was unfairly persecuted after exposing...

    Former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates and California Attorney General Xavier Becerra are being eyed for possible top cabinet positions in President-elect Joe Biden's administration, said two sources familiar with the discussions. Yates, who currently serves on the advisory board to Biden's transition team, is "no doubt" being considered as a candidate to become the country's next Attorney General, said one of the two, who asked to remain anonymous because no decision has been reached.
  • 50 Former Intel Officials Including Clapper and Brennan Sign Letter Saying Hunter Biden Emails Story is Russian Disinformation — Despite DNI John Ratcliffe’s Statement

    Far-left Politico released a report yesterday claiming the Hunter Biden laptop story is Russian disinformation. What can you say… Politico writes: More than 50 former senior intelligence officials have signed on to a letter outlining their belief that the recent disclosure of emails allegedly belonging to Joe Biden’s son “has all the classic earmarks of a Russian information operation.”The letter, signed on Monday, centers around a batch of documents released by the New York Post last week that purport to tie the Democratic nominee to his son Hunter’s business dealings. Under the banner headline “Biden Secret E-mails,” the Post reported...

    The Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee approved another round of subpoenas Wednesday for depositions to dozens of officials from the Obama administration as part of the panel's investigation into the FBI's 2016 Russia investigation. The subpoenas -- which were sent to such officials as former CIA Director John Brennan, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and former FBI Director James Comey -- are the latest sign that the committee is ramping up its probes of President Donald Trump's political opponents ahead of the November election. The subpoenas approved on a party-line vote Wednesday were separate from the...

    A federal appeals court ruled Wednesday that the National Security Agency (NSA) surveillance program that collected data on Americans' telephone calls was illegal and possibly unconstitutional. A three-judge panel on the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the program, which was revealed by whistleblower Edward Snowden and officially ended in 2015, violated U.S. surveillance laws and potentially the Fourth Amendment of the Constitution. Despite their conclusion about the surveillance program, the judges upheld the convictions of four Somali immigrants who brought a legal challenge against it on appeal. Wednesday's ruling came seven years after the four were convicted in...

    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...

    The Epoch Times ^ | 25 Jun, 2020 | Roger L. Simon
    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...

    The upcoming publication of former presidential adviser John Bolton's 600-page novel detailing his year and a half in the Trump Administration has mightily irked House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif). "This is too little, too late," she complained. "We gave him the chance to testify in our impeachment inquiry six months ago, but he refused. He could have saved the nation from the continued depredations of President Trump. Instead, he let this tyrant escape justice while he hoarded all the juicy bits for his book." In his defense, Bolton lambasted "the Speaker's myopia. Look, we both have the same objective: get...

    Yesterday morning Joe Concha tweeted out an article by Mike Morell, a former Deputy Director of the CIA from 2010-2013. Morell said, in essence,  "the only culprit in the Flynn ‘unmasking’ scandal is the Trump administration." I've never liked Morell. I always found him slimy and less than honest. Others have as well. During the Benghazi episode Morell was thought to be "lacking candor" to coin a phrase. Here is one take: After former acting CIA Director Mike Morell testified to the House Intelligence Committee that he is the one who changed the Benghazi talking points, Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-NH)...

    Some of the most high-profile figures of the Obama administration are among a list of officials Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) would like to subpoena as part of his investigation into the FBI's probe of Russian election meddling and the Trump campaign. The list, released by Johnson's office on Thursday night, comes after he scheduled a committee vote for June 4 to seek subpoena authority. Former FBI Director James Comey, former national security adviser Susan Rice, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and former CIA Director John Brennan are among dozens of officials Johnson will request authority to subpoena.

    How does Watergate differ from Obamagate? Journalists led the charge to uncover the first. But now? Now journalists are leading the coverup of the second. J. Peder Zane has illustrated the media coverup exactly: “This week’s news that at least 39 Obama officials had unmasked Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn’s private conversations during the last month of their administration seemed a little shocking. Today, major media outlets are telling readers and viewers that the practice is “routine.” A CNN headline told readers, “Trump pushes 'Obamagate' conspiracy based on routine intel activity.” Obama’s Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, now a CNN...

    BERMAN: Asking for names [to be unmasked], nothing wrong with that. Unmasking in itself, nothing wrong with that. Leaking classified information — and by definition these phone calls were classified — that’s a problem, correct? CLAPPER: Absolutely, it is. BERMAN: And if anyone did leak the contents of these conversations with or without the name, that would be a problem, yes? CLAPPER: [connection ends] BERMAN: We’ve lost the shot. I wonder if we can at least get him on the phone to finish this. Let’s try to get Director Clapper back. All right, we’re gonna work on getting that shot...

    (flashback 5/27/2017) DOMESTIC ENEMIES UNDER JAMES CLAPPER DESTROYED THE CREDIBILITY OF THE U.S. INTELLIGENCE COMMUNITY The recent declassifying of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) Court review of the Inspector General’s (IG) investigation into the National Security Agency’s compliance with existing surveillance laws was eye-opening. Basically, the NSA failed miserably on all accounts, and this assessment includes the CIA. U.S. CITIZENS ARE BEING SURVEILLED AND RECORDED IN AN UNPRECEDENTED FASHION NEGATING THE FOURTH AMENDMENT RIGHTS OF AMERICANS. James Clapper was the head intelligence boss at the time this report was given in the late-fall of 2016. For the five years...

    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...
