  • No Holds Barred: Barr and Durham Must Investigate Obama & Biden Too

    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...

    Newly released documents written by Peter Strzok in 2017 proving that former President Barack Obama was active in the scheme to undermine the Trump Administration prompted House Judiciary Chairman Rep. Jerrod Nadler (D-NY) to demand an end to the coup investigation being conducted by U.S. Attorney John Durham. "James Comey, John Brennan, James Clapper, Peter Strzok, and all the rest were working at the explicit direction of President Obama," Nadler said. "Whatever so-called crimes they may have committed under orders from the President were fully authorized. President Obama is immune because as President Nixon pointed out, under the Constitution if...

    Former FBI director James Comey told President Obama that the 2016 conversations between Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak and incoming national-security adviser Michael Flynn were not criminal in nature, according to notes from former agent Peter Strzok released by Flynn’s legal team. The page of notes was taken by Strzok appears to describe a January 5, 2017 meeting of President Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, and national security officials. This meeting occurred amid accusations that incoming Trump administration officials had colluded with Russian operatives. Strzok was not present at the meeting, and it is unclear what record of the meeting he...

    The director of the cable movie version of fired FBI chief James Comey’s book “A Higher Loyalty” flipped his lid after learning that the flick would air after the November election — and now ViacomCBS says it will reconsider the decision and move up the air date. Both Comey and the director, Billy Ray, said they were disappointed in the earlier decision to delay the flick, called “The Comey Rule,” the New York Times reported Tuesday. “I don’t understand why CBS would sit on a movie about important current events, and I hope the American people get the chance to...

    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...

    Showtime teased an upcoming miniseries focusing on former FBI Director James Comey's relationship with President Trump. The network announced on Tuesday that its two-part, four-hour miniseries The Comey Rule, based on the former FBI Director's memoir A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership, will air in November, days after the 2020 election. Showtime also teased the series by sharing ominous photographs of actors Brendan Gleeson as Donald Trump and Jeff Daniels, star of Dumb and Dumber, as the former FBI Director.

    McFarland said according to notes Comey took on the private meeting with Trump, the two explained pleasantries. “And then Comey said, ‘I actually want to reassure you that I intend to stay as FBI director,’” McFarland said he told Trump. “And then Comey pulls out his file, his J. Edgar Hoover file.” Trump denied the claims in the file. “And Comey says, ‘Well, maybe not but the media is really hot for it. Only a few people in the intelligence community have a copy of this.’ Long pause,” McFarland said. “And then, what does President Trump do? He says, ‘Well...

    The Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee voted on Thursday to grant Chairman Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) broad subpoena authority as part of a probe stemming from the Obama administration. In a party-line vote, Republicans on the panel gave Johnson the power to issue subpoenas for more than 35 individuals and a swath of documents, which will allow him to skip having to come back to the committee for a vote on each individual subpoena. Johnson is conducting a wide-ranging investigation that includes reviewing "Crossfire Hurricane," the name for the FBI's investigation into election interference and the Trump campaign, the...

    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...

    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.

  • Judge Emmett Sullivan, from General Flynn Trial, Arranged Speaking Gig for James Comey at Howard University for $100,000

    The confused judge who has unconstitutionally inserted himself into the Justice Department’s case against General Flynn made some actions behind the scene that are just as troubling. Judge Sullivan helped Jim Comey get his speaking gig at Howard University for $100,000. How much more corruption can America take. The corrupt judge who inserted himself into the General Flynn case, who insinuated the General was a traitor, has a lifestyle that matches his actions in court. He’s not only famous for his unethical standards and actions in the Flynn trial, he also ordered that deported asylum seekers must be returned to...
  • Damning FBI memo used to launch surveillance of Trump unveiled: ‘Scam based on absurd gossip’

    The EC was obtained as a result of Judicial Watch’s FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) lawsuit against the FBI and Department of Justice. The electronic communication was dated July 31, 2016 and was written by former FBI official Peter Strzok — a Hillary superfan who hates Trump, as he expressed in countless text messages with his former mistress, FBI attorney Lisa Page. The redacted document appears to prove that the illegal surveillance of Trump campaign aides was started on the basis of unsubstantiated, third-hand gossip speculating that Russia might have wanted Donald Trump to win in 2016.

    How amusing to find President Obama’s national-security advisor, Susan Rice, suddenly calling for public release of the Flynn–Kislyak conversation intercepted by the Obama administration in late December 2016. I called for its release nearly three-and-a-half years ago. Dr. Rice, in a familiar pattern for her, has spent the ensuing years saying things that were obviously untrue only to reverse herself once the paper trail starts to dribble out. Try not to get dizzy. Rice has gone from claiming to have had no knowledge of Obama administration monitoring of Flynn and other Trump associates, to claiming no knowledge of any unmaskings...

    A funny thing happened on the way to the gallows. It was discovered that the condemned man was actually innocent. But the sentence would be carried out, reasoned the hanging judge, because the partisan mob must not be left disappointed. (It would also be a waste of good lumber.) A metaphorical story, yes. But the underlying facts bear a disturbing resemblance to the treatment of Gen. Michael Flynn, President Trump’s former national security adviser. In early 2017, the retired three-star general was deviously set up and framed by James Comey’s FBI for a crime he did not commit. Thereafter, he...

    The FBI was “heavily” dependant on media leaks and so-called “news hooks” to further its Crossfire Hurricane investigation into the eventually-disproved claims of collusion between President Trump’s 2016 campaign and Russia, according to a new analysis of public records by the Daily Caller News Foundation. The analysis by investigative reporter Chuck Ross highlights five significant news reports the FBI used to justify its advancement of the investigation into the Trump campaign, many of which reports revolved around the incriminating information contained in the discredited dossier compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele.

    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)...

    Former FBI Assistant Deputy Director Terry Turchie said on “Fox & Friends” on Monday that he has noticed that the mainstream media used to denounce Federal Bureau of Investigation abuses — until the agency went after President Trump. “It’s something that's kind of surprising,” he said. Turchie made the comment reacting to The New York Post editorial, which noted that “Democrats and their puppets in the media – once fierce critics of US law enforcement and spying agencies – have suddenly become their biggest champions, at least when the issue is these agencies’ targeting of Team Trump.”
  • INFOGRAPHIC: Timeline of FBI’s FISA Abuse in Trump Campaign Investigation

    In pursuit of surveillance of a Trump campaign adviser, the FBI consistently ignored exculpatory evidence In its pursuit of establishing surveillance on the Trump campaign, the FBI turned its attention to Trump campaign adviser Carter Page in the spring of 2016, culminating in the issuance of a FISA warrant—which allows for some of the most intrusive spying methods on an American citizen. As part of this process, the FBI relied extensively on the flawed Steele dossier, leading an FBI legal counsel to note that this was “essentially a single source FISA.”
