    FBI Director Christopher Wray is the biggest obstacle to transparency regarding to Justice Department inspector general report on alleged surveillance abuses, according to one Republican figure. John Sununu, the former governor of New Hampshire and White House chief of staff for President George H.W. Bush, reacted Monday to South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, who said he wants "as much as possible" declassified from Inspector General Michael Horowitz's inquiry into alleged misconduct with using the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. "I think they should see it all because frankly there’s nothing there of substance that applies to any real intelligence process. It...
  • Reports: James Comey Is Torched In The Department Of Justice's IG Report On Obama-Era FISA Abuses

    Former FBI Director James Comey may have escaped charges for leaking classified information to the public, but that doesn’t mean he won’t be torched by the pending inspector general report from the Department of Justice. It once again shoots a hole right through the Democrats’ ongoing Trump impeachment narrative that is rapidly falling apart. Russian collusion was outright killed by the report filed by ex-Special Counsel Robert Mueller, as it debunked the already unverified Trump dossier compiled by ex-MI6 spy Christopher Steele. Fusion GPS hired him. And they were contracted by the Hillary Clinton campaign to get dirt of Trump....

    Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., is getting impatient with the FBI in his effort to root out misconduct in the early stages of the Trump-Russia investigation and went over Director Christopher Wray's head to try and move things along. In the balance, the GOP investigator said in a letter to top Justice Department officials last week, is the American public's ability to fully understand DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz's upcoming report on alleged surveillance abuses. In the letter addressed to Attorney General William Barr and Horowitz, Meadows pushed for the unredacted release of five pages related to British ex-spy Christopher Steele,...

    A powerful House Republican says President Obama’s FBI and CIA committed “severe, serious abuses” against then-presidential candidate Donald Trump that soon will be exposed. Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., told John Catsimatidis of New York City’s AM 970 “The Answer” that the Obama administration had no legal basis to probe the Trump campaign, The Hill reported. “There is no doubt to me there was severe, serious abuses that were carried out in the FBI and, I believe, top levels of the CIA against the president of the United States or, at that time, presidential candidate Donald Trump,” King said. “There was...

    Joe diGenova has a great deal of confidence in AG William Barr. After the interview last night (w/ Hannity) where President Trump outlined the lack of investigative information from the DOJ and FBI to the executive office of the president, I’m not sure that confidence is deserved. In this interview with Lou Dobbs, diGenova and Victoria Toensing discuss the currently suppressed Rosenstein scope memos issued to allow Weissmann and Mueller to expand their targeting of Trump; while simultaneously retaining optimism toward Bill Barr. Additionally, both Toensing and diGenova discuss presidential candidate Joe Biden.

    The closing of the final inspector general investigation into the Russia collusion investigation promises to open the flood gates for previously undisclosed information and indictments. The forthcoming report from the Office of Inspector General on potential Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act abuse will finally unleash Attorney General William Barr, and when it does, watch out. For the last month, conservative pundits have predicted the ever-imminent dropping of Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s report on his investigation into the circumstances surrounding FISA surveillance of former Trump campaign advisor Carter Page. Horowitz’s report will likely provide new and damaging details surrounding the FBI’s use...

    The decision by former MI6 agent Christopher Steele, author of the infamous “Steele dossier” used by the Obama regime to ensnare the 2016 Trump campaign in a phony “Russian collusion” scandal, is a “strategic” one that ultimately will prove the FBI “lied to Congress,” the American people, and the FISA court, according to a former federal prosecutor. Joe diGenova told Fox News‘ Sean Hannity Tuesday night that Steele’s decision to talk to John “Bull” Durham, who was assigned to look into the origins of the collusion probe by Attorney General William Barr, no doubt was the result of an agreement...

    Obama Appointed FISA Court Judge Contreras Who Recused Himself from Gen. Flynn Case Reportedly Involved in Multiple FISA Court Abuses FISA Court judge Rudolph Contreras who oversaw General Flynn’s case is friends with corrupt FBI agent Peter Strzok who set up General Flynn in the White House.

    The Obama White House used the most sensitive intrusive surveillance systems of the NSA to spy on Americans. A ruling by FISA Court Presiding Judge Rosemary Collyer finds that 85% of NSA database requests under FISA section 702 authority at the DOJ were illegal or noncompliant. Surveillance systems, including PRISM, spying on hundreds if not thousands of Americans. Including Donald Trump and those around him. (United States Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court of Review Amicus Brief) Moreover, Collyer finds, that the Department of Justice showed an appalling “lack of institutional candor”. FISA Judge Collyer rules illegal spying occurred In April 2016...

    Last night, President Trump gave Attorney General Bill Barr the authority to declassify information and documents related to the FBI's spying during the 2016 presidential election. He's asked for a number of government agencies to cooperate with Barr's inquiry, including the State Department, Treasury, Defense, Energy, Homeland Security, CIA and the Director of National Intelligence. "Today, at the request and recommendation of the Attorney General of the United States, President Donald J. Trump directed the intelligence community to quickly and fully cooperate with the Attorney GeneralÂ’s investigation into surveillance activities during the 2016 Presidential election," the White House released in...

    Rep. Matt Gaetz said on Monday "compelling evidence" of Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act abuse is coming out in a matter of days or weeks. The Florida Republican was referring to the alleged existence of unreleased transcripts of recorded conversations between FBI informants and former Trump campaign associate George Papadopoulos. "I believe we are days, if not weeks, away for the most in compelling evidence in the biggest political scandal in American history," Gaetz said on Fox News. Former Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., said on Sunday FBI withheld "game changer" transcript material about Papadopoulos from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court when...

    Today’s Campaign Update, Part II (Because The Campaign Never Ends) The cornered rats are really scurrying for cover this week, and ex-CIA Director Dar Adol, er, John Brennan provided today’s best example in an interview with MSNBC’s favorite pet fake Republican, former Jeb! Bush operative Nicolle Wallace. During the course of this brief interview, Brennan admits that the CIA was indeed “coordinating closely” with the FBI in its spying operation that targeted Trump Campaign officials, and continued to push the narrative that none of this obvious spying was in fact “spying.” *sigh* Here’s the clip: As a service to those...

And when you’re citing newspaper articles as corroboration for a factual assertion that you have made, you don’t need an FBI agent to go do a Google search,” said Gowdy, who served on the House Intelligence Committee and is a Fox News contributor. “When the name Sidney Blumenthal is included as part of your corroboration, and when you’re the world’s leading law enforcement agency, you have a problem.” Gowdy did not further explain how the FBI...

    Top Republicans talked up classified documents on Sunday they believe will root out FBI misconduct in the early stages of the Trump-Russia investigation. Over the past few days, GOP lawmakers demanded answers about when the FBI was informed about British ex-spy Christopher Steele's "political motivations" before his unverified dossier was used to obtain a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrant to wiretap Trump campaign adviser Carter Page. Sen. Lindsey Graham, chairman of the Judiciary Committee, sent letters to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz to request documents related to a meeting between Steele and Deputy...

    Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Sen. Lindsey Graham is continuing his effort to help Attorney General William Barr prepare cases against the deep state co-conspirators who tried to depose POTUS Donald Trump via “Spygate.” On Sunday, the South Carolina Republican announced he was working to declassify a bombshell document that he said proves beyond any doubt that fired FBI Director James Comey and his Obama/Hillary sycophants within the bureau and Justice Department knew full well the infamous “Steele Dossier” used to justify Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act court warrants to spy on Trump Team members was bogus. Meaning, of course, that by...

    The “evidence” used by the FBI to secure FISA warrants on Trump adviser Carter Page was known to be suspiciously inaccurate 10 days before procuring the warrants, but the FBI used them anyway. In fact, the FBI swore before the FISA judge that the information had been corroborated when it clearly had not. Information had been given to the FBI demonstrating the motivations behind the Steele Dossier were clearly political and prompted by the Clinton campaign. They knew this going in, but without actual evidence to back their FISA request, they ran with the false story in hopes it would...
