    As Robert Mueller was ramping up his Russia collusion probe in spring 2017, then-acting Director Andrew McCabe was summoned to the Justice Department for a high-level Sunday morning meeting led by then-Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. McCabe showed up thinking it was a "coordination and logistics issues" meeting for the new special counsel probe, but soon he found he himself was to be the subject of discussion, according to newly declassified notes that McCabe recorded of the gathering. Rosenstein wanted McCabe to recuse himself as FBI director from the Russia probe because McCabe's wife had run for office in 2015...

    On Friday June 19 a trove of 269GB of data was posted to the internet by a group calling itself 'Distributed Denial of Secrets'. The link above leads to a popular Twitter hashtag on this topic. What was leaked were secret law enforcement documents that detail numerous practices of law enforcement. A lot of this is really scary police state stuff like some people here on FR post. Things like how Google keeps user files on all Google users and then passes them to law enforcement. License plate readers are used to track activists left and right. Nevada police used...

    A Manhattan federal judge on Tuesday ordered that a former New York City accountant who admitted to scoping out the New York Stock Exchange for al Qaeda be released early from his 18-year prison sentence. U.S. District Judge Kimba Wood said Sabirhan Hasanoff, 44, of Brooklyn, had shown “extraordinary and compelling” reasons for being resentenced to time served under a law allowing the early “compassionate release” of some prison inmates. Wood, who sentenced Hasanoff in 2013, cited evidence he was the only available caregiver for his mother, who is in poor health, and his “striking and unique efforts” to rehabilitate...

    (Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch announced today that it received 163 pages of emails between former FBI official Peter Strzok and former FBI attorney Lisa Page. The records show that Microsoft Outlook’s exchange server had to recreate multiple meetings that were “missing” from Lisa Page’s initial calendar entries. These missing meetings included the subjects “Going Dark Strategy Meeting,” “Twitter,” and “702 Reauthorization Strategy Coordination Bi-Weekly.” The records were produced in response to Judicial Watch’s January 2018 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit filed after the DOJ failed to respond to a December 2017 request for all communications between Strzok and...

    A court in the United Kingdom ordered British ex-spy Christopher Steele to pay thousands in damages to two Russian bankers named in the former MI6 agent’s dossier as having “illicit” financial ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin. Justice Warby of the Queen’s Bench Division of the British High Court of Justice presided over a weeklong March hearing in the defamation lawsuit brought by the owners of Russia’s Alfa Bank, Petr Aven, Mikhail Fridman, and German Khan, against Orbis Business Intelligence, Steele’s private intelligence firm through which he conducted research in 2016 for Fusion GPS through the Perkins Coie law firm...

    Dr. Anthony Fauci, the government's top infectious diseases expert, emphasized the dangers of Covid-19 on Tuesday, contradicting President Donald Trump's false claim that the coronavirus was only as deadly as the flu. People infected with Covid-19 do display "flu-like" symptoms, Fauci said Tuesday in an interview with NBC News' Kate Snow. But the damage the coronavirus can do "is very much different from influenza."

    Gen. Michael Hayden, the former CIA director under President George W. Bush, got into a public clash on Twitter with Richard Grenell, the former acting Director of National Intelligence under Trump...“The Susan Rice [Obama’s national security adviser] email to herself after the Oval Office meeting was part of the coverup,” Grenell wrote. Hayden, who has spoken out about Trump in the past and announced that he is supporting Biden, responded to Grenell, “You’re an a**hole. Really.” Grenell responded, “I see you don’t like to be exposed. And so you resort to name calling. Transparency isn’t political.”

    Former Obama National Security Advisor Susan Rice said on Tuesday’s broadcast of CNN’s “The Situation Room” that President Donald Trump didn’t “care who he infects,” with coronavirus. Rice said, “Let’s start with the people around him, whose job it is to help do the nation’s business on a daily basis. He could care less about his top advisers, his staff, not to mention the household staff and the ushers and the butlers and the housekeepers and Secret Service. All of these people doing their utmost in the most trying circumstances to serve this man and this country, to whatever effect,...

    Former Special Counsel Robert Mueller criticized his top prosecutor on the collusion probe, Andrew Weissman, for suggesting in his new book that Mueller and his team did not do everything they could have done against President Donald Trump, in an interview with the Washington Post published Tuesday. Mueller told the Post, “It is not surprising that members of the Special Counsel’s Office did not always agree, but it is disappointing to hear criticism of our team based on incomplete information.” He also said the team operated “knowing that our work would be scrutinized from all sides” and sought to make...

    Agents who worked on Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation joked about wiping their cell phones, according to an FBI agent who worked for the special counsel. FBI Agent William Barnett told government investigators last week that he heard other FBI agents at the special counsel’s office (SCO) “comically talk about wiping cellular telephones,” according to a summary of the interview released as part of the court proceedings in the case involving former national security adviser Michael Flynn. “Barnett had a cellular telephone issued by the SCO which he did not ‘wipe.’ Barnett did hear other agents ‘comically’ talk about wiping cellular...

    Washinton Examiner ^ | September 23, 2020 | Byron York
    The political world was stunned on July 24, 2019, when Trump-Russia special counsel Robert Mueller testified before the House and Senate. It was not anything Mueller said that shocked observers — it was his demeanor. The 74-year-old special counsel appeared confused at times. He sometimes had difficulty answering the most basic questions. He had difficulty forming complex sentences. The Mueller at the witness table was a far cry from the Mueller who took over the FBI 18 years earlier. Colleagues remembered a man who was super sharp, on top of everything, a micromanager. Now, many of those watching were concerned....

    Conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch obtained 323 pages of emails between former FBI lovebirds Peter Strzok and Lisa Page showing Comey’s FBI was investigating President Trump over his critical tweets of Barack Obama and the FBI. The FBI is purposely slow-rolling its production of emails to Judicial Watch and only processing 500 pages per month in response to a 2017 FOIA lawsuit. Judicial Watch obtained a March 2017 email Peter Strzok sent his boss Bill Priestap and others about probing President Trump’s tweets about being wiretapped by the FBI. Judicial Watch reported:

    A month before the 2016 presidential election, the FBI met Christopher Steele in Rome and apparently unlawfully shared with the foreign opposition researcher some of the bureau’s most closely held secrets, according to unpublicized disclosures in the recent Justice Department Inspector General report on abuses of federal surveillance powers. What’s more, Steele, the former British spy who compiled the “dossier” of conspiracy theories for the Hillary Clinton campaign, was promised $15,000 to attend the briefing by FBI agents eager to maintain his cooperation in their Trump-Russia collusion investigation codenamed Crossfire Hurricane. That investigation was so closely guarded that only a...

    Not that this will change any opinions in the two camps but can we look at what really happened to this administration with an honest eye? Hillary Clinton and the DNC paid for a former British Spy to gather dirt on Donald Trump in the effort to win the election while smearing his campaign and potential administration. They paid for this through their DC law firm Perkins Coie. https://www.nytimes.com/2017/10/25/us/politics/steele-dossier-trump-expained.html The dossier was based upon ‘a Russian’ contact that was classified and hidden for years from scrutiny. Unfortunately, the “Russian Contact’ Igor Danchenco is really a Ukrainian that lives and works...
