    "Welcome to another hearing of the Trump impeachment committee," Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) quipped during his opening statement at a House Intelligence Committee hearing on Friday. Adam Schiff (D-CA) convened Friday's meeting to question Joseph B. Maher, the Senior Official Performing the Duties of the Under Secretary for Intelligence and Analysis. According to the chairman, Maher has been "preventing a lawful Intelligence Community whistleblower—the former head of an Intelligence Community element—from providing classified testimony to the Committee by delaying security clearances for his attorneys." That whistleblower leveled several allegations against the agency, including that they "suppressed intelligence reports about Russia’s...

  • Nunes Pivots Ad Blitz Toward Calif. Loopholes on Sex Offenses, Riots

    With 60 days to election day, Rep. Devin Nunes (R–Tulare) still hasn’t uttered the name of his opponent on television. Instead, his barrage of television advertising – eclipsing hundreds of thousands of dollars in campaign spending – has turned to another set of issues on the Nov. 3 ballot: a ballot initiative. Two new ads hitting Valley airwaves on Thursday from Nunes are highlighting the hangover effect of a pair of California decriminalization measures – 2014’s Proposition 47 and 2016’s Proposition 57. Prop. 47 notoriously reclassified a bevy of felonies – deemed to be “nonviolent offenses” – as misdemeanors, allowing...
  • Stockman Conviction a Roadmap for Biden/Harris to Jail Conservative Activists

    Former Congressman Steve Stockman, whom leftwing Salon called a “Tea Party darling,” has asked the U.S. Supreme Court to hear his appeal from a 10-year criminal sentence on multiple counts involving raising money from just two GOP donors. You may have heard the term “criminalization of politics.” Steve Stockman’s 2018 conviction is very literally an example. Stockman’s asking the Supreme Court to overturn that politicized conviction should be watched by conservatives who know that a Biden/Harris administration would be a reboot of the lawless and lawbreaking Obama Deep State, but probably even more vindictive towards conservatives. Representative Steve Stockman 2014...

    An inveterate teambuilder, FlynnÂ’s conviction for deeds over words drew critical buy-in from external partners. The result was a robust synergism that proved lethal to AmericaÂ’s foes. Late evening on June 7,, 2006, U.S. Special Forces dumped what was left of Abu Musab al-ZarqawiÂ’s corpse onto the floor of the FBIÂ’s work space on an Iraqi military base. While the ISIS mass murdererÂ’s death represented the culmination of months of joint FBI/military operations, no festivity ensued that night. The animated Special Forces colonel who was the projectÂ’s intelligence director horsewhipped the agents in a sprint to confirm the biometric identification...

"I have a high degree of confidence in our intelligence community, investigators comported themselves responsibly," Jarrett said. "Lindsey Graham is the one that encouraged Sen. McCain to turn over the dossier in the first place to the FBI.""I do know that it’s nearly four years ago and I don’t understand why our focus isn’t on what’s happening right now and today. That’s the investigation I’d like to see," she said. Bartiromo asked about the origins of the Steele dossier: "What’s happening...

    Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe and other top officials reportedly took steps to preserve memos authored by former Director James Comey and other key documents related to the Russia investigation over worries that President Trump would interfere in the probe, CNN reported Thursday. In the days following Comey's ouster in 2017, McCabe reportedly thought that President Trump's decision to remove the FBI director was problematic and, as the then-acting director of the agency, instructed his team to open a criminal case, according to an adapted excerpt from CNN legal analyst Jeffery Toobin's book, "TRUE CRIMES AND MISDEMEANORS: The Investigation...

    (Washington, DC) Judicial Watch announced today the FBI will finally begin processing Andrew McCabe text message for release after a federal court rejected the FBI’s request to dismiss a Judicial Watch Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit filed on behalf of Jeffrey A.

    Two top Republican senators spearheading an investigation into the Biden family’s conflicts of interest while serving at the upper echelons of government blasted Democrats Tuesday for attempting to derail the Senate probe with fewer than 100 days until a presidential election. Congressional Democrats, desperate to shut the three-year investigation down over fears that it might damage their presidential nominee’s chance to capture the White House this fall, have launched a disinformation campaign by accusing Senate Republicans of accepting help from the Russian government, a favorite tactic. Earlier this month, Democrat leadership demanded an FBI briefing over claims of Russian intelligence...

    Former FBI agent Peter Strzok is releasing a book less than two months before this year's presidential election about President Trump and Russia. The book, “Compromised: Counterintelligence and the Threat of Donald J. Trump,” is set to come out Sept. 8, publisher Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Books & Media told the Associated Press. "Russia has long regarded the United States as its ‘Main Enemy,’ and I spent decades trying to protect our country from their efforts to weaken and undermine us,” Strzok said in a statement accompanying the book's announcement.

    House Intel Chairman Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) said a large amount of the FISA warrant to surveil Carter Page has been redacted to cover up the involvement of the Steele dossier and has nothing to do with national security. In an interview with Tucker Carlson Wednesday night he said the public has a right to see the redacted pages and the part the Steele dossier played. TUCKER CARLSON, FOX NEWS: Well, the Carter Page FISA application has been released in part. Big portions of it, though, were redacted and those portions could help reveal the extent to which the Obama...

    U.S. Attorney John Durham's criminal inquiry into the Russia investigation could disrupt the case against retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, according to a top House Republican. Rep. Devin Nunes, the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, told Fox Business on Thursday that there are two factors that could shake up the protracted legal fight. "I think a couple things could intercede here. One could be that Durham or another U.S. attorney comes up with indictments," the California congressman said. "The second thing is that there could be more evidence that could show up." Durham's investigation, which Democrats fear could...

Devin Nunes during a television appearance on Fox News Channel said that "we've now expanded our investigation, full-blown investigation into the Brookings Institute." The congressman said that the two focuses of the investigation are whether Brookings, a tax exempt entity, had engaged in politics, which Nunes said that it has, and whether the institution, which receives foreign donations, took actions to benefit a foreign government. The California Republican's remarks on "Sunday Morning Futures" came as the identity of a Steele Dossier source...

    When you are this close to the institutions, conversations come much easier. According to those with direct knowledge, when Jeff Sessions recused (fire-walled) from anything to do with the special counsel in ’17, ’18, ’19, Rod Rosenstein “should have” held oversight. However, in his Senate Judiciary testimony of June 3, 2020, Rosenstein admitted that he conducted no oversight over the Mueller probe. Rosenstein’s justification was he did not feel it was his position to question their “investigative processes“, later saying “everything was an investigative process“, ergo anything the special counsel was doing was considered valid; nothing was questioned, and Rosenstein...

    On Sunday we reported that the Primary Sub-Source (PSS) for the Steele dossier was Igor Danchenko – the individual behind most of the made up lies in the Steele dossier. Danchenko is the one individual those looking into the Trump – Russia collusion fraud were after – the PSS – the individual who was behind the material amount of Steele dossier lies. At least two sources on the Internet had come to this conclusion by Sunday night.One site that located the PSS is aptly named https://ifoundthepss.blogspot.com/2020/07/unmistakable-proof.html (We’ll refer to this individual and website as IFTPSS.)IFTPSS provided information on the PSS...

    Everything is disconnected until somebody connects it. On February 9, 2018, the DOJ released a batch of captured text messages between Senate Intelligence Committee Vice-Chairman Mark Warner and the lawyer for Christopher Steele, Adam Waldman. At the time the texts were released the media narrative surrounded the top-line story that Senator Warner was having back channel discussions to communicate with the author of the now famous Trump dossier, Chris Steele. However, no-one seemed to wonder why these messages were captured, and even more curiously why they were released. Immediately following the release, SSCI member Marco Rubio, the current acting chairman...
