    Special counsel John Durham filed a pre-trial motion in limine on Sept. 13 in his false statements case against Igor Danchenko, the primary sub-source of Christopher Steele’s dossier on Donald Trump. Danchenko, who is charged with five counts of lying to the FBI about his sources for the dossier, had earlier filed a motion to dismiss the charges against him. * * * Perhaps the most stunning disclosure is that Danchenko was given confidential human source (CHS) status by the FBI in March 2017. Notably, this was after Danchenko had disowned the Steele dossier in a January 2017 FBI interview,...

    "[O]ne of the biggest revelations in the motion is that Danchenko himself was a confidential paid human informant!" Special Counsel John Durham's request to unseal a motion in limine pertaining to the trial of Igor Danchenko, who has been identifed as the "primary source" behind ex-British spy Christopher Steele's dossier, has been granted. A motion in limine is a "pretrial motion asking that certain evidence be found inadmissible, and that it not be referred to or offered at trial," according to Cornell's Legal Information Institute. The Special Counsel's motion to include the evidence against Danchenko reveals that the FBI was...

    IN HIS FINAL days in the White House, Donald Trump told top advisers he needed to preserve certain Russia-related documents to keep his enemies from destroying them. The documents related to the federal investigation into Russian election meddling and alleged collusion with Trump’s campaign. At the end of his presidency, Trump and his team pushed to declassify these so-called “Russiagate” documents, believing they would expose a “Deep State” plot against him. According to a person with direct knowledge of the situation and another source briefed on the matter, Trump told several people working in and outside the White House that...

    On June 21, Patel announced that he and Solomon had been appointed by Trump to obtain the declassified Russiagate documents from the archives: Patel said he was going to post them on his website. DOJ, however, already knew what Patel and Solomon would only discover a month later: The archives didn’t have the declassified documents. So if Patel said he would post them, law enforcement may have wondered, where would he get them from? The answer must have seemed clear: Mar-a-Lago. On June 22, the Justice Department subpoenaed surveillance video footage of the storage locker. According to a New York...

    Columnist Lee Smith, author of The Plot Against the President: The True Story of How Congressman Devin Nunes Uncovered the Biggest Political Scandal in U.S. History, said colleagues and peers of his — whose judgment he trusts — speculate that the FBI’s raid of former President Donald Trump’s private residence at Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach, FL, was a search for documents related to its “Russiagate” surveillance operation of the 45th president. “I think the best way to understand this is in the context of a six-year-long operation targeting Donald Trump, Donald Trump’s aides, and Donald Trump’s supporters,” Smith said on...

    On Monday Kash Patel, the former chief of staff to the Acting United States Secretary of Defense under President Donald Trump, joined Tucker Carlson to discuss the recent raid on Mar-a-Lago and the release of the highly redacted affidavit to raid the former president’s home. During the discussion Kash Patel told Tucker’s audience the real reason why the raid took place. It was to prevent the disclosure of unclassified Russiagate documents that implicated the FBI and DOJ in the garbage investigation of candidate and then President Trump. The FBI raided Mar-a-Lago to effectively steal the documents and prevent them from...

    The affidavit is out. The one wherein the U.S. government found it necessary to raid a former president’s home earlier this month. And despite a whopping 413 redacted lines (yes, I counted each one), the document appears to implicate the FBI, DOJ, and Judge Bruce Reinhart in colluding to remove documents related to the long-debunked “Russiagate” saga. Here’s why.Page three of the document asserts U.S. Code 793 (e), 1519, and 2071, which means they were looking for general, “national defense information,” and alleging that there had been some concealment, mutilation, or destruction of records without the approval of the bureaucracy....

    The motives behind the FBI’s raid of President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago are many. All relate to corruption in our government. None provide support for the raid. President Trump unclassified documents related to Russiagate, the Deep State’s attempted coup of the Trump Administration. Then he filed a RICO suit against the government. This scared the bad actors in the Deep State.

    Not wanting to put too much credibility behind any Newsweek report; however, the claims within the article mirror what we have suspected all along. Essentially, the nub of the article states the DOJ claim to “retrieve federal documents” was a cover story so the FBI could retrieve evidence Trump took from DC showing his Russiagate targeting. This is called “throwing a bag over it.” Newsweek – The FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago last Monday was specifically intended to recover Donald Trump’s personal “stash” of hidden documents, two high-level U.S. intelligence officials tell Newsweek. To justify the unprecedented raid on a former...

    The FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago last Monday was specifically intended to recover Donald Trump's personal "stash" of hidden documents, two high-level U.S. intelligence officials tell Newsweek. To justify the unprecedented raid on a former president's residence and protect the source who revealed the existence of Trump's private hoard, agents went into Trump's residence on the pretext that they were seeking all government documents, says one official who has been involved in the investigation. But the true target was this private stash, which Justice Department officials feared Donald Trump might weaponize. "They collected everything that rightfully belonged to the U.S. government...

    Justice Department officials appear to be maneuvering to block the disclosure of documents from the so-called "Russiagate" controversy, according to a top Pentagon official from the Trump administration. Kash Patel appeared on Fox News on Sunday and defended former President Donald Trump's claims that he issued sweeping declassification orders of documents after the FBI raided his Mar-a-Lago resort and seized more than a dozen boxes of materials in an investigation that could have national security implications.

    he lead investigator in the House of Representatives committee on the Trump Russia hoax says he knows why the FBI raided former president Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort, and it didn’t have anything to do with scary-sounding “classified documents relating to nuclear weapons,” as the DOJ got The Washington Post to spread on its behalf. Kash Patel believes something more is afoot than a beef between Trump, the General Services Administration (GSA), and the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA). The former federal national security prosecutor and Trump Administration Chief of Staff for the Department of Defense believes the FBI raided...

    A perp walk and a jail term might not be enough to satisfy Tiffany Cross's bloodlust for Donald Trump. Now we're talking the possibility of . . . the needle! As we've previously noted, MSNBC's Cross harbors a lurid fantasy of Donald Trump being arrested "COPS"-style. She broke that out again on her Saturday show, specifying "handcuffed" and with a "perp walk." A bit later in the show, Cross raised the possibility that Trump might be "trafficking" nuclear secrets to the Saudis or the Russians. Her guest, Andy Weber, a former Department of Defense official, said that Putin would be...

    Spending time on Twitter can be illuminating. Never have I seen so much spamming going on from the left all about how Trump "stole" classified documents. You could call it the "Crapper Caper." I have repeatedly pointed out that the President can declassify anything he chooses. But it's not about that. It's about something very different. Trump and his lawyers were cooperating with the National Archives and had already returned 15 boxes of materials. Than came a June meeting: Trump's attorneys were present at that meeting and the sources say the former president himself stopped in to say hello for...

    Akey senator says a top FBI official has been moved from his leadership perch in Washington after internal whistleblowers complained he was part of an effort to interfere in politically sensitive investigations, allegations Director Chris Wray now calls "deeply troubling." Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), the top Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee, told Just the News on Thursday that the FBI alerted him that Assistant Agent in Charge Timothy Thibault had been moved to another unspecified job. The transfer came after Grassley reported extensive information to the FBI and Justice Department inspector general that Thibault had expressed political bias in...
  • Court to unseal Christopher Steele deposition

    The depositions given by former British spy Christopher Steele and a longtime associate of John McCain must be unsealed, a federal judge said Thursday. U.S. District Court Judge Ursula Ungaro overruled the objections of both Steele and David Kramer to make the depositions public. The pair gave testimony in a lawsuit brought against BuzzFeed in December 2018 by a Russian Internet entrepreneur. The businessman, Aleksej Gubarev, was referenced in the infamous dossier compiled by Steele about President Trump’s alleged connections to Russia. Gubarev objected to BuzzFeed’s publishing of the dossier in January 2017, which accused him of using his companies...
