  • FBI Director Wray Caught in LIE Under Oath to Congress

    by Joe Callen FBI Director Christopher Wray lied in a 2018 statement under oath to Congress, when he also smeared Congressman Devin Nunes in an effort to cover for his agency’s FISA abuses. In January of 2018, shortly before then-House Intel Chairman Devin Nunes was set to release his 2-page FISA memo revealing FBI criminal misconduct in targeting Trump campaign advisor Carter Page with surveillance warrants, the FBI smeared Nunes saying it had “grave concerns” about his memo’s accuracy. “As expressed during our initial review, we have grave concerns about material omissions of fact that fundamentally impact the memo’s...

    The [new IG Report] reveals that Comey told Obama and other officials at a White House Situation Room meeting...that "the FBI was trying to determine whether any U.S. person had worked with the Russians" and that they were looking into "four individuals with some association or connection to the Trump campaign." Others present at the meeting [were Rice, Clapper, and Brennan], none of whom were interviewed for [the new IG Report]. Incredibly, Comey claimed that no one at the meeting "responded or followed up with any questions" (p. 110).
  • Meghan McCain: There Was No ‘Deep State Spying’ as Alleged by Donald Trump

    On Tuesday’s broadcast of ABC’s “The View,” co-host Meghan McCain argued President Donald Trump’s rhetoric clouded the issues regarding the FBI’s Russia probe. McCain said, “They said there were 17 inaccuracies and omissions in the process and there was some FBI misconduct and plenty of wrongdoing in the FISA process. I think part of the problem with this is you will see it through whatever lens your political bias is at. As you were pointing out, people make makes mistakes.”

    The great debate about whether the FBI spied on the Trump campaign continues. The question is why there is still any argument. The newly-released report from Justice Department inspector general Michael Horowitz shows that by any definition the FBI did indeed spy. The proof is in the details of the report. In addition to the much-discussed wiretap of Trump campaign foreign policy adviser Carter Page, Horowitz discussed the bureau's use of what is called a CHS -- a confidential human source, or, in more common terms, an informant, and a UCE -- an undercover employee, or a secret agent, to...

    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.

    Former FBI Director James Comey wrote an op-ed on Tuesday denying the FBI ever spied on President Trump’s campaign in 2016 and claiming it was “just good people trying to figure out what was true, under unprecedented circumstances.” Comey wrote in the Washington Post: But go ahead, investigate the investigators, if you must. When those investigations are over, they will find the work was done appropriately and focused only on discerning the truth of very serious allegations. There was no corruption. There was no treason. There was no attempted coup. Those are lies, and dumb lies at that. There were...

    Fox News ^ | May 29 2019 | Tucker Carlson
    On Tuesday, the Washington Post, our hometown newspaper here in the nation's capital, published an op-ed by former FBI Director Jim Comey. In the piece, Comey explains that whatever surveillance the Obama Justice Department conducted on the 2016 Trump campaign was entirely justified and within bounds -- nothing weird about it at all. Yes, American citizens were monitored electronically without their knowledge, but it wasn't spying. Of course, it wasn't "spying." It was "investigating." It was done for your own good. And if you don't like it, you're unpatriotic and possibly, mentally ill. That's Comey's position. What the op-ed did...
  • Byron York: Why was FBI so wrong in Trump-Russia wiretap warrant?

    A huge controversy erupted last year when President Trump declassified parts of the FBI's secret request to wiretap former Trump campaign volunteer foreign policy adviser Carter Page. Defenders and critics of the president argued over whether the October 2016 warrant application to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act court relied extensively on the so-called Steele dossier, which was a collection of anti-Trump allegations compiled by the former British spy Christopher Steele on behalf of the Hillary Clinton campaign. They also argued over whether the warrant adequately informed the court that the dossier was, in fact, a work of political opposition research,...

    If your breath can fog a mirror and you ended up here, you probably have at least some hazy idea that the FBI had filed one, or possibly two, requests for warrants under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), sometime in June and/or July of 2016—having something somehow to do with Donald Trump and his presidential campaign. You likely also have the idea that the FISA court denied the request (or requests). That opening paragraph is about as foggy as breath on a mirror for an inescapable reason. It’s a bet-the-farm certainty that you cannot say with any confidence at...

    Many have long suspected that the FISA warrants on Carter Page and the Trump campaign were phony, but now the proof has begun to emerge. Via @Paul Sperry: The FBI's application to spy on Carter Page and Trump campaign repeats to FISA judge the myth that the GOP platform on Russia was watered down It was not. The declassified FBI warrant application attests to secret FISA court that "THE FBI LEARNED that Page met with at least two Russian officials during the trip,"as if FBI learned this independently,when in fact it's clear it relied on Clinton-paid dossier for the informationTarget...

    Here is former U.S. Attorney Andrew McCarthy today analyzing the redacted FISA documents released by the Justice Department last night. He is very strong in saying he is “shocked” to find that, indeed, the FBI used the unverified and discredited Steele Dossier to justify their need for a FISA Warrant to spy on Carter Page. McCarthy said he really didn’t think they would do that – that he didn’t think something like this could happen here. But it has. . . .

Snip~~~ (If it weren’t for President Obama we might not have done the intelligence community assessment that we did that set up a whole sequence of events which are still unfolding today including Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation. President Obama is responsible for that. It was he who tasked us to do that intelligence community assessment in the first place.)

    Way back when CTH first began the deep dive into the systems and processes that were deployed in the 2015/2016 election cycle we eventually came to the conclusion that everything of substance, within the larger intelligence abuses, revolved around DOJ and FBI abuses of the FISA process. As an outcome of multiple research deep-dives we then focused on a specific foundational block of that usurpation, the fraudulent application presented to the FISA Court by officials within the FBI and DOJ-NSD (National Security Division). The October 21st, 2016, application to the FISA Court for surveillance authority upon U.S. person Carter Page;...

    Over a year after the House intelligence committee demanded that the Justice Department (DOJ) hand over documents related to potential abuses of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, the House voted on June 28 in favor of a resolution demanding that it do so. Despite numerous requests, including several subpoenas, the DOJ has not provided Congress with all of the documents it has requested. The requested documents relate to potential violations of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) by DOJ personnel as it relates to the Trump campaign as well as related matters. Earlier this year, it was revealed by the...

    The Trump transition team may demand an investigation after tens of thousands of emails were handed to the Mueller probe without consent or warrants Late last year, news broke that a federal agency turned over tens of thousands of private emails of Trump transition team officials to the special counsel’s team—without a warrant, and without getting the officials’ permission. Now, according to communications reviewed by The Daily Beast, the transition team is fighting back. They are threatening to call for an inspector general’s investigation of the General Services Administration (GSA), which gave the emails to Mueller, and to potentially try...
