Intro to ‘… A “Soft Coup” Against President Trump’

One of my favorite WordPress blogs is Ares and Athena (let’s abbreviate that as A & A). A & A often does the same thing I do in cross posting from others subject matter that I find interesting.

 

A & A picked up a fascinating perspective from RedState blogger streiff. To be honest I’m not exactly a frequent flyer at RedState, so I’m unfamiliar about streiff writing. So I attempted to find something about the person.

 

I quickly realized that streiff is a pseudonym. I have no idea if streiff is male or female. I discovered that streiff is a pro-Trump blogger of some notoriety at RedState and seems to have been a part of the controversy of a RedState purge of pro-Trump bloggers but has managed to find his/her way back to RedState. If you are unaware of the RedState firing of bloggers, I’ll let you research the controversy because I really don’t care. As I said, I’m not a RedState frequent flyer.

 

HOWEVER, this streiff post picked up by A & A does disseminate a perspective on the Deep State coup attempt against President Trump that more people should be aware of to note the tactics probably will continue by other means.

 

Streiff builds his narrative by sharing some facts that I’ll let you read in the cross post, but here is an excerpt of the streiff wants you to grasp:

 

One could speculate that it was more than a soft coup against Trump. If all the reports we’ve received are correct, this resembles more of a decapitation strike aimed at taking out all resistance to the Democrat party. If the Republican President, the NRA, and other conservative groups can be alleged to have all been under the influence of a foreign power, albeit a Third World kleptocracy with an GDP smaller than New York State, then the entire opposition to the Democrats is discredited for years to come. The reason I don’t find this far fetched is that four years ago I would never have believed that the FBI and CIA would have interjected themselves into a presidential election on the side of one of the candidates and I never would have believed the UN Ambassador would be unmasking the personal communications of American citizens at the rate of one per work day.

 

If that is the case, then a lot of very powerful people need to be sharing a cell with … BE TANTALIZED AND READ THE CROSS POST.

 

Ares and Athena introduced the streiff post with this (posted today 7/28/19):

 

Trump’s  election threw a huge roadblock on the highway to dystopia. Thus, a desperate elitist/leftist attempt ensued to paint all opposition, especially Trump, as Russian lackeys via false accusations and naked propaganda.

 

If they were successful, his election would be invalidated. Thus, the festivities of the politically and morally corrupt DC machine and their selling out of America for their own gain  could continue.

 

The following article reveals some interesting information regarding one aspect of the plan and its implication.

 

And now the cross post below.

Secret FBI Informant In The Maria Butina Case Says He Was Part Of A “Soft Coup” Against President Trump

Maria Butina

 

One of the saddest episodes to emerge from the anti-Russia hysteria the Democrats and NeverTrump weenies managed to generate after the 2016 election is the case of Maria Butina. (You can chant “Russia is not our friend” under your breath to create the correct ambiance.) Butina, a member of a nascent Russian gun rights movement, was sentenced to 18 months in prison for failing to register under the Foreign Agents Registration Act. She was never accused of being an intelligence agent. She is in prison for doing what Tony Podesta did for years and got White House invitations. Butina’s misfortune was to be Russian and to be interested in working with the NRA. Because the NRA supports Republicans, this became a convenient tool to claim the NRA was a Russian influenced organization…a charge that was actually made on this very site…and therefore illegitimate.

 

Yesterday, a pretty amazing thing happened. According to an exclusive report by Sara Carter (who seems to be one of the very few political journalists, liberal or conservative, not using Jake Tapper’s Twitter timeline for story ideas) the FBI aimed an informant at Butina with orders to begin a sexual relationship with her and then lied to Butina’s defense team about the informant and what the informant said about her intent because his reports undermined the government’s case.

This is the set up:

 

[Overstock.com CEO Patrick] Byrne was a keynote speaker on July, 8, 2015 at Freedom Fest, a yearly Libertarian gathering that hosts top speakers in Las Vegas. Shortly after his address, Butina approached him. She was flattering and repeatedly told him she was a fan of his, saying she was a graduate student that had studied the famous libertarian Militon [sic] Friedman.

 

He spoke to her shortly and “brushed her off.”

 

The young redheaded Russian graduate student then approached him again over the course of the conference and explained that she worked for the Vice Chairman of the Central Bank of Russia and sent by them to make contact with Byrne.

 

She also said “did you know you’re a famous man in Russia, we watch videos about you and your relationship with Milton Freeman.”

 

She said she was appointed to lead Russia’s gun right’s group by Lieutenant-General Mikhail Kalashnikov, who was a Russian general, most notably known for his AK-47 machine gun design. The designation by Kalashnikov is considered a huge honor and Byrne then had an “extensive conversation about Russian history and I understood her designation about Kalishnikov was significant.”

 

She wanted to invite Byrne to Russia to speak at the Central Bank before dignitaries. The speaking engagement would be at a major resort for three days. Butina told Byrne the event would offer him the opportunity to meet senior Russian officials and oligarchs. He didn’t accept the offer because of his security clearance. He then reported Butina and her offer to the FBI.

 

Byrne was a little suspicious of everything because Butina confided that she was afraid she was being monitored and thought it would be best if they disguised their meetings as a romantic relationship. He also reported it because Byrne was a part-time FBI informant.

 

When he contacted the FBI and then subsequently for the next few months “instead what I got was vague instructions that it would be ok to get to know her better.”

 

He said there was very little response from the FBI after his initial contact, until Butina asked him to come meet her in New York City. He told the FBI he didn’t want any vague instructions on whether to meet Butina or not because “I didn’t want my security clearance to get pulled.”

 

At that point the FBI gave him an explicit “green light” to meet with her. He rented a hotel room with two bedrooms because he was under the impression that the romantic texts were simply her way to cover for communicating with him. However, she arrived at the hotel beforehand, occupied the room before Byrne’s arrival, and when he arrived, she made clear that her flirtatious texts were not simply a disguise.

 

Byrne said that the FBI agents made clear they were skeptical that Butina might be of interest, dismissing her as simply a normal 26 year old Russian graduate student. Over time, Byrne and Butina developed an intimate relationship but at the same time he alleges he was continuously reporting on Butina to the FBI in an effort to convince them that it might be worthwhile to introduce her to some of his contacts at the Council on Foreign Relations. He also noted he reported to the FBI his interactions more frequently with Butina starting in December, 2015, both out of a desire not to lose the possibility of something good coming from this encounter, but also, because Butina was starting to speak more frequently of meeting with big shots in Republican circles.

 

Ultimately, Byrne became convinced that Butina was basically a very enthusiastic person doing exactly what she claimed to be doing: trying to build linkages between this Russian gun rights group and the NRA and conservative groups in the US and that she was not acting on behalf of the Russian government.

 

After her arrest, her lawyer made a demand for so-called “Brady” material and the FBI told them there was none. The FBI lying to sandbag a defense attorney…can you see my shocked face?

But this is the interesting part:

 

Oddly, Byrne’s name was not disclosed by prosecutors in the case or by the FBI. And despite the government’s earlier efforts to paint Butina as a Russian spy attempting to infiltrate Republican circles she was never investigated by Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe, which charged 25 Russian agents with interfering in the U.S. election. Further, the FBI, unlike convicted Russian bombshell spy Anna Chapman, did nothing to stop Butina from meeting with high level Republican and conservative figures. The bureau also didn’t warn those conservative figures she had made contact with,  even though they had her under surveillance and allegedly Byrne had been reporting on her during that time. As noted in a column by The Hill’s John Solomon Chapman’s actions were handled differently than Butina. When one of Chapman’s associates, who went by the name of Cynthia Murphy, made contact with Alan Patricof, a major Democratic donor close to Hillary Clintonthe FBI acted swiftly to arrest the entire cell.

 

[Butina attorney Robert] Driscoll said there was suspicion that the FBI did not disclose all the information it had on Butina and he stated that he believed “Patrick is not the only one” who was giving information to the FBI.

 

Why does this matter?

 

We’re seeing a pattern. When the FBI suspected that Carter Page was possibly compromised by the Russians, instead of following normal procedure and giving then-candidate Trump a defensive briefing and the opportunity to remove Page from the campaign, what did the FBI do? Nothing. We know they did that service for John McCain in 2008 and why they elected not to in 2015-16 is a question that needs to be answered. If Page had been fired from the Trump campaign in 2015 much of what happened since then would not have taken place.

 

Earlier this week the attorney for Joseph Mifsud intimated that his client, the guy who allegedly kicked off “Crossfire Hurricane” by telling George Papadopoulos that the Russians had “dirt” on Clinton, worked for western intelligence agencies. Bolstering this is the fact that Robert Mueller never claims that Mifsud was working for the Russian government and Mueller never charged Mifsud with lying to the FBI in interviews despite the fact that he did (see Jim Jordan Fillets Mueller On Joseph Mifsud Not Being Charged, Exposes Serious Credibility Issues With The Probe).

 

Recall that the New York Times confirmed that a woman dangled in front of Papadopoulos as a possible romantic liaison was, in fact, working for some US agency. We hope it was the FBI because if it was the CIA a boatload of laws were broken (see FBI Does Preemptive Damage Control By Confirming The Trump Campaign Was The Target Of A Spying Operation).

 

And so the push by John Durham to interview Joseph Mifsud and rumors that extensive exculpatory information existed on Page and Papadopoulos that would have put their activities in a different light brings new significance.

 

Back to Byrne. Why did he come forward?

 

Byrne’s decision to come forward didn’t come lightly. However, he said it was necessary after watching what had transpired between the FBI, the intelligence community and the probe into President Trump’s campaign over the past several years.

 

“It was something I knew I had to do,” he told this reporter. “Those running the operation were not honest and in the end I realized I was being used in some sort of soft coup.”

 

One could speculate that it was more than a soft coup against Trump. If all the reports we’ve received are correct, this resembles more of a decapitation strike aimed at taking out all resistance to the Democrat party. If the Republican President, the NRA, and other conservative groups can be alleged to have all been under the influence of a foreign power, albeit a Third World kleptocracy with an GDP smaller than New York State, then the entire opposition to the Democrats is discredited for years to come. The reason I don’t find this far fetched is that four years ago I would never have believed that the FBI and CIA would have interjected themselves into a presidential election on the side of one of the candidates and I never would have believed the UN Ambassador would be unmasking the personal communications of American citizens at the rate of one per work day.

 

If that is the case, then a lot of very powerful people need to be sharing a cell with Tiny the White Supremacist Biker and their organizations need to be burned to the ground. If it isn’t a global conspiracy and just a series of events carried out by politically motivated law enforcement and intelligence agents, they need to do hard time and everyone associated with them reduced to penury.

FISA Warrant to Spy on Trump Illegal

One doesn’t have to be a rocket scientist to comprehend the FBI/DOJ pursuit to get a FISA warrant to spy on Donald Trump based on the Steele Dossier hoax was known by those Obama Administration Departments to be illegal.

 

BUT since the Dem Party has had a history of breaking the law and getting away with it AND under the belief Crooked Hillary would win election to POTUS on Election Day 2016, the Dems undoubtedly felt safe in lawbreaking spying on then candidate Trump. Even with proof, the Dem machine in government (aka the Deep State) under Barack Hussein Obama felt above the law.

 

I’m not certain as yet how John Solomon uncovered proof connected to an illegal FISA warrant used against Trump, but he has. Solomon has found Bruce Ohr warned FBI/DOJ the Steele Dossier was tainted and those powers-that-be proceeded anyway to get the FISA spy warrant.

 

Last night’s Hannity interviewed John Solomon, Sara Carter and Gregg Jarrett on this illegal FISA spy warrant. The general consensus was laws were broken. If laws were broken, the Dem history of zero accountability implies no prosecutions will follow.

 

If the Trump DOJ ignores the Obama Deep State plants and grows a pair, perhaps a jury formed from WE THE PEOPLE can decide guilty or not-guilty.

HUGE: Top DOJ Officials Were WARNED ‘Biased’ Dossier Was Connected to Hillary – Corrupt DOJ Officials Then Went to Work For Mueller

 

By Cristina Laila

January 16, 2019

The Gateway Pundit

 

Bruce Ohr

 

According to a new report out by award-winning investigative journalist John Solomon, former top DOJ official, Bruce Ohr warned FBI and DOJ officials that Steele’s dossier was connected to Hillary Clinton and cautioned them it may be biased — weeks BEFORE they obtained a FISA warrant on Carter Page.

 

Twice-demoted DOJ official Bruce Ohr briefed FBI and DOJ officials in July and August of 2016 and cautioned them about Steele’s connection to Hillary’s camp and warned them about political bias.

 

Two of the top DOJ officials, Andrew Weissmann and Zainab Ahmad then migrated to Mueller’s team to hunt down President Trump!

 

This crucial information provided to the FBI by Bruce Ohr was omitted weeks later from the FISA warrant application that the FBI submitted to the court to spy on Donald Trump’s presidential campaign through advisor Carter Page.

 

John Solomon of The Hill reported:

 

Ohr’s activities, chronicled in handwritten notes and congressional testimony I gleaned from sources, provide the most damning evidence to date that FBI and DOJ officials may have misled federal judges in October 2016 in their zeal to obtain the warrant targeting Trump adviser Carter Page just weeks before Election Day.

 

They also contradict a key argument that House Democrats have made in their formal intelligence conclusions about the Russia case.

 

Since it was disclosed last year that Steele’s dossier formed a central piece of evidence supporting the FISA warrant, Justice and FBI officials have been vague about exactly when they learned that Steele’s work was paid for by the law firm representing the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee (DNC).

 

Last year, the House Intel Committee released a 2-page FISA memo showing the dossier formed an essential part of the initial and three subsequent renewal FISA application against Carter Page.

 

The FBI claimed it was “unaware of any derogatory information” about Christopher Steele, that Steele was “never advised … as to the motivation behind the research” but that the FBI “speculates” that those who hired Steele were “likely looking for information to discredit” Trump’s campaign.

 

Bruce Ohr’s testimony to congressional investigators last summer revealed FBI and DOJ officials had no reason to speculate. Ohr told investigators that he explicitly warned the FBI officials that Christopher Steele was biased against Donald Trump and was working on a project connected to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.

 

John Solomon continues:

 

“I certainly told the FBI that Fusion GPS was working with, doing opposition research on Donald Trump,” Ohr told congressional investigators, adding that he warned the FBI that Steele expressed bias during their conversations.

 

“I provided information to the FBI when I thought Christopher Steele was, as I said, desperate that Trump not be elected,” he added. “So, yes, of course I provided that to the FBI.”

 

When pressed why he would offer that information to the FBI, Ohr answered: “In case there might be any kind of bias or anything like that.” He added later, “So when I provided it to the FBI, I tried to be clear that this is source information, I don’t know how reliable it is. You’re going to have to check it out and be aware.”

 

Investigative reporter Sara Carter has the exchange between Trey Gowdy and Bruce Ohr during Ohr’s testimony revealing the names of the top DOJ officials:

 

Under intense questioning from former North Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy, Ohr named the officials he informed about his contact with Steele.

 

“I spoke with some people in the Criminal Division, other career officials who dealt with some of these matters,” Ohr told Gowdy.

 

“Yes,” said Ohr. “So, I was about to tell you. One of them was Bruce Swartz, who is the counselor for International Affairs in the Criminal Division; a person who was working with him at the time, working on similar matters in the Criminal Division was Zainab Ahmad; and a third person who was working on some—some of these matters I believe was Andrew Weissmann.”

 

John Solomon points out that Bruce Ohr’s testimony about his contacts with top DOJ officials in the summer of 2016 destroys Adam Schiff’s junk counter-memo where he argued that Bruce Ohr’s contacts with the FBI began “weeks after the election and more than a month after the Court approved the initial FISA application.”

 

The FBI is required to present exculpatory evidence to the FISA court so by omitting this information, it is clear that Obama’s corrupt FBI/DOJ abused the FISA system.

Clinton Whistleblowers: Thursday’s Public Hearing to Reveal “Explosive” Information


It’s been about two years (give or take) since Crooked Hillary and Slick Willie evidence began to be exposed to the public. A lack of smoking gun dot connections, a coverup-minded Obama Administration and a colluding Mainstream Media (MSM) have protected the Clintons for quite some time.

 

So, I wait with baited breath in hope this Sara Carter article will prove true that a hearing before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee are deserving recipients of criminal Justice.

Clinton Whistleblowers: Thursday’s Public Hearing to Reveal “Explosive” Information

 

By Sara Carter
December 12, 2018 | 3:31 PM EST

SaraCarter.com

 

Crooked Hillary

 

A trove of documents on the Clinton Foundation alleging possible pay for play and tax evasion have been turned over to the FBI and IRS by several investigative whistleblowers, who will be testifying in an open hearing before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Thursday, according to the committee and lawmakers.

 

Roughly 6,000 documents that are expected to reveal the nearly two-year investigation by the whistleblowers with a private firm called MDA Analytics LLC, which allegedly turned over the documents more than a year and a half ago to the IRS, according to John Solomon, who first published the report last week in The Hill

 

The whistleblowers are former federal criminal investigators, who allege that the Clinton Foundation was “engaged in illegal activities and may be liable for millions of dollars in delinquent taxes and penalties,” according to Solomon.

 

The Department of Justice and the FBI’s Little Rock, Ark. field office, which is believed to be investigating the foundation, have allegedly obtained the documentation from the whistleblowers as well, according to lawmakers who’ve spoken with the whistleblowers.

 

Clinton Foundation officials could not be immediately reached for comment.

 

However, a former whistleblower, who has spoken with agents from the Little Rock FBI field office last year and worked for years as an undercover informant collecting information on Russia’s nuclear energy industry for the bureau, noted his enormous frustration with the DOJ and FBI. He describes as a two-tiered justice system that failed to actively investigate the information he provided years ago on the Clinton Foundation and Russia’s dangerous meddling with the U.S. nuclear industry and energy industry during the Obama administration.

 

William D. Campbell’s story was first published by this reporter in 2017. He turned over more than 5,000 documents and detailed daily briefs to the bureau when he served as a confidential informant reporting on Russia’s nuclear giant Rosatom. Campbell worked as an energy consultant, gaining the trust of Russians and providing significant insight into Russia’s strategic plans to gain global dominance in the uranium industry. He reported on Russian’s intentions to build a closer relationship with Obama administration officials, to include then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, as reported. The documents he turned over to the DOJ, which were reviewed by this news site, showed Campbell had also provided highly sensitive information both related to the uranium case, as well as other intelligence matters, since 2006.

 

Special Counsel Robert Mueller was the director of the FBI at the time Campbell was a confidential informant and according to Campbell, the information was briefed to Mueller by his FBI handlers.

 

Rep. Mark Meadows

 

“(Mueller) received the documents, copies of which I still have, over a period of years and ignored a national security threat to the United States because of his political preference,” said Campbell, who said he is frustrated that the investigation into the Clinton Foundation and the other information he provided was apparently ignored years ago.

 

“These men were in charge of transport of nuclear materials (inside the United States) while committing criminal activity here in the United States and signing major US utility contracts,” said Campbell, referring to the information he provided the FBI on the American company Transportation Logistics International, also known as TLI, was the primary transport company for Russian enriched uranium sold to the United States.

 

“One teacup of what they were transporting both domestically and abroad could close down Wall Street or Washington,” Campbell warned. “(Mueller) ignored and delayed their arrests over years while I was risking my life undercover and interacting with these (Vladimir) Putin appointees both here in the United States and overseas.”

 

But Rep. Mark Meadows, chairman of the Freedom Caucus and member of the committee, said this time it will be different. He noted that the investigation is apparently ongoing with the FBI and DOJ and believes the information being delivered for Thursday’s hearing to be ‘explosive’ in nature and may help connect the dots.

 

Meadow’s told Fox New’s Martha MaCallum Tuesday, “the American people, they want to bring some closure, not just a few sound bites, here or there, so we’re going to be having a hearing this week, not only covering over some of those 6,000 pages that you’re talking about, but hearing directly from three whistleblowers that have actually spent the majority of the last two years investigating this.”

 

Meadows, who’s also on President Donald Trump’s short-list to replace Chief of Staff Gen. John Kelly, noted that some “allegations (whistleblowers) make are quite explosive.”

 

“We just look at the contributions. Now everybody’s focused on the contributions for the Clinton Foundation and what has happened just in the last year,” he said. “But if you look at it, it had a very strong rise, the minute she was selected as secretary of state. It dipped down when she was no longer there.”

 

“And then rose again, when she decided to run for president. So there are all kinds of allegations of pay-to-play and that kind of thing,” Meadows added.

President Trump May Declassify the 20 FISA Docs Congress Wants


After a so-called Trump Administration insider wrote anonymously at the NY Times claiming to be a part of the Leftist Resistance against President Trump, the President should do more declassifying of redacted documents than just 20 pages of a FISA warrant allowing the FBI to spy on Carter Page as reported by Sara Carter.

 

Kelly McLaughlin writing for Business Insider has a list to date of Trump Administration Officials who have DENIED being the identity of the anonymous Deep State Trump traitor. I suspect Attorney General  Jeff Sessions or some DOJ/FBI upper echelon Obama hold-over is my suspect. Glaringly, Sessions is not on the McLaughlin denial list.

 

Still, if Sara Carter is correct, declassifying the Carter Page FISA warrant is a good first step of swamp draining and sticking it to the Deep State perpetrating a coup against the duly and Constitutionally elected President Donald Trump.

President Trump May Declassify the 20 FISA Docs Congress Wants

 

By Sara Carter 

September 05, 2018 2:58 PM EDT

SaraCarter.com

 

President Donald Trump

 

President Trump is expected to declassify the redacted 20 pages of documents from the controversial Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant that have still not been made public, which allowed the FBI to spy on short-term campaign volunteer Carter Page, numerous sources told SaraACarter.com. This comes after nearly a year of stonewalling by the Department of Justice at the demand of lawmakers, who claim that the 20 redacted pages will reveal explosive information about the FBI’s handling of the Trump-Russia investigation, according to sources.

 

However, President Trump, who has been under pressure from some DOJ officials not to release the classified documents, “could always change his mind and it’s not a guarantee that it will happen, but the indications are that it more than likely will possibly be before the end of this week,” said a U.S. official, who spoke on condition of anonymity due to the sensitive nature of the subject.

 

In July, the Justice Department released over 400 previously top-secret documents connected to the Page warrant. However, more than 20 pages of the FISA document remained highly classified and have only been viewed by a select group of Congressional members and investigators. The lawmakers are now asking that those documents be made public. Behind the scenes, the battle between Justice Department officials and senior members of Congress intensified over the past year, leading lawmakers to call on President Trump to intervene and declassify the documents.

 

In a 38 minute interview with the Daily Caller Tuesday, President Trump said the White House is “looking at it very seriously right now because the things that have gone on are so bad, so bad. I mean they were surveilling my campaign. If that happened on the other foot, they would’ve considered that treasonous. They would’ve considered that spying at the highest level. Can you imagine if we were doing that to Obama instead of Obama and his people doing that to us? Everybody would’ve been in jail for the next 500 years. OK? Can you believe it, where they paid this guy millions of dollars, it turned out? If you look at all of the things that are happening.”

 

Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee Devin Nunes (R-CA) told Fox New’s [sic] Sean Hannity this month that the remaining classified documents regarding Page need to be declassified because “there is exculpatory evidence that we have seen of classified documents that need to be declassified. The judges should have been presented with this exculpatory evidence that the FBI and DOJ had.”

 

In July, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles Grassley (R- IA) also requested the declassification of embattled Department of Justice official Bruce Ohr, whose wife Nellie Ohr worked in 2016 as a contractor for the research firm Fusion GPS, which was paid by the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton campaign to investigate Trump’s alleged ties to Russia.

 

“All these documents will expose how the FBI handled this investigation and give clarity to the public,” said one congressional official, who spoke on condition of anonymity. “The American people deserve to know the truth and our country needs to move on.”

 

The FISA documents, which were heavily redacted by the FBI and Department of Justice are expected to reveal detailed information showing that the bureau withheld exculpatory information from the highly secretive Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) and the role former British spy Christopher Steele had in getting his unverified anti-Trump dossier to the bureau. Steele was hired by Fusion GPS’s Glenn Simpson, a former Wall Street Journal reporter, to compile the dossier.

 

New documentation obtained by Congress are already revealing the deep ties Ohr had to Steele and the bureau. Recent texts, notes and emails obtained by Congress reveal that Ohr worked as a backchannel for the FBI to move information being collected by Steele to the FBI.

 

The documentation also exposes Ohr’s inter-workings with the FBI and that he was in communication with former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, former FBI Special Agent Peter Strzok and his paramour former FBI Attorney Lisa Page. Strzok was recently fired by the FBI and Page has since left the bureau. McCabe was fired earlier this year after DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz released a scathing report showing that McCabe lied on numerous times to investigators and leaked information to the media.

 

A recent report by Fox New’s [sic] Catherine Herridge also exposes Ohr’s ties in 2016 to Robert Mueller’s Special Counsel’s lead prosecutor Andrew Weissmann. Weissmann, who was then chief of the DOJ’s criminal fraud division, was “kept in the loop” by Ohr about his contact with Steele and the FBI, according to the report.

 

Earlier this year, SaraACarter.com revealed that before Weissmann was appointed to the Special Counsel, he arranged a meeting with AP journalists investigating Paul Manafort and his Ukrainian business dealings. On April 11, 2017 Weissmann, the AP reporters and several FBI officials Weissmann brought into the meeting met with the reporters.

 

On April, 12 the AP published the explosive expose on Manafort.

 

According to sources who spoke with this news outlet, the meeting was attended by three different litigating offices. Two employees from the U.S. Justice Department and the other representative was from the U.S. Attorney’s office, according to the sources. FBI agents also attended the meeting, law enforcement sources confirmed.

 

At the time Peter Carr, a spokesman for Mueller, and chief Justice Department spokeswoman Sarah Isgur Flores also declined to comment.

 

According to sources, FBI officials at the meeting complained about Weissmann’s failure to follow protocol with journalists. They issued a formal complaint against him to the Justice Department, as they were concerned the meeting with the journalists could harm the ongoing probe into Russia’s involvement in the 2016 presidential election.

I watched Sara Carter report on Hannity last night on issue that Bruce Ohr was more involved in the Steele Dossier frame-up of President Trump than previously thought. How does she know? Newly discovered documents of Ohr notes indicating earlier dates on Steele Dossier collaboration between Bruce Ohr (DOJ), Strzok and other FBI cadres as well as the fired Christopher Steele. Ohr was acting as a go-between betwixt Steele and the FBI, even though Steele had been fired.

Long after being fired from the FBI’s Russia probe, UK spy Christopher Steele emailed with Bruce Ohr in August 2017 about being reinstated to help Mueller. Steele was paid by Fusion GPS to work for Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the DNC to dig up Russian dirt on Trump. In November 2016, Steele was deemed “not suitable” to serve as an FBI informer after being caught leaking information to the pro-Clinton media.

BREAKING: Bruce Ohr Docs Raise Serious Questions

 

By Sara Carter

August 08, 2018 7:51 PM EDT

SaraCarter.com

 

  • New docs were written by Ohr roughly 2 weeks after the 2016 presidential election

 

  • Notes mention Strzok & Page and have many lawmakers and investigators concerned

 

  • Separate docs show FBI had backchannel investigation which they never disclosed to FISC

 

Strzok & Ohr

 

A law enforcement sensitive document written by senior Justice Department official, Bruce Ohr, is raising serious concerns amongst congressional investigators regarding testimony provided to Congress on the involvement of FBI special agents in the probe into the Trump campaign and its alleged Russian ties.

 

Nov. 21, 2016, the handwritten document lists former FBI Special Agent Peter Strzok, his paramour FBI Attorney Lisa Page and Special Agent Joe Pientka (who along with Strzok interviewed former National Security Advisor Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn).

 

Strzok, who was the lead investigator in the FBI’s investigation into Trump, was removed last August from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation after the DOJ’s Inspector General discovered a barrage of anti-Trump text messages between him and Page. Page, who was working as the general counsel for now fired Deputy Attorney General Andrew McCabe, is no longer with the FBI.

 

Page’s name on Ohr’s notes raises a number of questions, particularly since she would not have normally been involved in national security investigations, a congressional investigator said. It also raises a number of questions regarding McCabe’s possible involvement and whether was he authorizing any meetings or communications with Ohr in regard to the Trump investigation, the investigators noted.

 

Ohr was demoted twice by the Justice Department for his failure to disclose that his wife, Nellie Ohr, worked for the now-embattled research firm Fusion GPS, which produced the infamous anti-Trump dossier. The new document is only one in a series of notes commemorating his communications with dossier author, Christopher Steele, which have been obtained by the congressional oversight committees investigating the FBI’s handling of the Trump Russia investigation.

 

Bruce Ohr

 

Another congressional investigator told SaraACarter.com that the notes written by Ohr raise “concerns of previously undisclosed communications with the FBI and Ohr and how extensive these communications were. It also raises concerns about testimony given by Lisa Page, who downplayed her interactions with Ohr in her (July 13) testimony to Congress.”

 

The notes at the bottom of the memo state, in sloppy writing, “no prosecution yet, pushing ahead on M case,” in reference to Paul Manafort, who is now facing years old charges on financial crimes and money laundering, according to congressional investigators.

 

Ohr also stated, “may go back to Chris,” in reference to Christopher Steele.

 

“The more we learn about this, the more it seems like Bruce Ohr was a really key figure in this circle comprising those both outside and inside the government who were colluding with each other to manufacture the Trump-Russia investigation,” said a third congressional staffer involved in the Russia investigations.

 

Separate Documents Reveal FBI’s Backchannel Investigation Conducted by Ohr

 

In a separate, but related matter, a slew of documents and emails obtained by congressional investigators also shows that the FBI failed to disclose to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) that it had a backchannel investigation with senior Obama Justice Department officials that continued to use and obtain information from Steele.

 

Steele was a central figure in the separate investigation being conducted by Ohr and Fusion GPS. According to the documents, Ohr and his wife were working closely with Steele and channeling information to the FBI.

 

The new onslaught of documents obtained by the oversight committees seems to show a pattern, considering the FBI also failed to disclose important information in its FISC warrant application to spy on short-term Trump campaign volunteer, Carter Page.

 

On Monday, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes revealed that Obama’s FBI failed to include “exculpatory evidence” in its FISA application against Page. If proven true, this violation has enormous implications, according to a congressional source with knowledge of the investigation.

“Ohr was basically allowing himself to be run as a source so the FBI could communicate with Steele even after they fired him,” said another congressional source who maintains that the exculpatory evidence should have been included in the application and the court should have been aware.

Why in the heck are all these Democrats not at the very least facing a jury trial for criminal acts. When a Dem tells you the FBI has fully investigated say, Crooked Hillary and exonerate her, they are either willingly delusional, blinded by stupid political devotion or outright lying! FAR MORE evidence of crimes from Hillary, Comey, Clapper, Brennan and let’s not forget various Dems directly linked to FORMER President Obama than to President Trump or ANYONE indicted or convicted by Mueller that had absolutely nothing to do with Russia colluding with Trump to win the 2016 election.

 

Flynn pled guilty to lying about something he didn’t know he lied about until the Mueller found enough of a discrepancy to claim lying to the FBI. Manafort is indicted for bank fraud LONG before Donald Trump even decided to run for President. Michael Cohen is being investigated not Russia collusion but for the method Cohen used to fund an NDA with Stormy Daniels/Donald Trump sex (AGAIN way before Trump decided to run for President):

 

Update: The Washington Post reports that Cohen “is under federal federal [sic] investigation for possible bank fraud, wire fraud and campaign finance violations,” citing three people with knowledge of the case. (FBI raids office, hotel room of Trump lawyer Michael Cohen; By Alayna Treene; AXIOS; 4/9/18)

 

I am frustrated and angry that the American legal system has become so politically corrupted that Dems get a complete pass for obvious crimes and Conservatives, Conservative supporters and Conservative Republicans get the book thrown at them merely for petty crimes that not even a local police force would use yet the FBI trapped them with petty finagling or zero evidence of a crime.

 

Justin Smith reminded me of this unequal justice that has impugned President to the tune of Treason. Justin correctly calls these Deep State Dems Amerikan Fascists.

Nothing Short of Treason

 

By Justin O. Smith

Any act that seeks to unseat a duly elected U.S. President and his administration, through illegal means, although it might not be intended to overthrow our republic, undermines our republic in the same manner of an attempted governmental overthrow, as “peaceful” as it may be. Since well before the election of 2016, the American people now know, there were a group of anti-Donald Trump statist progressive Obama bureaucratic holdovers working diligently and under Obama’s direction, to subvert President Trump’s campaign, and, then afterwards, his administration and his presidency, using sabotage and espionage tactics, because they were just so angry that he beat the criminal-minded and corrupt Hillary Clinton so handily. Their actions are nothing short of treason. [Bold Text Blog Editor’s]

 

On Wednesday April 18th, Sara Carter, journalist extraordinaire, explosively divulged that Representative Ron DeSantis (R-Florida) and ten other Congressmen sent a letter to U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions, U.S. Attorney John Huber and FBI Director Christopher Wray, which refers criminal charges against former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, former FBI Director James Comey, and former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe for their involvement in the trumped up investigations into Trump and known violations of federal law. Also named in this criminal referral were FBI Special Agent Peter Strzok and his lover FBI lawyer Lisa Page, who made their anti-Trump bias well known in emails now in the hands of Inspector General Michael Horowitz.

 

Just as culpable and involved in this mess are former CIA Director John Brennan and Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, who leaked classified information like a rusty radiator leaks water. One must wonder when they too, along with many other co-conspirators, will have criminal charges proffered against them.

 

It was James Clapper who orchestrated the leak, through FBI Director James Comey and his friend Columbia Professor Daniel Richman, that President Trump may have been compromised by the Russians. This is revealed through Comey’s own words in recently released memos. And according to the House Intelligence Committee, in early 2017, Clapper leaked the details of the high-level government briefings on the Steele Dossier to CNN and lied to Congress about it.

 

As the letter states: “It would appear that Director Comey leaked classified information when sharing these memos with professor Richman. Accordingly, we refer James Comey to DOJ for potential violation(s) of: 18 USC 641, 18 USC 793, and 18 USC 1924.” And all of this was done, by Comey’s own admission, to ensure the appointment of a Special Counsel in order to persistently harass President Trump, even though he was not guilty of any wrong doing or any Russian collusion.

 

Without going into great detail, it is sufficient to say that Loretta Lynch was referred for possibly prosecution for allegedly threatening with reprisal the former FBI informant who came forward regarding the corrupt and criminal dealings inside the Uranium One deal and Clinton’s “pay for play” scheme, through the Clinton Foundation, while Andrew McCabe is on the firing line for violating three different laws as he lied under oath repeatedly and numerous times to FBI and the Office of the Inspector General investigators.

 

The primary allegation against Hillary Clinton states that she disguised payments to Fusion GPS to obfuscate her involvement in manufacturing the false Steele Dossier, that would later be used to illegally acquire a FISA warrant to run surveillance on Donald Trump and his inner circle. The criminal referral notes that those payments potentially violate 52 USC 30121 and 52 USC 30101 requiring the mandatory disclosure of these payments to the Federal Election Commission. However, the lawmakers also made mention of the January 22nd Wall Street Journal [Blog Editor: Need subscription to read past 1st paragraph] article that detailed texts between Strzok and Page and suggesting the FBI “eliminated evidence that Mrs. Clinton compromised high-level communications”. But Clinton is guilty of so much more, from Uranium One to Benghazi.

Foreign nationals are not supposed to influence our elections, but one should recall that Hillary’s campaign and the DNC, under her control, funneled $12 million dollars to the law firm of Perkins Coie, which paid Fusion GPS, and in turn, Fusion GPS hired Steele. Christopher Steele, former British MI-6 agent, was the only foreign influence on the 2016 election.

 

Since the presentation of false and unverified information from the Steele Dossier was the source cited before the FISA Court to obtain warrants for the surveillance of President Trump and one of his advisors, Carter Page, this too raised significant concerns. DeSantis and the others reference House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes’ letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions this March, as they recommended that charges be brought against “all DOJ and FBI personnel responsible for signing the Carter Page warrant application … for possible violations of 18 USC 242 and 18 USC 1505 and 1515b”.

 

While the letter spoke of “dissimilar degrees of zealousness” in the investigations into Clinton and Trump campaign associates, it went on to say, “we want to be sure that the potential violations of law outlined below are vetted appropriately”. Is there really any question that these criminals broke numerous U.S legal codes coming and going, with impunity and no fear of prosecution, thinking themselves untouchable?

 

During the following press release, DeSantis stated: “The political elite are not immune from the rule of law, and those in positions of high authority should be treated the same as any other American. If former officials, including Hillary Clinton and James Comey, broke the law then they need to be held accountable. We ask that the Department of Justice move swiftly to ensure that violations of federal statutes by high officials are identified and prosecuted.”

 

Much of where the nation goes from here hinges on the May 8th report from Inspector General Michael Horowitz. Hopefully, he too will see the great need for quick and earnest prosecution of these criminals.

 

Furthermore, all of this perfectly illustrates that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s “investigation” is based on a lie. Now, although he has repeatedly and disingenuously stated that President Trump is not a target of the investigation, Mueller continues on by attacking any and all of the president’s closest aides and confidantes, dredging up several minor and unrelated “crimes”, as he attempts to force something to the surface that might implicate President Trump in a crime worthy of impeachment. It’s past time for this farce to come to a screeching halt, in the name of sanity and for our national security, as the President fries some bigger fish, like North Korea and Iran.

 

Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced last month he had assigned a federal prosecutor to investigate the broader issues in this mess, while rejecting the notion of appointing a second Special Counsel to investigate the investigators and to see just how far to the top this goes. The pressure must be kept on these criminals until we have found every last damn one of them and receive a full accounting of exactly who was involved, since it must be incomprehensible to any cogent and logical thinker [to believe] that Barack Obama himself didn’t have a hand in this.

 

There have been about thirty trials for treason in the United States since 1789. America witnessed Mildred Gillars, an American broadcaster, and Robert Best, a journalist, convicted of treason after working for the Nazis to push their propaganda during WWII. The last people to be tried and executed for treason were Ethel and Julius Rosenberg, who were convicted of passing U.S. atomic secrets to the Soviets in 1953. What these amerikan fascists, such as Clinton, Lynch, Comey and McCabe, have just done is infinitely worse than anything any other traitor to America has perpetrated across our history, and as such, it demands a harsh penalty. Perhaps America may soon see real swift and sure justice done once more, if the rule of law still exists and if our Republic is to be saved.

SARA CARTER: Deep State is “Terrified” of the Second Anti-Trump Dossier that’s Coming Out (VIDEO)


Clinton Criminal Cartel Begins to Unravel

 

The Deep State Dems are at this moment constructing more propaganda lies because a 2nd Dossier is about to be exposed by the GOP members of the House Intelligence Committee. It’s sad the Dems on the Committee hate Trump so much and/or are so committed to a Leftist transformation in America that they are willing to toss out the Constitution and operate a Deep State style program to garner support by lying/duping Americans with attacks on President Trump and lying accusations against the anti-Deep State GOP.

 

The well-informed Sara Carter on Fox and Friends Weekend spells it out.

SARA CARTER: Deep State is “Terrified” of the Second Anti-Trump Dossier that’s Coming Out (VIDEO)

 

By Jim Hoft

February 4, 2018

The Gateway Pundit

 

Investigative journalist Sara Carter went on FOX and Friends on Sunday morning to discuss the explosive FISA memo that was released on Friday.

 

What Will Ongoing Intel Probe Reveal

 

Sara Carter says Deep State is “terrified” of the second bogus dossier that is coming out.

 

Sara Carter: The second memo that the House Intelligence Committee is putting together. We’re still waiting for the Inspector General’s report that is going to be coming out. That’s going to be directed at Andrew McCabe, now former director Andrew McCabe, and others. And I think they’re terrified what’s going to come out here.

 

Here’s what we know. There was a second dossier that was put together by a person named Cody Shearer. He is a very controversial activist, a former reporter who worked with the Clintons in the past. And the FBI was also using this second dossier as part of what they were doing to back up the other dossier by Christopher Steele, an unverified dossier. And we believe Chistopher [sic] Steele was also sending information to the State Department in bits and snippets. But I think the most important thing here and one of the things they are going to be looking at very closely are the leaks. There were a number of leaks out unverified information by possibly senior members of the Obama administration.

Release FISA Memo to American Public


John R. Houk

© January 21, 2018

 

As of the moment I’m typing this, Schumer and Pelosi have been leading the Dems in a government shutdown in extortion for absolute amnesty for Illegal Aliens while giving ZERO that the Republican majority has electorally promised.

 

I see this as deflection for two things the Dems fear:

 

1. The Dem promised Armageddon over Trump tax-cuts NEVER came; indeed, a booming economy has arisen in the stock market and for middle class employees pay raises and/or bonuses have mushroomed to benefit family living.

 

2. The worst Dem fear is news that will undoubtedly affect the 2018 mid-term election to the benefit of the GOP. The basis of Dem fear is a 4-page mem exposing criminal corruption by FBI/DOJ Dem-favoring agents planning a fake evidence against President Trump.

In the first instance, even after lying Dem propaganda, the evidence economic prosperity is too huge for the MSM to cover-up from the public.

 

In the second instance, the lying Dem propaganda machine is being fired up to discredit the 4-page FISA Memo as either distorted or based on mitigating other evidence making to the Memo much too difficult for the stupid public (Dem thinking – NOT GOP!) to comprehend correctly.

 

ERGO, if you are stupid join the Dems in preventing the public from knowing how corrupt the American Left has made agencies created to keep harm from the public. IF you a part of the brilliant public of WE THE PEOPLE and desire a voice on how government is operated, then DEMAND your Congressman to release the FISA Memo and make the appropriate vote in November 2018.

 

How to locate Congressman of your District: Use this link – https://www.house.gov/representatives/find-your-representative – enter your Zip Code. (H/T Matt Forney)

 

Your Zip will take your Congressman providing snail mail address and phone number. If you look for the envelope symbol and click it you will be taken to an electronic method of contacting your Representative (either a contact form or email. Matt Forney provides a sample script for speaking to your Congressman or the Congressman’s phone gatekeeper.

Tick..Tock..Tick..Tock. America, are you ready for a great shock?? No. It’s not about the expected Schumer Shutdown. I speak of the FISA Memo that will in short time be released to the public who have a right to know. It’s called transparency. Those on the Intel Committee who have read are shocked by the abuse of power that they did see. No one in the TYRANT’S regime ever thought that this four page document would ever see the light of day. Apparently those who were part of this criminal conspiracy never heard that CRIME DOES NOT PAY.

 

In the criminal syndicate that is run by Bill and Dastardly Hillary they always seem to get away with any and all accountability. This time it will be a tad different. They and those in the FBI will not get away free. You can comprise your list of those who will be tainted. Never since the days of Watergate has there been a scandal like this. We are told that the scope of this is far and wide. Before long we will have a picture before us that is fully painted. It is said that assumptions should not be made for when you do it can lead to trouble. In the DEEP STATE everyone thought Hillary would surely win. That was the prevailing view in the environs that is the DC bubble.

 

In a Clinton Presidency everything would have been hidden. But she didn’t win and now a whole of disgusting characters can very well wind up in prison. How ironic it is to find that everyone who boasted about their being not a whiff of scandal in the previous regime will now see exposed one that shows the scope of criminality heretofore never seen. You and I are certainly not surprised to find the eight years of Trump’s predecessor was far from clean and pristine.

 

It is unfathomable to think that in the days ahead as more and more details are released that this story can be ignored. I am confident that justice will be done. A lack of it we, as a country, can ill afford. My only concern is this Attorney General That we have in place is so weak and hesitant. If he dares to be intimidated by the Democrats from pursuing these alleged criminals we would all find it utterly abhorrent. Can we trust his assistant AG. I certainly doubt he can be trusted. One more thing. If this Mueller Investigation is not ended post haste you will have an America in a fit of rage and thoroughly disgusted!!

On Saturday Rep. Dave Joyce announced Saturday that the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSIC) had launched the process to release the explosive FBI-FISA-Russia classified memo.

 

 

 

The 4 page memo contains evidence that the Obama administration used FISA warrants to spy on both the Trump campaign and transition team — charges Obama officials have long denied.

 

On Sunday morning investigative reporter Sara Carter told FOX and Friends Weekend that the memo could be released to the public this week.

 

Sara Carter on Fox News-FISA Memo

 

Sara Carter: The House Intelligence Committee is going to hold another vote. This vote will be made for the public… They’re sure it’s going to pass because Republicans are going to pass on the party line to make this available to the public. Then the memo will go to the president where the president will have five days to decide whether or not to declassify the memo. And what I’m being told from my sources he will declassify that memo for the public. They’re actually hoping the memo gets declassified very soon, the latest I’ve heard is the end of the month but the soonest could be anytime this week.

 

It ought to be an exciting week then!

[Posted by Tea Partier

Published on Jan 21, 2018]

 

[Blog Editor: The following is a transcript of the video that appears originally at Youtube post but is copy & pasted at the Gateway Pundit. I’m using the GP version because I like the emphasis.]

 

Partial transcript provided by Grabien:

 

CABRERA: “Let me ask you about the Russia investigation. I can’t have you here and not. Especially given how much we talked about it in the first year of the presidency. And now if you turn on any conservative media, they keep talking about this Nunez memo, the chairman of the house intelligence committee, that he’s put out there and many Republicans have taken a look at it and they want it made public. Can you tell us what exactly is it?”

 

SCHIFF: “It is essentially a set of talking points that the Republican Intel staff drafted. Based on the highly classified materials which most of the Republican members were forced to acknowledge. They’ve not even read. So they don’t know how distorted these talking points are. But as part of the narrative they want to push out. Interestingly enough, they’ve made common cause once again with Russian bots because Russian bots are pushing their narrative out there. It’s in a redux of the campaign. We have Assange and Wikileaks and Russian trolls and bots saying, you know, hash tag whatever the GOP narrative is. That ought to tell you a lot about what’s driving this. And that is –”

 

CABRERA: “Why not allow peel to look at it and let Americans make the decision for themselves about whether it’s useful information or not?”

 

SCHIFF: “Well, because the American people unfortunately don’t have the underlying materials and therefore they can’t see how distorted and misleading this document is.The Republicans are not saying make the underlying materials available to the public. They just want to make this spin available to the public. I think that spin, which is a attack on the FBI, is just designed to attack the FBI and Bob Mueller to circle the wagons for the White House. And that’s a terrible disservice to the people, hard working people at the bureau, but more than that, it’s a disservice to the country.”

 

In other words, Schiff believes Americans are too stupid to understand the memo.

 

As The Gateway Pundit‘s Cristina Laila reported, Schiff is in full blown panic mode as release of the memo looms. The Democrat lawmaker is fiercely working to block Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes from exposing “shocking” FISA abuses that took place during the 2016 presidential election.

Hannity & Carter Have Facts on Deep State Crimes


John R. Houk

© January 19, 2018

A few days ago, ex-President and probable treasonous criminal Barack Hussein Obama called fans of Fox News are people from a different planet. The thing that Obama and his cadres can’t stand is that Planet Fox is not intimidated by the Left and share verified info that exposes the nefarious Left.

 

Yes, I have had some issues with Fox News because sometimes they report a Left-Wing meme. You know, I have concluded those discrepancies I’ve disagreed with can probably be chalked up to Fox News attempting to offer the Left a voice in the name of balanced reporting.

 

I don’t know if you have noticed that when a Conservative appears on MSM news outlets the Leftists gang up by spewing propaganda attempting to shame the Conservative into silence. If that doesn’t work, then Left cuts out the mike not allowing the facts to disseminate the MSM listeners.

 

When a Leftie appears on Fox News (and it happens all the time), the program host usually allows the Leftist to spew his/her lies until they become too egregious in which case an interruption follows to straiten out the facts. When the Leftist will have nothing to do with the facts by trying to shout down the program host, so the facts don’t contradict the lies, then and only then is there a cut-the-mike situation on Fox News.

 

Sean Hannity has quickly risen to the top of my favorite Conservative hosts on Fox News. Very few Leftists have the courage to face Hannity because he is an in-your-face kind of Conservative.

 

Hannity has been incredible in reporting the corruption and nefarious acts going on to end President Trump’s Presidency. He has nearly been a lone wolf in his aggressive opinion based reporting that uses documentation and credible sources to form those hard-hitting opinions.

 

Now that documentation appears imminent to be released to the public demonstrating just how far the Dems are willing to go to use political lying in a political coup against President Trump, most Americans should begin to give Hannity some hero cred. That is unless the American cannot comprehend the truth due to becoming brainwashed by the Leftist MSM.

 

After the facts become public, you can measure if you’ve been brainwashed or not.

 

Here is some Fox News (on in the case I’m presenting – Fox Business News) and Hannity reporting on some of the documentation exposing a corrupt government in the FBI and DOJ. (Which I hope leads exposing corruption in Crooked Hillary’s State Department and Obama’s operation of the Executive Branch.)

The House Intel panel’s passage of New York Republican Rep. Peter King’s motion to release the FISA abuse memo to fellow House members has rocked Washington, D.C.

 

Lawmakers from Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) to Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) have called for the classified memo’s immediate release. According to Fox News contributor Sara Carter, the contents of the memo are so “explosive,” that it could end special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe once and for all.

 

Sara Carter: Comey, McCabe, Mueller & Rosenstein

 

Sara Carter reports:

 

A review of a classified document outlining what is described as extensive Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act abuse was made available to all House members Thursday and the revelations could lead to the removal of senior officials in the FBI and Department of Justice, several sources with knowledge of the document stated. These sources say the report is “explosive,” stating they would not be surprised if it leads to the end of Robert Mueller’s Special Counsel investigation into President Trump and his associates. […]

 

Congressional members are hopeful that the classified information will be declassified and released to the public.

 

“We probably will get this stuff released by the end of the month,” stated a congressional member, who asked not to be named.

 

But the government official, who viewed the document said “it will be tough for a lot of people to see this and especially the media, which has been attempting to deemphasize the dossier. It’s going to punch a hole in their collusion narrative.”

 

On Thursday, the House Intelligence Committee quietly voted to make available to fellow House members “a memo documenting abuse of the FISA program,” reports Fox News’ Chad Pergram. Rep Lee Zeldin (R-NY) is demanding the secret memo be released immediately.

 

 

 

“Just read the classified doc @HPSCI re FISA abuse. I’m calling for its immediate public release w/relevant sourced material. The public must have access ASAP! #Transparency.”

 

 

 

“Releasing this classified info doesn’t compromise good sources & methods. It reveals the feds’ reliance on bad sources & methods,” added Zeldin.

 

As The Gateway Pundit‘s Jim Hoft reported, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) joined Liz Claman on FOX Business Network to discuss the FISA abuse report.

 

Rep. Gaetz told Claman:

 

“The allegations contained in this important intelligence document go to the very foundations of our democracy and they require an immediate release to the public in my opinion.”

 

 

 

Carter’s story comes amid reports former White House Strategist Steve Bannon has reached a deal to meet with Mueller, rather than appear before a grand jury.

Obama ROE Doomed Extortion 17

“Rules of Engagement” (ROE) is the military description of what kind of lethal force (if any) is allowed to fight armed enemies of America. The U.S. military personnel began to complain of the Bush Administration ROE a bit. However, under President Obama’s watch the ROE was so restrictive it cost the lives of U.S. military personnel.

 

Obama was more concerned about protecting Muslim civilians that probably supported al Qaeda and Taliban terrorists more than protecting Americans. The same was true in Iraq but the enemy had many names with the same goal. Kill Americans that freed them from the brutality that was Saddam Hussein. The Iraq enemy were primarily Sunni terrorists with a purist Islamic theopolitical ideal exampled by their pseudo-prophet Muhammad.

 

It is coming out from a retired “Air Force officer” has become a whistleblower about how 38 Americans including 17 elite Navy SEALS were shot down and died in 2011 primarily due Obama’s ROE.

Whistleblower: Pentagon Covered Up Real Story on ‘Extortion 17’ Navy SEAL Helicopter Crash

 

 

Behold: The faces of those betrayed by the previous administration!

Beyond travesty. These outstanding warriors were victims of treachery! Period!

 
Many believed from the beginning that they were set up. The truth always comes to light eventually. The previous administration must pay for its out right treasonous sacrifice of our servicemen for whatever nefarious agenda they had in mind.

On August 6, 2011, 30 US service members were killed when a CH-47 Chinook helicopter they were being transported in crashed in Wardak province, Afghanistan. It was the deadliest single loss for U.S. forces in the decade-long war in Afghanistan. 17 members of the elite Navy SEALs were killed in the crash.

 
Circa News had an exclusive interview with retired Air Force officer, Joni Marquez who has recently come forward to give her eyewitness account of one of the most deadly attacks on Navy SEALs in history.

 
What really happened that night in Afghanistan where 17 Navy SEALs and 14 other U.S. Military personnel including a Military working dog were killed in a Chinook helicopter? The incredibly brave, Joni Marquez gives us a lot more insight to that tragic night.

 
Via Circa News:

 

A decorated retired Air Force officer who witnessed one of the most deadly attacks on Navy SEALs in U.S. history is breaking her silence, saying the government covered up evidence detailing that the 2011 downing of a Chinook helicopter gunship that killed 38 fighters in Afghanistan could have been prevented had it not been for restrictions to the military’s rules of engagement that were changed under the Obama administration.

 

Circa News describes the Mission:

 

August 6, 2011: Retired Air Force Capt. Joni Marquez and her crew were working the dark morning hours aboard an AC-130 gunship after being summoned to a mission she describes “as almost like a 9-1-1 type of a situation.”


The gunship was ordered to fly close-in air support above Afghanistan’s dangerous Tangi Valley, in Wardak Province, assisting troops with the Army’s 75th Ranger Regiment who were being fired on by eight heavily armed Taliban insurgents.


The Rangers had called in for assault helicopters to engage the enemy hiding among the rocky valley. The air weapons team fired on the Taliban fighters, but not all of the insurgents were killed as originally believed.

 

Marquez begged for permission to engage several times, yet was denied

 

“We had seen two of them (insurgents) moving, crawling away from the area, as to not really make a whole lot of scene,” she recalled.


Monitoring the scene from above, she relayed the scene to the ground force commander. “You have two enemy forces that are still alive,” she said. “Permission to engage.”


They were denied.


Marquez told Circa the ground commander’s decision to not allow her crew to engage the two enemy fighters sealed the fate of those involved in Extortion 17.

 

Watch the full interview with Sara Carter of Circa News and Joni Marquez here.


The rules of engagement set by the Obama administration were specifically designed to protect Muslims and put our brave men and women serving our country in danger.


A retired Special Operation Combat Vet told TGP reporter Cristina Laila that this crash was the greatest single loss of life ever suffered by the Special Operations community in the 24 year history of the U.S. Special Operations Command. He also said, “it is tactically unsound to put that many Special Operators in one bird (helicopter)”.


Why was this Chinook helicopter hovering for 13 minutes making our men sitting ducks?
