Robert Barnes of Law and Crime asks the question we all wonder. When is the DNC/GPS indictment coming down?

He does a good job arguing both sides.  First, if one is illegal, then the other is far more easily proved as illegal.  The DNC did use a cutout to fund a company that communicated with a foreigner (Steele) to gather disinformation from foreign enemies (the Russians) in order to attack a legal candidate (Trump) in a lawful presidential election.

First, if Mueller’s theory is correct, three things make Steele a criminal: first, he is a foreign citizen; second, he tried to influence an election, which he received payments to do (including from the FBI itself); and third, he neither registered as a foreign agent nor listed his receipts and expenditures to the Federal Election Commission. Also, according to the FBI, along the way, Steele lied…a lot, while the dossier he disseminated contained its own lies based on bought-and-paid for smears from foreign sources reliant on rumors and innuendo.

Second, if Mueller’s theory is correct, three things make FusionGPS a criminal co-conspirator: it knew Steele was a foreign citizen; it knew, and paid, Steele to influence an election; and it knew, and facilitated, Steele neither registering as a foreign agent nor reporting his funding from the Democratic National Committee and the Clinton campaign to the Federal Election Commission.

Third, if Mueller’s theory is correct, then three things make PerkinsCoie a potential target: it knew Steele was a foreign citizen; it knew, and paid, Steele to influence an election; and it knew, and facilitated, Steele neither registering as a foreign agent nor reporting his funding from the Democratic National Committee and the Clinton campaign to the Federal Election Commission, by disguising its receipt of payments from the Clinton campaign as a “legal expense.”

Fourth, if Mueller’s theory is correct, then three things make the DNC a potential target: it knew Steele was a foreign citizen; it knew, and paid, Steele to influence an election; and it knew, and facilitated, Steele neither registering as a foreign agent nor reporting his funding from the Democratic National Committee and the Clinton campaign to the Federal Election Commission, by disguising its payments to Steele as laundered legal expenses to a law firm.

Fifth, if Mueller’s theory is correct, three things make the Clinton Campaign a potential target: it knew Steele was a foreign citizen; it knew, and paid, Steele to influence an election; and it knew, and facilitated, Steele neither registering as a foreign agent nor reporting his funding from the Clinton campaign to the Federal Election Commission, by disguising its funding of payments to Steele laundered through a law firm as a “legal expense.”

Don’t expect such an indictment. Mueller chose his targets because he knows they will never appear in court, never contest the charges, and cannot be arrested or extradited as Russian citizens. Mueller’s unprecedented prosecution raises three novel arguments: first, that speaking out about American politics requires a foreign citizen to register under the Foreign Agents Registration Act; second, that speaking out about American politics requires a foreign citizen list their source and expenditure of funding to the Federal Election Commission; and third, that mistakes on visa applications constitute “fraud” on the State Department. All appear to borrow from the now-discredited “honest services” theories Mueller’s team previously used in corporate and bribery cases, cases the Supreme Court overturned for their unconstitutional vagueness. The indictment raises serious issues under the free speech clause of the First Amendment and due process rights under the Fifth Amendment.

So either Mueller is bluffing, and that hurts his reputation. Or we are going to see a wholesale change in how foreigners influence American elections.

I think Barnes didn’t go far enough.  As we speak, John McCain has a foundation. John McCain is a sitting Senator.  The Saudis donated millions to John McCain’s foundation.  John McCain never met a policy he didn’t like that helped the Saudis out.  Now, I can count. 1+1+1+1= indictments. I’m sure if we started digging, we’d find dozens of similar examples. I wonder if John Kerry has a foundation. Or Biden.  Surely Obama, right?

Mueller says the Russians did it. CNN still thinks it’s Trump’s fault.

“Missed it by that much!”


At some point we are going to have to prescribe pills for the crew over at CNN and the general media population. They are as nuts as anyone we’ve see in a while and Mueller didn’t help.

A federal grand jury on Friday indicted 13 Russians and three Russian companies for allegedly interfering in the 2016 presidential election, in a case brought by Special Counsel Robert Mueller that detailed a sophisticated plot to wage “information warfare” against the U.S.

The Russian nationals are accused of setting a “strategic goal to sow discord in the U.S. political system, including the 2016 presidential election.”

The indictment – the first filed against Russian nationals as part of Mueller’s probe – effectively returns focus to the meddling activities out of Russia in the run-up to the 2016 election, following a string of charges relating to the actions of Trump associates.

Further, the DOJ made clear that the indictment does not allege that any of the interference changed the outcome of the presidential race.

“There is no allegation in this indictment that any American was a knowing participant in this illegal activity. There is no allegation in the indictment that the charged conduct altered the outcome of the 2016 election,” Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who oversees the special counsel probe, said at a Friday press conference.

President Trump reacted to the indictments by seizing on Rosenstein’s comment that the election results were not impacted by the Russians’ activity.

“Russia started their anti-US campaign in 2014, long before I announced that I would run for President,” Trump tweeted. “The results of the election were not impacted. The Trump campaign did nothing wrong – no collusion!”

The 37-page indictment, signed by Mueller, said the actions detailed by prosecutors date back to 2014.

The defendants are accused of spreading derogatory information about Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, denigrating Republican candidates Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio — and ultimately supporting Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders and then-Republican candidate Donald Trump.

But when Trump was elected, the same crew pivoted and went after him using elements like the BLM movement in America.

So what was the goal? To sow dissension between the parties and the people. Did it work?  With the help of the Democrats and the media- yes it did.

Yet, the real goal here – by elements with our OWN government – was to create an investigation that would politically tie up Trump, if not give Congress grounds for his impeachment and or flip Congress to the Democrats.

If Mueller didn’t know that he’s an idiot.  Why? Because the whole “Russians did it” was a meme created by the DNC and pushed out further after Hillary lost as an excuse as to why she lost. How do we know that?  People in the meeting John Podesta held with the campaign staff heard the plan.…knowledge..!  Not that a person would learn that listening to CNN.

We also know now that Strzok and Page were talking about an “insurance plan” in the office of Andrew McCabe.  This is that plan.  What went wrong was the IG investigation dug into the bad acts by the Obama DOJ/FBI  and caught up with them before they could get to Trump.  Sally Yates, yes that Yates, did her best to cover up the effort by denying the IG access to the division where the “small group” operated.  So, yes, she knew too.

So why is Mueller, or more likely, Atty Weinstein, going after Manafort and Flynn?  As we talked about earlier, it’s about both of them bucking the system.  Along with Carter Page, they were a threat to get Trump to rethink Russian relationships and maybe, just maybe, not treat Russia as a threat but as a competitor. That would screw up NATO, military contractors, the EU and all the bureaucrats who planned to make a career wandering around the bureaucracy doing nothing in particular and taking your money while doing it. Evelyn Farkas is a perfect example of this permanent administrative critter.

However, here’s the problem with what Mueller did. One- he has no right.  Andy McCarthy and a dozen other legal experts still cannot explain why Mueller was appointed. There is no crime, so no special prosecutor.  Two- Comey and the deep state maneuvered Mueller into place and soon he and Weinstein set out to remove from Trump’s sphere any voices that might tell him something different than say McMasters and McCain might believe.  That is not their right.  Three- the duo used compromised evidence and corrupt investigators to “find” crimes against Flynn and maybe Manafort.  Manafort is not a good guy and I don’t care about him. Flynn served his nation for decades. No one says he was anything but a stellar officer.  Yet suddenly, when involved with the Trump campaign and after he bucked the Obama’s foreign policy positions in the Middle East, he’s a bad guy and leaks upon leaks (from Strzok I’m sure) demonized him.  By the way, it turned out Flynn was right and Obama was wrong and Obama (and his buddies) didn’t like that one bit.

All that will come out in the wash.  Hopefully.  My buddy thinks Strzok and Page and Ohr are cooperating.  He has seen this type of investigation before and said usually when the targets are sat down, not fired or suspended, and no information is coming out on them, it means they are cooperating.

He put it this way, and I will paraphrase here;  What happens is the target is approached by the IG.  The target is told basically to shut up, sit down and get a lawyer.  Then the IG shows the lawyer just how screwed his client is.  At that point, the IG hands the lawyer a letter of cooperation and says to the target if you cooperate you will be given a break.  However, you will not talk to anyone, not leak anything, and just sit there. When we need more information we will call you and you will respond, then you will go back and sit there. If you violate this agreement you will face the full penalty for your crimes.

He thinks that is why we are not hearing from about five defendants- Ohr and his wife, Strzok, Page and Priestap. There may be others, but those five stand out. Carlin left right after all this started. Others have fled since. The one who lost his mind was McCabe after a meeting with Wray.  So, he’s in trouble and he knows it.

I would think if there is a rule of law that encompasses federal appointees then there will be others that are in trouble. Maybe Yates, Comey, Blumenthal, Simpson, Steele and Shearer, and a few in the State Department.

In any event, CNN should be put on suicide watch. Sure, they’ll spin it, but it’s over.  Trump should not meet with Mueller. Mueller, if he’s smart will wind this down. And if he’s a real straight shooter spin up the HRC/DNC/Russian real collusion investigation.

Don’t hold your breath. He looks like a guy heading for an exit, with his reputation and law license intact.

As the downward spiral of bad acts by the federal government against Trump continue…Spies got scammed?

This is crazy times. I was not a big fan of Trump at first and he still drives me nuts. But he is an AMERICAN citizen who was legally elected by us to the Presidency. The fact that the Obama government willingly used its agencies to attack the opposition party and Americans in general. We know that, you know that, CNN knows that but denies it.

Yet with Trump, Obama and Hillary used our intelligence agencies to illegally spy on him and his campaign, create and disseminate false stories and leak all of that to the press as a way to cripple him so that she could win.  The “why’s” are many. Obama wanted his legacy to continue. The permanent bureaucracy didn’t want Trump to cut them down to size. The people directly involved wanted to be “rewarded” by a grateful Hillary by receiving cash and promotions.  And of course Hillary felt it was her right.  (And that my friends is why we dodged a huge bullet when she lost.  She’s dictator crazy.)

None of what has been written above is a lie. The corruption is that deep and wide.

Now we find out our spies were sent, with a 100k to trade for  information about Trump, to Europe and were ripped off.  Of course they are spinning it like they had no choice. THEY SAY (and I capitalize that because who knows who is telling the truth) the Russian also offered info on the Russian hacking tools, but we can assume now, after seeing the IRS/NSA/FBI/DOJ/ATF weaponized by Obama, that the spies were also sent there primarily to get dirt on Trump.  Hillary is a cancer and she kills anything that get near her.

US intelligence paid $100,000 to a shady Russian operative who pocketed the dough and took off without coming through with a promised goldmine of espionage assets – including alleged dirt on President Trump, according to a sensational report on Friday.

The Russian last year got 10 percent of a $1 million deal that was supposed to include stolen National Security Agency tools used for hacking and purported images of Trump consorting with hookers in Moscow, US and European intelligence sourcestold the New York Times.

But the Russian never came through with any spy-world nuggets.

The alleged compromising images of Trump from 2013 turned out to be a 15-second video clip of a man in a hotel room speaking to two women, sources told the paper. The video had no sound or any evidence the man in footage was Trump.

With 20/20 hindsight, US intelligence was driven by desperation to recover the hacking tools which have been used to wreak havoc on millions of computers across the world, one veteran spy said.

“That’s one of the bedeviling things about counterintelligence and the wilderness that it is – nobody wants to be caught in a position of saying we wrote that off and then five years later, saying, `Holy cow, it was actually a real guy,’ ” said Steven Hall, the former chief of Russian operations for the CIA.

And looking back, it should have been obvious that the Russian never had any ties to sensitive information.

He’d been busted for money laundering and his only business ties were to a nearly bankrupt company that sold grills to streetside sausage peddlers, according to British incorporation papers cited by the Times.

The lengths US intelligence went to cultivate the ultimately bad source were both laughable and straight out of paperback spy novels.

The US worked through an American businessman in Germany, to maintain deniability, and set up meetings in five-star Berlin hotels and tracked the Russian’s travels throughout Europe – including visits to his mistress in Vienna.

And even with those high-end tactics, the NSA also communicated with the Russian through its official Twitter account.

At some point the dam will break, CNN will be drowning in the deluge of truth and they will still refuse to admit they are all wet. Same with the rest of these leftist outlets.

But Trump just hit 50% despite the constant and overwhelming lies.  When the truth gets out on this, he will be at 70% and some very bad people are going to be in jail. As Victor Davis Hanson puts it, this is far worse than Watergate.

How does FISA-gate compare to Watergate and Iran-Contra?

Once again, an administration is being accused of politicizing government agencies to further agendas, this time apparently to gain an advantage for Hillary Clinton in the run-up to an election.

There is also the same sort of government resistance to releasing documents under the pretext of “national security.”

There is a similar pattern of slandering congressional investigators and whistleblowers as disloyal and even treasonous.

There is the rationale that just as the Watergate break-in was a two-bit affair, Carter Page was a nobody.

But there is one huge (and ironic) difference. In the current FISA-gate scandal, most of the media and liberal civil libertarians are now opposing the disclosure of public documents. They are siding with those in the government who disingenuously sought surveillance to facilitate the efforts of a political campaign.

This time around, the press is not after a hated Nixon administration. Civil libertarians are not demanding accountability from a conservative Reagan team. Instead, the roles are reversed.

Barack Obama was a progressive constitutional lawyer who expressed distrust of the secretive “Deep State.” Yet his administration weaponized the IRS and surveilled Associated Press communications and a Fox News journalist for reporting unfavorable news based on supposed leaks.

Mr. Obama did not fit the past stereotypes of right-wing authoritarians subverting the Department of Justice and its agencies. Perhaps that is why there was little pushback against his administration’s efforts to assist the campaign of his likely replacement, fellow Democrat Hillary Clinton.

Progressives are not supposed to destroy requested emails, “acid wash” hard drives, spread unverified and paid-for opposition research among government agencies, or use the DOJ and FBI to obtain warrants to snoop on the communications of American citizens.

FISA-gate may become a more worrisome scandal than either Watergate or Iran-Contra. Why? Because our defense against government wrongdoing — the press — is defending such actions, not uncovering them. Liberal and progressive voices are excusing, not airing, the excesses of the DOJ and FBI.

Apparently, weaponizing government agencies to stop a detested Donald Trump by any means necessary is not really considered a crime.

Amazing we got here so fast. But as the Soviets said, they would destroy us without firing a shot, by destroying us from within.

Thanks Barack and Hillary and the rest of you progressives. You are doing the dirty work.

Now that we know the Clintons did it, the new angle from the Dems is “We had to, it was Patriotic!”

You can’t make it up.  We have now discovered the nexus of the “Trump has been compromised by the Russians” was actually created by an old hack job of a Clinton insider named Cody Shearer.  In addition, we are now seeing Sydney Blumenthal mixed up in this.  If you are going “WTF?!” you are not alone.  It seems the whole dossier, or part of it, was pushed through the Shearer by either Clinton or even the “Russians” to Sydney who then gave it  to some idiot, who is also a long time Clinton ally, in the State Department, who felt it is “duty” to give it to Victoria Nuland, another Clinton ally, who then shipped it over to John Kerry.

Former Obama State Department official Jonathan Winer, in an attempt to come clean and shape the narrative before being exposed, confirmed that he passed on a dossier from Clinton operatives to the author of the infamous Trump dossier. 

In an op-ed in the Washington Post on Thursday titled “Devin Nunes is investigating me. Here’s the truth,” Winer publicly confirmed reports that he had passed on a report he received from Clinton operatives to dossier author Christopher Steele in the fall of 2016, right before the election.

He also confirmed that those Clinton operatives were aware of the dossier effort — making Hillary Clinton’s denials of knowing about the dossier even less credible than they were already.

Winer purported to tell “the real story” in his piece, in which he claimed his actions were taken because he was “so alarmed” by Russia’s role in the 2016 election.

Winer admitted to becoming friends with Steele in 2009, after he had left the State Department and started a consulting business. After he rejoined the State Department in 2013, Steele, who was already retired from British intelligence, would send him reports he would pass on to then-senior State Department official Victoria Nuland.

Winer admitted that in summer 2016, Steele told him he had learned of “disturbing information” regarding possible ties between Donald Trump, his campaign, and senior Russian officials. He then met with Steele in Washington in September 2016, and was allowed to review — but not take a copy — of the Steele dossier in order to “alert the State Department.”

He prepared a two-page summary and shared it with Nuland, who told him to share it with Secretary of State John Kerry. Winer notably did not say what Kerry did with the information, or who else he might have shared it with.

Around that same time, Winer happened to speak with “old friend” and long-time Clinton operative Sidney Blumenthal, whom he met 30 years ago. He and Blumenthal “discussed Steele’s reports” — an admission that Blumenthal, a close Clinton friend, knew about the Steele dossier as early as September 2016 (even though Clinton herself denied knowing about it until January 2017).

Winer said during that meeting Blumenthal gave him notes from a “journalist” he “did not know,” Cody Shearer, that corroborated the salacious allegation in Steele’s dossier that Trump had hired prostitutes to urinate on a bed. “What struck me was how some of the material echoed Steele’s but appeared to involve different sources,” Winer wrote.

However, if Winer had done a quick Google search on Shearer, he would have found several in-depth reports, including a 2015 ProPublica report, that clearly stated that Shearer was a longtime Clinton friend. In addition, it is odd that Winer, who also served under Bill Clinton, did not know Shearer’s brother had served as an ambassador under President Clinton, and Shearer’s sister was married to former Clinton official Strobe Talbott.

Winer then passed Shearer’s “dossier” to Steele, “to ask for his professional reaction,” he wrote. Steele said it was potentially “collateral” information, and kept the Shearer dossier.

Winer said he never mentioned Shearer’s dossier to anyone, and did not expect them to be shared with anyone in the government. He said he learned that Steele did share it with the FBI “after the FBI asked him” to provide everything he had on Trump.

According to Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson, the FBI contacted Steele in September, and met with him in October, a month before the election. According to a Wall Street Journal report, FBI agent Peter Strzok was, in August, trying to move aggressively to investigate Trump as the election approached.

It has been revealed through text messages between him and his lover, FBI lawyer Lisa Page, that they were both vehemently anti-Trump and against him becoming president.

Winer claimed innocence in his op-ed, arguing he was so “alarmed” by Russia’s role in the 2016 election that he passed on Steele’s information to Kerry, and Shearer’s memo to Steele. He also made a plea for Americans to turn their attention away from the FBI and his role in the investigation and back to “Russian interference” and whether Trump colluded.

“I am in no position to judge the accuracy of the information generated by Steele or Shearer. But I was alarmed at Russia’s role in the 2016 election, and so were U.S. intelligence and law enforcement officials,” he wrote.

“I believe all Americans should be alarmed — and united in the search for the truth about Russian interference in our democracy, and whether Trump and his campaign had any part in it,” he added.

Winer’s confession comes after Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) published a memo earlier this week recommending a criminal referral for Steele.

Now, one would wonder why the ex Clinton State department is handling Russian intel?  So would anyone with half a brain.   Occam’s razor would make the connection that Hillary Clinton’s campaign was intentionally sending false information about Trump through her contacts in order to create the impression that the “Russians did it” based on the theory they developed after the DNC hack.

In truth, the ONLY people colluding with the Russians are Hillary’s people. And if in fact the Russians are involved (and they deny it), and their goal is to get one political side to attack the other- they found a willing participant in the Democrat party.

On the Tucker Carlson show last night some guy who was in Hillary’s leadership circle now claims that yes, maybe the information was bad BUT it was their civic duty, the PATRIOTIC duty to report it and make sure the FBI did something with it on the outside chance that Trump was compromised by the Russians.

I know, George Orwell’s 1984 in full swing here. Because the truth is the ONLY campaign and politician being influenced by the Russians was Hillary.  How much? Read the article about Mr. Campbell’s work as a UC for the FBI during the Uranium One scandal.  The Russians boasted they had bribed Hillary through her Foundation.

An FBI informant involved in the controversial Uranium One deal has told congressional committees that Moscow paid millions to a U.S. lobbying firm in a bid to influence then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton by helping former President Bill Clinton’s charities during the Obama administration.

The Hill first reported late Wednesday that informant Douglas Campbell gave a 10-page statement to the Senate Judiciary Committee, House Intelligence Committee and House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, and was interviewed for several hours behind closed doors by committee staff.

In the statement, obtained by Fox News, Campbell said Russian executives told him that Moscow was hiring APCO Worldwide in an effort to influence the Obama administration and Hillary Clinton.

Campbell said Russian nuclear officials “told me at various times that they expected APCO to apply a portion of the $3 million annual lobbying fee it was receiving from the Russians to provide in-kind support for the Clinton’s Global Initiative.”

“The contract called for four payments of $750,000 over twelve months,” Campbell said in the statement. “APCO was expected to give assistance free of charge to the Clinton Global Initiative as part of their effort to create a favorable environment to ensure the Obama administration made affirmative decisions on everything from Uranium One to the US-Russia Civilian Nuclear Cooperation agreement.”

Campbell said the Russians were convinced by bribing Hillary she would help the Uranium One deal go through. Now if Mueller was an honest broker who is tasked with finding out if the Russians influenced the Presidential election he would shut down the two years of nothingburger that is the Trump investigation and pivot the HUGELY verified improper actions of Steele, Shearer, Blumenthal, Hillary, Nuland, Simpson et al.  Now of course he would have to leave because he was the frigging FBI DIRECTOR DURING THE URANIUM ONE SCANDAL AND LOOKED THE OTHER WAY!!!! Plus his current crew of investigators are all Hillary lovers, so no one would believe they would be honest brokers.

Tucker’s piece with the Clinton lackey is classic spin. Take the time. He says they had to do it because it was their patriotic duty.  But anyone saying Hillary was compromised- and bringing evidence of such- is a traitor.

You can’t make it up.

If none of this is now making sense and you are still puzzled. Chuck Ross may do a better job. But in essence the Obama administration worked with the Hillary campaign to create and disseminate false information in order to give his FBI/DOJ/NSA political appointees, in a “small group” unit, an excuse they all willingly accepted to spy on the Trump campaign and leak fake damaging information about that effort in order to make sure Hillary won. And in doing so, they broke dozens of federal laws.

And Mueller was hired by Rosenstein (who was in the middle of this criminal conspiracy) at the behest of Comey (who is now believed to be neck deep in the same criminal conspiracy) to investigate Trump for being part of a Russian effort to undermine the election.

At least four separate coincidences have emerged as the public learns more information about the unverified Steele dossier and how it was crafted.

The origin story of the 35-page document was pretty simple at the outset. Fusion GPS, which was investigating then-presidential candidate Donald Trump, hired former British spy Christopher Steele to write the dossier.

But as more details about the dossier trickle out into the public forum, connections have surfaced that raise questions about how information made its way into the salacious document.

Here are the four most significant “coincidences.

Trump Tower

The first coincidence to emerge from the dossier involved the June 9, 2016, meeting held at Trump Tower between Donald Trump Jr., Paul Manafort, Jared Kushner and a group of Russians.

Two of the Russians in the meeting — Natalia Veselnitskaya and Rinat Akhmetshin — happened to be working at the time of that meeting with Glenn Simpson, the founder of the opposition research firm that commissioned the dossier. (RELATED: Revelations From Glenn Simpson’s House Intelligence Committee Interview)

Simpson, Veselnitskaya and Akhmetshin were working on behalf of a Russian businessman on a lobbying campaign to undermine a U.S. sanctions law called the Magnitsky Act.

Simpson met before and after the meeting with Veselnitskaya and Akhmetshin but says he was not aware of the Trump Tower meeting until it was reported in July. He has also denied telling the two Russian operatives about his work on the Steele dossier.

Trump Jr. accepted the meeting after an acquaintance offered to provide him with dirt on former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. A Russian government attorney at the behest of Russia’s prosecutor general would provide the information, according to the acquaintance.

The offer matches up loosely with some of the allegations in the dossier, including that the Kremlin provided dirt on Trump’s political opponents.

Trump Jr. and others in the meeting say that it went nowhere and no meaningful information was exchanged. They also say that there was no follow up to the meeting, which lasted around 20 minutes.

Simpson himself appeared to acknowledge the odd overlap between his work on the two Russia-related projects — the dossier and the work with Veselnitskaya and Akhmetshin.

“I mean, thank God I didn’t know anything about the Trump Tower meeting, or I would really have some explaining to do,” he told the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence during a closed-door interview in November.

The Ohrs

Before and after the election, Department of Justice official Bruce Ohr was in contact with Steele, a former MI6 agent. And weeks after Trump’s win, Ohr met with Simpson to discuss his work on Trump.

That revelation, which was publicized in December, is strange enough. But Ohr had another connection to the dossier project. His wife, a Russia expert named Nellie, worked as a researcher for Fusion GPS on its Trump investigation.(RELATED: Fusion GPS Could Have Been Buying Access To DOJ)

A House Intelligence Committee memo released Feb. 2, says that Bruce Ohr took his wife’s Fusion GPS materials to the FBI. Ohr was also interviewed by the FBI in November and December 2016.

Little is known about Nellie Ohr’s work for Fusion GPS, but Simpson conspicuously left her out of his House Intelligence Committee testimony in November.

When asked how he knew Bruce Ohr, Simpson said he met him through Steele. When asked if Fusion GPS employed any Russian speakers, Simpson said the firm did not. That despite Nellie Ohr being fluent in Russian. She has also worked for a CIA program that did open source research.

‘Vicious Sid,’ ‘Mr. Fixer’ and the Department of State

The newest coincidence to emerge out of the dossier quagmire centers around Sidney Blumenthal and Cody Shearer, two quintessential Clinton insiders.

Known as “Vicious Sid” and “Mr. Fixer,” respectively, the two friends passed salacious allegations about Trump to a State Department official named Jonathan Winer.

Winer, who is friends with Blumenthal, in turn, gave the information to Steele.

Steele provided the information to the FBI in October 2016, according to a recent report by The Guardian.

The House Intelligence Committee and Senate Committee on the Judiciary are looking into the State Department’s involvement in that chain of events. (RELATED: Clinton ‘Hatchet Man’ Shopped Dirt Earlier Than Previously Known)

Shearer’s information closely matched Steele’s steamiest allegation about Trump — that the FSB, Russia’s spy agency, had video footage of Trump engaged with prostitutes in a Moscow hotel room. The material was being used to blackmail Trump, according to Steele.

Two interpretations of similar pieces of information have emerged. Dossier true-believers argue that Shearer’s information helps corroborate Steele’s dossier.

The other side argues that Shearer and Blumenthal’s work as Clinton dirty tricks artists raises credibility concerns for Steele.

Dick Morris, a former Bill Clinton aide who knows Blumenthal and Shearer, suggested on Wednesday that the Clintons may have planted the allegations about Trump. He argued that Steele was used to “launder” information because of Blumenthal and Shearer’s poor reputation in Washington, D.C.

There is no proof yet that the Shearer/Blumenthal information was also included in Steele’s dossier. The Guardian reported that Steele did tell the FBI that he had not verified the information that originated with Shearer.

The Papadopoulos Connection

The young Trump campaign adviser who pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about his contacts with Russians also has a possible link to the dossier.

George Papadopoulos, an energy consultant from Chicago, was in contact with Sergei Millian, a Belarusian-American businessman who is alleged to be a source of some of the most salacious claims in the dossier. (RELATED: George Papadopoulos’s Fascinating Link To The Dossier)

The Wall Street Journal, ABC News and The Washington Post have reported that Millian is “Source D” and “Source E” in the dossier.

It has emerged in recent months that Millian and Papadopoulos were in contact during the 2016 presidential campaign.

That connection raises the possibility — still far from verified — that Papadopoulos shared information with Millian that somehow ended up in the dossier.

The connection does not speak to whether the information would be true or false, but both Papadopoulos and Millian have histories of embellishment. Papadopoulos has exaggerated his resume, including a stint as a fellow at the United Nations. Millian has been accused of embellishing his business ties, including to the Trump real estate empire.

Papadopoulos joined the campaign in March 2016. Shortly after, he made the acquaintance of a London-based professor named Joseph Mifsud. In April 2016, during a meeting in London, Mifsud told Papadopoulos that he had learned that the Russian government obtained documents stolen from the Clinton campaign.

Papadopoulos, who pleaded guilty in October to lying to the FBI about his contacts with Mifsud, relayed this information the next month during a drunken conversation with Alexander Downer, the Australian ambassador to the U.K.

Downer did not do anything with the information until after Wikileaks began releasing hacked DNC emails two months later. Downer’s bosses informed the FBI about the Papadopoulos encounter, and the bureau opened up its counterintelligence investigation into Russian interference in the election.

The questions that remain about Papadopoulos are whether he told anyone in the Trump campaign about the emails and, if so, whether the campaign took action.

Now by compartmentalizing all of this and if everybody keeps their mouth shut, the hope is no SINGLE act will be criminal and they play it off as coincidence and bad politics.  Yet, if one person flips and says we all knew what we are doing, it rolls the whole crew up.

As I said, you simply cannot make this up.  Somebody has to go to jail.

Joe knows. And he says they are in trouble. FBI caught lying on 302s and FISA.

Joe knows! It’s a crime and somebody has to go to jail.

I saw this interview. Joe diGenova is a veteran of inside politics and inside DC experience. He is also a good lawyer who’s wife is representing Mr. Campbell, who was an FBI informant during a HUGE Russian scandal dealing with Uranium One.  Simply put Russia was trying to gain an edge in the uranium energy market (Russia wants to be an international energy player).  Russia decided one way was to bribe people and politicians for access and favors.  Two of those politicians were Hillary Clinton and her husband- former President, Bill Clinton.  The Russians used the Clinton Foundation as a primary go between by “donating” millions of dollars to the Foundation which in turn made the Clintons richer.  It is common knowledge now that the Foundation and all it’s other Foundations in other countries were just another money laundering scheme. (Not just the Clintons  use foundations- John McCain does the same thing with his. Ask how much money the Saudis gave to it!)

The Clintons are a toxic cancer. Only their protective shield of power and access kept them from being hauled off to jail, but their shenanigans always seemed to trap lesser people in a legal nightmare.  Ask Vince Foster and Jim McDougal about that.

Joe has inside contacts. He states that inside the DOJ/FBI conspiracy there are felonies committed including changing FBI statements, obstructing a federal investigation and lying to a FISA court on an affidavit by not revealing the source material used to justify the request was just lies by Clinton allies.

I’m betting Peter Strzok and his girlfriend, along with McCabe are in the middle of all of this, but others are also involved. So will be the John Kerry State department and the White House.  There was a concentrated effort to manipulate the system and turn what were a bunch of lies into “intelligence”.

Mollie Hemingway has another great article.

A criminal referral from top Senate investigators confirms explosive charges in last week’s House Intelligence Committee memo regarding abuse of surveillance authorities at the FBI and Department of Justice. It also reveals a host of problems arising from the bureau’s cooperation with foreign investigator Christopher Steele, who was working on behalf of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. The eight-page memo from Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and Crime and Terrorism Subcommittee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) includes underlying evidence to support the claims.

“It appears the FBI relied on admittedly uncorroborated information, funded by and obtained for Secretary Clinton’s presidential campaign, in order to conduct surveillance of an associate of the opposing presidential candidate. It did so based on Mr. Steele’s personal credibility and presumably having faith in his process of obtaining the information. But there is substantial evidence suggesting that Mr. Steele materially misled the FBI about a key aspect of his dossier efforts, one which bears on his credibility,” Sens. Graham and Grassley wrote.

The letter describes a verification effort before the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) so inadequate it resembles a concerted effort to conceal information from the court. However, the senators blame Steele’s “apparent deception” for Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) failures by FBI and Justice, and refer Steele for investigation of violating federal law regarding making false statements to the U.S. government. The letter also reveals Clinton associates were feeding Steele allegations that he used in his reports.

Last week’s memo from the House Intelligence Committee reported:

  1. A salacious and unverified dossier formed an essential part of the application to secure a warrant against a Trump campaign affiliate named Carter Page. This application failed to reveal that the dossier was bought and paid for by Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee.
  2. The application presented a Yahoo News article as corroboration for the dossier, when in fact it was sourced to the dossier’s author Christopher Steele.
  3. The wife of a high-ranking Justice Department official also worked on behalf of the Clinton campaign effort, and her husband Bruce Ohr funneled her research into the Department of Justice. Although he admitted that Steele “was desperate that Donald Trump not get elected and was passionate about him not being president,” this and the Ohrs’ relationship with the Clinton campaign was concealed from the secret court that grants surveillance warrants.
  4. The dossier was “only minimally corroborated” and unverified, according to FBI officials.

Evidence supporting all of these claims is included in a less redacted version of the senators’ January 4, 2018, referral made publicly available late Tuesday evening. A highly redacted version of the referral was made publicly available the previous day, causing Grassley to ask the FBI to aim for more transparency. The FBI had previously attempted to keep the public from learning details of its relationship with Steele, leading Grassley to publicly decry a “bureaucratic game of hide the ball” by the FBI and DOJ.

According to the senators, the FBI relied on dossier author Steele’s alleged credibility — as opposed to corroboration or verification of his salacious and improbable claims — for the initial warrant application and its three renewals. The application also mentioned a Yahoo News article, but not only didn’t mention the article was sourced to an anonymous Steele, it positively claimed it wasn’t.

Reporter Michael Isikoff recently confirmed that Steele was obviously his source for the article, and that Clinton’s Russia dossier project head Glenn Simpson of Fusion GPS was a longtime friend. The FBI stated to the court that Steele had nothing to do with the article. Shopping his unverified allegations to the media was contrary to Steele’s agreement with the FBI. Even after Steele publicly testified about his many media contacts, the FBI hid that part of his dossier operation from the court and continued to rely on his credibility for surveillance reauthorization.

The senators’ criminal referral confirms the details in the House Intelligence Committee memo, adding quotes and details from testimony by top officials at the FBI and source documents, including two FISA warrant applications provided to the committee. Here are some key excerpts from the criminal referral.

The FISA court has already complained about the FBI behavior.  Mike Rogers did an audit in the NSA and found to his horror the abuse. He notified Trump and Trump’s incoming Presidential organization moved the next day out of the Trump tower.  Why? There was an illegal FISA warrant obtained for that location.  Even after that though,  Comey and the rest still renewed the warrant.  The question is how and why and were they lying to the court.

Had Hillary won, NONE of this would have been discovered, and that was the plan.  After Trump won, there was a desperate attempt to undermine him and either get rid of him or bring him in line- just as Schumer had warned.  Comey was part of that and he was fired for his efforts.  Now he’s just some lanky, twitter user waiting for the indictments to be handed down.

But will they?  In my opinion we have no other choice, especially as we find out more and more this WHOLE THING is a farce created, managed and executed by Clinton and her friends in government.

We are a free society, we CHOSE- good or bad- who we want as President.  Comey- Strzok- Page- McCabe do not chose for us.

But if we do not punish them, the next generation will think it is a good idea to, and our free nation is no longer free.

Drop the hammer.

Apparently, when I spoke the truth I became a Russian Bot. Wait, what?

If the Russian goal in all of this was to sow dissension and mistrust, they have won.  If Hillary, in her attempt to cheat her way to the Presidency, created the dossier with no Russian help (something that may have happened given the facts as we know them now) then she is as close to a traitor as we can get without crossing the line.  It seems wherever she goes and whomever she touches, she creates chaos, corruption and destruction. You can add America to that list.

James Comey’s assistant quit and wrote an article on the way out whining about how he doesn’t like being picked on.  The trouble is he never addresses the small coup attempt Comey was involved in or his part in that illegal effort.  All kidding aside, it’s like a bank robber complaining people are mad he and his buddies rob banks.

Over at RawStory, which I will not link to, I was able to interact with some of the posters, hoping that common sense would make them see how big of a problem this is.  Their visceral hatred of Trump blinds them.  In the end, after I answered all their questions, pointed out the danger all of us are in because of this government employee’s soft coup, I was called a “Russian Bot.”  I kid you not. I don’t even know what that means, and I don’t think they do either.

However, back in the real world the fallout continues.  I am praying Trump orders another special counsel (from outside DC) investigation into the NSA/DOJ/FBI/State political appointee’s attempt to undermine OUR free elections.  I want people to go to jail.  Enough is freaking enough.

Well you would think that, but according to one person, all Trump did when he highlighted the corruption of abuse of power was piss off FBI agents who threatened to use their power to attack Trump…which kind of shows their abuse of power is real…and.. cannot make it up.

Friday on CNN’s “The Situation Room,” network counterterrorism analyst Phil Mudd warned the FBI was going to push back against President Donald Trump’s release of the House Intelligence Committee memo and further suggestions of corruption existing within that agency.

Mudd noted the long-running operation of the FBI versus Trump’s 13 months as president and noted the FBI was vowing “to win.”

Former CIA counterterrorism official Phil Mudd: The FBI people “are ticked” and they’ll be saying of Trump, “You’ve been around for 13 months. We’ve been around since 1908. I know how this game is going to be played. We’re going to win”

“The president is talking about basically corruption at the FBI today, but we oppose the leadership,” he said. “The workforce is going to look at this and say, this is an attack on our ability to conduct an investigation with integrity. There are hundreds of agents and analysts working on this investigation. It’s not just Christopher Wray, the FBI Director.”

Okay, if I were the boss, I would find out who was against making my “company” better and fire them on the spot.

American Thinker has a good summation of what is going on with some decent links.  I’ll let them update this mess.

As the “Russian Collusion” story disintegrates, it takes with it any reason to rely on the Fourth Estate, which in large part assisted in Obama administration wrongdoing. It has proven to be a handmaiden of those who concocted a big lie to bring down a political opponent.  As Josephus said of Haman — Antiq., 50:2, c. 6,) “without a remark upon the almighty power, and admirable justice of the wisdom of God; not only in bringing Haman to his deserved punishment, but in trapping him in the very snare which he had laid for another, and turning a malicious invention upon the head of the inventor.” This time, it’s not only Haman — the FBI and DOJ officials involved in lying to the FISC and unmasking what they learned — but their hangers-on in the press that are trapped as well.

1. Prelude to the Devin Nunes Memo’s Release

As she so often does, Kimberley Strassel nailed it:

Kimberley Strassel‏Verified account @KimStrassel

1) I’ve covered politics a long time. I’ve never — never — seen anything approaching the desperations Ds have to keep this memo quiet. And as we know that worry about law enforcement (Snowden/Manning) is not their biggest worry, this memo must be damning to the core.

2) Have been in journalism all my life. Have never — never — seen the press corps fight so hard against transparency. Same media that after election wondered if it was out of touch with avg Americans, now ignoring the legit worries so many have about govt. accountability.

3) Every journo should be asked if they’d be fighting this hard against disclosure if it was a Bush DOJ/FBI accused of wiretapping abuses. Of course not. They’d be leading the charge to put it all out. 4th estate is supposed to enlighten the people. Not cover for govt. officials.

Others took up the same tack. Notable among them was Mark Penn, a long-time Clinton pollster. He notes the shocking calls by the NY Times and Washington Post for prior restraint — blocking the release of the memo House Intelligence Chairman Nunes prepared based on what witnesses told the committee and official documentation about the spying on the Trump campaign. The hypocrisy of their efforts is astonishing — these are some of the same people who argued successfully that the public was entitled to see (and then to publish) the “Pentagon Papers.” Penn observes, as we must, that the dossier is nonsense, and has been discredited — not as the press is wont to say, “unverified.”

So mainstream journalism today tells us we should see the dossier, even if it’s filled with junk, and read the Comey memos, even if they have no verification — and, yet, be prevented from reading the report of the House Intelligence Committee based on documents that it took the committee six months to pry out of the FBI and Justice Department.

I believe in the First Amendment, and I thought that mainstream media did too. I did not see it as a doctrine of convenience that applied only to documents that buttress one side but then not applied if it might conceivably help the other side.

The effect of this, he concludes, is to keep the public seriously in the dark about what shocking things have occurred — something to remember when some of your friends and family seem to be on a different planet than you are:

So it’s a fact that six senior leaders of the FBI or Justice Department have been either reassigned or fired based on facts that have come out largely from the work of this committee and of the inspector general of the Justice Department. Yet, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) is being branded almost as a lunatic. The hypocrisy here is not confined to newspaper editorial pages. We have seen a veritable news blockade on information coming out of these investigations on the front pages.

In the last Harvard CAPS/Harris Poll, we read people a list of recent facts that have come out and almost all of them were unknown to the public, even when prompted. A majority did know that Comey had drafted the memo on the Clinton investigation long before the investigation was over. But most people did not know who paid for the dossier, and most had not heard about the text messages and their reference to an “insurance policy” in case Trump was elected. After hearing this information, 75 percent said it was significant and 63 percent said the FBI needs to be investigated.

People are waking up. They sense something went horribly wrong. That scares the administrative state more than anything. We pay them to exist. We realize they are hurting our nation, we stop paying them, they have to get a real job or stop existing.

It is all about the money. And the power.

However, the media refuses to help. They rant about transparency, but work hard to protect the liberal agenda.  What they know is what they fear- the Obama FBI/DOJ  fine tuned the systemic corruption of the permanent government bureaucracy.  What is stunning, and heartbreaking, is how easily the employees went for the deal.  Strzok’s text messages reveal he was more concerned with advancement AFTER Hillary won than finding mysterious Russian figures in the Trump campaign. In fact, after ten months he said there was no “there, there” and wanted a chance to be an assistant director.  Comey retires, McCabe moves up, Strzok moves up. Simple.

Money, power, prestige.  Shallow, sad, but dangerous men.

Mark Steyn’s opinion.

The memo discloses a sordid tale of “state corruption,” says Mark Steyn.

In the “national security” sphere, the entire system is ex parte. Carter Page, the peripheral Trump campaign volunteer who was the target of the surveillance, was not represented in court. In fact, he did not even know he was on “trial”. A year and a half after he attracted the attentions of Deputy Director McCabe and his chums, Mr. Page has not been charged with a single crime, never mind (to be old-fashioned about these things) convicted of one. Indeed, the only reason he is even aware that he is/was under 24/7 surveillance by the panopticon state is because McCabe’s FBI found it politic to leak that fact to the newspapers — via the coy disclosure that he briefly came under FISA surveillance as “Male-1” five years earlier.

Mr. Page has committed no crime and been charged with none, but is routinely spoken of in the press as if he has been. In it is interesting to contrast his treatment with, say, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), whom the Department of Justice designated as “unindicted co-conspirators” in a major terrorism-funding case, but which designation is apparently no obstacle to their continued respectability in the media, their invitations to speak at small-town libraries, churches and schools (for example, a CAIR operative will be spreading the word at Firelands College in Huron, Ohio next month), and even their influence upon Robert Mueller’s FBI. [snip]

The DoJ/FBI did not “inform the tribunal of all material facts” but misled the judge, seriously, on fundamental matters necessary to “enable the tribunal to make an informed decision”. They misled him/her as to the nature of the document, its provenance, its credibility, the motivations of its author, and his financial ties to the Clinton camp. They did, however, argue that the dossier had been independently “corroborated” by a September 2016 story in Yahoo News — even though that Yahoo story came from the same guy who authored the dossier: in effect, the Government got its surveillance warrant by arguing that its fake-news dossier from Christopher Steele had been independently corroborated by a fake-news story from Christopher Steele. Either the FBI is exceedingly stupid, which would be disturbing, given their lavish budget. Or the same tight group of FBI/DoJ officials knew very well what they were doing in presenting such drivel to the FISA court.

They’re really the two choices here: either “the world’s premier law enforcement agency” was manipulated by one freaky Brit spook, or “the world’s premier law enforcement agency” conspired with the freaky Brit spook to manipulate the judge.

I wish it were so simple. Glenn Greenwald says since its beginning FISA courts have reviewed over 200k applications and turned down 12.  That is a rubber stamp. Judges do not want to be the guy who refused a warrant that allowed another 9/11 to occur. So they err on the side of letting the FBI take the blame with a bad warrant.  Like more than one person has said- Lawyers are the bane of society.

Linked in the AmThinker piece is the NRO’s Andy McCarthy.  His take shows he’s just disappointed.  He knows the feds, he was one for years.  But there is a threshold, and then there is a new threshold and apparently Obama fined tuned this last crew into a group that had no threshold. They were, and are, out of control. Please understand, the group involved in this were greedy and arrogant, but they were not monsters. They believed they were doing something for “the greater good”, which of course also advanced their lives.  That is the most dangerous kind of ideologue in human history. The dead and destroyed from the hands of those seeking “the greater good” number into the hundreds of millions just in the last century.  Autocrats and authoritarians and tyrants all share the same belief- they are justified in doing great harm for the greater good.

Obviously, the obscure Page was not the main target of the investigation. What animated the government was the possibility of Russian collusion with the Donald Trump presidential campaign. It is also what animated Steele in crafting the dossier. Yet, the Intelligence Committee’s memo notes former FBI director James Comey’s acknowledgement in June 2017 Senate testimony that these dossier allegations were “salacious and unverified.” It appears that they always were. The FBI’s assistant director Bill Priestap told the committee that efforts to corroborate Steele were in their “infancy” when the first warrant was sought. Very shortly thereafter, following a Mother Jones interview of Steele published on October 31, 2016 (i.e., ten days after the initial warrant was issued), Steele was suspended and then terminated as an informant for violating his agreement not to disclose his status as an FBI informant. The memo says that after Steele’s termination, the bureau assessed the corroboration of his claims to be “minimal.” Yet, high-ranking FBI and Justice Department officials continued to approve warrant applications to the FISA court based significantly on Steele’s claims. The memo states that, for the FBI, director James Comey approved the first three, and deputy director Andrew McCabe the last one; for the Justice Department, the warrant applications were approved by Deputy Attorneys General Sally Yates (of the Obama administration, presumably two times), Dana Boente (as “acting” DAG during the Trump administration), and Rod Rosenstein (President Trump’s appointed DAG). On one occasion, according to the memo, the Justice Department and FBI attempted to address the lack of verification of the dossier’s claims by what turned out to be circular reliance on a media report. The news story, published on September 23, 2016, by Yahoo’s Michael Isikoff, was based on information from Steele. That is, the Justice Department represented to the court that the information it alleged in the FISA warrant application was reliable because it was independently corroborated by sources in Mr. Isikoff’s story. Unbeknownst to the FBI, Steele was Isikoff’s source. Steele was retained for the Democrat-funded anti-Trump project by the research firm Fusion GPS. At Fusion, he collaborated with Nellie Ohr, the wife of then-Associate Deputy Attorney General Bruce Ohr — a senior Justice Department official who worked closely with the deputy attorneys general who approved the FISA warrants. Steele met with Ohr both before and after he was terminated as an FBI source. In September 2016 (i.e., before the first warrant application), the memo recounts that Steele told Ohr he “was desperate that Donald Trump not get elected and was passionate about him not being president.” After formally terminating Steele, the FBI periodically interviewed Associate Deputy Attorney General Ohr, who reported on his meetings with Steele. In effect, this enabled the bureau indirectly to maintain Steele as an information source. Further, the memo elaborates that Ohr eventually transmitted to the FBI “all of his wife’s opposition research, paid for by the DNC and the Clinton campaign via Fusion GPS.” The FISA court was not informed that Steele was paid $160,000 by the Clinton campaign and the DNC, through Fusion GPS and a law firm. Nor was mention made of his stated determination to prevent a Trump presidency. While the FBI formally cut Steele off after the October 31 Mother Jones interview, the memo points out that he should have been terminated for an earlier round of media interviews in September 2016, including the one that resulted in Michael Isikoff’s Yahoo story. This evidently did not happen because Steele lied to the FBI about his contacts with journalists.

The Nellie Ohr/Fusion GPS relationship troubles me the most.  What if we learn she had access to raw NSA data from her clearance through the FBI. Did she use it to create the dossier and give it depth? Did Fusion GPS gain access to those raw data file contents through Nellie? Nellie is the wife of Bruce Ohr, a senior DOJ attorney, who kept meeting with Simpson on the sly after Simpson was officially booted by the FBI.  What if they did and the “For the greater good” deep state hides it?

Folks you can’t make it up and as I have said a million times, my FIRST flip offer would be to Bruce and Nellie.  Neither want to go to jail. Right now I doubt they are telling the whole truth -like a typical lawyer who thinks they can outsmart the other typical lawyer.

But I’m betting if they do, this whole thing falls apart like the final explosive end of the Star Wars Death Star.  I use that analogy because apparently Trump pissed off the Empire and all the little Storm Troopers are mad.

Clearing the fog around the FBI misuse of power. Do not listen to the MSM- it’s a crime.

Let’s cut through the bull.  The memo is not an indictment and evidence. It is simply an opening statement by a prosecutor at the BEGINNING of a trial.  It outlines the crime, who did the crime, the method of the crime and then if it were in the courtroom would end with “And the State will prove to the jury during this trial that…”

The evidence coming will be the IG report.  The IG has been sharing their documents, 1.2 million of them, with the committees.  And people inside the cabal are cooperating. I saw the memo mentioned Bruce Ohr’s testimony, but he didn’t talk to the committees, which means he is talking to the IG. Bruce doesn’t want to go to jail. He doesn’t want his wife to go to jail.  He will talk.

The MSM will do its  “nothing to see here” move and that “Trump is a Russian troll” dance. They will be joined by McCain and the NeverTrumper crew.  But it won’t matter.  The genie is out of the box. After the IG report, which will be damning (it caused Wray to jettison that arrogant and corrupted McCabe like shit from a goose!), the DOJ under Sessions will have no choice but to assign a special prosecutor and grand jury to the case.  If Sessions is smart- and that may be a question only the future will answer- he will go outside DC to get the prosecutor.  I would ask Trey Gowdy if he knows someone from South Carolina he trusts to get the job done right.

The liberals will scream nothing to see here.  They are wrong. Simply put the Obama FBI/DOJ decided to save Hillary and destroy Trump using the powers granted them by the people.  It is illegal and they have to go to jail.

From a good article in the USA Today.

The American people are being forced to confront a fundamental political question that was first asked centuries ago by the Roman satirist Juvenal: Who shall guard the guardians? What to do when the tools meant to protect the people are used to harm them? The memo released today by the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence is the first step in answering that question.

The memo’s central indictment is that top Obama administration officials knowingly and willfully used unverified information paid for by the Hillary Clinton campaign, some of which came from Russian intelligence, in a secret court document to justify a counter-intelligence investigation of the Donald Trump campaign during the 2016 presidential election. This corrupt process was later the basis for a campaign to sabotage the incoming Trump administration and to fuel a witch hunt against the president.

According to the memo, high ranking FBI officials repeatedly sought, received and renewed Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrants to engage in surveillance of members of the Trump campaign during the election. These officials, including then-Director James Comey and recently removed Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, justified the warrant requests before the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC), in part, with information generated by Christopher Steele, who was working on behalf of Hillary Clinton’s campaign for the firm Fusion GPS. Steele’s main contact at the Justice Department was Associate Deputy Attorney General Bruce Ohr, whose wife was also employed by Fusion GPS as a Russia expert working on anti-Trump opposition research.

Mr. Ohr was well aware of Steele’s anti-Trump purpose and the unreliability of the evidence, but the court was told none of this. And, according to the memo, McCabe testified to the committee that without the Steele dossier no FISA “surveillance warrant would have been sought.”

Other critical background information was revealed in text messages between FBI agent Peter Strzok and his mistress FBI Attorney Lisa Page, who discussed with McCabe the now infamous “insurance policy” against President Trump. The texts reveal a disturbing climate of anti-Trump bias among the investigators themselves that might never have been known since, as the Roman Juvenal also said, “thecommon crime keeps its silence.” But that was before texting.

The Nunes FISA memo gives insight into a systematic abuse of power that started at the highest levels of the Obama administration. The memo does not endanger national security but rather exposes a national security threat, since the only proven Russian collusion that resulted in government action is that between the named FBI officials, the Clinton campaign, Fusion GPS, and Russian intelligence.

The argument that the memo exposes classified information is specious, since nothing in the memo is classified. No sources and methods are exposed that are not already publicly known. And all these types of arguments distract from the central point of the abuse of power. This is hardly the only recent misuse of the FISA process.

The memo has troubling implications for Robert Mueller’s inquiry. We now see that a network of conspirators abused government power seeking to undermine the electoral process and, failing that, to sabotage a president in a process that is still ongoing. The Mueller probe to the extent it was based on such an effort is fruit of the poison tree and should be suspended immediately.

Let me get back to the Mueller issue in a moment.

The way the FBI/DOJ will argue they were afraid that Trump was compromised, so they did what they had to do to “For the greater good.”  That will be the same argument every bad actor throughout history has used when killing off their own people or destroying their own country.  It is the authoritarian rationalization used for bad acts forever.  It should not be accepted by anyone as a justification.  However, the Left, which is usually the culprit in history (socialists, communists, fascists, etc), will jump all over this because it meets THEIR goals.  And you can see it already in the reaction to the memo.  “Nothingburger” one called it.  Gregg Jarrett from Fox will disagree.

In local police work you always have the State watching you. If the State fails, the feds watch the State AND you.  That’s not a bad thing!  But who watches the Feds if they screw up?

The answer is nobody- except Congress.  Which brings us to the Nunez committee memo.

Remember, the IG for the DOJ/FBI has been digging for a year.  He has stuff he shared with the committee.  I’m betting he has stuff he hasn’t shared that is far more damning.  It was his report that forced Wray to remove McCabe.  McCabe allegedly screamed if they tried to take his pension he would take the whole FBI down!  If that is true, then it is a good question to ask “What does he have that would do that?” Thus the special counsel…

I know cops and how they think. These guys are not cops but political appointees who hitched their wagons to Hillary. She wins, they all get rewarded- as it is done on the Left and especially with HRC.  She lost. Now they are scrambling and the democrats and media are creating cover.   However, cops know what they can and cannot do.  They know people are watching them. But given the chance of no supervision they can and often do push their authority too far. (See the Baltimore case ongoing now)  These guys are much worse.  They have the power of police and the cover of being federal employees and in the right party.  They are DANGEROUS AND OUT OF CONTROL!!!  Which is why they need to be arrested and held accountable.  They believed they are above the law.  For our form of government to survive we need to make sure they are all wrong.

Now back to why I think this is a big deal beyond the back and forth politics. Not for something done, but something not done.   A few days ago a website noted that Mueller and Flynn’s attorneys agreed to delay his sentencing on his single charge of lying to the FBI.   That is strange.  Mueller was so proud of nailing Flynn.  It was rumored Weinstein threatened Flynn’s son to get Flynn to agree to the plea. That’s a lot of work to get something and suddenly have a delay in sentencing that is quietly agreed upon.  Is Flynn cooperating or is something else going on?

Flynn could be sentenced to federal prison for up to five years for making false statements to the FBI.

“It’s a routine play that federal sentencing gets put off until you’re done cooperating,” Trusty said, adding that this does not give any insight into the “pace” of Mueller’s probe, but rather the “existence of it.”

“They are basically saying ‘we may use Flynn for more information,’ but who knows where they think he fits in the grand scheme of the investigation,” Trusty said. “They obviously think he still has some potential, affirmative work to do.”

But another former U.S. official told Fox News the decision to delay Flynn’s sentencing could be related to the judge presiding over the case.

U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia Judge Rudolph Contreras took Flynn’s guilty plea on Dec. 1, 2017 – but just days later, Contreras recused himself from the case.

A court spokesperson told Fox News that the courts do not disclose grounds for recusal.

“It may very well be that the guilty plea cannot stand because of all of this,” former federal prosecutor Joseph diGenova told Fox News Thursday, noting that Contreras also is a judge on the U.S. Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court.

It could be either, but I’m leaning into the fact Mueller now realizes his whole case just took a crap.  Why?  Remember, Wray got a heads up on the IG report and removed McCabe, the “Andy” in the meeting referenced by Strzok and his lover, Lisa Page, talking about the “insurance policy”.  It is reported the IG investigation discovered that McCabe, who’s wife took nearly 700k from a friend of Clinton’s for a campaign that was never going to succeed (we call that a payoff in the cop world), was asking agents to change their official records.

McCabe’s number two and the guy who has his fingerprints all over the Clinton scandal, the “opening of a counter intelligence investigation” of the Trump campaign, the FISA warrant and the Flynn interview is Peter Strzok.  You have to put yourself in Robert Mueller’s shoes.  He has a sterling reputation that is probably as fake as Comey’s BUT it is his reputation.  He is old, makes millions pedaling his lawyer skills in and around D.C.. He doesn’t need to get jammed up when it is found out that Strzok lied to frame Flynn or lied to get a warrant in order to illegally spy on Trump and his people in a convoluted reverse targeting scheme. Reverse targeting lead to the unmasking of dozens of Trump campaign people by Obama administration employees like Farkas and Rice. (another pending investigation)

If Mueller has figured this out or got a call from someone giving him a heads up and he continues to abuse Michael Flynn by sentencing him, then Mueller exposes himself to professional misconduct and abuse of power.  You remember what happened to the prosecutor in the Duke lacrosse case?  Mueller does and he wants no part of the threat of the loss of his license and serious civil liability. So he called a pause on his case to see what shakes out.

The reason I fall on this side is that right after the memo came out Michael Flynn’s son let it loose

Flynn Jr.’s initial reaction to the memo: WOW👀👀WOW #MemoDay

“Sooooo this is beginning to make a lot more sense…”

Flynn Jr.’s reaction to the bombshell news that McCabe said under oath the FBI would never have sought a FISA warrant to spy on Trump’s camp but not for the Russia dossier.


There’s no way Hillary and Obama didn’t know about the dossier being used to obtain a FISA warrant which ultimately sparked the Russia invesigation.

Flynn Jr. hammered John McCain!

Flynn Jr. reacted to a reporter who said, “we still havent found the person who leaked the Flynn-Kislyak call contents to the press, which is a felony.
But I think we are getting closer today, some names to check out.”

“Thank you for bringing this to light,” Flynn Jr. tweeted.

A few days before the memo was released, Michael Flynn Jr stuck up for his father.

“I’m going to state the obvious….my father is a patriot who decided to help a candidate get elected He always said the 2016 election was about the “heart and soul” of this country.” 

I’m going to state the obvious….my father @GenFlynn is a patriot who decided to help a candidate get elected @POTUS

He always said the 2016 election was about the “heart and soul” of this country.

On December 1st it was reported General Michael Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI deep state operatives in the ongoing Trump witch hunt.

On Wednesday Special counsel Robert Mueller requested the postponement of former National Security Advisor Gen. Michael Flynn’s sentencing.

General Flynn should be pardoned and reimbursed for all of his legal fees.

Here’s the deal. If Michael Flynn was cooperating with Mueller, his son- who is also a target by the over eager Weinstein – would not tweet his butt off calling bullshit on the whole deal.  In addition, Gowdy says he trusts Mueller to do the right thing. I call it self preservation.

But why chase down and jail the leaders and crew of this attempted soft coup?  It’s not about Trump.  If they did it in 2008, thinking Obama was a communist plant, I would say the same thing.  We as Americans get to make good choices and bad choices when picking our politicians.  If the established federal bureaucracy decided THEY are the final arbiter of who is good or bad, then nothing resembling America is left.  That can’t happen.  Can you imagine the howling by the Left and Media when a conservative bureaucracy started removing the likes of Schumer (liar and corrupt), Waters and Jackson (dumb and dangerous), Pelosi (insane) and Clinton (a criminal)? Yet, they are okay having the same crew going after Trump.

So the bigger picture here is you have to punish the bad actors inside the permanent bureaucracy and remove them by grabbing them by the roots and pulling hard! The government MUST prove to the people that no one is above the law!  To do that the government has to appoint a special counsel from outside DC and use the IG report as a guide to find and prosecute those who lied to the court, helped that lie continue, lied on documents and conspired to commit a felony.  You cannot let them go. You cannot let them retire like we did Lois Lerner.  Not just for them, but for the next generation of federal employees who think they can do bad acts and get away with them.  You want the next generation to look at this moment, realize Comey isn’t up for parole for another five and then say to their buddy.  “Sounds like a good idea, but I don’t want to end up sharing a cell with him.”

Then we win.  Anything less and we lose.

Trump is the perfect vehicle for this. He gets mad when you make fun of his hair. Can you imagine how pissed he is over this???!!  They went after his campaign, then him, then HIS KIDS!!!!

If I were there, I would advise him to burn it down.  Rip out the roots and burn it down. Make sure the lesson is learned.  Start with McCabe. See if he wants to help take it apart for a reduced sentence.

Joe DiGenova explains the entire plot for Hillary and against Trump

Take the time. He lays it out in detail. A veteran federal prosecutor and independent counsel with decades of experience.

You have to accept this is really, really bad.

Mueller and the DOJ commit obstruction. Who didn’t see that coming.

A couple of factual main points here:

  1. The dossier/Russian collusion effort is a Hillary/DNC generated hit piece.
  2. The “shadow government/deep state” which Obama largely put in place used the dossier to get an illegal surveillance FISA warrant on Trump as a candidate and as a President in order undermine him.
  3. The firing of Comey created Mueller, which was the plan all along.
  4. The people Mueller hired are all deep state players and Trump haters.
  5. The real collusion, as being exposed now, is between those people inside the DOJand FBI working against a lawful election and a lawfully elected President.
  6. At this point enough evidence has been released to question if Mueller is also involved and if the investigation (which is now into its fifteenth month) is and has always been a sham.
  7. Mueller is now actively, along with the DOJ, participating in an obstruction of justice against the Congressional investigations.

How many texts will be turned over? First, it’s not possible to know how many texts from the Dec. 14, 2016 to May 17, 2017 time period will be recovered and turned over. But of the 50,000 the Justice Department already has in hand, officials say they have already turned over all they’re going to give to Congress.

That means Justice has decided to allow Congress to see just 7,000 of a total of 50,000 Strzok-Page texts – slightly less than 15 percent of the total number of texts the Justice Department has now. Why is that? Justice Department officials point to a Jan. 19 letter from Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd to Capitol Hill investigators explaining which texts would and would not be turned over.

“The department is not providing text messages that were purely personal in nature,” Boyd wrote. “Furthermore, the department has redacted from some work-related text messages portions that were purely personal. The department’s aim in withholding purely personal text messages and redacting personal portions of work-related text messages was primarily to facilitate the committee’s access to potentially relevant text messages without having to cull through large quantities of material unrelated to either the investigation of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of a personal email server or the investigation into Russian efforts to interfere with the 2016 presidential election.”

inally – and this could be significant or not – Boyd said that “in a few instances,” the Justice Department consulted with the office of Trump-Russia special prosecutor Robert Mueller and made some redactions “related to the structure, operation, and substance of the [Special Counsel’s Office]’s investigation because it is ongoing.” Hill investigators don’t really know what that covers. (The letter said if Congress has questions about redactions in a particular text, the department would “work with” Congress to further describe or reveal redacted information “in a closed setting.”)

The bottom line is that the Justice Department has turned over a fairly small percentage of the Strzok-Page texts. Even assuming many of the texts would be personal – the two were having an extramarital affair, after all – some Hill investigators wonder whether roughly 43,000 of the 50,000 known texts were wholly personal.

And then, there is the question of those formerly missing texts. How many are there? How many will have something to do with Trump-Russia or Clinton emails? The time period involved, Dec. 14, 2016 to May 17, 2017, covered some of the key moments in the FBI’s investigation of the Trump-Russia affair: conversations between Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn and Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak; the completion and publication of the intelligence community assessment of Russian interference in the 2016 election; the briefing in which FBI director James Comey told President-elect Donald Trump about the Trump dossier; the president’s inauguration; the nomination and confirmation of new Justice Department leadership; Flynn’s interview with the FBI (conducted by Strzok); Comey’s assurances to Trump that he, Trump, was not under investigation; a variety of revelations, mostly in the Washington Post and New York Times, about various Trump figures under investigation; Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ recusal from the Russia probe; the firing of top Obama Justice Department holdover Sally Yates; Trump’s tweet alleging he was wiretapped; Trump’s firing of Comey; and, finally, the appointment of Mueller.

Right now, Justice Department officials are not saying how far along the process of recovering the texts is, or how long the work will take, or how many texts will ultimately be turned over to Congress. Just another unknown in a long and secretive investigation.

In addition, the DOJ wanted to “review” the four page memo the Congress created that outlines the FBI/DOJ criminal acts. The DOJ claims they would be looking for “classified” material. And you know where that is going, so the Congressional investigators ignored that stupid request.

Ask yourself a serious question after putting down any bias you might have either way- “Does Mueller have the right to hide evidence of a conspiracy to commit involving his people from a lawful Congressional investigation?

If the answer is no, then you must realize he’s part of it too.

The first two are proven deep state, is the third? Probably.

However, they will not give up.  The “shadow government” as it is being put will not give up their power or income or ideology that government should be in charge of everyone (as long as THEY are in charge of government for course).

Plus, at this point, Mueller looks like a cartoon character driving a car this is falling apart. The wheels are off, the engine is on fire and the doors are flopping. He may end up, like that cartoon guy, just bouncing along on his butt holding a steering wheel! But he doesn’t care.  He wants to get something, ANYTHING on Trump so a flipped Congress can impeach him before 2020, as indicated by Soros and John Kerry just recently.

Dangerous times folks..dangerous times.

The obstruction of justice is nation wrecking. Covering for Clinton ruins trust…forever.

The impending crash that will be the Obama DOJ/FBI coverup of the Hillary Clinton scandal and subsequent attempt to undermine a legitimate Presidential election will resound through the nation and time for a long, long time.  There is no way Strzok and his girlfriend could have foreseen their names would be linked to the literal destruction of a nation.

The ConservativeTreehouse folks have been breaking this apart for a long time.  Recently, they have been doing a good job linking the people in power to each other as members of the inner cabal set on taking Trump out.

The person assigned to interview Hillary was Peter Strzok.  It appears his lover, Lisa Page, was also there.  They discussed in texts how they wanted to make sure they didn’t upset the next President of the United States because they were afraid Hillary would retaliate. That message says so much about so many things;  1. How vengeful they knew her to be. 2. How eager they were to please her. 3. How willing they were to sandbag the interview to make sure she didn’t say anything that would get her in trouble.  In essence, the fix was in.

In another text Strzok discussed with Page that the FBI had lied to Congress and not given them the whole interview notes from the Hillary interview because  it would “absolutely inflame Congress”.   Let me make this clear.  It isn’t Strzok’s or Page’s or the FBI’s job to worry about if evidence of a crime would inflame anyone.  The fact they believe it would and decide to lie about it undermines the FBI and the DOJ.   Nobody will EVER believe anything they do or say anymore.  The Mueller investigation is supposed to be about the Russian trying to undermine our form of government. In truth, the real culprits are the people who worked with Mueller.

What this made me do is something I have tried to avoid- read the Clinton transcripts. I knew they would be bullshit, and it would piss me off knowing the fix was in and there were no hard questions asked. But I had to know what they did put in to figure out what they left out that was so much more damaging.  Here’s the bottom line of it- 1. She played dumb.  That is the theme Comey put forth in his statement.  She was too stupid the charge criminally. (But not too stupid to be President…?) 2. She is lying. Because even though she claims to be the most qualified person EVER to be President, a lot of that based on her experience, .  I swear to God, you read her interview and she doesn’t make the grade for a custodian position!  In fact, this is her in the interview.

Pick either character. Both fit.

Of course, somebody did something or the server would not have been used or the emails not sent. But the DOJ avoided charging Cheryl Mills or Huma or anyone on her staff by giving them immunity.  Remember, EVERYONE down the chain from Mills to the Platte River IT guys got immunity.  So NOBODY did it! is the outcome we get.

If you spend time reading the eye bleeding lies in the interview you find that Hillary didn’t know what classified meant, didn’t remember if she was ever briefed EVER on who or what gets classified, was certain EVERYBODY else did it wrong and she depended on them, so she’s the victim of a huge conspiracy to make her look bad.  It really is amazing that it was even allowed to continue.  But Strzok’s texts reveal exactly why it was done the way it was.

Strzok was acting as part of a larger conspiracy that included these people.

from the TCH gang.

In several texts, Strzok and Page discuss keeping others in the loop.  Let me cut to the chase here. Page and Strzok (mostly him) are the “Mikeys” in this conspiracy.  They didn’t know it, but they were being set up in case this all fell apart.  Further, Strzok’s texts indicate he was hungry to move up the chain and doing the bidding of corrupt supervisors is exactly how he thought that would make it happen. We all know “that guy.” He’ll do anything.

But, about now he’s figured out if they can the upper crew (Comey, McCabe, Bill, Bruce) will throw him under the bus if they can.  If the real cops show up and get to him and convince him he’s abandoned, his personality will demand revenge.  He’s that sold on himself.

Speaking of real cops showing up.  The first principle in this investigation should be “They are going to jail.”  They all need to know that.  Any interview of a suspect, after acquiring enough chargeable evidence should start out with.  “Let me clear one thing up.  You are going to jail.  This is all about how LONG you are in jail.  The only way to shorten your time is to cooperate and give everyone up.”

Like I said many times, there are on G. Gordon Liddys in this mamby pamby, yuppie crew.  They will not do well in prison AND THEY KNOW IT!  So, when the “let’s make a deal” door opens, they will all run through it, trying to be the first one in!

However, it will not be easy.  I am convinced they will do the same thing Hillary did and Lerner did and the rest did.  Act dumb, claim innocence, lawyer up.   Strzok will be called rogue.  McCabe will be shocked he was not following orders precisely.  Comey, who hears the footsteps behind him and has been probably warned by his mentor, Mueller, that he can’t protect him any longer, is down to tweeting obscure biblical references and depending on Mueller to give him immunity.

The other problem is we do not have in place a unit that will investigate their brethren fairly.  Nobody in the upper management of the DOJ or FBI can be trusted any longer to do their duty.   My ex-partner put it best. “Obama finally got the DOJ/FBI he wanted.”  It took eight years but it is now compromised beyond repair- short of it being ripped from the roots and replanted.  Nobody as the balls to do that. So they will settle for some low hanging fruit (Strzok and Page and probably Bruce Ohr and his wife Nellie), let McCabe retire, Comey to disappear and we end up knowing in our hearts justice got screwed because they are above the law.

Strzok and Page were given another job by the cabal of conspirators. They were the “sources” in a number of leaked stories to friendly journalists.  Each story was designed to change or soften the narrative in the Hillary email scandal.  Again, TCH folks are all over it.

There has been a great deal of speculation about FBI Agent Peter Strzok and FBI Attorney Lisa Page leaking to media in their efforts to shape stories conducive to their pro-Clinton/anti-Trump efforts. Prior reporting showed the strong possibility Page and Strzok were leaking to the Wall Street Journal.

“Article is out, but hidden behind paywall so can’t read it,” Page texted Strzok on Oct. 24, 2016.

“Wsj? Boy that was fast,” Strzok texted back, using the initials of the famed financial newspaper. “Should I ‘find’ it and tell the team?” (link)

Some new information today, and some additional research, and we can not only confirm the prior suspicions outlined by John Solomon (The Hill) – but we also discover the actual Wall Street Journal reporter they were leaking to.

Yesterday Senator Chuck Grassley released a series of text messages between Page and Strzok (full pdf here). Within the release there is a portion of messaging where Lisa Page is identified on the phone with “Devlin” (see page #5 – screen grab below):

[Peter Strzok is ‘INBOX’ and Lisa Page is “OUTBOX’]

It now appears the “Devlin” in question is former Wall Street Journal National Security reporter Devlin Barrett, currently with The Washington Post.

Here’s why? On October 28th, 2016 (as above), at the exact time the re-opening of the Clinton investigation hit the media news-cycle, Page and Strzok were texting.  From the released messaging we see at 5:19pm Lisa Page is on the phone with “Devlin”:

♦Page: 5:19pm “Still on the phone with Devlin. Mike’s phone is ON FIRE.”

♥Strzok: 5:29pm “You might wanna tell Devlin he should turn on CNN, there’s news on.”

♦Page: 5:30pm “He knows. He just got handed a note.”

♥Strzok: 5:33pm “Ha. He asking about it now?”

♦Page: 5:34pm “Yeah. It was pretty funny. Coming now.”

At 5:36pm Devlin Barrett tweets:

Apparently the “per sources” reference is FBI Attorney Lisa Page and FBI Agent Peter Strzok leaking to Wall Street Journal reporter Devlin Barrett.

Again, “Mikey” will do anything.  When the evidence is collected Strzok has been left holding the bag.  The only way he wins is to flip and tell on his bosses.   Strzok has a couple of tweets about how he wanted to advance.  In one, he hesitated to join the “Collusion” investigation because he had been in charge for 10 months and knew there was none. He said he would have rather got a promotion and continued his rise to the top.  That text is also revealing.  First, he was in charge of the investigation for ten months and found nothing.  Second, he didn’t want to be sidelined by some bullshit political hit job IF it impeded his political rise to the top.  As Yoda might say, “Ego, he as much of.”

But in the end he did stay, and he did do what they wanted and he did sandbag Flynn with a cheap lying the the FBI charge by using what appears to be illegally obtained FISA data. (Imagine what that part of the investigation by Congress will reveal!)   But then the wheels came off because what appears (and I trust no one in government) the IG caught Strzok with his figurative and literal pants down.

The FBI tried to hide the missing texts between the two.  That ended quickly when the bureaucrats realized the excuse “the dog ate my computer stuff” isn’t working anymore after eight years of criminal activity within the Obama administration (yes criminal). That excuse is dead in the water!  IF the IG did his job and seized not only the working phone but the “other phone” Page referenced and made them give up their private email they send to themselves (an old terrorist trick by the way), then we may get even more juicy tidbits of conspiracy.

However, this event is a warning to America. We are in a civil war.  The Left’s “long march” to a totalitarian society with them in charge is well on its way.  People like Pelosi and Kerry and Hillary and Jeb Bush are just fellow travelers and implements of the final solution.   When it was said “Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely” the author had this time and these people in mind.  It doesn’t matter which individual, it is a mindset shared by all abusers of the innocent and the lesser.  Socialism covered in the blood caused by “good intentions”.  We are no exception.  To Daniel Greenfield’s article “How a Civil War happens.”

This is a civil war.

There aren’t any soldiers marching on Charleston… or Myrtle Beach. Nobody’s getting shot in the streets. Except in Chicago… and Baltimore, Detroit and Washington D.C.

But that’s not a civil war. It’s just what happens when Democrats run a city into the ground. And then they dig a hole in the ground so they can bury it even deeper.

If you look deep enough into that great big Democrat hole, you might even see where Jimmy Hoffa is buried.

But it’s not guns that make a civil war. It’s politics.

Guns are how a civil war ends. Politics is how it begins.

How do civil wars happen?

Two or more sides disagree on who runs the country. And they can’t settle the question through elections because they don’t even agree that elections are how you decide who’s in charge.

That’s the basic issue here. Who decides who runs the country? When you hate each other but accept the election results, you have a country. When you stop accepting election results, you have a countdown to a civil war.

I know you’re all thinking about President Trump.

He won and the establishment, the media, the democrats, rejected the results. They came up with a whole bunch of conspiracy theories to explain why he didn’t really win. It was the Russians. And the FBI. And sexism, Obama, Bernie Sanders and white people.

It’s easier to make a list of the things that Hillary Clinton doesn’t blame for losing the election. It’s going to be a short list.

A really short list. Herself.

The Mueller investigation is about removing President Trump from office and overturning the results of an election.

We all know that. But it’s not the first time they’ve done this.

The first time a Republican president was elected this century, they said he didn’t really win. The Supreme Court gave him the election. There’s a pattern here.

Trump didn’t really win the election. Bush didn’t really win the election. Every time a Republican president won an election this century, the Democrats insist he didn’t really win.

Now say a third Republican president wins an election in say, 2024.

What are the odds that they’ll say that he didn’t really win? Right now, it looks like 100 percent.

What do sure odds of the Dems rejecting the next Republican president really mean? It means they don’t accept the results of any election that they don’t win.

It means they don’t believe that transfers of power in this country are determined by elections.

That’s a civil war.

There’s no shooting. At least not unless you count the attempt to kill a bunch of Republicans at a charity baseball game practice. But the Democrats have rejected our system of government.

This isn’t dissent. It’s not disagreement.

You can hate the other party. You can think they’re the worst thing that ever happened to the country. But then you work harder to win the next election. When you consistently reject the results of elections that you don’t win, what you want is a dictatorship.

Your very own dictatorship.

The only legitimate exercise of power in this country, according to the left, is its own. Whenever Republicans exercise power, it’s inherently illegitimate.

The attacks on Trump show that elections don’t matter to the left.

Republicans can win an election, but they have a major flaw. They’re not leftists.

That’s what the leftist dictatorship looks like.

The left lost Congress. They lost the White House. So what did they do? They began trying to run the country through Federal judges and bureaucrats.

Every time that a Federal judge issues an order saying that the President of the United States can’t scratch his own back without his say so, that’s the civil war.

Our system of government is based on the constitution, but that’s not the system that runs this country.

The left’s system is that any part of government that it runs gets total and unlimited power over the country.

If it’s in the White House, then the president can do anything. And I mean anything. He can have his own amnesty for illegal aliens. He can fine you for not having health insurance. His power is unlimited.

He’s a dictator.

But when Republicans get into the White House, suddenly the President can’t do anything. He isn’t even allowed to undo the illegal alien amnesty that his predecessor illegally invented.

A Democrat in the White House has “discretion” to completely decide every aspect of immigration policy. A Republican doesn’t even have the “discretion” to reverse him.

That’s how the game is played. That’s how our country is run.


To accomplish this, the Left has infiltrated key sectors of our society as we watched.  They promised they would do it and they did, and we let them.  So shame on us.  They are embedded in our government at all levels.  Trump is the first real threat in generations!  Probably since Eisenhower who warned us about this in the sixties. The “deep state” exists.  It is not only federal employees, but the liberal press who are fellow travelers.  To them, Trump winning is a HUGE threat and something they cannot accept.  So, as Greenfield pointed out,  this is a war.

Those who want a free country, a free choice, and not be ruled by elites who will destroy America, this is the time to fight back!  Do not submit to anything they want, and do not trust anything they say. If you read it in the Times or Post or hear it on CNN, assume it is a lie.

You have to remember I supported Comey’s press conference, because in a sense he wasn’t lying- nobody was going arrest or prosecute Hillary. Obama was communicating with her through an email with a fake name, which means he lied to America when he said he didn’t know until it broke in the papers.  So if she went, he went.  And that’s not going to happen.  So,  I thought he did it as a warning to us because I bought his whole “above the fray” persona.  I was wrong.  Yet, in his first drafts of his conference, he did list the criminal acts she committed.  Then he let them be changed or remove them. As he did the reference to Obama’s usage of the Clinton server.  That is a crime.  He knows it and he knows his persona is ruined.  Forty years of grooming his reputation is shattered because, like many others, he got in bed with the Clintons.  He has no other moves left but to throw in with Mueller’s bullshit investigation and hope the Left can cover him with constant CNN/MSNBC/Post lies.

Remember, if you tell a lie long enough to enough people, it becomes the truth.  Or so we’ve been told by another socialist who made his name in German seventy years ago.
