Trump Vows to Get Rid of the “Lingering Stench” in the DOJ/FBI…Why He Needs to Start With “Deputy Director Stinker”

September 22, 2018

scope-redacted-dt-600

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s actions, as recounted by the New York Times Friday, are the equivalent of an attempted coup — a plot to overthrow the president. – Gregg Jarrett, Fox News

FoxNews.com reports that

During a rally in Springfield, Missouri, Friday night, President Trump took aim at the FBI and the Department of Justice, vowing to “get rid of” what he described as “a lingering stench.” 
 
His remarks come amid reports that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein last year suggested secretly recording Trump to expose chaos in the White House and enlisting Cabinet members to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove him from office.

Trump did not specifically mention Rosenstein during the rally, who has adamantly denied the accusations.

“Just look at what is now being exposed in our Department of Justice and the FBI. Look at what’s going on,” Trump said. “And I want to tell you, we have great people in the Department of Justice. We have great people. These are people, I really believe, you take a poll, I gotta be at 95 percent. But you got some real bad ones. You’ve seen what’s happened at the FBI. They’re all gone. They’re all gone. They’re all gone. But there’s a lingering stench and we’re going to get rid of that too.”

One Political Pundit wishes to advise the President that fumigating the Halls of Justice might be a bad idea.

According to FoxNews.com,

In the wake of a New York Times report Friday alleging Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein made statements about secretly recording President Trump and invoking the 25th Amendment, law Professor Jonathan Turley said it likely put a strain on an already tough White House relationship.

Rosenstein denied the report.

The vice president and a majority of cabinet members would have the power to collectively direct Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) and Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) to remove Trump under the 1967 amendment.

Turley, of George Washington University, said on “Your World” that there is already a lack of a working relationship between Rosenstein and Trump, and that the president is also on icy terms with Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

He said there is also other reports Rosenstein did say such things while meeting with then-Deputy FBI Director Andy McCabe and FBI attorney Lisa Page, but that he was “joking.”

“Joking about recording the president or having him forcibly removed [from office] does not help their relationship either,” he said. 

Noting the upcoming midterm elections, Turley said that if Trump were to respond to the report by conducting a mass firing of DOJ officials, “the optics would be perfectly horrible for the White House.”

I disagree.

However, lets put first things first, shall we?

Gentle Readers, do you remember when Rosenstein appeared before the House Judiciary Committee last summer?

Dep. Director Rosenstein’s smugness in answering the tough questions thrown at him by Rep. Ron DeSantis and others seemed to be the reaction of a professional bureaucrat, not someone interested in “Truth, Justice, and the American Way” to borrow a phrase from the opening of the “Superman” Television Series which I used to watch with my Daddy at 6:00 a.m. on Saturday mornings.

To this day, I remain both disgusted and concerned about a Deputy Attorney General of the DOJ acting as if it was beneath him to answer questions which Congress and the American People have a right to know concerning the attempted interference in the 2016 Presidential Election by Deep State Operatives within our own government.

The Hierarchy of the DOJ, like our municipal police organizations around the nation, are supposed to “serve and protect” the citizens of our great country.

Not themselves and the Democratic Party.

The silly games which Rosenstein and the Hierarchy of the FBI and the Special Counsel which he appointed have been playing for the entirety of the Trump Presidency became old, stale, and unappreciated by the American Public a long time ago.

A Deputy Attorney General of the Department of Justice repeatedly told members of the House of Representatives that he did not know diddly-squat about the activities of those under him.

And even now, he is allowing those under him to drag their feet in producing the un-redacted documents pertaining to the DOJ/FBI’s Deep State Operation against Candidate Trump which President Trump has ordered to be released.

President Trump is absolutely correct. It is time to begin the process of restoring the System of Checks and Balances to the Three Branches of Government which our Founding Fathers so magnificently created and bequeathed to us.

Certain representatives of the Judicial Branch have decided that they outrank the Legislative and the Executive.

The Founders created all three branches to be servants of the American People.

My friend and fellow writer at SpartaReport.com, Fossten made an excellent point about this situation,

“You know how I know he (Rosenstein) wasn’t “joking”?

He signed the FISA Warrant!”

It’s time to re-introduce Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein to a concept personified by a statue, known as “Blind Justice”.

Mr. President, fire Rod Rosenstein.

Now.

Fire his boss and the remainder of the “Silent Coup” after the Republicans sweep the Midterm Elections.

FBI/DOJ’s “Media Leak Strategy” Just the Tip of the Iceberg

September 12, 2018

untitled (188)

FoxNews.com reports that

A top Republican congressman and fired FBI agent Peter Strzok’s lawyer traded scathing, no-holds-barred accusations of deliberate dishonesty on Tuesday, one day after newly unearthed text messages showed Strzok discussing a “media leak strategy” with the Justice Department in April 2017.

The texts were first outlined in a letter sent by Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein on Monday. In one of the messages, dated April 10, Strzok tells former FBI attorney Lisa Page, “I had literally just gone to find this phone to tell you I want to talk to you about media leak strategy with DOJ before you go.”

In a revised letter sent Tuesday, Meadows, who serves on the House Oversight Committee, writes that on April 22, Strzok texted that “article is out! Well done, Page.” It is unclear what article Strzok was referring to, or whether it was about the Russia case. In Meadows’ original letter, however, he claimed that exchange occurred on April 12 — one day after The Washington Post published a story titled, “FBI obtained FISA warrant to monitor former Trump adviser Carter Page.”

Meadows’ revised letter also includes a comment from Strzok to Page on April 12, in which Strzok suggests an article about Page’s “namesake” would soon come out. That was an apparent reference to Page, the former Trump adviser whom the FBI surveilled for months after obtaining a warrant from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court. During April 2017, there was widespread reporting about Page, his Russia contacts, the FBI’s interest in those contacts and the surveillance warrant that is supposed to remain secret. 

According to Strzok’s lawyer, Meadows wildly misinterpreted those texts when he told Rosenstein that they “should lead a reasonable person to question whether there was a sincere desire to investigate wrongdoing or to place derogatory information in the media to justify a continued probe.”

“The term ‘media leak strategy’ in Mr. Strzok’s text refers to a Department-wide initiative to detect and stop leaks to the media,” Aitan Goelman, Strzok’s attorney, said earlier Tuesday. “The president and his enablers are once again peddling unfounded conspiracy theories to mislead the American people.”

But Meadows made it clear Tuesday he was not buying that explanation.

“If Peter Strzok and his attorney expect people to believe Mr. Strzok didn’t make contact with various news outlets during his time at the FBI, after all the documents and evidence we’ve seen, they are trying to sell a work of fiction,” Meadows said. “The American people aren’t buying his misdirection. Furthermore, if in fact Mr. Strzok did lead an effort to ‘control leaks,’ as his attorney suggests, it’s worth mentioning that such an alleged effort was clearly a failure. It should raise questions whether there was a serious effort at all.”

Strzok, who was a leading investigator in both the Hillary Clinton and Russia probes, was fired in August after the DOJ inspector general excoriated him for a slew of anti-Trump text messages he’d sent on his FBI-issued phone, including one in which he said “we’ll stop” Trump from becoming president.

Carter Page has not been charged with any wrongdoing. Heavily redacted documents have since shown that a dossier written by ex-British spy Christopher Steele and funded by the Democratic National Committee and the Clinton campaign played a role in obtaining the FISA warrant to surveil him beginning in October 2016.

Documents also have shown that the FBI inaccurately reassured the FISA court on several instances that a Yahoo News article provided independent basis to surveil Page, when it also relied on Steele as its source.

In his original and revised letters, Meadows noted that The Post’s reporting improperly set off “a flurry of articles suggesting connections between President Trump and Russia.” 

At this point, if anyone believes a single work that comes out of the mouth of Peter Strzok or his lawyer, then they should come and see me. I have signed copies of the new book “How to Be a Socialist on $150,000,000” by Jim Carrey to sell them.

Of course, they were leaking to the media.

As I have chronicled, the Deep State Operation to take down Donald J. Trump began when he started campaigning for the Presidency. Why the heck would those responsible end it after he won the election and became the 45th President of the United States of America?

There is so much obvious stuff that we have found out about this operation, including things which seems odd on their own until you put 2 + 2 together.

For example, why did Barack Hussein Obama move into a house with his Girl Friday, Valerie Jarrett, just scant blocks from the White House, instead of leaving town like every other President has in the past?

Why did Special Counsel Robert Mueller hire 17 Democratic Donors as his Special Investigators?

Why has Mueller gone silent and Obama reappeared into the national spotlight with the Midterm Elections just a couple of months away?

Why have Robert Woodward and the New York Times published a book and an op ed using stories from “unnamed sources” as to how awful the Trump White House is right before the Midterms?

In my humble opinion, Congressman Meadows is exactly right.

Average Americans remain extremely skeptical concerning the actions taken against Trump by the Department of Justice and the FBI.

Americans between the coasts have always believed that Mueller and his “17 Angry Democrats” are nothing but a political lynch mob, tools of the Democratic Party.

And speaking of….Democrats ( you thought I was going to say “tools” didn’t you?) Former President Barack Hussein Obama was not well received at all by average Americans with his ego-driven diatribe against President Trump and the Economic Recovery which America is experiencing.

In summary, what I trying to say is what a lot of us have been thinking and saying for well over a year and a half:

The Democrats, in conjunction with Career Washington Bureaucrats working in various aspects of government, including the DOJ and the FBI, have been performing surveillance and working against Donald J. Trump, both when he was a candidate and throughout his Presidency. And, they were following orders from President Obama in order to secure the Presidency for Hillary Clinton.

As Obama’s Former Pastor, Reverend wright would say,

This whole Deep State Operation’s Chickeeens are coming home…to roost.

It’s time for President Trump to get the plunger and to drain this part of the Swamp.

Until He Comes,

11 House Reps Introduce Articles of Impeachment Against Rosenstein – Why It is About Time

July 26, 2018

ap-rod-rosenstein

FoxNews.com reports that

A group of 11 House Republicans introduced five articles of impeachment against Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein Wednesday evening.

The impeachment articles accuse Rosenstein of intentionally withholding documents and information from Congress, failure to comply with congressional subpoenas and abuse of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA).

It was not immediately clear whether the House of Representatives would consider the resolution before lawmakers begin the August recess Thursday afternoon. The House will reconvene Sept. 4.

The resolution states it will be “referred to the Committee,” meaning the Judiciary Committee, for further review. That language suggests the full House will not immediately consider the articles of impeachment.

The articles were introduced by Reps. Mark Meadows of North Carolina and Jim Jordan of Ohio, the chairman and a prominent member of the conservative House Freedom Caucus.

In one article of impeachment, Rosenstein is accused of improperly signing off on the FISA surveillance warrant application against ex-Trump aide Carter Page.

…The application heavily relied on the infamous Steele Dossier, which was funded by the Clinton campaign and the DNC and contained unverified, salacious allegations against Trump.

“Under Mr. Rosenstein’s supervision, the Department of Justice and FBI intentionally obfuscated the fact the dossier was originally a political opposition research document before the FISC [Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court],” the articles of impeachment state.

They continue: “As Deputy Attorney General, Mr. Rosenstein has failed in his responsibility for the proper authorization of searches under FISA, and his conduct related to the surveillance of American citizens working on the Trump campaign has permanently undermined both public and congressional confidence in significant counterintelligence program processes.”

The documents also charge that Rosenstein has an impermissible conflict of interest.

“His conduct in authorizing the FISA surveillance at issue in the joint congressional investigation makes him a fact witness central to the ongoing investigation of potential FISA abuse,” the articles state. “Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein’s failure to recuse himself in light of this inherent conflict of interest and failure to recommend the appointment of a second Special Counsel constitute dereliction of duty.”

Rosenstein named Special Counsel Robert Mueller to lead the Trump-Russia probe after Rosenstein’s boss, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, recused himself from the investigation because of Sessions’ own role in the Trump campaign.

Gentle readers, do you remember last month when Rosenstein appeared before the House Judiciary Committee?

CNSNews.com reported at the time that

In response to two specific questions–did the Department of Justice or the FBI spy on the Trump campaign, and did anyone in the Obama administration direct confidential informants to make contact with the campaign–Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein told the House Judiciary Committee on Thursday he was “not permitted to discuss any classified information.”

“Let me ask you this,” Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) asked Rosenstein.

“What did the DOJ or FBI do in terms of collecting information, spying or surveillance on the Trump campaign, be it via (FBI informant) Stefan Halper, or anybody else working on behalf of the agencies?” DeSantis asked Rosenstein.

“As you know, Congressman, I’m not permitted to discuss any classified information in an open setting, but I can assure you, we’re working with oversight committees and we’re producing all relevant evidence to allow them to answer this question,” Rosenstein replied.

DeSantis again: “Let me ask you this then: Did the Obama administration, anybody in the administration, direct anybody — Halper or anybody else — to make contact with anyone associated with the Trump campaign?

“As I said Congressman, I appreciate, obviously, the — I understand your interest, but I’m not permitted to discuss classified information,” Rosenstein said again.

“Well, we want the documents, and I know we’re in a back and forth on that,” DeSantis said. “But the American people need to know, were the counterintelligence powers of the Obama administration unleashed against Trump’s campaign — if that was done, was it done inappropriate?”

The smugness of Deputy Attorney General of the Department of Justice Rod Rosenstein in answering the Committee’s questions did not go unnoticed by the Congressional Representatives in attendance and average Americans, who were watching the proceedings at home.

As a matter of fact, those Representatives who drew up those articles of Impeachment and average Americans have a lot in common. We all remain both disgusted and concerned about a Deputy Attorney General of the DOJ acting as if it was beneath him to answer questions which Congress and the American People have a right to know concerning the attempted interference in the 2016 Presidential Election by Deep State Operatives within our own government.

The Hierarchy of the DOJ, like our municipal police organizations around the nation, are supposed to “serve and protect” the citizens of our great country.

The silly games which Rosenstein and the Hierarchy of the FBI and the Special Counsel which he appointed have been playing for the entirety of the Trump Presidency became old, stale, and unappreciated by the American Public a long time ago.

A Deputy Attorney General of the Department of Justice has repeatedly told members of the House of Representatives that he did not know diddly-squat about the activities of those under him.

If you buy that, I would like to talk to you about purchasing a lifetime membership in the Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez Center for Rational Thought.

It is time to begin the process of restoring the System of Checks and Balances to the Three Branches of Government which our Founding Fathers so magnificently created and bequeathed to us.

Certain representatives of the Judicial Branch have decided that they outrank the Legislative and the Executive.

The Founders created all three branches to be servants of the American People.

Rosenstein Refuses to Answer Because of “Classified Information”…Classified Why?

June 29, 2018

wray-rosenstein-whisper-ap-ps-180628_hpMain_4x3_992

We are sick and tired of the DOJ giving Congress the runaround. As a separate branch of government, we have a right to get information. – Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH)

CNSNews.com reports that

In response to two specific questions–did the Department of Justice or the FBI spy on the Trump campaign, and did anyone in the Obama administration direct confidential informants to make contact with the campaign–Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein told the House Judiciary Committee on Thursday he was “not permitted to discuss any classified information.”

“Let me ask you this,” Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) asked Rosenstein.

“What did the DOJ or FBI do in terms of collecting information, spying or surveillance on the Trump campaign, be it via (FBI informant) Stefan Halper, or anybody else working on behalf of the agencies?” DeSantis asked Rosenstein.

“Well, we want the documents, and I know we’re in a back and forth on that,” DeSantis said. “But the American people need to know, were the counterintelligence powers of the Obama administration unleashed against Trump’s campaign — if that was done, was it done inappropriate?”

Strzok text message: ‘We’ll stop it’

One of the most incriminating text messages sent by FBI agent Peter Strzok to his lover Lisa Page was not made public until the Justice Department’s inspector general released his report on June 14.

But Rosenstein told the committee, “I want to assure you and the American people, we’re not withholding anything embarrassing.”

The FBI did not find the message, but the inspector general did, Rep. DeSantis noted.

“And so we’re asking you to produce stuff, and obviously we’re expecting a good faith effort,” DeSantis told Rosenstein. “You guys didn’t find it, and maybe someone else deleted it or something happened before you guys, but he was able to find it, you didn’t. So it was very disappointing to see that text message there.”

The text message was a response to FBI attorney Lisa Page, who wanted reassurance that Trump would never become president. Strzok replied, “No. No, he’s not. We’ll stop it.”

What “classified information”?

Classified because of what?

That it incriminates and illuminates the Deep State Democratic Operatives in the DOJ and FBI even further as regards their sanctioned operation to keep Donald J. Trump from becoming president?

At this point we can only speculate, because, as I have previously written, the DOJ and the FBI are purposefully dragging their feet in releasing the documents which the House of Representatives has requested.

Call me paranoid, but Dep. Director Rosenstein’s smugness in answering the tough questions thrown at him yesterday seemed to be the reaction of a professional bureaucrat, not someone interested in “Truth, Justice, and the American Way” to borrow a phrase from the opening of the “Superman” Television Series which I used to watch with my Daddy at 6:00 a.m. on Saturday mornings.

But, I digress…

I wonder what sort of incriminating revelations are hiding in the documents which they have not handed over, yet?

Evidence about Hillary Clinton’s E-mailGate and FoundationGate?

Hillary’s BFF Huma Abedin passing classified information to her relatives in the Muslim Brotherhood?

Information about the whole FISA Dossier Fiasco?

Conversations between the DOJ and FBI Hierarchy and the 44th President of the United States of America, Barack Hussein Obama, about the surveillance activities involving the Trump Campaign?

Smoochy-smoochy e-mails between Strzok and Page?

A picture of J. Edgar Hoover in a dress?

Just kidding. (Try to un-see that.)

As Trey Gowdy boldly said yesterday, it is time for the DOJ and FBI to produce the documents and time for Mueller to end his dog and pony show designed for no other purpose than to bring down the President of the United States of American and to overturn the will of the American People.

Think about this: A Deputy Director of the FBI basically told members of the House of Representatives that he did not know diddly-squat about the activities of those under him.

If you believe that, you might be interested in attending the new Maxine Waters School of Grace and Charm.

This country is indeed being purposefully divided by those behind all of these distractions designed to disrupt the presidency of Donald J. Trump.

It is time to call a halt to them and to get on with the business of Making America Great Again.

Trump Wants Strzok Hearing Shown Live – Why That is a Great Idea

June 26, 2018

180620195251-02-minnesota-trump-rally-0620-screengrab-super-tease

They are frustrated and angry. You put it all together with the fact that everything they believe in fails and is failing and has failed, and they are beside themselves. They are never happy to begin with, and this is just piling more shocking disappointment and rage on top of itself. Barack Obama politicized and weaponized the government while in office. He tried to fix the election in 2016. He tried to choose his successor. Bernie Sanders and Trump were the victims, and they both — well, Trump especially — not only survived and triumphed, but has illustrated the attempts made by the Obama administration.He’s exposed the fraud everywhere on the left. – Rush Limbaugh, 6/25/18

FoxNews.com reports that

President Trump blasted FBI agent Peter Strzok on Monday night, arguing that the hearing for the agent known for his anti-Trump text messages should be “shown to the public on live television.” 
 
“The hearing of Peter Strzok and the other hating frauds at the FBI & DOJ should be shown to the public on live television, not a closed-door hearing that nobody will see,” the president tweeted. “We should expose these people for what they are – there should be total transparency!”

Trump’s comments came just days before Strzok is set to testify before the House Judiciary Committee. Strzok apparently was willing to go before Congress, but the committee issued the order for the June 27 appearance because he wouldn’t confirm a specific date to appear, Fox News has learned.

Strzok was involved in special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation before he was removed following the revelation of several anti-Trump text messages with his bureau colleague and lover, Lisa Page.

Justice Department Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz’s report on the Clinton email investigation, released earlier this month, said Page texted Strzok in August 2016, prior to then-candidate Donald Trump’s election night win, saying “[Trump’s] not ever going to become president, right? Right?!”

“No. No he won’t. We’ll stop it,” Strzok responded.

Earlier Monday night, Trump also criticized Virginia Democratic Sen. Mark Warner following reports that Warner, while allegedly drinking alcohol at a retreat on Martha’s Vineyard, joked to donors that he might reveal sensitive information known only to him and Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

“If you get me one more glass of wine, I’ll tell you stuff only Bob Mueller and I know. If you think you’ve seen wild stuff so far, buckle up. It’s going to be a wild couple of months,” he reportedly said jokingly.

“Why is Senator Mark Warner (D-VA), perhaps in a near drunken state, claiming he has information that only he and Bob Mueller, the leader of the 13 Angry Democrats on a Witch Hunt, knows,” Trump questioned. “Isn’t this highly illegal. Is it being investigated?”

Warner, the ranking Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, was at a dinner for more than 100 guests as part of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee’s (DSCC) annual Majority Trust retreat, Politico reported.

The is precedence for President Trump’s suggestion.

On April 22, 1954, television history was made as….

Broadcast “gavel to gavel” on the ABC and DuMont networks from 22 April to 17 June 1954, the Army-McCarthy hearings were the first nationally televised congressional inquiry and a landmark in the emergent nexus between television and American politics. Though the Kefauver Crime Committee hearings of March 1951 can claim priority as a congressional TV show, and subsequent political spectacles (the Watergate hearings, The Iran Contra hearings, The Thomas-Hill hearings) would rivet the attention of later generations of televiewers, the Army-McCarthy hearings remain the genre prototype for sheer theatricality and narrative unity.

…Throughout the thirty-six days of hearings, 188 hours of broadcast time were given over to telecasts originating from the Senate Caucus Room. The network “feed” came courtesy of the facilities of ABC’s Washington, D.C. affiliate, WMAL-TV. 

Of course, nowadays, the cable news networks, especially Fox News, carry Congressional Hearings live on a fairly regular basis.

However, what Trump is suggesting is wall-to-wall coverage of the weasel Strzok’s testimony, in order to educate average Americans as to just how corrupt the Hierarchy at the DOJ and FBI were and to some extent, still are.

From FoundationGate to SpyGate to Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his gang of “13 angry Democrats” investigating Trump and his campaign staff for something that never happened, this whole bizarre Three Ring Circus of Political Shenanigans reeks so badly of Democrat Corruption that the smell has wafted to all 50 states.

A smell so horrible that it must be of a psychogenic nature because it has turned the Democrats into non-thinking violent zombies who seem to have forgotten how our system of government works.

Yes, gentle readers, the Democrats ARE smelling what they are shoveling. And, they’re buying it hook, line, and sinker.

Since sunlight is still the best disinfectant, I wholeheartedly agree with President Trump.  These hearings featuring Strzok, Rosenstein, and all of the rest of the Professional Bureaucrats who have worked behind the scenes to usurp to right of Americans to choose our president and then, to allow that president to fulfill his Campaign Promises, need wall-to-wall coverage on several channels, so that average Americans can watch the cockroaches being exposed as the “kitchen light” gets turned on.

Average Americans have not been buying the hatred and misery which the Democrats have been selling for sometime now.

Current Political Polls show a Red WAVE coming in the Mid-Term Elections, instead on the Blue Wave that the Demo and their Vanguard, the Main Stream Media have been erroneously predicting.

It’s time for the Democrats to put up or shut up or that hole that they continue to dig for themselves will have a tombstone at one end of it saying,

Here lies the Democratic Party…Consumed By Their Own Hatred.”

DOJ Complying with House Subpoena on “FoundationGate” and “SpyGate” Slowly…on Purpose

June 24, 2018

untitled-188

There is no question that this team at the FBI — Comey and Strzok and McCabe — were doing everything they can to shield and protect Hillary and to get her elected and to damage Donald Trump to prevent him from getting elected. And after he did, to destroy his transition and then his presidency. We don’t need investigations! All we need is the daily news. But nothing can be done without the official investigation, you see? Which slows things down and people lose their passion — and that’s by design. – Rush Limbaugh 6/20/18

FoxNews.com reports that

The Justice Department this week gave House Republicans some of the documents they seek related to the Russia election-meddling investigation and Hillary Clinton email probe — after lawmakers threatened to hold officials in contempt for stonewalling.

House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., said on “Fox News Sunday” that House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., had warned that “there’s going to be action on the floor of the House this week if FBI and DOJ do not comply with our subpoena request.”

The House Judiciary Committee and House Intelligence Committee had requested more than a million documents from the FBI and DOJ related to the Clinton investigation and surveillance of members of the Trump campaign during the 2016 presidential campaign. While some documents had been produced, the committees have been pushing the DOJ for months to fully comply with the subpoenas.

But a spokesperson for Ryan told The Associated Press on Saturday that the department had partially complied with the subpoenas and had turned over more than a thousand new documents.

“Our efforts have resulted in the committees finally getting access to information that was sought months ago, but some important requests remain to be completed,” the spokesperson, AshLee Strong, said in a statement Saturday. 

“Additional time has been requested for the outstanding items, and based on our understanding of the process we believe that request is reasonable. We expect the department to meet its full obligations to the two committees.”

However, House Freedom Caucus Chair Mark Meadows, R-S.C., pushed back, saying that the documents handed over relating to the subpoena by the Judiciary Committee are just a fragment of what was subpoenaed. He told Fox News that the additional 1,400 documents produced this week related to just one section of the subpoena: FBI and DOJ officials’ requests to review surveillance records of the Trump campaign or Trump administration.

“This represents less than three percent of the potential universe of documents for that section,” Meadows, who sits on the House Oversight Committee, said. He said another section is only 67 percent complete, while no documents have been produced for another section related to surveillance of the Clinton Foundation

“Based on the current production rate, it would take them 1 1/2 years to comply,” he added.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., who has been a central figure in requesting the documents, was provided a classified letter about whether the FBI used “confidential human sources” before it started its investigation in Russia ties to the Trump campaign.

Republicans have targeted the circumstances as to how the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant was obtained to monitor Trump aide Carter Page and the possible use of an informant who spoke to members of Trump’s campaign. 

AP reported that the DOJ is also working to provide documents related to former British spy Christopher Steele, who was behind the lurid and unverified anti-Trump dossier, which Republicans say was used to obtain the FISA warrant.

The amount of information which the Department of Justice is trying to keep from the House Republicans is mind-blowing to think about. Just the information gathered about the Clinton Foundation and their Pay-For-Play Scandal will keep investigators busy for years, considering the number of countries who may have paid tribute to Former Secretary of State Clinton and “Bubba” in order to receive preferential treatment from the Queen of Mean in her Powerful Position within the Obama Administrations.

And, then there is the matter of the FISA Warrant and the Steele Dossier, both of which undoubtably will put both the DOJ and FBI Hierarchy at the time  between a rock and a hard place trying to explain their less-than-ethical behavior as concerns their spying on the Trump Campaign in an effort to keep him from becoming president.

Now, don’t get me wrong. the rank and file of the FBI is composed of many stellar, heroic agents, who love this country and work sacrificially every day, serving with honor.

The hierarchy, composed mainly of Professional Bureaucrats, is another matter.

Being political appointees holding political opinions, while carrying political obligations to a certain political party, never bodes well in a position of legal authority.

Add into that mix an extra-marital affair between these bureaucrats and, to paraphrase, “the affairs of mice and men (and agents) will indeed go awry”.

The Professional Bureaucrats in the DOJ and the FBI know that further investigation into the FISA Memo and the Steele Dossier will blow their clandestine operation against the candidacy and the presidency of Donald J. Trump wide open and put an end to the sham of an investigation into Trump’s “Russian Collusion” that never happened.

And, they simply cannot afford to have that happen.

That is why they have been dragging their feet in complying to the subpoena for the House.

Since the kinky days of J. Edgar Hoover, the hierarchy of the FBI have run clandestine investigations of public figures, both political and cultural leaders.

J. Edgar did it to hold onto his office and to have political leverage against his enemies, as he had skeletons in his own closet…and dresses, too.

But, I digress.

In this case however, the Hierarchy of both the Department of Justice and the FBI did it to circumvent the will of the American People and to install Hillary Clinton as the 45th President, thus protecting the status quo in the Halls of Power in Washington, DC.

And, despite all of their unfathomable behavior and the cover of a sitting president, they failed.

The Washington Bureaucratic Elite were beaten on November 8, 2016 were defeated by the very people whom they had daily been looking down their noses with contempt during the Obama Administration: average Americans…those of us who voted for “Citizen Statesman” Donald J. Trump.

And, I are sure, is what galls them the most.

…The clamor over the watchdog’s findings was the latest turn in the GOP’s increasingly hostile and preemptive offensive against Mueller’s expected report on the president’s conduct. And the furor is almost tailor-made for Trump, who throughout his career has clutched onto small details and controversy as weapons he uses to define his enemies and erode trust in institutions.

Particularly notable, from the perspective of Trump’s allies, was the searing criticism in the report reserved for the conduct of one of Trump’s most high-profile critics, former FBI director James Comey, as well as the revelation that lead FBI agent Peter Strzok had shown anti-Trump bias. “We’ll stop it,” Strzok wrote in a text message, referring to Trump’s presidential campaign.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said the report “reaffirmed the president’s suspicions about Comey’s conduct and about the political bias of some members of the FBI.”

On Capitol Hill, there was an outcry. Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., a Trump ally, said on Thursday he would support a new federal probe of Mueller’s special counsel investigation. “You’re going to need independent eyes,” he told reporters.

Democrats, as they have for months, sought to defend the sanctity of the special counsel’s inquiry. They said Mueller’s mission should not be attacked because FBI agents behaved inappropriately.

“None of this reflects on the special counsel’s work,” said Rep. Adam Schiff, Calif., ranking Democrat of the House Intelligence Committee.

Republicans, however, sought to use the report to tarnish investigators.

Since the Strzok text message had not been previously disclosed to Congress, a number of Republicans immediately asked whether the Justice Department had purposefully hidden that missive from them.

Republican Reps. Andy Biggs, Ariz., Matt Gaetz, Fla., Ron DeSantis, Fla., – all Trump supporters – sent the Justice Department a letter Thursday demanding that the inspector general turn over all previous reports to see if “people may have changed the report in a way that obfuscates your findings.”

So, what is the “mission of the Special Counsel and his “13 angry Democrats”, Rep. Schiff?

Wasn’t the Russia Probe formed to find evidence of Russian interference on behalf of the Trump Campaign in the 2016 Presidential Election?

Well, the House Investigative Committee has already ruled that there was no collusion.

And, Special Counsel Mueller has stated that President Trump is not a target in the investigation.

So, what is the purpose of the Special Council and his Lynch Mob’s continued existence?

Is it to find something…ANYTHING…with which to impeach the 45th President of the United States of America…simply because Americans in “Flyover Country” elected him as President instead of “The Chosen One II”, Hillary Clinton?

Or, is the purpose of the Investigation simply to provide enough interference so that Trump cannot fulfill his Campaign Promises and will be seen as a failed President, ensuring a Democratic Victory in 2020?

Well, considering the enormous success of his first 500 days in office, I think you’ve got about as much chance succeeding at ever of those as Rosie O’Donnell has of being on the front cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition (try unseeing that).

So, Rep. Shiff, considering that only a minority of Americans supported Mueller’s Investigation before the IG’s Report and one of his investigators is one of those FBI Agents singled out for possible legal consequences, and with the IG Report on the Russia Probe on the horizon, don’t you think that it is time for Special Counsel Mueller to “put up or shut up”?

Lord knows, us “rubes” out here in “Flyover Country” certainly do.

IG Report “Appearance of Bias”…Why Horowitz Was Soft on Comey

June 15, 2018

untitled (246).png

This could end up being the worst thing that could happen to the Democrats and their electoral chances. This is gonna rev people up and it’s gonna keep ’em involved and in the game as just another bit of evidence of why the swamp needs to be drained. Now, that’s a premature comment based on the fact that I haven’t read this whole thing yet. It’s kind of a prediction based on an “if” it contains what is said to be a soft cover-up. It may not be. – Rush Limbaugh, 6/14/18

Yesterday was a special day. Not only was it President Donald J. Trump’s 72nd birthday, but it was also the day that the long-awaited IG Report on the FBI’s handling of the Hillary Clinton E-mail Scandal was made public.

Per Gregg Re of FoxNews.com, the seven key takeaways from the FBI Inspector General’s report on the Hillary Clinton E-mail Scandal are:

1. New texts between FBI lovers Strzok and Page were ‘disappointing’ and cast a shadow over the integrity of the entire Clinton email probe.

2. Five unnamed FBI employees — including one lawyer who later worked on the Mueller probe — are under scrutiny for anti-Trump bias.

3. Investigators didn’t give a good reason for not pursuing laptops and cellphones belonging to Clinton’s senior aides.

4.  Despite Clinton connections, former Assistant Attorney General Peter Kadzik and former Deputy Director Andrew McCabe didn’t fully recuse themselves.

5. ‘Insubordinate’ Ex-FBI Director James Comey repeatedly violated policy and inaccurately described the legal situation surrounding Clinton’s emails.

6. Former Obama Attorney General Loretta Lynch made errors in judgment during the Clinton probe.

7. FBI agents’ actions surrounding the DOJ/FBI interview of Hillary Clinton were ‘inappropriate’ and created appearance of bias.

An “appearance of bias”?

Correction: a REALITY of bias.

There is a reason why Inspector General Horowitz was reticent to blatantly declare the existence of political bias in the upper echelon of the FBI:

As President Trump once stated, He is an “Obama Guy”.

Let’s look at the IG’s history.

  • He received his Juris Doctor from Harvard, where he was taught by the likes of upstanding individuals like Barney Franks.
  • Horowitz worked in DOJ from 1991 to 2002. In the early 1990s, he worked for former fired FBI Director Comey while the two of them were in the Southern District of New York.
  • He worked from 2002 to 2012 as a partner at Cadwalader, Wickersham, & Taft LLP, where he specialized in on white-collar defense, internal investigations, and regulatory compliance.
  • Horowitz was nominated by President Obama in July 2011 to be Inspector General of the DOJ.
  • He has been Inspector General since starting in 2012 under the Obama Administration.

Yes, gentle readers. He worked for Comey in the Southern District of New York.

That’s why he did not go after Comey as roughly as he could (or should) have.

And, as you read above, one of those who have been recommended for investigation, worked on Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Staff in the ongoing Russia Probe.

These “ties that bind” are most definitely not “blessed”.

They are corrupt.

As the rapidly escalating unraveling of the “Russia Probe” falsehood has demonstrated, the professional bureaucrats who served in the Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation in the Obama Administration were more interested in serving their bosses than in the cause of justice.

No only did they know of Hillary’s  cavalier treatment of top-secret e-mails, they also knew that she used the Clinton Foundation as her and Bubba’s very own “Laundromat”, “cleaning up” copious donations from foreign powers who sought favorable treatment from the State Department under Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

It is now very apparent that the corruption ran so deep in the Halls of Power during this time that they were all standing on their tiptoes trying to see above it.

It is also apparent that the DOJ and the FBI had no interest in investigating Hillary, as they were too busy playing footsie with Christopher Steele, Cody Shearer, and Richard Blumenthal in their mission to knock Donald J. Trump out of the Race for the Presidency.

While IG Horowitz did his best not to overtly condemn those in power in the FBI during the Obama Administration, he certainly did expose their corruption and political bias for all the world to see.

Until He Comes,

McCabe Sues DOJ Over Firing Just Before IG Report Release…Squirrel!

June 13, 2018

untitled (244)

Remember when you were a child and you did something wrong, like breaking your Mom’s favorite vase and when she asked you about it, you claimed that you did not know what happened?

A disgraced Former Deputy Director of the FBI and his lawyers are attempting the same strategy.

FoxNews.com reports that

Lawyers representing former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe filed a suit against the Justice Department and FBI on Tuesday, alleging that they wouldn’t give up files connected to his ouster.

McCabe’s lawyers claimed the Justice Department has denied access to the sought-after information out of concern that the documents could be later used against them, the lawsuit said. The suit also named the office of the DOJ inspector general.

“We don’t create or adjudicate under secret law or procedure,” David Snyder, a lawyer representing McCabe, told The Associated Press.

A representative for the Justice Department did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.

McCabe was fired in March just a few days shy of his retirement by Attorney General Jeff Sessions after it was reported that McCabe leaked a story to the press and later lied about it to former FBI Director James Comey.

His dismissal followed a report from the inspector general’s office earlier this year that concluded McCabe repeatedly deceived investigators. It referred the matter for potential criminal prosecution to the U.S. attorney’s office in Washington. McCabe has denied the allegations and said that when he thought his answers were being misunderstood during interviews with investigators, he tried to correct the record.

According to the lawsuit, McCabe’s firing came after “proceedings that violated federal law and departed from applicable administrative rules, standards, policies and procedures.” It noted that the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requires related documents to be produced for review.

“Defendants, however, have not disclosed those materials, whether proactively or upon request from Plaintiff as counsel for Mr. McCabe. That failure is contrary to law,” the lawsuit said. “It is incongruous with Defendants’ public, and repeated, representations to the effect that Mr. McCabe was dismissed from the FBI following an ‘extensive and fair investigation’ which was carried out ‘according to Department of Justice procedure.'”

McCabe’s lawyers signaled they wanted “immediate” access to documents including an inspector general manual outlining the guidelines governing the office and FBI policy guides on how disciplinary matters should be handled.

McCabe’s lawyers said they wanted the records as they “seek to vindicate Mr. McCabe’s rights and restore his good name,” and as they weighed whether to take more legal action.

Why should you have been fired, Former Deputy Director McCade?

Well, for starters a very revealing report was issued by the Department of Justice back in April, revealed that you misled investigators multiple times about your role in a news media leak. The report states that investigators

“…concluded that McCabe’s decision to confirm the existence of the CF Investigation through an anonymously sourced quote, recounting the content of a phone call with a senior Department official in a manner designed to advance his personal interests at the expense of Department leadership, was clearly not within the public interest exception.”

Also…

The DOJ’s April report found that McCabe authorized a leak to a Wall Street Journal reporter about the contents of a telephone call in August 2016.

“Among the purposes of the disclosure was to rebut a narrative that had been developing following a story in the WSJ on October 23, 2016, that questioned McCabe’s impartiality in overseeing FBI investigations involving [Clinton], and claimed that McCabe had ordered the termination of the [FBI’s Clinton Foundation investigation] due to Department of Justice pressure,” the report says.

In January, The Journal reported that McCabe knew of thousands of emails related to the Clinton investigation for at least a month before Comey told Congress about them. 

The day he was fired, Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a statement that “the FBI expects every employee to adhere to the highest standards of honesty, integrity, and accountability.” 

About that whole “integrity” thingy…

McCabe’s wife, Dr. Jill McCabe, ran for a Virginia State Senate seat in 2015. The political action committee for then-Virginia Governor McAuliffe, a Democrat and Clinton ally, donated $467,500 to her campaign, while the Virginia Democratic party gave $207,788, The Journal reported. Andrew McCabe was associate deputy director of the FBI at the time.

McCabe “played no role, attended no events, and did not participate in fundraising or support of any kind,” the FBI told The Journal in a statement. “Months after the completion of her campaign, then-Associate Deputy Director McCabe was promoted to Deputy, where, in that position, he assumed for the first time, an oversight role in the investigation into Secretary Clinton’s emails.”

Even with McAuliffe’s help, Dr. McCabe lost the election.

A Former Presidential Administration weaponized the FBI and DOJ for the purposes of not only spying on , but also sabotaging the Candidacy and Presidency of Donald J. Trump.

These Deep State Operatives, loyal to the Obama Administration and the Democratic Party, protected both President Barack Hussein Obama and Former Candidate Hillary Clinton, while using both the Bureaucratic and Electronic Tools at their disposal to somehow attempt to keep Trump from Becoming President.

Having failed at that, they invented the fictitious Russian Collusion Narrative as both a distraction and an impediment, in order to prevent President Trump from fulfilling his Campaign Promise to “Make America Great Again”.

This “Secret Society” within the FBI, ensconced in their Swamp of Bureaucracy, considered themselves, as most of the Liberal Elite do, to be smarter than everybody else, “untouchable”, and, evidently, above the laws of the nation which they had sworn to uphold and its citizens whom they had sworn to serve.

And now, with the Inspector General’s Report on the activities of the FBI concerning their involvement with Hillary Clinton’s “E-mailgate”, one of those whose activities will most certainly be included in said report is throwing a “Hail Mary” Legal Maneuver” in hopes of distracting from the fact that he knows exactly why he was fired.

Just as Former FBI Director James Comey published a book and went on a press tour in order to attempt to cover his duplicitous activities, so is Former Deputy Director McCabe attempting to change the public’s perception of him by acting “innocent”.

Considering how poorly Comey’s effort was received, one would have thought that McCabe would have learned a lesson.

It appears that he hasn’t.

However, he had better “study up on it”.

There will be a “Pop Quiz” tomorrow.

Until He Comes,

Strzok Played Bigger Role in Spygate than Previously Thought, Starting as Early as 2015

June 6, 2018

obamagate-600-li

FoxNews.com reports that

Peter Strzok, who was pulled off Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigative team last year, played a more central role than previously known in both the Russia and Hillary Clinton email probes, a lawmaker familiar with the matter told Fox News Tuesday.

The lawmaker’s assessment of Strzok’s role in both investigations was based on the most recent records and testimony, including a closed-door interview with FBI espionage chief Bill Priestap.

Priestap was interviewed Tuesday as part of an ongoing joint investigation by the House Judiciary and Oversight committees. Priestap was Strzok’s supervisor and oversaw both the Russia and Clinton investigations.

The lawmaker described Priestap as a very cooperative witness, but added that unanswered questions remained about Priestap’s overseas travel. One line of questioning Tuesday concerned a trip to London by Priestap in May 2016 and whether it was connected to the Russia case.

The trip was referenced by Strzok in a May 4, 2016 text message to FBI lawyer Lisa Page that said “Bill” would be “back from London next week.”

On Jan. 30 of that year, Strzok emailed Priestap and another FBI colleague expressing dismay about statements made by then-White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest claiming Clinton was not a target of the FBI probe into her private email server that she kept while secretary of state.

“Below not helpful,” Strzok wrote. “Certainly the WH is going to do whatever it wants, but there is a line they need to hold with regard to the appearance of non-interference.”

Strzok was reassigned to the FBI’s human resources division following revelations that he was romantically involved with Page and exchanged politically charged text messages. An FBI spokesperson told Fox News last month that Page had “resigned” to “pursue other opportunities.”

In addition to his work on the Mueller probe, Strzok was the lead agent on the Clinton email case known inside the bureau by the code name “Mid Year Exam” or MYE.

Lawmakers are scheduled to interview two other FBI officials later this month: Michael Steinbach, former head of the agency’s national security division; and Steinbach’s predecessor, John Giacalone. They are also expected to interview Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz, who is due to release a report on the FBI’s conduct in the Clinton investigation.

Late Tuesday, Trump claimed on Twitter that texts exist between Strzok and Page “referring to a counter-intelligence operation into the Trump Campaign dating way back to December, 2015.

All the pieces of “Spygate” are coming together at an accelerated rate.

And, as the spider web begins to unravel, there is one long thread that leads back to the 44th President of the United States of America, Barack Hussein Obama.

What continues to be conveniently overlooked, thanks to the Liberal Mass Freak-Out over the false narrative which I have dubbed the “Trump-Russia Collusion Fairy Tale”, is the fact that Barack Hussein Obama, the Former Petulant President Pantywaist himself, purposefully set up his Command Headquarters for his “Shadow Government” just a few blocks away from the White House, moving his “right-hand Iranian” Valerie Jarrett, into the house with him and “Mooch”.

 

While this Russian Collusion Probe has been throwing up a smoke screen like a clown car in a circus, Former President Barack Hussein Obama has been traveling overseas, meeting with foreign leaders as if he never left office. and, on top of that, he has been denigrating President Donald J. Trump and his Administration, undermining their Foreign Affairs Strategy.

Obama is desperately trying to ensure that his mission to turn the Greatest Country on the Face of the Earth into a Third World Socialist Paradise is not derailed by the unexpected loss of his hand-picked predecessor to a “Citizen Statesman”.

Additionally, you have a Former Nazi Sympathizer, now a Billionaire “Philanthropist”, funding Far Left Causes.

Faced with the reality of a splintered Democratic Party, which has alienated its base by moving to the Extreme Far Left of the Political Spectrum, this Former President , while still in office, decided to spy on the one candidate who might actually have a chance to beat his own party’s lousy candidate in a fair Presidential Election, through the means of obtaining an order to wire tap his offices.

Meanwhile, FBI officials on the 7th floor of FBI Headquarters went way beyond antipathy over the possible election of Donald J. Trump as the 45th President to anti-Trump plotting.

After all that political chicanery failed and the Citizen Statesman became the President, the Former Petulant President Pantywaist encouraged “rebellion”, as if the reality of a nation being torn asunder was some sort of “Star Wars” Movie, through the use of his “benefactor’s” (the Former Nazi Sympathizer) money in the funding of manufactured protests and a Media-Driven, Community -Organizing Assault, which included the Former President’s own “Organizing For America” Website, which took the cheesy name of “The Resistance”.

Not unlike the Bolsheviks of the Russian Revolution, this “Resistance”, with their willing accomplices in the Main Stream Media and within OUR Federal Government, launched a massive assault, through the dissemination of propaganda, manufactured protests, and Fake News, in order to somehow diminish the sitting President, in the hopes of regaining their lost power and continuing their mission, inspired by Karl Marx and Saul Alinsky.

Unfortunately for them, they underestimated the power of the New Media and the resiliency of the average American, here in the Heartland, who stopped believing their lies some time ago.

Meanwhile, Mueller and his cadre of Liberal SS Troops continued to undermine Trump through the continuance of their Dog and Pony Show, which they euphemistically called “an investigation”.

The more that Mueller and his troops insist that they are non-biased, the more information came forth that they have been and still are holdovers from the Clinton Administration, working as Deep State Operatives to do unto Trump as Brutus did unto Caesar.

They are proving themselves to be nothing but Trump Haters with no actual evidence of any kind that President Trump “colluded” with the Russians.

Meanwhile, the Democrats in Congress have yet to present any sort of bill which is beneficial to average Americans, weakening the momentum of their “Resistance” and strengthening the resolve of both the sitting President and the average Americans who voted him into office, against all odds, which yesterday led to Senate Leader Mitch McConnell cancelling their summer break in order to get Trump’s long-stalled nominees approved.

The only way for a happy ending to this real life spy novel is for the 45th President of the United States to fulfill another one of his campaign Promises and “Drain the Swamp”, i.e., the Justice Department and all of the “alphabet agencies” of disloyal embedded operatives left behind by previous Administrations, including Mueller and his “SS Troops”.

President Trump needs to get this accomplished as soon as possible so that he can continue the business of MAKING AMERICA GREAT AGAIN.

Until He Comes,
