Barr Appoints U.S. Attorney to Investigate Origins of Russia Investigation

May 14, 2019

Obama Spying on Trump

FoxNews.com reports that

Attorney General William Barr has appointed a U.S. attorney to examine the origins of the Russia investigation and determine if intelligence collection efforts targeting the Trump campaign were “lawful and appropriate,” a person familiar with the situation told Fox News on Monday evening.

John Durham, the U.S. attorney in Connecticut, will conduct the inquiry, the source said. The move comes as the Trump administration has pushed for answers on why federal authorities conducted the surveillance — as well as whether Democrats were the ones who improperly colluded with foreign actors.

Two sources told Fox News earlier today that Barr was “serious” and had assigned DOJ personnel to the probe. Durham is known as a “hard-charging, bulldog” prosecutor, Fox News is told.

Sources familiar with matter say the focus of the probe includes the pre-transition period — prior to Nov. 7, 2016 — including the use and initiation of informants, as well as potential Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) abuses.

An informant working for U.S. intelligence posed as a Cambridge University research assistant in September 2016 to try extracting any possible ties between the Trump campaign and Russia from George Papadopoulos, then a Trump foreign policy adviser, it emerged earlier this month. Papadopoulos told Fox News the informant tried to “seduce” him as part of the “bizarre” episode.

Durham previously has investigated law enforcement corruption, the destruction of CIA videotapes and the Boston FBI office’s relationship with mobsters. He is set to continue to serve as the chief federal prosecutor in Connecticut.

Durham’s new review would exist alongside the ongoing probe by DOJ Inspector General (IG) Michael Horowitz, who is continuing to review potential surveillance abuses by the FBI — an investigation that began last March and that Fox News is told is nearing completion.

You’ve heard the old expression “What goes around comes around”?

Well, it’s coming around.

And, about time.

Average Americans here in the Heartland have had to endure over 2 years of whining, protesting, innuendo, and downright lies from the Main Stream Media and their masters, the politicians within the Far Left Democratic Party over the ramifications of baseless accusations made against President Donald J. Trump.

All this time, everything pertaining to the entire “Russian Collusion” Fairy Tale has been nothing but obfuscation and obstruction, meant to protect those responsible who attempted and failed to interfere with the right of Americans to choose whom we want to be our president.

It was not Russians who were interfering and sublimating our Constitutional Right to vote…it was Americans….Americans working within the Administration of Former President Barack Hussein Obama.

And now, Americans who are supposed to be serving the citizenry, instead of themselves, are desperately attempting to keep their campaign of obfuscation and obstruction going by issuing subpoenas designed to delay the truth of the whole situation from coming out.

Why do you think that the House Democrats have been brutally attacking Attorney General Barr, threatening him with everything from subpoenas to arrest?

Why do you think that they’re still attempting to go after the President’s tax returns?

The desperation of the Democrats to keep this investigation from beginning tells me that they know that the trail of wrongdoing will lead all the way to Cabinet Level and above in the previous Administration.

“Spygate” is about to rip right open and it will turn out to be scandal of such epic proportions that a Dem will not sit in the Oval Office for several Presidential Elections.

Spygate will turn out to be a tale of treasonous sedition of such magnitude that it will make what happened at the Ford Theater and the Watergate Hotel pale in comparison.

Just watch the behavior of the Congressional Democrats to this news.

That will tell you all you need to know.

Spygate: What Obama’s U.S. Senate Campaign and Spying on the Trump Campaign Have in Common

April 12, 2019

obama-and-spygate-fbi-team

A lot of people who voted for Barack Obama expected and were led to expect something new in politics: a new tone of political discourse in Washington. And I think – I think they’re disappointed, because Barack Obama is not a new kind of politician. In fact, he’s an old Chicago politician. – Bernard Goldberg

FoxNews.com reports that

Corey Lewandowski, President Donald Trump’s former campaign manager, said Trump thinks former President Barack Obama was “100 percent” involved in spying on his 2016 presidential campaign.

“He (Trump) absolutely thinks that this went directly to the top of the previous administration,” said Lewandowski on “Fox & Friends” Thursday. “There is no way an opportunity like this to spy on a political opponent was not vetted at the highest levels of the government, whether it was Susan Rice or the Deputy National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes or Barack Obama himself. Somebody sanctioned this. His Department of Justice filed an application to spy on guys like Carter page, Corey Lewandowski, Jared Kushner, Ivanka Trump, and everybody else at the campaign because they didn’t like our politics.”

He added: “We’re American citizens. We fought for what we believed in. If the criteria is, ‘We don’t like your politics, we can spy on you,’ guess what, the Democrats better be very concerned.”

There is a very good reason for President Trump to believe what he does: Obama’s history of Chicago Style Political Dirty Tricks.

Several years ago, during his presidency, I wrote an unofficial biography of Barack Hussein Obama titled “The Great Disconnect: The Whole, Ugly Truth About Barack Hussein Obama”. Here is an excerpt which is pertinent to the above article.

In 2004, Illinois State Senator Barack Hussein Obama (mm mmm mmmm) decided to run for The United States Senate.

In order to have a successful Senatorial campaign, Scooter had to secure tremendous financial backing and be the recipient of astute political mentoring. No problem.

It is now very well-known that George Soros, evil genius, major Democratic Party donor and anti-Israel crusader, has been a generous contributor to Barack Obama. However, not too many people know that a loophole in McCain-Feingold allowed Soros and his family members to be extremely generous in their support of Obama’s 2004 Senatorial campaign.

Obama had to run against Blair Hull in the primary and then Jack Ryan in the general (both multi-millionaires). Obama received huge donations from individuals, due to so-called “millionaires exception.” Usually, individuals are limited to giving $2300 to candidates in federal elections, but if the candidates are running against millionaires, these limits do not apply and candidates are allowed to receive up to $12,000 from a single individual. Soros and his family gave Barack Obama $60,000. This does not count the money that Soros funneled to so-called 527 groups (Moveon.org, for example) that have also been politically active; nor does it include money that Soros raised from tapping a network of friends, business associates, and employees.

Besides garnering unlimited campaign funds, as the campaigns entered their closing rounds, the news ”happened to be” leaked to media outlets that both Hull and Ryan had “personal scandals” in their past. The timely release of this news wiped out both of their campaigns, leading to an easy victory for Obama in the primary and then in the general election.

The New York Times Magazine revealed that David Axelrod, Obama’s chief political and media adviser, may well have been behind the leak of the story that doomed the Hull candidacy as the primary reached its home stretch. I’m shocked.

As he has shown over the years, Axelrod was right at home operating in this gray area, part idealist, part hired muscle. One can not bring up Axelrod’s name in certain circles in Chicago without the matter of the Blair Hull divorce papers coming up. Approaching the 2004 Senate primary, it was clear that it was a two-man race: the millionaire liberal, Hull, leading in the polls, and Obama, who was the figurehead of an impressive grass-roots campaign. One month before the vote, The Chicago Tribune “just happened” to reveal, at the end of a long profile of Hull, that during a divorce proceeding, Hull’s second wife filed for an order of protection. This revelation proceeded to erupt into a full-fledged scandal. This scandal destroyed Hull’s campaign and handed Obama an easy primary victory.

The Tribune reporter who wrote the story later admitted in print that the Obama camp had “worked aggressively behind the scenes” to push the story. However, a lot of folks in Chicago believe that Axelrod leaked the initial story. They will tell you that before signing on with Obama, Axelrod interviewed with Hull. They also point out that Obama’s TV ad campaign just happened to start at almost the same time. Axelrod swears up and down that “we had nothing to do with it” and that the campaign’s television ad schedule was in the works for a long time.

Axlerod’s explanation?

An aura grows up around you, and people assume everything emanates from you.

After Obama won the Primary, he was invited to deliver a speech at the 2004 Democratic Convention on July 27th in Boston, Massachusetts.

As the result of the now-legendary speech, Out of Many, One, Obama rose to national prominence, and his speech is regarded by Liberal pundits as one of the great political statements of the 21st century. This speech thrust Obama into the national spotlight, and sycophants crowned him the new political prince of the Liberal Elite.

And, that led to an 8 year long American Nightmare, the Obama Presidency.

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 the case of “Spygate” 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.

President Trump is right. Sitting President Barack Hussein Obama knew every detail of the Deep State Operation to spy on his Presidential Campaign and when that failed, to sabotage his presidency.

He had to.

He was the boss of all those who were involved in it.

And, he had a “legacy” to protect.

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

The Washington Bureaucratic Elite were beaten on November 8, 2016 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, that I am sure, is what galls them the most.

All of those involved, including Former President Barack Hussein Obama, must be brought to justice and must face the consequences of their Seditious Conspiracy.

SpyGate: Barr Backlash…Methinks the Democrats Doth Protest Too Much

April 11, 2019

democrats-fume-william-barr-testimony-mueller-report

FoxNews.com reports that

Prominent Democrats lined up to hammer Attorney General Bill Barr for testifying Wednesday that federal authorities had spied on the Trump campaign in 2016, with one top House Democrat charging that Barr is not acting “in the best interest of the DOJ or the country.”

“I think spying did occur,” Barr said during the explosive hearing before a Senate Appropriations subcommittee. “The question is whether it was adequately predicated. …Spying on a political campaign is a big deal.”

Barr later clarified in the hearing: “I am not saying that improper surveillance occurred; I’m saying that I am concerned about it and looking into it, that’s all.”

Despite mounting evidence that the FBI pursued an array of efforts to gather intelligence from within the Trump campaign — and the fact that the FBI successfully pursued warrants to surveil a former Trump aide in 2016 — House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md., told Fox News that Barr’s loyalties were compromised.

“He is acting as an employee of the president,” Hoyer said. “I believe the Attorney General believes he needs to protect the president of the United States.”

Added House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., in an interview with the Associated Press: “I don’t trust Barr, I trust Mueller.” And Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., accused Barr on Twitter of “peddling conspiracy theories.”

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., added in a statement that Barr “should not casually suggest that those under his purview engaged in ‘spying’ on a political campaign.”

“This type of partisan talking point may please Donald Trump, who rails against a ‘deep state coup,'” Schiff said, “but it also strikes another destructive blow to our democratic institutions. The hardworking men and women at the DOJ and FBI deserve better.”

Barr’s comments, and the ensuing semantic hullabaloo, followed a new report that the Justice Department’s internal watchdog is scrutinizing the role of an FBI informant who contacted members of the Trump campaign during the 2016 election, as part of a broader review of the early stages of the Russia investigation.

The New York Times reported that Justice Department Inspector General (IG) Michael Horowitz is looking into informant Stefan Halper’s work during the Russia probe, as well as his work with the FBI prior to the start of that probe.

Trump, for his part, has vowed to release surveillance warrant applications used to monitor his former aide, Carter Page, beginning in October 2016. The FBI’s partisan sources in those applications have come under scrutiny, and FBI text messages obtained by Fox News show high-level concerns at the DOJ as to the credibility of sources presented to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court.

Page was never charged with any wrongdoing.

A separate DOJ IG investigation into potential FISA abuses by the FBI, which is expected to look at whether the bureau improperly presented misleading sources or withheld exculpatory information in its presentations to the FISA court, is ongoing. Barr said that review is likely to be completed by May or June.

Working late the last couple of days, I was able to watch some of the two House Committee Hearings featuring Attorney General William Barr.

The man showed exceptional grace under fire, as the Congressional Democrats tore into him with questions concerning the Mueller Report, instead of questions pertaining to the subjects of the two hearings.

AG Barr came out of the meetings as a shining example of professionalism, while the Democrats came off looking as if they were all doing impersonations of Humphrey Bogart playing Captain Queeg in “The Cain Mutiny” living out his obsession of the missing strawberries.

On Monday, Barr announced that he was going to put together a team to investigate the reported surveillance by the FBI on the Trump Campaign.

As the above article reports, Barr said something yesterday that made the Democrats absolutely lose their sh…err…minds.:

“I think spying…did occur.”

From those involved in local law enforcement to Interpol, they will all tell you that those who overreact to an investigation usually are the ones who have something to hide.

The Democrats are overreacting.

They should be worried.

The key to the whole Deep State Operation may lie in Inspector General Horowitz’ Report on Stefan Halper.

Who is he?

To call Stefan Halper a “Washington Insider” and a member of “The Deep State” is an understatement.

This guy’s curriculum vitae reads like a Who’s Who of the American Political Scene from the Reagan Years until now.

According to The Institute for World Politics, he is a Research Professor…

From 2001 to the present:, he has been employed at Cambridge University as a Professor in the Department of Politics and International Studies where he also serves as Director of American Studies.

His work in the field of Politics is a lot more interesting that his accomplishments in Academia

Halper served in the White House (1971-1977) during the Nixon and Ford Administrations.

1971-1973 White House Domestic Council;
1973-74 White House Office of Management and Budge. Assist. Director, Management and Evaluation Division
1974- January 20, 1977 White House Office of the Chief of Staff. Assistant to the Chief of Staff . (responsibilities included summary and analysis of foreign developments and security issues)
1977-79 Legislative Assistant to Senator William Roth (R-Del.) and Special Counsel to the Joint Economic Committee.
1979-80  National Director, Policy Development. George H.W. Bush. Presidential campaign
1980  National Director, Policy Coordination, Reagan-Bush 1980 (presidential campaign)
1981-1984 Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Politico-Military Affairs.
(Portfolio included China-US relations, Taiwan, non-proliferation, technology transfer, unconventional warfare.)
1984-1990 Chairman and majority shareholder:

The Palmer National Bank, Washington, D.C.
The National Bank of Northern Virginia, Leesburg, Va.
The George Washington National Bank, Alexandria, Va.
1990-2000 Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Halper, Roosevelt and Brown. 

1984-2001 Senior Advisor to the Department of Defense and a Senior Advisor to the Department of Justice.

“[Stephen] Halper, who assisted the FBI in the Russia investigation, appears to also have significant ties to the Russian government, as well as sources connected directly to President Vladimir Putin.” Now, this is new.  Halper is part of the MI6 bunch in the U.K. that partnered with the FBI and agents from Harvard and Yale.  This is the Oxford-Cambridge, Harvard-Yale connection with the intelligence apparatus of both countries.  What it all means here so that Halper just another link from the Clinton campaign to the Russians in creating all of this phony baloney, plastic banana, good-time rock ‘n’ roll stuff on Trump, including the dossier. – Rush Limbaugh 8/28/18

With a list of accomplishments like those above, and the work he did for the Obama Administration’s Department of Defense, Halper made the perfect “mole” to be embedded in the Trump Presidential Campaign. And as Rush said in the quote above, Harper is another link tying the Russian Collusion Fairy Tale, the Clintons, and the rest of the phony FISA Dossier-related stuff all together.

This “contractor” evidently pulled a lot of weight in the previous Administration.

So, what does all of this mean?

It means that the Federal Bureau of Investigation, with the Department of Justice and President Obama “read in”, embedded a spy in the opposition party’s Presidential Campaign in order to sabotage their operations, thus insuring the victory of his hand-picked successor and retaining the seat of power for his political party. Of course, according to the raving Liberals at the New York Times, that was done to “protect” Trump.

And, if you buy that, I have stock in the Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez School of Economics to sell you.

Obama and his “Deep State” Operatives made Nixon look like an amateur.

Grab the popcorn.

Things are about to get interesting.

Manafort/Cohen/Mueller…It’s All Still Just About Hillary Losing

August 23, 2018

cohen-trump

The one thing that hasn’t changed here, the one thing that all of this is about is forcing Donald Trump out of office because the Democrats lost an election. There are no crimes that have occurred here that involve the president of the United States starting with Russian collusion, moving on to obstruction of justice, and even this stuff now with the porn star, Stormy Daniels, Kara McDougal, and the stuff with Paul Manafort, none of it, none of it is going to result in criminal charges against Donald Trump. None of is gonna result in high crimes and misdemeanors.What it’s all gonna lead to is the forthcoming blistering report from the special counsel, Robert Mueller, who remains blind to the actual crimes that have taken place in this entire sordid story. There is clearly now a double standard, a dual system of justice at the highest levels of our Department of Justice. You can see it in the way the DOJ and the FBI exonerated the Democrat presidential candidate when real crimes were taking place for years and years right under their noses, crimes they perhaps even participated in.

Those crimes, because they involved the Democrat nominee, were exonerated. The Democrat nominee herself was exonerated. You go to the Trump campaign, the Republican, the opponent, where there aren’t any crimes, there wasn’t any collusion with Russia, there hasn’t been any obstruction of justice, and yet this is where the allegation of crimes is occurring? And it’s occurring with people who are peripheral to the original charge of all this — Russian collusion, stealing the election?

What is actually happening now is the losers of the election attempting to steal it back. And that’s what all of this yesterday means, it’s why it all happened, and it is what it continues to add up to. The people who lost the election simply can’t accept it and are doing everything they can to overturn that election result. – Rush Limbaugh, 8/22/18

Rush is exactly right.

Did you pay any attention to the Democratic Talking Points being spewed out on all of the cable News Channels yesterday?

The Democrats and their Propaganda Arm, the Main Stream Media, were doing everything they possibly could to drive President Trump out of office, which, if you step back and look at it, as Rush says, is the same thing that they have been doing since before Trump was even inaugurated.

The Liberal Pundits are desperately attempting to compare what is going on to Watergate and are attempting to somehow, someway make whatever they are accusing Trump of doing into some sort of impeachable offense.

Where were these Paragons of Virtue when Hillary Clinton was sharing top secret e-mails on a private server while she was running a pay-for-play scheme out of the Clinton Foundation, selling access to foreign countries while she was Secretary of State under Barack Hussein Obama (mm mmm mmmm)?

Why aren’t they investigating “Spygate” and the Clinton-funded FISA Dossier, including the involvement of Clintonistas Cody Shearer and Richard Blumenthal?

Regarding Watergate, the only tape recording going on was that of Michael Cohen’s and that was an abuse of Attorney-Client Privilege.

In this American’s opinion, everything that the Democrats, their Deep State Operatives, and Special Counsel Mueller and his “17 Angry Democrats” have accomplished by all of their efforts to bring down President Donald J. Trump is to cause me to support him that much more.

This all smells like the sort of dirty political “shenanigans” that Sam “Mooney” Giancana and the Chicago Branch of the Mafia used to use when they could not overtly “take out” a politician who would not “play along” with their wishes.

In case you did not know, “Mooney” and the “Boys” delivered Illinois for John F. Kennedy in the 1960 President Election, supposedly after Kennedy Supporter Frank Sinatra asked him to.

But, I digress.

As long as Mueller is allowed to operate outside of the scope of his original mission, he will continue to interfere in the Presidency of Donald J. Trump on behalf of “The Resistance”.

If the President does wait until after the Midterms to relieve Mueller and the “17 Angry Democrats” of their duties, they will not doubt be a part of a purging of the DOJ and FBI that, alluding back to the Mafia, will resemble the activities which went on during the Baptismal Ceremony in “The Godfather”…in a strictly political way, of course.

And that, in itself, would be very entertaining.

Lisa Page to Ignore Congressional Subpoena, Refuses to Testify

July 11, 2018

thCU1F9S9Z

FoxNews.com reports that

Former FBI attorney Lisa Page will not appear for a private interview with two House committees despite being subpoenaed, her attorney told Fox News Tuesday.

In a statement, Amy Jeffress said her client did not have enough time to prepare and had asked the House Judiciary and Oversight and Government Reform Committees to schedule another date.

“The Committees have not honored this request,” Jeffress said. “As a result, Lisa is not going to appear for an interview at this time.”

The committees did not immediately respond.

Jeffress added that the FBI had not given her and Page the necessary materials to prepare for her hearing.

Page originally was scheduled to appear before both committees Wednesday as part of their investigation into alleged bias at the Justice Department. She and FBI agent Peter Strzok, who is set to testify publicly before the committees Thursday, exchanged disparaging text messages about then-candidate Donald Trump throughout the 2016 campaign.

Page and Strzok both worked on the FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails and, later, special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation. Both were removed from the Mueller probe last year after the Justice Department’s internal watchdog made the special counsel aware of the anti-Trump messages.

So, what are the consequences for ignoring a Congressional subpoena?

According to lawandcrime.com,

2 U.S. Code § 192 provides, in part:

“Every person who having been summoned as a witness by the authority of either House of Congress to give testimony or to produce papers upon any matter under inquiry before … any committee of either House of Congress, willfully makes default … shall be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor, punishable by a fine of not more than $1,000 nor less than $100 and imprisonment in a common jail for not less than one month nor more than twelve months.”

As you can see, failing to respond to a Congressional subpoena can lead to some serious consequences.

So, now let’s go into further detail about the process that may ultimately lead to the above referenced consequences.

After a witness ignores a subpoena and fails to appear, the committee rules generally require a majority vote of the full committee authorizing a resolution of noncompliance to be reported to the entire House of Representatives. After the matter is reported to the full House, a floor vote is taken to determine whether a resolution of contempt may be issued against the offending individual. It takes a majority vote in the House to approve a resolution of contempt.

Once the resolution of contempt passes the full House, Congress technically has two options to pick from in deciding how to proceed with the case.

First, the House may instruct its sergeant-at-arms to arrest the individual and bring them before the House presiding officer (usually the Speaker of the House). The individual could be held in the Capitol jail, but this practice has not been used for more than 80-years.

The second, and more practical option, is for the Speaker to refer the matter to U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia for criminal contempt proceedings. The law then requires the U.S. Attorney to empanel a grand jury to consider indictments for criminal contempt.

The problem that the House Committees are facing in their investigation of “SpyGate” is that fact that it is so intricate.

As I have written before, this Deep State Operation is like a gigantic spider web, with a single strand leading back to its weaver. And, in this case, I believe that “spider” to be none other than Former President Barack Hussein Obama.

The very fact that the fired FBI Lovers, Strzok and Page, were on Mueller’s Probe Team at all demonstrates that it is nothing more that a political scam, designed to circumvent the will of the American people.

From the start, Spygate has been a plan designed to knock Republican Candidate Donald J. Trump out of the Presidential Campaign and later, The White House, by any means necessary.

A lot of people belonging to the hierarchy of the DOJ and FBI have been a part of it.

The reason that Lisa Page is not testifying today is not just that her lawyer has told her not to, in order to avoid self-incrimination. I am quite certain that someone from that hierarchy that I just mentioned warned her not to.

Page and her lover, Peter Strzok, know “where the bodies are buried” and those who have participated and who continue to participate in this plot against the 45th President are afraid that one or both of the lovers will name names.

It is past time for Mueller to come forward with whatever he has on the President so that this mockery can come to an end, allowing Trump to continue to do what the American people elected him to do.

And, as far at Ms. Page goes, fine her and then lock her up.

And, while you’re at it, House of Representatives, lock the rest of her co-conspirators up , too.

Obama and Hillary would look great frog-marching in orange jumpsuits.

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.

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,
