    A trove of emails and handwritten notes from Department of Justice official Bruce Ohr exposes the continuous contact and communication between the DOJ attorney and anti-Trump dossier author Christopher Steele, according to notes and documents obtained by SaraACarter.com. The emails and notes were written between 2016 and 2017. SNIP... In June 2017, Steele tells Ohr, “We are frustrated with how long this reengagement with the Bureau and Mueller is taking. Anything you can do to accelerate the process would be much appreciated. There are some new, perishable, operational opportunities which we do not want to miss out on.” In October...
  • Brennan says Trump’s claims of no collusion with Russia are ‘hogwash’

    Former CIA director John Brennan struck back at President Trump on Thursday, writing in a blistering op-ed that Trump’s claims of no collusion with Russia in the 2016 presidential election are “hogwash.” The piece, posted on the New York Times website, came a day after Trump announced he was stripping the security clearance of Brennan, who led the CIA during most of President Barack Obama’s second term and has emerged as one of Trump’s fiercest critics. In his op-ed, Brennan characterized Trump’s action as “politically motivated” and said it was “an attempt to scare into silence others who might dare...
  • New Texts Reveal Steele Anxious Over Comey Testimony, Hopes “Firewalls Will Hold”

    In March, 2017, two days before former FBI Director James Comey testified to lawmakers that the bureau had an open counterintelligence investigation into President Trump’s campaign, former British spy Christopher Steele sent an urgent message to Department of Justice official Bruce Ohr hoping that “important firewalls will hold” when Comey testified. The text message from Steele, who compiled the infamous unverified dossier on Trump, was sent on March 18, 2017, to Ohr and obtained by SaraACarter.com from a government source, familiar with the ongoing investigation.

    The FBI is being held accountable for its role in spy operations against the Trump campaign. John Brennan’s CIA should be held accountable as well. An editorial by Holman Jenkins in the Wall Street Journal on June 29, 2018 recommends an investigation of the CIA’s involvement in the 2016 election, and I agree. The WSJ’s Kimberley Strassel has commented on CIA involvement as well, as did Rudy Giuliani on August 13th. If press reports are accurate, American spy operations targeted the Trump campaign by luring Trump associates such as George Papadopoulos to meetings in Britain. There are two key factors...

    My first reaction upon seeing this headline was, “Wow! Rudy’s strategy is working.” Giuliani’s been running around telling reporters this week that they’re giving Mueller until September 1 to agree to their terms for an interview. If not then the offer’s off the table until after the midterms. If Mueller wants to try to subpoena Trump before then and get blasted relentlessly by Republicans for meddling in a national campaign in its home stretch, let him. That’ll further discredit the Russiagate probe in voters’ eyes by making it look as politically partisan as Trump is forever claiming it is....

    RCP ^ | August 11, 2018 | Peter J. Wallison
    President Trump’s media and congressional opponents continue to see great significance in the now-famous June 2016 meeting between Donald Trump Jr. and a Russian lawyer. Since the meeting was revealed, over year ago, it has provoked Trump’s opponents to feats of overstatement previously achieved only by Trump himself. Sen. Tim Kaine, Hillary Clinton’s 2016 running mate, called it “treason” and the New York Times and other media critics of the president have warned darkly that the meeting is evidence of the Trump campaign’s collusion with Russia. This is odd. If anything, the circumstances surrounding the meeting demonstrate that, at least...

    I'm confused. How is this different than every other day in the media? "The dirty war on the free press must end." That's the idea behind an unusual editorial-writing initiative that has enlisted scores of newspapers across America. Unusual? That's been the same theme that the media has been putting out for a few weeks. The Boston Globe has been contacting newspaper editorial boards and proposing a "coordinated response" to President Trump's escalating "enemy of the people" rhetoric. There's been a coordinated campaign against Republicans by the media for around 90 years. "We propose to publish an editorial on August...

    The Herald-Tribune ^ | August 11, 2018 | Marc A. Thiessen, The Washington Post
    All of Washington is waiting with bated breath to find out whether the Mueller investigation will provide evidence proving that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia. So far, “Exhibit A” against President Donald Trump is the meeting Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner and Paul Manafort had with a group of Russians claiming to have dirt on Hillary Clinton. That meeting should never have happened. When you get an email offering to provide “very high level and sensitive information” from the “Crown prosecutor of Russia” that could “incriminate Hillary” Clinton and is part of “Russia and its government’s support for Mr....

    The first two weeks of the trial of former Donald Trump presidential campaign chairman Paul Manafort on 18 counts of tax evasion and bank fraud charges have failed to implicate Trump or his campaign in any alleged criminal conduct. Prosecutors working for Special Counsel Robert Mueller – who is investigating Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential election – are expected to call their final witness Monday at Manafort’s trial in U.S. District Court in Alexandria, Virginia. If convicted on all counts, Manafort could face a maximum sentence of 305 years in prison. So far we’ve learned that the prosecution’s star...

    Thursday, August 9, 2018 BIGGER THAN WATERGATE! IT IS GOING TO BLOW! On Wednesday evening, Rudy Giuliani, attorney for President Trump, appeared on the Fox news show Hannity. Giuliani said on the show that the "real story" is that the Mueller case isn't going to fizzle, "it's going to blow up on them," referring to the Mueller team. "There's a lot more to what they did that nobody knows about yet," he added. "A lot more to the obstruction of justice, to the collusion, to the fake dossier," Giuliani added. President Trump this morning sent out this mysterious tweet: Hmm,...

    American Thinker ^ | 08/09/2018 | Rick Moran
    In a move designed to throw the Mueller collusion investigation off balance, Russia's top secret agent in the United States, Donald Trump, has slapped severe sanctions on Moscow for its role in the poisoning of a former intelligence officer and his daughter. I know: it's absurd.  But how else do you explain Trump's actions to sanction Russia if he's supposed to be under Putin's control? CNN: Sergei Skripal, a former Russian spy, and his daughter Yulia Skripal were hospitalized and treated for a nerve-agent attack in March. Yulia Skripal was discharged from the hospital in April, and her father was discharged in May....

    CONSERVATIVE TREEHOUSE ^ | 8/8/2018 | SUNDANCE
    Interesting. As previously said: the biggest takeaway from the documents today, showing the 2017 communication between Christopher Steele and Bruce Ohr, is the fact that Steele viewed Robert Mueller as part of the soft coup team. In this interview Rudy Giuliani goes further than ever before in calling out the nature of the DOJ/FBI investigation; and specifically outlining the Robert Mueller team as part of the larger conspiracy group to take-down President Donald Trump. According to Giuliani this information/evidence will surface over the next year to year-and-a-half, and will lead to a fundamental change in the institutions of the Department...

    Months after being dismissed from the FBI's Russia probe for misconduct, British intelligence operative Christopher Steele discussed being reinstated with a senior official working for Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, so Steele could assist special counsel Robert Mueller. "Whenever convenient, I would like a chat, there's a lot going on and we are frustrated with how long this re-engagement with the Bureau and Mueller is taking," Steele texted Associate Deputy Attorney General Bruce Ohr on Aug. 6, 2017. "Anything you could do to accelerate the process would be much appreciated." "Chris, good to hear from you," Ohr texted back as...

    Ellis had rebuked Andres for not looking at him while he was talking. "Look at me! Don’t look down," Ellis said. When Andres said he was looking at a document, Ellis said "that’s B.S." And on Wednesday, Ellis chastised Andres again for how he speaks to him. At one point, Andres responded with a simple "yea." "Be careful about that, this is not an informal proceeding," Ellis warned.
