    Plausible Deniability: Frustrated by the lack of progress on holding guilty parties involved in the dubious Obama-era “Spygate” scandal accountable, outgoing House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes said there should be an “Office of Transparency” connected to the White House that is responsible for deciding which documents can be declassified and released to the public. “Our investigation is essentially over. We have everything that we need. What we’re lacking now is that we’re lacking the declassification by the president,” Nunes, R-Calif., told Fox News of his panel’s look into the handling of the “Russia” inquiry by the Justice Department and...
  • Trump “Seriously” Considering Declassifying Key Russia Investigation Documents

    Congressional members say the declassification would expose extensive evidence of abuse by the FBI and FISC. President Donald Trump said Wednesday that he is “seriously” considering declassifying a slew of documents requested by former Republican House leaders investigating the FBI’s handling of the Russia probe. Trump was pummeled with questions during a rancorous White House press briefing where he congratulated Republicans for winning Senate races and said he hoped to work with the new Democratic House leadership. The president addressed questions regarding whether or not he would end Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, stating, “I could, I could fire everybody...

    In February, one reporter filed to have information about Carter Page’s warrant released. Now? The paper worries about ‘security concerns.’ Last Monday, President Donald Trump told the Justice Department and the FBI to declassify unredacted versions of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrant applications used to get wire-taps on Carter Page. The president also called for other materials—such as Bruce Ohr and Christopher Steele’s email correspondence—to be revealed. But by Friday, Trump had backed off, tweeting that the Department of Justice had persuaded him to let the DoJ inspector general vet the documents first. That way a “perceived negative impact...

    Unconstitutional: You can always tell how desperate and panicked Democrats are about the disclosure of certain information to the public by the level of authoritarianism they are willing to engage in. And boy, are they panicked over POTUS Donald Trump’s intent to order the Justice Department to declassify all documents related to FISA warrant applications used by the Obama Deep State to spy on the president’s 2016 campaign. On Tuesday we reported that the president had ordered the declassification of those documents and what to look for; there are a lot of people who, if (and it’s a big ‘if’)...

    Light of Day: Late Monday POTUS Donald Trump ordered the release of unredacted FISA warrant applications “[a]t the request of a number of committees of Congress, and for reasons of transparency,” White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders announced after reports surfaced last month that POTUS was considering doing so. “The documents to be declassified also include 12 FBI reports on interviews with Justice Department official Bruce Ohr and all FBI reports of interviews prepared in connection with all other applications to surveil Carter Page,” as Fox News and other outlets reported. This was a long time coming. House Republicans, especially,...

    The Big Reveal: An embattled POTUS Donald Trump may be on the verge of declassified all documents related to the FBI’s FISA warrant applications to spy on one of his former campaign advisors, Carter Page, days after Republican lawmakers have asked him to do so. POTUS may also be set to declassified all documents related to the Justice Department’s former No. 4 official, Bruce Ohr, whose wife Nellie worked for Fusion GPS, the opposition research firm hired by the Hillary Clinton campaign to produce the bogus “Russia dossier.”

    Shine the Light: For more than a year we’ve watched as POTUS Donald Trump expressed anger and resentment at the existence of special counsel Robert Mueller and his bogus witch hunt of an investigation into non-occurrences: 2016 Trump campaign “collusion” with Russia and Trump ‘obstruction of justice.’ The president has (rightfully) expressed the most displeasure with his AWOL attorney general, Jeff Sessions, who immediately caved to Deep State pressure and recused himself from any Justice Department-related probe into all things Russia and the Trump campaign.

    Normally when somebody wants something from somebody else, they show their best behavior toward the person they want it from. Even a child knows this and will do what its parents want in order to get that ice cream cone or trip to Disneyland. Why is it we never see this normal human reaction from the Palestinians with regards to USAID and the President of the United States in order to get their “Palestinian state”? Machmoud Abbas continually praises terrorists who murder Jews, declaring memorials and naming streets after them. Abbas makes daily threats to the long term existence of...

    WASHINGTON - The war in Iraq has become a “cause célèbre” for Islamic extremists, breeding deep resentment of the U.S. that probably will get worse before it gets better, federal intelligence analysts conclude in a report at odds with President Bush’s contention of a world growing safer. In the bleak report, declassified and released Tuesday on Bush’s orders, the nation’s most veteran analysts conclude that despite serious damage to the leadership of al-Qaida, the threat from Islamic extremists has spread both in numbers and in geographic reach. ----------------------- Virtually all assessments of the current situation were bad news.

  • U.S. to Declassify Bin Laden Memo

    WASHINGTON (AP) - The Bush administration expects to release early next week an intelligence document titled "Bin Laden Determined to Attack Inside the United States" that the Sept. 11 commission requested. White House officials were working Friday to declassify the document, a so-called presidential daily brief. PDBs are a compilation of information from law enforcement and intelligence agencies designed to keep the president updated on threats around the world. They normally are circulated exclusively among a select group of top administration officials. Members of the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States already have seen the Aug. 6,...

    WASHINGTON (AP) - President Bush refused on Tuesday to declassify 28 pages of a congressional report on possible links between Saudi government officials and the Sept. 11 hijackers, saying that "would help the enemy" by revealing intelligence sources and methods. Saudi Arabian Foreign Minister Saud al-Faisal called suggestions of such links "an outrage to any sense of fairness" and said his country had been "wrongfully and morbidly accused of complicity in the attacks." "Twenty-eight blank pages are now considered substantial evidence to proclaim the guilt of a country that has been a true friend and partner of the United States...
