    It is impossible to evaluate events in Russia today without understanding the mysterious series of bombings in 1999 that killed 300 civilians and created the conditions for Vladimir Putin to become Russia’s dictator for life. The bombings changed the course of Russia’s post-Soviet history. They were blamed on the Chechens. In the wake of initial success, Russia launched a new invasion of Chechnya. Putin, who had just been appointed prime minister, was put in charge of the invasion and his popularity soared. Six months later, he was elected president. On July 14, 2016, I filed a request for documents on...

    Fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, who is currently under federal investigation for improper media disclosures, will release a book this winter chronicling his time at the bureau and serve up harsh criticism of President Donald Trump. In a statement released Tuesday, St. Martin’s Press announced McCabe’s book, The Threat: How the FBI Protects America in the Age of Terror and Trump, will hit stores December 4. According to the publisher, the book will shine a light on “a series of troubling, contradictory, and often bizarre conversations” the ex-deep stater shared with President Trump, convincing him the “actions of this...
  • Text Messages Prove Strzok a Liar [semi-satire]

    Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 16 Sep 2018 | John Semmens
    Newly released text messages between former FBI anti-Trump conspirators Peter Strzok and Lisa Page show that Strzok’s claim that “the media leak strategy” text revealed last week “was to discuss ways of preventing leaks” is false. In this week’s batch of newly discovered texts, Strzok wrote Page to tell her that “the Times is angry with us for giving the Washington Post the scoop on the leak about Carter Page and the FISA warrant.” Strzok’s admission that he leaked classified information to the Washington Post would seem to invalidate Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s excuse for refusing to turn over...
  • Trump: FBI should not be involved further on Kavanaugh

    President Donald Trump on Tuesday responded to the news that the Senate has scheduled a hearing on Monday to consider allegations that his Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, sexually assaulted a woman when he was in high school. Trump said that the FBI should not be involved further investigating the Kavanaugh allegations. Kavanaugh's nomination has been in turmoil since the explosive allegations by Christine Blasey Ford, who said that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her at a party when they were both teenagers. Ford's allegation became public on September 16, just days before the Senate Judiciary Committee was scheduled to vote on...

    During their final days of access to FBI files and computers Andrew McCabe and Peter Strzok — before losing their jobs — each allegedly tried to destroy evidence and documents, per well-placed FBI and DOJ sources. But they were nabbed by a sting operation. Two of the supposed brightest minds who served the FBI — and led the country’s Intel apparatus — each separately set out to allegedly destroy incriminating evidence before their departures from the Bureau. And neither one had any clue they were being watched. But FBI Director Christopher Wray had suspected as much and — working with...

    Former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe has scored a book deal for "The Threat: How the FBI Protects America in the Age of Terror and Trump," according to an announcement from his publisher. McCabe was ousted from the bureau earlier this year after a Justice Department inspector general report concluded that McCabe had lied about his disclosures to media. McCabe has denied the allegations and is currently suing the Justice Department for wrongful termination. The book deal comes just months after former FBI Director James Comey released "A Higher Loyalty," which is highly critical of the president and sold more...

    A few days ago, September 13th, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes was given the Keeper of the Flame Award in Washington DC. Within his acceptance speech Chairman Nunes discusses the significance of this time in U.S. history. In the days and months following Watergate, the HPSCI was given specific rules within their legislative branch oversight, which actually became the most significant tools -utilized for the first time- to uncover intelligence abuses by the former administration. Additionally, Chairman Nunes expands on the “next steps.”

    Former FBI Director James Comey said Monday he took inspiration from a visit to Mount Rushmore in a brief message sent amid a chaotic day of headlines that included an order from President Trump to declassify Comey's text messages related to the Russia investigation. "Enjoyed today’s visit: An inspiring reminder that we always emerge stronger from hard times," Comey tweeted along with a photo in front of the memorial in South Dakota. Comey, who was fired in May 2017 and regularly tweets both subtle and overt criticisms of Trump, sent his latest message a short time after the president ordered...

    Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer says Republicans on the Judiciary Committee can’t be trusted to conduct an impartial review of the allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Schumer says voting on Kavanaugh scheduled for this week must be delayed so these “serious and credible” allegations can be investigated by the FBI.

    To date, Lisa Page’s infamy has been driven mostly by the anti-Donald Trump text messages she exchanged with fellow FBI agent Peter Strzok as the two engaged in an affair while investigating the president for alleged election collusion with Russia. Yet, when history judges the former FBI lawyer years from now, her most consequential pronouncement may not have been typed on her bureau-issued Samsung smartphone to her colleague and lover. Rather, it might be eight simple words she uttered behind closed doors during a congressional interview a few weeks ago. “It’s a reflection of us still not knowing,” Page told...

  • Was Christopher Steele Disseminating Russian Disinformation to the State Department?

    When Christopher Steele was hired to compile his “dossier” on Donald Trump in 2016, he already had an extensive history of presenting private intelligence analysis to U.S. policymakers. The former British spy had for years been funneling reports on Russia and Ukraine to senior State Department Russia analysts. Materials recently turned over to Congress show that while Steele was giving memos to State he also maintained close ties to the billionaire Russian industrialist Oleg V. Deripaska. Some congressional investigators are thus concerned that his memos may have been a channel of Russian disinformation. Here’s how Steele got his work distributed...

    Questions keep coming about how the U.S. justice system responded to a New Mexico compound that housed five alleged would-be jihadists and 11 reportedly malnourished children along with the remains of a twelfth child who died on the compound. A federal grand jury recently indicted the five alleged jihadists on weapons and conspiracy charges, alleging the group created their compound in the desert outside Taos, New Mexico as a training camp and firing range to facilitate a “Common plan to prepare for violent attacks government, military, educational and financial institutions” and sought to “engage in jihad and form an army...

    Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-California) released a statement about a letter that’s been in her possession since July that reportedly outlines allegations of attempted sexual assault by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh when he was in high school, unnamed sources familiar with the letter say. She released a statement devoid of specifics about the content of that letter, and said the informant “has strongly requested confidentiality, declined to come forward or press the matter further.” Feinstein said she had passed it along to the FBI. No one has verified the contents of the letter on the record and Feinstein has repeatedly...

    The FBI will not be investigating Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s (D-CA) last-second attempt to smear Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. After countless hours of hearings, a number of in-depth background checks, thousands of questions asked and answered, and numerous one-on-one meetings with senators of both parties, at the very last second Feinstein dramatically released a letter (she has reportedly had in her possession for months) to the FBI.
