  • Peter Strzok denies throwing 'cocktail party' for judge on surveillance court

    Washington Examiner ^ | June 15, 2018
    Senior FBI official Peter Strzok says he didn't arrange a cocktail party with a federal judge who serves on the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, despite telling his mistress in a text message that he would. Strzok suggested a "cocktail party" with U.S. District Judge Rudolph Contreras in a July 25, 2016, message to FBI attorney Lisa Page. Days later, on July 31, Strzok opened the FBI's probe of possible Trump campaign collusion with Russia. Strzok told the Justice Department inspector general's office that his messages regarding the judge dealt with no particular case and that the social gathering didn't happen,...

    House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes said Sunday that “there will be hell to pay” — including impeachment for top Justice Department officials — if the agency fails this week to give Congress documents about an FBI informant used to spy on the Trump campaign. “We can’t force the resignation, but we can hold in contempt, we can pass resolutions, we can impeach. I think we’re getting close to there,” Nunes said of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein in an interview with Maria Bartiromo on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures.” Nunes has battled Rosenstein for months over other documents related...

    FBI agent Peter Strzok offered to testify before the House Judiciary Committee in a letter from his attorney released on Sunday. The letter was drafted by Strzok's attorney Aitan Goelman and was sent to House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.). The letter comes amid reports that Goodlatte had begun initiating procedures to subpoena Strzok, who was removed from special counsel Robert Mueller's probe into Russian election meddling after it was revealed he sent anti-Trump text messages during the 2016 presidential campaign. "While you are, of course, free to continue pursuing this process, it is wholly unnecessary," Goelman wrote in the...

    House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., has given the Justice Department until Tuesday to provide access to documents concerning the FBI's alleged informant looking into any Russian ties to President Trump's 2016 campaign. ~ In a letter sent Friday to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, Nunes said the records should be provided to all committee members "and designated staff" rather than just the so-called "Gang of Eight" -- which refers to Republican and Democratic leaders in both houses of Congress as well as top lawmakers from the intelligence panels. "DOJ continues to obfuscate and delay its production using an...

    This week, by a vote of 207-201, the US House of Representatives approved a measure requiring a semi-annual audit of how Special Counsel Robert Mueller is spending the taxpayers’ money. Thus far, Mueller’s investigation of possible collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign has admitted running through nearly $17 million in total, but no itemization has been provided. Sponsor of the measure, Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC), defended it, saying that “a special counsel’s work is important, but they should not be able to spend taxpayer dollars without accountability. Americans need to know where their money is going.” Rep. Tim Ryan...

    House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes condemned Twitter on Sunday for continuing to apply a layer of censorship on the Drudge Report. Two months after the California Republican raised the alarm about Drudge Report "being censored by Twitter," Nunes again nailed the social media platform for putting up a wall separating users from the top right-leaning news aggregator. "I just looked on Twitter," Nunes said on "Sunday Morning Futures With Maria Bartiromo." "The Drudge Report is being censored today, so for the last three or four days I haven't been able to get on the Drudge Report because it's being...

    With much of the media, and indeed the President himself, fueling the ongoing headline discussion over the ramifications of the Obama administration setting up “surveillance”, “informants”, counterintelligence operations and “agent provocateurs” against their political opposition, ie. “SpyGate”, it is perhaps time for some mental sorbet. Relating to the overall issue, on March 28th, 2018, the DOJ Office of Inspector General Michael Horowitz formerly announced an additional investigation of how the U.S. Department of Justice and Federal Bureau of Investigation engaged with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) in matters relating to the FISA Title-1 application filed against U.S. person Carter...

    Newly-examined emails among high-ranking U.S. intel officials at the time—including then-Director James Comey and his chief of staff James Rybicki—reference a “sensitive matter team.” Based on the context of the emails, the “sensitive matter” appears to be the Trump-Russia narrative, and political opposition research funded by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee. The research— known as the “Steele dossier”— was peddled to the press and secretly used, in part, to justify controversial FBI wiretaps against at least one Trump associate. The emails were first obtained by the Justice Department Inspector General and recently turned over to the...

Nunes subpoenaed the Justice Department and threatened to hold officials in contempt of Congress if they refuse to release files regarding a confidential FBI informant who spoke to Trump campaign associates in 2016 about Russian election meddling. The California Republican said he and his colleague Trey Gowdy (R., S.C.) had a “productive” meeting with DOJ officials a few weeks ago but ignored a Friday invite to meet again when they...
