    Leading congressional Democrats are looking to stall the process to release documents related to the Russia investigation, which President Donald Trump ordered declassified on Monday. Reps. Nancy Pelosi and Adam Schiff and Sens. Chuck Schumer and Mark Warner, sent a letter Tuesday asking Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, FBI Director Christopher Wray and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats to provide an “immediate briefing” to the Gang of Eight before declassifying and releasing the documents. The four Democrats expressed “profound alarm” at Trump’s order to declassify the records. Trump ordered the Justice Department and Office of the Director of National...

    Virginia Democratic Sen. Mark Warner said he “must vote no” on Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination, joining a list of Democrats who have said they will not support President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee. While Warner has shared his concerns over Kavanaugh regarding issues like overturning Roe v. Wade, the Virginia Democrat said he would “still carefully examine Judge Kavanaugh’s record and judicial philosophy,” according to a statement on his website posted after Trump’s announcement of Kavanaugh’s nomination in July. Warner said Monday night on CNN’s “State of the Union” with Jake Tapper that it’s not just issues like “women’s reproductive...

    WikiLeaks is claiming that the Senate Intelligence Committee has asked its founder, Julian Assange, to testify as part of the panel's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. The organization posted a letter on its Twitter account dated Aug. 1 that purports to come from committee leaders Sens. Richard Burr (R-N.C.) and Mark Warner (D-Va.) requesting that he make himself available “for a closed door interview with bipartisan Committee staff at a mutually agreeable time and location.” A spokeswoman for Warner declined to comment on witnesses. A spokeswoman for Burr also declined to comment. Assange’s legal team is...

    U.S. Senator Mark Warner, the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, warned President Donald Trump on Tuesday over a possible pardon for his former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort. “Any attempt by the President to pardon Mr. Manafort or interfere in the investigation into his campaign would be a gross abuse of power and require immediate action by Congress,” Warner said in a statement.

    FULL TITLE: TIMELINE: Virginia Democrat Mark Warner Surprise Force Behind Masters of the Universe Crackdown on Speech Twitter this week suspended InfoWars host Alex Jones for seven days for what it said were violations of its policies, following Facebook, YouTube, Apple, and Spotify’s simultaneous banning last week. It is not clear what prompted those platforms to suddenly take collective action, but it came about one week after Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA), the vice chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, led a charge threatening new regulation of social media companies who cannot stop bad actors from using their platforms. Two weeks...

    Original Title: Corrupt Democrat Senator Mark Warner to Introduce Amendment to Block Trump From “Arbitrarily Revoking Security Clearances” ....Snip.... The fake news media and Democrats said President Trump revoking Brennan’s security clearance is an effort to suppress freedom of speech–having a security clearance is a privilege, not a right, but that didn’t stop the left from spreading propaganda. On Friday, Vice Chair of the corrupt Senate Intel Committee, Mark Warner (D-VA) said he will be introducing an amendment next week to block Trump from “arbitrarily revoking security clearances,” reported FOX News Congress reporter Chad Pergram.

    Virginia Democratic Sen. Mark Warner on Friday said he plans to present an amendment preventing President Trump from “arbitrarily revoking security clearances.” Warner’s announcement came after Trump earlier this week revoked the security clearance of former CIA Director John Brennan and hinted Friday that he would soon do the same for Department of Justice official Bruce Ohr. “I will be introducing an amendment next week to block the President from punishing and intimidating his critics by arbitrarily revoking security clearances,” Warner tweeted. “Stay tuned.”

    (snip) -- In the past several days a name has resurfaced, only this time with some more attention than in prior reports. The name is Oleg Deripaska, a Russian billionaire who is likely much more of a central figure than previously explained. (snip) -- This story, as told from the perspective of Adam Waldman -Deripaska’s lawyer/lobbyist- is important because it highlights a connection between Robert Mueller and Oleg Deripaska; a connection Mueller and the DOJ/FBI never revealed on their own.

    The information is coming, er, fast and furious over the last few days. That sound you hear, is the creaking of the roof over the heads of democrats. Oleg Deripaska is a Russian oligarch who was banned from entering the US in 2006. He wanted to be able to re-enter the US. His advocate? Christopher Steele. Who did Steele contact? Bruce Ohr.Emails in 2016 between former British spy Christopher Steele and Justice Department official Bruce Ohr suggest Steele was deeply concerned about the legal status of a Putin-linked Russian oligarch, and at times seemed to be advocating on the oligarch's...

    Senate Intelligence Chairman Richard Burr on Tuesday threatened to subpoena Trump campaign aides if they ignore deadlines to turn over records to his panel, explaining that he had received just two responses to an initial request for information. “I think all options are on the table, and I think you can envision what those options are,” the North Carolina Republican told reporters. “The most severe would be subpoena.” The Intelligence panel’s top Democrat, Mark Warner of Virginia, said it appeared that just one person was complying with Tuesday’s initial deadline to provide the committee with records of any meetings they...

    The U.S. was in talks for a deal with Julian Assange but then FBI Director James Comey ordered an end to negotiations after Assange offered to prove Russia was not involved in the DNC leak, as Ray McGovern explains. An explosive report by investigative journalist John Solomon on the opinion page of Monday's edition of The Hill sheds a bright light on how Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA) and then-FBI Director James Comey collaborated to prevent WikiLeaks editor Julian Assange from discussing "technical evidence ruling out certain parties [read Russia]" in the controversial leak of Democratic Party emails to WikiLeaks during...

    This is a breaking news story, and it is shocking to say the least. It was broken by The Hill’s contributor, John Solomon. In March of 2017, a ‘behind the scenes’ deal to negotiate with Julian Assange was in the works. It was essentially brokered to persuade Assange to the redaction of agency personnel in hostile jurisdictions and foreign espionage risks to WikiLeaks staff. This was when Wikileaks was ready to publish the Vault of tools used by United States Intelligence Community to spy on the population and whomever they chose. Those involved in this shocking story were James Comey,...

    President Trump blasted FBI agent Peter Strzok on Monday night, arguing that the hearing for the agent known for his anti-Trump text messages should be “shown to the public on live television.” “The hearing of Peter Strzok and the other hating frauds at the FBI & DOJ should be shown to the public on live television, not a closed door hearing that nobody will see,” the president tweeted. “We should expose these people for what they are - there should be total transparency!”Trump’s comments came just days before (Strzok is set to testify before the House Judiciary Committee). Strzok apparently...

    Virginia Sens. Mark Warner (D) and Tim Kaine (D) have questioned the Trump administration following an explosive report in The Associated Press detailing abuse allegations against a detention facility in their state. The AP on Friday reported that Kaine and Warner sent inquiries about the Shenandoah Valley Juvenile Center to the U.S. Office of Refugee Resettlement’s director. Warner and Kaine asked if employees who take part in abusing the young migrants receive disciplinary action and inquired about prior accusations, the report said. The AP on Thursday reported that a lawsuit filed against the facility includes abuse allegations from young Latino...

    Sen. Mark Warner, the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, said Thursday a meeting between a bipartisan group of House and Senate leaders and intelligence and law enforcement officials is a “farce” because the disclosure of classified information should be limited to the so-called “Gang of Eight” — a collection of Senate and House leaders who traditionally receive the briefings on sensitive intelligence matters. Two intelligence briefings are scheduled for Thursday afternoon to discuss the FBI’s investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election. It is said to include details about an FBI informant who contacted members of the...

    Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA) said there was not “a single piece of legislation” that would have prevented the recent school shooting in Texas. Warner said, “I don’t think there’s a single piece of legislation, but there’s a series of actions. Are there things we can do that would improve the safety of our schools? Absolutely.” He continued, “Should there be more mental health counseling for troubled teens, the number of the incidents caused by young men time and time again? Absolutely. Making sure people are safer with their own firearms? Absolutely.

    The top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee communicated through phone calls and text messages last spring with a lobbyist for a Russian oligarch in order to gain access to Christopher Steele, the former British spy who wrote the salacious and unverified anti-Trump dossier. Senator Mark Warner (D-Va.) texted back and forth with lobbyist Adam Waldman, who runs the Endeavor Group -- which has ties to (surprise!) Hillary Clinton -- while leading the Senate Intelligence Committee's investigation into President Trump's alleged ties to Russia with his Republican colleague North Carolina Sen. Richard Burr.In one text to the lobbyist, the senator expressed a desire...
  • The FBI didn’t use an informant to go after Trump. They used one to protect him. [WasPo garbage]

    05/18/2018 10:27:06 PM PDT · by Bigtigermike · 96 replies
    But Trump and his backers are wrong about what it means that the FBI reportedly was using a confidential source to gather information early in its investigation of possible campaign ties to Russia. The investigation started out as a counterintelligence probe, not a criminal one. And relying on a covert source rather than a more intrusive method of gathering information suggests that the FBI may have been acting cautiously — perhaps too cautiously — to protect the campaign, not undermine it. As a former FBI counterintelligence agent, I know what Trump apparently does not: Counterintelligence investigations have a different purpose...
