  • 54 things Donald Trump Jr. couldn’t ‘recall’ or ‘remember’ in his testimony

    If there's one thing Donald Trump Jr. cleared up with his congressional testimony, it's that he doesn't remember a lot of things. In a newly released transcript of his testimony, Trump repeatedly couched his answers about that June 2016 Trump Tower meeting by saying he did not “remember” or that he didn't “recall” certain things. Even when he was pretty sure, he'd say “not that I recall” or something like that. The result was a pretty cagey piece of testimony.

    Dear Mr. Nunes, we get it.. we really do get it. We understand why; but don’t listen to those voices. Please stop underestimating the intellectual capacity of the average American to understand how the FISA-702 intelligence surveillance system was corrupted, and yet remain cognizant that much of the system is vital and necessary. The House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI) has delayed the testimony of DOJ Deputy Bruce Ohr, likely reflecting a desperate need to keep the unlawful use of FISA-702 surveillance in 2015/2016 under wraps until FISA can be reauthorized.The Senate FISA-702 re-authorization went through a wave flux...

    Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, and the leading minority member of the 2016 Gang of Eight (intelligence oversight) when she previously held Vice-Chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee, released the full transcript of the Judiciary Committee interview with Fusion-GPS founder Glenn Simpson. The transcript was released over the objections of Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley who is investigating the role of Fusion-GPS and their “Steele Dossier” in the 2016 DOJ/FBI surveillance operation of presidential candidate Donald Trump.

    Sen. Dianne Feinstein released the full transcript of Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson's testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee. Simpson touched on a wide array of topics in the 312-page transcript, including President Trump's business ties and his tax history. Democrats on the committee said they were not consulted ahead of a decision by Senate Republicans to issue a criminal referral against former British spy and Fusion GPS investigator Christopher Steele. Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., on Tuesday released the full transcript from Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson's testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee regarding Russian interference in the 2016...

  • Obama's Top Iran Negotiator May Have Had Personal Email Account Hacked While Negotiating Deal

    Daily Caller ^ | September 24, 2016 | Chuck Ross
    The Obama administration's top negotiator on the Iran nuclear deal - and a candidate for secretary of state in a Hillary Clinton administration - told the FBI that hacking attempts were made on her personal email account several years ago during a negotiation session. The bombshell revelation comes from FBI notes taken during a Feb. 3 interview with a former State Department official. Though the official's name and sex are redacted throughout the notes - which were compiled as part of the Clinton email investigation - other clues in the document strongly suggest that it is Wendy Sherman.

    The former top IT official to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, pleaded the 5th Amendment against self-incrimination — 90 times — in a federal court-ordered deposition on Oct. 24. John Bentel, the former Director of Information Resource Management of the Executive Secretariat, the office that handles information technology for the Office of the Secretary of State, was ordered by U.S. District Court Judge Emmet G. Sullivan to answer questions under oath to the lawyers at the government watchdog group Judicial Watch. In his Aug. 19 order, Judge Sullivan wrote, “The Court is persuaded that Mr. Bentel should be deposed because...

    The threats that former IRS senior executive Lois G. Lerner says are serious enough to keep her court depositions forever secret date back to 2014, and she hasn’t shown any new threats, according to new court documents filed late Thursday. Ms. Lerner and her key deputy, Holly Paz, have demanded a judge forever seal their depositions and parts of any documents that mention those depositions, saying they fear for their safety. But the harassment they point to as evidence is more than three years old and dates back to the most heated days of the debate over the IRS’s illegal...

    As the Trump-Russia conspiracy express grinds on, a real scandal has been completely covered up by the corrupt mainstream media. That is that several high-ranking officials in the Obama administration conducted extensive domestic surveillance operations against the campaign of then candidate Donald Trump. It was a gross abuse of power as well as a hijacking of the national security apparatus for political means. The surveillance was aided by the “unmasking” of names of American citizens in intelligence reports that were widely distributed to political operatives. One who has been identified as a chief culprit is former Obama National Security Advisor...
  • PERJURY: Comey Lies That Pres. Trump Tweet Prompted Leak

    06/08/2017 4:13:54 PM PDT · by sdthree · 118 replies
    During the hearing, Senator Susan Collins asked Comey if he had shown copies of his memos to “anyone outside” of the Justice Department. Comey replied, “yes,” saying he made the decision to do so after President Trump tweeted about possible audio recordings the day after he was fired. However, that information seems to be inaccurate, because the memo was leaked to the New York Times May 11th and President Trump tweeted on the 12th. Comey said he hoped to benefit from that leak.

    06/08/2017 3:41:51 PM PDT · by FlipWilson · 8 replies
    Given the incredible testimony of Mr. Comey wherein the contradictions from prior testimony and apparent abuses of power abound, why would it not be appropriate to investigate Mr. Comey. He certainly has created at least probable cause that he is a source of top secret leaks of classified information. Sessions probably would not want to tackle this direction for fear of it looking retaliatory. Thus, I say sauce for the Goose. I propose appointing a special counsel to investigate this. After all, have not the democrats touted the need for such independent prosecutors. The Special Counsel's mandate would be to...

    Former FBI director James Comey is formally refusing to answer questions submitted to him by a bipartisan group of senators, suggesting he no longer must do so as a private citizen. Comey sent an email from his private account last week rebuffing the seven questions that had been submitted to him by Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles Grassley and the committee’s ranking Democrat Dianne Feinstein after Comey’s final testimony as FBI director to the panel last month. Comey was fired by President Donald Trump shortly after his appearance. Sens. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., and Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., joined in the request...

    This week, while Donald Trump ensnares himself in the most serious threat to his presidency to date, Congress is, to some extent, continuing with the typical business of government. A series of hearings during “Infrastructure Week” are focusing on the administration’s rumored infrastructure plan.Although the White House has been talking up private infrastructure investment as a replacement for public funding, a panel of experts told Congress that, even with perfectly executed public-private partnerships, the federal government still needs to provide its own support — especially for projects, like transit lines, that aren’t guaranteed to generate toll revenue for profit-seeking investors.This...
  • Ted Cruz Cleaned Sally Yates’s Clock. Here’s Why.

    Breitbart ^ | 05/09/2017 | Joel B. Pollak
    On Monday, in a hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) exposed former Acting Attorney General Sally Yates’s ignorance of the law, and the partisan nature of her decision to refuse to enforce President Donald Trump’s executive order suspending travel from several terror-prone countries. One would not know that from the liberal media, which thinks Yates won the exchange, but Cruz proved his case decisively. Here’s why — in short: Cruz brought up the law that authorized the executive order, and Yates did not recognize it. She then answered by referring to another law, which does not...
