  • Where Is the Democratic Outrage Over Spying on Americans?

    Under the Constitution, there are three branches of government. The FBI is not one of them. Instead, the FBI was created to assist the president in his job to enforce laws. Members of the FBI are called “agents” because of their agency relationship with the president. During World War II and then the Red Scare, the FBI's mission expanded to gather intelligence against spies. Here, too, the FBI was assisting the Commander in Chief. Even the word “intelligence” connotes this fact. The purpose was to help the president act intelligently against domestic threats. The FBI’s domestic intelligence gathering function caused...
  • CIA Argues The Public Can’t See Classified Information It Has Already Given To Favored Reporters

    Intelligence officials can selectively release classified information to trusted journalists while withholding the same information from other citizens who request it through open records laws, CIA lawyers argued Wednesday. ....The judge in the case appeared to find Johnson’ argument compelling. In a court order last month, Chief Judge Colleen McMahon of the Southern District of New York said FOIA laws do not authorize limited disclosure, to favored journalists or otherwise. “In this case, CIA voluntarily disclosed to outsiders information that it had a perfect right to keep private,” she wrote. “There is absolutely no statutory provision that authorizes limited disclosure...

    Moments ago FISA Court Presiding Judge Rosemary Collyer responded to the requests from the House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes and House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte. (full pdf’s below – #1 and #2) There are nuances in each response specific to the statutory roles of each Chairman and the specific requests made by each committee.  Reflected in Judge Collyer’s responses is a need for careful consideration of each unique request.♦House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes holds primary oversight authority over the aggregate Intelligence Community (IC).  Chairman Nunes has requested the transcripts from the FISA Court during the DOJ/FBI Title-1 surveillance...

    If there is an obstruction of justice case to be made against the president in the Trump-Russia affair, James Comey is in the middle of it. President Trump's decision to fire the FBI director is often cited as Exhibit A for obstruction, and the foundation for that case is a set of seven memos Comey wrote describing conversations he had with the president between Jan. 6 and April 11, 2017. The memos are critically important. Portions of them have been leaked to the press, given to a Comey friend, discussed in congressional testimony, and read by a few Capitol Hill...

    Synopsis: This is certainly one of THE most important stories I've ever done. Within the last hour we received what appears to be an official British TOP SECRET signals intelligence document dated Nov. 17, 2016, showing that President Obama and his National Security Advisor, Susan Rice were the ones who first requested electronic spying on the candidate Donald Trump, just 7 days after Trump won the Republican nomination in late August, 2016. The secret document, which has no redactions, was sent by Robert Hannigan, the Director of GCHQ, to Boris Johnson, the British Secretary of State for Foreign & Commonwealth...

    Hmmm… you don’t suppose she’s thinking of running for President, do you? Naw. Perish the thought. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) showed up on Sixty Minutes this weekend and was happy to serve up the usual round of hints suggesting some impeachment/removal talk which is always sure to spice up any slow political news cycle. Of course, we’ve had Democrats calling for Trump to resign since before he was even sworn into office, but the reasons change from month to month. So what is it this time? Ah, yes… it’s the #MeToo movement. (The Hill) Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) said Sunday...

    The game is over. The jig is up. Victory is certain… the trench was ignited… the enemy funneled themselves into the valley… all bait was taken… everything from here on out is simply mopping up the details. All suspicions confirmed. Why has Devin Nunes been so confident? Why did all GOP HPSCI members happily allow the Democrats to create a 10-page narrative? All questions are answered.
  • Strzok May Have Used His Cell Phone In A SCIF, Himself Breaking Classified-Info Rules

    The Daily Caller ^ | Feb 8 2018 | Luke Rosiak
    Released texts between Peter Strzok, the FBI agent who ran the investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s email server, and his lover, FBI attorney Lisa Page, reveal the strong possibility that Strzok used his cell phone in a SCIF — a strict violation of protecting classified information. Such a breach would compromise Strzok’s ability to probe Clinton for mishandling classified info and show a lack of awareness about security breaches, which is what he was tasked to investigate. The text messages that the Senate released Wednesday show that Strzok texted his mistress on Aug. 11, 2016, “We’re in...

    The news media labeled Nixon's scandal 'WATERGATE'. It's time to assign a name to the massive scandals perpetrated by Team Obama aimed at OVERTHROWING OUR DULY-ELECTED GOVERNMENT! This is a textbook example of a BLOODLESS COUP so I hereby label it 'COUPGATE'. We recall the IRS scandal where Obama attempted to shutter conservative groups and their efforts to win elections. Lerner abused her power by illegally targeting Republicans and Koskinen lied to Congress and destroyed key evidence subpoenaed by Congress. But that's small potatoes compared to the more vast and multi-agency COUPGATE conspiracy by Obama's White House, FBI, DOJ, CIA...
  • New texts spark new questions about FBI, Clinton emails; Missing link found in dossier scandal?

    The newly disclosed texts between Strzok and Page were exchanged on November 4, 2015, the day after Jill McCabe, wife of FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, lost a hotly contested Virginia state senate election. Strzok calls Virginians who ostensibly voted against Jill McCabe, "ignorant hillbillys." (sic) He calls the election outcome "disappointing." Sen. Ron Johnson, along with the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, is releasing the texts, along with a report entitled, "The Clinton Email Scandal and the FBI's Investigation of It." In another text exchange, Page writes to Strzok on September 2, 2016 about preparing talking points...

    A few moments ago Senator Chuck Grassley released an updated version of his memo which substantiates his prior Criminal Referral, against Christopher Steele, to the Department of Justice. Last Friday Chairman Grassley asked FBI Director Chris Wray to remove the prior redactions and declassify the underlying supportive documents; known as the “Grassley Memo”. FBI Director Wray did not remove all redactions; but did remove most. Here is the newest version (pdf link here):

    National Review ^ | 2/6/2018 | Victor Davis Hanson
    Many questions remain, but Democrats, including Obama, are probably not going to look good when we get the answers. Some things still do not add up about the so-called Steele dossier, FISA warrants, the Nunes memo, and the hysterical Democratic reaction to it. A Big Deal or a Nothing Deal? 1) Progressives and Democrats warned on the eve of the memo’s release that it would cause havoc throughout the intelligence agencies, by exposing classified means and processes. When no serious intelligence expert claimed that the released memo had done such damage, the official response to the memo was suddenly recalibrated...

    freebeacon.com ^ | Natalie Johnson
    House Homeland Security Committee chairman Michael McCaul (R., Texas) on Monday called for the publication of the classified documents that served as the basis of a Republican memo accusing federal law enforcement officials of abusing surveillance tools to spy on a former Trump aide. Republicans allege the four-page memo released Friday shows the Justice Department and FBI failed to disclose critical information to federal judges when applying for a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance warrant to wiretap onetime Trump campaign adviser, Carter Page. Democrats, who are pressing for the release of their own counter memo, say the Republican document cherry-picked facts from...

    Now that the political coup has failed epically, what’s next? Could the deep state and global elitists have an armed Communist coup planned? It may have seemed like something far-fetched and out of a novel about a future dystopia just a few years ago, but it’s now become all too real. Mike Adams, also known as the Health Ranger, is sounding alarms that a violent armed coup could be coming next. “Now that the attempted political coup against America has been exposed and halted, the demonic, deranged Left will move toward a KINETIC WAR/revolution that will unleash a civil war...

    Full tile: EXCERPT: Biased FBI and DOJ Officials Broke The Law And Tried To Decide The Election - an Annotated Timeline There can be no question, at this point, that certain higher ups in the FBI and the DOJ did not want Hillary to be indicted and did not want Donald Trump to become President. Those efforts were not entirely independent of each other. Below is a timeline of events – abbreviated though it is – that makes it rather plain that the FBI and DOJ were not investigating potential crimes objectively. Indeed, they were committing crimes during the process...

When we neither punish nor reproach evildoers, we are not simply protecting their trivial old age, we are thereby ripping the foundations of justice from beneath new generations.” – Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn The American people do not realize the seriousness of the Russiagate conspiracy against them and President Trump. Polls indicate that a large majority of the public do not believe that Trump conspired...

Sean Hannity says there is a second memo out (not the DNC response to the first). Hannity does a fair job of interpreting the first memo and untangling counterclaims, hi-lighting bad actors etc.
