    President Trump said Wednesday he will continue trying to toss out all of the Affordable Care Act, even as some in his administration, including Attorney General William P. Barr, have privately argued parts of the law should be preserved amid a pandemic. “We want to terminate health care under Obamacare,” Trump told reporters Wednesday, the last day for his administration to change its position in a Supreme Court case challenging the law. “Obamacare, we run it really well. . . . But running it great, it’s still lousy health care.” While the president has said he will preserve some of the Affordable...
  • Justice Dept. Winds Down Clinton-Related Inquiry Once Championed By Trump. It Found Nothing Of Consequence

    A Justice Department inquiry launched more than two years ago to mollify conservatives clamoring for more investigations of Hillary Clinton has effectively ended with no tangible results, and current and former law enforcement officials said they never expected the effort to produce much of anything. ohn Huber, the U.S. attorney in Utah, was tapped in November 2017 by then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions to look into concerns raised by President Trump and his allies in Congress that the FBI had not fully pursued cases of possible corruption at the Clinton Foundation and during Clintons time as secretary of state, when the...

    The CIA primarily leaks PR spin to the Washington Post. The FBI primarily leaks PR spin to the New York Times; and the State Dept. primarily leaks PR spin to CNN. This narrative distribution model is the one constant in an ever changing universe. Cue the audio visual Obviously the prior Washington Post effort to conflate the Durham investigation with the Horowitz investigation didnt get the desired result. As a consequence it only took a few days before the Washington Post was back at it (Matt Zapotosky and Devlin Barrett again) to try obfuscation 2.0; this time with Joseph Mifsud....

    Attorney General William P. Barr has told associates he disagrees with the Justice Departments inspector general on one of the key findings in an upcoming report that the FBI had enough information in July 2016 to justify launching an investigation into members of the Trump campaign, according to people familiar with the matter. The Justice Departments inspector general, Michael Horowitz, is due to release his long-awaited findings in a week, but behind the scenes at the Justice Department, disagreement has surfaced about one of Horowitzs central conclusions on the origins of the Russia investigation. The discord could be the...

  • FBIs Three Favorite Narrative Engineers Update Background Status of IG Report

    When former FBI small group members Andrew McCabe, James Baker, Mike Kortan, Peter Strzok and Lisa Page were working on their political operation to protect Hillary Clinton and remove Donald Trump they had three specific journalists (narrative engineers) atop their speed dials. Texts, emails, and documents released over the past three years showed that whenever the small group wanted to leak they preferred: Devlin Barrett, Robert Costa and Matt Zapotosky at the Washington Post. [Example source, pg 5] So when we see Barrett, Costa and Zapotosky getting the gang back together to write about the upcoming IG report, it...

    The Justice Department on Friday released its legal rationale for refusing to provide President Trumps tax returns to Congress, arguing that House Democrats want to make the documents public, which is not a legitimate legislative purpose. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin refused to hand the documents over early last month, writing in a letter to House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Richard E. Neal (D-Mass.) that the committees demand was unprecedented and could have lasting consequences for all taxpayers. After getting legal advice from the Justice Department, Mnuchin said he had determined the request should be refused.

    Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller IIIs office on Friday denied an explosive report by BuzzFeed News that his investigators had gathered evidence showing President Trump directed his former lawyer, Michael Cohen, to lie to Congress about a prospective business deal in Moscow. BuzzFeeds description of specific statements to the special counsels office, and characterization of documents and testimony obtained by this office, regarding Michael Cohens congressional testimony are not accurate, said Peter Carr, a spokesman for Mueller. The statement was remarkable on several levels first, the special counsels office speaks exceedingly rarely, and second, the statement seemed to drive...

    WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has been charged under seal, prosecutors inadvertently revealed in a recently unsealed court filing a development that could significantly advance the probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election and have major implications for those who publish government secrets. The disclosure came in a filing in a case unrelated to Assange. Assistant U.S. Attorney Kellen S. Dwyer, urging a judge to keep the matter sealed, wrote that due to the sophistication of the defendant and the publicity surrounding the case, no other procedure is likely to keep confidential the fact that Assange has been charged....

    Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein will stay in the job for now, but will meet with the president on Thursday, White House officials said Monday, after officials described a series of private discussions that pointed to his resignation or firing. At the request of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, he and President Trump had an extended conversation to discuss the recent news stories, said White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders. Because the President is at the United Nations General Assembly and has a full schedule with leaders from around the world, they will meet on Thursday when the President...

    A subpoena that House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) issued to the Justice Department last week made a broad request for all documents about an individual who people close to the matter say is a sensitive, longtime intelligence source for the CIA and FBI. The Justice Department has refused to provide the documents. Intelligence officials say the material could jeopardize the source, a U.S. citizen who has aided the special counsel investigation into Russias interference in the 2016 campaign. The subpoena, which was reviewed by The Washington Post, demands all documents referring or related to the individual referenced in...

    This report is about McCabe's leaks against Obama officials. Naturally -- that's the kind of leaking the Deep State doesn't like. Leaks against one of their own. Leaks against the minions of The Precious. So it's all about leaks that McCabe authorized certain underlings to make to the Wall Street Journal. The WSJ had published (on October 25, 2016) an article by Devlin Barrett noting that McCabe's wife had gotten huge donations (I think between $500,000 and $700,000) from Hillary Clinton's bagman Terry MacAuliffe for her election bid, and yet McCabe refused to recuse himself from overseeing the Clinton email...

    Barack Obama keeps a close watch on his emotions. I loved Spock, he wrote in February 2015 in a presidential statement eulogizing Leonard Nimoy. Growing up in Hawaii, the young man who would later be called No-Drama Obama felt a special affinity for the Vulcan first officer of the U.S.S. Enterprise. Long before being nerdy was cool, there was Leonard Nimoy, the eulogy continued. Leonard was Spock. Cool, logical, big-eared and level-headed. It is the rare occasion when Obama lets his Spock mask slip. But November 2, 2016, was just such a moment. Six days before the presidential election, when...

    The long-simmering feud between President Trump and the Justice Department erupted into open conflict Wednesday when the FBI publicly challenged the presidents expected release of a contentious and classified memo related to the probe of Russian meddling in the 2016 election. In a rare unsigned statement, the FBI cited grave concerns with inaccuracies and omissions in the four-page memo, which was written by House Republicans and alleges abuses at the Justice Department connected to secret surveillance orders. Trump has told advisers that the memo could benefit him by undercutting the special counsels investigation and allow him to oust senior Justice...

    FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe is stepping down from his job and is expected to be replaced by David Bowdich, a senior official who headed the FBIs response to the terrorist attack in San Bernardino, Calif., according to people familiar with the plans. McCabe will formally retire in March but plans to leave the deputy director position now, a person close to the matter confirmed to The Washington Posts Devlin Barrett and Matt Zapotosky on Monday. McCabe has often been a target of President Trump who asked the deputy director in a private discussion whom he had voted for...

Here below we again see Devlin Barrett's name, popping up in the endless back-and-forth texts between Strzok and Page: Can you see just how deeply reporters --reporters expected to COVER stories just like this-- are entwined in these same stories..? And then again towards the bottom of the text record graphic you'll see mention of Rybicki, FBI Chief of Staff, who abruptly and without giving any reason at all QUIT the FBI last week...?

    With the latest information revealing that FBI Agent Peter Strzok and DOJ/FBI Attorney Lisa Page were specifically leaking to their media sources to shape the underlying story of their political efforts, everything presented by the recipients of those leaks should now be questioned. Page and Strzok were the sources for stories written by Devlin Barrett of the Washington Post. As such, obviously the network of Page and Strzoks professional colleagues, would also be considered part of a grouping of people who would benefit from specific leaks intended to shape the stories. One of those initial stories was a December 2nd,...

    It now appears the “Devlin” in question is former Wall Street Journal National Security reporter Devlin Barrett, currently with The Washington Post. Here’s why? On October 28th, 2016 (as above), at the exact time the re-opening of the Clinton investigation hit the media news-cycle, Page and Strzok were texting. From the released messaging we see at 5:19pm Lisa Page is on the phone with “Devlin”: ♦Page: 5:19pm “Still on the phone with Devlin. Mike’s phone is ON FIRE.” ♥Strzok: 5:29pm “You might wanna tell Devlin he should turn on CNN, there’s news on.” ♦Page: 5:30pm “He knows. He just got...
