    Just before Thanksgiving, House Republicans amended the list of documents they’d like President Trump to declassify in the Russia investigation. With little fanfare or explanation, the lawmakers led by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) added a string of emails between the FBI and the Department of Justice (DOJ) to their wish list. Sources tell me the targeted documents may provide the most damning evidence to date of potential abuses of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), evidence that has been kept from the majority of members of Congress for more than two years. The email exchanges included then-FBI...

    At the request of a number of committees of Congress, and for reasons of transparency, the President has directed the Office of the Director of National Intelligence and the Department of Justice (including the FBI) to provide for the immediate declassification of the following materials: (1) pages 10-12 and 17-34 of the June 2017 application to the FISA court in the matter of Carter W.

    Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH)...The latest text messages from the anti-Trump officials show how they were feeding anti-Trump articles to the press. The newly released documents obtained by the House Oversight Committee reveal Peter Strzok and Lisa Page were discussing a strategy to leak unverified information to the media in an effort to damage President Trump. ... when Michael Horowitz, the Inspector General, did his investigation he talked about the fact that one reporter had 13 different individuals at the FBI who were feeding him information. So, there was certainly a leak strategy going on. The most troubling aspect of all...

    Deep State: In a bombshell revelation, House Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows, R-N.C., told Fox News‘ Laura Ingraham Thursday that the FBI “coordinated” leaks to the media in order to use them as justification for obtaining FISA court warrants on what appear to be false pretenses. The FISA warrants, which were used to spy on minor 2016 Trump campaign figure Carter Page in an attempt to link him and Team Trump to a ‘Russian collusion’ narrative, were subsequently renewed three times after the initial warrant was issued in October 2016 — all of the renewals after POTUS Trump won the...

    ‘[N]o such hearings were held with respect to the acknowledged FISA applications. Accordingly, no responsive hearing transcripts exist.’ (Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch today announced that in response to a Judicial Watch Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit, the Justice Department (DOJ) admitted in a court filing last night that the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court held no hearings on the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) spy warrant applications targeting Carter Page, a former Trump campaign part-time advisor who was the subject of four controversial FISA warrants. In the filing the Justice Department finally revealed that the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court...

    Criminal Misconduct: During an appearance Wednesday night on Fox News‘ Sean Hannity program, network legal analyst and attorney Gregg Jarrett suggested that judges on the secretive FISA court should call in Deep State figures from Obama’s FBI and Justice Department and press charges against them for allegedly misrepresenting information used to get a spying warrant on a Trump campaign figure. And not long after Jarrett’s appearance, POTUS Donald Trump voiced his approval for that legal strategy.

    House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes claims that the FBI and Justice Department omitted ‘exculpatory evidence’ on Carter Page in spy applications. Nunes is investigating the FBI and DOJ for possible FISA abuse. The Republican also claims that DOJ official Bruce Ohr will become ‘more and more important’ to his investigation. House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes claimed Monday that the FBI and Justice Department failed to include exculpatory evidence in surveillance warrant applications against former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page. “There is exculpatory evidence that we have seen, of classified documents that need to be declassified,” Nunes said in...

    Shine the Light: For more than a year we’ve watched as POTUS Donald Trump expressed anger and resentment at the existence of special counsel Robert Mueller and his bogus witch hunt of an investigation into non-occurrences: 2016 Trump campaign “collusion” with Russia and Trump ‘obstruction of justice.’ The president has (rightfully) expressed the most displeasure with his AWOL attorney general, Jeff Sessions, who immediately caved to Deep State pressure and recused himself from any Justice Department-related probe into all things Russia and the Trump campaign.

    National Review ^ | 07/23/2018 | Andrew McCarthy
    On a sleepy summer Saturday, after months of stonewalling, the FBI dumped 412 pages of documents related to the Carter Page FISA surveillance warrants — the applications, the certifications, and the warrants themselves. Now that we can see it all in black and white — mostly black, as they are heavily redacted — it is crystal clear that the Steele dossier, an unverified Clinton-campaign product, was the driving force behind the Trump–Russia investigation. … It turns out, however, that the crazies were right and I was wrong. The FBI (and, I’m even more sad to say, my Justice Department) brought...

    All those Very Confident Statements about what was contained in the Carter Page FISA application may be put to the test sometime soon. USA Today reports that DOJ may release parts of the Carter Page FISA application that so far has been only described in the Devin Nunes #ReleaseTheMemo and the Adam Schiff response: In dueling memos released last month, Republican members — led by California Rep. Devin Nunes — alleged that Justice and FBI officials abused their authority in targeting the former campaign adviser by improperly relying on an unsubstantiated dossier prepared by a former British spy. Democrats —...

    Rep. Devin Nunes says the FBI violated its own rules, and may have skirted federal law, by using a Democratic Party-bought dossier to spy on a Trump campaign volunteer. In a letter, he has asked Attorney General Jeff Sessions to “hold accountable” those who oversaw the warrant on Carter Page. The chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence told Mr. Sessions that the FBI’s Domestic Investigations and Operations Guide (DIOG) contains specific instructions on how to apply to a judge for a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) wiretap. Mr. Nunes, California Republican, says the FBI clearly violated those...

If you dare ask where the secret court is located, employees at the E. Barrett Prettyman Federal Courthouse in Washington, D.C. – where the court reportedly relocated in 2009 – won’t tell you. That’s because the super-secret court is far beyond the reach of any journalist or curious American citizen. biometric-hand-scannerFortified with biometric hand scanners, wooden and metal doors and walls reinforced by concrete, it’s...

    Sorry for the quick hit vanity, but with all of the back and forth about the extent to which the FISA court that granted the warrant against Carter Page was informed that the Clinton campaign had paid for the dossier upon which it was based, I've not seen anything indicating one way or the other whether they were also told that that Page had recently been on the Trump campaign. If they were willing to obfuscate the political origins of the dossier, why do we assume that they were any more transparent about the fact that the warrant on Page...

VIDEO #3 begins to put a close focus on a specific cast of characters at the highest levels of the DOJ and FBI.
