  • Conservatives say Papadopoulos testimony reinforces belief of no collusion

    House Republicans say George Papadopoulos's closed-door testimony before lawmakers on Thursday has reinforced their views that there was no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia during the 2016 presidential race. Two GOP lawmakers on the House Judiciary and House Oversight committees -- panels that are leading a joint investigation into FBI and Justice Department decision-making during the race -- described Papadopoulos as a clueless former campaign aide who somehow got swept up in the high-profile federal investigation, arguing that they have seen no evidence of collusion. They took shots at the ongoing Russia investigation, expressing dismay that federal officials...

    American Greatness ^ | October 18th, 2018 | Thomas Farnan
    To borrow a Shakespearean expression turned colloquialism, “there’s something rotten in the state of Denmark.” Great Britain has reportedly applied diplomatic pressure against releasing the unredacted Carter Page FISA documents. Why? Is it that British spy agencies were hot on the trail of Russian collusion and they do not want to have their sources compromised? Or, more likely, was MI6 spying on an American political campaign with a Russian pretext and it does not want to be embarrassed? A formal alliance permits intelligence agencies from the United Kingdom and the United States to engage in common spying to stop enemies...

    Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) asked Director Wray if President Trump’s conversations are getting collected in the FISA (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act) database and he would not answer. “We know bad actors exist within intel community,” Senator Paul said. “REFORM NEEDED NOW” the Kentucky Senator added. RAND PAUL: The FBI Director just testified in the US Senate. I asked him if @realDonaldTrump phone conversations are getting collected in the FISA database. He wouldn’t answer. Is NSA or FBI listening in on our President? We know bad actors exist within intel community. REFORM NEEDED NOW' “Do you think that it is possible...

    Russia Investigation: While America argued last month over Brett Kavanaugh's nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court, something momentous was happening all but off the media's radar: The Trump-Russia collusion investigation narrative continued to collapse in spectacular fashion, as Hillary Clinton's leading role in the scandal came into sharper focus.

    A top Republican senator is demanding documents regarding the FBI’s 2016 interactions with a lawyer working for the Democratic National Committee and Clinton campaign who provided information on Russian meddling. Fox News reported last week that Perkins Coie lawyer Michael Sussmann gave documents pertaining to the Russia probe to then-FBI general counsel James Baker, according to Baker’s own testimony. Perkins Coie is the same firm that, while working for the DNC and Hillary Clinton campaign, hired opposition research firm Fusion GPS to dig into then-candidate Donald Trump’s background – resulting in the controversial anti-Trump ‘dossier.’ In a letter being sent...

    House Republicans still want Glenn Simpson, the co-founder of the firm behind the anti-Trump dossier, to comply with their subpoena to appear on Capitol Hill despite his plans to invoke Fifth Amendment protections, a GOP House Judiciary Committee aide told Fox News on Friday. The tension with the Fusion GPS co-founder comes as new details emerge about just how widely distributed the unverified and politically funded dossier was back in 2016. A Fox News review of congressional testimony, British court records, emails and other documents indicate that at least five sources worked through other government agencies or fed the dossier...

    WASHINGTON—President Trump postponed the declassification and release of sensitive documents related to the investigation into his campaign’s links to Russian election interference, saying the matter would go to the Justice Department’s internal watchdog for further investigation. In a Friday morning tweet, Mr. Trump said the inspector general of the Justice Department would “review these documents on an expedited basis,” backing away from a previously announced plan to make public a secret surveillance warrant and the text messages of top law-enforcement officials. “I met with the DOJ concerning the declassification of various UNREDACTED documents. They agreed to release them but stated...

    The Washington Post ^ | September 10, 2018 | Greg Sargent, Opinion Writer covering National politics
    CNN is reporting that top congressional Democrats are planning to take an unexpectedly soft line on new and potentially very damning information that has emerged about Attorney General Jeff Sessions and the Russia probe. Why? Because Democrats understand full well that Sessions, of all people, could end up being pivotal to preventing President Trump from covering up the findings of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s investigation. It’s a complicated and interesting situation — and it’s unclear where it’s going to end up. A few days ago, the news broke that in a recent court filing, former Trump campaign adviser...

    House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) said Sunday that the transcripts and documents for witnesses in the GOP-controlled panel's now-concluded Russia investigation need to be released before the midterm elections. "We believe that the depositions that we took, I think nearly about 70 people, those need to be published and they need to be published I think before the election," Nunes said on "Fox News Sunday." "I expect to make those available from our committee to the American public in the next few weeks," he added. Nunes's comments come days after his colleague, Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) called for...

    Amid a renewed push to release the full, unredacted FISA warrant applications against former Trump campaign aide Carter Page, House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) warns that Democrats and the mainstream media will be “frightened” by what Americans will see. The Justice Department released mostly redacted versions of four FISA applications against Page in July. The unredacted portions showed the FBI heavily relied on the infamous Christopher Steele intelligence dossier, which contains unverified and salacious information about President Donald Trump. The FBI had maintained they mostly relied on intelligence separate of the dossier. What did Nunes say? Speaking at...

    The outcome of the midterms may depend on how quickly the administration can counter-attack on the legal front. The almost unnoticed fact in the latest Democratic assault on the Trump administration is that it is based entirely on charges of confusion, the circus, incoherence, and nastiness. These themes never have to be hammered very long before the faithful take up the incantation about impeachment, but these aren’t impeachable, even if the charges were true. The Resistance has abandoned the accusation of impeachable offenses. The media barely noticed Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s acceptance of written answers to questions about collusion, or...

    Chris Wallace says that the Woodward Book, the anonymous NYT op-ed, and Obama’s fiery speech were a “1-2-3 Punch” combination on Trump this week. But the word is that President Trump may be about to launch a devastating counterattack. It certainly looks that way. The word is that the White House legal team is examining the original FISA Court application and renewal applications for the warrant to surveil Carter Page. As President Trump considers declassifying the 20 pages of these documents that were released completely (or heavily) redacted this summer, as many in Congress have requested, the White House wants...

Part of that timeline was based on the fact that certain events had to have taken place -at specific times- in order to reconcile the downstream activity. From that circumstantial timeline CTH was able to assemble a graphic to help understand how corrupt DOJ and FBI officials had to have used information from Fusion-GPS, Nellie Ohr...

    ... The congressional request is for President Trump to declassify and release the Carter Page FISA applications (including specifically pages 10-12 and 17-34 and relevant footnotes), all of the Bruce Ohr 302s and other relevant documents, including exculpatory evidence regarding Carter Page and others, that were presented to the Gang of Eight, but not presented to the FISA Court. At first glance it appears to be a simple request right? However, it is anything but simple for a lot of reasons.

This comes after nearly a year of stonewalling by the Department of Justice at the demand of lawmakers, who claim that the 20 redacted pages will reveal explosive information about the FBI’s handling of the Trump-Russia investigation, according to...

    We shared a discussion thread several months ago about how the media are enmeshed within the story of the DOJ and FBI corruption. However, only recently did we discover the media engagements were not just pervasive, they were/are participatory. As a consequence the same media cannot reasonably report on any aspect of the story without exposing their own duplicity; their only choice is to double down on lies they helped create and promote. (see images) In preparation for explosive developments soon to reach critical mass CTH strongly urges everyone to think carefully about these recently discovered empirical truths: #1) The...
