    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...

    Shotened title. Full title: Congressional Sources Confirm Timeline of Bruce Ohr, Chris Steele and FBI Contacts With Andrew McCabe, Lisa Page and Peter Strzok Within the massive assembly of documents, emails, text messages, congressional testimony and portions of media reports a clear timeline emerged. 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.

    Trump has come under pressure by DOJ officials who do not want him to declassify the documents President Trump is expected to declassify the redacted 20 pages of documents from the controversial Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant that have still not been made public, which allowed the FBI to spy on short-term campaign volunteer Carter Page, numerous sources told SaraACarter.com. 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...

    If your breath can fog a mirror and you ended up here, you probably have at least some hazy idea that the FBI had filed one, or possibly two, requests for warrants under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), sometime in June and/or July of 2016—having something somehow to do with Donald Trump and his presidential campaign. You likely also have the idea that the FISA court denied the request (or requests). That opening paragraph is about as foggy as breath on a mirror for an inescapable reason. It’s a bet-the-farm certainty that you cannot say with any confidence at...

    FBI had actually paid Christopher Steele, the man who put together the infamous unverified dossier targeting President Donald Trump during the campaign, in 11 separate cash payments in 2016. This was despite being admonished in February 2016 and despite the fact that he was being paid with money from the Democrats that went through the law firm Perkins Coie to Fusion GPS to Steele for opposition research to gather against Trump... FBI was using taxpayer dollars to pay for opposition research and unverified smears on Trump. In the words of FBI official Peter Strzok, sounds like an “insurance policy.” ......

    Sen. John McCain brokered a clandestine and illegal deal, feeding Classified FBI intelligence to Fusion GPS and Christopher Steele to discredit Donald Trump prior to the 2016 election, according to federal law enforcement insiders. McCain, a sitting GOP Senator, was provided names of “problematic Russians” the FBI had recently investigated or were in the process of investigating. Top FBI executives worked with McCain to provide the names of the Russians, FBI insiders confirmed. Then McCain, handed the list off to Fusion GPS who was working with Christopher Steele. One of the names on the list was embattled Russian lawyer Natalia...

    How can Americans now trust the intelligence agencies shown to be corrupt in the very recent past? . . . snip For some reason, many still in the current FBI, CIA, DOJ, NSC, and State Deprtment are incapable of accepting that their agencies in the Obama years were weaponized to alter a U.S. election and were directed to do so by many top dogs in their Washington hierarchies. Until we get the truth, an accounting, and some sort of justice, we will not quite become galvanized by those who rightly warn us of real Russian interference.

    Our media’s valiant efforts to distract us notwithstanding, information continues to seep out that underscores how badly a housecleaning is needed in Washington, D.C. Last week saw the release of the applications used to obtain warrants from the FISA court to spy on Carter Page, an adviser to the Trump presidential campaign. Obtained by Judicial Watch, the 400-plus pages of (heavily redacted) documents support the conclusions earlier drawn by the House Intelligence Committee (and denounced by Democrats as hysteria): the FISA warrants were obtained through obfuscation and deceit. As various commentators predicted would be proven, the bulk of the information...

Is there a penalty for that?" Nunes than go on to explain that there is a penalty, and that the President needs to declassify this information. Nunes also said the redacted parts don't, in any way, affect national security. Later in the same video, Carlson says to anyone listening,"I hope someone will leak it to me...and I...

Greg Craig was Obama’s White House Counsel. All four men also, directly or indirectly, allegedly did work for the European Centre for a Modern Ukraine. And the ECFMU was allegedly a front for Yanukovich's Ukrainian pro-Russian faction. Manafort and the Podesta Group had failed to register as foreign agents.

But mea maxima culpa if I’ve confused Jonah by the rest of what I said. And if there’s a three-strikes-and-you’re-out law, I’m going down in flames on that, too: This morning, when I found out to my surprise and annoyance that I’d misspoken, I considered posting another tweet to make it crystal clear that I have never changed my position on the Trump Tower meeting. Specifically, I was...
