    The court of public opinion needs to be held first before an actual trial can convene. Without bringing all the the dirt into the limelight first, any prosecution would only be viewed as a political move.

    No no lets rush in and make arrests of hussein lickspittles and sycophants so they can be put in front of a hussein appointed DC swamp judge. . aroll.gif .. (sarc)
    Then the charges will all be dismissed and the perp will walk, never to be tried on those same charges again.
    If one looks closely this is exactly what the dirtiest swamp creatures are taunting the good guys to do. Then they get off scott free and keep their money.

    Much better to torture them and keep raising the heat. None of them are going anywhere or are in positions to cause any real harm.
    I bet some have already cracked and are talking, only to be told "we already know all of this."

    If you trusted the polls leading up to the election last year, you probably thought the pantsuit had it in the bag. Nothing could be farther from the truth. The fact is that the corrupt media has been leading us around by our noses for decades. It's called steering. Their fake news and fake polls are somewhat less than subliminal attempts by the far left to steer the populace into thinking their candidates are winning in the polls. They've even gone so far as to constantly suggest that the candidate losing in the polls doesn't have any chance of winning. Most recently, this was the position all of the crooked far left media took with President Trump.

    We all can be thankful that their amateurish attempt at political savvy backfired right in their faces. Their plan B, which they didn't really have, was immediately attacking the Electoral College as unconstitutional and illegal, two things they know quite a bit about. They were hoping that illegals and mooslums would join their community organized thugs in the streets by the millions to protest, riot, and loot until the new president gave up and ceded the WH to the wicked pantsuit. That didn't happen, either.

    So, for this past year, they've attempted to derail the president's agenda by any means, hook or crook. The RINO's and so-called "establishment" dinosaurs in both parties then conspired together to take down this presidency with the Mueller investigation. This time, the president has masterfully turned the tables on this attempt, too. The so-called "deep state," the operatives that the obamanoid implanted in the bureaucracy before the inauguration, have caused much havoc and disarray but they, too, haven't succeeded in removing the new president, either. Even more so, these operatives of the previous administration have unwittingly helped expose the huge conspiracy against President Trump leveled at him and his administration by the monkey boy and his minions.

    There's an excellent chance that the whole far left plot will crash and burn before too long. Whether heads will roll and culprits will see prison time remains to be seen. In these days of zero culpability and accountability, it's hard to say just how everything is going to shake out. We shall see.............

    However it happens, they need to be dis-empowered to such a degree they can never gain access to real power again. I’d prefer to see them do time, but the most important thing is to separate them from everything and everyone that has fueled their malignant ambition for decades.

    Definitely! This lays the legal foundation for all we are about to see. My favorite part of the order (within Section 1):

    (B) to be a current or former government official, or a person acting for or on behalf of such an official, who is responsible for or complicit in, or has directly or indirectly engaged in:

    (1) corruption, including the misappropriation of state assets, the expropriation of private assets for personal gain, corruption related to government contracts or the extraction of natural resources, or bribery;

    That rings some very big Uranium bells for me, at least, and is broad enough to capture a large variety, of shall we say, “Clintonesque” activities.


    Executive Order Blocking the Property of Persons Involved in Serious Human Rights Abuse or Corruption
    Posted on December 25, 2017 by sundance

    The Executive Order issued last week, targeting fraud and international corruption, is a who’s-who list of closely associated Clinton Foundation (CGI) donors. Yup, something definitely happening… and using “Global Magnitsky Designationsis as subtle as a brick through a window.

    [​IMG]

    I, DONALD J. TRUMP, President of the United States of America, find that the prevalence and severity of human rights abuse and corruption that have their source, in whole or in substantial part, outside the United States, such as those committed or directed by persons listed in the Annex to this order, have reached such scope and gravity that they threaten the stability of international political and economic systems.

    Human rights abuse and corruption undermine the values that form an essential foundation of stable, secure, and functioning societies; have devastating impacts on individuals; weaken democratic institutions; degrade the rule of law; perpetuate violent conflicts; facilitate the activities of dangerous persons; and undermine economic markets. The United States seeks to impose tangible and significant consequences on those who commit serious human rights abuse or engage in corruption, as well as to protect the financial system of the United States from abuse by these same persons.

    I therefore determine that serious human rights abuse and corruption around the world constitute an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security, foreign policy, and economy of the United States, and I hereby declare a national emergency to deal with that threat.


    I hereby determine and order:

    Section 1. (a) All property and interests in property that are in the United States, that hereafter come within the United States, or that are or hereafter come within the possession or control of any United States person of the following persons are blockedand may not be transferred, paid, exported, withdrawn, or otherwise dealt in: (cont.)

    Sec. 2. The unrestricted immigrant and nonimmigrant entry into the United Statesof aliens determined to meet one or more of the criteria in section 1 of this order would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, and the entry of such persons into the United States, as immigrants or nonimmigrants, is hereby suspended. (cont.)

    Sec. 7. For those persons whose property and interests in property are blocked pursuant to this order who might have a constitutional presence in the United States, I find that because of the ability to transfer funds or other assets instantaneously, prior notice to such persons of measures to be taken pursuant to this order would render those measures ineffectual. I therefore determine that for these measures to be effective in addressing the national emergency declared in this order, there need be no prior notice of a listing or determination made pursuant to this order. (cont.)

    Sec. 8. The Secretary of the Treasury, in consultation with the Secretary of State, is hereby authorized to take such actions, including adopting rules and regulations, and to employ all powers granted to me by IEEPA and the Act as may be necessary to implement this order and section 1263(a) of the Act with respect to the determinations provided for therein. The Secretary of the Treasury may, consistent with applicable law, redelegate any of these functions to other officers and agencies of the United States. All agencies shall take all appropriate measures within their authority to implement this order.

    Sec. 9. The Secretary of State is hereby authorized to take such actions, including adopting rules and regulations, and to employ all powers granted to me by IEEPA, the INA, and the Act as may be necessary to carry out section 2 of this order and, in consultation with the Secretary of the Treasury, the reporting requirement in section 1264(a) of the Act with respect to the reports provided for in section 1264(b)(2) of that Act. The Secretary of State may, consistent with applicable law, redelegate any of these functions to other officers and agencies of the United States consistent with applicable law. (cont.)

    Dan Gertler from Congolese diamond mining fame and a major financier of the Clinton Foundation. His main customer and business partner? The company Glencore, one of the world’s largest mining commodity trading firms. Founded by Marc Rich, who was on the FBI’s most wanted list for 10 years for violating sanctions on Iran and other such corruption, for which he fled the US. Rich fled the US in 1983, indicted on charges of sanctions-busting, fraud and tax evasion, and accused of arms dealing. After years on the FBI’s 10 most wanted list, he was pardoned by Bill Clinton –after his wife gave $450,000 to newly formed Clinton Library foundation- in the final hours of his presidency. Bought out of the company in 1994, Rich died in Switzerland in 2013 (LINK). But his business partners, lawyers, advisers and friends have showered millions of dollars on the Clintons in the decade and a half following the scandal. (LINK)

    ♦BOL MEL, Benjamin
    (a.k.a. BOL MEL KUOL, Benjamin; a.k.a. BOL MOL KUOT, Benjamin; a.k.a. BOL, Benjamin; a.k.a.

    Benjamin Bol Mel, principal advisor to the president of South Sudan, one of the most corrupt countries in the world. Hillary Clinton spent years vowing to defend the rights of children worldwide — in 2012, she railed against “modern-day slavery” in the introduction to a State Department report on human trafficking that took aim at the “unlawful recruitment or use of children” by armed forces. Yet she does not appear to have publicly explained her role in allowing South Sudan and other countries to receive military support despite using children as combatants. In fact, the State Department played a central role in issuing the controversial waivers, according to two sources, including a former State Department official. With strong U.S. support, South Sudan became an independent country while Hillary Clinton was secretary of state — and soon spiraled into a disastrous civil war that involved large numbers of child soldiers.

    Gulnara Karimova, daughter of a former Uzbekistan president, corruption spree a mile wide. Another donor to the Clinton Foundation. (Reuters) “a top foreign policy adviser to the foundation sought guidance from the State Department on former President Bill Clinton’s interactions with people including Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, Russian government officials and business leaders, and Gulnara Karimova, the socialite daughter of Uzbekistan’s late president. The emails offer a glimpse of the intricate relationship between a private charity with a broad global mission and the State Department under the leadership of a secretary who is married to a former president. (LINK)

    [​IMG]

    I just selected some names at random (from the annex) to highlight above. The Full List from the Treasury Department, shows the majority of these names connected to the Bill and Hillary Clinton; via Bill Clinton’s terms in office, and later his travels while Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State.

    Most of the names have either a direct (personal), or indirect (company or country), financial connection to the Clinton Foundation.


    I have a sense this is a precursor (something akin to a rock thrown into a pile of leaves to catch attention) for something much more significant.

    Popcorn Worthy – President Trump Has Rejected McCabe’s Terms…
    Posted on December 25, 2017 by sundance

    To put a fine point on the anticipatory fireworks for mid-January, let us remind ourselves of what can be anticipated when everyone gets back to DC from the holiday break.

    [​IMG]

    Following a week of growing pressure and sunlight, last week Asst. FBI Director Andrew “Andy” McCabe used The Washington Post -the PR transmission media of the Deep State Intelligence Community- to announce his career saving terms. Essentially McCabe presented the deal that he would leave office in March, in exchange for no returning fire.

    President Trump, immediately spotting the intent of the public resignation announcement, responded by saying on Twitter: “NO DEAL“.


    On January 15th, 2018, the Department of Justice Office of Inspector General Michael Horowitz will deliver approximately 1.2 million pages of documentation and evidence gathered in the year-long investigation into the politicization of the DOJ and FBI, by senior leadership and upper-level career leadership lawyers and bureaucrats.

    IG Horowitz, having utilized the OIG’s vast 500+ investigative agents, is giving that preliminary evidence -in advance of pending full report- to the congressional committee in charge of DOJ/FBI oversight: House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte. –OUTLINED HERE


    [​IMG]

    So by mid-January the House Judiciary Committee will have massive investigative documentation surrounding Andrew McCabe, James Comey, Loretta Lynch, Sally Yates, and all of the top-tier team members around them for all of their principle activity throughout the past few years; with emphasis on 2016.

    Put another way, Andrew McCabe, is going to be in FULL SUNLIGHT on or around January 15th, 2018, for any misconduct.

    That explains the transparent reason for McCabe offering terms. However, the content of that year-long investigation is also the transparent reason for President Trump refusing McCabe’s terms.

    In addition to McCabe, and depending on how well they have covered their political tracks, James Comey, Loretta Lynch, Sally Yates, and all of the top officials -lawyers mostly- within the FBI and DOJ will be part of that investigative release.

    Depending on IG release content, there will also be downstream officials who will have likely taken action, or positioned themselves with prior public releases of intelligence information (ie. narratives), containing historic support toward the actions taken by those top-tier FBI and DOJ officials.

    Those downstream Deep State positions include CIA John Brennan, DNI James Clapper, and all of the officials contained in known communication therein:

    [​IMG]

    In addition to Horowitz, and generally overlooked by media, there has been another internal FBI and DOJ task force quietly gathering information over the Intelligence Community, including those qualified to receive “classified intelligence” within congress, since July/August 2016.

    There’s no doubt the “Leak Task Force” has been monitoring all of the committee actions and releases by people they are suspecting of leaks. There’s a solid argument to be made that several leaks that led to false media reporting were actually part of task-force sting operations intended to expose those leakers.

    Thankfully, no-one was paying much attention to either the IG investigation or the leak task-force until recently. The MSM completely overlooked their existence until early December reports on FBI conduct indicated the IG had not only collected information, but the investigative discoveries actually led to damage-control reactions by the DOJ and FBI.

    Examples of damage-control include reassignments of: FBI counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok; FBI/DOJ lawyer, Lisa Page; DOJ Deputy Attorney, Bruce Ohr; and FBI Chief Legal Counsel James Baker.

    These moves, especially the reassignment of FBI’s top lawyer James Baker, indicate the severity of the information gathered by the Inspector General. These are not insignificant personnel shifts. They indicate a much bigger issue is within the IG investigation that currently visible. Hence, current reactions from former officials begin to make sense.

    Merry Christmas.

    Me too, but I am seeing things being put into motion that I have never seen before.
    The asset forfeiture for corruption EO is brilliant IMO. The best way to take down swamp scum like the klintons is to wipe out their streams of funding and confiscate their known assets. The human rights part of the same EO will cover the absolute travesty that was the rape and plundering of Haiti will stretch to the bush crime family also.

    These things look pretty well thought out. Fingers crossed!

    ‘Crooked Hillary Pile Of Garbage’: POTUS Trump UNLEASHES Over Report Suggesting Fusion GPS Dossier Triggered Surveillance
    December 26, 2017 by Joshua Caplan 47 Comments
    President Trump took to Twitter Tuesday morning to blast the FBI over a “Fox and Friends,” report suggesting the bureau used the unverified Fusion GPS dossier to spy on transition officials.

    [​IMG]

    “WOW, @foxandfrlends “Dossier is bogus. Clinton Campaign, DNC funded Dossier. FBI CANNOT (after all of this time) VERIFY CLAIMS IN DOSSIER OF RUSSIA/TRUMP COLLUSION. FBI TAINTED.” And they used this Crooked Hillary pile of garbage as the basis for going after the Trump Campaign!”, tweeted President Trump Tuesday.

    45% of Americans voted for Hillary. Trump is wisely going slow to educate these nimrods.
    We all know that going slowly will not help except to give us the moral high ground that liberals love lies and refuse to accept the truth - AND SO THEY ARE WITHOUT EXCUSE.

    It is unfortunate that the effort necessary to connect the dots so to speak for the blind and deaf Hillary voters is so extensive. I follow this stuff daily and need to re-read it and read related materials so I can understand the implications of these actions and revelations. Meanwhile, most of the citizenry remains unaware and will cry "foul" when any action is taken They are completely in the dark about their precious Clintons, Bushes and Obamas.

    Same boat. Might add contrast this to when GWB came into office after slick Willie. Everything was just swept under the rug since it would be unpresidential to pursue and the media would make GWB look like the bad guy for wasting the peoples time instead of doing important work. Trump has already done peoples work and is building the case in mostly background - great strategy.

    Heh, I don't know who she is but she was clearly not happy with the way that interview went.
    She got more sick looking as it went on and she couldn't turn the subject back to her scripted lies.

    Winning!

    Nah, still fake news, they said there are a bunch of good men and women in the FBI. There aren't...there are only a bunch of federal regime parasites that should be forced to find gainful employment.

    Wonder what was with the weirdo broad in West Palm Beach giggling and snapping her fingers at around 2:08 while the dude was talking about purging the Federal Bureau of Inclinations.

    The comments in that clip are gold. "holy crap, did hell.freeze over"

    Now I see why the GOPe is suddenly backing our president. They know he is not going to taken out any more.
    Perfect time for the spineless to get on the train.

    EDIT: NOW WE ALSO KNOW WHY ERIC HOLDER RECENTLY CAME OUT FROM UNDER HIS ROCK AND STARTED FLINGING SHIT.

    BREAKING: Senator Lindsey Graham Just Confirmed The Steele Dossier Was Used For 2016 FISA Warrant…
    Posted on December 30, 2017 by sundance


    Everyone suspected the sketchy Steele Dossier was what corrupt FBI and DOJ officials used to get the October 2016 FISA warrant against Trump. FBI and DOJ officials refuse to answer that question publicly.

    Despite a hundred different ways congressional investigators have asked the question, and despite numerous on-camera questions to FBI and DOJ officials about the 2016 FISA process, no-one had definitively confirmed the Christopher Steele ‘Russian Dossier’ was the underlying evidence for the 2016 FISA application to gain wiretaps and electronic surveillance upon presidential candidate Donald Trump. UNTIL NOW.

    Senator Lindsey Graham just confirmed the sketchy Steele Dossier was used to get the wiretap and surveillance warrant from the FISA court. Brian Kilmead understood what he was hearing was serious, but didn’t quite catch the specific gravity of it. Watch at 04:10:


    .

    …The back-story to the FISA warrant is the cornerstone. The back-story contains both the FBI and the DOJ scheme. Expose it, remove it, and the entire ‘muh Russia conspiracy’ collapses under the weight of sunlight…

    This is critical and important because the specific use of the Steele Dossier underpins the BIG UGLY and exposes the entire top-tier apparatus of the FBI Counterintelligence Division (Peter Strzok, Bill Priestap, James Baker, Andrew McCabe) and the DOJ National Security Division (John Carlin, Stuart Evans, Mary McCord and Sally Yates), as well as DOJ Bruce Ohr and FBI lawyer Lisa Page directly to “conspiracy” charges.

    The 2016 FBI counterintelligence operation was surveillance on the Trump Campaign and was thinly disguised under the fraudulent auspices of a FISA warrant, sold as a defense of U.S. democracy from Russia, which permitted the wiretaps and surveillance etc.

    The DOJ involvement surrounds legal arguments, processing of FISA applications, and use of the legal system to support the FBI operation with actionable legal framing (against Trump). The DOJ National Security Division carried out that collaboration with the FBI.


    [​IMG]

    Tablet Mag did a deep dive into the Fusion-GPS connection to the creation of the Steele Dossier; and more specifically how Fusion-GPS head Glenn Simpson and his wife Mary Jacoby were instrumental in getting the dossier assembled and into the hands of the White House prior to the DOJ and FBI applying for the FISA warrant – SEE HERE.

    Tablet Mag outlines how Mary Jacoby even bragged about getting the “Russiagate” narrative started:

    A Tablet investigation using public sources to trace the evolution of the now-famous dossier suggests that central elements of the Russiagate scandal emerged not from the British ex-spy Christopher Steele’s top-secret “sources” in the Russian government—which are unlikely to exist separate from Russian government control—but from a series of stories that Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson and his wife Mary Jacoby co-wrote for TheWall Street Journal well before Fusion GPS existed, and Donald Trump was simply another loud-mouthed Manhattan real estate millionaire.

    Understanding the origins of the “Steele dossier” is especially important because of what it tells us about the nature and the workings of what its supporters would hopefully describe as an ongoing campaign to remove the elected president of the United States.

    […] In a Facebook post from June 24, 2017, that Tablet has seen in screenshots, Jacoby claimed that her husband deserves the lion’s share of credit for Russiagate. (She has not replied to repeated requests for comment.) “It’s come to my attention that some people still don’t realize what Glenn’s role was in exposing Putin’s control of Donald Trump,” Jacoby wrote. “Let’s be clear. Glenn conducted the investigation. Glenn hired Chris Steele. Chris Steele worked for Glenn.”

    This assertion is hardly a simple assertion of family pride; it goes directly to the nature of what became known as the “Steele dossier,” on which the Russiagate narrative is founded. (read more)

    The Tablet-Mag outline shows the distinct trail of the finished Steele Dossier entering into the White House and how President Obama likely saw and reviewed the content.

    However, missing from this report is an origination angle even more nefarious.

    Remember, previous media reporting -in conjunction with Clinton campaign admissions- have confirmed the DNC and Clinton Campaign financed Fusion-GPS through their lawyers within Perkins Coie. Fusion then hired Nellie Ohr the wife of DOJ Deputy Bruce Ohr who thereafter sub-contracted with retired British MI6 agent Christopher Steele to write/research/provide credibility for “the dossier.”

    The dates here are important because they tell a story.

    The origin of the Clinton effort with Fusion-GPS was April 2016. That’s the same month Fusion hired Nellie Ohr, wife of DOJ Deputy Bruce Ohr, to gather opposition research on candidate Trump. It would be most likely that Nellie Ohr was in contact with Christopher Steele. DOJ Deputy Attorney Bruce Ohr was later demoted for his unreported contacts with Christopher Steele and Fusion-GPS founder Glenn Simpson in October 2016; the same month the FISA warrant was granted.

    However, there was another event in this April 2016 timeline which enhances the trail of the Dossier origination. [Hat Tip Katica] Check this out:

    In April 2016 Mary Jacoby shows up on White House visitor logs meeting with President Obama officials. In April 2016 the Clinton Campaign and DNC hired Fusion-GPS to organize the Russia research, that later became known as the “Steele Dossier”.

    [​IMG](link to White House Logs)

    The wife of Glenn Simpson (Fusion GPS), Mary B. Jacoby, with years of Russia-angled reporting –including Donald Trumpvisits the White House in April 2016, at the same time as the DNC and Clinton hire Fusion GPS to conduct the opposition research on Donald Trump, surrounding Russia?

    This timeline is entirely too obvious to be coincidental.

    Expand slightly and consider:

    April: Mary Jacoby, wife of Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson, visits the White House. The Clinton Campaign and DNC then hire Fusion GPS to conduct ‘Opposition Research’, with a Russian emphasis. Fusion GPS then hires Nellie Ohr who specializes in Russian-centric counterintelligence. Nellie Ohr then contacts MI6 agent Christopher Steele to write a Russian Dossier. A month later, May 2016: Nellie Ohr’s husband inside the DOJ, Bruce Ohr, is then working with FBI counterintelligence head Peter Strzok. By June 2016: Peter Strzok, Bruce Ohr and DOJ Attorney Lisa Page then apply for the first FISA warrant.

    [June 24th, 2017, Mary Jacoby appears on Facebook taking credit for the origination of the Russiagate narrative.]

    This timeline is so transparent it’s deafening.

    [More from the Tablet] Simpson and Jacoby had ID’d Manafort as a world-class sleazeball and they were right. A slick Georgetown Law grad running in GOP circles since the Reagan campaign, Manafort used his talents and connections to get paid by some very bad people. I would only add here that, in my personal experience, journalists are not in the habit of forgetting major stories they’ve written, especially stories with a character like Manafort at the center.

    So when the Trump campaign named Paul Manafort as its campaign convention manager on March 28, 2016, you can bet that Simpson and Jacoby’s eyes lit up. And as it happened, at the exact same time that Trump hired Manafort, Fusion GPS was in negotiations with Perkins Coie, the law firm representing the Clinton campaign and the DNC, to see if there was interest in the firm continuing the opposition research on the Trump campaign they had started for the Washington Free Beacon.

    Mary Jacoby and Glenn Simpson – Fusion GPS


    If the counterintelligence FISA warrant was obtained through deception, misleading/manipulated information, or fraud; and that warrant is what led to the wiretapping and surveillance of candidate Donald Trump and General Flynn; and that warrant was authorized by FISA Court Judge Contreras –who was the judge in Flynn’s case, and is now recused– the entire tenuous FBI and DOJ operation begins to collapse and the outline of a “conspiracy” becomes clearly evident.

    The back-story to the FISA warrant is the cornerstone. The back-story contains both the FBI and the DOJ scheme. Expose it, remove it, and the entire ‘muh Russia’ conspiracy fraud collapses under the weight of sunlight.

    The National Security Division (NSD) inside the DOJ was where all of the collaboration appears to have taken place. The NSD is a sub-division within the DOJ similar to the Counterintelligence Division within the FBI.

    Using the National Security Division (NSD) inside the DOJ presents a specifically useful angle for the purposes of hiding duplicitous, unethical and unlawful conduct. Why? Well, here’s where the mirrored entry starts and also where it gets interesting.

    [​IMG](click image to enlarge)

    Responding to a 2015 request by the DOJ Office of Inspector General, Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates told the internal watchdog they cannot investigate the National Security Division.

    That’s right, there is essentially no oversight on any activity happening inside the NSD.

    In 2015 the OIG requested oversight and it was Sally Yates who responded with a lengthy 58 page legal explanation saying, essentially, ‘nope – not allowed.’ (PDF HERE) All of the DOJ is subject to oversight, except the NSD.

    The Department of Justice’s own Inspector General (currently Michael Horowitz who opened a January 2017 investigation into the 2016 politicization of the FBI and DOJ) is not allowed to investigate anything that happens within the NSD branch of the Department of Justice.

    See the ‘useful arrangement‘?

    Yeah, Funny that.

    So it might not be so coincidental the players used on the DOJ side of “Operation Trump” all seem to come from within the National Security Division.

    I digress, but remember, I said pay attention to the September/October 2016 time-frame.

    DOJ Deputy Attorney Bruce Ohr was “demoted” in the summer of 2017 after the Inspector General discovered unreported 2016 contacts between Ohr and Russian Dossier author Christopher Steele, as well as contact with Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson, in October 2016. [Also remember Bruce’s wife, Nellie Ohr, was hired by Fusion GPS in April 2016 to start the research that ultimately ended with the sketchy dossier.]

    Also in October 2016, right around the time the DOJ lawyers formatted the FBI information (Steele Dossier etc.) for the FISA Application, the head of the NSD, Asst. Attorney General John P Carlin, left his job.

    It would have specifically been John Carlin’s responsibility to ensure a valid legal basis for the FISA application submitted to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court.

    Remember also, the July 2016 application was denied, a rarity. Therefore, if the second application used ‘sketchy’ enhancements – for the matter of accountability it no longer mattered because Asst. Attorney General John Carlin was headed to the exits.

    After NSD head John Carlin left the DOJ he was replaced with Acting Asst. Attorney General Mary McCord. [*Remember this*] Also note “Stuart Evans”.

    [​IMG]

    Hopefully I haven’t lost you yet.

    Summary of October 2016 so far: ♦Bruce Ohr is meeting with Christopher Steele and Glenn Simpson and not telling his bosses. ♦The DOJ National Security Division submits FISA application for FBI use (likely using dossier). ♦The Head of DOJ National Security Division, John Carlin, quits.

    Wait, it gets better.

    I’m not making this up.

    Immediately after the second FISA warrant is approved,… in the period where John Carlin has given his notice of intent to leave, but not yet left… Inside those specific two weeks,… On September 26th, 2016, the National Security Division of the DOJ tells the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) they have been breaking the law; and the NSD specifically informs the court they have been using FISA applications to spy on their domestic political opposition.

    Wait, what?

    You’ve… just…. got… to… be… kidding… right?


    Nope. LOOK:

    View this document on Scribd

    We don’t discover this September/October 2016 DOJ admission until May 2017.

    That’s when the FISA court decision on the self-reporting was released to the public, declassified and we find the details outlined within the court ruling.

    The NSD admits the details how, under President Obama, the Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch Department of Justice used FISA applications to monitor political opponents, unmasked conversations to discover content, and also disclosed this has been happening for SIX YEARS prior to the beginning of the July 2016 joint FBI/DOJ “Trump Operation”.

    Now, SERIOUSLY, does anyone doubt what the October 2016 FISA warrant was about?

    You can read the 99-page FISA court ruling above –LINK HERE

    Recapping September/October 2016: ♦Bruce Ohr and Peter Strzok are secretly meeting with Christopher Steele (Dossier) and Glenn Simpson (Fusion GPS). ♦The NSD is submitting a second FISA application to using the Steele Dossier. ♦The Justice Department National Security Division head announces his intention to leave the NSD. ♦And the DOJ-NSD inform the FISA Court they have weaponized prior FISA warrants for political operations.

    "...every prosecutor has a duty to the court..." Ya don't say Linda.

    Linda Graham now says he's Trump's bud, CONgress is political theater, Dick Durbin is his but buddy, ...and elements within the FBI knowingly and willfully doctored up a turd to get a FISA warrant to spy on a political opponent that just happened to be running for the office of president.

    Yeah, that wasn't weird.

    The Stunning Truth Proving The FBI and DOJ Corruption Will Come Out…
    Posted on January 1, 2018 by sundance

    There’s a lot of people worried the sheer scale and totality of the FBI and DOJ corruption will be buried by the Swamp scum. I’m not one of them. As a ninja level cynic who has spent so much time investigating the deep weeds of DC corruption, this time I can see a difference.

    [​IMG]

    The Bigger media voices will eventually catch up to the story. Right now the scale of the story is so large, and the consequences so damaging to the Republic, they are scared to call it out… but that won’t last too much longer. Unless they are genuinely all paid political operatives of the UniParty, by the end of this month the sunlight will be so intense their worries about losing invites to the best cocktail parties will be overcome by the enormity of the truth.

    When the righteous march past the praetorian guard media carrying pitchforks, feathers and buckets of brutally obvious truth; yes, even the ‘CONservative’ professional media guardians will have to admit they can’t defend the protected class from this one. Their own need for relevance will mean they’ll eventually admit, the baby is damn ugly.

    If a little corner of the internet can lay out the raw data, and all of that data only points in one direction, yes, the total “they” (media, congress, and our President) all know this same stuff you have been reading. More importantly, as uncomfortable as admissions might be, they know it is real and they know what it means.

    If we can put it together, so can they.

    So too can Robert Mueller. He knows.


    [​IMG]

    Special Counsel Robert Mueller knows how Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, Andrew Weissman, Jeannie Rhee, Aaron Zebley and all of the other participants got put on his team. He knows how, and he knows why. Mueller might not want to admit he knows, because that means accepting the scale corruption within his beloved institutions. It also means accepting his friends James Comey, Andrew McCabe, James Baker, Sally Yates and Loretta Lynch are corrupt political agents.

    Perhaps Mueller too is a political agent; regardless, he knows what we know; and we know that he knows what we know.


    Robert Mueller knows he can no longer do the ‘willfully blind‘ schtick toward FBI Chief Legal Counsel James Baker because the truth is too transparent. He’d look silly trying. Even if Mueller tried to defend him, he’d have a hard time burying the truth to do so. There’s just too much of it visible.

    Mueller knows why his assembled team used deception to gain all of the Transition team emails; when he walks into the room of lawyers he knows they can’t talk about it, lawyers never do, but he knows. And they know he knows. It’s all corrupt. It’s all coming out. The entire cabal know there’s too much already known to be able to spin or hide it all.

    Right now they are spending 90% (or more) of their time discussing damage control and how to sell their way out of this mess. The energy they are now spending trying to show a “Russian Conspiracy” is smaller than nil. Some team members are still trying to give angles of “if we do this”, and “if we do that”, etc. You know the routine, a good defense is a good offense. However, even in their offensive exit proposals, their time is constructing a plausible escape. We know that; he knows that; and he knows we know that.

    What are they left with?

    Positioning.

    That’s it.

    Positioning for the best exit, doing the least amount of damage to themselves and other professional swamp dwellers in the process. That’s their current energy expenditure; figuring out the exit strategy.




    [​IMG]

    The House Judiciary Committee (Bob Goodlatte) is soon to get details. That’s the rightful place where ultimately the best decisions will be made. Chairman Goodlatte and his Senate counterpart Chairman Grassley, know this is their moment. Neither of them smoke cigars.

    House Intel Chairman Devin Nunes will also get the details from Inspector General Michael Horowitz. He’s just about appropriately pissed-off-enough to do some real damage to all those people who besmirched his character back in March and April 2017. The larger DC intelligence community is scared-to-death of Devin Nunes.

    Ignore Senate Intel Chairman Richard Burr. He will keep his mouth shut and try to avoid cameras now – when possible. He’s a UniParty defender, and he does smoke cigars. ie: he’s as corrupt as they come and swims in the deep swamp with the Decepticons. Burr’s Corinthian Wing-back will remain empty; his current preference will be to read about what he’s supposed to say from the Washington Post or New York Times bi-lines.

    Additionally, one of the larger reasons to feel confidence is from Trey Gowdy (aka Rooster head) being given the Chairmanship of the House Oversight Committee. His placement there will explain everything y’all need to know about his recent rather stunning increases in personal wealth. Go look it up, you’ll see. Gowdy was purchased by the Uniparty as the replacement for Jason Chaffetz, who was the replacement for Darryl Issa.

    Rooster-head’s job is now to lead the Chaff and Countermeasures routine. That’s why his personal wealth jumped so significantly. (Again, go look it up.) That’s also why his first official duty was to undermine Devin Nunes yesterday in the Washington Post.

    Gowdy is on the other side. The UniParty purchased him. Don’t forget Gowdy is the House version of Ted Cruz so he was always predisposed in that direction. Never forget that. Look at everything Gowdy does as intended to distract you from anything that matters and it will all make sense to you – Clear Eyes. Rooster proved his worthiness for the UniParty while leading the Benghazi “Special Committee” to clear Clinton.

    Thankfully the White Hats have set this up to allow Rooster-Head to crow poetically, yet not be in a position to do any substantive damage. [Though he might try to get some republicans wiped out in the 2018 election. So, watch out for that.]


    As long as there’s no calling for a “Special Committee” the White Hats are in good shape. Beware of anyone who starts demanding that in the next month. Don’t fall for that trick. Also avoid anything to do with issues headed to the House Oversight Committee; it’s UniParty Command HQ.

    Keep an eye on Jim Jordan. He’s a White Hat. He’s turned down the indulgences from the UniParty. As a ninja cynic I’ve got to admit he’s one of few good and decent people in DC. Rare breed. DC hates him. That’s good.

    Sometime this month, after the initial Inspector General Michael Horowitz release, House Judiciary Chair Bob Goodlatte and Senate Judiciary Chair Chuck Grassley will likely call for a Special Counsel to investigate the upper-level management of the FBI and DOJ. Support that approach. The SC can quickly put a Grand Jury together and start presenting the IG investigative evidence, as well as enforceable subpoenas for witnesses.

    There’s a boat-load of different issues here:

    • The unlawful exoneration of Hillary Clinton by political operatives in the DOJ/FBI.
    • The unlawful use of the FISA court for political spy operations by the DOJ/FBI.
    • The unlawful use of the Dept of Justice National Security Division. For weaponized political benefit.
    • The unlawful use of the FBI Counterintelligence Division. For weaponized political benefit.
    • The unlawful use of a Special Counsel (Mueller) investigation to hide the conspiracy.
    I could go on, but you get the picture. The corruption is so deep it’s almost unfathomable; almost beyond comprehension. Almost. The enormity of it is also part of the defense strategy for the participants within it.

    All of that minutia is part of the Special Counsel argument that will surface in the next 30 days. While that Special Counsel argument is ongoing, Nunes, Goodlatte and Grassley can use the Judiciary and Intelligence Committees to present to the world everything you’ve already read HERE.

    And lastly, the main source of my confidence that all of this will come out…. Everyone mentioned directly or by association is also reading this sentence.

    Happy New Year.

    Fusion GPS Tries, and Fails, To Distance Themselves From FBI FISA Origin…
    Posted on January 3, 2018 by sundance

    It’s every man and woman for themselves as the collective groups of architects behind the entire FBI Counterintelligence Operation, that brought us the 18-month-long ‘vast Russian conspiracy’ narrative, now attempt to back-track from all previous assertions.

    Two days ago we shared very strong confidence the joint FBI (counterintelligence) and DOJ (National Security Division) scheme was going to come out. The reason is simple, they left too big a trail of factual and provable evidence of their activity.

    [​IMG]

    It is not coincidental that just as scrutiny over the 2016 FBI FISA court application gains traction in congress and media, the insider intelligence community started leaking to the New York Times about the insignificance of the Steele Dossier as it relates to the FISA court application. Look, over there, it was George Papadopoulos; not the DOJ FISA construct that was used by the FBI to launch surveillance upon candidate Trump. Swear.

    Laughable.

    Predictable.


    For more than a year the Steele Dossier was the most valuable evidence to the Russian narrative; then, poof, in the blink-of-an-eye, not so much – it became a risk. Funny that. The transparency of motive is brutally obvious, too many FBI and DOJ people at risk now. The trail is too easy to follow.

    It was only a matter of time before Fusion-GPS spoke up toward the same goal of track-covering. Yesterday Glenn Simpson and Peter Fritsch [Hi Glenn] posted an Op-Ed in the New York Times attempting further distance.


    According to Glenn and Pete:

    […] “We don’t believe the Steele dossier was the trigger for the F.B.I.’s investigation into Russian meddling. As we told the Senate Judiciary Committee in August, our sources said the dossier was taken so seriously because it corroborated reports the bureau had received from other sources, including one inside the Trump camp.” (more)

    Additionally, Fusion GPS also claims they never spoke to the FBI: “We did not speak to the F.B.I. and haven’t since.”, which is bizarre given the previous reports of Glenn Simpson talking to FBI Counterintelligence Agent Peter Strzok. Isn’t Peter Strzok in the FBI?

    Conspicuously absent from the Fusion Op-Ed is any mention of Glenn Simpson’s wife, Mary B Jacoby, and her involvement therein. Additionally their explanations are devoid of the prior meeting or contact with DOJ Deputy Attorney Bruce Ohr, the guy who was demoted for meeting with them without telling anyone. Another curious missing detail is Simpson, Jacoby and Fritsch hiring Bruce Ohr’s wife Nellie Ohr to work on the “Trump project”.

    Nope. Nothing to see here, move along, move along.

    Unfortunately for Glenn and Pete the part about them saying the dossier was taken seriously because it corroborated reports the FBI had from another source, “including one inside the Trump camp”, leads to Business Insider asking questions about that source.

    Who does that corroborative source turn out to be? Oh yeah:

    […] a person with knowledge of Fusion’s testimony and the op-ed told Business Insider on Tuesday. … it was a reference to George Papadopoulos. (link)

    So the current narrative is: the FBI didn’t likely use the Steele Dossier in the FISA court application, but rather the FBI’s confirmation of a source within the Steele Dossier, as given by the author of the Dossier, was likely used in the FISA court application.

    See how that works?

    The “dossier” didn’t originate the FISA application to conduct surveillance on candidate Donald Trump; the source (Papadopoulos) quoted “inside the dossier” originated the FISA application. Let’s play a game; it’s called “Semantics”.

    Except there’s another problem.

    Stuff happens when people begin the ‘every-man-for-himself‘ routine; the central narrative control collapses.

    Simultaneous to Fusions’ Op-Ed protestations, the former Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, appears on CNN to say, he never heard of George Papadopoulos – and he should know, because his office put out the 2016/2017 Joint Analysis Report. That’s the 17-agency (eyeroll) definitive story on all things ‘Muh Russian Conspiracy’.

    So now what?

    Not what, “who”?

    Yeah, who?

    Who’d he throw it to?

    I dunno.

    “Third Base.”

    Fusion-GPS’s, Glenn Simpson, is playing Abbott to ODNI, James Clapper’s, Costello.

    Why? Because the entire back-story that centers around the Steele Dossier, how it was assembled (Clinton Camp) and how it was used collaboratively by the DOJ (National Security Division) and FBI (Counterintelligence unit), is a case study in how to mislead a FISA court to gain an unlawful warrant to wiretap and conduct surveillance on political opponents.

    And I remind you, that approach is what the former Obama head of the DOJ National Security Division, Asst. Attorney General John P Carlin, admitted to the FISA court weeks after the Trump wiretap and surveillance warrant was issued.

    A newly released court order from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) found that the National Security Agency, under former President Obama, routinely violated American privacy protections while scouring through overseas intercepts and failed to disclose the extent of the problems until the final days before Donald Trump was elected president last fall. In describing the violations, the FISA court said the illegal searches conducted by the NSA under Obama were “widespread” and created a “very serious Fourth Amendment issue.” These new discoveries come from a recently unsealed FISA court document dated April 26, 2017 and center around a hearing dated October 26, 2017, just days before the 2016 election, in which the FISA court apparently learned for the first time of “widespread” and illegal spying on American citizens by the NSA under the Obama administration.

    As the Inspector General investigation continues: ♦FBI Agent Peter Strzok has been reassigned to the HR department. ♦FBI Lawyer Lisa Page, personal legal aide to FBI Asst. Director, Andrew “Andy” McCabe, has been returned to the DOJ side. ♦FBI Chief Legal Counsel James Baker has been relieved of his duties by FBI Director Christopher Wray. ♦FBI Asst Director Andrew McCabe has announced his intent to retire in March.

    All of these FBI personnel moves are a preliminary outcomes of the still ongoing Office of Inspector General (OIG) investigation. All of this has been reported. None of these moves are speculative. All of these geese are cooked. However, this is just one side of the 2016 political “Trump operation”, the FBI investigative Counterintelligence Division side.

    The other side, the legal side of the Trump operation, stems from the National Security Division of the DOJ. A FISA application is submitted from the DOJ-NSD for use by the FBI Counterintelligence team. Sunlight upon this side of the collaboration is the reason for all of the current distraction narratives.

    [​IMG]

    While both sides of the corrupt political apparatus participated in the illegal unmasking and leaking, the documentation and activity behind the origin of the FISA application is the current ‘hot potato’ no-one wants any association with.

    The FISA application(s) and the subsequent wiretapping and surveillance collection, along with the unmasking that followed, is the focus of House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes.


    Sometime this month, after the initial Inspector General Michael Horowitz release, House Judiciary Chair Bob Goodlatte and Senate Judiciary Chair Chuck Grassley will likely call for a Special Counsel to investigate the upper-level management of the FBI and DOJ.

    We should support that approach. The SC can quickly put a Grand Jury together and start presenting the IG investigative evidence, as well as enforceable subpoenas for witnesses.

    There’s a lot of different down-stream legal issues:

    • The unlawful exoneration of Hillary Clinton by political operatives in the DOJ/FBI.
    • The unlawful destruction of evidence; and the manipulation of investigative protocols to gain a specific and pre-planned political outcome. (Peter Strzok, Andrew McCabe)
    • The unlawful use of the FISA court for political spy operations by the DOJ/FBI.
    • The unlawful use of the Dept of Justice National Security Division. For weaponized political benefit. (Sally Yates, Loretta Lynch, Bruce Ohr)
    • The unlawful use of the FBI Counterintelligence Division. For weaponized political benefit. (James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, James Baker)
    • The unlawful use of a Special Counsel (Mueller) investigation to hide the conspiracy; (James Baker, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, Bruce Ohr, Andrew Weissman, Jeannie Rhee, Aaron Zebley)
    All of the origination details are part of the minutia that will surface in the next 30 days. Devin Nunes, Bob Goodlatte and Chuck Grassley using the Judiciary and Intelligence Committees to collect evidence and tell the public everything outlined HERE and more.

    Three points on Faux today

    1) FBI reopened email investigation (agents stating she committed felony)

    2) document in Repubs hands confirming the dirty dossier was the source of the Trump investigation (everyone knew this but the proof is starting to materialize)

    3) Breaking News - the DOJ has opened a pay to play investigation of the Clinton Foundation

    Hold on to your hats

    There is so much coming down right now it's about impossible to post it all. I think team Trump does this on purpose to overwhelm the state run media who all have trouble trying to focus on anything.
    One thing to remember and why it probably is different this time is Devin Nunes was attacked by leftists and swamp RINO's and forced to recuse himself from the Russia! investigation back in April. Recently he was cleared of all wrongdoing and is back leading the case.

    And he is thoroughly pissed off about being smeared by liars. What could have been a routine investigation politely led by a congresscritter is now being led by a man who wants the scalps of the people who wronged him.
    Stay angry congressman Nunes, stay angry.

    Walls Close In Around DOJ and FBI “Small Group” Participants…
    Posted on January 5, 2018 by sundance

    Several stories broke yesterday:

    ♦Senator Ron Johnson gains copies of the manipulated/edited FBI small group “talking points” that exonerated Hillary Clinton despite overwhelming evidence. Johnson is a Senate Judiciary Committee member and remains focused on those specifics.

    ♦Senator Chuck Grassley has identified that former FBI Director James Comey leaked classified FBI information to the media to gain political leverage. Additional questions are now raised by the Senate Judiciary Chairman.

    [​IMG]

    ♦The FBI has begun a new review of the Clinton Foundation pay-to-play network during Hillary Clinton’s tenure at the State Dept. Investigators are questioning the people within the Clinton foundation about actions taken as a result of donations to the foundation.

    ♦A federal judge has ruled that Fusion GPS must turn over it’s bank records to the House Intelligence Committee. Including records of financial payments to journalists and media outlets to push the Christopher Steele “Dossier” story.

    ♦House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes will be receiving all remainingDOJ documents, without redaction, that pertain to the 2016 DOJ/FBI FISA court application. In addition eight key members of the FBI “small group” will be questioned by the committee.

    ♦The Dept. of Justice it reopening the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email use; and how both Clinton and her aide Huma Abedin used, shared and stored classified documents on their personal servers and devices.


    ♦Paul Manafort sues Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his probe due to a claim of overreach and operating outside the scope of his legal authority from congress.

    Additionally, the DOJ Office of Inspector General, Michael Horowitz, is anticipated to deliver 1.2 million documents, from a year-long investigation into the FBI/DOJ, to House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte on January 15th.

    It is easy to get stuck in the weeds on any individual storyline within the larger network of ongoing investigations. However, the bigger picture is found in the commonality all of these investigations hold.

    The single thread that binds all of these stories together is the political use of the FBI and DOJ by former and current officials within each department….
    In addition to the FBI and DOJ leadership, a small group of around 20 people participated in the weaponization of the FBI Counterintelligence Unit, the DOJ National Security Division, and later the Robert Mueller Special Counsel investigation. All of the investigative headlines surround the former political use of the FBI and DOJ.

    [​IMG]Chairman Devin Nunes (Intelligence Committee), is looking specifically at the unlawful use of federal intelligence agencies for political purposes; including domestic spying operations on political opponents, and the unlawful use of FISA 702(16)(17) captures by operators within all divisions of the intelligence community.

    Chairman Bob Goodlatte (House Judiciary Committee), and Chairman Chuck Grassley (Senate Judicial Committee), both have oversight over the FBI and DOJ. They are looking at the overall political activity of the DOJ and FBI.

    On January 1st I expressed optimism because I can see how this methodical investigative approach makes the most sense. There is a clear plan, a coordinated plan, visible within the sequencing. The current headlines solidify that perspective.

    As Devin Nunes gets specific information from the DOJ and FBI for his overall intelligence investigation, Goodlatte and Grassley continue gathering their information. Directly related to the release of documents to Chairman Nunes, I would advise everyone to remember the ongoing leak investigations and the sting operations as previously cited.

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    In the coming ten days do not be surprised to see numerous leaks to the Washington Post, New York Times or CNN that are the outcome of those continuing operations. Look for a pattern within the leaks. It would not be surprising to see variations (fake news/real leaks) of the same documents used as tracers. All of the inbound information to congress only increases the likelihood of leaks. However, we are also in the phase where the congressional leakers will have to wonder if they are a target.

    Sometime this month, after the initial Inspector General Michael Horowitz release (Jan 15th), House Judiciary Chair Bob Goodlatte and Senate Judiciary Chair Chuck Grassley will likely call for a Special Counsel to investigate the upper-level management of the FBI and DOJ, all divisions.

    We should support that approach. The SC can quickly put a Grand Jury together and start presenting the IG investigative evidence from Horowitz, as well as enforceable subpoenas for witnesses.

    One Bluff Called: Senators Graham and Grassley Send Criminal Referral To DOJ…
    Posted on January 5, 2018 by sundance

    Yup, the walls are closing in.

    In a brilliant move of strategery, Senate Judiciary Chairman, Chuck Grassley, and Senate Judiciary member, Lindsey Graham, send a criminal referral of Christopher Steele to the DOJ for investigation. But things are not what they seem…

    Today Senators Grassley and Graham sent a letter of criminal referral to the Department of Justice, based on information -provided by the FBI- their investigation has uncovered.

    However, the actual motive for the criminal referral is not exactly what it appears.

    [​IMG]

    Highlighting two pertinent passages (emphasis mine) from the New York Times articlewill explain what’s really going on:

    […] Senator Charles E. Grassley of Iowa, chairman of the Judiciary Committee, and Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, a senior committee member, told the Justice Department they had reason to believe that a former British spy, Christopher Steele, lied to federal authorities about his contacts with reporters regarding information in the dossier, and they urged the department to investigate. The committee is running one of three congressional investigations into Russian election meddling, and its inquiry has come to focus, in part, on Mr. Steele’s explosive dossier that purported to detail Russia’s interference and the Trump campaign’s complicity.


    […] The criminal referral appears to make no assessment of the veracity of the dossier’s contents, much of which remains unsubstantiated nearly a year after it became public.

    […] Mr. Grassley’s decision to recommend criminal charges appeared likely to be based on reports of Mr. Steele’s meetings with the F.B.I., which were provided to the committee by the Justice Department in recent weeks.

    It was not clear why, if a crime is apparent in the F.B.I. reports that were reviewed by the Judiciary Committee, the Justice Department had not moved to charge Mr. Steele already.

    The circumstances under which Mr. Steele is alleged to have lied were unclear, as much of the referral was classified. (full article)

    Can you see what is really going on here?

    [​IMG]

    The criminal referral is based on FBI reports of meetings the FBI has given to the Senate Judiciary Committee about the FBI meetings with Christopher Steele.

    Within those FBI reports (presented to the committee) are conflicting statements and accounts that do not align with known evidence.

    The FBI is attributing claims to the meetings with Christopher Steele that do not match known evidence about the Steele Dossier and use therein.

    Remember what Senator Graham said recently about his review of the evidence surrounding the Steele Dossier and how it was used, by the FBI in gaining the FISA warrant? –Refresh Memory Here

    What Grassley and Graham are now doing is forcing the DOJ to reconcile the conflicts between the FBI presentations to the judiciary committee -about the origin of, and their use of, the Steele Dossier- against known evidence.

    Someone is lying
    .

    Graham and Grassley know the motive to lie about the Steele Dossier does not necessarily belong to Christopher Steele. The motive is within the corrupt FBI.

    In order to accurately prove ownership of the the falsehoods Grassley and Graham are saying: ‘If what the FBI says is true then Chris Steele is lying, because the evidence doesn’t support what the FBI previously said to us, and attributed to Christopher Steele’…

    Grassley and Graham are calling the bluff of the FBI.

    “Based on the information contained therein, we are respectfully referring Mr. Steele to you for investigation of potential violations of 18 U.S.C. § 1001, for statements the Committee has reason to believe Mr. Steele made regarding his distribution of information contained.” (link)

    The “information contained therein” is the FBI presentation of statements and evidence the FBI is attributing to Christopher Steele.

    By referring a criminal complaint to the DOJ the Senators are, in essence, forcing the DOJ to outline that material presentations by the FBI, to the committee, were false…. OR, that Christopher Steele is lying. The former is likely, the latter not-so-much.

    Additionally, by asking Rod Rosenstein (DOJ) and Christopher Wray (FBI) to investigate the conflicting evidence and FBI statements Grassley and Graham are also providing political cover for Rosenstein and Wray to showcase the corruption within both the DOJ and the FBI.

    Strategery.

    The walls are closing in.

    I left this message on another board, and I think this is an appropriate time and place to leave it again.

    I want prosecutions and to claw back every single penny each of these traitors has cost us over the last two years! Empty their pensions, take their houses and dachas, tow their cars, make their kids attend public schools or community colleges, place outhouses on their family plots, render their spouses penniless, disconnect their internet, sell their SS #s on the dark web, give their email address to spammers, destroy their family reputations, and adopt out their pets! If these people have anything more than state provided underwear and flip flops, that is more than they deserve!

    GOP Lawmaker: We’ve Got a Series of Investigations Closing in on Hillary Clinton LIKE A NOOSE (Video)
    January 5, 2018 by Jim Hoft 122 Comments
    It’s been an incredible 48 hours.

    1. Nunes gets access to all Fusion GPS documentss & witnesses
    2. Clinton email investigation reopened (ongoing for at least 12 months)
    3. Comey illegal leaks investigation ongoing
    4. Clinton Foundation investigation launched by FBI office in Arkansas
    5. Court rules House Intelligence investigators receive Fusion GPS bank records

    On Friday night Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) joined Lou Dobbs to discuss the recent developments against the Clinton crime family.

    It’s about time.

    [​IMG]

    Via Lou Dobbs Tonight:


    GOP Rep. Matt Gaetz: Without Devin Nunes we would not know about the text messages between Peter Strzok and Lisa Page where they reference an insurance policy to save the American people from their own votes… We’ve got a series of investigations closing in on Hillary Clinton like a noose.

    It’s about time Crooked Hillary faced justice.
