Spygate: Obama Admin Cut Situation Room’s Video Feed During Meetings on Russia Investigation

Comments made by Attorney General William Barr about extraordinary arrangements regarding the original handling of the Russia investigation may take on more significance in light of a previous report showing a high and unusual degree of compartmentalization in the Obama-era intelligence community’s initial intel set up of the Russia probe.

In an interview with Fox News that aired Friday, Barr commented that the intelligence community’s early handling of the Russia investigation may raise questions. He noted it was first handled at a “very senior level” and then by a “small group.”

Barr stated:

The thing that’s interesting about this is that this was handled at a very senior level of these departments. It wasn’t handled in the ordinary way that investigations or counterintelligence activities are conducted. It was sort of an ad hoc, small group — and most of these people are no longer with the FBI or the CIA or the other agencies involved. I think there’s a misconception out there that we know a lot about what happened. The fact of the matter is, Bob Mueller did not look at the government’s activities.

Deep inside a 7,700-plus word Washington Post article published June 23, 2017, the newspaper detailed the highly compartmentalized nature of the original Russia interference investigation and the manner in which other U.S. intelligence agencies were deliberately kept in the dark.

According to the newspaper, in the summer of 2016, CIA Director John Brennan convened a “secret task force at CIA headquarters composed of several dozen analysts and officers from the CIA, the NSA and the FBI.”

The Post described the unit as so secretive it functioned as a “sealed compartment” hidden even from the rest of the U.S. intelligence community; a unit whose workers were all made to sign additional non-disclosure forms.

The unit reported to top officials, the newspaper documented:

They worked exclusively for two groups of “customers,” officials said. The first was Obama and fewer than 14 senior officials in government. The second was a team of operations specialists at the CIA, NSA and FBI who took direction from the task force on where to aim their subsequent efforts to collect more intelligence on Russia.

The number of Obama administration officials who were allowed access to the Russia intelligence was also highly limited, The Post reported. At first only four senior officials were involved: Brennan, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, Attorney General Loretta Lynch and then-FBI Director James Comey. Their aides were all barred from attending the initial meetings, The Post stated.

AG Barr blasts federal judges who impose nationwide injunctions



Attorney General William Barr blasted federal judges who have issued more than 37 nationwide injunctions during the Trump administration, more than in the entirety of the 20th century.

In a Tuesday speech to the American Law Institute, Barr went after “improper use of nationwide injunctions against policies of all stripes” and said that the use of the injunctions to block policy gives district courts “unprecedented power.”

“One judge can, in effect, cancel the policy with the stroke of the pen,” he said. “No official in the United States government can exercise that kind of nationwide power, with the sole exception of the President. And the Constitution subjects him to nationwide election, among other constitutional checks, as a prerequisite to wielding that power.”

One example he cited was the legal battles over the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which offers protections for individuals brought to the U.S. illegally as children, instituted under former President Barack Obama.

He went on to emphasize the magnitude and increase of the injunctions, pointing out that the use of the rulings has increased dramatically since President Trump was inaugurated and contrasted the prevalence of the orders with those under Trump’s Democratic predecessor.

“Since President Trump took office, federal district courts have issued 37 nationwide injunctions against the Executive Branch. That’s more than one a month. By comparison, during President Obama’s first two years, district courts issued two nationwide injunctions against the Executive Branch, both of which were vacated by the Ninth Circuit,” Barr said.

He added that according to his department’s estimates, federal judges only issued 27 nationwide injunctions during the 20th century.

US Attorney John Durham Examining Documents Generated by Inter-Agency “Fusion Cell” Set up by John Brennan in Mid 2016

According to DOJ sources, US Attorney John Durham is examining documents generated by an inter-agency “fusion cell” that former CIA Chief John Brennan set up in mid 2016.

Attorney General Barr appointed special prosecutor John Durham to investigate the origins of Spygate and it was recently revealed the probe is much broader than previously known.


Barr and Durham are working closely with CIA Director Gina Haspel, Director of National Intelligence, Dan Coats and FBI Director Christopher Wray on surveillance issues related to Trump’s 2016 campaign.

This suggests a broader inter-agency effort is underway which is why former CIA Director John Brennan, whose fingerprints are all over Spygate, is lashing out at Trump and Barr on Twitter and in media appearances.

Investigative journalist Paul Sperry reported: According to Main DOJ sources, Durham’s portfolio for looking into the provenance of CH includes examining docs generated by an interagency “fusion cell” Brennan set up in mid-2016 on Russian election interference + pre-election briefings Steele gave to UK intelligence

John Brennan was the architect of Spygate and he knows he is in trouble.

A circular firing squad has formed between Comey and Brennan as Bill Barr and US Attorney John Durham uncover the truth about Spygate.

Brennan is blaming Comey for pushing the phony dossier and Comey is claiming Brennan pushed for the dossier to be used in the IC report.

The CI investigations into Trump officials started way before Crossfire Hurricane was launched by FBI counter-intel chief Peter Strzok in late July of 2016 and it’s all coming out.

Obama’s intel agencies and law enforcement agencies launched a series of illegal CI investigations into Carter Page, Paul Manafort, George Papadopoulos and General Mike Flynn, then used the bogus Mueller witch hunt to justify and mask the illegal spying operation on Trump and his officials.

Federal Prosecutors Charge Michael Avenatti With Defrauding Porn Star Stormy Daniels

Federal prosecutors on Wednesday charged Michael Avenatti with defrauding the woman who made him famous — porn star Stephanie Clifford, AKA Stormy Daniels.

The feds say Avenatti took money from Stormy Daniels that she was supposed to get from a book deal, reported the Associated Press.

The allegations against Avenatti were revealed in charges filed Wednesday in New York.

Federal prosecutors say Avenatti took money Daniels was supposed to get from a book deal.

Daniels isn’t named in the court filing, but the details of the case make it clear that she is the client involved in the case.

Avenatti denied the allegations.


Last month in a federal case in Los Angeles, the creepy porn lawyer was indicted on 36 counts and accused of ripping off a mentally ill paraplegic client and faces 335 years in prison.

In a completely separate federal case in New York, Avenatti faces up to 47 more years in prison if he is convicted on extortion charges.

Avenatti was charged with trying to extort #20 million from Nike.

The Trump curse is real!

Top Democrat's wife may have gained 'illegal private benefit' from his committee activities

by Alana Goodman

A charity run by the wife of Rep. Elijah Cummings received millions from special interest groups and corporations that had business before her husband’s committee and could have been used illegally, according to an IRS complaint filed by an ethics watchdog group.


Cummings, 68, a Maryland Democrat, is chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. His wife, Maya Rockeymoore, 48, is the chairman of the Maryland Democratic Party and briefly ran in the state's gubernatorial race last year. The couple married in 2008. Cummings was once heavily in debt — in part due to hefty child support payments to his first wife and two other women he had children with — but his financial situation has improved considerably over the past decade.

Globalists losing power worldwide........................Good, I love old Nigel!

Wakey, Wakey – U.K. Votes to “Change Politics For Good”…
Posted on May 24, 2019by sundance

The British voted yesterday for members to the European Parliament. The official announcement of results will not come out until Sunday because the EU vote window is 5/23 through 5/26 (and heaven-forbid the pesky Brits would influence the continent).
That said, initial media “surveys” and “exit polling” reflect the Brexit Party crushed traditional party-lines and gained around one-third of total vote support.


A Survation poll for the Daily Mail shows Mr Farage’s Brexit Party well ahead in the European elections on 31 per cent, trailed by Labour on 23, the Conservatives on 14 and the Lib Dems on 12 (link)​

.
For a political movement only six weeks old; and a likelihood the surveys and exit polls are sandbagged; the results by Nigel Farage and the Brexit Party are remarkable.

The results are so good it is also likely Prime Minister Theresa May will announce her decision to resign her post; with a request for delayed exit (irony) so she doesn’t suffer the embarrassment of a President Trump state visit simultaneous to her being voted out of office (irony x 2).

Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler Collapses – Taken to Hospital…
Posted on May 24, 2019by sundance

The day after President Trump authorized AG Bill Barr to declassify documents relating to 2016 political activity by the intelligence apparatus, House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler appeared to almost collapse when he slumped and said he was not well as he sat beside New York mayor Bill de Blasio at a press conference.

OMG!
Not to be unkind, or wish ill will to anyone, but just had,….thought.


Earlier on in this whole fiasco, I wondered and posted in comments;
HOW can the Democrat party POSSIBLY recover from this. They are crossing a line they simply can’t walk back from.


My thought is that all the top Democrat leaders will “stroke out”, or perhaps have other health related reasons to step down. Pelosi’s already there, ditto Bill and Hillary, Schiff could come up with SOMETHING, (heart attack, if only he HAD a heart, maybe bowel obstruction?)
And, don’t want to ‘pick’ on an invalid, replacements will blame it all on predesesors, the old 3 letters trick.
Easn’t there a Mafia Don that wandered around in his pajamas for years, feigning dementia?
Like that,…..

I guess the cabal realized the tensile strength of their best scarves and doorknobs would not have completed the job or are they trying out new methods?

I'll believe it all when something actually happens. I hate to be the Donny Downer in the room yet again but we're still just witnessing talk and talk is cheap! Why is this guy not in chains? What's the delay? If Trump 'has it all' what's holding things up?

the_shootist I hear you but then again isn’t seeing Comey, Clapper and Brennen turning on each other in public seeing something? The courts are the cabal’s domain. The elites know that. The public forum is ours. Watching the so called masters of the universe immolate each other and incriminate each other is an alternative form of justice that will result in their ruin of everything they worked for.

Correct. Powerful criminals need to be taken down by eliminating ANY question of their guilt. This has to be done perfectly and thoroughly or they will just rise again. Examples have to be made here. Also the waiting is pure torture for the guilty.

The President of the United States openly using the word traitor in the media has got to be scaring the living hell out of them. It doesn't get any bigger than that.

FBI Lawyer Squeals Like a Pig: Implicates Comey, McCabe, and Yates for Mishandling of FISA Warrant
May 24, 2019, 2:07 pm by Jim Hoft 1038 Comments

On Monday Rep. Doug Collins released the remaining transcripts from the House Judiciary Committee’s investigation into decisions made at the DOJ and FBI to exonerate Hillary Clinton and spy on candidate Donald Trump.

Collins released transcripts on several FBI, DOJ officials including:

Trisha Anderson
William Sweeny
Loretta Lynch
James Kybicki
Andrew McCabe
George Toscas
Jonathan Moffa
John Giacalone
Sally Moyer




Trisha Anderson went back to work at Covington & Burling in 2018

On Friday Redstate posted explosive segments from FBI Attorney Trisha Anderson’s testimony. The information first appeared in the Washington Examiner.

In her testimony, she alleges that the application process for the FISA warrant was handled in an “unusual” fashion and that numerous Obama era FBI officials were involved at the highest levels in pushing it through.​
But Anderson stressed “in this particular case, I’m drawing a distinction because my boss and my boss’ boss had already reviewed and approved this application.” She emphasized “this one was handled a little bit differently in that sense, in that it received very high-level review and approvals — informal, oral approvals — before it ever came to me for signature.”​

Normally, a FISA application would go to the legal department first to confirm that it is indeed proper to press forward with. In this case, top officials informally “approved” the application first, signaling to Anderson that her signature was just perfunctory.​
Anderson said that FISA approvals are typically “tracked in a linear fashion” and that someone in the Senior Executive Service “is the final approver on hard copy before a FISA goes to the director or deputy director for signature.” She said the Page FISA was approved outside regular procedures.​

“Because there were very high-level discussions that occurred about the FISA,” Anderson said she believed that meant “the FISA essentially had already been well-vetted all the way up through at least the Deputy Director [McCabe] level on our side and through the DAG [Yates] on the DOJ side.” Yates had already signed the application by the time it made it to Anderson’s desk.

… Anderson stressed that McCabe, Yates, and Baker all played key roles in reviewing the Page FISA. “My approval at that point was really purely administrative in nature. In other words, the substantive issues — the FISA had already substantively been approved by people much higher than me in the chain of command,” Anderson said.​
Anderson said it “typically would not have been the case” that people such as McCabe and Yates would sign off on a FISA application before she did.​

This testimony by FBI Attorney Trisha Anderson ought to keep several corrupt Obama officials up at night.
They may want to lawyer up.

Massive Victory for Conservative Nationalists in European Elections…
Posted on May 26, 2019by sundance

Polls are all closed. Election results are beginning to come in fast. The overall result in the European (EU) Parliamentary Election reflects massive gains for conservative nationalists in Italy, Greece, France, Poland, Hungary, Austria, U.K. and others…
Over 400 million people can vote in 28 countries, seven of which held ballots between Thursday and Saturday, with the remainder voting today, Sunday.

Source Feeds: Here (BBC) and Here (Reuters) and Here and Here and Here (UK centric)



In France Marine Le Pen has defeated the party led by Emmanuel Macron. Exit polls in France indicated that Marine Le Pen’s far-right, anti-immigrant National Rally party came out on top in an astonishing rebuke of French President Emmanuel Macron, who has made EU integration the heart of his presidency (link).

♦In Greece Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras is likely to call a snap general election in June, after the opposition party took the lead.
♦Poland’s ruling nationalist Law and Justice (PiS) party is expected to come first in the election with 42.4% of the vote.
♦Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban, was expected to win 56% of votes, state television reported.
♦Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz leading with support for Kurz’s conservative People’s Party, at 34.5%.
♦In Italy Matteo Salvini’s far-right League is now emerging as Italy’s largest party, and the 5-Star Movement has lost a third of its voters over the course of a year.
♦Chancellor Angela Merkel’s governing coalition, the CDU/CSU, has lost multiple seats now dropping to a projected 28 (out of 96).

In the U.K. Nigel Farage Brexit Party is crushing the traditional political classes. With 100 of 373 counts complete, the brand new Brexit Party is in the lead with 31.9%, crushing the two largest parties,Conservatives and Labour, who are down 12-14% each so far.

American Patriots, please pray for us Canadian’s. We are seeking the same revolution up here. While the conservative leader is no Trump (n I wish) he will I think have the strength to turn the Drama queen out of office. Trump is changing the world. God’s man is having his effect. Please keep him in power for another term.

Globalism is hanging by a thread. A second Trump term will cut the final thread. Then we Canucks can finally get you back as true friends and we can defend this beautiful continent together!
