Former Feinstein Staffer Raised $50 Million, Hired Fusion GPS And Christopher Steele After 2016 Election

 

What does Feinstein know, and who is putting pressure on her? Nothing would be better for her to call it a day as a Senator. Let’s connect the dots with what she did back in January 2018 when she released the 312 page GPS Fusion Report. She claimed that she felt “pressure.”

A declassified congressional report confirms prior reporting by The Federalist that Daniel Jones, a former staffer for Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), hired Fusion GPS and Christopher Steele after the 2016 election to push the anti-Trump Russian collusion narrative.

According to the report, Jones, who runs an investigative outfit called the Penn Quarter Group (PQG), told the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in March of 2017 that he had retained the services of Fusion GPS and Christopher Steele to “continue exposing Russian interference” in the 2016 election. Steele is the former British spy who authored the infamous unverified dossier of allegations against President Donald Trump.

The congressional report stated that Jones “planned to share the information he obtained with policymakers on Capitol Hill and with the press, and also offered to provide PQG’s entire holdings to the FBI.” That information was gleaned from an FBI interview document called an FD-302, which was prepared on March 28, 2017. Feinstein’s office did not respond to multiple requests for comment about her interactions with Jones during the course of her committee’s investigation of Fusion GPS prior to the publication of this article.More at  The Federalist

Feinstein says she felt “pressure” to release transcript 

Sen. Dianne Feinstein made a startling admission when asked why she released the Fusion GPS transcripts on Tuesday without first informing Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) ahead of time.

“I meant to tell him, and I didn’t have a chance to tell him, and that concerns me,” Feinstein told CNN Congressional correspondent Manu Raju, adding “I just got pressured, and I didn’t do it.

Sunday Respite – The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly

 

 

Here is something different for a Sunday Respite. It reminds us how much the sound track brings to a film. Wishing everyone a wonderful day.. Enjoy!

 

 

On January 2018, the Danish Broadcasting Corporation (DR) hosted three orchestral concerts called ‘Duellen – Morricone trækker først’ (The Dual – Morricone draws first) which included some of the soundtrack from various western and gangster movies.

This is their version of some of the music from the western classic: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. The concert was hosted by Kristian Leth and conducted by Sarah Hicks. The performance was orchestrated by The Danish National Symphony Orchestra (DR Symfoniorkester) with help from The Danish Concert Choir (DR Koncertkoret).

 

Flashback Saturday – Looking back at James Comey and why he was so dangerous

 

A few weeks ago I started a “Flashback Saturday”. On Saturday, a “whatever happened” to answer or review previous news I have covered and how the story has unfolded. A “Blast from the past.”

How about James Comey and now what we know about him. I will throw in a short one on Mueller.

First I need to start out with

Comey: Citizens Should Have No Secrets That The Government Can’t Access 

The latest sign of this stealth takeover of civil rights and freedom was epitomized in recent Senate testimony by FBI Director James Comey, who voiced his objections to civilian use of encryption to protect personal data – information the government has no automatic right to obtain.

As reported by The New American, Comey testified that he believes the government’s spy and law enforcement agencies should have unfettered access to everything Americans may store or send in electronic format: On computer hard drives, in so-called i-clouds, in email and in text messaging – for our own safety and protection. Like many in government today, Comey believes that national security is more important than constitutional privacy protections or, apparently, due process.

Comey had ‘false and dangerous view’ of FBI role 

 “Independent? This is a false and dangerous view of law enforcement in the American system. Mr. Comey is describing a FBI director who essentially answers to no one. But the police powers of the government are awesome and often abused, and the only way to prevent or correct abuses is to report to elected officials who are accountable to voters.” More at Washington Examiner

Interview with Robert F. Kennedy during which he describes FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover as “dangerous” and “rather a psycho.” Sound familiar?

 

 

Here are thoughts from our savant from Arizona in the form of one John McCain.

“When you fire probably, arguably, the most respected person in America, you better have a very good explanation…”

 

FBI Director: I have to check to see if Obama can kill citizens on U.S. soil January 26, 2013

FBI Director Robert Mueller on Wednesday said he would have to go back and check with the Department of Justice whether Attorney General Eric Holder’s “three criteria” for the targeted killing of Americans also applied to Americans inside the U.S.
Pressed by House lawmakers about a recent speech in which Holder described the legal justification for assassination, Mueller, who was attending a hearing on his agency’s budget, did not say without qualification that the three criteria could not be applied inside the U.S.
“I have to go back. Uh, I’m not certain whether that was addressed or not,” Mueller said when asked by Rep. Tom Graves, R-Ga., about a distinction between domestic and foreign targeting. Graves followed up asking whether “from a historical perspective,” the federal government has “the ability to kill a U.S. citizen on United States soil or just overseas.”
“I’m going to defer.

For an abbreviated view of what Comey has been doing with his life:

FBI James Comey, the ultimate chameleon who sold his sou  

The author of this piece makes a prescient observation regarding the Comey Ashcroft relationship back in the 1990’s when they worked together:

On the surface, it’s an odd pairing: Comey—who cites liberal theologian Reinhold Niebuhr as a formative influence, and who can sing along with Good Charlotte pop-punk hits—and Ashcroft, a reactionary born-again Christian who breaks into spirited renditions of biblical hymns. There’s little risk Comey will lose his sense of humor in his new job. It’s only his soul that’s up for grabs.

 

Vampire Hillary Clinton – How she is sucking the strapped DNC dry

 

The non-covered story that the Federalist reported on a couple of days ago, FEC Records Indicate Hillary Campaign Illegally Laundered $84 Million

That lawsuit, filed last week in a DC district court, summarizes the DNC-Clinton conspiracy and provides detailed evidence from Federal Election Commission (FEC) filings confirming the complaint’s allegations that Democrats undertook an extensive scheme to violate federal campaign limits. (Basically money laundering donations through the States) Not to worry Hillary, Sessions won’t do anything.

Wasn’t enough Clinton news? I have to bring you this gem. Good news all around for the GOP. Let’s keep the old gal along with all the other corrupt Dems front and center and we will keep the House and Senate.

Even in defeat, you have to pay the Clintons. The former first lady and two-time presidential loser is forcing the cash-strapped Democratic National Committee to dole out nearly $2 million for access to their email list through Onward Together, according to The Intercept. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has paid $700,000 to use the same data. It showcases that while Democratic voter enthusiasm is high, the party apparatus is in a terrible state of disrepair. The army of small-donors has collapsed, new donor attraction is lackluster, debts are in the millions of dollars, with the DNC taking out a loan totaling almost $2 million just to keep the lights on. And while the Obama campaign gifted their data, the publication added that Democrats aren’t viewing this as a favor at all since he turned his Organizing for Action group into a direct DNC competitor, further hamstringing the national committee (via The Intercept):

Heading into the 2018 midterms, with Democrats hoping to take back the House of Representatives and even make a run at the Senate, the party has spent more than $2 million worth of campaign resources on payments to Hillary Clinton’s new group, Onward Together, according to Federal Election Commission filings and interviews with people familiar with the payments.

The Democratic National Committee is paying $1.65 million for access to the email list, voter data, and software produced by Hillary for America during the 2016 presidential campaign, Xochitl Hinojosa, a spokesperson for the DNC, told The Intercept. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has paid more than $700,000 to rent the same email list.

Clinton is legally entitled to rent her list to the party, rather than hand it over as a gift, but in 2015, Barack Obama gave his email list, valued at $1,942,640, to the DNC as an in-kind contribution. In 2013 and 2014, OFA had similarly made in-kind contributions exceeding $3.4 million for uses of the list that cycle. More at Townhall

Comey goes off the deep end as CNN Cooper nails him for leaking

 

 

Merry Christmas Jim and to your band of co-conspirators

As the saying goes, when is a rose not a rose? Comey states that the problem is Coop’s question, not that  Comey can’t come up with a satisfactory answer to the question.

The Comey magical mystery tour continues and Anderson Cooper called Comey a leaker and insisted he leaked many times. Many many times. Saint Comey was left to spin in the wind. He is scheduled for Bret Bair on Fox tonight.

It’s starting to get fun as the light-hearted let’s get Trump crowd is dissipating and he is getting some hard questions now. Oops Jim….this is not going well..

Cooper didn’t follow-up as to the status of this friend.

We just learned that the Professor who leaked Comey memos to media was ‘special government employee’ for the FBI. According to sources familiar with the situation, Comey tasked Richman with “special projects,” and he had security clearance and access to the building. Additionally, Richman was provided talking points detailing how the agency was managing the investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s emails. More at the  Washington Examiner

 

CNN held a Town Hall with fired FBI Director James Comey, in which the topic quickly turned to his memos and whether or not Comey broke the law by releasing them. “Do you think there is any credence to the president’s claims that you broke the law when you released memos?” host Anderson Cooper asked. Comey replied that he did not. “I see no credible claim by any serious person that I violated the law,” he said. Yet, Cooper pressed on, pointing out that one memo was, in fact, retroactively classified. “Is it okay for somebody at the FBI to leak something an internal document even if it is not classified?” Cooper pushed. “There is a whole lot wrong with your question,” Comey replied. “I didn’t leak memos, I asked a friend to communicate the substance one unclassified memo to the media and I was a private citizen.”

Snip….. Oopsie Jim

“Shouldn’t you be nailed to the door then? Aren’t you a leaker?” Cooper said, grilling the former FBI Director. “You gave up a document that was released to the New York Times!” He further demanded: “I am surprised that you only think that leaks officially are somebody that is classified.” “I totally get it,” Comey said. “I intentionally gave this information to a friend, intending that it be out in the media. I wanted it to get out in the media. As a private citizen, I could do that and did do that just as I wrote about it in my book.” (Notes from the video – full transcript there.)

The Trumps honor the White House, far from Obama’s Drag Queen show

The Washington National Opera provided the musical entertainment for last night’s evening entertainment for the Trump’s first State dinner. Wow.

We finally have the respect given to “our house.” Class has returned. The guest list does not include the Riff Raff of Hollyweird. The swamp of D.C. in the clothing of Democrats. The media wolves to find fault.

 

Apple’s Tim Cook with former EPA’s Lisa Jackson

The only sour note for me was to read that Lisa Jackson of Obama’s EPA showed up with Apple’s Tim Cook.

So let’s remind ourselves of the insults given in our previous administration and give the Trumps a big thank you. Here is how Obama treated the White House.

Drag Queen Shi-Queeta Lee live streams performance at the White House

Local D.C. drag queen Shi-Queeta Lee was invited to perform and mother served the kids some Tina Turner tease, performing (and dropping into a split for) “Proud Mary.” Shi-Queeta may have been the first drag queen to perform at The White House, though honestly, who knows what J. Edgar Hoover was doing on the weekends.

The briefing was live-streamed on whitehouse.gov, but in case you missed it, Ms. Lee shared the video of her performance for the world to enjoy and kick a leg up to:
