Uranium One Informant spills the beans yesterday to congress, no recording taken

 

I searched high and low for a story on the block buster testimony of the FBI informant that testified for over four hours yesterday at a joint Committee meeting of three commiittees. What piqued my special interest was the minimum time Hannity gave to it last night when they had the Informants attorney on,Victoria Toensing. He gave her all of two minutes. Sara Carter gave some time to it, but why have her speak on it? But what was clarified later on Fox in a 20 second spot this morning – “There was no written or recorded testimony taken.” Bingo. Full stop on that one. So I give you this which as far as I am concerned is the one story we can nail Hillary for sure.  So why no recorded testimony? She stated the committees could not agree on the recording. I am including a clip done at the end of November describing how she was preparing her client. Fat lot of good it did apparently. Buried once more. Hannity you should be ashamed. Here is what “The Hill” got ahold of.

A FBI informant connected to the Uranium One controversy told three congressional committees in a written statement that Moscow routed millions of dollars to America with the expectation it would be used to benefit Bill Clinton‘s charitable efforts while Secretary of State Hillary Clinton quarterbacks a “reset” in US-Russian relations.

The informant, Douglas Campbell, said in the statement obtained by The Hill that he was told by Russian nuclear executives that Moscow had hired the American lobbying firm APCO Worldwide specifically because it was in position to influence the Obama administration, and more specifically Hillary Clinton.

Campbell said Russian nuclear officials “told me at various times that they expected APCO to apply a portion of the $3 million annual lobbying fee it was receiving from the Russians to provide in-kind support for the Clinton’s Global Initiative,” he added in the testimony.

“The contract called for four payments of $750,000 over twelve months. APCO was expected to give assistance free of charge to the Clinton Global Initiative as part of their effort to create a favorable environment to ensure the Obama administration made affirmative decisions on everything from Uranium One to the U.S.-Russia Civilian Nuclear Cooperation agreement. “ Full story at The Hill

Noose tightens on Obama and his henchmen – more texts from D.C. lovers

More text messages from the infamous D.C. lovers are coming out. The latest appears to put Obama in the loop. No surprise really. And then Hillary’s best bud Sidney Blumenthal is in it up to his eyeballs as well. But a whole lot of us didn’t need the texts to figure this out. Check out Exclusive — Rep. Paul Gosar: Obama’s Fast and Furious, Benghazi, IRS Scandals All Connected to DOJ, FBI Corruption in Trump Probe

“You know, this previous administration—the Obama administration—micromanaged everything out of the White House. And I challenge people, remember the Syrian strikes that were actually handpicked and dictated by the president at that time. This gentleman was involved in everything. That’s where all this leads. When you look at the cover-up with the email scandal with Hillary Clinton, it gets—it should have pointed out exactly what we’ve been talking about, that this was the weaponization of our Justice Department not only to cover up for the previous administration and the wrongdoing and ills of them and those associated with them, but also to attack a sitting president—actually a candidate at the time, then president-elect and then a current, sitting president you know of an opposition party.

Now a few of the texts:

New text messages between FBI lovers Peter Strzok and Lisa Page have now been made public, and, as The Duran’s Alex Christoforou notes, the big reveal is that then-POTUS Barack Obama appears to be in the loop, on the whole ‘destroy Trump’ insurance plan hatched by upper management at the FBI.

Fox News reports:

Page wrote to Strzok on Sept. 2, 2016 about prepping Comey because “potus wants to know everything we’re doing.” Senate investigators told Fox News this text raises questions about Obama’s personal involvement in the Clinton email investigation.

In texts previously revealed, Strzok and Page have shown their disdain for Republicans in general, as well as Trump, calling him a “f—ing idiot,” among other insults.

Among the newly disclosed texts, Strzok also calls Virginians who voted against then-FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s wife for a state Senate seat “ignorant hillbillys.” (sic)

That text came from Strzok to Page on Nov. 4, 2015, the day after Jill McCabe lost a hotly contested Virginia state Senate election. Strzok said of the result, “Disappointing, but look at the district map. Loudon is being gentrified, but it’s still largely ignorant hillbilliys. Good for her for running, but curious if she’s energized or never again.”

Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., along with majority staff from the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, is releasing the texts, along with a report titled, “The Clinton Email Scandal and the FBI’s Investigation of it.”

The newly uncovered texts reveal a bit more about the timing of the discovery of “hundreds of thousands” of emails on former congressman Anthony Weiner’s laptop, ultimately leading to Comey’s infamous letter to Congress just days before the 2016 presidential election.

On Sept. 28, 2016 Strzok wrote to Page, “Got called up to Andy’s [McCabe] earlier.. hundreds of thousands of emails turned over by Weiner’s atty to sdny [Southern District of New York], includes a ton of material from spouse [Huma Abedin]. Sending team up tomorrow to review… this will never end.” Senate investigators told Fox News this text message raises questions about when FBI officials learned of emails relevant to the Hillary Clinton email investigation on the laptop belonging to Weiner, the husband to Clinton aide Huma Abedin.

It was a full month later, on Oct. 28, 2016 when Comey informed Congress that, “Due to recent developments,” the FBI was reopening its Clinton email investigation.

“In connection with an unrelated case, the FBI has learned of the existence of emails that appear to be pertinent to the investigation. I am writing to inform you that the investigative team briefed me on this yesterday…” Comey said at the time.

The question becomes why Comey was only informed by his investigative team on Oct.  27, if the Clinton emails on Weiner’s laptop were discovered by Sept. 28, at the latest. H/T:

Clinton allies involved in second dossier, same as Benghazi

 

Interesting isn’t it? The Clintons just keep slithering on, damaging everything they touch. Now we learn of a second dossier? I have been laying fallow due to the bug going around, thus stuck trying to amuse myself with the T.V. Needless to say, Hillary is out this morning again bemoaning her loss, while the Dems have totally lost their minds. I swear I am in the twilight zone? Anyone else feel that way?

Republican Rep. Jim Jordan accused key Clinton allies of helping craft a second anti-Trump dossier and accused them of “rigging the game,” Tuesday on “Fox & Friends.”

Jordan was asked about a possible second dossier and said Clinton operatives Sidney Blumenthal and Cody Shearer had paid Christopher Steele to do opposition research, but then told Steele which specific details to include.

“The names we keep hearing are Sidney Blumenthal and Cody Shearer — people who have been around the Clintons as being a part of this. But I also think it’s kind of interesting because what it looks like is, they paid Steele to put together the dossier and told him what to put in,” Jordan said. “Talk about rigging the game and putting together a document that will serve your purposes as an opposition research document.”

Sunday Respite – “Let it go”

 

This seemed to be a fitting piece for today’s respite. The Piano Guys in Let it Go. Wishing everyone a wonderful day!   GO EAGLES!!

Are the FISA Court members dirty?

 

What is with the members of the FISA court who keep finding their way in handling the very issues that are coming before it regarding #MEMOGATE ?  The Judge that was to sentence Flynn was forced to recuse himself for reasons yet to be determined just as he was ready to bang the gavel down on Flynn. Now buried in this little gem? Oh, yes..we learn the FISA Judge ruled on the Comey matter. Add to this fact that every single Judge on the FISA court was appointed by Obama. These two FISA judges were from the D.C. Court. The list at the end of the post.

Most important is the fact that the FISA court only turns down .02 percent of requests. All day long yesterday we hear that the FISA court demands a “rigorous through review” before granting a request. Total nonsense. One has a better chance of being struck by lightning.

Daily Caller:

On the same day the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence released the Nunes memo showing the FBI relied on the salacious and unverified Trump dossier to obtain a surveillance warrant on Carter Page, a federal judge ruled to withhold the Comey memos. The memos, authored by former FBI Director James Comey, are about his nine private conversations with President-elect and President Trump.

U.S. District Judge James Boasberg, who ruled in favor of the FBI’s request to keep the Comey memos secret, also sits on the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court. The FISA court is the same court that approved the surveillance on Trump associates.

Boasberg refused to release the documents on the basis they were still being used by special counsel Robert Mueller in his investigation of the alleged Russian collusion with Trump associates.

The judge ruled, “the Comey Memos, at least for now, will remain in the hands of the Special Counsel and not the public.”

Keep reading…

Then we just learn that the Judge who was to sentence Flynn is on the FISA court as well.

Did FBI Peter Strzok setup FLynn? Judge now recused, Sentencing postponed UPDATE!

“Due to the status of the Special Counsel’s investigation, the parties do not believe that this matter is ready to be scheduled for a sentencing hearing at this time,” the special counsel asked the court.

The court filing states a date to sentence Flynn could not be determined by the special counsel at this time and that 90-day extension is be required.

The fact that one has about as much chance of being struck by lightning than being turned down as a candidate for investigation tells us what rare company Trump is in. Even so the first request to the FISA court was turned down. Here we go:

Only two in over 10,000 applications were turned down by the FISA Court.

According to ABC News:

More than a thousand applications for electronic surveillance, all signed by the attorney general, are submitted each year, and the vast majority are approved. From 2009 to 2015, for example, more than 10,700 applications for electronic surveillance were submitted, and only one was denied in its entirety, according to annual reports sent to Congress. Another one was denied in part, and 17 were withdrawn by the government.

Finally, another very disturbing fact about the wire tapping request of President Trump is that the FISA Court turned down President Obama’s Administration’s first request to wire tap President Trump that was evidently signed off on by Attorney General Lynch.  With only two applications denied out of 10,700 from 2009 through 2015, the fact that the Obama Administration’s application was denied by the FISA Court the first time is very disturbing.  The odds of this happening are 0.02%.

Every single judge on the FISA Court as of today was appointed during Obama’s Presidency!

Five of the current eleven judges on the court are scheduled to be on the court for President Trump’s entire first term with six of the judges’ terms expiring before January 2021.  Seven of the judges are scheduled into the year 2020.

New Strzok message drop discuss evasion of message archiving

Tick tock, we are all at the ready for the Memo drop today. The Dems are apoplectic about it and have done their best to muddy the waters about the content. Let us not forget the other members in this drama play. Their story is rising to the surface and getting buried under the avalanche of the memo drop. These two lovebirds must be sweating big time bullets.

 

Former FBI agent Peter Strzok and FBI lawyer Lisa Page discussed getting new Apple iPhones, in lieu of their Samsung 5 government issued phones in text messages they exchanged in August 2016. They noted in the texts that the new phones would help keep their text messages from government collection after speaking with the FBI’s IT director, according to newly released August 2016 text messages.

Here’s a portion of the text messages:

Strzok: “Hot damn. I’m happy to pilot that…we get around our security/monitoring issues?”

Page: “No, he’s proposing that we just stop following them. Apparently, the requirement to capture texts came from omb, but we’re the only org (I’m told) who is following that rule. His point is, if no one else is doing it why should we.”

Page: Helps that Dd had a terrible time with his phone [redacted] which made him concerned for our folks all over the place.

Page: These phones suck as much as they do because of the program we use to capture texts, full stop.

Strzok: No doubt.

Strzok: I’m not convinced short of OPR, that text capture capability really deters anything.

Strzok: If I want to copy/take classified, I’m sure as hell not going to do it on this phone.

In the above text messages, Strzok’s reference to “Dd” is possibly referring to Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, per Johnson’s letter’s footnote.

Did FBI Peter Strzok setup FLynn? Judge now recused, Sentencing postponed UPDATE!

We learn from this little gem, that it was FBI Peter Strzok was the man who so called “nailed” Flynn. Earlier reporters stated that the original agents who interviewed Flynn did not find enough to believe that Flynn intentionally lied. Flynn did not have the energy nor funds to mount an expensive defense. It is reported that he has already lost his house, thus accepted the plea deal.

Now we find the Judge was recused. Judge Sullivan takes over. I am adding this Update!

UPDATE: Judge a member of FISA court!

Did he approve the spying?

 

What If Michael Flynn Did Not Actually Lie to the FBI? – Breitbart

In fact, we know — as the Wall Street Journal noted on Saturday — that former FBI Director James Comey told the House Intelligence Committee on March 2 that Flynn had not lied to the FBI, but had merely forgotten what had been said in his conversations. It is not hard to imagine that might have happened; he was on vacation in the Dominican Republic when one of the conversations allegedly took place.

But I digress -back to the story:

Special counsel Robert Mueller has requested the postponement of former National Security Advisor Gen. Michael Flynn’s sentencing. 

“Due to the status of the Special Counsel’s investigation, the parties do not believe that this matter is ready to be scheduled for a sentencing hearing at this time,” the special counsel asked the court.

The court filing states a date to sentence Flynn could not be determined by the special counsel at this time and that 90-day extension is be required.

As The Gateway Pundit reported last December, U.S. District Judge Rudolph Contreras was recused from Flynn’s criminal case. Emmet G. Sullivan now oversees over the trial.

It is not clear why Contreras was recused from the case. UPDATE:

(The Judge indeed is a FISA Judge.. did he approve the FISA request?) LInk:

Trump’s chances of being turned down for a FISA wire tap 0.02 percent

Last year, The Gateway Pundit asked: Was President Trump’s National Security Advisor tricked into meeting with the FBI without a lawyer?

Fox News host Sean Hannity and reporter Sara Carter have suggested Flynn may have been tricked into having the interview with disgraced FBI agent Peter Strzok without a lawyer.
