Trump digging up dirt on Mueller’s 15 Attorneys, new offensive

Finally it looks like Trump is getting the dogs out and going after Mueller. Where is Sessions and his going after Comey and Hillary? Gateway Pundit has a look at the 15 Attorneys that Mueller has put together at the Gateway link below:

As TGP previously reported, The Washington Post claimed that President Trump’s legal team are exploring ways to “scale back” Mueller’s investigation. This is great news, considering many believe Mueller is not an independent arbiter of the investigation and is abusing his power by investigating trivial business transactions.

Not only is Trump asking his advisers about his power to pardon family members and even himself in connection with the probe, The New York Times is reporting that President Trump is also going on the offensive. FINALLY!

Trump’s aides are seeking leverage as they investigate Mueller’s investigators.

Per The New York Times:

 President Trump’s lawyers and aides are scouring the professional and political backgrounds of investigators hired by the special counsel Robert S. Mueller III, looking for conflicts of interest they could use to discredit the investigation — or even build a case to fire Mr. Mueller or get some members of his team recused, according to three people with knowledge of the research effort.

The search for potential conflicts is wide-ranging. It includes scrutinizing donations to Democratic candidates, investigators’ past clients and Mr. Mueller’s relationship with James B. Comey, whose firing as F.B.I. director is part of the special counsel’s investigation.

Back to business!

I have concluded two part conspiracy posts regarding “Deep State” operative Reality Leigh Winner? and Reality Leigh Winner, a useless idiot or did the ‘Deep State’ use her

My intention today was to draw conclusions regarding facts that simply make no sense. I do believe Reality Leigh Winner who leaked Top Secret Documents was a willing patsy. Who it was that orchestrated the event in particular I know not. I do believe there were more involved. I believe she was probably groomed for what happened. No less than ISIS grooms its potential converts. While in the Air Force her office was in the NSA building. I give you this fact to think about:

It’s the private sector with its 854,000 contract personnel with top-secret clearances, “a number greater than that of top-secret-cleared civilian employees of the government.”

I will let you wander over to Antiwar.com  and let Peter Van Buren do the theory thing about who benefits from Ms Winner’s illegal activity titled “Hey Intercept, Something Is Very Wrong With Reality Winner and the NSA Leak.” I agree with him.

I conclude with a segment from an earlier post: Are we about to inherit a Totalitarian State? The Silent Coup  

“The Deep State, which “operates according to its own compass heading regardless of who is formally in power,” makes a mockery of elections and the entire concept of a representative government.”

Zero Hedge ties up the loose knots and gives us a string of tin foil that is worth consideration.

So who or what is the Deep State?

…. It’s the fusion centers and spy agencies that have created a surveillance state and turned all of us into suspects. It’s the courthouses and prisons that have allowed corporate profits to take precedence over due process and justice. It’s the military empire with its private contractors and defense industry that is bankrupting the nation. It’s the private sector with its 854,000 contract personnel with top-secret clearances, “a number greater than that of top-secret-cleared civilian employees of the government.” It’s what former congressional staffer Mike Lofgren refers to as “a hybrid of national security and law enforcement agencies”: the Department of Defense, the State Department, Homeland Security, the CIA, the Justice Department, the Treasury, the Executive Office of the President via the National Security Council, the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, a handful of vital federal trial courts, and members of the defense and intelligence committees.

It’s every facet of a government that is no longer friendly to freedom and is working overtime to trample the Constitution underfoot and render the citizenry powerless in the face of the government’s power grabs, corruption and abusive tacticsMore at Zero Hedge

Senator Inouye,in 1987, summarizes here the coverup of the US Shadowy Government involvement; by saying:

“There exists a shadowy Government with its own Air Force, its own Navy, its own fundraising mechanism, and the ability to pursue its own ideas of the national interest, free from all checks and balances, and free from the law itself.”

Comey had ‘false and dangerous view’ of FBI role

 

Whatever parts of Comey’s testimony you believe were the high points, what did become crystal clear was his dangerous view of the Department as this totally independent agency accountable to no one. We found what could happen with this view in one J. Edgar Hoover. I caught the WSJ piece before it went behind the pay wall and was a well written piece. The testimony bore out yesterday the concerns expressed. The Examiner picks up the thread here:

The right-leaning Wall Street Journal editorial board hit former FBI Director James Comey for having a “false and dangerous view” of how the agency is expected to function in a democracy.

In an editorial published Wednesday night, just hours ahead of Comey’s highly anticipated testimony before Congress, the Journal said that his testimony, released earlier in the day, suggests he believes the FBI should act as an unchecked authority in law enforcement, and that Comey didn’t seem interested in discussing any of the issues before him with any elected or appointed officials.

“The most troubling part of Mr. Comey’s statement is his belief in what he calls ‘the FBI’s traditionally independent status in the executive branch,’ which he invokes more than once,” the paper said. “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”

Twenty Million Americans spied on, unmasked, and Comey’s coverup?

It is claimed that Millions of Americans were spied on and were unmasked and better yet? Comey is up to his eyeballs in it. The story first came to light back in March. Story Here. The story never got legs. On Monday, a lawsuit was filed. The documents are worth a look.

I understand why Trump is fed up with Sessions. Sessions essentially walked away from his position as head of the DOJ when he recused himself over Russia Russia Russia… did you see either of Obama’s DOJ’s Directors recuse themselves?  Buckle your seatbelt:

A former U.S. intelligence contractor tells Circa he walked away with more than 600 million classified documents on 47 hard drives from the National Security Agency and the CIA, a haul potentially larger than Edward Snowden’s now infamous breach.

And now he is suing former FBI Director James Comey and other government figures, alleging the bureau has covered up evidence he provided them showing widespread spying on Americans that violated civil liberties.

Montgomery alleges that more than 20 million American identities were illegally unmasked – credit reports, emails, phone conversations and Internet traffic, were some of the items the NSA and CIA collected.

“They’re doing this domestic surveillance on Americans, running a project on U.S. soil,” Montgomery alleged. He did not disclose the classified name of the project but said he revealed all aspects of the project during his interview with the FBI. 

“Can you imagine what someone can do with the information they were collecting on Americans, can you imagine that kind of power.”

Montgomery divulged to the FBI a ”pattern and practice of conducting illegal, unconstitutional surveillance against millions of Americans, including prominent Americans such as the chief justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, other justices, 156 judges, prominent businessmen, and others such as Donald J. Trump, as well as Plaintiffs themselves,” Montgomery and Klayman alleged in their suit.

“Plaintiffs were assured that the FBI, under Defendant Comey, would conduct a full investigation into the grave instances of illegal and unconstitutional activity set forth by Montgomery. However, the FBI, on Defendant Comey’s orders, buried the FBI’s investigation because the FBI itself is involved in an ongoing conspiracy to not only conduct the aforementioned illegal, unconstitutional surveillance, but to cover it up as well,” the suit added.

He said he returned the hard drives to the FBI, a fact confirmed in government documents reviewed by Circa.

Montgomery says the evidence he gave to the FBI chronicle the warrantless collection of phone, financial and personal data and the unmasking of identities in spy data about millions of Americans,.

“This domestic surveillance was all being done on computers supplied by the FBI,” Montgomery told Circa in an interview. “So these supercomputers, which are FBI computers, the CIA is using them to do domestic surveillance.”

FBI Special Counsel Mueller: ‘I Have to Check to See If Obama Has the Right to Kill Americans On U S Soil’

While we once again will hear how another “White Knight” comes before us in the form of Mueller to dig about the swamp, looking for some heads to claim, I suggest he is anything but that very special person. You can read elsewhere how he and Comey saved our Constitution at a hospital bedside. This is the real Mueller, another political hack. You see, Obama had a kill list. He had a peculiar taste for it.

It’s been well reported that Obama and his top minions have a so-called “kill list” of which he takes a particular interest. The question is where does it start and where does it stop? The issue of his killing Americans abroad brought a fire storm, and does he have the authority to kill Americans. Here. On U.S. soil?

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.

“Due process and judicial process are not one and the same, particularly when it comes to national security. The Constitution guarantees due process, not judicial process,” Holder said.

But Jonathan Turley, a law professor at George Washington University, wrote in Foreign Policy magazine on Wednesday that Holder’s remarks not only would be seen by the framers of the Constitution as “the very definition of authoritarian power,” but were met “not with outcry but muted applause.”

“Holder’s new definition of ‘due process’ was perfectly Orwellian,” Turley wrote. “What Holder is describing is a model of an imperial presidency that would have made Richard Nixon blush. …

“Where due process once resided, Holder offered only an assurance that the president would kill citizens with care. While that certainly relieved any concern that Obama would hunt citizens for sport, Holder offered no assurances on how this power would be used in the future beyond the now all-too-familiar ‘trust us’ approach to civil liberties of this administration,” he wrote.

NSA director Rodgers openly says Trump complicating U.S. alliances

Follow me as we connect the dots. Many were voicing concerns over Trump keeping Admiral Rodgers as director of the National Security Agency. His charge was mainly cybersecurity and a hold over from Obama. When I caught Rodger’s negative statements at the Comey hearing it was time to see what he was about. Even more disturbing is to find that NSA General Counsel Glenn Gerstell, a major bundler for Obama is still in his role and has not been removed. If Trump is to survice he best empty these pieces of garbage pronto. Here tis:

A stunning moment in the House Intelligence hearing — the director of the National Security Agency, Admiral Michael Rogers, acknowledged on live television that President Trump’s loose talk has complicated relationships with Britain and Germany.

  1. On Britain: Rogers was asked about Trump’s repetition of an unsubstantiated claim that Britain’s top spy agency wiretapped Trump on behalf of President Obama. Rogers gave a forceful “no,” said he agreed with the British that the claims were nonsense, and acknowledged that Trump’s allegation was unhelpful and “clearly frustrates a key ally of ours.”
  2. On Germany: Rogers was asked about Trump’s suggestion to German Chancellor Angela Merkel last week that they both had something in common because they’d been wiretapped by Obama. Rogers said it was unhelpful for Trump to raise this controversial incident, which became public due to leaks by Edward Snowden. “It certainly complicates things,” Rogers said. More at Axios 

Enter Glenn S. Gerstell:

Mar 2, 2017We were delighted to have Mr. Glenn S. Gerstell, General Counsel of the National Security Agency, as our keynote speaker for the Saturday …topic:

NSA General Counsel Glenn Gerstell on “Confronting the Cybersecurity Challenge”

And just who is Glenn Gerstell?

NSA Appoints Obama Bundler As New Top Lawyer (2015) 

Washington attorney and Obama fundraiser Glenn Gerstell gets tapped for the top legal post at the nation’s largest intelligence agency.

As the NSA’s top lawyer, Gerstell would be a part of the agency’s senior leadership team and advise the director, Admiral Michael Rogers. In the wake of the Edward Snowden leaks, the general counsel has also been tasked with speaking publicly about the NSA’s actions and defending their legality.

In 2011, Obama appointed Gerstell to the National Infrastructure Advisory Committee. The group, which is part of the Homeland Security Department, advises the president and other U.S. officials on matters of infrastructure and cybersecurity. Gerstell served in a volunteer part-time position, according to his online résumé.More at Daily Beast

Huckabee – Something Happened To FBI Director Comey, Needs To Resign

The presser by Assange yesterday was chilling for those who heard it in its entirety. For that matter for anyone that even caught a smidgen of it since the media and even bloggers have shown or posted little of it. So our T.V, phones and microwave are portals into the ether. But we really knew it…. those of us wearing tin foil have posted on the fact previously. Setting that aside, where do we go from here? One thing is for sure, FBI Comey and the NSA, CIA will not go quietly into that dark night. Earlier posts: Comey: Citizens Should Have No Secrets That The Government Can’t Access, and FBI James Comey, the ultimate chameleon who sold his soul?

Huckabee made some excellent points yesterday on Fox… worth consideration. Here are partial notes from the clip:

Huckabee’s comments are much less measured and much more honest than those of General Hayden. “There are some things that we need to know about as American citizens, particularly if it potentially violates every constitutional right that Americans have. If our government is spying on us, if our government is holding back secrets about us and stealing things from us in the way of information, then something is rotten, not just in Denmark. It’s rotten in DC and we’ve got to get to the bottom of it because otherwise we don’t have this great republic that most of us believe that we have.”

Huckabee says, “That’s why Shannon, this is terrible. I think this thing stinks bigger than the hog barn at the Iowa State Fair. And even when Michael Hayden talks, he doesn’t say that the Russians did it. He says, ‘I think they might have.’ Here’s what we do know. There was information being shared by the Obama administration to the Clinton campaign. Robbie Mook said that on Tuesday on Fox and Friends.
