Dr. Rachael Levine now Ass’t Sec of Health, COVID Nursing Home deaths, & DOJ – the intersect

While New York has been in the news regarding the DOJ dropping the investigation into Nursing Homes Covid deaths, little time has been given to the other democrat controlled states who also had the bright idea of putting COVID positive patients there as well. New York and Michigan got the good news last week that they were off the DOJ hook, and now we hear that Pennsylvania too got the news. Across the country, tens of thousands of COVID-19 patients were accepted by nursing homes, more than 250,000 in the 12 months through March 1, according to federal data.

In Pennsylvania, about 65% of coronavirus deaths were nursing-home residents, and in counties in the hardest hit southeastern part of the state, long-term care residents account for as much as 80% of county deaths. New Jersey had 3,200 residents of long-term care homes die due to complications from the virus, about 40% of the statewide total. About 58% of the deaths in Delaware lived in nursing homes, and 46% of the fatalities in Maryland were at nursing homes, prompting Gov. Larry Hogan to order residents and staff members at nursing homes be tested for coronavirus.

I have an idea of one good reason why the investigation was dropped.

Let’s connect a few dots:

Enter Dr. Rachael Levine, former Pennsylvania Secretary of Health. She/he is particularly loathsome. Not only did she send sick patients into nursing homes, just as the news broke in March, she moved her mother out of one and into a hotel. Think that was bad? She got rewarded by joining Biden’s administration. Now she could protect herself and her fellow Democrat States by keeping an eye on the investigation if there were to be one. Better yet, protect herself and others in her position. Her job now?Joe Biden’s assistant secretary of health.

 

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — The Justice Department told Gov. Tom Wolf’s office on Thursday that it has decided not to open an investigation into whether Pennsylvania violated federal law by ordering nursing homes to accept residents who had been treated for COVID-19 in a hospital.

Let’s take a look at how absurd this whole thing is.

Pennsylvania Health Secretary Moves Mother to Hotel – Tom Wolf, Rachel Levine Hypocrites?

Pennsylvania made nursing homes accept COVID-19 patients, but health secretary’s mom was moved to hotel. Even as coronavirus patients were being funneled into state nursing homes, the state’s Secretary of Health, Rachel Levine, removed her mother from one of those facilities, lodging her instead in a hotel. She claims it was “personal care” – either way, it was “congregate living” no matter what she pleads.

Levine will become the first openly transgender federal official if confirmed by the Senate.

“Dr. Rachel Levine will bring the steady leadership and essential expertise we need to get people through this pandemic — no matter their zip code, race, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, or disability — and meet the public health needs of our country in this critical moment and beyond,” Biden said in a statement on her nomination. “She is a historic and deeply qualified choice to help lead our administration’s health efforts.”

PA transgendered Sec of Health focusing on LGBT, Trannny on COVID data collection

The news comes as Levine, the nation’s first openly transgender health secretary, comes under fire over the department’s handling of nursing homes — particularly a March guidance that essentially instructed senior living facilities to accept patients who were diagnosed with the coronavirus.

Unhinged PA Gov Wolf and Sec of Health Levine Devastate Nursing Homes

It gets even better this week. Not content that Nursing homes and hospitals are up to their eyeballs taking care of sick patients, she will have them go through all of the medical records and try and figure out if they are LGBTQ … add how many additional letters you need. Go figure. Priorities my dear… will some one tell her/him? For what purpose Dr. Levine? How happy should the LGBT community be that she is having people tracing their contacts? Going through their medical records?

Gov. Tom Wolf’s (D) office this week announced that the state’s health department, under transgender Health Secretary Rachel Levine, is focusing on gender identity and sexual orientation or expression in the state’s collection of coronavirus data.

American Spectator:

May 29, 2020

Note what is alleged: On March 29, Pennsylvania joined New York and other northeastern states in “ordering nursing homes to admit medically stable residents infected with the coronavirus,” despite warnings from groups like the American Health Care Association that such “health directives” could “unnecessarily cost more lives.”

These intrepid government officials should have heeded something known as common sense. Who but a fool would move infected COVID-19 patients into nursing homes? What was option two, moving them into Walmarts?

 

The article continued, “The death toll is devastating, according to interviews with nursing-home officials, patients’ families, health-care advocates, government officials and from an examination of state records … across the Northeast.” And yet, among the plagued northeast, the infection rate in nursing homes is uniquely bad in Pennsylvania.

…..

That possibility is getting major attention across the state. A devastating investigative piece was published in the Bucks County Courier Times (jointly done with reporters from USA Today), a county with a huge number of COVID-19 cases (the vast majority of Pennsylvania’s cases are in eastern counties close to New York and New Jersey). Titled, “States ordered nursing homes to take COVID-19 residents — Thousands Died,” it documents the disproportionate deaths in Pennsylvania nursing homes

United States now: Guilty until proven innocent

 

On 13 July, the Department of Justice announced a reversal of its previous judicial guidelines, entitled “Start by believing.”   This un-Constitutional gem actually instructed prosecutors to begin all investigations with the premise that the accused is guilty (rather than innocent.)

… And Justice for All

by Mustang

 

When our legal system prosecutes some people and not others for the same crimes, we have created systemic injustice to all Americans through the politicization of our laws.  When our legal system hides behind secret courts to consider whether they should issue warrants against our citizens, then our courts have perverted the spirit and the intent of the United States Constitution. 

When government, through the creation of secret courts, declares persons or groups of persons guilty of some crime and punishes them without trial, then that government in effect nullifies those citizen’s civil rights.  Lately, we seem to have forgotten that all persons are innocent until proven otherwise in a court of law. 

The US Congress, in league with the Department of Justice and Federal Bureau of Investigation, issued a de facto bill of attainder against Donald J. Trump and got away with it.  No one seems to care about that because it was Donald J. Trump, whom no one on the political left likes.

“When we say, ‘One nation, under God, with liberty and justice for all,’ we are talking about all people.  We either ought to believe it or quit saying it.”  —Hubert Humphrey

 

And then we have the situation where literally hundreds of citizens have been arrested by federal agents and charged with a wide range of crimes relating to the demonstrations at the nation’s capital on 6 January 2021.  These are people whom the FBI arrested and retained behind bars without a bail hearing.  Many of them, so we are told, remain in solitary confinement.  Is this American Justice in 2021?

 

“It is not possible to be in favor of justice for some people and not be in favor of justice for all people.”  —Martin Luther King, Jr.

 

I’ll suggest that our government has long perverted our legal system — and to such extent that it no longer reflects the intent of the U. S. Constitution.  We should only charge people when there is a reasonable belief that they have violated our laws, such views being only after a full and impartial investigation of the facts and circumstances of some event or series of events, and then afford these people the complete protection of our laws in an open court.  The spirit of our law is “innocent until proven guilty.”  That isn’t what we have in the United States today, however.

 

“Congress shall make no law respecting the establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof, or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press, or the right of the people peacefully to assemble and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” — First Amendment.

 

“The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”  — Fourth Amendment.

 

“No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.”  — Fifth Amendment.

 

The government’s arbitrary violations of the U. S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights have been substantial over the past twenty or so years.  It may not matter much to anyone — unless or until the government charges them with serious offenses, and then it is more than a matter of having one’s day in court.  It is the terrible effects of the accusation, observing the total weight of the government descending upon an accused’s status as a free citizen, the financial ruin of hiring attorneys in matters that can take years to resolve … all during which time the government has taken away something that unrecoverable: their reputation.

 

On 13 July, the Department of Justice announced a reversal of its previous judicial guidelines, entitled “Start by believing.”  This un-Constitutional gem actually instructed prosecutors to begin all investigations with the premise that the accused is guilty (rather than innocent) and then proceed in the following manner:

  1. Strive to make the sexual encounter appear to be non-consensual by teaching the complainant to seem “more innocent.”
  2. Always conceal inconsistencies in the complainant’s statements by not writing a detailed report for any victim or witness who has already provided a detailed, written summary of events.
  3. Always slant the investigative report so that it increases the chance of a conviction.  Investigators should always focus on witnesses’ statements that only serve to corroborate the victim’s account of the incident.

There can be no more remarkable example of the government’s intentional violation of citizens’ rights than the “Start by believing” investigative methods stipulated as preferred by the US Department of Justice.  As a means to ensure that state and federal prosecutors followed these guidelines, the DOJ offered “technical assistance grants” to state and federal attorneys’ offices under the “End Violence Against Women International,” amounting to $10 million.

 

In effect, the DOJ has encouraged prosecuting officials and law enforcement agencies to violate law enforcement ethical standards and violate defendants’ rights to honest, impartial, and fair investigations — which are always the basis for prosecution.  From the same people who continue to lecture all of us on the disparate treatment of black citizens, the “Start by believing” methodology had a tremendously negative impact on black male defendants, which significantly increased the likelihood that they would be convicted of a sex crime, even when it was clear to any investigator of average intelligence that the complainant was lying.

 

Meanwhile, the Center for Prosecutor Integrity notes that the DOJ continues to promote “traumatic-informed” investigative methods, which urges investigative officials to provide an empathetic ear to all alleged victims of sex-related crimes.  Again, this DOJ policy is in clear contravention to the spirit and intent of the US Constitution and Bill of Rights because it encourages biased and unethical methods in criminal investigations/prosecutions.

 

By the way, if nothing else, the preceding should make one wonder “what else” the nation’s Department of Justice has done to violate the rights of citizens who stand accused of breaking the law.  It should make one wonder how many innocent persons are in prison for something they didn’t do, and beyond that, wonder what kind of “lawyers” our top law schools are turning out to become rogue prosecutors (a very politicized position, as it turns out).

AG Garland prepares for election audit war maelstrom – doubles Department’s voting rights staff

“The Tell:” June 8, 2021. The stage is set.

Former Attorney General Eric Holder offered strong words of condemnation on Monday for what he called a “fraudit” after MSNBC host Rachel Maddow brought up recent controversies related to voting rights and the GOP-led Arizona Senate’s audit in the state’s most populous county.

“All the things they are doing now are counterproductive. They are without basis, and they will hurt, they will harm, our hard-won democracy,” Holder said, referring to the Maricopa review and similar efforts sprouting in places across the country as former President Donald Trump pushes claims of fraud in the 2020 presidential contest. Holder further urged the Justice Department to become “aggressively involved” in pursuing possible violations of federal law in the case of the audit and to prosecute violators of these laws when needed.

Holder praised the DOJ letter as setting a good framework for how the Biden administration might get involved but said it wasn’t enough. “Letters are fine, but it has to be followed up with action,” he said. From the Washington Examiner.

MSNBC titles the clip:

DOJ Should Be ‘Aggressively Involved’ When Sham Audits Violate Federal Law

Just like magic, looks what happens. One would almost think Holder has a direct line to the WH and Garland.

Attorney General Merrick Garland on June 11 announced that he would double the number of Justice Department staff working on voting rights enforcement over the next 30 days and provide additional guidance on voting rights and redistricting. So the Washington Post says. In truth, he is preparing for the concluding election audits that will present a maelstrom.

In a post that lays out the whole deal and not to be missed:

Conservative Tree House:

The conclusion:

The bottom line is this….  AG Merrick Garland knows a powder keg is very likely to explode as soon as the majority of American people discover just how manipulated the election of 2020 was.  His announcement to double the staff of the DOJ Civil Rights Division voter unit is not to protect election integrity, but rather to position his resources for a war against a looming storm of election review outcomes…. and the White House is so far exposed, they are positioning to use the military to protect their position.

The deep and irrefutable research has been taking place, mostly very quietly, in the background.  I would expect the government response to this will be a combination of the DOJ/FBI “domestic extremist” narratives, combined with racism accusations and claims of election disinformation.

The Alinsky model: Isolate, Ridicule and Marginalize your political opposition, in combination with the use of arrests and threats by the justice department.

Let’s see how things are going in Arizona as the audit is winding down. June 13, 2021

This is one of those interesting explanations that comes in handy later on.  Arizona Senate Liaison Ken Bennett explains what “duplicated ballots” are, what creates them (interesting), and what is the process for auditing them.  I was unaware in Arizona -under some circumstances- you can vote by email and Fax machine.

We’ve seen the publicly available evidence for the sweeping paper ballot fraud as well as the election machine fraud and that’s criminally horrendous enough. But I never heard about the ability to fax in ballots before. How many fraudulent ballots were faxed in from China? Mexico? Russia? How do “We, the people of the United States” get control back of our elections and end all this fraud?

Fulton County Election Official Admits Chain of Custody Documents Missing for 2020 Absentee Ballots Deposited in Drop Boxes

In a stunning admission about the critical chain of custody documents for absentee ballots deposited into drop boxes in the November 3, 2020 election, a Fulton County election official told The Georgia Star News on Wednesday that “a few forms are missing” and that “some procedural paperwork may have been misplaced.”

Star News analysis of drop box ballot transfer forms for absentee ballots deposited in drop boxes provided by Fulton County in response to an Open Records Request showed that 385 transfer forms out of an estimated 1,565 transfer forms Fulton County said should have been provided are missing – a number that is significantly greater than “a few” by any objective standard.

On Sunday, The Star News published a story which included the files containing digital images of the 1,180 transfer forms that Fulton County did provide. Those digital images can be viewed here.

This is the first time that any election official at either the state or county level from a key battleground state has made an admission of significant error in election procedures for the November 3, 2020 election.

  • President Biden was certified as the winner of Georgia’s 16 Electoral College votes in the 2020 election by the narrow margin of less than 12,000 votes over former President Donald Trump out of a total of 5 million votes cast statewide.

To date, The Star News has obtained absentee ballot drop box forms from 59 counties that provide chain of custody documentation for 266,492 absentee ballots deposited in drop boxes during the November 3, 2020 election, which means that no chain of custody documentation has been produced for about 333,000 absentee ballots deposited in drop boxes out of an estimated 600,000 absentee ballots deposited in drop boxes during that election.

I could go out on a limb and wonder if this is one of the reasons the Capitol remains locked down with the desire to maintain a National Guard presence. I could go further and add Sundance’s comment over at Conservative Tree House:

The next war will not come from foreign soil, it is about to happen based on a great awakening in the heavily corrupt and manipulated voting system in the United States.  The battle is about to happen right here on our soil.

AG Garland Show Down at the AZ OK Corral Voter Audit

An Arizona state Senator has warned US Attorney General Merrick Garland that he’ll ‘spend time in prison’ if he interferes with the 2020 post-election audit, after Garland announced on Friday that the Justice Department will look into whether any federal laws were broken – and claimed the state was employing ‘abnormal’ methods.

U.S. Capitol Police Gave Protesters OK To Enter Capitol

 

It is said there are more than 14000 hours of tape covering the happenings of the January 6, 2021 incident at the Capitol in D.C. Here is one of the poor fellow Chansley AKA Q Shaman who is still in solitary confinement for trespassing and disorderly conduct. Yet they are still rounding up hundreds who at the most will be charged with trespassing. Maybe the FBI could find better things to do at this point.

 

Rumble — In this short clip, Capitol Police officer Keith Robishaw warns protesters—including “Q shaman” Jacob Chansley—inside the Capitol Building on January 6 against using violence. Chansley and another protester are then seen instructing other protesters to be nonviolent as they exercise their right to assemble.

A newly-obtained video shows United States Capitol Police officers speaking with several January 6 protestors—including Jacob Chansley, the so-called “Q shaman”—inside the Capitol that afternoon.

One officer, identified in the video and confirmed by charging documents as Officer Keith Robishaw, appears to tell Chansely’s group they won’t stop them from entering the building. “We’re not against . . . you need to show us . . . no attacking, no assault, remain calm,” Robishaw warns. Chansley and another protestor instruct the crowd to act peacefully. “This has to be peaceful,” Chansley yelled. “We have the right to peacefully assemble.”

Watch:

 

 

The video directly contradicts what government prosecutors allege in a complaint filed January 8 against Chansley: “Robishaw and other officers calmed the protestors somewhat and directed them to leave the area from the same way they had entered. Chansley approached Officer Robishaw and screamed, among other things, that this was their house, and that they were there to take the Capitol, and to get Congressional leaders.”

Chansley is not charged with assaulting an officer; he faces several counts for trespassing and disorderly conduct. He has been incarcerated since January, denied bail awaiting trial. He has no criminal record.

There was no one armed inside the Capitol is has been reported, yet we are still waiting to hear about Babbitt who was murdered.

 

Federal prosecutors will not charge a police officer who shot and killed a woman as she climbed through the broken part of a door during the insurrection at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.

Authorities had considered for months whether criminal charges were appropriate for the Capitol Police officer who fatally shot Ashli Babbitt, 35, an Air Force veteran from San Diego. The Justice Department’s decision, though expected, officially closes out the investigation.

DOJ planned on arresting Chauvin and others immediately even if acquitted

Whatever happened to double jeopardy? And now they will put Chauvin through another trial? No doubt the Feds will make sure he gets a “hanging judge.”  One thing is for sure, no one will be willing to be a defense witness. That is the lesson that the government is giving.

Chauvin Case Takes Ugly Turn – Maryland DA to Investigate Defense Medical Examiner

A chilling turn is taking place with the Chauvin Murder Trial. A witness for the defense will have the full weight of the Maryland Attorney General’s office bear down to attempt to crush him. They are attempting to discredit him, dishonor him so that there will be few future defense witnesses willing to offer testimony in unpopular cases? For the remaining police officers involved in the Derek Chauvin case, the message is clear. Defense witnesses will be few and far between.

Even worse we learn 431 Doctors from around the country chimed in to the AG… “conclusions were outside the bounds of accepted forensic practice and all of his previous work should be questioned.”

The very basis of a murder trial is to present rebuttal to the charges. How many times have we seen opposing Forensic Pathologists duel it out… famous ones at that and highly paid.

This image from video shows the certificate of death of George Floyd that was entered into evidence, as Hennepin County Judge Peter Cahill presides over court Firday, April 9, 2021, in the trial of former Minneapolis police Officer Derek Chauvin, at

Here we go:

Leading up to Derek Chauvin’s murder trial, Justice Department officials had spent months gathering evidence to indict the ex-Minneapolis police officer on federal police brutality charges, but they feared the publicity frenzy could disrupt the state’s case.

So they came up with a contingency plan: If Chauvin were found not guilty on all counts or the case ended in a mistrial, they would arrest him at the courthouse, according to sources familiar with the planning discussions.

The backup plan would not be necessary. On April 20, the jury found Chauvin guilty on all three murder and manslaughter counts, sending him to the state’s most secure lockdown facility to await sentencing, and avoiding the riots many feared could engulf the city once again.

Now, with Chauvin’s state trial out of the way, federal prosecutors are moving forward with their case. They plan to ask a grand jury to indict Chauvin and the other three ex-officers involved in George Floyd’s killing — J. Alexander Kueng, Thomas Lane and Tou Thao — on charges of civil rights violations, a source said.

AG Barr: No Evidence of Voter Fraud That Would Change Outcome of 2020 Election

AG Barr Destroys His Name for All Eternity – His Actions Today Confirm He Is Just Another Card-Carrying Swamp Rat

Barr claimed that the FBI has followed up on specific complaints of voter fraud yet they have uncovered no evidence that would change the outcome.  The AP reported today:

His comments come despite President Donald Trump’s repeated claims that the election was stolen, and his refusal to concede his loss to President-Elect Joe Biden.

AG Barr had a good scam going but now it’s over.  We now know definitively what he is all about.  He is just another crooked swamp creature.

As noted earlier today, Melissa Carone, a very compelling witness who testified in Tuesday’s Michigan hearing, said she called the FBI on November 5 to report numerous instances of fraud, but the FBI never called her back.

A Dominion-trained IT contractor named Melissa Carone absolutely blew up the Michigan hearing on Tuesday.

Melissa Carone dropped many truth bombs, blew the whistle on Dominion workers and revealed ballots were being tabulated in the Department of Elections which is completely illegal.

Ms. Carone stunned the Michigan state lawmakers when she revealed there were tabulation machines at the Department of Elections.

DOJ Docs Show Rosenstein Advising Mueller ‘the Boss’ Doesn’t Know About Their Communications —  Judicial Watch

Judicial Watch has been doing all the heavy lifting and has released many more documents that unfortunately no one is reading.

Anyone with some time this weekend will find a fascinating treasure trove to look through at their website. I leave you with  a tidbit of the Rosenstein wire where he indeed planned on doing it.

On September 23, Judicial Watch released a two-page memo, dated May 16, 2017, by then-Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe detailing how then-Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein proposed wearing a wire into the Oval Office “to collect additional evidence on the president’s true intentions.” McCabe writes that Rosenstein said he thought it was possible because “he was not searched when he entered the White House.”

Feds say Michael Flynn hindering case by pushing conspiracy theories

 

With the total news focus on the attempted coup of one Donald J. Trump it is easy to miss the little stories of the Deep State. They are equally important as we get a glimpse into their continued machinations.

Michael Flynn

None reveal more than the continuing saga of Michael Flynn. No need to review the sordid details of how we got here. But the poor fellow is still being hounded by the DOJ. Paging AG Barr? Can you not get the boot of the government off his face? This tells us the DOJ marches on to their own drummer.

From NBC News

Federal prosecutors this week accused Michael Flynn, President Donald Trump’s former national security adviser, of trafficking in conspiracy theories as part of his effort to force the government to turn over documents from the Russia probe.

Flynn, who cooperated in the special counsel investigation after pleading guilty to lying to the FBI, has taken an adversarial stance  Ed: (you can laugh here) since hiring a new legal team in June.

In a court filing in late August, Flynn’s attorneys accused prosecutors of suppressing exculpatory evidence and alleged that he was targeted by federal agents for “concocted and political purposes.”

In a new motion, prosecutors offered a stinging response to Flynn’s legal salvo.

“It is a fishing expedition in hopes of advancing conspiracy theories related to the U.S. government’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election,” wrote the prosecutors from the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia.

Among the Flynn claims the prosecutors rebut is the allegation that former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe said during the investigation, “First we f— Flynn, then we f— Trump.”

Prosecutors said Flynn’s lawyers first raised the claim in January 2018 and sourced it to an email from a news reporter. After the government debunked it, the new court papers say, the defense revived it last July and this time sourced it to a staff member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.

“Once again, the government reviewed information and conducted interviews, and once again confirmed that the allegations were completely false,” the prosecutors said.

…. best laugh line in the post:

“The motion even attacks attorneys in the Special Counsel’s Office who had no role in the criminal investigation of the defendant,” the court papers say.

It is worth rolling over to the full story just so we can keep our finger on the pulse.. Read more at NBC News

Flynn has a very sympathetic Judge who has castigated the DOJ. Flynn has a new legal team. What is clear is that once again the DOJ is still trying to break him financially. Month after month Flynn has to return to court.

Other than that all is well in the swamp.

The Intelligence I.G. Atkinson – another plant by the Deep State

 

The “Tell” that all was not right with the Intelligence I.G. Michael Atkinson were the rave reviews being handed out by Trump’s foes. An interesting factoid: He assumed office on May 17, 2018.  Approved by a voice vote. Therefore no record of the vote. Nominated in November 2017. Thus a modicum of investigation of this man would have revealed major red flags with this fellow. The Mueller probe was well under way.

On May 17, 2017, Mueller was appointed by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein as special counsel overseeing an investigation into allegations of Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election and related matters.

So much for the vetting of one of the most important positions.

Only the second Intelligence I.G. Keep all that in mind. But I digress-

The media has been fawning over him with the P.S. “an appointment by Trump.” Attorney’s Di Genova and wife have been giving out hints that all was not well with him. The shoe now drops with this excellent post by American Greatness

Do read the whole thing… it reads like a spy novel. But it’s for real. A few highlights that don’t do it justice:

Michael Atkinson

The former prosecutor’s resume is touted as proof that the long-time public servant only is acting in the best interest of the country; his motives are not to be questioned, we are chastised. (This description follows a pattern similar to the way the media portrayed dossier author Christopher Steele and Special Counsel Robert Mueller.)

In July 2016, the exact month that former FBI Director James Comey officially opened a case against the Trump campaign, Atkinson was named senior counsel to John Carlin, the head of the National Security Division. Carlin was Robert Mueller’s chief of staff when he ran the FBI and was appointed NSD chief by President Obama in 2013.

Carlin’s name has surfaced numerous times in the congressional inquiry into the Trump-Russia collusion hoax. According to closed-door testimony by former FBI lawyer Lisa Page, Carlin regularly was briefed by former deputy FBI Director Andy McCabe on the Trump-Russia collusion probe.

Under questioning by Rep. James Jordan (R-Ohio) last year, one of Carlin’s top aides confirmed that Carlin notified him in August 2016 that the FBI had opened an investigation into the Trump campaign and that a team of NSD officials worked with the FBI on the case.

…That means Carlin’s shop was involved in handling the FISA warrant on Trump campaign associate Carter Page. The original FISA warrant, signed by former FBI Director James Comey and Carlin’s colleague, former deputy attorney general Sally Yates, used the bogus Steele dossier as evidence to obtain the FISA court’s permission to spy on Page for one year. The warrant accused Page of being a foreign agent yet he has never been charged with a crime.

Another red flag is that Atkinson sent two letters about the “whistleblower” to the House Intelligence committee instead of its Senate counterpart. During his January 2018 public testimony to the Senate Intelligence committee prior to his confirmation, Atkinson said if there was a dispute with the Director of National Intelligence about the veracity of a claim, he would “talk to this Committee if that situation arose to that level, to keep you informed about those events.”

But Atkinson instead notified the highly-partisan House Intelligence committee led by Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), the same lawmaker who has lied to the American people for three years about evidence of Russian collusion. In a letter dated September 9 addressed to Schiff and Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), Atkinson alerted the committee that the acting Director of National Intelligence did not agree with Atkinson’s judgment that the claim was an “urgent concern.” (An assessment somewhat laughable now that the call’s transcript is public.)

Continue..American Greatness

Find out who it was that suggested Trump appoint this mole and you will find the traitor within. Ask who and why he was not vetted and you will find more of the deep state. Was this just another of the so called “insurance policy?”
Yes, all is well in the swamp.

Court grants new Discovery on Clinton E-mails – Hillary may be deposed!

 

No thanks to the Trump DOJ or State Department the investigation into Hillary’s Emails continues. Fighting it all the way. Still it plods along.The court ruled that the Clinton email system was “one of the gravest modern offenses to government transparency.”

Thank one honest judge U.S. District Court Judge Lamberth who has ordered Obama administration senior State Department officials, lawyers and Clinton aides to be deposed or answer written questions under oath.

(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch announced on Friday that a federal judge granted seven additional depositions, three interrogatories and four document requests related to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of a private, unauthorized email server.

Hillary Clinton and her former top aide and current lawyer Cheryl Mills were given 30 days to oppose being deposed by Judicial Watch (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of State (No. 1:14-cv-01242)).

Hillary clinton

The court rejected Justice and State Department arguments to protect Clinton and the agencies from additional discovery and ordered agency lawyers to respond to Judicial Watch’s questions about their knowledge of the Clinton email issue.

The court granted all of Judicial Watch’s requested discovery but gave Clinton and Mills 30 days to file any opposition to the requests to question them in person under oath.

The new court-ordered discovery allows Judicial Watch to take testimony and gather evidence of Clinton’s handling of emails, specifically in an “after action memo” drafted by Heather Samuelson, Clinton’s senior advisor at State and White House liaison.

The memo was created in December 2014 to memorialize the Clinton team’s processing of the Clinton emails. The discovery also asks when Justice and State Department attorneys learned about Clinton’s private email use; and what senior records-keeping officials at the State Department knew about Clinton’s emails and when they knew it.

This past Friday, Judicial Watch submitted the document request to Hillary Clinton’s attorneys for the “after action memo” that Samuelson created.

More at Judicial watch

One has to wonder why Judicial Watch has to do all the heavy lifting concerning government scandals but I guess we do know the answer.
