Lisa Page as ‘The Victim’ on Maddow show – videos

 

Talk about trying rehabilitation as a last result. She attempts to redeem herself on Maddow’s show. Did she do it?

The background:

Lisa Page filed a lawsuit against the DOJ last Tuesday for violating the Privacy Act by “unlawfully” releasing text messages she sent to her FBI lover Peter Strzok.

I can’t wait to see the depositions that result from this misadventure. That is if the FBI doesn’t settle the case and give her a few bucks.

Lisa Page and her FBI lover Peter Strzok unleashed the might of the FBI in an effort to prevent Trump from winning the 2016 election — but they both failed.

When their plot failed, they continued their attacks on Trump by joining Mueller’s team but were thrown off the special counsel in the summer of 2017 after IG Horowitz caught them exchanging anti-Trump text messages.

In what is believed to be the most damning text exchange between the FBI lovebirds was a discussion about an “insurance policy” to keep Trump out of office.

“I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy’s office…that there’s no way [Trump] gets elected…but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk,” Strzok text messaged to Page in an Aug. 15, 2016 exchange, referring to Andrew McCabe.

Here are a few clips of the interview.

FISA judge Contreras of Flynn fame forces WH to accept Playboy reporter

 

Judge Contreras of FISA fame. The same activist judge who railroaded Flynn into a guilty plea and then had to recuse himself. A friend of Peter Strzok and his gal pal Lisa Page. Now Contreras is going to tell Trump that a “reporter” from Playboy mag has to have WH press credentials? What happened to separation of powers?

Deadline reported:

A federal judge on Tuesday ordered the White House to restore the hard pass of Playboy’s correspondent Brian Karem, whose credentials were suspended after an incident in July in which he got in argument with former Trump aide Sebastian Gorka following a Rose Garden ceremony.

U.S. District Judge Rudolph Contreras granted Karem’s motion for a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction.

After White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham informed Karem she was suspending his hard pass for 30 days, calling his conduct “unacceptable and disruptive,” he sued, seeking a temporary restraining order and a preliminary injunction to reinstate his access to the White House grounds.

Playboy’s current circulation is about 200,000, down to publishing quarterly at a hefty $24.99 an issue and going back to focusing on nude women. Having lost more than 97% of its readership from its heyday of over 7 and a half million, it’s difficult to understand why Playboy has some magic entitlement to a White House press pass. It cannot be credibly claimed that Playboy is a news magazine. Giving Playboy’s pass to The Onion would serve the nation better. Why a press pass in the first place?

Robert’s is responsible for the FISA court, as such it has been reported that he oversees the court. One can only ask, where is Roberts in all of this and why has there been nothing done about the abuse? There is more to Roberts than we know?

A refresher

On Dec. 7, U.S. District Court Judge Rudolph Contreras recused himself from overseeing former national security adviser Michael Flynn’s case without providing a reason.

The relationship between Strzok and U.S. District Court Judge Rudolph Contreras, who was appointed to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, was disclosed in text messages between Strzok and FBI attorney Lisa Page, and obtained by Fox News.

“Rudy is on the FISC! Did you know that?” Page said in a text to Strzok in July 2016. “Just appointed two months ago.”

“I did,” Strozk said in response. “We talked about it before and after. I need to get together with him.”

The two also discussed how Strzok needed to be careful about what he discussed with Contreras to avoid putting him “into a situation where he’d have to recuse himself.”

Page said she couldn’t “imagine either one of your could talk about anything in detail meaningful enough to warrant recusal.”

”Strzok’s job as a counterintelligence agent meant that he interacted with the FISC on a regular basis and the messages reveal that Strzok and Contreras both made appearances at a recent “graduation party.”

The day after Flynn’s guilty plea, reports emerged detailing Strzok’s text messages with Page, and on Dec. 7 Contreras recused himself from the case without providing a reason.

“That explains why he recused himself,” former U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia Joe DiGenova said, according to Fox News. “He knew he was a friend of Strzok’s when the case came to him. He should allow Flynn to withdraw the guilty plea.”

Enter one Judge Rudolph Contreras

He was appointed to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) court in 2016.

Current Chief Justice John Roberts has been in his role since 2005 and therefore he has appointed all the judges to the FISA court.  Knowing this, it is concerning that Judge Roberts also is responsible for the makeup of the current FISA court.

FISA Judge in Flynn Case Blocks Oil and Gas Drilling – 500 Miles in Wyoming

 

Obama appointed US District Judge Rudolph Contreras blocked oil and gas drilling across almost 500 square miles in Wyoming this week

Judge Rudolph Contreras, an Obama-appointed judge from the District of Columbia, said the oil drilling projects must take global warming junk science into account. This fine fellow probably was never even in Wyoming, yet he’s going to shut down the whole thing.

But just who is this fellow? And where is Chief Justice Roberts in this whole thing? Why did Robert’s appoint all Obama Judges to the FISA court? Is this action by Contreras pay back for getting his fingers caught in the cookie jar with Strzok? Just something to think about.

The Judge’s name sure rang a bell with me.

Every judge but one 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.

 

Robert’s is responsible for the FISA court, as such it has been reported that he oversees the court. One can only ask, where is Roberts in all of this and why has there been nothing done about the abuse? There is more to Roberts than we know?

See my earlier post:

Are the FISA Court members dirty?

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%.

Bombshells at IG Horowitz hearing on second day

 

Believe it or not, I endured the entire hearing yesterday. My big take away was that there were at least 15 IG staff members as well as Horowitz that “together” came to the stated conclusion of the report of no bias that many of us find unbelievable. It appears there are drafts.

My other take away was that Horowitz only had access to those individuals available. No subpoenas were issued. Thus how could any conclusion be determined as to bias? It was pointed out that those questioned could have had the same bias of that of Strzok and Page.

YouTube has the full Gowdy hearing statements. Well worth going there and listen to the full thing. He did good. Zero Hedge has some good highlights, wander over to their place for the goodies, here are a few:

While Monday’s testimony by Horowitz and FBI Director Christopher Wray was certainly eye-opening – Congressional Investigators uncovered several game-changing bombshells on Tuesday that will re-frame the entire discussion. Hat-tip to Paul Sperry for reporting these stunning developments in real time.  Zero Hedge

    • There were no actual subjects of the Hillary Clinton email investigation, meaning that neither Hillary nor any of her top aides – including Huma Abedin and the IT guys who set up her illegal server and then used “bleachbit” to destroy evidence (for which they received immunity) – were ever under any direct FBI scrutiny. Horowitz found this “surprising.”

There is at least one and possibly more original drafts of the OIG report, which were subsequently redlined by DOJ/FBI higher-ups.

  • Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) has sent a formal letter to Horowitz requesting “the various drafts of the report, particularly the draft provided to the DOJ and FBI, before those agencies made any changes to the draft report.”

 

  • Horowitz is investigating allegations that FBI officials “edited” agents’ 302 forms – which doument an interview with a suspect or a witness.

A highlight of the hearing:

Obama’s plant in Trump campaign? A Bill Clinton classmate and administration advisor

 

Sure looks like we know who was the spy in the Trump campaign. Better yet, that old Clinton name bounces forward. Is there anything that the Clintons don’t have their long dirty fingers in? How many people do they corrupt? I suggest an older post of mine first:

The Clintons AKA the Corrupters lure one Andrew McCabe into their lair

McCabe is only the beginning. Before this is over, no doubt there will be dozens who were lured by the corrupters and if lucky will only lose their reputation if not spend years behind bars.

NY Post:

Yet there’s another dimension to their chronic crookedness, and it gets insufficient attention even though it might be more important to the nation’s well-being.

“Wherever they go, whatever they do, ethics are trashed and suspicions of criminal conduct follow them like night follows day.”

It is that, in addition to being personally corrupt, the Clintons are corrupters. They are piggish users, with the people and institutions around them inevitably tarnished and sometimes destroyed even as the Clintons escape to their next scam.

But I digressed:

Gateway Pundit:

This past weekend we reported that Internet sleuths determined who the Obama FBI spy was in the Trump campaign.  Now we know he was a classmate of Bill Clinton’s and an advisor to the Clinton Administration!

Jeff Carlson at theMarketswork on last Thursday identified an individual by the name of Stefan Halper as a potential FBI spy into the Trump campaign. (Note that some believe that Obama may have had more than one spy on the Trump campaign).

Carlson determined that George Papadopoulos, the lower level campaign worker for the Trump campaign, appears to have been targeted by three individuals with ties to British and/or U.S. Intelligence: Joseph Mifsud, Alexander Downer and Stefan Halper.

Mifsud and Papadopoulos obtained positions at an organization named the Centre for International Energy and Natural Resources Law & Security. Papadopoulos was a nobody and the Centre sketchy at best. Mifsud vanished in early November 2017, shortly after Papadopoulos was in the news and indicted. His whereabouts are still unknown.

Other sites (Conservative Treehouse) have also pegged Halper as the spy inside the Trump campaign and now it is old news. (Some great work over there)

Today additional research now shows that Halper was a classmate of impeached President Bill Clinton.  Halper apparently knew Bill Clinton well in their days at Oxford.

And ever more research shows that Halper later worked as an Advisor to the Clinton Administration during Clinton’s two terms in office. 

From 1984-2001, Halper was Senior Advisor to the Department of Defense and a Senior Advisor to the Department of Justice.  President Clinton was President from 1993 to 2000 (including after his impeachment).

President Nixon resigned after his team was caught spying on the Democrats at their Watergate Headquarters during the 1972 campaign.

The Obama team and the Clinton campaign spied on the Trump Administration and used the entire government apparatus, including the CIA, FBI, the DOJ and others, to do so.

This is clearly 100 times worse than Watergate! Drain the swamp!

FLASHBACK: AG Sessions said he will not prosecute Clinton or any deep State Criminals

 

America’s Watchtower brings us this headline:  Republican lawmakers send criminal referrals to Jeff Sessions for Hillary Clinton, James Comey, Andrew McCabe, and Loretta Lynch 

Wander over for his take on it. Here is more from Breitbart.

But before you slide over, let me give you a flashback headline from B-ville October, 2017.

AG Sessions says he will not prosecute Clinton or any deep state criminals

Jason Chaffetz, former House of Representatives member and Chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform was on Justice with Judge Janine Pirro Saturday night and he again dropped a BOMBSHELL about Attorney General Jeff Sessions:

Judge Janine: …What can you do?

Chaffetz: Yeah, the State Department has been holding tens of thousands of documents on a case that they claim is closed.  And when I met with Attorney General Sessions much like Ron DeSantis did, I basically got a stiff arm.  I got an Attorney General that said he would not comply, he wasn’t going to do any sort of prosecutions and it’s such a huge difference.  When he was a Senator he would have never put up with that.Judge Janine went on to ask if Sessions was afraid of them (i.e. deep state)?  She also asked if they all (Congress and Washington politicians) had so many skeletons?  The Judge then correctly stated that this is driving Americans crazy and the American people have had it!

When asked whether Jeff Sessions should be out, Chaffetz correctly responded, “Well I don’t know what the case is to keep him!”

Back to  America’s Watchtower:

House Republicans have reportedly sent criminal referrals to Jeff Sessions for Hillary Clinton, James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Loretta Lynch, Peter Strzok, and Lisa Page. Here is more:

Republican lawmakers on Wednesday sent a slew of criminal referrals to Attorney General Jeff Sessions for a number of Obama administration officials and senior FBI employees for violations of the law in connection to the Clinton email and Trump-Russia investigations.

Specifically, they sent criminal referrals to Sessions for: former FBI Director James Comey, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, as well as FBI Special Agent Peter Strzok and his lover, FBI lawyer Lisa Page, for separate violations.

Snip…

I agree, these people should be held to the same standard as ordinary Americans, but does anybody really believe anything is going to come from this? Jeff Sessions has probably already sent these recommendations to the circular file.

The one possible exception could be Andrew McCabe after an FBI Inspector General report found he lied multiple times while under oath. This report will be hard to ignore by an honest Attorney General but we have Jeff Sessions so, as in the case with the others, I would not hold my breath waiting for justice.

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.
