Two Years Late: Wray’s FBI Allows Senate Judiciary Committee to Interview Joe Pientka

Then-Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee Chuck Grassley first sought the FBI’s release to interview agent Joe Pientka way back in 2018, but worthless Director Christopher Wray had stonewalled that request for more than two years. This week, likely thanks to the intervention of Attorney General William Barr, the stone wall finally came down:

Pientka, of course, was one of two FBI agents – the other was Peter Strzok – who conducted the agency’s entrapment interview of General Mike Flynn on the orders of then-Director James Comey. Comey in turn was working on direct orders from Barack Hussein Obama His Own Self, and his vice president, Joe Biden.

What current Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham will do with Pientka’s testimony remains to be seen, of course. Graham’s motives are always suspect, especially so since he did literally nothing in this arena for 18 solid months prior to starting his hearing process in May of this year.

Graham’s action also pissed off staff for Senator Grassley, who wasn’t invited to the interview, and whose staffers were surprised by Herridge’s report and angry they were not included. From a report at the Washington Examiner:

“We weren’t aware that it was happening, and we learned about it after the fact,” the GOP aide said. “We weren’t in the room, we don’t know how long it lasted, and we don’t know what topics were covered. At the end of the day, we just want to make sure that the issues that we need clarity on were discussed in that interview. It would’ve been a lot easier if we were in the room.”

The aide added: “We know more about Pientka now than in 2018, and we probably have even more questions now about his role, given the broader understanding of what he was up to.”

[End]

Really bad form, Lindsey.

But then, when you’re trying to give the appearance of conducting a real investigation without really doing so, bad form is one of the most useful tools in your toolbox.

Graham is most likely trying to run out the clock until election day in hopes that Creepy Uncle Quid Pro China Joe Biden will win and make all of this inconvenient stuff go away. We have to remember that the fingerprints of Graham’s hero in life, John McCain, are all over Spygate and Obamagate, an inconvenient truth that Graham would rather not be the one to reveal.

So, he is slow-playing this plodding “investigation” in order to placate the voters back home, since he is up for re-election this year. But no one should expect the Senate Judiciary effort to bear any real fruit until Grassley re-assumes the chairmanship next January.

But hey, at least Graham can claim credit for finally, at long last, getting Joe Pientka on the record. It’s the very least he could do.

That is all.

Sunday News Roundup: Abrams Eclipse, Trump Fires IG and Crowded ‘Closed’ Beaches

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II

Today’s Washington Post contains a fawning, frankly disgusting profile of Georgia gubernatorial looooooser Stacy Abrams, in an obvious attempt to boost her chances of becoming Quid Pro China Joe’s eventual running mate. This is the photo the Post chose to use with the profile:

It looks like she’s a one-woman solar eclipse.

Honestly, this ongoing media/Democrat effort to turn the quite un-accomplished Abrams into some sort of national super-woman is just bizarre. She’s never accomplished anything more than winning an election in an overwhelmingly Democrat district to be a state representative. Yet, she has become a sort of cult hero whose supporters appear to honestly believe she is the best the national Democrat Party has to offer.

You could never make this stuff up.

By tha ordah of Govnah Ralph KKK Blackface Coonman Northam of tha Commonwealth of Vahginyah, tha Vahginyah Beach Oceanfront was ahficially closed yestahday. This heah is what it looked lahk:

Warm weather draws crowds to the Virginia Beach Oceanfront on Saturday, May 16, 2020. Seen from the Virginia Beach Fishing Pier.

See any masks being worn there? No, not the KKK masks that Northam likes to wear – I’m talking about medical masks. See any social distancing going on? These are Americans, and they have had enough of Northam’s abuse based on Anthony Fauci’s nonsensical advisories.

Speaking of Americans, this was the scene in Orange County, CA on Saturday:

Additional California freedom rallies took place Saturday in San Diego, Los Angeles and San Francisco. Cool.

Meanwhile, this happened yesterday in Oregon:

Ms. Graham has been fined $14,000 by the Alinskyite radical, Gov. Kate Brown. Graham has filed an appeal, which she will ultimately win, but in the meantime, Gov. Brown and her jackbooted thugs can and probably will make her life a living hell.

Your Democrat Party at work.

In Michigan, the hairdressers continue to fight back against the edicts of Herr Gretchen:

Question: Why do Democrats hate hairdressers? It’s a national epidemic. Weird.

The ghouls at Bloomberg politics fantasize about President Trump testing positive for the Wuhan Virus:

 

It’s 1937 in Berlin…oh wait, no, it’s 2020 in Swampscott…

Tim Graham at Newsbusters.com has a great writeup on the corrupt news media’s continuing freakout over CBS’s Catherine Herridge and her habit of – gasp! – objectively reporting actual news. Here’s an excerpt:

An anonymous Democrat echoed the liberal media boilerplate:

“The problem we had with the Russia stuff and FISA stuff from day one was that people are getting two sets of news depending on what you watch,” one Democratic hill staffer said. “Some Dems were willing to live with that if it was limited to Fox News. But at CBS you are giving it the imprimatur of neutrality and that of a serious news organization.

Tani admits “Herridge has been careful to never cross the line into overt advocacy,” and quotes CBS officials praising her work. But it’s not hard to imagine that Herridge is finding herself to be the new version of Sharyl Attkisson, where many stories are sidelined to the internet because they’re too upsetting for liberals to grant the “imprimatur of neutrality.” It’s already happening:

[End]

As I pointed out yesterday, Herridge is obviously headed down the same path as previous great CBS reporters Sharyl Atkisson and Lara Logan, both of whom were booted off the network for their own distressing habit of upsetting anonymous Democrat staffers and their Democrat toady reporters for daring to objectively report real news. Herridge’s days at CBS are obviously numbered.

He made the same prediction in 2016. How’d that work out for him?

Good piece at The Daily Wire detailing the fact that it took 3 full weeks for Michigan’s congressional flake Justin Amash to figure out that he would have no chance to win if he became the Libertarian Party’s presidential nominee this go-round. Man, I could have told him that in about 3 seconds.

Finally, President Trump fired yet another corrupt inspector general yesterday, and the Democrats and their media toadies are freaking out about it. Here’s an excerpt from a Washington Times report:

President Trump on Friday announced he is firing the State Department’s inspector general — the latest of several people tasked with conducting oversight on various government agencies to be pushed out by Mr. Trump in recent weeks.

In a letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Mr. Trump said he no longer had the “fullest confidence” in Inspector General Steve Linick, who has been in the position since 2013.

Amb. Stephen J. Akard, who was previously confirmed by the U.S. Senate as head of the State Department’s Office of Foreign Missions, is set to take Mr. Linick’s place.

Mr. Trump last month also removed former acting Defense Department Inspector General Glenn Fine from his post. Mr. Fine had also been tapped to lead a committee charged with overseeing trillions of dollars in federal coronavirus rescue spending.

[End]

Awesome.

That is all.

Ric Grenell Releases Obama Unmasker List – Joe Biden Included ***UPDATED***

UPDATE: Ok, let’s talk about why all of the stuff revealed by Catherine Herridge in the tweet copied below is important.

First, there is nothing illegal about the practice of “unmasking” in and of itself. It is standard procedure in Democrat and Republican administrations alike for officials to make these requests so that they can better understand briefings and other documents they are attempting to digest. So, it’s all probably legal, and every one of the 39 Obama officials named in today’s release had proper authorization to “unmask” General Flynn for these specific purposes and for their own use.

The scandal here is that many of the people on this list were engaging in unmasking not only General Flynn but a wide variety of U.S. citizens, not for their own internal, private use, but in order to be able to broadcast this information throughout the Obama Administration and cause it to be leaked, either by themselves or others, to willing accomplices within the corrupt news media.

Look at these documents copied below, and note the flurry of activity that took place on December 14 and 15. Fully 35 of the 39 Obama officials who appear on this list made an unmasking request on those dates. Why do you think that is the case?

Well, it’s most likely because that was right at the time when then-Director of National Intelligence James Clapper issued an order that dramatically broadened the number of agencies and levels of employees with whom this information could be shared by the requesters.

Remember that? Prior to that order, government officials were very restricted in sharing this information with others in the government. Obviously, that restriction was there in order to protect the U.S. citizens who were the subjects of the unmasking efforts.

But Clapper – almost certainly acting on direct orders from Obama himself – took care of that, and as a result enabled the creation of a mountain of leaks that we saw during the Trump transition.

That’s the biggest part of this scandal.

But there’s more. For one thing, consider the fact that that flurry of activity on the 14th and 15th took place two full weeks before Flynn’s infamous phone call with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak on December 29. Remember: It is that call that Comey/McCabe/Strzok, et all at the FBI have always claimed as the event that triggered their suspicions about Gen. Flynn. This list proves that is all just another lie, and that the Obama coup cabal was targeting Flynn much earlier.

Also, think about the nature of the names you see on this list. The person with the most requests is Samantha Power, who was the Ambassador to the United Nations. What in the hell was the UN Ambassador doing making such numerous requests specific to General Flynn?

And what in the world was going on at the U.S. Treasury Department? You had no fewer than 6 Treasury officials feeling the need to unmask the designated incoming National Security Advisor. Why?

What do you think motivated the President’s own Chief of Staff, Denis McDonough, to make an unmasking request on January 5? Could have been because that was the exact day on which Obama held that meeting with his national security team, and then afterwards took James Comey and Sally Yates aside to specifically talk about the operation to entrap Flynn? Could be. Seems likely.

Finally, what possible legitimate reason would the outgoing Vice President of the United States have to unmask General Flynn on January 12, 2017, just 8 days before he was to leave office. At the very least, shouldn’t Mr. Biden be asked that question by every corrupt journalist who interviews him from now until November 3? If Biden were a Republican, we all know that would certainly happen.

So, the fallout from this specific release of documents is not going to be that anyone is going to jail for doing this. The fallout is that it demonstrates once again the organized effort at the highest levels of the Obama Administration to hamper the Trump transition team, an effort that continued after Trump had assumed office.

The impact to Biden is that it clearly shows once again that he was personally involved in these efforts. There is little question that this revelation will only serve to amplify efforts by many Democrats to prevent him from becoming the nominee. This man is already operating in an atmosphere in which a new poll out this week shows that 30% of Democrat voters still do not expect him to ultimately be nominated at the party’s convention. That percentage will grow because of today’s revelation, especially when you factor in the fact that just yesterday, Biden denied any knowledge about any of this on national television.

One reader asked earlier if this might trigger Bernie Sanders to reactivate his own campaign. That’s a good question, one that most likely hinges on whether Sanders has already been bought off to get out of the race like he was in 2016. If nothing else, his price might suddenly go up.

Morning Joe Agrees to Serve up a Powder Puff Interview With Biden

The Evening Campaign Update

MSNBC and the Biden Campaign are coordinating approved questions and facial expressions as you read this. – News broke late Thursday that the circus clowns at MSNBC’s Morning Joe program will serve as the platform on which Creepy Uncle Quid Pro China Joe Biden will roll out his version of his ummmm…’interactions’ with Tara Reade when she was on his senate staff in 1993.

How Morning Joe got this gig over and above all the myriad CNN and MSNBC programs that were no doubt raising their hands and shouting “pick me! pick me!” at the Biden camp is anyone’s guess. Possibly it’s because Morning Joe is the lowest-rated daytime TV program on any cable news channel not named CNN. Possibly it’s because Biden has the hots for Mika or because he just loves Joe Scarborough’s pompadour hairdo and Church Lady good looks.

Whatever the reason, the presumptive Democrat nominee will be awakened and dressed by his handlers early Friday morning and shoved in front of his basement camera so that his abusive wife Jill can help guide him through the answers to the pre-approved questions that will no doubt be scrolling on a handy teleprompter. This should be god-awful TV, but it will be like watching a train wreck unfold in slow motion – you won’t be able to look away.

Can’t wait.

In other news on this rapid-fire Thursday…

– President Donald Trump told reporters at the White House today that he’d be glad to bring General Mike Flynn back into his administration. No doubt the corrupt reporters in the room all got the vapors on that one;

– The President also said he won’t need to pardon General Flynn because “he’s been exonerated.” Boom;

– Mr. Trump also said that he has seen intelligence that gives him a high degree of confidence that the coronavirus originated from the Wuhan Institute of Virology – though he would not go into detail when pressed for obvious reasons;

– The hospital ship USS Comfort sailed out of New York Harbor today. The ship had been docked at Pier 90 since March 30. The Navy says that during its time in NYC the hospital ship treated a grand total of 182 coronavirus patients, all of whom were discharged over the past week;

– Meanwhile, the hastily-constructed, 2900 bed field hospital in NYC’s Javits Center is in the process of being decommissioned and shut down after having been used to treat a grand total of 1094 patients;

– and finally, we had this from Catherine Herridge:

Only in an America saddled with an utterly corrupt Department of Justice and FBI could this Strzok guy still be walking around a free man. This must change, and soon.

That is all.
