The Horowitz FISA Investigation May Have Found its Scapegoat

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Details of the Horowitz FISA report are leaking, and it all smacks of a whitewash. – Not that that outcome wasn’t completely predictable, since I warned you to fully expect that in yesterday’s Campaign Update.

Last night, CNN ran with a story – based on leaks no doubt obtained from one of the many ex-FBI snakes now employed by the fakest news channel on earth – proclaiming that Horowitz’s report will make claims of criminal activity by a single FBI lawyer, whose identity is not revealed in the story. Might it be James Baker, the former FBI general counsel now working for CNN as a contributor? Might it be Lisa Page, the paramour and co-conspirator to super-duper FBI stud Peter Strzok? We didn’t know, and CNN wasn’t telling.

What CNN did say about the nature of the potential charges against this lawyer is this:

A former FBI lawyer is under criminal investigation after allegedly altering a document related to 2016 surveillance of a Trump campaign adviser, several people briefed on the matter told CNN.

A little later in the evening, the Deep State mouthpieces at the Washington Post came in with a story of their own, and it revealed more about this lawyer’s identity. According to the Post:

The person under scrutiny is a low-level FBI lawyer who has since been forced out of the agency, according to the officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss material that has not yet been made public.

Hilariously, after Wolf Blitzer carried a report on this CNN “breaking news,” the fake news channel’s own on-air fake talent studiously ignored it for the rest of the evening. Only in America’s dead profession of journalism would a news outlet work so hard to bury a major scoop that its own people were the first to report.

But the bottom line here is that Horowitz, true to his nature as a career creature of the DC Swamp, has apparently found the perfect scapegoat, a low-level lawyer who has already been forced out of his job and who can now become the sacrificial lamb, the offering to the public in a report that otherwise whitewashes the utter defrauding of the FISA process that we all know was led by Strzok, James Comey, Andrew McCabe and Rod Rosenstein, among others. We know a whitewash is very likely because the Post piece also contains this very disturbing passage:

That conduct did not alter Horowitz’s finding that the surveillance application of former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page had a proper legal and factual basis, the officials said.

Ugh.

The lone bit of potentially good news in all of this actually appears in the CNN report:

Horowitz turned over evidence on the allegedly altered document to John Durham, the federal prosecutor appointed early this year by Attorney General William Barr to conduct a broad investigation of intelligence gathered for the Russia probe by the CIA and other agencies, including the FBI. The altered document is also at least one focus of Durham’s criminal probe.

So, again, if you were expecting gang-buster, myriad criminal referrals to be contained in the report from career apparatchik Michael Horowitz, you would be well advised to cool your jets. While reports from CNN and the WaPo are highly suspect at best and far from definitive accounts of the totality of the Horowitz’s findings, they provide good initial foundation to believe the report will be a classic DC Swamp whitewash.

After all, if the report contained criminal referrals targeting the true major players in all of this, those major players would be working with their toadies at CNN, WaPo, the NYTimes and the networks to plant stories that smear Horowitz and contain more-preferred narratives.

If you want real justice to be levied at the coup cabal plotters, it will either come from John Durham and his investigation, or it will never come at all.

That is all.

Tick-Tock: Hannity and Graham Break Wind, er, News on the Horowitz FISA Report

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

The Tick-Tock News Hour finally gives us something other than gas. – All-hat and No-cattle Senator Lindsey Graham appeared on Sean Hannity’s Tick-Tock News Hour Wednesday evening. That’s nothing new. What is new is that the Senator from South Carolina had actually managed to round up some cattle for a change, informing Hannity’s loyal audience of something that they hadn’t already heard 600 times before on Tick-Tock News.

That item of actual new stuff is that the long-delayed report on abuse of the FISA process from plodding, obfuscating DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz and his staff of thousands of do-nothing bureaucrats will definitely, no question, you betcha be issued on December 9. Not December 9 of 2020, not of 2024, but…wait for it…THIS ACTUAL YEAR. I swear I’m not making this up. Here’s the clip:

For those Baby Boomers who still like to read stuff, here’s the transcript:

Mr. Tick-Tock – You’re gonna have, on December 11 [he actually said September 11, but I’m trying to be nice here], the Inspector General will be before your committee. I’m hoping we’ll get…

Sen. Graham – …December 11…

Mr. Tick-Tock – …a number of days, and not on a Friday, a dump…

Sen. Graham – …it’ll be December the 9th…

Mr. Tick-Tock – …derp…

Sen. Graham – …you’ll get the report.

Mr. Tick-Tock – [Shocked] December the 9th. That’s locked.

Sen. Graham – That’s locked.

[2 seconds of dead air as a shocked Hannity suddenly realizes he’s going to have to actually run a different show than he’s run the last 550 straight days come December 9.]

Mr. Tick-Tock – Ok. That’s a Monday. You’ll be in your chambers on Wednesday.

[End]

Ok, so, all of you who have been asking me for the last 10 months or so, “where’s the FISA report?” and “when’s the FISA report coming out?” – now you have it straight from the mouths of two of the most unreliable people on the face of the earth.

My only pieces of advice to you here are:

Don’t get your hopes up. Horowitz is a career DC Swamp creature. He is not in his job to actually find real, true wrongdoing that would create a major scandal within the department of government that pays his salary. As we have seen in the previous reports he has issued following his interminable investigations, his modus operandi is to do everything he can to create excuses to minimize and excuse wrongdoing by department employees.

While this report will likely contain criminal referrals, don’t expect them to be any sort of blockbusters involving people like James Comey.  Horowitz will bend over backwards to ascribe real criminal wrongdoing by these people to simple violations of departmental policy. Remember: Horowitz is a bureaucrat at heart, and it is never in the self-interest of any career bureaucrat to do real damage to the department in which he is employed. The permanent driving incentive of the career federal bureaucrat is always to preserve and grow the bureaucracy. This is the fundamental problem with allowing the DOJ to investigate itself, regardless of who the Attorney General happens to be.

Don’t be surprised if these dates end up being delayed again. Everything Graham says about any of this is highly suspect. The man has already almost succeeded in getting through his entire first year as chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee without calling a single hearing or issuing a single subpoena over any of this stuff. It seems odd that he’s suddenly now going to break that record of non-achievement with just three weeks remaining in the year and the Christmas holiday season coming up.

Don’t shoot me, I’m just the messenger. And hey, maybe this will be the one time Sean Hannity’s Tick-Tock News Hour and his favorite guest actually deliver something real.

That is all.

What is the Game with the Horowitz Report?

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley is not a happy man. – The former Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee is understandably irritated about the seemingly endless delays in the process of getting the report on FISA abuse from DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz released to the public. Grassley made his concerns known in a tweet issued Tuesday afternoon:

Indeed, what is the game with this long-delayed report from an investigation that started more than 20 months ago in early 2018? The report has been rumored in the fake news media to be complete and ready for release since at least April of this year, yet we still have seen neither hide nor hair of it. Grassley’s reference to “next week when they said it would” is actually a reference to reports from Sara Carter and others claiming that their “sources” were telling them the report would be issued on or around November 18.

This is about the 600th “sourced” issue date for the report that Carter and others have rolled out on Sean Hannity’s radio and/or TV programs since April. Hannity himself has repeatedly claimed that his own “sources” were telling him the report was just bound to be released at some point every month for the last six months. And yet, here we sit, still without this supposedly crucial report.

And it only gets worse: Late Tuesday evening, the Associated Press issued a report that clearly tells us we won’t see this report next week, or the week after that, or anytime before at least early December. Here’s the key passage:

The inspector general in recent days has invited witnesses and their lawyers who were interviewed for the report to review portions of a draft this week and next, a critical final step toward making the document public, according to multiple people familiar with the process who insisted on anonymity to discuss it.

As part of that process, the people will have opportunities to raise concerns or suggest potential edits, making it unclear precisely when in the coming weeks a final version could be ready for release. Inspector General Michael Horowitz told Congress in a letter last month that he did not expect a lengthy review period and that he intended to make as much of the report public as possible, with minimal redactions.

Oh. It is “unclear precisely when in the coming weeks a final version could be ready for release.” Well, knock me over with a feather.

This witness review process could take a few weeks, or it could take months. It could even result in the release of the report being delayed until after Election Day 2020, at which time it could be safely quashed from ever seeing the light of day should a Democrat win the presidency.

Why? Because each and every one of these witnesses has a high-powered lawyer representing them, and those lawyers will no doubt employ every tactic for delay they can come up with, given that they are no doubt all loyal players whose livelihoods depend on the preservation of the DC Swamp and its corruption.

And presto! Just as if it were coordinated in advance, the reliable deep state mouth organ Washington Post issued its own report just hours after the AP report in which it claims that, while the timelines for some witness reviews have already been established, the timelines for others are “still being negotiated”:

Several witnesses have been scheduled or are in talks to review sections of the report dealing with their testimony in the next two weeks, the people said on the condition of anonymity to discuss a sensitive matter.

Even better for the deep state, the witnesses can submit feedback, which could result in further delays and force additional “investigations”:

That could mean public release is imminent, though the witnesses will be allowed to submit feedback — which could spark more investigative work and slow down the process.

Oh. And guess what? Any additional investigative work might – just might – result in new revelations of wrongdoing, which would the result in the accused persons within the FBI and DOJ getting yet another lengthy bite at the apple to review the findings and provide their own “feedback,” which could in turn create the need for more investigative work and witness interviews and feedback and counterclaims and lawyer tactics and corrupt FBI demands for redactions and on and on and on and on ad nauseum.

Oh.

Here’s the lesson for Senator Grassley: You need to stop watching or listening to Sean Hannity and his gang of tick-tock monkeys. Sean Hannity has aired essentially the same hour of TV and three hours of radio five days a week for the past three years now. His incessant, repeated claims of “big revelations coming” that will be “devastating” and result in “multiple criminal referrals” and yada-yada-yada and blah-blah-blah have become the single most tiresome feature of our national news media.

So, to quote Sen. Grassley: “WHAT THE GAME IS?”

The game is delay. The game is being played by not only Horowitz himself, but by Christopher Wray, by Dana Boente, by other corrupt DOJ and FBI officials, by the felons who participated and still participate in the coup cabal, by the witnesses and their lawyers and their willing accomplices in the fake news media.

And here’s the biggest problem, Sen. Grassley: The game is also being played by your successor at the Judiciary Committee, your esteemed colleague Lindsey Graham. If you really are frustrated by all the delays, well, Sen. Graham has the power to convene a hearing and subpoena Horowitz, Wray, Boente and anyone else he wants to and ask them why they are playing this game.

Graham has in fact had that power for 10 months now and failed to convene a single hearing or issue a single subpoena related to this matter.

Tick-tock. Tick-tock. Tick-to…oh hell, nevermind.

That is all.

How Does the Never-ending Coup d’etat End?

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

So, how does it all end? – Oh, we know how the Democrats’ “impeachment” circus is going to end – with a rejection of articles of impeachment in the U.S. Senate. They’ll get support from several disloyal RINOs, snakes like Mitt Romney and maybe one or two others to whom personal ambition and preservation of their slice of the DC Swamp gravy train outweighs standing up for the rule of law and the sanctity of America’s electoral process. But in the end, the senate will reject the Schiff/Pelosi impeachment effort – that much is a given.

No, what I’m talking about here, and what every loyal American needs to be thinking about as the never-ending coup d’etat approaches its third anniversary, is how does that all end? What is the ultimate end game there? The coup cabal leaders have now had 33 months of the Trump Administration to catch or entrap or frame President of the United States in the commissions of a crime – any old real, actual crime would do – and have come up miserable failures in that effort.

And their record of abject failure is even worse than that when one considers that the efforts to entrap or frame Donald Trump actually started way back in November 2015, when it became obvious he would win the GOP nomination, which means we are really right at the fourth anniversary of this ongoing bit of treasonous action. After those four long years, the coup cabal has come up with…bupkis. Zero. Zip. Zilch. A big ol’ bag of nothing.

So, how does this all end? Does it just keep on going for five more years, through the end of President Trump’s second term in office? Because a second Trump term is almost an inevitability at this point unless the coup cabal can find a way to get rid of him without an election. This impeachment farce ain’t gonna get it done.

The Democrats and their corrupt media toadies can pontificate all they want about impeachment being “a purely political thing,” but the American people are obviously unmoved by that false argument. The Constitution’s discussion of impeachment contains the specific words “high crimes and misdemeanors” for a reason, and the clear evidence of the peoples’ belief in that reason is that today, after hearing this false “it’s just politics” argument 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for the last 2 months, the President’s public approval ratings stand exactly where they stood way back when all this began.

The evidence of just how miserably the coup cabal has failed in its efforts to move the nation’s opinion of the President was heard and seen loud and clear at Alabama’s Bryant Denny Stadium yesterday:

Yes, that’s real America, that vast middle 80% of the nation that lies between the regions occupied by the coastal elites. Real America is Trump Country, and those people will not peacefully tolerate the removal of this President from office by these illegitimate means.

So, if the people are unmoved by the farce, what happens next and how does this all end? Can the coup cabal really sustain this long-running fantasy play for nine long years? Are they really just planning to keep running through the same tiresome playbook over and over again until it somehow works? The word for that is insanity, and it is a very apt description of what they continue to put the nation through in their mad quest for power.

How does this all end? If the last 33 months have taught us nothing else, they have taught us that the federal administrative state is filled to the gills with disloyal Obama holdovers and career bureaucrats who are perfectly willing to subvert the Constitution and the electoral process in order to affect their own personal political agenda. The Alexander Vindmans and Eric Ciaramellas are not outliers at the National Security Council or the CIA – they’re closer to the norm, a norm that also exists within the bureaucracies of the State Department, the Department of the Interior, the EPA and most other bureaucracies of the federal government.

These people are like cancerous cells flowing through the vessels of the Trump Administration, doing everything they can each and every day to make it impossible for the President to govern as he was elected to do. This disloyalty, this active mendacity and seditious activity within the bureaucracy is not a “new” thing per se. President Reagan, and to a lesser extent, Bush 41 and Bush 43 had to deal with it, though at a far less intense level.

What’s different this time is scale of it, and its audacity. Before now, the Deep State had always lurked in the shadows, careful to hide its ambitions and activities. But now, we have the spectacle of it dressing itself up in fully military regalia – Vindman – in clear violation of the military code of conduct and having no one in the military chain of command utter a peep of objection or condemnation.

We have the lawyer for Ciaramella, the fake whistleblower who played the role of kicking off the whole impeachment farce, bragging about a coup and publicly recruiting other whistleblowers on his twitter feed. We have the leader of the impeachment farce, Adam Schiff, denying the GOP members of his committee the right to even ask questions of Ciaramella under the false argument that whistleblowers are guaranteed a right to remain anonymous. Completely false.

This is audacious. It’s right out in the open, and if you’re thinking the coup cabal will just fold up its collective tent and suddenly become loyal Americans again once their impeachment effort fails, you are living in an alternative reality. It should be obvious to everyone by now that that is just not going to happen.

So, what does the duly-elected President of the United States do once he is exonerated by the duly-elected U.S. Senate? To quote Ezekiel 25:17, he is “beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men,” to such an extent that it is now bordering on impacting not just the President’s security, but the security of this nation. Which of course is the goal of this cabal of evil, disloyal people.

How does this all end once the impeachment farce fails? How will the President deal with the skunks and snakes that Obama left embedded in the administrative state? He knows who many of them are by now, but federal employment laws make it almost impossible to get rid of them. He theoretically could issue an executive order declaring an emergency, suspending those laws and enabling his cabinet officials herd the snakes and skunks out of their ranks, but would they do it?

Would Christopher Wray take the opportunity to clean out his raging dumpster fire at the FBI? Would Gina Haspel use the chance to get rid of Ciaramella and his compatriots within her ranks at the CIA? And what about the Pentagon – the Vindman spectacle makes you wonder exactly where the loyalties at the Joint Chiefs of Staff lie at this point.

How does this all end? Or does it just keep going on and on and on until the Democrats and the corrupt news media and the deep state minions achieve their ultimate goal of taking the country into another Civil War?

Good question. I wish we knew the answer.

That is all.

Fake Whistleblower’s Lawyer Outs the Coup d’etat in a Tweet

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

You seriously could never in a million years make this stuff up. – The lawyer for the leaker/spy Eric Ciaramella, whom the media refer to as a “whistleblower” so they can pretend to not know his name, was himself in the news last night when some enterprising soul published several tweets from his Twitter account from 2017.

The lawyer’s name is Mark Zaid, a leftist activist who has been literally shopping around for fake “whistleblowers” since the start of the Trump Administration. To his credit, unlike most leftist activists who skulk around in the dark trying to disguise their seditious efforts to undermine the country, Zaid has worn his beliefs on his sleeve via his Twitter account, littering his messages with hashtags like #rebellion, #impeachment, #resistance and even, yes, #coup, as in this message below:

Note that Zaid relates the beginning of the #coup to the elevation of long-time Deep State skunk Dana Boente to the post of Acting Attorney General after President Trump fired fellow Deep State skunk Sally Yates. Hey, guess where Boente serves today?  Why, he is the chief legal counsel at Christopher Wray’s dumpster fire of corruption and incompetence, aka, the FBI.

Now you know one big reason why so much Deep State skunkery continues to emanate from that dumpster fire agency.

Here’s another tweet lawyer Zaid issued in July of 2017:

We will get rid of him.” The “we” no doubt referring to the coup cabal embedded within the FBI and DOJ, and the then-young Mueller Witch Hunt that was then in the process of becoming staffed with leftist activist thugs just like Zaid.

There are more, including one in which Zaid predicts that CNN will play a key role in the ultimate removal of Trump from office. Wonder how he knew that?

Do any of you still think that we are not in the midst an ongoing, three-year-long coup d’etat?

This is deadly serious stuff, folks, a real, true attempt by a major political party and the national news media to overturn a national election. This isn’t happening in Venezuela or Chile or Nicaragua or some other banana republic: This is happening in the United States of America.

If the target of the coup, President Donald Trump (I still never tire of typing those three glorious words that drive lefties, progressives, liberals, socialists, Marxists and all the other things we call “Democrats” crazy) is worried out it, though, he isn’t showing it. In fact, during his rally last night in Monroe, Louisiana, he hilariously read Zaid’s coup tweets to the audience:

“It’s all a hoax. It’s a scam. And you know who helps them? These people right back here – the media.”

Exactly.

That is all.

Sidney Powell Lambasts the FBI For Falsifying Flynn 302 Forms

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

If Sidney Powell were representing a Democrat, Netflix would already be developing a mini-series based on her professional life. – The attorney for retired General Mike Flynn appeared on Fox News Tuesday night after government lawyers in the case made a filing with the court so audacious that it stretches the bounds of belief to the breaking point.

In that filing, government lawyers informed the totally badass Ms. Powell and Judge Emmet Sullivan that, for the past 18 solid months, they have “misidentified the authorship of handwritten notes from the January 24, 2017” ambush interview conducted with Gen. Flynn by FBI agents Peter Strzok and Joe Pientka (whose identity the corrupt news media continues to pretend not to know). Per the filing, “Specifically, we were informed that the notes we had identified as Peter Strzok’s, were actually the other agent’s [Pientka’s] notes, and what we had identified as the other agent’s notes were actually Strzok’s notes.”

Here is a photo of the complete letter:

Once again, the utterly corrupt coup cabal members who remain embeded within the FBI and the Department of Justice rely on the ignorance and general stupidity of the American public, and the willingness of our corrupt news media to refuse to report the truth.

Kudos are due, then, to Shannon Bream and Fox News for inviting badass Flynn defense attorney Sidney Powell to come on live late Tuesday evening to respond to this latest blatantly obvious abuse of the public trust by the government’s corrupt lawyers.

First, the clip of the interview, followed by a transcript dutifully provided to you by Today’s Campaign Update:

Here’s the transcript, for those of you who still like to actually read stuff:

Bream: An explosive new court filing on behalf of the President’s former national security advisor is demanding that the FBI search its own internal database for documents relating to Flynn’s fateful January 2017 interview at the White House. Flynn’s legal team is claiming the FBI substantially manipulated interview notes. The FBI says the changes were “largely grammatical and stylistic.” Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to investigators under Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe, but his sentencing is still up in the air after being delayed for months.

And breaking news late tonight: The government has just admitted it made an error with regard to key evidence in the case, and it involves Peter Strzok. So let’s go to the source: Michael Flynn’s attorney, Sidney Powell joins us live.

Let me ask you about this letter that comes out tonight; the government says, reaches out to you, and you’ve had questions about the hand-written notes that dealt with Flynn’s interview in January 2017. Tonight, the government admitting this: “We were informed that the notes that were identified as Peter Strzok’s were actually the other agent’s notes…and what we had identified as the other agent’s notes were in fact Strzok’s notes…We understand that this has caused some confusion, and we regret our error.”

Why is this so significant, Sidney?

Powell: [laughing] Well, it’s a rather crucial point of their case – the entire case against Mr. Flynn relies on what the agents say that he said in the interview that they didn’t warn him about or take any verbatim recording of or anything like that. So, their entire case depends on what these two agents said.

And now, we are realizing, 18 months later, they’re taking a look at their file and realizing, oh, by the way, we got the names of the two agents crossed on the notes? The notes that we told you were Mr. Strzok’s are not – they’re they other agent’s, and vice versa?

It’s appalling. What else have they gotten wrong? We can’t trust anything they say. This is all the more reason that we have to ask Judge Sullivan to produce every single document out of the FBI file, make them search their Sentinel system, produce the original 302, which is still missing. They can’t explain that, and the only way it could be ‘missing’ is if it is affirmatively destroyed. And there would be evidence of that.

So they have a lot of explaining to do.

Bream: Just a reminder for the audience: The 302s are those eventual reports [by the agents] about the interview that they had with someone, like Gen. Flynn, in the days after they had talked with him.

The Hill, in an opinion piece by James Davidson, says this: “Despite the recent court filing by former national security advisor and retired Gen. Michael Flynn about altered FBI interview summaries, there is unlikely to be any revelation that will overcome his admission under oath that he did, in fact, lie.”

Is it your hope that you will uncover something that is such a misrepresentation of the government’s case, or exculpatory evidence that change that? I mean, he did admit to these things and make a plea deal.

Powell: Well, there’s an explanation of that in our filings. Whoever wrote that story obviously hasn’t read both of the briefs that are so important. We know that agent Strzok conducted the interview as a pretext. We found a text message that the government didn’t produce that said that. And we [interrupted by Bream] know that Lisa Page had a hand…

Bream: Let me put that up to show what you’re talking about. This is February 10, 2017. Strzok says to Page: “I made your edits and sent them to Joe. I also emailed you an updated 302. I’m not asking you to edit it this weekend, I just wanted to send it to you.”

That’s allegedly Peter Strzok to Page. You believe that is a discussion about the Flynn 302.

Powell: Yes, that’s a discussion about the Flynn 302, included as exhibits 9 and 10 of our filing a week or two ago, the material changes that were made to the 302 that night. So, we have tied them directly to that email exchange.

Bream: To the FBI’s point: They say that the changes were “grammatical” or they were “stylistic.” [Powell laughs at this absurd contention] They say that allegations about content changes, or things that would have made a substantive difference, that’s just not accurate.

Powell: Well, people can look at the exhibits for themselves – actually, it may be exhibits 11 and 12. But they added a definitive statement that General Flynn did not say something that he had said, and another statement that he had elicited some responses to questions about Ambassador Kislyak, what he had said in response, and there’s nothing in the notes that supports that whatsoever.

It’s made up out of whole cloth.

I would encourage everyone to look at the exhibits for themselves, and the comparison of the February 10th 302 and the Feb. 11th 302. It shows dramatic changes made – no one could possibly call them ‘grammatical’ and ‘stylistic’ when you’ve added whole sentences out of thin air.

Bream: Do you have hard evidence at this point as to who made the changes?

Powell: No, we do not know. Without the meta-data and the audit trail, we cannot say who made the changes, other than the text message of Mr. Strzok reflects that he went back to the office that night to make Lisa Page’s changes and whatever else he wanted to change on his own.

Bream: Are you hopeful that there will actually be something that would overturn this plea deal? Do you think you have that much? Or are you hopeful that what you’ll uncover will be a missing piece?

Powell: There is already far more than enough to overturn the plea deal. I don’t want to go into the details of that now, but it is certainly apparent in our motion and our brief of what those are.

But I think we’re going to find even more that establishes the wrongful conduct of the government. We want the American people to see the whole truth about what happened here in the pretextual investigation of Gen. Flynn, and then the made up comments in the 302s.

[Interview Ends]

Judge Emmet Sullivan, a 1984 appointee by Ronald Reagan, has received a lot of praise over the years for his no-nonsense approach in court. But he has allowed these corrupt government lawyers to string this Flynn entrapment out for two solid years now and to get away with all manner of nonsense in this case.

As Powell says in this interview, her recent filings have provided overwhelming proof of government corruption in this case and of the outright falsification of the FBI 302 filings related to it. It is long past time for this Reagan appointee to quit behaving like an Obama or Clinton judge and shut this atrocity to American justice down.

That is all.

What Everyone Should Know About Alexander Vindman

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Here are some things to understand about Alexander Vindman, the mid-level NSC flunky who the Democrats and their media toadies are trying to portray as the second coming of Audie Murphy in the wake of yesterday’s testimony before Adam Schiff’s Soviet-style inquisition:

– Mr. Vindman served his country admirably, rising to the rank of Lt. Colonel and earning a Purple Heart while serving in the Iraq War.

– He was born in Ukraine and speaks the language fluently. He and his twin brother emigrated to the United States in 1979, when they were 3 years old.

– He is most likely the so-called second “whistleblower,” who was much-ballyhooed by the media for about 48 hours several weeks ago before his statement was disappeared from the news like a favorable Trump poll. In that role, he has most likely been coordinating with Schiff and his hired Lawfare staff for many weeks now, waiting patiently for the cue to play his role in this ongoing DC Swamp Kabuki Theater production.

– He never wears his uniform to work. His wearing of the uniform on Tuesday was part of Schiff’s careful choreography of this whole drama, an attempt to lend credibility to an obviously politically-motivated hack. It’s the kind of stuff we regularly see in third-world military coup d’etat efforts.

– While serving at the NSC, he had numerous contacts with foreign agents, including the very sketchy attorney Marcus Cohen, who poured hundreds of thousands of dollars into the campaign of now-Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky, in the hopes of being appointed to a high-level position within his administration.

– While Vindman’s military service is honorable, in testifying on Tuesday he was disobeying a direct order from his Commander-in-Chief. That is not honorable.

– During his testimony, Adam Schiff directed Vindman to refuse to answer questions from Republican members of the committee in order to protect Vindman from incriminating himself. Again, exactly the sort of stuff we regularly see taking place in banana republic coup d’etat efforts.

– Also during his testimony, Vindman apparently admitted to leaking the contents of the President’s classified call to several people, almost certainly a crime.

– The questions Schiff was most concerned about had to do with the identities of the people to whom Vindman had leaked the contents of the call. Again, most likely a felony under U.S. law.

– Despite the clear admission in his published opening statement that the published transcript of the call is accurate, Vindman also testified that he had actually made efforts to force changes to be made to the transcript in order to better fit his and Schiff’s narrative.

What we see with Vindman and Schiff’s other politically-motivated witnesses is the reason why Schiff and Pelosi have insisted in running this Soviet-style process behind closed doors, and why they can never allow the Republicans to have full rights to issue subpoenas and publicly question witnesses in this process. It is why the “resolution” the Democrats are ostensibly planning to vote on tomorrow – appropriately on Halloween – carefully preserves Schiff’s ability to shut down questioning and determine who can testify.

This is not an impeachment, folks – even Pelosi and Schiff admit that. This is a coup d’etat. It is simply a continuation of the efforts to bring down Trump that started way back in the Winter of 2015 at the Obama DOJ and FBI, and most likely the Obama White House itself. This latest episode basically amounts to the 10th or 12th act in the longest theatrical production in the history of the Deep State, with the fake news media faithfully playing the role of the Amen Chorus.

Alexander Vindman was just this week’s special guest star, all dressed up in his costume and playing his part to the max. Who knows what swamp skunk or snake Schiff and Pelosi will put before the nation next week.

One thing we know for certain: The Democrats at this point are in this all far too deep to ever pull back without committing voluntary political suicide. They have no choice now but to continue playing it all out until the bitter end. If you think they would hesitate for a moment before resorting to outright insurrection and widespread violence to maintain their power, you haven’t been paying close enough attention to what they’ve already been doing.

Be careful out there.

That is all.

Tucker Carlson and Rand Paul Lambast Lindsey Graham – But What About Richard Burr?

Today’s Campaign Update, PART II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Why should the Chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee get a pass? – No one is more frustrated with the empty promises of Lindsey Graham than I am. The Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, who must stand for re-election to his South Carolina Senate seat in 2020, has spent this entire year rushing before the nearest TV camera to make empty promise after empty promise about his plans to force people to testify before his committee.

He’s done this so many times, he has become the Senate’s version of the boy who cried wolf. It’s to the point now where it is near-impossible to take the guy seriously anymore. On his nightly Fox News program last night, Tucker Carlson aired an entire segment on the issue, which included an interview with Senator Rand Paul:

So, yes, Sen. Graham is failing in his duty as chairman. I wrote early this year that, due to his rumored lifestyle, Graham may be one of the most easily-compromised members of the Senate, and it certainly appears as if he has been compromised, and is afraid to exercise the powers of his chairmanship. This is sad and detestable, but it really should come as no surprise to anyone.

Graham richly deserves every bit of criticism he gets from Carlson, Sen. Paul and anyone else who weighs in on this subject – no argument there. His committee has jurisdiction over everything that took place within the Department of Justice and the FBI during 2016 through 2018, and it is now crystal clear Graham has no intention of making any effort whatsoever to hold anyone accountable.

His committee also has the power to subpoena each and every witness being interrogated in the basement of the Capitol Building by Adam Schiff in the fake impeachment charade, but it is obvious now that Graham, despite his threats, has no intention of doing that, either. He deserves to be primaried by a real conservative Republican next year, and to be defeated.

But there is another very powerful Chairman of a very powerful Senate committee – the Intelligence Committee – who also has jurisdiction over every action the coup cabal took during the past three years, and who also has done literally nothing to try to hold anyone accountable.

That Chairman is RINO Richard Burr of North Carolina, and he seems to just get a pass from Carlson and Paul and everyone else for his studious inaction. If anything, given what we now know today about the Comey/Brennan operation Crossfire Hurricane, which involved multiple efforts to entrap members of the Trump campaign by foreign CIA operatives on foreign soil, Burr’s committee should have and even more compelling reason to hold hearings and subpoena witnesses to try to ferret out the truth and hold officials accountable.

But…crickets. Not just from Burr and his committee, but from Tucker Carlson, Rand Paul and everyone else.

Has Sen. Burr been compromised by the deep state, too? Or does he just not give a damn? Either way, the public deserves to know what in the hell is going on here?

That is all.

Horowitz Report Delayed Again? What a Shock. Not.

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

In case you missed it, the report from DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s FISA abuse investigation is being delayed. Yet again. For the, what, 100th time?

News of the latest delay came from Maria Bartiromo, host on Fox News’s “Mornings With Maria,” who had previously reported on her program last week that the report would be released this Friday:

“Classifications being made.” Well, we all know what that means in the lingo of the apparently hopelessly-corrupt Department of Justice these days, right? Whenever we do see this report, it will be filled with entire passages completely black out, and those will in all likelihood be the most crucial passages that would implicate the actual bad actors in the 2016-17 election fixing/coup effort.

So, every time you get to thinking that maybe, just maybe, Attorney General William Barr and U.S. Attorney John Durham might actually be making some progress and doing something real in their own investigation into the origins of the election fixing/coup d’etat plot, you get a countervailing event that shows you nothing much has changed at the Department of [No] Justice. Let’s all remember that this past May, President Donald Trump gave Mr. Barr full discretion on the determination of what information related to these unending efforts to change the results of the 2016 elections should and should not be classified. Thus, if we are now having another two-week delay in the issuance of the Horowitz Report, it is completely at Barr’s discretion.

Speaking on Sean Hannity’s show Monday night, former Utah Congressman Jason Chaffetz said that the interminable delays are the result of “intra-agency debate, and really a food fight” over classification issues, further saying that he’s being told that up to 10-20% of the full report – which Bartiromo claims is massive – will end up being blacked out. Chaffetz reminded Hannity that just 7 WORDS had been black out in Horowitz’s previous report.

Oh. So, nothing at DOJ has really changed since 2016, right?

But it gets even worse, according to Chaffetz. Fast forward to 3:35 of the clip below and listen to what he says about worthless FBI Apparatchik Christopher Wray:

For those of you who still like to read stuff, here’s a partial transcript of the key 15 seconds:

Hannity: Who is asking for the redactions? Is that Director Wray?

Chaffetz: I have not seen any evidence that Director Wray has been cooperative, but I think you’re also talking about other agencies, perhaps the CIA, the NSA, there are others. I think Mr. Clapper, Mr. Brennan are fighting behind the scenes as best they can, in front of the camera they’re fighting as best they can.

This is disgusting. It’s an ongoing national disgrace. And it’s apparently never going to end.

Another very interesting piece of that clip comes just a few seconds into the video, when Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz acknowledges that he was kicked out of a House Intelligence Committee witness deposition by Chairman Adam Schiff yesterday. Kicked out.

Imagine – just try to imagine – the uproar we would be seeing in our fake news media this morning had Republican Chairman Devin Nunes kicked Schiff out of a formal committee meeting during 2017-18. You would think the world was coming to an end.

This is real, true Nazi stuff, folks. The majority party is now so all-consumed with power that is denying the minority party members any and all rights to participate in this fake impeachment process.

And it’s all being enabled by your fake news media. Why?  Because they’re complicit, too. Never forget that part.

Have a great day, if you can.

That is all.
