Saturday News Roundup: Trump, Graham, WHO, Flynn 302, and Alien Hybrids

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II

Some Trump supporters are up in arms today about the news that President Trump is going to “restore” U.S. funding for the corrupt and ineffective WHO. But they are missing the part where Trump says the U.S. will only match funding provided by China. Given that China’s contribution to the WHO is about 10% of what the U.S. contributed last year, this means that the President just committed to a 90% reduction in U.S. funding. Pay attention to the details, folks.

Speaking of the WHO… – Bad Lindsey Graham keeps rearing his ugly head. On Friday he told reporters that he would “double funding” for the WHO if Bill Gates was in charge of it. Gates, of course, is a completely committed globalist who has spent the last 15 years pushing for a global government. This is the kind of human ghoul who Lindsey really admires.

Original Flynn 302? What original Flynn 302? – The folks at The Conservative Treehouse have another great piece detailing new information showing that the original FBI 302 report from the entrapment interview of General Mike Flynn is missing, and that Sally Yates and James Comey both played a role in making it disappear. Go read it – you’ll be smarter for doing so.

Nick Searcy at RedState.com has an outstanding piece up today detailing how the global political left has finally achieved its goal of ruining the entire world. The piece includes this outstanding passage about the utter futility of widespread testing:

They will never let the old America come back if they can help it. They want it dead and gone, and always have. And in the Chinese Virus, or COVID19 or the Moo Shu Achoo or Lung Pao Sicken or whatever “racist” name you want to give it, they have stumbled upon the perfect weapon — because it can never be solved.

You may have it and not have any symptoms — but you may spread this thing with no symptoms to someone else who also may not have symptoms, so you have to stay home. But if someone else gets it and has symptoms, then you are a murderer, so you have to stay home. In order for you to be sure you don’t have it, YOU HAVE TO BE TESTED — but then, even if you test negative for the virus, YOU MIGHT GET IT 30 SECONDS AFTER THE TEST, so you have to stay home. And we can’t ever go back to normal until every single human being in America is tested — but even then, we can’t be sure, so you have to stay home.

The folks at The Right Scoop have a great write-up about the growing, coordinated effort by the Biden Campaign and the corrupt news media to smear CBS News Reporter Catherine Herridge. Her crime? Engaging in truthful and accurate reporting at one of the left’s long-time pet corrupt news outlets. It’s the same crime that got great reporters Sharyl Atkisson and Lara Logan tossed out of CBS. The left hates honest reporters, especially if they are women, and will fight like hell to rid them from our midst.

But this is the kind of woman the left really loves. – This woman looks decidedly un-healthy, yet she is the person who is giving COVID-19 advice to thug Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti. Is she even a human being? If there really was such a thing as alien hybrids, wouldn’t you expect them to look just like this?

Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf’s nursing home scandal continues to grow, as does Andrew Cuomo’s. The horrific judgment and decisions by these men directly caused thousands of senior citizen deaths in their respective states. Pennsylvanians are out demonstrating their displeasure with Wolfe this morning.

Incidentally, the alien hybrid invasion appears to have made its way to the Pennsylvania health office, where Rachel Levine advises Wolf on COVID-19 policy (hat tip to contributor Phineas Gage for this reference):

Goodness.

The U.S. is dramatically over-counting Wuhan Virus deaths. John Lott, Jr. details how and why in today’s piece at Townhall.com.

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.

Reminder: Obama Knew Everything

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

Don’t kid yourselves otherwise, folks: Obama knew everything that was happening in his administration. If you think Brennan and Comey and Strzok and McCabe and Priestap and Page and Baker and Rice and Lynch and all the other participants in the FBI/DOJ Coup Cabal just took it upon themselves to a) cover up the Hillary Clinton email scandal, b) attempt to rig the 2016 general election, c) mount an illegal spying effort on members of the Trump campaign, d) continue that illegal spying effort on the Trump transition team, e) defraud the FISA court in the process, f) entrap and frame General Mike Flynn, g) attempt to entrap and frame President Donald Trump himself, and g) invent a false rationale for the appointment of a special counsel whose job was really to mount a coup d’etat on U.S. soil, and hid all of that from Barack Hussein Obama His Own Self, then you are terribly naive and most likely intentionally uninformed.

The key to really understanding Obama’s first-hand knowledge of and almost certain involvement in the planning of all of these things is to understand the real nature of the meeting of January 5, 2017. Amid the previously-withheld documents released over the past ten days, we discover this about that meeting:

“Yates first learned of the December 2016 calls between [LTG Michael] Flynn and [Russian Ambassador to the United States, Sergey] Kislyak on January 5, 2017, while in the Oval Office. Yates, along with then FBI-Director James Comey, then-CIA Director John Brennan, and then-Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, were at the White House to brief members of the Obama Administration on the classified Intelligence Community Assessment on Russian Activities in Recent U.S Elections. President Obama was joined by his National Security Advisor, Susan Rice, and others from the National Security Council,” the document states.

“After the briefing, Obama dismissed the group but asked Yates and Comey to stay behind. Obama started by saying he had ‘learned of the information about Flynn’ and his conversation with Kislyak about sanctions. Obama specified he did not want any additional information on the matter, but was seeking information on whether the White House should be treating Flynn any differently, given the information. At that point, Yates had no idea what the President was talking about, but figured it out based on the conversation. Yates recalled Comey mentioning the Logan Act, but can’t recall if he specified there was an ‘investigation,'” it continues.

Note how Yates, one of the most reprehensible of all Obama sycophants, is shocked to learn that the POTUS himself somehow knows about the FBI’s efforts to dig up dirt on General Flynn. And remember that this is just a day after Peter Strzok had intervened to reverse the decision that Priestap and McCabe had already made to shut that effort down, which we now know would have been the proper decision. But here we are on January 5, and the thing is still alive and Obama’s discussing the details directly with Comey. That is stunning in and of itself.

But even more important here is to remember what is so key about the meeting of the full group that took place before Yates’s revelation. Let’s remember that this is the very meeting about which Susan Rice wrote her infamous “memo to self” in which she attempted to make the meeting and Obama’s conduct in it seem to be completely innocuous and “by the book.” Chuck Ross, then with the Daily Caller, remembered that incident in 2018:

Rice sent the email at 12:15 p.m. on Jan. 20, 2017, her final day in office. In the message, she memorialized a Jan. 5 Oval Office meeting she attended with President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, FBI Director James Comey and Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates.

The topic was the ongoing investigation into possible Trump campaign collusion. According to press reports, Comey briefed Obama that day on the unverified Steele dossier.

Grassley and Graham laid out their concerns with the email in a letter sent to Rice last week.

“It strikes us as odd that, among your activities in the final moments on the final day of the Obama administration, you would feel the need to send yourself such an unusual email purporting to document a conversation involving President Obama and his interactions with the FBI regarding the Trump/Russia investigation,” they wrote.

In her email, Rice wrote to herself:

On January 5, following a briefing by [Intelligence Community] leadership on Russian hacking during the 2016 Presidential election, President Obama had a brief follow-on conversation with FBI Director Jim Comey and Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates in the Oval Office. Vice President Biden and I were also present.

She said that Obama began the conversation “by stressing his continued commitment to ensuring that every aspect of this issue is handled by the Intelligence and law enforcement communities ‘by the book.’”

“The President stressed that he is not asking about, initiating or instructing anything from a law enforcement perspective. He reiterated that our law enforcement team needs to proceed as it normally would by the book,” she continued.

Rice also wrote that there was a discussion over whether classified information regarding Russia should be withheld from the incoming Trump administration.

“From a national security perspective, however, President Obama said he wants to be sure that, as we engage with the incoming team, we are mindful to ascertain if there is any reason that we cannot share information fully as it relates to Russia,” she wrote.

Grassley and Graham noted that the next portion of the email contained classified information and remains redacted. In the next section, Rice wrote: “The President asked Comey to inform him if anything changes in the next few weeks that should affect how we share classified information with the incoming team. Comey said he would.”

Grassley and Graham, who serve on the Senate Judiciary Committee, say they question whether the Obama team conducted the Trump investigation “by the book.”

[End]

This was a blatantly transparent, last-minute attempt by Rice to try to sanitize this meeting for the public record. There was literally no other reason for her to be engaging in this particular activity on her final day in office.

But immediately following this meeting, the FBI redoubled its efforts to entrap Flynn. Obama also took the action of drastically loosening rules around the sharing of classified information within various departments of the administration, including raw intelligence that was use by his senior people to illegally unmask hundreds of American citizens. This resulted in a flood of leaks to corrupt media outlets intended to damage the incoming Trump Administration.

The great Mollie Hemingway had a really good piece on Friday detailing other despicable actions that flowed out of this January 5 meeting led by Obama His Own Self:

A clearer picture is emerging of the drastic steps that were taken to accomplish Obama’s goal in the following weeks and months. Shortly thereafter, high-level operatives began intensely leaking selective information supporting a supposed Russia-Trump conspiracy theory, the incoming National Security Advisor was ambushed, and the incoming Attorney General was forced to recuse himself from oversight of investigations of President Trump. At each major point in the operation, explosive media leaks were a key strategy in the operation to take down Trump.

Not only was information on Russia not fully shared with the incoming Trump team, as Obama directs, the leaks and ambushes made the transition chaotic, scared quality individuals away from working in the administration, made effective governance almost impossible, and materially damaged national security. When Comey was finally fired on May 9, in part for his duplicitousness regarding his handling of the Russia collusion theory, he orchestrated the launch of a Special Counsel probe that continued his efforts for another two years. That probe ended with Mueller finding no evidence of any American colluding with Russia to steal the 2016 election, much less Trump or anyone connected to him.

An analysis of the timeline from early 2017 shows a clear pattern of behavior from the federal officials running the collusion operation against the Trump campaign. It also shows how essential media leaks were to their strategy to sideline key law enforcement and intelligence officials and cripple the ability of the incoming Trump administration to run the country.

[…]

January 5: Yates, Comey, CIA Director John Brennan, and Director of National Intelligence James Clapper briefed Obama on Russia-related matters in the Oval Office. Biden and Rice also attended. After the Obama briefing, the intelligence chiefs who would be leaving at the end of the term were dismissed and Yates and Comey, who would continue in the Trump administration, were asked to stay. Not only did Obama give his guidance about how to perpetuate the Russia collusion theory investigations, he also talked about Flynn’s conversations with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak, according to both Comey and Yates. Interestingly, Clapper, Comey, and Yates all said that they did not brief Obama about these phone calls. Clapper testified he did not brief Obama on the calls, Yates learned about the calls from Obama himself during that meeting, and Comey also testified he didn’t brief Obama about the calls, even though the intelligence was an FBI product. Rice, who publicly lied but later admitted under oath to her widespread use of unmasked intelligence at the end of the Obama administration, likely briefed Obama on the calls and would have had access to the intelligence. Comey mentions the Logan Act at this meeting.

January 6: An ostensibly similar briefing about Russian interference efforts during the 2016 campaign was given to President-elect Trump. After that briefing, Comey privately briefed Trump on the most salacious and absurd “pee tape” allegation in the Christopher Steele dossier, a document the FBI had already used to obtain a warrant to spy on Trump campaign affiliate Carter Page. Comey told Trump he was telling him because CNN was looking for any reason it could find to publish a story about Russia having compromising information on him, and he wanted to warn Trump about it. He did not mention the dossier was completely unverified or that it was the product of a secretly funded operation by the Clinton campaign and Democratic National Committee.

January 10: In an amazing coincidence, CNN found the excuse to publish the Russia claims after a high-level Obama intelligence operative leaked that Comey had briefed Trump about the dossier. This selective leak, which was credulously accepted by CNN reporters Evan Perez, Jim Sciutto, Jake Tapper and Carl Bernstein, may have been the most important step in the operation to harm the incoming Trump administration. The leak of the briefing of Trump was used to legitimize a ridiculous dossier full of allegations the FBI knew to be false that multiple news organizations had previously refused to report on for lack of substantiation, and created a cloud of suspicion over Trump’s campaign and administration by insinuating he was being blackmailed by Russia.

January 12: The next part of the strategy was the explosive leak to David Ignatius of the Washington Post to legitimize the use against Flynn of the Logan Act, a likely unconstitutional 1799 law prohibiting private individuals, not public incoming national security advisors, from discussing foreign policy with foreign governments. Ignatius accepted the leak from the Obama official. He wrote that Flynn had called Kislyak. “What did Flynn say, and did it undercut the U.S. sanctions? The Logan Act (though never enforced) bars U.S. citizens from correspondence intending to influence a foreign government about ‘disputes’ with the United States. Was its spirit violated?” Flynn’s routine and appropriate phone call became fodder for a developing grand conspiracy theory of Russia collusion. In discussions with investigators, both DOJ’s Mary McCord and Comey conspicuously cite this Ignatius column as somehow meaningful in the approach they would take with Flynn. “Nothing, to my mind, happens until the 13th of January, when David Ignatius publishes a column that contains a reference to communication Michael Flynn had with the Russians. That was on the 13th of January,” Comey said of the column that ran online on January 12. In fact, quite a bit had happened at the FBI prior to that leak, with much conversation about how to utilize the Logan Act against Flynn. And the leak-fueled Ignatius column would later be used by FBI officials to justify an illegal ambush interview of Flynn in the White House.

January 23: Another important criminal leak was given to Ellen Nakashima and Greg Miller of the Washington Post, also based on criminal leaks. Their article, headlined “FBI reviewed Flynn’s calls with Russian ambassador but found nothing illicit,” was intended to make Flynn feel safe and put him at ease about the FBI stance on those calls the day before they planned to ambush him in an interview. The article was used to publicize false information when it said, “Although Flynn’s contacts with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak were listened to, Flynn himself is not the active target of an investigation, U.S. officials said.” In fact, emails prior to this date confirm Flynn was their prime target. This article was later cited by McCabe as the reason why they were justified in concealing from Flynn the real purpose of their interview. Flynn later asked McCabe if he knew how all the information about his phone calls had been made public and whether it had been leaked. Any potential response from McCabe to Flynn has been redacted from his own notes about the conversation.

[End]

Mollie details much, much more in her piece, which everyone should go read in full. All of these despicable, anti-American actions flowed directly out of that January 5 meeting in the White House.

One big, glaring aspect about that meeting, in addition to directly implicating Obama in all of this, is the fact that Quid Pro Creepy Uncle China Joe Biden was also in attendance that day. That’s right: The presumptive presidential nominee of the Democrat Party also knew about all of this, although his ability to retain that knowledge remains an open question.

I’ve said this for three years now, but it bears repeating again: This is the biggest scandal in American history. We had a sitting President of the United States actively involved in an effort to fix a national election and then to bring down his successor. The truth of this is as plain as the nose on your face, and so horrible that it is sickening to contemplate.

What this means is that everything President Trump has told you about this scandal has been true: There was no Russia collusion in his campaign; Trump Tower was being illegally spied upon by the Obama FBI and other intelligence agencies; Mike Flynn was framed; Roger Stone and Paul Manafort have been unfairly brutalized in Soviet-style show trials led by Obama appointed judges; There was no legal basis for the appointment of a Special Counsel; Jim Comey did indeed attempt to entrap and frame Trump himself; on and on it goes.

And yesterday, when you heard President Trump tell the hosts of Fox and Friends that Obama himself knew about it all and participated in the planning, that was true, too. It all goes back to that meeting of January 5, 2017. That is the fulcrum around which all the myriad aspects of this still-unfolding act of outright treason against America revolves.

That is all.

Coup Cabal Communications: The Problem Lies in What we Haven’t Seen

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II

Many readers will be familiar with the Twitter account called “Undercover Huber.” No idea who is behind the account, but it has been quoted and re-tweeted by all manner of public officials and media personalities like Andrew McCarthy over the past few years. It has been an excellent source of fact-based research and commentary on the Deep State’s continuing efforts to hamper President Donald Trump and remove him from office.

Undercover Huber posted an excellent thread early Sunday morning exposing the DOJ/FBI cabal not for what we have seen in the reams of their communications that have been made public, but for what we have not seen in any of those communications. It’s great food for thought, and I wanted to be sure readers here got to see it. It is reprinted below in full.

Here is the text of the remaining tweets in the thread:

We’ve now got a lot of material from Crossfire Hurricane and Mueller’s operation.

A lovers’ quarrel, classified codenames, confidential emails, vulgarity, biased texts, internal debates about FBI/DOJ strategy, media leaking and more.

But there is one thing we haven’t seen in any text, any Lync chat, any email, any document, any interview, any Congressional testimony or any report.

Not in any of the thousands upon thousands of files released.

*The words “civil rights” and any concern for them* 👈

Even the so-called “boy scout” with a conscience and head of FBI counterintelligence Bill Priestap seems like he was only concerned about setting up 30-year combat vet Flynn because “playing games” might make the “institution” of the FBI look bad & result in political blowback.

Where are the notes of FBI agents or DOJ officials saying, “gee, setting up a pretext to interview someone as part of an investigation we know is bogus might violate this persons civil rights. It might harm their life, liberty and pursuit of happiness even. Let’s rethink this.”

Where are the texts worrying about whether it is moral to try to get someone fired from the pinnacle of their career, a job as NSA in the White House, bringing their life crashing down around their ears?

Why don’t Comey’s memos about Trump asking if he can “let Flynn go” mention that the *Comey’s own FBI field office* wanted to let Flynn go a month earlier, because they had *nothing*, zero on him? Even after the plan Comey set in motion got Flynn fired in disgrace? Slip his mind?

Why is nobody writing a memo to themselves asking if they’re really doing things “by the book” when they keep sending in a spy they must know is lying to them, that they know is pals with “former” Russian intelligence chiefs, who keeps coming up empty, only with exculpatory info?

Why are there no minutes of any meeting between Comey’s crew debating whether it’s a good idea to flip a friend of George Papadopoulos, turning someone he trusted into a weapon wearing a wire against him, then suppressing that the one thing they got was yet more exculpatory info?

And when the “lead FBI attorney” on Crossfire Hurricane finds out that his prime target @carterwpage is a patriot assisting the CIA, rather than a traitor helping the Russians, why is there no email CC’d to everyone saying that, but a doctored, fraudulent one saying the opposite?

“Wow this guy was actually assisting our friends in the agency for years? He served in the military? Okay he’s got some unusual views on Russia but should I really lie to a court so I can spy on this guy, smear him in the press, destroy his business & try to throw him in prison?”

Nobody is writing that email, putting down those thoughts in notes, confiding to a close friend, sending an anguished text, worrying about what they could do to these people. Because they didn’t see them as people. Just targets to be destroyed.

But the FBI’s job isn’t to destroy people, or get them fired. It’s to investigate real crimes and protect the country. How does it “protect” the country to destabilize the presidency with a Collusion lie and deprive the intelligence community of Flynn’s renowned expertise?

Bear in mind as you read this that Comey’s crew & all the people who worked on Mueller’s team, and all of the media people who helped them are unrepentant. They don’t care.

It hurts Orange Man, so it’s all justified. They’ll destroy anyone or anything, as long as it destroys him.

Maybe Chris Wray can put some of this down in a memo and send it out on a training course. I’m sure that’ll fix this.

It’s no wonder that US Attorney John Durham is reportedly concerned that no whistleblowers have come forward.

It’s because they don’t think there is anything to blow the whistle on.

They’re all involved. Act accordingly.

/ENDS

Note: This is why it’s probably not a good idea to be demanding specific people are “locked up” or targeted for public investigation. That should only happen at the end of fair & due process. While Comey’s crew don’t think even good guys have rights, the truth is bad guys do too.

[End]

Think about it.

That is all.

New Revelations in the Mike Flynn Case Prove it’s Time to Stop the Madness

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

Maria Bartiromo has good sources. – This sets her apart from Sean Hannity, Greg Jarrett and Sara Carter, the Tick-Tock brigade who have spent the last two years promising Hannity’s listeners and viewers that indictments of the bad actors in the coup cabal were always just around the corner.

Bartiromo didn’t promise that, but if you remember, she did tweet this on Sunday evening:

The case against General Flynn has not been dismissed, but so much new information has come to light since Monday that it is now blatantly obvious that he was, as his attorney Sidney Powell continues to state categorically, set up and framed by the corrupt cabal operating at the top of the DOJ and FBI in early 2017.

The latest tranche of information came yesterday in the form of previously un-released emails and hand-written notes that conclusively demonstrate that the FBI’s goal in the initial interview of Flynn was to set him up:

In a series of tweets last night, former federal prosecutor Andy McCarthy points out that, even after their clear effort to entrap Flynn at that initial Jan. 27, 2017 interview, FBI agents Peter Strzok and Joe Pientka told then-Director James Comey and Dep. Director Andrew McCabe that they did not believe Flynn had lied to them, and apparently recorded that impression in their original 302 filing on the interview (which the FBI continues to claim was somehow “lost”). Comey has in fact stated this in public testimony.

McCarthy continues:

Seems worth reminding: for all the elaborate perjury trap planning, violation of protocol, and dissembling about 302 interview report, FBI did not think Flynn lied and thus never sought to charge him while Comey & McCabe in charge.

Charges were filed only months later by Team Mueller, under circumstances where there is good reason to believe they told him if he didn’t plead guilty, his son would be charged with a felony.

Judge [Emmet Sullivan] should vacate the plea and put onus on DOJ and FBI to tell us whether they’d feel good about going forward with a public trial of this case, so everything that was done and said, and why, can be laid bare. I think hell would freeze over before that. But let’s see.

[End]

As a reminder, and as the notes released yesterday confirm, the entire entrapment effort was based on a phone call that Flynn took with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak during the Trump Transition in December, 2016. During that call, Kislyak raised the issue of outgoing President Obama’s recent imposition of new sanctions on Russia and expulsion of many of their “diplomats” (most of whom were no doubt spies) over allegations of Russian interference in the recent elections.

On the call – which was surreptitiously and probably illegally recorded by the FBI under one of its ill-gotten FISA warrants – Flynn advised Kislyak not to get into an escalating tit-for-tat with the Obama Administration. The notes released yesterday between Strzok and Pientka [Correction: The notes appear to have actually been authored by Bill Priestap, who was Strzok’s boss at the time of the entrapment effort.] reveal their plan to not play the recording of the call for Flynn, but rather to try to entrap him in a lie. This is because they knew they did not really have a case that Flynn had violated the Logan Act, and so they hoped they could build a case that he had lied to federal investigators.

As Comey and others have stated on the public record – Comey said it under oath to a congressional committee – no one at the FBI believed at the time that Flynn had in fact lied to Strzok and Pientka. Which is why Mueller and his American Gestapo thugs ended up coercing a guilty plea out of Flynn by threatening to abuse his son.

This is what was taking place under the imprimatur of the American system of “justice” in 2016 and 2017. This is the kind of clear and repugnant abuse of power that William Barr was brought in as Attorney General to identify and remove from the system. This is the kind of despicable deception of the court and abuse of the public trust that Judge Sullivan has allowed to take place in his courtroom for years now, as General Flynn has been bankrupted and forced to sell his family home.

When is enough enough? When will someone in a position of authority finally, at long last put an end to it and let this man who served his country honorably for more than 30 years get his life back?

McCarthy lays out the obvious solution: Sullivan should allow Flynn to vacate the obviously-coerced plea, which would then allow Barr to respond by withdrawing the charges.

At that point, the punishing of the real bad actors in this case should begin in earnest.

Just as I went to post this piece, President Trump issued the following tweet:

That’s certainly true, and it is fair to note that the President himself has the power to end this ongoing travesty of justice. What’s it going to take for you to act, Mr. President?

That is all.

This Will Drive the Deep State Nuts: Trump Preparing for a Major House-Cleaning

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

Yesterday’s Campaign Update focused on the efforts by Acting Director of National Intelligence (DNI) Ric Grenell to identify and get rid of the bad actors remaining embeded within the Intelligence Community (IC), and the panic that is creating in the Deep State and its corrupt media hacks at the New York Times.

Today, Jonathan Swan – who is actually a pretty solid working journalist – at Axios has a report that will drive the Brennans, Comeys and Clappers of the world even crazier: It turns out that President Trump has assigned people within his body of trusted advisors to spend the last year-and-a-half compiling lists of disloyal government officials, along with names of Trump supporters who are qualified and willing to replace them.

As reported by Swan:

The Trump White House and its allies, over the past 18 months, assembled detailed lists of disloyal government officials to oust — and trusted pro-Trump people to replace them — according to more than a dozen sources familiar with the effort who spoke to Axios.

Driving the news: By the time President Trump instructed his 29-year-old former body man and new head of presidential personnel to rid his government of anti-Trump officials, he’d gathered reams of material to support his suspicions.

  • While Trump’s distrust has only intensified since his impeachment and acquittal, he has long been on the hunt for “bad people” inside the White House and U.S. government, and fresh “pro-Trump” options. Outside advisers have been happy to oblige.

Oh, man, heads must be exploding at the Times, the Washington Post, CNN and MSNBC over this one. And can you imagine the nervous breakdowns taking place all over the offices of the CIA, FBI, DOJ and State Department?

Perhaps the best part of Swan’s piece is his concluding paragraph:

The bottom line: As the New York Times’ Peter Baker wrote on Saturday, “in some of the most critical corners of the Trump administration, officials show up for work now never entirely sure who will be there by the end of the evening — themselves included.”

Good. Great. Fantastic. This is three years overdue, a house-cleaning the President has been counseled to forego due to political factors and the interminable coup d’etat effort against him led by Rod Rosenstein, Robert Mueller, Adam Schiff and Nancy Pelosi.

Now that the idiotic impeachment scam has run its course, President Trump – according to Swan – feels liberated, free to finally rid his administration of seditious Obama/Bush/Clinton holdovers and put his own people into key positions. In every previous presidential administration in our history, this kind of house-cleaning was considered to be standard operating procedure. But due to the efforts of the Deep State and its corrupt media toadies, it has taken three long years enduring constant leaks, subversions and betrayals for this President to feel free to finally do what he was elected to do.

Man, this is going to be some fun.

That is all.

Lindsey Graham Kicks the Can Down the Road One More Time

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

He’s not even talking a good game anymore. – Listen carefully to the second clip below of Senator Lindsey Graham, Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, as he essentially tells us that he is just going to keep talking, while at the same time doing nothing of any substance:

Here’s a transcript of that second clip, as Maria Bartiromo begins by asking him exactly what he plans to do in the next two weeks.:

Graham: You’re gonna have people interviewed by my staff and others, to find, to get the foundation. Before I call McCabe and Comey, I wanna find out exactly what happened. I wanna find out who told what to who, and then we’ll call ’em. I just can’t believe that…the investigation fell apart…In January 2017, they got two more warrants after they knew it was a bunch of garbage. How could that possibly happen?

Bartiromo: Yeah, and I just want to point out our timeline, which is this counterintel that happened way before July 31st of 2016, which is when the FBI said their investigation into Trump began. We go all the way back to December of 2015 on this timeline, when Michael Flynn was invited to Russia to sit next to Putin. Then you’ve got Papadopoulous meeting with Joseph Mifsud in April of 2016. Papadopoulous also invited to Rome where he was introduced to Mifsud as early as March of 2016. This is something John Durham is looking at. All of this activity before the beginning of this investigation. Why send these informants into Trump campaign people? Do you believe this is what John Durham is looking at as well?

Graham: Yeah, I think he’s looking at how it started. [Oh. You don’t say.] You gotta remember, the Mueller investigation was started after Comey was fired, because Rosenstein wanted Mueller to look at possible criminal activity by the Trump campaign.

Here’s my question to Rosenstein: If you knew then what you know now, that it was a bunch of garbage, would you have appointed Mueller? There was no crime; the Dossier was the basis of the warrant; in January, 2017 it was a bunch of garbage; the guy who provided the information to Steele rejected the Dossier’s being reliable. How could they continue? Why did it take two years for Mueller to figure this out? He should’ve figured it out in a week.

[End]

Ok, so, The essence of what you see and read here is that, as Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Lindsey Graham has made zero progress in a year. A full year ago, he was doing TV interviews saying and asking the exact same things he says and asks in this interview.

The only thing that is evolving and progressing related to any of this is his talking points and rationale for kicking the can down the road:

  • In February of last year, he had to wait to hold any hearings until newly-appointed AG William Barr had had time to get confirmed and acclimated into office;
  • In May of last year, he had to wait until Robert Mueller had testified before the House Judiciary Committee;
  • In September of last year, he had to wait until the House had run through its idiotic impeachment scam, for reasons that made no sense at all;
  • In November of last year, he had to wait until John Durham had completed his own investigation;
  • In January, he had to wait until the Senate Trial had been fully adjudicated.

So, here we are, a full year later, and all of these things have run their course, leaving Lindsey out of semi-valid excuses for further delay. Thus, now he turns to process: Before he can hold any hearings, he’s basically telling Bartiromo in this interview that he must wait until his staff has interviewed all the potential witnesses and conducted their own freaking investigation. And not just his staff, but these nebulous “others” who are not identified.

This single statement right here is a ticket for infinite delay: “I wanna find out who told what to who, and then we’ll call ’em.”

Of course, the truth is that we already know “who told what to who.” We know it ad nauseum, in fact, from the thousands of hours of testimony and millions of documents on the public record today that have been compiled by all the previous investigations that have been conducted into all of this. Graham has no real reason to have his staff spend weeks and months re-interviewing McCabe, Comey and all the other bad actors from the Obama era: All he and his staff need to do is review the massive record that has already been accumulated through more than three solid years of investigations, issue subpoenas for testimony, and start asking some damn questions in public hearings.

Maria Bartiromo seems to be a well-intentioned individual. At some point, one would hope that she would take the time to go back and conduct a review of all of her interviews with Graham since he became Chairman of Senate Judiciary, so she can see how the Senator has been stringing her and her audience along on this thing. And then, perhaps, get him back on the show and demand that he stop with the nonsense and provide some real answers.

Bottom line: If you are thinking you’re ever going to get anything real out of Lindsey Graham and the Senate Judiciary Committee in regard to trying to hold all the Obama-era bad actors accountable for their seditious actions, you are destined to be extremely disappointed. He has no intention of doing a damn thing.

On the positive side, Graham and his committee continues to confirm a butt-load of Trump judicial appointees. So, take that for what it’s worth and be happy about it, because that is all you are ever going to get from Graham’s chairmanship of this committee.

That is all.

Another Comey Investigation, Another Chance for William Barr to Finally Act

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

Yet another narrative-setter from the NYTimes’s deep state mouthpiece hack, Adam Goldman. – Honestly, this is getting to be almost as frequent as the stock market closing at new record highs, something that also happened yet again on Thursday.

Goldman posted a piece yesterday designed to set the narrative for the Times’s Deep State managers, this time in favor of our National Teenage Drama Queen, former FBI Director James Comey. Goldman gets down to his cover business right from the start, with this headline:

Justice Dept. Investigating Years-Old Leaks and Appears Focused on Comey

Oh, hey, it’s just more leaks by Comey – and hey, we all have known for years Comey was a serial leaker – and the leaks in question might have involved classified information, but they are “years-old”, so what’s the big deal here? Right? Right.

But then Goldman really gets down to business with his sub-head, which is an even more blatantly-slanted statement designed to convince readers to condemn not the criminal – Comey – but the investigators:

An inquiry into years-old disclosures of classified information is highly unusual and leaves law enforcement officials open to accusations of politicizing their work.

So, that’s a two-for-one deal, not only sucking up to the Drama Queen, but also consistent with the corrupt news media’s ongoing efforts to smear Attorney General William Barr. Goldman has achieved all of that, and we haven’t even gotten into the text of his piece. That’s gold star stuff right there.

Let’s go to the first two paragraphs, of the piece, which first lay out the bare bones of what is actually taking place, and then quickly manages to also smear President Donald Trump:

WASHINGTON — Federal prosecutors in Washington are investigating a years-old leak of classified information about a Russian intelligence document, and they appear to be focusing on whether the former F.B.I. director James B. Comey illegally provided details to reporters, according to people familiar with the inquiry.

The case is the second time the Justice Department has investigated leaks potentially involving Mr. Comey, a frequent target of President Trump, who has repeatedly called him a “leaker.” Mr. Trump recently suggested without evidence that Mr. Comey should be prosecuted for “unlawful conduct” and spend years in prison.

There’s that favorite corrupt media phrase, “without evidence,” which is only used against Republicans and always manages to ignore the mountain of information in the public domain supporting the President’s statement. But hey, that’s what corrupt reporters at the New York Times are trained to do, so Goldman might get a promotion for checking off so many Deep State narrative piece boxes before we even get to his third paragraph.

You have to go to paragraph 4 to get to the essence of what the investigators are really looking into:

Law enforcement officials are scrutinizing at least two news articles about the F.B.I. and Mr. Comey, published in The New York Times and The Washington Post in 2017, that mentioned the Russian government document, according to the people familiar with the investigation. Hackers working for Dutch intelligence officials obtained the document and provided it to the F.B.I., and both its existence and the collection of it were highly classified secrets, the people said.

So, hey, Comey was leaking “highly classified secrets” to the New York Times (shocking!) and the Washington Post, the two major print mouth organs for the Democrat Party and the Deep State, which are largely, but not entirely, the same thing. Given everything we have found out about these three specific players over the last four years, this is akin to informing the Times readership that water is indeed wet.

So, what is the actual, exact nature of this “Russian intelligence document,” you ask? Well, you naturally have to go deep into bowels of the report where few of the Times short attention span readers will bother to tread to discover that it is actually nothing more than an official Democrat National Committee email sent by then-DNC Chairman Debbie Wasserman Schultz to one Leonard Benardo, an official with the Open Society Foundations, a group funded by … wait for it … George Soros.

Oh.:

The latest investigation involves material that Dutch intelligence operatives siphoned off Russian computers and provided to the United States government. The information included a Russian analysis of what appeared to be an email exchange during the 2016 presidential campaign between Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Democrat of Florida who was also the chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee at the time, and Leonard Benardo, an official with the Open Society Foundations, a democracy-promoting organization whose founder, George Soros, has long been a target of the far right.

Note the sympathetic nod to Soros at the end, which attempts to portray this despicable Democracy-destroying monster as some sort of victim. This is how depraved Goldman really is.

The next paragraph is a real doozy, which is why Goldman and his corrupt editors buried it so deeply:

In the email, Ms. Wasserman Schultz suggested that then-Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch would make sure that Mrs. Clinton would not be prosecuted in the email case. Both Ms. Wasserman Schultz and Mr. Benardo have denied being in contact, suggesting the document was meant to be Russian disinformation.

So, gee, here we have the Chairman of the DNC telling a radical anti-American Soros operative that Loretta Lynch was putting in the fix on the Clinton email investigation. Gosh, imagine that.

But Goldman attempts to come to Lynch’s rescue two paragraphs later, working very hard to imply that the official DNC email is just a Russian fake:

Whether the document was fake remains an open question. But American officials at the time did not believe that Ms. Lynch would hinder the Clinton email investigation, and neither Ms. Wasserman Schultz nor Mr. Benardo had any inside information about it. Still, if the Russians had released the information after the inquiry was closed, it could have tainted the outcome, hurt public confidence in the Justice Department and sowed discord.

That first sentence is an outright fabrication. Many experts have examined the raft of DNC emails that have been made public since 2016, and not a single one of those emails has been found to have been fake. That is a disgraceful fake news sentence. Thus, totally expected from a Deep State toady at the New York Times.

Then there’s the sentence about “American officials” at the time not believing that Lynch would hinder the Clinton fake investigation by the FBI: Who was a higher “official” within the Democrat Party than the freaking Chairman of the DNC, the person who is outright telling a Soros lackey that the AG was in fact fixing the FBI’s fake investigation?

The piece just gets more disgustingly biased from there, but you can read the rest for yourselves if you care to do so.

Bottom line: All of this information most likely came from Comey and his lawyers, who are probably the “sources” for Goldman. Here we have Comey under investigation one more time for his serial leaking, a pattern of behavior that William Barr’s DOJ already decided to give the Drama Queen a pass on when he was actually the subject of a criminal referral last year by IG Michael Horowitz.

There is no real doubt that Comey is guilty; the only question is whether or not Barr will ever decide to do anything about it. This is a crime for which hundreds of millions of ordinary Americans would spend time in prison for committing. Why should Jim Comey be any different? Of course, we all know the answer to that by now.

So, once again, William Barr is presented with a prime opportunity to prove that he is indeed dedicated to ending the two-tiered system of justice that Attorneys General of the 21st century have fully implemented in our country. This very, very low-hanging fruit for an AG with good intent.

I wish I had more confidence that Barr would to finally, at long last, pick that low-hanging fruit and do something real.

That is all.

Christopher Wray Wants to Keep the FBI’s Raging Dumpster Fire Burning

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

This guy has got to go. – Some folks just need firing, and FBI Director Christopher Wray is the poster child for that reality. The FBI was a raging dumpster fire under James Comey, and nothing has changed under the worthless apparatchik who was appointed by President Trump on the advice of Rod Rosenstein and Jeff Sessions to succeed him.

If anything, Wray appears to want to just keep stoking the flames of that dumpster fire to higher levels, which he managed to succeed at doing with two moves late this past week.

First, Wray filed an inexcusable response to the December demand by lead FISA Court judge Rosemary Collyer (who has since resigned) that the FBI take action to prevent future abuses of the FISA warrant process. Collyer’s letter was issued in reaction to the December 11 report by DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz, which revealed massive wrongdoing by higher-ups in the Comey-era FBI in their efforts to spy on the Trump Campaign, Trump Transition Team and Trump Administration.

Wray’s proposed “solution” to the blatant abuse of process by myriad FBI officials is to…wait for it…mandate more training. Yeah, just what you’d expect from a useless bureaucrat who would be more at home in some corporate Human Resources department than in leading what is supposed to be the nation’s premier law enforcement agency.

Making matters worse, the letter sent to the FISA Court on Friday was signed by Wray and…wait for it again…utterly corrupt FBI lawyer Dana Boente, who actually signed one of the four FISA applications that was used to facilitate the Comey FBI’s spying operation. You seriously cannot make this stuff up:

As if that weren’t despicable and indefensible enough, Wray compounded this insult to basic public integrity by appointing former assistant attorney general for national security David S. Kris to oversee the FBI’s fancy new training program. Kris, if anything, is even more corrupt than Boente, a guy with Spygate basically tatooed on his forehead.

This is a guy who, in addition to being a noted Obama loyalist, is also associated with the scumbags at Lawfare, the group that has provide the contract lawyers who have planned, managed and driven the Schiff/Pelosi/Nadler impeachment scam.

As reported by the Daily Caller:

Kris was also among the many pundits dismissive of Republican allegations that the FBI mishandled information in the Steele dossier. One of Kris’s main targets was Nunes, a California Republican who relentlessly pursued information from the FBI about the Trump-Russia probe.

In his March 1, 2018, essay at Lawfare, Kris wholeheartedly defended the FBI’s actions in the Trump-Russia probe, while criticizing Nunes over a memo he released Feb. 2, 2018, laying out a list of alleged problems with the FBI’s rationale to surveil Page.

Kris asserted that Nunes “falsely accused the FBI of deceiving the FISA Court.” He also questioned whether Nunes and other Republicans would “face any consequences for their dishonesty.”

“The Nunes memo was dishonest. And if it is allowed to stand, we risk significant collateral damage to essential elements of our democracy,” wrote Kris, who is now a consultant at Culper Partners and frequent guest on MSNBC.

Kris went as far as entertaining the possibility, first proposed by Harvard law professor Laurence Tribe, that “Nunes might be prosecuted for obstruction of justice.”

Kris also wrote that the memo’s central claim that the FBI misled the FISC about Christopher Steele “was not true.”

Oh. Ok.

But, in a transparently fake move designed to justify receiving his assignment from Wray, Kris has had a sudden fake “change of heart”:

Kris has acknowledged since the release of the IG report that the FBI committed some “significant and serious” errors in its Carter Page FISA applications. He also conceded in a Lawfare essay published Dec. 23, 2o19, that Nunes’s assertion that the FBI engaged in irregular behavior was “correct.”

This is a blatant middle finger by Wray to President Trump, and the President understands that, as evidenced by this tweet issued on Saturday:

The President well knows that no FBI dirty cops will pay any real price so long as Christopher Wray remains ensconced as the FBI Director. Wray not only has no intention at all of putting out the agency’s raging dumpster fire, he is in fact dedicated to stoking its flames.

The only solution here is for the President to fire the man. Once this impeachment nonsense has been dealt with in the Senate, doing that needs to be Job 1 at the White House.

That is all.
