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.

James Baker Flips and Sydney Powell Lowers the Boom

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

Has ex-FBI General Counsel James Baker turned state’s evidence in the Barr/Durham criminal probe? –  You be the judge.

Last night, Ned Ryun, CEO and Founder of American Majority, appeared on One America News with host Jack Posobiec. The interview covered yesterday’s epic evidentiary tour de force in the Gen. Mike Flynn trial [more on that later] by badass attorney Sydney Powell and ended with Ryun’s startling claim that multiple former FBI/DOJ officials have confirmed to him that Baker is now a cooperating witness with Barr and Durham. Here is the vido clip of that interview, followed by a transcript:

For those of you dinosaurs who, like me, still like to read stuff, here is a transcript of the interview:

Posbiec: Two very important reports last night. First, that Barr and Durham are now conducing a criminal investigation. Second, that here comes Sydney Powell, in the Flynn Case, laying out what essentially is a conspiracy by high-level officials at the FBI and CIA working to entrap General Mike Flynn.

Ryun: Yeah, Jack, if all of these reports are true, and it’s increasingly looking like it, what we have suspected for months, that Barr and Durham were interested in getting to a criminal investigation. If this is true, they will get to the bottom of this.

The fact that we now see Durham has called grand juries. I think actually, Jack, this didn’t happen just in the last few days. I think that Durham has probably convened a grand jury weeks ago. But the amazing part is that the left, the administrative state players, the Democrats, their propagandists in the media tried to cow Bill Barr when he said that he thought there might have been spying that took place months and months ago, they tried to cow him into not pursuing this.

Bill Barr is going to pursue this, and I want to remind the listener, the viewers of this, Jack: Not only does he have experience and was at the CIA, and obviously was AG [under Bush 41] and has a lot of experience with the DOJ, people forget that Bill Barr was in private corporate practice for years. And you know what he was doing? He was a defense lawyer against government intrusion and abuse.

Bill Barr, I am convinced of this, is determined to not only get to the bottom of how this started and who abused their power, but he wants to set things right.

Posobiec: Sydney Powell has introduced into evidence the fact that Lisa Page and Peter Strzok, working together, actually edited and altered the 302 interview of General Flynn to make it appear that he had lied. What does that mean?

Ryun: The most important thing that we have to focus on is there have to be consequences. I’ve said this for months: There have to be consequences, there has to be jail time. All of this is based off trust. And I want the listeners and viewers to understand this: The law enforcement regime and the surveillance state here in the U.S. ultimately all come down to one word: Trust.

That trust has been shattered. Our trust in institutions, our trust in the people who actually are inside of those institutions have been shattered. And the only way that you restore that trust is for there to be consequences for their actions, and those consequences? Jail.

Posbiec: We have long questioned who exactly was it that leaked the highly-classified transcript of General Flynn’s phone call with the Russian ambassador. In this filing, Sydney Powell is stating that it was James Baker, the general counsel of the FBI, and that the Washington Post ran it at the urging of James Clapper.

Ryun: Yeah, no, I don’t doubt that. I do believe James Baker was guilty of leaking, I believe he did some things that he will have to bear the consequences for. But I’ve talked with some former high-level DOJ officials, Jack, who worked with James Baker back in the day. They believe that he is actually Witness #1 for Durham and Barr, that he is actually providing evidence against others inside of this entire investigation.

Let’s not forget: Not only was he general counsel at the FBI, he was also the FISA guy at the DOJ. I believe that he based a lot of what he did in the FISA process off trusting others. According to these sources, he has been used and abused, and he is actually being helpful to Barr and Durham. I think he will have to bear the consequences for some of his actions that I believe he is guilty of, but at the same time I think he’s being extremely helpful.

Posobiec: So, what you’re saying is that Baker has flipped.

Ryun: I do believe Baker has flipped based on my sources that have known and worked with Baker for years.

Posbiec: Thank you so much for being on with us today.

[End]

If Baker really has flipped, that is an enormous development in this investigation, since he will know where all the bodies are buried. Let’s hope it’s true.

As for Ms. Powell’s amazing filing of evidence in the Flynn Case on Friday, the folks over at The Conservative Treehouse have a terrific piece detailing and analyzing all of it, and you should check it out. It is long, but it is also a must-read for anyone hoping to understand how Strzok, Page and other FBI skunks attempted to frame Gen. Flynn.

For those of you who just like to look at videos, here is an interview Ms. Powell conducted with Lou Dobbs on Friday:

That is all. For now, anyway.

No Sympathy for the Devil, er, Robert Mueller

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

Reminder: Arkancide can strike at anytime, anywhere. – Convicted and newly-accused pedophile and longtime friend of the Clintons Jeffrey Epstein was found “injured and in a fetal position inside his cell at a New York city jail” yesterday, according to officials involved in his current legal proceedings.

NBC Channel 4 in New York City reports that jail officials initially claimed the incident was the result of an attempted “suicide”, but Channel 4 says another source claims that “an assault has not been ruled out, and that another inmate was questioned.” Oh, you don’t say.

The story continues: “The inmate who investigators have talked to in Lower Manhattan facility has been identified as Nicholas Tartaglione, according to two sources. Tartaglione is a former police officer in Westchester County who was arrested in December 2016 and accused of killing four men in an alleged cocaine distribution conspiracy, then burying their bodies in his yard in Otisville in Orange County, according to court records.”

Sounds like a prince of a man. Hey, wonder if he’s ever been to Arkansas?

Sympathy for Robert Mueller? Sorry, I’m all out. – I was criticized yesterday for not showing proper “sympathy” for Robert Mueller, given his obviously diminished state. I received several notes pointing out that Mueller is after all an ex-Marine (we should all be grateful for that service) and that our real ire should be directed at the evil Andrew Weissman and the other Mueller bad hires who actually ran the two-year Witch Hunt and actually wrote the despicable final Mueller Report.

Well, sorry, folks, I’m not buying that nonsense. While Mueller is, as noted above, in an obviously diminished mental state and at this point appears to barely have his wits about him, let’s all review how he ended up in that witness chair yesterday:

  • It is well-documented that Mueller is in fact a very close friend of James Comey – despite his hemming and hawing on that yesterday – whose highly-justified firing was used by Rod Rosenstein as the pretense to create the Special Counsel investigation. That conflict of interest alone would have led an actual ethical person to refuse the appointment. Mueller didn’t care.
  • It is also well-documented that, in the week leading up to the appointment, Mueller held a series of meetings with Rosenstein – another close friend, another blatant conflict of interest – in which they discussed the prospect of his becoming Special Counsel.
  • Even worse, it is well-documented – despite Mueller’s half-hearted denial – that the day before he was appointed to become Special Counsel by his good friend Rosenstein, Mueller actually met with President Donald Trump himself, to discuss the open FBI Director’s position.
  • Mueller didn’t take this job on the spur of the moment, as so many in our fake news media have falsely claimed, he plotted to get this job.

Ask yourself: Are these the behaviors of an admirable man, a man for whom we should now have sympathy because he is obviously aging badly? But there is more, much, much more:

  • We are supposed to now be angered at Weissman, the “real” bad guy here (and he is a very, very bad guy), but who hired Weissman? Robert Mueller hired Weissman, knowing fully his sordid history of abusing his power and ignoring the law, and knowing fully his support of Hillary Clinton and personal animus towards President Trump.
  • Even worse than that, Mueller took the job knowing from Day 1 that, in the famous words of Super Duper ex-FBI Agent and aspiring Latin Lover Peter Strzok, there was no ‘there there.’ Mueller and everyone he hired knew from the first day on the job that “Russia Collusion” was a fantasy play invented by the DNC, the Clinton Campaign and Christopher Steele with cooperation from agents from a variety of foreign governments including – gasp! – RUSSIA.
  • Mueller took the job knowing that the job was in fact an attempt at a coup d’etat on American soil, an effort to remove a sitting, duly-elected President of the United States of America by whatever means he and his evil minions could concoct.
  • Regardless of who actually did the work, Mueller lent his name and reputation to this heinous enterprise, an act of mendacity of unprecedented scope and goal in American history.
  • Mueller’s name sat atop the Special Counsel’s offices, no one else’s. All the Gestapo tactics, all the despicable abuses of civil rights, all the early morning raids, all the torture-like imprisonments, all the bully tactics designed to force witnesses to lie to save their own skins – all of those things were conducted under the name of Robert Mueller, no one else.
  • The final report that was issued, the report that threw all semblance of legal ethics and due process so vital to our personal freedoms to the wind, is called “The Mueller Report,” not the Weissman Report. Regardless of who actually wrote the words in that report – words that continuously shocked and visibly surprised Mueller himself when read back to him yesterday – those words were written and published under the name of Robert Mueller, and Robert Mueller personally placed his signature on that report.

So, if y’all want to express your sympathy for Robert Mueller in his obviously-diminished state, you go right ahead. Do it and enjoy it and even signal your virtue about it on social media.

Me? I’ll reserve my sympathies for General Mike Flynn and Jerome Corsi and Roger Stone and George Papadopoulous and all the myriad other American citizens whose constitutional rights were abused and personal lives were destroyed under Mueller’s name. And I will remain angry about the evil fantasy play Mueller put our nation through for the last two solid years.

Damn him for doing it.

That is all.

The Deep State Legacy of Rod Rosenstein

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

The legacy of Rod Rosenstein is a complicated one, and one that, as we will discuss later in this piece, is far from through being compiled.

Some conspiracy theorists on Twitter and some fringe websites like to portray Rosenstein as an American hero, a Machiavellian schemer who makes Machiavelli himself look like a novice in his tireless efforts to protect President Donald Trump as he out-conspiracies the Deep State Cabal that operated within the DOJ and FBI throughout 2016 and 2017. In this scenario, every action Rosenstein has taken since coming into the Trump Administration as Deputy Attorney General in early 2017 has been part of an incredibly complex “Slow Walker” plan schemed up by Donald Trump even before the 2016 elections, a plan that Rosenstein has spent the last two-plus years carrying out.

It’s all a lot of “stuff and nonsense,” to quote the late, great James J. Kilpatrick. Rod Rosenstein is a bad guy. A very, very bad guy, and unlike operation Slow Walker, there is a ton of very public evidence to support that assessment.

For starters, this is a guy who in one week in May 2017 wrote a three-page memo to President Trump detailing myriad reasons why then-FBI Director and current Teen Drama Queen James Comey needed to be fired, and then the very next week turned around and appointed his pal and Comey’s best friend, Robert Mueller, to become a “special counsel” partly to investigate whether Comey’s firing amounted to “obstruction of justice.” The Rosenstein-as-hero people want you to believe that was all a highly patriotic act schemed up by Trump himself.

Holy crap.

Rosenstein is a guy who wrote not one, but two scoping memos for Mueller that allowed the “special counsel” to basically function as a completely out-of-control Witch Hunt, a completely open-ended  “investigation” with no limitations or legal side bars. Rosenstein then spent the next year and a half working feverishly to ensure that neither of those two memos could be made public. We haven’t seen them to this day.

Rosenstein is a guy who actively pushed the idea of having President Trump removed from office under the scope of the 25th Amendment, and at one point volunteered to wear a wire to meetings with the President in an effort to entrap him in some bad act, according to at least two people who have testified under oath to congress. The pushers of Operation Slow Walker want you to believe that Trump planned that, too.

In the Operation Slow Walker scheme, even Jeff Sessions’ idiotic move to recuse himself and set Rosenstein up as the de facto Attorney General was all just a part of Trump’s “5D Chess” conspiracy to entrap the Deep State. I’m not kidding. In that role as de facto Attorney General, Rod Rosenstein sat by and did nothing as Robert Mueller hired a staff of 19 leftwing Clinton/Obama hacks. Rosenstein then sat by as Mueller essentially functioned as Chief of the American Gestapo, allowing his activist staff to order the FBI to knock down doors in the middle of the night and terrorize elderly American citizens who had yet to be accused of any crime.

Rosenstein sat idly by as Mueller and his staff bullied, threatened and destroyed the financial life of a real American hero, General Mike Flynn, who had spent his entire adult life serving his country. Rosenstein, the hero of Operation Slow Walker, sat idly by as Mueller and his band of Gestapo thugs convinced a judge to sentence Paul Manafort – a near-70 year-old man accused of financial crimes having zero to do with “Russia Collusion” – to month after month of solitary confinement.

Rosenstein sad idly by as his buddy Mueller and his thugs deployed no fewer than 37 FBI agents armed with kevlar vests, automatic weapons, tear gas and even – I’m not kidding here – TANKS in the wee hours of the morning to arrest a thin, frail senior citizen named Roger Stone, terrorizing Stone’s wife who suffers from frail health in the process. Stone’s alleged “crime”? Having communications via email with Julian Assange. Not kidding.

This is the “hero” of Operation Slow Walker. What a load of horse manure.

Rosenstein was able to operate with impunity while the useless, neutered Jeff Sessions was in the AG’s office. It is crystal clear that, had Sessions remained in that office, the Mueller operation would still be going today with no end in sight. But Sessions’ resignation (he was really fired, let’s be honest) put a leash on Rosenstein and Mueller when Matthew Whitaker assumed the office as Acting AG. That leash got tugged hard when William Barr was named as the permanent AG.

Rosenstein’s “resignation” was intentionally timed to take place after the issuance of the Mueller report, so that he would be there to support Barr’s assessment of it, and before the issuance of the coming FISA Abuse report from DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz. Barr needs Rosenstein as a witness in any criminal cases that arise from the Horowitz report – Rosenstein was also the signatory on one of the fraudulent FISA applications – something Rosenstein could not do if he were still employed at DOJ.

Coincidentally, Rosenstein’s final day in office will also come two years to the week after he wrote the 3-page memo recommending Comey’s firing.

This guy’s no hero, he’s just another deep state skunk, like his pals Comey and Mueller. The public evidence indicates he was a willing and active, leading participant in an effort to effect a coup d’etat on American soil, an effort that thankfully failed. Once Barr was named Attorney General, Rosenstein likely made a deal to save his own skin, and is probably now working as a cooperating witness in order to save his pension.

Rod Rosenstein was the architect and enabler of the Mueller Witch Hunt, nothing less, nothing more. Our government is well rid of him, but we will most likely be seeing and hearing much more from him in the future in an entirely different role.

Ta ta for now, Rod.

That is all.

James Comey Reaches Peak Teen Drama Queen

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Hey, lookey here – the 302 apparently exists after all! – Waiting until the very last possible moment, Robert Mueller and his gang of Clinton/Obama thugs finally, at long last, produced a document purporting to be the orginal FBI 302 form from the FBI’s entrapment interview with General Mike Flynn. The production of the key document comes just hours before today’s scheduled sentencing hearing, and the document is heavily redacted. Because of course it is.

Les is no more.:  Wait – what’s this? A big media company actually did the right thing in a massive sexual harassment scandal? This must be a work of fiction, right? No? It’s real? Go figure.

Yes, friends, this would never happen at NBC, MSNBC or CNN, but over at CBS Corp., the people in charge decided on Monday to terminate former CEO Les Moonves for cause in the midst of a massive sexual abuse scandal, denying him the $122 million severance package he would have otherwise been entitled to receive. That’s a big deal, one which no doubt sent waves of fear across senior management teams at big media companies everywhere.

Cool.

Teenage Drama Queen Update: Former FBI Director and current Teenage Drama Queen James Comey exited his second tense day of behind-closed-doors testimony on Capitol Hill and had this to say about the tattered reputation of the agency he “led” for several years:

“Director Comey, the FBI’s reputation has taken a big hit over the last year. Do you share any of the responsibility for that?” the [Fox News] reporter asked.

“No. The FBI’s reputation has taken a big hit because the President of the United States, with his acolytes, has lied about it constantly and, in the face of those lies, a whole lot of good people who watch your network believe that nonsense. That’s a tragedy.”

Congressman Mark Meadows, who questioned Comey in Monday’s hearing, responded very succinctly:

Exactly.  Let’s review just some of the reasons why the FBI’s reputation has taken hits in recent years:

  • Comey himself led a sham investigation into Hillary Clinton’s illegal email server;
  • Comey himself led an effort to illegally spy on the Trump presidential campaign and transition team;
  • The FBI revealed to be fully aware of and actively surveiling a series of Islamic terrorists and school shooters;
  • The utter failure of the FBI to conduct anything remotely resembling a competent investigation of the worst mass shooting in American history in Las Vegas;
  • The revelation of the texts of Super Duper Agent Peter Strzok and his mistress Lisa Page;
  • The FBI’s active support of the Gestapo tactics deployed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller;
  • The FBI’s resolute refusal to respond to 2 years of legal document requests issued by an array of congressional committees;
  • The FBI’s habit of “redacting” key passages from key documents solely to cover-up wrongdoing by FBI officials;
  • The repeated commissions of outright perjury before congressional committees by Comey, Andrew McCabe, Strzok and other FBI officials;
  • The firing and forced resignations of a broad array of senior FBI personnel over the past year, including McCabe, Strzok, James Baker and many others.

This list could honestly go on and on, but the point is clear: The reason the FBI’s former reputation as the nation’s premier law-enforcement agency is in tatters today is directly attributable to the Obama-era decision by Comey and his leadership team to stop enforcing the law on anyone associated with the Clintons or the Obamas.  Under Comey, and Robert Mueller before him, the FBI was turned into nothing more than the aggressive attack dog for the Deep State, and that is sadly the state in which it remains today.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders summed the day up perfectly.:

Couldn’t have said it better myself.

Why is Mueller Afraid to Produce the Original Flynn 302 Form?

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Why is Robert Mueller so desperate to keep the original Flynn 302 hidden?: Andy McCarthy, who teams with Victor Davis Hanson as the only two writers worth reading anymore at The National Review, has a piece out this morning in which he asks the single most key point in the effort to frame General Mike Flynn:  Where is the FBI’s 302 form from his January 24, 2017 “interview” with Peter Strzok and another agent?

In their most recent court filing submitted on Friday, Mueller and his team did present a “302” form to the judge in the case – the increasingly impatient Emmet G. Sullivan – but, as McCarthy points out, that form was compiled not from the interview with Flynn, but from an interview Mueller’s team conducted with Strzok in August of 2017, 8 full months after the entrapment meeting with General Flynn. FBI procedure requires agents conducting suspect or witness interviews to memorialize them in 302 forms immediately after they have been completed, not 2/3rds of a year later.

Mueller and his band of Clinton/Obama shills offer no explanation regarding why they did not produce the original 302 or where it is currently located. They appear to be trying to claim that the original document has mysteriously gone missing. Is that really true?

Let’s think this through: The utterly corrupt FBI agent Peter Strzok and another, more junior, agent – whose name is Joe Pientka, although the fake news media continues to pretend to not know his identity – conduct an entrapment interview of General Flynn on orders from then-FBI Director Jim Comey and then-Acting Attorney General Sally Yates. They tell Flynn that this is just a friendly visit, that he has no need for legal counsel to be present, and then proceed to do their best to entrap him in a process crime.

At the end of the interview, Strzok and Pientka look at one another, shrug their shoulders, and agree that Flynn was not lying, or that if he did misstate anything, it was not intentional. We know this to be the case because James Comey himself has confirmed it multiple times under oath before multiple congressional committees.

So, standing there with their big bag of nothing, the senior agent Strzok looks at junior agent Pientka and says something like “have fun spending the next two hours memorializing this bag of nothing in your 302 form,” and walks down the hall to fill in his boss – the utterly corrupt Andrew McCabe – on the day’s failed entrapment effort. Pientka files an honest 302 report on the meeting, and that’s where it all ended. Well, until May, 2017, when the utterly corrupt Rod Rosenstein appointed the utterly corrupt Robert Mueller to become the Special Counsel who would take on the task of building an impeachment case against President Donald Trump.

Mueller spends a couple of months casting about for some bit, any bit of evidence that someone, anyone in the Trump Campaign had indeed “colluded” with the Russians during the 2016 campaign. By August, he too is holding the same big bag of nothing that agents Strzok and Pientka were holding at the conclusion of their January entrapment meeting with General Flynn.

After a discussion with Strzok – who had been on Mueller’s staff in June and July – the two decide that Flynn, who was intimately involved in the Trump Campaign, holds the keys to their kingdom. Flynn had, after all, had a telephone conversation with his Russian counterpart in December 2016 at the behest of then-President-elect Trump. The call was nothing out of the ordinary – a get to know you kind of thing on behalf of an incoming President by that president’s future national security advisor – but it was something. Strzok and Mueller just had to find some hook they could use to start bullying Flynn into saying damaging things about Trump and his campaign.

So they go back to that January 24 meeting and Strzok says something like “hey, maybe that dang Flynn did lie to us after all,” and they call Pientka into the office. When Pientka arrives, Strzok and Mueller try to convince him to alter his original 302 from January.

But here’s the problem: Pientka is the rare non-corrupt FBI agent in the DC office, and he refuses to commit a federal felony by dishonestly altering his original 302 from the meeting. What to do?

Hey, no problem – it’s Peter Strzok to the rescue. Hell, this guy will lie about anything – dummying up a fake 302 form for the purpose of getting rid of President Donald Trump is an act of valor in his demented mind, as we have clearly seen from his thousands of text messages with his mistress, Lisa Page. So, Mueller’s people conduct an interview with Strzok, and voila! – the magic new 302 form from an interview conducted 8 months prior is created.

Much of this is conjecture, sure, but it is a scenario that fits perfectly with the facts as we know them publicly, and it explains so many things about this obvious frame of General Flynn.

For example, multiple congressional committees have been trying for more than a year now to have Agent Pientka come over to Capitol Hill and offer sworn testimony about his and Strzok’s meeting with Flynn.  But Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray have consistently blocked all such efforts. Rosenstein, Wray and Mueller simply cannot afford for that to happen.

One thing is certain: There was a contemporaneous 302 form created by either Strzok or Pientka immediately following their interview with Flynn. Comey and McCabe both have confirmed that fact in sworn testimony. Mueller appears willing to go to any lengths necessary to prevent Judge Sullivan and the American people from seeing what is in that original 302.

This is just one more reason why President Trump not only has an incentive, but an absolute public duty to declassify not just the original 302 in the Flynn case, but all the documents related to the Mueller Witch Hunt, and do it soon.

That is all.

President Trump’s War of Attrition vs. The Deep State

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Paris Burning Update:

Things got calmer on the streets of Gay Pareee this weekend, as 8,000 heavily-armored riot police became more efficient and effective with their use of tear gas, pepper spray and water cannons to placate the masses. Officials estimated the crowds of Yellow Vest protesters mounted to “just” 66,000 or so, about half of what they had to deal with last week, and by the end of Saturday had arrested only 168 souls.

This is what boy Prime Minister Emanuel Macron and his Climate Change enforcers call “progress.” It’s a form of “progress” that will be brought to America soon thanks to your Democrat Party, which never gives up on a good scam.

Speaking of Democrats never giving up on a good scam… – I give you Joe Biden.  Joe’s old.  He’s 76 and would be 78 on Election Day 2020. That’s a year older than Ronald Reagan – our oldest in-office President ever – was when his second term ended.  That’s old, for a serving president. No offense to anyone that age or older, but it just is.

So Biden and his team have been looking around for ways to, um, deflect attention away from the boss’s advanced, ummm, seniority, as it were. And, according to the Associated Press, they’ve come up with a bright idea: Let’s recruit young Beto to be Joe’s running mate in the primaries! I swear I don’t make this stuff up.

I suppose the strategy here would be to say, hey, sure Joe’s 77 years old, but Beto’s just 46, and if you add those up and divide by 2 you get 61 and a half! That’s pretty young, right?

In all seriousness, are voters faced with a candidate who will be well into his 80s before his first term is over going to be placated by the knowledge that, if something happens to Biden, his replacement would be a fidgety skateboarding guitar player with no real qualifications for the office? I’m not sure this is going to work, guys and gals. Matter of fact, I’m pretty sure it isn’t.

It’s a war of attrition now for President Donald Trump. – This was the week when the Deep State’s strategy to force President Trump from office became crystal clear: The plan is to open up so many different investigative fronts that he ends up throwing up his hands in frustration and resigning the office.

And the investigations don’t just target Trump – they target anyone doing a good job on his behalf as well. We lost a great Interior Secretary in Ryan Zinke this week thanks to this strategy, after DOI’s IG’s office – still occupied by Deep State loyalists – had opened up half a dozen different investigations into petty administrative matters the IG studiously ignored for 8 long Obama years.’

The shameful Democrat hack just elected to become New York’s new state attorney general announced this week that she plans to investigate every facet of Trump’s personal and business life, as well as every member of his family. Hey, remember when America used to be a constitutional Republic, and law enforcement officials had a duty to investigate crimes, not individuals? Yeah, the Democrat Party is changing all of that right before your very eyes. Are you paying attention?

This week we saw ex-Trump attorney Michael Cohen sentenced to prison for a variety of crimes that had literally nothing to do with anything remotely related to “Russia Collusion”- in fact, they had nothing to do with his work for Trump at all. Cohen pleaded guilty to things like tax evasion and some nonsense having to do with New York taxi medallions, and for the process crime of lying to investigators, but not to anything related to his work for Trump. Yet, our fake news media has spent the entire week pretending Cohen’s plea is going to get Trump impeached. It won’t.

This week also saw Russian lawyer Maria Butina plead guilty to various process and failure to file charges that again had literally nothing at all to do with Trump or his campaign. Yet our fake news media and their Democrat masters spent the entire week pretending her plea is somehow “proof” of “collusion.” It isn’t.

There’s much more news fakery going on here, but the plan is for the Democrats and the media to keep pounding this drum, day after day, week after week, hounding Trump and anyone loyal to him until he has no base of support surrounding him in the White House and his job approval numbers fall so low that he starts to lose the squishy Republicans in the Senate. At that point, the belief among those in the Deep State is that Trump will pull a Nixon and resign rather than face a potential 2/3rds vote in the Senate for his removal from office.

There are a few problems with this strategy: Richard Nixon did not have the loyal base of support among voters that Donald Trump possesses. Trump’s polling numbers remain at the same level Barack Obama commanded at this point his presidency despite the 95% negative media reporting on him and the withering daily assault of leaks and fake news planted by the Mueller team and other investigators and Deep State snakes.

Nixon also did not have the personal fortune that Trump has at his command, a fortune that allows him to lawyer up and fight all the myriad investigations the Deep State wants to throw his way. Finally, Nixon was not the bull-in-a-China-ship fighter that Donald Trump undeniably is.

But that fighter had better start fighting even more aggressively, and soon. He can start by declassifying all documents related to the sham entrapment case Mueller and his evil team mounted against General Mike Flynn. Mueller refused yet again to comply with Judge Emmett Sullivan’s order to produce the original 302 document from the FBI’s entrapment interview with Flynn that took place in January 2017. Mueller and DOJ officials were also revealed to have erased thousands of text messages from the phones of disgraced ex-FBI skunk Peter Strzok and his paramour Lisa Page last summer.

The President has a duty to declassify every document related to all of that, so that the public can clearly see the Gestapo-like tactics Mueller has been deploying against American citizens in his quest to bring down this presidency.

If DOJ IG Michael Horowitz is really going to produce a report on all the rampant abuse of the FISA process and spying on the Trump Campaign and Transition Team that took place throughout 2016 and 2017, he needs to get that produced posthaste. And what about John Huber, the Salt Lake City U.S. Attorney who Jeff Sessions claimed in early 2018 was conducting his own investigation into all of this? If Huber’s really been doing anything at all, it is long past time to be showing some results.

The Trump supporter base is incredibly loyal, but one senses it is becoming weary and frustrated at the Administration’s unwillingness to defend its President. It made some sense to hold off on doing anything big during the election season, and also to hold off through the Holiday season as well.

But things had better start popping on the President’s behalf shortly after the first of the year, or those polling numbers could well begin falling. President Trump himself has the biggest weapon in his own hands – declassification. Once he does that, the pressure on Horowitz and Huber would escalate considerably to get their own jobs done, assuming they are doing anything at all.

January 2 would be a great day to begin.

That is all.

Mueller is Evil, B**ch Fight on The View, Paris Still Burning, Creepy Porn Lawyer Gone – All in One Day!

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

“Ok, listen up. Here’s the plan: Strzok falsifies the 302s from his interview with Flynn. Then we bully him for months, raid his home, threaten his family, get a false guilty plea from him. And then…we let him off. Pure evil, right?” – Right. American Gestapo Chief, er, ‘special counsel’ Robert Mueller sent his 12 month overdue sentencing memo for General Mike Flynn to the judge in the case on Tuesday, and guess what? It calls for a fine (because ruining him financially just isn’t enough for Mueller and his evil minions) and this:

“Given the defendant’s substantial assistance and other considerations set forth below, a sentence at the low end of the guideline range—including a sentence that does not impose a term of incarceration—is appropriate and warranted.”

We should all be happy with the prospect of an American who has served this country like General Flynn possibly avoiding jail time in this fiasco. But every American, no matter how mindlessly filled with hatred against President Donald Trump they might be, should be outraged that Flynn spent the last two years being put through this un-American, Nazi-like process by Mueller and his evil minions.

It’s an utter, damnable disgrace.

Wait. In 2016 he told us that the Pantsuit Princess was the most qualified person EVER. – Joe Biden, on a book tour like seemingly everyone else on earth, told an audience of multiples of two in Missoula, MT that “I’ll be as straight with you as I can. I think I’m the most qualified person in the country to be president. The issues that we face as a country today are the issues that have been in my wheelhouse, that I’ve worked on my whole life.”

No word if he went on to admit that he had been consistently wrong about all of those issues he’s been working on his whole life, but the odds are against it.

Also, why didn’t any of the “reporters” present think to ask the ex-VP why it is that, if he has been working on these issues his whole life, they all still persist today? But hey, asking that question would have required curiosity and integrity, so obviously it did not get asked.

*sigh*

Paris Burning Watch:

Yes, the “yellow-vest” protest movement that has been burning the streets of Paris for the last two weeks has won a temporary reprieve from the confiscatory carbon tax that the socialist government of Emanuel Macron planned to impose on January 1 in its fool’s effort to “do something” to fight “climate change.”

But only for six months. The French should not kid themselves this is any sort of permanent victory.  The quotes from French Prime Minister Edouard Philippe in this Reuters story are telling:

Prime Minister Edouard Philippe said anyone would have “to be deaf or blind” not to see or hear the roiling anger on the streets over a policy that Macron has defended as critical to combating climate change.

“The French who have donned yellow vests want taxes to drop, and work to pay. That’s also what we want. If I didn’t manage to explain it, if the ruling majority didn’t manage to convince the French, then something must change,” said Philippe.

“No tax is worth jeopardizing the unity of the nation.”

He warned citizens, however, that they could not expect better public services and lower taxes.

“If the events of recent days have shown us one thing, it’s that the French want neither an increase in taxes or new taxes. If the tax-take falls then spending must fall, because we don’t want to pass our debts on to our children. And those debts are already sizeable,” he said.

In other words, over the next six months Macron and Philippe plan to “explain” the confiscatory tax plan designed to make it too expensive for working class French citizens to drive cars or run air conditioners by threatening them with massive cuts to the country’s social services and programs targeting the working and middle class. These cuts would do nothing to fight “climate change,” but the hope is that they will do much to frighten the public into accepting the carbon tax as a less unpleasant alternative.

This is classic leftist government bullying, along the lines of “the beatings will continue until morale improves.”

One spokesman for the “yellow vest” protesters responded to the temporary tax suspension by telling a reporter, “We are being taken for fools.”  Why yes, yes you are.

Meanwhile, from the world of #NeverTrump #Nitwittery…

#NeverTrump nitwit stalwart Max Boot had this to say about Macron back in 2017, and it is glorious:

That’s quite the take, there, Max.  Holy crap.

Speaking of climate change…: If you’re still worried about that U.S. Climate Assessment that was released the day after Thanksgiving, you should take 7 minutes to read this:

Bjorn Lomborg is a real climate scientist, but he’s a social outcast among his peer group because he chooses to tell the truth about sham reports like this one. Again, it’s a very easy read that only takes a few minutes, but it thoroughly exposes how the authors of this report – and our fake news media –  attempted to defraud the American public.  Again.

Read it.  You’ll be glad you did.

Seriously, somebody help me out here…:

This one’s rated PG-13, but it’s hilarious…:

Creepy Porn Lawyer watch:

Don’t go away mad, Creepy Porn Lawyer, just go away…

Man, what a loss that is, right?  Whew.

Buckle up, Folks: “Crossfire Hurricane” Means Things Are About to Speed Up

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Some things to think about as we enter the next phase of this war against the Deep State and the Cabal within DOJ and the FBI that first tried to fix the 2016 election outcome for the Pantsuit Princess, and have spent the last 18 months attempting to bring down the duly-elected President of the United States:

  • Wednesday’s “Crossfire Hurricane” article published by the fake New York Times marks the end of the cover-up phase of this conspiracy.  The more you read that article in detail, the more you realize it has, in the effort to provide justification for the Cabal’s actions, in fact exposed pretty much every detail of the conspiracy.
  • One striking aspect of the report is that, where all the previous fake reports filed by the Times and WaPo in their efforts to help cover up for the Cabal cited only “unidentified sources”, you suddenly have people like Sally Yates, Mary McCord and some others talking on the record in an effort to cover themselves.  This never happened while the cover-up was going on.
  • We are now beginning to see selective leaks today of certain specifics contained in the report of DOJ IG Michael Horowitz, which is being circulated at DOJ and the FBI so those who are named in it have a chance to provide responses.  Those leaks are not coming from the good guys, who have kept this process utterly devoid of leaks for 17 months now.
  • The leaks are coming from the targets, in an effort get the information into the public domain so that their media support group can publish more fake articles providing justification for the cabal’s actions.
  • By the way, note that only the bad actors who remain employed at DOJ and FBI get the opportunity to read the report in advance.  Those who have already been given their walking papers – people with names like McCabe and Yates and McCord and Page and Baker and Comey and Brennan and Lynch and on and on and on – receive no such opportunity.
  • This helps explain why the only people talking on the record to the Times were people who no longer worked at those agencies.  It also makes it very likely that the leaks are coming from the bad actors still employed.  Think about it.
  • We need to also remember something key here:  While the Times article claims that the Cabal was very careful to keep its actions secret so as not to lend credibility to Trump’s claims of a rigged election, the truth is that details of what was going on were being leaked all over the damn place in real time.  The media was filled with anonymously-sourced articles detailing accusations about Carter Page, General Flynn and Paul Manafort throughout the summer and fall of 2016.  Where are we supposed to believe this information was coming from?  The answer is obvious, and that leads to the next bullet point here, which is…
  • …there are some in the fake news media who were complicit in all of this.  Reporters and editors and TV hosts who were coordinating efforts and messages and timing of articles with this effort to fix the election, and later with the effort to take down the President.  As the evidence of wrongdoing is presented in the IG report and in court cases that will follow, it will not be all that difficult for independent researchers to go back through the media record to figure out who those complicit individuals are.  This scandal does not end at the exit to the Hoover Building.
  • Finally, one of the leaks about the Horowitz report today is particularly interesting to me:  Real journalist Paul Sperry issued this tweet on Thursday afternoon:

  • If true, this clearly demonstrates the coordinated effort going on between Horowitz and his army of more than 400 investigators and Salt Lake City U.S. Attorney John Huber.  If you remember, Attorney General Jeff Sessions cleverly let it be known in an interview several weeks back that he didn’t need to create a second Special Counsel because he had had Huber and his team working in coordination with the IG since at least last October.  It is very, very likely that Huber has had at least one, and possibly multiple grand juries convened for months now, and that he will be ready to move quickly towards prosecuting the bad actors once the IG’s report has been issued.

If you think things have been moving quickly up to now, well, better buckle up, because they’re only going to move faster from here on out.

That is all.
