Wednesday News Roundup: Trump Disrupts the Swamp With Veto Threat, Pardons

[After a week in the dumpster with technical issues, DBDailyUpdate is back up and running this morning thanks to the sterling efforts of an excellent firm that provides an array of fully-managed hosting services. I have retained their services going forward, so the days of me struggling to try to get these problems figured out myself are over. 

I had previously considered just taking the rest of this terrible year off, but let’s face it: There’s just too much going on for that to really happen. So, enough small talk: Let’s go to the Wednesday News Roundup.]

Dear Congress: Donald Trump is still your President. Deal with it. – At least, he’s still the President until January 20th, a fact that is causing a great deal of consternation among the Democans and Republicrats in congress this morning, after the President released a 4-minute video clip promising to veto the atrocity of a $900 billion COVID spending bill they sent over to his desk on Tuesday.

That clip and a full transcript of the President’s remarks are contained in a separate post this morning. Suffice it to say, congressional Democans and Republicrats are not real happy this morning as they awake to the reality that their own planned two-week vacations are being interrupted by a POTUS who won’t just sign off on their latest effort to loot the American taxpayer.

President Trump is also threatening to veto the separate, $1.4 trillion defense/spending bill congress also passed on Monday evening. Lindsey Graham tweeted last night that the President would reconsider both vetoes if the bills were amended to include a larger payment to U.S. citizens and to include repeal of Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, language that enables the big tech social media monopolies to engage in rank discrimination:

The problem the Democans and Republicrats in congress have here is that, at this point, the President has nothing to lose by vetoing these bills, given the current “official” status of the election outcome, in which China Joe Potato Head Biden has been declared the “winner” by Dominion Systems and corrupt election officials in Georgia, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, Arizona and Nevada.

President Trump doesn’t have to worry about ever standing for re-election again, and hey, what’s one more bad media day for this man? Yes, unemployment benefits are scheduled to expire on Saturday unless a bill is signed into law to extend them, but the President has placed that ball squarely back in Congress’s court.

So, senators and representatives who rushed out of DC on Monday evening and during the day on Tuesday are probably going to have to rush back out to the Swamp to do a little damage control, and that will not make them happy, not at all.

Cool.

Pardon me? – No, but the President did issue pardons for 15 Americans on Tuesday, including George Papadopoulous, who was one of the main subjects of the illegal spying operation mounted by Obama’s FBI and Intelligence Community against the 2016 Trump Campaign. This is great news, as Papadopoulous did nothing wrong, but was bullied by the Mueller Gestapo into pleading guilty to a meaningless perjury charge back in 2018 in order to avoid his family members being targeted, just as they did to General Mike Flynn.

Other Trump pardons included former GOP congressmen Duncan Hunter and Steve Stockman, demonstrating that even Trump himself is not immune to the political demands of the Swamp. Those pardons were definitely undeserved.

The President also pardoned two former Border Patrol officers who were subjected to an entirely political prosecution over the killing of an illegal alien during the George W. Bush administration. Their sentences were previously commuted by Bush, but these full pardons finally give them some real justice, although nothing can ever undo the harm caused to their lives by the corrupt Department of Justice.

The rest of the pardons are detailed in this Business Insider piece:

Among the former lawmakers Trump pardoned was Duncan Hunter, who pleaded guilty last year to one count of misusing campaign funds. He was sentenced to 11 months in prison but has not yet begun serving out his sentence.

Also on the list was former GOP congressman Steve Stockman, who was convicted in 2018 on 23 felony counts of fraud, money laundering, conspiracy, and false statements. Stockman was sentenced to ten years in prison and ordered to pay more than $1 million in restitution. Trump commuted the remainder of Stockman’s sentence on Tuesday, citing his age, his pre-existing health conditions, and the fact that he contracted COVID-19 while in prison.

Trump also granted a pardon to former Rep. Chris Collins, who pleaded guilty last year to making false statements to the FBI and conspiracy to commit securities fraud. He is currently serving out a 26-month sentence.

The four Blackwater guards Trump pardoned on Tuesday were found guilty in connection to a deadly shooting in Baghdad that killed 17 Iraqi civilians. One of the former contractors, Nicholas Slatten, was convicted of first-degree murder and is serving out a lifetime prison sentence. The other three defendants were convicted of multiple counts of voluntary manslaughter, attempted manslaughter, and firearms offenses.

The two former Border Patrol agents the president pardoned, Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean, were convicted in 2006 for shooting and injuring an unarmed undocumented immigrant. Their sentences were later commuted by President George W. Bush, and Trump granted them full pardons on Tuesday.

[End]

The real shame in all of this is that Papadopoulous had to wait so long to have his name fully cleared. But that’s how the DC Swamp works.

Fantastic! How can I help? – The corrupt news media will be all verklempt about it, but this is wonderful news for America: Lindsey Graham and Ted Cruz are trying to convince President Trump to submit both the Obama Iran Nuclear deal and the Paris Climate Accords to the Senate for ratification:

Graham and Cruz know without any doubt at all that neither deal – which Obama executed as “executive agreements” during his 8-year reign of terror against the American Republic – could possibly garner the 2/3rds approval of the senate needed for ratification, thus killing them completely dead before China Joe Potato Head can assume office and re-implement them as executive agreements.

It’s a fantastic plan, and we should all hope that President Trump takes advantage of it.

Here’s an excerpt from a story at the UK Independent:

Republican senators Ted Cruz and Lindsey Graham have reportedly urged Donald Trump to submit both the Iran nuclear deal and the Paris Climate Agreement to the Senate, in a last-minute attempt to stop the US rejoining the accords once the president leaves office.

In a letter obtained by RealClearPolitics, Mr Cruz, from Texas, urged Mr Trump and US secretary of state Mike Pompeo to submit the accords to the Senate before President-elect Joe Biden is inaugurated on 20 January.

Mr Cruz said that submitting the international agreements would trigger votes to ratify them, which are unlikely to pass with a tight Senate, as they would need the support of two-thirds of senators, according to iran-nuclear-deal-republicans-aim-to-block-biden-rejoining”>The Guardian.

The senator claims that if the accords fail to be ratified, it would effectively block Mr Biden from rejoining them, as he would have to contradict a recent decision from the Senate.

A senior congressional aide told RealClearPolitics that submitting the accords to fail in the Senate “would be the final nail in the coffin.”

In his letter to the president, Mr Cruz wrote: “I urge you now to remedy the harm done to the balance of powers by submitting the Iran deal and the Paris agreement to the Senate as treaties.”

He added: “Only by so doing will the Senate be able to satisfy its constitutional role to provide advice and consent in the event any future administration attempts to revive these dangerous deals.”

[End]

Understand that all Cruz and Graham are advising President Trump to do is to subject these two treasury-looting deals to the normal course of order that Obama should have been required to follow. Constitutionally, this is the process required to commit the United States of America to such international agreements, a process that has been bastardized and corrupted by decades of horrible Supreme Court decisions enabling Obama’s betrayals.

Do it, Mr. President. After all, what have you got to lose?

That is all.

Sally Yates Testimony Proves America Needs a Durham Report After All

I and others have argued for the past year against any need for a “report” from John Durham at the completion of his investigation into SpyGate/ObamaGate, whatever you wish to call it. Mr. Durham is, after all, a federal prosecutor, and the job of a prosecutor is not to write reports like those we have seen from Inspector General Michael Horowitz since 2017, but to convene grand juries, obtain indictments, file charges, have the FBI make arrests and then obtain convictions.

The argument against the need for any voluminous report from Durham is that compiling such a thing would be a waste of time that would distract Durham and his staff from focusing on the central tasks at hand. After all, wouldn’t the indictments and trial speak for themselves, educating the public about the treasonous actions taken by high Obama officials? Isn’t that how our system of justice is supposed to function? I thought so, and so did many others.

But that was before we saw Sally Q. Yates, the corrupt Obama holdover former acting Attorney General who smeared General Mike Flynn and refused to enforce President Trump’s initial travel ban before the President unceremoniously fired her during the early weeks of his administration, testified today before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Yates’s testimony was such a case study in obfuscation, distraction, blame-shifting and outright fabrication – all of which will simply be parroted by a fawning news media – that it dawned on me today that the nation will indeed require a comprehensive report from Durham simply for the purpose of setting an official record and serving as a public guide for what is to come. Because otherwise, that official record will be dictated by the professional liars in the media and the political left.

Yates, for example, expressed her sincere disappointment that the FBI did not properly vet the Steele Dossier that became pretty much the sole basis for obtaining FISA warrants to allow the DOJ/FBI cabal to spy on the Trump Campaign and transition team. She threw then-FBI Director James Comey under the bus as being mainly responsible for this travesty, even though she personally signed two of what eventually became four FISA applications that used that false Dossier. She took no personal blame at all for simply rubber stamping what she was handed without asking probing questions or conducting the slightest due diligence.

During the same hearing today, Yates also claimed to have been personally unaware that the Steele Dossier had been paid for by the DNC and the Clinton Campaign, a preposterous notion that no thinking person really believes. She also claimed to have had no idea that her deputy, Bruce Ohr, spent months under her watch facilitating contacts between Christopher Steele and various officials inside the DOJ, the FBI and Congress. An even more preposterous notion.

Yates also hilariously claimed that George Papadopoulous was in fact an agent of the Russian government, a reprehensible allegation that has been proven false repeatedly by IG Horowitz and several other investigations. She also stated her steadfast belief that General Flynn lied to FBI Agents Peter Strzok and Joe Pientka during their entrapment interview, despite the now-revealed fact that both agents told their superiors that they did not believe Flynn had lied to them shortly after that interview took place.

The great intrinsic value in these Judiciary Committee hearings that are finally being convened by Chairman Lindsey Graham a year later than they should have been is that they will expose Yates and her fellow coup plotters for the despicable liars they all truly are, and do it all while they are under oath. That’s all great, but someone in a position of authority still needs to compile an official guide that ties together all the moving parts and exposes all the myriad lies these professional prevaricators will weave into their testimonies.

This is the most complex and dangerous scandal in U.S. history, and Americans deserve to have someone in authority lay it all out for them so that they can fully comprehend how dangerously close the Cabal came to overthrowing a duly-elected government by false means. Durham is presumably investigating all of this, and will know where all of these bodies are buried.

So yes, we will need a Durham Report after all, if only to serve as a sort of in-game program type of guide that will allow the audience to follow along as the indictments and trials [hopefully] finally start to take place.

Attorney General William Barr has twice promised we would see such a report before the end of summer. The summer ends on September 22.

Time is growing short.

That is all.

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.

Watch Trey Gowdy and Mark Meadows Discuss FBI/CIA Effort to Entrap Papadopoulous

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

A couple of Fox News interviews Sunday and Monday morning serve to emphasize how important it is for President Donald Trump to declassify documents thus far withheld by the Mueller Investigation and the FBI under its “sources and methods” catch-all used to hide up embarrassing evidence from the public. The evidence discussed in these clips is transcripts of tapes made of FBI/CIA efforts to entrap Trump campaign operative George Papadopoulous in 2016.

The first clip is of Trey Gowdy being interviewed Sunday morning by Maria Bartiromo.

Here are some of Gowdy’s key comments:

“If the bureau is going to send an informant in it’s going to be wired and if the bureau is monitoring telephone calls there’s a transcript of that. And some of us have been fortunate enough to know whether or not those transcripts exist. But they haven’t been made public.”

“I think one [transcript] in particular is going, it has the potential to actually persuade people. Very little on this Russia probe, I’m afraid, is going to persuade people who hate Trump or love Trump. But there is some information in these transcripts that I think has the potential to be a game changer, if it’s ever made public.”

“[Texas Congressman] John Ratcliffe is rightfully exercised over the obligations the government has to tell the whole truth to a court when you are speaking permission to spy or do surveillance on an American. And part of that includes the responsibility of providing exculpatory information or information that tends to show the person did not do something wrong.”

“If you have exculpatory information and you don’t share it with the court, that ain’t good. I’ve seen it, Johnny has seen it, I’d love for your viewers to see it.”

The second clip is from a Monday morning interview Congressman Mark Meadows conducted on Fox and Friends addressing the same topic. This one has closed captioning along with it, so you can read it while viewing with the sound off.

What these two interviews do is just emphasize what we already knew: That these documents and many more simply must be declassified if we are ever going to get to the truth of what happened during the months in which the Obama FBI/CIA cabal was spying on and attempting to entrap members of the Trump Campaign and Transition Team.

Meadows said he has talked with President Trump about declassifying the documents, and that the President is serious about doing it soon.

“I think the delay is over,” Meadows said. “I think the president is serious. I’ve spoken to him recently and I think declassification is right around the corner and hopefully the American people will be able to judge for themselves.”

We’ve heard that repeatedly for months now, without result. If the President really is going to declassify documents, he needs to stop talking about it and just get it done.

That is all.

SPOTLIGHT: Another Week of Major Spygate Revelations

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

This past week was the second straight during which multiple major new revelations about “Spygate” – the Obama Administration’s effort to fix the 2016 election and subsequent plot to execute a coup d’etat on a sitting POTUS – came to public light.  You can find last week’s review at this link. Here follows a review of what we learned during the course of this week.

First, Maria Bartiromo interviewed George Papadopoulous – one of the main targets of the FBI/CIA’s entrapment efforts against Trump officials – on her Sunday morning program, along with Devin Nunes. Here’s a clip of the full episode, in which Papadopoulous details multiple efforts by U.S. agencies to entrap him into some criminal act or admission, and in which Nunes details his suspicion that at least one spy deployed by the FBI/CIA also works as an operative for Russian intelligence.:

https://youtu.be/5UkRD0BRpkU

Next up, Attorney General William Barr acknowledged again his ongoing investigation into the real origins of the Obama spying operations, and how high the conspiracy went within the Obama Administration.:

Later on Wednesday, the reliable news-fakers at the New York Times did their best to set a favorable narrative to Spygate on behalf of the Deep State, but really only succeeded in confirming that it the FBI was spying on the Trump Campaign throughout 2016, using multiple operatives.:

I missed this when it was published on Friday, but National Review obtained a copy of the recent congressional testimony by FBI Deputy Assistant Director of Counterintelligence Jonathan Moffa, and it is extremely revelatory. Moffa’s testimony makes it crystal clear that the FBI was coordinating with the CIA during 2016, and he admits that  their spying operation ran multiple different operatives at Papadopoulous and other Trump Campaign officials in their entrapment efforts.  Amazing.:

It all becomes very convoluted and confusing, because the Obama-era bad actors had so many different angles going on targeting the Trump campaign throughout 2016, and really starting in late 2015. The guys over at the Conservative Treehouse have an outstanding, detailed explanation of how it all played out at this link. 

These two paragraphs from that piece sum up the bifurcated, coordinated effort between the CIA and FBI very succinctly:

The CIA track took place between March and July 2016, and consisted of using foreign intelligence allies in Italy, the U.K and Australia to create a background illusion of Russian involvement with the Trump campaign.  This operation was based on earlier -more innocuous- contacts from various countries, weaponized and redeployed in what everyone calls “spygate”.  This track successfully culminated in Operation Crossfire Hurricane.

The FBI track was domestic-centric, albeit sub-contracted to Fusion GPS and later a former British intelligence officer, and took place between April and October 2016; also to create the illusion of Russian involvement.  This operation is best known around the Steele Dossier and FISA warrant against U.S. person Carter Page.  The FBI track continued with the Mueller investigation into 2017, 2018 and 2019.

Read the whole piece and keep it bookmarked – it will provide a great reference point to go back to as things continue to publicly unfold in the coming weeks and months.

Watch Devin Nunes Discuss his Efforts to Expose Spygate

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

Good information here from a Hannity interview with Devin Nunes Friday evening.

Watch the clip here – a transcript will follow:

For those of you who still like to read, the transcript is below, but first the big takeaways.:

  • The Nunes letter Hannity references requests DOJ provide him with all documentation collected by the Mueller Witch Hunt related to longtime U.S. intelligence asset Joseph Mifsud.
  • Per Fox News, Nunes’ letter is also addressed to “Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Central Intelligence Agency Director Gina Haspel, National Security Agency Director Paul Nakasone and FBI Director Chris Wray. It asks them to hand over all information they have on Mifsud by May 10.”
  • Mifsud was one of the spies the FBI ran into the Trump Campaign during 2016 in its efforts to entrap George Papadopoulous and other Trump Campaign officials into committing some illegal admission or act.
  • Nunes knows already that Mifsud has also long been an asset for other western intelligence agencies, including those from Great Britain, Australia and Italy.
  • Nunes suspects that Mifsud also serves as an operative for the Russians, and believes the Mueller Witch Hunt likely collected documentation proving that’s the case.
  • As Nunes notes, if his suspicion about Mifsud is proven correct, it would be an enormous scandal for the FBI and U.S. intelligence agencies.

Just another piece of this highly-complex puzzle that could be about to fall into place.

======================================================================

[Here’s the transcript of the Hannity/Nunes clip. I have used the abbreviation “Papa” to avoid having to type Papadopoulous a dozen times.:]

Nunes: After the Mueller report came out, we said we were going to comb through it. One of the first things that came out was that they used a Guardian news report to claim that the Link campus was a place where Mifsud had worked. What they failed to say in that same report was that Mifsud was linked to Italian intelligence services.

So, if you’re Mueller, you don’t get to report the parts that you want to report in your story, you have to put the entire piece before the American people. He didn’t do that, so we’re calling him out. This is not how investigations are supposed to be run.

When you look into Mifsud closer, you realize he is connected with all kinds of intelligence agencies, including our own FBI. And in that letter, Sean, you’ll see there’s pictures with FBI agents at the Link campus where Professor Mifsud teaches.

So, we asked the question – and I’ll just sum it up like this – we want to know every document that these agencies have related to Mifsud. Because if he is in fact a Russian agent, this would be one of the biggest intelligence scandals not just for our agencies, but also for the Italians and the Brits and others. Because if Mifsud is a Russian agent he would know all kinds of our intelligence agents throughout the globe.

So we asked those questions, we want those documents and we are giving them a week.

Hannity: You said that this professor has all these connections to all these western intelligence agencies, and yeah, Mueller implies that he was a Russian agent, but it may be much deeper is how I’m seeing this. My question to you is do you believe that in an effort to illegally spy on the American people that it’s possible that some at the top of our intel community under Obama/Biden may have outsourced things that were illegal for them to do Americans, so that they could have our allies do the spying for them. Let me give you an example: Great Britain or Australia or maybe Italy – am I over the target here?

Nunes: I think you are, and one of the things we point out in the letter is very specific: Because the FBI, or I should say the Mueller group, claims that Papadopoulous misled them, and they were not allowed to get to Prof. Mifsud in time in order to interview him. These are the claims they make against Papa when they sentence him to prison.

What we found it, well wait a second, if this is really what happened, and if you backtrack all of this they’re basically making the claim that Mifsud is the guy who said he had emails or other information about the emails being the hands of the Russian government. If that is in fact true, they couldn’t talk to Mifsud until supposedly January, February of 2017. Well, how do they know to ask Papa all throughout 2016 whether or not he’s seen the Russian emails, or whether he knows about the Russian emails?

The only way that’s possible is that had to come from Mifsud some way, somehow.

Now, who Mifsud’s really working for I don’t know, but like everything we do, Sean, we have to be slow and patient because we have to see what is the real relationship between Mifsud and our FBI, Mifsud and our State Department?

Hannity: You specifically talk about omissions in the Mueller report and you also explain how Papa met Mifsud. We’re about to have Papa and his wife on, and the story that we now know is true – that even the NY Times has now admitted this week, the FBI was using young, pretty, flirtatious women right out of a James Bond novel, along with Stefan Halper, along with Mifsud, to set Papa up.  Is there anything I’m saying that’s wrong, and how deep did it go?

Nunes: I said this a year ago – and I and others got mocked – I’m not interested in if the Trump Campaign was spied on. That happened. That’s a fact.

I want to know how many spies, informants, whatever you want to call them, were run into the Trump Campaign.

So, look, the Times story now says 2, that’s up from 1, my guess is it’s a lot more than that. If you listen to what AG Barr said yesterday, as sophisticated as this operation was, there had to be a lot more people, sophisticated people that were involved in this operation from our own FBI.

So I still want to know how many spies were run into the Trump Campaign. I still don’t know, but we’re gonna get the answer, and we’re gonna get it out to the American people.

===================================================================

Devin Nunes is an American hero.

The New York Times Continues Providing Cover for the Deep State

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

Old New York Times Slogan: All the news that’s fit to print.

New New York Times Slogan: All the leaks that support the Deep State Narrative.

This has become so laughably predictable that you can’t even take it seriously anymore. Thursday afternoon, the news fakers at the New York Times published a piece – of course based solely on leaks from some deep state Obama holdover within the FBI – that basically admits that the FBI was doing what William Barr keeps telling us it was doing back in 2016, which was: SPYING on the Trump Campaign, and attempting to entrap its people into the commission of some sort of crime.

That’s what it was. It was a counterintelligence operation run out of the FBI, an operation that had been referred to the FBI and authorized by then-CIA Director John Brennan. Furthermore, it was a counterintelligence operation run by the FBI, and about which then-President of the United States Barack Obama was fully aware, since he was given weekly briefings about all counterintelligence operations run by the FBI.

The New York Times just now seems to be catching up on all of this stuff that we’ve all known about for well over a year now. Funny how that works.

Of course, the reason why this particular fake newspaper is publishing this particular story at this particular time is so that it can put its particular spin on it at the behest of the Obama-leftover skunks and snakes who still infest the FBI and DOJ. The reason why this particular story – about the FBI illegally spying on the presidential campaign of the opposition party and trying to entrap its people on foreign soil – at this particular time is because everyone now knows that a) it has become one of the issues DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz is investigating, and b) the Attorney General himself has let it be known that he also has U.S. attorney staff looking into it.

In other words, the Deep State and its mouth organs in the fake news media, led by the New York Times, are panicking and desperately trying to set and sanitize the public narrative in advance of those investigations. The Times, of course, is very careful not to call the FBI’s activities “spying”, portraying the spying operation as one that “shows the level of alarm inside the F.B.I. during a frantic period when the bureau was trying to determine the scope of Russia’s attempts to disrupt the 2016 election”.

Rrrrrriiiiiigggghhhhht. If the FBI were indeed so “alarmed” about efforts by those nasty ol’ Russians to make contacts with members of the Trump campaign, why didn’t the FBI make an appointment to meet with the candidate himself, along with his senior staff, and warn them about those concerns? This simple action that would have given these U.S. citizens a head’s up was apparently beyond the ken of these intrepid law enforcement heroes; thus, they took Brennan’s advice and mounted a highly complex, secret operation that was clearly designed to entrap unsuspecting members of Trump’s team, like George Papadopoulous, who is the subject of this particular Times cover job for the Deep State.

The particular entrapment op in question on this particular Times piece is an episode in which longtime CIA operative Stefan Halper deployed a honey pot code named (I kid you not) Azra Turk to see if she could get Papadopolous to make any incriminating admissions over drinks at a London bar.

Here’s the narrative the Times/FBI skunks put on this story:

The woman had set up the meeting to discuss foreign policy issues. But she was actually a government investigator posing as a research assistant, according to people familiar with the operation. The F.B.I. sent her to London as part of the counterintelligence inquiry opened that summer to better understand the Trump campaign’s links to Russia.

The American government’s affiliation with the woman, who said her name was Azra Turk, is one previously unreported detail of an operation that has become a political flash point in the face of accusations by President Trump and his allies that American law enforcement and intelligence officials spied on his campaign to undermine his electoral chances. Last year, he called it “Spygate.”

So, this CIA operative working for another CIA operative trying to entrap a U.S. citizen on foreign soil is portrayed as a “government investigator posing as a research assistant.” And don’t you love the spin the writers put on the spying operation, that it “has become a political flash point in the face of accusations by President Trump” that he was – guess what? – being SPIED on.  And yes, he did call it “Spygate” – because he was being SPIED on.

My goodness. How do these people sleep at night, knowing that they are nothing mouthpieces for the worst elements of our society?

Disgusting hacks.

That is all.
