Andrew McCabe Fallout

Sen. Angus King says Andrew McCabe firing seems like act of “vengeance”

John Brennan: U.S. will send him to ‘dustbin of history’

Sen. Marco Rubio criticized the way Andrew McCabe was fired.

“I don’t like the way it happened. He should’ve been allowed to finish through the weekend,”… “We need to be very careful about taking these very important entities and smearing everybody in them with a broad stroke.”

Andrew McCabe should have been fired months ago. He misled investigators and lied about it. The FBI’s internal affairs unit even recommended his dismissal, which is why he is gone now. McCabe was corrupt.

The FBI itself asked that McCabe be fired, and for many good reasons …

Andrew McCabe‘s wife received $700,000 from democrats, while Peter Strzok – who changed Comey’s “grossly negligent” statement – enacted a coup against President Trump & the hardened democrats were paying an ex-MI6 Moscow field agent to interfere in our elections.

Andrew McCabe was part of the FBI leadership team that made some of the most destructive decisions regarding critical CI and law enforcement cases in modern US history. His termination is just the beginning of the justice train coming down the tracks.

Case 1:18-cr-00032-DLF


“The Kremlin trolls” told about themselves: where are they sitting and what they are doing

the Limited Liability Company Internet Research, unofficially nicknamed by its employees, the so-called “Kremlin trolls”, “the Ministry of Truth” .

“Trust Ministry”  approximately 400 people, change one at a time for 12 hours, sit around the computer around the clock and write in blogs – mostly in “Live Journal” or “VKontakte”. There are several departments. In one they are engaged in the blogosphere, in another they are preparing TK – technical tasks, in the third one – they comment on the news in Russian and foreign media , in the fourth – mount photos in the photoshop, forcing, say, heads of Navalny and Obama to the bodies of animals, and so on.

The hierarchical structure, which is being built in the agency Internet Research, resembles a state vertical: the lower classes are not only not allowed to the bosses, but even do not know it in the face, they know only their immediate small boss, the so-called Timelider.
Anton: “There is, let’s assume, a cabinet. There are several people in it. They have a so-called Timlider, this is their little boss. He obeys the Chief of the Changelog, that is, the boss who is responsible for several offices at once. Timlider speaks only to him. And his boss, Chief of Changes, already communicates with the head of the department. And all employees were immediately told that all matters are solved by the Timberlider, and in no case can I contact a senior boss. I have never heard of a superior boss. He appeared two times, and then nobody saw him anymore. “

Statements regarding the release of Nunes’ Memo from Nancy Pelosi and John McCain

Feb 02 2018

Washington, D.C. ­– U.S. Senator John McCain (R-AZ), Chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, released the following statement on partisan attacks on the FBI and Department of Justice:

“In 2016, the Russian government engaged in an elaborate plot to interfere in an American election and undermine our democracy. Russia employed the same tactics it has used to influence elections around the world, from France and Germany to Ukraine, Montenegro, and beyond. Putin’s regime launched cyberattacks and spread disinformation with the goal of sowing chaos and weakening faith in our institutions. And while we have no evidence that these efforts affected the outcome of our election, I fear they succeeded in fueling political discord and dividing us from one another.

“The latest attacks on the FBI and Department of Justice serve no American interests – no party’s, no president’s, only Putin’s. The American people deserve to know all of the facts surrounding Russia’s ongoing efforts to subvert our democracy, which is why Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation must proceed unimpeded. Our nation’s elected officials, including the president, must stop looking at this investigation through the warped lens of politics and manufacturing partisan sideshows. If we continue to undermine our own rule of law, we are doing Putin’s job for him.”

HPSCI Memo Released

Nunes Statement on Release of HPSCI Memo

Washington, February 2, 2018

The House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence today made public a committee memo with information on abuses of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. Chairman Nunes issued the following statement:

“The Committee has discovered serious violations of the public trust, and the American people have a right to know when officials in crucial institutions are abusing their authority for political purposes. Our intelligence and law enforcement agencies exist to defend the American people, not to be exploited to target one group on behalf of another. It is my hope that the Committee’s actions will shine a light on this alarming series of events so we can make reforms that allow the American people to have full faith and confidence in their governing institutions.”

The memo is available here and here.

Schiff’s counter memo

Neither the FBI nor the Justice Department have been allowed to see the four-page memo by Chairman Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif.  Only select lawmakers have been granted permission by Nunes to view it in the House’s safe space. As of this week, roughly 200 lawmakers have seen the memo or been briefed on its contacts.

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) announced House Intelligence Committee Democrats will release a counter-memo “exposing the misleading character of the Republicans’ document so that members of the House are not left with an erroneous impression of the dedicated professionals at the FBI and DOJ.”

Assistant Attorney General Stephen E. Boyd wrote that it would be “extraordinarily reckless” for the committee to release the memo without first giving the Justice Department and the FBI “the opportunity to review the [GOP] memorandum”

The same people suspected of criminal activities should not determine if the Memo can be released.  What a circus!

FISA memo

The Obama Administration’s ‘Brazen Plot To Exonerate Hillary Clinton’ Starting To Seep Out

watch?v=aa95jLxZfc4 by Tea Partier Published on Jan 21, 2018

A former federal prosecutor says the truth is starting to seep out about the Obama Administration’s “brazen plot to exonerate Hillary Clinton” and “frame an incoming president with a false Russian conspiracy,” according to an exclusive interview with The Daily Caller News Foundation. Joe diGenova, a former federal prosecutor, connects the dots on former Obama administration Justice Department and FBI officials who may have “violated the law, perhaps committed crimes” to politicize law enforcement and surveillance against political opponents. He says former FBI Director James Comey conducted a fake criminal investigation of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as they “followed none of the regular rules, gave her every break in the book, immunized all kinds of people, allowed the destruction of evidence, with no grand jury, no subpoenas, no search warrants. That’s not an investigation. That’s a Potemkin village. It’s a farce.”

DiGenova condemned the FBI for working so closely with the controversial Fusion GPS, a political hit squad paid by the DNC and Clinton campaign to create and spread the discredited Steele dossier about President Donald Trump. Without a justifiable law enforcement or national security reason, he says, the FBI “created false facts so that they could get surveillance warrants. Those are all crimes.” He adds, using official FISA-702 “queries” and surveillance was done “to create a false case against a candidate, and then a president.” In this highly detailed video interview, he holds up an unreported April 2017 99-page FISA court opinion that “describes systematic and on-going violations of the law [by the FBI and their contractors using unauthorized disclosures of raw intelligence on Americans]. This is stunning stuff.” DiGenova thinks Fusion GPS and Crowdstrike, the DNC’s private security firm, were among the redacted contractors of the FBI.

House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes, who knows who the redacted contractors were, may release more information. Was Fusion GPS pitching and funding journalists to run smear and propaganda campaigns for the Democrats? DiGenova says journalists were definitely paid by Fusion GPS. If it is true, he says, “it’s the complete antithesis of American journalism and the first amendment.” — “Law enforcement is being corrupted and media is being bought,” portends badly he says. Noting the elite media’s supposed outrage about governmental power and institutions during Watergate, diGenova says “the only thing the American journalism community seems to care about now is destroying Donald Trump.”

In the interview, diGenova discusses the heroism of NSA Admiral Mike Rogers who briefed Trump when he was president-elect, on Nov. 17, 2016 about the controversial governmental surveillance. This resulted, he says, in Trump’s presidential transition being moving out of Trump Tower to Bedminster, N.J., until it could be debugged. The litigator also discusses the Uranium One scandal, the “tainted” Mueller special counsel investigation and the heroism of Nunes, who is under intense pressure from a united Democrat front. DiGenova has no doubt that if Democrats gain control in November, there will be an effort to impeachTrump. The Democrats are trying to delay any efforts by Republicans to find the truth. “It’s important for the House to complete its work now,” he says.

While this is a damning memo, this is not THE MEMO Schiff and Feinstein are lamenting about today to Twitter and Facebook

The Russian Bot talking point has infected WaPo, The Hill, Reuters, CNBC, Newsmax …

here is the link to the PDF file provided by the Department of National Intelligence. This Report was released in April of 2017. 

This a file:

The report was a ruling on the results of an investigation or audit into FISA searches made by Obama’s FBI and DOJ during Obama’s time in office.

The report shows Obama’s FBI and DOJ participated in widespread criminal searches and criminal sharing of data with non authorized entities outside of government.

On April 26, 2017, an unsealed FISA Court Ruling unveiled a number of criminal activities that Barack Obama’s FBI and DOJ participated in during his time in office. The report to date received little attention. Now interest is brewing due to the recent actions of Congress and the report that is expected to be released in the upcoming weeks.
