Developing: Obama CIA Chief John Brennan Made Secret Visit to Russia Around Same Time as Fusion GPS Produced anti-Trump Memos

Fri, 04/20/2018 - 07:10

Well isn’t this interesting?

Obama CIA Chief John Brenna, who is fiercely anti-Trump, made a secret visit to Moscow in March 2016.

Weeks later in June Christopher Steele with Fusion GPS, who was hired indirectly by Hillary Clinton, produced his first anti-Trump memo.
Via The Donald Reddit:

According to a report earlier this month former Senate Minority leader Harry Reid believed Brennan was using him in order to publicize pretend links between Trump campaign associates and the Russian government.

The Russian papers reported on the visit at the time.

The Moscow Times reported on the trip on March 28,2016:

John Brennan, the director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), made a secret visit to Moscow in March, according to Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Oleg Syromolotov. The visit, he said, had nothing to do with Russia’s decision two weeks ago to begin withdrawing from Syria.

“It’s no secret that Brennan was here,” Syromolotov was quoted by the Interfax news agency as saying Monday. “But he didn’t visit the Foreign Ministry. I know for sure that he met with the Federal Security Service (the successor agency to the Soviet KGB), and someone else.”

It wasn’t clear why Brennan visited Moscow, but the trip appears to have coincided with President Vladimir Putin’s surprise March 14 announcement that Russia’s combat operation in Syria was ending, and Moscow would soon withdraw a portion of its forces from the country after conducting 167 air strikes.

Today John Brennan is one of the most vocal Trump critics.
Interesting.

Your kakistocracy is collapsing after its lamentable journey. As the greatest Nation history has known, we have the opportunity to emerge from this nightmare stronger & more committed to ensuring a better life for all Americans, including those you have so tragically deceived. https://t.co/eC6LATH2Gd

NY Governor Cuomo: I’m an Undocumented Immigrant (VIDEO)

Fri, 04/20/2018 - 06:30

Where is ICE when you need them?

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) told supporters this week that he is an undocumented immigrant.

Cuomo: I’m an Italian-American, I came from poor Italian-Americans who came here. You know what they called Italian-Americans back in the day? They called them wops. You know what wop stood for? Without papers. I’m undocumented.

Andrew Cuomo was born in New York City on December 6, 1957.
Andrew’s father Mario Cuomo was governor of New York state for three terms.

Obviously, Andrew is hoping to secure the illegal vote in New York state.

MO GOP Attorney General Accuses GOP Governor Greitens of Election Violations

Tue, 04/17/2018 - 17:23

Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley announced on Tuesday his office found criminal wrongdoing by Republican Governor Eric Greitens and will pass the information along to the corrupt St. Louis Circuit Attorney’s Office.

Missouri A.G. Josh Hawley announced that his office has uncovered potential criminal wrongdoing by Gov. Eric Greitens.

Hawley’s office found evidence that Greitens allegedly obtained and transmitted his charity’s donor list for political fundraising. https://t.co/VQ1Iy2GAeV

— Kyle Griffin (@kylegriffin1) April 17, 2018

Hawley will likely be the GOP candidate to take on unpopular Senator Claire McCaskill in Missouri in November.

St. Louis Circuit Attorney was already investigating Greitens for an affair he had before running for office.

The corrupt Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner withheld information in the ongoing case and is accused of ethical violations.
Gardner is a far left activist who was supported by George Soros in her local race.

FOX2 Now reported:

Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley says his office has evidence of criminal wrongdoing by Governor Eric Greitens regarding his involvement with the charity The Mission Continues.

The attorney general’s office had been investigating possible violations of the state’s consumer protection and charitable registration and reporting laws.

“In the course of this investigation, we have uncovered evidence of wrongdoing that goes beyond Missouri’s charity laws,” Hawley said. “To be specific, within the past several days, we have obtained evidence of potential criminal violations…these potentially criminal acts were committed by Governor Eric Greitens.”

Hawley said it appears Greitens used the donor list from The Mission Continues to solicit for campaign donations in his gubernatorial run — a felony. The attorney general said the state’s laws on impeachment mean the governor could be removed from office if he’s found to have participated in criminal acts.

At this point it will be very difficult for the Republican governor to recover and may be asked to leave office.

With Syrian Strike President Trump Encourages Russia to Join “Civilized Nations as a Force for Stability and Peace”

Sat, 04/14/2018 - 12:51

Guest post by Joe Hoft

President Trump gave a speech last night on American TV announcing strikes on Syria by the US, Britain and France. The most significant point in his speech may be the message he sent a directly to Russia.

The President announced the strike at about the same time it was launched.

The NYT printed the entire speech.  Some of the more significant remarks the President gave were very powerful and directed towards Russia –

I also have a message tonight for the two governments most responsible for supporting, equipping and financing the criminal Assad regime.

To Iran and to Russia, I ask: What kind of a nation wants to be associated with the mass murder of innocent men, women and children? The nations of the world can be judged by the friends they keep.

No nation can succeed in the long run by promoting rogue states, brutal tyrants and murderous dictators. In 2013, President Putin and his government promised the world that they would guarantee the elimination of Syria’s chemical weapons. Assad’s recent attack and today’s response are the direct result of Russia’s failure to keep that promise.

Russia must decide if it will continue down this dark path or if it will join with civilized nations as a force for stability and peace. Hopefully, someday we’ll get along with Russia and maybe even Iran, but maybe not.

I will say this, the United States has a lot to offer with the greatest and most powerful economy in the history of the world.

The President made this offer to Russia in a similar manner in which the US approached China with North Korea.  As a result of those comments and other actions, North Korea has asked to sit down with the President and is even suggesting  it is willing give up its nuclear weapons.

President Trump virtually eliminated radical evil ISIS in the Middle East in less than a year.  He has North Korea offering to come to the table and discuss its nuclear weapons.  If he can prevent gas attacks in Syria and get Russia to change its policies to stop supporting rogue states, he will have accomplished the impossible.

Michael Savage Calls U.S. Strike On Syria “Greatest Disaster Of The Trump Presidency” (VIDEO)

Michael Savage took to Periscope amid U.S.-led airstrikes on Syria. The radio legend called the military operation “the greatest disaster of the Trump presidency.”

Partial transcript of Savage’s periscope follows:

“I know you are all pouring in and you want to know my opinion. Do I have to tell you what my opinion is? My opinion is very clear. This is the greatest disaster of the Trump presidency and it’s purely ‘Wag the Dog.’ There was no reason for this. None whatsoever. As a matter of fact, just yesterday General Mattis said there was no evidence Syria had done it. All of a sudden they are launching Tomahawk missiles. This is a disaster!”

Before broadcasting on Periscope, Savage tweeted, “We lost. War machine bombs syria. No evidence Assad did it. Sad warmongers hijacking our nation.”

Activists Dress Up As ISIS, Troll Emir of Qatar With #ISISThanksQatar Hashtag

Sat, 04/14/2018 - 00:37

As the emir of Qatar visited Washington, DC, meeting with the president who formerly accused the nation of historically funding terror at a “high level,” activists gathered outside the Embassy of Qatar dressed like ISIS.

During Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani’s visit with President Donald Trump, the Qatari emir claimed that the nation now has a “zero tolerance” policy on terror.

“You’ve now become a very big advocate, and we appreciate it,” Trump told Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani. “A lot of countries were funding terrorism and we’re stopping it. It’s getting stopped and fast — very important.”

In November, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain cut ties with Qatar and named 59 people and several charities linked to the nation that are on a terrorist list.

Qatar was accused of backing al-Qaida and ISIS ideology and helped to prop up the militant groups. They also provided financial assistance to Egypt when the Muslim Brotherhood was in power.

“I want to make something very clear, Mr. President,” the Qatari emir said during the meeting. “We do not and we will not tolerate with people who fund terrorism. We’ve been cooperating with the United States of America to stop funding terrorism around the region.”

The Trump administration has recently told Congress that they plan to approve a deal to sell Qatar $300 million in “Advanced Precision Kill Weapon Systems,” including 5,000 high-explosive warheads and the same number of rocket motors, Fox News reports.

McCabe Lawyer Hints at Defamation Suit Against Trump in Statement Following Release of IG Report “Stay Tuned”

Fri, 04/13/2018 - 23:03

The highly-anticipated Inspector General report on the firing of former Deputy Director of the FBI Andrew McCabe was released Friday afternoon.

The report is very damning; McCabe lied under oath several times.

President Trump torched McCabe in a tweet after the IG report was released.

“He LIED!” Trump said of McCabe then called the Deep State operatives pushing the false Russian collusion investigation a “den of thieves and lowlifes.”

 

Andrew McCabe’s counsel, Michael Bromwich lashed out at Trump and his senior associates Friday afternoon in a statement following the release of the IG report.

Michael Bromwich linked to his official statement and tweeted: “The IG report is out: Andy McCabe’s reward for 21 years devoted service was 23 days worth of “due process.” The AG terminated him 26 hours short of his retirement on very shaky facts, depriving him of his retirement benefits. A disgrace.”

Attorney Gregg Jarrett Warns “Things Will End Badly For Comey” After Reading Former FBI Chief’s New Book

Fri, 04/13/2018 - 22:14

Fox News Legal Analyst Gregg Jarrett warned “things will end badly for Comey” after reading the former FBI Director’s memoir “A Higher Loyalty.”

Attorney Gregg Jarrett stated he obtained a copy of Comey’s new book in advance of the April 17 release date.

By the time Jarrett was halfway through the book, he said there is nothing that even resembles the truth in Comey’s writing.

I obtained a copy of Comey’s book. I’m half way through, but so far there is nothing resembling the truth. I’ll keep searching for something other than self-adoration and puffery. So far, there is no demonstrable truth. Which puts a lie to the title of the book.

— Gregg Jarrett (@GreggJarrett) April 13, 2018

After Jarrett finished reading Comey’s book he shredded the former FBI Director for writing a book of fiction then warned “things will end badly for Comey” because “he stole government documents.”

I’ve finished reading Comey’ book. It’s an easy and superficial read. I saw nothing that was true. I can only conclude that Comey’s version of events is fantasy. It is fiction. Things will end badly for Comey. He stole government documents.

— Gregg Jarrett (@GreggJarrett) April 13, 2018

Jarrett then slammed former intel Chief James Clapper for defending Comey. “Clapper should be in prison for perjury,” Jarrett said.

Clapper was just on CNN defending Comey. This from a proven liar. Clapper should be in prison for perjury. Obama protected him.

— Gregg Jarrett (@GreggJarrett) April 13, 2018

Fired FBI Director and attention whore, James Comey, is causing quite a stir with his new memoir “A Higher Loyalty,” set to hit shelves April 17.

In his new book, Comey personally attacks Trump and appears to be using information from his classified memos.

Comey penned 7 memos stemming from 9 conversations he had with Trump. The FBI deemed the memos to be government documents so Comey was not allowed to take the memos with him after he was fired.

Although 4 out of 7 of the memos contained classified information, experts argue all of Comey’s memos are considered classified.

Comey should not be on a book tour, he should be prosecuted and put in prison.

Comey’s interview with sycophant George Stephanopoulos airs Sunday evening at 10 PM EST on ABC.

Byron York: the public needs to know. There is too much secrecy out. I was writing today about the Comey memos. The fired FBI director is planning his big book selling extravaganza to start this weekend. And these memos that Comey wrote are being treated like the highest state secrets inside the Justice Department. Members of the Oversight Committees have asked to see them. They’ve only been allowed to be seen by one or two people. There’s an FBI minder in the room all the time, no copies are allowed, no note taking is allowed. Most of these things are NOT EVEN CLASSIFIED!

As The Gateway Pundit reported, Rosenstein is prepared to be terminated from the Justice Department.

Exclusive: Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is prepared for President Trump to fire him, three sources tell @JuliaEAinsley pic.twitter.com/HLv4YcN0wI

— MSNBC (@MSNBC) April 13, 2018

In those conversations, he has repeated the phrase, “Here I stand,” a reference to Martin Luther’s famous quote, “Here I stand, I can do no other.” Coincidentally, former FBI Director James Comey, whom Rosenstein fired, repeated the same phrase to President George W. Bush in a conversation that has been widely reported and that Comey describes in his forthcoming book.

One source who spoke to Rosenstein said he seemed fully aware he may soon lose his job and was at peace with the possibility, confident he had done his job with integrity.

Rosenstein has said in recent private conversations that history will prove he did the right thing by firing Comey in May 2017, claiming that the American people do not have all the facts about what led to his decision to write the memo that led to Comey’s dismissal, the sources said.

One source told The Wall Street Journal that Rosenstein’s firing is “a matter of when, not if.”

The report comes after Trump and Rosenstein met for what the White House described as ‘routine Department business.’

Former Ecuadorian President Rafael Correa: Assange’s Days in Ecuadorian Embassy Are Numbered

Fri, 04/13/2018 - 20:41

It has been over two weeks since the Ecuadorian government silenced award-winning WikiLeaks publisher Julian Assange, and former President Rafael Correa is now warning that his days inside the embassy are numbered.

According to a report from ABC International, Correa told reporters during a meeting with the media at the International Press Club of Madrid that current Ecuadorian President Lenin Moreno is caving to pressure from the United States.

Correa claimed that at the first sign of pressure from the United States, Lenin will throw the heroic publisher out of the embassy where he was granted political asylum in 2012.

Assange has been residing at the embassy for nearly six years, over concerns that the UK government will arrest him and extradite him to the US for the apparent crime of committing journalism.

Ecuador attempted to give Assange diplomatic status last year after making him an official citizen, but the UK rejected it.

On the same day that Correa shared his beliefs about Assange’s future, the Gateway Pundit published an open letter from over 50 prominent members of the entertainment industry, media and politics calling for Assange’s freedom.

Approximately 60,000 people from all across the globe have also signed a petition urging Ecuador to end Assange’s isolation.

In 2015, Google handed over all of investigations editor Sarah Harrison, Section Editor Joseph Farrell and senior journalist and spokesperson Kristinn Hrafnsson’s emails and metadata to the United States government on the back of alleged ‘conspiracy’ and ‘espionage’ warrants.

The alleged offenses in the warrants included espionage: 18 U.S.C. § 793(d), conspiracy to commit espionage: 18 U.S.C. § 793(g), the theft or conversion of property belonging to the United States government: 18 U.S.C. § 641, violation of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act: 18 U.S.C. § 1030, and (general) conspiracy. These offenses alone carry a sentence of up to a total of 45 years of imprisonment, and this was before the DNC leaks.

As we have previously reported, President Donald Trump’s attorneys have been quietly making a case in defense of WikiLeaks throughout legal filings responding to a lawsuit filed by Democrat Party donors who allege that the campaign and former advisor Roger Stone conspired with Russians to publish the leaked Democratic National Committee emails.

Buried within hundreds of pages of case filings, in a motion filed in October, lawyer Michael A. Carvin argued that under section 230 of the Communications Decency Act (47 U.S.C. § 230), “a website that provides a forum where ‘third parties can post information’ is not liable for the third party’s posted information.”

“That is so even when even when the website performs ‘editorial functions’ ‘such as deciding whether to publish,’” the filing contends. “Since WikiLeaks provided a forum for a third party (the unnamed ‘Russian actors’) to publish content developed by that third party (the hacked emails), it cannot be held liable for the publication.”

In a later filing, which we have also previously reported on, Carvin argued that WikiLeaks is protected under the Bartnicki First Amendment Test.

The motion, filed on December 29, argued that a defendant may not be held liable for a disclosure of stolen information if the disclosure deals with “a matter of public concern” and provided that the speaker was not “involved” in the theft.

In 2016, after 16 months of investigation, the United Nations Working Group on Arbitrary Detention (UNWGAD) concluded that Julian Assange is the victim of arbitrary detention. Not only did the group made up of lawyers and human rights professionals release an opinion that Assange should be released, they reported that he should be compensated by the governments of Sweden and the United Kingdom for “deprivation of liberty.”
