QOTD: "Nancy Pelosi was apparently advised by leftwing Harvard law professor Lawrence Tribe to delay sending the impeachment to the Senate. So she’s unilaterally sitting on the impeachment. This is another brazen unconstitutional act.

Here’s what Mitch McConnell and the Senate Republicans must do in response: The Senate has the sole power under the Constitution to adjudicate an impeachment. Therefore, Pelosi is attempting to obstruct the Senate’s power to act on its constitutional authority.

McConnell should immediately put an end to this and declare the impeachment null and void as the speaker has failed to complete the impeachment process by timely sending it to the Senate for adjudication. McConnell has no less authority to unilaterally make such a decision than Pelosi does to withhold the administrative notification of an impeachment to the Senate either indefinitely or with conditions. Her effort to cripple the presidency and blackmail the Senate must be defeated." --Mark Levin

DEVIN NUNES ON THE FISA COURT: Shut It Down. Shut It All Down.

DougRoss - Thu, 12/19/2019 - 00:47
By Debra Heine

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) is ringing alarm bells about the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court [FISC], saying that it is culpable, along with the FBI, for the improper wiretapping of former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page, and needs to be dismantled.

Nunes, the ranking Republican member on the House Intelligence Committee, joined Fox News’ Martha MacCallum Tuesday evening to discuss the FISA court’s tardy rebuke of the FBI’s handling of its surveillance-application process, and for the second time this week, he called for the secret court to be shut down.

In a four page order (PDF) Tuesday, the court’s presiding judge Rosemary M. Collyer gave the bureau until Jan. 10 to come up with solutions, a week after Justice Department Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz issued his scathing report detailing the FBI and DOJ’s misconduct during the Trump–Russia investigation.

“The FBI’s handling of the Carter Page applications, as portrayed in the [Office of Inspector General] report, was antithetical to the heightened duty of candor described above,” Collyer wrote. “The frequency with which representations made by FBI personnel turned out to be unsupported or contradicted by information in their possession, and with which they withheld information detrimental to their case, calls into question whether information contained in other FBI applications is reliable.”

Tuesday night, Nunes argued that it is somewhat disingenuous for Collyer to claim today that she has concerns about fraud upon the court when the House Intelligence Committee notified the court of the substantial errors almost two years ago.

“I’m glad to see the FISC court come out and make a statement but your viewers need to know that the FISC court is also culpable in this madness, and I say that because we sent them two letters—very specific letters,” Nunes told MacCallum.

The California congressman explained that Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee sent Collyer the first letter in February of 2018, informing the court “of very serious matters” that they had found in their investigation. He said the court did absolutely nothing about it. The second letter, he said, was sent in the summer of 2018 after the House GOP found out about the exculpatory evidence the FBI had left off of their FISA applications.

“The point here Martha is the court knew about all of this,” Nunes said. “I’m glad they’ve acted, I’m glad they said something, but the court needs to be ended,” he argued.

The California Republican voiced concern that neither the FBI and FISA judges can be trusted with powerful surveillance powers on Sunday as well, telling Fox News host Maria Bartiromo that the FISA court is in “tremendous jeopardy.”

“We cannot support the FISA court right now,” he said flatly. “The judges are refusing to take action against these dirty cops and dirty lawyers who did this.”

Nunes pointed out that the FISA court is a secret court that can target innocent people like Carter Page who have no recourse. “Look, the American people at the end of the day … we’re not going to give up our liberty in order to have some secret court operate to spy on political campaigns,” he said.

Unfortunately, Nunes noted, the American media helped the government cover up its gross misconduct. “In order to get back to normalcy in this country, we have to have a free and fair press, but we don’t have that today,” he lamented.

When asked by MacCallum whether he believes that the FISA court really needs to be eliminated, Nunes replied, “I’m not going to speak in absolutes, but I will say that the way that the court’s conducted themselves is totally inappropriate. They ignored clear evidence that we presented to them.”

Nunes stressed that the damning information was not yet available to the general public, but the court had it “and did nothing about it.”

According to Nunes, the court was not being entirely truthful when it claimed in the letter that it had just found out about the FBI’s misconduct because he had already tipped them off to the problems.

He said the FISA court’s performance was so bad, “Congress has no choice than to have to go in and fix this process.”

GENIUS: Peter Strzok and the Coup Crew Didn't Know Christopher Steele was Working for a Russian

DougRoss - Sat, 12/14/2019 - 02:21
By Chuck Ross, Daily Caller News Foundation
  • FBI agents who investigated the Trump campaign’s possible ties to Russia did not know at the time that dossier author Christopher Steele was working for a Russian oligarch.
  • FBI and Justice Department officials told the DOJ inspector general that the information was significant to Crossfire Hurricane, the name of the Trump-Russia probe.
  • Steele worked for lawyers for Oleg Deripaska, a billionaire aluminum magnate.
  • Stuart Evans, a DOJ attorney, told the IG that government officials would have “wanted to dive into” the Steele-Deripaska links had they known about it during the investigation. 

The FBI’s Crossfire Hurricane team turned over every rock to find out whether members of the Trump campaign were working with Russians in 2016, but failed to discover that Christopher Steele, the FBI’s primary source for claims of a Trump-Russia conspiracy, was himself working for a Russian oligarch, according to the Justice Department inspector general’s report.

FBI and Justice Department officials told the inspector general (IG) that investigators would have wanted to assess Steele’s link to the oligarch, Oleg Deripaska, in order to determine if it had an impact on Steele’s dossier.

Steele told the IG that he worked for attorneys for the oligarch, who is not identified by name in the report, but appears to be Deripaska, an aluminum magnate with close ties to Vladimir Putin. Steele denied having a relationship with Deripaska, and said he’s only met the billionaire one time.

Steele did not describe the nature of his work for Deripaska, but the founders of Fusion GPS, the firm that hired Steele, said in a book published last month that Steele had in turn hired them in 2016 to investigate former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort.

Deripaska’s lawyers had hired Steele to track down millions of dollars that the oligarch believed Manafort had stolen. “Weeks before Trump tapped Manafort to run his campaign, Christopher Steele had hired Fusion for help investigating Manafort,” the Fusion founders wrote in their book, “Crime in Progress.”

“The matter had nothing to do with politics and was a typical commercial assignment.”

Simpson and Fritsch said they did not ask Steele the identity of the ultimate client, but The New Yorker has reported that it was Deripaska.

“[F]rom the start, Fusion, Steele, Russia and Trumpworld were on a collision course,” New Yorker writer Jane Mayer wrote of the labyrinthian contacts.

Steele’s work for Deripaska overlapped with his investigation of the Trump campaign.

The bureau relied heavily on information that Steele gathered for his dossier, including allegations of a “well-developed conspiracy of coordination” between the Trump campaign and Russian government. The FBI cited the dossier extensively in applications for surveillance warrants against Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.

The IG report said that the dossier played a “central and essential” role in the FBI’s decision to seek the spy warrants. It also said that the Crossfire Hurricane team was unable to corroborate any of the dossier’s allegations. FBI agents also spoke to a major dossier source who disavowed much of the information that Steele attributed to him in the dossier.

Bill Priestap, who served as chief of the FBI’s counterintelligence unit, and Stuart Evans, who led the Justice Department’s Office of Intelligence, told the IG that they did not know that Steele, a former British spy, was working in 2016 for the oligarch, who is identified as “Russian Oligarch 1” in the IG report. (RELATED: Steele Dossier Played ‘Central And Essential’ Role In FBI’s FISA On Carter Page)

Priestap and Evans told the IG that the Steele-Deripaska connection was relevant to Crossfire Hurricane since investigators relied so heavily on Steele’s dossier during the probe.

“I don’t recall knowing that there was any connectivity,” Priestap told the IG of the links between Steele and Deripaska. Priestap said that it was “completely fair” to say that the FBI would have wanted to assess the Steele-Deripaska relationship.

Evans also told the IG that his office would have evaluated the relationship if lawyers had known about it.

“Counterintelligence investigations are complex, and often involve as I said, you know, double dealing, and people playing all sides …. I think that [the connection between Steele and Russian Oligarch 1] would have been yet another thing we would have wanted to dive into,” he told the IG.

Some FBI agents and at least one Justice Department official knew of Steele’s links to Deripaska, though it is unclear why the information didn’t make it to the Crossfire Hurricane team.

According to the report, an FBI case agent on the Crossfire Hurricane team told the IG that Steele’s handling agent knew that Steele had a relationship with Deripaska, but did not mention it to him.

“He would have wanted to know that information because it could have indicated that Steele was being used in a Russian ‘controlled operation’ to influence perceptions (i.e., a disinformation campaign),” the IG report said, referring to the case agent’s statement to investigators.

Justice Department official Bruce Ohr also knew that Steele worked for Deripaska. Steele lobbied Ohr regarding visa issues that Deripaska was having in 2016, according to publicly available emails. Steele also told Ohr during a meeting in Washington, D.C. on July 30, 2016 that Deripaska’s attorney, Paul Hauser, was investigating Manafort.

Steele’s ties to Deripaska have loomed large over the Trump-Russia probe ever since they were revealed early last year. Their links have raised questions over whether Deripaska was a witting or unwitting source of information for Steele, who was hired to investigate Trump in June 2016 by Fusion GPS. Steele’s work for Deripaska has also surprised some because the former British spy was seen as a staunch critic of the Putin regime.

Deripaska has had a complicated relationship with the U.S. government. The State Department revoked his visa in the 2000s over concerns that he had links to Russian organized crime. But Deripaska has been allowed to visit the U.S. over the years on diplomatic visas. He also helped the U.S. government in an effort to track down Robert Levinson, an FBI agent who disappeared in Iran.

Deripaska’s lawyers have denied that the businessman paid for or helped prepare the dossier.

“However, I can confirm that neither my firm nor I was involved in the commissioning of, preparation of or payment for the so-called ‘Steele Dossier.’ I am not aware of any involvement by Mr. Deripaska in the commissioned, preparing or paying for that document,” Paul Hauser, a partner at the firm Bryan Cave, said in a letter to senators on Feb. 14.

Steele also told the IG that Deripaska had no influence on the information in the dossier.

“In his interview with the OIG, Steele denied that his reporting on Carter Page resulted from work he performed on Russian Oligarch 1’s behalf. Steele described as ‘ridiculous’ any claim that Russian Oligarch 1 was involved in his reporting or influenced it,” the IG report said.

Steele’s claim rested in part on his belief that Deripaska had “no contact with any of his sources” for the dossier. But Deripaska did have contact with a businessman who Steele told the FBI was an unwitting source for most of the dossier’s most eye-popping claims.

Deripaska and the unwitting source, Sergei Millian, were photographed speaking to each other on June 17, 2016 at an economic forum in St. Petersburg with Deripaska. Steele wrote the first memo of his dossier three days later.

Steele claimed that Millian, who is referred to as Person 1 in the IG report, unwittingly provided information to his main information collector, who is identified as Primary Sub-Source. Millian has long denied being a source for the dossier.

Steele’s primary source disavowed some of Steele’s reporting during an interview with FBI agents in January 2017. The IG report said that the source said that he shared “rumor and speculation” about Donald Trump and members of the campaign with Steele, who reported them as fact in the dossier.

The Crossfire Hurricane team failed to disclose the source’s derogatory comments about Steele in applications to renew surveillance against Page.

Priestap, the former counterintelligence official who oversaw Crossfire Hurricane, told the IG he saw “no indication whatsoever” as of May 2017 that Russia had funneled disinformation through Steele.

Deripaska had accused Manafort of stealing $19 million from an investment they shared in a Ukrainian cable company. Manafort, who is serving time in prison on financial crimes charges stemming from the special counsel’s investigation, sent emails during the 2016 campaign in which he asked an associate how he could use his position on the campaign to “get whole” with Deripaska.

THE FLYNN WITCH-HUNT: McCabe’s Revenge?

DougRoss - Fri, 12/13/2019 - 20:45
By Daniel John Sobieski

Michael Flynn and Andrew McCabe have a past that predates the Trump presidency, one that provides ample motivation for the perjury trap that McCabe and James Comey set up after Flynn’s illegal unmasking. McCabe had a personal grudge against Flynn and the perjury trap was his revenge.

It explains why McCabe would entrap Flynn in a seemingly harmless interview about contacts with Flynn’s Russian counterparts, advising Flynn he didn’t need to bring a lawyer along to complicate things:

The federal judge who will sentence Lt.-Gen. Michael Flynn for lying to the FBI has ordered the FBI to give him, by today, the notes written by the two FBI agents who interviewed Flynn in January 2017.

Judge Emmet Sullivan also wants to see a January 24 memo that former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe wrote about his own telephone conversation with Flynn, a conversation that happened just two hours before the FBI agents arrived at Flynn's West Wing office.

This follows information in Flynn's sentencing memo to the court, which suggests that Flynn was deliberately set up:

The sentencing memo says at 12:35 p.m. on January 24, 2017, McCabe called Flynn at his West Wing office to discuss a security training session the FBI had recently conducted at the white [sic] House. McCabe's written memo detailing that phone conversation says McCabe told Flynn "that we needed to have two of our agents sit down" with Flynn to talk about his communications with Russian officials.

McCabe wrote: "I explained that I thought the quickest way to get this done was to have a conversation between [General Flynn] and the agents only. I further stated that if LTG Flynn wished to include anyone else in the meeting, like the White House Counsel for instance, that I would need to involve the Department of Justice. [General Flynn] stated that this would not be necessary and agreed to meet with the agents without any additional participants.”

To help cover up the setup, it also appears that multiple 302s, or FBI interview summaries, were created:

The sentencing memorandum reveals for the first time concrete evidence that the FBI created multiple 302 interview summaries of Flynn’s questioning by now-former FBI agent Peter Strzok and a second unnamed agent, reported to be FBI Special Agent Joe Pientka…

While Flynn’s sentencing memorandum methodically laid out the case for a low-level sentence of one-year probation, footnote 23 dropped a bomb, revealing that the agents’ 302 summary of his interview was dated August 22, 2017. As others have already noted, the August 22, 2017 date is a “striking detail” because that puts the 302 report “nearly seven months after the Flynn interview.” When added to facts already known, this revelation takes on a much greater significance.

Indeed, the existence of multiple 302s and the seven-month gap lends credence that the Flynn investigation was a setup motivated in large part by Andrew McCabe’s desire for personal revenge for Flynn’s past actions impacting McCabe at a personal level.

The unmasking of Flynn in the Russia probe may indeed be retaliation against Flynn for perceived political sins, but not for what and by whom you might think, if reports from investigative watchdog site Circa News are correct. As Sara A. Carter and John Solomon of Circa News report:

The FBI launched a criminal probe against former Trump National Security Adviser Michael Flynn two years after the retired Army general roiled the bureau’s leadership by intervening on behalf of a decorated counterterrorism agent who accused now-Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe and other top officials of sexual discrimination, according to documents and interviews.

Flynn’s intervention on behalf of Supervisory Special Agent Robyn Gritz was highly unusual, and included a letter in 2014 on his official Pentagon stationary, a public interview in 2015 supporting Gritz’s case and an offer to testify on her behalf. His offer put him as a hostile witness in a case against McCabe, who was soaring through the bureau’s leadership ranks.

The FBI sought to block Flynn’s support for the agent, asking a federal administrative law judge in May 2014 to keep Flynn and others from becoming a witness in her Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) case, memos obtained by Circa show. Two years later, the FBI opened its inquiry of Flynn…

McCabe eventually became the bureau’s No. 2 executive and emerged as a central player in the FBI’s Russia election tampering investigation, putting him in a position to impact the criminal inquiry against Flynn.

Three FBI employees told Circa they personally witnessed McCabe make disparaging remarks about Flynn before and during the time the retired Army general emerged as a figure in the Russia case.

In legal circles, that’s called "motive". We have to factor in as well that McCabe and Flynn come from different ends of the political spectrum. Flynn became a key Trump supporter after accusing President Obama of facilitating the rise of ISIS through his policies and inaction. McCabe is a Democratic loyalist whose wife campaigned for state office in Virginia as a Democrat with heavy Democratic financial support.  In fact, McCabe’s efforts on behalf of his wife became the subject of multiple federal probes:

Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe, a central player in the Russia election case, is the focus of three separate federal administrative inquiries into allegations about his behavior as a senior bureau executive, according to documents and interviews.

The allegations being reviewed range from sexual discrimination to improper political activity, the documents show…

Circa reported Monday that former supervisory special agent Robyn Gritz, a decorated counterterrorism agent, has filed a sexual discrimination and retaliation complaint that names McCabe and other top FBI officials…

Gritz also filed a complaint against McCabe with the main federal whistleblower agency in April, alleging social media photos she found show he campaigned for his wife’s Virginia state senate race in violation of the Hatch Act…

In addition, the Justice Department Inspector General is investigating allegations from Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, that McCabe may not have properly disclosed campaign payments to his wife on his ethics report and should have recused himself from Hillary Clinton's email case.

McCabe certainly had no love lost on Michael Flynn, who was a potential witness on behalf of one of McCabe’s accusers. As PJ Media reports:

In 2014, Flynn, then director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, personally intervened on behalf of Supervisory Special Agent Robyn Gritz by writing a letter vouching for her on his official Pentagon stationary and offering to testify on her behalf. He also supported her case in a radio interview in 2015…

The FBI, for its part, claimed that Gritz had become "underperforming, tardy to work, insurbordinate, possibly mentally ill or emotional and deserving of a poor performance review."…

Flynn argued just the opposite in his May 9, 2014 letter: “SSA Gritz was well-known, liked and respected in the military counter-terrorism community for her energy, commitment and professional capacity, and over the years worked in several interagency groups on counter-terrorism targeting initiatives.”

McCabe did not disclose Democratic contributions to his wife’s campaign in Virginia in financial disclosure forms, donations that raised questions about both his integrity and objectivity. As Fox News Politics reports:

The records, obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request, show FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe left the box blank for wife Dr. Jill McCabe's salary, as a doctor with Commonwealth Emergency Physicians. And there is no documentation of the hundreds of thousands of campaign funds she received in her unsuccessful 2015 Virginia state Senate race.

As first reported by The Wall Street Journal, Clinton confidant and Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe urged McCabe’s wife to run for statewide office shortly after news reports were published that Hillary Clinton used a private email server and address for all her government business while serving as secretary of State.  

For the reporting period of October through November 2015, McCabe's campaign filings show she received $467,500 from Common Good VA, a political action committee controlled by McAuliffe, as well as an additional $292,500 from a second Democratic PAC.

Connect those dots, Democrats and others looking for Russians hiding under Republican beds. We have a former Deputy FBI Director, Andrew McCabe, campaigning for his wife who receives huge sums of money from the Democratic Party of Clinton political ally Terry McAuliffe. After Clinton blames Russia for her election loss, Flynn becomes a target of an FBI probe in which his identity is illegally unmasked. He was a character witness on behalf of one of McCabe’s accusers. Was the largesse to Mrs. McCabe a quid for a future quo? Is all this just the result of McCabe’s lust for personal revenge?

MARK LEVIN: The Next Democrat President Must be Impeached

DougRoss - Sun, 12/08/2019 - 19:55
By Mark R. Levin

I am of the opinion that the next Democrat president must be impeached.

That's the only way to stop this.

If the Republicans control the House, they must impeach the next Democrat President to ensure this sort of thing is never repeated.

The next Democrat President must be impeached? What are grounds? It doesn't matter.

With Trump, they were talking impeachment when he was a candidate. They were talking impeachment the day he got elected. I told you, this is all sham. It's a scam. It's a ruse.

The only way to stop them is to turn the political and impeachment guns on them.

The next Democrat president must be impeached.

The Republican Congress can take a page from Nadler, from Waters, from Engel, from Schiff and all the rest.

They should issue scores and scores of subpoenas. Scores of subpoenas, for financial information, for bank records, for tax information; all kinds of communications with, around and about the president; issue subpoenas for the president's White House Counsel, Chief of Staff, National Security Adviser, and other people who are closest to the president so he ceases to function.

You want to burden this Democrat president as much as possible. You want to undermine him as much as possible.

And you can wave around the Pelosi doctrine, the Schiff doctrine, the Nadler doctrine, and all the rest of them. Use their rules and take him down.

Do the Republicans have the guts to do so? I doubt it, but they must.

It is the only way to fix the Constitutional order when it comes to impeachment, because the Democrats are creating this precedent.

Now let them eat it.

Joe Biden would be the perfect Democrat president to be impeached.

Start subpoenaing all of his records; all of his phone calls with Ukraine, all of his phone calls with Red China.

You bring Hunter Biden in for 30 hours of secret testimony, like they brought Don Jr. in.

You create a special counsel, the way they created a special counsel against President Trump.

You demand Joe Biden testify in person and, when he refuses, you claim he has something to hide.

Imagine using their tools and their rhetoric against their guy. Or gal, it could be Elizabeth Warren, another liar. She's another one with interesting finances. Well, we want to get to the bottom of it.

The next Democrat president must be impeached.

And Nancy Pelosi and Adam Schiff and Nadler and the others; CNN, the Washington Post, the New York Times, ABC and the others; they have all laid the foundation.

And the only way to stop this is to destroy their foundation with their guy or their lady.

QOTD:

To my most pessimistic friends. Regardless of whether the IG report pleases, disappoints or straddles the fence, it is sure to expose many facts. And this corner of Twitter will use and crowdsource those facts (and may rip a wormhole into the fabric of the swamp universe).
