Trump uses Obama’s Executive Order to declassify FISA application: Hoist by his own petard

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s efforts to halt the presidential request to release the declassified Carter Page FISA application has been thwarted by his boss AG Jeff Sessions.

Rosenstein apparently had many reasons to quash the release none of them lawful, most of the reasons centered on covering up lawlessness within the Obama Justice Department and FBI.

While President Trump neglected to cite as the reason for the declassification it ironically goes back to a Obama executive order 13526 signed in 2009. This is why he used the phrase “for reasons of transparency” in his directive.

The EO details reasons for prohibiting classified documents.

Executive Order 13526 Sec 1.7 “Classification Prohibitions and Limitations.

(a) In no case shall information be classified, continue to be maintained as classified, or fail to be declassified in order to:

(1) conceal violations of law, inefficiency, or administrative error;

(2) prevent embarrassment to a person, organization, or agency;

(3) restrain competition; or

(4) prevent or delay the release of information that does not require protection in the interest of the national security.”

I say ironically because President Trump is able to use a Obama directive to unseal documents, which shows violations of law, which at the very least, will cause embarrassment to his administration.

The line from “Hamlet” hoist by his own petard seems to apply here quite well. Its literal meaning: the bombmaker blew himself up.

I don’t see Rosenstein being employed by the Justice Department much longer. Once the documents are released AG Sessions will fire him for cause. Taking the highly partisan politics out of the debate.

Trust Sessions to shine sunlight on unredacted FISA documents

As I wrote on Tuesday, the ramifications of the glorious Constitutional Day of September 17th announcement to declassify the FISA application documents, I neglected one big move.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions has notified Supreme Court Chief Judge John Roberts and Associate Judge Clarence Thomas that he no longer is recusing himself in the Russian collusion matters.

I assume upon release of the FISA documents relating to Carter Page, Sessions will announce that a non-partisan probe has concluded the Trump administration had no involvement with the Russians during the 2016 election and that he as chief law enforcement officer in the US will now pursue charges against the Obama administration for its complicit actions to sway the election for Hillary Clinton.

The Sessions recusal was really about allowing and documenting the illegal actions of those in the Department of Justice and FBI to continue unimpeded. Then once there was sufficient documentation of the systemic rot within the upper levels of both agencies the hammer dropped.

How do I know this is true? Look at the reactions from Democrats to the Trump announcement on declassifying the FISA documents. They use words like UNLAWFUL, DANGEROUS, LAWLESS, PROFOUND ALARM. For the Dems all these words ring true, but for Americans allowing sunlight in can only help disinfect these treasonous acts.

In a letter addressed to Dan Coats, the Director of National Intelligence, Rod Rosenstein, Asst. Attorney General and Christopher Wray, FBI Director, Sens. Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi and Mark Warner along with Rep. Adam Schiff deplore the intelligence chiefs to ignore the presidential directive.

And then the letter goes on to say that “the Gang Of Eight,” referring to themselves and others “should be briefed in person.” Really, you want to call yourself the Gang of Eight? Are you an offshoot of MS-13?

While many say Rosenstein is history if he bucks the president’s order on declassifying the FISA application, it is no longer his call. Sessions will be the president’s point man now. That’s why he communicated with SCOTUS.

It’s all about Sessions now. Trust Sessions.

This is what will happen because of the declassified FISA warrant is unleashed

So as the Washington DC smouldering ashes subside after the multiple booms that happen Tuesday night as a result of President Trump requesting from the intelligence agencies to declassify the FISA or Foreign Intelligence Surveillance application of Trump campaign associate Carter Page.

Here is a plain language timeline of events that will unfold as a result of this act.

  • The document used to get the warrant was called Russian Dossier. It was written by FBI informant and British spy Christopher Steele with research help from Nellie Ohr. Her husband Bruce Ohr worked for the Justice Department. He should not have had any involvement in the Dossier probe because of his position, but injected himself into the fracas due to partisanship.
  • The Russian Dossier was paid for by the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign.
  • The first request to spy on Carter Page was denied. The FBI through agent Peter Strzok and lawyer Lisa Page leaked elements of the Dossier to NY Times and Washington Post reporters and then included those stories in the second application to the court to spy on Carter Page, which was granted.
  • Carter Page was a nothing in the Trump campaign, but the level of spying on him by the FISA court was the most invasive level the court could grant called Title One. The spying was allowed to go at two levels past Carter Page. FBI and DOJ could spy on him and all the people he spoke to and everyone they spoke to or communicated with. working their way up the chain.
  • Attorney General Loretta Lynch through her happenstance meeting with Bill Clinton on a Phoenix tarmac knew all about the origin of the Dossier and instructed FBI Director James Comey to initiate the false investigation with deputy Andrew McCabe and Rod Rosenstein.
  • Many top officials in the DOJ and FBI during the Obama administration will be implicated in the fraud.
  • When Robert Mueller was named Special Counsel to probe the Russian collusion with the Trump administration Rosenstein knew it was based on fraudulent information.
  • Lastly, President Obama was spying on a presidential candidate and President-elect by receiving information daily in his intelligence briefings again based on a fraudulent premise.

This will unleash a Constitutional crisis to make Watergate appear to be a routine breaking and entering charge, which it was.

 

Everything is coming up 17 for Q

Mark September 17 down. There’s that 17 again. What number is the letter Q?

Today was the MOAB of drops as we finally get the Carter Page FISA documents declas-sified. But that was the tip of the iceberg.

As a result of the FISA release we also get Attorney General Sessions back on the case as he contacts the Supreme Court Justice Roberts that he no longer has the need to recuse himself from the Russian collusion case since there is no case against the president of his administration.

It is also revealed that Senate Democrats would look the other way on Supreme Court designate Brett Kavanaugh if the White House did not release the FISA application.

This is not a game, Kavanaugh will pass the Senate despite their mock protestations.

And so the panic has set in in DC: Lynch talking. Bad news for both Clintons with the Phoenix runway meeting and the quid pro quo. Bad news for Obama and all those daily intelligence briefings he received about spying on president-elect based on the fraudulent intelligence of the Dossier, which he was fully aware of.

Goodbye Rod Rosenstein
Goodbye Robert Mueller

Goodbye midterms,

Good Night!
Good night

Trump declassifies Carter Page FISA docs: Enjoy the show

The President on Tuesday moved to have the FISA application against Carter Page declassified.This is the red-carpet bomb promised earlier by Q-Anon.

Below is the directive released by the White House Press Office:

At the request of a number of committees of Congress, and for reasons of transparency, the President has directed the Office of the Director of National Intelligence and the Department of Justice (including the FBI) to provide for the immediate declassification of the following materials: (1) pages 10-12 and 17-34 of the June 2017 application to the FISA court in the matter of Carter W. Page; (2) all FBI reports of interviews with Bruce G. Ohr prepared in connection with the Russia investigation; and (3) all FBI reports of interviews prepared in connection with all Carter Page FISA applications.

In addition, President Donald J. Trump has directed the Department of Justice (including the FBI) to publicly release all text messages relating to the Russia investigation, without redaction, of James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, and Bruce Ohr.
