Do them Dems really want Assange to talk?

I found it very funny that on Wednesday the Attorney General of the United States William Barr told a Senate committee he had a belief that the Trump presidential campaign was spied upon.

While this should have created a media firestorm, mainstream media ignored the story for the most part as I wrote Thursday about the New York Times coverage.

Nevertheless, the Deep State needed to assure there would be little coverage going forward, so after seven years of being holed up in the Ecuadorian embassy Julian Assange was thrown out by the South American country and arrested by London police.

with that the Friday morning news is all about Assange with no follow-up on AG Barr’s comments. Case closed for now.

We know from the Q drops that Assange has plenty of information regarding illegal acts perpetrated by the Democrats leading into the 2016 election including Hillary Clinton’s illegal computer server containing classified information.

The Clinton campaign alleged that the Russians hacked the illegal server and that’s how Wikileaks obtained all the emails, but from the drops we are told that a staffer downloaded the files to a thumb drive.

That staffer was Seth Rich, who was murdered in an “attempted robbery” in DC  on Sunday, July 10, 2016, at 4:20 am. Nothing was taken from him in the robbery. His wallet, phone and keys were all found in his possession. His death is still an unsolved case in DC.

So now that Assange is in custody in London and the Department of Justice is making an application to have him brought to the US to face charges related to how Wikileaks obtained other classified information through Chelsea Manning’s hacks.

Will we also find out more information on the Clinton campaign’s pre-2016 election crimes?

Time will tell.

How many Obama cronies will fail the Barr?

Attorney General William Barr dropped a bombshell in front of a Senate panel Wednesday saying he believes the Trump campaign was spied upon during the 2016 presidential election.

Readers of Gray’s Economy are probably saying it’s about time, since I have written this story a number of times.

“I think spying did occur.” Barr testified before a Senate Appropriations subcommittee, adding that “Spying on a political campaign is a big deal.”

On Tuesday before a House panel Barr hinted at the spying accusation. He stated he set up a team to investigate the origins of the FBI’s counterintelligence investigation into the Trump campaign.

On Wednesday, Barr walked back his remarks about setting up a team for an investigation of the FBI and appeared to be looking only at the ex-Director James Comey’s office and his staff.

“This is not launching an investigation of the FBI,” he stressed. “Frankly, to the extent there were issues at the FBI, I do not view it as a problem of the FBI. I think it was probably a failure of the group of leaders — the upper echelons of the FBI. I think the FBI is an outstanding organization and I am very pleased Director Chris Wray is there.”

Barr’s testimony on spying is a prelude to the release of Justice Department watchdog Michael Horowitz’s report on FISA court abuses coming in a few weeks.

However a word search on New York Times web site at 7am Thursday morning shows no  Barr story on the homepage detailing his testimony. I find that very interesting news judgement.

The Attorney General — under oath in front of the Senate committee — states that a presidential campaign was spied upon by the outgoing administration and there is no mention of it on the nytimes.com homepage.

FBI’s Baker was “freaked out” by Clinton biases inside DOJ, FBI

On Tuesday closed-door testimony from FBI General Counsel James Baker was released by Representative Doug Collins (R-Ga).

Baker in blockbuster admissions spoke of the whitewashing of Hillary Clinton’s abuses with classified documents on her home server and the destruction of those devices to cover up her violations under the Espionage Act.

However, Comey and others in the Department of Justice swayed Baker away from pursuing any charges against the Democratic presidential candidate.

Baker believed and testified to the fact that Clinton should have been prosecuted for her acts in 2015 for obstruction of justice, at the least, for destroying evidence under the Espionage Act.

Comey’s top lawyer also gave damning testimony on the Russian Dossier and the top-level FBI biases against presidential candidate Donald Trump. Baker says he was “quite worried that the investigation may be driven by political biases.”

Baker — under oath — told of his personal relationship with a top lawyer at Perkins Coie, who was one of several different actors, that brought the Clinton campaign paid for Russian Dossier to his attention. Perkins Coie was the law firm representing the Clinton campaign.

Alleged journalist David Corn working for Yahoo was another actor that spoke to Baker about the dossier and how the FBI should launch an investigation into the Trump campaign.

Lastly, Baker told lawmakers behind closed doors how Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein was very serious when Rosenstein suggested he would wear a wire and meet with President Trump in order to spy on and gather evidence to remove the president under the 25th Amendment rule.

So what we have here is sworn testimony on how the Deep State attempted to pervert the 2016 presidential election with lies and cover ups and yet I see no story on NYTimes.com even making not of the story.

If the tables were turned it would be a page one banner headline.

Trump’s ‘Godfather’ moment on immigration

In the last several days President Trump and his consigliere Stephen Miller have settled all family business when it comes to dealing with immigration.

The departures of Department of Homeland Security chief Kirstjen Nielsen and head of the Secret Service Randolph Alles along with the pulling of Ron Vitiello’s nomination to lead Immigration and Customs Enforcement show the extent of displeasure the White House has with the current staff’s protection of the southern border.

Lee Cissna, director of Citizenship and Immigration Services, could be the next one to be axed or resign. The Secret Service falls under Homeland Security agency, which oversees the US’s immigration and national-security apparatus.

Trump has requested that Miller and other senior White House staff take a more active role in instituting a stronger policy to stop the flow of illegal immigrants from streaming into the country.

Obviously there was a disconnect between what Trump was hearing about Homeland Security from his White House aides and what was actually happening at the border, which he toured late last week with Nielsen.

Trump’s preferred choice to lead Homeland Security is Kevin McAleena, who is currently the Customs and Border Protection Commissioner. However, according to federal guidelines, the deputy secretary for the department, Claire Grady, would have to be named acting secretary when Nielsen officially turns in her resignation sometime this week.

All that’s left is for Trump to tell Nielsen is, “It’s business, it’s not personal.”

Nunes criminal referrals may move Huber/Horowitz probes forward

California Republican Congressman Devin Nunes will bring his criminal referrals to Attorney General William Barr early this week.

Nunes has publicly said he has eight initial charges against numerous individuals for leaking, lying to Congress. The representative, who has been in the middle of probing the FISA abuse during the Obama administration, suggested that some journalists should be questioned about the leaks.

Nunes, ranking member of the United States House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, also said he will give the referrals directly to Barr since there are still questionable characters working within the upper ranks of the Department of Justice and FBI.

Barr will more than likely refer these charges to existing investigations being conducted by DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz and/or Federal Attorney John Huber since he has also hinted that the clearing out of rogue elements within the DOJ still needs to be completed.

I am very confident that within Nunes referrals is a charge against fellow California democratic congressman Adam Schiff, who now chairs intelligence committee. Schiff was requested to step down from that position by republicans last week after the release of the Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report  found no collusion with the Russians and no obstruction of justice by the Trump administration or campaign.

Since the charges deal with classified information we will not know who is being charged by Nunes, but it is safe to say that the upper echelon of the Obama administration along with the intelligence chiefs and DOJ and FBI officials will be included.

I have a sense that the Nunes charges and all the supporting classified documents contained within the charges may be just the information that either Huber or Horowitz need to move their respective cases forward.
