Beware the Ides, Et tu, Q-ute

Thursday was an extremely busy day for drops on the board. I will briefly speak about most of them.

Disgraced FBI agent Peter Strzok’s Capitol Hill testimony was released. Between his and ex-lover Lisa Page, who was a FBI lawyer, we see the “collusion” on their part to frame candidate Trump and spy on President-elect Trump.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s deputy Andrew Weissman leaving after two years of probing Trump and finding nothing.

Rod Rosenstein’s debrief is complete, meaning he will be stepping down very soon.

Attorney General William Barr is very “disgusted” by what he has discovered went on in Obama’s DOJ and FBI against Trump and his campaign. We are told a press conference laying out many of criminal charges will be coming soon.

We learned from Nellie Ohr’s Congressional testimony that she was in fact a CIA agent while working with Christopher Steele on the Russian Dossier for Fusion/GPS.

We have two key executives announcing they are leaving Facebook after arguing with Mark Zuckerberg. The exits of No.3 FB exec and head of WhatsApp comes one day after a global blackout and just days after news breaks of the connection between LifeLog — a DARPA project — and Facebook.

A drop on the mosque shooting in New Zealand where 49 people died said be vigilant. If you see something, say something. The bad actors are looking for a way to change the narrative.

So plenty of news and we are told today is Friday. It’s the Ides of March, so Et tu, Q-ute

Loretta Lynch’s incredulous testimony to House over FISA spying application

Former Obama Attorney General Loretta Lynch told a closed-door Congressional testimony last Dec that she had no recollection of signing FISA court applications to spy on Trump campaign aide Carter Page.

Lynch, although acknowledging that her signature as AG is required, bit told House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte, according to Sara Carter who has strong Capitol Hill sources.

The ex-AG told lawmakers that her deputies, first Sally Yates, and then he renewal was approved by Rod Rosenstein. Other signatories were former FBI Director James Comey, former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.

In contentious testimony to Goodlatte’s queries, Lynch told repeatedly in many different iterations that she was aware the AG needed to be final sign off on all FISA applications and renewals, but had no memory of approving the spying of Carter Page.

Yesterday, I wrote about the intense spying application on Page.

The key to Lynch’s testimony is that the ex-AG said: “Don’t remember,” Don’t have a recollection” and “Don’t recall” are the answers she gave Goodlatte to his incredulous questions of how she allegedly delegated her responsibility as the nation’s top law official when it came to spying on an American citizen working for a Republican presidential campaign.

What Independence Day 2019 might look like after FISA release

Let’s say today’s date is Independence Day — July 4, 2019.

It’s been a tumultuous eight weeks as a sea change has taken over the political scene in the US.

Who could have seen the day when former President Obama and ex-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton among others would face federal sedition and possibly treason charges as a result of the information in the declassified release of the FISA warrant applications in mid-March.

As I have written about numerous times, the Russian Dossier was a contrived plan brewed up by ex-CIA Director John Brennan and former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper to cover up earlier spying campaigns on GOP candidates Donald Trump and Sen. Ted Cruz and perhaps other potential presidential Republican nominees. Both Brennan and Clapper will be tried in a military court as well due to the sedition charges and pending treason charges.

The question that will put both Brennan and Clapper away is How did the British, Australian, New Zealand and Canadian spy operations, as part of the Five Eyes cooperative surveillance program know what was contained in the FISA warrant? The secretive court is not even subject to Freedom of Information requests, yet foreign nationals knew all about its rulings against Trump campaign associate Carter Page and the two hop ruling.

The foreign spies knew the FISA court allowed the two-hop rule when spying on Page. This meant that anyone Page communicated with was subject to surveillance and then anyone that group communicated with was also a subject to the spies. So that gets you very far up the Trump organization, if not to the top.

The fact that Obama Attorney General Loretta Lynch allowed the President to be implicated in this illegal spying operation — with assistance from Five Eyes allies — proves that no one in the White House believed Hillary Clinton would ever lose the election.

The fact is the information was included in Obama’s daily intelligence briefings and had audio and video surveillance presented in the Situation Room in the basement of the White House has put Obama in the cross hairs of two military criminal probes.

Trump was more than likely made aware of the Brennan/Clapper spying operation by the then NSA Director Mike Rogers, who is said to have told the President-elect to move elsewhere to form his transition team. The President-elect took his staff to his Bedminster, NJ mansion the next day.

And while the feds got Al Capone on tax aversion, Hillary will face much more criminal charges besides just improperly filing on Clinton Foundation tax situation. She faces multiple felony fraud charges.

This blockbuster news has moved the names we were hearing for months into the footnotes of history.¬† Ex-FBI Director James Comey and staff as well as DOJ’s Asst. Attorney General Rod Rosenstein et al become bit players who probably gave up everything they knew and then some to get a better deal from prosecutors and/or tribunials.

The rumblings coming out of Federal Attorney’s office in Utah appear to implicate members of the media with collusion and collaboration with Democratic partly members. Fed prosecutor John Huber may have a monumental effort to bring these charges, he believes he has the proof to get around any First Amendment defense on the part of these “journalists”.

It should be a glorious celebration in DC this  Fourth of July.

Whitaker reigns in Mueller then President submits written answers

It appears that Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker has put a leash on Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

Whitaker is constraining Mueller’s probe after Asst Attorney General Rod Rosenstein broaden the scope through “special articles” addendum that allowed the investigation to go down many avenues not germane to original orders.

I am assuming this is why we got the news that President Trump handed over his written responses to Mueller’s questions.

Once Mueller sent the queries to the President’s attorney on the matter, Rudy Giuliani, the White House could get a sense of the sprawl and wanderings Mueller’s team was poking around.

That’s when Whitaker was brought in to reign in Mueller to focus on the original mandate of the Special Counsel.

We also learned last night that the House Oversight Subcommittee on Government Operations will hold hearings on Dec. 5th to get an update on a probe from US Attorney General John Huber and the Justice Department into the Clinton Foundation.

We have had no leaks from Huber’s team, so this could be a great insight into what the US Attorney has been able to uncover over the 10 months.

I also assume that ranking member Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) will recommend that the Senate panel take over this part of the probe, so it is not squashed come January when control of the House and its committees come under Democratic control.
