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.

 

Who cares about Strzok/Page tweets, Obama spied on Trump even after the election. Let’s get on with the show

It appears that the national media are only focusing on ex-FBI exec Peter Strzok and ex-FBI lawyer Lisa Page in their investigation of the contrived Russian Collusion cover up.

With a salacious wink-wink of being able to view the former “lovers” tweets, we see how these two used left-wing journalist from the New York Times and Washington Post to push the narrative.

As an aside, I put lovers in quotes given Strzok strange ticks and facial expressions while in Congressional testimony. I believe his wife, Melissa Hodgman, is probably the only woman who would fall for him.

Anyway the narrative is playing out that these two rogue FBI execs working under Andrew McCabe, the former Deputy Director of the FBI, contrived this Russian Collusion story with the Clinton campaign. They are attempting to draw the line there and that knowledge of this operation went no higher. At least that is what I am seeing in the news story so far.

As I already laid out, this could not be further from the truth. Let me put this out simply.

We know that the FISA warrant on Carter Page came about because of The Dossier written by Chris Steele of Fusion/GPS and was paid for by the Democratic National Committee and the Clinton Presidential Campaign.

We know that the first FISA application was denied, so DOJ and FBI staff leaked the story to Times and Post writers and then used those stories as part of the second FISA application on Page to give it more credence, which was approved.

Now the FISA surveillance warrant allowed spying on whomever Page had contact with and then whomever they had contact with and then whomever they had contact with. So the spying expanded three times because of that fraud perpetrated on the FISA court.

And still no evidence of Russian collusion within the Trump campaign.

However we do know that the information obtained by the FISA warrant went all the up to the Oval Office. Obama through his daily intelligence briefings knew the DOJ and FBI were spying on the Trump campaign and his Presidential team after winning the election.

So draw a line back from Obama to McCabe, all those people within tha chain of command are implicated. Ex-Attorney General Loretta Lynch, Ex-CIA Director John Brennan, FBI chief James Comey and all the other intelligence chiefs working in the Obama administration who had a hand in preparing the daily intelligence briefings.

And yet, we get Lisa Page tweets talking about how to plant a story with the New York Times reporter. I don’t care about these peons.

Let’s get on with the show.

NYT’s Watkins may have had her own insurance policy, unredacted Page FISA images

It appears there is already a unredacted copy of the Carter Page FISA application sitting on a New York Times newsroom server courtesy of former Washington bureau reporter Ali Watkins, according to a recent report.

Watkins, 26, you may remember was the ex-Buzzfeed, ex-Huff-Po, ex-Politico reporter, who has admitted to having a three-year affair with James Wolfe, a high-ranking aide on the Senate Intelligence Committee. Wolfe, 58, was charged with lying to the FBI during its Intelligence committee leak probe

Ali Watkins

During this time Watkins was a finalist for a Pulitzer prize for her writing on the intelligence community.

As part of the leak probe Watkins, then working for the New York Times had her emails and other correspondences with Wolfe seized as part of the investigation.

Federal prosecutors have a very high bar to hurdle in order for a grand jury to subpoena a reporters phone and text messages, which the Intelligence leak probe accomplished. Watkins did not inform the Times of this subpoena until the paper was about to write about Wolfe being charged, some months later on advice from her lawyer.

As part of that investigation, it is alleged by the blog site The Conservative Treehouse, that Wolfe sent Watkins 82 images of the 83-page Page FISA application. One page was blank in the document.

Is this the reason Watkins was only reassigned by the Times after confessing to sleeping with a source?

Did the Times want to hold on to the images or was it as Executive Editor Dean Baquet said at the time, “I also believe that The Times must be a humane place that can allow for second chances when there are mitigating circumstances.”

The “mitigating circumstances” may very well be the unredacted FISA application images.

The second chance alluded to by Baquet  had many in the Times newsroom questioning why she would be kept on staff after admitting to such offenses.

However, Watkins is now writing about bees swarming a hot-dog cart in Times Square, which seems to me to be a stinging rebuke for her journalistic mistakes.

McCain’s legacy could take a major hit if unredacted FISA warrant is released

I find the timing of the death of Senator John McCain on Saturday curious as his family stated he stopped treating the glioblastoma on Friday.

Now I’m no expert on brain cancer admittedly, But McCain’s wife did say he died on his own terms, which could be taken to mean he passed by taking his life.

I bring this up because on Tuesday Justice Department official Bruce Ohr is schedule to testify before the House Oversight and Judiciary Committees behind closed doors.

Ohr, who had no direct responsibility in the investigation into Russian collusion case or Hillary Clinton’s email probe found himself in the middle of both investigations in 2015 through 2017, without his superiors allegedly knowing.

Ohr’s wife Nellie Ohr, worked for Fusion/GPS  on opposition research for Hillary Clinton’s campaign and more than likely helped Christopher Steele write and research the Trump Dossier suggesting the Russian collusion. Bruce Ohr and Steele had many conversations, both before the 2016 presidential election and afterward when James Comey was fired as FBI Director by President Trump. Steele asked Bruce Ohr if the insurance policy was still in place after Comey’s firing.

Now getting back to McCain, in his book, “The Restless Wave,” he states that he received the dossier in Halifax, Nova Scotia shortly after the election from a retired a British diplomat, Andrew Wood.

McCain ultimately turned the dossier over to Comey on December 9, 2016.

However there is another take on McCain’s involvement in the dossier, and that goes further back in 2016 before the election. McCain had unannounced travel to Saudi Arabia and London in the late spring of 2016, according to sources.
That travel and meetings held suggest that McCain had a more hands on involvement in the creation of the dossier and that all this can be verified in the unredacted FISA warrant for Trump campaign associate Carter Page.
Other sources point out this is why President Trump does not mention his name since the fall of 2017. McCain’s intimate involvement in the conspiracy to throw the election to Hillary Clinton.
Since Bruce Ohr’s testimony will be behind closed boors on Tuesday, I believe this is why President Trump tweeted last week that he would have to become involved in the Mueller probe by declassifying the FISA warrant in order to show who all the players are and their roles.
