Need to look at the spouses of disgraced FBI and DOJ officials

The FBI’s Deputy Assistant Director of the Counterintelligence Division Peter Strzok was fired by the deputy director of the bureau on Monday for his anti-Trump bias while investigating the Russian collusion case.

While that may be an easy charge to pin on him given the number of tweets he shared with FBI lawyer Lisa Page and how they wrote how they would stop Trump from being elected, I believe Strzok along with DOJ’s former associate deputy attorney general Bruce Ohr will be charged with further crimes for covering up the Russian Dossier.

Both Stzok and Ohr covered up the origins of the dossier when it was presented to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) court for approval to spy on Trump campaign associate Carter Page. They did not tell the court that the Fusion/GPS document written by former MI-6 spy Christopher Steele  was financed through the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign.

In December 2017, Bruce Ohr was removed from his position as US associate deputy attorney general over his involvement with the dossier.

Now let’s look at the spouses of these two men.

Bruce Ohr is married to Nellie Ohr and according to a House Intelligence Committee memo released by Chairman Devin Nunes, Nellie Ohr was “employed by Fusion GPS to assist in the cultivation of opposition research on Trump” and that Bruce Ohr passed along the results of that research, which was paid for by the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and the Hillary Clinton campaign, to the FBI. The “salacious and unverified” dossier was used to obtain a FISA surveillance warrant to spy on Carter Page.

Peter Strzok is married to Melissa Hodgman who is an Associate Director in the Securities and Exchange Commission’s Enforcement Division since Oct. 2016.

Hodgman was named to the position two days after her husband discovered that the New York office of the FBI found 650,000 emails on Anthony Weiner’s lap top.

Many of the emails between Hillary Clinton and Huma Abedin, Weiner’s wife, showed at the very least they were using an unsecured private server containing classified documents. We may never know all that was on that laptop, but Weiner is serving a 21-month sentence for engaging in lewd acts with a 15-year-old girl online.

In Hodgman’s new position she could direct or coordinate investigations between the SEC and DOJ utilizing FBI enforcement staff. She also oversees international investigations, leading some to speculate at the time that Hodgman could be an “insurance policy” to look into financial records between Russians and the Trump campaign should that need to be done.

Trump has an October Surprise in his pocket for midterms

Back in April of this year I wrote about what is now coming to the fore.

The story dribbling out now is how the Carter Page Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant was issued based on the Trump Dossier, which was paid for in large part by the Clinton campaign. Yes you have Fusion/GPS and Christopher Steele operating with Clinton campaign and the Obama White House all of which I covered here.

The whole Russian collusion case is based on lies forged in the dossier and circulated to partisan federal law enforcement staff in the FBI and DOJ, who cleaned it up a bit and included some other “questionable” facts and presented the finding to the FISA court for the surveillance warrant. The feds did not tell the court that the application was based largely on Clinton campaign opposition research.

The first ruling from the court did not grant the warrant, so the document was re-circulated among the same staffers: AG Loretta Lynch, FBI director James Comey, his second in charge, Rod Rosenstein, FBI investigator Peter Strzok and FBI lawyer Lisa Page among others and reissued to the court and was approved. All of this is known to my readers months ago.

However until the unredacted FBI application for the warrant is released Americans will not know the truly despicable acts taking place within the Obama White House to ensure a Hillary Clinton victory.

The most interesting development — largely overlooked by the press — was that the redacted FBI application was released at all. FISA operations have the highest security clearance in government. FISA operations are not subject to Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests. So who approved its release?

Only one person could declassify the heavily redacted FBI warrant application: President Trump. Will the President declassify the entire report? That could be an October Surprise in time for the midterm elections.

 

 

 

Comey, Rosenstein, Mueller keeping America unsafe since 2001

As the Department of Justice, FBI and Special Council are investigating the 2016 presidential election, the Russian influence as well as President Trump, the principals behind these probes have plenty of experience working with each other without ever bringing charges.

Beginning in 2001 a grand jury was impaneled to look into the Clinton Foundation and its declarations of donations when it comes to IRS filings.

In 2001, former DOJ staff attorney Lois Lerner was named chief of the IRS charitably ruling and exemption unit.

In 2002 James Comey was tapped to head the investigation into the Clinton Foundation.

Also now-Assistant Attorney General of the United States, Rod Rosenstein was in charge of the DoJ’s Tax Division from 2001 to 2005 and Robert Mueller was the head of the FBI.

So now you have all the players in the current probe got the band back together in 2017 from 2002.

There was a mini-reunion in 2009 when Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State and approved the sale of 20% of our Uranium to Russia.

Robert Mueller — still leading the FBI — is sent to Russia in 2009 with a sample of the uranium under the guise of allowing Russians to test the purity of the element in an alleged criminal case.

A FBI mole inside the Clinton Foundation reports back to Mueller & Co that President Clinton received $500,000 for a speaking fee in Moscow just prior to State Department’s approval of the Uranium sale. The former president also met with President Putin for several hours while there.

So the FBI refers the case to the DOJ’s US Attorney’s Office in Maryland, which is head up by Rod Rosenstein. The mole in the case has a gag order place on the information he has provided and nothing further is pursued in the Uranium 1 case.

In 2012, Lois Lerner — still at the IRS overseeing charitable trusts and foundations — loses many emails related to the granting of tax-exempt status for conservative groups in the run up to the presidential election. She also had a dummy email address named after her dog.

The FBI under Comey wrote of the case: found “substantial evidence of mismanagement, poor judgment and institutional inertia” but “found no evidence that any IRS official acted based on political, discriminatory, corrupt, or other inappropriate motives that would support a criminal prosecution.”

So that brings us to the present and the Russia hacking the 2016 presidential election.

FBI Director James Comey is fired by President Trump in May 2017 — probably knowing the history that I am laying here — after it’s discovered he was drafting an exoneration letter for presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s  private email server containing classified information before a grand jury was impaneled or subjects were questioned.

Rod Rosenstein becomes becomes Asst. Attorney General and leads the efforts after AG Jeff Sessions recuses himself from the Russian probe. Rosenstein taps old buddy Mueller as special counsel for the Russia probe.

So there you have it. Since 2001 these men have been working so closely together in what appears to be a concerted effort to keep prying eyes away from the Clintons and there assorted alleged crimes and misdemeanors.

DOJ report confirms Clinton-Lynch tarmac meeting planned

As I have written many times, the President Bill Clinton- Attorney General Loretta Lynch June 2016 tarmac meeting in Phoenix was not a friendly get-together that happen spontaneously, according to the DOJ Inspector General’s report.

Michael Horowitz’s report states that Lynch’s public affairs supervisor, who was traveling with her, informed DOJ investigators that President Clinton’s Secret Service detail contacted Lynch’s security detail well ahead of time to arrange the meeting.

This goes against the narrative both players have said that the rendezvous was a friendly stop and chat for the last two years.

As I have reported this “casual get-together to talk about the grand kids,” was followed days later by then-FBI Director James Comey stating that his agency, which reports to the DOJ chief,  would not recommend criminal charges against Clinton for using a private email server while Secretary of State.

On page 203 of the report it states:

The OPA Supervisor said that he later learned that former President Clinton’s Secret Service detail had contacted Lynch’s FBI security detail and let them know that the former President wanted to meet with Lynch. Although Lynch’s staff was supposed to receive notice of such requests, witnesses told us that they were not informed of the request from former President Clinton.

So President Clinton knew Lynch’s plane was there and scheduled a meeting with the Attorney General. The same woman would was probing his wife’s use of a private email server to save top-secret government documents.

Although not mentioned in the report, I have a source stating that President Barack Obama was on a call to the plane from the Oval Office at the time of the meeting. The source claims NSA recordings of the meeting exist.

Twenty minutes into the meeting a Lynch senior staffer entered the plane to break up the meeting as a photographer was spotted in the area.

Documents on tarmac meeting between Clinton & Lynch now classified above top secret

The Department of Justice stonewalling Congress on the Hillary Clinton email probe continues.

Now the documents requested by Devin Nunes’ permanent House committee pertaining to the meeting between Loretta Lynch and President Bill Clinton on a Phoenix airport tarmac have been given such a high security clearance that no member can see the incriminating documents.

“It is remarkable how this Justice Department is protecting the corruption of the Obama Justice Department,” notes Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch, which is suing the DOJ for the material, speaking to Paul Sperry of RealClear Investigations.

Not even members of Congress with top-secret security clearance have been allowed to see the unverified accounts intercepted from presumed Russian sources in which the head of the Democratic National Committee, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, allegedly implicates the Clinton campaign and Lynch in the scheme, Sperry reports.

This goes back to my reporting last week were I said that Rod Rosenstein would be the fall guy to cover up this cover up that reached into the Obama Oval Office.

While the Wasserman Schultz memos show that then-FBI chief James Comey was “going easy on Lynch” over the hacked email server used by Clinton while Secretary of State, there are additional reports that Obama was on the phone during the infamous tarmac meeting.

So one can see why these reports are “so sensitive” for the Democrats.
