FISA release ends Mueller’s witch hunt

So why on Monday afternoon did special counsel Robert Mueller announce that former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort violate his plea deal by lying to the feds.

Just as a refresher Mueller’s team have a Manafort conviction on 8 counts of financial fraud that occurred prior to his involvement with the Trump campaign. He also took a plea agreement n September admitting to fraud and tax evasion over his lobbying work for a pro-Russian political party and politician in Ukraine. Again before being involved in the Trump campaign.

Part of the court filing from Monday stated: “After signing the plea agreement, Manafort committed federal crimes by lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Special Counsel’s Office on a variety of subject matters, which constitute breaches of the agreement,” Mueller’s team wrote in a 3-page filing.

No further information on what he lied about. The filing only stated that the lies would be revealed on a later date.

I’m not here to defend Manafort, who is a career political fixer and influencer, but I do question the timing of the filing.

It comes on the heels that Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker is about to release the FISA documents and ex-AG Loretta Lynch and ex-FBI chief James Comey are going to be brought in front of Congress to testify on actions pertaining to FISA court abuses. Only to be followed up by Federal prosecutor John Huber’s update to Congress on his probe into the Clinton Foundation.

These events scheduled for the beginning of next week should poke huge holes into Mueller’s working premise that the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians during the 2016 presidential election cycle.

What we can surmise from reports on the unredacted FISA documents is that the Democratic National Committee along with perhaps the Clinton Foundation provided funds to produce a report written by Christopher Steele with research help from Nellie Ohr (wife of DOJ staffer Bruce Ohr) and contributions from the British, Australian and New Zealand spy agencies (part of the Five Eyes program) to dupe the FISA court to get a warrant to spy on Trump campaign staffers and the Trump Tower offices.

Remember the first time the DOJ went before the court with Steele’s report the surveillance application was turned down. Only after the Obama Administration leaked the report to New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman and used her clippings as evidence that something was going on in the second application did the court issue the warrant.

So out of all this falsehood (and believe me I have only scratched the surface of this topic here) Robert Mueller is named special counsel by Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein in early 2017. And is it any wonder why we only see indictments and plea deals for actions that have occurred prior to the presidential campaign?

Between Whitaker and Huber we need to get the FISA documents out in the open for all to see and understand who the real colluders were. And it had nothing to do with the Russians, but everything to do with the Obama White House in cahoots with our “allies” to take down the Trump presidency.

Let’s see if the BOOMS come on Election Day

======================= SPECIAL SUNDAY POST ======================

Something is afoot as the midterm elections draw near.

Expected BOOMS have died on the vine as DOJ Asst. Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has further exhibited his nine lives. His sit down with President Trump on Air Force One and subsequent nixing of his Congressional panel testimony prove he surely has cards left in his hand to be played.

I have to assume through the continuing silence on Rosenstein from the White House the FISA declassification will not be used to taint the midterm election. My thought suggests that the parsing of all the information from declassifying the FISA documents would require a few weeks to decimate the impact of the news for general population.

You could not break the news with revelations that the Obama White House was aware and updated almost daily though intelligence briefings about the spying on a rival party presidential campaign and president-elect by using a Democratic Party oppositional report to allow the Clinton campaign to get espionage court to allow the FBI/CIA through our allies to spy on American citizens.

That scenario is just too much for a general population to wrap their heads around in two weeks. And given the divisiveness of the country, it would probably fall on deaf ears as partisan news organizations would couch the charges as a means just to sway the election.

No, indictments would need to be revealed with press conferences and perp walks to even register a blip on the radar of the national stage.

The time needed for all that has passed and the lack of communication from the administration has pretty much confirmed this theory.

I have to assume that Trump’s White House feels there is no need to muddy the waters even further, since their polling data shows the House and Senate are not in jeopardy at this time.

That’s what I take away from the lack of BOOMS prior to the election. The BOOMS will occur on Nov. 6.

 

Rosenstein has more than nine lives

Rod Rosenstein appears to have more lives within the FBI than any toothless cat roaming the streets of New York.

The question is why?

Is he a white hat ally of the Trump Administration, who is being set up to lure out other Obama era black hats into the trap?

Or is he one of the cabal, who did offer to wear a wire to gather evidence for a 25th Amendment case against Trump’s ability to hold office? Rosenstein denies this charge against him.

Trump had frozen Rosenstein out recently only to have a meeting on Air Force One with him on Monday. As Assistant Attorney General handling the Russian Dossier probe, it appears his time is short as evidence piles up that the actual collusion was between the Obama DOJ/FBI and Hillary Clinton’s campaign.

However Rosenstein was in the middle of all that and may have also signed off on a FISA application. He certainly knows all the players quite well including Former FBI Directors James Comey and Robert Mueller, who he assigned as a Special Council to probe the Trump Russia collusion case. Rosenstein also worked closely with Ex-AG Loretta Lynch and ex-AAG Sally Yates among others implicated in the 2016 Presidential election fraud.

So how does Rosenstein survive the purge? Or will he?

It is believed that the Presidential order to declassify the FISA warrant documents still sit on Rosenstein’s desk and has not made it up to the Director of National Intelligence’s office for approval. It is also reported that DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz has been tasked with approving the FISA docs release that sits on Rosenstein’s desk. But we are still waiting on that.

Of course with the release of these documents it is believed Rosenstein will be forced to resign since there is self-incriminating evidence contained within implicating him directly into the 2016 Presidential election fraud.

We shall see, but I believe this cat has more than nine lives.

Ex-FBI lawyer’s testimony confirms Democrats Russian collusion

Ex-FBI General Counsel James Baker in testimony confirms much of what I have written regarding senior Obama DOJ/FBI officials working with Clinton presidential campaign to spy on Trump campaign and the President-elect’s staff using fraudulent documents.

Baker’s was before the House Judiciary Committee behind closed doors on Wednesday as well as giving testimony to a grand jury impaneled by Utah-based federal prosecutor John Huber. Attorney General Jeff Sessions was in Salt Lake City, Utah on Wednesday.

The revelations in Baker’s testimony suggests that the Obama White House officials urged Loretta Lynch’s agency to work with at least one attorney from Perkins Cole the DNC/Clinton campaign law firm.

Perkins Cole was behind the hiring and creation of the Trump Dossier by Fusion/GPS and ex-British spy Christopher Steele.

Although the published report from The Hill does not disclose where this testimony came from, it is safe to assume that all investigative panels will have this same information in due course.

Sessions is scheduled to appear before the House Judiciary panel Thursday. While he had recused himself from the Dossier probe, it is believed he will receive documents during the questioning that will reveal the partisan plot to destroy the Trump presidency through nefarious Democratic actions.

Sessions will then be able to legally get involved in the dismantling of Special Counsel  Robert Mueller’s Trump/Russia collusion probe since its basic tenets were flawed.

Plenty of moving parts going on and I believe we will have a big reveal in the next week as the Republicans look to put the final nails into the Democrats coffin before the midterm elections in early November.

One last thing, be aware that there is a DOJ press event at 9:30am Thursday, just prior to Sessions’ testimony. Could Asst. Attorney General Rod Rosenstein be the topic? We’ll see.

Kavanaugh’s longest week puts FISA release on back burner

================== SPECIAL SUNDAY POSTING ===================

Don’t believe that the newest SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh/FBI probe will be done in a week.

This is but a prelude to a longer delay as the FBI will need more time to gather statements from secondary and tertiary individuals to back up each claim made by both Kavanaugh and his accuser Christine Blasey Ford.

Now we see why Trump was not too keen on meeting with Asst Attorney General Rod Rosenstein last week.

Rosenstein is overseeing the FBI in this matter and Director Christopher Wray will report to him on the findings. So in the world of 4-D chess a meeting with Rosenstein last week along with the release of the FISA documents would have thrown Kavanaugh under the bus this week.

While Sen Orrin Hatch has asked Wray to inform the White House council of any uncooperative witnesses in the probe, we will still see this investigation go into next week at the very least.

Why? To give the liberal media outlets more airtime to pound Kavanaugh for this and that, with the hope either he or the President will be forced to capitulate into pulling the nominee.

It’s shameful and a disgrace.
