Sally Yates Testifies She Has Never Been Questioned By FBI About Intelligence Leaks to Media…

On March 20th 2017 FBI Director James Comey testified before congress. There is only ONE KNOWN Factual and CRIMINAL activity currently identified: the unmasking and leaking of Mike Flynn’s name to the media. Everything else is political. FBI Director Comey testified his organization was “investigating” intelligence leaks. (link)

During congressional testimony today former acting Attorney General Sally Yates answered a direct question from Senator Chuck Grassley about whether or not she has been questioned by the FBI about intelligence leaks to media.

@01:20 of the video segment below:

Grassley: “Have any of you been questioned by the FBI about any leaks?”
Clapper: “Uh, I have not been”
Yates: “No”

.

How can FBI Director James Comey testify to congress the FBI has an open investigation into the source of the Flynn intelligence leaks on March 20th, and yet the primary person who controlled that leaked information, acting AG Sally Yates, testifies on May 8th she has never been questioned by the FBI about the leaks?

          I’m his 62 year old son, making his bed and watching the Senate circus.
          He is 84 and quit watching Fox 24/7 about 5 years ago.
          “What are you watching?” “Fox News ” I said.
          “Well put on it on my TV”, and I did.
          Clapper answered a question, “He’s lying.”
          Yates answered a question, “She’s lying.”
          He didn’t know who they were or what their importance was.
          My Dad has his mind still, but he lost his filter.

      I wish I was Senator for a day and on that committee. I have questions.

      “Ms. Yates”

      I would like to get on the record, what part of the Presidents executive order did you specifically considered un-Constitutional?

      Would you consider the travel bans, former Presidents Obama on 2 occasions and Carter one time, of countries also named by President Trump, were as un-Constitutional?
      All 3 of these travel bans were enacted when known terrorists had entered US as refugees, how was President Trump’s any different? He was Leary of the present vetting system of these countries. The security of this country is on his watch.

      Do you Ms. Yates consider your position is as important as the President’s on the matter of the security of American citizens?

      Do you think as a member of the DOJ, under former President Obama,the vetting of refugees was adequate to separate the refugees and terrorists who pretend to be, from terrorists that mean our country harm?

      Would you stake the lives of Americans on the system of vetting you over saw?

      If the vetting process was not under your responsibility, what makes President Trump’s actions on the same matter, your responsibility?

      You have judged a decorated General to be have committed crimes against our country without due process. Is that also within your power as acting DOJ?

        … and he’s off on a big jag about “hate crime”. I suggest he start with that 68-yr-old white woman attacked at the pool party yesterday.

        “We must do a better job of tracking and reporting hate crime to fully understand what’s happening in our communities and in our country so we can stop it,” he continued. “Some jurisdictions do not report hate crime data. Some say there were no hate crimes in their jurisdiction, which would be awesome if it were true. … It’s not something we can ignore, not something we can sweep under the rug, even though it’s painful.”

          Sounds like Comey wants “protection” from the anti-Trump left, so he’s virtue signaling as hard as he can.

          What Comey fails to understand is the sneaky communist truth that “coddling” and “sympathy” as a response to historic racism was never intended to fix the situation – it was designed to aggravate it into violent revolution. Comey fails to realize that treating blacks equally would have meant arresting his boss as surely as if she had been a white criminal. Equality means holding blacks to the same standards of respect AND expectation as everybody else.

          That’s where all the anger-porn slavery movies coming out of Hollywood truly give away the show. They are FEEDING the left’s last-chance hope of violent revolution. They aren’t trying to make whites respect blacks. They’re making blacks hate whites.

          The more Comey treats blacks sympathetically, the more he’s NOT treating them respectfully, as fellow Americans.

          Notice during his hearing one of the FBI accomplishments he had to crow about was uncovering who was behind all those JCC bomb threats that the MSM dutifully reported as Trump inspired and HRC came out of the woods to chastise Trump about.
          While Mr. Comey colorfully regaled how horrible these “hate crimes” were and how important it was for the FBI to crack these cases, he never mentioned the two perpetrators were a leftie Anti-Trump journalist and a anti-Trump leftie Jewish teenager.

    The only way I can explain Trump’s failure togo hard against Obama and his people is that he’s waiting to calibrate the blows with the mid term elections.

    If what is coming out almost daily now is true, we’re talking about an unprecedented domestic espionage scheme involving Obama’s key people, but also implicating Dems in Congress. If Trump holds all the cards, he has a reasonable chance of effectively destroying the Democratic Party.

    If he plays his hand now, the Dems/MSM complex will use every trick in the book to.minimize the impact. However if he times everything to drop (say) 2 weeks out from election day, it will be too.late for.the Dems to wriggle out.

        The clownshow we are seeing in these hearings is frustrating to watch, but is useful to Trump. It builds public disgust with the swamp and will ensure public approval & support when Trump decides to go after these people outside the Congress.

        At the end of the day he only has a few options : 1. Do nothing – doubtful. 2. One massive hit – multiple arrests on one day, done in a very public way to maximize damage 3. Selective hits done sequentially (eg one a week) – this may be the most effective, but he will need to get going soon.

        It would be fascinating to know what is going on behind the scenes. I’d assume Bannon & Nunes have quite a few whistleblowers who have come forward. It would be worth them being patient, so the cases are absolutely watertight, esp if they are close to nailing Obama himself.

        Of course there’s always the possibility that Trump has nothing and is bluffing. I’d rate that as a very low possibility, though – I am pretty sure he has a lot of extremely incriminating evidence, given the very aggressive tweets etc.

      “emails have headers” but according to research by George Webb the network was set up with blackberry servers that synced all 19 and Anthony Weiner’s laptop so that anytime an email was sent/received the blackberry devices and other devices on their network received the same information. George published the SS#’s of several involved and has Andrew McCabe right where he needs to be just before the lid blows, I believe.

        Thanks much, judyw, that sounds much deeper than the relatively superficial article I posted.

        I haven’t watched the video yet, but from your statements about the server setup, I think I understand that it would have routed emails to all members included in a particular defined group, so that the simple From: and To: routing presumed for a given email is no longer true or necessary.

        If so, that may indicate that Comey is ignorant of that distinction when he claims Huma forwarded to Wiener.

        Either Huma forwarded explicitly to Wiener, as Comey portrays, or Wiener’s computer received emails as a server-defined broadcast to a bunch of recipients, as I think the George Web description is portraying.

        If the former, then Comey’s claim is acceptable at face value. If the latter is true, that would suggest that Comey is unaware of the distinction, the server auto-routing of emails out to a group of addresses.

        If true and if Comey is indeed ignorant of that, it doesn’t speak very highly of “Mr Ongoing Investigation”.

        That investigation don’t amount to much if the highest law-enforcement investigator in the land isn’t more up-to-speed than that.

          IMO Comey would know of this auto-routing capability. He is the top spook at a top investigatory spook agency. I believe Comey also knows that most people aren’t knowledgeable in auto-routing of emails; therefore, he can answer questioning without taking that aspect into account. Just play dumb as some of the questioners who were didn’t know of this aspect.

          Where are those darn Awan brothers when congress needs their IT expertise to brief those concritters before the hearing?

            Yeah, I’d think so too. If so, however, that means Comey intentionally misrepresented the situation in Congressional testimony. From the Breitbart article I posted:

            KENNEDY: OK. Was there classified information on – on former Congressman Weiner’s computer?
            COMEY: Yes.

            KENNEDY: Who sent it to him?
            COMEY: His then spouse, Huma Abedin, appears to have had a regular practice of forwarding e-mails to him, for him I think to print out for her so she could then deliver them to the Secretary of State.

            Aside –
            ** What,. they don’t have printers at the office? **
            That excuse is ludicrous no matter who’s making it.

          When George Webb broke the server story it made it all make sense to me. Although illegal, it is a brilliant use of technology to bypass the regular method of transferring data between computers which leaves “fingerprints of to/from” and plausible deniability they are all currently using of “somehow this happened”. sssshhhssh! And you are so right in they can speak to the low level of understanding of technology that most people have.
          Remember in the beginning “no classified information” then “no information marked classified”…..

          These blackberry devices were not issued by the State Department. The Awan brothers who have been working in the U S government traveling back and forth from Pakistan since the 90’s with high level security clearances and who have off site servers of their own set this up for Hillary. They are considered very powerful in U S politics by their home country and are escorted by security when they are there.

          A Marine lives in one of the twelve houses owned by the Awans reported to George that when he moved in there was a pile of laptops and a pile of blackberry devices with government markings someone left behind. He also reported this to FBI.

          Comey knows all of this and what was found on Weiner’s laptop by NYPD is the core of all that’s compromised those DC swamp dwellers who will never see the light of another day when it breaks.

            “… a brilliant use of technology to bypass the regular method of transferring data between computers which leaves “fingerprints of to/from” and plausible deniability they are all currently using of “somehow this happened”. ”

            And so I’d wager that there were back doors set up so Mo Brotherhood could listen in as well, that was the speculation about Hillary’s server when that story was first going around. The Awan Brothers being perhaps the most recent facilitators to be caught in the news, but likely predecessors as well – pipelines for getting America’s classified information out into the favored hands of such denizens as ValJar and Barky.

      “How big was influence of Huma Abedin’s family?”
      ‘It’s so egregious how they think they can just get away with abusing the system’

      A prominent Washington watchdog group has filed a request with the U.S. State Department for copies of all communications between former Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin and members of her family now under federal indictment as part of an investigation into what it suspects is a major “influence-peddling” operation.

      As deputy chief of staff for former Secretary of State Clinton, Abedin agreed to arrange State Department meetings with business partners of her first cousin, who is now under federal indictment for fraud. The partners scored at least $1.3 million in federal grant money, as WND first reported last week.

      “Influence-peddling is putting it nicely,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said, adding that the deal “warrants further investigation.”

      http://www.wnd.com/2017/05/how-big-was-influence-of-huma-abedins-family/

      Influence peddling, sure. Spying, ditto. Conduit for info about operations in Libya, facilitating the overthrow of Mubarak, that’s a whole different order of crime.

    Unless you believe PDJT was just kidding when he said that at the debate.

    We’re dealing with lazy, sloppy, arrogant people who WILL slip up. All it takes is one and the cascade begins. But they also have a lot of power, and the judiciary is corrupted so it takes time to lineup enough hard evidence and good judges to begin the drainage. This isn’t done in 18 months.

    If the President went after Hillary out of the gate, he would have lost. Patience.

    In the exchange between Cruz and Yates, Cruz cites USC 1182. But before reading that portion of the law to her, she says she’s not familiar with it. This is PERJURY. We can see that because she rebuts Cruz’s recitation of 1182 with her prepared reading of 1152 and claims that 1152 supercedes 1182. So she claims no familiarity with it then rebuts with a prepared reading of the copy of 1152.

    That’s a problem. But it’s worse and more stupid than that. 1182 covers presidential discretion powers over ENTRY into the US. 1152 covers State Department policy limitations. The President is not a member of the state department and he does not approve or deny visa applications. He may, as 1182 states, DENY ENTRY.

    USC 1152 does not cover presidential discretion powers. It covers the state department’s limits on visa processing.

Just one day the country got confused, communism was repackaged, relabeled, Americans voted for a man with a secret background, and the media hyped him because he was good at reading from a teleprompter. Presto, President Obama, etc.

        So, here we are in this alternate universe, and there is no waking up from it. Somewhere though I am hoping someone finds the big switch and flips it back from evil to good.

Hopefully this would give PDJT and the DOJ a start in overturning POTUS’ ban that was twice stopped by the 9th! He is doing all he can to protect us, and if these judge’s unconstitutional rulings result in injuries or death of Americans on our shores, I pray they will be held personally responsible! (But unfortunately I realize given most gov entities “governmental immunity act” protections, doing so may be difficult to reach the burden of proof required to hold them PERSONALLY responsible. At the local level I’ve seen it happen, so there is a glimmer of hope!)

    At 3:11:00 Mr Whitehouse goes into which allegations Clapper can verify. (He claims to be able to verify the top three.)
    1) Propaganda, Fake News, Trolls and Bots.
    2) Hacking and Theft of political information
    3) Timed leaks of damaging information
    1) Sounds like CNN, CBS, MSNBC and David “AstroTurf” Axelrod
    2) The FBI was not allowed to examine the DNC server, so hacking and theft cannot be verified
    3) Timed leaks have been around for decades. We now call them the October surprise.
    4) Odd they should mention Seth Rich
    These people are blaming Russia for the exact things Obama did in the Israeli elections and probably elsewhere. Why is it OK for us to do what we condemn the Russian for doing?
