The Biggest Political Scandal The Media is Missing – It Should Lead To Congressional Leadership Censure…

Everyone is so caught up with their discussion of President Trump around the firing of FBI Director James Comey that they are completely overlooking the most explosive scandal in the history of congress.

This scandal, if exposed, should remove, or at least censure: Paul Ryan, Nancy Pelosi, Mitch McConnell, Chuck Schumer, Dianne Feinstein, Richard Burr, Devin Nunes, Adam Schiff and Mark Warner.

The absence of their accountability shows the depth of corruption within Washington DC.

First, understand their job – Each of the aforementioned was/is part of the congressional intelligence oversight called the “Gang of Eight“. The Go8 are exclusively responsible for overseeing all intelligence community activity as it relates to intelligence gathering and corresponding investigations.

In short these eight elected representatives are in charge of all oversight of all U.S. intelligence operations and investigations.  As elected representatives, they represent one of the most important checks within the system of government overseeing non-elected officials.

Again, we refer back to the March 20th testimony of FBI Director James Comey where he is questioned by Freshman Representative Elise M. Stefanik.

Stefanik is a young, freshman republican congresswoman from the Albany New York area.  And using a probative questioning timeline, she single-handily pulled the mask from FBI Director James Comey, and exposed the corruption within the Gang-of-Eight yet no-one seems to notice.

In the segment of the questioning below Rep. Stefanik begins by asking director Comey what are the typical protocols, broad standards and procedures for notifying the Director of National Intelligence, the White House and senior congressional leadership (aka the intelligence Gang of Eight), when the FBI has opened a counter-intelligence investigation.

The response from Comey is a generalized reply (with uncomfortable body language) that notification of counter-intel investigations are discussed with the White House, and other pertinent officials, on a calendar basis, ie. “quarterly”.

With the statement that such counter-intel notifications happen “generally quarterly”, and against the backdrop that Comey stated in July of 2016 a counter-intel investigation began, Stefanik asks:

…”when did you notify the White House, the DNI and congressional leadership”?

Everything happens in the first three minutes of that questioning.  Against the backdrop to what you know now about Director James Comey’s investigation which began in July 2016, let’s unpack the response.

Director Comey said he informed the DNI (James Clapper), White House National Security Council (Susan Rice), and the DOJ who would have been his boss acting Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates (head of counter intelligence operations).   He DID NOT notify congress.

Again, review that 2:49 second Q & A segment.

Director Comey is admitting to congress that for eight months he did not tell them about the counterintelligence investigation “because of the sensitivity of the matter“.

From his own testimony Director Comey admits he coordinated with: Susan Rice (White House), James Clapper (DNI) and Sally Yates (DOJ Counter-Intel).  However, Comey also admits he intentionally did not tell congressional oversight.  EVER.

The people within congress who SHOULD HAVE BEEN notified of the counterintelligence operation are the ‘Gang-of-Eight’: (Ryan, Pelosi, McConnell, Schumer, Nunes, Schiff, Burr and Feinstein/Warner) [*note Warner replaced Feinstein in ’17].

Director Comey is openly admitting to beginning an intelligence operation/investigation in July 2016 and intentionally not notifying congress until March 2017.  In essence, he is completely operating without oversight.

However, did you hear a single member of the Gang of Eight raise objection to this stunning revelation?

Comey is admitting to keeping the Go8 in the dark.  Comey is admitting to intentionally acting without oversight.  Did a single member of the Go8 call for his removal?  Did they protest this action?  Did they demand to know why he felt empowered to violate the checks-and-balances?

NO.

Not a single member of the oversight Gang of Eight raised an eyebrow after this testimony.  Why?

What is the purpose of oversight when the people doing the oversight don’t care if a non-elected official can operate independent of oversight?

Answer those questions and you can see the depth of the swamp.

This is a much bigger issue than President Trump firing James Comey.  This reality represents the structural collapse of a primary function of government.

Here’s where it gets interesting.  Pay close attention to the names and actions by congressional leadership as they respond to Director James Comey’s firing.

Nunes and Shiff are the head of the House Permanent Committee on Intelligence.  Burr and Warner are the heads of the Senate Intelligence Committee.  Ryan and Pelosi are the heads of the House.  McConnell and Schumer are the heads of the Senate.

The group functions as the Gang-of-Eight as a result of their position in congress and on the oversight committees.   Yet it would appear they held no active interest in oversight of FBI Director James Comey’s intelligence activity.

Why is that?

Tell me again about how the UniParty doesn’t exist.

    If I were the President, I would invite all 8 to the WH and share the fantastic news below:

    Could things get any better? Aetna just announced they are pulling out of their final 2 states; Delaware and Nebraska!

    From the article link below:

    Health insurer Aetna Inc said on Wednesday it will exit the 2018 Obamacare individual insurance market in Delaware and Nebraska – the two remaining states where it offered the plans.

    Insurers Humana Inc and UnitedHealth Group Inc have also pulled out of most of the government subsidized individual health insurance market.

    “This decision is not a surprise given continued uncertainty about market stability and whether cost-sharing subsidies will continue to flow,” Evercore ISI analyst Michael Newshel said in an investor research note.

    He noted that only one health plan remains in both Delaware, where Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield sells Obamacare coverage, and Nebraska, where Medica still offers coverage but has warned it may exit the program.

    https://www.yahoo.com/news/aetna-exit-delaware-nebraska-individual-insurance-markets-213435530–finance.html

    He can tell all 8 that they have until December 31, 2017 to pass a repeal and replace bill that allows Phase 3 to be incorporated into the new bill, approval of his 2018 budget using the appropriations process and his tax reform bill approved for his signature. Failure to do so will have them eradicated along with ISIS!

    Winning!

    Guys, impeachment is not available for removal from Congress, as I read it.

    The way to remove Senators and Congressmen is:
    1. Resignation
    2. Vooted out by constituents
    3. Expulsion by the body (details in Wikipedia here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Expulsion_from_the_United_States_Congress )

    Impeachment is only available for Congress to use as a tool to remove members of the executive or judiciary. Expulsion is probably not an option due to the power of the Gang of 8.

    We will have to mount a campaign to vote them out, which means that we will need primary candidates for the GOP of exceptional character and fortitude. We will be fighting various state political machines who will not want a challenger.

    The other alternative would be if there are actual criminal charges which could be brought against these people. Pretty hard to serve from a federal pen.

      A citizen can submit a complaint against House members to the Office of Congressional Ethics regarding issues as listed by SD. It would possibly be failure to perform their fiduciary duty to enforce oversite of FBI Dir.Comey as directed by the purpose of the Go* committee…blah, blah, blah.

      Keep it very simple. Short. Concise. Summarize in one paragraph what SD has outlined.

      Submit complaint to the OCE. Probably can do it on-line.

      If enough people did this, it certainly would give notice to House members on Go8 they failed to do their duty. There must be a similar procedure for Senate members.

          Mark, Thanks.
          Look down thread re: Sen Ron Wyden…I posted a link to The Code of Ethics For Government Service. That link could be enclosed as supporting evidence, but pick 1-2 specific ethics violated, but I personally would absolutely list “breach of fiduciary duty as the primary ethical offense.”

          Each elected official has a fiduciary duty to We The Citizen, but in this instance they each breached their fiduciary duty in the capacity of being a member of the Oversight Comm.

          I think their oath of office is just to uphold the constitution. That’s too broad, imo.

          Problem with the senators’ Ethics Comm. (re: the Go8 guys), their Ethics Committee is compiled of Senators. Policing ones own is usually fruitless, but I believe this would be an eye opener for both committees to receive complaints on all Go8 people.

          What’s it hurt?

          You could compose one basic paragraph and just insert the applicable Go* name and submit to the applicable Ethics committee.

          I doubt anything will be done, but it would certainly make people take notice.

So he just played the putz and blocked Trump with just enough passive-aggressiveness to stay in good with Cankles, but to both annoy Trump and quietly feed him rope around his own neck, until Trump had enough on him to fire him / set him free.

        • wolfmoon1776 says:

          I hear you. It is rather inconceivable. So let me say this in Comey’s *potential* defense.

          First of all, most people are not willing to write off family members, so if there were threats, who knows? Very few love God more than their own blood. Not only that – there is an enormous amount of critical literature that chides, mocks, and denigrates people of such faith. It pains me to read it, too. “Abraham the nut-case child abuser.” UGH.

          For every one of us who admires the Signers for risking their “lives, fortunes, and sacred honor”, there are ten progs who think it’s ridiculous, and five conservatives who think family comes first, when push comes to shove.

          So I generally don’t expect people to stand up to threats and intimidation, past a certain point. Comey was very likely under a lot of pressure. A LOT.

          And if Comey realized that standing up would fail for sure, then discretion might still have been the better part of valor.

          But beyond that, there could be yet another explanation. Comey may have been playing the “bad martyr”. That is the worst role of all – when only God knows your innocence. It’s the ultimate informant – the one who everybody thinks is a creep until long after they’re gone, and maybe forever.

          An example, IMO, is the FBI informant who was near Martin Luther King, Jr. Today, everybody thinks he was a creep and a traitor. But what if, by helping the FBI know that King wasn’t fully selling out to the communists, he reassured them, and actually helped “stay the hand” of the forces that were trying to stop King? Nobody would know that he served a key role of defending King’s vision – they would always think he betrayed it. And God works through many people – even those who we don’t expect, or who appear to be working against His purpose.

          So, I think it helps to keep a little forgiveness in the mix, just in case there’s stuff we don’t understand, which is actually kinda likely.

          And I see parallels to that, in the way Christ didn’t single out any of his disciples as faithful or betrayers, but in fact had sympathy for them all, as his most faithful rock denied him, and his betrayer had true regret.

          So ultimately, I think Comey is rightly being fired with cause, for the betterment of government. But I will leave a certain amount of faith open to the possibility that Comey was a conscious part of that effort to bring about betterment of government, even if that role is not known for a long, long, long time – or maybe never.

    There’s another revelation from Comeys firing. It showed that the leaking problem may now be resolved. No one expected it. Now the left want a special prosecutor so they can broaden the range of their investigative powers. It’s literally how they brought rapist bill down and led to impeachment although he still finished his term. They are all aware that the Russians and Trump were not in cahoots and have been stuck sifting through the lives of those around him, hoping to find connections that simply aren’t there. I only say they arnt there because I’ve watched the hearings and have not seen anyone who actually matters in all this say they had something conclusive. Yet each week there’s something new posted claiming impeachment is imminent. Let’s be real, the “wiretaps” that focused literally on Russian spys yielded ZERO impeachment worthy intel. So the only logical next step for those who want to impeach him is to get that Special Prosecutor power. Although the original intent of the investigation will be on Russian collusion. The charges brought in the end will be completely different. So they are foaming at the mouth to be able to have full access to investigate Trump to hopefully find something else to bring him down. I don’t think they would find anything but the original intent of william rape clintons special prosecutor had nothing to do with Lewinskys relations but that entire scandal was a direct result of the investigation. All the while, Trump has overcome his internal leaking problem and paved the way for law and order to finally take place.

    This is one way to get people interested and aggravated at these creeps.

    This is now longer about hacking emails. It is now what they always wanted it to be. An endless investigation, a fishing expedition to treat anything and everything related to Trump and his campaign as sinister in order to take him down. And these guys think that if they use fancy and nonsensical phrases like “find out how Russia undermined our democracy”, it gives them the cover and excuse they need.

  31. Seems to me that the Dems and Rinos are parcelling out these stages of investigation, so that they can prolong the finish of the whole mess shortly before the 2018 elections, so that Trump’s backers can not win so easily. If they bring it all to the conclusion too soon and it turns out to be proven bullsh-t, then they are the ones who will loses seats. They are playing with fire, but what else do they have?

      Sen. King is an embarrassment. The only thing he accomplished was introducing a bill for funding for the Zika virus. There’s none of that in Maine yet. Doesn’t he know that the Zika virus was brought here by illegal immigrants and people who have sex with illegal immigrants? At least Susan Collins is not calling for a special prosecutor yet. King and Collins are all over TV talking about how bipartisan they are. What a disgrace. I thought that when I left NJ (Booker and Menendez), I would finally have decent senators. Boy was I wrong. RINOs. King is actually an independent who caucuses with the Republicans. He is more Democrat than Republican. Thank God I am in the 2nd congressional district which voted for President Trump.

    The argument that the FBI director cannot be fired by the POTUS has been debunked by legal minds (see my post at 8:12 pm, above) and corroborated by James Comey himself (see Pam’s post at 8:21 pm, above). What else will the DemoRats, RINOs and nevertrumpers come up with now to show us beyond any doubt that they are crooks?

    Bill and Loretta Lynch meet on tarmac

    July 2-2016
    Comey meets with Clinton for 3.5 hours about the email investigation.

    July 5-2016
    Comey gives a scathing case to prosecute Ms Clinton for 14 minutes before recommending no charges

    July 7-2016
    Comey testifies that Hillary was not put under oath during their July 2 meeting and that there was no transcript of their meeting.

    July ??-2016
    Still unsure of this date but if I’m not mistaken this was the first FISA warrant hearing for Trump surveillance. Via Carter Page? Before the RNC Convention setup by State Dept for a meeting with the Russian diplomat. The “sponsor” was The Heritage Foundation but this actually was an event that was organized and scheduled by State not by Heritage. This was part of another FISA setup.

    The only logical conclusion is that when Comey met with Clinton at her home is when he received the Dossier!!! He met with her to strategize not to talk about an investigation. Comey agreed to have the optics of a highly publicized meeting with Clinton on that date in a private residence not under oath and without anyone else present. The investigation was already agreed to have a certain ending on the tarmac a week before (at the very latest) and they used the optics of this meeting (which was filmed from helicopters in transit) to discuss surveillance and FISA warrants in exchange for Comey being able to give the press conference that made no sense on the 5th. Comey was terrified of how he’d look after the tarmac meeting so he struck a deal with Clinton.

    BINGO! You nailed it, SD. Thank you!

    Stefanik: “So why didn’t you notify oversight of this?”
    Comey: “Because of the sensitivity of the matter..”
    Question that should have been asked: “Who decides when matters are too sensitive to notify oversight?”
    Comey: “uh.. me..”
    Next question that shoulda been asked: “how many other matters are too sensitive to notify oversight about?”
    Comey: “uh… none I promise!”

    What did we get?

    This IS from GotNews but . . .who knows?

    A new report claims that Trump not only fired Comey to send a message to McCain, but that Trump kept the news of his decision to fire Comey from Reince Priebus and Press Secretary, Sean Spicer to avoid leaks to the press.

    President Donald J. Trump fired now-former FBI Director James Comey to send a message to Senator John McCain, sources close to the White House confirm. Comey’s firing is a direct rebuke to McCain’s control over the nation’s defense, White House staffers confirm.

    Earlier this year, McCain went after Trump with widely discredited opposition research that he immediately shared with Comey, his longtime friend.

    Comey worked with McCain to go after businessman Jack Abramoff after Abramoff stopped McCain from winning the Republican Primary in 2000.

    McCain has since been working with FBI Director Comey to help undermine President Trump since Trump was elected.

    There’s a method to McCain’s madness, as McCain has used his position as chairman on the U.S. Senate Armed Services to veto Trump’s national defense picks.

    “McCain has shot down two offers for Army Secretary from Trump,” our source notes.
    McCain has been a persistent nuisance ever since Trump announced his candidacy in 2015.

    The FBI firing move, which did not leak, was carried out by White House counsel Don McGahn and Attorney General Jeff Sessions. President Trump deliberately kept Reince Priebus and Sean Spicer in the dark to keep them from leaking.

    Barack Obama (and the Clinton Machine) used the powers of the federal government to illegally influence an ongoing U.S. presidential election. That rumor is nothing new – and a great deal of evidence has already been leaked to indicate it is in fact true. Now another layer of credible evidence has been added to this blockbuster scenario. U.S. intelligence experts are stating that former FBI Director James Comey is believed to have been aiding in the cover up of that massive scandal and that is the primary reason for his sudden firing.

    The Comey-directed FBI was apparently and quite purposefully slow-walking the investigation into the unmasking scandal that had U.S. government intelligence agencies during the Obama era illegally gathering data against political opponents – namely those related to the then Trump presidential campaign.

    As for the oft-repeated Trump/Russia connection? It remains non-existent and nothing more than a smokescreen distraction to divert attention away from a sitting president’s (Obama) historic illegal use of federal power to interfere in a presidential election that would determine his presidential successor – interference that likely had the full blessing/support and cooperation of Mr. Obama’s approved successor and former Secretary of State – Hillary Clinton.

    That is the real scandal that is simmering beneath the slime of D.C.’s feet. It is a scandal with tentacles connecting a myriad of very significant and longtime political and media power players.

    Don’t expect the Establishment to easily reveal this truth. That is for each of you to make it be known far and wide.
