    https://www.crowdstrike.com/shawn-henry/

    Sundance and fellow Treepers…I don’t know if others are aware of this guy…I just stumbled on him. I think it may be useful to look into Shawn Henry further. He is president of Crowdstrike, AND A FORMER ASSISTANT DIRECTOR OF THE FBI, and now an NBC News consultant. Sure would be interesting to learn of his relationship to Comey. It might explain Comey’s glowing praise for Crowdstrike during his testimony. Also troublesome that FBI never inspected DNC servers but relied on the report of Crowdstrike as to muh-“Russia hacking”.

    Maybe Henry is a personal friend of Comey’s if they worked at FBI together. Conflict of interest much? Need to dig further but wanted to get this out to my fellow Treepers to advance the research.

      And this is officially the reason that he was fired by President Trump. Sessions said, in his letter, “the Director of the FBI must be someone who follows faithfully the rules and principles of the Depart of Justice and who sets the right example for our law enforcement officials and others in the Department”

      So looks like he leaked, colluded with the Clinton campaign and continued to do so after the Trump Administration and after he was fired. Wow!!!

        I agree Katherine. Comey was fired because he didn’t do his job. He wanted people to think that he had something on President Trump to distract from his own failure. He deserves to be held accountable for colluding with, and covering for Clinton and many others and obstructing justice.

    good read excerpt below;

    Here’s how it works. The FBI ‘suspects’ someone may be an extremist (they are Muslim, or at least look like). They pose as another Muslim and start to engage in a conversation about making a ‘plot’ such as a ‘bomb’ – but at the last moment, arrest the entrapped individual. This accomplishes a few things, one – they can make a long list of cases ‘solved’ that would have otherwise become terrorist attacks (they are working hard for their 8 Billion budget). Two, it scares the population that the threat of terrorism is ‘real’ (when in reality, you are more likely to be struck by lightning than to be attacked by a terrorist). This is reinforced by the media ‘terrorism terrorism terrorism’.

    The paradoxical question here is – left to their own would these potential ‘terrorists’ have committed any acts of terror, or not? Of course, foiling a crime before it happens is always ideal. But at what point does entrapment become ‘encouragement’ – we’re not talking about drug dealing here, terrorism is a serious thing (people can be killed).

    But defense lawyers, Muslim leaders and civil liberties advocates say that F.B.I. operatives coax suspects into saying and doing things that they might not otherwise do — the essence of entrapment.“They’re manufacturing terrorism cases,” said Michael German, a former undercover agent with the F.B.I. who researches national security law at New York University’s Brennan Center for Justice. In many of the recent prosecutions, he said, “these people are five steps away from being a danger to the United States.”

      I understand your concern, and generally I am against law enforcement using entrapment.
      But…I view anyone that can be talked into a terrorist act as someone who should be in prison or deported.

      It’s quite a bit different than impersonating a prostitute to arrest a john, or offering to sell drugs to someone to bust them. That sort of entrapment might make a criminal out of someone who wasn’t planning to break the law.

      Offering to help someone to build a bomb to blow up innocent people? If they take the FBI up on that offer, they are dangerous people,

      Just my take on it,

          What we do with our reprieve depends upon how well we’ve learned our lesson and how willing we are to keep everyone’s feet to the fire. The number of people who wish America’s defeat is staggering. But the pushback has begun. Thank God and thanks to President Donald Trump. We dare not fail.

Fast and Furious was a concerted plot at the highest levels of our government to subvert our 2nd Amendment. The crimes committed by Obama and the enabling injustice of non-coverage by the media should be the biggest story/scandal in modern western democracy.

        I’m confused by the Senate’s grandstanding, as this apparently deals with a LAW passed in 1995 – Trump simply signed a waiver (like every other president to date) to delay implementation of that law.

        If they want things to change, they should change the law to remove the waiver power?

        “The Jerusalem Embassy and Recognition Act, passed by Congress in 1995, requires the U.S. to move its embassy to Jerusalem. But it gives the president the power to waive the law for six months at a time, something every president has done since the 1990s.”

    Fox New Waters’ World-CLAPPER
    Clapper express this week that Watergate pales in Comparison to the Russia Investigation; even though there is no evidence.

    Maybe Clapper is trying to cover himself; since Grand Juries Investigations will find the paper trail of alleged illegal unmasking’s and other Corruptions within the Department of National Intelligence… explaining he broke the Laws because the Russians were coming. Clapper has also committed perjury while testifying in front of the Senate Committee.

    I believe a title wave of evidence of all the alleged Treason/Sedition/Espionage/Perjury and Corruption over the past 8-years is about to happen…everyday there are New Stories of illegal acts that occurred over the past 8-years. We all see it…the entire Country sees it…like Comey waking up in the middle of the night…the left must be waking up also…they are nervous…the left (Media) will double-up with their Fake News…they have no choice.
