    Former assistant director of the FBI James Kallstrom said Sunday he believes there’s a “Fifth Column conspiracy” in the bureau determined to destroy President Donald Trump — and may have committed a “serious felony” in doing so.

    In an interview aired Sunday with radio host John Catsimatidis on “The Cats Roundtable” on 970 AM in New York, Kallstrom said those trying to undercut the bureau from within are a small group.

    “Ninety-nine percent of the people in the FBI are doing a fantastic job,” he said. “It’s a small cabal of people running the FBI, the James Comey sycophants.”

    Kallstrom called the development “a nasty thing to be watching… people in the FBI getting very political, not basing their [work] on the rule of law or protecting the American public.”

    “I’m coming more and more to the conclusion that this is a conspiratorial cabal among the fifth column to basically take away the presidency of the United States,” he said.

    “This whole thing with Russia is just a farce,” he said, adding: “If we find out that that phony [Russian dossier] was brought to the U.S. Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court] in the form of an affidavit for a judge’s authority, and if we find out that the people signing that affidavit in the bureau knew that that was phony information, that is a serious serious felony.”

    ” A Louisiana private investigator pleaded guilty on Monday to misusing Donald Trump’s Social Security number in repeated attempts to access the president’s federal tax information before his election last year.

    Jordan Hamlett, 32, faces a maximum sentence of five years in prison and a $250,000 fine following his guilty plea in federal court.

    Authorities have said Hamlett failed in his attempts to get Trump’s tax information through a US Department of Education financial aid website.”

      “A court document accompanying Hamlett’s plea agreement says he used Trump’s Social Security number and other personal information to open an online application for federal student aid on Sept. 13, 2016. After obtaining a username and password, he tried to use an Internal Revenue Service data retrieval tool to obtain Trump’s tax information, the document says.

      ‘The defendant made six separate attempts to obtain the federal tax information from IRS servers, but he was unsuccessful,’ says the document. It doesn’t specify how much of Trump’s tax information could have been retrieved with the online tool.”

      Must have been a pretty big payoff he was expecting in order for him to do something so foolhardy.

      Five years or five minutes can be mighty terrifying for a cell block newbie. Whoever hired him won’t be requesting inclusion on the visitor’s list…his family will, though. And they’ll feel the terror and the shame brought upon their name by their criminal relative every time they hear that metal door clanging closed behind them.

      Was it worth it, Hamlett?

      The headline is biased: “misusing” Trump’s SSN, as though this criminal had the right to do whatever he wanted with it, but stepped out of line.

      Funny, how it’s OK to invade Trump’s legally-protected personal information, but it was treasonous trying to find out Obama information that is normally public record.

      If someone had done this to Obama, the media would be screaming 24/7 about “invasion of privacy” and “misconduct,” and calling for his head on a platter.

        Yup, not to mention that he stole President Trump’s identity by actually applying for federal aid with his social security #. That’s the definition of Fraud. They’re saying he faces 5 years, it ought to be even more stiff than that. 5 should be the minimum to knowingly steal somebody’s information and then use it for fraud, especially when it’s someone you know (not personally, but he knew who he was hurting).

          My take during the primary campaigning was that Hannity preferred Cruz, but he also gave candidate Trump several important airings. I think Hannity played reasonably fair to all candidates so as not to alienate the eventual nominee. Towards the end of the primaries, when it was down to two, when Cruz was on Hannity really liked Cruz. When Trump was on he really liked Trump.

          My impression back then was that Hannity was just a ‘Never Dem, Never Hillary’ guy. Still is, come to think of it. And also… why alienate half his listeners by picking one or the other?

          That’s just my recollection and interpretation. Feel free to present your own recollections if they differ from mine.

    For all you people willing to wager, I am taking any and all bets. I predict within one week, Mueller will indict on a process charge both Jared Kushner and Hope Hicks. It will be done just to tweak the President and goad him into firing Mueller. Any takers?

      Why would he fire Mueller when Mueller’s team is collapsing on itself? There’s no credibility – let the rest of them out themselves.
      If Trump takes Any action toward Mueller’s team he would only feed the msm narrative – he’s not that dumb. Much more effective to let the IG bring it all into the sunlight.

      Flynn made the mistake of consenting to an interview without a lawyer present. Neither Kushner nor Hicks would have made that mistake, or at least I highly doubt they would have. An attorney present would greatly diminish the risk of committing these petty “process crimes” IMO.

    EXCLUSIVE – The man who says he acted as a “go-between” last year to inform Sen. John McCain about the controversial “dossier” containing salacious allegations about then-candidate Donald Trump is speaking out, revealing how the ex-British spy who researched the document helped coordinate its release to the FBI, the media and Capitol Hill.

      well well well – Senator McCain, care to expound?

      “Along with the senator, Wood and McCain Institute for International Leadership staffer David J. Kramer attended the Canadian conference.

      British court records state McCain ordered Kramer to get a personal briefing from Steele in Surrey, just outside of London, and then return to Washington, D.C., where Fusion GPS would provide McCain with hard copies.

      In January, McCain officially gave the dossier to the FBI, which already had its own copy from Steele.

      Of note, listed in the official program for the 2016 November Canadian conference as a participant was Rinat Akhmetshin — the same Russian lobbyist who was at Trump Tower five months earlier in June for a highly scrutinized meeting with Donald Trump Jr. and others.

      Trump has, in my opinion, completely proved he didn’t do any of this crap using common sense like this picture.

      My favorite? One girl said he grabbed her in a club, after sitting next to her for 10 minutes. Trump said that could not have happened, because he’s never been in a club by himself!

      That kind of common sense rings true with me. It makes sense to me that a famous billionaire is never alone in a club. He makes a great point. It couldn’t have happened like she said. It’s impossible he was alone in a club, he’s famous, he’s worth 10 billion dollars, if she says he was sitting by himself for 10 minutes in a club she’s full of crap.

      I’ve never seen somebody so effortlessly defend himself against allegations like this.

      • I’ve got two favorites.
        The woman on the plane. And the one at the NY Open.

        According to one, Trump the billionaire drove his own car to the Open and left alone.
        The person parking cars that day in the VIP section was alone and left people standing around wondering where he was as he left to get someones car.
        I guess Trump couldn’t afford a drive that day and decided it was a better plan to sit in bumper to bumper traffic on his way back to the world from Queens.

        The other one is just as ridiculous. He flew alone on a plane. And in front of all those people she and him, total strangers, started kissing and touching. Her first reports were she was fine with all of that until he tried to then slide his hand under her dress.
        That was where she drew the line.

        They’re all stupid stories about events that defy logic.

    There’s talk about outing a bunch of Congressional sex miscreants. Likely lots of Republicans from Dem-governor states, to reduce the GOP majority, if not reverse it.

    Just as Congress is about to pass a tax cut that looks as thougb it will eliminate the sacred Obama care Personal Mandate.

    The timing is no coincidence.

    Evil is running amok. “Men in power will stop at nothing to stay in power.”

    This constant barrage of evil, political savagery is the Democrats’ lasting contribution to this country. They and their GOPe uniparty stooges would rather destroy the country than lose power.

  23. IMO – the worst part of this hypocritical, disingenuous, and brazenly FAKE moral narrative from the deep state liberal media, are the ACTUAL VICTIMS of sexual abuse, harassment and predation –
    As in Juanita Broderick and all of bill AND hillary’s victims – but also those millions of women, before and after slick willy-gate, who happen to fall on the wrong side of the partisan divide, and who are being FURTHER marginalized and victimized by this POLITICAL charade. By men of course, but WORSE, by their own CONFUSED, sister females, who would stab each other for hypnotized partisan reasons, in the war on Donald Trump.

    Just like steinem and the femi-nazi division of the left did twenty years ago.
