Representative Matt Gaetz Discusses the Russian Dossier and FISA Application…

Earlier today Representative Matt Gaetz, Judiciary Committee, appeared on Fox News with Molly Line to discuss the Mueller investigation.  However, at 01:27 of the interview Ms. Line directs a specific question to Mr. Gaetz about the use of the sketchy dossier in securing the FISA warrant to wiretap and conduct surveillance on candidate Trump.

Further at 04:20 Gaetz discusses the March 20th, 2017, congressional testimony by James Comey and actually says the name no-one will ever speak, Bill Priestap.  Shocker.

    • BEWARE!!!!! This man is a LIAR!!!!! He is a relatively junior rep so WHY is he getting all this attention??!!?? THIS IS A SET UP – MARK MY WORDS!!!!!


      • “In 2008, Gaetz was arrested for a DUI as he was driving back from the Swamp, a nightclub on Okaloosa Island, Florida, in a 2001 BMW SUV registered to his father. While he was arrested and refused to take a breathalyzer test, “he didn’t have his license suspended for a year when he refused the breath test—as Florida law dictates. And he didn’t have that refusal used against him in a criminal proceeding.” At the time of his arrest and consequent criminal proceedings, his father was serving as a local politician. The attorneys agreed to drop the case, despite the fact that the police reported that “Gaetz fumbled for his license and registration, his eyes were watery and bloodshot, and he swayed and staggered when he got out of the car,” and Gaetz cited the dropped charges as proof that he was innocent.[2]

        Between 1999 and 2014, Gaetz received 16 speeding tickets in Florida.[3]”

        “In November 2017 Gaetz joined the bipartisan Climate Solutions Caucus. He said, “I don’t think there’s a scientific debate left to be had on if it is happening. I also think history is going to judge very harshly climate change deniers, and I don’t want to be one of them.” He said that he advocates technological innovation and economic incentives that address climate change, and increased federal funds for global warming research by NASA, NOAA and universities, but that he remains opposed to increased environmental regulation.[37]”

          There is a kind of ‘dualism’ (for lack of a better term) at play that appears to be at the root of TDS (Trump Derangement Syndrome).

          The political ‘right’ (excluding the establishment political-class Republicans and their supporters), notwithstanding their flaws, widely embrace God, family and country.

          The political “left” appears to have defined itself in opposition to the political ‘right’. The political ‘left’ doesn’t appear to actually STAND for anything, it simply exists to oppose the political ‘right’.

          In so doing, the ‘left’ has necessarily become the party of opposition toward God, family and country.

          In rejecting or removing God, they have embraced evil (consciously or unconsciously, no doubt there is much of both), they have embraced Satan, and they have embraced the destruction of the family and of our country by extension.

          In the absence of God, Leftist ideology (and for many the Occult or Satanism) has become their religion — and they are zealots.

          The Left, which so vehemently decries ‘religion’ (particular emphasis against Christianity), is itself radically religious (and therefore starkly hypocritical).

          And one of the highest, if not the highest tenet of political Leftism, is that the ends justifies the means.

          Any means.

          And it is this ‘will to power’ by ‘any means’ which, at least in part, explains their propensity to eagerly commit these wanton acts of crime and treason against our country.

            In a weird way, by defining itself in opposition to the ‘right’, the political Left has made itself dependent on the ‘Right’.

            The Left is inherently negative, it is ‘anti’, and the thing to which the Left is ‘anti’ is the Right.

            The ‘Right’ could exist easily (gratefully, thankfully) without the Left.

            But the opposite is not true.

            Because the Left has defined itself in opposition to the Right, the Left (as currently incarnated) could not exist without the Right.

            If the ‘Right’ suddenly disappeared, the fuel, the energy, the animating purpose of the Left would disappear with it.

            The converse is not so.

              What you say is true…up to a point.

              The left are actually communists in motion. Their cause is domination and the overthrow of the republic and capitalism. Just look at every thing they support and push. Big government controlling our lives from cradle to grave. The secularization and the persecution of Christianity. They use Islam to advance their secular agenda. It’s the enemy of my enemy is my friend. Open borders so as to flood the country w/third world unskilled, uneducated, people who have no intention of assimilation which is what the commies want. They also want these immigrants from countries who have a corrupt government as a way of life. That enable them to be compliant w/a corrupt government. They do not want these people to be loyal to the US. That makes it easier to overthrow the government when the time comes for an armed takeover. Political correctness is a subtle form of taking away free speech and thoughts.

              They use the educational system to brainwash the young. They have taken over the media which has become their propaganda arm of disinformation. Goebbels would be envious. The communist state is all around us. It has permeated our government and our way of life. Destruction of the family, , morality, ethics, traditional marriage, and anything that is the foundation of our society and republic has been targeted. They are doing a damn good job of taking over. I’d say we are one generation away from total collapse as a republic.

              Once they have taken over, they can easily survive w/o the right because we will no longer be a threat and they will no longer have to concentrate on us. They will set their sights on
              ruling over their utopia.

        I have seen him in several of these group photos, and I originally thought that he was part of the security detail, once the photo specifically identified as Strzok was published.

        He may be security, that is still the impression I have, but I am not sure now. I don’t recall seeing him wearing an earpiece, which I would expect for a member of a security team.

        And I don’t know what that black shoulder strap going across his chest is. Three of the men in that photo are wearing the same black shoulder strap.

    Rep. Matt Gaetz is my representative. He had a number of years experience in the FL Senate before running to replace retiring Jeff Miller in ’16.

    At the first Candidate Trump Rally in Pensacola in Sept ’16, he was the Emcee and did a tremendous job. I had the opportunity to meet him and shake his hand because he made himself available on the secondary no-go line.

    In the few minutes we chatted, it was clear he was totally on the Trump Train (He attended all the rallies held in Pensacola for President Trump) and intended to carry the conservative mantle of Rep Miller. In my opinion, he has done a tremendous job because he jumped in and started doing things like an experienced legislator, not a freshman Congressman. He is young, smart and a go-getter.

    Rep Gaetz sends out an e-mail newsletter every Friday updating the district on everything that is going on and what he personally is doing to help our district. From what I’ve seen Rep. Gaetz is going on to bigger and better things in the future of MAGA!

      Matt Gaetz is impressive. In giving him and his legislative aid (who was a Marine) information he took the info and went to work. The follow up and research confirmation was tremendous. Gaetz took leadership and went to the steps of Congress with his fellow patriotic Congressman. I’ve spoken to many but Gaetz took leadership like no other. He is now on air wall to wall. I noticed after his press conference in front of Congress he joined President Trump on Airforce 1 as they went to Pensacola.

      Mueller should not resign. This would give the Left and their propagandist media new ammunition. He should stay where he is and keep digging. He is now so tainted that a large majority of Americans wouldn’t believe him if he told us he’d learned the earth was round.

      If he were smart (and I don’t think he is – just corrupt), he’ll save what he can of his own reputation, protect those swamp dwellers he can protect, throw a few pawns to the wolves (Page, McCabe and Strzok so long as they agree to keep their mouths shut – like Webb Hubbell did, maybe even make a nice living while in the slammer also like Webb Hubbell did), announce he’s found no Russian collusion and live to corrupt another day.

      The swamp was just as horrified by Ronald Reagan who was nearly assassinated two months after taking office (which is a whole ‘ nother story) but figured out they’d best just hunker down until he served out his term after which they ran Bush and Dukakis so what whichever one won, the swamp regenerated itself.

It is obvious the dems (and prob some reps) on the congressional committees can not be trusted with the info. Hopefully it is staying with a few trusted people at DOJ and will drop when the right time. Perhaps getting it all out in open so public sees at same time as the committee, they dems and RINOs can’t tweak it to their advantage.

            • OMG!! YOU are nutso!!!!! “Attorney General Jeff Sessions told a small group of lawmakers in late September he was recused from appointing a special counsel to look into potential corruption surrounding the Uranium One deal and Fusion GPS’s work on the Trump dossier, according to one of the lawmakers present.

              Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) told Breitbart News on Wednesday that he and other House Judiciary Committee Republicans had met with Sessions at the Justice Department on September 28 in advance of an upcoming committee hearing with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein later this month.

              Gaetz said that when he asked Sessions to appoint a special counsel to investigate the 2010 Uranium One deal and Fusion GPS, the attorney general stood up, said he could not discuss the matter because he had recused himself, and walked out of the room, leaving them with a group of Rosenstein staffers “who showed no interest.”

              “He said that anything that had to do with 2016 election, or Russia, or the candidates in the 2016 election, fell under the scope of his recusal, and he left the room,” Gaetz said.

              “It was Sessions’ position that his recusal on the Russia matter divorced him from any oversight on Uranium One and Fusion GPS. That’s troubling. Sessions’ recusal is a function of his involvement in the Trump campaign. In no world does that impact his judgment as it relates to Fusion GPS and Uranium One. But he views the recusal more broadly. That’s troubling because that puts Rosenstein in charge,” he said.

              Gaetz said Rosenstein’s staffers provided “no answers” and “no timeline for answers.”

              “It must be very frustrating for the president that the Department of Justice is overreacting to fictitious allegations and subsequently paralyzed to truly vet incursions into our nuclear assets,” he said. “Attorney General Sessions does not believe he has the power to appoint a special counsel on this matter.”

              Other House members present at the meeting were Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) and Reps. Jim Jordan (R-OH), Ron DeSantis (R-FL), and Louis Gohmert (R-TX).

              Justice Department spokeswoman Sarah Isgur Flores said others in the room do not remember Sessions saying anything like that and that the subject was “discussed.” She would not comment on whether Sessions has recused himself.

              “I’ve talked to people who were in the room and they don’t remember him saying anything like this. The subject was discussed so maybe someone misconstrued what he said. I can’t comment on recusal issues though because to do so would confirm or deny the existence of an investigation,” she said in a statement to Breitbart News.”

    On 4/25/16, there were 2 back to back meetings at the White House between FISA lawyers and FBI Counsel James Baker. It was hosted by Suhas Subramanyam.


  22. Steve in Lewes says:

    I’ve tried to stay on top of all this and have a question. Early on and also in this vid, the assumption has been that it was Priestap that accompanied Sally Yates to the Don McGahan meeting back in January. In an article a few days ago, SD put a call out for research on the folks who were in certain positions in the DOJ/NSD organization and in a follow up article SD stated that the person who accompanied Yates was Mary McCord. My question; was it Priestap, McCord, or both who accompanied Yates?


  23. joepertx says:

    Question for Sundance: Who is the real Jeff Sessions? Is he carefully and meticulously building an air tight case? Or is he protecting the deep state?


  24. cali says:

    Sessions is a good guy and has been building a case since he stepped foot into his office. His nickname in AL was ‘silent destroyer’ and I think it applies here. Many of us poo-poo’d when he spent time putting in place the ‘asset and seizure’ policy only to learn that it was the beginning of DT issuing the recent EO listing all the human rights violators etc that also includes freezing and/or seizing their assets. Now we also learn that included in this EO are the Clintons and everyone involved in uranium one. Eric Schmidt from Google resigned immediately followed by a total of over 80+ others all connected/involved in the human rights violations as DT outlined in his EO.
    Also don’t forget the many sealed indictments filed numbering in the thousands across various courts in the US which will most likely drop beginning in January 2018. Sessions and Wray are the good guys per Q working in tandem to clean out the swamp. I’m sure when indictments starting to be unsealed we will see the tremendous efforts they all put into it.
    Then there is the dossier: I do not or ever have rusted Lindsay Graham as far as I could throw him and his #NeverTrump made it clear that teaming up with McCain that he has no love lost for our president. Having said that his remarks on Fox and Friends/Brain Kilmeade peaked my interest because of the words he used. He said that what he found out about this dossier and those involved is deeply disturbing. He validated in so many words that yes this dossier was used at the FISA court.


    • FrenchNail says:

      McCain is on his death bed and will not recover to come back to Washington. In that Graham is loosing his mentor and most trusted colleague. He is running to defend his seat in 2018 and needs all the help he can get from the Trumpster to retain it. So now he is making nice and “discovering” how bad the dossier is. Like if he did not know better than anyone else what was in it, since his mentor was the one facilitating its transition to the FBI. He needs to make himself valuable to the President not to be primaried too hard. Anyway I really hope SC will send him packing and elected a less corrupt Senator.
