Ron DeSantis: NYT Papadopoulos ‘Russia Probe’ Claim Not What FBI and DOJ Told Congressional Investigators…

Florida Representative and Judicary Committee member Ron DeSantis appears on Sunday Morning Futures and deconstructs the leaked intelligence community propaganda pushed by the New York Times.

Essentially DeSantis states the claims surrounding the origin of the 2016 Russian Probe, made by the leaked intelligence sources, does not align with the sworn congressional testimony given by the FBI and DOJ to the judiciary committee.

@02:00: “There was just an article in The New York Times yesterday where they’re leaking about this Papadopoulos, which actually conflicts with previous stories, and is not anything anyone can say under oath on-the-record to us. You look at that and say, “Ok you’re not willing to answer Congress’s questions under oath but you’ll leak things to the media?”…

.

The back-story to the FISA warrant is the cornerstone to expose this entire charade. The back-story to the FISA warrant contains both the FBI and the DOJ upper-management and leadership. The back-story to the FISA warrant outlines the conspiracy and the nature of the relationships amid all the co-conspirators.

Expose the back-story and the entire ‘muh Russia’ conspiracy fraud collapses under the weight of sunlight, and all of the co-conspirators are discovered simultaneously.  Deep state knows this, hence their attempt to change the origin of the 2016 counterintelligence operation against candidate Trump, ie. “The Russia Probe“.

    The propaganda piece in the New York Times is so transparent and flimsy. And desperate. I already talked to one relative who was ready and waiting to accept anything that seemed like a “win” for the anti-Trump forces and they lapped up this NYT article wholeheartedly.

    The game here is simple — tell the public what you want them to think, and stall out until after the 2018 elections and hopefully Democrats gain control of the House and Mueller gives you something that will make your crimes disappear.

    They had to come up with something. That this is their best effort, the best thing they could come up with, illustrates how far we’ve come in exposing the truth of the conspiracy that was launched against Trump the candidate and Trump the president.

        I think they used Papad because they have him in the bag. He’s under indictment. So you’ve “nabbed” the guy who supposedly was the person who sprung the investigation into gear. It’s like a two-fer of validating their falsehoods.

        Flynn was not yet in the picture (still with Obama Admin, I think), and I don’t think Manafort is talking to Mueller yet. Not seriously, anyways.

        Thus, Papad becomes your Lee Harvey Oswald patsy. You can use grand jury testimony from/about him, you look like you (FBI) got your man, etc.

        The scary part is that so many people don’t question any of this. I was with a few relatives recently and they are so hoodwinked on Trump/Russia it surprised me.

        Fabrications like the one the New York Times produced yesterday are for people like those relatives of mine. They want to believe, and the Times feeds their desire and naivete.

        Team Obama — core and extended — is behind all of this. And Team Obama are good propagandists and they know the media will do anything that Team Obama asks them to do.

        There is still much work yet to be done. And much of it needs to be done by Congress, with as much crowdsourcing work to help Congress as the rest of us can do.

        We’ve come a long way. But the traitors are not going to give up easily.

        Yes, remember Judge Napolitano wrote about this in March, after Trump’s tweet that Obama wiretapped him.

        From http://www.judgenap.com/post/did-obama-spy-on-trump :

        Sources have told Fox News that the British foreign surveillance service, the Government Communications Headquarters, known as GCHQ, most likely provided Obama with transcripts of Trump’s calls. The NSA has given GCHQ full 24/7 access to its computers, so GCHQ — a foreign intelligence agency that, like the NSA, operates outside our constitutional norms — has the digital versions of all electronic communications made in America in 2016, including Trump’s. So by bypassing all American intelligence services, Obama would have had access to what he wanted with no Obama administration fingerprints.

        Thus, when senior American intelligence officials denied that their agencies knew about this, they were probably being truthful. Adding to this ominous scenario is the fact that three days after Trump’s inauguration, the head of GCHQ, Robert Hannigan, abruptly resigned, stating that he wished to spend more time with his family.

              They got a FISA to give credibility to their character assassination of Trump and Putin. They hoped Americans would conclude, based on a FISAbeing granted, that something between Trump and Russia really must be going on for the FBI to be worried enough to go to court to get a FISA to spy on Trump (which they were already doing but couldnt admit). Americans were told that FISAs are only granted if overwhelming evidence is provided to the court to support the request so the fact that a judge looked at the evidence of Trump and Putin connections provided by the FBI and granted the FISA was meant to convince the public the Russia hit job was very real rather than a political hit job. Again, the FISA had NOTHING to do with spying, it was done to give legitimacy to the political assassination attempt on Trump and Putin which began with the fake Crowdstrike report blaming Russia and Wikileaks for the DNC email release that was legitimized by Brennan, Clapper and Comey.

      Just read this article from the WAPO! They are petrified of Rep. Devin Nunes. Trey Gowdy is nothing but a POS. Any Treeper that believes in this man needs to read this article and how Gowdy goes after Nunes. You would think he is a Democrat.

      https://www.washingtonpost.com/amphtml/powerpost/devin-nunes-targeting-mueller-and-the-fbi-alarms-democrats-and-some-republicans-with-his-tactics/2017/12/30/b8181ebc-eb02-11e7-9f92-10a2203f6c8d_story.html?tid=ss_tw&utm_term=.e8ae66836711&__twitter_impression=true

      From the article linked above:

      Rep. Devin Nunes, once sidelined by an ethics inquiry from leading the House Intelligence Committee’s Russia probe, is reasserting the full authority of his position as chairman just as the GOP appears poised to challenge special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s investigation of possible coordination between the Trump campaign and Russian officials.

      The California Republican was cleared in December of allegations he improperly disclosed classified information while accusing the Obama administration of exposing the identities of Trump affiliates on surveillance reports. Since clearing his name, Nunes has stepped up his attacks on Mueller’s team and the law enforcement agencies around it, including convening a group of Intelligence Committee Republicans to draft a likely report on “corruption” among the investigators working for the special counsel.

      Though Nunes has not officially wrested his panel’s Russia probe back from the Republicans he deputized to run it, the chairman’s reemergence as a combative Trump loyalist has raised alarm among Democrats that the future of the investigation may be clipped short or otherwise undermined. Even some of Nunes’s GOP allies have expressed concern about his tactics, prompting rare public warnings that he should temper his attacks on federal law enforcement.

      “I’m interested in getting access to the information and not the drama,” Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) said earlier this month, when Nunes began threatening contempt citations for FBI Director Christopher A. Wray and Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein in the wake of revelations former Mueller team members had exchanged anti-Trump texts.

      More recently, Gowdy said that his “heart would be broken” if Nunes follows through on reported plans to issue a corruption exposé about the FBI, citing concerns that issuing such a report outside the context of a comprehensive investigation of the Justice Department could prove damaging to law enforcement.

      Gowdy, a member of the Intelligence panel who also chairs the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, suggested that Nunes has taken some of these steps without the express blessing of House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.),who has been involved in crafting the GOP’s multipronged approach to examining a string of allegations from Russian election interference to alleged mismanagement at the nation’s top law enforcement agencies.

      A spokesman for Nunes declined to comment.

      But Nunes’s moves coincide with what Democrats say is a coordinated GOP effort to shutter the House Intelligence Committee’s Russia probe, publicly absolve President Trump of the most serious allegations against him, and refocus the House’s resources against the law enforcement officials, such as Mueller, who continue to investigate Trump.

      “I don’t know where his staff ends and HPSCI” begins, Gowdy said, referring to the House Intelligence committee by its official acronym. “Some of them are apolitical nonpartisan members of his staff, and I’m not smart enough to know who’s what.”

      If there is one aspect of the Russia probe that seems destined to outlast the House Intelligence Committee’s preferred timeline, it is Nunes’s investigation of Fusion GPS, the firm behind a dossier detailing Trump’s alleged connections to Russian officials, financiers and exploits in Moscow. Nunes’s subpoena of the firm’s bank records is caught up in a court battle, and the chairman’s staff is in touch with the office of Sen. Charles E. Grassley (R-Iowa), according to the senator, who is also looking into reports that the Clinton campaign and the Democratic Party paid for research that ended up in the dossier’s pages.

      The dossier continues to be a focus of the president’s in tweet storms seeking to discredit Mueller’s probe. Most recently, he blasted the FBI for focusing on the “Crooked Hillary pile of garbage” dossier “as the basis for going after the Trump Campaign.” In recent weeks, he has also tweeted encouragement of Nunes’s efforts to unearth information about the dossier from the “deep state.”

      Nunes, meanwhile, appears to have made up his mind about the House Intelligence Committee probe into the allegations surrounding Trump and Russia, expressing his convictions in an interview with Fox News.

      “We have no evidence of Russia collusion between the Trump campaign” and Russia, Nunes said.

    This is a good interview. Totally predictable is the Democrat response to all of this. Let me use what I saw this morning on This Week with George Stephanopolus that was being hosted by Martha Raddatz. She completely and totally accepted the NYT “explanation” for how the muh-Russia investigation began. It was fete’ complete. As she said “now that we know it had nothing to do with the dossier, but was begun when a Trump insider boasted to a foreign dignitary” about Russias’ collusion with Trump. Her panel agreed and expressed excitement that Trump would not be able to “finish out his term.” They even went so far as to comment that the country “is governed, not only by the White House, but also ABC news and the New York Times” (not making that up, it was actually said). Then there was the pearl clutching and deep, “genuine” concern over the “chilling effect” that Trump’s criticism of the press was causing. It was both maddening and delicious at the same time.

    I went back and looked at the articles at the time Papadopoulos was charged. It’s not a coincidence he is friends with one of the main characters of Dossier. Papadopoulos had one mission it seems and that was to introduce Team Trump to as many Russians as possible

    http://dailycaller.com/2017/11/01/george-papadopouloss-fascinating-link-to-the-trump-dossier/

    An email sent by George Papadopoulos last year provides the first hard evidence that the former Trump campaign adviser was friends with Sergei Millian, an alleged source for some of the most salacious claims in the infamous Steele dossier.

    The Washington Post reported Tuesday night that Papadopoulos sent an email to Trump aide Boris Epshteyn last September seeking to set up a meeting with Millian, who he reportedly described as a friend. Epshteyn told The Post that the meeting did not occur.

    The link between Papadopoulos and Millian is significant because it could explain how information from someone in the Trump campaign ended up in the dossier, which was financed by the Clinton campaign and Democratic National Committee. The jaw-dropping document cites unnamed Trump campaign associates as the ultimate sources for the allegations about collusion with the Kremlin.

    And both Papadopoulos and Millian, whose real name is Siarhei Kukuts, appear to have overstated their accomplishments and influence in the past. Papadopoulos has lied about parts of his resume, and Millian has been described by one associate as a “hustler” and “self-promoter.” (RELATED: Alleged Dossier Source Has Overstated His Business Connections

    Wasn’t the story about the DNC server email being compromised by alleged Russian “hacking” 100% debunked by the DNC server logs showing a data transfer rate for the “hacked” files that exceeded the data transfer speed limit of the internet service provided to that DNC server, which proved there was an on site data copying from the DNC server directly to a portable data drive like a USB thumb drive or laptop? Isn’t that discovery how it is known that Seth Rich or some other DNC affiliated person having access to the physical local DNC computer network directly accessed and copied the e-mail files by direct connection on site, copying files that never went out over the internet?

So much mental anguish is dismissed as PTSD, when in fact, it is “hyper anger” at the society they are moving back into. It is anger at what they fought for. It is anger at realizing that you have been used as a “useful idiot”.

  31. It all comes down to Jeff Sessions. All of it.

    If he is, who some think he is, then all this is just part of a desperate circus act that will do them no good. If he is what I think he is, then George is our patsy, and this is now all over.

    Also, in my opinion, if we don’t prosecute this most egregious of crimes, then this country is finished. You can press and twiddle with knobs and buttons, and provide short term fixes, but the cancer is going to stay, and will eventually be the death of us as a free society. I watched it happen in the UK when it joined the EU, and now I am watching it happen here. It is far from pleasant.

    It is scary that this man, who was not elected by the American people to run the nation, has so much power over the very future we will have to endure.

    I am praying that people are right about Jeff Sessions wearing a white hat. But what if they are wrong, as the evidence seems to suggest. Trump said he wouldn’t have employed him had he known about the recusal, and very recently he also suggested his grave concerns. I don’t believe Trump lies, or plays people for suckers. He is a straight shooter. Lois Learner and the IRS was dismissed by Sessions. Why? No-one knows. But I have a very good idea why. It will be the same reason they will all walk free.

    For me, Jan 14th 2018 is everything. If people in the administration aren’t calling for justice by then, with the IG report (which we do not know what it will say), then I am going to switch off from it all, and get back to absorbing myself into the farm. Wasting my time, searching for unicorns at the end of rainbows has become too depressing for me to endure. All it does is make me depressed. And what is the point in that? I am as informed as I need to be.

    I am not saying that switching off won’t be difficult. Reading the articles is like picking at a scab. You know you shouldn’t, but it is a difficult habit to break. But eventually, I’ll put my mental health and well being above the need for “hoping” for prosecutions that will not come, because the DOJ is just so massively corrupt under it’s current leadership.

    I am not alone in my thoughts. If it is good enough for Mike Huckabee, then it is good enough for me.

      Last I heard, the actual report will be coming in closer to April.

      But, if the evidence is presented in organized, searchable files, I’m going to go on the assumption the IG is on the up and up. If it is non-searchable PDF’s like the state department dumps, then we are just being played.

    “Wow! The case against the liberal media and its love affair with Hillary Clinton just added a new chapter. The bombshell Tweet by Wikileaks Sunday shows The New York Times colluding with Clinton when she worked in the State Department.”

    Wikileaks: NY Times fed State Dep. and Clinton with heads-up on stories to run

    Email shows New York Times handed over Cablegate's publication schedule to the US government (without telling @WikiLeaks) giving the State Department, then headed by Hillary Clinton, up to 9 days in advance to spin the revelations or create diversions. https://t.co/IMrDOwoCd2 pic.twitter.com/CT4XkEs8Mc— WikiLeaks (@wikileaks) December 31, 2017

    ” This means the Times was providing lead time to Clinton’s State Department so that it would have ample opportunity to prepare for the PR nightmare that would follow a story once it went to press. It also presented the State Department and Clinton with the much needed time to prepare for a diversion story — a tactic used in DC on a daily basis.”

If the outcome is “Strzok gets 6 months’ probation for improper use of a government cell phone”… and the principals in the Clinton/Obama crime family emerge unscathed… well, then we’ll know about what Jeff Sessions was and wasn’t.

          I agree with those who say that assembling an airtight case takes time. Most certainly. But if we don’t get real action here soon, it will be too late (i.e. the midterms will pass the investigative gavels out of Nunes’ hands into the likes of Schiff [shudder]).

  34. The NYT article reports:

    [quote]

    A team of F.B.I. agents traveled to Europe to interview Mr. Steele in early October 2016. Mr. Steele had shown some of his findings to an F.B.I. agent in Rome three months earlier [coincidentally, at the time the investigation started], but that information was not part of the justification to start an counterintelligence inquiry, American officials said.

    [end quote]

    The FBI agent in Rome was Michael Gaeta, who was the Assistant Legal Attaché at the U.S. embassy in Rome from 2014 through October 2016.

    Gaeta met with Christopher Steele in Rome in June 2016. The meeting’s purpose was to discuss Steele’s “research”. Steele wanted the FBI to help him confirm information.

      But given that there are ‘trillions of dollars’ at stake, these criminals will have big money to buy good defense teams. As such, air tight cases have to be made, and this will take time.

      In the meantime, PDJT is doing the economic thing to MAGA. But he, as a builder, knows that the foundation has to be solid, and he has to do something about those whose who have been destroying the foundation.
