Representative Mark Meadows Discusses FISA Abuse Memo…

Representative Mark Meadows appears on Lou Dobbs last night to discuss the four-page House Intelligence Committee FISA abuse memo currently under executive branch review. The HPSCI of the Legislative Branch has created a classified work product (the memo) and is requesting executive branch declassification.

After invited (executive) review by Christopher Wray on Sunday night, and two officials on Monday, the HPSCI voted to release to the executive.  The remaining executive branch (NSC, OLC, WH legal, CoS, etc.) is currently reviewing. Lou Dobbs is concerned about five FBI officials visiting the White House (w/ Chief-of-Staff Kelly).

    • We’re all about to see that sunshine. After watching the Mark Meadows interview above, YouTube served up a 1/31 interview by PBS of Devlin Barrett of WaPo. Barrett’s the journo who Strzok/Page leaked to in their texts. PBS never asked about that, but Barrett pitched the FBI talking points well. While we get a tan, some senior FBI officials are going to get burned, in spite of WaPo’s best efforts.

      @TMonroe: I agree!
      Their reality is distorted and for the first time all of them are literally scared, afraid and know the consequences for what they have done. They are facing a military tribunal that will not be as lenient as the judge in various courtrooms who usually sides with them. No the military tribunals work and decide cases on the premise of their intent and actions. They are all facing treason charges as Q tells us. They will get no mercy nor will they be granted good faith because they showed no good faith in all they did.
      “They all thought she would not lose”! If Hillary had won none of that would have come to light ergo the seriousness involved in this. There is no telling what they would have done with a Hillary white house. We now what their plan was and that alone is enough to stop all of them in their treacherous actions.
      As Q said : No deals! Hillary tried 6 different times to get a deal and each time it was rejected.
      Then there is the alphabet media who participated in that and they too will be held to account. As Q stated raids will be part of bringing the media to justice as well.
      Isn’t winning just grand?

      It would seem that the memo exonerates President Trump in the muh Russia investigation. I say this because of what Adam Shitty declared about President Trump releasing the memo.

      To paraphrase, “We cannot rely on the President to put the interests of the country above his own interests”, which leads me to believe that the memo shows that the entire Russian investigation is nothing but the witch hunt that President Trump has said it is!!!!

      I think any notification that is solely attributed to “The FBI” is by default the position of the director himself.
      If a notification were put out by somebody else inside the FBI it would, or should give proper reference to that individual.
      Only the director could permit this to be released given the sensitivity and public outcry.

          I think this illustrates the pitfalls of a complete Washington outsider winning the presidency.I do not believe DJT knew enough insiders well enough to REALLY know who would not set him up despite them offering to help him transition into the office and the Executive Branch. He had to point high level people early on and got the best advice available in his opinion; I have no doubt he had to choose among many candidates based on advice and recommendations from many people offering to “help”. As we have witnessed, some turned out to be good choices, others not so much. DJT always announced his choices as “great” people with fine records of performance/achievement. While that may be true, it is a perspective from inside the Washington DC paradigm (i.e., The Swamp). Obviously, we have seen several turn out to be far more loyal to the Swamp than to the President, and some downright disloyal to the President. I think Wray is a Swamp creature first and foremost. By that very definition, they know how to be chameleons of a sort, displaying whatever overt loyalties are needed to maintain their position, influence, and power. Disclaimer: I willfully voted for and continue to enthusiastically support the Outsider, President Donald J. Trump. MAGA!

          I don’t think that’s true. He was the director when Strzok was demoted and moved to HR, then he removed Baker from his position and also McCabe. He inherited a real mess, as did Sessions with the DOJ. I truly believe that Sessions and Wray are waiting on the I.G.’s investigation to be finalized. I believe changes are coming once the I.G.’s report has been reviewed, and that some of the rogue players will at the very least have their employment terminated. At that point, Session’s won’t have any choice but to appoint a special counsel who will put together a grand jury and prosecute those responsible for abusing their authority, stepping over the line and breaking the law.

      I found it odd that the objection letter was not over anyone’s signature. CNN website is quoting former US Attorney Preet Bharara saying of Wray “He is putting his job before loyalty to the President.” Why would anyone believe Preet who was dis-loyal to the president when asked for his resignation? Is CNN trying to stoke rumors that the Wray’s conflict with the President may lead to his fireing as well? All very interesting, can’t wait for the memo. I hope it lives up to the hype.

        SuwanneeGator – the answer to your second question (“Is CNN trying to stoke rumors that the Wray’s conflict with the President may lead to his firing as well?”) is Yes, that is one of the anti-Trump Deep State’s and their puppet Media’s objectives, to create the illusion that Trump fires anyone who disagrees with him. Of course they never mentioned that was Obama’s modus operandi – he only surrounded himself with complete sycophants, whereas Trump tries to included people of varying perspectives among his advisers, including those who disagree with him.

        While you estimate 20-30 some have estimated 50 directly involved.
        I fully understand the head on pike hang them at high noon folk that just is not going to happen.
        What those who are involved in exposing this “horrible mess” need to understand is that resignations are not enough at the VERY LEAST anyone involved needs to have their pensions revoked and fined to cover the investigations of their corruption.

    We should beware of politicians and bureaucrats using “governing” as a handy excuse to justify withholding this kind of information from the public. What’s happening now is the deep state exerting maximum pressure on Gen. Kelly who is described as one of the more establishment oriented members of the Trump White House and who just might agree with the FBI and DOJ partisans that “governing” might somehow be impaired if the public realizes just how corrupt these powerful and threatening organizations actually are. There is a strong opinion within the Deep State that corruption is a natural by-product of governing and so it’s always better to keep it hidden from public view lest it undermine the credibility of government organizations.

    Were I to make and educated “guess” – based on all the information we have been able to read and hear here at CTH, I would say Wray, at the least, has been somehow compromised, and at the worst, had himself measured for a black hat. I cannot say that with any ironclad assurance, true, but having worn the weird collar of an ordained pastor for almost 32 years, and having personally witnessed the issuance of denials and outright lies and attempts to shift blame and obfuscate matters however possible all those years, I’m getting a very bad read from Wray’s behavior this week.

    As Mr. Dobbs and Mr. Meadows said, Wray is the President’s man, and to be explicitly opposing the President puts all of this completely out of kilter. Others my have an opposing opinion, and the truth may lie somewhere in-between, but that little Texan voice in the back of my mind is yelling – “Be careful what you steppin’ in.” Or in other words . . .

    Wray’s actions ain’t passing the “smell test.”

    The so-called black hats are walking into a trap with the change in objections- when you start going on and on about omissions of facts, you are expected to support your argument with those omitted facts, and you can no longer obfuscate and stall about transparency. Those who have their objections will have to answer the questions about them publicly and can’t hide behind national security or privilege.

    I think there is a good chance now that most of the underlying material will be declassified at some point in the coming months and made public. Schiff and others can no longer object to to doing so- they are the ones making the argument that it needs to be released in the last 2 days. I think Nunes has played them like fiddles.

    Dobbs never holds back his punches.

    It’s disappointing and concerning that “appointed” Wray is a Black Hat given his public statement. He was the only known member of the FBI’s top leadership that was presumably not tainted with the past alleged actions of McCabe, Strzok etc and was generally trusted by many people to clean up the corruption and enact proper punishment. Now, he appears to have turned his back on the people and their “elected” Congress (and their legal oversight) and also shafted his ELECTED boss, the President.

    As Meadows said, if “omissions” only are the problem, then Wray could have offered to fill in the omissions with facts which is what the people of America deserve-not more obfuscation.
    The only justification for Wray’s comment would have been if the Memo would interfere with or compromise an investigation but any secret investigation would involve the possible criminals investigating themselves.

He has himself made a complaint with the IG and he says it is an open secret how corrupt the FBI is.

      BURN. IT. DOWN. We need to dismantle the FBI, and rethink it from the ground up. Do we need it at all any more? If so, what form should it take? Would it be better to take the money we use federally on the FBI and “block grant” it to the states with the requirement that the states provide support to small jurisdictions who can’t support a big investigation or whatever?

Any chance of a methodical just outcome has evaporated with Wray’s egregious decision. It’s no holds barred chaos now and that is not what the USA needs anymore of at this time. I don’t doubt that the MSM will blame it all on Trump even though he was the guy unfairly targeted by the FBI and Intel agencies and deserves justice not disloyalty and obstruction from his appointed Director.

        I hear you. My hope is that things can be run with a skeleton crew until all is cleansed and flushed out. Then build it back up with competent and honest people.

        It is repulsive to think how dirty it is. I like the lighted Zippo that Sundance posts. 🔥

        No to Block Grant. Let the states form their own SBIs and let them pay for it.
        Get the federal government out of my pocket. Besides, if they pay for it, they control it ultimately anyway.

        Sylvia, the Dobbs segment last night was so disturbing that I waited and watched it a second time when it reran at 10:00. Everyone should watch it, particularly the Chris Farrell segment. I hope and pray the memo is released early this morning.

        Silvia, What if their are more Alphabet-Soup orgs ( Intel/security ) that are as big a mess as this? Could it be ( and I am not sticking up for RR and Wray ) that they are worried about a complete meltdown / upheaval in their Org that will cast such a shadow on operations and moral that they are genuinely worried about day to day operations. If that is the case and they can’t handle it, the both of them should resign and put a couple of Marines in their place…

      HankM, I think you could be on to something there… I have been thinking for a while that DOJ and FBI might have their own investigation into the swamp… that would explain the refusal to release a lot of the documents that congress requested… who would want to give them documents from ongoing investigations when there is constant leaks from congress…

      If DOJ and FBI also investigate the swamp the release of the memo at this time might compromise the outcome… and DOJ and FBI might fry bigger fish than Nunes… who knows… just a thought…

      Just saying – no one who watched what happened at Waco, at Ruby Ridge, or read any history of the FBI under J. Edgar Hoover should be AT ALL surprised at the depth of corruption at the FBI. It should have been shut down half a century or more ago. It’s a federal shakedown organization, and no one who works for the FBI can possibly be unaware of that.

      Ditto with the CIA – should have been shut down in the late 50s. JFK knew, and none of us did anything.

    Poster Sylvia Avery replied to me and mentioned this must see Dobbs-Farrell video. As I wrote in a previous post, Wray has just ended any chance for a transparent, orderly and thorough investigation into this FBI-DOJ fiasco. Wray’s apparently chosen the cover-up side and turned against the boss that appointed him. It’s no hold barred chaos from now on between branches of gov’t, various gov’t agencies and lawyers etc rather than concentrating on the people’s business. Wray has provided the spark that will likely light a political and legal prairie fire.

    The burglary at the Watergate hotel was a petty crime compared to the cover-up actions later by Nixon and his top aides. The cover up destroyed Nixon. In this egregious case, thanks to Wray’s imprudent acctions, it is a toss up whether the alleged crimes committed by the FBI-DOJ will be worse than the present FBI-DOJ leadership’s attempts to cover it up or to indefinitely stall the uncovering of the truth.

      Any chance that the FBI’s caterwauling about the Memo might serve to drive public opinion against the FIBs and increase pressure to produce all the underlying evidentiary documentation so the truth can be known? Would not that serve PDJT’s purposes?

      In the Big Rope A Dope, I think we should be careful we aren’t the Dopes. Not that we shouldn’t drive outrage where it is due, and needed, but despair? No, despair not Treepers. PDJT has got this.

    Shifty is saying in his letter to Nunes that the memo was changed before it reached the White House. But we are now hearing that it was the five FBI agents who changed the original memo. Here’s my theory: Trump tell’s Gen Kelly to meet with the 5 FBI agents. Let them make any changes they want, it doesn’t matter because we will still be releasing the original Memo anyway. By letting them make changes, we will see what it is that they are trying to hide.
    The 5 FBI agents report back to Shifty. “Hey Adam, you need to get a letter off to Nunes ASAP and inform him that the memo has changed, and it now needs to come back to the committee”
    Shifty states in his letter that the changes were made before it left the committee, obviously to cover the fact that he’s colluding with the FBI.
    Why create such a distraction ? To delay release, so that the Dems memo gets out first in order to set the narrative.

    I have no doubt in my mind that Wrat is a black hat. He should be talking in private to Trump to express his concerns and not venting it in the media. Hi’s part of the strategy to create confusion among the American people. Early today I heart that there are a number of versions of the memo. Their plan would not work. All they have is deception and we have president Trump on our side. He will not let the American people down. He’s fighting to the end to expose the corruption in the government and save our country. Is time. The storm is coming. God bless president Trump. God bless America!

    The line is very thin…..

    Arrayed against PTrump is the State and all its Institutions…… and all its bureaucrats from the FBI to the EPA, the corporate media, university academia and the rest of the education system, blacks, hispanics (but less than you’d think), 3rd world immigrants of all types, activist Judges, the Chamber of Commerce in all its crony lobbyist iterations, the Globalists, the warming hysterics, Hollywood, the Pope, all Democrats, all Greens, ie. all neo-marxists, the CEOs of Google, Amazon, Facebook, Twitter and rent seekers of all varieties.
    Every one of them want to destroy Donald Trump. Mueller is their best hope.

    Take heart, the thin red line of the 93rd Highlanders held and prevailed.
    An example of what disciplined riflemen and courage in the face of the terrifying spectacle of a massed charge by Russian Heavy cavalry can achieve.

    Pretty sure the fbi objection is a plan to allow trump to release all evidence. Get the media to fall for trap and then say for full sunlight I’m releasing all evidence with memo to avoid any questions. Etc etc. if trump did this without media asking for it…..not the same impact.

    My hope and PRAYER is that PDJT releases the memo exactly as written by Nunes from the committee, as THEY have oversight. The corrupt FBI does not! Nor does the Chief of Staff! And that it’s released soon! Perhaps this is another trap set by PT to see just how far the dirty FBI and DOJ will go to try and get PT to relinquish his Constitutional authority! LET THE SUNSHINE (think ORB) IN, AND THE DISINFECTING BEGIN! Prayers for PDJT!

    I don’t know, but if were in President Trump’s shoes, I might think about holding off on the release of the Nunes Memo until Schiff’s Memo goes through the same procedure as the Nunes Memo, then I’d release the Schiff Memo , then the Nunes report and then I’d declassify & release the backup confirmation used by each author to confirm their memos.

    However, I’ll let President Trump be President Trump and I’ll let him handle the release of memos and declassified information in the manner that brings him the greatest advantage over these enemies of the people.

    I was suspicious of Chris Wray from the get-go after learning that his dad, Cecil Wray, is listed on the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) membership roster. The apple doesn’t fall too far from the tree–even ideologically speaking. He’s there to preserve “the swamp”.

    The simple fact that Wray received democrat votes of approval proves he is in the same league as Comey. He’s been a creature of the swamp his entire career. Trump is the greatest pres. of the last 2 centuries, but he’s not infallible. If he was he would have never asked for Comey’s loyalty. I screamed to anyone that would listen he needed to be fired from day 1. Trump, over the past year, has finally figured out who his friends are, “exe= freedom caucus members (who were routinely trashed by members of this community earlier on) and his enemies= all democrates and most republicans. Unfortunately, Wray was the best Trump could do. Hopefully somehow, Wray can be fired along with good guy but worthless Sessions, and a real fighter put in their place. It”s very simple, put yourself in Wray’s shoes and ask yourself if your were a Trump supporting constitutional would you be doing the things he is doing. Sometimes, things really are what they seem.
