Sunday Talks – Maria Bartiromo Interviews James Kallstrom and Rep. John Ratcliffe…

Maria Bartiromo interviews James Kallstrom, former Assistant Director of the FBI and Representative John Ratcliffe (R-TX).  The discussion topic is the HPSCI memo and possible crimes outlined as committed by the senior members of the FBI.

Mr. Kallstrom outlines the malfeasance and FBI corruption as it pertains to the FBI specifics.  Congressman Ratcliffe has viewed the underlying source material for the HPSCI memo and discussed how DOJ Deputy Bruce and Nellie Ohr are connected to a pipeline of information from the Clinton Campaign directly to the DOJ and FBI.

          Trish Regan is a foul ball. About ten days ago, after Ron DeSantis explained clearly what had transpired in this hullabaloo and that it was the Democrats’ baby all the way, she smiled brightly and said, “So the Russians got what they wanted.” NO ONE HAD MENTIONED THE RUSSIANS BECAUSE THEY WEREN’T INVOLVED.

            Standlow, I think you got the wrong tak away from Trish’s comment. The Russians did get what they wanted a US Government in turmoil. Mostly self inflicted by politicalization of our top law enforcement DOJ/FBI and probably others (more to come per Nunes) but I agree with Trish the Russians must be dancing with what we have done to ourselves.

Kurtz, Wallace, Cavuto, Shep Smith, and a few others appear fearful of the sons of the new management. The Ailes Era is gone. The anti-Trump Foxes need to take their silly masks off and work elsewhere. Maria, Ingraham,and others loyal to the government need to stay strong at Fox promoting truth. Bret Baier needs to go. Pirro is a hero. Fox has become a ship without a rudder trying not to lose viewers.

            Wonder if he can see with those eyes? We know he can’t hear (at least more than one side), he can’t read (except the Demo talking points), and can’t understand the majority of the country (and we understand the “HilLIARy won the popular vote line—but most of us don’t consider the dead people, illegals or felons who voted for her as legitimate) so why would we expect anything else?
            He, like the other talking heads (Dirtbag and the Uber trustworthy Brennan—hack, hack—), keep insisting that the Republicans want to undermine the FBI and DOJ. Sorry, the only ones that NEED to be undermined are the ones who have ALREADY used these organizations for their own agendas. A few years back there was a scandal, I believe in the Atlanta area. It involved a group of educators who changed test scan sheets to give the appearance that student performance was much better than it actually was. It apparently was done in order to secure large bonuses. Like the DOJ/FBI scandals, these actions were not done by the grunts—the classroom teachers in the same vein as the average FBI agent or DOJ employee—rather it was the superintendent and assistant superintendents, like for the crooked management at FBI/DOJ. Blatantly, the “educators” at the top were motivated by their own greed and those “agents” T the FBI and “managers” at DOJ we’re motivated by power madness. Either way, all of these actors committed illegal acts. The “educators” were caught and punishment meted out. The future of our democracy hinges on the same thing happening to the”agents” and “managers”.
            Once again, the Dims doth protest too much. The more they bit@h, the more you realize you are getting close to their guilt. That swamp slime is spreading, but we have Mr. Clean in PDJT!

          “Operation Mockingbird” the liberals receive their talking points at 4 a.m. everyday from David Rothschild and George Soros. You will hear them parrot the same talking points on all of the MSM shows. They are wanting to start riots so they can take the “narrative” off of what the Dems have done. However, the 2nd dossier written by a Clinton journalist will be coming out soon. There will be a total of 9 memos released in Congress but only 4 will be seen by the public. So, with all of the negative upcoming news, what is the over-arching plan by the Dems to combat the truth being revealed? They can’t have a protest, bombing, etc. every day. The Dems are out of money. They can’t pay for it. Anti-Fa will do it just for the fun of it but most won’t participate unless they get paid.

      I believe I have seen Kallstrom on Varney. He is the one who told Trump at least two years ago that everything he did would be spied on. He said it would either be the government, the Democrats/Clinton or both. That is why I honestly believe they could not find anything on Trump before the election. He knew they were watching. If they had found anything, they would have arrested him before inauguration, even if just for show.

              Came here to say that. Kallstrom was mentioned in the book on the Flight 800 investigation wherein FBI reports were ditched, changed or people reinterviewed to eliminate the reports from several sources of a missile hitting the plane, breaking it in half and it fell from the sky. Conclusion was a Navy missile, either a test or errant launch, locked onto the 747 in error, and because B. Clinton was weeks away from a mid-term election, and he didn’t have great respect from the Armed Forces, the gas tank theory was forced on investigators by the CIA and FBI to cover the embarrassing episode. Kallstrom owes us.

There were 3 renewals of the FISA warrant for Carter Page which each has to demonstrate that the previous warrants were bearing fruit to be granted the renewal. Where are the darn charges against Carter Page?

If the FISA judge had asked for 10 random names of lower-level field and special agents from the FBI who had worked on verification to come in, and asked them – POINT BLANK – do you think this “stuff” is credible, I’m betting 8/10 would either say “no” or laugh, and the other two would do the toadie “hem and haw”.

      They need to release a memo outlining exactly how the dossier was assembled. A earlier CTH post indicated Nellie had access to NSA intelligence information. Thus, the incorrect Carter Page trip to Prague was included. Anons at 4chan are claiming part of the made up dossier is sourced from 4chan. Then there is the Russian connection.

      Yes, Kallstrom used “treasonous” at about 8:50+ in the video, it’s a word you won’t hear from the politicians, Ratcliffe being a fine example. Kallstrom also supplemented Ratcliffe’s initial response by saying that it(the FISA warrant)was based on phony information, whereas Ratcliffe just mentioned that it was “incomplete” info. Point is Kallstrom was blunt/direct, enumerating charges, etc., whereas Ratcliffe danced around with his answers(yes, politicos do that, occasionally for good reason.) Also, know that Ratcliffe is no different than Gowdy, look at his resume’. He’s an ex-partner in John Ashcroft’s law firm-there’s no bigger swamp creature than John Ashcroft-and ex-aide to Mittens Romney, if that isn’t a Swamp tadpole’s training camp, there isn’t such a thing. Ratcliffe also mentioned that he is more proud of his DOJ experience than his Congressional experience, so how he tilts in the future will be interesting to see, and possibly pivotal. BTW, it would be nice to see Kallstrom replace Wray as Director, FBI, so there would be a really experienced Agent instead of a lawyer in the position.

    Why Kallstrom is PISSED Semper Fi, baby!!

    James K. Kallstrom (born May 6, 1943)[1] is a former FBI Assistant Director. He led the investigation into the 1996 explosion of TWA Flight 800.[2] He was a supervising agent in the New York investigation of the Cosa Nostra criminal network that resulted in the Mafia Commission Trial of 1985–1986.[3] Kallstrom worked for 27 years at the FBI[4] and has been described as an expert in wiretapping.[5] During his career at the FBI he was a leading advocate of expanding wiretapping power through the Communications Assistance for Law Enforcement Act (CALEA). He is a former Marine captain and Vietnam veteran.[5] He left the public sector for private sector employment in the financial industry beginning in 1998.[4] After the 9/11 attacks, Kallstrom returned to the public sector to lead New York state’s public safety office.[6][7]

    In the 2016 presidential election, Kallstrom supported Donald Trump and has referred to Hillary Clinton and the Clinton family as being criminal-like.[2][8] He called the Clinton Foundation a “cesspool”.[9] Kallstrom has established relationships with Rush Limbaugh and Fox News to further his work to promote the Marine Corps – Law Enforcement Foundation (MC-LEF), a charitable organization of which he is the Chairman of the Board.[1][a] On Fox News, Kallstrom accused United States Attorney General, Loretta Lynch, of bias by behaving as if she were part of the Democratic National Committee

      Rosenstein signed the last continuation for DoJ shortly after he arrived there. The damaging FISA warrant evidence was over at FBI hidden by Comey and McCabe. It was never at DoJ.

However, being duped by FBI will make his oversight of Mueller extra thorough, and that is good. Firing him is both strategically and tactically the wrong move for Trump and Sessions right now.
      Continuing the legal logic, Mueller is hosed but that shoe hasn’t dropped yet. There was no continuation of Fisa on Page after a year because there was no collusion uncovered by themillegal fisa surveillance, and Comey had been fired (else he might have pushed for continuation). There can be no obstruction of justice of a bogus Comey investigation, when the firing is doubly justified in hindsight by Comey’s own obstruction of justice. The original Rosenstein firing memo provides ample justification for Trump’s action.
      If Mueller wants to keep his partnership at Wilmer Cutler, he will now have to wind up his now obvious witch hunt soon.

    The bottom line at this point is we are truly going to rid the FBI and DOJ of this filth is not to just fire and get rid of them but each and everyone of them has to face each and every charge for the laws they violated. You can’t have one without the other. Our young generation, Generation Z, has to be able to see that crimes against our country and our President leads to either life in prison or the execution of every POS involved.

    The more that face the Death Penalty the better because it will leave a long lasting image in their minds. They will be our future leaders as well as parents and grandparents. Regrettably to many of the millennials are to far gone. Thankfully the life expectancy for men and women in the US is into the 80s. That allows the impact of the millennials to be minimized.

    I’m going to take this in a different direction for now. Watching Mr. Kallstrom for me was heartbreaking. Here is a man, who to me seems honorable. He’s dedicated his life to protecting all of us Americans, retires after all of his years of hard work with the FBI, and now watches these top dogs destroy the very fabric of honor of the FBI in just a few short years. It looked to me that not only is he angry, but he’s hurt, really hurt, and I don’t blame him.

    This makes me wonder how the rest of the FBI are feeling right now. We’re not hearing from the ones still working, and that is understandable, but imagine having to walk into the Hoover building day in and day out with this hanging over them. Low morale and frustration doesn’t even seem to cover it properly, and I’m sure they’ve never felt worse. And yet, every morning they wake up to start their day in using every tool they know and have to keep us all safe.

    I would think they would have to bottle this up somehow and put it on a shelf until their day is done. They can’t let all of this intrude into what they have to do. Now that has got to be really hard to do no matter how professional one is.

    So yes, my heart does go out to all of the good guys and gals who work so tirelessly for their country. It wouldn’t be a bad idea if we gave them a shout out in someway to let them know how thankful and appreciative we are of what they are doing and that we don’t blame them all for the criminal activities of a few among their ranks. I ask for them to hold strong and to know we are still standing with them.

      I have a feeling that Rosenstein was an approver of FISA applications and did not participate in completing the documents nor in validating the data. The actual mechanics of completing the FISA documents and certification of contents was likely done by FBI agents. That is why I withhold judgement of Rosenstein and few others because it is likely they were duped by certifications of data by the FBI agents presenting the documents.

    That pipeline went BOTH ways. There were THREE pipelines.

    1)The Ohr pipeiline, a direct off record conduit from BRUCE OHR to NELLIE OHR,

    2)There was the direct off record conduit from the White House to NEIL KING, who is married to Obama’s Senior Adviser SHAILAGH MURRAY.

    3) And then there was the pipeline from the HRCC to GLEN SIMPSON through P&C.

    This is what was done.

    Intel would be passed from the DoJ and FBI to Fusion GPS via the OHR’s. Information from the White House would be to Fusion GPS through MURRAY/KING. And info would be passed from HRCC and DNC through Glen Simpson.

    When the FBI needed a wiretap based on flimsy information, they would present their intel to FISA, and then would corroborate it with news stories sourced by Fusion GPS using the SAME INTEL that was passed to them off record using the pipelines.

    They did exactly this with Page’s first Wiretap, i would bet a million dollars that Probable Cause was established for the extension using media article that were planted by Fusion GPS.

    Coordination of the narrative was done through MURRAY/KING. MURRAY is specialized in Communications, with an extensive background in the media (WaPo, WSJ, etc.) Directions, timing, coordination of materials were all done through this conduit.

    Fusion GPS was primarily used as an off record conduit FROM the Government, and TO the media. The Dossier was crap, the FBI knows this. I bet most of their evidence is crap, and that’s why they needed Fusion GPS. Fusion GPS was literally a tool that was used to communicate off record with the WH, and to falsely corroborate evidence used in the FISA court.

    THE NEIL KING/SHAILAGH MURRAY CONNECTION IS ALWAYS OVERLOOKED, BUT IT IS JUST AS IMPORTANT, IF NOT MORE SO THAN THE OHRS!!!

        From another Treeper when the Simpson testimony was discussed:
        http://www.booknotes.org/Watch/72333-1/Glenn-Simpson

        There’s a direct in White House – Fusion GPS tie in, look at Shailaigh Murray and Neil King.
        “An explosive story by Sean Davis at The Federalist reveals that President Obama’s PAC, Obama for America, paid nearly $1 million in 2016 to the law firm that retained Fusion GPS, the consulting group responsible for the infamous Trump “dossier.” According to Davis, Federal Election Commission records show the Democratic National Committee, Hillary Clinton’s campaign, and Obama’s PAC paid Perkins Coie more than $12 million last year alone.
        The article also notes that Neil King, Jr.—the husband of Shailagh Murray, one of Obama’s former senior advisors—went on to work for Fusion GPS shortly after the election. King was a longtime Wall Street Journal reporter who, while at the Journal, was also a colleague of Glenn Simpson, one of Fusion GPS’s founders. These links were never divulged in any of King’s election coverage for the Journal. These ties could explain the Obama White House’s almost daily attention to the Trump-Russia collusion plotline, fueled largely by Josh Earnest, Obama’s press secretary.”

    The existence of intercepted messages is real. Meaning that written and spoken conversations did happen. These conversations (ie messages) were picked up by intelligence organizations in multiple countries. The messages do exist in intelligence databases. Individuals with access to those databases did run queries to retrieve the stored messages.

    Could it be that the actual content of those messages is misleading, inaccurate, or perhaps a purposefully scripted, paid for, orchestrated all out lie?

    Specific to the Steele dossier, were Sources A, B, C etc essentially hired to put on a show? Were they told what to say and compensated for it?

        Adding thousands of employees to federal agencies towards the end of his term in office, and its not his fault his underlings did not vet them properly.
        Increasing the number of people authorized to classify or declassify materials, not his fault those people chose to abuse their authority to declassify and remove evidence.
        Increasing the number of “professional” employees within key parts of the executive, who cannot be removed until a lengthy process is exercise, not Obama’s fault because he just followed the recommendations of his senior staff.

    Never mind the Russians, I want to know what role my govt, the British govt, played in this, especially as the Head of GCHQ resigned shortly after the Steele lies were published. As a Conservative Party member, I attended events before the US election where Tory MPs were wearing Hillary pins.

      As folks here in the US are realizing, there is no distinction between political parties as the majority of their members are part of the entrenched government establishment bent on preservation and NOT governing. The Tory MP’s wearing Hillary pins are the equivalent of our neverTrump RINO’s.

    Right.
    So if there are ever any prosecutions over criminal actions by FBI DoJ, which branch of govt will run those prosecutions?
    Who is there in charge who is not tainted by association with the “alleged” perps?
    How is that certain?

    I reckon the Nome Alaska police dept would do a better job of nailing them than a half hearted internal effort deliberately riddled with mistakes for the appeals.

    -CRIMINAL CONTEMPT
    -FALSE STATEMENTS
    -CONSPIRACY TO LIE TO THE COURT
    -DENYING CIVIL RIGHTS UNDER THE COLOR OF LAW
    -PERJURY

    Sundance, I think I figured out what your next article should cover, thanks to all the Treepers here putting our heads together….
    ———————
    The Order…..
    ———————
    https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/7/73/Appointment_of_Special_Counsel_to_Investigate_Russian_Interference_with_the_2016_Presidential_Election_and_Related_Matters.pdf
    ———————
    So I thoroughly read the order and tracked down all the attendant laws that go with it, and here’s what I found:

    (c) The Special Counsel and staff shall be subject to disciplinary action for misconduct and breach of ethical duties under the same standards and to the same extent as are other employees of the Department of Justice. Inquiries into such matters shall be handled through the appropriate office of the Department upon the approval of the Attorney General.
    and;
    (d) The Special Counsel may be disciplined or removed from office only by the personal action of the Attorney General. The Attorney General may remove a Special Counsel for misconduct, dereliction of duty, incapacity, conflict of interest, or for other good cause, including violation of Departmental policies. The Attorney General shall inform the Special Counsel in writing of the specific reason for his or her removal.
    ———————————–
    No. 1. Was Lisa Page reprimanded? Did she receive any punishment?
    No. 2. What were Lisa Page and Peter Strzok disciplined for? I’ve read in some places it was because they were sending each other texts on government phones, which is ridiculous.
    No. 3. This misconduct on their part and the ultimate punishment has to be okayed by the Attorney General, not Robert Mueller.
    No. 4. Where are Lisa Page and Peter Strzok today?
    No. 5. What areas did they investigate? What happened with their work product?
    ————————
    Now, for the really big one, the Nunes memo presents a particular problem for Mueller. Here’s Mueller’s duties. He must investigate:
    “(ii) any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation.”

    Mueller must now investigate all the issues raised in the Nunes memo or be charged with dereliction of duty and/or misconduct……

      exactly…as i mentioned before, here are some other questions for mueller:
      did you separate strzok and page and ask them about various texts, especially the insurance policy text?
      did you find out if the andy referred to in text is mccabe?
      did you question mccabe?
      why did you not reveal any of this to congress, ie, the various committees concerned with the matter?
      why did you stonewall congress?

      do you not understand the above as part of your mandate? if so, how circumscribed is your mandate? and if so, why would you charge manafort and gates?

      etc

    • You are on the right track. The Mueller investigation has Found both Obstruction of justice and Russian collusion however it is all on the part of the Democrats, DOJ, and FBI. At this point the Republicans would do better to support the Mueller probe and demand that he follow his mandate and take all his proof and begin an investigation of the Democrats, DOJ, and FBI. Mueller already has the same proof congress has seen. If Mueller does not do a 180 degree turn in his investigation then he also will be obstructing justice, I think that the republicans would do better following this line of attack rather then trying to shut down Mueller’s investigation,

    Did bo weaponize these institutions to help elect hc queen? Certainly not. Of course he did that for his own use. Remember the wire taps on AP phones and the phones of a particular reporter as well as his parents? How about the weaponized IRS, used to suppress groups on the right? And I seem to recall bo replacing the leadership of his Secret Service; and for a while there, every few weeks, we’d read bo had relieved yet another high ranking military officer for some issue. All of these men were replaced with people of bo’s approval.

    And it couldn’t be possible that bo’s henchmen were working in the shadows during the 2012 elections, could it?

    So much corruption; so little time.

    What are the chances that there is a JAG investigation ongoing ? The Congressional committees are being used to get info out to the public so that when Military Tribunals are announced, the public already has the info. Tribunals are the only resource available to perform many of the needed trials. If found guilty, punishment could be swift. The country could begin the reforms and consolidation of complete agencies. Just a pleasing thought that I had….

          legally, you may be correct, but the optics would be terrible…it would be spun as a military coup, or some version of martial law—and the 70-90 percent of the country which hasnt been following the details closely would be persuaded to ‘resist’ such a move….

          the country would need a year or 2 of striking revelations to prepare the ignorant populace for military tribunals

    Where is Justice Roberts in all of this? As a former attorney I can tell you that if I lied to a Federal judge, I would get dragged into that court and read the riot act. I would likely be jailed on the spot for contempt. Moreover, whatever case I was involved in prosecuting might well get dismissed with or without prejudice. But, here we have one or more Federal judges seemingly okay with being made utter fools of before the public. Neither does Justice Roberts doesn’t seem to have a problem with the conduct before the court. That’s troubling.

    Okay, I have a couple of questions:

    1. Why does the Congress not refer anyone for criminal investigation? They sure issued a letter re: Steely, a British guy. Why not, say, Comey?
    2. Why doesn’t anyone ask whether the judges who signed these “warrants” ever watch TV or read newspapers? How come they never heard about Steele Dossier being “salacious and unverified?”
    Could be fooled once… but 4 times? Do they live in a bubble? Something is wrong with this picture. Looks more and more like criminal conspiracy and lawlessness.

    Is there at least ONE person in the DoJ and FBI and yes, FISC, who is NOT thoroughly corrupt?

      First the public has to be made aware of the scope of the problem and THEN we can start building the gallows.

      Remember all the Trump IS HITLER rhetoric during and after the election? THAT was part of the ‘insurance plan’ to make it very very tough to dismantle the subversive Civil Service that Obama built.

      To keep from having ‘Blood in the Streets’ as Loretta Lynch wants, President Trump can’t just do what is needed. Obummer handed him, not a government but a ticking bomb and he first has to defuse it before he can dispose of it.

        Meanwhile, the base is getting angry and cynical and Mueller is poised to strike. The results of the Midterms are not guaranteed either. In short, they are running out of time.

        Looks like nobody wants to make a first move. They all waiting for the IG report which might come out too late.
        I don’t think the GOPe leadership wants anyone indicted to begin with (and not just because they don’t have guts or try to elucidate the far left crowd who does not even need a valid reason to riot), otherwise it would have been done already.

    This is an interview I won’t soon forget.

    I watched it this morning and haven’t been able to shake the expression on Kallstrom’s face. It’s seared in my memory. It is in sharp contrast to the weird grin on Ratcliffe’s face.

    I can’t quite put my finger on it – was it despair, shame, disgust or all three?

    I will be praying for divine intervention in the form of a whistleblower.
