Devin Nunes Discusses Andrew McCabe Firing…

House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI) Chairman Devin Nunes appears for an interview with Sean Hannity to discuss the firing of Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe and ongoing investigative issues.

Chairman Nunes points out the HPSCI is not related to the Office of Inspector General report that flows through the oversight of  the Judiciary Committee (Goodlatte).  While there can be overlap, such as the FISA issues, Chairman Nunes oversight encompasses the intelligence community writ large, not specifically the FBI or DOJ.

Nunes’ primary intelligence oversight encompasses: DOJ-NSD, FBI-CoIntel, NSA, DoD (Pentagon), CIA, ODNI, and DoS (State).  The Chairman of the HPSCI is also the head figure within internal oversight for the Gang of Eight and the highest ranking member of legislative branch oversight over the intelligence apparatus of U.S. government along with the Speaker of the House of Representatives.

      WRONG .. With all due respect 🙂 .. Had Hillary won we would be witnesses to the biggest foreign spy scandal in history . And most like be at war with Russia.

      BUT NO ONE CONNECTS THE DAMN DOTS. Russia Gate was NOT going to stop because Hillary wins. Get that sht out of your head. CARTER PAGE would be the key witness in convicting Trump.. Not this liar we have now playing the victim .

      I find it disturbing how many people who know a lot on this topic miss the motive f the the Liberals. We WHERE CONQUERED AND WE WOULD HAVE BEEN SILENCED HAD TRUMP LOST.

      If you can not see the big picture and ITS PLANNED END GAME you are unable to see which players are doing what and for which side… People you hate “Comey” and people you love “Gowdey” are playing rolls right in your face and most are missing it . And their rolls are NOT what you have been sold.

      You and so many others see that ….. But you fail to see the full picture. ( I am long winded I am sorry, But what I wrote below really matters )

      None of this Russian b/s would have gone away as you and others state. Because there was already a FISC court ruling proving the crimes of the DOJ/FBI/Outside Contractors and 3rd parties violating our most secrete data base. This WOULD have had to be dealt with NO MATTER WHO WON…. NO MATTER who….

      Thats a fact no one weighs in with. So lets … Weight … it … In …

      Had Hillary won. That FISA warrant would have COVERED the 11 Months of illegal spying that was discovered by NSA Rodgers. The warrant being a foreign spy warrant makes all past actions part of 1 big investigation. The warrant also created the defense all the spying was based on Probable CAUSE …Because UNDER OUR CONSTITUTION with out Probable cause the law can NOT touch you. You need an accusation , or some evidence the person of interest WARRANTS FURTHER LAW ENFORCEMENT ACTION.

      Welcome Carter Page to this probable cause issue. A man placed in Team Trump by the REPUBLICANS . A man already with a past history of working with the FBI and Russians..

      This is SEVERELY IMPORTANT .. It was NOT AN OPTION for the Swamp to NOT lay the ground work to protect themselves from there own crimes. It was a MUST. This FISC ruling was not going away.. Hillary and her clan needed a Benghazi video moment at the very least to defend there 11 months of WARRANT-LESS Searches and spying.

      IF HILLARY WON the narrative would go like this…

      Carter Page would have been the star witness on Trump Russian collusion. And the man would not just have destroyed Trump and his movement but caused a WAR with Russia . NEVER EVER THINK this was going to stop because “Hillary won” That ship sailed with Rodgers and FISC. Her plan and the swamp’s plan was to END what you and I call America.

      If you doubt this even for a millisecond…. Remember Trumps own words. ” You have no idea how close we came”. . . “If I did not win , Us I mean us. If we did not win ohhhh boy you have no idea what would have happened”

      THAT is the big picture , EVEN OUR good folks here at the Last refuge are reluctant to mention it or discuss it.

      Because it is so vile and goes way beyond political corruption right into the conquering of the Nation we love.. And once people realize this AND YOU WILL realize it .. All hell may break lose ..

      This may help some reluctant folks.. Hillary wins . Every agency that controls every report around the world shown to America & every news release & every crisis world wide was 110% owned by the LEFT . test this . CIA ? FBI ? DOJ ? Presidency ? Keep going EPA ? ODNI ? Homeland Security ? WHAT AGENCY that steers American policy WAS NOT HEADED BY A OBAMA / CLINTON Scum bag ? PLUS THE SUPREME COURT ..

      Do you think they could NOT have told us with Proof , Putin and Trump where connected at the hip ? Do you really think all this would have gone away and a crisis would be ignored by the people who control every single lever of power inside our government ?

      If you think Hillary was going to ignore this fake Russian story you are crazy. IT would not be FAKE. Trump would be in jail and we would be at war….. Thats what Hillary had in store for us.. WAKE UP folks . You have to wake up and see this big picture. I am NOBODY I get that..But many millions of us “Nobody’s” joined together and elected Trump..

      I matter you, matter and America matters . That filthy bit%$ was going to destroy this nation.. And losing a few cities would not have caused her to blink to achieve her goal.

In time we may see Trump, Sundance and others as ingredients similiar to George Washington and the Founders. Carter Page and the cast of thousands are just various specks in the frosting.

            ***ARAMCO
            “…. All told ARAMCO now controls over one-quarter of the world’s crude oil reserves. In the wake of the 1973 Arab oil embargo, ARAMCO embarked on the most expensive single industrial project in the history of mankind, a massive petrochemical and refining complex at Jubail. The company also runs the world’s largest deep water port at Ras Tanura on Saudi Arabia’s Persian Gulf shoreline.

            The Saudi government claims to have nationalized its domestic oil sector. The glossy ARAMCO World, which tends to show up in public libraries and dentist offices throughout the US, is the propaganda arm of the company. It boasts that the Saudi government took a 25% stake in ARAMCO by 1973, increased its stake to 60% in 1974 and by 1980 owned 100% of ARAMCO, now known as Saudi ARAMCO. The real story is a bit more complex.

            Until at least 1988, the four US oil giants operated ARAMCO, even if the Saudi government did, in fact, own it. Exxon’s 1990 10K filing to the US SEC lists Exxon Overseas Corporation as a wholly-owned subsidiary, then states that Exxon Overseas owns a 28.33% stake in Arabian American Oil Company. Until he suffered a massive stroke, King Fahd had chaired the Supreme Council of Saudi ARAMCO, but board members include the former chairmen of Exxon and Chevron as well as a prominent US banker.

            No matter who actually owns ARAMCO, the Four Horsemen still call the shots through management contracts, service agreements and joint venture activity. These downstream niches are where the real profit margins are to be found and the Four Horsemen have generally been moving in this direction since the early 1980’s in their worldwide operations…..”

    I love the thought of Devin Nunes delving into the abuse of NSA raw data…all the illegal snooping that the O-team did, on anyone that they wanted to.

    It has been referred to as “unmasking” of NSA data.
    But that word makes it seem so…innocent.

    It was Illegal Spying:
    Snooping on people, with malicious intent.
    Poking around in people’s private conversations.
    Looking for political ‘dirt’ to use…for who knows what sinister reasons.

    Calling that “unmasking” is so grossly inadequate to convey the seriously Illegal Nature of what they did.

      Remember that the Greatest White Hat of them all is planning on retiring in the very near future. Admiral Mike Rogers is willing, able and prepared to testify in as many cases as needed. He oversaw the NSA throughout that period of time.

      He caught them red handed back in April 2016 running To/From queries and passing the information onto Fusion GPS, he than caught them abusing About queries in October of 2016 and put a stop to them. On November 18th, he took it upon himself to inform our President Elect at the time. The next day our President Elect moved his entire transition team to his property in NJ from Trump Tower.

      That is when the POS had to realize that our Lion 🦁 was aware and they had to go into overdrive which caused them to be even more sloppy.

        Oh yes, Fle…and in addition to what Rogers caught them red-handed doing, he can also assist in directing Nunes’ investigators to look at other suspicious-looking ‘about queries’ in all the other agencies.

        As head of the NSA, Rogers could conceivably look back over the entire 8 years of the O-regime, for suspicious queries…couldn’t he?

            And then compare that with the payments made to her Clinton Foundation.

            Knowing how corrupt Hillary is, I cannot help but wonder if she used NSA data to ‘shake down’ people…to get them to pay those millions into her ‘foundation’.

            Hillary has a long history of abusing Intel…like when she got caught with all those FBI dossiers on Republicans, when she and Bill were in the WH.

            “The NSA database, with its large and ongoing collection of electronic communications, can be accessed through the NSA’s cloud,” says one former senior intelligence official. The NSA can audit it and find out if analysts are violating rules. The NSA does not audit the CIA’s cloud, which is audited by the CIA’s IT people and Amazon Web Services employees who are given security clearances. Says the former official: “There are people in the CIA, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, and the National Security Council staff who can move information from the NSA cloud into the CIA cloud. That seems the likeliest scenario to explain how Obama officials first unmasked US persons and then shared information without leaving a trail that could be audited independently, or immediately, at every step.

      His administration showed no regard for OUR civil liberties, something the left is usually so valiant about. Look at the IRS scandal. Everything he touched went against what is good and right about this country and what it stands for.

    How quickly folks forget things Obama’s DoJ did a few years back. From May 16, 2013 “California Congressman  Devin Nunes (R-CA) says that the Department Of Justice tapped phones in the rooms where Congress members speak informally and off the record, eat, sleep and socialize when they’re not on the floor of the House of Representatives or in their individual offices(Washingtonsblog.com) AND on 5/13/13 in wired.com we have this: “The Department of Justice secretly obtained phone records for reporters and editors who work for the Associated Press news agency, including records for the home phones and cell phones of individual journalists, according to the AP, in what the agency characterized as “serious interference with AP’s constitutional rights to gather and report the news.” May 20, 2013 this headline appeared in Slate.com: Government Spying on Fox News Reporter Even Worse Than AP Case (regarding reporter James Rosen).This activity is what was discovered then, while more abuse was on the way against Trump. Do we see a pattern here with the Obama Justice Department? PS no one talks about the Obama IRS anymore but is part of the pattern of abuse.

      When Sally Yates refused to uphold Trumps travel ban, she was fired and Boente was picked from a list of 3 possible replacements. The list of 3 was provided by the Obama DOJ. Shortly after taking the acting AG role, he signed off on one of the FISA extensions extending surveillance of the Trump team. He resigned after a short stint as acting AG of the DOJ.

      This guy is now the head lawyer for the FBI. Hand picked by Wray.

  13. I find it disturbing to see people like Brennan trying to act like they’re the righteous people in this scenario. I suppose they have nothing to lose at this point – they know they’re likely to end up in prison, so they’ll fight tooth and nail, but it’s still disturbing, especially since they held so much power at so terribly abused it. It’s scary to think these people had the power to spy on innocent people and that they abused it in such a cavalier manner.

    I also expect that, if it all really does come out, it’s going to be much, much worse than any of us, even here, imagine. I’ve spent some time digging through various Wikileaks disclosures, and, at some point, someone’s going to have to do a deep dive into what happened at the CIA. We’ve mostly heard about what happened within the NSA, and obviously it was bad. That said, it certainly appears that the CIA intentionally built what amounts to a backup copy of all the NSA records, along with the search capabilities, but in a manner that made it harder to audit and with less accountability. They spying capabilities are also much broader than we generally assume. I remember people making fun of Kellyanne Conway for talking about microwaves spying on people. Now, she was probably wrong about microwaves, but virtually any device with a CPU, a speaker, and an internet connection can be converted into a spy device, and that includes cell phones, TVs, stereos, and all sorts of other gear. It’s worth noting that a cell phone doesn’t have to be “on” to be used to listen in, either – it can listen in as if it were on speakerphone even when one is not on a call. The same is true for smart TVs.

    Now, imagine you were one of these people spying on Trump. Imagine you’ve basically passed the point of no return – you know that, if you’re ever held accountable, you’re going to prison for a very long time. There’s a point where such people basically have nothing left to lose, so why would they exercise restraint? I’m not saying they all went to absolute extremes in spying, but I would be surprised if none of them did. There were just too many people involved. And that means that it’ll likely come out that they were hoovering up all the data they could, not just on Trump, but on everyone in his orbit, probably including his friends, family, business contacts, allies, you name it. They were looking for dirt anywhere they could find it (and we’ve seen a lot of leaks that suggest they were looking in all kinds of places).

    When that comes out, it will be hard not to follow that thread further. Did they spy on the press? Congress? We know they did, at least to some extent, as Brennan already apologized for some of that. That also brings up an interesting question – how did he get away with an apology? He conspired to abuse power to spy on lots of people, and then did, including many members of Congress. That’s a violation of Title 18 Code 242, carrying a prison sentence of up to 10 years per instance – surely enough for Brennan to be behind bars for the remainder of his life. There’s also no statute of limitations. Yes Congress accepted an apology? That suggests, to me, that he blackmailed them into not pressing for prosecution, because he had dirt on all of them.

    I think the abuses within the IC community are probably far, far worse than we can imagine, and I think some of the resistance is people not knowing how bad it is, some is blackmail, and some is a recognition that this genie can’t be put back in the bottle after it’s out. The fact that things got as bad as we know (and are probably worse) suggests that this was widespread and generally tolerated by a large cross-section of people within these agencies. In other words, they were all doing it. The Strzok-Page texts suggest something along these lines, as they talked about getting new phones to get around the text capture requirements, and in doing so alluded to the fact that basically all the other departments were simply ignoring the law, so why should they have to follow it? In essence, the deep state felt above the law, they were all in on it, all flouting it, and they all just basically accepted that that’s the way things work.

    This is really, really bad.

    With all that said, this needs a name. Not a -gate, because that makes it seem like less than it was. This was sedition, but of a scale we’ve never seen. The dictionary definition of sedition is, “conduct or speech inciting people to rebel against the authority of a state or monarch.” In this case, it wasn’t just a soft coup, or rebelling against the authority of a duly elected President, though it was also that. The sedition started even earlier. The Declaration of Independence states that, “Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.”

    In other words, the authority of our government derives from the consent of We the people. When people like Brennan and McCabe abused their power to violate our right to choose our own President, and when they attempted to remove that President, their sedition was against We the people. The seditious conspiracy was against us.

    To simplify that into an easy-to-state phrase, as this was an act of sedition by the Deep State, I propose we use the shorthand DeepSed to refer to the totality of the various seditious conspiracies and acts of sedition committed by those within the Deep State against our President, our elected representatives and We the People of the United States.

      rationalnational mentioned “no statute of limitations” on Title 18 Code 242. That is such welcome news to me. I take heart that even though many people were not prosecuted previously for various things, that there is some chance they could be prosecuted some time in the not too distant future, for such spying. The fact that they were not prosecuted before is simply a reflection of the corruption that has all but totally taken over our courts and executive and legislative branches and even the fourth estate (fifth column actually). This administration unlike any other, will to the extent possible, correct this disgraceful state of affairs.

      I pray regularly for our PDJT and all those who wish to help him MAGA, and for their enemies to be even more ridiculous than they already are!

    Notably ABSENT from Nunes’ comments was any explanation of WHEN he will issue all those subpoenas for answers he has not gotten. He swore on several TV shows to subpoena the recipients of his 10 questions if they didn’t answer. They DIDN’T answer. WHY is he not following up with subpoenas. There has to be a good reason.

      Air time matters to a politician. It is often very hard to sort out what their saying durring this air time. ONE thing is for sure. Most of the documents and questions he is seeking are tied to the IG Investigation which is tied to a Prosecutor Sessions appointed to work with the IG. That means MOST of it will never reach Nunes or us until indictments are issued.

      No disrespect to Nunes. But many Republicans on his and other committees seeking this information WHERE IN ON IT WITH HILLARY. An obvious fact, Yet rarely talked about. And because many Republicans where involved you can rest assured Sessions/Horowitz and others are not eager to hand over evidence to the crooks it implicates . There DISCOVERY will come once there indicted

    Nunes called for a prosecutor to be assigned to these issues. But he never used the term “second special counsel”. Very interesting. He seems to be asking for a point of contact at the DOJ to make criminal referrals to.
