Chairman Devin Nunes Discusses The Massive Ramifications of “Spygate”…

In addition to FISA abuse and fraud upon the FISA court, there is an increased likelihood the Obama CIA, DOJ and FBI ran agents and operatives into the Trump campaign.

        I’ve seen hints recently that the draft may be complete, and now under revision based on eg responses from employees who figure prominently in the report (and their legal counsel). Usually that means a couple of weeks or so till published release. But I’d like to see firmer hints that the final-revision stage is under way before feeling more certain about that…

        PATIENCE!

        The anticipation of DEATH is far worse than DEATH itself!

        The Democrat party is going down the toilet each and everyday.

        Rep. Devin Nunes is ready, willing and able to fight on our behalf each and everyday. What he is asking for is the whole bowl of wax. If he gets the documents he is requesting, it becomes ABSOLUTELY positive that they were trying to frame our President and those that worked for his campaign. Notice that Devin also asked about other Senators and House Members. That means he knows the answer to that question as well.

        The poll above will even be worse because their messiah will be sitting with his minions in a Federal Prison for a very long time.

        I can wait patiently knowing that we are heading in that direction!

              OK reply to quarrel with meself. LBJ was worse president than FDR. Roosevelt did fight wholeheartedly for USA to win WWII, though he did use the war to magnify fedgov over every part of the economy, and recruited communists and progressives into every department and program.

              Johnson did everything bad. Johnson ruined race relations and welfare, deepened the VietNam war while making it un-winnable, and began the deepstate progressive control inside all government.

          @Flep…I agree! We should be enjoying the slow, relentless exposing of this conspiracy for the torment it is causing the perps. Yes, we all want to hear “Guilty” in a courtroom, but even the perps would then be somewhat relieved. Much better to do this slowly, so they spend sleepless nights sweating blood. Yes, the conspirators will organize false flags to distract the public, but it won’t help the perps. Like “The Tell-Tale Heart”, the evidence trail will be pounding away from under the floorboards, driving them crazy.
          Another reason to be patient is human nature. If it were all revealed, indictments, convictions, sentences and all by tomorrow, by election day many people would have to be reminded of it. If this ratchets up after Labor Day, it can build into a crescendo by early November.Fine timing.

            I agree patient is a virtue in this case. If indictments came shortly after the election the nation would not like it as divided as it was. But every day, day after day more and more people are finally realizing what a real president does. They are seeing how horrid the pre-Trump administration really was. They are seeing how much President Trump is doing, can do, and is committed to do! Every day this continues is building momentum to actually allow the American public call for justice.

          All fair points. But bringing to justice the criminality among the DOJ/FBI, broader intel community, and others throughout our sprawling government isn’t about politics, or pushing poll numbers. It’s about equal and fair application of the law. Really not helpful to mix the two goals, because it undermines credibility.

          I’m not saying the dems don’t richly deserve to tank over this. But that’s not what seeking justice is about. (Remember too that once you get outside members of the administration, (e.g., congress and its staffers) you’re looking at a bipartisan effort.)

          The goal here isn’t to “play” this to maximum political benefit. The goal is actually having a clean and functioning Justice Department. I know we all know that but it’s easy to let well-justified rage blur the objective (or at least how we talk about it).

      Short of President Trump declassifying everything in the next few weeks, it will be pushed back so the Democrats have the best possible chance at taking the House. This is what the entire game is about. Because once the Dems have even a one-vote margin in the House, they can run their impeachment charade on the country in preparation for 2020.

          Eric Holder was found in contempt of Congress. What has happened to him because of it? Nothing will happen unless the people who are being implicated act against themselves — which they will not do..

          We have had several years of great sound bites with nothing happening. A friend on FB mentioned Peter Fonda and several people asked him why he mentioned Peter Fonda. You know why he mentioned Peter Fonda, I know why he mentioned Peter Fonda, but Peter Fonda’s comments on the President’s son have not gotten big play in most media and many people do not know about them.

          The point? We have a Congress that has no real power to do anything about the things they have uncovered and those things are not going to be heard by most people. Therefore this dog and pony show is not really going to make an impression on the voters.

          If the President had done even one tenth of what the swamp has done, he would have been impeached by now and probably would have been arrested. Meanwhile all we get is sound bites. If they would at least make one person do a perp walk I might be a little more optimistic. How long ago was the Brexit vote and has that happened yet? The left is still blocking that from being implemented. They control the narrative. We may have the high road but if the bridge ahead is washed out nothing will happen, and I see no indication that the bridge is open. We are getting lots of tourist brochures on how wonderful things are on the other side of the bridge but not a thing on the condition of the bridge.

      Don’t worry, I think this is by PDJT design. The bad information will continue to drip out until the Mid Term election and rain down to Democrats like Chinese water torture. Everyday more Americans realize how criminal the Democrats are and slowly sink in. There is no defense for their actions and they continue to defend indefensible position. PDJT knows he is not colluded with Russia and Mueller can continue and find nothing. More and more people finds out that the Democrats are actually colluded with foreign governments against Americans.
      Alternatively, Trump can order the DOJ and FBI to declassify everything. It will look like political motivation to lot of people even though it is not. The avalanche of bad news from DOJ for the Democrats will last 1 or 2 news cycles and no one will remember it anymore. The Republicans feel good and stay home for the mid term. The Democrats are eager to get revenge and vote in drove at mid term. That will turn Congresses to Democrats and MAGA agendas are in totally jeopardized.

      Be Patient.

        There is an increasing percentage of “the public” who are bypassing the MSM and going to web-based media such as Daily Caller, gateway Pundit and a dozen or so other conservative (to one degree or another) news / opinion sites. Look at the viewership numbers of our favorite TDS networks: CNN, MSNBC, ABC, NBC, CBS etc. They aren’t doing so well.

        From Breitbart Editor-at-large John Nolte on May 10th:
        “…when compared to the full month of May last year, the far-left CNN is already in a total ratings freefall by 20 percent and more….

        …Last month I sat in a waiting room with close to a dozen strangers from every imaginable walk of life. When someone suggested putting some news on waiting room TV, one lady said, “As long as it’s not CNN,” and the whole room burst out laughing.

        CNN is widely seen as a joke in America, something that will take years for the anti-Trump channel to shake if it ever decides to stop with the wildly partisan and dishonest hysterics.”

        So although lots of people are still being fooled. by MSM lies, plenty of others are no longer tuning in.

        If investigations and prosecutions are being timed for politics/electoral effects — i.e., justice delayed and manipulated for political gains — that is not reform. I’m not at all claiming moral equivalence or saying it would be criminal or corrupt — but it still qualifies as abuse of public office, and we should expect the “white hats” we supporting to fix what’s wrong will behave better than that.

        I’m not naive — all political actors inherently act within a context or backdrop of politics. But there seems to be a growing fervor and approval that the investigation and prosecution of spygate should be part of an electoral strategy. I don’t think that’s what’s driving Trump. Sure it’s in the backdrop as it is with everything. But I believe and hope he’s focused on serving justice as swiftly as possible.

    Thanks Sundance; would love to get more on your take regarding:
    1. the non-action of NK after their China meeting. This went against your theory and I wonder your take on it.
    2. In correlation with the above you have, to my knowledge, never posted anything on the “Q” phenomena. Q stated that NK was not a proxy of China but instead a proxy of the “Deep State” or the “CIA”. This has been alluded to in Syria and Iran also.

    All of this coincides with the recent head on collision with the woman that beat out Sanford and clear indications that our government had been completely taken over by operatives for non-legal entities. Any comments or theories on the matter?

The republicans are checking PDT with a SC and getting what they want from him. Imagine what he would do if he got out of his box.

    I’m more and more convinced that Obama may not have been calling the shots on this whole thing. Given the behavior of John Brennan (on Twitter) lately, I think this whole thing was a rogue operation probably directed by the DOJ and CIA, with some help from the FBI. But make no mistake, Obama (via Clapper) likely knew what was going on.

    I think the CIA is completely out of control. I think it’s imperative that department is eliminated, divided, and brought under the DIA and State Department. They have so much power.

        I agree with you. I also follow Q closely.
        He (they, actually a group in Military intelligence) have given significant ‘proofs’ that he/they are in the know. Not a LARP.

        Q asks questions, drops ‘crumbs’, to get the anons digging for the facts, and some of the anons are coming up with amazing facts and connections. Certainly not all, but a lot of the anons, are truly computer geniuses, and are doing amazing work. Often when an anon comes up with the right answer Q will acknowledge it.

        Q is trying to wake people up to what has been going on for well over a hundred years. Not only in this country, but around the entire world.

        How the globalists (who control all of the worlds major banks, the MSM, and social media), the deep state, CIA, etc. and all of their puppets, have been trying to take control of the entire world and rule it under One World Order.

        BO and HRC are simply globalist puppets. Valerie Jarret, from Iran, was BO’s handler (she actually ran the whitehouse). Huma, under Alaweed from SA, was HRC’s handler.

        Remember when PDJT, right after he was elected, went to SA and met with King and now Prince Salman? Remember last November when Prince Salman took Alaweed down? One globalist down. A few more to go but PDJT is working on it.

        Our great President Trump is possibly the only man in the world who was willing, and able, to take them all on. And he’s winning! And our great military is behind him.

        Yes, I totally believe in Q (a group in military intelligence). And I applaud the diligent anons who are true patriots. They are all totally behind PDJT, and attempting to wake up the ‘sheep’ who have been brainwashed all of their lives.

        Q has rightfully warned everyone “be careful who you follow”. The globalists etc. are trying desperately to discredit Q and PDJT.

          I’ve seen many of the same reporting that Q does/has and he is VERY close within the Pres’ circle. Q is legit. Many times he/she cannot come out and say what s/he is seeing in the reports, hence the crumbs.

          Many times, but not all, intelligence is just open source information, later analyzed, and what qualifies it is as Confidential, Secret, or TS, in most cases, is the WAY it is collected. Q knows this and so not to break the law (which is ironic in all of this, right?!) has to throw out “hints” to allow the Anons know that they already know “this” information. Also why Q says “you have more than you know.” Q and Sundance are great at building timelines. We do this all the time in the IC is build timelines as it REVEALS many things once forgotten but already reported on. The MSM counts on We The People of forgetting when events happened to muddy the lies they tell.

          I really like the way Q and Sundance get people to think critically which is lost on today’s generation because we live in this instant society where Google, Bing, Amazon, et al bring everything right to our door or fingertips and we didn’t even have to THINK about it.

            Great observation about the distressing lack of critical thinking ability. It is increasingly lacking in the younger generations including the supposedly “college educated.” My granddaughter says that she wasn’t ever taught the concept through high school (she graduated from an above average HS in Ct.). So far in her freshman year of college she hasn’t run across any mention of it in any class. I am trying to help her learn the practice, how to question whats presented and seek confirmation or information counter to the argument but always determine as best as possible the veracity of the sources.

            One can find glaring examples of it right here in the comments sections on this site. I sometimes cringe at questions that are asked despite the direct answer already being in the article above or in previous comments in the same section. You are correct about people being overly conditioned to expect personally tailored answers as if they just queried a search engine. It’s a national problem and I readily admit to not knowing how it is resolved without changing the education methods.

    The problem here is that PDJT has effectively recused himself from his chief executive function since he’s the subject/target/whatever of the sham Mueller investigation. However appropriate or necessary that might be — it leaves no one in charge. At this point, we’re left with the Commander in Chief essentially heckling one of the agencies that he’s responsible for. Ultimately, President Trump is the ONLY one who can order the Justice Department to comply with lawful congressional oversight. That he can’t/hasn’t done so is a Constitutional crisis.

    PDJT didn’t create this problem and I’m not criticizing him — it’s just the fact of the matter. There’s a strong sentiment among the comments here always to support the president’s strategy; I’m not passing judgment on it either way — in fact I believe he’s weighing factors I can’t even imagine and making solid decisions. But it is simply a fact that inaction carries a price.

    The longer it goes on (the longer the President takes pot shots at DOJ/FBI, but does not threaten firing for non-compliance), it creates a leveling effect, where people are tuned out and regard it all as just tit-for-tat politics. Inaction at this point implicitly sends a double-message that is inaccurate and harmful: (1) that the insubordination/cover-up isn’t really all that serious, and (2) that the Mueller investigation actually *is* that serious, so as to continue to warrant Trump’s refraining to step in.

    Even those on his side can start to feel like it’s an abdication of responsibility. Andrew McCarthy framed the issue in a particularly pointed way this weekend:

    “It is reasonable to ask whether President Trump is more interested in the political advantage of posing as a victim of Justice Department/FBI abuse than in exercising his legal authority to expose and address any abuse. And if the Republican Congress continues to portray the controversy as a battle only against truculent executive officials — as if these officials do not have a boss — it is fair to ask whether this dispute is about accountability or theater.”

    Honestly, I think it might help the optics for Nunes, et al, to turn a little bit of fire at the president. Right now, the swamp narrative is that the real point of the Congressional insistence on documents is to somehow aid and abet Trump’s “obstruction” (totally nonsensical — but no one demands sense when it comes to criticizing Trump). At least if the congressional pressure finally landed on Trump — making clear that despite his tweets he’s actually PROTECTING the FBI/DOJ from transparency through his inaction — it might at least tweak the narrative a little bit and sharpen the call for Trump to act.

    But whatever. At a certain point Trump needs to validate that the evidence of corruption and criminality is as serious as it actually is. It’s time to act — and I’m extremely hopeful that the President’s tweet today seemed to signal that action is coming. Again, not criticizing the President. I believe he has the best of all possible reasons for handling things the way he does. We still have to be clear-eyed in reading the dynamics and upshot of the situation.

I think there will have to be a relative symmetry or coinciding timing-of-events between when the Mueller investigation fully and conspicuously disintegrates and some of the big reveals that hit major figures from the last administration. Mueller needs to decisively fall apart before it will sink in.

You guys might have sent Nimitz to the Philippines or Guam because that’s where you heard, read, deduced or “figured out” that that’s where Yamamoto and his carriers were operating.

        I stipulated to your points in my post. What I’m saying is, there’s a very real cost (any strategy has costs and benefits . . .it’s not a knock on Trump to examine the cost). And it may be *we* who are miscalculating the effect of not being vocal about the pressing, burning need for real and swift justice. Doing so is fully consistent with supporting our President. If an observation like mine is construed to be heresy against (or lack of faith in) President Trump, then it’s quite an insular bubble being created here . . .

          I’m not questioning your backing of POTUS at all.

          Yes, he has all of the information. But he has to bring it out LEGALLY, and at the right time, for maximum damage to all of these POS’s that are fighting him.

          Having Congress demand all of this not only brings it to the public eye, ands helps wake more people up, but brings it out legally. Some of the Congress people, like Nunes, are working with him on this.

          We would all like swift fast justice but the huge bloated government we currently have does not work that way.

          I totally trust and back PDJT and fully believe he will bring them all down. I’m thinking right before the elections this year. Hope I’m right on this.

    I did not see any reporting here at CTH that Deputy WH Chief of Staff for Operations, Joe Hagin, was dismissed (‘resigned’) the other day.

    • Apparently Joe Hagin has worked for every Republican president since Reagan.

    • His company is called Command Consulting

    • Specializes in global security, intelligence consulting, advising governments, corporations and billionaires

    • Hagin was involved in organizing the meeting(s) in North Korea

    • supposedly Hagin withheld information from the President during the summit meeting

    • Hagin has connections to NXIVM (the sex-slave cult that was run by Keith Raniere (arrested), exposed by Allision Mack (after she was arrested), which has ties to Clare Bronfman (youngest daughter of Seagram’s liquor billionaire family, sister of Sara Bronfman), Huma and Wiener, Stormy Daniels, et al, going back to 2007 if I recall correctly

    It’s incredible, the spiderweb of connections and corruption that permeates just about everything having to do with money and influence in the Devil’s Triangle (L.A. – NY – DC).

      ‘A potential gold mine’ for Trump’s summit planner

      White House deputy chief of staff Joe Hagin tapped his former business partner to plan some of the president’s highest-profile overseas events.

      By JOSH MEYER and ANDREW RESTUCCIA 06/25/2018 05:08 AM EDT

      Shortly before Donald Trump’s first international trip as president in May 2017, two Washington-based security contractors dined at the Ritz-Carlton in Riyadh as U.S. and Saudi officials began wrapping the president’s hotel in a security bubble.

      The pair, Steve Atkiss and John Meyers, were catching up as co-partners of a flourishing security and intelligence firm, Command Group, that at the time had a lucrative contract with a U.S. company operating in Saudi Arabia. But Atkiss was in Riyadh for something else: A volunteer role as the White House’s on-the-ground logistics lead mapping out Trump’s schedule at a summit with leaders of 55 Arab and Muslim countries.

      Atkiss had his Command co-founder, Joe Hagin, to thank for that plum position. A veteran Republican operative, Hagin left Command to become one of Trump’s deputy chiefs of staff, and was in charge of choreographing Trump’s entire swing through Saudi Arabia, Israel and three other countries.

      Hagin’s partnership with Atkiss since joining the Trump White House has drawn attention in the tight-knit community of presidential trip planners. Last month, some complained when Hagin’s former business partner was tapped for an even more high-profile and sensitive assignment than planning the Saudi trip – working as his on-site deputy in orchestrating the historic nuclear summit between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore…..MORE:

      The AG said he would consult with the DOJ Ethics Department. He did not. Instead he consulted with Deputy Assistant AG for Intelligence, Tashina Gauhar, who was previously hired by Eric Holder at his firm. Unsurprisingly they gave him bad advice.

      What is has become as clear as day is that the DOJ and FBI will protect their own no matter how corrupt and how many felonies have been committed. Everything is a giant kabuki. Nunes can get on Fox as many times as he wants. At the end of the day the GOP caucus including Speaker Ryan are all in on the scam and will do nothing like impeach Rotten Rosie.

      Only President Trump can do something. He can declassify every document that Nunes considers important and then let the public decide how important prosecution of the miscreants are. If enough people are outraged then maybe that gives President Trump the impetus to fire Sessions and Rotten Rosie and Wray and get a new team who can follow the law and make certain that the rule of law applies to even the high and mighty in government.

      The fact that President Trump has not taken any direct action when he knows that Rotten Rosie and Sessions and Wray are sandbagging the investigations says something.

      Bruce Ohr involved, too.

      “Not included in the written proffer was an additional offer from Assange: He was willing to discuss technical evidence ruling out certain parties in the controversial leak of Democratic Party emails to WikiLeaks during the 2016 election. The U.S. government believes those emails were hacked by Russia; Assange insists they did not come from Moscow.

      “Mr. Assange offered to provide technical evidence and discussion regarding who did not engage in the DNC releases,” Waldman told me. “Finally, he offered his technical expertise to the U.S. government to help address what he perceived as clear flaws in security systems that led to the loss of the U.S. cyber weapons program.” ”

      ____

      MY NOTE: Looks like Comey, probably in league with Brennan, sabotaged the CIA and the country’s national security by shutting down negotiations with Julian Assange. And why would they do that? Probably afraid JA would prove their DNC Russia hack was a deep state hoax against Trump. It is after all the CIA’s fault that their cyber weapons got stolen, not Assange’s. Why didn’t they safeguard them better. And it was the FBI’s fault for not protecting the country’s secrets. Just like the massive FBI failure in the Awan scandal. So, when JA gives FBI and CIA a chance to mitigate their national security failure, they declined. Ha.

      ____

      In recent days – mid June 2018 – a list of ICE agents info was first published by some Antifa group or such and THEN by “Wikileaks” – Truepundit noted JA would never have allowed that, looks like WIkileaks has been taken over to discredit them.
