Jim Jordan Discusses Strzok Testimony and Admission of Receiving Dossier Material from Bruce Ohr…

This is important.  This is VERY important. The collective DOJ, FBI and “allied contractors” activity in 2015 and 2016 is the origin of the political opposition research that developed into the Trump investigation via the FISA application(s). Jordan appears to be one of the few who understand the importance of the timeline.

Jim Jordan discusses FBI Agent Peter Strzok admitting he received the Dossier material from DOJ Deputy Bruce Ohr.  Bruce’s wife was hired by Fusion-GPS to assist in the formation of the Clinton funded opposition research that became the Steele Dossier.

      Unfortunately all this is interesting but in the larger scheme of things means nothing. We have no Justice System right now. The S.C. is running roughshod with no repercussions.

      For those that think the special counsel is just going to go away consider that the SC is the only leverage right now they have over Trump.

      Once Mueller is out of the picture Trump will be free to fire both Rosenstein and Sessions and get a real AG and team in the DOJ that will actually bring people to justice.

      Mueller knows that as do the participants in this coup. So they have crossed the line of no return at this point. They either have to remove Trump or they head to prison. That is why I expect the SC to keep going. They are on 2 missions, 1. Bring Trump down and 2. prevent Trump from taking control of the DOJ. So far they have been successful on the 2nd. But the first will be trickier. But with the money and crooks behind them I am confident we have not seen the lowest point of this investigation for Trump.

          Yes, you are absolutely correct. But, unfortunately, this is why you have to believe that Rosenstein has something on President Trump that is preventing him from declassifying documents that would expose the entire truth. There would be absolutely no other reason for him to not do this. I’m convinced that this involves either POTUS, Don jr., Kushner, or all three, and that Rosenstein is using whatever information he has on them to keep Trump in check. I’m also convinced that this information involves something related to their prior business dealings. If this is the case, Trump will not run for reelection in 2020 because he won’t want to be “hogtied” by these goons for another 4 years. I first mentioned this last year, and it just seems to be more evident as time goes on. It’s a shame, because all hell will fall upon us when Trump leaves office. It’s going to be awful, and all of us who have openly opposed these deep-state criminals (in these online news forums) are going to become targets.

    To me, what has been revealed so far shows that everyone’s concerns that Obama was creating a corrupt police state is validated. Obama and the D-Rats were not concerned about opposition because they would use blackmail and extortion to control them. If the opposition was “Too” clean, they would manufacture crap, which is what they have done with President Trump.

    Personally, I think more than enough evidence has been revealed up to this point in time to shut down the illegal activity of Mueller and Rosenstein. Their entire point is based on a lie and that has been clearly proven. Since they obviously know it was based on a lie, they are criminally conducting and acting like police state thugs and there is no place for that in the USA.

      The democrats use the old Soviet Russian methods of sexual blackmail to control the politicians. This is what Pizzagate was all about. Here is how this Russian method worked.

      Politicians would be invited to a party where they would be offered sex with minors. They would then be photographed in the act by hidden cameras.

      Those who would not be involved would be drugged and photographed in bed with with naked or even dead and mutilated children. They too would then be blackmailed.

      What we are seeing today with the FBI is just the tip of the iceberg. Washington has become rotten to its core. May God help President Trump to bring down the guilty.

        Having said that nobody should be surprised about the spectacle involving these democrats. They have all the more reason to oppose these investigations because it will end when connecting to the massive espionage and worse by the Awan gang employed by 40+ democrats and DWS. Imran Awan and his family have done more damage to our national security after the many democrats knew that they accessed and extracted thousands of files into drop box that included classified materials.

        Ask yourself why today we learned that Hillary’s emails were cc’d to an enemy state that included SAP/SCIF that she should never have had. Her greed saw the millions donated to her money laundering op selling SAP. I would not be surprised if the Awan gang cc’d her emails too since Huma’s use of the yahoo.com account was not equipped for the classified material. She forwarded every email and document that Hillary rec’d or sent since the day she started working for Hillary.

        What Huma and the Awan’s have in common is their muslim brotherhood affiliation.

        I wasn’t born until the war was ending, so I could be wrong, but it seems to me that something positive may have come from the awful treatment of Viet Nam veterans – a correction of course. I don’t recall seeing the honoring of vets very much as a child. But when Desert Storm ramped up, it seemed like a segment of the population was determined not to let the past transgressions be repeated. And while we still have demonstrators (i.e. Code Pink) and clueless morons like the rep who wants to medal Strzok, everywhere from an NHL game to a small-town supermarket, I have thanked, and seen others thanking, countless veterans. Maybe the vile behavior during the Viet Nam war helped the majority of us collectively realize how much we should appreciate our military.

    Bruce Ohr is the only one we have yet to hear from! We know that he has been talking to folks in the DOJ and FBI according to the Nunes memo. We also know that his wife Nellie Ohr played a virtual role on the outside as the go between Fusion GPS and the IC. These two have everything to lose in all of this.

    I don’t see Bruce falling on his sword for all these POS. What he and his wife were involved in takes this entire thing to a level they cannot hide behind. There were no damn Russians involved in 2015 and early 2016 when the Contractors were using the NSA database illegally to put together their opposition research to bury DJT had he not won the election.

    It is pretty simple in my book. They were going to use what they had to destroy and bury DJT, his name, brand and family for the rest of their existence on the face of this earth. Had he somehow miraculously won, it would turn into their insurance policy.

    Get Bruce and Nellie into separate rooms with our best military personnel and get the truth out there for the world to see and for Prosecutor Huber to use to nail each and everyone of these POS for what they did to our President and our country!

            And Wray is the snake Trump talked about. When the director of the FBI has your back, and the AG has your back, no way in hades are you going to help anyone uncover the plan to overthrow the government. And Strozk proved it.

      flep, you used the “M” word. Military. To my way of thinking the military would be the only support group for President Trump at this time. The thing that kept me from believing that it was in any way possible for the President to utilize his power as CiC to oppose political conspirators was Posse Comitatus. I have looked at it many ways but it seems there is no legal consensus or precedence on its use. I imagined it would be difficult for the President to justify using the military, any military, unless there was hardcore, DELIBERATE resistance to his authority.
      Could President Trump use military personnel to interrogate civilians who are / were employed by the federal government?

      In trying to see the forest thru the trees, I can’t help but view these hearings as just noisy drama of insignificant people trotted out in front of congress, and into the public eye, to answer questions of which very few go beyond the whole feigned “bias” outrage. dem v gop arguments over minutiae ad nauseum. Look instead at what is missing. What is missing are the tough questions, the follow-up questions, and the names of higher value targets. If we’re to trust that Huber is doing the dirty work, then enough of the daytime drama. It’s time to raise the bar and start hanging the really dirty laundry in plain view for all to see.

        There are some things that prevent Congressional effectiveness in these “hearings”:

        1. With each committee member having 5-7 minutes to ask a question and they go back and forth between Republican & Democrat, you will NEVER get answers because, except for some talking points sharing by the higher ups on the committee, there is no cooperation or a series of questions asked. We’d get better topic coverage with one Dem & one Rep. asking all the questions–like they do in civil depositions.
        2. Because this is political investigation work, one side will try to protect the witness like the Dems did today. You have the bru-ha-has going on so questions asked are forgotten, train of thought busted up and you get non-answers. [I once had a general counsel tell me that she purposefully knocked her coffee cup over whenever this one employee went off the rails–apparently several times–during his deposition. But you can call the question back up in depositions when you have a court reporter, unlike in Congress]
        3. There is too much dialogue/summations going into the question asking on both parties. And when you take up 2-4 minutes with obfuscating, nothing new comes up.
        4. If there hadn’t been a Republican coming up next while listening to a Democrat talking about the separated children, Trump pissing off our allies & Russia, Russia, Russia, I might have overused & seriously strained my third finger on both hands [I’m blocked from cussing at the tv when my husband is in the room].
        5. Most of the committee members in both parties are useless. Americans must take a very hard look at who they’re voting for–maybe applying that elusive merit concept that we should be applying to immigrants. I, for one, will not miss the likes of so many “retiring” politicians.

        We won’t get all the answers WE on CHT seek from Congressional hearings [because most of them are conducted behind closed doors]. Rep. Jordan got a very key point today, as did Gaetz. Even though Gowdy has gone to the dark side, he did make good points today. Mark Meadows wasn’t brilliant but he does ask the right questions, as did Goodlatte. I’m glad Sundance, et al. are here to help us filter thru the fog.

        Sundance said that the UK is the most dangerous place for Pres. Trump to go to because of the [uncontrolled] terrorism. Say a prayer for our President & Melania. They’re in danger for 4 days & then on to meet with Putin. Please God, keep them safe.

        This scandalous conspiracy to ‘stop’ and ultimately overthrow the President requires gavel-to-gavel TV coverage, and professional counsel interrogating witnesses at length, a la Army-McCarthy, Watergate, Iran-Contra, etc. Waiting for Jeff Sessions and John Huber to get off the pot seems fruitless, and even if Grand Juries are finally convened, they are secret until indictments are presented.

Charles asked him about today’s hearings and the Congressman said he watched a little bit of it and learned that Mueller’s team were all Dims!

Q is not the president, inasmuch as Q states things will happen that are in the presidentś capacity but do not happen – also, POTUS does not talk like that. Then Q is not who he says he is, and then Q is either malicious or foolish. I don’t know which, but in her book, Sidney Powell said that the first thing the Enron Task Force did was to work out the best possible defence the Enron defendants could make (and then block it by blocking those witnesses and that testimony). So my hypothesis at present is that Q is information gathering from conservatives, to find out what are the best ideas out there. The researchers are great people only they are helping the dark side and do not know it, is my view.

    Dirty evidence. Manufactured evidence.

    That’s *why* they sought to launder it.

    They were creating evidence out of thin air…in order to justify their Spying on Donald Trump.
    They had been Spying on him for a long time.
    So they had to create a ‘cover story’ for it.

    And their ‘cover story’ had to have a Foreign Element to it — to qualify for a secret warrant, which is only available from a FISA court.

    All this word salad about “unmasking” and “FISA abuse”, just makes it harder for average people to understand what this is about.

    Democrat political operatives in the FBI, manufactured false evidence to Frame Donald Trump…to cover up the fact that they had been illegally Spying on him.

      Please everyone, it was not just dropping eves. It was BUGGING Trump Tower with spying equipment! This is why President Trump moved his head quarters within 24 hours of Admiral Rogers visit.

      FISA 702 is basically spying on Americans; the actual “spying” part is 702. (They vacuum up your phone calls emails et al)

      Item 17 is “About Queries“, which allows queries or searches of content of email and phone conversations based on any subject matter put into the search field such as YOUR NAME.

      Fusion GPS and maybe Crowdstrike were allowed to use/abuse this system and given access to raw NSA data.

      With the Carter Page Title I FISA Warrant they switch from ‘passive’ surveillance (Abusing the NSA “About Queries“) to actively bugging the Trump Campaign with surveillance equipment.

      This shows how intrusive a Title I is:

      As an example: […]  The FBI obtained the recordings after Sporyshev attempted to recruit an FBI undercover employee (“UCE-1”), who was posing as an analyst from a New York-based energy company. In response to requests from Sporyshev, UCE-1 provided Sporyshev with binders containing purported industry analysis written by UCE-1 and supporting documentation relating to UCE-1’s reports, as well as covertly placed recording devices.https://www.justice.gov/usao-sdny/pr/evgeny-buryakov-pleads-guilty-manhattan-federal-court-connection-conspiracy-work

      “Lurking Lawyer here. 2 hop or three hop has been subject of debate and confusion at CTH. FISA 1978 did not specify hops but surveilance was generally limited to 1 or 2 bia prosecutorial discretion. After 9/11 the Patriot Act explicitly expanded to 3 to catch overseas Muslim terrorists, and this was further generally codified by the FISA Amendments Act of 2008. After Snowdon leaked the extent of surveillance in 2013, Obama responded to public outrage by issuing an EO limiting FISA to two hops. This was later codified by the FISA Amendments (renewal) Act of 2018. So Page was two hops. Still enough to surveil virtually the entire Trump campaign organization.
      The hops are ‘automatic’. Anybody Page contacted was surveiled, and anyone they contacted was surveiled. Example: Page talks to Kellyanne Conway, and she talks to Trump. Then Trump is automatically and legally wiretapped under current FISA law—presuming a valid FISA Court warrant, which is in serious question given the centrality of the unverified Steele dossier.”

      THIS is bad enough!

      BUT, they had this so well coordinated, so easily executed that it belies any suggestions that this was unique. It is becoming fairly obvious that this abuse of the NSA intelligence gathering technology and the secret, one-sided FISA process has been illegally abused on many other Americans going back many years.

      The FBI and DOJ criminals here know their shenanigans in framing DJ Trump are exposed. I think they’re seriously trying avoid anyone lifting up any more rocks….

        It was set up after the director of the CIA, John Brennan, received a recording of a conversation about money from the Kremlin going into Trump’s campaign coffers, the BBC’s Paul Wood reported.

        Brennan was so concerned about the intercepted communications that he established a counterintelligence task force, which included the FBI and the National Security Agency.

      Exactly right. The DNC claim that their computers had been ‘hacked’ by the Russians in the Spring of 2016 was perhaps the earliest part of the cover-up, as I described over a year ago:

    2) Wray – He is da man. Specialized in white collar crimes. If anybody can get things straightened out in FBI, it will be him.
    Current Status – Thinking of seriously disciplining any FBI personnel not following rules and those who do not follow rules, he is thinking to send them in training. Also suggesting to Peter Strozk .. don’t sweat about giving your text messages. You can review and give us what you think is relevant. /s
    3) Horowitz – IG’s got them by their b***s. He is going to drop a MOAB and it will be end of Mule-err.
    Current Status – He is busy investigating other related stuff and cannot answer most of the questions due to “matter”. He is so busy that he does not have time to return call to people who tries to reach him four times about important information related to his investigation. /s
    4) Peter Strozk / Lisa Page / Bruce Ohr / Bill Priestap/ etc. – Don’t worry fellas. They are still working with FBI means they have flipped and will help President Trump / Horowitz / AG.
    Current Status – Peter Strozk cannot wipe the smirk off his face during testimony. Lisa Page refuses in spite of subpoena. Ohr … well he was interviewed four times between election night and Inauguration. But don’t worry .. ALL IZZ WELL. Priestap .. He is still the head so he is definitely going to be the one working with the white hats. /s
    4) New hope on the horizon is Huber. New Gandalf to look at the mountain when the sun rises who will be bearer of the good news. /s

    Meanwhile, Flynn is bankrupt, Manafort is in jail, Comey is busy selling books and thinking of travelling as Canadian, Mule-err is busy recruiting more dems for his witch hunt, HRC still thinks that why she is not President today you may ask?

    Hi folks,
    I posted this a few months ago but as a reminder, Bruce Ohr has known and had dealings with Christopher Steele from at least 2009. Jim Jordan and Sir Sundance are right on target as the msm are ignoring and/or suggesting the story back to front. Ohr is Steele’s contact at the DOJ, Nellie was put in place with Fusion GPS as an arms length conduit. Steele could not ever be professionally vouched by the state department first and then FBI/DOJ as Steele was a confirmed source with FBI/DOJ from 2009.

    In 2009, Steele provided a dossier to Ohr regarding FIFA soccer irregularities, Loretta Lynch led this ‘matter’ from the very start as US Attorney, New York Eastern District. I find it incredulous Lynch is not aware of Christopher Steele as the FIFA matter was the main reason he was declared a credible source for FBI/DOJ to use in the first place. The lie being touted that Steele contacted state department officials due to FBI/DOJ inactivity is just that, a lie. This is to cover up initial FBI/DOJ contact and to conceal circular information reporting.

    N.b. Steele’s FIFA dossier was subsequently found to be based on “hearsay, gossip and rumour”.

    Hmmm…. yeah this is good to see Jordan asking about this. Important stuff.

    But is this really new?

    The Grassley letter dated February 28, 2018 to the OIG in the link below says the same thing.
    (Page 5, LIST ITEM #4): “[Ohr funneled allegations from Steele (and fusion) to the FBI; including from Steele after FBI cut ties with him]”

    This info is based on those 12 FBI 302’s on Ohr. I wonder what they say? Where does he claim to have obtained the documents? What else exactly was he asked by obama’s FBI?
    …. And only 2 working days after Brennan and clapper went batshit demanding rogers be fired for visiting trump tower.

    Grassley has read the 302’s. He and Lindsay graham both and ranking members. Long ago. Or at least what they are allowed to see based on the classification.

    The OIG is supposedly doing a report on them (that’s the request of the letter – could take more months)…. Horowitz gets to see unredacted ones right ? Or can they just be unclassified/unredacted now to save time.

    – Here, from the Jordan-Dobs clip at the top:
    @1:45
    Jordan: “… it’s what we always suspected, I mean it was in the majority memo back in January. But I believe this is the first time the doj and FBI admitted to that very fact.”

    Well, ok great. The FBI/doj could have stonewalled like usual, but Grassley read the 302’s already – 7 months ago. I guess they could have said, “no that’s incorrect”, thus implicating Ohr in lying to the FBI (whew – that charge again – and these guys don’t even record interviews – unreal).

    Ok, so 7 months later we have confirmed one thing… that we knew. Well it’s progress at least.

    — Also, strzok was adamant he never was “handed” documents from Ohr.
    Is he implying he was emailed them? …. uh, probably not. They were probably delivered intentionally to someone other than strzok, but it doesn’t matter (nor does it matter if Bruce got them from Nellie at their house or directly from Glen somehow. Don’t see how the transfer matters. We already know he met with Glen – Nellie was there to help make the dossier material right ? Not drive it around). Anywho,

    ________
    From the Jordan-Strzok clip in today’s earlier “Laundry” post (Expanded Importance Here):

    @0:10
    Strozk says he is not permitted by the FBI to answer whether he, himself knew Nellie Ohr worked for Fusion GPS.
    … just if he knew that.
    Why ? Why not just say “No” ?
    Rosenstein just said “No” when asked if he knew Nellie was Bruce’s wife. (I actually believe it’s possible he didn’t know)

    @1:00
    J: “Did Bruce Ohr give you any documents?”
    S: “Sir, same answer – not permitted to answer that question”
    Jordan states to chairman he thought FBI was gonna answer these questions (FBI handlers are shuffling around now [*]). Jordan continues on…

    @2:00 – Jordan reads the email from Strzok to all the “bad guys”:
    “…the Dossier reported in buzzfeed has differences from the one given to us [the cabal] by Corn and Simpson”.

    Strzok, in his email, is referring to one dossier (singular) here. One bundle of docs obtained from both those good looking guys at the same time. Maybe, over a nice lunch. Idk

    @3:00 – Jordan is moving back to Ohr and the ‘route’.
    J: “Ok and u said, well u wouldn’t answer the question if Ohr gave u documents. So I’m just wondering if that was the route. Was that the route the dossier went … glen simpson, to nellie Ohr, to her husband, then to you ?”
    S: “…. sorry can’t answer…”
    Blah blah awkward smile repeat
    Jordan is not addressing new questions, just talking to the chairman.

    @3:45
    Strzok is tapped on the shoulder.
    Dude recieves word (a note) that he can, after all, answer about the receipt of documents. It has been ~ 1-2 minutes from when the FBI started shuffling around [*].

    — (Now, Of course they can say Ohr gave the FBI docs. Duh…. it’s in the 302’s grassley has read, they know that. Someone with the brains back at Hq had to be checked with as these are just FBI handlers – Or it’s written up on the mobile phone and they are slow readers/unprepared).

    @4:25 *?!%?$!
    Strzok gives an odd answer. Jordan was asking about docs from Ohr.

    “Sir,… the documents we received from a different source in the initial batch in mid-September

    ___ Whoops.
    That info is definitely not in the Ohr 302’s. He is saying he got the “initial batch” in September and it wasn’t from Ohr. Note the word “batch”.
    ___ is he talking about Corn and Simpson set?
    This is probably public knowledge already I’m just forgetting … anyway wierd/wrong answer. Jordan agrees:

    J: “wait wait wait no no no….. I don’t understand. Wait, go back. Did u get documents from Bruce Ohr?”
    S: “um, yes. At some point we received material from Mr. Ohr”
    J: “… and what were those documents?”
    S: “Um, we received documents from mr. Ohr… um, not me … (he’s saying he didn’t personally receive them)… “.
    Strozk is now being Tapped on the shoulder so he stops talking.

    @4:48
    It’s been about a minute since he was handed the note [*] and then asked his handlers if there where any restrictions to his ability to respond.
    The lady handler behind him is wearing a *wait peter read this – one sec* face.
    He is now being given explicit directions how to answer. He is handed the mobile phone the handlers were using and he is reading from it.

    Jordan interjects: “I can maybe make it simpler …. Was it The Dossier?”
    Strzok is now robot reading from his phone…
    “Sir what I am authorized to tell u, in response to a question ‘Did u receive any documents from Bruce Ohr?’, The FBI has directed me that I may say …not me, not me… the FBI … received documents and material from mr. Ohr”.

    So whoops – what was that answer about the first batch? Guess it’s not new as Jordan doesn’t follow it.

    J: “ok but did you?”
    S: “No”
    J: “ok but the FBI did ?” (Remember we know this – just unsure what exactly at this time).
    S: “yes sir”
    J: “was it the Dossier?”
    @5:40
    S: “My direction from FBI is that the FBI received ‘material’…”
    J is interrupting talking about Nellie …. some idiot dem is calling for order. Sounds like guiteriez. There are like 5 people in the room. What a tool.

    The rest is a mess. Strzok looks loopy (tired) at this point. Jim is asking who “Simpson” in the email is and Strzok says:
    “my most recent FBI guidance was in response to a question about documents from Bruce Ohr. I have no direction how to respond to that”.
    Ie: he hasn’t got any new info from HQ on the handlers phone so, sorry Jim, the answer is I can’t answer…
    _________
    Ok holy cats I just like transcribed this video what a waste of time – there was like nothing there (I’m sure the “first batch” thing is common knowledge). Hope u guys didn’t read this far. I’m only posting this cause it took so long and I would go to bed even more pissed than I am now if I trashed it.

    BUT, Something that might possibly be missing is this:

    Jordan seems to be trying to find the trail of THE ONE DOSSIER (he says “The Dossier”). But in fact there may be many compilations of it right? Using the scheme of the circular information thing we are told about, where A tells B and then both A and B tell C, so C hears it twice etc…. there could have been ONE dossier given to the FBI from multiple fake sources to pump its credibility, but what good would that do them.

    ‘Maybe’ , …. just maybe, the FBI needed this “intel” to validate their FISA application. They wouldn’t want some singular, “salacious”, unresearched, complied dossier that is identical other than being obtained from multiple fake sources. It would “work much better” if they received bits of the intelligence from different sources that had plenty of overlap so as to help the appearance that they are real intelligence products from disparate sources supporting the same conclusions.

    — I’m probably stating the obvious or totally wrong. Sorry, it’s late here and I’m tired again. Anyway, this “admission” is in reality 7 months old. Hopefully they can pick up the pace a tad… and uncover more of what went on before July; maybe “they” were sloppier back then. Bet this “Simpson” character knows where some bodies are buried, in that regard. Too bad we can’t 702(17) his ***.

      Great post.
      I think one of the issues that is allowing Strzok / FBI to slip the net and others is using the term ‘dossier’ as they were so-called individual intelligence reports at any given time.
      See timeline list below, I would guess Strzok is referring to reports up to September 14, 2016. As I’m writing this I would make another guess there was FISA applications mid/late September & mid/late October 2016.

      Joshua, Excellent post!
      I’ve been wondering who “authorized” Strzok to respond, and why? A white hat? Of course not. And why did Goodlatte allow Strzok to read from a cell phone?
      Jordan repeatedly reiterated the sacrilegious trio of the Buzzfeed, McCain and 3rd version of the dossier. He’s certainly trying to link the ostensible overlap of these purported “investigative” findings for FISA warrants. I believe the inference being the FBI itself altered the last version.
      Gaetz (and Jordan) are honing in on pre-July 31st, 2016 FBI/DOJ activities prior to the “official” opening of the Trump Campaign. Recall Gaetz asked Rosie last week if the FBI/DOJ had made any payments related to the Trump investigation prior to July 31st. I believe he has one or more documents confirming such payments. Rosie “was not aware”.

      I honestly believe Jordan and Gaetz are attempting to establish “intent and motive” for the FBI/DOJ cabal “small group” soft coup. One can only hope.

    Another chink in the Obstruction Wall appears. The connection between the FBI and Fusion GPS is something the FBI/DOJ must continue to hide, just as they must hide the beginning of the Investigation. So long as they keep those links uncertain, they can hide behind “sources and methods” as a way to mask their cynical manufacture of an excuse to spy on the Trump Campaign. FISA warrants are the Golconda of a surveillance state because once the camel’s nose is in that tent, practically anything and everything can be done to anyone.

    As desperate as these folks were to stop Trump, one has to wonder why they just didn’t ask one or more CIs to lie about Trump campaign officials desiring access to Clinton emails via Russia. That would have provided a predicate for thorough investigation and they could then all be “proud” for their part in saving the country from Russia. Instead, they have twisted themselves into pretzels trying to cover up everything after-the-fact. As clever as they were in this conspiracy, none of them ever seem to have planned for the possibility Clinton wouldn’t win. That is the pretty much the height of arrogance. And the NeverTrumpers think there’s no basis for despising elites?

    Who was the Republican that first funded the dossier then Clinton team took over it to continue . I remember reading last year about it,but nobody outted who the Republican candidate was who originally funded it first . Was it Jeb¡? Also, President Trump made a swipe about ‘ A thousand lights’ I took it be that somebody told Trump the Bushes said or did things against him hence his swipe. His swipe at the reference seem random to others but I don’t think it is.

      No Republican funded the Dossier, ever. However Fusion GPS was contracted to find dirt on Candidate Donald Trump in the Republican Primaries but was terminated once President Trump won or obtained the Republican nomination sometime in April I think.

      It was only in May or so that Christopher Steele was employed by Fusion GPS and the Democrats along with Killary’s campaign as well as Obozzo’s foundation spent over $12,000,000.00 on the Steele Dossier.

      Paul Singer, Washington Free Beacon contracted with Fusion GPS early on but ended the contract when President Trump secured the nomination. Steele was not part of that contract. A couple of months later, DNC/HRC hired Fusion GPS who hired Christopher Steele.

      Two different contracts.

    In 1987 congress gave up thier authority to prosecute anyone that lies or is contempt towards them. That authority has been given to the DOJ. Sessions runs the DOJ. Checkmate. Nobody in deep state goes to jail. Forget about it. CTH has been told that Sessions is the ‘ silent assassin ‘ that’s a lie. How so ? When congressmen Jason Chaffetz went to Sessions and told him all he knew! And he knew a lot, he was told by sessions ‘ I have no intention of prosecuting Hillary IT aid Bryan Pagliano regarding her email scandal, I knew then the battle was over’ Do you understand that? Now you know why they can act smug and tell congress to kiss my ass. The boss has thier back and there in nothing anyone can do about it. Checkmate ,they win this one. Trump can fire sessions but Mitch has already told Trump if you do the US senate wil NOT approve a new AG. Checkmate again. Trump is in A box and deep state have plans to keep him there. Folks this is war, no time for snow flakes.
