Sunday Talks: Chairman Devin Nunes Discusses Declassification and Congressional Investigations…

Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee Devin Nunes appears with Maria Bartiromo for a wide-ranging discussion on a variety of current issues and events.  The interview begins with a discussion on China’s strategic economic objectives and continues into issues surrounding congressional investigations of the DOJ and FBI.

In the second half of the interview Chairman Nunes shares some insight from interviews, testimony and depositions from approximately 70 former administration officials and calls for the release of the transcripts.  According to Nunes 70 to 80% of all testimony is not classified.  The remaining 20% could be declassified for release by the Director of National Intelligence (DNI), Dan Coats.  The interview is in two segments:

      In his Friday show, Dan Bongino posited something I thought of long ago, that the stalling in the release of documents AND the failure of PDJT to just declassify everything might very well be because the snowing of the FISC with garbage intel is not AT ALL uncommon and if it is conclusively proven via declassified documents that in this case when it was done against an opposition party candidate and, later, the POTUS one can easily imagine that it has been done many, MANY times before against mere citizen peons.

      If that is revealed, there could be all kinds of cases begun against ACTUAL intel threats that are poisoned… not that those cases don’t DESERVE to be poisoned as would any case where there is prosecutorial malfeasance.

          A study of the French Revolution would answer many questions. Initially it was an uprising of the lower classes against their aristocratic overseers. In spite of the fact that the lot of those who revolted was the best it had ever been. Their call to action was dire economic circumstance enjoyed not just in France but all of Europe. With the success of the American Revolution as a model the French stormed the Bastille, released “political” prisoners and then cornered Louis and Marie (“Let them eat cake.”) in their estate at Versailles.

          The French government and political system, tradition and statute were, as with present day US, was fraught with inequities, bureaucratic insanity and extensive affronts to logic. Early in the French Revolution each day revealed outrageous circumstance and created change of which the lower classes hadn’t even dreamed. Each new affront found led to a new harsh revenge / preventative to insure like circumstance would never again be seen. A pro-active effort was made to discover each and every transgression. Once found, quite literally, heads rolled. The fervor continued and ultimately, in Europe where hereditary monarchs, chosen by God, ruled without question, the King and Queen were executed. The continuing execution of those out of favor, for even the slightest transgression, became the norm. Temperance and moderation were lost.

          Ultimately, the French Revolution led to the Napoleonic Wars and horrific death and destruction across Europe. The US needs to drain the swamp. Those responsible need to be held accountable for so wantonly trying to subvert our glorious nation and her institutions and traditions. Many people need to go to prison. However, the United States of America does not need our version of Madame Defarge, seated with her knitting in Times Square cheering as revenge is taken on every conspirator.

          I hope I am correct in thinking that those who currently govern have at some time studied history and the French Revolution. I hope they understand that the problem needs a more subtle solution than “kill’em all and let God sort them out.” In 1789 among the stated objectives in the document which crafted our government were “…in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense and secure the blessings of liberty…” Each incarceration, each prosecution should be measured against these five stated objectives.

    This is still a huge question: Who, really, can be trusted to be a true patriot. I define a patriot is someone willing to stake their life and their sacred honor on the U.S constitution, and the principles on which it stands: That all of our citizens will have protected their right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness– their constitutional rights.

    One group we don’t discuss is lawyers as a lot: Where do lawyers stand?. My experience and observation is that there is a complex (like the military industrial complex) that siphons off taxpayer money on legal manipulation designed to drag out the cases to maximize income and keep the deep state processes in place — for the income building potential alone. What percentage of lawyers are true patriots? I fear there are many pretending to be patriots as long as they are getting paid, but trying to slow walk the accomplishment of anything as long as money flows. So these legal processes are being prolonged, incentivized by protection of the uniparty, the deep state, the large multinational corporations, and the flow of money related to legal activity.

    I was thinking about something last night and I think I know the answer but I wanted to pick the hive brain to make sure I’m looking at it correctly.

    A FISA warrant under Title 1 seems like pretty much the biggest hammer in the surveillance arsenal, and it has been indicated that getting one is a Big Deal. And for good reason, I think. Legal authority to spy on potentially hundreds or thousands of US citizens should be granted only for very good reason.

    Much has been made of the fact that the warrant application opens with ‘Carter Page is a foreign agent’ then later contradicts that statement by stating that they suspect, etc. yet he remains uncharged to this day.

    The Court authorized this incredibly heavy handed power for a year.

    Now my question. Are we aware of ANYONE who has been indicted, charged or convicted as a result of this warrant? Did the Flynn indictment originate from this warrant or from the routine surveillance of known foreign agent? And does anyone have any idea what kind of resources were devoted to a full year of surveillance that ripples out to two hops and can go backward as well as forward?

    I feel like we’re missing the forest for the trees.

            “[…]The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) was introduced on May 18, 1977, by Senator Ted Kennedy and was signed into law by President Carter on 25 October 1978. …..
            The FISA resulted from extensive investigations by Senate Committees into the legality of domestic intelligence activities[…]. “

            Kennedy was also behind the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965 and other laws that completely changed the face of our nation. Numbers USA ***

Many other working people had similar stories of Kennedy’s nastiness when dealing with the ‘peasant class’ (Talk radio show when the flight crew story surfaced.)

        I think Carter Page is frantically trying to repair the damage.

        —- Oh and the Russians LOVE to use US journalists as assets BTW which may explain WHY Page was outed. Now Russia has reasons to exclude him from visiting or restrict him. “A 1941 internal KGB summary report broke down the occupations of Americans working for the spy agency in the prior decade. Twenty-two were journalists, a profession only out numbered by engineers (forty-nine) and dwarfing economists (four) and professors (eight).” pg 145 — Spies The Rise and Fall of the KGB in America, Haynes, Klehr, and Alexander Vassiliev. —–

        Given the growing importance of services trade to TPP Parties, the 12 countries share an interest in liberalized trade in this area….market access, which provides that no TPP country may impose quantitative restrictions on the supply of services (e.g., a limit on the number of suppliers or number of transactions) ….TPP Parties accept these obligations on a “negative-list basis,” meaning that their markets are fully open to services suppliers from TPP countries….TPP Parties agree to permit free transfer of funds related to the cross-border supply of a service. In addition, the chapter includes a professional services annex encouraging cooperative work on licensing recognition and other regulatory issues, and an annex on express delivery services.

        TEMPORARY ENTRY FOR BUSINESS PERSONS
        The Temporary Entry for Business Persons chapter encourages authorities of TPP Parties to provide information on applications for temporary entry, to ensure that application fees are reasonable, and to make decisions on applications and inform applicants of decisions as quickly as possible. TPP Parties agree to ensure that information on requirements for temporary entry are readily available to the public, including by publishing information promptly and online if possible, and providing explanatory materials. The Parties agree to ongoing cooperation on temporary entry issues such as visa processing. Almost all TPP Parties have made commitments on access for each other’s business persons, which are in country-specific annexes.

        THE TEETH!
        Unlike some other treaties the TPP has enforcement. Worse, as can be seen if you read between the lines it has ENFORCEMENT FOR OTHER TREATIES! The Groniad says this about the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade agreement:

        Leading arbitration lawyer, George Kahale (chairman of Curtis, Mallet-Provost, Colt & Mosie LLP, an international law firm) says there are critical loopholes in the Trans-Pacific Partnership’s investment chapter that leave Australia wide open:

        ….an MFN clause is tantamount to a classic wipeout move. It would enable foreign corporations from TPP states to make a claim against Australia based on the ISDS provisions in any other trade deal Australia has signed, no matter which country it was signed with. That means it does not matter how carefully the TPP is drafted: foreign investors can cherrypick another treaty Australia has signed, and sue the Australian government based on the provisions included in that treaty…..”
        http://www.theguardian.com/business/2015/nov/10/tpps-clauses-that-let-australia-be-sued-are-weapons-of-legal-destruction-says-lawyer

        ANY agreement signed by a past president would be enforceable via TPP

  11. “Not enough is talked about regarding Chinese manufacturing of US goods as it relates to NATIONAL SECURITY.”

    Navarro has discussed this extensively. There is the self-sufficiency aspect you describe well. However there is also the existential need for a nation’s industrial and manufacturing capacity to keep apace with technological advancements and innovations or else rendezvous with third-world status. The most pernicious lie ever inflicted on the US middle class was the US CofC line that America could leave the manufacturing to others while we ‘graduated’ to a service-sector economy. Suicide.

    Notice how the bits and pieces that have been DRIP DRIP DRIPPING over all this time are now coming to inescapable and undeniable conclusions….just weeks ahead of the mid-term?? How these latest text mssgs reveal the extent to which the media itself was an integral part of the “insurance policy”?

    This is no accident or coincidence.

    What is coming….quite soon…is a MOAB or 3 that the liberal media is going to be FORCED to report on. News they simply cannot ignore nor refuse to report. News that is going to completely undermine the credibility of the NYTs, WaPo, CNN, etc and stay front and center for many news cycles. News that is going to enrage the public. And it will throw the Democrats and their media lapdogs back on their heels, all right in front of the election.

        The 1st Amendment does not protect against knowingly, willfully, and intentionally subverting of the legal and lawfully elected gov’t. If effect, creating a Constitutional crisis. That is a crime against the nation and it’s citizens. Not only do the reporters who colluded with the “small cabal” now carry serious legal liabilities, so do their editors and also, possibly, their publications. And it all goes back to publishing classified information that was used with the goal of subverting the lawfully elected President and his administration. And it is all PROVABLE.

        Beyond rank partisanship, this is one reason why the NYTs and WaPo…in particular… have been going all-out in their war against PDJT. These publications literally stand to be ruined both financially and reputationally, with large numbers of their respective staff thrown into prison.

      You’re correct, Nunes has announced that he’s releasing non-classified depositions and is going to ask the DNI to declassify the remaining depositions.

      Sundance has pointed out that Nunes has not made an official request from his committee to declassify the FISA warrants and secondly, Nunes ‘hopes’ that the DNI won’t drag its feet on the declassification of the depositions his committee still holds.

      Nunes has been the strongest Trump supporter in congress and yet his official stance is still pretty weak tea. As near as I can tell, Trump is still out there on his own and whatever he does falls on his shoulders.

      Now, If Sessions were to attain his majority and resign instead of occupying his time playing chess, that would rescue both Trump and Sessions.

    I believe President Trump (along with his few allies) are in the process of playing a game of “Chicken’ right now with the Deep State regarding what & who is going to be exposed.
    The President knows everything, so that is good. In order to keep his MAGA agenda functioning he has to negotiate with the criminal political class, so that is bad.
    I think (hope) that after the midterms – win or lose – the President will start firing people. Hopefully lots of them.
    Also, Mueller & Weissman ( or someone like them ) will NEVER stop investigating the President unless some people are arrested & put on trial. Pretty sure that PDJT knows that too.
    Really looking forward to his next rally. I’m hoping he uses that venue to expose Deep State criminals.

      I really believe that this is PDJT’s game plan:

      1. Nothing can be allowed to stop the Kavanaugh appointment to the SCOTUS. Senators Grassley and McConnell have committed to scheduling the votes to have Kavanaugh on the SCOTUS for the start of their FY19 Session. So nothing else will be instigated until after 1 October.

      2. Early in October, PDJT will declassify even more documents than the House and Senate have requested; all the documents that will harm PDJT’s enemies, and ones that will help PDJT. This will be PDJT’s October Surprise.

      3. The Senate and house will quickly organize these newly unclassified documents and deliver them to the press. The MSM will ignore, but the conservative media will get out the news. Many Deep State folks will be unmasked by the Senate and House (also by Project Veritas).

      4. Indictments will follow, and there is a likelihood that the whole Mueller / Rosenstain Special Counsel (SC) conspiracy will be declared void, and every act by Mueller’s herd of angry Donkeys will be rendered “Fruit of the Poisoned Tree.” They will be rendered void / moot.

      5. The Civil Litigation by the Mueller victims against the DoJ / FBI and ICs will begin.

      PDJT delaying his declassification is part of his game plan. Sun Tzu said you need to watch and learn the habits of your enemy, to decipher his weaknesses.

      President Trump (PDJT) spent the 1st 1.5 years of his 1st term focusing on creating wins for his core constituent groups. He’s won over Blue Collar workers from the (D)s and Unions. He’s winning over Blacks and Hispanics with the economic wins: new jobs, tax cuts, regulation reform, et cetera. Focusing on getting solid accomplishments was much more important than the pesky Mueller investigation.

      In the mean time, PDJT got to discover more about his Deep State enemies behavior. Defectors and the Anonymous NYT OpEd revealed more about the DeepState enemy than they know.

      Now, in the last half of September 2018, PDJT is focused on
      1. getting his 2nd SCOTUS appointment onto the bench
      2. creating a major blow to the DeepState (Declassify the Docs!)
      3. winning big (R) majorities in the 2018 Mid-Terms.

      Now is not the time to whine about PDJT. Now is the time to bet on our counter-punching, bare-knuckled street fighter from Queens, PDJT.

      Never bet against a winner who still has a lot of “fight” left in him. Think Brady and the New England Patriots. Champions win by winning!

      I’m betting that PDJT is more intelligent and a better game player than the MSM or Donkey Party has ever seen. Go “kill ’em” Donald!

    Whoever knowingly or willfully advocates, abets, advises, or teaches the duty, necessity, desirability, or propriety of overthrowing or destroying the government of the United States or the government of any State, Territory, District or Possession thereof, or the government of any political subdivision therein, by force or violence, or by the assassination of any officer of any such government; or

    Ever think that THIS is the reason Trump and AG Sessions are moving so carefully???

    Never forget that it was UNITED STATES BANKERS that FINANCED the Bolshevik Revolution and sent Trotsky from NYC to Russia.

    William R. Russell was in Russia soon after the Bolsheviks seized power and spent considerable time there, working on Creel propaganda against the Germans, for the Bolsheviks, and later against the Bolsheviks. Russell described how he saw the communist tradecraft:

    The way they worked their way to the seizure of power was as follows: Talk about peace, talk about social equality, especially among those most oppressed. Talk about organization of labor, and penetrate into every labor union. Talk on soapboxes. Publish pamphlets and papers. Orate and harangue. Play on envy. Arouse jealousy. Separate class from class. Try to break down the democratic processes from within. Accustom the people to picketing, strikes, mass meetings. Constantly attack the leaders in every way possible so that the people will lose confidence. Then in time of national peril, during a war, on the occasion of a great disaster, or of a general strike, walk into the capital and seize the power. A well-organized minority can work wonders.

    The corruption of the FBI and DOJ continues.

    The conflicts of interest have long ago invalidated the Mueller Special Council. The President’s council should take clear and apparent misuse of the court system to the supreme court. First, seeking validation of the misuse by Mueller Special Council and second seeking validation of the corrective action.

    This would clearly follow or demonstrate the founders intentions, by placing two branches of government against a third. Naturally, the intent is to avoid further misuse of congressional powers.

    Look a the words “We need to Open the case we’ve been waiting on now while Andy (McCabe, also fired) is acting”. But, it was Rosenstein, who ended up opening the case. This means to me, that Rosenstein is a conspirator too.

    Add to this, that the DOJ and FBI personnel are not permitted to use government Lawyers. So why, is it that Page and Strzok were permitted to use government lawyers?
