Corruption Junction – Desperation Amid Democrat Members of The Intelligence “Gang of Eight”…

I’ve probably reviewed thousands of congressional letters, and intelligence committee letters from oversight, along with even more executive agency responses.  In fact, CTH has shared hundreds of outlines covering granular details within many of the internal memos and correspondences.  However, I have never seen anything like this before.

The combination of arrogance, hubris and desperation within a letter (pdf here) from the four Democrats on the intelligence oversight Gang of Eight, is palpable even in text format.

Legislative branch members: Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Adam Schiff and Mark Warner write a letter today to Director  of National Intelligence Dan Coats, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, and FBI Director Christopher Wray, demanding the executive branch cabinet members withhold information from the White House.

Perhaps more stunningly, and extra-constitutionally (meaning outside the framework of constitutional separation of power), within the jaw-dropping letter the four Democrats outline previous verbal conversations and current agreements with Coats, Rosenstein and Wray where the Cabinet officers agreed to keep information away from the White House Chief Executive, the President.

That third paragraph is particularly interesting: …”the verbal assurance you provided us that DOJ and FBI would not provide the White House“…


Why would the Trump DOJ and FBI be giving Pelosi Inc. “assurances” of their intent to withhold intelligence from the White House (Office of the President).

Why would Rosenstein and Wray be giving “assurances”? I digress.

The letter continues on page 2:

This letter reeks of corruption, manipulative intent, and between-the-lines admissions of gross intelligence abuses.  Additionally, the appearance of a visible alignment between corrupt executive branch officials (Wray, Rosenstein, possibly Coats) and corrupt intelligence oversight officials (Schiff, Warner, Pelosi, Schumer) is jaw-droppingly obvious.

This corrupt and self-interested alignment has always belayed our optimism that President Trump had a cabinet willing to confront institutional corruption.  Our concern has always been that these aligned officials will fight against President Trump’s sunlight requests.

Likely DNI Dan Coats will release the declassified FISA portions as requested; thankfully the FISC (Judicial Branch) supports the executive branch in this approach.

However, we should probably temper optimism -at least in timing- surrounding the emails and text messages from Ohr, Comey, Page, Strzok and McCabe.  Those bogus “declassified” releases are more dependent on the corrupt DOJ (Rosenstein) and FBI (Wray).

“Assurances”!  F-YOU swamp, and your corrupt “assurances”.

The swamp is very deep.

      What you say, Lefty, is right. This letter confirms for me that this corruption we have been witness to for lo these many months goes deeper, than what has been focused on for all these months. If one could wave a magic wand and expose all the corrupion that is happening, it would include members of congress, possibly the judiciary, and obviously the executive branch (PRE-TRUMP) with all of these people intertwined with money and influence from domestic and foreign sources. Case in point! the involvement of many of these actors with the multiple criminal activities of the Clinton Crime Mafia, the utter corruption of the Obama administration, the selling of the Congress to the globalist mercantile class to name a few. I agree with Trump that if he can flush out is corruption it will be one of the major accomplishments of his presidency!

Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.

    This is some scary stuff.

    1. This isn’t over yet. Trump hasn’t “won.” Nothing’s been declassified yet per his order. If/when anything is declassified, we’ll be asked to believe “that’s all of it.” I, for one, have no confidence that they intend to turn over everything.
    2. Four of our top Congress people feel so brazen that they don’t mind admitting to secret verbal agreements with top executive branch bureaucrats to hide documents and information from the public, and they are encouraging these unelected officials to ignore an order from their boss, who we elected. That’s effing astounding and is a sad testament to where we are today. Things are in much worse shape than I believed.
    3. This is just what we know about. Pelosi, Schumer, et al, knew that we would see this letter. They knew well in advance that we would quickly discern that they’ve got verbal agreements with Wray, Rosenstein, Coats, and probably others. They don’t care that we or anyone else knows — not a judge who might review whether to release documents, not other congress people, not Trump, not anyone. They know things we don’t and, whatever that is, they are comfortable with us knowing that they’ve been conspiring with the administrative state.

    This last bit should give everyone pause.

        He, like all those others who have have curses rained down upon their heads is a son of Adam, made by God. Made in His image. Gifted for a destiny that began as a dream in the heart of God.

        As we fulfill our responsibility to pray for those in authority, we may feel anger, disgust, even hatred on our way to finding God’s heart for these servants of the people. Yet let not cursing be our role. We are told in scripture that even an archangel did not revile the most wicked one when contending over the body of Moses but said, “The LORD rebuke you.”

    Having commented here for a year or so, I hesitate to write this, but context matters. Remember that Nunes was the driving force behind the meetings this summer with RR, Wray, and even Coats. Nunes was fighting to get information to the several relevant House Committees regarding the Page warrant applications and the use of plants and informants prior to the FBI’s stated start date of its investigation. Coats, and even Wray and RR giving verbal assurances that they would not make public the classified portions of the materials requested by congress is what probably happened. That is not the same thing as working with the Ds on the Gof8 to secret information from the President. The recent declassification Order from the President is a different directive to Coats, RR, and Wray. I’m not saying Coats, RR, and Wray are all choir boys, but the collective feeling that they have been involved in a ploy of some sort may be a bit premature/ What’s more, I don’t see Nunes going along with any such ploy, and he attended all of the meetings at issue. It seems more likely this is a case of Schiff misstating what happened in the previous meetings by cherry picking language from previous letters the D4 group sent to misleadingly memorialize the summer meetings.

    I’ve been saying all day that the response from RR and Wray as to the Order to make the texts public will tell us most of what we want to know as to which side they are on. Hitting post comment now and preparing for tirades.

        The verbal assurances were given in June, if they were given at all. Those assurances would have applied to information DOJ maintained was classified and would not have been improper as to properly classified information. Nunes has acknowledged as much. I’m not saying those classification decisions and redactions weren’t improper, which is what Nunes has said as is the ostensible reason for the appointment of Lausch. However, Schiff and friends asserting/demanding continued classification in a September letter a few days after an Executive Order is issued is another matter. I know what you want to believe, but if there is a nefarious agreement of some type, then they would not have sent a public letter about it. Rather, the D4 group is trying to use the letter to create a justification for DOJ staff to continue the foot dragging and to bolster there claims of obstruction/abuse of power. Those assertions are bogus, but nothing in the letter suggests there was an agreement to withhold any information in contravention of an Executive Order. The D4 group would love for Wray and RR to ignore the Executive Order, but if that had been the agreement, Nunes would have raised bloody hell for the past two months.

  27. Dave says:

    Since the POTUS’s authority is absolute over the executive branch, VSGDJT has plenary authority to declassify anything he wants. THEREFORE, the moment he ordered the declassification and public release of the documents, those documents are immediately declassified…by definition. So, the good guys in Congress…Jordan, Meadows, etc can talk about the specifics in those documents, that we all know that they have, and not be in legal jeopardy. They have seen the unredacted texts and FISA apps.

    These things are now declassified. Everything that is going on is a show for the public. The treason party is showing themselves for what they are and Trump is letting them hang themselves.

    There is currently no reason that the formerly classified docs cannot be talked about publicly know. It matters not what Rosenstein et al do.

    If this letter is not an admission to 18 U.S. Code § 2384 – Seditious conspiracy; 18 U.S. Code § 2385 – Advocating overthrow of Government (2nd paragraph); 18 U.S. Code § 595 – Interference by administrative employees of Federal, State, or Territorial Governments; and 18 U.S. Code § 242 – Deprivation of rights under color of law; then it is time to use our final “box” to protect our country.

    Not that dissimilar to John Kerry admitting to “privately negotiating with a foreign power contrary to current National Foreign Policy objectives”, and even though I am just now being able to re-connect to the “outside world”, I have not heard much “media” uproar over that.

    Anyway, my meager thoughts on the OP above.

    President Trump and the White House should not be given access to any sensitive law enforcement or national security information related to an ongoing federal investigation examining conduct by the President, his campaign, or his associates.

    As this quote from the letter demonstrates, there is extreme concern that the President not see any information related to the Mueller Russia probe, all for the sake of the probe’s ostensible integrity. Perhaps this sudden concern for the integrity of the probe belies it’s true, original intent. Perhaps it was not primarily a means of finding Russian dirt on Trump for the purpose of impeachment, but rather was primarily nothing more than a legal maneuver intended simply to keep Trump from viewing evidence of the crimes committed against him until he could be impeached at the midterm after a blue wave. After all, Trump has admitted to not having seen at least the documents he just ordered declassified. It would further explain Mueller’s complete lack of production to this point in time. Maybe “production” was never the intent of the probe.
