President Trump Responds to Leaked FBI Claims in Recent NYT Article….

President Donald Trump tweets a response to a recent New York Times article citing the internal FBI debate about opening an investigation on him personally:

The New York Times article was based on leaks from sources who were responding to the leaks from other sources that were given to the Epoch Times.   Each side in the DOJ/FBI corruption story is currently leaking to advance their interests.

Three congressional committees have requested the release of witness transcripts.  HPSCI via Devin Nunes (September 2018); and the joint House Judiciary/Oversight committee (December 2018).  Congressional allies of President Trump (Nunes, Jordan, Meadows and Collins) are being blocked by corrupt cabinet members within the current administration.

The current DOJ (Matt Whitaker/Rod Rosenstein) and FBI (Christopher Wray/David Bowdich) are refusing to allow the release of those prior witness transcripts.  Their excuse for refusing to release is centered around protecting the Mueller investigation.

It appears the current DOJ and FBI prefer to position the new Democrat majority to conduct hearings without the public having the information from prior testimony.  That process allows a much easier political narrative to be deployed; thereby hiding the former corruption under a new wave of media attention.   The motives really are that simple.

This has been the ‘kick-the-can‘ strategy to protect the institutions all along….

DAG Rod Rosenstein was hired by President Trump at the direction of, and request of, AG Jeff Sessions. Rosenstein then recommended that President Trump hire FBI Director Chris Wray (a transparently useful idiot)….. Director Wray then hired David Bowdich as his deputy AND re-hired Dana Boente as FBI chief-legal-counsel.

The picture we get here is how the 2015/2016 officials within the corrupt DOJ and FBI enterprise, were put into higher office in the Trump administration 2017/2018; and those same officials are currently occupying positions that allow them to keep their prior corrupt activity hidden.

Seemingly frustrated by the depth of the DC corruption and influence over the DOJ and FBI, President Trump fired AG Jeff Sessions who was doing nothing to stop this insanity.  Matt Whitaker took over as acting AG but continued the AG Sessions approach.

All of those with authority within the DOJ and FBI, with specific design and willful intent of Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein, have abdicated their positions and are empowering Robert Mueller and Andrew Weissmann to control the focus of the U.S. Justice Department.

It would appear that President Trump sought the counsel of former President George W. Bush during the December funeral proceedings of his father, George H.W. Bush.  President Trump and George “Dubya” Bush met at the Blair House and again in the Oval Office while the official DC state honors were paid to the elder Bush.

The day following visits by the former president Bush, and the former first family, current President Donald Trump announced the latest AG nominee William Barr.

Mr. Barr was the AG during the Bush administration; it is not a significant leap-of-faith to see where that advice to hire Barr came from.

Donald Trump the business executive was known for his tactical ability to use negotiation judo during deals with specific adversaries; the old axiom: be careful what you wish for, you just might get it” pertains here.  We’ve seen him do this numerous times.  This approach is most often deployed when you know you are negotiating with liars; and you intentionally give the liar the path toward their goal – knowing that approach cuts off their ability to take a direction you otherwise may not be able to identify.

In essence, perhaps President Trump knows all of these elements are aligned against him and seek his removal…. So he intentionally accepts their false words as true as a strategy to hold them accountable to the honorable intent (the lie) they falsely present; while knowing all of their effort will be to seek his removal.

How this will all eventually work out is still undetermined.

The funny thing is… Donald Trump has this uncanny, some will say divinely protected, capability to walk into an absolute shitstorm and come out completely unharmed.  [His dad noted it when Trump was younger]  So when we see Supreme Court Justice Ruther Bader Ginsburg in a very tenuous physical state, we must consider how that conflicts with the Decepticon desire to eliminate Trump; and their Decepticon need for President Trump to provide the replacement.  The timing becomes a predicament for the Decepticons that Trump can use to his advantage.

Funny how that works.

I digress.

From Pelosi’s rules, we know Elijah Cummings will deliver the schedule for impeachment hearings before his deadline on April 15th.  The next likely witness to be subpoenaed (I would predict subpoenaed by Adam Schiff), to grab the media headlines will be Donald Trump Jr.

Unfortunately, too many people, on all sides, still refuse to believe the institutions of the DOJ and FBI are comprehensively corrupted.  Too many people cling to a belief that Rosenstein and Mueller are working honorably toward the cause of justice.

Until people awaken to the reality that all elements within both institutions, past and current, are infected with the metastasized cancer of politics little will change.

William Barr is not a change agent.

The Dragon FISA was likely on Trump.

    Not just institutions and elements, but all the actual people at the DOJ and FBI are corrupt – all of them. He who lies with dogs, gets up with fleas.

    I now wish the illiterate Taliban, on the other side of the planet, less ill will than I wish FBI agents, who should all be considered moral pariahs.

      Exactly.

      As long as career bureaucrats and staffers are passed from one administration to the next, nothing should be expected to change.

      There was no reason for anyone to believe that just because Donald J. Trump became president, that would not be the case.

      During the 2016 campaign I kept waiting for some candidate – any candidate – to talk about a scorched-earth policy that would get rid of the deadwood in the bureaucracies and administrative bodies. Never heard anyone mention it.

      The worker ants are in place, protecting their pensions and their resumes. They’re not going anywhere.

      Not ALL FBI Agents are moral pariahs. 60% are good American patriots who joined the Agency in good faith expecting to serve their Country and put bad people behind bars.

      The other 40% are Peter Strok and Lisa Page. ALL of FBIHQ is populated by the Strok/Page types. Recruitment of this type of Agent started under Mueller and continued under Comey. Mueller drove out all of the old school “Brick Agents” shortly after he became Director.

      Mueller implemented an “up or out” policy where all SSAs were required to move to DC and do Headquarters time or lose their GS 14 pay grade. This policy change by Mueller purposely targeted the most senior Agents in the FBI who had finally earned the right to move their family to a medium sized office in fly over country, had teenage kids and were living a comfortable life.

      Mueller knew these Agents would not uproot their families and move to DC. Hundreds of these senior Agents immediately retired. Literally thousands of years of investigative experience left the FBI overnight.

      This is exactly what Mueller wanted. These were the men and women who would have called Mueller out when he started transforming the FBI from a criminal investigative organization into a domestic intelligence organization (it is illegal to collect intelligence on American citizens).

      Mueller immediately began filling the ranks with Strok/Page types. The FBI does extensive psychological screening of applicants. Stroke and Page are self interested, well-educated cowards whose only motivation is their own promotion and paycheck. In other words they are people who will be blindly loyal to the Agency and will obey any order no matter how un-Constitutional or unlawful. This is the psychological profile that Mueller and Comey actively recruited and hired.

      On the flip-side, combat veterans, patriots, have been denied employment by the FBI at all costs (they all mysteriously fail the polygraph and background check).

      The moral of the good Agents is at rock bottom. Everyone is retiring as soon as they are eligible. Younger Agents are leaving as soon as they can find another line of work. They are ashamed of the badge.

      It is time to abolish the FBI. Make the 56 FBI field offices the Investigative Branch of DHS. Fire everyone in the FBI and make them re-apply for their job under new standards. President Trump can remodel FBIHQ into a hotel. Or better yet, burn it to the ground and salt the earth. Hang everyone on the 7th floor for treason.

    The assault on Trump and his presidency did not arise out of legitimate national security concerns. It was born out of personal vendetta and career advancement on the part of the ruling Democrat establishment.

    No one in that establishment could conceive of a trump victory. Obama Clinton and their sycophants initiated and manufactured a counter intelligence investigation to humble and ruin Trump after his certain defeat. His failure to attain the presidency was insufficient. They laid the groundwork for him to subsequently be personally and financially destroyed.

    The instigators of these efforts were no doubt Obama, Clinton and their closest advisers in government and the campaign. The universally shared expectation of Clinton’s victory and her subsequent control of the government would ensure their success. Anticipating victory in the election the players boldly fabricated Russia – Russia – Russia. Obama/Clinton to destroy Trump was and their sycophants to advance their careers after the Clinton investiture.

    FISA warrants, NSA unmasking, Carter Page and Papadakolis ensnarements, Fusion GPS, Nellie and Bruce Ohr, the fictional Dossier, Brennan, Clapper, Mueller and 17 angry Democrat prosecutors with neither limit nor scruples. That Trump has survived and continues to advance against this continuing onslaught and the tepid support or outright hostility of his own party is a monumental achievement of mythic proportions.

    The Republic is in play.

    POTUS is focussed on 2020, the economy and the border/immigration. These will influence the outcome. He does not want to be stuck in the deep state morass, the cleanup of which must start with the way FBI/DOJ/CIA etc.operate; and hire, train and promote. Or to put it another way, you peel off Comey, you get Wray. You peel off Wray you will get a replica of McCabe. Its like those Russian dolls, one inside the other. In this sense, it is like our educational system in that it first must be recast, then new students make their way thru and emerge as good citizens instead of indoctrinated sheep. It cannot de fixed by getting rid of people. So, as much as I detest the deep staters, I believe a lot of what we see is an effort to drag POTUS into single-handedly trying to fight a small army of corrupt bureaucrats. At this point, it is to his disadvantage, and best to wait until he has backup.

    I assume one side is leaking that the FBI/NSC/DOJ suspected that Candidate Trump was collaborating with foreign enemies as a Russian Agent and this justifies the counter intelligence investigation that was initiated. This side claims their facts support their actions.

    The other side is leaking that the Clinton campaign/Fusion GPS/DOJ/FBI/DNC fabricated these stories out of whole cloth as an “insurance policy” to derail a candidate, President-Elect and a President. This side claims their facts support their actions.

    So even as both sides leak, the difference is one side is releasing more volume, with more frequency and is attempting to influence more of the general population with their media flood.

    Therefore, even as VSGPDJT tweets and Rudy threatens to release a counter report–post Mueller; Mueller blocks access to the critical documents and witnesses that the other side could reveal.

    Am I one of the few deplorables that believes that VSGPDJT knows this? He also knows he is NOT guilty of any charges and remains patient to primarily tweet–without demanding that everything be released–because he does not believe the other side is influencing and corrupting enough people in the middle…

    If that assumption is accurate, I don’t understand WHY he believes this.

    It’s true that at each extreme end of the curve, 10% adamantly believe one side; 10% adamantly believe the other side and the 80% in the middle comprise those that need to be influenced to move to one end or the other.

    Unfortunately, the longer the saga prolongs, the 80% of R, D and most importantly I (independent) voting population may fall away or even move to the wrong end.

    Look at how many regular posters have fallen away as CTH commenters–both in the last 6 months and even in the last 2 months! Look at how many were sickened when Rudy, DiGenova, Sundance and others said the Big Ugly is coming and it never did.

    I don’t believe a Truth bombshell will be revealed and justice will prevail under AG Barr. In fact, while we all continue to pray, AG Barr’s appointment and a more concerted effort to reveal the truth at DOJ/FBI may never occur–even if Barr’s appointment helps VSGPDJT have a clearer picture of who the real enemies are.

    Beyond losing the 2018 House elections, we may yet lose more election battles but… we should never give up and always support VSGPDJT! MAGA.

      You mentioned the Big Ugly .. yeah .. now that we’re in the New Year, and board pieces have moved .. I can better see what/how things may be happening, by watching President Trump.
      And I can see now. This is going to be a slow burn,
      The more we learn of all the Injustice, the more we wish Justice to be served. “Patience” was never one of my strong suits, and .. “waiting” for this prevailing of the Justice has been challenging, Part of me had been hoping for some fireworks when the New Year hit, and .. I can see now, my expectations are going to have to be relaxed. There are a lot of moving parts to this thing, and for this to be done right, it’s going to take a “minute”.

      In addition to being Apex Predator and Change Agent, Trump is also a Builder. He has SUCCESSFULLY built in the most challenging, hostile builder environment on the planet — New York City. And as President, he is in position to re-build the compromised foundations of our country. To “Drain the Swamp.”

      Now that I’ve taken a step back, I can see this is no “hose it down with a garden hose, it’ll be right-as-rain in a couple weeks” kind of thing.

      President Trump has vision. President Trump doesn’t want to just win, He wants to WIN. For all of us. Even with all we know, it is Bigger than you think it is. It is Bigger than I think it is. -Trillions- are at stake.

      Big pieces are at play, glimpsed from a newer zoomed-out high-altitude view. But — now, from this view, I can see more board development needs to occur before these pieces are moved. Some things I might have been hoping might happen next week, may not happen for months. Some might need a year.

      Oh, we’ll see the capital-letter Justice that needs to happen, but .. it’s not going to be instant-gratification. Many moving parts, there’s a lot going on. We will need to be patient — it’s going to be a slow burn.

      “Sorry to keep you waiting folks, complicated business..”

      I will end my post with several Sun Tzu [Art of War] quotes – (noting that Trump is no stranger to Sun Tzu):

      ◆ “Victorious warriors win first and then go to war, while defeated warriors go to war first and then seek to win.”

      ◆ “Let your plans be dark and as impenetrable as night, and when you move, fall like a thunderbolt.”

      and lastly, these two gems:

      ◆ “In the midst of chaos, there is also opportunity.”

      ◆ “Victory comes from finding opportunities in problems.”

    William Barr is Sessions 2.0.

    BUT, there is a chance he will keep Session’s strong stance against drugs and crime while not being recused from Clinton crimes. Deep state crimes, I’m not so sure. We finally get rid of GHWB and now his AG is back.

    From Vox which is a highly liberal rag, regarding their fear of Barr:

    https://www.vox (dot) com/policy-and-politics/2018/12/7/18129487/william-barr-trump-attorney-general-criminal-justice-reform

    As deputy attorney general from 1990 to 1991 and attorney general from 1991 to 1993, Barr pushed for and helped implement more punitive criminal justice policies, including a 1990 crime law that, among other things, escalated the war on drugs.

    In 1992, Barr signed off on a book by the Department of Justice titled The Case for More Incarceration. In a letter of support, Barr argued that “there is no better way to reduce crime than to identify, target, and incapacitate those hardened criminals who commit staggering numbers of violent crimes whenever they are on the streets.” He also called on the country to build more jails and prisons. (Although he specified violent criminals, the federal system, unlike the much larger state systems, locks up mostly drug offenders.)

    In 1992, asked about racial disparities in prisons by Los Angeles Times reporter Ronald Ostrow, Barr argued that “our system is fair and does not treat people differently.” He went on to defend laws that made prison sentences for crack cocaine much harsher than prison sentences for powder cocaine. The disparity between the two was reduced by the Fair Sentencing Act of 2010, in part because there’s little justification for it based on the drugs’ effects, but the higher sentence for crack has a disproportionate racial impact since crack was more commonly used in black communities and powder cocaine was more commonly used in white communities.

    In 1994, Barr co-chaired a commission for Virginia’s governor that released a plan to abolish parole (which allows certain inmates to go free before the completion of their sentences) in the state, increase prison sentences, and build more prisons.

    Barr also once said that it was “simply a myth” that there were “sympathetic people” and “hapless victims of the criminal justice system” in prisons, according to David Krajicek at Salon.
    It’s possible that Barr’s views have evolved since then, just as many people’s views have toward the drug war and mass incarceration, particularly as crime has plummeted in the past two decades.

    Earlier today I wrote elsewhere that people who want President Trump to order the FBI/DOJ/CIA/NSA bureaucrats or higher officials to release Documents X, Y, or Z or to publish classified subpoenas or whatever do not realize the contradiction involved! Does anyone believe that such people will willingly turn over documents – if they exist – exposing an attempt at a coup d’etat,..before they can either destroy them or alter them?

    Such people may be arrogant and therefore get sloppy, but they will not be quite that dumb about their own interests.

    The most we can hope for is for someone inside these agencies to grow or find their conscience and dare to expose evidence of the coup d’etat attempt. We can talk about the traitors in our midst and say that Document X or Bureaucrat Y’s testimony proves whatever, but this will not be comprehensible to the electorate, 40% or more of whom will not believe it under any circumstances, and another large percentage who will not be able to understand it.

    The president himself could reveal the evidence, and that hardcore left-wing percentage will scream LIAR, and the MSM will join them, and we will demand the status quo change and the bureaucracy will shrug. The president could fire thousands in the bureaucracy, order a mass termination of contracts, and a leftist judge somewhere would block such orders, the Left would scream “Dictatorship!” “End of Democracy!” and I fear a majority would believe it, instead of viewing it in fact as a Restoration of their basic rights and freedom!

    So I am not particularly hopeful, but will nevertheless hope that somehow President Trump succeeds in surviving and reining in the government eventually.

      Ausonius,

      I recall the correspondents dinner, where O@sshole was making fun of PDJT from the podium….. at the time, PDJT had spent decades among those same people, attending their events, their parties, their weddings, their funerals, doing deals all along the way. He was, in effect, one of them……… except that he wasn’t.

      He saw what was going on – probably, given his wealth, he was no doubt confided in by many of these people when they had too much to drink, or needed a few dollars to start who knows what.

      He watched O@sshole hand a trillion a year to these people as a part of those useless continuing resolutions for the entirety of O’s time in office.

      But PDJT was different – he wasn’t one of them. He was among them, but he was separate. He saw what was going on, and saw where it was leading. He wanted a future for his family, just as we do, except he was in a position to do something about it.

      The time came, and there was the moment on the escalator. And now we are here.

      It seems hopeless at times, as we become more and more aware of just how pervasive the swamp has infected DC. Imagine how it must be for him, knowing more than probably all of us as he made his decision to run.

      The Swamp, though deep, MUST maintain access to those trillions to remain in power. This is where Main Street vs Wall Street comes into play. It is here that the telling battles will be fought… and we have the numbers… we are millions.

      Main Street is climbing off the deck, dusting itself off, and taking the fight to Wall Street. The more we remain in the game, and the more PDJT returns power to us, the weaker these minions of the Swamp will get.

      I believe that President Trump will prevail, because he actually fights, unlike so many of our so-called champions of the past. I believe that President Trump will prevail, because Main Street sees what he is doing, and supports him. I believe that President Trump will prevail, because we millions are on our knees before God, confessing our sin and praying for deliverance from the evil that has infected our ruling class.

      But suppose I am wrong, and the Deep State “gets” PDJT. What then? Well, I hope that doesn’t happen, but if it does, it will result in millions of us becoming ungovernable. This will be a shock to The Left, because historically we have always behaved.

      We have the numbers, we have the means (2A), and we love neighbors, friends, family, and this Land too much to roll over and become cattle to be milked and butchered by an elite few who would use us without remorse if they could.

      It will make this present state of affairs look pleasant by comparison. It will be UGLY. But in the end, either way, we will prevail.

      Be ready.

    I bring this up to remind the readers what is really important to the regular American. He’s not interested in the stuff we read on CTH every day. Trump knows this and his priorities reflect his actions. He knows he can’t “get” the corrupt deep state criminals so he plays along. Meanwhile he’s negotiating better trade deals with China, India, Japan, Mexico, Canada and the EU. That is what is truly important in the long run. That will Make America Great Again, along with securing the border.

    I conclude that the battle with the corrupt deep state cronies may end up being a tie but the war he’s waging and winning is the economy…stupid!

    Warning to the DeepState demons from firebrand Trump supporter AlexJones.

    “We are never going to surrender. We are never going to back down and give up. In fact we are going to get stronger and we are stronger than ever. We have forced you out into open censorship and open threats against us;and the American People that you misjudged and thought were a bunch of glad handing and back slapping cowards like you … are not. We have a massive contingent; at least 20% of the country that’s hardcore ready. So, just because you demoralized a lot of the public, those people don’t count. They put themselves on the sidelines because of your poison.
    Understand the only way for you to come out of this without destroying yourselves politically, culturally, and financially is to face the facts and realize that even your top captains like Brennan & Clapper and others have shut their mouths. They’re trying to back off now. Most of the elites are leaving the US and digging in because they know what they have done and they know that there is no way to ever reverse the peoples’ awakening. So, our nation is under siege from without and from within; but all over the world nation states are coming back from the dead and that’s good news.
    The fact that the DeepState coup has been caught running illegal operations, lying to Congress, and trying to stage a coup against the President shows that two years and several months into the Trump Presidency he’s embattled, he’s bloodied, but he has never been stronger.”

        This is the history Alex Jones does not want anyone to remember. All through 2017, and part of 2018, Jones repeated the claims by Pieczenik that there was a counter-coup that put the “Cabal” under control. Trump-Russia-Wikileaks did not disturb Mr. Jones through 2017 as, according to Pieczenik, “The Cabal” had been defeated. There are more videos about this that tell the entire story. Over one year of work against Russiagate was lost because of this.

      In the end, President Trump caught on, and saw Sessions as a.) a disappointment, and b.) a liability. The Trump/Sessions arrangement was strained to say the least… well for the bulk of the approximately two years Sessions was in place.

      President Trump is a smart man. He’s fighting an uphill battle, for sure, but Sundance is spot on with this sentiment:

      “Donald Trump has this uncanny, some will say divinely protected, capability to walk into an absolute shitstorm and come out completely unharmed.”

    Also notice that in Trump’s tweet string he makes NO THREAT OF DECLASSIFICATION.

That their ‘Insurance’ is his insurance for his and his family’s safety? Maybe by waiting in the White House for the Dem’s to return from a well deserved vacation after their full 2019 schedule of legislative work, maybe Trump is avoiding another assassination attempt? Maybe letting the Dems win the house, keeping the Senate buys him the role of the embattled hero on the run up to the 2020 elections? More dark before dawn hero drama?

The actions of DOJ/FBI leadership in 2017 alone is entirely transparent. And all along POTUS has had the inside scoop from his handful of allies… Nunes, Meadows, et al. Plus access to the classified information.

    But the biggest asset he has is the guy sitting next to him: Rudy Giuliani. I believe Rudy is a faithful ally, not only driven by his personal relationship with the President, but his underlying disgust of the corruption so transparently obvious with the DOJ and FBI. Rudy took down the New York Mafia. His successors seek to unseat a President. One of these things is not like the other.

He was talking about her ties to Russia (Uranium1). She retaliated by making him a “Russian agent” colluding with Vlad. She told her she would be in jail. She is doing her damnedest to put him in jail.
    And so on.
    It will last until poor Mrs. Clinton is arrested, charged, prosecuted and sent to prison.

    Many times in the last two – three years I have thought of what Sundance says here: “The funny thing is… Donald Trump has this uncanny, some will say divinely protected, capability to walk into an absolute shitstorm and come out completely unharmed. [His dad noted it when Trump was younger] ” This is what I am reminded of in this scene many of you will no doubt remember from the movie Tombstone – anyone else amused that the word “crossfire” is part of the script? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s-5bI3FtdTs
