Sunday Talks: Senator Lindsey Graham Discusses Andrew McCabe and the Coup Plotters….

Interesting interview between Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham and CBS’s Margarget Brennan.  The primary topic is the latest revelations of Andrew McCabe and his crew of ‘soft coup’ plotters.

One of the interesting parts to this interview is the new excerpts from the 60 minutes that Brennan shows during the discussion.  [Remember, CBS is Team Obama] Senator Graham discusses his intent to call both Andrew McCabe and Rod Rosenstein to testify about the plan to eliminate President Trump.

          treason

          n. the crime of betraying one’s country, defined in Article III, section 3 of the U.S. Constitution:

          “Treason against the United States shall consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort.”

          Treason requires overt acts and includes the giving of government security secrets to other countries, even if friendly, when the information could harm American security. Treason can include revealing to an antagonistic country secrets such as the design of a bomber being built by a private company for the Defense Department.

          Treason may include “espionage” (spying for a foreign power or doing damage to the operation of the government and its agencies, particularly those involved in security) but is separate and worse than “sedition,” which involves a conspiracy to upset the operation of the government.

          • From my beloved, 4-inch thick “Webster’s Third New International Dictionary”:

            Treason: 2a: the offense of attempting by overt acts to overthrow the government of the state to which the offender owes allegiance or to kill or personally injure the sovereign or his family — SEE HIGH TREASON.

            More generally: 1: the betrayal of a trust or confidence.

            Now, back to meaning 2: b: the betrayal in early English law of a lord by his vassal.
            ——————-
            Treason is betrayal of a trust; it can be against the state, or the sovereign personally.

            What has and is still occurring are overt acts to betray our President, and perforce to betray our common desire, and trust, to have our agenda, as understood by him and promised to us, to be followed.

            It was and is treason.

            Sedition is “conduct tending to treason but without an overt act”. We are outraged — especially outraged — because we have before us a whole panoply of overt acts, of treason, aroung the central treasonous act of falsely delegitimizing and persecuting the President, and all of us he stands for, and the truth and common sense of our stands.

            The difference between those on “our side” who would call it sedition but not treason, merely highlights the common underlying problem of this time in history: The problem of “herding cats”. You are a cat that just doesn’t want to “go there” (yet? or at all), where it needs to go.

          “Treason against the United States shall consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies (foreign and domestic), giving them aid and comfort.”

          Treason gets rather broad when you take foreign countries and war out of the equation.
          The clause was intended to prohibit charging people with treason for merely not agreeing with ‘The King’. It’s effect was merely prohibiting the use of the term ‘treason’ except in the most overt cases. Call it a conspiracy to deprive the civil rights of millions of voters or ‘hackey-sack’, it could still be good for an absurd sentence of even more counts if served consecutively

      It’s actually high treason, Carson.

      We are actually to the point where even liars will occasionally tell the truth….turning against other lying liars. So, there will be a small amount of truth telling by liar McCabe.
      Also keep in mind that McCabe has written a book……BUT, there will be some occasional truth-telling in the midst of lies. Maybe McCabe and Rosenstein can share a cell in Gitmo.

      This is the perfect time, where the Lindsey, who was a former JAG Prosecutor, can show his good side, and his skills as the Chairman of the Judiciary Committee. We saw a bit of it during the Kavanaugh Hearing……I hope Lindsey focuses on this like a laser beam.

  3. This may have been discussed on another thread; I’m just now dipping into CTH as I’ve been busy with other things this weekend.

    Reading the news that there were reportedly two cabinet officials ready to pursue 25th Amendment removal of POTUS is shocking still–but not totally unexpected.

    I’m assuming Tillerson was one of the two. Who is the other? Looking at the list of cabinet secretaries and timing of their removal, my spidey sense makes me suspicious of Shulkin. Sessions probably not, esp. as he was target of other investigations (but I could be wrong). Kelly, no, he was made chief of staff. I can’t imagine POTUS retaining him once he learned of this. (Timing of when he learned, I think, is Feb-Mar 2018).

    While I don’t trust Chao, can’t imagine that he would retain her if she had been part of the plot; even though she is wife of the Turtle.

    Interested in other treepers thoughts..

Graham is a career swamp rat who has decided to play the long game and put on a nice face towards POTUS ever since his mentor John McCain went to hell to bore Satan with his POW stories. Why would Graham play nice? How about “keep your friends close and your enemies closer” – much easier to stick the knife in when no one is looking.

Of course at some point Graham has to be put on notice that his hero Johnny MAVERICK was involved in delivering the “PEE PAPERS” to the DoJ and was 100% in the tank for the fake Russia nonsense and any chance to GET TRUMP.

        I think Graham is all for MAGA if his pocketbook becomes Greater. The trick then, and I’m sure VSGPDJT is well aware of this is to get enough Senators’ pocketbooks to align with whatever MAGA business needs to be done at the time.

        I honestly don’t believe that there is a single Senator that holds the interests of his/her State or the American people ahead of their personal interests.

        All it would take is for one – just one – Senator to allow recess appointments and that would prove me wrong. So far… I haven’t been proven wrong.

      IMO that’s dead on. There are any number of other important issues we could and should be tackling, many of which I’ve no doubt I would disagree deeply with many on this website… but right now, if you are of good conscience, you have to stabilize the democracy before we open the debate on any of it.

      I’d say Graham is a mixed bag. He’s been very bad in the past but even now is a mixed bag at best. Now with McCuck gone he’s trying to salvage his career but he’ll follow the uniparty if a less suitable 2024 candidate is chosen.
      At this point I’m somewhat skeptical of Graham but don’t treat him with the same level of disdain that I have of his mentor McCuck and his past self.
      But for anyone to say he’d be a good 2024 candidate must be insane.
      Why would we ever go with someone so associated with the swamp for president after Trump. In addition far better choices such as Ron Desantis , Rand Paul , Matt Gaetz are out there. With Desantis being one of the most popular Governors of Florida right now and his strong dedication to MAGA. Why go backwards with graham instead of forward with options such as Desantis, Paul, Gaetz.

    Worried his texting over the years with Roger Stone gave Mueller/Weissmann a pretext to interview him, then intimidate him into silence through prosecutorial overreach/misconduct. “We urge you not to discuss the investigation on air in any way, or we will charge you with obstruction.” Or perhaps produce a sealed order from Obama judge Berman (also a Clinton donor).

    She actually issued an order preventing Roger Stone from declaring his innocence, because she feared potential jurors might believe him! WTF has happened to this country where declaring your innocence is now a crime?!?!

      A very good question.

      A further question to ask is “Who was responsible for continued inappropriate access that caused even access for all other federal agencies to 702 searches to be shut down in October 2016?” Was it Bruce Ohr?

      And given this timeline:
      – December 2015: Nellie Ohr working for FBI contractor Fusion GPS looking at Trump people’s overseas travel looking for contact with “suspicious persons”.
      – December 2015: Strzok/Page discussing authorisation of OCONUS [lures]
      – December 2015: Admiral Rogers discovering FBI abuse of the NSA database.
      – April 2016: Admiral Rogers shuts down contractor access to the database.
      – April 2016: Mary Jacoby (wife of Glen Simpson from Fusion GPS) visits the Whitehouse the day after contractor ban.
      – April 2016: Strzok/Page texting about “Patriot act” [ref. NSA database] approach to their activities being blocked.
      – October 2016: Admiral Rogers calls emergency meeting of FISC and gets all 702 searches of NSA database shut down for all other federal agencies.
      – October 2016: James Clapper and aligned agency heads call for Admiral Rogers to be sacked.
      – November 2016: Admiral Mike Rogers breaks chain of command and visits Trump Tower before the inauguration.
      – November 2016: Trump evacuates the transition team from Trump Tower.
      – November 2016: James Clapper and aligned agency heads again call for Admiral Rogers to be sacked. Clapper also tenders his resignation the day after Rogers visits Trump.

      Given all these events occurred before Mueller’s appointment and were public knowledge, the next question is: “Why did Mueller ignore Admiral Rogers’ offer to testify under oath?”

The Virginian Democrat party said, who is she??? We have better candidates to run against the incumbent, but MaAucliffe said no, we’re running her.

        CBS glossed over that after McCabe was promoted out of the field office to DC FBI, he did run the Clinton investigation, refused to recuse himself until November 1, 2016, and just 2 days before she’s exonerated again over the Weiner laptop, which he sat on for 30 days until the NYPD and NYSD said to George Tosca, why no action??? And one of the stories he leaked was to improve the public’s perception of his interaction with the Clinton investigation.

        Yes, CBS had a story to present, scripted, and McCabe, I believe, put out some more lies tonight to make Pres. Trump appear nutty in support of the Amendment 25 coup.

        My recommendation to Pres. Trump is to tweet the online location of the IG Report, and the criminal referral.

      Yes, this is the new narrative they are trying to push. They’ll add some fluff about “pressure of the election cycle”, “lack of oversight”, “procedures weren’t properly followed”, “mistakes were made” and given Strzok and Page, they’ll probably add “a small number of persons also acted inappropriately due to political biases”.

      The whole “Russian collusion” narrative is in full collapse. For the co-conspirators, they need to explain away how the apparatus of state was abused to spy on Trump and how the “Russian collusion” narrative ever got started. They are being very cunning, using Sara Carter, John Solomon, Epoch Times and Daily caller. However their efforts to reframe their narrative and shield the guilty will fail.

      The reason is they keep pushing the “late July 2016” start date, and that won’t work. The evidence in the public domain clearly indicates that “Operation Get Trump” was well underway in December 2015.

Maybe Graham can turn some screws. Graham seems especially focused on coup attempt and the FISA abuse, two of our biggest topics.

    This interview with Tony Shaffer and the Epoch Times from yesterday is Terrific.

    Tony absolutely nukes the FBI and the bogus investigation but maybe the best point Tony makes is that in order for the FBI to have investigated then Candidate Trump there had to be a waiver signed off by someone in NSC to approve this otherwise they had to notify him as an American citizen and he names that person as Susan Rice, who as we know reported directly to Obama.

    IMO this interview is the most powerful for Barr to hear as it screams that crimes were committed and investigations are in order of these FBI agents as no one including the FBI is above the law.

    Additionally it is the first time I have seen where there is a clear trail of dots (I.e. the documented waiver) that could lead everything back Obama possibly.

    I hope Sundance has seen this and will do a thread on it alone.

    I will be alerting Bongino as he too needs to do a podcast on it.

        The Rice waiver contention is interesting.

        I liked her TV interview line, “I didn’t leak nothing to nobody.” As the child not of the ghetto, but of two highly educated professionals (father Cornell prof and Fed Reserve governor, mother Radcliffe alumna, Phi Beta Kappa), and Susan herself Valedictorian at the National Cathedral School (sister school to St. Albans for boys), a high-honors Stanford grad (PBK) AND Rhodes Scholar and Oxford doctoral degree earner (M. Phil, D. Phil),

        I’m guessing that Ms. Rice knew very well that this double-negative was the grammatical equivalent of: “I did leak something to somebody.”

        A clever way of telling the truth while inducing most people into “hearing” the statement as a denial of leaking. She was black, you know. They talk like that. 😉

        What is disappointing about Col. Shaffer’s interview is his failure to mention (realize?) that the genesis of the FISA-warrant corruption was the need to conceal private contractors’ (incl. Fusion GPS?) snooping through the NSA database in winter and spring of 2016, and getting caught by Admiral Rogers.

        Sundance revealed this many moons ago. A few others have picked up on this, but most reporting ignores it, which casts an appearance that the FBI had good-faith reasons to surveil Team Trump, when in actuality they were merely trying to cover their and their private contractors’ illegal-spying tracks.

          The genesis of the FISA warrant corruption is indeed an important point. The spying on Trump had been discovered by Admiral Rogers in December 2015, and he shuts down contractor access to the database in April 2016.

          The frantic efforts to obtain a FISA warrant against someone, anyone, in the Trump campaign in late July 2016, tells us when the spying really started. Under the FISA, spying can continue for 12 months without warrant, and if no warrant is forthcoming, all collected surveillance must be destroyed. But on 19 July 2016, Trump wins the republican nomination. This changes everything. Suddenly their efforts to bring down just a Republican candidate will be viewed as an attempt to bring down the final Republican nominee for 2016.

          If Trump hadn’t won the Republican nomination, few would have cared about the abuse of the NSA database, or the attempt to entrap his campaign with OCONUS lures. But now it’s Trump vs Hillary. Suddenly the co-conspirators need retrospective justification for their anti-Trump operations. They know Admiral Rogers knows some of what they have been up to, and if they want any hope of ending Trump or hamstringing him if he wins despite their efforts, they need that surveillance product preserved after the 12 month date.

          Their first attempt to get a FISA warrant fails. They probably tried for Papadopolous, but sending four foreign lures against him had failed and they lost $10,000 in isotope marked cash in the process.

          What about Carter Page? He’s a spook wanabe. He’ll play along. He’s travelled to Russia. We’ll just not mention to the FISC judge that he was still a paid FBI external helping in a prominent case against Russian agents in 2016. Add a little judge shopping at a cocktail party with Contreras and bingo! The co-conspirators have their CYA warrant.

          18 April 2016 is when the co-conspirators should have given up and thrown Fusion GPS under the bus. But the fools played on …

      Bogey, Tony Shaffer was on Fox Business in an interview declaring his thought that this all began (lawless government conduct) in the late Clinton administration. Before Bill left office his admin installed people in government to assure policy success for their future plans. This was a remarkable interview. Tony’s analysis bears true so far at least in my opinion.
      The bad news is – not long after that Fox News broke all contacts with Tony.
      Complete disrespect shown by Fox both to Tony and to an American audience craving more of the truth.

      OK treepers, this is a “Must Watch” interview. Tony Shaffer clearly knows what went on. He is also on the Trump 2020 campaign.

      Shaffer can seamlessly use the words “Diminution” and “Swamp” in a single sentence. He is not a “High functioning Aspy”, he is an “Ultra high functioning Aspy”. To many watching the video, he will appear gregarious and engaging. But to an Aspy like me, the “tells” are there. The facial expressions and hand gestures are practised routines. This guy is running a ultra high speed left brain program to simulate the appearance of right brain “emotional intelligence”.

      The above comment is not a criticism. Quite the reverse. This guy is above surrendering his own analysis to that of the tribe. He is pure.

      You can trust Shaffer. He’ll never be a “Sure there was wrongdoing, but we must preserve the institutions” guy.

    This is all about AG Barr coming in. The DOJ is poised to shake off at least some of the stench of the Holder/Lynch/Rosenstein/Mueller-hold on the institution. We do not yet know which way Barr will jump, but it looks promising. “We’ll see”. I think the prospect has already helped clarify Sen. Burr’s thinking, for example.

    I don’t expect AG Barr to be President Trump’s attack dog. Nor do I expect to see Hussein hauled off in cuffs, although that would be appropriate. But I do expect the Attorney General to stand up for the Rule of Law for a change. It cannot be swept under the rug any longer. This is much bigger than Trump. Someday, he will be gone and we’re either we’re going to be a country where the CIA and the FBI rig our elections for Democrats and overthrow our presidents or we’re not.

    If we are, all bets are off.

I don’t how it came to be or how long it will last given the past, but it’s fortunate that he’s on P Trump’s side now and not just because he’s Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee. His support hasn’t slowed down since his impassioned and effective rant on behalf of now Justice Kavanaugh.

    A small contingent of American soldiers providing their expertise and other support if necessary to the troops of allied Euro countries in Syria “might” be a reasonable option to total withdrawal as long as U.S. troops are no longer the tip of the spear on all or any missions. They have sacrificed too much already while other countries in close proximity did too little.
