Tom Fitton Discusses Judicial Watch FOIA Discovery and Bruce Ohr Transcript…

On Thursday of last week Judicial Watch received a 300+ page release of Bruce and Nellie Ohr communication with government officials as the result of their 2017 FOIA submission. The following day, Friday, representative Doug Collins released the transcript of Bruce Ohr testifying about his activity and contacts with DOJ and FBI officials.

Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton appears with Maria Bartiromo to discuss the revelations within both the testimony and FOIA release, saying Bruce Ohr’s testimony confirms how closely the Department of Justice and FBI were working with Clinton operative, Christopher Steele.

    Well what do you say or comment on regarding this interview. For Tree House members the circus goes on. Maybe and just maybe when the Mueller investigation is finished we will see some push back from the President and the Attorney General. But I doubt it. Trump will be lucky to survive impeachment if McConnel deems it so.

        One thing I loved about Elaine Chao. She stood up to those Leftist bullies when they accosted her husband in the restaurant and in the street. Whatever her politics, Elaine Chao apparently has the guts so many of these DC politicos lack.

            I’ve had the Same observation. Not sure she had any significant projects as part of PDJT’s MAGA Agenda.
            AMTRAK is long overdue for major structural improvement.
            The recent Southwest fleet wide aircraft grounding speaks volumes to inadequate safety inspections.
            The NATCA seems to be back in the problem column having threatened to sue the government during the recent shutdown. Reagan treated them appropriately; I’m not sure how PDJT would have responded had the union followed through with its threat.

            Plus I never did figure out how Chao’s family ownership of a 17- ship shipping company doesn’t conflict with her or McConnell’s positions. Though Chao doesn’t have any ownership interest in the company, how likely is it she would make or enforce rules that would harm her family’s business?

                  This has huge consequences in schools and a lot of the Parkland parents thought this initiative, forced on the schools by Obama, was critical in not expelling the shooter on a timely basis.

                  Of course DeVos has to contend with MAJOR pushback fro the teachers union and the Left too.

      President Trump has said that he will hit them like they’ve never been hit before. He has the goods on them. Problem is the Deep State is not ever going to police or investigate or indict itself. When President Trump plays that card are you willing to go to war against your own government or are you going to abide?

      You think AG Bill Barr is going to clean house? Look at that guy’s face. He might as well have “bureaucrat” tattooed across his forehead.

      Normalcy bias is a “normal” human psychological condition. Most of you reading this cannot accept the fact that your own government is utterly, systemically corrupt. That your own government is an existential threat to the Constitution, your freedom and your children’s future. Your own government hates you and seeks to destroy you.

      These facts contradict everything you have ever been taught and everything you believe. Your mind refuses to accept it. The only people in this Country who do not suffer from normalcy bias are combat veterans and law enforcement officers from high crime areas. They know first hand that anyone is capable of anything given the right circumstances.

      President Trump is a genius. Maybe he can fix this within the existing system. But I just can’t see a legal, Constitutional outcome. The other side completely ignores the rule of law. The other side is demanding civil war and a coupe. This is the same play book that the other side has followed for the last 100 years.

      Now is a time for deep, personal introspection. Are you willing to pick up that rifle, to take up arms against the domestic enemies of our Constitution? Are you willing to water the Tree of Liberty with the blood of domestic tyrants…if President Trump issues the call?

In time, the water pressure cannot be held back by the undermined dam, and the deluge is unleashed.

    At the same time, we are witnessing a race between the forces for good, versus the (D) led impeachment. Since the Chamber of Commerce (R) traitors are likely to vote to convict PDJT of the fabricated Impeachment, It is down to a race to see who wins. Will PDJT be able to expose the witch hunting DoJ FISA abuses and clean out the DoJ before being thrown from office? I pray so.

      Newton: In your last paragraph you mention FISA court abuses.

      I am now under the impression that asking the FISA court to start a counter intelligence operation does not face the same high legal hurtles as asking the court to start a criminal operation. I suspect suspicion is sufficient for a CI op warrant.

      The reasons I surmise this comes from two things. First SCOTUS has done nothing. Second SCOTUS has allowed info gathered from a CI op to be used to criminally convict Manford, etc.

        What you say is true, but trivially, I think.

        All the actions you’ve described are Executive Branch actions, taken by employees in Exec Branch agencies.

        I don’t believe the Supreme Court EVER takes the initiative to actively intercede in matters of the other 2 branches, does it?

        I’m no gummint expert but my understanding of the Supreme Court simply rules on what is brought before it (and almost always stuff that’s worked its way up from lower and appeals courts).

        Of the Exec Branch activities you described, do we have any idea what any of that has been brought to the Supreme Court docket?

        “Nothing” would be my guess.

        Even in the Manafort case you mention, has he appealed and had that appeal work up the appeals court chain? Has he even appealed at all?

        I don’t think so.

        Has anyone filed a lawsuit against the FISA court or about those warrants that could be heard by the Supremes? I don’t think so, or at least not that we know.

        Anyone’s welcome to educate me, pls

    Can’t decide to laugh or cry that he chose to say ‘shocked’. I just don’t know if the coy statement that works towards a jury is the right tone for an audience that may contain independents still not sure why everything conducted by DOJ/Mueller is wrong. How do we inspire conservatives who have never registered to vote for 45 2020.

    Opinion time slots on Fox are not going to move anybody they don’t already ‘have’.

    Do Churches really need to give up their 501c3 status to start politicking from the pulpit? I don’t think there is going to be any other way.

    Maybe I am an unrealistic optimist—dont think so, as am usually a cynical realist—but this is IMO going nicely toward a ‘Big Ugly’ denoument. Three indicia:
    1. Tempo is increasing. Crescendo (increasing loudness). This snippet is an example of both. Collins releasing the Ohr transcript is an example, proving Fusion GPS’ Glenn Simpson perjured himself in his previous congressional testimony. Schiff coaching Cohen is an example—then Jim Jordan points out Cohen still perjured himself multiple times despite the coaching. Schiff outed as having lied in his written Nunes response last year. All that just this past week.
    2. General awareness is increasing. PDJT tweets are increasingly specific. Growing media coverage—MSM reporting Cohen likely perjured himslef again! Left leaners publicly prepping for Mueller to be a big disappointment.
    3. Those at Big Ugly risk are falling relatively silent. Comey, McCabe, Brennan, Clapper almost nowhere in either MSM or social media, unlike just a few months ago. They have to know the storm approaches and they have no shelter.

    As for timing, the closer to the election and elevating Dem nuttiness (AOC, Nadler) the more effectively devastating to Dems in 2020. No hurry. Enjoy the show.

      Where in a counter intelligence investigation is it legal for Hillary Law Firm and other DIMMS, including Hillary, to take NSA search results and launder to State and provide to SC to further harass people like Carter Page, POTUS staff and others and to in effect violate their civil rights as Americans? Where is it legal for these same snakes to also leak/disclose protected confidential, national security information?

          However since so much evidence has surfaced that revealed the FBI’s deceit regarding the FISA warrant applications, where is Chief Justice Roberts on the fact that the court was lied to? THAT action has been conspicuously and shamefully missing.

    I believe Ohr was used as a back channel with Christopher Steele, Glenn Simpsons, and the memory stick from his wife Nellie (and a stick from Simpson) for two reasons;

    1: Ohr reported to Joe Pientka, who memorialized the information each time in a 302 report. The corrupt FBI/Justice could then use that “source” of information to corroborate the dossier, while hiding the fact that it came from the same source, Steele/Simpson/Fusion.(like the way they used the Yahoo news story.)

    2: If Glen Simpson lied to the FBI he could be charged with lying to the FBI. Passing his “information” through Ohr insulated him from that risk.

    It isn’t clear to me if the repubs got to see the Pientka 302s. I would like to know if Ohr is named in the 302, or if Ohr is referred to in the 302 as a “confidential source.” Even if Ohr is named, they could still refer to Ohr as a confidential source in a FISA warrant. If the 302 doesn’t say Ohr got the information from Steele and Simpson, in black and white, then you know for sure this was a scam.

        And it can make the Truth looks like a backwoods campfire on page 27 for one day….or not report on it a all.

        Good Bless Tom Fitton, but we need 100,000 of him.

  9. Why does Fitton have to fight Trump’s DOJ so hard to get documents released? We know Trump is a huge fan of Fitton.

    Trump should hire Fitton to be in charge of all FOIA requests. No one knows that process better than him.

    This is DELICIOUS! It’s a SMACKDOWN by Senator Kennedy, R-LA. It is only 5 minutes and 40 seconds of your time. Get the popcorn!

    If you want to see the Weasel McCabe’s interview that preceded Kennedy, where they LIE, a lot, & WHINE about the Manafort sentence and more, here it is:

    Psycho’s, both of them.

        Did you hear the blatant lie in the McCabe piece about the sentencing guidelines? She made it sound like he was SUPPOSED to get 20 years, not that it was the top end of the guideline.

        She changed her tune last minute on Kennedy because she knew he would call her on that if she tried it with him.

      Interesting that the left wants to keep McCabe in the public. He’s done his book tour, that’s usually the end of tv appearances.
      Wonder if he polls favorably on the left for honesty or something?
      Also wonder if he’s angling for a cable contributor gig

        He’s their hero. He started the Illegal/illicit Mueller investigation. You heard her say it, repeatedly. He’s the one who to this day still lies that he doesn’t know what the insurance policy is.

        Of course he’s angling for a BIG TV JOB. All of the other LIARS from the last admin can do it, why shouldn’t he. He’s got bills to pay, and hopefully many lawyers in his future.

        PLUS, as Kennedy said, he’s a huckster, he’s got books to sell. Probably lots of them.

    One factor that may have some influence on the timing (if there is any timing) is court confirmations. He’s got 34 appeals court judges confirmed now. There’s only 5 more before the full Senate and 3 in Committee. Those three each for the Ninth. As one of the 5 is for the Ninth too. It’s moving surprisingly quick this year. Hope it continues.

    Btw. There still are 3 unnamed open seats. One more is for the Ninth.

    This will put a major dent in the corrupt Judges ability to subvert the Constitution. If he could only soon get one more SC pick.

        That is a good thought. However, this wasn’t the cabal’s first rodeo – there must be other misdeeds that are unrelated to PDJT that can show the abuses. I know that the legitimacy of Q is in question, but some (not all) of Q’s statements make sense. One is that they did this to Cruz also, which makes sense. If so, then declass those docs – shows the purely political pattern and plan without putting anyone in obstruction jeopardy.

    President Trump was all in before he announced. He knew his family and friends would be targeted. He will never give up, he will never give in, he will lead us to victory. No doubt their treachery may be deeper than expected but he is a far more formidable foe than they expected. He has achieved and continues to achieve the MAGA agenda which is further proof, to me, that we haven’t seen nothing yet. Personally, I’m getting to the point where I will accept the destructionof the U.S. if that’s what happens when PDJT releases the hell-fire releases to try to save our republic. Let it be restored based on the constitution and bill of rights or let it burn. I do not want to live in a dem shithole.

        Simpson researched stuff about Manafort back in the earlier 2000s. When Mary Jacoby blabbed about what a hero her husband, Glenny Boy was, she referenced his obsession with white collar perp, and CIA asset, Paul Manafort. Jacoby claimed Glenny Boy got interested in Trump when he hired Manafort.

        The reality of this situation is this–Manafort would work with the CIA and/or the State Department on whatever they wanted–whenever they wanted it–to delay or eliminate the danger of his prosecution. From posing as a CIA reporter for Pakistani Intelligence, probably for CIA, to trying to get the President of Ukraine to make a deal with the EU, Manafort kept doing things for the Deep State to avoid prosecution. The FBI agents investigating Manafort’s crimes had to satisfy themselves by telling John McCain to not hire Manafort in McCain’s 2008 campaign for President. FBI investigated Manafort for white collar violations for at least 15 years prior to his being hired by Trump to work convention delegates. They had him cold long ago. That was how Mueller/Weissmann was able to get such a fast conviction. They had stacks of FBI files and Prosecutorial Summary Reports to go through ahead of time. They didn’t need to wait 5 years to create all of that.

        Keep in mind, Glenny Boy and Mary Jacoby do the same kind of things for foreign politicians and political parties that Manafort did. That is how Simpson and Jacoby got THEIR contacts in the intelligence community. Glenny Boy is a media figure, too.

    Trump is first and foremost a smart and accomplished man. On top of that, he’s been President for over two years now and has therefore amassed a trove of the highest quality information. I don’t see a need for him to have taken drastic action at any point thus far into his administration. He’s succeeding fine as is, thank you very much.

    But if he does eventually have to take drastic action, the main item of which is universally agreed to be the release of the unredacted FISA warrants targeting both his campaign and his administration, I have no doubt that he’ll choose the most advantageous timing for it. He’s said straight out that he’s saving it. All Mueller can do is stall, and it seems like he has no choice but to do just that. How Barr and Rosenstein’s imminent (?) departure play into this is anyone’s guess at this point in time.

    The Trump joke about Russia and Hilary e-mails was the Clinton machine’s time to pounce on the theme of Trump’s being unfit to be president. IMO, the Clinton machine packaged political opposition research (Steele/Simpson/Fusion GPS) and a robust media strategy in part to get a Trump-Russia investigation opened up. That part of the Clinton machine strategy was too unreal, had too many required parts and was too risky to work, especially with a candidate like Trump who counterpunched and seemed real.

    Hillary Clinton on tight race, accusations against Trump
    aired on July 31, 2016

    -snip-
    WALLACE: And hello against from Fox News in Washington.

    With the conventions over and just 99 days left, the general election campaign is officially on. Hillary Clinton and her running mate Tim Kaine are on a bus tour through the Rust Belt. And we caught up with them yesterday in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, amid reports that Russia has hacked into Democratic Party file, even a program they shared with the Clinton team. We sat down with Clinton for the first time in this campaign, and that’s where we started.

    (BEGIN VIDEOTAPE)

    WALLACE: Secretary Clinton, welcome back to “Fox News Sunday” and congratulations.

    CLINTON: Thank you so much, Chris. And it really is good to be here.

    WALLACE: Do you believe that Russia is behind the hacking and release of the DNC e-mails? And do you think that Vladimir Putin wants to defeat you or see you defeated and Donald Trump elected president?

    CLINTON: Well, Chris, here’s what I think we know. We know that Russian intelligence services, which is part of the Russian government which is under the firm control of Vladimir Putin, hacked into the DNC. And we know that he arranged for a lot of those e-mails to be released.

    And we know that Donald Trump has shown a very troubling willingness to back up Putin, to support Putin, whether it’s saying that NATO wouldn’t come to the rescue of allies if they were invaded, talking about removing sanctions from Russian officials after they were imposed by the United States and Europe together, because of Russia’s aggressiveness in Crimea and Ukraine, his praise for Putin which is I think quite remarkable.

    WALLACE: So, are you suggesting that Putin would rather see him as president than you.

    CLINTON: Well, I’m not going to jump to that conclusion, but I think laying out the facts raises issues about Russian interference in our elections, in our democracy. We would not tolerate that from any other country, particularly one with whom we have adversarial positions. And for Trump to both encourage that and to praise Putin despite what appears to be a deliberate effort to try to affect the election I think raises national security issues.

        Echo chamber gone bad. lol. Director Comey certainly didn’t want to be anywhere near an October 2016 statement about Russian interference in the election partly because it would beg “difficult questions” about what they were doing and thinking. I think he preferred not to be around any statement into perpetuity, except the “James gets to brief the pee-dossier to the President-elect” briefing happened to him.

        Fortunately those “difficult questions” really get to start being answered with the release of the Congressional transcripts, starting with Bruce Ohr’s transcript.

        OIG report pg 377
        https://www.scribd.com/document/381806664/2016-Election-Final-Report-06-14-18-0#from_embed

        In an October 5, 2016 email, Comey explained his position on the statement to Central Intelligence Agency Director John Brennan and Director of National Intelligence James Clapper. Comey stated, in part:

        I think the window has closed on the opportunity for an official statement, with 4 weeks until a presidential election. I think the marginal incremental disruption/inoculation impact of the statement would be hugely outweighed by the damage to the [Intelligence Community’s] reputation for independence.

        I could be wrong (and frequently am) but Americans already “know” the Russians are monkeying around on behalf of one candidate. Our “confirming” it (1) adds little to the public mix, (2) begs difficult questions about both how we know that and what we are going to do about it, and (3) exposes us to serious accusations of launching our own “October surprise.” That last bit is utterly untrue, but a reality in our poisonous atmosphere.
