Baker Transcript Highlights Additional Evidence Behind Strzok/Page Texts: “Lock In Trump”…

In the Day #2 transcript released today FBI chief legal counsel James Baker was asked about a specific series of Lisa Page and Peter Strzok text messages on the evening President Trump fired FBI Director James Comey.

Comey was fired on May 9th, 2017.  Later that night Peter Strzok and Lisa Page had the following text conversation:

5/9/17 8:14pm And we need to open the case we’ve been waiting on now while Andy is acting.

5/10/17 05:29am We need to lock in [REDACTED] in a formal chargeable way. Soon.

5/10/17 05:30am I agree. I’ve been pushing and will reemphasize with Bill [Priestap].

(link to texts)

FBI chief legal counsel James Baker’s response to questions about this text message exchange indicates that President Trump (‘Trump’ or ‘POTUS’) was the name under the redaction.

This is in line with FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe previously saying he did actually open an immediate criminal investigation on May 10th, 2017.

According to his own admissions (NBC and CBS), Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe immediately began a criminal ‘obstruction’ investigation the next day, Wednesday May 10th; and he immediately enlisted Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

These McCabe statements line up with with text message conversations between FBI lawyer Lisa Page and FBI agent Peter Strzok – (same dates 5/9 and 5/10):

(text message link)

It now appears that important redaction is “POTUS” or “TRUMP”.  [Yes, this is evidence that some unknown DOJ officials redacted information from these texts that would have pointed directly to the intents of the DOJ and FBI. [WARNING: Don’t get hung on it.]

The next day, Thursday May 11th, 2017, Andrew McCabe testifies to congress. With the Comey firing fresh in the headlines, Senator Marco Rubio asked McCabe: “has the dismissal of Mr. Comey in any way impeded, interrupted, stopped, or negatively impacted any of the work, any investigation, or any ongoing projects at the Federal Bureau of Investigation?”

McCabe responded: “So there has been no effort to impede our investigation to date. Quite simply put, sir, you cannot stop the men and women of the FBI from doing the right thing, protecting the American people and upholding the Constitution.”

However, again referencing his own admissions, on Friday May 12th McCabe met with DAG Rod Rosenstein to discuss the issues, referencing the criminal ‘obstruction’ case McCabe had opened just two days before.  According to McCabe:

… “[Rosenstein] asked for my thoughts about whether we needed a special counsel to oversee the Russia case. I said I thought it would help the investigation’s credibility. Later that day, I went to see Rosenstein again. This is the gist of what I said: I feel strongly that the investigation would be best served by having a special counsel.” (link)

          I don’t think so when that person is the chief LE officer under the Constitution. Trump in asking Comey that question can be said to be doing so as the titular head of the very investigation itself. And Comey’s answers, if untrue, could be seen as obstruction itself. Beyond that, there is no defense to lying to Congress as McCabe appears to have done. Either he lied to congress under oath or he opened a fraudulent obstruction file. He’s caught one way or the other.

      The link goes to this article by TheLastRefugee: “Beware of Obama’s Outrage Trap – Susan Rice’s “By The Book” Memo…” … ‘However, amid the increased calls for sunlight and accountability, there are well-intended voices walking perilously close to an outrage trap.’ … ‘However, there is a trap laid here and Democrats are hoping outraged voices will walk straight into it.’ … ‘This is not a “CYA” memo, this is a justification memo for use AFTER the Trump-Russia collusion/conspiracy narrative collapsed; if the impeachment effort failed.’

      {Me = The linked article is worth a read. The ‘deep state’ has tried to construct a ‘stay out of jail excuse.’ TheLastRefugee has explained, Trump should go to the beginnings of the ‘get rid of Trump’ effort, and from there hold everyone accountable. The people at TheLastRefugee could be 3D Chess Masters.}
      Wikipedia = “”Three-dimensional chess” is used colloquially to describe complex, dynamic systems with many competing entities and interests, including politics, diplomacy and warfare. To describe an individual as “playing three-dimensional chess” implies a higher-order understanding and mastery of the system beyond the comprehension of their peers or ordinary observers.”

          If RR was on the Obama/Clinton team the President would surely have indicated it. Instead he has praised him. And RR gave confirmation with AG Barr there was no collusion.

            Your good guy Rosenstein signed a fraudulent FISA application, illegally appointed SC Mueller without specifying a crime, supervised that “investigation” while being a material witness himself, then later issued the super-secret scope memo or whatever that thing everyone wants to see called (all while knowing that there was no collusion but allowing the media and the Democrats to call the President traitor 24/7 for years), offered to wear a wire in order to surreptitiously record the President, refused to cooperate with Nunes, Jordan et al. to the point of being threatened with contempt, and obviously approved of the manner the SC conducted the witch hunt which would undoubtedly have been still going on if Barr was not there.

            Enough with apologetics, this guy Rosenstein is a rat. He is still DAG (on his way out) only because Barr wants him to sign the document exonerating POTUS. He started this charade, no way he would have been given a chance to walk away without his signature on the final document.

              Excellent synopsis Summer. I dont personally have an opinion on RR. I have always hoped his hats were white. but if you listen to John Dowd interview you must question this. If you take the 7th floor exes actions as a whole, you must question their motives too.

              Would a secret and non public investigation really be in jeopardy if Director Comey had quit? FBI has 30,000 employees and 15,000 agents and the head thespian leaves which makes each one of the organizations principals feel like they cant move forward. This doesnt give me a lot of confidence in this organization’s leadership regardless of their crimes. But crimes/conspiracy sure help explain this debacle

                Barr is holding him to make him accountable for his actions. He and the rest of Mueller’s team still there will exonerate Trump, and be part of the end like it or not. They have to see the bright light coming toward them..

                Sundance has pointed out that the Mueller sit down with President Trump a couple of days before he was appointed as Special Prosecutor was very likely just a smokescreen. There was never any real consideration of making Robert Mueller FBI Director. Instead, McCabe and Rosenstein had already tabbed Mueller as Special Counsel, even if they did not announce that to the public.

                With Mueller already assigned as Special Counsel, what was the purpose of the sit down between Mueller and President Trump? That would have been for Mueller to interview Trump rather than for Trump to interview Mueller. And what would Mueller be attempting to get from such an interview? What Mueller was looking for was to find some hook for charging Trump with obstruction of justice.

                  In the fullness of time I predict we will learn that it was Mueller’s idea first and foremost to become special counsel to accomplish the job before him as a capo in the shadows; his idea for RR to write the memo to induce Trump to fire Comey (whom Mueller considered an expendable dope) to provide the pretext. RR reports to Mueller in the Organization. His lieutenant Weissmann knew in August of 2016 the dossier was a Clinton hit piece. And we’ll find out at the root of this the motivation was not extreme partisan rancor, The motie was to hide the criminal enterprise with its tentacles in many rackets – Uranium One, the Iran money heist, Ukraine, the list goes on.

          Sometimes men change their intentions in an instant. And act on the changed intention without knowing in advance what the outcome may be from the act itself. Rosie may have talked conspiratorially with McCabe about ‘wearing a wire’ , but an hour later concluded that there was no prospect of pulling it off (“it” being taking Trump out legally via McCabe’s harebrained and malicious sedition) and immediately decided that he had to take McCabe’s ‘investigation’ out of McCabe’s hands and put that investigation in an outsider’s hands. Thus, a SC. However, in looking at Rosie’s motivations, you must be mindful that he drafted and wrote the memo urging Comey’s firing. So if Comey’s firing played at all in the McCabe ‘investigation’ whether it be Muh Russia or Muh Obstruction, the firing of Comey by Trump seems weak sauce for any criminal act or justification for any investigation. Clearly Rosie thought Comey should go. Apart from Trump’s “Russia thing” comment to the Russian ambassador commenting on the firing of Comey (which we know wasn’t about any ‘investigation’ or about Flynn, but related to the FBI’s refusal to publically state what Comey had thrice told Trump…that Trump was not under investigation), it would always be a heavy lift to say Trump’s firing of Comey could result in an legal jeopardy to Trump for do so. Rosie’s memo acts as a powerful inoculation against any assertion of Trump corruption in doing what the DOJ Acting AG authorized. I am of the view that Rosie is a White Hat. Or at least functioned like one when under pressure.

Why would he do that if he knew everything was false?

      I heard Joe DeGenova say today on Howie Carr’s show that Barr is retaining him only under the auspices of “keeping your enemy close.” RR is cooperating with Barr because he knows he is compromised and is seeking to obtain leniency in what he sees is coming.

        He knew this was all BS from the beginning, but he either went along, or did nothing to stop them. He was the one that wrote Mueller’s scope letter and apparently limited Mueller into only looking at one side. He recommended the firing of Comey and then went along, or watched Mueller try to build an obstruction case against PDJT for doing it. He allowed Mueller and his team of angry democrats to abuse their prosecutorial and investigative powers multiple times, which I believe they had hoped to goad the president into firing more people in order to give them more ammo towards an obstruction case. He was most certainly on-board with building an obstruction case against PDJT, which was their intentions for most of their two year witch hunt. He signed off on each and every one of Muellers stupid indictments for maximum public/political damage. He approved or looked the other way on all the overly aggressive arrests… Only after JS was told to resign, and MW and later Barr got involved, did he finally give up the gig.

    McCabe is such a liar, I bet he was pissed about the special counsel appointment; but only because he thought he could do a better job!

    In hindsight, Rodentstein made the prudent but incorrect move, to get the investigation away from hopelessly biased Andy McCabe.

    The truth is, McCabe was a man of action, but also stupidity. Although, his quick action russian-inquiry against Sessions either neutered the keebler elf, or gave Jeff the traitor cover to watch the President get taken out from the sidelines. I’m leaning towards the latter. Rodentstein thought McCabe would blow the investigation, their one chance to get Trump, so he needed the “well respected” political assassin Bob Mueller to crush Trump. McCabe would’ve made quicker, bolder moves, like those instant investigations he sprung, Andy may have gotten to Trump to make a rash decision.

    Instead, slow and steady Bob failed, as Trump played the long game, and made no mistakes.

Marxism (anti-Americanism) has been part of their historical legacy due to true, violent “racism,” ended in the 1990s. (Part of the miracle of American Constitutional Republicanism.)

          “The majority on the left” has to be minus those who want only a handout, not a hand up. We have been birthing and supporting way too many of them over the last at least 30 years. A little limit setting, some discipline, and interesting incentives might entice them to actual “labor” or “sweat of the brow” efforts. The emotion of true joy comes after accomplishments, especially when the individual thought they would never make it. Amazing it is!

          There is one additional element for that “majority on the left.” They have believed that the Dem Party stood for opportunity for everyman and everywoman. They also have believed that the Republican Party is owned by the greedy corporations and has been since the late 19th century, when they were legally deemed “persons” in the eyes of the law, ursurping the rights and privileges of American citizens. “The majority on the left” must be helped to see that both the current Dems and most of the Repubs work for greedy global corporations and no one else. (Marxists are in their employ for now.) The greedy global corporations are the ones who have been growing the bureaucracy and implementing both policies and lawfare for their own, and only their own, enrichment. End national sovereignty, they say. Let us rule, they propagandize.

          Those few remaining Dems and former Dems — actually classical liberals who want limited government — must be helped to open their eyes to the propaganda that has been blinding them 24/7. Then President Trump can MAGA everywhere and with a greater Monster Vote and Monster Majority.

          Post script. In my profession, where I have been eliminated from the leadership once I let it be known that political ridiculing was not appropriate in our training courses or seminars, I was finally able to separate out in conversation the difference between a “narcissistic” personality and political policies that make American great. It was amazing. “Their” – everyone, to a person — only defense of all the attempts to “get rid of Trump” was his “narcissism.” No one disliked his policies. I consider this real progress.

          Now if only we could get some real national media outlets that use the “airwaves” for American, not globalist-corporate, purposes, these Americans might be able to get real investigative reporting on who the true narcissists and destructive politicians are.

    Again, the Justification for lieing to Congress, no obstruction even while starting an obstruction investigation, is didn’t want to ‘tip off’ the Target (PDJT) that He WAS the target.

    NOT saying I buy it, but THAT will be the defence. There are a whole host of Defences they HAVE, and will continue to roll out.

    They will use these Defences in the Court of Public Opinion, and in Criminal court.

    “From we did nothing wrong, what would you have us do?”

    “I was incompetent, not criminal, I got bad intelligence.”

    “It wasn’t ME, it was SOG. Blame superior, subordinate or in Comeys case, both.”

    “It was just POLITICS”, first trial ballooned by Dershowitz.

    “This attempt, accusing a coup attempt, is POLITICAL retribution of the ‘losers’, banana republic stuff!”

    In the Court of Public Opinion, such defences will resonate, for those afflicted with TDS.

    In Criminal Court, with a Jury, these Defences encourage “reasonable doubt”.

    Criminal cases all boil down to 3 things;

    Burden of proof
    Admisable evidence
    Reasonable doubt.

    The perps will not hesitate to tear the country apart with TRIALS, as they have shown no indication of putting the countries interests ahead of their own, hard to see them changing coarse, when their freedom is on the line, and neck in the noose.

    Can NOT afford to have TRIALS.
    MUST have guilty pleas, for the sake of the country.

    And, must be investigated by FBI, and Prosecuted by DOJ. And the Prosecutions must show no one is above the law.

    While their was an agreement NOT to prosecute Nixon, “best intrrests of the country”, in this case to NOT prosecute Obama, would NOT be in the best interests of the country, IMHO.

Do you think it’s appropriate for folks to be aware that the number four person at the Department of Justice is involved in the chain of custody and his wife is involved in any capacity in creating a piece of evidence and those facts are not disclosed to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court? Mr. Baker. So if what you say is true, and I don’t know it to be true, then it seems as though the institution of the Department of Justice should provide that to the FISA court. The difficulty is do the people who are actually going to the FISA court know these details, right? That’s the problem. You have an — in this case, an FBI agent who literally will be signing the application attesting to the accuracy of the information. You have particular attorneys reviewing it, a particular structure up to and including the Director and so on. If

His self-serving memos about each contact with POTUS were steps in what the small group hoped and expected would become a full-fledged obstruction investigation.

      In their view, the surprise firing of Comey was the icing on the cake. They saw the firing as simply one more, and the culminating, act in an ongoing effort to obstruct. At that point, as they saw it, no one could or would question their opening a formal investigation of POTUS.

    PERHAPS THE MOST IMPORTANT UNDERLYING FACT:

    As McCabe indicated, there was the time no valid obstruction case when they opened the obstruction investigation.

    The investigation was NEVER about looking at an event that had already taken place.

    It was ALWAYS about CREATING THE CIRCUMSTANCES TO PROVOKE TRUMP into actions that could then be construed as obstruction. It was setup to lay a perjury trap for the President or goad him into action that they could then pursue. It was not merely in search of a crime, it was designed to create one.

    And it failed.

    I now believe what happened was Mueller checked out a year and a half ago when it was clear there was no “collusion” but he allowed Weissmann et al to use the investigation as their play thing to try to draw the President into a trap. His counsel wisely avoided the traps they set for him, and when Barr was finally sworn in, he told Mueller to present what he had. They had to close up shop at that time, never being able to provoke any indictable action from President Trump.

      And it failed.

      So, who at the FBI was tasked with creating the psychological profile on Donald Trump?
      They have an entire profiling department, correct?
      Evidentially, some schlub in the profiling department concluded:
      Trump is ego-driven in the extreme
      Trump is rash and impatient in his actions
      Trump can be pushed, he can be made to act and speak quickly and without consideration of consequences
      Trump is often revenge-driven. He enjoys getting even when slighted or out-maneuvered. “I love getting even.”
      Trump, when he feels cornered will often react in unpredictable ways.
      Trump is impatient
      Trump has never been subjected to on-going sustained attacks on himself and his family. Moreover, he is more likely to react when attacks come from all sides, especially from those he has been known and come to trust. He counts LOYALTY as the most important attribute of an employee or staff member. Nothing would bother him more than disloyalty.
      He is new to the game of politics and therefore can be easily out-maneuvered on a new playing field.
      Trump takes great strength from his wife and family. Attacks on them would distract and anger him more than almost anything else.
      Blah, Blah, Blah.

      In actuality, Trump plays the LONG game and has the patience of Job*.
      They miscalculated BIGLY.

      * The expression has its origin in James 5:10–11: “Brothers and sisters, as an example of patience in the face of suffering, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord. As you know, we count as blessed those who have persevered. You have heard of Job’s perseverance and have seen what the Lord finally brought about. The Lord is full of compassion and mercy.”

      Job’s patience stands out because Job’s story is extreme in the amount of suffering he endured. Job lost all of his children and his wealth in a single day. He then was covered in painful sores, and his wife offered him no support—she encouraged him to give up, curse God, and die (Job 2:9). When Job’s three friends came to comfort him, they could not even recognize him from a distance (Job 2:12). Adding to Job’s pain, his friends falsely accused him of wrongdoing and blamed his troubles on his unrepentant heart. Through it all, Job patiently endured (Job 2:10).

This is potentially their way out of this mess by finding some possibility of the predicate (right or wrong) giving them the plausible reason for launching (continuing?) their investigation.

    I hope I am only being paranoid here and that Barr is the honorable person DeGenova claims that he is. But the possibility exists that the defense of good intentions gone wrong could absolve all of the people involved. Only time will tell and I hope my concerns are completely unfounded.

There needs to be a lesson here, complete with consequences. Dr. Spock did major damage in changing how children were raised. We don’t need that same “everyone gets a trophy, I know he didn’t mean it, I don’t think he’ll do it again” mentality. There needs to be a real lesson learned by those who sought to destroy others for the sake of a different opinion. It’s that “tolerance” that the liberals hope they can beat us with. Again. Well, enough is enough. Time for Trump to find Truman’s little desk sign (The Buck Stops Here) and do it!

      The predicate or lack thereof is key to everything. Far as we know, there isn’t one, especially at the time well before Crossfire Hurricane started when Halper and Mifsud were trying to entrap Page and Papadop.

      When Barr spoke he had to be careful to not appear to have prejudged the case. His saying that he believes spying happened is a very strong statement. His qualification about the predicate is necessary lawyer-speak for him to appear to be and be impartial.

        Re Barr’s qualifications, yes he could say nothing else without giving an opening to the black hats to discredit him.
        Re predicates: let me advance an argument. Mueller said that “no evidence” of collusion had been found. He did not say “actionable” or “strong” or “direct”… he said “no” and he applied that to not just Trump, but “any Americans”. Logically, that tells me that ALL the evidence that was used to ostensibly predicate the investigations and warrants was proved to be false by virtue of two years of investigation. ALL the evidence!

        Is this logically correct, and if so does it inform the strategy the AG should pursue?

    Interesting that Comey reaches out to Trump, alone, one-on-one to brief Trump on only parts of the Steele dossier (so that it can later be leaked to the press). He doesn’t do this through “proper channels” — i.e. through DOJ to WH counsel — but directly, one-on-one.

    Then, Comey seems to think it is inappropriate that Trump later reaches out to him directly — e.g. invites him to dinner, etc. That stuff did happen latter, after he briefed Trump on the dossier — didn’t it? Seems at the least disingenuous if not an outright fabrication.

    One thing that I’m learning as we wade through all of this with CTH’s guidance and education……

    We all expect that the ‘good guys’ in this battle can take actions, or get other ‘good guys’ involved to expose the vile crimes, or ‘right the wrongs.’ But really, the more I understand it, these ‘good guys’ are very limited by existing structures in the government.

    For example, when we hear Barr say that (paraphrasing here) that he is working with Mueller and Rosenstein to do the proper redactions on the Mueller Report, we tend to think…”why would Barr rely on these scumbags??!!” But in reality, there is probably no one else that Barr can rely on…he has to go to whoever is in that titled position to get his own job done.

    Nunes frequently states that he is doing all that he can, and other gov’t agencies have to take the ball and hopefully run with it.

    Hopefully, Barr is straight up and clean….which after his House and Senate testimonies, seems to be the case.

      But then, he has to go ‘off-the-farm’ so to speak, when he goes to see Trump in Trump Towers after the election in Nov. 2016. He does this without notifying his superior chain of command. Maybe he does this because he knows who is corrupt above him the chain of command, and realizes that his ‘heads-up’ will die quickly unless he goes ‘off-the-farm.’

    ASSANGE TAKEN INTO CUSTODY

    Saw it on “Today” just an hour or so ago. Julian Assange was taken out of the Ecuadoran embassy in London. It is just a matter of time before the indictment for espionage is unsealed and he is extradited to the United States for trial.

    Without the DNC emails going to Wikileaks, there would be no grounds to charge Assange with espionage as a Russian asset. The fact it was the DNC emails Assange published caused the US left to become hostile to both Assange personally and Wikileaks.

    Now, we have some clue as to why Mueller threw up his hands, after getting a six month extension on his grand jury and using only a month or so of it. Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch, predicted Mueller would continue through 2020 after the extension. Then Wikileaks announced that any hour, any day, Assange was to be handed over to British authorities. Mueller folded up shortly after that announcement. The Establishment got what they wanted out Trump-Russia-Wikileaks. All that is left is the prosecution. The publishing of the emails by Wikileaks was integral in the framing of Assange as a Russian intelligence asset, and Wikileaks as a “hostile intelligence service.” That was one of the major, if not the most important, role the DNC email theft, and the fake “Russian hack” of the DNC played in the entire Russiagate affair.

      If they focus on the Wikileaks, they have two serious problems. They call attention to:

      content of the emails on her server;
      Debbie Wasserman Schultz affair;
      Death of Seth Rich

        It is the CLAIM that Russia interfered in the election, and caused Trump to win, that fueled Trump-Russia. You know that. I don’t have to tell you that. However, this could have been accomplished by publishing all the damaging emails SOMEWHERE BESIDES WIKILEAKS, such as DCLeaks, where some were published prior to Wikileaks.

        The publication at Wikileaks made Assange an accessory in helping Russia to get Trump elected, according the Trump-Russia narrative. This makes Assange a Russian asset, which is EXACTLY what the Establishment is accusing him of being, and for exactly that reason. It would also make Trump an illegitimate President, which was either the main reason for the operation, or the secondary reason with framing Assange the primary reason.

        Hillary’s illegal server has nothing to do with this other than the media had Trump-Russia to talk about instead of it.

        Debbie Wasserman Schultz is irrelevant to anything about Trump-Russia unless she knew about the fake hack scheme. That has not been proven.

        Seth Rich has nothing to do with what I wrote and none of you have proven he had anything to do with the theft of the emails or the transfer to Wikileaks. I won’t say if he did or did not for those reasons. When you can prove he did, beyond a reasonable doubt, I will agree with you. Not until then. No one has any reason to bring it up in relation to any of these matters. It is an UNSOLVED HOMICIDE and that is all.

        Anthony Weiner has nothing to do with the fake Russain hack of the DNC. That was an entirely different case that did not involve anything that happened to the DNC network. It is totally IRRELEVANT.

        Without someone giving the DNC emails to Wikileaks, and blaming it all on Russia, I don’t think they get Assange arrested since he is a journalist and can publish documents such as the DNC emails. A Russian spy or asset cannot. Now, he can be prosecuted here as a Russian agent and not a journalist.

          Assange is very popular and he has legions to help him. Seth Rich’s ghost will haunt and the word hacked emails only makes people remember that they failed to prosecute Hillary. This is a better move for the Trump team than for Muellers.

                As Sundance pointed out on Twitter just yesterday, most Americans believe Russia hacked the DNC to help Trump win the election. Now, the Russians still hacked the DNC, and gave the emails to Wikileaks, but Trump did not “collude” wit hthe Russians in that effort. You STILL have the Crowdstrike report as the only record of what happened and the Mueller indictment that ATTEMPTS to describe details of Russian activity on the DNC network. Even REPUBLICANS say the Russians did these things. Nunes claims everything Mueller said, the GOP said first. They just did not concede Trump was an accessory and Mueller has agreed to this, for some unknown reason.

                Because of all the above, with the Crowdstrike report and Mueller’s indictment being BEST EVIDENCE of who stole the DNC emails (Russians), you MUST attack those findings. You just want to do this by saying Seth Rich did it. I say you can’t do that without proving Seth Rich did it at least at the level of PROBABLE CAUSE, which is all an indictment establishes. You don’t have probable cause just because he was murdered. It just isn’t there.

                I am not telling you not to cite Seth Rich. I can’t stop any of you from doing that. This is ADVICE as to what happens when you do that:

                1. Since you cannot prove Rich did it, you are shooting yourselves in the foot everytime you bring it up as if it was fact. If you lose, the other side uses that to claim their narrative–Russia–is TRUE. That is the way the game is played.

                2. When I’ve had those people on the run, on Disqus or Twitter, it was by challenging Crowdstrike’s findings and their failure to stop the theft of the data. You know what they always do? Use Seth Rich as a strawman, or ask me if I believe Seth Rich did it. Now, why do they do this? Because they get a CONSPIRACY THEORY to attack, that’s why, and the subject is changed from the weakest point in their narrative to an unproven theory from their opposition. None of those people are afraid of Seth Rich being mentioned. They WELCOME it.

                So, if you want to keep doing it, have at it. After three years of it, nothing has changed, so likely nothing will after another three years. Until someone provides the proof that Seth Rich was responsible, it won’t go anywhere.

I could not find any information that he actually had murder charges files against him by federal or state authorities, just insinuations that he and others were so charged. Anyway, IMO, if the FISA warrant(s) were falsely obtained, it seems that the chain of evidence to cause the interviews’ process crimes about lying to the FBI and other charges, maybe even Manaford’s, were illegally charged.

    Brennan will be held responsible by 44 admin as well. THAT’s what the justification memo is for. It’s to distance everyone from Brennan original acts.

    These are the two/3 who will be on the chopping block. Potentially Comey a fourth as well. That’s it. All other deep state will have to be quietly rooted out by Cabinet Secretary chiefs of staff in the next 18 months and then a major purge January 2020 to have a chance at preventing the Deep State fro doing this in perpetuity.

      I’d prefer a circular firing squad with Obama in the middle, but this would do as a distant second. (What was he recently said about circles again?;)

      I think that is the best we can hope for. This war is over. It’s certainly better than the alternative that would have happened if Hillary had won. They may win a few more battles, but they have lost their power and they won’t get it back. Onto the next war – Islam taking over the weak and silly Progressive/ Democrat party and gaining momentum fast. That’s why the antisemitism is going unchecked, it helps them fundraise They will eat up what’s left of the DNC and make it their own in short order.

    These two Treasonous serpents left quite a trail albeit in lieu of others leaving as much and more, let alone what’s remains “missing”. Many questions were never asked during these “hearings” of those beyond Strzok/Page which in the end are only symptoms of the main disease. One I want pounded is Strzok’s reference to FISA “judge” RUDOLPH CONTRERAS indicating AT LEAST Strzok’s cursory relationship with him. And too, regarding Contreras recusal some 6 days after he presided over Mike Flynn’s first hearing. The latter question was in fact posed to DoJust-Us, but never responded too at least that (I) can. On all the rest, much of it FOIA’s by Tommy Fitton and Jay Selulow 9God Bless them) there is certainly quite more than enough to immediately impanel grand juries – several of them considering its sheer breadth.

    For all of you fellow Deplorables wondering if Rosey is a white hate or black hat, remember who his wife is:

    Lisa Barsoomian, wife of Rod Rosenstein. Lisa is a high-powered attorney in Washington, DC, who specializes in opposing Freedom of Information Act requests on behalf of the Deep State, err, I mean, the Intelligence Communities.

    Lisa Barsoomian works for R. Craig Lawrence, an attorney who has represented Robert Mueller three times, James Comey five times, Barack Obama forty-five times, Kathleen Sebellius fifty-six times, Bill Clinton forty times, and Hillary Clinton seventeen times between 1991 and 2017.

    Barsoomian participated in some of this work personally and has herself represented the FBI at least five separate times. It would be great to research the specifics of the cases she worked in, many of the documents from the Court Docket relating to these cases have been removed from the D.C. District and Appeals Court, including her representation for Clinton in 1998’s case Hamburg. V. Clinton.

    Her loyalties are clearly with the entities that make up the Deep State, as are her husbands.

    They are a DC Globalist Power Couple, and they mean to destroy Donald Trump under the bidding of their Globalist Masters. Rod Rosenstein should not have any position in President Trump’s administration, let alone one with so much power to harm the Office of the Presidency.

    Any questions?

    The MSM might accidentally blow up the “fact” that Russians hacked the DNC e mails.
    Think about it. Why would Mueller shut down his Probe if he thought Assange could lead him to the Russian hackers?
    Don’t you love it when Journalist stumble onto facts and accurately report them?

      I’ll give them credit. They never give up. While this is good for the acolytes and keeps them singing in the choir, it’s over. Really it is. It’s almost sad now, listening to people defend the spying. The lefties who were cheering “stone him” will take comfort in this news, but after two years of hype, the Mueller report was as motivating as Hillary’s election night firworks show. They were all told it would be great, grand, they would triumph over the Deplorables for once and for all. Only it didn’t happen. Again. They have a sneaking suspicion that the rest is going to be more of the same. Because it is.

    I’ve come to the conclusion that Eric Holder is a key missing player in the entire practice of weaponizing agencies and people within the Federal Government. We know Barack Obama viewed anyone and everyone who he thought might oppose him as an enemy of the State, and used every tool including the IRS, State Department, DOJ, FBI, INS, and CIA to prosecute, persecute, and destroy its enemies. I’m positive that Eric Holder has his fingerprints all over the corruption that started before Benghazi. Maybe as early as the sale of weapons to the Mexican Cartels. The latest focus on the Trump campaign and people involved is not the beginning of corruption, but the continuation of a pattern of corruption by people who didn’t care about law, personal rights, or the Constitution

  42. You are correct. Eric “The Red” Holder (not unlike Harry Reid) bailed before it got hot.

    Nevertheless, he was not only there for most of this (including the targeted prosecutions of Dinesh D’ Souza, Bob Menendez, Joe Arpaio and eventually Michael Flynn), but he was there back when the Clinton’s and their Arkansas mafia rolled into D.C. in ‘93 (with Janet “from another planet” Reno there as figurehead) and he skedaddled by handing a compliant and clueless Loretta Lynch (another incompetent female figurehead) a dripping bag of poop.
