    Two interesting and related developments noted upthread. First, 6 Dems lead by Pelosi sent a letter to Barr saying they would NOT look at the ‘less redacted’ Mueller report he proposed providing, withholding only the 6e grand jury stuff he cannot by law provide. Second the strategy call Monday led by Pelosi on next steps after Mueller.
    It looks like TDS has really set in.
    The Dem subpoena for fully unredacted plus underlying grand jury stuff is unlawful and will be quashed; there is no underlying legislative oversight argument. They are setting up a court confrontation they cannot win. They should know that. Why? Only possible answer: an impeachment version of ‘obstruction’ by hiding behind the law and ‘disobeying’ Congress.
    The telecon is likely for coordinating further versions of the same thing ‘disobedience thing’ between Nadler, Schiff, and Cummings. Tax returns, etc. sets up more court fights they cannot win.

    Raises a bigger why do this when they do not hold winning legal hands in the end? in my opinion because they know PDJT and team are about to release the kraken: IG FISA report, declassification, no legit predicate for spying, Nunes conspiracy referrals, indictments. They are gambling on creating an orthogonal MSM impeachment narrative that PDJT admin has been equally in disregard of ‘legislative oversight’ to carry into the election.

      The only entity to keep the illusion going is the media.
      No matter what Team Trump will bring forward publicly.. it will not be enough to make them stop.
      Only airtight indictments of higher ups will wake up their viewers and the uninformed masses.

          I’m waiting for Barr to indict the media participants in this coups – the ones who paid/bribed government employees for confidential info, and then published it with their own spin, citing anonymous sources. If our AG will prosecute some of these people, maybe they will back off for a while and try to behave like humans.

          Amen. I’ve been preaching that the media is the main enemy of anything other than leftist ideas and policies since 2007 when they went all in for the Obama experiment. They couldn’t believe they helped pull that scam off successfully and have been doubling down ever since, especially when DJT came along.

          Take them down a bunch of notches and the Dems have no fuel or mouthpiece to push their anti America agendas. We the People have the power to defeat the leftist media. Just don’t turn them on, read anything in the print media they write, stop clicking on their web sites, cut off their Twitter feeds and don’t like their FB or Instagram social media sites. They might get the message but maybe they will bankrupt themselves too. Better if they fade away. Do it now and make them pay for their lies and antiTrump attacks. Help PT!

        IMO, it’s not about what’s the “smart thing” to do or what’s the best “political strategy”, or whatever… it’s about AVOIDING what very well may be inevitable at this point. The Kraken isn’t so much a terrifying mystical beast that devours villages as it is a Laser-Guided Munition(*) pointing right into Obama’s Oval Office.

      The Law was different then – the Starr Report was released directly to Congress per Law – with the Grand Jury testimony under seal for Rule 6-e.
      Congress sued to get the Grand Jury Testimony and won that lawsuit based on the fact that Congress was in the process of an announced Impeachment and they had a legitimate need for the Testimony.

      Courts have since ruled against releasing 6-e testimony and noted that the only time it’s done is for legitimate “need”. OrangeManBad is not “need”. A ruling for that happened about 10 days ago …. the Dems KNOW the Courts will not give it to them.

    Well, I have to pat myself on the back a little for being prescient about who is really behind the modest surge of Mayor Petey. The neo-cons are getting that feeling up their legs for Petey. Endless war in the middle east is the life purpose of the neo-cons, and it seems Petey is the man they’re hitching their hopes onto.

    As I said two weeks ago, if you want to know what the neo-cons are up to, just listen to Hugh Hewitt’s show for about 10 minutes and you’ll know. The neo-cons know they can’t beat PDJT from within the Republican party, so the new shift is to get a preferred candidate thru the demonrat primaries and challange PDJT in the general election. A sad, pathetic plan, but the neo-cons are a sad, pathetic group.

    Zainab Ahmad, a member of Mueller’s legal team, is the former Assistant United States Attorney in the Eastern District of New York. As pointed out by Blackburn, Ahmad attended a Global Center on Cooperative Security [GCCS] event in 2017. In recent days, Blackburn wrote via Twitter: “Zainab Ahmad is a major player in the Russiagate scandal at the DOJ. Does she work for SC Mueller? She was at a GCCS event in May 2017.

Marin Halper, identified by Feldman as Stefan Halper’s son, is a co-director of the strategic software company MITRE, according to Linkedin.

              According to this Breitbart piece from 2018, Halper has been on the payroll, again if ever not, since 2012:

              “Public records show the longtime federal official was paid a large sum in 2016 for work he undertook during the Obama years.

              The Department of Defense paid Halper $282,295 on September 27, 2016 for work titled, “INDIA AND CHINA ECON STUDY,” says USASPENDING.gov.

              The amount was one of two payments made to Halper for the job; the second, worth $129,280, was made on July 26, 2017. The record marks Halper’s “Period of Performance” as September 26, 2016 to March 29, 2018.

              The government spending tracking website says the Department of Defense paid the foreign policy wonk a total of $1,058,161 for work between 2012-2018.”

      That VDH interview is really good. I enjoyed the entire thing. He covers many areas, is 2016 election….. how Trump is a tragic hero type, Mueller investigation, upcoming election, etc. He goes into deep thoughtful intellectual analysis.

      If your time is limited, I would suggest listening from 35:22 to sample it. Here he talks about where we are with the American spirit and difference between Trump and the progressive left’s world view.

IIRC, only the conservative group had properly filed for and where given a permit for the park, but leftists, including Antifa, had at them literally anyway leading to total mayhem.

    DEEP STATE SPY LOCATED: Fake ‘Russian’ Joseph Mifsud Who Set Up Trump Campaign Volunteer Papadopoulos Located in Rome!

    Maltese professor Joseph Mifsud was used to tie George Papadopoulos to Russia by the Mueller team and their mainstream media. After he was interviewed by the Mueller team he went missing. Two days ago he was finally located in Rome next to the US embassy. It’s time to ask him who he was working for.

    Stefan Halper played a role in the establishment of the Trump-Russia Investigation.

    But let’s be clear.

    Halper wasn’t “inside” the Trump Campaign. Halper used intentionally manufactured meetings and contacts with Papadopoulos and Page to create perceived associations with Russia.

    Ultimately, this appears to be a coordinated effort between British and U.S. Intelligence. Halper was just one of many pieces. Joseph Mifsud was likely a similar piece.

    In my opinion, it’s Sir Richard Dearlove who should be receiving the closest look.

    Dearlove – the former Head of MI6 – appears to be the one constant in the overseas connections. As far as I can tell, he knows every single player.

    It was Dearlove who advised Christopher Steele and his partner Chris Burrows to work with a top British government official to pass along information to the FBI:

The HSC and NSC each continue to exist by statute as bodies supporting the President.[3] The name of the staff organization was changed back to National Security Council Staff in 2014.[4]”

He served as a Lieutenant Colonel in U.S. Army, where he was a senior intelligence officer (and applies his extensive knowledge of REQUIRED intel operation procedures in this video). Today he’s also a member of the Trump 2020 advisory board.”

Her much later email could be interpreted to imply that he may have only learned about the operation long after it began. “I am shocked, shocked…!”

        Mr. Shaffer also points out how this was almost certainly an information deception operation by the Russians to disrupt our political process, our political culture, and any remaining confidence in various 3 letter agencies, an operation in which they were incredibly successful and were actually PAID FOR by the DNC and Clintons.

          What we’re starting to hear, I think, is that the surveillance abuses in question started well before 2016 (in general, of course, but specifically wrt. Trump). Tapping into NSA databases, Mary Jacoby bringing her sleeping bag to the White House, etc. etc. The totality of what we’re talking about doesn’t “just happen”. It takes planning and coordination, even if said planning and coordination is not very well executed.

          Here’s the thing: it’d be one thing if it was “not like Obama” to oversee a surveillance abuse fiasco like this. In reality: it is EXACTLY like Obama to oversee a surveillance abuse fiasco like this. And, ironically, everyone in the MSM knows it… they just don’t want to tell you that they know it.

            Last I heard from Dan Bongino, probably 2015. Mr. Shaffer said that he believes this sort of illegal behavior is probably nothing totally new. He believes the politicization of the DOJ/FBI at high levels began in the Clinton era when the trend of placing lawyers who had never been field agents at the highest levels of the FBI began.

    Said background data must be disclosed via National Television, Radio and Internet. INCLUDING full tax returns for the past 10+ years. If said Congress Member has been in Congress for greater than 10 years then we require a Tax Return investigation for their entire term PLUS the previous 10 years before their term!

    Fair is Fair and furthermore, the full cost of such investigation(s) shall be burdened by the Congressional Member and/or their Political Party affiliation…”donors” will also require disclosure.

    This New Rule should eliminate all of the degenerates plaguing our Nation who pretend to “Represent” the people. It would also expose numerous criminal actions and prohibit new criminals from entering the Political Lottery-of-Wealth accumulation…

      Mike Huckabee Slams Mitt Romney: ‘Makes Me Sick’ You Could Have Been President

      Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee is not at all pleased with Utah Sen. Mitt Romney’s constant attacks on President Donald Trump and even said he is sickened by the idea that Romney could have become President of the United States.

      Romney once again lashed out at President Trump in a statement on Friday, reacting to the Robert Mueller report. Romney stated that he is “sickened” by the level of dishonesty from Trump’s administration. Huckabee, however, was “sick” about something else, MSN reported.

      “Know what makes me sick, Mitt? Not how disingenuous you were to take @realDonaldTrump $$ and then 4 yrs later jealously trash him & then love him again when you begged to be Sec of State, but makes me sick that you got GOP nomination and could have been @POTUS,” Huckabee wrote in a tweet on Friday.

        Then his aligned-Religion and home ownership apparently makes him a Utah Senator – to disrespect the other States with jealous jabs at OUR President Trump.

If Simpson was paying for Steele’s operational expenses, it would seem unlikely that he would not know where he was flying and whom he was meeting with. Although the FBI had previously paid Christopher Steele, they did not pay him in 2016. It remains unclear whether he received payments from other state actors.
