    https://ijr.com/mike-lee-disagrees-mitt-romney-mueller-report/ Good for Mike Lee There’s nothing in this report that changes my view of this president. I don’t think most Americans, I don’t think most senators, most members of Congress, I don’t think most Americans will have their view of the President of the United States changed by this report. There’s just nothing in there that should do that.”

    • Then citizen Trump deferred to Romney to go against a very beatable 0-bama in 2012 and the world watched as Mitt rolled over and played dead in the homestretch.

      Romney will never be president, but if he still wants to give it a shot, he should STFU, wait his turn and not try to undermine a man whose shoes he is not fit to shine.

        Did he roll over and play dead or did the FBI spy on him and uncover/threaten him? Remember the spying went back 6 years which covers the time that Romney was running for president.

        Among other things, he’s pathologically deluded into thinking the party will turn to him to save themselves from Trump. He still sees himself as the “moderate” savior.

        I always thought he was pathetic, the Herman Munster of American politics. If anybody remembers, he’s been collapsing under pressure for ages, going back to a critical debate with Ted Kennedy. He folded like a cheap lawn chair debating McCain and Huckabee. But after Trump appeared on the scene, I saw a passive-aggressive vindictiveness. I think he’s one sick POS.

          He’s a bit like an idiot savant. Clearly a ruthlessly bright businessman, but completely out of touch with real people. Combine that with perhaps some underlying personality disorders (narcissism?), and you have a guy who probably actually believes that he’s a martyr and savior. Yes, he is SICK, and dangerous.

        IMO only, I think Romney was made to run as senator, he couldn’t win in Mass, so Utah, with the belief that Trump would be gone, and he would step up to run.

    I have been cautious about what exactly Admiral Rogers visit to Trump Tower was for. Did he really relay some important info? I haven’t seen Rogers go out of his way on any future events. Still staying open minded about his part played in all of this.

    Snip from AP story today.

    “WASHINGTON — Two months before special counsel Robert Mueller was appointed in the spring of 2017, President Donald Trump picked up the phone and called the head of the largest U.S. intelligence agency. Trump told Mike Rogers, director of the National Security Agency, that news stories alleging that Trump’s 2016 White House campaign had ties to Russia were false and the president asked whether Rogers could do anything to counter them.

    Rogers and his deputy Richard Ledgett, who was present for the call, were taken aback.

    Afterward, Ledgett wrote a memo about the conversation and Trump’s request. He and Rogers signed it and stashed it in a safe. Ledgett said it was the “most unusual thing he had experienced in 40 years of government service.”

    Trump’s outreach to Rogers, who retired last year, and other top intelligence officials stands in sharp contrast to his public, combative stance toward his intelligence agencies. At the time of the call, Trump was just some 60 days into his presidency, but he already had managed to alienate large parts of the intelligence apparatus with comments denigrating the profession.”

      I have as well, been leery of Mike Rogers. Good for President Trump calling them up… he figured the big spy group could help him out. 😍


    • Lulu says:

      You don’t rise to the level Rogers did in the military and definitely not intelligence unless you are political and morally compromised.


      • Dutchman says:

        Hetes the thing; Adm. Rogers was the head of an inteligence organidation.
        He retired. He hasn’t said much publicly.
        Comey, Brennan and Clapper have been all over the news, with Comey writing a book, the other two employeed by news organisations.

        And yet, we hear NOTHING from Rogers. Is he just following an old, out of date tradition, that the others have discarded? If he is a “white hat” why isn’t he coming out publically, to decry this outrage? We believe, with the infomation he has, that he could single handedly blow this whole thing wide open.

        We think he clued DJT in, on the fact he was being spied on. But, what did Rogers tell DJT? Was he just covering his ass, and telling DJT the minimum he had to, to accomplish that purpose, or did he lay it all out?

        We don’t know, seems to me. One more, in a long list of unanswered questions.


    • Arrest Soros says:

      We know the Trump campaign moved headquarters the day after the Rogers visit, so most likely that Rogers told Trump of the surveillance.
      However I concur with LBB’s suspicions about Rogers.
      I put myself in Rogers shoes (a long serving patriot). I find out deep staters are usurping the Republic. WHY WOULD I RETIRE RIGHT IN THE MIDST OF THE REPUBLIC BEING IRREPARABLY DAMAGED?

      I always thought that Rogers didn’t much like Trump. Be that as it may, a true patriot would have stayed in the job (he had a big advantage over any new replacement) to protect THE OFFICE OF POTUS and the Republic.

      I’ve seen many social media and blog entries claiming Rogers is a hero to the Republic. I disagree because no hero to the Republic cuts and runs in the midst of the fight.
      I suspect President Trump feels the same way as I do. Have you noticed PDJT has never mentioned Rogers since Rogers left office?
      The Donald J Trump I know (from a far) doesn’t like those who cut and run from the fight.

    We know the FBI paid Steele. The question is WHY.

    To secure Steele under FBI control and keep Steele quiet? [NDA]

    To protect “sources and methods”?

    As @TheLastRefuge2 wrote, to cross the dossier/Steele from “opposition research” to official channels?


    Well here is another guess.

    Wasn’t Steele granted access to NSA systems as a contractor? If so, in his line of work that would have been valuable and he would have paid, but whom? Perhaps the FBI payments to him were laundered skims. IE, FBI pays Steele, and Steele rebates it and perhaps more back to the right palm.

    Just guessing.


  6. covfefe999 says:

    Now that the Mueller witch hunt is done, does Trump have access to all info? Can he see the unredacted full set of Strzok-Page texts? I wish someone would leak those things. I’ll bet they’re very enlightening. They’d probably fill in a lot of gaps in our knowledge.


    • Dutchman says:

      The indications we have are that he hasn’t seen ANY of the requested classified info. I believe that has been confirmed by several sources, and the reason was to avoid even the appearance of impropriety.

      One would think, now that the Mueller report is out, that he could, or could have Rudy look it over, but thats speculation.

      This is why the Dems are only hinting at impeachment, and some of the lessers are calling for it, but they haven’t announced it. I think they never will because they’ll be in agreement with Dershowitz. But as usual they’ll string along their libtard base, though they can’t do it long enough to impact the 2020 election. The timing of the end of Mueller could hardly have been better. 🙂

        It would be political suicide for them to try to impeach, first they would be alone, no repub. house or senate would join in, Mitch is running for reelection in Ky, he could kiss that goodbye. They will use this as a campaign theme.


      • LBB says:

        I am starting to think Dems know impeachment will fail without enough basis and public support. Now the newer word is PDJT can be prosecuted when he is out of office.

        I agree with SD. Whatever arsenal white hats have to reveal the truth, needs to be unrolled in fairly short order. If they are waiting on Horowitz report (especially for declassifying some docs) , 4 wks seems like a late start. Hoping for other things that can drop until then.

      Brian Williams claimed to have seen a dead body floating down Canal Street in N.O. from his hotel room after a hurricane, but proof showed that water at that location never got more than a couple of inches deep. That’s why he comes on at 11:00 at night on a channel nobody watches at 11:00 at night.

      And, being the consummate hypocrite, he has the temerity to call someone else “Bagdad Bob”.

      Liberals are nothing if not hypocrites.

  11. Dutchman says:

    IF the long term goal of the coupists, their IDEOLOGICAL bent, is to destroy America,…
    IF they are ‘hard core’ marxist/globalists, then they may well be percieving that TRIALS is a ‘win’ for them.
    They will ask for seperate trials, and get them if the charge is not “conspiracy”.
    In which case they can present the Some Other Guy defence.
    In addition they have the ‘We were doing our jobs, what would you have us do?” And most destructive the “Political prosecution” defence.

    Such defences MAY be effective with juries, having to decide based on “Reasonable Doubt”, but even if they are found guilty, such defences, in the ‘Court of Public Opinion’ will be touted, 24/7, by the media, and resonate, perpetuating TDS in the masses so afflicted.
    In short, think of the division caused by the O.J. trial, ×1000.
    Civil war becomes a real possibility if not certainty.

    I can’t help but think that a nellie or stroxz would walk, head held high, up the 13 steps, if they could hear American tearing it apart as they climbed the steps.

    If they get TRIALS, they win.
    Therefore, the only way they can be charged, is if there is such OVERWHELMING evidence of their guilt, that any attempt at defence is totally refuted by the ADMISSABLE evidence.
    In short, ‘we’ not only don’t want, but can not have, TRIALS.
    GUILTY pleas, with statements agknowledging guilt, is the only acceptable outcome.
    So, no charge, they win. Charge with trials, they win. Charge with guilty pleas, we win. Not great odds, but at least there is a chance.

    Someone should let the President from Queens, New York, know there is a Teletubbies joke, someplace about, Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.). … Maybe a clever person could write one. …. A man that emerged victorious in a match with Vince McMahon of World Wide Wrestling fame, might be willing to tell a Teletubbies joke about Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.).

    The growing partnership between Russia’s government and cybercriminals
    An Obama administration national security official(John Carlin) tells 60 Minutes, “Increasingly, you cannot tell which is which when it comes to the criminal and the intelligence agency.”

    John Carlin: What you’re seeing is one of the world’s most sophisticated intelligence operations when it comes to cyber espionage using the criminal groups for their intelligence ends and protecting them from law enforcement.

    John Carlin, the assistant attorney general for national security during the Obama administration, echoes what current U.S. Officials have confirmed to us about the Russians.

    Obama’s Campaign Paid $972,000 To Law Firm That Secretly Paid Fusion GPS In 2016

    Since April of 2016, Obama’s campaign organization has paid nearly a million dollars to the law firm that funneled money to Fusion GPS to compile a dossier of unverified allegations against Donald Trump.
    OCTOBER 29, 2017 By Sean Davis

    Former president Barack Obama’s official campaign organization has directed nearly a million dollars to the same law firm that funneled money to Fusion GPS, the firm behind the infamous Steele dossier. Since April of 2016, Obama For America (OFA) has paid over $972,000 to Perkins Coie, records filed with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) show.

    High level British connection to Nellie and Bruce Ohr. The British crown prosecutor, another top attorney, and the security detail dined with the Ohrs. This was at the Ohrs house, not at a restaurant. The meeting did not meet protocol. This should have been a meeting with Sally Yates, but apparently Sally Yates was not even informed.

    I don’t know much about the people behind this video. Every time it starts to sound like the tinfoil is strong, what they say next makes sense.
