Dan Bongino Discusses Insufferable “Spy” Debate…

Dan Bongino appears with Lou Dobbs to discuss the insufferable debate over the word “spies”.  Bongino accurately outlines the issues with current FBI Director Christopher Wray and his institutional motives.

.

FBI Director Wray lost all credibility in June of 2018 when he participated in a structured press conference intended to diminish the IG report on the institutional issues with the FBI.   It was then obvious Wray was committed to the institutional cover-up of gross misconduct by former and current DOJ and FBI officials.

At the conclusion of that June 14, 2018, press conference an earlier unscheduled meeting on January 3rd, 2018, between Christopher Wray, Rod Rosenstein and House Speaker Paul Ryan then began to make a lot more sense.

During that January 2018 meeting FBI Director Christopher Wray, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and House Speaker Paul Ryan formed an alliance against HPSCI Chairman Devin Nunes.

January 3rd, 2018 – WASHINGTON DC – Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Chris Wray made an unannounced visit to Speaker Paul Ryan’s office Wednesday as the Justice Department grapples with an increasingly hostile faction of House Republicans demanding documents related to the bureau’s Russia probe.

Rosenstein was spotted entering Ryan’s office, and a spokesman for the speaker confirmed that Rosenstein and Wray had requested the meeting. A second person familiar with the meeting said it was related to a document request issued over the summer by House intelligence committee chairman Devin Nunes. (more)

    I have to say, I support POTUS 100%, but he has made some awful hires. You’d think after Comey, he would have made completely sure to get the next one right. I’m still on the fence about Kavanaugh as well.

      MAGADJT: Food for thought…PDJT knows these people and exactly who they are before he hires them. It just is inconceivable that a billionaire businessman who has spent his entire life assessing people to make deals would not know this. There is a reason he is doing this.

      IMHO, I believe one of the main reasons for a lot of these “awful hires” is to expose the wicked and disloyal and root them out. Because there is so much hubris and ego in the “awful hire,” they will continue their malfeasance because he/she believes they are above the law…thereby sealing their fate.

            Have to agree with you Rynn69, especially since it’s looking like Admiral Mike Rogers told Trump everything right after the election. POTUS has known it all from the beginning and yet has allowed all this to play out. Two years ago everyone mocked Trump when he said he was wiretapped. Now it’s accepted as common knowledge that this, and even more, is exactly what happened. Trump just MAGAs while they chase their collective tale in a TDS -induced frenzy and inadvertently clear him and implicate themselves.

        The report by the U.S. Director of National Intelligence (DNI) said that in 2018 cyber spies at the National Security Agency (NSA) unmasked the identities of 16,721 “U.S. persons”, compared to 9,529 unmaskings in 2017 and 9,217 between September 2015 and August 2016.
        DNI official, said it was likely that the higher number of U.S. persons unmasked last year was inflated by names of victims of malicious cyber activity.

      Thats simple to answer. Trump is not able to vet every single person, and he had zero capacity to really know WHO was a deep state swamp rat. As a very BIG business person he would be a delegator. He would seek expertise of others (who he considers experts in the field) to advise him. The real question on this is to ask ‘WHO’ was advising him to employ these skunks. I think we all know the swamp is a circular and incestuous hell. Wray worked for Comey – and other crooks, he is a lawyer- and has had no experience in what he is doing right now. His talk is lawerly… he is a snake. Same for all of Trumps hires that go awry. He is advised. Seek the advisor. Think Rosenstein hiring Mueller. He was blessed with the hire of Barr (or so it seems at this point). Everyone around him is from the swamp, the question is ‘how filthy’ are they?

      It President Trump was able to hire his own people for most of these positions, without needing Senate Approval, then none of the BS over the past 2.5 years would have occurred. Exactly why the US Senate refuses to go into recess.

Jeff Sessions would have been called a true patriot prior to his service as AG. I used to wait for every George Will column to drop and even asked for an autographed copy of one of his books. Today I would yell, “traitor!” if ever in his presence. Wray was sold as a non-partisan career guy…now we know there is no such thing (paging Peter Strzok, pun intended). Barr is proving to be the real deal. Praise God but don’t let your guard down, President Trump.

      The only other explanation I can arrive at is that President Trump makes hiring decisions based on specific needs (Manafort ability to wrangle delegate votes, etc) with the definite intention to eventually replace them when their task is complete.

          It appears that scattering salt was a symbolic insult, rather than a practical means of preventing future agriculture.

          The most famous story is about Scipio Africanus salting Carthage, but that story was almost certainly invented ~2000 years after the supposed event. Ancient Roman sources do mention the practice in other cases, but contemporary readers would almost certainly take those passages to mean that someone tossed a few handfuls on the ground as an homage to traditions that were nearly as ancient to them as those people are to us.

          Fun salt fact: Our word “salary” comes from “salarium”, which was either money given to soldiers to buy salt, or (less often) salt issued to soldiers. This is the source of the “paid in salt meme”, but it was in addition to their other pay.

          Second fun salt fact: When the Romans conquered Egypt, they reconciled the Egyptian pantheon with the Roman pantheon. Amon Ra was seen as an aspect of Jupiter. Special salt was found near what they called the Temple of Jupiter Amun. This salt was called “Salt of Amun”, which we eventually called sal ammoniac – a chloride of ammonia. ( This really is where we got the word “ammonia”, but it is also fake news from 1940 years ago – the salt that Pliny describes was probably just sea salt. )

      This was a meeting in response to Nunes’ Jan 3 ultimatum to turn over documents and make witnesses available to the HPSCI.
      https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2017/12/28/intelligence-committee-chairman-devin-nunes-gives-doj-until-january-3rd-to-produce-documents/

      Interesting is that Nunes wanted the following folks to testify in early 2018 (Bruce Ohr was actually scheduled, cancelled and never rescheduled)
      “Additionally by the same deadline please provide in writing available dates in January 2018 for interviews with the following officials:
      •Former DOJ Associate Deputy Attorney General Bruce Ohr;
      •FBI Supervisory Special Agent (SSA) Peter Strzok;
      •FBI Attorney James Baker;
      •FBI Attoney Lisa Page
      •FBI Attorey Sally Moyer; and
      •FBI Assistant Director for Congressional Affairs Greg Brower”

      Seems RR and Wray worked with Ryan to get him to convince Nunes to back off these interviews and document requests.

      These interviews didn’t occur in January but much, much later. Nunes seemed to drop the whole matter. I think they lied to Nunes, telling him that these folks were “flipping”.

    I suspect the problem is that so many Republicans have been involved in this scandal, for many years. Obviously McCain, looks like probably Burr, Rubio when it suits him, and undoubtedly scads of others. So Ryan’s hands were always sort of tied unless he were willing to take down his own members. He’s a “company man”, so easier to just retire. So, Rosenstein and Wray used Ryan’s bind to perpetuate their coverup. McCarthy no different than Ryan. That’s how it looks to me anyway. Declassifying is the only road out of this Purgatory. And, like Bongino, I’ve had it at this point. It’s long past time to declassify.

    Dan Bongino is and has been in front of this FBI/CIA debacle for two years. He has it nailed. His podcasts are terrific. Wray is definitely a deep state swamp rat. Bongino’s summation that puts Brennan, and the CIA, squarely at the center of the genesis for this false Trump/Russian narrative is right on the money. We’ve all been so disappointed with the lack of a real investigation and any results into this cabal of rats for almost 3 years now. I only hope AG Barr is the man. So far, to his credit, he has stood up to the low life Dems and the intelligence hacks. After IG Horowitz’ last “investigation” and report I am less than enthusiastic for a true outcome from his office. The swamp is so deep and insidious that it’s an entity unto itself; answerable to no-one and immune from ANY laws.

      So, Comey was duped by Brennan? Is Bongino giving Comey /FBI plausible deniability?

    When the FBI began their “IG review” of the HRC “matter” and Chrissy Wray said that they would “not second guess investigative decisions” I feared that this would be a protect the FBI op. I was right. The very “investigative decisions” demonstrated that the FBI/”justice” conducted the “matter” to protect HRC and anyone who could be leveraged to testify against her. (Paul Combetta, Cheryl Mills, Heather Samuelson, etc, etc.) Makes me want to puke.

    I don’t blame Trump. When you consider all the rats that have tried to destroy him, it is by the grace of god he is beating them.

    The deep state, the “justice department” rats, the demonrats, the rat media, are all in to get Trump. Yet the truth is slowly, too slowly getting out.

    They have declared war on Barr. He is a VERY smart guy. I think he knows it. I hope he also knows he cannot trust most of the “justice” department.
    I believe has the smarts, the education, and the ability. I pray he has the guts and enough honest, if there are any, FBI/Justice to save the country.

    This criticism of Trump’s hires as having often been poor choices is more about trying to find those with experience working in direct application of capitalist policies. Those kinds of people are rare in Washington DC where decades of socialist recruitment from Ivy League Leftist universities has made the pool of available candidates heavily laden with Leftists.

    You cannot fault a successful capitalist businessman for hiring disappointing talent when so many pretend to support his plans while actually ending up stabbing him in the back after they are hired and prove themselves unworthy of his trust. Most of these people are shocked to find how effective Trump’s policy changes have been, so thoroughly brainwashed were they by propaganda so long delivered by the Left.

    The changes President Trump seeks to make are revolutionary by DC standards. He is literally trying to overthrow decades of socialist rot.

    This is not a response to Don Bongino, but a note about a tactic that I just came across here from an East Tennessee newspaper:

    https://www.knoxnews.com/story/news/local/2019/05/08/mueller-report-east-tennessee-former-prosecutors-letter-president-trump-obstruction-justice-impeach

    This Democrat newspaper, Knoxville News-Sentinel has rustled up several former prosecutors (Tom Dillard, Neil Smith, Guy Blackwell) who say that they read the Mueller Report and that there is material in the report for prosecuting the President. Of course they don’t say specifically *what*, just innuendo. All I’m seeing from this report is sedition… I’m not a lawyer, but that’s what it looks like to me

    I’m over my “free articles for the month” limit, but if you feel like giving them a word or two, have at it! One of the former prosecutors is apparently a friend of Mueller. Be careful because Mueller’s people apparently work like gangsters….but you might want to be aware of what they are up to now, for deceiving the lo-info public

There are a hundred indications in the illicit lovers’ emails that indicate they know they were doing something wrong, yet their own guilt didn’t stop them. Kissypoo does not stop people, fear does. The FBI has corrupted, surgery is needed, cut out the disease or shut it down. Thousands of children are abused every week through illegal immigration, patting your own back over 1,600 pedophile cases a year with 35,000 employees is a poor excuse for condoning the political crap that goes on in today’s FBI and CIA.

    AND on Dan’s podcast yesterday he absolutely ranted about “Why no declassifications?!” to end this farce, the same thing I’ve been asking for a long time.

    BTW, I don’t think it’s due to 4D chess at all. It’s much worse – job #1 of everyone involved is to protect the credibility of three letter agencies from OFFICIAL recognition of illegal behavior via documented declassified proof, thereby potentially making previous actions by the same agencies fruit from a poisonous tree, to avoid OFFICIAL recognition via documented declassified proof that Five Eyes/ECHELON is misused intentionally or otherwise as a “you spy on my people and I’ll spy on yours” system, and avoidance of prosecution of the perps directly involved which would lead to a discovery process which would accomplish the same Deep State undesired outcomes related to the three letter agencies and Five Eyes/ECHELON.

    In other words, job #1 is “preserve the corrupt system at all costs.”

    From my research on COINTELPRO, the scandal which produced the FISC/FISA process as a reform measure (how’d that work out?), I cannot find evidence that anyone within the same three letter agencies was ever prosecuted for that scandal either.

    The reason Wray speaks in public like a confused adolescent is because he is walking a tightrope. Yes, he is a tool of the Deep State and is covertly working to undermine the Trump presidency, but one misstep could land him in hot water just like Comey. Trump holds the trump card with declassification, and Wray will look incompetent, if not culpable, when the reality of the attempted coup is exposed. Barr is trying to turn Wray, but that will fail. What happens next will determine if the Good Guys or the Bad Guys prevail. The stakes couldn’t be higher.

Furthermore, we are the ones who fight for better staffing. It’s been PROVEN that patients have better outcomes with better staffing. And where I work, the nurse manager backs us up as much as she can. So, when you’ve figured out what you would say to the family of the beaten patient, I’ll take you seriously. Til then, keep your ignorant opinion to yourself and know you will get the finest care we can give even when understaffed and battling paperwork imposed on us by the government.
