Devin Nunes and Mark Meadows Discuss Corruption Within FBI/DOJ and “New Whistle-blowers” Coming Forward……

HPSCI ranking member Devin Nunes appears with judiciary committee member Mark Meadows to discuss today’s HPSCI hearing, corruption within the DOJ/FBI, and the current NYT story about AG Bill Barr questioning the CIA construct of the 2017 Intelligence Community Assessment.

Notice in Mr. Nunes statements: “corrupt rank and file“? {CURIOUS}; also Fusion GPS and the FBI operating on “parallel tracks“? {CURIOUS x 2}  Additionally, from Rep. Mark Meadows we hear this:

“We are now getting a lot of whistle-blowers” … “people who knew this was wrong are coming forward now” …

.

Also from Nunes, confirmation that Rosenstein’s original scope memo was based on empowering/authorizing Weissmann and Mueller to investigate (ie. ‘utilize’) the dossier manufactured by Fusion GPS, Glenn Simpson, Nellie Ohr and Christopher Steele.

        I do believe that Stefanik is on our side. A white hat.

        I watched the interview of Comey by Stefanik live. Unusual for me – I think that I was home sick that day. I wondered why nobody was calling out Comey for not following procedures because of “the sensitivity of the matter”.

        What a bunch of BS. Comey is psychopath.

          I remember it discussed later, that as a junior person in the committee, Stefanik was one of last members to question Comey, and this question kind of came out of the blue to the rest of the “seasoned” members. They were shocked at the answer by Comey.

          I guess, as usual, Schiffforbrains, was not paying attention, or more probably.. just ignored what they didn’t want to hear. The media did their job by not making an issue of it.

          Don’t think for one minute Barr isn’t asking some questions about this. Time to get rid of Wray, too. Can’t tell me he isn’t bottlenecking everything to protect his previous boss.

            I couldn’t believe how many people either overlooked or completely missed Stefanik’s line of questioning. She clearly had Comey back-peddling on why normal oversight was avoided. McCabe also avoided oversight later. As I’ve written/said a million times: If everything was done correctly and was above-board, why was everyone involved trying to avoid normal oversight? Take this further to NSD head John Carlin not reporting the FISA 702 (FISA data search) abuses that Rogers caught and the Obama administration blocking IG oversight of NSD data for OVER 6 YEARS. Also note that no State Department IG was ever even appointed during Hillary’s entire tenure as Secretary of State. A huge part of “getting away with it” seems to have been to shut off oversight and normal auditing at every possible turn then get one of their own in there to cover it up.

        I’m so hung up on Mifsud getting publicly outed as an Italian intelligence asset being utilized by our FBI/CIA. Mueller’s report called him a Russian source (sp?). The FBI claimed the investigation began when Downer reported that Papadopolous passed along Mifud’s “dirt” comment.

        As late as this morning, the twerps at NPR reported that Trump’s campaign had claimed to have “dirt” on Hillary. I’m sick of hearing it. Getting the truth out on Mifsud will, hopefully, shut that narrative down and go along way towards unravelling this whole media s**t show.

        If I recall correctly, Dan Bongino did explain it. Evidently there was some public event in which President (or President-elect, I’m not certain of the timing) DJT mentioned the names of a few recommendations he had received whom he was considering hiring. I believe PapaD was one of the names. Carter Page may have been another.

        At the time DJT himself knew nothing or little of these people, but because there were so few available, he was taking advice that we now know to be questionable in many ways.

        And in fact there was nothing at all wrong with PapaD – he has turned out to be a fighter whom I admire – but he was an easy target at the time for the swamp.

The inconvenient truth doesn’t interfere with Schiff, he just pretends it didn’t happen. A wife walks in on his husband and mistress having sex and he gets out of bed, dresses …. then when confronted by his wife denies the whole thing…. “are you going to believe me or your lying eyes?” Deny, deny, deny!

        Because Adam has told so many lies, he wouldn’t recognize the truth. Some other committee member during one of his committee “hearings” (if you won’t listen to the other side you can’t possibly HEAR) should just say “Congressman Schiff, you have publicly stated for more than two years that you have positive proof of collusion. Did you offer this proof to Weissmann? Why will you not produce this positive proof to this committee? If you aren’t willing to produce this positive proof, you need to apologize to the American people for misrepresenting the facts.”

    I think maybe there’s some misunderstanding about what a whistleblower is. It’s not someone who, once discovered, agrees to turn over others. It’s someone who rings the bell and sounds the alarm on wrongdoing they are not involved/complicit in.

        You’re right about unlawful spying going on since Hoover…….but Mark Felt was no whistleblowing hero.

        Felt was another opportunistic, law breaking asshole. He leaked info against Nixon because he hated Nixon. He broke laws because he thought he knew what was best for the country.

        He was no different to the current assholes who ran the spy game on Trump.

        There are few, if any, true whistleblowers, the FBI has been indocrinating their people since the beginning. The vast majority of the “rank and file” are liberals who know better than anyone else as to how the country should be run.

            I disagree Conservative_302 and Dutchman. It is a huge excuse. It’s why the Swamp is so foul. I’ve been there, done that with sticking my neck out in gov’t because things were not only wrong, but breaking regulations/laws. Everyone I turned to who knew the truth said the same thing, “I’d come forward but I’m afraid of reprisal”. They’d seen what had been done, what was being done, and crawled under their rock. It isn’t a logical decision, it’s a cowardly and selfish decision that has majorly adverse repercussions on good people. Their actions are why so FEW whistle blowers come forward. So, no, I have absolutely no sympathies for any of them. Had they all come forward when they should have, we’d be in a much better place. They’re complicit in all the crimes. I say throw the book at them and give them the maximum sentence possible. Let all of them be an example to the next generation on what happens when you don’t stand up for what’s right and hide those doing wrong. I was brought up that you do what’s right. In gov’t, it’s the opposite. You don’t upset the apple cart no matter how wrong things are. It’s that pervasive attitude that needs to be removed and you won’t ever do that if you keep making excuses for those covering up wrongdoing and/or not coming forward.

            “There are agents all over this country who love the bureau and are sickened by [James] Comey’s behavior and [Andrew] McCabe and [Eric] Holder and [Loretta] Lynch and the thugs like [John] Brennan–who despise the fact that the bureau was used as a tool of political intelligence by the Obama administration thugs,” former federal prosecutor Joe DiGenova told The Daily Caller Tuesday. “They are just waiting for a chance to come forward and testify……TheDC independently confirmed the veracity of the consultant’s position and access, and reviewed detailed transcripts of his Q&A with the special agent, who requested the arrangement due to internal dragnets and fear of vicious retribution.
            These agents prefer to be subpoenaed to becoming an official government whistleblower, since they fear political and professional backlash, the former Trump administration official explained to TheDC.
            The subpoena is preferred, he said, “because when you are subpoenaed, Congress then pays…for your legal counsel and the subpoena protects [the agent] from any organizational retaliation…. they are on their own as whistleblowers, they get no legal protection and there will be organizational retaliation against them.”
            DiGenova — who along with his wife, Victoria Toensing, has represented government whistleblowers in the past — agreed, telling TheDC, “It’s an intelligent approach to the situation given the vindictive nature of the bureau under Comey and McCabe. I have no idea how to read Chris Wray, who is not a leader and who has disappeared from the public eye during this entire crisis. You know, he may be cleaning house but if he’s doing so, he’s doing it very quietly.”
            He added, “I don’t blame them. I don’t blame the agents one bit. I think that the FBI is in a freefall. James Comey has destroyed the institution he claims to love. And it is beyond a doubt that it is going to take a decade to restore public confidence because of Comey and Clapper and Brennan and Obama and Lynch.”
            The special agent out of WFO alleged that rank and file FBI agents are fed up and desperately want action from the DOJ, according to the transcripts.
            “Every special agent I have spoken to in the Washington Field Office wants to see McCabe prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. They feel the same way about Comey,“ the special agent said, according to transcripts provided to TheDC…. “The administrations are so politicized that any time a Special Agent comes forward as a whistleblower, they can expect to be thrown under the bus by leadership. …The special agent added, “Activity that Congress is investigating is being stonewalled by leadership and rank-and-file FBI employees in the periphery are just doing their jobs. All Congress needs to do is subpoena involved personnel and they will tell you what they know. These are honest people. Leadership cannot stop anyone from responding to a subpoena. Those subpoenaed also get legal counsel provided by the government to represent them.”
            In the meantime, DiGenova and the others who spoke to TheDC believe it is time for Congress to issue subpoenas to FBI agents who are willing to talk. According to DiGenova, the House and Senate Judiciary Committees can issue these subpoenas.
            “Either one of those [committees] would be fine. I’m sure the committees could hold hearings in a New York minute,” he said.
            He added, “I can assure you I’ve been approached by agents who want to be subpoenaed for the same reason the guys in the field,” adding, “All over this country there are agents but the big ones the ones that matter New York–Washington I can assure you I’ve spoken with agents who want to come forward.”

            SO, WHY HAS THE SENATE REFUSED TO SUBPOENA THESE AGENTS?
            Senator Grassley says they are just fine without a subpoena (despite Jeff Sessions’ directive NOT to talk to congress), so the Senate clearly doesn’t want “rank and file” FBI whistleblowers, for some reason:

        Hopefully, there’s some big time signs that it’s safe.

        Things won’t occur until that occurs sometimes. The
        15 year old black kid that cut my mother in law’s grass
        was teased at his all black school. For “acting white”.
        Which meant getting good grades. He finally had it with
        all the teasing, and made arrangements to buy a gun.

        The guy selling the gun took his 75 dollars, started to
        hand the gun to him, changed his mind, and shot him
        dead on the street.

        Everyone in the neighborhood knew exactly who had
        did it. Everyone was also terrified to say anything about
        it. Three years went by, and predictably the shooter wound
        up in jail on another crime. People swarmed out of the
        woodwork after he was safely behind bars. Tons of phone
        calls to the DA’s office. He’s currently serving life.

        Maybe there’s been some big time reassurances, and
        people are talking now. Hopefully, they’ll stay safe.

        When talking about whistleblowers, and calling them “cowards” for not immedietly stepping forward,…I think its important to TRY to look at it from THEIR point of view. Its not only the negative consequences to them, its also the likelyhood that they will put themselves at substantial risk for,…..
        WHAT?
        If the answer is a firm conviction that it will do ABSOLUTELY no good, than logically it makes sense to NOT come forward, keep your head down, and hope for a change in that dynamic, SO THAT at least the risk will have a chance of yielding some tangible benefit.

        While I never would have worked at FBI/DOJ. IF I did, no way I would have come forward while Rosie was running things! It would be pointless!

        By the way, in Bernie’s explanation of the difference between Socialism and Democratic Socialism, did anyone hear a difference? Basically, what I have heard from Bernie (and all the other Democrat candidates) is:
        Healthcare– Control healthcare and you control the people.
        Poverty – Increase the Poverty level as high as possible, poor people are easier to control and will not fight back if you are providing everything for them to live.
        Debt – Increase the debt to an unsustainable level. That way you are able to increase taxes, and this will produce more poverty.
        Gun Control – Remove the ability to defend themselves from the Government. That way you are able to create a police state
        Welfare – Take control of every aspect of their lives. (Food, Housing, and Income)
        Education – Take control of what people read and listen to us“ take control of what children learn in school.
        Religion – Remove the belief in the God from the Government and schools.
        Class Warfare – Divide the people into the wealthy and the poor. This will cause more discontent and it will be easier to take (Tax) the wealthy with the support of the poor.
        Obama started it. Bernie advanced. The 2020 candidates have put it on steroids. If they are successful, we will be full on Socialists (Communists).

      It is totally obvious! Have you never worked at in an organization with a corrupt or evil manager at a high level?

      Any company/organization always claims that you can report wrongdoing without retribution, the complaint is anonymous, etc, but people aren’t stupid. The first time a whistleblower is fired/prosecuted/demoted/punished/ostracised/etc, nobody ever reports anything again.

      HR departments like it that way in big organizations. They want whistleblowers silenced. It makes their lives less stressful. They can gossip all day, leave early to go to the gym, and push cultural marxist initiatives, like they do at companies that I have worked at.

      Every individual has a personal threat level that, when high enough, constrains them from blowing the whistle. When the threat level drops sufficiently, they’ll blow the whistle. There are very few who will blow the whistle when doing so means career death, or death-death. The threat level for some only has to drop a little bit; when they can see that the adults are back in charge, it drops the threat level and become part of the tipping point that resolves criminal situations.

            It’s like he has said this all so much over and over, between 3 hours on radio each day, and his show at night.. that he says whatever comes in his head to fill the time. He. does. not. listen. to his guests. Notice also, he is constantly asking for affirmation of his own worth to those whom he seems to revere. Then tells you how he had been right all along, and he was the only one… yada yada. (Wonder if he ever heard of the Treehouse?)

            If he spent half the time researching new ground or following up on new information, instead of hashing old territory, he could be really making a difference. We need a high profile show that gets the guests to come on to talk. His ratings are high because of that. When he has a guest host like Bongino, who is just as informed, if not more so.. he asks great questions and the guests can really go into detail and actually answer more than one question!

    Great! I show 5 Whistleblowers in the recent past, some not treated so well. #4 is a new one to me; very interesting that he claims MUELLER LAUNCHED AN ILLEGAL SPYING program in 2004?!

    1. Nov 2018, Daily Caller, Dennis Cain. “The FBI raided the home of a whistleblower who was in possession of documents regarding the Clinton Foundation and Uranium One, according to the whistleblower’s lawyer, Michael Socarras.”

    “The whistleblower, Dennis Nathan Cain…” He was a government-approved Whistleblower and they searched his house for 6 hours! Unemployed now, tough times.

    2. Uranium One Whistleblower William Douglas Campbell. Characterized by the Democrats as having nothing of substance in 2017. Long-term insider who wore a wire for our government when dealing with Russians;, kept notes; and received a payment from the FBI for his courageous work.

    His attorney is Victoria Toesing, who says the Democrats made misleading statements and twisted his words. Ms. Toesing claimed several months ago Huber never even interviewed him!

    3. Clinton Foundation IRS Whistleblowers John Moynihan and Larry Doyle. December 2018. The pair believe they have proof of pay-to-play and tens of Millions in unpaid CF taxes. They have turned over their information to the FBI and IRS.

    4. I just ran into this one. Very interesting. Not familiar with the site or track record.

    Former CIA/NSA/DIA subcontractor-turned-whistleblower Dennis Montgomery and his attorney Larry Klayman, claim the FBI (under Mueller) provided “computers to a secret CIA/NSA surveillance program that was launched in 2004. That program morphed into a domestic surveillance program that spied on Donald Trump and his associates.”

    https://www.commdiginews.com/politics-2/cia-whistleblower-muellers-fbi-computers-spied-on-trump-and-scotus-91264/

    5. There is a fifth Whistleblower who hasn’t been identified. I believe he was a long-term government employee. He compiled irregular data, it may have been about Hillary Clinton, and sent a huge packet to the FBI. He never heard back from them.

    Disturbed at no response, he personally went to the FBI with the same packet of information and CDs, and spoke to the specific supervisor in charge of such. (Sorry for being vague, this was maybe 2 years ago.)

    Look up FBI and Whistleblower. There appears to be a pattern of burying people, igniring fheir rights, etc.

      However NONE of these are or were former FBI or DOJ whistleblowers. None are whistleblowers from within the corrupt institutions.
      THAT is troubling and why people are claiming the corruption is not just at the top, but systemic to the organizations. When there should be a fidelity to the rule of law, and NO ONE in those corrupt institutions steps forward to tell what they know from inside of those institutions, then there is only one conclusion that can be made. The so called “rank and file” are either just as corrupt, or they are self serving cowards. Either way, they aren’t patriots loyal to this country or Constitution.

    I believe it is safe to say that the reason that people did not come forward is the corrupt people were their bosses. Now that there is a new AG, they feel safe to come forward.

    I’ve watched over the years what happens to people who blow the whistle on corrupt politicians. They are the ones that get in trouble while the corrupt politicians remain unaffected.

    Just a case in point, when Waco Reno was a FL state attorney in Miami-Dade, two whistle blowers came forward with evidence of vote fraud by the supervisor of elections and their staff. Reno immediately had them arrested and eventually scheduled for prosecution, essentially ruining them. Right before they were to have their day in court and get on the record, Reno dropped the charges and court was cancelled. No one has reported voter fraud by election officials since.

    And of course, we know where Reno ended up, AG for HilLIARy’s first two terms. Bubba was too much of a doper and womanizer to really act as the President.

    So, I can understand why, even when they have smoking gun evidence, like those two people in Miami-Dade, if the people enforcing the law are corrupt, which has become the case, the whistle blower is the victim and the perp(s) walk.

    So, if people are coming forward, it’s because they believe in AG Barr who will prosecute the actual criminals and not the people reporting the crime.

        MAJA,
        Agreed. Also the term ‘mountains of evidence, don’t need investigations, just prosecute!” Indicates emotion over logic, or inexperience with how courts and prosecutions work.

        We “know” a lot of things, from hanging around the treehouse. But, presenting Sundances excellent articles to a jury as ‘evidence’ is like presenting Yahoo article on Steele dossier to FISA court.

        You need ADMISSABLE evidence, under the rules of procedure.

        You have the “Burden of proof”, which is on the Prosecutor. And, he has to prove the case BEYOND A REASONABLE DOUBT, which IS a high standard. It takes time to gather the evidence, that is both confined to that which is admissable, AND will prive the case, beyond a reasonable doubt, making your narrative in a logical, cogent form that,a jury can follow.

        Its not like you just go in, dump “mountains of evidence” in the juries lap, and say “Its ALL there! The defendant is OBVIOUSLY guilty!”, and walk out.

        I understand the impatience. I would like to see a NEW National monument on the Mall; a GALLOWS.”So this NEVER happens, again!”

        But indict and prosecute prematurely, you get your *ss handed to you.

    Nunes gets it right – Fusion GPS and the FBI were on two parallel tracks that later merged.

    This is what everyone gets wrong: thinking that the Steele dossier was part of the original FBI/CIA plan. The Steele dossier was a DNC creation for media consumption. It was never meant to be used as evidence for a FISA warrant, and Carter Page was never meant to be used as the target of said warrant. The FBI using the dossier was an act of shear desperation in a time of shrieking panic.

    The FBI are being mendacious when they claim Steele broke the rules by shopping the dossier to the media. As the state department notes/email show, he’d already been contacting the media before the FBI tried to use the dossier when all their other operations had failed.

    Using Papadopoulos to get the Trump team to chase Hillary’s emails – fail.
    Getting the Italians to plant the emails on the US server of a Trump supporting Italian business man for the FBI to “discover” – fail.
    Letting banned Russians into the US to entrap the Trump team into multiple suspicions meetings at Trump Tower – fail.

    Failure after failure, all the while knowing that if they don’t bring down Trump, what Admiral Rogers has discovered will destroy them. This leads to mad panic and the crazed gamble of judge shopping and using a political smear document to get a FISA warrant against one of their own trusted paid informants. They were able to hold back the truth Admiral Rogers knew for a time, but in buying more time, they ultimately bought more rope.

      As an example. Anyway, October surprises don’t have to ‘hold up’ beyond November.

      I am convinced the Steele dossier was a manufactured October Surprise, and THAT was Steeles motivation; delivering what he had,sold Hillary.

      He TRIED ‘shopping it to media’, and after the Dan Rather Bush military records fiasco, the media,weren’t biting.

      So, he tried shopping it to FBI.”If the media can report ‘the FBI is investigating’, they will print it.

      Seperately, those involved in the ongoing spying are in a panic because of Rogers, and a realisation “Trump” might win, and expose the whole thing.

      So, they “double down on a bad hand” in a desperation move. Carter Page was just ‘a guy I know, that we COULD paint as having Russia contacts. PapaD, we know from spying on him cause of pipeline deal. Etc.

      People upthread have posted about evil HR types
      corrupt bosses. All have stories to share. 12 years ago
      17 coworkers called the corporate hotline at the large,
      multistate company that I worked at.

      The female 2nd in command was that evil, conniving,
      backstabbing. Loved to call full company meetings, and
      fire employees in front of everyone else. The calls failed.
      Spectacularly. Digging was done as to who had done it.
      Worse, the corporate offices backed her to a hilt. She
      had made crazy money for them by chronically
      understaffing. To the point that the place was unsafe

      Anyway, the level to which this alleged person was dispised
      can’t be overstated. If there had been any backing from above
      she’d have been looked into after all the calls. She wound up
      leaving under a cloud 8 years later. Her health was failing, and
      the person that was her boss ( she had outlasted 6) found a
      ton of financial discrepancies. Which the feds would have had
      a field day with.

      Anyway, going back to safety. Going through the players involved,
      two immediately come to mind that would probably be loathsome
      enough to get 17 or more persons to call and complain. If they
      thought that anyone would listen. Between Barr and Durham, I
      think they might sense that someone finally is. They might have
      also crossed paths in the past and figured out that they were
      straight shooters.

      My own short list for the two worst of the worst? The ones that
      are utter assholes to anyone and everyone around them? The
      ones that have never met an individual that they couldn’t try to
      intimidate or shaft in some way, shape or form?

      Weissman, and Carlin.

    In March 2018 the OIG released their investigative results into FBI whistleblower issues. Below are some excerpts from the report and the link for the 4 page release. Their environment hast protected the whistleblower and has resulted in retaliation.

    Procedural Reform Recommendation for the Federal Bureau of Investigation

    During a recent investigation, the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) determined that the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s (FBI) training on whistleblower protections does not provide sufficient guidance to FBI supervisors and managers concerning identifying and responding to potential whistleblowing activity under 5 U.S.C. § 2303 (FBI Whistleblower Statute) and 28 C.F.R. Part 27 (FBI Whistleblower Regulations).

    The Issue

    As the result of an OIG investigation into a whistleblower retaliation complaint filed by an FBI employee in which we substantiated the retaliation claims, the OIG concluded that the training provided by the FBI to its supervisors and managers does not contain sufficient information concerning identifying protected disclosures and responding appropriately from a management perspective. We found that supervisory employees in several FBI offices failed to understand that allegations of wrongdoing by a subordinate employee were potential “protected disclosures” under whistleblower law. We also found that supervisory employees failed to respond appropriately to these protected disclosures because the supervisory employees took personnel actions against the employee for failing to follow the “chain of command” when the employee communicated directly with a high-level supervisor.

    RECOMMENDATION

    Based upon the foregoing, the OIG recommends that the FBI take steps to strengthen the training provided to its supervisors and managers to ensure that management employees recognize that: 1) communications by FBI employees to offices or officials outside of the chain of command may be protected disclosures under 5 U.S.C. § 2303; and 2) penalizing FBI employees for violating the chain of command when they are engaged in protected activity may be a violation of the law.

    It’s one thing to hear a whistleblower but how about Barr and Durham look at some of the hard evidence already sitting in THEIR evidence room?

    1) Weiner Laptop

    2) 47 Hard Drives turned in by Dennis Montgomery comprising of 600,000 pages of gathered information on Americans including judges!

    3) The you have the DNC Server – Why is that not in Barr’s custody? It is evidence in an alleged crime against the President for crying out loud.

    4) The Clinton Server that that 3rd Party IT group supposedly has. Again it is major evidence in an alleged crime and why is it not in Barr’s custody?

    Start by looking at these actual evidence and maybe more whistleblowers will see Barr and Durham mean business and would then come forward.

        The Bernie Bros filed a lawsuit against the DNC, actually there were two. Both took place in Florida. One was settled and the other the Bros lost.

        There is evidence in BOTH Of these cases that should be looked at very carefully and compared to what “Intelligence” came up with. I guarantee you that there is PLENTY of REASONABLE DOUBT that the Russians “did it” on behalf of TRUMP.

        It is WELL KNOWN that the DNC had a real problem with security and people getting into their servers. It was a sieve. I wouldn’t be surprised if the AWAN brothers set it all up and put in a back door.

        Remember the Bernie Bros got in, and then the DNC shut down Bernie’s privileges, even tho’ he allegedly fired the people responsible? That was one of the lawsuits. It hampered Berne’s Team and their ability to do ANY business. That was the one they settled. Bernie and Jane got a new house to keep their mouths shut and not push it. The DIMs didn’t want people to know any more than they already knew. That would be bad for the Russia-Russie-Russia Story.

        The other suit was a class action by Bernie’s supporters that the DNC held their thumb on the scales for ILLary Clinton, thereby shafting Bernie and that it was never a fair contest. They were duped into financing an unfair campaign.

        DNC Lawyers said, So what? We can choose whoever we want to be our candidate, and if we want, we can do it in a smoke filled back room somewhere and it is really none of your business.

        The judge agreed. The DNC won. They CAN choose whoever they want. Anything to the contrary is nothing more than a campaign promise and they cannot be held to it.

        This is the REAL REASON the DIMs and the UNIParty are all so PO’d. It was ILLary’s turn in 2016, and then Jebra! would be next. TRUMP and his band of Merry Deplorables got in the way of all of their Super Delegates, MOSTLY CongressCritters, and mucked up their well laid plan to coronate Queen ILLary.

        Remember, we don’t get to choose, they get to choose. There is now a legal precedent.

        And these cases have evidence of their complete lack of security and more.

      Take it to the bank—the two servers were “sanitized” before they were turned over to anyone. I still say any hacks on Congress/DNC were compliments of DWS and the Awan family. DWS couldn’t let that be violated without exposing how many in Congress, herself included, violated ethics laws by turning over their log in info on governmental servers to an unauthorized agent.

    There is a problem with the Mueller Dossier, glaringly obvious, from your 25 Apr 2019 post (CURIOUS x 2)
    https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2019/04/25/president-obamas-2016-political-surveillance-coverup-had-two-parallel-tracks/

    From the CURIOUS x 2 post –
    Devin Nues – “we think there’s some major irregularities in the State Department, and we’re trying to figure out how this information about Mr. Papadopoulos of all people who was supposedly meeting with some folks in London”

    From the Mueller Dossier – “Papadopoulos suggested to a representative of a foreign government…”
    and, same Mueller Dossier, Footnote 465 – “The foreign government conveyed this information to the U.S. government on July 26, 2016.”

    Whether this PapaD action (conveying info received from Mifsud to Erica Thompson or Alexander Downer) occurred on 6 May 2016 to Erica Thompson or 10 May 2016 to Alexander Downer may be irrelevant. You see, PapaD never told anyone about Mifsud’s “Russian Clinton dirt.”

    Recall Trey Gowdy telling Maria B a couple three weeks ago about the exonerating transcripts that had not yet been released? One of those that would be exonerated is PapaD, as PapaD has insisted several times in several interviews, most recently yesterday with, again, Maria B.

    This entire interview is 9:57, and is worth listening to the entire thing, as Maria B and PapaD present an abbreviated version of PapaD’s story.
    For brevity, start at 9:13. PapaD says again plainly he told NO ONE about the Mifsud gossip.
    PapaD states plainly he had worked at Hudson Institute for several years, and was again working with nothing but professionals, did not spread gossip, and considered this treason.

    The Mueller Dossier has a big (ger?) problem, when those transcripts are released. imo

    • I think that Mr. Papadopoulos was experienced enough to immediately smell a probably-familiar rat, and he easily out-foxed them. First of all, they had planted “e-mails,” which of course are everywhere on the global Internet, but wanted =him= to spread them. Second, they had $10,000.00 in cash, and obviously expected him to simply take it home with him in his luggage.

      Instead, he gave the money to his lawyer, and who knows what else he said to him at that time. Then, he got on the airplane, probably anticipating that “very interesting things” would happen to him when he touched down.

      But one thing that we very clearly see of every one of these conspirators is that they always blithely under-estimated their targets, whether they be Papadopoulos or (especially!) Donald Trump. They have always been so utterly self-confident that they had properly maneuvered their simple-minded (heh …) targets, that they still don’t comprehend “what went wrong with their well-made (heh …) plans.” But the bottom line is: “You were stupid enough to simply assume that you were smarter than everybody else – and, you still are.”

They have one chance to get this right.

      I believe that we must remind ourselves that, “while the wheels of justice turn slowly, they grind exceedingly fine.” We have already seen decisive moves, such as Judge Collyer’s redacted rulng, and we have hard digital evidence brought by [hero …] Adm. Mike Rogers, who executed his role with honor when surrounded by those who had compromised their own honor. Importantly, “this is no longer ‘politics.'”
