The DC Cover-up That's As Big As Spygate…

Former U.S. Attorney for DC, Jessie Liu, is scheduled for a Senate confirmation hearing this upcoming Thursday at 10:00am.  There’s also an unreported background story connected to the DOJ, Rod Rosenstein and Ms. Liu so controversial, it’s as big as Spygate.
In the event any Senator on the approval committee would be brave enough to question the participant here’s the story:

EVENT ONE – On February 9th, 2018, the media reported on text messages from 2017 between Senate Intelligence Committee Vice-Chairman Mark Warner and Chris Steele’s lawyer, a lobbyist named Adam Waldman.  In 2017 and 2018 Mr. Waldman represented the interests of dossier author Chris Steele and Russian Billionaire Oleg Deripaska.
There was some initial media discussion of the text messages, and some eyebrows raised over why the Vice-Chairman of the SSCI would make statements saying “he would rather not have a paper trail” around the Steele communication, but generally speaking the DC media dropped the story quickly.  It just didn’t fit the anti-Trump narrative in early 2018.
Unfortunately, because of the lack of media curiosity some rather elementary questions were never asked (let alone answered).  Questions including: •Why were the 2017 text messages between Mark Warner and Adam Waldman captured?  •Who captured them?.. and, perhaps more importantly: •why were they released?
The February 2018 story soon disappeared, and no-one ever paid enough attention to go back and see the answers to the questions….
We did.

EVENT TWO – Four months after the Mark Warner texts were made public, on June 8th, 2018, another headline story surfaced.  An indictment for Senate Select Committee on Intelligence Security Director James Wolfe was unsealed on June 7th, 2018.

Mr. Wolfe was indicted for leaking information from within the SSCI to four journalists; and lying to FBI investigators.
Within the indictment we discover the FBI were conducting an ongoing leak investigation throughout 2017.  Within that investigation a top-secret document was transferred to the custody of SSCI Security Director James Wolfe on March 17, 2017.  The details inside that document were leaked to the media.
The indictment describes FBI investigators informing Mr. Wolfe in October of 2017 about their investigation of national security leaks.  In December of 2017 Mr. Wolfe was confronted with evidence of his leaking to journalists including a woman now working for the New York Times named Ali Watkins, with whom he was having a sexual relationship – implied as a possible quid-pro-quo.
Wolfe left the SSCI quietly in mid-December and resigned shortly thereafter.   No-one, outside of the principle characters involved, knows about the investigation until six months later, June 2018, when the indictment is made public.  [Keep this in mind]
The June 2018 media coverage of the Wolfe indictment primarily focused on the affair with Ms. Watkins and Wolfe’s lying to investigators.   Headlines quickly disappeared as the case moved into the formality of legal proceedings between the DOJ and Wolfe’s defense.
No-one drew a connection between the February ’18 publicity of SSCI Vice-Chairman Warner’s text messages and the June ’18 release of the FBI investigation of Wolfe from inside the SSCI the prior year (2017).
EVENT THREE – Slightly less than two months after release of the Wolfe indictment, another headline story.  On July 21st, 2018, the DOJ/FBI declassified and publicly released the FISA application(s) used against former Trump campaign advisor Carter Page.
The release was connected to a FOIA case filed by the New York Times the year prior [NOTE THIS].  There has never been a good explanation why the application was declassified and released.  Despite the pre-existing NYT FOIA case, it never made sense why the DOJ/FBI did not attempt to deny the FOIA request.  The request was a FOIA for FISA information, the highest security classification possible.  It would have been very easy to deny the FOIA simply because the NYT was seeking classified documents.  A no brainer for shielding any release.  FISA is classified “Top-Secret”.
So, given the nature of the FISA application itself; and considering the DOJ had denied a similar request from congress; why did the DOJ/FBI suddenly decide it was okay to release the FISA application to the public?
[Short Answer (ah-ha moment): The DOJ/FBI knew the New York Times already had it.]
The media discussion of the FISA application release was very heavy.  The story consumed a great deal of air time, print coverage and debate from the release on July 21st, 2018, all the way through to the Inspector General Horowitz report of December 2019, and that coverage continues through today.   However, just like the Warner Texts; and just like the Wolfe indictment; no-one bothered to go back and connect the three component stories.
♦ Within the Wolfe indictment you’ll notice the “Top Secret” document picked-up by SSCI Director James Wolfe took place on March 17th, 2017:

♦ Within the Mark Warner text messages you’ll note the SSCI Vice-Chairman went into the SSCI Secured Compartmented Information Facility (SCIF) on March 17th, 2017, shortly after 4:00pm:
♦ Within the declassified and released FISA application you’ll notice the copy date from the FISA clerk for the FISA application was March 17th, 2017:

The information within the three events (Warner Text release, Wolfe Indictment release, and Carter Page FISA release) shows the connection of the events.  James Wolfe took custody of the Carter Page FISA, delivered it to the SCIF, it was reviewed by SSCI Vice-Chair Mark Warner, and then leaked by James Wolfe.

It was the Carter Page FISA application that James Wolfe leaked to Ali Watkins as outlined within the unsealed June 2018 indictment.

Sidebar, a fourth albeit buried public release in December 14th 2018 confirmed everything.  The FBI filed a sentencing recommendation proving it was the Carter Page FISA that was leaked:

I only share the sidebar (out of chronological sequence) to emphasize there is no doubt it was the FISA application that James Wolfe leaked.  (Don’t get hung up here).

This explains (slightly, but there’s a much bigger story) why the DOJ/FBI released the FISA application in July 2018, as the result of a New York Times FOIA request.
The investigators within the DOJ/FBI knew the New York Times already had the FISA application from the James Wolfe leak to journalist Ali Watkins.
It’s going to get complex and I’m likely to lose all except the most dedicated readers who can understand what comes next…..
Keep in mind when the FISA court released the application copy to Wolfe on March 17th, 2017, there was only the original application from October 21st, 2016, and one renewal from January that existed.  [The release was March 17th, 2017 – the April and June 2017 renewals had not taken place.]
Additionally, within the July 2018 public release (of the March 17th 2017 copy), the FBI investigators redacted all dates relating to the copy they released to Wolfe.  AND, in all subsequent releases of any information from the FBI -through the declassification process- (including the initial version of the IG report on FISA) those dates were always redacted.
There has purposefully never been a clean copy release of the original FISA application and the three renewals.  Therefore there has never been a clean copy release without date redactions – which includes the FISC copy dated March 17th.
When the DOJ/FBI released their July 2018 FOIA compliant set of FISA application(s) they didn’t just print a new copy, instead they re-released the Wolfe version and then added the last two renewals.
RECAP Chronology:  February 2018 release of Warner Texts.  June 2018 unsealed Wolfe Indictment.  July 2018 release FISA application.  All three of these releases are connected to one much larger story.
Knowing that James Wolfe was caught by the FBI and DOJ leaking the FISA application, why wasn’t the SSCI Security Director ever charged with leaking classified information?
Here’s where the poop hits the fan.
Here’s the cover-up.
Here’s where another event comes in.
Keep in mind SSCI Vice-Chairman Senator Mark Warner was the impetus for the FISA Court releasing the March 17th copy; also keep in mind the purpose of the text messages between Senator Warner and Chris Steele’s lawyer Adam Waldman.
During his initial summer and fall negotiations with the DOJ, James Wolfe threatened to subpoena the SSCI in his defense.  The implication was that Wolfe was directed to leak the FISA by members of the committee; and/or Wolfe was operating independently but under the assumption of alignment with SSCI members who were not adverse to Wolfe’s leak.
The investigation of Wolfe (October through December 2017) explains how and why the Warner text messages surfaced in Feb 2018.  It’s highly likely Warner’s communication with Waldman was intercepted by FBI investigators who then questioned the Vice-Chairman about those texts.  Or it’s possible/probable the FBI investigators asked Warner if he was aware of Wolfe’s leaks.
That investigative scenario prompted Senator Warner to attempt to get out in front of the story about his secret and covert communication efforts to contact and meet with Christopher Steele.  Thus in February 2018 the Warner texts hit the media.  The texts go from February 2017 though May 2017 [SEE HERE] and encompass the exact period when Wolfe leaked the FISA application – March 2017 (with April discussion).
As the Wolfe defense team discussions with the DOJ played out throughout the fall of 2018, there was little movement. Then came another event, the November 2018 mid-term election where Democrats took control over the House.
Meanwhile, in the lame-duck congressional period Senators on the SSCI asked the DOJ to go easy on Wolfe:

Immediately after the 2018 mid-terms DC Attorney Jessie Liu dropped most of the charges against Wolfe, and he was allowed -under a plea agreement- to plead guilty to only one count of lying to investigators.
December 11th, DOJ sentencing memo [HERE], and then a very pissed-off FBI follow-up within the DOJ response to the Defense sentencing memo [HERE] dated December 14th.
In essence, after the November election, SSCI Director Wolfe was allowed to avoid prosecution for leaking top-secret classified documents; and the bigger issue was covered-up.
DAG Rod Rosenstein was in charge; the Mueller investigation was ongoing; and DC U.S. Attorney Jessie Liu signed-off on the plea deal.

OPPORTUNITY – Ms. Jessie Liu is scheduled for her confirmation hearing on Thursday at 10:00am.  Ms. Liu will be under oath.  If any Senator on that committee is brave enough, they would ask:

♦ Did the DOJ or FBI have evidence that SSCI Security Director James Wolfe leaked the Carter Page FISA application to the media?

We know the honest answer is yes.
The next follow up:

♦ Why was James Wolfe not prosecuted for that leak of classified information?

And then things would get really interesting… Consider the ramifications.
An honest answer would prove the media lied for 18 months about the content of the FISA application. They’ve had it since March 2017. That’s how the New York Times knew to FOIA it. That’s why the New York Times filed the FOIA, to use it more openly.
An honest answer would prove the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (SSCI) was a participating entity in the coup effort.
An honest answer would explain why the SSCI would only approve of nominees who would not expose their activity. Remember, the CIA, FBI, DOJ, ODNI, DNI, etc. all require confirmation from the SSCI (including Chair and Vice-Chair); and the answer would highlight SSCI members were engaged in a seditious conspiracy against the office of the presidency.
An honest answer would explain how Vice-Chairman Mark Warner’s text messages surfaced. Mark Warner entered the dragnet of the FBI investigation of James Wolfe…. and he was questioned by the FBI about his text messages. THAT is why Warner got out in front of them.
An honest answer would also explain why former DOJ-NSD lawyer Michael Atkinson was recommended to become Intelligence Community Inspector General…. And why the SSCI approved. An honest answer would explain why ICIG Atkinson participated in the second soft-coup effort via the “whistle-blower.”
An honest answer would explain the unique nature of all the interests in/around Adam Schiff, Mark Warner, the House intel committee, the SSCI, the DOJ-NSD… Almost everything reconciles within the sunlight of an honest answer.
An honest answer would highlight several members of the 2016 U.S intel community oversight known as the “gang of eight” were participating in a covert effort against candidate Trump; and how some of the current Go8 members have legal exposure.
The ramifications are far reaching:

  • Who was Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein and DC Attorney Jessie Liu protecting?
  • What institutional interests did Rod Rosenstein and Jessie Liu consider too stunning, too damaging, too overwhelming, to confront in their decision to allow such a weak plea contrast against such severe criminal conduct?
  • Is it even possible for the United States Dept. of Justice to conduct a trial where members of the Gang of Eight were implicated in the activity?
  • How could the institutions of the United States government survive the publicity of members within the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence conspiring with foreign and domestic actors to eliminate the President of the United States?
  • How could the highest and most widely recognized U.S. media institutions (NYT, WaPo, CNN and more) survive exposure within that same trial.  The media caught participating in a government effort (receiving leaked classified information) intended to eliminate the presidency of Donald John Trump?

The downstream consequences are quite dramatic. The answer to those questions could create an explosion strong enough to split the atom within the swamp.

      Damn, Sundance, you’re good, excellent job.

    • Anyone tired of the “winning” yet? /s

      • dow40kby2024 says:

        Any Senator who asks those two questions of Liu and doesnt stop until they get the answer is doing the right thing in my book. How does a person/group/entity pressure a Senator to ask those questions? The President, COS, or White House attorneys need to act on this with some pressure to the right Senator(s). Justice is lost and crimes are “covered up” by corrupted Senators if these questions are not asked. They are all guilty of covering up those crimes if those questions are not asked and answered. Warner needs to resign, Liu needs to either withdraw or come clean with the answer or both before a vote is taken. Who is going to be a hero or who is going to remain a zero? This is BIGGGGGGGGLY important………

        • fragemall says:

          Any senator that asks those two questions will go down in history. They will leave a legacy that money can’t buy. Step Up!

        • Dow, there is NO right senator.
          Want to know how I know this?
          Not One recess appointment by our PRESIDENT. It would only take one Senator to make recess appointments happen.
          They are not taking care of us , even when they do something that makes it appear they are. They are actually taking care of themselves.
          They all cover for each other.

          • KJinCton says:

            Bambamtakethat, I’ve looked into the recess appointment conundrum and I can’t see how one Senator can stop the current situation. They are executing a Pro Forma recess, which essentially means one Senator is designated to be in Washington to quickly gavel in and gavel out the Senate during what would normally be a traditional recess.
            That one senator has to be on board with blocking the President, so they aren’t going to pick someone not on the “team” to do the job.
            I researched and tried to see how one other senator could block the process, but I could not find anything that detailed how it would work. There definitely may be a parliamentary process where an opposing senator can make a motion, but that still doesn’t make sense to me…because they would of course be in session during all of this, which voids the recess appointment option.
            If anyone has seen an article that details how one senator can stop this, please point me to it because I want to understand.

        • Fubu says:

          Make note to self: Don’t ever do anything that gets Sundance on the case as he will piece it together and expose your corrupt BS.
          Well done Sundance, investigator extraordinaire. You are definitely the man.

          • magakathryn says:

            Sundance (and his “misfits”) need to fix the lies in this reporting. It was NOT the New York Times FOIA request that revealed Carter Page’s FISAs. It was Bradley Moss & Mark Zaid of the JMadisonProject – Sundance KNOWS this, yet he is lying about it. WHY?

        • Issy says:

          Liu should not be confirmed to anything. I looked at the list of committee members, and ask how could they not know? We know they do, but I have little faith they will do the right thing. Protecting the institutions and the corrupt people in them seems to be everyone’s top priority.

    • magakathryn says:

      No, lies and disinformation by Sundance. It was NOT the New York Times that, via FOIA, got Carter Page’s 4 FISAs released. It was Bradley Moss & Mark Zaid of JMadisonProject that did the FOIA. Why is Sundance (Mark Bradman) lying about this? Search on Twitter if you don’t believe me. Absolutely disgusting that he lies to his “Treepers” and spews this false information.

  1. starfcker says:

    They won’t ask, but it matters not. These are questions for the Department of Justice to be asking Ms. Liu under oath. In front of a grand jury. Mr. President, the Department of Justice is an executive branch department. The Attorney General is a member of your cabinet. You reprised the story of the snake the other day. Best way to kill a snake is to cut off the head. America can’t be great again until this snake gets its head cut off. Our Florida Senator Rick Scott had a slogan when he was running for governor 9 years ago. Right to the point and easily understood by everybody. ” Let’s get to work.”

    • Herbert Kroll says:

      A complete list of enemies would make a long, long read. Then there are the frenemies and then you have all the people who have been deceived, who believe at least parts of the Democrat fairy tale.
      It would be utterly foolish to go in beserker-style. To kill the beast, to preserve our freedom, we will need a perfect strategy, a true master plan.
      And patience too. Lots of it.

    • Mike says:

      Problem here is Nunes asked questions and it took an ethics investigation against him, Mueller / Ukraine investigations and impeachment inquiry to get to the truth.
      Ask questions offered by Sundance and we jump into another rabbit hole. Bottom line is ALL three branches of government conspired to end Trump and the 4 year slow walk of justice is to preserve the US government assault on its citizens.

  2. Seneca the Elder says:

    Brilliant work. Once again, Sundance is the voice crying out in the wilderness.
    Surely there must be at least one honest member who would ask at least one honest question of the nefarious Ms. Liu.
    Last night at the rally, our President Trump said he had no idea when he started to drain it, how deep the Swamp was. I guess we are all finding out on a daily basis.

    • Linda K. says:

      Who will be questioning her?

    • mike says:

      A proverbial Sodom and Gomorrah.
      DC should be on the lookout for a fast, large meteor appearing out of nowhere…
      And good riddance.

    • Les Deek says:

      Amazing person, Sundance is. Untangling the tangled web, when they set out to deceive.
      But, an aside to his ultra-complex unraveling is that here’s another self inflicted wound PT incurred from “his” DOJ. The malleable Jesse Liu was nominated to be US Atty for D.C. by guess who?
      After that she was no longer a career Swamp rat, she is a rat from the ever expanding Trump Swamp, swimming with his others–Barr, Wrey, Rosy, and on and on there; and in the WH–Kelly, McMaster, Bolton, on and on; and Exec branch– Kirstjen Nielsen, Kevin McAleenan, ICIG Atkinson, on and on.
      Dear PT: Love ya, but getting tiring listening to your “Drain the Swamp” shtick. You’ve restocked more then you drained.

    • Issy says:

      We have known about the SSIC and the Wolfe pea deal for a long time. I have remained neutral about Barr, but reading about Timothy Shea, the new D.C. Attorney Barr just appointed to replace Liu, and his sentencing recommendation for Roger Stone is just too much.
      Barr is doing nothing to stop the injustices of the illegal Mueller investigation that entrapped people. I had thought maybe he had to allow the cases to play out to preserve some semblance of order, but for his new U.S. Attorney to ask for a sentence of seven to nine years for Roger Stone makes Barr’s doj just as corrupt as any we have ever had.

      • MelH says:

        Everybody knows the President will pardon Stone, right?

        • Issy says:

          No, I don’t know that there are many considerations. He shouldn’t be put in that position. The prosecutors lied to their boss and put this sentencing memo out with his name on it. What does it take to show everybody how totally corrupt they are?

      • SharonKinDC says:

        Turns out the fmr Muller acolyte who is now running the Stone prosecution, LIED to his bosses at the DoJ, and recommended a far, far more severe sentencing recommendation. DoJ announced today that it was, basically, so far beyond what would be acceptable as to be an embarrassment to the department and miscarriage of justice. It’s being pulled as we speak.

        • Issy says:

          Yes. I saw that, but it’s still an embarrassment to the doj. What else have these prosecutors lied about to win their case? Why was there a swat raid with cnn coverage? I read all four had withdrawn from the case. Have they been fired yet? It’s an embarrassment to the doj if they still have jobs.
          All these Mueller cases have incidences of prosecutorial misconduct and intimidation worthy of a police state. The cases should be dismissed.

  3. Sammy Hains says:

    “It’s highly likely Warner’s communication with Warner was intercepted by FBI investigators”
    One of these Warners should be “Wolfe” I think.
    Also interesting to note, Mark Warner is also on the committee that will be questioning Liu.

  4. Mikgen says:

    Excellent! Everyone should be able to follow this very clear and factual writing by Sundance. Now it is up to the Senators to show some courage (ha, ha, ha… ).

    • lotbusyexec says:

      I sometimes get lost in the weeds BUT because of Sundances excellent presentation and connecting the dots writing style I am this AM full-blown frostbite and heading toward the early stages of gangrene. I need some serious oxygen therapy right now. Praying there is one honest Senator who will stand up to help slay this “Giant” — possibly Tom Cotton? OR maybe, just maybe, little Marco will want to be known forever as Jack, from, Jack and the Beanstalk. Many patriots would be thrilled to have a Giant-killer stand up for us all! Tom? Marco? Anyone? Are you reading CTH or listening? ?

      • RJ says:

        I’ll go with Tom Cotton if he is on that committee or can get the time to ask such questions. Sadly, I think of the Gotti episode where Sammy the Bull turned on his boss.
        The one person who makes a great deal of noise on how he intends to question others in order to protect the office of the presidency is Lindsey Graham of South Carolina. He makes more noise than the actions one would expect to occur. I would keep one eye on him anytime he is around me and never turn my back in front of him.
        Tom Cotton (in my mind at present) is presidential material. Rubio had his shot. Cotton is where I would place my hope and my money. Wolfe appears to be just a “runner” for some Senators on that committee who traded his top secret letter bag for some youthful sex via the female reporter.
        It is no stretch to think some Senators hated Trump…ask the widow McCain.
        The real question might be: Who will play the role of Brutus? Don’t forget the group that will bring Brutus close to the President…these are the people within the Gang of Eight!

        • doofusdawg says:

          The fact that Cotton has presidential aspirations is what will keep him from taking on the establishment. Cotton has been a major disappointment when it comes to Spygate. Had high hopes that he would be a reformer ever since he owned Shumer on the Senate floor.

        • Judith says:

          @RJ Pence would be the perfect Brutus. He was, after all, hand-picked by the RNC to be the President’s running mate, and straight out of Hollywood casting it would seem.
          The Enemedia has strangely ignored the VP, while viciously attacking everyone else around POTUS.
          Right out the gate, Pence was instrumental in the removal of Mike Flynn.
          Pence is the next in line for president during an ongoing, TREASONOUS coup. Convenience alone would therefore dictate that Pence is the perfect Brutus.
          It is certainly possible for Brutus to have a Brutus as well. There may in fact be a layers of Brutuses, like when ms-13 was hired to take out the actual DNC hacker, then someone else was hired to take out those ms-13 assassins, etc.
          Layers upon layers of Brutuses could be in the line-up. DC seems to operate much like that Goodfellas script. If so, then buh bye Mike, we hardly knew ya.

        • jimboct says:

          I can see cotton asking. Another possibility is McSally. She’s working on her conservative bonafides to get re elected this year.

        • lotbusyexec says:

          I really like Hawley – he has my vote if he decides to run one day ?

        Any South Carolinians here? Get this Sundance post to Tim Scott. He was on Maria B’s show Sunday, and he sounds like he’s hungry for bear.

        • 4sure says:

          Tim Scott is a swamp creature. He was handpicked by Niki Haley and was appointed by her to fill vacated seat of Jim DeMint who got fed up with the crooked swamp.
          Shouldn’t this be the job of the AG?

  5. inrecordtimes says:

    This isn’t “as big as spygate”… it is effing bigger!!!!!! Meanwhile, the DOJ wants to sock Roger Stone away for 9 years or more for almost nothing in comparison!

    • Mikgen says:

      And then we have the Awan brothers… with the right people on the Committtee (eg J Jordan, M Meadows, J Ratcliffe) this would have made for a very interesting afternoon. Unfortunately this is the Senate not the House….

      • sticknca says:

        I have a feeling we’re not done hearing about the Awan brothers, especially Jamal the one with the “exotic car business” that did a lot of shipping overseas.

      • Jonesy says:

        It must be Hollywood. This eerily is playing out like a movie/tv script, but the only hero is Sundance, and unless he is a manic bi-polar, addicted, transgender, fatally flawed character, this spy script “save the world resolution” will never happen. And really, this would be the only way to have sunlight on this spygate if we created a character and movie scripts as above, exposing this, but of course our hero will have to be a Social Justice Warrior D and the villains are R’s.
        But, I will be following up with my Senator today if he has the balls to ask the above questions on Thursday. I will cite from above! Thanks!

    • Issy says:

      I am enraged over the sentencing memo for Stone, and I don’t even like him. Barr is deep in the doj coverup now. I have been giving him some slack, but his newly appointed U.S. Attorney did this.

  6. POIU says:

    You silly boy……
    No matter the evidence the DoJ will refuse to prosecute or if the pressure is unbearable, they’ll charge murderers with J walking.
    It’s the insurance policy from heaven.

      • madeline says:

        Why is Muchin promoting Liu? Do they not know what happened previously? Are they making him include her in the Treasury legal System as under secretary? Is this to cover for the interesting piece Glen Beck just did the money laundering of 1.8B to Ukraine?

        • Old Lady says:

          You know they know. Maybe they know that’s the best way to watch her.

        • kleen says:

          Obama would have would have left the deep state handle her. Save the criminal Senators to control them, then spy on her, entrap her, smear, hand it over to his disinformation agents/msm to destroy her and her family, then she would have to go into hiding to save her life until her jail sentence starts for some process crime, since they wouldn’t want to expose the real crimes that implicate themselves. 30 years in jail sounds about right.

      • dd_sc says:

        Assuming she’s confirmed by the Senate, from her new position at Treasury, would Liu be the person tasked with investigations into any money laundering through Ukraine?

      • Thanks Sundance, Senator Brown was contacted and it was requested he make the proper inquiries of Liu. So far when contacted he has always done the opposite of my requests, dems. I will be contacting some of the warrior Republican Senators in the committee, some actually may ask the right questions.

      • Chgonana539 says:

        Why is J. lieu even being considered for anything???

      • LouisianaTeaRose says:

        So this will be a forum for a lot of questions about her previous activities and decisions, obvious things currently out in the open. Trump is tweeting about Roger Stone. Sidney Powell is pressing hard on the Mike Flynn plea withdrawl. Mnuchin’s push to bring the Secret Service back under Treasury has huge ramifications for the Ukraine Laundromat. I see lots of opportunities for several of these Senators to turn the fire up under this nominee. If I didn’t know better, I could almost imagine this thing being a dirty little rollout….hmmmmmm.

      • magakathryn says:

        Again, need clarification – You state it was the NYT’s FOIA request. Bradley Moss told ME that it was HIS FOIA request that resulted in Carter Page’s FISAs being released. Can you provide verification that it was the New York Times and NOT Bradley Moss & Mark Zaid’s FOIA request? You’re giving a lot of weight to it being the NYT, yet Moss specifically stated over a year ago it was HIM & Zaid (I had mistakenly thought it was Judicial Watch). Can you clarify?

      • Far above average work Sundance, as usual… incredible read.
        One quick question from the bullet points under the ramifications header.
        Should this be “Is it…” instead of “It is….”?
        “It is even possible for the United States Dept. of Justice to conduct a trial where members of the Gang of Eight were implicated in the activity?”
        And not nitpicking, seeking clarification.

      • magakathryn says:

        FYI – I’ve emailed Bradley Moss & Mark Zaid, informing them of your misinformation about WHO got Carter Page’s 4 FISA’s released – THEY DID via JMadisonProject – NOT the New York Times. Not sure what the heck you’re trying to do Mark and Rosie, Shannon, etc., but I will NOT play along with LIES, as it helps no one (unless you are actually on their side and against President Trump?). Beyond disgusted with what you’re doing Mark – you will not get away with it. Shame on you. It’s sick and disgusting.

  8. starfcker says:

    There is an even bigger question that’s been bugging me for a while. We see the institutionalized corruption and partisanship. Easy enough. But what propels it? Are these people all such dyed in the wool ideologues that their ideology alone is so strong that it compels every decision that they make regardless of the legal consequences? Or is there a command and control structure as of yet not on our radar? What guides all this? This is thousands of people. And nobody has yet broken rank. Nobody. Yes, there’s a few leaks here and there, but I would think there would be people coming out of the woodwork to do the right thing. There’s not. Not anybody. Is it ideology, or is it fear? Or are the people hired at federal agencies as meticulously psychologically profiled as Corporate America does, looking for sociopaths with no ethics or empathy for anything. It’s crazy either way.

    • James Carpenter says:

      Fair questions, starfcker.
      I’m not sure the answers would be compatible with the peace of mind required to have a pleasant day. Any day.

    • sbostian says:

      The problem is “mammon worship”. Among working stiffs, it manifests as fear of losing the paycheck if one pursues an honorable and ethical course of action. I have seen it for 4 decades in corporate life and now as a professor, I see the same disease in my students.

        • Raptors2020 says:

          You protect me, and I protect you. A house of cards. Impeachment was a soft landing for Biden, but certainly not his salvation. The Democrats remaining are mostly Washington outsiders, except Pocahontas. Liawatha’s corruption seems to be pre-Washington, with her Indian hoax. Alfred E. Neuman and Mini-Mike are mayors. Steyer is a billionaire and a crackpot. Bernie is the outsider in any group. Yang is the Asian version of Steyer.
          That leaves Amy, I guess. The Democrat Senators (Cory, Kamala, Kirsten) were dismissed, long ago. Democrats never tell the truth, but truth is a an implacable force. The hostility to Washington insiders surely reveals that Democrats understand the Swamp is fetid, and must be drained.
          Bloomberg will be their nominee because he has no Washington provenance. The socialists will, most improbably, support him, because he is an outsider. The Left’s answer to the intense corruption of the Clintons and the Bidens and the Obamas will be a New York billionaire. His outsider status must suffice in exchange for his plutocrat absurdities.

          • Fubu says:

            Never took Amy seriously until I saw a photo here at the “house” that had her along with the other corrupt gang of the former President of Ukraine, McCain, Graham, and
            Lui. They might try to elevate her to cover for them if things get a little squirrelly about the Ukraine thing. You know, birds of a feather.

    • LEET says:

      Star:
      For many it is ideology. Diane West’s book, The Red Thread makes an excellent case for that. Too MANY in government have the motto that the ends justifies the means and by any means necessary to achieve power.
      However, I believe there is another thing at play with massive gov’t corruption in terms of graft and scheme, i.e. US foreign aid, lots of hands in the US cookie jar. See Ukraine for example. Love of money (root of all evil) and love of power.

      • Joemama says:

        It has to be power. Pelosi and most of the rest have tons of (illegally obtained) money and yet they persist with their nefarious schemes. Pelosi probably only has a handful of years left on this earth and yet she continues. Why? What good is having all that money?

          That money Pelosi has can go to her “horse-faced pony soldier” daughter and son. Her daughter now lives in Texas and it bugs the sh*t out of me, not knowing why she moved here. Gotta do some research.

          • dd_sc says:

            Which daughter moved to Texas, Christine or Alexandra?
            Christine is a political activist and affiliated with California DNC; always figured she would take Nancy’s place representing SF.
            Alexandra makes documentaries. Never known her to have plans to run for office.

        The welfare state is wonderful, isn’t it LEET? The multi-millionaire (Liz Warren) is somehow entitled to share in the wealth of the billionaire (Bloomberg).
        All are victims except for the very richest (Bezos? Check todays stock market).
        A culture results where the rich get more government help than the poor, because the rich can employ lobbyists.
        Every word from the mouth of Pocahontas is a lie, because her entire life is a lie.
        How about a world where government takes their thumb off the scale, and only the very neediest receive the help they must have to survive? And in a country where the job openings outnumber the unemployed, that’s a very short list.

    • zekness says:

      its about money…
      to stay in power….crimes will invariably be committed. Once those crimes are properly structured “the team” can move to leverage entire apparatus to set up and provide access to some of the most powerful surveillance powers (information) that allows these people to get very very very very rich.
      the weaponization of surveillance is not purely a political solution….it is the means to utilize information that can only be gained by a select few…
      this is essentially the general matter of HRC server. And explains why the FBI inexplicably decided to ignore investigating any of it. HRC found a way to steer sensitive “insider” data to players in exchange for propelling and advances her own private interests..this makes her position as a future candidate solid among some of the most powerful and wealthy people around the globe. the FBI enabled and facilitated this (as did the state department), but HAD to take an investigation because eventually the poor opsec of HRC would eventually become known so it was show trial. And also explains why Comey did the 11th hour public statement….Comey was directed to do it. The inside criminals were aware that the only way to continue having this power themselves, was to insulate against the expected and unwelcomed open source investigations that might want to know exactly how it became to be that the secretary of state could be basically using here position and access to some of the highest priority secret information and then sharing this with foreign entities. So she was cast off.
      Warner and Burr and Feinstein have been “managing” this pay for play scheme for many years. Their primary role is to set up secret access sharing traps….and then when certain persons in high level positions use this information for personal enrichment, they use this knowledge as leverage to manipulate that person for a variety of purposes both politically and in relation to what they can perform on the executive level.
      Warner, Burr and Feinstein are basically CIA assets…that’s the job. In return they are allowed to live a free men, immune from inspection…..and have become some of the most privileged and wealthy persons in US government. All of them have very complex sovereign wealth funds that are coupled with a special fork of the private thrift saving program that only members of congress can participate.
      When you play ball, you get a reward. In this case, these three (and many more) have created a secret data market. It’s basically what this entire matter is about.

    • GB Bari says:

      SIMPLE Answer:
      1. Money from graft and corruption of which they’re ALL guilty.
      2. Maintaining their positions of power and leverage in order to KEEP the spigots open for MORE MONEY.
      I also believe that more and more of these corrupt individuals are willing to sell out America’s defense advantage to our enemies in the (dangerously false) belief that if both we and they are equally armed, it will be a standoff and neither side would begin conflict because of mutually assured destruction.

  9. hawkins6 says:

    Unlike the Schiff fiasco, this is a cogent and well presented case that should lead to further investigation and questioning in the Senate Committee but “Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs” seems a tad off topic.
    Senator Kennedy definitely has the ability to effectively question Ms. Liu if he knew the background and was committed. But the confirmation hearing will probably be a rubber stamp snoozer as all the Dems are likely already united in their approval. It would be great to be wrong.
    The picture of Rudy at the bottom seems to indicate that sundance feels as ignored and frustrated as Guiliani because they have both worked hard to reveal unpunished illegal acts and gotten nowhere. SD has spent a lot of time and effort on this alleged Wolfe/Warner cover up and the undeniable 2 tiered reduction of his sentence. No long sentence for Wolfe. He’s in the DOJ’s elite protected class not the deplorable class like Roger Stone or Gen. Flynn. Disgusting!

      Seems pretty obvious tamping was completed Dec 20 2018
      when Wolfe was sentenced to a slap on the wrist.
      Before Barr was even there.
      Dead and Buried…..six feet under.
      But I guess Bill could add more dirt on top of the grave if that will itch your Barr scratch.
      Or maybe one of the Senators could bring a shovel to Liu’s confirmation and exhume it.
      But that would require manual labor.

    perhaps the simple deal with PDJT was:

    • Gary says:

      As if our President would actually bend over and tie his own shoes together? I just don’t see that happening.

    • No Beau, for that to be true, President Trump would be exactly like the swamp he’s trying to drain. I don’t believe he made any deal like that… I think he plans on winning. I just don’t know what his plan is and that’s why I keep watching expectantly to see how/if he pulls it off. Admittedly, that’s just being hopeful. But hope is all I have left.

    • Issy says:

      There are deals all over the place in government. Quid Pro Quo on steroids is what makes government work, which made the impeachment talk about Trump and a QPQ so ridiculous.
      I don’t think Trump needed to make a deal with the republicans on impeachment. The charges were so weak and the republican voters so solidly behind the President, the senators didn’t have any leverage.
      If there was a deal with Barr, it was over the Mueller investigation. Allow him to do what he can to clean up the mess at doj and smooth everything over, and he shuts Mueller down.
      It was a dangerous time for Trump. Mueller/Weissman were running rampant with no end in sight, and Trump’s hands were tied to do anything to defend himself or it was obstruction.

  15. sticknca says:

    Okay, Senators Cotton, Sasse, and Warner are on both the banking Committee AND the SSCI for which the cretin in question worked. Warner is dirty and I’ve seen nothing from Tommy or Benny that indicates that their testicles have descended yet.
    The best chance I see at getting those James Wolfe questions would be from the mouth of John Kennedy of the Great State of Louisiana. That failing, those who pray might think of McSally because…. women.

    • Issy says:

      Kennedy would be the only one I can think of that has the guts. He doesn’t seem to care what others think of him or have presidential aspirations. He might have concerns about the institution though. It’s a big deal for a member to open a can of worms about the actions of other members.

  16. Ali Watkins was Wolfe’s Quid Pro Ho, but the quid pro quo for Liu was to give Wolfe a sweetheart deal in return for silence about Warner’d complicity in the coup.
    NONE OF THEM DARE to let the public really understand the degree to which darn near every part of the federal government has a vested interest in stymieing President Trump’s presidency. He, alone, is the single greatest threat to the rivers of corrupt cash that flow through DC.

    Just so… when, over years, corrupt U.S. Senate committees treacherously collude with Deep State security-surveillance organs here and overseas to de-legitimize an American national election, subsequently conducting a literally treasonous campaign against the country’s duly elected Chief Executive in violation of sworn fiduciary duties, can complicit authorities’ ex parte judex indulging Praetorians’ “quis custodiet” ever reclaim public trust?

    Terrorist Financing and Financial Crimes
    As the policy development and outreach office for TFI, the Office of Terrorist Financing and Financial Crimes (TFFC) works across all elements of the national security community – including the law enforcement, regulatory, policy, diplomatic and intelligence communities – and with the private sector and foreign governments to identify and address the threats presented by all forms of illicit finance to the international financial system.
    TFFC advances this mission by developing initiatives and strategies to deploy the full range of financial authorities to combat money laundering, terrorist financing, WMD proliferation, and other criminal and illicit activities both at home and abroad. These include not only systemic initiatives to enhance the transparency of the international financial system, but also threat-specific strategies and initiatives to apply and implement targeted financial measures to the full range of national security threats. Primary examples of these roles in advancing this mission is TFFC’s leadership of the U.S. Government delegation to the Financial Action Task Force, which has developed leading global standards for combating money laundering and terrorist financing and its role in specific efforts to counter threats like proliferation, terrorism and the deceptive financial practices of Iran

  26. Excellent article, as always.
    On a more serious note –
    –How could the highest and most widely recognized U.S. media institutions (NYT, WaPo, CNN and more) survive exposure within that same trial.–
    That point would GO BEAUTIFULLY with a recent story about how the UK’s MI5 & MI6 now have both “The Guardian” and “The Huffington Post UK” working for them. See Consortium News-
    https://consortiumnews.com/2020/02/10/huffpost-uk-editor-works-with-censorship-program/
    That story would pair NICELY with a review of the New York Times reporting on the Ukrainian Court holding that Ukraine had politicians meddling in the US 2016 election*. Of course, this Ukrainian election interference involved leaking “black ledger” stories for the New York Times to print.
    That explains why the New York Times is taking the lead on labeling any investigation into Ukraine election interference in 2016 as “Ukraine conspiracy theories.”
    * A quick aside about the Ukraine lawsuits. The decisions (there are 2) about the Ukraine interference in the 2016 US election are often misunderstood. The FIRST decision about Ukrainian interference in the 2016 US Election came from a “trial court” (District Administrative Court of Kyiv) and is based on evidence, it held that it was a proven FACT (an event that actually happened) that Ukrainian government officials interfered in the 2016 US election to hurt Trump and help Clinton. That decision was reversed by a higher Court (Sixth Administrative Court of Appeal) based on “law” (e.g. principle) that the reformist Ukrainian Parliament members who brought the lawsuit “lacked standing” to complain about violations of the law that did not directly harm them. (This line of reasoning is identical to the line of reasoning which led to the 2016 DNC class action lawsuit about the DNC & DWS rigging the Democratic primary for Clinton and against Sanders. “Yes, THEY broke the law. No, YOU don’t have any authority to enforce the laws.”)
    On a lighter note-
    –In December of 2017 Mr. Wolfe was confronted with evidence of his leaking to journalists including a woman now working for the New York Times named Ali Watkins, with whom he was having a sexual relationship – implied as a possible quid-pro-quo.–
    I think the accurate term would be “quif-pro-quo.”

  27. jbowen82 says:

    Sundance, is it possible that the reduction in charges is explainable by Wolfe being an (undisclosed, so far) cooperating witness?

    Even if the right questions are asked, what’s to stop Liu from using the same dodge as all her peers who have been called to testify under oath? “I’m sorry Senator/House Member, I can’t comment on a matter that may or may not be under criminal investigation. As you know, John Durham is…..[yadda yadda].
    It’s worked so far for them. Why stop now?

  30. Hmmm... says:

    A bit of extra confirmation is provided by Papadapoulos who says that Ross and the NYTimes approached him immediately after the Page FISA story broke telling him that they had seen damaging information about Papadapoulos in a FISA connected to his work in Israel. There is no Pap FISA. There is however a section in the Page FISA about Pap. Those reporters who approached him were basing this on the information from the unredacted Page FISA.
    Further, if you explore the chronology of the exposure of the true date of the FISA it becomes apparent that Rosenstein was involved in lying to Nunes about the date. I almost guarantee that the big blowup meeting with Rosenstein that involved threats to his staffer Kash Patel was about the dates.
    Part of the reason for the leak was to leak the false date of Oct 19. The entire Cohen to Prague story only became important when the date moved to Oct 21. Cohen then immediately became a Mueller target after that meeting with Rosenstein. You can check the dates. How is it that Cohen was ignored completely for the entire first part of Mueller? The first attack story on Cohen popped up the day after the Rosenstein blow up meeting.

    • Hmmm... says:

      Just to follow up for clarity the Cohen to Prague story was in the Oct 20 memo in the dossier. Oddly the one that was out of order in the Buzzfeed release ( if I remember correctly). That’s why the date move was so important.

    • Mikgen says:

      Well spotted re Pap!

    • WhiteBoard says:

      Kash Patel was also the guy sitting behind Trey Gowdy when he was asking Jeh Johnson about hacks – aka AWAN.
      in summary – this entire thing is a shadow investigation of china (proxy via Russian narrative)

    Imagine how different today’s scenario would be if President Trump had done what the Republican House Intelligence Committee members begged him to do – declassify all the Russia investigation documents, including the FISA application, and remove all redactions? Possibly the House would still be Republican. Possibly Devin Nunes and Mark Meadows would still be running House investigations. In any event, we would all have facts and not still, two years later, be forced to engage in endless guessing games. And the people – We The People – could be demanding our representatives answer the very questions Sundance now has to beg some Senator to ask. Which they won’t. President Trump promised to declassify all this well before the 2018 elections. He failed to honor that promise. And now we are seeing this massive “cover up” during President Trump’s administration.

      The story of Nineveh in The Book of Jonah is the only case I am aware of in which this typical cycle (“from bondage to spiritual faith; from spiritual faith to great courage; from courage to liberty; from liberty to abundance; from abundance to complacency; from complacency to apathy; from apathy to dependency; from dependence back again into bondage (Alexander Tyler, 1750). was broken!

        • magakathryn says:

          Why is Sundance (Mark Bradman) lying? It was NOT the New York Times via FOIA that got Carter Page’s 4 FISA’s released. It was Bradley Moss & Mark Zaid via the JMadisonProject (btw – Mark Zaid is the whistleblower’s attorney). Why is Sundance lying about this? It’s info on Twitter and has been confirmed for nearly 2 years. Why IS SUNDANCE LYING?

  52. We should all remember that PDJT has no friends in the US Senate – nor anywhere else. Even though many of them remarked about the Unconstitutionality of the first Articles of Impeachment, none of them formally objected to proceeding to a Guilty/Not-Guilty vote (which thereby served to affirm what the House had done). In that vote, they “voted with their T-shirts,” not as a trier of (non-existent) fact.
    We don’t know how many times in a row this President will be impeached until the House finally comes up with a Bill of Attainder that is entirely acceptable to the Senate. But, unless and until Trump files Trump v. US Congress in the Supreme Court and wins it, we know that the persecutions will simply continue.
    The appointment of Ms. Liu could in fact be a means to that end – putting her in a position whereby she not only can “cover up” but might fabricate some suitably damning document, much as (I think) Schiff thought his Lt. Col. friend had been able to do with the Ukraine transcript.

    • BigTalkers says:

      I recall a long time ago when a freshman Rep described then Speaker Tip O’Neill as, “Big, fat, and out of control!”

    • inspectorudy says:

      This is just one more example of how the deep state people keep getting put into positions that prevent any further look into the Russian hoax. Just take a look at the person the FISC judge appointed to “Clean up” the FISA mess. He was part of it! Look at Martha Stewart and how she got one year in prison for lying to the F-ing FBI! Wolfe not only lied but leaked top-secret information! Sen. Warner and Burr should both be brought before a tribunal to answer WTF they were doing and why they should not be tried for treason. Another example is Michael Atkinson who was part of the deep state who became the ICIG and was part of the whistleblower complaint hoax. I do not understand what DJT is doing. Why can’t he tell AG Barr to get off of his fat ass and go after these criminals?

    • Ray Runge says:

      Mike, so agree that POTUS has no real friends in the Senate. A prime illustration is that no real challenge was made to the Bill of Attainder presented as articles of impeachment.
      My ability to follow the complexity of corruption that Mrs. Liu and so many others have woven through the intrenched bureaucracy, even give Sundaane’s clear explanation, is both time consuming and mind numbing. Exasperating given that Bill Barr has oversight to influence this decision.
      As a means to stay abreast, my personal hallmark that I monitor fro the “no friends in the Senate” phenomena is Mitch’s blanket refusal to allow ANY recess appointments for Trump to staff the administration.

Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) about his review of the Page FISA and the overall FISA process.“I’ve reviewed that one in some detail, and I can tell you the information about that doesn’t match with my understanding of the one that I signed, but I think it’s appropriate to let that Inspector General complete that investigation. These are serious allegations. I don’t do the investigation — I’m not the affiant. I’m reviewing the finished product, sir,” Rosenstein said. Earlier this month it was disclosed that it was Rosenstein who authorized the DOJ to make the initial December 2017 release of the texts sent by former FBI Agent Peter Strzok and former FBI lawyer Lisa Page.

    Tim Scott and John Kennedy are our best shots at asking the questions.
    I’d suggest we bombard them with emails and texts to ask this questions.
    ♦ Did the DOJ or FBI have evidence that SSCI Security Director James Wolfe leaked the Carter Page FISA application to the media?
    ♦ Why was James Wolfe not prosecuted for that leak of classified information?
    I’d also send this entire article to PT, Barr, Sidney Powell, Don Jr, Mulvaney, Rudy, Jay Sekulow, Patrick Philbin, Sara Carter, Tucker Carlson, John Solomon, Rush and Bongino.
    Now do people see why we need Sidney Powell as the Justice Czar sitting between Barr and PT?
    Imagine if she was in place between Rosenstein and PT. This kind of crap and injustice DOES NOT get buried.
    You can not trust our FIB and DOJ to investigate themselves. We need Sidney as our Justice Czar with full authority to read and review all documents related to Russia Gate, Spygate, impeachment gate and Ukraine Gate and report back to PT.
    And finally does it now make sense why Liu is going to Treasury? IMO its the counter move to ensure when our team goes looking for Ukraine Money Laundering that this too gets nipped in the bud.
    Stone goes to jail for 7-9 years and yet NOT a SINGLE Perpetrator involved in ALL of the Gates is indicted for anything?
    It just never ends with these people.
    Step one – we all need to send the question requests ASAP
    Step two – we need to send to PT the suggestion to add Sidney as the Justice Czar.

        Excellent comment, Jederman.
        Jederman: “The way McConnell has things stacked up now, what difference does it make anymore? As long as the DS controls McConnell they have control of who is confirmed.”
        Yup. President Trump is working against a list of approved swampy candidates of varying degrees, who can be confirmed. Not on the list? Not confirmed. I believe President Trump has proposed several candidates now that didn’t meet swamp approval. President Trump was told they’d never pass; pick again.
        Jederman: “They have weaponized it by almost unanimous vote that the senate will remain in session in perpetuity. Or at least until PT is out of the WH.”
        Yup, yup. I think the Senate has already set the record for days in session. Already the Senate has slapped us all in the face by not allowing our Choice for President to make recess appointments. We voted Trump for President and the people he would see fit to assist him. Grrrrr…. SPIT!
        Jederman: “Other than the bully pulpit, I don’t know what else PT has to work with if the Do”J” is corrupted.”
        President Trump uses the bully pulpit better than probably any preceding President. If he’s not the best at it, he’s in at least the top two or three. He’s also getting help from outsiders like Rudy G. and probably some old friends and contacts we don’t even know about.
        One suggestion: Mrs. H.R. and I have been donating to Judicial Watch since about a year or so ago. We’re retired so our income is somewhat constrained, but we’re blessed to be doing fine and can send $25 or $50 here and there.
        It sucks that we have to pay a separate non-government organization to do the job that our fat-cat, bureaucrat, highly-paid government employees won’t do. And it really sucks that we are forced to pay the corrupt swampers not to carry out their duty.
        .
        .
        Again, really good comment, Jederman. When people come here and ask, “Why can’t Trump do something about these backstabbers?” or “Why is Trump making these horrible picks?” Well, you gave the answer.

  60. IGiveUp says:

    Just to be clear. This story is about the mechanics of how senate Republicans and allies illegally tried to stop Trump from succeeding–or perhaps participated in what might reasonably be called a coup. This is about adding some more names to the guilty list of people who aren’t prosecuted or punished..
    It’s awful but nothing new. Real news would be if some Senate Republicans tried to stop it.

  61. Richard Whitney says:

    @Bogeyfree…Agreed.
    Remember Brian Ross of ABC News? His firing was another fallout from the Wolfe indictment. There were 4 reporters. The document had a watermark to identify the source of the leak and the MSM involved. Those reporters were under surveillance during the investigation, so prior to the December interrogation of Wolfe.
    The Wolfe indictment is a thing of beauty everyone should read.

    • Roger Duroid says:

      So, SOMEONE in the DOJ put on the watermark to identity leaks, but nothing was done! Who put on watermarks and then why do nothing once someone was caught? Did they think some low level secretary was doing the leaking or it was some senators staff member? Once they caught the fish, it was too big to reel in.

      • Bogeyfree says:

        I think Sundance’s point is they were tracking the leakers and were prepared to go full bore until they realized it might lead to the SSCI?
        Thus the plea down and disappearing act.
        Do I have that right Sundance?

        • Ray Runge says:

          Bogey, I am thinkingJames Wolfe, through his lawyer, threatened to call the SSCI Senators to testify at trial. Wolfe did not leak to Miss concubine without some level of approval from the bosses.

    Jessie Liu would be wise to resign from government service. Whether she will or not doesn’t really matter. She’s in a total no-win situation. Sucks to be you, Liu.

  63. More excellent reporting by SD – causing me yet again to throw up a breakfast in disgust.
    SD said earlier something to the effect that AG Barr’s problem is not to handle what “he” knows but “how to handle what we Deplorables know”.

      So true. The person(s) who feed all this info to this site may be using the knowledge that people outside of DC know, thereby setting the wheels in motion for a particular part of the coup plot/plotters to be next-in-line for consequences.

  65. Paprika says:

    Mmmmm…….Here we are hoping Republican Senators will shoot down one of President Trump’s nominations. Or are we just hoping for answers to a serious problem and then vote to pass her nomination out of committee? Or to have Republican Senators vote down PT’s nomination?
    I’ll need to put my ‘thunking’ cap on a wee bit tighter and give this issue some more viewing time to see all the different angles at play here. Course there would be no need of any of this if the DoJ would just do it’s dang job!

    • Julian says:

      She’s Trump’s nominee so let’s hope the Republicans get behind Trump.
      The last thing we need is Republicans stabbing Trump in the back. That would be just horrible.
      Trust Trump. Trump knows what he’s doing.
      Having said that. Jesse Liu is a completely corrupt and pathetic choice after failing massively in her previous job.

      • Paprika says:

        Therein lies the problem, doesn’t it? I do trust President Trump. I do not trust Liu. So I don’t understand why PT nominated Liu.
        There could be a perfectly understandable reason or deal going on that we don’t know about that makes sense. Or it could be bad advise or PT is not totally aware of the situation as he is busy running the country and has 100’s of issues each and every day to make decisions on and move forward. Or……….?????
        Too many possibilities and too little information to base a sound decision on. I trust and believe in both PT and Sundance to do their best for our country and the American people.
        So for the time being I will trust that there was a good reason for PT to nominate Liu and trust in Sundance that this is a good time for a Senator to ask the ‘right frigging questions’ and let the cards be dealt and show what they will.

      • Issy says:

        She didn’t fail. She did the bidding of the corrupt doj in shutting down the Wolfe prosecution. She also did the prosecution of General Flynn for Mueller.

  66. Chris says:

    The gang of eight; also included Speaker Ryan. Put him the middle of this. It might explain; why over 40 GOP house members; decided to retire. I have always felt that the GOP handed the house to Nancy.
    The other thing I feel about all the coup attempts; they have been fighting a rear guard action. The insurance policy and all the rest; have been CYA operations.
    The only other thing left have to consider is; the swamp rats must not want to spend time in prison; or a blindfold and a cigarette.

    • Debra says:

      And the Senate Majority leader (Harry Reid) at the time the spy gate crap (2016) all started ‘retired’, also.
      Hmmmmm m.

  67. Ordinaryman says:

    Called my Senator RINO Thom Tillis in his Washington and Charlotte office and gave them the key questions to ask.

  68. zekness says:

    does anyone want to learn exactly how James Wolfe served those two months of “prison”.
    you’ll be surprised.
    it becomes just another feature of how “punishment” is served.
    spoiler: I’ve spent day in 3 star hotels with harder conditions.

  69. I read yesterday that Trump wants to move the Secret Service back under the control of the Treasury instead of DHS. If Liu is approved, would she manage Trump’s SS? Perish the thought…

    • dd_sc says:

      No, the Director of the Secret Service is appointed by the president and reports directly to (currently) Secretary of DHS. If moved, the Secret Service will report to Sec. Treasury Mnuchin.
      And I think that the appointment of the Director of Secret Service does not require Senate confirmation.

  70. DC voted 90% for Hillary.
    Most of DC is opposed to presidency of Donald J Trump.
    Replacing one DC corruptocrat with another will not change much if anything.
    Long term we need to
    1. Downsize the federal government by 90%
    2. Relocate most of the remaining function far away from D.C.

    • Zippy says:

      DT won 4%, Felonia von Pantsuit close to 91%, indicating that DC voted more for third party candidates (5%) than for DT.

    • George Connolly says:

      Amen, Amen, Trumplandslide!!!!! The solution is to move 90% of DC out of DC. IMHO, DC is known as the district of corruption because there are not enough “real” people living among the bureaucrats, who are in turn, disconnected from the people they say they serve. The corruption exists in part because there is no check on it.
      Let’s start by moving HUD to Baltimore. Dr. Carson knows Baltimore and the city of Baltimore is a fantastic setting for urban development. There is plenty of corruption in Baltimore and the imposition of a transparency mandate in federal aid would be welcome. People long for law and order and the people of Baltimore deserve better than what they have received in terms of representation.
      I am sure there are plenty of cities and urban hubs which would welcome federal agencies. Move and adapt. Decentralize and deregulate. The more local the government, the more representative the government.
      Send the problem solvers to the problems and out of their ivory tower.

  71. Donzo says:

    It’s impossible to win over any reasonable liberals to the cause under these circumstances where justice is denied. As long as no indictments prevail and the corruption is buried, the less informed will believe that there’s no there there, especially with Trump constantly referencing the witch hunt, but getting no action from his own DOJ. It’s beyond frustration in a personal level, but a disgrace on a national level. We cannot have “we the people” unless Barr delivers.

  72. jwh49 says:

    I’m in Louisiana and just informed Senator Kennedy’s office of this post and asked that he be made aware prior to this Thursday’s confirmation hearing. God is GREAT and MAGA 2020!

  73. Liberty Forge says:

    Sidney Powell is on this. She’s posted the article on her Twitter account.
    Now, let’s see if any others follow suit.

  74. Truth seeker says:

    The longer this goes on, the deeper it gets and I don’t believe anyone will be held accountable. For there to be true justice, half of DC would be thrown in jail. Good luck w that.
    BTW, Has anyone seen Ristvan in a while? I enjoy his commentary and I haven’t seen him post in quite some time.

  75. Jmbuck says:

    I have called my Senator’s office and have followed up that conversation with an email. My Senator, Senator David Perdue, is on the committee questioning her. He is up for election. But that is the least of his worries. I basically told him that not asking these question of Ms. Jessie Liu will put him on the side with the coup conspirators for all of recorded history because the truth will come out. There is no doubt he knows exactly what is going on, no excuses will be believed.
    This needs to end now. The longer this goes on the more the President’s life is in danger as well as his family’s. These people are evil.

    • Zachary Navarre says:

      I’m from GA as well.
      I have also called both his offices and verbally given his aides the list of 5 cases that Sundance outlined and asked that Mr. Perdue consider them as critical for his questioning.

  76. Sentient says:

    Kevin Cramer, Mike Rounds and Jerry Moran might be most likely to help out here. Not that they’re likely – just that they’re most likely. Sassehole and Cotton are on the SSCI, so they will protect the cabal.

  77. Luna says:

    Is she being nominated by Barr to run cover for Biden? Isn’t Hunters pole dancing baby mamma suing to have treasury release records?

  78. As always…great work Sundance. You amaze to cease me.
    Unfortunately, I’m afraid no one will have the courage to ask these important questions and our corrupt media would downplay it and attack anyone who did ask.

  79. Payday says:

    Maybe this is why PT wasn’t impeached? That this was the deal? We’ll save your Presidency if you agree to save the Congress? Meanwhile, we’ll go after a few of the coup plotters to show we’re concerned about swamp corruption?

    • SEDeuceTER says:

      EXCELLENT! I did the same with a much simpler message to the 4 senators that I thought might have a snowball’s chance in hell of actually asking the questions: Scott, Cotton, Kennedy, and McSally. I heard a Senator a while back state that as few as 100 emails on a topic has an enormous impact on a Senator/staff. I encourage anyone to follow up! “Senator Cotton, I strongly encourage that your staff and you closely review the linked article in preparation for your confirmation hearing with Jessie Liu tomorrow. Just a few simple questions could have an enormous impact on the ongoing swamp draining that is crucial to the restoration of Our Country as founded. Thank you for your consideration. Tom Richardson https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2020/02/11/the-dc-cover-up-thats-as-big-as-spygate/

    • polk8dot says:

      Thank you for setting up the form letter. It took me a little time to get emails out to all 13 Republican members on that committee, but you did all the prep work, so kudos.
      Also, having gone thru this process, it was inescapable to realize that every single website is designed and maintained by a different entity. Now, what is the reason for this money wasting exercise? I suspect it is probably due to state representation, but shouldn’t all Senators and Congressmen have standardize websites, directly off the main one? The duplication of effort, resources, and spending needs to be reined in, and it might as well start with them.

  81. Step One: Prepare Indictments
    Step Two: Prepare Republican Senators to Parry Depravity Party Thrusts
    Step Three: Send Sen Graham Out to Obfuscate & Misdirect Lawfare War Room
    Step Four: Schedule Liu Hearing
    Step Five: Ask Sundance’s List of Questions

  82. Zippy says:

    Gawd! Since it’s impossible to be UN-Red-Pilled, I still read this stuff about things I cannot do anything about (other than vote for Trump, then hopefully Trump Jr.) that simply further prove how INSANELY corrupt the highest level of the fedgov is.

    • Debra says:

      ‘Hope’ cannot alter the mechanics of how a human being came to be a natural born person.

        • Debra says:

          DJT, Jr. cannot ‘hope’ away the circumstances wrt him becoming a viable human being, and neither can you.
          IOW, he cannot change the FACT that he is not a natural born citizen, and thus, ineligible to be U.S. president or vice-president.
          Hence, your ‘hope’ to vote for him is unrealistic, unless you live in the state he lives in and he is running for a state office (e.g. Senator of NY).

          • MustangBlues says:

            ”’Debra says:
            February 11, 2020 at 1:11 pm
            DJT, Jr. cannot ‘hope’ away the circumstances wrt him becoming a viable human being, and neither can you.”’
            And you have the definitive word, ruling that precludes that action???? Lots of people comment with authority of personal conviction based on their limited understanding; do you remember Dear Leader Chosen One, Imam Baraki Obama????

            • Debra says:

              Of course I remember him.
              Do YOU remember how he was vetted? Do you remember what was said about his birth certificate? That there was ‘something embarrassing to the family’ such that it would not be made public?
              And, yet, ‘some form’ of a birth certificate was released. WHAT was so embarrassing to the family that precluded it from being released as part of the previous vetting process? And, yet, STILL, Obama would not hold a physical copy with raised state seal up to his face and definitively declare, ‘this is a truthful representation wrt the circumstances of my birth’ . . .
              Let us just suppose that the original vetting process revealed a ‘different daddy’ which would be embarrassing to the family, and that biological father was a citizen. But, to sow confusion about the eligibility requirements, the latter ‘story’ and birth certificate made its way into the public consciousness. And, just WHICH party looked to their own slate of ineligible candidates once the Obama terms were up . . .
              The logic contained in the four corners of our Constitution clearly deigns who is a natural born citizen, and anyone with the desire to logically analyze same can be their own authority on the subject.
              Cheers!

  83. Wow, this is one of the best threads I’ve read here at CTH! Sundance, I’m always amazed at how you can dig out relevant details that were (intentionally) missed by the MSM. And the comments from fellow treepers on this thread are outstanding! This has to be the most informed group of political thinkers in the country! You are ALL paying attention! I LOVE it (and don’t know what I’d do without it). Thanks ALL, for your comments!

  84. mortgagesforthemasses says:

    I go off into the weeds with this, but I think it need to be said and may address one of SD”s concerns.
    SD has been stating since early 2017 the media are active participants in the multiple coup attempts, and there is plenty of evidence to prove the case.
    To save the Republic, the Deep State media participants need to be taken out. The President needs to unleash Rudy and RICO when going after the rest of the rats.
    I also feel it’s high time to regulate ownership of media organizations. The large conglomerates and media companies should be forced to divest ownership and spin them off as separate free-standing joint stock companies, and reduce maximum ownership positions to less than 5%, or whatever percentage that will keep a large stock owner from dictating “their current truth”.
    Let them compete in the market of truth. Part of the legislation should include a consumer bill of rights ( focus group test that one with Dems) that allows cable and satellite subscribers to opt out of paying fees for network they don’t want. I stopped buying cable because I refuse to help finance CNN, MSNBC, and the rest of the propagandists.
    And finally, change the laws and prevent the government from publishing and airing self-serving propaganda. Public service announcements are one one thing, but paying for advocacy pieces on public policy should e banned.

    • cheering4america says:

      Oops, there goes PBS … good riddance.

    • Debra says:

      Agreed that ‘speech’ is needing attention.
      My thoughts are that the ‘media conglomerates’ should be rated – – like the movie rating system – – such that consumers who care not to hear, read, see, be exposed in any way to ‘R’ rated material, have a choice in purchasing a package that is ‘G’ rated.
      G Rating: truth, no opinion, child appropriate — Cost $
      PG Rating: builds on above, but allows opinion, innuendo — Cost $$
      R Rating: builds on above, but allows insults, cussing, adult topics — Cost $$$
      X Rating: builds on the above, but carries no restriction on material — Cost $$$$
      In other words, if people want to fill their entertainment hours, mind, and emotional energy on anything other than the truth, then they should be willing to pay for it.

  85. Hans says:

    I found it strange that Sen Graham was with PDT at his NH rallie… I wonder if PDT might have given him sort of amnesty deal.. I remember hearing if you jailed all the crooks in the government there would be no one to run the government.
    Looks like with Sidney Powers link to this article the knowledge that everyone knows might promp an honest answer.
    With that said maybe its Time for Jessie Liu to claim she was under oath and decided to come clean.
    One can only hope…

  86. TradeBait says:

    Please send this to all elected officials. Much will be revealed by what happens next.
    Simply outstanding, sundance. Thank you!

  87. ezduzit63 says:

    Great work Sundance! I hope we all remember WHO questioned that the FISAs had to be Fake or Manipulated..even if just in our hearts…

  88. albertus magnus says:

    Contacted Senator Tillis’ office today. Sent him all of the info and a link to TCTH. This was provided to his DC Senate office, not his campaign and talked to his legislative assistant. They seemed interested, especially given I am a GOP voter in NC (Tillis has a primary next month) and I have been a major donor to him from his time as our legislative speaker of the house. Just want to encourage everyone to contact DC and the Senate office not the campaign office.

  89. steph_gray says:

    Another fantastic wrapup! Kudos! Sharing with my small but determined blue MA community…

  90. Christy Stanko says:

    I’d like to talk about the 2018 midterm election. Do you really think that the same people who voted for Trump in 2016 and who will be voting for him in 2020, plus the many, many who didn’t vote for him in 2016 but realized by 2018 that they should have and will in 2020, votes to flip the house?? I don’t and that is the one and only reason that I will be concerned about the 2020 election unless a lot of people are behind bars by then.

  91. paintbrushsage says:

    The SSCI were real chumps to Carter Page by insisting he cooperate and turn over documents when they could get them through the surveillance of him that had already leaked.
    https://twitter.com/MarkWarner/status/860556899648851968?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E860556899648851968&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftalkingpointsmemo.com%2Flivewire%2Fsenate-intelligence-asks-trump-allies-records-russia-communications

      • paintbrushsage says:

        As the clip recounts, Carter Page was trying to get help related to the leaks from Burr, Warner, and SSCI staff. The whole process was cruel.
        In one instance in the statement of offense, Carter Page seemed to be trying to get some help to the leak repercussions he was dealing with by blind carbon copying James Wolfe when “complaining” (geesh…more like distraught I bet) about Reporter #1’s reporting about him.
        James Wolfe, Statement of offense, October 11, 2018, pg. 6

        • paintbrushsage says:

          Obviously Carter Page got ahold of Michael Wolfe’s email from someone by May 8, 2017 (when he blind carbon copied him) the day after this e-mailed letter.
          Subject: Your statement of May 5, 2017 (“Chairman Burr and Vice Chairman Warner Statement on Carter Page’s Participation in SSCI Investigation”)

          -snip-
          Related to a wide range of questions that I have, I left the first such message in person on March 6, 2017 at SSCI’s blockade on the second floor of the Hart Senate Office Building when I hand delivered my response to your initial correspondence. I have many questions so subsequently followed up with several phone and email messages. In each instance, your offers appear to have been some sort of theoretical proposition since I still haven’t heard back from anyone over 63 days later. Rather than answering my questions as you had proposed on multiple occasions, I have only received your massive data dump request of April 28, 2017 which would cover redundant, highly irrelevant information collected in further violation of my civil rights given the unjustified FISA warrants which already targeted me last year. It seems logical that having an actual conversation
          like human beings might prove more productive, as you had originally offered and in contrast to the Big Brother methods of the Obama Administration in 2016.

  92. Talkofthetown says:

    This needs sent to James Woods and Lou Dobbs as well. Great work as always.

  93. Bit Coyne says:

    I rarely write. I am the ex-prosecutor, Law Review Editor who correctly predicted here over a year ago that Gen. Flynn would move to withdraw his guilty plea in an attempt to go to trial. Although his motion/request to withdraw has not yet been decided, if denied, it will be appealed. Much of what is written here will be revealed in his trial, which could last 6 months. Also watch the Carter Page civil suit, which likewise will last 6 months. Watch for a Nolle Pros on Flynn and large cash settlement to Page to bury this forever. Predictit.org, the betting odds for McCabe, Comey and Brennan being indicted are near 100-1 against. Prosecutors will ALWAYS protect their own, including Barr.

    • His own would be Lynch and Mueller, not Comey or Brennan.

      • Bit Coyne says:

        Law enforcement protects law enforcement, all are considered law enforcement. If you want to extend that a little further government employees protect other government employees. Wasn’t that one of the main takes of this article? How hard did Sen. Menendez prosecutors try in his trial, and he wasn’t retried. Michael Cohen and Manafort and Stone are not government employees. Likewise neither is Trump. I think you miss the point of this entire 4 year disaster. When the Deep State knows they have general immunity for everything except murder, they will continue to do what they want.

    • butch cassidy says:

      That’s quite a statement there Bit.What about Nifong from the famous Duke Lacrosse scandal? I’m sure with a little research I could find many more. But what you just did with your post is you trashed all prosecutors and if that’s the case you were trashing yourself as well right? You used the word ALWAYS. Well for the sake of our country I sure hope you were just spouting off, a little hyperbole, if not we are all in big trouble.

      • Bit Coyne says:

        Hope you are still on this thread. Yes I was a prosecutor and I hate prosecutors. I hate most lawyers and all gov’t lawyers. The only good lawyers are defense, the bad guys go to the gov’t, all are at or near the bottom of their law school classes. Bill Clinton worked for the gov’t his whole career from U.Ark. law prof out of law school ad nausem.
        You have to realize that these people are bad people. They go law school and then to the gov’t to have POWER, nothing more. They enjoy abusing people. These are the people yelling at Deplorables in restaurants. They call themselves Public Servants. They are worse than criminals. So yes I am insulting my past persona and feel liberated. No true Christian can be a gov’t lawyer. Give me a gangland thug, they are better people.

        • mushr45m says:

          Wow. Explains a lot!
          Thanks.
          Hope your wrong and your 100-1 comment means there is 1 good prosecutor for every 100. PDJT says, “Yesssss! I have a chance!”
          Maybe he can find that one.
          …Jessie Lui is not the one.

  94. Rob says:

    If Trump is not tweeting about this, he must have it under control.

    • Tl Howard says:

      It’s not for nothin’ he wrote “The Art of the Deal.”
      Perhaps he feels he has leveraged a good one.

    • Macro says:

      “If Trump is not tweeting about this, he must have it under control.”
      If Liu is proceeding to confirmation, VSGDJT is aware of it and allowing the nomination to proceed.
      Perhaps he is positioning Liu to face questions that will create new swamp leaks and keep the cabal off-balance and on the defensive?
      VSGDJT has Lindsey on a very short leash, keeping him at heel in NH last night.

  95. Who in the FBI was so uninvolved with the coup that they started the investigation of the SSCI leaks, in the first place? This is evidence for open white-hattery taking place within the hallowed black halls of the FBI — I am shocked, shocked I tell you (!) Or was it merely a Warner-Burr-whoever attempt to throw Wolfe to the wolves (apropos, n’est pas?), which would suggest they were feeling the heat getting too close, and in that case, again why? I haven’t read the whole post (much we’ve read here before, only this time it comes with Sundance’s special wrap-it-all-up sauce that makes it really meaty for the first time, for me — still, it takes one’s attention off the main line FBI-Fusion-FISA collusion, DARNDARNDARN), so I will look at the timeline and nodal points more closely, to see if my questions hasve already been answered.
    Also, we’ve got at least two unknown SSA’s to keep straight, the one here and the one on Comey. When are we going to get scorecards, with all of this nailed down “For Dummies” (as we say in the book trade)?

They need to have a professional interrogator depose James Wolfe in private and under oath, immediately followed by deposing Senator Warner (with no time for coordination). Wolfe should not be able to resort to the 5th Amendment, since he has already faced charges for the leak.

  99. Bogeyfree says:

    Sundance – a suggestion.
    Keep this thread on top until the hearing on Thursday so any Senators or people we are emailing can easily find this information.
    Also if these questions are good enough to ask Liu are they also not appropriate with slight modification to ask AG Barr under oath?
    Finally as the key questions on all of this mount coupled with the declass documents you have posted, is there anyway to pin “Key Barr Questions” that you/we formulate somewhere to the front/top of this page for easy reference but also for key individuals we drive to this website to easily find and review?
    Love this thread.
    When you add this to the DOJ actions in the Flynn case, the DOJ actions in the Stone case the DOJ action in the Awan case, the Action in the HRC Server/e-mail case, the DNC Server case, the Julian Assange case, the Wiener Laptop case it speaks VOLUMES IMHO.

    This story wraps up the whole enchilada, including Romney’s infamous vote which now looks like the bared fangs of the Senate. “You, Mr President, may have the voters, but we have the votes.”
    Sundance’s body of work deserves the highest investigative journalism award that exists. So grateful. I wish President Trump would issue Sundance the same award as Rush.

    I sent an email to my Congressional Rep, asking if he would forward today this fact-based research article on to Senators Scott, Sasse, Cotton, and Kennedy. The Senators in my state are both Lefties, so I know there would be no chance of them forwarding the info on to Republican Senators, and I’m sure they have no interest in shining sunlight on the truth. I also sent it to my friend, who has our Representative’s personal cell number. Maybe he can get it though to him, so he can forward it.

      • USAPatriot says:

        There are several federal laws prohibiting the leaking of classified information. Here we’ll focus on one specific statute, Title 18 of the U.S. Code, Section 798. This law prohibits the knowing and willful transmittal of specified classified information to an unauthorized person, but it pertains only to information relating to the communications intelligence systems and activities of the United States. This means a person is in violation of the law if they knowingly and willfully perform any of the following acts involving confidential information:
        communicate, furnish, transmit, or otherwise make it available to an unauthorized person; or
        publish it; or
        use it in a way that’s either (1) prejudicial to the safety or interest of the U.S., or (2) for the benefit of any foreign government to the detriment of the U.S.
        THE PENALTY FOR THIS CRIME IS UP TO 10 YEARS IN PRISON, A LARGE FINE OR BOTH.

    • Next question: ”Ms. Liu, did the DOJ have evidence that SSCI Vice Chairman, Senator Mark Warner aid or even direct SSCI Director James Wolfe to leak the FISA documents?”

    • MJJ says:

      The DOJ needs a Departmental House Cleaning as much as The White House NSC Employees are being Removed. Having the Decades Obama, Bush, Clinton & Bush Hired Appointments is as bad as the Kennedy DOJ with Nepotism of the 1960s.
      Clearly, with all the Terminations, Resignations, Retirements, Demotions & Promotions after so much Wrong Doing these Relationships are Untenable undermining the Fabric the American Enlightenment System of Individual Freedom to Life, liberty & Property without Fair, Balance & Sense of Justice without Due Process Protections.
      No one should be Promoted until All Investigations are Completed. Many current Employees need Suspended until the Senate Judiciary, intelligence & Ethics Committees hold Public Hearings. The time has come to End Absolute Immunity from Prosecutors as well. They must be subjected to the same Standards as Judges & Police both Appearance of Impropriety Standards. Thy have not just crossed the Political Lines they have made the Lines to Bleary, Vague, Arbitrary & Capricious. Even the IG’s are no longer Dependable nor Defensible breaking their own Rules & Feigning Incompetence.
      The Supreme Court needs to step in as well on removing Bar Licenses while enforcing the Appearance of Impropriety Suspensions as the Ultimate Higher Standards required of all Lawyers, especially at the DOJ.

    • guest4ever says:

      I don’t know about that; maybe not, but I think there’s a sizable portion of the country that might just be game for military tribunals. THAT might just be the only way to go.

      • Rigle Gumm says:

        Military tribunals may not be impartial as we think. I do recall that Mickey Weinstein of the group MilitaryReligiousFreedom.org has openly admitted to scouring Facebook pages of our military men and women and attacking those of the Christian Faith. I believe that he went after high ranking officers, in particular. His objective is to get those people to resign. The net effect is to remain in place those people who tend to be agnostic, athiest, muslim, etc. In other words, those military personnel who remain are receptive to the Leftist thought. I thought that this plan, which is basically used everywhere in many variations (for example, selection of potential hires in CFPB), is brilliantly malevolent. So, the people who remain in the military have been culled to an extent with this tactic. Thus, a military tribunal would be compromised to the extent that this tactic has been successful. What I bring to discussion is an opinion and conjecture and I would like a comment on this observation. I hope that I am wrong, frankly.

    • USAPatriot says:

      Does it not infuriate you that there is enough information (like this) in the public domain that you have to ask what the hell the DOJ/FBI are doing? I could prosecute George Soros just from the Judicial Watch newsletters I get and I’m not a lawyer.
      The corruption is so in-your-face but what I really question is who the hell is advising President Trump? How he has kept this woman, a Rosenstein protégé, who let this FISA leaker of Top Secret information off the hook. I once heard recently that the DOJ was worried about a fair trial of the Durham investigation people indicted in Washington, D.C. The prosecution should also be able to get a change in venue just like the person on trial. I don’t believe for one minute a DC Jury would find any of these traitors guilty.
      Of course the REAL story here is Senator Mark Warner asking the aide to leak the documents to his girlfriend. Another question for me is why MY Senator Richard Burr was complicit in this cover up. Good thing he is not running for reelection. Was he covering up for his “friend” the corrupt Senator Warner? The swamp is SO deep, by both sides of the aisle. So disappointed President Trump doesn’t seem to know (or care) about all that Sundance and Judicial Watch uncover. I have posted some of this article on Senator Warner’s and Senator Burr’s Facebook pages and many of my Facebook links. It is all soooo frustrating.

  105. Andy says:

    I have had no doubt that Mark Warner is dirty and corrupt ever since I read about him trying to get a one on one meeting with Steele, who kiboshed the idea. Unless there is other info that we do not know about either the DOJ/FBI/IC knows all about this, OR, they gave Wolfe a light sentence in exchange for testimony, behind closed doors. If it’s the latter then the greasy ones known as Schiff, Warner and Pelosi are sure to go down. I am hoping its the latter, because I don’t think Barr would give Jessie Liu a promotion for covering up crimes. I actually think Barr has a grand scheme. Durham was part one and now, with the addition of his legal confidant Timothy Shea, he has part two nailed down. Shea is going to work with Durham to nail the big fish. Barr said we should see some indictments by late Spring/early Summer and I believe him. The folks they have now are singing like canarys. The will be indicted with plea bargains as the investigation continues. As they get indicted watch the worms like Schiff and Warner squirm. This will go all the way to the top folks. Count on it.

I even want him to pardon General Flynn, Paul Manafort, Roger Stone, Papadopolos, ALL OF THEM, except those who turned on him like his lawyer Cohen and Manafort’s partner. I personally think he should pardon General Flynn NOW, TODAY. None of them deserved this crap by the illegal Obama administration interfering in an election WITH the Russians and Ukraine, then the soft coup after his election. Enough is enough. He needs to pardon all of them an hour after his inauguration January 2021. What I’d give to see Obama and Hillary indicted for their roles in this traitorous behavior.

And with all the LIVE cameras, press and citizen witnesses watching there will be no ability to lie so they will have to tell the truth.

    ALG urges Senate committee to reject Jessie Liu nomination
    February 10, 2020
    https://getliberty.org/2020/02/alg-urges-senate-committee-to-reject-jessie-liu-nomination/
    Feb. 10, 2020, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement urging the Senate Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs Committee to reject the nomination of U.S. Attorney Jessie Liu for Under Secretary for Terrorism and Financial Crimes at the U.S. Treasury:
    “U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia Jessie Liu should not receive a promotion to the extremely important position of Under Secretary for Terrorism and Financial Crimes at the U.S. Treasury. Liu’s tenure at the head of the U.S. Attorney’s office in the District since 2017 has been a disaster, as she was unable to determine the corruption right under her nose at the Justice Department, FBI, CIA, the State Department and the National Security Council.
    “What’s more, in spite of overwhelming evidence that former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn was innocent of perjury charges with exculpatory evidence being withheld by the D.C. prosecutors, Liu is persisting on pursuing this political prosecution to jail Flynn. Even more astonishing is the fact that Liu effectively allowed a Senate Intelligence Committee staffer to walk away with a slap on the wrist for leaking classified information, and minimized the prosecution of a spy ring that had infiltrated the entire email system of the House of Representatives.
    “While I’m confident that Liu has gained many powerful political benefactors for the blind eye she has turned on swamp corruption, she should not be elevated to a position with extraordinary national security implications. Americans for Limited Government urges the Senate Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs Committee to reject her nomination.”

      How is it that this guys sees this, we all see this but AG Barr does not see this?

          It means that as Winston Churchill noted, “truth is so precious that she must always be surrounded with a bodyguard of lies.” Hard to tell right now who is wearing black hats or white hats. Perhaps too, timing is important so as to both control the narrative (media sure won’t) and very importantly, have maximum influence in the 2020 election. Question: whom do you trust?

  119. tav144 says:

    Here is what I just sent to my Senator:

    Dear Senator Shelby,
    I am an Alabama resident voter, and you are my Senator. I thank you for all you do and for voting against the ludicrous and unconstitutional impeachment of our President in an attempt to take away our right to vote for him in 2020. That was a sleazy, crooked thing for them to do. But today, I write to ask you, as a member of the approval committee that will vote on Jessie Liu’s confirmation hearing for Treasury Dept. Undersecretary for Terrorism and Financial Crimes, to PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE as a few pointed questions of her that are VITAL to get to the truth.
    I have watched and waited patiently, as have many other Republican voters, for Justice to be see visibly and openly against those who seem to have orchestrated a soft coup against our duly elected President. What the democrats — really, Socialists/Communists — are doing is a direct threat to our country. The only way to restore confidence in our government, our government leaders, our government institutions, our law enforcement — The only way to restore confidence is to see justice administered FAIRLY to democrat and republican alike….which brings me to my request regarding Jessie Liu. PLEASE ask her questions regarding the following:
    AWAN BROTHERS:
    The manipulated DC legal case surrounding the Awan brothers; and how they escaped full accountability, likely due to need to protect politicians. (House of Representatives) The sweetheart plea deal.
    SSCI SECURITY DIRECTOR JAMES WOLFE:
    The manipulated DC legal case surrounding SSCI Security Director James Wolfe; and how he was allowed to plea only to lying to investigators when the evidence was clear from the outset how he leaked classified information to his paramour journalist.. Again, likely due to the need to protect politicians. (SSCI, Senate) The sweetheart plea deal.
    OBAMA LAWYER GREG CRAIG:
    The manipulated DC legal case surrounding Obama lawyer Greg Craig; and how he escaped accountability for FARA violations by running out the statute of limitations and burying Mueller’s evidence for 18 months. Again, likely due to the need to protect politicians (Obama White House). Sweetheart double standards.
    FMR FBI DEP. DIRECTOR ANDREW MCCABE
    The manipulated DC legal case, a non-filing, surrounding former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe for lying to INSD investigators about his media leaks. Again, likely due to the need to protect the administrative state. Criminal referral (April 19, 2018) — Yet still no indictment.
    All that we the people see, is that time and again it is JESSIE LIU who stands in the way of justice being served and who is sticking her thumb on the scale to help democrats — while republicans and republican advocates are being indicted by a DOJ (Manafort, Flynn, Stone) and harassed unendingly. We have YET to see true justice. I don’t know how long the people can go before it gets crazy but please Senator Shelby, please ask some questions related to the above issues of Ms. Liu. We need to hear her answer some of these questions and if there is ever going to be faith restored in the institutions, we have to have answers.
    Regarding specifically the James Wolfe sweetheart plea deal and specifically choosing NOT to pursue the obvious, i.e., that Wolfe was told by SENATOR WARNER (and/or others on the corrupt SSCI) to leak the FISA application to the news reporter, these questions need to be asked:
    ♦ Did the DOJ or FBI have evidence that SSCI Security Director James Wolfe leaked the Carter Page FISA application to the media?
    ♦ Why was James Wolfe not prosecuted for that leak of classified information?
    (See: https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2020/02/11/the-dc-cover-up-thats-as-big-as-spygate/ )
    Thank you for your time, and I look forward to hearing her answers.
    Sincerely,
    Cheryl Bullard

        Haven’t seen any actual confirmation of that, but it surprised me b/c I always thought it was the NYT themselves that made it up (that they were “anonymous”). I know Paul Craig Roberts also thought “anonymous” was the NYT.

        • vikingmom says:

          That was a valid suspicion at the time…but evidently Joe DiGenova said a few days ago that the White House had identified the person and that they would be fired, or at least removed shortly.

  126. StarSpirit says:

    Excellent journalistic research.
    So it appears…
    NYT was illegally given the Top Secret – 1st Carter Page FISA on 3/17/17 by Sen. Warner’s committee security ofcr Wolfe,
    To use to smear Prez Trump as a “Russian asset” linked to smear of Carter Page as the “Russian spy”.
    Wolfe was arrested by FBI for the above Coup d’Etat action.
    Because Sen Warner, Burr & Feinstein supported Wolfe’s smear leak against Trump of the Carter Page FISA, Wolfe was let free by US DoJ Attorney Liu.
    DoJ Liu is now under review for WHAT reward promotion for her part in the illegal release of the FISA?

  130. Paul Cohen says:

    Either new US Attorney for DC, Timothy Shea, is not nearly as clued in to Deep State shenanigans as we had hoped, or else he let this proceed just as a sting on the Mueller team prosecutors:
    https://thefederalist.com/2020/02/11/mueller-prosecutors-may-have-lied-to-doj-about-stone-prison-sentence-recommendation/#.XkLvOWwiuJA.twitter
    Why would Shea, supposedly AG Barr’s right-hand man, step into the US Attorney role and immediately allow this b.s. on Roger Stone sentencing to proceed? Either Shea and Barr are not the white hats we’ve been hoping for or else they are letting the Mueller team charge further toward the cliff in order to strengthen the eventual public animus against them?????
    But DOJ is not supposed to do these things according to propaganda needs, but according to “JUSTICE” demands…. why would such an extreme sentencing recommendation be allowed to go forward under Barr/Shea oversight?????

    • Hasn’t Shea only been there for a very short period of time? He could be acting on the recommendations of those already there.

      • Paul Cohen says:

        Yes he only just started in the US Attorney role, but he has been working closely with AG Barr for a long time. Yes, the extreme sentencing rec is clearly coming from the Mueller team holdovers, but that does not mean Shea had to let it be filed with the court. He could have pushed back internally (and even over-ruled his subordinates if they could not be persuaded by him) IF he were really opposed to the rec.
        My point remains, either Shea allowed the sentencing rec to be filed with the court because he supports it, or ELSE he has some other strategy in place such as allowing the Mueller drones to over-play their hand. Other possibilities exist, such as Shea was not paying attention, and/or simply otherwise occupied in his first hours on the job….. but IF speculations were at all correct that Shea was being installed by Barr as US Attorney for DC to pursue reformed policies then this is a very strange way to show that as one of his first acts in office.

    “How could the institutions of the United States government survive the publicity of members within the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence conspiring with foreign and domestic actors to eliminate the President of the United States?”
    I will answer that. The institutions WILL survive. It is not the institutions that are flawed or corrupt, but the corrupt individuals who have found their way into them.
    Any courageous individuals who would take on this corruption must understand throughout their efforts that those institutions can be saved ONLY by exposing all of the coup plotters and hiding none of their schemes. The corrupt actors must all be exposed, even into the Senate if that is where it leads, so that they may be removed, either by prosecution or political defeat.
    Begin on Thursday. Ask the questions.

  133. Paul Cohen says:

    This may be a good explanation: Mueller holdovers using the sentencing rec to force Barr’s hand, try to expose him to the MSM/leftist onslaught before Barr/Durham are ready to act??? Try to prejudice the MSM and public against Barr when/if Barr pushes back against the Mueller team now:

    Outstanding research of great importance: this is why Sundance is respected and a must read on deep state criminality.
    If you read nothing else in this report, read the sentencing reply memo by the FBI dissenters on Wolfe’s slap on the wrist. You will get some much needed respect for the FBI investigators, and note they do not use the phrase ”lacked candor” to describe the behavior of Wolf. They say LIE and Repeatedly LIED regarding his responses, written and oral.
    Superb work by Sundance to link this together.

    My Senator is on the committee and I have emailed him and requested that he ask the questions. We’ll see if he wants to be re-elected or if he is asking to have a primary opponent next time out.

    Personally, I’m sick of the $hit. It is absolutely time for term limits and it is absolutely time for every member of Congress to release full financial statements—not only income taxes, but property acquisition by the member and immediate family, documentation of all assets (stocks, cash, savings, IRA/401k, etc) and a complete record of all travel.

      Amen and Amen!! It is suspicious enough how members of Congress go from broke to millionaires in just a few short years but that is usually a very small part of their financial story. It is the legislation slipped into bills that benefit companies in which their spouse/children/siblings have controlling interest, it is all of the book contracts and board positions given to members of Congress AND their family members, the lobbyist “gigs’ after leaving office, the insider deals on stocks (how many family members of Congress critters have been able to turn $1K investment into cattle futures into $100K by “just reading” the Wall Street Journal like Hillary Clinton did?)
      It is career politicians, of BOTH parties, it is career bureaucrats, who somehow manage to retire with millions after earning >100K per year, it is members of the media who report the “right” stories (or ignore the “wrong” stories), it is the SJW activists who oversee million dollar budgets that never seem to solve the problems they promise to fix but who always seem to be able to deliver votes (legit or NOT) for their chosen Congresscritters!!

    Maybe I missed it in SD’s narrative, but didn’t James Wolfe swear to call ALL members of the SSCI for his defense if indicted on the leak charge?

    • The fate of those involved in the ESPIONAGE and seditious conspiracy of a coup is actually a very simple “destination” for conspirators in that special “theater of operations” into which they foolishly ventured. Espionage is a thoroughly dangerous Machiavellian gambit, an activity governed by no “rules”. So every last subversive seditious conspiracy participant should be liquidated. They should not be engaged in any “discussion” or debate about what were they thinking. It truly doesn’t matter what lies they would tell seeking to avoid the grim reaper that is karma come to call. Give them the standard CIA agent whose cover is blown and security liability realized, agency denied and no one ever refused “standard retirement package”.

  150. minnesotamike55 says:

    Well, let’s assume Trump is well informed but given the situation it’s not his priority right now. Let it go, wait for Durham and come back to it later. I think something is up given the rumor of arrests and the sentencing changes for Flynn and Stone.
    I believe Trump and associates have gone on hard offense now that there is no ongoing legal crap to throw in a wrench. I would also caution about making accusations anti Barr. If you try to put yourself in his head you would see that he is a honorable man who wants to do right. The problem is he just can’t wrap his head around all the plotting and corruption. He shakes his head and says, “that just can’t be true” because he can not fathom that anyone would actually do some of these things. This attitude likely makes him very skeptical (note his recent Ukraine comments) until the hard evidence hits and that takes reliable underlings and time.

  151. Tom Hansen says:

    We know that Richard Burr, Chairman of the SSCI is anti-Trump and needs to be accountable for his involvement in the coup as well. But, we know, in addition to Warner, that Pelosi, Schumer, and Adam Schiff are part of the gang of eight and have known of this cover up among other cover ups.
    Their involvement of the coup has been very heavy handed.
    But what concerns me the most is on the Republican side of the Gang of Eight. We know about Burr, but what did McConnell, McCarthy, and Collins know, and particularly Paul Ryan prior to McCarthy. What were their roles during the coup attempt. Were they able to communicate with Trump their concerns regarding the intelligence they received? Or did any of them stay silent and let the President dangle during the Russian hoax, Mueller investigation, and the Ukrainian based impeachment hoax?

    • All the Republcans on the SSCI had to have know. Also, Paul Ryan probably knew but somehow I do not think Collins would know and not sure about McCarthy.

      • dd_sc says:

        Rep. Collins is Judiciary Committee so he is not Gang of 8. McCarty became Minority Leader in 2018 so the coup was already happening when he got there; he was never briefed by Brennan.
        Rep. Nunes appears to be the odd man out from the 2016 Gang of 8. He was quickly brought up on an ethics violation and had to recuse himself for a while. Speaker Ryan didn’t elevate the next Republican in line to be interim chairman while Nunes was recused.

        • Jan says:

          I truly believe that Devin Nunes was not given the same briefing as McConnell, Feinstein, Reid, Schiff, Burr, Warner, Pelosi & Ryan in August-September 2016. Lying Brennan testified that he gave his briefing to each of the Gang of 8 individually.
          Reid immediately turned around and wrote a letter to Comey demanding an investigation of the Trump campaign.
          After the election in November, Feinstein wanted off the Committee and moved over to the Senate Judiciary Committee. I don’t think she wanted anything to do w/Intel members & the coup.

          • dd_sc says:

            I think you’re giving Feinstein too much credit. I think her move to the Judiciary Committee was a lateral move to get a member of the conspirators on that committee ahead of any investigations – implies the Judiciary Committee was clean.
            One of her first actions was to leak the Glen Simpson closed door testimony. Who knows what else her staff was doing.

      It’s similar to the Nazis and their “marching towards the Fuhrer,” they all are anti-Trump, they all are complicit, they all want Trump removed, and they don’t have to have deeply philosophical discussions in order to advance their agendas or their attempts to complete Trump’s removal from office. You ask me how I know, my gut tells me so, that and “intelligence guided by experience,” to quote Rush.

    • islandpalmtrees says:

      The Gang-Of-Eight involvement in the coup for me has been clear for sometime. One of the more major tells, is when we knew the CIA was actually involved in the coup, since Peter Strzok (FBI/CIA) is a double agent, came to light. You see the law says, the Gang-Of-Eight had to be told about CIA involvement within our borders. After that we knew or should I say learned about Eric Ciaramella. Who is also CIA. If the CIA agents knew, then the CIA director knew.

      • islandpalmtrees says:

        Side note: I am still waiting for Carter Page’s complete involvement to be revealed since he too is CIA.

      • islandpalmtrees says:

        I see know reason, why the rules that applied to Strzok don’t also applied to Carter Page. So the Gang-Of-Eight must have known about Carter Page?

        • Jan says:

          Not necessarily. The FBI didn’t get a FISA warrant on Carter until 10/21/2016. Carter didn’t join the campaign until March or so in 2016. Carter never met or spoke with candidate Trump. His involvement is more he went Russia for a conference in July 2016.
          He was involved with the FBI/DOJ in getting 3 Russians indicted out of operations in 2013 or 2014–2 were tried & convicted on his testimony; the other one was not tried because he escaped back to Russia. The trial on the 2 Russians ended about March 2016.
          His other involvements seems to evolve around Stefan Halper–attending a conference, discussions w/him and emails. And as we know Halper is a CIA operative, mainly operating out of the UK. (He was paid $1 million by DOD over 2015-16)
          Carter wrote a letter to Comey in September that he was hearing rumors he was being surveilled and asked to come in and talk with the FBI. Comey never responded. In October 2016, he wrote another letter that he sent out to some intel people.
          He is hard to pin down in an interview. The latest revealing that he is/was a CIA operative has yet to be analyzed in any writings I’ve seen in the last couple of weeks, but then I’ve had a lot to read lately.

    • Issy says:

    Mr President, you have the momentum and the public is on your side.
    Fire Barr and Wray, install temp AG Rudy and Sheriff Clark as temp FBI Director. Give them a squad of Marshals each.
    Day one: AG Rudy, RICO the whole DOJ down to SDNY, sort out the innocent later
    Director Clark, fire seventh floor and all field managers. Make them reapply for their jobs and drug test.
    Day two: AG Rudy and Director Clark, DECLASS (reason for marshals loaded to the teeth).
    Day Three: Rico Politicians and relatives involved with foreign aid fraud and money laundering
    Day four: Wolverine pack audits IRS and Treasury.
    Day five: 3 am raids on all corporate media owners and staff (rico would be easy,all on video)
    Day six: George Soros and children,strip citizenship and deport to Hungary( they will know what to do)
    Day Seven: Rest, Mar-a-lago

        I’m all for getting rid of Wray, and I LOVE the idea of Clarke being involved. (You all have probably noticed I wanted him as VP 😉 ) But I’m not yet convinced Barr isn’t gonna do his job… thanks largely to the fact he’s got Durham working with him. We’ll see…

        • Deplorable Incisor says:

          Barr and Durham have had plenty of time to start rolling people up.
          If it hasn’t started by now then I fully expect the following:
          There will be another press conference laying out all of the crimes that have been committed, at the end of that press conference we will be told that none of it is actionable or would/can be prosecuted because of this/that/some other statute/policy/agreement.
          If Barr/Durham were going to do something, it would have already started.
          Right now I’m figuring that the October surprise will be zero prosecutions in an attempt to depress the vote for Trump. That is really the only play they have left that doesn’t kick off the 2nd American Revolution.

      It’s a miracle POTUS has survived this onslaught! The best and brightest scumbags have done everything they can to take him out and maybe I’m wrong but isn’t POTUS the only target who didn’t get taken down?
      I suspect most of the GOP senators would rather see him gone but POTUS is too popular, too effective, and too indefatigable. I suspect their plan is to contain him ,as much as possible as it is to contain Donald Trump, and wait until 2024. Then they can resume their stealing without worrying about consequences. Nevertheless, I think Donald Trump is making serious change that will last decades including Blexit….and how we’ve all been scammed.

Nikki Haley has been suggested as president come 2024.

          • Deplorable Incisor says:

            Nikki Haley is not eligible to be President.

            • xode says:

              That’s questionable. She was born in the U.S. and it’s only case law and not the U.S. Constitution that claims she’s not a natural born citizen. Further, the corruption in the fraudulent courts, in the form of an aristocracy of attorneys that control those and their overall track record in suppressing accountability for other corruption, far exceeds the spygate and gang of 8 corruption that’s the topic of this thread. In any event, even 2 full terms of Trump won’t be near enough to clean up the corruption. MAGA definitely needs to continue with a successor to Trump after he terms out, and also needs to replace all of the Dems and RINOs in CONgress in the upcoming elections.

                  Now your argument here appears valid just as the original argument of her being ineligible due to citizenship isn’t. You also make the critical point that MAGA needs to be very careful in who it supports as Trump’s successor. However, there definitely needs to be someone to take over when Trump terms out as 8 years is nowhere near enough time to get that DC swamp cleaned out.

        I don’t know. I think many of us are going to be asking about foreign aid and which government official’s families are getting a cut. More needs to be divulged about spouses and children serving on boards and employed by lobbyist. Insider trading appears to be a problem too. I thought that had been stopped. I guess they quietly did away with that rule. Pak money being transferred to the candidate for lifestyle enhancement. I didn’t know they could do that either.
        I doubt we can ever catch on to all their scams, but there are things that can be done to stop some of the corruption. If it can’t be stopped, exposing the graft seems to bring an end to some careers.

    • Bogeyfree says:

      THIS is why IMO PT needs to have Sidney Powell as his WH Presidential Appointment whereby she is Special Liaison (think Justice Czar but a good one) between the WH and DOJ.
      She sits in on ALL Barr and Durham meetings along with all Barr and DA meeting (especially Treasury)
      PT also gives her the authority to declass any document related to:
      Russia Collusion
      the Dossier
      FISA Abuse
      FBI Contractor Abuse
      Uranium One
      the Hammer Program
      HRC unsecured server
      the DNC hack
      Seth Rich murder
      impeachment fraud
      Ukraine corruption and alleged money laundering of US taxpayer monies.
      She can read and review all of this info unredacted and reports back to the President. She in essence is Americans MAGA Insurance Policy.
      Yes, in the end AG Barr and Wray may chose to quit and if they do so be it.
      PT simply follows the agency hierarchy policy of next person up so there is no issue with Senate confirmation or crying from the left, as PT is by the book!
      But Sidney stays in place.
      Ask yourself, if Sidney was in this role how long do you think it would take her to get to these unanswered questions and so many more?
      1. Has the DOJ deposed the two U1 WB yet?
      2. Has the DOJ deposed Assange yet?
      3. What happened to the Wiener Laptop and the evidence on it?
      4. What happened to all 33k HRC emails that the NSA has?
      5. What happened to Mifsud’s phone and the information on it?
      6. What happened to the 47 Hammer Hard Drives that Montgomery turned into the FBI in 2015?
      7. Was all the evidence gathered by the FBI on the Seth Rich murder turned over to Judicial Watch and Ty Clevenger’s as their FOIA requested?
      8. What happened to the Rudy’s Ukraine evidence he turned over to Pompeo?
      9. What happened to the Lindsey request to Pompeo on turning over all Biden communications with Ukraine back in 2016?
      10. Did they ever trace the serial numbers on the PapaD money he was given?
      11. How long have they known Mifsud and Halper were ALWAYS western agents?
      12. Why hasn’t a joint investigation between the DOJ and Ukrainian Government not begun considering we have a treaty with them to jointly investigate corruption?
      Sidney comes with 100% trust by the American people where transparency, truth and justice is not just words.
      With Sidney in place the benefits are:
      1. PT gets a second set of eyes and opinion on all things.
      2. PT and the American people get peace of mind as we TRUST Sidney and with her on the job accountability, truth and justice can’t be far behind.
      3. The investigations continue and the odds of evidence getting lost, misplaced or overlooked is reduced greatly IMO.
      4. It gives Sidney a running start into 2021 and your second term.
      5. It gets the Ukraine investigation moving sooner than later.
      So if Sidney as the “Justice Czar” between the WH and the DOJ (Barr) works like I think it can, PT could do the same with Rudy as the “Law Enforcement Czar” between the WH and the FIB (Wray)
      And the best part, no Senate Confirmation is required!
      PT could make this happen with a stroke of his pen within 24 hrs.
      IMO it’s Pure Trump Genius!

    BREAKING EXCLUSIVE: Deep State Brings In Big Gun US ATTORNEY to Defy Request for Evidentiary Hearing on Previously Hidden Peter Strzok and Lisa Page Emails on Seth Rich

    Between Sundance and this article everything is starting to come into focus a little bit more. The evidence really is pointing to a pre planned coup that was set up from the very beginning. Russia had nothing to do with it. And trump knows. That’s why he asked Ukraine about crowdstrike. And I love Sundance’s line “The answer to those questions could create an explosion strong enough to split the atom within the swamp”….. split the atom indeed. We just need the tipping point to get these senators to start asking the questions.

  171. islandpalmtrees says:

    When everything out of DOJ, Rod Rosenstein’s mouth became Bull Sh*t for me. “when he said, he did not read the FISA application on President Trump before signing it”. My committee read it.

  172. rcogburn says:

    Outstanding work! From the start, everything has been run through the IC establishment: DOJ, CIA, ODNI, NSC, HSCI and SSCI. Warner and Schiff are senior coup principals, who run the Congressional end of the operation, like Brennan ran the CIA; Comey the FBI, Clapper, then Coats the ODNI; Yates; then Rosenstein the DOJ; McMaster the NSC (where DOD and State loop in).
    Burr and Ryan are/were their Republican co-conspirators on the Gang of 8. Pelosi, Shumer, and McConnell were, I suspect, fully aware yet kept at enough distance for deniability. When Nunes became a problem, they (i.e. Ryan) forced his recusal from his own committee for “disclosing classified information,” then slapped him with ethics charges.
    None of the coup principals are still in their jobs, except for those in Congress. They have to be voted out, but they can also be exposed, as SD is doing.
    We know Warner’s fingers are all over Derispaska; all over the Steele dossier; all over the Wolfe FISA leaks; and all over Assange. Coincidence or not, Vault 7 was also released in March, 2017. Also during this time frame, Warner was pushing a bill to take away POTUS’ control over NSC staffing and give it to Congress and the IC –

    http://theconservativetreehouse.files.wordpress.com/2017/01/congressional-intelligence-gang-of-eight-2017.jpg

    (*** means they knew about the Crossfire Hurricane Operation and Perer Strzok. ***).
    It is also important to understand that nothing ever happens without these eight members of congress being briefed on the occurrence. If the United States are carrying out a covert CIA mission in Benghazi, these representative would know about and have approved. If the United States is carrying out a covert CIA effort in Syria, these eight members would have to approve.

    The Gang of Eight are briefed on classified intelligence matters by the Executive Branch and are responsible for Congressional oversight of all Intelligence Agencies. They are the “Checks and Balances” for the Intelligence aspect of our government. Anything intelligence-related must be shown to this committee. If there is a U.S. covert operation, these members know of it and approved it. It is a very powerful committee.

    Anything intelligence-related must be shown to this committee. Perhaps, an unwilling spy “Carter Page”.

    That’s all fine and dandy, but Trump just withdrew her name!??

  193. jstert says:

    i would have preferred to question liu under oath first, then yank her nomination and fire her.

  194. AIM says:

    Trump just pulled the nomination for her.

  195. Kay Sadeeya says:

    Maybe someone knew the Senate would ask Liu some awkward questions. There might have been an arangement to not air out too much Deep State activities. Just saying.

  196. rjones99 says:

    Just read this again. A couple of minor points;
    1/ Liu and Rosenstein will argue they didnt want to collect proof classified doc was in possession of journalists.
    2/ Whoever released that FOIAed FISA’s helped the SCCI conspirators. There would be no other reason to release it than to arm the media.
    3/ Anyone approved by the SCCI is suspect of being a traitor. I would think Trump should reappoint all without Senate advice/consent and challenge them to declare a constitutional crisis. Litigating the issue would be interesting.

  197. Fembottler says:

    And just like that Trump pulls the nomination….

  198. Jimmy Jack says:

    Great post SD.
    1. I hope this lays to rest for many exactly what kind of swamp creature Rosenstein is.
    2. Is it even possible for the United States Dept. of Justice to conduct a trial where members of the Gang of Eight were implicated in the activity?
    I’d suggest no and that military tribunals may indeed be necessary. That said I don’t know how I’d trust this either as we have seen how many of those Generals are corrupt and working against Trump – Petreus, Jones, Kelly & Mattis come to mind immediately.
    3. How could the institutions of the United States government survive the publicity of members within the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence conspiring with foreign and domestic actors to eliminate the President of the United States?
    Some of those institutions will fall – and they should. They are working against the American people and therefore have no right to exist.
    What a timeline folks. Still praying for the exposure of wrong doing and a restoration for the country. God be with us.

    incredible how good sundance is getting at writing years worth of analysis succinctly in a quick read. great service to us.
    not seeing how this doesnt end up in hangings and if it doesnt it ends up in guns and countless hits and murders. exposing all
    is our only hope.

    Wow this is Pulitzer level stuff…kudos

    • jello333 says:

      Yeah, and only for about the 5th time since I arrived here early 2012. Lots of things in life aren’t “fair”… and Sundance not having a few Pulitzers is definitely one of them.

  202. Dave Huff says:

    At what point does it become treason?

    • Don L says:

      Maybe way back it already was? The question now is, when will it be “called’ what it is, treason?

    • CountryDoc says:

      It cannot effectively become treason unless/until a critical mass of people of the Republic value their republic enough not only to lay down their lives, fortunes, and sacred honor for it, but also value it enough to demand the life of those wolf in sheeps clothing citizens who try to take it away from us.
      It can be treason on paper, but it is not really treason until We the People are ready to eliminate those who try to steal the Republic.

  203. Terry Gilmour says:

    When will we get to Rudy Contreras and to Joe Pientka? I’m anxious to see how their “crimes” play out and their “escapes” from prosecution are facilitated.

  204. Corruption is a cancer that will eventually kill the host, but the cure can be as equally deadly.
    I believe Trump has resisted a full-on response to this because he does not see a decimated government as making America great again.
    In the end, they may give him no other choice.

  205. John Galted says:

    Wow this is amazing research and actual deep dive journalism. I nominate Sundance for a Pulitzer!

  206. PatternSeerPatriot says:

    And I share and share and share and nobody sees it. Maybe I should print copies and go stand at a busy intersection? Beyond frustrated.

  207. GTOGUY says:

    I personally think that AG Barr should not be giving interviews regarding any Spygate or any ongoing DOJ investigations. Especially regarding Ukraine information gathering or anything related to Giuliani. That is what sets the press and the Democrats off to call for his recusal. Just start indicting them and post the indictments on the DOJ website or give a press conference on them when they are released.

  208. Rodney Short says:

    Bravo Sundance you brought alot out into the light.

  209. This stinks worse than Hillary’s diaper.

  210. Michal Klein says:

    How is it possible that Senator Mark Warner was allowed a vote on impeachment? If the Senate is considered a jury, how is someone intimately connected to Russiagate allowed on that jury, what kind of justice/oversight system is this???

    • vladdy says:

      I remember hearing a clip or hearing about a clip, maybe last summer (and cannot recall where), but it has stuck with me since…It was Mark Warner, well-oiled at some gathering, speaking about “You ain’t seen nothing yet”—and “There’s stuff going on here that would blow everybody away if it came out.”
      Odd, I don’t know if I read it or heard someone on a talk show quoting him, but that quote was so distinctive, and I was already so caught up in what was happening, that everytime I’ve heard or seen Warner’s name since, I have thought about that quote.
      Maybe someone else remembers.

  211. james lee says:

    Problem not addressed is that Barr as Director of CNN/TimeWarner thru late 2018 is conflicted and has liability for actions of CNN during the 2016-2018 period which means he is a limited hangout kabuki cover-up master in league with the deep state. Further he has liability and is conflicted from his law firm’s representation of Jeffrey Epstein and his father’s personal relationship with Jeffrey Epstein. This explains why James Comey’s daughter was the lead prosecutor on the Epstein case and why she looked the other way when all of the video cam evidence from the Bureau of Prisons disappeared and in exchange its THE ONLY REASON to explain why Barr/DOJ has not prosecuted James Comey….

  212. MagicTwanger says:

    Perhaps it was discovered that one of the senators on the Banking Committee was preparing to ask the very question you mentioned, and that was why Liu’s nomination was withdrawn.

    • Robert Corrado says:

      I would like nothing better than put these people on jail but it’s not going to happen. U can display all the evidence etc. But it isn’t going to mean crap.
      All of the actors will continue as they have and the America people will gave no voice as usual. It’s a sad state of affairs when the people who could prosecute is of the same ilk of those who committed these crimes. Barr will do nothing because he is in the same country club with the rest of those who committed crimes.

  214. whoseyore says:

    Bill Barr,
    Just so you know…..WE KNOW.
    Just take each and every ‘we’ on this site and multiply it times at least 10 because we talk within our families. Now, also know that there are other sites who are sharing Sundance’s information. I just saw this entire thing on another website that gave Sundance credit.
    It is time to stop….the American people have a right to have the president we choose. Not the president elected officials choose, but we the American people. Come clean, let’s power wash all of the dirt out of all of the crevices.
    It is the least you can do and you will be held a hero in the eyes of the American people (also known as the silent majority).
    Trust me, none of us want this to get ugly, but this is our country and it is all that we have and all that we have to leave our children.
