Barr’s “Outside Prosecutors” and the FISC Sequestration Agreement…

When the FISA Court responded to the DOJ Inspector General report in December and January 2020 they requested an action plan from the DOJ and FBI to respond to the issues raised about misrepresentations to the court.

The DOJ/FBI replied to the FISA Court admitting the last two FISA renewals (April, June ’17) used against Carter Page were insufficiency predicated while withholding opinion on the original application (Oct ’16) and first renewal (Jan ’17).

To address the consequences of fraudulently obtained FISA warrants the DOJ and FBI informed the court they would begin a process to “sequester” all collected evidence from all four FISA warrants. [FISA COURT LINK]

Sequestering the evidence is essentially a search for what investigative material the FISA warrants were used to obtain; ie. the search for the fruit of the poisoned tree; and then a review of all DOJ/FBI cases that may have utilized that investigative material.

In late January the DOJ contacted the FISA court and asked for an extension to the deadline.  The FISA court granted an extension until February 5th [LINK]  The response from the DOJ has not yet been declassified or released by the FISC for public review.

However, with recent media reporting of AG Barr using “outside prosecutors” to review current, former and ongoing cases, it simply makes sense this ‘outsider’ effort is part of the DOJ/FBI sequestration review.

If you consider that several DOJ offices may be involved with the material under review, including the Southern District of New York; The Eastern District of New York; The Eastern District of Virginia; The Washington DC District, and even Main Justice itself; it makes sense that outside DOJ personnel would be needed for this review.

Additionally, all of the various FBI field offices who may have used the FISA authorizations as the underpinning evidence to gain separate Title-1 and/or Title-3 warrants, wiretaps or National Security Letters, in their various investigative cases would also need to be reviewed.   This is an aspect the media is not discussing while they write opinions about AG Bill Barr bringing in outside DOJ attorneys.

The media are framing the use of outside attorneys as Bill Barr working on behalf of President Trump to undermine current and former prosecutions.  However, understanding the FISC order requiring the sequestration effort, the use of outsiders is absolutely necessary.

The same U.S. Attorneys, prosecutors and FBI agents who used evidence gathered from the FISA warrants cannot be the same attorneys, agents and prosecutors making decisions about what parts of the warrants were used to gather evidence and how each part of any case was assembled by the use therein.  It is a simple matter of a conflict of interest.

Additionally, the Robert Mueller team of FBI investigators and special counsel prosecutors certainly used the fraudulently obtained FISA warrants as part of their investigative evidence collection.   Common sense would tell us this had to be the case or the FBI and Mueller team would not have requested renewals of the FISA warrant.

If the FBI & Special Counsel were not using the FISA warrant(s) to capture information, they would not have needed them renewed.  Despite media spin to the contrary, the simple truth of renewals holding investigative value is evident in the renewal itself (ie. common sense).

Under this rather extensive effort to find exactly which investigations -over the course of three years- were touched directly, or indirectly, by the four FISA warrants; and/or which investigative paths may have been influenced downstream or enhanced -by varying degrees of importance- by evidence stemming from the FISA warrants; a reasonable person could see how AG Bill Barr would need to put a team together to retrace the investigative steps and make the sequestration determinations.

Obviously, for reasons of biased intent, corporate left-wing media would like to ignore why outside prosecutors are needed under this framework.  Ignored in part because honest reporting would require an admission the FISA warrants were fraudulently obtained; and in part because the left-wing media have never informed the public of the DOJ/FBI sequestration effort in the first place.  Likely more than half the country has no idea the DOJ and FBI have been told to go find the material.

There have been numerous articles, thousands of words, and endless hours of pundit protestations about Bill Barr using outside DC lawyers to review all of the previous DOJ Attorney activities; yet not a single time have they ever acknowledged the originating order from the FISA court requiring the DOJ/FBI to conduct the review.   Imagine that?

New York Times – Mr. Barr has also installed a handful of outside prosecutors to broadly review the handling of other politically sensitive national-security cases in the U.S. attorney’s office in Washington, the people said. The team includes at least one prosecutor from the office of the United States attorney in St. Louis, Jeff Jensen, who is handling the Flynn matter, as well as prosecutors from the office of the deputy attorney general, Jeffrey A. Rosen. (more)

Lastly, perhaps within this process we can finally get an answer as to what legal justification Robert Mueller and the Special Counsel team used in order to gain access to all of the Trump transition team communications; which included attorney-client privileged material.

This issue from late 2017 was ignored by the mainstream media at the height of their willful blindness toward any corruption within the Mueller team:

      Power is a powerful aphrodisiac. Abusing power and grabbing on to powers never meant to be in their hands has been an age old problem. The lack of oversight due to the very nature of how these FISC operations were set up spells trouble. Unscrupulous people never have problems stepping outside their regulations and rules for their own self importance. Add in the globalist movement having goals at cross purposes to our way of government, it isn’t a shock to see this could be widespread and grow rapidly.

        As Obama’s judicial hacks are circling wagons and preparing the latest paragraph in The Insurance Policy, will AG Barr pull a Sessions, cave and promise to recuse from all things Coup?

        And what, pray tell, is Mitt Romney up to? He got himself captured in a photo lunching with The Insurance Policy guarantor, Peter Strzok. No coincidence or lucky ‘get’ by some photographer. It was staged. Mitt didn’t smile for the camera but he was grinning ear to ear at Peter. Maybe he was just excited and happy because Lisa was joining them later?

          Barr has no reason or cause to recuse.
          Sessions had a political relationship with Trump. See 28 CFR 45.2 for the meaning and significance of that.
          The same argument that Session did not have to recuse, that counterintelligence investigations are not germane to recusal, also supports the argument that there was no basis for appointment of a special counsel. That appointment “requires” the presence of an articulable criminal basis.
          The press is hell bent on destruction of the republic. The public is ill-served. All of these points are basic law – juast as “the informant” in the recent impeachment fiasco is not a whistleblower is an elementary point of law.

            The OLC advised Sessions to recuse because of his involvement with the Trump campaign. The narrative became Trump/Russia collusion. That initial investigation into Sessions was alleged to be about finding if Sessions had an improper association with the Russian Foreign Minister. That helped cement the collusion story right along with Flynn’s phone call with the same Russian.

            Sessions was sidelined. Flynn was indicted. The traitors at the DOJ went whole hog.

      What is avoided by all Media is not asking the One Question and calling for an investigation. Why DOJ, NSA, & FBI Counter Intelligence Units never Seized the DNC Computers once informed of a Criminal Hacking? If there is No Crime Scene there can’t be a FISA Warrant?

      The Crime Scene Investigator Roles are very different from how it’s portrayed on TV Media. FBI Counter Intelligence Real-life Crime Scene Investigators don’t single-handedly collect and analyze all the evidence especially in regard to National Security since 911 Patriot Act? They question witnesses and suspects, and start to identify the Perpetrators to unravel the many aspects involved in a crime. Until that question is asked over and over how other Investigations can happen when there is no Crime Scene Investigation by Outside Authorities not DNC Computer Experts that were American-Russian too?

      The Hacking of the DNC is still the Center of all Investigations but no one whispers about it anymore? No Crime Scene No Crime?

    They say we cannot as a country handle truth revealed.

    Regarding the state of things, and whether or not our country is “strong enough” to survive discovering how many people have sought and are seeking to take it down:

    All one has to do is watch “Band of Brothers” or “The Pacific,” and read books about those subjects. Our chance to listen to the men of my Daddy’s generation is about gone.

    Anyway, watch the episode about Bastogne, or Guadalcanal. Imagine the courage and guts these Men had during that time. We call them Men — because they were 1000 times more Men than any of these pantywaists trying to destroy our America. And then realize these Men were about 20-22 years old.

    I could easily imagine a long line of these pantywaists being held for a time at a point, and then allowed to approach a point on a wall, offered a cigarette and perhaps a blindfold, and a pat on the little punkin head while someone tied their hands behind their back. The pantywaists will gasp as thousands of ghosts missing arms and legs and halves of faces take aim with an old M1 or a .45 or maybe just a sharp trench knife.

    It is our hope this scene replays every night as the pantywaists drift off to sleep.

    We can and will survive whatever needs to be survived, you gutless tie-wearing soulless shells resembling humanity.

    At this point, our saving grace is simply knowing that your spineless lives are devoid of joy, befitting those who only seek to destroy. You will never know the twinkle in the eye exhibiting the spirit of a Living God in the strangers you meet because you cannot recognize what you deny. And while you may control the cesspool inside DC, it is in fact your prison and your hell that you fear to go outside of.

    In the middle of the night when you wake, you cannot forget this one piece of simple math — you are afraid, and we are not.

    Good luck each night. The ghosts of our Fathers will visit. They tormented better men than you before they started shaving regularly.

    Your days are lofty but miserable.

    Your end will be fitting for those who never knew honor.

        It’s not that the country can’t handle it, in terms of understanding, in terms of even eventual forgiveness.

        What CANNOT be ignored is the immediate impact these reveals will have on the world’s perception of us. Some of our enemies may think that we are vulnerable, as we fight among ourselves, figuring out who did what, when, and why. The acrimony will be thick. Groups like Antifa will not sit idly by. There may be civil unrest and disobedience, even violent.

        Will China see our weakness and move on Taiwan? Will Iran try anything more bold? Will Russia take any more land? What about North Korea? And the stock market? Banks get spooked by their own SHADOW, imagine how freaked out they’ll be when it is revealed that our government is corrupt to the bone?

        Why do you think PDJT has spent so much time early on shoring up our economy, shoring up our military, and shoring up our judiciary? Because he knows what an impact this reveal is going to have.

        It’s not going to be pretty, as we continue down the path into the briar patch.

        Pray to know that God is in control. Love is the only thing that can conquer fear and hatred. We must love our enemies as ourselves.

          Your points are well taken and the repercussions that you mention may happen. However, we cannot be paralyzed by the “might”, “may” or “could” of events. What happens, happens. A stand has to be taken, come hell or high water, otherwise we lose the country as we’ve known it and become another country that we don’t want to see. It’s way too bad that so many of our fellow citizens are clueless and, in fact, are unwittingly supporting sedition. These people will not be swayed, as they rely on the media narrative for their beliefs… and that’s the root of our problem, the media.

            I didn’t say we should be paralyzed by anything, but plans and preparations MUST be considered, and my point was simply that.

            I believe PDJT has been systematically strengthening the economy and the military to be ready to withstand the “shock to the system” that is coming. Because it IS coming, and it WILL BE a shock.

        Yes, these are my words. They are based on my experience of meeting many people who exhibit that twinkle, and I have seen their works.

        I am fully convinced there is a Living God who acts through us if we are willing — many times we do not even know He has acted through us. That’s why God is God. On a good day, when we are centered and paying halfway-decent attention, I believe we participate in God’s Plan. Many people here in this group are participating whether they know it or not, as crusty old codgers like me read some mighty good words on these pages.

        I have met quite a few (many overly-educated) who think this idea of God’s Plan is all hokum, but I can only extend prayers for them.

        I am no better than any other man, but I am convinced by what I have seen.

        I am a mechanical and electrical troubleshooter, and every day I witness how a lot of small things working together in harmony make mighty powerful things happen. I am astounded that we get to participate the way we do in God’s Grand Engine, and how often it is such a small thing we do that has such a great affect on others.

        We never know who is having a terribly difficult time of things, and sometimes a kind word or good handshake, or hand on another person’s shoulder of encouragement can make all the difference in the world to them. I know it has for me in the past, and I have faith God uses me to do the same for others. I don’t have to know the affect, I just have to listen for guidance. It’s God’s Grand Engine. I’m just a little tiny piece of it.

        This kind of thinking didn’t register quite well enough until my Mama forgot who I was, and again when Daddy died suddenly. When my world crashed down, the Lord moved through small but important acts done by others — often just a kind word on a terribly dark day.

        Why did God use that person to lift me up? So that I could later use the pain of my experiences to be of service to others. An old man told me: “the training was terrible, but the work required it.”

        I have found that when I’m willing, God uses me. I may not even know it. I don’t have to know — it’s God’s Grand Engine.

        When I’m not willing and prayerful, my day usually goes off the rails. It happens to all of us, but we just pray ourselves back onto the rails again and try to be a little more attentive.

        Remember when we were kids, the preacher talked about “that still, small voice inside.” In order to hear it, we got to quiet things down. It’s a good reason to not be “outraged” at everything all the time. Anger is an internal and infernal racket that drowns out the still, small voice.

        Thank you for the space for this. Keep on praying. Have faith that the Lord hears us.

        And declare to My people their transgression
        And to the house of Jacob their sins.

        And has not forsaken the ordinance of their God.

        And drive hard all your workers.
        4“Behold, you fast for contention and strife and to strike with a wicked fist.
        You do not fast like you do today to make your voice heard on high.
        5“Is it a fast like this which I choose, a day for a man to humble himself?
        Is it for bowing one’s head like a reed
        And for spreading out sackcloth and ashes as a bed?
        Will you call this a fast, even an acceptable day to the LORD?
        6“Is this not the fast which I choose,
        To loosen the bonds of wickedness,
        To undo the bands of the yoke,
        And to let the oppressed go free
        And break every yoke?

        And bring the homeless poor into the house;
        When you see the naked, to cover him;
        And not to hide yourself from your own flesh?
        8“Then your light will break out like the dawn,
        And your recovery will speedily spring forth;
        And your righteousness will go before you;
        The glory of the LORD will be your rear guard.

        And satisfy the desire of the afflicted,
        Then your light will rise in darkness
        And your gloom will become like midday.

        And satisfy your desire in scorched places,
        And give strength to your bones;
        And you will be like a watered garden,
        And like a spring of water whose waters do not fail.

        You will raise up the age-old foundations;
        And you will be called the repairer of the breach,
        The restorer of the streets in which to dwell.

        And call the sabbath a delight, the holy day of the LORD honorable,
        And honor it, desisting from your own ways,

    Is all this related to the group of Federal judges (lowercase “j” intentionally used to denote lack of regard for these judges) holding an emergency meeting?
    It seems to me that the judiciary has been usurping powers not meant for them to have, overstepping their roles, and despite compromised Roberts’ claim there are no Obama/Bush/Trump judges there most certainly are massive political and deep state judges in place.
    The abuse of power by these judiciary figures is either incompetence or through believing they have the right to inject their own legal opinions on things they never were meant to.
    The FISC abuse was something concerning in it’s inception. The means to abuse this system under cover of darkness might have had good intentions, but it seems far to easy to abuse these and effectively remove constitutionally protected rights. I doubt the abuse of these courts are limited to Trump’s resistance movement, and I wonder how many cases were prosecuted using an out of control judiciary and prosecution teams for political purposes.

            These stories about FISA fraud and DOJ coverups should have been told publicly long ago.

            Now the Left will flip them to be conspiracy theories and intimidating judges and intimidating trusty prosecutors.

            And they’ll win. Because they’re first with the narrative and because they have the press.

            This sh#t should have been out long ago.

            It’ll be said that Barr’s gotta wait for his investigations to be complete, but I reckon it’s time for a status report:

            “Gimme all you got right now, as of this time. I gotta go explain a few things to the American Public”

                  None of these former prosecutors who signed the letter (up to 2,000 at last count), or judges who are calling an “emergency meeting”, voiced their concerns over FISA abuse, unequal treatment of General Flynn and McCabe, Roger Stone being gagged during his trial, at least one of Stone’s jurors demonstrating profound bias, the sham impeachment against President Trump with ZERO due process, or multiple other instances where Lady Justice took off her blindfold. Only after President Trump and Barr pushed back against egregious, unethical and illegal behavior do they feign “outrage” at our compromised justice system, which they are responsible for. Today’s emergency meeting will no doubt give a clearer idea of how the swamp plans to proceed. Very scary times.

    The sequestration will not get to the bottom of this transfer of privileged information, because there does not appear to have been any justification for the transfer. According to the embedded document, the GSA just handed over the emails of the Trump transition team to the Special Counsel when the SC simply asked for them — no subpoena, no search warrant, just a letter from one deep state operative to another. The SC asked for the info and the GSA said, “Here you go…”. Maybe the SC said, “pretty please,” but it does not look like it used any official process or stated any justification.

They’ve attacked from positions of strength inside the bureaucracy, as we’ve been left to stare in disbelief at the tv.

    The lasting historical conclusion, is what citizen will ever believe in law, when daily treason can be visited upon our President, with no ramifications? The “whistleblower” is a CIA operator and the CIA says nothing? Lt. Col. Vindman is a military officer stationed inside the White House and part of the latest coup and the Joint Chiefs say nothing? They ruthlessly and desperately leveraged witnesses to turn against the President. In another “Welcome to Unbelievable,” they got two lawyers (Cohen, McGhan) to testify against their client — THE PRESIDENT. The DOJ SDNY is, at this moment, trying to get at another of his attorneys.

    Barr might be Swamp and Deep State, but he knows federal institutions have gone completely off the rails here. So does Roberts. I don’t expect jail sentences for the malefactors involved, and I never have, but the essence of a Deep State is the conservation of a lawful settled order, and that is what’s gone off the rails.

    I expect Barr and Roberts to deal with the most egregious aspects of that departure, the FISA warrant process. They’ll likely handle it institutionally, and leave individual personalities held harmless. If they do that, it’s probably all we can expect from these creatures. Everything our host describes would indicate that they’re doing that. We’ll see.

    All of what we most fear, an unaccountable bureaucracy running roughshod over the law and process, is the antithesis of what Deep State wants. Deep State wants continuity, not situational manipulations which can blow up and destroy continuity, as this all has. A Deep State is inevitable, but how it acts is the thing. It doesn’t want disruptions, even if a black swan event like Trump arrives on the scene. Deep State’s timeline is decades and decades, not 4 year presidential terms. They don’t knee jerk. Think Cold War, not Syrian War.

    Susan Rice’s memo is the tell. She knew the White House was implicated in the knee jerking. This all goes to the Oval Office, and was facilitated by a seated president. He might have been too dumb to understand the implications of his actions, but he did act if only by omission, and so did Lynch, Comey, Brennan et al. Thus, nobody can go to jail without them pulling a Wolfe and asking for testimony from higher ups, and Deep Stater Barr won’t do that. That too destroys continuity in Deep State’s eyes.

    A reasonable goal here is institutional reform, sad as that sounds. I think this is the worst political scandal in our nation’s history, worthy of multiple death penalties, and I’m not even much in favor of capital punishment. But I doubt the system permits this, nor will Barr. So institutional reform it is. That frees Swamp creatures to speak out against the wrongdoing, since they won’t be held accountable for their role in it, which might facilitate required reforms. Sort of a “Truth Commission” effect. Everybody gets a pass and we just fix it. Let’s pray.

    Trump has made one institutional reform that we clearly see, in cutting White House NSC staff in half, including the Vindman trash. It’s not sexy, but these are the types of moves we should expect in coming years, to rein in the bureaucracy and get things back on the rails institutionally. People have jobs and they must stay in their lane, from bottom to top. Obama and his people were drunk on power, and simply took a pen and a phone and went to town, and the bureaucracy went with them, all of it. That has to change. Institutional walls, floors and ceilings must be respected, and that’s what Roberts and Barr must make prime re the FISA travesty.

For me, the worst part is the whole corruption cluster F is that it is pretty much invisible to the general public, thanks to MSM But, I guess in spite of everything, it is better to know.

        A small tangent, but a point…..

        I grew up in a small Western Pennsylvania town just outside of Pittsburgh.
        Where the wives and Grandma’s would wait on their porches for their husbands on paydays to come home from the steel mills, the glass factories, and the mines to give them their pay checks…..and take off their work clothes before going in the house.

        It was a shot and beer kinda of town. No one locked their doors. We took our guns to school so we could go hunting after school. All boys carried knives.

        No one got shot. No one got stabbed. Getting to first base with a girl was a kiss.

        Boys fought. I started fighting in grade school. We were not bullies. You had a disagreement. You fought. Sometimes you won…..sometimes you lost….

        But the truth be told, most of the hoys who fought became best friends.

        50% of the boys in my gradating class went into the military. It’s were you could fight……for your country……25% of the boys went to the mills…..family tradition.

        The other 25% went to college…….These were the privileged….the rich…
        The ones who “did not fight”

        In school they had their “Clubs”……most of us would not even consider joining their clubs nor did we want to…..A couple of us joined and quit….When asked why….to a person they said:

        “All they do is talk”

        These are the ones that are running this country now. They have been in their “Club” their entire lives……All they do is talk…

        And we had fights with many in the “Clubs”…..most would not fight…..many would run away….some would just keep talking as they got beat

        They must be fought…..some maybe Barr……have never actually fought in their lives….especially someone from the same Club…..

        Sundance has exposed them. “The Emperor has no clothes”

        Barr must fight for us…..or against us……..but the fight is now here.

    This is why the constitution has to be followed by the text and not the so called “intent” of the framers. The left loves to use “intent” to interpret the constitution because intent is malleable. Text is specific and backed up by reference material to clearly convey what the text in the constitution means and meant at the time it was written. Our founders were brilliant and well studied and they understood human nature, The left cannot abide by the law so they have to divert attention away from it with word games and innuendo by saying the constitution says whatever they want it to say. If that is the case, then why did the framers bother writing it down at all? Because they knew full well human nature is corruptible and that men are by nature corrupt. So, the next time some idiot says the constitution needs to be rewritten because the “internet”, tell them it has nothing to do with technology and everything to do with the basic mindset of power hungry unscrupulous individuals who have not changed their tactics since the beginning of time. These are the people who have been destroying our country for over a century. They need to be stopped. The American Revolution will never end. It is a tireless and eternal endeavor.

    There are no “outsiders” in a thoroughly corrupt U.S. Justice Department and FBI.

    How does the United States keep pretending to be a nation of laws when it is run by so many criminals? As President John Adams correctly noted, our constitution was designed for a moral people and will not succeed in an amoral society.

    The entire matter has now just become a gigantic cover-up trying to deceive the American people. The system is a rotting corpse. The dying body politic is full of a horrible cancer.

    None of the government perpetrators inside have gone to jail. The legal system has been used to defame, personally destroy and falsely prosecute the political enemies of the Left. The penalties handed out to enemies of these crooks are outrageously vindictive and unjustified.

    Federal jurors in Washington DC are openly biased and and act contrary to law. They brag about their prejudice. Their view of justice is the ends justify the means. Ironically, the same kind of lynch-mob justice condemned in the Old South is alive and well in today’s Washington DC.

    Where we are now is declaring the system completely corrupt will cast a shadow over ALL federal prosecutions and probably swing open many cell doors of federal prisons. There is no EASY way out of this which is why I believe we will descend into some kind of violent civil war before it is over.

    We are facing the special hell a thoroughly corrupt legal system delivers.

      their absurdly large pay check to the federal government. If
      the juror happens to be, say, a disadvantaged black renter,
      they owe the roof over their head to the federal government.

      And, the federal government currently seems to hate it’s boss.
      It would be SO easy to make that phone call, once you catch
      wind that one of your underlings is on a DC federal grand jury.

      Then, lead them down the path on what might be the error of their

    When looking at AG Barr’s own words as he was talking about “the resistance” during his Federalist Society speech, it appears to me that Mr. Barr describes a coup without calling it that.

    “What it means is that, instead of viewing themselves as the “loyal opposition,” as opposing parties have done in this country for over 200 years, they essentially SEE THEMSELVES AS ENGAGED IN A WAR TO CRIPPLE, BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY, A DULY ELECTED GOVERNMENT.”

    (Upper case annotation mine)

    Doesn’t this statement almost by definition mean SEDITIOUS CONSPIRACY under 18 U.S. Code § 2384???

    “If two or more persons in any State or Territory, or in any place subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, conspire to overthrow, put down, or to destroy by force the Government of the United States, or to levy war against them, or to oppose by force the authority thereof, or by force to prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States, or by force to seize, take, or possess any property of the United States contrary to the authority thereof, they shall each be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both.”

    So isn’t the real question for AG Barr………

    Does the law apply equally to people who worked prior and currently in the DOJ and FBI or are they exempt because as we all have seen, NO ONE within the DOJ and FBI has been indicted to date.

    Job loss is not Justice. 18 U.S. Code § 2384 DOES NOT say that the penalty is simply losing one’s job!

    The entire world now sees this for what it truly has been. A COUP to take down a duly elected government AND a sitting President of the United States.

    You and Mr. Wray are sworn to uphold the law and it is time for accountability, truth and justice for ALL including people who worked and currently work in your DOJ and FBI.

    Barr has been attempting to Walk The Cat Back. I use that phrase intentionally because, even though its implication is usually inevitable Sisyphean failure, here I mean it as a clear-eyed recognition of the monumental task before him, that he may well nonetheless pull off.

    There is now enough information available for the informed to speculate intelligently, filling in the blanks, of the specific elements in this massive, years long seditious conspiracy. Rather than reinvent the wheel, I will simply note the recent key news that the last two renewals of the Page FISA Warrant weren’t properly predicated just so happens to divide between before and after Trump took the oath.

    Whether major and even prestige media can get their minds around the implications of this, let alone report it, it is a declaration that what came afterward was, in short, a rogue, series of ultra vires acts against legitimate constitutional authority. Make no mistake, they will assert A Pox On Both Houses to the bitter end and beyond. Which, I’ve previously noted, is doing increasing damage to the Democrat Party.

    The irony is that the post-inauguration malefactions are much easier to resolve. The coup against Trump failed, the other convictions tainted by the illegal FISA transmission belt can be reversed. The Absolute Immunity of culpable governmental officials will be (successfully) challenged. They’ll spend the rest of their days defending themselves in civil court, unless they come clean and give up the Shot Callers.

    However, it’s the origins of this criminal conspiracy, from the beginning until Trump became President on January 20, 2017, that are a much bigger mess to resolve. As I’ve mentioned before, the unspoken principle of Better Safe Than Sorry will always reign supreme when it comes to counter-intelligence. Thus, as a matter of first impression, anything goes as far as investigating foreign infiltration/compromise, particularly at the highest levels of government. Anything is possible, including, for example, that Page was a double agent or Russia otherwise had him by the shorthairs.

    But we — everyone — now knows that these operations, by intent and actions, extended well beyond this essential counter-intelligence imperative. It’s baldly obvious the intent was to force candidate Trump to drop out (my continuing belief is that Access Hollywood was to be the public pretext to the threats he was receiving), and then, failing that, throw the election to Hillary via media leaks.

    Perhaps the greatest risk to the malefactors, in a minefield of risk of historic proportions, derives from their actions between Trump winning and taking the oath — the transition period. Everyone seems to forget their attempt to corrupt and manipulate the Electoral College process.

    There’s a great deal of information leading to the mind-blowing conclusion that former CIA Director Brennan was a Russian agent, his having been compromised and turned decades ago. By the way, I always wondered who is the real participant of the Pee Story incident fabricated about germaphobe Trump. I’m convinced this incident did occur, and the debauched caught on tape is none other than John Brennan.

      In a speech to lawmakers on 8 December 2016, Hillary Clinton called attention to the issue, saying pending legislation before the U.S. Congress would “boost the government’s response to foreign propaganda.” She called on trendsetters in society to work together on the problem: “It’s imperative that leaders in both the private sector and the public sector step up to protect our democracy, and innocent lives.

      On 8 December 2016, the Countering Foreign Propaganda and Disinformation Act passed a vote in the U.S. Senate by a wide margin. It was included together with the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) Conference Report for fiscal year 2017, which passed in the U.S. Senate with a final tally of 92 to 7.

      In the version of the bill incorporated into the 2017 National Defense Authorization Act, the U.S. Congress would ask the United States Secretary of State to collaborate with the United States Secretary of Defense and other relevant Federal agencies to create a “Global Engagement Center” (GEC) to fight against propaganda from foreign governments, and publicize the nature of ongoing foreign propaganda and disinformation operations against the United States and other countries.The bill said this inter-agency effort should: “counter foreign propaganda and disinformation directed against United States national security interests and proactively advance fact-based narratives that support United States allies and interests.”

      On 23 December 2016, President Obama signed the 2017 National Defense Authorization Act into law. Supporters of the resolution inside the Defense Department have publicly expressed their desire to weaken the interpretation of domestic propaganda protections, laws which prevent the United States Department of State from gathering information necessary to develop targeted propaganda messaging and prevent them from explicitly attempting to influence opinions.

      According to reporting by The New York Times, two thirds of the funding allocated to the Department of State under the bill meant to be transferred by the Pentagon to the State Department was never transferred. As of March 2018, the State Department has restricted counter-propaganda efforts on combating Jihadi terror groups, like ISIS, as opposed to expanding its focus to include Russian propaganda in the United States. These efforts are conducted by the GEC. While the GEC’s 23 analysts speak several Middle Eastern languages, none are fluent in Russian.

            On March 4, 2017, U.S. President Donald Trump wrote a series of posts on his Twitter account that accused former President Barack Obama of wiretapping his phones at his Trump Tower office late in the 2016 presidential campaign. Trump called for a congressional investigation into the matter, and the Trump administration cited news reports to defend these accusations. His initial claims were based on an article in Breitbart News, a website known to publish conspiracy theories.

            Representative Devin Nunes, the then-chair of the House Intelligence Committee, said he would investigate the claim. At a House Intelligence Committee open hearing on March 20, 2017, Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Director James Comey stated that neither the FBI nor the Department of Justice (DOJ) possessed any information to support Donald Trump’s wiretapping allegations. Nunes stated on March 23 (NYT article published March 22) that the Trump administration’s communications might have been legally monitored during the transition period as part of an “incidental collection”

  37. It continues to simply amaze me how the media continues to say the same things over and over – always, “orange man bad” – and how government agencies continue to pay them to do this. “Of course” the Attorney General of the United States(!) is “interfering,” on behalf of Orange Man Bad who always wears a microcontroller in his pocket that’s hooked straight to Moscow so Putin can pull his strings. Yeah, we’ve heard it before.

    It is abundantly clear that we must now repeal both FISA and PATRIOT. If surveillance is going to be done, it must be done at the written – classified – order of the President him/herself. The FISA system was effortlessly “gamed” by government liars, and the judges at that time did not and probably could not know. (This so-called “court” has no gadfly, no devil’s advocate, no one to argue that the requested access should not be granted.) PATRIOT was the underlying tool used to sweep the 4th Amendment completely away. And our national security has suffered terribly from it, because national security begins and ends with the citizen.

    I’m not sure it is even statistically possible but here it is.

    I think as more and more Americans see lists like these coupled with the lists of their people who got a pass and our people who get indicted, they clearly see the bias and injustice.

    The American people see and now know, so what’s it going to be, truth and equal justice or just more of the same, whitewashing??

    Retired Magistrate here: Not all lawyers are bad. The Judge I used to work for financed his own campaign so he would not be influenced by anyone. He had several high profile cases where he did the right thing and people in power from outside the State of Ohio did everything they could to prevent him from being re elected; he won anyway. He didn’t suffer fools and followed the law. He set a good example for me and I tried to do the same thing from the bench; follow the law whether I agreed with the law or not.

    It’s sometimes difficult to do the right thing; however, it is worth it in the long run. When this life is over I know I will answer to GOD for what I did and so will those that have corrupted the law and due process and ruined/tried to ruin so many lives.

      I was interested in this issue and used duckduckgo to search “states that elect judges.”

      Note: This is only for non-federal judges. I don’t know that system. I assume it is even worse, but we gotta start somewhere…

      The Ballotpedia (I find them to be a useful factual source) article below addresses it. Seems to be a mishmash. For example, in my idiot state of BlueMA, our extremely idiotic DementoRat-in_Disguise_As_RINO guv Charlie Baker appoints them, which looks to be the method of some of the worse blue states.

      But if you find that your own state does indeed allow election of judges – it’s another area to which voters need to pay high attention! Work to get as many MAGA ones in as possible…

    The “media” is playing their role.

    To mislead, plant false stories and spread lies as if those lies were THE truth.
    They pick and choose what they will cover and what they will cover-up and hide.
    They bring in the most discredited, outrageous scum bags like The Creepy Porn Lawyer, one after another (Christine Ford/fraud) to give the illusion of a crises, Trump is too deep in wrong doing, and the sheep watching believes every word they say.

    This is classic disinformation, subversion, brainwashing. It’s carefully planned, coordinated and the “mistakes” are 100% intentional. They don’t want to verify the stories, they run whatever advances their agenda. It doesn’t matter if it’s garbage. They will correct later after the damage is done.

    They don’t make mistakes, they don’t fall for guys like Avenatti. It’s all intentional. They seek lies to cover 24/7. By the time the truth comes around the lies are already planted all over the world. The truth will not get necessary air time. But the intentional lies will and will be repeated by all of the familiar faces on cable news.

    MSM is a criminal enterprise. Their job is to cover-up crimes for their masters while distracting the sheep with fabricated stories.

      And as someone mentioned on a different thread, using the cover of the 1st Amendment and special press freedoms to do so.

      Democracy doesn’t exist without a free media. We don’t have much of one–just barely. Ergo, we barely have democracy.

      The coup has been largely revealed. Prosecutions remain…
      Next step for Term2: Reveal media/spy agency/govt interrelationship. Blow up MSM to smithereens.

    Did the electronic surveillance authorized by the FISA court collect NSA database information on Candidate, President-Elect or President Trump, members of his family, members of his campaign, members of his administration, or any of his Republican primary opponents from the moment he rode down the Trump Tower escalator to the expiration of the third renewal application? That really is the only question.

    If so, and if any of the unmasking included any of those individuals, then you do indeed have conclusive evidence of political espionage conducted by the Obama Administration deep into the Trump Administration. This is the information missing from the IG Report on FISA abuse. Any reasonable investigation into such abuse would have inquired into what information was obtained through FISA authorization and who were the targets of the electronic surveillance. Yet, this information is completely absent from the IG Report.

    Until this information is made public, the DOJ and FBI remain in cover up mode.

      Well we know just in 2017 alone, the FIB and Contractors conducted over 3,100,000 searches using the NSA database.

      Not sure how many are the result of FISA because our government will never go back and conduct a FULL AUDIT.

      We are relying strictly on Adm Rodgers 6 month audit where they determine 85% of the FISA requests were non-compliant.

      So with that isn’t the right thing to do is conduct a full audit going back to 2009 or at least 2012?

      Show those results to the American people and burn it down might be the least of their worries.

      Always remember. We know the information is there based upon public reaction to private activity. President-Elect Trump moved his transition team out of Trump Tower the day after his meeting with Admiral Rogers, then later accused the Obama Administration of wiretapping him. Clapper and Secretary of Defense Carter immediately urged President Obama to dismiss Rogers.

      Similarly, the Democrats went nuts when Congressman Nunes went to the White House, then disclosed that there was inappropriate unmasking of American citizens during the Obama Administration.

      The information is there. Either the NSA database surveillance targeted President Trump or it did not. The fact that we still don’t know the answer to that question, and AG Barr clearly does, is what is troubling.

    Everyone knows there are problems with the FISC court in terms of the applications and process and procedures conducted in the past(over and over again). The court itself knows, The DoJ knows, the FBI knows, the prosecutors know, and we know.

    So, here are some quick to the point questions to ask all of the above, specifically the Presiding FISA Judge Boasberg, Attorney General Barr, and FBI Director Wray.

    Here’s the questions: “Knowing what you know now and have known for quite some time about the 85% improper inquiries conducted by the FBI and DoJ and knowing that the application process itself does not have the proper safeguards, How many FISA Warrant applications have you signed or approved in the past year and specifically in the last 2 months? Why? How many were approved? Is it still 95%+ approval rate? Please explain why you continue to approve at this rate knowing there are severe problems that have not been corrected yet?

    The average applications for a FISA warrant have averaged over 130 per month(over 4 per day) since 2015. The annual FISA Court report concerning # and disposition of applications to Congress for 2019 is due late April(usually 20th-25th) of this year. This will be available to the public on the US Court/gov site. Wonder how many applications and approvals it will show when all of these entities are fully aware of the severe(if not illegal) problems?

    • To me it is obvious that the entire concept of FISA has turned out to be flawed. Maybe it looked good in post-Nixon times, but “it’s no court.” There’s no one in the room to argue that the surveillance should not be granted. The judge has no way to vet the information that has been presented – it could be utterly false, as we have seen. And, most importantly, the President is not held accountable.

      “Surveillance” is obviously an aphrodisiac. They can’t get enough of it. Tens of thousands of database searches every month … four or five FISA applications every day … and no one is accountable for it.

      FISA, like PATRIOT, needs to be repealed and replaced. We now plainly see the irreconcilable defects that these laws have. Instead of protecting us, they have exposed us.

    Likely another reason the dems were in such a hurry for impeachment. They tried to get their hands on 6e, grand jury material, which they never did, but had this ruling come out prior to impeachment there would have been no hope and no argument for the dems to get their hands on that material. Now it all goes bye-bye.

    Remember, as Sundance has pointed out prior… lawfare & co. already have this fraudulently obtained surveillance data. They’ve been trying like heck to retroactively justify using it legally, via phony ‘subpoena’, witness testimony, etc…

    What the sequestration of all FISA obtained material does, is set the precedent that it was ALL obtained illegally. Therefore, cannot be used against POTUS in future shampeachment attempts. Same as any 4th amendment protection against illegal search & seizure. Brilliant!

    The cherry on top of that sundae is that the crooks who tried to pull this coup off, have collectively exposed themselves by their own actions…

    They will run ANYTHING that makes Trump and us the supporters look bad. ANY THING.
    Truth or not that’s not a requirement.

    The only requirement is: Does it hurt the right and Trump?

    If the answer is yes, then they be will all over it 24/4.

    Their sources and guests same thing. They will showcase thugs, child predators, scammers, mentally ill people, (exploiting them) ANYBODY willing to go on the air and say bad things about Trump. Then their expects will go out of their way to give them credibility and amplify the scheme to hit Trump over an over.

      Don’t forget the info gathered by the illegal use of the NSA database search that was EXPORTED to outsiders. Crowdstrike? Soros? Fusion GPS? Some people out there are in possession of private information of their political enemies. Who are those enemies?

    Media should be targeted next for an investigation. Libel laws should be changed to hold these dangerous criminals accountable. It’s out of control.

    We can’t survive as a country with such dishonesty being sold as truth and normalizing vicious attacks against innocent people who can’t defend themselves. This is abuse.

    If their job is to cover-up crimes, they should be held accountable for that.

    Fabricating stories to destroy someone is not free press. It’s criminal. It’s abuse.
