Sunday Talks: Senator Ron Johnson Discusses Obamagate Subpoenas and Committee Investigation…

Senate Homeland Security Committee Chairman Ron Johnson appears on Fox News with Maria Bartiromo to discuss his committee investigation into what the U.S. intelligence apparatus was doing during the 2016 election, transition, and first two years of President Trump’s tenure in office.

It’s a good interview, and chairman Johnson outlines additional subpoenas that his committee is submitting to compel testimony and gain documents.  However, it’s now mid-June 2020.

      At the end of the process, Johnson will make referrals to, wait for it, wait for it, wait, AG Barr, the place where all criminal DC Behavior goes to get “prosecution declined.” (but he’ll make a few more terrific tough-talking speeches, practicing for the Goldman Sachs tour after he’s out of public service)

        I’m not expecting any referrals. Sen. Johnson just (very tellingly) told Maria that his committee is only trying to get information out to the public and that he’ll leave indictments and prosecutions up to Durham.

        Somewhere around 5:30 Johnson suggests his committee will be more effective in getting to the bottom of the scandal and revealing truth than Rep. Nunes was in the House investigation. I very seriously doubt that because of Lindsey Graham and the other corrupt members of the SSCI.

      I am sorry. I trust almost no Senator. Democrat or Republican. (Except Rand Paul)? Here in Texas, we hate Cruz because he is so two-faced. And Cornyn never fully supports Trump and sounds like a democrat when he walks around Austin.

      The day those two get properly primaried, we will finally be able to breathe a sigh of relief and be done with them politically. Those two are no loyal supporters of the President. Our Governor Abbott is though. He will beat Pence for the nomination if he wanted to. I will add the governor of Florida to that list as well.

      Governor Abbott and Governor DeSantis: Two patriots!

        They don’t have the authority to take it beyond an investigation to a prosecution. They can – and have – referred quite a few people to the DOJ. It’s up to the DOJ to take it from there. Who knows? Maybe Durham is on it.

          I get it. The DO(do nothing)J has the responsibility to follow up on what the Senate finds…but the senate won’t find anything of substance. Just a bunch of hand wringing and speeches full of platitudes such as “we find everything here troubling and we are going to possibly consider doing something maybe in the coming session” Senator: (fill in name here)

            I agree with you in general, but it’s not just senators. Both senators and representatives have done a lot of digging. They’ve made a lot of noise. I may be wrong but I don’t think it’s just hand-wringing and platitudes. If it was we wouldn’t know half of what we know. It would be safely under the rug.

                The only thing substantive will be keeping what they have done fresh in the minds of voters. We don’t want anyone to forget how our intelligence agencies were used by Obama’s democrat administration to interfere with our election of PDJT and his administration once in office. And we want to know who their accomplices and enablers were in Congress, i.e. proof of what we already know.

  8. Forget the subpoenas or even getting justice for all the crimes of Comey, Brennan, McCabe, Clapper and all the other seditious bastards.
    At this point my main worry is making sure that our President Trump can re-elected in a landslide big enough that they can’t cheat him out of it.
    The Demonic forces are arrayed against us and have pulled out all the stops.
    Blue States like NY have already instituted mail in voting which they mandated for the statewide school budget votes and Cuomo already hints that there won’t be in person voting in November.
    Look at the Flynn case- that should have been over by now but the Deep State Swamp Judge says he is in charge and will what he damn well pleases.
    Rebellion, sedition and treason on all sides.
    I hope our President is right when he says the “silent majority is stronger than ever!”

        I am not one to have “blind loyalty” but this will be my first time where I am going all in for our President Trump, no matter what. I don’t care what he does short of betraying the American people which I know he will never do.

        The Senators may be perfidious, but it’s smart of P. Trump NOT to get involved in state & local matters. Not only is it critical for him to honor the 10th Amendment as much as possible, but it would bog him down in the national matters he truly IS responsible for.

        PLUS it has the advantage of letting these tyrants SHOW THEMSELVES to be the perfidious liars, incompetents, traitors to their cities & state & citizens, thieves, Jacobins they are. They CANNOT blame him for doing OR not “doing something”.

        He is true to his pattern… Warn, tell people to do their jobs, inform them that he 2ill use his plenary power if needed, give them a space to comply, exposing themselves in the process, and then, the hammer drops. They are too stupid to see it. VSG President!

          On the other side of the coin, people do not agree with the left’s ridiculous push to defund or abolish the police. Nor the democrat leadership of a city giving over blocks to criminals pretending to have established the ‘CHAZ nation’. (Sane people outgrow pretending long before becoming adults.) Pretty sure the burning, looting, and violence allowed in democrat run States and Cities reflects poorly on the democrat party, too.

          All things considered, it doesn’t look like President Trump or ‘the Republicans’ are the losers.

Wouldn’t surprise me at all for him to switch parties after the election. He’s never been one of us anyway. He’s a leader of the Willard Party and none of us would ever go there again. We made a mistake once but the emperor dropped his clothes and we have seen him for the scumbag he really is. Ditto for McCain. They wanted our supportl Maybe McCain gets a partial pass–we don’t know how long he had brain cancer so maybe the cancer took out the functioning part of his brain before 2016, explaining his traiterous activity and his Obama worship.

      I assume nobody asks, because they know the answer, and you would too, if you did an internet search. The Senate cannot recess without approval of the House, and Nancy has no intention of helping the administration in any way.

      Meanwhile, your vituperation and misplaced antagonism smears the repubs, who (whether you like it or not) are the ones who stand between us and dem control.

    At this point you cannot relie on justice. The head of the various Senate Committee’s (Rubio, Lamb Graham, and Grassley are useless). Wray is dirty as is Justice Robert’s. The DOJ is so infected with traitors it is hard to keep track of all the individuals. The judicial system in DC is a Democrat strong hold. Barr is an entrenched bureaucrat who slow walked the investigation which allowed the Democrats to impeach Trump.
    The best we can hope for is Ratcliffe to continue what Grenell so successful implemented. The release of every relevant document pertaining to the coup so it will be judged in the court of public opinion. Maybe that will embarrass the Politicians to act. To be honest I think its too late.
