    John Solomon, talking with the Great Lou Dobbs tonight, said Clinesmith provided the CIA doc telling the truth re: Carter Page was a CIA asset, to the Gang of 8 on 17 Aug 2016. Solomon said this info is a single sentence in the Clinesmith attorney docs.

    That is what my ears heard. However, this one is too important to be incorrect.
    Would some of you listen again to Mr Dobb’s show, which runs again at 7, and verify or correct my ears?
    Sure would appreciate it. Thanks very much.

      Jeans, not from Dobbs, but it is the same info you’re looking for:


      • MagaMia says:

        Not about Gang of 8.
        Solomon spoke of an earlier effort by FBI to mislead the FISA court.
        Said that in August of 2016 CIA told FBI that Carter Page was an operational asset, but for the first three FISAs beginning in Oct 2016, FBI knew, but did not disclose, this critical info to FISA Court.
        So Solomon thinks on that basis there maybe be more criminal indictments yet to come.

    Awww. Mr. La Resistance says he’s sowwy.

    “Kevin deeply regrets having altered the email,” Clinesmith’s lawyer, Justin Shur, said in a statement Friday. “It was never his intent to mislead the court or his colleagues as he believed the information he relayed was accurate. But Kevin understands what he did was wrong and accepts responsibility.”

      this is the lawyers praise of Comey in 2016 October – regarding announcing hillary investigation ( he didnt like that, but praised comey in general)

      Justin Shur

      “Well, it’s clearly contrary to long-standing DOJ policy. I have great respect for the director; there’s no one in my view more qualified for the job than James Comey. He’s truly a talented lawyer and his dedication to public service is unsurpassed.

      But his decision is inconsistent with DOJ policy and procedures. I mean, first, the DOJ and the FBI simply do not discuss, publicly at least, ongoing investigations and what investigative steps they may or may not take. Especially when the investigation involves a candidate running for office

      That he did so a few days before the election is stunning.”

      If the reporter or talking head or network does good, President Trump gives them a “chocolate”. If they don’t, he gives them a whack.

      Trouble is that some, like Acosta for example, ignore the stick. Those are the ones that need a 2 x 4 between the eyes just to get their attention.

    Good refresher thread by Roscoe Davis. Succinct. Excerpt:

    FTA: Based on Weissmann losing his shit on twitter right now, it might not have been McCabe that gave the order on June 19 2017. Team Mueller was in full control of Crossfire Hurricane by that time and Weissmann was running that show.


    • WhiteBoard says:

      I just read this.

      The BIGGEST THING that popped out to me was Roscoes comment below:

      ” This is interesting, so Crossfire Hurricane was a FARA investigation?”

      “That’s a “criminal” investigation, we’ve been told a thousand times is was a “counterintelligence” investigation and that was why the bar was lower to spy on them. ”

      Get it? CH launched in August 2016 when Peter said Insurance Policy was a CRIMINAL investigation of FARA on Papa? and not a counterintelligence as COMEY LIED about .


    • Cathy M. says:

      Per your linked post:
      “He’s charged with 18 USC 1001 one count. Basically a process crime.
      First offense no priors he gets a probated sentence.”

      Well, he might receive solely probation but the seriousness of the crime also comes into play. I’d say lying to the FISC & illegally obtaining a warrant, especially a FISA warrant, is a heck of a lot more serious than lying to a federal agent or Congress, for that matter.

      But he will likely receive points (months) off his sentence for pleaing & for cooperation (if he’s cooperating). He looks like a soy boy so he’s likely cooperating.

      (“the sentencing judge should consider the nature and seriousness of the conduct, the statutory purposes of sentencing, and the pertinent offender characteristics.”)

      In summary she is pointing THIS OUT.

      Contractors exported the NSA database- and learned the agreements the Gov was doing with Private companies.

      What stops a company like Fusion GPS from partnering with Verizon and AT&T and just getting backdoor access themselves? they dont need to tap the NSA database anymore, they bypass it.

      and what would our government do to stop that? Nothing? because these private companies are building international partnerships with interpol and the UN (TREASON).

        Wonder if this capability, to delete/remove things then replace with new information is similar to what the reporter Sharyl Attkisson was able to show happened to her computer, even watched it being edited while she was writing a story, and was able to claim through a whistleblower that it was being done through a federal agency, think it was FBI but not sure of all the details –

        when Tore spoke of that ability S. Attkisson was the first one i thought of.

          Yes, she found out that Rod Rosenstein authorized it but because she couldn’t name the specific agent who carried it out in her complaint. the judge threw it out. The FBI refused to tell her the official agent who performed the task.

    Why were Contractors acessing the NSA database and are they still now?

    Nellie Ohr worked for a contractor – handed it to her husband at the DOJ and he says Christopher Stelle has bias.

    But! correct me if I am wrong. didnt Sundance point out that Steele just signed it, he didnt author any of it. the Contractors did. The contractors used the NSA database to do oppo research (Nellie is quoted saying she looked into some of the Trump children’s travels).

    The oppo research done by contractors using the NSA database was then LAUNDERED back into the FBI that GAVE THEM ACCESS to support FISAs.

    Jim Comey (Dirty Cop) gave contractors access (Fusion GPS , Crowd Strike, etc) to do oppo research and then used their oppo research as a secondary source to justify “by the book’ fisas.

    Sundance is right to say this CANT BE COMPARTMENTALIZED TO THE FBI because Ohr’s wife was the research, contractor abuser of the NSA database, and the author contributor to the Steele autographed dossier (that he didnt write).

    per horowitz report –

    • He says – he found no bias and proper predicate – because the FBI policy is to loose and a first line level FBI supervisor can authorize Azra Turk agreed recordings and Mike Rogers Agreed recordings etc…

    • But he says because of this huge trust in the FBI they must have “full and accurate” representations to the court and be “scrupulously accurate”.

    • 17 errors or ommissions means they broke their policy which was made to stay in the law.

    An important section from page 3 is provided below:

    “Moreover, proceedings before theForeign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC)—which is responsible for ruling on applications for FISA orders—are ex parte, meaning that unlike most court proceedings, the government is the only party present for the proceedings.

    In addition, unlike the use of other intrusive investigative techniques (such as wiretaps under Title III and traditional criminal search warrants) that are granted in ex parte hearings but can potentially be subject to later court challenge, FISA orders have not been subject to scrutiny through subsequent adversarial proceedings.

    In light of these concerns, Congress through the FISA statute, and theDepartment and FBI through policies and procedures, have established important safeguards to protect the FISA application process from irregularities and abuse.

    Among the most important are the requirements in FBI policy that every FISA application must contain a “full and accurate” presentation of the facts, and that agents must ensure that all factual statements in FISA applications are “scrupulously accurate.”

    These are the standards for all FISA applications, regardless of the investigation’s sensitivity, and it is incumbent upon the FBI to meet them in every application.”

First, California Attorney General Xavier Becerra will issue a statement decrying the ruling and announcing that it’s a crime against humanity that endangers the lives of all Californians. He’ll then ask the court for an en banc review of the decision and an order allowing the continued enforcement of the ban while the court considers the case.”

      “…The majority of Americans favor returning to work even in the era of coronavirus.

      Fifty-eight percent of Americans say returning to work is a good idea, according to an NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist Poll of 1,261 National Adults.

      Support for returning to work is broad, cutting across income, education, ethnic, generational, regional, age, and gender lines.

      But there is a stark political distinction: only 33 percent of Democrats say it is a good idea to return to work. Fifty-three percent say it is a bad idea.

      Eighty-four percent of Republicans say returning to work is a good idea. Just 11 percent say it is a bad idea.

      Among independents, 56 percent say it is a good idea. Thirty-three percent say it is a bad idea.

      That puts Democrats at odds with most of the county.

      Majorities in all four regions say returning to work is a good idea.
      Majorities of people earning under $50,000 and people earning over that among favor work,.
      Majorities of college graduates and non-graduates favor returning to work.
      Majorities of those over 45 and those under favor returning to work.
      Majorities of Gen Z, Millenials, Gen X, Boomer, and Silent Generation favor returning to work.
      Majorities of whites and Hispanics favor returning to work.
      Thirty-eight percent of blacks say work is a good idea, versus 47 percent who say it is a bad idea.
      People who live small cities, small towns, suburbs, and rural areas favor work.
      Big city dwellers oppose, 47 percent versus 40 percent…”

    We just got a weaselly e-mail at 10 pm on a Friday night that our school district is pulling the plug on the start of the school year. This is in NJ, and is two days after “good guy” Gov. Murphy gave the school districts cover to bail on their academic year; so they all have started doing that.

    I am afraid that all the exhortations of President Trump to open the schools, as correct as they have been, have only emboldened the left to double-down on their Nazi tactics by keeping schools closed — the mental and emotional well-being of kids everywhere be damned. It’s the hydroxychloroquine effect: He mentioned its benefits five months ago, and it quickly became a dirty word to the left, the mainstream media and everyone controlled by big pharma.

    This is a disgrace. They are using our kids as pawns in their vicious war, and I have never been so angry in my life.

  45. No one involved in the coup attempt should be able to plea without a public acknowledgement, in open court and with press access, under oath, in front of a judge, that his or her act or actions were in fact a part of a group effort to prevent Candidate/Nominee Donald Trump from becoming President, or to prevent the normal facilitation of his Administration.

    Three years the press and the crazies have lied about this Russia crap, there are still a lot of useful idiots who believe it; I want it on record that not only was there never any Collusion – at least by the Trump campaign – but that THEY KNEW THERE WASN’T TO BEGIN WITH. And still pushed the lie.

    It needs to be so public that the lying fake news can no longer cover it up.
