Obama Admin Stopped Video During Collusion Meetings

More damning evidence of wrongdoing at the highest levels of the U.S. government-up to and including former President Barack Obama-is beginning to snowball into one glaring verdict: the only “collusion” in the run-up to the 2016 election was by the Deep State Democrats against then candidate President Trump. “It wasn’t handled in the ordinary way that investigations or counterintelligence activities are conducted. It was sort of an ad hoc small group-and most of these people are no longer with the FBI or the CIA or the other agencies involved,” Attorney General Bill Barr told Fox News on Friday. “I think there’s a misconception out there that we know a lot about what happened. The fact of the matter is Bob Mueller did not look at the government’s activities.” Namely, Mueller did not consider who or why Obama cut off the situation room video feed during meetings regarding the Russia collusion investigation to keep their conversations compartmentalized from the broader intelligence community. What’s more, four key Obama officials were involved: Brennan, Clapper, Lynch, and Comey. And surprise, surprise: NO WITNESSES WERE ALLOWED!

Here’s more from Breitbart…

Comments made by Attorney General William Barr about extraordinary arrangements regarding the original handling of the Russia investigation may take on more significance in light of a previous report showing a high and unusual degree of compartmentalization in the Obama-era intelligence community’s initial intel set up of the Russia probe.

In an interview with Fox News that aired Friday, Barr commented that the intelligence community’s early handling of the Russia investigation may raise questions. He noted it was first handled at a “very senior level” and then by a “small group.”

Barr stated:

The thing that’s interesting about this is that this was handled at a very senior level of these departments. It wasn’t handled in the ordinary way that investigations or counterintelligence activities are conducted.

IG Probe into FISA Abuse “Devastating”

Fox News’ Sean Hannity reported to viewers on Wednesday that his sources reveal that not only is Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz “done” investigating anti-Trump FISA abuse but also that the findings are “devastating.” Hannity’s comments follow the announcement by Attorney General Bill Barr of his appointment of Connecticut Attorney General John Durham to dig into the “Deep State” collusion against then candidate Donald Trump and his 2016 presidential campaign. This might explain why House Democrats have ratcheted up their campaign to investigate President Trump in hopes of distracting from what is almost certain to evolve into a Watergate-level conspiracy just in time for the 2020 election.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

Conservative commentator Sean Hannity said on his Fox News program Wednesday night that his sources say the Justice Department inspector general’s investigation into abuse by the FBI of FISA warrants to surveil the Trump campaign is “done” — and “it’s devastating.” The conservative host’s comments come a few days after it was revealed that Attorney General William Barr has appointed Connecticut’s top prosecutor John Durham to investigate the increasingly suspicious origins of the Trump-Russia probe amid new troubling revelations.

In comments reported by the Washington Examiner, Hannity first brought up Inspector General Michael Horowitiz’s FISA abuse probe in a discussion with Fox News legal analyst Gregg Jarrett and Fox contributor former Rep. Jason Chaffetz. “I have sources telling me that Horowitz perhaps is even finished with his report and certainly [Attorney General William Barr] has been briefed on what is coming,” said Hannity.

Comey: Brennan Pushed “Pee” Dossier in 2016

An email chain from late 2016 shows disgraced former FBI Director James Comey telling his staff that Obama loyalist CIA Director John Brennan insisted that the anti-Trump Steele “pee” dossier be included in the January 6, 2017, U.S. Intelligence Community report, which kicked off the Russia collusion investigation. That same document, despite never being verified, was successfully used to obtain three of the four FISA warrants-with Comey signing ALL of the applications-used to spy on Trump campaign adviser Carter Page. This revelation adds more fuel to the fire raging that may take down numerous former Obama officials with a conspiracy now involving several agencies, namely the DOJ, CIA, and Department of State.

Here’s more from Breitbart…

Disgraced ex-FBI Director James Comey, former CIA Director turned anti-Trump activist John Brennan and former Director of National Intelligence and Trump critic James Clapper are the subjects of a dispute over which top Obama administration officials advocated for the infamous Steele dossier to be utilized as evidence in the Russia collusion investigation.

The argument erupted into the open with a Brennan surrogate being quoted in the news media opposing Comey not long after Attorney General William Barr appointed a U.S. attorney to investigate the origins of the Russia collusion claims.

The fiasco was kicked into high gear after Fox News cited “sources familiar with the records” pointing to an email chain from late-2016 showing Comey allegedly telling FBI employees that it was Brennan who insisted that the anti-Trump dossier be included in a January 6, 2017 U.S. Intelligence Community report, known as the ICA, assessing Russian interference efforts.

Democrats Have Nowhere to Hide

Defeated Democrats are grasping at straws to impeach America’s Attorney General Bill Barr after their best hope for 2020-the collusion delusion-went up in smoke. Despite their desperate efforts to put the Russia investigation on life support, Barr is refusing to cave to their hysterics, and it may only get worse for them if Barr follows the obvious trail of evidence against Obama loyalists Brennan, Clapper, Comey, and McCabe. Instead of impeachment, Democrats’ insistence on keeping the issue alive may come back to bite them in 2020 in a very big way.

Here’s more from Real Clear Politics…

Democrats have grown infuriated by Attorney General William Barr’s indifference to their hysteria over the Trump-Russia collusion narrative.

Barr recently released a brief summary of special counsel Robert Mueller’s conclusions that Donald Trump did not collude with the Russians to warp the 2016 election. Barr added that Mueller had not found enough evidence to recommend that Trump be indicted for obstruction of justice for the non-crime of collusion.

Progressives, who for 22 months had insisted that Trump was a Russian asset, were stunned. But only for a few hours.

Almost immediately, they redirected their fury toward Barr’s summation of the Mueller report. Yet few rational people contested Barr’s synopses about collusion and obstruction.

FBI “Well Aware the Dossier was a Lie”

A new document brought to light by a Citizens United lawsuit reveals that the Obama DOJ was “well aware” that the infamous Steele dossier used to launch the RussiaGate investigation was a LIE! “[O]fficials at the FBI and DOJ were well aware the dossier was a lie-from very early on in the process all the way to when they made the conscious decision to include it in a FISA application,” CU’s Mark Meadows revealed. “The fact that Christopher Steele and his partisan research document were treated in any way seriously by our Intelligence Community leaders amounts to malpractice.” A particularly condemning line from the email from Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Kathleen Kavalec, who met with Steele in October 2016: Steele’s client “… is keen to see this information come to light prior to November 8.” That’s November 8, as in Election Day 2016. How many smoking guns need we find before indictments are issued?

Here’s more from Breitbart…

A newly-uncovered document suggests that the Obama Department of Justice (DOJ), including the FBI, was “well aware” that foreign agent Christopher Steele was trying to interfere in the 2016 presidential election with disinformation — and yet still used his materials to spy on American citizens and the Trump campaign, according to Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC).

“[O]fficials at the FBI and (Department of Justice) DOJ were well aware the dossier was a lie — from very early on in the process all the way to when they made the conscious decision to include it in a FISA application,” Meadows said Tuesday in a statement to The Hill’s John Solomon. “The fact that Christopher Steele and his partisan research document were treated in any way seriously by our Intelligence Community leaders amounts to malpractice.”

Team Obama Spied on Trump Campaign Aide

The New York Times finally admitted-without using the word “spying”-that the Obama administration did in fact spy on Trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos during the 2016 election. According to the report, the FBI sent a counterintelligence “investigator posing as an assistant” to London to meet with the Trump aide to “better understand the Trump campaign’s links to Russia.” Critics argue that this was in fact an operation not by the FBI but by the CIA under the leadership of Obama loyalist John Brennen. As we’ve argued ad nauseam, for justice to be restored, someone-perhaps even Barack Obama himself-should be indicted immediately. Else, ours is a banana republic.

Here’s more fro PJ Media…

Here is what’s on the president’s agenda today:

The president has lunch with the Secretary of State.
President Trump meets with the Prime Minister of the Slovak Republic.
The president participates in an expanded bilateral meeting with the Prime Minister of the Slovak Republic.

Are you worried about campaigns working with foreign countries for political assistance? Have I got a story for you!

From John Solomon at The Hill:

In its most detailed account yet, Ukraine’s embassy in Washington says a Democratic National Committee insider during the 2016 election solicited dirt on Donald Trump’s campaign chairman and even tried to enlist the country’s president to help.

In written answers to questions, Ambassador Valeriy Chaly’s office says DNC contractor Alexandra Chalupa sought information from the Ukrainian government on Paul Manafort’s dealings inside the country, in hopes of forcing the issue before Congress.

IG Report Could Blow Lid on Obama’s FISAgate

The highly anticipated report by Inspector General Michael Horowitz is expected to drop in the next several weeks detailing “applications filed with the U.S. Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) relating to a certain U.S. person.” That would be a Trump campaign associate: Carter Page, a Naval Academy graduate and unpaid campaign advisor, who was wiretapped by the Obama administration. The report is expected to add to the already incriminating stacks of evidence that the Obama Administration weaponized the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act for domestic political targeting against Donald Trump, and it all could come in time for Senate investigations just before 2020 heats up. Buckle up!

Here’s more from American Greatness…

The next bombshell report to drop from the Justice Department likely will earn none of the breathless fanfare and media coverage that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report received, but it could be far more incriminating.

In the next several weeks, Inspector General Michael Horowitz is expected to issue his summation of the potential abuse of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act by top officials in the Obama Administration and holdovers in the early Trump Administration who were overseeing the investigation of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign.

And the perpetrators of the so-called FISAgate scandal now are scrambling for cover as the bad news looms.

Horowitz announced last March that his office would examine the Justice Department’s conduct “in applications filed with the U.S. Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) relating to a certain U.S. person.” That U.S. person is Trump campaign associate Carter Page.

BuzzFeed “Bombshell” Shredded by Mueller Report

On Jan. 18, a now infamous BuzzFeed story erroneously revealed that estranged Trump attorney Michael Cohen “told the special counsel that after the election, the president personally instructed him to lie-by claiming that negotiations ended months earlier than they actually did-in order to obscure Trump’s involvement.” What BuzzFeed called “the first known example of Trump explicitly telling a subordinate to lie directly about his own dealings with Russia” has now been decisively debunked by Robert Mueller’s report. According to the report, “Cohen said that he and the President did not explicitly discuss whether Cohen’s testimony about the Trump Tower Moscow project would be or was false, and the President did not direct him to provide false testimony. Cohen also said he did not tell the President about the specifics of his planned testimony.” BuzzFeed’s dubious Leftist smear campaign has been exposed for everyone to see. Precisely no one can believe anything they report ever again. In other words, welcome to the MSNBC Club for Dezinformatsiya.

Here’s more from The Daily Caller…

Special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on the Russia investigation directly contradicts an explosive BuzzFeed story that claimed Mueller had evidence President Donald Trump directed Michael Cohen, his former attorney, to lie to Congress about a potential Moscow real estate deal.

The Jan. 18 BuzzFeed story claimed that Cohen “told the special counsel that after the election, the president personally instructed him to lie — by claiming that negotiations ended months earlier than they actually did — in order to obscure Trump’s involvement.”

The story claimed that Mueller’s office “learned about Trump’s directive for Cohen to lie to Congress through interviews with multiple witnesses from the Trump Organization and internal company emails, text messages, and a cache of other documents. Cohen then acknowledged those instructions during his interviews with that office.”

AG Barr Defies Dems, Releases Mueller Report

Attorney General William Barr ignored House Democrats’ demand to keep the Mueller Report under wraps, choosing instead to unveil it Thursday morning. As late as Wednesday, a group of House Democrats begged Barr not to hold the press conference, calling it “unnecessary and inappropriate” and “designed to shape public perceptions of the report before anyone can read it.” In reality, it’s more likely that the Left did not want to lose their latest opportunity to perpetuate a new “cover up” collusion conspiracy theory to dog President Trump in the run-up to 2020. Democrats’ silver bullet strategy has gone up in smoke before their eyes, and now they’ll be forced to campaign on the merit of their ideas, which, of course, is something they can’t do so well.

Here’s more from The Hill…

A group of House Democrats on Wednesday called for Attorney General William Barr to cancel his planned press conference Thursday morning ahead of the release of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report.

“The Department of Justice announced today that the Attorney General will hold a press conference tomorrow morning before Congress has even seen Special Counsel Mueller’s report,” they said in a statement.

“This press conference, which apparently will not include Special Counsel Mueller, is unnecessary and inappropriate, and appears designed to shape public perceptions of the report before anyone can read it,” they continued.

Judge: Girls Have no Rights to “Visual Bodily Privacy”

The rights of some are more equal than others according to a district judge involved in the latest case of forcing transgender “rights” in America’s public schools. According to Judge Jorge Alonso of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois Eastern Division, allowing biological boys to use biological girls’ bathrooms, showers, and locker rooms can proceed because girls have no rights to “visual bodily privacy.” In his opinion, “bodily privacy” only refers to being physically touched, not gawked at. “[S]o far, the right not to be seen unclothed by the opposite sex is not on the Supreme Court’s list,” the judge wrote. The lawsuit comes in the wake of a 2016 determination by the district to allow boys claiming to be female to use the girls’ locker rooms in order to stop the Obama Department of Education from nixing its $6 million in federal funding. If the Left prevails, all of us will eventually be liberated from our bodies, free to do whatever we want, whenever, and with/to whomever. Sounds like a perfect paradise [insert dripping sarcasm].

Here’s more from World Tribune…

While allowing a lawsuit to proceed against an Illinois school district which allows transgender students to use the facilities of their choice, a federal judge threw out the student-plaintiffs’ argument that they have the right to “bodily privacy,” saying that right refers to physically being touched by others, “not visual bodily privacy.”

Judge Jorge Alonso of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois Eastern Division is allowing a lawsuit to proceed against Chicago Township High School District 211, which adopted the Obama-era transgender policy permitting boys claiming to be female to use the girls’ bathrooms, showers, and locker rooms.

The judge informed the girls who are suing the school district, represented by Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), that, “[s]o far, the right not to be seen unclothed by the opposite sex is not on the Supreme Court’s list.”
