    BREAKING: Intel Officer Reveals How Obama Will Be ‘First President In History’ To Be Hit With a FELONY INDICTMENT

    After months of the liberal media ridiculing Trump over his claim that Obama spied on him during the election, Trump finally got vindication this week. America learned the truth on Tuesday that Obama did in fact unconstitutionally spy on Trump throughout the presidential election, leaving Barack Obama with his pants down yet again.

    Now former intelligence officer Lt. Col Tony Shaffer just revealed that Obama’s wiretapping was not only a federal crime, but says that the results of this investigation will likely result in Obama being brought up on FELONY CHARGES. The colonel’s dire prediction about Obama’s future is sending shock-waves through the black hearts of liberals all across America today, as it’s now thrown a monkey wrench into Obama’s plans to stage his “political comeback” this fall.

    In a a recent interview with Trending Today USA, Lt. Col Tony Shaffer called ‘Obamagate’ an “order of magnitude” even bigger than the Watergate scandal because the incident included “using nation-state resources for purposes of political gain.”

    When asked if Obama could be arrested for violating the law, he said that it would be the “first time a former president could be indicted for a felony.”

    Lt. Col Tony Shaffer
    “…I think it is very possible that he acted outside of the scope of his duties, responsibilities and authorities to turn the resources of a nation-state on a candidate. This is, as I’ve said before, soviet-dictator level wrongdoing,” he added.

    Shaffer said that Obama using government resources to spy on Trump was for the sole purpose of getting Hillary into office, as Obama hoped the wiretapping would produce enough “dirt” on Trump to sabotage his presidential run.


    Given Shaffer’s lengthy military career, his rise to the top of the American intelligence community, and his current senior position at the prestigious London Center for Policy Research, his prediction about Obama shouldn’t be scoffed at. Being brought up on felony charges would completely destroy Obama’s plan of making his political comeback this year, as he’d be trying to figure out a way to keep himself out of prison instead of spending his hours obsessing with ways to bring Trump down.

    The Hill reported on just how extensive Obama’s spying truly was, as this unconstitutional move wasn’t just limited to listening in on Trump’s calls. They reported:

    If these reports are accurate, it means U.S. intelligence agencies secretly surveilled at least a half dozen Trump associates. And those are just the ones we know about.

    Besides Manafort, the officials include former Trump advisers Carter Page and Michael Flynn. Last week, we discovered multiple Trump “transition officials” were “incidentally” captured during government surveillance of a foreign official. We know this because former Obama adviser Susan Rice reportedly admitted “unmasking,” or asking to know the identities of, the officials. Spying on U.S. citizens is considered so sensitive, their names are supposed to be hidden or “masked,” even inside the government, to protect their privacy.

    In May, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and former Acting Attorney General Sally Yates acknowledged they, too, reviewed communications of political figures, secretly collected under President Obama.

    After getting away with whatever the hell he wanted over the past 8 years and wiping his butt with the Constitution, it looks like Obama’s cockiness might just be his undoing. He might have gotten away with his antics in the past, but things are vastly different now that Obama doesn’t have all his minions blocking all investigations into his crimes, as was the case when he was president.

    If this colonel’s predication is in fact true, Obama’s little plan to keep trolling Trump with his little shadow government from the headquarters of his D.C. home could soon be coming to an abrupt end.
    How poetic would it be that after spending 8 years pandering to terrorists and trying to destroy America that Obama could live out the rest of his life behind bars in an orange jumpsuit? Sounds like perfect justice for America!

    Tucker Breaks Down New Trump Wiretap Report: 'Rogue' Intel Agencies or DC 'Collusion'
    VIDIO: http://insider.foxnews.com/2017/09/19/tucker-carlson-talks-cnn-trump-wiretap-report-paul-manafort-trump-tower

    Tucker Carlson discussed a new CNN report that appeared to give credence to President Trump's much-maligned suspicions that his New York City skyscraper was wiretapped during the 2016 campaign.

    Earlier this year, Trump accused former President Barack Obama of "McCarthyism" and alleged he wiretapped Trump Tower, going on to compare his suspicions to that of Watergate.

    As Carlson recounted, that assertion was met with bipartisan derision and dismissal.

    Republican Sen. Richard Burr of North Carolina and Democrat Mark Warner of Virginia - the two top men on the Intel Committee - dismissed Trump's claim out-of-hand.

    Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) said there was no evidence of the claim, and left-wing media personalities raked the president for making such an unusual accusation.

    However, Carlson said that the CNN report that former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort - who had a residence in Trump Tower - was wiretapped by federal agents showed how Trump's claim may not be that off-base.

    "Either intelligence agencies are going rogue... or our officials are colluding with one another to lie to the public for political reasons," he said. "Last year's election terrified the permanent class here [in D.C.]."

    "In an ironic twist, [Washington, D.C.] has become exactly what they claim to oppose," he said, alleging that they "colluded to push a collusion narrative" against Trump involving Russian actors.

    "Then, they lie about it in the name of protecting democracy to subvert a democratic vote," he said.

    Judge Nap Reacts to Report Manafort Was Wiretapped Before & After Election
    http://insider.foxnews.com/2017/09/19/paul-manafort-was-wiretapped-us-investigators-judge-napolitano-reacts

    Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort was wiretapped by U.S. government investigators both before and after the 2016 presidential election, according to a new report.

    Manafort is a key figure in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russia’s involvement with the election.

    On "Fox & Friends," Judge Andrew Napolitano explained that the FBI obtained a warrant from a FISA court to surveil Manafort in 2014 because of his work with the pro-Russia political party in Ukraine. That warrant was discontinued, but investigators received another one that extended into the beginning of this year.

    He said it's not clear if this new one is a FISA or a regular Article III judge warrant, which he said is a "real serious distinction."

    He explained that to obtain the latter, investigators would have to present a federal judge with evidence of crimes committed by Manafort or the people he was speaking to.

    "Were they listening to Paul Manafort during the campaign in order to find out what Donald Trump was going to do next in the campaign and help Hillary? Were they listening to Paul Manafort because they thought he had committed a crime? Were they listening to Paul Manafort because they were looking for something with which to tarnish the future president?" Napolitano said.

    "I think there's more to be heard."

    Huckabee: Why Manafort Wiretap Should Be 'Frightening' for Every American
    http://insider.foxnews.com/2017/09/19/huckabee-why-paul-manafort-wiretapping-report-frightening

    Former Donald Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort was wiretapped by U.S. government investigators both before and after the 2016 presidential election, according to a CNN report.

    Manafort is a key figure in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russia’s involvement in the election.

    On "Outnumbered" today, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee said the question is: "Why did they engage in that wiretap?"

    "This is frightening," he said, arguing that this should matter to every American citizen.

    "If your government can just decide that it's going to tap into your phones because you played a political role that somebody in the government didn't want you to play, I'm sorry, that scares the bejeebies out of me," Huckabee said.

    He explained that if the federal government wants to "get you," they will find a way.

    "It may not be that they end up getting you for what they went after, but there are enough statutes on the books," Huckabee said. "There are a lot of people I've known personally who have been bankrupted, their reputations ruined. They ended up winning, but they were finished."

    "The federal government is using your tax dollars to come after you, and you have to use your own dollars to fight them off."

    Deep State Spied on both Trump and Sen Sessions, 1805

    Good afternoon, I’m still reporting on:  Deep State Spied on both Trump and Sen  Sessions, 1805
    Synopsis:   Tom Fitton, President of Judicial Watch says that the Deep State was spying on both candidate Trump and Senator Jeff Sessions as part of an overall strategy to elect Hillary Clinton and defeat Donald Trump.

    This is bad – really bad stuff. This is unprecedented – even worse than the Watergate spying attempts. Congress and the White House needs to take much stronger action to shut this down immediately.

    Who Is Blocking the Clinton Emails?, 1802

    Synopsis: Tom Fitton, the head of Judicial Watch, just released his weekly update, but there are so many astonishing insider revelations that it had my head spinning. So, I’ll break it up into two or more pieces.
    Here Fitton explains why he is still having to fight in court for every Clinton email disclosure.
    [insert]
    So that’s the importance of the Democrats blocking all the new Trump appointees. Folks like Jeff Sessions are outnumbered in the Injustice Department by what – a thousand to one.

    So I wonder how that works? Does AG Sessions put out a memo of an intended action and then ask for a vote within his department?

    In other words, when it comes to the Clintons’ 25-year reign in Washington, they are above the rule of law, and everyone who has protected them over the years is above the rule of law as well.

    Why Did Lois Lerner Walk?, 1804 (IRS Scandal)

    Synopsis: In another more lawful time, the Lois Lerner / John Kosekin IRS scandal would have been front-page news in the Washington Post for months on end.

    But during the lawless years of the Obama administration, the IRS scandal was dwarfed by not only the magnitude of the other scandals, but the sheer number of them – Benghazi – the Hillary Clinton emails which revealed not only thousands of felonies for security violations but pay-for-play and bribery that in some cases went into pure treason.

    You need go no further than the Russian Uranium One deal, as just one example.

    Then there is the still unfolding Debbie Wasserman Schultz scandal which may yet yield a treasonous pipeline for highly-classified information from Congressional intelligence committees out to enemies of the United States.

    And that’s not even to mention the alleged and ever-growing Clinton Crime Syndicate’s mysterious death’s list.

    I’ve said it before, but it bears repeating. This overarching fear of the Clintons has hung over the nation’s capitol like a seething, black cloud since they arrived in 1992 carrying this reputation with them from Arkansas.

    The most concise explanation of what happened in the IRS scandal was tucked into the weekly Judicial Watch update. To summarize, nothing will be done because the Jim Comey FBI, and the Lorretta Lynch InJustice Department to illegally conspire with the IRS to have them give them one million records on Americans’ so they could go after people on Obama/Clinton yet-to-be revealed enemies list, to try to suppress anti-Clinton votes during the election season.

    Mueller Investigation Desperate As More Information About Obama’s Illegal Spying Is Uncovered
    September 24, 2017
    http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2017/09/mueller-investigation-desperate-as-more-information-about-obamas-illegal-spying-is-uncovered/

    The Mueller Investigation is Getting Desperate to Find A Crime, Any Crime.

    As more information comes out about the illegal spying by the Obama Administration, Mueller is under more and more pressure to find or make up a crime related to President Trump.

    It is time to deal with the corruption and criminal conduct in the Department of Justice, Criminal Intelligence Agency, Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and shut down the criminal and corrupt Mueller investigation.

    Americans during the election demanded the future President deal with the corruption and criminal conduct in Washington DC. President Trump’s rally participants chanted : “Drain the Swamp” at nearly every rally.

    It’s amazing that the most important and emotional demands that Americans wanted from this President when he was campaigning were captured in these two slogans!

    All Americans knew that Hillary Clinton was given a pass by the MSM, FBI and DOJ for receiving money for providing uranium to Russia. She was guilty of mishandling emails and destroying evidence related to her illegal email account. And now we know that President Obama helped her campaign by spying on the Trump team during the election and after his election win. Obama’s years in office boiled over with corruption.

    Former Clinton aide Dick Morris told the Gateway Pundit that the CIA is currently running a coup d’état against President Trump as if tanks were rolling up Pennsylvania Avenue.

    The FBI and DOJ under President Obama were transformed into corrupt organizations. How else could Obama get away with so much crime, corruption and lies?

    The corrupt individuals leading these formerly proud institutions must be removed and brought to justice.

    Dick Morris suggests that President Trump open an investigation on the Mueller investigation.

    Mueller’s investigation is a farce and now Clarice Feldman at American Thinker reports that Mueller’s team is getting desperate to find any crime related to Trump:

    I agree with Daniel Greenfield. Based on what I’ve read and observed, while the initial surveillance was to stop Trump and help Clinton, Obama used FISA to provide a “national security” cover for politically spying on Trump right up to the inauguration. As he notes, the first 2016 application was made the month after Trump obtained the nomination and the second in October, the month before the election.

    As the unmasking picked up pace after the election, the reasonable assumption is that its purpose was to undo the results of the election or hamstring the incoming President.

    Now Obama and his allies are or should be terrified that the scope of the illegal surveillance is revealing their criminal acts.


    This is why I believe Mueller is growing increasingly desperate to find one crime by one person he can force by threat of jail to provide any shred of anything that might be used to justify their illegal espionage. Greenfield’s conclusion is apt: “The left is sitting on the biggest crime committed by a sitting president. The only way to cover it up is to destroy his Republican successor. A turning point in history is here. If Obama goes down, the left will go down with him. If his coup succeeds, then America ends.”

    The current US Attorney General is either over his head or part of the swamp. He recused himself from the phony Russia scandal and left our President open for attack. He’s the man in charge when the FBI recently declined a request for information related to the Hillary Clinton email investigation. He let crooked IRS officials walk after targeting thousands of conservative Americans. Sessions should either address the corruption in his shop or the President should find someone who will.

    It’s time to bring Mueller, the FBI, the Department of Justice, the CIA and former President Obama and his corrupt and criminal teams to justice.

    Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee reportedly want another special prosecutor to investigate the 2016 presidential election — this one focusing on possible wrongdoing by Hillary Clinton and other Democrats.

    According to NBC News, Rep. Bob Goodlatte of Virginia and his fellow Judiciary Republicans have sent a letter to the Justice Department saying that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s mandate is narrow and does not address some remaining issues from the race.

    Their letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein mentions actions taken by such Obama administration officials as Mrs. Clinton, then FBI Director James Comey and then Attorney General Loretta Lynch.

    The counsel needs to investigate such issues as whether Ms. Lynch told Mr. Comey to mislead the public about the Clinton investigation, grants of immunity to possible co-conspirators in the Clinton email probe, and the “unmasking” of Americans caught up in surveillance of foreigners.

    Verified in Hillary emails between her and Huma Abadin via WikiLeaks. Paul Ryan has been repeated identified as working against the President both before and after the election along with doing whatever he can to shut down the President's agenda. He wants to be President and would be as Speaker of the House if something were to happen to President Trump and Pence.

    POLITICS
    What’s True, False And In-Between In The Trump Dossier?

    http://dailycaller.com/2017/09/25/whats-true-false-and-in-between-in-the-trump-dossier/
    09/25/2017

    The infamous Trump dossier: Democrats say key parts of it have been proved accurate and Republicans claim it has been debunked.

    But the truth about the salacious document, written last year by former British spy Christopher Steele, lies somewhere in the middle.

    An analysis of the 35-page document by The Daily Caller shows that a vast majority of its claims have neither been proved nor disproved. Many are under dispute; others are the subject of defamation lawsuits.

    Democrats are correct in one regard. The parts of the dossier that describe in general terms a Russian plot to meddle in the presidential campaign have been backed up by the U.S. intelligence community, which says there is ample evidence that Russia interfered in the presidential campaign. But none of the specific claims about the Trump team’s involvement have been verified. And some of those specific claims have been vehemently denied by Trump and his associates.

    Here is a review of the dossier’s claims, in chronological order. Some are quoted directly from the dossier while others are paraphrased.

    June 20, 2016

    “The Russian authorities had been cultivating and supporting US Republican presidential candidate, Donald Trump for at least 5 years.”


    Unsubstantiated. Trump has adamantly denied receiving any help from the Russian government.

    “The Kremlin had been feeding Trump and his team valuable intelligence on his opponents, including Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, for several years.”

    Unsubstantiated. The Trump campaign has denied receiving help from the Kremlin during the campaign. But the date of this Steele memo — June 20 — is significant because it followed 11 days after the now-infamous Trump Tower meeting attended by Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner, campaign chairman Paul Manafort and a group of Russian lobbyists. Trump Jr. accepted the meeting after he was offered damaging information about Clinton. But he claims that no such information was provided.

    “The Kremlin’s cultivation operation on Trump had also comprised offering him various lucrative real estate development deals in Russia.”

    Unsubstantiated. Trump and his real estate company did discuss real estate projects in Russia, but there has been no evidence produced so far that those were part of a Kremlin “cultivation operation” of Trump.

    Russians sought to “exploit Trump’s personal obsessions and sexual perversions to obtain suitable ‘kompromot’ [compromising material] on him.” Kremlin operatives filmed Trump in compromising positions in a Moscow hotel.

    Unsubstantiated.
    In a press conference just after BuzzFeed published the dossier on Jan. 10, Trump called the sex allegations “phony stuff.”

    “The Clinton dossier was controlled exclusively by chief Kremlin spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, who was responsible for compiling/handling it on the explicit instructions of Putin himself.”

    Unsubstantiated.
    While U.S. intelligence officials do believe that Putin was directly involved in the campaign meddling — a claim that the Kremlin denies — no evidence has been produced showing that Peskov personally handled the project. Some Russia observers have questioned why Putin’s chief spokesman would be in charge of the collusion operation.

    July 19-30

    “There was a well-developed conspiracy of co-operation between [the Trump campaign] and the Russian leadership.”

    Unsubstantiated.
    Trump and his campaign have adamantly denied the allegation.

    “This was managed on the Trump side by the Republican candidate’s campaign manager, Paul Manafort, who was using foreign policy advisor, Carter Page, and others as intermediaries.”

    Unsubstantiated.
    Both Manafort and Page say they do not know each other. Page, who served in a small volunteer role on the campaign, has also never met Trump. He has repeatedly denied the allegations against him in the Steele document, which he calls the “dodgy dossier.”

    “The Russian regime had been behind the recent leak of embarrassing e-mail messages, emanating from the [DNC], to the WikiLeaks platform.”

    True.
    The CIA, FBI, National Security Agency and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence all agree that Russian operatives hacked DNC emails and used WikiLeaks as a cutout to make them public.

    “The operation had been conducted with the full knowledge and support of Trump and senior members of the campaign team.”  

    Unsubstantiated.
    Trump and his campaign have denied the allegation, and no evidence has been released that supports the collusion claim.

    “Russian diplomatic staff in key cities like New York, Washington and Miami were using the emigre ‘pension’ distribution system as cover.”    

    Unsubstantiated.
    While this dossier claim has not been proved, it has been reported that U.S. investigators are looking into whether a pension system that the Russian government uses to pay soldiers living abroad was used as cover to finance covert actions during the presidential campaign. What is not known is whether investigators began looking into that independent of the dossier or whether Steele’s reports prompted the probe.

    July 19

    Igor Sechin, a crony of Putin’s and the CEO of Russian oil giant Rosneft, met secretly with Carter Page during a trip that the Trump campaign adviser made to Moscow in early July. Sechin allegedly brought up the possibility of removing Ukraine-related sanctions against Russia, which Page allegedly “reacted positively” to. Page also met secretly with senior Kremlin official Igor Divyekin.

    Unsubstantiated.
    Page did visit Moscow during the time that the dossier claims. But the visit, where Page gave a speech at the New Economic School, had been revealed in the press by the time Steele made this allegation. Page has denied ever meeting Sechin and Divyekin, though he has spoken positively about the former and said he would be honored to meet him one day.

    Page is suing the parent company of Yahoo! News for republishing these claims. Yahoo! reporter Michael Isikoff wrote a Sept. 23, 2016 article based on the allegations, which he had apparently learned about after meeting with Steele and Fusion GPS, the opposition research firm that hired Steele. (RELATED: Carter Page Sues Yahoo! Over Dossier Story)

    “An intelligence exchange had been running between [the Trump team and Kremlin] for at least 8 years.”

    Unsubstantiated.
    No evidence has been produced to support this claim, and the Trump campaign has denied it.

    “Putin’s priority requirement” in the information exchange with Trump world was to obtain information about Russian oligarchs and their families. Trump and his associates supplied the information.  

    Unsubstantiated.
    Neither the Russian government nor Trumpworld has addressed the claim.

    “The Kremlin had more intel on Clinton and her campaign.”

    True.
    At the time the memo was written, Russian operatives had already hacked into the email account of Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta. WikiLeaks would begin publishing those hacked emails in October. U.S. intelligence officials have said that there is ample evidence pointing to Russia being behind the hacks.

    Aug. 10

    Carter Page “conceived and promoted” the idea of releasing hacked DNC emails through WikiLeaks.

    Unsubstantiated.
    Page has denied allegations in the dossier. Trump and senior members of the campaign have denied that Page offered any significant input to the campaign.

    Sept. 14

    “The Kremlin had further ‘kompromat’ on candidate Clinton and had been considering releasing this via ‘plausibly deniable’ channels after the Duma (legislative) elections were out of the way in mid-September.”  

    True.
    WikiLeaks would begin releasing Podesta emails a month after Steele wrote this claim in the dossier.

    Russian diplomat Mikhail Kalugin was withdrawn from Washington at short notice because of his “heavy involvement in the US presidential election operation.” Kalugin took part in the veterans’ pension “ruse” to help fund the active measures campaign.

    Partially True.
    Kalugin was called back from Washington, D.C. at the time that the dossier claims he was. But he denied to McClatchy that he was involved in paying any operatives to influence the election. McClatchy also reported that the FBI was investigating whether Russia’s intelligence agency, the FSB, used a pension system for former Russian soldiers to disguise payments for hackers who targeted the campaign. The status of that investigation is unclear.

    Sept. 14

    Trump participated in sex parties in St. Petersburg and paid bribes to make the stories “disappear.” Azerbaijani-Russian billionaire Aras Agalarov would know the details.

    Unsubstantiated
    . Trump does know Agalarov. They partnered on a deal to host the 2013 Miss Universe pageant in Russia. The Agalarov family was also involved in the June 9, 2016 Trump Tower meeting. It was set up at the request of Agalarov’s son, Emin.

    Oct. 20

    “Clandestine meeting between…Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen and Kremlin representatives in August 2016.” The meeting too place in Prague    

    False
    . Cohen has vehemently denied the allegations that he met with Kremlin representatives to discuss collusion and that he traveled to Prague. Cohen has provided photos of his passport showing that he has never visited Prague. CNN reported just after the dossier was published in January that the document referred to a different Michael Cohen who had visited Prague. (RELATED: Government Source Says Trump’s Personal Lawyer Was Not In Prague)

    A Kremlin-controlled cultural exchange group called Rossotrudnichestvo “was being used as cover for this relationship and its office in Prague may well have been used to host the Cohen meeting/s.”

    Unsubstantiated.
    In addition to Cohen’s denial that he was in Prague, there has been no evidence produced that Rossotrudnichestvo was involved in helping the Trump campaign.

    “Konstantin Kosachev (head of the Foreign Relations Committee) is an important figure in the Trump campaign-Kremlin liaison operation.”

    Unsubstantiated.
    Kosachev has denied involvement.

    Mid-October

    Rosneft CEO Igor Sechin offered Carter Page a 19 percent brokerage stake on a deal involving the Russian oil giant in return for getting sanctions lifted if Trump was elected president. Page expressed interest in the proposal.

    Unsubstantiated.
    Page has denied ever meeting Sechin or being offered a brokerage deal for Rosneft.

    Dec. 13

    “A company called XBT/Webzilla and its affiliates had been using botnets and porn traffic to trasmit viruses, plant bugs, steal data and conduct ‘altering operations’ against the Democratic party leadership. Entities linked to one Aleksej Gubarev were involved and he and another expert, both recruited under duress by the FSB, Seva Kapsugovich, were significant players in this operation.”

    Unsubstantiated.
    Gubarev is suing BuzzFeed and Steele for publishing the dossier containing this allegation. BuzzFeed later apologized to Gubarev and redacted his name from the dossier.

    McClatchy has also reported that Kapsugovich appears to have been in prison when the dossier claims he was involved in the hacking scheme.
    Steele acknowledged in April in a court filing in London, where he is being sued by Gubarev, that the Dec. 13 memo had not been verified.

    Steve Bannon: I Wear Mitch McConnell’s Contempt as Badge of Honor – They Have Helped Destroy This Country (Video)
    September 25, 2017 by Jim Hoft
    Steve Bannon went on with Sean Hannity in his first live interview since leaving the White House.
    Steve Bannon blasted establishment Republican class:

    A real review has to be made on how President Trump got the wrong information and how President Trump came down on the wrong side of the football here…

    This is a referendum on the party of Davos and the elites in Davos and the United States and Washington DC that Mitch McConnell is the face of. Tomorrow the good folks of Alabama are going to decide. Does sovereignty rest with the people or does it rest with money. Is it going to be the muscle of the grassroots or the money of the corrupt and incompetent permanent political class that rules Washington DC like a new aristocracy…

    The elites represented by Mitch McConnell hold me in contempt. They think I’m a bad guy, they think I’m a dangerous guy. I wear their contempt as a badge of honor. They have helped destroy this country. They have done nothing but allow economic hate crimes against the working men and women in the heartland of this country. The factories went to China and the drugs came in. We gotta stop it.

    It’s good to see Steve Bannon still has that fire in his belly!

    On Tuesday it will be the establishment elites led by Mitch McConnell versus the common man led by Steve Bannon and fellow conservatives.

    The Gateway Pundit website supports Judge Roy Moore

    Roger Stone, a longtime political adviser to Donald Trump, released his opening statement Monday that he plans to deliver to the House Intelligence Committee Tuesday.

    The House Intelligence Committee is investigating alleged Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and invited Stone to testify behind closed doors, despite Stone’s requests for an open hearing.

    “I am most interested in correcting a number of falsehoods, misstatements, and misimpressions regarding allegations of collusion between Donald Trump, Trump associates, the Trump Campaign and the Russian state,” Stone writes in the opening statement he provided to The Daily Caller.

    “I view this as a political proceeding because a number of members of this Committee have made irresponsible, indisputably, and provably false statements in order to create the impression of collusion with the Russian state without any evidence that would hold up in a US court of law or the court of public opinion.”

    The famed political operative known as a “dirty trickster” goes on to write, “There is one ‘trick’ that is not in my bag and that is treason.”

    The opening statement includes rebuttals to remarks from members of the committee that Stone says are false.

    One example is ranking member Adam Schiff’s comments in a hearing asking, “Is it a coincidence that Roger Stone predicted that John Podesta would be a victim of a Russian hack and have his private emails published, and did so even before Mr. Podesta himself was fully aware that [his] private emails would be exposed?”

    However, Stone never made this prediction and simply tweeted, “Trust me, it will soon be the Podesta’s time in the barrel.”

    “Note, that my Tweet of August 21, 2016, makes no mention, whatsoever, of Mr. Podesta’s email, but does accurately predict that the Podesta brothers’ business activities in Russia with the oligarchs around Putin, their uranium deal, their bank deal, and their Gazprom deal, would come under public scrutiny,” Stone says in the statement. “Podesta’s activities were later reported by media outlets as diverse as the Wall Street Journal and Bloomberg.”Stone’s opening statement concludes: “Based on what we know now, it is clear that there was a foreign nation which was colluding with a presidential campaign in an attempt to influence the outcome of the 2016 presidential election. Therefore, I strongly urge this Committee to investigate the numerous, publicly documented contacts between Ukraine and the Clinton campaign, particularly in light of recent public reports that Ukraine is now providing sophisticated missile technology to North Korea.”

    Files Show US Authorities Focusing on Antifa Instead of Far-Right Groups
    https://sputniknews.com/military/201709261057716980-declassified-files-antifa-extremist/

    US authorities are concentrating their efforts on cracking down Antifa, rather than violent right-wing groups, declassified files have revealed. Documents released by Homeland Security's Northern California Regional Intelligence Center (NCRIC) reveal US law enforcement agencies seemingly prioritize battling the Antifa movement rather than white supremacists and other extreme right-wing groups.

    How Antifa is Way Different Than the Far-Right

    "We must not lose sight of the heightened threat posed by violent domestic terrorism extremists. The current political climate has brought many violent extremists to participate in, co-opt, and counter-protest at politically-motivated rallies throughout the United States. There's been at least five violent clashes between anti-fascist and white supremacist extremists at rallies in California throughout the last 17 months, leading to multiple stabbings and other serious injuries," the threat briefing reads.

    It goes on to suggest lone actors and "small cells" are "likely" to continue to pose a threat of lethal violence, and the often spontaneous and opportunistic nature of such violence challenges prevention efforts — especially as they continue to evolve over time.

    Elsewhere in the documents is a presentation on the Antifa movement prepared for UC Berkeley ahead of conservative commentator Ben Shapiro's speaking tour, titled "Criminal Threats to First Amendment Protected Activities."

    The rally went ahead despite official fears of Antifa violence, and in the end there were a comparatively meager 13 arrests — some reports even suggested non-Antifa protesters thanked Antifa for attending.

    GOP Senator: Two Witnesses Exist Who Testified Against Comey
    – Say He Knew He Wouldn’t Prosecute Hillary Months Before Probe Ended

    http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2017/09/gop-senator-two-witnesses-exist-testified-comey-say-knew-wouldnt-prosecute-hillary-months-probe-ended/

    Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) held a hearing on Tuesday September 26, 2017, on the senate investigation of James Comey and the crimes of Hillary Clinton.

    Grassley told the audience that the FBI refused to turn over any information on James Comey – Hillary Clinton email investigation.

    Grassley also revealed they put gag orders on all fbi members investigating which has never been done, but the biggest shell he dropped was that after seeing witness testimony james comey decided to draft exonerating hillary clinton months before the investigation was even over.

    Senator Chuck Grassley: We managed to obtain two heavily redacted witness interviews. They show that Mr. Comey had made up his mind and started drafting his controversial announcements months before the investigation was over. But we were not consulted or even informed on the FBI insistence that OSC had agreed to the gag order until after the fact. According to the OSC the FBI has never asked for such a gag order before. Why now? Why was the FBI so focused on keeping Congress in the dark? Why is it so afraid of shining the light of day on the controversial statements Mr. Comey made during the months before he was fired? This isn’t the first time the FBI has tried this trick…

    All Russian Roads Lead to DNC:
    Russian Purchased Facebook Ads Promoted Hillary Clinton and Black Lives Matter

    Another Screaming Headline — Another Media Hoax

    On September 6, 2017, liberal media elites believed they found the missing link between Donald Trump and the Putin regime.

    A Russian firm linked to pro-Kremlin propaganda had advertised on Facebook during the election. The company spent only $100,000 on the Facebook ads but liberals believed this was enough to flip the election to Trump.

    Trump was right.

    The Russian Facebook ads promoted Hillary Clinton and Black Lives Matter.
    Via Reddit The Donald:




    Sept 25 WaPo article: “Ads highlighted support for Democrat Hillary Clinton.”
    All Russian roads lead to DNC.
    Will Mueller investigate this?

    Rush Limbaugh Reads Gateway Pundit:
    Mueller Investigation Desperate As Obama Crimes Are Uncovered

    http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2017/09/rush-limbaugh-reads-gateway-pundit-mueller-investigation-desperate-obama-crimes-uncovered/

    Rush shared this with his TV Audience:

    I said “Donald Trump runs the Department of Justice.” Now, let’s look at the Mueller investigation. I have a story here. It’s at Gateway Pundit. Headline: “Mueller Investigation Desperate As More Information About Obama’s Illegal Spying Is Uncovered.”

    Do you realize what’s happening here? The Mueller investigation keeps hiring people, and they can’t find a crime. There wasn’t a Trump crime that got the special counsel going. Remember we’ve talked about this. The special counsel regulation, law, whatever it is, specifies that the attorney general or acting attorney general has to have an underlying crime for which a special counsel to pursue. Well, this doesn’t have that.

    They had nothing but allegations of collusion with the Russians based on a phony dossier put together with Democrat operatives working with the Russians. You know, the golden showers dossier. There’s nothing in it that’s true, and it forms the basis of the Mueller investigation. It formed the basis of the Obama effort to get Trump investigated in the first place. There’s nothing there. And Mueller hasn’t found it.

    What’s to be found, though, there was election rigging. It happened in the Democrat Party. There were crimes that Hillary Clinton committed with her email server. An election was rigged, and it has been documented, and it can be proven. And it happened on the Democrat side. And it happened with Debbie “Blabbermouth” Schultz and Hillary Clinton.

    Now, my point here is that I wouldn’t be surprised if the Mueller investigation is discovering some of this stuff and they’re frustrated. This is not what they want to find. They can’t find any Trump crimes, is what I’m hearing. They continue to search in vain for a Trump crime.

    Thank you for the shout-out Rush!

    Former Secret Service Agent Who Worked With Hillary Clinton Savages Her in Viral Tweet
    September 26, 2017 by Cristina Laila
    http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2017/09/former-secret-service-agent-worked-hillary-clinton-savages-viral-tweet/

    Former Secret Service agent, Dan Bongino destroyed Hillary Clinton early Tuesday morning on Twitter. Bongino, who joined the Secret Service in 1999 is very outspoken about his contempt for Hillary Clinton.

    Early Tuesday morning Bongino sent out a tweet revealing what it was like working for Hillary Clinton while he was a Secret Service agent. He said, “I worked with Hillary. Hillary is an obnoxious, rude, condescending, fraud who cares about ONE thing-herself.” OUCH!

    In less than 24 hours his tweet has been re-tweeted over 7,800 times with over 15,000 ‘likes’ and it’s still rolling!

    People who have worked for Hillary Clinton often say the same thing about her temperament as Bongino did in his tweet. With President Trump it is quite the opposite. People who have worked for Trump always praise him for his kind nature and compassion.

    Bongino often rails against corrupt Democrats. He recently called Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-CA) a fraud for supporting illegal leaks of sensitive information coming out of the White House.

    “You know, Maxine Waters is a fraud. And I don’t use that term lightly. I can prove it to you. She’s an actual fraud,” Bongino said on “Fox & Friends.”

    “Maxine Waters swore to uphold the Constitution of the United States….she’s then suggesting on a national television show that people should violate the law, violate the Constitution of the United States and break the law…to advance her sick political agenda for impeachment for a crime that doesn’t exist?”

    BREAKING: Republicans Renew Call For SECOND SPECIAL COUNSEL to Investigate Hillary, Comey and Lynch
    http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2017/09/breaking-republicans-renew-call-second-special-counsel-investigate-hillary-comey-lynch/

    In July, Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee requested a second special counsel separate from Robert Mueller to probe aspects of the 2016 election and actions by the Obama administration including Hillary Clinton.


    In light of reports that Comey ended the FBI investigation into Hillary’s emails before interviewing seventeen key witnesses including Hillary herself, Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee renewed called for a second special counsel Tuesday.

    Excerpt of the letter can be read below or click here to read full text.

    September 26, 2017
    Dear Attorney General Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein:

    We write to renew this Committee’s recent call for a second special counsel, to investigate matters which may be outside the scope of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. Such a step is even more critical given the recent revelation that former FBI Director James Comey had prepared a statement ending the investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, before interviewing at least 17 key witnesses, including the former Secretary herself. At least one former career FBI supervisor has characterized this action as “so far out of bounds it’s not even in the stadium,” and “clearly communicating to [FBI executive staff] where the investigation was going to go.”

    Among those witnesses the FBI failed to interview prior to the Director’s preparation of his statement were Cheryl Mills and Heather Samuelson, both of whom were close Clinton aides with extensive knowledge of the facts surrounding the establishment of a private email server.  Last year, this Committee inquired repeatedly of the Justice Department about the facts surrounding Ms. Mills’ and Ms. Samuelson’s involvement.  Our inquiries were largely ignored.  Recently, we wrote to you to request responses to those and other unanswered questions pertaining to the Clinton investigation.  We have not received a response.  However, as the most recent Comey revelations make clear, ignoring this problem will not make it go away.

    As we pointed out at the time, both Ms. Mills and Ms. Samuelson received immunity for their cooperation in the Clinton investigation, but were nevertheless permitted to sit in on the interview of Secretary Clinton.  That, coupled with the revelation that the Director had already drafted an exoneration statement, strongly suggests that the interview was a mere formality, and that the Director had already decided the case would be closed.


    Why, indeed.  Perhaps it was because, just as the Comey revelation suggests, the decision had already been made – prior to the interview of Secretary Clinton, Ms. Mills, Ms. Samuelson, or any of the other 14 potential witnesses – that Secretary Clinton would not be charged with any crimes for her conduct.  President Obama had indicated as much, by stating publicly at the time that although Secretary Clinton showed “carelessness” in conducting government business on a private server, she had no intent to endanger national security.  Of course, Secretary Clinton’s supposed lack of “intent to harm national security” is a red herring, since the law merely requires the government to show “gross negligence.”

    Moreover, we note that not only did the former Director end the investigation prematurely — and potentially at the direction, tacit or otherwise, of President Obama — but he did so while declining to record the interviews of former Secretary Clinton or any of her close associates, as provided for by DOJ policy.  The policy states:

    This policy establishes a presumption that the Federal Bureau
    of Investigation (FBI), the Drug Enforcement Administration
    (DEA), the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives
    (ATF), and the United States Marshals Service (USMS) will
    electronically record statements made by individuals in their
    custody.

    This policy also encourages agents and prosecutors to consider
    electronic recording in investigative or other circumstances where
    the presumption does not apply.  The policy encourages agents and
    prosecutors to consult with each other in such circumstances.


    Despite this, the DOJ and FBI declined to exercise their discretion to record the interview of former Secretary Clinton.  This is truly inexplicable, given that the case was of keen national interest and importance, and involved a former Secretary of State and candidate for President of the United States who was accused of violating the Espionage Act.  It only reinforces the sense that our nation’s top law enforcement officials conspired to sweep the Clinton “matter” under the rug, and that there is, truly, one system for the powerful and politically well-connected, and another for everyone else.

    In this case, it appears that Director Comey and other senior Justice Department and government officials may have pre-judged the “matter” before all the facts were known, thereby ensuring former Secretary Clinton would not be charged for her criminal activity.  We implore you to name a second special counsel, to investigate this and other matters related to the 2016 election, including the conduct of the Justice Department regarding the investigation into Secretary Clinton’s private email server.

    Guest post by Michael LaChance at American Lookout:

    A far left Antifa rioter in Portland, Oregon is heading to jail for five years for his involvement in an incident that left a police car burned.

    Here is video of antifa activist Damion Feller torching a Portland police car.




    It’s good to see one of these thugs suffering the consequences of their actions.


    The Oregonian reports:

    Man who threw flare into cop car during May 1 protests gets 5 years

    A 23-year-old man who threw burning flares into a Portland police cruiser and the downtown Target store during May 1 protests that overran downtown Portland admitted guilt Monday and will be sentenced to five years in prison.

    A local TV station aired live footage of Damion Zachary Feller hurling a flare through a shattered picture window at Target, prompting employees to run with fire extinguishers to put out a burning section of carpet. TV and cellphone cameras also caught Feller throwing a flare through the shattered window of a battered police SUV parked across the street from Target, at Southwest 10th Avenue and Morrison.

    Other people clad all in black or wearing masks can be seen on the videos kicking or whacking windows of the police car seconds before Feller swoops in with the flares.

    Police identified Feller as among a group of about 20 anarchists who descended on downtown as peaceful May Day protesters spoke about a variety of social issues. Officers arrested 25 people that day for vandalizing property, setting fires, throwing rocks and other violence.

    This guy threw his life away for something so dumb.
    Don’t these folks have anything better to do with their lives?

    The Still Report: There's a New Sheriff in town.

    Good afternoon, I’m still reporting on:  New Sheriff at the Justice Dept , 1810

    Synopsis:  In our last report we ask again, just what is Attorney General Jeff Sessions waiting for?

    We have numerous criminals loose in the United States – holdovers of the Clinton Crime Syndicate who have either been given immunity, or just let go by the previous InJustice Department.

    Well, this may be the answer. There’s a new Sheriff in town.

    Jeff Sessions has finally appointed a new Chief of Staff – possibly the Clinton Cabal’s worst nightmare. Meet former US Attorney Matt Whitaker.

    According to a Sept. 14th report on the Radio Iowa website, Iowan Matthew Whitaker of Clive, Iowa, has been appointed as the new Chief of Staff for the Justice Department. Whitaker will become the boss of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, the man who appointed Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

    Whitaker, who played football for the Univ. of Iowa, was appointed in 2004 by President Bush as the US Attorney for the Southern District of Iowa in 2004, a position which he held for over 5 years. Whitaker then founded the Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust (FACT), a conservative watchdog group. He recently wrote an opinion piece for The Hill saying the connection between Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign and the Ukraine needed to be investigated.

    He has also written that there was a “strong case” against former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and that she should be “extremely grateful” she wasn’t prosecuted.

    Last Friday, the HuffPost wrote the following:

    “Attorney General Jeff Sessions has appointed as his chief of staff a former federal prosecutor who has written that the special counsel investigation into the Trump administration could be turning into a ‘witch hunt.’”

    Quoting Whitaker:

    “Mueller has come up to a red line in the Russia 2016 election-meddling investigation that he is dangerously close to crossing.”

    “If he were to continue to investigate the financial relationships without a broadened scope in his appointment, then this would raise serious concerns that the special counsel’s investigation was a mere witch hunt.”


    Again, according to last Friday’s Huff Post:

    “Whitaker wrote that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, with whom he’ll now be working closely with as Sessions’ chief of staff, should:

    “…act to ensure the investigation is within its jurisdiction and within the authority of the original directive.”


    Strong language from the new Sheriff in town. Perhaps this represents a return to the rule of law in the United States.

    Awan Funneling ‘Massive’ Data Off Congressional Server, Dems Claim It’s Child’s HOMEWORK
    09/26/2017
    http://dailycaller.com/2017/09/26/awan-funneling-massive-data-off-congressional-server-dems-claim-its-childs-homework/?utm_medium=email

    Democratic congressional aides made unauthorized access to a House server 5,400 times and funneled “massive” amounts of data off of it. But there’s nothing to see here, Democrats told The Washington Post: They were just storing and then re-downloading homework assignments for Imran Awan’s elementary-school aged kids and family pictures.

    A congressional source with direct knowledge of the incident contradicted the Post’s account, saying that now-indicted IT aide Imran Awan and his associates “were moving terabytes off-site so they could quote ‘work on the files'” and that they desperately tried to hide what was on the server when caught, providing police with what law enforcement immediately recognized as falsified evidence and an indication of criminal intent.

    WATCH ROSIAK’S REPORTING ON AWAN CASE SO FAR:

    The Post described the amount of data improperly flowing out of the congressional network as “massive.” One congressional source told Circa it was “terabits.”

    A terabyte is a million megabytes; a terabit is about one-tenth of that.
    Awan’s three children are in elementary school or younger. A book report in Word document format could clock in at under a megabyte, even if it were 100 pages long. To fill a terabyte with family photos, a person would need 250,000 photos.

    Rules aside, there would be little reason for a staffer to upload his children’s homework and family photos to a congressman’s server. For one, cloud services such as Google Drive and Google Photos readily provide that functionality, with a web interface. The congressional computer was a server with no monitor, so you couldn’t view the photos on it, and they had to have been uploaded onto it by another computer. It makes little sense that Awan would upload personal data from a home computer onto a House server only to re-download it.

    Awan’s wife, Hina Alvi, was the sole person that was supposed to be authorizing the Caucus server, and she could have uploaded pictures of her children without attracting attention.

    Yet she accessed it only 300 times as part of her job, while other people — including Awan’s two brothers and his friend Rao Abbas — accessed it 5,400 times. It’s unclear why extended family and friends would be uploading Awan’s kids’ homework and pictures more than their own mother would.

    The Post did not note the “massive” outgoing data and unauthorized access until the 40th and 42nd paragraphs of its story, after it had quoted multiple defense attorneys and ventured into a lengthy and seemingly irrelevant but humanizing backstory on Awan’s childhood.

    Its print headline was “Evidence Far Exceeds Intrigue” in the probe, yet it quoted only a congressional staffer who, TheDCNF’s congressional source said, would not have been able to make assurances that there was nothing to the criminal investigation, because Congress has been fire walled from the criminal probe since it was turned over.

    The Post also did not specify that data was also being backed up online via unofficial Dropbox accounts. Wasserman Schultz has acknowledged that the accounts were used for congressional data, and that she has used the service in violation of House rules “for years.”

    The server was under the auspices of Xavier Becerra, who left Congress Jan. 24 to become California attorney general and asked for the server to be wiped at that time. Police first asked for a copy and received what they identified as an elaborately falsified image, leading police to ban them from the network immediately because they viewed it as an attempt to tamper with a criminal investigation and an indication of clear criminal intent, TheDCNF reported before the Post story ran. The Awans were banned from the House network Feb. 2.

    The Post reported:

    By midsummer [2016], with the approval of the House Administration Committee, the Inspector General’s Office was tracking the five employees’ logins. In October, they found “massive” amounts of data flowing from the networks they were accessing, raising the possibility that an automated program was vacuuming up information, according to a senior House official familiar with the probe. Initially, investigators could not see precisely what kind of data was moving off the server due to legal protections afforded by the Constitution’s “speech and debate” clause, which shields lawmakers’ deliberations from investigators’ eyes. Investigators found that the five IT employees had logged on at one server for the Democratic Caucus more than 5,700 times over a seven-month period, according to documents reviewed by The Post. Alvi, the only one of the five who was authorized to access that server, accounted for fewer than 300 of those logins, documents show.

    The invocation of “speech and debate” suggests that Democrats barred law enforcement from looking at the apparent data breach. The Post — which has highlighted the importance of cybersecurity and the intolerability of hacks on government — suggested finding any of this odd would be “unfounded conspiracy theories and intrigue.”

    Yet, according to a senior congressional official familiar with the probe, criminal investigators have found no evidence that the IT workers had any connection to a foreign government. Investigators looking for clues about espionage instead found that the workers were using one congressional server as if it were their home computer, storing personal information such as children’s homework and family photos, the official said.

    There are indications that Awan is less than a doting family man, and that he would use his congressional position for ill. Three women have called police on him in the last three years. One is his stepmother, Samina Gilani, who said she was kept “in captivity.” In court documents, she alleged: “Imran Awan threatened that he is very powerful and if I ever call the police [he] will do harm to me and my family members back in Pakistan and one of my cousins here in Baltimore … Imran Awan did admit to me that my phone is tapped and there are devices installed in my house to listen my all conversations … Imran Awan introduces himself as someone from U.S. Congress or someone from federal agencies.”

    A second told police she felt “like a slave,” and a third said she “just wanted to leave.” The latter two were apparently in romantic relationships with Awan, who lived in small apartments in Alexandria, Va. that he paid for while he lived with his wife.

    Awan began selling off many of the multiple houses that his family owns around the time he learned he was subject of the cybersecurity probe, and wired money to Pakistan, resulting in Awan and his wife being indicted for bank fraud.

    The Post confirmed that Democratic IT aides had no experience, such as Rao Abbas, who worked at McDonald’s. But it did not mention that an Iraqi politician tied to Hezbollah sent $100,000 to a company the family set up while working for Congress, and that Awan had a secret account unknown to authorities, 123@mail.house.gov, that was tied to the name of an intelligence specialist working for Rep. Andre Carson of Indiana. The intelligence specialist denies knowing anything about the account.

    IRS Believes Mueller Investigation is Out of Control
    – They Refused to Participate in Manafort Raid

    http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2017/09/wow-irs-believes-mueller-investigation-control-refused-participate-manafort-raid/

    SHUT IT DOWN.

    The Mueller investigation is so out of control that the IRS clashed with the Special Counsel’s team all summer over the broad scope and the Manafort raid according to a new report by CNN.

    The IRS is now sharing information with Mueller’s team about Trump campaign associates. Mueller’s team is looking at everything tax related which includes real estate and banking. The IRS is concerned because Mueller is going back 11 years in his search. ELEVEN YEARS.

    After being at odds for months, the two camps came to an agreement after consultation from officials at the Treasury Department.

    Via CNN:

    Part of the concern centered on the far-reaching and broad requests from Mueller’s team. In the case of Manafort, Mueller’s investigators are reaching back 11 years as they investigate possible tax and financial crimes, according to search warrant documents. Mueller is bound by a written order issued by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein in May which allows the special counsel to investigate “any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation.”

    After several months of being at odds, one source said, the IRS Criminal Investigation division is now sharing information about campaign associates, including Manafort and former White House national security adviser Michael Flynn. The sharing happened after the two camps reached an agreement following consultation with officials at the Treasury Department.

    The IRS did not participate in the Manafort raid over the summer; the raid was carried out only by FBI agents. This is highly unusual since this particular probe centers around financial issues.

    Tension between the IRS and the special counsel played out behind the scenes of the high-profile raid on Manafort’s Alexandria, Virginia, home this summer, according to multiple sources.

    CNN also states that it is unclear whether Mueller has President Trump’s tax returns. If the Special Counsel does have Trump’s tax returns, Deputy AG Rosenstein would have to sign off on it being that it’s a sensitive matter.

    Read the full report here.


    As previously reported, armed FBI agents with guns drawn busted into Paul Manafort’s home as Manafort and his wife lay in bed.

    The FBI agents insisted on searching Kathleen Manafort for weapons — after they barged into her home

    Lawmakers Turn Up the Heat on Obama Unmasking Scandal
    – Allege Larger Obama Spy Op on Trump

    http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2017/09/lawmakers-turn-heat-obama-unmasking-scandal-allege-larger-obama-spy-op-trump/

    Senior Congressional leaders are turning up the heat on their investigation into the Obama unmasking scandal after recent reports of obvious abuses from former UN Ambassador Samantha Power that cannot be ignored.

    The recent admission from Susan Rice that she unmasked Trump’s associates to understand more about a meeting between UAE crown prince Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed al-Nahyan and senior Trump aides that took place late last year also renewed their focus on the former NatSec Advisor.

    The Washington Free Beacon reports:

    Congressional leaders and other insiders told the Washington Free Beacon that the investigation into the Obama administration’s unmasking campaign is gaining greater steam, even as the federal probe into alleged collusion with Russia drags on.

    “The misuse of intelligence information by members of the Obama administration is a serious issue that requires an exhaustive investigation and accountability,”
    Rep. Ron DeSantis (R., Fla.), chair of House Subcommittee on National Security, told the Free Beacon.

    The investigation into these unmasking efforts continues to focus on top Obama officials, particularly Power, who is said to have had little need to unmask such sensitive classified information from her perch at Turtle Bay.

    Rep. Sean Duffy (R. Wis.), another Republican member closely tracking the unmaksing scandal, encouraged his congressional colleagues to move past the Russia probe in pursuit of the facts about Obama’s potentially illicit spy operation on Trump associates.

    The Democrats better be careful what they wish for. Ironically, the Dems have dug a deeper hole for themselves with this Russia investigation as more damning information is uncovered about the Obama admin.

    “Congress is determined to follow the facts wherever they may lead us. And, ironically, the most damning revelations of the Russia investigation thus far incriminates the Obama administration,” said the official, who was not authorized to speak on record. “Susan Rice’s admission to widespread unmasking against Trump associates may just be the tip of the iceberg. We are going to get to the bottom of this.”

    The Free Beacon also reported that former officials are very disturbed by the mind blowing number of people Samantha Power unmasked.

    The hundreds of unmasking requests by Power—which amount to nearly one a day—are extremely suspicious, the former officials said.

    As The Gateway Pundit previously reported, an attorney for Trump Jay Sekulow and his partner at the ACLJ Jordan Sekulow broke down Samantha Power’s unprecedented unmasking requests on their Friday radio show.

    Jordan Sekulow pointed out that Power’s unmasking was crammed in the last few weeks or perhaps days of the Obama administration which means she was unmasking dozens of people OR MORE in a single working day.

    Sekulow puts Power’s unmasking requests into context by comparing it to other UN Ambassadors of the past.

    “Her number of requests are unprecedented in the history of UN Ambassadors who also have the position to unmask,” Jordan Sekulow began.

    “No other UN Ambassador has ever even made half of the requests Power made in their ENTIRE CAREER, let alone a few months.”

    House Intel Committee Postpones Hearing on Trump Dossier
    After FBI Misses THIRD Deadline to Hand Over Subpoenaed Docs

    http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2017/09/house-intel-committee-postpones-hearing-trump-dossier-fbi-misses-third-deadline-hand-subpoenaed-docs/

    The House Intel Committee postponed a hearing on the debunked Russian dossier scheduled for Thursday after the FBI missed their THIRD deadline to hand over subpoenaed documents.

    Via The Hill:

    The House Intelligence Committee has postponed a quietly scheduled open hearing intended to nudge the Department of Justice into complying with a subpoena related to a controversial dossier linking President Trump to Russia.

    Talks are ongoing between the Justice Department and the committee over what information the department will provide and how. Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) is scheduled to meet with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein on Thursday as part of the negotiations,

    Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) blasted the Justice Department and FBI for not complying, “Why is the FBI so focused on keeping Congress in the dark?”

    The Gateway Pundit reported Friday that a third deadline passed for the FBI and Justice Department to hand over subpoenaed documents to the House Intelligence Committee relating to the debunked Russian dossier.

    The big question is, did the FBI actually use this garbage dossier to obtain a FISA warrant like reports suggest?

    CNN reported last Monday that Obama’s FBI indeed wiretapped Trump’s campaign manager, Paul Manafort before, during and after the 2016 presidential election. CNN is even admitting that Trump himself may have been caught up in the surveillance.

    The Obama FBI used a secret court order to wiretap Manafort. We the people deserve to know if the debunked dossier was used to obtain this FISA warrant in order to spy on Trump’s camp.

    The Washington Examiner reports:

    Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes originally set a Sept. 1 deadline for production of the dossier documents. The FBI did not comply. Nunes then extended the deadline to Sept. 14. The FBI did not comply. Then Nunes extended the deadline again, to Sept. 22. Now, again, the FBI has not complied.

    There’s a lot at stake. Nunes is currently traveling in the Middle East, so it is not clear what the next step will be, or when it will happen. But so far, the FBI and the Justice Department do not appear to be in the mood to comply with the subpoena.

    What we do know is that Comey cited this dossier in some of his briefings:

    FBI Director James Comey has cited the dossier in some of his briefings with lawmakers in recent weeks as one of the information sources used by his bureau to bolster its probe, U.S. officials briefed on the investigation told CNN.

    We also know that Fusion GPS, the company that commissioned the dossier is a Democrat oppo research firm. Via Paul Sperry of the New York Post:

    A secretive Washington firm that commissioned the dubious intelligence dossier on Donald Trump is stonewalling congressional investigators trying to learn more about its connections to the Democratic Party.

    Fusion GPS was on the payroll of an unidentified Democratic ally of Clinton when it hired a long-retired British spy to dig up dirt on Trump. In 2012, Democrats hired Fusion GPS to uncover dirt on GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney. And in 2015, Democrat ally Planned Parenthood retained Fusion GPS to investigate pro-life activists protesting the abortion group.

    Here is more background on the now-discredited Trump Dossier.

    With just ten days to go before he was sworn in as America’s forty-fifth president, the political establishment went nuclear on President-elect Donald Trump with a double-barreled blast of “leaked” “intelligence” reports by CNN and BuzzFeed.

    The documents contained explosive, but unverified, opposition research that alleged intel ties between Russia and Trump and also claims Russia holds sexual blackmail material over Trump.

    One of the most outrageous unconfirmed allegations in the report claims the Russians recorded Trump watching Russian prostitutes urinate on each other in a Moscow hotel room previously occupied by President and Mrs. Barack Obama.

    According to the “leaked” “intelligence” documents: Trump disliked Obama so much that he hired two Russian hookers to piss on a bed that Obama slept on in Russia.

    And the liberal media and Secret Service and John McCain believed this nonsense?

    Seriously?
