Sean Hannity 10/18/17: Politicization by Democrat Congresswoman of an American Soldier, Senate Probe into Obama Era Russian Bribery Case (VIDEO)
THERE IS A RUSSIAN COLLUSION CASE, BUT IT WAS DURING THE OBAMA PRESIDENCY …
It is about time the government has investigated the real collusion, corruption and kickback with the Russians and Putin that took place between former president Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton with regards to the Uranium One deal. The real corruption with Russia happened during Obama, not Trump folks. The Hill has broke this story wide open.
From THE HILL: FBI uncovered Russian bribery plot before Obama administration approved controversial nuclear deal with Moscow
Before the Obama administration approved a controversial deal in 2010 giving Moscow control of a large swath of American uranium, the FBI had gathered substantial evidence that Russian nuclear industry officials were engaged in bribery, kickbacks, extortion and money laundering designed to grow Vladimir Putin’s atomic energy business inside the United States, according to government documents and interviews.
Federal agents used a confidential U.S. witness working inside the Russian nuclear industry to gather extensive financial records, make secret recordings and intercept emails as early as 2009 that showed Moscow had compromised an American uranium trucking firm with bribes and kickbacks in violation of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, FBI and court documents show.
They also obtained an eyewitness account — backed by documents — indicating Russian nuclear officials had routed millions of dollars to the U.S. designed to benefit former President Bill Clinton’s charitable foundation during the time Secretary of State Hillary Clinton served on a government body that provided a favorable decision to Moscow, sources told The Hill.
The racketeering scheme was conducted “with the consent of higher level officials” in Russia who “shared the proceeds” from the kickbacks, one agent declared in an affidavit years later.
UPDATE I: FBI informant blocked from telling Congress about Russia nuclear corruption case.
An American businessman who worked for years undercover as an FBI confidential witness was blocked by the Obama Justice Department from telling Congress about conversations and transactions he witnessed related to the Russian nuclear industry’s efforts to win favor with Bill and Hillary Clinton and influence Obama administration decisions, his lawyer tells The Hill.
Attorney Victoria Toensing, a former Reagan Justice Department official and former chief counsel of the Senate Intelligence Committee, said Tuesday she is working with members of Congress to see if they can get the Trump Justice Department or the FBI to free her client to talk to lawmakers.
“All of the information about this corruption has not come out,” she said in an interview Tuesday. “And so my client, the same part of my client that made him go into the FBI in the first place, says, ‘This is wrong. What should I do about it?’”
Toensing said she also possesses memos that recount how the Justice Department last year threatened her client when he attempted to file a lawsuit that could have drawn attention to the Russian corruption during the 2016 presidential race as well as helped him recover some of the money Russians stole from him through kickbacks during the FBI probe.
The undercover client witnessed “a lot of bribery going on around the U.S.” but was asked by the FBI to sign a nondisclosure agreement (NDA) that prevents him from revealing what he knows to Congress, Toensing explained.
It Looks Like Obama Did Spy on Donald Trump … Just as Trump Said They Did, But Just How Much Did Obama Weaponize the Intel Agencies Against His Enemies?
IT WOULD APPEAR THAT DONALD TRUMP WAS CORRECT, TRUMP WAS WIRE-TAPPED …
Award winning reporter Sharyl Attkisson is not surprised by news seemingly confirming President Trump’s allegation that the Obama administration spied on him and his campaign staff. Why, because that’s exactly what Obama did to her. And so the plot thickens. Remember when Donald Trump claimed that the Obama administration “wire tapped” hum? Remember when the Democrat liberal lap dog media came to the defense of Obama and tried to discount the stories of the so called spying on Trump Towers? Well, it now appears that Barack Obama did spy on Donald Trump. After so many media outlets bashing Trump for his accusations of being wire tapped, now the MSM is reporting the FBI did indeed “wiretap” the former head of Trump’s campaign, Paul Manafort, both before and after Trump was elected. That would also mean, if Trump officials, or Donald Trump himself communicated with Manafort during the wiretaps, they would have been recorded, too. Imagine that? This is what happens when you have a MSM in bed with a political party who at all cost looks to conceal the truth and allows of regime to go rogue and flaunt the U.S. Constitution at ever turn, just because they like and agree with a liberal president’s agenda.
Hannity: Trump has been proven right about wiretapping
Many in the media are diving deeply into minutiae in order to discredit any notion that President Trump might have been onto something in March when he fired off a series of tweets claiming President Obama had “tapped” “wires” in Trump Tower just before the election.
According to media reports this week, the FBI did indeed “wiretap” the former head of Trump’s campaign, Paul Manafort, both before and after Trump was elected. If Trump officials — or Trump himself — communicated with Manafort during the wiretaps, they would have been recorded, too.
But we’re missing the bigger story.
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.
But just how much did Obama weaponize the Intel agencies against his enemies? Move over Richard Nixon, we have a true corrupt president and his name is Barrack Hussein “Millhous” Obama. Does anyone care that a president used Intel agencies to go after his enemies? The Soviet Union and East Germany would be so proud of your actions. Who sees the irony with the LEFT and their endless witch hunt of Trump and the connection with Russian hacking of the 2016 elections, when it was in fact the Obama administration who hacked and spied of U.S. citizens. Sorry, but after the Obama administration weaponized the IRS to attack Conservative Tea Party groups following the 2010 midterm elections, they get no pass or benefit of the doubt on this.
It’s difficult not to see patterns in the government’s behavior, unless you’re wearing blinders.
- The intelligence community secretly expanded its authority in 2011 so it can monitor innocent U.S. citizens like you and me for doing nothing more than mentioning a target’s name a single time.
- In January 2016, a top secret inspector general report found the NSA violated the very laws designed to prevent abuse.
- In 2016, Obama officials searched through intelligence on U.S. citizens a record 30,000 times, up from 9,500 in 2013.
- Two weeks before the election, at a secret hearing before the FISA court overseeing government surveillance, NSA officials confessed they’d violated privacy safeguards “with much greater frequency” than they’d admitted. The judge accused them of “institutional lack of candor” and said, “this is a very serious Fourth Amendment issue.”

ONCE AGAIN WE ARE WITNESS TO THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION DOING NOTHING AGAINST A FOREIGN THREAT …
As reported at The Politico, in 2014, the Barack Obama administration got a report of Russia’s intention to disrupt Western democracies, including the United States. So why would the Obama administration act so surprised when Russians did try to disrupt the elections? They knew all along and did nothing. Yet, you will hear from the Obama sycophants and apologists that they did. Hmm, how did that work out? They didn’t seem to want to make waves because Hillary Clinton was going to win. Then, Trump stuns her in the 2016 presidential election and all of the Russian conspiracy and collusion is pointed at him. Yet it was under Obama, that nothing was done to prevent such interference. Where was the transparency in all this? It was just another example of failure during the eight years of Barack Obama.
The Obama administration received multiple warnings from national security officials between 2014 and 2016 that the Kremlin was ramping up its intelligence operations and building disinformation networks it could use to disrupt the U.S. political system, according to more than half a dozen current and former officials.
As early as 2014, the administration received a report that quoted a well-connected Russian source as saying that the Kremlin was building a disinformation arm that could be used to interfere in Western democracies. The report, according to an official familiar with it, included a quote from the Russian source telling U.S. officials in Moscow, “You have no idea how extensive these networks are in Europe … and in the U.S., Russia has penetrated media organizations, lobbying firms, political parties, governments and militaries in all of these places.”
That report was circulated among the National Security Council, intelligence agencies, and the State Department via secure email and cable in the spring of 2014 as part of a larger assessment of Russian intentions in Ukraine, the official said.
There was no explicit warning of a threat to U.S. elections, but the official said some diplomats and national-security officials in Moscow felt the administration was too quick to dismiss the possibility that the Kremlin incursions could reach the United States.
Ned Price, a former spokesperson for the National Security Council, rejected the idea that the administration failed to heed warnings about Russian interference in the U.S. political system or Russian cyberespionage in general.
“The Obama administration was nothing but proactive in responding to Russian aggression in all of its forms, especially as Moscow became more brazen with and following its military moves against Ukraine beginning in 2014,” Price said, citing sanctions and increased American support to NATO as evidence of the former administration’s seriousness.
But subsequent events — including Russia’s interference in the American election through hacks of the emails of the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta, among other intrusions identified by U.S. intelligence — have left many in the former administration wondering if they could have done more.
“People have criticized us … for not coming out more forcefully and saying it,” former CIA Director John Brennan said at the Aspen National Forum in July. “There was no playbook for this.”
It all goes back to President Obama’s meeting with outgoing Russian President Medevev when he was caught on an open mike stating of his ability to deal with relations between the U.S. and Russia, saying he would have more flexibility after the election. Who was colluding with Russia?
After Leaving the Democrat Party in Shambles … Barack Obama to Reemerge in ‘Delicate Dance’ with Dems
THE NARCISSIST JUST CANT GO AWAY INTO THAT GOOD NIGHT…
As reported at The Hill, former President Barack Obama will reemerge on the national scene this fall. However, Democrats expect him to do so with caution and under the radar. REALLY? The Democrat party is without a leader and has no face and they think Obama is going to come back into the light and not suck up all of the oxygen? REALLY? During the eight years of Obama, Democrats lost the House, the Senate, Governorships and thousands of State legislatures. The only one who made out during the reign of Obama was Obama. Now, the former Narcissist in Chief is set to return because he just can’t go about his life like normal presidents before him. This is what a community agitator does. Sorry Dems, this is not a good thing. Democrats need to move on and find the new face and future of the party. Sadly, they are stuck in the past with no bench because their leaders have refused to let this happen.
Do Democrats really want to bring back Obama and bring to light all of his failures with the economy, jobs and foreign policy?
He has not yet done dividing America
Former President Obama will reemerge on the national scene this fall, though Democrats expect him to do so with caution.
One aide describes the beginning of a “delicate dance” that aims to put Obama in the Democratic fray, but prevent him from remaining the face of the party.
Aides will huddle with Obama in the coming weeks to plot out what shape the former president’s fall schedule will take. Advisers close to him say that while he will play an active role in helping his party rebuild, much of his work will be behind the scenes.
He is likely to take on fundraising, for example, something he has done for the Democratic National Committee and the National Democratic Redistricting Committee since leaving office.
In recent months, Obama has played a larger behind the scenes role than was publicly known.
August 4th in Illinois will now be known as “Barack Obama Day.” Imagine that. Just as Barack Obama was provided a Nobel Peace Prize having accomplished nothing to deserve it, the Obamamessiah is now being given his own state holiday in Illinois. It was stated that the “day set apart to honor the 44th President of the United States of America who began his career serving the People of Illinois in both the Illinois State Senate and the United States Senate, and dedicated his life to protecting the rights of Americans and building bridges across communities.”Seriously? What exactly did he do for the American people, Obamacare? As Red State opines, Barack Obama Day will be like “Festivus.” Has there ever been a president who has done less, who has had for fan fare than Obama?
And his signature piece of legislation, Obamacare, was nothing more than an intentional lie and failure. Obama escalated the National debt to unsustainable limits. He left the Middle East a powder keg, as Syria and Libya fell into disarray. Let us not forget the Iranian nuclear deal. A day of celebration? What’s next, a National holiday, Mount Rushmore?
Former President Barack Obama got a special treat for his birthday this year – his very own holiday.
Governor Bruce Rauner signed into law Friday a measure to designate Aug. 4 as “Barack Obama Day” across Illinois.
The newest state holiday will be celebrated each year on the 44th president’s birthday, beginning in 2018.
The holiday will be “observed throughout the State as a day set apart to honor the 44th President of the United States of America who began his career serving the People of Illinois in both the Illinois State Senate and the United States Senate, and dedicated his life to protecting the rights of Americans and building bridges across communities,” Senate Bill 55 reads.
While several lawmakers abstained from voting on the measure, it passed both houses earlier this year without a single vote against.
Honestly, what did Barack Obama do for Illinois? Other than being the first black president, where instead of bringing America together like a Nelson Mandella, he decided to fragment it even further. Don’t ask the people of Chicago about the accomplishments of Obama. Chicago was ignored by Obama and became a “killing field” during the 8 years of Barack. Nearly 4,000 people have been murdered in President Barack Obama’s adopted city during his presidency.
To some Chicago community organizers and activists — the very role in which Obama sowed his own political seeds — the president’s track record is more mixed.
They laud the president and First Lady Michelle Obama for setting an example as role models for young African-Americans, but lament that Obama didn’t do more to tip the scales of inequality they see in city schools that lack proper resources and in Chicago neighborhoods void of economic opportunity.
“I think Barack Obama has ignored the black community for eight years, and now he’s coming to take a bow in Chicago while our neighborhoods are suffering from disinvestment and soaring unemployment,” said Ja’Mal Green, who rose to Chicago prominence among a group of young activists who decried police misconduct following the release of the Laquan McDonald police shooting video.
“We are seeing young black men getting gunned down at a horrific rate,” Green said, “and he has shown no willingness to seriously address these issues.”
