Congressional Probe into Possible News Leaks by FBI Agents

THE FBI, DOJ, NSA & IRS ALL NEED TO BE PURGED …

As reported by John Soloman at The Hill, Republican-led House and Senate committees are investigating whether the individuals involved in the Russia counterintelligence investigation had contacts with the news media that resulted in improper leaks. That would be illegal leaks. Did FBI counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok and bureau lawyer Lisa Page leak information to the media? UNREAL. The very people who are supposed to enforce the laws of the United States are the ones breaking them. But when its “Get Trump,” all things are allowed. These people and several others in the FBI, DOJ and throw in the IRS need to be tried and sent to prison. When America loses faith in these so-called apolitical entities, its over. As stated at Red State, “All signs point to FBI Text Messages Suggest Senior Agents Were Sources of Trump Dossier Leaks.”

Republican-led House and Senate committees are investigating whether leaders of the Russia counterintelligence investigation had contacts with the news media that resulted in improper leaks, prompted in part by text messages amongst senior FBI officials mentioning specific reporters, news organizations and articles.

In one exchange, FBI counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok and bureau lawyer Lisa Page engaged in a series of texts shortly before Election Day 2016 suggesting they knew in advance about an article in The Wall Street Journal and would need to feign stumbling onto the story so it could be shared with colleagues.

“Article is out, but hidden behind paywall so can’t read it,” Page texted Strzok on Oct. 24, 2016.

“Wsj? Boy that was fast,” Strzok texted back, using the initials of the famed financial newspaper. “Should I ‘find’ it and tell the team?”

The text messages, which were reviewed by The Hill, show the two FBI agents discussed how they might make it appear they innocently discovered the article, such as through Google News alerts.

“I can get it like I do every other article that hits any Google News alerts, seriously,” Strzok wrote, adding he didn’t want his team hearing about the article “from someone else.”

Grand Jury takes Sworn Testimony in Burlington College President Jane Sanders Case (Bernie Sanders Wife)

SO WHO IS IN DEEP LEGAL TROUBLE?

With the bias and liberal MSM focusing negatively on President Donald Trump and the so-called Russian collusion investigation that has amounted to nothing more than a partisan witch hunt, look who actually finds themselves in real legal trouble … why its former Burlington College president Jane Sanders, the wife of U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT). As much as the Sanders family wants to deny the story and the MSM wants to ignore it all together, federal prosecutors had convened a grand jury. When a grand jury is convened, that can only suggest the prosecutors are seeking indictments.

The federal probe into a 2010 land deal orchestrated by former Burlington College president Jane Sanders, wife of U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., has deepened. VTDigger has confirmed that a grand jury has compelled sworn witness testimony in the case.

The Vermont U.S. Attorney’s office has interviewed at least one witness before the grand jury to determine whether indictments should be handed down.

Former Burlington College board member Robin Lloyd says she testified for about an hour on Oct. 26 before a grand jury at the federal courthouse in Burlington.

Paul Van de Graaf, chief of the criminal division for the U.S. attorney’s office in Vermont, questioned Lloyd about her role as the development chair of the college’s board of trustees during a period when Sanders was collecting donations and pledges for the purchase of a $10 million city lakefront property.

Lloyd, who is publisher of the progressive website Toward Freedom, kept copious board meeting minutes as the development chair for the college. In the interview with Van de Graaf, Lloyd said he “was focused on what I knew about who had been approached for contributions.”

“I helped provide a timeline of what happened — and when — in terms of development,” Lloyd said. “It was general questions about donors, and money coming in.”

Jane and Bernie Sanders have vehemently denied any impropriety surrounding the land deal.

Jeff Weaver, a spokesman for the Sanders and former campaign manager, told Seven Days Sunday night, “We have absolutely no reason to believe that there is a grand jury empaneled to examine Burlington College, Jane Sanders, or any aspect of Dr. Sanders’ service as president of Burlington College. As best we can tell, the current news reports are simply recycling an account of a government interview of a witness from several months ago. Nothing new here.”

Lloyd’s appearance is the first public confirmation that the federal government has compelled a grand jury.

A grand jury is typically convened following evidence gathering and investigation by the government. The prosecutor presents an outline of the government’s case to the jury, which may include evidence and live witness testimony. The jury then must determine whether there is probable cause of criminality, and whether an individual should be put on trial. A grand jury is typically comprised of between 16 to 23 members who are selected at random. Witnesses testify under oath. An indictment is only issued if at least 12 jurors are in agreement, according to the Department of Justice.

The FBI Launches New Clinton Foundation Investigation Into Any Pay-to-Play Politics or Other Illegal Activities (VIDEO)

NOW FOR THE REAL INVESTIGATIONS INTO CORRUPTION

The shoe might finally have dropped on the Clintons’.  The Hill is reporting that the Justice Department has launched a new into whether the Clinton Foundation engaged in any pay-to-play politics or other illegal activities while Hillary Clinton served as Secretary of State in the Obama administration. A spokesperson for the Clinton’s has called the investigation a sham. However, as John Solomon writes, for years, “news media from the New York Times to The Daily Caller have reported countless stories on donations to the Clinton Foundation or speech fees that closely fell around the time of favorable decisions by Hillary Clinton’s State Department.” It is obvious from the Hillary Clinton email investigations that the Clinton’s received preferential treatment from the Obama DOJ and FBI in how that was handled. Why wouldn’t we think the same of this? What’s good for the gander should be good for the goose as well. Let’s have an independent prosecutor investigate the Clinton Foundation and her private email server and have it be an unlimited budget, open ended investigation while having all of the investigative team be Trump supporters and anti-Clinton folks. Go for it.

Sean Hannity: 1/4/18 – Hannity Fox News with John Soloman and Sara Carter

The Justice Department has launched a new inquiry into whether the Clinton Foundation engaged in any pay-to-play politics or other illegal activities while Hillary Clinton served as Secretary of State, law enforcement officials and a witness tells The Hill.

FBI agents from Little Rock, Ark., where the Foundation was started, have taken the lead in the investigation and have interviewed at least one witness in the last month, and law enforcement officials said additional activities are expected in coming weeks.

The officials, who spoke only on condition of anonymity, said the probe is examining whether the Clintons promised or performed any policy favors in return for largesse to their charitable efforts or whether donors made commitments of donations in hopes of securing government outcomes.

The probe may also examine whether any tax-exempt assets were converted for personal or political use and whether the Foundation complied with applicable tax laws, the officials said.

One witness recently interviewed by the FBI described the session to The Hill as “extremely professional and unquestionably thorough” and focused on questions about whether donors to Clinton charitable efforts received any favorable treatment from the Obama administration on a policy decision previously highlighted in media reports.

Baltimore, MD Residents Blame 2017 Record-High Murder Rate On Lower Police Presence

DON’T ASK FOR THINGS THEY JUST MIGHT COME TRUE

2017 was yet another record for murders in Baltimore, Maryland.  For the third year in a row Baltimore had more than 300 murders. Many point to the lack of police presence following the riots. But wait, wasn’t it those from Baltimore that were complaining about the police and their actions? Now they want a greater police presence to curtail crime? Sorry Charlie, you can’t have it both ways.

For the third year in a row, Baltimore, Md., has had more than 300 murders, reaching a new record of murders per number of residents in 2017.

Some residents attribute the high murder rate to relaxed police patrols in the city following high-profile cases of police brutality. Officers have backed off in neighborhoods, like the one where Freddie Gray was arrested.

The Rev. Kinji Scott, a pastor in Baltimore who’s held positions in local city government, says the opposite needs to happen.

“We wanted the police there,” Scott says. “We wanted them engaged in the community. We didn’t want them beating the hell out of us, we didn’t want that.”

He’s among activists who are calling for police reform to reduce the violence in Baltimore and several other high-crime cities across the U.S. that he says haven’t seen change. That change begins with a conversation between the communities directly involved, Scott says.

Jailed Perv Anthony Weiner had CLASSIFIED Emails Belonging to Wife Huma Abedin on his Laptop – Which the FBI Seized after he Sexted 15-year-old girl

5 CLASSIFIED EMAILS FOUND ON WEINER’S LAPTOP!!!

As reported at the Daily Mail,  of the 2,800 of Huma Abedin’s work-related emails and documents that the FBI found on disgraced husband Anthony Weiner’s computer, 5 were deemed to be classified!!!  The FBI found five classified emails about delicate talks with Middle East leaders including some from Israel, Hamas, Saudi Arabia and the Palestinian Authority. How were all off these individuals not prosecuted for this? Favoritism and a double standard from James Comey’s bias FBI of course. And who was at the center of these classified emails, Hillary Clinton of course. Which can further explain the lack of prosecutions and investigations from Comey’s FBI. Now, where is the Attorney General? These are the crimes that need to be prosecuted, one that involve putting our national security at risk, not a bias, political witch hunt like the Mueller investigation.

Paging Attorney General Sessions, where are you?

Weiner 5 classifed docs

Twitter – Judicial Watch

At least five emails determined to be classified were found among 2,800 documents stored on a laptop belonging to Anthony Weiner, whose then-wife Huma Abedin was deputy chief of staff to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

The State Department released hundreds of pages of materials Friday afternoon, including a total of eight pages classified at the ‘confidential level,’ the third most sensitive level the U.S. government uses.

The emails date from 2010, 2011 and 2012 and concern discussions with Middle East leaders including some from Israel, the United Arab Emirates, Hamas and the Palestinian Authority.

Large portions, including entire pages, were redacted before the documents’ release.

Three of them were sent either to or from an address called ‘BBB Backup,’ which one email identifies as a backup of a Blackberry Bold 9700, presumably belonging to Abedin.

One page of a document released Friday is heavily redacted and marked ‘classified’; it mentions ‘update on Hamas-PA talks,’ referring to the Palestinian Authority.

Another is a four-page ‘call sheet’ meant to guide Clinton through a sensitive phone call with Benjamin Netanyahu.

A third is a detailed rundown of issues Clinton was expecting to address during a call with Saud bin Faisal bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, who served as Saudi Arabia’s foreign minister until 2015.
