House Intel Votes to Release 4 Page Surveillance Memo to the Public … GOP Lawmakers Have Called It “Shocking,” “Troubling” and “Alarming”
#RELEASE THE MEMO, the memo has been released by House Intelligence Committee …
The 4 page memo that summarizes the FBI and DOJ’s abuses relating to the Steele dossier, the Obama administration’s FISA applications, and improper spying on the Trump campaign by the Obama administration has been released by the House Intelligence Committee. The memo alleges the FBI/DOJ/Obama administration abusedFISA law to obtain warrants. Republicans have called the contents of the memo as “shocking,” “troubling” and “alarming.” As stated at Powerline, “You can also judge the memo’s contents from the remarks of arch-Democrat Adam Schiff: ‘Today this committee voted to put the president’s personal interests, perhaps their own political interests, above the
Democratic Party’s national interests,’ the Democrat said.” So why doesn’t the Democrats, the LEFT and the liberal MSM want the contents of the memo open to the public? The lack of transparency on the part of the LEFT is telling and will be remembered come election time. Just how damning is it? The public will see soon and be able to make their own call. The truth needs to come out on this.
The House Intelligence Committee on Monday evening voted to release a classified memo circulating in Congress that purportedly reveals government surveillance abuses.
The vote was announced to reporters by California Rep. Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the committee, who called it a “very sad day, I think, in the history of this committee.” The motion passed on a party-line basis, he said.
President Trump now has five days to decide whether he has any objections before the memo can be publicly released.
Last week, a top Justice Department official urged House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes not to release the memo, saying it would be “extraordinarily reckless” and could harm national security and ongoing investigations.
The four-page memo has being described by GOP lawmakers as “shocking,” “troubling” and “alarming,” with one congressman likening the details to KGB activity in Russia.
The memo will not be immediately released, but could be at any time this week or next. Following the release of the memo, the document goes to President Trump, who has up to five days to review and reject or approve its publication. Look for this bombshell to hit on Friday just in time for the Sunday shows to discuss … TIC, TOC!!!
IT DOESN’T MATTER HOW THESE MEMOS WERE LOST, THEY NEED TO BE RECOVERED …
From Sean Hannity’s show last night from 1/24/18, Hannity’s guests further expose the “Deep State” that operates against the will of the American people. These individuals thought they would never be caught and all of these crimes would go unknown. The House will release the 4 page intel memo and will not be bullied by the DOJ who told Congress not to release it. Some one might want to remind the DOJ that it is the Peopl’s elected Congress who has over-sight over them.
Fox News’ Sean Hannity said Wednesday night on “Hannity” that the Justice Department has started recovering some of the missing texts between FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, citing DOJ sources.
Federal law enforcement officials had notified congressional committees that a technical glitch affected thousands of FBI cellphones between Dec. 14, 2016 and May 17, 2017. This meant that 5 months’ worth of texts would be missing from Strzok and Page, both of whom are under scrutiny after it was revealed that the former members of special counsel Robert Mueller’s team exchanged anti-Trump texts during the 2016 presidential campaign.
Hannity said sources at the DOJ told him they have begun to recover some of the texts from that time period. Specific content from those texts has not been released.
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.
Paul Manafort and Former Business Associate Rick Gates Told To Surrender to FBI … Manafort Under Investigation of Federal Tax Law & Money Laundering
SPECIAL COUNSEL MUELLER HAS HIS FIRST SCALP …
As reported at the New York Times, Paul Manafort has surrendered himself to the FBI. Manafort and his former business associate Rick Gates are the first to be charged by special counsel Mueller. The news was illegally leaked Friday that a federal grand jury had approved the first charges in the wide-ranging Russia investigation led by Special Counsel Robert Mueller by CNN.
Manafort had been under investigation for violations of federal tax law, money laundering and whether he appropriately disclosed his foreign lobbying. But what does this have to do with any form of collusion that may or may not have taken place during the presidential campaign? The Manafort charges does not come as a surprise after the FBI raided his home this past summer. The indictment is expected to be unsealed later on Monday.
Paul Manafort surrendered to federal authorities Monday morning, after a person close to the case said the first charges were filed in a special counsel investigation.
The charges against Mr. Manafort, President Trump’s former campaign chairman, were not immediately clear but represent a significant escalation in a special counsel investigation that has cast a shadow over the president’s first year in office. Also charged was Mr. Manafort’s former business associate Rick Gates, who was also told to surrender on Monday, the person said.
Mr. Manafort walked into the F.B.I.’s field office in Washington at about 8:15 a.m. with his lawyer.
Mr. Gates is a longtime protégé and junior partner of Mr. Manafort. His name appears on documents linked to companies that Mr. Manafort’s firm set up in Cyprus to receive payments from politicians and businesspeople in Eastern Europe, records reviewed by The New York Times show.
Mr. Manafort had been under investigation for violations of federal tax law, money laundering and whether he appropriately disclosed his foreign lobbying.
UPDATE I: ABC News reports … Paul Manafort, Rick Gates indicted by federal grand jury on 12 charges, including conspiracy against the US.
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.”
