That is not a word to be used lightly but it is one certain intelligence officials, off the record, are alleged to have designated to the Uranium One deal that sent tens of millions of dollars into the coffers of the Clinton Foundation and might have also played a significant role in the multi-million dollar deals granted the Obamas after they left the White House.
FBI Refuses To Release Three-Dozen Secret Memos Involving Clintons, Russia And Obama
The FBI has refused to declassify 37 pages of materials related to the Uranium One deal, citing national security and the privacy issues, reports The Hill’s John Solomon. The documents are thought to contain information regarding then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s involvement, as well as the Obama administration’s knowledge of the controversial deal.
The existence of the documents became known after a recent Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) release of related material contained an entry entitled “Uranium One Transaction.” The publicly available portion includes benign material, such as public letters from members of Congress who demanded information on the Uranium One approval.
Perhaps the FBI’s unexpected “release” — and I use that word loosely since they gave up no public information of importance — in the FOIA vault was a warning flare designed to remind America there might be evidence worth looking at.
One former U.S. official, who had access to the evidence shared with CFIUS during the Uranium One deal, said this to me: “There is definitely material that would be illuminating to the issues that have been raised. Somebody should fight to make it public.”
That somebody could be President Trump, who could add these 37 pages of now-secret documents to his declassification order he is considering in the Russia case.
…What did Obama know?
As Solomon notes, a giant question remains that may be solved by the release of the 37-pages of classified information; what did the Obama administration know about this?
Did the FBI notify then-President Obama, Hillary Clinton and other leaders on the CFIUS board about Rosatom’s dark deeds before the Uranium One sale was approved, or did the bureau drop the ball and fail to alert policymakers?
Neither outcome is particularly comforting. Either the United States, eyes wide open, approved giving uranium assets to a corrupt Russia, or the FBI failed to give the evidence of criminality to the policymakers before such a momentous decision. -The Hill
Campbell says that his FBI handlers assured him that Obama had been briefed by then-FBI Director Mueller on Rosatom’s criminal activities as part of the president’s daily briefing, however, “politics” was the reason that the sale was approved anyway.
His name is/was Joseph Mifsud, a London-based professor who helped to initiate the fake Trump/Russia collusion hoax via alleged contacts with high-ranking Russian officials, British Intelligence, the Clinton campaign, George Soros, and the Deep State apparatus within the United States.
As of this week, the DNC is publicly stating Mr. Mifsud is presumed dead.
The Democratic National Committee (DNC) on Friday raised the prospect that the London-based professor who told former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos that Russia had “dirt” on Hillary Clinton may be dead.
DNC lawyers wrote in court filings Friday that Joseph Mifsud, who spoke to Papadopoulos during the 2016 presidential election, “is missing and may be deceased,” Bloomberg News reported. The lawyers did not elaborate.
The DNC stood by its claim in a statement to The Hill on Friday. The committee indicated that an investigator had been used to find Mifsud, who has been missing for months, and was told the Maltese professor may be dead.
“The DNC’s counsel has attempted to serve Mifsud for months and has been unable to locate or contact him. In addition, public reports have said he has disappeared and hasn’t been seen for months,” DNC spokeswoman Adrienne Watson said.
Mifsud was reportedly teaching at a private university in Rome before he vanished late last year, shortly after his name emerged as a key figure in the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.
The professor had reportedly not been in contact with prosecutors in Italy seeking to question him over allegations of financial wrongdoing and his fiancee told Business Insider earlier this year that she could not reach him.
What the above report neglects to outline is Mr. Mifsud’s link to the Clintons and his arms-length advocacy of the 2016 Hillary Clinton campaign via his ties to Italian Senator Gianni Pittella. (Remember, Mifsud was residing in Italy when he suddenly disappeared.) Pittella had this to say about the 2016 Election and the need to do whatever necessary to make sure Hillary Clinton defeated Donald Trump:
“I have taken the unprecedented step of endorsing and campaigning for Hillary Clinton because the risk of Donald Trump is too high,” Pittella told TIME. “I believe it is in the interest of the European Union and Italy to have Hillary Clinton in office. A Trump victory could be a disaster for the relationship between the U.S.A. and Italy.”
Pittella continued, stating:
“This campaign is special…This campaign is not between Democrat or Republican. It’s between democracy and no democracy in the U.S. It’s between having a relationship between the U.S. and the E.U. and the U.S. and other countries, or not. And Italian citizens, together with the world, have the duty not only to intervene but to act, to support Hillary’s campaign.” (source )
And guess who else Pittella is said to have close ties to? None other than Mr. George Soros. The DNC is attempting to shrug and declare, “Oh, gee, we really wanted to talk with Professor Mifsud but I guess he’s dead. Oh well.”
Whispers suggest Mifsud might have been willing to cooperate with Trump-friendly intelligence operatives and for that he was promptly silenced by any number of powers who wanted to see him gone and then made an example of.
FACT: During Hillary Clinton’s tenure as Secretary of State a dramatic spike in U.S. agent captures/deaths took place in China.
FACT: To date, U.S. intelligence agencies have refused to do a damage assessment of Hillary Clinton’s hacked email server – hacks which many are convinced were carried out by the same Chinese government that then used that information to identify and eliminate deeply embedded U.S. agents in China.
FACT: The above scenario appears to confirm that Mrs. Clinton, the Obama White House, and the Obama-era Deep State, have a lot of blood on their hands.
Fitton: ‘Deep State’ Doesn’t Want to Conduct Damage Assessment of Hillary’s Private Server
Following a bombshell report that a Chinese state-owned company hacked former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private email server, Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said the “deep state” is unwilling to conduct a full damage assessment on how and whether Clinton’s mishandling of classified information damaged national security.
The Daily Caller first reported that the FBI was notified of the purported hack in 2015, when the Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG) warned the Bureau of the intrusion.
He noted that The Daily Caller reported that officials with the ICIG met repeatedly with FBI officials to warn them of the Chinese intrusion. Among those FBI officials was Peter Strzok, who was then the bureau’s top counterintelligence official.
“Did this meeting take place as alleged?” Fitton said. “Was there a discussion about [Clinton’s server being compromised] by a Chinese front company? Did it happen? Did they look into it? Did they follow up on it?”
He said the FBI is not forthcoming with answers to those questions, and he believes it’s because the answers would be embarrassing for the bureau.
An extremely confident Rudy Giuliani stopped by the Sean Hannity Show yesterday to outline the reasons why he feels the entirety of the Mueller investigation isn’t going to just fizzle out but rather, “blow up” in Mueller’s, Rosenstein’s, Hillary’s and Obama’s collective faces and be a Deep State scandal of such shocking proportions that widespread governmental reforms will be initiated. If Mr. Guliani is correct, it gives further motivation for Democrats to try and overtake the House from Republicans during the November 2018 Midterm Elections. If they succeed, whatever truths the Obama-Clinton-Deep State machines have so far successfully hidden from the public will likely remain so with Democrats gaining more power in Congress.
If you read anything this week, this is it. The dots are connected and the motivation for a massive federal government coverup made clear. Even for those who’ve been paying attention, it’s gonna blow your mind.
READ. SHARE. EDUCATE.
H/T: Common Sense Evaluation:
Guess who was transferred into the Internal Revenue Service to run the Tax Exemption Branch of the IRS? Lois Lerner.
Now, that’s interesting, isn’t it?
It gets better, well not really, but this is all just a series of strange coincidences, right?
Guess who ran the Tax Division inside the Department of Injustice from 2001 to 2005?
None other than the Assistant Attorney General of the United States, Rod Rosenstein.
Now, that’s interesting, isn’t it?
Guess who was the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation during this time frame?
I know, it’s a miracle, just a coincidence, just an anomaly in statistics and chances, Robert Mueller.
What do all four casting characters have in common?
They all were briefed and/or were front-line investigators into the Clinton Foundation Investigation.
Now that’s just a coincidence, right?
Ok, let’s chalk the last one up to mere chance.
Let’s fast forward to 2009.
James Comey leaves the Justice Department to go and cash-in at Lockheed Martin.
Hillary Clinton is running the State Department, on her own personal email server by the way.
The Uranium One “issue” comes to the attention of the Hillary.
Like all good public servants do, you know looking out for America’s best interest, she decides to support the decision and approve the sale of 20% of US Uranium to none other than, the Russians.
Now you would think that this is a fairly straight up deal, except it wasn. The American people got absolutely nothing out of it.
However, prior to the sales approval, none other than Bill Clinton goes to Moscow, gets paid $500k for a one-hour speech then meets with Vladimir Putin at his home for a few hours.
OK, no big deal, right?
Well, not so fast, the FBI had a mole inside the money laundering and bribery scheme.
Guess who was the FBI Director during this timeframe?
Yep, Robert Mueller.
He even delivered a Uranium Sample to Moscow in 2009.
Guess who was handling that case within the Justice Department out of the US Attorney’s Office in Maryland.
None other than, yup, Rod Rosenstein.
Guess what happened to the informant?
The Department of Justice placed a GAG order on him and threatened to lock him up if he spoke out about it.
How does 20% of the most strategic asset of the United States of America end up in Russian hands when the FBI has an informant, a mole providing inside information to the FBI on the criminal enterprise?
Guess what happened soon after the sale was approved? 145 million dollars in “donations” made their way into the Clinton Foundation from entities directly connected to the Uranium One deal.
Guess who was still at the Internal Revenue Service working the Charitable Division?
None other than, you got it. Lois Lerner.
OK, that’s all just another series of coincidences, nothing to see here, right?
Let’s fast forward to 2015.
Due to a series of tragic events in Benghazi and after the 9 “investigations” the House, Senate and at State Department, Trey Gowdy who was running the 10th investigation as Chairman of the Select Committee on Benghazi, discovers that the Hillary ran the State Department on an unclassified, unauthorized, outlaw personal email server.
He also discovered that none of those emails had been turned over when she departed her “Public Service” as Secretary of State which was required by law.
He also discovered that there was Top Secret information contained within her personally archived email.
Sparing you the State Departments cover-up, the nostrums they floated, the delay tactics that were employed and the outright lies that were spewed forth from the necks of the Kerry State Department, we shall leave it with this… they did everything humanly possible to cover for Hillary.
Now, this is amazing. Guess who became FBI Director in 2013? Guess who secured 17 no-bid contracts for his employer (Lockheed Martin) with the State Department and was rewarded with a six-million-dollar thank you present when he departed his employer.
None other than our pal, James Comey.
Amazing how all those no-bids just went right through at State, huh?
Now he, of course, is the FBI Director in charge of the “Clinton Email Investigation” (after, of course, his FBI Investigates the Lois Lerner “Matter” at the Internal Revenue Service and, of course, exonerates her).
Nope couldn’t find any crimes there.
Can you guess what happened next?
In April 2016, James Comey drafts an exoneration letter of Hillary Rodham Clinton, meanwhile the DOJ is handing out immunity deals like candy.
They didn’t even convene a Grand Jury.
Like a lightning bolt of statistical impossibility, like a miracle from God himself, like the true “Gangsta” Homey is, James steps out into the cameras of an awaiting press conference on July the 8th of 2016 and exonerates the Hillary from any wrongdoing.
Can you see the pattern? It goes on and on, Rosenstein becomes Asst. Attorney General, Comey gets fired based upon a letter by Rosenstein, Comey leaks government information to the press, Mueller is assigned to the Russian Investigation sham by Rosenstein to provide cover for decades of malfeasance within the FBI and DOJ and the story continues.
FISA abuse, political espionage…. pick a crime, any crime, chances are…… this group and a few others were deeply involved in it.
All the same players.
All compromised and conflicted.
All working fervently to NOT go to jail themselves.
All connected in one way or another to the Clintons.
They are like battery acid. They corrode and corrupt everything they touch.
How many lives have these two destroyed?
As of this writing, the Clinton Foundation, in its 20+ years of operation of being the largest International Charity Fraud in the history of mankind, has never been audited by the Internal Revenue Service.
Let us not forget that Comey’s brother works for DLA Piper, the law firm that does the Clinton Foundation’s taxes.
Taped conversations between Donald Trump and his then-attorney Michael Cohen were among items seized by the federal government during a no-knock search of Mr. Cohen’s office and properties. This evidence is now being leaked to the Establishment Media by operatives within the federal government and likely approved by Robert Mueller himself. So says a longtime D.C. staffer who also believes the Feds knew of those taped conversations months earlier via an illegal surveillance operation against the Trump 2016 campaign – an operation set up by the Obama administration with the implied full knowledge and approval of the Clinton Machine.
“What’s coming out today are leftovers from an operation most likely personally directed by Peter Strzok and his FISA scheme that was given the nod by the Obama White House. (High Rog. Yeah, I see you.) They knew about the tapes way back when because they were listening in on Donald Trump’s private conversations with his attorney. The justification for that shocking intrusion of privacy was the fake Russia sh*t. It’s total abuse of power by the Obama government, Mueller, etc. The next level would be to put a gun to the head of the one they perceive to be the biggest threat to their plans and pull the trigger. And you know what? They’ve had that conversation. Anyone who doesn’t think so is living in a world that doesn’t exist. They’ve done the sex scandal before. Didn’t work. They moved to gun control. Didn’t work. Ramped up the Russian collusion nonsense. Didn’t work. Manufactured a border crisis. No go. Went crazy with the Trump Putin crap and then did some internals and saw that wasn’t playing either. So, here we are back to the sex scandal garbage. Trump had an affair twelve years ago. The woman describes it as loving and consensual. Trump had his lawyer try to make sure the story isn’t used by his political enemies right before the election. Oooh. Wow. What a scandal! Give me a break. The American people don’t give a sh*t about this stuff. They really don’t.
“They better be careful because this info leak/drop points right back to the illegal surveillance thing. They have to know that but they’re getting more and more desperate as the 2018 Midterms approach and Trump’s SC nomination goes live. Here’s the real deal and plenty in this town know it. The Obama government was as abusive and dangerous as anything in our lifetimes – super aggressive political cancer with almost no treatment options outside of total revolution. Fact. And that government, a whole slew of those people involved, are still in the government and/or enjoying a big fat media contributor contract. Anyone who wants to dismiss that statement as crazy conspiracy stuff only have to read Strzok’s own words. How much more proof does anyone need? The guy is a complete loon who was openly calling for the overthrow of a president. Again, TRUTH. And he was the one who headed up both the Hillary illegal server investigation and the Trump/Russia collusion investigation. The fact he’s still drawing a government paycheck and not stamping license plates is proof positive just how messed up the whole system is. And you know what? If I were a Russian or Chinese operative who wanted to inflict serious damage on the United States this is exactly how I would have done it. Get someone like Barack Obama elected, fill the government with snakes like Strzok and Brennan and Clapper, and watch it burn slow and hot until all that’s left are ashes.”
Clinton-Russia collusion is real, it is significant, and it should be investigated – and they all know it.
That is why so many of the pro-Clinton/pro-Obama cabal are out in force today following the Trump-Putin summit. Mr. Putin reminded them he knows the truth and in doing so also reminded them of their active participation in a global pay-to-play coverup the likes of which America has never seen.
It’s tragic that not everyone knows of just how deep the Clinton-Russia collusion goes. Governor Mike Huckabee knows and he lays it out quite accurately and succinctly with the following response to Hillary Clinton speaking ill of the Trump-Putin summit.
Former #2 at the FBI, Andrew McCabe, is said to be willing to sing for federal investigators looking into a vast anti-Trump conspiracy involving high-ranking officials within the Obama government including but not limited to, former Obama FBI Director James Comey. The swamp rats are now turning on each other.
Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe has requested the Senate Judiciary Committee provide him with immunity from prosecution in exchange for testifying at an upcoming congressional hearing focused on how senior officials at the FBI and Justice Department handled the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s private email server, according to a letter obtained by CNN.
“Under the terms of such a grant of use immunity, no testimony or other information provided by Mr. McCabe could be used against him in a criminal case,” wrote Michael Bromwich, a lawyer for McCabe, to Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley, who has requested McCabe testify next week.
…The stakes for McCabe’s appearance, however, are particularly high. The former No. 2 at the FBI is entangled in a separate criminal investigation stemming from an earlier report from the inspector general’s office that concluded he lied to internal investigators. McCabe has steadfastly denied wrongdoing, but any congressional testimony he provides could have serious implications for his criminal case.
“Mr. McCabe is willing to testify, but because of the criminal referral, he must be afforded suitable legal protection,” Bromwich wrote to Grassley. “This is a textbook case for granting use immunity. . . . If this Committee is unwilling or unable to obtain such an order, then Mr. McCabe will have to no choice but to invoke his Fifth Amendment privilege against self-incrimination.”
The Obama era Intelligence community was determined to punish Donald Trump and his supporters for challenging the political status quo. They didn’t actually think Trump would win though. So what was initially a punishment operation turned into a search and destroy operation that pitted the Deep State and its media cohorts against a duly elected President of the United States? That attempt is now being uncovered in real time which in turn has led to a flurry of cover-up activity from such powerful players as the New York Times. And not only are they desperate to save their own skins but even more importantly protect the man at the very top of this political conspiracy food chain – Barack Obama himself.
Above: Former FBI Director James Comey, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, and former CIA Director John Brennan are believed to all have played significant roles in the attempt to illegally influence the 2016 Election and subsequent attacks on a newly-elected president’s administration. Brennan’s role is said to have been particularly important.
“John Brennan should get a good lawyer.” That’s the advice from former U.S. attorney Joe diGenova who laid out the stunning extent of the Deep State operation against Donald Trump:
“We know that Hillary Clinton was illegally exonerated. We knew that a year ago,” the former prosecutor said.
“We know that there was a substantial effort to frame the current president of the United States with crimes by infiltrating his campaign and then his administration with spies that the FBI had set upon them.”
“We have learned that the crimes were committed by the FBI, senior members of the Department of Justice, John Brennan, Mr. [James] Clapper, Mr. [James] Comey and others associated with the Democratic Party,” he continued. “And Donald Trump and his associates committed no crimes.”
“Categorically and unequivocally, it has been proved that the FBI, in violation of all guidelines, all legislation — and I believe they committed crimes in doing so — purposely sent people into the Trump campaign to plant false information, then force that information to be forwarded back to CIA, and then funneled to the FBI, to be used as false information in FISA applications,” he said.
“Everybody involved in that process, who knowingly participated, committed a crime,” DiGenova concluded.
He explained that “criminal referrals have already been made.”
“And I suggest that Mr. Brennan, who loves to make comments about the process, get himself a good lawyer, not a good writer,” DiGenova said.
This weekend the New York Times is spewing one article after another in an attempt to explain away the evidence of Deep State collusion to unduly influence the 2016 Election and destroy a new administration. The NYT is actually pushing an argument that the Deep State was trying to “protect” Mr. Trump’s campaign from the Russians even as the overwhelming evidence says otherwise.
President Trump has often described the Mueller investigation as the “Biggest political witch hunt” in history.
All evidence, including that of illegal spying on the Trump campaign, is proving Mr. Trump right.
For decades those like Bill and Hillary Clinton, James Comey, James Clapper, John Brennan, and yes, Barack Obama, have ignored laws they apparently feel don’t apply to them.
America now waits to see if that is finally going to change.
A district court judge ordered the release of the Weiner laptop. This is the same laptop the James Comey FBI buried under mountains of sealed “protection” to keep secret. The laptop that had the entire Obama intelligence apparatus (and the Clinton Machine) in a panic shortly before the 2016 Election. All the major media outlets knew about this development – but said nothing. The reason why is simple. They fear who might be implicated.
When he was FBI Director James Comey told Congress and the American people that Hillary Clinton’s (illegal) private email server was not hacked.
That was a lie. Comey’s own FBI said as much. This lie reveals yet further proof of the high-ranking cover-up that was underway on Clinton’s behalf and why the Deep State remains so determined to destroy Donald Trump. It’s this kind of information they don’t want getting out.
And not just a broken Hillary Clinton promise but a Democrat Party promise. More and more Democrat voters are finally coming to the realization that politicians like Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama don’t actually care about you. All they care about is your vote – and once they have that you no longer exist to them.
Leave the Democrat Plantation and join the FREE THINKER MOVEMENT that is sweeping the nation.
A longtime D.C. staffer lays out where the Trump vs Deep State war is at and where it is now likely headed:
“…Regarding the silly DNC lawsuit against everyone/everything 2016 Election-related under the sun. They’ve been keeping that in their back pocket for a while now. The fact they played that card shows how desperate they are. The narrative is slipping away from them. They need to keep the truth hidden regarding what they did and what they’ve been doing with our elections for a very long time.”
“…Trump remains vulnerable to attack but he’s built up some impressive defenses and is quick to react. Know this. He has proven to be one tough SOB. Most would have collapsed by now. Trump is an absolute beast. I don’t know how he’s managed to hold on this long and now has the strength to be fighting back so hard. Amazing.”
“…A big background player in all of this is Clapper. Look for his name to suddenly pop up with a lot more frequency in the coming days.”
“…Besides the Trump White House, there are three main camps in all of this: the Clinton machine, the Obama machine, and the Deep State which controls the media narrative. The Deep State appears to be siding with the Obama machine which is leaving the Clintons more exposed than they have ever been. The unknown is who the Trump White House goes after the hardest from here on out. For now, it looks like they are letting their enemies knife one another. Smart. I’ve never once said Hillary Clinton could face charges. Guess what? I’m saying it now. She could. It really is getting that intense. Some in the media know it. They’re doing everything they can to prevent anything like that from happening but if they have to choose they’ll choose Obama over the Clintons and the Clintons know it.”
“…This town is buzzing more than it has in a long time. This war has a whole lot of people looking over their shoulder waiting for a shoe to drop. That puts Trump’s own danger level at its highest level since he took the Oath. For the first time since this war started his enemies are truly scared. That makes them even more dangerous.”
Lost in the haze of the Syria bombing, the Establishment Media’s purposeful ignorance, and the ongoing ripples following the stunning FBI raid on the offices of President Trump’s longtime attorney, is the scathing outline by the Inspector General regarding how the Obama Department of Justice aggressively shut down what was to be a widespread investigation into the Clinton Foundation looking into allegations of widespread financial crimes.
Talk about obstruction of justice!
Judicial Watch’s Tom Fitten caught the Clinton Foundation information within the IG report and is doing his best to get the word out even as the Establishment Media covers the eyes and ears of the American public in order to keep that information largely unknown:
Breaking: DOJ IG report presents new evidence Obama DOJ sought to shut down FBI investigation of Clinton Foundation. Top Obama DOJ official "expressed concerns about FBI agents taking overt steps in the CF [Clinton Foundation] Investigation during the presidential campaign." https://t.co/WIECL5s6pj
There were rank and file FBI agents said to be increasingly frustrated that their efforts to investigate the Clinton Crime Syndicate were being halted at every turn. This move to insulate the Clintons (and likely the Obama White House) from damage was overseen at the highest levels of the FBI and Obama DOJ. These same high-level Deep State figures are the very same ones who have been orchestrating the ongoing attacks against President Trump – attacks that likely continue to be orchestrated by the Obama/Jarett Machine with input from the Clintons. (Like what took place during the secret tarmac meeting between then Obama AG Loretta Lynch and Bill Clinton. Top officials at the FBI refuse to hand over documents regarding that meeting due to their being “highly classified” even though both Lynch and Clinton claim they just talked about the weather and their grandkids.)
The Deep State continues to believe it controls the narrative. It’s up to all of you to prove them wrong.
On the surface, it appears to be a sit-down interview with a former Attorney General primarily meant to allow her the opportunity to defend the Department of Justice and her own increasingly troubled legacy. In reality, it is an example of carefully crafted damage control with the full involvement and support of NBC.
The Obama and Clinton Machines are pushing Loretta Lynch out there to lay the protective groundwork for their own survival in order to prevent their mutual destruction as POTUS Trump is said to be ready and willing to reveal some shocking details involving Obama, Clinton, Lynch, Comey, and others later this month.
Congressman Paul Gosar didn’t hold back in a recent interview and he’s now begging the American people to pay more attention and demand answers from their political leaders. According to Gosar, the Obama White House micromanaged everything from drone attacks to illegal surveillance on political opponents and was able to do so via very carefully placed DOJ and FBI firewalls that to this day continue to insulate Barack Obama and other Obama-related officials, from justice.
Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ), a leading conservative member of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, told Breitbart News Daily on Wednesday that he believes that there is an interconnectivity between various high-profile Barack Obama-era scandals and the latest revelations about corruption at the Department of Justice and FBI.
Gosar was asked during the interview on the SiriusXM 125 Patriot Channel show about the corruption on display in the release of the famed memo from House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI) chairman Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) that detailed FISA court abuses by the FBI and DOJ in the lead-up to the 2016 election and in the months that followed now President Donald Trump’s win during the transition and even during his presidency.
That all came before the release of new text messages between senior FBI officials Lisa Page and Peter Strzok that detailed how Obama himself was overseeing everything personally on the Hillary Clinton email investigation and rivaling Trump probe. Gosar detailed how this same corruption that is now being further exposed first reared its ugly head in the earliest days of the administration of now former President Barack Obama, with the Operation Fast and Furious scandal then the IRS and Benghazi scandals—all of which had intricate levels of DOJ and FBI involvement.
“If you don’t think the [Operation] Fast and Furious—attacking the Second Amendment—along with Operation Choke Point, you know that sacred amendment that holds our government accountable and protection for all the other amendments, if you don’t think Benghazi and the lack of accountability when they knew something was going to come, if you don’t think that the IRS and the attacking of your adversaries financially, and the unmasking are unrelated things, think again,” Gosar said.
“You know, this previous administration—the Obama administration—micromanaged everything out of the White House. And I challenge people, remember the Syrian strikes that were actually handpicked and dictated by the president at that time. This gentleman was involved in everything. That’s where all this leads. When you look at the cover-up with the email scandal with Hillary Clinton, it gets—it should have pointed out exactly what we’ve been talking about, that this was the weaponization of our Justice Department not only to cover up for the previous administration and the wrongdoing and ills of them and those associated with them, but also to attack a sitting president—actually a candidate at the time, then president-elect and then a current, sitting president you know of an opposition party. This is outrageous, and you are exactly right we have got to get to the bottom of this so that people are held accountable because that is what America wants. But it’s going to be a hard, slow slog trying to get this information out. But it’s coming, as witnessed by the memo from Devin Nunes and as witnessed by Grassley and Graham and new revelations and the Inspector General—don’t forget Michael Horowitz sitting out there as well.”
Gosar is a key member of the House Oversight Committee who led the way in pushing to hold now former Attorney General Eric Holder accountable for Fast and Furious. He was one of the first members of Congress to demand Holder’s resignation, and helped lead the effort to hold Holder in both criminal and civil contempt of Congress for his refusal to be transparent about the matter.
Since his departure from the White House the Establishment Media has been heralding Barack Obama’s “scandal free” presidency. It’s an absurd declaration of course given the rampant waste, fraud, and abuse that ran amok for all of the eight Obama years that included pay for play schemes, the use of the IRS as a political weapon, Benghazi, the creation of ISIS, and many-many more.
And now comes the Nunes memo which reveals some of what was a widespread and stunningly abusive overreach of federal surveillance by the Obama administration.
Landmines left behind by the Obama administration and the Clinton campaign might soon start detonating—on Democrats.
The publication yesterday by the House Intelligence Committee, under the leadership of chairman Devin Nunes, of a four-page summary memo regarding FBI surveillance of a Trump campaign advisor in 2016 is the long-awaited opening act of an extended drama about the Obama administration’s abuse of power—which, when all is revealed, might yet outdo that of the Nixon administration.
Obama concealed his sharp-edged, Chicago-style machine politics under the rhetorical cover of progressivism. He was protected by a press corps that first enlisted in his administration and then fought to stop Donald Trump. But now that Obama is out of office, his ability to intimidate is much diminished. This past week, a 2005 picture of a beaming Obama next to a bright-eyed Louis Farrakhan surfaced, after having been held back for more than a decade at the behest of a member of the Congressional Black Caucus. Senator Robert Menendez of New Jersey, who had been tried for corruption by Obama’s Justice Department after he refused to toe the party line about the “peace-loving” mullahs of Iran, has now seen the charges against him dropped. Z Street, a hawkish nonprofit supporter of Benjamin Netanyahu’s government in Israel, had been tied up with IRS matters since 2009; it has just been released from its legal chains. Democrats are holding to the line that the prophet of hope and change ran a pure administration, virtually free of scandal. But the memo is probably just the beginning; we’re likely to see many more revelations come out.
Obama isn’t directly mentioned in the memo. But he’s nonetheless implicated through his appointees’ apparent efforts to clear Hillary Clinton in her State Department email scandal while undermining her opponent, Trump, through the veneer of legality provided by FISA (the Foreign Intelligence Security Act) warrants, justified solely by the so-called Steele Dossier. The dossier was paid for by Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee; it was created by former MI6 agent Christopher Steele, who despised Trump, and the “research” firm Fusion GPS. The FISA Court, supervised by Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts, was never told about the unverified dossier’s origins.
As for matters of Russian collusion: Fusion GPS was tied to Vladimir Putin’s associates in the Kremlin, who wanted to undermine the Magnitsky Act, a U.S. law that sanctions Russian officials believed to be connected with the murder of anti-Kremlin lawyer Sergei Magnitsky. The “journalists” at CNN made much of Donald Trump Jr.’s 20-minute meeting with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya at Trump Tower in 2016, while ignoring her meeting, before and after that one, with Fusion’s cofounder, former Wall Street Journal reporter Glen Simpson, who was working to overturn the Magnitsky Act. Simpson slimed Hermitage Capital’s Willian Browder, who had helped pass the Magnitsky legislation and authored the important book Red Notice.
Wonder of wonders, the liberal press, long opposed to prior restraint when it comes to publishing material on American intelligence, is howling about the release of the Intelligence Committee memo.

Whispers published Jarrett’s order) not all journalists are following orders. Maria Bartiromo of Fox Business and formerly a longtime member of the CNBC crew, let it be known how she views what the memo revealed with a scathing tweet against the corruption that has run rampant throughout D.C. for far too long:
