REPORT: James Clapper Lied Under Oath Regarding Leaking Anti-Trump Dossier To CNN

A fake dossier was constructed by anti-Trump operatives eventually linked to the Hillary Clinton campaign. Obama government officials, knowing the dossier was highly suspect, proceeded to leak it to high-placed media allies in order to initiate and further promote its anti-Trump agenda. 

James Clapper, serving as Barack Obama’s National Intelligence Agency Director, appears to have clearly been among those involved.

Days earlier D.C. Whispers informed readers that Clapper’s name was about to become front and center in the ongoing investigation into the fake Trump Dossier as well as his part in coordinating the anti-Trump attack with other Obama-era officials including then-FBI Director James Comey.

It appears that time has now arrived:

APRIL 27, 2018 By Sean Davis

A newly declassified report on Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. elections reveals that former intelligence chief James Clapper lied to Congress about information he shared with CNN on the infamous Steele dossier.

In one of the findings within the 253-page report, the House intelligence committee wrote that Clapper leaked details of a dossier briefing given to then-President-elect Donald Trump to CNN’s Jake Tapper, lied to Congress about the leak, and was rewarded with a CNN contract a few months later.

“Clapper flatly denied ‘discussing[ing] the dossier [compiled by Steele] or any other intelligence related to Russia hacking of the 2016 election with journalists,’” the committee found.

When asked directly whether he had ever discussed the dossier with any journalists, Clapper replied that he had not, according to a transcript of the proceedings:

MR. ROONEY: Did you discuss the dossier or any other intelligence related to Russia hacking of the 2016 election with journalists?

MR. CLAPPER: No.

The former DNI later changed his story after he was confronted specifically about his communications with Jake Tapper of CNN.

…Clapper, who previously lied to Congress about whether the U.S. government was electronically spying on millions of Americans, was subsequently hired by CNN just months after his leak. Although he eventually apologized to Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) for lying to Congress about government mass surveillance of American citizens, he subsequently told MSNBC that the question to which he responded–“Does the NSA collect any type of data at all on millions or hundreds of millions of Americans?”–was a gotcha question similar to, “When did you stop beating your wife?”


 

The Dark Empire Strikes Back: A Second Trump Dossier & Fed-Inspired Drop In The Dow On Eve Of State of the Union

A DESDEMONA GUEST COLUMN:

“PROTECT THE KING!”

So went the clumsy globalist cry to save the man-child former President of the Divided States of America. Yet despite these repeated threats the memo still looms.

A second Trump dossier, produced by the media, was then hastily pushed out to steal headlines and give spineless politicians pause. Sometimes a dog needs its leash jerked to remind the little beast of its true master.

President Trump has the memo even as the one called McMaster seeks to convince him to redact it to the point of obsolescence.

Meanwhile, the note on the Fed’s free money platform upon which the previous administration’s false economy was maintained is being called in – right on time. The markets now lurch. It is all smoke inside of mirrors. Reflections of things not really there. Lies layered upon lies necessary for the great unknowing to continue.

It is all intended leverage against the Trump to create fear and uncertainty and continued distraction.

Ah, but what of the man called Ray? He reviewed that memo. And then what? The McCabe was gone within hours – removed and told not to attempt to step foot back into FBI headquarters. The number 302 plays very heavily in all this. Shame on you Mr. McCabe.  Your shame is all their shame, though: The Obama, The Clinton, The Mueller, The Comey – and so many others.

Will the globalists scorch the earth or continue to try and harvest the fruits of their deceptions?

Today the media talks of “a second dossier” and “a falling stock market” and a “President in peril.”

Lies-lies-lies.

The Beast snaps its jaws not out of confident aggression – but growing panic that The Trump is now preparing to pull them apart.

And behind those snapping jaws we find this, that, and the other…

REPORT: John McCain Worked With Foreign Agents, Obama White House, DNC, & FBI To Try And Defeat Trump In 2016

OH MY.

Whatever legacy Senator John McCain might have had left, it’s taking a brutal beating with today’s stunning revelations via this report out today:

Fusion GPS Admits They Used John McCain to Pass Anti-Trump Dossier to Obama-Era Intel Agencies

The founders of the controversial opposition research firm Fusion GPS admitted that they helped the researcher hired to compile the infamous, largely discredited 35-page dossier on President Donald Trump to share the document with Sen. John McCain.

The goal of providing the dossier to McCain, the Fusion GPS founders explained, was to pass the information contained in the questionable document to the U.S. intelligence community under the Obama administration.

The disclosure raises questions about whether McCain knew that the information he delivered to the intelligence community was actually an opposition document reportedly funded by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee.

McCain’s office did not reply yesterday to a Breitbart News request for comment on the matter.

Dossier was reportedly basis for Obama administration moves

According to the BBC, the dossier served as a “roadmap” for the FBI’s investigation into claims of coordination between Moscow and members of Trump’s presidential campaign during the Obama administration.

BREAKING: Author of False “Trump Dossier” Refererred To DOJ For Criminal Activity

Ah, another remarkable and far more important bit of news that the Establishment Media is ignoring in favor of 24/7 anti-Trump bashing.

Christopher Steele, the primary author of the infamous “Trump Dossier” which was used as justification by the Obama White House to initiate illegal surveillance on the Trump campaign and which has direct ties to high-ranking officials from both political parties (including, but not limited to, the Obama White House) and the Deep State, has just been referred to the Department of Justice for a potential criminal violation:

Facing Libel Lawsuit, Trump Dossier Author Now Backs Away From Claims Of Any Trump-Russia Collussion

Christopher Steele, the former British Intelligence agent who was alleged to have been working for both the Hillary Clinton campaign and (indirectly) the Obama White House, and who was largely responsible for pushing the now-widely discredited and infamous “Trump Dossier” which the Obama-era FBI used as justification for illegal surveillance of a political campaign, is backing way off his claims of Trump-Russia collusion in the face of a libel lawsuit against him. 

Excerpt via The Washington Times:

Mr. Steele wrote 35 pages of memos in which he said Trump aides were part of a vast conspiracy with Moscow to interfere in the election against Hillary Clinton. The unverified charges were spread by Fusion GPS, the Washington-based political research firm that first commissioned the report. Mr. Steele bragged to Mother Jones magazine that he started the Mueller investigation by convincing FBI agents that summer about the credibility of his dossier. It was later revealed that the campaign of Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton helped fund the dossier, meaning that in essence her paid agent was spreading unsubstantiated charges to get to the FBI to investigate her opponent, critics say.

Now that Mr. Steele must defend those charges in a London courtroom, his confidence level has shifted down several notches.

 

 

…In one answer, Mr. Steele refers to the intelligence he gathered as “limited.” On the charge of collusion by Mr. Trump and his campaign advisers, he now says there was only “possible coordination.”

 

 

…In Washington, Republicans have pressed the FBI to disclose how it relied on an unproven document to investigate Mr. Trump and possibly to obtain surveillance warrants. In public, the FBI and Justice Department have declined to answer such questions.

—————-

 

The ‘Trump Dossier” was a hoax from the beginning – a tool used to weaponized the FBI against a presidential candidate (Trump) who was outside the approved Establishment D.C. bubble. All available evidence to date would indicate Barack Obama was a willing participant in this illegal use of federal power to try and sway an election and then the resulting election outcome. The Obama White House colluded with the Hillary Clinton campaign and both were aided by Deep State operatives found throughout multiple U.S. Intelligence agencies.

Here is where things get particularly worrisome for POTUS Trump. The Deep State, linked to the Obama and Clinton machines, cannot allow open and honest investigations into what actually transpired. As more layers are peeled away regarding the war against Donald Trump, more and more would be revealed regarding the blatant criminality of the entire government.

The Deep State is more determined than ever to prevent such a revealing of truth to happen.


 

 

SHUT IT DOWN: Wife Of Demoted FBI Investigator Worked For Anti-Trump Fusion GPS During 2016 Campaign

Will there be any end to this corruption? Last week we learned a top-ranking FBI official who had been on Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team that was looking into alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia had been let go due to strong evidence of anti-Trump bias. Today we also learn that the wife of this deposed FBI agent was actually working for Fusion GPS, the controversial political dirt firm which originally created the now infamous (and false) anti-Trump dossier – the very dossier that was used by the Obama administration to initiate illegal surveillance of Trump campaign officials!!!

Via Fox News:

Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., the ranking Democrat on the intelligence committee, declined to comment on the original disclosure about Mr. Ohr’s secret meetings, and did not immediately respond to a request for comment about Mrs. Ohr.

Congressman Schiff cited the dossier often as a reason to initiate the Mueller investigation into the Trump campaign over allegations of Russian collusion. Now he doesn’t want to talk about it.

REPORT: Fake Trump Dossier Used To Initiate Equally Fake Trump-Russia Collusion Investigation

FAKE. FAKE. FAKE.

That was the Obama-era Deep State operation whereby a manufactured (and now infamous) “Trump dossier” was bought and paid for, at least in part, by Obama and Clinton-linked operatives in order to provide legal cover to weaponized the investigative arm of the federal government against the opposition party presidential opponent – one Donald J. Trump.

Byran York of the Washington Examiner put it this way today:

…Steele continued to file dossier reports to the Clinton campaign and, apparently, to the FBI during the July-August-September-October time frame — in other words, the period leading up to the November 8 presidential election. There were reports dated July 30; August 5, 10, and 22; September 14; and October 12, 18, 19, and 20.
The challenge — for Steele and for Fusion GPS, the opposition research firm that hired him with funding from the Clinton campaign — was to get the dossier’s charges out in public, where they might influence the presidential race.
 As the election approached, the Clinton campaign, through Fusion GPS, directed Steele to give the dossier information to a few journalists. At the “end of September,” and again in October, according to British court papers, Steele personally briefed reporters from the New York Times, Washington Post, CNN, the New Yorker, and Yahoo.
 One day earlier, on October 30, Harry Reid tried again to push the information into public view with a letter to Comey stating that the FBI possessed “explosive information about close ties and coordination between Donald Trump, his advisors, and the Russian government.”
Of course, Comey knew what the FBI possessed. The point of Reid’s letter was to get it out in public as the election approached. Again, there was some attention paid, but November 8 came and went without Americans excitedly discussing something called the Trump dossier.
…What is absolutely clear is that, beyond any investigation, the dossier has proven enormously useful politically to the president’s adversaries. At that House Intelligence Committee hearing on March 20, 2017, for example, at which Comey announced the existence of the investigation, Democrats spent a lot of time raising very specific allegations from the dossier. Carter Page’s name was mentioned 28 times, and Sechin’s 11 times. Comey said he could not discuss the allegations in public. But Democrats made the dossier a centerpiece of their case against Trump.
 Now the moving parts, as far as the dossier is concerned, are the Mueller investigation and Congress. With Mueller, it’s impossible to determine whether he is using the dossier and if so, in what way. For its part, Congress is trying to uncover the dossier story — what did the FBI do to try to verify it? Did agents use it as a basis for seeking wiretaps? — but getting information out of the FBI, as well as Fusion GPS, has been like pulling teeth, even after a House subpoena.
 Ultimately more will become public. But if the past months have shown anything, it is that the FBI will not reveal its secrets, even to its legitimate congressional overseers, without a fight.

———-

 

Likely every leading member of Congress knew the source of funding for the false Trump dossier came from the Clinton camp and the Obama/Comey FBI. It also cannot be emphasized enough how James Comey used a document funded in part by the FBI to justify wiretaps against private citizens linked to the Trump campaign. That alone is many times more illegal than anything that took place during Watergate. The Obama White House, the Clinton campaign, and the Comey FBI appear to all have been leaking the false Trump dossier to trusted media sources who also likely knew that is was a complete fabrication/political hit piece.

Bryan York’s report further emphasizes that among the D.C. power structure there really is no difference between “Democrat” and “Republican” – they are all Establishment working against the interests of the American people.

The war to take back the country continues.

REPORT: Barack Obama Paid Nearly $1 Million To Firm That Created Fake Trump Dossier

Another layer of the rotten onion that is Washington D.C. has been uncovered. Check out the following from a just-released report by The Federalist:

Since April of 2016, Obama’s campaign organization has paid nearly a million dollars to the law firm that funneled money to Fusion GPS to compile a dossier of unverified allegations against Donald Trump.

Former president Barack Obama’s official campaign organization has directed nearly a million dollars to the same law firm that funneled money to Fusion GPS, the firm behind the infamous Steele dossier. Since April of 2016, Obama For America (OFA) has paid over $972,000 to Perkins Coie, records filed with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) show.

The Washington Post reported last week that Perkins Coie, an international law firm, was directed by both the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and Hillary Clinton’s campaign to retain Fusion GPS in April of 2016 to dig up dirt on then-candidate Donald Trump.

…OFA, Obama’s official campaign arm in 2016, paid nearly $800,000 to Perkins Coie in 2016 alone, according to FEC records. The first 2016 payments to Perkins Coie, classified only as “Legal Services,” were made April 25-26, 2016, and totaled $98,047. A second batch of payments, also classified as “Legal Services,” were disbursed to the law firm on September 29, 2016, and totaled exactly $700,000. Payments from OFA to Perkins Coie in 2017 totaled $174,725 through August 22, 2017.

FEC records as well as federal court records show that Marc Elias, the Perkins Coie lawyer whom the Washington Post reported was responsible for the payments to Fusion GPS on behalf of Clinton’s campaign and the DNC, also previously served as a counsel for OFA. In Shamblin v. Obama for America, a 2013 case in federal court in Florida, federal court records list Elias as simultaneously serving as lead attorney for both OFA and the DNC.

—————

Let us summarize the above increasingly troubling picture:

***The law firm hired to initiate the false Trump dossier during a presidential campaign was receiving funding by the then sitting President of the United States. This same law firm has strong ties not only to Obama for America, but the DNC.

***The Obama White House used the fake dossier that it helped to finance to order the illegal surveillance of the Trump campaign. A sitting president was spying on an opposing candidate via the taxpayer-funded resources of the FBI, CIA, etc. This kind of act is stunningly illegal.

***Now a bit of explanation on why such activities so often utilize the services of law firms. The Clintons have been particularly adept at this practice over the years. Those in power use law firms in order to establish attorney-client privilege. It is a powerful wall of defense against investigations – a firewall if you will. Barack Obama appears to have been working hand-in-hand with Hillary Clinton and Perkins Cole to attack then-candidate and later President-Elect, Donald Trump and using taxpayer funds to do so.

The above story is the first verifiable link between Barack Obama and the growing stink of the fake Trump dossier. Whispers suggest more such links are soon to follow. It should be the #1 news story at this moment but the Establishment Media is doing all it can to push these revelations aside. Don’t let them succeed. Educate. Share. Enlighten.

BREAKING: Clintons, DNC, FBI, & Media All Found Colluding With Russia Against Trump

Hold tight because information is coming fast and furious now.

Multiple media outlets now reporting that the Hillary Clinton campaign coordinated with Fusion GPS, a D.C. based political opo research firm, to create and then distribute the infamous “Trump dossier” that attempted to spread salacious fabrications against Donald Trump and his campaign. This false dossier was then used to wage the equally false Trump-Russia investigation that is still ongoing in Congress.

Whispers indicate many high-placed figures in the Establishment Media already knew this. Not only did they refuse to report on it, but they knowingly continued reporting on the false premise of the Trump-Russia investigation.

Check out this excerpt from the SEATTLE TIMES:

Marc Elias, a lawyer representing the Clinton campaign and the DNC, retained Fusion GPS, a Washington, D.C., firm, to conduct the research. Fusion GPS hired dossier author Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence officer with ties to the FBI and the U.S. intelligence community.

Elias and his law firm, Seattle-based Perkins Coie, retained the firm in April 2016 on behalf of the Clinton campaign and the DNC. Before that agreement, Fusion GPS’ research into Trump was funded by a still unknown Republican client during the GOP primary.

 The Clinton campaign and the DNC, through the law firm, continued to fund Fusion GPS’ research through the end of October 2016, days before Election Day.
The Clinton campaign paid Perkins Coie $5.6 million in legal fees from June 2015 to December 2016, according to campaign-finance records, and the DNC paid the firm $3.6 million in “legal and compliance consulting’’ since Nov. 2015 — though it’s impossible to tell how much of that work was for other legal matters and how much of it related to Fusion GPS.

After the election, the FBI agreed to pay Steele to continue gathering intelligence, but the bureau pulled out of -the arrangement after Steele was publicly identified.

The New York Post put it this way:

The explosive report in the Washington Post goes a long way to explaining how the dossier was so widely spread among political reporters during the election. The Clinton camp must have passed it out like Halloween candy to its media handmaidens.

The Post report provides possible answers to other questions, too. Because Clinton’s team paid for the dossier, it’s likely that she gave it to the FBI, where James Comey planned to hire the former British agent who had compiled it to keep digging dirt on Trump.

The finding also raises the possibility that the dossier is what led the Obama White House to snoop on members of Trump’s team, and leak the “unmasked” names to the anti-Trump media in a bid to help Clinton.

In short, we now have compelling evidence that the dossier was the largest and dirtiest dirty trick of the 2016 campaign. And Clinton, who has played the victim card ever since her loss, was behind it the whole time.

—————–

The Deep State war against POTUS Trump is real. The above makes that all too clear. The false narrative was being actively promoted by U.S. Intelligence, the Establishment Media, and the Establishment political class in this country – all in an effort to try and destroy the first true political outsider to win the White House in generations. When you include the Clinton-Russia uranium deal what we have here is the single greatest political scandal in American history.

The Establishment will try and minimize these shocking revelations. DON’T ALLOW THEM TO DO THAT.

Share. Educate. Share some more.

You are the TRUE resistance – and we are at war.

Hmmm…Globalist Supported Firm That Created False Trump Dossier Refuses To Cooperate W/Investigation

Via Business Insider:

The founders of the firm behind the Trump-Russia dossier say they’ll refuse to testify before the House Intelligence Committee

The cofounders of the opposition research firm that produced the dossier alleging ties between President Donald Trump’s campaign team and Russia will invoke constitutional privileges and decline to testify before the House Intelligence Committee, their attorney wrote in a letter obtained by Business Insider on Monday.

“We cannot in good conscience do anything but advise our clients to stand on their constitutional privileges, the attorney work product doctrine and contractual obligations,” wrote Fusion GPS counsel Josh Levy in response to subpoenas issued earlier this month by the committee’s chairman, Rep. Devin Nunes. 

Levy argued that complying with the subpoenas would violate “the First Amendment rights” of the cofounders — Glenn Simpson, Thomas Catan, and Peter Fritsch — “and would chill any American running for office … from conducting confidential opposition research in an election.” 

———————-

It must be noted that Fusion GPS has already been accused of acting as a foreign agent that has repeatedly meddled with election outcomes including those here in the United States. The false Trump Dossier was itself largely created by Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence agent. The dossier was intended to be used by the then-Hillary Clinton campaign to counter the email leaks from top members of Mrs. Clinton’s own campaign. Those emails showed campaign operatives mocking minorities, the poor, as well as proving direct collusion with the media. In effect, Team Clinton was seeing their own factual words repelling voters so it attempted to create a false narrative about Donald Trump as a means of fighting back.

They failed.

Donald Trump is now POTUS Trump.

Deep State Tries To Stall Clinton & Obama -Linked Anti-Trump Dossier Investigation

High-ranking figures within the U.S. government were actively working against the Donald Trump campaign for POTUS. This effort took place over several months, including illegal surveillance of private citizens as well as widespread collusion with influential Establishment/Social Media figures.

And now the Deep State is trying desperately to cover its tracks.

Via The Washington Examiner:

Showdown looms over Trump dossier; FBI misses third deadline to turn over subpoenaed documents

A third deadline has now passed for the FBI and Justice Department to give the House Intelligence Committee subpoenaed documents related to the Trump dossier. And for a third time, the bureau has not produced the material.

…The Russia allegations were compiled by a former British spy, Christopher Steele, who was commissioned by the opposition research firm Fusion GPS, which is thought to have been paid for the work by wealthy supporters of Hillary Clinton. The FBI reportedly considered taking over the dossier project in the fall of 2016, when the campaign was at its height, leading Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley to say the dossier matter raised “questions about the FBI’s independence from politics.”

…Both Grassley and the House Intelligence Committee have been interested in learning if the FBI ever used the “salacious and unverified” dossier as a basis for requesting surveillance on anyone in the Trump circle. Those questions only intensified this week with reports that the FBI wiretapped Trump associate and former campaign chairman Paul Manafort during the transition period.

Four weeks ago, on Aug. 24, the House Intelligence Committee subpoenaed the FBI and Justice Department, seeking all internal FBI reports “incorporating, relying on, or referring to” information provided by Steele, his sources, or Fusion GPS. The committee also asked for documents on any FBI or Justice “efforts to corroborate, validate, or evaluate” Steele’s information. And the subpoena sought any surveillance applications that included any information or were based on any information, provided by Steele.

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.

————–

The reason for the delay is simple. The fabricated “Trump dossier” represents a direct link between the anti-Trump factions within the U.S. government, the Hillary Clinton campaign, and the then-Obama White House. Some very powerful forces want this evidence buried – forever.

The will of the voters was nearly supplanted by a small group of powerful elites. Those elites have since retreated back into the shadows and want nothing to do with the light of truth shining upon them. The entirety of the false Trump-Russia narrative has been little more than providing cover for their criminal wrongdoing.
