“The memo isn’t treasonous. It reveals a treasonous effort by the Democrats to use our intelligence agencies to rig an election and overturn the will of the voters.” — Daniel Greenfield
They wouldn’t have received a FISA (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court) warrant without the dossier. The dossier was presented to the FISA court as if it was true. The court was not told that the Democrats actually paid for this. — Congressman Devin Nunes
No Equal Justice
What I want to know is why Rod Rosenstein, Bruce Ohr, his wife Nellie Ohr who worked for Fusion GPS, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, Zebley, Andrew McCabe, Comey, Dana Boente, Hillary, Brennan, Clapper, Yates, Loretta Lynch, et al., aren’t in handcuffs and being led away for conspiracy to commit treason.

If this was reversed and the Republicans had conspired against the Democrats to destroy a presidential candidate and then the presidency, they’d already be locked up and ready for the firing squad. Devin Nunes and a few others are carrying the water for the entire party, while the moderates lean with the Democrats.
Comey, Yates, McCabe, Rosenstein, and Boente allegedly signed (FISA) applications that were badly tainted. Rep. Jim Jordan noted, “FBI takes ‘salacious and unverified’ dossier to secret court to get secret warrant to spy on a fellow American, and FBI doesn’t tell the court that the DNC/Clinton campaign paid for that dossier. And they did that four times.”
And why is fired former FBI Director James Comey free when he leaked classified information to the NY Times, and get this…he is going to be teaching an ethical leadership course at the College of William and Mary next fall!
It is inconceivable that Strzok, who called Trump “an idiot,” was the lead investigator on both the Clinton and Trump cases, and we now know from Strzok’s text messages that he was instrumental in trying to destroy the Trump campaign and presidency. Strzok was the Chief of the Counterespionage Section during the FBI’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a personal email server. Why is he still an FBI agent?
The Congressional Intelligence Committee exposed the planned coup against America’s duly elected president with a memo written by Devin Nunes, Chair of the Committee. Everything we’ve suspected is true, and there is much more to come. Nunes is a hero in exposing the rot in the DOJ, the FBI and the Democrat party. This is a scandal that far surpasses the Watergate scandal which caused the resignation of President Nixon. It is as damning as President Warren Harding’s Teapot Dome scandal of the 1920s.
Let’s look back 100 years in American politics.
The Teapot Dome Scandal
The Teapot Dome Scandal of the 1920s shocked Americans by revealing an unprecedented level of greed and corruption within the federal government. The culture was immersed in the “roaring 20s,” when people defied Prohibition, indulged in new styles of dancing and dressing, and rejected many traditional moral standards. Nevertheless, the culture was far more conservative than it is today.
Teapot Dome was regarded as the “greatest and most sensational scandal in the history of American politics.” It damaged the public reputation of the Harding administration, which was already severely diminished by its controversial handling of the Great Railroad Strike of 1922 and the President’s veto of the Bonus Bill in 1922 to WWI veterans.
The scandal involved oil tycoons, poker-playing politicians, illegal liquor sales, a murder-suicide, a womanizing president, Harding, (sound familiar?) and a bagful of bribery cash delivered on the sly. In the end, the scandal would empower the Senate to conduct rigorous investigations into government corruption. It also marked the first time a U.S. cabinet official served jail time for a felony committed while in office.
Teapot Dome really didn’t break until after Harding’s death in 1923, but it was so like today’s corruption at the top levels of the DOJ and FBI involving Obama, Hillary and the Democrat party. The present scandal outweighs the past inasmuch as this is political treason.
Remember General Douglas MacArthur’s famous quote, “I am concerned for the security of our great Nation; not so much because of any threat from without, but because of the insidious forces working from within.”
Rigging the Election
Journalist Daniel Greenfield wrote, “The Clinton campaign had enlisted figures in the FBI and the DOJ to manipulate an election. The coup against America operated as a ‘state within a state’ inside the United States government.”
And just who do you think was behind protecting Hillary from prosecution? It was Obama using a pseudonymous email account, who had repeatedly communicated with Secretary Clinton over her private, non-secure email account, and lied about it.
It is important to understand that the deep state is especially concentrated in the intelligence and security apparatus of the federal government.
Today’s scandal is all about the Obama DOJ helping the Democratic candidate for President to destroy her opposition in order to keep all of their illegal activities safe from public view. This isn’t Russia, Russia, Russia and Carter Page, this is Obama, Hillary and the Democrats trying first to rig the presidential election, and then using the Mueller investigation to destroy our duly elected president.
The political origins of the Steele dossier were known by people at the Department of Justice and the FBI, and this means Loretta Lynch, James Comey and on up to Obama. People knew that the Steele dossier was an opposition research document from the Clinton campaign. It was not intelligence. They knew there was collusion with a foreign agent to influence the 2016 election, but did not inform the FISA court. Adding to their conspiracy, they included media reports on the dossier in the FISA court application as if the media had done investigative reporting. In fact, it was Steele who had leaked information to the media.
Obama’s DOJ, via the FBI, used the phony dossier to spy on former Trump foreign policy advisor, Carter Page. And Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein approved one of several applications to extend surveillance of former Trump campaign advisor Page, and he defended the Mueller investigation before Congress.
During a recent speech shortly before the release of the Nunes memo, Attorney General Jeff Sessions praised Rod Rosenstein. The AG now seems to be coming out of his hidey hole and noticing there’s an investigation, but Devin Nunes is way ahead of him.
Illegal Surveillance and Intelligence Abuse
Carter Page was improperly surveilled partly on the basis of information provided by Christopher Steele. The Nunes memo says top law-enforcement officials knew the former British intelligence agent was being paid through intermediaries by the Democratic Party when they sought the warrant and the renewals. Steele’s information was an essential basis for the warrant, the memo says. That is the crux of this entire fake Mueller investigation.
We know that Hillary Clinton paid for the phony dossier on Trump, it was written by Christopher Steele with the assistance of Russian agents. Steele was ardently against Trump becoming President. Glenn R. Simpson, the co-founder of the controversial opposition research firm Fusion GPS hired Steele to do the work cited in the anti-Trump dossier.
The four-page memo, written by Nunes and his staff, alleges intelligence abuse by the DOJ and FBI during the 2016 Trump campaign, citing a high-ranking government official who says both agencies would never have sought surveillance warrants in the absence of a disputed anti-Trump dossier funded by Democrats.
DOJ and FBI Try to Stall
Remember the FBI and the DOJ refused to answer subpoenas from the House Intelligence Committee for over a year, and now they’re freaking out about what’s been released. Democrats claimed releasing the Nunes memo was treasonous, and might be revealing sources and methods that would endanger fellow Americans in the intelligence community. The memo isn’t treasonous. It reveals a treasonous effort by the Democrats to use our intelligence agencies to rig an election and overturn the will of the voters.
The Constitution requires the Congress to oversee the DOJ and FBI. For a year we’ve been allowed to see the filthy lying made-up “dossier” prepared by Fusion GPS and paid for by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic Party. But the DOJ and FBI wanted to keep the truth of their crimes hidden from the American public.
The House made the memo public under an obscure rule that has never been previously invoked, according to the Congressional Research Service. The rule dates back to the creation of the House and Senate Intelligence Committees in the 1970s after Watergate, of a secret Vietnam War study called the Pentagon Papers. Daniel Ellsberg released them to the public and proved that President Lyndon Johnson had systematically lied to the public and Congress.
Mueller Investigating the Wrong People
We know the special counsel is investigating the wrong people! And on purpose! The special counsel needs to be investigating the Clinton campaign and its conspiring with Russia to influence the outcome of a presidential election and then question the legitimacy of that election after it had happened. The collusion, the conspiring, all of that happened with the Democrat Party, with Hillary Clinton, the DNC, Fusion GPS, and the wife of Bruce Ohr, a DOJ official whose wife worked at Fusion GPS for the express purpose of digging up dirt on Trump. Bruce Ohr even met with author of the fake dossier, Christopher Steele and found he was politically biased against Trump.
This is entirely a Democrat-run operation! Trump was nowhere near it. The special counsel is looking for evidence of Trump conspiring with Russia; there is none. Nobody has found any. The establishment sewer has had the lid blown off of it with the Nunes memo made public.
Shut Mueller Down
The entire Mueller investigation began under false pretenses and should immediately be shut down by Sessions if he ever wakes up. What a waste of taxpayer dollars. FBI surveillance was obtained through false documentation to the FISA court, documentation made up by Christopher Steele and paid for by Hillary Clinton’s campaign.
Both Paul Manafort and Michael Flynn were targeted by political enemies of the Trump administration. Manafort has a lawsuit against the Mueller team charging Rosenstein did not limit the scope of the investigation, and the charges against him should be dismissed as they do not relate to his time as Trump campaign manager. Manafort is right!
General Mike Flynn is a brilliant intelligence operator and a patriot. The saga of the political assassination of General Flynn is full of lessons about the power of the Obama deep state (this link is important) that Flynn was a part of as Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, but of which he ultimately became a vociferous critic.
As for General Flynn, there is no reason for a pardon because Flynn is innocent of any wrongdoing. Mike Flynn was set up by a hostile McCabe and company, remember Flynn’s support for Robyn Gritz, and McCabe’s statement, “F*** Flynn, and then F*** Trump.”
The original plea judge for Flynn was none other than Obama appointed Contreras, the FISA approval judge. Coincidence? Doubtful. Someone realized they were pushing the envelope and replaced him. But why was he allowed to hear the case to begin with, and we need to know who removed him. Court spokeswoman Lisa Klem did not say why Contreras was recused, and added that the case was randomly reassigned. Mueller has now delayed the Flynn sentencing until May.
Chris Farrell of Judicial Watch appeared on Lou Dobb’s show and stated that FBI Directors had lied on their FD-302 interrogation documents, both of which were used against Flynn and Manafort. Now Inspector General Horowitz is saying the same thing.
The federal government should drop the Flynn case altogether. The General may have an unprecedented lawsuit against the FBI and DOJ officials who participated in his conviction if they broke the law knowingly, which is what it looks like.
The Nunes Memo is just the tip of the iceberg, there’s much more to come.
