“Never can true reconcilement grow where wounds of deadly hate have pierced so deep.” ~ John Milton
Americans are currently living in some of the most interesting and dangerous times, that they may ever hope to never see again, especially once one views the machinations of the corrupt and criminally-minded high ranking government officials and intelligence and FBI agents, under the Obama administration, who weaponized the FBI and the Department of Justice. The entire system of FISA-702 surveillance and data collection was weaponized against Donald Trump’s presidential campaign and his subsequent presidency, in a manner that can only be described as illegal, unconstitutional and sedition, if not outright treason.
As reported by Sara Carter, investigative journalist and Fox News contributor, a four page classified House Intelligence Committee memo, spearheaded by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, was made available to all House members on Thursday January 18th. It outlined extensive abuse of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act that could lead to several senior officials in the FBI and the DOJ being fired, along with the end of Robert Mueller’s Special Counsel investigation of President Trump.
“There are four pages of a memorandum prepared by the intelligence committee that will shock the conscience of the country when it comes to the horrific abuses that occurred during the last administration and that I believe continue to pose a threat to Donald Trump’s presidency,” Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) stated on Fox News.
Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) said that he was sickened by the memo. He said the information it contained showed behavior by the Obama administration that was “worse than Watergate”.
Due to a ninety-nine page ruling from the FISA Court, declassified in May 2017, America was made aware of numerous unauthorized and improper FISA 702 (17) “About Queries”, that were made by people, such as Susan Rice, within the Obama administration. This information was revealed by National Security Agency Director Admiral Mike Rogers on October 26th 2016, after he started his own investigation in March 2016, subsequently initiating a full NSA compliance audit.
Widely reported and proven, America knows that Hillary Clinton and her campaign, facilitated by her lawyer Marc Elias, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz and other Democrats, hired and paid Glenn Simpson and Fusion GPS for negative information on Donald Trump. Their agreement led to Christopher Steele, former MI6 British intelligence agent, receiving the subcontract and the compilation of the largely false and unverified thirty-five page “Steele Dossier”.
Until Admiral Rogers blew the whistle, the FBI had been giving Fusion GPS and CrowdStrike access to the FISA database. They halted access on April 18th 2016, once they learned of Rogers’ investigation, and the very next day, Mary Jacoby, Glenn Simpson’s wife, went to the White House.
One must also note that Bruce Ohr, who was recently removed from his position as associate Deputy General at the Justice Department, met with Christopher Steele during the 2016 campaign. Shortly after the election, Steele also met with Glenn Simpson, the founder of Fusion GPS. And Bruce Ohr’s wife Nellie was working for Simpson at the time.
Nellie Ohr is a Stanford University Phd and a subject matter expert on Russia, speaks Russian and is well versed on CIA operations. Her skills include building counterintelligence frameworks to give the appearance of events, that never actually occurred.
Numerous Wall Street Journal and Fox News reports are now credible, in their assertions that the FBI illegally used false information in the Steele Dossier to obtain FISA warrants against President Trump and members of his campaign staff and cabinet, such as Michael Flynn and Carter Page. The FBI claimed Page, a Trump advisor, was a “Russian agent” and no source anywhere else made that claim, except for Christopher Steele.
Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) asked for a criminal investigation of Steele, on January 25th, for making “false statements”. He also called for the release of the memo.
On January 12th, Sean Hannity (FoxNews) stated: “I spoke to three people, two congressional members, one person in the DOJ. They all confirmed at different levels that 100 percent the dossier was used … [ to get] the FISA warrant.”
This is extremely important considering that FBI agent Peter Strzok, who was in regular contact with the CIA and handled counterintelligence operations, was a source for the Steele Dossier, as was CIA Director John Brennan. They, along with many others such as Andrew McCabe — Hillary Clinton apparatchik, Susan Rice and Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, fed the false narrative of President Trump’s so-called “collusion” with Russia.
Please recall that Susan Rice illegally unmasked General Michael Flynn, which set in motion events leading to his resignation as President Trump’s Director of National Intelligence. Her information came through the illegally obtained FISA warrant, which makes Rep. Paul Gosar’s statement ever more significant, as he recently exclaimed: “If you don’t think the unmasking has something to do with the weaponization of our Department of Justice and our intelligence services, think again.
In addition, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Session’s Justice Department investigation, of this criminal FISA abuse, uncovered texts between former counterintelligence expert Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, his mistress and FBI attorney, in which they spoke of an “insurance policy” and a seeming plot to undermine President Trump’s administration. Both of them served briefly on Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference; but Strzok also led the FBI probe into Hillary Clinton’s private email server and he was involved in opening the 2016 investigation into election meddling. And the day after the election, one finds a text between Strzok and Page saying, “Perhaps this is the first meeting of the secret society”
Looking at the texts, at one point, Strzok writes Page: “I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy’s [Andrew McCabe?] office that there is no way he gets elected. But I’m afraid we can’t take that risk. It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re forty.”
The FBI’s investigation into Russian government interference in the election began in July 2016, just weeks before Strzok’s text. This looks increasingly like a plan was already in place to sink the Trump presidency, if he won, even though they thought any Trump victory would be unlikely. This was their motivation and the smoking gun that illustrates FBI corruption and bias against President Trump.
More importantly, despite FBI Counterintelligence Director Bill Priestap’s “suggestion” not to notify Congress, shouldn’t FBI Director James Comey have told Congressional oversight that he was investigating presidential candidate Trump, as protocol dictates? Or, was Comey too hiding the fact that the FBI was running a counterintelligence operation against a presidential candidate, president – elect Donald Trump and then a sitting President of the United States Donald Trump?
The known facts alone speak of such egregious crimes against America and the people’s sacred trust, that they warrant lengthy prison sentences and even executions, depending on one’s degree of complicity. All of these conspirators must be identified and punished accordingly, made to face a day of reckoning, and this does not end well for America until this is done.
Representative Matt Gaetz correctly observed: “I believe there are people who will go to jail. You don’t get to try to undermine our country, undermine our elections, and then simply get fired.”
In 1961, President Kennedy stated: “The very word ‘secrecy’ is repugnant in a free and open society; and we are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths and to secret proceedings … Even today, there is little value in insuring the survival of our nation if our traditions do not survive with it.”
Dangerous times demand serious answers for America, which is under assault by domestic enemies. Evil men and women, aspiring dictators and apparatchiks of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, without any respect for our U.S. Constitution and America’s founding principles, have actively sought to usurp the will of the American people and a duly elected U.S. president. Their intents and purposes could not have been executed without Obama’s imprimatur and specific orders, as they cast the die and betrayed America, and, down to the last conspirator, they must be ruthlessly exposed, by releasing the memo, if we are to save our Republic.
