Mueller Report Suppressed Evidence Exonerating Trump.


By Thomas Lifson

Unfortunately, the shocking revelation that the Mueller Report misled the American people by omitting important evidence exonerating the Trump campaign of collusion with Russia will go mostly unnoticed with everyone focused on the pandemic. John Solomon, writing on his new site, Just The News, has another scoop that reveals that the translator present at the Trump Tower meeting with Russians who offered dirt on the Hillary campaign --  the very centerpiece of allegations of collusion – provided a lot of exculpatory information that was recorded in FBI 302 memoranda, but which was excluded by the Mueller Report. However, one relatively minor tidbit that reflected unfavorably on the meeting was included.

This should be shocking because Mueller and his team, led by Andrew Weissman, were hred to provide the truth, a complete picture. They were not hired to damage Trump as much as possible, but that appears to be what they were actually doing. I am no expert on legal ethics, but this strikes me as malfeasance.

Two Sets of Rules: DIA Employee Charged With Leaking While FBI Leakers Walk Away


By Sara Carter

The Justice Department announced Thursday that an employee of the DIA pleaded guilty to leaking classified national defense information to two journalists in 2018 and 2019, which could land him in prison for a maximum of ten years.

Leaking classified information is, of course, against the law – that is, unless you are former FBI Director James Comey or former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe. There are others too, for example a former deputy assistant director of the FBI’s international operations division, who also was called out by the DOJ’s Inspector General for allegedly leaking to reporters and accepting gifts from the media, as reported in The Washington Examiner.

Further, FBI officials altered Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrant applications to spy on Carter Page, a U.S. citizen, who happened to be a volunteer for President Donald Trump’s campaign. Now, years later, after multiple investigations it was discovered that those same FBI officials, Comey and McCabe, among others, signed off on the phony warrants.

Still, senior government officials in the FBI – as well as other agencies – have escaped prosecution for leaking classified information and or lying under oath. Others have not been so lucky.

Defense Intelligence Agency employee Henry Kyle Frese is one of the unlucky leakers. Frese, a 31-year-old resident of Alexandria, Virginia, is expected to be sentenced on June 18.

Frese “was entrusted with Top Secret information related to the national defense of our country. Frese violated that trust, the oath he swore to uphold, and engaged in felonious conduct at the expense of our country. This case should serve as a clear reminder to all of those similarly entrusted with National Defense Information that unilaterally disclosing such information for personal gain, or that of others, is not selfless or heroic, it is criminal,” ” said G. Zachary Terwilliger, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia.

Robert Wells, Acting Assistant Director of the FBI’s Counterintelligence Division said “Frese violated his sworn oath to protect the American people and uphold the Constitution of the United States by using his access to the United States’ most sensitive information and steal state secrets for nothing more than personal gain. The men and women of the FBI who investigated this case swore the same oath but unlike Mr. Frese, they chose to uphold it. I am proud of the work they did to hold Mr. Frese accountable for his actions.”

There is no argument that Frese should pay the price for leaking classified national security information to the press but what does it say when the DOJ refuses to prosecute former senior FBI officials, who were referred for prosecution on similar grounds. What does it say when leadership within the FBI, like Comey, sets a precedent that leaking for personal convictions won’t land you in prison. Couldn’t Frese argue that same point?

Over the past three years it appears there is one set of rules for those with friends in high places and another set of rules for those without. Last year, nearly half a dozen federal employees with the “FBI, DEA, a U.S. attorney and U.S. marshal officials were allowed to retire, do volunteer work, or keep their jobs as they escaped criminal charges that everyday Americans probably would not,” as previously reported at The Hill.

Assistant Attorney General for National Security John C. Demers said Thursday that “Frese violated the trust placed in him by the American people when he disclosed sensitive national security information for personal gain.”

Isn’t that what former FBI Director Comey did when he leaked his memos to his lawyers – actually his friends – to turn over to the New York Times with the sole purpose of getting the DOJ to appoint a Special Counsel to investigate President Donald Trump. The information, however, regarding Trump was all based on disinformation that the FBI, led by Comey, knew had never been verified.

Horowitz’s report on Comey was scathing and he referred the former director of the bureau to the DOJ for criminal prosecution, however, the Justice Department declined prosecution.

Remember here’s what Horowitz said in his report on Comey: “Former Director Comey failed to live up to this responsibility. By not safeguarding sensitive information obtained during the course of his FBI employment, and by using it to create public pressure for official action, Comey set a dangerous example for the over 35,000 current FBI employees—and the many thousands more former FBI employees—who similarly have access to or knowledge of non-public information.”

What about McCabe, and the other FBI officials called out in Horowitz’s reports, who were referred to the DOJ.

Well, in the case of McCabe, the DOJ also declined prosecution.

Horowitz referred McCabe in 2018 and wrote another damning report stating that the former deputy director of the bureau, who authorized the probe into President Trump, had lied under oath to investigators three times and another time when he was not under oath. McCabe also leaked information to regarding the FBI’s investigation into Hillary Clinton to the Wall Street Journal. But nothing happened.

In fact, he was given his letter of freedom from the DOJ last week, despite lying and leaking. Shouldn’t senior level officials like McCabe and Comey be held to higher standards?

What is the public supposed to take away from our system of justice if it is so one-sided and what does this mean when we entrust our institutions to be fair and non-partisan but then find out is everything but fair or non-partisan.

Timothy R. Slater, Assistant Director in Charge of the FBI’s Washington Field Office, said Thursday that Frese’s “disseminating ‘classified information he had pledged to protect” puts our  “national defense equities in danger.”

“The US Government and the American public depend on trusted government employees to keep such information out of the hands of our adversaries, who could use it to cause us harm,” said Slater. “The FBI’s counterintelligence mission is to protect our country’s information and secrets in order to safeguard our future; and the men and women of the FBI will continue to work hard to preserve that information.”

What about protecting the actual system of government and the constitution that is there to ensure that all Americans are treated equally under the law?

What about an FBI that was so out of control that its leadership felt they could lie, leak and spy on a duly elected president with impunity.

And why is no-one at the FBI, either current employees or former, being held to the same standards as Frese?

Video: Clinton Campaign was Giving Information to FBI – It Now Appears FBI was Giving Information to Clinton Campaign As Well


On Friday the FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe was exonerated after admitting to leaking classified information to the press and lying about it under oath several times.

On Friday we also learned the conduct at the Obama FBI under James Comey, Lisa Page, Peter Strzok, Andrew McCabe and others was much worse than we thought.

Last night author Lee Smith joined Jason Chaffetz on The Ingraham Angle on Friday night to discuss the latest developments in the Spygate scandal.

The more we learn – the more corruption is revealed at the top levels of the Obama intelligence community.

On Friday Eric Felton at Real Clear Investigations observed: “Buried in IG Report: How an FBI Team in Rome Gave Steele Highly Guarded Secrets.”

Felton points to a meeting in Rome a month before the 2016 election:

A month before the 2016 presidential election, the FBI met Christopher Steele in Rome and apparently unlawfully shared with the foreign opposition researcher some of the bureau’s most closely held secrets, according to unpublicized disclosures in the recent Justice Department Inspector General report on abuses of federal surveillance powers.

What’s more, Steele, the former British spy who compiled the “dossier” of conspiracy theories for the Hillary Clinton campaign, was promised $15,000 to attend the briefing by FBI agents eager to maintain his cooperation in their Trump-Russia collusion investigation codenamed Crossfire Hurricane.

That investigation was so closely guarded that only a handful of top officials and agents at the FBI were allowed to know about it.

The report by Inspector General Michael Horowitz details how a team of FBI agents in early October 2016 shared with Steele extensive classified materials, just weeks before the bureau cut off ties with him for leaking his own research to the media. The secrets included foreign intelligence information still considered so sensitive that the IG’s report refers to it even now only as coming from a “Friendly Foreign Government.” In fact, this is a reference to Australia. That country’s ambassador to Britain sent the United States a tip about loose talk by junior Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos. The FBI has described that as the predicate for its Trump-Russia investigation.

The IG report also discloses that FBI agents knew Steele worked for Glenn Simpson, whose opposition research firm Fusion GPS was paying Steele to dig up dirt on Trump for the Clinton campaign, and that Steele informed the FBI that the “candidate” – Clinton herself – knew about Steele’s work.

According to Lee Smith, the information sharing between the Clinton campaign and the DOJ-FBI was much more extensive than previously reported.

Federal Judge Postpones Michael Flynn’s Sentencing After Court Documents Showed How Gov’t ‘Lied’ and ‘Framed’ Him

Flynn may still be able to get justice in the courts after his railroading.


By Shane Trejo
BigLeaguePolitics.com

 

A federal judge has indefinitely postponed the sentencing for General Michael Flynn after he filed to remove his guilty plea and shocking court documents have been released showing how the federal government “lied” and “framed” him.

U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan ruled on Monday that Flynn’s sentencing hearing had been cancelled “until further order of the court.” It was previously scheduled to take place on Feb. 27.

Last month, Flynn’s attorney Sidney Powell filed a 27-page brief detailing the “egregious government misconduct” that took place in the case against Flynn, which was related to the dubious Russian collusion investigation. Powell is calling for dismissal of the case “in the interest of justice.” The decision by Sullivan shows that there may be serious merit to her explosive claims.

Powell produced evidence in the filing which showed that the feds lied to Flynn, misled him, “framed” him, obscured evidence that could have helped him build his case, and showed “contempt for the law at every turn” in how they went about their investigation and prosecution of the retired three-star Army general.

Flynn has also reconsidered his guilty plea, alleging that the plea deal that he signed onto was offered to him in bad faith.

“In truth, I never lied,” Flynn wrote in a his motion to withdraw his guilty plea that was filed last month, according to Fox News. “My guilty plea has rankled me throughout this process, and while I allowed myself to succumb to the threats from the government to save my family, I believe I was grossly misled about what really happened.”

Powell maintains that her client is completely innocent and intends to prove it in court. She wrote that the “IG Report is replete with exculpatory information that, had it been known to Mr. Flynn, he never would have pled guilty.”

Woolsey, Brennan, Clapper, And Comey Framed Trump and Flynn In Russian Collusion Hoax, Fearing Exposure Of THE HAMMER


By Mary Fanning and Alan Jones
TheAmericanReport.org

Former CIA Director James Woolsey, CIA Director John Brennan, and Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, worked in concert to frame President Donald Trump and President Trump’s National Security Advisor Lt. General Michael Flynn as “Russian agents.” 

General Flynn had become a “problem” for President Obama and for the Obama/Clinton Deep State intelligence apparatus.

General Flynn had not only begun advising the Trump Campaign in February 2016, but also had called out President Obama’s “willful” decision to arm ISIS.

On November 17, 2016, President-elect Trump named General Flynn to be White House national security adviser.

Timeline: First ‘Spygate’ Victim, Michael Flynn, Withdraws Guilty Plea for a ‘Crime’ He Never Mommitted

Flynn has been screwed over by a pathetically corrupt system in dire need of reforms


 

 

By Jon Dougherty
TheNationalSentinal.com

(TNS) In those chaotic first days of President Donald Trump’s administration, few Americans could have suspected or known that an operation to undermine him and his government was well underway.

Few could have suspected it because even though most seasoned politicos understood there was a ‘deep state,’ we couldn’t have imagined that it would be turned loose to depose a president.

When retired Army Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, the president’s first national security adviser, was accused of ‘lying’ to Vice President Mike Pence about contact he had with a Russian diplomat — contact that was very common, very normal, and very legal for transition team members, especially national security types — it sure seemed like Trump was either duped into hiring some shady types or legitimately was being played by a foreign power.

But by the time Flynn was charged for “lying” by special counsel Robert Mueller, there had already been trickles of information contained in sporadic reports that this was all a set-up: Some very high-ranking people were extremely upset that the ‘system’ couldn’t push one of their own, Hillary Clinton, over the finish line.

Seeing her beaten by a rogue, plain-spoken, direct, and unassuming candidate was too much for them to take. He had to go.
