GOP Lawmakers Shift Focus To DOJ Hack Bruce Ohr Over Previously UNDISCLOSED Contact With Fusion GPS


TheNationalSentinal.com

Closing In: A group of House Republicans has been working night and day to expose the Spygate scandal which continues to unfold before our very eyes.

They’ve been thwarted at every turn along the way, but for the past year-and-a-half, they have nevertheless continued to pursue every angle, every clue, and every fact in their attempt to run down all the details of what has become the biggest political scandal in our country’s history.

We already know many of the names involved — Peter Stzrok, James Comey, John Brennan, James Clapper, Sally Yates, Lisa Page, Andrew McCabe. But one person whose name that has only briefly been mentioned — Bruce Ohr — is about to receive a lot more attention from House Republicans

Writing in The Hill, John Solomon noted:

Hundreds of pages of previously unreported emails and memos provide the clearest evidence yet that a research firm, hired by Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) to find dirt on and defeat Donald Trump, worked early and often with the FBI, a Department of Justice (DOJ) official and the intelligence community during the 2016 presidential election and the early days of Trump’s presidency.

Fusion GPS’s work and its involvement with several FBI officials have been well reported.

But a close review of these new documents shows just how closely Associate Deputy Attorney General Bruce Ohr, who reported to Obama-era Deputy AG Sally Yates, maintained contact with Fusion — and, in particular, its primary source, former British spy Christopher Steele — before, during and after the election.

President Trump to Declassify June 2017 Carter Page FISA Renewal App Signed By Rod Rosenstein


Look for President Trump to declassify the June 2017 Carter Page FISA renewal this month, says investigative reporter, Paul Sperry.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and then-Deputy Director of the FBI Andrew McCabe both signed off on the June 2017 Carter Page FISA renewal–things could get interesting!

Thanks to Judicial Watch, the Carter Page FISA docs were released a couple weeks ago after the watchdog filed a FOIA lawsuit.

Although the documents were dishonestly and heavily redacted, they confirm the FBI and DOJ misled the FISA courts.

GOP lawmakers such as Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows (R-NC) and Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) called for the FISA docs to be declassified.

President Trump tweeted about the Carter Page FISA docs shortly after they were released to the public, slamming Crooked Hillary and called for the discredited Mueller witch hunt to be shut down.

The REAL REASON Why Peter Strzok Wanted To Keep Declassification Authority When He Moved To Mueller Team


There may be some confusion out there as to why Peter Strzok was so insistent on keeping the declassification authority from his previous office at the FBI when he joined the team for Robert Mueller’s special counsel investigation.

Judicial Watch has obtained emails between Strzok and his former chain of supervisors, in July 2017, discussing the authorities Strzok wanted to retain from his previous FBI position as Deputy Assistant Director of the Counterintelligence Division.  Strzok wanted to keep those authorities while he was working for Mueller.  The declassification authority isn’t the only interesting one, but it’s getting the most media attention.

Here is the passage from Strzok’s 13 July 2017 email:

Broadly, I need to be able to act at least in the capacity of my old CD DAD job – approve NSLs, conduct [redacted] declassify information, [redacted] agent travel, requisitions, etc.  Of those, the most problematic and one of the most essential is declassification authority. As I understand it, declassification authorities are billet-limited by Division and position, and they are provided by DOJ, not by the FBI. CD has three. I understand the need to fill my position within CD, but I’d respectfully request based on mission need that I keep the authorities from my old job.

Judge Orders Fusion GPS To Reveal Dossier Details In BuzzFeed Lawsuit


By Chuck Ross
TheDailyCaller.com

  • Judge orders Fusion GPS to disclose details of its dossier work.
  • The opposition firm has avoided deposition in a dossier-related lawsuit against BuzzFeed.
  • Lawyer for plaintiff says ruling “gave us everything that we had hoped for.”

Representatives of Fusion GPS must answer a broad array of questions about the opposition research firm’s role in creating, investigating and disseminating the infamous Steele dossier, a federal judge ruled.

U.S. District Court Judge Ursula Ungaro issued the decision Tuesday in a defamation lawsuit a Russian tech executive filed against BuzzFeed News, which published the dossier on Jan. 10, 2017.

The trial is scheduled to begin in Miami in November.

Ungaro ruled that attorneys for the executive, Aleksej Gubarev, can ask Fusion GPS representatives in a deposition about the firm’s dossier clients, its efforts to verify the dossier, its decision to hire dossier author Christopher Steele and its interactions with government officials and media outlets, including BuzzFeed.

Video: Rep. Bob Goodlate: Carter Page FISA Documents Show Serious FBI Problems


Editor's Note:  It is well known now that most redactions have nothing to do with protecting classified information and/or sources and methods.  In this case, redactions are being used to hide the truth and to provide the Democrats with the opportunity to "imply" (lie) that the redactions contain info that supports the issuance of the warrant to spy on Carter Page. 
~~~~~~~~~~~~


DOJ releases over 400 pages of FISA documents concerning former Trump campaign aide Carter Page; Rep. Bob Goodlatte shares insight on 'Sunday Morning Futures.' Maria Bartiromo.

"I have had the opportunity... to read these FISA warrant applications without all of those redactions... and I think that it is critically important that the American people have the opportunity to see most of the rest of those documents."

"Most of the information that is redacted in that report should easily be seen by the American people.  They can judge for themselves.  But I can tell you, it does not support the issuance of a warrant against Mr. Page."
