Trump's Shot Heard Round the Civil-Service World

Calls for agency authority to 'remove federal employees who undermine the public trust'


By Greg Corombos

Pencil pushers. Desk jockeys. There are a lot of names for the bureaucrats who fill the offices of the federal government.

President Trump says they, and their work, need to be examined more closely.

He fired a major shot in the effort to enact civil service reform during his State of the Union address, creating what one leading workforce expert hopes will be an effort to root out the “intransigence and incompetence” from the federal workforce.

In his speech, Trump hailed the passage of legislation in 2017 that gave more authority for Veterans Affairs Secretary Dr. David Shulkin to fire people failing to perform at levels needed to provide veterans the service they deserve. He then said that flexibility should be available to all cabinet secretaries.

“Tonight, I call on Congress to empower every cabinet secretary with the authority to reward good workers and to remove federal employees who undermine the public trust or fail the American people,” said Trump.

American Legislative Exchange Council Education and Workforce Development Task Force Director Inez Stepman studies civil service issues and detailed the problem in a Federalist column Wednesday.

Stepman says getting rid of most incompetent and uncooperative federal workers is exceedingly difficult.

“I think the average American has very little idea how difficult it actually is to fire a federal worker. The process is usually over 300 days long. It includes two appeals that are conducted at the same standard of proof as a civil trial.

“That means there is a discovery period. You can call witnesses. You can call Bob from across the cubicle and say, ‘Well, Bob says I’m doing a great job. Why are you firing me?'” said Stepman.

She says the recent false alert for a missile attack in Hawaii is a perfect example of the problem.

Video: Nunes Addresses the Release of the Memo and the Fallout

Also makes it clear that this was phase one on just FISA abuse. State Deptartment is next.


Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) revealed Friday that Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee would examine other agencies, including the State Department, after releasing a controversial memo alleging surveillance abuses.

Speaking on Fox News just hours after Republicans on the committee released a memo alleging surveillance abuses by the FBI and Department of Justice (DOJ), Nunes said the panel was moving to “phase two” of its investigation.

“We are in the middle of what I call phase two of our investigation, which involves other departments, specifically the State Department and some of the involvement that they had in this,” Nunes said.

“That investigation is ongoing and we continue work towards finding answers and asking the right questions to try to get to the bottom of what exactly the State Department was up to in terms of this Russia investigation.”

Rep. Paul Gosar Calls For 'Criminal Prosecution' of Former Top FBI, DOJ Officials After Release of Nunes Memo


by Mandy Mayfield
WashingtonExaminer.com

Rep. Paul Gosar, R-Ariz., called for the criminal prosecution of multiple former FBI and Justice Department officials after the release Friday of the Republican memo about surveillance of a Trump campaign adviser.

Gosar said in a statement posted to Twitter Friday that he will be co-authoring a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions seeking the "criminal prosecution" of former FBI Director James Comey, former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe, former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein for their "illegal misconduct and abuse of FISA."

"I will be leading a letter to the Attorney General seeking criminal prosecution against these traitors to our nation," Gosar said in a statement.

The House Intelligence Committee released the memo on Friday after voting to declassify it. President Trump approved the release, which he had the power to block.

The memo was compiled by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., and other Republican lawmakers, and explains how FBI and DOJ officials depended on information from a dossier compiled by former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele to obtain and renew a warrant to surveil former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.

Gosar said in a statement to the Washington Examiner that the former director and deputy FBI director, and two former deputy attorneys general "have made a mockery of the FBI."

"This is precisely why I voted no on the FISA Reauthorization," Gosar added.

Congressional Republicans are saying the memo proves the anti-Trump bias of the Justice Department during their investigation into Russian election meddling. Democrats say the memo is missing important context, gets certain details wrong and otherwise paints a misleading picture of the investigation.

"Congressman Gosar applauds President Trump's decision to declassify the memo, and he demands swift justice," Faith Vander Voort, spokeswoman for Gosar told the Washington Examiner.

House Intelligence Memo Released: What It Says


Editor's Note:  HERE WE GO!! NO REDACTIONS.  FISA Memo Confirms Surveillance of Trump Campaign Was Based on Dodgy Steele Dossier and FBI/DOJ Officials withheld their knowledge of the political sources and funding behind the dossier from the FISA Court - ON THREE SEPARATE OCCASIONS.  FBI Officials Knew Political Origins of Dossier, But Used It Anyway.

The whole cooked-up probe is the fruit of a poisoned tree, which in legal terms means everything that follows from it is completely inadmissible in court. Not that anything has ever been forthcoming to take to court.  The whole thing was cooked up to keep a cloud over the Presidency until the 2018 midterms and hope Meuller could find something, somewhere to justify removing Trump from office. Well over a year and untold $MILLIONS wasted on this fraud on the American People to commit treason, to remove a duly elected president.

The House Intelligence Committee has released its controversial memo outlining alleged abuses of secret surveillance by the FBI and Justice Department in the Trump-Russia investigation. Here are some key points:

  • The Steele dossier formed an essential part of the initial and all three renewal FISA applications against Carter Page.
  • Andrew McCabe confirmed that no FISA warrant would have been sought from the FISA Court without the Steele dossier information.
  • The four FISA surveillance applications were signed by, in various combinations, James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Sally Yates, Dana Boente, and Rod Rosenstein.
  • The FBI authorized payments to Steele for work on the dossier. The FBI terminated its agreement with Steele in late October when it learned, by reading an article in Mother Jones, that Steele was talking to the media.
  • The political origins of the Steele dossier were known to senior DOJ and FBI officials, but excluded from the FISA applications.
  • DOJ official Bruce Ohr met with Steele beginning in the summer of 2016 and relayed to DOJ information about Steele's bias. Steele told Ohr that he, Steele, was desperate that Donald Trump not get elected president and was passionate about him not becoming president.

The FBI and Justice Department mounted a monthslong effort to keep the information outlined in the memo out of the House Intelligence Committee's hands. Only the threat of contempt charges and other forms of pressure forced the FBI and Justice to give up the material.

Once Intelligence Committee leaders and staff compiled some of that information into the memo, the FBI and Justice Department, supported by Capitol Hill Democrats, mounted a ferocious campaign of opposition, saying release of the memo would endanger national security and the rule of law.

But Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes never wavered in his determination to make the information available to the public. President Trump agreed, and, as required by House rules, gave his approval for release.

Finally, the memo released today does not represent the sum total of what House investigators have learned in their review of the FBI and Justice Department Trump-Russia investigation. That means the fight over the memo could be replayed in the future when the Intelligence Committee decides to release more information.

Fusion GPS and the ‘Insurance Policy’ to Prevent Trump From Becoming President

A graphic showing the web of connections related to the Trump dossier


By Jasper Fakkert and Joshua Philipp
TheEpochTimes.com

How did a piece of opposition research, described by former FBI Director James Comey as both “salacious and unverified,” become the driving force behind the allegations that Trump colluded with Russian authorities?

Research conducted by The Epoch Times, using public sources, shows a web of connections related to the dossier reaching the highest levels of the FBI, CIA, and the Obama administration.

Paid for by the Clinton Campaign and the DNC, and produced by Fusion GPS—whose other clients include the Russian government—the dossier appears to have been the basis for the FBI’s investigation into Donald Trump.

 

 

The FBI used the dossier, in part, to obtain a FISA warrant to spy on Trump’s team, according to national security reporter Sarah Carter. Two of President Barack Obama’s top officials also surveilled the communications of Trump’s team, both before and after the elections.

The unverified allegations in the dossier were also actively spread to media organizations, both by Fusion GPS as well as other key players involved, to cast a shadow over Trump’s run for president and his presidency.

Text messages obtained by the Department of Justice (DOJ) inspector general show high ranking FBI officials discussing an “insurance policy” to prevent Trump from becoming president.

The connections presented raise many questions, including the following: Why was the FBI so willing to accept the allegations made by Fusion GPS? And what did Obama obtain in monitoring the communications of Trump, the opponent of the candidate he supported?

These matters are currently under investigation by the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, the DOJ inspector general, and possibly special counsel Robert Mueller.

‘Worse Than Watergate’: ‘Shocking’ House Intel Memo Allegedly Reveals FISA Abuse by Senior DOJ and FBI Officials


Members of the House on Thursday said they viewed a “shocking” classified memo allegedly detailing abuse of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) by senior Justice Department and Federal Bureau of Investigations officials in relation to the investigation of the Trump campaign and called for it to be declassified and available to the public immediately.

 

 

By Kristina Wong
Breitbart.com

“It’s troubling. It is shocking,” Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) told Fox News. “Part of me wishes that I didn’t read it because I don’t want to believe that those kinds of things could be happening in this country that I call home and love so much.”

“The facts contained in this memo are jaw-dropping and demand full transparency. There is no higher priority than the release of this information to preserve our democracy,” said Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), a member of the Judiciary Committee, which oversees the DOJ and the FBI.

Another Judiciary Committee member, Rep. Steve King (R-IA), called what he saw in the memo “sickening” and said it was “worse than Watergate.”

Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-FL), another Judiciary Committee member,  called the memo “deeply troubling” and said it raises questions about the “Obama DOJ and Comey FBI.”

“The classified report compiled by House Intelligence is deeply troubling and raises serious questions about the upper echelon of the Obama DOJ and Comey FBI as it relates to the so-called collusion investigation,” he tweeted.

“You think about, ‘is this happening in America or is this the KGB?’ That’s how alarming it is,” Rep. Scott Perry (R-PA) told Fox News.

“It is so alarming the American people have to see this,” Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), a senior member of the Judiciary Committee, also said to network.

The viewing of the memo came after all Republican members of the House intelligence committee, whose investigators compiled the classified memo, voted Thursday to make it available to all House members. Every Democrat on the committee voted against it.

According to Gaetz, the memo’s contents could lead to the firing — and perhaps even jailing — of senior DOJ and FBI officials.

“I think that this will not end just with firings. I believe there are people who will go to jail,” he said on Fox News’ Hannity.

He said what he saw in the memo also explains why Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and Judiciary Subcommittee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC) recently referred the Fusion GPS dossier author Christopher Steele for a criminal investigation.

“I think there will be criminal implications here,” Gaetz added.

The memo also reportedly contains information about the dossier put together by Fusion GPS that alleged Trump and members of his team colluded with Russians in the 2016 election, according to a report by investigative journalist Sara Carter.

It was revealed in October that the dossier was funded by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee. Despite being a political document, the dossier was reportedly part of the evidence FBI officials used to apply for and obtain a warrant through a secret FISA court to spy on Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.

Page told Breitbart News in a statement: “After over a year of inciting discord and threats of violence across America, it’s encouraging that the individuals in Washington responsible for these efforts to undermine our great democracy may be held accountable soon.”

Breitbart News reported on March 3, 2017, that the Obama administration took steps to undermine Trump’s presidential campaign using “police state” tactics, including spying on the Trump campaign. That report is widely believed to have led to President Trump’s tweet that later accused the Obama administration of wiretapping Trump Tower.

Members of the public and Congress are now calling for the document to be declassified and released to the public.

DeSantis said the House intelligence committee, pursuant to House rules, should vote to make the report publicly available as soon as possible.

“While the report is classified as Top Secret, I believe the select committee should, pursuant to House rules, vote to make the report publicly available as soon as possible. This is a matter of national significance and the American people deserve the truth,” he said.

“Rule X of the House Rules allows the select committee to publicly disclose any information in its possession after a determination by the select committee that the public interest would be served by such disclosure.”

According to House Rules, if the House intelligence committee votes to make the report public, President Trump would have five days to issue an objection. If he objected, it would take a vote on the House floor.

Democrats’ Dossier Team Was Hired By The Kremlin’s Sanctions-Busting Russian Lawyer PRIOR To Her Luring Trump Advisers

PART 2

It sometimes happens during hunting season that the quarry suddenly pops its head out of hole, like a whack-a-mole, then finds itself stunned at spotting your red jacket. The alarmed badger or a quick-witted fox ducks back down pronto to dodge the shot, and the hunter's lucky not to blow your own foot off with the shotgun. Investigative journalists have similar unexpected jolts, as happened Sunday afternoon when I was about to pen the first line of this essay which was supposed to start with an ode to women’s softball.
 
 Distracted by that false alarm over an ICBM homing in for a second Pearl Harbor attack, I noticed another intriguing news item: “Moby says CIA agents asked him to spread the word about Trump and Russia”. There you have it in a nutshell, the thesis that I’ve been pursuing for more than a year that the dossier was part of a CIA-White House operation.
 
 Moby is the nickname of a DJ, Richard Melville Hall, who has an online following of millions of ravers and pogo punks in mosh-pits around the world, the same sort of young and restless rebels who flocked to Soros-funded protests against the Trump inauguration.
 
 “They said, like, look you have more of a social media following than any of us do, so can you please post some of these things, just in a way, sort of to put it out there?”
 
 Say, bro’, those friends of yours are violating congressional rules on the strict separation of foreign intelligence and domestic affairs. Like, psst . . . we got a job for you to do at a book depository in Dallas. That’s sort of, uh illegal, Moby, especially if you get caught or let it slip like you just did, because now a DA can squeeze the identities of those CIA agents out of you with a court order. Squeeze, like, you’re toothpaste, dude.
 
 The white DJ, who is distantly related to Herman Melville, the author of Moby Dick, said that back in January 2017: “Active and former CIA agents were truly concerned about Trump’s collusion with Russia. This is the Manchurian Candidate.”  
 
 Those CIA creeps truly got imagination, since Trump never set foot inside a brainwashing camp in North Korea. Hey, come to think of it, wasn’t it the CIA that created Manchurian Candidates, like inside Ewen Cameron’s psychiatric ward? Jason Bourne, MK-ULTRA. Thanks for the tip-off about your CIA pals creeping around like succubi in short skirts in a dark disco.
 
 After expressing these harsh warnings, I should apologize to you, great white whale of vegan animal-rights, for that comparison to a wide-eyed badger. To tell the truth I never liked killing animals, not after doing the dirty work at a testing lab and sending thousands of pathetic chickens to be plucked and boiled at a Campbell’s Soup factory.
 
 Hunting was just an excuse to walk around inside private forestland, and the only gunshots fired were to scare off a few noisy crows disturbing the peace and quiet. Those were just a nature walk in the woods without harming a single feather on a quail, Moby, so don’t go reporting me as a gun-toting terrorist to your CIA handlers. Relax, have a carrot.
 
 Now that they know you squawked, next time you see them just smile and nod while they palm off their Afghan heroin to the drugged-out teens and zonked bankers on the dance floor. Since you’ve spilled the beans, you’d better pray the Agency boys don’t do another Bataclan or an Orlando Pulse like at one of your performances.

 
Clintons as partners of the Kremlin
 
 The most striking aspect of the Senate Judiciary inquiry of witness Glenn Simpson, boss of the Fusion GPS front-man who supposedly produced and distributed the Trump-Russia Dosser, is how Sen. Dianne Fienstein’s legal counsel inexplicably avoided any significant disclosures from him. With every opportunity to further discredit the Trump team, the Democratic counsel Heather Sawyer eschewed serious probing of Simpson over Russiagate and relented whenever he shied away from answering. If this had been a court trial of a serial killer, he would have been home for dinner with all night to reload.
 
 Her turn to interview the witness followed a superb display of incisive questioning from Grassley legal staffer Patrick Davis, who got Simpson to disclose his paid work against the 2012 Magnitsky Act trade sanctions for Russian lawyer Natalia Veselitskaya, prior to and after her notorious meeting at Trump Tower with Don Jr., Paul Manafort and Jared Kushner.
 
 Despite the fact that a Senate inquiry lacks powers of prosecution, Davis and his team sweated out Simpson to admit that he acted as a bloodhound, tactician and publicist for Kremlin-linked interests against the Magnitsky Act sanctions and its top proponent William Browder, CEO of Hermitage Capital, the employer of auditor Sergei Magnitsky, who died in a Moscow prison.
 
 Displaying passive-aggressive, even sadistic pleasure in catching up with his prey, Simpson boasted about how he tracked down Browder to an unannounced appearance at the Aspen Institute and had two of his employees serve him subpoenas, only to watch Browder toss the papers on the parking lot and drive away in fury. (p.40-43) The emotional confrontation with Browder revealed a streak of fanaticism in Simpson’s pursuit of a termination to sanctions on Russia. This is especially disturbing when considering that his ethically challenged client Prevezon owner Denis Katsyv had to pay $5.9 million in fines to the U.S. Treasury in May 2017 for money-laundering funds gained through tax evasion in Russia.

Democrats’ Dossier Team Was Hired By The Kremlin’s Sanctions-Busting Russian Lawyer PRIOR To Her Luring Trump Advisers

PART 1



By Yoichi Shimatsu - Part 1 Of A Series
Rense.com


Last things first, meaning that this article must lead off with a look at why Sen. Dianne Feinstein released, without authorization, an online file of the transcript from the Senate Judiciary closed-door hearing of August 22 on Fusion GPS, the research team that produced the Trump-Russia Dossier. This first installment analyzing the Senate Judiciary transcript, augmented with background information, is the opener for the can of worms involving Fusion GPS in Russian intrigue. Hold your breath!

 A detailed look at the many themes probed by the Senate legal counsels will continue in upcoming articles in this series, including the rogues’ gallery of suspect Russian businessmen influencing U.S. politics;  Russian mafia-linked players who have infiltrated the U.S. real estate market; the spy who loved money more than truth Christopher Steele; and miscellaneous curiosities, all with a cautionary warning: Don’t look for good guys here, because they’re all crooks.

 First off, examined here, is the transcript’s revelation of Fusion GPS’s very own Russiagate, which points to the strong possibility of the Russia dossier being, from its inception, a cynical forgery fabricated to implicate candidate Trump (in a clever ploy to extend Kremlin influence over the Democrats). An astonishing fact is that Fusion GPS was hired by Natalia Veselitskaya, the notorious journalist who lobbied for an end sanctions on Russia. The timing is significant because her contract with Fusion GSP began two months prior to her (in)famous meeting with Trump’s trio of advisers, which was the nub of the Russiagate scandal. That was a set-up from the start.

 From June until October 2017, Russian agent Veselitskaya’s relationship with Fusion GPS overlapped simultaneously with the Trump-Russia Dossier contract for the Hillary campaign, a situation much too close for comfort. The dossier contract, arranged just a month prior to the Democratic National Convention, indicates that Simpson was possibly involved in collusion with DOJ-FBI-CIA officials to exercise control over the nomination process of both parties, and only later to set up an entrapment scheme against candidate Trump to prevent populist control of the executive branch. When the mysterious deaths of Seth Rich and Shawn Lucas are taken into account, several lines of investigation point in the same direction toward gross interference by the Deep State in the democratic electoral process.

 The transcript of the judicial hearings is a complex text that requires close perceptive reading to distill not just the facts presented and various stratagems by Glenn Simpson and his lawyers to avoid self-incriminating disclosures, but more importantly key missing pieces in the Trump-Russia Dossier puzzle that are not mentioned, including who exactly negotiated the Hillary campaign’s contract with Fusion GPS, now that Donna Brazile has denied any DNC involvement. What tantalizing information was on offer to seal the Fusion GPS deal with the Dems, along with how much was paid by Hillary campaign and who signed the check for Fusion GPS?

Upon discovery of these still-hidden residuals, arrest warrants can be issued since libelous forgery with an intent to blackmail or harm a presidential candidate is a felony with a mandatory prison sentence. In this particular case, the involvement of a known Kremlin agent means the second count is treason. Sorry, Mr. Bannon, it's not Donny who's implicated. The treason belongs to Glenn Simpson and some yet-to be identified individuals in the Hillary Clinton campaign.
 

 Pressure Cooker for a Head Cold

 In mid-January, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-California) gave two different accounts for why she released without authorization the transcript of the Senate Judiciary closed-door hearing of August 22, 2017, which is  focused on Trump-Russia Dossier producer Glenn Simpson, founder of Fusion GPS. Feinstein’s jarringly different claims are:

 “I meant to tell him (Judiciary committee chair Charles Grassley), and I didn’t have a chance to tell him, and that concerns me, I just got pressured, and I didn’t do it, I didn’t do anything illegal. That transcript has become so abused that time has come for people to take a look at it.” (January 9, 2018)

 "The one regret I have is that I should have spoke with Senator Grassley before. And I don't make an excuse but I've had a bad cold and maybe that slowed down my mental facilities a little bit." (January 10)

 Her public release of the transcript more than five months after the Senate Judiciary hearing could not have been some impulsive act or precipitated by a lapse of judgment due to sinus congestion. Her headache indicated that Feinstein had come to the realization she had disclosed too much in her initial statement that “I just got pressured”. So let’s prescribe a capsule, a hot cup of lemon tea, a dose of truthfulness and a pair of handcuffs.

 To “get pressured”, passive tense, indicates that some other individual(s) actively urged Feinstein to release the transcript, which she must have passed around for review by her advisers without Senate committee approval. Her casual violation of national security precautions are reminiscent of Hillary Clinton’s carelessness with her private server, which is unacceptable for a former chair of Senate Intelligence and senior minority member in the Judiciary Committee. Oh, those dizzy dames!

 What is most intriguing in the Senate Judiciary transcript are the highly damaging revelations about the Democratic Party’s connections via Fusion GPS to the Russian lobbyist who (in)famously met with Don Trump Jr., Paul Manafort and Jared Kushner. Since the hidden Dem-Russia connection was related to the Kremlin campaign to end the Magnitsky Act sanctions, the Democrats’ Jewish donor base should be downright angry at the collusion between DNC-Hillary relationship with Glenn Simpson and his Fusion GPS crew, who were paid by Russian journalist Natalia Veselnitskaya on behalf of Prevezon Holdings, the money-laundering company implicated in the arrest and death in prison of crusading accountant Sergei Magnitsky.

 The timeline of events discussed in the transcript indicates something much more important and secretive was going on between the Dems and Fusion GPS than the pretext of opposition research on the then “unelectable” Trump, i.e. a secret pact toward an agreement with the Kremlin to end Magnitsky Act sanctions against Russia following Hillary Clinton’s anticipated electoral victory. Revival of trade with Russia would mean billions in profits for her corporate supporters.

 Before proceeding into the Feinstein intervention, one observation must be laid out: the Hillary-influenced State Department and the CIA were probably aboard the sanctions-killing deal, but the counterintelligence bureaucracy needed to be sucked into the secret agreement. That would explain the role of the Department of Justice officials, Bruce Ohr,  his superiors and wife Nellie, all of them being connected with Fusion GPS through the DOJ-friendly Main Justice blog run by Simpson’s wife Mary Jacoby, a blood relative of top executives at the Clintons’ longtime patrons with Stephens Inc.

Video: Dr. Mark Skidmore – $21 Trillion Missing from US Federal Budget


Dr. Mark Skidmore thinks the federal accounting of $21 trillion in missing money is crazy and far outside the realm of normal. So, is this a legitimate U.S. national security issue? Dr. Skidmore, who holds a PhD in Economics, says, “Yeah, and that is one of the reasons I decided to look at this. How can this be, and what does this mean? If trillions of dollars are flowing in and flowing out, it appears to be outside of our Constitution and outside of the rule of law. If that is the case, that really is troubling because it suggests that there is a layer of things happening that are outside the rule of law. I know, for example, that some activities, just for the sake of protection of the people involved in national security, have to be black budget. There is always stuff like that. Usually, it’s authorized spending, and some percentage is this black budget where only a small percentage of people and some in Congress know about it, but this is way outside of that. So, I am worried about it.”
