House Intel Committee Has Received All Docs Relating Dossier From DOJ, FBI

Published

on

(Via The Daily Caller)


House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence members gained access to all Department of Justice and FBI documents it possesses on the Trump dossier, The Daily Caller News Foundation has learned.

The committee was able to review Friday all FBI and DOJ documents on the Trump dossier, former MI-6 British agent Christopher Steele who authored the dossier, and Fusion GPS, the political opposition firm that hired Steele. DOJ also provided any Obama administration applications to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court based on the dossier, which could approve the surveillance of the Trump transition team or Trump associates, according to a source with direct knowledge of the case.

The information could serve as a key breakthrough in the committee’s investigation of Steele, Fusion GPS and the Russians who influenced the dossiers’ contents.

The only exception to the release was an FBI one FD-302 document that FBI Director Christopher Wray showed only to House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes. The document pertains to interviews of sources or suspects.

The committee also will have access to interview key Justice Department and FBI officials later in January.

Nunes announced on Jan. 3 that assistant Attorney General Rod Rosenstein approved committee access to documents pertaining to Steele, Fusion GPS and any applications for surveillance of Trump transition officials.

The committee’s document request was re-issued in a Jan. 4 letter from Nunes to Rosenstein.

The Intelligence Committee is seeking a clear understanding of how the FBI and Obama’s Justice Department officials used the dossier, which Steele compiled from unknown Russian sources. The dossier contained unverified and disparaging charges about Trumps activities in Russia.

Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign and the Democratic National Committee paid Fusion GPS for the dossier. The intelligence committee is also investigating whether the FBI or the Justice Department also agreed to pay Steele for his information, how they used the information and what steps, if any, they took to verify its content.

The documents additionally could provide insights into the Obama administration’s request to “unmask” or force the intelligence community to reveal the identity of Trump transition officials who were in contact with diplomats and foreign principals.

The Justice Department and the FBI have actively stonewalled Congress since 2017 over the Obama administration’s relationship to Fusion GPS, Steele and its use of the dossier to obtain a warrant before the Federal Intelligence Surveillance Court, which can authorize surveillance on foreign citizens.

Nunes expressed frustration with the lack of any response to the requests for documents in a December letter to Rosenstein. “Unfortunately, DOJ/FBI’s intransigence with respect to the August 24 subpoenas is part of a broader pattern of behavior that can no longer be tolerated,” he wrote.

“As a result of the numerous delays and discrepancies that have hampered the process of subpoena compliance, the committee no longer credits the representations made by DOJ and/or the FBI regarding these matters,” Nunes told Rosenstein.

The information also could be used for a criminal investigation of Steele.

Sen. Chuck Grassley, the chairman of the Senate Committee on the Judiciary, said he believed Steele lied to federal authorities about his contacts with reporters regarding information in the dossier, and he urged the department to investigate.

“I don’t take lightly making a referral for criminal investigation,” he said. “But, as I would with any credible evidence of a crime unearthed in the course of our investigations, I feel obliged to pass that information along to the Justice Department for appropriate review,” he said according to The New York Times.

TheDCNF contacted the White House for confirmation about the matter but has not yet received any response.

The reckoning of the fake news media.

Published

on

Karma, the sweet smell of poetic justice, the bully gets punched in the nose in the end! Fake news finally gets counted out and David to the Goliath is a teenager named Nicholas Sandmann the MAGA hat wearing unassuming media slayer.

Nicholas Sandmann and his legal team has announced a settlement with The Washington Post on their $250 Million dollar suit. This comes also on the heels of the multi-million dollar suit against CNN. They have stated 2 down and six to go.  Here is their list:

NBC, CBS, ABC, NYT, Gannett, Rolling Stones.

Many have tried to get the media companies to report fairly but even Billionaire hardball players like Donald Trump are impotent against the media smear machines. Politicians, celebrities and any adults in the public realm have diminished rights when it comes to defending their reputation against lies and attacks from media behemoths. This is a sad state of affairs and what’s lead  to the monumental rise of fake propaganda news.

In steps Nicholas Sandmann who was wrongly accused by many media outlets when the story broke of belligerent  teens harassing a Native American man beating a drum in a rally. There were duel rallies in the area. Since the teen was wearing a MAGA hat the news media or better yet fake news media went into overdrive bashing the kids. When the whole video was viewed any honest person could see the kids did nothing wrong in the whole confrontation. But this blatant truth means nothing to fake news. They hate Trump so lies are okay as long as it hurts their intended target. Nicholas Sandmann is a normal American well behaved teen. With him being a teen or minor the laws give him protections not afforded a public figure. So he could aggressively defend himself with a good legal team. Now truth and justice has a chance to rule and not the mob rule of the left. If this could happen more often we would have a more honest press. But we know they have financial donors and backers that pay them to spread these lies so we will have to see what is coming down the pike in hopes there will be more honesty in reporting. But don’t hold your breathe.

Should the media and politicians be held responsible for fraudulent hydroxychloroquine reports?

Published

on

Saying a drug that clearly works, doesn’t work is Trump Derangement Syndrome beyond comprehension.

The Lancet Study on Hydroxychloroquine was fraught with errors and incomplete data. It was thrown together to let the world know that hydroxychloroquine doesn’t work. Well that study was retracted. A Henry Ford Health System study found the drug helped patients with COVID-19. Just as the president was saying. Trump mentioned HCQ and the collective mainstream media went into overdrive to prove him wrong. And once again Trump accused of lie of the century turns out to be right. He was clearly right in the beginning. The media said the drug could cause harm if not used correctly. That could also be said about aspirin or any drug.

Taking this derangement one step further was governors making it hard to get HCQ and banning it in some places from use. Now we know in hindsight the drug works and these politicians and media companies as CNN are libel for deaths of Coronavirus patients that died when a life saving drug was readily available in stockpile. Also the governors sending the elderly with COVID-19 into nursing homes with the most vulnerable also caused many unnecessary  deaths. Weren’t we told we had to save our grandparents? If we loved them don’t visit them to be safe? So why would governors send COVID-19 patients to nursing homes when they (New York) mainly was provided thousands of empty hospital beds on the navy ship and the convention center?

I have been following these people long enough to know these things are not an accident. Germany and Israel sent the United States millions of tablets of HCQ. They were at the ready and cheap. It’s been used for malaria since the 1960’s so the side effects have been tested, it is safe. Boris Johnson, British Prime Minister was saved with HCQ. Thousands around the world have been saved with this drug. So we must ask the question when will the media and politicians be dragged into a court of law for their negligent reckless reporting?

Margaret Sanger, Planned Parenthood & The racists Democrats Part #3

Published

on

How can a party so entrenched in political correctness and against racism openly support Planned Parenthood founded by a raging racist?

Quotes of Margaret Sanger:

“The most merciful thing that a family does to one of it’s infant members is to kill it.”

“A free race cannot be born to slave mothers.”

“The most successful approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don’t want the word to get out that we want to exterminate the Negro population.”

“Birth control must lead ultimately to a cleaner race.” Remember when Joe Biden referred to Barack Obama as clean and articulate?

“….such a plan (The Negro Project) would reduce the birth rate among the diseased, the sickly, the poverty stricken and anti-social classes, elements unable to provide for themselves, and a burden of which we are all forced to carry.”

Sanger felt the Negro was genetically inferior. Sanger charmed the Black community’s most distinguished leaders into accepting her plan, which was designed to their own detriment. “Ironically abortion has done what the Klan could only dream of. Roughly 1/4 of the Black population is now missing.” Alveda King, niece to the Rev. Dr. martin Luther King. Almost 80% of all Planned Parenthood clinics are in minority neighborhoods. The most dangerous place for an African-American is in the womb.

This is the playbook of the Democrats, get the Black population to back something that is design to their detriment. Blacks have been so indoctrinated that they cannot see this. The left plays the emotional game of racism and stoking the flames of a race war to keep the black vote firmly in it’s pocket. Margaret Sanger persuaded the black community to feel good about killing it’s own future.

“I admire Margaret Sanger enormously….I am really in awe of her.” said, Hillary Clinton. Clinton was also a firm supporter and fan of the late Senator Robert Byrd of West Virginia, former Ku Klux Klan recruiter. How does the left get away with blaming everyone for every form of racism in our history then openly embrace known racists in public and no one bats an eye? Margaret Sanger was an advocate of Eugenics of building a pure race and that made her a favorite of the Nazis and the Ku Klux Klan. She gave many speeches to these groups on her philosophy and theory of a clean race. Planned Parenthood still bares the name of it’s racist founder and lauded by Blacks all over. They are running around in their pink pussy hats giving life to an organization that was made to bring death to their own people.

Please research Margaret Sanger and The Negro project.
