Congress Appoint Special Counsel To Investigate Obama’s Dodgy Russia Probe

Congress to appoint special counsel to investigate Obama illegal wiretapping of Trump reports: The investigators who leaked the information to Fox said the texts between Strzok and Page “strongly” suggest coordination between the White House, two independent intelligence agencies, and a Democratic Congressional leader. That would “contradict” the Obama administration’s claims of non-involvement.

The texts tell of former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe being concerned with “information control,” and suggest a plot to leak details of the FBI’s incipient investigation to both the White House and Reid. Brennan also became involved in agitating for an investigation, though his agency was supposed to be operationally separate from the FBI.

Page texted Strzok on Aug. 2, 2016, saying: “Make sure you can lawfully protect what you sign. Just thinking about congress, foia, etc. You probably know better than me.”

A text message from Strzok to Page on Aug. 3 described former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe as being concerned with “information control” related to the initial investigation into the Trump campaign. According to a report from the New York Times, Brennan was sent to Capitol Hill around the same time to brief members of Congress on the possibility of election interference.

Days later, on Aug. 8, 2016, Strzok texted Page: “Internal joint cyber cd intel piece for D, scenesetter for McDonough brief, Trainor [head of FBI cyber division] directed all cyber info be pulled. I’d let Bill and Jim hammer it out first, though it would be best for D to have it before the Wed WH session.”

In the texts, “D” referred to FBI Director James Comey, and and “McDonough” referred to Chief of Staff Denis McDonough, the GOP investigators said.

One of Fox’s sources said the information was “concerning” enough to justify launching an independent probe into the FBI’s role in launching the Trump investigation.

“We are not making conclusions. What we are saying is that the timeline is concerning enough to warrant the appointment of an independent investigator to look at whether or not the Obama White House was involved [in the Trump-Russia investigation],” a GOP congressional source told Fox News.

Naturally, coordination between political appointees at the White House and DOJ investigators would cast doubt on the entire Russia probe, Fox’s sources said.

The following day, Aug. 30, 2016, Strzok texted Page: “Here we go,” sending a link to the Times report titled, “Harry Reid Cites Evidence of Russian Tampering in U.S. Vote and seeks FBI inquiry.”

The texts also detail the Bureau and Brennan’s role in feeding information to Reid, which inspired him to write a letter to the FBI demanding an investigation be launched. That letter was later leaked to the press. The Reid letter, Fox said, provided political cover for the bureau when it tried to justify launching an investigation into Trump as early as July 2016.

In other words, the FBI was well-versed in how to strategically use “leaks” to manage information control and wash its hands over any potential collusion allegations… with the exception of course of the texts that reveal how the plot was hatched in the first place.

The question now is whether McCabe, who was fired two weeks ago, will be called in to testify on these stark allegations.

One thing is for certain: The texts provide the clearest sign yet into the Obama administration’s role in helping get the Russia probe off the ground in an attempt to roadblock Trump’s administration, all the while Obama chose to do nothing about reports of Russian attempts at election interference.

More political theatre unfolding ... more time wasted on investigations, where the evidence is already sufficient to indict and convict.

Let the evidence speak in open court... at trial.  We don't need a Special Counsel to confirm what we already know.  Stop the delay tactics, arrest those high-level political operatives who have avoid arrest and try those who believe they are above the law... able, so far, to break the law with impunity.

Exactly Frank...  the lawlessness in high places is beyond outrageous... it is a threat to our Constitution and National Security.  Individuals like AG Sessions need to be fired and investigated themselves... for their part in the OBSTRUCTION of Justice... for their failure to enforce the laws of the United States... their sworn duty.

It is amazing how the top tier of elected and career bureaucrats avoid accountability under the law... for their criminal conduct.  At one time such individuals were held to a HIGHER STANDARD and even the APPEARANCE of criminal conduct required they resign. Today, they openly violate the law... with impunity... and as Trump once BRAGGED: he could shoot someone while standing in the middle of Main Street USA and get away with it.

I am sick and tired of the corruption... the lies, the endless parade of promises to reform and the Establishments insulting attempts to obfuscate their failure to enforce the laws of the United States.  Our government has all the trappings of a criminal enterprise. Both Political Parties are operating as criminal cabals, looting our treasury and national resources, for their benefit. 

It is time to form a 3rd Party... the major parties are corrupt beyond reform.  Maybe Pres. Trump can see the need to break away from both Major Political Parties, to form a coalition party out of the existing 3rd parties and the few conservatives left in Congress and the State Legislatures?  Something must be done and done NOW... not latter.

Our Nation is in a Constitutional Crisis... This crisis is being deliberately orchestrated by our government leadership (State and Federal)... Apparently, these miscreants are attempting to move the public to riot and eventually invoke civil war, which would result in the suspension of the US Constitution and rule under Martial Law.  From there it is one easy step to impose a New World Order upon the American People.  America is indeed being fundamentally transformed... over the objection of the public.

Hi Frank and Ronald, we are back, and yep more political stuff, and nothing yet been done about their crimes...

That is funny man, good point....!

Excellent... as usual.  Thanks Frank.

Ignored By Media: Trump Is Using Obama’s National Emergency On Mexican Cartels To Build The Border Wall

President Trump declared a State of Emergency at the US southern border on Friday.

Declaring the immigration crisis a national emergency was overdue. Presidents have declared national emergencies for nearly 50 years.

Barack Obama declared 13 national emergencies, 11 of which continue to this day. The Obama emergencies included the Swine Flu, Flint water crisis and Iran.

And Obama declared the Mexican drug cartels a national emergency in 2011.

Congress believes President Trump has $21 billion in unobligated military construction funding money available for the border wall with Mexico.

Now this was mostly ignored by the liberal media. President Trump is using Barack Obama’s previous national emergency on Mexican drug cartels to get funding for the border wall.

Via Law and Crime:

As it turns out, back in 2011 then-President Barack Obama issued an executive order “blocking property of transnational criminal organizations organizations.” Obama cited his authority as granted through the Constitution to invoke the International Emergency Economic Powers Act, 50 U.S.C. 1701, and the National Emergencies Act, 50 U.S.C. 1601. The latter is the same legislation that Trump is citing to get funding for the wall to achieve his immigration reform goals. That executive order targeted a number of criminal organizations, including the Mexican Los Zetas cartel, an ally of the MS-13 gang President Trump has regularly called out as a danger to Americans.

“Drugs, gangs and people — an invasion,” Trump said on Friday. “We have an invasion coming into this country.”

Trump all but thanked his predecessor on Friday.

“We may be using one of the national emergencies that [Obama] signed having to do with criminal cartels… it’s a very good national emergency… we’re going to be using parts of it,” he said.
