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


Congress to appoint special counsel to investigate Obama illegal wiretapping of Trump

Zerohedge.com 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.

JUST IN->  Pelosi Announces House Resolution To Condemn Trump’s ‘Racist, Xenophobic Tweets’

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced Monday that Democrats will offer a resolution condemning President Donald Trump’s “racist” tweets against Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN).

Pelosi wrote a letter to House Democrats announcing that they will draft a resolution to condemn Trump’s “racist” tweets against progressive Democrats.

“This weekend, the President went beyond his own low standards using disgraceful language about Members of Congress,” Speaker Nancy Pelosi wrote.

“This morning, the President doubled down on his attacks on our four colleagues suggesting they apologize to him,” she added. “Let me be clear, our Caucus will continue to forcefully respond to these disgusting attacks.”

President Trump taunted the “squad” of far-left first-term progressive Democrats on Sunday, telling them to go back and fix the places they came from before telling the rest of the country what to do.

Trump’s tweets caused an uproar amongst the media and Hollywood celebrity classes, and now, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D–TX) hopes to capitalize on the president’s message by condemning them in Congress.

Lee said she will draft a resolution of condemnation.

“Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee will be drafting a Resolution of Condemnation for the words used by President Trump about four members of the House of Representatives over the weekend,” Jackson Lee’s office wrote:

So interesting to see “Progressive” Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly......

....it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!

President Trump’s remarks seemed particularly directed at Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), who is a former Somalian refugee.

Omar said Friday that the president “shouldn’t be in office” and told an audience of high school students that America was failing to uphold its promise to be a just society.

Rep. Omar said Trump was “stoking white nationalism” after he tweeted that some progressive congresswomen should “go back” to where they came from.

“You are stoking white nationalism because you are angry that people like us are serving in Congress and fighting against your hate-filled agenda,” Omar wrote:

Ilhan Omar  @IlhanMN


As Members of Congress, the only country we swear an oath to is the United States.

Which is why we are fighting to protect it from the worst, most corrupt and inept president we have ever seen. https://twitter.com/realdonaldtrump/status/1150381394234941448

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez claimed Monday that President Trump’s remarks serve as the “hallmark language of white supremacists.”

President Trump tweeted Monday that Democrats need to apologize for the “foul language” and “terrible things they have said”:

Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump

When will the Radical Left Congresswomen apologize to our Country, the people of Israel and even to the Office of the President, for the foul language they have used, and the terrible things they have said. So many people are angry at them & their horrible & disgusting actions!

Donald J. Trump  @realDonaldTrump

If Democrats want to unite around the foul language & racist hatred spewed from the mouths and actions of these very unpopular & unrepresentative Congresswomen, it will be interesting to see how it plays out. I can tell you that they have made Israel feel abandoned by the U.S.
