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.

ALERT --> Florida Democrats Urged Voters To Submit Absentee Ballots After Election Day Using Altered Forms


 Florida Democrats urged voters to submit absentee ballots after Election Day, using an official form that had been altered to make it look like they were doing so within the legal deadline, hoping a judge would later allow the votes.

That attempt to add Democratic votes, which critics say is possible election fraud, was reported Thursday morning by Ana Ceballos of the Naples Daily News, who notes the scheme has already been reported to federal prosecutors.

Ceballos reported:

A day after Florida’s election left top state races too close to call, a Democratic party leader directed staffers and volunteers to share altered election forms with voters to fix signature problems on absentee ballots after the state’s deadline.

The altered forms surfaced in Broward, Santa Rosa, Citrus and Okaloosa counties and were reported to federal prosecutors to review for possible election fraud as Florida counties complete a required recount in three top races.

But an email obtained by the USA TODAY NETWORK-Florida shows that Florida Democrats were organizing a broader statewide effort beyond those counties to give voters the altered forms to fix improper absentee ballots after the Nov. 5 deadline. Democratic party leaders provided staffers with copies of a form, known as a “cure affidavit,” that had been modified to include an inaccurate Nov. 8 deadline.

One Palm Beach Democrat said in an interview the idea was to have voters fix and submit as many absentee ballots as possible with the altered forms in hopes of later including them in vote totals if a judge ruled such ballots were allowed.

Election Day was November 6.

A decision Thursday by federal judge Mark Walker, a Barack Obama appointee, will allow voters to correct mismatched signatures on mailed-in and provisional ballots until Saturday. Republicans have appealed.

Republicans are already crying foul over Democrats’ efforts to overturn GOP victories in the races for governor and U.S. Senate by suing local election authorities to include votes that were improperly cast (or not cast).

Election officials in Broward County and Palm Beach County failed to comply with state laws and court orders regarding the counting and reporting of outstanding ballots, leading to speculation about efforts to tamper with the results.

Democrats have countered by claiming that Republicans do not want every vote to be counted.
