Nunes Tells FISA Court To Turn 
Over DOJ-FBI Carter Page Transcripts 
{ rickwells.us } ~ House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes is a fast moving machine when it comes to getting to the truth... about what the Democrats and their FBI and DOJ henchmen have been up to in their efforts to undermine President Trump, our representative government and the rule of law. Fox’s Catherine Herridge reports the Nunes “is now seeking transcripts from the National Security Court, also known as the FISA Court, where an application was approved in October of 2016, for that Trump campaign aide, Carter Page.” Herridge says, “Writing to Rosemary M. Collyer, she’s the presiding judge at the FISA Court here in Washington, the Republican chairman wants transcripts of any relevant hearings connected to the surveillance application for that Trump campaign aide, Carter Page.”... https://rickwells.us/nunes-fisa-page-transcripts/

GOP congressman demands Democrat 
Rep. scum-Adam Schiff resign after 
collusion attempt 
by Orhan Cam  
{ conservativeinstitute.org } ~ According to the Daily Mail, scum-Schiff’s staff corresponded in 2017 “with what they thought was a Ukrainian politician,” named Andriy Parubiy... the chairman of the Ukrainian Parliament, “to try to obtain the ‘classified’ material promised on the call.” But scum- Schiff and his staff were really speaking with two Russian comedians who are known for attempting to trick high-profile politicians, like U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley. But despite the fact that “it seems like a significant story,” according to Carlson, the news of scum-Schiff and his staff’s attempted involvement with Ukrainian officials received barely any mention in the mainstream media. Gaetz, contributing to Carlson’s show, agreed, and added that scum-Schiff ought to face consequences for his attempted actions. “ scum-Adam Schiff should step aside as the lead Democrat on the Intelligence Committee as a consequence of this scandal,” Gaetz told Carlson. He continued... https://www.conservativeinstitute.org/government-corruption/gop-con...

Sudden FBI departures indicate that the jig is up
by Thomas Lifson
{ americanthinker.com } ~ Choose your metaphor: rats leaving a sinking ship, cockroaches scurrying away from the light, or maybe just people cutting deals to save their butts...  Yesterday saw the FBI fan feculated.  The blandness of this Politico story, titled "Two more officials cited in FBI texts step down," conceals really, really big news.  The jig is up.  Each of the "officials" who is "stepping down" is leaving under duress and likely facing serious legal consequences for acts that have been disclosed – acts that go to the heart of the fraudulent application for the Page FISA warrant and the obstruction of justice in the liar-Hillary email probe. Hugh Hewitt explained the departure of David Laughman on Twitter, as noted on the Washington Post...   http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2018/02/sudden_fbi_departures_i...

San Fran’s Mass Exodus: Sanctuary Status,
Leftist Politics Driving Citizens Away 
by Trey Sanchez 
{ truthrevolt.org } ~ According to a KPIX 5 report, a record number of Bay Area residents are packing up and leaving San Francisco... many claiming the city’s progressive policies have driven them away. “Of course people come and go from the Bay Area all the time, but for the first time in a long time, more people are leaving the Bay Area than are coming in,” the report states. “And the number one place in the country for out-migration is now, right here.” Another factor is the high cost of housing that’s driving people out, even those working in high-income Silicon Valley. Employers are finding it hard to recruit because no one can buy a home. U-Haul businesses says they can’t keep stock of moving trucks because everyone is leaving and not coming back...https://www.truthrevolt.org/news/san-frans-mass-exodus-sanctuary-st...

liar-Clinton Chokes On Her Own 
Lies While Hustling Man-Hater Group 
{ rickwells.us } ~ For many patriotic Americans the only reason we would consider watching liar-Hillary Clinton is to see her get caught in a lie... to have fun cursing at the screen, or to witness her go into one of her now-familiar jerking or coughing fits. She provided us with the latter in a live streaming message to a group of butt-hurt sexist political manipulators on Wednesday. There were some ironic moments leading up to her hack attack, such as liar- Clinton claiming that the collective target of evil hetero male abuse, women, are telling the truth about their lives. Of course liar-Clinton never tells the truth and she was the one who demonized female victims and led her husband’s defense when he was caught putting something other than his hand in places other than liar- Clinton cookie jars. The destructive America-hater has such telling comments in promoting her own version of fundamental transformation as “let’s make sure the world is never the same,” something she’s already, unfortunately, taken care of...  https://rickwells.us/clinton-chokes-lies-hustling/

Sen. Warner's 'Back Channel' Is No Witch Hunt  

by Political Editors:  On Thursday, Fox News reported that Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA), the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, had been communicating with Adam Waldman, a lobbyist for a Russian oligarch, who offered him access to the British ex-spy and author of the anti-Trump dossier Christopher Steele. The story points to a string of text messages between Warner and Waldman in which it appears that Warner seeks to have a private conversation with Steele before any official testimony would be given to the full committee.

          Donald Trump responded to the story tweeting, “Wow! — Senator Mark Warner got caught having extensive contact with a lobbyist for a Russian oligarch. Warner did not want a ‘paper trail’ on a ‘private’ meeting (in London) he requested with Steele of fraudulent Dossier fame.
          However, several Republican members on the committee quickly pushed back against the allegations and actually defended Warner. Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) tweeted, “Sen. Warner fully disclosed this to the committee four months ago. Has had zero impact on our work.” An aide to committee chairman Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC) noted that the senator was aware of Warner’s use of a “back channel” attempt to try to get to Steele, and he had no concerns about it.
          In the end, this story appears to be more media hype than real news. Hey, it even got a tweet from Trump. While it’s no secret that Warner is no fan of Trump, assuming the worst of the senator without applying or seeking context is why much of the mainstream media’s reporting on Trump has been so biased and many times downright false. What makes this story a story is the MSM treatment of the whole Russiagate scandal. When mere accusations and innuendos are appealed to as facts, the result is fake news.   ~The Patriot Post

ALERT ALERT

 Judge Orders Mueller To Prove  Russia Meddled In Election 

Judge Dabney L. Friedrich

A Washington federal judge on Thursday ordered special counsel Robert Mueller’s team to clarify election meddling claims lodged against a Russian company operated by Yevgeny Prigozhin, an ally of Russian President Vladimir Putin, according to Bloomberg.

Concord Management and Consulting, LLC. – one of three businesses indicted by Mueller in February along with 13 individuals for election meddling, surprised the special counsel in April when they actually showed up in court to fight the charges. Mueller’s team tried to delay Concord from entering the case, arguing that thee Russian company not been properly served, however Judge Dabney Friedrich denied the request – effectively telling prosecutors ‘well, they’re here.’

Concord was accused in the indictment of supporting the Internet Research Agency (IRA), a Russian ‘troll farm’ accused of trying to influence the 2016 US election.

On Thursday, Judge Freidrich asked Mueller’s prosecutors if she should assume they aren’t accusing Concord of violating US laws applicable to election expenditures and failure to register as a foreign agent.

Concord has asked Dabney to throw out the charges – claiming that Mueller’s office fabricated a crime, and that there is no law against interfering in elections.

According to the judge’s request for clarification, the Justice Department has argued that it doesn’t have to show that Concord had a legal duty to report its expenditures to the Federal Election Commission. Rather, the allegation is that the company knowingly engaged in deceptive acts that precluded the FEC, or the Justice Department, from ascertaining whether they had broken the law. -Bloomberg

On Monday, Friedrich raised questions over whether the special counsel’s office could prove a key element of their case – saying that it was “hard to see” how allegations of Russian influence were intended to interfere with US government operations vs. simply “confusing voters,” reports law.com.

During a 90-minute hearing, Friedrich questioned prosecutor Jonathan Kravis about how the government would be able to show the Russian defendants were aware of the Justice Department and FEC’s functions and then deliberately sought to skirt them.

“You still have to show knowledge of the agencies and what they do. How do you do that?” Friedrich asked.

Kravis, a prosecutor in the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia, argued that the government needed only to show that Concord Management and the other defendants were generally aware that the U.S. government “regulates and monitors” foreign participation in American politics. That awareness, Kravis said, could be inferred from the Russians’ alleged creation of fake social media accounts that appeared to be run by U.S. citizens and “computer infrastructure” intended to mask the Russian origin of the influence operation.

“That is deception that is directed at a higher level,” Kravis said. Kravis appeared in court with Michael Dreeben, a top Justice Department appellate lawyer on detail to the special counsel’s office. -law.com

Concord pleaded not guilty in May. Their attorney, Eric Dubelier – a partner at Reed Smith, has described the election meddling charges as “make believe,” arguing on Monday that Mueller’s indictment against Concord “doesn’t charge a crime.”

“There is no statute of interfering with an election. There just isn’t,” said Dubelier, who added that Mueller’s office alleged a “made-up crime to fit the facts they have.”

Dubelier added that the case against Concord Management is the first in US history “where anyone has ever been charged with defrauding the Justice Department” through their failure to register under FARA.
