    In 2008, Sen. Bob Menendez sent a letter of support to the State Department to get two women from the Dominican Republic a U.S. visa, and one of these women happened to be the girlfriend of a wealthy eye doctor who prosecutors say bribed the Democratic senator with gifts and luxury vacations in exchange for favors. At least, that’s what Menendez’s former staffer, Mark Lopes, said while testifying against his old boss in court on Monday.

    http://thefederalist.com/2017/09/12/democrats-keep-mouths-shut-menendez-trial-gets-weirder/

    Today, Menendez and his wealthy friend, Dr. Salomon Melgen, face 18 counts of bribery and fraud. Both say they’re innocent of wrongdoing. Melgen was convicted of Medicaid fraud earlier this year and was the single largest Medicaid recipient in 2012 — snagging a cool $21 million that year. At the heart of the case against the eye doctor is a $8.9 million billing dispute, which is when prosecutors say Melgen asked Menendez to intervene with the government on his behalf.

    New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, a Republican, may chose another Republican to replace Menendez if his seat becomes vacant, which would affect the political makeup of the U.S. Senate. Yet Democrats are busy pretending like everything is fine.

    “Should a convicted felon be allowed to serve in the Senate?” a Republican operative recently asked Sen. Kamala Harris, over and over again, in the video below. Her response? Silence.

    She’s not the only Democrat who’s being tight-lipped about the trial. Last week, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said Menendez was issuing a “spirited defense” and refused to speculate about the potential outcomes of the trial or subsequent political consequences. Sen. Joe Manchin and a Democratic gubernatorial candidate in New Jersey also kept quiet when asked about Menendez’s case.

    REMINDER: SUSAN RICE LIED ABOUT HER ROLE IN THE OBAMA ADMIN UNMASKING SCANDAL
    http://thefederalist.com/2017/09/14/reminder-susan-rice-lied-role-obama-admin-unmasking-scandal/

    On March 22, Rep. Devin Nunes made his ham-fisted disclosure that the Obama administration had conducted incidental surveillance collection and unmasking of Trump administration officials. It was a revelation that ignited widespread criticism from nearly every corner of Washington

    “I have seen intelligence reports that clearly show that the president-elect and his team were, I guess, at least monitored,” the House intelligence chairman said at the time. “It looks to me like it was all legally collected, but it was essentially a lot of information on the president-elect and his transition team and what they were doing.” Nunes went on to claim that the information was spread across a number of agencies and had “little or no apparent intelligence value.”


    Perhaps Nunes’ reasons were partisan. Perhaps his framing was exaggerated. We’ll see. But if CNN’s reporting is correct, everything Nunes claimed that day was basically true. Which is a lot more than we can say for others.

    On the same day, former National Security Adviser Susan Rice was interviewed by PBS’s Judy Woodruff and asked to respond to Nunes’ accusation that she had unmasked those Trump officials in the waning days of the Obama administration. Here is the exchange:

    Woodruff: We’ve been following a disclosure by the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Devin Nunes, that in essence, during the final days of the Obama administration, during the transition, after President Trump had been elected, that he and the people around him may have been caught up in surveillance of foreign individuals in that their identities may have been disclosed. Do you know anything about this?
    Rice: I know nothing about this. I was surprised to see reports from Chairman Nunes on that count today.
    As we now know, Rice wasn’t surprised. At all. Wednesday, CNN reported that Obama’s former national security adviser told House investigators that she had unmasked those senior Trump officials in an effort “to understand why the crown prince of the United Arab Emirates was in New York late last year.” According to the report, the Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed al Nahyan had circumvented some diplomatic courtesy, which, apparently, was enough justification to spy on American citizens.

    The meeting had reportedly come on the heels of efforts by UAE officials to create a back-channel communication between Russia and incoming Trump administration. According CNN, the get-together, which included Michael Flynn, Jared Kushner, and Steve Bannon, was completely Russia-free:

    ‘The meeting was about ascertaining the Trump team’s view of the region and sharing the UAE’s view of the region and what the U.S. role should be,’ a senior Middle East official told CNN. ‘No one was coming in to sell anything or arrange anything.’

    Trey Gowdy and other House members seem okay with this precedent, so I guess there’s nothing to see here. “I didn’t hear anything to believe that she did anything illegal,” Florida Rep. Tom Rooney explained to CNN. Unless Rice or some other Obama official admits to leaking classified information, this statement is surely true.

    Then again, there has been a constant conflating of illegality and abuse by those covering this story. Unmasking is a legitimate power. Few argue it should be illegal. The question is, was it abused for political purposes. When it was convenient, Bernie Sanders, Al Franken, the American Civil Liberties Union, and numerous others on the Left warned that Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance could be legally weaponized for political gain. There is no genuine oversight. We are asked to have faith in those in power.

    Has Rice earned that trust? This, after all, is the woman who went on national television and repeated a bunch of Ben Rhodes-authored falsehoods regarding the September 11, 2012, Benghazi terror attacks, claiming they were a “spontaneous reaction” to “hateful and offensive video.” This is the woman who went on PBS to lie about her role in unmasking, although there was apparently nothing wrong with it. Rice didn’t tell Woodruff “I can’t disclose that kind of sensitive information,” or “no comment,” she told her “I know nothing about this.” Rice is extraordinarily comfortable lying to the American people.

    As I’ve noted many times, I’m willing to believe the worst about the Trump administration. This a courtesy I try to extend to every administration. So I do hope that Rice explained to House investigators how this unmasking helped protect Americans from foreign threats since unmasking is typically reserved for law enforcement in anti-terror or espionage investigations. Otherwise, it sure looks like members of an incoming Republican administration were spied on by a Democratic political operative who happened to find a meeting suspicious. Some of us troglodytes might view this kind of thing as an abuse of power. So it’ll be interesting to hear Gowdy and others explain why it wasn’t.

    Trump Wins Dangerous “Pakistan Gambit” That Spells “Total Doom” For US Democratic Party
    September 14, 2017
    http://www.whatdoesitmean.com/index2384.htm

    An intriguing Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) report circulating in the Kremlin today reveals that President Donald Trump has pulled off one the most dangerous “gambit deals” [an action entailing a degree of risk calculated to gain an advantage] ever attempted in modern American political history when he pitted a $225 million military aid package to Pakistan against that nation’s Inter-Services Intelligence (IS) spy agency to pressure them into agreeing to immediately surrender a Pakistani woman to US authorities—and whose testimony could very well spell the “total doom” of the entire American Democratic Party.  [Note: Some words and/or phrases appearing in quotes in this report are English language approximations of Russian words/phrases having no exact counterpart.]

    According to this report, President Trump’s “gambit deal” with Pakistan began on 6 April 2017 when the United States Capitol Police (USCP) filed a mysterious report that stated:

    “On 4/6/2017 at 0021 hours, with the building closed to the public, AOC informed USCP Rayburn offices of an unattended bag in the phone booth on the 2nd floor. The officer received the open-contents visible bag and prepared a found property report. While reviewing the inventory of the bag contents, the officer found

    #1 a Pakistani ID card with the name Mohommed Ashraf Awan

    #2 a copy – not original – of a drivers license with name Imran Awan

    #3 a copy (front and back) of his congressional ID

    #4 an Apple laptop with the homescreen initials ‘RepDWS’ (Representative Debbie Wasserman-Shultz)

    #5 composition notebooks with notes handwritten saying ‘attorney client privilege’ and possibly discussing case details below

    #6 loose letters addressed to US Attorney of DC discussing the apparent owner of the bag being investigated.

    Approximately 3-4 months ago officer was requested by SAA as police presence of 4 individuals being interviewed, including the bag owner. It is unknown to the officer whether he is still employed.”



    Wasserman Schultz’s laptop, legal notebook and letters to US Attorney were left in old phone booth
    like this one in the Rayburn building shortly after Midnight on 6 April 2017

    Mohommed Ashraf Awan, this report explains, had previously been identified by the SVR as being a “deep cover” Pakistani IS operative who had embedded himself within the Democratic Party establishment working under his Americanized name of Imran Awan—and who was the top computer information technology specialist for disgraced former Democratic National Committee (DNC) chairman, and US Congresswoman, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz.

    Labeled previously by the SVR as a “radical Islamic spy master”, this report details, Imran Awan first infiltrated the US Congress in January 2004 when he became the “information technology director” for Democratic Party US Congressman Robert Wexler—and who, also, over these past nearly 13 years, infiltrated into the US Congress his wife, Hina Alvi, and his brothers Abid and Jamal—with Jamal, at just 20 years old, being given by the Democratic Party in the US Congress the outlandish yearly salary of $160,000.



    Pakistani IS spy Imran Awan (right) with former President Bill Clinton (left)

    The Imran Awan spy ring operating within the US Capitol under the protection of the Democratic Party, this report continues, began to unravel this past February (2017) when they were linked to the death of Navy SEAL William Ryan Owens whose secret raid details were leaked—and whom President Trump quickly retaliated against.

    With President Trump’s forces closing in on them, this report notes, Imran Awan’s wife Hina Alvi, on 5 March, was able to flee the United States with other members of her family—while Imran Awan stayed behind to liquidate their families vast real estate holdings made possible by the $9 million paid to them by the Democratic Party and US Congress—but who himself was successfully captured by US federal forces on 24 July when he had attempted to flee too—but who was arrested because he pretended to be his wife when requesting a loan from the US Congressional Federal Credit Union—got the loan, and then had this credit union wire $165,000 to Pakistan—with no no questions asked.

    Even after his wife Hina Alvi had fled to Pakistan, this report continues, Congresswoman Wasserman-Shultz continued paying Imran Awan up the very day of his arrest—and that she fully intended on continuing to pay him should he have successfully been able to flee.



    As to why Congressman Wasserman-Shultz and her Democratic Party continued to pay Imran Awan, this report explains, was due to their fears of what he knew—and that was everything as he had installed a secret server to capture every single US Congress document produced, including intelligence files—and as astonishingly described the Washington D.C. based Daily Caller News Service:

    “Now-indicted former congressional IT aide Imran Awan allegedly routed data from numerous House Democrats to a secret server. Police grew suspicious and requested a copy of the server early this year, but they were provided with an elaborate falsified image designed to hide the massive violations.

    The falsified image is what ultimately triggered their ban from the House network Feb. 2, according to a senior House official with direct knowledge of the investigation.

    The secret server was connected to the House Democratic Caucus, an organization chaired by then-Rep. Xavier Becerra. Police informed Becerra that the server was the subject of an investigation and requested a copy of it. Authorities considered the false image they received to be interference in a criminal investigation, the senior official said.

    Data was also backed up to Dropbox in huge quantities, the official said. Congressional offices are prohibited from using Dropbox, so an unofficial account was used, meaning Awan could have still had access to the data even though he was banned from the congressional network.”



    Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (left) and Imran Awan (right)

    Important to about Imran Awan, too, this report says, are that his actions on 6 April when he left for the US Capitol Police to find Congressman Wasserman-Schultz’s laptop Apple computer, confidential attorney notes, and letters to the US Attorney (that were found on the second floor of the Rayburn building – a place Awan would have had no reason to go because Wasserman Schultz's office is in the Longworth building) shows he is in great fear too—and as US Congressman Louie Gohmert confirmed with his recently stating: “If Awan thought he was better off with his crimes documented, that suggests he feared something worse than prison, that this was a matter of life insurance.”

    As to what and/or whom Imran Awan would fear more than prison, this report details, is, most certainly, the Clinton Crime Family and their infamous “Clinton Death List”—and who immediately after Awan’s arrest, dispatched one of their top “inner-circle” attorneys named Chris Gowan to defend him—with no one bothering to explain (or the US mainstream press investigating) how a defendant who just told a US Federal Judge that he could not afford an attorney because he was “millions of dollars in debt”, could, 15 minutes later, have one of the most expensive lawyers in America defending him.



    Congresswoman Wasserman-Shultz, also, this report continues, employed another high-power Clinton Crime Family attorney named William Pittard, to argue that her Apple laptop computer obtained by the US Capitol Police from Imran Awan as his “life insurance policy” should not be examined—but who wasn’t successful in this childish effort, with Imran Awan even now having for himself a complete copy of this computers hard drive given to him by US Attorneys under that nations “discovery laws”.

    In his knowing that this scandal could very well destroy the Democratic Party forever, this report notes, President Trump, also, knew that in order for US federal prosecutors to discover how “wide and deep” the Imran Awan spy ring had penetrated the government, and what other secrets they possessed, “hinged/pivoted” on their securing the testimony of Awan’s wife Hina Alvi—but whom, in late August, Pakistan refused to extradite to the United States.

    Immediately following Pakistan’s refusal to hand over Hina Alvi, this report continues, President Trump, on 30 August, employed his “gambit” by his notifying the US Congress that he was putting $255 million in military assistance to Pakistan on hold—while at the same time offering to both Imran Awan and his wife Hina Alvi what some are now describing as a “significant immunity deal”.



    Though Pakistan initially slammed President Trump for being “hostile and threatening” towards them, this report says, their powerful Inter-Services Intelligence spy agency, nevertheless, agreed to expedite Hina Alvi’s travel to America later this month—under the condition that she not be arrested or handcuffed in front of her children—but who will have to turn-in her passport when she returns to the United States, with her further agreeing not seek or book any international travel following her appearance in the United States Federal Court.

    In order to ensure that Inter-Services Intelligence keeps their side of this agreement to return Hina Alvi to the United States by the end of this month, this report notes, President Trump had his US State Department, yesterday, place Pakistan in a category that lists them as not being fiscally transparent in how they spend American money on their spy agencies—but that after Hina Alvi reaches the US, will be rescinded, thus allowing Pakistan to receive their $225 million in military assistance currently being blocked.

    With the US mainstream propaganda media still blacklisting the information of the, most likely, greatest scandal in US history from being widely known to the America people, and who never report on any scandals involving the Democratic Party, this report continues, their being able to ignore this any longer is coming to a quick end—and when compared to the “fake news” Russian scandal, is not only real, but growing in its ferocity too.



    This report concludes with SVR intelligence analysts predicting that President Trump will “weaponize” this scandal in order to totally destroy the Democratic Party—with Trump expected to drag it out for months to its climax during the 2018 US midterm elections that the Democratic Party has only managed to raise $21 million in donations from small donors for, and whose former DNC Chairman, Howard Dean, stunningly just admitted about America’s young voters “these people are not Democrats”—and whose nominal leader, Hillary Clinton, has just released a new book showing that she still doesn’t know why she lost to President Trump—but that any Russian school-child knowing simple mathematics could explain by their showing Clinton the fact that Trump won 2,622 counties in America, while she only won 490—and that no matter how much the Democratic Party and their mainstream media sycophant elites don’t like to face it, there are simply not enough coastal seats to be won for Democrats to ever win the US Congress again.

    BOOM! Top Democrat Becerra Is Caught Giving Cops a Fake Server on Imran Awan Scandal
    http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2017/09/boom-top-democrat-becerra-caught-giving-cops-fake-server-imran-awan-scandal/

    Last week Capitol Police confirmed Wasserman Schultz’s laptop was found in phone booth at 3 AM with a note to US attorney attached from Imran Awan.

    Now this story gets REALLY INTERESTING—-


    Top Democrat Xavier Becerra, the current California Attorney General, was caught giving officials a fake server related to the Imran Awan investigation.

    The Daily Caller News Foundation reported:

       Now-indicted former congressional IT aide Imran Awan allegedly routed data from numerous House Democrats to a secret server. Police grew suspicious and requested a copy of the server early this year, but they were provided with an elaborate falsified image designed to hide the massive violations. The falsified image is what ultimately triggered their ban from the House network Feb. 2, according to a senior House official with direct knowledge of the investigation.

     The secret server was connected to the House Democratic Caucus, an organization chaired by then-Rep. Xavier Becerra. Police informed Becerra that the server was the subject of an investigation and requested a copy of it. Authorities considered the false image they received to be interference in a criminal investigation, the senior official said.

       Data was also backed up to Dropbox in huge quantities, the official said. Congressional offices are prohibited from using Dropbox, so an unofficial account was used, meaning Awan could have still had access to the data even though he was banned from the congressional network.

    Obviously, Democrats are worried about the Awan scandal.
    Now it makes sense why the liberal media is ignoring this story.

    FBI Paid $100K+ For Concocted Trump Dossier During Election;
    John McCain Helped Broker Classified Deal With Comey

    http://truepundit.com/fbi-paid-100k-for-concocted-trump-dossier-during-election-john-mccain-help-broker-deal-with-comey/

    FBI insiders say fired FBI Director James Comey and Andrew McCabe, deputy FBI director, used Bureau funds to underwrite the controversial dossier on President Donald Trump during the 2016 presidential election, sources confirm.

    And the deal to dig dirt on a presidential candidate was put together with the help of Sen. John McCain
    , sources said.

    These new revelations in fact might be the worst kept secrets in Washington, D.C. but now rank-and-file FBI agents want the Bureau to come clean on its relationship with the author of the problematic Trump dossier, former British spy Christopher Steele.

    True Pundit first received intelligence from FBI sources in March that the Bureau had struck a financial deal with Steele in 2016.

    Federal law enforcement agents have since divulged to True Pundit:

    ° Steele was likely paid in the $100,000 range by the FBI for the research. Perhaps even more.
    ° Sen. John McCain was involved in brokering the introduction of Steele or Steele’s preliminary research to FBI bosses.
    ° The FBI routinely pays third-party private Intel firms to gather evidence used to secure federal search warrants and arrest warrants, as well as FISA court warrants.
    ° The FBI does not vet the privately commissioned investigators, like Fusion GPS, who work “off the books” for the Bureau.
    °The FBI pays such contractors from a budget that is not part of its public expenditures. The transactions are confidential, therefore, ° °Freedom of Information Requests (FOIA) on such transactions are easily and legally denied.
    ° Steele and the firm Fusion GPS may have performed additional privately-commissioned intelligence work for the FBI.

    The Steele dossier on Trump has since proven to be chalk-full (chalk, not “chock” used intentionally here) of wild and unproven intelligence.

    The more disturbing revelations however, is that a GOP U.S. Senator from the same party as Trump likely assisted the FBI to perform a bogus investigation of a presidential candidate during the 2016 election; the results of which were leaked to the news media in an attempt to boost Democrat Hillary Clinton’s chances of winning the presidency.

    Also, it now appears the FBI had a definitive role in digging dirt on a presidential candidate with the likely intent to sway an election.

    It’s little wonder the FBI has blocked efforts to turn over records on its relationship with Steele, Fusion GPS, and McCain’s role in putting the two entities together.

    It's Bad: New Emails Show Huma Abedin Mishandled Classified Info on Barrage of Sensitive Issues
    https://townhall.com/tipsheet/katiepavlich/2017/09/14/new-emails-show-clinton-mishandled-even-more-classified-information-n2381433

    Government watchdog Judicial Watch has just released a new batch of emails, more than 1600 pages worth, belonging to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and longtime aide Huma Abedin. The emails, released by the State Department as part of a lawsuit, show further mishandling of classified information.

    The list of egregious incidents is long, including exposure of a classified conversation about U.S.-Israeli relations, the war against drug cartels in Mexico, details about Clinton's arrival in war torn Afghanistan, Afghanistan elections and much more. Here are a few, bolding is mine:

    On March 8, 2009, Clinton sent classified information using her unsecure hdr22@clintonmail.com account. She forwarded to former Senator George Mitchell an email from Tony Blair relating to Palestine. The email had been sent to her at hr15@att.blackberry.net. Clinton responded to Blair, saying she had forwarded the email to Mitchell. A former Senate majority leader, Mitchell was serving as Special Envoy for Middle East Peace.

    On June 23, 2009, U.S. diplomat Martin Indyk, who had his security clearance suspended in 2000 for “possible sloppiness” in the handling of classified information, sent a memo containing classified information to Abedin’s unsecure email account. The memo, written for Clinton, pertained to Indyk’s discussions with top Israeli officials:

    "Could I ask you to review the memo below that I wrote yesterday on my return from Israel? If you think it worthwhile, I’d be very grateful if you showed it to HRC (I have already shared it with Mitchell and Feltman). A confrontation with Bibi appears imminent. I’ve never been one to shy away from that, as she may know. But it has to be done carefully, and that doesn’t appear to be happening. And I’m concerned that she will be tarred with the same brush if this leads to a bad end. So I think she needs to make sure that the friction is productive. I’ve made some suggestions at the end of the memo."

    On December 1, 2009, Abedin sent classified information about foreign military contributions to the Afghanistan war effort to her unsecure email account. The email originated with State official Sean Misko who wrote to Deputy Chief of Staff Jake Sullivan that he first “accidentally” sent it on the “high side” (secure) but was resending.

    On December 25, 2009, Abedin sent to her unsecure email account classified information prepared by Deputy U.S. Ambassador to Afghanistan Francis Ricciardone concerning the Afghan elections.

    On December 26, 2009, U.S. Ambassador to Mexico Carlos Pascual sent a memo to Clinton, which was found on Abedin’s unsecure email account. It contained extensive classified information involving U.S. and Mexican counter-drug operations in Mexico.

    The details of Hillary’s arrival on November 18, 2009, in war-torn Kabul, Afghanistan, for the inauguration of President Karzai, were found on Abedin’s unsecure email account. Included were precise times of landing at Kabul Airport, the occupants of her vehicle, arrival and departure times at the U.S. Embassy in Kabul, and meeting times with U.S. forces in Afghanistan.

    Then, there's this nugget:

    On August 18, 2009, confidential assistant Monica Hanley provided Abedin with laptop and fob (a physical device that provides a login code) logins and passwords to log onto a laptop, as well as a secure State Department website at https://one.state.gov. Included were a PIN number and instructions on how to access her email from the secure State Department website. Abedin forwarded this information to her unsecure account.

    Keep in mind hackers regularly tried to access unsercured servers being used by Clinton and her associates.

    Clinton claimed she turned over all personal emails related to State Department business, but this new release found 97 emails that were not included. The new emails also show Abedin doing favors for Clinton Foundation donors while occupying an official State Department position. You can read those details here.

    The release comes as Clinton embarks on a promotional tour for her book What Happened about her 2016 election loss to Donald Trump. In interviews, Clinton has said using private email was a mistake but has not admitted lying throughout the email scandal helped lead to her defeat.

    “The emails show ‘what happened’ was that Hillary Clinton and Huma Abedin obviously violated laws about the handling of classified information and turned the State Department into a pay for play tool for the corrupt Clinton Foundation,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton released in a statement. “The clear and mounting evidence of pay for play and mishandling of classified information warrant a serious criminal investigation by an independent Trump Justice Department.”

    Yesterday government watchdog Judicial Watch released a new set of emails exposing former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and top aide Huma Abedin mishandled even more classified information than previously revealed. The emails also show extensive examples of pay-for-play and Clinton clearly using her position at the State Department to benefit the Clinton Foundation.

    Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton detailed the findings during an interview with Fox News Friday morning.

    "It's email after email of Doug Band, who was a Clinton Foundation top official, working with the Clintons closely, coordinating and working with Huma Abedin to take care of favors for Clinton Foundation donors," Fitton said. "Visas to Cuba, meetings in Singapore, other types of activity like that. It's there, black and white, and I don't understand why the Justice Department hasn't gotten its act together and reinitiated an investigation as to what went on here because we all know Comey's investigation was a sham. They need to restart it up."

    On May 5, 2010, major Clinton Global Initiative member, Clinton Foundation donor and real estate developer Eddie Trump forwarded to “Dougie” Band a request for assistance from Russian American Foundation Vice President Rina Kirshner to get the Russian American Foundation involved in a State Department program. Band forwarded the request to Abedin, saying, “Can we get this done/mtg set.” As Judicial Watch previously reported, the State Department doled out more than $260,000 to the Russian American Foundation for “public diplomacy.”

    On July 16, 2009, Zachary Schwartz asked Band for help getting visas to travel to Cuba for a film production crew from Shangri La Entertainment. Band forwarded the request to Abedin, telling her, “Please call zach asap on this. [Redacted.] Important.” Abedin responded, “I’ll call zach when we land in India.” Abedin concludes with “Enjoy. Cuba is complicated. Am sure you aren’t surprised to hear that.” Schwartz worked for Steve Bing, a mega-donor to the Clintons and owner of Shangri La Entertainment. Bing has reportedly donated $10-25 million to the Clinton Foundation and paid Bill Clinton personally $2.5 million a year to be an adviser to a green construction company Bing owned.

    On September 11, 2009, Terrence Duffy, chairman of futures brokerage firm CME Group, a donor to the Clinton Foundation, asked Clinton to arrange “government appointments” for him in Singapore and Hong Kong. Clinton, using her HDR22@clintonmail.com address, forwarded the request to Abedin, “fyi.” Abedin responded to Duffy’s email, saying she would “follow up” with Duffy’s secretary, Joyce. Duffy gave $4,600 to Hillary’s 2008 presidential campaign; CME Group paid Hillary $225,000 for a speaking fee and has donated between $5,001 and 10,000 to the Clinton Foundation.

    Abedin, using her huma@clintonmail.com address, later told Joyce, “Would like to get some more information and details so we can try to help.” Further along in the exchange, Joyce responds “We would also like some help in arranging meetings with some key govt officials in both locations, such as the Prime Minister of Singapore, and would appreciate any help you may be able to provide.”
    The Justice Department has given no indication the Clinton case will be reopened, however, officials also do not confirm or deny whether an investigation is currently underway.

    Manafort Calls On DOJ To Release His Intercepted Phone Calls; Demands Investigation Of Leaks
    http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-09-19/manafort-calls-doj-release-his-intercepted-phone-calls-demands-investigation-leaks

    Less than 24 hours after CNN triggered the latest outbreak of 'Trump Derangement Syndrome' by relaying information from anonymous sources that Trump's former campaign manager Paul Manfort has been under surveillance by the FBI since 2014, Manafort has fired back by calling on the Department of Justice to release all transcripts of his tapped phone calls so that the American public "can come to the same conclusion as the DOJ — there is nothing there."

    Per the Daily Caller:

    Former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort is calling on the Justice Department to release transcripts of any intercepted communications he may have had with foreigners.

    Manafort, a longtime Republican political consultant, also called on the Justice Department’s inspector general to investigate the leak of details of secret surveillance warrants obtained by U.S. investigators.

    “Mr. Manafort requests that the Department of Justice release any intercepts involving him and any non-Americans so interested parties can come to the same conclusion as the DOJ — there is nothing there,” Manafort spokesman Jason Maloni said in a statement.

    Manafort's spokesman goes on to demand that the DOJ launch an immediate investigation into who continues to commit federal felonies with reckless abandon by leaking details of confidential FISA warrants to the media.

    Whether or not Manafort committed a crime — and he has not been charged with anything — the leak of information about FISA warrants is a federal crime, Maloni noted in his statement.

    “If true, it is a felony to reveal the existence of a FISA warrant, regardless of the fact that no charges ever emerged,” Maloni said.

    Information about FISA warrants is classified and tightly held by government officials and the federal judges that approve them. Unauthorized disclosures of FISA information is also a felony. At a House Intelligence Committee hearing in March, then-FBI Director James Comey testified that the leak of FISA information is punishable by up to 10 years in prison.

    In his statement, Maloni called on the Justice Department’s watchdog to “immediately” open an investigation into the leak and to “examine the motivations behind the previous Administration’s effort to surveil a political opponent.”

    Of course, this was all triggered by CNN's 'bombshell' story last night which revealed that Manafort has been under an ongoing wiretap, approved by the FISA courts, going back to 2014 and tied to his consulting arrangements with Ukraine's former ruling party.

    That said, the interesting part of CNN's story came via the revelation that "surveillance [of Manafort] was discontinued at some point last year for lack of evidence" but was then restarted with a "new FISA warrant that extended at least into early this year"...all of which sounds an awful lot like the Obama administration using FISA courts to spy on a political opponent.

    Here are the details as presented by CNN:

    US investigators wiretapped former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort under secret court orders before and after the election, sources tell CNN, an extraordinary step involving a high-ranking campaign official now at the center of the Russia meddling probe.

    The government snooping continued into early this year, including a period when Manafort was known to talk to President Donald Trump.

    Some of the intelligence collected includes communications that sparked concerns among investigators that Manafort had encouraged the Russians to help with the campaign, according to three sources familiar with the investigation. Two of these sources, however, cautioned that the evidence is not conclusive.

    Special counsel Robert Mueller's team, which is leading the investigation into Russia's involvement in the election, has been provided details of these communications.

    A secret order authorized by the court that handles the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) began after Manafort became the subject of an FBI investigation that began in 2014. It centered on work done by a group of Washington consulting firms for Ukraine's former ruling party, the sources told CNN.

    The surveillance was discontinued at some point last year for lack of evidence, according to one of the sources.

    The FBI then restarted the surveillance after obtaining a new FISA warrant that extended at least into early this year.
    All of which has led many people to question throughout the day whether the Obama administration, as Trump suggested back in March, did intentionally spy on his campaign using FISA warrants.

    Certainly these two tweets from CNN's Jake Tapper would seem to be somewhat contradictory:

    Jake Tapper‏Verified account
    @jaketapper
    POTUS makes wild accusation w/zero evidence
    WH searches for evidence & cant find any

    Russian Collusion? New Emails Reveal Hillary Clinton Invited Putin To "Pay For Play" Event
    http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-09-19/russian-collusion-new-emails-reveal-hillary-clinton-invited-putin-pay-play-event

    In newly released emails which the mainstream media is willfully ignoring, Hillary Clinton invited Russian president Vladimir Putin to a Clinton Foundation event. The Russian collusion between Hillary Clinton is becoming very apparent.

    Hillary Clinton likes to talk a tough game about Russian President Vladimir Putin. And she likes to put him on the list of those at fault for her loss in the election last November to Donald Trump. But that didn’t stop her from inviting him and other top Russian officials to a Clinton Foundation gala right after she became Secretary of State.

    Clinton Foundation director of foreign policy Amitabh Desai sent dozens of invitations to world leaders including then-Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev, and Former President of the Soviet Union Mikhail Gorbachev, emails recently obtained by Judicial Watch revealed.
    While Democrats blast any Republican who has the nerve to even look Russia’s direction, Hillary and her minions in the Clinton Foundation were begging the Russians to come to an event put on by the “pay for play” organization.

    Hillary offered political favors in exchange for money filtered through the Clinton Foundation.

    On March 13, 2009, Desai emailed the list of invitations to Assistant Secretary of State Andrew Shapiro, who then forwarded the email to top Clinton aide, Jake Sullivan. This happened at approximately the same time that the newly appointed Clinton tried to “reset” U.S. relations with Russia. Yet, Donald Trump has been blasted for trying to do the same thing. The propaganda in the media is becoming clear as they continue to brush this story under the rug too.

    Hillary Clinton repeatedly attacked Putin during her 2016 presidential campaign and often tried to link president Donald Trump to the Russian leader. Clinton and her staff, with help from Barack Obama and the media also allegedly concocted the “Russian hacking” narrative within 24-hours of her election defeat, as documented in the Clinton campaign tell-all book, Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Doomed Campaign:

    That strategy had been set within twenty-four hours of her concession speech. Mook and Podesta assembled her communications team at the Brooklyn headquarters to engineer the case that the election wasn’t entirely on the up-and-up.

    For a couple of hours, with Shake Shack containers littering the room, they went over the script they would pitch to the press and the public. Already, Russian hacking was the centerpiece of the argument.

    Clinton’s public display of contempt for Putin does not match her track record of how she interacted with the Russian leader in the past as controversy swirled following a uranium deal she approved while at the State Department. The deal was quickly followed by a massive donation to her foundation, proving the “pay for play” policy she herself used to become wealthy.

    “One year after inviting Putin to the Clinton Foundation event, she approved the sale of 20% of America’s uranium capacity to Russia,” Conservative Review noted.

    “Shortly thereafter, donors connected to the company that was sold to Russia contributed $145 million in donations to the Clinton Foundation.”
    These newly released emails simply prove what most already knew – Hillary Clinton’s collusion with Russia is far deeper than Donald Trump’s.

    The media is less interested in Obama Administration wiretapping than in how Trump described it...

    This week CNN is reporting more details on the Obama Administration’s 2016 surveillance of people connected to the presidential campaign of the party out of power. It seems that once President Obama’s appointee to run the FBI, James Comey, had secured authorization for wiretapping, the bureau continued its surveillance into 2017.

    CNN reports:

    US investigators wiretapped former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort under secret court orders before and after the election, sources tell CNN, an extraordinary step involving a high-ranking campaign official now at the center of the Russia meddling probe.

    The government snooping continued into early this year, including a period when Manafort was known to talk to President Donald Trump.

    Some of the intelligence collected includes communications that sparked concerns among investigators that Manafort had encouraged the Russians to help with the campaign, according to three sources familiar with the investigation. Two of these sources, however, cautioned that the evidence is not conclusive.
    This means the wiretapping was authorized more than ten months ago and perhaps more than a year ago.

    It was presumably a tough decision for a judge to issue a secret warrant under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, enabling the administration to spy on someone connected with the presidential campaign of its political adversaries.

    One would presumably only approve such an order if the request presented by the executive branch was highly compelling and likely to produce evidence that the subject of the wiretap was in fact working with Russia to disrupt U.S. elections.

    Roughly a year later, as the public still waits for such evidence, this column wonders how this judge is feeling now, especially now that CNN has reported that at least two of its three sources believe the resulting evidence is inconclusive.

    One would also presume—or at least hope—that seeking to wiretap associates of the leader of the political opposition is not an everyday occurrence in any administration. At the very least, it seems highly unlikely that such a decision would be made by a mid-level official. CNN notes,

    “Such warrants require the approval of top Justice Department (Loretta Lynch) and FBI officials, and the FBI must provide the court with information showing suspicion that the subject of the warrant may be acting as an agent of a foreign power.”

    It seems reasonable for the public to know exactly which officials made this decision and who else they consulted or informed of their surveillance plans. Was the President briefed on the details of this investigation?

    And as for the information showing suspicion, where did the FBI come up with that? A September 7 column from the Journal’s Kim Strassel raises disturbing questions, based on recent events and a Washington Post story from last winter. Ms. Strassel writes:

    The House Intelligence Committee’s investigation took a sharp and notable turn on Tuesday, as news broke that it had subpoenaed the FBI and the Justice Department for information relating to the infamous Trump “dossier.”

    That dossier, whose allegations appear to have been fabricated, was commissioned by the opposition-research firm Fusion GPS and then developed by a former British spook named Christopher Steele. ..

    The Washington Post in February reported that Mr. Steele “was familiar” to the FBI, since he’d worked for the bureau before. The newspaper said Mr. Steele had reached out to a “friend” at the FBI about his Trump work as far back as July 2016. The Post even reported that Mr. Steele “reached an agreement with the FBI a few weeks before the election for the bureau to pay him to continue his work.”


    Oddly, even though CNN is the source of this week’s news, the media outlet seems less interested in President Obama’s knowledge of the surveillance activities that occurred on his watch and against his political adversaries than in how President Trump has described them.

    CNN’s scoop doesn’t even mention Mr. Obama except in the context of Mr. Trump’s accusations of wiretapping against the former president that appeared on Twitter in March. CNN has followed up with another story saying that Mr. Trump’s accusations have still not been proven.

    That’s true, although Mr. Trump’s argument may be getting stronger. And whatever Donald Trump’s tweets say, Americans deserve to know how our government came to spy on people associated with the presidential campaign of the party out of power.

    "Extraordinary & Worrisome" - WSJ Demands To Know How FBI 'Meddled' In 2016 Elections
    http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-09-20/extraordinary-worrisome-wall-street-journal-demands-know-how-fbi-meddled-2016-electi

    Via The Wall Street Journal's Editorial Board,

    Congress needs to learn how the FBI meddled in the 2016 campaign.

    When Donald Trump claimed in March that he’d had his “wires tapped” prior to the election, the press and Obama officials dismissed the accusation as a fantasy. We were among the skeptics, but with former director James Comey’s politicized FBI the story is getting more complicated.

    CNN reported Monday that the FBI obtained a warrant last year to eavesdrop on Paul Manafort, Mr. Trump’s campaign manager from May to August in 2016. The story claims the FBI first wiretapped Mr. Manafort in 2014 while investigating his work as a lobbyist for Ukraine’s ruling party. That warrant lapsed, but the FBI convinced the court that administers the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) to issue a second order as part of its probe into Russian meddling in the election.

    Guess who has lived in a condo in Trump Tower since 2006? Paul Manafort.

    The story suggests the monitoring started in the summer or fall, and extended into early this year.

    While Mr. Manafort resigned from the campaign in August, he continued to speak with Candidate Trump.

    It is thus highly likely that the FBI was listening to the political and election-related conversations of a leading contender for the White House.

    That’s extraordinary - and worrisome.


    Mr. Comey told Congress in late March that he “had no information that supports those [Trump] tweets.”

    Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper was even more specific that “there was no such wiretap activity mounted against—the President-elect at the time, or as a candidate, or against his campaign.”

    He denied that any such FISA order existed.
    Were they lying?

    The warrant’s timing may also shed light on the FBI’s relationship to the infamous “ Steele dossier.” That widely discredited dossier claiming ties between Russians and the Trump campaign was commissioned by left-leaning research firm Fusion GPS and developed by former British spy Christopher Steele—who relied on Russian sources. But the Washington Post and others have reported that Mr. Steele was familiar to the FBI, had reached out to the agency about his work, and had even arranged a deal in 2016 to get paid by the FBI to continue his research.

    The FISA court sets a high bar for warrants on U.S. citizens, and presumably even higher for wiretapping a presidential campaign. Did Mr. Comey’s FBI marshal the Steele dossier to persuade the court?

    All of this is reason for House and Senate investigators to keep exploring how Mr. Comey’s FBI was investigating both presidential campaigns.

    Russian meddling is a threat to democracy but so was the FBI if it relied on Russian disinformation to eavesdrop on a presidential campaign. The Justice Department and FBI have stonewalled Congressional requests for documents and interviews, citing the “integrity” of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.

    But Mr. Mueller is not investigating the FBI, and in any event his ties to the bureau and Mr. Comey make him too conflicted for such a job. Congress is charged with providing oversight of law enforcement and the FISA courts, and it has an obligation to investigate their role in 2016. The intelligence committees have subpoena authority and the ability to hold those who don’t cooperate in contempt.

    Mr. Comey investigated both leading presidential campaigns in an election year, playing the role of supposedly impartial legal authority. But his maneuvering to get Mr. Mueller appointed, and his leaks to the press, have shown that Mr. Comey is as political and self-serving as anyone in Washington.

    No investigation into Russia’s role in the 2016 campaign will be credible or complete without the facts about all Mr. Comey’s wiretaps.

    Tucker ON FIRE Over Trump Wiretap: 'We Live In A Country With Deeply Corrupt Institutions'
    http://dailycaller.com/2017/09/19/tucker-on-fire-over-trump-wiretap-we-live-in-a-country-with-deeply-corrupt-institutions-video/

    Tucker Carlson unloaded on U.S. intelligence and the mainstream media Tuesday on Fox News, alleging that American institutions are “deeply corrupt.”

    WATCH at link above:

    Carlson mocked critics in a sarcastic voice saying, “Wiretapping? Come on. That’s tin foil hat stuff, it’s nuts!”

    The Daily Caller co-founder continued, “Now, in another time with more trustworthy institutions that would have been the end of the story. But we live in a country with deeply corrupt institutions…”

    Carlson recapped recent reports, stating, “According to a now report from CNN, Paul Manafort who for a time last year was Trump’s campaign chairman was wiretapped by the federal government both before and after the election.”

    Carlson recapped recent reports, stating, “According to a now report from CNN, Paul Manafort who for a time last year was Trump’s campaign chairman was wiretapped by the federal government both before and after the election.”

    “Manafort, it ought to be noted, had an apartment inside Trump Tower during that time so it’s virtually certain that surveillance of him would have included other members of the Trump campaign staff, maybe Trump himself,” he said.

    Carlson is referring to a recent report from CNN that shows that Manafort was wiretapped before the election by the federal government.

    Some see this as vindicating President Trump’s March tweets where he alleged wiretapping:

    Donald J. Trump  ✔ @realDonaldTrump
    How low has President Obama gone to tapp my phones during the very sacred election process. This is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick) guy!

    Obama's UN ambassador Samantha Power asked for hundreds of 'unmaskings' of Americans in classified material
    - right up until Trump's inauguration

    Former UN ambassador Samantha Power requested the 'unmasking' of Americans named in intelligence reports
    more than 260 times during her last year in office

    Former UN ambassador Samantha Power unmasked an average of one person each day business of 2016
    She sought the identity of 260 people mentioned in intelligence documents
    As a security council member, she was allowed to seek the identities of people mentioned in intelligence reports
    She is expected to testify on Capitol Hill in October
    The House Intelligence is pursuing Obama officials who sought identities of Trump operatives mentioned in intelligence reports
    It is also probing Russian interference in the presidential election and contacts with Trump associates
    Her lawyer says she was not involved in leaking classified material
    Congressional probers are examining both Trump campaign Russia ties and any improper or illegal unmaskings

    Former Obama administration UN ambassador Samantha Power requested the 'unmasking' of Americans named in intelligence reports more than 260 times during her last year in office, according to a new report.

    Power's total his more than one request per workday of 2016 – far exceeding the numbers typical of someone in her position, which in the past have come in the low single digits, according to a report by Fox News.  

    Unmasking occurs when a government official so-empowered requests the name of an American who appears in an intelligence repot be revealed.

    In Power's case, this activity extended up until shortly before Obama left office, according to the Fox report.

    House Intelligence Committee chairman Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) is part of his panel's inquiry into whether any officials engaged in political unmaskings to discredit Trump officials. Nunes removed himself from his panel's Russia probe after his trips to the White House where he viewed intelligence documents and reviewed unmaskings.  

    In July Nunes ,wrote Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats to complain about 'partisan' unmaskings.

    'We have found evidence that current and former government officials had easy access to U.S. person information and that it is possible that they used this information to achieve partisan political purposes, including the selective, anonymous leaking of such information,' Nunes wrote.

    He continued: 'The committee has learned that one official, whose position had no apparent intelligence related function, made hundreds of unmasking requests during the final year of the Obama administration.'

    The letter continued: 'Of those requests, only one offered a justification that was not boilerplate.'


    Power's lawyer, David Pressman, wrote: 'While serving as our Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Ambassador Power was also a member of the National Security Council responsible for advising the President on the full-range of threats confronting the United States. Any insinuation that Ambassador Power was involved in leaking classified information is absolutely false.'

    She is expected to testify on Capitol Hill next month.

    BOOM! Sharyl Attkisson: “It Looks Like Obama Did Spy on Trump Just Like He Apparently Did to Me”
    http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2017/09/boom-sharyl-attkisson-looks-like-obama-spy-trump-just-like-apparently/

    Her personal computer and CBS laptop were hacked after she began filing stories about Benghazi that were unflattering to the Obama administration. Attkisson wrote a New York Times bestseller documenting this called ‘Stonewalled’.

    On Wednesday, Attkisson wrote an Op-Ed for The Hill titled, “It looks like Obama did spy on Trump, just as he apparently did to me” in response to the CNN report that Obama’s FBI indeed wiretapped Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort.

    Attkisson said in her op-ed that many in the media are missing the bigger story with the wiretapping reports. The Obama administration spied on political opponents, journalists and members of Congress and asks if the intel agencies are indeed weaponized.

    She also points out a pattern that every time CIA Director John Brennan or DNI head James Clapper were caught spying, they would falsely deny such accusations.

    Attkisson points out that the media is happy to push propaganda for the government rather than report the truth:

    Then, as now, instead of getting the bigger story, some in the news media and quasi-news media published false and misleading narratives pushed by government interests. They implied the computer intrusions were the stuff of vivid imagination, conveniently dismissed forensic evidence from three independent examinations that they didn’t review.

    Attkisson concludes:

    Officials involved in the surveillance and unmasking of U.S. citizens have said their actions were legal and not politically motivated. And there are certainly legitimate areas of inquiry to be made by law enforcement and intelligence agencies. But look at the patterns. It seems that government monitoring of journalists, members of Congress and political enemies — under multiple administrations — has become more common than anyone would have imagined two decades ago. So has the unmasking of sensitive and highly protected names by political officials.

    During the 2016 Presidential Election, the biggest story became how Russia “hacked” the election. The “17 intelligence agencies” that Hillary Rodham Clinton cited all relied on word from a contracted company, Crowdstrike.

    Crowdstrike is a technology company that specializes in cyber-security. Not only is there conflict of interest with Crowdstrike receiving payments, campaign data shows some incredible correlations with the payments that were made.

    All payments cited below are part of the Federal Election Committee data of campaign spending on the www.fec.gov website.

    The first payments made were preemptive measures on May 5th, 2016 when the DNC was looking to figure out where the breach of security was. Payments made on May 5th, 2016 of $7,650.00 and $1,462.50 were likely paid for Crowdstrike to install their Falcon software, a stellar technology security suite that would identify any internal or external security breach.


    The final email on Wikileaks from the DNC is dated May 25th, 2016. Crowdstrike would have had complete knowledge of the party that ripped the emails from the server.

    The next payment that was made to Crowdstrike occurred on July 11th, 2016 for the amount of $98,849.84. The relationship to this date happens to be the day after DNC Data Director of New Voter Registration Seth Rich was murdered.

    The final payment to date is August 3rd, 2016. This coincides with another murder in the District of Columbia. Shawn Lucas, who died on August 2nd of last year, was the DNC Process Server and close friend of Seth Rich. The payment on August 3rd included two checks, one for $113,645.77 and the other for $4,275.00.

    We find it highly coincidental that both of these payments came within 24 hours of two high profile murders in Washington D.C., which both have connection to the DNC.

    Updates:
    The initial payment was referring to Technology Consulting and Technology Infrastructure Maintenance, linked here.

    TOM FITTON: “Mueller is Setting Up His Own Justice Department, Shut it Down”
    http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2017/09/tom-fitton-mueller-setting-justice-department-shut/

    September 22, 2017
    MISSION CREEP

    President of conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch, Tom Fitton has repeatedly called for the Mueller witch hunt of Trump and his associates to be shut down as it is unconstitutional and unsupervised.

    Mueller’s team of lawyers is so big and powerful now that Fitton described it as the Special Counsel’s ‘own Justice Department’. This is all thanks to AG Jeff Sessions recusing himself.

    In response to a Daily Beast article titled “Bob Mueller Brings on ‘Tough’ Guy Stephen Kelly to Handle Capitol Hill”, Fitton said, “Bob Mueller setting up his own Justice Department. Shut it down.”

    The Daily Beast article says Mueller has now brought on a liaison to Capitol Hill:

    Having hired a host of seasoned federal prosecutors for his probe of the president’s associates, Bob Mueller has now brought on a liaison to Capitol Hill.

    Stephen Kelly, formerly the longtime congressional affairs chief for the FBI, has joined the probe, according to several sources familiar with his new role.

    “Stephen Kelly is exactly who I would hire if I wanted to share as little information with Congress as possible,” said a Hill staffer who has interacted with Kelly in his new role as Mueller’s congressional liaison.

    Robert Mueller also just hired his SEVENTEENTH liberal hack lawyer to investigate Trump. The latest hack is an Obama/Hillary donor.

    Fitton is right. Mueller has essentially set up his own Justice Department; he’s the one doing all the investigating while Trump’s Justice Department sits idly by doing absolutely NOTHING.

    Special Counsel Robert Mueller added his 16th radical left-wing lawyer to his team in early August as he continues to investigate Trump’s personal finances under the guise of a ‘Russia probe’. Greg Andres is the 16th lawyer to be added to Mueller’s team. He worked under Eric ‘Fast N’ Furious’ Holder from 2010 to 2012. No bias here though. This is a completely fair investigation as Paul Ryan says.

    Here is a look at the 15 other attorneys who will investigate Trump.

    Rush Atkinson, an attorney on detail from the Criminal Division’s Fraud Section at the Department of Justice
    — Donated $200 to Clinton in 2016
    Peter Carr – DOJ spokesman under Barack Obama.
    Andrew Goldstein, a public corruption prosecutor on detail from the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Southern District of New York
    — Worked under Trump-basher Preet Bharara in the liberal New York southern district.
    Adam Jed, an appellate attorney on detail from DOJ’s Civil Division.
    — Defended Obamacare at the DOJ.
    Rober Mueller – Special Counsel Team leader.
    — Best friend to fired leaker James Comey.
    Lisa Page, an attorney on detail from the FBI’s Office of the General Counsel and a former trial attorney with the Criminal Division’s Organized Crime and Gang Section
    — Investigated Ukrainian oligarch Dmitry Firtash, a one-time business partner of former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort, at the DOJ.
    Elizabeth Prelogar, an appellate attorney on detail from the Office of the Solicitor General.
    –Fluent in Russian; former law clerk to Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Elena Kagan.
    James Quarles, a former partner at WilmerHale and a former assistant special prosecutor for the Watergate Special Prosecution Force.
    –Former assistant special prosecutor on the Watergate Special Prosecution Force.
    Jeannie Rhee, a former partner at WilmerHale who has served in the Office of Legal Counsel at DOJ and as an assistant U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia.
    — Rhee is a Clinton Foundation Lawyer and former Deputy Assistant Attorney General in the Office of Legal Counsel under Barack Obama.
    Brandon Van Grack, an attorney on detail from the Justice Department’s National Security Division.
    — Led a grand jury inquiry in Northern Virginia scrutinizing former Trump associate Michael Flynn’s foreign lobbying.
    Andrew Weissmann, who is on detail from the Criminal Division’s Fraud Section and who has served as general counsel at the FBI and as an assistant U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of New York.
    — Weissmann donated $2,300 to the Obama Victory Fund in 2008, $2,000 to the DNC in 2006 and at least $2,300 to the Clinton campaign in 2007.
    Aaron Zebley, a former partner at WilmerHale who has previously served with Mueller at the FBI and has served as an assistant U.S. attorney in the Eastern District of Virginia.
    — Worked with Robert Mueller at the WilmerHale firm.
    These other Mueller attorneys have less conspicuous political leanings:
    Aaron Zelinsky, an attorney on detail from the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the District of Maryland.
    — Worked under Assistant AG Rod Rosenstein in Maryland.
    Zainab Ahmad, a top national security prosecutor on detail from U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Eastern District of New York.
    Michael Dreeben, an appellate attorney on detail from the Office of the Solicitor General, described by former colleagues as one of the brightest criminal law experts of the past two generations.

    Trump is an innocent man and he is being investigated by almost 20 left-wing lawyers while Hillary Clinton is freely walking around after decades of corruption and proof of pay-to-play while she was Secretary of State. Let that sink in.

    Newt: Frightened About the Future of Freedom, 1801

    Synopsis: Former Speaker of the House, Newt Gingrich, painted a dire picture last night on Hannity that every American needs to hear. America – the hope of freedom for the world - is under direct assault by a globalist criminal cartel - known loosely as the Deep State - that has seized control of the levers of power and is determined to impose a two-tiered, tyrannical justice system from which this nation may never escape.
