Demand Answers. Top CIA, FBI Spies Still Haven’t Been Questioned On Russia Hoax.

Nothing to see here folks. Time erases everything.

It’s all a ruse.

Believe me, former Obama administration officials and those who worked with them in the FBI, along with the Department of Justice, are counting on the fact that the American people get exhausted of this Russia hoax tale. They, however, are not. They are still weaving their own narrative with their friends in the media. Which is what former FBI Special Agent Peter Strzok recently did on NBC. As they spin their own lies, they expect us to forget what we already know: they set up a duly elected president and trashed the U.S. constitution.

They expect everyone to buy their half-ass truths and their flat out lies. Don’t be fooled. They will continue to “deny everything, admit nothing and make counter accusations.” This is what they are trained to do.

In an effort to gain our trust back they will throw several underlings under the bus and then ride off into the sunset with book deals, cable news contributor deals and whatever else they can do to maximize their profit off of the pain they caused America.

So what you have to ask yourself is what have both senior Republican and Democratic lawmakers stayed clear of and what are they not willing to do at their so-called theatrical hearings. What are they covering up because remember this isn’t just about Democrats. It’s about the establishment and how they protect one-another.

Why are lawmakers – both Republicans and Democrats -avoiding to call certain key players to testify at hearings? I question why these lawmakers seem to get amnesia with certain facts? Who are the people those in charge of investigating the Russia hoax are not bringing forward to question in one of the most egregious internal actions against a sitting U.S. president?

For one, it’s all the people that can expose what actually happened for what it really was: an operation against a U.S. president, not conducted by an enemy state but by a deep state bent on keeping and protecting the establishment safe.

It is also to protect those in power that were part of covering up and aiding those who weaponized the federal law enforcement and the intelligence apparatus. The evidence gathered over the past three years by members of the House who weren’t afraid to fight back, like House Intelligence Committee ranking member Devin Nunes, along with former congressman and now White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, Rep. Jim Jordan, Rep. Andy Biggs, among many others, should shatter our unquestioning belief that the American system isn’t susceptible to these banana republic tactics.

It is, unfortunately. It has been a battle every day to get the truth out and hold perpetrators responsible for their actions.

Ask yourself, other than former FBI Lawyer Kevin Clinesmith, who helped alter information on former Trump campaign advisor Carter Page’s Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Application (FISA) warrant so the bureau could spy on Page, whose been charged?

How many times have we heard former Attorney General Jeff Sessions and current Attorney General William Barr say they were close and that something was going to happen, only for it to be less than sixty-days out from the next Presidential election and nothing has been done.

If former Vice President and Democratic nominee Joe Biden wins, nothing will ever be done. Do you think that has weighed into what’s happening inside the Justice Department?

What about Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee Lindsey Graham? He promised for years that he was going to get to the bottom of it and call witnesses that mattered – where are those witnesses?

Who cares what former acting Attorney General Sally Yates had to say? She pretty much said what we’ve already heard in her previous testimony. Why didn’t Sen. Graham call Stephan Halper to testify? Why not ask former CIA Director John Brennan about his role in what transpired in London and how much did he know.

Earlier this year when Fox News host Maria Bartiromo asked Nunes which agency, the FBI or CIA, was more likely to have lined up confidential sources to make contact with members of the Trump campaign?

“Well, as you know, we have jurisdiction over both FBI and CIA and what they do overseas. We have lots of information about FBI people going overseas and doing things, we don’t really have any information from CIA,” Nunes said on on Sunday Morning Futures.

After all, it was Halper who was spying on both Page, as well as former campaign aide George Papadopolous and all of this occurred overseas. Both men were being recorded by the overweight and longtime CIA connected Cambridge professor, who also allegedly smeared former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn and British academic and intelligence historian Svetlana Lokhova. It was Halper who brought them all overseas and made it possible for them to become targets of the U.S. intelligence community, as well as other allied intelligence agencies overseas. Heck, for that matter, they were also targets of our foreign adversaries but that isn’t being questioned. Why not?

What about former head of MI6 Sir Richard Dearlove’s involvement with former British spy Christopher Steele, who was being paid by the Hillary Clinton Campaign and the Democratic National Committee to spy on the Trump campaign. What did Dearlove know? Why hasn’t Hillary Clinton been called to testify about what she knew and why haven’t directors of the DNC been called to testify about what they knew?

After all, they were sending campaign money through their cutout law firm Perkins Coie to pay the private firm Fusion GPS to spy on Trump. In fact, Fusion GPS, hired Nellie Ohr, an Russia intelligence expert, whose husband Bruce Ohr was a top official inside the DOJ, while she helped gather information on members of the Trump campaign. In fact, the Ohr’s were friends with Steele, and Bruce operated as a backdoor channel for the FBI after Steele was let go as a source for leaking to the press.

Do you see how complicated and murky this is all getting? So you see why these senior government officials feel they can get away with all of this? They believe they can because my friends, they have already done this in the past. This is not their first rodeo but this is the first time they’ve actually be caught.

What about the recent interview on NBC with fired FBI Special Agent Strzok, who along with FBI agent Joe Pientka, cornered Flynn at the White House in a surprise interview in January, 2017. Remember, this was the set up. Fired FBI Director James Comey even said so in a public interview where he laughed about it and the disorganization in the Trump administration. Later, hand written notes from senior FBI officials suggested they wanted to catch Flynn “in a lie” or “get him fired.”

Strzok was fired for lying and did so with the IG. His character is tarnished and so is his interview with NBC. He is only telling you what he wants you to believe.

He acts as if the American public is too dumb to remember what he and other senior officials did before, during and after the investigation into Trump.

Those in the FBI, including Comey and fired Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, along with their cohorts in crime stomped all over the U.S. Constitution’s Fourth Amendment and I’m certain this wasn’t the first time. These type of people believe that they know what’s best for you and that the ends justify the means. Trust me, I’ve heard them say it at events in Washington D.C.

They have a disdain for patriots and the middle class American worker. They just don’t think we’re smart enough.

Ask yourself why only Clinesmith’s been prosecuted so far for the FISA alterations and omissions that Strzok said were simple mistakes that led to the FBI’s spying on Page’s communications.

DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz identified another far more egregious violator of the FISA. It was former FBI Special Agent Stephen Somma, from the bureau’s New York Field Office. He was identified as as “Case Agent 1” in Horowitz’s report that was released in December, 2019.  

Horowitz stated that Somma was “primarily responsible for some of the most significant errors and omissions” during the process of obtaining FISA warrants to wiretap Page in 2016 and 2017. In fact, at that time the IG confirmed the FBI relied heavily on Steele’s unverified dossier when pursuing the secret surveillance. 

Strzok expects us to believe this was all a misunderstanding and simple mistakes made by the fall guy Clinesmith?

In fact, it was Somma and an unnamed Staff Operations Specialist “were the original Crossfire Hurricane team members who had primary responsibility over the Carter Page investigation.”

Why haven’t Graham and other senior Senate lawmakers called these folks to testify?

In fact, the FBI documents reveal that in August 2016, Somma was told he had “not yet presented enough information to support a FISA application targeting Carter Page.” He then told Horowitz’s investigators what they did next. It was the “that the team’s receipt of the reporting from Steele [in September] supplied missing information in terms of what Page may have been doing during his July 2016 visit to Moscow and provided enough information on Page’s recent activities that [Somma] thought would satisfy the Office of Intelligence.” 

In fact, like we’ve discussed in previous stories the FBI purposefully did not include information that would have cleared Page. This information would have shown that Page was in fact an asset and cooperated fully with the CIA.

“We found no information indicating that the FBI provided the Office of Intelligence with the documents containing Page’s denials before finalizing the first FISA application,” Horowitz wrote. “Instead, Case Agent 1 provided a summary that did not contain those denials to the OI Attorney and that the OI Attorney relied upon that summary in drafting the first application.”

It’s not going to be easy to break free of all the lies being spewed by these government officials.

They are more angry with the American people for voting for Trump than with Trump himself. They committed some of the most appalling actions against the American people, the Constitution.

The FBI was mired in corruption at its highest levels and it has tainted the good name of agents who want nothing more than to see it gutted and cleaned out.

We should not get tired of asking questions and investigating what actually happened. Do not forget, we the American people, employee these bureaucrats to follow the law and do what’s right.

If they broke the law they need to pay the price. It’s just that simple.

Cuomo says he’ll ‘fully cooperate’ with NY AG’s review of sexual harassment claims

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) said Wednesday that he will “fully cooperate” with the state attorney general’s independent review into sexual harassment allegations made against the currently scandal-ridden governor, saying, “I fully support a woman’s right to come forward.”

Last Wednesday, Lindsey Boylan, who served in his administration for over three years, accused Cuomo of suggesting to her on a 2017 flight that they play strip poker, inappropriate touching, and kissing her on the lips without her consent.

Following Boylan’s accusations, 25-year-old Charlotte Bennett alleged the governor indicated interest in having an affair with her while she was serving in his administration as a health policy adviser. In a Saturday New York Times report, Bennett told the newspaper that Cuomo asked her if she had “ever been with an older man,” adding that “age doesn’t matter” in relationships.

At Wednesday’s press briefing, the Empire State governor addressed the accusations leveled against him over the past seven days by three women and New York Attorney General Letitia James’ (D) independent review into those claims, which she announced on Monday was formally proceeding.

“As you probably know, the attorney general is doing an independent review, and I will fully cooperate with that review,” Cuomo said at the beginning of his statement. “Now, the lawyers say I shouldn’t say anything when you have a pending review until that review is over. I understand that, I’m a lawyer, too. But, I want New Yorkers to hear from me directly on this.”

“First, I fully support a woman’s right to come forward,” the governor began. “And I think it should be encouraged in every way. I now understand that I acted in a way that made people feel uncomfortable. It was unintentional and I truly and deeply apologize for it. I feel awful about it, and frankly I am embarrassed by it, and that’s not easy to say. But that’s the truth.”

This echoes what Cuomo said in a Sunday statement about the allegations, in which he stated he “may have been insensitive” during his tenure but charged his accusers of misinterpreting his actions, saying, “I acknowledge some of the things I have said have been misinterpreted as an unwanted flirtation… I am truly sorry about that.”

During his Wednesday remarks, Cuomo iterated “I never touched anyone inappropriately,” repeated that sentence, then said “I never knew at the time that I was making anyone feel uncomfortable” and repeated that one too.

“And I certainly never, ever meant to offend anyone or hurt anyone or cause anyone any pain. That is the last thing I would ever want to do,” he continued. “I ask the people of this state to wait for the facts from the attorney general’s report before forming an opinion. Get the facts, please, before forming an opinion.”

“I also want you to know that I have learned from what has been an incredibly difficult situation for me as well as other people, and I’ve learned an important lesson,” the governor said at the end of his statement. “I’m sorry. I’m sorry for whatever pain I caused anyone, I never intended it, and I will be the better for this experience.”

Amid Boylan and Bennett’s allegations, another report of Cuomo sexually harassing a woman has cropped up. On Monday, a woman named Anna Ruch accused the governor of placing his hands on her cheeks—without her consent—at a 2019 wedding reception and asking if he could kiss her. A photograph of the two together at the event has also been circulating on social media.

Asked at Wednesday’s briefing about the pictures that have resurfaced of him being touchy with people, particularly that of him and Ruch, the governor claimed that it is his way of greeting people.

“I understand the opinion of—and feelings of—Ms. Ruch,” Cuomo said. “You can find hundreds of pictures of me making the same gesture with hundreds of people—women, children, men, etc. You can go find hundreds of pictures of me kissing people. […] It is my usual and customary way of greeting.”

Moreover, the governor said that his father, former Gov. Mario Cuomo, would do the same thing.

“By the way, it was my father’s way of greeting people,” Cuomo said, explaining, “You’re the governor of the state, you want people to feel comfortable, you want to reach out to them.”

He also mentioned that he kisses and hugs legislators and noted that at an event in Queens the other day he hugged pastors and state assembly members.

Furthermore, the governor said that his intent “doesn’t matter,” saying, “What it matters is if anybody was offended by it.”

“But if they were offended by it, then it was wrong,” he added, going on to say that if they were offended or hurt by it, he apologizes.
