IG Report Redacts Dates of Carter Page FISA Applications - That's An Important Detail, HERE'S WHY


Amid the predictive discussions by those who have followed the three-year background of the potential DOJ and FBI FISA issues, there was one very specific aspect CTH was looking for: Would the IG report redact the dates of the Carter Page FISA application and renewals? 
We got that answer today, and that answer, unfortunately, is yes:
Ask yourself what is the national security value in hiding those dates? Why does the DOJ need to hide them? Unfortunately the answer highlights an institutional decision. On its face the dates seem like an overly granular question; perhaps even a small detail that few would notice. 
However, for CTH readers that little detail exposes so much. In 2018 Main Justice made a very specific decision, a very specific lie, that once told would forever set them on a path – from which there is no return. It was during a time between July and December 2018 that CTH realized the DOJ had handcuffed themselves to a cover story; and that cover story foretold future conduct.
GO READ THE WHOLE THING.

IMPEACHMENT HINDENBURG


The U.S. attorney who is conducting a wide-ranging investigation of the origins of the Trump-Russia probe released a rare statement Monday saying he disagrees with conclusions of the so-called FISA report — after DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz found in that review that the probe’s launch largely complied with DOJ and FBI policies.
“Based on the evidence collected to date, and while our investigation is ongoing, last month we advised the Inspector General that we do not agree with some of the report’s conclusions as to predication and how the FBI case was opened,” U.S. Attorney John Durham said in a statement. . . .
“I have the utmost respect for the mission of the Office of Inspector General and the comprehensive work that went into the report prepared by Mr. Horowitz and his staff,” Durham said. “However, our investigation is not limited to developing information from within component parts of the Justice Department. Our investigation has included developing information from other persons and entities, both in the U.S. and outside of the U.S.”
As Horowitz has conducted his review of DOJ actions during the Russia probe, Durham, the U.S. attorney for Connecticut, has also been conducting a wider inquiry into alleged misconduct and alleged improper government surveillance on the Trump campaign during the 2016 presidential election.
Fox News reported in October that Durham’s ongoing probe has transitioned into a full-fledged criminal investigation.
Meanwhile, Attorney General William Barr ripped the FBI’s “intrusive” investigation after the release of Horowitz’s review, saying it was launched based on the “thinnest of suspicions.”
“The Inspector General’s report now makes clear that the FBI launched an intrusive investigation of a U.S. presidential campaign on the thinnest of suspicions that, in my view, were insufficient to justify the steps taken,” Barr said in a statement.
Barr expressed frustration that the FBI continued investigating the Trump campaign, even as “exculpatory” information came to the light.

THE HOUSE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE SET TO CHARGE TRUMP WITH TREASON? What Will You Do For An Encore?

The House Judiciary Committee are set to charge President Trump with treason. Yes, gentle reader, you read that right: T-R-E-A-S-O-N. These people are truly sick. They are doing more than just playing games; they are playing with fire, here. 
If I had the ability to hold back and not slam my fist into Jerrold Nadler's gaping maw, I would certainly displace the perpetual slab of pastrami with a microphone and try to get him on record to answer the question "do you realize treason is a capital crime?" 
Okay, I get it. You turds are doing anything and everything you can to sabotage the President while covering up for your own crimes of sabotaging 2016 and then Trump's nascent presidency, which for the record, come within a red nether-hair's breadth of actual dictionary definition treason. 
Meanwhile, we still have hearings set for today, which you gave the Republicans on the committee essentially zero time to prepare for, dumping thousands of pages of evidence at the last minute. Not that that would matter since the committees are a farce of both fairness and legal precedent. 
The Democrats have ensnared themselves in their own trap. For over three years, everything they have done to rig the election and then sabotage this president have failed, and spectacularly so. And since impeachment was promised even before Trump took the oath of office, impeachment is what they are going to have to deliver. But invoking treason is truly crossing a line.
"Treason": House Judiciary Committee Report Implicates Trump in Ultimate Crime
The House Judiciary Committee report released Saturday on the legal and constitutional framework for impeaching President Donald Trump includes a discussion of the most serious crime listed in the Constitution: treason. 
Citing the constitutional provision that impeachment applies to “Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors,” the report hints throughout that President Trump might have committed treason against the United States. 
The Constitution specifically defines treason in Article III, Section 3: “Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.” 
The House Judiciary Committee report, however, expands that definition to include what it calls “betrayal,” and declares: “Although the Framers did not intend impeachment for good faith disagreements on matters of diplomacy, they were explicit that betrayal of the Nation through schemes with foreign powers justified that remedy.” 
The phrase “schemes with foreign powers” is sufficiently vague to include the “quid pro quo” plan that Democrats allege the president attempted to make with Ukraine, trading U.S. aid for investigation into a political opponent.
 Treason, huh?

Well, now that you mention it.

The Democrats really may have stepped into their own trap.

The FBI Is On The Case, Say It Was "Terrorism (i.e. Jihadism), There Was One Shooter, and Essentially Say NO ONE ELSE IS A SUSPECT

"OUR INVESTIGATION HAS NOT LED US TO ANY INFORMATION THAT INDICATES ANY CREDIBLE THREATS TO OUR COMMUNITY"

Well, it could be that earlier reports that there were 2 others FILMING the mass shooting were wrong.

It could be that earlier reports that the shooter held a mass-shooting watch party with his friends the night before were wrong.

Or, it could be that, as has happened in the past, the FBI is simply not up to speed somehow.

Which are you betting on?

Bill Barr Indicts 8 Including Mueller Top Witness for Funneling Millions in Foreign Donations to Adam Schiff, Hillary Clinton and Top Senate Democrats

Is Hillary Clinton a Moderate Muslim?
Earlier today, an indictment was unsealed against the CEO of an online payment processing company, and seven others, charging them with conspiring to make and conceal conduit and excessive campaign contributions, and related offenses, during the U.S. presidential election in 2016 and thereafter. Assistant Attorney General Brian A. Benczkowski of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division and Assistant Director in Charge Timothy R. Slater of the FBI’s Washington Field Office made the announcement.   
A federal grand jury in the District of Columbia indicted Ahmad “Andy” Khawaja, 48, of Los Angeles, California, on Nov. 7, 2019, along with George Nader, Roy Boulos, Rudy Dekermenjian, Mohammad “Moe” Diab, Rani El-Saadi, Stevan Hill and Thayne Whipple. 
The 53 count indictment charges Khawaja with two counts of conspiracy, three counts of making conduit contributions, three counts of causing excessive contributions, 13 counts of making false statements, 13 counts of causing false records to be filed, and one count of obstruction of a federal grand jury investigation. 
Nader is charged with conspiring with Khawaja to make conduit campaign contributions, and related offenses. 
Boulos, Dekermenjian, Diab, El-Saadi, Hill, and Whipple are charged with conspiring with Khawaja and each other to make conduit campaign contributions and conceal excessive contributions, and related offenses. 
According to the indictment, from March 2016 through January 2017, Khawaja conspired with Nader to conceal the source of more than $3.5 million in campaign contributions, directed to political committees associated with a candidate for President of the United States in the 2016 election. 
By design, these contributions appeared to be in the names of Khawaja, his wife, and his company. In reality, they allegedly were funded by Nader. Khawaja and Nader allegedly made these contributions in an effort to gain influence with high-level political figures, including the candidate. 
As Khawaja and Nader arranged these payments, Nader allegedly reported to an official from a foreign government about his efforts to gain influence. 
The indictment also alleges that, from March 2016 through 2018, Khawaja conspired with Boulos, Dekermenjian, Diab, El-Saadi, Hill, and Whipple to conceal Khawaja’s excessive contributions, which totaled more than $1.8 million, to various political committees. Among other things, these contributions allegedly allowed Khawaja to host a private fundraiser for a presidential candidate in 2016 and a private fundraising dinner for an elected official in 2018. 
The indictment further alleges that, from June 2019 through July 2019, Khawaja obstructed a grand jury investigation of this matter in the District of Columbia. Knowing that a witness had been called to testify before the grand jury, Khawaja allegedly provided that witness with false information about Nader and his connection to Khawaja’s company. Boulos, Diab, Hill, and Whipple also are charged with obstructing the grand jury’s investigation by lying to the FBI. Currently, Nader is in federal custody on other charges.
Nader was one of Mueller’s top witnesses and he is a top Democrat donor and convicted child molester.

Telford abuse victim was raped by 500 men from 11 – but cops chose to prosecute her
Let down by authorities after a seven-year ordeal, Jennifer tells the Sunday Mirror for the first time how it was she who was left with a criminal record. Robbed of her childhood, degraded by hundreds of abusers and betrayed by the authorities she ran to for help. 
The horrifying seven-year ordeal of sex trafficking victim Jennifer today marks a new low in the Telford abuse scandal . Jennifer – not her real name – tells the Sunday Mirror for the first time how she was raped by over 500 men from the age off 11 – yet she is the one left with a criminal record. 
She was gang raped, often in her school uniform, trafficked and held at gunpoint. Her nightmare left her so broken she attempted suicide. At just 16, she feared for her life as one rapist battered her and shoved gravel in her mouth to silence her cries. 
For four years, until she was 19, she fell under the control of a man who hawked her around like a piece of meat. Jennifer claims police refused to intervene and repeatedly arrested her for prostitution from the age of 16 to 19, despite her plea she was being exploited.

New York man, 35, who was charged for offering Twitter users $500 to kill ICE agents is ACQUITTED by federal jury because his tweet is ‘protected speech’ under the First Amendment

Poor Little Pussy-Assed Brandon Ziobrowski,
He Had a Tough Year 
After He Solicited The Murder of ICE Agents
A man who tweeted that he would pay $500 to anyone who would kill a federal immigration officer was acquitted by a jury on Friday in a case that questioned whether social media threats were protected by free speech. 
Brandon Ziobrowski, 35, of New York City was cleared by a federal jury of using interstate and foreign commerce to transmit a threat after a week of testimony at the US District Court in Boston. If convicted, Ziobrowski faced up to five years in jail and a potential 250,000 fine. 
Ziobrowski said he was relieved the ordeal was over after the verdict was presented in court. ‘It seemed like the right verdict. It’s been a horrible year. I’m glad its over,’ he said as he walked out of court with his family and lawyer.

"SAYS"



Read it:

Trump says, "King Salman says ..."

This is not Trump speak.

I can't think of a time where Trump talked about what another person "says", unless he thought the person was lying.

When Trump is praising someone, he says, "They agree with me."

When he is working out a deal with someone, or coming to a meeting of the minds, he will say, "We agreed," or, "We are working together."

But here Trump says, "King Salman says."

That means Trump thinks Salman is lying.

And that does not bode well for the Saudis.
