Obama CIA Deputy Director: Trump Shouldn’t Have Been Disrespectful About Killing of Baghdadi

President Donald Trump was triumphant in announcing the killing of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

Among other remarks, Trump described the event, “He died after running into a dead-end tunnel, whimpering and crying and screaming all the way.”

Apparently descriptions like that were too much for former Obama CIA deputy director Mike Morell.

While he praised the action on “Face the Nation,” he and criticized Trump’s response, according to the Washington Examiner.

“You don’t want a locker room kind of feel to this,” said Morell. “That was the one thing we worked really hard on after the bin Laden raid, is don’t make those kinds of statements, because it does inspire other people.”

Morell, who was widely expected to become Hillary Clinton’s CIA director if she had won the 2016 election, said it was troubling that Trump said he wanted to show footage of Baghdadi’s death to deter his followers.

“I think it’s all right to say we used DNA matching to figure out that it was him,” said Morell. “But to actually talk about body parts and actually bringing them back with us, right, so that we have them here with us I think is going too far.”

Retired Adm. James Winnefeld then said the Obama administration was respectful of the body of Osama Bin Laden by burying him at sea. He also said you didn’t want to do things to further incite ISIS.

First of all you want to have the body to confirm the fact.

But second, isn’t this the administration that was so overly concerned about offending people they couldn’t bring themselves to say “radical Islamic terrorism?” The administration that ignored the rise of ISIS even as people were warning them in 2014 that the hole they left by the pullout was encouraging the rise. Thousands of people died because of their failure to properly address the danger. And then, once the danger was known, they were ineffective in large measure in response. They were always afraid of who they might offend. It took Trump to come in to defeat the physical caliphate.

They’re concerned about how Trump is phrasing killing Baghdadi? Can ISIS hate us more than they already do? Are they joking?

This was the world’s number one terrorist, responsible for the oppression, murder, beheading and rape of thousands, responsible for terrorism all around the world. Sorry if celebrating that offends you, liberals.

Speaking of respect, what did Morell think when his Secretary of State at the time made these very respectful remarks in 2011 about the killing of Muammar al-Gaddafi, when he was deputy director?

Somehow, his criticism of that response has gone missing…

A little Saturday discomfort for you.

James Clapper, who is a paid shill over at CNN now, was brought on to his own network by Anderson Cooper to comment on an investigation he’s the target off. If you think that probably doesn’t match up with journalistic ethics, you are probably right. But this is the same network that brought on Andrew McCabe the same day to talk about this topic without even disclosing he’s suing the DOJ and is also a target. So ethics aren’t much of a thing over there.

Cooper starts to toss softballs at Clapper and he becomes visibly shaken, saying he doesn’t understand why he’s under investigation. For context, Clapper had only found out about the criminal investigation 20 minutes prior to this hit.

The eyes are darting, he’s stumbling over his words. “Uh, uh, uh” can be heard multiple times. This is a guy who’s not comfortable in his own skin right now. I can imagine I wouldn’t feel too chipper commenting on national TV about the DOJ investigating me as well.

Let me point a few things out.

One, the idea that this investigation is politically timed is nonsense. Clapper makes that assertion and Cooper offers zero push back because of course he doesn’t. The reality is that the Durham investigation started long before impeachment fever 2019. And the escalation to a criminal investigation follows the finishing of a years in the making IG report, not the impeachment inquiry. If anything, the timing of the whistle-blower and Schiff’s circus seem far more politically timed than the investigations that predate it.

Two, Clapper knows exactly why he’s under investigation. He has always been suspected of leaking the classified briefing given to Donald Trump on the Steele dossier to CNN. I wrote an entire piece several months ago about Jake Tapper’s denials not adding up on the matter. There are some serious questions and inconsistencies there. There’s also the fact that Clapper probably lied about his knowledge of the investigation. The idea that he didn’t even know it existed prior to Trump taking office doesn’t begin to pass the smell test. We have texts from Peter Stzok and Lisa Page saying that everything was being run from the White House. Clapper was the ODNI in that administration. He knew.

CNN continues to be a joke by employing Clapper as an unbiased analyst, but that’s not surprise to anyone. Meanwhile, I’m enjoying seeing these guys squirm a bit now that the shoe is on the other foot.

Democrats Soil Themselves At News of the Barr-Durham Criminal Investigation

Westlake Legal Group brennan-scowling-620x317 Democrats Soil Themselves At News of the Barr-Durham Criminal Investigation Russia Investigaiton Richard Blumenthal Politics Mike Flynn mark warner john durham John Brennan Jerry Nadler James Clapper Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story FBI doj democrats cia bill barr Allow Media Exception adam schiff

As I reported yesterday, the Barr-Durham probe into the origins of the Russia investigation has now transitioned into a full blown criminal investigation. What this means is the ability to compel testimony, empanel a grand jury, and subpoena documents. Before this change, cooperation was essentially voluntary.

There are some dots to connect here, which while still speculative, are becoming clearer as the days pass. This change to a criminal investigation came at exactly the same time the Inspector General announced his report was nearly ready for release. It’s fair to assume that it likely contains some criminal referrals. There’s also the news that broke earlier today that Lisa Page helped edit and retroactively date Flynn’s interview 302s. Was something illegal done with that? To the layman, it certainly seems improper and it’s a trail that will likely be followed.

Aside from the details, much of which have been reported by RedState over the past few days, one of the more humorous aspects of all this is seeing Democrats begin to soil themselves at the thought of possible corruption dealing with the Trump-Russia investigation.

Let’s start with the committee chairs at the forefront right now.

Yes, that’s Jerry Nadler and Adam Schiff, who are currently leading highly partisan investigations of the President complaining that Bill Barr is somehow a partisan. Keep in mind as well that John Durham is Barr’s top guy here and that he was appointed by Eric Holder to prosecute torture cases. He’s also got a history of mob busting. In other words, Durham is as far from a partisan as you’ll find at the DOJ. Democrats are purposely not attacking him directly, instead going after Barr, but the fact is that Durham is the one running this investigation on the ground.

Mark Warner, also known as Republican Sen. Burr’s boss, chimed in.

Notice the indication here that corruption should be brushed aside because it may somehow jeopardize “key international intelligence partnership.” He doesn’t expound of course, but his complaint seems rather hollow. If those partnerships include foul behavior, then they need to be jeopardized and if they are so weak that they can’t simply answer questions, then they weren’t worth much to begin with.

Barr has been before Congress many times. I’m sure he’d be happy to go again and embarrass those questioning him.

Here’s Dick Blumenthal, famous for lying about his service in Vietnam, ranting a bit.

Are you starting to see the trend? These people are nervous and their responses actually may be changing my mind a bit about whether something is going to come from this. People are starting to lawyer up and the political ramifications are obviously not good for Democrats. I do not think Durham would have moved to a criminal investigation if he didn’t have evidence in hand.

I’m old enough to remember when Democrats loved investigations until they suddenly didn’t. Many are on record asserting that if someone has nothing to hide, they should welcome being investigated. That was a very common theme throughout the Mueller ordeal. Now that the Obama administration is the target, including figures like Brennan, Clapper, and Comey, the flailing and consternation has begun.

The media are obviously losing it as well, doing their level best to the lay the groundwork for an “improper bias” narrative involving Barr’s work. You could see that in the Times report on this change last night. It’s all nonsense and should be ignored. While the left are going to do everything they can to muddy the waters, a lot of people are sleeping a little worse tonight.

Sebastian Gorka Detects Something Strange about John Brennan’s Twitter Account

Radio host Sebastian Gorka spotted something very unusual about former CIA Director John Brennan’s twitter account today. Gorka tweeted, “Why hasn’t @BarackObama’s chief bagman @JohnBrennan not appeared on Social Media for 9 days now?”

Brennan typically posts at least every day or two, usually to take a jab at Trump or one of his associates. But he’s gone quiet.

I know what might explain it. It’s been a week since NBC reported that Attorney General William Barr and U.S. Attorney John Durham planned to expand their investigation and were said to be interested in interviewing Brennan and his colleague, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper.

That had to be a blow and I’ll bet social media is just about the last thing on his mind.

I guess that’s what happens when you interfere in a U.S. election. Then, when you don’t get quite the result you were shooting for, you decide to do whatever it takes to overturn it. Not good for the soul John.

Oooh! I’m looking back at some of his previous tweets. Most of them are directed toward President Trump.

He does include several positive comments. Actually, he praises Mitt “Pierre Delecto” Romney for his courage and integrity! He writes, “How many other Republican Senators are ready to show the courage, integrity, & principled position of Senator Romney?”

Hopefully none.

He concludes with, “Thank you, Senator, for putting our Nation & our Constitution above party politics & the corrupt behavior of Donald Trump.”

In another tweet, he congratulates former National Security Advisor Susan Rice on her new book and commends her for her values. Did he catch what Susan said this week about Sen. Graham? Classy lady.

I bet Brennan was really rocked last night when he heard that Durham’s administrative review had shifted into a criminal investigation. At least he didn’t go on television to explain it all to us like his buddy, Andrew McCabe.

We may not be hearing much from Brennan in the near future. After all, finding just the right lawyer has got to be a very time consuming process. Poor Johnny.

Here are some of the responses to Gorka’s tweet:

He’s been on his alternate account, Juan Delicioso.

Check the airports!

He’s “remaining silent.” Probably on orders from his attorney.

He could be busy spilling the beans on all the rest.

It’s over Johnny!!!

He’s practicing trying to get his story straight…

He’s booking flights for Moscow…..

Nothing from either Brennen or BHO since 10/18.

The silence from Obama has been deafening as well.

My guess is he lawyered up.

I bet it was fun playing master of the universe for awhile, wasn’t it?

On Thursday evening, the New York Times reported that U.S. Attorney John Durham’s administrative review of the origins of the Trump/Russia investigation has shifted into a criminal inquiry. This major development grants Durham the power to subpoena witnesses and documents and to impanel a grand jury. Speculation has increased in the wake of reports that Attorney General William Barr and Durham had twice traveled to Rome and London to meet with intelligence officials recently and the news that Durham was interested in questioning both former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and former CIA Director John Brennan.

My colleague, Bonchie, posted on this story last night (here), writing that the mainstream media is portraying this as a political move. The following excerpt from the Times will give you an idea of how they plan to spin it. (Emphasis mine.)

The opening of a criminal investigation is likely to raise alarms that Mr. Trump is using the Justice Department to go after his perceived enemies.

…] The move also creates an unusual situation in which the Justice Department is conducting a criminal investigation into itself.

Mr. Barr’s reliance on Mr. Durham, a widely respected and veteran prosecutor who has investigated C.I.A. torture and broken up Mafia rings, could help insulate the attorney general from accusations that he is doing the president’s bidding and putting politics above justice.

[…] Federal investigators need only a “reasonable indication” that a crime has been committed to open an investigation, a much lower standard than the probable cause required to obtain search warrants. However, “there must be an objective, factual basis for initiating the investigation; a mere hunch is insufficient,” according to Justice Department guidelines.

Rather than acknowledging that Durham is zeroing in on the truth about the plot to destroy Donald Trump’s candidacy and following his unexpected victory, his presidency, they are characterizing it as Trump’s revenge. Still, there’s no doubt the major players involved in this travesty are starting to feel the squeeze.

MSNBC host Rachel Maddow, who has been peddling lies to her viewers for three years, characterized this latest move as a “frame job” and a “false flag operation” of the Trump campaign. She said, “This is the news that honestly, we’ve been sort of expecting for some time or thinking that if things got really bad, it might come to this…That is the conspiracy theory that the attorney general of the United States appears to have been going around the world trying to prove.”

It’s just crazy, isn’t it Rachel? Yes, now that Trump is on the verge of being impeached, his good buddy, Bill Barr, is going to bat for him. She will continue spewing this nonsense until Durham presents solid evidence of misconduct. At that point, her ratings, which fell by 25% following the release of the Mueller report, will crater.

Also last night, DOJ’s Inspector General Michael Horowitz announced that his long-anticipated report on alleged FISA abuse will be released in the next week to ten days with limited redactions. In a letter to lawmakers yesterday, which can be viewed here, he wrote that the classification process is “nearing an end” and explained that there will be one version of the final document. “Given the constructive progress that has been made during the classification review process, I do not anticipate a need to prepare and issue separate classified and public versions of the report.”

We know that Durham has questioned a number of CIA officials recently leading to speculation that the CIA outsourced some of their operations to their foreign counterparts to circumvent U.S. laws governing spying on U.S. citizens. Central to their investigation is the Maltese professor Joseph Mifsud. It was said that, on their most recent trip to Rome (at the end of September), Barr and Durham listened to a recording of a deposition provided by Mifsud in the summer of 2018 in which he explained his role in the saga. Additionally, Durham obtained two cell phones which Mifsud had used in 2016. Mifsud’s Swiss attorney, Stephan Roh, has been cooperating with Durham’s team for several months now.

In fact, the legal team of Trump’s former National Security Advisor, General Michael Flynn, believes there may be exculpatory evidence on those phones and they’re working to obtain them from Durham.

Former junior advisor for the Trump campaign George Papadopoulos, who was targeted by several “informants” in 2016, appeared on Fox News’ Martha MacCallum’s show recently and said:

Basically how I would summarize this, the grand statesman under Rome, Cicero, you know what he said?  What I think happened in 2016 and all of the events surrounding the 2016 campaign and the spying that took place on me and Michael Flynn and others was tantamount to treason. What happened was there was an intelligence agency with an ax to grind with candidate Trump and obviously President Trump, where we see the Russia hoax now evolving into Ukraine-gate. This is not going to stop. I predicted that Joseph Mifsud, that individual who now both of his Blackberries are now in the hands of the DOJ was a Western Intelligence agent. I wrote about it in my book exactly how I came in contact with this person who introduced me to him and what he wanted. Something I did not know and actually something that surprised me very much is that Joseph Mifsud was also spying on Michael Flynn just two months before he started his encounters with me… I joined the Donald Trump campaign in March of 2016. Before even the Washington Post or the American media knew that I was joining this campaign I had Joseph Mifsud and other intelligence agencies knowing all about me, what I was doing and what Donald Trump’s campaign was all about. So the notion that this investigation, Crossfire Hurricane, started spontaneously on July 31st 2016 is absurd. It’s completely absurd.

This is an extremely complex story which involves an enormous number of people. Durham’s team has been working on it formally since May. However, there were indications that he was actually on it several weeks or even months prior. If I recall correctly, Durham appeared at one or two Congressional hearings to listen to the testimony of former FBI officials.

In addition to the involvement of the British and Italian intelligence communities, there is reason to believe that Australian intelligence officials participated in the conspiracy. We need only look to Australian diplomat Alexander Downer’s May 2016 meeting with George Papadopoulos at a London bar where the Trump campaign’s newest advisor told him the Russians had dirt on Hillary Clinton. The FBI claims it was this event which triggered their counterintelligence investigation of Donald Trump.

Following Clapper’s lengthy trip to New Zealand and Australia in the late spring, Papadopoulos hinted he may have traveled there to cover his tracks. He posted the following tweet.

It looks like Trump is about to fight back. Fasten your seatbelts everybody!

Recently, one of my email pals sent me an incredible opinion piece from Howell Woltz at The International Centre for Justice, in Warsaw, Poland. He is the author of Justice Denied: The United States vs. the People,” a very interesting book about the US justice system and federal prisons and the need for some serious reform. Occasionally, an opinion piece is so profound that it simply MUST be disseminated to a much wider audience than a simple blog post. This is one of such article. In this commentary, he opines on the DoJ/FBI cabal’s ongoing coup against POTUS while explaining some key connections among John Brennan , Mitt Romney, Cofer Black, Burisma Holdings (Ukraine), Bararck Obama, Hillary Clinton, and all the rest. It fills in a lot of gaps and explains much about what is going on with respect to the Ukraine kerfuffle.

While I can’t vouch for the veracity of all the claims here, this just rings true to me and connects a lot of very interesting dots. As usual, I caution you to “trust but verify.” If nothing else, it serves as a departure point for your own dot-connecting activities. The more independent analysis is conducted by all, the clearer picture becomes over time. These are some extended excerpts from Woltz’s opinion piece. More than a few light bulbs may be turned on for you after reading this. Note: this article was published on 8 October, so keep this in mind as you read it.

Donald J. Trump is not a RINO or DC insider.  He’s a tough-guy billionaire from Queens, New York and a street-fighter. When the Democrats realised last week that Trump was actually heading up his own investigation rather than leaving it to their Deep State apparatchiks—and doing so directly with the leaders of Ukraine, Australia, and Italy (and perhaps the U.K.)—they did the political equivalent of starting a fire in a theatre. House of Representatives Speaker, Nancy Pelosi, announced impeachment proceedings against the president just three hours after stating in a speech that she would not. Speaker Pelosi had zero evidence, cause, stated reason and lacked the required vote of the House of Representatives to do so, but announced it anyway.

Strangely enough…and what caught my attention… Mitt Romney jumped on the “Impeach Trump” train that same day. How did Nancy go from “There will be no impeachment proceedings,” that morning in New York to announcing impeachment proceedings that afternoon when she got back to Washington, DC? Meet the Grand Master of the Deep State in America. Admitted Communist, John Brennan, who has some serious explaining to do now that his attempted coup of U.S. President Donald Trump has been exposed…and continues! So why did Romney want to shut down any investigation of Ukraine’s role as well? That’s the question that got this investigation started and it’s shocking.

Romney’s National Security Advisor, Joseph Cofer Black, sits on the Board of the same Burisma Holdings that was being investigated for corruption back in 2014, and the Vice President and Obama Administration demanded be shut down. Why? Because Burisma was/is their vehicle for corrupt practices in Eastern Europe. And CIA Director, John Brennan’s 9/11 Deep State partner, Cofer Black, is still the link to all that goes on there. In fact, I can state unequivocally that Burisma is the centre of Ukraine corruption and the Democrats’ shadow organisation for corrupt activities. I live in Eastern Europe (Poland) and my sources are first-hand. And I know this matters greatly to Mitt Romney as he is not yet done with politics. If Black is busted, it will reflect on Romney, and it only makes sense that Cofer Black is the Deep State ‘plant’ in case Romney ever rises above polishing knobs in the U.S. Senate. Romney wants to run for President again in 2024 and if he wins, Cofer Black will be back with his fingers on the strings either as DNI or CIA Chief of Corruption. Burisma Holdings is the hub of U.S. Democrat activities to corrupt both Ukraine and American politics and there is proof. Ukraine President Zelenskyy’s win surprised both Brennan and Black’s Deep State ops as much as Trump’s did in 2016 in America.

So who is this Cofer Black guy? Joseph Cofer Black, joined the CIA in 1974 and rose to be Director of The National Counterterrorism Center, before joining Mitt Romney. If it were not for researching this article, I admit, he was unknown to me as well. What a revelation. Black was also the Head of Counterintelligence who somehow missed the 9/11 attacks on New York and Washington, though according to The Economist, 16 foreign leaders and heads of intelligence agencies warned him it was not only going to happen but when. Oh well. And nothing was done about Cofer Black for this, indicating this is what the Deep State wanted. But it goes deeper. John Brennan and this guy, Cofer Black, are how 19 terrorists got into the U.S.A. to attack the U.S. on 9/11.

Editor Harry will jump on me or make Nurse Ratched give me a dose of Castor Oil if I say something I can’t prove, so I’m just going to quote the CIA whistleblower at the Jeddah, Saudi Arabia CIA staff hearing, who is the source: “According to Freedom Outpost, Brennan was the CIA station chief in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, when the 9/11 hijackers were given visas to travel to the United States. In September 2014, a whistleblower named Greg Ford, a former military intelligence officer, told Ground Zero Radio’s Clyde Lewis that the CIA had objections to the approval of those visas but Brennan actually overrode them.”

The second in command of the CIA station was directly quoted by the whistleblower as saying, ‘No way, absolutely we are not going to stamp those visas.’ But CIA Saudi station chief, John Brennan, overrode the officer in charge and ordered the visas to be stamped and issued. They came, they learned to ‘take off’ an airplane but said they were not interested in ‘how to land.’ Cofer Black ignored the reports about this strange behaviour, though it was made, I know as a fact, from the people who made it. I was also a Florida-based pilot in 2001.

You know the rest of the story. America lost over 3,000 citizens that day, and I sat for an hour trying to get past the terrorist pilots’ apartment in Coral Springs, Florida. Freedom Outpost concluded, “If it weren’t for John Brennan, 9/11 may never have happened.” I’d add to that, if Cofer Black weren’t the head of Counterterrorism, Brennan could not have gotten his men in to do the job. It took (these) two to tango. That’s an opinion, not news, but I’ll bet money I don’t have, that I’m right as it’s a no risk bet. These are partners in crime.

“Joseph Cofer Black – the former Director of the CIA’s Counterterrorist Center (1999-2002) and Ambassador at Large for counter-terrorism (2002-2004).”

“Mr. Black is an internationally recognized authority on counterterrorism, cyber security, national security, and foreign affairs.” (these are quotes from Burisma’s website)

Brennan definitely had help in this. These terrorists had to have someone at the highest level in U.S. Counterintelligence to let their mission come to pass and succeed by ignoring all the warnings. They even took their flight training near my home, and I remember being locked down in Coral Springs, FL after 9/11 where they lived for three days while the FBI went through their apartment just a few blocks away. And this is where Romney’s man, Joseph Cofer Black, comes in. He was the partner in crime of John Brennan, (the Deep State Master), as well as being Mitt Romney’s National Security Advisor. Bad news for Mittens. And Cofer Black is the reason Romney is desperate to have President Trump’s real investigation shut down. As Obama’s CIA Director, John Brennan was also in charge of the dirty tricks campaign against then-candidate, Donald Trump. All of that has now been uncovered by investigative reporters Gregg Jarrett (The Russia Hoax) and Peter Schweizer (Secret Empires) with enough references to satisfy Editor Harry and Nurse Ratched.

Amazingly, the plot was actually laid by the Deep State in 2014 before they even knew Trump would be Hillary’s foil in 2016. I found that part pretty amazing. The Ukraine/Russia story was created for whomever was the candidate to run against Hillary Clinton.

For John Brennan, it really didn’t matter to him who ran on the Republican side. He just cared that whomever it was, lost to the Deep State’s choice – Hillary Clinton. Brennan, Black, James Clapper, James Comey and a host of others were prepared to make sure of it. It was exposed just last week that Brennan flew under a fake passport to avoid detection on his trip to set this up in Eastern Europe as early as 2015. There is no explanation for a CIA Director to do this unless what he was doing was illegal.

Now let’s go back to Joseph Cofer Black. He is Romney’s Ukraine man, and Brennan’s long-time associate who is still covering here in Eastern Europe (from where I am reporting) for the Deep State in America. Brennan came back Stateside from the Saudi Arabian CIA office the year after arranging for the 9/11 attackers to get into America. So what did he do? He took over CIA Counterintelligence from his partner, Cofer Black.  Convenient, eh? The Counterintelligence guy who ‘missed’ the 16 warnings on 9/11, and the guy who granted the attackers visas to get into the U.S. to take pilot training and do it, swap jobs, perhaps to prevent detection? Well it worked…until now.

And history repeats. The tag team is back at it. Barack Obama chose (or was told) to make John Brennan his CIA Director. Brennan then sets up the Russian hoax through the Ukraine government and intel operatives covertly in 2015 to target any candidate who might face Hillary Clinton in 2016.

Once Trump became the Republican candidate, President Obama authorised illegal spying on Trump’s campaign, we now know, because it was labeled a ‘counterintelligence operation’ which can only be authorised by a President.

The script for the Ukraine/Russia hoax was actually written back in 2007 to use against Republican candidate, John McCain. It was temporarily deployed but then shut down and recycled when it was clear RINO McCain would get his ass handed to him by Obama in 2008 without CIA involvement.. So, Brennan decided to use the script in 2016. The Republican’s candidate would be targeted using the same plan, according to one of Obama’s own secret service agents, now author, Dan Bongino, in his new book, Exonerated (just out last week).

The original script was written by Fusion GPS owner, Glenn Simpson. That’s the same man and company who would be paid $12 million by the Clinton Campaign, The Democrat National Committee and the FBI in 2016 for “the Steele dossier” that caused the Russia Hoax against Trump—though actually written years earlier. Glenn Simpson simply changed the names.

Unfortunately, there was a problem. Socialist Bernie Sanders was leading the Democrats side over the Chosen, Hillary, and had to be eliminated. To achieve this, the Clintons literally did a forced takeover of The Democrat National Committee and its funds. They immediately cut off Hillary’s rival, Bernie Sander’s campaign (as admitted by former DNC Director, Donna Brazille, on television) eliminating Bernie from the race.

John Brennan then began leaking the ‘dossier’ to Congressional Democrats, including then-House Speaker, Harry Reid and their media co-conspirators to begin the take down of the Republican candidate, Donald J. Trump. Ironically, Brennan also leaked the fake dossier to Sen. John McCain, it’s original target, and McCain leaked it back to its original source—the FBI—to apply for warrants to spy on Trump using their own laundered information. The FBI literally paid for the fabricated information, leaked it to the media and politicians who hated Trump, then used their reports and that dossier when fed back to them, to get warrants to spy on Trump. But then the kimchee hits the fan for real. Trump gets elected! So, who jumps over to Ukraine to protect the conspiracy from being found out? Brennan’s 9/11 partner, Joseph Cofer Black…

Within days of Trump’s inauguration was immediately put in place in Ukraine to prevent anyone from talking. The Board of Burisma Holdings—the same centre of Ukraine corruption used by Joe Biden in 2014 to enrich his kid— was the base from which to shield the Democrat origins of the Russia Hoax and its intel roots from any real investigation.

By February of 2017, Cofer Black was a voting member of the Board of Burisma. You’ll hear the screams around the world this week as the democrats realise that Trump has taken this investigation on personally rather than leaving it to the deep state vermin. It’s all starting to fit together now, isn’t it? So, here’s what to expect.

Yes. There will be wailing a-plenty and gnashing of teeth over coming days, and this is the point where the president’s security needs to be at an all-time high, cause The Deep State is spinning out of control and desperate. If the new leaders of the nations that aided Brennan, Black and the Dems—all of whom are admirers of POTUS—have investigated the crimes of their predecessors as Trump asked, he likely has the evidence on his desk rather than having it hidden by the Deep State criminals.

This past Friday, it became known that President Trump had not only launched his own investigation with foreign leaders into the 2016 Election tampering, but that it was almost complete. As soon as that happened, the freak-out began. At 65 years of age, I’ve not seen one quite like it. The Deep State was and is in paroxysms of unmitigated fear and psychosis. They ramped up an immediate media assault using the usual outlets—CNN, MSNBC, The New York Times and Washington Post—and the same exact leak specialists who put America through The Russia Hoax.

The media spectacle on Friday past was immediately followed with a sua sponte announcement by Speaker Pelosi that she was impeaching the President—a power she does not possess no matter how many cocktails she’s had. A completely false narrative was spun of what was said in President Trump’s phone call with Ukrainian President Zelenskyy, knowing Trump would never allow them to have a copy of the classified transcript to disprove their lies. But guess what?  Within 24 hours, in another act of unprecedented transparency The Donald did just that. He released the full, unredacted transcript of the call, publicly proving them all to be Pinocchios. And I just watched his Attorney, Rudy Giuliani, announce that he is drafting a lawsuit to file against those who lied about his client, Donald Trump—another unprecedented event to my knowledge.

So the price of lying about the President is about to get expensive, and while Rudy’s suit will be in civil court, if proven that these public officials violated Trump’s civil rights ‘under colour of law’,  it might become a criminal referral under 18 USC §§ 241, 242 (Deprivation of rights under colour of law and a conspiracy to do so). I personally believe this is why the President and his lawyers are doing it. Through the civil suit, they’ll have the right of discovery to get records they could never access in any other way. By then, Trump’s team will have enough evidence in the civil suit to refer the defendants for criminal prosecution by the Dept. of Justice.

In the Deep State’s current state of mania, an assassination attempt is not only likely but perhaps inevitable. I predict they will have one of their insiders still in the White House do it, or a foreign team (CIA trained) do the hit on his helicopter. Not a single CIA, DOJ, NSA, DNI or Secret Service leftover from Barack Hussein Obama should be allowed near him and then all 17 illegal spy agencies that have so disgraced my nation should be shaken up or even better, shut down.

No other leader in my nation’s history would have the audacity to take on these evil forces—or have a chance of winning other than Donald Trump—and they will do everything possible to take him out before he gets them. In my opinion, we’ll either have a presidential funeral followed by a descent into the darkness of Socialism, or a brighter and better day with dozens of Deep Staters eating institutional food and wearing orange for life. I’m praying for Door #2.

Like I said, the preceding rings true to me, and it comports with my own thinking on the whole sordid subject based on what has been uncovered by many independent journalists over the past two years. There is absolutely no question that the Deep State has been trying to take out President Trump from even before his inauguration in January 2017. There is more to this article which can be read here. Think about the details of this article in the context of everything that has been going on regarding Ukraine since the “whistleblower” started to dominate the news. It’s obvious that the Deep State and their paid media allies are extremely agitated – and for good reason! And why else other than complicity in the corruption would Mitt Romney be out front in the “get Trump” brigade these days? To reiterate, as with all sources, I recommend that you trust but verify, but I’m praying for Door #2, too!

The end.

Fusion Natasha Gets Her Marching Orders On John Brennan, Ends Up Whiffing On Two Major Claims

Yesterday, we got a hilariously bad piece from Fusion GPS’ number one reporter. I say that with the admission that Ken Dilanian might still be fighting for the title but I think Bertrand has him beat lately. It’s like the Cuomo brothers. Andrew is bad, but come on, we all know Fredo is the dumber one.

This is the second clearly telegraphed Fusion GPS propaganda piece Bertrand has pushed out in as many weeks.

RedState’s Sarah Lee first covered it yesterday, focusing on the ridiculous notion that Brennan is just an innocent bystander, being targeted by an obsessed President. I mean, it’s not like Brennan was at the genesis of the Russia probe, lied about his knowledge on national TV, and spent the last three years ranting hysterically about Trump being a traitor. I can’t imagine why John Durham might be looking into this guy.

Politico even suggested that the focus on Brennan was somehow an offshoot of the Trump administration’s “blurring” of the lines between politics and law enforcement.

There’s so much projection in this article, i.e. accusing the DOJ and Trump of doing things the Democrats already did in the later stages of the Obama administration and throughout the Mueller probe. Bertrand either has no self-awareness or she just doesn’t care. Probably the latter.

But I want to focus on two key details she completely whiffed on because they kind of matter. At one point, Bertrand makes this claim.

Brennan allies and skeptics of the Durham investigation note that the CIA played no role in the probe involving Americans, and was narrowly focused on determining Russian President Vladimir Putin’s motivations and how the Kremlin was carrying out its election attack in 2016.

You know who that’s news to? John Brennan.

Brennan admitted in open testimony that he was looking into “US persons.” Further, we know Brennan was at the genesis of the entire Russia probe, including helping kickstart it within the Obama administration. He was doing all this while CIA Director, an agency that is expressly forbidden from targeting Americans. Further, there’s plenty of reason to suspect that the CIA had a hand in the now proven action of running assets against several Trump campaign associates.

You can read a deeper dive into Joseph Misfud’s probable CIA ties in this article. There’s a reason the media who’ve been towing the line for Brennan are now in panic mode.

Bertrand didn’t stop there though. She then made another unbelievably false claim in an attempt to try to paint Republicans as pushing conspiracy theories.

Asked for comment, White House deputy press Secretary Hogan Gidley said: “John Brennan lied before Congress when he got caught spying on American citizens and lied about having Russian collusion evidence that never existed. The only way I’ve ever heard anyone in the White House mention him is as a punchline.”

It’s not clear what Gidley was referring to—Brennan has not been accused of lying to Congress.

A quick google search would have shown Bertrand how laughable wrong that claim is, but apparently she doesn’t even bother to fact-check whatever Glenn Simpson is shoveling her on any given day. Brennan was not only accused of lying to Congress about spying on Senate members, he ended up admitting it.

This kind of nonsense is treated as “journalism” within the mainstream. At first I figured she just wanted “scoops” to elevate her career. Now, I wonder if Fusion GPS isn’t paying her directly. Anytime there’s any possible damaging information on the horizon for Brennan, the Russia Probe, etc. Bertrand is always there to spout the talking points of the other side. She does so uncritically, and as I’ve shown here, often falsely.

John Brennan is nervous. It’s obvious and no amount of Politico articles from friendly reporters is going to change the facts on the ground. We were told for years that if someone has nothing to hide, they should welcome an investigation. Well, here’s Brennan’s chance to be consistent.

NBC News reported that Attorney General William Barr and Prosecutor John Durham have expanded their examination of the origins of the Trump/Russia investigation. Durham has increased the size of his staff and has pushed out his timeframe.

Durham will be interviewing former CIA Director John Brennan and former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper along with other current and former intelligence community officials. According to NBC:

Durham has also requested to talk to CIA analysts involved in the intelligence assessment of Russia’s activities, prompting some of them to hire lawyers, according to three former CIA officials familiar with the matter. And there is tension between the CIA and the Justice Department over what classified documents Durham can examine, two people familiar with the matter said.

With Barr’s approval, Durham has expanded his staff and the timeframe under scrutiny, according to a law enforcement official directly familiar with the matter. And he is now looking into conduct past Donald Trump’s inauguration in January 2017, a Trump administration official said.

Although the probe did not begin as a criminal investigation, Justice Department officials won’t comment on whether it has morphed into one.

John Brennan told NBC that Durham’s investigation is “bizarre” and said, “I don’t know what the legal basis for this is.” He doesn’t? Let me refresh his memory.

Brennan’s obsessive fear that Donald Trump might win the presidency may have instigated the whole collusion narrative. He didn’t have to twist many arms to bring others on board, but his exhaustive search for “dirt” on Trump and his insistence that the FBI open a counterintelligence investigation was key.

I’ll never forget writer George Neumayr’s (The American Spectator) description of Brennan’s CIA. He wrote it April 2018, but it was so spot on, I remember it today. He wrote, “John Brennan’s CIA operated like a branch office of the Hillary campaign.” Neumayr called the Trump/Russia investigation “the probe from nowhere to nowhere, undertaken simply to satisfy the partisan hunches of John Brennan and other Trump haters in the Obama administration.”

Neumayr wrote that, based upon Brennan’s testimony and his leaks, he started pushing the FBI to open an investigation in the spring of 2016. He would present the FBI with what he called evidence and that Brennan would “shake down” foreign intelligence officials looking for anything to hang on Trump. He would then present the information to Peter Strzok and other government officials. Strzok, as much as he hated Trump, famously told his paramour, Lisa Page, that “there’s no there there.”

Brennan was receiving most of his “intelligence” from British spy Christopher Steele. Neumayr explains:

Brennan’s alleged intelligence from the British on Trump-Russia collusion was just laundered Steele opposition research for Hillary (Steele had been feeding his work to British spies, who contacted Brennan). At the center of almost all the streams of phony intelligence flowing into the FBI was Steele. Through his relationship with the FBI, he served as a direct stream of bad intelligence. Through foreign intelligence agencies, he became an indirect stream of bad intelligence (with anything he gave those agencies re-routed to the FBI through Brennan). He also served as a conduit for opposition research from Hillary partisans at or connected to the State Department (Cody Shearer, a Hillary hatchet man, passed his opposition research through John Kerry aide Jonathan Winer to Steele, who then fed it back to the FBI).

This is similar to the FBI’s use of reporter Michael Isikoff’s Yahoo News article to corroborate Christopher Steele’s dossier when, in fact, Steele was the source of Isikoff’s story.

Brennan leaked news of his “probe” to then-Senator Harry Reid, who told reporters Brennan had an “ulterior motive” for doing so. Reid said, “The very thought of Donald Trump as president made Brennan see red and caused him to lose all judgment.” But, regardless of what Reid believed, he wrote an open letter anyway to James Comey on August 27, 2016 about the Trump-Russian collusion he had just been made privy to and then the world knew about it.

The FBI knew they could not start an investigation based on the rubbish that Brennan was presenting to them. They needed to find a reason. When Australian diplomat, Alexander Downer, had drinks in a London bar with low level Trump advisor George Papadopoulos, who told Downer that he had been approached by a Russian who offered to provide “dirt” on Hillary Clinton, that became a talking point for the FBI. However, according to Devin Nunes, that incident was not mentioned in the Electronic Communication (EC) that originated the counter intelligence investigation.

Nunes and several other Congressmen were allowed to view the document after threatening contempt of Congress charges and possible impeachment votes. The DOJ and the FBI went to great lengths to keep the American people from learning that there was no original intelligence to support the case for collusion. None.

That should have ended the investigation, but of course it didn’t.

Now we have Obama’s DOJ, FBI and CIA, and it looks like they had a little help from the State Department, all colluding to influence the outcome of a presidential election. It’s hardly a stretch of the imagination to believe that Obama knew what was happening.

So, this whole narrative gained momentum as more and more Obama officials and Hillary supporters heard about it and hopped on the bandwagon. The lies were repeated so often, they took on a life of their own and anti-Trumpers began to believe them because they wanted them to be true.

It’s hard to deny that if Brennan hadn’t pressured the FBI, through Peter Strzok who served as the liaison between the CIA and the FBI, and through Harry Reid and others, there would likely be no Trump/Russia collusion investigation. But this was not his only egregious offense.

He was caught in numerous lies during his years in the Obama administration. In 2014, a Senate committee was investigating the CIA’s role in torturing detainees. Brennan lied repeatedly saying “that the CIA had not illegally accessed the computers of U.S. Senate staffers.” The CIA had done so indeed, and when the Inspector General’s report came out, he was forced to apologize.

In sworn testimony before Congress in 2011, he said that Obama’s drone policy had not killed a single civilian noncombatant when, in fact, many noncombatants had been killed.

He has abused his power on many occasions by “leaking” information about everything from the underwear bomber to Stuxnet. In 2012, an asset had to be extracted from Yemen because one of Brennan’s leaks had placed him in grave danger.

These are only a few of many examples that demonstrate Brennan’s long history of poor judgement. He has always played it fast and loose with the truth. Only when he is confronted with irrefutable evidence will he admit wrongdoing.

This is the hangover from the Obama era. It will one day become the legacy of the Obama era. America’s most highly respected and influential institutions were politicized and were used to do Obama’s – and Hillary Clinton’s – bidding. Officials at the highest levels of the DOJ, the FBI, the CIA and possibly the State Department, abused their powers to fabricate a case against Donald Trump because they wanted to marginalize him. Unfortunately for them, Hillary lost the race and America is slowly learning the truth.

Did that jog your memory at all, Mr. Brennan?

BIG: James Clapper Admits He Was Following Orders From His ‘Commander-In-Chief, President Obama’

In the transcript and the video below, Obama’s Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, speaks to CNN’s Jim Sciutto and makes the stunning admission that he’d been following Obama’s orders – and he says it twice.

This is very big news because it’s the first time a member of the deep state has admitted that President Obama was not only aware of the investigation, but was issuing orders to his team. “What were we supposed to have done…blown off what the then commander-in-chief, President Obama, told us to do?” And, as if we missed it the first time, he says it again. “It’s kind of disconcerting now to be investigated for, you know having done our duty and done what we were told to do by the president.”

Jim Sciutto: As you know, the President has members of this government, you have the Attorney General traveling the world now meeting with U.S. intelligence partners trying to find out, in his view, whether they participated in some sort of Obama administration led effort to undermine President Trump in the last election here. You also know that John Durham who is a prosecutor here, a senior justice department official, he’s pursuing his own investigations on the origins of that probe. Are you concerned that Barr’s or Durham’s investigation will find wrongdoing and seek to punish former intelligence officials?

James Clapper: Well, I uh, I don’t know. I, I, I don’t think there was any wrongdoing. I think at the time all of us were trying to navigate a very, very difficult, politically fraught, highly charged situation. I know, for my part, my main concern was the Russians, and the threat posed by the Russians to our very political fabric. The message I’m getting from all this is, apparently what we were supposed to have done was to ignore the Russian interference, ignore the Russian meddling and the threat that it poses to us, and oh, by the way, blown off what the then commander-in-chief, President Obama, told us to do, which was to assemble all the reporting that we could that we had available to us — and put it in one report that the president could pass on to the Congress and to the next administration. And while we’re at it, declassify as much as we possibly could to make it public, and that’s what we did.

Jim Sciutto: One issue I’m — (crosstalk)

James Clapper: It’s kind of disconcerting now to be investigated for, you know having done our duty and done what we were told to do by the president.

Clapper makes these statements in such a deadpan voice, we don’t realize at first the gravity of his words. But this is the first time a deep state insider has connected Obama to this travesty.

Rush Limbaugh was over the moon as he read this transcript to his listeners on Monday. He said:

I’ve been waiting for this. A lot of people have been waiting for this. Here’s Clapper saying, “I didn’t do anything wrong! We didn’t do anything wrong, ’cause we were doing what Obama told us to do.” The question he was asked is (summarized), “Are you worried about this investigation that Barr and he’s team’s running against you? Are you worried? You, Clapper and Brennan, are you guys worried?” (muttering) “Oh, no. Of course not. Why? (muttering) The president told us to do all that! (muttering) Obama was the president of the United States. Uhhh, the chief executive, uh, commander-in-chief told us to do all that.”

Really?

Folks, can you say in any other time and place “bombshell”?

In a text message dated September 2, 2016, from former FBI lawyer Lisa Page to fired FBI official Peter Strzok, she wrote: “potus wants to know everything we’re doing.” The two were putting together a list of talking points for then-FBI Director James Comey who was scheduled to meet with Obama.

I suppose we’ve just heard Clapper’s defense. I was just following orders.

I’ve heard that’s what the Nazi’s said at the Nuremberg trials.

I’m willing to bet that wherever Obama is right now, he’s not too happy!

Following Barr/Durham Trip to Italy, Angry Former Italian PM (and Obama Pal) Threatens to Sue George Papadopoulos

Former Trump campaign advisor George Papadopoulos appeared on Maria Bartiromo’s “Sunday Morning Futures” show this morning to discuss Attorney General William Barr’s and U.S. Attorney John Durham’s trip to Italy a couple of weeks ago. While in Rome, the two met with multiple Italian intelligence officials and while no one knows what took place in those meetings, reports say that their primary focus was the role of Maltese professor Joseph Mifsud.

Papadopoulos believes it might be something big. Shortly after the Barr/Durham trip, the former Italian Prime Minister, Matteo Renzi (who is said to be a friend of former President Obama), called Papadopoulos. Renzi, he said, went on a rant and threatened to sue him. He did not elaborate on what exactly Renzi said to him, but clearly Barr and Durham’s visit had him a little ruffled.

Several key events from the “Russian collusion” story took place in Rome. The Link University campus in the city provided the backdrop for many of those events. The faculty of Link University is closely connected to the British intelligence community. Moreover, the FBI held a training program at Link in the fall of 2016, an interesting fact which the Mueller report conveniently omitted.

Maria’s team put together a timeline of the campaign to entrap Papadopoulos:

February 2016: London Centre of International Law Practice contacts Papadopoulos on LinkedIn, starts working there.

March 2016: Invited by Arvinder Sambei to network in Rome, Introduced to Joseph Mifsud by former Italian Foreign Minister Vincenzo Scotti.

April 20, 2016: Israeli official makes introduction to Australian Intelligence official, Erika Thompson.

April 26, 2016: Mifsud claims Russia has Hillary Clinton emails.

May 2, 2016: Contacted by former UK Foreign Minister, Tobias Elwood, to learn about Trump.

May 5, 2016: Two U.S. Intel personnel, Terrence Dudley and Greg Baker, reach out about Trump.

Papadopoulos tells Bartiromo that “within 48 hours of joining the Trump campaign, I’m being invited to go to Rome at the behest of a woman named Arvinder Sambei who I used to work for in London, who I later found out had a working relationship with Bob Mueller after 9/11. So, that’s very suspicious and I’m invited to go to Rome to this University where I’m introduced to Joseph Mifsud by none other than the former Italian Foreign Minister.”

He also said that subsequent reports say that Sambei is also a close associate of DOJ official Bruce Ohr. We know that Ohr acted as a backchannel between dossier author Christopher Steele and top FBI officials. So, it appears that, within the top ranks of the international intelligence community, there are many interconnections. They all seem to know each other.

Bartiromo tells him, “I find it really interesting that just this week we learned new information that the former Prime Minister of Italy is threatening to sue you. This is ex-Italian Prime Minister Renzi threatening to sue you George Papadopoulos. What do you think this is all about George?”

Papadopoulos replies:

Well I think obviously that somebody’s connecting dots and those dots lead directly to Rome. Rome might actually be the epicenter of this entire conspiracy, even more so than London which I initially thought. Look, Attorney General Barr was recently in Italy along with John Durham. They were obviously looking into Joseph Mifsud’s extensive connections to both the Italian government (documented) and Italian Intelligence services. They’re probably looking into this University Link Campus and Vincenzo Scotti and who was the Prime Minister when all of this was going on. Matteo Renzi…and now, all of the sudden, he had some sort of meltdown a couple of days ago, he’s threatening to sue me and he went on a rant about the President, so clearly he’s feeling the heat.

Bartiromo adds, “And it feels like the CIA is also among the agencies that will be questioned as a result of gathering all of these people together which really makes it look like this incredible network of diplomats across the world working with the CIA or the FBI. We’ll see. We’re getting the IG report in the next two weeks.

Is it possible that we now have Italian collusion?

(The first part of Bartiromo’s interview with Papadopoulos begins at 40:50 in the first video and continues on the second one.)
