What did Obama know ... and when did he know it ?

An Email was sent just after 
the Trump inauguration 
by former National Security 
Advisor Susan Rice, 
to only herself ?

She describes a January 5, 2017 
meeting of Deputy Attorney General 
Sally Yates, FBI  Director 
James Comey, VP Joe Biden, 
Susan Rice and President Obama.

We now know Lisa Page 
wrote to Peter Strzok 
on September 2, 2016, 
about prepping James Comey 
because “potus wants to know 
everything we’re doing.”  
("potus" is president of the United States)

Rice notes that President Obama:
"stressed his continued commitment 
to ensuring that every aspect 
of this issue is handled by 
the Intelligence and law enforcement 
communities by the book", and
Obama "stressed that he is not 
asking about, initiating or instructing 
anything from a law enforcement perspective."

The Trump-Russia investigation 
was not "by the book".

We now know James Comey 
mislead Congress about his contact 
with President Obama. 

Comey said he met with the Obama twice, 
once in 2015 and another 
“to say goodbye in late 2016,” 
according to his June 8, 2017 testimony 
before the Senate Select Committee 
on Intelligence.

“I spoke alone with President Obama 
twice in person (and never on the phone)
 – once in 2015 to discuss 
law enforcement policy issues 
and a second time, briefly, 
for him to say goodbye in late 2016,” 
Comey’s opening statement read. 

Comey's prepared statement 
to congress deliberately omits 
the January 5, 2017 meeting,  
and qualifies his meetings with Obama 
as "alone." 

Since the January 5, 2017 meeting 
wasn't "alone", Comey didn't include it 
-- deliberately misleading Congress 
about his communications with President Obama.

The former FBI Director also claimed 
minimal communication 
between the FBI, DOJ, 
and the Obama Administration, 
in his briefing to Congress.

That was a lie.

We now know 
government efforts 
to surveil Donald Trump 
as a candidate, 
an incoming President, 
and a sitting President, 
were a group effort, 
at the least followed 
by President Obama, 
and possibly led by President Obama ...
who was not likely to "follow" something 
without giving at least some directions 
-- after all, the man always thought that 
he was the smartest man in any room !

"Those who enter the country illegally and those who employ them disrespect the rule of law, and they are showing disregard for those who are following the law.

Golden Oldie Chart from 1916 Election

The Loyal Opposition

THE MEMO is disappointing -- more narrow subject matter than expected

I started this blog 
in Spring 2016, 
and expected it to end 
after the 2016 election
 ... but the 
"election circus" 
has not yet stopped.

It may be getting worse
with THE MEMO, and
the crazy Democrats
claiming our nation
would be ruined if
the information in 
ever exposed to
the public. 

Democrats have been
losing power since
their peak in 
January 2009, 
like no other party
in the history
of our nation,
and listening to
their hysterical
comments about
strong evidence
they are still
in a downhill slide.

As a libertarian,
( and we did well
in the 2016 election,
in spite of a candidate
who was either 
smoking pot, 
before interviews, or
was not very bright! )
I don't want Republicans 
controlling the government
any more than I wanted
Democrats in complete
control -- meaning 60 votes
in the Senate -- as the 
Democrats had 
from January 2009
to January 2011).

Bad things happen 
when one party 
controls the government,
such as ObamaCare,
of which I have been
a victim since 
January 2014. 

The purpose of this blog 
was to expose lawbreaking 
by politicians, and lies 
to cover up that lawbreaking.

The lawbreaking 
was done 
by Hillary Clinton 
all her eMail 
electronic files, 
after a subpoena 
from Congress 
to preserve them.

I mentioned here before
that Hillary Clinton
had obviously violated 
the Records Act 
and Freedom of
Information Act, 
but our Congress, 
in its usual stupidity, 
wrote those laws 
so a government employee 
could avoid punishment 
for breaking the laws 
by merely quitting their 
government job,
and never working
for the government again !

But Hillary did 
commit espionage, 
by taking all her
classified documents 
off government computer 
systems, and I have 
little doubt they were
hacked by someone.

The problem with 
prosecuting Hillary 
was that she 
sent / received 
eMails to / from 
her non 
eMail address, 
using her own name, 
to / from 
president Obama, 
also using 
a non 
eMail address, 
and an easy 
to figure out 

Seems like 
a lot of people in the
Obama administration 
contacted each other, 
when they wanted to, 
without using 
government computers 
or government phones, 
making a laughingstock 
of Freedom of Information 
Act requests !

So here's what I learned 
from reading THE MEMO:

Around noon Friday 2/2/18
THE MEMO was released:
 (the "FISA" memo 
compiled by House 
Intelligence Committee staff 
and chairman Devin Nunes 
was declassified by 
Trump's lawyer 
Donald Gahn,
over the objection of the
 DOJ (Department of Justice) 
and the FBI.)

A key point that is the 
"salacious and unverified" 
(according to James Comey,
 stated under oath) 
Christopher Steele 
"Trump Dossier",
for which he was 
paid $160,000 
from Hillary / the DNC, 
was the main evidence 
of the unjustified 
wire tapping application, 
and three 90-day renewals, 
against Carter Page,
who broke no laws,
as far as I can tell, 
nor has he ever been
charged with breaking
any laws.

Who is Carter Page?

He seems to be a 
Trump volunteer
advisor who attended
either one meeting,
or none!

 "The FBI's Andrew McCabe 
confirmed to the committee 
that no FISA warrant 
would have been sought 
from the FISA Court 
without the Steele dossier 

The Hillary Clinton / DNC 
political origins 
of the Steele dossier 
were known to senior DOJ 
and FBI officials, 
but deliberately excluded 
from the FISA applications.

DOJ officials knew Steele 
was being paid by Democrats, 
yet signed one warrant, 
and three warrant renewals 
against Carter Page
without mentioning that
very important fact.

DOJ official Bruce Ohr 
was relayed information 
about Christopher Steele's 
very strong anti-Trump bias
also never mentioned
to the FISA judge. 

Steele told Bruce Ohr (FBI)
that he was desperate 
that Donald Trump 
not get elected president, 
and was passionate 
about him not 
becoming president.

The FBI and Justice Department 
mounted a months-long effort 
to keep the information 
outlined in THE MEMO
out of the House Intelligence 
Committee's hands,
which has oversight
responsibility, to control
the power of the 
Executive branch 
of our government. 

Only the threat 
of contempt charges, 
and other forms of pressure,
forced the FBI and DOJ
to give up the material,
and who knows how much
they are still hiding?

The Intelligence Committee
leaders and staff compiled 
some of that information 
into THE MEMO.

The FBI and Justice Department, 
supported by Capitol Hill Democrats, 
mounted a ferocious campaign, 
claiming release of THE MEMO
would endanger national security, 
which is complete nonsense!

THE MEMO does not represent 
everything House investigators 
have learned in their review 
of the FBI and DOJ's
Trump-Russia investigation,
and that is the problem. 

The "Russia investigation" 
has always been
a fishing expedition 
(aka witch hunt), 
because Trump 
committed no crime, 
nor has a specific crime 
been named as the subject
of the "investigation", 
by Robert Mueller, 
even though 
a specific crime 
is supposed to be 
the ONLY job 
of a Special Counsel !

It is clear that 
members of the
Obama Administration,
perhaps up to
one dozen people,
broke various laws
in a failed effort
to get Hillary Clinton
elected President,
like we were a 
bamana republic,
and some of those
people should serve
time in prison for
breaking laws.

I believe there is far 
more than just one
FISA warrant on
Carter Page who 
in 2012 or 2013
did some 
consulting work
for the Russian 
government, and 
was questioned
by the FBI 
at the time,
for doing 
nothing illegal.
