    • Undercover FBI informant William Campbell has given written testimony to Congressional investigators after an "iron clad" gag order was lifted in October
    • Campbell was a highly valued CIA and FBI asset deeply embedded in the Russian nuclear industry while Robert Mueller was the Director of the FBI
    • Campbell was required by the Russians, under threat, to launder large sums of money - which allowed the FBI to uncover a massive Russian "nuclear money laundering apparatus"
    • He collected over 5,000 documents and briefs over a six year period, some of which detail efforts by Moscow to route money to the Clinton Foundation
    • Campbell claims to have video evidence of bribe money related to the Uranium One deal being stuffed into suitcases.
    • The Obama FBI knew about the bribery scheme, yet the administration still approved the Uranium One deal.
    • To thank him for his service, Campbell was paid $51,000 by FBI officials at a 2016 celebration dinner in Chrystal City
    • When it emerged that Campbell had evidence against the Clinton Foundation, a Yahoo News article by Michael Isikoff (of FISA warrant application fame) slammed Campbell as a "disaster" potential witness

    Right, back on topic... I’m not sure I’m with Chuck in the Senate on this. Dems are giving up their best leverage for the Dreamers.

    I *do* know that Nancy was AWESOME yesterday. Clearly not low energy and obviously unhindered by bone spurs... That woman is a fighter and I think she won over plenty fans yesterday.
    Obviously not the kinda fans that roll over and submit to 45... Rather the fans those folk least understand... Women who vote.

    Exactly what are they supposed to use this leverage for?

    Logic? The US government is a terrorist organisation itself

    Doesn't that suggest to you that there's more to the story than meets the eye?

    Lol.

    How? Are they to blame for the guy's misbehaviour? If it was a PR issue, why not just cut him loose?

    Feds Scrambled to Redact Information Showing Top Secret Spy Abuse
    Newly unearthed info confirms Nunes memo on FBI spying


    Federal authorities scrambled to redact and keep classified key information revealing major abuses of the U.S. surveillance apparatus that targeted President Donald Trump's associates in the lead up to the 2016 election, according to multiple sources familiar with the situation who said the latest information corroborates findings recently made public by House Intelligence Committee officials.

    On the heels of the release of a classified memo by Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee disclosing that the FBI relied heavily on a widely discredited anti-Trump dossier to carry out unwarranted surveillance on Trump allies, Senate investigators this week made public their own findings that appear to corroborate the events.

    The new criminal referral issued by Sens. Chuck Grassley and Lindsay Graham, both Senate Judiciary Committee members, calls for a formal investigation into Christopher Steele, the onetime British spy who compiled the dossier on behalf of the Democratic National Committee and Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

    The latest details, which detail alleged spy abuses, are likely to complicate efforts by Democratic leaders to rebut the allegations and keep the public focused on the continuing investigation into claims the Trump campaign colluded with Russia.

    Itís Ďcos they didnít cut him loose Ďtill it blew up in the press and they were left twisting in the wind. Kinda like what happened with Flynn...

    Along with Kelly, no one really has more access to 45 than Porter. The folk doing the background checks knew about the accusations and they resulted in the feds holding back his security clearance for more than a year. Iíll say that again... More than a year.
    Impossible Kelly didnít know and he backed Porter Ďtill he ran out of road when the photos dropped yesterday. Hope Hicks helped write the WH response defending Porter yesterday... Sheís dating the dude.
    All of this to cover for one of 45ís closest aids who has access to all the documents 45 gets, who canít get proper security clearance, and likes smacking his wives and girlfriends up.

    Its the WH... This shyte should not be happening.

    So you mean, someone is setting him up and using deception in order to do it?

    ROGER STONE: Gen. Michael Flynn to File Motion for Dismissal of ALL CHARGES Against Him (VIDEO)
    by Joshua Caplan 625 Comments

    19.9KShare 821Tweet Email

    According to legendary political operative and InfoWars correspondent, Roger Stone, lawyers for Gen. Michael Flynn are preparing legal action to have all charges against him dropped.

    STONE: “Lawyers for General Mike Flynn will shortly file a motion to dismiss all the charges filed against him, based on reports now confirmed by The Hill, Circa News and Infowars, that Assistant FBI Director Andrew McCabe told a teleconference of law enforcement officials, “first we ***** Flynn, then we ***** Trump.”
    Fox News host Sean Hannity and reporter Sara Carter have suggested Flynn may have been tricked into having the interview with disgraced FBI agent Peter Strzok without a lawyer.
    The facts are out. There would be no need to call off the sentencing of Flynn to something he pleaded guilty to if there wasn't clear evidence of bad faith behaviour on the part of the FBI.

    The same FBI which has conspired with Obama to undermine the Trump administration at any cost.

    So waiting a year before giving a guy the all clear sounds like more of the same. You know what they say, fool me once...

    I'm sure you can explain, then, why the wheels fell off the Flynn case, right?

    C'mon Mr incredulous, spin us a plausible yarn.

    What fantasy world are you living in? You wanting the case against Flynn to go away and wingnuts on Fox pushing for it doesn't mean it's happening.
    In the real world, Flynn has plead guilty and is cooperating with Muller... Show me the video of a judge throwing out the case and you'll get your yarn... 'Till then, the OT thread is that way ----->
