House Committee Document Could Mean
Trouble for Anti-Trump "Deep-Statists"

Power Line, by Paul Mirengoff

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 1/19/2018 4:37:31 AM

Sara Carter reports on a classified document that was released to all members of the House today. The document seems to be a compilation of information, prepared by House intelligence committee staff, relating to the anti-Trump dossier, the FBI, the warrant to conduct surveillance on members of the Trump campaign, and the use of that warrant. Carter calls the document a bombshell. Her sources say its revelations might lead to the removal of senior officials in the FBI and Department of Justice, and perhaps even the criminal prosecution of some. They also say, less plausibly, that the revelations could lead to

If this, indeed, is the big ugly, I hope it opens the eyes of the political class in this country so that they will know that eventually their evil deeds will be exposed. For so long they have done who knows what to do whatever benefits their agenda. It’s time for them to be held accountable to we the people. We pay their salaries, provide excellent health care and golden pensions for them and they repay us by undermining the Republic. If what we are hearing is true, justice should be swift, blind, and without mercy. These arrogant bureaucrats have tainted their agencies with their actions and deserve everything that is coming their way regardless of their status. The Swamp must be drained and this may be the perfect opportunity. MAGA

Criminal abuse of State power demands more than a wrist slap or a "you´re fired!". We can be sure President Trump understands this, and that he knows his Deplorable base will be expecting actual go-to-jail justice, preferably of the cruel and unusual sort, for these enemies of the Republic.

Paul says that Mueller might make a case for an obstruction of justice investigation. Obstruction of WHAT justice?

If Comey and others in the FBI and DOJ were corrupt then the president has every right to question their actions, make his opinions clear, make suggestions, and fire them all. In fact, as chief executive, he has that right. Beyond that, Comey was fired for botching the Clintoon email investigation, something that has become clear he did, probably criminally. There may have been other unspoken reasons but that one is MORE than sufficient.

With Trump Russian collusion having become a made-up issue, WHAT justice is there to seek? The crime was a deeply corrupt bureaucracy.

Paul mentions the guilty pleas of a couple of players. Those were process crimes unrelated to the point of the investigation. If there were no fraudulent investigation, there would have been no process to violate. In essence, in any FBI investigation SOMEONE will eventually tell a lie and get caught out.

As to the media´s reaction, who cares? Trump has made it a hallmark of his presidency to spit in the face of the media and PC. The media will act insanely as it has since Trump was elected. Look at Trump´s health examination. His doctor gave him a great review. The media spins it as if Trump is hiding something and the doctor is colluding with him.

The only thing that needs to happen is that clear evidence of government corruption needs to come forward. There is a lot of speculation and logical connecting of dots. I believe much of it is true. But the EVIDENCE must be clear enough to put before the American people and have a reasonable citizen shake his head in agreement and be convinced.

Then this insanity can end.

I just can´t get excited over the possible release of this document in it´s original form with all the info and names. If it IS released, it´ll have so much black Magic Marker ink on it you couldn´t make a paper airplane out of it and make it fly because of the weight.

Am I a cynic of the political class? You betcha, I´ve watched the scummy Rats and their lapdog media sycophants lie and twist everything damaging to themselves into another a ´Republican witch hunt´ and, as usual, the Republicans crawl under their beds and wet themselves.

I hope I´m 100% wrong, but history says otherwise.

First: If the document(s) are such a freaking bombshell, why release them to the full body? What will that accomplish? Shock? Outrage? Foot stamping? If the Committee has something juicy, send it to the Attorney General for proper prosecution, grand jury, what ever. No one is going to be fired or go to jail for "Shocking" someone´s sensibilities.

Releasing the document(s) is a political move, not a judicial or "Justice" move. It´s what high school girls would do.

This nonsensical story focuses on whether or not Mueller should be disbanded.

But Mueller is utterly irrelevant at this stage. No one who knows what went down - - especially the Stable Genius - - gives a fig about Mueller any more.

Mueller is the Milli Vanilli in this story - - trying to lip-synch his way to fame and fortune.

I think a major component of the Big Ugly is educating the public, a public that has been held in ignorance by the enemedia. The rigging of the 2016 Presidential election is the greatest crime of sedition and treason ever committed against the American people. Prompt prosecution and severe punishment for such serious crimes would be warranted from a functioning government and society, however at this moment we do not have either.

President Trump has been working hard to re-establish integrity within our governing body, as well as communicating directly with the American people. It is critical that the demand for prosecutions come overwhelmingly from citizens, for without it the effort would have no credibility. We who populate these threads know so much more than our neighbors, having lost our innocence regarding government integrity a long time ago. Remember our Tea Party education, and how painful it was to finally recognize and accept the reality of the Uniparty. Also remember how long that journey took. Our fellow “average” Americans will take that same journey strapped to the side of a Saturn rocket.

I believe President Trump is managing the rollout of information in a manner that will carefully lead the people through the evidence. He must shepherd the country through its greatest crisis since the Civil War and try to accomplish it without widespread street violence. He must oversee the controlled demolition of The Swamp while ensuring the rebuilding is in accordance to our Constitutional blueprint. Pray for our President.

MAGA – Trust President Trump.

Please indulge a second post. I’m off to watch the March for Life, starting noon eastern time. Live coverage on EWTN.

President Trump will address the March for Life today on livestreaming video from the Rose Garden. He is the first President to do so. President’s Reagan and Bush did phone calls, one each. Trump is our first Pro-Life President. I’m sure that is noted by The Big Guy.

I am really amazed at the checkers players here who cannot see that Sessions, as a Trump appointee, has had to keep his fingerprints off of this investigation to prevent the Enemedia from getting any traction in the inevitable claim of "a political hit job on the DoJ and FBI" which the Enemedia WILL be using. I am convinced that this was why he readily agreed to recuse himself. I was very angry at this "stupid move" at the time, but now can see that it was politically necessary.

This has to be done via Congress, with multiple committees taking pieces to defuse the "one rogue Congressman" potential Dem/Enemedia pushback, and via mostly Obama appointees, such as Rosenstein, Adm. Rogers and IG Horowitz to eliminate the "political hit" claims. This has to be seen as a purely legal move, not political.

This is 3D political chess, and the Enemedia must be checkmated in advance, before this can succeed. Sessions has to come in after the facts are presented to his ´recused and amazed´ official self, for him the then do his official duty to indict, convict and imprison the traitors.

Mueller is still dangerous, but has no target, and is running on fumes at this point.

I agree with #27.

The bias of the left population (and this still IS a Republic) is so strong that the evidence, pathways, timelines, communications must be irrefutable. And the discovery process multifactorial and bipartisan, so that those who are sane on the left (I know, an oxymoron) will see clearly and be moved to act, or at least stand aside while justice is meted out.

What Trump and Sessions is accomplishing is nothing short of a miracle, and answer to prayers of patriots who are defending the God given rights of all humanity in this country.

Until 1968, Walter Cronkite believed what his government told him about the Vietnam War. He was an old-school journalist, a patriot, a man who came of age covering World War II as a wire-service reporter and then taking over as the anchor of “The CBS Evening News” at the height of the Cold War. Like most journalists of his generation, he embraced the fight against communism and understood why the United States had intervened in the war raging in Vietnam. When he’d visited Vietnam on a reporting trip early in the war, he’d been annoyed by the attitude of the young

The idea that the NFL is only implementing its new national anthem policy because of falling ratings and public pressure is exactly how businesses work. No business exists to employ people; they exist to make as much money as possible. Hemorrhaging fans, or customers, is the quickest path to failure, so it’s smart for the NFL to do all it can to stop the swirling public relations disaster its players created. Fining teams whose players kneel during the anthem isn’t “punishing dissent,” it’s the people who sign the front of the players’ sizable checks exerting the authority inherent in any

Two major exit polls project that Irish voters have voted to repeal the country´s Eighth Amendment, passed by voters in 1983, which effectively bans abortions in the island nation. One poll, by The Irish Times, projected 68 percent in favor of repealing. Another, by RTE, showed a similar projection of 69.4 percent in favor. The results followed a contentious and emotional campaign in a deeply Catholic nation, home to one of the world´s strictest abortion bans. Seeking or providing an abortion in Ireland was a criminal offense that carries up to 14 years behind bars. As a result, thousands of Irish women

Looks like President Trump just called Kim Jong-un’s bluff. Trump on Thursday abruptly called off next month’s scheduled historic summit in Singapore, calling it “inappropriate” in the face of the North Korean leader’s “tremendous anger and open hostility.” Earlier in the week, North Korea, apparently convinced that Trump is preoccupied with winning a Nobel Peace Prize, goaded him by suggesting he would “be recorded as a more tragic and unsuccessful president than his predecessors, far from his initial ambition to make unprecedented success.” But Trump’s cancellation letter turned the tables by thanking Kim

Abortion, long a taboo subject here, now dominates the public airwaves and conversations on the street as Ireland prepares to vote on whether to scrap a constitutional amendment that bans the procedure. Women are sharing their stories about traveling for "job interviews" to England, where the procedure is legal, or being forced to carry a child to term when it has no chance of survival. Posters for or against the proposed repeal compete for space on lampposts across the country. "I am 9 weeks old," says a "No" campaign advertisement featuring an ultrasound of a fetus.

The swiftness with which the media have brushed aside Stefan Halper’s role in the Russia investigation should be a sign that he’s certainly more important than they’re admitting. Halper was identified by the Daily Caller´s Chuck Ross last weekend as the professor who worked in some still-unknown capacity to inform the FBI on the Trump campaign in 2016 as part of the agency’s probe of Russia’s election meddling. Halper met with at least three of then-candidate Donald Trump’s campaign advisers, and records show he was paid nearly $300,000 by the Defense Department in September 2016.

To paraphrase Humphrey Bogart in Casablanca, of all the gin joints, in all the towns, in all the world, George Papadopoulos, an adviser to the Trump presidential campaign, had to walk into London’s Kensington Wine Rooms in May 2016 where he got drunk and told Alexander Downer, Australia’s High Commissioner to the UK, that Russia had “dirt” on Hillary Clinton and many of her emails. Downer reported this conversation to U.S. authorities in late July 2016. According to former FBI Director James Comey, this report — and not the dossier paid for by the DNC and the Clinton campaign — was the seminal event that raised concerns

Some NFL players are reportedly considering new ways to protest after NFL owners voted on a new national anthem policy Wednesday, reports Sports Illustrated´s Robert Klemko. According to Klemko, some are discussing ways to skirt new rules "just to spite the NFL." The policy removes a requirement for players to be on the field for the anthem, and gives players the option to stay in the locker room. Teams will be fined for any personnel that "do not show proper respect for the flag and Anthem” on the sidelines. Other journalists were hearing similar things from players they talked to.

Florida-based supermarket chain Publix announced Friday that corporate-backed political contributions will be suspended “as we reevaluate our giving processes” – an announcement that came shortly before Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg’s “die-in” protest. In response to the revelation earlier this month that Publix donated $670,000 to Florida GOP gubernatorial candidate Adam Putnam, Hogg organized the “die-in” protest to occur at a Publix in Coral Springs on Friday where participants were instructed to lie down in the store for 12 minutes. Shortly before the protest was set to begin at 4 p.m., Publix issued a statement regarding the suspension of corporate-funded

On Monday, Netflix announced that it had signed a multimillion deal with former president Barack Obama and former first lady Michelle Obama, and on Wednesday, Obama spoke publicly about the deal for the first time. (Snip) He recounted his first job out of college as a community organizer, helping bring various factions together to solve local problems from crime to underfunded schools. An older, experienced community organizer told the young Obama at the time that before he started to suggest solutions to problems, he should spend a month talking to people and hearing their stories. "Everyone has a story that is

Thursday at the New York State Democratic Party’s convention on Long Island, former Vice President Joe Biden said the Republican Party in the era of President Donald Trump had abandoned American values in favor of “phony populism” and “fake nationalism.” Biden said,”This is not your father’s Republican Party. This is a different deal. They are not, they are not who we are. They are not who America is. But what they are doing is they sending a vision of America around the world that is distorted. That is damaging. That is hurting us with this phony populism and this fake

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., argued Thursday that North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un is the "big winner" after President Trump canceled the planned summit between the two next month in Singapore.

He got global recognition and regard. He´s the big winner." "When he got this letter from the president saying ´OK, never mind´ — he must be having a giggle fit right there in

While speaking to a tech conference this week in Las Vegas President Obamarepeated a claim he and many members of the media have made since his presidency came to an end. “I didn’t have scandals, which seems like it shouldn’t be something you brag about,” Obama said. “But actually,” he said, “if you look at the history of the modern presidency, coming out of the modern presidency without anybody going to jail is really good. It’s a big deal.” The notion is obviously absurd on the face of it, for anyone who paid unbiased attention over the eight years of

Failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said she would like to be CEO of Facebook. Speaking to an audience at Harvard University, alongside Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey, Clinton was asked what company, if any, she would like to be CEO of. Clinton said she made Facebook her choice because the social media giant is the “biggest news platform in the world.” “We can listen to really brilliant, experienced writers like David Ignatius and try to keep up with the news,” continued Clinton “But most people in our country get their news, true or not, from Facebook.” Clinton went on to talk

Democrats and their media allies are again shouting “constitutional crisis,” this time claiming President Trump has waded too far into the Russia investigation. The howls are a diversion from the actual crisis: the Justice Department’s unprecedented contempt for duly elected representatives, and the lasting harm it is doing to law enforcement and to the department’s relationship with Congress. The conceit of those claiming Mr. Trump has crossed some line in ordering the Justice Department to comply with oversight is that “investigators” are beyond question. We are meant to take them at their word that they did everything
