Trump: I'm Ordering the DOJ to Investigate Whether Obama Ordered Spying for Political Purposes






Greenwald notes, as many others have, that the DOJ is simultaneously leaking all the biographical details needed to identify Stefan Halper, while claiming that it would endanger his life to identify him:

Last night, both the Washington Post and New York Times -- whose reporters, like pretty much everyone in Washington, knew exactly who the FBI informant is -- published articles that, while deferring to the FBI's demands by not naming him, provided so many details about him that it made it extremely easy to know exactly who it is. The NYT described the FBI informant as "an American academic who teaches in Britain" and who "made contact late that summer with” George Papadopoulos and "also met repeatedly in the ensuing months with the other aide, Carter Page." The Post similarly called him "a retired American professor" who met with Page "at a symposium about the White House race held at a British university."

In contrast to the picture purposely painted by the DOJ and its allies that this informant was some of sort super-secret, high-level, covert intelligence asset, the NYT described him as what he actually is: "the informant is well known in Washington circles, having served in previous Republican administrations and as a source of information for the C.I.A. in past years."

Despite how "well known" he is in Washington, and despite publishing so many details about him that anyone with Google would be able to instantly know his name, the Post and the NYT nonetheless bizarrely refused to identity him, with the Post justifying its decision that it "is not reporting his name following warnings from U.S. intelligence officials that exposing him could endanger him or his contacts." The NYT was less melodramatic about it, citing a general policy: the NYT "has learned the source"s identity but typically does not name informants to preserve their safety," it said.

In other words, both the NYT and the Post chose to provide so many details about the FBI informant that everyone would know exactly who it was, while coyly pretending that they were obeying FBI demands not to name him. How does that make sense? Either these newspapers believe the FBI's grave warnings that national security and lives would be endangered if it were known who they used as their informant (in which case those papers should not publish any details that would make his exposure likely), or they believe that the FBI (as usual) was just invoking false national security justifications to hide information it unjustly wants to keep from the public (in which case the newspapers should name him).



Update: The left's new rules, as summarized by Adirondack Patriot:

It's all academic because this is how the left thinks:

1. It is illegal to defeat a Democrat.

2. Anything we do to stop an illegal act is legal and a morally necessary.

3. The only way a Democrat can lose is if someone (in this case, Donald Trump) did something illegal, such as collude with Russians, because no Republican is qualified to legally defeat a Democrat.

4. Everything we do to stop Trump is legal, regardless of the law.

Ben Shapiro, Deep State Defender.



Correction: Red-faced embarrassment -- I got the timeline screwed up here myself. I conflated Misfud's mention of the emails with Halper's (Halper's mention was several months later).

The timeline goes something like this:

April 2016: MISFUD, not Halper, mentions the Russians hacking the emails to Papadoplous

May 2016: Papadoplous mentions this to Downer (the Australian diplomat)

September 2016: Halper asks Papadopolous about the emails (Papadopolous says he doesn't know anything)

I confused the dates and who it was (Misfud, Halper) doing the talking.

I still don't see how mentioning the emails to anyone could be grounds to begin an investigation -- everyone was speculating about the idea that Russians had the emails for months; it was one of the reasons people said Clinton should be indicted -- and I'd like Ben Shapiro to explain that to me.

If talking about the Russians having Hillary's emails is grounds for an official counterintelligence investigation, then the NSA should have been monitoring me and this blog as well. And pretty much everyone I knew.

Who knows, maybe they were/are.

But my jibe about the timeline was all wrong. I'm the one who had to do more research into the specific timeline here.

I also suspect that when all is done we'll find out that Misfud was actually involved in this "investigation," but that's not in evidence yet. It's just my private supposition.

Oh: The FBI has repeatedly lied about the origins of this "investigation." First it was sparked by the Steele Dossier. When the highly dubious and partisan nature of the document was revealed, they edited their story to claim it all originated with this Papadopolous mention of the emails to Downer.

With the FBI and DOJ crabwalking and changing their stories, why should anyone have any faith in their current claims?

Who can say what the FBI's current claim actually is? Have they made an official statement, or does it continue to be put out via not-under-oath leaks to the media?

54 Trump wouldn't have kept Sessions around if he was useless.

Maybe you could make the argument that it would look bad for Trump if he dropped the hammer on Sessions especially because of the recusal, but he fired Comey and that caused a shitstorm that he weathered easily.

No, I think Sessions has been busy behind the scenes lining up the ducks for Trump to knock down. It's Good cop/Bad cop on steroids. Or maybe it's Bad Cop/Bad Cop. Whatever the case, Trump has to date given me no reason to doubt his abilities.

1. It is illegal to defeat a Democrat.
2. Anything we do to stop an illegal act is legal and a morally necessary.
3. The only way a Democrat can lose is if someone (in this case, Donald Trump) did something illegal, such as collude with Russians, because no Republican is qualified to legally defeat a Democrat.
4. Everything we do to stop Trump is legal, regardless of the law.

123 I'd add Jackson to that list - easy to forget how disruptive he was because it's been so long - and I'd actually take Washington off it, since as far as America was concerned, he was a huge stabilizing force with widespread support.

I like to cite Washington because he created the position into something that Congress never intended, ie. something with power. He didn't take any crap from Congress either, so he basically set the stage for every future Exec. That's pretty disruptive to what his "deep state" of the times intended him to be.

Read the book "Mr. President" to see how he did it that lives on to this day.

125 I recall how when the 9/11 trutherism started the easiest way to reject it was saying "there's no way W could have pulled this off and kept it secret!".

However, looking at the growing list of people/federal agencies and outside organizations (Fusion GPS, numerous reporters) involved in this Trump coup, I'm starting to wonder if this was a DC swamp open secret on par with Harvey Weinstein - where almost everyone in that town at least knew some part of it, if not helped facilitate it in some small or not so small way.

Getting back to Sharyl Attkisson, she may be onto something with this tweet:

I think there's a major fallacy in focusing on the 2016 election without understanding the bigger part of the picture: *why* bad actors in intel community were so desperate to not have Trump elected. It's about what could be discovered about the past 10-20 years. Not just 2016.

The former secretary of education under President Obama, Arne Duncan, is proposing that parents keep their kids home from school until gun laws are changed.

Duncan tweeted this shockingly stupid proposal on Friday in response to a tweet from one of his former employees:

Washington Post:

Duncan said in an interview Saturday that the idea was intended to be provocative but that an aggressive approach like a school boycott is needed if gun laws are ever going to change. He has school-age children and said if this idea were to gain traction, his family would participate.

Lead the way! I'll be right behind you! I promise.

"It's wildly impractical and difficult," Duncan said. "But I think it's wildly impractical and difficult that kids are shot when they are sent to school."

139 Strzok, the guy who needed an insurance policy in case Trump got elected, was involved in

1) the Hillary investigation. He was the FBI guy who interviewed her. After Paramour Page texted him that Lynch "knows no charges will be brought."

2) the Flynn Frame. He was the FBI guy Sally Yates sent to interview Flynn. Where Strzok changed his 302 report at McCabe's behest to claim that Flynn had lied.

3) the Russian collusion investigation. Strzok opened the counterintelligence investigation of Russian collusion based on Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos, and oversaw the investigation.

4) the Weiner laptop cover-up. Comey sent Strzok to look at the laptop so they could say "nothing to see here, move along."

5) the Mueller investigation. Strzok joined the team, presumably to co-ordinate and carry messages to the rest of the cabal.

Also, Page and Strzok texted that "[President Obama] wants to know everything we're doing."

Strzok can roll up the whole thing. With Page and Priestap and lots of documents corroborating.

One feckin guy sings, and it all comes out.

Is there a single virtue now remaining amongst you? Is there one vice you do not possess? Ye have no more religion than my horse; gold is your God; which of you have not barter'd your conscience for bribes? Is there a man amongst you that has the least care for the good of the Commonwealth?

181 One thing I read today that was an OH SHIT moment for me was when I read at Townhall:

**How the FBI and CIA Restarted the Cold War to Protect Themselves**

I had forgotten that the famous 30 Russians deported from the US occurred only 3 weeks before Trumps inauguration! Jesus, they were poisoning the well in order to promote the idea that the Russians were meddling, as a segue to claiming it was in favor of Trump!

I have no doubt the Russians do all sorts of nasty things all the time, but this is Obama deliberately poking the bear just before he hands off, for supposedly diddling the election via FaceBook! And at the same time he has FBI agent provocateurs in his successors operation, spying on Trumps people as they tried to convince the Russians not to take the bait!

Up until now I have regarded talk of treason and potential capital punishment as over-the-top. I am reconsidering, as I see an outgoing president creating international tensions between nuclear powers, in order to hide his own malfeasance!

Obama is a criminal, period!

186 >>It's funny, but you really would think that the Deep State would turn on her by now for being such an incredible f*ck up for failing to win an election that was handed to her on a silver platter.


They can't turn on her now since they've been partnering with the Clintons for years. I imagine if there's one thing the Clintons understand, it's getting leverage over your partners in crime to keep them on their side. For example, Obama had to scuttle the email investigation, since he was emailing her private email account, including classified docs (part of the language in Comey's statement that was softened up by Strzok in his "no intent here!" statement referenced this). Another example is Mueller - he's in the middle of the Uranium One deal. And others in the IC were working for here, as she was in possession of classified docs that she was not read in on; Sid was emailing some that had been presented less than 24 hours earlier. That indicates people high up were essentially committing espionage to keep Hillary in the intel loop.

We may never know how ugly this mess was, but all indications are that the FBI, CIA and DoJ need to be dismantled and rebuilt to get rid of all the rot.

Posted by: The MSM at May 20, 2018 03:30 PM (JGBbg)

218 There's a common conflation of (A) Hillary's 33,000 deleted e-mails and (B) the DNC/Podesta hacked e-mails.

Trump and his people were half-jokingly asking the Russians (or anybody else who had them) to turn over A. "A" likely would prove Clinton Pay for Play and more. No matter their provenance, "A" was fair game as they were illegally deleted in the first place -- with the active involvement of Comey's FBI.

"B" wasn't as big a deal as the revelations were ignored by MSM, who used the hacking to build a brief against the Russians and by extension the Trump campaign. There's no evidence that the Trumpsters sought to get "B," but it's conflated with "A"

Trump and sessions had to let this play out or risk stepping on the toes of the IG and Prosecutor that sessions appointed and screwing that criminal investigation up.

I have no doubt that they found out what was going on during the campaign in the last few weeks and months as the IG kept digging and reporting back to DOJ. But Trump has kept his mouth shut until something pops up in the NYT or some other place, then he blasts them.

This is all an attempt to get ahead of what is coming out in the IG report. And if the media is reporting that spying was actually taking place in Trump's campaign we are going to see even worse stuff revealed when the IG report goes public.

Here's my optimistic take on Sessions: He and Trump intentionally had him sit back so that when he does strike, there can be no legitimate accusations of him impeding the Mueller investigation on Trump's behalf. Having Rosenstein do it means it was guided by a non-Trump appointee, which defuses any appearance of partisanship.

Also, having him stand down has been a big ol' rope-a-dope, as it has allowed all the players - Mueller, Rosenstein and the rest to actively attempt their coup while the Horowitz investigation was actively watching them, tracking and documenting their every move.

I'd like that to be true, anyway...

As a test facility, it was established in 1945 and predates Cape Canaveral. In the late 40s and early 50s, instrumented models of the new supersonic airplanes were attached to small solid-fuel rockets and launched. This was because wind tunnels at the time could not model conditions in the transonic region very well. After that period, lots of scientific sounding rockets were launched to study the upper atmosphere, a practice which continues to this day.

I imagine so, but I'm pretty sure this type of thing is SOP for the Democrats/DS.

We only found about it because Trump won, and fights.
Why did John Roberts write the majority opinion on ObamaCare which then mysteriously became the dissent? This isn't a conspiracy theory, mind you. It was reported in Salon of all places. I would guess whatever the reason is is also a pretty fucking big scandal.

Asking Comey to go easy on Flynn, when Trump knew Flynn was getting framed, is an example.

I am expecting the STHTF well in time for the midterms (the good shit, our shit), and am waiting patiently for Trump to start ripping apart/demoralizing the various identity group factions of the Democrat Party. Reminding or informing each of them that the Democrats only want their vote and never deliver.

Everyone presumed the Russians had the deleted emails (even Strozk, IIRC, makes mention of possible state actors having gotten access). Everything that they have run with says they believe Russia had the emails.

That still does not explain why, little Ben, Misfud - conveniently disappeared - telling a Trump campaign guy the Russian's had them, would cause the early 2016 FBI/CIA descending on the Trump campaign with human intelligence operations, when they didn't even bother to seize and investigate hillary's or the DNC's fucking servers, if they were so g-damned concerned about national security!

I'd like to know what other leads and operations they had going on to pursue Russian meddling/hacking/email propagating, at the time. I expect we will see a distinct lack of interest in anyone other than someone with a connection to Trump.

356 What the Reagan Campaign did was try to get the inside scoop on Carter policy. Every campaign does that--and every reporter, too, Reagan was just trying to win an election, not rig one. So don't let them tell you 'Everyone does it.' Bullshit.

Reagan wasn't trying to wiretap and frame Jimmy Carter and Carter wasn't trying to wiretap and frame Reagan. There is a connection, though; Hillary got the "RUSSIA!"-hoax model from the Iranian October Surprise-hoax.

President Trump was wrong about one thing, though. He recently said the Mueller probe was one year old. The Mueller Hoax is merely a continuation of Brennan/Comey Coup cooked up in the Oval Office over two years ago.

Watergate was a footnote compared to this seditious conspiracy. And unlike Watergate, the #FakeNews today are helping the perps tape the door locks, erase the audio tapes and craft the Inoperative Statements.

Nunes rightly has come to the conclusion that the meeting was merely cover for the NYT & WaPo cover stories....that the FBI/DOJ were spying on the Trump campaign in order to save us from ourselves, or whatever this idiocy is that the MsM is trying to push.

406 If they were really worried about who ended up with Hillary's e-mails they would have arrested Hillary for letting so many people, down to the lowliest pervert in NYC, have access to them.

The only interest I think they really have in the e-mails is that there will likely be a lot of stuff that they allowed Hillary to scrub which would come to light if someone else had them. The Russians knowing all of that and using it against us is one thing. But Trump having it and exposing them is another. They would do anything to stop that from happening (especially during a campaign) since it would threaten their cozy, incestuous clique, and nothing is more important to them than their own comfort and power. It had to really shake them to have thousands of people chanting, "lock her up!" Everyone involved in the wrongdoing had a stake in those e-mails staying hidden, or getting out in front of the news if they were found and that can lead to desperate actions.

Once they started investigating a presidential campaign there was no going back and it snowballed after that point. So I guess maybe that is an additional theory of how this all happened to go with the idea that it was all just a pretext and set-up from the start. I am not sure which I believe. Maybe some of both depending on who the player is in the farce. But it seems like there could certainly be more than one motivation at work here. At the very least it helps explain why they chose such a flimsy and ridiculous pretext to justify spying.

They are telling us what they were afraid of, just lying about why. They feared Trump having that information more than they did Putin having it because if Trump had it we would have it, and that just wouldn't do at all.

Have to assume this is exactly what Trump wants - he's been playing them via twitter for over a year now. LOL!

Recall how he first tweeted about the wiretapping a little before 4:00am on a Saturday morning. He's just now messed up the Sunday of the MSM who are no doubt scrambling to counter him.

410 As expected, MSM spin is that Trump is improperly asking the DOJ to attack his political enemies.

The old 'I Know You Are, But What Am I' gambit: 'Trump was spied on. Wanting to know why is partisan and dishonest.'

411 "They feared Trump having that information more than they did Putin having it"

A lot of foreign money got laundered through the Chelsea Legacy Foundation. I haven't found a serious analysis of where that money went. There's evidence that it was used to pre-game Hillary's campaign (e.g. Sid Vicious was on payroll). I suspect bribes were made to D super-delegates who went for Hillary before the campaign started (this made it impossible for a regular candidate to get funding.) And the kids of MSM got cushy jobs.

There's a lot of exposure

No the Vacancies Act would permit PDT to place Scott Pruitt in that position (bc he has been Senate confirmed.) And, that's one of the reasons the left has accused Pruitt of malfeasance, his ability to take over the AG position.

430 I wonder how close Hillary is to a full on psychotic break. She's not stopped campaigning in years. She's physically coming undone before our eyes. Whatever ailment she suffers from cannot continue to be concealed from the public. Her alcoholism. Her meds. It's all building to a soft sigh, a bottle of pills clattering on a tiled floor and a cold, limp hand dangling from a bed mattress.

And when she does finally faulter and fail? Her lackeys will slip away as the press devour her like a pack of wilding hyena.

And she knows it. All in stark relief.

Posted by: gNewt at May 20, 2018 07:44 PM (8u+2n)

442 While Mifsud's efforts to introduce Papadopoulos to various Russia connections do not necessarily raise any red flag, the same cannot be said of Mifsud's statement that on a trip to Russia they told him they had dirt on Clinton and thousands of her emails.

Posted by: gNewt at May 20, 2018 07:59 PM (8u+2n)

443 Why the urgency on behalf of the IC and their enablers at NYT and WAPO to identify Halper as the spy? Because what Halper did, and who he is, is much easier to defend that what Mifsud did. Mifsud was the set-up man. Halper's role was to be that of the reliable old-hand who discovers that Papadop knew long ago that the Russkies had the harridan's emails (and probably entire copies of her rogue server's hard drives. As did everyone else, by the, including the FBI.) It's a modified limited hangout in which Halper is THE one and only spy, doing God's work.

It is only political if you don't treat the perp as any other nameless faceless who having done the same thing (i.e.: the crime, not the person) would be doing hard time. It is political if you investigate the person without a crime, or not investigate the crime because of the person.

No one of any importance will be arrested or even held accountable.
There will be plenty of sturm und drang, furious tweeting, fulmination by Ingraham and Hannity, slam-dunk reporting by Sara, etc etc. But no one of any consequence will pay any price.
A thought experiment: Try to imagine going online and learning that Hilary Clinton has been indicted for destroying 30000 emails that were under subpoena. Can you? No, you love to entertain the idea in the abstract, but you know, sadly, that cannot and will not ever happen.
Don't fool yourself. Some people are above the law. You aren't, but some are. And they know it.

In the world of US politics out of the White House, the way Donald Trump rolls, what the fuck does "wartime consigliere" mean? Or is it just a bunch of internet guys trying to sound tough, yet wise?
