John Solomon: House Republicans Demand Email Chain Between Comey and Senior DOJ Officials, Which They Say Provide "Damning" Evidence that the FBI and DOJ Knew Their "Collusion" Case, and Their FISA Warrant, Were False From the Start

This whole article should be read. I've excerpted the newest bits from it, but it's all pretty good, and best read as a complete piece.


Just before Thanksgiving, House Republicans amended the list of documents they'd like President Trump to declassify in the Russia investigation. With little fanfare or explanation, the lawmakers, led by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), added a string of emails between the FBI and the Department of Justice (DOJ) to their wish list.

Sources tell me the targeted documents may provide the most damning evidence to date of potential abuses of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), evidence that has been kept from the majority of members of Congress for more than two years.

The email exchanges included then-FBI Director James Comey, key FBI investigators in the Russia probe and lawyers in the DOJ’s national security division, and they occurred in early to mid-October, before the FBI successfully secured a FISA warrant to spy on Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.

The email exchanges show the FBI was aware -- before it secured the now-infamous warrant -- that there were intelligence community concerns about the reliability of the main evidence used to support it: the Christopher Steele dossier.

The exchanges also indicate FBI officials were aware that Steele, the former MI6 British intelligence operative then working as a confidential human source for the bureau, had contacts with news media reporters before the FISA warrant was secured.

...

Lawmakers now want to question Comey about whether the information in the October email string contributed to the former FBI director's assessment.

...

Congressional investigators also have growing evidence that some evidence inserted into the fourth and final application for the FISA -- a document signed by current Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein --was suspect.

...

And the entire warrant, the FBI's own document shows, was being rushed to approval by two agents who hated Trump and stated in their own texts that they wanted to "stop" the Republican from becoming president.

Meanwhile, former prosecutor Margaret Cleveland suggests questions that must be asked of James Comey in his deposition to Congress.


Specifically, the committee should inquire about the involvement of the DOJ (Loretta Lynch, Sally Yates, Bruce Ohr, Rod Rosenstein, and Andrew Weissmann), the State Department (John Kerry, Victoria Nuland, Jonathan Winer, and Elizabeth Dibble), the CIA (John Brennan), the National Intelligence Services (James Clapper), the congressional offices (Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein, former Democratic Sen. Harry Reid, the late Republican Sen. John McCain, and Democratic Reps. Adam Schiff and Mark Warner). Comey should also be asked about any involvement of, or knowledge by, Obama administration officials (Susan Rice, Samantha Power, Ben Rhodes, Denis McDonough, and Shailagh Murray), and former President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden.

After having Comey identify all the U.S. government actors, the committees should move on to foreign governments’ involvement, following the same format: Comey should be asked whether he knows of, or heard of, the involvement of any foreign governments, including foreign assets, informants, or confidential sources. Here the United Kingdom, Australia, and the Italian governments, the British and Italian intelligence agencies, and Sir Andrew Wood, Sir Richard Dearlove, and Alexander Downer, are of special interest.

Finally, Comey should be questioned on the involvement of private organizations or individuals with the government’s investigation into Trump and the Trump campaign, by, for instance serving as government contractors, sharing information with investigators, or receiving and publishing leaks from the government.

The former FBI director should be asked to identify all outside organizations and individuals connected to Spygate, starting with the Democratic National Committee, the Hillary Clinton campaign, Hillary Clinton, PerkinsCoie, Fusion GPS (Glenn Simpson, Nellie Ohr), Orbis, David Kramer, then moving on to the other names raised in connection with the Russia probe, and ending with an open-ended narrative to discover whether there are other unknowns in the shadows.

Good list. I expect a lot of lapses in memory, peppered in between refusals to answer based on "National Security Concerns," which are of course really Job Security Concerns and Prosecutorial Concerns.

He's remarkably patient and never lets a slight go unavenged. He moves at his own speed and on his own timetable. He clearly plans on serving a second term and I wonder if he let the House go to hell because they were useless anyway. Pelosi's new crop of crash dummies will make him look like the only sane man in Washington.

Diagnosis for Lyme's USED TO BE - I don't know if it still is - based on the number of antibodies or virii or something in your bloodstream, compared with a map of the US.

My mother had a bullseye tick bite and symptoms of Lyme's, her doctor sent her blood off to get tested, and if she lived in Maryland, she would Lyme's, but she lived in SC, so she didn't.

He went ahead and treated her for Lyme and she got better.

I've had Lyme twice, so I'm kinda sensitive to how easily it's contracted. My Dad got it, tested negative, got Bell's Palsy. Another woman my wife knows got Lyme, tested negative, got Bell's Palsy, and it took years before she was properly diagnosed. The palsy became permanent.

In exchange for #NeverTrump, the Bush clan has been offered to have W. memorialized in pop-culture as merely a retarded, dumb-f*ck manipulated by evil NeoCons, while actually being a pretty good Simple-Jack-type fellow rather than being portrayed as an evil war-monger.

I'm sure in the meeting it was explained that they can't go as far as making him noble or respectable, that it would be a bridge too far. But they can make him into a fucktard-gone-tragic character that people can sympathize with.

Of course he is. They all are. They have been since the very beginning because this IS politics.

There has always been an enormous element of politics about this because there had to be. Trump is trying to defang a completely political investigation into his administration and he has been up against an imbedded bureaucracy and a media that is 90% against him.

Did you really expect him to play things out in public where the media would work to coverup and destroy every new detail? He's smarter than that.

Congress is not a prosecutorial branch. They do oversight. The Executive branch does prosecutions and if anything has been happening that is where it has been going on.

We'll soon find out.

I have resigned myself to the fact that the magnitude and scope of the lawless criminality we know was perpetrated can never ever be met with justice.

We're talking about criminality and malfeasance that encompasses the FBI, DOJ, CIA, NSA, Five Eyes, State, Clinton world, the Deep State, members of the Senate, the House, the DNC up to and probably including Obama himself.

We're talking the arrests and convictions at MINIMUM, of 25 of the most elite people, IN THE WORLD!

Never was going to happen.

I at least thought SOMEBODY at least one patsy/sacrificial lamb would be held accountable but no...

No one is going to face true justice.

I've replaced water heaters by myself and it is possible to do. BUT, the last time one failed, I got a professional plumber from a reputable company to do the work. It might have been a bit more expensive, but he did a beautiful job and I'm done for at least another ten years. Unions and shutoff valves on the inlet and outlet lines. I do think he missed code by not adding a leak pan and I would warn you this should be a must have!

As Bill Munny said, "deserve's got nothin' to do with it."

I don't know what the divorce laws are like in CA - they're probably atrocious - but they probably took a snapshot of his peak earnings on paper and based the payments on that. That's how Brendan Fraser and David Foley got hosed.

Apparently the lesson from this is convince an egomaniac lawyer to marry you, let him slap you around a bit, and then divorce him right around the time he gets a little media notoriety. Easy 160K gig.

Or, you know, not. Because you could take one look at CPL and realize he was a total sleazeball, and the time spent in his presence is pure misery. Gross. Rather be poor if that is the terms.

News like this would be ordinarily very important in a normal world. It would either change the attitude of the electorate or result in judges, officials and politicians being fired or imprisoned.

But as I think about it, I honestly believe you could produce a video of HRC, BHO, and head of DOJ in a room handing a FISA judge a bag with $20 million in it and a recording stating that the plan is to illegally frame Trump and neither a) would a Trump hater stop hating or b) an official go to jail.

219 Back in the 70's, I had a job at a plumbing supply house, attempting to decipher just what architects wanted on blueprints. They would specify, say, an A. O. Smith water heater, and we could sell them one of the house brands for thirty bucks less, made by A. O. Smith. There were only three or four water heater companies at the time. Now, when buying one you may be supporting an Chinese province or ciudad in Mexico.

Living on borrowed time here....20 years as of June. I replaced it back in 1998. Electric with hard (well) water. A Sears model. Never had them leak....bottom element usually becomes encased in calcium and burns out. Removing it is impossible, hence making replacement of the entire unit necessary....usually on a Sunday. Grrrrr. At least when I replaced the last time, I sweated copper unions to the inlet and outlet pipes with a valve on each. Makes Plug and Play easier. Heh.
