John Solomon, speaking to Sean Hannity, is saying that the first set of declass documents will be out in 7-8 days. According to Solomon, the first set will include exculpatory information that the FBI was aware of before the initial FISA application--information that discredited Chris Steele and his "dossier". As an example, Solomon relates that he personally was told by the FBI before the FISA application that the Steele's Alfa Bank story--according to which there was a secret comm setup between Putin and Trump at Trump Tower via Alfa Bank--had been debunked. And yet the FBI told the FISA court that Steele was completely reliable. For more details, see Solomon's latest article: Christopher Steele's nugget of fool's gold was easily disproven — but FBI didn't blink an eye.
Solomon also points out that for the first time ever a poll is showing a majority of Americans support investigating FBI spying on Trump--evidence that Americans are wising up to the Russia Hoax: Most Americans support inquiry into FBI decisions to monitor former Trump campaign officials: poll. In fact, support for AG Barr's investigation is strong and broad based:
In a new Hill-HarrisX survey, a majority of registered voters said they support a new Department of Justice inquiry into whether official procedures were followed when the FBI began examining allegations of connections between Donald Trump's 2016 presidential campaign and Russia.
Sixty-two percent of respondents to the May 17-18 survey said they support Attorney General William Barr's decision to name a U.S. attorney to determine whether law enforcement officers had obeyed regulations governing surveillance of U.S. citizens while 38 percent said they opposed the new inquiry.
The poll found broad agreement across age groups in favor of the probe led by Connecticut-based U.S. attorney John H. Durham with more than 58 percent of voters under 35, between 35 and 49, between 50 and 64, and older than 64 saying that they supported it.
Bad news--but only to be expected--for the Impeachment Madness zealots in the House.
A few days ago, the Moon of Alabama published an article titled Trump Administration Withholds Information That Could Debunk Russian Interference Claims. The article publishes excerpts from a press conference that US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Foreign Minister Sergej Lavrov conducted jointly on May 14.ReplyDelete
During the press conference, Lavrov remarked:
[quote, emphasis added]
Speaking about the most recent US presidential campaign in particular, we have had in place an information exchange channel about potential unintended risks arising in cyberspace since 2013.
From October 2016 (when the US Democratic Administration first raised this issue) until January 2017 (before Donald Trump's inauguration), this channel was used to handle requests and responses.
Not so long ago, when the attacks on Russia in connection with the alleged interference in the elections reached their high point, we proposed publishing this exchange of messages between these two entities, which engage in staving off cyberspace incidents. .... The administration, now led by President Trump, refused to do so. ....
However, we believe that publishing it would remove many currently circulating fabrications. Of course, we will not unilaterally make these exchanges public, but I would still like to make this fact known.
I hope that Trump's Administration will reverse its decision prohibiting this exchange of USA-Russia correspondence about the allegations that Russia meddled in our 2016 election. That correspondence should be released for public discussion.
I saw that, too, Mike. I didn't mention it because I wasn't entirely sure what to make of it. There are a number of "troubling" possibilities here--all leading back to efforts by the Obama administration to possibly sabotage the incoming Trump administration. I just published a new blog which, when taken in conjunction with this, may suggest some of that. It seems almost miraculous that Trump was ultimately able to navigate the mine field that was set for him, and that seems to have been enabled by key members of his own administration.Delete
Like you, I'd like to see this made public.
If you're accused of collaborating with Russia, it's not a great idea to coordinate a denial, WITH RUSSIA.Delete
A better idea is to focus on the AMERICANS who used the FBI & CIA as their own private Stasi service (while simultaneously screaming Russia! Russia!).
I'm not sure what you're saying in the first paragraph. Lavrov specifically states that this coordination was conducted WITH OBAMA BEFORE TRUMP.Delete
Trump is thinking - "So you want me to use Lavrov & Putin as character references now? I have a saying. It goes like this. You're fired."Delete
But I would very much like to see what Obama was saying to the Russkis, when they objected to the Russia Hoax.Delete
Absolutely agree. If Lavrov/Putin disclose what they know about Obama, then would be nice. But Trump can't have anything to do with any such disclosure.Delete
