Nunes pointed out that "numerous" current government officials and former officials -- including anti-Trumper Gen. Hayden -- have appeared many times on RT and some have even taken RT money, and yet they were not put under counterintelligence investigation like Lt. Gen. Flynn.

All Schiff & Dems & their witnesses have in terms of any "collusion" is Manafort sharing polling data to Kilimnik even tho Kilimnik was US asset (not Russian agent) & he was Manafort's partner in political consultancy & the polling data came from firm contracted by consultancy!

BREAKING: Schiff's FBI witnesses -- both of whom worked for Mueller when he was FBI director -- claimed under oath they have never read the Steele dossier
No, I don't believe that last bit either.
I wonder if there's some deception going on regarding people denying having read the Steele dossier--as was noted in an earlier post with Brennan's denial (not until December 2016). The "dossier" is, I believe, media invented shorthand to refer to the collection of a series of memos Steele work for FusionGPS over June(?) to December(?) 2016. Presumably, many of these people saw (some of) the memos as they were produced/circulated, or summaries--their plausible deniability is in not reading/seeing the complete "dossier."ReplyDelete
This entire episode has involved a tremendous amount of shading of answers, hedging with qualifiers, and an absence of forthcoming responses. A lot of guilty minds about.
I'm quite sure of it. It's like Trisha Anderson saying she never read the Carter Page FISA application, although she had to sign it. As if FISAs on a presidential campaign were of no interest to her.Delete
As if not reading a document you're responsible for authorizing as a signatory is exculpatory. Denial of having read the document is an admission of malfeasance and should be criminally punishable, given it is not only a 4th amendment search, it is a secret/classified search.Delete

If this stands, justice is not only blind but deaf and dumb, too.
Mueller witnesses tell me they've rec'd new doc production + testimony demands from Schiff who's relaunched collusion probe,making his prior irresponsible behavior reading dossier into record & publicly slandering innocent citizens relevant.He lacks credibility as an investigator
They're planning on a complete redo of "collusion." This is why Barr should get some indictments done. And explore other avenues to prevent this sort of abuse.
Something tells me that we don't have to worry about Barr. I think that he is way on top of this.ReplyDelete
Let me ask a rhetorical question. Who seems the most worried among Trump, Barr, Schiff, Nadler, CNN, Comey, Brennan, etc.?
Answer that question and I think that you'll have an idea of who has the ace in the hole.
I think Barr is like Honey Badger--he don't care and will continue on his chosen path. Still, for my peace of mind ...ReplyDelete
Hey, I totally get you. Sometimes I'm encouraging you and sometimes I'm encouraging myself. This is for all the marbles.ReplyDelete
