The DOJ Inspector General Found 19,000 'Lost' Strzok and Page Texts

“Lost”, Yeah that’s it

The Department of Justice Inspector a General released a report Thursday showing thousands of text messages sent by fired FBI agent Peter Strzok and former FBI attorney Lisa Page were not properly preserved and presented a “gap” in investigating their misconduct at the Bureau

"The Department of Justice Office of the Inspector General initiated this investigation upon being notified of a gap in text message data collection during the period December 15, 2016 through May 17, 2017, from Federal Bureau of Investigation mobile devices assigned to FBI employees Peter Strzok and Lisa Page relevant to a matter being investigated by the OIG's Oversight and Review Division. Specifically, the OIG's Cyber Investigations Office was asked to attempt recovery of these missing text message for the referenced period from FBI issued mobile devices issued to Strzok and Page," the report states. "In view of the content of many of the text messages between Strzok and Page, the OIG also asked the Special Counsel's Office to provide the OIG the DOJ issues iPhones that had been assigned to Strzok and Page during their respective assignments to the SCO."

After a number of steps by the OIG, "was the recovery of thousands of text messages within the period of the missing text messages, December 15, 2016 through May 17, 2017, as well as hundreds of other text messages outside the gap period that had not been produced by the FBI due to technical problems with its text message collection tool."

The time period in question is after the 2016 presidential election and up to the appointment of Robert Mueller's Special Counsel. Page worked on the Special Counsel investigation until July 2017 and used the same phone during that time period. The same goes for Strzok, who also worked for Mueller and had the same phone. When Page and Strzok left the Special Counsel, their phones were wiped by Special Counsel Records Officer. DOJ maintains this was simply standard procedure in order to give the device to another user.

Text messages prior to the election show Strzok and Page repeatedly discussing how to "stop" then candidate Trump from becoming President of the United States.

The OIG did not produce the content of the text messages in its report.

"The OIG forensically recovered thousands of text messages from FBI mobile devices issued to Strzok and Page through its multiple extraction efforts. Approximately 9,311 text messages were recovered from Strzok's S5 ," the report states. "Approximately 10,760 text messages were recovered from Page's S5."

California Democrat Proposes Right to Shelter for Every Homeless Person in State

While we’re at it let’s outlaw Crime Too

California State Sen. Scott Wiener (D-San Francisco) has introduced a bill that would guarantee a “right to shelter” and provide housing for every homeless person in the state.

The bill, SB 48, declares: “This bill would state the intent of the Legislature to enact legislation that creates a right to shelter for unhoused residents throughout the state.”

According to the bill, the “right to shelter” would include:

(1) A safe place to sleep and keep one’s belongings.

(2) An ability to access the shelter without having to sign up on a daily basis.
(3) An ability to remain with one’s partner.
(4) An ability to access services necessary to stabilize one’s life and transition into supportive housing or permanent housing, including mental health, addiction treatment, and other services.
However, the bill does not explain how the state will pay for the cost of providing the “right to shelter.”

Last year, 114,000 homeless people were estimated to live in California — more than a quarter of the nation’s total, according to the New York Times. Some come from other states to take advantage of generous welfare benefits and better weather.

Wiener’s bill does not explain how it will deal with the problem of migration, especially once shelter is guaranteed (at least by law).

We’ll drop them all off at his place

Clinton Whistleblowers: Thursdays Public Hearing to Reveal Explosive Information

A trove of documents on the Clinton Foundation alleging possible pay for play and tax evasion have been turned over to the FBI and IRS by several investigative whistleblowers, who will be testifying in an open hearing before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Thursday, according to the committee and lawmakers.

Roughly 6,000 documents that are expected to reveal the nearly two-year investigation by the whistleblowers with a private firm called MDA Analytics LLC, which allegedly turned over the documents more than a year and a half ago to the IRS, according to John Solomon, who first published the report last week in The Hill.

The whistleblowers are former federal criminal investigators, who allege that the Clinton Foundation was “engaged in illegal activities and may be liable for millions of dollars in delinquent taxes and penalties,” according to Solomon.

The Department of Justice and the FBI’s Little Rock, Ark. field office, which is believed to be investigating the foundation, have allegedly obtained the documentation from the whistleblowers as well, according to lawmakers who’ve spoken with the whistleblowers

Can you say Pay for Play? Sure you can

Mao would be Proud

Democrat Rep. Ted Lieu: ‘I Would Love’ To Regulate Speech

In a segment on CNN Tuesday afternoon, Rep. Ted Lieu (D-California) lamented that the First Amendment prevents him from regulating speech.

CNN’s Brianna Keilar asked the congressman if he missed an opportunity to hammer Google CEO Sundar Pichai about the search engine’s vulnerability to be co-opted by foreign governments and bad actors. In response, Lieu said he wished he could regulate speech.

“I would love to be able to regulate the content of speech,” Lieu said. “The First Amendment prevents me from doing so and that’s simply a function of the First Amendment.”

“Over the long run, it’s better that government does not regulate the content of speech,” he added, before encouraging companies to police speech.

“I would urge these private-sector companies to regulate better themselves, but it’s really nothing that I believe government can do,” he said.

Lieu’s comments fall in line with the Democratic Party’s platform, which explicitly calls for overturning the First Amendment to enable lawmakers to regulate who can say what about politicians.

“We will fight to end the broken campaign finance system, overturn the disastrous Citizens United decision, restore the full power of the Voting Rights Act, and return control of our elections to the American people,” the party platform states.

This Moron needs to be hounded till he resigns

NY AG Elect says she intends to go after Trump and his family even if she has to change law to do it

Wow, that’s some banana Republic shit

New York Attorney Gen.-elect Letitia James says she plans to launch sweeping investigations into President Donald Trump, his family and "anyone" in his circle who may have violated the law once she settles into her new job next month.

"We will use every area of the law to investigate President Trump and his business transactions and that of his family as well," James, a Democrat, told NBC News in her first extensive interview since she was elected last month.

James outlined some of the probes she intends to pursue with regard to the president, his businesses and his family members. They include:

Any potential illegalities involving Trump's real estate holdings in New York, highlighting a New York Times investigation published in October into the president's finances.
The June 2016 Trump Tower meeting with a Russian official.
Examine government subsidies Trump received, which were also the subject of Times investigative work.
Whether he is in violation of the emoluments clause in the U.S. Constitution through his New York businesses.
Continue to probe the Trump Foundation.
"We want to investigate anyone in his orbit who has, in fact, violated the law," said James, who was endorsed by New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

James campaigned on passing a bill to change New York's double jeopardy laws with an eye on possible pardons coming out of the White House. James told NBC News she wants to be able to pursue state charges against anyone the president were to pardon over federal charges or convictions and whose alleged crimes took place in the state. Under current New York law, she might not be able to do that.

"I think within the first 100 days this bill will be passed," she said, adding, "It is a priority because I have concerns with respect to the possibility that this administration might pardon some individuals who might face some criminal charges, but I do not want them to be immune from state charges."

She's also enlisting help from some prosecutorial heavy hitters, like former U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch, as a part of her transition to help her identify important hires for her office with an eye on bringing in experts for its Trump-related investigations.

New York is home to the president's namesake business, the Trump Organization, and it is where Trump's presidential campaign was headquartered and his reelection campaign as well. And it is where a number of key events under special counsel Robert Mueller's microscope, such as the controversial June 2016 Trump Tower meeting, took place. All of that falls within James' jurisdiction.

As a result, she is about to become one of the most recognizable — and powerful — state attorneys general in the country.

"Taking on President Trump and looking at all of the violations of law I think is no match to what I have seen in my lifetime," James said.

Currently the city's public advocate for a few more weeks, James is set to take over for New York Attorney General Barbara Underwood. She was appointed to fill in for the remainder of Eric Schneiderman's term after he resigned earlier this year following accusations of sexual misconduct.

The most prominent litigation between the attorney general's office and the president involves the Trump Foundation. Schneiderman began probing the charity in 2016 and Underwood later filed the lawsuit against Trump, his adult children and the foundation in June.

The foundation is accused of engaging in illegal political coordination with the Trump campaign, self-dealing and violating legal obligations. The Trumps and the foundation could face millions of dollars in penalties as a result. Trump's lawyers tried and failed to have the case thrown out in New York state Supreme Court, alleging the probe was politically motivated.

Underwood also was investigating whether Trump has violated the emoluments clause of the U.S. Constitution, which generally prohibits federal officials from receiving gifts or payments from foreign or state governments.

The White House, Trump Organization, an attorney representing the company and Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani did not respond to requests for comment.

Harvard Law professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz told NBC News that the president has "considerably more vulnerability" when faced with New York state investigations because he can't hold out the offer of pardons or fire investigators, though he said James' scope would be limited to matters occurring before Trump became president.

He added that it remains an open question as to whether a sitting president can be charged with a state crime.

For her part, James said she thinks Mueller's "doing an excellent job."

"I think he's closing in on this president," she said, "and his days are going to be coming to an end shortly."

Who does she think she is? Obama?

Mika Brzezinski—co-host of MSNBC's Morning Joe—expressed dismay and anger at Secretary of State Mike Pompeo after he persistently defended Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, despite the murder of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

But Brzezinski expressed that point in language that struck many viewers as homophobic.

"I understand that Donald Trump doesn't care.... He doesn't care. But why doesn't Mike Pompeo care right now?" Brzezinski said on-air. "Are the pathetic deflections that we just heard—when he appeared on Fox & Friends—is that a patriot speaking? Or a wannabe dictator's butt-boy?"

Brzezinski quickly walked back the comments on Twitter, agreeing with someone who said she should have used a different phrase such as "lackey" or "stool pigeon."

Just a small point, Mike Pompeo was number 1 in his West Point Class. She is a brain dead Assclown unfit to shine his Combat Boots

Flynn Gave FBI Agents Tour of White House Was Joking With Them NO IDEA He Was Being Interrogated

General Mike Flynn’s sentencing memo was filed Tuesday evening and it further proved that the FBI agents ambushed him to get him in a perjury trap.

General Flynn’s lawyers asked the judge for no jail time and instead “to sentence him to a term of probation not to exceed one year, with minimal conditions of supervision, along with 200 hours of community service

They told Flynn not to have his lawyer present. He thought it was a social visit.

This was on January 24th — four days after the Inauguration.

Flynn had NO IDEA he was being interrogated. This is how the Deep State criminals operate.

Flynn thought is was some sort of training session.

In fact Michael Flynn gave the FBI creatures a tour of his White House wing, joking with them, thinking it was some kind of training session!

They set him up. They spied on him! They spied on Trump. They spied on Trump’s daughter. They sent in operatives to spy on the Trump campaign. And then they charged Mike Flynn with lying to investigators when he did not even know he was being interrogated!
This is pure evil!
This is today’s Democrat party!
This is the today’s liberal media!
This is the deep state.

One possible reason Hillary Clinton looked distracted during Bush funeral

Tens of millions of dollars went directly to the Clinton Foundation from foreign governments or other entities during Hillary Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state.

That those governments and entities stood to benefit from Clinton’s position “seems to pose inherent conflicts of interest” and United States Attorney John Huber is currently investigating for alleged wrongdoing, an in depth report said.The Clinton Foundation has raised more than $2 billion since it was founded in 1997. Bill and Hillary Clinton have been paid more than $150 million for delivering speeches. “Notably, these payments increased dramatically after Hillary Clinton took office as secretary of state in 2009,” The Epoch Times reported on Dec. 5.

A scheduled testimony by Huber before Congress was postponed in response to the funeral of President George H.W. Bush.

“Huber with the Department of Justice and FBI has been having an investigation, at least part of his task was to look at the Clinton Foundation and what may or may not have happened as it relates to improper activity with that charitable foundation,” Rep. Mark Meadows, North Carolina Republican, told The Hill on Nov. 20.

A memorandum of understanding (MOU) between the Clinton Foundation and President Barack Obama’s presidential transition team “outlined certain requirements for Hillary Clinton’s confirmation as secretary of state in 2009. The MOU identified a set of protocols that supposedly addressed concerns about possible foreign influence,” the report said.

In the MOU, the foundation committed to increased and timely disclosure of payments, an annual publication of donors, and restrictions on donations from foreign governments.

The MOU “was violated almost immediately, and would be so repeatedly (in spirit and in letter) throughout Clinton’s tenure,” The Epoch Times report noted.

For example, the report said, “from the beginning of Clinton’s tenure in 2009, the Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI) never reported any of its foreign donors, as acknowledged by CHAI spokeswoman Maura Daley in 2015. Other significant violations include the failure to report donors annually, the failure to disclose foreign government donations, and the failure to submit donations and speech payments for ethics reviews.”
The report notes that the Clintons also received tens of millions of dollars in the form of Bill Clinton’s speaking fees and consulting arrangements. “Instead of these payments being reviewed by neutral or third-party ethics officials, they were reviewed by the State Department under Hillary Clinton and the process specifically involved longtime Clinton lawyer Cheryl Mills,” the report said.
Additionally, the report noted, the State Department operated without an inspector general for the entirety of Hillary Clinton’s tenure – an unprecedented duration without a watchdog in place.
The report also raised numerous conflict of interest.

One primary such concerns involved Huma Abedin’s role at the State Department. A “controversial SGE (special government employee) waiver allowed her to simultaneously work for Clinton, the State Department, the Clinton Foundation, and consulting firm Teneo Strategies,” the report noted. “For example, Teneo – a for-profit firm co-founded by Doug Band – paid Abedin $355,000, while State paid her $135,000 as an SGE. Abedin frequently corresponded with Clinton Foundation and Teneo executive Band and helped grant favors to Clinton Foundation donors and Teneo clients.”

Emails first revealed by Judicial Watch show that Band, a longtime personal assistant to Bill Clinton, frequently emailed Clinton State Department aides requesting favors for Clinton Foundation donors. Abedin would usually respond immediately to indicate the favor request had been received and was under consideration. Favors were granted to foundation donors, leading to widespread criticisms of “pay to play.”

A leaked 2011 internal memo drafted by Band revealed Teneo had approximately 20 clients – many of whom are also Clinton donors. In his memo, Band described Teneo as an agent for “Bill Clinton, Inc.” that was dedicated to “helping the President secure and engage in for-profit activities – including speeches, books, and advisory service engagements.” Band also helped negotiate “in-kind services for the President and his family – for personal travel, hospitality, vacation, and the like.”
Another angle being looked at the Clinton Foundation case is how, upon becoming secretary of state, Hillary Clinton, as a 2011 Daily Beast report noted, “wrested control of USAID and influence over billions in foreign assistance.”
USAID funded numerous multimillion-dollar “partnerships” with Clinton benefactors. The grants were made in close proximity to payments to the Clinton Foundation. One example is the timing of USAID grants to a charity run by Bill Clinton’s friend Doug Becker, the Epoch Times report said.

Becker is the founder of Laureate Education Inc. and heads the International Youth Foundation (IYF). In 2008, Laureate became a Clinton Global Initiative partner and pledged $10 million in scholarships. Laureate also is listed as a $1 million to $5 million donor to the Clinton Foundation. In 2009, Bill Clinton began giving speeches at Laureate campuses in Spain, Brazil, and Peru.

In August 2009, then-Secretary Clinton told Mills to invite Becker (“who Bill likes a lot”) to a State Department dinner. Hillary Clinton made Laureate part of her State Department Global Partnership, and her undersecretary praised Laureate for “doing such important work.”

In April 2010, Laureate appointed Bill Clinton as their “honorary chancellor” and paid him $16.46 million over the next five years. Also, in 2010, Laureate and the IYF announced a joint $10 million commitment to the Clinton Foundation.

While Becker’s Laureate paid Bill Clinton more than $16 million between 2010 and 2015, USAID grants to Becker’s IYF increased from $9 million in 2009 to $25.5 million in 2012. USAID granted $55 million from 2010 to 2012 to the IYF.

Bill Clinton abruptly resigned from Laureate in April 2015 – the same month his relationship with Laureate was exposed in the book “Clinton Cash.”

USAID operates under “substantial guidance from the Secretary of State,” according to 64 lawmakers in a July 2016 letter to IRS Commissioner John Koskinen, “which creates an appearance that millions of dollars in taxpayer money was channeled to IYF by Secretary Clinton’s State Department as a kickback for her husband’s generous contract as an honorary Laureate chancellor.”

The Epoch Times report also details how Clinton donors cashed in on a devastating earthquake that rocked Haiti in 2010; the Clinton Foundation’s ties to the Uranium One scandal; and how the foundation failed to disclose large payments from foreign governments such as Qatar and Algeria.

Tony Shaffer (ex Military Intelligence) Smokes John Brennan in one Tweet

JOHN BRENNAN keeps exposing himself as a hateful and biased former CIA director for Barack Obama. We’ve seen it over and over on social media where the seething dislike for President Trump is revealed.

CIA Directors are supposed to be apolitical and certainly remain silent about sitting presidents. Brennan just can’t help himself. He has delivered tweet after nasty tweet directed at President Trump

Brennan tweeted:

Whenever you send out such inane tweets, I take great solace in knowing that you realize how much trouble you are in & how impossible it will be for you to escape American justice. Mostly, I am relieved that you will never have the opportunity to run for public office again

Shaffer Tweeted:

Whenever we see you tweeting like a seditious clown @JohnBrennan we know you are projecting your guilt and corruption in your own vile effort to continue to deceive the American people…you know how much blood you have on your hands and the treason you have committed…tic-toc

Brennan WILL Hang for his Crime
