Once again, for those of you who follow me on America Out Loud, for the past two plus years I’ve been writing about the Russia Collusion scandal, the abuse and criminal use of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrants, and the politicization and weaponization of intelligence – from General Flynn’s deceptive, frivolous, and fraudulent illegal charges against him, to the fabricated and unadulterated bullshit of the fake dossier against President Trump. This article begins the final prologue of the end of the Obama administration’s orchestrated plan to take down candidate, then President Donald J. Trump, well before he was the preeminent Republican candidate and nominee for the Presidency. This article begins with the henchmen who devised, planned, and implemented the actual ‘silent coup d’état’ against candidate Trump, and now President Trump. You also need to remember and recall that I have been predicting what is currently happening, nearly exactly as it is going down, since most Americans became aware of it in late 2016.
With the forthcoming next set of shoes to drop; the Department of Justice (DOJ) Inspector General Report, the full Mueller Report, and President Trump’s declassification and release of the FISA documents, comprised of the initial FISA applications and there justification, and the actual warrants – ominous dark clouds are moving in around Washington, DC. The feeling among many is threatening and inauspicious — giving the impression that something bad or unpleasant is going to happen.
So with that, the first question many are asking is who should we be watching and be aware of who perhaps will be the first to fall. To answer that question, we must fully understand what has been going on for the last nearly two and a half years.
Remember all of this was implemented for the sole purpose of ensuring Hillary Clinton’s winning of the presidency. Secondly, there was the fallback position, or ‘insurance policy’ of a plan devised to destroy Donald Trump should Hillary Clinton lose the election. This of course, is the crux of the scandal we are now dealing with. It gave the Democrats, the political-left, and the mainstream media the false-narrative of how they could claim the election was stolen by Donald Trump through creating the false-narrative that Trump colluded with the Russians and Vladimir Putin.
The Obama administration needed to establish a multi-faceted plan involving the work of the DOJ, FBI, State Department, and the Intelligence Community to prepare the various methods, tactics, documents, and to manipulate and facilitate the political and legal authorities needed to carry out the greatest scandal in American history.
So who are the corrupt and unscrupulous officials at the top of the Obama administration’s law enforcement and Intelligence Community’s leadership? Leading the now overt “I’m really worried” list are James Comey, John Brennan, James Clapper, Loretta Lynch, Susan Rice and Andrew McCabe and what about Hillary Clinton and former UN Ambassador Samantha Power, along with their most senior level staffers within the DOJ, the FBI, the senior levels of the Intelligence Community, as well as the State Department. All or most are Obama administration political appointees, left-leaning and or Democrats. As part of the so-called “insurance policy,” they all expected Hillary Clinton to win the November 2016 Election. After which, they would have been responsible for destroying and or burying any traces of malfeasance — just as they had done so with Clinton’s emails, hard-drives and cell phones – hammers, bleach-bit and shredders. Unfortunately, it didn’t go the way as planned and or anticipated, and so the “cover-up”, the lying, the false-narrative, the spying, and the treason began. Of course, that didn’t work out either. And this is why we are where we are now!
Now they need to protect themselves, like they never ever dreamed. U.S. House Democrats and anonymous leakers are busy providing it. Many are delicately called “current and former senior officials” by the New York Times, Washington Post, and other legacy mainstream media. One has to wonder who they are. Of course, we know, but those names remain secret until they are ready to bring them forward as witnesses or criminals. And they have once again turned to the dark side of illegal procedures, corrupt manipulation, and their standard practice of the politics of personal destruction and character assassinations against those now investigating them
These so-called defenders, i.e.; Democrat left-wing political cronies of the Democrat-wing of the Establishment old guard are as expected and anticipated now sliming Attorney General Bill Barr, who heads the investigation into their actions. They undoubtedly have good reasons, if not clean hands, for their attack. First, they want to keep as much of the telltale and revealing evidence secret as they can. Exposure can only seriously harm them, and they know it all too well. Of course, their main argument is that any disclosures will damage U.S. national security. As a career senior intelligence officer — in this case and as it pertains to the intelligence information in question, that’s complete and utter non-sense, et al bullshit! Second, they want to paint the disclosures and forthcoming indictments as President Trump’s revenge, the illegitimate use of powerful agencies that should be nonpartisan. That, of course, is precisely what ‘they’ are accused and actually the evidence proves they were doing – the know evidence it mind-boggling, overwhelming and yes, as the President noted is proof of out-and-out treason, on a number of these Obama henchmen and spies.
Fortunately, as we have clearly seen in black and white, Attorney General Barr won’t be deterred. As we witnessed, and it is obviously and clearly known, he did not return for a second stint as attorney general to pad his résumé or protect Donald Trump. He returned to clean out the Augean Stables. He needs to clean out the mess left by his predecessors and find and hunt down those that left it that way. He most certainly is a patriot who has taken on trying to drain the swamp. He’s getting it done … so far so good!
Further, AG Barr is determined more and more every day to do just that as he investigates and finds more and more dirt. AG Bar most certainly intends to find out how and why the Department of Justice embarked on an all-consuming, two-year plus project to investigate President Trump’s alleged cooperation with Putin’s Russia to win the presidency. Certainly, this was most obvious as the investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller found no such cooperation (going well beyond saying he simply could not indict). Now, AG Barr wants to understand the origins of the probe and whether the tools used to launch it were lies and or distortions — and were known to be so and intentional by DOJ, FBI, and CIA officials, and for the now obvious reasons. Similarly, AG Barr wants to know if U.S. intelligence agencies were deliberately used to spy illegally on Americans, or if they outsourced that to friendly foreign services, and then recovered the information from them. He wants to know if the investigations really began in July 2016, as the FBI testified, or earlier, and what evidence was used to begin them. As I have noted in previous writings and discussions, it clearly began well before July 2016 and perhaps as early as March 2016 or earlier. Not to mention Obama’s political spying going back to at least 2012, which is another story in and of itself.
As we have seen and heard, much of the uproar of the Democrats, their left-wing political pundits, and the mainstream media loose it and dare call it “spying.’ At the very least no Democrats or Obama officials will ever. Again as a career intelligence professional and senior intelligence officer — that’s exactly what it was! To barrow a famous quote, recall as that master of the English language, Winston Churchill, famously put it, “… short words are best and old words when short are best of all…” Certainly, that’s far too clear for bureaucratic obfuscators, presidential contenders, and their media allies. They prefer long, Latinate terms like “surveillance” and “surreptitious investigation.” Again, folks, as a career intelligence professional and senior intelligence officer, understand; surveillance, surreptitious investigation, sneak and peek search warrants (officially called a Delayed Notice Warrant) and also called a covert entry search warrant or a surreptitious entry, or overt and covert collection” are all forms of spying. AG Barr is effectively telling them to “pound sand.”
While those of us who are subject matter experts in intelligence and spying, and have had some access to process understand before-hand, what exactly is underway and occurring. Over the next few months, the public will finally see what kind of malfeasance there was, by as I have referred to the Obama’s “henchmen and spies.” At least they will see some of it, in order to get a better understanding to make and draw conclusions, which will be straight forward and more than obvious as to what occurred. Some of the intelligence information will remain classified to protect sources and methods, as is always the case. The take away from that means it is quite accurate and legit, thus the reason to protect highly sensitive apparatus and capabilities we done want our enemies and adversaries to know about. Some information will be released only after criminal charges are filed by the appropriate authority. Trust me, there will be more than most will expect. Guaranteed. So where will the information come from, well there are multiple documents that contain the most damning evidence. The initial evidence will come from two sources: the long-awaited major report by DoJ Inspector General (IG) Michael Horowitz, and the steady declassification of underlying documents by AG Barr, who was given that task by President Trump. Understand, AG Barr needed that authority because the FBI and the Intelligence Community had been resisting disclosure with all their institutional power. They fear years of abuse will be exposed. There however is no concern here pertaining to that by the attorney general. He’s been granted the necessary authority and is going in ‘no holds barred,’ no pun intended – the attorney general’s job find the culprit, criminals, and loopholes, shortcomings in policy and procedures to ensure as the president said, should never be able to
It is necessary for one to realize and understand that IG Horowitz, is a highly regarded career prosecutor, initially appointed by President Obama. He will issue a public report and is virtually certain to make criminal referrals. Those referrals will then be handled by John Durham, a skilled, apolitical U.S. attorney, who has successfully prosecuted major corruption cases for AGs in both parties. He is a no nonsense professional he goes by the book. As I’ve been told, Mr. Durham, has apparently already convened a grand jury. Likewise, another federal prosecutor, John Huber, has been working on related issues dealing with the scandal. Prosecutor Durham will coordinate, with Huber and will be supervised by AG Barr.
The most important or one of the most import aspects of these investigations are that these joint efforts will show whether there were good or suspect legal reasons to spy on Americans, whether the secret FISA intelligence courts were given complete and honest information before they issued search warrants, whether top officials leaked secret information to the media, and whether U.S. intelligence agencies (which cannot legally spy on Americans) evaded and ignored that restriction. They will likely provide evidence and also show if outside contractors illegally tapped into classified databases and spied on American citizens, including political opponents, to include President Trump.
I cannot emphasize how serious this is for Americans, the law, the Constitution and the nation. We for the most part have never seen such corrupt levels of abuse in our nation. I must also add that it is important to watch the likes of Brennan, Clapper, Comey, and others going out on daily talk shows and in the print media with the most extreme positions in an attempt to defend themselves. The Deep State and these people are in such desperate panic modes, that they are digging deeper holes every time they open their months in an effort to desperately shape the narrative in the 11th hour. They are now truly in self- preservation mode. And then there is also Representatives Adam Schiff and Jerrold Nadler of the U.S. House Intelligence and Judiciary Committees respectively, who are also desperately covering-up, distracting, and desperately lying through their teeth to protect Obama’s henchmen and spies. Why, because again, these are very serious, in fact extremely serious charges, and, if proven, serious crimes.
What makes these crimes worse — far worse — is that they may well be connected to each other. If they are, they would represent a high-level conspiracy by the Obama government officials and remaining Deep State operatives planted by the Obama administration, appointed by one party and directed at political opponents during and after the 2016 election.
While, this assault on democracy and our Republic has not been proven, but the evidence emerging in the slow drip strongly suggests the possibility. If it is proven, and if the Obama White House was directly involved, as numerous FBI texts plainly say, the scandal would be one of the biggest, if not the biggest in American history.
That of course, raises the question; How big? Big enough that major news organizations, which always favor transparency, are now deeply troubled by the release of any secret documents. They know the stakes are too high and transparency too dangerous for their side, politically.
I bring to bear all my intelligence expertise, sources who feed and share my information to increase the joint know on this scandal. To be perfectly honest, right now, we can only guess how big the scandal is, how extensive the coordination was, and how far up it went, though it is obvious it went to Obama. Of course, we certainly need to know, just as we needed to know if Donald Trump won the presidency by cooperating with a hostile foreign power. He did not, according to the Mueller report. Now, we also need to know if the federal government under Obama and his Deep State operatives deliberately worked secretly and illegally to attempt to prevent Donald Trump’s election and, when that failed, to implement their pre-devised insurance policy to damage his new presidency. That conspiracy in and of itself would be equally serious, and for the same reasons. Likewise, those aspects of the scandal also needs to be investigated and revealed, exposed, and punished to the fullest extent of the law.
Which brings up the issue of punishment. What will be the consequences? Who will go to prison, who will present states evidence in exchange for exposing their colleagues, cohorts, supervisors, etc., and who will avoid jail time. They’re already pointing fingers at each other – how will that play out? And what about the extent of the crimes from lying, braking federal law, and the “T”-word; Treason, as the President mentioned last week. Americans have forgotten what ‘treason’ actually means — and how it can be abused. Treason the offense of attempting to overthrow the government of one’s country or of aiding, abetting, or assisting its enemies in war.
This investigation and process by AG Barr goes back to our founders and how they envisioned the law and the Constitution to work together in the name of justice and freedom. Understand from that, the fundamental problem was identified by James Madison, who led the drafting of our Constitution. “In framing a government which is to be administered by men over men,” he wrote in Federalist Paper #51 (“The Structure of the Government Must Furnish the Proper Checks and Balances between the different departments) — the great difficulty lies in this: you must first enable the government to control the governed; and in the next place oblige it to control itself. Unfortunately, and not by accident but deliberately and intentional under the corrupt and defiant leadership under the likes of Comey, Lynch, Brennan, and Clapper, and the rest and under the oversight and ultimate decision-making responsibilities of both Obama and Biden, it failed to control itself. The damage will be compounded by partisan divisions, corroding trust in our basic institutions, and by the forthcoming and impending forthcoming 2020 election.
Again as I’ve been constantly saying, over the next several months, America will learn the nearly full extent of that failure. We will observe and witness if top Obama administration officials misused their agencies, their power and authority and abused the law in order to deliberately and intentionally attempt to investigate and crush their political opponents, both Democrat and Republicans. Constitutional democracies cannot permit that. They cannot wave it off as yesterday’s news and expect to survive unscathed. If undetected and unpunished, it will happen again to another party, another candidate. As President Trump said, this can never happen again to another administration, ever!
