What We Know Versus What We Suspect, Part I
Over the past several years, an incredible amount of otherwise secretive government-related information has leaked into the public domain about political corruption, criminal conspiracies, pay-for-play, and other crimes among the US political class. We know a great deal now that we would never have known if Hillary Clinton had succeeded in stealing her way into the Oval Office. But the question is, what is hidden underneath that which is already in the public domain? Let’s look at some of what has been uncovered and do a little bit of “reasonable speculation.”
First off, the Awan brothers House IT server scandal. A good summary is provided here, with implications as to what likely transpired. And yet Imran Awan got a sweetheart deal from the DoJ, and the whole affair was swept under the rug with no subsequent prosecutions for the likely espionage-related crimes:
Awan was arrested at Dulles airport while attempting to flee the country – one day after reports emerged that the FBI had seized a number of “smashed hard drives” and other computer equipment from his residence.
While only charged with bank fraud, there is ample evidence that the Awans were spying on members of Congress through their access to highly-sensitive information on computers, servers and other electronic devices belonging to members of Congress.
Awan and several family members worked for Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz along with 20% of House Democrats as IT staffers who held – as the House Inspector General called it – the “keys to the kingdom,” when it came to accessing confidential information on Congressional computer systems.
[T]he judge in the Awan case, Tanya Chutkan, was appointed to the D.C. US District Court by President Obama on June 5, 2014, after Chutkan had contributed to him for years. [T]he Judge [was] appointed by Obama after years of contributing to him, was a partner at a very Clinton-friendly law firm. Reference to the sweetheart deal here.
Does this seem like a cover-up to you? Almost certainly! We can easily speculate on what was conveniently hidden by a corrupt DoJ, FBI, and an Obama-appointed judge. The Awan brothers were hip-deep in espionage activities, but on whose behalf? With Pakistan long an ally of the Chinese, it would not surprise me at all if the Awans et al were agents controlled directly by Pakistan’s Inter-Service Intelligence (ISI). The fact that they had the access to House Democrat email accounts would indicate that what was stolen and likely passed on (or sold) to China (and others) was so sensitive that political careers would have been terminated and indeed, several congressmen arrested for compromising classified information (and other crimes – both legal and/or political – such as insider trading and weaponizing the federal bureaucracy against political opponents).
I have long suspected that House Democrats were knowledgeable of and interacted with one or more of Hillary’s personal email accounts on her private server, too. Hillary has always been about gaining proxy control over political allies by corrupting them in order to control them. I am convinced that Hillary’s email server and the House IT server contained a LOT of pay-for-play emails that show the rampant corruption and sale of highly classified US technologies to our adversaries – in short, there are House Democrats who had their beaks in Hillary’s trough.
Next, let’s examine the FISA abuse during the Obama regime. On the surface, based on publicly disclosed texts among principals in the FBI who were involved, FISA warrant applications were falsified and misrepresented to the FISC judges at LEAST four times of which we know. Here are some of the incriminating details:
As more of the secret evidence used to justify the Russia probe becomes public, an increasingly dark portrait of the FBI’s conduct emerges.
The bureau, under a Democratic-controlled Justice Department, sought a warrant to spy on the duly nominated GOP candidate for president in the final weeks of the 2016 election, based on evidence that was generated under a contract paid by his political opponent.
That evidence, the Steele dossier, was not fully vetted by the bureau and was deemed unverified months after the warrant was issued.
At least one news article was used in the FISA warrant to bolster the dossier as independent corroboration when, it fact, it was traced to a news organization that had been in contact with Steele, creating a high likelihood it was circular intelligence reporting.
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. Reference to the FBI email chain here.
And here is a decent overview of the illegalities and 4th Amendment violations from these activities that should be of concern to every American.
Our best shot at understanding what transpired in these abuses resides with the potential declassification and release of the FISA warrant applications to the general public. Until that happens, we know that at least the DoJ IG is still investigating the Obama DoJ/FBI FISA abuses.
Will the DoJ IG disclose what truly transpired and make referrals for prosecution for ALL of those involved? That remains to be seen, given that no one has been held accountable to date. I also suspect that the OIG is trying to limit the scope and damage to “preserve the integrity of the institutions.” Not there’s much integrity left at either the DoJ or FBI after what crimes have been publicly disclosed over the last couple of years! The DoJ and FBI need to PROVE to me that they have returned to the principles of blind justice (without political taint), the application of equal justice under the law to all Americans, and the following of the evidence to wherever it leads before they will regain my trust! Here is some informed speculation about the whole FISA abuse topic:
All of the FISA warrant apps aimed against the Trump campaign and its various advisers were fraudulently prepared and certified by the FBI, signed under false pretenses by DoJ personnel, and approved by politically-corrupt FISC judges. The likelihood that these were the ONLY FISA abuses during the Obama regime is precisely ZERO. Can anyone seriously believe that these particular actions against the Trump campaign were mere aberrations?
We know that Obama’s crew spied on journalists and even members of Congress. Here’s a running list of the Obama regime’s abuse of journalists.
Here is a news report about Obama spying on members of Congress, with politically motivated accusations from Sen. Diane Feinstein (D-CA), no less.
Here is some evidence that Obama’s FISA abuse and spying on domestic political enemies commenced from the very beginning of his regime. The evidence details “specific violations that the NSA or FBI disclosed to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court or the Justice Department’s national security division during President Obama’s tenure between 2009 and 2016”.
I believe that the FISA abuse is far more widespread than what has been disclosed to date, and that there’s a less than 50-50 chance that we will get a window into all of it because the abuse ultimately serves the political class (both political parties). What better way to keep tabs on Americans who might wish to thwart Uniparty/globalist policies?
Remember that the political class are our enemies and serve themselves before they ever deign to serve us! They are flip sides of the same coin and protect their continued power and control over all other considerations.
I also suspect that the Obama White House political operation – including Valerie Jarrett, Rahm Emmanuel, Jim Messina, Ben Rhodes, both Obamas, and others – were intimately involved in managing the illegal domestic surveillance of their political foes throughout Obama’s 8 years in power. This abuse will likely be swept under the rug, too, because of the political ramifications that would stem from the disclosure that a sitting president was up to his eyeballs in this criminal surveillance against fellow Americans. #Spygate is a scandal of epic proportions that makes Watergate look like child’s play!
We’re just getting started, folks. Like icebergs, there is FAR MORE that is hidden beneath the surface than the visible parts – and that which is hidden is truly shocking! I am going to pause here and present more informed speculation in Part II of this series.
