Fighting Russian Interference In American Politics

It shouldn’t take a Special Counsel investigation to identify and expose Russian activities we know have been going on for a century.  It is time for America to get back in the counterintelligence fight by cleaning house and getting rid of incompetent counterintelligence operatives such as the FBI's Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, and it is time for Congress, as it did with the HUAC investigations, to plumb the full depth of Russian efforts to sow discord in our country.

Is It Time To Shut Down The FBI?

It's time for radical change at the Department of Justice where Attorney General Jeff Sessions has been hobbled by careerist underlings, such as FBI Director Wray and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who have worked harder at protecting their fellow careerists and their institutional turf than they have worked at protecting the American people.

Investigating The Messenger #HeadsMustRoll

Instead of looking into whether one of the highest-ranking officials in the United States government had been compromised by a foreign power, the Obama-era FBI and Department of Justice decided to investigate the messenger, a political small fry with no power to affect policy or, for example, approve selling 20 percent of America’s uranium to the Russians.

Did Russian Comics Write the Dossier(s)?

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

No wonder the Democratic Party are squealing like stuck pigs.  They are. And no wonder the mainstream media is doing their best to hide the reality of this case in so many aspects from everybody, especially themselves.  Not only is it evil to try to manipulate a campaign and then a presidency with fallacious material, it's appalling to do it so stupidly.

#HeadsMustRoll Why There Must Be A Special Counsel To Investigate FISA Abuse

The Steele criminal referral we reported on last week in essence asks the FBI to investigate a source with whom FBI officials collaborated, and whose evidence they used in a fashion that’s under congressional investigation. The referral reveals the deep conflicts of interest of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and others who signed the questionable wiretap applications using the Steele dossier.

House Memo Details Use of Steele Dossier to Spy on Trump Campaign Adviser

Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review

The memo is a valuable first step. It underscores the continuing need to assess how deeply the FBI and Justice Department were enmeshed in the politics of the 2016 election. But much more disclosure is necessary before we can render a conclusive judgment of how deep the problems run.

Rep. Devin Nunes: Twenty-First Century Patriot

There are few patriots in Washington who will stand in the breach and take the pressure, smears and abuse that Devin Nunes has suffered since he resolved to make public the memo about Obama-era FBI and Department of Justice attempts to undermine Donald Trump. All liberty loving Americans of whatever political stripe owe him a debt of gratitude for his patriotism, perseverance and integrity.

FISA Memo Released FBI Assistant Director Resigns

The FBI Director himself read the memo on Sunday night, and HPSCI staffers met with FBI agents on Monday to further discuss its contents. After the memo was released to the FBI Director, FBI Assistant Director Andrew McCabe abruptly resigned. However, it may not have been the FISA memo alone that gave McCabe the push out the door.

What We Know About #ReleaseTheMemo

The Nunes memo is the first official document to summarize and substantiate the explosive charges against Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and former FBI Director James Comey. The public has a right to see that evidence, and Congress has a duty to expose and refer for prosecution all of those involved – especially those who are still serving in government.

#ReleaseTheMemo: Senator Grassley Unloads On FBI And DOJ

If we were betting men, we’d bet that Chairman Chuck Grassley's outrage with the FBI amd DOJ signals he has uncovered evidence that they are neck deep in the peddling of the phony Trump dossier and he’s not happy that the criminals at the Justice Department are now investigating themselves.

Amid shutdown, House GOP shows intense interest in Trump dossier memo

Byron York, Washington Examiner

At this point, some Republicans would have a problem with their base if they didn't release the memo to the public. The memo has become a subject of passionate interest among Trump supporters who are following the dossier investigation. The hashtag #releasethememo has been everywhere on Twitter, and Republican lawmakers have noticed. In the end, even if there is any reluctance among some members or leadership, voter interest is likely to prevail. "It's amazing what the pitchforks and the torches will do," said one lawmaker.

Collusion 3.0: Russia and the NRA

Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review

Even if there is no evidence of a criminal conspiracy — and right now, there appears to be none — the ongoing congressional and special-counsel investigations are supposed to be about determining the extent and nature of Russia’s interference in our election so that we can guard against provocations. One can’t complain about the millions in foreign donations that flowed into the Clinton Foundation and ignore the possibility that foreign donations poured into GOP coffers. Like the earlier iterations, Collusion 3.0 may not implicate the Trump campaign. But that is not the only collusion with Russia worth worrying about.

#ReleaseTheMemo

We urge CHQ readers to join the social media campaign to release the memo on Obama's abuses of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act to the public by tweeting #ReleaseTheMemo, posting this article on Facebook and other social media and calling your Representative (The Toll-Free Capitol Switchboard is 1-866-220-0044) to tell your Member of Congress you want the document released to the public immediately.

Case Against Bundys Dismissed: Obama’s FBI And DOJ Are The Real Criminals

Americans should start asking the larger questions raised by the gross misconduct of the Obama-era FBI and Justice Department that has been revealed in the Bundy trials and the killing of Robert "LaVoy" Finicum: When will those government officials responsible for all the lives destroyed be brought to justice? And, is the same kind of misconduct that was used to try to destroy the Bundys and their allies at work in the Hillary Clinton, Uranium One, Trump dossier and Russian collusion investigations?

As the Dossier Scandal Looms, the New York Times Struggles to Save Its Collusion Tale

Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review

Seven months after throwing Carter Page as fuel on the collusion fire lit by then-FBI director James Comey’s stunning public disclosure that the Bureau was investigating possible Trump campaign “coordination” in Russia’s election meddling, the Gray Lady now says: Never mind. We’re onto Collusion 2.0, in which it is George Papadopoulos — then a 28-year-old whose idea of résumé enhancement was to feign participation in the Model U.N. — who triggered the FBI’s massive probe by . . . wait for it . . . a night of boozy blather in London.

All of Hillary's Foreigners

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

The media says repeatedly that the American people deserve government elections untainted by foreign meddling. Shouldn’t that also apply to government investigations of candidates? The real lesson of 2016 is not that foreign powers try to influence American elections with espionage — that happens all the time — but that our own government, seeking to stop Trump, joined them in it.
