Is Pending IG Report on FISA Abuse Being Held-Up To Facilitate NSA Bulk Data Re-authorization That Expires December 15th?

by sundance{theconservativetreehouse.com } ~ With impeachment headlines absorbing most attention, there is a quiet background story happening in DC where re-authorization of the USA Freedom Act is needed prior to expiration on December 15th… Techno Fog points out the bulk NSA data collection and FISA(702) surveillance programs are part of this reauthorization. Just yesterday, November 6th, the Senate Judiciary Committee held hearings on the reauthorization. “Senators expressed their displeasure Wednesday with the Trump administration’s inability to answer questions about the National Security Agency’s collection of data records”. Which begs the question: Is the current Inspector General report on FISA abuse being delayed due to the need for congress to reauthorize the very same programs the IG is about to criticize? For context to this question, and considering the potential for some surprising revelations within the IG report on FISA, it is worth noting the Office of the Director of National Intelligence held back the the findings of FISA Judge James Boasberg that strongly criticized the FISA-702 process for a year. The Judge Boasberg report was written in September of 2018 but not released redacted until last month. There is a serious problem here…  https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2019/11/07/is-pending-ig-report-on-fisa-abuse-being-held-up-to-facilitate-nsa-bulk-data-re-authorization-that-expires-december-15th/   

House Intelligence Committee Member Calls For scumbag-Schiff To Answer Questions Under Oath

By Molly Prince{dailywire.com } ~ Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) demanded on Tuesday that House Intelligence Committee Chairman scumbag-Adam Schiff (D-CA) testify under oath about his relationship with the whistleblower… who ignited impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump.  “The whistleblower should answer questions under oath. But more importantly, scumbag-Adam Schiff needs to answer questions under oath,” Stefanik told Fox News host Steve Doocy during an appearance on “Fox & Friends.” “I was the first member of Congress to ask when did scumbag-Adam Schiff have access to the whistleblower.” “We know now that that was before the whistleblower submitted his complaint to the inspector general,” she continued. “So there are a lot of serious questions about the coordination between the whistleblower and Chairman scumbag-Schiff.” House Democrats announced in September that they would be moving forward with an impeachment inquiry after a whistleblower’s testimony accused Trump of asking Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate Democratic presidential candidate loose lips liar-Joe Biden for using his position as vice president to remove a Ukrainian prosecutor who was looking into his son’s business dealings…  https://www.dailywire.com/news/watch-house-intelligence-committee-member-calls-for-schiff-to-answer-questions-under-oath?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=benshapiro 

scumbag/liar-nObama’s Ukraine Ambassador Allegedly Lied Under Oath In Impeachment Inquiry, Congressman Suggests

By Ryan Saavedra{dailywire.com } ~ Marie Yovanovitch, who was appointed to be the U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine by former President Barack scumbag/liar-nObama, allegedly made false statements under oath… during her October 11 closed-door testimony in House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry.  “Before the contents of the whistleblower complaint were known publicly, a Democratic congressional staffer contacted the former American ambassador to Ukraine to discuss what the staffer described as ‘quite delicate and time sensitive questions,’” Fox News’ Tucker Carlson exclusively reported. “This show has obtained exclusively an email for that Democratic staffer for the House Foreign Affairs Committee sent by private email to the former American ambassador Marie Yovanovitch,” Carlson continued. “Yovanovitch, you know, is a key player in the Democrats’ impeachment probe and was recalled from her post in Ukraine by President Trump in May 2019 following allegations of serious partisanship and political bias.” The email Carlson obtained states: I’m writing to see if you would have time to meet up for a chat — in particular, I’m hoping to discuss some Ukraine-related oversight questions we are exploring. I’d appreciate the change to ground-truth a few pieces of information with you, some of which are quite delicate/time-sensitive and, thus, we want to make sure we get them right. “That email was sent on August 14, that was two days after the whistleblower complaint was filed and a month before that complaint became public,” Carlson stated. “The whistleblower, however, went to scumbag-Adam Schiff’s team before filing the complaint.” “The question is, did scumbag-Schiff’s office tell other Democrats on Capitol Hill what was in the complaint?” Carlson continued. “In other words, how long did this effort play out in secret before the rest of the country learned of it?” Carlson noted that Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) asked Marie Yovanovitch about the email during her testimony and she allegedly stated that she never responded to the email. “In fact, it turns out that she did respond,” Carlson revealed. “She said she ‘looked forward to chatting with the Democratic staffer.”…  https://www.dailywire.com/news/breaking-obamas-ukraine-ambassador-allegedly-lied-under-oath-in-impeachment-inquiry-congressman-suggests    

JW White Paper Makes Case to Designate Mexican Cartels as Foreign Terrorist Organizations  

by judicialwatch.org ~ As the Trump administration considers designating Mexican drug cartels as Foreign Terrorist Organizations (FTO), Judicial Watch provides comprehensive documentation… that the sophisticated criminal operations meet the U.S. government’s requirements to make the list. In a White Paper released this week Judicial Watch outlines the unique challenges and national security risks posed by Mexican Transitional Criminal Organizations (TCO) and human trafficking. The threats require policy changes that include classifying Mexican TCOs as FTOs and a reassessment of Mexico under the Trafficking Victims Protection Act (TVPA), which requires countries to implement measures that address human trafficking in order to receive American aid. Mexico does not meet the minimum standards in several key areas, according to State Department documents obtained by Judicial Watch for the White Paper. Undoubtedly, Mexican drug cartels meet the U.S. government’s criteria for FTO designation, which requires organizations to be foreign, engage in terrorism or terrorist activity or possess the capability and intent to do so and pose a threat to U.S. nationals or U.S. national security. Mexican drug cartels are inherently foreign, routinely commit criminal acts within the statutory definition of terrorism and arguably represent a more immediate and ongoing threat to U.S. national security than any of the currently-designated FTOs on the State Department list. Properly designating the major Mexican TCOs—including Los Zetas, Juárez and Sinaloa cartels—as FTOs would enhance the federal government’s ability to combat that threat. An official FTO designation would enable the prosecution of those who provide material support to them, facilitate the denial of entry and deportation of TCO members and affiliates and eliminate the organizations’ access to the U.S. financial system. “FTO designations play a critical role in our fight against terrorism and are an effective means of curtailing support for terrorist activities and pressuring groups to get out of the terrorism business,” according to the State Department. For years Mexican cartels have hijacked and sabotaged buses, commercial trucks and trains, activity constituting terrorist activity under U.S. law. The White Paper lists specific cases, including gasoline tankers and more than a dozen robberies daily of Ferromex trains, one of the three largest rail transport operators in the country. Mexican TCOs have also committed hundreds of political assassinations in recent years and members of Los Zetas launched a grenade and shot small arms fire at the U.S. Consulate in Monterrey. Los Zetas members also murdered Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Special Agent Jaime Zapata a few years ago. Judicial Watch’s White Paper also documents Mexican cartels’ use of explosive devices and high-caliber firearms, including rocket-propelled grenades and other military weapons. In 2018 Mexican officials seized nearly 2,000 high-caliber weapons from suspected cartel associates in Mexico City and there have been approximately 150,000 organized-crime related murders in Mexico since 2006. Last year alone, there were nearly 1,200 kidnappings in Mexico, according to official figures provided in the White Paper…  https://www.judicialwatch.org/corruption-chronicles/jw-white-paper-makes-case-to-designate-mexican-cartels-as-foreign-terrorist-organizations/  VIDEO:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0ur1uavy_3s&feature=emb_title

Impeachment in The Courts – HJC vs DOJ Appellate Arguments Scheduled for November 12th

by sundance{theconservativetreehouse.com } ~ There is an important granular aspect to the validity of the House impeachment process that few are paying attention to. If the HJC loses this case in the DC Appellate Court… it means there is no constitutional foundation recognized to the “impeachment inquiry.” Without the constitutional recognition of the judicial branch then: (a) liar-Pelosi/Lawfare have to restart the process with a genuine House vote; or (b) the ongoing impeachment process will have no recognized constitutional standing; and (c) the Senate could ignore any House impeachment vote, cast without recognized constitutional standing. On October 25th DC Judge Beryl Howell granted the House Judiciary Committee (HJC) request for legal authority to receive 6e grand jury material underlying the Mueller report. Additionally, and most importantly, within the Howell decision she officially recognized the HJC effort was predicated on a constitutional impeachment process. In essence Howell’s opinion granted the HJC with “judicial enforcement authority.” The DOJ moved to appeal the decision and requested a “stay” pending appeal.  Judge Howell rejected the DOJ “stay” motion. The DOJ then appealed to the DC Court of Appeals. A panel of three judges issued an “administrative stay”, blocking enforcement of the Howell ruling while the appeal was reviewed. The DC Appellate Court has now scheduled the arguments within the appeal…https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2019/11/07/impeachment-in-the-courts-hjc-vs-doj-appellate-arguments-scheduled-for-november-12th/  

FBI admits to altering Flynn’s interview notes after all

By M. Dowling{independentsentinel.com } ~ Mueller’s probe was over for months, General Flynn had not been sentenced, and then along came Sidney Powell who took the case on… She demanded the documentation used to convict the General — all of it. The entire case rests on the FBI agents’interview notes in which they said he didn’t lie and then said they did. There were changes to the notes and she wants them. They denied there were alterations to the notes but now realize there were. The government now admits there were “alterations” made to Flynn’s interview notes. They switched the names on two sets of notes, one by Peter Strzok and the other by agent Joe Pientka. It’s just an “error” and they’re “sorry” for the “confusion.” The FBI agents interviewed entrapped Flynn in early January 2017 about his conversations with a Russian ambassador. Those conversations, by the way, were legal. “We were informed that the notes we had identified as Peter Strzok’s, were actually the other agent’s notes…and what we had identified as the other agent’s notes were, in fact, Strzok’s notes,” said U.S. Attorney Jessie K Liu said in a statement. “We understand this has caused some confusion and we regret our error.” She’s right! There’s “some confusion.” What does this mean in terms of alterations, exactly? Did Strzok change Pientka’s notes? As a result of this admission, Flynn’s attorney, Sidney Powell, wants the FBI to find all of the interview notes and determine what changes were made and by whom. “The entire case against Mr. Flynn depends on what the agents said that he said in the interview that they didn’t warn him about” or take “any verbatim recordings,” Powell told Fox News Tuesday. “So, their entire case depends on what these two agents said,” she added. “Now, 18 months later, they’re realizing that they got the names of the two agents crossed?…  https://www.independentsentinel.com/fbi-admits-to-altering-flynns-interview-notes-after-all/

A Partisan Abuse of Power

Gary Bauer:  Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz is a self-identified liberal Democrat. He voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016. He defended scumbag/liar-Bill Clinton against impeachment in 1998. And he’s adamantly opposed to what Speaker liar-Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats are doing today in their attempt to impeach President Trump.

In his latest opinion piece, Dershowitz warns that the current impeachment effort is a raw partisan power grab, exactly what our founders like Alexander Hamilton feared most. Consider this excerpt:Hamilton warned of the “greatest danger” that the decision to move forward with impeachment will “be regulated more by the comparative strength of parties than the real demonstrations of innocence or guilt.”Meanwhile, former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy suggests that opponents of impeachment need to move beyond process arguments and start making the case for why Trump’s call with Ukraine’s president is not an impeachable offense. President Trump did nothing wrong.As we have repeatedly noted, there is significant evidence of foreign involvement in the 2016 election, including between elements of our Deep State and the security agencies of other countries. That’s what U.S. Attorney John Durham is investigating.We know that elements of the Ukrainian government played a major role in all of this. We know that former Vice President loose lips liar-Joe Biden was assigned responsibility for managing Ukrainian foreign policy. We know there are issues of corruption involving his son. We know loose lips liar-Biden had his own quid pro quo with Ukraine, demanding the firing of a top prosecutor.The left-wing media desperately doesn’t want any of this to get traction.  ~The Patriot Post
