LAWSUIT! RELEASE ALL JAMES COMEY RECORDS BY DOJ: ALL COMEY’S NOTES ARE U.S. PROPERTY

Posted on

  • All James Comey’s notes are property of the United States government and that he has absconded with them
  • President of Judicial Watch, Tom Fitton: “How is it the FBI allowed Mr. Comey to walk out the door with sensitive documents about President Trump? It is remarkable that we have to sue the FBI in federal court to get these answers about this scandal.”

 

Washington D.C. – Conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch announced Friday that it filed a FOIA lawsuit against the Department of Justice for all non-disclosure agreements pertaining to the handling, storage, protection, dissemination, and/or return of classified information that were signed by or on behalf of former FBI Director James Comey (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of Justice (No. 1:17-cv-01624)).

 

Via Judicial Watch:

The suit was filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia after the Justice Department failed to respond to a June 13, 2017, FOIA request seeking “any and all non-disclosure agreements pertaining in full or in part to the handling, storage, protection, dissemination, and/or return of classified and/or sensitive information that were signed by or on behalf of former FBI Director James Comey.”  Such records would include:

  • All SF-312 (Classified Information Nondisclosure Agreement) forms
  • All FD-857 (Sensitive Information Nondisclosure Agreement) forms
  • All FD-597 (Receipt for Property Received/Returned/Released or Seized) forms
  • All FD-291 (FBI Employment Agreement) forms
  • All Case Briefing Acknowledgement forms

 

Chris Farrell of Judicial Watch argued that Comey’s notes are property of the U.S. government and that his house and office should have been raided after his stunning admission that he leaked contents of his memo to the media:

“This admission today is stunning. I would argue that Mr. Comey’s notes are property of the United States government and that he has absconded with them. Frankly if I were Attorney General, about 20 minutes after his confession today in front of the Senate Intelligence Committee, Deputy U.S. Marshals would have raided his home and office. As well as Mr. Richman at Columbia Law School.

Those records and documents must be recovered. Mr. Comey had no business releasing them. It’s an extraordinary admission on his part. It’s lawless. We wonder why we have leakers in the government when the FBI Director is playing these little games for political points or because his tender ego is bruised. This is outrageous.

He took an oath to the Constitution and he’s betrayed it in no uncertain terms.”

FBI COMEY ASKED DOJ FOR ‘TALKING POINTS’ AFTER BANNING MEDIA TAKING PICTURES OF LYNCH-CLINTON TARMAC MEETING

Posted on

  • When ACLJ asked FBI for Clinton-Lynch plane meeting documents, James Comey, replied that “No records responsive to your request were located.”
  • DOJ documents show several emails from the FBI to DOJ officials concerning the meeting
  • “FBI . . . is looking for guidance” in responding to media inquiries about news reports that the FBI had prevented the press from taking pictures of the Clinton Lynch meeting
  • The DOJ official instructs the FBI to “let me know if you get any questions about this” and provides “[o]ur talkers [DOJ talking points] on this”. The talking points, however are redacted.

 

( ACLJ ) First, the Comey FBI lied to us. Last July, we sent FOIA requests to both the Comey FBI and the Lynch DOJ asking for any documents related to the Clinton Lynch plane meeting. The FBI, under the then directorship of James Comey, replied that “No records responsive to your request were located.”

The documents we received today from the Department of Justice include several emails from the FBI to DOJ officials concerning the meeting.  One with the subject line “FLAG” was correspondence between FBI officials (Richard Quinn, FBI Media/Investigative Publicity, and Michael Kortan) and DOJ officials concerning “flag[ing] a story . . . about a casual, unscheduled meeting between former president Bill Clinton and the AG.” The DOJ official instructs the FBI to “let me know if you get any questions about this” and provides “[o]ur talkers [DOJ talking points] on this”. The talking points, however are redacted.

Another email to the FBI contains the subject line “security details coordinate between Loretta Lynch/Bill Clinton?”

On July 1, 2016 – just days before our FOIA request – a DOJ email chain under the subject line, “FBI just called,” indicates that the “FBI . . . is looking for guidance” in responding to media inquiries about news reports that the FBI had prevented the press from taking pictures of the Clinton Lynch meeting. The discussion then went off email to several phone calls (of which we are not able to obtain records). An hour later, Carolyn Pokomy of the Office of the Attorney General stated, “I will let Rybicki know.” Jim Rybicki was the Chief of Staff and Senior Counselor to FBI Director Jim Comey. The information that was to be provided to Rybicki is redacted.

Also of note several of the documents contain redactions that are requested “per FBI.”

It is clear that there were multiple records within the FBI responsive to our request and that discussions regarding the surreptitious meeting between then AG Lynch and the husband of the subject of an ongoing FBI criminal investigation reached the highest levels of the FBI.

However, on October 21, 2016, the Comey FBI replied to our legal demands that “No records responsive to your request were located.”  This is in direct contravention to the law, and we are preparing further legal action to force the FBI to come clean and turn over ALL documents related to this matter to us in a timely manner.

RUSSIAN LAWYER NO COMMENT ON ‘SPECIAL PERMISSION’ FROM OBAMA DOJ TO STAY IN US WITHOUT VISA

Posted on Updated on

 

WOW! Time for the left to find a new spin on their DNC plant, beloved Russian agent Natalia Veselnitskaya!

When asked by  far-left Daily Beast  how Natalia re-entered US after her special permission from AG Loretta Lynch expired in January 2016 and how she was able to mingle with Washington D.C. crowd like a pro and meet with Donald Trump Jr., she has no answer. Even the crickets won’t answer. According to Daily Beast:

Veselnitskaya also did not respond to requests for comment.

 

Russian babe lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya is suppose to be the latest bombshell on Trump-Russia saga. She now looks like a villain character from a James Bond movie – like a Russian spy chosen by the Obama administration to create their  fake Trump-Russia collusion hysteria.

In the new twist to the story, we can see the dirty hands of Obama administration all over the story:

 

  • In late 2015, she was granted special permission by then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch to enter the United States even though she didn’t have a visa.
  • ‘In October [2015] the government bypassed the normal visa process and gave a type of extraordinary permission to enter the country called immigration parole,’ Assistant US Attorney Paul Monteleoni told a federal judge during a court hearing on January 6, 2016. ‘That’s a discretionary act that the statute allows the Attorney General to do in extraordinary circumstances. 

  • In January 2016, her visa expired. 
  •  The State Department would not confirm or deny whether Veselnitskaya applied again for a visa in 2016, let alone if a visa was granted
  • In June 2016, she met at Trump Tower with Donald Trump Jr, campaign chair Paul Manafort, and Jared Kushner
  • Veselnitskaya also did not respond to requests for comment.

 

 

From  far-left Daily Beast :

 The State Department would not confirm or deny whether Veselnitskaya applied again for a visa in 2016, let alone if a visa was granted

A spokesperson told The Daily Beast the State Department could not comment due to privacy considerations.

Veselnitskaya also did not respond to requests for comment.

NO VISA! OBAMA DOJ GAVE RUSSIAN LAWYER NATALIA VESELNITSKAYA PERMISSION TO STAY IN U.S. WITHOUT VISA – WHY?

Posted on

 

  • Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya had an expired  visa in early 2016.
  • Obama Justice Department  allowed her to enter US  under “extraordinary circumstances” – like learn to play the Russian agent against Trump Jr. ?
  • Natalia embarked on a lobbying campaign in 2016 that led to meeting with the president’s eldest son, members of Congress, journalists and State Department officials, according to court and Justice Department documents and interviews.
  • The State Department would not confirm or deny whether Veselnitskaya applied again for a visa in 2016, let alone if a visa was granted. A spokesperson told The Daily Beast the State Department could not comment due to privacy considerations. Veselnitskaya also did not respond to requests for comment.

 

The far-left Daily Beast reported:

She (Natalia) then asked federal prosecutors for permission to enter the U.S. to work on behalf of a client in a Manhattan. Prosecutors granted Veselnitskaya temporary “immigration parole” in late 2015 but it expired in early 2016, the U.S. Attorney’s Office of the Southern District of New York told The Daily Beast.

Veselnitskaya’s parole was not renewed, the U.S. Attorney’s Office added.

That raises the question of how Veselnitskaya was able to enter the U.S. in June 2016 when she visited Trump Tower.

The State Department would not confirm or deny whether Veselnitskaya applied again for a visa in 2016, let alone if a visa was granted. A spokesperson told The Daily Beast the State Department could not comment due to privacy considerations. Veselnitskaya also did not respond to requests for comment.

In January 2016, Veselnitskaya filed a declaration to extend her parole past that month. The U.S. Attorney’s Office objected.

 

Report from The Hill:

The Russian lawyer who penetrated Donald Trump’s inner circle was initially cleared into the United States by the Justice Department under “extraordinary circumstances” before she embarked on a lobbying campaign last year that ensnared the president’s eldest son, members of Congress, journalists and State Department officials, according to court and Justice Department documents and interviews.

This revelation means it was the Obama Justice Department that enabled the newest and most intriguing figure in the Russia-Trump investigation to enter the country without a visa. Later, a series of events between an intermediary for the attorney and the Trump campaign ultimately led to the controversy surrounding the president’s eldest son.

 

BUSTED! LEAKER REALITY L. WINNER ARRESTED FOR MAILING CLASSIFIED INFO TO NEWS OUTLET ‘THE INTERCEPT’

Posted on Updated on

BUSTED! 25-year-old Democrat Reality Leigh Winner, a federal contractor, was arrested over the weekend and is facing charges that she removed classified material from a government facility and mailed it to a news outlet.

Via Washington Examiner:

A 25-year-old federal contractor is facing charges she leaked a classified National Security Agency document to a news outlet in May. The charges come about an hour after the publication of a story based on an NSA document detailing Russian attempts to hack American voting systems.

Reality Leigh Winner, of Augusta, Ga., is facing charges that she removed classified material from a government facility and mailed it to a news outlet. She was arrested on Saturday and appeared on the charge Monday.

The announcement comes shortly after The Intercept published a report based on a classified intelligence document showing Russian government hackers attempted to hack more than 100 local election officials before the November election.

According to the report, Russian military intelligence sent the emails to local elections officials. They also attempted a cyber attack on at least one American voting software supplier.

The Justice Department didn’t confirm that Winner leaked the document to The Intercept, but the report stated the report received by the news outlet was dated May 5. According to the Justice Department release, Winner printed and removed the classified document on May 9.

Winner worked for Pluribus International Corporation and was assigned to a government facility in Georgia. She’s held a Top Secret classified security clearance since being hired on Feb. 13.

She is accused of sending the classified document to a news outlet a few days after printing it off.

“Once investigative efforts identified Winner as a suspect, the FBI obtained and executed a search warrant at her residence. According to the complaint, Winner agreed to talk with agents during the execution of the warrant,” the statement read.

“During that conversation, Winner admitted intentionally identifying and printing the classified intelligence reporting at issue despite not having a ‘need to know,’ and with knowledge that the intelligence reporting was classified.”

 

 

 

 

WOW! EX-SECRET SERVICE: TRUMP MAY FOUND OUT DOJ AND NOT FBI ORDERED THE WIRETAPPING -AN OBAMA AND LYNCH COLLABORATION!

Posted on

 

  • Secret Service discovered something while performing one of their ECM sweeps of Trump Tower and later found out it was the DOJ that had ordered the surveillance.

 

( WND )  Dan Bongino, a former Secret Service agent, says there’s a third possibility no one is considering.

He shared his thoughts in a video posted to his Facebook page over the weekend.

“The Secret Service does ECM sweeps, electronic counter-measures, where they go in frequently and look for listening devices, radio frequencies, all kinds of things to make sure the president or president-elect is not being, in fact, wiretapped or listened in on on specific phone lines,” Bongino revealed.

Bongino, who wrote about his time in the Secret Service in his book “Life Inside the Bubble: Why a Top-Ranked Secret Service Agent Walked Away From It All,” said if Trump were being wiretapped or surveilled, it’s highly unlikely that he walked into the FBI and demanded to know.

The former agent, noting Trump had Secret Service protection as a candidate, thinks it’s much more likely the Secret Service discovered something while performing one of their ECM sweeps of Trump Tower and later found out it was the DOJ that had ordered the surveillance.

“That makes total sense, but of course the media’s not really interested in the story, because they want to find fault with Trump. So their story’s gonna be, ‘Did Trump force the FBI to tell him he was being monitored in some kind of an investigation?’” Bongino said.
