JOHN McCAIN GAVE FBI JAMES COMEY TRUMP-RUSSIA DOSSIER, MADE AN EXCUSE TO WIRETAP TRUMP BY OBAMA ADMIN
Back in January, John McCain delivered the Trump dossier to FBI James Comey for investigation.
The Daily Mail reported:
Sworn Donald Trump enemy John McCain admitted Wednesday that he passed the dossier of claims of a Russian blackmail plot against the president-elect.
The Arizona senator issued a public statement amid mounting questions of his exact role in the affair – and how a document riddled with errors and unverifiable claims came to be published.
‘Late last year, I received sensitive information that has since been made public,’ he said.
‘Upon examination of the contents, and unable to make a judgment about their accuracy, I delivered the information to the Director of the FBI.
‘That has been the extent of my contact with the FBI or any other government agency regarding this issue.’
Then the former FBI director James Comey used the bogus Trump dossier to convince a judge to grant Obama administration a FISA warrant, allowing them to secretly wiretap Trump campaign official Carter Page
The Hill reported this in April.
FBI Director James Comey has cited the dossier in some of his briefings with lawmakers in recent weeks as one of the information sources used by his bureau to bolster its probe, U.S. officials briefed on the investigation told CNN… The secret court that oversees the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) granted the FBI a warrant to monitor the communications of Page, a former national security adviser on Trump’s campaign.
- It is necessary to “better understand the reasoning behind how certain conclusions were drawn
Rep. Bob Goodlatte of Virginia, chairman of the Judiciary Committee, and Rep. Trey Gowdy of South Carolina, chairman of the Oversight Committee, announced they will launch a probe into the Justice Department’s handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation.
They described it as necessary to “better understand the reasoning behind how certain conclusions were drawn.”
Other questions the Republican lawmakers said they want addressed revolve around the decision not to file criminal charges against Clinton, FBI’s timeline in respect to charging decisions, etc.
The House Judiciary tweeted the following announcement:
“Our justice system is represented by a blind-folded woman holding a set of scales. Those scales do not tip to the right or the left; they do not recognize wealth, power, or social status. The impartiality of our justice system is the bedrock of our republic and our fellow citizens must have confidence in its objectivity, independence, and evenhandedness. The law is the most equalizing force in this country. No entity or individual is exempt from oversight.
“Decisions made by the Department of Justice in 2016 have led to a host of outstanding questions that must be answered. These include, but are not limited to:
- FBI’s decision to publicly announce the investigation into Secretary Clinton’s handling of classified information but not to publicly announce the investigation into campaign associates of then-candidate Donald Trump;
- FBI’s decision to notify Congress by formal letter of the status of the investigation both in October and November of 2016;
- FBI’s decision to appropriate full decision making in respect to charging or not charging Secretary Clinton to the FBI rather than the DOJ;
- FBI’s timeline in respect to charging decisions.
‘The Committees will review these decisions and others to better understand the reasoning behind how certain conclusions were drawn. Congress has a constitutional duty to preserve the integrity of our justice system by ensuring transparency and accountability of actions taken.”
DIRTY COPS! ROBERT MUELLER AND JAMES COMEY CONVICT PEOPLE FOR SPORT, MUELLER USED FAKE CHARGES TO ENTRAP LAWYER
- Dirty cops Robert Mueller and James Comey convict people for sport
- Mueller once tried to entrap a Boston lawyer with fake charges
- Mueller: “You know, all of this is actually false, but your client is an old friend of mine and I want to help him.”
Boston-based lawyer Harvey Silvergate penned an article for WGBH recounting how current Special Counsel Robert Mueller, then acting as United States Attorney in Boston, attempted to entrap him.
When Mueller was the acting United States Attorney in Boston, I was defense counsel in a federal criminal case in which a rather odd fellow contacted me to tell me that he had information that could assist my client. He asked to see me, and I agreed to meet. He walked into my office wearing a striking, flowing white gauze-like shirt and sat down across from me at the conference table. He was prepared, he said, to give me an affidavit to the effect that certain real estate owned by my client was purchased with lawful currency rather than, as Mueller’s office was claiming, the proceeds of illegal drug activities.
My secretary typed up the affidavit that the witness was going to sign. Just as he picked up the pen, he looked at me and said something like: “You know, all of this is actually false, but your client is an old friend of mine and I want to help him.” As I threw the putative witness out of my office, I noticed, under the flowing white shirt, a lump on his back – he was obviously wired and recording every word between us.
Dirty Cops Bharara, Comey, and Mueller convict people for sport
Another story by former Assistant U.S. Attorney Sidney Powell believes Robert Mueller is guilty of prosecutorial improprieties.
While discussing former U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York Preet Bharara’s motive behind prosecuting millionaire Las Vegas gambler Billy Walters, Powell says he, akin Mueller, convict people for sport.
Powell told reporter Jerome Corsi:
“Because Billy Walters was a famous and hugely successful sports gambler,” Powell answered. “Because he was a multi-million-dollar investor who owned a $17 million-dollar private jet. Because Preet Bharara had suffered a series of appeals court set-backs and he valued bagging Billy Walters so he could have a new trophy to put on his wall.”
[…]“Many top federal law enforcement officials including James Comey – and it appears Robert Mueller as well – are willing to engage in illegal acts to win convictions,” she stressed. “They convince themselves or believe that someone is guilty of something, and then the end of obtaining any kind of conviction justifies whatever needs to be done to get that conviction.”She continued: “Bharara, Comey, and Mueller – all three are far too political and have great powers of rationalization. Some have called them ‘Dirty Cops.’”

New Evidence Shows McCain Helped Fund FBI Plot to Frame Trump; Backed Bogus Russian Trump Dossier
( True Pundit ) New evidence from court documents and intelligence sources combine to show the unthinkable: U.S. Senator John McCain colluded with the FBI and possibly the DNC to sandbag President Donald Trump, before and after the 2016 election.
And McCain is from the same political party as President Trump. Allegedly.
True Pundit broke a story weeks ago that ex-FBI chief James Comey’s FBI funded the bogus Trump dossier to the tune of $100K+ with the help of McCain who brokered the deal. The revelations the FBI paid for the dossier were also confirmed by Judicial Watch.
But now court documents and new source Intel raise suspicions that McCain may have chipped in financially with the FBI or privately funded the counterfeit research, either himself or through his shady foundation.
Regardless, the research firm of former spooks — Fusion GPS who commissioned the problematic report — could have been paid for the same report by the multiple entities:
- The FBI, through a black-budget fund as reported by True Pundit
- John McCain campaign coffers and connections
- McCain’s foundation: Arizona State University’s McCain Institute for International Leadership
- Hillary Clinton-backed campaign operatives who paid $1 million for the research
BLACK LIVES MATTER DERAIL JAMES COMEY HOWARD UNIVERSITY SPEECH: ‘GET OUT JAMES COMEY! YOU AIN’T MY HOMIE’
Black Lives Matter protesters during James Comey’s speech at Howard University:
- Get out James Comey! You ain’t my homie!”
- “Black lives they matter here!”
- “F— James Comey”
- “No justice, no peace!”
- Protesters sang, “We Shall Not Be Moved”
From Fox News:
Noisy protesters shouted and chanted over James Comey on Friday as he attempted to deliver a convocation address at Howard University, forcing him to delay his remarks and then practically drowning out the rest of his speech.The protest started as soon as the former FBI director took the podium at the historically black college in Washington, D.C.
Protesters raised their right fists in the air and chanted, “We shall not be moved.” They also said, “F— James Comey” and “No justice, no peace.”
Comey was unable to speak at first due to the disruption. After several minutes, Comey tried to begin. “I hope you’ll stay and listen to what I have to say. … I listened to you for five minutes,” he said, before pausing again.
After several more minutes of protests, Comey launched into his prepared speech – which, ironically, was about how the rest of the world is often “too noisy” to take time to reflect, whereas Howard University represents an “island.”
Comey had to raise his voice throughout the address as the chanting persisted. The protesters later said they were with the group HU Resist and were protesting “state-sanctioned violence.”
The rowdy scene marked a rough start for Comey at Howard, where he’s joined the faculty as a lecturer.
( Fox News ) The Department of Justice should consider prosecuting James Comey for his “improper” actions while serving as FBI director, the White House said Tuesday.
Sarah Sanders, the White House press secretary, argued during the daily press briefing that Comey’s actions as FBI director “were improper and likely could have been illegal.”
Asked if President Trump wants the Department of Justice to prosecute Comey, Sanders said that’s “something they should certainly look at.”
Sanders said the former FBI director “politicized an investigation by signaling he would exonerate Hillary Clinton before he ever interviewed her or other key witnesses.”
That’s in reference to new allegations Comey drafted an “exoneration statement” for Clinton weeks before interviewing her during the investigation into her email server.
Sanders also said Comey, “by his own admission, leaked privileged government information.”
That’s in apparent reference to Comey’s acknowledgement during a June congressional hearing that he authorized the leaking of a memo about his conversations with the president to the New York Times.
“I think if there’s ever a moment where we feel someone’s broken the law, particularly if they’re the head of the FBI, then I think that’s something [that] certainly should be looked at,” she said.
Her comments were in response to former chief strategist Steve Bannon, who told CBS News’ “60 Minutes” that Trump’s decision to fire Comey was perhaps the worst mistake in “modern political history” because it paved the way for the special counsel’s Russia investigation.
CHRISTOPHER STEELE TRUMP DOSSIER USED UNVERIFIED SOURCES, SENT TO JOHN MCCAIN, USED BY COMEY TO OBTAIN FISA

- The dossier was part of the evidence the FBI used to obtain a FISA warrant
- Mr. Steele says the ultimate responsibility lies with BuzzFeed, the liberal news website whose editor, Ben Smith, decided to post the entire 35 pages — memos from June to December — on Jan. 10 even though Mr. Smith said he doubted the far-flung accusations were true.
- Mr. Steele and his Orbis Business Intelligence firm are facing defamation lawsuit brought by Aleksej Gubarev, chief executive of the network solutions firm XBT Holdings,
British spy behind Trump dossier ordered to give deposition in BuzzFeed suit
Christopher Steele reportedly met with the FBI on Aug. 22. The dossier was part of the evidence the FBI used to obtain a FISA warrant to monitor communications of Carter Page, a peripheral adviser in the Trump campaign.
Former FBI Director James Comey considered the dossier so important that he insisted it be included in January’s final Intelligence Community Report on Russian meddling in the election and reportedly offered Steele $50,000 to corroborate the dossier—something the bureau denies paying.
…”We know from what Steele has said in the British lawsuit that – at Fusion’s instruction – he briefed reporters at The New York Times, the Washington Post, Yahoo News, the New Yorker, CNN and Mother Jones about the dossier,” Fray-Witzer said. “To their credit, not a one of them actually published the dossier. Only BuzzFeed did that and we think that says something about where BuzzFeed’s priorities were. This was about “clicks,” not about responsible reporting.”
Ex-spy admits anti-Trump dossier unverified, blames Buzzfeed for publishing
By Rowan Scarborough – The Washington Times
Tuesday, April 25, 2017
Christopher Steele, the former British spy who wrote the infamous anti-Donald Trump dossier, acknowledges that a sensational charge his sources made about a tech company CEO and Democratic Party hacking is unverified.
In a court filing, Mr. Steele also says his accusations against the president and his aides about a supposed Russian hacking conspiracy were never supposed to be made public, much less posted in full on a website for the world to see on Jan. 10.
He defends himself by saying he was betrayed by his client and that he followed proper internal channels by giving the dossier to Sen. John McCain, Arizona Republican, to alert the U.S. government.
Mr. Steele has not spoken publicly about his disputed opposition research project, but for the first time he is being forced to talk in a London court through his attorneys.
Barristers for Mr. Steele and his Orbis Business Intelligence firm filed their first defense against a defamation lawsuit brought by Aleksej Gubarev, chief executive of the network solutions firm XBT Holdings.
Mr. Steele acknowledges that the part of the 35-page dossier that identified Mr. Gubarev as a rogue hacker came from “unsolicited intelligence” and “raw intelligence” that “needed to be analyzed and further investigated/verified.”
