“‘Where’s my apology, Jim?’ Trump taunts Comey after former FBI chief says sorry for ‘sloppy’ Russia investigation”
“President Donald Trump took to Twitter to demand a personal apology from former FBI Director James Comey, after Comey apologized on TV for his (mis)handling of the ‘Russiagate’ probe.
“So now Comey’s admitting he was wrong,” Trump tweeted on Sunday. “Wow, but he’s only doing so because he got caught red handed. He was actually caught a long time ago. So what are the consequences for his unlawful conduct. Could it be years in jail? Where are the apologies to me and others, Jim?”…
By “caught red handed,” Trump was likely referring to the publication of a report by the Justice Department’s Inspector General on Monday. The report found 17 irregularities, inaccuracies and omissions in the FBI’s FISA warrant application, used to obtain permission to surveil former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page…”
“…Horowitz report prove the FBI is run by treasonous crooks…”
“For the past three years, we’ve been reporting the undeniable truth of how the FBI is America’s No. 1 most prolific terrorist organization, planning and running terror plots against the American people as a way to justify its own existence in the so-called “war on terror.” Now it turns out the deep state is the origin of all that terrorism, and the FBI has been carrying out assassinations (JFK), cover-ups (Sen. RFK), death threats (Dr. MLK) and political coup attempts against America…
As Van Buren writes:
[The FBI] unleashed a full-spectrum spying campaign against a presidential candidate in order to influence an election, and when that failed, they tried to delegitimize a president…
Yes, the media is complicit in treason. It’s a triangle of criminality and treason: The deep state, the Democrats and the establishment media… Glenn Greenwald of The Intercept — no fan of Trump, by the way — writes that the malfeasance of the FBI “reveals a scandal of historic magnitude.”…”
“IG report shows Obama knew about spying on Trump”
“But buried in the 446-page report released Monday is the revelation that FBI Director James Comey briefed Obama and other senior officials at a White House Situation Room, points out former counterintelligence agent and now lead Judicial Watch investigator Chris Farrell in a Daily Caller column…”
“The Inspector General’s Report on 2016 FBI Spying Reveals a Scandal of Historic Magnitude: Not Only for the FBI but Also the U.S. Media”
“JUST AS WAS TRUE when the Mueller investigation closed without a single American being charged with criminally conspiring with Russia over the 2016 election, Wednesday’s issuance of the long-waited report from the Department of Justice’s Inspector General reveals that years of major claims and narratives from the U.S. media were utter frauds…”
“…OIG initiating FBI audit over FISA abuses targeting U.S. citizens”
“Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz finally released his long-awaited report on the FBI’s alleged abuse of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act Court to obtain a warrant to spy on a member of then-candidate Donald Trump’s campaign named Carter Page.
In short, the inspector general found plenty of abuse — due not to political bias, but rather to a plethora of errors and omissions that misled the FISA Court in order to obtain the warrant…”
“IG report indicates James Comey lied about Steele dossier”
“The newly released inspector general report found that former FBI Director James Comey was briefed on concerns that the document presented as primary evidence to obtain warrants to surveil the Trump campaign was funded by the Democratic Party, contrary to Comey’s claim in a Fox News interview…
The IG report also refutes Comey’s claim that the dossier was not presented as primary evidence to the FISA court to obtain warrants to surveil Trump campaign volunteer Carter Page…”
TL:DR version: HE LIED!
“IG report confirms Schiff lied, Nunes vindicated”
“Since the release of his April 2018 memo alleging serious abuse by the Obama FBI in obtaining warrants to surveil the Trump campaign, Republican Rep. Devin Nunes has been vilified by media who seized on Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff’s counter memo.
But the report by Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz affirms Nunes’ contention that the salacious and unverified Steele dossier was essential to securing the warrants. And it verified many other assertions by Nunes and his staff, including that the FBI did not reveal to the FISA court that the dossier was funded by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee…
Further, the IG report released Monday, notes the Federalist’s Mollie Hemingway, shows seven major points in Schiff’s memo to be false…”
“10 times FBI officials conveniently could ‘not remember’ key Trump-Russia details”
“As part of an investigation by the Department of Justice (DOJ) inspector general (IG) into how the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) abused protocols for obtaining warrants against a Trump campaign aide, the IG conducted more than 170 interviews involving more than 100 witnesses. Yet when asked direct questions about their behavior throughout 2016 and 2017, many key witnesses said they could not remember.
The IG report includes the phrase “not remember” 25 times and the phrase “not recall” 240 times. Here are just 10 details in the report that they claimed slipped from witnesses’ minds when asked by investigators…”

“FBI surveillance ‘an embarrassment to our country’, Trump says, after Justice Department report released”
“President Donald Trump has slated the FBI’s surveillance operation against him, calling it a “disgrace” and “an embarrassment to our country,” after a Justice Department report found “mistakes” in the agency’s conduct.
“This was an attempted overthrow and a lot of people were in on it, and they got caught,” Trump told reporters at the White House on Monday, hours after the Justice Department’s Inspector General released a report on the origins of the FBI’s 2016 counterintelligence probe against the Trump campaign.
“It’s a disgrace…it’s incredible, far worse than I would have ever thought possible. It’s an embarrassment to our country,” he continued, “it’s dishonest. It’s everything a lot of people thought it would be, except far worse.” …”

“Secret FISA court issues highly unusual public rebuke of FBI for mistakes”
“The secret federal court that approves orders for conducting surveillance on suspected foreign terrorists or spies issued a strong and highly unusual public rebuke to the FBI on Tuesday, ordering the agency to say how it intends to correct the errors revealed last week by a Justice Department report on one aspect of the FBI’s investigation of Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign…”
“Federal surveillance judge orders FBI to answer for ‘misleading’ courts & omitting key evidence in effort to spy on Trump campaign”
“The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court has issued a rare and scathing rebuke to the FBI, accusing the bureau of manipulating the court with lies and omissions in its quest to surveil a member of the 2016 Trump campaign.
The searing four-page order, authored by presiding FISA Judge Rosemary Collyer and released on Tuesday, castigates the FBI for providing “false information” – also known as ‘lying’ – to the Department of Justice’s National Security Division (NSD) and withholding important evidence in requesting surveillance authorities over Trump campaign aide Carter Page.
Citing a long-awaited inspector general report released last week – which uncovered a series of “errors,” misstatements and inaccuracies in the FBI’s FISA applications for Page – Collyer said the findings cast doubt on the bureau’s credibility, and whether it also lied in previous FISA applications…”

“Not a single official involved in “Spygate” has yet to be indicted, much less convicted and sent to prison”
“There has been enough reporting from legitimate media, including us, to substantiate the allegation. There has been plenty of evidence of said coup attempt uncovered by Republicans in Congress to corroborate the claim…
Yes, some people have been fired. Comey, McCabe, and Strzok have all lost their jobs. Ohr, the Justice Department’s former No. 4 official, has been demoted. Page was allowed to resign, and Baker is no longer employed as a top FBI lawyer.
But losing a job is one thing. These people deserve to lose their freedom. They must, in fact, if we are to preserve our republic for our posterity and hand down to our children a country that still values the rule of law…”
