You'll have of history so talk to us about what happened in two thousand sixteen according to the baron and what is the impact. How much because.

Trump Didn't Know He Was in a War With the Deep State in 2016
"Do you think trump has finally woken up to the idea that he kind of squandered opportunities that he was like me and like many persuaded that He might be able to get some things done not aware that he was in fact in an all out war. Yeah i would. I would cut trump's some some real slack for not realizing that the left was not going to permit the legitimate transition of power in two thousand sixteen and they never did. The left rejected the the results of the two thousand sixteen election and use every method fair and foul terrorist methods. Creating a fake dossier that links an american citizen like donald trump that links into the farm power and suggests that he's committing treason making up the lab dossiers putting him in hotel rooms. Doing disgusting acts with prostitutes taking bribes from foreign governments making all of that up and then the fbi knowing it is a pack of lies and using its power destroying people's lives going to go after. Mike flynn george popadopoulos. Pablo carter page destroying people's lives in service. What they knew was ally. This is how the east german stasio operated. So i don't know. Donald trump did not realize that the deep state were anti-american evil terrorist force. That must be rooted out of america and the hundreds of these people deserve to spend the rest allies in federal prison. That's how bad the fbi is. The fbi should be abolished at every executive members should be investigated with an inch of their lives to find out how for instance so many of them could go public and say the hunter biden. Laptop was russian disinformation. They said all that just before the election they said the case against donald trump was solid. They lied to us. They used our own government against us just as surely as your andropov used his government against the russian people in the nineteen eighty s. We are dealing with a domestic dictatorship. That is using facebook and twitter to get around the first amendment censor free speech. You can't even ask questions about the legitimacy in the last election. Or whether it's a good idea to take maxine. No you're going to be silenced. And the federal government is going to coordinate with these allegedly private companies in order to silence your free speech. Are you alarm yet. Are you angry
Journalist Lee Smith Talks About Tucker Carlson Being Spied on by the NSA
"You have a peace out. I'm going to get to in a minute in the epic times. That is just deeply troubling and everyone should read. Folks Look at this. It's called affidavits raised more questions about the FBI about FBI's role in Trump probe. I just hit the forward, Button said. It is a terrific piece. I want to get to that in a minute. But I'd be there would be a sin if I didn't ask you first. About this Tucker Carlson case your thoughts on these allegations that the NSA has a hold of his texts or emails how this could possibly happen. Yeah, I'm actually writing about this today. So I'm glad you asked me. I look. I mean, one of the important things is all of these people who were spying on the Trump team, the Trump campaign and the Trump transition team right from the Obama White House. Many of them are back in the Biden administration, and that goes to the president himself. Remember that list of DNA released About how even Joe Biden had unmasked General Michael Flynn's name from transcript the foreign foreign intelligence intercept, So I think that we can put a lot of things together. From what you know people like you and and and me and your great listeners have been putting together for the last several years. What? What It looks like to me and actually Harmeet Dhillon, who was on Ben, who's on Tucker. Last night. She made a good point. She said something like I think this is about Um, I think this is about indirect collection and, of course, or incidental collection. What it looks like is reverse targeting. They wanted to go after Tucker and they found someone that they could legitimately, uh, quasi legitimately target. That's how they collected on Tucker. That's that's Lee. Sounds familiar, right? Sounds familiar, right? These sounds like what they did to Mike Flynn.

"Dan Bongino. Let's go to Target number two. Lieutenant General Michael Flynn. What did Lieutenant General Michael Flynn have that made him a target of the deep state swamp in the intelligence community that just like Giuliani they needed of the investigate. Flynn. Don't worry, we'll find the crime later. Flynn committed crime. No, no, no, Don't worry. Just investigating. We'll find one just like we're doing with Julian. So what did he have? Here. Listen, I'm not showing you my book. It's been out a while, but it is my this is my book. Follow the money. You've seen it wrote it. I don't know. It's about 89 months old now, but thanks to those who picked it up, But Page 95 from my book is a whole chapter on how they did this to Mike Flynn. What did Mike Flynn have that the icy needed to take him out for? He had operational knowledge of how the intelligence community keeps blowing it. Age 95 of the book. Tough talking. Stanley McChrystal asked Mike Flynn to write up an assessment of U. S involvement in the country where U. S forces have been hunkered down for eight years, Flynn embraced his Afghanistan Intel evaluations with gusto. So Stanley McChrystal tasks Mike Flynn to go evaluate our intelligence community in Afghanistan. From the book The results caused in the words of columnist Max Boot. Quote. A minor earthquake in the Pentagon always did. But that's an understatement. Flynn's analysis also sent reverberations to the CIA headquarters in Langley, Virginia. Flynn saw the wizard. Curtain was pulled back. Flynn was asked to evaluate the Intel community and the report he gave back to Langley and the Pentagon was we're blowing it. Our Intel community is not getting it done, and the Intel community really didn't like that. Really didn't like that. Flynn had operational knowledge. Flynn then became a Trump representative on the campaign trail. Flynn then became the appointed national security adviser for Donald Trump. We can't have a guy with that kind of juice inside the White House. He's got to go. So let's investigate Flynn and find the crime. Did Flynn commit a crime? Don't worry, we'll make one up. Why else would they terrified about Mike Flynn? What else did he have? Well through his operational knowledge, Mike Flynn was able to see in advance some of the hits coming on Donald Trump. You don't believe me. Here's the Horowitz report on the spy gate saga. The inspector general who looked in all the tactics they used to spy on Trump. Flynn knew what was going on early here It is right here. Quote Harwood support, according to an email, Jim Comey said to FBI officials on January 7 2017 Comey mentioned during a briefing a piece of the steel report. You know the Peopie stuff. A steel reporting that indicated Russia had files on both Clinton and the president elect that be Donald Trump. So just to be clear Comey's briefing them on on January 7th about this steel stuff, and then the Russians, right? Comey's email stated that during this briefing Listen to this. Member of Trump's National security team. Asked during the briefing whether the FBI was trying to dig into the sub sources to gain a better understanding of the situation. Comey responded in the affirmative. Let me translate that for you folks. Jim Comey and the FBI portions of the intelligence Committee of the upper level. They're trying to set up Donald Trump with the Peopie tape stuff. Flynn goes, smells a rat because he has operational knowledge of how the icy has been politicized The intelligence community that's dangerous. The intelligence committee can't have that and starts asking, Comey quote. Are you trying to dig into the sub sources? In other words, Comey knows Flynn knows. And Flynn knows, Comey knows Flynn knows. Flynn looks a kami, right, waking or not, like You're telling me that you have derogatory information on Trump from Russia? Where'd you get that from? Comey paddocks. Ah, the Peopie tape guy, huh? He panicked. They knew Flynn had their number. They needed him out because they planned on setting up Trump. You don't believe me. Look, here's a legal filing from the Flynn. Team member Peter Stroke who investigated this Peter Stroke took notes, Strokes notes believed to be of January for 2017 just a few days before that briefing, by the way, Revealed that President Obama, Comey, Sally Yates, Biden and Susan Rice discussed the transcripts of Flynn's calls with the Russians and how to proceed against him. Obama himself directed that quote. The right people investigate Flynn. This caused Comey to acknowledge the obvious. General Flynn's phone calls with Ambassador Kislyak quote appeared that shit And according to stroke, so notes It appears and Vice President Biden personally raised the idea off the Logan Act, which became a pretext to investigate. Flynn. They needed this guy out. Comey tells him Hey, Flynn's calls with the Russians were legit. His words in the FBI's own knows they appear legit. Biden and Obama say get the right people and investigate him anyway. Find the person dig up the crime later. Here's the best part. How do you impeach Flynn's credibility the same way you impeach Giuliani's credibility? Just say he's definitely a surrogate, a mule. Mark for the Russians, You know? Believe me, they're CNN. Gloria Borger, who still thinks Biden invented the vaccine. Quote. First on CNN, Russian officials bragged they could use Mike Flynn did fluids, Trump sources say, Escort's. He's the same Intel Community sources that said the Peopie tape was real. The dossier was real that Trump colluded with the Russians that Giuliani's the Russian mark those the same sources. Of course, suckers at CNN like Gloria Borger, Jim Pseudo, Marshal Cohen and Pamela Brown. Suck it right up. Same tactic, folks every single time. You got something? The IC community doesn't like you tell this community Just say there were Russian stooge and idiots in the medial. Suck it right up the damn Bongino show. Whether she.

"And i'm reading your comments like it's like they. Can we screw up the country today. We haven't done it all. What's what else can we grew up. What else can we break. What else can we look at on the constitution and figure out how to violate. It's like it's almost like it's a contest. The biden administration to figure out how fast they can turn us into china. It's just it's so sad. I'll tell ya see. Hunter wrote a book he gets saw this. We talked about a little bit. The hunter wrote a book. And i don't think hunter wrote it. I think somebody wrote it hundred names on it. I'm not sure hunter can spell. Although joe said he's the smartest man he knows well over in britain they have this Some guys probably. They're watching their have. This newspaper called the daily mail in the daily mail The headline on the daily mail says what hunter biden left out of his quote. Tell all memoir. Okay and the i gotta tell you the the pictures that they published all my gosh. I didn't know you could put this like in a newspaper. Wow and i don't want to describe them wow Yuck and it. Can i mean oh my gosh so Daily mail it says can reveal the secrets hundred chose not to divulge exposed in the contents of his abandoned laptop and verified by top forensics experts. So the daily mail had the Had the laptop version. They had forensics people figure out that yes in fact it was hunters laptop and the emails on it really were his. And he really was communicating with them. And these really are photos of him and they're not doctored and it really is true so here is what hunter left out of his book. Ready i i. There's hundred three thousand text messages. Hundred fifty four thousand emails and two thousand photos and dozens of videos jay. And here's some of what all that includes. It appears you guys remember. When do you remember. When hillary was running. You remember four years ago and the big question was is. Joe gonna run right. He was obama's veep and his joe gonna run and the answer was no does not gonna run a had just died. Beau biden just passed away and joe said no. I'm not gonna run. And hillary is gonna run and the the basically said. I don't want to run. I don't want to be president and this time. If you remember he kind of had this well you know if you guys draft me right. Well it turns out. Hunter begged his father to run for president in two thousand and nineteen and he begged him saying. Let me just find it. So i'm not paraphrasing and find exact quote here He's hundred biden said. If you don't run. I'll never have a chance at redemption. If you don't ronald ever have a chance at redemption hundred biden knew. The only way that he wasn't going to go to prison is if his dad was in charge of the department of justice. That's my belief on this okay. So hunter left. He left out the fact that he asked his dad run. He details in here how. He repeatedly dodged police chasing him with drug pushers and prostitutes and had multiple run ins with police and managed to get out of it He says he was guarded by a secret service agent on two thousand eighteen drug and prostitute binge in hollywood despite not being entitled to protection time and amid denials from the federal agency. So apparently they were out there protecting them even when he shouldn't have and Says joe biden was afraid of text conversation with hunter being hack even as they discussed his white house bid so Our good president. Joe biden has started on his gun. Control issuance and You know his executive orders and we'll see if the supreme court stands up to him or not but the reality is we need to protect our right to self defense and no one more eloquent on the topic then the gipper. You pointed out. The police would be so busy arresting handgun owners that they would be unable to protect the people against criminals. It's a nasty truth. But those who seek to inflict harm are not fazed by gun control laws. I happen to know this from personal experience. Man i've always felt a special bond with the members of your group. You live by lincoln's where it's important principles may and must be inflexible. You're philosophy put his trust in people so you insist on individuals be held responsible for their actions. The nra believes that america's laws were made to be obeyed and our constitutional liberties are just as important today as two hundred years ago and by the way the constitution does not say that government show decree the right to keep and bear arms. The constitution says the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed..
Michael Flynn's brother was present on a call discussing the military response to the Capitol siege in Washington, DC
"The washington post reporting tonight on the attack in the capital two weeks ago. Of course we have seen new arrests and increasingly serious. Felony charges brought against individuals every day since the siege two weeks ago including recent charges against people accused of playing and an organizing role or even a command and control role in the attack on the capital and on congress but for the first time tonight the washington post has an unsettling report about happened inside the pentagon when besieged lawmakers and police on capitol hill called the military and begged them to urgently send in the national guard. The initial response from the army to that call for help no. They wouldn't do it even though they were informed on that call that the capital had been breached that the protesters were not peaceful. They were told on that coal. That shots had already been fired. There were reports of shots fired already but still the army on that call told capital. Police they would not send in the national guard that remains one of the disturbing failures about how the capital fell. That day to the pro-trump mob while now tonight the washington post is reporting that one of the senior officers who was in the room when that call for help was made to the pentagon and when the army response was no. You can't have the help. One of the senior officers in the room at the pentagon for that call as a general named charles. Flynn flynn charles. Flynn is the brother of disgraced trump national security advisor. Mike flynn who of course called on president trump to use the military and martial law to seize power after the election of course encouraged trump's supporters at the capitol on january sixth who was a central figure in the qn on conspiracy theory that drove so many of the fervent attackers on capital on january on january six. Now what is what makes this even more disturbing is that the army had previously repeatedly denied that. Mike flynn's brother charles was part of that call to the pentagon on january. Six part of that decision to deny national guard support to the capital wallet was being violently attacked. But the army's repeated denials that he had nothing to do with that decision that he wasn't in that meeting that he wasn't on the call. Those relies general. Charles flynn and the army are both now confirming to the washington. Post that in fact he was there when the pentagon field did that call and did not send the guard.
Republican Congressman vs. David C. Smalley
"Let's jump straight in. Because i want to bring our guest in on the conversation immediately. He's a former congressman from virginia's fifth district he's now nc are is chief strategist and author of bigfoot. It's complicated which. I really hope we have time to get into and i really hope. He's still a republican. Let's find out join me in welcoming denver riggleman to the show. Thanks for joining me today. Sir thanks for having me sir. Oh well you heard that with us for the first time it just came out moments ago. What are your thoughts. So i'd like to state as we start here. The president trump reid tweeted a few months ago that the joe biden. Kill seal team six. I think god you're right. No you know. That's and that's what i was when i was listening to that speech after what i heard Down near the white house right before the siege on the capital. In fact that i've been in. Congress have been in the house. And i knew some of those people that spoke like madison call or mo brooks of talked to many times Don jr. meant obviously rudy giuliani I've met obviously and and what i really saw. Their david was absolute Language to incite really. It happened over the months and months and to hear that right now. My my first reaction is not really a politician but as an intelligence officer and something counter-terrorism like somebody's very afraid of the senate trial for impeachment. I thought the same thing Michael came in a few seconds in michael goes. Looks like a hostage video like he looks like he like. It's not really his words. He just feels the need to say these things he had to. I mean you know. The thing is is that his his term does end. I know that there are some people that are still listening to pastures and trucks talking about biblical prophecy that president trump is right now hidden a bunker and mike. Flynn is going to be the next vice president but by the way that's true. I just saw this video two days ago. One hundred eighty five thousand likes david on a facebook video from some dude in a truck saying that you know he's a pastor and had biblical prophecy and he just went through the whole cunanan thing and i just shaking my head about the ridiculousness out there. But he still wants to keep his brand to. He's got to make money. And how's he going to do that. And i think there's a lot of things you need to worry about. And that speech was the copa. That was so too late and show not anything that he said before that very hard to believe men. You're spot on. I mean. I i you know about damn time is the first reaction and then does he even believe the stuff he's saying is the second reaction So late you know so late to the party So that so that my listeners have a little bit background as to why this conversation between the two of us is so important You know you're you're only a former congressman because apparently you weren't conservative enough for your district right you. You lost to someone who was far more conservative and on top of that. I've seen you. I've seen pictures. Anyway of you officiating. Same sex wedding so you don't sound very republican the to us sir. What's going what's going on over there. Why are you so open minded and logical. You know when iran. You know. i've only been. I don't know people know this about me. I was i was a ceo. sell my company in two thousand twelve doing counterterrorism and counterintelligence work. Could you know not. Only that i can. I can go back in time. If i told you the crazy stuff. I've done like we mission plan. The first bombing runs death in afghanistan for nine eleven. that was our squadron. It was me Oman training omanis on. F16 sixteen operations in two thousand and ninety nine. I was on. The romanian serbian border for operation. Allied for trying to stop ethnic cleansing. I've had a hell of a life and that's just the beginning counter idea. Actually our team that was tracking sulejmani and two thousand six two thousand seven so when people saw my resume like this son of a gun never been in politics before when i ran as a republican i was asked to because the my predecessor had to resign because of alcoholism. Which is a little ironic. Since i'm going to stiller. I one on accident one by one. Vote against a christian. Dominion est They called me a baby killing sodomite But i thought if if practicality and i was a good guy team player like in my military days voted independently when i had to I thought i would see that. I care about people more than the career. Because i didn't need the paycheck and sadly after the same sex wedding david conspiracy theory started about me that i was working for soros to turn children into alternative lifestyles by funding schools. To teach that doug gay sex was okay. And that i really started saying cunanan was turning and blossom and this was back in twenty nineteen and since my background is in you tracking isis and al qaeda and disinformation and radicals. I said this also looks like that. We have almost the same type of thing here. We have people that are using language of dehumanisation and antisemitic. Tropes to go after people. And you know it's like a lot my book right. It's about bigfoot belief systems and take over people's lives so really been a hell of a time for me. I never thought that My family we get death threats You know i never you know. I never thought that. I can tell you this. Now that somebody would remove the lug nuts are in them all up on my right front tire at a rally where i came out and felt funny and took it to a shop and look like they tried to hurt me pretty bad so this has been one of my life has been like for the past two years david. And guess what athem you know. This is what they want to bring it. Bring it because i got fifty acres of distillery and i'm a second amendment guy and but i'm also a free thinker and pretty socially libertarian. So i don't know where. I fit bud

"But now in a newly released video, he's telling a different story. Acknowledging defeat. Saying there will be a smooth, orderly and seamless transition. But CBS news correspondent Major Garrett says after all that has happened this week. The president is now gone into isolation. The president when he's been governing, as an activist president had a tendency he did want to talk to people who disagreed with him. Well when you have lots on his plate. Given lots of different conversations. There's nothing on his plate right now, except one thing, his obsession with the election and the sense of grievance that it was stolen from in which it was not so all of the conversations. He has her only with people who tend to reinforce that Falsehood. Rudy Giuliani, former national security adviser, Mike Flynn, his attorney, Sydney Pal Linwood as it was described to me by several sources today, This is the fourth outer ring of the Trump world, and it's the craziest one of all of President Trump had repeatedly vowed he would never concede to Joe Biden, and he still hasn't technically. But he has admitted defeat and the transition of power that is about to happen and his first interview since the storming of the Capitol Senator Ted Cruz. Says the people behind the siege are terrorists and should go away for a long time. But the senator and president, one time presidential hopeful is also slamming Democrats for playing politics during the crisis and attacking conservative leaders.

Trump grants full pardon to Russia probe figure George Papadopoulos
"Granting 15 pardons. This includes full pardons to two men who were convicted in the Mueller investigation. George Papadopoulos and Alex Vander is one tough. A novelist pleaded guilty and 2017 is is lying lying to to FBI FBI agents agents while while vendors vendors want want pleaded pleaded guilty guilty and and 28 28 scenes scenes a a lying lying to to invent invent Stew. Stew. Gators Gators from from the the special special counsel's counsel's office office also also pardoned pardoned former former GOP GOP congressman congressman Duncan Duncan Hunter and Chris Collins, both convicted on corruption related charges. I asked Kyle Cheney, congressional reporter for Politico if President Trump pardoning Papadopoulos and Vandals. Juan is rebuke of the Mueller. Russia investigation question. I mean, we saw him pardon Mike Flynn a couple of weeks ago, which was sort of part of that long running effort. He's also commuted the sentence of Roger Stone, his longtime ally. Both of those men were caught. Up in the Mueller investigation and convicted or pleaded guilty. And in this case, you know Evander's Juan is sort of a bit player. But Papadopoulos is very interesting because he was the whole basis for the origin of the investigation. His interactions with the Russia linked figure led the FBI to probe the Trump campaign first place. So this is really the origin story of the Mueller probe and Trump pardoning him is really a shot at its existence in the first place. Other convictions of Duncan Hunter and Chris Collins essentially centered around corruption that they were convicted on. Why do you think the president chose toe? Pardon these two former congressman? This is pure, rewarding political loyalty here. I mean, Chris Collins was the first member of Congress to endorse President Trump and his 2015 2016 campaign. Hunter with the second, So it's pretty clear political payback here for loyalists and you know, doing in the lame duck when it would have been politically explosive to do it earlier. It's sort of a tried and true thing and other presidencies. But clearly what happened here, Kyle, I know that many of the president's supporters defend these decisions He's making by saying he's used the pardon less often than many other presidents. I guess that is true. But are you expecting Morva? Four? Mr Trump leaves office. I would anticipate it. I think it is fair to say he's used it less often, but he's used it more to three or or he let off the hook. People who are closely allied with him, like very deeply connected with him personally. In terms of politics. And yes, there are others out there that have not been issued People like Paul Manafort, Steve Bannon and others that we had on our watch list for a while now, so I would expect this is not the final round of the That's politico Congressional reporter Kyle Cheney. 10 13.

"48 now earlier today on the gate of Sin, Chad show we had very marks and and Steve, since my sors filling in for the guys. And they discussed former national security adviser Michael Flynn's idea for imposing martial law within the swing states, including Arizona until a new election is held. There's a little bit of that. Pretty soon. We may be under military rule here in Arizona. They made up They may not allow your little sound effects that that just may not be happening up in. Well, this is this is big time. So General Michael Flynn. You know him? He was He was a general. Hey, was an administration the Obama administration? Obama let him go. Okay. It means high up, and then he went that he became a huge trump guy. He was supporting President Trump. Early in the election. Trump loved him. He went around campaigning with Trump all the stuff and President Trump named him his first national security adviser, and Michael Flynn has has the record for the shortest term as national security advisor in the history of the United States. All right, But there was 30 31 days. He did it, and the president had a firearm because he lied. He lied to the vice president, admitted to lying to the FBI and lie to the FBI's admitted that twice under oath that he lied to the FBI. He said he didn't lie to the FBI and now Trump his partner. But here's Michael Flynn has been Back out there and he's talking about the election. He's big on this election fraud stuff, no evidence of it by the way, but he's big on it. And Mike he's got an idea for what President Trump should do. He could order within the swing states if he wanted to. He could take military capabilities and he could place him in those states and basically re run election in each of those states. I mean, it's not impressive that I mean these people. Out there. Talking about martial law is like it's something that we've never done with done. Martial law has been instituted 64 times, So I'm not calling for that We have a constitutional process. We clearly have a constitutional process that has to be followed. I love that he's like, Hey, I have this really stupid idea, but it could totally work And then at the end he's like, but I'm not calling for that. I'm not. I'm not saying we should. Of course not is absolutely ridiculous. So he, but I want to make sure we understand what's going on right now, because I know there's a lot of people out there who are saying Look, there were some irregularities in the election is fraud in this election. Why not investigate it? Why not do these things, But here's what I think we all really need to recognize what he's saying. That President Trump isn't Mike Flynn is saying that the president of United States have said the U. S military into six states including Arizona. We'll have military come in Arizona and have martial law. That means a suspension of our rights, a suspension of our rights. We're going to disregard the election. We just had Throw out all the votes that you and I and everybody else in Arizona just cast and rerun the election. What did we do it not because there's evidence of wrongdoing not because there's anything that happened. You know we wanted because they don't like the outcome. And I won't think about this for just a second. If Obama has said that, that if after if Obama had lost to Mitt Romney in 2012, and then said, Well, we like was going. I'm gonna send the military into Georgia and Iowa and Idaho and wherever he lost thanks rolling down camel back home, I could You imagine the reaction of that We have an armed insurrection, people would be bringing their guns out.

"This'll is a Fox News alert. A pardon for Mike Flynn. ELISA Brady. The president has said for years that Flynn was treated unfairly as part of the Russia probe. He still insists was politically motivated. Now he's taken action. Fox is John Decker is live in Washington President Trump announcing on Twitter. It is my great honor to announce that General Michael T. Flynn has been granted a full pardon. Congratulations to General Flynn and his wonderful family. I know you will now have a truly fantastic Thanksgiving. Flynn, the president's first national security adviser, pleaded guilty and late 2017 to lying to the FBI about meeting with Russia's ambassador to the U. S. But he later disavowed his plea and tried to get the case thrown out in the spring. The Justice Department abandon the case, which, until the presidential pardon was still tied up in legal limbo.

"Impeachment hearings, we did a lot of research to try to figure out what was really going on. Well, one of the guys who was the leading voice and way ahead of anyone else and still is today is John Solomon. He's the author of a new book called Fallout. He is also the CEO and editor in chief of Just the News. If you don't have this page bookmarked, you should just the news is a new news site that John has put together and it's really good. Welcome, Mr Solomon. How are you, sir? Great to be with you, Glen. Thank you so much. Thanks for that introduction. You bet you bet. So I want to talk to you about a couple of things. Ah, First of all, let me just start with that obvious question. How can the FBI do such a great job on the Whitmer plot and yet still be completely seemingly in the dark about antifa on and we haven't had any action on on the Russian collusion story? Yeah. Listen, I think that's why people see it. This duel Justice system we've seen it throughout. You know, Mike Flynn gets charged with lying for lie didn't tell, and Andy McCabe doesn't get charged for a while. He did tell All Throughout the last four years. We've seen the duel system of justice. There's one for every day Americans and it seems conservatives and there's another one for the department of just us. And at the end of the day what you're saying that you're seeing These institutions, the FBI, the CIA, the NSC, they're all protecting themselves. Instead of telling the American people the truth and holding those accountable who carried out you have the greatest dirty political trick in American history. So Donald Trump is surrounded by Uh, people that you know you could call deep staters people that are just covering their own ass and don't want anything to change. I don't know how one man can do this, But is there a chance we clean this up? Because if not, we don't have really a republic. We don't have one. Yeah, this and that is the real question. Right? And I do think that the president remains determined. I think you're going to see the president do something very dramatic in the next couple days, which is no longer wait for the federal agencies to release the documents. He's ordered multiple times since May 19th. I think he's going to release him himself. I have a story up in Justin News right now that has the 40 documents that Trump should still release that would really finish the story complete the picture show who did what? Who should be held accountable. And I bet you the president has the moxie to just go do this, You know longer gonna wait for the agency? But the other thing that has to happen, those who committed crimes have to be prosecuted us. This will become the new norm. I know people are frustrated by German bar, but everything I'm seeing is a very serious real criminal case. I think they're getting very close to making more bigger or dramatic indictments. It may not happen before the election, which is tragic for the American voter, but I do think there's going to be some additional accountability meted out between now and the end of the year. Not knowing what happened before you go into the 2020 election. What happened to 2016 election is a travesty. And it shows that the deep state already won. So can you? Can you tell me do, Trump said Yes, I think was yesterday that they have enough evidence to go all the way to Barack Obama. I believe you do with that. What was a January 5th meeting where it's all hand written notes. I mean, that is that that makes this that makes this way beyond Watergate, the biggest probably Presidential scandal in in American history. Um do we have the evidence to do that? I wrote a count a little bit a little bit ago that identified five instances where Barack Obama's directly involved in the investigation. We just had a new one come out this past week with the declassification where we find out Barack Obama is AH, briefed by John Brennan in July 2016 that Hillary Clinton is running this dirty trick on Russia against Donald Trump. She's going to try to take the fake Portray him as having been involved in the hacking of the DNC documents to get rid of her own political liability. Barack Obama was in the know from beginning to end. Whether that being in the know and encouraging it and cheer leading it on is enough to be a crime. It depends what actions were taken, but make no mistake he was read in. He was cheerleading, particularly when it came to Mike Flynn. Remember the notes that we have, he told the FBI. Put your best people on it. This is after the FBI concluded there was no criminality. Correct. So Barack Obama's a cheerleader, he's in the know he's read in all the way through. If he committed the crime. We'll have to see what the evidence is. But make no mistake. He was in on this dirty trick from start to finish. So let me switch gears to Andrea. Tele Zenko. People don't know who he really is on DH should Former Ukrainian diplomat. He's been working with the Senate to expose the Biden's in Ukraine. Ah, he has been, I think an instrumental source all the way along. He had been trying to testify in front of Congress. And then they they keep stopping it for some reason. Ah, and now we just heard from him yesterday. He is in hiding, and he has had his U. S visa revoked by the State Department. Why Well, I'm going to answer that question next week with more detail, But I think there is something very explosive that he provided to the Senate last May in June that would be one of the biggest embarrassment to the Obama Biden administration. And once I got known inside the Senate committee, the Senate Democrats and their friends in the deep state of the State Department executed a strategy to smear him just like they did Devin Nunes, just like they did me during impeachment. We could go through all the people who had the courage to Tell the truth, and they get attacked in ways of extraordinary intensity, ruining their reputations, their careers, other things next week, I will be able to answer that I have the actual documents. What it was Andre Teller. Senko turned over to the Senate that got the Democrats alarm. And I think when people see that you'll see that the dirty trick that we've been talking about which clearly involved the FBI coming volatility. Clinton CAMPAIGN Clearly, Barack Obama's in the know Clearly the FBI's in the know the CIA's in the know there's going to be some more people in the know and it's going to take it right into the Obama Biden White House, But I got to finish up the reporting on that. I hope next week we'll be able to tell the American people. The piece of evidence that was the hair trigger that scared the Democrats into beginning to attack Genco. Let's keep him on. I wrote a story Couple weeks ago, Andre Tele Shenker was the best buddy of the Obama White House. He was constantly meeting with people like Eric Carmela and Liz Santos people right under Joe Biden, Barack Obama. They only turned on him when he gave up the goods on something that I think will make everybody shocked to see you next week..

"I think from The president, which is that I don't mind if counterintelligence officers are paranoid and they launch investigation, so long investigations are secret, and they do not cross into the public realm of become politicized. And that we have to trust the integrity of the FBI, and they're in the leadership of the FBI and the Justice Department that when they get evidence that contradicts This. Then they close those investigations. That's how it is supposed to work. And that's what really growth down in this particular case, So Sally Yates is important because she is the acting attorney general in this transitional period. And to what we saw in this a couple things. One is that He said at one point sort of the most famous clip is that she said she believed that James Comey went rogue when he sent FBI agents to interview Mike Flynn. I think its fourth day on the job in the White House Um, And that's what she wanted to do was informed the White House and follow normal protocol so that the general counsel that Trump's general counsel would have now that the FBI was interviewing. Michael Flynn is part of an investigation. He would have access to counsel and you know, that probably would have saved Mike Flynn. A lot of lot of problems at that point. She also said that you would not have signed the FISA warrant that you find on Carter Page and she known now known, Ben rather what she knows now. But she still defended what I think it's kind of a goofy theory that you know Mike Flynn lied to vice president Pence in the transition and therefore he could have been susceptible to blackmail from the Russians because he said he didn't discuss sanctions with the Russian ambassador during the transition and The reason I think that that's Ah, a risible claim that she would make it this point because We now have access to the transcript was declassified about six weeks ago by Rick Grenell, who was the acting director of National intelligence. And you can read the transcript of his phone conversations with Kislyak yourself. The sanction of issue barely comes up. Kislyak. The ambassador raises it. Lynn is not committed to it. His main purpose in that phone call plane is saying don't escalate on the expulsion. The US expelled Russian spies assed part of the action and you didn't want the Russians to escalate when they were coming into office. And even in that period is a point that was never made, and it's really important, he says. I don't want to get into a tip attack. You want to be tough guys here? Well, that's consistent threat that if the Russians were to escalate that the U. S would have to then escalate now, how is that the actions of a Russian asset, which is watching Fline with initially being investigated for so how in the world is that transcript reason for keeping the investigation open into whether Flynn is for intelligence agent instead. The argument is well, it was undermining our policy. When it came, you know, outgoing Obama administration to deter Russia from their election interference. Maybe so it's a matter of opinion. The point is that that's not a reason to keep on in counterintelligence investigation open into the national security advisor of the opposition party's president, you know of the opposition. Of the Republic of the new Republican president. So that's where she still is sort of sticking to the talking points, she said the same thing three years ago when he testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee, and in that respect, it's like pulling teeth. I mean, Democrats will now at least the honest one Foreknowledge..

The Hill criticizes, but does not recant, Solomon articles
"You broke the news that the user but Chris Murphy and other democratic senators met with Zarif the foreign minister of Iran yes and that was my story that we published the federalist on Monday and I tried to get comments from European the other people and should be in there and they declined to comment but one secretary of state my coupon Hey addressed the meeting which had been not approved by the state department then finally Murphy admitted that he had taken part in a secret meeting in the hotel room of the three and that he's done it actually before too and mostly what I find interesting about this is that Murphy isn't as extreme critic of legitimate our conversations with people who are leaders of other countries so for instance when my claim the incoming national security adviser had a conversation intending to de escalate the situation with Russia with the ambassador from Russia Hey kids we act of mercy thought that it was treasonous says with a legal that it definitely needs to be investigated that it was a Logan act violation this is the view also shared by The Washington Post you might remember David Ignatius received that leak about the kids react on call and put out an article about how it is legitimate to think this was the Logan act violation the department justice pursued Logan act violations that happened with the pretext they used to go interview Flynn you know and when was the incoming national security adviser to doing exactly what you should have been and in fact she's been doing with more people were as Murphy is a strong opponent of our current policy toward Iran he has some questionable ties to redeem undead or supported groups and he was publicly opposing our policy the same day that he had this meeting and yet he wants to say that what he did was perfectly fine I'm I'm sure I'm speechless because it's so obviously inconsistent hi is anybody coaling Murphy out on this and were there other senators present the others who were reported to be there any information kinda came because other European countries knew about this meeting even though the United States did not in the state let's not talk about it but some of them are other you know senators were there like men that van Hollen is reported to be trying to get into the meeting on the th and clear if he actually make it into the meeting or not but also reported to be John Kerry who has previously had such woke interactions with Iranian regime leaders and Murphy's defense of what he did with that he sits on the foreign affairs committee he's a senator Hughes and a co equal branch of government he has the right to do this well that wouldn't explain John Kerry being there and so while he was somewhat transparent or claim to be transparent about what they talked about he hasn't been transparent about who else is participating and so we definitely need to know more about well established events that it's a co equal branch of government does that negate the login law violation well first off you know there's a difference in being co equal branch of government and doing your own foreign policy don't lie in the states so I'm asking is is settled is it a an illegitimate defense then well I don't personally believe the Logan act is constitutional that new point was not shared by Obama department of justice or Sally eight Sir James yeah but for general Flynn a great great American all right ruined by on the basis of this right and so if you're going to enforce the login after use it as a pretext to investigate and destroy someone's life and bankrupt them and threatened with prison I don't see why it's okay to do it to Mike Flynn who actually got a legitimate function in right talking with his Russian counterpart but not to use against Murphy who's actually got some pretty problematic attachments with the Iranian regime and sent me water his problematic attachments he'd like to speak it the group then Nyack the national Iranian American council which is forty funded by Iranian regime leaders and started by so we can sell and it was very supportive of the Iranian regime and he was very upset you might remember when senator Tom cotton wrote a public open letter nothing secretive about it at all to the leaders of the other lines encouraging them not to do the G. C. P. O. a with with a bomb and reminding them that you know if it weren't ratified by the Senate with people work much he was so upset about that so they just it's very interesting what Murphy gets upset about and when he does

I have told you from the start that there was an international operation with multiple players involved in multiple countries and former intelligence officials to circumvent US laws on spying on American citizens as a way around it to spy on Donald Trump using foreign intelligence actors now, none of this is new, but I wanted to tell you this because I have some older articles here that show you the relationship here. Let me walk you through this. In dismember. I told you about Mike Flynn last week. How I believe this all started with Mike Flynn, the Russian narrative with Mike Flynn. Mike Flynn was a target of the Obama administration. Mike Flynn was the deputy excuse me the Defense Intelligence Agency head during the Obama administration. Mike Flynn was an enemy the Iran deal. He became a target of the Obama administration. The Obama administration needed a way to discredit Mike Flynn what better way to discredit Mike Flint into claim. He was a traitor guilty of treason collaborating with the Russians. This started a while back with Mike Flynn, the Russian narrative, I don't believe it started initially just with Donald Trump. I think it started as a test run on Mike Flynn. How do we know this? So just to be clear, we're saying the Obama administration's trying to figure out a way to discredit people. I believe Flynn is the first one of the bunch. They discredit them by saying, hey, he has Russian ties. He gets invited. Mike flynn. Back in twenty fourteen to speak at Cambridge intelligence seminar. This is when Flynn is I creep in on remember, he's the DIA director. Then he's first creeping on the radar back in twenty four twenty fourteen of the Obama administration as one of their political enemies. So all of a sudden they need a way to tie Mike Flynn to the Russians to paint Flynn as an uncritical source. Conveniently he gets invited to speak at an intelligence seminar Cambridge intelligence seminar over where Joe in London, remember the Brumbrella topic. We're talking about the UK United United States intelligence ties in an effort to spy on Trump to circumvent our laws. Get the basically get the UK to do their dirty work never going to be allowed in the UK again. By the way, I'm serious. I will not go there. I'm afraid to go there because I'm not saying I'm not even thinking I don't want to sound like some kind of whacko, but I'm serious like the after hearing all these stories, I'm like terrified to travel anymore because this stuff actually happened. I can't believe it happened in in what are generally democratic free countries. He gets invited to speak at this Cambridge intelligence seminar back in twenty fourteen at that intelligence seminar. There are allegations show that what happened. Oh, a Russian woman by the name of look over. They had some inappropriate contact at this Russia keep in mind. No, one else seems to know no one else has any knowledge that these were inappropriate contacts at all the DIA guy. Who's there with Flynn says I didn't notice anything at all? But there's some allegations start to creep out that this woman are less name as Cova that her and Flynn had some inappropriate contact at Cambridge intelligence seminar. In other words, whisper campaign against Flint starts to develop the Russians are here. The Russians are here. The Russians are here. They got their claws and Mike Flynn who just conveniently happens to be an ideological opponent of the Barack Obama administration. Now. Who is involved with that Cambridge intelligence seminar? Who situ are members of it? Oh, the fun Halpern. The very same Central Intelligence Agency spy who has been reported to be constantly pushing Carter page George popadopoulos about Russian. Hey, what are you guys know about the Russians? What do you know about the rest? In other words, a spy working for Obama administration intelligence officials to try and probe an intersect with the Trump team to get information about the Russians. It's how her who is alleged by the media shoot me by people who who know him. If you read the Chuck Ross peace, and the Jeff Carlson piece, it is how her who is alleged to have leaked to the media that Flynn's appearance at this intelligence seminar that he's a part of in two thousand fourteen that he had some contact with a Russian woman Russia's coming Russia's coming again..

They about what I just told. You talk about a circle of malfeasance. So you can't get a warrant because you have nothing. So what do you do you drop? A hint if you're in the FBI and DOJ, and you're an anti-trump hack like a lot of these upper level Komi stroke. Cub all types were. Bruce Orrin, the DOJ was a relationship with Christopher Steele. We know that they met right before crossfire hurricane investigation at the Trump started, right? They float to fusion. Hey, we need something the bureau the bureau is like we can't walk into a Pfizer court were nothing. We don't have enough. We've already gotten turned down. Once you need to give us something. They float that to fusion. We know ores connected to steal was working for fusion. Steal probably floats back to fusion. Hey, we need to produce more stuff. You know, Hillary's paying us for information Hillary's team. They know Obama they wanted formation. They gotta get this Trump team spied on they need it. All of a sudden, they well, let's go to some reporters. The reporters get when they need information. All of a sudden who randomly appears to feed the reporters information insiders in the Obama administration like Alexandra Chalupa and others who all of a sudden produce Intel remember the Evelyn Farkas paid on MSNBC when the insider at the Obama administration at the defense department went on MSNBC said, oh, if the Trump team only knew how we found out about their rusher stuff. The problem is they didn't know they were feeding it to everybody in their mother. Who would listen a bunch of reporters who were feeding it back to fusion who were feeding it back to the FBI? In a ring of stupid. Now, coincidentally not. Who is used in one of the original and subsequent Pfizer applications for Pfizer warrant to spy on the Trump demon rules. What reporter is used as a? Bedrock of factual of as what he's. As like a pillar to establish that their their case against Carter page in the Trump team is genuine what reporters reporting is used to buttress their case and the Pfizer court Micalizzi, call the same guy who in July seems to have information.

Even though it wasn't planted reported the trip and it reported the results afterwards that the newest. And once if the cough doesn't get a satisfactory answer from Flynn in July interview. And it's it's a strange answer. If you read the transcript Flynn appears taken aback by the questioning and says, I'm not being paid by the Russian government wants is a cough gets that on the record. Who then feeds that? Hey, we've got trouble here back to fusion to insert in the August tenth memo. Make sure you put Mike Flynn's name in there. Now, these people are subject to a Russian influence operation, Jill Stein, Karta bay, and Mike Flynn my somewhat of white out my. It's like they had a blank line getting wet.

"Only became a big deal after Mike Flynn started advocating openly for the Trump campaign for president for the presidency. John Salomon covered this Mike Flynn paid trip to Russia in December of two thousand fifteen whereas Flynn was seated at the same table as Ladimir Putin. Interestingly enough, the same CI assets, the fun helper who was reporting on popadopoulos and Carter page as well. Also does some reporting on that instance, with Flynn almost as if show they had a Central Intelligence Agency asset ready to provide information on Trump team members at the drop of a hat. Crazy. How that happens? How purchase keeps randomly appearing? But this trip to Russia which Flynn handle by the books folks that was out John Salomon's report in the hill. There is significant scope Atari information, Mike Flynn briefed the DIA despite not being in the DA anymore about the trip before he left. He did a briefing before he left any did a briefing after he came back discussing the ramifications of this trip to Russia. Everything Joe was done by the numbers with regards to the the intelligence nature of the visit. Nobody disputes that anymore. So why was the trip of big deal? The answer. Joe is it wasn't. It was only a big deal because Mike Flynn decided to start campaigning for the Trump team. Remember, the time line the trip happens in December two thousand fifteen nobody says anything, but all of a sudden right is Mike Flynn starts to openly advocate for Donald Trump for president. All of a sudden, these memos appear in August, and Mike Flynn's named seems to be randomly inserted in dossiers about Russian influence. Wow. Isn't that special? Just like Carter page keeps appearing in these memos with with successively more damaging pieces of information just enough to hurdle. A Pfizer court weren't despite the fact that none of it's true. Now. What's even more interesting? Remember, the names, folks? There's a journalist in my book spy gate that appears in almost like every other chapter. I think Michael Isikoff from Yahoo news, Michael Isikoff from Yahoo news is deeply embedded in this Michael Isikoff. If you again, if you read the book, you'll see is working with Alexandra Chalupa on the Paul Manafort angle, he's being fed information. He's a reporter. I let me just be clear. Michael Isikoff is no conservative. I have no beef with reporters taking it from. I'm not knocking Yesica if it's a cough as I've taken information from sources to I'm simply suggesting that the sources this cops getting information from our democrat beds in the government who are feeding as a cough. What they want him to believe that the Russians are trying to influence the Trump team in Flint. That's all I'm saying here. But what's fascinating Joe is right around the time. Mike, Flint start speaking out and advocating for the Trump team heavily in July of twenty sixteen. It's a cough confronts. Mike, Flynn and interviews, and what's one of the first questions out of his mouth, the transcription to the interviews. Available in Carson's piece in the show notes today. What do you think one of the first questions is a cough s flip of Joe this is killer? Hey, what about that trip to Russia in December twenty fifth? That nobody cared about. Until Flynn started advocating for Trump. Now, you may say all right, Dan. But that's July and the memo where Flynn's name seems to be randomly inserted into this steel memo indicating that Flynn may be subjected to may have been the subject of a Russian influence operation through payments and things like that. That's August tenth..

"Mike Flynn was the head of the DIA the Defense Intelligence Agency under Barack Obama. Mike Flynn was a sworn enemy of the Iran deal and was largely a truth teller in the Obama administration. The Obama administration didn't like that. It's probably clear given Mike Flynn's position as a senior intelligence official in the Obama administration that let's just say Joe fly. New stuff. Flynn probably knew a few things about the shenanigans. The Obama administration was up to Flynn had to be taken out Flynn became a target of the Obama team right away. Now, I covered this a little bit on last week show this if you want to listen to it it's called the scandal exposed, it's a great show. We got a ton of listeners on it. And it covers the background on what the Obama team in paragraph. One did to take out take out Mike Flynn. And when I say paragraph one I mean when in my prior line of work when you started investigation, there's a paragraph one that describes how it starts and all your reports what was paragraph one. What was the initial reason the Obama administration targeted the Trump team? I believe Mike Flynn and Mike Flynn joining the Trump effort to get elected during the Trump campaign Jacques giving speeches. I believe paragraph. One was in fact, some targeting of Mike Flynn. And now, I have more reason to believe so thanks to a tremendous. Piece in the epoch times by Jeff Carlson, who I've touted his work on this show often because it is tremendous. Now, here's the question. I want to ask today. Was there a two way street in the intelligence community to produce negative intelligence to nail people on the Trump team? Whole stand easy. I'll tell you what. I mean, ladies and gentlemen in a traditional intelligence operation to nail someone who may be a spy in the United States or maybe cooperating with a foreign government. The intelligence by nature has to go in one direction. Think about what I'm saying. Joe we have a potential spy in the United States, right, whatever the John Smith. John Smith is suspected to be working with the Russians. We get information about John Smith from another source who says, hey, Central Intelligence Agency, FBI, there's a mole in the United States. That guy's name is John Smith. I've seen some of his emails. I work with them at work. I think he's emailing the Russian government about state secrets in the United States. He has some access to a contractor portal. This is a bad guy. The information by nature has to be one way from sources to the Central Intelligence Agency. The information cannot ever by nature be two way. And what I mean, by to way, Joe is in order to nail John Smith in the United States espionage charges potential criminal charges by the bureau and others. The intelligence agency Joe can never go back to the source and say, hey, it would be really nice. If you said this. He you tracking can never be two ways. I now this may seem obvious. But until I explain that to you. The rest of the story won't make. I know a lot of you get this. So forgive me. I am in no way. Trying to talk down. I am just trying to establish that the information flow has the by nature be one way. Now, I'm not talking about working with them. You know, there are always suggest intelligence people can say, hey, you know, it'd be a good idea. If you could get us, this could you get us, the emails could you get some recorded phone calls that happens all the time. In other words, prods and suggests information core information central to the case cannot by nature flow. The other way. Eight can't they can't say to people who are sources. Hey, listen. It would be really nice. If you could say this this and this and this. Now leads again leads and potential like a it would be helpful that stuff happens all the time. But you cannot feed them bogus information a source with the hope that the source will feed back. The bogus information. That makes the bogus information appear credible..

"I remember Mike Flynn was supposed to be sentenced in late December. Yes, wasn't going. Well for him. And they just adjourn. The judge judge accused him of treason and two hours later came back and said, I didn't really mean that. Yeah. Yeah. It was a very weird day for the judge in for probably Mike Flynn. I'm short. But I think there's a lot of people looking back now retrospectively and saying, hey, what up about this? What what did we not understand? Why are people how could the judge overseeing his case misunderstand some of the facts and have to come back and apologize. And I think it goes back to that a lot of people are still influenced by the original media narrative of what the Russia collusion case was supposed to be versus what it's turned out to be. And I think that everybody continues to judge on what we I heard. And yet the facts have changed so dramatically. The other day. I saw Mike Isikoff who is one of the article one of the writers at Yahoo. Yahoo. He he had one of the leaks from the Steele dossier before the election. And then the FBI uses that leak, even though it came from steel as independent corroborating evidence, which raises a lot of concerns. He was quoted in venue as saying I don't think the field dossier is going to be going to turn out to be accurate. You don't think it's gonna have turned out to be true? That is a remarkable admission by reporter who stories drove some of the narrative, I think they're going to be some front page stories in the New York Times that when we look back. We'll turn out not to be accurate, but they set the expectation that we've all lived with for two years at the end of all this. We were going to have the smoking gun collusion. And I think now Muller's challenge is going to be if he doesn't have collusion he'd going into a marketplace that expects it, and it'll be interesting to see what that reaction is when we're all done it. Sure will and whether the new democratic controlled house will have the tenacity to take whatever Muller comes up with especially if it has nothing to do with Russian collusion and start impeachment hearings is going to be an interesting two years. John John Solomon. I'm glad that you're watching by the way, tangentially that venue that you're talking about Michael issacov's interview. It was with my colleague, John Ziegler who is a adamant anti. Trump Republican who writes it media and has a podcast. So it was it was very, you know, it's not like it was a Trump friendly setting a cough revealed that it's a it's an important venue. Actually, listen, I this is great writing as always from John Solomon at the hill. I've got a column coming tomorrow. The Washington Times that connect some dots on the Steele dossier, and how it was the insurance.

"It's apparent now that Mike Flynn was framed. Mike Flynn was framed because Mike Flynn was an enemy the Iran deal. The Iran deal was a big big part of the Obama administration being an enemy the Iran deal in truth teller made Mike Flynn. In an enemy of Obama. The Obama administration gets rid of Mike Flynn. Mike Flynn goes to Russia after that to give a speech, I conveniently a US intelligence asset spies on Mike Flynn at that meeting and reports back on him and investigation opens up into Mike Flynn after that the DIA had scope Warri information indicating Mike Flynn was innocent of anything in that. Russia Russia dinner why. Because Mike Flynn reported the the Russia trip before he left and reported on it when he came back. The DIA did not disclose that information in investigation, then was opened up into my Flint, despite the fact that they knew he was innocent of these charges of Russian collusion, and hackery and treachery. That investigation clearly went nowhere on the FIS the front of the legal front because there was no evidence of a crime. They had a takedown Flynn. They had to take down Flynn and the Trump team at the same time Flint is conveniently working with the Trump team now, which is an extra threat to a bomb. They open up. A case against Carter page, they have no crime against Carter page either. But they're not gonna make the same mistake. They made with Mike Flynn. They didn't have a crime against Flynn this time. They just make one up they get a series of memos from Christopher Steele. But those memos don't show a crime because he'll so stupid. He doesn't even put it in a memo, but they go back to steal. Hey, you need to put a crime in their steel. Conveniently includes in a later memo in allegation of bribery. One of the two forks needed for a five award all of a sudden defies awards opened up on Carter page, and they get the spy and listening on pages calls pages. Emails and everyone else do the to hop. Will. He do hop role that he emails and they Email after that. What's the? Khuda gras this story. What happens right after Donald Trump takes office because because there is still an ongoing investigation into Russian collusion that never happened via a warrant against Carter page to keep this Russian collusion. Fairytale going. Who gets interviewed at the White House. Joe? Mike flynn. Under the predicate that they're trying to clear up Russian collusion that never happened Flint is interviewed at the White House about a call that the Obama administration listened in on because they're still investigating X files like fairytale made up Russian collusion. Flynn is in arrested and prosecuted later on and silenced for a conversation. He had and not remembering accurately every word of it. But the only reason the interview ever happened in the investigation at the Flynn ever happened was because the Russian collusion fairytale was kept alive after it fell apart after the initial attack on Mike Flynn. Folks Flynn is the key to all of this.

Comey slams Trump, 'shameful' GOP after 2nd Capitol Hill meeting
"The former head of the FBI is back on Capitol Hill. USA's Robin relents ski reports. James, call me, the former FBI director back on Capitol Hill testifying for almost six hours at a hearing before House Republicans behind closed doors Komi takes the opportunity at a news conference to rail against President Trump Republicans and Fox News topics that the hearing reportedly include the Steele dossier. Mike, Flynn and hill. Hillary Clinton's emails, Ohio, congressman, Republican, Jim Jordan. You can just go to last week where he said he got away with not following the rules when they interviewed Mike Flynn got away with not actually allowing Mike Linda have I think his constitutional rights when the FBI interviewed him, and there's a host of other things that he did that just weren't consistent with how you're supposed to do things
What to expect from the second Paul Manafort trial
"About what Bob Muller could get from Paul Manafort. He already has his deputy Rick gates. He already has Mike Flynn. What was Muller want with Manafort? What would Muller demand in order for any sort of leniency or any sort of deal for Paul Manafort. I have maybe a slightly less sensational less interesting view of what the topic of these clean negotiations might have been Manafort doesn't really look like someone who has the ability to go in and engage in the sort of full cooperation that prosecutors would demand to complete a cooperation agreement. So what would Manafort have that he could offer prosecutors who've just finished trying the case in the eastern district of Virginia now have to gear up and go to trial again in Washington, and that's a considerable expenditure of time and resources, especially if they have the intention to work on additional cases. So if Manafort were to offer to plead guilty, it would for prosecutors being officiency gain, and he could possibly seek from them rather than cooperation, some sort of a leniency perhaps on the amount of his property that might be seized leaving him with resources that would provide for. His his family while he's in prison. So I would resist leaping to the conclusion that the conversation fell apart over cooperation and think that it might be a much more men mundane sort of negotiation over a plea.
Trump agrees with recommendation to pardon Scooter Libby
"His administration to develop some sort of plan to change the system at very well could impact amazon as a company although amazon is not singled out by name in the text of the executive order and the second piece brian is a part in the president's planning to pardon scooter libby we all remember that name from the two thousand seven trial involving the former covert cia agent valerie plame and scooter libby was convicted of obstruction of justice and of making false statements and perjury now he was he was not pardoned by president george w bush at the time although his prison sentence was commuted so he did not have to serve any time in jail but he was not ever pardoned by bush trump has decided has told people inside the white house that he will pardon libby and libya's important because he was a top aide top national security advisor to then vice president dick cheney so joyce i won't ask you to come out on amazon which is probably big enough to be able to say you know what we're good we'll form our own postal service by the trucks and the planes and hire the people but on scooter libby philip just touched on it why answer this question no one was was asking why scooter libby why now well i think that we'll have to draw the obvious conclusion libby was convicted in two thousand and seven ironically by a special counsel who was appointed by jim komi of all people and scooter libby was convicted of perjury of obstruction of justice and of lying to the fbi his sentence was commuted there's no urgency to fire him at this particular moment in time and it's really hard to miss how strongly this reeks of being a signal that trump is willing to issue a pardon for these particular types of crimes to someone who had this high level of standing inside of the white house almost as though it's a message to paul manafort or to mike flynn in in many ways feels like the circle of policy and this administration is fully completed this point with trump starting out complaining about hillary clinton and potential release of classified material and now pardon.
