Quick Summary & Analysis of Deep State-FBI War on Trump

In case you have not noticed every attack on president Trump has failed and even backfired including the all-out media war on candidate Trump leading up to the election of 2016.

Yet the War on Trump continues every day. In a shocking quote counterterrorism analyst and former CIA agent Philip Mudd said on the air on CNN that “the government’s gonna kill” Donald Trump because Trump has disrespected the Deep State.

Wow. Mudd walked back the comment a minute later at the prodding of the CNN host, but he originally said it without hesitation, apology or correction. In other words he verified that there are people in the Deep State in Washington who literally want the president dead. We already knew this but it is frightening to hear from a former CIA agent and Deep State insider. Thus the president needs to ramp up his security.

Meanwhile there are existing tweets and even an alleged informant suggesting that top officials at FBI held secret meetings to discuss ways to legally get rid of the president shortly after the election. Breitbart News reports:

Chairman of the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee Ron Johnson (R-WI) said Tuesday an informant has confirmed the existence of a “secret society” inside the FBI working against President Donald Trump.

“The secret society — we have an informant that’s talking about a group that were holding secret meetings off-site,” Johnson said on Fox News’s Special Report. “There’s so much smoke here, there’s so much suspicions.”

Reps. John Ratcliffe (R-TX) and Trey Gowdy (R-SC), House oversight and government reform committee chairman, first revealed there were texts between FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page mentioning the “secret society” on Monday.

“We learned today about information that after — in the immediate aftermath of [Trump’s] election, that there may have been a secret society of folks within the Department of Justice and the FBI, to include Page and Strzok, that would be working against them,” Ratcliffe said on Fox News’s The Story.

Amazing. This is going to ricochet back and take out top Deep Staters at the FBI. At the same time the special counsel Robert Mueller continues his fishing expedition against the president and the alleged Russia collusion. But Trump has fought back. The Hill website reported:

“I’m looking forward to it,” Trump said about being questioned by Mueller. “I would do it under oath.”

The president has repeatedly referred to the Russia probe as a “hoax” and said in December that the investigation “makes the country look very bad.”

“It puts the country in a very bad position,” Trump told The New York Times. “So the sooner it’s worked out, the better it is for the country.”

Trump’s apparent willingness to testify has driven the Fake News media bonkers. They expected him to be hiding in the White House laundry room from Mueller. But then again, this may be a feint. Trump may well never testify.

And the president is absolutely correct – this Mueller probe makes America look bad. It makes us look like we cannot operate a democracy and this is to some extent true. Democrats cannot operate a real democracy. They must steal as much political power as they can and that is what they are trying to do to the president – to steal his office away from him and to negate the will of the people in the 2016 election. We all must be very much alert to what they are doing. They literally want to shred the Constitution.

Let’s face it, this Mueller investigation stinks. It is based on mere allegations cooked up by Democrats only after Hillary lost the election. There is no evidence that Trump colluded with Russia.

Unfortunately for the Trump haters that has become almost accepted wisdom after more than a year of accusations. Perhaps you have noticed that virtually nobody is talking about Russia collusion and impeachment any longer.

That is why the Mueller investigation is moving on to other areas. It needs something for which to bring down Trump, even a misstatement which could be interpreted as a lie. That is why Mueller wants to interrogate Trump personally – to get him to make any type of misstatement for which to prosecute him.

Meanwhile Democrats are claiming that the president had no right to fire FBI director James Comey. That is false. President Trump had every right and every power to fire Comey. Don’t ever let anyone tell you that this was somehow questionable or illegal.

At the same time a 4-page “memo” that Republicans want to reveal to the public apparently has extremely damaging information about Comey himself and about two other Deep Staters. Look at this from The Gateway Pundit:

A controversial Republican memo alleging surveillance abuse specifically names FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein along with former FBI Director James Comey.

Capitol Hill sources on both sides of the aisle say the memo’s release is only a matter of time. And when it comes out, these current and former officials — all GOP bêtes noires — are likely to face even more criticism from the right over their involvement in FBI counterintelligence work.

Republicans, including Trump himself, have spent months attacking McCabe and Comey while special counsel Robert Mueller has been investigating Team Trump’s connections to the Kremlin. Rosenstein put that probe in place—a move Trump has derided as a witch hunt. […]

Rep. Chris Collins, a New York Republican, told The Daily Beast that Nunes has told Republicans his staff spent months putting the memo together.

The Daily Beast‘s report comes amid the Sessions Justice Department calling on House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) to allow the FBI to review the memo to ensure its release will not harm national security.

While on the face on it, the Justice Department’s request is both logical and prudent. However, once in possession of the memo, which is likely to expose the role of top level FBI and Justice Department officials in using the Steele dossier to obtain FISA spy warrants, what do you think bureau officials will do? Wage a fierce PR campaign against it and the Republican lawmakers who demand the memo to be released.

The first leak is confirmation of what Republican lawmakers have been hinting to the press for over a week.

During an appearance on CNN‘s morning show “New Day” Friday, Rep. Chris Stewart (R-UT) told host Chris Cuomo that the “essence” of the “shocking,” FISA abuse memo centers around whether or not the FBI and Justice Department provided false information to the FISA court for the purpose of obtaining spy warrants.

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) has hinted to Judge Jeanine Pirro that the memo outlines how the U.S. government may have committed fraud by presenting the courts with “false information,” to obtain FISA warrants.

“You’re aware as a Judge of the way evidence has to be authenticated and presented to a court to get a warrant,” said the Florida Republican.

“Of course, and prosecutors and investigators cannot perpetrate frauds on the court by presenting false information or information they know to be false,” Rep. Gaetz continued.

According to Fox News contributor Sara Carter, the contents of the memo are so “explosive,” that it could end special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe. Additionally, the memo’s release could lead to the prosecution of top FBI and Justice Department officials, contends the reporter.

In other words the Mueller investigation and the rest of the War on Trump appears to be doing yet another boomerang and is coming back to take out more and more members of the Deep State itself.

Example: The indictment of Paul Manafort was followed by the immediate closing down of Washington’s most influential lobbying firm, The Podesta Group. That group is the top Democrat powerhouse in DC but it was tied to Manafort way back in 2006, the period covered in the indictment.

And you can be sure that there is much more to this story than we know. Watch this one.

Meanwhile there are many calls for a special investigation of the Mueller investigation itself. PJ Media reports:

There is serious talk on Capitol Hill about the appointment of a second special counsel amid several new bombshell revelations swirling around the Trump/Russia probe. First, there are the allegations of shocking and substantial government surveillance abuses under President Obama outlined in the FISA abuse memo. Secondly, the FBI lost five months of key text messages between the anti-Trump/pro-Clinton FBI officials Peter Strzok and his mistress Lisa Page. And now there’s talk of a “secret society” of officials within the FBI that apparently met the day after the election of Donald J. Trump to plot against the president-elect.

Top Republicans now believe there may be real grounds for a second special counsel, Fox News reported.

Reps. Devin Nunes (R-CA), Trey Gowdy (R-SC), and Bob Goodlatte (R- VA) met on Saturday to discuss the FISA memo and the text messages.

According to Fox News, Nunes, Gowdy and Goodlatte are in the process of going through the steps necessary to release the four-page FISA memo and intend to see it released to the public by early February.

The FBI has demanded to see a copy of the memo, but so far — understandably — the Intelligence Committee has declined to show them their hand. Republicans believe that publishing the memo will but pressure on Attorney General Jeff Sessions to appoint a second special counsel, Fox News reported.

Reps Gowdey and Ratcliffe (R-TX) were on Fox News’ “The Story with Martha MacCallum” Monday night to talk about the latest developments.

Rep. Ratcliffe said that former FBI director James Comey needs to come back to Capitol Hill to testify again under oath on the question of when the decision to exonerate former secretary of State Hillary Clinton was made. The latest batch of text messages between Strzok and Page suggests that Comey was coordinating with Attorney General Lynch on the decision well ahead of his July 5 press conference.

The Gateway Pundit reports about text messages that may implicate FBI in criminality:

Trump Attorney Jay Sekulow joined Hannity on Monday night to discuss the latest news that the FBI “lost” five months of text messages between Chief FBI Investigator Peter Strzok and his mistress and FBI Attorney Lisa Page.

The FBI released 50,000 text messages between the two Trump bashers but deleted thousands of text messages during a five month period from December 2016 to May 2017.

The FBI said they lost them.

Jay Sekulow argued that the latest batch of emails prove former FBI Director James Comey lied under oath and committed a felony.

The text messages from those five months now have been found. Meanwhile Sekulow said:

Let me give you this, though. James Comey’s testimony under oath. Congressman Ratcliffe asked this question, “Did you make the decision not to recommend criminal charges relating to classified information before or after Hillary Clinton was interviewed by the FBI in July 2nd?” Director Comey, “After.” That’s a false statement. That’s a felony.

At the same time The Daily caller reports:

*The FBI’s top agent on the Trump-Russia investigation sent a text message last year that one top Republican senator says suggests he saw no evidence of Trump campaign collusion.
*The text message, which was sent by Peter Strzok, is “jaw-dropping,” Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson, the chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, said in a radio interview on Tuesday.
*In an interview with WISN-Milwaukee radio host Jay Weber, Johnson read aloud a May 19, 2017 text that Strzok sent to Lisa Page, an FBI lawyer and his mistress.
*Strzok wrote: “You and I both know the odds are nothing. If I thought it was likely, I’d be there no question. I hesitate in part because of my gut sense and concern that there’s no big there there.”
*Johnson said that the text referred to the Mueller investigation, which had kicked off two days earlier. Strzok joined that team, but was removed in July after the Justice Department’s inspector general discovered his anti-Trump text exchanges with Page.
*As the FBI’s deputy counterintelligence chief, Strzok was picked in July 2016 to oversee the investigation into possible Trump campaign collusion with the Russian government. Prior to that, he was a top investigator on the Clinton email inquiry.

And we know what a fraud the Clinton email investigation was, and the central role that Strzok played in that fraud. It is fascinating that even a Big Skunk like Strzok said that the Russia investigation was a big nothing.
