News Analysis🔎The post-#Election push to pressure President Trump to concede, despite numerous credible allegations of #VoterFraud and ongoing legal challenges, is the culmination of a 4-year-long campaign against him. (Thread👇) theepochtimes.com/infographic-th…
This campaign started in 2016 when the #FBI launched a politically motivated investigation of his campaign. During his subsequent 4 years in office, there have been consistent efforts to remove him from office.
#Infographic: an overview of some of the main efforts made against the sitting @POTUS.

This is an issue that transcends party lines, as it is not only an assault on Trump, but an assault on the office of the presidency, and with it, an assault on the foundation of America.

Federal Judge REFUSES TO DISMISS #PeterStrzok and #LisaPage’s Lawsuits Against #Barr’s DOJ Over Release of Texts

Like #McCabe, #Strzok and Page say they were fired from their positions at the FBI in an act of political retaliation

#MOG
lawandcrime.com/lawsuit/federa…
Trump has repeatedly vilified #FBI “lovers” Page and Strzok, claiming their messages proved the “DEEP STATE” CONSPIRACY THEORY that federal investigators attempted to malign the president as part of a politically motivated coup to remove him from office.

#MOG
“The concerted public campaign to disparage and, ultimately, fire Special Agent #Strzok was enabled by the defendants’ deliberate and unlawful disclosure to the media of texts, intended to be private, from an FBI systems of records, in violation of the Privacy Act, 5 USC § 552a”

#Rosenstein SECRETLY CRIPPLED THE #MUELLER INVESTIGATION

The former deputy AG maneuvered to keep investigators from completing an inquiry into whether the president’s personal and financial links to Russia posed a national security threat

#MOG nytimes.com/2020/08/30/us/…
#Rosenstein concluded the #FBI lacked sufficient reason to conduct an investigation into the president’s links to Russia

He suspected that the acting bureau director who approved the opening of the inquiry, Andrew G. McCabe, had conflicts of interest

#MOG
#Rosenstein never told #McCabe about his decision, leaving the #FBI with the impression that the special counsel would take on the investigation into the president

McCabe said had he known #Mueller would not continue the inquiry, he would have had the F.B.I. perform it.

#EpochTimes provides a comprehensive timeline of details from the #IGReport, describing how the #FBI rushed to #Spy on the Trump campaign and the flaws in its case.

See more: theepochtimes.com/infographic-ti…
In its pursuit of establishing #Surveillance on the Trump campaign, the #FBI turned its attention to @CarterWPage in the spring of 2016, culminating in the issuance of a #FISA warrant—which allows for some of the most intrusive #Spying methods on an US citizen.
As part of this process, the #FBI relied extensively on the flawed #SteeleDossier, leading an @FBI legal counsel to note that this was “essentially a single source FISA.”

News Analysis🔎The belief that Lt. @GenFlynn was set up by the @FBI has been backed up by a string of evidence in documents released by the #DOJ. (Thread👇) theepochtimes.com/flynn-was-set-…
#Flynn pleaded guilty in 2017 to one count of lying to the @FBI.

On May 7, however, the #DOJ dropped the case against him, saying that when #FBI interviewed #GeneralFlynn on Jan. 24, 2017, the investigation into him was “no longer justifiably predicated.” theepochtimes.com/doj-drops-case…

In a newly unredacted footnote from the @JusticeOIG #IGReport on #FISAabuse, the urgency behind the @FBI obtaining a #FISA warrant on Trump campaign adviser @CarterWPage becomes clear. (Thread👇) theepochtimes.com/declassificati…
In the #IGReport, #Horowitz detailed a last-minute flurry of activity that transpired ahead of the issuance of the @CarterWPage #FISA, including a possible intervention from then-Deputy @FBI Director McCabe, to push a seemingly reluctant #DOJ official, Stuart Evans, for approval.
“Footnote 276” was initially redacted in the #IGReport, but was declassified, among other footnotes, following a request from @SenRonJohnson and @ChuckGrassley.

Later that month, the @FBI raided the home of veteran Republican strategist #RogerStone in front of @CNN cameras.

2 top @FBI officials in spring 2016 informed AG #LorettaLynch of intelligence they received linking the #Russian gov to @CarterWPage months before an investigation into the Trump campaign was formally launched, according to the #IGReport.

Lynch told DOJ #IGHorowitz that in the spring of 2016, @FBI Director @Comey and Deputy Director #AndrewMcCabe pulled her aside and shared info about Page that Lynch believed they learned from a member of the intelligence community.
@FBI @Comey The timing of the encounter between #Lynch, @Comey, and #McCabe raises questions about what actions the agencies took in connection to the Trump campaign before formally opening a counterintelligence investigation—codenamed #CrossfireHurricane—on July 31, 2016.

In light of today's events I find the timing of this very interesting.
Questions that immediately come to mind:
1) Who is the person(s) behind this?
2) Is something known or is this just optimistim?
3) How long before some of McCabe's pals come knocking?

Newly released #DOJ emails reveal details about the internal response by the agency to allegations that then-Deputy AG @RodRosenstein had wanted to #Wiretap President Trump and invoke the #25thAmendment against him. (Thread 👇) theepochtimes.com/doj-emails-rev…

#RobertMueller will be testifying before the House Judiciary and Intelligence committees on July 17.

Here are some crucial questions that should be asked when he testifies (Thread 👇). | Article by Jeff Carlson @themarketswork theepochtimes.com/33-key-questio…
1) Did #AttorneyGeneral Barr in any way misrepresent your 448-page report?

#Mueller failed to identify the grand jury info in the #MuellerReport. Barr noted that “it immediately meant that you know it was going to be a period of weeks before we could get the report out.”
2) Who actually wrote Volume I and Volume II of the #MuellerReport?

At this point, it isn’t known with certainty if #Mueller had any hand in writing the report directly, or if he simply served in an oversight capacity.

2) 1 président #Trump, sûr que des agents du #FBI ont commis des actes de trahison- passibles de mort- contre lui, autorise son ministre de la Justice pour publier des infos de sécurité nationale, pouvant compromettre méthodes et agents du renseignement, pour le prouver. Voilà.

#AttorneyGeneral Barr is working to review the techniques used to investigate Trump’s 2016 campaign.

Here are 10 key questions that remain to be answered in the scandal that has become known as #Spygate (Thread 👇):

Commentary by @JasperFakkert theepochtimes.com/spygate-origin…
1. What was the role that @CIA and John Brennan’s ‘Interagency Task Force’ played?

Former CIA Director Brennan admitted that he passed intelligence received from the #UK on the Trump campaign to the @FBI with the intention of having them investigate it:
“It served as the basis…
… for the FBI investigation to determine whether such collusion [or] cooperation occurred.”

Notably, Brennan met with then-head of the #UK #Spy agency @GCHQ, Robert Hannigan, in #Washington in 2016. The meeting was unusual, since Hannigan’s US equivalent…

During the 2016 elections, officials in the #Obama admin, including cabinet-level officials, extensively spied on the campaign of then-candidate Trump.

So far, at least 5 different ways officials spied on the Trump campaign have been uncovered. (Thread 👇)theepochtimes.com/the-five-metho…
1. National Security Letters

@FBI, at the time headed by Director @Comey and Deputy Director #McCabe, used counterintelligence tools known as #NationalSecurity letters to spy on the Trump campaign.
2. FISA Warrant

The #FBI and #DOJ obtained a #FISA spy warrant on #CarterPage, a volunteer adviser to the Trump campaign. Under the so-called “two-hop” rule, the FISA warrant could have been used to spy on anyone with two layers of separation from Page himself.

The FBI's justification for allowing #McCabe to oversee Hillary's email probe was that his wife already lost the election where she got $467,500 from Hillary's friend.

Preposterous. So let's look at the timeline.

@themarketswork @TheLastRefuge2 @LeeSmithDC @ChuckRossDC
1. In June 2015, Terry McCauliffe's PAC donated $15,000 to Jill #McCabe (before FBI opened email probe).

2. In July 2015, FBI opens #Hillary email probe.

3. On August 11, the IC IG first revealed existence of 5 classified emails on Hillary's server. Pressure starts building
4. August 12: Hillary turns over Bleachbit wiped email server to FBI

5. On August 31st: State releases 7k emails and 125 deemed classified. More pressure building

6. Same day, McCaulliffe PAC donates $2,500 to #McCabe's wife. Still not enough pressure to panic. Emails deleted
