The #FISACourt also noted that the #DOJ had made the assessment that with regard to these 2 applications, “there was insufficient predication to establish probable cause to believe that [@CarterWPage] was acting as an agent of a foreign power.”

Year in Review📅20 Notable Spygate Developments of 2019

by @IvanPentchoukov (Thread👇) theepochtimes.com/year-in-review…
In the saga of “#Spygate,” 2019 has shaped up to be the year the tables turned.

In the first days of January 2019, a federal judge extended the term of the #GrandJury in the #SpecialCounsel investigation by #RobertMueller.
Later that month, the @FBI raided the home of veteran Republican strategist #RogerStone in front of @CNN cameras.

The raid and indictment of Stone were symbolic of the spectacle that was the #RussiaInvestigation.

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.

(Thread👇) theepochtimes.com/comey-and-mcca…
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.

Acting @FBI Director #McCabe opened a criminal investigation of President Trump on May 16, 2017, one day before Deputy AGl @RodRosenstein appointed #SpecialCounsel #RobertMueller, according to a memo by McCabe released by @JudicialWatch.

(Thread 👇)theepochtimes.com/mccabe-opened-…
In the memo, #McCabe wrote that he had “approved the opening of an investigation of President Donald Trump” on the morning of May 16, 2017.

McCabe informed @RodRosenstein of the opening of the investigation at 12:30 p.m. on that same day.
The memo, which was obtained by @JudicialWatch on Sept. 20, is the 1st document to publicly confirm that #McCabe opened a formal investigation of Trump shortly before @RodRosenstein appointed the #SpecialCounsel to run the investigation.

#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.

The narrative of #ObstructionOfJustice originated prior to the conclusion of the #MuellerReport. (Thread 👇)

Less than 6 months after #Mueller’s appointment, @BrookingsInst published “Presidential Obstruction of Justice: The Case of Donald J. Trump.” theepochtimes.com/tracing-the-or…
The report outlined a scenario whereby #Mueller would refer his #Obstruction findings to #Congress, which would then take up the matter and continue investigating.

The report also discussed ways Congress could #ImpeachTrump, mentioning the word “#Impeachment” 90 times.
2 of the report's authors, Barry Berke & @NormEisen, were later retained by #HouseJudiciaryCommittee Chairman @RepJerryNadler on a consulting basis as special oversight counsels to the Democrat majority staff. judiciary.house.gov/news/press-rel…

News Analysis 🔎| The #MuellerReport appears to have been carefully worded by lawyers working under former #SpecialCounsel #RobertMueller, and perhaps #Mueller himself, in a manner designed to inflict political damage on President Donald Trump.

Thread 👇theepochtimes.com/5-discrepancie…
What makes these examples particularly notable is that access to the underlying material used in the #MuellerReport is extremely limited.

In instances where information is publicly available, they highlight inconsistencies, raising concerns that the report may be hiding more.

1) This thread is about an occurrence during the #TrumpRussia #SpecialCounsel investigation that, even though not popularly recognized, represents a major contradiction within the final #MuellerReport.
2) That occurrence is the failed redaction of #PaulManafort's legal team's release of their #SentencingMemorandum.
3) First, the #SpecialCounsel released their #SentencingMemorandum for the #PaulManafort trial.

That #SentencingMemorandum contained redactions that hid facts from the Manafort investigation from the Public, and Congress.

#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…

1. Here it is folks, the #1 reason for the #WitchHunt - to stall Trump's ability to go after treasonous bastards. Now that @POTUS is free and clear, the next election cycle is coming. Any investigations Trump asks for will be seen as going after political rivals.
2. If there'd never been a #SpecialCounsel, or if it had ended abruptly and appropriately, DJT could have made arrests and it would be seen as nothing more than justice and the keeping of promises he made in his campaign. But now, 2 years later, with 2020 looming, that changes.
3. Little Adam Schitt lays out the next step in the #DeepState plan - make Trump's efforts to arrest traitors look like a politically biased move against his political opponents so he can win in 2020.

News Analysis 🔎 | Over the past month, there has been an inversion of people’s opinions of #RodRosenstein.

Those who praised him are now claiming he has been running interference for President Trump, while his critics have begun to reassess his actions. theepochtimes.com/as-rosenstein-…
#Rosenstein submitted his resignation letter to the president on April 29, with an effective date of May 11.

Rosenstein had previously discussed his intent to resign from his post when a new #AttorneyGeneral was confirmed, following the resignation of @JeffSessions
…After the appointment of #WilliamBarr as #AttorneyGeneral in February, however, #Rosenstein stayed on to assist #Barr in guiding him through the #MuellerReport.

Rosenstein had knowledge of the more intimate details of the case and its underlying focus.

Is there any indication of a possible Republican plot to go through the motions of investigating #TrumpRussia, & then concluding that a conspiracy didn't occur?

Let's examine possible evidence of this plot.
On 3/26/2018, (1 year before the #MuellerReport), after 1 year of investigation the then Republican lead House Intelligence Committee released their highly redacted report on #TrumpRussia, "Report on Russian Active Measures, March 22, 2018".

documentcloud.org/documents/4448…
The Republican members of #HouseIntel shattered their commitment, and rushed to end the investigation after only one year. The same as the Special Counsel investigation was ended prematurely by AG William Barr on 3/22/2019.

#SpecialCounsel #RobertMueller reached an unambiguous conclusion in the final report on his investigation into #Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election: Neither President Trump nor any member of his campaign colluded with #Russia. (Thread 👇)theepochtimes.com/no-collusion-b…
#SpecialCounsel identified 2 primary efforts by the #Russian gov't to interfere in the 2016 election: the Internet Research Agency (IRA) and a group of Russian #Military intelligence officials with the GRU.
The IRA coordinated an illegal campaign to influence voters via #socialmedia, while GRU hacked Democratic targets and published the stolen emails online.

In both cases, #Mueller did not find evidence to suggest that any American knowingly conspired with #Russia.

Barr said #Russia did interfere, but nobody on the Trump campaign colluded with them.
3/ #Barr also said that it was #Russia who provided the emails to @Wikileaks. No member of the Trump campaign, however, worked with or coordinated with @Wikileaks in the release of the documents.

1. #TrueStory - A #Leftist, soon to be a #RedPilledPatriot if they keep reading my posts; says NewsWeek stated back in November they received leaked info from Mueller's people that DJT was indeed individual 1 in the #SpecialCounsel investigation, so that suggests POTUS is guilty.
2. Here's the deal...ALL special counsel information is HIGHLY classified. So, ANY leaks from ANY member of that investigation is a federal felony! It would also compromise any court case moving forward because the jury pool would be tainted with knowledge of the investigation.
3. So what this #Leftist is telling me, is NewsWeek is illegally printing, illegally leaked information, from an unlawful investigation that was predicated on an illegally obtained FISA warrant by using the fake Steele Dossier, that was paid for by the FBI, DNC, and HRC. Got it?

Barr-Huber Meeting
On March 7, Barr had a notable meeting with Attorney John Huber of #Utah, who had been appointed as vice chair of the AG’s Advisory Committee by former AG @JeffSessions to investigate “all the allegations that the House Judiciary Committee members sent to us.”
Sessions wrote:
“Mr. Huber is conducting his work… in cooperation with the Inspector General. The additional matters raised… fall within the scope of his existing mandate, and I am confident that Mr. Huber’s review will include a full, complete, and objective evaluation…”

While #SpecialCounsel #RobertMueller concluded there was no evidence of #Collusion between the Trump campaign and #Russia, some of the key people in creating the #RussiaCollusion narrative themselves have ties to a foreign nation.

(Thread 👇) theepochtimes.com/ties-to-ukrain…
Both the @DNC as well as #FusionGPS—the company hired by the DNC and the #Clinton campaign to research the Trump campaign—were using #Ukrainian sources in their efforts to discredit Trump.

Serhiy #Leshchenko, a Ukrainian member of parliament, was a common thread involved.
#Leshchenko, along with Artem Sytnyk, the director of #Ukraine’s National Anti-Corruption Bureau, was responsible for publicly disclosing the contents of the #Ukrainian “black ledger,” which implicated #Manafort, to the media.

Closed-door testimony: @TheJusticeDept prevented the FBI from pursuing certain charges against HIllary Clinton.

The @FBI would need to find a smoking gun to satisfy the unusually high threshold for prosecution set by @AGLynch's DOJ. @themarketswork theepochtimes.com/exclusive-doj-…
“…the truth of the matter is…there was not a single investigative step that we did not do in consultation with or at the direction of the Justice Department”

The word “intent” drove the @FBI’s investigation into the Clinton email server.

There were differing understandings, however, of the word “intent” within the FBI. #TrishaAnderson viewed intent as “I set up this server for the purpose of sending unclassified information for…
