Is @benjaminwittes really complaining about overly zealous government surveillance?* The same Ben Wittes who cheered on every instance of unmasking and Boom Boomed every defense of the fraudulent FISA warrants on @carterwpage? That Ben Wittes?
*If you can count reading his Twitter feed and writing up reports “survelliance” 🤦🏻♂️
Do only woke interns run the ACLU’s feed now?
—America is a Republic, not a Democracy
—Congress sets the date of the Presidential election via federal law 3 USC § 1, it’s not in the constitution
—Debating delaying the election due to major disaster happened in ‘04, nobody cared
For those asking, this ain’t good. A majority voted to rehear the case. You have to assume for now that the same majority will vote to kick the case back to Sullivan and let him carry on his clown show, maybe with a slap on the wrist which means nothing
The only guaranteed way that Flynn goes free at this point is either a blanket pardon, or Trump is re-elected, giving this enough time to play out, possibly up to SCOTUS (plus some new DC Circuit appointments when vacant wouldn’t hurt either)
The Oregon Attorney General sued DOJ claiming Oregonians were being kidnapped off the street by unmarked officers, and used a video as evidence in the complaint
The video was taken in California, not Oregon 🤡🤡🤡
The AG lost, as you’d expect
Now former National Security Advisor Susan Rice is claiming federal officers are secretly working for private security firm ZTI, because some blue tick misread a shoulder patch that says ZT1, which is a unique identifier for the officer (which she’d know if she’d listened to DHS)
Has anyone else noticed that every single declassification of previously secret documentary evidence undermines, rather than supports, the Russia Collusion hoax?
In every other comparable case - e.g. Clinton, Nixon, it was the opposite. The more you knew, the worse they looked
And the people pushing the hoax (or failing to correct it) had access to a lot of this evidence in real time. There is a reason they suppressed it for nearly an entire presidential term, and “sources and methods” ain’t it - which is proven over and over with every new release
Also Primary Sub Source says that in March 2016 he was “clueless” about who Paul Manafort was. Yet then went on to supposedly provide allegations Manafort was the ringleader of the Collusion conspiracy?
Assuming this Berman quote attributed to AG Barr is true, it is disconcerting how Barr still misunderstands the nature of his opposition. Berman being fired doesn’t hurt his job prospects. It makes him a resistance hero in New York. He’ll be inundated with offers, book deals etc.
Obama Bros have no moral standing whatsoever to be angry that Russia may be paying terrorists to kill Americans. These are the same guys who sent billions to Iran who not only paid terrorists, but directly organized them and supplied them with sophisticated EFP explosives
Don't laugh but at this point my working theory about @GenFlynn and the Logan Act is that the people in the Obama administration got the idea from the freaking West Wing cable TV show
An episode at the end of the series ("Transition") shows the outgoing lame duck admin in a foreign policy dispute with China and Russia. They carry out electronic surveillance of all calls with Russia and wiretap the incoming team and confront them about...
...the Logan Act!
That theory - while it sounds nuts - is actually more plausible than the other two:
a) The Obama FBI or Justice Dept. thinking they could prosecute the Logan Act against anyone, let alone an incoming National Security Advisor
Elias (an acting CoS to an Assistant Attorney General) made some serious whistleblower allegations about selective antitrust prosecutions. I’m not going to be flippant about them, but he said he’d “referred” them to the DOJ IG...okay, so did they get investigated, or not? 🤔
Rep. Collins just read into the record a letter into the record from OPR saying at least some of Elias allegations related to Cannabis subpoenas were investigated and found to be without merit
