2. Political 'declassification conundrum': POTUS can’t declassify without following due process. But 'due process' involved the co-operation/involvement of many people covering up the rampant crimes in the FBI, DOJ, State department, POTUS-44, White House, GCHQ and Australia.
1. Interesting. Listen at 02:50 of video (prompted, just hit play)
2. Very interestingly at 03:05 of the video POTUS Trump makes note of pro-active phone calls from two foreign governments (likely UK and Australia) prior to fulfillment of the declassification releases of within the FISA application used against Carter Page. [ie 'spy-gate']
3. During the declassification process any potentially impacted intelligence entity or ally is contacted in advance as part of the declassification review. publicpool.kinja.com/subject-statem…
A few of us have surmised for some time that Brennan briefed the Go8 individually in Aug/Sept 2016 because each briefing was purposefully different. This is the first indication of factual evidence therein.
2. This shifts the legal issues with executive declassification from the Office of the President (who might hold a legal conflict), to executive fulfillment of legislative branch oversight. [Similar to Nunes memo declassification process]
Mr. @Kevin_Shipp wasn't the only one holding back. Unfortunately, too many people bought into the fraud perpetrated by a constructed scheme of Mr. Caron and Mr. Macias/Blum; and further promoted by those who never did their due diligence prior to advocacy.
1. This might be unpopular, but I'm not convinced President Trump is likely to declassify the Carter Page FISA application for multiple reasons.
2. Reason #1 is the request is not from an official agency, DoD/Intelligence entity, or legislative committee with oversight. The request is from a group of representatives.
3. Prior executive declassification request came from official and authorized oversight. Most recent was Nunes Memo which was for HPSCI and requested by Chair of Gang of Eight oversight (Devin Nunes) w/ approval from SoH (Ryan).
1. Going back to the first release(s). Why were the Lisa Page and Peter Strzok text messages ever redacted in the first place?
2. If the current DOJ and FBI were *NOT* involved in assisting a cover-up on behalf of the prior DOJ and FBI wouldn't they be forthcoming with congressional oversight?
3. The IG specifically outlined severe violations of "procedure" within the FBI with the ongoing contact and coordination with the media. Can we identify a single internal accountability event, within the FBI, in the five months since that IG report?
1. There has been some confusion about whether NAFTA is indeed actually "dead", and whether the newly announced bilateral pact with Mexico needs Congressional approval. The short answer is, it depends.
2. President Trump has two routes (both good for the U.S.), depending on what Canada does, based on the existing NAFTA pact and the 1993 implementation act passed by both branches of Congress.
3. Originally NAFTA superseded a pre-existing bilateral between US and Canada. It came about when Mexico approached US for a deal of its own, then Canada got worried and asked to joint to make it trilateral.
Interesting, but not unexpected. Waldman connects Oleg Deripaska and Chris Steele to the efforts of James Wolfe, Sen. Mark Warner and the entire Senate Intel Committee. As such he is now a risk; likely avoiding testimony at behest of, and with intent to shield, Senator Warner
It should also be noted that Waldman was the direct source of information within the John Solomon [@jsolomonReports ] article that outlined the FBI contacting Deripaska for help in their scheme/investigation. Waldman contacted Solomon. thehill.com/opinion/white-…
So when Waldman wanted to promote his client's (Deripaska) narrative, he was more than willing to engage and be of assistance. However, when questions about the narrative he presented are raised by congress... now he refuses to comply. Huh, funny that.
2.@TomFitton Original Page FISA application is 83 pages (w/ signature page). Look at how many text messages SSCI Director of Security James Wolfe sent Watkins immediately after he took custody of FISA application:
3. @TomFitton When Carter Page FISA application was sent to Judicial Watch and NYT [July 20, 2018] didn't you wonder why DNI sent the March 17th, 2017 *copy* of the *original* FISA application?
.@JackPosobiec It is possible because those responsible for filing charges/taking punitive action do not wish to do so. Secondly, & very helpful to their cause, they have authority to decide whether to file charges/take action. It is not complicated. Believe what you are seeing.
.@ByronYork Your article is false in claiming Ohr 302 info and FBI interview dates surfaced publicly in July. We've known about the 12 interviews since March 15th. See Page 5, Footnote #5. scribd.com/document/37398…
The FISA application was received by James Wolfe at the SSCI on March 17th, 2017. He then took pictures of the 82 page application and sent them to reporter Ali Watkins. The evidence is clear as day.
Do you think Wolfe would take pictures of fully redacted pages? Highly unlikely. So what does that mean?
Again.... everyone is missing.
