Can somebody explain to me why the Senate Intelligence Committee’s investigation of the Russia-U.S. Election thing starts out with any credibility whatsoever ???


Republican Chairman, Senator Richard Burr says that unlike their House counterparts, Democratic Vice-Chairman Mark Warner and he are “partners”…..   


Now isn't that just WONDERFUL ! ! !


Did anybody listened to the outlandish stuff this clown Mark Warner spouted out at the Chairman and Vice-Chairman’s joint press conference  ---  Warner said that he was worried because he has seen “some reports” that over 1000 Russian hackers set up “botnets” in key counties in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania,  where they set up malware on computer servers to redirect computer traffic to fake news and other stories unfavorable to Hillary Clinton  [of course, he added that he didn’t want to re-litigate the results 2017 election].



According to an article in the Daily Caller  ---  The top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee said Wednesday that he has seen reports which make him concerned that Russian interference targeted Hillary Clinton in key swing states….   ‘As a former tech guy, what really concerns me is at least some reports, and we have to get to the bottom of this, that there were upwards of 1,000 paid internet trolls working out of a facility in Russia, in effect taking over a series of computers, which are then called a ‘botnet,’ Virginia Sen. Mark Warner said at a press conference. These botnets place malware on computer servers and are able to redirect traffic….   The Senate Democrat went on to say that these botnets would ‘generate news down to specific areas,’ and that he has received reports, which he needs to verify, that these areas targeted were the key swing states of Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania….”  (See  “Top Dem Senator Is Concerned Russia Made Hillary Lose Key States”  by Alex Pfeiffer, 3/29/17,  Daily Caller/ Politics   [http://dailycaller.com/2017/03/29/top-dem-senator-is-concerned-russia-made-hillary-lose-key-states/]).

That particular concern by Warner was also detailed in the "Paper of Record,"  the New York Times in its coverage of he Burr-Warner presser.....


WARNING TO ALL REPUBLICANS


This guy Warner is a mendacious Democrat bastard, who is getting his plays from the same playbook as Chuck Schumer,  Nancy Pelosi,  Maxine Waters,  and all the rest of the disgruntled and rabidly anti-Trump Democrats in Washington.   

Almost as important as all that, this Democrat senator looks like he came out of central casting for the part of some kind of deranged predator targeting teenagers partying in the woods.

I'll explain to you.

Burr was just re-elected to a six year term. And Burr was not on the transition team that Obama had under surveillance. The Senate Republicans are united in the quest to impeach Trump. Burr will do that. You see Gale, the moneyed classes in DC dont include Trump and his skinny son in law.

Nobody needs to investigate Trumps collusion with the Russians to hack the DNC & Hillary. The evidence is sitting in Comeys office. Just like the WH tapes were in Watergate. The move by Trump to get rid of Comey for unmasking his boys picked up on the FISA tapes didn't fool anyone.

This is how politics works Gale. You might want to consider taking a night class in Poli Sci at Xavarian.

Well Gale looks like 8:28 is a regular fucking know it all. A Jackoff of all trades. The type of person who calls in CNN during his break at the sludge plant to point out spelling errors on the trawler at bottom of screen.

RESPONSE: THE "ABOUT A FEW THINGS THAT YOU WROTE" EDITION

TO: "ANONYMOUS SAID... AT 8:28 AM"

A FEW PEOPLE SEEM TO THINK MORE OR LESS WHAT YOU'RE DESCRIBING MIGHT COME TO BE.....

However, FYI:

a) Evidence might be in Comey's office desk related to this Trump-Russia stuff, but Comey never had the "Watergate Tapes" in his possession, except maybe as a momento from the Secret FBI Museum; Comey was playing outside with the other kids when ALL the Watergate stuff happened.....;

b) According to the "Daily Caller," Comey was all over this Russia stuff last summer and wanted to go public with all of it; he was told to keep it under wraps by Obama when Comey submitted an Op Ed piece for the NY Times to the White House approval --- at the time the Trump wiretaps were all in place and cranking-out something that impressed Comey & company.....: and

c) About 25 years ago I "teached" some folks at night at Xaverian about civics and it included how the Federales did business, including checks & balances, along with some of the Watergate stuff.....

Now we know that Trumps transition was under surveillance by Obama WH.

The problem with Nunes has been the optics. Nunes just seems unsure of himself. He has a hesitation to everything he says. Hearings are cancelled and then he hides out. If people dont feel you can handle it then the perception becomes the reality. Warner & Burr seem like they can handle an investigation.

Flynn wants immunity. We still have 30 days till the first 100 days in office. Iran Contra went down in Reagans 7th year in office. Oliver North and Poindexter got immunity from Congress but Feds tried & convicted them anyway. Those convictions were reversed on appeal.
But Iran Contra never showed anyone in Reagan administration getting a personal gain. This is different.

RESPONSE: THE "NOT ONLY THE FBI, THE INTELLIGENCE SERVICES & OTHER PARTS OF THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION KNEW ABOUT THE TRUMP SURVEILLANCE" EDITION

TO: "ANONYMOUS SAID... AT 9:24 PM"

IT SHOULD BE OBVIOUS BY NOW THAT THE HILLARY CLINTON CAMPAIGN WAS "IN" ON THE FRUITS OF THE SURVEILLANCE DIRECTED AT THE TRUMP TEAM

EVELYN FARKAS --- DR. EVELYN N. FARKAS --- DR. EVELYN N. FARKAS, FORMER OBAMA ADMINISTRATION DEPUTY ASSISTANT SECRETARY OF DEFENSE FOR RUSSIA/UKRAINE & EURASIA --- DR. EVELYN N. FARKAS, FORMER OBAMA ADMINISTRATION DEPUTY ASSISTANT SECRETARY OF DEFENSE FOR RUSSIA/UKRAINE & EURASIA --AND-- HILLARY CLINTON CAMPAIGN ADVISER WITH MULTIPLE CONTACTS IN THE INTELLIGENCE COMMUNITY

According to a very brief report that appeared on the "Real Clear Politics" internet site a little while ago --- "Former Obama administration official Evelyn Farkas talked to CNBC to elaborate controversial comments she made in an appearance on Morning Joe about surveillance on the Trump for president campaign. Farkas' remarks, originally made in early March, are making waves this week as accusations of Russian influence on the 2016 U.S. presidential election are being investigated.... 'We were having a transition of power from the Obama administration to the Trump administration,' Farkas said Thursday. 'If indeed there was an investigation ongoing, if indeed there was information the Obama administration had about Russian interference and possible American involvement, I wanted to make sure Congress knew about it.'... 'I was afraid of a cover-up,' she added...." (See "Evelyn Farkas: I Was Concerned About Russian Meddling "'over-Up' By Trump After The Election" by Ian Schwartz, 3/30/17, Real Clear Politics [http://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2017/03/30/evelyn_farkas_i_was_concerned_about_russian_meddling_cover-up_by_trump_after_the_election.html]).

According to Fox News: "The former Obama administration official who admitted earlier this month that her former colleagues tried to secretly gather intelligence on President Trump’s team was no low-level staffer.... Evelyn Farkas was once considered the most senior policy officer for Russia within the Pentagon, and she is now apparently defending the leaks that have been coming out of the Trump White House.... In an appearance on MSNBC earlier this month, Farkas told Mika Brezinski about her role in the efforts to collect intelligence on Trump’s team, and their alleged ties with Russia, in the Obama adminstration’s final days.... 'I was urging my former colleagues and, frankly speaking, the people on the Hill... get as much information as you can,' Farkas said, adding that her big fear was 'if [Trump staffers] found out how we knew what we knew about their ... the Trump staff dealing with Russians – that they would try to compromise those sources and methods, meaning we no longer have access to that intelligence.'... At the end of the [Brezinski] interview, Farkas said, 'we have good intelligence on Russia... that's why you have the leaking. People are worried.'... Farkas notably served as deputy assistant secretary of defense for Russia/Ukraine/Eurasia under President Obama, and parted ways with the White House in 2015 after some five years... Farkas would go on to serve as a foreign policy advisor for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton...." (See "Who is Obama administration official who spilled beans?" by Alex Diaz, 3/29/17, Fox News/ Politics [http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2017/03/29/who-is-obama-administration-official-who-spilled-beans.html]).

The timeline shows that what Dr Farkas knew about the Trump surveillance came long after she had left government, but it was well within the time she was using her skills and contacts on behalf of Hillary Clinton.

Farkas statements confirmed the Obama administration surveillance. A modern day Butterfield.

I watched the Senate hearing. Burr and Warner seem like asshole buddies, if I may be so bold.

UPDATE & BACKFILL: THE "FARKAS SPILLED EVEN MORE OF THE BEANS" EDITION

DR. EVELYN FARKAS DOES AN >>> INTERVIEW <<< WITH THE DAILY CALLER --- DOESN'T THAT SEEM A LITTLE OUT OF PLACE --- HMMMMMM ! ! !

ALSO, IS IT JUST ME, OR DOES THIS ONE LOOK LIKE CARRIE MATHISON ON ONE OF HER BAD DAYS ???


According to the folks at the Daily Caller --- "A former Obama administration official is responding in an exclusive interview with The Daily Caller to recent claims that she helped disseminate intelligence about Donald Trump and his advisers throughout the federal government.... Evelyn Farkas, who served as Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Russia, Ukraine and Eurasia until 2015, says she had no hand in circulating actual intelligence, contrary to claims made this week by conservative media outlets, including Sean Hannity.... 'I had no intelligence whatsoever, I wasn’t in government anymore and didn’t have access to any,' Farkas said in an interview with TheDC on Thursday...." (See "EXCLUSIVE: Ex-Obama Official Responds To Allegations She Spread Trump Intel..." by Chuck Ross [with video link], 3/30/17, The Daily Caller/ Politics [http://dailycaller.com/2017/03/30/exclusive-ex-obama-official-responds-to-allegations-she-spread-trump-intel-video/]).

But there's still more.....

The Ross-Daily Caller article fills in this background with Farkas' quotes (but not from THEIR interview): ".... In her 'Morning Joe' segment discussing the Times report, Farkas said that she too grew 'very worried' after the election that intelligence gathered on Trump advisers would be squirreled away after Trump took office.... 'I was urging my former colleagues, and frankly speaking the people on the Hill, it was more actually aimed at telling the Hill people, get as much information as you can, get as much intelligence as you can, before President Obama leaves the administration,' Farkas said in the interview.... In another interview on MSNBC later in the day, Farkas described a 'frantic desire' within the Obama administration to preserve the intelligence...."

But here is where Farkas spills even more of the beans..... In the Daily Caller interview she says that she had no info, but completely describes how she contacted various people, Democrats and Republicans, in the congress about what they needed to get..... According to DC, it was in her own words, as follows: ".... 'I was getting the feeling that the people on the Hill weren’t briefed up, mainly because they weren’t bringing it up in conversations with me, and they were not concerned with what the Russians had done,' she says.... 'You guys need to be asking the White House to bring you all the information they have,' she says she told congressional staffers...."

And the Ross-Daily Caller piece had this about Farkas' contacts with the Obama White House and it's described in her own words like this: ".... 'I could tell that there was something there because all I had to do was look at the faces of Obama people when the topic came up, and they wouldn’t talk about it so it was clear that it was super sensitive.'...”

I have two questions: 1) Why did so many people talk to Dr. Evelyn Farkas in secret back then ? >>> AND <<< 2) WHY IS DR. EVELYN FARKAS TALKING TO SO MANY PEOPLE (like The Daily Caller) ABOUT IT IN THE WIDE-OPEN AND NOTORIOUS NOW ("now" being for at least a month or so) ???

TO: "ANONYMOUS SAID... AT 5:03 PM"

I DID WHAT I COULD FOR YUH TO READ & TALK ABOUT JQ WITH A NEW POST ABOUT HIM ABOVE --- BUT THE LID IS BLOWING OFF THIS PRESIDENTIAL SURVEILLANCE STUFF

FOX NEWS REPORTS: SURVEILLANCE (WIRETAPPING) OF TRUMP AND HIS TEAM WAS GOING ON FOR A LOT LONGER TIME THAN MOST PEOPLE HAD BEEN SAYING; AND A VERY WELL-KNOWN, HIGH-UP INTELLIGENCE OFFICIAL, NOT FROM THE FBI, IS PROBABLY GUILTY OF SOME REAL SERIOUS SH*T.....

MEANWHILE, THE NEW YORK TIMES HAS COME OUT WITH A "SURVEILLANCE... TIMELINE" THAT BEGINS ON MARCH 4TH, 2017 --- TALK ABOUT "FAKE NEWS" !!! THAT'S A VERY FAKE TIMELINE..... AT LEAST IT ENDED WITH TODAY'S FORMAL PRESS BRIEFING REASSERTION OF PRESIDENT TRUMP'S CHARGES AGAINST FORMER PRESIDENT OBAMA

Here's the news from Fox News --- "The U.S. intelligence official who 'unmasked,' or exposed, the names of multiple private citizens affiliated with the Trump team is someone 'very well known, very high up, very senior in the intelligence world,' a source told Fox News on Friday.... Intelligence and House sources with direct knowledge of the disclosure of classified names told Fox News that House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., now knows who is responsible -- and that person is not in the FBI.... 'The main issue in this case, is not only the unmasking of these names of private citizens, but the spreading of these names for political purposes that have nothing to do with national security or an investigation into Russia’s interference in the U.S. election,' a congressional source close to the investigation told Fox News.... 'Unmasking is not unprecedented, but unmasking for political purposes ... specifically of Trump transition team members ... is highly suspect and questionable,' an intelligence source told Fox News. 'Opposition by some in the intelligence agencies who were very connected to the Obama and Clinton teams was strong. After Trump was elected, they decided they were going to ruin his presidency by picking them off one by one.'..." (See "Intelligence official who 'unmasked' Trump associates is 'very high up,' source says" by Malia Zimmerman & Adam Housley, 3/31/17, Fox News/ National Security [http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2017/03/31/intelligence-official-who-unmasked-trump-associates-is-very-high-up-source-says.html]). In addition, Fox Reporter Adam Housley, who co-authored the material cited immediately above also Tweeted this: "... Our sources: This surveillance that led to the unmasking of private names of American citizens started before Trump was the GOP nominee.... 1:08 PM - 31 Mar 2017"

Meanwhile, the NY Times has produced a real piece of "FAKE NEWS"; AND IT'S WORTHY OF THE HISTORIC NAZI PROPAGANDIST JOSEF GOEBBELS..... The Times came out with a "surveillance... timeline" that begins with the Trump Tweets on March the 4th; and then, the main focus of the NY Times' inquiry largely swings to Devin Nunes (See "Confused by the Trump Surveillance Drama? Here’s a Timeline" by Emmarte Huetteman & Matthew Rosenberg, 3/31/17, NY Times/ Politics [https://www.nytimes.com/2017/03/31/us/politics/trump-wiretapping-claim-timeline.html?_r=0]).

At least the last entry in the Times piece cited immediately above, the entry for March 31st, indicates that ".... Sean Spicer, the White House press secretary, reasserted Mr. Trump’s surveillance allegations, saying that members of Mr. Obama’s administration had done 'very, very bad things.'... 'The question is why? Who else did it? Was it ordered? By whom?'” Mr. Spicer said...."

MORE UPDATE & MORE BACKFILL: THE “SPICER MAKES IT ALL A LITTLE SPICIER” EDITION

TRUMP’S PRESS GUY, SEAN SPICER, TELLS THE PRESS MORE AND MORE MEDIA REPORTS ARE SHOWING THAT THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION SPIED ON THE TRUMP TEAM

SPICER MENTIONED A >>> LIST <<< OF CLASSIFIED MATERIALS THAT HAD BEEN PREPARED BY THE OBAMA WHITE HOUSE IN EARLY JANUARY, AND WHICH WAS “HAND DELIVERED” TO THE SENATE INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE

During Friday’s presser at the White House, Press Secretary Sean Spicer noted that two recent Media reports have indicated that there is more substance In President Donald Trump’s charges against the Obama Administration made early in March --- referring to Tweets and statements that Obama wiretapped Trump’s team and machinery at Trump Tower (See “Sean Spicer: More and More Reports Show Obama Administration Spied on Trump” by Kristina Wong, 3/31/17, Breitbart News/ Big Government [http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2017/03/31/sean-spicer-more-and-more-reports-show-obama-administration-spied-on-trumpspicer-more-and-more-reports-show-obama-administration-spied-on-trump/]).

Spicer first gave some details about the Evelyn Farkas disclosures, saying this: “[The Farkas interview] raised serious concerns on whether or not there was an organized and widespread effort by the Obama administration to use and leak highly sensitive intelligence information for political purposes….”

Then Spicer talked about another NBC report on Friday that indicated Obama administration officials were so concerned about what would happen to key classified documents related to a probe into Russian interference in the elections once Trump took office that they created a LIST of the document serial numbers to give to senior members of the Senate Intelligence Committee. That report came from a former Obama official, who told NBC News that the list was created in early January and that Obama official said that he “hand-carried it” to committee members. The same official said that the purpose was to make it “harder to bury” the information, to “share it with those on the Hill who could lawfully see the documents,” and to make sure it could reside in an intelligence committee safe, “not just at Langley” — the CIA’s headquarters.

UPDATE: THE "SUSAN RICE" EDITION

NOW YOU CAN CALL SUSAN RICE ONE OF "ALL OF THE PRESIDENT'S MEN"

PRESIDENT OBAMA'S NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISER SPECIFICALLY SOUGHT OUT THE >>> NAMES <<< OF TRUMP'S PEEPS INCIDENTALLY DISCOVERED IN OTHER SURVEILLANCE

NEWSMAX PICKED-UP ON A BLOOMBERG NEWS REPORT ABOUT A TWIST IN THE STORY GETTING THE WHOLE TRUMP SURVEILLANCE MESS DEEP INSIDE THE PRIOR WHITE HOUSE STAFF -- AND -- MUCH CLOSER TO PRESIDENT OBAMA PERSONALLY


According to Newsmax --- "White House lawyers last month discovered that the former national security adviser Susan Rice requested the identities of U.S. persons in raw intelligence reports on dozens of occasions that connect to the Donald Trump transition and campaign, according to U.S. officials familiar with the matter.... The pattern of Rice's requests was discovered in a National Security Council review of the government's policy on 'unmasking' the identities of individuals in the U.S. who are not targets of electronic eavesdropping, but whose communications are collected incidentally. Normally those names are redacted from summaries of monitored conversations and appear in reports as something like 'U.S. Person One.'... The National Security Council's senior director for intelligence, Ezra Cohen-Watnick, was conducting the review, according to two U.S. officials who spoke with Bloomberg View on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss it publicly. In February Cohen-Watnick discovered Rice's multiple requests to unmask U.S. persons in intelligence reports that related to Trump transition activities. He brought this to the attention of the White House General Counsel's office, who reviewed more of Rice's requests and instructed him to end his own research into the unmasking policy...."

The Newsmax article by Bloomberg's Eli Lake continued with the following details: "....
The intelligence reports were summaries of monitored conversations — primarily between foreign officials discussing the Trump transition, but also in some cases direct contact between members of the Trump team and monitored foreign officials. One U.S. official familiar with the reports said they contained valuable political information on the Trump transition such as whom the Trump team was meeting, the views of Trump associates on foreign policy matters and plans for the incoming administration.... [Susan] Rice did not respond to an email seeking comment on Monday morning. Her role in requesting the identities of Trump transition officials adds an important element to the dueling investigations surrounding the Trump White House since the president's inauguration...."
