Michael Cohen Cancels SSCI Testimony…


The Michael Cohen testimony to the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (SSCI), headed by Chairman Richard Burr and Vice-Chair Mark Warner [A Sketchy Couple], has been cancelled citing the medical condition of Mr. Cohen:

WASHINGTON – Michael Cohen has postponed his third scheduled congressional testimony, his lawyer said Monday, casting further doubt on the prospect of the former fixer for President Trump returning to Capitol Hill before reporting to prison next month.

“The Senate Select Committee on Intelligence has accepted Mr. Cohen’s request for postponement of tomorrow’s hearing due to post-surgery medical needs,” his lawyer, Lanny Davis, said in a statement on Monday. Details of Cohen’s surgery were not immediately clear.

The Senate Intelligence Committee subpoenaed Cohen in January, according to Davis. He was requested to appear on Feb. 12, a source familiar with the matter said. “A future date will be announced by the Committee,” Davis added in his statement. (read more)

This is the third time Cohen’s testimony to congress has been cancelled and re-scheduled. The HPSCI (Adam Schiff) announced last week that Cohen’s closed-door testimony was postponed until later this month; and that followed Cohen pulling out of a previously scheduled open hearing before the House Oversight and Reform Committee (Elijah Cummings).

Following the prior cancellations Michael Cohen’s political handler, Lanny Davis, told MSNBC that Cohen “expects to appear on the 28th of February” to a closed session in front of the HPSCI (Chairman Schiff), and would “probably” testify in public before the House Oversight Committee sometime in late February. Cohen is scheduled to report to federal prison on March 6th.

According to prior communication, as relayed by Representative Jim Jordan, Cohen’s apolitical lawyer, Guy Petrillo, said Mr. Cohen would not be able to discuss anything concerning the investigation of special counsel Robert Mueller.  [Mueller continues to be the shield] Therefore it would appear the Cummings committee intent has always been to script an impeachment or obstruction narrative -against the President- without Cohen able to answer specific questions.

It is very likely Cohen’s cooperation with congress was part of the reason why the start of his prison sentence was deferred from December 2018 until March 6th, 2019. With that in mind, Chairman Cummings and Chairman Schiff previously let the cat out of the bag when they responded to Cohen and informed him they would not accept his refusal to comply:

“Nevertheless, when our Committees began discussions with Mr. Cohen’s attorney, not appearing before Congress was never an option. […] We expect Mr. Cohen to appear before both Committees, and we remain engaged with his counsel about his upcoming appearances.”  [Link to Oversight]

Obviously there was some pre-planning to exploit Cohen’s appearance before the congressional session even began.  The sequencing of the democrat plan seems to remain intact (Cohen, then Mueller).  However, the timing of their strategy seems to have been upended.

If AG William Barr gets a full senate confirmation vote before the end of this week, the best laid plans of the democrats might be further disrupted….

Another Inspector General Investigation Outlines FBI Corruption – Another DOJ “Declined Prosecution”


The Office of Inspector General (OIG) completes another investigation of an FBI Supervisory Special Agent finding unlawful and unethical conduct. Unfortunately, despite the findings, the DOJ again declines prosecution.

Worth noting: Robert Mueller and Andrew Weissmann prosecuted Michael Cohen for fraudulent mortgage documents; the exact same activity the DOJ has declined prosecution for against this FBI Supervisory Special Agent…. Two-tiered justice.

If it was the intention of FBI Director Christopher Wray and/or AAG Matt Whitaker to eliminate corrupt behavior within the leadership ranks of the DOJ/FBI; and if it was their intention to rebuild public confidence, this would not be the approach:

A year ago FBI Director Christopher Wray stated he was immediately instructing all levels of FBI leadership to initiate additional training.  A year ago the same OIG delivered the following summary of investigative finding within the FBI:

Top Military Diplomat from Venezuela Breaks With Maduro and Supports Guaido…


Venezuela dictator Nicolas Maduro has broken-off diplomatic relations with the U.S. and demanded all attache’s to return home.  However the top Venezuela military attache within the U.S. has now backed President Juan Guaido as the legitimate president and will remain in the U.S.

(Via Miami Herald) The military attaché at the Venezuelan Embassy in Washington, Col. José Luis Silva, broke with the Nicolás Maduro regime Saturday and urged other armed forces members to recognize Juan Guaidó as the legitimate interim president of the South American nation.

“As the Venezuelan defense attaché in the United States, I do not recognize Mr. Nicolás Maduro as president of Venezuela,” Silva told el Nuevo Herald in a telephone interview from Washington, D.C.

“My message to all armed forces members, to everyone who carries a gun, is to please let’s not attack the people. We are also part of the people, and we’ve had enough of supporting a government that has betrayed the most basic principles and sold itself to other countries,” he added.

Silva, like all other Venezuelan diplomatic mission staffers in the United States, was ordered to return home after Maduro announced he was breaking diplomatic relations with Washington because it had recognized Guaidó as the legitimate president of Venezuela.  (read more)

Something Different Within The Bruce Ohr Testimony…


While reading a great article by Mollie Hemmingway at The Federalist, something stands out that might lend a cautious amount of optimism toward ongoing ‘spygate’ investigative inquiries and accountability.  There are two distinct differences in the Bruce Ohr testimony as compared to all others released or revealed so far.

The known list of witnesses questioned by the joint House Judiciary and Oversight committees includes: James Comey, Andrew McCabe, James Baker, Lisa Page, Bill Priestap, Peter Strzok, and Bruce Ohr.

Until the release of the Ohr transcript all prior reports and leaks of witness testimony have been from the FBI side of ‘spygate’. Bruce Ohr is the first witness from the Main Justice (DOJ) side of the issue.

Within the released witness transcripts, lawyers from the FBI were interceding in the testimony and instructing witness not to answer questions; and/or blocking statements from the witness to the questioners.  This pattern exists in Comey, McCabe, Baker, Page, Priestap and Strzok statements.  However, there is a stark difference, a much more fulsome set of answers, obvious in the testimony from Bruce Ohr.  Example:

[…]  Rep. John Ratcliffe, R-Texas, asked specifically about what the FBI had been told before their first FISA application. He said, “So, again, so the record is clear, what the Department of Justice and the FBI was aware of prior to the first FISA application was your relationship with Christopher Steele and Glenn Simpson, your wife’s relationship with Christopher Steele and Glenn Simpson, Mr. Steele’s bias against Donald Trump, your wife’s compensation for work for Glenn Simpson and Fusion GPS, correct?”

Ohr conferred with his lawyer but said, “Right,” and went on to list the things he told the FBI, including “At some point, and I don’t remember exactly when, I don’t think it was the first conversation, I told them that Chris Steele was desperate that Donald Trump not get elected. So those are all the facts that I provided to the FBI.”  (read more)

By all appearances, the Bruce Ohr testimony was far more direct and open.  As a result the transcript provides substantially more weight to deconstruct the fraudulent narrative found amid claims and leaks from the FBI side of witnesses questioned. [See Here and See Here]

Question: Could it be that the absence of FBI lawyers, focused on FBI stakeholder interests, led to a more truthful end result from the Ohr testimony?

If so… could that not indicate a stronger likelihood the epicenter of the illicit “spygate” origination motive and intents lies factually in the FBI and not in Main Justice.

In Lisa Page’s transcript (as leaked) she outlined the conflict and schism between the FBI operation in 2016/2017 and across the street at the DOJ.

[…]  According to Page, the ongoing dispute with the DOJ ran from “February/March-ish of 2016” to June of 2016. Page also noted one other critical factor in the investigation: “the FBI cannot execute a search warrant without approval from the Justice Department.” (more)

Following this line of possibility – one could infer that Main Justice priority (Lynch and Yates) was the exoneration/protection of Hillary Clinton; however, the FBI side of the overall effort (Comey and more specifically McCabe) was prioritized around the removal of candidate Trump (via ‘spygate’ writ large).

In the aftermath of the corrupt enterprise, and as the house of tenuous cards begins to collapse, the exoneration of Clinton is the lesser risk; and the discoveries of how far out of bounds the FBI and Intelligence Community traveled becomes the bigger risk.

If Andrew McCabe (and the FBI Team) were indeed the architect and primary control official in the targeting of Donald Trump, it would stand to reason the FBI lawyers would have a different set of priorities to defend the corrupted institution.

In addition to the substance within the testimony, perhaps the absence of lawyers protecting FBI interests is why Bruce Ohr’s testimony is so damaging….

New York Times Becomes Really A Puppet of the Deep State?


This entire affair of desperately trying to paint Trump in league with Putin to defeat Hillary is beyond any comprehension.  Not a single left-wing press from the New York Times to CNN will ever report the truth that the release of Hillary’s emails NEVER involved altered or forged documents. They were all REAL! So this entire conspiracy they are so desperate to create against Trump is astonishing. I would agree if there was any proof that the release of the emails was a fraud or fake and they traced to Putin. To paint Trump in a conspiracy for releasing emails that exposed the truth behind Hillary should warrant us sending a thank you card to Putin if he was ever actually involved.

I cannot imagine how unethical wand intentionally misleading the New York Times actions were by reporting their latest questionable piece with a bold headline: F.B.I. Opened Inquiry Into Whether Trump Was Secretly Working on Behalf of Russia.” They claimed that after Trump fired FBI Director James Comey, the feds began investigating whether the President was an intelligence threat. This simply says that some people in the FBI tried to use their power to investigate and were most likely politically motivated. They did not claim Trump was such an agent, only that they investigated to see if he was. This suspicion of an anti-Trump political member of the FBI in the Deep State emerged after Trump complained about Comey to Russian diplomats and then told NBC’s Lester Holt that he had the “Russia thing” in mind when he axed the director. Even the Russian Dossiers on Trump ended up being funded by Hillary to smear her opponent.

For the record, our DIRECT SOURCES from inside the FBI are really disgusted with this entire affair and believe that Comey and crew have done serious harm to the image and independence of the FBI. They used the agency for political purposes and have dragged its image into the mud. The New York Times nor CNN would ever print such a posture for they want to paint the FBI as 110% behind Comey and against Trump. They are contributing to the collapse in fair and trust in government with long-term implications to shift the financial capital from the USA to China post-2032. There is no putting confide4nce back once lost.

Our computer projected Trump would win as it did withBREXIT entirely based on economics – NOT my personal opinion so we run no ads claiming I am the man who forecast Trump because it was not a personal guess. It is simply impossible to have “manipulated”the election to change the outcomes. Even Obama publicly stated that there was no infiltration of the voting system by anyone.  The Obama Administration plainly said“We stand behind our election results, which accurately reflect the will of the American people.” So the allegation here is NOT that Russia altered the election, but tried to “influence” the election the same as the United States does everywhere from Canada to Europe. Remember Obama went to London at the request of David Cameron and the EU Parliament joining the scare tactics to influence the BREXIT vote. In fact, the Obama Administration intervened in the elections of Canada, Britain, and France.

So the theory is based upon the fact that because the emails were released, people naturally voted for Trump v Hillary. That does not explain the fact that Trump had beaten 17 career politicians. This same anti-career politician movement which is spreading worldwide also enabled Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) to beat an incumbent opponent. This is the same trend in motion and it has nothing to do with left or right no less Russia.

These claims are getting really outrageous. Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller’s office had to come out and make an EXTREMELY RARE public statement which disputed the fake news coming from BuzzFeed News that alleged President Donald Trump directed his former attorney, Michael Cohen, to lie in his testimony before Congress.

This is all leading to the total collapse in government. All of these clowns do not realize that in desperately trying to get rid of Trump, they are undermining the entire political-economic system. Perhaps now you can see just how the West will Fall by 2032. There is no going back now. It is approaching that fateful moment when it will be time to just turn out the lights.
