bobkat,

Maybe Gowdy is flummixed with the swamp, we all are... Rank and file @ FBI are fine, CHECK, OK, we got that..
Mueller is on the hot spot and will no doubt have some explaining to do later... Why fire him now and look bad?? Let him squirm...
Do you know of any collusion between him and the ruskies?? Is collusion a crime?
If you answered yes then you and hillary have some explaining to do along along with the other top end liars, cheats, and defrauds...

Namely the few at the top of the FBI management plus one disgruntled brit agent who hates Trump and are certainly culpable...
You do not seem to have a problem with them trying to overthrow the will of the American people last November... That figures...
Now, that's collusion, bring it on...

The wide time line overview sees that from karl marx' times on down through the failed hillary clinton hyjinx that there are 10s of millions of people who have simply disappeared and or have not had their vote counted... We're not sure about Vince Foster...
But you have to admit that millions of USA legal voters were about to have their vote for POTUS overturned by collusionists...

Aren't you glad that the tail end of the communist era is over?? The pogrom on Amerika is over...
Why do you remain stuck on the cremation of our culture??

Marx is dead, finally, so why not long live our Mighty King??
Try a jaunt through Beckley Tempe and tell me that believers should be wiped out in lieu of your crummy earth gods!!

Some free for all you got yourself mixed up in...

In 2013, Russian intelligence operatives attempted to recruit Page, and one described him as enthusiastic about business opportunities in Russia but an "idiot".[2][20] News accounts in 2017 indicated that because of these ties to Russia, Page had been the subject of a FISA warrant in 2014, at least two years earlier than was indicated in the stories concerning his role in the 2016 Presidential campaign of Donald Trump.[21][22]....

Carter Page was thus previously known to people in the "intelligence communities" - of the U.S. AND Russia.

At least one important Russian official recognized him to be an 'idiot.'

But, there is no evidence or signs that he is or was a 'player' or accomplished anything in the way of espionage or, profited through any seedy or illegal activities. There is no indication that he was SUCCESSFULLY recruited by the Russians.

He thus was a very USEFUL IDIOT to the Russians, Steele, Fusion GPS and the DNC (Hillary) when it came time to fabricate the 'Trump dossier.'
In part all they had to do was in effect go to Central Casting to make the short film.

With the Warrant for surveillance on Carter Page in hand, Obama and the anti-Trump team could now, by association and through primary and secondary associations listen-in on lots of Trump's people - and probably Trump himself. I would expect that they accessed archived electronic files of ALL of Page's texts, emails and conversations scooped by the NSA.

Comey, Rosenstein, Strzok and all the others knew that the Trump Dossier was uncorroborated. Yet, they still used it to get the Warrants. They had to know what having the Warrant would allow them to do: Go on a fishing expedition to find SOMETHING, ANYTHING that would make Trump look bad or, use the information gathered to catch Trump or one of his associates in a "lie" that would end up in an indictment for a "process crime." In other words, SABOTAGE TRUMP. They had the means, motive and opportunity to violate Federal Law (Commit the crime).

This is why the release of The Memo is being called 'just the beginning.' It will be important to find out what was in the papers that were given to the FISA court. It will be important to find out or confirm who was actually surveilled and also find out who leaked info and unmasked the names of people caught up in the surveillance.
Why do so many officials FEAR and kowtow to the Marshfield Airport gang?

What is the source of their power? Does it involve some kind of unseemly enterprise? A government entity?

Of course that may prove to be harder to do now

from...FBI Mysteriously “Loses” Five Months of Text Messages Between Peter Strzok and Lisa Page… The Last Refuge
Posted on January 21, 201 by sundance
https://theconservativetreehouse.com/20 ... nt-page-3/
According to information relayed to Senator Ron Johnson, the period of time the FBI has “lost” is from December 14th, 2016 to May 17th, 2017, the exact day that Special Counsel Robert Mueller was assigned to lead the Russia collusion probe.

As CTH has previously outlined the same “small group” inside the DOJ and FBI, during the 2015/2016 operation to assist Hillary Clinton and conduct political surveillance upon candidate Donald Trump, were transferred to the Mueller probe by Chief FBI Legal Counsel James Baker. FBI Director Christopher Wray relieved James Baker of all duties last month.

The attempts by the former high level FBI officials to avoid transparency by “losing” the text messages is a clear sign of consciousness of guilt; and points to the efforts they undertook in 2017 to cover their tracks.
So much to keep track of.

more evidence of corruption and bias from the FBI, they should have notified Trump of Page's status as soon as Trump hired him, the FBI is corrupt as Hoover's FBI and as corrupt as the FBI was in Boston in the 1970's

That's crazy. Trump's people hired a guy under investigation by several intelligence agencies. Something about background checks, checking references, verifying employment history...basic stuff they couldn't manage.

Did you never hire anybody?

Something else for you conservatives/republicans to be proud of:
Arthur Jones — an outspoken Holocaust denier, activist anti-Semite and white supremacist — is poised to become the Republican nominee for an Illinois congressional seat representing parts of Chicago and nearby suburbs.

“Well first of all, I’m running for Congress not the chancellor of Germany. All right. To me the Holocaust is what I said it is: It’s an international extortion racket,” Jones told the Chicago Sun-Times.

Indeed, Jones’ website for his latest congressional run includes a section titled “The ‘Holocaust Racket’” where he calls the genocide carried out by the German Nazi regime and collaborators in other nations “the biggest blackest lie in history.”

Trump absolutely should have been notified, really why withhold that information, one phone call, Mr Trump so and so is under surveillance for this or that, would have taken a minute. Also Trump is in charge of the FBI, And all law enforcement.

What do you have against informing Trump?

I agree. There is absolutely no excuse for keeping the president in the dark on any matter. The correct protocol may have been to go through the FBI / DOJ liason, Lisa Page. But of course we now know she very well could have been preoccupied with other issues.

Then, on a related matter, there's this...
“So, the FBI people — I’m going to tell you are ticked, and they’re going to be saying, I guarantee it, you think you could push us off this because you can try to intimidate the director, you’d better think again, Mr. President,” he continued. “You’ve been around for 13 months; we’ve been around since 1908. I know how this game is going to be played, and we’re going to win.”
What would possess this guy, Mudd, to start making thinly veiled, unsubstantiated, threats like this ? Panic - Its never a pretty sight.

Page

The letter, dated Aug. 25, 2013, was sent by Page to an academic press during a dispute over edits to an unpublished manuscript he had submitted for publication, according to an editor who worked with Page.
“Over the past half year, I have had the privilege to serve as an informal advisor to the staff of the Kremlin in preparation for their Presidency of the G-20 Summit next month, where energy issues will be a prominent point on the agenda,” the letter reads.

trump has until Friday to formally declassify the memo. Impossible to predict what he'll do.

Congress has to pass a spending bill by midnight Thursday, February 8, or the government will shut down again.

No immigration deal in sight.

and in Syria:
The latest upsurge in airstrikes, hospital bombings and civilian deaths in the rebel-held Idlib province in northern Syria has elicited little in the way of protest or pushback from the Trump administration. Its silence contrasts sharply with last week’s furious US condemnation of Iran over its handling of sporadic domestic unrest.

The comparison is instructive. In Syria’s civil war, the US has largely ceded a free hand to Russia’s president, Vladimir Putin. And Donald Trump seems to have abandoned attempts to force Bashar al-Assad, Syria’s dictator and Putin’s ally, to step down. Trump’s principal focus is not Damascus, it’s Tehran.

The result is something approaching impunity for killers. To take one example, 11 medical facilities in Idlib, Hama and eastern Ghouta were targeted by Russian and Syrian government airstrikes and shelling over the new year period, according to the Union of Medical Care and Relief Organisations.

But Trump’s attention is elsewhere. His passionate, outspoken hostility to Iran jars badly with his passivity and disinterest over the plight of Syrians dying and injured in the war. His controversial efforts to advance ties with Putin, and his wooing of the Saudis and Israelis, Iran’s sworn enemies, fit his top priority of isolating Tehran. The Syrian child victims Trump vowed to defend last April have been forgotten.

Just the opposite; perhaps the bull still has life. donny will be claiming the halo any time now...

I said a long time ago the Dems should give donny his wall in exchange for daca. And if donny promised a safe zone in syria, he should do it. He promised it.

Also said a long time ago that Afghanistan is wasted effort; Donny thinks we can win there, just like the Russians thought they could win. Stupid.

The Monmouth University Poll was sponsored and conducted by the Monmouth University Polling Institute from January 28 to 30, 2018 with a national random sample of 806 adults age 18 and older, in English. This includes 401 contacted by a live interviewer on a landline telephone and 405 contacted by a live interviewer on a cell phone. Telephone numbers were selected through random digit dialing and landline respondents were selected with a modified Troldahl-Carter youngest adult household screen. Monmouth is responsible for all aspects of the survey design, data weighting and analysis. Final sample is weighted for region, age, education, gender and race based on US Census information. Data collection support provided by Braun Research (field) and SSI (RDD sample). For results based on this sample, one can say with 95% confidence that the error attributable to sampling has a maximum margin of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points (unadjusted for sample design). Sampling error can be larger for sub-groups (see table below). In addition to sampling error, one should bear in mind that question wording and practical difficulties in conducting surveys can introduce error or bias into the findings of opinion polls.

Standing up to turkey in support of our allies using troops already on the ground there is part of the cost of destroying Isis. And there is no end in sight to the conflict between turkey and the Kurds. The Kurds, with our money and advice, did the world a favor when they torched Isis, and you just can't ignore that.

A bigger share is the displayed eight years of weakness, equivocation and apologies by the dum dum heads!!

Instead of reflexively kicking Obama, why don't you read up on how and why isis formed. You'll see more than a few references to Bush, and Bremer and Wolfy and lots more conservatives...
And assigning blame has been part of the political discourse in the United States and beyond: The decision by President George W. Bush and allies to marginalize Iraq’s political and military elite angered and disenfranchised some who formed the heart of the Islamic State. More recently, President Obama and his allies have been criticized as not taking seriously enough the Islamic State’s rise.

Keep digging on Obama, he could care less, and Bush would do the whole thing again, so there you are...
