Feds Confirm Biden Emails Are “Authentic”; ’50 Former Intel Officials’ Wrong On Russian Disinfo, by Tyler Durden

Unlike previous “blame the Russians” attempts, this latest looks like it’s only going to have a shelf life of a couple of days. From Tyler Durden at zerohedge.com:

Update (1930ET): In yet another death blow to Adam Schiff and the ’50 former senior intelligence officers’ “Russia, Russia, Russia” claims, the FBI and DOJ have told a Fox News producer that they do not believe that Hunter Biden’s laptop and its contents are part of a Russian disinformation campaign, confirming that the ‘current’ intelligence community agrees with DNI Ratcliffe’s comments yesterday.

Additionally, a Federal Law Enforcement Official also confirmed to Fox News’ Martha MacCallum that the emails are “authentic”.

All of which leaves on big gaping unanswered question (that we all know the answer to)…

FBI = Disinformation, by Raúl Ilargi Meijer

The FBI got right on the Hunter Biden hard drive. Not to examine the drive and see if crimes had been committed, but to drum up yet another bogus Russia narrative. From Raúl Ilargi Meijer at theautomaticearth.com:

USA Today Headline: “A Tabloid Got A Trove Of Data On Hunter Biden From Rudy Giuliani. Now, The FBI Is Probing A Possible Disinformation Campaign

(The FBI is examining whether the material supplied to the New York Post by Rudy Giuliani is part of a disinformation campaign by Russia.)”

Seeing that makes me think: with Comey, Strzok, Lisa Page, McCabe et al gone, who initiates and approves such “examinations”? The aforementioned were all involved in setting up the Special Counsel led by former FBI chief Robert Mueller, and that was the most embarrassing episode in the Bureau’s history. Which is saying something given J. Edgar’s penchant for dressing up in women’s clothing.

The Mueller probe was all predicated on vague and unproven Russian “disinformation”, and it fittingly ended with it too. With absolutely nothing coming out of the probe, that was based on the Steele Dossier which the protagonists knew was false even before the probe started, Mueller and his right-hand Andrew Weismann in the end had nothing left but “13 Russians” and Julian Assange to “justify” their $30 million, 2 year “effort”.

The Clocks Struck Thirteen, by James Howard Kunstler

It’s hard to quash a story without denying it’s veracity, but that’s what the Democrats and media are trying to do with the New York Post’s Hunter Biden bombshells. From James Howard Kunstler at kunstler.com:

Was it just me, or did you also notice that NBC’s Savannah Guthrie decided to play Special Prosecutor in Thursday night’s “town hall” gotcha-fest with Mr. Trump, whom they had perched on some Modernista stool-of-punishment? The hectoring interrogation started from the get-go — the “townies” distributed around the set apparently just props — while Ms. Guthrie barked over the President with various renderings of the old shyster’s retort, but do you still beat your wife?

Over on ABC, Ol’ White Joe Biden lounged comfortably in low light and cushy seating with his therapist, George Stephanopoulos, free associating on the wonders and marvels he will bring about in the Kingdom Come of his presidency. Strangely, the subject of his family’s lucrative business dealings in Ukraine, China, and Russia a few years back never came up in the confab, a therapeutic omission that seemed to amount to malpractice.

I speak of the evidence found on a laptop computer apparently belonging to R. Hunter Biden, Ol’ White Joe’s crackhead son, outlining the many services Biden & Co. rendered to bigwigs in foreign lands for millions of dollars when Pop, “the big guy,” was vice-president. The Democrats’ new Ministry of Truth played a DEFCON-3 defense on these matters when it all broke in The New York Post at midweek. Twitter labeled it “unsafe” and banned all transmission of the news. Facebook’s Communications Director Andy Stone, a former Democratic Party employee (House Majority Political Action Committee Director; Press Secretary to Sen. Barbara Boxer), likewise squashed any links to the story on FB’s social network.

FBI Stonewalls Over Hunter Biden; Refuses To Provide Congress Answers On Burisma, China, by Tyler Durden

Yet another demonstration of the FBI’s complete corruption. From Tyler Durden at zerohedge.com:

The FBI is stonewalling a congressional inquiry into Hunter Biden’s overseas business activity described in a Senate report last month which chronicles the Biden family’s international conflicts of interest, as well as potentially criminal business activity, according to The Federalist.

The Senate report detailed Hunter’s financial dealings with Ukrainian, Chinese and Russian businesses created potential “criminal financial, counterintelligence and extortion concerns,” and alarmed US officials who perceived an ethical conflict of interest and flagged potential crimes ranging from sex trafficking to bribery.

Last week, in response to the report, Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan (R) – the ranking member on the House Judiciary Committee, demanded answers from the FBI over what actions it’s taken, if any, regarding 2015 reports from the DOJ, that the owner of Ukrainian energy giant Burisma paid a $7 million bribe to government officials to shut down an investigation while Hunter sat on its board.

“The report by Chairman Johnson and Chairman Grassley shows that the FBI has been aware of some alleged misconduct for years,” Jordan wrote to FBI Director Christopher Wray.

Jordan also highlighted concerns raised within the Obama State Department regarding Biden’s lucrative board position with Burisma. He raked in upwards of $50,000 a month despite his lack of experience while his father, Joe Biden, served as the administration’s “public face” of White House policy towards the Eastern European ally.

“The report detailed widespread concern within the Obama-Biden Administration about Hunter Biden’s role on the board of Burisma Holdings, a Ukrainian company founded by Mykola Zlochevsky,” Jordan wrote. “The Chairmen noted that they had asked the FBI about its actions in response to these allegations, but have received no answer from you.” –The Federalist

Comey’s Amnesia Makes Senate Session an Unforgettable Hop, Skip & Jump to Fraud, by Ray McGovern

The coverup of the Russiagate coup continues, and if Biden is elected it will be buried. From Ray McGovern at consortiumnews.com:

If Trump loses in November the National Security State will get away with unconscionable misbehavior in the monitoring of  campaign aide Carter Page. And if he wins…

Senate Judiciary Committee hearing with former FBI Director James Comey at right, on video screen, Sept. 30, 2020.

Former FBI Director James Comey testified to Congress last Wednesday that he did not remember much about what was going on when the FBI deceived the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) Court into approving four warrants for surveillance of Trump campaign aide Carter Page.

Few outsiders are aware that those warrants covered not only Page but also anyone Page was in contact with as well as anyone Page’s contacts were in contact with — under the so-called two-hop surveillance procedure. In other words, the warrants extend coverage two hops from the target — that is, anyone Page talks to and anyone they, in turn, talk to.

At the hearing, Senate Judiciary Committee Chair Lindsay Graham reviewed the facts (most of them confirmed by the Department of Justice inspector general) showing that none of the four FISA warrants were warranted.

Graham gave a chronological rundown of the evidence that Comey and his “folks” either knew, or should have known, that by signing fraudulent FISA warrant applications they were perpetrating a fraud on the court.

The “evidence” used by Comey and his “folks” to “justify” warrants included Page’s contacts with Russian officials (CIA had already told the FBI those contacts had been approved) and the phony as a three-dollar bill “Steele dossier” paid for by the Democrats.

What Rings Comey’s Bell: The Former FBI Director’s Casual Testimony Confirms the Worst About His Tenure, by Jonathan Turley

Now Comey is saying he didn’t see, hear, or speak any evil or corruption while he was head of the FBI, although it’s becoming clearer by the day that the FBI launched a coup against President Trump. From Jonathan Turley at jonathanturley.org:

In his long-awaited testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, former FBI Director James Comey’s testimony proved as casual as his appearance in an open shirt from his home office. Comey was hammered with embarrassing findings of errors under his watch in the handling of the Russian investigation, including the reliance on information that FBI agents warned might be Russian disinformation supplied by a Russian agent. After years of investigation, the FBI was unable to show that a single Trump official conspired or colluded with the Russians. Instead, investigations found extensive errors, irregular and criminal conduct, and statements of intense bias by key FBI figures. Yet, Comey proceeded to give what amounted to a series of shrugs in either denying any recollection of such information or deflecting responsibility to others.

Comey was asked about an intelligence report suggesting that Hillary Clinton personally approved an effort “to stir up a scandal against U.S. Presidential candidate Donald Trump by tying him to Putin and the Russians’ hacking of the Democratic National Committee.” The report was reportedly sufficiently serious to be included in a briefing of President Barack Obama. However, when asked about his knowledge, Comey again shrugged and said it “didn’t ring a bell.” That’s it.

The fact is that the allegation against Clinton (like the one against Trump that launched the Russian investigation) was unverified and could be legitimately questioned. There is a fair question on why the FBI went all in on one allegation and not the other. When asked “did you have a duty to look at any allegations regarding Clinton in Russia?” Comey simply replied “I don’t know what you mean.”

Yet, the more interesting question is what exactly does “ring the bell” of James Comey. Recent disclosures have added to the very serious allegations of misconduct in the handling of the Russian investigation. Highly critical reports by the Inspector General and the secret FISA court detailed critical omissions and outright false information used as the basis for the investigation. This includes conduct leading to the firing of the top FBI officials and agents involved in the investigation and a recent criminal plea by the key FBI agent in charge of the FISA applications. Comey however seemed locked in some Kübler-Ross loop, stuck between denial and transference.

Corrupt Comey conveniently claims no memory of parts of FBI’s Trump-Russia ‘collusion’ probe, by Greg Jarrett

James Comey has either caught Joe Biden’s disease and his memory is gone, or is was a totally incompetent FBI director, or he’s conveniently claiming loss of memory to avoid having to give answers that would put him in legal jeopardy. You know the right answer. From Greg Jarrett at foxnews.com:

His bout of amnesia and/or dementia is nothing but a cleverly contrived act to avoid taking responsibility for his malign acts

At a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing Wednesday on the FBI’s Trump-Russia “collusion” investigation and the bureau’s egregious abuse of the surveillance process under Comey’s reign, he claimed to know nothing about everything.

Like a broken record, Comey responded to questions with the same pat answers: “Not that I recall … I don’t know … I don’t remember … I never knew … that doesn’t ring a bell.”

If he were playing dodgeball, Comey would have won.

To hear Comey tell it, he was an empty suit at the helm of one of the most important investigations in modern American history, examining whether Donald Trump conspired with Russians to steal the 2016 election. We now know it was all a devious fiction. But that didn’t stop Comey’s FBI from targeting Trump with the damning lie.

Along the way, Comey himself signed off on a series of spy warrants involving the Trump campaign, relying on uncorroborated and inaccurate evidence presented to a secret federal court under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA).

The judges on the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court were deceived and the court was defrauded by up to 17 mistakes, misrepresentations, and glaring omissions that were later identified by Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz. Horowitz’s report shows there were more than 50 omissions, and exculpatory evidence was deliberately withheld.

The FBI and special counsel’s horrible, terrible, miserable week, by Kevin R. Brock

The walls are closing in on the coup plotters behind Russiagate, the Michael Flynn affair, and the FISA court warrant misrepresentations. From Kevin R. Block at thehill.com:

The FBI and special counsel's horrible, terrible, miserable week
© Greg Nash

Albert Einstein had his theory of relativity validated by the atomic bomb. Like it or not, Donald Trump’s widely ridiculed “witch hunt” theory was bolstered by a couple more explosive revelations released last week that once again prove paranoia doesn’t mean they’re not actually out to get you.

The first blast revealed that the FBI investigated the primary source of the Steele dossier years ago for being a Russian spy. Amazingly, we’re just learning this now. The second detonation comes from an FBI agent deeply embedded in the Crossfire Hurricane and special counsel investigations who lambasted the exercise as an effort to “get Trump” rather than follow actual evidence.

Let’s start with the spy-crafted dossier. If it wasn’t clear before, it’s now nearly inescapable that those at the top of the FBI were not “never Trumpers,” they were “sever Trumpers.” The more their actions come into corroborated focus, the more apparent was their desire to decapitate the new administration.

The front office’s Stop Trump tone was set early on by former agent Peter Strzok’s infamous text to former FBI counsel Lisa Page on Aug. 15, 2016 — “I’m afraid we can’t take that risk” — regarding Trump’s chances of being elected president.

Next declassification could flip Russia collusion script, point to effort to hurt Trump, by John Solomon

What if the Russians wanted Hillary to win in 2016? From John Solomon at justthenews.com:

Former NSC official says some evidence cut against claim Russia was helping Trump.

The Trump administration is preparing one of its biggest declassifications yet in the Russia case, a super-secret document that could flip the collusion theory on its head four years after the FBI first started its investigation.

Multiple officials familiar with the planned declassification, which could happen as early as this week, told Just the News that the new evidence will raise the specter that Russian President Vladimir Putin was actually trying to hurt President Trump, not help his election in 2016, as the Obama administration claimed.

The new evidence would complement a revelation last week that the primary source for the Christopher Steele anti-Trump dossier was known to the U.S. government to be tied to Russia intelligence, raising the possibility that the Russians were undercutting the GOP nominee.

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., hinted at the big revelation in a Sunday appearance on the Fox News show “Sunday Futures with Maria Bartiromo.”

“Everything Russia-Trump was looked at. You had $25 million, 60 agents. You had subpoenas, you had people’s lives turned upside down,” Graham said. “The question is, ‘Did they look at Russia coming after Trump?’ ”

Referring to last week’s revelation, Graham added: “We’ve got a Russian spy on the payroll of the Democratic Party putting together a document that details the FBI was not reliable.”

The possibility that the FBI and CIA had reason to suspect Russia was trying to hurt Trump and help rival Hillary Clinton first emerged in a Just the News article last month that revealed a House Intelligence Committee secret report accused the U.S Intelligence Community Assessment of ignoring credible evidence that the Russians tried to help Clinton in 2016.

“Massive Corruption By The Obama-Biden Administration”: Flynn Family Responds To FBI Text Message Revelations, by Tyler Durden

If Russiagate wasn’t a political vendetta and attempted coup, what was it? From Tyler Durden at zerohedge.com:

Update (1745ET): The Flynn family has responded to the recent revelations that he was part of an effort to “get TRUMP,” according to FBI text messages.

“Abusive, intentional lawless actions committed against the Republic, the President of the United States Donald J. Trujmp and his NSA Director and our brother, General Mike Flynn, by a vile cabal of thugs in the FBI, DOJ and Special Counsel’s office threatened the national security of our country and all Americans,” the statement begins.

“Evidence of massive corruption by the Obama-Biden administration pour from the pages of documents just released…

“The criminal conduct and malfeasance of those entrusted with the power to enforce our laws trampled the rights and lives of Gen Flynn, our entire family, and all Americans who cherish our Constitution.”
