A bombshell report has been released by the New York Times, and it provides shocking evidence that FBI Director James Comey was fully aware Obama’s administration was rigging the presidential election in favor of failed Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
The report reveals Comey reopened the investigation into Clinton’s use of a private email server solely to uphold the credibility of the F.B.I., out of fear that Obama’s administration was not supporting an independent, thorough investigation and he would be criticized for the unethical bias.
He anticipated Obama’s Attorney General Loretta Lynch would intentionally close the investigation into Clinton’s email server before any true crimes were able to be revealed, based on an email obtained by Russian hackers and then intercepted by the F.B.I..
Based on the assumption that Clinton would win the election and Russian hackers would release the email, Comey reopened the investigation to cover their tracks.
But there was another investigation in the works that Comey did not reveal to the public.
The F.B.I. was also investigating then presidential nominee Donald Trump, but followed typical protocol of secrecy — likely due to the lack of political motivation hindering his investigation.
The investigation into Trump didn’t posses the potential public backlash that was plaguing Clinton’s investigation.
Throughout the campaign, AG Lynch was anything but subtle in her cohorts with the Clintons.
She was caught privately meeting with Bill Clinton during the election, leading to raised suspicions that she was too familiar with the Clinton clan, and would not support an independent, unbiased investigation.
Bill Clinton swore all he did was discuss grandkids as he met privately with then AG Loretta Lynch on a small plane on a Phoenix tarmac prior to the election, while Hillary was still under ‘investigation’ by the FBI prior to the election…yeah…right!
New evidence proves Loretta Lynch colluded with the Clintons to keep the Justice Department from investigating Hillary ‘too closely’!
According to the Times, another document, hacked by the Russians, reveals collusion between the former Attorney General and the Democrats to ensure Hillary Clinton’s victory in the general election.
AG Lynch encouraged FBI Director Comey to refer to Clinton’s investigation as a “matter,” not an “investigation” and even revised a public statement from the Justice Department about the investigation to remove the word, “criminal.”
Mr. Comey’s defenders regard this as one of the untold stories of the Clinton investigation, one they say helps explain his decision-making.”
If a local news reporter in Phoenix had not reported that Loretta Lynch and Bill Clinton had met on that tarmac, she might have succeeded in sheltering Hillary even more effectively than she had.
The Times’ report further proves that Lynch and Obama’s administration were tampering with the election to do everything in their power to ensure Clinton’s win, and even Obama’s own F.B.I was onto them.
But even with all the clear tampering, Obama and Lynch still couldn’t beat Trump.
It’s time someone went to jail for this.
Here’s a list of some of those who fall into the “no evidence” column
Breitbart – MAY 20, 2017
With headlines swirling and lawmakers meeting behind closed doors, it’s not difficult to conclude there is trouble in the Trump White House.
But a deeper dive reveals that lots of people who would not consider themselves Trump supporters admit there is no evidence of any wrongdoing by the Trump campaign regarding alleged collusion with Russians.
Here’s a list of some of those who fall into the “no evidence” column:
- Sen. Diane Feinstein (D-CA)
“The last time we spoke, Senator, I asked you if you had actually seen evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians, and you said to me — and I’m quoting you now — you said, ‘not at this time.’ Has anything changed since we spoke last?” asked CNN’s Wolf Blitzer
“Well, not—no, it hasn’t,” Feinstein said.
“But I just want to be precise, Senator. In all of the—you’ve had access from the intelligence committee, from the Judiciary committee, all of the access you’ve had to very sensitive information, so far you’ve not seen any evidence of collusion, is that right?” Blitzer pressed.
“Well, evidence that would establish that there’s collusion. There are all kinds of rumors around. There are newspaper stories, but that’s not necessarily evidence,” Feinstein admitted.
- Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA)
“But just to be clear, there has been no actual evidence yet,” Sam Stein of the Huffington Post asked.
“No, it has not been,” Waters said.
- Former CIA Director John Brennan
“What I have found appalling is the number of leaks that have taken place over the last several months,” Brennan said at the SALT conference in Las Vegas, the annual gathering of hedge-fund managers and other financiers. “This needs to be stopped.”
“The damage that was done is what was leaked in the aftermath, what was put in the media. The real damage to national security is the leaks,” Brennan said.
Brennan said. “These individuals who still stay within the government and are leaking this stuff to the press need to be brought to task.”
- Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper
“Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper told MSNBC’S Andrea Mitchell on Friday that there could be evidence of collusion between Russia and President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign,” CNN reported.
But, “There was no evidence that rose to that level, at that time, that found its way in to the intelligence community assessment, which we had pretty high confidence in,” Clapper said of collusion between Trump campaign aides and Russians, referring also to the U.S. intelligence assessment that Russia tried to influence the presidential election in favor of Trump.
“That’s not to say there wasn’t evidence, but not that met that threshold,” Clapper said.
Reuters ran a story on Thursday with the headline “Exclusive: Trump campaign had at least 18 undisclosed contacts with Russians sources”
But buried in the story is the real headline:
“In January, the Trump White House initially denied any contacts with Russian officials during the 2016 campaign. The White House and advisers to the campaign have since confirmed four meetings between Kislyak and Trump advisers during that time. The people who described the contacts to Reuters said they had seen no evidence of wrongdoing or collusion between the campaign and Russia in the communications reviewed so far.”
Goal is to force Trump to resign
Paul Joseph Watson | Infowars.com – MAY 19, 2017
An attempt to force Donald Trump to resign from office is being led by GOP establishment insiders in concert with the Democratic-aligned media, according to a top Republican.
Author, journalist and Middle East Forum fellow David P. Goldman reveals that the unnamed ranking Republican told an off the record gathering this week that, “A “coup” attempt was in progress against President Donald Trump, with collusion between the largely Democratic media and Trump’s numerous enemies in the Republican Party.”
“The object of the coup, the Republican leader added, was not impeachment, but the recruitment of a critical mass of Republican senators and congressmen to the claim that Trump was “unfit” for office and to force his resignation,” writes Goldman.
Although it is unlikely that Trump will be impeached and virtually impossible that he will ever resign from office, the goal is to keep his administration mired in scandal so that Trump cannot advance his policy agenda.
This fits with our previous reporting, which exposed how individuals within Trump’s inner circle are already preparing to become the face of the effort to remove him from office.
The “coup” attempt is being organized by the usual suspects – John McCain, Lindsey Graham and Paul Ryan.
Former Rep. Dennis Kucinich, a Democrat, also revealed the deep state is “trying to destroy the Trump presidency.”
“Our first allegiance is to our country,” he said on Fox News. “Our country itself is under attack from within.”
And the “politicization” of intentionally non-partisan agencies, which began under the Obama administration, has lead to the constant deluge of leaks to the press who sequentially spin the story to further damage President Trump.
Former CIA analyst and retired U.S. Army Reserve Lieutenant Colonel Tony Shaffer echoed similar views during an appearance on Fox Business with Lou Dobbs.
“This is truly deep state,” said Shaffer. “This is something being done by those in the deep state to upset everything that’s going on and try to undermine the president in every breath.”
Even CNN’s Dana Bash admitted the deep state is trying to torpedo Trump, particularly with the release of the “Comey memos” being used to claim Trump tried to “obstruct justice” during the FBI investigation into former national security advisor Michael Flynn.
The New York Times claimed that in one memo from February (despite never having read it), Trump told former FBI Director James Comey, “I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go, he is a good guy. I hope you can let this go.”
However, Comey later told the Senate on May 3 that he was never asked to stop an investigation due to “political reasons,” which indicates either the New York Times report is false or the former FBI director just committed perjury.
During the Senate testimony, Comey confirmed to Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii) that in theory, the Attorney General or senior officials at the Department of Justice could stop a FBI investigation.
The former FBI director added it would “be a big deal to tell the FBI to stop doing something that – without an appropriate purpose.”
“But I’m talking about a situation where we were told to stop something for a political reason, that would be a very big deal. It’s not happened in my experience.”
The deep state has also been promoting the idea of a coup against Trump in globalist-oriented magazines like The Atlantic and The New Yorker.
In a March 28 article from The Atlantic, Norm Ornstein claimed the “continuity of government” (COG) mechanism developed during the Cold War could be used to overthrow the Trump administration.
“…If the election had been stolen, Pence’s place as president would be no more legitimate than that of Trump,” he wrote. “After Pence — Paul Ryan, the speaker, followed by Orrin Hatch, the president pro tem, followed by Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.”
“If voters’ collective desires were subverted by foreign interference and a party’s collusion, none would have a legitimate claim — especially since the control of the Senate, at least, would have been affected by the Russian role.”
Ornstein wants Congress to establish procedures for a “special election” for president and vice president to ensure the “continuity of government” amid “cyberwarfare” by “Russian hackers,” which would actually guarantee the continuity of the deep state and its control over government.
While some on the left continue to insist that the “deep state” itself is a “conspiracy theory,” the notion of a coup d’état is being seriously discussed by the likes of CNBC’s Jake Novak, who writes that this week’s Russia-Trump intelligence “leak” was part of the scheme, and that the leaks were possibly coming from “someone close to President Trump himself is essentially acting like a mole in the White House.”

Republicans in Congress are increasingly dispirited over the chaos surrounding Donald Trump, with several saying the nonstop revelations are imperiling their legislative agenda and the top Senate Republican signaling he’d go his own way on some of the president’s top priorities.
Those concerns mounted after news broke Tuesday evening that Trump asked James Comey to close the FBI’s investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn. Comey wrote a memo about the conversation immediately after it occurred in February. Democrats said Trump’s request amounted to obstruction of justice while Republicans demanded information from the administration.
Earlier Tuesday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said he’s prepared to block Trump on many of his proposed budget cuts and won’t support major tax cuts that add to the deficit. Nor would he commit to building Trump’s border wall.
The normally taciturn Republican leader let slip some of his frustration with the president, telling Bloomberg News in an interview that he really wants one thing from Trump: “Less drama.”
In previous months, Republican lawmakers were more likely to defend Trump — even after he and his administration made comments and policy changes that generated intense criticism. That began to change after Trump fired Comey on May 9 and continued this week with a report that Trump revealed highly classified intelligence to senior Russian officials, followed by news of his request to drop the Flynn probe.
After a protracted period of dormancy, financial markets started to give signs of reacting to developments in Washington. Concerns over the turmoil engulfing Trump’s administration weighed on risk appetite, boosting the yen and gold and sending stocks lower.
‘Makes It Tougher’
“Whenever there’s drama going on over there, it makes it tougher for the agenda here,” Republican Senator Jeff Flake of Arizona said Tuesday, before Comey’s memo was reported. “But I suppose it’s going to continue, so I’ll have to get used to it.”
Another Republican senator said he wasn’t aware of anyone directly pressing Trump to change his ways or expressing concerns about the president’s reported intelligence disclosure to Russia. The most GOP lawmakers can do is to try to focus on passing legislation, though the senator, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said those efforts are weakened with every new Trump revelation.
Representative Mike Conaway of Texas, who is heading the House Intelligence Committee’s investigation of Russian interference in last year’s election, said Tuesday night that members of Congress have to “compartmentalize” amid White House distractions.
Asked how Republicans will still get their work done, Conaway said, “Well, you get up every morning, put your shoes on and go to work.”
John Thune of South Dakota, the No. 3 Senate Republican, said that the chamber has been largely able to do its work despite the repeated eruptions.
“These are daily — well not daily but they seem like daily — distractions. And you just have to manage around them,” he said. “We’re proceeding according to plan, but less drama on the other end of Pennsylvania Avenue would be a good thing.”
Even before the Comey memo was reported, McConnell laid out an agenda that explicitly rejected more and more of Trump’s major priorities. A tax overhaul, McConnell said, must be revenue-neutral. The president has said it would “OK” if a tax overhaul added to the deficit in the short run to stimulate the economy.
McConnell offered an unusually strong rebuff of a budget request coming from a president of his own party. Trump’s priorities “aren’t necessarily ours,” he said, adding the president’s plan to slash the State Department is “highly unlikely.” Trump is expected to unveil his detailed budget request on May 23.
McConnell also said he’s told the administration he wouldn’t support a big infrastructure stimulus package that adds to the deficit either. The forthcoming infrastructure plan must be a “credible, paid-for” proposal, he said. And he wouldn’t commit to fighting for Trump’s wall on the U.S.-Mexican border.
“We’ll probably have arguments about what’s a wall and what’s security in the course of the discussion about the spending for next year,” he said.
Rank and File
On the House side, Republican leaders including Speaker Paul Ryan of Wisconsin have been noticeably quiet about Trump, offering routine defenses in the wake of each controversy.
But some rank-and-file Republican members are starting to express impatience with Trump. After the Comey memo revelation, Representative Carlos Curbelo of Florida said that he wants Congress to create a select committee that would solely focused on Trump and the Russia allegations.
“The administration also needs to be held accountable,” he told reporters Tuesday evening.
Representative Barbara Comstock of Virginia, whose district is home to large numbers of FBI and CIA employees, said Trump’s disclosure of classified intelligence to the Russians is “highly troubling.”
“We need to have immediate classified briefings on what occurred at this meeting so that Congress can at least know as much as Russian leaders,” she said in a statement.
Representative Steve Knight of California also said in a statement that he’s joining “many of my colleagues in supporting the assignment of a special prosecutor to take over the ongoing FBI investigation” into Russia’s activities and any possible Trump links.
Senate Intelligence Chairman Richard Burr of North Carolina sounded a note of frustration on Tuesday, saying he was waiting for someone who participated in the Oval Office meeting with the Russian envoys to brief him on the details.
“I hopefully can cover this in a telephone conversation versus a transcript, but I’ll go that route if I need to,” said Burr, who is leading the panel’s investigation of Russia interference in the U.S. election and alleged ties between Trump associates and Russia.
Senator Ben Sasse, a Nebraska Republican who leads the judiciary panel’s oversight subcommittee, said in an interview with conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt released Wednesday that he wants all of Comey’s memos and any tapes that exist.
Flake said the Trump administration’s shifting explanations for each controversy, including the reported intelligence disclosure to Russia, increase lawmakers’ concerns.
“We’ve only heard a couple of iterations from the White House so far,” Flake said Tuesday, sounding exasperated. “But we’ll wait for another hour or so, I guess.”
Senator Angus King, a Maine independent, said on MSNBC on Wednesday there are many facts still to gather before any impeachment talk would be appropriate, but the past week’s developments are “disturbing.” While Democrats shouldn’t use Trump’s approach to the FBI merely as a pretense to seek to reverse the 2016 election outcome, lawmakers also can’t turn a blind eye to obstruction of justice if that’s what Trump turns out to have done, King said.
Republican Senator Bob Corker of Tennessee, whom Trump at one point considered naming secretary of state, was unusually sharp in his scolding of the Trump White House.
“Obviously they’re in a downward spiral right now and they’ve got to figure out a way to come to grips with all that’s happened,” he told reporters Monday night. “The chaos that is being created by the lack of discipline is creating an environment that I think makes a worrisome environment.”
Some Republicans continue to stand by their president.
Senator Roy Blunt, a Missouri Republican, said Trump is still positioned to bring needed change to Washington.
“When people elected the president, they knew they were electing somebody different because they wanted things to change in Washington and I think he has unique potential to bring change to the system and voters knew what they were doing.”
But asked if there is a different mood among Republicans this week, he responded, “Well, it’s only Tuesday.” Asked at what point would he say enough is enough, he said, “You’re coming up with some hypothetical thing in the future where I would say this?”
For Democrats, Trump’s travails offer new hope for congressional elections in 2018. Even though they face a daunting electoral map, Trump’s unpopularity could put some long-held Republican districts in their reach. Democrats fault Republicans for failing to criticize Trump.
“What we need is courage and patriotism from the Republicans, and what we cannot have is mumbling in the direction of being concerned or troubled or wanting more information,” Senator Brian Schatz of Hawaii said. “What we need is true patriotism from Republicans and that comes in actions and not words.”
Evidence shows Seth Rich was leaker
PJMedia.com – MAY 16, 2017
Fox News is now reporting, based on multiple investigative sources, that Seth Rich — the Democratic National Committee staffer who was gunned down in Northwest D.C. near his home last July — leaked thousands of DNC emails to WikiLeaks in the months beforehand.
According to Fox News’ Malia Zimmerman, these new revelations are consistent with the findings of Rod Wheeler, a former D.C. homicide detective and Fox News contributor. Wheeler told Fox 5 DC that there is evidence on Rich’s laptop that confirms he was emailing WikiLeaks prior to his death.
Wheeler’s law enforcement sources also allegedly claimed they were told to “stand down” on investigating the crime.
Rich’s family, however, has denounced Wheeler’s claims in a statement, calling them “unsubstantiated.”
Via Fox News:
A federal investigator who reviewed an FBI forensic report — generated within 96 hours after DNC staffer Seth Rich’s murder — detailing the contents Rich’s computer said he made contact with WikiLeaks through Gavin MacFadyen, a now-deceased American investigative reporter, documentary filmmaker, and director of WikiLeaks who was living in London at the time.
“I have seen and read the emails between Seth Rich and WikiLeaks,” the federal investigator told Fox News, confirming the MacFadyen connection. He said the emails are in possession of the FBI, while the stalled case is in the hands of the Washington Police Department.
The revelation is consistent with the findings of Rod Wheeler, a former DC homicide detective and Fox News contributor and whose private investigation firm was hired by a third party on behalf of Rich’s family to probe the case. Rich was shot from behind in the wee hours, but was not robbed.
“My investigation up to this point shows there was some degree of email exchange between Seth Rich and WikiLeaks,” Wheeler said. “I do believe that the answers to who murdered Seth Rich sits on his computer on a shelf at the DC police or FBI headquarters.”
The federal investigator, who requested anonymity, said 44,053 emails and 17,761 attachments between Democratic National Committee leaders, spanning from January 2015 through late May 2016, were transferred from Rich to MacFadyen before May 21.
Rich left Lou’s City Bar, a couple miles from his home, at about 1:15 a.m. on July 10. His immediate activities after leaving the bar remain a mystery:
He walked home, calling several people along the way. He called his father, Joel Rich, who he missed because he had gone to sleep. He talked with a fraternity brother and his girlfriend, Kelsey Mulka.
Around 4:17 a.m., Rich was about a block from his home when Mulka, still on the phone with him, heard voices in the background. Rich reassured her that he was steps away from being at his front door and hung up.
Two minutes later, Rich was shot twice. Police were on the scene within three minutes. Rich sustained bruising on his hands and face. He remained conscious, but died at a nearby hospital less than two hours later.
Police detectives will not say whether Rich provided them with any clues about the identity of his attackers or their motivation, Wheeler said. However, Wheeler believes Rich could have provided information prior to his death of who was responsible for carrying out his murder.
Grainy video tape from a security camera outside a grocery mart shows two assailants shooting Rich twice in his back. They did not take “his wallet, cell phone, keys, watch or necklace worth about $2,000.”
On July 22, just twelve days after Rich was murdered, WikiLeaks published emails that prompted the resignation of Debbie Wasserman Schultz from her role as DNC chairperson on the eve of the Democratic National Convention. WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has insisted all along that the DNC emails were not hacked by the Russians, and he has implied that Rich was indeed the source of the emails. On August 9, WikiLeaks offered a $20,000 reward for information on the murdered DNC staffer.
Assange told a Dutch reporter last August:
[O]ur sources take risks, and they, they become concerned to see things occurring like that, whistle-blowers go to significant efforts to get us material and often very significant risks. As a 27-year-old, works for the DNC, was shot in the back, murdered just a few weeks ago for unknown reasons as he was walking down the street in Washington.
Fox News reports that law enforcement sources “close to the investigation” say the police have “no suspects and no substantial leads as to who the killer or killers may be”:
Metropolitan Police, including the police chief, have refused to discuss the case, despite requests from Fox News dating back 10 months.
The department released a statement on the case saying it remains an active investigation and that detectives are working with Rich’s family.
“If there are any individuals who feel they have information, we urge them to call us at (202) 727-9099 or text us at 50411,” read the statement. “The department is offering a reward of up to $25,000 for information on this case that leads to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible.”
The FBI’s national office declined to comment, but sources said the bureau provided cyber expertise to examine Rich’s computer.
Wheeler believes powerful forces are preventing the case from a thorough investigation.
“My investigation shows someone within the D.C. government, Democratic National Committee or Clinton team is blocking the murder investigation from going forward,” Wheeler told Fox News. “That is unfortunate. Seth Rich’s murder is unsolved as a result of that.”
Rich’s family released a statement blasting Rod Wheeler. The statement says he was not authorized to speak to the press about the investigation, and characterizes his findings as “unsubstantiated claims”:
“As we’ve seen through the past year of unsubstantiated claims, we see no facts, we have seen no evidence, we have been approached with no emails and only learned about this when contacted by the press,” the spokesperson said. “Even if tomorrow, an email was found, it is not a high enough bar of evidence to prove interactions as emails can be altered and we’ve seen that those interested in pushing conspiracies will stop at nothing to do so.
“We are a family who is committed to facts, not fake evidence that surfaces every few months to fill the voice and strict law enforcement and the general public from finding Seth’s murderers,” the statement continued. “The services of the private investigator who spoke to press was offered to the Rich family and paid for by a third party, and contractually was barred from speaking to press or anyone outside of law enforcement or the family unless explicitly authorized by the family.”

Judge Andrew Napolitano, Fox News senior judicial analyst, went on FOX Business Network on Monday to discuss allegations Senator Rand Paul and another senator were under surveillance by the Obama administration.
Napolitano also dropped a bomb on the Obama administration spying on the US Supreme Court.
Judge Napolitano: Justice Scalia told me that he often thought the court was being surveilled. And he told me that probably four or five years ago…If they had to unmask Senator Paul’s name to reveal a conversation he was having with a foreign agent and the foreign agent was hostile to the United States they can do that. That’s not what he’s talking about. They’re talking about unmasking him when he’s having a conversation with his campaign manager when he’s running in the Republican primary.
During the discussion Judge Napolitano also said Barack Obama could be subpoenaed to testify if he viewed the unmasked intelligence.
