DEEP STATE IN DANGER: The Attorney General Vows to ‘Uncover’ Shady Origins of Russia-Trump Probe

posted by Hannity Staff - 5.17.19

Attorney General William Barr pledged this week to “uncover” the true origins of the DOJ’s probe into allegations of Russia-Trump collusion; saying Americans will eventually know “exactly what happened” during the 2016 presidential election.

“In his first interview since becoming attorney general, Barr spoke to ‘America’s Newsroom’ host Bill Hemmer during a visit to El Salvador for meetings with law enforcement officials. In pointed terms, he fired back at Democrats who have castigated him over his handling of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report — calling Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s charge that he lied to Congress ‘laughable’ and dismissing an attempt to hold him in contempt of Congress,” reports Fox News.

“That’s part of the usual … political circus that’s being played out. It doesn’t surprise me,” he said.

“The first step is to find out exactly what happened, and we’re trying to get our arms around that, getting all the relevant information from the various agencies and starting to talk to some of the people that have information,” Barr told Hemmer.

“I think there’s a misconception out there that we know a lot about what happened,” he said.

Barr’s comments come hours after the Attorney General met Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi face-to-face on Capitol Hill; jokingly asking the top Democrat if she “brought her handcuffs.”

“What is deadly serious about it is the attorney general of the United States of America was not telling the truth to the Congress of the United States,” Pelosi told reporters earlier this month. “That’s a crime.”

The House Judiciary Committee voted to hold the Attorney General in contempt last week after Barr refused to meet with Democrats to further discuss Robert Mueller’s “no collusion” final report.

“We will have no choice but to move quickly to hold the attorney general in contempt if he stalls or fails to negotiate in good faith,” Mr. Nadler said. “But the attorney general must make a choice. Every one of us must make the same choice. That choice is now an obligation of our office.”

“The choice is simple: We can stand up to this president in defense of the country and the Constitution we love, or we can let the moment pass us by,” he added.

PANIC AT THE DEEP STATE: Feud Erupts Between Brennan and Comey Over Who ‘Pushed’ the ‘Steele Dossier’  

posted by Hannity Staff - 5.16.19

A major dispute between senior DOJ officials erupted this week over whether former FBI director James Comey or CIA director John Brennan “pushed” the now-debunked ‘Steele Dossier’ ahead of the 2016 election.

“A high-level dispute over which senior government officials pushed the unverified Steele dossier amid efforts to surveil the Trump campaign has broken out into the open again, after it emerged that Attorney General William Barr appointed a U.S. attorney to examine the origins of the Russia investigation and determine if the FBI and DOJ’s actions were ‘lawful and appropriate,’” reports Fox News.

“Sources familiar with the records told Fox News that a late-2016 email chain indicated then-FBI Director James Comey told bureau subordinates that then-CIA Director John Brennan insisted the dossier be included in the intelligence community assessment on Russian interference, known as the ICA,” adds the article.

“Former Director Brennan, along with former [Director of National Intelligence] James Clapper, are the ones who opposed James Comey’s recommendation that the Steele Dossier be included in the intelligence report,” said one official familiar with the dispute.

Senator Rand Paul made national headlines last March when he confirmed that Brennon “insisted” on using the “unverified and fake” dossier.

“BREAKING: A high-level source tells me it was Brennan who insisted that the unverified and fake Steele dossier be included in the Intelligence Report… Brennan should be asked to testify under oath in Congress ASAP,” posted Paul.

posted by Hannity Staff - 9.18.18

President Trump ordered the federal government to declassify “key” material related to FISA warrants, DOJ text messages, and Russia intel Monday night; setting the stage for a potential showdown with the Department of Justice.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders confirmed the move, saying the Commander-in-Chief instructed the DOJ and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence to release the material “at the request of a number of committees of Congress and for reasons of transparency.”

“The documents to be declassified also include all FBI reports on interviews with Justice Department official Bruce Ohr,” writes Fox News.

The President also ordered the release of 21 pages of material related to FISA warrant applications surrounding his former campaign staffer Carter Page.
