ICYMI: Attorney General Barr Assembles Team to Investigate FBI, DOJ Actions Taken in Trump-Russia Investigation
Attorney General William Barr has formed a team to investigate counterintelligence decisions made by Justice Department and FBI officials, including actions taken during the probe of the Donald Trump campaign in 2016. Barr is looking into allegations that the investigation into Trump and possible collusion with Russia was bogus from the jump by anti-Trump bias in the FBI and Justice Department, looking for an ‘insurance policy’ should Trump prevail.
Bloomberg reports Barr told a House panel this week; “I am reviewing the conduct of the investigation and trying to get my arms around all the aspects of the counterintelligence investigation that was conducted during the summer of 2016.”
Republican Representative Robert Aderholt of Alabama asked Barr if the Justice Department is investigating “how it came to be that your agency used a salacious and unverified dossier as a predicate for FISA order on a U.S. citizen?” The reference is the “Steele Dossier” put together as opposition research against Trump, with funding from the DNC and Hillary Clinton campaign. They allege officials improperly relied on that dossier to obtain a secret warrant to spy on former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page and was the beginning of the “witch hunt” and that Mueller took over after Trump fired FBI Director James Comey.
Comey, however, rejected that assertion last year when he testified before Congress. He said the investigation was opened the officials learned that another Trump campaign aide, George Papaopoulous “had with an individual in London about stolen emails that the Russians had that would be harmful to Hillary Clinton.”
Mueller concluded his investigation last month and Barr summarized the contents in a March 24 letter, revealing that the special counsel did not “establish” that associates or members of the Trump campaign coordinated or conspired with the Russian government.
SPEAKING OF CORRUPTION: Click for more details on Obama Netflix deal~
ICYMI: Barack and Michelle Obama signed a $50 million deal to produce feature length movies and series for Netflix. If you’re asking yourself what does a former community organizer and failed U.S. president and his wife know about producing movies you’re not alone. As President Trump continues to open our eyes to the economic potential that our country holds and the improved standard of living that is possible for all Americans you’d think that the Obama’s would be avoided like the plague.
But, for Washington’s political elites and their corporate sponsors it’s not about you. It hasn’t been about you or your family for more than a century.
For the reason, harken back to this portion of President Trump’s inaugural address:
Today’s ceremony, however, has very special meaning because today we are not merely transferring power from one administration to another or from one party to another – but we are transferring power from Washington DC and giving it back to you, the people.
For too long a small group in our nation’s capital has reaped the rewards of government while the people have borne the cost
Washington flourished but the people did not share in its wealth. Politicians prospered but the jobs left and the factories closed.
The establishment protected itself but not the citizens of our country.
Their victories have not been your victories. Their triumphs have not been your triumphs. And while they celebrated in our nation’s capital, there has been little to celebrate for struggling families all across our land.
This should tell you everything you need to know why Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos is willing to dole out $50MM and couch it with this reason:
“We are incredibly proud they have chosen to make Netflix the home for their formidable storytelling abilities.”
That is hard to argue with when you realize Netflix’s role in the Trump resistance movement. In retrospect, the Obama’s managed to seduce America with their lies and misrepresentations. And, somehow despite a disastrous first term they managed to get re-elected. That is a gift the Deep State, and the international corporate cabal that they exist to serve, cherish in those they choose to present to us to become elected “leaders.”
Now Sarandos is banking on the Obama’s to lead the #resistance to President Trump’s “Americans First,” from a Netflix office suite. Controlling the media narrative is essential to maintaining the Deep State’s efficacy.
While the CIA, FBI, and DOJ conspire to remove President Trump from office, the Obama’s are tasked with helping Americans accept that it is all for the best.
Netflix was a likely landing spot for the Obama’s in light of the Sarandos’ prior financing of Hussein’s 2012 campaign. Sarandos and his wife Nicole Avent had bundled close to $600,000 dollars for that effort. Couple this with Avent’s father’s $450,000 in bundled campaign contributions and the picture starts becoming clear.
In Washington’s world of quid pro quo where money talks and bullshit walks, Sarandos’ wife, Nicole Avent, was rewarded with the ambassadorship to the Bahamas.
