FISA documents reveal FBI collusion

mikenova shared this story from Boston Herald – Boston Herald.

Our media’s valiant efforts to distract us notwithstanding, information continues to seep out that underscores how badly a housecleaning is needed in Washington, D.C.

Last week saw the release of the applications used to obtain warrants from the FISA court to spy on Carter Page, an adviser to the Trump presidential campaign. Obtained by Judicial Watch, the 400-plus pages of (heavily redacted) documents support the conclusions earlier drawn by the House Intelligence Committee (and denounced by Democrats as hysteria): the FISA warrants were obtained through obfuscation and deceit.

As various commentators predicted would be proven, the bulk of the information that formed the basis for the FISA warrant applications was the “dossier” of allegations about Donald Trump’s activities in Russia. This dossier was provided to the FBI by British spy Christopher Steele. Steele was hired during the 2016 presidential campaign by opposition research firm Fusion GPS, who was paid by Hillary Clinton’s law firm Perkins Coie, who was paid by the Clinton campaign and the DNC. The allegations were scandalous and completely unverified, in violation of federal statutes and FISA court rules.

In other words, the FBI used oppo research paid for by the Democrats as justification for government spying on a political opponent and other Americans.

But there’s more. In another incredible coincidence, Fusion GPS had hired scholar and professor Nellie Ohr as a “paid Russian expert.” Nellie Ohr happens to be married to Bruce Ohr, deputy attorney general in the Justice Department. Bruce Ohr is alleged to have passed his wife’s anti-Trump research to the FBI. He was demoted for failing to disclose not only his wife’s employment with Fusion GPS, but also his own meetings with Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson.

The FISA court was never told any of that. They were never supposed to know. None of us was ever supposed to know.

When thousands of DNC emails were leaked to the public through Julian Assange’s organization WikiLeaks, we learned that Hillary Clinton had abused the primary process, nearly bankrupted the DNC and effectively stole the nomination from Bernie Sanders. We also learned the press played favorites with Clinton, getting her approval before running stories and forwarding debate questions to Clinton in advance. (The official line is Russians hacked the DNC computers and gave the emails to WikiLeaks. Assange and former U.S. and U.K. intelligence officials vehemently deny this, and maintain it was an inside “leak,” not a hack. The DNC refused to turn over their servers to the FBI for inspection.)

And then there is Hillary Clinton’s misuse of a personal email server to handle classified State Department information. We now know that then-FBI director James Comey decided not to prosecute Clinton before the investigation was even concluded. We also know that FBI attorney Peter Strzok rewrote Comey’s initial report to change Comey’s description of Clinton’s conduct from “grossly negligent” — which was a violation of the applicable federal statute — to “extremely careless.”

This is the same Peter Strzok who expressed his loathing for Donald Trump in many of the tens of thousands of texts he exchanged with his lover and fellow FBI attorney Lisa Page. Strzok infamously assured Page that they had an “insurance policy” and that they “would stop” Trump from becoming president. At a congressional hearing two weeks ago, Strzok arrogantly insisted that his bias did not affect his job performance.

He must think we’re all idiots.

But then, we were never supposed to know any of this.

Hillary Clinton was supposed to win. No one would know the FBI “investigation” into her violations of federal statutes was a foregone conclusion that would exonerate her. No one would know that members of the FBI and the DOJ were using their government powers to attack and discredit the man who wasn’t “supposed” to win, but did.

Trump’s unorthodox presidency has been a great gift. It has exposed the corruption in our government, and the betrayal of the American public by so much of the press.

Valpo man charged with child porn after turning himself in when phone locks up with “FBI” warning | Crime and Courts

VALPARAISO — A 22-year-old Valparaiso man is charged with possessing child pornography after turning himself in. His phone locked up with a warning purporting to be from the FBI after he attempted to download a pornographic video, police said.

Joseph Hanvey, of the 2000 block of Calumet Avenue, told police that as he attempted to download the pornographic video involving a child or children at 2 a.m. Wednesday, a message came on his phone stating the video and phone were monitored by the FBI, police said.

Hanvey said his phone then shut down and he was unable to turn it back on. He said he drove around the city for the next two hours looking for a police officer to talk to before showing up at the station.

He admitted to viewing several images of child pornography and saved several to his phone, police said.

Police said they recognized the “FBI” disclaimer as a common computer virus rather than an official notice from the FBI. The virus typically causes an electronic device to lock up until the user makes some sort of payment via a gift or credit card, police said.

Police said they recovered several images of child pornography from Hanvey’s phone.

Hanvey is charged with a single felony charge of possessing child pornography.

NEW YORK — Dozens of NYPD officers swarmed an apartment building in the New York City borough of Queens after four people, including a young boy, were shot and killed, CBS New York reports Monday. The station writes that gunfire erupted around 8:30 p.m. local time in Astoria.

CBS New York says the incident appears to be a murder-suicide and that a weapon was recovered.

The Associated Press reports that a 5-year-old boy was among the dead. Along with the boy, two women and a man were found dead in a first-floor apartment. AP says that the man’s throat had been slashed, according to New York Police Department Chief of Detectives Dermot Shea.

The station writes that police aren’t looking for any additional shooters or suspects.

It’s not clear whether the victims were related. Shea cautioned that the investigation is in its early stages.

He said the possibility of a murder-suicide is something they’re looking into.

“We don’t lean either way, but that is that something, certainly, we will look to,” he said.

AP reports that investigators are interviewing the person who dialed 911 and examining data to determine whether police had received any relevant calls in the past from not only the apartment but the nearby area.

“We don’t want to leave any stone unturned,” Shea said. “There are calls that we believe are going to be related to that building, but it’s a little preliminary.”

Video posted to Twitter from a CBS New York reporter shows a heavy police response at the scene as bystanders gathered behind police lines.

FBI investigates connections after Junction City home is tagged with racist graffiti

mikenova shared this story .

JUNCTION CITY, Ore. — Jocelyn Garcia has lived in Junction City for more than a decade. Her home was the second building to be vandalized with a swastika and a racial slur within the past month.

The Junction City Police and FBI are investigating the racist graffiti outside her apartment.

Garcia says this behavior is uncommon and now says she feels targeted as an African American woman living in Junction City.

“Junction City police had called me to let me know there was an incident,” she explained, “somebody had spray-painted some derogatory symbols and derogatory words on my building.”

Shocked by this behavior, she says she now feels unsafe.

It’s the second such incident to happen in the area over the past few weeks.

“That also involved potential arson that that we are investigating, so it’s a little different in the scenario that you have there, but it also had very similar spray painting that was left at the scene,” said Officer Tim Garrity with Junction City Police Department.

The incidents happened just a block away from each other, and now the FBI is looking to see if there could be a possible connection.

“Everything is being looked into. We are not going to rule that out but it’s still an active investigation,” says Garrity.

Garcia’s neighbor, Kevin Ferrel, lives right across the street. He reported the graffiti to police immediately after seeing it early Sunday morning.

“It makes me feel kind of uncomfortable about living here in this city, Ferrel said. “That is what I was moving away from. I figured I’d get out in the country where you weren’t involved in that.”

Now it’s under investigation by the FBI for a possible hate-bias crime.

“I’m a really quiet person, I don’t bother anybody, I go to work and I come home, and this is what I get – for being black, living in Junction City,” said Garcia.

Маскировка его дар:
Белоснежный он кальмар

Или быстрый хитрый скат
Что песком бросаться рад…

Он лишь вся твоя надежда – 
Где, король, твоя одежда?

Выживания искусство, 
И интриг шестое чувство

Всё такой же маскарад. 
Вовчик, ты же ведь не скат!

У морских зверей учись
Но быть их выше не боись

Лучше честность до предела
Всё хитрить и врать – не дело

О проблемах не тужи
И с Америкой дружи!

Это – самое главное, и тогда всё будет в порядке.
А со всем остальным мы потом разберёмся.

SMITH: Russia’s transgressions | Viewpoints

mikenova shared this story from www.starherald.com – RSS Results in opinion/columnists/viewpoints of type article.

Russia is no friend to the American people. Its transgressions are very real and so is the threat still posed by its nuclear weapons. Many of us remember the specter of nuclear war which inspired “duck and cover” exercises just as regularly as fire drills in our community schools.

Russia’s conventional military strength pales in comparison to the United States, but its arsenal of intercontinental ballistic missiles did not vanish in 1991 with the end of the Cold War. I have personally visited our men and women in uniform who staff facilities in Nebraska’s Panhandle which house nuclear missiles and remind us of the ongoing nuclear threat from Russia.

President Trump and his predecessors were right to encourage dialogue and open communication between our countries. The danger of poor communication between nuclear powers was on full display in 1962 when the world stood on the brink of nuclear holocaust for 13 days as the United States and Soviet Union faced off during the Cuban Missile Crisis.

Even still, there is no excuse for Russia’s behavior which has been nothing short of abhorrent. From meddling in our elections at home to its blatant aggression in Eastern Europe and support for Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad, Russia is no partner for peace.

In 2014, Putin staged a sham referendum in Crimea which he then used as justification to annex the former Soviet territory given its strategic importance as a base of operations in the Black Sea. Russia continues its campaign to undermine Ukraine’s sovereignty by supporting separatists in its eastern regions who many believe are comprised in part by Russian soldiers out of uniform.

It has also become clear Russian operatives conducted a coordinated effort to delegitimize our 2016 elections through a sophisticated hacking operation and online propaganda disguised as American dissent. While these efforts and their connection to the Kremlin have been confirmed beyond reasonable doubt, I find it unsettling that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into potential collusion between President Trump and Russian hackers has turned into a self-perpetuating free-for-all with no end in sight.

This is not to say Mueller’s investigations are without merit. To the contrary, his recent indictment of 12 Russian intelligence operatives for election meddling shows we may have only uncovered the beginning of Russia’s treachery. However, shifting objectives have allowed the president’s detractors to use the mere existence of Mueller’s investigation to support unfounded assertions of Trump-Russia collusion despite the investigation not having produced one shred of information supporting such a claim.

For this reason, any such evidence of collusion should be made public, or Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation into Trump-Russia collusion should be brought to a swift end. Any otherwise ongoing investigations into Russia’s actions should be conducted separately and with vigor, unclouded by assertions of collusion. Russia must be held to account for its transgressions, which risk undermining our democratic institutions.

While I had hoped for a more assertive posture from President Trump at his July 16 summit with President Putin, I support his efforts to establish dialogue. Such a negative reaction from President Trump’s detractors is ironic given many of them were supportive of President Obama’s foreign policy which emboldened North Korea, left Iran virtually unconstrained, and allowed Russia to trample both Ukraine’s sovereignty and our political system.

Just last year I joined a nearly unanimous majority to levy increased sanctions against Russia which, in addition to low oil prices, led its economy to contract over the past two years and severely limit its growth potential. However, sanctions without dialogue are only half the equation for changing Russia’s behavior. President Trump must make clear to President Putin that his actions are unacceptable and the American people will not stand for further offenses.

AP FACT CHECK: Russia probe about more than just ‘collusion’

mikenova shared this story .

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump denies any “collusion” with the Russians, while his lawyer Rudy Giuliani says it’s not even a crime. Case closed? Not exactly.

Giuliani is right that the term “collusion” isn’t a precise one when it comes to U.S. law. But that doesn’t change the potential legal fallout stemming from the Russia investigation, which could touch on laws against computer hacking, election fraud and conspiracy against the United States.

A look at the buzz term “collusion” and what we’re really talking about:

GIULIANI on Fox News on Monday: “I have been sitting here looking in the federal code trying to find collusion as a crime…Collusion is not a crime.”

TRUMP on Twitter on Sunday: “There is No Collusion!”

THE FACTS: Giuliani is technically right that election collusion isn’t a precise legal term. (While we’re at it, election “meddling” isn’t either.) The U.S. code mostly uses the term “collusion” in antitrust laws to address crimes like price fixing.

But there are plenty of specific laws on the books that could apply if Trump’s presidential campaign is found to have collaborated with Moscow, including a conspiracy to defraud the United States. There are also laws against election fraud, computer hacking, wire fraud and falsifying records, if those apply.

So far, special counsel Robert Mueller has accused the Russians of hacking into Democrats’ computers and stealing emails, as well as trying to stoke U.S. tensions before the 2016 election using social media. Mueller has already accused Trump’s former campaign chairman and another top aide of working as foreign agents for Ukrainian interests and funneling millions of dollars from the work into offshore accounts used to fund lavish lifestyles.

Mueller might decide, for example, that a crime was committed if he finds evidence that an American was involved in the hack of Democrats, either by soliciting it or paying someone to do it.

The investigation also has exposed Moscow’s aggressive outreach to the Trump campaign, including a promise of “dirt” on Democratic rival Hillary Clinton in a meeting attended by Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr.

If Trump or his aides knew in advance that Russia had the trove of stolen emails and did nothing to alert federal authorities, they could be accused of covering up the crime of stolen emails or working as foreign agents. Although it’s rare for the Justice Department to charge people for not reporting illegal behavior, it’s also not often that a special counsel team, with a wide-ranging mandate to find wrongdoing, is on the case.

As well, a conspiracy to defraud the United States can be used to refer to any two people using “deceit, craft, or trickery” to interfere with governmental functions, such as an election.

In other words, “collusion” might be shorthand. But if it relates to Russia and U.S. elections, it can still be very much against the law.
