‘Screw It’: Report Says Fired FBI Chief James Comey Broke Protocol to Set Up Michael Flynn

Flynn’s lawyer, Sidney Powell, said that the account proves that the upper echelons of the FBI went out of its way to set up and “ambush” Flynn.



A new book claims that disgraced FBI chief James Comey purposefully broke Bureau protocol to set up and illicitly prosecute Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn.

The book released on Tuesday says that Comey knowingly took advantage of the “chaos” of the early days of the Trump administration to persecute Flynn and strike a blow against the duly elected president of the United States before his administration was fairly underway.

Josh Campbell, who was FBI Director Comey’s personal assistant, published his account of the incident in Crossfire Hurricane: Inside Donald Trump’s War on the FBI, which was released this week.

Campbell claims that Comey purposefully circumvented normal bureau procedures to authorize the Flynn investigation.

“We just decided, you know, screw it,” Comey is alleged to have said about dumping the proper procedure.

Campbell says that Comey and members of his staff had “intense discussions” about how to approach the Flynn situation.

“With all the chaos…we thought we might actually get away with sending agents over to the White House to sit down with Flynn,” Campbell says in the book.

Campbell says that Comey authorized Andrew McCabe to underplay the interview and fool Flynn into letting his guard down and neglect to involve White House lawyers who could have made sure the FBI did not take advantage of him.

Flynn’s lawyer, Sidney Powell, said that the account proves that the upper echelons of the FBI went out of its way to set up and “ambush” Flynn.

Powell spoke to the Daily Caller:

Powell told The Daily Caller News Foundation on Tuesday that the revelations in Campbell’s book show that Flynn was unfairly prosecuted.

“The conduct of the FBI and its upper echelon in planning the ambush interview of General Flynn is antithetical to our system of justice,” Powell told the DCNF.

“We are seeking all of the evidence underlying their conduct and extensive planning sessions as part of the evidence that will prove General Flynn was truthful with the agents and should never have been prosecuted.”

Powell insists that Comey’s actions show that the FBI fully intended to railroad Flynn.

Two Twitter Employees Charged with Spying for Saudi Arabia

A pair of former employees of social media giant Twitter have been arrested and charged with spying for Saudi Arabia, a report says.



A pair of former employees of social media giant Twitter have been arrested and charged with spying for Saudi Arabia, a report says.

Ahmad Abouammo, a U.S. citizen, was arrested on Tuesday and charged with spying on the Twitter accounts of three Americans on behalf of the Kingdom.

Then on Wednesday, Ali Alzabarah, a Saudi citizen living legally in the U.S., was charged with accessing the personal information of more than 6,000 Twitter accounts in 2015.

According to The Hill:

One of the accounts Alzabarah allegedly hacked belonged to Omar Abdulaziz, a known critic of Saudi Arabia, who later became friends with Jamal Khashoggi, The Washington Post columnist that was killed by the Saudi government last year.

Federal officials also arrested a Saudi citizen named Ahmed Almutairi, whom the feds say acted as a middle man between the pair and the Saudi government.

“We will not allow U.S. companies or U.S. technology to become tools of foreign repression in violation of U.S. law,” U.S. Attorney David L. Anderson said in a statement.

This is the first time anyone in the U.S. has been charged with spying for the Kingdom.

Twitter claims that no other user data was exposed by the alleged spy ring.

Human Rights Watch researcher Adam Coogle was shocked by the arrests and noted that Twitter is a space for peaceful protest in the Kingdom and the breach of trust was worrisome.

“It’s a space in which the Saudi authorities have used various means to curtail critical voices, including by seeking to unmask anonymous accounts,” Coogle said.

SHOCKING: Government Admits ‘Mistake’ in Putting Peter Strzok’s Name on Gen. Flynn Notes

Today’s revelation is amazing for how bad it has made the government look in the Michael Flynn case.



The federal government has been dragging its feet on releasing the required records in Gen Michael Flynn’s case, but today’s revelation is amazing for how bad it has made the government look in the case.

The newest revelation seems to show that the government has been lying about who made the notes during the FBI’s interview of the general.

Since day one we have been told that the notes were written by disgraced FBI agent Peter Strzok. But today the government suddenly “realized” that the notes were “actually” written by another agent named Joe Pientka.

That means the government has been giving false information to both the Flynn legal team and the court the whole time.

Wait a minute… so the FBI has claimed that Gen. Flynn should be sent to jail for “lying,” while the FBI has been lying to everyone the whole time?

How does that work?

We already know that Obama’s FBI lied about what Flynn said during this interview (as evidence by the difference between the “302” forms and the notes that formed the basis of the 302 report). But now we have the feds lying a second time in this same case.

This case needs to be thrown out and the general exonerated.

WATCH: ABC Had Full Knowledge of Jeffrey Epstein’s Crimes and Covered It Up to Help Clintons

ABC News had all the information about Clinton pal Jeffrey Epstein’s sex crimes but decided to cover it all up to help Clinton instead of reporting it.



Project Veritas has done it again: This time it has revealed that ABC News had all the information about close Clinton pal Jeffrey Epstein’s sex crimes but decided to cover it all up to help Clinton instead of reporting it.

It has been discovered that ABC had the full details on Epstein’s crimes for YEARS before it finally all came out. But they killed the story claiming that no one would care about a close Bill Clinton pal who had committed crimes of pedophilia.

Today’s new video reveals how an ABC Good Morning America Breaking News Anchor, and 20/20 Co-Anchor had significant information regarding Jeffrey Epstein’s alleged crimes years ago but was told by her superiors that the network would not run the story.

Some of the key findings of today’s video:

• Amy Robach Describes How a Witness Came Forward Years Ago With Material Against Epstein: “She Had Pictures, She Had Everything. She Was in Hiding for Twelve Years. We Convinced Her to Come Out. We Convinced Her to Talk to Us. Um, it Was Unbelievable What We Had.”

• Robach: “We Had Her Whole Allegations About Prince Andrew…” “I Got a Little Concerned About Why I Couldn’t Get On.”

• Robach Details ABC’s Initial Response to Her Acquiring This Material: “Um, First of All, I Was Told, Who’s Jeffrey Epstein? No One Knows Who That is. This is a Stupid Story.”

• Robach: “…It Was Unbelievable What We Had – Clinton, We Had Everything. I Tried for Three Years to Get it on to No Avail. And Now it’s All Coming Out and it’s like These New Revelations and I Freaking Had All of it”

• Robach Discards the Possibility of Epstein’s Cause of Death as Suicide in Prison: “…So Do I Think He Was Killed? 100% Yes”

• Robach Repeats a Statement from Attorney Brad Edwards on Camera,” …There Will Come a Day When We Will Realize Jeffrey Epstein Was the Most Prolific Pedophile This Country Has Ever Known,” Adding, “I Had It All Three Years Ago.”

In the end, what we have here is proof that ABC refused to report actual news because it would have hurt Bill and Hillary Clinton.

This story proves 100 percent that the media only cares to talk about news that hurts Republicans or discredits conservatives and if they have something that hurts Democrats, they cover it up.

Four White House Officials Refuse House Subpoenas for Impeachment Tribunal

Four White House officials have said they will refuse to appear before a House impeachment tribunal despite being served subpoenas, a report says.



Four White House officials have said they will refuse to appear before a House impeachment tribunal despite being served subpoenas, a report says.

The officials said that they would not testify in the secret tribunals that the Democrats are holding behind closed doors.

John Eisenberg, the National Security Council’s lawyer; his deputy, Michael Ellis; Robert Blair, a senior adviser to Acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney; and Brian McCormack, the associate director for natural resources at the Office of Management and Budget, all said they will defy the subpoenas issued by the partisan Democrats running the closed-door Star Chamber hearings.

The Democrat subpoenas all demanded that the officials testify in private.

The U.S. Department of Justice agreed with the defiance and recently sent a letter to White House Counsel Pat Cipollone saying that high-level presidential advisers like Eisenberg have “absolute immunity” from these nagging Democrat subpoenas.

“You have asked whether the Committee may compel Mr. Eisenberg to testify,” Assistant Attorney General Steven Engel wrote in the DOJ’s November 3 letter.” We conclude that he is absolutely immune from compelled congressional testimony in his capacity as a senior adviser to the President.”

The president subsequently directed the officials not to appear before the Democrat witch hunters.

Naturally, the Democrats claimed that failure to testify before the Democrat’s secret tribunals would be perceived as “evidence of guilt.”

According to CNBC, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff told the media that a failure to appear would be considered “further evidence of an effort by the administration to obstruct the lawful and constitutional duties of Congress.”

“This will only add to the body of evidence on a potential obstruction of Congress charge against the president,” Schiff bloviated.

As if they needed any other excuse to make such a bald-faced proclamation.

Victim Of Violent Home Invasion Credits Eight Months Pregnant Wife With Saving His Life With AR-15

She’s a keeper!



Home Invasion

The victim of a violent home invasion credits his wife with saving his life.

“When he came toward the back door in her line of sight, she clipped him, He made it from my back door to roughly 200 feet out in the front ditch before the AR did its thing.”

“Them guys came in with two normal pistols and my AR stopped it. [My wife] evened the playing field and kept them from killing me. “

Bay News 9:

LITHIA, Fla. — The bruises and swelling on Jeremy King’s face tells the story of a man on the receiving end of a brutal attack. But his actual account is far more harrowing than his injuries suggest.

“I’ve got a fractured eye socket, a fractured sinus cavity, a concussion, 20 stitches and three staples in my head,” said King, outside his home on Old Welcome Road in Lithia. “I took a severe beating.”

King said he was inside his home Wednesday when two masked men armed with guns barged in around 9:00pm. He said he doesn’t know who they are, never met them and has no idea why he was targeted. Both men pointed guns at King while demanding money. More

I love a happy ending! This could have turned out so differently with the father and mother dead. I shudder to think what these thugs would have done to the 11-year-old daughter.

When someone asks “Why do you need an AR-15?” Give them a link to this story. Never forget, the Democrats want to disarm the American people.

This is only one of many examples how our 2nd Amendment is valuable to us all because, without it, many of us would fall victim to these type of home invasions and assaults, and even worse, we might be murdered simply because we did not have the means to protect families.

California Police Warn of Fake Firefighters Looting Homes During Wildfires

Police in California are warning homeowners that fake firefighters are entering homes in areas hit by wildfires and looting them.



Police in California are warning homeowners that fake firefighters are entering homes in areas hit by wildfires and looting them.

The Kincade Fire was ignited on October 23 and has raged through more than 76,825 acres of land so far.

But now the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office reported an investigation into reports of fake firefighters in the area of the fire.

Police have reported three cases of looting so far.

The Sheriff’s office added 300 deputies to patrol areas where residents are under evacuation orders.

“We did get a report yesterday of possibly some fake firefighters out there, wanting to do some looting,” Sgt. Shawn Murphy said Wednesday, according to ABC.

No suspects have been identified or apprehended.

The three hundred more sheriff’s officers were placed on patrol to head off looters.

“You guys don’t want that, you don’t want a couple of idiots to ruin your outstanding reputation, so if you see them please report them to us. Check their credentials. Let’s get them out of there,” Sgt. Shawn Murphy said to the state’s firefighters.

“They’re taking advantage knowing that first responders, police, everyone is so busy. It’s very disheartening,” said Santa Rosa resident Jennie Cormie after hearing of the thefts.

“That’s the most terrible thing I’ve ever heard,” another resident said. “Anybody pretending to do that, that’s just total fraud.”

REVEALED: The Democrat’s ‘Whistleblower’ is a Deep CIA/Obama/Biden Operative



On Thursday, the name of the so-called Ukraine call “whistleblower” was leaked to the press and it appears that the man is a long-time Obama/Clinton/Biden operative who was fired months ago from the White House for leaking confidential information to the press.

RealClearInvestigations reported on Thursday that the “whistleblower” is a deep state operative named Eric Ciaramella, who is an analyst at the Central Intelligence Agency.

Ciaramella’s name has come up in several impeachment depositions, as well as in one open hearing held by House Democrats.

RealClearInvestigations also said that House Democrats blocked Republicans from even asking questions about Ciaramella and “intend to redact his name from all deposition transcripts.”

RCI added:

RealClearInvestigations is disclosing the name because of the public’s interest in learning details of an effort to remove a sitting president from office. Further, the official’s status as a ‘whistleblower’ is complicated by his being a hearsay reporter of accusations against the president, one who has ‘some indicia of an arguable political bias … in favor of a rival political candidate’ — as the Intelligence Community Inspector General phrased it circumspectly in originally fielding his complaint.

So, who is this guy?

It turns out he is a 33-year-old registered Democrat who was first hired to work in the White House by Barack Obama. He also had jobs with Vice President Joe Biden’s office as well as former CIA Director John Brennan.

Ciaramella was canned from his White House job under Trump (who merely kept him on after Obama left office) in the middle of 2017 after he was fingered as a leaker to the press. After being kicked out of the White House, Ciaramella went right back to work at the CIA.

He also worked with anti-Trump, DNC opposition researcher Alexandra Chalupa.

RCI added that every newspaper knows who this guy is but has refused to report about him so he can stay hidden from American voters.

“Everyone knows who he is. CNN knows. The Washington Post knows. The New York Times knows. Congress knows. The White House knows. Even the president knows who he is,” Fred Fleitz, former CIA analyst and NSC chief of staff, told RCI.

“They’re hiding him,” Fleitz added. “They’re hiding him because of his political bias.”

Ciaramella is a CIA officer specializing in Russia and Ukraine who was detailed over to the National Security Council in 2015. At that time, he worked under former Obama National Security Adviser Susan Rice.
