Spygate: GOP Intel Cmte Members Seeking Subpoenas in FBI Bias Investigation

Republicans in the House Intelligence Committee are seeking to subpoena “about a dozen” individuals connected to allegations of political bias within the FBI according to ranking member Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA).

Speaking to Fox News’ Sean Hannity last night, Nunes said, “We are going to continue to call people in for interviews. Just last week, the new chairman of the committee said that he is going to reopen the Russia investigation. We offered about a dozen subpoenas of people that we wanted to subpoena. We don’t expect for them to subpoena the people that we want, but at every attempt that we can, at every opportunity that we get, we will make attempts to subpoena these people to come in and speak.”

The Washington Examiner points out:

Nunes, the ranking member of the committee, cautioned he has little hope in Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., taking him up on the request made during last week’s closed business meeting, but he stressed that plans are moving forward regardless to investigate alleged political bias in the FBI.

…He also said the GOP minority will ask people to come in voluntarily and speak.

In January, Nunes told Fox News host Tucker Carlson that he and his Republican colleagues will continue to investigate allegations of bias and misconduct within the FBI, and even make criminal referrals to the Department of Justice.

While the Congressman would not name anyone specific, Carlson suggested former FBI agent Peter Strzok and former FBI Director James Comey as possible candidates for criminal referrals.

Nunes also said that he doesn’t think much will get accomplished with the referrals until a new attorney general is in place.

“Don’t forget, Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) actually made a referral on Christopher Steele–the British agent who worked for the Clinton campaign. He was referred. Nothing is happening to him,” he said. “So, I think until there’s a new AG that gets in there and starts to clean this up, I think its going to be tough for the American people to have confidence in what’s happening over there.”

Shady Hypocrite Adam Schiff Met with Fusion GPS Founder in July 2018

House Intelligence Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) met with Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson at a Aspen “social event” and never bothered to tell his colleagues on the committee–a standard he hypocritically set for his Republican counterpart, Rep. Devin Nunes (CA).

John Solomon of the Hill reports that photographs taken at a prestigious July 2018 Aspen media event show Schiff meeting with Simpson.

He writes:
“At the time of the encounter, Simpson was an important witness in the House Intelligence Committee probe who had given sworn testimony about alleged, but still unproven, collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign.

Simpson ran the firm hired by Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic Party to find dirt on Trump in Moscow. He employed retired British intelligence operative Christopher Steele, whose infamous and unverified dossier became the main evidence for the FBI’s probe of the Trump campaign, particularly the surveillance warrant against Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.

And by the time of the meeting, the House Intelligence Committee had already received evidence from a senior Justice Department official, Bruce Ohr, that called into question Simpson’s testimony to lawmakers.

Both Schiff’s office and Simpson’s responded to Solomon with statements:

Schiff spokesman, Patrick Boland wrote, “The chairman did not have any pre-planned meeting with Glenn Simpson, and any conversation with him at the Aspen conference would have been brief and social in nature.”

Fusion GPS wrote, “In the summer of 2018, Mr. Simpson attended a media-sponsored social event where he exchanged small talk with Rep. Schiff and many other people who were in attendance. The conversation between the two was brief and did not cover anything substantive. There has been no subsequent contact between Mr. Simpson and Rep. Schiff.”

While Solomon notes there is nothing illegal or improper about a congressman meeting a witness in an ongoing investigation, Schiff’s encounter smacks of hypocrisy: Two years ago Schiff wanted then-Chairman Nunes to be investigated for meeting with National Security Council officials at the White House without notifying the committee.

Schiff said “I believe the public cannot have the necessary confidence that matters involving the president’s campaign or transition team can be objectively investigated or overseen by the chairman,”

Schiff’s spokesman declined to answer if the congressman disclosed his meeting with Simpson to the committee, however, multiple sources told Solomon that there was no evidence of his doing so.

President Trump reacted to the news today, tweeting, “Now we find out that Adam Schiff was spending time together in Aspen with Glenn Simpson of GPS Fusion [sic], who wrote the fake and discredited Dossier, even though Simpson was testifying before Schiff. John Solomon of @thehill”

Rep Jordan: “Three Key Facts” From Ohr’s Testimony that Disprove Schiff Memo

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) of of the House Oversight Committee joined Fox New’s Maria Bartiromo on Sunday and discussed the “three key facts” from DOJ official Bruce Ohr’s testimony to Congress that “disprove” Rep. Adam Schiff’s memo.

“Adam Schiff did his memo one year ago,” he reminded Bartiromo.  “And remember his memo was to try to undermine what Devin Nunes and his memo had to say. In Schiff’s memo…he says the Republicans ‘mischaracterize’ the influence of Bruce Ohr on the whole process and talk about a misleading timeline relative to Mr. Ohr,” the Congressman said.

Jordan stated the “three key facts” Ohr shared in his August 28, 2018 Congressional deposition that contradict Schiff’s memo were:

  1. “He said first of all Fusion was connected to the Clinton Campaign, Fusion GPS that put together the dossier.”
  2. “He said my wife Nellie Ohr worked for Fusion GPS.”
  3. “And the person Fusion hired, Christopher Steele, has deep bias against the president. So much so that Christopher Steele told Bruce Ohr himself…that Christopher Steele was “desperate” to stop Trump.”

Schiff’s memo,  Jordan reminds us, specifically states that Bruce Ohr only communicated dossier-related information with the FBI after the 2016 election and after the October 21 FISA application was delivered to the FISA Court.

“That is not accurate based on Bruce Ohr’s testimony to us in his deposition,” Jordan said.

“The most important fact, Maria, is that he communicated those key pieces of information to the FBI and DOJ prior to the election, more importantly prior to when the FBI and Department of Justice went to the FISA court to get the warrant to spy on Trump’s campaign. That is huge.”

Devin Nunes: We Will Make Criminal Referrals in FBI Misconduct Investigation



Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) said that despite losing control of the House of Representatives to Democrats, he and his Republican colleagues will continue to investigate allegations of bias and misconduct within the FBI, and even make criminal referrals to the Department of Justice.

Speaking to Fox News’ Tucker Carlson last night, Nunes said, “We’re going to make several referrals.”

While the Congressman would not name anyone specific, Carlson suggested former FBI agent Peter Strzok and former FBI Director James Comey as possible candidates for criminal referrals.

Nunes also said that he doesn’t think much will get accomplished with the referrals until a new attorney general is in place.

“Don’t forget, Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) actually made a referral on Christopher Steele–the British agent who worked for the Clinton campaign. He was referred. Nothing is happening to him,” he said. “So, I think until there’s a new AG that gets in there and starts to clean this up, I think its going to be tough for the American people to have confidence in what’s happening over there.”

“A lot of people think just because Republicans are out of power that we are not conducting an investigation. We still are.” He continued, “Whether or not people will come in and interview with us, we don’t have gavels, we don’t have subpoena power. But we will still be trying to interview people and we will still be making criminal referrals.”

Nunes also suggested the White House create a “transparency office,” to determine whether or not the FISA application to spy on Trump campaign volunteer Carter Page would be made public

“The government’s gotten so big, you’ve got so many of these different agencies. There needs to be someone in the White House or the President of the United States, who’s the boss, who can make that decision and make it quickly.”

Report: British Intelligence “Desperate” for Trump Not to Declassify FISA Docs

British Intelligence officials are desperate to convince the Trump White House to not declassify the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) wiretap application which allowed the FBI to spy on former Trump campaign volunteer Carter Page, according to the Telegraph.

U.S. and Australian officials are also against the declassification, with the British intelligence chiefs saying it would expose sources and methods.

The Telegraph reports:

British spy chiefs have “genuine concern” about sources being exposed if classified parts of the wiretap request were made public, according to figures familiar with discussions.

“It boils down to the exposure of people”, said one US intelligence official, adding: “We don’t want to reveal sources and methods.” US intelligence shares the concerns of the UK.

Another said Britain feared setting a dangerous “precedent” which could make people less likely to share information, knowing that it could one day become public.

In September, 12 House Republicans called on President Trump to declassify the FISA renewal application for Carter Page, in which–they claim–the FBI and DOJ withheld exculpatory evidence from the secret court.

**LISTEN: Dan gets to the truth about why the Brits don’t want the U.S. to declassify the documents**

Congressman Lee Zeldin (R-NY) said at the time, “Powers were abused, the FISA court was misled, and we have zero tolerance for any of it. The government has a responsibility not only to provide its best evidence in support of its application but also the best evidence it has against its case. In this case, the DOJ failed to do so.”

Over the weekend, Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) called on the Department of Justice to declassify more FBI and DOJ emails relating to the FISA court, telling Fox News, “For months we have been reviewing emails between FBI, and DOJ, and others that clearly show that they knew about information that should have been presented to the FISA court,” he said. “So it is real evidence that people within the FBI withheld evidence from the FISA court.”

Nunes said that even House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) requested that the DOJ to release the emails.

 

Spygate: Nunes Calls for Declassification of Emails that Prove Information Withheld from FISA Court

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) told Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo yesterday that he wishes to see a “fourth bucket” of emails declassified, saying it would reveal evidence that the Department of Justice and FBI withheld information from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC).

Nunes said the first of three “buckets” were Russia-related documents which President Trump–after calling for their release–had to backtrack on after Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein intervened and suggested the Inspector General review them first.

“The new fourth bucket that we’re asking to be declassified now is — for months we have been reviewing emails between FBI, and DOJ, and others that clearly show that they knew about information that should have been presented to the FISA court,” he said. “So it is real evidence that people within the FBI withheld evidence from the FISA court.”

Nunes said that even House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) requested that the DOJ to release the emails.

“Even though we know whats in those emails a lot of them are redacted so they’re still refusing to give Congress–even in a classified setting–this information,” he said.
