Mueller hauled before secret FISA court to address FBI abuses in 2002, Congress told

Mueller hauled before secret FISA court to address FBI abuses in 2002, Congress told | 06 Feb 2019 | Robert Mueller, the former FBI director and current special prosecutor in the Russia case, once was hauled before the nation's secret intelligence court to address a large number of instances in which the FBI cheated on sensitive surveillance warrants, according to evidence gathered by congressional investigators. For most of the past 16 years, Mueller's closed-door encounter escaped public notice because of the secrecy of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC)... The sin that plagued the FBI two decades ago, and that now lingers over the Russia case, involves the omission of material facts by agents applying for FISA warrants in sensitive counterterrorism and counterintelligence cases. Such omissions are a serious matter at the FISC, because it is the one court in America where the accused gets no representation or chance to defend himself. And that means the FBI is obligated to disclose evidence of both guilt and innocence about the target of a FISA warrant.

Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax denies sexual assault claim, amid political storm

Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax denies sexual assault claim, amid political storm | 04 Feb 2019 | Virginia Lt. Gov.

Ralph Northam is battling resignation calls over a racist photo from his medical school yearbook. Fairfax, who would be next in line for governor should Northam bow to pressure and resign, called the allegation "defamatory" and "false." The allegation was first posted by Big League Politics, the same political blog that published the now-infamous yearbook photo showing someone in blackface and someone in a KKK costume, from Northam's 1984 yearbook page.

NBC News, to Claim Russia Supports Tulsi Gabbard, Relies on Firm Just Caught Fabricating Russia Data for the Democratic Party

NBC News, to Claim Russia Supports Tulsi Gabbard, Relies on Firm Just Caught Fabricating Russia Data for the Democratic Party | 03 Feb 2019 | NBC News published predictably viral story Friday, claiming that "experts who track websites and social media linked to Russia have seen stirrings of a possible campaign of support for Hawaii Democrat Tulsi Gabbard." But the whole story was a sham: The only "expert" cited by NBC in support of its key claim was the firm New Knowledge, which just got caught by the New York Times fabricating Russian troll accounts on behalf of the Democratic Party in the Alabama Senate race to manufacture false accusations that the Kremlin was interfering in that election. To justify its claim that Gabbard is the Kremlin's candidate, NBC stated, "analysts at New Knowledge, the company the Senate Intelligence Committee used to track Russian activities in the 2016 election, told NBC News they've spotted 'chatter' related to Gabbard in anonymous online message boards, including those known for fomenting right-wing troll campaigns." What NBC -- amazingly -- concealed is a fact that reveals its article to be a journalistic fraud: That same firm, New Knowledge, was caught just six weeks ago engaging in a massive scam to create fictitious Russian troll accounts on Facebook and Twitter in order to claim that the Kremlin was working to defeat Democratic Senate nominee Doug Jones in Alabama.

Senate Unites Against Trump to Defend Perpetual Wars in Syria, Afghanistan --Only 3 Republicans Vote 'Nay' | 03 Feb 2019 | Our Senate won't unite on anything to help America but they will unite on keeping our forever wars going indefinitely. From the New York Times: The Senate, in a bipartisan rebuke to President Trump's foreign policy, voted overwhelmingly to advance legislation drafted by the majority leader to express strong opposition to the president's withdrawal of United States military forces from Syria and Afghanistan. The 68-to-23 vote to cut off debate ensures that the amendment, written by Senator [Deep State scum-bag] Mitch McConnell of Kentucky and backed by virtually every Senate Republican, will be added to a broader bipartisan Middle East policy bill expected to easily pass the Senate next week. It's not just Trump, but the will of the American public who voted him into office to end these wars which was "rebuked" here. The "broader bipartisan Middle East policy bill" is a bill to give Israel $38 billion from US taxpayers and make it illegal for US citizens to boycott the state of Israel.

Cory Booker announces 2020 presidential run

Cory Booker announces 2020 presidential run | 01 Feb 2019 | Cory Booker, once mayor of New Jersey's largest city and now one of the most high-profile, media savvy U.S. senators, declared his candidacy for president on Friday, joining an already crowded field of Democrats looking to be President Trump's 2020 challenger. Booker announced his long-anticipated decision the same way many Americans have come to know him, on Twitter, presenting himself as a healer of the country's deep divisions and stressing the importance of "collective action." ...But Democrats are wary of Booker's ties to Wall Street and the pharmaceutical industry, relationships Booker has tried to downplay in recent months by, for example, renouncing contributions from corporate PACs but ones that could hurt him among progressive voters. Booker at one point was the top recipient of Wall Street money in Congress and, in 2017, voted against a proposal aimed at lowering prescription drug prices, earning him the ire of many in his own party.

CNN's 'Venezuelan army defectors' are not in army, not defectors, and don't live in Venezuela

CNN's 'Venezuelan army defectors' are not in army, not defectors, and don't live in Venezuela --The two are "former soldiers" who "live outside the country," a fact CNN itself admits in the story attached to the video. | 01 Feb 2019 | Closer inspection of the uniforms worn by two self-proclaimed Venezuelan army defectors interviewed on CNN earlier this week has revealed that they are not who they say they are, and probably should not be given guns...Their conveniently timed appeal came alongside ramped up efforts by the US to institute regime change in the oil-rich South American nation, installing pro-American opposition leader [Deep State/CIA troll] Juan Guaidó into power. The two claimed to be in contact with a network of disgruntled army units and defectors ready to "rise up in arms" against recently re-elected President Nicolas Maduro. If this story wasn't already suspicious enough, it turns out that the pair were wearing uniforms that were retired by the Venezuelan military after consolidating its branches in 2008.

Graham asked for the briefing to take place no later than Feb. 5.
