The Biggest Political Scandal The Media is Missing – It Should Lead To Congressional Leadership Censure…
Everyone is so caught up with their
discussion of President Trump around the firing of FBI Director James Comey
that they are completely overlooking the most explosive scandal in the history
This scandal, if exposed, should
remove, or at least censure: Paul Ryan, Nancy Pelosi, Mitch McConnell, Chuck
Schumer, Dianne Feinstein, Richard Burr, Devin Nunes, Adam Schiff and Mark
The absence of their accountability
shows the depth of corruption within Washington DC.
Gang of Eight
understand their job – Each of the aforementioned was/is
part of the congressional intelligence oversight called the “Gang of Eight“. The Go8 are
exclusively responsible for overseeing all intelligence community activity as
it relates to intelligence gathering and corresponding investigations.
In short these eight elected
representatives are in charge of all oversight of all U.S. intelligence
operations and investigations. As elected representatives, they represent one of the most important checks within the system of
government overseeing non-elected officials.
Again, we refer back to the March 20th
testimony of FBI Director James Comey where he is questioned by Freshman
Representative Elise M. Stefanik.
Stefanik is a young, freshman
republican congresswoman from the Albany New York area. And using a
probative questioning timeline, she single-handily pulled the mask from FBI
Director James Comey, and exposed the corruption within the Gang-of-Eight yet
no-one seems to notice.
In the segment of the questioning
below Rep. Stefanik begins by asking director Comey what are the typical
protocols, broad standards and procedures for notifying the Director of
National Intelligence, the White House and senior congressional leadership (aka
the intelligence Gang of Eight), when the FBI has opened a counter-intelligence
The response from Comey is a
generalized reply (with uncomfortable body language) that notification of
counter-intel investigations are discussed with the White House, and other
pertinent officials, on a calendar basis, ie. “quarterly”.
With the statement that such
counter-intel notifications happen “generally quarterly”, and against the
backdrop that Comey stated in July of
2016 a counter-intel investigation began, Stefanik asks:
…”when did you notify the White House,
the DNI and congressional leadership”?
Everything happens in the first three
minutes of that questioning. Against the backdrop to what you know now
about Director James Comey’s investigation which began in July 2016, let’s
unpack the response.
Director Comey said he informed the
DNI (James Clapper), White House National Security Council (Susan Rice), and
the DOJ who would have been his boss acting Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates
(head of counter intelligence operations). He DID NOT notify congress.
Again, review that 2:49 second Q &
Director Comey is admitting to
congress that for eight months he did not tell them about the
counterintelligence investigation “because of the sensitivity of the matter“.
From his own testimony Director Comey
admits he coordinated with: Susan Rice (White House), James Clapper (DNI) and
Sally Yates (DOJ Counter-Intel). However, Comey also admits he
intentionally did not tell congressional oversight. EVER.
The people within congress who SHOULD
HAVE BEEN notified of the counterintelligence operation are the
‘Gang-of-Eight’: (Ryan, Pelosi, McConnell, Schumer, Nunes, Schiff, Burr and
Feinstein/Warner) [*note Warner replaced Feinstein in ’17].
Director Comey is openly admitting to
beginning an intelligence operation/investigation in July 2016 and
intentionally not notifying congress until March 2017. In essence, he is
completely operating without oversight.
However, did you hear a single member
of the Gang of Eight raise objection to this stunning revelation?
Comey is admitting to keeping the Go8
in the dark. Comey is admitting to intentionally acting without
oversight. Did a single member of the Go8 call for his removal? Did
they protest this action? Did they demand to know why he felt empowered to
violate the checks-and-balances?
Not a single member of the oversight
Gang of Eight raised an eyebrow after this testimony. Why?
What is the purpose of oversight when
the people doing the oversight don’t care if a non-elected official can operate
independent of oversight?
Answer those questions and you can see
the depth of the swamp.
This is a much bigger issue than
President Trump firing James Comey. This reality represents the
structural collapse of a primary function of government.
Here’s where it gets
interesting. Pay close attention to the names and actions by
congressional leadership as they respond to Director James Comey’s firing.
Nunes and Shiff are the head of the
House Permanent Committee on Intelligence. Burr and Warner are the heads
of the Senate Intelligence Committee. Ryan and Pelosi are the heads of
the House. McConnell and Schumer are the heads of the Senate.
The group functions as the
Gang-of-Eight as a result of their position in congress and on the oversight
committees. Yet it would appear they held no active interest in
oversight of FBI Director James Comey’s intelligence activity.
Why is that?
Tell me again about how the UniParty
