"Patriots are not revolutionaries trying to overthrow the government of the United States.
Patriots are Counter-Revolutionaries trying to prevent the government from overthrowing the Constitution."

Divided on partisan lines, the House
Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence voted yesterday to make public a
memo asserting the FBI relied on the discredited Trump-Russia dossier to obtain
court-ordered foreign-intelligence wiretaps against U.S. citizens, a
breathtaking abuse of power.
The document is already generating
shock waves in Washington, even though few on Capitol Hill are said to have
The FBI admits the Left’s electoral
collusion conspiracy theory is unsubstantiated but still refuses to distance
itself from the discredited Russia propaganda dossier Democrats paid Fusion GPS
to create to undermine President Trump’s candidacy. And congressional
Democrats, long sympathetic to Russia, have suddenly been transformed into
strong defenders of the nation’s national security apparatus, implying that
criticism of the long-troubled FBI is somehow treasonous or unpatriotic. It is
a vicious smear calculated to redirect Americans’ attention, but par for the
course for the Left.
Why anyone is even surprised at FBI
corruption is unclear. Although the nation’s premier investigative agency is
top-heavy with fine, ethical men and women, the FBI was born in corruption. Its
founding director, J. Edgar Hoover, kept blackmail material on the powerful so
he could stay in power for 50 years. The FBI needs a good housecleaning at the
Comey, McCabe and Strzok
It was a month ago that FBI Deputy
Director Andrew McCabe reportedly refused to criticize the
dossier at a closed-door hearing of the House Permanent Select Committee on
Intelligence chaired by Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.).
McCabe was relieved of his leadership
post earlier yesterday and is reportedly still on the FBI’s payroll for now. He
had planned to retire in the spring in order to qualify for full retirement
benefits but FBI Director Christopher Wray reportedly hinted in an internal
agency email that McCabe was pushed out because an upcoming government watchdog
report was highly critical of his conduct on the job.
Many more resignations are expected
at the FBI, which President Obama weaponized and used against his enemies
during his time in office.
Majority Republicans say they want to
release the memo to clear the air in the current toxic political environment
and reveal the extent of what appears to be an Obama-era FBI plot to exonerate
Hillary Clinton of wrongdoing as the nation’s secretary of state and frame
Trump for allegedly working with Russia to unfairly influence the 2016
election. Despite the loud public bellyaching of left-wingers, there is no evidence
Trump or his campaign are guilty of such collusion, which, even if it happened,
wouldn’t necessarily violate existing laws.
The vote comes after Associate
Attorney General Stephen Boyd called releasing the document
McCabe, a frequent target of
President Trump on Twitter, served as acting director of the FBI from May 9
last year when Trump fired then-director James B. Comey and until Aug. 2 when
Wray took over. While serving as acting FBI director, McCabe was involved in the
investigation into Hillary Clinton’s illicit email servers that put sensitive
national documents at risk.
The problem is that McCabe is closely
tied to Democrat politics and should never have been anywhere near the email
His wife was a Democrat candidate in
2015 for the Virginia State Senate. Her campaign received nearly $675,000 in
funding from the state’s Democratic Party and a political action committee of
then-Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D). McAuliffe is a longtime Clinton crony.
McCabe failed to recuse himself from
the Clinton email probe until Nov. 1, 2016, which was four days after Comey,
then the FBI director, announced the agency had reopened the investigation into
the emails after finding new data on computer hard drives belonging to former
Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.), the now-imprisoned sex-offender husband of
Hillary’s top lieutenant, Huma Abedin.

Whether McCabe should have recused
himself from the email investigation is now being examined by Department of
Justice Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz.
President Trump reportedly favors the
release of the four-page memo, written by Nunes, whose dogged pursuit of the
truth has subjected him to partisan slander for months, but has five days to
decide whether to publish the document. The FBI’s Wray reportedly read the memo
on the weekend at the insistence of Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) and was alarmed by
its content. Nunes is said to have asked Wray to point out any "factual
errors, national security concerns or material that could put FBI sources at
To maximize public exposure of the
memo without stepping on media coverage of the president’s first State of the
Union address tonight, the memo could see the light of day as soon as
The dossier is the salacious report
commissioned by opposition research firm Fusion GPS. The statements, among them
that Donald Trump hired prostitutes to urinate on a bed, were in the partisan
hit job compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele and published by cat
video website BuzzFeed. Steele relied heavily on Kremlin-approved sources.
The dossier was just one of many
outrageous dirty tricks by Hillary Clinton’s campaign during the 2016 election
cycle. Clinton used the Democratic National Committee to snuff out Bernie
Sanders’ bid for her party’s nomination, Clinton also personally authorized the
illicit efforts of socialist felon Bob Creamer and organizer Scott Foval who
fomented violence at Trump campaign rallies, as James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas
group revealed in undercover videos.
The dossier, which BuzzFeed admitted
is littered with errors, claims the Russians and the Trump campaign worked
closely together, yet provides only unsourced evidence and rumors. The dossier
is dominated by statements identified as coming from unnamed sources in and
around the Trump team, the Kremlin, and the business community.
Will the release of the Nunes memo
help calm things down in Congress?
