In recent weeks, House Intelligence Committee Ranking Member Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) has been teasing that he was preparing a number of criminal referrals for the Trump Justice Department involving Deep State figures allegedly tied to Spygate.
On Sunday during an interview with Fox Business Network’s “Sunday Morning Futures” host Maria Bartiromo, Nunes said he’s got eight referrals he’s preparing to make to the DoJ, which is now led by AG William Barr, who is Jeff Sessions’ straight shooter replacement said to be intimately interested in cleaning up his department and the FBI.
“We’re prepared this week to notify the attorney general that we’re prepared to send those referrals over and brief him if he wishes to be briefed,” Nunes said.
Nunes was expected, by some, to have delivered those referrals last week. But he told Bartiromo that others had been identified as being intimately involved in the coup attempt, which delayed action.
He said Sunday that up to two dozen people have been identified by his team of investigators who could eventually wind up being referred to DoJ for prosecution.<
Nunes has been working on exposing Spygate for more than two years. Given what we know from previous reporting, these former — and current — officials seem most likely to be on a list of referrals he’s preparing to send to Attorney General William Barr:
Former CIA Director John Brennan and Director of National Intelligence James Clapper: We know that the intelligence community under Barack Obama was involved in this coup attempt on many levels; POTUS was right to criticize elements of the IC when he first came into office and learned about the operation.
Brennan and Clapper are in this up to their necks. As we reported:
After all, both of these deep state swamp creatures committed open perjury before the Senate concerning the federal government’s unconstitutional spying operations, and both played a role in perpetuating the lie that President Trump “colluded” with Russia to “steal” the 2016 presidential election.
In responding to continued allegations by Leftists that members of Trump’s inner circle “lied” to Congress, thus indicating that Trump himself is “guilty” of Russian collusion, author Matt Taibbi commented on Twitter about the two elephants in the room that nobody’s talking about: Clapper and Brennan.
“… I struggle to understand why no one seems to care that two of the biggest sources of Russiagate stories, James Clapper and John Brennan, have records of lying to Congress,” Taibbi wrote.
James Comey: We reported the former FBI director has probably lied to Congress on at least two occasions:
December 2017: Former FBI Director James Comey was not truthful with Congress when he testified earlier this year when he discussed classified emails that bureau investigators found on a laptop in 2016 belonging to former U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner, said Chris Farrell, the Director of Investigations and Research at Judicial Watch.
During an appearance on Fox Business‘ “Lou Dobbs Tonight,” Farrell noted that at least five of the emails turned over to his organization on Friday by the State Department in response to a FOIA lawsuit contained classified information. At the time they were discovered, Weiner was married to Huma Abedin, a top aide to Hillary Clinton when she served as President Obama’s secretary of state.
Fox News reported that Comey said during a congressional hearing earlier this year that he believed Abedin regularly forwarded emails to Weiner for him to print out so she could give them to Clinton.
Farrell insisted that Comey’s testimony to Congress was erroneous.
“I know that people have been jailed for a fraction, a tiny fraction, of what has now been made public and documented through Judicial Watch’s litigation and so this really cries out for a legitimate investigation being done,” he told Dobbs.
The possession, transmission, and failing to secure these documents are all federal crimes that do not require intent. Why hasn’t someone been prosecuted? Any member of the
@FBI, @TheJusticeDept or #DOD would’ve been prosecuted in a second for a violation that substantial,” former NYPD Commissioner Bernard Kerik tweeted.
January 2018: During sworn testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee June 8, 2017, after he’d been fired by President Donald J. Trump, former FBI Director James Comey testified that he had only had two interactions with President Obama.
One, he said, was an hour-long conversation with Obama on policing, law enforcement and race. The other was a “brief” encounter to say goodbye on Obama’s way out the door, according to published testimony.
But during an interview with Fox News, then-Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., and Rep. John Radcliffe, R-Texas, appeared with host Martha McCallum to discuss some of what they discovered after reviewing 50,000 text messages exchanged between anti-Trump FBI agent Peter Strzok and his mistress, FBI lawyer Lisa Page.
Among those, Gowdy said, was a message exchange discussing Comey’s plans to “brief the president” about an ongoing investigation close to the November 2016 election.
“And I saw an interesting text that Director Comey was going to update the President of the United States about an investigation,” Gowdy said.
“I don’t know if it was the Hillary Clinton investigation because that had been reopened in the fall of 2016 or whether it was the Trump investigation. I just find it interesting that the head of the FBI was gonna update the President of the United States who at that point would have been President Obama,” he said.
In April 2018, former federal prosecutor Joe DiGenova said Comey needs to be charged with lying to Congress and to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court to get warrants to spy on Carter Page, a member of the Trump campaign.
“That it was absolutely purposely used illegitimately by senior officials at the FBI and the Department of Justice. Mr. Comey lied repeatedly last night. And regrettably, he lied to the FISA Court,” he added.
