Bongino: ‘Democrats covering up the BIGGEST political scandal in U.S. history;’ they have ‘NO credibility’ (Video)

(National SentinelCover-up: Former NYPD officer, U.S. Secret Service agent and current conservative talk host Dan Bongino on Saturday accused Democrats and their allies in the mainstream media of working overtime to hide the biggest political scandal in the country’s history — weaponized spying on the Trump campaign.

“Trust the department, not the president. So your reaction to how Democrats are reacting to the White House decision to say, hey, let’s make sure we are not releasing anything to compromise national security in this memo,” said Fox News‘ “Fox & Friends Weekend” co-host Pete Hegseth, in reference to President Donald J. Trump’s refusal on Friday to agree to the release of a memo authored by Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee because it contained classified information.

The Democrat memo, authored by Ranking Member Adam Schiff of California, reportedly contained classified information.

“Pete, the Democrats have forfeited all credibility on this case. They haven’t told the truth from day one,” Bongino said.

“Pete, here’s what even more tragically amusing about the Democrats. They step — they lie so much they step on their own story. They told us before the release of the Nunes Republican memo oh my gosh sources and methods, it’s going to jeopardize national security,” he continued.

“Nobody should see this. Cover it up. Sweep it under the rug. Then the memo came out, ‘oh, this is a big nothing burger.’ This is a total dud. Nothing to see here, folks. Move along. They have not told the truth from day one on this,” Bongino said.

“They have forfeited all their credibility. This is important. They are covering up what I believe to be the biggest scandal in modern political history. That is the spying on of the Trump team by the Obama Administration with no evidence to do so,” he said.

Bongino also noted that the campaign of Hillary Clinton essentially “bought” an FBI investigation of her opponent, President Donald J. Trump, adding to the level of scandal.

Whiny Adam Schiff MELTS DOWN after Trump refuses to release Dems BOGUS FISA counter-memo

(National SentinelHissy Fit: House Intelligence Committee Ranking Member Adam Schiff, D-Calif., blasted President Donald J. Trump on Friday after the commander-in-chief refused to authorize the release of a memo Democrats on the committee produced in response to last week’s explosive FISA memo.

“After ignoring urging of FBI & DOJ not to release misleading Nunes memo because it omits material facts, @POTUS now expresses concerns over sharing precisely those facts with public and seeks to send it back to the same Majority that produced the flawed Nunes memo to begin with,” Schiff said in a tweet accompanied by a statement.

The statement runs counter to virtually every revelation in the GOP-drafted FISA memo, which documented serial abuses of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court by members of the FBI in obtaining a warrant to spy on minor Trump campaign figure Carter Page.

The memo noted that the FBI used a dossier written by former British spy Christopher Steele that was based on salacious and erroneous information provided him by Russian government sources.

The FBI failed to properly vet the dossier when applying for the surveillance warrant for Page. The FISA memo also notes that the dossier was the principal evidence used to obtain the warrant.

In his statement, Schiff called the Republican-drafted FISA memo “flawed” and a “misleading attack on law enforcement by the GOP.”

“We hope this matter can be quickly resolved so the committee can return to its charge — fully investigating the Russian interference in our election and the role of the Trump campaign, and what steps need to be taken to protect against foreign interference in the next election, now only months away,” said Schiff’s statement.

In a letter to White House counsel Don McGhan, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray said both of them had serious security concerns about the Democratic response memo.

The objections by Rosenstein and Wray were what led the president to decide to return the memo to the House Intelligence Committee for changes.

Some of Schiff’s critics have said he intentionally included classified information in the Democrats’ memo just so Trump would reject it and give him and friendly media a talking point that the president and Republicans are being partisan.

Hannity warns: ‘Just a SLIVER’ of DEEP STATE corruption has come out so far (Video)

(National SentinelSwamp Creatures: Fox News host Sean Hannity said during his Friday night program that a crescendo of information regarding Obama-era corruption in the FBI, Justice Department and other federal agencies is coming and that only a “sliver” of information has been released thus far.

“Like we’ve been telling you, sit tight. If you think this is bad right now I promise you it’s going to only get worse,” he said.

“What we have now is a sliver of the information. It’s coming out day by day. I’ve been warning you from the beginning this is Watergate on steroids. And as you can see this gets more corrupt by the day,” the Fox News star noted.

Legacy Food Storage

Referencing the revelations contained in the House Intelligence Committee’s explosive FISA memo, Hannity reminded viewers that “this whole thing starts with Hillary Clinton, remember, rigging the [Democratic] primary against [Sen.] Bernie Sanders. Why more Bernie people aren’t mad, I don’t know.”

Continuing, Hannity said:

Then she tried to rig the general election against Donald Trump. She paid for a phony Russian propaganda dossier filled with Russian government lies and propaganda…the FBI then takes that bought-and-paid-for dossier; they don’t tell the FISA judge the truth, to go out and get a warrant to spy on the Trump campaign before the election…

Left-wing HACK journalist tweets college professors should DROWN conservative students

(National SentinelFringe: A Left-wing former contributor to Deadspin gave a harsh response to a conservative activist who tweeted out that conservative students on college campuses are treated unfairly by liberal professors who dominate most institutions.

“I get countless of messages from students who say professors are lowering their grades & penalizing them for being conservative,” Charlie Kirk of Turning Point USA tweeted Wednesday. “Leftists dominating higher education represent a grave threat to our country & culture.

“Conservative students shouldn’t be targeted for disagreeing,” he added.

That tweet earned him a now-deleted response from Jesse Farrar, formerly of Deadspin and Vice, who wrote professors should instead “hold the conservative students heads under water until they stop breathing.”

Kirk responded: “I’m sure he is joking, but imagine if conservatives made a joke like that against liberals?”

“I am not joking,” Farrar wrote back, later deleting the tweet.

Kirk told Fox News the response “stunned” him. “He’s calling for the public death of conservative students,” he added. “They disagree with our worldview so much that [liberals] literally want us dead.”

Deadspin was contacted about Farrar’s comment by the Independent Review-Journal, and Deputy Editor Barry Petchesky said that while he didn’t agree with Farrar’s “method,” he said, “I can’t argue that it wouldn’t make the world a better place,” Fox News reported.

“So, mass genocide of conservative students would make the world a better place,” Kirk noted.

J. D. Heyes, editor-in-chief of The National Sentinel, noted that liberal journalists in the U.S. today are actually doing Americans a favor by revealing their true identities.

“In the age of Trump, these bozos are doing a full-reveal and letting us see them for the anti-American shills they’ve always been,” he said. “What’s more, people like this are taking over the Democratic Party, with the party’s blessing.

“Maybe now it’s easier to see why conservatives and Republicans in Congress should stop trying to ‘work with’ these Marxist lunatics who are openly advocating our deaths,” he added. “Imagine how it will be if they ever really do take power.”

Citing politics, sanctuary cities and CRIME, there’s an EXODUS out of California

(National SentinelUnsustainable: In the past few years more people are leaving many California cities than coming, despite the lure of good-paying high-tech jobs and other opportunities.

There are a number of reasons for the net outflow of California’s residents, but the principal causes are the high cost of housing, illegal immigrant crime, and the state’s far-Left politics.

“I loved it here when I first got here. I really loved it here. But it’s just not the same,” Carole Dabak, a retired engineer who’s lived in San Jose for 40 years, told local station KPIX.

She’s preparing to sell her home for about $1 million then buy a bigger home for less than half the price near Nashville, Tenn., where she has family and will retire.

Dabek cites crowding, crime, and politics as the reasons for her own exodus.

“We don’t like it here anymore. You know, we don’t like this sanctuary state status and just the politics here,” she said.

KPIX describes the outflow of people as a “mass exodus.”

Russell Hancock of Joint Venture Silicon Valley said, “Silicon Valley has been this place that is growing. And it was mostly growing because…people relocating here and relocating from other parts of the world. That’s changing.”

The company’s own survey found that people are moving to Sacramento, Austin and Portland, Oregon.

“You can’t even contemplate getting into the housing market here,” Hancock said. “And I don’t mean just service workers, I mean highly skilled professionals. The tech elite are having a hard time affording reasonable housing in Silicon Valley. So this is difficult, this makes it very difficult for employers trying to recruit.”

KPIX reported that nationwide the biggest migration centers are Phoenix, Las Vegas, Atlanta, and Nashville.

Others who have left California have cited the state’s high taxes and growing number of homeless people living in the streets.

Bannon: ‘Why are McConnell, Ryan letting DEMS investigate TRUMP?’

(National SentinelSwamp: Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon believes that Republican leaders in Congress are helping Democrats nullify President Donald J. Trump’s victory by allowing what he believes are politically motivated investigations against him to continue.

“The nullification of this election, I don’t think is coming from the Left,” Bannon told Charlie Rose in an interview that was released in full Tuesday night.

Portions of the interview aired on “60 Minutes” on Sunday, which included Bannon saying he does not think that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky and House Speaker Paul Ryan of Wisconson want the president’s “populist, economic nationalist agenda to be implemented.”

In the full interview, Bannon said, “Not only do you have a special prosecutor and the Justice Department and a couple of grand juries. You have on Capitol Hill … with Republican leadership, you have three separate committees.

“You have, I think, two in the Senate and one in the House,” Bannon said in reference to the Senate Judiciary and Intelligence Committees and the House Intelligence Committee. “And they are investigating him and sending out subpoenas, and they’ve had some big breaks already.”

As noted by The Daily Caller:

The House Intelligence Committee has received a cache of documents from the Trump Organization, the Senate Judiciary Committee has questioned Donald Trump Jr, and former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort has testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee.

“Principally the Republican leadership has allowed three committees to go and principally be run by Democrats,” Bannon said.

“I think [California Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff] is running the House committee … looks like [Democratic Virginia Sen. Mark Warner] is running the Senate committee and not [Republican North Carolina Sen. Richard Burr].”

Typical: Bette Midler wishes for VIOLENCE against Sen. Rand Paul for DOING his job

(National SentinelFilibuster: Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., took to the floor of his chamber Thursday evening to rail against a two-year budget deal being negotiated between members of both parties because it substantially raises spending and will likely add to the national debt.

“When the Democrats are in power, Republicans appear to be the conservative party,” Paul said at one point on the Senate floor, during a speech that slowed down the budget approval process ahead of a midnight government shutdown deadline.

“But when Republicans are in power, it seems there is no conservative party. The hypocrisy hangs in the air and chokes anyone with a sense of decency or intellectual honesty,” he added.

Republicans were critical of Paul because his effort led to the government being shut down — at least temporarily. At this hour it remains shut down until President Donald J. Trump signs budget legislation that passed both chambers of Congress.

Despite what anyone may think of Paul’s efforts and statements, that is what his constituents elected him to do — fight for the principles upon which he ran, say supporters.

But should disagreement invoke violence? Actress Bette Midler thinks so, according to a tweet she sent Thursday evening referencing a recent violent attack upon Paul by a neighbor that left him with six broken ribs.

“Where’s Rand Paul’s neighbor when we need him?” she said.

A spokesman for the senator was blunt in his response.

“I guess some people think felony assault, six broken ribs and other internal injuries are funny. That makes them pretty disturbed,” Chief Strategist Doug Stafford told the Gateway Pundit in response to the tweet.

World CHUMPS: Entire Philadelphia Eagles team may BOYCOTT White House visit after winning Super Bowl

(National SentinelNo Class: The TV ratings for this year’s Super Bowl LXI were similar to ratings for the entire NFL the past year — down — yet the newly crowned world-champion Philadelphia Eagles may be set to ensure that the league’s rating woes continue into next season.

The Eagles took home the Lombardi Trophy for the first time in their franchise’s history, but may politicize the win by refusing to be honored at the White House by President Donald J. Trump.

Three players on the team had already announced they would not go: Defensive end Chris Long, safety Malcolm Jenkins, and running back LeGarrette Blount.

Blount and Long were with the New England Patriots when they won the Super Bowl last year; neither went to the White House then, either, because of President Donald J. Trump.

Now members of the team that beat the Patriots this year, both have once again said they would boycott the visit.

Now it looks like the entire team may do so.

“Rumors are circulating on social media that the Eagles are planning to boycott as a team. The Eagles, who arrived back in Philadelphia Monday afternoon, did not immediately respond to a request confirming those rumors,” the New York Daily News reported.

Trump was extremely critical of NFL players who took a knee or sat on the bench during the playing of the National Anthem this year, as well as team owners who permitted players to do so.

The protests were started the previous season by former quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who has been unable to sign on with another team since he left the San Francisco 49ers.

The protests are a major reason why viewership and ratings fell this past season, according to studies.

Clinton hatchet man Schearer peddled TRUMP DIRT sooner than thought; info found its way to DOSSIER author Steele

(National SentinelInside Job: A longtime operative for Hillary Clinton was peddling bogus information against then-GOP presidential nominee Donald J. Trump in August 2016, sooner than previously thought.

As reported by The Daily Caller, a government source said that Cody Shearer was attempting to peddle dirt on Trump two months earlier than other reporting suggested.

But government officials did not take much of what Shearer — a former journalist — was saying seriously because he was “not a guy with a whole lot of credibility,” said the source, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of investigations into the various Trump-Russia investigations.

Nevertheless, the info Schearer was peddling made it up the chain and into the hands of “Trump dossier” author and former British spy Christopher Steele.

The DC’s Chuck Ross noted further:

The House Intelligence and Senate Judiciary Committees are investigating the so-called “Shearer memo” and how it made its way from the Clinton operative, through the State Department, and into the hands of Christopher Steele, the former British spy who wrote the infamous dossier.

Steele subsequently passed along some of the information to the FBI in October 2016, The Guardian first reported Jan. 30.

That was about the time the FBI was attempting for a second time to obtain a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court warrant against Trump campaign official Carter Page. The bureau had initially sought a warrant over the summer of 2016 but that application was rejected.

Subsequent reporting noted that FBI agents held up the dossier as legitimate intelligence in October 2016 — not as political opposition research — when they were successful in obtaining a warrant to spy on Page. Those reports were confirmed in the “FISA memo” — a four-page summary of the House Intelligence Committee’s investigation into alleged “Trump-Russia collusion” that was released last week.

“Shearer’s involvement in digging up Trump dirt is one of the stranger twists in the saga of the Russia investigation, one that involves a recently retired State Department official named Jonathan Winer,” Ross reported, adding:

During the presidential campaign, Winer, who served at the time as special envoy to Libya, obtained information from Steele in summer 2016. He passed it along to then-Sec. of State John Kerry in the form of a two-page memo.

The Atlantic and The Washington Post reported on Tuesday that Shearer’s information made its way to Steele through at least two intermediaries.

Shearer obtained information from an unidentified foreign source who then provided the information to his longtime friend and fellow Clinton crony, Sidney Blumenthal. Blumenthal then provided the information to Winer, his friend.

Steele provided the FBI with a handwritten memo based upon information from Shearer, according to The Atlantic. The note also reportedly referenced Shearer’s association with Blumenthal and disclosed that the information was unverified.

The Shearer memo and the Steele dossier contain some of the same unverified allegations.

The basic information contained in Schearer’s memo was that Russia’s spy agency, the FSB, had video footage of Trump engaging in sex acts with prostitutes in a Moscow hotel room.

Steele and Schearer run in similar circles of friends but Steele, a former spy with connections to the FBI and CIA, has a better reputation. That’s likely why the FBI did not vet his dossier before using it to obtain a FISC warrant against Page — a violation of rules.

POP: Trump’s approval rating better than OBAMA’s at same period in presidency

(National SentinelSurvey Says: Democrats and Left-leaning pundits are quick to note during any discussion about President Donald J. Trump’s agenda that he’s a “deeply unpopular” chief executive who has to work with the opposition party if he wants to govern.

But a new survey has, again, defied that narrative: The Rasmussen Daily Tracking survey, which was one of the few accurate polls during the 2016 campaign (it consistently had Trump ahead of his rival, Hillary Clinton), has Trump polling at 48 percent — four points higher than his predecessor at the same time in his term.

“The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Wednesday shows that 48% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Fifty-one percent (51%) disapprove,” the polling firm said.

Granted, presidential approval ratings could always improve, but Trump’s ratings are high despite the fact that 90 percent of the media coverage during a recent three-month period of time was negative, and he’s endured personal attacks on a scale that is unprecedented.

Meanwhile, on February 7, 2010, President Obama had an approval rating of 44 percent according to the same polling firm, while 56 strongly disapproved.

And Obama’s media coverage was far less hostile.

DiGenova: Memo 2.0 proves SOMEONE in Obama’s State Dept. helped feed false info to FBI; ‘Somebody’s going to have to go to PRISON’ (Video)

(National SentinelIndictments: Former U.S. attorney Joe diGenova argued on Fox News‘ Laura Ingraham program Tuesday night that the newly released “memo 2.0” — a redacted version of an eight-page memo written by Sens. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, and Lindsey Graham — proves someone in President Obama’s State Department fed the FBI false information through Trump dossier author Christopher Steele.

Part of that information was then used by the FBI to obtain surveillance warrants against a member of President Donald J. Trump’s campaign.

In his inteview, diGenova said such actions are likely illegal and that someone needs to be held legally responsible.

“The Grassley-Graham memo establishes beyond any doubt that the FBI knowingly deceived the FISA court about the information it was presenting to them, lied to them about the fact that it was verified information, which it was not — which the law requires,” he said.

“And now we know that additional Clinton allies, including Sidney Blumenthal, were involved in the transmission of false information, unverified information to the FBI through State Department officials. Somebody’s going to have to go to prison,” he declared.

Watch:

Also on Tuesday, Grassley released a “much-less redacted” version of this week’s criminal referral — also known as memo 2.0 — of former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele.

On Monday, Grassley and Graham said that Steele compiled his anti-Trump dossier based on information provided him by a Hillary Clinton contact and Obama State Department official.

Investigative reporter Sara A. Carter noted further:

A new and highly redacted document released Monday by the Senate Judiciary Committee reveals that former British spy Christopher Steele, the man behind the unverified and controversial dossier, wrote an additional memo regarding alleged Russian collusion with President Donald Trump but that the information was largely based on information provided by allies of former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

…[G]rassley sent a criminal referral regarding Steele’s involvement in the dossier to the Department of Justice referral January 4. The criminal referral confirms that allies of Clinton and the Obama administration were providing Steele with what they deemed damaging information on then candidate-elect Trump.

“One memorandum by Mr. Steele that was not published by Buzzfeed is dated October 19, 2016. The report alleges (redacted), as well as (redacted),” Memo 2.0 states. ”

FO-300x250-1

Mr. Steele’s memorandum states that his company ‘received this report from (redacted) U.S. State Department,’ that the report was the second in a series, and that the report was information that came from a foreign sub-source who ‘is in touch with (redacted) US State Department,’ that the report was the second in a series, and that the report was information that came from a sub-source who ‘is in touch with (redacted), a contact of (redacted) of (redacted) a friend of the Clintons, who passed it to (redacted).”

“I don’t take lightly making a referral for criminal investigation. But, as I would with any credible evidence of a crime unearthed in the course of our investigations, I feel obliged to pass that information along to the Justice Department for appropriate review,” Grassley said in a statement.

Report suggests FBI PAID Trump dossier author Steele’s travel expenses so he’d look like an ‘INFORMANT’ rather than a HACK for the DNC

(National SentinelPoliticized: Congressional investigators are poring over evidence in an effort to find out if the FBI paid Trump dossier author and former British spy Christopher Steele’s travel expenses to Washingon, D.C., and Rome so he would look more like an “informant” than an opposition researcher paid by the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton campaign.

Steele, who was due in a London court earlier this week for a long-awaited deposition, was a no-show after his lawyers argued he should not have to sit for videotape sessions.

Steele is under fire again following the release of a redacted eight-page memo by Sens. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, and Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., that was part of a criminal referral involving Steele to the Justice Department.

Steele and the dossier are key to the so-called “Russian collusion” investigation. Congress wants to the Obama FBI’s full role in its relationship with Steele. The four-page FISA memo last week said that the FBI cut its ties to Steele after agents discovered he was leaking info about his relationship with the bureau to the press.

The Grassley-Graham referral also said that Steele was paid $160,000 by Fusion GPS, the opposition research firm that commissioned the dossier, which was ultimately financed by the Clinton campaign and the DNC.

It also confirms that the FBI authorized payment to Steele as well.

Steele traveled to Washington D.C. in September of 2016 and met with reporters. One of the meetings was held in the office of the DNC’s general counsel. He also traveled to Rome in September of 2016 to meet with FBI officials.

Now, congressional investigators would like to know why the bureau agreed to pay Steele at all.

On Tuesday, Paul Sperry, an investigative reporter for the New York Post, tweeted that investigators were pursuing this “new line of inquiry.”

“BREAKING: Hill committees pursuing new line of inquiry into whether FBI offered to pay Steele in order to ‘clean him up’ before FISC as ‘paid informant’ vs hired Hillary hand. Looking at FBI reimbursement of Steele travel expenses to DC & Rome legat [sic] office. (Never went to Russia),” he tweeted.

In addition, according to Breitbart News, the Grassley-Graham memo indicates that Steele allegedly lied to the bureau about his contact with Yahoo News, while the FBI was not fully forthcoming with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court in order to obtain a surveillance warrant for Trump campaign figure Carter Page.

“Then-FBI Director James Comey briefed Feinstein and Grassley in March 2017 and told them that the FBI had relied on the dossier “absent meaningful corroboration — and in light of the highly political motives surrounding its creation” because Steele himself was considered reliable due to his past work with the FBI,” the site reported.

Nunes MISSILE: ‘Clear LINK’ between DEMOCRATS and Russia in 2016 election

(National SentinelRevealed: House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., made waves again on Tuesday after he stated the panel’s ongoing ‘Russian collusion’ investigation has established a “clear link” between Moscow and Democrats.

During an appearance on Fox News, Nunes made it clear that the link was part of a conspiracy to undermine and smear President Donald J. Trump with the assistance of Russian government operatives.

“We have a clear link to Russia — you have a campaign who hired a law firm, who hire Fusion GPS, who hired a foreign agent, who then got information from the Russians on the other campaign,” said Nunes.

“It seems like the counterintelligence investigation should have been opened up against the Hillary campaign when they got ahold of the dossier. But that didn’t happen, either.”

The Intel chairman also said that the FBI never informed the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court that the manufactured “Trump dossier” the bureau used to get a surveillance warrant for one-time Trump campaign advisor Carter Page was, in fact, a political opposition research document, not a piece of intelligence.

And he said the bureau also never informed the FISC that the dossier was paid for by the Hillary campaign and the Democratic National Committee.

Nunes also lamented the fact that the establishment media is essentially ignoring the revelations contained in his FISA memo and the further allegations being made against the Obama administration and the former president for their alleged roles in the scandal.

“I think the bigger problem, challenge here, is that the mainstream media is totally uninterested in this,” he said.

“Can you imagine if the shoe was on the other foot – and Donald Trump or George Bush or Karl Rove had paid for information and then George W Bush’s FBI had opened an investigation into the Obama campaign because they were talking to Russians – which, by the way, really did happen; the Obama campaign was talking to Russians back in 2008 – and open up a counterintelligence investigation using dirt dug up and paid for by RNC and George W. Bush supporters?” the chairman continued.

“This town would be on fire. Every reporter would be following around Karl Rove and George W. Bush all over town – yet it’s crickets from the media,” he noted.

“It’s embarrassing. It’s absolutely embarrassing, I’m almost flabbergasted. Because I thought at least there would be some ounce of credibility left, but there really is none.”

Hannity: Release of SECOND memo detailing MORE Obama-era CORRUPTION should ‘SCARE’ ALL Americans

(National SentinelPoliticals as Unusual: In a Tuesday op-ed for Fox News, host Sean Hannity expounded upon new revelations of Obama-era corruption tied to the “Trump dossier” and spying on the Trump campaign that he began during his network program Monday evening.

Hannity talked about a memorandum penned by the chairman and senior Republican member of the Senate Judiciary Committee — Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa and Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, respectively — in which they made a criminal referral to the FBI, requesting the bureau launch an investigation into former British spy Christopher Steele.

In their letter to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray early last month, the two senators said they wanted to know if the former MI6 agent was dishonest during his interactions with federal authorities.

In his op-ed, Hannity noted that the two senators “have released a heavily redacted, yet very revealing copy of their criminal referral against ex-British spy Christopher Steele, the author of the dubious dossier we now know was parlayed into a FISA warrant by Trump-hating operatives at the Justice Department.

“Grassley and Graham tell us that, while working on a second dossier for Clinton opposition research firm Fusion GPS, Steele was being fed information directly from the Obama State Department and from Clinton allies as well as his usual, sketchy Russian sources,” Hannity said.

“That’s right, teams Clinton and Obama were working with a foreign spy to undermine then-candidate Donald Trump,” he added.

Emergency Foods

“The Grassley-Graham memo goes on to say ‘it’s troubling enough that the Clinton campaign funded Mr. Steele’s work, but [worse] that these Clinton associates were contemporaneously feeding Mr. Steele’s allegations. It raises huge additional concerns about his credibility,'” Hannity wrote.

“The incestuous ties between Fusion, Steele, the Clinton campaign and the Obama Justice Department are alarming. Clinton hired Fusion, which hired Steele. Steele was working with the FBI at the same time. The wife of a top Justice Department official, Bruce Ohr, was hired by Fusion to work with Steele.

“You should be scared. And disgusted,” said the Fox News host.

“I don’t take lightly making a referral for criminal investigation. But, as I would with any credible evidence of a crime unearthed in the course of our investigations, I feel obliged to pass that information along to the Justice Department for appropriate review,” Grassley said in a statement in January.

Graham added that “after reviewing how Mr. Steele conducted himself in distributing information contained in the dossier and how many stop signs the DOJ ignored in its use of the dossier, I believe that a special counsel needs to review this matter.”

Steele was to appear in a London court to provide a long-requested deposition but, in the wake of the release of the House Intelligence Committee’s “FISA memo,” he did not show up.

Key Trump dossier figure Carter Page disputes MAJOR allegation in document; ‘NEVER met’ Russian figure

(National SentinelRussian Hoax: While most political and intelligence leaders are convinced that Russia attempted to disrupt the 2016 presidential election, many are far less certain Moscow “colluded” with the Trump campaign to do so.

A continued dearth of evidence is contributing to those doubts, and Carter Page, a key figure in the unproven “Trump dossier” put together by former British spy Christopher Steele, refuted yet another major claim made in the document on Monday night.

During an appearance on Fox News‘ “The Ingraham Angle” with Laura Ingraham, Page flatly denied he had ever met with a Russian government agent who allegedly offered him money in exchange for lifting sanctions, as the dossier asserts.

As reported by The Daily Caller:

Page, a former Trump campaign foreign policy adviser and subject of a FISA warrant that was sought after by the FBI due to claims made in the Steele dossier, said he had never met a Russian official named Igor Sechin, who, the dossier claims, supposedly offered Page billions of dollars in return for him pressuring the Trump administration to lift sanctions against Russia.

Earlier on Monday, Donald Trump Jr., told Fox News‘ Tucker Carlson that Page was never a major figure in his father’s campaign. During his interview with Ingraham, Page said that was accurate.

Later, Page stated unequivocally that he never met Sechin.

“You could tell that there were positive opportunities on the horizon in terms of U.S., Russia relations,” said Page.

“Was that Sechin? Was that Igor Sechin?” asked Ingraham.

“No, I’ve never met Sechin in my life,” Page responded.

The DC noted further:

Ingraham then read the paragraph in the dossier that details the alleged relationship between Page and Sechin, which claims that Sechin offered Page a significant stake in the state-owned Russian oil company Rosneft in exchange for Page’s confirmation that if elected president, Trump would lift sanctions on Russia.

Page said if that were true, the stake offered would have been worth billions of dollars.

Page’s denial is significant in that the recently-released FISA memo noted that the FBI relied in large part on the unverified dossier in order to obtain a warrant from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court so the bureau could spy on Page.
