  1. " ‘Trump Was Right’: Explosive New FBI Texts Detail Internal Furor Over Handling Of ‘Crossfire Hurricane’ Investigation

    Newly disclosed internal FBI notes and text messages detail the extent of the FBI's desire to take down Trump and his associates at any cost.


    By Sean Davis and Mollie Hemingway
    SEPTEMBER 24, 2020


    Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) agents tasked by fired former Director James Comey to take down Donald Trump during and after the 2016 election were so concerned about the agency’s potentially illegal behavior that they purchased liability insurance to protect themselves less than two weeks before Trump was inaugurated president, previously hidden FBI text messages show. The explosive new communications and internal FBI notes were disclosed in federal court filings today from Sidney Powell, the attorney who heads Michael Flynn’s legal defense team.

    “[W]e all went and purchased professional liability insurance,” one agent texted on Jan. 10, 2017, the same day CNN leaked details that then-President-elect Trump had been briefed by Comey about the bogus Christopher Steele dossier. That briefing of Trump was used as a pretext to legitimize the debunked dossier, which was funded by the Democratic National Committee and the Clinton campaign and compiled by a foreign intelligence officer who was working for a sanctioned Russian oligarch.


    “Holy crap,” an agent responded. “All the analysts too?”

    “Yep,” the first agent said. “All the folks at the Agency as well.”

    “[C]an I ask who are the most likely litigators?” an agent responded. “[A]s far as potentially suing y’all[?]”

    “[H]aha, who knows….I think [t]he concern when we got it was that there was a big leak at DOJ and the NYT among others was going to do a piece,” the first agent said.


    While the names of the agents responsible for the texts are redacted, the legal filing from Powell, quoting communications from the Department of Justice (DOJ), states that the latest document production included handwritten notes and texts from Peter Strzok, Andrew McCabe, Lisa Page, and FBI analysts who worked on the FBI’s investigation of Flynn.

    Agents also said they were worried about how a new attorney general might view the actions taken against Trump during the investigation. Shortly after then-Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) was confirmed to be Trump’s new attorney general, congressional Democrats, media, and Obama holdovers within DOJ immediately moved to force Sessions to recuse himself from overseeing the department’s investigations against Trump.

    “[T]he new AG might have some questions….then yada yada yada…we all get screwed,” one agent wrote.

  2. Zero attention from the leftist media on this, as usual.
     
  3. Hopefully liability insurance won't keep them out of prison.
     
  4. How many posts have I read that folks are going to jail, get run out of town etc etc. Durham looks mean so hes gonna jail everyone.

    How many posts have I posted saying no one is going to jail except Republicans, and that was done within months.

    Swamp

  5. Just saw this on CNN










    Just kidding. They're part of the cover. Remember that when it's time.
     
  6. Not going to jail. A book deal, professor at Harvard, consultant, board members etc

  7. "Trump, You thought you could beat the swamp, surrounded by our swamp people, LOL"

  8. Look carefully at Peter Strzok face, i swear i see horns emerging just above his eyes up into his hairline.

    They ALL look pretty pissed off too.
     
  9. what a bunch of poop... there is enough evidence to convict St Paul... but Republicans don't have the guts to turn on the lights... they sure sound like Heavy Weights at election time... useless...
     
  10. Anyone willing to bet the FBI agents who sent those text messages are now witnesses for the Durham prosecution team?
     
  11. Ron Johnson and his Senate committee finished their investigation into the Bidens a while ago. They were told to hold the report until releasing it would not compromise any ongoing federal investigations by making evidence in those cases public too early.
    Now Durham will start handing out indictments. Not only for the Crossfire Hurricane illegal investigation, but also for the FISA abuse, the rigged Mueller investigation and wait for it....
    ...wait for it...
    ....the Clinton Foundation scandal.
    Yep, you read that right. Durham took over parts of the Huber investigation on that too, and nobody outside of his team knew about it. No leaks whatsoever to the media to spin.
    And that is a very good sign.
    https://www.foxnews.com/politics/du...-john-hubers-clinton-foundation-review-source
    It was all planned to drop together right before the elections for maximum effect.
    Timing is everything my friend. Trump is the supreme grand master of payback.
     
  12. I bet you are right.
     
  13. The Democrats richly deserve it.
     
  14. The noose is tightening around their necks and they know Barr has his finger on the floor trapdoor button.
    These riots and violent street anarchy is just the Democrats and the Deep State making a desperate last attempt to overthrow Trump and escape their inevitable judgement day.
     
  15. I think it comes down to Durham and Barr understanding that indictments after the election risk a Biden win and the sudden death of their prosecutions.
     
  16. Not going to happen.
    First, Trump will win.
    Second, indictments will be handed before election day.

    One more thing:

    “You think you are mad about the phones being wiped? Stay tuned. We’ll talk in about 10 or 12 days and we’ll see if there is something else you can get mad about.”
    --Lindsey Graham talking to Hannity the other day.


    The guy knows where the wind blows. He may have been a fried of John McCain but after his death and in particular after the Kavanaugh's Stalinist show trial, he realized siding with the Deep State is a losing proposition in the Trump age. Lindsey may be a slippery SOB and I don't trust him, but I trust he's got good survival instincts.
     
  17. So how many layers are corrupt at the FBI? It obviously goes deeper than leadership/upper management.
     
  18. That is very hard, if not impossible to tell.
    This is why I always said the FBI needs to be disbanded.
     
  19. yes, yes, your pontifications are world-renowned within the halls of gt... lord, get a grip...
     
  20. [​IMG]
     
  21. I'm curious, how many democrats are in jail right now?
     
  22. Sentenced:
    Awaiting sentencing:
     
  23. Okay, as to the Professional Liability Insurance, typically it will provide partial reimbursement of legal costs stemming from a civil lawsuit. Policies do not cover the cost of criminal prosecution. Some may provide limited salary reimbursement if fired. It would need to be specified. I would guess the 50% Premium reimbursement mentioned in the text traffic would only be for a basic policy.
    Still using a feature designed to protect the honest, to protect wrongdoing.
     
  24. "Robert Mueller Investigative Agent Recently Testified Special Counsel Operation was “Intended to Get Trump”…

    Posted on September 25, 2020 by sundance

    Well, this MUST READ INTERVIEW should bring all efforts against Flynn to a halt.

    U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Missouri, Jeff Jensen, has been conducting an ongoing review of the FBI investigation that led to charges in the case against Michael Flynn. As part of that review an interview was recently conducted (September 17, 2020) with the former Flynn supervisory case agent, William Barnett – who also was assigned to the Special Counsel’s Office investigating Russian interference in the 2016 Presidential Election.

    What Special Agent Barnett says under oath about the DOJ and FBI investigations is devastating to the institutions. Here is his 302 report:

  25. I agree that trump's ex team members were convicted fairly quickly because of a fraudulent dossier-russia hoax which opened the door to spying and investigations into them....this is being dragged out way too long with this much evidence at hand....these agencies need scrapped and people need to go to jail...how many other cases are these frauds involved in where they are pulling off criminal shenanigans to convict someone , if they can do this to trump think of what they could do to a lowly citizen
     
  26. It was (is) a coup. Nothing less.
    I’d like to see all these people hanged by their necks until dead.
    However, the coup continues. And nothing will happen.
     
  27. You Win the Internet today.

    My first big laugh of the week, maybe biggest of the month.
     
  28. Don't, generally, personal liability insurance policies contain intentional bad acts Exclusions?
     
  29. Things don't just happen. People make things happen. Better said no one will do anything.
    Right now it is mostly Trump putting his nuts on the line.
    We can hope that others will rise to the occasion
     
  30. The key would be it would have to be proven bad acts.

    A good example is the LDF coverage I had at work. If I got in a shooting a lawyer would come out. They would be there throughout and trial and any appeals. But once convicted it goes away.

    Whats the point of having liability coverage if it goes away once accused of something?
     
  31. Not unusual to have matter take this turn if the insurer thinks they may be able to weasel out of paying for more than interim/pending defense. (Plus, easy way for insurer to avoid potential exposure to a Bad Faith claim by the insured against the insurer for otherwise 'not defending' straight away. Kind of a We Do We Do, For Now thing.)

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reservation_of_rights
     
  32. It's almost as if some people somewhere perceived that a secret court would be used exactly as it has been...
     
  33. Judge Sullivan is the unsung hero of the Flynn/FISA abuse corruption scandal.

    Without him fighting tooth and nail not to drop the case and clear Flynn of anynwrongdoing, we would have never had the chance to read these documents wich are damning and incriminating of both Obama's FBI and the DOJ.

    We should be thankful to his (dis)Honor.
     
  34. Also re: Comey and Weissman

    example (13).png

    Weismann, the man behind the curtain in the Mueller investigation, was also in charge of the Clinton Foundation corruption investigation.

    Worth mentioning: Weismann was also invited and participated at the Hillary 2020 election night party.

    Is it a surprise his investigation into the Clinton Foundation turned out nothing?

    Not for Durham, who took over the John Huber's investigation and now is going to drop the hammer on this scumbag.


    Yes dewitt, I got it, you don't have to repeat it every time: nothing is going to happen.
     
  35. Waited for the tough guy Durham to indict. Nothing.

    Now it 's too close to the election Barr says.

    If Biden wins, Durham is fired and the records destroyed.

    This is how DC runs out the clock.

    I wonder how much Durham was paid to slow roll the investigation.
     
  36. More bombshells. You would think there's an actual war being fought, except that all these bombs appear to be duds so far...
     
  37. Listening to the above something creepy occurred to me - from the liability defense standpoint. Ummm maybe one of our lawyers will chime in, clarify?
    The 'alleged bad acts' took place over some period of time. Personal Liability Ins. purchased at some point AFTER the alleged acts began, right? But - were not completed until some point in time AFTER said purchases.

    Typically said coverage would have to existed BEFORE the 'back acts'.... Or, would claims be evaluated as being covered as of "X" date, that being the cumulative end date of the alleged acts? How to "fix" in time cummulative actional bad acts? Same as, for example, slander/libel- with each "publication" a date-unique trigger - cummulating in one, stp, cause of action as of "X" date?

    OY! I think I just felt my brain overheat :(

  38. I hope you're right, but the timing may be too late...
