Trump expected to declassify Carter Page and Bruce Ohr documents

Mon, 09/10/2018 - 04:10

Trump expected to declassify Carter Page and Bruce Ohr documents | 09 Sept 2018 | President Trump is expected to declassify, as early as this week, documents covering the U.S. government's surveillance of Trump campaign adviser Carter Page and the investigative activities of senior Justice Department lawyer Bruce Ohr, according to allies of the president. Republicans on the House Intelligence and Judiciary committees believe the declassification will permanently taint the Trump-Russia investigation by showing the investigation was illegitimate to begin with... They allege that Bruce Ohr played an improper intermediary role between the Justice Department, British spy Christopher Steele and Fusion GPS -- the opposition research firm that produced the Trump-Russia dossier, funded by Democrats. (Ohr's wife, Nellie, worked for Fusion GPS on Russia-related matters during the presidential election -- a fact that Ohr did not disclose on federal forms.) And they further allege that the Obama administration improperly spied on Carter Page -- all to take down Trump.

On Sunday evening, the National Hurricane Center was forecasting Florence to become a strong Category 4 just prior to making landfall somewhere on the Southeast or Mid-Atlantic coast on Thursday.

Stephen Paddock had $1.3million held across fourteen bank accounts when he allegedly launched deadly shooting spree --When police raided his hotel room following shooting they found $41,000 worth of weapons and firearm accessories | 09 Sept 2018 | The [alleged] Las Vegas gunman had a mysterious fortune worth more than $1.3million held in separate bank accounts at the time of his shooting spree. Stephen Craig Paddock, 64, also owned a shocking collection of weapons and firearm accessories, found in his home and his Mandalay Bay hotel room where he launched his attack, worth $62,000. Las Vegas police said Paddock kept his money in 14 bank accounts and in his last two years of life he splashed out $1.5million, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal. It's not clear whether authorities will sell his arsenal of weapons, which is still in FBI custody. The filing only mentioned 13 accounts but Las Vegas police previously reported he had 14 bank accounts. It's not clear why there's a discrepancy in the number of bank accounts reported. [Apparently, being a weapons dealer for the CIA/FBI pays very well...until you're just the latest false flag patsy.]

The Obvious Suspect

Sun, 09/09/2018 - 00:34

The Obvious Suspect --The quest to unmask the New York Times op-ed writer has been filled with speculation. But the article's prose points to one person in particular. | 07 Sept 2018 | Who wrote the anonymous op-ed against President Trump in Wednesday's New York Times? All we know for certain is what the Times disclosed: that it's a "senior official in the Trump administration." But the most likely author, based on the op-ed's content and style, is the U.S. ambassador to Russia, [Deep State dirt-bag] Jon Huntsman. Huntsman is an obvious suspect for several reasons...And the article's stated motive--"Americans should know that there are adults in the room"--matches a letter that Huntsman wrote to the Salt Lake Tribune in July. In the letter, Huntsman, responding to a columnist who thought the ambassador should resign rather than keep working for Trump, explained that public servants such as himself were dutifully attending to the nation's business.
