FOUR COINCIDENCES: FISA Abuse and Unanswered Questions About the DNC Server

By Jeff Carlson

I won’t say it started here.

That’s far too simplistic and much had already been done.

But this July 20, 2015 Memorandum on behalf of Sally Yates set the stage for much of what was to come.

Chicago may soon become the largest municipality in the U.S. to test a universal basic income program.

Chicago alderman Ameya Pawar recently proposed legislation that would provide 1,000 families with a $500 monthly stipend -- no questions asked. The bill already has the backing of the majority of city lawmakers, and Pawar hopes to soon work with Mayor Rahm Emanuel to implement the pilot program, The Intercept reported...

MOVES AND COUNTERMOVES: Motives Behind the Trump-Putin Press Conference

Let me tell you: You take on the intelligence community — they have six ways from Sunday at getting back at you." -- Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY), January 3, 2017
Over the course of the last week alone, we have learned some interesting things about the leadership of the Department of Justice and the FBI:

The Timing of the Mueller Indictments

Just hours before the Trump-Putin summit, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein released indictments of 12 Russian spies identified by Special Counsel Robert Mueller. Only one problem: the indictments were rehashed accusations from the House Intelligence Committee's months-old report. The timing of the indictments raise questions about the DOJ's intentions with respect to the Trump-Putin summit. Further, as Andrew C. McCarthy points out, 26 of the total 32 subjects indicted by Mueller are unlikely to ever see the inside of a U.S. courtroom. Highlighting the partisan nature of the DOJ's actions, the indictments themselves omit attempted hacks of Republican individuals and organizations.

FACT-CHECK: TRUE --- The DNC "Hack" Never Happened

By Michael Thau

Robert Mueller’s investigation into the 2016 presidential election is predicated on Russian intelligence having hacked the Democratic National Committee’s computers. Russia’s guilt is such an article of faith among our political class, that a Republican-controlled Congress imposed sanctions and President Trump signed on, substantially worsening relations with an important and potentially dangerous nation.

Outside the Acela Corridor, however, one finds more skepticism.

A lot of ordinary folks wonder why the DNC wouldn’t let any outside parties examine their server. Instead, the FBI accepted the word of CrowdStrike, a private contractor hired by the DNC, without any independent confirmation.

And a bunch of not so ordinary folks who know a thing or two about computers thinks there may be a simple explanation for the DNC’s unwillingness to let outsiders have a peek at the evidence: There isn’t any. The Russian hacking that’s caused so much division and turmoil at home and abroad never really happened. It was all a ruse.

UN-FREAKING-BELIEVABLE: FBI’s Strzok Was Told a Foreign Power Hacked All of Clinton’s Emails and Did... Nothing

By Luke Rosiak

A member of the House Committee on the Judiciary said during a hearing Thursday that a government watchdog found that nearly all of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s emails were sent to a foreign entity and that the FBI didn’t follow-up on that finding.

The Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG) found an “anomaly on Hillary Clinton’s emails going through their private server, and when they had done the forensic analysis, they found that her emails, every single one except four, over 30,000, were going to an address that was not on the distribution list,” Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert of Texas said during a hearing with FBI official Peter Strzok.

“It was going to an unauthorized source that was a foreign entity unrelated to Russia,” he added.

Gohmert said the ICIG investigator, Frank Rucker, presented the findings to Strzok, but that the FBI official did not do anything with the information.
