So the top lawyer from the FBI was called to Congress, and he told them that when McCabe came to him to ask him about Rod Rosenstein’s plot to secretly record the President and get him thrown out of office based on the recordings, McCabe clearly did not think it was a joke. Rod Rosenstein, an anti-Trump Jew, has claimed it was a joke.
Meanwhile, Rosenstein is being called to testify on this matter, finally.
It won’t be one of these major televised presentations before a panel, just a report to Congressional investigators. But he will be under oath.
What is he going to say? That there was just a mix-up?
An even bigger question here: what is going to happen to the FBI if it comes out that they were doing all this illegal stuff at the behest of this Jew?
Former Washington Times Editor-in-Chief John Solomon writes for The Hill:
Don’t tell former FBI general counsel James Baker that those now-infamous discussions about secretly recording President Trump and using the tapes to remove him from office were a joke.
He apparently doesn’t believe it. And he held quite the vantage point — he was on the inside of the bureau’s leadership in May 2017, when the discussions occurred.
Baker told Congress last week that his boss — then-acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe — was dead serious about the idea of surreptitiously recording the 45th president and using the evidence to make the case that Trump should be removed from office, according to my sources.
Baker told lawmakers he wasn’t in the meeting McCabe had with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein in which the subject came up. But he did have firsthand conversations with McCabe and the FBI lawyer assigned to McCabe, Lisa Page, about the issue.
“As far as Baker was concerned, this was a real plan being discussed,” said a source directly familiar with the congressional investigation. “It was no laughing matter for the FBI.”
Word of Baker’s testimony surfaced just days before Rosenstein was set to be interviewed in private on Thursday by House Judiciary Committee lawmakers.
Since The New York Times first reported the allegations, Rosenstein, the No. 2 Department of Justice (DOJ) official, has tried to downplay his role in them. His office has suggested that he thought the discussions were a joke, that Rosenstein never gave an order to carry out such a plot, and that he does not believe Trump should be removed from office.
But making those statements through a spokesperson is a bit different than having Rosenstein himself face Congress and answer the questions under penalty of felony if lawmakers think he is lying.
Baker’s account to lawmakers this month clearly complicates an already complicated picture for Rosenstein before Congress, assuming he shows up for Thursday’s interview.
But even more so, Baker’s story lays bare an extraordinary conversation in which at least some senior FBI officials thought it within their purview to try to capture the president on tape and then go to the president’s own Cabinet secretaries, hoping to persuade the senior leaders of the administration to remove the president from power.
Keep in mind, this is the same FBI that, a few months earlier during the 2016 election, had its top counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok talking to Page — his lover and the top lawyer to McCabe — about using their official powers to “stop” Trump in the election and having an “insurance policy” against the GOP nominee. That insurance policy increasingly looks like an unverified dossier created by British intelligence operative Christopher Steele — a Trump hater himself — that was bought and paid for by the Democratic Party and Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign through their mutual law firm.
Baker provided some other valuable insights in his congressional interview. As I reported last week, he revealed that he accepted information in the Russia investigation from a lawyer for the Democratic National Committee.
And my sources also confirm that Baker admitted he received a version of the Steele dossier from left-leaning reporter David Corn of Mother Jones magazine, and then forwarded it to Strzok’s team. Corn says that occurred in November 2016, right after the election.
That transaction is significant for two reasons. First, at the time, Steele had just been fired from the FBI probe for leaking to the media and he wasn’t supposed to be further assisting the probe. So Corn essentially acted as a back door to allow information to continue to flow.
Secondly, the FBI was using the news media as an investigative source outside the normal chain of evidence.
The FBI was created to investigate crimes and stop foreign intelligence and terrorism threats. It was never designed to be a broker in the political process of elections or the execution of the 25th Amendment.
I’m not going to do any kind of Qanon bullshit here.
But Rosenstein really doesn’t have much room at this point, and if he goes down, I don’t see how the entire FBI can’t go down with him.
This is another one of those things that is riding on the midterms.
Everything that is going on is all so linked together.
These issues are all layered on top of one another. But deep is the conspiracy. And it is fragile. It wouldn’t take much to unravel it. Most of this stuff is already public at this point.
Hillary did pissgate. The FBI lied to a FISA judge using pissgate to spy on Trump. Rosenstein told Trump to fire Comey, then used pissgate yet again to justify investigating Trump for firing Comey. The Strzok-Page texts and both of them being put on the Mueller team. Now this whole “let’s secretly record him so we can make a case to have him removed from office” bit from the top Jew running the whole show.
If we know about all that, imagine what we don’t know about.
