Republicans: Lisa Page a ‘far more credible’ witness than Peter Strzok

Published

on

You may recall that Lisa Page was originally scheduled to testify to a closed House committee on Wednesday. That didn’t happen but the testimony was rescheduled for today with a second session scheduled for next Monday. By all accounts, Page was a very different witness that Peter Strzok who testified in an explosive open hearing Thursday. CNN reports that Republicans praised Page as a “credible witness” and said she’s been very forthcoming with new information:

Two Republican congressmen, Reps. John Ratcliffe of Texas and Matt Gaetz of Florida, characterized Page’s closed-door testimony as more forthcoming than Strzok’s, because she answered more questions about special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, as well as the Hillary Clinton probe.

Republican Rep. Mark Meadows, a North Carolina Republican, said they had learned new information that “has been a long time coming,” but he and the other lawmakers declined to provide details.

“There is significant new info she has provided,” Meadows said, adding that he wouldn’t discuss details unless transcripts of the interviews were released…

Meadows called Page a “very credible witness,” and said she had been “falsely accused” of not wanting to cooperate with the committee, a charge that had been levied by his fellow Republicans and President Trump…

“I found Lisa Page to be far more credible than Strzok,” Gaetz said. “We did not see the smug attitude that we saw from Strozk.”

Rep. Meadows also added that he didn’t see the need for public testimony from Page of the kind we saw yesterday. All of that is quite a turnaround from a couple of days ago when Rep. Goodlatte said she would be held in contempt of Congress if she failed to show up and testify. Part of it may have been Page’s attitude but I’m certain that the lack of cameras in the room probably helped bring the temperature down as well. But despite the generally complimentary mood toward Page, Republicans weren’t feeling any warmer toward Strzok. From the Hill:

“The specific questions that Lisa Page answered that Peter Strzok did not heightened my concern that the processes at the FBI were contrived to fit the desired outcomes of people who were biased in favor of Hillary Clinton and against Donald Trump,” Gaetz said.

As I’ve written before, Page is a lesser figure in all of this both because she no longer works for the FBI and also because she wasn’t in charge of the investigations in the same way as Strzok. I don’t think that means she was any less biased than he was but ultimately he’s the bigger fish. Here’s Fox News video of Page arriving at the hearing today. As Catherine Herridge reports, she didn’t answer any questions on the way in.

Obama’s Former Director of National Intelligence Says Obama Behind Entire Russia Witch Hunt!

Guest post by Joe Hoft

President Obama’s former Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, came clean on CNN and stated that former President Obama was behind spying on President Trump!

James Clapper was on CNN yesterday and he stated that Obama was behind spying on President Trump and all the corrupt and criminal actions involving the government, including the Mueller investigation –

According to Obama’s former spy chief, James Clapper, who appeared on CNN to say it was Obama who set the entire Russia witch-hunt into motion by tasking the intelligence community assessment.

Clapper said –

If it weren’t for President Obama we might not have done the intelligence community assessment that we did that set up a whole sequence of events which are still unfolding today including Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation.  President Obama is responsible for that.  It was he who tasked us to do that intelligence community assessment in the first place.

The cat is out of the bag.

Sunday morning talking heads

Published

on

By

It’s a special day on the Sunday shows when socialism’s new superstar drops by to show off her intellectual chops.

She’ll be on “Face the Nation” along with her idol, Bernie Sanders, as they campaign together in Kansas for a progressive Democrat running for Mike Pompeo’s old House seat. Why they’re wasting their time there, I have no idea: It’s a R+15 district. Presumably the idea is to draw big crowds so that other socialist candidates across the country can point to it and say, “See? Even in the heartland they want hard-leftism.”

Otherwise it’s likely to be wall-to-wall chatter about Trump and Putin today. Adam Schiff will be the lead guest on “This Week,” where he’ll say Adam-Schiff-type things about collusion and kompromat. The top-billed Republican, meanwhile, is Marco Rubio, who took some heat this week after claiming that he was satisfied with POTUS’s “I said ‘would’ when I meant to say ‘wouldn’t’” walkback of the Putin press conference. He’ll sit down with “Face the Nation” and “State of the Union” for some “Are you serious?” questions and will also likely be pressed on Trump’s commitment to NATO. Rubio’s a hawk of almost McCain-ian proportions, but unlike McCain he has a long career ahead of him potentially and therefore needs to stay on Trump’s good side. He’ll do his best this morning to be diplomatic with his criticism of the president’s NATO skepticism.

If you can stand it, John Kerry will also be on “Face the Nation” to condemn Trump for not showing as much strength towards an enemy as Kerry himself did with, er, Iran. The full line-up is at the AP.

DEVELOPING: DOJ Releasing Docs Related to FISA Warrants on Carter Page

Published

on

By

On Friday, conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch announced documents related to the FISA warrants on Trump’s former campaign advisor, Carter Page were released by the FBI — and were on the way to JW headquarters.

Almost one year ago to the day, Judicial Watch filed a FOIA lawsuit against the DOJ for the following documents:

Copies of all proposed and all final signed FISA applications submitted to the FISC relating to Russian interference in the 2016 election, allegations of collusion between people associated with the Trump campaign and Russia, and any known Trump associates regardless of context;

Copies of all FISC responses to the above-mentioned applications in which the Court notified the FBI or Justice Department that it would not grant the proposed applications or recommended changes. If any such FISC responses were provided orally, rather than in writing, please provide copies of FBI or Justice Department records memorializing or otherwise referencing the relevant FISC responses;

Copies of all FISC orders relating to the above mentioned applications, whether denying the applications and certifications, denying the orders, modifying the orders, granting the orders, or other types of orders.

Obama’s Deep State FBI and DOJ obtained a FISA warrant on Carter Page in October of 2016 and three subsequent renewals in order to spy on Trump’s campaign and transition team.

Comey, Rosenstein, McCabe and Sally Yates all signed the FISA applications even though Hillary’s fraudulent Russia dossier was used as a pretext to obtain the warrants.

“Judicial Watch may finally get the infamous spy warrants the Obama administration and Deep State used while conspiring with the Clinton campaign to target then-candidate and now President Trump. It took a year, but the stonewall and cover-up, we hope, begins to end today,” Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton said.


Tom Fitton updated and said the docs were Fed Ex’ed.

Fitton appeared on Fox News early Saturday morning to discuss the new development.

Tom Fitton expects the documents to have redactions, however he said on Fox News, “I suspect we’ll get more answers. We won’t get all the answers we want, so the fight will continue.”

VIDEO:

The new FISA warrant documents have not been released at the time of this publication, however; The Gateway Pundit will update as soon as the documents are available.

Update: Tom Fitton says he expects to receive the corrupt FISA docs by Monday.
