WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The former British spy who produced a dossier describing alleged links between Donald Trump and Russia will not cooperate with a prosecutor assigned by U.S. Attorney General William Barr to review how the investigations of Trump and his 2016 election campaign began, a source with knowledge of the situation said.
Christopher Steele, a former Russia expert for the British spy agency MI6, will not answer questions from prosecutor John Durham, named by Barr to examine the origins of the investigations into Trump and his campaign team, said the source close to Steele’s London-based private investigation firm, Orbis Business Intelligence.
Trump has given Barr broad authority to declassify intelligence materials related to the investigations. Last week Trump ordered the heads of U.S. spy and law enforcement agencies to cooperate with Durham.
Steele, who had previously collaborated with the FBI on issues such as corruption in the global soccer organization FIFA, was hired in 2016 by Fusion GPS, a Washington-based private investigations firm working for lawyers representing the Democratic Party and Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.
Steele produced for Fusion GPS a set of controversial and sometimes salacious reports describing alleged contacts Trump and his team had with Russians before the election.
Mr. Steele (not to be confused with Chris Steel, gay sex star from the late 90s), claims he has now been exposed to certain murderous Russian oligarchs and is hiding with his family in an undisclosed location.
Friends of the rich intelligence mercenary say he has recurring dreams of flaming orange hair and a large man in a suit swaggering toward him.
Rendition time, send him to a black site and figure it out....

While we all watch the ball on Russia and the collusion our constitutional right have been removed. We are no longer a Republic. This is a train wreck of constitutional crisis that in a few months will be too late to fix, by 2020 at least. When the blue states conspired to vote and give their electors to the popular vote, they have, in essence conspired to change our constitution from Republic to a full democracy. The smaller states are now cut out of their right for a fair election. Our constitutional right to vote has been removed. Why vote when the vote will go to six counties in New York. When you look at the demographic of the last election, and apply this new action buy states, New York will be the only state that needs to vote. This whole process needs to get in front of the supreme court for a constitutional look. The argument I have heard here is we elected our state leaders and they changed it so its on us. Not true, no representative, state or otherwise, can take our god given rights away. This needs to be resolved or the next election will never get resolved and we will have a real problem on our hands...

When they try, and power, water, and food gets cut off to the democrat strongholds and they die of starvation and internal strife, they will then be the least populated sections of the country.
[American Thinker] Hold on to your hats. At last, we are on the verge of getting to the bottom of the weaponization of the nation's top law enforcement and spy agencies to spy on political opponents, and it is far bigger than obtaining bogus FISA Court warrants to spy on Carter Page. Barack Obama's minions have been spying on his political opponents since before his 2012 re-election, and the entire Russiagate hoax was an effort to cover up that ongoing spying.
As I have stated before, the best sources for understanding the unfolding of the biggest political scandal in American history are D.C. super-lawyers Joe DiGenova and Victoria Toensing, who have an unmatched track record in explaining the events we see in the media and predicting the forthcoming revelations. I am not in communication with them, but it does appear they have superb sources ‐ which would not be surprising, given their long history as key conservative players at the highest level of the D.C. legal and political circles.
Yesterday, Joe DiGenova made his customary Monday-morning guest appearance on WMAL radio's Mornings on the Mall radio show. (WMAL is the premier conservative talk station in D.C.). The 15-minute segment is jam-packed with must-listen insights. In addition to his revelations about the true nature of the Russiagate hoax, there is another quiet bombshell he dropped ‐ see the end of this blog post for the tantalizing perspective he revealed. You can listen on the YouTube version here.
The basic story is that Admiral Mike Rogers, who was head of the NSA in the spring of 2016, discovered that the NSA's comprehensive database collecting all electronic communications in the United States was being searched by unauthorized FBI "contractors" and moved to cut off that access. He also visited Donald Trump, after which Trump moved his campaign HQ out of Trump Tower. Trump's much derided claim that his campaign was "wiretapped" likely also was the result of gaining this insight from Admiral Rogers. Joe and Victoria apparently follow the Burg. My emphasis added.
It was reported that Brennan was spying on Senate personnel back in July, 2014 in WAPO. The Atlantic reported on this in Dec. 2014. Initially, this was all denied by Brennan. It wouldn't be a surprise that he started as early as 2012 and that Obean was involved. Both are turds that need to be flushed.
Joe has made some seriously wrong predictions before.
He predicted (in Jan or Feb 2016) that Hillary would withdraw from the 2016 nomination process and be indicted.
so his track record isn't quite what the article says

So The FBI was sifting through the NSA feeds, the CIA was setting up bogus meetings outside the country-to stay legal and set up republicans, and the DOJ was running inference, all the while the liberal press spewed propaganda about the right. This is coordinated, fully executed, run to plan, this is sedition, by definition.

If these people are not accountable for their crimes, nobody is accountable. Very bad. That means anarchy,and warlords, kind of like Somalia.

[DAILYCALLER] After media outlets ran headlines warning a Dayton, Ohio, KKK rally on Saturday could be a "powder keg," the gathering proved insignificant when nine people showed up compared to roughly 500 protesters.
Outlets including The Hill ran stories with headlines like "’Powder keg’ in Dayton: Ohio city braces for KKK rally." The city estimates it spent $650,000 on security for the event, including about $250,000 on personnel and about $400,000 on materials, reported WKYC 3.
Democratic Dayton Mayor Nan Whaley told residents to avoid the downtown area Saturday.
"This hate group that is coming in from outside our community wants to incite problems in our community and we want to stop that from happening," Whaley told Ohio’s Fox45 on Thursday. "We really don’t want people to go downtown, because that’s what this hate group wants and we don’t want to give this hate group what they want."
