Lindsey Graham claims we’ll soon know the ugly truth about Russian probe & it will be “damning” for intelligence communities

Well, if you got the goods sir, produce them NOW. Because I’m not going to hold my breath.

From Daily Mail: Republican senator Lindsey Graham said Sunday that the Inspector General’s report on how the investigation into ties between the Trump campaign and Russia began will be ‘ugly and damning’ for the Department of Justice.

During an interview with Fox News, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Graham said the Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s report is ‘going to be ugly and damning regarding the DOJ handling of the Russian probe.’

Graham said that Horowitz’s report is now expected to be released in the coming weeks and he is determined to have the report released so that the American people can find out what it says about the Russia probe.

When asked why the report, which was expected to have been submitted months ago, was delayed for so long, Graham said that ‘Every time you turn around you find something new.’

He added that ‘Mr. Horowitz is doing a very in-depth dive’ into how the FBI made use of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act in an effort to obtain a warrant allowing them to monitor Trump’s former campaign adviser Carter Page.

Graham said that when Horowitz submits his report, the DOJ will evaluate it for classified information, but that he wants to ‘declassify as much as possible. ‘I want the American public to hear the story, I want all this information to come out,’ Graham said. ‘I don’t want people to believe what I say about it, I want them to read for themselves how bad it was.’

Graham said he wants ‘people to see how off the rails this investigation got’ and that he wants ‘people to be held accountable.’

‘I am patient,’ Graham said. ‘I am not in a hurry, I want to do it right.’

Graham said that he wanted George Papadopoulos, a former Trump campaign staffer who pleaded guilty to making false claims to the FBI, to testify in front of his Senate Judiciary Committee after Horowitz’s report is released.

The senator said he believes that Papadopoulos’ interview transcripts reveal that he was ‘clearly’ not working with the Russians as has been claimed.

Papadopoulos is said to have been responsible for initiating the Russia probe by telling an Australian diplomat that he had heard that Russia had damaging information about Hillary Clinton. The diplomat was said to have alerted US officials about what the ex-campaign staffer said.

Graham also noted that he believe the FBI’s application for a FISA warrant was a ‘fraud on the court’ because the FBI relied in Christopher Steele’s dossier to get the warrant, even though Steele was, what Graham called, ‘an unreliable informant’ who disliked Trump.

Los Angeles MS-13 members committed gruesome murders with machetes, cutting out victims hearts

From SFGate: Members of the notorious MS-13 street gang were charged in a years-long string of grisly homicides in the Los Angeles area, including some in which victims were hacked to death in the Angeles National Forest.

Members of the Los Angeles Police Department, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office and the FBI are expected to announce the unsealing of an indictment against several members of the gang during a news conference Tuesday in downtown L.A., according to a news release issued by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Los Angeles.

The charges involve at least seven homicides, many of which were recorded by the perpetrators, according to two law enforcement officials who spoke to The Times on condition of anonymity in order to discuss the case candidly. Most of the killings involved knives or machetes, and several of the victims’ bodies were dumped in remote, hilly, areas, the officials said.

Some of the suspects were high school students at the time of the slayings, one official said.

It was not immediately clear what motivated the killings. Spokesmen for the LAPD and the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Los Angeles declined to comment ahead of the news conference.

While the LAPD has said in recent years that MS-13 has become less of a factor in city crime, the gang has become a frequent focus of President Donald Trump’s diatribes about crime and illegal immigration. He has often cited the organization, which was formed in Los Angeles several decades ago, as evidence of the need for increased deportation efforts.

Last month, the LAPD arrested several members of the gang as part of a broader investigation into a series of violent events in North Hollywood, including the murder of a 34-year-old homeless man in January. In a statement, the department had said it noticed an uptick in MS-13 graffiti in the San Fernando Valley.

“Over the past year, tagging and other evidence of MS-13’s presence has been observed at multiple locations throughout the Valley,” the department said in the statement. “Officials believe the gang is attempting to establish a foothold by directly challenging rival gangs in the area.”

Not a joke: Cybersecurity company FireEye invites Hillary Clinton to speak on cyber defense

Useful idiots (definition): People who are unwitting propagandists for a cause, the goals of which they are not fully aware, and who are used cynically by the leaders of the cause.

In the case of a publicly-traded, Silicon Valley cybersecurity company called FireEye, they aren’t just useful idiots, they are plain idiots.

While she was secretary of state in the Obama administration, instead of using the State Department’s secure server for her email, Hillary Clinton used an illegal private server in her basement for her email, including sending and receiving classified material. Her people also tried to conceal evidence by scrubbing the private server. When asked about that, Hillary feigned innocence, saying she didn’t know what it meant to “wipe” a server: “What, like with a cloth or something? I don’t know how it works digitally at all.” (Fox News)

Hillary should have been indicted and jailed, but before the FBI even opened an investigation of her illegal private server, she was exonerated by corrupt FBI director James Comey.

And yet cybersecurity company FireEye has seen fit to invite Hillary Clinton to deliver the keynote speech at the 2019 Cyber Defense Summit, October 9-10, in Washington, DC.

FireEye made the announcement in a tweet on May 30, 2019:

We are pleased to announce that Former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton will be a featured keynote at our in October! Secretary Clinton will engage in an intimate Q&A keynote discussion with Kevin Mandia.

On its website, FireEye touts the Cyber Defense Summit as an opportunity for executives and security practitioners to hear “informative and insightful keynotes from industry thought leaders,” “share best practices, learn about the latest advancements, and enhance your cyber preparedness,” and learn how to “mitigate, detect, and respond to cyber attacks.”

FireEye’s tweet rightly received these incredulous responses on Twitter:

“HAHAHAHAHAHAHA”

“This is a parody, right?”

“Is this satire”

“Is this a bad joke??? Unbelievable…”

“Are you trying to become the biggest joke in the industry?”

“Congratulations! You are now the laughingstock of the entire industry!”

“The irony is unreal. Or is this a summit about how not to practice cyber security?”

“Is this the ? paid to speak about cyber security. Thanks for the laugh today”

“Are you giving out swag bags with smash blackberries, hammer, Mini servers and bleach bit?”

“Let me guess, John Podesta wasn’t available to talk about the importance of easy to remember passwords”

“I want to learn how to make emails go missing and how to properly smash a hard drive. When do tickets go on sale?”

“I would like to register for the breakout session on how to efficiently delete 33K emails. If full, sign me up instead for the session on how to safely handle BleachBit.”

“America is assuming either u don’t know/don’t care that allowed foreign governments to hack her private server with TS info. Way to reward a person that allowed Rone, Bub, Stevens and Smith to be killed and lie about it to America & in the Faces of their Families”

“Very poor business decision. You alienate half due to politics then the rest based on the fact you actually believe she is qualified. How can anyone recommend or use or based on their belief that her cyber awareness and actions were appropriate?

FireEye is the same company that the Clinton Foundation in 2016 hired to investigate a possible data breach. The company found that no files from the foundation had leaked publicly. (Fortune)

Ruh roh! TDS-infected Robert De Niro pens “strongly worded” letter to Robert Mueller

From Yahoo: After a half dozen episodes of playing the man on “Saturday Night Live,” Robert De Niro is doing his best to offer professional advice to Robert Mueller.

In a New York Times op-ed response to Mueller’s Wednesday morning press conference, the actor pleaded for the Justice Department’s outgoing special counsel to be more active in the aftermath of his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

Displaying a surprising amount of deference to a man he’s spent the past few months trying to turn into a tool for comedy on broadcast television, De Niro wrote, “As I prepared for my role on the show, I got to know you a lot better. I read about your lifetime devotion to public service and your respect for the rule of law. I watched how you presided over the special counsel’s office apparently without leaks. And you never wavered, even in the face of regular vicious attacks from the president and his surrogates.”

Still, after Mueller’s impromptu announcement this (yesterday) morning — in which he stated that he would be closing the special counsel’s office and would not be appearing before any further congressional hearings on matters related to last month’s report on his findings — De Niro wants more.

“In your news conference, you said that your investigation’s work ‘speaks for itself.’ It doesn’t. It may speak for itself to lawyers and lawmakers who have the patience and obligation to read through the more than 400 pages of carefully chosen words and nuanced conclusions (with all due respect, as good a read as it is, you’re no Stephen King),” De Niro wrote.

Whether or not De Niro had some version of this chambered and ready to go before this morning’s surprise announcement is unclear. But this is far from the first time De Niro has been vocal about matters related to the current White House occupant. “Say what you will about the president — and I have — when it comes to that lying, exaggerating, bullying thing, no one can touch him,” De Niro wrote on Wednesday, referring to an ongoing string of public statements he’s made during the Trump tenure.

Kristy Swanson and Dean Cain get death threat over pro-Trump production

From Yahoo: Kristy Swanson, famed for starring in the 1992 film version of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, says she and actor Dean Cain have received a “death threat” over a live stage reading they are starring in next month — because it supports Donald Trump.

As Politico has reported, the conservative actors are set to play former Trump-Russia investigators Peter Strzok and Lisa Page in a Washington, D.C. performance titled FBI Lovebirds: Undercovers. The reading will pore over the former FBI agents’ text messages to each other, highlighting their extramarital affair and disdain for Trump. Cain will play Strzok, while Swanson has been cast as Page.

But news of the production, which Politico described as “Trumpian,” has stirred up some animosity from critics of the president.

Swanson, who frequently tweets pro-Trump messages, shared a screenshot on a tweet sent by an anonymous troll threatening to “lock the doors and set the theater on fire.”

The actress called the message a “death threat” and demanded it be reported. Cain retweeted her post.

She later noted that the tweet had been removed, but was disappointed that the account which sent it hadn’t been “banned.”

Her fans voiced their outrage over the incident, saying the “threat” wasn’t being taken more seriously because of Swanson’s right-wing views.

Meanwhile, director Phelim McAleer is raising money to support the production, with just over $7,000 of its $95,000 goal collected so far.

“I have taken the actual hate-filled, sleazy, juvenile, corrupt text messages of top FBI operatives and lovers Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, and combined it with the transcript of their behind-closed-doors congressional testimony to show how they, and their Deep State colleagues, planned to take down the president of the United States,” the crowdfunding page reads. “This will be revealed on stage in the very words of the FBI agents.

“These dangerous people need to be exposed,” McAleer continues. “People need to see what they were saying behind closed doors. That’s why this filmed re-enactment of the texts is so important. Everyone needs to see this. So please give what you can — help with the crowdfunding so we can show the establishment and the mainstream media that we are not going to take it anymore.”

DCG

Update:

Conservative director Philip McAleer, who’s raising money to support the production of FBI Lovebirds: Undercovers as a play and movie, also produced and co-wrote GOSNELL – The Trial of America’s Most Prolific Serial Killer, which was the No. 1 independent movie in the US on its opening weekend. The movie starred Dean Cain.

Loretta Lynch says Comey lied when he claimed she told him to downplay Clinton email probe

Tough call on which lying hack you are to believe…

From Daily Mail: Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch told investigators she did not ask former FBI Director James Comey to refer to the Hillary Clinton email review as a ‘matter’ instead of an ‘investigation,’ according to a transcript released Monday night.

Comey claimed in his 2017 sworn testimony that Lynch ‘directed’ him to call the investigation a ‘matter’ during a September 2015 meeting.

The transcript of Lynch’s December 19, 2018 interview with a joint task force of the House Oversight and Judiciary committees, which was released by Judiciary ranking member Doug Collins, clashes with what Comey testified under oath.

‘I did not. I have never instructed a witness as to what to say specifically. Never have, never will,’ Lynch told the congressional investigators, according to the transcript.

It is not clear if Lynch is only denying specifically directing Comey on what to say in his sworn testimony, or if she is also denying telling him how to refer to the investigation publicly or to the press.

Lynch has been accused of helping stifle any investigations into Hillary Clinton’s emails in the months leading up to the 2016 presidential election. The 2016 Democratic presidential candidate faced scrutiny over her use of a private email account to conduct State Department business during her time as Secretary of State under former President Barack Obama.

The incident involving Lynch and Comey took place in the midst of the Clinton email review in September 2015, before the hearing where Comey was asked about the investigation.

Comey said in his 2017 statements that he had been ‘confused and concerned’ by Lynch’s request.

‘The attorney general had directed me not to call it an investigation, but instead to call it a matter, which confused me and concerned me,’ Comey testified, adding it was one of the reasons he decided to ‘step away from the department’ so the case could be credibly closed.

‘The Clinton campaign, at the time, was using all kind of euphemisms – security review, matters, things like that, for what was going on,’ Comey continued.

Comey said he knew they were getting to a place in the investigation where they would both have to speak about it publicly. ‘And I wanted to know, was she going to authorize us to confirm we had an investigation?’ Comey said. ‘And she said, ‘Yes, but don’t call it that, call it a matter.’ And I said, ‘Why would I do that?’ And she said, ‘Just call it a matter.’’

When asked about Comey’s 2017 statements on the meeting during the congressional investigation last December, Lynch said she had been ‘surprised’ by his testimony.

‘I was quite surprised that he characterized it in that way,’ Lynch said. ‘We did have a conversation about it, so I wasn’t surprised that he remembered that we met about it and talked about it.’

‘But I was quite surprised that that was his characterization of it, because that was not how it was conveyed to him, certainly not how it was intended,’ she continued.

Libtards who confronted Jeff Flake at Kavanaugh confirmation cheered at award event

A participation award for Gallagher and Archila/Getty Images

All they got was a hammer. We got SCJ Kavanaugh. I’d say we got the better deal.

From MSN: Maria Gallagher and Ana Maria Archila – the two protesters who famously confronted then-Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) in an elevator about his support of Justice Brett Kavanaugh – receiving a standing ovation as they accepted honors at the 10th annual Tribeca Disruptive Innovation Awards in New York.

The pair made headlines in September for their filmed confrontation with Flake in an elevator at the Capitol when he was on his way to a Senate Judiciary Committee vote to advance Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination to the Senate floor.

“When we showed up on that day, and I met Maria half an hour before that interaction, I did not expect to see Sen. Flake, and that we would hold him in the elevator for five minutes,” Archila told the crowd Friday at the ceremony Borough of Manhattan Community College.

Archila – the co-executive director of the Center for Popular Democracy who attended the State of the Union address as a guest of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) in February – praised Gallagher, saying, the moment with Flake showed “what it’s like to be a real New Yorker.”

Before the elevator encounter, Flake had announced that he would support Kavanaugh. After it, he called for a one-week delay in a Senate floor vote to allow for an FBI investigation into allegations of sexual misconduct against the judge.

Flake ultimately voted to confirm Kavanaugh, who now sits on the Supreme Court.

Also among the honorees at the awards show: Nelson Mandela’s grandson, Ndaba Mandela, former model and FEED founder Lauren Bush Lauren, and 8-year-old Nigerian refugee and chess prodigy Tanitoluwa “Tani” Adewumi.

Former CIA officer: Arm yourself; violence by the Left will worsen in next 2 years

Kevin Michael Shipp, 63, is a former CIA officer with six awards:

  • Two CIA Meritorious Unit Citations.
  • Three Exceptional Performance Awards,
  • A medallion for Overseas Covert Operations.

In the CIA, Shipp worked in counter-terrorism, counter-espionage, interrogation, and internal investigation. He has a B.Sc. in biology, and a Master’s degree in forensic psychophysiology from the Defense Academy for Credibility Assessment.

After Shipp retired from the CIA in 2002, he became a whistleblower about the CIA and the Deep State in the books In From the Cold and From the Company of Shadows. He is on Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter. (Sources: Wikipedia.sv; Truth Finder)

In an April 27, 2019 interview with USA Watchdog’s Greg Hunter, Shipp urges Americans to exercise our Second Amendment rights by arming ourselves because he expects that in the next year or two, the violence from what he calls the Dark Left “is going to increase to the point where it’s going to be very, very bad. There are going to be beatings and probably shootings, and shooting at police. ”

The reasons for the increasing violence from the Dark Left are:

  1. Their failure in removing President Trump from office: Shipp says the Deep State tried and failed to remove Trump from office via an attempted coup that was a global conspiracy: “Yes, this is a coup. This is the most shocking violation of the Constitution and criminal activity in the history, not just of America, but of a western government. Much of this rises to the level of treason. People need to understand how shocking this is. It was a clear conspiracy. There will be arrests and indictments without question. . . . This was a coup. It was a conspiracy. It was criminal activity. These people need to be indicted, charged and need to be put in prison, and if they’re not, then our Constitution is nothing more than a sham. This was a coup against a duly elected President, and people need to understand how serious this is.”
  2. The Left is waging a covert civil war: Shipp says: “We have a not so covert civil war going on right now that has been brewing over 60 years. We have the ‘Dark Left,’ and the DNC is fully involved with all their Congressmen and Senators. There is a Marxist movement within the DNC that is in control right now. You can match up the progressive goals with Marxist documents, and you can see they are one in the same. . . . They have to change and eliminate the Constitution. . . . They want to change the First Amendment and the Second Amendment first of all. Second of all, they despise and are targeting Christianity because Christianity . . . underlines the Constitution and is mentioned in the Declaration of Independence. That’s their second target they have to destroy. Their third target is the founding principles of America. That’s our culture. They have to destroy those three things if they are going to overturn our Constitution and turn this into a global Marxist government. That is not an understatement. . . . It’s not the same party of JFK. It’s now a Marxist party and an umbrella for every victim, twisted and perverted group that has nowhere else to go. This is a mortal blow to the Democrat Party when these things come out.”
  3. The Left will be unmasked as President Trump declassifies documents: Shipp says, “They have been using ‘classification’ as a way to cover up illegal activity. The CIA has, especially in the case of this coup, not just in this, but in other things they have done criminally. They have been withholding things from Congress using ‘classification’ for decades. Trump knows what those are, and he is going to demand that classification is removed so the American people can see it. I am going to be dancing on top of my house if and when that happens.”

Shipp predicts that the declassified documents and resultant indictments will be “the death knell for the Democrat Party and the death knell for taking over our Constitution and culture. They will exponentially bring up their violence, and Americans need to arm themselves and protect themselves against that.”

The good news is that Shipp believes Trump will win re-election in 2020.

Dan Perkins of Clash Daily echoes Kevin Shipp about indictments. Perkins predicts Barack Obama himself will be indicted by a federal grand jury:

I think over the next six months there will be revelations about the Obama Administration that will start a dialogue that raises the question, “What did President Obama know and when did he know it?” There is a second question that is more troubling and that is, “Was President Obama an active participant in the covert attacks against candidate Trump?” If it comes out that many senior Obama administration officials are implicated in this massive attempt of a coup d’état, then how can we not ask the critical question, “Was the President of the United States involved with this illegal covert action?”

We now know without a doubt that the Obama administration was spying on the Trump campaign before the general election. That fact alone should scare all of us….

I believe that members of the Justice Department and the FBI, along with CIA, Defense Intelligence Agency and other high-ranking officials that have been implicated in the attacks on Trump were all appointed by President Obama. President Obama appointed all members of the Justice Department and the FBI, along with CIA, Defense Intelligence Agency and other high-ranking officials that have been implicated in the attacks on Trump. It seems hard to believe that the president didn’t know what was going on within his own administration. What is more problematic to me is that if he claims when he goes before the grand jury that he didn’t know what was going on in his administration, he is then admitting he was no longer in control and that he was incompetent at best….

I seriously believe that over the next six months, perhaps a little longer, the American people, as well as people all over the world, will be shocked at how corrupt and dangerous the Obama Administration was with its total disregard for our nation’s laws. Many non-elected officials thought, no they believed, they were above the law.

We came dangerously close to losing our Republic….

In order to start bringing this country together…former President Obama has to tell the American people the things he did wrong, why he did them, and then pay the price by going to jail for his actions. If we let these acts go unpunished, we will have lost America and I have no idea what America will look like in the future. If we don’t fix things by having people accountable to one set of laws, I can tell you it will no longer be the land of the free and the home of the brave.

See these acts and threats of violence that the Left had already committed in just the past 7 months:

Democrats on House Intelligence Committee took down FISA memo

On February 2, 2018, the House Intelligence Committee (HIC) released the notorious FISA (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act ) memo after President Trump declassified it.

The memo says:

  • The Obama Administration’s FBI and DOJ used the unverified and wholly fictitious Russian dossier to successfully obtain from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court surveillance warrants on Trump and members of his campaign team — which makes the surveillance UNLAWFUL and ILLEGAL.

Note: The Russian dossier, including the wholly fictitious “golden shower” account, was concocted by ex-MI6 spook Christopher Steele, who was hired by “opposition research” company Fusion GPS that, in turn, had been commissioned by the DNC and the Hillary Clinton campaign.

  • Senior law enforcement officials testified during a closed classified session to the HIC, that without the unsubstantiated and wholly-ficitious “Russian dossier” on then-candidate Donald Trump, they would not have been able to obtain at least one surveillance warrant for a member of the Trump campaign.
  • The Obama Administration used Fusion GPS and Steele as part of an active campaign to “brief” (i.e., lie) major media outlets.
  • Steele was no impartial researcher. In September 2016, Steele said to then-Associate Deputy Attorney General Bruce Ohr that he “was desperate that Donald Trump not get elected and was passionate about him not being president.”

But after Americans elected Democrats to a majority in the House of Representatives in last year’s midterm elections, the House Intelligence Committee, with crazy-eye Adam Schiff (D-CA) as chair, has taken down the FISA memo.

The link to the FISA memo on the House Intelligence Committee website now leads to a blank page. See for yourself: https://intelligence.house.gov/uploadedfiles/memo_and_white_house_letter.pdf

Fortunately, netizens had saved and uploaded the FISA memo to ScribD, and I’ve saved it to FOTM.

Here’s the 4-page FISA memo:

Rep. Devin Nunes is preparing criminal referrals re. FBI & FISA to Attorney General Barr

Is this another false hope?

A criminal referral or recommendation is a notice to a prosecutory body, recommending criminal investigation or prosecution of one or more entities for crimes which fall into that body’s jurisdiction.

In the U.S. federal government, agencies that investigate crimes — including the House Intelligence Committee — typically refer cases to the Department of Justice (DOJ) for prosecution at its discretion. The U.S. attorney general heads the DOJ.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), 45, is a farmer with a Master’s degree in agriculture from Cal Poly, who became a politician. His grandparents were immigrants from the Azores, a tiny group of islands more than 800 miles off the coast of Portugal. (See “The Devin Nunes You Don’t Know“)

Nunes is that rare politician who has not sought to exploit his public office for financial gain. Unlike corrupt politicians like Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee with a 2015 net worth of $3.5 million, Nunes’ net worth in 2016 and 2015 was estimated at only $158,001. (Heavy.com)

Congressman Nunes was the chair of the House Intelligence Committee for four years until January 3, 2019. He lost the chairmanship because Americans in the 2018 midterm elections voted a Democratic majority to the House of Representatives. Since then, Nunes still serves on the committee as the senior Republican.

On January 30, 2019, during an interview on Fox News, Nunes said he plans to make criminal referrals as part of an investigation into political bias in the FBI, and that even though he is no longer chairman of the House Intelligence Committee and Democrats have taken control of the House and the committee, that won’t stop GOP investigators from making headway:

“A lot of people think just because Republicans are out of power that we are not conducting an investigation. We still are. Whether or not people will come in and interview with us, we don’t have gavels, we don’t have subpoena power. But we will still be trying to interview people and we will still be making criminal referrals.”

One person who has already been criminally referred to the Justice Department was former UK spook Christopher Steele, the  author of the fake “Russian hooker” Trump dossier. Steele was criminally referred in January 2018 by then-chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), and now-committee chair Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) who succeeded Grassley.

Nunes said on January 30 that to this day Congress has not heard any updates from the DOJ on the Steele referral. Referring to Trump’s AG nominee William Barr, Nunes said it will take a new attorney general to come in and “clean” up before any real progress can be made. (Washington Examiner)

On February 14, 2019, Trump nominee William Barr succeeded Jeff Sessions as the 85th U.S. attorney general.

See Deplorable Patriot’s post, “Attorney General William Barr jumps into the fire“.

On March 1, 2019, at CPAC (Conservative Political Action Conference), Nunes told OANN (0:30 mark):

“We’re still continuing to get to the bottom of what was happening to the Department of Justice and the FBI, trying to make sure that everyone there is held accountable…either through the courts or otherwise…. We’ll be making criminal referrals on a whole host of topics, most importantly probably lying and misleading Congress.”

Five days later, on March 6, 2019, Nunes once again said he’ll be making criminal referrals. He told Fox News’ Sean Hannity (0:03 mark):

We are preparing a criminal referral that we will present to the attorney general at the appropriate time…for many crimes. The obvious ones that you would know about would be lying to Congress. But we will also be looking at FISA [Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act] abuse and all the other matters that we have been looking into. It will probably be one large referral….

We’re probably going to be prepared in the next two to three, four weeks — one of the things that’s coming up. So don’t mind all the shiny balls that you see running around Congress here — the so-called new investigations [by current House Intelligence Committee chair Adam Schiff (D-CA)]. Just ignore that.

What you should be out looking for is next week. On March 14, the federal judge down in Florida has ordered the release of depositions by Christopher Steele, who is supposedly the author of the dossier, and David Kramer, who pled the Fifth to this committee. who we know was handling and moving the dossier around to press outlets…. We [House Intelligence Commitee] had not ever interviewed Christopher Steele, and we don’t know what David Kramer would say because he pled the Fifth. So this could be critical. It may be nothing, but it could be critical for our referral. “

Note: David J. Kramer was nominated by President George W. Bush to be U.S. assistant secretary of state for democracy, human rights, and labor, which he was from 2008 to January 20, 2009. Kramer is currently the senior director for human rights and human freedoms at the (John) McCain Institute, which is funded by the Saudis, Rothschilds, and George Soros. Kramer is a central player in how the fake Trump dossier made its way to the FBI in late 2016. He has invoked his Fifth Amendment right not to testify in connection with questions from the House Intelligence Committee about the anti-Trump dossier’s alleged Russian sources. (Fox News)

Sean Hannity said at the end of his interview with Rep. Nunes (2:16 mark):

“Finally, things are happening, which I’ve been telling you it will.”

Do you believe, too, that things are finally happening?
