House Judiciary Committee subpoenas AG Sessions for McCabe, FISA and Russian investigation documents

A week ago on September 27, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) subpoenaed Attorney General Jeff Sessions for three documents. The deadline for Sessions to produce those documents is tomorrow.

In his letter notifying Sessions of the subpoena, Goodlatte wrote:

Given the [Justice] Department’s ongoing delays and/or refusal to produce these documents, I am left with no choice but to issue the enclosed subpoena to compel their production.

The Subpoena states that on October 4, 2018, at 12:00 p.m., Sessions is “hereby commanded to be and appear before the Committee on the Judiciary of the House of Representatives” to produce three documents “in un-redacted form”:

(1) The McCabe Memos: “All documents and communications” written by former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe “to memorialize discussions, meetings, or correspondence he had with senior government officials, including the President of the United States.

The McCabe Memos include:

  • Real-time debriefs from former FBI Director James Comey after his meetings with Trump.
  • A memo on the May 16, 2017 meeting where Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein allegedly suggested he would wear a wire to secretly tape President Trump, which would then be used to enlist Cabinet members to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office. McCabe and former FBI counsel Lisa Page were among several people in the room. (Fox News)

Note: Michael Bromwich, who is now an attorney representing Christine Blasey Ford, Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s accuser, was Andrew McCabe’s attorney.

(2) The Woods File: includes (a) the application for a FISA (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act) order authorizing surveillance on Carter Page; and (b) “any document concerning or relating to any attempt to verify the accuracy of any alleged facts stated in the FISA applications for Mr. Page.”

Carter Page is a petroleum industry consultant and a former foreign-policy adviser to Donald Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign. He has been a focus of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s two-year investigation into alleged links between Trump and Russia to interfere in the 2016 election.

(3) Russian interference: “All documents and communications shared with the Gang of Eight in May 2018 related to the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.”

On May 24, 2018, FBI and Justice Department officials briefed the bipartisan group of lawmakers known as the “Gang of 8” on classified documents related to Special Counsel Mueller’s Russia investigation. The “Gang of 8” are:

  1. Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC), Chair of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence.
  2. Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY), Senate Majority Leader.
  3. Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), Chair of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.
  4. Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), House Minority Leader.
  5. Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI), House Speaker.
  6. Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee.
  7. Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY), Senate Minority Leader.
  8. Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA), Vice Chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee.

Christine Blasey Ford and the Hillary Clinton Connection

During the 2016 presidential campaign on August 21, rabid anti-Trumper Cher hosted a fundraiser for Hillary Clinton at the Pilgrim Monument & Museum in Provincetown, Cape Cod.

The fundraiser, attended by a cheering crowd of about 1,000 useful idiots, netted $1.5 million for Hillary’s campaign coffers. (Cape Cod Times)

Below is a pic of Hillary, dressed in a hospital-gownlike smock, leaving the event.

Note the dark-haired woman behind Hillary.

In 2016, we’d assumed the woman was just some anonymous Hillary flunky.

But wait!

She’s no flunky.

That woman is none other than Debra Katz, Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford’s attorney. (H/t Neon Revolt)

Wikipedia describes Debra Katz as follows:

Debra S. Katz is a civil rights and employment lawyer and a founding partner of Katz, Marshall & Banks in Washington, DC. Katz was raised in a Jewish family on Long Island…. Katz represents Christine Blasey Ford, professor at Palo Alto University, who in September 2018 alleged that U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her in the early 1980s, when they were both teenagers.

According to Slate, Debra Katz “is known for her work representing sexual harassment and abuse victims”. Both Katz and Ford’s other attorney, Michael Bromwich (whom Wikipedia describes as also “raised in a Jewish family”) are representing the Kavanaugh accuser pro bono, despite the fact that Christine Blasey Ford has received more than half a million ($528,315) in GoFundMe donations.

What both Slate and Wikipedia neglected to tell us is that Debra Katz is also a Hillary Clinton operative.

One of Wikileaks‘ Podesta emails shows that Debra Katz was an early fundraiser for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. The email, intended for Clinton, stated that as of November 2015 Katz had raised over $29,000.

In Katz, we see the hidden hand of Hillary in the ongoing machinations to take down Judge Brett Kavanaugh.

Hillary Clinton had done this before. In 2016, her pal, Esprit Clothing founder Susie Tompkins Buell, paid $500,000 in an unsuccessful effort to fund women accusing Trump of sexual misconduct. (Fox News)

UPDATE (Sept. 30):

Snopes claims that the woman with Hillary was Barbara Kinney.

Not true: Kinney has a bulbous nose; Debra Katz and the woman in the pic with Hillary has a thin, pointy nose.

Barbara Kinney (l) is not the woman with Hillary (r)
