Top FBI lawyer James Baker flips; says Russia investigation politically biased

The White House insider known as Q or Q Anon has been hinting at an imminent political turning point he calls “Red October”.

Yesterday afternoon came news that the FBI has completed investigating Brett Kavanaugh, the agency’s 7th investigation of the judge, and a full Senate vote is expected this weekend.

Today was the deadline for Attorney General Jeff Sessions to hand in McCabe, FISA and Russian investigation documents subpoenaed by the House Judiciary Committee.

Add this to hopeful signs of a “Red October”.

Catherine Herridge reports for Fox News that former top FBI lawyer James Baker gave “explosive” closed-door testimony yesterday, Oct. 3, detailing for congressional investigators how Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe was handled in an “abnormal fashion” reflecting “political bias,” according to two Republican lawmakers present for the deposition — Rep. Mark Meadows (North Carolina) and Rep. Jim Jordan (Ohio).

James A. Baker, who as General Counsel of the FBI had a close working relationship with former FBI Director James Comey and was a recipient of at least one Comey memo, resigned from the bureau in May this year.

Meadows and Jordan would not provide many specifics about the private transcribed interview of James Baker, citing a confidentiality agreement with Baker and his attorneys. However, the two Congressmen indicated in broad terms that Baker was cooperative and forthcoming about the genesis of the Russia case in 2016, and about the FISA surveillance warrant application for Trump campaign aide Carter Page in October 2016.

Rep. Mark Meadows said, “Some of the things that were shared were explosive in nature. This witness [Baker] confirmed that things were done in an abnormal fashion. That’s extremely troubling.” Indeed, Peter Strzok, the FBI agent who opened the Russia case, FBI lawyer Lisa Page and others had sent politically charged texts, and have since left the bureau.

Rep. Jim Jordan said, “During the time that…DOJ and FBI were putting together the FISA (surveillance warrant)…prior to the election — there was another source giving information directly to the FBI, which we found the source to be pretty explosive.”

Meadows and Jordan would not elaborate on the source, or answer questions about whether the source was a reporter. They did stress that the source who provided information to the FBI’s Russia case was not previously known to congressional investigators.

Baker is at the heart of surveillance abuse allegations, and his deposition lays the groundwork for next week’s planned closed-door interview with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. Baker, as the FBI’s top lawyer, helped secure the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant on Page, as well as three subsequent renewals. Prior to the deposition, Republican investigators said they believed Baker could explain why information about Christopher Steele (the British ex-spy behind the concocted Trump-“golden shower” dossier) and Steele’s apparent bias against then-candidate Trump, was withheld from the FISA court, and whether other exculpatory information was known to Rosenstein when he signed the final FISA renewal for Page in June 2017.

For his part, Rosenstein is expected on Capitol Hill on Oct. 11 for a closed-door interview. It comes after the New York Times reported last month that he’d discussed secretly recording President Trump in order to remove him from office using the 25th Amendment.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders told reporters Wednesday the meeting between Rosenstein and President Trump remains in limbo: “If there’s a meeting, we’ll let you know. But at this point, they continue to work together and both show up every day and do their jobs.”

Good. Expose them all and end this (another) charade.

The sad part is that it was obvious from the outset. Giving a special counsel carte blanch is insane. It was totally unnecessary to begin with. At the outset it is important to clarify who the Attorney General and the FBI work for. Their game plan was, and continues to be, constant interference. That is why it is seditious. Deliberately disrupting the conduct of government business is not what an “opposition party” is all about. For some insane reason the leftists seem to think that Hillary is “entitled”. Why would she be and why would that be a good idea?… Read more »

“Their game plan was, and continues to be, constant interference. That is why it is seditious. Deliberately disrupting the conduct of government business is not what an “opposition party” is all about.” Yes, and it’s worse than the GOP’s plan to merely block Obama and his administration; today’s Left wants to actually *take down* the GOP, *maliciously*, through any means necessary, to re-gain control of the country. It’ll be interesting to see how the November elections go. I’d LOVE to see the MSM’s predictions for a blue wave go bust the same way they’d all predicted a Hillary White House!… Read more »

@Lophatt. “For some insane reason the leftists seem to think that Hillary is “entitled”.” A sense of entitlement The liberal movement amounts to nothing more than making excuses to legitimize a platform of laziness and entitlements. We’ve seen these in campus protests, minimum wage protests, anti-Wall Street, anti-capitalism protests, and advocates of perpetual welfare. Their solution to counter corporate greed is to steal from those that have worked hard to attain their level of wealth, and give to those who refuse to reach such a work ethic. ‘Tax the Rich’ anyone? Money for nothing, or entitlement, seems to be a… Read more »

I know Trump’s busy, but I would have hauled his sorry butt into the Oval Office a lot sooner and given him his walking papers and said, “Don’t let the door hit ya where the Good Lord split ya!”

I know that I’ve never been in that position, but I’ve been in similar positions. Sometimes one has to exercise a little “tough love” to get one’s job done. Letting all of those arrogant swamp creatures ridicule and ignore him was not a good idea. A President needs a cadre of loyal helpers that keep their ears and eyes open. Instead of the President having to worry about “leakers” the swamp creatures should be worrying about what happens if they’re found out. They have conspired against Trump like no other before him. I read a piece by a leftist claiming… Read more »

I’ve stopped following the Russia witch hunt. There’s SO much CRUSHING evidence of Democrat/FBI corruption that it’s STAGGERING. And yet we allow it to continue totally unchecked. The money BURNS…the concept of American Justice BURNS…the rules set out by the Constitution BURN.

And whenever we find even MORE PROOF of the absolute ROT undermining this whole charade…we act like it’s a huge revelation…and then sit back and allow it to continue on!

FARCICAL.

Yep. They just classified their Uranium deal. They’ve buried Benghazi. We all know about this. Any one of them should bring prison time.

As a student of history…I see that this will all go “down” as a renewed/modern “McCarthy-ism.” What WASTE of time, treasure, emotion, effort……as we have found previously through our low points in history. Also—can NOT BELIEVE day after day…..try to find otherwise….BUT—REPUBLICANS….NOT THE DIMOCRATS….were the party of LINCOLN…the party of ABOLITIION…the party of CIVIL RIGHTS….and the DIMOCRATS have been and IMO, still are, the party of oppression of our minorities….the party who ,even up into the 1960’s and beyond…BLOCKED civil rights for any and all of any color or race…….. and the party that NOW, runs a political “plantation” to… Read more »

The worldwide criminal fraud was presented to Pope Benedict XVI in Rome by Anna Maria Riezinger during 2008. He took immediate action after recovering from distress, turning white as his gown and outraged that no one in the Roman Curia informed him. Keep in mind the criminal fraud commenced with Benjamin Disraeli and Queen Victoria. In 2017, a friend of President Trump contacted Anna Maria Riezinger to request she write a book so the President would have a comprehensive picture of the humongous criminakl fraud since the 1860s. It’s a 60 page book set up in one-page, 30-seconds each page,… Read more »

Yes indeed, so pleased to hear Steele notified you. Here’s another with FOTM link. https://annavonreitz.com/kavanaugh.pdf This was published September 17, 2018.
