April 30, 2018

Just a couple of days ago, I linked to a story about California Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s former chief intelligence staffer Daniel Jones’ hiring of political dirt-digging operation Fusion GPS and highly imaginative fiction writer Christopher Steele. His purpose: to continue providing “information” about Trump/Russia collusion to the press and “policymakers on Capitol Hill” –- AFTER President Trump’s election. But this story smells so bad, it’s time to put on the nose clips and do a more in-depth examination of how rotten it is.

According to a declassified House Intelligence Committee report, “seven to ten” wealthy donors from California and New York were funding this effort, with the purpose of furthering the made-up narrative that the Trump campaign had been working with Russia. The report confirms a story from February by Sean Davis at The Federalist that revealed Jones was directing a scheme to continue trying to discredit Trump after the election. We can glean a lot from this story, including the reassuring fact that there are still a few actual journalists around.

This looks baaaaaaad. But guess what? It’s much worse. Feinstein, Jones’ former boss, is ranking Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, which has been investigating Fusion GPS, and, unbelievably, she never disclosed her association with Jones. (I’ll let that sink in for a moment. Ready to continue?) Now recall that Feinstein had already committed a deliberate breach of committee policy by releasing –- all by her lonesome –- a transcript of the testimony by Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson. So maybe it shouldn’t surprise anyone that she’s on the hot seat again for failing to disclose a spectacular conflict of interest involving Fusion GPS.

Now, tighten the nose clips, because it’s about to get smellier. Why stop with one investigative committee? There’s more to Davis’ report that implicates at least one Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee as well. As it happens, Jones was also in communication with Sen. Mark Warner, ranking Democrat on that committee, in his effort to try to lend credibility to the infamous Trump/Russia dossier.

It gets even worse; in fact, here’s where it’s just impossible to hold your nose tightly enough to keep from being overcome with fumes. According to text messages obtained by the Daily Caller, Jones contacted a man named Adam Waldman, a registered foreign agent for Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska, who was, in turn, in touch with Sen. Warner. Jones reached out to Waldman on March 15, 2017, telling him that he was with a new nonprofit group called the Democratic Integrity Project (I’ll wait while you fall on the floor laughing helplessly), and that “Chris” wanted them to connect. The two got together the next day. Later that day, Jones texted Waldman that “Chris Steele asked me to call you.”

Jones sent Waldman examples of anti-Trump stories on various topics that his group had helped plant in media outlets such as Reuters.

Commentary continues below advertisement

The Senate Intelligence Committee heard testimony from Waldman back on November 3 of last year, in which he disclosed that Jones had told him he had been working with Fusion GPS and that “a group of Silicon Valley billionaires and George Soros” were funding the project.

According to the House report, Jones told the FBI way back in March, 2017, about his group --- actual name: Penn Quarter Group --- and described his activities to “continue exposing Russian interference,” revealing he’d been provided approximately $50 million by wealthy donors located primarily on the East and West coasts. The FBI has obviously known about them all this time.

So, let’s see. Before the 2016 election, the “dossier” was secretly funded, through channels, by Hillary Clinton and the DNC. There has never been one bit of evidence to support the salacious accusations in it. Trump was elected despite their efforts, sending Democrats into a desperate frenzy that led them to continue trying to discredit him any way they could. One of their chosen methods: build on the fake “Russian collusion” narrative by continuing the work with Fusion GPS and Chris Steele --- and by involving people actually associated with powerful Russians. And the FBI has been aware of Jones’ work and his sources of funding for over a year.

By now it’s clear who was really colluding with Russians. Not Donald Trump. It was the Democrats working to bring him down, with the apparent knowledge and consent of highly-placed investigative committee members. As we’ve said for a long time, if you want to know what the Democrats are up to, just look at what they’re accusing others of doing. Remember that the next time you see Rep. Adam Schiff or Sen. Warner rushing to the TV cameras. Where’s a good pie-thrower when you need one?

    How do we speak up repetitively to gather a crowd and demand they start being investigated?

  • Colette Wagner

    When is this crap going to end? Millions of dollars spent on an investigation that should have never started. The thing I don't understand the most is that they have come out and said there was no collusion and yet they are still investigating. They have seriously over-reached their original investigation and are now just going after him because they lost. This is ridiculous and another strong reason for term limits. They have collectively lost any brain cells they had when they got there. This is some serious taxation without representation.

    One thing is very clear, chopping off the head of the snake at the FBI, twice, has left the FBI cover up mechanism fully intact. I'm tired of hearing about the "good people in the trenches" at the FBI, it's looking like there's massive corruption encompassing many levels, and spreading outside of DC. Mueller snapped his fingers and Cohen was raided in a gestapo like manner, from the New York office. This is the FBI, not the Third Reich. Am I comparing the FBI to Hitler? Absolutely! Like I've said before, fire the top 10% of the highest paid FBI employees and depose them all, some one will sing. If that doesn't work, rinse and repeat. We could be on round 4 or 5 by now and would have some answers, and possibly a few DOJ and FBI employees in jail. Would the democrats go insane? Of course, they do that everyday, anyway. They're afraid of the New Third Reich they created being exposed.

    Mike, My Gosh when will we start seeing major prosecutions of all these liberal crooked Democrats. Can you get a message to President Trump to fire Jeff Sessions, because he truly seems to be having a blind eye to all this. Did you hear the latest about Dr. Penn who is Vice President Mike Pences doctor, she is the one who told lies about President Trumps doctor. What the heck is going on inside our government. Can you organize a rally against this massive corruption, we need to protest loud and clear

    I have stopped watching the major news shows because I know they are slanting everything to be against conservative values and President Trump. I have mentioned this to friends and they say they don't watch the news either. We might watch for a few minutes to get the weather reports, but most of the news comes from you.

    Thank you for all the truth that you bring forth, we’d never get it otherwise. We are praying for you and ,“ my all time hero, Sarah!! May God continue to protect and bless your family in Jesus’ mighty name.
    Senators Feinstein and Warner are just a broad example of this narcacistic minion club that represent the Dems. Corruption abounds so badly in Virginia that we moved out of there. It’s a real spiritual battle in high places. Tell Sarah we love her but God loves her more. Thank you!!

    Can anyone say, "truth is stranger than fiction?" Pardon me while I ask the Lord to waste their $50 million and expose every last one of them for their illegal activity! Please, tell me it was all illegal and we have enough evidence to remove some of these folks from office and put a few billionaires in the pokey... PLEASE

    I appreciate and reply on your information, as I know it's reliable and I search no further.
    This will continue on till Presidential Election time I imagine, and will cook up another witch hunt.
    Thank you for your article, and kudos for your daughter having the class she was raised to have,
    I know the apple didn't fall far from the tree. :) She could have probably ripped them a new one, but she

    Please convey to your daughter, Sarah- my support of her reaction to the horrendous attack by that women - Michelle Wolf- she handled it with restraint & decorum & total professionalism- Your daughter is a real American role for women in this country- she handles the Press with honesty, integrity, candor & knowledge. A person of loyalty to the President & her conservative values- so very impressed with her strength in handling adversity in this nasty hateful political climate. Please give her my praise & personal support & encouragement.

    Such an enormous waste of taxpayer monies...when will any of these jerks go to prison for this unnecessary expenditure of time and money? These people are crooks and it's only going to get worse. They need to have an example made of them....WE THE PEOPLE need to cry FOUL and have a hearing on where they spend the next 5-10 years of their life, losing their pensions, their health insurance, etc and hopefully the DEMOcrates will think twice before becoming involved in this type of obscenely devious behavior.

    Our whole system relies on an informed and at least reasonably intelligent voters. We don't have that in the liberal community. This is a group of low info and indoctrinated useful idiots. The Democratic party as currently constituted relies on people who are convinced that successful people are their enemies. Achievement is seen as a bad thing and being a sloth and bloodsucking is good. Socialism in all its forms is insiduous and leads to the downfall of societies. The LIbs want to import people who will not assimilate and thus lead to a steady diminution of America as founded. This country began this decline when the radicals of the 60's became our business and civics leaders.

I can't help but wonder if any of this 'resistance' borders bet your booties if this had been aimed against obama-lama-ding-dong a stop would have been put to it pronto!!

    Jeff Sessions works for the President why doesn't he order him to investigate all of this crap and if he won't fire him. He needs to go anyway he is part of the sewer they are all protecting Hillary and Obama and Soros. It's all a big cover up and the President needs to do his job or get fired

    I know politics have been dirty in the past, but this is crazy. The left has abandoned any thread of decency and fair play. They have become the fascist fanatics they have accused the republican party of becoming. I do not see anything good in any of this since the democrats as a whole feel they are justified and there doesn't seem to be anyone willing to hold any of them accountable. I do not have much hope for the nation if things are allowed to continue as they are. The traitors to this country are well known but are allowed to continue to live and work to bring down this nation with impunity. I just can't understand it.

    I was thinking about the brief 20 minute meeting Trumps son had with that Russian lawyer in Trump Tower. I bet that meeting was set up by the democrats knowing nothing would come of it, but show he was involved in meddling with Russia. I truly believe it was a set up meeting by the democrats unbeknown to the Trumps.

    The stench has become so overwhelming that it is a wonder it has not made the developers of it faint! HOW//WHY is this allowed to continue?? As a 93-year old widow of a WW2 veteran, I find it very hard to see this happening in our country! Surely there has to be some way to stop this corruption and bring to trial those who continue trying to destroy us by such devious means. God help us! And may God protect our President and Vice-President and their families. Also, Mike, may God protect you as you reveal all of this to us.

    Why does this keep going on and on and no one is held accountable? Our government and elected leaders for the most part are a joke to Americans and the world.

    when will Trump build a wall on the southern border of - - - MEXICO ? ? ? ? ? ? ?

    it'd be cheaper to build a 700 mile wall there in place of a 2100 mile wall on southern border of USA ! ! ! ! ! ! !

    and policing the Mexican wall with Guatamala/Belize will be more effective since it'll be Mexico and not US Border Patrol enforcing it and since Mexican law already forbids illegal aliens ! ! ! ! ! ! !

    And why aren't these people being held accountable? What is wrong with this country? Anyone can do or say anything to disparage someone and NO ONE gets any repercussions from it or held accountable in any way. There has got to be a way to get all those creeps out of congress/senate---including Republicans that are only there for the money now--they could care less about America. Why is the Convention of States taking so long and is that the ONLY way to drain the swamp? Thanx for letting me vent. Keep up the good work. I totally admire how your daughter handled herself at that creepy vile Correspondence Dinner. Ya'll are upright peeps! Darla Faulks
