Heartfelt thanks to reader Shannon for this response to my “20 questions for James Comey.”  Not only do we get a view from inside the FBI, but we’re also directed to some MUST-READ material, especially the letter to Judge Emmet Sullivan from Robyn Gritz (link below). 

From Shannon:

Brilliant, Gov.  I regretfully worked under Comey and Mueller when Comey was deputy AG and Mueller FBI director, while in the FBI on the War Crime tribunals of Saddam and his former regime.  I am thoroughly disgusted and ashamed.  The DOJ is nothing more than a conduit for corrupt, partisan Clinton holdovers –- lying, cheating, hypocrites who used and abused their office and by doing so sullied the good name and reputation of the men and women they allegedly led.  Prosecution of them –- McCabe, Strzok, Page and myriad others –- would not be good enough.  Read the letter submitted to Judge Sullivan by former SSA Robyn Gritz of the FBI concerning the guilty plea of General Flynn, a verifiable patriot.  I am sick over the fall of our Justice Department and the reprehensible treatment of our President by the left and our corrupt media.

From Me:

Thanks again for writing, Shannon.  While searching online for the letter from Robyn Gritz, I also came across a helpful commentary by Michael Ledeen that references her.  Gritz, for those who don’t know, is the decorated now-retired supervisory agent for the FBI who filed a sexual discrimination lawsuit at the FBI.  When the Bureau, specifically Comey and McCabe, fought it, Flynn voluntarily wrote a letter to the court vouching for her high standards of character.  It’s theorized that this is yet another reason why the higher-ups at the FBI relished the idea of going after Flynn.

Anyway, the commentary by Ledeen covers a lot of the same ground we have but lays it out beautifully.  (One reference in it needs to be updated, however; since Ledeen wrote his piece, the original 302 has reportedly been produced for Judge Sullivan.)  Ledeen also explains what made Flynn such a distinguished military leader; in particular, his transformation of the way we run battlefield intelligence and use it in field operations.  In a nutshell, it was his plan to take battlefield decisions out of the hands of bureaucrats and give them to the men and women in the field.  Sounds as if he was just the kind of leader we would have wanted as Trump’s national security advisor, and it’s our loss that this was not to be.  On the other hand, Flynn also sounds like the kind of person who would make a great chief of staff, if Trump is so inclined.

https://pjmedia.com/michaelledeen/michael-flynns-ordeal-and-ours/

 

Here is that very detailed letter from Robyn Gritz to Judge Sullivan.  Not only does she praise Gen. Flynn to the skies, but she contrasts him sharply with the individuals who targeted him, particularly Andrew McCabe.  She says, “I have known both men (Flynn and McCabe) for 12-13 years and worked with both throughout my career.  They are on the opposite spectrum of each other with regard to truthfulness, temperament and ethics, both professionally and personally.”

 

“It is so very painful to watch an American hero, and my friend, torn apart like this,” she writes to the judge.  Both she and Gen. Flynn had to sell their houses because of the expense of their respective legal battles, and she empathizes greatly.  She furthers the argument made by Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch that “the process is the punishment,” saying, “This process is the one which many FBI employees, current, retired and former, feel was brought to the FBI by Mueller and he subsequently brought this to the Special Counsel Investigation.  It also fostered the behavior by FBI ‘leadership’ which we find ourselves shocked at when revealed on a daily basis...I believe many individuals involved in Mike’s case have lost their way and could care less about protection of due process, civil and legal rights of who they are targeting.”

 

And it goes on at length, very powerfully.  We’ve been wondering when the good people at the FBI were going to speak up about what’s been going on there, and THIS IS IT, right here, in spades.  (Of course, reader Shannon is to be commended for speaking up as well, and there are others.)  This remarkable letter is AN ABSOLUTE MUST-READ.  One can only hope and pray that it helps Judge Sullivan understand exactly what he’s dealing with in his courtroom, in case he hasn't noticed that swamp creatures are leaving slime trails on his floor.

    I appreciate the letter from Sharon and the letter from Robin to the Judge; however, sounds like he didn't read it or didn't listen. I was absolutely appalled by the reports of his actions on the Bench and at the sentencing. If they sentence Flynn, I hope Trump will Pardon him and get rid of this awfulness, except it will never be erased from minds and hearts - except by the Grace of God and Jesus Christ.
    Thank you for sharing and providing access to these.

    I really like the letters and their description of working at the FBI; I am also appalled by these descriptions and some I hear from friends. I worked at the FBI for awhile in the early 60's and these things or anything close would not have been tolerated, even thought JEH was also hated by many.

    It is heart breaking to truly realize what leftist have done to our government workings, our society and our country. How did we live through the 70's, 80's and 90's (in a daze and with apathy) without realizing what was going on, except it was impossible for reasonable people to miss the "misdeeds" of the Clintons. And Bush who did not live up to hopes and expectations, then abdicated his platform and policies (to the Dems) in the end; so disappointing. And thankfully, we survived the Obama "Hope and CHANGE". I hope the events and actions, attitudes and "hateful obstruction" has been and IS a true wakeup call to America, especially conservatives and some independents, but most those who "claim" Christianity, and a Constitutional Republic.

    Thank you Mike for your news and perspective on government and life. Thank you for sharing needed information and links.

    The following is ground zero for FBI corruption, Uranium One & Murder...

    FBI agent Andrew McCabe "investigated" and "found no wrong doing" in the 2016 FBI shooting of Lavoy Finicum... who was protesting the false imprisonment of the Hammonds.. who live on the Steens mountains -- which is the largest source of high-grade uranium in the U.S. Plus the Hammonds had to give BLM first refusal rights to their land as part of their sentencing.

    A year later, FBI SAC Greg Bretzing - who was in charge of killing Finicum - got hired by a uranium transport company, "The Greenbrier Companies" for a "newly created" security director position... coincidence?

    Also coincidental... 3 nurses on duty at the hospital where Finicum's body was taken... had all "committed suicide" within a couple months afterwards. Plus a bystander nearby the shooting and another resident died unexpectedly within the same time period.

    ....Google "Suicided nurses, Harney County".

    For 3 weeks AFTER the Oregon protest ended... the FBI set up multiple roadblocks and repeatedly harassed and abused dozens of ranchers... many elderly... several times a day - everyday.

    They even jerked a 90+ year old woman with Alzheimer's out of a pickup and body-slammed her against it.

    FBI threatened to shoot a man and his mother when he asked them to lay off interrogating her because she recently had a stroke.

    There are at least two other accounts of FBI taunting and threatening men who were trying to get the FBI to stop intimidating their elderly mothers.

    There's other accounts of incidents like this in interviews recorded by Erin Maupin on a May 12, 2016 podcast of Rural Route Radio.

    During the Oregon protest 29 of 41 protesters were actually heavily armed undercover agents & informants... one of which... Fabio Minoggio... staged and filmed a target practice that was later on shown to the jury as "evidence" during the trial.

    2,000 agents took over the town of Burns... many who went undercover acting as militia going around and intimidating residents to create an appearance that the protesters were dangerous.

    During the protest the FBI heard that Grant county sheriff invited the protesters to speak about the constitution, so they set up an illegal roadblock on a blind curve before the county line to stop the protesters from reaching the county line because... as they said in the deposition... Grant county wasn't "United Nations-friendly" and the sheriff would sympathize with the ranchers.

    The FBI even told the assisting state police to not wear any body cams at the roadblock.

    ...A retired Oregon State Police officer.. Dirk Williams.. wrote a open letter to the public where he blasted the FBI and state police for using a "kill box" to murder Finicum and said the police reports were the biggest piece of garbage he ever saw.

    The FBI also had done 5 threat assessments saying the protesters were not dangerous or a threat to be violent... yet FBI & the media created and played up the narrative to treat them as a violent and dangerous threat.

    When the Uranium One scandal resurfaced last year... the FBI came back to Harney county.

    ...No throwing little old ladies around this time.. just surveilling everyone.

    And they're still there.

    Uranium One... via it's subsidiary Oregon Energy, LLC... owns the Aurora mine in nearby Malheur county... about 40 miles from the Steens mountains.

    The Aurora mine is very large and can supply 30% of U.S. uranium needs... other U.S. mines collectively only supply 7%.

    ...However... Aurora is the weakest grade of uranium at only 0.05%U grade... which is too weak to meet fuel requirements for the new small modular reactors invented by Oregon University company NuScale.

    These small modular reactors are needed to accommodate the increased electrical demand of the charging stations for electric vehicles.

    The Steens mountains has an even much larger belt of uranium that's the highest grade at 0.97%U, and would be a convenient source to upblend ore with Aurora's low-grade uranium at their proposed mill to meet fuel requirements for the new reactors.

    The Hammonds have turned down many offers to sell their Steens mountains land to BLM... and are one of the few ranchers left on the Steens mountains who haven't sold out and they have been persecuted ever since.

    In 2001 they called BLM and got permission for a control burn that escaped and burned 137 acres of sage brush... nothing was said to them about it at the time.

    In 2010... the year of the Uranium One deal... the Hammonds were sentenced as arsonist terrorists for the 2001 fire and a 2006 backfire... even though U.S. code 1855 says ranchers cannot be prosecuted for control burns.

    They were sentenced to a little over a year then resentenced to 5 years.

    We hear claims that the 20% uranium sold to Russia "never left the country"... but there are several documents on the Dept. of Energy.gov website that show there was 7,500 metric ton of U.S. uranium exported to Russia 2010 - 2012.

    This info is some of the research which was sent to Washington about a week before the clemency papers first arrived on Trump's desk... it was still another 2 months before the Hammonds were pardoned.. due to much resistance from Trump's cabinet and advisors... except for Roger Stone who adamantly advocated for the Hammonds' release.

    ...maybe that's why Stone is now under investigation... it seems to be a gov't trend for anyone who supports these ranchers.

    After attending Finicum's memorial... I have since been audited for the first time and had my phone tapped as so did my fiance.. who also attended and had both of his phones tapped a few months later. I was told that everyone who attended had their phones tapped by FBI.

    So what is the FBI's point of the ongoing surveillance and tapping of everyone's phones long after the protest & trials ended?

    Do they surveil Antifa and Ferguson residents this intensely as well?

    ... or do they have something else to hide?

    Recently there's been numerous fatal and near fatal accidents of residents in Harney county and a fatal crash near Portland of a outspoken supporter of the Hammonds, Leo Stratton.

    There's Wooten's whistleblower email that exposed a lot of malfeasance within the FBI & BLM... including a "kill book" where BLM agent bragged about pushing Dr. Redd and two informants to suicide in Utah in 2009.

    FBI agent Greg Bretzing was also head of that investigation which lead to the persecution of Dr. Redd over false allegations of artifacts trafficking.

    There's a second Wooten email that makes that first one look like a fairytale... but judge Navarro has it under seal. She also has sealed 3,000 pages of exculpatory evidence that the prosecution willfully withheld in the Bundy trial that was dismissed.

    ....I wonder how much more damage these sealed documents & email can do to the FBI & their co-conspirators?

    Also check out this large coalition of billionaires like Soros, Zuckerberg, Gates, Bezos, Steyer, Bloomberg, GE, et al... who want to change the way we live and eat with their "Breakthrough Energy Ventures"... they invest in uranium, small modular reactors and fake meat companies..

    http://www.b-t.energy/coalition/who-we-are/

    Bezos also owns AWS Strategic Region... a surveillance software system used by the CIA.

    I have documents, links, audios, etc. to cite all this... if you want to see more, email me for more info.

    Thank you for you time,

    I believe what we saw today was actually Judge Sullivan trying to help Mike Flynn. I think he knows he is being strong armed to plead guilty to guiltless crime. Muellers team is threatening him with 60 years. Indictments to family if he doesn’t. It was clear when the judge demanded original 302c Mueller brought out the indictments for the 2 associates to send Flynn a warning. That’s how he manipulates people.

    Judge Sullivan really embarrassed himself , his position and reputation by today's incoherent courtroom behavior. He seems determined to further entrap Flynn, by trying to get him to vacate his guilty plea, very strange behavior for a judge. Wonder what Mueller threatened him with. So discouraging to see the courts used as pawns by these corrupt and vile people, the rule of law was erased today!

    What does the future hold for America
    As the Scriptures proclaim, “blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord” (Ps. 33:12). American history is impossible to understand without understanding its founding vision to be a city on a hill and a light to nations.
    And as America sought to fulfill this vision, it was blessed more than any other nation in the world. By the end of the eighteenth century it had won independence from the world’s greatest military power and ratified its Constitution. By the close of the nineteenth century the United States spanned an entire continent, from the Atlantic to the Pacific. In the twentieth century the United States became the world’s most powerful nation, both economically and militarily.
    America blessed the world by sending out more missionaries, bringing in more refugees, producing more food and other essentials, creating more technological marvels, and defeating more tyrants – fascist and communist alike – than any country in history. And as America blessed the Jewish people by providing them refuge and the new state of Israel with recognition and support, God honored His pledge in Genesis 12:3 to bless those who bless His people.
    THE FALL
    From the days of the Puritans onward, America’s forerunners had warned what would happen if America turned firmly from her foundations by turning against God. About 170 years later, John Adams warned, “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people”.
    Yet despite these warnings, America repeated the pattern of Israel’s northern kingdom and experienced an equally dramatic moral and spiritual decline. The seeds were sown nearly a century ago, as the leaders of America’s historic churches began to embrace radical skepticism snd doubt the Bible as God’s Word. These seeds grew into a belief that “religion” was a private subjective matter, not an objective public concern. In 1963 the US supreme Court decided to ban public prayer, the first of a series of major steps taken to drive God out of the nation’s public life.
    As respect for God’s Word and ways declined, so did America’s culture. The assault on the American family began with rising divorce rates and continued with skyrocketing out-of-wedlock births and finally the drive to redefine marriage, family, and sin itself. Across society the desire for ceaseless entertainment and instant gratification overrode self-discipline and values, fueling an explosion in pornography, sexual promiscuity, and drug addiction, along with the revival of pagan occult practices under the banner of New Age movements.
    In 1973 the Supreme Court decreed “abortion on demand” to be the law of the land. As Israel sacrificed thousands of its children on the altars of Baal and Molech, so now America sacrifices millions of unborn on the altar of personal choice. Christians and others who protest this rising tide of apostasy are increasingly mocked, ridiculed, marginalized, and ostracized. As Israel had done thousands of years earlier, now America does. It calls good “evil” and evil “good”.
    What happened to ancient Israel is now happening in America. Our nation has forgotten its Godly beginnings, trusting in God’s blessings rather than on the God of all blessings.
    John Witherspoon, a signer of the Declaration of Independence, had warned precisely against this temptation with these words, “While we give praise to God……for His interposition on our behalf, let us guard against…
    trusting in, or boasting of, an arm of flesh.”
    As America patterned itself after Israel in its conception, so now it follows the pattern of Israel’s fall. Today, Israel’s ancient northern kingdom is but a footnote in history. Without revival and restoration, America risks a similar fate.

    This whole situation with our Government has become a joke. I would doubt that any other Government in our history was ever this corrupt with so many from one Party to be found guilty of even treason . What makes this so bad is that all the guilty people are still walking around free to continue their criminal acts when they were mostly found guilty by the evidence. The sad part is when you have the bulk of the corruption at the top tier and they are expert in hiding the facts and re-writing statutes you can see how easy it is to be crooked and get away with it. I guess when you work for Government "Crime does Pay" and pay really good.

Now all of a sudden President Trump has a foundation that needs to be closed because all of a sudden after all these years, his campaign, his term in office they are claiming that President Trump and his children have issues. What Nonsense! The Attotney General from NY said she Vows to get back at Trump. Secondly I remind you that Hillary Clinton was a NY Senator for how many years? The Democrats simply do not want to face the truth! No one wanted Hillary. They want to blame anyone and everyone they can.
