Trump Asks Why Intelligence Committee Isn't Probing The Clintons

Tyler Durden's picture

Following a day of drama involving the Chair of the House Intelligence Committee, Devin Nunes, who has been under constant onslaught by Democrats ever since his disclosure last week that Trump had indeed been the object of surveillance, and whose Democrat peer at the Intel panel, Adam Schiff, on Monday night called for Nunes to recuse himself, moments ago Trump waded into the news cycle when he asked on Twitter why the House Intelligence Committee is not investigating the Clintons for various ties of their own to Russia. He then slammed the ongoing anti-Russian witch hunt, saying "the Russia story is a hoax."

“Why isn't the House Intelligence Committee looking into the Bill & Hillary deal that allowed big Uranium to go to Russia, Russian speech, money to Bill, the Hillary Russian ‘reset,’ praise of Russia by Hillary, or Podesta Russian Company. Trump Russia story is a hoax. #MAGA!” Trump wrote in two tweets Monday night.

Trump's rhetorical questions come amid a news cycle which as discussed on various occasions today has focused on the Republican chair of the Intel Committee, Nunes, who is under fire for briefing Trump about classified material he reviewed last week without sharing the information with committee Democrats. On Monday it was revealed that Nunes had secretly visited the White House grounds one day before announcing incidental surveillance of President Trump’s transition team. His visit raised questions about whether the White House could have been was the source of the intelligence Nunes reviewed.

Democratic lawmakers have now called on Nunes to recuse himself from the committee’s probe into Russia’s interference in the United States presidential election. Nunes on Monday evening said the chairman would not step aside from the investigation.

The republican lawmaker has claimed that his findings had no relevance to the Russia probe, even as the committee examines the unmasking and leaking of surveillance information as part of that investigation.

In a follow up tweet, Trump took another stab at the House Freedom Caucus, who he said snatched "defeat from the jaws of victory" - following Friday's failure to repeal and replace plan for ObamaCare.  That followed a Sunday tweet in which he said the conservative House Freedom Caucus, along with the Club for Growth and Heritage Action for America, had “saved” Planned Parenthood and ObamaCare.

Finally, Trump brought it full circle, touching on Friday's failure to repeal Obamacare, saying "the Democrats will make a deal with me on healthcare as soon as ObamaCare folds - not long. Do not worry, we are in very  good shape!

While the toilet bowl "approval polls" show something like -!DIV0 or -inf or -NaN, all that you need to know is this. EXACTLY. Trump is a hit-hit-hit-miss-hit-hit-hit-hit-hit-miss-hit kind of guy.

particularly correcting for money, media and zionists (but which didn't help hillary), putin should be a bit surprised at how events are going his way, even if one wouldn't know it from the nyt or the wapo.

one question: if the puts bought against united and american airlines before 9/11 are such an obvious tell, and they are, why were they bought?  certainly no one cashed any of them.  how about an indelible marker that will say to all time: these events are not what they seem.  the squirrelly mark.  also a bit of life insurance. gives that lawyer envelope some credibility

This is something that each of you have got to repeat over and over, as you are being conditioned with propaganda that the GOP can not govern, are idiots etc...., when the reality is Paul Ryan tried to create an Obamacare to loot America for his Chamber of Commerce interests with the full intention if it did not work, to smear the Freedom Caucus to destroy them politically.

........and if it did work in being passed, to use this to destroy Donald Trump politically, as Ryan has been ordered and fixated on in ruling the GOP his way, as that is what Ryan was engaged in, in trying to defeat Donald Trump in the election.

Everything Paul Ryan did was deliberate and planned out. It is not as Sean Hannity keeps saying that they had 8 years to plan this and then could not get it done right. PAUL RYAN GOT DONE EXACTLY WHAT HE INTENDED as that is what was written for him and what was produced.

Now the oligarchs have President Trump exactly where they want him, in vulnerable and having to deal with the GOPliters in Congress to turn Donald Trump into Jeb Bush as Obama's 3rd term.

There is war coming, as the CIA in Pompeo, ran a riot operation against Vladimir Putin in Russia, and kept the President in the dark. Events are now designed to overtake President Trump, and all he has left are the manipulators and the inept in his inner circle.
The President is now at war with his base. The Conservative Christians and their political leaders are the focus of this to which the President has been manipulated to.

None of this is by accident. It is all by design, just as certain as the Russian hacking was an inside the US intelligence deep state operation to generate that war with Russia.

President Trump is not receiving the correct input. His cabinet for the most part is very good, but what is revolving around the President is this whirlpool sucking him down to the exact Obama positions to keep America crippled, and the only salvation to cover up all of this embezzling by Obama is a war with Russia.

The Mockingbird has been attempting to divert you, and most of you have been placed in that box of confusion. All you need to know is Paul Ryan did this by design with assistance from Reince Priebus, Katie Walsh and Mike Pence. The President is now exactly where they want him. He has turned to his inept family members in Ivanka and Jared Kushner.
If you observe this manipulation of the President, it is his family that this deep state has chosen to manipulate him, and will carry it to extremes.

The Freedom Caucus has saved the GOP and all Americans for a moment, but this presidency is listing and being dragged to the rocks, to be given only one choice as other Presidents were offered, in war.

Well think about it for a minute, some one accuses you of a crime, which would be the best reaction? To point back at that person and say that they are also a criminal and should be investigated? doesn't carry much wait. Or how about pointing out to the media, and the general population the criminal acts the orther person has committed and ask why they have not been investigated for their past crimes? Then stand back and let the questions start, and allow it to run its course.  Not much has changed over the years, it is still the mob rules, and Trump understands this.

The thing is jeff, this entire investigation is typical prog bullshit.

Podesta IS in fact a registered foreign agent. He and his brother run the Podesta Group which lobbies on behalf of anyone who gives them money. He has in fact been "dealing with the Russians", from their largest banks to uranium. He was in a position to take out Hillary by virtue of him being her campaign manager. He protected email account with a password called...password?...lol.

As far as the dimz in toto, there was no reason for Sessions to recuse himself. He met with the Russian ambassador in his office with staff and another time at a conference as I recall, it was all known and the dimz jump on him for not thinking PUBLICLY KNOWN MEETINGS were what that idiot Frankel was talking about? Frankel should have been more specific something along the lines of "Besides these two meetings..." and because Sessions has more honor & integrity in his pinky finger than Frankel contains in his entire body he does "the right thing" and recuses himself from any further participation? 

They are fucking snakes totally uninterested in finding the truth and only interested in obstructing any avenue of investigation that doesn't lead to Trump. 

I say as part of this investigation why don't they subpoena Hillary and put her under oath, they can ask her what was her purpose of sending Podesta out to concede her loss to Trump when this is normally done by the losing candidate, meaning her. What did she know then? She can be asked at what point did she learn Podesta is a registered foreign agent.

She can be asked UNDER OATH if Podesta had access to her bathroom email server as well ;-)

Kushner in Jail for what?

Do you know what those sanctions were?

Do you know if there is any lawful punishment for an 'individual' dealing with a country under sanctions.

Is it a criminal offence to meet with a business?

What crime was committed, what was it that was done?

Do you realise the Clintons and members of their team had meetings and dealings with Russians at the same time?

 

You see ...you are full of shit.  Stop licking Clinton's for a little while and realise that it was probably her that was taking money from Russians for Uranium, or is that ok by you?   The Clintons and all their servants probably should be the ones in jail don't you think??

Here's what they are calling "circumstantial evidence"

"Michael Flynn was a Turkish foreign agent during the Presidential campaign. He also received money from Russia, and the Army is investigating whether he was in fact a Russian agent as well. During this time, and while a private citizen, he negotiated with the Russian ambassador about lifting U.S. sanctions against Russia. Revelations of these negotiations (and his deceit about their existence) prompted his resignation as National Security Advisor.

Paul Manafort, prior to being head of Donald Trump’s campaign, was a long-time political operative for a Russian oligarch, for the (pro-Russian) Ukrainian government, and for Ferdinand Marcos’ regime in the Philippines. He is the subject of a Ukrainian investigation into receiving illegal payments and money laundering.

On April 27th, Trump, several of his senior aides, and the ambassadors of Russia, Italy, Singapore, and the Philippines met at the Mayflower Hotel. Shortly afterwards, Trump gave his first foreign policy speech, with a strongly pro-Russian message. The speech was written by Richard Burt, a former Russian oil lobbyist.

In July, the Steele Dossier reported that Putin had offered Trump the brokerage on 19% of Rosneft in exchange for lifting U.S. sanctions against Russia. This information was impossible to verify at the time and received little attention.
Also starting in July, a sequence of leaks of information stolen in computer hacks of the

DNC and Clinton campaign were released at strategic moments, such as just before the Democratic Convention and just before the general election. Several branches of the U.S. government stated that these hacks were executed by Russian intelligence, and Obama imposed sanctions on Russia in retaliation.

In early December, 19.5% of the Russian state oil company Rosneft was sold to a web of shell companies, with Italy, Singapore, and Qatar acting as brokers. The Qatari brokers said that they received 0.54% of the company as their commission. The actual owners of the remaining 19% are unknown. During the same dates, Michael Flynn, Jared Kushner, and Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak were having secret meetings at Trump Tower.

Jeff Sessions, then a U.S. Senator and senior Trump campaign member, and now Attorney-General, lied to Congress by saying that he did not meet with representatives of the Russian government during the campaign. After he admitted this and disclosed the meetings, the disclosures did not include the Mayflower Meeting, even though the event organizer has stated unequivocally that Sessions was there.

The things which have been reported with evidence, but which are not fully confirmed:
During the campaign, Michael Flynn attended a meeting with senior Turkish leaders, where the subject was planning to (illegally) kidnap enemies of the Turkish government living in America, and bring them over to Turkey. The evidence for this is former CIA Director James Woolsey’s description of the event (at which he was present) to the Wall Street Journal.
Michael Flynn may have decided to turn state’s evidence and testify as part of the FBI investigation. Reports of this have circulated online, and Flynn has responded with a “no comment.” The truth of this remains unclear.

The things which are suspected, and which are possibly the ultimate meat of the investigations:

The Mayflower Meeting, and the related meetings at Trump Tower, included an explicit quid-pro-quo deal in which Donald Trump would further Russian interests as President, in exchange for personally receiving some fraction of Rosneft, as well as operational assistance from Russian intelligence (in the form of timed releases of stolen information) to win the election."

MANvsMACHINE's picture

His comment isn't about the Clintons. It's about the House Unintelligence Committee wasting time searching for something that doesn't exist while they ignore bigger issues. Also, it's a diversionary tactic but a good one because the question he asks has a lot of merit. Why aren't they investigating the Clintons where there is a ton of evidence of criminal activity?

jeff montanye's picture

imo having executive control of the justice department gives one at least a putative claim to participation in investigating the clintons.  

do elections have consequences?

MANvsMACHINE's picture

How do we know they aren't doing just that? He's only been in office for a couple of months. Sessions even less than that. If they were investigating the Clintons, I wouldn't expect to hear about it yet.

Justin Case's picture

Clintons have to clean up all the evidence under Comey's direction. Comey knows what the CIA has collected, and now helping to clean up the crumbs in their house. Then they will investigate? Clintons are one of the same tribe. All this drama is intended to paralyze the elected Gov't from getting anything accomplished. Then they'll get support from their corporate media clan to discredit the Gov't. It's criminal that the MSM are ignoring pizza gate.

Trump makes a very good point about "Intelligence" chasing Russian fairy tales yet avoiding the Clintons.

The Clintons and all the other DC weirdos own "Intelligence" and send them on demented assignments, and the agents comply without question.

If "Intelligence" operatives were on the side of America and her citizenry they would have long since solved Officer Terry Yeakey's murder.

But they were in on it.
