By the time a person reaches my age most of us have hobbies or activities we enjoy that makes life fun and fulfilling.  I have more than one.

 

Then we have people our age that spend their time looking for silly things to pick a fight about that does not even amount to a small hill of beans.  Like the source of an article written by an investigative reporter.

 

Some folk need to get out and find some hobby or activity that makes life fun again...

 


So let me get this straight....

 

You are NOT DENYING that Sara Carter worked for THE MOONIE CULT mouthpiece, The Washington Times, whose direction is determined by the whims of the leaders of the CULT.

 

You are also NOT DENYING that at least one of the awards this supposed "investigative journalist" has won has come from an organization that believes in EUGENICS and THE STERILIZATION of "imperfect people".

 

You are NOT DENYING either of those points but you do have the time to levy a personal attack on me because I point out that almost every source you have used is of a spurious nature.

 

This Sara Carter is not considered a legitimate resource by any means of journalistic integrity.

Strzok Complained Of ‘Material Misrepresentations’ In FISA Application

 
BY:   CHUCK ROSS

 

One of Peter Strzok’s text messages shows the embattled FBI agent complaining about a case in which “material misrepresentations” were made to obtain a spy warrant in the FISA Court.

 

The exchange occurred on Oct. 16, 2015, well before Strzok was tapped to lead the investigation into Russian meddling in the presidential campaign. But it sheds some light on the FISA process, which is at the center of a partisan debate because of the FBI and Justice Department’s use of the unverified Steele dossier to obtain a FISA warrant to spy on former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.

In the text, which was sent to FBI lawyer Lisa Page, Strzok appears to be criticizing another government official who he claimed bungled an investigation.

 

The official, whose name is redacted, reopened an investigation, which lead to a discussion within the Justice Department’s Office of Intelligence about whether “material misrepresentations” were made in a FISA application.

 

The case was closed because of those material misrepresentations, Strzok suggested.

 

Oct. 16, 2015 text message from Peter Strzok to Lisa Page

At the time he sent the text, Strzok was working on the Hillary Clinton email investigation.

 

The following July, he was tapped to oversee the Russia investigation. It is unclear how deeply Strzok was involved in obtaining the FISAs against Page.

 

The first warrant to spy on Page was granted on Oct. 21, 2016 and was renewed three times — in January, April and June.

 

Republican lawmakers have recently alleged that either dossier author Christopher Steele made misrepresentations to the FBI about his Trump investigation, or the agency made materially false representations to a FISA judge in order to get warrants to spy on Carter Page.

 

Republicans claim that the agencies failed to disclose that the dossier was funded by the Clinton campaign and DNC and that Steele failed to disclose some of his contacts with reporters while he was working with the FBI.

 

There is little public information about how frequently the FBI and Justice Department are found to have made misrepresentations to the FISA Court or how many cases are closed because of inaccurate representations in spy warrant applications.

 

In a recent report, the progressive activist group Demand Progress noted that the court “has no independent means to verify compliance and so must rely on the government to self-report any violations.”

 

“The government claims it informs the FISC of violations in a timely fashion. But judges have repeatedly complained about delays in notice of violations and other key information, in one 2017 opinion accusing the government of ‘an institutional lack of candor,'” the report reads.

 

California Republican Rep. Devin Nunes has pushed to reveal some of the inconsistencies in the FBI and DOJ’s applications to spy on Page, a 46-year-old energy consultant who denies the allegations made about him in the dossier.

 

Steele alleged that Page met secretly with two Kremlin insiders and was the Trump campaign’s main Kremlin liaison for the purposes of collusion.

 

Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley and South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham have also pointed out discrepancies in the FISA applications.

 

The two Republicans referred Steele to the FBI last month for possible criminal investigation because of statements he made to the bureau regarding his work on the dossier. They also left open the possibility that the FBI and DOJ knew of inaccuracies in Steele’s statements to FBI agents but included his information in the FISA application anyway.

 

“The FISA applications are either materially false in claiming that Mr. Steele said he did not provide dossier information to the press prior to October 2016, or Mr. Steele made materially false statements to the FBI when he claimed he only provided the dossier information to his business partner and the FBI,” the senators wrote to FBI Director Christopher Wray and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

 

In their letter, Grassley and Graham point to Steele’s interactions with Yahoo! News reporter Michael Isikoff in September 2016. Steele briefed Isikoff on his dossier findings at the time, and the reporter published an article on Sept. 23, 2016.

 

The FBI “extensively” cited that article in its FISA application but appeared unaware that Steele was the source of the information.

 

Grassley and Graham asserted that the misrepresentations arose from Steele’s claims to that FBI that he “did not have unauthorized contacts with the press” prior to October 2016.

 

The senators said that Steele’s “apparent deception” seemed to have had “significant” and “material” consequences on the FBI’s investigation and its claims to the FISA Court.

 

“Mr. Steele’s information formed a significant portion of the FBI’s warrant application, and the FISA application relied more heavily on Mr. Steele’s credibility than on any independent verification or corroboration for his claims,” the wrote.

New Report Exposes Strzok and Page Texts

Donald Trump is a man of stellar integrity who worships the truth and honesty. He's such an honest man that he's concerned about alleged corruption he heard about at the FBI, our elite law enforcement agency. Trump then sends out his Republican Congressman chumps (supported by millions of Trump voters) to drum up allegations against FBI agents in their attempt to smear the agency. 

 

Oh by the way, I'm sure it's just a sheer coincidence, but the alleged corrupt agents just happen to be the people investigating Donald Trump. Wow! We know that's purely a coincidence.

 

One must understand that guilty people have no defense, so they almost always attack the prosecution. As with OJ, he didn't murder Nicole, he was framed by LAPD.

Two more officials cited in FBI texts step down

The FBI's media chief and the head of the Justice Department's anti-espionage section are both departing.

 

02/08/2018 07:18 PM EST

 

Two more senior government officials who were prominently discussed in text messages exchanged by FBI personnel formerly assigned to the Trump-Russia investigation are leaving their positions.

 

Mike Kortan, FBI assistant director for public affairs, is set to retire next week, an FBI spokeswoman confirmed. In addition, the chief of the Justice Department’s Counterintelligence and Export Control Section, David Laufman, resigned this week, a department spokesman said.

 

messages sent by senior FBI Agent Peter Strzok and FBI attorney Lisa Page. President Donald Trump and many Republican lawmakers have argued that the texts are evidence of anti-Trump bias at senior levels of the Justice Department and FBI.

 

While the texts contain derogatory mentions of Trump, the messages made public thus far don’t attribute that sentiment to Kortan or Laufman, and there’s no indication that either departure is related to the recent flap.

 

Kortan, who has headed the FBI’s media operation since 2009, has told colleagues for months or longer that he was on the verge of retirement. The imminent nature of his departure was first reported by Fox News.

 

Laufman’s exit is more surprising. It was first reported by The Washington Post, which said he told colleagues he was leaving for personal reasons.

 

Laufman had served since 2014 as the top Justice Department official overseeing espionage investigations, as well as cases involving foreign lobbying and leaks of classified information. That put Laufman in charge of the Hillary Clinton email probe and aspects of the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election — an inquiry handed off last May to special counsel Robert Mueller.

The Strzok-Page texts suggest they held an unflattering view of Laufman and Kortan.

“Kortan majorly screwed up,” one April 2016 text from Page said.

 

“I am getting aggravated at Laufman,” a March 2016 message from Strzok said.

 

The list of officials frequently discussed in the texts who are no longer in their jobs seems to grow by the day. It includes former FBI Director James Comey, who was fired by Trump; former Deputy Director Andrew McCabe; Comey’s chief of staff, James Rybicki; FBI General Counsel James Baker; as well as Strzok, who was booted off the special counsel investigation and sent to a job in the FBI’s personnel division.

Agent Strzok recommended re-opening the Hillary Email Investigation just before the 2016 election. Does that sound like somone covering up? Unbelievable!

Yes, let's look at her bio..................

 

She won the prestigious Eugene Katz Award from THE CENTER FOR IMMIGRATION STUDIES.

 

 


 

The Eugene Katz Award for Excellence in the Coverage of Immigration


 

The Eugene Katz Award For Excellence in the Coverage of Immigration was inaugurated in 1997 by the Center for Immigration Studies to promote informed and fair reporting on this contentious and complicated issue. The inspiration for the award is a native New Yorker who started his career, after Dartmouth and Oxford, as a reporter for the Daily Oklahoman. In 1928 he joined the family business, working as an advertising salesman for the Katz Agency, and in 1952 became the president of Katz Communications, a half-billion-dollar firm which not only dealt in radio and television advertising but also owned and managed a number of radio stations.

 

Mr. Katz was also a member of Center for Immigration Studies board until shortly after his 90th birthday in 1997.  The Center benefited greatly from his wise counsel, and the board and staff developed an affection for him that went well beyond business matters. Mr. Katz passed away in March 2000 at the age of 93.

Let's see just how prestigious that is.

 

It was awarded by THE CENTER FOR IMMIGRATION STUDIES, a NATIVIST, EXTREMIST group with ties to several WHITE SUPREMACIST groups. It was founded by John Tanton, a believer in eugenics. In fact, he advocates for sterilization of genetically undesirable groups.

 

@jimc91, I guess if you believe in eugenics and group sterilization, the Eugene Katz Award must possess some merit for you but, to me, any award awarded by an organization such as THE CENTER FOR IMMIGRATION STUDIES is worthless.

 

I am sure HITLER won several awards from fascist organizations.

 

We have the same situation here.
