“WHY BLOW UP OUR INVESTIGATION IN FEDERAL COURT?”
by Sharon Rondeau
(Jan. 6, 2017) — In a broadcast of the WOBC Radio show on Thursday night, Maricopa County Cold Case Posse lead investigator Mike Zullo, who conducted the probe into Obama’s long-form birth certificate, shifted the conversation to reveal that he has viewed documentation showing that personal data of both public and private individuals was harvested by a government agency or agencies during the Obama years without a warrant.
At 1:28:04 in the show, Zullo responded to a question from Ed Sunderland about the work of Dennis Montgomery, who was paid as a confidential informant to the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO), which was then headed by Sheriff Joseph M. Arpaio.
“There is information about the Montgomery investigation that I am not at liberty to discuss,” Zullo said, although he said that Montgomery’s work was “portrayed as if it were a joke” by the Arizona media.
When James Clapper announced his resignation in mid-November, Montgomery’s attorney, Larry Klayman, opined that Montgomery’s revealing to the FBI of alleged “massive illegal spying on hundreds of judges, including the chief justice of the United States Supreme Court, prominent businessmen and tens of thousands of others” in which he said Clapper was “involved.”
Montgomery is a former CIA and NSA contractor, having invented software programs which could breach computer systems, according to Zullo, and reportedly built a mega-computer called “The Hammer.”
Zullo said that the federal government made Montgomery into a “victim.”
He affirmed that Montgomery provided information about the Obama long-form birth certificate and that Montgomery possessed “millions” of records belonging to American citizens.
“I personally have seen information harvested that Mr. Montgomery said when he was working for federal authorities” belonging to members of Congress, Donald Trump, George Clooney, and even Zullo himself, Zullo said.
In a recent video release, Klayman reported that the personal data of “156 judges” was collected by the government.
Referring to civil-contempt hearings against Arpaio which took place in April 2015 in which Montgomery became a flash point, Zullo said that the presiding federal judge, G. Murray Snow, effectively halted Montgomery’s work when he demanded all of Montgomery’s work product for the MCSO, although unrelated to the civil contempt charge.
Zullo explained that investigators and Klayman “got Mr. Montgomery to a federal judge,” Royce C. Lamberth, who formerly headed the FISA court.
After Montgomery “produced some documentation,” the FBI gave him two immunity agreements in the areas of “production” and “testimony.”
Zullo said that at that point, the information Montgomery provided must have had compelling “national security” ramifications. “I have to ask myself, why blow up our investigation in federal court?” Zullo asked rhetorically at 1:34:50, referring to Snow.
