Trump Responds to John Brennan’s Tweet on Requested DOJ Probe

BY QUOTING FORMER SECRET SERVICE AGENT, RADIO HOST DAN BONGINO

by Sharon Rondeau

(May 21, 2018) — In an apparent response to a tweet by Obama CIA Director John O. Brennan on Sunday evening, President Donald J. Trump tweeted early Monday morning that “John Brennan is panicking.”

Brennan had called Trump “self-serving” and addressed an appeal to Speaker of the House Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to intervene in Trump’s request of the Justice Department to investigate whether or not the FBI conducted politically-motivated surveillance on his campaign.

Beginning on May 8, 2018, The Washington Post reported that the identity of a “top-secret intelligence source” described as “a U.S. citizen who has provided intelligence to the CIA and FBI” who played a “role”  in the Russia collusion investigation now led by Robert Mueller was sought by Republicans in the House of Representatives from the Justice Department, which reportedly claimed, along with “senior FBI and intelligence officials, that “turning over the information could contradict years of policy about protecting intelligence sources, according to three people familiar with the matter.”

At the same time, the article reported, “It’s not clear what documents [House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin] Nunes requested in his classified April 24 letter to the Justice Department. He told reporters this week that he is investigating the FBI’s abuse of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act ‘and other matters.’”

On May 18, The Post reported:

In mid-July 2016, a retired American professor approached an adviser to Donald Trump’s presidential campaign at a symposium about the White House race held at a British university.

The professor took the opportunity to strike up a conversation with Carter Page, whom Trump had named a few months earlier as a foreign policy adviser.

But the professor was more than an academic interested in American politics — he was a longtime U.S. intelligence source. And, at some point in 2016, he began working as a secret informant for the FBI as it investigated Russia’s interference in the campaign, according to people familiar with his activities.

The same day, The New York Times published an article titled, “F.B.I. Used Informant to Investigate Russia Ties to Campaign, Not to Spy, as Trump Claims.”

On March 25, 2018, The Daily Caller published an article tying an American professor based in the UK to meetings with three members of the Trump campaign, paying one of them $3,000 plus travel expenses to write a paper on an unrelated topic.  At that time, The DC reported, “it is not clear if he has been in touch with investigators.”

Last Tuesday, Nunes appeared on Fox & Friends, stating that he and Chairman of the House Oversight & Government Reform Committee Trey Gowdy had a “productive” meeting with intelligence and DOJ officials the previous Wednesday and that he was looking forward to another such meeting the following day, May 16. However, on Tuesday evening, commentator Sean Hannity, who has been following developments closely, announced that the meeting had been canceled until “next week.”

On Sunday, Gateway Pundit reported that the DOJ said it offered to meet with Nunes and Gowdy last Friday morning but that they did not respond to the invitation.  However, Steve Doocy said on Monday’s Fox & Friends that in a Sunday interview with Fox Business’s Maria Bartiromo, Nunes said he learned that if he attended the proposed meeting, he would not receive the requested documents.

Nunes and other House Republicans have reportedly crafted Articles of Impeachment against Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein for withholding the documentation congressional committees say they need to see to determine the extent to which any abuse of FISA laws was conducted by the U.S. intelligence community, also involving at least one member of the Trump campaign who was also approached by the UK-based professor.

Nunes had told Bartiromo  that “If they ran a spy ring or an informant ring and they were paying people within the Trump campaign…that is an absolute red line.” (4:00)

Last Monday, radio host Rush Limbaugh theorized that the “professor” who played the role of an “informant” between the Trump campaign and the FBI had done so using the technique of “entrapment.”  On Hannity’s show last Monday night, investigative reporter Sara A. Carter theorized that the “’intelligence source’ with ties to both the FBI and the CIA acted as a ‘mole’ to gain inside information on the 2016 Trump presidential campaign.”

Trump’s three-part response to Brennan consists of comments, although not exact, made on the FNC “Fox & Friends” show on Monday morning by commentator, radio host and former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino beginning at 24:04 here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M0lNc_JBWJw

Trump’s slightly inexact quote of Bongino’s initial comments ends with “of this whole Debacle” in the third tweet but resumes after Bongino responded to the co-hosts’ questions.

After Doocy asked, referring to Brennan, “Who told him to do it?  Who told him to start it?” Bongino revealed that he and at least one other person are writing a book on the topic.  “We think, based on some of my investigation and for the book we’re putting together on this, that he just didn’t like Donald Trump,” he responded, “but got information through unofficial channels through people who were involved with British intelligence.   They were basically using unofficial channels, Steve, to launder information, like you would launder money.  Because if they put it through officials channels, something would have happened.  You now what that one thing is?  They would have had to verify the information before they used it, and they didn’t want to, because this was a political hit job.  This was not an intelligence investigation.”

Co-host Brian Kilmeade then asked who might have known of Brennan’s alleged actions, to which Bongino responded, “I believe John Carlin at DOJ; Jim Clapper; I believe Loretta Lynch had detailed knowledge; of course Comey knew what was going on in this.  There was a very small working group of people who were involved in this political hit job on Donald Trump.  But at this point — here’s the problem, Brian — the reason Brennan’s panicking and lot of others have gone silent is they’re not just worried about reputational harm.  Brennan’s disgraced himself; he knows history’s not going to be kind to him. They’re worried about staying out of jail.  There were criminal leaks here; criminal leaks, felonious, criminal leaks of information.  Someone was responsible.”

Bongino is a Fox News contributor, host of “The Dan Bongino Show,” a former NYPD officer and U.S. Secret Service agent, a three-time congressional candidate and published author. He also serves as an NRA spokesman.

Approximately an hour after the three tweets, Trump asked the question, “Where in the world was Barack Obama?” quoting the title of an article featured on the program in its interview of James Freeman, introduced by Kilmeade as “Assistant Editor for The Wall Street Journal editorial page.” (13:27)

Freeman is also a Fox News contributor.  His article was published Friday.

In his Monday morning interview with Kilmeade, Freeman speculated that “to begin spying on a U.S. political campaign” would have been “a presidential decision.”  He then suggested that Obama “weigh in at this point” as to what he knew and when.

“If this is not a presidential-level decision, I don’t know what is,” Freeman concluded his interview.

    In all my 40 plus years as a practicing engineer, I have frequently read that engineers must be leaders; that they must not let others with far less depth of technical understanding run the show, perhaps steal the show, while engineers remain humble backroom detailers et al. Who is leading who nowadays?

    Since I retired in 2013, I have taken the time to study US history and national politics; daily. We are now living in unprecedented historic times, wherein, I believe we will see the impeachment, and possible incarceration, of Obama and his closest criminal associates.

    I know that my impeachment-and-imprisonment prediction herein may come as an inconvenient cognitive dissonance to many, if not most, ASCE members; that sometimes being honest is an honest mistake et al. However, at a time where other less technical professions (legal, journalism et al) have failed so noticeably, licensed engineers can, and must, now lead the nation, at a most critical time in US history, to assist President Trump Make America Great Again, by, at least, refusing to be associated with any engineer-procure-construct-maintain efforts of any proposed “Obama Presidential Center” or “Obama Presidential Library” or “bait-and-switch private NARA-absent LIE-BRARY” et al.
    https://www.courthousenews.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/24.pdf

    Can we now remodel our frames of mind from believing-is-seeing to seeing-is-believing on this suspect presidential library affair?

    The eyes can not see what the mind does not know.

    Selfishness is the root of all human evil; money [Madoff], lust [Clinton], totalitarianism [Hitler] and unchecked narcissism [Obama] are merely the vehicles used to convey selfishness to its victims.

    Without tarnishing the very clean ASCE body, and with minimal public fanfare, perhaps the ASCE will assist many concerned private-citizens in America by respectfully, yet firmly, refusing to render any engineering services to, what I believe are, criminal indictable enterprises called “Obama Presidential Center”, “Obama Foundation”, “Obama Administration”, planned narrative “Barry Soetoro-Barack Hussein Obama II” et al. Who within ASCE has ever witnessed one of Soetoro-Obama II’s 17 original identification documents in Item 207 A thru Q herein? Anyone?
    https://www.freedomwatchusa.org/pdf/130919-EXHIBIT%203%20-%20Zullo%20Affidavit%20Alabama.pdf

    I believe ASCE’s collective engineer-conscience will be rendered “con-science” if my profession is led by criminal intentions to abuse our superior-to-subordinated licensed learned knowledge to construct any national monuments-to-fraud for our grandchildren to inherit.

    Before rushing to judgment to possibly scold/warn me for enlisting innuendo and hearsay heresy, for jointly-scheming to block free-trade, or for displaying unethical behavior et al, ASCE, consider this:

    A. See this covered-up proven evidence of presIDential fraud in the national mind: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yuhF-Ok3djI
    B. While Americans are presumed innocent until proven guilty, note also that many Americans, in the over-riding interest of public safety, are presumed to be “terrorists” (guilty) until screen-proven to be “passengers” (innocent)
    C. While every American citizen has an inalienable right-to-know the full IDentity of any presIDential candIDate, any incumbent presIDent and any ex-presIDent at any time, this inalienable presIDential ID-knowledge intellectual property has been sealed/denied from some 323,000,000 American citizens since 08-28-08. Why?
    https://canadafreepress.com/2009/williams091209.htm
    D. For some 1900 years the Church mandated that planet Earth is the center of the heavens, until a persecuted engineer-scientist, Galileo Galilei, proved otherwise with the strength of his convictions https://galileo.ou.edu/exhibits/galileo-engineer

    Where societies allow natural science to over-rule political science, measures to dismiss “con-science” are enhanced.

    Thank you for your conscientious consideration herein,

    AS A LICENSED PE IN FOUR STATES, BEGINNING IN 1978 AS A MAINE PE, IT IS MY STUDIED OPINIOIN THAT ANY LIEBRARY STRUCTURE DEDICATED TO NARRATIVE-IDENTIFIED “BARRY SOETORO-BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA II” IS A FRAUDULENT ENTERPRISE THAT MUST BE IMMEDIATELY TERMINATED BY PROTECT OUR PARKS, INC., PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP, THE NATIONAL COUNSIL OF EXAMINERS FOR ENGINEERING AND SURVEYING (NCEES), NATIONAL SOCIETY OF PROFESSIONAL ENGINEERS, ASSOCIATED PE STATE LICENSING BOARDS ET AL UNTIL AFTER OBAMA’S FIRST FRADULENT ACT, EXECUTIVE ORDER 13489, IS RESCINDED, AND ALL ORIGINAL PREVIOUSLY SEALDED IDENTIFICATION RECORDS LISTED IN ITEM 207 A THRU Q HEREIN, AT LEAST, ARE FREELY REVEALED TO SOME 323,000,000 AMERICAN CITIZENS, SINCE SUCH HERETOFORE ATTORNEY-CRIMINAL-ROBBED PRESIDENTIAL ID-KNOWLEDGE IS AND ALWAYS WAS THE INALIENABLE INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY OF ALL LEGAL AMERICAN CITIZENS 08-28-08- TODAY:

    A smart man knows what he doesn’t know and a willfully ignorant man knows what he doesn’t want to know!

    WHAT LICENSED PROFESSIONAL ENGINEERS (PE) IN AMERICA MUST DO WHEN THEY DISCOVER THEIR ERRORS AND OMISSIONS AND FRAUDULENT ASSOCIATIONS IN THEIR WORK PRODUCT IS DISCLOSE THOSE DISCOVERIES TO THE PROPER AUTHORITIES FOR THE PROTECTION OF THE HEALTH, SAFETY, PROPERTY AND WELFARE OF THE TRUSTING LAY PUBLIC. PE WILLIAM “BILL” LEMESSURIER WAS MY BOSS WHEN I HELPED ENGINEER THE NATIONAL AQUARIUM IN 1977, DURING THE TIME OF LEMESSURIER’S CITICORP BUILDING ERROR DISCOVERIES. BILL TAUGHT ME AND MANY LICENSED ENGINEERS IN AMERICA THAT ENGINEERS MUST DISCLOSE AND REPAIR MAJOR ENGINEERING ERRORS BECAUSE THE PUBLIC SAFETY IS OF “PARAMOUNT IMPORTANCE”.

    MY STUDIES OVER SEVERAL RECENT YEARS LEAD ME TO BELIEVE THAT SO-CALLED “BARRY SOETORO-OBAMA II” WAS ILLEGALLY PROMOTED BY A CRIMINAL NANCY PELOSI ON 08-28-08, FOR HER OWN AND DNC’S WILLFUL POLITICAL EXPEDIENCY, HAVING FULL KNOWLEDGE THAT SOETORO-OBAMA II WAS ALWAYS CONSTITUTIONALLY INELIGIBLE TO BE PRESIDENT. CRIMINAL PELOSI’S ILLEGAL ACTS AT THE 2008 DNC GOT OBAMA’S FRADULENT CANDIDACY GOING AND ITS “FEEL GOOD CRIMINALHOOD” JUST STEAM-ROLLED THEREAFTER OVER ALL COMPLICIT PENSION-MINDED PC GOVERNMENT-CITIZENS, OVER ALL COMPLICIT TIPPED-OFF COURT JUDGES AND COMPLICIT ATTORNEY-CRIMINALS, AND OVER MOST COMPLACENT “FEEL GOOD” WILLFULLY IGNORANT PC PRIVATE-CITIZENS. https://canadafreepress.com/2009/williams091209.htm

    I BELIEVE THAT BARRY SOETORO-OBAMA II IS AMERICA’S FIRST ILLEGAL SANCTUARY “OPEN CITIZENSHIP BORDERS” PRESIDENT, FIRST TOKEN-QUOTA AFFIRMATIVE-RACISM BLACK (MULATTO) PRESIDENT, FIRST BLACK-LIES-WHITE-FRAUD COUP PRESIDENT, FIRST UNDISCLOSED muslm-reared and FAKE CHRISTIAN Marxist-mentored islam-advocating adulterous-homosexual PRESIDENT, FIRST NATIONAL MANCHURIAN HOAX-PRESIDENT, ALL AS THE RESULT OF WILLFULL, PREJUDICIAL, RADICAL, SUBJECTIVE, COWARDLY PC AND EMOTIONAL GOVERNMENT-CITIZEN AND STATE-LICENSED ATTORNEY-CRIMINAL ABANDONMENT OF THE ORIGINAL INTENTIONS OF OUR FOUNDING FATHERS’ PEDIGREE-INBRAINED PHILOSOPHY-RESTRICTIVE PHRASE-OF-ART OF 1787- 1789, NAMELY, “natural born Citizen”. OUR NATION’S SYNDICATED LEGAL SYSTEM, THEN, HAS FAILED AND CONTINUES TO FAIL ITS LAY PUBLIC CITIZENS, WHILE THE LEGAL PROFESSION’S ATTORNEY LICENSING BOARDS LOOK ON PASSIVELY, IF NOT APPROVINGLY, EVERY DAY SINCE 08-28-08.

    https://www.courthousenews.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/24.pdf

    THEREFORE, UNTIL AFTER ALL SOETORO-OBAMA II’S IDENTIFICATION RECORDS ARE IRREFUTABLY VERIFIED BY A FORMAL TRUMP-APPOINTED COMMITTEE OF NON-COMPLICIT NON-GOVERNMENT PRIVATE CITIZENS (ZULLO-RONDEAU- ATTY. TAITZ- ATTY. KLAYMAN- ATTY. APUZZO- KERCHNER-NOONAN- VOLIN- CORSI- FREDRICK- ZOLNA- MOOERS ET AL), AMERICA’S FORMER “IN GOD WE TRUST” WILL EFFECTIVELY REMAIN REPLACED WITH “IN LIES WE TRUST”, WITH OBAMA’S LIEBRARY STRUCTURE SYMBOLIZING AND SOLIDIFYING OBAMA’S SUCCESSFUL LEGAL-PROFESSION-ASSISTED AND ENGINEERING-PROFESSION-ASSISTED [?] NATIONAL MONUMENT TO CORRUPT GOVERNMENT-CITIZEN FRAUD.

    BARRY SOETORO-OBAMA II NEVER WAS, NEVER IS AND NEVER WILL BE AMERICA’S 44TH CONSTITUTIONAL PRESIDENT AS ORIGINALLY INTENDED IN 1787-1789 UNLESS YOU CAN PROVE IT SO. BECAUSE OUR NATION’S LEGAL SYSTEM (POLITICAL SCIENCE) HAS FAILED ITS CITIZENS WITH ITS ON-GOING UNACCOUNTED ATTORNEY-CRIMINAL ACTIONS SEEN ON TELEVISION EVERYDAY (STATE-LICENSED ATTORNEY-CRIMINALS COMEY, MUELLER, OBAMA, CONTEMPT OF CONGRESS AG HOLDER, LYNCH, RICO-CLINTONS, McCABE ET AL), LICENSED PE’S AND LS’S (NATURAL SCIENCE) MUST NOW COME FORWARD AND BEGIN THE END OF THE SOETORO-OBAMA II- FRAUD PERIOD IN AMERICAN HISTORY BY REFUSING TO ENGAGE IN ANY LICENSED ENGINEERING KNOWLEDGE-SERVICES TO ENGINEER-PROCURE-CONSTRUCT-MAINTAIN OBAMA’S LIEBRARY.

    https://www.amazon.com/Obama-Nation-Jerome-Corsi-Ph-D/dp/1439189692

    PROVE ME WRONG!

    WHILE ANYONE MAY ATTACK AND HURL MEAN MONIKERS AT ME PERSONALLY FOR DELIVERING THIS ROUSING MESSAGE OF INCONVENIENT COGNITIVE DISSONANCE TO AMERICA, ONLY DRIVE-BY WILLFULLY IGNORANT CITIZENS WOULD SUMMARILY DISMISS THE INCONVENIENT TRUTHS OF THE MESSAGE CONTENTS HEREIN.

    GOD BLESS AMERICA

    GOD BLESS MEGA MAGA PRESIDENT TRUMP

    GOD BLESS HONEST AMERICAN ENGINEERS AND “KNOWLEDGE PATRIOTS” WHO WILL NOT REST UNTIL BARRY SOETORO-OBAMA II IS HELD ACCOUNTABLE TO OUR GRANDCHILDREN FOR THE OBAMA-GOVERNMENT-ATTORNEY-MEDIA SYNDICATION OF NATIONAL FRAUD 08-28-08- TODAY

    Soetoro-Obama II Liebrary will likely require electrical, mechanical, civil, architectural, environmental, computer, structural, sanitary, safety, fire protection, highway, traffic et al PEs and licensed surveyors (LSs) to erect a national government-citizen attorney-criminal MONUMENT-TO-FRAUD. Will PEs and LSs herein refuse all liebrary-money contracts-for-fraud pay-offs? Time and crime will tell!

    STOP the awful fail time><START the lawful jail time!
