House Minority Leader Predicts “Accountability” in Trump-Russia Probe Origins

“THE CLOSEST EVER TO THIS COUNTRY HAVING A COUP”

by Sharon Rondeau

(Sep. 15, 2019) — On this morning’s “Sunday Morning Futures” hosted by Maria Bartiromo, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said that in regard to the origins of the Trump-Russia “collusion” investigation, “we need accountability” and that indictments are coming.

High-ranking former officials of the U.S. intelligence community, particularly in the DOJ, FBI and CIA, are believed to be under close scrutiny by Attorney General William Barr and the DOJ’s inspector general, Michael E. Horowitz, for their possible involvement in attempting to disrupt the Trump campaign and presidency following the 2016 election.

On October 21, 2016, the first of four FISA warrants was applied for on former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page, signed by then-FBI Director James Comey and “supported” by an unverified “dossier” claiming that Page was “an agent of a foreign power” who needed to be monitored.  In sworn statements, Comey and others claimed the dossier’s contents were verified with the due diligence expected of the FBI.

Of the revelations made public to date, McCarthy said, “We had to pull this information out.  There were people at the highest levels of government that were causing this problem…We came the closest ever to this country having a coup, and now we need accountability.”

“Are we going to see accountability, though, really?” Bartiromo asked, as she has many times of guests over the last 2+ years as Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation was ongoing.  In March, Mueller’s report stated that the probe found insufficient evidence of “collusion” between the campaign and the Russians.

Bartiromo specifically asked McCarthy about former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, whose legal team has reportedly attempted to negotiate with the DOJ to convince officials to abandon their intent to seek an imminent grand-jury indictment.

Early last year, Horowitz stated in a report that McCabe “lacked candor” in interviews with his office and the FBI about a media leak concerning an investigation into the Clinton Foundation.  Horowitz then referred McCabe for investigation to the U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia, which recommended to the DOJ to charging McCabe.

In regard to McCabe, McCarthy responded, “We will see an indictment.”

“A lot of people point to the CIA being one of the masterminds — John Brennan — are we going to see John Brennan come back and answer some questions?” Bartiromo asked.

“Anyone that has had any association with trying to create this coup should be held accountable,” McCarthy responded.  “I just had a conversation with [Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman] Lindsey Graham; I know he’ll bring individuals back into his committee, and I know we will not stop, and I give all trust within this Attorney General Barr to do what is right…”

McCarthy added that he believes Comey ultimately will not “get off.”

Later on the program, Sen. Marsha Blackburn, a member of the Judiciary Committee, said, “You will see accountability” after Bartiromo invoked Comey’s name.

    Did Congress make an criminal referrals in Benghazi? Did any of the 8 committees name who was at fault?

    Trey Gowdy recently told Hannity that people have lost their jobs and that is a form of punishment so don’t be surprised if no indictments.

    @Lew Harper

    Congress couldn’t legally hold anyone appropriately accountable for Benghazi when Obama’s “Sheriffs” (Holder and Lynch) were in charge. There’s a new, non-Obama “Sheriff” in charge now (Barr). Let’s give him a chance to prove he’s worthy.

    I absolutely believe “natural born citizen” means what Robert Laity and others who post here say it does and have provided evidence to prove. Plus, it makes common sense when put in the context of the United States having just fought and won a war for their independence from Great Britain and many people living in the United States who are British citizens being totally against this. To allow a child born in the United States and raised by parents who never wanted independence from their home country would put their new country in unnecessary jeopardy. Obama provides the perfect empirical evidence of why the original meaning of natural born citizen is vitally important and not obsolete as the article below will try to convince the reader…. and what the results of ignoring it can be as America struggles to recover from 8 years of the ineligible Obama.
    Here is a PDF file of a lawyer giving their opinion on why is should be changed. It embraces all of the politically correct propaganda we have been hearing for years.

    Robert Laity said:
    “Those who plead ignorance have no grounds for doing so. The Congress knows what Article II says. They actively tried at least (8) times to change it and failed miserably. SO now they just ignore it!!”

    Exactly. And the fact those eight (8) failed attempts tried to change Article II’s “natural born Citizen” criteria to mean anything/everything EXCEPT what the Founders intended it to mean proves, by omission, they knew then and know now what it means.

    “You will see accountability”

    They said the same thing about Benghazi.

    This country has had at least two bloodless “Coups”. Chester Arthur took over this nation by fraud usurping OUR Presidency, in 1881 essentially overthrowing the nation by non-violent means. Over a century and a score later, Obama did it again, with the help of others who were in power such as Nancy Pelosi and, yes, John McCain, also a fraud. The 2008 federal election for President included candidates from BOTH Major parties who were NOT Article II “natural born citizen[s]” of the United States. In effect, we have had TWO bloodless coups so far. It is amazing that President Trump managed to recoup the Presidency. To recover the republic. He had three phonies running against HIM, Cruz,Rubio and Jindal. Now in 2020 election cycle, what is happening again? We have other phonies attempting to repeat Arthur’s,Obama’s, McCain’s,Cruz’s,Rubio’s,Jindal’s,Harris’s and Gabbard’s crimes of fraud against “We the People”. Those who plead ignorance have no grounds for doing so. The Congress knows what Article II says. They actively tried at least (8) times to change it and failed miserably. SO now they just ignore it!!

    Thank you. I’ve had lots of practice over many years. I also noticed I now need an “edit” function more than ever, especially when I hit “post comment” before I should. For me anything can happen…and at 76 years old……it often does.

    The following single-sentence message/comment is directed to the visitors of this great website who represent the unConstitutional Deep State.

    Quick-Draw Bob68’s comments, past and present, have, early-on and consistently, identified the ignored elephant in the living room.

    Sorry, but the coup attempt to remove President Trump from office in not IMO ““The closest ever to this country having a coup”. It is the closest unsuccessful coup and was made necessary by the successful coup of 2008/2009. At the moment an ineligible, identity fraud con-artist was allowed to be sworn in back in 2009 it became necessary for that major violation of America’s Constitution to be covered-up, forever. America’s government and her military were effectively given to the enemy and the plan in 2008 was for Hillary Clinton to be there after Obama of the also planned (and unplanned) corruption of the Obama regime. When Hillary failed and Donald Trump, someone outside of the establishment swamp who had already gone after Obama for his forged BC in 2011, was elected has created panic in the many complicit in the Obama Fraud and that panic has not let up…..it has, however, revealed what I and others have believed for many in the panicked attempts to remove the “birther” President Trump from office.
    Will the truth about The Obama Fraud ever be fully revealed and acted on? Will anyone be held accountable…..especially at or near the level of Obama?
