#NeverForget those like Todd Beamer, the young software salesman who helped to organize the passenger revolt on Flight 93 and whose last recorded words of “Let’s roll!” became a national rallying cry following the September 11th attacks. #NeverForget Sandy Bradshaw, a 38-year-old flight attendant aboard Flight 93 who, in a furtive call to her husband, explained how she was helping to boil hot water to hurl at the hijackers.

While Mueller so far has not found Trump involved in “collusion” with foreign citizens to warp a campaign, there is evidence that others most surely were colluding—but are not of interest to Mueller.… It’s likely that during the 2016 campaign, officials at the DOJ, FBI, CIA and NSA broke laws to ensure that the outsider Trump lost to Hillary Clinton. FBI and DOJ officials misled the FISA Court in order to obtain warrants to surveil Trump associates.

The Assad regime in Syria benefited from Iran’s financial windfall as a result of the implementation of the JCPOA, which translated into a marked increase in Iranian defense spending and the funding of its foreign military campaigns.… As result of the #IranDeal, $30 billion of Iranian assets were released, on top of $12.6 billion after the Geneva interim agreement, and the $400 million in cash the Obama administration paid to Iranian officials in exchange for the release of American hostages.

Those critical of the FBI/DOJ are not the ones trying to destroy these institutions. They’re destroying themselves. Look at the statements by FBI agent Strzok & FBI attorney Page, but also 3 others not named in the IG report but referred to as Agent 1, Agent 5, & FBI Attorney 2. One of the most devastating statements in the report is from an Aug. 8, 2016 text. When Page, the high-ranking FBI lawyer with whom he was having an affair, texted, "[Trump's] not ever going to become president, right? Right?!" Strzok responded, "No. No he's not. We'll stop it."

Some questions nobody in the media is willing to ask #Comey: When the FBI was in contact with Steele or otherwise relying on info in the dossier, was it aware that his employer, Fusion GPS, was simultaneously working as an unregistered agent for Russian interests? Does the FBI routinely view as “credible” sources who work for political operatives? Did the FBI do any due diligence at all on Steele's employer, Fusion GPS or the sources cited by Steele in his dossier?…

Seddique Mateen, father of the Orlando terrorist who killed 49 at the Pulse night club, was an FBI confidential human source between 2005 & 2016. Search at his residence found receipts for money transfers to Turkey & Afghanistan. 2nd transfer occurred one week before the attack. Omar Mateen was searching plane tickets to Turkey prior to his attack on Pulse. Fact that Seddique sent money to Turkey one week before the attack indicates Omar Mateen may have been planning to travel overseas prior to or following the attack.

Why is Steele not under indictment/facing extradition as a foreign agent for interfering in a US election, colluding w/Russian interests to obtain ‘damaging’ info to a Pres. candidate, or lying to the FBI about his own disclosures of FBI material to media?… Did Steele’s collusion efforts and interference in a U.S. campaign differ much from, or exceed, the attempts of Russians currently indicted by Robert Mueller?

Under what authority were American allies being used to help an American intelligence agency spy on a domestic political campaign? GCHQ & former CIA Dir Brennan played an early, prominent role in kickstarting the FBI’s Trump-Russia investigation, which began in the summer of 2016 GCHQ’s then head, Robert Hannigan, according to the Guardian, passed material in the summer of 2016 to then CIA chief, John Brennan. The matter was deemed so sensitive it was handled at ‘director level.'…

Reminder: Obama himself was grossly negligent in handling classified information when he knowingly communicated w/Clinton over a non-government, non-secure e-mail system. Any possibility of prosecuting Clinton was tanked by Obama’s conflict of interest.… When the FBI interviewed Abedin they showed her an email b/t Clinton & Obama (who was using his alias) and asked Abedin if she recognized the alias. She didn't, yet FBI agents then told her that the alias was Obama's. For the agents to do this ran afoul of investigative protocol.

Conglomerate controlled by Iran's supreme leader was a major winner from Obama's nuclear deal with Iran. Recall that Khamenei controls of one of the most powerful and secretive organizations in Iran called Setad or EIKO, under U.S. primary sanctions. Iran deal lifted U.S. sanctions on Setad which has built its empire on the systematic seizure of thousands of properties belonging to religious minorities, business people, and Iranians living abroad. Setad has stake in early every sector of Iran’s economy…

Reminder: Obama’s DOJ unilaterally controlled the allocation of billions of dollars absent congressional & judicial involvement by forcing banks, under the terms of “settlement agreements”, to distribute hundreds of millions in funds to leftist groups.… As @KimStrassel outlined in a piece highlighting Obama’s DOJ liberal slush fund in 2015, “the department was in the process of funneling more than half-a-billion dollars to liberal activist groups.”…

Newly filed court documents confirm that Fusion GPS made payments to three journalists between June 2016 until February 2017.… Each of the three reporters who received payments had written about the Russia probe...& were probably using Fusion GPS's work to write their stories.
