Elder Patriot- Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (SSCI) Chairman Richard Burr’s (R-NC) refusal to condemn the growing mountain of evidence that proves the FISC was lied to and unlawful surveillance of innocent American citizens took place, signals that those aligned against President “Drain the Swamp” Trump recognize their situation is now desperate.
They are wed to their lies because President Trump has left them with nowhere to pivot.
The SSCI is the most corrupt of all of the Congressional committees and would better be named the “incumbent protection committee.” It’s where investigations of corrupt politicians go to die… as long as they’re committed to the preservation of the Deep State.
Burr told CNN:
“I don’t think I ever expressed that I thought the FISA application came up short. There (were) sound reasons as to why judges issued the FISA.”
Burr’s statement puts him at odds with his counterpart in the House, Devin Nunes as well as his party’s president, Donald Trump. It also puts him as odds with the truth.
If Burr really believes that there were “sound reasons” that FISC judges approved four consecutive warrants to conduct surveillance on American citizens why won’t he present it?
Burr has been in possession of an unredacted copy of the FISA application since March 17, 2017. That was confirmed when the indictment of James Wolfe, the former security chief of the SSCI, was unsealed in June of this year. It was revealed that Wolfe had exchanged 82 text messages with reporter Ali Watkins that leaked the entire document in its original form.
From page 6 of Wolfe’s indictment:
Let this sink in.
Devin Nunes, a member of the Gang of Eight and Chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence has been denied the ability to present any of the unredacted FISC applications to the HPSCI but both the New York Times and Buzzfeed have been in possession of it for more than 14 months.
The HPSCI is charged with direct oversight over the DOJ-FBI apparatus that we can now say without fear was weaponized under the direct order of President Hussein.
“If it weren’t for President Obama we might not have done the intelligence community assessment that we did that set up a whole sequence of events which are still unfolding today including Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation.
“President Obama is responsible for that. It was he who tasked us to do that intelligence community assessment in the first place.”
Clapper’s remarks confirm the text message of the FBI’s lead investigator, Peter Strzok from September 2, 2016: bc POTUS wants to know everything we are doing.”
Burr is hiding behind the crescendo of falsehoods being propagated by the lapdog mainstream media.
Burr has also hidden the fact that his Vice Chairman, Mark Warner (D-VA) is likely facing an indictment himself for his covert contacts with lobbyist Adam Waldman who was trying to arrange a secret meeting with Christopher Steele, the author of the phone dossier that is the foundational evidence for the FISA application.
Warner’s texts do not read like someone who is trying to shed daylight on the veracity of the dossier. It’s the actions of a man determined to get his story straight because he knows he’s sinking in quicksand.
How Burr expects the mainstream media to maintain these lies is beyond explanation. Burr has to know that the only thing still
preventing their entire narrative from collapsing is when, not if, Donald Trump declassifies everything and we see the unredacted documents in their original form.
Burr is not only a smart man, he is a deviously smart man. The fact that he is now clinging to a completely discredited narrative should indicate to everyone just how dire he views his situation to be.
Until then content yourself that Trump’s team is busy expanding their investigations and catching more Deep State operatives in their net.
