Carter Page Sues Deep State, Including the DOJ,  Demands a Jury Trial and 75 Million Dollars

Carter Page Sues Deep State, Including the DOJ, Demands a Jury Trial and 75 Million Dollars

Carter Page through his attorney Leslie McAdoo Gordon, filed a $75 million lawsuit against James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Lisa Page, the Department of Justice and others, on Friday.

“It is my privilege to represent Carter Page in his suit against the officials who violated his rights in an outrageous abuse of govt power. #Winterishere. We’re a team of lawyers working for justice for Carter,” Gordon wrote.

“The complaint leads with McCabe’s admission to the Senate Judiciary Committee that “We are all responsible for the work that went into that FISA” — brilliant, which is what you would expect from @McAdooGordon,” on court watcher posted on Twitter, in reaction.

In the 59 page document Page alleges his Civil Right were infringed upon by illegal spying upon him and ruining his life, which Andrew mcCabe already admitted to doing.

According to the lawsuit:


“Specifically, Dr. Page secks relief herein for Defendants’ multiple violations of his Constitutional and other legal rights in connection with unlawful surveillance and investigation of him by the United States Government. Dr. Page was targeted because of his lawful association with the 2016 Presidential campaign of Donald Trump. Dr. Page is entitled to relief for
Defendants’ unjustified and illegal actions (including violations of federal criminal law), which violated federal statutes enacted to prevent unlawful spying on United States persons, as well as the Constitution.”

Citizen Free Press reported on the lawsuit and said,”In an eight-count complaint filed Friday in the D.C. District Court, Carter Page seeks damages of no less than $75 million from the U.S. government, the Department of Justice, the Federal Bureau of Investigations, and individuals responsible for obtaining four illegal Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act orders against Page.”

Page’s 59-page complaint lists as defendants a veritable “Who’s Who” of the SpyGate scandal, including former FBI Director James Comey, Assistant Director Andrew McCabe, and the disgraced team of Peter Strzok and Lisa Page. Also singled out were Kevin Clinessmith, who earlier this year pleaded guilty to falsifying an email to hide Page’s past service as a source to the CIA, and FBI Agents Joe Pientka, Stephen Somma, and Brian Auten, with additional defendants identified merely as John Doe 1 – 10 and Jane Doe 1 – 10.

For further reading, Gordon recommends the Federalist:

According to the Federalist:

“The first four counts of his complaint allege claims under FISA, with one count seeking damages for each of the four FISA court orders the defendants obtained against Page. FISA provides a private right of action to allow “an aggrieved person. . . who has been subjected to an electronic surveillance or about whom information obtained by electronic surveillance of such person has been disclosed,” to sue those responsible.

In addition to stating a civil claim for damages under FISA, Page’s attorneys note in the complaint that FISA makes it a criminal offense to illegally “engage in electronic surveillance under color of law.”  While only the government can prosecute a criminal violation of FISA, the allegation is a stark reminder that other than Clinesmith, no criminal cases have resulted from the illegal targeting of Page and the Trump campaign—at least not yet.”

“There Were Republicans Involved”  Steven Shrage: The Man Who Introduced DS Spy Stefan Halper to Carter Page (VIDEO)

“There Were Republicans Involved” Steven Shrage: The Man Who Introduced DS Spy Stefan Halper to Carter Page (VIDEO)

Steven Shrage, the man who introduced Stefan Halper to Carter Page says there were Republicans leaking damaging information against Trump to the press. Shrage was a longtime friend of Halper’s. He introduced him to Carter Page in 2016, while Halper was spying on the Trump campaign. On Sunday, he gave his first-ever interview with Maria Bartiromo.

Shrage says he was surprised that Halper was being paid so much for writing reports.  Maybe he was paid so much for spying. That would make more sense.

Shrage says there is a smoking gun:

“All these tentacles lead back to the “small group” including Stefan Halper in SpyGate, Christopher Steele at the center of Russiagate, Stefan Halper’s FBI handler. None of the Senate has subpoenaed or called these people to talk in four years. I think that is the real smoking gun. How are these people being protected?“

Shrage brought an audiotape of an interview he did with Halper. Shrage says it was curious that Halper knew about General Flynn’s trouble before it became public knowledge.

From The Gateway Pundit

Steven Shrage also added that Halper bragged that David Ignatius was one of his press media contacts. Shrage added, “So it seems to me that this is something that needs to be investigated.”

Shrage then added that he believes there were quite a few Republicans involved in leaking this damning smears against the Trump campaign.

Just yesterday it was reported that John Brennan has been told that he is not a target in Durham’s investigation and now we find out from Shrage that key members of the conspiracy have never been called to testify. I now have very serious doubts that there will be any justice meted out to the conspirators.

The Deep State allowed the fact that no evidence against Trump on Russian collusion was found. Neither from him or anyone in his campaign. They knew it in 2017 but withheld it until just after the 2018 election in order to give Democrats the edge.

Now, we were expecting to gain an edge as Deep State denizens were supposed to be indicted and prosecuted. I am afraid we have been duped again. I hope i’m wrong but I am scared that I am not.

Durham Subpoenaed Liberal Think Tank As Part Of Probe Into Steele Dossier: Report

Durham Subpoenaed Liberal Think Tank As Part Of Probe Into Steele Dossier: Report

Special prosecutor John Durham subpoenaed liberal think tank, the Brookings Institute over a former employee, Igor Danchenko and his connections to the bogus Steele Dossier paid for by the Hillary campaign and the DNC.

Danchenko was the alleged primary source for the Steele dossier, but he has disputed much of what went into the dossier and attributable to him. Some he said was embellished and some he said he knew nothing about.

It is said that the Brookings Institute cooperated fully in the Durham investigation. The institute was and is not the target in the investigation.

Danchenko had worked there as an analyst before moving on and he even landed a job at Steele-owned Orbis Business Intelligence.

He testified that he passed rumors on to Steele, who then represented the rumors as truth. Danchenko says that other parts of the dossier listing him as the source did not come from him.

The inspector general report found 17 inaccuracies in the FBI’s applications for FISA warrants against Carter Page, including a forged email from the CIA for which Kevin Clinesmith pleaded guilty to without so much as a slap on the wrist. I still don’t expect results from the Durham investigation.

The investigation has drug on forever and many key witnesses have never been called to the best of my knowledge.

From The Daily Caller

Investigations led by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, the Justice Department inspector general and several congressional committees all undermined the dossier’s central thesis of a “well-developed conspiracy of cooperation” between the Trump campaign and Russian government.

The IG report also debunked several specific claims of collusion that are found in the Steele dossier. One of those is Steele’s claim that Trump lawyer Michael Cohen visited Prague in August 2016 to meet with Kremlin insiders regarding hackers.

The general counsel for Brookings told The Times that Durham’s office issued its subpoena on Dec. 31, and that the think tank had turned over documents in February.

“Consistent with its practices in such matters, Brookings provided the responsive documents, none of which contained information associated with the reports known as the Steele dossier,” Michael Cavadel told The Times.

Smoking Gun Email Reveals Comey Told Clapper FBI Unable to ‘Sufficiently Corroborate’ Steele Dossier – Then Signed FISA Warrant Anyway

Smoking Gun Email Reveals Comey Told Clapper FBI Unable to ‘Sufficiently Corroborate’ Steele Dossier – Then Signed FISA Warrant Anyway

This is huge. James Comey sent an email to James Clapper informing him that the FBI could not verify the Steele Dossier.

Then, afterward, he signed a FISA application in which he had to swear that the information had been verified. That is illegal and the fact that he knew the document could not be verified means that this was an intentional act of subterfuge on Comey’s part.

The CIA had already told Comey that Carter Page had been a long-time operative for them, which meant he was not a spy for the Russians, rather he was an informant against them.

That is the document that Kevin Clinesmith forged and a crooked judge allowed him to walk free even though he confessed. And guess what else? The bar association did not disbar him for forging the document. Lucky for him he isn’t a Republican, he would have gotten life.

The FBI had received warnings that Steele was not credible and that he hated Trump. The FBI was also informed that the Hillary campaign put forth the Russian collusion hoax in order to direct attention away from her email server scandal.

Despite having all of this evidence, James Comey plotted and tried to carry out a coup against a duly elected president. Comey even wrote a book, A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership.

Well, Comey is an expert on lies but the truth is he had no loyalty to his job and his leadership in passing on lies is now well documented. But, don’t expect John Durham to indict Comey or anyone else for that matter.

I am convinced that he is in cover-up mode and another previously good man sold his soul to the devil.

His entire investigation was a farce and Bill Barr was part of it in my opinion. I hope they prove me wrong.

John Solomon via Just The News reported:

It was in that environment in the final days of the Obama administration that Clapper had written Comey earlier on Jan. 12, 2017 to inform the FBI that Clapper had decided to release a public statement declaring that the Steele dossier was only mentioned in an appendix to the intel community’s report because the “IC has not made any judgment that the information in the document is reliable.”

Comey tried to push back, suggesting Steele was deemed reliable (he actually had been terminated by the FBI for leaking by that time) and that his network included sources that might be in a position to know things (although the key source had already disavowed the information attributed to him in the dossier).

“I just had a chance to review the proposed talking points on this for today,” Comey wrote Clapper. “Perhaps it is a nit, but I worry that it may not be best to say ‘the IC has not made any judgment that the information in the document is reliable.’ I say that because we HAVE concluded that the source is reliable and has a track record with us of reporting reliable information; we have some visibility into his source network, some of which we have determined to be sub-sources in a position to report on such things; and much of what he reports in the current document is consistent with and corroborative of other reporting included in the body of the main IC report.

Republicans Angry Over Probation Sentence For Ex-FBI Lawyer Who Altered Email That Got Russia Collusion Investigation Started

Republicans Angry Over Probation Sentence For Ex-FBI Lawyer Who Altered Email That Got Russia Collusion Investigation Started

Representative Devin Nunes (R-CA) and other Republicans are angry about a sentence of probation that carries no prison time for ex-FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith after he pleaded guilty to doctoring a CIA email during the FBI’s attempts at surveillance against former Trump campaign associate Carter Page.  Page worked for the CIA, and that information was removed from the document.  Had that information not been altered the whole Russia collusion hoax would have died right there.  The millions of dollars spent on the collusion delusion hoax and putting the administration and the entire country through a Constitutional crisis would never have happened, but the court gave Clinesmith probation.

When he was Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee Nunes brought to light a whole lot of problems with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) system that went on during the Trump-Russia investigation.  Nunes said of the sentence, “Once again, we see a two-tiered system of justice where average Americans get investigated and imprisoned based on fake media narratives like ‘Russian collusion’ while government officials who perpetuated these abuses get off scot-free.”  Of the reputation of the entire Justice Department in the aftermath of what the Obama DOJ did Nunes said,  “The FBI, DOJ, and judicial system need to regain Americans’ trust, and this absurd sentencing won’t help.”

Judge James Boasberg of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, an Obama appointee of course, also serves on the FISA court, and he shot down the Justice Department’s request for up to six months behind bars. The judge gave Clinesmith probation with 400 hours of community service within a year and there will be no fine.  It was a slap on the wrist and now the American taxpayers are going to pay the millions it cost to do the hoax investigation.

Clinesmith not only worked on the nine-month-long FBI investigation into Russian collusion, which we now know was started by Hillary Clinton in an effort to get her illegal private email server off the front pages of the news, the fired and disgraced former FBI lawyer also worked on special counsel Robert Mueller’s team and he acknowledged to special counsel John Durham’s team that he falsified a document when fired and disgraced former FBI director James Comey’s FBI tried to renew a FISA warrant against Page, a volunteer campaign adviser to the Trump campaign.

Clinesmith edited a CIA email by removing information that showed Carter Page was working for the CIA, he was a good guy who was asked by the CIA to gather information on his business trips to Russia and he did every time they asked because he’s a patriot.  Clinesmith removed that information to make it appear that Page was doing something nefarious.  Page denied doing anything wrong since the beginning and he was never charged with a crime.

“Mr. Clinesmith lost his job, and his government service is what has given his life much of its meaning. He was also earning $150,000 a year — and who knows where the earnings go now. He may be disbarred or suspended from the practice of law … and may never be able to work in the national security field again,” Boasberg said when explaining his decision. “These are substantial penalties… What is more, he went from being an obscure career government lawyer to standing in the eye of a media hurricane. He has been threatened, vilified, and abused on a nationwide scale.”

The judge left out that Clinesmith did all of that to himself.  It’s not like he was a victim here.  He victimized an awful lot of people.

More Republicans lashed out when they heard of the weak sentence given out to Clinesmith.

“This sentence is absolutely despicable,” said Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX).

Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) took to social media and tweeted, “Very rare that dept of “JUST US” wld recommend jail time 4 one of their own But they did 4 Clinesmith former FBI attorney who falsified paperwork 2spy on Trump campaign+prop up phony collusion probe+violate civil liberties of Carter Page Outrageous DC judge gave NO prison time”

Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said, “This punishment trivializes what I believe to be a stunning breach of duty to the Court and to the American people”

Assistant US Attorney Anthony Scarpelli who works on the Durham team said to the court on Friday, “The defendant’s criminal conduct tarnished and undermined the integrity of the FISA program” adding “it has lasting effects on DOJ, the FBI, the FISC, the FISA process, and trust and confidence United States citizens have in their government.”

That trust is gone, and this sentence was like the final nail in the coffin.  Democrats never cared what the American people think and feel about government so long as they are in charge.

Clinesmith had the audacity to label what he did as a shortcut that had no malicious intent.

”I am fully aware of the significance of my actions and the crucial error in judgment I made,” Clinesmith declared to the Obama judge just before his sentence was announced. “I let the FBI, the Department of Justice, my colleagues, the public, and my family down. I also let myself down. I will live with the consequences and deeply-held feeling of regret, shame, and loss caused by it for the rest of my life.”  All things his lawyers prepped him to say.  I allege he would have done it again if he wasn’t caught.  I think there should be an investigation into all of the cases he worked on to see if he did “shortcuts” like this elsewhere during his career.

Step One: Understand FISA Abuse Investigation, Important Links to Follow, Key Points

On January 15, 2021 Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Republican Lindsey Graham (SC)  released 11 transcripts of interviews conducted during the Senate Judiciary Committee’s inquiry into the origins and aftermath of the Crossfire Hurricane Investigation.  (links at press release).

The information was released without advanced warning, and the interest in the report was immediate because it is the beginning of the place to begin to understand what is known as the “Russiagate Hoax” to take down and remove President Donald J. Trump as President of the United States, in the report are key intelligence facts on Crossfire Hurricane, FISA & Trump Campaign surveillance.

There is missing information in the Senate release.  For further reading follow to Epoch Times:

The poster known at Techno Fog, who I have verified is a legal professional is known for the highly accurate and professional understanding of legal documents posted something noteworthy:

“The Senate has released Crossfire Hurricane transcripts. Excerpt from discussion during Joe Pientka (SSA1) testimony: The “original Woods file is missing” from the 1st Carter Page FISA application.”

#Note Techno Fog has a group on Telegram, should his account get taken down by Twitter again.


James Rosen a Fox News correspondent spoke, on December 7, 2017,  about the details from the report which proved that former Secretary of State, former Senator, and former First Lady, failed two-time Presidential candidate, Hillary R. Clinton is implicated in the FISA court press release by Graham because she paid for the Dossier which led to the FISA Court.

“Today we learned Hillary paid for the Dirty Dossier, which means everything James Rosen reported on December 7, 2017 was true. He got a lot of heat for it, but he got it right! Comey’s FBI knew Hillary paid for it and lied to the FISA court!”

Something to think about, John Robert’s role in the FISA Court:

Documents Declassified Today Show Obama Administration Knew Steele Dossier Fake From Very Beginning

Documents Declassified Today Show Obama Administration Knew Steele Dossier Fake From Very Beginning

During his last days of his term in office, President Donald Trump is delivering on one of the problems he made that most of his supporters have been waiting very patiently for him to do: a massive declassification dump of FBI documents showing the Russia collusion delusion story was leaked in the finals weeks of the 2016 presidential election in order to cover up, or remove the focus from Hillary Clinton’s illegal private email server.

The documents that are supposed to be released on Friday include FBI interviews and reports for two of the top informants in the Russia investigation, former British spy Christopher Steele, and CIA asset and academic Stefan Halper.

President Trump authorized the release of a 12 – 14 inches stack of internal FBI and DOJ documents that detail significant problems in the investigation and they give a pretty detailed timeline of then the FBI first understood that the Steele dossier was crap, according to multiple government officials.

Part of the explosive discovery is an admission by Steele that he violated a confidential human source agreement with the FBI – he was a confidential informant – by leaking parts of his phony dossier to the news media in the last weeks of the election campaign because he hated Donald Trump and wanted to dilute the ramifications of Hillary Clinton’s email server scandal that was causing a negative impact on her campaign.  Steele made the confession in the fall of 2017 when he was interviewed by agents.

This means that fired and disgraced former FBI Director James Comey knew the whole time that the dossier was phony and he not only didn’t say anything, but he went ahead and allowed his FBI to move forward with the Russian collusion investigation.

Steele was hired by Hillary Clinton’s campaign’s law firm Perkins Coie to create anti-Trump documents in an attempt to link Trump to the Russians.  Steele told agents that he had two clients at that time – Hillary Clinton and the FBI – and that he stuck with Clinton over the FBI for leaking to the press.   He also told agents that Comey’s decision to reopen the Clinton email investigation in the fall of 2016 is what prompted him to leak his dossier information. to the press.

Those leaks led the FBI to end their contract with Steele, but they continued to use his information.  Current FBI Director Chris Wray knew about this for a year and has said nothing publicly, instead allowing the documents to be hidden by being classified.  Steele also admitted that his Russian collusion delusion, which was proven by Special Counsel Robert Mueller two years later, was leaked to the press to help Hillary’s email scandal.

The Trump administration declassified documents last year showing that the CIA warned President Obama and the FBI that it intercepted intelligence that showed Hillary Clinton personally sanctioned an operation to “vilify” Donald Trump with the phony story of Russian collusion as a way to take the focus off of her illegal private email server scandal.  Again, this means that Chris Wray knew and did absolutely nothing.

The angry grouch former CIA director John Brennan knew the whole time the dossier was a fraud, and he did nothing publicly to clear it up.  In fact, he continued to argue on cable news networks that Trump colluded with Russia.  What a scumbag.

The fact that the phony dossier was not corroborated by the FBI, and they used it as a source to get a FISA warrant to spy on former Trump campaign volunteer Carter Page, means that someone should go to prison.  John Brennan knew the whole time that the dossier was a fraud, and he also knew that Carter Page worked for the CIA whenever they asked him to obtain information when he did business in Russia, and he allowed page’s life to be turned upside down.  John Brenna did the equivalent of leaving a brother soldier behind.

The documents to be declassified will also reveal a connection between Steele and one of the Democrats’ key impeachment witnesses in the Ukraine scandal, the former Trump National Security Council

The soon-to-be-released records also expose a tantalizing connection between Steele, his primary source and one of the Democrats’ key impeachment witnesses in the Ukraine scandal, Fiona Hill, a  former Trump National Security Council Russia expert.  These cretins worked for the president and they went against him knowing the whole time there was nothing to it.

Steele alerted the FBI that he was introduced to his primary sub source by Hill, and he later told Hill that the sub source gave him information that made it into his memos.

The documents will also prove that the FBI gave instructions to Halper to work as an FBI informant to infiltrate the Trump campaign by acting like he wanted to work for the Trump campaign and then to target campaign advisers to allegedly either find out what the advisers knew about campaign ties with Russia or to plant such information.

The declassification of documents will start the beginning of a storm of controversy in the DC swamp.  The mainstream media will call it misleading and problem label it as Russian disinformation.  But one thing is clear.  The American people will finally get to see what the high-ranking officials in the Obama administration knew all along.

Report: John Durham Is Expanding Team Investigation Trump-Russia Probe, Making ‘Excellent Progress’

Report: John Durham Is Expanding Team Investigation Trump-Russia Probe, Making ‘Excellent Progress’

I am not going to get my hopes up because every time I do, I get disappointed. But the word on the street is that John Durham has expanded his staff. Specifically, he added prosecutors.

Does this mean he is getting ready to level charges won people? Or could he just be bringing them on board for a second opinion on charges to be brought?

This word comes at a time when the president and members of congress are becoming increasingly critical of AG Bill Barr and US Attorney John Durham.

This could be another head fake. It is also being reported that the investigation is coming along nicely. I’ll believe all of this once a lot of Democrats start dressing in orange every day for 3 to 5 years.

Barr recently named Durham as the special prosecutor and his job will carry on into the next administration no matter who wins. In that order, it is clearly written out that Durham is obligated to turn in a report to the DOJ that can be released to the public but probably won’t no matter who Biden taps should he win the election.

From The Daily Caller

Barr tapped Durham on May 13, 2019 to conduct an inquiry into the U.S. government’s intelligence-gathering activities against Trump campaign associates. The review has morphed into a criminal investigation. (RELATED: Barr Appoints Durham As Special Counsel)

Barr designated Durham as a special counsel to oversee the investigation on Oct. 19, 2020. The order said that Durham would be required to submit a report to the Justice Department that could be released to the public. Barr also said in the order that Durham could submit interim reports before the investigation has officially ended.

Barr said in a letter to Congress on Dec. 1 that he initially expected Durham to finish the investigation by this summer, but that progress was slowed by the coronavirus pandemic.

It appears that the Durham investigation has followed the same route that the DOJ IG Michael Horowitz took in his probe of the whole mess.

One person has already pleaded guilty to forging evidence to get a FISA warrant against Carter Page. A former FBI lawyer, Kevin Clinesmith is due to be sentenced soon. Durham has asked for prison time.

Trump On Sunday Morning Talk, ‘I am 125% Committed to Fighting, but I need Brave People to Help Save America Elections’

Trump On Sunday Morning Talk, ‘I am 125% Committed to Fighting, but I need Brave People to Help Save America Elections’

President Donald J. Trump had his first interview since the end of the 2020 Presidential election, on Sunday Morning Futures with Maria Bartiromo and talked at length about why he is contesting the election results, about where he believes his legal team will end up, and the conditions in America that have led to this mess.

At some points, Trump sounded resigned to the fact that the forces against him and the judicial system do not care about what he claims is widescale fraud and that the media and technology enable them to keep Americans from hearing his point of view. Trump said that the judicial system was set up so that they could deny his claims by telling him that he “lacked standing” to contest the results, and therefore they are not accepting his proof.

Trump also reminded viewers that the American people would have to be brave to defend a clean election system and that many people are too frightened to speak out. At some points in the interview, it seemed that people’s fear was the greatest obstacle to overcome, and there was a hint of defeat in trump’s comments on that front.

Trump did say he was not giving up yet, and he refrained from laying out his timeframe for when he would give up. He also would not give away all of the evidence his legal team had.


The following is a partial transcript of the discussion.

“The machines are suspect, the Dominion machines, and we have affidavits from many people that there were glitches where votes were moved, and that is a fraud, and we have many examples with tremendous amounts of votes. We have 3-5 glitches with thousands of votes each, and for the most part, they got away with it,” Trump said about the proof they have provided that the media is ignoring.

“I was called by top-notch political people saying, at 10 pm, that I had won, and that is when they [the Democrats] did massive dumps in battleground states, massive dumps,” he said, talking about the change in voting.

“All of sudden I went from winning a lot to losing by a little and in North Carolina they tried, we have affidavits that say that happened there, we won there, but they did 10s of 1000 Biden votes even in North Carolina,” Trump said.

Here are more of his comments:

“I could tell you who called me- and said I had won. One of the pollsters even told me that I needed to account for a 5% margin for cheating in Philadelphia, they cheat, and everyone knows they cheat. They cheat with Mail-in ballots, and we have people who will say they got 2-3-4- ballots; they were everywhere by the Millions. Dead people voted, and in many cases.

Dead people made application to go and vote after 10 years of being dead. Perhaps the FBI is involved; this election is a total fraud. People call me around the world and say that this si is the craziest election ever. Big Tech and the Media are not talking about this- and it is a situation that is bad; we have suppression in the press, in the greatest fraud in the history of our country- what is bigger from an electoral process?

This is the whole ball game, and they cheated. Biden did not get 80 million votes. I got 63 Million votes in 2016, and we thought that we had a path to an easy vote. This year I got 74 million votes, and we got more than we were trying to get. We thought it was over when the phony mail-in ballots started. This election was rigged and is a total fraud,” Trump said.

Bartiromo said, ” These are Serious charges- how will you prove it in the court.? Elections are the reason our young men and women will die on battlefields over people being allowed to vote, and if that is not true – this is a turning point in America.”

Bartiromo said that 68% Republicans and 28% believe there is fraud, according to this Reuters article.

Trump talked about the difficulty of putting out evidence into the public of the fraud.

We are trying to put the evidence in, and judges won’t let us put it in. In the Gettysburg hearing, we had people testify. The poll watchers in all of the states had trouble and were not allowed to count rooms. They were not allowed to watch- closed up the voting and counting, and new ballots came in. We have evidence, photos of them being brought in to county rooms. The mail-in ballots from all over- esp with Biden on the top, because they were in a rush.

We think they panicked because we were doing so well. The ballots with Biden only are suspicious. Tremendous numbers of ballots, for the sake of speed. The lawyers and judges say I do not have standing so that they won’t accept the proof.

We have people willing to sign sworn testimony until McCabe and Comey, who lied and didn’t go to jail. The courts won’t take the affidavits. The court says I do not have standing. I wanted to have one giant lawsuit, but they won’t take it- what kind of a court system do we have.

The same garbage machine, Dominion, will be used for the next election. You can vote for months ahead of schedule. Alito seems to have big problems. They are voting before and after, and they backdated ballots, and we have judges and electoral judges making deals, and the Governor in Georgia, I am ashamed I endorsed him. They used Covid as a means to stuff the ballot box. Biden did not get Millions of votes more than Obama and Clinton. In the Black Community, he got more votes than Obama. They cheated, and everyone knows that.

We can not have fake elections because like we have fake news and fake tech. The policitians need guts to stop all of that.

We will appeal to the Supreme Court; We have something good with Act 77, where the legislature is supposed to prove all this stuff; a lot of the cases that have been lost are not our cases, but other people’s cases.

Our poll watchers got thrown out of the buildings where there was counting. Thugs walked out poll watchers, and local news covered that. The national news won’t, and they are the enemy of our country- and people should know that big tech is making the media dangerous.

As far as the DOJ and the FBI, I asked what they are doing, but I try to stay out of it, and I don’t know. The DOJ and FBI are missing in action; where are they with Comey, McCabe, Brennan, who lied to congress they lied and leaked?

I see Carter Page’s lawsuit is good news. Where is Durham? They have been there a long time, and it is inconceivable, the FBI and DOJ should be looking; they keep moving along and serve the next president- there are people there who have been there a long time, and they have their own views.

With all of the fraud that is going, the FBI hasn’t nabbed someone or looked at Dominion? The votes they say are counted in foreign countries, and Canada won’t even use them, and they are based there. I talked to the Attorney General, but Canada does paper votes. The only way this is to save the ballot. Mail carriers are in trouble for selling ballots and adding ballots.

They found ballots with the name Trump on them- they were signed. We won’t win the election easily. No way Biden won in Black cities over Obama,” Trump said

Bartiromo asked, “What is Durham doing? Barr told us a while ago that there would be a problem with mail-in ballots, but nothing was done. This whole thing is a terrible situation, and it should not have been allowed to happen. Would you consider a special counsel?

“yes, I would consider a special prosecutor? They spent 48 Million dollars on the Mueller investigation- and they found nothing. Friends said I must be the cleanest person on Earth- after that. A pure hoax and a sad thing for the country. I could have done so much for the country, but I was under investigation from the day I came down the escalator. At that time, I didn’t know. All they do is investigate me- after federal investigations failed, they sent it to New York- they want a crack at it over there now. We were changing the country. China and Iran do not want me in. Iran and China want to make a deal, but they want to get rid of “America first,” so Democrats say they will drop it. Did you see that the other day?

Why isn’t the FBI not all over the place? They are not and it is a shame for this country.

It is hard to get into the Supreme court if it gets there; it is tough to get up there. We have 100’s of affidavits, but it is hard to get into the Supreme Court. That is what everyone is fighting for, we have many different forms of fraud, and we have evidence; we need to appeal to get to the Supreme Court.

Is there a path to victory? I hope so. It will take a brave judge and brave legislature. We have attorneys who were threatened, who eft. It will take a brave judge justice or both.

We should be heard by the Supreme Court, the Black community had little enthusiasm for Biden, and Hispanics as well had little enthusiasm for Biden; how did he get up to 80 million? John Mclaughlin- is a good pollster who even said so.

I will use 125% of my energy to fight voter fraud- but we need a judge who will hear it and a Supreme Court that will hear it. I will not change my mind, not even in 6 months, and if Republicans are willing to let this happen, we are never going to recover. Mail-in voting is a total disaster.
