Wed, 08/05/2020 – 21:20Former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates threw former FBI Director James
‘higher loyalty’ Comey under the bus on Wednesday, telling the Senate
Judiciary Committee that the FBI’s January, 2017 interview of former national security adviser Michael Flynn was done without her authorization – and she was upset when she found out about it.
“I was upset that Director Comey didn’t coordinate that with us and acted unilaterally,” Yates said.
We would note that Yates wasn’t too upset to warn the incoming Trump
administration about Flynn just 48 hours after the FBI launched a perjury trap against him.
Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC) asked Yates: “Did Comey go rogue?” – to which Yates replied “You could use that term, yes.”

Yates said she also took issue with Comey for not telling her
that Flynn’s communications with then-Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak
were being investigated and that she first learned about this from President Barack Obama during an Oval Office meeting. Yates said she was “irritated” with Comey for not telling her about this earlier.
That meeting, which took place on Jan. 5, 2017, was of great interest
to Graham, who wanted to know why Obama knew about Flynn’s
conversations before she did. Graham and other Republicans have
speculated that Obama wanted Flynn investigated for nefarious purposes.

Yates testified that Obama wanted to find out why the Kremlin suddenly backed down from threats to retaliate against sanctions over 2016 election meddling, leading to the DOJ’s discovery of the
communications between Flynn and the ambassador, Sergei Kislyak.
“The purpose of this meeting was for the president to find out whether – based on the calls between Ambassador Kislyak and Gen. Flynn –
the transition team needed to be careful about what it was sharing with Gen. Flynn,” said Yates – who suggested that the meeting was not about influencing an investigation, which she added would have “set off alarms for me.”
Yates was also asked whether former VP Joe Biden brought up the 1799 Logal Act at a January 5 Oval Office meeting about the Flynn
investigation, which prohibits American citizens from communicating with
foreign governments or officials without authorization “in relation to
any disputes or controversies with the United States, or to defeat the measures of the United States.”
Yates said she couldn’t recall if Biden mentioned it – but had a vague recollection of Comey bringing it up either at the Oval Office meeting or later.
Sen Graham: “Did [former VP Joe Biden] mention the Logan Act?”
Sally Yates: “I don’t remember him saying much of anything.”

Later during testimony, Yates said that she had no idea that the FISA applications to spy on the Trump campaign were riddled with false evidence – and also denied knowledge that her own deputy, Bruce Ohr, had facilitated meetings between the FBI and UK operative Christopher
Steele, who assembled the infamous Clinton-funded dossier which was used
to support the FISA warrant against former campaign aide Carter Page.
Yates claimed that if she knew this was the case, she wouldn’t have signed off on the warrant.

Meanwhile, Sen. Hawley called for a “cleaning of house” at the FBI and DOJ.

Catch up quick: QAnon is a far-right conspiracy theory that alleges the “deep state” is engaged in a global fight to take down President Trump.
QAnon rose out of the 2016 Pizzagate conspiracy theory and has grown into a decentralized network that analyzes cryptic prophecies dropped in remote online forums by “Q,” who claims, without ever offering
evidence, to be a Trump administration official with high-level clearance.
…Of course, the readily confirmable fact is that the Qanon narrative has proven to be vastly more reliable, and a better predictive model, than the mainstream media narrative. Which means that it would be better
described as a sprawling network of uncomfortable truths that is seeping
into the public consciousness.
Italian nationalist leader and former Interior Minister Matteo Salvini could face up to 15 years in prison for rejecting third-world migrants as the country’s deep state takes aim at the populist firebrand.
The Italian Senate voted 149-141 last week to remove parliamentary immunity for Salvini. This will allow the Italian deep state to charge Salvini for his decision as Interior Minister to detain third-world migrants at sea who were trying to land on Italian shores.
The [Deep State]/Mainstream Media is now struggling with events. They are now being called out and people are waking up quickly. Trump decided to cancel the convention in Florida. Watch what happens next. More declass info has been dripped out. Treason and sedition arrests are coming soon. The message is clear. The silent majority is ready to stand up. Flags out. Message received. That’s a lot of flags. More from the X22 Report….
Comment by tonytran2015: This looks more likely to be the work of an Intelligence Service. The deceased suspect may had been framed.
UPDATE: A suspect in the fatal shooting has been
identified as attorney and men’s rights activist Roy Den Hollander,
according to the New York Post.
…The deceased suspect was an attorney who had a case before Judge
Salas in 2015, sources said. A FedEx package addressed to Judge Salas
was discovered in the car, sources said…
The deceased suspect connected to the shooting of
federal judge Esther Salas’ son and husband was a lawyer who had a case
before Salas in 2015, according to ABC News.
The FBI says it’s looking for one suspect. The Marshals Service is also carrying out its own investigation, since the agency takes its responsibility to protect federal officials “very seriously”.
So far, authorities have refused to confirm that the Epstein connection might have been a motive. A friend of the judge’s said Salas hadn’t received any threats recently…
Comment by tonytran2015: Despite claims to the contrary by MSM, Trump’s supporters claim that Trump’s side put more action into this investigation.
…There was little Jeffrey Epstein wouldn’t do to satisfy his lust for young women and girls. It included spending millions of dollars masterminding a worldwide sex-trafficking operation. Countless innocent lives were destroyed. A year ago Epstein was arrested and a month later he died in custody. Investigators though refused to let this scandal go to the grave with him. Instead they shifted their attention to his high-profile friends. One of them is the Queen’s son, Prince Andrew, who continues to dodge requests from the FBI for an interview. But late this week there was a significant breakthrough in the case with the arrest of socialite Ghislaine Maxwell. She’s accused of being Epstein’s right-hand woman and has been charged with multiple child sex offences. As Tara Brown reports, for the first time in a long time, the victims in this wicked saga are feeling relief rather than terror.
…In January 1983 Rebel Magazine published an article written by Jones,
which is republished in full, with no editing below (except images). The
JFK assassination was one of the biggest events to have ever hit America and Jones assumes that the reader of the time would have known
quite a bit about it. This article makes for fascinating reading whether you believe the official state narrative or alternative theories. Last October, Statista concluded from surveys that 61 percent of Americans believe JFK was not killed by Oswald alone and that others were involved.

In 1995, Maria Farmer met Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell. Epstein claimed to help manage Victoria’s Secret with Maxwell as his model scout. But it was a ruse: Maxwell was procuring girls for Epstein. When Maria went to the FBI, she was the very first victim to officially report Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell to the authorities. But by going to police, Maria felt the full force of Ghislaine Maxwell’s fury.
