GUS,

All of that attitude began with Bill Clinton. I remember it well, because my son had just graduated and my daughter was in grade school, and it was embarrassing to have to talk about Monica. And it only got worse.

Ariel is fascinated with birds. She stares at my Basil Ede's on the walls in the living room, and if you get close enough when you are holding her, she tries to reach out and touch them. We got out our Field Guide to NA birds, and she started turning the pages to see all the birds.

Supposed to rain all weekend. I was going to take her to the zoo to see the birds, but we're now going to the Ga Aquarium instead. They have penguins and puffins so close enough.

I once spent four hours in the rookery at Marineland in St Augustine with her mom who was also big into birds when she was about 6. She knew every state bird and could relate all sorts of facts about them when she was 6.

Funny that her daughter is enamored of them, too.

More Doubts About Mr. Steele
Including an appearance by none other than Sidney Blumenthal.

By The Editorial Board
Feb. 7, 2018 7:09 p.m. ET
376 COMMENTS
The case of the FBI and Christopher Steele gets curiouser and curiouser. In the latest news, GOP Senators Chuck Grassley and Lindsey Graham late Tuesday released a less redacted version of their criminal referral letter to the Justice Department concerning Mr. Steele, who wrote the now famous dossier alleging Russian collusion with Donald Trump. The letter supports the recent House Intelligence Committee claims of surveillance abuse and offers new evidence that the Clinton campaign may have been more involved than previously known.

Democrats claim the House Intel memo distorts the FBI’s actions in obtaining in October 2016 an order from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court to monitor former Trump aide Carter Page. But the Grassley-Graham referral makes public for the first time actual text from the FBI’s FISA application, as well as classified testimony the FBI gave the Senate Judiciary Committee about the dossier and FISA application.

In particular, the referral rebuts the Democratic claim that the FBI told the FISA court about the partisan nature of the Steele dossier. “The FBI noted to a vaguely limited extent the political origins of the dossier,” says the letter. And “the FBI stated that the dossier information was compiled pursuant to the direction of a law firm who had hired an ‘identified U.S. person’—now known as Glenn Simpson of Fusion GPS,” the firm that hired Mr. Steele.

But, adds the referral letter, “the application failed to disclose that the identities of Mr. Simpson’s ultimate clients were the Clinton campaign and the DNC [Democratic National Committee].” That’s not being honest with the judges who sign off on an eavesdrop order.

The referral also confirms the House memo’s finding that the FBI “relied heavily” on Mr. Steele’s dossier claims, as well as on a Yahoo News article for which Mr. Steele was the main source. And the letter notes that “the application appears to contain no additional information corroborating the dossier allegations against Mr. Page.”

James Comey, who was running the FBI at the time of the FISA fiasco, told the Senate Judiciary Committee as much in March 2017. According to the referral, when Mr. Comey was asked “why the FBI relied on the dossier in the FISA applications absent meaningful corroboration,” he said this was “because Mr. Steele himself was considered reliable due to his past work with the Bureau.”

In other words, the FBI rested its wiretap application on the credibility of a source who was working at the direction of the Clinton campaign. The FBI also seems to have closed its eyes to evidence that Mr. Steele wasn’t honest. The FBI acknowledges that it told Mr. Steele not to speak to the media about the dossier. Yet in September 2016 the ex-British spy briefed reporters about the FBI’s investigation and the dossier, which resulted in the Yahoo News article. The Clinton campaign cited that article on TV and social media to attack the Trump campaign. This was about a month prior to the FBI filing its first FISA application.

Yet the FBI’s October application told the FISA court that, “The FBI does not believe that [Steele] directly provided this information to the press.” Whether Mr. Steele lied to the FBI, or the FBI was too incompetent to verify that he was the source of the Yahoo News story, the result is the same: The FISA court issued a surveillance order on the basis of false information about the credibility of the FBI’s main source.

Even after Mr. Steele said under oath in court filings in London that he had briefed Yahoo News, and this fact was reported by U.S. media in April 2017, the FBI didn’t tell the FISA court in any subsequent wiretap application.

The Grassley-Graham referral also drops the stunning news that Mr. Steele received at least some of the information for his dossier from the Obama State Department. The letter redacts the names involved. But the press is now reporting, and our sources confirm, that one of the generators of this information was none other than Sidney Blumenthal. GOP Rep. Trey Gowdy, who has seen the documents, told Fox News “that would be really warm” when asked if Mr. Blumenthal is one of the redacted names.

Mr. Blumenthal has declined comment to several media outlets. But our readers will recall that he is a long-time Hillary Clinton operative whom President Obama barred from an official role at State but was later discovered to have sent her policy and political advice via her private email server. This revelation raises questions about the degree to which the Clinton team was involved in the Steele-Fusion effort from the beginning.

Some of our media friends are so invested in the Steele dossier, or in protecting their Fusion pals, or in Donald Trump’s perfidy, that they want to ignore all this. But journalists ought to tell the complete story.

The best way to learn what’s true and false in the Russian influence story is radical transparency, and the Trump Administration should declassify all four FISA applications on Mr. Page and all of the documents behind them. Meanwhile, thanks to the two Senators for helping get closer to the truth.

anonamom

Yes,it's Zac-- a friend who records the show caught his name, so I was able to share my assessment of his totally unhinged---and completely ineffective--appearance last night.

I do not know how Jason Chaffetz managed to not deck him, as he sat there screaming--really, screaming, like that adolescent girl at Yale we saw how many times yelling at her college dean who told them Halloween costumes shouldn't be regulated--that Chaffetz "hates Law enforcement."

Total Beta guy, btw.

I watched four hours of those liars last night---Nunes is right--they are over the target. They are more than scared, and they've got nothing.
Spread the word. Let your Congress critter know you are counting on them getting to the truth.

Pray.

And "smarmy liar" pretty much sums him up.

The Infamous Ignatz

Aside from the small detail that Strzok and Page's texts demonstrate an immense perversion of criminal justice and law enforcement, they also reveal two people positively made for each other.
A larger pair of whining, negative, hyper-critical, conceited a-holes it would be hard to imagine. They even manage to be conceited and self loathing at the same time. Other than the sainted Obamas, who they weirdly idealize, it seems like nobody is up to their high falutin standards.

I hope it's not wrong of me to wish they really were having an affair and end up together because I've got a feeling their other significant others would be a lot better off without either one.

I am pretty sure that to be an FBI agent you have to be either a lawyer or an accountant. We know Lisa Page is a lawyer.

I am not impressed with either's verbal skills or deep thinking.

Regardless of corruption, if the FBI and DOJ are full of people like that, a wholesale house-cleaning is in order.

Absolutely, MM. at some point, if the good people that were told make up the majority of FBI agents turn a blind eye to deranged, dangerous people like Page et al, you really can’t consider any of them good.

Its like the colleagues of the Minnesota cop who killed the Australian woman. If they all knew he was unfit to be set loose on the streets with Gun and badge, but they all just looked the other way and shut up about it, then they’re not fit to be cops either.

I consider myself a fiscal conservative but have no problem with the Senate-brokered deal because the real benefit of the agreement is that we get to face the November by-election knowing that growing a fiscally conservative filibuster-proof majority matters.

In the meantime, we can establish better regulation over spending programs, and perhaps save more in other ways.

Draining the swamp is hard but necessary.

jimmyk

The Obama apologists are claiming that of course "potus wants to know everything," because he was getting briefed about Russia's interference in the election. Nothing to do with the Hillary e-mail investigation. The problem with that theory is that if you look at the texts that day and the surrounding days, their pretty clearly focused on the e-mail issue. For example, they talk about the "breaking on NYT.com" story on the emails. There's no mention that I saw of Russia and the election.

They need to be asked under oath what those "talking points" were for Comey.

Jordan, a former Freedom Caucus chairman, said earlier in the day that he was disappointed by the tentative deal and expressed surprise that Ryan — who has staked his political career on being a fiscal hawk — would go along with the proposal.

“It’s a terrible deal,” Jordan said. “I never thought Speaker Ryan would be supportive of this … I just never thought the Speaker would go here with these high numbers.”

Speaking to reporters after the meeting, Brooks slammed the deal as a “debt junkie’s dream.”

“I don’t know if we have enough votes amongst the members to stop this legislation,” the outspoken Alabama conservative said. “All I know is that unfortunately those who vote for this bill are betraying our country’s future and they are selling out our kids and our grandkids.

“I am baffled why the Republican Party has turned into such a big spending party. It is one thing to spend money; it is another thing to spend money you don’t have,” Brooks went on. “No American family can operate that way; no American business can operate that way, and it is folly to believe that the United States of America can operate that way.”

Some defense hawks were also upset over the proposal because of the inclusion of the debt ceiling.

Rep. Bradley Byrne (R-Ala.), a member of the House Armed Services Committee, said he was prepared to swallow the spending boost for domestic programs in exchange for the military bulk-up, but he was thrown off by raising the debt ceiling as part of the deal.

He declined to take a position on the package until he sees the final details, however.

Part of Ryan’s pitch to the conference, according to lawmakers who attended, was that the budget deal not only delivers a long sought-after spending boost for the military, but it also clears the way for an honest debate over immigration if lawmakers don’t have the debt ceiling, the threat of government shutdown and other unresolved issues looming over their heads.

http://thehill.com/homenews/house/372805-gop-fiscal-hawks-revolt-against-senate-budget-deal

The disappointing thing about the budget deal is Trump had maneuvered the Dems into a weak, untenable position from which he could have extracted largely what he wanted from them.
After that shutdown disaster they were in a box but for some reason he let them out without taking his pound of flesh.
For pretty much the first time Trump has underperformed expectations and given a bit of credence to the "he's not really a conservative" claim.
of course congress did the deal but he must have greenlighted it beforehand and has praised it subsequently.

In the press conference yesterday Sanders was asked if the President was ready to sign whatever was coming out of the Senate. She said that they need to see a final bill but they did like the direction that the Senate was heading.

Was there a statement from Trump that praised the Senate's bill to a greater extreme than her response?
