Judicial Watch: Obama’s Ukraine Ambassador May Have Conducted Illegal Surveillance on Trump Associates

They are conducting an investigation and seeking government documents.

The non-partisan organization, Judicial Watch is conducting an investigation into the behavior of ousted U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine, Marie Yovanovitch, who they believe quite possibly abused her authority to unlawfully spy on President Donald Trump’s associates while in her position.

Yovanovitch reportedly made a list of prominent individuals closely tied to Trump for monitoring on social media platforms and in other ways. The state department’s Bureau of European and Eurasian Affairs received the request from the embassy staff in the Ukraine, who was later informed that the request was illegal.

“This is not an obscure rule, everyone in public diplomacy or public affairs knows they can’t make lists and monitor U.S. citizens unless there is a major national security reason,” a senior state department official claimed, according to Judicial Watch.

Yovanovitch is a long-tenured bureaucrat who served as the U.S. ambassador for Kyrgyzstan and Armenia before being appointed to her post by former President Barack Obama in 2016. She was removed from her position as Ambassador in May, but still lingers around the State Department in a different role.

Judicial Watch is issuing a public records request under the Freedom of Information Act to obtain “any and all records regarding, concerning, or related to the monitoring of any U.S.-based journalist, reporter, or media commentator by any employee or office of the Department of State between January 1, 2019 and the present.”

Yovanovitch testified to a joint House of Representatives subcommittee last week for over nine hours, where she made the contention that she lost her job due to her fight against corruption in the region. Some of her testimony was conveniently leaked to the press, as Democrats use the fake news media to build their narrative against the President.

“The harm will come when bad actors in countries beyond Ukraine see how easy it is to use fiction and innuendo to manipulate our system,” Yovanovitch said. “In such circumstances, the only interests that will be served are those of our strategic adversaries, like Russia, that spread chaos and attack the institutions and norms that the US helped create and which we have benefited from for the last 75 years.”

House Freedom Caucus member Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) pointed out the ridiculousness of the Democrat-led probe, which is taking place behind closed doors with the public having very limited knowledge of the nascent impeachment inquiry against the President.

“For goodness sake, now we’ve got almost 20 hours of testimony from two ambassadors, and the American people don’t know what happened in those closed-door sessions, other than what the majority has selectively cherry-picked and leaked out,” said Jordan, who serves as the leading Republican on the House Oversight and Reform Committee.

Judicial Watch hopes that their requests for information will shine some light on the proceedings, and perhaps expose another corrupt deep state actor working against the President in Yovanovitch.

Former U.S. Rep. Dana Rohrabacher CONFIRMS That He Floated Possible Presidential Pardon to Julian Assange

Trump’s alleged willingness to pardon Assange shows that he is still fighting the deep state.

Published

Yesterday, an attorney for WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange said in court that his client was offered a presidential pardon in exchange for Russia testimony. Former Congressman Dana Rohrabacher has now essentially confirmed those allegations.

“I spoke to Julian Assange and told him if he would provide evidence about who gave WikiLeaks the emails, I would petition the president to give him a pardon,” Rohrabacher said to Yahoo News. “He knew I could get to the president.”

Rohrabacher had a three-hour meeting with Assange in August 2017 while he was holed up at the Ecuadorian Embassy in Britain. Rohrabacher was hoping to gather proof that Seth Rich, a former DNC staffer murdered in 2016 who many now put on the Clinton kill count, or another individual leaked the information to WikiLeaks. The deep state claims the Russians were behind it.

He made it clear that he only requested “truthful” information from Assange, and in no way meant to coerce him to produce a “lie.” Rohrabacher talked to former White House chief of staff John Kelly after the fact about the meeting, whom he said was “courteous” but ultimately brushed him off.

White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham, who worked for the First Lady when this took place, is vehemently denying the allegations.

“The President barely knows Dana Rohrabacher other than he’s an ex-congressman,” she said in a statement. “He’s never spoken to him on this subject or almost any subject. It is a complete fabrication and a total lie. This is probably another never ending hoax and total lie from the DNC.”

Right now, Assange is facing 18 felony charges, including 17 under the Espionage Act, for allegedly helping former Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning hack information exposing deep state crimes and other illicit activities in 2010.

“Chelsea Manning’s plea and mitigation to the military commission has key passages which we will be relying on so we would seek to extract that and key press reports so the court has key materials,” said Assange’s attorney Edward Fitzgerald, who is arguing that Britain should not extradite his client back to the United States, during a preliminary court appearance this week.

“What we say is it is an abuse to seek extradition for a political offense so that is really part of the abuse argument,” he added.

Assange has repeatedly said on the record that Russia did not give him the information that his organization leaked from the DNC.

“Hillary Clinton has stated multiple times, falsely, that 17 U.S. intelligence agencies had assessed that Russia was the source of our publications. That’s false. We can say that the Russian government is not the source,” Assange said in Nov. 2016 in an interview with an Australian broadcaster.

“Well, the reason is obvious. They’re trying to delegitimize the Trump administration as it goes into the White House. They are trying to say that President-elect Trump is not a legitimate President,” Assange told Sean Hannity during a Fox News interview, explaining the genesis of the Russia lie.

“We can say, we have said, repeatedly that over the last two months that our source is not the Russian government and it is not a state party,” Assange told Hannity.

A pardon of Assange would be a devastating blow to the deep state, which has been battling to overthrow President Trump since his election.
