Nunes: Some Obama Officials ‘Went Dark’ On FISA Questions And Now Face Subpoenas

Published

House Intelligence Committee chairman Rep. Devin Nunes said that some Obama administration officials and related figures “went dark” and have not responded to his ten questions on FISA abuse, thus making them liable to receive subpoenas.

Nunes’ office directed Big League Politics to Nunes’ Monday interview with Fox News’ Martha MacCallum, which has not been reported on by other outlets.

Nunes sent questions to 12 people, including top Obama intelligence officials John Brennan and James Clapper, and plans to send the questions to 12 more people. Nunes said the questions center on when these individuals knew that the Democrats paid to finance the debunked Christopher Steele dossier, and who they told about the payments. That dossier was used to obtain FISA warrants to surveil Trump Tower and members of President Trump’s team. Robert Mueller is reportedly still using the dossier in his investigation.

Nunes set a midnight deadline Sunday for people to respond to his questions. But some of the people are not cooperating.

“Most of the people have responded, getting the information back to us promptly and on time,” Nunes said.

“There are a few people who have asked for an additional week, which we have went ahead and granted that time. There are a few people, though, that are not responding. They seem to have went dark. However, if they do not respond here shortly they will be getting subpoenaed to appear before Congress to be treated with a deposition,” Nunes said.

Nunes said that Brennan and Clapper both responded to his questions, but would not yet reveal what they said.

Big League Politics reported that Clapper tried to use a Supreme Court justice to block President Trump’s inauguration based on Russia innuendo back in January.

Big League Politics also reported on evidence that Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts was “hacked” by a surveillance operation led by Brennan and Clapper.

Rep. Mark Meadows is calling for a “second special counsel” to investigate FISA abuse by Obama-linked figures during the presidential campaign.

President Trump Rules Out Deploying Troops to Restore Order, Even as Riots Show No Signs of Slowing Down

Trump has opted to not show strength in the face of this crisis.

Just one day after President Donald Trump said he was willing to send military forces into states across the country to put down riots, he is reportedly backing off of the idea.

According to administration officials, Trump is happy with the result of yesterday’s enforcement measures during the riots – which included law enforcement officials being shot and police getting hit by SUVs. He will not be using the Insurrection Act to put troops on the streets to restore order anytime soon.

“The law is absolutely still on the table if things get really bad, but as of now he doesn’t think it’s going to have to go that far,” an administration official said to Axios.

“As President Trump has said, we cannot allow the voices of peaceful protesters to be drowned out by angry mobs, which is why the President will continue to take lawful, decisive action to stop the violence and restore the security of all Americans,” White House spokesman Judd Deere said.

Trump made the pivot after RINO Republicans whined about his harsh rhetoric as the country burns due to extreme left-wing riots.

“I don’t think the Pentagon’s keen on getting brought into this unless they absolutely have to. We need to restore order, but using active duty military troops in circumstances like this is a fairly rare occurrence,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said on Tuesday.

“I would prefer that these things be handled by the state and local authorities,” Sen. John Thune (R-SD) said. “You want to de-escalate, rather than escalate.”

Yesterday, Trump declared that he would show zero tolerance for any more rioting and looting in the streets:

President Donald Trump announced tonight that he will deploy military force in cities that are gripped by riots if blue-state governors do not get their acts in order and do so soon.

“My first and highest duty as president is to defend our great country and the American people,” Trump said in his speech. “I swore an oath to uphold the laws of our nation and that is exactly what I will do.”

Trump made it clear that he is an “ally of all peaceful protesters” who are protesting about injustices committed against George Floyd, who died during a police encounter with former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin. However, Trump will not allow the rioters to disgrace Floyd’s memory with their looting and wanton property destruction.

Trump announced that he would deploy “thousands and thousands of heavily armed soldiers, military personnel and law enforcement officers” in order to restore order in American cities. These forces could be deployed as soon as tonight considering how blue-state governors have done so poorly at keeping their states safe.

Earlier in the day, Trump had criticized governors throughout the country for their “weak” response to the growing violence.

President Trump has backed off at least temporarily from his boasts, showing yet again that his bark is much worse than his bite.
