Whistleblower’s Lawyer: Comey Should Be Indicted For Obstruction of Justice For Covering Up ‘The Hammer’ Surveillance Program

Published

on

WASHINGTON — Freedom Watch president and Judicial Watch founder Larry Klayman has written an open letter calling for fired FBI director James Comey to be indicted for obstruction of justice for burying evidence from his whistleblower client that could confirm President Trump’s claims of being surveilled by Obama administration intelligence officials.

Information from a WikiLeaks release also confirms the existence of the program used to spy on Trump, according to a national security insider close to the story.

Klayman represents former NSA and CIA contractor Dennis Montgomery. Leaked audiotapes from a civil case in Arizona show Montgomery telling Sherriff Joe Arpaio and investigator Mike Zullo about his work for a covert surveillance program. Real estate mogul Timothy Blixseth — whose wife is a former associate of Montgomery — said that Montgomery compiled evidence proving that Obama administration officials John Brennan and James Clapper oversaw surveillance of Trump. Big League Politics featured those audiotapes, courtesy of a whistleblower Soundcloud page, Friday.

“We don’t have any comment,” the FBI told Big League Politics.

Klayman delivered “47 hard drives and over 600 million pages of information” to then-FBI director James Comey’s general counsel James Baker. But Comey sat on the information, prompting Klayman to call for an obstruction of justice charge.

Klayman wrote: “As I explained in the below embedded radio appearance at www.raffradio.com, where I exchanged views with the talented host, Franklin Raff, it is Comey himself, along with his staff, that deep-sixed their claimed investigation of Dennis Montgomery, a NSA/CIA whistleblower who came forward over two years ago, under grant of immunity, with 47 hard drives and over 600 million pages of information and then provided sworn testimony to FBI Agents Walter Giardina and William Barnett, showing that the intelligence agencies had not only “wiretapped,” in the form of unconstitutional surveillance, Trump, his associates and his family, but also other prominent Americans such as the chief justice of the Supreme Court, other justices, 156 judges and persons like myself who challenge or even criticize government misconduct and illegality. In short, the president’s firing of Comey was long overdue. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who recommended the former FBI director’s termination, should now empanel a grand jury to investigate Comey for having covered up and subverted this would-be FBI investigation of mass illegal surveillance in violation of the Fourth Amendment.”

Klayman also wrote a March 21 letter to House Intelligence chairman Devin Nunes asking him to call Montgomery to testify, at just the moment when Trump first made the public aware via Twitter that he was allegedly the subject of a surveillance effort.

Montgomery was embroiled in controversy during his time at the Nevada-based firm eTreppid Technologies, where Blixseth claims Montgomery was working on the surveillance program under the oversight of Brennan and Clapper. eTreppid’s technology — which was purportedly supposed to track terrorist signals in Al-Jazeera broadcasts — caused President Bush to raise the terror threat alert over Christmas 2003. This spawned a Playboy hit piece on Montgomery and eTreppid. But Blixseth says in the audiotape conversation that eTreppid was not actually working on the Al-Jazeera mission. It was just a front for the alleged surveillance operation. Regardless of whatever evidence eTreppid found that compelled Bush to raise the terror alert, the mainstream media made Montgomery the fall guy for it back then.

Enthusiasm for Congress to call Montgomery to testify — and for the FBI to disclose information given to them by Montgomery and Klayman — is building

Wikileaks’ Vault 7 release of CIA information also includes information about a program colloquially known to insiders as “The Hammer,” or HAMR. A well-sourced computer expert matches the program exposed by Assange to the program allegedly worked on by Montgomery.

President Trump’s Approval Rating Soars as the Public Increasingly Supports His Coronavirus Response

The public supports Trump’s crisis response.

Published

on

A Gallup poll has shown that President Trump’s approval rating has jumped to 49 percent as the coronavirus pandemic continues.

His approval rating has jumped five points in the past month. This matches his all-time high, which was previously achieved in late January and early February. Ninety-two percent of Republicans support the President, while 43 percent of independents and 13 percent of Democrats approve of Trump.

Americans also approve of the way President Trump has handled the coronavirus pandemic. Sixty percent of Americans support Trump’s disaster response while 38 percent of Americans disapprove. Ninety-four percent of Republicans support his response, while 60 percent of independents and 27 percent of Democrats support how Trump has handled coronavirus.

“The Trump administration has received some criticism for its response to the COVID-19 pandemic — including that the president downplayed the threat, at least up until his nationally televised address on March 11,” Gallup noted in their report.

“On March 16, Trump acknowledged the seriousness of the situation by urging people to avoid gatherings of more than 10 people and to have workers and students stay home if possible. The administration has had daily press conferences since then to update the nation on what the federal government is doing to address the situation,” they added.

It is not uncommon for an incumbent president to gain in popularity during a crisis, as every commander-in-chief in office during a serious threat has gained support from the public as a result.

“Historically, presidential job approval has increased when the nation is under threat. Every president from Franklin Roosevelt through George W. Bush saw their approval rating surge at least 10 points after a significant national event of this kind. Bush’s 35-point increase after 9/11 is the most notable rally effect on record,” Gallup noted.

Although he is peaking right now, President Trump has consistently shown strength in various polls for many months as the public realizes the fake news is lying about his administration:

New polling from Quinnipiac released Thursday shows President Donald Trump handily defeating every major Democratic presidential candidate in hypothetical general election matchups…

Well-known Democrats Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden are the most competitive candidates against Trump in the Wisconsin general election, and even they lose by a considerable seven points to the incumbent Republican president.

Even Pete Buttigieg, an Indiana mayor who claims to have a credible path to victory in midwestern states the President grabbed from the Democratic Party in 2016, appears nowhere near seriously competing in the state.

The polling suggests Democrats will have a serious uphill battle in order to contend for the electoral votes of midwestern states such as Wisconsin, in 2020 or other future Presidential elections.

President Trump’s polling in statewide and national surveys has consistently improved as the Democratic Primary erupts in contention, suggesting that the divisions within the Democratic Party may bode well for his re-election.

The state was formerly assumed to be a safe blue state, before Trump won its electoral votes in a shocking upset in 2016. Pennsylvania and Michigan also went Republican for the first time in decades in Trump’s victory, and will prove essential to the election in 2020. Polling of the latter two states shows closer general election contests than in Wisconsin.

President Trump is showing his leadership bona fides during the crisis, and the public is thrilled with the way he is handling the coronavirus pandemic.
