A series of events have led the Deep State to act in ways Americans never thought possible. Does President Trump have them where he wants them?
Yesterday, TGP released a report about former and fired ‘FBI’ Agent Peter Strzok.
Today we have much more…
President Trump declassified a number of documents related to the Deep State’s attempted coup of his administration only days before he left office. More than a foot-high pile of documents were declassified by President Trump at this time. The Deep State FBI reportedly held on to these documents and would not release them up to that time. This was reported by Lou Dobbs on FOX Business on January 14, 2021. (Note that The Gateway Pundit was noted in this segment as well for its reporting on the Jan 6 Capitol protests where we already knew that there were bad actors involved.)
On January 19, 2021, President Trump made it official and per a memorandum announced he was releasing a trove of documents related to the Deep State Russiagate scam. President Trump noted that the FBI objected to his declassification request on January 17, a few days earlier. Nevertheless, President Trump ordered the documents to be released.
Much later, in February of 2022, Senator Chuck Grassley released a report where the noted that these documents that were declassified by President Trump have never been released by the Deep State FBI.
More than a year after then-President Trump directed details of the government’s Crossfire Hurricane investigation to be declassified, the Justice Department continues to hide those important records. Senate Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations Ranking Member Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) today are calling on the department to promptly comply with the declassification directive.“We remain concerned that over one year from the date then-President Trump directed the Justice Department to declassify certain Crossfire Hurricane records the Justice Department has not only failed to declassify a single page, the Department has failed to identify for Congress records that it knows with certainty to be covered by the declassification directive.,” the senators wrote in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland.
President Trump’s team added more to this case in June 2022, while Hillary and the others identified in the case asked to be removed from the case.
Then on July 22, 2022, the judge over the case at that time, U.S. District Judge Donald M. Middlebrooks, who was appointed by Bill Clinton, whose wife Hillary is named in the case, agreed to remove the five FBI-related individuals from the case and insert the DOJ in their place.
A federal judge has removed fired FBI director James Comey, fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, fired FBI agent Peter Strzok, resigned FBI lawyer Lisa Page, and former FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith as personal defendants in Donald Trump’s RICO lawsuit against Hillary Clinton and other individuals and institutions…
…Judge Middlebrooks agreed to substitute the government as a defendant instead of Comey, McCabe, Strzok, Page, and Clinesmith. However, Middlebrooks chose not to immediately rule on the broader request to jettison the litigation against the government as a substituted party.
In his three-page order, Middlebrooks characterized Trump’s lawsuit as “sprawling” and recited, without much additional commentary, the rote mechanisms of Westfall Act Substitution: individuals were sued; they were acting within the scope of their employment as ascertained by the Attorney General; and the court “was required” to accept the Attorney General’s certification.
Middlebrooks noted that he could technically determine that the named federal officers were “acting outside the scope of [their] employment” and that Trump could “litigate the question” if he so chooses. If Trump does contest the matter, Trump “has the burden of altering the status quo by proving that the employee acted outside the scope of employment.” That will be difficult to overcome, Middlebrooks suggested, because the AG’s “certification constitutes prima facie evidence that the employees were acting within the scope of their employment.”
Comey, McCabe, Strzok, Page, and Clinesmith all now appear as terminated parties in the court docket.
Judge Middlebrook never should have made that ruling and never should have taken over the case. He should have recused himself. His appointment to the court was made by Bill Clinton – Hillary Clinton’s husband! Also, the bigger item of note is why did the DOJ offer to substitute these five individuals in the first place? Three were fired, a fourth was convicted of at least one crime related to the case, and the other, Lisa Page, resigned from the FBI.
When in US history has the government represented fired employees and a convicted former employee, all who participated in what most all Americans would consider a coup of the Trump Presidency, in a court case against them?
Much more will be revealed…
