    Watchdog group Judicial Watch released 42 pages of heavily redacted State Department documents obtained through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), which reveal that the Obama State Department provided Senator Ben Cardin (D-MD) a “dossier of classified information on Russia” in order to undermine President Trump, according to Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.

    “These documents show the Obama State Department under John Kerry gathered and sent its own dossier of classified information on Russia to Senator Ben Cardin, a political ally in the U.S. Senate, to undermine President Trump,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “Judicial Watch will pursue information on who pulled this classified information, who authorized its release, and why was it evidently dumped just days before President Trump’s inauguration.”

    The documents show Russian political interference in elections and politics in countries across Europe.

    According to a March 2017 report in the Baltimore Sun: “Maryland Sen. Ben Cardin received classified information about Russia’s involvement in elections when the Obama administration was attempting to disseminate that material widely across the government in order to aid in future investigations, according to a report Wednesday … Obama officials were concerned, according to the report [in The New York Times], that the Trump administration would cover up intelligence once power changed hands.” –Judicial Watch

    In March 2017, Former Obama Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense, Evelyn Farkas, made some stunning admissions during an interview with MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski.

    While discussing the mad scramble by the Obama administration to collect and preserve intelligence on alleged Russian election hacking before Obama left office, it appears that Farkas accidentally implicated the Obama White House in the surveillance of Trump’s campaign staff:

    The Trump folks, if they found out how we knew what we knew about the Trump staff dealing with Russians, that they would try to compromise those sources and methods, meaning we would not longer have access to that intelligence. –Evelyn Farkas

    Furthermore, Farkas effectively corroborated the March New York Times article which cited “Former American officials” as their anonymous source regarding efforts to leak this surveillance on the Trump team to Democrats across Washington DC.

    I became very worried because not enough was coming out into the open and I knew that there was more. We have very good intelligence on Russia. So then I had talked to some of my former colleagues and I knew they were trying to also get information to the hill.

    That’s why you have the leaking. Evelyn Farkas

    Farkas resigned from the Obama administration in September of 2015 – begging the question as to how she knew so much about what the previous administration and intelligence community was up to.

    A section of the documents obtained by Judicial Watch is titled “Pro-Kremlin NGOs and Think Tanks,” refers to “the Russian government funded Caucasus Research Network, which helped to spread anti-EU and NATO reports throughout the region. Also discussed is the Human Rights Accountability Global Initiative, which was founded by Natalia Veselnitskaya. The Initiative was reportedly “working to erode support for the Magnitsky Act (which imposes sanctions on … gross human rights violations). The organization screened an anti-Magnitsky film at Washington’s Newseum in June.”

    Veselnitskaya infamously obtained a meeting with Donald Trump Jr. through associates of opposition research firm Fusion GPS, wherein she attempted to discuss the Magnitsky act before Trump Jr. shut down the meeting.

    The Magnitsky Act attracted public attention earlier this year when it was reported Veselnitskaya obtained a meeting with Donald Trump Jr. with the purpose of seeking to undermine the act. It was reported that Russian President Vladimir Putin wanted to repeal the act at least in part because it targeted top Russian officials who had committed human rights violations and were the beneficiaries of a $230-million tax fraud that Magnitsky exposed. –Judicial Watch

      2. Rising interest rates and the economy…

        The Federal Reserve had only had THREE interest rate hikes in the past ELEVEN YEARS. Yet, there were THREE since Trump became president last year.

        Why all the frequent interest rate hikes NOW?

        I have read that multiple rate hikes could (or would) crash the economy. I guess time will tell.

        Our economy is still deeply troubled. President Obama was able to prop up the economy in the short term, at the expense of our long term economic future.

        I believe difficult times lie ahead. In recent months, we have seen numerous disasters (earthquakes, hurricanes, monsoons, floods, heat wave, drought and reduced crop yield (across Europe), around the world as well as growing tensions (North Korea, Russia). The table is set for the next financial crisis. We need to be prepared.

        • holy cow B from CA your post was really dumb

      7. I’ll make a prediction.

        1. No one will go to jail over this

        2. No one will lose their pension over this

        They can run roughshod over US Law, The US Constitution and Bill Of Rights with no fear before they committed these acts, during their commission and post commission.

        They are above the law pure and simple.

      10. Just like the inner city thugs, no one is going to jail.

      11. That’s more evidence of the Democrats’ election meddling, not any of Trump’s. Trump only expressed a half-humorous hope that Russia might enlighten the American electorate with more of Hillary Clinton’s emails evidencing her Democrat rigging of the election for herself. The Democrats are the ones who need to be investigated–for the same thing they’re mirror-image witch-hunting Trump.

      12. The Greatest Show On Earth! Deception is all that comes to mind. If Trump were the real deal, and not one of ‘them’, he would have had Obama (a.k.a. Barry Soetoro, a.k.a. Soebarkah, a.k.a. Harrison Bounel) or whatever his real name is Arrested on the spot at his inauguration. Trump ran on the Fact that Obama usurped the Office Of The President and NOTHING he did or signed in Our Name is legal or binding. He Must be Publicly Arrested under the Alien and Sedition Acts, Publicly Tried for Espionage, and then Publicly and Legally Executed for Treason. This Is A Duty and All 535 Congressional members Allowed this to happen.



        All public servants are Accountable. So let us address Accountability.

        The Oath of Office is a Contract which financially binds you, the public servant, to honor The Oath Of Office. The Oath to which you swore to Protect The Constitution.

        1.You are a trustee of the public trust.
        2.You have specific duties to the People you serve.
        3.You are public servants!

        As trustees regardless of your position, be it a member of a city council or a member of a county board of superiors, as a public servant you are responsible to your constituents to provide the same Constitutional protections as granted in the federal and state Constitutions.

        Of special note is a Republic Form of government and an environment where one can pursue life. liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Failure to provide such protections is a direct violation of your Oath of Office and a breach of your fiduciary obligations.

        Under civil rights laws your failure to properly discharge your responsibilities in any of these matters exposes you to personal financial liability. Under the law, all of your personal assets may be seized and LIQUIDATED to satisfy damage claims submitted by injured parties. That would be any citizen who feels their Rights have been violated. (And We are Many)

        The Oath of Office has no limitations of any kind. The Oath of Office has no limitations or jurisdictions. The Oath does however specify you must honor your Oath and protect the Constitution from ALL enemies domestic and foreign.

        As public servants, while acting within your official capacity, you have no rights what so ever of your own…it is not your opinion that is important. It is only the concerns of the citizens that matter.. As public employees—servants to the People—you only have the Duty to honor your Oath and perform the work of the People as prescribed by Law.

        You have no discretion as to whether or not you will honor your Oath. You are Directed to do so. There are no options other than to resign if you can not fulfill the requirements as necessary. Otherwise you are guilty of accepting employment under false pretenses and committing fraud. Under certain conditions, even if you retire or resign, you may be subject to prosecution for failing to properly execute your Lawful/Constitutional Job Requirements.
