Obamagate

A controversy that refers to several scandals during President Barack Obama tenure, notably the misuse of government agencies, media manipulation, illegal wiretaping, and domestic spying on American citizens to harass political opponents and critics. By the election year of 2016, Obama officials vastly expanded the use of the foreign intelligence gathering apparatus as a weapon against domestic political opponents. In 2013, there were 9,600 FISA search queries involving 195 Americans. But in 2016, there are 30,355 searches of 5,288 Americans.

With the release of DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s first installment report, it became abundantly clear the Obama intelligence community attempted to whitewash crimes Hillary Clinton was accused of and to meddle in the outcome of America’s democratic processes.

Some have drawn parallels between Obamagate and the Watergate scandal of the 1970s; the FISA courts were created as a post-Watergate reform. Had the Watergate burglars been granted outside contractor access to the FISA database, it would make a closer comparison. In Watergate, Nixon turned to outside contractors, the Plumbers unit, after the FBI refused Nixon’s request to spy on political opponents; in Obamagate the FBI colluded with outside contractors, FusionGPS, to spy on Obama and DNC opponents. In Watergate, the CIA declined Nixon’s request to help cover up the crime by deceiving FBI investigators; in Obamagate, the CIA director masterminded the crime in collusion with the FBI and Department of Justice.1

2015 The Progressive Police State

What Nixon contemplated – misuse of the FBI and CIA against domestic opponents – but failed to accomplish yet was nevertheless forced from office, Obama achieved beyond anyone’s wildest expectations. The post-Watergate reform Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act to supervise Executive Branch power was systematically and wantonly circumvented to harass political opponents in an attempt to dictate the outcome of the 2016 presidential election, and blackmail the winner with illegally gathered evidence should the Obama coterie of conspirators fail.

Obamagate timeline 2015 – the progressive police state documents how the Leftist authoritarian utopia under President Barack Obama was firmly in place to cover-up the crimes of Hillary Rodham Clinton, compromise whomever the 2016 GOP nominee would be, and rig the 2016 election for Hillary Clinton. This assault on American democracy is indisputable.

The origins of intelligence lures, FBI provocateurs or Spygate. Sally Yates terminates independent Inspector General oversight of the DOJ-National Security Division. Nellie Ohr hired as an FBI contractor to begin illegal FISA 702 surveillance on Michael Cohen and others. Papadopoulos set up.

Comey gives immunity to Clinton cronies who destroyed evidence under Congressional subpoena.

During a period of November 2015 through April 18, 2016, Justice Department political insiders and outside political contractors, including FusionGPS, accessed the NSA and FBI database using FISA-702(17) “About Queries”. They gathered information on political opposition of candidate Hillary Clinton, including Donald Trump campaign officials and affiliates. NSA Director Mike Rogers suspected illegal abuse and instructed the NSA compliance officer to conduct a full FISA audit. The NSA began querying DOJ and FBI activity.

The unlawfully obtained FISA intelligence information ended up with Fusion GPS. The key personnel in FusionGPS are husband and wife Glenn Simpson and Mary Jacoby. Mary Jacoby’s relationship with the Clintons’ goes back to the Rose Law Firm.

January 2016

CIA operative Eric Ciaramella, working in the White House, requested Ukrainian officials to re-open an investigation into Paul Manafort which the FBI had dismissed in 2014. The FBI under James Comey re-opened the investigation at the same time Ciaramella met with Ukrainian officials in the White House. Ciaramella later became the Adam Schiff’s alleged “whistleblower” in the Trump impeachment inquiry after the failure of Special Counsel Robert Mueller to produce sufficient evidence to remove President Trump from office in 2019.

  • 4 January. John Podesta emails Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg, “Look forward to working with you to elect the first woman President of the United States,” Sandberg replies she was “thrilled” by the progress that Clinton was making.
  • 7 January. NSA Inspector General, George Ellard, released a report on NSA Controls & FISA compliance:

    “We identified another [redacted] queries that were performed outside the targeting authorization periods in [Executive Order] 12333 data, which is prohibited by the E.O. 12333 minimization procedures. We also identified queries performed using [United States Persons] selectors [phone numbers, emails] in [FISA Amendments Act of 2008] §702 upstream data, which is prohibited by the FAA §702 minimization procedures.”

    Material FISA abuses were routinely taking place. Following IG Ellard’s report, Adm. Mike Rogers implemented a tightening of internal rules at the NSA. By law, John Carlin of the DOJ-NSD should have informed the FISA court immediately of the results of the IG’s Report, but the court was not informed until NSA Dir. Adm. Mike Rogers personally told the court on October 23, 2016, two days after the Obama DOJ hoaxed the FISA court into granting FISA Title I authority over Carter Page, which then extended throughout the Trump transition well into the first year of Trump’s presidency.

  • 12 January. Christopher Steele emails Bruce Ohr:

    “I heard from Adam WALDMAN [a Deripaska lawyer/lobbyist] yesterday that OD [ Oleg Deripaska ] is applying for another official US visa ice [sic] APEC [Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation] business at the end of February.”

    Steele said Deripaska was being “encouraged by the Agency guys who told Adam [Waldman] that the USG [United States Government stance on [Deripaska] is softening.” Steele concluded: “A positive development it seems.” Steele also asked Ohr when he might be coming to London, or somewhere in Europe, “as I would be keen to meet up here and talk business.” Ohr replied warmly the same day and said he would likely travel to Europe, but not the U.K., at least twice in February.

Steele Dossier

A discredited political work originally put together as opposition research by the Clinton campaign and Democratic party, with significant backing and early work by Glenn Simpson, which was funneled to the Obama FBI and used to justify illegal surveillance on candidate and President Donald Trump. On Jan 10, 2016, ten days before Trump’s inauguration, Obama DNI James Clapper leaked the phony dossier to CNN and BuzzFeed. The dossier is named after former MI6 officer Christopher Steele, who was paid $168k by Hillary Clinton (info withheld from FISA court) and the Democrats for smears and by the Obama DOJ to perpetrate a fraud upon the FISA court, the media, and American people. Obama approved declassification and widespread dissemination of the made-up dossier. Steele had been terminated as an informant for lying to the FBI about his contacts with the media.

In July 2020, Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) accused the far-left-leaning Brookings Institution think tank led by Strobe Talbot and its leadership in disseminating the discredited anti-Trump dossier, defending its credibility and possibly even being involved in its very creation. Speaking with Fox News’s Maria Bartiromo, Nunes highlighted how a court case in London involving Christopher Steele — the former MI6 agent who created the debunked Russia-Trump dossier — exposed direct links between Steele and the leadership of the Brookings Institution, and the possible creation of the dossier between Steele and the Brookings Institution leadership.

Nunes cited text messages between Steele and Strobe Talbott, then president of Brookings, leading him to question “what on earth was the president of Brookings doing texting back and forth to Steele, why was he accepting the dossier?” .1
