The ferocious pushback on House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes over the explosive FISA memo has morphed into another multi-faceted smear campaign by the Democrats, the media and their celebrity attack dogs using the now familiar playbook.
What was not expected was Nunes’s unexpected announcement of a ‘phase two” of his investigation into a criminal conspiracy to remove President Trump from office that would focus on the State Department.
This phase has already borne fruit as a former State Department official named Jonathan Winer took to the pages of the Washington Post to defend himself from Nunes and in the process, managed to implicate one of those at the top of the food chain, former Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs Victoria Nuland.
Nuland is the wife of highly-influential neocon ideologue Robert Kagan and was perhaps the key player in the U.S. engineered 2014 coup d’etat in Kiev that replaced legitimately elected albeit pro-Russian President Viktor Yanukovych. It also led to the Ukrainian government being packed with globalists and neo-Nazis as well as an outbreak of hostilities with Russia in the eastern part of the country.
An airliner full of people, Malaysian Airlines Flight 17 (MH17) was shot down in summer of 2014 under mysterious circumstances (translation: her goons went rogue) and Nuland not only has the blood of the victims on her hands but also bathes in it. She is as dirty as they come and Nunes is closing in. Note that Rex Tillerson cleaned house at State and one of those kicked to the curb was Nuland. Look to hear her name more in the months to come.
Then when the anti-Trump conspirators and media were still reeling from the revelation of “phase two”, it is being reported that Nunes is only getting warmed up and there is also a “phase three” and this will include former President Obama’s top Intelligence Community stooges including John Brennan and James Clapper. There is simply no way that the conspiracy to get Trump could have been pulled off sans Brennan and Clapper, both of whom have landed television gigs at Deep State mouthpieces CNN and NBC.

As reported by Real Clear Investigations “Exclusive: CIA Ex-Director Brennan’s Perjury Peril”:
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes next plans to investigate the role former CIA Director John Brennan and other Obama intelligence officials played in promoting the salacious and unverified Steele dossier on Donald Trump — including whether Brennan perjured himself in public testimony about it.
In his May 2017 testimony before the intelligence panel, Brennan emphatically denied the dossier factored into the intelligence community’s publicly released conclusion last year that Russia meddled in the 2016 election “to help Trump’s chances of victory.”
Brennan also swore that he did not know who commissioned the anti-Trump research document (excerpt here), even though senior national security and counterintelligence officials at the Justice Department and FBI knew the previous year that the dossier was funded by the Hillary Clinton campaign.
Last week, Nunes (R-Calif.) released a declassified memo exposing surveillance “abuses” by the Obama DOJ and FBI in their investigation of Trump’s ties to Russia. It said the agencies relied heavily on the uncorroborated dossier to take out a warrant to secretly surveil a Trump adviser in the heat of the 2016 presidential election, even though they were aware the underlying “intelligence” supporting the wiretap order was political opposition research funded by Clinton allies — a material fact they concealed from FISA court judges in four separate applications.
Nunes plans to soon release a separate report detailing the Obama State Department’s role in creating and disseminating the dossier — which has emerged as the foundation of the Obama administration’s Russia “collusion” investigation. Among other things, the report will identify Obama-appointed diplomats who worked with partisan operatives close to Hillary Clinton to help ex-British spy Christopher Steele compile the dossier, sources say.
“Those are the first two phases” of Nunes’ multipart inquiry, a senior investigator said. “In phase three, the involvement of the intelligence community will come into sharper focus.”
The aide, who spoke only on condition of anonymity, said Nunes will focus on Brennan as well as President Obama’s first CIA director, Leon Panetta, along with the former president’s intelligence czar, James Clapper, and national security adviser, Susan Rice, and security adviser-turned U.N. ambassador Samantha Power, among other intelligence officials.
“John Brennan did more than anyone to promulgate the dirty dossier,” the investigator said. “He politicized and effectively weaponized what was false intelligence against Trump.”
Attempts to reach Brennan for comment were unsuccessful.
Brennan’s name has been one that has yet to come up on the Fusion GPS-Christopher Steele-Hillary Clinton dirty dossier but that looks to be about ready to change.
Nunes is really onto something here and it could blow the shithouse door off of its hinges if Brennan and Clapper are implicated.
