“WAPO
(Intentional
Misrepresentations)

Devin Nunes told
President Trump that
Shelby Pierson had given
the assessment (that
“Russia wants to see
President Trump
reelected, viewing his
administration as more
favorable to the Kremlin’s
interests”) “exclusively to
Rep. Adam B. Schiff (DCalif.), the chairman of
the House Intelligence
Committee” and “the lead
impeachment manager, or
prosecutor, during
Trump’s Senate trial on
charges of abuse of power
and obstruction of
Congress”

THE TRUTH

Devin Nunes never told the President or anyone else that
Shelby Pierson had given an exclusive briefing to Schiff
Devin Nunes did not meet or speak with the President on
February 13, 2020 – the day of the “classified hearing” –
or on February 14, 2020, and never conveyed to him any
indication that Schiff was given an exclusive assessment
of Russian actions
In fact, WaPo and Harris knew that Devin Nunes was in
Tulsa, Oklahoma, on February 14, 2020 for a breakfast
hosted by the Republican Party of Tulsa County”

“6. The WaPo Hit Piece imputes to Plaintiff criminal conduct in violation of
Title 18 U.S.C. § 1001(a), dishonesty, deceit, sharp and unethical practices, and
independently actionable tortious acts, all of which severely impugns Plaintiff’s integrity and prejudices him in the performance of his duties as a United States Congressman.”

Fiona Hill testimony demolishes Christopher Steele dossier and media reporting, Scathing portrayal of Steele, President was attacked as well

Fiona Hill testimony demolishes Christopher Steele dossier and media reporting, Scathing portrayal of Steele, President was attacked as well

“And also, the point that actually hasn’t come out and,
again, why I’ve been very cross in the media, is that the
President was attacked as well, because the Russians sought
to discredit him.

And I’ve been very unhappy with the media coverage of
all of this, which is why I don’t want to start, you know,
kind of basically doing testimony by virtue of an article
that you’ve read in Politico. Because everybody wants to
sensationalize things, everybody wants to spend time looking
at the things that seem sexy, and they don’t want to actually
look at, you know, talk to what the facts are.”...Fiona Hill testimony

“Hill said she was “shocked” to find out that Steele was the author of the dossier, in part because she had known him to “constantly try to drum up business.””…The Daily Caller

“If I had my choice I would kill every reporter in the world but I am sure we would be getting reports from hell before breakfast.”… William Tecumseh Sherman

“Impeachment Witness Undercut Steele Dossier In Bombshell Testimony

  • Fiona Hill, who was the top Russia expert at the White House, told lawmakers in October that she believed Russians fed disinformation to dossier author Christopher Steele.
  • Hill offered a scathing portrayed of Steele during a deposition she gave as part of the Democratic-led impeachment inquiry of President Donald Trump. 
  • Hill said she was “shocked” to find out that Steele was the author of the dossier, in part because she had known him to “constantly try to drum up business.” 
  • The FBI relied heavily on Steele’s information for its investigation into possible Trump-Russia collusion.

A former White House official who Democrats consider a key witness in their impeachment inquiry told lawmakers in October that she believed Russians likely planted disinformation about President Donald Trump with dossier author Christopher Steele.

Fiona Hill, who served as the White House’s top adviser on Russia affairs until July, told lawmakers she was “shocked” to find out that Steele, a former MI6 officer, was the author of the dossier. That’s in large part because when she had met with Steele in the years leading up to his dossier work, he was “constantly try to drum up business.”

“Because if you also think about it, the Russians would have an ax to grind against him given the job that he had previously. And if he started going back through his old contacts and asking about, that would be a perfect opportunity for people to feed some kind of misinformation,” said Hill, who was a scholar at the Brookings Institution until she joined the Trump administration.

Hill said she was not aware of the dossier until a colleague showed it to her day before BuzzFeed published it on Jan. 10, 2017.

When she read the report, Hill said she had “misgivings and concern that [Steele] could have been played.”

“I almost fell over when I discovered that he was doing this report,” Hill said of Steele, who she said she worked with from 2006 to 2009, when she served as a national intelligence officer.

Hill said she met most recently with Steele in 2016 and saw from those meetings that he “was clearly very interested in building up a client base.”

“And this is why I was concerned about the Steele report because that is a vulnerability,” said Hill.

“Christopher Steele going out and looking for information. He’s obviously out there soliciting information,” she added. “What a great opportunity to, basically, you know, present him with information that he’s looking for that can be couched some truth and some disinformation.”

VIDEO: Leaked ABC News Insider Recording EXPOSES #EpsteinCoverup “We had Clinton, We had Everything”

• “I’ve Had This Story for Three Years… (ABC) Would Not Put It on The Air” says Good Morning America Breaking News Anchor, and 20/20 Co-Anchor Amy Robach. “It Was Unbelievable… We Had – Clinton, We Had Everything…” • Robach: “We Had Her Whole Allegations About Prince Andrew…I Got a Little Concerned About Why I Couldn’t Get On.” • Amy Robach Describes How She Interviewed a Woman Who Had the Courage to Come Forward “Years” Ago About Epstein: “She Had Pictures, She Had Everything. She Was in Hiding for Twelve Years. We Convinced Her to Come Out. We Convinced Her to Talk to Us.” • Robach Details ABC’s Initial Response to Her: “Who’s Jeffrey Epstein? No One Knows Who That is. This is a Stupid Story • Robach: “Now it’s All Coming Out … I Freaking Had All Of It…” (New York, NY) Newly revealed footage leaked by an ABC insider has exposed how network executives rejected allegations against Jeffrey Epstein years ago, even though there was content regarding the merit of those claims in-hand. Amy Robach, ‘Good Morning America’ Co-Host and Breaking News Anchor at ABC, explains how a witness came forward years ago with information pertaining to Epstein, but Disney-owned ABC News refused to air the material for years. Robach vents her anger in a “hot mic” moment with an off-camera producer, explaining that ABC quashed the story in it’s early stages. “I’ve had this interview with Virginia Roberts (Now Virginia Guiffre) [alleged Epstein victim]. We would not put it on the air. Um, first of all, I was told “Who’s Jeffrey Epstein. No one knows who that is. This is a stupid story.” She continues, “The Palace found out that we had her whole allegations about Prince Andrew and threatened us a million different ways.” Robach goes on to express she believes that Epstein was killed in prison saying, “So do I think he was killed? 100% Yes, I do…He made his whole living blackmailing people… Yup, there were a lot of men in those planes. A lot of men who visited that Island, a lot of powerful men who came into that apartment.” Robach repeats a prophetic statement purportedly made by Attorney Brad Edwards “…[T]here will come a day when we will realize Jeffrey Epstein was the most prolific pedophile this country has ever known,” and Disgustedly Robach states “I had it all three years.”

He did not interview Bill Binney. He did not interview Julian Assange. His failure to do any of those obvious things renders his report worthless.”…Craig Murray

“Fox News news analyst Ellen Ratner relayed information from Wikileaks founder Julian Assange to Texas businessman Ed Butowsky regarding Seth Rich’s role in transferring emails to Wikileaks, according to an amended lawsuit that I filed this morning on behalf of Mr. Butowsky.”…Attorney Ty Clevenger

“Who murdered Seth Rich and why?”…Citizen Wells

 

John Shipton, Julian Assange’s father was interviewed on Melbourne Radio Station 3CR, “A Friday Rave” on August 16, 2019.

The interview was available for a week on their website and was reported by some other sites.

Keeping the Julian Assange story alive and reporting the truth is important at Citizen Wells so an email exchange took place with the good folks at 3CR and they agreed to put the interview back up for a week.

The full interview can be heard for a limited time here:

https://www.3cr.org.au/fridayrave

Citizen Wells has put the John Shipton interview portion on Youtube:

Some of the comments from John Shipton:

“Julian is emaciated and not in tip top order or health,”
“He is suffering anxiety. He is still in fighting spirits, but his well being is declining rapidly.”
“Do not forget Julian Assange or you will lose him. I saw him in Belmarsh prison and his health has deteriorated”
“Can you believe that Julian, who is a gentle, intellectual sort of fellow gets locked up in a maximum security prison?”
“in a cell 20 hours a day and has two social visits a month. Lawyers are allowed there other times. These social visits can be arbitrarily cancelled or reduced in time.”
“To travel all the way from Australia to see Julian and to get only an hour, it seems cruel to me”
“I’m told that often that is done with a well known prisoner to assert authority over him and over his visitors.”
“Julian in my feeling depends greatly upon the support of Australians, and their support has been unflagging over the years. The government, of course, has taken no notice, and it seems to me, only takes notice of the United States and the United Kingdom, and will willingly sacrifice Julian’s well being to the demands of the US and the UK.”

Just in from Attorney Ty Clevenger on LawFlog.

“DNC and CrowdStrike refuse to provide records about alleged Russian email hack”

“Last night, attorneys for the Democratic National Committee and CrowdStrike formally objected to subpoenas from Ed Butowsky, refusing to provide any records about whether DNC emails were leaked internally or hacked by Russians. The FBI also missed a deadline yesterday for providing records about Seth Rich.

Surprise, surprise. Three years after the purported Russian attack on DNC servers, and nobody outside the DNC or its contractors has seen those servers. Why not?

Frankly, I expected the DNC and CrowdStrike to balk, and I’ll be filing motions to compel in the next few weeks.

You will recall that Roger Stone forced federal prosecutors to admit in late May that neither the FBI nor Special Counsel Robert Mueller had investigated the DNC servers that allegedly were hacked by Russians. Instead, Mueller and the FBI relied exclusively on a redacted report from CrowdStrike.

To my knowledge, the U.S. Department of Justice had never before handed off a computer crime investigation to a third-party contractor hired by the alleged victim. Instead, the FBI (or some other law enforcement agency) had always investigated those crimes. Obviously, the DNC doesn’t want any independent investigation of its claims that Russian hackers — as opposed to a DNC employee like Seth Rich — were responsible for transferring DNC emails to Wikileaks.

Here’s another subject to ponder. More than a year ago, the DNC filed a kamakaze lawsuitalleging that the Trump campaign and the Russian government had conspired to hack its servers, apparently in hopes that the lawsuit would keep the Russian collusion hoax alive through the 2018 elections. At the time, President Trump welcomed the lawsuit, saying it would finally allow for an independent inspection of the DNC’s servers.

Why hasn’t that happened yet? The Trump campaign and some of the other defendants are represented by major law firms (as you would expect), and those firms have dutifully filed motions to dismiss, but it seems that none of those firms have demanded discovery, e.g., an opportunity to inspect the servers. Why not? And why didn’t some of the Congressional committee chairmen subpoena the servers when the House was under GOP control? Why isn’t Sen. Lindsey Graham doing it now?”

Deborah Sines U.S  attorney who led the Seth Rich investigation source of Michael Isikoff report, Even WP dismissed, Sines anti Trumper?, Social media revelations

“On the DNC leak, Mueller started with the prejudice that it was “the Russians” and he deliberately and systematically excluded from evidence anything that contradicted that view.

Mueller, as a matter of determined policy, omitted key steps which any honest investigator would undertake. He did not commission any forensic examination of the DNC servers. He did not interview Bill Binney. He did not interview Julian Assange. His failure to do any of those obvious things renders his report worthless.”…Craig Murray

“Who murdered Seth Rich and why?”…Citizen Wells

 

We now know why Robert Mueller made his ridiculous unfounded claims about Seth Rich in his report and the probable reason why the Seth Rich murder has not been solved.

Deborah Sines, the U.S  attorney who led the Seth Rich investigation.

A possible anti Trumper who may not have wanted the truth about Seth Rich’s murder and possible involvement in the DNC leaks.

Michael Isikoff, in his July 9, 2019 Yahoo News report used Deborah Sines statements as his basis for a conclusion about the “Seth Rich Conspiracies.”

Even the Washington Post saw through his flawed logic and reported it.

“Isikoff’s source for this link is Deborah Sines, a former assistant U.S. attorney who led the Rich investigation. The Russian rumor, he writes, is “the first known instance of Rich’s murder being publicly linked to a political conspiracy.” In the podcast, “Conspiracyland,” Isikoff makes a similar claim.

But that’s not true. Unfounded links between Clinton and the Rich killing predate the July 13, 2016, “bulletin” and coverage of it by a sketchy site called WhatDoesItMean.com. What’s more, the “hit team” story, which Sines says was repeated several weeks later, wasn’t the primary Rich-related conspiracy that gained traction.”

“Isikoff Spins His Own Russian Conspiracy Theories — Again

The latest breaking news from the Deep State is (wait for it!) … THE RUSSIANS DID IT!

No, I’m not talking about the half-baked idea of the Russians getting Donald Trump elected president by buying a few Facebook ads. That’s yesterday’s news. I’m talking about how the rascally Russians planted the story that Seth Rich was supposedly murdered to retaliate for him leaking DNC documents to WikiLeaks. That’s what is alleged in the latest agitprop hit piece by Michael Isikoff, chief investigative correspondent for Yahoo News.”

“There are two points of Isikoff’s reporting that raise questions.

First of all, he claims that the whatdoesitmean.com website is a tool of Russian intelligence and that it spread the Seth Rich “conspiracy theory” to dispel the U.S. intelligence agencies’ “official theory” that Russia had hacked Clinton’s emails and funneled them to WikiLeaks. How, then, does he explain the June 1 report on whatdoesitmean.com that states definitively: “A stunning report circulating in the Kremlin today released by the Security Council (SC) says that a little over 12 hours ago, President Putin ordered the release of a single Hillary Clinton email that is part of the tens-of-thousands of them currently held in the possession of Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR).””

“According to Isikoff, though, the news is that “Sines discovered … a fake bulletin circulated by the Russian SVR, the Kremlin’s version of the CIA, that was intercepted by the U.S. intelligence agencies. Written to read like a real intelligence report, it made the exact same allegations about Seth Rich on the exact same day as the whatdoesitmean.com story.”

Sines claims there was an “original report” that she had access to, and Isikoff plays it up as if it were real news, but there is no evidence provided that such an SVR report was actually intercepted, and Isikoff’s implication that the timing of the report is somehow mysterious because it just might have been the inspiration for the whatdoesitmean.com story is ludicrous at best.

That “mysterious” connection is yet another example of “fake news” pushed by duplicitous and/or incredibly naive reporters like Isikoff. The story on whatdoesitmean.com was not secretly “inspired” by the Russian intelligence “bulletin,” but most likely was itself the source of the fictitious “original report.””

Citizen Wells, after a cursory look at Deborah Sine’s social media accounts, found disturbing anti Trump comments.

One example:

We are left with some disturbing thoughts:

  • Michael Isikoff ran with a story based on nonsense and the rest of the Fake News media regurgitated it.
  • Former US Attorney Deborah Sines allegedly led the Seth Rich investigation. What proof do we have?
  • Sines provides a ludicrous explanation for her basis for conclusions about Seth Rich.
  • Did Sines actually perform a real investigation and if so where is the proof?
  • Is Sines an anti Trumper or rabid pro Hillary?
  • Does Sines want the truth about the Seth Rich murder and possible involvement in the DNC leaks?

We already have proof that the US Justice Department and FBI have been corrupt.

Just how bad is it?

Free Julian Assange, Journalism is not a crime, Reveal truth about Seth Rich and Russian hacking narrative

Free Julian Assange, Journalism is not a crime, Reveal truth about Seth Rich and Russian hacking narrative

“The Mueller report perpetuates the Russian narrative, states “Mr. Assange and WikiLeaks “implied falsely” that Mr. Rich had been the source of the emails” and did not investigate it.
The fake news NY Times participates in the charade (Lie) by regurgitating the Mueller statement.”…Citizen Wells

“And if all others accepted the lie which the Party imposed
–if all records told the same tale–then the lie passed into
history and became truth. “Who controls the past,” ran the
Party slogan, “controls the future: who controls the present
controls the past.”…George Orwell, “1984″

“We are being lied to on a scale unimaginable by George Orwell.”…Citizen Wells

 

Revealing the truth about Seth Rich and the Russian hacking narrative should be sufficient.

Engaging in real journalism is not a crime.

Especially journalism that exposes Fake News.

“Julian Assange: An Opportunity for the US and the UK to Change Direction on Press Freedom

May 3 was World Press Freedom Day. The annual observance usually focuses on the World Press Freedom Index published each year by Reporters without Borders. Break out the champagne! The United States ranked 48th of 179 countries this year, falling three places from 2018.

A day earlier, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange appeared in court in London (the United Kingdom ranked 33rd on the Index this year) to contest his proposed extradition to the United States. He faces spurious US “hacking” charges framed to avoid taking official notice of the indisputable fact that his actual “crimes” consist entirely of engaging in journalism.

Not a good World Press Freedom Day look for the UK or the US. But the plodding pace of the UK’s judicial system — his next hearing comes at the end of May, a second one is scheduled for mid-June, and the matter may drag on for months — offers an opportunity to turn things around and get them moving in the right direction.”

“A pardon and public statement from Trump would be better, though, both for press freedom and as red meat for his own political base. After all, the American politician most frequently and badly embarrassed by Assange’s work is Trump’s own bete noire, Hillary Clinton. The WikiLeaks “Cablegate” dump exposed her plan to have US diplomats bug the offices of their UN counterparts. Then WikiLeaks doubled down and outed her for the DNC’s rigging of the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination.

Failing both of those perfectly reasonable courses of action on the US government’s part, the UK courts could find a reason to free Assange (currently serving 50 weeks for jumping bail on charges that were non-existent rather than merely spurious) instead of handing him over.

Whatever — just pick one and make it happen, guys. The most important outcome here is a free Julian Assange. The bonus material would be explaining why: He’s a political prisoner and journalism is not a crime.”
