Breaking news report finds Obama Intel Chiefs spied on Trump

Trump-yelling

Important Takeaways:

  • A report released on Tuesday revealed that under the Obama administration, the United States Intelligence Community (US IC) directed its foreign allies to spy on Donald Trump and his associates well before the FBI’s “Crossfire Hurricane” investigation in 2016 into alleged Trump campaign collusion with Russia.
  • The joint report by veteran journalists Michael Shellenberger, Matt Taibbi, and Alex Gutentag, citing sources close to a House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HSPCI) investigation, stated– the US IC requested that its “Five Eyes” allies — the UK, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand — surveil Trump and his associates and share any information gathered. Obama’s CIA Director, John Brennan, identified 26 Trump associates for surveillance and manipulation, an assignment confirmed by a source within the US IC.
  • This kind of intelligence gathering is illegal under U.S. law unless a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant is obtained. The bombshell report will likely increase concerns about U.S. intelligence interference in the 2024 election.

Trump denied immunity in 2020 Election Interference case

Donald-Trump-and-Jack-Smith-640x480

Important Takeaways:

  • A federal appeals panel ruled Tuesday that Donald Trump can face trial on charges that he plotted to overturn the results of the 2020 election, rejecting the former president’s claims that he is immune from prosecution.
  • The decision marks the second time in as many months that judges have spurned Trump’s immunity arguments and held that he can be prosecuted for actions undertaken while in the White House and in the run-up to Jan. 6, 2021, when a mob of his supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol. But it also sets the stage for additional appeals from the Republican ex-president that could reach the U.S. Supreme Court. The trial was originally set for March, but it was postponed last week and the judge didn’t immediately set a new date.
  • “We conclude that the interest in criminal accountability, held by both the public and the Executive Branch, outweighs the potential risks of chilling Presidential action and permitting vexatious litigation,” the judges wrote.
  • The legally untested question before the court was whether former presidents can be prosecuted after they leave office for actions taken in the White House related to their official duties.
  • The Supreme Court has held that presidents are immune from civil liability for official acts, and Trump’s lawyers have for months argued that that protection should be extended to criminal prosecution as well.

Trump takes New Hampshire; last contest for Nikki Haley is her home state of South Carolina but experts say it’s a long shot

Nikki-Haley

Important Takeaways:

  • Donald Trump Moves in for the Kill in New Hampshire Primary as Nikki Haley Gets Desperate to Stay Alive
  • Former President Donald Trump seeks to end it on Tuesday and formally become the Republican Party’s presumptive presidential nominee for the third straight election as New Hampshire primary voters decide between Trump and former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley.
  • With 81 percent reporting now according to the New York Times, Trump is maintaining his double-digit lead over Haley. Trump is at 54.8 percent and Haley is down at 43.6 percent.
  • So the next major contest beyond New Hampshire is the first-in-the-South primary in South Carolina, where Haley faces perhaps even longer odds if she stays in the race after Tuesday, as Trump has the support of both U.S. senators and the sitting governor of South Carolina, among many others.

Shocking: Feds asked financial institutions to flag Bible purchases and terms like MAGA, Trump, and Bass Pro

Important Takeaways:

  • Shocking report from Rep. Jim Jordan, chairman of the Judiciary Committee and the Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government, indicates that federal law enforcement agencies wanted financial institutions to identify potential extremists by flagging otherwise benign purchases and search terms affiliated with former President Donald Trump in the wake of the incident at the Capitol on January 6, 2021.
  • On Wednesday, Jordan sent an alarming letter to Noah Bishoff, the former director of the Treasury Department’s Office of Stakeholder Integration and Engagement in the Strategic Operations Division of the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, better known as FinCEN. According to the letter, Jordan’s committee and select subcommittee have collected documents which suggest that FinCEN was targeting law-abiding Americans “on the basis of protected political and religious expression.”
  • One FinCEN document referenced in the letter allegedly urged financial institutions to query “Zelle payment messages” for terms such as “TRUMP” and “MAGA.” Another FinCEN analysis mentioned in the letter apparently suggested that these same institutions could identify possible “Lone Actor/Homegrown Violent” extremists by examining customers’ transactions, looking for the purchase of “religious texts” — including the Bible, Jordan said — or “bus tickets, rental cars, or plane tickets, for travel areas with no apparent purpose.”
  • The letter also alleges that Key Bank created presentation slides about merchant category codes and keywords that financial institutions could use that might identify “potential active shooters” or other “dangerous International Terrorists / Domestic Terrorists / Homegrown Violent Extremists (‘Lone Wolves.’)” The MCCs Key Bank suggested supposedly included “3484: Small Arms” and “5091: Sporting and Recreational Goods and Supplies,” and the keywords supposedly included the names of notable national gun stores, such as “Cabela’s” and “Bass Pro Shops.”

Judge blocks Trump from defending himself in closing argument after ordering him to pay $370 million in a case in which he says he did nothing wrong

Trump

Important Takeaways:

  • The judge in former President Donald Trump’s New York fraud trial has barred him from speaking in his own defense during closing arguments later this week.
  • The former president, 77, is a defendant in the case brought by New York Attorney General Letitia James.
  • His business empire in New York is on the line, and James has asked for his business to be fined $370 million for inflating property prices to get favorable loan deals.
  • An attorney for Trump informed Judge Arthur Engoron earlier this week that the ex-president wished to speak during the closing arguments and Engoron initially approved the plan, The Associated Press reported.
  • Now Engoron has rescinded the move, even though Trump is still expected to appear.
  • [So what inclined the Judge to block/ban Trump from speaking]
    • The judge then said that Trump would have to stick to what attorneys say in closing arguments, which includes ‘commentary on the relevant, material facts that are in evidence, and application of the relevant law to those facts.’
    • He also wouldn’t be allowed to criticize the judge, his staff, Attorney General James, her lawyers or the court system, Engoron wrote, according to the AP.
    • Trump’s attorney Christopher Kise told Engoron that those limitations were unfair and the ex-president could not agree to them.
    • This prompted Engoron to put a stop to Trump’s plan.
  • On Friday, after James asked Engoron to have him pay $370 million – up from $250 million – Trump hammered the decision while on the campaign trail Friday night in Sioux Center, Iowa.
  • ‘So if you don’t mind, I was a little bit angry when I walked in. Did you notice the anger? Maybe not. But the corrupt AG wants $370 million for a fee for what I did and I did nothing wrong. Nothing,’ Trump said. ‘This is weaponization at a level that nobody’s ever seen.’

Now Maine bars Trump from voters’ ballot

Trump-with-MAGA-hat

Important Takeaways:

  • BANANA REPUBLIC AMERICA: Maine Bars Trump from Ballot
  • Maine’s Democratic Secretary of State, Shenna Bellows, made the unprecedented decision on Thursday to exclude former President Donald Trump from the state’s presidential primary ballot, ostensibly under the Constitution’s insurrection clause. This move, which was prompted by the Jan 6th insurrection hoax, could have significant ramifications for the Electoral College. Maine’s unique system of splitting its four electoral votes means the absence of Trump if he is the Republican candidate could be consequential in an expected closely-contested race.
  • The decision by Bellows follows a comparable action made by the Colorado Supreme Court in December, which similarly disqualified Trump under Section 3 of the 14th Amendment. This ruling was reached following a challenge by a group of far-left Maine residents. Despite pushback from Trump’s lawyers who requested her recusal citing exhibited bias, Bellows stood by the ruling stating the Capitol attack was an insurrection, despite no court ruling supporting such a claim.
  • The final say on Trump’s political future does not lie solely with Bellows, however. Her decision is subject to legal appeal and expected to reach the U.S. Supreme Court for final determination early next year. Meanwhile, the ruling has also incentivized self-described communists nationwide to call for Trump’s removal from their ballots under the same clause. While previously rejected, this constituted Maine law’s first-ever exclusion of a presidential candidate from its ballot. The Trump campaign has stated its intention to appeal the ruling. A decision which, if reached by the Supreme Court, will affect all states including Maine.

Colorado Supreme Court kicks Trump from Election Ballot on insurrection clause

Trump

Important Takeaways:

  • The Colorado Supreme Court ruled Tuesday in a 4-3 opinion that the Constitution’s “Insurrection Clause” prohibits former President Donald Trump from appearing on the ballot for the presidency in 2024.
  • “The court found by clear and convincing evidence that President Trump engaged in insurrection as those terms are used in Section Three” of the Fourteenth Amendment, the ruling reads.
  • The Court disagreed with Trump’s claims that his actions were protected free speech.
  • “We consider and reject President Trump’s argument that his speech on January 6 was protected by the First Amendment,” the ruling reads, seemingly ignoring Trump’s calls that day for protesters to conduct themselves “peacefully and patriotically.”
  • In partially reversing Wallace, the Court all but dared the U.S. Supreme Court to step in by January 4, 2024.
  • “If review is sought in the Supreme Court before the stay expires on January 4, 2024, then the stay shall remain in place, and the Secretary will continue to be required to include President Trump’s name on the 2024 presidential primary ballot, until the receipt of any order or mandate from the Supreme Court,” the ruling says.
