    When I was 6 years old The President of The United States, Dwight D Eisenhower, took the time to be remarkably honest with me, and with all citizens of America. He warned us of a coup, already in progress, not confined to any political party, already infecting the highest reaches of our government.



    Less than 3 years later, President Kennedy was assassinated for opposing the goals of the coup, and from there on it has been relatively smooth sailing for those who control America with no President (all groomed by the coup) daring to oppose or even mention them.

    Until now.

    50+ years of successfully controlling public opinion through their ownership of all media, and their political puppets throughout all levels of government, made them get sloppy and over-reach during the last few Presidents. Their egos and a slowness to wrest control of the internet not only allowed them to be exposed, but actually highlighted their crimes. At first their strategy of mocking their critics as nutjobs and foreign agents worked, but with Obama completely ignoring the rules of law while enacting policies that were polar opposites of the promises he got elected on, intelligent people started catching on that something was amiss. They started listening to the opposition's views, not because they actually believed them at first, but simply because they knew their leaders and media were lying to them. Once they compared the arguments and researched a bit, the concern became alarmingly real.

    Then Trump came along. The coup wasn't worried, because he was "a clown". Nobody would take him seriously, not even them.

    But intelligent people refused to vote for Clinton, who has never been popular with Americans of either party, and became even less so every time she spoke. When the DNC was exposed for rigging the primary against Sanders, many of his supporters also refused to vote along party lines. Clinton's many crimes and abuses of office suddenly became a concern for many Dems who had previously dismissed them as slander. WikiLeaks exposed the truth about the primary, Benghazi... The book Clinton Cash exposed the disgraceful Clinton Foundation, Seth Rich was murdered 2 days after leaking DNC emails...Comey's obviously crooked grandstanding when he played God and "absolved" Clinton of her crimes left an acrid taste in just about everybody's mouth...and so Trump was elected.

    When it became clear that Trump had no competition from Reps and would win the primary, panic started to set in.

    Immediately after the primaries the coup tried to minimize the damage by enacting legal roadblocks and promoting their cronies into higher positions to impede any Trump plans while they scrambled to put together a Plan B, which meant either impeaching him somehow or ultimately reverting to the "Kennedy Solution". The "Russian Collusion Dossier" plan was born. Now it has also been laid bare, exposing many of the actual current coup members for the first time ever. Over a dozen in the very top echelon of the FBI and DOJ have had their cover blown. It is likely the numbers will run into the high hundreds and into every Federal Agency and many, many State Agencies before we're through with the decade of trials we are heading into. It's recently become clear Obama was heavily involved and completely aware of the coup's actions, and likely directed many of them through Lynch and Holder.

    Since most of you are "afraid" to watch or read anything that might lean a bit towards conservatism, I will try to keep you abreast of developments as they come up, so you aren't completely baffled when your heroes start being indicted and prosecuted.

    The “secret society” referenced in a text message between Trump-bashing FBI lovers Peter Strzok and Lisa Page allegedly involved multiple "high-ranking FBI officials," a top GOP lawmaker said Wednesday.

    Senate Homeland Security Committee Chairman Ron Johnson, R-Wis., revealed this week that his committee met with a whistleblower informant who gave more details on that "society," claiming the group was known to meet "off-site." Johnson elaborated in an interview Wednesday on Fox News' "America's Newsroom," indicating others were involved.

    “I have heard from somebody who has talked to our committee that there is a group of individuals in the FBI who were holding secret, off-site meetings,” Johnson said Wednesday. “I think there are indications there were a number of high-level FBI officials that were holding secret meetings off-site.”

    Johnson: Multiple FBI agents held secret off-site meetings
    Johnson first revealed that the committee had an informant Tuesday on Fox News' “Special Report.” He said Wednesday he is still “connecting the dots” between the source’s information and the text messages he and other lawmakers have reviewed.

    MISSING TEXTS FROM FBI 'LOVERS' COVER 'PRIME' PERIOD, TRUMP SAYS

    “Understand that Strzok and Page were very high-level in the FBI. Peter Strzok’s title was FBI deputy assistant director of the counterintelligence division—these aren’t low level underlings,” Johnson said Wednesday. “These are individuals that had access to the highest level—to the director of the FBI.”

    [​IMG]

    The “secret society” reference was first revealed this week, after congressional committees received hundreds of pages of text message records between Strzok and Page from the Justice Department. Congress is scrutinizing their discussions, after a slew of anti-Trump texts surfaced last year from the two officials who once worked on Robert Mueller's Russia probe -- fueling allegations of bias at the bureau.

    Chairman of the House Oversight Committee Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., and Rep. John Ratcliffe, R-Texas, said Monday that the texts revealed there may have been an internal group “working against” President Trump.

    “There’s a text exchange between these two FBI agents, these two supposed to be objective fact-centric FBI agents, saying that perhaps this is the first meeting of the ‘secret society’,” Gowdy said Monday on “The Story with Martha MacCallum” Monday. The message apparently was sent the day after Trump won the November 2016 election.

    'You can see the impunity with which they’re acting because they are the FBI.'

    - Senate Homeland Security Committee Chairman Ron Johnson
    Curiously, other texts released by Johnson show Strzok and Page appearing to wrestle with whether joining the Mueller probe would be worth it.

    TRUMP, FBI BLAME SAMSUNG FOR LOSS OF STRZOK-PAGE TEXTS, AS 'SECRET SOCIETY' DETAILS EMERGE

    In one text, Strzok wrote: “you and I both know the odds are nothing. If I thought it was likely, I’d be there no question. I hesitate in part because of my gut sense and concern there’s no big there there.”

    The full context of those texts is not entirely clear.

    Meanwhile, Republicans are pressing for answers on why five months of text messages -- between December 2016 and May 2017 -- are missing from the records.

    The cover letter of the 384-pages of messages given to Congress notified investigators that the FBI’s technical system “failed to preserve text messages for Mr. Strzok and Ms. Page from December 14, 2016 through May 17, 2017.”

    FBI'S STRZOK ALLEGEDLY DISMISSED MUELLER PROBE: 'NO BIG THERE THERE'

    The text messages have “cast a shadow” over the entire bureau this week, Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., said.

    “The texts that have been produced are very concerning because they indicate a concerted effort – not just talk between two people,” Goodlatte said Wednesday on “America’s Newsroom.” “But a concerted effort in the department.”

    Goodlatte noted that the FBI was cooperating with his and other congressional committees in turning over documents.

    “Those texts are so important. This isn’t rehearsed testimony,” Johnson said. “They are just unvarnished statements made by two individuals, at the highest levels within the FBI. You can see the impunity with which they’re acting because they are the FBI.”

    Johnson added: “Nobody’s ever going to investigate them. Well, sorry, we already started investigating them.”

    http://www.foxnews.com/politics/201...de-ball-by-fbi-and-doj-over-russia-probe.html

    Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley on Wednesday accused the FBI and the Justice Department of hiding information from the public about the Russia investigation and dossier author Christopher Steele, signaling a further deterioration of the relationship between the GOP and the DOJ.



    “It sure looks like a bureaucratic game of hide the ball, rather than a genuine concern about national security,” Grassley said in a speech on the Senate floor.

    The Iowa Republican said the department was using false classification labels to stop the release of information related to his criminal referral to the Justice Department of Steele, the former British spy who authored the infamous dossier of unverified claims about then-presidential candidate Donald Trump’s ties to Russia.

    Grassley and South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham sent a January memo to FBI Director Christopher Wray and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein requesting the criminal referral of Steele after discovering “discrepancies.”

    They have not disclosed in detail what they learned.

    GOP SENATORS REFER TRUMP DOSSIER AUTHOR FOR FEDERAL INVESTIGATION


    Grassley said Wednesday that he wants to release the “unclassified portions” of his referral, but the DOJ and the FBI are preventing him from doing so, because the “FBI is falsely claiming that three of our unclassified paragraphs each contain the same, single classified fact.”

    “If FBI really believed this fact was classified, then the FBI and the department should take better care to act consistent with that belief,” Grassley said. “Unfortunately, I suspect something else is really going on here.”

    Grassley said he doesn’t believe the fact at issue is classified for several reasons, including how Rosenstein discussed it "with me more than once in unsecure space and on an unsecure phone line.”

    He also said that the FBI is not acting as if this information would harm national security if released, and that other entities who received the memo were never contacted by the FBI to tell them it was classified.

    “Those particular paragraphs are based on nongovernment sources and do not claim to repeat or confirm any information from any government document. Even if those portions of our referral did reference the allegedly classified fact at issue, it is hard to understand why that fact should be classified."

    Grassley said he is “pressing this issue” with Wray and hopes to be able to release the information “as soon as possible.”

    “Hiding from tough questions about these controversial cases is no way to reassure the public,” he said. “If the department is afraid of independent oversight, that just reinforces people’s suspicions and skepticism. The only real way to reassure people is to let the sun shine in and let the chips fall where they may.”

    The Steele dossier was first published by BuzzFeed News in January 2017.

    Republicans have been investigating whether the unverified dossier fueled the original Russia inquiry and helped justify surveillance on Trump associates. They were emboldened after the revelation that the project got funding from the Clinton campaign and Democratic National Committee.

    As FBI Director Mueller Helped Cover Up Fla. 9/11 Probe, Court Docs Show
    JANUARY 23, 2018

    Court documents recently filed by the government further rock the credibility of Russia Special Counsel Robert Mueller because they show that as FBI Director Mueller he worked to cover up the connection between a Florida Saudi family and the 9/11 terrorist attacks. The documents reveal that Mueller was likely involved in publicly releasing deceptive official agency statements about a secret investigation of the Saudis, who lived in Sarasota, with ties to the hijackers. A Florida journalism nonprofit uncovered the existence of the secret FBI investigation that was also kept from Congress.

    Under Mueller’s leadership, the FBI tried to discredit the story, publicly countering that agents found no connection between the Sarasota Saudi family and the 2001 terrorist plot. The reality is that the FBI’s own files contained several reports that said the opposite, according to the Ft. Lauderdale-based news group’s ongoing investigation. Files obtained by reporters in the course of their lengthy probe reveal that federal agents found “many connections” between the family and “individuals associated with the terrorist attacks on 9/11/2001.” The FBI was forced to release the once-secret reports because the news group sued in federal court when the information wasn’t provided under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).

    The disingenuous statements were issued by FBI officials in Miami and Tampa in a desperate effort to disparage a 2011 story exposing the agency’s covert investigation of the Sarasota Saudis as well as reporting that it had been concealed from Congress. Mueller is referenced in a document index that was ordered by a federal judge to be created in late November 2017. The south Florida judge, William J. Zloch, a Ronald Reagan appointee, asked the FBI to explain where it had discovered dozens of pages of documents in the public-records case filed six years ago. The index reference to then-FBI Director Mueller appears in an item involving an agency white paper written a week after the publication of a news story about the abrupt departure of Saudis Abdulaziz and Anoud al-Hijji from their Sarasota area home about two weeks before 9/11. The couple left behind their cars, clothes, furniture, jewelry and other personal items. “It was created to brief the FBI Director concerning the FBI’s investigation of 4224 Escondito Circle,” the al-Hijjis’ address, the index says.

    Though the recently filed court documents reveal Mueller received a briefing about the Sarasota Saudi investigation, the FBI continued to publicly deny it existed and it appears that the lies were approved by Mueller. Not surprisingly, he didn’t respond to questions about this new discovery emailed to his office by the news organization that uncovered it. Though the mainstream media has neglected to report this relevant development, it’s difficult to ignore that it chips away at Mueller’s credibility as special counsel to investigate if Russia influenced the 2016 presidential election. Even before the Saudi coverup documents were exposed by nonprofit journalists, Mueller’s credentials were questionable to head any probe. Back in May Judicial Watch reminded of Mueller’s misguided handiwork and collaboration with radical Islamist organizations as FBI director.

    Back in 2013 Judicial Watch exclusively obtained droves of records documenting how, under Mueller’s leadership, the FBI purged all anti-terrorism training material deemed “offensive” to Muslims after secret meetings between Islamic organizations and the then-FBI chief. Judicial Watch had to sue to get the records and published an in-depth report on the scandal in 2013 and a lengthier, updated follow-up in 2015. As FBI director, Mueller bent over backwards to please radical Islamist groups and caved into their demands. The agency eliminated the valuable anti-terrorism training material and curricula after Mueller met with various Islamist organizations, including those with documented ties too terrorism. Among them were two organizations— Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) and Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR)—named by the U.S. government as unindicted co-conspirators in the 2007 Holy Land Foundation terrorist financing case. CAIR is a terrorist front group with extensive links to foreign and domestic Islamists. It was founded in 1994 by three Middle Eastern extremists (Omar Ahmad, Nihad Awad and Rafeeq Jaber) who ran the American propaganda wing of Hamas, known then as the Islamic Association for Palestine.

    The State Department’s ‘shadow government’
    By Post Editorial Board

    October 17, 2016 | 11:35pm | Updated October 19, 2016 | 1:20pm

    News that a top State Department official discussed a “quid pro quo” in exchange for the FBI changing the classification of a Hillary Clinton email is shocking enough. But word that the coterie of State officials who controlled the release of the emails called itself “The Shadow Government” is mind-blowing.

    The latest FBI dump of documents from the investigation into Clinton’s email follies includes a summary of one agent’s talks with Undersecretary Patrick Kennedy — who, the agent said, “pressured” him to “change the classified email to unclassified.”

    Kennedy “asked his assistance in altering the email’s classification in exchange for a ‘quid pro quo,’ ” the summary says. “In exchange for marking the email unclassified, State would reciprocate by allowing the FBI to place more agents in countries where they were presently forbidden.”

    That’s a promise to help alter US policy in order to make it seem like Clinton hadn’t casually endangered national security. That the FBI didn’t take the deal doesn’t make the potential trade any less odious.

    And State is still covering: Its official comments call the allegations “inaccurate” and claim Kennedy was merely trying to “understand” the FBI’s decision. Who offers to change federal policy in order to “understand” something?

    Plus, in a later interview with the FBI, Kennedy was asked if any of certain Clinton emails was classified — and answered, “We’ll see” while making eye contact with the agent he’d discussed the deal with.

    Kennedy is hardly the only State official to try covering for Clinton. The whole department did its best to minimize the scandal — by repeatedly claiming it just couldn’t release most of Clinton’s emails until after Election Day, until court rulings forced it to cough them up.

    The FBI also released the summary of an interview that revealed a cabal at State that oversaw the email release — a “powerful group of very high-ranking STATE officials that some referred to as ‘The 7th Floor Group’ or as ‘The Shadow Government.’ This group met every Wednesday afternoon to discuss . . . everything CLINTON-related to FOIA/Congressional inquiries.”

    Imagine officials high in the George W. Bush administration calling themelves “the Shadow Government” as they oversaw a supposedly nonpartisan release of documents that could sink the White House hopes of its former boss.

    Heck, State on its own somehow never officially noticed Clinton’s missing emails — regularly reporting “no records that comply” to subpoenas and Freedom of Information requests. Only the hacking of Clintonite Sidney Blumenthal’s emails, two years after she left office, began to expose the truth.

    The FBI has flagged the “quid pro quo” exchange for further investigation. Don’t expect that probe to go far if the “shadow government” becomes the real thing after Nov. 8.

    This was covered in the Oliver Stone documentary "History of the World" ...an interesting eye opener...I too was about your age under Ike...I believe a lot of this deep state is absolutely ingrained in power....not just nationalistic power but global power...The Chinese say that those in the most powerful positions have no name. Puppetry. I learned Harry Truman wasn't the man I thought he was.

    Harry Truman is my favorite president but Harry Truman was put into power by a political boss/ward heeler. I have no doubts he has as many flaws as most presidents. When you pick your heroes I think you pick certain qualities of their character but not the whole person.

    A Howl of a Good Read
    January 17, 2018
    Format: Kindle Edition
    From author Steven Seagal comes this breathtaking tale of intrigue, conspiracy, and the power of the human spirit in the face of staggering odds! While billed as a work of fiction, Seagal’s work tackles the very true relationship between the Deep State and a mysterious den of shadow wolves roaming America’s countryside.

    The battle is happening, people, right here in our own backyards. Shadow-wolf shapeshifters have infiltrated the highest levels of government and can often be seen disguised within law enforcement, ready to take our liberties away. Picture this: you’re at the public library to enjoy your First Amendment rights, hanging out on the 3rd floor with a Cosmopolitan from the magazine section. You’re just enjoying the periodical, maybe getting undressed a little bit, then WHAMMO! A security guard emerges from NOWHERE and you’re lying headfirst on the table with your hands behind your back, staring down another bid on a “lewd conduct” charge. That’s the work of a shadow wolf, buddy. They are always there, blending unnoticed into the background until summoned by the DEEP STATE to take you down.

    My buddy Remo will tell you the same thing. He had a good thing going, enjoying his civil liberties as proprietor of an amateur theatre production behind the KFC on 78th Street. So successful was Remo that he had guys showing up with fistfuls of dollars every night to see the leather-clad midgets re-enact “Smokey & the Bandit II”. One night -- just as a well-oiled “Bandit” was about to make his daring escape from the slippery grasp of Buford T. Justice -- a real-life squadron of sheriff’s deputies arrived on the scene and took them all in for possession of unlicensed dog collars. When Remo called me from jail, I could only say two words: “Shadow Wolves.” Then I said two more: “Deep State”. Then I asked if I could borrow his van for a late-night magazine run (he rudely declined).

    The problem here is so pervasive that it spilled way out into the open. You see the work of deep-state shadow wolves doing the bidding of political elites everywhere.
    For example: 1. Season 5 of American Idol, when Taylor Hicks was installed as the American Idol by Fox, Ford Motor Company, Vice President Dick Cheney, and hordes of shadow wolves clogging the voters’ hotline; 2. “Everybody Loves Raymond”, which ran for almost 10 years. Just add up the letters in that title: 21 letters. You know what that means. That’s before you even get into deciphering the code language in the scripts. A perennial Top-10 show, yet do you know anybody who can tell you they remember watching it? Classic shadow-wolf trance inducement at play there. 3. Katy Perry’s 108 million Twitter followers (mostly shadow wolves, always ready at bay to be released by her secret musical cues.)

    I see it in my own personal life almost every day. Having to show my ID at Walgreens just to pick my Valtrex and a box of wine. The transit station banning me from the #36 bus line because their cameras picked up a highly consensual act between me and Carla. The cashiers at Wendy’s always knowing to put extra cheese on my Baconator. “Restraining Orders.” The lab tech at a government-funded medical facility assigning me unheard-of medications for made-up maladies. (I know what I can and can’t catch from a professionally-trained mule, thank you very much.)

    As Mr. Seagal says in the book: “Never underestimate the Deep State.” They are always there, watching from the shadows. Though the ancient shadow wolves of the Natives were once a gentle, benevolent force, their ranks have been co-opted by the Government for evil gain. This book does a brilliant job of exposing their work! I’ve read and shared this book with many of my friends now, and 100% of the men at the 103rd Avenue plasma donation center agree: this book deserves a FULL 5 STARS!!

    Yes, John has learned much about the “Old Ways” from a spiritual teacher who is such a ridiculous, offensive caricature of a wise Native American shaman that his name might as well be Chief MuchGood SpiritualWisdom. We learn, for example, that John has the “spirit of the snake in his bloodline”, which consequently “gave him power over some people and many snakes.”

    Which people? Which snakes? What about snake-people? Are they a thing?!? I should probably point out that we’re only about five pages in at this point.

    Like Donald Trump and “Stephen Colbert”, John operates exclusively out of gut instinct. As with Trump, his gut is right roughly one hundred percent of the time, both because he’s perfect, but also because his gut seems to contain all of the concentrated Native American Wisdom and Power in existence in highly concentrated form. John's gut is not only the marvel of his department but also of his people and all mankind. The novel really should conclude with John at the White House receiving a diamond and gold bust of his gut given to him by President Trump, the Great Wise One Who Cannot Speak Falsehoods.

    Apropos of absolutely nothing, other than the authors’ far right wing political beliefs and also racism, one chapter concludes with our perfect heroes saving two innocent lives from dirty, drug-dealing, killer Mexicans and ends with “All Lives Matter. Do they not?”

    FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page were concerned about being too tough on Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton during the bureau’s investigation into her email practices because she might hold it against them as president, text messages released on Thursday indicated.

    Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley released new messages between bureau officials Page and Strzok, who were having an affair and exchanged more than 50,000 texts with each other during the election.

    “One more thing: she might be our next president,” Page texted Strzok on Feb. 25, 2016, in the midst of the presidential campaign, in reference to Clinton.

    “The last thing you need [is] going in there loaded for bear,” she continued. “You think she’s going to remember or care that it was more [DOJ] than [FBI]?”

    Strzok replied that he “agreed” and he had relayed their discussion with someone named “Bill.”

    Strzok not only worked on the Clinton case, but was assigned to the special counsel’s probe into Russia and the Trump campaign after a number of anti-Trump texts were discovered on his phone. Page also briefly worked on the special counsel investigation.

    Grassley, an Iowa Republican, said Thursday in a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray that the exchange, among others, concerned him.

    “The text messages that were provided raise serious concerns about the impartiality of senior leadership running both the Clinton and Trump investigations,” Grassley said.

    FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page were concerned about being too tough on Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton during the bureau’s investigation into her email practices because she might hold it against them as president, newly released text messages indicate.

    During the campaign, the FBI investigated Clinton’s use of a private email server while she was secretary of state. Then-FBI Director James Comey decided against recommending prosecution, but faulted Clinton and her associates for being “extremely careless” with classified information.

    “It's clear that [Strzok and Page] did not want her charged,” Rep. Trey Gowdy, a member of the House Intelligence Committee, told “Tucker Carlson Tonight.” He added, “They wanted her to be the president of the United States.”

    Republicans, arguing some top officials at the FBI are politically biased against Trump, have seized on the texts, including one where Strzok and Page spoke of a “secret society” within the Department of Justice and the FBI and Strzok spoke of an “insurance policy” against a Trump win.

    “The fix was in even before they interviewed the target of the investigation,” Gowdy, R-S.C., said.

    New texts released by Grassley on Thursday also indicated that FBI officials believed FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe should be recused from the Clinton investigation because of his family’s ties to Virginia Democratic Gov. Terry McAuliffe, who is close with the Clintons.

    In an October 28, 2016 text exchange, Page told Strzok that then- FBI Chief of Staff James Rybicki thought McCabe should not have participated in the probe.

    “Rybicki just called to check in,” she wrote. “He very clearly 100% believes that Andy should be recused because of the ‘perception.’”

    “God,” Strzok replied.

    New texts released by Grassley on Thursday also indicate FBI officials believed FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe should be recused from the Clinton investigation because of his family’s ties to Virginia Democratic Gov. Terry McAuliffe, who is close with the Clintons.

    Asked by Page why McCabe should be recused now, if not before, Strzok said: “I assume McAuliffe picked up.”

    McCabe eventually recused himself from the Clinton probe one week before the election.

    “If McCabe eventually recused himself one week before the election, why did he not do so sooner?” Grassley asked Wray in the letter.

    Grassley also told Wray he was concerned that Page and Strzok were transmitting government records on personal systems inappropriately. In a June 2017 message, Strzok wrote of typing a document on a “home computer.”

    The senator said Page and Strzok also referenced other conversations “via iMessage, presumably on their personal Apple devices.”

    “It appears that Strzok and Page transmitted federal records pertaining to the Clinton investigation on private, non-government services,” Grassley said. “It is important to determine whether their own similar conduct was a factor in not focusing on and developing evidence of similar violations by Secretary Clinton and her aides.”

    The new messages surfaced the same day the Justice Department’s inspector general said he recovered a number of missing text messages between Strzok and Page.

    Fox News has learned from U.S. government officials that the inspector general recovered the texts by taking possession of "at least four" phones belonging to Strzok and Page.

    Federal Court Orders Hearing in Judicial Watch Case Seeking Testimony of Hillary Clinton
    OCTOBER 11, 2018

    ‘Time to Set a plan for further proceedings in the case’

    (Washington, DC)Judicial Watch announced today that a federal court ordered a hearing for Friday, October 12, regarding a request for testimony under oath from former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Cheryl Mills and several other State Department officials about Clinton email searches in a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit about the Benghazi terrorist attack. The hearing was set by U.S. District Court Judge Royce C. Lamberth.

    Hearing Date: Friday, October 12, 2018

    Time: 10:00 a.m.

    Location: Courtroom 15

    U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia

    333 Constitution Ave. N.W.

    Washington, D.C. 20001

    In his October 4, 2018, order setting the hearing date, Judge Lamberth said:

    Two and a half years ago, the Court granted plaintiff’s request for limited discovery, mindful of parallel proceeding before Judge Sullivan and the ongoing inquiries by the State Department’s Inspector General, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the House Select Committee on Benghazi. Since those proceeding have concluded, it is time to set a plan for further proceedings in this case.

    The development comes in Judicial Watch’s July 2014 FOIA lawsuit filed after the U.S. Department of State failed to respond to a May 13, 2014 FOIA request (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of State (No. 1:14-cv-01242)). Judicial Watch seeks:
    • Copies of any updates and/or talking points given to Ambassador Rice by the White House or any federal agency concerning, regarding, or related to the September 11, 2012 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya.
    • Any and all records or communications concerning, regarding, or relating to talking points or updates on the Benghazi attack given to Ambassador Rice by the White House or any federal agency.
    This is the lawsuit that forced the Clinton email system issue into the public eye in early 2015.

    In 2014, a related Judicial Watch case brought to light the fact that the “Internet video” talking points regarding the Benghazi attack were orchestrated in the Obama White House.

    In March 2016, U.S. District Court Judge Royce Lamberth granted “limited discovery” to Judicial Watch, ruling that “where there is evidence of government wrong-doing and bad faith, as here, limited discovery is appropriate, even though it is exceedingly rare in FOIA cases.” In May 2016, Judicial Watch filed an initial Proposed Order for Discovery seeking additional information. The State Department opposed Judicial Watch’s proposal, and in December 2016 Judge Lamberth requested both parties to file new proposed orders in light of information discovered in various venues since the previous May.

    In its filing Judicial Watch informed the court that despite repeated conferences with the State Department they had been “unable to reach agreement on a discovery proposal” and that “[the State Department] is unwilling to agree to any discovery at all in this action.” Judicial Watch’s discovery proposal focuses on two main areas:
    • Evidence of wrongdoing or bad faith with respect to State Department’s response to Plaintiff’s FOIA request for records related to the talking points provided to U.S. Ambassador Susan Rice following the September 11, 2012 Benghazi attack; and
    • Potential remedies that may ensure a sufficient search for responsive records is undertaken.
    Judicial Watch seeks both documents and depositions. The documents requested include:
    1. All documents that concern or relate to the processing of any and all searches of the Office of the Secretary for emails relating to the September 11, 2012 Benghazi attack and its aftermath …
    2. 2. All communications that concern or relate to the processing of all searches referenced in Document Request No. 1 above, including directions or guidance about how and where to conduct the searches …
    3. All records that concern or relate to the State Department’s policies, practices, procedures and/or actions (or lack thereof) to secure, inventory, and/or account for all records…
    4. Plaintiff requests copies of the attached records [previously obtained by Judicial Watch] with the Exemption 5 redactions removed …
    In addition to documents, Judicial Watch seeks depositions, including a deposition of Hillary Clinton that would include Mrs. Clinton’s testimony on:

    [the] identification of individuals (whether State Department officials, other government officials, or third-parties, including but not limited to Sidney Blumenthal) with whom Secretary Clinton may have communicated by email.

    “It is frankly unbelievable that the State Department is still protecting Hillary Clinton and her aides from being asked basic questions about her illicit email system,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “The courts were misled and obstructed by Hillary Clinton’s email scheme and we hope to get some more answers about this scandal.”
