Donna Brazile Former Chair, Democratic National Committee Brazile & Associates LLC 607 14th Street Northwest Suite 500 Washington, DC 20005

Dear Ms. Brazile:
WA HI GTO . DC 2051 27

In October 2017, the Washington Post reported that Hillary for America and the Democratic National Committee had funded, via Fusion GPS, Christopher Steele's creation of a series of memos relying largely on Russian government sources to make allegations against Donald Trump and his associates. 1 A letter from the law firm Perkins Coie acknowledged that, "[t]o assist in its representation of the DNC and Hillary for America, Perkins Coie engaged Fusion GPS in April of 2016" and that "the engagement concluded prior to the November 2016 Presidential election. "2

The Senate Judiciary Committee has a constitutional duty to conduct oversight of the FBI and the broader Department of Justice. Part of that duty involves ensuring that law enforcement efforts are conducted without improper political influence. Accordingly, the Committee has been investigating the FBI' s relationship with Christopher Steele during this time his work was funded by Hillary for America and the DNC. The scope of our review includes the extent to which the FBI may have relied on information relayed by Mr. Steele in seeking judicial authorization for surveillance of individuals associated with Mr. Trump. It also includes whether any application::> that may have been made for permission for such surveillance fully and accurately disclosed:

(1) the source of Fusion GPS's and Mr. Steele's funding;
(2) the degree to which his claims were or were not verified;
(3) the motivations of Mr. Steele, his clients, and his sources; and
( 4) representations about their contacts with the press.

Understanding the extent of the DNC's knowledge of, and interactions with, Mr. Steele and others involved in Fusion GPS's work is essential to this inquiry.

These letters are a gold mine of info.  What the heck are companies with these names all about? 
Bean LLC, Orbis Business Intelligence Limited; Orbis Business International Limited.; Walsingham Training Limited; Walsingham Partners Limited.

I would normally never suggest making something I post, be a stickied post.  But I think this is that rare exception. 
Perhaps we even need a new board called something like "The storm"  to put this in.  I have a feeling, it's going to be a busy sub forum soon!

Graham has been acting in very interesting ways of late.

Is this an early warning, by him and Grassley to help the guilty prepare for what Trump is planning?
Or perhaps is Graham really a double agent. 

I'd like to think it's that latter.  And it makes sense too. 
While Steve Bannon may have been a double agent playing for the wrong team, it's only logical that there are people doing the same in reverse.

It is plausible in my mind that Graham could have been doing an act for a long time.  Perhaps he has been secretly reporting everything John McCain has been doing for a long time, all the while pretending to be his sidekick.

Thinking back on one of his actions, is very intriguing.  Remember the incident where he told the media that a nuclear bomb might hit South Carolina soon?
Perhaps he came forward with that bit, to put a stop to a very real false flag that would have killed a lot of people.
Of course behind the scenes, the powers that be would be furious.  He would have a logical, valid and rational reason to let that media bit out.  A love for his state, and to take that bomb somewhere else in America.
If he did do something like this, he is one of the greatest hero's our nation has ever known.

This is all speculation on my part.  I have no idea which way the leaf is going to blow. 
But it is nice to be filled with hope.

... good points poncho ... and it would be nice
if what you suspect about LG is true. Anyway, there
are re-aligments happening all over the place, and
that is what we want ... we want to call out the
crazy Bolsheviks, make them show their anti-American
cards for all to see ... then wholeheartedly welcome
the dem-deserters into our camp.
