I am a mortal enemy to arbitrary government and unlimited power. I am naturally very jealous for the rights and liberties of my country, and the least encroachment of those invaluable privileges is apt to make my blood boil. — Ben Franklin
It does not take a majority to prevail…but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men. – Samuel Adams
Former federal prosecutor, Joe diGenova, law partner and husband of Victoria Toensing, says the truth is starting to seep out about the Obama Administration’s “brazen plot to exonerate Hillary Clinton” and “frame an incoming president with a false Russian conspiracy that never existed.” Victoria Ms.Toensing is the attorney for the FBI informant and whistle-blower related to the Uranium One deal scandal.
Strzok and Page Text Messages
The loathsome FBI traitors Peter Strzok and Lisa Page have provided some explosive evidence that Obama lied on national TV and was in fact protecting Clinton and targeting Trump. In an April 2016 interview, then President Barack Hussein Obama lied to told “Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace when he said he could “guarantee” that he had no discussions about or influence over any FBI or Justice Department investigations, including the investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server. “Nobody gets treated differently when it comes to the Justice Department because nobody is above the law.”
Sure––that’s why Congress is investigating into possible malfeasance and political corruption at the Obama-era Department of Justice, FBI, and intelligence agencies. The stench reaches to high heaven.
The latest release of text messages between FBI agent Peter Strzok and his lover, FBI lawyer Lisa Page have raised questions about Obama’s involvement in the Clinton email investigation, Senate investigators told Fox News. Big questions! The newly revealed text messages between the lovers include an exchange about preparing talking points for then FBI Director Comey to give to President Obama in order to honor the ex-president’s explicit request that he “know everything we’re doing.”
This was affirmed in writing in one of the text messages released by the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee that Page wrote to Strzok on Sept. 2, 2016: “POTUS wants to know everything we’re doing.” There are even more text messages between the two of them, and on November 14, 2016, Page texted, “We have our task ahead of us.”
Just what task was that? Sounds like an assignment, doesn’t it? Which leads any sentient person to ask, how involved was President Obama?
We’d better get the answers despite the entire disdain of Congress for “sullying” the first half-white “black President,” because of his support for Hillary and the destruction of her opposition is about as serious––and illegal and unconstitutional––as it gets!
Obviously, President Obama was intensely involved in wanting to know everything about either the Clinton email investigation or and the Russian-collusion investigation, despite what he told Chris Wallace.
Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch, has laid out some very serious and potentially damaging questions he has about Obama’s involvement in the criminality.
Robert Bauer, Obama Lawyer
Perkins Coie Law Firm is the counsel of record for the Democratic National Committee, and other political clients including nearly all Democratic members of the United States Congress, as well as several presidential campaigns, including those of John Kerry and Barack Obama.
Robert Bauer became Barack Obama‘s private attorney after Obama was elected to the U.S. Senate in 2004 in the corrupt State of Illinois. In 2009, President Obama appointed Robert Bauer, the chair of the firm’s Political Law practice, to become his White House Counsel, and in 2011 Bauer returned to private practice with Perkins Coie.
In 2015, Hillary Clinton named Marc Elias of Perkins Coie Law Firm as general counsel to her campaign.
But back to Robert Bauer. He worked on energy issues for the Jimmy Carter administration in the late 1970s, and has served as counsel to the Democratic Senatorial and Congressional Campaign Committees for many years. He was counsel to Senate Minority Leader Tom Daschle, helping him defend President Bill Clinton against impeachment charges. He was also counsel to John Kerry’s presidential campaign and went after Republican Tom DeLay, charging him with extortion and money laundering.
The Birth Certificate Issue
In January 2009, when Obama For America (OFA) merged with the Democratic National Committee and became known as Organizing for America, Bauer retained his position as general counsel. Then, during the 2008 presidential campaign, Obama––who had never made his original birth certificate available for public scrutiny––hired Perkins Coie to defend him in court cases challenging his status as a “natural born” U.S. citizen, so he could hold the high office. According to Federal Election Commission records, OFA paid Perkins Coie $1,352,378.95 for its legal services in those cases.
Silencing Obama’s Past
More than interesting is the fact that while Obama was campaigning against Hillary Clinton and then Republican opponent Senator John McCain (R-AZ), his lawyer quietly wrote letters to station managers and to Asst. U.S. Attorney General, the late John Keeney, contending that Federal Election Commission (FEC) rules forbade the airing of any anti-Obama television ads that would make any mention of Obama’s well-documented association with former Weather Underground terrorist, Bill Ayers.
Bauer filed FEC complaints against groups that were seeking to run such ads, and he intervened on Obama’s behalf to prevent the pro-Hillary American Leadership Project from running TV spots exposing the strong support Obama had received from the notoriously corrupt Service Employees International Union (SEIU).
In early 2009 President Obama hired Bauer as legal counsel to represent him in a criminal probe investigating allegations that former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich may have sought––with Obama’s or Rahm Emanuel‘s knowledge––to sell to the highest bidder the U.S. Senate seat Obama had vacated when he assumed the presidency. Blagojevich became the fourth Illinois governor to serve time in federal prison, after Otto Kerner Jr., Dan Walker, and George Ryan.
Bauer also worked on issues related to Obama’s ties to Tony Rezko, a corrupt, Chicago-based real-estate developer, who made one of the first major financial contributions to Obama’s political campaigns in the 1990s. In 2005, Rezko was facing at least 12 lawsuits and was under federal investigation on charges that he had solicited kickbacks from companies seeking state pension business under his friend, Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich.

Robert Bauer was also intimately involved in Obama’s controversial decision to break the pledge he had made to accept public funding for his presidential campaign. Oh, what tangled webs we weave…
Anita Dunn, Obama Communications Director
Anita Dunn is the wife of Robert Bauer, and a senior partner at SKDKnickerbocker, a strategic communications firm in Washington, D.C., and a contributor for to NBC News, MSNBC, and CNBC. She was Obama’s interim Acting Communications Director. Clearly, Robert Bauer and Anita Dunn are among the top Democrat power- player couples in DC., and have been for a very long time.
In June of 2009, Ms. Dunn delivered a speech to high-school students in Maryland, where she cited Mao Zedong as one of her “favorite political philosophers.” Mao Zedong, founder of the People’s Republic of China, qualifies as among the greatest mass murderers in world history. Zedong murdered 45 million of his own people, and Anita Dunn actually lauded him. God help us, this is the Democrat party today!
Dunn helped offer damage control advice for Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein. Link And Squier, Knapp, and Dunn, her Public Relations firm, has clients that include such far left clients as SEIU-National, SEIU-Local 1199, Ceres––Environmentalists “for sustainable prosperity,” and American Rights at Work––Big Labor outfit chaired by David Bonior.
Her firm created the ads for Rod Blagojevich in Illinois in 2002 and 2006. In other words, they outright lied to help elect one of the most corrupt governors in Illinois history. Too many Illinois governors end up in prison. And Dunn was also one of the early point people on the Destroy-Sarah-Palin team.
Perkins Coie and Fusion GPS
Since April of 2016, former President Obama’s campaign organization paid almost a million dollars to the law firm that hired Fusion GPS to compile a dossier of unsupported allegations against candidate and now–President Donald Trump.
The Federalist reports that Obama’s purposefully-established “resistance” group, Organizing for America (OFA), paid a significant sum of money to Perkins Coie, who then directed by the DNC and Hillary Clinton’s campaign to conduct opposition research on Trump.
Marc Elias, who represented the Clinton campaign and the DNC at Perkins Coie, hired Fusion GPS in April 2016 to dig up damaging information on the billionaire candidate. And we know Fusion GPS hired former British spy Christopher Steele––who then received and disseminated in his phony dossier unverified information about Trump from officials in Russia. Steele’s dossier does include information it says was obtained from “a senior Russian Foreign Ministry figure and a former top level Russian intelligence officer still active inside the Kremlin.”
In other words, the Clinton camp and the DNC were essentially paying for information allegedly obtained from inside the Russian government, even as there is no proof they deliberately sought Russia’s help.
At the same time as the Perkins Coie law firm was supposedly hiring Fusion GPS, the Obama campaign was pumping money into the firm. Which begs the question: Just how much did Obama and his staff know about the origins of the contrived information contained in the dossier? Link
Andrew McCarthy notes that it all amounts to a clever arrangement, i.e., the use of the law firm adds a layer of deniability, and when controversy arises, Fusion GPS is able to appeal to attorney-client privilege to shield itself from scrutiny. Here is what attorney, author and journalist David French has to say about this “The Russia Dossier Story: A Perfect Storm of Clinton Deception, Media Irresponsibility, and Democratic Moral Blindness.” Link
Fusion GPS in West Wing
At the same time that Hillary’s campaign, OFA, and the DNC were all paying Perkins Coie, the wife of one of Fusion GPS’s key employees, Shailagh Murray, was working directly for Obama in the West Wing. She was a top communications adviser to Obama while the Obama administration was reportedly using information from the dossier to justify secret surveillance of Trump campaign staff.
Murray is married to Neil King, a former Wall Street Journal reporter who was hired by Fusion GPS in December of 2016. While at the WSJ, King worked alongside Fusion GPS’s core team, even sharing bylines with Glenn Simpson, the Fusion GPS executive who personally hired Steele to probe Trump’s alleged Russia connections.
The Campaign Legal Center, a non-partisan legal group, filed a complaint with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) last October 2017, claiming that the Clinton campaign and the DNC broke campaign finance laws because they did not accurately report payments they made related to the Trump dossier––payments that totaled well over $9 million between the two organizations!
FEC records show that Marc Elias, Seattle based Perkins Coie attorney, facilitated the payments to Fusion GPS on behalf of the Clinton campaign and the DNC. Elias previously served as counsel for Obama’s OFA.
While OFA paid a substantial sum of money to Perkins Coie and the Clinton’s campaign, and the DNC paid much more! Hillary For America paid almost $5.1 million while the DNC paid nearly $5.4 million to the firm. The Steele dossier was commissioned during this time.
According to the Washington Post, Fusion GPS was first retained by Perkins Coie on behalf of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign in April of 2016.
For the record, Elias also worked closely with former White House Counsel Robert Bauer, who was, as mentioned, also a partner at Perkins-Coie, known for its Democratic Party ties.
The timing and nature of the payments to Perkins Coie by Obama’s official campaign arm raise still-unanswered questions about whether OFA was funding Fusion GPS.
Exactly how much did Obama and his team know about the contents and source of the dossier before it was made public?
Did the president or his government lieutenants knowingly use a libelous partisan political document to justify official government spying via the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court approval targeting political opponents named in the dossier?
Remember that 10 of the 11 FISA court judges were appointed by Obama!
Is it time to identify these anti-Trump collaborators as traitors and to picture all of them in orange prison garb?
