A Mysterious 2016 White House Meeting

white house meeting

Sources familiar with a mysterious 2016 White House meeting are talking.  What they are saying is somewhat less important than whether notes exist – to prove the meeting.  If notes corroborate the White House meeting, who attended and what was discussed, they could be explosive. 

Here is what we know.  In November 2016, Donald Trump won the presidency.  For nearly a year, members of the law enforcement and intelligence communities politically opposed to a Trump victory were “studying” his campaign.

Public accounts suggest John Brennan’s CIA established a “Trump Task Force,” as early as January 2016, to aggressively track, create a record, and potentially interfere with the Trump campaign.  How the CIA used foreign contacts, employed relationships at the National Security Council, and may have skirted US laws remains unclear.  We will know more soon, as the US Attorney for Connecticut is treating origins of the “Russia Collusion” story as a “criminal” matter.  

Similarly, reports are emerging that James Clapper’s Director of National Intelligence (DNI) office was involved in conversations with the media intended to sow doubt, if not wholly nobble the Trump campaign.  Information contained in requests from General Flynn’s attorneys for so-called Brady material – exculpatory evidence the government is compelled to produce in a criminal case – is riveting.  

One report indicates DNI James Clapper urged a media outlet to put a “kill shot” on General Flynn.  Still unknown is how the incoming National Security Advisor’s phone calls with foreign ambassadors were recorded, unmasked and revealed.  New reports suggest the FBI released them, which would be illegal.

Likewise, questions encircle the “unmasking” of up to 300 Americans by someone in the intelligence community, or a security sensitive position in the Obama White House.  If this occurred, why?  On what legal basis?  Who did this, at whose direction, under what authority?  Maybe we will know more soon.  

What else do we know?  We know that the Obama team’s surveillance of the Trump campaign was justified through warrants issued by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) Court, based on information paid for by the Clinton campaign – and known to be tainted.  The FBI did not share this with FISA judges, or appellate judges. 

Finally, we know – from their shrill anti-Trump statements – that people suspected of illegality in Obama’s FBI, CIA, Justice Department, Office of Director National Intelligence and White House are partisans.  They served in political roles, are suspected of abusing power in a coordinated way.

Names at the fore include the FBI’s James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, James Baker, and lesser players.  At CIA, the leading partisan – who likely thought he had a job waiting in the Clinton Administration – was CIA Director John Brennan.   At Justice, names like Lorretta Lynch and Bruce Ohr surface.  At the DNI’s Office, James Clapper is the stand-out.  In the White House, Susan Rice, Ben Rhodes, and at the UN Samantha Powers – all stand out.

Now we come to this mysterious White House meeting.  After the President was elected but before he was inaugurated, a meeting is rumored to have occurred in the Obama White House.  That meeting was in December 2016.  Those familiar with it suggest two partisans were present, Brennan and Clapper. 

If those two were in the White House, one can infer the presence of Obama’s National Security Advisor, if not the Vice President and President.  Meeting topic?  How to frame a case and identify a federal judge – to literally halt inauguration of the President-elect, Donald Trump.  If this meeting did occur, attended by these –any of these – people, and that was the topic, more inquiry is due. 

If notes exist – Brennan’s in CIA files or Clapper’s in DNI files – they should be dug out and carefully examined.  If White House records exist to confirm such a meeting, those should be flagged. 

In short, if we are ever going to get to the bottom of this mess, rocks as big as that need to be turned over.  Maybe there is nothing under the rock.  Maybe there is evidence that corroborates – and affirms the purpose of prior mischief. 

Trying to stop the inauguration of a president is serious business.  One way or the other, Americans deserve to know.  My hope is that rumors like this are being tracked – and vigorously pursued – by those currently investigating at the Department of Justice.  If not now, when?

If we are ever going to stop this corruption, people need to be punished. Someone needs to go to jail.

Coup being planned day 1, Proof & all else drop into place & subopena Obama he was Pres then .

Biden alone broke known laws in Ukraine deal.
Or nothing changes

The only way to stop Deep State misdeeds is to break up the Washington D.C. monopoly. We need to spread Federal Employment into every state an divide them up so they can’t have secret meetings. If they risk doing their misdeeds by telephone or other technology, it can be traced. 94% of Wash. D.C. residents (mostly government employees) vote DEM. We must break up ;that situation

So I clearly remember Biden proudly saying months ago there was no hint of scandal in the Obama administration. Yeah, right! There is SO much anecdotal evidence of a deep-state and it’s weaponization that it boggles the mind. Yet, the MSM refuses to report on it, let alone even acknowledge it. As I speak to people, many conservative Republicans (for the record, I am a classical liberal and conservative Independent who has no choice but to vote Republican), I am amazed at their lack of knowledge about the details of what’s going on. That, in turn, leads to their inability to articulate their beliefs and positions. We all need to “get woke” ourselves and become smart on the issues and the details. If not, the Left will roll right over us. We also need to remember that the Founders looked at government as a necessary evil, and therefore wanted to… Read more »

We now know that the plot to impeach President Trump was initiated before the day of his inauguration. The Democrats were not going to allow this upstart man to upset the forward march of their plan for a Globalist,socialist domination of the American Republic. Since then billionaire George Soros has meddled in our politics in an effort to destabilize our system of government. If his home town Brussels can, by a law, prevent him from meddling in their politics, why can’t we?

General Patton

Americans want a government we can trust. Prosecute all these traitors.

David C.

I’ve followed this massive scandal since the beginning and give you high marks, Mr. Charles, for writing a great summary of this piece of the scandal. Thank you for helping to sound the alarm.

Coco

It scares me to think of what all went on in those 8 yrs. of Hussein Obama! Cabinet full of Islam brotherhood, Clintons, Soros, Gates, Biden, FBI, CIA,…….People, THIS IS WHY WE NEED TO STACK OUR COURTS WITH DESCENT, MORAL, CONSERVATIVE JUDGES, and why they CANNOT STACK JUDGES !!!!! God help and bless this country. Trump-2020.

Diana

There has to be away to stop this garbage and prosecute those leftist socialist politicians that are trying to destroy America, and they don’t even try and hide it anymore that includes state federal officials judges, police, governor’s, mayors, congress, senate, We must prosecute these Traitors, Treasonous politicians ,

Jim

These days, I challenge everything I hear. If this is GOP propaganda, heads should roll. If this, as I suspect, is true – again, heads should roll. If we continue to let one party get away with “treason”, our republic will fall! Make no mistake, I believe the Dems have gotten away with too much already!

‘Nonymus

This whole boondoggle of impeachment and investigation is just a distraction to avoid Trumps draining of the swamp! The Donald should have fired every obama appointee his first day in office, charged the Obama administration with treason and filled the gallows before his first year in office was complicated!

Lawrence (Larry) J. Jones

Rule of law is the lynchpin of the Constitution, keeps us grounded!

J. FARLEY

THE WHOLE OBAMA-BIDEN BUNCH OF SLIME-BALLS SET THIS WHOLE THING UP TO FURTHER DESTROY AMERICA AFTER THE REVOLUTION I ‘AM SURE IS COMING WE NEED TO HOLD ALL OF THEM ACCOUNTABLE.

HE AS A BILLIONAIRE , THINKS HE IS GOD

Bruce stevenson

I pray that justice, or what’s left of it, can prevail for once. Bless President Trump for his perseverance and determination. He should also clear his cabinet of deep staters he give him detrimental advice.

Darlene

I believe the powers that be need to start explaining this to us all.
Every single last one of them need to be held accountable for this mess.
Who the heck did they all think they were?
Hillary Clinton and Obama are the beginning of this whole mess.
Charges needs to be made and it is high time the dominoes start falling.
Every last one of them deserve heavy jail time.
I CANNOT WAIT TO SEE IT!

Joseph canna

Besides Conn.investigation there is also Barr,s IGs and I believe a congressional investigation Where are the results???Where are the charges???WHEN??? I would guess since so many in govt are corrupt ,each side would take the other side down with them.That was a threat by hilliary and we know what she is capable of. Check the cemeteries

Brenda Blunt

Well, it would seem that these people need to be impeached and jailed as well. Enough already. Time to get the country’s business done!

Richard

The corruption just keeps unfolding. If this is true, their indictments are warranted, a jury trial, and hopefully long terms in prison if found guilty, This type of thinking is to take America down. There will be a massive forceful take back of our country unless the justice system is honest, fair, and follows through. Otherwise, we will not survive.,

Joseph canna

It is way over due that the results of the illegal use of FISA,clinton/ dnc paying for Steele dossier ,coordination
and collution of fbi cia irs conservatives are sounding too much like dems lots of smoke but NO criminal charges

Betty Lou Bennett

Yes, yes and yes!!! Whatever the truth may it come forth
