CONSERVATIVE ACTION PROJECT: Garland And Wray Must Be Impeached

"The recent efforts of the Department of Justice (DOJ) and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to raid the home of a former president and seize the cell phone of a sitting Congressman Scott Perry (R-Penn.) have undermined the rule of law in America.

In overseeing these actions, U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland and FBI Director Christopher Wray have grossly failed in their mission to oversee an impartial and equal application of the law. Accordingly, they must be impeached.

While details and justifications of both events remain withheld by the Biden administration, it is clear that the FBI ignored historical norms in failing to work first with counsel, and instead progressing directly to raids and seizure. This is just the latest example of politicized and incompetent enforcement from the FBI, which took at face value the fictional Steele dossier to investigate a presidential candidate, and whose own employee was convicted in federal court of presenting falsified evidence to secure a warrant to spy on an American citizen.

Under the leadership of Garland and Wray, the DOJ and FBI have breached the public trust. This blatant politicization of the federal justice system is a dangerous escalation without precedent, and incompatible with the United States Constitution. To ensure this state sponsored political harassment stops – and to send a message to all that such actions are intolerable in our self-government – Merrick Garland and Christopher Wray must be impeached and removed from office."

AMERICAN MILITARY NEWS: Trump did request Nat’l Guard troops on Jan. 6th; asks Congress to release his testimony

Retired U.S. Army Lt. Gen. Keith Kellogg said last week that former President Donald Trump did in fact request National Guard troops be deployed in Washington D.C. before the breach of the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021. Kellogg said he was present at the time of Trump’s request, and Congress should release his testimony to the public.

Trump has repeatedly claimed he requested National Guard troops be activated in D.C. to provide security as he called on supporters to gather in D.C. to protest the certification of the 2020 election results for Joe Biden. Trump’s claim has been substantiated by members of his administration, but rejected by some members of Congress.

Kellogg, who was serving as Vice President Mike Pence’s National Security Advisor at the time of the Jan. 6, 2021 Capitol breach, tweeted last week, “To be clear on 6 Jan/NG. Pg 199 of my book, ‘On 3 Jan the President asked the Def Dept to deploy NG troops’ into DC for J6 contingencies. OK for J6 Cmte to publicly release my full sworn testimony. Release Army Guard and DC Mayor J6 testimonies as well. Would be illuminating.”

Kellogg now serves as the co-chairman of the America First Policy Institute’s (AFPI) Center for American Security.

According to an initial timeline published by the U.S. Capitol Police, a Pentagon employee named Carol Corbin reached out to Capitol Police Deputy Chief Sean Gallagher on Jan. 2, 2021 to determine whether Capitol Police were considering a request for National Guard soldiers in anticipation of planned election protest events on January 6. Gallagher replied on Jan. 3 that the Capitol Police were not planning to make such a request.

According to a Department of Defense Inspector General report from November, Trump asked acting Defense Secretary Chris Miller and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley on Jan. 3 about preparations for election protests on Jan. 6.

“The President told Mr. Miller that there would be a large number of protestors on January 6, 2021,” the DoD report states. “And Mr. Miller should ensure sufficient National Guard or Soldiers would be there to make sure it was a safe event. Gen Milley told us that Mr. Miller responded, ‘We’ve got a plan and we’ve got it covered.'”

Miller testified to Congress in May of 2021 that Trump also asked him if D.C.’s mayor had requested any National Guard troops and instructed him to “fill” a request.

A recent Washington Times op-ed criticized the House select committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol breach. The op-ed said the select committee does not have legitimate Republican representation. Reps. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) and Liz Cheney (R-WY) are the only two Republicans currently allowed on the committee.

David Bossie, who wrote the Washington Times op-ed noted Jan. 3 conversation between Trump and Miller and said the Jan. 6 select committee is “crafting a narrative that doesn’t quite add up and omits important facts that would not stand if there were proper Republican representation on the committee.”

Bossie was deputy campaign manager of Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign.

Kellogg responded to Bossie’s op-ed in a tweet Friday, saying, “Great OpEd. Reinforces my earlier comment on 6 Jan Cmte. Has quote from DOD IG Report regarding 3 Jan 2021 meeting with Actg Def Secy Miller/CJCS Milley in the Oval on the 6 Jan NG request by POTUS on troops needed. I was in the room.”


JUST THE NEWS: Mystery solved: DOJ secretly thwarted release of Russia documents declassified by Trump

In the final hours of the Trump presidency, the U.S. Justice Department raised privacy concerns to thwart the release of hundreds of pages of documents that Donald Trump had declassified to expose FBI abuses during the Russia collusion probe, and the agency then defied a subsequent order to release the materials after redactions were made, according to interviews and documents.

The previously untold story of how highly anticipated declassified material never became public is contained in a memo obtained by Just the News from the National Archives that was written by then-White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows just hours before Trump left office on noon of Jan. 20, 2021.

Meadows' memo confirmed prior reporting by Just the News that Trump on Jan. 19, 2021 declassified a binder of hundreds of pages of sensitive FBI documents that show how the bureau used informants and FISA warrants to spy on the Trump campaign and misled both a federal court and Congress about flaws in the evidence they offered to get approval for the investigation.

The declassified documents included transcripts of intercepts made by the FBI of Trump aides, a declassified copy of the final FISA warrant approved by an intelligence court, and the tasking orders and debriefings of the two main confidential human sources, Christopher Steele and Stefan Halper, the bureau used to investigate whether Trump had colluded with Russia to steal the 2016 election.

In the end, multiple investigations found there was no such collusion and that the FBI violated rules and misled the FISA court in an effort to keep the probe going.

The documents that Trump declassified never saw the light of day, even though they were lawfully declassified by Trump and the DOJ was instructed by the president though Meadows to expeditiously release them after redacting private information as necessary.

"I am returning the bulk of the binder of declassified documents to the Department of Justice (including all that appear to have a potential to raise privacy concerns) with the instruction that the Department must expeditiously conduct a Privacy Act review under the standards that the Department of Justice would normally apply, redact material appropriately, and release the remaining material with redactions applied," Meadows wrote in the memo.

Just the News obtained the memo after going to the Trump collection at the National Archives and asking it to look for the binder of documents Trump had declassified. The Archives said it did not possess the documents, the Justice Department did and provided a copy of Meadows' memo.

In an interview Tuesday night on the "Just the News, Not Noise" television show, Meadows said he was dismayed that DOJ ignored a lawful instruction from a sitting president and said it was part of a larger dynamic in which the permanent federal bureaucracy repeatedly tied to undercut Trump to protect itself.

"Well, you know, the swamp is pretty deep," Meadows said. "But when we look at this, this particular president was all about draining the swamp, you know, and when he was running, that was more of a campaign slogan. When he got there, he realized that not only was the swamp very deep, but they they would fight back. And oftentimes he said, 'You know, I want to do this and get this out to the American people, not just the classification in terms of issues that affected him or his campaign personally, but issues that affect the American people.

"What would happen is he would have a directive, and then we would see, as people were leaving the Oval Office, you know, they were nodding compliance in the Oval Office, and the minute they go out, they said, 'Well, we're not going to do that' or 'We're going to find all the reasons not to do it.' So I found that very often while I served as chief of staff, but also found that as a member of Congress, that many times we would go in and the president was all in on a transparency issue, only to find that many, whether they be at a particular agency or the Pentagon, they started pushing back."

Liz Harrington, Trump’s spokeswoman, told Just the News that DOJ’s failure to release the memos fit a pattern of political abuse inside an agency that is supposed to be above politics.

“For four years they lied, leaked, spied on, and smeared President Trump in their attempts to defy the will of the people,” she said. “This is further proof of the depths they will go to hide their corruption. It is far past time for transparency of one of the biggest political scandals in American history.”

The Justice Department did not respond to a request for comment. The FBI declined to comment.

Meadows wrote in his 2021 memo that White House lawyers told him that the DOJ's last-minute concerns were not legitimate because the executive office of the president was exempt from the Privacy Act. In the interview Tuesday night, he said he agreed in the final minutes of the presidency to let DOJ make redactions "out of an abundance of caution" and expected the DOJ would comply with Trump's order.

"We wanted to make sure that that we didn't harm anyone," he explained. "And so we gave them those declassified documents. I want to stress they were declassified documents, and they were to do a final redaction for some of that personal information with the instruction that they were to go ahead and disseminate those. We expected fully that they would do that."

Former Pentagon Chief of Staff Kash Patel, who worked as the chief investigative counsel for the House Intelligence Committee when it unraveled the false Russia narrative under then-Rep. Devin Nunes, said Tuesday the DOJ's defiance of a lawful presidential order only compounded the FBI's and department's failings during the original probe by preventing the American public from having transparency.

"It is illegal to hide documents from publication through the FOIA process, if their sole purpose is to cover up an embarrassment or unlawful activity, and that's what's going on right now," Patel told the John Solomon Reports podcast, criticizing current and former federal officials for not speaking out against the DOJ's defiance.

"It's shocking, but not surprising, since it has to do with President Trump," Patel added. "So their hypocrisy is on display." The DOJ and FBI, he said, simply attempted to run out the clock as the administration's final hours wound down.

Patel said the next steps to force the disclosure of the documents is a FOIA lawsuit and possible subpoenas from Congress if Republicans regain control in the November elections. Just the News is exploring such litigation.

Tom Fitton, the president of the watchdog group Judicial Watch, said the documents in the binder are likely to be responsive to current lawsuits his group has pending at the Justice Department and FBI for Russia probe documents and the 2021 memo from Meadows may make it easier to persuade a court to take action. He said he believes DOJ is "still trying to protect their own in terms of the corruption involving the targeting of Trump" during the Russia probe.

Notably, Fitton's group was involved in litigation that resulted in a court ruling years ago that the White House was exempt from the requirements of the Privacy Act, and he said the DOJ's last-minute effort to raise the issue to stop the release of the declassified documents smacked of bad faith.

DOJ "did the runaround to try to protect themselves from being exposed, because the documents, to be clear, relate to the improper targeting of Trump and his associates that we know is based on politics and animus as opposed to national security or anything substantive," Fitton told the "Just the News, Not Noise" show. "And in this case, these were documents that were made available pursuant to the president's lawful authority. And in the end, the FBI came up with a lie, which is that the Privacy Act was implicated in the release of these documents by the White House, and that wasn't the case."

Former Trump adviser David Bossie, the head of the Citizens United watchdog group, said the episode is a pointed reminder that the permanent bureaucracy in Washington wields so much power it can thwart the actions of a duly elected president.

"This is what President Trump ran against: the Deep State," Bossie said. "These are the deep state actors that the American people don't understand really what it's about, but it's the people who are the permanent class in Washington D.C. They just don't do what they're told. They don't do what they are ordered to do. And so when President Trump says to a bunch of bureaucrats to go do something, they sit on their hands, and especially at the last minute. This was a conspiracy against the president, within our own government."

Meadows said if the documents are finally released, they will provide compelling evidence that congressional Democrats and FBI leaders who assured the public there was a Russia-Trump conspiracy actually knew what they were saying was untrue.

"We found that not only were some of the allegations made by some of the Democrats false, but they were kind of guilty of what they were accusing Donald Trump of," he said.


BREITBART: Exclusive — David Bossie: 25 State Legislatures Passed Laws Banning ‘Private Money Influencing Elections’

Twenty-five state legislatures passed laws that “outlawed private money influencing elections,” David Bossie, president of Citizens United and producer of the film Rigged: The Zuckerberg-Funded Plot to Defeat Donald Trump, said on Wednesday’s edition SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily with host Alex Marlow.

“Not that it’s all fantastic, but there’s good news,” Bossie said of efforts to restore election integrity following many changes to state election laws — ostensibly as health and safety measures to reduce coronavirus transmission — in 2020. “We have good trends, which is in the last 18 months, 25 states – 25 – have passed laws out of their state legislatures that have outlawed private money influencing their elections — meaning — Mark Zuckerberg-style money — whether it’s Mark Zuckerberg’s or George Soros’s or anyone else’s — their left-wing money cannot be brought in to help Democrats win these elections anymore.”

He emphasized, “That is 25 of them. That’s half the country, folks. We’re getting there. Now, five of them — Louisiana, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin — all five Democratic governors have vetoed the law. So 20 of the 25 have enacted the law, five have not. [Four] of the five … [are] very important battleground states.”

Bossie said he and other conservative activists would lobby for an investigation into the House of Representatives’ investigation of the events of January 6, 2021, headed by the Democrat-run Select Committee to Investigate the Attack on the United States Capitol.

He stated, “When the Republicans take over the house — I, for one, and I know others — We are going to demand an investigation of the January 6th committee, meaning the members and the staff. There has already been a document preservation notice sent to the committee saying, ‘Republicans will be in charge of this committee come January, and you better have all your eggs in the basket there because we’re going to be investigating how you operated.”

Citizens United President David Bossie discusses big tech's role in the 2020 election and Citizens United's new documentary Rigged: The Zuckerberg Funded Plot To Defeat Donald Trump


WESTERN JOURNAL: Zuckerberg's Election Interference Was So Bad Even the NYT Warned About It 39 Days Before the Election

When Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg gave almost $400 million to election efforts in 2020, he billed it as a non-partisan donation. Yet one of the groups he gave the most money to was partisan at its core.

“Rigged” is a bombshell new documentary that exposes Zuckerberg’s plot to influence the 2020 presidential election in favor of Joe Biden. Get your copy here today.

Zuckerberg donated more than $328 million to an election group called the Center for Tech and Civic Life. This organization was founded by partisan Democrats.

In the film, Citizens United President David Bossie revealed CTCL was founded by Tiana Epps-Johnson, who is also a fellow at the Obama Foundation.

The foundation is run by former President Barack Obama, a notorious leftist. The fact that Biden also served as Obama’s vice president makes Epps-Johnson’s association with the Obama Foundation a blatant conflict of interest.

Donny Bridges co-founded CTCL alongside Epps-Johnson, Bossie said. He previously worked with the New Organizing Institute, which Bossie described as “a progressive group training digital organizers and campaign operatives for liberal political causes.”

According to the film, The Washington Post dubbed the New Organizing Institute “the Democratic party’s Hogwarts of digital wizardry” in 2014.

Both Epps-Johnson and Bridges are Democrats, and they had vested interests in helping Biden win. Nonetheless, Zuckerberg gave their organization hundreds of millions of dollars in the name of expanding election access.

If you want to see exactly how Zuckerberg helped Biden win in 2020, buy “Rigged” here right now.

“These groups were filled with battle-hardened activists, but now everyone was supposed to believe they had suddenly become non-partisan in 2020,” Bossie said.

Prior to the election, establishment media outlets were already reporting on Zuckerberg’s election funding. The New York Times cast doubt on Zuckerberg’s motives in a Sept. 25, 2020 article, just 39 days before the election.

“[I]t is unusual for elections to be subsidized by nongovernment funding at this level, but also because most of the cash is coming from nonprofit groups that have liberal ties, and the biggest sources of the cash, Mr. Zuckerberg, has drawn fire from across the political spectrum,” the Times reported in an article cited in “Rigged.”

Given the Times’ tendency to side with Democrats, this line was as close to a criticism of the left as the outlet will ever publish.

If even the Times was admitting Zuckerberg’s plan was questionable, the Republican Party should have been able to challenge him and even win. Sadly, that did not happen, and Zuckerberg was successful in influencing the election.

The good news is that thanks to films like “Rigged,” it will be much harder for people like Zuckerberg to get away with this nonsense in the future. Zuckerberg himself apparently knows this, as a spokesperson announced he would not make similar donations in 2022.

In order to stop corruption, American voters need to be educated about it. You can learn how to stop people like Zuckerberg right now when you buy “Rigged” here.


BREITBART: DirecTV Reportedly Refused to Air Advertising for ‘Rigged’ Documentary: ‘Woke Political Censorship,’ Says Citizens United

DirectTV reportedly refused to air advertising for the Citizens United documentary Rigged: The Zuckerberg-Funded Plot to Defeat Donald Trump, Breitbart News has learned.

The refusal is detailed in an April 15 letter to Michael Hartman, who is the General Counsel and Chief External Affairs Officer at DirecTV.

According to Michael Boos, Vice President & General Counsel at Citizens United, Citizens United Foundation learned on April 5 that DirecTV would not run advertising for the documentary, which details just how Mark Zuckerberg spent $400 million for 2020 election efforts to quash former President Trump and bolster then-candidate Joe Biden. According to Boos, the DirecTV failed to give an adequate answer as to why it was rejecting the ad.

“When the account representative for the media buy firm inquired as to why, the only explanation given was that the company’s standards and practices department ‘isn’t client facing,’” he wrote, blasting the lack of justification as a “red flag,” which suggests that the ad’s rejection “was a blatant act of censorship” rather than a legitimate exercise.

Boos emphasized that Citizens United is “extremely troubled” by DirecTV’s refusal to air the advertising, as well as the company’s refusal to “engage us on the justification for this adverse decision.”

“The lack of an explanation leads us to believe the decision is a blatant act of woke political censorship by a company exercising near monopolistic power,” he wrote.

Boos continued, explaining the premise of Rigged, which traces the $400 million Zuckerberg spent on the 2020 election to tip the scales in Biden’s favor via cash flowing to a pair of non-profit organizations, as Breitbart News has detailed at length:

Specifically, the documentary “traces the river of cash flowing from the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative to a pair of 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations, the Center for Tech and Civic Life (CTCL) and the Center for Election Innovation and Research (CEIR).” Interestingly, the Chan Zuckerberg Institute happens to involve a number of well-connected Democrat players, including former President Obama’s former campaign manager, David Plouffe, whom a press release describes as the institute’s “Strategist in Residence.” Joel Benenson, the chief strategist for twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, also conveniently served as an adviser at the institute.

The CTCL, which received roughly $328 million in Zuckerberg money, awarded about 2,500 grants around the country. And while Zuckerberg’s team claims that Trump areas were awarded more money than Biden areas, the documentary explains how that assertion is “enormously, and perhaps purposely, misleading, because of the approximately 160 grants of $400,000 or more – totaling some $270 million – an incredible 92 percent of those funds went to jurisdictions carried by Joe Biden in 2020.”

As Breitbart News detailed consistently throughout the election year, Democrats used the Chinese coronavirus pandemic to usher in new voting rules under the guise of public safety, and that is exactly what “Zuck Bucks” operated under as well, as the grants were purportedly designed to assist with the “safe administration of public elections” throughout the pandemic. In other words, this money rushed to Democrat strongholds, as well as key swing areas, under the guise of addressing pandemic needs. Yet, that is not what they really intended it to do.

“Rigged is a legitimate contribution to the debate over the role that a billionaire’s money played in influencing the outcome of the 2020 presidential election and whether public funding of election administration should be allowed,” Boos continued, noting that the film has already had an enormous impact, as the tech billionaire announced he “will not provide similar funding in the future elections and CTCL has promised not to engage in similar spending in the 2022 mid-term elections.”

Citizens United President David Bossie celebrated this decision earlier this month during an appearance on Breitbart News Saturday, noting that Zuckerberg already threw his hands up “in surrender.” However, he warned that the battle still is not over.

Boos pointed out that Facebook allows the Rigged ads — an “ultimate” irony — “while DirecTV and other media entities seek to censor them.” He ultimately wants Citizens United Foundation and its sister organization, Citizens United, to “use all means at their disposal, whether they be legislative, regulatory, judicial or rallying the public in the court of public opinion to challenge and undo DirecTV’s woke censorship policy.”
