The Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe confirmed the theory: that the Russiagate smears were a knowing lie by the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign and the Obama gang to distract the American voters and stop the Justice Department and the FBI from going after Hillary Clinton for crimes associated with her email abuse,” government watchdog Tom Fitton stated.
“Hillary lied, Americans died,” Fitton asserted nearly 10 years ago in the wake of the Benghazi attacks. Today, as Fitton explained, “the knowing lie” refers to new, bombshell revelations from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence which suggest that Hillary Clinton and the Obama Administration lied about the nature of Russian interference in the 2016 elections to cover up for Hillary’s emails.
“Russia[gate] has been about Hillary Clinton,” stated Tom Fitton, the president of the phenomenal public-interest group Judicial Watch.
“They [the FBI] knew in fact, that the guy pushing [the Steele Dossier] was a Russian spy. Sure enough it [the new ODNI’s revelations] show that they had intelligence, that the Russians thought and had information that [to lie] was the plan. The Russians knew that Hillary was making it up,” said Fitton.
“It wasn’t like the fake Russia dossier, it was actionable intelligence. It was so actionable that it was referred to James Comey at the FBI in September of 2016,” Fitton continued.
It was an attempt to distract Americans, and the media, from the ongoing probe into her email, according to Fitton.
“it didn’t take much to get the news media – an organ of Democratic Party propaganda –- to back off from coverage of Clinton’s criminal activities at the peak of the 2016 election,” said former NYPD Detective and attorney Michael Snipes.
The Judicial Watch president believes that Durham “knew about this from the get go too. All we can do is get the information out. Hopefully that results in increased pressure for real justice and accountability in the criminal legal process,” Fitton affirmed.“
Judicial Watch is not going to wait for Durham. “We’re appealing the Hillary Clinton testimony issue, and pushing for documents on what the corrupt FBI was up to, Fitton stated.
Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton issued the following statement in response to President Trump’s announcement of his intention to appoint him to a five-year term as a member of the District of Columbia Commission on Judicial Disabilities and Tenure:
Thank you, President Trump, for moving to appoint me to the District of Columbia Commission on Judicial Disabilities and Tenure. I am honored and humbled by your confidence. This important new responsibility will be in addition to my duties as Judicial Watch President. I look forward to working with my fellow commissioners to ‘maintain public confidence in an independent, impartial, fair, and qualified judiciary, and to enforce the high standards of conduct judges must adhere to both on and off the bench.’ Our nation’s capital should endeavor to have the best court system in the country.
The District of Columbia Commission on Judicial Disabilities and Tenure is an independent agency established by Congress to review complaints of misconduct against judges of the District of Columbia Courts. The commission’s authority includes reappointment evaluations (sent to the president) of associate judges and performance and fitness reviews of senior judges.
The commission has “the authority to remove a judge for willful misconduct in office, for willful and persistent failure to perform judicial duties, and for conduct prejudicial to the administration of justice, or which brings the judicial office into disrepute. The Commission also has the authority to retire a judge involuntarily if the Commission determines that the judge suffers from a mental or physical disability which is or is likely to become permanent and which prevents, or seriously interferes with, the proper performance of duties. In addition, the Commission may, under appropriate circumstances, censure or reprimand a judge publicly.”
