    SEAN HANNITY: The Senate releases 'Memo 2.0,' and it should scare you

    Hot on the heels of the House memo exposing deep state corruption comes an equally explosive document from the Senate that shows the story behind the phony dossier is even worse than you thought.

    Senators Chuck Grassley and Lindsey Graham have released a heavily redacted, yet very revealing copy of their criminal referral against ex-British spy Christopher Steele, the author of the dubious dossier we now know was parlayed into a FISA warrant by Trump-hating operatives at the Justice Department.

    Grassley and Graham tell us that, while working on a second dossier for Clinton opposition research firm Fusion GPS, Steele was being fed information directly from the Obama State Department and from Clinton allies as well as his usual, sketchy Russian sources. That’s right, teams Clinton and Obama were working with a foreign spy to undermine then-candidate Donald Trump.


    " … Mr. Steele's memorandum states that his company received this report from (redacted), U.S. State Department, and that the report was the second in the series, and that the report was information that came from a foreign sub source who is in touch with a contact of (redacted), a friend of the Clintons who passed it to (redacted).”

    The Grassley-Graham memo goes on to say “it's troubling enough that the Clinton campaign funded Mr. Steele's work, but [worse] that these Clinton associates were contemporaneously feeding Mr. Steele's allegations. It raises huge additional concerns about his credibility."

    So, in addition to Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee paying $12 million for a phony, fake-news Russian propaganda dossier to influence the election, we now learn that her associates and the Obama State Department teamed up with Russian sources to funnel allegations to Steele for a second dossier.

    The senators are also accusing Christopher Steele of lying either to the FBI or to the British courts.

    "There is substantial evidence suggesting that Mr. Steele materially misled the FBI about a key aspect of his dossier efforts, one which bears on his credibility," they wrote.

    This Grassley-Graham memo also details how Steele was using his first phony dossier to brief several mainstream media outlets, you know, the folks who bring you fake news, in the summer and the fall of 2016. British court records show Steele acknowledged he peddled his memo to The New York Times, Washington Post, Yahoo News, The New Yorker, and, of course, CNN.

    However, since he was working for the FBI, he would have been barred from leaking to the media. In fact, the FBI later cut ties with him when it learned he had broken the rule. So who did he lie to, the FBI or the British courts?

    It’s hard to keep all the memos and dossiers straight. If you’re scoring at home, the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence released a memo over the objections of Democrats and the media that showed how the FBI used Steele’s first dossier to get a federal warrant to spy on people close to Trump. The Democrats hope to release their own “memo,” which is not a memo at all but just a sour-grapes rebuttal to the committee’s. The Grassley-Graham memo is a third document that tells us Obama and Clinton operatives fed Steele information to try to damage Trump.

    The dossiers, and there are apparently two of them, were cooked up by Steele and are completely unverified claptrap. Yet, the FBI marched one of them into a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court and presented it as evidence. Months later, then FBI Director James Comey admitted it was completely unverified.

    And here's what the left and your corrupt media won't tell you: the FISA judge was never told that Hillary Clinton was paying for the phony dossier containing Russian intelligence lies about Donald Trump. And they don’t seem to care that it was first used to try to influence an election, then to get a warrant to spy on an opposition candidate.

    The incestuous ties between Fusion, Steele, the Clinton campaign and the Obama Justice Department are alarming. Clinton hired Fusion, which hired Steele. Steele was working with the FBI at the same time. The wife of a top Justice Department official, Bruce Ohr, was hired by Fusion to work with Steele.

    The goal of the whole, unseemly syndicate? To launder Russian lies about Donald Trump through the U.S. government, so they could weaponize our own intelligence and law enforcement network against the man who now sits in the Oval Office.

    You should be scared. And disgusted.

    Scared, not yet. Disgusted, only for the last 30 years !
    A lot of our members are impatient with Trump calling these traitors to justice. I know how damned difficult the system is. Most of you know that I was involved with a federal law suit that took 3 years to complete. That was just lowly me, a nobody in the eyes of the federal gov.
    Now look at what Trump is trying to do, it will not happen fast, there are too many treasonous bastards to round up, thousands of documents (maybe millions) to review, hundreds, if not thousands of people to indict & depose. This has to happen carefully as not to forewarn the enemy. The unthinkable complications, in this historic salvation of a nation & it's people, is unprecedented in modern times or possibly world history. Trump is NOT stupid, he is going slow & methodical to align the criminals & the depth of their involvement. This takes time, lots of time. If Trump fails, the fat lady shall sing !!!

    number of people killed by civilians sick of this .... also zero.

    Evidently taking out a pedophile who's already locked up for probably the rest of his life garners more emotional response than people actively destroying your treasured democratic process. Interesting.

    I've finally gotten around to listening to Sean tonight:

    How the hell do we get shawn, out of sean?, stupid immigrants
    What ever happened to good old names like Laquifa?

    lest I get myself lostdung:

    Sean is always worth the listen
    I remember when he used to piss me off by being too middle-of-the-road
    he struggled to make up his mind but his guests loved him while my windshield often heard the word pussy too many times

    anyway, he's different these days, not without years of practice I suppose

    I like him because he hasn't ever spoken dishonestly about President Trump

    he's still a bit too emotional for my taste but his information and basic opinions have been on-point for some time and for that I give Sean

    Let me see if I got it right. This Steele character hates Trump and gave false info to the poor , simple, naive FBI people who then acted on it. Is that it?

    What we have here in this Grassley-Graham memo is a clear attempt to reduce and focus this whole fiasco to one MAJOR criminal...Steele. A NON-American government actor who we are to believe masterminded this great work of treason against the US gov. Be wary of low flying BS! Remember, the DEMAND and PAYMENT for the dirty work of Mr. Steele comes from AMERICAN actors in AMERICAN government. DO NOT FORGET THIS!!! The half-baked brains of Grassley-Graham have very little of use to add to ANYTHING in the ongoing investigation of the depth of this treason. For them it's just another ruse to appear relevant and get a little face-time in the media.

    The wheels of justice move slowly, by design. Not to protect the innocent, but to protect and enrich the $500 an hour lawyers on both sides of every case who bill their "services" by the hour.

    As soon as I seen his name I was done reading.You'd be hard pressed to find a more extreme far right radical MF then this idiot. He needs to climb back on top of the fence, listen to both sides and make as reasonable choice as possible to benefit all, jmo.

    There are no good guys in the MSM, only controlled opposition. All media centers should be over run and the traitors who work there hung, as all traitors should be and as called for by the rule of law!

    And one of Ron Paul's supporters in New Hampshire nailing Hannity in the head with a snowball. :belly laugh:

    Hannity held Ron Paul personally responsible , and never gave him the phony "fair and balanced" coverage that Fox brags about.

    "...extreme far right radical MF..."
    And what do you find on the extreme far right? Anarchism, which is the idea that there should be no government at all. Hannity is no anarchist. What is found on the far right is libertarian, a person who is against their government having excessive amounts of power over the individual. Hannity, though, I would be hard pressed to even describe as a libertarian, although there are certainly libertarian elements to his thinking. More than anything, I would describe Sean Hannity as a conservative with libertarian leanings, which is moderate right, but hardly far right. Maybe it's the conservatism in Hannity that bothers you. I don't know.

    Fascists are on the political left. The political left is made up of all the big statist control types, mostly Marxists. There is socialism, fascism and communism. Communism being probably the most tyrannical form of statist government and more oppressive than the others. Unfortunately for all of us in the US, we have very strong doses of fascism and socialism already in place in our government. There are many, though, who would like us to go full commie, so the government can have complete control over the people. There are very few left in high places that can actually be called true conservatives, let alone libertarians, people who believe in individual freedom and property rights, sound money and equal justice.

    FWIW :
    SGTREPORT

    The release of the Devin Nunes "FISA memo" should have helped ALL Americans to recognize the deep rooted treachery of the deep state. But the opposite has occurred. The Left, along with the mainstream media it controls, has painted the picture for their willfully ignorant followers that President Trump is a mad dictator who now must be toppled in order to prevent any further "lies." And it is now painfully clear that truth alone will never be enough to help us bridge this gargantuan MORAL gap

    Not really. People on the political left like to say it's a right wing ideology, because they don't want to admit that it belongs to them. But, fascism is an authoritarian/dictatorial statist type of government where the government has complete control over the people and business. In fascist governments, the state has all the power and the people have none.

    In socialist and communist societies, the state has most or all the power and the people have none. Socialism, fascism and communism are all top down political societies. These systems are all statist cousins, so to speak and each one places more power in the hands of government than the next. On the political left, there is increasing government control. On the political right, there is increasing individual power, ending up on the extreme right where there is anarchism, which is no government control at all, just individual liberty. Not truly workable in my opinion, but there are those who would disagree with me.

    Fascism is the redheaded stepchild of the political left, though they won't admit it. Left is state power, tyranny. Right is liberty, classical liberalism, libertarianism, freedom.

    Hannity like Levin & Beck underestimated the Tea Party movement and was very anti Ron Paul in 2012. They served their listeners large doses of the Romney Kool Aid (Beck even called him the next coming of George Washington for gods sake.) and their ratings took huge hits. Hannity wasn't going to make the same mistake with Trump and while Levin & Beck were backing Cruz and others Sean gambled on MAGA and it's taken him from worst to first amongst the talking head puppets.

    Hannity is a tool.

    I don't think Hannity underestimated the tea party. He used to talk to those people all the time. Back then, he was pretty conservative and Republican. I think he's taken the red pill though on the Republicans, since then. I know he was a rock during the whole DT candidacy. I listened a lot.

    Beck? I don't know what happened to him. He might have had some kind of nervous break down, or something. Levin, I don't hear him on the radio anymore, but I read one of his books and it was excellent.
