Obama Exposed: There Were No FISA Warrants, There Was No Incidental Surveillance, There Was The Hammer — The Persecution Of General Flynn
By Mary Fanning and Alan Jones | May 15, 2020
For years, Sally Yates and James Clapper were acutely aware that the Obama administration was engaged in illegal domestic surveillance.
In August of 2014, CIA contractor-turned-whistleblower Dennis Montgomery met with Senior Judge of the United States District Court for the District of Columbia Royce C. Lamberth, one-time presiding judge of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court. Montgomery handed over to Judge Lamberth a cache of Special Access Program (SAP) classified documents.
Judge Lamberth then approached FBI Director James Comey and Lamberth’s longtime friend FBI General Counsel James Baker, in an attempt to assist Montgomery’s efforts to become a whistleblower and expose illegal domestic surveillance programs run by President Obama and his intelligence chiefs John Brennan, and James Clapper.
The government was desperate to get back Dennis Montgomery’s evidence, even if it meant granting Montgomery whistleblower immunity.
Brennan and Clapper, Montgomery says, illegally commandeered a U.S. government foreign surveillance tool known as The Hammer, then relocated that system to Fort Washington, Maryland on February 3, 2009, according to The Whistleblower Tapes.
FBI Director Robert Mueller provided the computers for The Hammer, according to Montgomery.
Sally Yates Plays Her Part In The Scheme
In April 2015, one month after Donald Trump announced his presidential candidacy, Sally Yates arrived at DOJ headquarters in Washington D.C. to begin her new job, pending confirmation, as President Obama’s Deputy Attorney General.
Previously, Attorney General Eric Holder appointed Sally Yates to serve as vice chair of the Attorney General’s Advisory Committee. Eric Holder was held in Contempt of Congress for lying about Operation Fast and Furious.
Within one month of her confirmation, Yates barred the DOJ Inspector General (IG) from the DOJ’s National Security Division, which had already taken possession of SAP information that Montgomery had turned over to Judge Lamberth. The DOJ National Security Division and the FBI were in the process of setting up arrangements for Montgomery to turn over additional information contained in the 47 computer hard drives.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Deborah Curtis was at the DOJ National Security Division. Curtis not only took Montgomery’s testimony in a Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility (SCIF) at the FBI Washington D.C. Field Office, she also went on to join Robert Mueller’s Special Counsel hoax Russian Collusion investigation team and became the lead prosecutor of General Michael Flynn. Subsequently, Assistant U.S. Attorney Deborah Curtis stepped down from her position as the lead prosecutor on the Flynn case and left the DOJ on September 27, 2019.
In August of 2015, Montgomery turned over to the FBI 47 hard drives that contained over 600 million pages of illegally-harvested domestic surveillance data. Those documents, when stacked one upon another, measured a stunning 30 miles high. Included in those 47 hard drives was illegally-harvested information on Donald Trump, General Flynn, and their families.
FBI General Counsel James Baker dispatched FBI agents to the Miami Field Office to take possession of Montgomery’s 47 hard drives. Comey and Baker buried Montgomery’s whistleblower evidence, Montgomery says.
However, in October, 2018, Baker testified before a U.S. House of Representatives joint committee:
Can I just — I’m turning to the Bureau to describe this. So his client was an individual named Dennis Montgomery, who I believe, to the best of my recollection, he said that he had been a U.S. Government contractor and, in the course of that work, had come across evidence of unlawful surveillance by the government of Americans — and including government officials — and wanted to give that information to the Bureau, which eventually did take place.
Those 47 hard drives proved that the Obama administration, and, in particular, John Brennan and James Clapper, were conducting illegal domestic surveillance on the American people. The CIA’s charter prohibits the agency from conducting domestic surveillance.
FBI General Counsel James Baker and DOJ Assistant U.S. Attorney Deborah Curtis had arranged for limited immunity for Montgomery in exchange for that evidence and Montgomery’s testimony.
But the DOJ Inspector General would never see Montgomery’s evidence because, several months earlier, Sally Yates had barred the DOJ IG from the DOJ National Security Division, where both she and Deborah Curtis worked.
With the DOJ National Security Division free of the Inspector General’s oversight, there was no one to inspect the DOJ for the commission of crimes — and commit crimes they did.
Clapper And Yates Squirm And Stutter Under Questioning From Senate Judiciary Committee’s Lindsay Graham
On May 8, 2017, Senator Lindsay Graham (R-SC), Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime and Terrorism, questioned former Director of National Intelligence General James Clapper and former Acting Attorney General Sally Yates regarding the surveillance and unmasking of President Trump’s National Security Adviser Lt. General Michael Flynn.
Before firing off his very direct line of questioning, Senator Graham laid out the overall situation to Clapper and Yates:
Clearly, he [incoming National Security adviser Flynn] is talking to the Russians and we know about it. So if there is no FISA warrant — and I’m going to find out about this by the way — the other way that we know about what he was talking about with the Russians is if he was incidentally surveilled. So those are the two options.
But there was no record of FISA warrants. And there was no record of incidental surveillance. The cabal had made their fatal error that would expose the extent of their treachery.
Senator Graham did not appear to be aware that there existed a third option: That option is known as The Hammer.
Senator Graham then shifted his attention to General Clapper. “Do we know who unmasked the conversation between the Russian ambassador and General Flynn? Was there unmasking in this situation?”
“Are you looking at me?” replied General Clapper like any other suspect out of a mafia flick .
“Ah, I don’t know,” Clapper stammered.
“Do you, Ms. Yates?” Senator Graham then asked the petrified-looking Sally Yates.
“I can’t speak to this specific situation,” Yates answered with a stunned, deer-in-the-headlights look.
“The bottom line here is, I want to know how it got to the Washington Post” Senator Graham continued. “Somebody had to have access to the information and they gave it to the Washington Post.”
“Neither one of you did it?” Senator Graham asked point blank.
“That’s right,” Clapper and Yates nervously answered in near-unison.
Someone had dropped that information about General Flynn to the complicit Washington Post. The cabal wanted to set the narrative that General Flynn was a traitor. They tried to frame Donald Trump with the same narrative — that he was a ‘Russian asset.’ In both cases, it was nothing but filthy lies. Strikingly, they were setting up a duly-elected President of the United States with an avalanche of damnable lies.They schemed against President Trump. And they schemed against General Flynn.
Never was there such a magnitude of criminality seen In the United States of America before. One might have expected that this group of people worked for America’s adversaries.
There would be no proof. There were no FISA warrants. There were no incidental surveillance documents to cover for their lies. The lack of proof exposed that Barack Obama had gleaned the information about General Flynn from another source — an illegal source.
The stench of fear filled the chamber. Clapper and Yates knew that they had made a fatal misstep.
So did Peter Strzok. And so did Lisa Page. Strzok and Page’s text messages would later reveal that they were watching and that they were apoplectic.
The “incorrect narrative” was being set. They had not gotten their lies straight. The train had derailed.
