Dear Friend of America’s Survival:

Thanks to all of who who followed my advice and called the office of Rep. Devin Nunes, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee. As you know from today’s events, he has gone public with information about the surveillance of President Trump and/or his associates. He deserves our thanks.

Nunes said the new information about the surveillance “came through the proper channels and the proper clearances,” suggesting whistleblowers are coming forward.

Whistleblowers are needed because he said that while the National Security Agency has been cooperative in attempting to identity the source of the illegal leaks, the FBI so far has not. In fact, at Monday’s hearing, Comey said, “With respect to the president's tweets about alleged wiretapping directed at him by the prior administration, I have no information that supports those tweets and we have looked carefully inside the FBI. The Department of Justice has asked me to share with you that the answer is the same for the Department of Justice and all its components. The department has no information that supports those tweets.”

Now Rep. Nunes and his fellow conservatives have to get to the bottom of who ordered the surveillance, who “unmasked” the names in the transcripts of the wiretapped conversations, and who illegally leaked the names to the media. 

Here’s what we already know: FBI director Comey is covering up for somebody – perhaps Obama.

Here’s a critical exchange from Monday’s hearing:

Gowdy asks Comey if he can assure the American people that the illegal leak of classified information in the Flynn case is going to be investigated.

Comey replied, “I can't but I hope -- I hope people watching know how seriously we take leaks of classified information. But I don't want to confirm it by saying that we’re investigating it. And I'm sorry I have to draw the line, I just think that's the right way to be.”

He can’t confirm an investigation of an illegal leak? Is that because the investigation would lead into the Obama White House?

Klayman concludes that Comey told Obama about Flynn. At that point, somebody would have then leaked the name to David Ignatius of the Washington Post. Perhaps Obama didn’t personally leak. Perhaps he asked one of his staffers to do so.

Here’s another important exchange:

GOWDY: Did you brief President Obama on -- well, I'll just ask you. Did you brief President Obama on any calls involving Michael Flynn?

COMEY: I'm not gonna get into either that particular case that matter, or any conversations I had with the president. So I can't answer that.

Sounds like a cover-up to me.

Here’s part of the Nunes statement from today:

At our open hearing on Monday, I encouraged anyone who has information about relevant topics—including surveillance on President-elect Trump or his transition team—to come forward and speak to the House Intelligence Committee.   I also said that, while there was not a physical wiretap of Trump Tower, I was concerned that other surveillance activities were used against President Trump and his associates.

  • I recently confirmed that, on numerous occasions, the Intelligence Community incidentally collected information about U.S. citizens involved in the Trump transition.
  • Details about U.S. persons associated with the incoming administration—details with little or no apparent foreign intelligence value—were widely disseminated in intelligence community reporting.
  • I have confirmed that additional names of Trump transition team members were unmasked. 
  • To be clear, none of this surveillance was related to Russia or any investigation of Russian activities or of the Trump team.

The House Intelligence Committee will thoroughly investigate this surveillance and its subsequent dissemination to determine:

  • Who was aware of it
  • Why it was not disclosed to Congress
  • Who requested and authorized the additional unmasking
  • Whether anyone directed the intelligence community to focus on Trump associates; and
  • Whether any laws, regulations, or procedures were violated

For America's Survival,

Cliff Kincaid, President
