This is my 30-count indictment from Friday night's (2/2) Mark Levin show. I took each statement of fact from the memo – it was a coincidence that it equaled 30. The key with all of the left's nay-saying is that not one of these statements of fact is specifically in dispute. To listen to Friday night's show use this link: www.marklevinshow.com/audio-rewind
1st claim in the memo...Both the DOJ and the FBI petitioned the FISA court to begin to surveil a Trump campaign advisor (Carter Page) on October 21st 2016 - just two and a half weeks before the election.
2nd claim The application had to be certified by the FBI's Director or Deputy Director & The AG, Deputy AG, or Assistant AG to the NSA.
3rd claim...The initial warrant on Carter Page was issued & renewed three times (every 90 days) - which now takes you through the campaign, the election, the President-elect period and early days as President
4th claim...FBI Director James Comey singed three warrants
5th claim...Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe signed one
6th claim...Deputy AG, Sally Yates signed at least one
7th claim...Deputy AG, Dana Boenta signed at least one
8th claim...Deputy AG, Rod Rosenstein signed at least one
9th claim...Christopher Steele was an FBI source
So, what was it that was used as the basis for these FISA warrants?
Cited as quote "essential" to the warrant process...The Steele Dossier? Anyone disputing this was presented to the FISA court?
10th claim Christopher Steele was paid over $160,000 by the DNC and Clinton campaign to create it via Perkins Coie & Fusion GPS - Anyone disputing this?
11th claim the purpose was to obtain "derogatory information" on Trump ties to Russia - Anyone disputing this
12th claim - the funding of the dossier by the DNC & Clinton Campaign was never disclosed to the FISA court - What about that one?
13th claim - The DOJ and FBI officials who signed off on it knew that the DNC & Clinton Campaign paid for it to be created - Any takers on that one?
14th claim - The FISA requests left the sourcing of the dossier out of the warrant request, despite knowing it was Fusion GPS...
15th claim - The FBI authorized an additional payment to Christopher Steele for the dossier - Is that not true?
16th claim - On September 23rd of 2016 Yahoo News ran a story linking Carter Page to Moscow that was used in the FISA requests as corroborating evidence
17th claim - Christopher Steele leaked the story to Yahoo News
18th claim - the FISA request assets that Steele wasn't the source of the Yahoo story
19th claim - In a British court Christopher Steele cited that he was the source of the Yahoo News story
20th claim - Perkins Coie - the DNC & Clinton law firm used for the Dossier funding was aware of the Steele leak
21st claim - Perkins Coie held a meeting with Steele and Fusion GPS after the leak to discuss the matter
22nd claim - Steele was suspended and fired after revealing he was an FBI source to Mother Jones on October 30th
23rd claim - After being fired by the FBI he maintained contact with the Justice Department - specifically Deputy Attorney General Bruce Ohr and senior officials who were direct reports to Deputy AG's Salley Yates and later Rod Rosenstein
24th claim - In September of 2016 Christopher Steele told Deputy AG Bruce Ohr "was desperate that Donald Trump not be elected"
25th claim - Deputy AG Bruce Ohr's wife was employed during this time by Fusion GPS to cultivate the dossier
26th claim - Deputy AG Bruce Ohr provided his wife's research, paid for by the DNC and Clinton campaign to the FBI
27th claim - Deputy AG Bruce Ohr's wife's role was never disclosed to the FISA court
28th claim - FBI Counter-intelligence Assistant Director Bill Priestap cited the dossier investigation as only being in its quote "infancy" at the time of the initial FISA warrant request
29th claim - FBI Director James Comey offered a summation of the dossier to President-Elect in January of 2017 Trump despite its lack of corroboration
30th claim - Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe testified in December of 2017 that the warrants wouldn't have been issued without the Dossier
