Iran-Contra was not 1980.

And I'm speaking primarily of Israel here, and I guess this is as good a place as any to drop this link:
Israel interferes in our politics all the time, and it’s never a scandal
srael interferes in our politics all the time, and it’s never a scandal - See more at: http://mondoweiss.net/2017/02/interferes-politics-scandal/#sthash.xNnXnyHg.dpuf
Yes, Israel interferes in our politics all the time and there's never a scandal BECUZZZZ Bibi is the GOP Senator from Israel. It's all good. LOL
Thanks from Camelot

Did anyone ask Comey if the FBI is investigating the murder of Seth Rich, a DNC employee, whom Julian Assange strongly indicated was one source for the DNC material?

Comey did say that the national election could not be hacked, so why did outgoing DHS Secretary, Jeh Johnson, begin the process of nationalizing the national election under the phony excuse of "critical infrastructure"? That would make the national election more hackable. More Øbama Garbage Before his Exit Think about it.

As CNN pointed out in October 2016, it is not possible to hack the presidential election.

No, the 2016 presidential election can't be hacked - CNNPolitics.com


And who made the referral for the investigation? Has anyone asked Comey that question? Because it is likely fact that the Øbama Justice Department made the referral.

Who made the referral? Well, it was NOT Obama. Why?? Under US law, presidents cannot direct the FBI or other intelligence agencies to eavesdrop on the calls, or read the emails, of an American citizen without a warrant authorized by the FISA court. That request would come from within the FBI, not the White House, and would only be granted if the court had reason to suspect possible wrongdoing. Obama no more could have ordered the FBI to tap Trump’s phones than he could have ordered the FBI to search Trump’s home or office.

Here is the exchange between Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Burbank), the ranking member of the committee, and NSA Director Mike Rogers:
"Director Rogers, in an effort to explain why there was no evidence supporting the president's claim that Obama had wiretapped him, the president and his spokesman, Sean Spicer, have suggested that British intelligence through its NSA or GCHQ wiretapped Mr. Trump on President Obama's behalf," Schiff asked. "Did you ever request that your counterparts in GCHQ should wiretap Mr. Trump on behalf of President Obama?"
"No sir, nor would I," Rogers said, adding that such a request "would be expressly against the construct" of an agreement between the U.S. and its closest allies "that's been in place for decades."
Rogers added that the allegation "frustrates a key ally of ours" and was "not helpful."

Why is this extraordinary?? (and should be made into a movie) Sometimes the utilization of timelines means you have to look at the new information with a keen awareness of specific events. In hindsight, NSA Director Admiral Mike Rogers may have notified Team Trump of Obama’s Intelligence Community (James Clapper and John Brennan) spying or possible spying on their activity.
*June 2016: FISA request. The Obama administration files a request with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) to monitor communications involving Donald Trump and several advisers. The request is denied.
* On Thursday November 17th, 2016, NSA Director Mike Rogers (an Obama appointee) traveled to New York and met with President-Elect Donald Trump.
*On Friday November 18th The Washington Post reported on a recommendation in “October” that Mike Rogers be removed from his NSA position. "In a move apparently unprecedented for a military officer, Rogers, without notifying superiors--which is required by law-- traveled to New York to meet with Trump on Thursday at Trump Tower."
*The request was denied by President Obama.
What are Mike Rogers motives? Did he inform Trump? Why didn't Obama fire Rogers? AND what does OBAMA know about Rogers that might come out?
AND here's another thing. Trump KNEW about the possible surveillance or at least the request for FISA warrant months ago and yet Trump waits until March to throw it out there?? See what I mean about a good movie.

Close enough! It was also never fully debated in those Senate hearings back then also. For example, they didn't want to get to the part about how the CIA facilitated the transport of crack cocaine to America's inner cities.
