FLASH: Trump Withdraws Jessie Liu Nomination

Jessie Liu
FLASH: President Trump has withdrawn the nomination of Jessie Liu here's why:

The Senate Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs Committee will soon have a hearing on the nomination of U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia Jessie Liu to be elevated to Under Secretary for Terrorism and Financial Crimes at the U.S. Treasury.

Ms. Liu was a terrible choice for U.S. Attorney for DC – as a product of the dysfunctional reign of Johnny DeStefano and Reince Priebus she has proven herself to be totally unfit for her present job, so why the Trump administration would want to elevate her to one of the top subcabinet positions at Treasury is beyond us.

But screw-up and move-up is an old tradition in Washington, especially if one has the right connections or fits into some protected class.

So, before Ms. Liu moves up to another position where she can let spies and coup-plotters walk, she should be asked some tough questions by members of the Senate Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs Committee, and who better to ask her those tough questions than principled limited government constitutional conservative Senator Tom Cotton, a tiger when it comes to questioning witnesses in Committee hearings.

To get some background on just one case where Jessie Liu and her attorneys took a dive we invite you to review this article posted by our friends at The Conservative Treehouse.

The short version of the backstory is that on June 7th, 2018 an indictment of Senate Select Committee on Intelligence Security Director James Wolfe was unsealed accusing Wolfe of leaking classified information, including the Carter Page FISA warrant application, to a reporter for the New York Times with whom he was alleged to be carrying on an affair.

When Wolfe was scheduled to go to trial, he threatened to call members of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence as witnesses, implying some knew what he was doing. Wolfe was allowed to plead to one minor charge and got what amounted to a parking ticket for the same stuff that could send Roger Stone and Gen. Mike Flynn to prison for years.

Here are the questions suggested by our friends at the Conservative Tree House that we would like to see Senator Cotton, or another member of the Committee with equal backbone, ask Ms. Liu:

♦ Did the DOJ or FBI have evidence that SSCI Security Director James Wolfe leaked the Carter Page FISA application to the media? We know the honest answer is yes.

The next follow up:

♦ Why was James Wolfe not prosecuted for that leak of classified information? An honest answer would make things really interesting, really fast.

Consider the ramifications:

An honest answer would prove the media lied for 18 months about the content of the FISA application. They’ve had it since March 2017. That’s how the New York Times knew to FOIA it. That’s why the New York Times filed the FOIA, to use it more openly.

An honest answer would prove the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (SSCI) was a participating entity in the coup effort.

An honest answer would explain why the SSCI would only approve of nominees who would not expose their activity. Remember, the CIA, FBI, DOJ, ODNI, DNI, etc. all require confirmation from the SSCI (including Chair and Vice-Chair); and the answer would highlight SSCI members were engaged in a seditious conspiracy against the office of the presidency.

An honest answer would explain how Vice-Chairman Mark Warner’s text messages surfaced. Mark Warner entered the dragnet of the FBI investigation of James Wolfe…. and he was questioned by the FBI about his text messages. THAT is why Warner got out in front of them.

An honest answer would also explain why former DOJ-NSD lawyer Michael Atkinson was recommended to become Intelligence Community Inspector General…. And why the SSCI approved. An honest answer would explain why ICIG Atkinson participated in the second soft-coup effort via the “whistle-blower.”

An honest answer would explain the unique nature of all the interests in/around Adam Schiff, Mark Warner, the House intel committee, the SSCI, the DOJ-NSD… Almost everything reconciles within the sunlight of an honest answer.

An honest answer would highlight several members of the 2016 U.S intel community oversight known as the “gang of eight” were participating in a covert effort against candidate Trump; and how some of the current Go8 members have legal exposure.

The ramifications are far reaching:

Who was Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein and DC Attorney Jessie Liu protecting? (We think it was, at a minimum, Senator Mark Warner.)

What institutional interests did Rod Rosenstein and Jessie Liu consider too stunning, too damaging, too overwhelming, to confront in their decision to allow such a weak plea contrast against such severe criminal conduct?

It is even possible for the United States Dept. of Justice to conduct a trial where members of the Gang of Eight were implicated in the activity?

How could the institutions of the United States government survive the publicity of members within the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence conspiring with foreign and domestic actors to eliminate the President of the United States?

How could the highest and most widely recognized U.S. media institutions (NYT, WaPo, CNN and more) survive exposure within that same trial.  The media caught participating in a government effort (receiving leaked classified information) intended to eliminate the presidency of Donald John Trump?

Liu let Wolfe off with a slap on the wrist and let most of the players in the Awan spy ring slip back to Pakistan with hundreds of thousands of dollars they stole from the US House of Representatives, while never bringing them to account for the terabytes of sensitive information they downloaded from the House computers they compromised.

Liu is scheduled for her confirmation hearing on Thursday at 10:00am.  Ms. Liu will be under oath.  If any Senator on that committee is brave enough to ask our tough questions it is Senator Tom Cotton. We urge CHQ readers and friends to contact Sen. Cotton and urge him to get answers to our questions. Contact Sen. Cotton’s DC office at (202) 224-2353 or contact him via email through this link:
