* Two prosecutors, including a top computer crimes investigator, have departed special counsel Robert Mueller’s team investigating links between Trump associates and Russia, leaving Mueller with 15 attorneys on staff.

* It was notable when one of the prosecutors, Ryan Dickey, joined Mueller’s team in November 2017 because he was the first prosecutor on the team known to specialize in cyber crimes.  – CNBC

NUNES BOMB – 7:22 VIDEO — Nunes Demanding Answers By 5pm Today(6-25-18) Regarding FBI Informants Planted In Trump Campaign, by e
POTUS Trump MAGA, Published on Jun 25, 2018

Nine GOP lawmakers signed a letter asking DAG Rod Rosenstein to provide names of everyone “past and present” who has worked on Mueller’s witch hunt after the IG report revealed more anti-Trump bias from FBI attorneys Sally Moyer and Kevin Clinesmith.

The lawmakers say they are “disturbed” by the initial appointments to the probe of agents and attorneys with an anti-Trump bias. Their letter specifically references agent Peter Strzok, attorney Lisa Page and attorney Kevin Clinesmith.

“We know that these biases were shared among multiple people at the FBI and could be easily uncovered by Mr. Mueller with simple vetting,” the letter says. “These individuals should not have been given an opportunity to influence – directly or indirectly – this special counsel investigation.”

The letter also adds that the lawmakers are concerned that “there may be more politically biased investigators” working on Mueller’s team.

Republicans have said they believe Clinesmith is the attorney identified in DOJ Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz’s report on the Hillary Clinton email investigation as “Attorney 2.” The Horowitz report, released earlier this month, includes messages from “Attorney 2” lamenting Trump’s election as well as a missive reading “viva le resistance.”

The letter is signed by Reps. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz.; Scott DesJarlais, R-Tenn.; Jeff Duncan, R-S.C.; Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., Paul Gosar, R-Ariz.; Andy Harris, R-Md.; Jody Hice, R-Ga., Scott Perry, R-Pa.; and Ralph Norman, R-S.C. (CONTINUING — in comment reply below this) >>>>

IMPORTANT FISA Court Scandal Update, NEW Lawsuit for Deep State Whistle-blower, Clinton Emails Hacked?

NOTES:

  1. JAM – Wilmer & Hale are just as corrupt as Perkins & Coie, Covington & Burling and Sidley Austin ! Did lots of research on these firms. All connected to deep state and globalist players.
  2. JL – In the FISA court there is supposed to be legal representation, supposedly 5 top attorneys, to defend the party that is being spied on with the secret court. Any first year law student could find serious objections with all 4 warrants.
    No hearings, no representation, no on ever thought he would win.
  3. MW – The deck was stacked.
    But the cards were a misdeal against TRUMP!
    Now the dealer’s are being exposed for a fixed game!
