    From CNBC, so some deniers can actually believe it sicne its just not a Fox news report.

    One revelation in the documents came from an interview with an unidentified person who suggested that Freedom of Information Act requests related to Clinton went through a group sometimes called "the Shadow Government."

    "There was a powerful group of very high-ranking STATE officials that some referred to as 'The 7th Floor Group' or 'The Shadow Government.' This group met every Wednesday afternoon to discuss the FOIA process, Congressional records, and everything CLINTON-related to FOIA/Congressional inquiries," the FBI's interview summary said.

    That group, according to the summary, argued for a Clinton document release to be conducted all at once "for coordination purposes" instead of on a rolling basis as would normally be the case. But the "Shadow Government" did not get its way, and the agency in charge decided for a rolling release, the FBI summary said.

    Thanks for posting that.

    On the issue of a possible "Shadow Government," as a 100% Believer in UFO's and Extraterrestrials visiting Earth I believe there has been a Shadow Government in place for several decades. And if you are that "Shadow Government," why just stop at UFO dis-information.

    This is another reason why I am for full disclosure from our Government on the subject of UFOs.

    Who knows what is being hidden from us.

    We should be thankful a non-politician got elected.

    Trumps wire tap claim came mostly from a NY Times article titled "Wiretapped Data Used in Inquiry of Trump Aides" Now they are trashing their own reports...

    From MSNBC so people can't say it's a Fox News slant.

    From the guy who would have been CIA director had Hillary won.

    Former Acting CIA Director Michael Morell, who endorsed Hillary Clinton and called Donald Trump a dupe of Russia, cast doubt Wednesday night on allegations that members of the Trump campaign colluded with Russia.

    Morell, who was in line to become CIA director if Clinton won, said he had seen no evidence that Trump associates cooperated with Russians. He also raised questions about the dossier written by a former British intelligence officer, which alleged a conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russia.

    Maybe this is TMI, but I just finished taking a dump and thinking about James Comey. If there is something going on (for example a Shadow Government) Comey is either a part of it or it is above his head. So to answer your question, there is no telling...

    It's above his head. And I'm sure he don't want to know anything about it anyway so he can't be held accountable or blackmailed.
    I'm sure people like Mitch McConnell and Harry Reid know all about the shadow government. Even the Clinton's know I'm sure.

    I still find it hard to believe some refuse to think our government isn't doing these things.

    Reminds me of the Ned Beatty Speech on the Mountain in Shooter.


    Senator Charles F. Meachum: "There are no sides. There's no Sunnis and Shiites. There's no Democrats and Republicans. There's only HAVES and HAVE-NOTS."

    "This is a country, where the Secretary of Defense can go on T.V., and tell the American public, oh, that "This is about freedom! It's not about oil!" And nobody questions him, cuz they don't wanna hear the answer, because it's a lie! There are only so many places at the table, Gunnie. Now, are you on the INSIDE, or are you on the OUT?"

    Trying to follow you here. So these are the guys that are responsible for ordering massive quantities of bullets and coffins and they are the ones taking over the closed Walmarts for interment camps?

    No. DHS ordered them

    FEMA would have done the Wal Mart stuff.

    They showed her on TV when I was in Nashville watching the UK SEC game last week and the folks in the bar booed her.

    Maybe not as bad, but he had to be killed for someone else to rise. Don't get me started on this, his death was a conspiracy all the way.
