  2. The FBI’s  “Operation Ghost Stories”  was a counter-espionage operation against Andrey Bezrukov and Yelena Vavilova, a Russian spy couple who were part of the Illegals Program, a network of Russian sleeper agents who were arrested in 2010.

    Donald Heathfield and Tracy Lee Ann Foley had been living for two decades in Canada and then in Europe before they ever set foot in the U.S. to start spying for Russia here. We now know that the FBI was on to them as spies as soon as they got here. In the 80s, these two Russian spies stole their new names and identities from deceased Canadian kids from the 1960s, and under those identities, they started a fake life in Toronto. 

    Although their spy life started in Canada, ultimately, the goal of this spy operation, the reason they were deployed by Russian intelligence in the first place was not to spy on Canada, but instead, to spy on the America.

    The couple lived in Toronto through the ’80s and ’90s. In the ’90s, Donald 
    Heathfield and Tracy Lee Ann Foley had two sons. The spy couple  spoke both French and English at home with their boys. They didn’t speak Russian at home with their boys even though they were from Russia and were native Russian speakers. Their sons had no idea that their parents were Russian at all.

    In 2010, when a federal indictment against these spies was unsealed, the details of what this spy couple was assigned to do here in the U.S. by their handlers in Russia was revealed. The FBI’s investigation has revealed that a network of illegals is now living and operating in the U.S. in the service of one primary long-term goal, to become sufficiently Americanized such that they can gather information about the U.S. for Russia, and can successfully recruit sources 
    who are in or are able to infiltrate U.S. policy making circles.

    They were getting information out of specific individuals in America, and reporting back to Moscow, individuals like a person who had worked in Congress as a legislative counsel, an economics professor who had contacts in Congress and with Washington policymakers. Donald Heathfield reported to Moscow that he had established contact with a former high ranking U.S. government national security official. Heathfield also made contact with a U.S. official working on nuclear weapons at a U.S. government research facility. 

    The FBI was watching them and collecting intel on their operations for that whole 10 year period. The FBI during that time had also put microphones inside the spy’s house. The Russian spies had no clue how much the FBI was on to them, and that their house was bugged. The FBI had secretly gone inside their house on multiple occasions. They had photographed their notes and letters. The FBI also got into a safe deposit box they used to send encrypted messages.

    The lead case agent for Donald Heathfield and Tracy Lee Ann Foley at the FBI, the FBI agent who led this covert FBI operation that monitored those two Russian spies for years, all the surveillance these trained Russian spies were unable to detect, all the intelligence collected on them from right under their noses, and breaking their codes, was an FBI agent named Peter Strzok.

    Strzok, who served 4 years in the 101st Airborne, won a medal for his work on that case. He also worked on other Russian spy rings in the U.S. and Chinese spy rings in the U.S. Over more than 20 years at the FBI, he rose to become the senior agent on all espionage cases at the Washington field office at the FBI. Ultimately, he rose from there to become the head of the counterintelligence division for the whole FBI.

    It makes perfect sense why Trump would attack Peter Strzok, and eventually have him fired from the FBI. Strzok was the senior FBI agents responsible for catching Putin’s spies here in America. Putin helped get Trump elected, and Trump returned the favor by going after the FBI and getting some of their most experienced and best qualified agents removed.  I’m sure Putin was very pleased. And like a loyal Russian asset, Trump continues to attack America’s intelligence agencies.

  3. The men and women who serve within the FBI take an oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States, against all enemies, foreign and domestic. They serve our country the same as our men and women in the military do. And many within the FBI put their lives on the line in service to this country. To watch Trump, Barr, and other republicans, trying to tear down the premier agency tasked with defending America from foreign and domestic threats is reprehensible,  jaw-dropping and appalling. What’s worse, is that they are doing it for the sole purpose of trying to save Trump, a morally bankrupt, unpatriotic, undeserving con-man and criminal.  This….is simply unforgivable.
    Semper Fi…

  4. Nadler warns about the dire threat of a dictator, meanwhile Republicans are grinning ear to ear and thinking how great that would be.

    • Republicans: Hey country is falling apart, violence is increasing, there are signs of people desperately wanting civil war.
      Oh I’m in front of TV camera? “They don’t like us! They hate us! It’s a sham. Flyover states!”

      I’ve never seen this devoted kamikaze fighters since world war 2.

      Sick, isn’t it.

    • 3LD , the Tyrants of the House need to be Resisted , and the WH has the Legal Right to Require Requests From The House Be Rules Valid By The Courts , To Impeach Because The Dems Do Not Want To Follow The Law Is Why The Articles Will Be Tossed In The Trash By The Senate. 🙂

  5. We definitely taking back the house and the Senate 2020🙌🇺🇸

  6. The traitorous criminal has already made the world distrust America; if the Senate refuses to remove him, Americans won’t be able to trust America.

  7. Watching with interest from Australia. It is an absolute farce because the GOP play smear and innuendo without providing factual denials. America is seen as a circus with the biggest clown at the helm. Pathetic blind sycophants doing his bidding. Sad to see a once proud nation is now so divided and unprincipled.

    I hope the blue wave will keep going strong in 2020.

    • If there ever was a “blue wave ” what a stupid term . The Democrats wouldn’t of lost seats in the Senate. Just out of curiosity what is your reason for wanting Democrats to run the country ( your main complaint ) ?

    • @Carlos Carlos Are you still Trolling the YT comments section.

    Republicans should be held accountable, they have a obligation to the country not to one person.

  12. Good ending to the video.

  13. First the Dems were moving too fast just last week…

    Now it’s let’s hurry up and vote..🤣🤣🤣 Republicans don’t know what they want

    • Republicans can’t defend Trump’s actions, so they attack the witnesses and the process. Republicans rarely exceed the mental age of 15. Most are spoiled children throwing themselves on the ground, flailing about and whining.

  14. Jimmy Gyn is becoming a drama queen!
    He Drags and Drags!

  15. 3:32 The Battle of the Bulge 😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂 🍋 🍆 🍋

    Just a reminder that the evidence of Trump’s misconduct in these impeachment proceedings is STILL uncontested.

    Graham 😱🤮🤮😱

  19. Can’t believe how GOP senators act, they don’t make a bit of sense.

    • They aren’t acting like Americans, that’s for certain. I just thought Trump and a handful of Republicans were beholden to Russia. Now it’s becoming clear the entire GOP is compromised and traitors.

  20. “All of us common folk!” Those’d be the VERY COMMON folk who enable paedophiles in showers like Gym Jordon does I suppose.
