Chairman Pete Sessions (TX-CD17) appears to have taken the first step in what could be a very lengthy process of sunlight.  Chairman Sessions has sent a preservation letter to Georgetown University School of Law, identifying a couple of people at the root of the problem, Rosa Brooks and Mary McCord. {SEE HERE}

RED STATE – […] Sessions specifically singled out Professor Mary B. McCord for Brooks’ attention. McCord is now the executive director of the Georgetown University School of Law’s Institute for Constitutional Advocacy and Protections, or ICAP. 

Just as Brooks is no utility player, neither is McCord.

Before McCord joined Brooks’ team at Georgetown, she was a holdover from President Barack Obama, serving in the early months of the Trump administration.

As the acting assistant attorney general for the National Security Division, McCord worked with another Obama holdover, acting Attorney General Sally Q. Yates, worked together to kneecap National Security Advisor Michael T. Flynn.

Mary McCord

The subcommittee chairman quoted McCord in the letter from an interview she gave to NBC News, in its Jan. 14 web article, “Fears grow that Trump will use the military in ‘dictatorial ways’ if he returns to the White House.” 

McCord told NBC: “We’re already starting to put together a team to think through the most damaging types of things that he [Trump] might do so that we’re ready to bring lawsuits if we have to.”

The congressman then made a request:

Please define if Professor McCord and her colleagues are conducting this hyperpartisan activity under the auspices of ICAP—an entity which is described as a ‘non-partisan institute within Georgetown University Law Center.

While both Brooks and McCord are key players within a corrupt network, it is Mary McCord who can be directly traced to the origin of every attack against President Donald Trump and his administration.

There is not a single element of the Lawfare construct targeting Donald Trump that does not trace in origination back to Mary McCord.

To give you an idea of the scope of influence of Mary McCord as a key functionary, consider what we can document.

♦ McCord submitted the fraudulent FISA application to spy on Trump campaign (2016).

♦ McCord created the “Logan Act” claim used against Michael Flynn and then went with Sally Yates to confront the White House (2017).

♦ McCord then left the DOJ and went to work for Adam Schiff and Jerry Nadler on their impeachment teams (2018).

♦ McCord organized the CIA rule changes with Intelligence Community Inspector General Michael Atkinson. [Atkinson was McCord’s general counsel when she was acting head of the DOJ-National Security Division.] That 2019 coordination, with her former colleague, created the baseline for the false claims of National Security Council member Alexander Vindman and the Ukraine-narrative impeachment effort.

♦ McCord led and organized the House joint committee impeachment effort, in the background, using the evidence she helped create (2019).

♦ McCord joined the FISA Court to protect against DOJ IG Michael Horowitz’s newly gained NSD oversight and his review of the Title-1 surveillance warrant – the FISA that targeted Carter Page.  A FISA warrant McCord originally constructed and submitted to the FISA court a few years earlier (2019).

♦ McCord then joined the J6 Committee helping to create all the Lawfare angles they deployed (2021).

November 3, 2021 – In Washington DC – “Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.) and the House Jan. 6 Select Committee has tapped Mary McCord, who once ran the Justice Department’s National Security Division, for representation in its fight to obtain former President Donald Trump’s White House records. (read more)

♦ McCord then coordinated with DA Fani Willis in Georgia (2022).

January 10, 2024 –  Georgia prosecutors probing Donald Trump’s effort to subvert the 2020 election got an early boost in the spring of 2022. It came from another set of investigators who were way ahead of them: the House Jan. 6 select committee.

Committee staff quietly met with lawyers and agents working for Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis in mid-April 2022, just as she prepared to convene a special grand jury investigation. In the previously unreported meeting, the Jan. 6 committee aides let the district attorney’s team review — but not keep — a limited set of evidence they had gathered. (read more)

♦ McCord is working with Special Counsel Jack Smith to prosecute Trump (2023 through today).

In short, Mary McCord is the Lawfare string that winds through every legal ‘stop Trump’ effort; yet, until now no one has ever called her out!  (Read more: Conservative Treehouse, 3/24/2024)  (Archive)
