If Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC) has any intention of getting to the truth when he questions former FBI Director James Comey about the FBI’s Crossfire Hurricane  investigation this Wednesday, September 30, 2020, he will ask Comey about THE HAMMER and the 47 computer hard drives of evidence of illegal domestic surveillance that CIA contractor-turned whistleblower Dennis Montgomey turned over to Director Comey’s office in August of 2015. 

Questions Senator Graham Must Ask James Comey About THE HAMMER, The 47 Hard Drives, And Comey’s Admission That He “Used To Be A Communist”


  • Mr. Comey, where are the 47 hard drives of evidence provided to the FBI by Dennis Montgomery? We know from your former FBI General Counsel James Baker’s 2018 testimony that the FBI took custody of those hard drives while you were the director.
  • Did you place those hard drives in your home safe?
  • Did you turn those hard drives over to someone else?
  • What did you do with the information stored on those hard drives?
  • Do the hard drives remain in your possession?
  • Did you sell any of the information contained on the hard drives?
  • You told New York Magazine that you used to be a communist and that you don’t know what you are now. Mr. Comey, are you still a communist?

In 2018, Comey’s former FBI General Counsel James Baker testified before a joint congressional committee that Montgomery, through an attorney, had told the FBI that that he was in possession of information about illegal domestic surveillance conducted by the U.S. government: 

Dennis Montgomery, who I believe, to the best of my recollection, he said that he had been a U.S. Government contractor and, in the course of that work, had come across evidence of unlawful surveillance by the government of Americans — and including government officials — and wanted to give that information to the Bureau, which eventually did take place.

Under limited immunity agreements provided by FBI General Counsel James Baker and Assistant U.S. Attorney Deborah Curtis, Montgomery turned over the 47 hard drives at the FBI Miami Field Office on August 19, 2015. 

Baker had dispatched Comey’s two “right hand men,” FBI Special Agents William Barnett and Walter Giardina to Florida to retrieve Montgomery’s 47 hard drives.

Before Montgomery turned over the hard drives to Comey’s FBI, Montgomery travelled to Washington D.C. in 2014 where he met with U.S. District Court Senior Judge Royce C. Lamberth, the one-time head of the FISA court. 

Judge Lamberth verified Montgomery’s security clearance and the highly classified evidence that Montgomery presented. Judge Lamberth recognized that some of that TS/SCI and SAP classified information that Montgomery presented had previously come before Judge Lamberth.

Initially, Judge Lamberth took Montgomery’s classified information to FBI Director James Comey, who did nothing with it.

Judge Lamberth also presented Montgomery’s evidence to several Members of Congress. Most expressed immediate concern over finding out whether there had been any illegal surveillance data collected on them. “Am I in there?” was a typical response. Blackmail and leverage is a powerful weapon. Jeffrey Epstein certainly knew that.

Subsequently, Judge Lamberth took Montgomery’s evidence to Lamberth’s long-time associate, FBI General Counsel James Baker. Baker proceeded, with Assistant U.S. Attorney Deborah Curtis, to strike two limited immunity agreements for Dennis Montgomery.  One agreement was for the production of evidence. The other was for Montgomery’s testimony.

That evidence production took place when Montgomery turned over the 47 hard drives to FBI Special Agents William Barnett and Walter Giardina. Assistant U.S. Attorney Deborah Curtis accompanied Special Agents Barrett and Giardina to Florida in August of 2015, according to Montgomery.

After the FBI verified the information on Montgomery’s 47 hard drives, Special Agents Barnett and Giardina and Assistant U.S. Attorney Curtis debriefed Montgomery while he was under oath and being videotaped in a sensitive compartmented information facility (SCIF) at the FBI Washington Field Office in December 2015. 

“BARNETT believed the prosecution of FLYNN by SCO [Special Counsel’s Office] was used as a means to ‘get TRUMP, ’” according to the FBI’s 302 report of William Barnett’s September 17, 2020 interview.

Montgomery’s spygate evidence, 47 computer hard drives, contains proof that President Barack Obama and his intelligence chiefs John Brennan and James Clapper illegally commandeered the foreign surveillance supercomputer known as THE HAMMER and unlawfully used it to illegally spy on Donald Trump for over five years according to Montgomery. The extended Trump family and their 17 businesses were also under illegal surveillance. 

Montgomery confirmed during a May 14, 2017 radio interview that he worked as a CIA contractor for Brennan and Clapper and that under President Obama, Brennan and Clapper spied on Donald Trump.

“I provided to the FBI 17 businesses of Donald Trump, including the Trump Tower, the Trump leasing programs, all of these different programs, and including Trump himself and the various family members that had been wiretapped under these programs,” Montgomery said in the interview. “There has been a wiretap on Trump for years.”

Those five years span Trump’s time as a private citizen, including as a presidential candidate. Donald Trump was also spied upon as the duly elected President of the United States.

Montgomery revealed that the CIA feared Trump.

President Obama, Brennan, and Clapper also had General Michael Flynn and Flynn’s extended family under illegal surveillance with THE HAMMER.

According to Montgomery, of the 47 hard drives, at least 18 were purchased by the FBI, the CIA, or the Department of Defense. Montgomery states that he is in possession of receipts proving that the U.S. government purchased and provided the hard drives that were used to store the illegally-harvested domestic surveillance data. These are the hard drives which Robert Mueller had previously gone to great lengths to get back into his possession.

Montgomery maintains that Robert Mueller’s FBI provided the computers for THE HAMMER.

Montgomery designed and built THE HAMMER as a foreign surveillance tool to keep America safe from terrorists after 9/11. 

“THE HAMMER” foreign surveillance system featured multiple echelons of safeguards and sign-offs designed to restrict intelligence personnel, up to and including the President of the United States, from exploiting the system to conduct unlawful domestic surveillance, Military sources told The American Report

Under the Obama administration, Brennan and Clapper illegally commandeered THE HAMMER, moved it to Fort Washington, Maryland in February 2009, and transformed THE HAMMER into an illegal domestic surveillance system in order to spy on President Obama’s political enemies, according to Montgomery. Brennan and Clapper used that illegally-collected domestic surveillance data for “ for “blackmail and leverage” on 38 million innocent Americans.

Montgomery turned over evidence of illegal domestic surveillance to Director Comey’s office in 2015 in an effort to alert the FBI that Brennan, Clapper, and other traitorous officials in the Obama administration had engaged in illegal domestic surveillance. The CIA holds no charter to conduct domestic surveillance on Americans. The FBI, which had once been the nation’s premier law enforcement agency, did nothing.

Once Director Comey, a close friend and associate of Robert Mueller, had his hands on the 47 hard drives, he buried that evidence somewhere within, or perhaps beyond, the bureau.

Comey’s actions assured that the evidence on the 47 hard drives could not be used to prosecute President Obama’s egregious spygate activities.

The illegal surveillance of Donald Trump, General Michael Flynn, U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts, Justice Antonin Scalia, one time presiding judge of the FISA court Judge Reggie Walton, 156 Article III judges, over one hundred Members of Congress, government agencies, over 90,000 law firms, business leaders, churches and synagogues, is no small matter. 

Comey orchestrated a number of cover ups, including Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server to send and receive classified information. 

Clinton selling over 20 percent of U.S uranium, a strategic asset, to a military adversary, would have had anyone else dangling from the end of a rope for the crime of treason. 

The question is, will Lindsey Graham stand up to his Deep State colleagues.  Will he stand in protection of the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights, as America’s founding fathers would have done.

Does Lindsey Graham have the wherewithal to fill the boots of great men who came before him? Or will he capitulate to the traitor class?

James Comey, John Brennan, James Clapper, Barack Obama, among others, stole the keys to the kingdom. They seek to steal America and freedom. The American people will fight back.

“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.”
