It Took a Freshman GOP Congresswoman To Pull The Mask From FBI Director Comey…

FBI Director James Comey unmasked as a Deep State Black Hat Operative.

Representative Elise M. Stefanik is a young, freshman republican congresswoman from the Albany New York area.  And using a probative questioning timeline, she single-handily pulled the mask from FBI Director James Comey, yet no-one seemed to notice.

Obviously Ms. Stefanik has not been in the swamp long enough to lose her common sense.

In the segment of the questioning below Rep. Stefanik begins by asking director Comey what are the typical protocols, broad standards and procedures for notifying the Director of National Intelligence, the White House and senior congressional leadership (aka the intelligence Gang of Eight), when the FBI has opened a counter-intelligence investigation.

The parseltongue response from Comey is a generalized reply (with uncomfortable body language) that notification of counter-intel investigations are discussed with the White House, and other pertinent officials, on a calendar basis, ie. “quarterly”.

With the statement that such counter-intel notifications happen “generally quarterly”, and against the backdrop that Comey stated in July of 2016 a counter-intel investigation began, Stefanik asks:

…”when did you notify the White House, the DNI and congressional leadership”?

BOOM!  Watch an extremely uncomfortable Director James Comey outright LIE… by claiming there was no active DNI -which is entirely false- James Clapper was Obama’s DNI.

.

Watch it again.

Watch that first 3:00 minutes again.  Ending with:

…”Because of the sensitivity of the matter”  ~ James Comey

Director Comey intentionally obfuscates knowledge of the question from Rep Stefanik; using parseltongue verbiage to get himself away from the sunlit timeline.

The counter-intel investigation, by his own admission, began in July 2016.  Congress was not notified until March 2017.  That’s an eight month period – Obviously obfuscating the quarterly claim moments earlier.

The uncomfortable aspect to this line of inquiry is Comey’s transparent knowledge of the politicized Office of the DNI James Clapper by President Obama.  Clapper was used rather extensively by the Obama Administration as an intelligence shield, a firewall or useful idiot, on several occasions.

Anyone who followed the Obama White House intel policy outcomes will have a lengthy frame of reference for DNI Clapper and CIA Director John Brennan as the two primary political operatives.   Brennan admitted investigating, and spying on, the Senate Intelligence Committee as they held oversight responsibility for the CIA itself.

The first and second questions from Stefanik were clear.  Comey’s understanding of the questions was clear.  However, Comey directly evaded truthful response to the second question.   When you watch the video, you can see Comey quickly connecting the dots on where this inquiry was going.

There is only one reasonable explanation for FBI Director James Comey to be launching a counter-intel investigation in July 2016, notifying the White House and Clapper, and keeping it under wraps from congress.    Comey was a participant in the intelligence gathering for political purposes – wittingly, or unwittingly.

As a direct consequence of this mid-thought-stream Comey obfuscation, it is now clear -at least to me- that Director Comey was using his office as a facilitating conduit for the political purposes of the Obama White House.

Unfortunately, a slightly nervous Stefanik, never forced Comey to go back to the non-answered question and respond by saying:

No, Mr. Comey, there WAS a DNI in place in 2016, please answer the question of when did you notify him (Clapper) and the White House?

….. then it would get a little ugly:

Why did you notify Clapper and the White House but delay congressional notification?

With all the banter about these hearings, and against this slight moment of clarity of purpose, it bears repeating:

There is only ONE KNOWN Factual and CRIMINAL activity currently identified: the unmasking and leaking of Mike Flynn’s name to the media.

FBI Director Comey states his organization is “investigating”.  Fair enough, however – not a single congresscritter asked HIM if he is the source of the unmasking or leaks.

♦ How can a congressional committee conduct an investigation if they don’t know if the primary witness, the lead investigator, is the source of the leaks?

♦ Wouldn’t the very first step, the actual basis of the foundation for the investigation itself, be to ensure the person conducting the investigation did not participate in the illegality of the conduct being investigated?

Think.

Avoid the shiny things.

Why wouldn’t congress ask this simple question?

Admiral Mike Rogers answers that approximately 10-20 people within his NSA organization had the potential to unmask and/or leak to the media.  Fair enough.

♦ Wouldn’t the first question as follow-up be to ask Admiral Mike Rogers if he is one of those numbered possibilities?

♦ Wouldn’t the second follow-up question, in an authentic inquiry, be to ask Mike Rogers: if he is one of the possibilities with access to that information, then was he actually the person who unmasked or leaked?

If Mike Rogers and James Comey admit they are in charge of two of the possible source organizations for leak activity (expressly known illegal behavior)… then what affirmative confidence has either person expressed to congress to ensure the inquiring body that they personally were not the originating source?

And why didn’t congress ask them?

Think.

There is NO PEA in this shell game of distraction.

Why didn’t congress ask them?

Occam’s Razor – Because the question(s), the brutally obvious question(s), then lead to the follow-up:  If the only criminal activity is the sourcing of the leak, and the two people giving testimony are potential suspects in that criminal activity, then: A)  How can we trust their testimony, and B) Why are we even having this hearing”? (with two people who are suspects in an ongoing investigation)…

The answers reveal the current intention of the intelligence committee is not to actually investigate, but rather to give the outward illusion of investigation.

If they were not merely giving an illusion….  Congress would be pointing out that FBI Director James Comey has a direct and specific conflict of interest that is so glaringly obvious it’s unfathomable no-one see it.

Director Comey, and to a lesser extent Rogers, would have been in direct contact with the prior administration individuals, and entities acting on their behalf, who were politicizing the information being gathered and lying about (ie. leaking to the media) the content therein.

“Because of the sensitivity of the matter”  ~ James Comey

Didn’t Comey further claim in this hearing that lying about the content of (or even the existence of) a counter-intelligence investigation was not itself a criminal act?    Hello?

That said, James Comey has an expressed interest in claiming an ongoing investigation exists (even if it doesn’t) just to ensure the prior administration contact and behavior was shielded behind the wall of “an ongoing investigation”.  Comey says: “Because of the sensitivity of the matter”..  Where “the matter” is the politicized and entirely false information from the White House.

FBI Director James Comey has singularity of knowledge and has cleverly placed himself in a position where there is no “oversight” of his claims.

…”Because of the sensitivity of the matter”  ~ James Comey

See how that works?

At one point in his political life Comey may have been a White Hat, but there’s no doubt his behavior is exactly what a black hat operative would be doing to shield his connection to the black hat activity of the prior administration.

Summary:  Hillary Clinton political operatives manufactured the illusion of a computer connection between Russian entities (financial banks) and the Trump campaign/organization.  Those manufactured points of evidence were then passed along to White House entities who used the political intel community (Clapper to Comey) to open an investigation of nothingness – to nowhere.  The mere existence of that investigation was then used as the originating point for a series of media intel leaks (the narrative) intended to cloud and damage the Trump campaign/organization. FBI Director James Comey, as head of one of the investigative agencies, became part of that political apparatus.  Now, usefulness exhausted and with the media engaged, it’s CYA time all around for the originating entities.

    So, then. Unmasking Comey as a black hat begs the question:

    Why did Comey torpedo Hillary Clinton 10 days prior to the election?

    The only possible answer is that whoever Comey is working for wanted Clinton torpedoed.

    My money is on Obama, who stands to benefit by the political destruction of the Clintons (his only rivals for leadership of the Democrat Party) and believes he has enough operatives in his shadow government to take out Trump, or at least cripple and neutralize him.

    Way back in 2008 I heard people warning that Obama isn’t just another Democrat, he isn’t just another Big Government loving Deep State puppet. He’s something altogether different. Something genuinely malevolent and a threat not only to America but even the Deep State itself.

    Only they’re all too blinded by their own greed and arrogance to recognize the threat.

      Understand the obvious in construct. Don’t read too much into it…

      Comey was backed into the position he found himself in. He was boxed in to participating via the false trail seeded by HRC and minions and delivered to Obama to give to Clapper et al.

      Comey was essentially painted into a position as a co-conspirator to the scheme,… by WH and Clapper who presented the fake intel which demanded further exploration. Regardless of Comey’s later determination as to the validity of the investigation itself, the investigation was the politically intended goal, not the results.

      The creation of the investigation was the goal needed for the later use of leaks, which contained fabricated claims. The investigation provided the narrative.

      Comey would transparently understand mid-narrative-rollout what the political end game was. However, by a certain point his opinion of the validity of the investigation was moot. He stands there as a useful tool – willful of not.

        Thanks for explaining this so well. When Comey said, “because of the sensitivity of the matter,” I was screaming “what sensitivity?” and wanted Stefanik to ask him to explain exactly what he meant and why “sensitivity” precluded telling Congress what they were doing. He apparently briefed the “executive branch” and wanted to keep the information there. Why, then, I wanted her to ask, did Comey and the others decide that whatever this was, it was too “sensitive” to inform the representatives of the People about it. My impression was that the “sensitivity” they perceived was that they were using the investigative powers of the intelligence community to investigate political opponents and knew how that would go over in Congress.

        So, in answer to “Why did Comey torpedo Hillary Clinton 10 days prior to the election?” the answer would appear to be that at some point prior he came to understand that he was being used by HRC and that the whole Trump/Russians narrative was a political dirty trick he participated in. You know. He finally figured out that HE was the mark at the Clinton poker table. He was then just trying to balance out his impact.

        Problem now is that he was up to his eyes in the whole charade, knowingly or not. Savvy dirty political operative or easily duped fool. Not much of a choice for a professional legacy, so he stays on and tries to salvage some semblance of a career out of this mess.

This is just the PUBLIC side…the BLACK side is what everyone should be interested in. These hearings are nothing BUT theatre but SD pointed out, the Black Hats are outing themselves. And OUR President knows this. Apologize for length…too much wishy-washy going on.

      I agree. Most Demoncrats are not intuitive or good at reflection….they just have their interminable tapes running with the rehearsed scripts. Otherwise they would have seen what was coming with Trump: the enthusiasm and large rallies. They were relying (too heavily) on the BIG Clinton Cheating Machine to carry them over the top. I think Roger Stone blocked a lot of this vote cheating (that’s why they hate him so much). …and the huge number of votes that Trump got overwhelmed their cheat system. This is why Hillary, et. al. was in a state of shock – her reaction was not from someone who thought it was a fair contest…..ie. a game of chance.
      About Obama: yes, he is much more evil than most recognize. A textbook Commie.

    I know how much we all hate Comey and I really do but I am going to repeat this that I do not believe he is the leaker. He would have had to leak this info knowing P Trump was president. He was still working and had a job with the current admin. I do not see what he would gain by this leaking because it would not benefit him to do so. Any spying on P Trump would benefit HRC. I believe these leaks are the product of someone from prior admin. I BELIEVE THERE ARE SOME CRIMES O COMMITTED THAT WERE KEPT UNDER WRAPS AND INVOLVED VERY FEW PEOPLE in O’s very small circle.. The FBI has too many people that could out them.

      Comey was not the leaker. As it appears, Comey was a means toward an ends.

      However, that said, Comey’s non-answer to Ms Stefanik shows his pride is now covering for the Obama administration. That removes his capability to be considered an objective investigator of fact.

      The non-answer has now defined him as willfully blind to the authentic administration of justice. He was not truthful at a moment when truth would not have compromised the position of investigative duty.

      There was no risk in answering Ms Stefanik truthfully and saying when he told the DNI and White House of the counter-intelligence investigation. However, he did not do that.

      There are only a few reasons to withhold the truth, when the truth contains no damage to the duty of his position. That reality places upon his head a black hat.

        Agree….Unless there is an investigation into the Podesta Group who was lobbying the Sberbank in Russia in until 9/6/2016, (go check the government website for the Podesta group, how much money they made, who they represented and when the representation ended 9-6-2016). I think the Hillary 9-11 face plant was due to her finding out the dreadful news that the Podesta group was caught lobbying the Russian bank and suddenly was trying to clean up the mess that was going to cone to light…I think something concerning the Russian bank and her handlers was communicated to her on 9-11…I think that names more sense of the 9-11 “fainting spell”.

        BTW, The Sberbank is the bank that managed the transfer of the uranium funds between Russia and Canada, the deal Hillary had cut.

        Add to that, the Podesta group NEVER SECURED the required paperwork (FARA) from the DOJ to REPRESENT A FOREIGN BANK, which was required!

        This was the “paperwork” sword Flynn fell on with his “lobbying snafu” with Ukraine.

        I think in September, that Hillary and her cronies started the Russian angle while forgetting that the Podesta group was doing exactly the same…and doing the lobbying illegally. Thus explains her passing out on 9-11 and her weird ass rant on 9-16-2916 “why I’m not ahead by 50 points” screech.

        The rekeasing of the Podesta emails were the center of Hillary’s worst nightmare.

        She knew that Podesta was not only a burden…his lobbying could come to light…that’s why September was the month that literally destroyed her campaign, she became unhinged…she knew the bones were exposed…she was living in fear if them being assembled so the world would see it was “her team” that had colluded with the Russians, up until SEPTEMBER 6, 2016.

        Go check the FARA listing and search Podesta group.

        A timeline needs to be assembled from the moment that CROWDSTRIKE announced “their findings” then the leaks into the newspaper about investigations into Trump…

        I think things would line up about the cover up, wag the dog investigations.

        Lynch, who was the head of the DOJ…is deeply involved…she knew that Podesta was lobbying the Russians without the DOJ’s approval and that is was close to coming to light in the last weeks of the election campaign.

          You’ve said that a couple times, but it seems to presume a) an innocent answer b) Comey started the investigation before telling the White House and/or DNI.

          The truth could be that it was the White House and DNI who first informed Comey of the basis for an FBI investigation, not the other way around.

          The CIA/DNI or White House failed to get their first FISA warrant, so they went to Comey. Comey didn’t think about officially informing the White House or DNI about starting an investigation because it had already been started at their behest, subsequent to their initially failing to get a FISA warrant.

          The reason Comey didn’t inform the White House / DNi about starting an investigation is wrapped up in what evidence prompted the investigation, such evidence either having come from the White House / DNI directly, or they pushed Comey to investigate evidence fed to him from other sources (DNC leaks?).

          A truthfull answer exposes Comey’s compicity in a conspiracy to undermine Candidate Trump.

    This is why we need to Drain the Swamp and institute term limits. If any other congressmen there were interested in getting actual answers, they would have nailed Comey. Only the newest congresswoman was far enough out of the swamp to start asking questions, and no one backed her up.

    Why is President Trump keeping the traitor Comey around?

    Although with his tweets concerning Comey from the official POTUS account are very interesting, to say the least.

      One thing just doesn’t make sense to me. Mike Flynn was DIA head. Does anyone really think he did not know if he called the Russians, he would be monitored. He also was reported to not support this way CIA etc was operating regarding surveillance.
      I believe this is an investigation started purely so they could say that there is an investigation. What a perfect way to put a cloud of suspicion over Trump.

  31. Good analysis. I’ve thought Comey dirty for some time, and have little opinion on Rogers other than the NSA was corrupted under Obama.

    Isn’t another likely scenario that Comey and perhaps Flynn, while unaware of who the leaker actually was, knows it had to be in their agency? Domestic spying, at least in the past when the United States was a democratic country that abided by the Rule of Law, was limited to FBI counterintelligence. The wiretapping of Flynn–whether he was an accidental target (I seriously doubt that) or not–almost had to be an FBI operation. The agents and supervisors involved are the most likely candidates not to have unmasked Flynn. Whether they leaked or passed the transcript to the political hacks who did is irrelevant. The FBI, likely, was at a minimum complicit.

    This requires a special prosecutor. Chairman Nunez certainly can request one. As for Gowdy….he more or less is a fanboy for Comey and has become untrustworthy.

    As for Rep. Stefanik, she needs to serve as committee chair. We have reached the point where anyone with too much D.C. experience at a minimum isn’t reliable, and at a maximum is corrupt.

      I was watching Gowdy’s face the whole time Comey was testifying. Gowdy never flinched to hear anything Comey claimed or said.
      Not even a raised eyebrow.
      Think F&F, Holder, IRS, HRC, etc., etc.
      Can’t help believing that once more, the fix is in.

  33. What needs to happen next, IMO, is for the White House to put out a carefully worded formal statement (no tweets!) that notes that the appearance of Comey and Rogers today raised far more questions then answered. The statement should make a formal request to the congressional intelligence committee to re-call Comey and Roger’s back before the committee to clean up the many loose ends.

    The statement would enumerate the many questions and concerns raised, such as:

    – Comey’s apparent evasiveness in answering Ms Stefanik.

    – The inherent conflict of interest Comey / Rogers have in investigating the illegal leaks

    – The failure of Comey to confirm that illegal leaks are being investigated

    – Comey said the FBI and DOJ had “no information” to support President Trump’s tweets. Was he playing a game of semantics by using the literal meaning of “wiretaps” i.e. a physical wire tap inside Trump tower (which would never happen even in the old day’s when the physical tap was in the central switching office of the telco) or was he using the broader definition to include all forms of surveillance. This was never clarified by the committee.

    – Concerning the media reports that two FISA requests were made (first one denied) can Comey confirm or deny the reporting is false? If he can state that he has no information to support President Trump’s tweets there should be no reason why he can not answer this question.

    – How could the FBI conduct an 8 month investigation into Russia/Trump ties without conducting electronic surveillance? Did Comey fly his investigators to Russia to interview Putin’s intel agents?

    – Is it true that the DNC denied the FBI access to it’s server and the FBI therefore relied on a report from a 3rd party company to support its claims? If so how can they have “high confidence” that the Russian’s hacked the server when at no point in their investigation did the FBI have physical custody of the server? At no time in their investigation did the FBI experts perform a forensic examination of the server?

    – It was well documented in Wikileaks that the Clinton campaign and DNC had a strategy very early on to paint Trump as a Putin puppet. Given that fact how can the FBI rely on a report from a company hired by the DNC (Crowdstrike) as the basis for their claims that Russia “hacked the election”? What do we know about Crowdstrike? (its CTO is ethnically Ukranian).

    – Prior to Obama’s EO which allowed the NSA to share raw (unmasked) signal intelligence with 16 other intel agencies is it fair to say only 20 people working for the NSA had the authority to “unmask” American entities? After Obama’s EO how many intel agents had access to the raw unmasked data?

    These are just a few questions off the top of my head. I’m sure we could fill pages. The White House should put together a comprehensive list with a request that Comey and Rogers be re-called by the committee. If the questions cannot be answered satisfactorily before the committee the Trump White House should request a special prosecutor to investigate if Obama and his intel Chief’s used the power of their office in an attempt to smear candidate Trump in an effort to change the outcome of the election (Chris Christie or Rudy Giuliani would make good choices for the special prosecutor).

        Speaking of timelines. As I remember it, Hillary was the first to say the Russians were responsible for the leaks/hacks, then she was the first to say all 17 intelligence agencies agreed it was the Russians. How could she be the first to know this stuff? Were the intel agencies following her lead and going along after the fact or was it a pre-planned narrative? Or is my memory failing me? Can somebody check the timeline on this?
        I also remember that, after she said all 17 agreed, a few came out and said they did not, then later fell in line.

          It’s the Slate article where they released the server logs (see below).

          Hillary tweeted (or rather, “The Mole” – her Twitter person – tweeted) EXACTLY three hours later about it.

          The point about “The Mole” is interesting. Her twitter person is sometimes called “The Mole” because he/she posts stuff that is hilariously funny due to irony, unintentional hilarity, double-entendre, etc. People often allege that the person is actually a traitor of some kind. My theory? The person is so rigid in following Hillary’s orders, and so devoted, never warning her off stupid stuff like double-entendres, or posting something EXACTLY a certain number of hours later, that the Hillary stupidity and control just shines right through, unimpeded.

          But note that the “three hours later” comes in very handy, as you will see below.

          Everybody knows Hillary knew all about it. Totally fake and set up, just like everything else about Cankles and her rallies, debates, whatever.

          NOW – here is one more reason why I know these evil jokers are extremely sensitive on this. They had SUPER-PRO disinfo on it almost immediately, when the server log stuff broke – as in people running around the CIA building. Check this out:

          This hoax was done by re-setting the Twitter time zone to Pacific time, so it would match the time of the Slate article. Then they fed this into investigation-space.

          Of course, one way to facilitate that would be to send the tweet at EXACTLY the same minutes as the Slate article. Hmmmm. Interesting. A great type of disinformation – make something coincidental enough, that you can morph it into intentionally discoverable “too coincidental” disinformation – a kind of “Snopes softball” scenario.

          But dig past that to the real story.

          They are trying to discourage and discredit investigations into Hillary’s prior knowledge of the scam to stop and/or control and/or impeach Trump.

          And remember. ALL OF THIS HAPPENED RIGHT BEFORE THE WEINER LAPTOP EMAILS EXPLODED – WHICH FIRE COMEY THEN PUT OUT.

          It’s becoming very apparent what’s going on.

          IT’S NOT “RUSSIA, RUSSIA, RUSSIA”. IT’S “HILLARY, HILLARY, HILLARY”.

      However, whois, the archive links are still there. Hmmmm.

      The server that was used as probable cause in the FISA request that was supposedly communicating with a Russian bank was setup by McMullin.

      The domain was registered to the Trump OrgAINZation. Ex-CIA and Never Trumper Evan McMullin’s sister’s name is, Emily McMullin. The GoDaddy account was opened in 2009, but the domain was registered on 6/29/2016 – right around the time of the first FISA request.

        Mama – I’ve realized that the whole McMullin thing is intentional to externalize it from CIA. It looks too easy and obvious, and at first that threw me, thinking it is PURE disinfo, but it’s actually a very excellent kind of “disinformation as a matrix for real information”. It’s “real rogue Deep State masquerading as fake rogue Deep State” so that the daily approved workings of the CIA are not exposed. Basically using McMullin as a fake Roger Stone that they can attach all their stuff to (Stone being a real rogue, McMullin being a fake.)

        Anyway, I’m totally down with the server timeline where they got in, set up the fakery, got out, observed the traffic, etc.

        Remember the Trump Tower server traffic log from the Salon article that Hillary then tweets about exactly 3 hours later?

        George Webb has lots of great stuff on the server, and I think the setup falls apart there. Webb is not only a network traffic-savvy IT guy himself, but I believe he is getting a lot of great tips on what happened there. He presents a devastating analysis of those server logs. AND he connects it to the FISA request.

        Bottom line – the wheels are falling off a multi-agency attempt to “gain control” of POTUS.

        This is MUST WATCH, even if you’ve seen it, because it leaks the totality of the whole enterprise.

            As soon as I saw Webb postulating this, I realized that keeping the FISA request under wraps is now an imperative. Their whole scheme falls apart on the planting of evidence. THAT is how heads roll. They have to block every path of inquiry that might show their attempted control of Trump is based on cooked books.

            To say nothing of protecting FISA and the idea of secret law that can be used against Americans. SECRET. GLOBAL (Foreign). LAW.

        Either way, Obama would have been briefed and Clapper.
        As part of that investigation, there would have been some sort of monitoring of the Trump campaigns communications justifying Trumps tweets of “wiretapping”
        Trump says the Russian connection is manufactured by the democrats, thus by implication an illegal investigation.

          Their fallback position, of course, will be Obama saying “Well, they informed us, but IT WAS SENSITIVE, so we didn’t interfere.

          But the Watergate killer to all these crooks is that there is no way they weren’t going absolutely nuts with data flying around everywhere about this scheme. The critical directive from Obama (Obama to Brennan, to breach the Trump server) will likely never be found. But all the circumstantial evidence could really become overwhelming.

          Remember – we never found the missing tapes, but there was enough to kick out Nixon. There will be enough here to kick out communism / globalism / whatever. The alien infestation.

    Comey is a perfect creature of the swamp. His performance – indeed the entire show – was a classic illustration of how bad things are in DC. He doesn’t give a damn about truth or the public that employ him.

    His first instinct is survival and his second is partisanship, in this case supporting Obama’s subversion. After all, Obama & Clinton would have all the dirt on him. They own Comey, no doubt about it.

    I’m very worried for Trump. He is quite isolated now. One man can’t beat these creatures when they join cause. He needs to release any incriminating evidence he has in the most public way possible and/or pray that Wikileaks has the goods on these people. Otherwise the swamp might eat him alive.

    Comey has a long history of being a firewall for the Clintons.

    He told everyone on national television that we are an oligarchy and that Hillary is immune to the law, untouchable, and that the rest of us are not immune. How much more in our faces could he get? And he did it while his FBI took cameras away from people trying to document Bill and Lynch meeting on a tarmac.

    Only a Grand Jury Investigation can get to the truth. The FBI is too conflicted. A Grand Jury combined with declassification of selected relevant evidence, in the public interest might do it. One presidential power is declassification. The justification for declassing is weighing the secret evidence against the interest of the public in knowing the facts. This meets and exceeds that bar. The public interest of all involved is the truth of these matters IMO. Somehow an impartial trier of the facts must be found. Where to find one in these times and the stakes involved I just do not know.
