The Case Against FBI Director Comey Grows – Intel Committee Chair Devin Nunes Explains Need for White House SCIF Visit…

Throughout the day today liberal media have been trying to make a controversy over House Intel Committee Chairman Devin Nunes visiting the White House on the day prior to his press conference revealing surveillance of Trump transition team members.

The implication of the MSM reporting was that Nunes was in cahoots with the Trump administration.  However, Nunes has explained that the visit to the White House facility was needed because the databases of intelligence are “compartmented”.

Meanwhile, CNN’s insufferable agenda-driven Wolf Blitzer tries to get Chairman Nunes to break the rules and say too much about confidential material.  Blitzer is literally trying to compromise Nunes during his broadcast.  Quite stunning –  SEE VIDEO:

.

Beyond Blitzer trying to dig up information on behalf of those who are at risk from Chairman Nunes, it becomes obvious CNN is trying to signal to the Obama leakers within the aggregate intelligence community and provide them information they can use to defend themselves from further investigation.

All intelligence information is viewed within a SCIF, a Sensitive Compartmented  Information Facility.  The originating entity for the intel information is the proprietary host for their intelligence within their database.  The databases are not connected.  The SCIF in congress does not contain the same information as the SCIF in the executive (or any other intelligence community).

The congressional oversight committee asks each Intel Agency to transmit their originating intel to the congressional SCIF.  The NSA has been cooperative in complying with the Intel Committee’s requests to share the NSA database of their information.  The FBI has NOT been cooperative in sending their proprietary originating intelligence information to Congress or the Intel Committee.

Obviously the information Nunes needed to see (Eisenhower building SCIF) related to the executive office (Obama administration) and their coordination with the FBI (Dept. of Justice).  Hence, only the executive office SCIF database would hold the information because the FBI was/is refusing to send it to the House Intel Committee.

The reality of James Comey actively working to the benefit of the Obama White House is becoming increasingly obvious.

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.

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.

                  IMO if he recused himself, it was because he felt that, ethically, he had no choice in the matter. Sessions has integrity. PDJT was (according to gossip) highly frustrated with Sessions for doing so, but Sessions has to do what is right. The same quality that made PDJT choose Sessions turned out to be an inconvenience–once.

                  A good trade, IMO.

                Awesome! Thanks – I didn’t know the extent of the recusal.

                Sounds like Sessions didn’t recuse himself from the election per se, either, because if I’m right and the Obamatized CIA has been using “Trump/Russia attribution” to cover up their failed attempt to pull it out by a server reload in Pennsylvania, then Sessions himself can indict Brennan and company for that one.

                Gad, these people are nasty! They really risk a civil war if they try to evade by sliming Trump with their own doing. For that, I’d like to see Propaganda Beayatch Maxine Waters swinging.

                Do you realize that Crazy Waters, in her pride, basically blew the whistle on Montgomery? THAT is what she was gloating about with her “Obama has put together a database” comment! The massive collect that came in from the Montgomery tech! She must have gotten a “10,000-foot view” description from Jarrett.

                  It is Montgomery who is in the possession of 60 hard drives and 600,000 docs he took with him as he resigned to be blowing the whistle on this massive treason like op ergo how WikiLeaks Vault 7 started by the white hats.
                  Waters is a dumb woman who should never be in any position of politics although her skin color affords her lifetime employment via gerrymandered district where she never faces an opponent.

    Is it possible that Wolf and some of the Democrats on the committee are nervous because they may, ( and I am careful to say “may” ), have received or leaked classified intelligence, and Wolf is trying to get Nunes to do the same so that way everyone is guilty ?

    Then the Democrats on the committee could say, “Hey, we didn’t do anything that Nunes didn’t do.”

    I truly believe this week will be a turning point for our President. Comey spent an entire hour last Friday at the WH. That is unheard of. The fact that the FBI was provided that data from Montgomery and now are being called out about it leads me to believe that his days are numbered.

    He and Admiral Rogers were to be questioned behind closed doors on Tuesday. According to Nunez on BOR this evening, they are refusing to go and speak with the House Intelligence Committee. That is unbelievable! I think Admiral Rogers is playing along not to tip his hand. That is why he isn’t going without Comey. I believe Rogers is a white hat since Representative Nunez stated that the NSA has been cooperating and the FBI hasn’t.

    I also think that Montgomery’s attorneys are growing impatient. Wikileaks has all the data as an insurance plan. Once this all comes out, not only will Obozo’s folks will be crapping their pants but GWB’s folks as well since it all started back in 2004.

    Our Lion will use the momentum from having this revealed and Obozo’s cast of characters taking the 5th when they appear before the House Intelligence Committee to not only drain the swamp but put every single congressman and congresswoman on notice that the fun is over.

    James Comey is a dead man walking! I don’t have a doubt in my mind now he will resign or commit suicide. Once he and his lieutenants are gone, nuclear holocaust will fall throughout D.C. because the white hats in the FBI will be liberated. Throughout the next couple of years folks will be arrested and brought to trial. Jeff Sessions showed us today he is ready, willing and able to get the job done. Obozo’ legacy will live in infamy as the worst thing that ever could have happened to this country. I honestly wonder if he will ever come back to D.C. Wouldn’t shock me that he lives out his life in Hawaii.

There is NO piggybacking going in to a SCIF, either – everyone is required to swipe their card. The entrance/exit is also under continuous video observation/recording so the computerized record can be matched with a visual record. Classified material can leave a SCIF but ONLY in a highly-specialized manner. 99.9% of the time it’s transmitted electronically via classified means anyway. Some stuff at one agency can be shared with other agencies however the originating agency is responsible for classifying the material before it is released. There is a line in this material that specifically states the source of the material, and I’d like to see those lines myself as re: material Nunes is talking about.

    The President has the power to fire the FBI Director, the 10 year term is not guaranteed.

    Bill Clinton fired the FBI Director appointed by Reagan, so Trump can fire the FBI Director appointed by Zero.

    Congress can delay the New FBI director, but getting rid of Comey is a good start to drainging the swamp.

    Incredible stuff!

    I’ve come to the view that the white hats in the IC community, perhaps with Steve Pieczenik as one of the leaders, shortly after the election, gave POTUS a detailed Intel briefing on all of this sordid treasonous stuff and the players involved therein. Included in these briefings were Nunes and Stefanik. None of the swampers on the Committee would suspect Nunes and certainly not pristine newcomer Stefanik. Both white hats, both reside under the radar. I would not be surprised if The IC white hats also fed/suggested to Stefanik that killer question to Comey, leading to his lyin’ answer that will eventually bury his career. Nunes bypassing his Committee and going straight to Trump was a necessity.

    Trump kept Comey on as FBI Director to grease the springs on the trap.

    Comey and Rodgers summoned to appear tomorrow before Nunes committee and they refuse. Really? WHOA!

    Sessions today announcing penalties against sanctuary cities if they refuse to comply.

      I still do not understand what exactly the scope of his recusals consist of. It appears broad and vague. Not specific. He is not a judge, his bar of impartiality seems strange.

      “Having concluded those meetings today, I have decided to recuse myself from any existing or future investigations of any matters related in any way to the campaigns for President of the United States.

        Note that his recusal only covers “any matters related in any way to the campaigns for President of the United States”. So far, it appears the Nunes stuff may relate solely to the transition period after DJT was elected. Therefore, if that is correct, Sessions could well be involved in investigations of the Nunes material because the surveillance and intel reporting took place after the Presidential campaigns had finished.

    I have often wondered why Trump kept Comey on at the FBI. Maybe it was to get to all the truth and to expose it. Something a 3D chess player would do.

    Sometimes in the course of a day it is difficult to understand all that is going on and in the process not get discouraged – in my older age. Then I come here and after reading Sundance’s posts, things seem to fall into place and the murky areas become clearer. Thank you, Sundance, for all that you do and for helping me to maintain my sanity.

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen Comey use so much hand gesturing/movements throughout this entire ordeal going all the way back to last July. Comey’s gestures are reminiscent of Slick Willy’s finger gesture when he denied he’d never had sex with “that woman”. Comey was doing the same; trying to cover up his lies with the Clinton technique. Mrs. Stefanik sure rattled that monkey’s cage.

        As has been mentioned, Comey’s body language in reaction to one of Stefanik’s questions is most telling. To someone like Trey Gowdy (who I think was seated next to her), that pause, Comey’s eyes, his hands, and then finally his upward start and then lean are all saying that question was one that should have been pursued vigorously. A good prosecutor can do that. I believe Gowdy made his own observations and notes re: that exchange and will return to that ground on his own later.

    It would seem that Comey was complicit in trying to produce an October surprise. Apparently Comey bought the Russian conspiracy theory the Democrats were pushing. so they sent Comey on a “fishing expedition” to find the evidence and there was/is no evidence.

      I’m hoping – praying – Gowdy or others demand to be given the FBI Case Control Numbers for the investigations that HAD to be started on those American citizens who were allegedly fingered by the FBI. Each case has to show in writing a rationale for the case beginning, what statutory violations, or suspected violations, are being investigated. There should also be reviewing documents where the case was briefed to higher management, who that higher management was, and what path the investigation should have taken after each review. Those reviews should also show if the case was going nowhere, at which time it should have been closed – IMMEDIATELY. If the US citizen subject of the investigation is doing nothing discernibly wrong after prolonged or detailed investigation – and by the FBI, of all people – it should have been closed, If it was kept open despite no reason being given that can only mean it was done for partisan or personal reasons, and by one of the reviewers – not the control agent. If you’re expending manpower and technical support without a record of it being done – well, we all know the govt’s passion for record-keeping, which makes that action highly suspect.

    So Nunez says (1) he didn’t see anything illegal (in fact says the data was legally collected), just troubling, and (2) refused to say he saw unmasked names, and (3) disputes Trump “wiretapping” tweets.

    Why is everyone so excited and measuring everyone in DC for prison suits?

        Disinformation. Gotta parse his comments. Didn’t see anything illegal, just troubling – that last statement can cause him to revisit that “illegal” word, which should have been followed by “- yet.’ He didn’t say whether or not he saw unmasked names – he just refused to say he saw them. He may have disputed Trump’s wiretapping tweets because he’s got a difference in terminology with the President – or he hadn’t seen anything up to that point that indicated Trump was tapped. That can always change with further revelations. Legally collected data can be used for all sorts of nefarious purposes. For that, we need an investigative record. He should be demanding the FBI intel cases or operations files that covered each of these persons. He may already be doing so.

    My father, WW2 vet, always said Wolf Blitzer reminded him of an old German U boat commander. The plot really thickens and I smell real fear amongst the Democrats, the former administration and key intelligence figures on all this. Nunes has proof, he most likely went to White House to review the information in a SCIF, for several reasons, especially in light of the fact that everything Is being leaked. The collusion and criminality is ominous. Prosecutions and tightening intelligence laws need to be enacted. MSM and Congressional Democrats, are trying to quell all of this, but the truth will be LEAKED.

  29. If as intimated by Nunes – Obama’s daily briefing contained information on Trump’s activities and activities of his campaign team – President Trump should not waste any time getting a copy of such briefing materials he should then use his authority to declassify the incriminating briefing material and release it to the public. He should not waste any time in doing this – frankly it should have been done by now.

      Every piece of data presented on the intel reports I saw had at the end of the narrative a quick blurb about the source material; where the originator of the piece got their information, so if necessary it can be replicated by independent research, for debate or corroboration. if I were Nunez I would be looking for those sources to see if they had anything more they’d care to provide.

  31. Wolf Blitzer tries to get Rep Nunes to violate the secrecy oath at the same time that Schumer is calling for Nunes to be removed. If I didn’t know better I would think there was collusion between Blitzer and Schumer to discredit Nunes so Schumer’s removal argument would have merit. I’m probably over thinking it. /sarc

    Of all of the threats our country has faced since its founding, none has been as great as these politicized security agencies.

    Wolf Blitzer’s interrogation is out of place for a news reporter. It looks to me as though he is reading prepared questions from someone outside the station. Which is of course Sundance’s point. Shocking, even after we know how useless CNN is. Blitzer has zero interest in getting at why the information was not provided to the Congressional committee, or in understanding that people were spied upon — both the real news stories here. Nunes handled this well.

    What on earth has happened to our country? Some swamp indeed.
