Oh Lookie Here – Report: Comey Used Jeb Bush/DNC Commissioned Dossier To Gain Trump FISA Warrant…

Oh what a tangled web is weaved…. Apparently, the FBI used the Jeb Bush/DNC Commissioned opposition research dossier on candidate Trump as evidence to the FISA court to gain a warrant for surveillance.   Things just got more interesting.

If this report via CNN is factual in its baseline accuracy, methinks the motive for the stuttering obfuscation of FBI Director James Comey just gained some sunlight.

Washington (CNN) – The FBI last year used a dossier of allegations of Russian ties to Donald Trump’s campaign as part of the justification to win approval to secretly monitor a Trump associate, according to US officials briefed on the investigation.

The dossier has also been cited by FBI Director James Comey in some of his briefings to members of Congress in recent weeks, as one of the sources of information the bureau has used to bolster its investigation, according to US officials briefed on the probe.

This includes approval from the secret court that oversees the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) to monitor the communications of Carter Page, two of the officials said. Last year, Page was identified by the Trump campaign as an adviser on national security.  (read more)

Remember the comments from Chairman Devin Nunes when he shared:  Mike Rogers (NSA) was very willing to provide the intelligence committee with evidence; however, James Comey (FBI) was not forthcoming with the requests made by the committee.

Why would FBI Director James Comey be vested in keeping information withheld from the oversight committee?  Ah, now it’s time to bring back the public hearings.

Reminder:

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.

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

“I was urging my former colleagues, and, and frankly speaking the people on the Hill [Democrat politicians], it was more actually aimed at telling the Hill people, get as much information as you can – get as much intelligence as you can – before President Obama leaves the administration.”

“Because I had a fear that somehow that information would disappear with the senior [Obama] people who left; so it would be hidden away in the bureaucracy, um, that the Trump folks – if they found out HOW we knew what we knew about their, the Trump staff, dealing with Russians – that they would try to compromise those sources and methods; meaning we no longer have access to that intelligence.”

“So I became very worried because not enough was coming out into the open and I knew that there was more.  We have very good intelligence on Russia; so then I had talked to some of my former colleagues and I knew that they were also trying to help get information to the Hill.”

~ Evelyn Farkas

    I go back to my previous comment on this issue and they put all there eggs in that dossier to take out President Trump before the inauguration. The problem is the Brits had the wrong Michael Cohen, which led to this complete fail and when that broke all their stories changed they all started saying there was nothing there there with the Russia collusion. Keep researching this dossier and all the strings will come down on who, when, why they were monitoring and sabotaging President Trump.

    Sundance,

    If the purpose was to give the illusion of an investigation, then why did Stefanik position Comey so close to the edge of the cliff? Comey was so close he felt the need to OUTRIGHT LIE for dear life. Seems to me they didn’t need to go to such lengths to create such an illusion. I get the sense that President Trump wants to keep Comey The Clown around until Comey’s usefulness is completely exhausted in terms of hanging himself and his accomplices.
    But perhaps it is just a sham after all, what do I know.

          Gowdy HAD Hillary on her home server issue, had her by the short hairs under oath, but failed to ask about her “intent” among other things….he avoided making sure she had testified to ALL the conditions necessary to prove a crime had been committed ….Its all just a big con. EVERYBODY seems to be in on it.

          I believe Trump and Sessions want to go after all this stuff, but understand that they have to make significant inroads into the Deep State infrastructure to get convictions….which will include getting uncompromised Federal judges appointed and new leadership at the top of the FBI. I think they are dragging their feet on indictments because they only get 1 chance to convict, and there’s too many obstacles (human ones) in the way to get the convictions.

          Sorry to burst the bubble here but a few facts about Stefanik. She’s our congresswoman. (From Glens Falls, NY). She is in her second term (not first and thus not a freshman). We voted for her in her original run for office because she touted conservative policies and positions. Then we watched as she consistently voted along with Boehner taking RINO after RINO positions, etc. She then followed suit with Ryan. She lost our votes the second time around. She takes her marching orders from the Speaker pure and simple. My guess, and it’s only a guess, that she got taken out to the woodshed after her Comey ‘questioning’ and we’ll never hear another peep outta her. So sad.

All 3 sisters are rabid Ukrainian nationalists and Putin haters. They expected spots in the WH when Hillary won and a subsequent US led NATO effort to remove Putin. Gowdy might do better if he’s looking for the truth, if he backtracked and traced the source and dissemination of the Russia story. Such an investigation would reveal the interference in our election from foreign entities such as the Ukraine and their buddies in the AC. These are the entities are undermining our elections, our government and pushing us towards war. Again, where did the story come from and how was it spread and used? Finally, Wikileaks revealed that part of Hillary’s campaign strategy to attack Trump was, from the beginning, to paint him as too soft on Russia.

    Just throwing this out there, perhaps Come didn’t brief committee about dossier (from McCain) used for FISA “due to sensitivity” because the dossier was so inflammatory and it was in middle of campaign and was concerned about leaks on unsubstantiated claims? On the other hans, doesn’t make sense though that he’d allow that same info to be used for FISA. The same dossier that Clapper basically stated wasn’t credible but had to brief Trump about anyways, which is also the time when “the story” broke… it’s all fishy, but I wonder perhaps if that fired Priebus staff member was the origin of the leak?

        Or if he’s just a ‘dirty cop’ like has been reported by some of the white hats, anonymously.

        But he did what he did to proclaim that Hillary was “clean”.

      Ho hum, 650k emails kept by Anthony Weiner just for the fun of it. ZZzzzzzzz. Nothing happening as a result of those emails that I have heard.

      Recently Huma and Hillary were reported doing therapy shopping on the Ritz. Maybe one day we will wake up and hear buried in the middle of page 12 that 10,000 pedophiles (Silicon Valley Billionaires – Google Facebook, News Network executives, Bankers, Judges, Bishops, Cardinals, Senators, Congressmen / women, governors, mayors, police chiefs, FBI big whigs, Generals, Admirals, Lobbyists, NBA, NFL coaches, etc) whose names are withheld were arrested and now out on bond.

      All I smell is sulfur from DC. Wake me when it is time to reelect Trump. Maybe in Trump’s second term he can afford to drain the swamp and not care about losing RepubliDemons he needs to pass legislation?

      Keep Ivanka away from those emails. She might want Trump to use some drones on US soil. Oh, that’s right, the CIA mans those. /s

      I have always thought the Trump spying went way back to the birth certificate situation days. Obama has thin skin and is a vindictive person. And Trump must be squeaky clean because if they had found anything it would have been used back in the primaries to stop him from being President. If all they got was the P***y Gate tapes then he is darn near a saint compared to your typical politician these days.

        Plus, Trump has always been transparent from the 1970s to this day. We knew all about him via the press, warts and all: failed marriages, cheating and business deals that went bust.

        While that prevented some notionally high-minded people from voting for him, the rest of us knew what we were getting.

        That never happened with Obama. In fact, his campaign team tightly controlled what the public knew. Anyone who questioned it was called all sorts of names.

    Sundance,
    What took 26 letters for you to describe James Comey –‘Deep State Black Hat Operative’—
    I can say in just 7 –‘Traitor”. How frightening it is to discover the treason that exists at the heart of our government, in both Parties, in all departments. Between the corrupt power of the politicians and the apathy of most Americans that has allowed that power to thrive, I wonder, if even the gallant efforts of Trump can prevail. In 1837 Andrew Jackson warned us:
    …It behooves you, therefore, to be watchful in your States as well as in the Federal Government… You have no longer any cause to fear danger from abroad; your strength and power are well known throughout the civilized world, as well as the high and gallant bearing of your sons. It is from within, among yourselves–from cupidity, from corruption, from disappointed ambition and inordinate thirst for power– that factions will be formed and liberty endangered. It is against such designs, whatever disguise the actors may assume, that you have especially to guard yourselves……
    With all the corruption you are exposing on a daily basis, I for one, can no longer be optimistic. I wish I could, but i can’t.

    I am trying to express my thoughts in a short space, so I hope what I am writing makes sense. After having read everything over the last several months, I can’t help but to keep going back to Hitlery. Much of what we have become accustomed to was put into place for her to glide into the presidency, including former (or are they) Clinton operatives in the MSM. I am even of the mind that the Clintons threatened Obama into campaigning for her (“We have all of your sealed records, Barry!”). IMO the Clintons are still the evil wind beneath the Dims; Obama is the “shiny object” that distracts. My opinion is that she “lost” to him just as Bernie “lost” to her. Obama is Hitlery 2.0 and would guarantee the same progressive advances in a more palatable way. Now we know that Hitlery hired an outside server company for her emails, but is she also involved in the Awan brothers working for the DNC/Intel members for the very same reason, and are they MB, like Huma, who was somehow the overseer? Both Comey and Lynch have very long associations with the Clintons, so is it possible that they have been paid off (or just paid a salary for lack of a better term) by the Clintons even while holding public office, to ensure their loyalty? IIRC Bill is part of the Arkansas organized crime/drug trades, so pay-offs and such would be SOP. Could the “Tarmac” meeting between Bill and Lynch be related to the first FISA, or to the dossier, since this all ties in just before July 1? We know that the Clinton Foundation is a multi-tentacled money laundering operation, so who’s to say that there haven’t been kickbacks to loyalists to keep greasing the skids to get Hitlery the presidency. We know that the CIA can mimic foreign hackers, and Obama’s regime hacked the voting systems of a couple of states, perhaps to alter more votes. Maybe that’s why there were unusual delays in reports from many urban areas on election night. But all of what we have learned I think leads back to her and not Obama, as wretched a person as he is. It was Hitlery who was to be the beneficiary from the whole nefarious twisted clockwork.

        Sundance can’t do all the heavy lifting. Many of the posts here have

    To really understand what lengths they went to in order to create the “Russian” narrative you need to read Adam Carter’s research on Guccifer 2.0, the alleged Russian hacker.

    http://g-2.space

    It was a whole operation to add Russian fingerprints to information shopped to the press and passed off as hacked and leaked information, which they tried to associate with Assange and Wikileaks.

    Curiously a DNC tech consultant named Warren Flood accidentally left his name in metadata within several word .docs.

    “we know that the first 3 documents were all created from the same blank Russian-language template and that contents from original documents were then copied into each at a later stage.”

    – Seth Rich

    Adam also analyze the strange Twitter direct messages between Guccifer 2.0 and Playboy model Robbin Young.

    Guccifer 2.0 contradicts his previous story that he hacked the DNC by eluding to his whistle blower named Seth who’s murder he wants to see investigated.

    http://g-2.space/sr/

    “At this point in time, Guccifer 2.0 was under the impression it had successfully attributed itself to Russian hackers (through it’s efforts on the 15th of June) – So, by attributing itself to Seth, it was preemptively discrediting Seth (tying him to a supposed “Russian hacker”) before there was a chance for anyone to discover or disclose him as being a source of DNC emails.”

    If people are not convicted and imprisoned for this, there should be a mass scale revolt.

    Let me get this straight: Comey used a known piece-of-garbage “dossier” in a FISA court warrant application? How is that not front page news across the nation? The very fact that James Comey, Director of the FBI, is using a completely manufactured piece of garbage opposition research POS produced by Trump’s enemies, in an actual FISA court application setting, to set up surveillance of an American citizen, who happens to be in the orbit of a national political candidate for the American presidency and an enemy of the sitting President at that time???? And the FISA court didn’t laugh in his face and throw it out?

    So Trump’s enemies outside of government manufacture a “computer controversy” and a “dossier controversy”, both completely fictional, then hand it to Trump’s enemies inside Obama’s DOJ, run by Comey, and he takes it and uses it as a foundation to construct a surveillance net around Trump??!??

    You want to talk about collusion? This should be screaming headlines this entire week.

    All we know right now is that Carter Page was surveilled, apparently only based upon this FLIMSY, completely fictional document filled with lies. Apparently in 2017, you can now create a Word document filled with lies about your opponent and take it to the most secretive, powerful court in the land, and Voila! Surveil your opponent using the machinery of the state!!! Ain’t America grand?

    But what almost pisses me off even more is the dripping now, the constant leaks about HOW they did this, as if they think for even one second they’re going to get away with it. Now they’re leaking, bit by bit, in a pathetic attempt to justify what they did. Telling us how they used British intelligence. Telling us how they surveilled Carter Page. Now telling us what they used for the FISA application. Tomorrow, maybe the NYT will go to the presses with their totally innocuous reason for why Manafort & Stone just happened to be surveilled. Totally legal and above board, you see.

    No, you utter scum, that’s not how it’s gonna go down. We know what you did. We’re going to dig and dig and keep digging until we know everyone that was involved, and then you’re going to see prison sentences. NYT pieces trying to spin it will do nothing. Selective leaks trying to justify your Stalinist police state tactics will do nothing. You dun messed up because you thought you were God. And now we smell blood. And we ain’t lettin you off.

The Counter-Intelligence Division reports to the National Security Branch, which in turn reports to the FBI Deputy Director, which in turn reports to Director Comey, who in turn reports to the Attorney General.

      For Comey to suggest the “Head of the Counter-Intelligence Division” reports to Congress without the “filter” of the chain of command is an egregious lie, and a lie I’m positive did not escape those in Congress hearing this testimony. Clearly, the “fix” is in.

So not sure what the Congress thought about Comey’s answer. BTW the Head of FBI Counterintelligence is (acc to Wiki) C. Frank Figliuzzi, who was appointed in early 2011.

    We the people lost control of the money that flows through government a long time ago, with disastrous consequences. Government now answers only to entities that can buy Congress, which in turn controls the nation’s purse strings.

    President Trump being the smart man he is, should push for “The Budget and Accounting Act of 2017” to revamp the legislature by the same name created in 1921 – Link:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Budget_and_Accounting_Act

    There is no “real” accountability in out government because The GOA (Government Accounting Office) works FOR congress, and the congress is “bought and paid for”. In other words, the GOA has no teeth.

    The act created in 1921 is also credited for creating the “Institutional Presidency”, which Roosevelt turned into the modern construct we know today by instituting a huge White House Staff:

    https://www.buffalolib.org/vufind/Record/736027/Reviews

    Interestingly, the 1921 act and Roosevelt’s creation led to the logical outcome, massive government size and expenditures, during the Eisenhower, Kennedy and Johnson presidencies “Johnson’s Great Society”.

    Watch Adm Rogers’ body movements during Comey’s testimony. I watched with the sound muted.

    At 00:30, Adm Rogers lowers his eyes. 00:36, Adm Rogers begins shifting in his chair slightly. 00:39, Adm Rogers’ head lowers, jaw sets, head completely down, eyes hidden. 00:54, Adm Rogers’ head raises slightly, tips to the right – Adm Rogers is now listening to Rep Stefanik’s question.

    01:30, Adm Rogers turns his head, looks at Comey, then averts his eyes, again listening.

    03:23, Adm Rogers’ eyes come up, and begins nodding his head in agreement with Comey’s words. 03:36, Adm Rogers’ head and eyes go back down, jaw sets more firmly, lips purse slightly, and is once again basically motionless, listening to Comey’s words.

    03:46, Comey looks to Adm Rogers for affirmation. Adm Rogers gives slight nod of head, continues nodding until 03:53. 04:04 Adm Rogers is nodding more forcefully, mouths “yes,” continues nodding until 04:07, eyes looking at Rep Stefanik.

    Adm Rogers, while speaking, remains basically motionless except for the right hand/arm movements and some head and face gestures. Eyes remain basically down or averted. Adm Rogers at times does look directly at Rep Stefanik.

    Adm Rogers is a listener. Is Adm Rogers deceptive, based on the normally averted eyes? Nope. Some of us do this instinctively. Most others must be taught. Adm Rogers is a natural, imo. While the eyes are eliminating all visual distraction, the ears and brain are performing analysis.

    If Adm Rogers is a Black Hat, I will eat Adm Rogers’ cover. If Comey is a White Hat, I will eat Comey’s hat, with my humblest apologies.

    In the response letter to Grassley, FBI Assistant Director Gregory Bower both confirmed that McCabe is involved in the Trump investigation and denied that a recusal was necessary.

    “With respect to the questions you raised regarding Mr. McCabe recusing himself from participation in this investigation, the FBI has assessed that there is no basis in law or in fact for such a recusal,” Bower wrote.

    “As the Deputy Director of the FBI, Mr. McCabe is ultimately responsible for supervising all of the FBI’s investigative activities, including the investigation referenced in your letter,” he continued, adding that McCabe has been involved in the investigation since its inception.

    So instead of doing the ethical thing, like Sessions and Nunes, McCabe get a free pass because “there is no basis in law or in fact for such a recusal”. To me the FBI is waving the middle finger at Congress and basically saying to them “you can’t make us”.
