Asst. U.S. Attorney General Rosenstein Warns America About Media Sources: “Do Not Trust Anonymous Officals”…

I’ll keep pointing out the obvious.  Just like the previous battle in the intelligence community, there is a battle between Black Hats and White Hats within the U.S. Justice Department’s (FBI and DOJ) unelected career bureaucracy.

If you read the Washington Post report claiming President Trump was under investigation for Obstruction of Justice by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, you will immediately note the first paragraph was framed specifically around “Anonymous Officials“.  Again, tonight those same “anonymous officials” are mentioned in a Washington Post report claiming Jared Kushner is being investigated.

There is a great deal of false and misleading MSM information; in addition to the layers upon layers of hand-wringing, speculation, and professional financially driven anxiety banter surrounding Special Counsel Mueller and his appointment by Rod Rosenstein.

All of the above said; and with a full appreciation for how the deep swamp creatures operate; and having watched the minutiae of how each element interacts with each additional element over multiple years; well, I just ain’t buying any of the popular talking points.

None of the chattering class punditry are taking a full accounting of the entire bigger picture within any of their arguments.   In short, they’re almost all getting it wrong, because: A.) their emphasis is on the wrong syllable; and, B.) they keep positioning the media narrative as accurate in part or in total.

The media lies in multiple ways.  Plausible deniability is a necessary ingredient in almost every media report. Those who operate within the DC deep state; those who scheme and benefit utilizing the manipulative outcomes of media, know exactly what to leak, when to leak, where to leak and who to leak, in order to present situations for their own interests.

Plausible Deniability.  EXAMPLE (notice the shift):

Now it becomes “May”?

The DC “Black Hats” are intensely skilled in the dark art of creating self-fulfilling prophecies.  Specifically because of this truism, almost all of the downstream reactions end up being pushed based on false assumptions.  It is challenging to inoculate yourself from the deceptions; but it is also necessary otherwise you are susceptible to their infection.

Former FBI Director James Comey (and his entire former team) is steeped in the dark arts of self-serving deception. It is a character trait necessary for life at the top of the food chain in the deep swamp.

As such, the fully developed Comey persona is necessarily devoid of any cognitive genetic composition which would frame compassion for anything, or anyone. Comey Inc. looks out for their own best interests. FIRST. FOREMOST. and ONLY.

As we previously discussed – The risk represented by Robert Mueller is not connected to or about anything surrounding the Russian Conspiracy Narrative; the legal risk is within ‘the leaking‘ of classified intelligence information to undermine the administration, the potentially illegal ‘unmasking‘.

If we avoid all the shiny things, ignore the shell game and reset our frame of reference to the only illegal activity currently known, the leaking; the main illegal activity visible is the illegal leaking of classified intelligence information.

Despite his earnest efforts, there is clear and mounting evidence that former FBI Director James Comey was the primary source of leaked information to the media. The latest Washington Post report is yet another example. The reporter for the Post article is one of a limited number (25) people whom James Comey follows on Twitter.

The risk to Comey Inc. from his media leaking continues to explain everything James Comey Inc. has recently done, said, advanced and CONTINUES TO ADVANCE.

If the evidence of James Comey being the source of multiple FBI leaks reaches the primary artery of investigative sunlight, who inside that investigative and prosecutorial decision making process becomes the risk? Answer that question and you discover the angle Comey is playing to cut off their ability to hold him accountable.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Asst AG Rod Rosenstein et al are the people Comey Inc. need to worry about, isolate and control.

It is not coincidental that Comey Inc. are setting up the future action of these participants to be politically motivated.

James Comey’s layer of innuendo against Jeff Sessions is an obvious strategy toward that end. If Comey can frame Sessions as retaliatory against him, he would position any legal action as retaliation.

Anyone who is buying into the story of James Comey leaking the memos to his friend, Daniel Richman, to get a special prosecutor appointed is falling for the shell game constructed entirely by James Comey. More than likely this is the explanation he has already given to Robert Mueller, hence his motive to state within his testimony.

It is important to remember that James Comey told congress he previously met with Robert Mueller to discuss his testimony prior to appearing before congress.

James Comey admitted to this specific “leaking”, because the justification to ‘get a special counsel appointed‘ is the explanatory storyline James Comey wants to present in public.

The alternate reason for leaking, the political motives, are much more damaging to him.

James Comey benefits two ways from his explanation. First, he justifies terrible behavior through a prism of his honor could find no other way (his status remains). Secondly, he sets up special counsel Mueller as fruit of a poisoned tree leading to voices calling for Mueller’s removal. Win/Win.

Comey Inc. also benefits from calls by Comey’s political opposition to eliminate Robert Mueller who is investigating the leaking.

Don’t fall for it.

James Comey is no longer in control of the investigative inputs or investigative outcomes.

Those whom Comey has injured, namely Attorney General Jeff Sessions and President Trump, are in positions where they can honestly and openly monitor the larger investigative inputs and follow the outcomes; they can also monitor the ongoing activity of Comey himself.

When someone of Comey’s inherent disposition is in a place like this, they initially seek to influence through direct contact (Comey talks to Mueller before testimony). However, when a professional distance is asserted, absent of an ability to engage in direct contact, the fall-back position for the manipulator is to influence the surrounding landscape (media an public opinion).

Never, ever, underestimate the severity or skill of a professional liar.

Never take anything Comey Inc. say at face value the way you would a disconnected observer.  Liars lie, it’s what they do.   Professional liars lie well, it’s what they’ve trained themselves to do.

If you accept the full hindsight of now identified FBI leaking, the greater likelihood is that Comey didn’t leak the memo to get Mueller appointed, he leaked the memo (May 16th) as an afterthought to cover for the leak mentioned by President Trump (May 12th), of a private conversation, that appeared in the New York Times on May 11th.

Remember, James Comey’s counter-intelligence investigation could have asked for a special counsel at any time. Asst. AG and Interim AG Sally Yates was part of that investigative leadership team. If Comey wanted a special counsel, Comey could have asked DOJ to appoint a special counsel any time he wanted.

He didn’t.

Comey didn’t request appointment of a special counsel because the special counsel would only prove there’s nothing there. However, fast forward to now and the real investigative risk is in being “a leaker”.

How quickly everyone forgets those admitted conversations by James Comey friend at Lawfare blog Benjamin Wittes:

“I did not know this particular fact, but it doesn’t surprise me at all. The principal source for the rest of this story is, well, me—specifically a long interview I gave to reporter Michael Schmidt on Friday about my conversations with FBI Director James Comey over the last few months, and particularly about one such conversation that took place on March 27 over lunch in Comey’s FBI office.” (link)

Benjamin Wittes admits that FBI Director James Comey specifically discussed with him the overall content of private communications with President Trump.

When you take the Wittes outline in conjuction with Comey’s admitted leaks to his other friend Daniel Richman, Comey is transparently in a position of being fingered as the source of multiple media leaks to NYT reporter Michael Schmidt.

That is the current risk for James Comey. The discovery that Comey was the leaker is the risk now represented by Robert Mueller and is inherent in Comey’s need to control the framework of his leaking activity.

James Comey was part of the political apparatus that constructed the “muh, vast Russian conspiracy” narrative and carefully nurtured it for over 8 months – even keeping congress in the dark on the entire matter. From James Comey perspective, the problem, the illegality, is now the leaking – NOT the original issue of the Russian election hacking narrative.

Remember, it was in FEBRUARY when the FBI (McCabe) went to President Trump’s Chief of Staff privately and told Reince Priebus there was no truth to media reports, based on FBI leaks, of FBI evidence showing Trump campaign officials involved with Russian officials regarding the 2016 election. It was all a complete nothingburger.

Details – On February 15th while discussing another issue FBI Assistant Director Andrew McCabe asked Reince for 5 minutes alone after the meeting. At the one-on-one meeting McCabe told Priebus the New York Times Russia and Trump campaign story was a “bunch of BS”.

Priebus asked McCabe if McCabe would be able to say that publicly and get the media off his back about a ridiculously false narrative. Asst. Director McCabe said he would check with his boss, FBI Director James Comey. Later, McCabe called back and said he couldn’t issue a statement about it.

reince-preibus-mccabe

Reince Priebus was simply asking for the FBI to give truthful information about the false reports to the public. The White House was asking Comey to deliver transparency.

Quote from the FBI to Priebus: “We’d love to help, but we can’t get into the position of making statements on every story”…

In hindsight, from current appearances, those February leaks (mentioned above) that drove the New York Times February report were actually leaks coming from James Comey.

Stop and think about it. McCabe was telling chief-of-staff Reince Priebus not to worry about a NYT report based on leaks coming (first, second or third-hand) from James Comey himself. Priebus asks McCabe for help, James Comey then tells McCabe the FBI cannot publicly refute the story which is based on Comey’s leaking.

If everyone associated with this line of inquiry can stop themselves from following the shell game constructed by Comey, and avoid the distractions he is laying down (Lynch), they’ll eventually find a way to point this out.

    The dems are just such scum. Before leaving office, Obama used his intel. apparatus to spread rumors about the incoming President and his team. Mere days before leaving office, rules were changed to allow a much much wider dissemination of this phony intel, insuring leaks, etc. Media, with full involvement and foreknowledge, played along. They created this whole thing out of what, at the end, will amount to proof that some Russian posted an unflattering of HRC falling down.
    (BTW, Russian involvement wouldn’t be illegal, nor would colluding with them, but that’s beside the point).

    In other words, Obama intentionally, willfully, and premeditatedly sabotaged the US government’s ability to fully do business all for political payback. He did this by manipulating and abusing some very sacred powers bestowed upon him by virtue of his position. He’s scum.

    If we thought the Clinton creeps were bad for removing the “B’s” from all the typewriters before Bush took office, look at what Obama and his bunch did, and are doing to this day. Again, media fully on board.

    I think that should a dem. win 8 years from now, the precedent has been set for the Trump administration to immediately open a counterintelligence investigation against whoever that jerk is, leak like heck. Let him/her take office while “under investigation”. Demand special counsel–in fact appoint one BEFORE leaving office and dare them to fire him. Heck, why wait until the election? Upon intel. and/or criminal probes on every single dem running for the nomination, and have at it. The dems want full third-world politics, they may get it.

      It doesn’t matter what the source of any info is, unfortunately communist sloths don’t have the ability of discertion so it falls simply on what a person ‘wants’ to believe. I hear allegedly intelligent people say the most incredulous things with respect to President Trump. At least when we called Barry an anti-American muslim and fake president we were telling the truth.

    “Secondly, he sets up special counsel Mueller as fruit of a poisoned tree leading to voices calling for Mueller’s removal.”

    It’s worth noting that he didn’t pick Mueller. Plus, when Mueller was picked and heard his longtime close associate was wanting to testify and to meet with him directly, why didn’t he say no, given the potential for the same type of appearance of impropriety that is contended Comey sought in the one-on-one meetings with the president?

    It’s quite apparent that leaker Comey has his own agenda, and is working toward that end. But in angling for someone to be appointed to investigate, the administration had latitude as to who would head it, especially as it is assumed that it knew or strongly suspected that Comey was a leaker. That Mueller created a mess from the get-go by privately interviewing someone who can be considered a crony works to unfitness, and thus works to bolster the calls for him to be relieved.

    I can be as focused as possible, but the same snare that Comey tried to set for the president looks to have been waltzed into by Mueller. Any loss of focus on Comey’s tainted credibility stems from that in large part,

    THE GOAL IS TO DRAIN THE SWAMP AND EXPOSE THE UNIPARTY, NOT PREVENT IMPEACHMENT. Too many foot soldiers here and not enough captains and generals. Plenty of trolls too, and they are getting smarter. There will be MASSIVE opportunities in impeachment hearings, a show the likes the world has never seen. Trump is daring them to bring it on. Warfare is deception.

      I am open to the logic that the Special Counsel development was actually good and that Mueller (even his hiring of dem attorneys) is a postive. But trying to suggest that impeachment hearings and possible a trial in the Senate is something we should appreciate seems questionable. It could work out well – but why would anyone willingly enter that scenario? I am sure Trump would make the most out of such a situation, but inviting it is another matter.

  7. President Trump is LEVERAGING the “LEAK” that the Special Counsel is now investigating him for Obstruction of Justice:

    Potential scenarios that are not mutually exclusive:

    • Rosenstein recuses himself or resigns, leaving Assistant Attorney General Brand to direct the Special Counsel – eliminating the open-ended scope of the investigation by confining the it to EVIDENCE of SPECIFIC CRIMES related to the 2016 Election and/or explicitly identifying OTHER SPECIFIED CRIMES to investigate.

    • Mueller resigns, opening options to terminate the Special Counsel charter for LACK of EVIDENCE of a SPECIFIED CRIME to investigate.

    • The National Security Counsel initiates a counter-intelligence investigation relating to countries that have breached America’s cybersecurity, including China, Russia, Iran and North Korea.

    • Another Special Counsel is appointed to investigate crimes committed by Hillary and the Obama Administration.

    • The New York Times admits that it fabricated stories to trigger the Special Counsel and/or assert it was investigating President Trump for Obstruction of Justice, leading to PROSECUTION of the NYT for OBSTRUCTION of JUSTICE by interfering with the Special Counsel investigation.

      I appreciate your scenarios – particularly the last one involving the NYT. I would suggest, however, expanding that scenario to include additional media outlets and how they actively colluded with others (political party, elected officials, government employees, etc).

It seems to me that Çomey is trying to get Trump to fire Mueller ìn order țo create so much chaos that Trump will be embroiled in ímpeachment and that Comey will be able to walk away unscathed and lauded as a hero. Am in right?
