Revelations of Comey Wiretapping Manafort May Explain “Uncomfortable” March 20th Congressional Answer…

Knowing that former Campaign Manager Paul Manafort was wiretapped by the Obama Administration via the FBI, James Comey, let’s take another look at Comey’s testimony.

New York Representative Elise Stefanik begins her March 20th, 2017, questioning 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”?

Watch an extremely uncomfortable Director James Comey 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 sunlight within the 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.

From June 2016 through March 2017 the FBI was operating without any congressional oversight over this counter-intelligence activity.  Why?

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.  James Clapper is now a media contributor  WATCH:

Chuck TODD: Yeah, I was just going to say, if the F.B.I., for instance, had a FISA court order of some sort for a surveillance, would that be information you would know or not know?

James CLAPPER:  Yes.

TODD:  You would be told this?

CLAPPER:  I would know that.

TODD:  If there was a FISA court order–

CLAPPER:  Yes.

TODD:  –on something like this.

CLAPPER:  Something like this, absolutely.

TODD:  And at this point, you can’t confirm or deny whether that exists?

CLAPPER:  I can deny it.

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 weaponizing intelligence.  Director 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 to FBI Director James Comey 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 hidden from congressional oversight. Comey was a participant in using the FBI for intelligence gathering for political purposes.

As a direct consequence of this mid-thought-stream Comey obfuscation, it is increasingly clear FBI 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 FBI Director James 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?

♦ From Director James Comey’s own admission to congress  he intentionally withheld congressional notification of a counter-intelligence investigation that began in July of 2016.

Within that March 20th testimony to explain why he intentionally avoided congressional oversight, Comey cited the recommendation of Bill Priestap, Asst. Director of Counter Intelligence.

Bill Priestap is married to Sabina Menshell a self-employed “consultant” with a history of donations to Democrat candidates, specifically to Hillary Clinton.

According to the CNN report the wiretapping and surveillance of Paul Manafort started sometime in 2014 and then was discontinued after nothing of criminal value or significance was gained.  [NOTE: FISA warrants must be updated in 90 day increments; continued surveillance involving U.S. persons must be justified; if nothing exists the court orders the surveillance to cease the warrant is no longer valid.]  However, according to the same leaked source reporting from CNN the wiretapping began again in 2016.

The July/August 2016 time frame is interesting because that coincides with the surfacing of the ridiculous opposition research “Steele Dossier” on Presidential Candidate Donald Trump. Further recently revealed information about the “steele dossier”, interestingly surrounds the James Comey FBI paying for the information contained therein.

Sometime in June 2016 the James Comey FBI was denied a FISA warrant by the court (rarely done) and the general appearance is that Comey was interested in surveillance of the Trump campaign.  According to New York Times, and The Guardian candidate Trump was named within that denied FISA application. Note Comey has never denied this allegation.

We know the Steele Dossier was used by the FBI to justify a FISA warrant, we just didn’t know who it was targeted toward. –LINK–  We also know in congressional testimony from July 27th of this year, William Browder, CEO of Hermitage Capital, testified about the “Foreign Agents Registration Act” (FARA).

During Mr. Browder’s testimony the origin of the Fusion GPS ‘Russian Dossier’ was discussed.  Browder stated the Russian government actually paid Fusion GPS to create the Steele propaganda dossier on candidate Donald Trump.  That same dossier was used by the FBI in June/July 2016 to generate the FISA surveillance warrants against the Trump campaign. WATCH:

Yes, that actually means FBI Director James Comey was using propaganda commissioned by Russia, funded in part by the FBI, to attack Trump, as the framework to launch his FBI investigation into candidate Donald Trump and Russian collusion.

Expanding the reality from that testimony.  This means the Russian collusion narrative the U.S. media has been running with for a year to attack Trump, was actually factual collusion between Russia and the the U.S. FBI, via James Comey.

We also know the actual surveillance within these FISA warrants was carried out by the NSA. Additionally we know that NSA head Admiral Mike Rogers met with President-elect Donald Trump on Thursday November 17th without notifying ODNI James Clapper. The day after Admiral Rogers met with President-elect Trump, the entire transition team left Trump Tower and moved their work to New Jersey.

June 2016: FISA request. The Obama administration files a request with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) to monitor communications involving Donald Trump and several advisers. The request, uncharacteristically, is denied.

October 2016: FISA request. The Obama administration submits a new, narrow request to the FISA court, now focused on a computer server in Trump Tower suspected of links to Russian banks. No evidence is found — but the wiretaps continue, ostensibly for national security reasons, Andrew McCarthy at National Review later notes. The Obama administration is now monitoring an opposing presidential campaign using the high-tech surveillance powers of the federal intelligence services.

On Tuesday November 8th, 2016 the election was held.  Results announced Wednesday November 9th, 2016.

NSA Director Rogers participates in session at Intelligence and National Security Summit in WashingtonOn Thursday November 17th, 2016, NSA Director Mike Rogers traveled to New York and met with President-Elect Donald Trump.

On Friday November 18th The Washington Post reported on a recommendation in “October” that Mike Rogers be removed from his NSA position:

The heads of the Pentagon and the nation’s intelligence community have recommended to President Obama that the director of the National Security Agency, Adm. Michael S. Rogers, be removed.

The recommendation, delivered to the White House last month, was made by Defense Secretary Ashton B. Carter and Director of National Intelligence James R. Clapper Jr., according to several U.S. officials familiar with the matter.

[…]  In a move apparently unprecedented for a military officer, Rogers, without notifying superiors, traveled to New York to meet with Trump on Thursday at Trump Tower. That caused consternation at senior levels of the administration, according to the officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss internal personnel matters. (link)

Remember, historically The Washington Post is the preferred outlet for the CIA and Intelligence Community within Deep State to dump their “leaks” and stories.  The State Department “leaks” to CNN for the same purposes.

On Saturday November 19th Reuters reported on the WaPo Story and additional pressure by Defense Secretary Ash Carter and DNI James Clapper to fire Mike Rogers.

[…]  The Washington Post reported that a decision by Rogers to travel to New York to meet with Trump on Thursday without notifying superiors caused consternation at senior levels of the administration, but the recommendation to remove him predated his visit.  (link)

  1. The Intelligence Community -at the direction of President Obama- made a request to a FISA court for the NSA to spy on Donald Trump in June 2016.  It was denied.
  2. In October the Intelligence Community (NSA) -at the direction of President Obama- made a second request to the FISA court for the NSA to spy on Donald Trump.  It was approved.
  3. At around the same time (October), as the second request to FISA, (Def Sec) Ash Carter and (DNI) James Clapper tell President Obama to dump NSA Director Mike Rogers.
  4. A week after the election, Mike Rogers makes a trip to Trump Tower without telling his superior, James Clapper; which brings about new calls (November media leaks to WaPo) for President Obama to dump Mike Rogers.

Occam’s Razor.  NSA Director Admiral Mike Rogers didn’t want to participate in the spying scheme (Clapper, Brennan, Etc.), which was the baseline for President Obama’s post presidency efforts to undermine Donald Trump and keep Trump from digging into the Obama labyrinth underlying his remaining loyalists.  After the October spying operation went into effect, Rogers unknown loyalty was a risk to the Obama objective. Ten  Days after the election Rogers travels to President-Elect Trump without notifying those who were involved in the intel scheme.

Did NSA Director Mike Rogers wait for a SCIF (Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility) to be set up in Trump Tower, and then notify the President-elect he was being monitored by President Obama?

Admiral Mike Rogers still has his job as head of the NSA.

      The criminals in the government had better start thinking about what We the People are going to do to them.

      It can’t happen soon enough.

      Noah Webster said, “The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword, because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops.”

      .

      “And what country can preserve its liberties, if its rulers are not warned from time to time, that this people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. … The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.” — Thomas Jefferson

      .

      In Federalist Paper No. 28, Alexander Hamilton said, “If the representatives of the people betray their constituents, there is no recourse left but in the exertion of that original right of self-defense which is paramount to all forms of positive government.”

      .

      Richard Henry Lee said, “To preserve liberty it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them.

      “This country, with its institutions, belongs to the people who inhabit it. Whenever they shall grow weary of the existing Government, they can exercise their constitutional right of amending it, or their revolutionary right to dismember or overthrow it.”

      Declaration of Independence:

      “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

      That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,

      That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.”
      ………………………..

      .

      When the time comes, when this wholly corrupt government is destroyed and Constitutional order is restored, the new capitol of the United States of America should be located in SMACKDAB USA.

      Not anywhere near the corruption and degeneracy that is inherent in densely populated coastal cities the world over.

      The government of the People should have its capitol in the heartland, not in Sodom & Gomorrah.

      When Washington D.C. was made the capitol, it was much more ‘centrally located’ in relation to the the rest of the nation than it is today.

      That should be corrected.

    In addition to revealing all of the obvious lawlessness, it would be very helpful to begin articulating the various charges which would be brought against anyone committing such lawlessness.

    This will help to convey the gravity and severity of the lawlessness to the public, and have the added benefit of making it harder for reluctant prosecutors to bury their heads in the sand.

    It is one thing to say “Look at what he did, we all KNOW that was incredibly wrong, even if we don’t know what the actual charges and penalties would be!”.

    It is quite another thing to say “Look at what he did, that is willful abuse of power with malice aforethought in the attempt to undermine the incoming president of the United States; it is Sedition and Treason and carries with it a minium sentence of 25 years in a federal penitentiary up to the death penalty.”

    We spend a lot of time learning about all the wrongdoing.

    Make it real.

    We need to know what actual laws are being broken, and the penalties for breaking those laws.

    Without that, all we can do when fighting the opposition (on other forums) is a lot of finger-pointing and finger-wagging.

    With ammunition (specific laws being broken) and specific penalties (25 years to life, death penalty), it suddenly becomes much more real, and much harder for the ‘powers that be‘ ‘cowards that be‘ to dismiss.

        Problem is that most of DC hates Trump (according to what I heard Hannity say yesterday) and they all want someone, anyone, to get rid of him so they can resume pleasing their lobbyists.

      YES!!! This is what is missing and it is darn hard to find those actual laws.</b.

      For example in the “No prosecution of Lois Lerner.” I went looking for the actual laws she broke and came up with NOTHING!!!</b. All I found was an indication there was a law holding Corporate officers accountable*** BUT even in the case of corporate officers it has to be proved that the officer was aware of the actions and ORDERED those actions.

      Individual Accountability for Corporate Wrongdoing — memo 2-1 pdf”>
      “[…]One of the most effective ways to combat corporate misconduct is by seeking accountability from the individuals who perpetrated the wrongdoing. Such accountability is important for several reasons: it deters future illegal activity, it incentivizes changes in corporate behavior, it ensures that the proper parties are held responsible for their actions, and it promotes the public’s confidence in our justice system.

      There are, however, many substantial challenges unique to pursuing individuals for corporate misdeeds. In large corporations, where responsibility can be diffuse and decisions are made at various levels, it can be difficult to determine if someone possessed the knowledge and criminal intent necessary to establish their guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. This is particularly true when determining the culpability of high-level executives, who may be insulated from the day-to-day activity in which the misconduct occurs. As a result, investigators often must reconstruct what happened based on a painstaking review of corporate documents, which can number in the millions, and which may be difficult to collect due to legal restrictions.[…]”
      ……

      *** I never did find the actual law covering corporate officials, much less a law that was applicable to government officials.

      If there is such a law the stumbling block in the Lois Lerner case is going to be the same:
      “[…] where responsibility can be diffuse and decisions are made at various levels, it can be difficult to determine if someone possessed the knowledge and criminal intent necessary to establish their guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.[…]”

      This is especially true since Lerner’s laptop was destroyed and records of who had access to her office at the time of the destruction were also destroyed. 😡

              ________________

              Good question.

              I’m not sure Mueller has even a passing acquaintance with ‘truth’ at this point in his life. I would like to think that he does. I would like to think a lot of things.

              I remember when Mueller was first appointed, and someone here at CTH gave a glowing account of Mueller’s personal biography. It seems that Mueller is a genuine war hero and served his country with great distinction.

              A long time ago.

              It’s hard to reconcile that Mueller with the guy who only hires Clinton cronies and NeverTrump traitors to work on his investigative team, a team which positively knows that the entire premise for their investigation is a fraud.

              Is it possible that Mueller hired all these Clinton cronies and NeverTrump traitors in order to deprive Sick Hillary of their services (due to conflict of interest) when Mueller springs a surprise indictment of Crooked Hillary at the end of his investigation?

              That’s the best spin on it I can come up with.

              Anything’s possible, it’s even possible that A.G. Sessions has been conducting secret grand juries all over the country since January and not a single leak about any of it has occurred… but I’m not holding my breath on either count.

              Everybody said Comey was a ‘straight arrow’ too. I remember Judge Jeanine Pirro practically endorsed him for sainthood at one point in the early going… now, not so much… she’s not his biggest fan anymore, lol!

              So what people think they know about someone’s history does not seem to be indicative of future performance, at least when it comes to the Swamp and those who venture into it.

              And this is part of what has me worried about A.G. Sessions. Just before the August recess, the Republi-Con majority made a rule change to prevent DJT — the president of their own party — from making recess appointments while Congress was out of town plotting his destruction.

              Unanimous Republi-Con consent was required. Any ONE Republi-Con Senator could have objected and the rule change would have failed, and DJT (the Republi-Con’s own party president…) would have been able to fill out his administration by recess appointments — recess appointments which the Republi-Con majority has slow-rolled and blocked since January.

              So there is not one good man (or woman) in the Senate. Not a single one; they are all corrupt. That ‘unanimous consent’ by the Republi-Con Majority to block the Republican president of the United States was the definitive moment which proved it beyond a shadow of a doubt.

              And A.G. Sessions came from that same corrupt Senate.

              Would he have stopped the Republi-Con Senate from blocking DJT’s ability to make recess appointments by being the ONE member of the Republi-Con Senate who objected, preventing the rule change? Was Sessions the only incorruptible member of that wholly corrupt body? After being a member of that same corrupt body for 20 years?

              It’s possible.

              I sure hope so.

              But I can’t hold my breath any longer. Nine months is about my limit.

      In USA v. Muhtorov, Jamshid, et al., the defendant was notified that the government intended to introduce evidence obtained via a FISA warrant at his trial

            Or better yet, have three Trusts, so that one is entirely hidden and private; one is ‘public’ to the extent that it is used to conduct your business and affairs; and one overlaps both in the middle, effectively hiding the ‘private’ while facilitating transfers between the private and the public.

      Yes, and it appears that the case is going to be self-made, that so much incontrovertible evidence will have been made public, that the ‘case’ will already be made the ‘conviction’ guaranteed before the DOJ will even look at it.

      The popular expression is that a competent D.A. can indict a ham sandwich, i.e., they can indict anybody for anything.

      But by the time all the evidence comes out about the Clintons and the Hussein Administration, a “ham sandwich” could convict them both.

      And the more the evidence shows, the more difficult it becomes for the wholly corrupt DOJ and FBI to look the other way.

      When even a tag-team of Charlie Brown and Chief Inspector Clouseau could put these scofflaws away forever, what’s Session’s and Wray’s excuse going to be?

      The buck never got here?

      The dog ate my homework?

      The point is approaching where they will look as corrupt as the criminals if they don’t prosecute AND convict.

          Only because we are rapidly approaching a point of maximum comedy, total farce and blatant disregard for the law that is so vast, it cannot withstand the light of day.

          I really don’t care at all about the Swamp’s problems, or about an A.G.’s reluctance to prosecute his former fellow Swampers. If the A.G. won’t do his job, then throw him in with the other Swampers and prosecute his sorry backside too.

          All that Christopher Wray and Sessions are doing at the moment is showing the whole world that they are as dirty as the people they are responsible for prosecuting.

          Everybody likes to hold out hope for ‘secret’ investigations, and I do too, but I can’t even remember the last ‘secret’ investigation, or the point for one in the first place. The Hussein administration didn’t conduct ‘secret’ investigations, if they were investigating someone, they wanted the whole world to know it, it was a tool of intimidation, pressure and leverage, and a weapon in the media narrative.

          And considering the Niagara Falls of leaks coming from all of the hundreds (thousands?) of Hussein holdovers who actively sabotage the administration every day, what are the chances that ANY investigation conducted by the corrupt FBI or the corrupt DOJ would actually stay secret?

          All of this is coming to a head.

          If the DOJ announces that Sick Crooked Hillary and the Hussein and his administration will not be indicted or prosecuted, then Trump has about 24 hours to fire Sessions and appoint an interim head of the DOJ who will prosecute. And he can fire 10 in a row if he has to, until he finds ONE MAN in the entire festering wasteland of our pathetic government who will ENFORCE THE RULE OF LAW.

          Because if he doesn’t, then Donald Trump’s own presidency and legacy will bear that stain in posterity. It’s not just Hussein and Clinton’s repulsive lives at stake, it is the example that will be set and learned by every criminal who follows them that they can break the law at will, that if you reach the level of seeking the WH, you are above the law.

          Worse, if the God-hating, America-hating, Constitution-hating Left is allowed to get away with this nearly inconceivable abuse of power, We the People will never have a free and fair election again, because the globalists will never make the mistakes they made a second time. Not when trillions of dollars are at stake.

          So if you let Hussen and Clinton walk, you seal the fate and the future of America.

          And Donald Trump will be guilty of letting that happen when he could have saved the country.

          I’m positive he doesn’t want that to happen.

          And I am more than just reasonably confident that he won’t allow it to happen.

          So we’ll see.

          If Hussein and the Clintons are allowed to walk free, after what they have done, then all bets are off. We are no longer a nation of law, and we had all better start acting accordingly.

            The Patient needs to rebuild her strength. To create inumerable correctly targeted anti-bodies. To be fully and thoroughly examined, the extent of the vicious malignacies’ tendrils traced and mapped out.

            The Medical Team needs the space/time to discuss their evaluations and coordinate their treatment strategies and to gather their resources.

            To prepare to effect a cure that has never been attempted on a terminally diagnosed patient with extensive malignacies and many latent maladies compounding the risk of their every move.

            They must be prepared for every possible turn of events as they have only a single shot at this surgery, with a short timetable. All within the most unsterile of environments and unstable security.

            Oh, and bad actors have seething masses at their beck and call and are prepared to unleash them should they be at risk of losing the high-stakes bet they have placed on the patient’s demise.

            PDJT is Magnificent, truly A Great Man, but he is not invincible, not immortal, not all-powerful; and he has highly cherished, highly vulnerable, hostages to fortune.

            An uncivil war would be certain to result in a kill ratio of 100:1, not in the Left’s favor, but the Patient could well expire in such circumstances.

            I’m sure our Lion is eager for the hunt, but his attack must succeed quickly and irrevokeably in order to ensure the survival of his Pride.

        From a CNN article

        “The period mentioned in the search warrant covers much of the decade that Manafort worked as a consultant for Ukraine’s former ruling party. It’s that work, which extended beyond the ouster of the president, Viktor Yanukovych, amid street protests in 2014, that prompted the FBI’s interest in Manafort. Yanukovych’s Party of Regions was accused of corruption and the FBI sought to learn whether the American consultants hired by the Ukrainian party, which also included Mercury LLC and the Podesta Group, were involved. The Justice Department probe also looked into whether the US firms violated the federal law that requires registration under the Foreign Agents Registration Act.

        All three firms earlier this year filed retroactive registrations with the Justice Department.”

    He isn’t a backslapping BS-itter as he said but by gosh he is good at being a sneaky liar. Will there be any justice? It is quite a shock to see the degree to which both anti-Trumpism and Obama-was-a-great-guyism is reflexive, unquestioned and mainstream.

    Still, news cycles can change people’s minds, it took 30-50 years of utterly lies to get people to believe the nonsense they do now. And I do think optimistically that circumspect truths would be rather more quickly embraced if it were ever presented by the media. Fingers crossed.

      I’ve always suspected Obama was behind the Blago situation. The daughter going to Obama as if Obama owed her father something (for his silence)confirmed that for me.

    Past time to shutter the 702 FISA Court. “Unconstitutional”, should suffice. “National Security”, you say? Nope, not even close.

    No American Citizen’s name should ever have been permitted in FISA Court. (4th Amendment Right to Due Process) Want a warrant? Fine. Find a Judge, the old-fashion way. “Pitter-pat”, goes your feet! “Ring-ring”, goes the tone!

    As National Security? FAIL. One terror attack, is too many. “FAIL”; proven. Actual “numbers” backs this – failed as an viable N.S. apperatus. The loophole on the secretive court ends now.

    FISA Court hasn’t kept Americans safe from terrorists or from government tyranny on the American People. It HAS kept corrupted public servants, villainous government agents, SAFE. Shutter the FISA Court, repeal it. I’ll say, “Thank You”, later. Waiting & watching.

    (This is a rough draft corresponding with my Congressmen tomorrow.)

      I tend to agree with you Eric. It appears to me that Council Muller and his highly paid team of Democrat lawyers who financially supported the Obama/Clinton administration are behaving like Soviet styled prosecutors. I am repulsed by their actions towards Paul Manafort, breaking into his home in the dead of night while he and his wife were in bed.
      In my opinion their actions are un-American.
      On another topic, Fox TV now helmed by the Murdock sons have dumped Meghan McCain.
      Liability perhaps?

    This is what is called, CYA mode. (Cover Your A**)

    Read, Senator McCain’s,10 page, UK Court deposition:

    http://www.mcclatchydc.com/news/nation-world/national/article160622854.html

    (Interesting note in deposition: McCain’s “contract” goes back to 2010)

    Then, watch this video of Senator McCain questioning Comey. Watch McCain’s: body language, facial expressions & listen to his breathing.

    (Shear fear & full of panic, while McCain tries to maintain control of himself. McCain wants to know if he is under investigation for the Dossier he funded. (Understand, there were 16 memmoranda created by Steele, funded by many players) (8:00+ minutes)

    Oct 2016: “wiretaps continue, ostensibly for national security reasons”
    They were monitoring Manafort’s cell, not his landline, which is how PE/Pres Trump was caught up in the monitoring. Remember all the vehement denials of not wiretapping, or monitoring, Trump Tower? Since Manafort had been monitored in 2014, most likely due to Manafort’s involvement on the Russian side of the Ukraine debacle, it would make more sense to continue monitoring Manafort.

    I know you all believe Russia was behind the Steele Dossier, and that is a valid and perfectly reasonable conclusion.
    However. There is another reasonable explanation. Clinton, with the assistance of the Bush people, had begun the attacks on Trump in 2015, including the Steele Dossier. As the primaries progressed, Obama, perhaps in collusion with Clinton, perhaps not, continued his own subterfuge on Trump. Obama had the ability to use the national security apparatus which, by this time, was something at which Obama was quite adept.

    The intention of both camps, Clinton and Obama, was to involve Russia with Trump and discredit both Russia and Trump.

    Browder is a red-herring useful id10t, most likely used by Clinton/Obama to further implicate Russia/Trump. Recall that Clinton’s State Dept translator was also at the lobbyist meeting with Don Jr. The Russian lobbyist most likely was sent by the Russian gas company and/or the Russian hedge fund company.

    The “official” (read WaPo, NPR) story was that Adm Rogers went to Trump Tower in Nov 2016 for a job interview with PE Trump, which is a perfectly reasonably explanation. (The WaPo-NPR rumor was that Adm Rogers wanted the DNI job. Logic dictates Adm Rogers wanted Cyber Command.) What else transpired during that meeting remains in the black box room (SCIF). Obama, being the weenie that he is, truly believed that his (Obama’s) own magnificent intelligence would out-maneuver both Pres Trump and Adm Rogers and succeed. Dummy.

    Adm Rogers got Cyber Command.

    I remember just before Comey’s last public testimony, multiple pundits speculated about how Comey would describe one on one encounters with Trump. They all noted Trump wouldn’t fare well in a he said he said versus straight arrow, copious note taker Comey.

    Here we go again. I guess the guy literally burned out his lifetime supply of testosterone forming that buddy brigade with Mueller resisting the plans of malevolent conservatives over a decade ago.

    Now he just follows the orders of his liberal overseers.

    “Yeah, I’ll call it a matter”

    “I’ve had the exoneration report in the can for a month, but I’m not a prosecutor. It’s far from protocol and procedure.”

    “It was bad enough that I had to be the chef to cook this crap, now you’re telling me I have to be the waiter and serve it at the press conference. That will lead to me playing a third role as assistant manager when people on both sides complain that what they were served was rancid and I insist that we reverentially followed the recipe and used the best available ingredients.”

    “I didn’t intend for that to sound like complaining, just rehearsing. It took me a while to train myself to refer to it as a matter. I’ve got to train myself into thinking it’s extreme carelessness and not gross negligence. I used to never be able to bend and spin something so obvious. With each passing day serving in the Obama administration, those skills developed to the point its almost second nature.”

      And according to high ranking FBI sources, the Bureau played a definitive role in plotting this sweeping privacy breach. But the FBI had much help from the NSA, CIA, the Office of of the Director of National Intelligence, Treasury financial crimes division under DHS, and the Justice Department, federal law enforcement sources confirmed.

      The Deep State caretakers involved are familiar names: James Comey (FBI), John Brennan (CIA), James Clapper (ODNI), Loretta Lynch (DOJ), Jeh Johnson (DHS), Admiral Michael Rogers (NSA). And then-director of GCHQ Robert Hannigan who has since resigned from the esteemed British spy agency.
