“Investigating the Cover-up” – Devin Nunes Subpoenas David Kramer…

Byron York is reporting today that House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes has issued a subpoena to David Kramer (pictured left), the aid to John McCain who was used as an arms-length go-between -traveling to Surrey, England- to meet with Christopher Steele and retrieve the Steele “Russian Dossier” in November 2016.

Kramer was not given the dossier in England; rather he was briefed in England, by Steele, and later given the dossier by Glenn Simpson (Fusion GPS) in the U.S.

A back-story timeline refresher:

Dossier author Christopher Steele reached out to Sir Andrew Wood, Britain’s former Ambassador to Russia (’95-’00) in August 2016; one month after the FBI counterintelligence operation on Candidate Trump began (July ’16).

Andrew Wood was the intelligence liaison Mr. Steele utilized in an effort to give his Russian Dossier increased credibility AFTER the FBI began using it.  In essence the group around the dossier as constructed, saw how their trail was clearly political and they wanted to import/create an illusion of non-partisan political affiliation for the dossier.

Mr. Wood reaching out to Senator John McCain would give the sketchy Russian Dossier some increased credibility.

In November 2016 (post election) Andrew Wood traveled to the 2017 Halifax International Security Forum in Nova Scotia, Canada, where he met up with Senator John McCain.

Traveling with Senator McCain was a former State Dept. and current McCain Institute staffer, David J. Kramer.   [The McCain institute is essentially a political money laundering operation where foreign governments send money to Senator John McCain as a workaround due to U.S. laws prohibiting politicians accepting payment for services to foreign governments – similar to the Clinton Foundation.  This is how McCain pays for his multimillion Arizona mansion and indulgent lifestyle.]

Andrew Wood, John McCain and David J Kramer attended the Canadian conference where Wood informed McCain about the Russian Dossier on Donald Trump.

According to reporting from Catherine Herridge: ‘British court records state McCain then ordered Kramer to get a personal briefing from Steele in Surrey, just outside of London, and then return to Washington, D.C., where Fusion GPS (Glenn Simpson) would provide McCain with hard copies.’ 

That led to January 2017 when Senator McCain officially gave the dossier to the FBI.  However, the FBI already had its own copy from Christopher Steele which was used in September and October 2016 as evidence in the FBI’s FISA application to justify  wiretapping (spying on) Donald Trump.

WASHINGTON DC – House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes has issued a subpoena to David Kramer, a former State Department official who, in late November 2016, traveled to London to receive a briefing and a copy of the Trump dossier from its author, former British spy Christopher Steele. Kramer then returned to the U.S. to give the document to Sen. John McCain.

Kramer is a senior fellow at the McCain Institute for International Leadership at Arizona State University.

McCain later took a copy of the dossier to the FBI’s then-director, James Comey. But the FBI already had the document; Steele himself gave the dossier to the bureau in installments, reportedly beginning in early July 2016.

McCain, recovering in Arizona from treatments for cancer, has long refused to detail his actions regarding the dossier. For his part, Kramer was interviewed by the House Intelligence Committee on Dec. 19. The new subpoena stems from statements Kramer made in that interview.

In the session, Kramer told House investigators that he knew the identities of the Russian sources for the allegations in Steele’s dossier. But when investigators pressed Kramer to reveal those names, he declined to do so.

Now, he is under subpoena. The subpoena, issued Wednesday afternoon, directs Kramer to appear again before House investigators on Jan. 11.  (read more)

ps.  I need some help.  The rabbit hole is very deep.  Amid the “Trump Operation” discoveries, almost all emphasis has been on the FBI side of the equation.  Few people are paying attention to the DOJ side.

Here’s how you can help.  I need to figure out who was involved on the DOJ side.  In order to do that we need to find the DOJ officials who were inside the National Security Division at the time all of this was going down.  2016 through 2017.

Can you help me fill in the names?

Department of Justice NSD Link HERE

We need to discover, then research and timeline, who was in position C, D, E, F  in the leadership ranks of the DOJ National Security Division in 2016.

Any help is appreciated.

This research is valuable because it could entrap Sally Yates.

I know she is involved as a co-conspirator because of the specific manner in which she delivered testimony.  However, I’m not sure who (how vast) was the DOJ network who worked with her on the scheme.

    Nice work and I hope the IC has been looking through the entire cabals texts and emails..

    Another thought on Kramer

    Just who is this Kramer fellow? Here’s his Wiki page (clearly written by Kramer himself)


    He’s a lifelong lefty swamp dweller with a background in Russian and human rights affairs. He left the State Dept. in 2009 for his current job at the McCain Inst. at Arizona State.

    But just why was Kramer, of all people sent to London to meet with Steele, and on whose initiative? On McCain’s?

    Is he connected to Fusion GPS or the Ohrs? And why would he make the bombshell claim to know the identities of the Russian sources of the dossier when testifying before the House Intelligence Committee and then refuse to actually name names?

    Just a hunch, but I wonder if Mr. Kramer had a hand in fabricating the dossier?

    Which begs the question: Was McCain involved in fabricating the dossier?

      Sundance’s article (and York’s) explains Kramer. You’d have to ask McCain why he sent Kramer to Russia, but considering his relationship to McCain.org it would seem to be like Hillary sending John Podesta. His background in Russian affairs would enhance his CV for that task.

      Remember that at the same meeting where McCain et al were given the dossier the same FBi translator (accompanied the Russian lawyer with Don Jr meeting) was at the same conference with McCain. I think he was definitely one of the sources of the dossier..

      I honestly believe that Fusion GPS reached out to the British Promoter to get him to make contact with the Trumps wittingly or unwrittingly. Remember two of the so-called Russian spies in the room with the Lawyer chick were an FBI Translator and a State Department Employee ( get this till October 2016) working for Fusion GPS.. Chuck Ross from the Daily Caller wrote about them months back.

      No asks the most obvious why are the Russian spies so connected to Fushion GPS and the Democrats for years, wondering the halls of congress and doing lobbying and it is no big deal, hell they worked in government yet no one cared.

      Alex, McCain has taken money from Soros to destroy Trump and America, so he is a saboteur of the first water. Traveling to deal with criminal acts, dissing Trump, voting against anything that Trump supports, etc. Hopefully, he will be replaced by a real republican asap as it appears his leaving Congress to “go home” may hopefully mean he is on the verge of meeting God and going where all traitors go.

    “Mr. Denton on Doomsday

    “Mr. Denton on Doomsday” is episode three of the American television anthology series The Twilight Zone. It originally aired on October 16, 1959 on CBS. This is the first Twilight Zone episode to be rerun.

    Opening narration[edit]

    Portrait of a town drunk named Al Denton. This is a man who’s begun his dying early—a long, agonizing route through a maze of bottles. Al Denton, who would probably give an arm or a leg or a part of his soul to have another chance, to be able to rise up and shake the dirt from his body and the bad dreams that infest his consciousness. In the parlance of the times, this is a peddler, a rather fanciful-looking little man in a black frock coat. [A revolver mysteriously appears on the ground next to Denton] And this is the third principal character of our story. Its function: perhaps to give Mr. Al Denton his second chance.

    Al Denton was once known as the quickest draw in town, but riddled with increasing guilt over the losers in his gun duels (one of whom was a teenage boy), he became an alcoholic wreck and the laughing stock of the community. A mysterious salesman named Henry J. Fate causes Denton to inexplicably regain his expert shooting touch and once again inspire the respect and awe of the townsfolk, which Denton explains will only cause reputation-hungry gunslingers from miles around to seek him out and, inevitably, kill him. He cleans himself up and goes sober but only, he says, so as to die with dignity. Just as Denton predicted, soon enough a challenge is delivered which Denton dare not refuse.
    The still-weary and not-so-sure-handed Denton practices in the desert for his suicidal duel, but he misses his targets miserably and concludes that he must skip town. As he packs his things and tries to flee under the cover of night, he strikes up a conversation with Fate, who seems to know things about Denton and offers him a way out. Fate offers him a potion guaranteed to make the drinker the fastest gun in the West for exactly ten seconds. Denton is skeptical but Fate goads him into drinking a free sample, after which Denton immediately realizes its benefits.
    At the appointed time, Denton faces his challenger, Pete Grant, a brash young gunfighter. Denton downs his potion only to find his opponent holding an identical empty bottle. Grant and Denton both realize that Fate tricked them, but it is too late to back out of the duel. Each man shoots the other in the hand, causing injuries which are minor but forever ruin both men’s ability to pull a trigger.
    Denton tells his young opponent that they have both been blessed because they will never again be able to fire a gun in anger. He adds to himself that Grant is lucky because he was given this lesson early. Henry J. Fate tips his hat to Denton and rides quietly out of town.
    Closing narration[edit]

    Mr. Henry Fate, dealer in utensils and pots and pans, liniments and potions. A fanciful little man in a black frock coat who can help a man climbing out of a pit—or another man from falling into one. Because, you see, fate can work that way, in the Twilight Zone.”

    Another possible piece of this puzzle–recall the Russian lawyer, Natalia Veselnitskaya, who sought the June 2016 meeting with Don Trump, Jr., at Trump Tower. Investigative reporters John Solomon of The Hill and Sara Carter of Circa.com reported that the Russian woman’s visa had been extended by high ups in the DOJ which raises some questions as Natalia Veselnitskaya also worked with Fusion GPS. The Trump Tower meeting was in June 2016; the FBI opened its “counterintelligence” investigation of the Trump campaign in July 2016. This raises the question as whether the Trump Tower meeting with the Russian lawyer woman was actually a set-up contrived by DOJ officials and Fusion GPS. Sara Carter’s report on Natalia Veselnitskaya’s visa and immigration status was posted on July 13, 2017, on Circa.com

    One thing that bothers me is I can’t see Steele as the (sole) author. My take is that the dossier was a group effort utilizing people who would know just what would be useful for the various purposes this dossier was meant to be used for. Getting a FISA warrant would be one. Getting the media to bite and publish would be another.

    The whole of the Obama administration was filled with fictional histories that were passed off as true. That he elevated a fiction writer, Rhodes, to the highest levels shows how important fictional narratives were for them.

      That is an incredible amount of power.

    IMO, Sally Yates would come under the category of ‘useful idiot’. I watched the video clip of her testimony provided above and looked at her record of public talks for the DOJ. Nothing very interesting just soft stuff. She is what I would call a ‘front’ person. Female, lib-democrat, (not as far left as Lynch) presentable i.e. neat, tidy, washes behind the ears and chosen to deliver messages by others, as in presenting with Comey the Orlando terrorist debacle to Obama that covered for the FBI who fell down on the job.

    I suspect she was fed the info from the ‘Trump Project’ cabal, and was sent to ‘warn’ the President’s lawyer McGahn with the Flynn revelations (that is what got the ‘muh Russia’ narrative legs). Let’s face it, Flynn was a walking disaster with his obvious FARA violations and leaving a trail of not breadcrumbs, but loaves of bread behind him including lying about his contacts with the Russians to the senior WH staff and Pence who went public defending him that he subsequently pled guilty (but had the more serious charges dropped). Her subsequent ‘opinion’ and refusal to assign enforcement to the President’s EO on immigration probably stems from both her natural political inclinations and the false info she was fed by the Cabal. She was fired, as she should have been.

    So, with limited information I suspect she is part of the plot, but not a manufacturer of the plot. Just the rube that gets to be a messenger. And, we know how that ends.

    In the ACLU link, Wiegmann describes his duties as they relate to FOIA and classified information. Incontrovertible proof that this boy knows what’s up with classified information. Surely he provided his expertise to the Clinton email “matter”. /sarc

    Ex-Department of State Official Donald Keyser Sentenced in Classified Info Case case was investigated by the FBI’s Washington Field Office and the Bureau of Diplomatic Security.

    On 4/25/16, there were 2 back to back meetings at the White House between FISA lawyers and FBI Counsel James Baker. It was hosted by Suhas Subramanyam.

    The people invited are located on the WH visitor log website, found by searching “James Baker”:
    James Baker(FBI)
    Trisha B Anderson (FBI)
    Tashina Guahar( DOJ)
    John T Lynch (DOJ)
    John (Brad) Wiegmann (DOJ)
    Alan Rozenshtein (DOJ)
    Norman (Christopher) Hardee (DOJ)
    Iris Lan (DOJ)

    The DOJ attorneys Tashina Guahar, Christopher Hardee, Brad Wiegmann are FISA attorneys. There are some FISA docs available online with their info on them.

    Iris Lan, DOJ lawyer was in both the April WH meeting and the May 5th meeting. She is an Associate Deputy Attorney General. Trisha B. Anderson is senior counsel to Deputy attorney Generals.

    Michael Sussmann is Perkins Coie FISA expert. In early April Sussmann and James Baker were speaking at a privacy summit. A few weeks later, Baker is meeting with FISA attorneys at the WHITE HOUSE. A few days after that, Sussmann is in secret meetings at the DNC about their “data breach”. Sussman brought in Crowdstrike.

    The controversy surrounding the bias of Andrew Weissmann towards Sally Yates. Weissmann lavished praise on Sally Yates after her decision to defy President Trump and not enforce his travel ban executive order, according to government emails published. “I am so proud,” Weissman, then a top prosecutor in the Justice Department’s criminal division, wrote to then-acting Attorney General Yates after the move. “And in awe. Thank you so much. All my deepest respects.”

      Mickey Wasp,

      Is there a time line of these April – May 2016 meetings somewhere?

      Laying out the dates of the meetings and their participants on a spread sheet will peel back a lot of fog and provide a means of inferring decisions made and by which principles.

      April – May 2016 is when Trump sewed up the GOP nomination and the Deep State realized that it needed/had to create a “Parallel construction” to cover the illegal domestic surveillance they were already doing.

      A Uniparty GOP candidate meant they didn’t have to do this, see the Hill piece by SHARYL ATTKISSON I provided a link for.

      Trump as President meant he could hang them all, because they have no hooks into him.

      The “Trump Project” makes a great deal more sense now. It was less a coup and more a Mel Brookes’ “Blazing Saddles”-ish “We gotta save our phony baloney jobs.”

      These “Deep State” yo-yos expected Hillary to win and that Trump would be incompetent as President if he won, when neither was true.

    Researching this stuff isn’t my skill set…but this seems to be related.


    I strongly suspect many of the names involved in these 10 events SHARYL ATTKISSON mentions are also involved in “The Trump Project” of July 2016 to date.

    When I was looking at Luke Dembosky, I found this at a nasty Trump bashing site:

    Quick bio: Mattathias Schwartz is a former national security reporter for The Intercept. He has served as a contributing writer at the New York Times Magazine, a staff writer at The New Yorker, and is currently a term member at the Council on Foreign Relations. In the past, he has contributed to the print editions of the Wall Street Journal…

    This is what he wrote after his initial Trump bashing.
    “…. Mary B. McCord, who has been helping oversee the Justice Department’s probe into Russian interference in the presidential election, is stepping down from her post as the acting head of the department’s national security division and leaving the federal government in the coming weeks, a source familiar with McCord’s role told The Intercept….

    McCord is a career civil servant who became acting assistant attorney general in charge of the national security division in October, when John Carlin, an Obama appointee, resigned. In that role, McCord was responsible for counterintelligence and counterterrorism investigations at Justice. In his testimony before Congress, FBI Director James Comey described the Russia probe as “a counterintelligence investigation” and said it would “include an assessment of whether any crimes were committed.”
    “Any major investigation related to counter-intelligence or cyber-related counter-intelligence would fall under Mary’s leadership,” said Luke Dembosky, who served as deputy assistant attorney general at the national security division until last spring

    In March, McCord announced the indictment of two Russian intelligence officers and two hackers accused of accessing Yahoo’s network and the contents of webmail accounts. At a press conference, McCord said that Yahoo hacking case was “a separate investigation” from the hacks of the Democratic National Committee. “That’s an ongoing investigation,” she said of the DNC matter…”

    After reviewing his military, personal, and political life/careers; is it really un-conscienable to speculate that ‘songbird’ richly deserves what’s coming to him next?


  41. NJ Transplant says:

    “D” is Heather Cartwright. She was honored by the American Bar Assn in Nov/17 and the write-up says she has been director of OVT since 2007.


  42. NJ Transplant says:

    I believe “E” is John P. Carlin. He was called Asst AG for National Security. He was in the office from April/14 through October/16. The Office of Intelligence website lists the past Assistant AGs and their terms.


  43. Bugsdaddy says:

    OK.. Catching up after a wonderful Christmas holiday…..

    SD indicates that the dossier was instrumental in obtaining the FISA warrant. Has that now been established? Or is it still in the highly suspected category? The reason I ask is that the last I recall, it was indicated that would blow the whole mess to smithereens and be enough evidence to begin perp-walking some of these jerks.

    Not sure if I missed something or not……

    September 15, 2016 – Speaker bio:

  46. jello333 says:

    I’m trying to catch up on posts from the past few days, so only just now seeing this one. Don’t know if I could have been of any help, but looks like it’s no longer needed. 😉 You guys are AMAZING in what you’ve dug up…. crowd-sourcing at its finest! (And this has always been one of Sundance’s strong suits… knowing when to “delegate” by throwing ideas/questions out there and just letting everyone GO AT IT.)
