WOW – Interesting Interview With Joe DiGenova Links DOJ-NSD John Carlin With FISA Court Judge Rudolph Contreras…

The word is getting out. People are slowing beginning to piece together the BIGGER STORY of what fundamentally lies behind the Obama administration’s 2016 use of FISA 702(16)(17) surveillance, and how the intentional non-oversight of the Department of Justice National Security Division was used in the construct of the unlawful FBI surveillance and spying operation against presidential candidate Donald Trump.

During a radio interview on WMAL legal analyst and former U.S. Attorney General for Washington DC, Joe DiGenova, specifically highlights the DOJ National Security Division head John P Carlin and his role in the 2016 FISA warrant.  Other than within our own research few people are paying attention to the DOJ-NSD side.

Additionally, and in complete concurrence with our prior research, DiGenova states first-hand knowledge that FISA Court Judge Rudolph Contreras did not recuse himself – but was rather forcibly recused from the Michael Flynn case by either U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts or the aggregate FISA court.

IMPORTANT: Listen to the first 7:30 of the interview below. This is secondary confirmation of what we have independently been outlining for months:

On December 7th, 2017, it was announced that U.S. District Court Judge Rudolph Contreras was mysteriously recused from the Special Counsel case against General Mike Flynn, five days after Judge Contreras accepting the initial pleading. No explanation as to ‘why’?

(Reuters) The U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia judge presiding over the criminal case for President Donald Trump’s former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn has been recused from handling the case, a court spokeswoman said on Thursday. (read more)

One might think the media apparatus, or pundit proletariat writ large, might be curious about why a U.S. District Court Judge would be recused. Alas One would be wrong. The recusal angle is transparently missing from any follow-up by media; and apparently the judicial cat also has stolen the tongue of congressional curiosity. Nothing. Nada. Zilch.

The story has been memory holed into the concentric whirlpool of nothingness.

We have speculated that U.S. District Court Judge Rudolph Contreras was recused, either by himself or by challenge, because he is also a FISA Court Judge and could have signed off on the October FISA warrant that led to the wiretapping and surveillance of General Flynn.  Joe DiGenova states he has first-hand knowledge Contreras was forcibly recused.

(link)

The question then becomes why did the judge even allow himself to preside over the first hearing of General Mike Flynn’s rather odd guilty plea?

Was the October 2016 FISA warrant part of the evidence in the overall process charge against Mike Flynn? What are the rules of FISA warrant content in cases where the warrant leads to a prosecution? Did Judge Contreras sit on the initial plea hearing so another judge would not see the FISA information, recognize any problems, and maybe not approve the plea?

The only two significant things that happened between the initial Mike Flynn plea hearing and the recusal of Judge Contreras was:

#1) The stories about anti-Trump FBI Agent Peter Strzok and his involvement with Fusion-GPS and Christopher Steele; and

#2) FBI Director Chris Wray appearing before the House Judicial Committee and hearing Representative Jim Jordan demand to see the 2016 FISA application.

In fact, Judge Contreras was recused only a few hours after that House Judicial Committee hearing.

These are all just general questions that stem from Judge Contreras appearing to concede to a conflict, but doing so only AFTER the first administrative hearing on the case. If the conflict existed on December 7th 2017, such that a recusal was needed, would not that conflict exist prior to December 7th, 2017?

Apparently no-one else is in the least bit curious; and absent of anyone seeking such clarity; it leads CTH to wonder if U.S. District Court Judge Rudolph Contreras wasn’t possibly the same judge that denied the initial FISA application in June of 2016.

It’s very rare that a FISA application is denied. Considering he possibility the denial was based, in part, on the target (candidate Donald Trump) of the FISA warrant; and considering the massive ramifications within the U.S. government applying to monitor, wiretap and use surveillance upon a presidential candidate; it would not be a stretch to think Judge Contreras would establish a ‘higher threshold’ for granting such authority.

Given what we know now, that we did not know before, namely that FBI Agent Peter Strzok and DOJ Deputy Bruce Ohr were part of the counterintelligence operation that began in July 2016…. and understanding that Nellie Ohr, Bruce’s wife, was working for Fusion GPS the contractor for Christopher Steele and the Russian Dossier…. ultimately hired by Hillary Clinton;…. and accepting that the information within the dossier was part of the underlying FISA application… the entire construct of the FISA application is suspect.

Adding yet another layer to that sketchy outline, it was previously revealed that Peter Strzok’s mistress within the DOJ, Lisa Page, might have been the actual DOJ official to apply for the FISA warrant. (SEE HERE) Lisa Page is the legal bridge between the FBI Counterintelligence operation (Peter Strzok) and the DOJ National Security Division (John P Carlin).

REMINDER – FBI Agent Strzok to FBI Attorney Page:

“I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy’s office that there’s no way he gets elected – but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk. It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40.”

In 2015 Asst. Attorney General Sally Yates blocked any inspector general oversight of the DOJ National Security Division (SEE Pdf HERE).  The Office of Inspector General. Michael Horowitz, requested oversight over the DOJ National Security Division and it was Sally Yates who responded with a lengthy 58-page legal explanation saying, essentially, ‘nope – not allowed.’ (PDF HERE) All of the DOJ is subject to oversight, except the NSD.

During the 2016 FBI Counterintelligence operation (began in July 2016 per Comey) the DOJ National Security Division appears to be the originating entity for the FISA 702(17) “About Queries”. Again, 702 is basically spying on Americans; the actual “spying” part is 702. Item 17 is “About Queries“, which allows queries or searches of NSA collected data within the search fields of intelligence inquiry.  Those “About Queries” retrieve the content of email and phone conversations for the targeted response.

As a result of NSA Director Admiral Mike Rogers suspecting [FISA 702 (#17 – email and phone calls)] surveillance activity was being used for reasons he deemed unlawful, in mid 2016 Rogers ordered the NSA compliance officer to run a full audit on 702 NSA compliance.

The NSA compliance officer identified several strange 702 “About Queries” that were being conducted. These were violations of the fourth amendment (illegal search and seizure without a warrant), ie. unlawful surveillance and gathering. Admiral Rogers was briefed by the compliance officer on October 20th, 2016.

The DOJ National Security Division then set Admiral Mike Rogers up to take the fall for their unlawful conduct.  John P Carlin preempted Rogers by filing a notification with the FISA Court on 26th September 2016 (look at the pdf).

DOJ-NSD head John P Carlin was setting up Rogers as the scapegoat while knowing the NSA FISA compliance officer was still reviewing their conduct. Carlin wouldn’t notify the court unless he was trying to cover something. Carlin then announced his resignation.

The NSA compliance officer did not brief Admiral Rogers until 20th Oct 2016. Admiral Rogers notified the FISC on 26th Oct 2016.

Summary of the Appearance of Activity – •Obama’s political operatives within the DOJ-NSD, that had no oversight, appear to have been using FISA 702(17) surveillance “about inquiries” that would deliver email and phone communication for U.S. people (Trump campaign). •The NSD unit was working in coordination with the FBI Counterintelligence Unit (Peter Strzok etc.).  •In an effort to stop the activity NSA Director Mike Rogers initiated a full 702 compliance review.  •However, before the review was complete the DOJ-NSD had enough information for their unlawful FISA warrant which worked retroactively to make the prior FBI surveillance (began in July ’16 per James Comey) lawful. Mike Rogers stopped the process on October 26th 2016. •As a result of his not going along, Rogers became a risk; DNI James Clapper demanded he be fired.

Which takes us back to U.S. District Court Judge Rudolph Contreras.

Was the recusal an outcome of Contreras recognizing the concerns he expressed in the June 2016 FISA denial; that were later presumably belayed with a more narrow FISA application (albeit enhanced and weighted by the additional unlawful evidence collected, ie. the “insurance policy”) evidenced in his seeing how the FISA warrant he granted was used against the defendant, Flynn, that appeared in his courtroom?

Did Contreras see in Flynn’s outcome – evidence of what he feared would happen? Did that lead to Judge Contreras forced recusal?… or was Contreras a participant in the ‘matter’?

So many questions, and yet a transparent lack of overall curiosity around the recusal.

Ten days after the 2016 election, November 17th 2016, Admiral Rogers travels to Trump Tower without telling ODNI James Clapper. Rogers likely informs President-elect Trump of the prior activity by the FBI and DOJ, including the probability that all of Trump Tower’s email and phone communication was being collected.

On November 17th, 2016, NSA Director Admiral Mike Rogers went to see President-Elect Donald Trump in Trump Tower, New York.  –SEE HERE–  Director Rogers never told his boss DNI, James Clapper.

On November 18th, 2016, the Trump Transition Team announced they were moving all transition activity to Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey. –SEE HERE– Where they interviewed and discussed the most sensitive positions to fill.  Defense, State, CIA, ODNI.

 

FBI Agent Peter Strzok’s former boss was Bill Priestap, FBI Asst. Director in charge of Counterintelligence. [The same Bill Priestap James Comey stated was the person who decided not to tell congressional oversight of the investigation] Bill Priestap’s boss was FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe. Directly above McCabe in the chain-of-command was FBI Director James Comey.

Inside Main Justice: Associate Deputy Attorney General Bruce G Ohr’s former boss was Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates. Sally Yates boss was Attorney General Loretta Lynch.  John P. Carlin was head of the National Security Division inside the DOJ, and Lisa Page was the DOJ lawyer who represents the bridge between the legal side (DOJ) and the investigative side (FBI).

    Talks about Flynn right here in this article. The FBI sending unauthorized info to 3rd parties, specifically Flynn.

    But the FBI also was forced to admit its agents and analysts shared espionage data with prohibited third parties, ranging from a federal contractor to a private entity that did not have the legal right to see the intelligence.

    Such third-party sharing is a huge political concern now as Congress and intelligence community leaders try to stop the flow of classified information to parties that could illegally disclose or misuse it, such as the recent leak that disclosed intercepted communications between the Russian ambassador and Trump’s first national security adviser, Michael Flynn.

    The court’s memo suggested the FBI’s sharing of raw intelligence to third parties, at the time, had good law enforcement intentions but bad judgment and inadequate training.

    “Nonetheless, the above described practices violated the governing minimization procedures,” the court chided.

    A footnote in the ruling stated one instance of improper sharing was likely intentional.

    “Improper access” to NSA spy data for FBI contractors “seems to have been the result of deliberate decision-making,” the court noted.

    The recently unsealed ruling also revealed the FBI is investigating more cases of possible improper sharing with private parties that recently have come to light.

    The government “is investigating whether there have been similar cases in which the FBI improperly afforded non-FBI personnel access to raw FISA-acquired information on FBI systems,” the court warned.

    The ruling cited other FBI failures in handling Section 702 intel, including retaining data on computer storage systems “in violation of applicable minimization requirements.”

    Among the most serious additional concerns was the FBI’s failure for more than two years to establish review teams to ensure intercepts between targets and their lawyers aren’t violating the attorney-client privilege.

    Sundance,
    I have re-read Andrew McCarthy ‘s March 2017 article in light of what we now know about the FISA warrant and the dossier. A few things jumped out at me, this in particular:

    “… Trump’s tweets on Saturday prompted some interesting “denials” from the Obama camp. These can be summarized in the statement put out by Obama spokesman Kevin Lewis:

    ‘A cardinal rule of the Obama Administration was that no White House official ever interfered with any independent investigation led by the Department of Justice. As part of that practice, neither President Obama nor any White House official ever ordered surveillance on any U.S. citizen. Any suggestion otherwise is simply false.’

    This seems disingenuous on several levels.

    First, as Obama officials well know, under the FISA process, it is technically the FISA court that “orders” surveillance. And by statute, it is the Justice Department, not the White House, that represents the government in proceedings before the FISA court. So, the issue is not whether Obama or some member of his White House staff “ordered” surveillance of Trump and his associates. The issues are (a) whether the Obama Justice Department sought such surveillance authorization from the FISA court, and (b) whether, if the Justice Department did that, the White House was aware of or complicit in the decision to do so. Personally, given the explosive and controversial nature of the surveillance request we are talking about – an application to wiretap the presidential candidate of the opposition party, and some of his associates, during the heat of the presidential campaign, based on the allegation that the candidate and his associates were acting as Russian agents – it seems to me that there is less than zero chance that could have happened without consultation between the Justice Department and the White House.

    Second, the business about never ordering surveillance against American citizens is nonsense. Obama had American citizens killed in drone operations. Obviously, that was not done in the U.S. or through the FISA process; it was done overseas, under the president’s commander-in-chief and statutory authority during wartime. But the notion that Obama would never have an American subject to surveillance is absurd. ”

    http://www.nationalreview.com/corner/445504/obama-camps-fisa-surveillance-trump-denials

    ——————–

    Kevin Lewis’ remarks remind me of:

    Hamlet then turns to his mother and asks her, “Madam, how like you this play?”, to which she replies “The lady doth protest too much, methinks.”

    Secondly… if the first sentence of Lewis’ tweet is correct, then the second cannot be, for if Obama’s right hand did not know what the left was doing, how can Lewis know for sure that surveillance was never ordered on any American citizen?

    Which brings me to Andrew’s closing paragraph:

    “… Moreover, it cannot be glossed over that, at the very time it appears the Obama Justice Department was seeking to surveil Trump and/or his associates on the pretext that they were Russian agents, the Obama Justice Department was also actively undermining and ultimately closing without charges the criminal investigation of Hillary Clinton despite significant evidence of felony misconduct that threatened national security.”

    This appears to be extraordinary, politically motivated abuse of presidential power.”

      So they get the guy for saying he can’t remember something? Funny, I seem to recall HRC, Huma, Cheryl Mills, etc., use “I don’t recall” about a million times in their public and/or published testimony.

      It was a “get out of jail” card for them, but a “get IN jail” card for Flynn?

      I guess I’ll prepare myself to be let down again. Hopefully, my expectations will be exceeded.

        … and what Flynn was doing which he did not admit to the FBI was, in itself, NOT illegal and WAS supportive of the Obama admin action. ( It had exactly ZERO to do with Russia influencing the election.)

        So why the arrest and prosecution? – and IF the politically corrupt investigators were being investigated, would their internal communications revealing “going after Flynn to get Trump,” reveal their own corruption?

        I have been trying to understand A – why Flynn said anything to the FBI, and B – how could he be so politically incompetent as to put himself in this position. ( Everybody knows that since watergate, it is the cover-up that gets you indicted) Yet apparently Flynn covered up perfectly legalization actions?

        Is there an outside chance that Flynn did this on purpose to further draw in and gain additional evidence against the corrupt deep – state operatives?

    I remember a while back DiGenova saying in an interview (I believe it was with Hannity) that it is no secret that when Comey was in New York at the same time as Trump, Comey despised Trump. He said that Comey made sure that everyone knew that in New York that he was connected to. It is not surprising that Comey’s continuation of his hatred of Trump is probably going to be his downfall, according to DiGenova. DiGenova tends to think that Comey is going to go down.

    Contreras was appointed to the FISC JUST before the first (and failed) FISA attempt. Maybe his appointment was a form of ensuring a friendly swamp judge would be available.

    Did he review both FISA applications? Or did one FISA judge refuse and reject the first application and then Contreras was assigned to handle the “enhanced” one that was approved? Also, no matter which whether there were one or two FISA judges involved, what material inadequacy caused the first submission to be deemed insufficient and how was the dossier created/modified to SPECIFICALLY address those probable cause evidentiary shortcomings?

    Some interesting tidbits from the Order:

    Mark Elias, of Perkins Coie, represented both the Clinton campaign and the DNC. Elias retained Fusion for research on Trump.
    Fusion was accused of acting as an unregistered agent of the Russian government, in violation of the Foreign Agent Registration Act, based on work it performed for Prevezon Holdings, a Russian state-owned company. The order also states that reports confirmed that various law firms and businesses had retained Fusion on behalf of their clients to perform Russia-related work. The Order says the committee has evidence that links these businesses with Russia and Russian operatives. Presumably Prevezon is one, but there are more.

    Prevezon settled a money laundering case with the DOJ.

    http://www.cnn.com/2017/11/02/world/russia-money-laundering-deadline-missed/index.html

    Prevezon was represented by Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya, who is now infamous for her meeting with Trump Jr and others at Trump tower.

    It’s really not hard to connect these dots. There was collusion with Russia to be sure. But follow the money: Hillary/DNC – Fusion – FBI/DOJ- Prevezon (i.e. Putin a/k/a Russia) – Natalia Veselnitskaya – Trump tower meeting to set up Trump.

      “… But Obama vetoed the legislation, telling Congress that he did so because the bill also would have terminated the salaries and benefits of former presidents’ staff, and made it harder for the Secret Service to protect former presidents.

      “The Secretary of the Treasury pays a taxable pension to the president. Former presidents receive a pension equal to the pay that the head of an executive department (Executive Level I) would be paid, as of 2015 $203,700 per year. The pension begins immediately after a president’s departure from office.”

    Here is my take with Flynn.
    Obama fired him from the DIA. Flynn then goes and hooks up with Trump. What was the real reason Obama fired him? Only they know, but knowing what we know Obama was up to, it’s not a stretch to conclude that Flynn was on to him and wouldn’t play ball.
    Once he joined Trump he became the most dangerous man alive, hence the all out assault to discredit and attack him relentlessly including wire tapping.
    They knew once Trump got sworn in and Flynn took the reins as DNI, he would find out everything and the whole plot would be export.
    The one thing they didn’t count on was Rogers spilling the beans to Trump, which basically wiped out the whole plot on Flynn.
    I think Flynn is screwing with Mulehead right now, knowing Trump will pardon him and is exposing the corrupt Judge and Mueller/Rosenstein who went at him immediately. We haven’t heard the last from Flynn I suspect.

    It is my hope that Contreras will stand trial having used willingly and knowingly his knowledge after co-operating and conspiring with the Obama/gillary/Strzok/Comey/Pag/Lynch et mob to charge Flynn with a crime he knew well that there was no crime but rather than Flynn became a target being a part of the political opponent and Trump campaign.

    I apologize for coming back to this so late. I can’t get my mind around the Flynn Statement of the Offense linked in this post.

    One of the Special Counsel signators to the Flynn document is a woman named Zainab Ahmad. I googled her out of sheer curiosity. Although she allegedly normally works for the DOJ in New York prosecuting terrorism cases, she was sent to “Main Justice” for some special temporary project in 2016, right around the time the first FISA application was filed. She later went back to her regular job for only a few months, and then went to work for the Special Counsel.

    At some point in 2017 she was profiled in an article in the New Yorker.

    It seems odd that a supposed hard core prosecutor of terrorism cases would allow herself to be publicly profiled and exposed in a “popular” magazine article. This suggests an ambitious person with questionable judgment.

    Then I remembered what has been said in this site’s posts about Mueller’s purpose being to protect the people who had compromised themselves.

    White House visitor logs show that she was at the White House several times in 2016.

    Of coarse I am refering to the FISA abuse to frame the incoming adminstration with ‘muh Russia’ collusion, their obstruction of the HRC email ‘matter’ and the larger dubious ramifications of the UraniumOne, Clinton Foundation pay for play and HRC tenure at State with its rampant corruption just to name a few, because there is also the DNC/MSM efforts to misdirect the PR Nightmare of HRC away from her campaigne and DWS IT Awan affair with Congressional members to name just a few more.

    With all these over lapping interests of the various people involved, I am greatly worried that unless these interrelated investigations are brought together under one umbrella the final outcome will be a WHITEWASH.

      Strike dubious from my above post, i was trying to say the dubious nature of any valid reasons for these deals of the Clinton’s other than the self interest of their enrichment.
      In the context of where i used it, dubuous changes the meaning to a position that the UraniumOne investigation is dubious and not worth investigating.

      Easy . You are use to the left telling you everything favorable to them and the right being washed away by it. This time the facts and the proof are out of the Lefts hands. they may control the propaganda media . but they no longer control the levers of power

    If the judge was forcibly, not voluntarily, removed from the case, then he likely has unclean hands in the matter of General Flynn’s “guilty” plea. The evidence against Flynn appears tainted by fruit from the poisonous tree. I predict that he will retract his plea, that the charge against him will be dismissed or withdrawn, and that dirty cop Mueller’s blackmail tactics (threatening Flynn with prosecution of his son) will be exposed and will land Mueller in a mother load of trouble.
