The DOJ and FBI Worked With Fusion GPS on “Operation Trump”….

Following the released transcript of Fusion-GPS Co-Founder Glenn Simpson’s testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee by Senator Dianne Feinstein, several media outlets have begun questioning the relationship between the FBI investigators, Glenn Simpson and dossier author Christopher Steele.

What we have discovered highlights the answer to those relationship questions; and also answers a host of other questions, including: Did the FBI pay Christopher Steele?  Yes, but now how media has stated.  Was the FBI connected to the creation of the Steele Dossier? Yes, but again, not the way the media is currently outlining.

The motive within the FBI/DOJ surveillance of the 2016 campaign of Donald Trump is simple. However, to understand how they did it – the story becomes more complex.  Some key background understanding is necessary.

♦First, to understand what took place in 2016 we must travel back to 2015 when Office of Inspector General (OIG) Michael Horowitz asked for approval to conduct oversight over the National Security Division of the Department of Justice; the DOJ-NSD.

In 2015 Inspector General Michael Horowitz was blocked by the Department of Justice from having oversight over the DOJ-NSD. In a lengthy response to the IG’s office [Full 58 page pdf HERE] Sally Yates essentially said ‘all DOJ is subject to oversight, except the National Security Division’.

♦Second, to understand how FISA is used within the intelligence community it is CRITICAL to understand that IC departments centered around National Security, such as the DOJ National Security Division, or the FBI Counterintelligence Division, may use the NSA database -and FISA enabled inquires- with considerably more leeway, and less restrictions on access and use.  In short, FISA “queries” from any national security department within government are allowed without seeking court approval.

During a recent hearing discussion between current FBI Director Christopher Wray and House Judiciary Chairman, Bob Goodlatte, the context is outlined.  WATCH:

.

The scale and scope of what took place in 2016 is also contingent upon understanding how the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) was being used.  Specifically how *critical* exceptions for FISA-702 “search queries”, without judicial warrants or FISA court approvals, were permitted.

In 2016 FISA-702(17) “About Queries” from legislatively authorized national security entities within the DOJ and FBI did NOT require FISA court approvals.

Remember this important fact as you continue reading.

WE BEGIN:  The recent stories about the 2016 DOJ and FBI counterintelligence investigation of the Trump campaign center around how the Christopher Steele ‘Russian Dossier’ was used by the DOJ/FBI in obtaining FISA approvals for surveillance of Trump campaign officials.

Within the “Russian Dossier” back-story everyone is familiar with the relationship between Fusion-GPS, the founder of the company, Glenn Simpson, and the author of the dossier, Christopher Steele. Additionally, the relationship between the Clinton campaign and Fusion GPS is now well known.

In/around April of 2016 the Clinton campaign hired and paid Fusion-GPS.  Team Clinton paid Fusion-GPS for information on candidate Donald Trump.  That agreement led to Fusion-GPS hiring sub-contractor Christopher Steele, which eventually led to the creation of the ‘Steele Dossier’.

Yesterday, it was reported the ‘Steele Dossier’ was used as the underlying foundation for the DOJ and FBI to seek FISA Court Approvals to monitor the communications of the Trump campaign.

In essence, as of yesterday, the FBI used Clinton opposition research -via Fusion GPS- on candidate Donald Trump, to generate surveillance authority over her political opponent.

That sounds bad; however, what we have discovered is worse.

Dates are critical because they build the circumstantial case within a story clouded by obfuscation and convenient FISA secrecy.

We know NSA Director Admiral Mike Rogers became aware of an issue with unauthorized FISA-702(17) “About Queries” early in 2016.   As a result of a FISA court ruling declassified in May of 2017 we were able to piece a specific timeline together.

After Rogers discovered the FISA-702(17) “About Query” issues, the NSA Director initiated a full FISA-702 compliance review. [Full Backstory]

Watch this hearing testimony to hear Admiral Rogers explain the timeline:

.

At the same time Christopher Steele was assembling his dossier information (May-October 2016), the NSA compliance officer was conducting an internal FISA-702 review as initiated by NSA Director Mike Rogers.

The NSA compliance officer briefed Admiral Mike Rogers on October 20th 2016.

On October 26th 2016, Admiral Rogers informed the FISA Court of numerous unauthorized FISA-702(17) “About Query” violations.

Subsequent to that FISC notification Mike Rogers stopped all FISA-702(17) “About Queries” permanently. They are no longer permitted.

The full FISA Court Ruling on the notifications from the NSA is below. And to continue the story we are pulling out a specific section [page 83, pdfCRITICAL to understanding what was going on:

Pg 83. “FBI gave raw Section 702–acquired information to a private entity that was not a federal agency and whose personnel were not sufficiently supervised by a federal agency for compliance minimization procedures.”

.

Please pay close attention to this section, pg 84, [Note the date April 18th]:

Notice how it was FBI “private contractors” that were conducting the unauthorized FISA-702 Queries via access to information on FBI storage systems.

We have been tipped off that one of the FBI contractors in question was, unbelievably, Fusion-GPS.

It is almost certain this early 2016 series of FISA-702 compliance violations was the origin of NSA Director Admiral Mike Rogers concern.

Mike Rogers discovery becomes the impetus for him to request the 2016 full NSA compliance audit of FISA-702 use.  It appears Fusion-GPS was the FBI contracted user identified in the final FISA court opinion/ruling on page 83.

Note the dates from the FISC opinion (above) – As soon as the FBI discovered Mike Rogers was looking at the searches, the FBI discontinued allowing their sub-contractor  access to the raw FISA information. Effective April 18th, 2016.

On April 19th, 2016, the day after the FBI stopped allowing access to the FISA database, the wife of Fusion-GPS founder Glenn Simpson, Mary B Jacoby, went to the White House.

(Link to White House Logs)

After months of prior opposition research, including what appears to be their access to FISA-702(17) “Search Queries“as a sub-contractor for the FBI, the wife of Glenn Simpson (Fusion GPS), Mary B. Jacoby, with years of Russia-angled reporting –including Donald Trump– visits the White House.

This is April 19th 2016, the day after the FBI, stopped allowing Fusion-GPS access the NSA FISA-702 database.  Immediately following this White House visit the Clinton campaign hire Fusion GPS to conduct opposition research on Donald Trump, surrounding Russia?

[The Tablet] … Simpson and Jacoby had ID’d Manafort as a world-class sleazeball and they were right. A slick Georgetown Law grad running in GOP circles since the Reagan campaign, Manafort used his talents and connections to get paid by some very bad people. I would only add here that, in my personal experience, journalists are not in the habit of forgetting major stories they’ve written, especially stories with a character like Manafort at the center.

So when the Trump campaign named Paul Manafort as its campaign convention manager on March 28, 2016, you can bet that Simpson and Jacoby’s eyes lit up. And as it happened, at the exact same time that Trump hired Manafort, Fusion GPS was in negotiations with Perkins Coie, the law firm representing the Clinton campaign and the DNC, to see if there was interest in the firm continuing the opposition research on the Trump campaign they had started for the Washington Free Beacon. (more)

This timeline is entirely too obvious.

What plan came from that April 19th,2016 White House meeting?  What plan did Mary Jacoby and Glenn Simpson present to use the information they had assembled?  How and who would they feed their information to; and how do they best use that ‘valuable’ information?

This appears to be where Fusion-GPS contracting with Christopher Steele comes in.

What happens next?

Glenn Simpson and Mary Jacoby (Fusion-GPS)  hires Nellie Ohr:

Contacted by Fox News, investigators for the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI) confirmed that Nellie H. Ohr, wife of the demoted official, Bruce G. Ohr, worked for the opposition research firm last year.

The precise nature of Mrs. Ohr’s duties – including whether she worked on the dossier – remains unclear but a review of her published works available online reveals Mrs. Ohr has written extensively on Russia-related subjects. HPSCI staff confirmed to Fox News that she was paid by Fusion GPS through the summer and fall of 2016. (link)

DOJ Deputy Bruce Ohr and his wife Nellie Ohr had a prior working relationship with Fusion-GPS founder Glenn Simpson.  Together they worked on a collaborative CIA Open Source group project surrounding International Organized Crime. (pdf here) Page #30 Screen Shot Below.

Keep in mind, AFTER April 18th, 2016, Fusion-GPS knows the NSA compliance division is reviewing all of their FISA-702(17) search “query” activity conducted while contracted by the FBI.

The Clinton campaign hired Fusion GPS (April 2016).  Fusion sub-contracted retired British MI6 agent Christopher Steele to write the opposition research report “The Trump Russia Dossier”; and they hire a former intelligence community colleague, Nellie Ohr.

Nellie Ohr is a subject matter expert on Russia, speaks Russian, and also is well versed on CIA operations. Nellie Ohr’s skills would include how to build or create counterintelligence frameworks to give the appearance of events that may be entirely fabricated.

Knowing the NSA was reviewing FISA “Queries”; and intellectually accepting the resulting information from those queries was likely part of the framework put together by Glenn Simpson and Mary Jacoby; we discover that GPS employee Nellie Ohr applied for a HAM radio license [May 23rd 2016] (screen grab below).

Now this begins to take on additional context.

Open, traceable, or monitor-able communication, would be a risk.  The same FISA-702 surveillance activity, used to gather information on the Trump campaign, could just as easily be used against the ‘scheme team’.  NSA surveillance could discover information about the people now assembling FISA data into a fraudulent construct. The goal of that construct would be to justify continued counterintelligence operations, by the FBI, toward the Trump campaign.

The last thing Glenn Simpson, Mary Jacoby, Hillary Clinton, Christopher Steele, or the FBI would want – would be traceable communication networks.  Each of these people or entities would know exactly what the monitoring capability of government is.

Accepting the FBI was utilizing Fusion-GPS as a contractor, there is now an inherent clarity in the relationship between: FBI agent Peter Strzok, Fusion-GPS Glenn Simpson, and ‘Russian Dossier’ author Christopher Steele. They are all on the same team.

The information that Fusion-GPS Glenn Simpson put together from his advanced work on the ‘Trump Project’, was, in essence, built upon the foundation of the close relationship he already had with the FBI.

Simpson, Jacoby and Ohr then passed on their information to Christopher Steele who adds his own ingredients to the mix, turns around, and gives the end product back to the FBI.   That end product is laundered intelligence now called “The Trump/Russia Dossier”.

It is a circle of intelligence information.

The FBI turn around and use the “dossier” as the underlying documents and investigative evidence for continued operations against the target of the entire enterprise, candidate Donald Trump.  As Peter Strzok would say in August 2016: this is their “insurance policy” per se’.

“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.”

~FBI Agent Peter Strzok to FBI Lawyer Lisa Page

In October 2016, immediately after the DOJ lawyers formatted the FBI information (Steele Dossier etc.) for a valid FISA application, the head of the NSD, Asst. Attorney General John P Carlin, left his job.  His exit came as the NSD and Admiral Rogers informed the FISC that frequent unauthorized FISA-702 searches had been conducted. Read Here.

The FISA court declassified their opinion of the DOJ and FBI conduct, in May of 2017, and that’s the way the public discovered the 2016 admissions by the DOJ, FBI and ultimately the compliance department of the NSA.

Yes, the FBI was working with Christopher Steele through their contractor Fusion-GPS.  Yes, the FBI and Clinton Team were, in essence, both paying Christopher Steele for his efforts.  The FBI paid Steele via their sub-contractor Fusion-GPS.

Lastly, when the DOJ/FBI used the Steele Dossier to make their 2016 surveillance activity legal (the October FISA application), they are essentially using the outcome of a process they created themselves in collaboration with both Fusion GPS and the Clinton campaign.

All research indicates the intelligence information the DOJ and FBI collected via their FISA-702 queries, combined with the intelligence Fusion GPS created in their earlier use of contractor access to FISA-702(17) “about queries”, was the intelligence data delivered to Christopher Steele for use in creating “The Russian Dossier”.

Christopher Steele was just laundering intelligence.  The Steele “dossier” was then used by the DOJ to gain FISA-702 approvals – which provided retroactive legal cover for the prior campaign surveillance, and also used post-election to create the “Russian Narrative”.

Ten days after the election, November 17th 2016, Admiral Rogers traveled to Trump Tower without telling ODNI James Clapper. Rogers likely informs President-elect Trump of the prior surveillance activity by the FBI and DOJ, including the likelihood that all of Trump Tower’s email and phone communication were reviewed within the FISA-702 abuse.

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.

The transition team was set up in Trump Tower. The very next day, November 18th 2016, Trump moves the entire transition team to Bedminister New Jersey.

♦Ultimately, the people within all of these unlawful intercepts of information is what Devin Nunes discovered when he looked at the “unmasking requests” which were a result of those FISA 702(17) collections on Team Trump. That’s why Devin Nunes was so stunned at what he saw in February and March 2017.

The ENTIRE SYSTEM of FISA-702 surveillance and data collection was weaponized against a political campaign.  The DOJ and FBI used the FISA Court to gain access to Trump data, and simultaneously justify earlier FISA “queries” by their contractor, Fusion GPS.  FISA-702 queries were used to gather information on the Trump campaign which later became FBI counterintelligence surveillance on the officials therein.

President Trump is 100% correct!

IG Stimulated Releases of Information:

♦Release #1 was the FBI Agent Strzok and Attorney Lisa Page story; and the repercussions from discovering their politically motivated bias in the 2015/2016 Clinton email investigation and 2016/2017 Russian Election investigation.

♦Release #2 outlined the depth of FBI Agent Strzok and FBI Attorney Page’s specific history in the 2016 investigation into Hillary Clinton to include the changing of the wording [“grossly negligent” to “extremely careless”] of the probe outcome delivered by FBI Director James Comey.

♦Release #3 was the information about DOJ Deputy Bruce Ohr being in contact with Fusion GPS at the same time as the FISA application was submitted and granted by the FISA court; which authorized surveillance and wiretapping of candidate Donald Trump; that release also attached Bruce Ohr and Agent Strzok directly to the Steele Dossier.

♦Release #4 was information that Deputy Bruce Ohr’s wife, Nellie Ohr, was an actual contract employee of Fusion GPS, and was hired by F-GPS specifically to work on opposition research against candidate Donald Trump. Both Bruce Ohr and Nellie Ohr are attached to the origin of the Christopher Steele Russian Dossier.

♦Release #5 was the specific communication between FBI Agent Strzok and FBI Attorney Page. The 10,000 text messages that included evidence of them both meeting with Asst. FBI Director Andrew McCabe to discuss the “insurance policy” against candidate Donald Trump in August of 2016.

        @covfefe999: Feinstein also sits on the intelligence committee and is one of the gang of 8. Don’t think for one minute that she innocently sits by and just blow it off. She had all interest in seeing Hillary win as compromised she and her hubby are. Remember she steered billions of dollars to her husbands business n California while sitting on the committee for military re-construction. She is also known as a slumlord all over California after buying up all the foreclosed homes, put a bit of money in it and rent them all out. Of course she steered funds for that too to her husbands real estate business.
        She by herself is worth 77 million dollars and her hubby by himself is worth double that of Diane Feinstein.
        Now she want to blame the release of the transcript on her bad cold? She’s losing her mind. She did what she could to obfuscate while still claiming collusion and obstruction of justice.
        One little nugget though: Jeb Bush and his 100 million PAC together with Free Bacon were the very first ones working with Fusion GPS to get opposition of Trump. When he realized he could not win the primaries her shopped all that he already had to Hillary and the DNC. He needs to be included because he started the ball rolling and the other side bought it and ran with it.

    ‘A Major Defense Contractor Buys Its Way Back Into the Spying Business’
    May 11, 2015

    “Case in point: the recent acquisition by SAIC, a prime government contractor, of Scitor Corporation, the most secretive and least-known of the companies that collect and analyze signals intelligence.

    One potential and very probable market for SAIC is the CIA itself, where Scitor is highly valued for its technical expertise. CIA Director John Brennan is currently pushing a radical reorganization that would end the agency’s traditional split between analysis and operations to create separate, hybrid “mission centers” modeled on the National Counterterrorism Center, where analysts and operatives work side-by-side.

    Like the NCTC itself, these mini-CIAs would be heavily staffed by contractors. And they are being created at a time when the CIA’s is increasingly seen as a para-military force. For SAIC and Scitor, which both have extensive experience in black ops, Brennan’s future vision for the CIA could be the perfect storm of opportunity.”

    It seems rather odd that you think the report on abuses is ONLY related to terrorism when the FISC report linked in the story, clearly shows that AMERICANS were unmasked. We also know that intelligence contained in the PDB was nothing to do with any international case, but about DOMESTIC spying unrelated to terrorism.

    You may wish to spend a day or two reading all of SD’s articles on this subject. Or even any other publication that has been reporting on the spying on Trump since 2015. NYTimes did a story in 2015…. shock of shocks.

    If I understand this correctly and put it in the most simple terms so I can explain it succinctly to others, the fbi/doj and fusion queried Trump tower and unmasked the surveillance without fisa court approval. When it became known that admiral Michael Rogers was onto them, they shut down the queries and went to the Obama white house for a strategy meeting. The strategy was that the clinton campaign picked up where the fbi/doj left off, and clinton, Obama and the dnc took over paying fusion with the clinton campaign replacing the fbi as the fusion client of record. Steele takes the fbi/fusion unmasked surveillance data and creates the dossier, and then delivers it back to their original client, the fbi. The fbi then leaks it to msm and john mccain who flood the airwaves with russiagate stories.

      Steele is a foreign operative, along with the Russian attorney lady sent to entrap Don Jr. So they have clearly colluded with foreign agents to affect the U.S. election and, post that election, attempt to remove the POTUS from power- which now moves the collusion with foreign operatives charge to potential sedition and possibly treason violations – as well as of course obstruction – which brings back into play potential FBI obstruction charges regarding HRC emails – regarding Uranium one – regarding the Obama administration culpability in all of this.

        Gracie, do you remember when the “dossier” was first released by Buzzfeed in response to a CNN report?? Do you remember that one of the first allegations that was pushed to connect Trump with Russia was that his Attorney, Michael Cohen had been in the Czech Republic meeting with Russians??? I see how the true data became the false narrative in the very first attack.

        January 10, 2017 Buzzfeed publishes the dossier in response to CNN’s report that two pages were shown to the President…..

        January 11, 2017 CNN –
        “The claims about COHEN’s dealings with the Kremlin surfaced on Tuesday evening[’cause Buzzfeed published] after CNN reported intelligence officials have presented Trump with accusations that there was an ongoing exchange of information between the Russian government and his campaign. The officials reportedly detailed the claims last Friday when they gave Trump a briefing on Russian involvement in the election. In that briefing, the officials also delivered a report that concluded the Russians launched cyberattacks on Democrats and Trump’s rival, Hillary Clinton, for the purpose of boosting his chances.”

        https://www.yahoo.com/news/trump-attorney-michael-cohen-i-have-no-russian-kremlin-connections-071908867.html

        After the fact we discover that no, Trump’s Attorney Michael Cohen didn’t go to the Czech Republic or Prague to meet with Kremlin officials, his passport proved it (duh-oh,).
        Truth, an ordinary American named Michael Cohen travelled to Prague and met with somebody with a Russian name on a very specific and verifiable date and during a 702 query, NSA data for that unknowing American citizen named Michael Cohen was brought up, then the data was unmasked….if it was unmasked on Trump’s attorney Michael Cohen’s data, one might consider it “political”, but no, this was the data from a private uninvolved American citizen that was unmasked and criminally presented to Steele as being NSA data on Trump’s attorney Michael Cohen.

        NSA data was legitimate and truthful. Steele used the legitimate and truthful data to weave the attack narrative. What was totally false was the fact that the data didn’t belong to Michael Cohen attorney to the President, the data belonged to an ordinary American who was unmasked and that unmasked data was then represented as belonging to another..

        My last observation is that I am guessing that Glenn Simpson wet his jammies and thought he won the lottery when this little piece of NSA data was unmasked.

          Actually I think it was Nellie Ohr who wrote the rough draft. She was a CIA operative working with Russian intel. (Per spook I had breakfast with a few weeks ago and other references.) She then shipped the Draft to Chris Steele the British Operative who also worked with Russian intel. The idea was to make sure the language style matched that of the FSB.

          This would be the logical reason for Nellie’s Ham licence. So writer and editor could communicate probably through a third party.

      Yes. This is the part that is new information. Fusion was already working against Donald Trump for the FBI and being given access to all of his and his family and probably friends’ private communication before they were even contracted by the Clinton campaign.

      When caught, they “laundered” info and manufactured story lines to create salacious dossier to then use to try to legalize all the previous spying with an actual warrant.

        Prosecutors and grand juries necessarily operate in secret. It is essential that the American public come to understand the scope and scale of the perfidy that the anti-Trump conspiracy has attempted. Yes, there are risks with entrusting Congress, but a televised Select Committee (maybe of both houses), with professional counsel doing the interrogating of witnesses, offer the best hope of shedding light on the traitors. It would offer great drama and probably hold everyone’s interest for the whole summer.

    With this new information and timeline it is now more clear what the above insurance policy text message meant.

    With Mike Rogers exposing the FISA 702 17s and the ever more real possibility that Trump might actually win, they couldn’t take the risk that a President Trump would find out about the queries on American citizens, the Trump campaign.

      I read an article a couple of months ago now written by a Brit that said basically the same thing your hubby said. That the Steele character may be retired, but you’re never REALLY retired when you had the position he did and that he would of course have cleared any such activity with British Intelligence and most likely the British PM would have had to know or approve of the activity, and certainly be kept briefed.

      Having said that, it sounds like this dossier was really poorly done. Our silly spies couldn’t write good enough fiction for it to pass muster and even having the former head of “Russia House” juice it up didn’t seem to help.

      9-20-17 TruePundit

      “Six U.S. agencies created a stealth task force, spearhead by CIA’s Brennan, to run domestic surveillance on Trump associates and possibly Trump himself.

      To feign ignorance and to seemingly operate within U.S. laws, the agencies freelanced the wiretapping of Trump associates to the British spy agency GCHQ.

      The decision to insert GCHQ as a back door to eavesdrop was sparked by the denial of two FISA Court warrant applications filed by the FBI to seek wiretaps of Trump associates.

      GCHQ did not work from London or the UK. In fact the spy agency worked from NSA’s headquarters in Fort Meade, MD with direct NSA supervision and guidance to conduct sweeping surveillance on Trump associates.”

      (I wonder if Adm Rogers knew of GCHQ’s presence.)

    I think the sequence and timing of the release of CLEARLY UNDERSTOOD information is critical. This is a HUGELY complicated, multi-dimensional criminal conspiracy that had to be known, if not orchestrated, at the highest levels of the administration and the IC. The scope is massive. The consequences are “life changing” for those involved.

    I fear it’s taking too long for easily understood, piece by piece information to come out. The base is being worn down by the sequential lies told about PDJT (cooperation replaced by collusion replaced by obstruction replaced by unfitness for office). The long promised Jan. 15 release of the IG report is now not being talked about much, which leads me to believe it’s not done and will be released much later.

    I could go on. I understand the definition of “patience”. But we have the mid terms approaching and a lot of Repubs “retiring”. So we need the base on board BIGLY.

    If nothing concrete and understandable happens re: the RULE OF LAW within, lets say, the next month then I fear we’re running out of time to energize the base for the mid terms and may lose the House. If that happens, the activity in the House shifts from meaningful legislation to full bore obstruction. Game largely over.

    Net: time is a wastin’. We need an effective and rapidly deployed communications program that identifies crimes committed, and who was involved, leading to grand juries, indictments and prosecutions. Nothing less, and nothing much further delayed, will keep the Trump Train rolling through the mid-terms.

    ” (Donna) Brazile says she had a “spook,” with connections to the intelligence community, who told her after the killing that she needed protection for herself, including cameras, alarms and backup power at her house, and that she heeded his advice.

    Brazile was so concerned with Rich’s death that she used her brief, only phone call from Hillary Clinton after the election loss to bring him up. She asked Clinton to use some of the millions of dollars the campaign had in order to set up a reward fund to find his murderer. But Hillary said she “really had to go.”

    Daniel John Sobieski on American Thinker has this today:

    “The Russians did not provide WikiLeaks with any purloined emails or other documents, according to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. As Fox News reported on Assange’s interview with Sean Hannity:

    Wiki[L]eaks founder Julian Assange denied Thursday that hacked emails from the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta were stolen and passed to his organization by Russian state actors.

    “Our source is not the Russian government,” Assange told []The Sean Hannity Show [italics added –ed.].[]

    “So in other words, let me be clear,” Hannity asked, “Russia did not give you the Podesta documents or anything from the DNC?”

    “That’s correct,” Assange responded.

    Seth Rich, being a DNC I.T. staffer, if he did not provide the documents and emails to WikiLeaks himself, might have been in a position to know who did and how. We do know that the DNC denied the FBI access to the server that was allegedly hacked by the Russians. Now we have a possible link among Seth Rich, his death, and a dossier paid for in part by the DNC.”

    Issue #2: How many times has FBI/DOJ/WH pulled this crap on others? The committees should get the NSA audit, and ask whether 702 could take place without a their audit trail. And someone might was to execute a search warrant on FBI HQ – and see whether they have an LP perched on the roof.

    All of us here are (rightfully) screaming Sedition, Treason, firing Squad, etc.. I have to say (and I pray that I am wrong) that this will go nowhere. We Treepers can blog and tweet and comment ’til the cows come home, but I seriously fear that it will be business as usual at the end of the day.
    We waited all day, wondering what the big news was, and yes, we see it, we get it, we get all excited…here. Elsewhere? Nothing.
    I see “Jefferson’s name to be scrubbed from arch”, “No deal yet on DACA”, “DiFi has a cold”, “Kneeling players will be filmed”….Where’s the STORY? The BIG story?

      @Paintingjan. I totally agree with you, the air is out of the balloon. Guess we’ll just add this one to the list
      Fast and Furious… zip
      Benghazi… zip
      IRS… zip
      Hellerys emails.. zip
      Clinton Foundation. zip.
      Well at least maybe this will give ol’ rusterhead something to crow about for a few mins.

    Facts are stubborn things. Arguments can be countered. Not facts.

    Enough with the concern and chasing red herrings. Just hit the facts over and over. We all have time now, since we’re alienated from much of our families. But God and country is still our only course. It always has been. Comes with the territory!

    “On ****OCTOBER 26th 2016,**** Admiral Rogers informed the FISA Court of numerous unauthorized FISA-702(17) “About Query” violations.”
    ————————-
    ****SEPTEMBER 26, 2016******
    Brock et al. said “we need to start hurting people” by deploying NSA spy software, specifically FOXACID, on Reddit, Twitter, 4chan and 8chan posters, identifying their leaders, getting their IP addresses, doxing (obtain personal information of an Internet poster, including real name, known aliases, address, phone number, SSN, credit card number, etc.), tracking their online activities , and infecting their computers with “magic lanterns” — viruses that log the keystrokes of the infected computer. For all of which Brock said “we have full clearance. Word of God.”
