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!

♦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.

    How long has Fusion GPS been an FBI contractor: a while our just in time to do his dirty deed for Hillary? If he is a long time contractor, how long had he been accessing the NSA database for oppo research and against which candidates? If Simpson’s access to the database was inappropriate, who allowed it or put their password in for him?

    What is missing in this entire discussion is the Democrat/Progressive response to all this. When the facts become undeniable what will they do? They will blame the victim! They will embrace the Strzok line. Trump (not President Trump) brought it all on himself by being Trump.
    This will go over well with the third of the country who are willfull ‘proles’. One third of us, including the #nevertrumpers will be outraged, or pretend to be outraged. The remaining third stand to be swayed one way or another.
    I don’t trust even those who comment, or refrain from commenting, on this website. I have no vested interest in sending anyone to jail. I do have a vested interest in preserving my G-d-given freedoms in this country. Over the years we have been careful to maintain a valid passport. You never know what can happen. Now it turns out there is no place to go.
    The 2018 eletions will decide whether we live free or not. I’m sure that President Trump is working overtime to ‘weaponize’ all the astounding revelations yhat Sundance has uncovered for us. I’m troubled that Conservatives, Tea-party Americans and the whole gamut of citizens abhorred by the doings of the Obama years do not appreciate the gift that G-d has given us in the person of Donald j. Trump. The proof is I find no other website that expresses appreciation for his talents. Ego-driven commentators are always regretting his tweets, questioning his motives and giving advice as to what he must do to preserve his shakey Presidency. It is common to hear that Trump is his own worst enemy.
    My point is ‘Remember the 2018 Election’ before you have cause to regret it! We MUST have a Republican majority in the House and the Senate, and a majority of those Republicans MUST be pro-Trump.

      “When the facts become undeniable what will they do?”

      That’s one of the main purposes of having libcult hegemony over 99% of Big Media. No matter how egregious the crimes or how easily those crimes may be for anyone to understand, Big Media will do their utmost to obfuscate and muddy the waters as much as possible, attempting to creating doubt where none should exist and proffer ofttimes nonsensical excuses for inexcusable criminality. (“Its about sex, ad nauseum)

      Big Media uses a mixture of selective, hyperintensive focus on things they believe will help their fellow travelers (whose criminality has been uncovered) and another selective, hyperintensive focus on things they believe reflect badly on their political enemies.

      The Truth has no place in any of this. Nor do ethics or logic. This is propaganda pure and simple, and the simpler the better.

      “The remaining third stand to be swayed one way or another.”

      That third of the electorate are what I like to call the smartest idiots in the world. They believe that they have the ability to divine the actual truth from the scripted and coordinated lies of Big Media by “reading between the lines”.

      But they can’t do it. No one can. You cannot make yourself aware of things that have been hidden from you by somehow “diving” those things from carefully manicured lies. That’s why it is so critically important to have real media (Like CTH). The only down side to all of this is that it requires you to invest the time it takes to make yourself fully informed, and a full third of the electorate will NEVER invest a single second in becoming properly informed. They believe they are smart enough to glean truth from thoroughly scrubbed and sanitized lies.

      On the other hand, the Big Media Machinery of Deception and Control has become almost ubiquitous in daily life in every western country, so the difficulty comes in NOT imbibing their deceptive swill, because it surrounds us all like a poisonous cloud.

      At this point, I don’t see anything being done. Sessions is on a crusade against pot, and has recused himself from the rest of his job, and that leaves Trump enemies, like Rod Rosenstein and basically everyone at the FBI, in power.

      Those people aren’t going to do anything to hurt themselves, so nothing will get done.

      The only real investigations going on in Washington right now are against Trump.
      Posting evidence of DNC/DoJ/FBI criminality on a website doesn’t count as anything, no matter how damning it is.

      Trump brought all this on himself with this refusals to fire Obama holdovers, his tolerating of Session’s inactivity, and even bring in people like Wray and Rosenstein who are his enemies.

        True, communications via amateur radio don’t automatically leave a paper trail but they must be, as per FCC regulation, conducted in plain text, whether oral or written. Codes and ciphers are expressly prohibited. And I would not care to bet that the NSA doesn’t already extensively point its Big Ears at those bands.

        Nellie Ohr is the holder of a Technician class amateur radio license, which means she was required to pass a written exam on technical theory, practice and regulations, and sign her application attesting to her acceptance of applicable federal regulations. If she executed that application with the intent to conduct communications in using obscuring language and meaning, including previously-arranged code words, it would appear to constitute a fraudulent application.

Bad enough if they find real dirt, but even if they don’t, they just make something up. Could Trump knowing about it and fixing it be the reason for the Congress sudden cooperation?

        :0) Yeah ARW, I’ve gone back and forth as well…I think that I’m more willing to accept the premise because we’ve been told Trump’s lawyers are talking with Mueller’s office and because Mueller’s footprints were actually walking on the same investigative line as Horowitz’s & Roger’s prior to Trumps election.

She clerked under Patricia M Weld whose a member of the Privacy Civil Liberties Advisory Board (Obama pretty much eliminated the decades old Presidents Intel Advisory Board). Weld is a globalist (and friend Soros) who’d have no use for FISA regulations… Weld is Chair of Soros’ Open Society Institute, a member of the Soros funded Criminal Court Tribunal on Yugoslavia and more. Krass’ husband and parents are interesting.

    This is an eye-opening talk given by Krass and Carlin at the Aspen Institute where Carlin now has a top job…

    Came here to post this: I just checked the /pol board at 4Chan and this article is on page 1 !!! Actually, this is a continuation thread from the original thread, “Fusion Collusion”

    Way to go Sundance & Treepers– great research on a VERY important topic. Keep up the good work!

    I am going to link the 4Chan thread to this comment– but I feel that I need to issue the following:

    WARNING: People with sensitive sensibilities or those who are all out of eye bleach–please click on the link at your own risk. The /pol board is one of the last free bastions on the internet so the comments on /pol threads can be foul, offensive and shocking but if you keep an open mind, you can usually find some interesting perspectives–especially when the hive mentality is triggered and they all sync up and work together in a swift manner to solve a problem/question. If I were writing a dissertation for a sociology PhD–I would write it on /pol.

    OPERATION FULSOME

    This appears to be the Obama administrations use of surveillance of American citizens on American soil by foreign intelligence agencies to get around FISC restrictions. Susan Rice signed this on behalf of the President of the United States, so there is no denying that Obama knew about the foreign surveillance begun on candidate Donald Trump.

    The analyses that Sundance posts are cogent and easy to follow, despite their complexity. They are also having an impact, to judge from the number of other websites that are, with or without attribution, making use of his work. However, it seems to me that there is a kind of tunnel vision at work here, in the sense that we are so heavily focused on matters of law and the pursuit of justice that we too often ignore the naked realities of politics. There is an election coming up in November. The Dems want to keep Mueller’s investigation going ad nauseam, and at all costs block the appointment of a second Special Counsel. It is in the best interest of Repubs to close out the Mueller probe, and hold prolonged, Watergate style hearings that consume the summer and fall. The following bare bones history of off year elections, beginning with the Eisenhower election of 1954, should make this clear:
    1954: Senate D +2, House D +18
    1962: Senate D +3, House R +5
    1966: Senate R +3, House R +47
    1970::Senate R +1, Conserv +1, House D +12
    1978: Senate R +3, House R +15
    1982: Senate D+7, House D +27
    1990: Senate D +1, House D +7
    1994: Senate R +8, House R +54
    2002: Senate R +2, House R +8
    2010: Senate R +6, House R +63

    So, the norm is for the party out of power to turn out its base, and we have seen this in each special election since Trump’s inauguration. Conversely, the party in power has a problem with complacency. It was predictable, therefore, that the Republican advantage in the special elections would (and did) fall off dramatically. So, how to avoid a Dem wave election in the House come November? There are three outliers here, the elections of 1962, 1990, and 2002. In 1962, Kennedy benefited from personal popularity, a strengthening economy, and a “don’t rock the boat” mentality on the part of the electorate, which was still spooked by the Cuban missile crisis. In 2002, this same “don’t rock the boat” mentality was at work in the post 9/11 universe. In 1990, Bush benefited from a strong economy, which also limited losses in 1954 and 1970.

    Tactically, our objective should be to limit our losses in the House to somewhere between 10 and 16 seats. To get there, we need the President to keep pushing policies that expand economic opportunity, to continue his hard line approach with regard to immigration … and we need the IG’s report to come out in the Spring and serve as a springboard for congressional hearings that keep the abuse of power by the DOJ, the FBI, and the Obama administration in the forefront of the public’s consciousness in the fall. Let justice be served, but at a time of our choosing, and let if be served in a way that keeps the Dems as far away from political power as possible.

      I made a point up above that this is not a normal election. I wouldn’t tell President Trump what to do. I trust him to do the max in his own brilliant manner. I do not trust the voters, and if we do not do the max this time all is lost. As I said in my previous post, “We MUST have a Republican majority in the House and the Senate, and a majority of those Republicans MUST be pro-Trump.”

    There are many reasons all this is not coming out from the Justice Dept. yet. We have addressed some of them… finding the “fixers,” getting the Administration’s appointments in place, etc.

    One that has been mentioned but we seem to forget about is the need to slowly inform Americans. Q mentions often the need to talk to others, even those who don’t like Trump (and whether or not you think Q is authentic or not, the message is spot on).

    Someone mentioned on the Presidential thread I believe that they are not finding support for POTUS mentioned on other blogs, that the focus is on pieces of the puzzle instead. Sundance is doing a superb job of walking and chewing gum at the same time over at his twitter account. His number of followers is increasing as are the tweets from folks who have just found him.

    I am digressing… was up most of the night and not thinking clearly. Bottom line… we need to first of all surround POTUS and his administration with prayer, with good wishes, with good thoughts. Let me remind you that the Deep State is indeed DEEP… it covers the globe! POTUS is subjected daily if not hourly to negative reporting from the MSM. Unfortunately, too many still listen to their garbage. At least the people under the Soviet Union knew that every word that came from their TV was propaganda. Even the brightest of the bright seem to forget that here and go chasing their shiny objects hour after hour.

    This weekend, remind your pastors to pray for our POTUS, our nation. Ask prayer groups to pray. Speak up for POTUS every opportunity you get. If nothing else, pray for guidance through these dark days.

    Deep State is throwing everything it can at POTUS…its very existence is threatened by POTUS and what he stands for; they will say and do anything to destroy him.

    God bless President Trump. God bless all of us here. God bless Sundance and his light that never ceases to find a piece of the puzzle.

      It isn’t just Fusion GPS that is a contractor or Proprietary Company of the CIA. Fusion gets involved in the elections of foreign countries whenever they are hired as election consultants by those regimes. This puts CIA in the position of “meddling” in those foreign elections. Another player like this is PAUL MANAFORT, who escaped the FBI’s white collar investigators all through the last 20 years or so, probably because MANAFORT is CIA, and possibly that is how the PODESTA brothers prospered, as CIA contractors or outright Proprietaries.

    To be frank, I’m po’d about this not being the top story for any news outlet, except Hannity basically.
    I just cannot imagine that this news isn’t being spread far and wide. I agree with several mentions above, that it won’t lead the news cycle until someone is arrested and charged, but I fear that what they have done will end up being an outrage, but no charges due to some legal loopholes. Even so, I think most Americans believe there is a possibility that government is storing all communications, but until it all comes out about how 702 queries are being run by 3rd parties accessing already stored US citizen’s information – will Americans really KNOW their communications are ALL being captured and stored, just awaiting any government employee, or 3rd party yahoo to access it… legally or illegally… and then maybe they’ll be as po’d as we already are about this sham.

  29. You guys are doing a really outstanding job in your reporting of this story. However the suggestion that information from FISA about requests became the contents of the Steele dossier gives undue credence to the garbages document. Much of Steele’s dossier information appears to have come from his/their Russian contacts: rumors and made-up stories. If the illegal wiretaps had actually found anything of substance we can guarantee that would have been used against Trump by now.

      The illegal wiretaps were used to give some bit of truth that could make the falsehood look real.
      An example is Trump’s Attorney Michael Cohen going to the Czech Republic or Prague to meet with Kremlin officials. A Michael Cohen did go to the Czech Republic but it was NOT Trump’s Attorney Michael Cohen who was actually at a college with his son talking to a baseball coach. However that tidbit could easily be spun by the media to look damning.

      They did the same with Carter Page.

      Remember the media does not deal in truth they deal in OPTICS and Psych–Ops. And it WORKS! Herman Cain and Judge Moore getting accused of by women who disappear right after the election.

    On Video: Former CIA director John Brennan admitting that he instigated the entire intelligence operation re: Russia Trump. He proceeds to tell the committee that in July 2016 he instigated a multi agency operation and that he keep then President Obama well informed.

    So why should we believe Brennan (above)
    “Comey surely assumed that Brennan has put Reid up to writing the letter—and even worse, he knew that his counterpart at Langley was talking about it with *their boss*. Last August, the White House began convening high-level meetings to discuss Russian interference in the 2016 elections. It began, according to a June 23, 2017, Washington Post article, when “an envelope with extraordinary handling restrictions arrived at the White House. Sent by courier from the CIA, it carried “eyes only” instructions that its contents be shown to just four people: President Barack Obama and three senior aides.””

    CIA has apparently farmed out much of its work to a hand full of companies. Care to guess who’s on this list of U.S. intel contractors? Fusion GPS. Anyone think that the Former CIA director John Brennan did not know what his contractors at Fusion GPS were doing?

    As we know the FBI was working with CIA Contractor Fusion GPS to construct the FISA application and with unsupervised access to the FISA Database.

    So, I am reading all of this to mean that Obama was not only aware of this Dossier but was apparently getting reports. The only kind reports that make since are those on its progress.

    There is no longer any doubt in my mind that Fusion GPS is a CIA Proprietary Company, and Glenn Simpson is a CIA contract agent. That was known in the intelligence community, and that is why the FBI hired them as contractors. This has far-reaching ramifications about other “contractors” of these spy agencies. Did the SOUTHERN POVERTY LAW CENTER have access to FiSA material? Did they abuse it as well?

    I have to include with the above comment the likelihood that CIA provided much of the initial investment to create Fusion GPS. The $12 million (estimated) that Hillary Clinton put into this operation did not just “fund the dossier.” Probably less than $1 million did that. The rest might have gone to pay off CIA-linked journalists in this country, and who knows what other schemes? It isn’t like this bunch was doing Clinton all that many favors. After all, they most likely slipped the DNC emails to Wikileaks to create that aspect of the “Mission Impossible” type false-reality scenario the “too-clever-by-half” operatives were creating. This is a reasonable suspicion since they have now changed the timeline from Carter Page’s trip triggering “Trump-Russia” to a boozed-up Papadopolous being the trigger of the fake investigation. The Wikileaks emails were stolen by CROWDSTRIKE, another firm hired for the DNC by Perkins Coie, whose Washington offices have their share of “former” CIA operatives on the payroll.

    Thank God for your efforts. I was in college during Watergate which was nothing compares to this. A few misguided men did a stupid unnecessary break in to gather information on the political opposition. Nixon knew nothing about it but foolishly tried to cover for his friends which was criminal. Ridiculous after he took 49 of 50 states when he was elected President.

    The Obama administration weaponizing the DOJ (Department of Justice) & the FBI to stop Donald Trump from being elected is the worst political corruption I’ve seen in my life. This is what happens in Cuba, Venezuela, North Korea et al…not. America. We non chalantly dismiss Hillary’s “rigging” the democrat primary. We let Obama be the first President to assassinate an unindicted American citizen living in a country we were not at war with (Yemen) in 2011. He changed his name,became a Muslim & alleged terrorist recruiter in Yemen but waa still an American citizen. Obama didn’t insist this American citizen be captured & given his guaranteed right to a trial like he did so many actual terrorists caught in combat & taken to Guantanamo Bay. He sent a drone strike & assassinated him & a subject with him.

    The WAG THE Dog fabricated Russian “dossier” of the alleged Trump collusion with Russia, confuses many & distracts Americans from the “at any cost” destruction of President Trump. There are many moving parts. The “deep state” is VERY DEEP. The SWAMP is crowded with slithering SNAKES. The criminals involved MUST BE BROUGHT TO JUSTICE.

    TOO MANY have fought & died for this nation. My father, 3 brothers & every uncle fought for this country for liberty, & justice for all. This corruption started by the Obama needs to see people locked up. The rank & file in the FBI & DOJ aren’t the issue. It’s the top tier who need to spend time in a 6 by 10 cell for a LONG TIME.

    Thank you for all you’re doing & reporting. May God keep that hedge of protection around you and your loved ones! DON’T STOP DOING WHAT YOU’RE DOING!!!
