#FusionCollusion – Congress Takes 3-Prong Approach To Surround Corrupt Intelligence and Justice Officials…

There is an interesting dynamic unfolding with White Hats and Black Hats amid the story of how political forces within the DOJ and FBI conspired with Clinton allies in the 2016 presidential election, ie. “The Trump Operation”. [Hi Glenn, Jim, Andy]

Back-story – There are two central components:

♦First, corruption within the DOJ and FBI that included their use of unlawful use of FISA-702 exploits; and ♦second, how that intelligence information was extracted, passed along to those outside government, repackaged, and reconstituted into the “Steele Dossier”.  The finished, albeit sketchy, intelligence was later returned to the FBI to request lawful FISA court surveillance authority.  It is a circle of “intelligence laundering”.

We know the DOJ (National Security Division), and FBI (Counterintelligence Division), worked together on the enterprise.  This collaboration is where the insider “small group” participants assemble, intersect and ultimately redistribute themselves into the Mueller investigation with the help of Mueller’s adviser, FBI Chief Legal Counsel James Baker.

The Players, “Insiders”:

DOJ side: Asst. Attorney General Sally Yates, Asst. AG Head of National Security Division John P Carlin; Deputy Attorney Bruce Ohr; and legal liaison between Main Justice and FBI, Attorney Lisa Page.

FBI side: FBI Director Jim Comey; Asst. FBI Director Andrew McCabe; Director of Counterintelligence W.H. “Bill Priestap”; FBI Chief Legal Counsel James Baker; and lead FBI Counterintelligence Agent Peter Strzok.

Outsiders (The Dossier Crew):

Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson; the wife of Simpson, Mary B. Jacoby; a hired private contractor, familiar with CIA operations, Nellie Ohr (also wife of DOJ team insider Bruce Ohr); contracted former British MI6 Agent and head of Russia House, Christopher Steele (also attributed authorship of ‘Dossier’).

♦The basic enterprise seems pretty straightforward albeit corrupt as hell.  During a period of November 2015 through April 18th 2016, Justice Department political insiders and outside political contractors, including Fusion-GPS, accessed the NSA and FBI database using FISA-702(17) “About Queries”. They gathered information on candidate Hillary Clinton’s political opposition including Donald Trump campaign officials and affiliates.

This was essentially deep state political opposition research being conducted inside government for a considerable period of time. The information, gathered on Clinton’s  political opposition, was then weaponized against the candidacy of Donald Trump.

After being instructed by NSA Director Mike Rogers to conduct a full FISA audit, the NSA compliance officer began querying DOJ and FBI activity. As the compliance investigation closed in on the operation, FBI officials grew nervous. Eventually contractor access to ongoing FISA intelligence was blocked effective April 18th, 2016.

We discover this activity from testimony given by Director Rogers, and from Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats releasing a partially redacted FISC ruling in April 2017.

The FISC ruling details the events throughout 2016. When the full story is finally out, I think many people will understand why DNI Dan Coats made the unprecedented decision to release the court documents. The deliberate 2017 FISC transparency appears to have been part of a well developed anti-corruption strategy leading us all the way to today.

In the April 2017 ruling, the FISA Court (FISC) noted there was no reason to doubt the November 2015 through April 2016 “compliance error rate” was less severe than previous compliance error rates going back to 2012 (pg 82);  in essence, the abuse of FISA searches by FBI contractors was systemic over multiple years:

The unlawfully obtained FISA intelligence information appears to end up at a central collection unit, Fusion GPS.  There are many participating members within Fusion; however, the key figures in this specific enterprise are husband and wife Glenn Simpson and Mary Jacoby.   Mary Jacoby’s relationship with the Clintons’ goes all the way back to the Rose Law Firm.  Mary Jacoby also brings the “Dossier Trail” to the White House.

Fusion-GPS had been pushing a Russian-centric narrative for several months prior to being hired by Hillary Clinton, via her law firm Perkins Coie, in April of 2016.

After being contracted by Clinton, Fusion then hired Russian expert and CIA network ally Nellie Ohr, the wife of DOJ deputy Bruce Ohr.

All research indicates that Nellie Ohr then loosely contextualized the extracted data into a draft or written narrative/story-line that painted a false story of loose connections between candidate Donald Trump and Russian entities.

Ms. Ohr’s transcripts then get passed along to another Fusion contractor, Christopher Steele; a retired MI6 agent who  was also head of the intelligence gathering unit in the U.K. known as The ‘Russia House’.  Presumably the Fusion intelligence hand-off to Steele was to give the Ohr transcript some independent Chris Steele intelligence bona fides.

After an undetermined amount of back-and-forth transcript editing and memo assemblies, the joint collaboration between Fusion’s Nellie Ohr and Christopher Steele appears to have become the “Trump-Russia Steele Dossier”.  [There are several key indications within the finished Dossier that show Chris Steele did not author much of the content.]

Additionally, if you directly follow all media reporting on the dossier’s construct and origin, you’ll note the finished product was exclusively the assembled and proprietary work of Fusion-GPS, NOT Christopher Steele.

Even John McCain had to get his copy from Glenn Simpson at Fusion-GPS, despite McCain’s intermediary, David Kramer, meeting with Steele in England to discuss the content.  Glenn Simpson and Fusion-GPS are also facing numerous lawsuits as it relates to the content of the dossier.  Christopher Steele is refusing to answer questions except in court. The goal of gaining intelligence credibility for the dossier was a one-way street.

As Hillary Clinton and U.S. media now attempt to distance themselves from the Dossier, they cannot escape the fact that Clinton hired Glenn Simpson (Fusion-GPS) and ultimately they created the Dossier.

In short, Hillary Clinton cannot claim be hoodwinked by Russian disinformation within a document that she created.  Hence, Clinton has a dossier problem, and it will not go away.

However, that said, Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley completely predicted that “hoodwinked by the Russians” would be the fall-back position by Clinton and the FBI/DOJ insider team as it relates to their connection to the dossier content.

Accordingly, Senator Grassley and Senator Lindsey Graham sent the FBI a referral for criminal prosecution of Christopher Steele based on statements from FBI agents who attributed statements to Steele; those second-hand accounts conflict with known evidence about the dossier content.  –SEE HERE–  Grassley is calling the FBI’s bluff and demanding they investigate the horrible British fibber while knowing the fibber isn’t Steele – it’s the FBI.

♦ Because the scale of the Fusion/FBI/DOJ collusion story is so large in its overall impact, the congressional and Trump administration White Hats are conducting a three-pronged attack on the conspiracy teams.

They are working in concert:

(L-R) Bob Goodlatte, Chuck Grassley, Devin Nunes

•House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes is focused on the FISA abuse; and overall abuse from the larger intelligence community (FBI, CIA, ODNI and NSA). The FISA-702 angle is his leverage to reveal it.

•Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley is focused on the Dossier fraud; and the overall DOJ and FBI corruption.  The Steele Dossier is his leverage to reveal it.

•House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte is focused on the FBI and DOJ corruption; and his leverage is the Office of Inspector General, Michael Horowitz, and the year-long IG investigation that just turned over 1.2 million pages of investigative documents.

Nunes, Grassley and Goodlatte are working in concert, each with a specific attack strategy that targets the larger swamp defense.  Next week they begin the three-pronged attack we call “THE BIG UGLY“.

The Big Ugly is the wrecking ball that will shatter the front line swamp defenses and allow the draining to begin. The plan for this strategy was developed almost a year ago.

ODNI Dan Coats, NSA Director Mike Rogers, CIA Director Mike Pompeo, FBI Director Christopher Wray, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Inspector General Michael Horowitz and Asst. AG Rod Rosenstein have each played a significant role in preparing the landscape and armory for this conflict.

Congressional allies like Jim Jordan and Ron DeSantis will be working toward messaging and clearing the fog from the media.

It is not accidental that Ron DeSantis has asked Speaker Ryan to declassify everything…. only a week before Devin Nunes announces his request for the full house to see everything declassified and without redaction.  These are Big Ugly cannon shots into the heart of deception.

Chairman Devin Nunes, Chairman Chuck Grassley and Chairman Bob Goodlatte are now in position to use all the information provided by: Dan Coats (FISA), Mike Rogers (FISA), Michael Horowitz (DOJ IG report); and Rosenstein (DOJ/FBI reports); while leaving clean hands for FBI Christopher Wray and DOJ Jeff Sessions to watch from the hilltops and prepare to rebuild the entire justice department in the aftermath.

Additionally, guardian intelligence hero, NSA Mike Rogers is retiring; that will now allow him the ability to speak without restraint before any committee or hearing.  Chairman Bob Goodlatte is not running for re-election; cleaning up the DOJ will be his legacy initiative.

Relax and enjoy this upcoming week.

You’re worth it….

RESOURCES:  – The BIG UGLY

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.

IMV there is a civil war being fought right now in every division of the federal government. The actions of the deep state appear desperate. We are waiting for indictments – arrests – convictions. If this happens Trump will win by 20 million votes, hundreds to thousands of deep staters will lose their jobs- freedom-fortunes and pensions. What extremes they will attempt to prevent this is of very rational concern. IMV I hope the 1.2 million pages reveal wrong doing adequate to move these deep state criminals to a military trial. Then I will feel confident that justice will be served.

    I’m still not convinced there are all that many White Hats. I believe POTUS is one, as are some of his team. Beyond that, I’m still not convinced that anyone in Congress or many within the government are concerned with this because of its implication to the Republic, that everything they are doing is damage control, not with the intent of prosecuting anyone for the crimes committed, but to minimize the impact of the public release of that which they cannot control. For instance, is Devin Nunes truly abhorred at what he saw in the PDB, or just at the magnitude of damage control it is going to require to cover it up?

      To CleanhouseinDC: If what you say is true, then I fear that Pres. Trump may become a one-term president. I say this not because of anything that he’s done that would weaken his popularity within his base, but because the constant personal attacks against him from the Dem/Media Complex will eventually carry the day with the casual voter. The media’s hope is to make people tire of the constant crisis atmosphere and seek a way out to stop it by means of electing someone else. This is how we ended up with Clinton vs. Bush I and Obama vs. Bush II.
      I realize many of us in this forum place a lot of weight on the economic revival we are experiencing to make Pres. Trump a shoo-in for reelection, but people have short memories, especially those (a majority, unfortunately) who still see, hear and read only “mainstream” media sources, and all they’ll hear is… nothing by the omission of good economic news, negative spins on the economy and fake outrage such as “sh*hol”, “racist”, “sexual abuser”, “unstable” and other distractions.
      In my opinion, the best way to reinforce a Trump re-election victory is to “knee-cap” the media by going after the traitors in court and in the court of public opinion to show that the lying and the treason came from the Hillary camp and the Deep State, and that this conspiracy was enabled by the so-called mainstream media. It should be followed by building the wall, focused deportations and enactment of Merit-Based immigration legislation that will put a stop to the invasion we have witnessed for the past 20-30 years.

    I had assumed that these contractors had authorized use of the NSA system.
    SD used the word *exploit*
    Search “computer exploit define” and you get a whole lot of results all similar to this.

    “A computer exploit, or exploit, is an attack on a computer system, especially one that takes advantage of a particular vulnerability the system offers to intruders. Used as a verb, exploit refers to the act of successfully making such an attack.”

    So did the contractors actually hack into the NSA system and were the alterations that Adm Rodgers did to prevent a re-occurrence, in fact security patches against a vulnerability in the system.

    I’m wondering about all those exploits/backdoors that were stolen and ended up on the interweb, particularly sceptre and meltdown which did not have an easy cure.

    • NDA’ are as common as ticks in the woods. Even the lowliest secretary has to sign an NDA. I signed a bunch in my day because I frequently worked as a temp-to-perm employee – just sayin’. I signed one for my temp agency that covered my temp work, then signed another one for the company directly when I went to permanent employee status. Pretty much every single government contractor requires NDAs.

    This 3 pronged attack on the DOJ and FBI corruption is absolutely essential to expose it and to rout it out for the good of the nation.

    When these investigations are over and they hopefully expose and punish the nation’s corrupted top tier officials, attentions should turn to the MSM’s political corruption and anti Trump collusion because if they succeed in their efforts, it will be one of the main reasons why the U.S. will become a permanent one party state. The contrived hyperbolic firestorm against the alleged Trump comment and the collective saturation of the racist accusations were not individual reactions. They were carefully crafted almost identical coordinated attacks on Trump and simply calling them fake news is a euphemism. It is coordinated nation destroying political propaganda on a vast scale harmful to the nation. It charades as political opinion.

    The Constitution protects the honest reporter as much as the politically corrupted reporter who is pretending to be unbiased while spreading anti Trump hate and lies. But it would be in the nation’s interest to expose the names of the puppet masters of the MSM and the methods they use to collude and plot together to destroy Trump. They are not just individual fake news “reporters” or outlets that coincidentally attack Trump in exactly the same way across the entire MSM. Someone always leads and the pack follows in perfect lockstep which makes the fake news or accusations seem more reliable–and dangerous to a free nation.

      The Constitution does not protect criminal conspiracies, even if they attempt to hide behind the 1st Amendment. There are $ and intel trails that connect the bad deep state, contractors, and political hack actors with big enemedia. Once those $ and intel trails are fully documented and confirmed, seditious conspiracy charges, in addition to obstruction of justice charges should follow.

    The Trump-Russia operation is part of the story. This same small group of people have their fingerprints on the FBI’s/DOJ’s responses to the DNC e-mails, the Hillary e-mails, and the Clinton Foundation (maybe also Uranium One, although that investigation seems to have a somewhat different footprint). Now that some of these are being reopened and the IG is investigating, let’s hope the whole story comes out.

    The thing is, they believe they are serving the country. They generally believe Republicans are evil and Trump is an especially vile specimen. We all know people like this — well-credentialed from education and professional perspectives who are just rabid and committed Democrats. They might have had to cut a few corners, but if it is, in their minds, in the service of a higher cause, they can rationalize a little lawbreaking. Just like the Watergate Plumbers, they will go down thinking they did the right thing.

    I think the Obama people used the efforts of the conspirators and collaborated with them when needed, but largely didn’t direct the conspiracy. They didn’t have to. These folks were on a frolic of their own, using the intelligence apparatus of the United States in the service of the Democratic Party. The less that their superiors knew, the better.

      The entire FedGov apparatus has been in the process of weaponization against all but the wealthiest and most globally connected elites since at least late in Reagan’s second term. Poppy Boosh put his foot on the glowbullshit and uncontrolled immigration accelerator. Klintoon Krime Kartel just scooted into the driver’s seat and stomped the gas pedal harder, followed by Shrub’s fatuous continuation, adding Afghan and Iraq wars, (un)Patriot Act, centralizing/federalizing/militarizing domestic intel/LE agencies, but leaving most of the Klintonistas in place; setting up 0bunghole to bring on total turd world-style tyranny–the perfect pre-condition to complete subjugation under TPP etc. That, my friends, is how far we slid and how close we were to not being able to even attempt to stop it.

      At every turn, the above was guided from upper echelons of USA and international gummints and financial powers. The superiors knew what their cadres were doing–they ordered, facilitated, and rewarded it. Think about it–e.g., Strzok & Page–not competent enough fully to achieve even a totally set up goal, even with the full power of the entire USA and 5 eyes LE and intel infrastructures helping them. So how do young, relatively inexperienced, practically incompetent, and judgment-compromised personnel rise to their high levels? Kissing azz/predisposition as determined by their superiors. No ignorance passes given. They all need a short, fast, vertical ride on the hemp swing.

    From the New York Times, December 16, 2005:
    “Months after the Sept. 11 attacks, President Bush secretly authorized the National Security Agency to eavesdrop on Americans and others inside the United States to search for evidence of terrorist activity without the [FISA] court-approved warrants ordinarily required for domestic spying, according to government officials.

    Under a presidential order signed in 2002, the intelligence agency [NSA] has monitored the international telephone calls and international e-mail messages of hundreds, perhaps thousands, of people inside the United States without warrants over the past three years in an effort to track possible ”dirty numbers” linked to Al Qaeda, the officials said. The agency, they said, still seeks warrants to monitor entirely domestic communications.”

    After a week of deliberation and consultation with 3 attorneys (who are also anti-NAIS activists), the decision was made to contact the American Civil Liberties Union…
    Technically it should have stopped there, as the ACLU does not normally go after a private corporation in matters like this. But the ACLU believed the whole story ‘stunk of censorship’ and did not buy the State Dept of Ag’s excuse…

    My State Dept of Ag also provided the expo organizers with numerous e-mails that I had written about NAIS – going back an entire year. I saw these e-mails from our State Dept of Ag with my own eyes. It was then that I realized they are actually tracking me on the internet.[…]”

      Full text of “FISA Act sec 702”

      I was under the impression that ‘retroactive’ was only good for 48 hours. That means if they were grabbing Trump Team communications from April on, an OCTOBER ‘warrant’ is pretty useless as a CYA.

      “Title III requires Federal, state and, other government officials to obtain judicial authorization for intercepting “wire, oral, and electronic” communications such as telephone conversations and e-mails. It also regulates the use and disclosure of information obtained through authorized wiretapping. 18 U.S.C. §§ 2516-18.
      An exception to the requirement that government obtain a warrant before intercepting covered communications is provided where:

      ♦️ “any investigative or law enforcement officer, specially designated by the Attorney General, the Deputy Attorney General, the Associate Attorney General, or by the principal prosecuting attorney of any State or subdivision thereof acting pursuant to a statute of that State…

      ♦️ reasonably determines that an emergency situation exists that involves

      1. immediate danger of death or serious physical injury to any person,
      2. conspiratorial activities threatening the national security interest, or
      3. conspiratorial activities characteristic of organized crime

      that requires a wire, oral, or electronic communication to be intercepted before an order authorizing such interception can, with due diligence, be obtained, and

      ♦️ there are grounds upon which an order could be entered under this chapter to authorize such interception.”

      In such an emergency situation, the Federal government may begin intercepting communications, provided “an application for an order approving the interception is made in accordance with this section within forty-eight hours after the interception has occurred, or begins to occur.” In this situation, if the warrant is ultimately denied, the intercepted communications are treated as having been obtained in violation of Title III. 18 U.S.C. § 2518(7).”https://it.ojp.gov/PrivacyLiberty/authorities/statutes/1284

      There was no warrant. The courts probably weren’t apprised of the 702 queries after they initially came under review. By mid-2016, NSD and FBI counter-intel had probably exported/downloaded so much intel from NSA, they didn’t even have to query NSA–they could run the queries on their own, illegal, massive subsets of sigint data.

    The NSA Compliance Officer must have audited all 702 requests for a set time period. These must surely all identify the requestor, as an individual and that individual’s organization. Suggestion for Nunes and Grassley: require testimony under oath and in private from the NSA’s Compliance Officer who did the review; demand access to the data that officer assembled.

    If the NSA’s Compliance Officer audited 702 requests and found abuse by “contractors” or anyone else, what was done to the abusers, other than cut off future access? Why were there no criminal referrals? I cannot believe that NSA let anyone violate their rules without severe repercussions. What procedures were in place to prevent 702 search abuse, to monitor for abuse, stop abuse, and punish violators? Someone failed big time, either through incompetence or deliberately. Who?

At that time, before the conventions and election, it would seem likely that they would not limit their searches to just Trump, but other republicans and Sanders. Is there a way for the white hats to get all the actual queries? If there exists queries of other possible opponents made during the time frame from November 2015 up to the conventions, even if any of such information was never used, that would be dispositive and destroy any “hoodwinked” defense, or for that matter any defense

    I still can’t figure out what the DOJ-NSD FBI-CID GCHQ and whatever various contractors were looking for in the Trump Campaigns communications. Dirt?

I know what they say they were looking for, collusion with Russians, but we really know that’s a fairy tale. Surveillance in your political opponent is valuable, sure, you’d rather have it than not, but it’s not guaranteed to help you win an election. Not like a setup, a fake scandal, or even an assassination. That’s why the surveillance to me isn’t as big a deal as the Russian Setup with fake Russians approaching the Trump team with bogus offers of Collusion. The Dossier, the investigation, the allegations, it tarnishes Trump, but no more than thrle revolving charges of racism, sexism, mentally unfit, etc… It fills a Rachel Maddow show one hour a night, but it doesn’t get Trump out of office. Ultimately, they needed to frame him with fake evidence, and it appears they were not able to do so this entire operation was basically a failure

      Your words – “they needed to frame him with fake evidence”
      The surveillance is what initiated, or actually created, the fake evidence.

    This story is BIGGER than Watergate, yet the same media personalities who reported on every nuance, want nothing to do with this one. How is this possible? The only explanation is that the rot has set in and America is being run by traitors. Trump may be a speedbump in their take-over, but in the end, the evil Left will prevail.
