Questioning Assumptions – Revelations of Key FBI Officials Leaking To WaPo Should Cause Review of Underlying Media Narratives…

With the latest information revealing that FBI Agent Peter Strzok and DOJ/FBI Attorney Lisa Page were specifically leaking to their media sources to shape the underlying story of their political efforts, everything presented by the recipients of those leaks should now be questioned.

Page and Strzok were the “sources” for stories written by Devlin Barrett of the Washington Post.

As such, obviously the network of Page and Strzok’s professional colleagues, would also be considered part of a grouping of people who would benefit from specific leaks intended to shape the stories.

One of those initial stories was a December 2nd, 2017,  WaPo outline describing Page and Strzok against the backdrop of the DOJ Inspector General Horowitz investigation.

The Washington Post presented the story of Lisa Page and Peter Strzok having an affair to the world.

That presentation became the underlying assumption for all reporting that followed (despite the lack of supporting evidence).  That WaPo story (narrative), “The affair” was written by Devlin Barrett, who we now know was in direct contact with Page and Strzok.

As with all new information, all assumptions –driven by that WaPo original story– should be carefully reconsidered.

As an example: were Peter Strzok and Lisa Page actually having an affair?  Or, was the “affair” simply an effective narrative, entirely constructed to describe the scope of their communication and cover-up a larger and far more looming truth, a bigger conspiracy?

Amid a vastly growing release of text messages, there’s nothing to indicate a relationship between Lisa Page and Peter Strzok based on anything except collaboration to politicize their jobs to the benefit of Hillary Clinton and against all her political  opposition.

For several years CTH has been pointing out how the larger U.S. intelligence community has a pattern of leaking specific information to specific outlets.

Information from Justice Department leaks and the Intelligence Community (writ large), generally appear in the Washington Post, New York Times, NBC, and -depending on content- the Wall Street Journal.  Information from State Department leaks generally flow to CNN, CBS and ABC.

Each of the initiating media reports of the leaks are then cited by their peer group: ‘media reports on media reports’. It is a pattern that has become transparently visible for those who follow politics and media.

Now that you know Strzok and Page were Barrett’s sources, re-read this story about what was going on inside the FBI in October 2016. – SEE HERE – “FBI In Internal Fued Over Hillary Clinton Probe”:

October 30th, 2016 – The surprise disclosure that agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation are taking a new look at Hillary Clinton’s email use lays bare, just days before the election, tensions inside the bureau and the Justice Department over how to investigate the Democratic presidential nominee. (read more)

Additionally, and perhaps more disturbingly, against the backdrop of officials within the FBI and DOJ having an agenda to protect their internal allies, it is also important to note that some leak efforts might actually be using the media to protect their team.

As an example, a Justice Department official may know one of their aligned colleagues might be scheduled for questioning by congressional oversight.  The insider, perhaps from a different sub-department within the DOJ, would have knowledge of the information provided to congress -and- desire to prepare their colleague by leaking the content of the information they have provided.

Recently, and specifically because of the explosive nature of the larger construct of the conspiracy within the Justice Department targeting of candidate Donald Trump, we noted the possibility of this happening. –SEE HERE– This stemmed from the original January 8th, 2018, Hill report of Page and Strzok as likely ‘leakers‘.

[…] What that individual series of text messages from Lisa Page highlights is how far she was willing to go to shape DOJ/FBI investigative action to the benefit of her favorite political candidate.

Lisa Page and Peter Strzok were not only willing to manipulate their official investigative duty to the benefit of Hillary Clinton, but they were also willing to leak information to the media in an effort to shape the narrative around their investigative duties.

Both Page and Strzok are scheduled to testify to the House Intelligence Committee *VERY* soon. Like, within a matter of days.

Given the revelation(s) within the text messaging today, and the evidence therein that proves the politicization of their offices, it is highly likely *NOW* they will plead the fifth and refuse to answer questions.

Which immediately makes me wonder about the motive behind whomever gave that text messaging information to John Solomon and Sara Carter.

Were those specific text messages, which clearly prove Lisa Page was leaking to the media, INTENTIONALLY given to Solomon and Carter because someone on “The Hill” was trying to warn Page about known evidence against her?

I don’t expect that Sara Carter would reveal her sourcing on this. However, I would WARN HER, *strongly* that there’s a serious possibility she is being used by her SOURCE to dilute damage against the “small group” co-conspirators.

Those who have followed CTH closely will note my historic suspicions toward a strong likelihood that Sean Hannity’s favorite journalists are being handled by DC control agents who know how manipulate media people. (link)

This does not mean that all media are doing the bidding of the corrupt officials knowingly. Some might be relaying information thinking they are just breaking exclusive news, without actually considering they are helping corrupt insiders to get dangerous information to their ideological allies in a scheme to assist them. [Not everyone has the benefit of HAM radios]

However, for the reassessment of all Devlin Barrett’s narrative engineering (reporting), we can be certain he is more than a willing ally to the corrupt group of FBI and DOJ insiders.

How do we know this?

Well, one of the brutally obvious stories was national security journalist Devlin Barrett writing a story specifically using “sources” to explain the context of the Page/Strzok message about untraceable phones:

(Twitter Link and WaPo Story Link)

By Devlin Barrett – Two senior FBI officials who texted each other about President Trump and Hillary Clinton relied on work phones to try to hide their romance from a spouse and made the bureau’s probe of Clinton’s private email server their cover story for being in such close contact, according to people familiar with the matter.

The two officials, senior FBI lawyer Lisa Page and senior counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok, are the subjects of an internal investigation that has roiled the FBI and emboldened its Republican critics who have accused the bureau of political bias. Had Page and Strzok used personal phones instead, people close to case say, it’s unlikely their text messages would have come to the FBI’s attention.

The texts, a trove of which were released by the Justice Department this week, have raised questions about the FBI’s investigation into Clinton’s use of a private email server while she was secretary of state and special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s probe of whether any Trump associates coordinated with Russian officials to interfere with the presidential election. Page and Strzok, who have declined to comment, were involved in both.  (read more)

In this example, and thinking about the approach of a willing media journalist helping his FBI and DOJ allies, there’s a really odd dynamic to use the subject of the article as the likely source of information on the subject of the article.

According to people familiar with the matter”, is likely to be Peter Strzok and Lisa Page themselves.

That’s perhaps the most obvious example of narrative engineering ever.  Again, “sources say” now appears to be reporter Devlin Barrett writing an article based on direct information from Lisa Page and Peter Strzok who were the subjects of the story.

Obviously they would have a vested legal interest in shaping/spinning that story in a very specific direction, and it appears Devlin Barrett was more than willing to assist.

Knowing that DOJ/FBI Attorney Lisa Page and FBI Agent Peter Strzok were key sources for Barrett’s stories at the Wall Street Journal and Washington Post all assumptions based on this reporting should be questioned.

Again, President Trump was prescient when he tweeted:

      Remember these are selective texts that the DOJ releases to congress and congress releases to the public…so maybe they don’t release the more salacious texts.

      What is odd is why would they if it is them who leaked that they were lovers also leak that they were using burner phones in the same article.

      Another thing in the texts reads as if the reporter was a source for their group in the FBI, maybe it wasn’t them who leaked they were lovers but someone else in their group in the FBI, who was pissed about the texts, like his boss Bill or her boss McCabe.

      Tell you the truth I don’t understand if the IG reviewed the texts and found them so bad that he told Mueller ( if they did nothing illegal why tell Mueller) why wasn’t congress informed too, and why did IG stay quite along with the new FBI director for over 4 months and then finally it was leaked to press. Not told to congress.

      So either the IG is not on the up and up or the FBI Director, we know Rosenstein isn’t, who also knew.

            – The Story Behind Trump Eating the Family Dog
            – Does Trump Have a History of Eating Dogs?

        2 years? Quadruple that and add a zero.

        Quite a number of years ago I noticed that in news stories where I had personal knowledge of the subject matter, the journalists clearly both didn’t understand what they were writing/talking about as well as missing a lot of information essential for understanding the story. I mentioned this to a few friends and family members, and they said, in essence, “Y’know? You’re right. When I already know the story, the news account is crap.”

        Extrapolating, it is a reasonable conclusion that most/all news accounts are crap and have been for a long time.

        What we may have been seeing more of in the last 20 years or so is that the crap has become deliberately misleading crap, designed to make the readers leap to incorrect crap conclusions.

And speaking of the witness protection program, and understanding the FISC is a federal court upon which an interagency FRAUD was perpetrated, I wonder what function could the U.S. Marshals have in this scenario? Will the U.S. Marshals simply be executing the eventual arrest warrants?

    Could this just be part of Hillary’s disaster plan, implemented when the ‘heat’ got to a certain level? If others have planned for so long on the white hat side, why would there not be a defensive plan to fall back on for the black hats; maybe they haven’t updated it for a decade or two, but something about this is too neat. I have no doubt that HRC would throw BHO under the bus…

      I think Hillary vs Obama is a Mexican standoff. They are handcuffed to each other because of the dirt they have on each other. If one goes under the bus, they both go under the bus.

        here’s a different source:

        A former Justice Department prosecutor sought to sell sealed lawsuits brought by whistleblowers to the targets of pending investigations, according to a Washington Post report.

        The lawyer, Jeffrey Wertkin, gathered up the documents before he left the Justice Department in April 2016. He then went to work for an influential D.C. law firm, Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld, where he hoped to drum up clients by offering to sell the sealed complaints and his services to defend against them.

          They better make an example out of that dude. That really gives you an indication of the type of low life’s that have infiltrated the Department of Justice. The fact that he was arrested a year ago and we didn’t hear squat about it is troubling. Justice’s first priority appears to be covering their dirt.

            DOJ is the key to this for sure. HOLDER weaponized it from the moment he walked in the door.

            DOJ smart lawyers are directing the flames onto the FBI. They want it to end there, and not get back to either Obama or Hillary. If the trail goes to DOJ, BOOM. Powder keg of corruption.

              Seems likely that the place has been rotting for decades, at least. Perhaps Holder was the first to harness it for direct political use, but I’m inclined to think it long predates him.

                I dunno, but it seems to me that AG/DOJ has probably been politicized long before Holder arrived on the scene. However, Holder took it to another level and I believe he had the bright idea of embeds to carry on long after he was gone.

            You know Mike, you are so right. If this country actually had real,honest journalists or news reporting this article would have been on the front pages of every newspaper in America. It would have been repeated thousands of times on every news network on TV. Instead, we get Stormy Daniels and two scoops of ice cream.

    I think it was important for the Strzok/Page texts released by Sara Carter to get out there, to give the Congressional investigators some backup, that this wasn’t just a plan to discredit Mueller.
    If Strzok and Page are guilty, and I believe they certainly are, they aren’t going to tell congress anything anyway.

    If they take the fifth, all we are losing is a potential charge of perjury to congress. Like HRC did, Holder did, Koskenin, Klapper, Comey etc. Only Holder was held in crim. contempt and he was not charged.

    I would be surprised if Strzok/Page haven’t been interviewed by the IG weeks ago. Also if they take the fifth I would think their security clearances would be taken away. If they don’t want to cooperate, charge them. There is no doubt they leaked classified information about the most important investigation in their careers that had national security implications. I also believe, based on the 302s that Strzok is so worried about, that he obstructed his own investigation by the way it was conducted. One count for each act obstruction, each leak, etc could add up to a lot of prison time.
    It is time to play hard ball. Mueller certainly is.

There isn’t any affection or teasing of flirting, or pet names, or ANYTHING that makes them sound like the dreariest of people–total true believer ideology and self absorbed careerist looked for that next rung up the ladder.

    Interesting analysis by Sundance of no affair between the conspirators. Their multiple text messages must be re-analyzed with that fact in mind. In my simple opinion she appeared to be the Alpha participant encouraging him to coordinate the nefarious bidding of the DOJ. Or, am I missing something?

    At what point do we stop calling the information given to journalists by deep state, crooked fed gov “leaks”? Is it “leaking” if the info “leaked” is known to be false at the time of the “leak” by the “leakers”?

    They are feeding the media, partnering with the media, using the media, planting stories, controlling the narrative or guiding the media or all of the above! These aren’t leaks of information. This is purposeful disinformation and it is plotted, purposeful “leaking” — telling journalist the narrative and info that they want for a specific affect.

    With the planting of stories, feeding a specific narrative to the press to knowingly fool the American public, how is that not an actual conspiracy and true obstruction of justice?

  47. Why didn’t Devlin report that PAGE and STRZOK claimed texting on work phone was done to throw wife off scent of their adultery instead of claiming it was “sources” who told him? Devlin was accomplice to deceit to make it sound like someone else was corroborating the poor lovers’ story….i.e. corroborating the COVER UP.
