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:

          Sundance 1/18/18 There are voices like Sara Carter and Dan Bongino who are rushing to the motive behind the story and playing directly into the hands of the Swamp Dwellers who use professional obfuscation (the Potomac two-step) to avoid accountability.

              Lol. Sara was the one who was used to float the trial balloon that the FBI/DOJ/CLINTON were motivated by patriotism to investigate Trump because they’d been tricked by the Russians into sincerely believing Trump was a traitor, working with Putin. She said thats what her sources were telling her. What a totally laughable assertion but I noted Trish Regan at FOX pushing the same narrative. Q warned of previously trusted sources now being disinfo/misinfo and specifically mentioned SC. She’s probably too naive to realize how she’s being used to con people who were trained to trust her because she always seemed to have good intel in the past. I suspect she was built up to be useful later when lies needed to be believed.

    Always keep in mind, when a source leaks an “exclusive” to one reporter, there is ALWAYS an ulterior motive, even if the leaked information is true.

    Every leak has multiple consequences, and it is not clear what the primary motive was. For example: TheHill leak to Soloman and Carter has:

    -S&P leaking various things to various reporters. The one that caught my eye was the reference to “throwing him under the bus” regarding the CF article (Clinton Foundation?). ie. they are leaking to get back at superiors who do things re clinton that S&P don’t like. But there are many others, including the actual or likely identities of the reporters being leaked to.

    Lisa Page is a thirty eight year old mother of a toddler!

    Where are her values and priorities? She probably had a nice secure lifetime job within the bowels of the swamp. But power, ambition, ego, lure of excitement, rabid partisanship and delusions of grandeur pretty much ruin any chance for that family to ever be ‘normal.’

    And what on earth kind of family life did she share with her husband and son? I read that he works in a non profit educational organization. There was a kind of sad picture of him and their kid leaving their house under a barrage of reporters. I think it was from the Daily Mail. Is he a ‘fellow traveler’ or just another dupe? Either way, their kid will never know a normal life.

    I guess this is what ‘family values’ mean within the swamp.

      Looking back at all of the previous articles, stories, etc., that have been released in the past couple of years, it would behoove one to look at the actual content of the articles. What messages were being relayed?

      Yes, we know about the tweets containing code words, but the articles themselves as well.

      Sundance was just pointing out words in the above article of how the narrative of the ‘official story’ was directed by the sources.

      Who is to say that the sources were not communicating with their accomplices outside of the inner circle. Example, Farkas saying that they had to get as much information out as soon as possible before the Trump Administration moved in.

      Just a few thoughts on that matter. Which now brings us back to the innocuous statement by Comey.

            It isn’t a civil rights issue, it is a national security and public safety issue where the conventional authorities are and have been completely overwhelmed for decades. When the authorities can’t or won’t take care of business because they are corrupt, then to where does the duty to respond fall but on The People. The authority to take action can only be delegated to hired public servants because it is an authority that resides originally and inherently with The People and that authority delegated isn’t forfeited by The People simply hiring out some of the work. Everybody being rendered impotent to defend the republic because of LAW is not the purpose or function of law. When a national emergency exists, and it does, the “rules” are “flexible”.

Has he not been working diligently to keep the promises that he made to us, the American people?

              At the administrative level of intelligence agency work the oversight and avenues of legal recourse often becomes impractical or impossible for a “law and order” type of more conventional “judicial” solution to what has been espionage. Historically the way crimes involving espionage are solved by most countries and that includes the U.S. is the perpetrators are pretty much just summarily executed or have an unfortunate “accident”. Sure there have been espionage trials, but that is not the way things are generally tidied up with no loose ends by the intel community. It is similar to what occurred with de-nazification, where there was a search world wide for certain “missing nazis” and when they were found they were not “arrested” …..they were simply shot.

    The FBI and DOJ exist to put people in jail period. They are all lawyers. They should not be allowed to communicate on any personal device of any technology about any case. When they take a case for prosecution all communications they have should be turned over to defense period. The government should not be allowed to keep any communications or techniques used to collect evidence a secret.

    If caught breaking any of those rules they should be jailed for a mandatory 10 years. No early release. And upon completion of there sentence they would never be allowed to work in any form of government or hold any public office. Also would forfeit any professional license they may hold.

    All members of the FBI and DOJ should have to prove every year how they have paid for any
    Personal collateral. This would help Identify cops on the take.

    Every 6 months undergo a polygraph test.

    They imprison people for a living, so they should be the most open in their jobs. No hiding.

      Last Sunday on Dutch television programme College Tour, Rob Bertholee, head of AIVD, said that he had no doubt that the Kremlin was directly responsible for the Russian cyber campaign against U.S. government agencies. Bertholee as well as Pieter Bindt, who was heading MIVD at the time, personally discussed the DNC matter with James Clapper, at the time overall head of the US intelligence services, and Michael Rogers, who is soon to retire as the head of the NSA.

      As of now, the AIVD hackers do not seem to have access to Cozy Bear any longer. Sources suggest that the openness of US intelligence sources, who in 2017 praised the help of a Western ally in news stories, may have ruined their operation. The openness caused great anger in The Hague and Zoetermeer. In the television programme College Tour, this month, AIVD director Bertholee stated that he is extra careful when it comes to sharing intelligence with the U.S., now that Donald Trump is President.

      My goodness, what a farce this muh Russia hoax is! I’m sure you’re all familiar with Adam Carter’s Guccifer 2.0: Game Over exposing Crowdstrike.

      Besides the wonderful research linked above, here’s a very quick retort one can use to knock out the Dutch intel story (see bold):

      In this 10-24-16 puff piece by Esquire on Crowdstrike, we find a nugget – “Fancy Bear” and “Cozy Bear” are names created by Crowdstrike. The purported Russian hackers do not call themselves that. It’s Crowdstrike’s name for them!!! It’s become so used by know-nothing “experts” in the media that people believe that’s what the hackers call themselves.

      So, how did Dutch intel know anything about those names – the Russians aren’t as stupid as CNN* to put those names in their coding!

      Excerpt from Esquire article:
      “Inevitably there were questions about the strange names his company had given the Russian hackers. As it happened, “Fancy Bear” and “Cozy Bear” were part of a coding system Alperovitch had created. Animals signified the hackers’ country of origin: Russians were bears, Chinese were pandas, Iranians were kittens, and North Koreans were named for the chollima, a mythical winged horse. By company tradition, the analyst who discovers a new hacker gets to choose the first part of the nickname. Cozy Bear got its nickname because the letters coz appeared in its malware code. Fancy Bear, meanwhile, used malware that included the word Sofacy, which reminded the analyst who found it of the Iggy Azalea song “Fancy.” ”
      __________

      * CNN The Russian Connection June 2017 video – at 19:00 – 19:11 shows fake computer screen with the words “Fancy Bear” and “Cozy Bear” and commentary by Hultquist, former senior US Intel Analyst. CNN didn’t have Crowdstrike people presenting that screen; they’d know better.

      The whole video is one piece of amateur propaganda laughable puerile piece of ….

      FOX had reported back in December that the DOJ was reviewing the texts and redacting certain parts. And I had read elsewhere (still trying to find it) that they were specifically redacting personal details and even not sending texts that were entirely personal, to spare the schlubs embarrassment, like at this point it matters considering they were trying to stage a coup.

      Actually, why does it matter if there are, or are not, amorous texts? The fact that they might exist doesn’t make them believable. If they intended to fake an affair as a cover for their activities, you would expect they would fake appropriate message traffic as well.

    Is it possible that Strzok and Page pissed of Barrett so he didn’t feel compelled to protect them any more? Maybe they called him “schlubby” just like they did that other journalist, and maybe Barrett found out about it.

    I just cannot accept that Strzok and Page were very clever. Strzok is an egotistical a-hole and his ego made him somewhat stupid. Page was so stupid that she couldn’t even figure out that searching for info about a reporter and his wife and trying to find their address USING HER WORK PHONE was a bad thing to do. The dumb ho has a husband and a kid! Not sure about Strzok but he’s a total piece of work narcissist and I’m surprised Page could stand him, but maybe that’s just more evidence of her underlying stupidity.

    Nunes and I think Gowdy and others have seen all of the Strzok and Page texts that were delivered by the DOJ thus far. We have only seen the tiniest fraction of them. I was going to look this up … does anyone know if Nunes or Gowdy or Gaetz or Jordan or any of the others who have seen the texts referred to Strzok and Page as “lovers” or as having an affair? Because if they have then I’m going to assume it’s the truth. I’m going to search now ….

  15. I’ve been wondering about the lack of personal comments you would expect from both of them having an affair. IMO Sundance’s spidey sense is correct. The affair was concocted to draw attention away from and cover for the treason. It’s why they’re both still married. They explained to their spouses that the affair is a cover for the investigation into PDJT. No doubt their spouses are as anti-Trump as they are, so it may not be hard for them to believe.

    James Baker has made prior visits to the WH, according to the log. There was a frequency spike in spring 2016, with his first group meeting in the spring with these DOJ attorneys.

    The DOJ attorneys also make frequent visits to the WH. The last time James Baker met with any of the attorneys on the WH logs appears to be in 2015 (Tashina Guahar). The DOJ attorneys Tashina Guahar, Christopher Hardee, Brad Wiegmann are FISA attorneys. There are some FISA docs available online with their info on them.

    Trisha B. Anderson is in the meeting. She was a rising star in 2009 and also in the email chain of infamy in the FBI Clinton email investigation.

    Finally I found what I was looking for! The definitive source of the info I had seen that the DOJ was deliberately withholding personal texts and redacting personal details from texts. It’s in Boyd’s letter about the missing texts: https://www.scribd.com/document/369750230/1-19-18-Boyd-Nunes-Letter

    The Department is not providing text messages that were purely personal in nature. Furthermore, the Department has redacted from some work-related text messages portions that were purely personal. The Department’s aim in withholding purely personal text messages and redacting personal portions of work-related text messages was primarily to facilitate the Committee’s access to potentially relevant text messages without having to cull through large quantities of material […] Also, the withholding of personal information in some instances avoids unnecessary embarrassment or harassment to third parties that could result from public release of such information

    The absence of amorous content means absolutely nothing. If it exists, it has been redacted. Only the DOJ has seen all of the unredacted text messages.

    KGB Training Manuals instructed new operatives in the Intel, Counter-Intel, and Counter-Counter-Intel subterfuge, taught that for every disruptive Meme injected into the Press, that it had to contain seeds for a greater Intel Meme that could be enacted, if the original Meme were exposed as an Intel planted lie to mislead the public.

    It is entirely possible that Linda Page was not stroking Peter Strzok’s peter, as his mistress, but instead, that story is a planted counter-Intel story to be used as a back-up disrupter for the protection of the lying FBI Agents and DoJ Attorneys, if they were exposed (LIKE NOW!).

    “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.”

    Oh, it’s so bloody simple. I’m surprised that we all missed that maybe bad actors were preparing other bad actors for their testimony by leaking to the press. I always had a nagging suspicion in the back of my head that S. Carter’s reporting was off. Now I see that she is possibly too eager and too entranced w/ sudden fame to really question what is being told to her by “sources”.

    While reading the texts I was wondering if there was an affair going on. Then I thought that maybe to save their spouses’ feelings, the doj/congress decided not publish those salacious bits. Now, I’m thinking I might be wrong re. the comment I made a few days ago about their relationship and personalities. I will say that both are narcissistic, entitled, vile, and entrenched in their belief system. They will never admit guilt because they don’t believe they did anything wrong. However, I DO believe that their bosses knew what P & S were doing and tacitly or overtly approved. P & S did not do this plotting on their own.
