Corrupt FBI Officials Fight Back Against Intelligence Oversight Memo…

There are multiple corrupt officials inside the U.S. Department of Justice.  This has never been in doubt since DOJ and FBI officials made direct admissions to the FISA court that they intentionally manipulated the court system for political purposes (April ’17 FISC pdf).

After the material admissions to the court; and against revelations from sunlight upon the activity showing the DOJ and FBI manipulated the FISC to gain surveillance authority to spy on Donald Trump campaign officials; the issue shifted toward disclosure of the activity, evidence of scale of abuse and ultimately, accountability.

Accountability for the weaponization of intelligence has been the ongoing goal of House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes.  Explaining what took place leads to Chairman Nunes creating the intelligence memo.  However, it is the underlying classified information behind the memo where evidence of ‘how’ the apparatus was weaponized will be found.

Current and former officials within the Department of Justice (national security division) and FBI (counterintelligence division) are at the heart of the malfeasance.  Those officials have a vested interest in trying to stop the public from seeing what took place.  They are aided by a political media apparatus who are attempting to shield the corrupt officials due to aligned political opposition against the current President.

The corrupt FBI officials -remaining inside the DOJ/FBI- know they can rely on their media allies to assist them in keeping what took place hidden from public review.  Today, those FBI entities attempt to cloud the Nunes memo and shape a narrative.  Their release:

WASHINGTON – The FBI takes seriously its obligations to the FISA Court and its compliance with procedures overseen by career professionals in the Department of Justice and the FBI. We are committed to working with the appropriate oversight entities to ensure the continuing integrity of the FISA process.

With regard to the House Intelligence Committee’s memorandum, the FBI was provided a limited opportunity to review this memo the day before the committee voted to release it. As expressed during our initial review, we have grave concerns about material omissions of fact that fundamentally impact the memo’s accuracy.  (read more)

Chairman Nunes responds.

House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes issued the following statement today:

“Having stonewalled Congress’ demands for information for nearly a year, it’s no surprise to see the FBI and DOJ issue spurious objections to allowing the American people to see information related to surveillance abuses at these agencies.

The FBI is intimately familiar with ‘material omissions’ with respect to their presentations to both Congress and the courts, and they are welcome to make public, to the greatest extent possible, all the information they have on these abuses.

Regardless, it’s clear that top officials used unverified information in a court document to fuel a counter-intelligence investigation during an American political campaign. Once the truth gets out, we can begin taking steps to ensure our intelligence agencies and courts are never misused like this again.”  (read more)

The White House is preparing to release the memo.  However, it is important to remember, what the public really needs to see is the evidence behind the memo.

So long as corrupt officials, and media, can dismiss the claims of the Nunes memo, they will continue to do so.  Ultimately and hopefully, the opposition to the memo will create momentum for the underlying content to be declassified and released.

In the interim, the institutional media will attack the executive office (President Trump), because the release of the memo and/or the underlying content is a risk to their corporate ideological efforts and political alignment.

.

(Via Fox News) The FBI said Wednesday that the bureau has “grave concerns” about the classified memo that purportedly reveals government surveillance abuses, but White House Chief of Staff John Kelly says it is going public, anyway.

“With regard to the House Intelligence Committee’s memorandum, the FBI was provided a limited opportunity to review this memo the day before the committee voted to release it,” the FBI said in a statement. “As expressed during our initial review, we have grave concerns about material omissions of fact that fundamentally impact the memo’s accuracy.”

But earlier Tuesday, Kelly told Fox News in an exclusive interview the classified memo will be made public soon. Kelly said White House national security aides have been reviewing the memo.

“It’ll be released here pretty quick I think and the whole world can see it,” he said.

The bureau’s claim that the memo involves “omissions of fact” came a day after a source told Fox News that two senior FBI officials reviewed the memo and “could not point to any factual inaccuracies” in the memo itself.  (more)

Maybe the Executive branch can redact? If that is the case, using the word “edit” in that reporting is a little misleading to say the least.

        I found the FBI appointment docs for Priestap, Dec 2015, From 2006-2012 he was Counter intel and terrorism in NYC, then again from 2013 – 2015 same Counter intel and Terrorism in NYC. Then brought into as director Counter intelligence there is no way he did not know Trump from his time in NYC… NOT POSSIBLE, also probably good experiences with Trump, when thrown under the bus in March he probably went directly to Trump.

        And this is the problem with having Mueller hanging over Trumps shoulder…he is handcuffed under threat of obstruction charges while the kids continue to raid the candy store…this is why they are trying so hard to save Mueller….as long as he is there, they are safe…once he is gone, I predict there will be a bloodbath starting with the top 20 in both the DOJ and FBI…Followed by a pause to let the rest of the rats jump overboard, then reorganize, and split up both into divisions under seperate leadership….there is far too much power concentrated at the top by a few people…15 divisions, each with their own boss accountable to congress…AG and FBI director should only ensure that each division is aware of the administrations priorities, ensure they have adequate resources, and compile monthly reports for the President and Congress, with each division head being accountable to congress for testimony in their given area…no more hiding behind a wall put up by the AG, or FBI director.
        Its far easier to weed out the corruption this way, and prevent it in the first instance.
        Just my opinion.

    Whatever the case, it is not a good look for the FBI to be getting in a public tit-for-tat with a House Oversight committee.

    What you would like to see is something along the lines of, “We at the FBI have great respect for the Institutions that directly represent the American people. This is a very important Congressional Committee and we take their work seriously. We received the memo in question 24 hours ago and will be conducting a thorough review of the facts and conclusions therein. We take our integrity and professionalism seriously. If anyone is found to have violated our standards, much less the law, they will be held in full account.”

    Something like that would suffice. Instead, their running out to the media doubling down and playing games. The American people need to start putting pressure on Congress to shut the organization down via defunding. It can be rebuilt one day if deemed necessary.

    1. Covering up the murder of a President of the United States.
    2. Covering up the torture/murder of a prisoner in a modern, maximum security federal transfer facility. This was the murder of Kenneth Trentadue in his cell. Several cowards with knowledge and experience of torture, savagely murdered him over several hours. His stomach contained several liters of Coca Cola since the caffeine in the drink enhances pain. Is there anyone out there naive enough to think that anyone other than someone carrying badges and credentials did that crime, a murder not unlike Magnitsky’s in Russia, yet we impose sanctions for that murder, and cover-up for those who murdered Kenneth Trentadue.
    3. The torture murder of Oklahoma City Police Officer Terence Yeakey.
    4. The framing of at least two people for murder in order to cover-up for Whitey Bulger. This was approved at the highest level of the FBI. The truth was finally revealed while the men were still of death row. They were willing to murder those men to protect an informant who was still committing crimes.
    5. All the surveillance tapes from downtown Oklahoma City from the day of the Murrah Building bombing somehow disappeared from the FBI evidence security.

He only presents the face value analysis of President Trump’s maneuverings, never the “art of the deal” stratagems that the President clearly employs. The viewers are left with the impression that the President isn’t very good at these things. For instance, anyone aware of corporate governance would recognize the DACA proposal as like a “bear hug” intended to wrong foot the dems and put them in an untenable position. Has anyone seen this meta analysis on Lou Dobbs? No, you just get “Trump is betraying his base” analysis.

    Regarding the five FBI agents who went to the White House – would a sane person do that if they were not involved in the underlying abuse just “to protect the sterling reputation of the FBI”? I don’t think so! The five who attended the meeting are either up to their eyeballs in the abuse or political hacks. In either case, they added their names to those that should be removed from any leadership position. Trump’s likely reaction at the proposal – “let them do that – let’s see who shows up!”

    Regarding the whole FISA/702 spying on Trump, Trump has been operating under an environment of heightened scrutiny for years – both from the IRS and because of strict laws concerning corporate governance. What did they hope to find? Sometimes I think the minority members of the past regime were absolutely convinced that if they listened to Trump long enough he would use the n-word to describe Obama! Then they could go to the press and that’s all we would ever hear about candidate or President Trump!

    Regarding the intransigence of the FBI, DOJ, etc., the libs control many institutions, and I am convinced that those in leadership positions are protecting their future prospects and those of their children. I believe that they have concluded that the demographic changes of the country will happen one way or another, and gd’t, they’re absolutely gonna go along with any insanity if it means they get to keep their job, or their son or daughter gets into an ivy league school!

    In my ideal world, the big ugly should start with Mueller, Boehner and Roberts and at least one republican state secretary of state who allowed Obama to appear on a ballot without proof of constitutional qualification. Where we’re at now is a consequence of bums like Mueller, Boehner and Roberts not doing their jobs years ago! Anyone remember stories of concerned citizens telephoning the FBI when Mueller was head with questions about Obama’s eligibility and birth certificate and being told to call the secret service, and then when calling the secret service, to call the FBI? I do. Mueller was a bag man then, and still is.

      Plenty of Comgressmen and others who were allowed have seen the original. I find it hard to believe the memo would be altered without the committee being involved or giving permission and Nunes seems a whole lot smarter than to try something like this after all the build up and comments about it. It would just make the repubs look like complete idiots. Which wouldn’t be hard now that I think about it. I am just not buying this latest ploy to prevent the release especially coming from Schiff. They are desperate to make this seem completely unreliable so the public doesn’t know what to believe. The DC famous m.o. on things the pols/govt don’t want the truth told about.

    CNN has another leak! Trying to rehabilitate Strzok?

    Exclusive: Controversial FBI agent co-wrote initial draft of explosive Comey letter reopening Clinton email probe

    Washington (CNN)Emails obtained by CNN show the FBI agent at the center of a Capitol Hill storm played a key role in a controversial FBI decision that upended Hillary Clinton’s campaign just days before the 2016 election: the letter to Congress by then-FBI Director James Comey announcing the bureau was investigating newly discovered Clinton emails.

    The new revelation about FBI agent Peter Strzok comes as Republicans accuse him of being sympathetic to Clinton while seeking to undermine Donald Trump during the heat of the 2016 campaign season.

  35. I don’t get it. Why are so many commentators jumping up and down over this? If people have not noticed the pattern let me refresh their memory – what happened on the day or two before the second debate? The Billy Bush tape and what was every single “experts” crowing on TV or Radio or online or in print?
    I have mentioned before but I think it is worth repeating – The Dems / media / FBI / DOJ whomever you pick, they are forgetting one simple fact that they are not dealing with someone like Nixon – a career politician, but someone who has completely different background and was probably invited to their smoke filled rooms when something was being plotted against someone when they thought that he is one of us.
    President Trump probably knows the moves and counter moves. If I am not mistaken – he is uncharacteristically low profile on his twitter on this memo. I believe that is his counter move against the hype that media is creating against the memo. I may be wrong since I am not on twitter and most of his tweets I read are here on CTH or other websites, but I do not see any related tweets posted from President Trump on the subject. I wonder why? Maybe because he knows when to draw fire on to himself when it is necessary or when to provide tail wind on a subject and when to lay low and let the events unfold itself.
    I maybe wrong after all I am just one deplorable ;).

I check every day multiple times to see if he’s broken his ‘silence’.

    Read the memo, which should not have contained anything he should not have already known by now and feigns shock.
    Allows McCabe to stay on and retire with full bennies after reading memo.
    Now allowing the FBI to throw shade at a Congressional oversight memo that they’ve already said is factually correct.

    1. The FBI’s request to see the memo was based on how much confidential information would be shared, not accuracy. If they want to object to the conclusions of the memo fine. But debates on the substance should NOT be used to stop release.

    2. Both Trump and Nunes have evidence of misuse of these secret courts and of all the Intel NSA gathers on the general public. It was never constitutional to start. And now we have rapid evidence of misuse of this power. (See also the FISC court memo as well as ADM Rogers’ comments.) But THEY VOTED TO RENEW these broad powers. Wrong, wrong, wrongitty wrong.

    3. The justification for much of this expanded surveillance was protecting us from Al Queda and 9-11. [Even that, I don’t agree with. I would rather be a free country and take our chances with monsters than get rid of the 4th Amendment.] But this whole case had NOTHING to do with Al Queda or terrorism. It was conventional spy concerns that you could take back to pre 9-11 when these broad powers did not exist. Clearly what was justified to keep us safe from Islamic mass terrorism is being used for counterintel and for conventional law enforcement.

    4. It is very annoying to read some of the gamesy stuff from Q or the like. If you have a suspicion or even knowledge, then name it. You are anonymous. But writing in guessing games is a waste. You can’t even analyze anything with all that cutesiness.

    5. Nobody (including the blog author who has done some excellent work) knows everything. We are trying to make out a puzzle of unknown events based on what we do know. Nothing wrong with that. But remember it is speculation. As new facts come out, they have to be dealt with and will explode some theories.

    6. I would be careful about assuming that Mueller or the lG or the like will turn on investigators or Hillary or the like. I just remember a lot of my Republican buddies (and I am one too) being disappointed in the Plame investigation, thinking the investigator would not go after Libby or the like and would turn against Plame or her husband. You have no idea what Mueller will do and he has a lot of power.

Do you think the Dems, MSM, and corrupt FBI/DOJ are going to be able to handle Grassley, Goodlatte, and Horowitz if they are freaking out this much over Nunes? I don’t think so. POTUS had Davos and SOTU he had to focus on. Kelley is handling memo with WH counsel. I have full faith in Kelly. Why do you think POTUS has generals around him? They are not BS political hacks like Comey, Lynch, Holder, Mueller, etc. We got this.

    I am tired of all this talk about Pres. Trump being surrounded by black hats (Kelly, Wray, etc). Well Trump has bought a lot of white hates into his administrations and they have been nothing but trouble. Manaford was loved by everyone on this site and guess what he was nothing but trouble. Bannon was was loved by every one here and all he did was leak. Flynn is loved by everyone and he has been only trouble, Sessions was loved by everyone and he has been trouble. He is always trying to do what is right and so you can never trust Sessions. Pres. Trump has always said he knows a lot of really rotten people and that he knew how to use them. Bad people are predictable you know what they are going to do. Thus a smart person like our Pres. knows how to guide them in their predictability. Good people are totally unpredictable. They keep trying to do good according to what they think is the circumstances at the time. Thus you never know how they are going to act. When you know how someone is going to act you know how you can use them. As SD has always said, Pres. Trump is the master of the downside. Ryan is a terrible person, but Pres. Trump has played him like a fiddle. McCain is so scared of the President that he won’t even come back to Washington. He is just waiting to die.
