“Mike” is Out – Michael P Kortan Quits FBI…

Another longtime FBI official quits today. According to Fox News Catherine Herridge reporting, FBI Asst. Director Michael Kortan (aka text message “Mike”), the head of the FBI Public Affairs Office, has announced he is retiring.

Mike Kortan was previously exposed by FBI Agent Peter Strozok as having specific information that the investigation into Hillary Clinton was manipulated by the “small group”. “Mike’s”  job was to sell the ruse as a valid investigation.

WASHINGTON – The longtime head of public affairs at the FBI — who was a confidant of former director James Comey — is planning to retire, Fox News has learned.

A notice went out this week for a retirement get-together for Michael Kortan scheduled for Feb. 15. Since 2009, Kortan has served as assistant director for public affairs, an influential job that controlled media access. He also served under former director Robert Mueller, now leading the Russia probe.

The FBI confirmed to Fox News that Kortan is retiring.

It’s unclear whether the retirement was long-planned or in any way precipitated by recent events. The FBI emphasized he was finishing 33 years of service. (read more)

Boy-o-boy this prior Peter Strzok tweet, as read by Bob Goodlatte on January 25th, is striking a nerve:

“Jim”, aka James Baker (FBI Chief Legal Counsel) was removed in January.
“Mike” aka Michael Kortan (FBI Asst. Director Public Affairs) quits today.
“Dave” aka David Laufman (DOJ – National Security Division, Deputy Asst. Attorney General in charge of counterintelligence) quit yesterday.
“Trisha” aka Trish Beth Anderson (Office of Legal Counsel, FBI)

At first, the context behind the September 10th, 2016, message was elusive, however it is now clear.

On September 2nd, 2016, during the (pre-election) apex of the FBI providing the documents behind their investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of her personal email, and the subsequent decision by FBI Director James Comey not to pursue criminal charges therein, the FBI released their investigative files:

September 2nd, 2016 FBI Press Release:

“Today the FBI is releasing a summary of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s July 2, 2016 interview with the FBI concerning allegations that classified information was improperly stored or transmitted on a personal e-mail server she used during her tenure. We also are releasing a factual summary of the FBI’s investigation into this matter.

We are making these materials available to the public in the interest of transparency and in response to numerous Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests. Appropriate redactions have been made for classified information or other material exempt from disclosure under FOIA. Additional information related to this investigation that the FBI releases in the future will be placed on The Vault, the FBI’s electronic FOIA library.” (link)

The FBI was under pressure to release their investigative documents.  On Sept 2nd, 2016 the release included the FBI investigative notes (FD-302’s) from the questions and answers during Hillary Clinton’s interview.  This investigative release was big news at the time.

The 302’s are the specific FBI forms used to document interviews/interrogations. They detail questions asked and answers given as well as who was present during the interview.

Inside the September 2nd, 2016, FBI release were two files:

•One file was 47 pages (full pdf here) and includes a full summary of the Clinton email investigation.

•The second file is 11 pages (full pdf here) and is the actual FBI investigator notes during the Hillary Clinton interview.

This second file is the “FD-302” (embed at the bottom for reference).  This is the 302 file FBI Agent Peter Strzok is referencing in the text message to Lisa Page.  Remember, Peter Strzok was one of the FBI people who actually interviewed Hillary Clinton.

What FBI Agent Peter Strzok is admitting in the September 10th text message, is that there are details within the interview of Hillary Clinton that he (and others) intentionally withheld from the September 2nd, 2016, release.

Specifically, evidence withheld in the 302’s would be some of the FBI questions and some of the Hillary Clinton answers to those questions.   In essence, the FBI held back actually releasing the full account of the interview.

According to the Strzok text message, the reason for withholding some of the details of the Hillary Clinton interview is because there are “very INFLAMMATORY things” within it; and once congress finds out what was withheld the details will “absolutely inflame” them.

Peter Strzok then goes on to say when/if the full FOIA is released, presumably post-election, Jim, Trisha, Dave and Mike are going to have to figure out how to deal with the discrepancy:

…”I’m sure Jim and Trisha and Dave and Mike are all considering how things like that will play out as they talk among themselves.”

“Jim” is likely James Baker, the Chief Legal Counsel for FBI Director James Comey.

“Trish” is likely Trisha Beth Anderson, Office of Legal Counsel for the FBI.  [Anderson was hired for the DOJ, by AG Eric Holder, from Eric Holder’s law firm.]

“Dave” is likely David Laufman,  National Security Division, Deputy Asst. Attorney General in charge of counterintelligence. [Sat in on Clinton interview]

and “Mike” is Michael P Kortan FBI Asst. Director, Office of Public Affairs.

So it would appear, James Baker and Trisha Anderson, the legal advisers at the top of the FBI leadership apparatus, were both aware the September 2nd, 2016, FOIA release was manipulated to conceal part of Hillary Clinton’s questions and answers.

Perhaps now we can better understand the importance of this specific text message as it was released by House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte.

This message by Strzok shows a team of FBI officials intentionally conspiring to withhold “inflammatory” Clinton investigation evidence, from congress. And the decision-making goes directly to the very top leadership within the FBI.

Peter Strzok justifies his knowledge of the intentionally withheld 302 interview material by claiming: “because they weren’t relevant to understanding the focus of the investigation”.  However, to evaluate the filter this investigative team are applying we only need to look at the wording of their public release which accompanied the material:

Today the FBI is releasing a summary of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s July 2, 2016 interview with the FBI concerning allegations that classified information was improperly stored or transmitted on a personal e-mail server she used during her tenure. (link)

They felt obligated only to release information about “classified” or “improperly stored or transmitted” information.   That’s a rather disingenuous investigation.

There’s no mention of any FBI intent to investigate action or conduct undertaken by Hillary Clinton or her team to hide the use of classified or improperly stored information; or any intent to look at a cover-up, scrubbing, or conduct that happened AFTER it was discovered that she unlawfully used a personal e-mail server during her tenure.

We can see from the wording of the FBI public release, and the overlay of the text message from interviewer Peter Strzok, a deliberate effort to inquire into only the surface issues of classified information transmission and storage.  There was no investigative intent to go beyond that, and no information released, intentionally, that might disclose any larger issues.

If the FBI was legitimately conducting an investigation, and providing the subsequent evidence from within that investigation,  the FOIA would include all material relevant to the investigation, which would include all 302 (essentially Q&A) pages. However, the set of questions and answers the FBI released on Sept. 2nd 2016 was not the full set of Questions and Answers. They withheld something, likely “inflammatory”, per FBI Agent Strzok.

FBI Agent Peter Strzok is outlining in this text message a deliberate intent to shape the Clinton interview, and then a deliberative process of filtering out only those aspects of the interview that would support their pre-determined outcome, delivered only days later.

Additionally, FBI Agent Strzok is admitting that a group of FBI officials including himself, James Baker, Trisha Anderson, Lisa Page, and likely others (McCabe, Comey) conspired together to intentionally withhold  information -derived from this interview- from congress and the American people.

        “That leaves the tool that will certainly be available: the courts. The courts have a few obvious advantages, starting with hundreds of independent judges of both parties whom Trump cannot remove from office and who don’t have to face his supporters in forthcoming elections.”

        “The goal will not be to challenge everything a Trump administration does, some of which will be lawful, after all, and some of which may be debatably lawful among reasonable people. The goal, rather, will be to offer a systematic defense of the values the Coalition of All Democratic Forces holds in common and to have the ability to respond rapidly to actions that threaten those values: to forestall such actions in court as long as possible, to whittle them down, and to block those that can be blocked. The goal is to use the courts to render Trump’s antidemocratic instincts as ineffectual as possible.” (lawfareblog link)

      AND now I feel like I need to take a shower. I feel covered in swamp slime. That was kind of awful, actually.

      And weirdly illuminating. Don’t you find it strange….the whole insurance policy analogy that we have already learned about through the Strozk Page texts? Obviously this is an idea shared throughout the conspirators. There is no way this concept just popped up organically in one or two separate people.

      ALSO there is the use of the expression “profiles in courage” that caught my attention. Of course I know that JFK used it as the title for the b, ook that Jackie wrote for him, and it isn’t as though it is completely foreign. But I find it oddly coincidental that this expression comes up in Wittes’ column with the insurance policy concept AND in the Strozk Page texts.

      I’m betting it is more than they are just breathing the same swamp gas. They were meeting together and infecting each other with posionous ideas. Conspiring. Plotting.

      A “detective” point which may help us.

      Notice that there was NO HINT of anything near the CRIMES of the actual sketchy, dirty part of the insurance policy. That would include the part where it emerges above ground – IMPEACHMENT proceedings, MEDIA roasting, DRIVING FROM OFFICE.
      None of that. The actual expected outcome of the COMEY “insurance policy” is carefully avoided.

      Normally, with this kind of breathless, hyperbolic screed, one would expect at least SOME of that – BUT HE DIDN’T GO THERE.

      I think this guy is good for KNOWLEDGE OF THE PLOT. I think he and Comey shared MORE than just the WORDS “insurance policy”. I think Comey said it in as many words, as in “We’ve got one, and oh, it’s a doozy!” And COMEY may have provided some details.

      “Liberal billionaire and environmental activist Tom Steyer announced, on Thursday, that he has hired 50 full-time staffers as part of his Need to Impeach campaign, which is starting to look more like a launching pad for Steyer’s 2020 presidential ambitions.

      Steyer launched “Need to Impeach,” in 2017, as part of his effort to impeach President Donald Trump, and has previously announced that he would spend $40 million on the campaign.

      “Need to Impeach Founder Tom Steyer today announced that he has hired an experienced political team including political and communications strategists to lead the campaign that now has nearly 4.6 million supporters calling on Congress to impeach Donald Trump,” the Need to Impeach press release stated.

      “The team, including 50 staff members, is adding thousands of new supporters to the impeachment movement each day, creating a digital army of activists who are mobilizing to take back the House of Representatives in the 2018 election and remove Trump from power.””

      Peculiar though, the article doesn’t make mention of POTUS Trump’s promise to nominate judges that will interpret the Constitution as written as a possible impediment to their plan to go against him. I wonder how the members of this coalition felt when Neil Gorsuch was nominated and Senate approved.

      These people are so deep into their ideology/cult/demonic religion, that they just don’t hear what they are saying. They don’t hear the contempt for the American people when they refer to us. They don’t hear their elitism. They don’t hear their predilection for Marxism. They think that by dressing up their ideas and ideals with democratic sounding labels, that they as a result are democratic things.
      (Well, I for one am not in favor of democracy. It is mob rule. The Founders knew that and that’s why they founded a Representative Republic. The main instrument of freedom for us is the Constitution and that we get to choose our Representatives, whom we should hold accountable every time we vote. This system of governance is simply ingenious and I would hate for us to lose it.)

      Let’s continue to pray for POTUS Trump and his family.

      What is most formidable about the coalition that was described is that they intended to use / abuse the legal system against us. Respect for Laws creates the thin line that separate a civil society from anarchy and chaos. When one faction who constitute a majority of authority-holders in the legal system decides to weaponize that system against a majority of citizens, those citizens can be pushed into countering with the only other means left available – armed revolt. The author very naively assumed that an insurmountable majority of those elites in power would support the proposed resistance but so far their strategy has been only partially effective.

            2. They hate everyone they work(ed) with – snarky and constant sniping, gossipy.
            3. Page is extraordinarily insecure – Strock was constantly reassuring her ego.
            4. They hate middle class Americans – her text when she was stuck in traffic as a result of a pro-life march was quite stunning.
            5. She especially thought much of what they had to do – in terms of training – was completely stupid.
            6. And they’re delusional, lacking self awareness – for example, she texted, at least twice, what a nice person she is, committed to fairness and ETHICS!!! And – get this – one of the training sessions she thought was soooooo stupid and a waste of her time, was….you got it!! Ethics.
            7. They’re both miserable, unhappy fools.
            8. They’re foul-mouthed.

            These two are poison. They’ll never be in a govt office again. No one will want to work with them. They’re nasty – and there must be many in that viper’s nest that are quite delighted they’ve been exposed. Frankly, these 2 unfortunates need prayer and to find Jesus.

    So glad the MSM is ignoring the FISA and FBI/DOJ investigations. The WaPo can put the arrests in the obituary section for all I care. As long as it gets done.

    2017-06-16 Peter Strzok-Lisa Page texting event https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1uSvJhQOXNyLZREGq-gtj2i39b-RU_MOaLLS1Z1XBcI4/edit#gid=0&range=A15
    —————————————–
    Now, in this particular texting event, Lisa Page makes reference to some NY field agents who were fired for leaking and how quiet they were about it and all that, right?
    —————————————–
    So I go and look up who was fired and for what, and what do I find?

    Remember When FBI Leaks Helped Trump?

    —————————————-
    Right away, I knew where that was coming from because I’d heard it before….here:

    This wasn’t the first time Steele had said this either. Here’s the first time Steele called the NY FBI Russian agents: https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/donald-trump-russia-dossier-file-investigation-hacking-christopher-steele-mi6-a7526901.html
    —————————————
    And do you know which NYT article that convinced Steele that the NY FBI agents were Russian spies? This one…..

    ————————————-

    Comey — at the behest of Christopher Steele or somebody who’s good friends with Steele — had those FBI agents fired because of an article, just because they didn’t agree with their findings…….

    Meanwhile, to divert public attention, the lead story on the ABC Evening News is…the wife-beating, Trump advisor…followed by the plunging stock market and your soon-to-be-worthless 401s…and the upcoming gov’t shutdown.

  37. I know that everyone thinks he/she has the perfect analogy, but here is a thought: Let’s just suppose George Washington caught Benedict Arnold trying to betray the country at the worst possible moment and decided to let Mr. Arnold stay on in some limited capacity for several months. Mr. Washington’s fellow countrymen would have gone berserk, screaming to imprison and execute the filthy traitor. Hello? Mr. Sessions? Mr. President?

    Just looked at these FBI email docs on Clintons email server.

    No mention if installtion of SCIF TS/SCI equipment was per TEMPEST??!!

    BTW, this is one point that I have not seen anywhere in the media regarding the FBI “matter” of a private server used for USG TS/SCI email—the installation of such a system. The requirements for TEMPEST installation are well known (WIKI) as Allies use it, and it is illegal to install TEMPEST outside the authorized procedures, i.e., outside the authorized USG network. This is very clear in the regulations that would be used for SCIF installation. Criminal intent is very clear with the illegal TEMPEST installation of a private server connected to higher level security networks (what we call “red and black lines” and the twain shall never meet according to the regs, but they apparently did for SecState Clinton). Or does the FBI believe the TS stuff was “sneaker net” sent to Clinton?
    These docs overlook basic investigation of the server itself!

      thanks…and as i’ve posited before, the very ACTION of placing a personal server for the receipt of transmission of EVERY correspondence of a Secretary of State –a position, which by its very nature, would have numerous classified documents transmitted, that action is intentional mishandling of classified documents.
      Imagine pre-internet age: It’s as if HRC removed every single physical file of correspondence and attached documents every day for 4 years and took them home. And never returned them. And later, burned half of them.
      Gee, HRC would say, but I didn’t know that any specific documents were classified. I never looked at any of the files, heck I never even opened a box. How could I be charged with intent?
      Do you think that would fly?

      Sandy Berger removed 4 documents.

      There is also the matter of SAP info being on her server… someone actually copied the stuff and typed it into an email….

      Oh, and not to mention she had her maid go to the scif to print stuff for her.

      How she did not get prosecuted is beyond me.

      Was he always auditioning for the Frank Burns role?
      Did he have gummy girlfriends?
      Did he have a sense of right and wrong?
      Did he mention his CIA family? Did they come for Parent Career Day and discuss fomenting rebellions and/or hiding nukes?

      good catch…remember though that there is a text (page 330 I believe) from the month before where Petey already bemoans that the White House is running this. This seems to be in conjunction of a meeting with a few FBI and possibly a few CIA fellows that may have occurred at the White House itself.

    I remember when I first saw this message. It reminded me of when Grassley asked Dirty Comey why it was that FOIA requesters could dig up more than what Congress could get when they asked for the same info, and they are the ones tasked with oversight. Dirty Comey laughed and said he didn’t know.

    It was immediately after that when Grassley asked him if Mid Year Review meant it had to be done by mid year. Dirty Comey laughed at that too, even though he himself wrapped it by exonerating her on 5 Jul 2016, i.e., Mid Year, lifting an enormous legal cloud from her presidential campaign less than two hours before she boarded Air Force One for her first joint campaign appearance with President Obama.

    My, my, how amazing the timing was.

      I suspect Grassley knew more than he was letting on- lawyers don’t ask unless they pretty much know the answer. Comey is such a narcissist he probably thought a Grassley was a naive Iowa hick. Hope Comey’s laughing and lies come back to haunt him in his next round of questioning by a Grassley.

        I think it was either Sharyl Attkisson or Sara Carter was talking on FOX last night about how Trump was the biggest worry of all the candidates because it was believed that he would be fearless about peeking into the goings on of the Deep State and especially FISA abuses over the last 10-20 years.

        I assume everyone figured the others would “play ball.”

          which begs the question, why was the deep state so contrastingly comfortable when an unknown politician with questionable friends ran for office in 2007?

          Answer: Obama is CIA from day one, from a CIA family. He worked for CIA since college at least.

          I wonder how happy his community organizer friends would be if they’d find this out.

        It might have been as simple as they already had enough on the other candidates to be able to control them, as they were all unipary candidates anyway, and it didn’t really matter who won at that point.
        Trump was an entirely different candidate.

        They knew they were going to clear her. The knew they had to do if before her convention. Once Candidate TRUMP WON the R Candidate-elect status, they needed to move fast to make her the DIM nominee, that’s all. And Cruz didn’t have a choice about stepping down. He and th3e other LOSER Kasich had ZERO chance of going anywhere. Never did. Never will.
