The Enigma Man – E.W. “Bill” Priestap…

For over ten months we have been asking about one FBI official who has been mysteriously missing from the story within the DOJ/FBI ‘Small Group’ activity in the Counterintelligence operation, his name is E.W. “Bill” Priestap.

Bill Priestap is the FBI Asst. Director in charge of all counterintelligence operations.  Priestap was FBI Agent Peter Strzok’s boss; he is also at the epicenter of the story surrounding every action taken by the FBI in the Clinton investigation and the Trump campaign investigation.

Bill Priestap was copied on every email of consequence including the writing of the Clinton exoneration talking points delivered by FBI Director James Comey.  Priestap is the central figure on the FBI side of both Clinton and Trump operations.  “Bill” is mentioned in hundreds of text messages sent by Peter Strzok and Lisa Page.

In short, Bill is everywhere – except where you would most likely expect to find him, in media discussion.

Priestap is so important that during FBI Director James Comey’s March 20th, 2017, congressional testimony Director Comey told congress it was Bill Priestap who recommended that congressional oversight should not be notified of the ongoing counterintelligence operations.  Priestap’s instruction was so important that despite the statutory rules violation FBI Director Comey followed his recommendation and kept congress in the dark.

As FBI Director of counterintelligence Bill Priestap holds a very important position and is one of the few people authorized to sign-off on FISA applications to the FISA court.

Stunningly, everyone around Priestap has been removed or resigned from their position; yet Bill Priestap remains.

FBI Director James Comey was fired; Asst. FBI Director Andrew “Andy” McCabe was removed; FBI Chief Legal Counsel James Baker was removed; FBI Attorney Lisa Page was removed; FBI Agent Peter Strzok was demoted; FBI Special Agent, Chief of Staff, James Rybicki resigned.  Yet somehow, even through today, FBI Director of Counterintelligence Bill Priestap remains.

E.W. “Bill” Priestap is an enigma.

Your thoughts?

  1. I don’t see any white hats any where…sorry…I have no idea why Priestap is bring protected, but he is being protected…big money behind him? Most likely..very weird that Nunes is not talking about him.

      Agreed…random thought…the only danger to PDJT is a perjury trap. This has been the Deep State fall back plan from the beginning. That is why they spied on PDJT in 2017 and appointed RM as SC. The FBI assuredly has a motherlode of raw intelligence on Trump from the FISA warrants that has been given to RM by book or by crook. RM is then in a position to trip up our POTUS should PDJT submit to an interview. The systematic deconstruction of the FISA process has not only uncovered criminality, but it will take off the table the use of raw intelligence by RM to trap PDJT. Without the raw intelligence RM has nothing and will have to close up his briefcase and go home. BP knows what intelligence was gathered as a result of the FISA warrants and knows what, if anything, was given to RM. This is just my take on where this is all headed…and soon. It will be difficult to start prosecuting the the cabal until our POTUS is officially cleared.

    Of course, any discussion of enigmas begins with Peter Stzrok. That said… Priestap was appointed Asst. Dir. of Counterintelligence in Dec. 2015. Despite this, he was not involved in the FBI’s HRC e-mail investigation which spanned July, 2015 to July, 2016. The investigation was headed by Michael Steinbach and Peter Strzok. Steinbach had been in Priestap’s position and became no. 3 at the FBI, Executive Assistant Director of the National Security Division, when Priestap was brought in. On the famous e-mail from Rybicki to staff asking for input on Comey’s July 5, 2016 statement, Priestap was listed last after Strzok and some other counterintel agent named Jonathan Moffa. Odd.

    Moreover, in July 2016, Stzrok was appointed to head the Trump – Russia collusion “investigation.” There has never been an explanation as to why Priestap was not involved in that investigation either. So, the power structure in the FBI from July 2016 through Trump’s inauguration in January 2017 during which all of the wiretapping was taking place was:

    Comey (director)
    McCabe (deputy director)
    Steinbach (exec. asst. dir. of nat. sec.)
    Priestap (asst. dir. of counterintel.)
    Stzrok (random agent)

    I believe that McCabe planned how the FBI was going to cover HRC’s butt in the e-mail investigation by bringing in a “clean” guy in Priestap to represent the department’s position. Comey blamed the revised language on the “assistant director of counterintelligence” not even mentioning Priestap by name as the CT has pointed out. The plan was for Hillary to win and to direct all of the attention regarding the HRC investigation at Priestap post-victory while McCabe carried on his shenanigans anonymously as usual.

    So now, there sits McCabe’s white hat fall guy, E.W. “Bill” Priestap. The last man standing. Beautiful, sweet justice !!!! Hope I’m close to right. I just can’t believe that Peter Strzok was given all of the power he was said to have been given. That is … unless McCabe is Stzrok. There is no way McCabe would let some random agent that we have still never seen in real life run the HRC investigation. No way.

    And, by the way, it is equally puzzling to me why there is very little mention of Michael Steinbach who was right in the middle of the mess and slinked away quietly after Trump took office. He sure isn’t on the chart in the article.

    That was fun.

    Interesting discussion of “Muh Russia” hacking elections by Priestap is HERE:

    https://www.c-span.org/video/?430128-1/senate-intel-panel-told-21-states-targeted-russia-2016-election

    Feinstein sets him up to finger the Russians as “helping Trump”, and Priestap plays even-handed for a bit, but then “states the party line” as required.

    Yet NOBODY at the table can utter the truth that our OWN PEOPLE are capable of fooling each other – and that the BLACK HATS DO. SAD lack of truth.

    Anyway, it bothers me that Priestap can give his testimony while he has insider knowledge that Trump is being actively shafted by the FBI under the table, and is only getting some bogus mild “cover assistance” from Russia in the clear. That Uranium One was filling up the Clinton coffers on ripped-off American resources, SCAMMED away in a brilliant decades-long plot, while Trump gets worthless FAKE LOVE from Russia to slander him, like some Moscow prostitute blowing kisses at a priest from her pimp’s ride. The whole thing just angers me.

          Don’t u remember the FBI Anon who used to post on 4chan starting about July, 2016. He told us POTUS, from their estimate, was going to win. He said the Dems did rig election. To the point he was shocked POTUS had won in the primaries. Also, why doesn’t anyone remember why the “Russia, Russia” insanity really started up? DNC/Podesta emails got “hacked” supposedly, then appeared in Wikileaks in 7/16, right after the murder of a certain DNC Bernie supporter. DNC’s people, Crowdstrike said it was the Russians. No one else. IMHO, that was a red herring to “explain” who supposedly did the hacking, and so FBI didn’t need to get involved with their server. Probably to plead ignorance if something went wrong, because they know everything. Anyway, Assange and others have done just about everything but confirm it was Seth Rich who leaked the emails. And the FBI Anon confirmed, & named a couple of people involved with his death in a post. I still don’t know why the left/deep state wanted to implicate Russia in all of this, but there are reasons. Another story for another day. But I seriously doubt any Russians did a thing. In any of this. Not the emails, dirty dossier, none of it. Where, & who are these Russians. IMHO it is a figment. Everything was made up by left to make us hate Russia, and to blame them for all of Left’s crimes. I don’t think my view on “zero Russia involvement” is very popular, but Jim Kallstrom, ex-FBI asst. Director, said the same thing tonight on Judge Jeanine, which made me happy. And Feinstein has been mentioned concerning other things. Not sure about voting fraud, but something big.

      Q says some disinformation is needed to trap the traitors. Remember even Admiral Mike Rogers played along from 2007 ’til recently to gain as much intelligence as possible to built the case of treason.
      Also remember the plan to take this whole traitorous Hussein/Hillary apparatus down took 2 years to complete. It was none other than patriot Flynn and Rogers that got the ball rolling, recruited Trump as the truth standard bearer in the white house.
      At Trumps first day in the white house he already was one year into the plan to take them down. Flynn intentionally took one for the team which will be exposed. Mueller/Strzok/Hussein/Hillary et al had Flynn in their cross hairs for years as he was MI Chief in our DOD going back to Benghazi, Bergdahl and other traitorous games they undertook. Flynn and Rogers also played along.
      It is my opinion that Priestap just may also played along knowing a plan was in motion to take them down ergo did what was needed to collect insider info. Just a guess!

    The Intelligence Community IG notified the FBI on July 6th about 811c referral for mishandling of sensitive information.

    Mark Guiliano (Deputy Director, FBI) informs Sally Yates verbally on July 13 and then again July 20, noting that the Point of Contact (POC) is Randall Coleman, Counter Intelligence Division.

    Late July the letters from the FBI to various other agencies and companies ‘requesting’ the preservation of records start going out. The first batch, sent out the end of July, were signed by Charles Kable IV, Section Chief Counterintelligence Division of the Washington Field Office. However by mid to late August, the letters were going out under Strzok’s name.

    Perhaps Charles Kable was a little too old school to bend the rules and Strzok was sent to replace him as an internal insurance policy. If Strzok’s tryst with Page was already known and if his pro-Clinton bias was as well, he would be perfect – black mail material on a mission to save us from ourselves.

    Would Priestap have been the one moving ‘assets’ around?

    Maybe the director is just a figure head with no real power. Since Priestap is the last one standing, perhaps he is the one who is really calling the shots.

    “After information has been obtained from any source, it must be corroborated, analyzed and synthesized. A useful investigation is not a data dump and there is no such thing as a “democracy of facts” – not everything an investigator finds is important or even accurate. In fact, due diligence based on findings without context can be just as dangerous as having no information at all. Readily available search tools, such as Google, can be helpful but are no substitute for a thorough and effective due diligence investigation.”

    I think Priestap and Horowitz are “fail-safes” so-to-speak to protect the malfeasance that has occurred and, thereby, save some rather large hides — pardon the choice of words.

    In other words, I think Horowitz (through his report) will try to contain the malfeasance, focus it, and thereby accomplish two main goals: 1) keep the scope of malfeasance as small and localized as possible to inflict minimal damage and repercussions; and 2) satisfy the public need for justice in the matter to solidify reputation and insure the integrity of the institutions. If this is what is being set up, it is catastrophic for democracy. Why? It is a band aid fix to a deep-rooted problem and will not solve the problem. It is like using an anti-infective medication on the wrong pathogen. Government cannot police itself with such broad corruption as is what is occurring here so, conversely, the IG cannot police the FBI-DOJ.

    A special counsel MUST be appointed here. A special counsel conducted by a neutral independent outsider with no ties to either party, answering only to truth, justice, and the American people. Horowitz was an Obama appointee. For that reason alone, a special counsel is needed. I have yet to see truth and justice coming from an Obama appointee. Horowitz has great potential to be conflicted here — not only for this reason, but also because he is an insider. Bill Priestap is a Mueller appointee. I have yet to see anything oozing integrity coming from Mueller’s farce of a witch hunt. Can we rely on such a person’s appointee? The very fact Mueller continues this miscarriage of justice (remember when we all learned about right to speedy trials in our civics class?) makes me question the motives here. Mueller placed partisan hacks on his investigative team, he brought charges against a man who was, in my opinion, was goaded into a process crime, continues this exorbitant “investigation” on the taxpayer’s dime farce, and has clearly turned a blind eye to the Russia “collusion” on the Clinton-Obama-DOJ-FBI side.

      The IG as I understand it cannot prosecute anyone. His role is to investigate and make findings and recommendations. So yes we need a special counsel/prosecutor.

      The process we are following now of holding various hearings is too cumbersome and time consuming. Too many people are involved, half of who are from the other side who see their main task as obstructing the process.

      Mueller followed up very quickly on his mandate, interviewed witnesses in short order, obtained documents, brought people before the grand jury, and now appears ready to wind up his investigation. That’s what we need here. One of the main advantages a special counsel has is he can flip key witnesses to more quickly and efficiently find out the entire extent of wrongdoing, who all was involved, what was there role, how far up did the conspiracy go.

      So yea, it’s absolutely necessary, before people’s memories start turning dim, to appoint a special counsel. There are plenty of indications of wrongdoing to justify it. All we need is an AG who will get off his dead rear end and take action. I’m not sure Sessions will do that unless ordered. His comments so far indicate he sees his role as “protector of the establishment.”

All are insiders, except for several outsiders, with the list of outsiders growing each day!

          “The special counsel would not be within the DoJ. It would be not of the DoJ. It would be independent outsider…unlike what we have with Mueller. Mueller is an insider. He is compromised in all ways which make him inappropriate to touch it – for GS he was . He is was the FBI Director from 2001 – 2013. Like I said, government cannot police itself.”
          There is no provision under the US Constitution for such 4th governmental branch to “prosecute anything”! Prosecution itself is a direct contradiction to the Judaical concept of ‘innocent until proven guilty’! No US government agency has any constitutional ability to prosecute, intimidate, harass, dispose, or charge wrongdoing of any US Citizen. It is the DOJ and FBI that are totally unconstitutional! DOES THIS NEED BE FIXED, no longer ignored, under the existing US Constitution? YES!
          Perhaps the aggregate US state governments of this Republic can provide some guidance. But not via congresscriters dumber than a box of rocks!

        The special counsel would be from outside the DOJ. It insures a measure of independence. The alternative is to leave the investigation of DOJ officials inside the DOJ itself. That’s unacceptable. If we were to get a hard-nosed prosecutor from outside, he could do a good job.

        The problem is we gotta get on this. It’s taking too long. We’re a year into this and have no idea how involved the higher ups were, probably the most important question. A special counsel can subpoena witnesses, haul them before the grand jury, grant immunity where warranted, flip key witnesses, and generally not have to consult with 20 people and take votes on every decision. It’s much more effective. It also affords the possibility of getting a few quick indictments, like Mueller did, which takes the investigation out of the Congressional food fight atmosphere to an investigation the public will realize is serious.

        But Trump has to get on Sessions to get going. He’s dragging his feet, stonewalling, protecting the rear guard, etc. nothing is being done in terms of prosecution. If Sessions continues to play CYA games, it’s time for a new AG.

          I can’t emphasize how important it is to appoint a special counsel and get the investigation going. There’s plenty of indication of criminal wrongdoing in Hillary’s funding of the dossier and its use before the FISA court. A special counsel should have been appointed as soon as the memo came out. In the Russia investigation, you have three committees and a special counsel operating all at the same time. So there’s no reason to hold back. We’re amassing vast amounts of incriminating information, but it’s just piling up. It’s not being used to prosecute the guilty. This is a huge mistake.

          Sessions has not and will not appoint a special counsel. He’s a long-time swamp critter defender of the government. We’re gonna get nothing out of him. We need a new AG ASAP. Trump has to get going. All we have now is a food fight between the Democrats and Nunes/Goodlatte/Grassley. We desperately need an official investigation with indictments.

            Could not agree with you more. Something of this scope and magnitude is unprecedented…and yes, a special (outsider) counsel is the only option as it remains unclear the reason(s) for A.G. Sessions inaction at this time. And time is of the essence. I would venture to guess the establishment’s intentions are to drag out the Mueller farce as long as possible – not only to drag the “investigation” out until the midterm elections, but I think also to contain, subvert, and obstruct. And the so the story goes: A clever jewel thief goes into a high end jewelry store to steal millions of jewels…not by breaking in, by applying for a job. What better way to control all aspects of the heist than to be close at hand?

    White HAT ? OR is his enigma status intentional ? There is VALUE in the UNKNOWN to us and the BLACK HATS but known to Trump .

    It seems to me that candidate Trump had a pretty good ideal of the players scorecard . We know Admiral Mike Rogers changed the game as he visited president elect Trump . Trump moved his transition HQ to his NJ golf course after that visit .

    The 12/21/2017 Executive Order was IMO a DECLARATION OF WAR on the DEEP STATE SHADOW GOVERNMENT . A HISTORIC DOCUMENT indeed !! You see if you cut off the money of our enemy and you are COMMANDER IN CHIEF already ….well the GLOBAL “ELITES ” to use a line from THE OUTLAW JOSE WALES ….when two road men though they had Jose Wales captured for the reward …” See Elijah …pull them pistols and he’s harmless as a HEEL HOUND ”

    Without control of our Military and blocked access their WEALTH …Trump has pulled their pistols !

    The Rothschild selling BLACK FOREST and divesting their hedge fund APACHE !! are pretty good clues to my wild speculations .

    It is important to understand that the current attention is on tiers 4& 5 of the modern Feudal system . The top tier is the owners of the NOT federal and NO reserve .
    1. Rothschild Banks of London and Berlin
    2. Lazard Brothers Bank of Paris
    3. Israel Moses Sieff Banks of Italy
    4. Warburg Bank of Hamburg, Germany and Amsterdam
    5. Kuhn Loeb Bank of New York
    6. Lehman Brothers Bank of New York
    7. Goldman Sachs Bank of New York
    8. Chase Manhattan Bank of New York (Controlled By Rockefellers)

    It is my guess that AG Sessions , OIG Michael Horowitz and the Trump WHITE HATS have enough evidence already to try and convict the traitors , SEDITIONISTS and criminals at levels 4 & 5 of the pyramid .

    If the Trump administration were to just DRAIN THE SWAMP on those tiers alone the top 3 tiers would simply replace them and begin again .

    I am reminded of Mick Mulvaney being put in charge of the money laundering operation dubbed CFPB . Oh the outrage by the democommunists when Mick asked for a 2018 budget of $0.00 !

    That was THEIR slush fund !!

    Keeping that in mind now the new Trump FED CHAIR , Jerome Powell , has taken over for GLOBALIST Janet Yellin . Now I don’t know Jerome but I do know to TRUST IN TRUMP .

    What if ….Ole Jerome is in place to ” Mick Mulvaney ” the FED !! ? Well not exactly the same but to be there as THE FED is slowly phased out and the constitutional SOUND TREASURY DOLLAR is restored ? ” Signal to POTUS THEY CONTROL THE MARKET ” was a Qanon ??? 2/5/18

    VANGUARD is a wealth management fund comprised largely of the DEEP STATE SHADOW GOVERNMENT MILITARY INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX that make up levels 2 & 3 in the Modern FED Feudal system pyramid .

    AG Sessions is taking MAMMOTH amounts of HEAT for not acting yet …waiting waiting waiting is driving people INSANE !! They can taste the blood of Hillary and Obama and their MAFIA Alinsky government .

    TRUMP IMO is going for the FULL MONTE !! the NEWS is the SHADOW GOVERNMENT . They are Baghdad Bob ..” We have them surrounded in their tanks ” even as The statue of Saddam toppled !!!

    I’m in the front car of the TRUMP roller coaster enjoying this WILD RIDE . Destination #MAGA .

    OK I’ve gone on as usual but this last wild speculation of mine is important ….The new TREASURY dollars will be printed and exchanged through the parallel banking system SUNDANCE reported on .

    A MAIN STREET BANKING SYSTEM through community banks and credit unions . We may see the return of the SAVINGS AND LOAN as well . I have NO IDEA the exchange rate but lets just use an example of the first wave of exchanges as a $1 FED NOTE for $1 TREASURY DOLLAR .

    The MEDIA will exclaim ..” Trump is a DICTATOR printing his own money …don’t be fooled ” and all our liberal friends and family will loose their a$$ . By the time the transformation back to SOUND MONEY is done a TRUMP TREASURY DOLLAR will be worth ( my guess) THOUSANDS of FED FIAT MONOPOLY MONEY !!

    I hope to purchase a PRIUS from a liberal at say $10 TREASURY DOLLARS that may be worth $30,000 FED NOTES ,( $1 TREASURY worth $3,000 FED NOTE ) . I will chop the top off and have the coolest Golf Cart in the neighborhood !!

    COLLAPSE THE FED ..as END THE FED is a political solution that will NEVER HAPPEN . THE FED owns CONgress and the UNIPARTY

    Crazy HUH !! Oh it only gets better from HERE !!

    An aside gentlemen, if I may. If I’m not mistaken, it’s been reported that the DNC servers, were shown NOT to have been hacked, but rather data was downloaded via flash drive or some such media.

    I said this when the memo first came out, so since Sundance is asking the question directly, I’ll repost it here.

    I think its pretty obvious that if Priestap isn’t a white hat, he’s clearly cooperating. My theory is that if the stories are to be believed that Wray wanted parts of the Nunes Memo redacted, it was likely to protect Priestap’s name in there. The portion of the memo he was mentioned in was a bit of a bombshell because it revealed that they had just barely begun corroborating the info in the dossier before it was used for the FISA warrant AND it was the first time Priestap’s name got tied to into this.

    If you look at the phrasing of the memo, whenever they want to make a point of using what someone said,one way they do it is to use the full quote. For example, in point #3 regarding Bruce Ohr talking to Steele, they use the full quote which appears to be from Glen Simpson’s testimony OR they simply state who said what and where and when as in point #4 when they mention McCabe (who) testified before the Committee (where) in December 2017 (when) that no surveillance warrant would have been sought without the dossier (what).

    But if you look at the way they phrase Priestap’s mention in the memo, they do it differently. They phrase it differently:
    According to the head of the FBI’s counterintelligence division, Assistant Director Bill Priestap” (who)
    corroboration of the Steele dossier was in its “infancy” at the time of the initial Page FISA application (what)

    But that’s it. There’s no mention of where or when. If he testified to that, why not simply phrase it the same way as McCabe’s testimony? Stating that it was testimony, ergo under oath, would only strengthen their argument. But leaving it out, makes you wonder when and where Priestap made that statement. My contention is that Priestap offered that bit of info willingly to them, likely in a statement.

    Remember this also: When Schiff made a huge deal about the memo being altered, it was revealed that two of the edits were at request of the FBI. I would bet that one of them was about Priestap. My guess it the original memo likely read “According to a statement provided by the head of the FBI’s counterintelligence division, Assistant Director Bill Priestap…” and they simply removed the words “a statement provided by”. Remove those and you have the same phrase as it appeared in the final form. Easy peasy.

    Even if you don’t think Wray is a White Hat (I myself am undecided), as Sundance mentioned Priestap is the only one still in his original position which could mean that Wray has been given an ultimatum by the committee: He’s a source. Leave him along or face your own problems.

    As for Comey not mentioning his name during the testimony but throwing him under the bus, I don’t think it matters, ultimately. If its true that Priestap did recommend not briefing congress, Comey was still the Director. The final call was still his, not Priestap’s.

    If, on the other hand, Comey lied and simply threw Priestap under the bus to get himself off the hook then its just simply more motivation for E.W. Priestap to cooperate. Unless I missed something, Comey’s mention of him in his testimony and incidental mentions in the various text messages are the only times Priestap’s name came up in any of this.

    So is he ultimately a White Hat? Unknown. I tend to think he is, but at the very least he’s someone who appears to have made a decision that he wasn’t going to be taken down for something he didn’t do, regardless of his motivations.

      Interesting analysis. Don’t you think it would have been a strategic error to identify Priestap as a source to Wray? Rosenstein is in all likelihood a black hat, Wray is unclear. Wray’s past allegiances have been to the very people identified in this cabal. Now certainly that cannot be used against him, but I think due to the chance his allegiances remain with the “black hats” shall we say, confiding sources to him would be a bad move.

        Truth be told, I’m in the fence as far as Wray goes. I don’t think he’s a black hat. I think at worst he’s hatless and by that I mean he’s not on anyone’s side except that of protecting the honor of the rank and file FBI employees that are just trying to do what’s right.

        That said, I’m leaning toward Wray actually being a white hat for two very simple reasons. First, by the time he was hired president Trump already knew what was going on. No way he doesn’t put someone in that job that would undermine him. Recall that it took a while to name Comey’s successor that makes sense if you need to make sure you’re not ending up with Comey 2.0.

        Second, I believe Wray wanted the memo redacted to keep Priestap’s name out of the public eye for as long as possible. He was trying to protect the guy.

    tl’dr: My thoughts- Sundance guessed right, and Priestap reached out, to get on the side of the White Hats, realizing the jig was up, or he’d been fooled by his subordinates. (Hanlon’s Razor applies when looking at these political syncophants at the top of the FBI).

    Follow Sundance’s suggestion to look at the earlier timelines with the perspective of what we know now, and consider connections between people then, on the basis of new info:

    https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2017/03/03/occams-razor-did-nsa-admiral-mike-rogers-warn-trump-on-november-17th-2016/

    “Occam’s Razor. NSA Director Admiral Mike Rogers didn’t want to participate in the spying scheme (Clapper, Brennan, Etc.), which was the baseline for President Obama’s post presidency efforts to undermine Donald Trump and keep Trump from digging into the Obama labyrinth underlying his remaining loyalists. After the October spying operation went into effect, Rogers unknown loyalty was a risk to the Obama objective. 10 Days after the election Rogers travels to President-Elect Trump without notifying those who were involved in the intel scheme.”
