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.

    This guy is an enigma. The two lovers stated a number of times that Bill wasn’t the smartest or most emotionally balanced guy they worked with. Many of their comments referred to Andy as the main guy they were dealing with. I am also curious to see if he turned “state’s evidence”.

  7. Joe S says:

    O well, in my lost post, here it is paraphrased.

    In a nutshell, I sid that Priestap was also the one who accompanied Sally Yates to the Whitehouse meeting with Don Meghan when they set up Flynn.

    Then I said that it is plausible that Priestap has flipped, and he may be highest ranking person with direct knowledge of Obama’s involvement in the set up of President Trump, especially the post-lectin phase. Did he report to Yates?

    I also mentioned that Ron Johnson mentioned that there was an informant who gave info on secret meetings of the “secret society.” Could it be Priestap?

    This is from the Nunes memo: “According to the head of the FBI’s counterintelligence division, Assistant Director Bill Priestap, corroboration of the Steele dossier was in its “infancy” at the time of the initial Page FISA application” From that we can tell that Priestap told someone something.

    Another thing I found, and maybe this has been talked about before, but on July 26th, 2017 our friend Bill Priestap testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee (Sen. Chuck Grassley) about the Foreign Agents Registration Act…and guess who is sitting right next to Mr. Bill Priestap??? Inspector General Michael Horowitz!

      Something nags at me whenever I read the quote you posted from the Nunes’ memo. Keep in mind we know there were two FISA applications submitted to the FISC and the initial one was denied which has been reported as a rarity. IIRC, I believe that first application was submitted / denied in the June 2017 timeframe. Could this be the “initial” Page FISA application BP is referring to? That is about the same timeframe Steele made his first contact with the FBI and his Clinton-Steel dossier would have still been in its “infancy”.

The incredible reverence Page and Strzok seem to have for those two is a little sickening. They diss “Bill” quite a lot.

  13. Not sure of the relevance to him keeping his job, but his wife Sabina Menschel is mega connected. She is President and COO of Nardello & Co, a large private-eye firm, and her dad was a Senior Director at Goldman Sachs (dang those people are everywhere!). Also, according to her company bio she too worked for the FBI:

    “…Sabina [also] served as a Special Advisor in the Directorate of Intelligence at the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s headquarters in Washington, DC. In that capacity, she worked with senior management to refine and strengthen the FBI’s intelligence gathering capabilities and implement its intelligence transformation efforts in response to the recommendations of the 9/11 Commission.”

    Here’s an interesting article:

    Just when you think we have learned most of what there is to learn about Hillary Clinton’s emails, a new mole pops up out of the hole.

    Last week, Judicial Watch released State Department documents including a declaration from FBI Special Agent E.W. Priestap, the supervisor of the agency’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email activities, stating that the former secretary of state was the subject of a grand jury investigation related to her BlackBerry email accounts.

    The declaration was produced in response to Judicial Watch’s lawsuit seeking to force Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to take steps to “recover emails of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton” and other U.S. Department of State employees (Judicial Watch, Inc. v. Rex Tillerson (No. 1:15-cv-00785)). We originally filed the lawsuit against then-Secretary of State John Kerry. The Trump State Department filing includes details of the agency’s continuing and shameful refusal to refer the Clinton email issue to the Justice Department, as the law requires.

    In the filing, Priestap declares under penalty of perjury that the FBI “obtained Grand Jury subpoenas related to the Blackberry e-mail accounts, which produced no responsive materials, as the requested data was outside the retention time utilized by those providers.”

    On April 30, 2015, Judicial Watch sued Kerry after the State Department failed to take action on a letter sent to Kerry “notifying him of the unlawful removal of the Clinton emails and requesting that he initiate enforcement action pursuant to the [Federal Records Act],” including working through the attorney general to recover the emails.

    After initially being dismissed by the district court, Judicial Watch’s lawsuit was revived on appeal by a decision of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit on December 27, 2016.

    While at the State Department, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton conducted official government business using an unsecured email server and email accounts. Her top aides and advisers also used non-“” email accounts to conduct official business. Clinton left office February 1, 2013.

    The FBI convened a grand jury to investigate Hillary Clinton in 2016. Why is this information being released only now?

    It is disturbing that the State Department, Justice Department, and FBI are still trying to protect Hillary Clinton. President Trump needs to clean house at all these agencies.

        Here is what I think happened. Read this:

        (Which quotes Sundance quite a bit!)

        And this in particular:

        12/2015 – FBI Director James B. Comey named E.W. “Bill” Priestap as the assistant director of the Counterintelligence Division at FBI Headquarters (FBIHQ) in Washington, D.C. Mr. Priestap most recently served as the deputy assistant director of the Intelligence Operations Branch in the Directorate of Intelligence at FBIHQ.

        There is also much about his wife, who I believe he met while SHE was working for the FBI. Her role is apparently an INVESTIGATOR with this Nardello company, but their purpose is ASSET RECOVERY.

        I believe he was brought in specifically to deal with the Hillary email problem – as a fall guy and shield, as SD says. His background says ADMINISTRATOR, not spy. His rise through Chicago after 9/11 likely “prepared him” to not see the right things, by training him to focus on everything but the people who would eventually use him.

        It is possible that he either authentically played along, as both a chump and part of the plot, or was informed prior to some of the shenanigans, although if I’m right that he was mostly an admin and a figurehead, then it would be best to NOT rely on a pokerface he doesn’t have, and therefore the IG would NOT wise him up until as late as possible.

        I think he WAS wised up at some point, and is now fully cooperating, although there was likely much he did not know, as he was COMEY’S MUSHROOM.

    I’m only on page 119 of the texts. But so far, I get the impression that McCabe was the leader. He coordinated through Page directly to Strzok and his team.

    When Comey reopened the email investigation (that McCabe) had suppressed, McCabe-Page-Strzok threw Comey under the bus. They literally stated that. I equate this to a 3 star general stabbing a 4 star in the back. If he’s THAT bold…

    I can’t see Strzok-Page as lovers. She calls him friend and the dude multiple times.

    If Preistap flipped, Strzok and Page would have figured it out early, and it will be in their (so far unreleased) text messages.

    But if that’s the case, we won’t see any of those text messages until Priestap is announced publicly as a government witness.

    E.W. “Bill” Priestap is an enigma.

    Your thoughts?”


    It appears that Preistap has been flipped, and is cooperating with the investigation(s).

    BUT, if the ‘white hats’ wanted to keep that a secret, they would have implicated Priestap, forced his resignation, and then had him (Priestap) wear a wire (the old fashioned way) or just monitor his communications remotely with the other gang members, to extract more information.

    That didn’t happen.

    Instead, and IF Priestap was flipped, the investigators decided to make it obvious to all of Priestap’s colleagues, which you might do to put pressure on the rest of the gang, i.e., if everybody knows Priestap flipped and cooperating, the other gang members better consider doing the same before any possible deals for leniency are gone.

    One more possibility. Priestap did NOT flip, but the investigators want the gang to think he DID, so the investigators purposely ignore him, which has the intended effect of making all of Priestap’s colleagues believe he has flipped, turning up the pressure cooker on the whole gang.


    • scott467 says:

      Certainly the investigators have psychological profiles on ALL of the targets. Maybe Priestap is the weakest link, and therefore the best target.

      Maybe they bring Priestap in and try to make a deal — certainly they have talked to everyone by this point — but Priestap refuses. The investigators can still make it look like he’s cooperating by only focusing on everybody BUT Priestap.

      This has the desirable effect of causing distrust and dissension among the conspirators, even if NOBODY flipped. This leads to further communications (which are monitored of course), infighting, and may lead to someone flipping who wouldn’t have flipped previously.

        It was my understanding that Priestap is thoroughly implicated in many of the Strzok / Page texts, and then there’s his (Priestap’s) recommendation to Comey that Comey NOT inform Congress of the Title 1 surveillance against the campaign of DJT.

        Why Comey would ever follow a recommendation to violate the Law is another matter, one which Mr. Comey can try to explain.


  31. Bill Rhea says:

    My speculation is that Priestap is another of the unsung heroes and either has been the ‘Deep Throat’ all along, or was flipped early on. Nothing else makes sense given his absence from the narrative. Likely is early on he was setup to be the fall guy, figured it out and took steps necessary to wear a white hat.

    I stumbled upon a video by urban moving (?), entitled “Bill Priestap FBI CI Chief And His Wife Sabina Menschel, The Fed/Mossad”

    Naturally, I watched it. I can’t vouch for who made it or all the data, but below are confirmed interesting wife + MIL facts, plus a bonus of FIL.

    1. FTA: Ronay Menschel, Sabina’s mother, Elected to New York Fed Board of Directors
    March 19, 1998

    NEW YORK—Ronay Menschel, president of Phipps Houses and its subsidiary, Phipps Houses Services, Inc., has been elected to the board of directors of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, it was announced today.

    2. Ronay was one of the people Ed Koch’s said was behind his career. This NY article gave her background prior back prior to her marriage, Congressional staffer.

    FTA: Mrs. Menschel denied that she herself was “the woman behind Ed Koch” although he said so.

    3. Richard Menschel, Sabina’s father, senior director Goldman Sachs

    4. He says Sabina worked for K2 Intelligence, which was founded by Kroll, who he states is the Mossad connection.

    5. K2 Intelligence, a private investigative company that works for the government. An article, “Is your partner having an affair? There is nothing that the new generation of private investigators can’t uncover, from affairs to multimillion-pound corporate fraud.”

    FTA: Corporate-intelligence gatherers in the new era often work quietly behind the glare of numbers on screens, assembling crack teams of analysts mining code for patterns, anomalies and clues in seams of  big data. Less Mr Bond, more Mr Robot. Jules Kroll, the original corporate spy who founded J Kroll Associates in 1972, now presides over K2 Intelligence with his son, Jeremy. The firm’s tasks have included applying data-mining techniques used by governments for uncovering terror plots to help trace the billions lost in the Bernie Madoff Ponzi-scheme scandal.

    Urban Moving attributes all of the above to be cut outs. Priestap is under wraps — by everybody.

    By late October 2016, private polling was starting to show that Trump might just win this thing, and a bad case of flop sweat started to afflict the small group participants. In addition, Rogers had issued his FISA audit findings and the Ship of Deceit started taking on water. Carlin was the first to go overboard and swim away as fast as he could. Comey tried the lame gambit of resurrecting the Clinton email investigation in hopes of concealing his culpability. McCabe took the mattresses, and the love birds were so out of it that they couldn’t shut up. Priestap grabbed the safe and jumped in the lifeboat. Mueller was late to the party and it took him a year to figure out that Trump was on to them by mid November 2016. Everything has been reverse entrapment ever since.

    Priestap’s condition of allowing the secret information to be shared was execution of a Non Disclosure Agreement (NDA) for both Blumenthal and his attorney.

    you can’t make this sh&t up!
    I think these are all valid points and can you imagine the vibe in 7th floor where agents are all looking over their shoulder at everyone and not knowing who to trust. But all organizations take their lead from the person at the top. In this case BHO and then Comey, Lynch etc.
    The rot is deep within all these agencies which include many agents too contrary to Hannity who thinks they are all white knights.
    I remember when I became a Trump supporter when he called out the CIA saying “we have our murderers too” I have never heard any candidate say these things.
    Question, Does any of this tie into Clapper, Brennen, Hayden who IMO are all criminals.
    And can we just get the 33,000 emails from the NSA, which the patriot William Binney assures us they have. Big plug for the movie “A good American” in which Binney shows how his metadata program “thin thread” which protected Americans 4th amendment was replaced by “trailblazer” which is mass surveillance of everything.
    Also remember when countering progressives ( I consider myself a classical liberal) on Papadopolis that hearsay evidence (double hearsay in this case) can not be used to get a title 1 survallicane order.
    Thank God for Trump, sundance and all the other real patriots.

    Could it be that Wray can’t let everyone “resign” at the same time simply because someone still have to shuffle the papers and attend the meetings and Wray can’t afford to fire every head of department and all their deputies and assistants without jeopardizing some important ongoing operations? I realize that the FBI is/was very busy conspiring to overthrow the duly elected President but is it too presumptuous to suggest that perhaps they have some other matters that require their attention?

    Bill’s got to be the mole. I reckon he’s flipped and is the central source for anything that’s uncertain, or that either dept (FBI/DOJ) won’t release/continue to delay/send incomplete.

    How else could the conductor remain altogether ‘anonymous’?

    Haven’t I read on this site that Priestap is a “white hat” in this scandal?


    • churchmouse says:

      There are no real ‘hats’, only opportunists, depending on which way the wind is blowing.

      The intel source informing Brendan Dilley (congressional candidate, AZ) has laid it out well:

      ‘Get away from Paradigm on who is “Good vs Bad”… find out who can get leveraged.’


      ‘ … once you started getting emotionally attached to people in this story, you start having a hard time accepting new information or even accepting THE TRUTH
      This is one of the risks of getting emotionally vested (mockingly – “But I liked him :(“)
      Let the information come to you and then let the truth “rise to the top” and who gives a damn about personality.
      Think about how emotionally invested they became in Obama.’

    Priestap is connected to Big Money and Big Snooping

    How husbands and wives figure in the latest government scandal revelations
    By Frank Friday

    There’s a nice post on Thread Reader identifying the man at the center of all the Trump-Russia-dossier crap: Bill Priestap, Peter Strzok’s boss and James Comey’s confidant. He knows everything and would have made any decision to pay for the Fusion GPS dossier. Oddly, he has escaped media scrutiny so far.

    The one thing they sort of miss on is his wife, Sabina Menschel, who is not just some consultant, but the current head of the D.C. office of Nardello & Co. That’s the top private-eye firm in the Beltway.

    So the man the FBI has keeping all its secrets is married to the top private snoop in Washington.

    It would be revealing, no doubt, to see what Democratic-affiliated law firms and media shops in D.C. use Nardello. Let’s hope congressional investigators are looking into this. Ms. Menshel, by the way, is the daughter and niece of Goldman Sachs zillionaire brothers Richard and Robert Menshel, big-time Democrat donors.

    Since Comey slapped a “fall guy” sign on his back, dude is likely singing like Pavarotti.

    I’m sorry…. IF this guy has his “get out of jail card” in hand….then, haul him up to the hill and let’s hear him sing in one of the Intel oversight committees live on CSPAN…simple…let his words tell the world just how smelly and bad things are in DOJ/FBI and other critter corners of the underworld; while teams of trusted MARSHALS serve ARREST WARRANTS on all the other players… Perp walks at 6pm…

    OR…Black-bag him and get the water dripping down GitMo way….one way or another – the song needs singing…

    I also watched a video by “urban moving” in which the researcher said that Edward R. Priestap had a Jewish mother so was Jewish. The researcher also made the jump to say that Priestap is Jewish/Mossad.


    • Urban says:

      Yes, By jewish law he is and of COurse I say he is Mossad because he helped cover up and play dumb on the Israeli torture of a Palestinian activist in the mid 2000’s, his geni profile is managed by a jewish ancestry buff mega ADL Hollywood asshat…need I say more?
