2017: State Department Spox: “The Steele Dossier Was Never Used for FISA Application”…

It’s always an interesting exercise to take new and confirmed information and go back to see the claims from the key stakeholders when the initial trail of the information was discovered.  This is one such example from July 2017.

Now that Chairman Devin Nunes, Chuck Grassley and the key players themselves, have discovered and admitted the U.S. State Department was heavily involved in passing along Clinton opposition research to Chris Steele to create the “Clinton-Steele Dossier”, it’s interesting to look at how the former State Department spokesperson -in place during all the events- responded last year when the Clinton-Steele Dossier was thought to be part of the underlying evidence for the DOJ/FBI FISA application.

Former State Department spokesperson Marie Harf, a person in direct and continuous contact with all the principle agents during the 2016 information flow, was confronted in July 2017 and adamantly denied the dossier was part of the FISA application. WATCH:

Looking beyond the transparent lying and subsequent collapse of credibility, the key takeaway here is how State Department officials knew what was going on in 2016, recognized the risk presented by that action in 2017, and were willing to walk the plank because they were certain none of it would ever come to light.

Jonathan Winer – […] In 2013, I returned to the State Department at the request of Secretary of State John F. Kerry, whom I had previously served as Senate counsel. Over the years, Steele and I had discussed many matters relating to Russia. He asked me whether the State Department would like copies of new information as he developed it.

I contacted Victoria Nuland, a career diplomat who was then assistant secretary of state for European and Eurasian affairs, and shared with her several of Steele’s reports. She told me they were useful and asked me to continue to send them. Over the next two years, I shared more than 100 of Steele’s reports with the Russia experts at the State Department, who continued to find them useful. None of the reports related to U.S. politics or domestic U.S. matters, and the reports constituted a very small portion of the data set reviewed by State Department experts trying to make sense of events in Russia.  (read more)

(Grassley Memo – page #6)

Mr Winer – WaPo: […] In September 2016, Steele and I met in Washington and discussed the information now known as the “dossier.” Steele’s sources suggested that the Kremlin not only had been behind the hacking of the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton campaign but also had compromised Trump and developed ties with his associates and campaign.

I was allowed to review, but not to keep, a copy of these reports to enable me to alert the State Department. I prepared a two-page summary and shared it with Nuland, who indicated that, like me, she felt that the secretary of state needed to be made aware of this material.

[…] In late September, I spoke with an old friend, Sidney Blumenthal … While talking about that hacking, Blumenthal and I discussed Steele’s reports. He showed me notes gathered by a journalist I did not know, Cody Shearer, that alleged the Russians had compromising information on Trump of a sexual and financial nature.  … On my own, I shared a copy of these notes with Steele, to ask for his professional reaction. … I agreed to let him keep a copy of the Shearer notes. …  I did not expect them to be shared with anyone in the U.S. government. … But I learned later that Steele did share them — with the FBI (link)

The bigger story behind the 2017 interview with Marie Harf, when contrast against 2018 reality, is recognition of how vast the network of people were within the entire effort to launder political campaign opposition research -provided by Hillary Clinton- to create surveillance upon the Trump campaign.

Officials at the top of the FBI and Department of Justice; officials in the intelligence apparatus of the ODNI, CIA and NSA; and officials at the top of the U.S. Department of State – to include Secretary John Kerry; were all working in common political cause.

Beyond the political talking points, when you simply point out the provable facts the Director of the FBI, Attorney General of the United States and the Secretary of State, were all deeply within the information loop there’s no way possible to extract President Obama from the network.  This is how the collapsing house of cards eventually brings down the office of the presidency.

What would be the fall-back, or alternative, narrative?

The talking points are still a few weeks away, but there’s only one possible angle: The President was unaware of the action of his Attorney General, FBI Director, Director of National Intelligence, CIA Director and Secretary of State?

Absurd.

      I can’t emphasize this enough: these people who smile and lie to achieve their political objective, especially when that objective is to further enslave me and install a dictatorship on the country (Communist, globalist or otherwise), and EVEN IF THEY BELIEVE THEY ARE SIMPLY PLAYING A FUN “GAME” WHICH THEY LIKE TO “WIN”, are in fact declaring themselves to be my mortal enemies. This can only be the case, as their objective is to use government power to use me in any way they wish.

      “So it comes about that someone who tries to get another man into his absolute power thereby puts himself into a state of war with the other, for such an attempt amounts to a declaration of a plan against the life of the other man. If someone wants to get me
      into his power without my consent, I have reason to conclude that he would use me as
      he pleased when he had got me there, and would destroy me if he wanted to; for no-one can want to have me in his absolute power unless it’s to compel me by force to something
      that is against the right of my freedom, i.e. to make me a slave. To be sure of my own survival I must be free from such force; and reason tells me to look on him—the person who wants me in his power—as an enemy to my survival, wanting to take away the freedom that is the fence to it. So someone who tries to enslave me thereby puts himself into a state of war with me. Someone wants to take away the freedom of someone else must be supposed to have a plan to take away everything else from the person, because freedom is the foundation of all the rest; and that holds in a commonwealth as well as in the state of nature.”

            ……………………………………

            So Valerie Jarrett (VJ) talked to Adam Schiff (AS) for 42 minutes and 13 seconds. That call was obviously recorded by NSA, and Trump (or the white hats in the DOJ / NSA) has it all.

            There were (at least) “2 listeners”, which satisfies one of the witness requirements for the prosecution of Treason.

            Article 3, Section 3 is about Treason.

            ………………………………
            Section 3.

            Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort. No person shall be convicted of treason unless on the testimony of two witnesses to the same overt act, or on confession in open court.

            The Congress shall have power to declare the punishment of treason, but no attainder of treason shall work corruption of blood, or forfeiture except during the life of the person attainted.

    Circle back to earlier times in this entire narrative, by SD. It was proposed that the Presidents (Obama’s) Daily Brief or PDB was the source of Congressman Nunes’ first reaction. We now also have the text messages. Obama may not have been “directing” the operation but he sure was aware of it. Consider, why would he so publically reverse course to authorize all the personal actions contrary to the hiring freeze and open access to classified materials at the end of his administration? He had to know a cleansing action was required.

          Exactly. It was to be Obama for 8 yrs. laying the groundwork and keeping the hounds at bay by using the race card. Then crooked Hillary was to continue the destruction and the hounds would have been kept at bay by playing the gender card. The SCOTUS would have been packed w/activist communist judges, guns banned and confiscated, the thought police would have been out in force. The CIA/NSA/deep state would have spied on every one and the billionaires would have made sure all jobs were shipped offshore. The country would have been flooded w/criminal illegals to mop up those who resisted.

          After Hillary, the elections would have been so rigged, the commies would have taken over the country.

          We have a very short time to save it by peaceful means. I think people have to be executed for treason and that includes Hillary and Obama.The republic is at stake. Time to get real and take the action necessary to save it.

      As has been described at length by SD, the PDB went from a very tightly held document (two recipients as a low, I recall, in one administration) to 30+/ish recipients under 44. It went wider, lower, and further than in any other administration. And it’s easy to imagine that strict document security was a joke, so who knows how many people ultimately read it. (Remember statements by Farkas and Maxine Waters?) All info was weaponized under 44 and I’m sure the brief contained crap that earlier administrations would have blanched at. Obama knew and, I believe, EVERYBODY knew. Ripe interrogation list for a Federal prosecutor and, maybe, Sessions will get his turn to play “let’s see who we catch in the perjury trap.”

        Dekester, Tegan, Tuaranos and GrandmainTexas – I understand your sentiment and may even have an argument for putting the money one might spend on a college education, incrementally into a 401k and by the time they’re 50 they’d have millions.

        That being said here’s my anecdotal tale.

        I have 3 college educated adult children. All graduated from liberal institutions. All still Trump loving staunch conservatives.

        All have tales of numbskull liberal/progressive professors trying to introduce political bs into their classrooms inappropriately. My two older ones recognized it for what it was, put their noses to the grindstone and did what was necessary and got their grades. The youngest (of course) had to confront these goofballs. Because of it he got his degree with a little more effort.

        They all have decent jobs and are upstanding patriotic American citizens.

        I didn’t do anything special raising them. Just let them know from a very early age that THEY were responsible for anything THEY did.

        It was their choice to go for a college education. I helped them but they worked while in school too. One last thing. They were all heavily involved in athletics. Kept them busy and out of trouble.

        Just my 2 cents. Not every kid with a degree from these bastions of indoctrination turn out to be liberal numbskulls. Some of them voted for Trump.

    A trip down memory lane to the Clinton Presidency, Clinton ran the CIA on US soil to cover up the missile fired downing of TWA Flight 800, using the FBI and DOJ to cover up and silence critics. That DOJ cleaner’s name was Eric Holder.
    These sane Clinton’s who created the narrative that Trump could be blackmailed by a foreign power actually were blackmailed by Israel during negotiations as Israel had obtained audio recording of Bill Clinton’s phone sex during his presidency, a critical fact seemingly memory holed.

    We are confronting a cabal of intimates, in this story line, and their individual bios need to be remembered.

    Here are a couple of such long standing relationships that should not be forgotten.

    John Kerry and Robert Mueller were high school classmates (’62) at St. Paul’s School in New Hampshire.

    Cody Shearer, named in the article and linked with Sidney Blumenthal, is the brother of Brooke Shearer (deceased), who was wife of Strobe Talbott, and a significant confidant of Hillary Clinton’s throughout the Clinton Administration.

    nearly 100% sure Obama knew all this was going on.
    He did not like to run the government much at all but his whole life has been about gathering dirt on and attacking his opponents. He was addicted to this so he could not stay totally out of the loop. He would want to be in on this action which is so foundational to his whole being.

    Can you imagine any of us totally not doing some things we really love for 2 years. Not me. Especially since it wold take on a few moments here and there to keep informed and in on the “juicy stuff”. The spice that kept him smiling day after day like we are going to get these people.

    Bottom line:
    Liberals always play the dumb card when exposed and Obama has used this dumb card frequently before. So Obama will play the dumb card again. Chance of that = nearly 100%.. But all the others will have to fall on swords to protect him.

      Another media/Deep State figure involved at the ground floor of the Foster cover-up has emerged in the wake of a criminal referral related to the FISA-warrant scandal by Senators Chuck Grassley and Lindsey Graham. According to Grassley and Graham, someone connected to the U.S. State Department was involved in the supplying of spurious Russia-connected information on Trump. After Rep. Trey Gowdy characterized the person to Martha MacCallum of Fox News, MacCallum guessed, “Sidney Blumenthal?”

      “That’d be really warm. You’re warm. Yeah,” responded Gowdy.

      According to Judicial Watch, Blumenthatl is also connected to a second dubious dossier that repeats many of the unverified claims in the Steele dossier.

      A good summation of Blumenthal’s role in the Foster cover-up, and much more, is to be found in my 2015 article, “Sidney Blumenthal, Vince Foster, and the Deep State.” Here is an excerpt:

      [As Washington correspondent for The New Yorker], Blumenthal did not write critically of the Clinton scandals, but he did indeed report on perhaps the biggest controversy of all, if his writing on the matter can properly be called reporting. It was that writing, in fact, that first brought him to my attention. The following passage is from my first installment of “America’s Dreyfus Affair: The Case of the Death of Vincent Foster”:

      [Walter] Pincus’s theme of [Vincent] Foster as fragile victim of the merciless press was picked up on by Sidney Blumenthal in his August 9 [1993] New Yorker article:

      Foster sought perspective through a number of conversations with Walter Pincus, a reporter for the Washington Post, whose wife is from Little Rock. “He couldn’t understand why the press was the way it was,” Pincus said. “It was a sense that people would print something that was wrong, and that other people would repeat it. I’d say, ‘You can’t let the press get your goat; you have to go on. This is how the game is played.’ He’d say, ‘Fine.’ ”

      The article is titled simply “The Suicide,” and it can most fairly be described as a very vigorous sales job for the notion that Deputy White House Counsel Vincent W. Foster, Jr. committed suicide because this experienced courtroom litigator couldn’t take the public scrutiny of his new job in Washington. While masquerading as an objective journalist, Blumenthal, it is clear, was already doing the work for which he would be openly paid within the year when he went to work for the White House; he was acting as a shill for the Clintons.

      Foster’s body had been discovered at an obscure Civil War relic named Fort Marcy Park off the George Washington Parkway on the Virginia side of the Potomac River late in the day on July 20. The nearest federal facility to it is the CIA headquarters complex perhaps a mile away as the crow flies, a fact never mentioned in the press. I had lived in Fairfax County, where the park is located, since 1982 and I had never heard of it. Foster, who had only been in town a few months living in Georgetown, had reported for work as usual on that Tuesday and was reported to have had a cheeseburger for lunch at his desk. Then, according to the known narrative at the time, he had left the office and wasn’t seen again until his body was discovered around 6 pm in a remote spot in this remote park that there was no record of his having previously visited.

      It is quite obvious that Blumenthal hadn’t bothered to check out the park and the unlikely spot where they tell us Foster chose to blow his brains out with an untraceable nondescript .38 caliber revolver made up of the parts of two guns, because he wrote in his New Yorker piece that the park overlooks the Potomac River. It does not. It’s somewhat near the river, but you can’t see it from there. Chain Bridge Road runs between the park and the river, and you can’t see the river from that road either until you get near to the Potomac-crossing bridge that gives the road its name, a bit further to the south.

      It would appear that practically the entire stable of Deep State media hacks who served the Clintons so well in the past have been trotted out in the effort to bring down Donald Trump.

    Wow. I was watching her body language and she clearly got rattled when Mollie asked “who picked up the funding?” Harf knew. Then tried to downplay the dossier.

    They really put themselves in a bind with that thing. The media can’t get their narrative right – first it’s evidence of collusion, then it’s worthless fantasy that had no bearing on the FISA warrants, then it had bearing, but not much and apparently through a wink and a nod, communicated to the FISC that although they weren’t supposed to include anything in the application that wasn’t independently verified by the US IC or LE, they added it to bring some levity to the room.

    Or something.

    Is it unimaginable that these same people that were complicit in putting together secret reports and dossiers of then candidate Trump were not also putting together similar lines of deceitful dossiers and reports on other potential candidates, from both sides of the Uni-Party aisle, and are holding onto those stories in case they can be used in future election cycles?

    It seems if they did this with one they would certainly do the same thing against others..

    I keep waiting for reporters to begin wondering out loud about who else was the target of U.S. spying for political blackmail; when others who may have been, perhaps still are targets with the fancy computers set up in the Jar-ret/O home in D.C. with the help of their computer google buddy
    (referencing the records that Maxine Waters described), when those folks start to realize they too could be next in line to be set up, that’s when the ball will really start to roll downhill and gain momentum.

      You are peeking down the right rabbit hole. Consider the goals of the different sources of defamatory Trump information, in all its forms (reports from Sid Vicious, dossier from Steele, confirmed intelligence reporting) were not only intended to seed the narrative, but to chum the water (which some might argue is the same thing, wait for the extended co-joined but not mixed metaphor).

      The information as passed in written form as reports to DoS and Fusion GPS eventually are “officially” received by the FBI. Long before that happens, the rumors were buzzing around D.C. like flies around a bucket of sh*t. DoS personnel, in the know, either having “officially” seen the reports or not (corridor/cafeteria grapevine) are telling tales out of school left and right on the DIP circuit. The reporters briefed by Steele, and primed by Fusion GPS, are doing the same thing in the MSM circuit .And, in time. the information was being spread in the political and intelligence circles in much the same manner. Now you have the makings of a perfect CCI sh*t storm.

      Russian intel sussed what was going on pretty quick. It was easy to deduce since they knew they were not the source of the D.C. rumors about Trump. But what an opportunity. The word was passed and certain “people” who knew they were for a fact under electronic surveillance started making vague remarks in their electronic communications. NSA picks it up, and confirmation bias kicks in. Unsolicited information makes its way to Steele. Wonder where that came from? Still wonder what the FBI and Intel community want kept out of the Democrat HPSCI memo. Not so much that there is raw intel defamatory to Trump. But that the Russian intel punked at least part of the U.S. intel community. Unfortunately it was a majority of the intel community. Why a majority. Ferrofluids and magnetic fields.

      The problem for the FBI is that they have access to the raw NSA reporting. The problem for the NSA is that the FBI has access to the raw NSA reporting. We have heard the “You can’t handle the truth” quotes in the treehouse lately. Here is one the NSA wishes the FBI had paid attention to – “You can’t handle the lies!” Remember Admiral Rogers demurs about the DNI report on “Russian meddling” while the others have “high confidence” in the report. The NSA knows how easy it is to turn a successful access operation against you into a successful disinformation operation that works for you. That is why Gen M. Hayden was internally fought tooth and nail over allowing outside access to raw data when the intel community was realigned under the DNI. He was warned. He did not listen. The Russians detected the salted fields of disinformation on Trump, chummed the waters, and the likes of Farkas, Schiff, Warner, Pelosi, et al. were in on the feeding frenzy.

      Lots of talk in the treehouse about buying corn futures (popcorn). Personally, I have been buying futures in Corvus narcissus.

    If I were a senior FOX News executive, I’d have a daily 30 min. PM segment devoted to this topic, to include major figures in the MSM. Call it something like “Said & Saying, Before & After”. The last half of the hour would focus exclusively on the MSM and be the “Here’s what they didn’t tell you” segment, focusing on key news they’ve blacklisted and refused to report on.

    Then again, for this to work right, Fox would have to fire Sheppard Smith.
