Devin Nunes Submits Questions To Obama Officials About Clinton-Steele Dossier…

Anyone else notice how, post letter to FISC Judge Collyer, Chairman Bob Goodlatte is running silent, yet deep?  ‘One-Ping Only‘…. we digress.

You might remember from a recent interview with HPSCI Chairman Devin Nunes how the Chairman was appreciative of State Department Jonathan Winer’s op-ed in the Washington Post regarding his role in promoting the Clinton-Steele Dossier… Well, today Chairman Nunes follows that trail and submits a letter to several members of the Obama administration inquiring as to their participation and knowledge.

The chairman has sent a series of questions about the sketchy Clinton-Steele dossier on Donald Trump to a number of current and former government officials.  Unfortunately, the committee letter does not specify to whom Nunes sent the questions, however according to Byron York there are more than 20 recipients.

No doubt former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, former CIA Director John Brennan and former FBI Director James Comey are at least three of the recipients. Those three would be of particular interest due to their prior collaboration on the sketchy intelligence community Joint Analysis Report.

Readers will likely remember from our initial research how we strongly suspected the FISA Title-1 application was likely an aggregate assembly of two specific sets of documents. Set #1 the Clinton-Steele Dossier; and set #2 the underlying documents behind the intelligence community Joint Analysis Report (JAR).

For over six months we have suspected the FISA application was almost entirely based on those two sets of dubious, weak and generally unsubstantiated data.  This prior hunch has gained more validity as the details behind who the ‘small group’ consisted of has grown.

The Obama political intelligence apparatus (DOJ, FBI, ODNI, CIA and DoS) are all fundamentally wrapped up in the political objectives behind the Clinton-Steele dossier and all the uses therein.   The outlier was the NSA and Director Admiral Mike Rogers; again, more evidence of why the internal intelligence apparatus were demanding Director Rogers be fired from the administration.

Again, I repeat for emphasis.  The way to deconstruct the ‘Trump Operation’ is to focus on the underlying cornerstone, ‘the dossier’.   We have continued to point toward this approach as the most direct path to get the underlying scheme exposed and subsequently take down all the corrupt officials.   This approach also appears to be the course of investigative action by Nunes, Goodlatte and Grassley.

The Clinton-Steele Dossier is now exposed as the foundational document behind a fraudulent FISA surveillance warrant.  As such Phase-two includes exposing everyone who is associated with the assembly, use, promotion and distribution of the Clinton-Steele Dossier.

Final Thought:  Notice how the approved Title-1 warrant was issued on October 21st, 2016 with three re-authorizations of 90-days each:

  • October 21st,2016 through mid January 2017 (original authorization)
  • Mid January through mid/end April (re-authorization 1)
  • Mid/End April through end July (re-authorization 2)
  • July through October ’17 (re-authorization 3)

Notice it was immediately following re-Authorization #3 (July 2017) when OIG investigative notices began showing participants within the ‘small group’, beginning with FBI Agent Peter Strzok and FBI Lawyer Lisa Page.

In the original reporting (Dec ’17) Strzok and Page were removed in July/August 2017 as a result of notification from Inspector General Michael Horowitz.  This is the same time-frame when DNI Dan Coats and AG Jeff Sessions announced a special DOJ-FBI task force that media ignored.   It was August 2017 when Rod Rosenstein confirmed the task force was in place.

None of this appears coincidental.  All of this activity is connected.

    Background: Wordfence does security for WordPress sites.

    I haven’t believed a single word from Obama, Brennan, Clapper, Comey, or anyone else pushing the “Russia did it!” narrative since reading the following Wordfence blog posts a few weeks after the election.

    “At Wordfence our focus is WordPress security. Our security analysts spend a lot of time analyzing PHP malware, because WordPress is powered by PHP.

    “As an interesting side-project, we performed analysis on the PHP malware sample and the IP addresses that the US government has provided as “…technical details regarding the tools and infrastructure used by Russian civilian and military intelligence services (RIS)”. [Source]

    “We used the PHP malware indicator of compromise (IOC) that DHS provided to analyze the attack data that we aggregate to try to find the full malware sample. We discovered that attackers use it to try to infect WordPress websites. We found it in the attacks that we block. Here it is.”

    Continuing –

    “This is the kind of web shell that we see all the time in our day-to-day forensic operations. It includes the following basic features:

    File browser/explorer
    File search function
    A database client to download the contents of a hacked site database
    Network tools including a port scanner and the ability to bind a service to a port
    A tool to brute force attack passwords on FTP and POP3 services.
    A command line client to run arbitrary operating system commands
    A utility to view server configuration info

    “By viewing the source code, we could find the name of the malware and the version. It is P.A.S. 3.1.0.

    “We googled it and found a website that makes this malware. You can find the site at this address:

    And –

    “The PHP malware sample they” – DHS and DNI – “have provided appears to be P.A.S. version 3.1.0 which is commonly available and the website that claims to have authored it says they are Ukrainian. It is also several versions behind the most current version of P.A.S which is 4.1.1b. One might reasonably expect Russian intelligence operatives to develop their own tools or at least use current malicious tools from outside sources.”

    Finally –

    “Overall Conclusion

    “The IP addresses that DHS provided may have been used for an attack by a state actor like Russia. But they don’t appear to provide any association with Russia. They are probably used by a wide range of other malicious actors, especially the 15% of IP addresses that are Tor exit nodes.

    “The malware sample is old, widely used and appears to be Ukrainian. It has no apparent relationship with Russian intelligence and it would be an indicator of compromise for any website.”

    I left out a lot up there, but anyone who has a passing interest in elementary malware forensics and the politics of the laughable GRIZZLY STEPPE report may find a few bits here:

      WordUnimpress was OBVIOUSLY censoring at the beginning of 2015.
      Links to Chem Engineer, John Kehr’s website on global warming would cause the entire comment to be booted into the ether, not moderation. So would the word T*R*OT*SKY


  6. AKM says:

    Then-President Obama initiated sanctions against Russia on Dec 29 2016, 2 weeks before the JAR report. Did he do that based solely on the Clinton-Steele Dossier? If he and or any of his cabinet members knew that the Dossier was political dirt, is it a crime to apply sanctions to another country, especially one with a nuclear arsenal, based on lies?

    Question 9 is key here. The first rule of ambulance chasing is “Never ask a question you don’t already know the answer to.” Obviously, Mr Nunes already knows the answer. He also knows what happened in that Jan ,5th meeting beyond Rice’s e-mail to self.

    These 20 or so people are given a chance: tell the truth or go to jail. Process crimes work both ways.

    This is getting good. The Census and redistricting depend on this dragging out a little longer.


  8. Isman says:

    As usual, I’m late to the discussion. Does anyone here know who the targets were of the continued Title 1 warrants? I had thought Trump was able to move into new a transition headquarters to evade the address specific monitoring of Trump Tower. Does this mean that until July 2017 everyone Carter Page had touched could be spied on by the FBI, including the White House and virtually everyone working there?


    • G. Combs says:

      It was the Three Hop Rule that was the killer. Anyone Carter Page came in contact with during the LAST FIVE YEARS could be spied on AND anyone those people came in contact with. — HUGE BOMBSHELL in Carter Page Warrant: The Three Hop Rule from The_Donald

      This would be most of the Republican party if Page KNEW about it ahead of time and there is a good likelihood Page was CIA on loan to the FBI. UCE-1 (FBI Undercover Employee – 1) was outed as CARTER PAGE (written statement to the House, page 16)


      “(f) “Electronic surveillance” means—-

      (4) the installation or use of an electronic, mechanical,or other surveillance device in the United States for monitoring[…]”
      Note that Carter Page gave binders containing “covertly placed recording devices” to the Russian, Buryakov, to get the conviction of the three russians in U.S.A vs. Evgeny Buryakov, Igor Sporyshev, and Victor Podobnyy – On April 3, 2017.

      Here is more that points to Carter Page being a ‘CIA goat’ sent to entrap President Trump

      May 23, 2017
      “[…]Trump fired Comey earlier this month, just over nine months into the FBI’s probe of Russia’s hacking and disinformation campaigns that targeted Democrats during the election. That probe began in earnest when Robert Hannigan, then the chief of Britain’s Government Communications Headquarters, passed Brennan material related to conversations Trump associates had with suspected or known Russian agents in late 2015 and early 2016,….

      Brennan was so concerned about the intercepted communications that he established a counterintelligence task force, which included the FBI and the National Security Agency. (Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper testified earlier this month that those communications had been picked up and handed over to US agencies, but he could not elaborate due to the “sensitive” nature of the intelligence.)

      Apr. 13, 2017
      “[…]Brennan reportedly established a counterintelligence task force, which included the FBI and the National Security Agency. That summer, Robert Hannigan, then the chief of the GCHQ, passed Brennan more material related to conversations Trump associates had with suspected or known Russian agents,[…]”

      CIA then set up task-force in 2016 to investigate possible Russian funding of Trump’s campaign

      Seems like Carter Page was a Judas, either knowingly or unknowingly. I suspect the former.


  9. Little Annie’s Fannie says:

    Question—Chm. Nunes sent out the letters. Did Vice-Chair Schiff have knowledge or can we expect his letters next week?


  10. FerdinandAkin says:

    I predict Nunes will be batting 1000.

    If you take twenty people who each take the fifth on ten questions, you get 1000.
    20 X 5 X 10 = 1000

    (Do the Democrats have lawyers that charge $1000 and hour?)


  11. Jim says:

    “I cannot answer that question Congressman because that is an on going investigation by the FBI”, Christopher Wray, FBI Director


  12. Mike Gino says:

    Why is nothing being reported about the relationship between Dutch lawyer Van der Swann and Russian Billionaire German Khan, who is suing Fusion GPS in London for libel based on claims that Khan colluded with President Trump? Van der Swann is married to Khan’s daughter. What is Mueller’s motivation in indicting someone on the fringe of his investigatory authority? I smell a rat named Weissmann.


    • Maquis says:

      The.motivation is, after picking the low hanging fruit of two indictments of folks already long under investigation and one Trump Administration Official set-up by the FBI, now Mueller sets his sights on indictmenrs that will never bear fruit.

      Those 13 Russians will never be prosecuted, never depised, will never face a CNN ambush interview. They are ideal subjects for accusing to beef up his investigation’s appearance of successful fact-finding without ever having to prove it, or risk having it disproven.

      It’s like the school bully deflecting responsibility by blaming another, but rather than accusing a current and accessible classmate, he names a military brat that moved overseas two years prior.
