Tying All The Loose Threads Together – DOJ, FBI, DoS, White House: “Operation Latitude”…

There are so many threads of information surrounding the 2016 operation to conduct political surveillance on the Trump campaign by various officials and offices within corrupt structures of government it’s easy to get lost.  However, if we take all the various bits of information and placing them together a more clear picture emerges.

The {Go Deep Threads} look like this: The FISA-702(17) ‘About Queries’; the political opposition research of Fusion-GPS and Glenn Simpson; the DOJ officials and FBI officials; Bruce and Nellie Ohr; the U.S. State Department and U.N Ambassador Samantha Power; the Clinton-Steele Dossier and Christopher Steele; the FISA Title-1 surveillance warrant; and the unmasking by former Senior White House officials: Lisa Monaco and Susan Rice.

Here’s the basic overview of how all those threads come together to paint a picture.

The FBI group was participating in a plan to exonerate Hillary Clinton. That same FBI group was simultaneously conducting opposition research on candidate Donald Trump and the larger construct of his campaign team. Those FBI officials were allied by entities outside official government structures. The ‘outside group’ were “contractors”. It is likely one of the contractors was Fusion-GPS or entities in contact with Fusion-GPS. {Go Deep}

The contractors were using FBI intelligence databases to conduct opposition research “searches” on Trump campaign officials. This is where the use of FISA-702(16)(17) “To/From” and “About” queries comes in. {Go Deep}  This FISA abuse was the allowed but unofficial process identified in early 2016 by NSA internal auditors.

This is where NSA Director Admiral Mike Rogers steps in on April 18th, 2016, and stops the FBI contractors from having any further access. {Go Deep}

{Go Deep on NSA Rogers}

No longer having access to the FBI intelligence database the group needed a workaround. That’s where DOJ official Bruce Ohr and his wife Nellie Ohr come into play. {Go Deep}

The DOJ side of the operation was conducted within the National Security Division (John P Carlin head). {Go Deep} The DOJ-NSD could use the NSA/FBI database and pass information to, and receive information from, Nellie Ohr. Nellie was hired by Fusion-GPS immediately after Admiral Rogers shut down the FBI ‘contractor’ use of the system. Nellie would be the go-between.

The problem was that any information from within the FISA searches could not be directly used by the FBI because they would likely have to explain how they gained it and all search queries were illegal. This is where Fusion-GPS hires the retired British MI6 officer Christopher Steele.  The FBI needed to launder the intelligence product:

Chris Steele would be the laundry for the intelligence information pulled from the U.S. system. Unauthorized FISA-702(16)(17) results were passed on to Christopher Steele, likely by Nellie Ohr. Steele would then wash the intelligence product, repackage it into what became known as his “Dossier”, and pass it back to the FBI ‘small group’ as evidence for use in their counterintelligence operation which began in July 2016 [ intentionally without congressional oversight {Go Deep}].

Evidence of this laundry process is found in a significant “search query” result that was actually a mistake. The faulty intelligence mistake was the travel history of Michael Cohen, a long-time Trump lawyer. The FISA search turned up a Michael Cohen traveling to Prague. It was the wrong Michael Cohen. However, that mistaken result was passed on to Chris Steele and it made its way into the dossier. Absent of a FISA search, there’s no other way Christopher Steele could identify a random “Michael Cohen” traveling to Prague.

The Cohen mistake created a trail from Chris Steele to the FISA database.  {Go Deep}

All of the unauthorized FISA-702 search queries, “To From”(16) and/or “About”(17), of the NSA/FBI database were returning results. Those results were “raw intelligence”.

That raw intelligence needed “unmasking”, that’s where the Department of State (DoS) comes in. The U.N. Ambassador is part of the DoS. Samantha Power stated she wasn’t doing the daily “unmasking” identified by the House Intelligence Committee investigation {Go Deep}. Someone, or a group of people, within the State Department, were doing unmasking requests – presumably using Ms. Power’s authority.

The collaborative process by officials within the State Department, as outlined and supported by Senator Chuck Grassley and his investigation, explains why those officials were also communicating with Christopher Steele. {Go Deep}

The assembled but highly compartmentalized reports from the DOJ-NSD, FBI-Counterintelligence, Department of State, Office of National Intelligence (Clapper) and CIA (Brennan), was then constructed to become part of President Obama’s Daily Intelligence Briefing. That’s where National Security Adviser Susan Rice comes in and her frequent unmasking of the assembled intelligence product. {Go Deep}

The Obama PDB was then redistributed internally to more than three dozen administration officials who POTUS Obama allowed to access his PDB.  This includes the heads of DOJ, DOJ-NSD, FBI, FBI-counterintel, CIA, DoS, ODNI, NSA and Pentagon.

The distribution of the PDB was how each disparate member of the administration, the larger intelligence apparatus, knew of the ongoing big picture without having to assemble together for direct discussion therein. That’s Lisa Monaco and “Operation Latitude”:

.

Additionally, remember this from the FBI?

January 31st, 2018, […] “With regard to the House Intelligence Committee’s memorandum, the FBI was provided a limited opportunity to review this memo the day before the committee voted to release it. As expressed during our initial review, we have grave concerns about material omissions of fact that fundamentally impact the memo’s accuracy.”

FBI Asst. Director Michael Kortan (aka text message “Mike”), the head of the FBI Public Affairs Office was the one who wrote it.  Kortan was part of the scheme team.  FBI Director Christopher Wray fired him the following week.  {Go Deep}

So now you know.

I’ll stop there, but hopefully that part helped…. a little, maybe.

Oh, Hi Adam!

    April 3, 2017: Multiple news reports state that Obama National Security Adviser Susan Rice had requested and reviewed “unmasked” intelligence on Trump associates whose information was “incidentally” collected by intel agencies.

    April 4, 2017: Obama former National Security Adviser Rice admits, in an interview, that she asked to reveal names of U.S. citizens previously masked in intel reports. She says her motivations were not political. When asked if she leaked names, Rice states, “I leaked nothing to nobody.”

        The hilarious part (for me at least) in this interview was her
        talking about how well read up Obama was for all the briefings.

        Knowing how he spent every available hour either on vacation
        or at the golf course, I have some big time doubts that he actually
        did his “homework”, and on a consistent basis. The only time I can
        see Obama actually doing heavy duty work is when he’s scheming
        for his enemy’s destruction. “His enemy” being Us, naturally.

      Great job by Sundance, along with his relentless coverage of Coward County.

      Speaking of which, do yourself a favor and see howtobeyourowndetective.com

      Today’s post “Coward County Deputies Let Shooter Kill Kids; Worst Schoolkid Murder Was an Inside Job” is a classic.

      The author dissects the Coward County handling of Cruz, the fake outrage against President Trump and the NRA, the money greed of his trust handler that outed the potential triggerfing moment for Cruz, the potential sexual abuse by Sheriff Israel of a high school girl, and potentially the refusal to enter the building was on orders from the top down.

      He also noted the worst schoolkid killer of all time in America was a school board treasurer in Michigan who blew up the school during school hours. He didn’t need a magazine with a rifle. Soon some Moslem will try tor run a truck thru school kids.

      The author noted teachers molest 10s of thousands of kids each year, so they need to be sifted like wheat.

  3. Electra says:

    While it seems certain that info gleaned from unmaskings were selectively fed to Fusion GPS in order to support the Clinton narrative, could it be possible that the Michael Cohen story came from somewhere else? Perhaps Steele got one of his old cronies at MI5 to run the query. It’s also conceivable that a Russian with Kremlin intel resources came up with it and then fed it to Steele. It’s easy to believe that either of these two possible sources could have made the same blunder that we have credited the Obama Small Group with.

    If we accept that the Cohen story came from the Small Group, then we also need to accept that they didn’t just buy into the Steele document, but that they actually conceived of and initiated a conspiracy to fabricate evidence against Donald Trump. It does, therefore, make a big difference who came up with the Michael Cohen fairytale.

          Reading through what she did ( or didn’t do) while in
          Africa brings back an eerie sense of this.

          Where have I heard this story before?

          Recently, it would be with Sheriff Israel, Superintendent
          Buncie. Prior to that, it might include McAuliffe during
          Charlottesville, and the college shootings nearby shortly
          before that. Wind it back a few years, and we have Jamie
          Gorelick, and her firewall between departments. Oh, and
          we have Benghazi survivors signing non disclosure forms.
          Not to mention Brennan firing a torpedo against investigations
          of muslim based terrorists.

          What’s the common thread, down wind. Atrocities are comitted,
          people are killed. Persons are displaced. Displaced persons are
          sent to areas where they are completely and utterly overwhelming
          to existing cultures, norms, personal safety. Which is what was
          intended. Just needed a cover story.

          What else has occurred? Needs are created. NSA/ The Patriot
          Act would not have existed without 9/11. 9/11 might not have
          occurred if the different departments had been able to block it
          through shared intel. Interestingly, same departments have this
          ruling essentially reversed right before a less user friendly
          administration comes online. Back to needs. Jamie Gorelick’s
          actions enabled the creation of the NSA/Patriot Act. She was made
          fabulously wealthy a few years later by allowing the Fannie Mae/
          Freddie Mac debacle to occur. Along with Franklin Raines.

          All of these individuals ( and more that we don’t know about)
          wind up insanely wealthy after the dust settles. What’s Susan Rice
          worth these days? Think she’d be worth a little less if she’d done
          things different in Africa? Wonder if Israel and Buncie are waiting
          for the pay off to come their way? Oh. Left two big ones. Comey, and
          David Brock. Both had the information on the Clintons early on,
          and both completely reversed what they implicitly knew not long
          afterwards. Both are also worth many millions, now. There’s a
          growth industry these days in creating cover stories.

          I learned that the NSA is required to provide semiannual reports to Congress on the counts of FISA queries, unmasking, etc. as part of Patriot Act governance, which seem to occur in the April and October timeframe. It is possible that someone put the total count together and said “it’s this big, this can’t be right, someone verify that number”. Sometimes the simplest questions can lead to a deep dive.

        • I am presuming that “became aware of” means someone on his staff brought it to his attention.

          “Sometime in early 2016 Admiral Rogers became aware of “ongoing” and “intentional” violations of Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), Section 702 surveillance. Specifically item #17 which includes the unauthorized upstream data collection of U.S. individuals within NSA surveillance.

          Section 702 – Item #17 “About Queries” is specifically the collection of emails, and phone call surveillance of U.S. persons.

          The public doesn’t discover this issue, and NSA Director Rogers action, until May 2017 when we learn that Rogers told the FISA court he became aware of unlawful surveillance and collection of U.S. persons. Put into context, with the full back-story, it appears that 2016 surveillance was the political surveillance now in the headlines; the stuff Chairman Nunes is currently questioning.”

      They are going slowly, often silently for periods (no leaks), and systematically. That also happens to push any political impact closer to the midterms, so it isn’t “old news” then. There will be fact-based criminal cases, not general BS such as we saw in yesterday’s Schiff memo release.

Instead of framing Trump, they created a trail that is being used to identify and convict a LOT of criminals in our government.

        The key to winning is what is being done at this moment. Good candidates deciding to run, money being raised, assembling volunteers to run a ground game … etc. etc. By the time that primaries roll around it is already getting too late.

        Lately, the GOP has been getting slaughtered by an huge gap in enthusiam and turnout. The other side is red hot, while ours is comparatively complacent …. and in a lot of cases, demoralized and cynical. Good conservatives … who are not trolls … are sick that nothing tangible on the prosecutorial side has been done, while the other side is getting indictments and not letting up. The window is not a November one, but something much earlier for winning enough seats to avoid a debacle.

              Reply to Victor Laslo – I agree with what you are saying. The Republicans are not supporting President Trump. For a minute, put aside all this Russia FISA Warrant stuff; The one way to get Trump is impeachment by the House. The UniParty wants this to happen (impeachment will be on Trump’s record forever and dog anyone following in his footsteps of attacking the establishment). The Senate will most likely not vote to impeach. However, Trump loses in 2020, and for the Republicans that are defeated in this scenario it all plays back to the UniParty manifesto of “we are in sometimes, and when we are out we get those cushy jobs sponsored by our billionaire benefactors” (and this applies to both sides of the aisle). Trump probably realizes this and is hoping that he can pull out another miracle victory of just being on the ballot in 2020.

The later rush to include the Brits was an afterthought, when worries about Trump victory upped the risk of the lawbreaking being uncovered and some legitimacy was trying to be established.

    From Sundance’s opening paragraph:
    “… it’s easy to get lost.”

    The entire point is to get lost! I’m afraid the best white hats are or will be complicit in diluting everything, trading political chips for true justice, and compromising on virtue. In the end, it will be too easy to convince themselves that that is best for the American People, and protecting or restoring the citizenry’s confidence in America’s government institutions is more important than anything else. It’s all baloney, but this is what allows them to move forward in good conscience.

    The GOP is using the same playbook: Parade out a champion that’s finally gonna get some real justice…. rah, rah, rah….charge. Nonsense! Every day that passes increases the likelihood that no high level government official will face serious consequences. Hands have already been slapped in closed door sessions – that’s it. You may get a few more low level casualties, but I doubt any justice will ever be brought to bare for the most serious crimes that can be committed within our government. Those crimes are real.

    All of the serious charges are known and have been known for some time. Committees, memos, press conferences, and especially the media are now constantly in play to distract, dilute, numb, and evaporate the terribleness of crimes committed.

    Hope I’m wrong, but I strive everyday to be immune to confirmation bias. This community has devolved into confirmation bias and it’s counterproductive.

    Unfortunately, this is all talk until someone, just someone, high on the Swamp organization chart is indicted. Only one, as a start and a signal to those of us deeply hoping that the RULE OF LAW is going to be reinstated.

    I understand the concept of “patience”. I have a lot of it. But the longer this goes on without a meaningful indictment, the more the Swamp can legitimately claim it’s all “conspiracy theory”.

    And the closer this “reveal” gets to the mid terms the less chance we have of keeping the House and Senate.

    And all the patience in the world will not help much when the House begins impeachment proceedings and smothers all these investigations with more lies about our President. Bye, bye any meaningful legislation on the Trump agenda once that soap opera begins.

      Spot on.

      The pity is that we have our own bunch of lo-infos. And many of them are just as obstinate with their opinions to the detriment of objective facts.

      To wit; if you disagree with a stated opinion, then rebut with facts that support your opinion. Instead we get juvenile invectives. For example, Sessions is a favorite hobby horse of these MAGA Worriers. The constant “why doesn’t he act now”. No matter how often one explains due process and the meaning of innocent until proven guilty.

      Another favorite, “Trump has lost my vote cause he caved on amnesty”. Really? These jaded anklebiters have their own cognitive dissonance issues; gloating when Trump out maneuvers the establishment to pass a tax law then panicking and damning him on another issue. These faithless worriers are toxic to MAGA.

      Since it’s Sunday, I’m digressing just a bit about “damning”. People need to be careful about just casually damning this or that. “Karma” encapsulates the adage about being careful what you wish for. Scripturally, it is be careful what you damn. The commandment to not take God’s name in vain is not a verbot against saying it, but saying it when you don’t mean it.

      If Trump is MAGA-ing even just 50% of your concept of America First, then why on earth are you casually damning him on the rest? Think what would happen if your idle words came true? You can expect an instant rollback on the 50% you already have in your hand.

      We’re told that faith the size of a mustard seed can move mountains is another reason to rein in one’s tongue. A prophet damned some kids making fun of his bald head resulted in a bear killing the kids. Jesus cursed a fig tree for not being fruitful and the tree shriveled up. Even if one discounts the Bible, I simply point back to the non biblical word, karma. Be careful, tame the emotions and focus on objectivity.

What you say is based on a belief that Gowdy, Sessions and Rosenstein are white hats but if what we believe is true then this has been going on with these people for more than ten years and congress and the named parties all knew about it but still deceive us about Mueller and his investigation.
        Bills radio interview with Sydney Powell and observer article demonstrate that Mueller cannot possibly be on the right side or turned and proceeding with his indictments.

I dont think Mueller would be continuing full steam if he knew Trump was winning the battle, or that Gowdy Sessions and Rosenstein would keep telling us that Mueller is not a crooked coup plotter after we see what he is doing and all the connections to other black hats in the past admins.

          The only thing I can say is due process hasn’t finished playing out yet. Sessions will not act until OIG is completed so we just have to hang in there.

        Nah, I’m a human living in the real world and have the thousand yard stare. Only a miltary coup will fix this tower of babel. “Innocent until proven guilty”? Everyone knows they’re guilty and there’s plenty of evidence. “Caved on amnesty”? Yes, this above all was why we voted for PT. Where do you think the taxes go in the first place? Their is no time left to be content with 50%. The ship of state is way more than 50% off the cliff. Have faith? Equating PT with Jesus shows you are a true believer, and don’t live in the real world. I say bring in the marines, shut it all down and start over.

          I dont equate trump with Jesus but I do think the system is so badly damaged that perhaps even a short term of martial law and purges might be the only way… because under the system I have no doubt that even were these corrupt cabals to be indicted that others are being installed at the grass roots by soros as DA’s with a long term plan…. Trump is a temporary respite, a stall to their steamroller.

          Vic, the military has been providing additional security for the president for quite a while now adding an extra layer of protection. That journalist van driver who was detained trying to enter Mar-A-Lago last week with a loaded handgun was exposed by them (and the NSA.) When the right time comes the Army will be involved in gathering up all the traitors. As to when that might be, the 4th of July would seem to be most appropriate.

          Ok, so where’s the leadership that will take you this way? Without one, you haven’t a chance in winning. Trump’s position is to follow due process thru to completion and has repeatedly stated it in so many ways. Trump is attempting to bring back the rule of law in every aspect of governance. We owe him that much to support him and see it thru. If he fails, then all bets are off the table. We’ve yet to see the whites of their eyes yet. Trump is not simply going for prosecution, but for the kill. To annihilate, not decimate the deep state.

    Steele, Fusion GPS, DOJ/FBI, etc. did more than “launder” the “about queried” intelligence data. Mifsud was told on April 26th that the Russians had dirt on Hillary – this was 8 days after Rogers stepped in and stopped the illegal contractor access/spying. The about queries certainly showed that Papadopoulis was talking with the Maltese professor. (It’s the best link to Russia and Trump that they had as of April 18th).

    Where did the information passed to Mifsud about ‘Russians with dirt on Hillary’ originate?

    The blackhats weren’t “getting information” from sub-sub Russian sources; they were telling their sub-sub Russian sources what to say and who to tell it to. Blackhats passed “dirt on Hillary” to Mifsud, they setup the meeting between Veselnitskaya and Trump Team. They took Page’s trip to Moscow and added fake meetings, and circulated this information through foreign governments, the press, McCain, and the FBI in order to create the appearance of corroboration.

    Papadopoulis, Page, and the Trump Team meeting with Veselnitskaya were ALL set-ups.

      You can bet your britches the ‘surveillance’ was earlier than any FISA warrants and included invasive personal surveillance, not just business and political targets.

      Otherwise, PDJT would not have tweeted this:

      The President has been baiting, trolling, giving the enemy enough line and time…..to thoroughly incriminate themselves.

      The prosecutions of the evil doers will be a glorious event in US history.

      Simply glorious!

      Trump is trollin’, trollin’
      Keepin’ Dem-dogs rollin’
      Showin’ up their pollin’
      The narrative he’s controllin’

      Raw hides!

      He keeps the Dem-dogs movin’
      Though they’re disapprovin’
      Trump is really groovin’
      And what he tweets gets proven.

      Raw hides!

      He won’t try to understand ‘em
      He’ll throw, rope and brand ’em.
      Herd ’em up in tandem.
      Then their a$$es hand ‘em!

      Raw hides!

      Though they’re calculating
      Trump is far out-rating
      With his gal Melania by his side
      Baiting, waiting, watching while they slide
      Soon he’ll expose them far and wide!

      Raw hides!

      Move ’em on, head ’em up
      Head ’em up, move ’em on
      Move ’em on – show ’em up!

      Rawhides!

      Cut ’em out, ride ’em in
      Ride ’em in, get ’em out
      Vote ’em out – he will win!

    Just before logging on I heard a teaser on TV for an upcoming political program in which one panelist is saying that we should stop poking into the unsavory doings of the DOJ/FBI because it is hurting morale in the rank and file. In my opinion low morale is the appropriate response to all this unethical behavior on the part of their leaders, and the only way to restore morale is a thorough house cleaning.

    Representative Ratcliffe was on Sunday Morning Futures with Maria Bartiromo where he said IG report is expected to be out in about a month. Ratcliffe expects IG report to reveal significant departures of policy and protocol by FBI and DOJ. How about crimes??? Schiff’s memo argued that FBI agents were “unfairly maligned” in Nunes memo to which Catherine Herridge responded with ~ FBI didn’t think so because they were reassigned and demoted. Demotion and reassignment will not be enough for me. I want perp walks.

      Unfortunately, demotions and reassignments for some and early retirement with full benefits for others might be the only corrective action.

      Systematic departures from protocol, folks, i.e., everybody is doing it… we will make sure it will never happen again, promise, we already issued new Guidelines, we work hard to restore public trust in the FBI, we cannot discuss classified information publicly, we cannot confirm or deny the existence of any investigations, just trust our word that we are doing the right thing this time, no reasonable prosecutor…

    I posted a link to this column the other day, I want to highlight the last paragraph because it fits here:
    “Our own Deep State has rapidly become an entity as sinister as the old Soviet Nomenklatura. It is interesting and dismaying to see so many public intellectuals swallow its self-serving claims when it was not so many years ago that a healthy and natural skepticism about government lying was the order of the day, especially when it came to the dark towers of US Intel.”
    This man is no Republican, no conservative, and certainly no Trump supporter.
