House Intel Committee Releases Final Report on Active Russia Measures…

Earlier today the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI) released their final report on Russia Active Measures (full pdf below). House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes issued the following statement today:

“The Intelligence Community has finished its declassification review of the House Intelligence Committee’s Russia investigation final report. Given the substantial public interest at stake, the Committee is publishing the redacted version we’ve received. However, we object to the excessive and unjustified number of redactions, many of which do not relate to classified information. The Committee will convey our objections to the appropriate agencies and looks forward to publishing a less redacted version in the near future.”  (LINK)

There are some initially revealing aspects to the release including: revelations that DNI James Clapper was a leaker to CNN about the Steele Dossier content and Presidential Briefing [SEE HERE]; and that Former Dianne Feinstein staff raised $50 million after the election to continue funding Fusion-GPS and Christopher Steele [SEE HERE]  Likely much of that money was used to pay journalists and continue the Muh Russia narrative.

The revelation about James Clapper leaking to CNN doesn’t come as a surprise because we actually noted the strong likelihood on the day of the report [January 10th, 2017 – see here], and then again after much of the suspicions were confirmed [HERE].

However, the revelations of Senator Dianne Feinstein participating in the overall post-election scheme to deploy the insurance policy [SEE HERE] do answer a nagging question that always seemed to lay quietly below the surface.

During 2016 Senator Feinstein was part of the Gang of Eight by way of her position as vice-chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee.  It always seemed odd that Feinstein gave up that position immediately following the 2016 presidential election.

There was something about Feinstein’s abdication that appeared to be a move to diminish risk.  With the discovery that her top staff was actually involved in close coordination with Fusion-GPS, Christopher Steele and the advancement of the Russian conspiracy/collusion narrative, Feinstein’s move to create distance after the election makes sense.

Here’s the HPSCI Report:

I have not had time to fully review and digest the report.  Please feel free to provide your review and insight below for further research.

    I would like to see a list of those “CONtributors”. I’ll bet Soros is at the top along with Suckerberg, Dorsey, and whatever idiot runs google.

    Would Feinstein fundraising be subject to FEC rules? Guess it would depend on whether her staff was truthful with the donors. If they were, the donors are in on the insurance policy and may be at some legal risk. If they claimed it was for future Senate races then FEC applies. I’d like to see the list of donors. Wonder if it would match the list of attendees to Sea Island during the campaign? Or which Hollywood elites? Madonna? Rosie O? Anyone on The View?

    There was a lengthy legalese paper put out to justify the firing of McCabe, but I don’t remember such a paper on Comey’s firing, do you?

      Rosenstein wrote a letter for Trump recommending he fire Comey. Don’t know if that is what you are referring to and I don’t remember if the letter was ever made public.

        Rosenstein and another person wrote letters. But nobody these days mention the REAL reason he fired Comey; Comey told POTUS 4 times he was NOT under investigation, but Comey would NOT tell the public that. The public was wanting to crucify POTUS, and Comey played into their hand by NOT saying truth!

      With Comey there was a dissatisfaction with his performance overall…with McCabe there was dereliction of duty with possible criminal intent….

      Comey served “at the pleasure” of the President, who became “displeased”….

      Pretty cut & dry for the difference in the two at the time of the actions against each.

    Follow the money. Investigate where the 50 million went. They have probably laundered and pocketed some.

    That 50 mil is payout as insurance policy to impeached PDJT. Gilded monkeys handed the 50 mil to a bunch of half monkeys…deplorables are smart as hell and save this country from Hillary.

    Bastards is right. THEY SAID THE AMERICAN PEOPLE HAD A RIGHT TO KNOW, and then they blatantly hide THE TRUTH from us. The slow and painful truth we’ve already paid for, whether we wanted to or not.

    OK, I’ve read a lot of this thing now. The most ridiculous chapter is the “Campaigns” one. Page after page of explorations into Trump campaign doings, and almost nothing on the Clinton campaign. Then the part that irks me is the chiding of PDJT et. al. for tweeting about Wikileaks, for example, all the while omitting almost entirely the Clinton campaign interactions with these “Kremlin-linked” Russians in generating the Steele dossier.

    So while it exonerates the Trump campaign for Russian collusion, and points out the stupidity of not briefing Trump on these potential Russian-linked infiltrators (Manafort, Page, Gates, etc.), it is reflective of the intense bias of the investigation in the first place.

    Minor points, you can “unmask” a lot of the names that are redacted, since they’ve conveniently listed them alphabetically, and left the lengths of the names intact. Deliberate? I wonder. Some names: Sidney Blumenthal, Carter Page, Joseph Misfud, Daniel Jones, one of the Ohr’s (I guess Nellie) Natalia Veselnitskaya, and etc. You can also tell who has been left out of consideration (i.e. Oleg Deripaska or Ivanka Trump). Not to mention they did a poor job of carrying the name redactions through the document. Anyway. That was really irritating to read.

      Robbie Mook (Clinton campaign director) is another redacted name, and Mark Elias (Clinton lawyer) is probably the redacted E name. No Seb. Gorka, which is kinda surprising since they were hot and heavy after him for a while.

    Correction (in a previous comment) – Pg 58 … should read
    **Pg 48 “The first meeting with (redacted) occurred approximately one week prior to candidate Trump publicly naming Papadopoulos as a foreign policy advlsor.”
    This one seems important.
    [redacted] = Donald Trump Jr? The redaction ends with “Jr” in Footnote 53 Pg 57 “Post Opinions Staff, “A transcrlpt of Donald Trump’s meeting with The Washington Post editorial board ,” Washington Post Mar.21, 2016. (will research this)
    —————————————————————
    Pg 99 “The leaks related to Russian intentions to sow discord in the U.S. presidential election took place prior to the November 8, 2016 election, and notably, after the IC’s establishment of the fusion cell”

    Pg 100 “At the time of these leaks, the information contained within them was still classified…These leaks happened during the early stages of the IC’s ongoing assessment of Russian active measures”

    Pg 101 “Finding #41: Leaks of classified information alleging Russian intentions to help
    elect candidate Trump increased dramatically after the election day-November 8, 2016…had not acknowledged any attempt by Moscow to influence the election in favor of candidate Trump…four days later on December 9…The Washington Post reported that the CIA concluded a new assessment that Russia intervened in the 2016 U.S. presidential election to help candidate Trump win the presidency, rather than for the sole purpose of undermining confidence in the U.S. electoral system.”

    Pg 104 “former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper admitted that he confirmed the existence of the dossier to the media”
    This entire page lists leak timing, subject of leaks, and intent.

    Pg 107 Source of dossier leaks to CN&N was Clapper, who changed his story to the Cmte.
    —>>>iow, Clapper leaked and lied

    Pg 110 Footnote 47 “HPSCI, Executive Session Interview of James Clapper, July 17, 2017. Former CIA Director Brennan testified publicly that the dossier was “not In any way used as a basis for the lntelligence Community Assessment.” HPSCI, Russian Active Measures During the 2016 Election Campaign, May 23, 2017.
    —>>>However, NSA Director Rogers clarified that, in late December 2016, a two-page summary of the Steele dossier was “added” as an “Appendix to the ICA draft,” and that his consideration of the Appendix was “part of the overall ICA review/approval Process.”

    Pgs 112-113 Footnotes 3, 4, & 5 are revealing sources for State Dept. and Steele Dossier.

    —>>>Pg 114 Chap 7 Conclusions Recommendation #1 re: media are disturbing. They seem to be suggesting ways and methods to shut down independent media, such as bloggers. smh

    Pg 115 Recommendation #2 re: teaching ways to recognize propoganda. Ibid.

    These recommendations reflect the mentality of a life in government, with no real-world experience.
    Every recommendation requires more government, be it government takeovers (ex. voting infrastructure), to education, to more money and people.

    They also reflect utter hipocrisy. Clapper is named as a leaker and a liar, followed by recommendations for more punishment of leakers and liars. Except for the Swamp Creatures, of course.
    —————————————————————
    This entire HPSCI Report reflects the mentality of people who have spent the entirety of their lives in gubmint. No imagination, no insight, no deviation from the legalese. Although, oh joy, not one “therein.” Must have worked hard at that.

    Some say these people are evil. Perhaps some few are. Occum’s Razor says Hanlon’s Razor applies.
    These people are just stupid. Very, very, stupid.
    And so it goes.
    On to the appendixes (sigh).

    Who writes/reads this stuff? Worse than a user manual.

      Thanks for your hard work. I’ve not read one word but I believe most of this is the writing of the staff with some editorializing from the top committee members. Dimms are thinking we got away with a lot & some good press. Repubs are “let’s continue onward”… And then there’s AG Sessions AND all his praise for RR.

      It is so hard to have patience because there are a few good conservative websites like CHT that have exposed so much more than even Congress can release. Redactions are totally annoying because we are entitled to know what various agencies are doing with our tax monies and when they are politicized. And if agencies are shielding employees engaged in sedition, money laundering, improper handling of classified material, unauthorized access to raw intelligence data, calling on the UK to surveil American subjects because the US cannot legally do the same, lying to FISA courts, illegally unmasking Americans, etc., well, something significant has happened to our government, our rule of law, especially when some are indicted for “lies” and others are not and running around free. If the FBI/DOJ had held Hillary to the same standards as Gen. Patraeus and the submariner who spent a yr. in jail for taking pictures of himself on the sub to send home, then we would know justice applies to all Americans, no matter their status, no matter how small the breach.

      That’s how very important these investigations are, even if they’re SO SLOW to get to the grand jury, etc. or maybe just get it to a very angry pit bull.

      Sundance: For the life of me, I can’t understand how Sessions is SO supportive of RR, so reluctant at THIS stage of the game to step in and bring Mueller under control and/or shut down his investigation, and/or shut down Comey & indict him. You are much wiser & patient but I need to see more progress.

        Well said, thank you, could not have said it better.
        Btw, as far as UK etc spying on Americans, look up the Cloud Act that was passed with the last Cromnibus. Congress just legalized Five Eyes spying on Americans. imo
