NBC Report on Cohen Wiretaps Confirms Prior Information – Mueller Investigation Took Over FBI Counterintelligence Operation…

A report by NBC that Michael Cohen’s phones and email accounts are being “wiretapped” and under surveillance by Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation unit has gained attention today.  However, there should be no real surprise in the reporting.

When the special counsel was initiated and authorized by Rod Rosenstein, there was a transfer of investigative authority from the FBI to Robert Mueller.  This is the underpinning of the “Insurance Policy”, as originally begun via the original FISA surveillance warrant granted in October of 2016.  The only thing that changed was who was conducting the investigation.

The appointment of the Special Counsel merely transferred the ongoing investigation from inside the FBI counterintelligence unit (Page, Strzok, Ohr, Priestap, etc.) to Robert Mueller (Aaron Zelby, Andrew Weissman, etc.).  The ongoing SC (Mueller) investigation is identical in every way, sans the name changed for the participants.  The current Mueller investigation is the same one initiated by the FBI in 2016; that is what is hidden in the redactions of instructions by Rod Rosenstein. (See pdf below):

.

For some reason people thought the surveillance of the Trump campaign, began under the auspices of an FBI counterintelligence investigation -that began in July 2016, and gained retroactive legal authority in October 2016- ended.  It didn’t.

The appointment of the Special Counsel was then (’17), and is now (’18), all part of the continued surveillance of President Trump and all of the officials associated with the Trump administration.  This was the “small group” plan all along in the event that Donald Trump was to win the election.

Today’s report of the wiretapping of Michael Cohen is nothing more than a discovery of the existence of the ongoing “insurance policy”; started in 2016 as an operation to conduct political surveillance of a campaign; continuing in 2018 as an operation to conduct political surveillance of an administration.

The original 2016 FBI Counterintelligence Operation against Trump never ended.  It still goes on today.  The only thing that changed was the entities conducting the investigation.

The FBI “small group” handed-off their work to Robert Mueller’s team, and the exact same operation continues today.  This is what Peter Strzok previously described as the “insurance policy”.

The “insurance policy” was gaining legal authority via the FISA Court in 2016, to conduct a counterintelligence operation against Donald Trump.  That investigation, the insurance policy, has never ended.   Hence:

(Via NBC) Federal investigators have wiretapped the phone lines of Michael Cohen, the longtime personal lawyer for President Donald Trump who is under investigation for a payment he made to an adult film star who alleged she had an affair with Trump, according to two people with knowledge of the legal proceedings involving Cohen.

It is not clear how long the wiretap has been authorized, but NBC News has learned it was in place in the weeks leading up to the raids on Cohen’s offices, hotel room, and home in early April, according to one person with direct knowledge.

At least one phone call between a phone line associated with Cohen and the White House was intercepted, the person said.

Previously, federal prosecutors in New York have said in court filings that they have conducted covert searches on multiple e-mail accounts maintained by Cohen.  (read more)

Just seems like the strategy of dotting I’s and crossing T’s, if that’s in fact the strategy, always ran the risk of bad timing. i.e. bad guys advance while good guys plan to plan. It was always a risk. You’d think a coup, once it was recognized as such, would need to be swiftly put down or else we’d find ourselves pretty much where we are now.

It’s so close to ‘wiretapping’ the difference is insignificant, they can still get the recordings of the calls.

        What I like about the “Q” stuff is we get to trust a plan that hasn’t even been articulated.

        What plan? Let’s hear it so we can determine for ourselves it is viable.

        I keep hearing what Sessions is doing. He can’t do anything about the Russia thing. He’s recused. As long as Russia is being investigated, and that was why Caputo was dragged in more than once–DNC, Wikileaks, the hack–Mueller will continue, and there is nothing Sessions can do about it. Sessions lets Rosenstein, a WITNESS to the Comey firing, run the investigation. Since when does a witness run an investigation? Sessions knows better than that, but here we are.

        Nobody really knows what Huber is doing except reviewing Horowitz’s work. That’s what we were told openly he is doing, anything else that is added to it is made up stuff, or wishful thinking . If Huber is really investigating something, under a grand jury, fine, but we don’t know, and we can’t prove that. No one needs to prove that Huber is NOT doing more than just reviewing Horowitz’s work. People who say Huber IS doing more have the burden of proof and the same goes for Sessions.

            Do you even know what “Q” clearance is? It’s a Dept of Energy Clearance
            Q Sensitive allow access to Special Nuclear Material (SNM) category 1. An employee with a Q sensitive clearance could have access to nuclear weapons design, manufacture, or use data; disclosure could cause exceptionally grave damage to the nation.

            Q Nonsensitive allow access to Special Nuclear Material (SNM) category 2. The higher the SNM category, the more readily the material could be converted to a nuclear explosive device. Categories 1 and 2 require special protection, such as armed guards.

              Dear Lady –

              I have long been aware of what a “Q” classification means and entails. Yet – it is good you put it out there for others to know. But . . .

              Do you know why “Q” posts?

              Can you really decipher what is being said?

              Whether or not Q is “leaking” is beyond your scope – sensitive is not quite the same as “classified” – so what you mean to say is unclear. To date, Q has not released anything that is classified, but rather, as does Sundance every day, points us in certain directions as to events, or critical dates.

              Contrary to our rather vocal newbie here said down aways, I have yet to advocate a single narrative, save to say that we need patience, and to pay attention to those in the know, such as SD and yes, Q, since many rail on or about the site, but no one has yet refuted its info. Since none of us knows what we don’t yet know, demanding our will be done nonetheless, is a bit of a fruitless effort.

              The predictions are uncanny. And before anyone pulls out the joker that pretends to be an ace – “conspiracy theory” – let me remind all that that phrase’s origins are from within the CIA, as regular folks began to question their narratives back in the ’60’s.

The rank and file of DoJ and FBI are filled with Obama appointees and Clintonistas who are #resisters. They all hate Trump. Mueller will try and get Trump to resign by threatening to indict Ivanka or Jared for some made up process crime. Resign or we take down your family. BigUgly!

    Fortunately, Trump has the backing of the US military and general law enforcement, and the support of millions of Americans. The big military parade scheduled for DC this summer, might be the perfect day to have the US Marshall’s to begin delivering arrest warrants for the Obama and Clinton cabal, starting with Robert Mueller.

    Never tried crow cooked in any fashion, and do not aim to start doing so over this. I have counseled patience here a number of times. I have quoted Sundance’s own words for patience; I have put up a few quotes from Q – the parallels are quite astounding. Then again, not really so astounding, if one is really paying atteniton and not reacting to headlines.

    “Never interrupt your enemy when he is making a mistake.”

    Whether Bonaparte really said that or not, it is very much part of warfare at whatever level. Nine gazillion suggestions on every posting about what Donald “should” do, or this person or that, or who’s the rat, etc., etc., etc., should serve to amplify our lack of full knowledge.

    Despite the opinions of many, matters are in the ablest of hands. Donald is taking down the DS on the international front – trade agreements – especially with the ChiComs – that gave him much leverage; the Saudis; ISIS (read Armenia into that picture); The “BOOM” in Syria last week, and the missiles on the deep state sites even before – all of which were clear signals to the mullahs in Iran they are nect on his list. Donald as much as said so. Little Kimmy is acting like he, himself, has been released from captivity. I wonder why that is? Tons to know in that direction!

    Hmmmm . . .

    The IG has the entire DS in a full dither. They (DS) know full well who has turned, and who is about to do so. Sundance is to be commended highly for taking the time to explain that, and way before anyone but Q knew what was happening. Both have counseled patience. I repeat Sundance’s words from another posting today:

    “The OIG review of the DOJ and FBI conduct has taken a long time; and with good reason. The scale of the misconduct is staggering.”

    He followed that with a number of videos to show us just how much so!

    And contrary to the contention of many, Jeff Beau used his recusal to get all the other bad actors identified and set up, through John Huber. Donald is the main thrust of the battle – internationally, and as our President. Huber and Horowitz have his flanks. Q is right that the DS keeps falling for Donald’s moves, as he said “every single time” – and SD is showing us just how.

    So – I am well-stocked with popcorn, my fave brews, and some fine-assed Texas rib-eyes. I am simply enjoying the show. I remember the days of my past when I ranted and raved, but had zero hope. But now – I am watching how “winning is done” – with hope being fulfilled day-by-day.

    I like it – a lot! My suggestions are not better, nor are those of any commenter. Some get my point. But the bottom line is this – no matter what you think or feel at whatever level of rage . . .

    It will not happen your way nor mine, but in the way of the man we placed there to actually make it happen. So . . .

    Patience, friends.

        If I am wrong about what? I have consistently pressed for “patience” instead of the off-the-wall” “we gotta do/Trump has gotta do/fire Sessions nonsense that shows up in 4–5-600 comments to every post? You cannot lose being by what I advocate.

        I could care less about my “eating crow” comment.” It is a caution not to do or say what one knows nothing about. That is somehow “counter-productive?”

        Look, Dude, I didn’t just recently put up an nothing site on WP just so I could comment here. I have have been here a good, long while, and I didn’t come walking in like I was in charge of the joint or the comments. You did, and your Mr. Free-Thinker Schtick is a bit tiresome. You are far more like the town gossip – stirring up matters about which you are clueless as well.

        Speak concretely to something/anything – instead of trying to pretend be big man on campus. “You just wanna say” a lot that has little content or merit.

        Take your own advice.

    An important point for those frustrated by the lack of action. If you look at the big picture here, the country is going through a seismic shift back towards the founding principles. Moving forward, transparency will reign supreme. You don’t dismantle a century of corruption in one year. What we are seeing now are the remnants of a fundamentally flawed and corrupt institution clawing at the walls as they are exposed to the light.

    Government agencies that the founders did not know would exist had, over decades, overtaken constitutionally enacted oversight. The pendulum has now begun to swing to the other side. A return to the rule of law, to constitutional oversight, transparency. The public will demand it. There is no stopping the train now. It is going to take time to get up to speed, but we are witnessing a sea change in american politics. Trumps election may very well be the best thing that has happened to this country in the past 70 years.

    I don’t know about you guys, but I tend to think things happen for a reason. While we are upset with the fraudulent Clinton investigation, and subsequent sham investigation of the president, we have to look at the bigger picture. The corrupt Clinton investigation which led to her exoneration for clear criminal violations is what set President Trump up to win. Hillary was the perfect opponent for President Trump. Without her, he may not have become President. She was the most corrupt and least likeable presidential candidate of my lifetime.

    With that being said, keep in mind that the most important thing Trumps election has done is to expose. We won’t forget what we’ve seen. Things are different now.

      i disagree Ben, but a great post…

      i believe EVERYTHING we’re seeing is enclosed in the globalist psychopath swamp mind control scripted narrative – it’s a closed loop now…the Truman Show – thanks in great part to the internet, dopey social media, and centuries of INDOCTRINATION that has led American taxpayer citizens to this point of absolute hypnosis.
      The PRIMARY indoctrination that Americans of EVERY partisan flavor have received since birth from their family, friends and ESPECIALLY their education, is that they actually have CHOICE, AND that they KNOW what is going on. This breeds extremely PRIDEFUL people who consider themselves an important part of the process – any suggestion to the contrary is met with indignation and “cognitive dissonance” (google it ;O)

      The main thing that most are completely unaware of is that the “SWAMP” has been crafting and engineering our “reality” since 1776 and before, and their agendas and narratives OFTEN last for decades and much longer….

    A minor but significant point about the Swarmy Daniels scenario is that the fact the woman remains alive is significant evidence that there is no Russian collusion and Trump is not Russia’s agent ……because the Russian mob or some other Russian operative would have killed Swarmy Daniels *immediately* when she first came forward trying to extort money or blackmail or embarrass Trump …..the Russians would have *immediately* silenced her forever. There would have been no “warning” by a stranger in a parking lot…..there would have been a visit by the coroner to autopsy Swarmy Daniels because she would be very dead if Russians were involved as “friends” of Trump, because the Russians would protect their investment leaving no loose ends about that.

    “For some reason people thought the surveillance of the Trump campaign, began under the auspices of an FBI counterintelligence investigation -that began in July 2016”

    This is the one thing I believe Sundance has wrong. The date: July 2016. The same date that for some reason the FBI were desperate for Nunes to include in his memo.

    There is fair evidence that surveillance of the Trump campaign became well before July 2016.

    – First we have Admiral Rogers trying to get contractor access to the NSA database shut down in early 2016. This means FISA abuse was detected before this point.

    – Then we have Nellie Ohr beginning work for Fusion GPS in April 2016. She’s there to receive information from Bruce Ohr still doing 702 searches from within DOJ to get around Rogers’ contractor access ban.

    – Then we have indications that surveillance was already in place at Trump Tower prior to Natalia Veselnitskaya’s failed meeting on 9 June 2016. How else would they have known about the handshake with Ivanka?

    I believe that July 2016 is offered as the start date because this is when they start shopping around for an FISA warrant to retrospectively justify previous spying. Under FISA rules, spying can occur for up to 12 months before a warrant is applied for. My best guess is the spying began as soon as Trump won the nomination.

    I certainly hope there is such a “plan” in place but at some point we’re going to have to come to terms with what’s really taking place.

    There are also “Think Tanks’ That are in on the game as well.
    The Now defunct PNAC which came out of the Brookings Institute and others.

    Is anyone even aware of just how and what DJT has done and is doing really?
    Do you know just how He and He alone put an end to they’re ever getting their WW3?
    How many parrots does it take to sing a song that says nothing.
    Do you even know how the Trade reps are actually dissolving that agenda that was coming?
    What country were clowns setting up to incorporate Geneva, Rome and London as the world capitol. Have you forgotten the players that started the mess around the world.
    Have you ever heard of “ASTANA”? And the man that was being trumpeted as world leader?

    And, Before you wake-up one day and find yourself completely NEO-CONNED.
    Maybe you should READ something that gives you a deeper understanding of just why.
    Your feeling privy to particulars that keep you distracted from what is actually happening in this world. And, Then maybe just maybe You’ll understand your PRESIDENT that much better.
    Cause you will not be concentrating on the small swamp of D.C. but on the world Swamp.
    And actually be in step with your PRESIDENT.
