Curious Note – Robert Mueller Interviewed NSA Mike Rogers Immediately Prior To Rosenstein Renewing Third FISA Extension…

Throughout 2015, and until April 28th, 2016, there were unknown “outside government” contractors with access to the FBI/NSA database. Those outside government agents were conducting unlawful searches of the FISA database. The 99-page FISA Court opinion by presiding justice Rosemary Collyer proves this with absolute certainty. CTH has long suspected those outside agents were doing political opposition research; and were allowed to do so as part of the political misuse of the intelligence apparatus.

Pg 83. “FBI gave raw Section 702–acquired information to a private entity that was not a federal agency and whose personnel were not sufficiently supervised by a federal agency for compliance minimization procedures.”

(2017 FISA Court Opinion – 99 Page Brief)

With the revelation of Daniel Richman, a close friend of James Comey, being an “special access employee” of the FBI, hired by Comey, CTH anticipates Richman will be discovered as one of those previously described “outside government” unpaid contractors with access to the FISA database. The new information of Richman, along with what we know of Fusion-GPS, is an example of the hidden connective tissue between the Lawfare group (outside government) and the “small group” of DOJ and FBI officials inside government.

NSA Director Admiral Mike Rogers ordered a FISA-702 audit, and shut down the contractor access to FISA-702(16)(17) [“to/from”(16), “about”(17)] systems on April 28th, 2016.  Those contractors -together with their inside allies- doing oppo-research, moved to make the unofficial use of the database, official.

Toward this end, Fusion GPS (an FBI contractor) hired Nellie Ohr (wife of DOJ Deputy Bruce Ohr) in May 2016. And by July 2016 the collective group of insiders and outsiders had assembled enough sketchy data-points/information to frame the outline needed for an official investigation. This is the origin of the July 2016 FBI Counterintelligence operation.

The left-wing alliance doing the work (insiders and outsiders contributing) was successful in morphing opposition research into an official FBI counterintelligence operation; that began at the same time as the GOP convention in July 2016. This is the broad-stroke outline, demonstrably provable through exhaustive research.

A year later, sometime in late June of 2017, a month after the appointment of Robert Mueller, the special counsel met with Director of National Intelligence, Dan Coats, and NSA Director Admiral Mike Rogers. The New York Times cited the meeting in an article posted on June 14th of 2017.

Mr. Mueller wants to question Dan Coats, the director of national intelligence; Adm. Michael S. Rogers, the head of the National Security Agency; and Richard Ledgett, the former N.S.A. deputy director. (LINK)

Remember, DNI Dan Coats and NSA Mike Rogers were working together in March and April of 2017.  It was thanks to Dan Coats we have access to the critical declassified FISA report (Rosemary Collyer) in April of 2017.  Coats declassified the content, albeit with redactions – it is from this release of information that much is learned in 2017.

Depending on who was questioning; and considering that these are apex intelligence members who would be interviewed by only senior members of the special counsel, likely Robert Mueller himself; and considering Robert Mueller was one of the key architects of the FISA court (post 9-11); there is almost NO WAY Dan Coats and Mike Rogers would not inform Mueller of the DOJ and FBI FISA issues and the political corruption therein.

This conversation between Coats, Rogers and Mueller, is likely around the end of June, or beginning of July, 2017…..  Now, consider and overlay:

One of the most frequent questions about Asst. Attorney General Rod Rosenstein circles around his decision to reauthorize the FISA Title-1 surveillance warrant used against Carter Page and by extension the Trump campaign. In this outline we take the timeline and overlay new information that helps to understand what was going on:

  • Why did Rosenstein renew that sketchy FISA warrant July 18th, 2017?
  • Why did Mueller request clarity two weeks later on August 2nd, 2017?

To understand the dynamic we must remind ourselves what was known at key dates in the investigative decision-making. None of this is intended to exhibit an opinion toward the motives of those making decisions; however, in hindsight we can clearly outline what was known and what was not known at the time these decisions were made.

Recently we have gained clarity toward the scope of investigative evidence held by Robert Mueller. Thanks to some debriefing interviews by ‘witness’ Michael Caputo we more thoroughly understand what evidence is held by Robert Mueller; and, more importantly the scale of that evidence leads to a reasonable conclusion about how it was obtained.

It appears Special Counsel Robert Mueller began his investigation of Russian interference and the possibility of Trump campaign collusion, right where the FBI counterintelligence operation left-off. This is additionally supported by reviewing the original investigative instructions as outlined by Rod Rosenstein the day Robert Mueller was appointed as Special Counsel:

The key phrase here is: “to serve as Special Counsel to oversee the previously-confirmed FBI investigation of Russian government efforts to influence the 2016 presidential election”… Here, Rosenstein is clearly instructing Robert Mueller to pick-up the former Counterintelligence Investigation previously headed by FBI Asst. Director of Counterintelligence Bill Priestap, and his #2 FBI Agent Peter Strzok.

The date of this appointment is May 17th, 2017. Approximately a week after President Trump fired James Comey on May 9th.


So there we have the three areas of direct authority: ¹Links or coordination between the Russian Government and the campaign of Donald Trump. ²Matters that may arise from the investigation of the Russian government and the campaign of Donald Trump. And ³other matters within the scope of 28 C.F.R. § 600.4(a). [<- ie. ‘Jurisdiction‘]

So there’s the instructions to Robert Mueller and his team on May 17th, 2017.

As an outcome of this May 2017 reassignment of investigative authority, Mueller now takes over from Bill Priestap. The Special Counsel takes over the investigation from the FBI.

The lead FBI investigator, Peter Strzok, is in immediate communication with Robert Mueller’s point person Aaron Zelby via email; and FBI agent Peter Strzok eventually finds himself part of the Special Counsel investigative team.

It is important to remember, at the time all of this is taking place, no-one inside the DOJ Inspector General’s office (DOJ-OIG) or the Internal Investigation Division (INSD) of the FBI is aware of the evidence that FBI Agent Peter Strzok and DOJ assigned Special Counsel Lisa Page have been part of a group shaping a months long “insurance policy” against the candidacy and presidency of Donald Trump. Nor is anyone aware that Andrew McCabe, Michael Kortan, Lisa Page and Peter Strzok are leaking frequently to their media allies. Those discoveries come later.

In May 2017 Robert Mueller and Rod Rosenstein would not know the history of what activity was happening inside the FBI “small group” scheme; however they would likely know of the FISA abuse in 2016 as outlined by NSA Director Mike Rogers.

It was ten months before the Special Counsel was assigned when Page and Strzok were messaging each-other about the “insurance policy” discussed in Andrew McCabe’s office. The Page/Strzok messages were on August 18th, 2016.

That “insurance policy” is widely believed to have been short-hand to describe an effort to conduct surveillance on candidate Trump, which could later ensure a strategic plan to disrupt and possibly eliminate Trump if elected, via the Russia collusion narrative.

That plan needed legal FBI authority to conduct surveillance – which could be used to weaponize intelligence. That plan culminated in the Carter Page Title-1 FISA warrant as the deployment mechanism, on October 21st, 2016.

Apparently, without knowledge of the underlying sketchy context inside the application (Steele Dossier) of the FISA Title-1 surveillance warrant, on July 18th, 2017, Asst. AG Rod Rosenstein renews the FISA warrant as the 3rd continuance of an investigative tool. This time to be used by Robert Mueller. And with this intensely broad and intrusive surveillance authority Mueller’s investigative unit now has the legal authority to capture the records of everyone within two-hops of Carter Page. That includes the entire Trump campaign and likely almost all of the Trump administration.

This explains why Michael Caputo said: “Mueller has everything, on every person related to the campaign.” Including calls, emails, text messages, the works.

However, between the start of the Mueller special counsel (May) and the date of the FISA renewal (July 18), OIG and INSD investigators began to discover issues as a result of an internal leak investigation. [OIG Report on McCabe] Questions to FBI Communication Director Mike Kortan, Andrew McCabe, and his lawyer Lisa Page resulted in contradictions within their statements.

  • •May 2017 McCabe denies leaking for WSJ story (to FBI).
  • •July 2017 McCabe denies again (to IG Horowitz).
  • •July 20th, 2017 Horowitz gets Strzok/Page text messages. Proving McCabe constructed the WSJ story and lied to FBI investigators and Inspector General.

Immediately after Rosenstein reauthorizes the FISA warrant (7/18/17), Lisa Page turns over text messages to support her version of events. OIG and INSD investigators get the Page/Strzok messages on July 20th, 2017:

[Congressional Report – Page 18, Item #3, second paragraph] “The DOJ OIG obtained the initial batch of text messages on July 20, 2017.”

Now things get interesting.

As a result of those messages delivered July 20, soon thereafter the IG informs Robert Mueller there are big issues with Lisa Page and Peter Strzok who were/are both on the special counsel team. Obviously INSD and OIG investigators are pouring through the messages.

As a result of that IG notification Robert Mueller removes Peter Strzok. It is reported that Lisa Page left a few weeks before. In “Appendix C” we discover the final text from Lisa Page to Strzok took place on June 25th, 2017: “Don’t ever text me again“. This final message follows Strzok’s heavily redacted text message June 22nd about not being able to reach out. So we can assume, with reasonable accuracy, Lisa Page was a non-factor in the Robert Mueller investigation around late June and Peter Strzok is removed sometime shortly after Mueller gets the details about their compromise late July/beginning August.

It is likely Rod Rosenstein is informed of the same issue(s) soon after he reauthorized the FISA warrant, July 18th. Prior to that initial IG notification; and prior to OIG and FBI Inspection Division review of the scale of the issue; no-one outside the “small group” knew about the scheme, or the “insurance policy”.

However, at the beginning of August 2017 both Rosenstein and Mueller now have some idea something is seriously wrong within the prior corrupt FBI investigation that was using the FISA Title-1 surveillance warrant Rosenstein just renewed two weeks earlier.

So what happened next?

Well look at the date of this “newest special counsel instruction“:

(full pdf available here)

In hindsight it is now clear why Robert Mueller would be reaching out to Rod Rosenstein and telling the Asst. Attorney General that, against the revelations of what the prior FBI investigative unit was doing; and with Mueller having interviewed Admiral Mike Rogers earlier; Rosenstein better provide Mueller increased clarity as to the specifics of what he is authorized to review.

By the very end of July, 2017, the released investigative evidence is clear – both Rod Rosenstein and Robert Mueller become aware of the initial issues with Page and Strzok, and likely how those issues were quickly escalating as the IG and INSD discover through reviews of evidence and in-person interviews the outline of a broad conspiracy.

It’s no surprise that Mueller takes pause and requests clear instructions in writing; but we still don’t know what’s behind that massive redaction.

SUMMARY: An honest review of the timeline shows the third FISA renewal happened right before Rosenstein and Mueller became aware of the first signs of the corruption. Additionally, a clear hindsight review of the content within the application, vis-a-vis the fraudulent use of the Clinton-Steele dossier, shows a clear reason why it was never reauthorized again; and easily why Carter Page was never charged with anything.

Once the IG and INSD investigators had the time to go deeper into the internal investigation, this is around the point when Utah federal prosecutor John Huber is brought into the findings surfacing within the IG and INSD investigation. Huber’s task likely to review all of the discoveries for potentially criminal conduct, grand jury evidence and possible criminal indictments if warranted.

However, all of that said, none of this explains why Asst. AG Rosenstein did not shut down the special counsel investigation in/around Sept. or October 2017 as soon as the scale of internal corruption was known. Unless the extraneous Flynn, Papadopolous and Manafort findings, some of which likely stemmed from the use of the FISA extensions in the period from May through October, became the agenda for continuance.

Here’s where everyone wants to know motive(s) behind Mueller, Rosenstein and the corresponding investigators. Truthfully, this is also where an argument can be made in both directions.

So, you decide for yourself.

    On April 26, 2017 Judge Rosemary Collyer issued the 99 page memorandum opinion.
    Perhaps NSA Director Rodgers was communicating issues and concerns with Mueller about the orders ( 1-10 ), listed at the end of the report.

    from the above report- p99;

    10) The Government shall promptly submit a report in writing concerning each instance in which FBI personnel receive and review section 702-aquired information that the FBI identifies as concerning a United States person in response to a query that is not defined as designed to extract foreign intelligence information. The report should contain a detailed description of the information at issue and the manner in which it has been or will be used for analytical, investigative or evidentiary purposes. It shall also identify the query terms used to elicit the information and provide the FBI’s basis for concluding that the query was consistent with applicable minimum procedures.

        Utah Republican Sen. Orrin Hatch told reporters Thursday he is concerned by the extent of surveillance President Barack Obama’s administration conducted on President Donald Trump’s presidential campaign and transition team.
        “I was just a little shocked by it,” said the senator, who is also the President Pro Tempore of the Senate and fourth in the line of succession behind Speaker Paul Ryan (R.-Wis.).

        The senator was speaking in the context of news reports that Attorney General Jeff Session, a close adviser to the Trump campaign, met with the Russian ambassador twice during the 2016 election cycle and the New York Times report that Obama administration officials ran an intense information campaign against Trump and his team in the months before the New York City developer entered the White House.

        This was also two weeks after the release in the media of transcripts from Obama’s Justice Department wiretaps of retired Army Lt.Gen. Michael Flynn forced his resignation as National Security Adviser.

        Hatch said he was not completely surprised by Obama’s use of official apparatus to track political opponents.

        “I suspected that they were going to do that anyways,” he said.

        The senator also said that he suspects information gathered by the Obama administration’s surveillance of the Trump camp made its way to Obama’s anointed heir Hillary Clinton and her presidential campaign.

        “Yeah, I got a lot of suspicions, but I have no idea, so I am not going to speculate.”

              January 23, 2018 (bold mine)


              The attorney general, Jeff Sessions, has been interviewed by Robert Mueller, as part of his investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election, a justice department spokeswoman said on Tuesday.

              Sarah Isgur Flores confirmed to the Guardian that the meeting took place. The New York Times first reported the meeting on Tuesday morning.

              It was also reported on Tuesday that the special counsel is seeking to interview Donald Trump in relation to the president’s decision to fire former national security adviser Michael Flynn and former FBI director James Comey.

              The Washington Post reported that Trump’s lawyers are negotiating the terms of an interview with the special counsel, with the president’s legal team preferring that he answer some questions in person and others in a written statement.

              John Dowd, an attorney for Trump, declined to comment.

              Mueller’s reported focus on the firings of Flynn and Comey is the latest indication that the special counsel’s team is zeroing in on potential obstruction of justice issues.

              Earlier this month, Mueller reportedly called back a key witness in the infamous June 2016 meeting at Trump Tower between senior campaign officials and a Russian lawyer connected to the Kremlin. Trump’s elder son, Donald Trump Jr, accepted the meeting after being offered damaging information about Hillary Clinton and informed of an effort by Moscow to aid his father’s campaign.

              Comey was also reportedly interviewed by the special counsel’s office.

              That interview reportedly took place last year and pertained to a series of memos Comey wrote, while he was FBI director, about his conversations with Trump about the Russia investigation. Trump fired Comey in May 2017, raising concerns that he tried to obstruct the FBI investigation into his campaign’s contacts with Russians.

      This has all been orchestrated, to the ‘t’. Mueller’s involvement is necessary to distance the President from the storm that is about to hit Hillary and company. If these people and their crimes were brought to light before a solid case could be made it could all be made to look to be nothing but political. Sessions is being painted as a weak sister for a reason. He is suppose to be giving the impression of sympathetic character towards the public. Mueller and his dream team of dems will uncover an investigation that supports what Huber and Horowitz are going to drop. It’s a three pronged approach to go after these perpetrators while still leaving the President as an insulated entity. It’s rather smart.

      But I wonder what kind of people Comey/Richman and Strzok/Page, who were supposed to be protecting our country on taxpayer funds, really are when they spent so much work time with their boyfriends/girlfriend on personal issues and scheming against the country/Constitution they were sworn to protect.
      Seems to me the DOJ and FBI leadership people need much more direct supervision by American patriots. Seems like too much time and money and a lack of integrity and supervision. I wonder if the taxpayers got 10 cents on the dollar in return from official work for paying their salaries.

    Q just put up a post that leads with

    Why are select EO’s aggressively being written and put into law?

    Re_read DOJ org change (open source – more in pipe)

    I am probably anal retentive, but look at this EO Trump signed on February 9th, 2017 entitled, “Providing an Order of Succession Within the Department of Justice” available at:

    The two operating clauses are:
    Section 1. Order of Succession. Subject to the provisions of section 2 of this order, the following officers, in the order listed, shall act as and perform the functions and duties of the office of Attorney General during any period in which the Attorney General, the Deputy Attorney General, the Associate Attorney General, and any officers designated by the Attorney General pursuant to 28 U.S.C. 508 to act as Attorney General, have died, resigned, or otherwise become unable to perform the functions and duties of the office of Attorney General, until such time as at least one of the officers mentioned above is able to perform the functions and duties of that office:

    (a) United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia;
    (b) United States Attorney for the Northern District of Illinois; and
    (c) United States Attorney for the Western District of Missouri.

    Sec. 2. Exceptions. (a) No individual who is serving in an office listed in section 1 of this order in an acting capacity, by virtue of so serving, shall act as Attorney General pursuant to this order.

    Am I reading this correctly? If Sessions is unable perform his duties it appears that pursuant to Sec 2. no Washington based Deputy or Assistant AG can become AG; AG control is move to Virginia, Illinois, or Missouri.

    If I am right this appears to me to be Trump's own "insurance policy" against the deep state wresting back control of the Justice Dept in the event of Sessions becoming incapacitated. If I was in Trump's shoes I would have Plan A, B C D E in place. It only makes sense, so much at stake. I hope Huber is working out of Virgina.

    I am not an attorney and it probably shows….Correct me where I am wrong.

      One complication is 28 USC 508, which I believe allows the A.G. to specify an order of succession, not conflicting with the one given here, by regulation. In former times I’m almost certain that after the D.A.G. came the Solicitor General, but I don’t have time to check the regs, which may of course have been changed. If Sessions and Rosenstein both left (say Rosenstein is fired and Sessions resigns in protest), it’s not obvious to me who then would act as A.G., but probably the U.S. Attorney for the EDV. We might see Dana Boente back in.

      As for Huber, he is probably working “out” of D.C., but I don’t believe that changes his appointment status: he is still U.S. Attorney for Utah and would not become the next A.G.

Please look into this indictment filed last week: Six family members were indicted for extorting more than $4 million in “cash, gold bars, and gold coins” from unnamed victims between November 2016 and April 2017. The crazy part is that the charges were referred by DOJ Inspector General Horowitz! This implies that the victims are connected to the Department of Justice. What secret connected to DOJ is big enough to pay $4 million in extortion? Is it a coincidence that the extortion began after the 2016 election and ceased about the same time James Comey was fired? And why isn’t the media covering this case? Is IG Horowitz squeezing the suspects to get them to reveal their blackmail material? And is this part of the new evidence that has delayed the OIG report on the Clinton investigation? Of course it might all just be a coincidence…but I doubt it.

Even though the Strzok/Page emails are not yet available, it seems to me that Rosenstein had plenty of reason to investigate and review the FISA authorization before signing off on it.
    He didn’t want to find abuse. After the emails became known, he could no longer plausibly claim ignorance.

    Mueller and Rosenstein behavior and actions/inactions within and prior to this obvious conspiracy plainly points to Black Hat all the way. They are elitist creeps of the worse ilk.

    The good news: Trump pulls from a lifetime of dealing with and ultimately dominating chumps like these two. He’s holding back and letting both and the rats they employ ultimately drown.

  10. Manafort did not flip and neither Flynn or Gates could have given them anything incriminating or Mueller/Rosey would have run down to Congress with it. No video, audio, or electronic communication, no first hand eye witnesses implicating Trump. Trump has not fired anyone. IG report out soon. Huber low profile. Nunes after sessions. Difficult to see the next moves. If sessions is a white hat, he could be waiting for Flynn and Manafort cases to get dropped and thrown out. The media falls into a deep depression for a few days. Then he takes off the shackles and Huber fires back with a mccabe indictment and several plea deals. BOOM! Then it gets serious. Mueller wraps up and files a harmless report. Huber goes medieval on dozens of a$$es and the MSM realized they were bamboozled. Epic!

      The Judge even said Manafort had no contact of any kind with Russians!

      Anyone who doesn’t see by now that Sessions is doing a great job is suffering from Sessions Derangement and needs to do some research into everything going on at the DOJ/FBI then perhaps read The Art of War. Check out then read Praying Medic’s twitter and listen to his You Tube. Q posts for the 4th, 7th and 8th try to briefly bring normies up to speed enough so they stop making themselves and everyone around them sick with worry.

      Does the DOJ really make “plea deals?” I personally have never known of that happening before.

    There were a couple of comments referring to Andy McCarthy in the vast hinterlands below. A couple of links here provide specificity of content and timing:

    So maybe another reason for the Aug 2nd Rosenstein additional inclusion of the unredacted Manafort criminal allegations was provided in order to attempt to remedy the 5/17/17 originating documents shortcomings as publicly identified by McCarthy?

    The SC authority should have never gone beyond the Trump/Russia theory which has been debunked and incriminates DNC Clinton parties. When Sessions recused himself did he know that it would go beyond that or No? That’s the question we’re all waiting on and waiting on and waiting on. Meanwhile our great POTUS is out working his tail off to MAGA! NK, Iran, and china are being magatized! Same for EU, and our pardners on our borders!

    I understand how we all HATE this investigation with a passion and all of us wish it to go away ASAP, BUT please think about this for a moment.

    The “witch hunt” has already been proven capable of draining major portions of Deep State Swamp real estate.

    How many people have been fired/resigned due to this investigation? It’s a long list.

    Without the investigation/witch hunt, would that be politically possible?

    It’s easy to say “just fire them all!” but there must be a good reason to do so.

    President Trump has the ability to fire anyone within the Executive branch, but he also knows how the press works….firing people en masse is not politically prudent.

    Comey was fired. He was recently called a “pervert” by Trump associates.


    There is a reason why this investigation continues, and the longer it continues, the more it proves President Trump right – the system is rigged, corrupt and rotten.

    Is this investigation that President Trump calls a “witch hunt” really a dragnet operation?

    Would Eric Schneiderman still be the AG of New York if it were not for the witch hunt?

    Could President Trump simply be using the witch hunt investigation as a means to drain the Swamp?

    If that is true, then the longer this investigation goes on, the more I like it.

    Argument in both directions…decide for yourself…
    Hmmm…decisions, decisions.
    Any chance for picking option D) clueless useful id10t/stupid pawn?

    You all give Mueller way too much credit, imo. You assume Mueller removed Strzock for showing bias. Seems more likely, imo, Strzock had initially been shown and removed as a leaker, along with self-admitted leaker Page. Pls recall, McCabe was initially believed to be a non-leaker by INSD, per the DOJ IG-McCabe report.

    Just not believing that these guys are seeing their own corruption for the trees. They never ever see themselves as doing anything wrong. That is how they all get away with so much lying. Even if caught, which is rare, they deny deny deny. Or resort to willful blindness. Or a Higher Loyalty. Or Whatever.

    Odds are my opinion is not correct so will shut up now.


  16. I still fear for the President. If Mueller and Rosenstein are not neutered, Mueller will “get” the President on some process crime. I don’t see how the IG’s report – that goes through Rosenstein – will have any effect on Mueller’s “case”. Mueller is going to strike again and strike soon. Me thinks the best scenario is for Judge Ellis (sp) to throw everything out because Rosenstein did not have the authority to let Mueller expand the investigation. Don’t know – but I’m very very concerned. And, I’m afraid I’m falling into that “Where’s AG Sessions?” trap. MAGA

      OIG repory goes through … I believe the OIG has newly re-established independence, the nations eyes are watching, Congress is waiting, and I believe there is no stopping it.

      Now, Huber? Unknown player. But we like that he worked for 7-8 months unknown, and no leaks.

    So, Andy McCarthy’s article analyzing appointment memo deficiencies was published on July 25. This article could have been what stimulated the Aug 2 clarification memo.

    Also, in thinking back, weren’t the first signs of FBI corruption really the flimflam investigation of the Clinton email situation? I mean it was so blatant that anyone who ever had training in classified
    matter handling KNEW it was corrupt. In addition you had the stories rumoring that Lynch had promised donors Clinton would not be indicted and then, for the willfully blind, there was the Arkansas Tarmac meeting. This was not the Russia collusion scope but certainly Bob didn’t hesitate to pull Clinton lead investigator Strczk into his team, so there’s that.

    Additionally, before and after the election there were signs of dodgy Russia-blame early on. Anyone having a bit of cyber background knew it was fake outrage covering up their own idiocy on cyber security – which just amplified the real issue of the Clinton email affair. The real risk was always that Russians and/or Chinese and/or others had hacked Clinton and had a treasure trove of information useful for extorting a sitting President Clinton. (Coincidentally, not unlike the House Awan affair, at least in respect to blackmail/extortion.) Clinton/Obama, being the sophisticated manipulators of media narratives that they are harnessed the mendacious media and simply turned it around To claim with no evidence whatsoever that Trump colluded with Russian hackers in cheating his way to election victory. The claim was ALWAYS unadulterated BS. The best proof was that ridiculous report IC report agreed by 17 IC Agencies based in part on the Crowdstrike server analysis. Complete baloney from day 1.

    So, it’s really hard for me to accept either Rosenstein or Mueller came into the SC investigation knowing that it was anything other than corrupt to the bone. I will hold out a possibility that the thing is a planned sting designed to somehow tease out the entirety if the “small group”, but for my money, 75% Rosenstein/Mueller are CORRUPT members of the cabal, 25% they are leading a sting. If corrupt, I hope they are both put through prosecutor hell and bankrupted even if there’s not enough evidence to convict.

    Finally, if these two are corrupt, Trump will have known from day 1. Hopefully, he implanted a mole, hid some listening devices, and wrote up a nice Title I FISA warrant himself, which will have generated enough evidence that they can both be literally hung.
