The Insurance Policy, The “EC”, The 2016 FBI Counterintel Operation, and The Mysterious Informant Who Originated Brennan’s EC…

•On July 31st, 2016 the FBI opened a counterintelligence investigation against the Trump campaign. They did not inform congress until March 2017. •At the beginning of August (1st-3rd) 2016 FBI Agent Peter Strzok traveled to London, England for interviews with UK intelligence officials. •On August 15th, 2016 Peter Strzok sends a text message to DOJ Lawyer Lisa Page describing the “insurance policy“, needed in case Hillary Clinton were to lose the election.

Recently there has been a great deal of interest in the origination OF the 2016 FBI counterintelligence operation, and how the FISA court was later used to gain Title-1 surveillance warrant against U.S. person Carter Page; part of that operation.

The current line of inquiry surrounds the originating “EC” or “electronic communication” that was generated by CIA Director John Brennan and passed on to FBI Director James Comey. The EC initiated the FBI Counterintelligence Operation.

Specifically, House Intelligence Committee Devin Nunes has asked about a redacted name within the “EC”, which has led to the DOJ and FBI claiming to release the name would compromise the individual.

All of these inquires, and refusals, center around the origination authority for the FBI Counterintelligence operation. The origination led to the FISA warrant. Remember that.

Chairman Nunes sent Main Justice a classified letter asking questions. DOJ responded saying they would not comply with providing information (letter)  The Washington Post claimed Nunes was looking for information on an FBI/DOJ ‘source’: “a U.S. citizen who has provided intelligence to the CIA and FBI.” Additionally, this “source” was later also described by WaPo as a witness for Robert Mueller’s ongoing investigation.

Speaker of the House Paul Ryan said the Nunes inquiry was appropriate. With Ryan’s support, Chairman Nunes threatened to hold Attorney General Jeff Sessions in contempt of congress for non-compliance with valid congressional oversight. DOJ responded saying they’d like a private meeting.  Yesterday that meeting took place.  Outcome? Sketchy.

In addition to everyone here, Wall Street Journal Author Kimberly Strassel also smells the familiar aroma of a cover-up deployed by administrative state officials inside the DOJ and FBI.  The DOJ is refusing to allow public inquiry into the source John Brennan used to create the “EC”.  Additionally, the Deep State media advocates, writ large, are working furiously to attack Chairman Devin Nunes for his inquires.

Methinks they doth protest too much.

Obviously the compliant media, Democrats and second-tier DOJ/FBI officials don’t want anyone to discover the source of the 2016 counterintelligence operation against the Trump campaign.  Their defensive shield is to claim national security, and ambiguous/undefined threats to ‘sources and methods‘ if CIA Director Brennan’s “source”, was identified.

Well, you know what happens next. Internet researchers smell blood in the Deep State swamp…. People start digging into the details.

Here’s what is already known about the source from leaks:  •a “top secret intelligence source” of the FBI and CIA, •who is a U.S. citizen and who was •involved in the Russia collusion probe. Revealing the source “might damage international relationships. This suggests the “source” •may be overseas, •have ties to foreign intelligence, or both.”

As Kimberly Strassel notes:

“I believe I know the name of the informant, but my intelligence sources did not provide it to me and refuse to confirm it. It would therefore be irresponsible to publish it.”

Consider me irresponsible.

The needle on my give-a-damn-meter broke off around the time the Page/Strzok texts were published.  The intelligence apparatus is still actively trying to destroy a constitutionally elected president. The IC and their co-dependents within the FBI and DOJ are the ones hiding information to protect themselves.  Sunlight is the best disinfectant.

Some brilliant research was already assembled by various people who have looked deeply into this story {HERE and HERE and HERE and HERE} the trail is transparent and Brennan’s FBI/CIA source appears is quite obvious.   I’m just going to connect their well researched dots.

Remember the Peter Strzok trip to London?  The source of John Brennan’s “EC” is likely FBI and CIA operative Stefan Halper a foreign policy expert and Cambridge professor with connections to the CIA and its British counterpart, MI6.

A great background on Halper is HERE.

There are about two dozen check-references to identify who the ‘source’ was in providing the underlying intelligence to CIA Director John Brennan; who then wrote the “EC” for the FBI; which started the 2016 Counterintelligence Operation.

Stefan Halper checks off every single box:  √Currently overseas. √Current/Former CIA operative. √Current/Former source for FBI. √Anti-Trump motive. √Formerly put together this exact type of operation. √Connections to UK spies/intel community/politicians. √Connection to Australian spies/intel community. √Connection to Alexander Downer. √Political operative. √Wanted Clinton to win 2016 election. √Connects to Carter Page. √Connects to George Papadopoulos. √Connects to John Brennan. ETC.

Two months ago Chuck Ross of The Daily Caller took a deep dive on how Stefan Halper interacted with George Papadopoulos and Carter Page.  Halper was way too sketchy, and he was trying to initiate contacts with low-level Trump campaign aides. [SEE HERE]

DAILY CALLER – Two months before the 2016 election, George Papadopoulos received a strange request for a meeting in London, one of several the young Trump adviser would be offered — and he would accept — during the presidential campaign.

The meeting request, which has not been reported until now, came from Stefan Halper, a foreign policy expert and Cambridge professor with connections to the CIA and its British counterpart, MI6.

Halper’s September 2016 outreach to Papadopoulos wasn’t his only contact with Trump campaign members. The 73-year-old professor, a veteran of three Republican administrations, met with two other campaign advisers, The Daily Caller News Foundation learned. (Please Keep Reading)

Again, Go Deep HERE and HERE.

Stefan Halper posesses a very specific set of skills from all of his prior work within politics and the intelligence community. Halper was in contact with every official and entity in the set-up; and Halper was in the right places at the times when all of these set-up meetings and issues took place.

So, what did he do?

Simple, his job was to locate then dirty-up anyone he could convince: 1) to meet with him; 2) engage in his requests; and 3) engage contacts he set up.  Halper was setting up a classic operation to use unknown “useful idiots” to give the appearance of Russian allies/actors.

Halper  provided the underlying imaging, the optics needed for the “EC” referral; which Brennan then used to trigger James Comey; who originated the FBI Counterintelligence Operation.

The fraudulent origin, in combination with the October FISA warrant needed for surveillance gathering, would drive the insurance policy that Peter Strzok described to Lisa Page.

Neither Carter Page nor George Papadopoulos would need to be an active participant in the scheme.  They could be simply (UI) useful idiots.  Hence:

[…] Papadopoulos questioned Halper’s motivation for contacting him, according to a source familiar with Papadopoulos’ thinking. That’s not just because of the randomness of the initial inquiry but because of questions Halper is said to have asked during their face-to-face meetings in London.

According to a source with knowledge of the meeting, Halper asked Papadopoulos: “George, you know about hacking the emails from Russia, right?”  (more)

Some people have called Page and/or Papadopoulos “moles”, but that’s really not what it appears they were.  The better description is “tools”.   Once Stefan Halper dirtied them up, they gave the appearance of being involved in a vast Russian conspiracy.

It was the appearance that mattered in order to generate the foundation for: the counterintelligence operation; and the subsequent FISA surveillance warrant; and the Vast Russian Conspiracy narrative; and ultimately the post-election Special Counsel investigation.  In total, this was the Peter Strzok “Insurance Policy“.

As House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes has begun working backward; and with the Inspector General looking at the ‘small group’ operatives and publicizing the motives; the deep state operatives inside the DOJ and FBI obviously don’t want sunlight going all the way back to the individual(s) at the beginning of the operation.  There is a risk there. Hence, they try to hide behind ‘National Security compromise’ etc, and an ideological media willing to assist in keeping it all hidden.

Chairman Nunes has requested the documents be unredacted to the HPSCI.  The  DOJ/FBI are claiming if they unredact the originating documents, they will likely be leaked by congress and compromise the sources therein.

Additionally, Chairman Nunes published the HPSCI Report on Russian Active Measures; and in doing so the DOJ and FBI redacted his report for the public.  Nunes objected to the redactions.

In part of the report the HPSCI describes the origin of the FBI 2016 Counterintelligence Operation.  The DOJ and FBI redacted the paragraph where Nunes outlined who was targeted at the start.

If my analysis is accurate, there were FOUR initial targets of the FBI counterintelligence operation who were connected to the Trump campaign.  Here’s what I think those redactions are hiding:

[Page 12, PDF HERE]

The DOJ didn’t redact Carter Page because he was already ‘outed’ in the House FISA memo.  However, I believe the current DOJ redactions are hiding George Papadopoulos, Paul Manafort and Rick Gates.

Those would be the July 2016 targets outlined by the originating EC (electronic communication) from John Brennan when the FBI Counterintelligence operation began.

    This will happen every four years if Obama avoids prison. Nobody worth a damn will run for president in the future except for deep state criminals if everyone involved doesn’t get convicted and sentenced. Peru has recently thrown two ex-presidents in prison. One was Fujimori and his intel chief that stole the country’s gold using helicopters and also disappeared people. If a regular US citizen / group of US citizens infiltrated a presidential campaign using foreign citizens to frame the newly elected president it would mean life in prison. The fact that Obama and Clinton did this to the Trump campaign using taxpayer dollars from a position of power and trust makes it more egregious.

        Halper’s September 2016 outreach to Papadopoulos wasn’t his only contact with Trump campaign members.

        You shouldn’t discount that the Austalian and Halper didn’t understand that Papadoofus’ earlier statements about Russians having “Hillary’s emails” did not refer to the subsequent DNC hack, but news back in March 2015 about Hillary’s private server and “missing emails.”

        Thousands of people on the internet were joking about Russians and others having Hillary’s emails due to her unsecure server or her unsecure personal phones.

        Halper and the Australian could be stupid…there’s plenty of that in the top levels of the FBI, or could have been victimised by the same propaganda in the media that sought to blend Trump’s comments about Hillary’s emails into the “DNC Hack” story.

        From what we already know in open source material, Rogers told the FISC _after_ the FISC approved closing third-party FBI access that the levels of illegal query surveillance were not substantially different in 2015 from 2016. That means ALL the opposition candidates were being spied on by 0bama.

        Subsequently, NSA also revealed that the improper use of third-party contractors by the FBI and NSC went back to at LEAST 2012. Yes, 0bama was spying on Romney.

            The DOJ could have completed the ‘investigation’ of HRC months before the July 5 press conference–after all, they performed zero actual investigative work. But they planned to wait till July–hence the term Mid Year Exam. They were waiting until they would know who the Republican nominee would be. If Jeb Bush or someone else acceptable to the Deep State, then HRC would have been charged with a crime (assumedly, something minor and technical–but sufficiently embarassing to her to force her to withdraw).

      And people question why we need the 2nd Amendment. While a free press SHOULD be holding the government accountable for the effort by connected individuals to effect a coup, the “free press” has determined that their sympathies lie with those who would subvert the Constitution.

      Now, given that the CIA actually has a history of planting “journalists” and also has a history of spying on journalists, one might legitimately question the notion that there even is a free press.

      The whole corrupt mess needs to be exposed and the media needs to own their participation in what is the biggest scandal in our nation’s history. Until the media owns that they have been willing participants in this sad affair, the swamp will remain deep. Of course, the whole notion of “investigative journalism” is almost dead these days, what with the need to be first to break news (or are they really just breaking wind) in our 24/7/365 hyper-connected world. Exceptions are a few blogs, like TCTH, with Sundance the pre-eminent investigative journalist of our day.

Even Nigel Farage walks a thin rope when he speaks on TV, and he knows it. What Trump suffers now, UKIP suffered then. The smears, lies, vote fraud. I remember a time when UKIP would get just 25 votes. Just remember why people fled England, Ireland, Scotland, and Wales to help found America. It was in the pursuit of freedom, and happiness. Europe has never been free and happy. Do your research. Mill companies would purchase babies and own them until they were 25. The landed gentry who owned the mill companies would forbid servants to be able to read, or get married. 5 year old children would be sent up burning chimneys to sweep them, and many would die. The poor families of London would make matches so gents could light up, and most times their homes would burn down because of it, or their lungs gave out on the Sulphur. The British were always slaves, they are slaves still, to Socialism. That was their reward for fighting in wars. The Irish starved to death by the landed gentry who took all the meat, butter and dairy and left them with just potatoes that rotted in the ground. Millions died of starvation, and on the coffin ships bringing them to America. The British love America, envy America, and given a chance would emulate America including having a Trump type as leader. America, is the greatest country on God’s earth.

      Given previous SD posts, we believe that embedded traitors in NSA were working with Strzok and Ohr to pass purloined (before any FISA warrant) transcripts to Chrissy Steele via Fusion GPS, so a dossier could be built to get the Title 1 FISA Warrant that the FBI / DoJ back-dated to before the purloining began.

      Maybe they didn’t back-date it far enough, and some of those NSA / CIA traitors can be fried extra-crispy in a court of law!

      I’ll bet that those liars in NSA are still unmasking US Persons and taking notes that they smuggle to the ex-Feinstein clerk who fancies himself as one of the big-boys now, with his own dossier seeking mob.

          Contractors are not allowed to work in a government facility without “govvie” supervision. NSA is where the extract and unmasking occurred. It was a government operation.

          Later, Fusion GPS and other contractors were given the transcripts for them to process.

          You are wrong to assert that Fusion GPS was under contract to work inside the NSA, using their “high-side” computers to extract, and expose the name(s) of the US Persons who the software already masked with names like “US Person 1” et cetera.

          I seriously doubt that any Fusion GPS person has the clearances, polygraphs, badges, and a valid contract number, to enter any NSA building. The FBI? Sure. They are pretty lax over there. But the NSA? Getting inside is a hardship unless you have the proper chits.

          Mangiante briefly worked for the London-based professor in 2016 in the months leading up to the election at the London Centre of International Law Practice, according to Business Insider.

          It’s unclear if Mifsud personally introduced Papadopoulos to Mifsud, but she told Business Insider that Papadopoulos asked her about Mifsud.

    Sundance does another of his superior detailed analysis of who (Stefan Halper) was a key Swamp creature that helped justify FISA surveillance after Admiral Mike Rogers – NSA Head (he was informed of abuse) cut off NSA databases to the Obama Admin and their intelligence contractors. They had been abusing the system for some time, before Rogers cut them off to some intelligence access.

    Although I agree that it makes sense that Halper was a major string puller to set up Donald Trump’s campaign with “Russian Collusion in the 2016 Election”, I still believe that it is even more embarrassing for the Deep State.

    My guess is that Carter Page, the initial named target of the FISA warrant – allowing much wider surveillance of American citizens, is and has been “working” for the CIA/FBI. I have seen stories to that effect in the past.

    Imagine if it came out that a paid employee/informant of the CIA/FBI was used to set up another supposed Russia/Putin link that allowed wider spying on the Trump campaign and also the Trump Presidency? Devastating!

    One other thing, the FACT that Halper is a “professor”, likely poisoning young minds with his anti-freedom hatred, says much about both him and the academics who hired him. Just like the Clap tard being hired by hus fellow commies at CNN has nothing to do with reporting, just promoting there anti-american agenda.

        The silver spoon. Ayers, Kerry, Mueller, Bill Clinton

        for him in getting into Columbia, Harvard.

        And. Every single one of them never did any heavy
        lifting towards all that was given to them. None
        of them worked any grunt jobs during the summer.
        None of them ate Ramen or Kraft Macaroni and
        Cheese in their dorms. Who among these had
        to make car payments in high school or college?

        Which reminds me. Throw Romney into the mix.
        His daddy ran the car company. You can bet he
        was driving a bitchin’ Javelin back in the day.
        For free.

        Why do we keep thinking putting persons like
        this in power will have any benefit whatsoever for
        The Little Joe? We are an alien species to these
        entitled assholes.

        It’s nearing election time.

        Start asking question at town hall meetings for
        candidates. See if they have any life experiences
        onboard similar to ours. Empathy won’t occur
        unless we get some people capable of it.

      Good question. Who was Brennan’s puppet master?
      – Bush Connections

      – Bus-Clinton Connections
      – Obama WH.

      I think someone from the GOPe, on behalf of the Bush Family, approached Halper. Halper was a loyalist from the early HW Bush days. Halper had stong CIA connections from the time that Bush ran it.We know Bush and Clintons didn ‘t want Trump to be president. Halper agreed to work with Brennan. Team Obama was purposely kep out of the loop early on in the coup (plausible deniability). But once the FISA wiretaps were approved, they abused the unmasking.

      Does this explain why Brennan/Comey never informed the G8 of the CI operation against Trump?

(It was supposed to be a hung primary and the nominating committee got to pick Jeb. Sundance explained the splitter strategy during the campaign.)

        So I think the Bush family started the sting against Trump’s campaign and then the DemonRats picked it up and ran with it after Trump won the nomination.

          This sceanario is looking more and more plausible.

          Old man Bush, the CIA spymaster, would have had a roledex full of spooks that he could enlist in subterfuge. Jeb at one of the debates is insulted by Trump, up setting the Bushes who were in the audience. Bush Sr. Says “we’ll get that SOB for what he did to my boy.” Trump plows ahead to get the nomination and oid man Bush, employs Steel to create the sleeze docier to smear Trump. Steel puts together a whopper docier featuring the golden showers in Moscow and a clandestine meeting in Prague by Trumps Attorney with Russians.

          The Bush’s decide that the docier is too over the top even for them to use and decide to drop it. Steel then goes to Fusion GPS and says boy do I have something for you on Trump. FGPS alerts the Clinton campaign who then buys it and pays FGPS for a more enhanced and graphic version. The Clinton’s get Obama to unleash Brennan who gets the GCHQ to “originate” dirt on Trump. Enter Halper who is a known spook who is recruited to find one or two patsies who he can frame as under Russian influence.

          Halper picks out Page and Papadopoulos, and develops intelligence that’s sketchy about the Russians and Trumps boys and gives it to Brennan. Brennan then turns over the intelligence to Comey who organizes a FISA warrant to spy on Page and Papadopoulos and the Trump campaign. The plot thickens as the Obama Whitehouse, and Clapper et al start using the FISA warrant to unmask surveillance on The Trump campaign. The intel gathered by the WH is given to HIllary to use in her campaign against Trump.

          So the Bushes launched a smear that ended up being bought by Clinton, who got the Whitehouse via Brennon to start FISA 3 surveillance on Trump which was weaponized and turned into agitprop to destroy

          Trump. Obama, the Clinton’s, the Obama IC’s, DoJ, DoS and the FBI were all in on it. The ultimate “Dirty Tricks” ever used in a presidential campaign were employed to stop Trump.

          And thanks to Sundance, now you know the rest of the story.

        By Thomas Lifson

        “What could cause the two congressmen[Nunes & Gowdy] to be so patient? My guess is that they learned that a criminal investigation is underway. In other words, the people who authorized the placing of a spy in the Trump campaign and other abuses will be indicted, and premature disclosure of this information could imperil the prosecution.”

    MILITARY TRAINING:
    Admiral Rogers and General Flynn are obvious
    Pompeo — From 1986 to 1991, Pompeo served in the U.S. Army as an Armor Branch Officer with the 2nd Squadron, 7th Cavalry in the 4th Infantry Division, reaching the rank of Captain.

    Woolsey — Advisor (during military service) on the U.S. Delegation to the Strategic Arms Limitation Talks (SALT 1), Helsinki and Vienna, 1969–1970
    General Counsel to the U.S. Senate Committee on Armed Services, 1970–73
    Under Secretary of the Navy, 1977–1979

    Sessions — served in the Army Reserve in the 1970s, with the rank of captain.

    President Trump — Five Years at New York Military Academy
    ………………

    So all these men in that briefing had military training.

    What are all Officers taught….
    DO not fratenize with enlisted men
    WHY?
    Because you may have to send them out to certain death to achieve your objective.

    Do you really think Any of these men would save a few foot solders from a bit of discomfort and sacrifice the ENTIRE COUNTRY as a result?

  24. Excellent Work SD! But I want to cheer you up as I sense your frustration. Today I am more convinced than ever that: SESSION/ROSEY/WRAY/MUELLER =SRWM= WHITE HATS!!!

    To understand an investigation I always use old school techniques and write down people, places, and things on a yellow legal pad. And then I connect the dots, lines, and circles. Fasten your seat belts. The clues are there, but the MSM narratives are clouding our vision. Let me unfogg a few details so we can see more clearly of VERY RECENT events and put them together. TLDR

    Nunes Gowdy v DOJ- We all know that Gowdy and Nunes already have the plant’s name. They have read it and have access to the docs. What is going on? Why the fight? Wrestling!!! Kayfabe. Work, Babyfaces, and heels. Its all a work! The fight is to highlight the fact to the public that there was an IC plant/spy working against Trump. The fight will be covered by the MSM, but the plant will not. YET! SRWM know they cant control the narrative just yet. So lets throw out the bread crumbs. The MSM thinks the “fight” hurts Nunes, but their bias blinds them to the fact of Who does the the story help?- DJT was spied on.

    The “leak” of the underlying plant/spy story helps POTUS. Leaks are now benefitting Trump. Think about that! Does the Mike Cohen leak hurt Trump or hurt Mike Cohen? Think!

    Adam Schiff/ Eric Swallow- Missing from CNN. The 4th time Schiff “will be viewing documents separately and at a later time from Nunes and Gowdy”. Its a cover story to save face. Schiff is no longer allowed to look at anything classified. They caught him leaking. They may not target or charge him. SRWM may be satisfied telling him privately that he is being benched. If he complains, they will prosecute him. He has been de-fanged. Sit down and shut up until we call on you!

    THINK about these 2 facts! You would not engage in a fake fight if you were enemies. This is a “work” to drive the underlying story (the plant/spy) into the public domain. If you are pretending to fight, you must be working together. Wrestling! Babyfaces and Heels! Its a work!

    Mike Cohen- He is a scumbag and grifter. Unknown to POTUS he set up his own mini Clinton Foundation. MUELLER TOOK DOWN COHEN TO HELP TRUMP NOT TO HURT TRUMP!!! The White hats want this grifter away from POTUS and his important work.

    Jared Kushner- another scumbag. His family had a visa scam with the Chinese, His father is an ex-con who was shaking down Quatar and SA and UAE to bailout the 666 building. Bye bye Jared!
    NO SECURITY CLEARANCE FOR YOU!!!

    Stormy/Avanneti- Avanetti is on CNN more than Wolf Blitzer! Why is Avanetti not working for Stormy. If he was representing Stormy he would be in arbitration with the corrupt Mike Cohen looking for a settlement. Instead he gave away her 60 minutes story for free, has no book deal, and seems more interested in TAKING DOWN MIKE COHEN! Now Avanettis own dirty deals are coming out. Stormy has had her 15 minutes. Cohen is away from Trump. CNN has no journalistic standards. Avenatti, Stormy, Cohen, CNN/MSNBC are all thrown in the trash bin in one fell swoop.
    Meanwhile POTUS is working on a Korean Peace Treaty.

    Mike Wolf- Fire & Fury was supposed to lay down the case for the 25th Ammendment. Well, that did not end well. Bannon the leaker and his buddies in the MSM took a hit on this one.

    HR McMasters- Who was the one person in the room that can be tied to all of the leaks of POTUS conversations with foreign leaders. No more leaks since he was fired/quit. Coincidence?

    Pompeo- Quits CIA for SoS and not a single person knew he went to NOKO at least twice. Did POTUS already go to NOKO? Pompeo>Haspel>BRENNAN. Get BRENNANs name out there! Condition the public about BRENNAN

    Gina Haspel- Why her and what CIA Director is her treatment being compared to??? see below

    John Brennan- They are putting his name out there with the Gina nomination. Why? The EC starts with Brennan. Seymour Hersh- “Trump Russia was a BRENNAN OPERATION.” Brennan freaking out on twitter as the walls are closing in. EC=Brennan=spy/palnt.

    Comey book- SRWM let him write a book??? Really? Sure, he just destroyed his own credibility and usefulness as a witness.

    Rosey- If there was an obstruction case, wouldnt he be recused. THERE IS NO OBSTRUCTION CASE!

    Expanded SC Mandate- Who did that hurt??? Not Trump! Swamp creatures. Manafort, Gates, Podesta, Cohen!

    Mike Flynn reappearance- I do not believe a 30 year spook was tripped up by Sally Yates or Peter Strok.. Nope! What has Flynn been doing for all this time? Why is he re-emerging? Why has he not been charged?

    Manafort- A swamp scumbag, yet he has not ratted on Trump? Did Flynn run him off the campaign?

    Gates- A swamp scumbag taking down another swamp scumbag- Manafort, Podesta? Who does Podesta lead to?

    McCain- Has taken plenty of money from Russians and his fingerprints all over fake dossier. Money, yachts, and oligarchs. Keating 5.

    Tony Podesta- WAPO story about him recently. Why? He was not interviewed! Where is he? Why a sudden story about him?

    Glenn Simpson- Blurts out the truth about the plant/spy under oath, but then writes an editorial walking it back, OOOPS!!!!

    Mike Rogers retires- would he retire if this fake investigation posed a threat? If Mueller and Rosey and Sessions were dirty he would know. HE WOULD KNOW! Do you think he would walk out ON TRUMP given the risks he already took? Think about this one everytime your faith about SRWM drops. Mike Rogers would not leave Trump swimming with sharks. He got this!

    The Feinstein Fusion GPS testimony leak- Hey Glenn, you screwed up. Clean up your testimony!

    There is no way Trump could move these pieces by himself. Even if he is a VSG. He has help. He has a lot of help. And his patriots are using the techniques of his enemies. They are putting names and events out there to the MSM to condition the public to what is coming. Its too complicated to lay out the narrative yet, so morsels are tossed out there. SRWM cant control the narrative yet. So patience! The FBI, CIA, and NSA traitors have been removed. Rogers, Pompeo, Wray, and Coats have it covered folks. They had 15 months and the top rungs of the IC deep state have been taken down. HAS THAT EVER HAPPENED! A TOTAL CLEAN OUT OF THE IC COMMUNITY AND THE 7TH FLOOR OF THE FBI!!! Look at how many are gone! I think POTUS and Friends have this.

      You said:Adam Schiff/ Eric Swallow- Missing from CNN. The 4th time Schiff “will be viewing documents separately and at a later time from Nunes and Gowdy”. Its a cover story to save face. Schiff is no longer allowed to look at anything classified. They caught him leaking.

      On that specific point, my thinking was similar – not that he was already caught, but that they are trying to ‘smoke him out’.

      So; instead of Schiff being no longer ‘cleared’ to see such material, my mini-theory was that they want him to see the ‘leak catcher‘ special altered version; so as to see if those unique-to-him facts get leaked (whether directly by Shiff, or someone ‘downstream’ of him).

      Hadn’t thought of your take on it. It would mean that they’re no longer trying to catch him (my thinking), but that he’s already been caught ‘red-handed’.

      Very interesting!

Nothing ever happens and Trump is kicking back. So I assume they are all really on the same page

      I too have trouble with the Mueller angle because….it’s not just Mueller.
      It’s 18 or 19 (I’ve lost count) hardcore Clinton anti-Trump vampires lawyers and staff.
      Creatures of the night they may be but they’re not stupid.
      How could they not know that Mueller is actually working AGAINST them?

      They would have figured it out long ago, leaked it out and/or quit.
      Instead the narrative is “Don’t even THINK about firing Mueller”.

      I guess there is the possibility they’ve all seen the light and have converted to MAGA-ers but that’s about as probable as is ALL the Sports Illustrated swimsuit models showing up at my birthday pool party. (It’s in August just in case)

    Sundance solved another crime. Treepers investigated and included the same this week.

    So where does it stand?

    Nunes & Gowdy in a stand down until next week — possibly when the IG Report is published?

    Bottom line. There are so many implicated co-criminals involved in this seditious conspiracy that it is very messy. It would require AG Sessions overseeing Huber (which he’s currently supposed to be doing) and any others in the prosecution of current/former DoJ/FIB, O Cabinet officers and administrative staffers, and potentially even a former president.

    The jury is still out on Sessions.

    The real bottom line is if President Trump will not only allow this course of action, but force justice be done. This imo is the crucial decision POTUS must make and enforce via AG Sessions or via the removal/replacement of Sessions.

    Suddenly for me much of what POTUS has done pales in comparison to what he is facing here. It literally does mean the saving of our country or not.

      Lucille, many thanks for posting the AT article by Thomas Lifson. I would have most likely missed it if you hadn’t given us the link, and it is well worth the read. FTA:

      “Following the meeting, the two chairs (Nunes and Gowdy) issued a statement that expresses surprising patience, indicating to me that something big is on the way…

      What could cause the two congressmen to be so patient? My guess is that they learned that a criminal investigation is underway. In other words, the people who authorized the placing of a spy in the Trump campaign and other abuses will be indicted, and premature disclosure of this information could imperil the prosecution.”

      That thought had occurred to me, also, and I find it very comforting. So I’m clinging to hope here…for now.

    THE OBAMA DEEP STATE HAD A SPY INSIDE THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN!

    [snip]

    “But if they thought Hillary was sure to win, why bother spying on Trump? A sinister reason: To prosecute him — for something, anything they could discover — after he lost, so as to properly cow Hillary’s opposition. That might be true, but on the other hand, LBJ spied on Goldwater when his win was assured, and Nixon did the same vs. McGovern. Why would unthreatened incumbents spy on opponents they expect to lose? Maybe they do it for the same reason a dog licks himself: Because he can.”

    Here’s an interesting article with som excerpts:
    The Counterintelligence Probe’s Phantom Origin
    https://spectator.org/the-counterintelligence-probes-phantom-origin/

    The probe didn’t start “by the book.” It started largely on the say-so of John Brennan, whose CIA operated like a branch office of the Hillary campaign. We know from Brennan’s own testimony and leaks that he had been lobbying the FBI to start the probe since at least the spring of 2016. But whatever alleged intelligence Brennan gave to the FBI, it was too flaky for the FBI to commit to print.

    The probe was the product of a shell game played by a cast of Trump haters — from Brennan to Peter Strzok (the FBI’s liaison to the CIA, which is a key fact in all of this) to Hillary hired gun Christopher Steele. Brennan, since at least April of 2016, had been shaking foreign intelligence agencies down for any dirt on Trumpworld. He claimed that he had come up with some from Estonia, England, and other trusted “counterparts” and shoveled it to Strzok, who then dumped it on the desk of other Hillary partisans in the FBI/Justice Department’s senior leadership. Strzok would later confess to his mistress, in between calling Trump a “douche,” that the probe was just a fishing expedition with no “big there there.”

    Brennan’s bumptiousness was so great in pushing and publicizing this bogus probe that even Harry Reid would remark upon it to David Corn and Michael Isikoff. Brennan had an “ulterior motive” in leaking the existence of the probe to him, Reid told the authors. The very thought of Donald Trump as president made Brennan see red and caused him to lose all judgment.

    Out of embarrassment at having started a counterintelligence probe on the hunch of such an unhinged Hillary partisan, the FBI has scrambled to find a better reason for launching it and thought it had found one in the George Papadopoulos yarn. But that one just gets weirder and weirder. According to the Daily Caller, Alexander Downer, the Aussie diplomat who partied with Papadopoulos and claims the Trump volunteer made an incriminating remark, had sought out the meeting, making it look like entrapment. Downer is known for greasing the wheels of the Clinton Foundation and belongs to the jet set of international busybodies up in arms over Trump. But whatever he squeezed out of Papadopoulos, it wasn’t specific or weighty enough to include in the originating document for the probe, according to Nunes.

      Charles P. Cabell
      CIA career[edit]
      On April 23, 1953, while still an active air force officer, he was appointed deputy director of the CIA. In 1956, along with the CIA’s Richard Bissell, he flew to Bonn, to brief the West German Chancellor, Konrad Adenauer, on the U-2 program. Adenauer allowed U-2 planes, pilots, and support teams to be based at Wiesbaden. He was promoted to full general in 1958.

      Cabell became Deputy Director of CIA under Allen Dulles. He was forced by President Kennedy to resign, on January 31, 1962, following the failure of the Bay of Pigs Invasion.[2] Cabell’s brother, Earle Cabell, was Mayor of Dallas when Kennedy visited that city and was assassinated, on November 22, 1963.

      [3]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_P._Cabell

      Here is the first major revelation from the historic release of previously withheld government records on the JFK Assassination: the mayor of Dallas when President John F. Kennedy was killed in that city was a CIA asset.

      We were alerted to this salient fact by retired military intelligence officer and author John Newman, who is conducting a thorough analysis of the long-secret documents.

      At the time of the assassination, Dallas Mayor Earle Cabell, brother of one-time Deputy Director of Central Intelligence Charles P. Cabell, had been a CIA asset since 1956.

      It is worth noting that Kennedy dismissed CIA Director Allen Dulles in November 1961, and that Earle Cabell’s brother Charles left the CIA on January 31, 1962, after Kennedy forced him to resign. Thus, both Dulles and Charles Cabell were no longer working for the CIA on November 22, 1963, when Kennedy was killed.

      Earle Cabell, who had been elected mayor of Dallas in May 1961, oversaw arrangements for Kennedy’s trip and motorcade, which took him through Dealey Plaza, a route that violated almost all standard rules for presidential safety — and where normal safeguards, such as sealing windows and placing sharpshooters, were ignored. This is of interest to researchers into the assassination, who have been collecting evidence of CIA ties to a host of individuals who figure in the events of 11/22/63 (see also WhoWhatWhy Editor-in-Chief Russ Baker’s Family of Secrets for more on this topic.)

      Below is Earle Cabell’s 10/17/56 CIA Secrecy Agreement, his CIA 201 file cover sheet (a “personality” file opened on actual or potential agents, assets, or informants), his 5/13/57 CIA Personality 201 File Request, and a cover sheet indicating that the House Select Committee on Assassinations (HSCA) reviewed his 201 file.

      It is quite remarkable both that this document was withheld all these years under the criterion that it was “Not Believed Relevant” (NBR) to the Kennedy assassination. Judge John Tunheim, who led the JFK Assassination Records Review Board, a 1990s successor to the HSCA, recently said he now believes that many of the NBR-designated documents are indeed relevant.

      This raises the question of who is determining which documents to release, what training they receive, and under what instructions they operate.

      RICHARD BISSELL: CIA BLACK OPS/ EXECUTIVE ACTION CHIEF
      EXCERPT:
      In December, 1956, Frank Wisner, head of the Directorate for Plans, an organization instructed to conduct covert anti-Communist operations around the world, suffered a mental breakdown and was diagnosed as suffering from manic depression. During his absence Wisner’s job was covered by Richard Helms. The CIA sent Wisner to the Sheppard-Pratt Institute, a psychiatric hospital near Baltimore. He was prescribed psychoanalysis and shock therapy (electroconvulsive treatment). It was not successful and still suffering from depression, he was released from hospital in 1958.

      Wisner was too ill to return to his post as head of the Directorate for Plans (DPP). Allen W. Dulles therefore sent him to London to be CIA chief of station in England. Dulles decided that Bissell rather than Richard Helms should become the new head of the DPP. Helms became Bissell’s deputy.

      The Directorate for Plans was responsible for what became known as the CIA’s Black Operations. This involved a policy that was later to become known as Executive Action (a plan to remove unfriendly foreign leaders from power). This including a coup d’état that overthrew the Guatemalan government of Jacobo Arbenz in 1954 after he introduced land reforms and nationalized the United Fruit Company.

      Other political leaders deposed by Executive Action included Patrice Lumumba of the Congo, the Dominican Republic dictator Rafael Trujillo, General Abd al-Karim Kassem of Iraq and Ngo Dinh Diem, the leader of South Vietnam. However, his main target was Fidel Castro who had established a socialist government in Cuba.

      In March I960, President Dwight Eisenhower of the United States approved a CIA plan to overthrow Castro. The strategy was organised by Bissell. Sidney Gottlieb of the CIA Technical Services Division was asked to come up with proposals that would undermine Castro’s popularity with the Cuban people. Plans included a scheme to spray a television studio in which he was about to appear with an hallucinogenic drug and contaminating his shoes with thallium which they believed would cause the hair in his beard to fall out.

      These schemes were rejected and instead Bissell decided to arrange the assassination of Fidel Castro. In September 1960, Bissell and Allen W. Dulles, the director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), initiated talks with two leading figures of the Mafia, Johnny Roselli and Sam Giancana. Later, other crime bosses such as Carlos Marcello, Santos Trafficante and Meyer Lansky became involved in this plot against Castro.
      The strategy was managed by Sheffield Edwards and Robert Maheu, a veteran of CIA counter-espionage activities, was instructed to offer the Mafia $150,000 to kill Fidel Castro. The advantage of employing the Mafia for this work is that it provided CIA with a credible cover story. The Mafia were known to be angry with Castro for closing down their profitable brothels and casinos in Cuba. If the assassins were killed or captured the media would accept that the Mafia were working on their own.

      The Federal Bureau of Investigation had to be brought into this plan as part of the deal involved protection against investigations against the Mafia in the United States.(SOUND FAMILIAR ???) Castro was later to complain that there were twenty ClA-sponsered attempts on his life. Eventually Johnny Roselli and his friends became convinced that the Cuban revolution could not be reversed by simply removing its leader. However, they continued to play along with this CIA plot in order to prevent them being prosecuted for criminal offences committed in the United States….MORE:
