Andrew McCarthy Discusses The Ongoing Battle Between Congress and the Careerists Within the DOJ…

Former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy appears on Shannon Bream’s television show to discuss the ongoing battle between congress and the DOJ over information and evidence surrounding DOJ/FBI corruption in 2015, 2016 and 2017.

It’s a good interview to watch because McCarthy has just read a large portion of the text messages between Lisa Page and Peter Strzok for THIS ARTICLE.  As a result of reviewing the content, McCarthy is able to accurately frame his reference points and provides information that is divergent from the MSM preferred narrative. WATCH:

.

Again CTH reminds readers, despite thousands of articles written by MSM, you can count on one hand the number of journalists who have actually read through all 500+ pages (both releases) of text message communication between DOJ Lawyer Lisa Page and FBI Agent Peter Strzok.  It’s easy to spot who has not read them because the content of their articles is disputed by the underlying facts within Page/Strzok internal messages.

The article by McCarthy referenced in the interview is very good.  SEE IT HERE

As McCarthy points out, it is not likely there was a singular FBI source buried within the Trump campaign.  Instead it’s more likely that particular campaign aides were targeted and dirtied-up by unofficial intelligence operators like Stefan Halper.  Once those aides were given the appearance of being aligned with foreign enterprise, the FBI was then able to conduct surveillance and construct a narrative useful for their ‘insurance policy’.

More on that approach previously outlined HERE.

    Set-up from the start, investigated w/ using “evidence” they supplied, Mueller running interference to hide their conspiratorial seditious treasonous plot to take our President Trump out, the Fake News MSM walking in lock step with them, these traitors need to face justice & execution!

      The CIA, FBI, and DOJ have been running this country for so long they look at Senate oversight people as meer gnats that are annoying but free to ignore. They think they are the ones who are smarter and more capable of running America. They should all be purged. And prosecuted.

        CIA has the structure and span to plan and coordinate. FBI, DOJ are then tools that with CIA embeds like at the State Department, give the CIA legal cover to operate in the US.

        So, the CIA is the spider web, but there is always a spider. Shrubs, are either the spider or close to the spider. Clintons are just vultures, the tell is Hillary’s groveling around that Rotheschild woman (a favorite candidate for a spider), not the other way around. It may also be that the CIA is just an arm like MI6, etc. Shrubs’ alliance with the Saudi’s is another piece (another spider nest).

        Trump is a patriot working around these spiders to MAGA. He is not trying to overthrow, but to redirect the spiders. I doubt he or his family would live 24 hours if the spiders were truly threatened. Just my opinion.

        And China is outside the spider webs and Russia is attempting to free itself?

        Kill the spiders and new ones will crawl onto the webs? Solution, just make good deals for America and MAGA. And that is what I think Trump is doing. Deal with the spiders, don’t kill them is his strategy.

      Just imagine — The Russian Bolsheviks have taken power subtly. For the last 8 years, they’ve had total power: The media, the bureaucracy, education, entertainment. Half the country are useful idiots, having no idea that we’re slouching toward a one party dictatorship.

      Only the military hasn’t been totally politicized (unfortunately some have, however).

      The county has an election and to the American Bolshies unending surprise — they lose! So what can they do? If they had the military, it’d be simple. Just stage an open coup, bullets flying, opposition jailed, executions carried out. But without the military, that can’t be done. So what to do?

      Exactly as it is being attempted. Hire a “special counsel” and have the media, bureaucracy, education and entertainment paint him/her as an honorable man and the winner of the election as having some how cheated.

      What we tend to forget is that the Russian Bolsheviks took over Russia 100 years ago. Nothing stays the same. What worked for them then would not work today — probably not even in Russia. Taking over a country now has to be done with a patina of legality, so they hold elections.

      No one thought Hillary-Obama would lose in 2016. It was a done deal. When she lost, they had to scramble. Mueller is that scramble.

      Also, if Rosenstein is responsible for reviewing/commenting on the DOJ OIG draft reports, I’m sure he’s doing everything he can to water it down and stop reporting anything really bad for the corrupt cabal. I hope the DOJ OIG has a spine and reports the truth.

    Great interview with Shannon Bream.

    The article is fantastic by McCarthy. He’s done yeoman’s work over the duration of the Mueller debacle.

    I think the think I liked best about his piece is his conclusion — one that makes a lot of sense — that all of the relevant information can be found in the Strzok/Page texts. Everything. As in, probably not a lot more needs to be done to understand the entire coup plotting than those texts. And I’m sure that the texts include Halper.

    Also, from reading McCarthy’s piece, I think there is a very good chance that he reads the Treehouse. Not from anything he says, in particular, but just how he goes about “thinking” through things, and even that he decided to go and look up the texts in the first place.

    The word is spreading. The tipping point is approaching, if we’re not there already.

      Or that he’s *finally* reading Treehouse, and realized after months that it just might be useful to read the texts.

      I won’t knock him too much — agree, he’s provided extremely helpful and careful analysis, especially with his SDNY perspective. He’s on a very short list of good analysis. (One biggie was to catch in real-time tthe sketchy sleight-of-hand over counterintelligence vs. criminal investigation, and the inherently flawed/invalid SC authorization).

      But still — as an authoritative voice on these issues with such a prominent platform — and especially with his background — how can you *not* read the source material?? His “I thought they were star-crossed lovers” excuse ironically seems to validate another of Sundance’s inferences — that the “affair” was dispensed as cover, to tacitly dissuade serious attention.

      Oh well — so glad he’s on it now!

        He wanted it to be true. Like many NeverTrumpers, his own prejudices get in the way of really examining the facts. But McCarthy is honest, and so eventually he had to take the plunge and look for the truth himself.

    Redactions make it harder to figure out what happened. But not impossible. The longer the DOJ/FBI drag this out the better we all get at figuring this out.

    I absolutely love the Warner texts to the Senator Mark Warner was trying to set up a covert meeting. In the text messages Lobbyist Adam Waldman is telling Senator Warner that Chris Steele will not meet with him without a written letter (request) from the Senate Intelligence Committee.

    These are just delicious. Then I read the letter that Senator Grassley sent to Waldman and sent a copy to Dianne Feinstein. Ah, the cherry on top! Especially when the texts reference:
    “That “Dan Jones”, mentioned above, talking with Chris Steele and told to go to see Senator Warner, is the former senate staffer Dan Jones, who was previously attached to Dianne Feinstein.”

        Yes, same here. Somehow with it emerging that human source(s) unofficially linked to the FBI/CIA (and even Mueller!) are part of the origination story — it’s like the shades emerging within lines that’ve already been drawn, the picture emerges quickly now, and unmistakably. Or like the fax machine spinning out an image of Keyser Soze . . .

        (BTW — I just tortured myself by reading a couple “deep-dive” posts at a respected “well-informed” left-leaning website to see where the thinking is . . . and oh my dear heavens. They think Nunes is corrupt, shilling for Trump, and possibly a Mueller target; they’ve picked up the “extortion” theme; they think the pursuit of whether there’s an “informant” referenced in the EC is crazy desperation, and (this is my favorite!) — they’ve parsed out a case for how the 49 Mueller questions signal a very real possibility that he is hunting down actual “collusion” (don’t ask). It really makes me wonder if there ever will be common acceptance of the truth . . .)

            Despite convictions, despite release of secret spying evidence we collected showing their guilt, and despite evidence released from the former Soviet Union proving beyond a shadow of doubt that they ran a Soviet spy ring, there are still people who believe the Rosenbergs were innocent.

            There is a also a holdout of those who argue that she was innocent, or didn’t do enough to be killed. She was the best recruiter. She recruited people to spy by recruiting their wives first. I guess fellow travelers tended to marry each other.

We were extremely flirty with each other and most people we encountered thought we were a “couple”. Yet in all that time we spent together, we never had a physical or romantic relationship of any kind. Why? Because we knew that would screw up our climbing partnership and to us, the climbing partnership was simply more important than getting laid.

      My take is that the Strzok and Page relationship was of pretty much the same type as I just described above. I’d bet my life savings that they were not sleeping together because to them, their mission was more important than sex.

        At this point I think whether or not they were or were not sexual is pretty much irrelevant to the main story. It’s what they were doing and saying out of bed that counts – against them.

      Answer: NO
      It should be completely obvious by now that the DOJ will do nothing to benefit President Trump or the American people. Put no trust in the DOJ, they are obfuscaters and part of the Deep State plot. Give up on it and give up especially on Jeff Sessions. If he was going to do something, it would have been done long before now.

    I’m probably missing the point, and if so someone can probably explain it to me, but….

    ….I don’t get Andrew McCarthy’s argument that the timeline of Simpson’s apparent flip-flopping about a human source proves that there was a human source who wasn’t Papadopoulos. Here’s what Simpson said to Congress in August 2017, about what Steele had told him in September 2016 :

    “Essentially, what [Christopher Steele] told me was [the FBI] had other intelligence about this matter from an internal Trump campaign source, and that — that they — my understanding was that they believed Chris at this point — that they believed Chris’s information might be credible because they had other intelligence that indicated the same thing, and one of those pieces of intelligence was a human source from inside the Trump campaign.”

    McCarthy’s argument seems to be that in August 2017, when he gave evidence to Congress, Simpson didn’t know all about Papadopoulos. But that doesn’t seem to be an inconsistency to me. The FBI knew about Papadopoulos back in July 2016 (or earlier) so there’s no reason why they couldn’t have told Steele in September 2016 that his dossier was corroborated by intelligence from a human source within the Trump campaign. Papadopoulos was within the Trump campaign, he allegedly told the Aussie diplomat about the Russians having Hils emails back in May 2016, and the Aussies allegedly had told the FBI by July. And by September, Papadop had met the mysterious Stefan Halper, who was presumably reporting to the FBI. Sure Papadopoulos wasn’t a knowing, willing FBI source, but he was, indirectly a source, he is human and he was in the Trump campaign.

    So assuming the FBI told Steele “yeah, we’ve got stuff that corroborates some of your story, from a human source within the Trump campaign” and assuming Steele told Simpson that, and assuming that’s what Simpson told Congress, where’s the inconsistency, and why do we need another human source ?

        I’ve seen a theory here that Helliary didn’t even use email for everything – that she simply gave access to her private server to anyone around the world who bribed her through her foundation, and let them review documents and data for themselves, through remote access.

        Many treepers are probably familiar with remote access, if an IT person at your company has ever asked you to allow control of your computer so they can fix it from the computer where they are. During remote access your screen appears on their screen, and they can make selections and work on it as if at your desk.

        Makes sense to me – no email trail to worry about.

    McCarthy is edging toward being unworthy of reading. He has been extremely slow to recognize that many of his former colleagues and the newer folks for whom his former colleagues are vouching are corrupt to the core. Anything he says or writes is tempered with this Boy Scout naivety to which he still clings. It does little good to comb through redacted messages at this point, where the redactions are either perpetrated to protect bad actors or to prevent hampering a criminal investigation of the persons whose names are redacted.

    That being said, McCarthy is likely correct that there was more than one source in the Trump campaign, but I would suspect that any sources were not moles, but instead unwitting because there were “assets” like Halper using campaign staffers to get or plant information. Also keep in mind that anyone having anything to do with the campaign was likely being spied upon electronically at some point.

      I agree and especially dislike the fact that he thinks Mueller is above reproach. Unfortunately even Rudy said that in his 1st interview with Hannity. What kind of spell has Mueller put on all these law enforcement people?? We the people are doomed if they always give the benefit of the doubt to people like Mueller and Comey.

    “Instead it’s more likely that particular campaign aides were targeted and dirtied-up by unofficial intelligence operators like Stefan Halper. Once those aides were given the appearance of being aligned with foreign enterprise, the FBI was then able to conduct surveillance and construct a narrative useful for their ‘insurance policy’.”

    Yup. More than one “mole.” But they’re not really “moles” per se. More like unwitting couriers tracking in crap on the soles of their shoes. And then there is Carter Page. Someone wrote “BUG ME” on a Post-It Note and slapped it on his back in 2013 and he’s been walking around with it there ever since. Poor dumb bastard.

    2 comments from reading some other remarks above from commenters.

    1. It’s very clear that the coupists are trying to intimidate those around Nunes. I think they know they can’t intimidate Nunes himself, so they’re working to try to scare people from helping Nunes unravel the coup. This would be why Nunes’ staff was recently targeted (think in NYT), and this would be why there are false rumors of “Nunes is under investigation!” being put out. They’re trying to get people to stop assisting Nunes now. But this is desperate stuff. The coup is scared.

    2. Dan Jones supposedly told Adam Waldman (go between with Russia oligarch) that Silicon Valley and Soros were funding the Dossier. Didn’t Obama head out to Silicon Valley shortly after he left office? And I am pretty sure that Obama is tied to a Soros project regarding Congress (can’t recall the specific initiative). So Obama may have been the “salesman” for the coup donors here.

    Yes. here’s the info. Obama visited Silicon Valley in March 2017. Less than two months after he left office. Was he begging for Fusion funding then, to aid the coup?

    https://www.bizjournals.com/sanjose/news/2017/03/13/obama-san-jose-silicon-valley-visit.html

    The visit was described as a “secret” one.

    I’m thinking this could have been coup fundraising for Fusion.

      Speaking of Silicon Valley, Bongino’s recent podcasts have mentioned some very interesting stuff about a Russian project to create a rival to Silicon Valley, with dots connected to Oleg V and to the Clintons who were up to their evil eyeballs investing in it. I forget the name of the initiative but it starts with S.

      Bongino said our gummint determined it was a national security threat to us, which could be part of why the Clintons are trying to smokescreen their involvement by attacking Trump for collusion when, yet again, their own collusion was real, deep, and wide….

    Question: Papadopoulos was contacted by Halper in September of 2016. This was 5 months AFTER Papadopoulos was allegedly given information on emails by Mifsud, 4 months AFTER Papadopoulos had his boozy bar night with Downer, and 2 months after the CI investigation had already started. Halper could not have planted information on Papadopoulos as a useful idiot in their meeting. Papadopoulos had already been compromised and the investigation was already up and running. The purpose of the Halper outreach to Papadopoulos must have just been to confirm or to verify the Downer report. So, it does not advance the vast conspiracy argument unless we can show that Halper and Mifsud were somehow acting in concert or were on the same team.

    I read McCarthy’s article. He starts the timeline for the beginning of the conspiracy with Strozk’s trip to London at the end of July, 2016. The conspiracy must have started months earlier.

    Papadopolous joined the Trump team on March 16, 2016. He was fed info on Russia having Hillary emails by Joseph Misfud on April 26, 2016. This is 37 days after Papadopolous joins the Trump team. In those 37 days, the Cabal identified Papadopolous, knew he was in London, planned to meet with him and plant the beginnings of “Muh Russia” in him through Joseph Misfud.

    How did the Cabal know Papadopolous was in London? How did they connect him with Misfud? What do you want to bet that there was a FISA 702 “About” query on George Papadopolous in March or early April 2016, before Admiral Rogers learned of the 702 abuse and shut it down in on April 18, 2016? The Cabal knew he was in London and arranged for their agent Misfud to meet with him and plant the beginnings of “Muh Russia.”

    When Admiral Rogers shut down the 702 “about” queries, the Cabal needed a FISA warrant to continue their surveillance of the Trump Campaign. They needed a US person who was the agent of a foreign government. Cater Page could be framed as the foreign agent. Papadopolous.was set up to support the collusion theory.

    After Misfud plants the Hillary email info with Papadopolous, the Cabal arranges for Papadopolous to meet Clinton pal Alexander Downer at a bar on May 16, 2016. Papadopolous is drunk and spills the beans about Hillary’s emails. News of this meeting eventually makes its way to the FBI and is used to “begin” the FBI counterintelligence investigation of Trump..

    In September, Stephan Halper meets with Papadopolous and tries to get him to repeat what he knows about Russia having Hillary emails. This was shortly before the Carter Page FISA warrant. Halper wanted to feed info back to the FBI confirming Papadopolous’ prior statement to Downer regarding knowledge of Russia having Hillary emails. However, Papadopolous told Halper he had no knowledge of Hillary emails. That must have disappointed the Cabal, because they would have loved including that confirmation in the FISA warrant application.

    I once suspected that Papadopolous was a Clinton plant in the Trump campaign. If that was the case, Papadopolous would have repeated the Hillary email story to Halper. Doing so would have helped get the FISA warrant against Carter Page. Papadopolous didn’t, so I now think he was just a patsy.

    The DoJ is refusing to identity the spy because the spy wasn’t really inside the Trump Campaign. Think about it- it helps the small group if they can sell the public on the idea that the Russian Collusion theory is being supported by an insider in the Trump Campaign- that is why Simpson floated this in his August 2017 testimony, and it is why Feinstein released the transcript- the Russian Collusion story was falling apart, so needed a new bulwark to support- voila, spy inside the Trump Campaign.

    However, Simpson already knew who the “spy inside the Trump Campaign” was- he knows this because he was part of the conspiracy. Simpson apparently had second thoughts after his testimony was publicly released and decided to try to float the theory that he was talking about Papadopoulos, but that theory has too many holes in it- like, for example, that it wasn’t known publicly in August 2017 about Papadopoulos and Downer’s bar romp. This is why Simpson finally decided to stick with his testimony- retracting it causes more problems than it solves for him.

    When it is finally revealed that Halper was the so-called spy, the connections between Halper, Steele, and Mifsud will seal the deal- it was all a constructed honey trap that even the none-too-bright Papadopoulos eventually figured out by September of 2016.
