President Trump Questions FBI and DOJ Campaign Surveillance and Spy Operations – Carter Page and George Papadopoulos…

Buried in paragraph 40 of the FBI/DOJ justification article presented by the New York Times on behalf of contributing editors James Comey, Sally Yates, Mary McCord, John Brennan and James Clapper, the oft-used intelligence propaganda outlet attempted to bury the lede:

The F.B.I. obtained phone records and other documents using national security letters — a secret type of subpoena — officials said. And at least one government informant met several times with Mr. Page and Mr. Papadopoulos, current and former officials said. That has become a politically contentious point, with Mr. Trump’s allies questioning whether the F.B.I. was spying on the Trump campaign or trying to entrap campaign officials.  (read more)

In essence what the Deep State apparatchik was/is doing is admitting they conducted a large-scale surveillance operation against their political opposition by weaponizing the most intrusive intelligence gathering capabilities of the federal government.  An admission they denied for the previous 18 months….

And somehow, we are supposed to be ok with this.  Well, that’s their story, and they’re sticking to it.  Ultimately they have no choice.  If the participating members don’t justify their endeavors there’s a strong likelihood of shiny new steel bracelets.

Oddly enough, the target of the corrupt intelligence enterprise is not too pleased:

… Go figure.

From the justification outline the conspiracy crew focused on using the national security apparatus to target: •Michael Flynn; according to the article under Flynn was under surveillance since 2015 because he took a trip to Russia; •Campaign and Delegate Manager Paul Manafor because he did business with Ukraine; and two unpaid low level staff “volunteers” •Carter Page and •George Papadopoulos.

Oddly, and damned sure not coincidentally, Carter Page was an FBI asset in March of 2016 and yet somehow by October the same year he was a foreign agent, acting on behalf of mother Russia, and deserving of a FISA Title-1 Surveillance Warrant to ensure every second of every move was tracked and monitored as if he was an activated terrorist en-route to the detonation site:

(Full Memo pdf)

In 2013 the U.S. Department of Justice, Southern District of New York, announced an indictment against a Russian Operative Evgeny Buryakov.  LINK HERE  In March of 2016 Buryakov pleaded GUILTY: Carter Page was an FBI cooperating asset in 2013, and remained the primary FBI witness through May of 2016 throughout the duration of the Buryakov case.

If Carter Page was an FBI asset and witness, responsible for the bust of a high level Russian agent in 2013, and remained so throughout the court case UP TO May of 2016, how the f**k it is possible that on October 21st, 2016, Carter Page is put under a FISA Title-1 surveillance warrant as an alleged Russian agent?

Conclusion:  He wasn’t.

The DOJ National Security Division and the FBI Counterintelligence Division, knew he wasn’t a Russian agent.  The DOJ-NSD and FBI  flat-out LIED to the FISA court.

Now, go back to the March 2016 DOJ Press Release of the guilty pleading for Evgeny Buryakov, announced from the New York office:

…”Preet Bharara, the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, and John P. Carlin, Assistant Attorney General for National Security, announced”…

Because “FISA Title-I” surveillance authority against a U.S. citizen is so serious (the U.S. government is essentially calling the target a spy), only a few people are authorized to even apply for such surveillance warrants.

One of the four people authorized to make such a filing is the Asst. Attorney General who is head of the National Security Division of the DOJ.  At the time that person was John P Carlin.  The same John P Carlin who worked with the FBI counterintelligence unit, conscripted Carter Page as an FBI asset/witness, gained a guilty plea, then turned around six months later accuses their star witness of being a Russian Spy?

Think about this?

Apply common sense.

Why?  Likely because the DOJ-National Security Division (DOJ-NSD) and FBI Counterintelligence needed to find a legal way to spy on the Trump campaign. The 2016 FISA Title 1 surveillance of former FBI employee Carter Page became that legal way. [“The Insurance Policy”]

In October of 2016, at approximately the same time the DOJ was making the FISA Court filing against Page, and successfully gaining the surveillance warrant, Asst. Attorney General  John P Carlin resigned as head of the DOJ-NSD.    –SEE HERE–  Did Carlin resign in protest? or, did Carlin resign knowing he too had served a larger purpose?

With John Carlin gone, immediately after admitting to FISA(702)(16)(17) search abuses, the surveillance application filed by the DOJ to the FISA Court was signed by Sally Yates.

Sally Yates previously denied the DOJ Inspector General any oversight over the DOJ National Security Division. {SEE HERE}  Huh,… funny that.

Responding to a 2015 request by the DOJ Office of Inspector General, Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates told the internal watchdog they cannot investigate the National Security Division.  That’s right, there was essentially no oversight on any activity happening inside the NSD.

In 2015 the OIG requested oversight and it was Sally Yates who responded with a lengthy 58-page legal explanation saying, essentially, ‘nope – not allowed.’ (PDF HERE) All of the DOJ is subject to oversight, except the NSD.

So where does this leave us?…

Occam’s Razor: The FISA Title I surveillance authority over Carter Page was cover, most likely retroactive cover, for the DOJ and FBI conducting surveillance on the Trump campaign.  Previous to the October 21st, 2016, FISA Warrant the FBI was limited to using illegal searches of FISA(702)(16)(17) FBI and NSA databases {see here}; and according to the New York Times: “National Security Letters”.

National Security Letters are a type of administrative subpoena designed to allow the FBI to access the records of people suspected of being foreign agents. Section 505 of the Patriot Act expanded the FBI’s ability to use these subpoenas: FBI agents now only have to state that the information sought is “relevant” to a national security investigation in order to obtain sensitive financial, communications and other personal records. The letters are issued by FBI field offices and are not subject to judicial oversight. Recipients of these letters are under a gag order. (link)

The DOJ-National Security Division and FBI Counterintelligence Unit didn’t care about Carter Page because to them he was a useful tool.  It wasn’t Page they needed, per se’, they just needed someone, anyone, who had contact with the Trump campaign that they could apply the label “foreign agent” upon.

How did they enhance that appearance?

Enter Stefan Halper.

Remember the Peter Strzok trip to London?

The source of John Brennan’s “Electronic Communication”, which initiated the July 31st, 2016, origination authority of the FBI Counterintelligence operation, 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.

[Stefan] Halper met campaign foreign policy adviser Carter Page at a July 2016 symposium held at Cambridge regarding the upcoming election, Page told TheDCNF. The pair remained in contact for several months. (link)

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.

Stefan Halper connects to the same circle of intelligence operatives Christopher Steele used for his sketchy Dossier construct. Halper’s role looks simple: make the low-level Trump campaign aides appear dirty… the CIA would relay that information to the FBI; and the FBI counterintelligence unit (Agent Peter Strzok) would take it from there.

The DOJ/FBI just needed someone they could position to gain the FISA “Title I” surveillance approval that would retroactively make all prior sketchy campaign surveillance legal.  Carter Page and George Papadopoulos checked the right boxes.

Page didn’t need to be a “plant” or a willing “participant”, he was carrying surveillance authority like an Ebola virus and transmitting it onto everyone he contacted. Both Page and Papadopoulos were useful for the corrupt intelligence apparatus because they could attach a label to them and justify their surveillance and monitoring.  Nothing more.

Clear enough?

Carter Page testified to the House Intelligence Committee that DOJ-FBI officials leaked his identity, his role in the Buryakov case, to the media.  This is confirmation from Page himself that he was an FBI asset and witness.

Stefan Halper’s role looks simple: make the low-level Trump campaign aides appear dirty… the CIA would relay that information to the FBI; and the FBI counterintelligence unit (Agent Peter Strzok) would take it from there.

Make sense now?…

    What is the process to get a National Security Letter? Who would be in charge of signing that document in the Obama Administration?

      Congress writes the rules; FBI fights oversight.

      “Since the first national security letter (NSL) statute was passed in 1986 and then dramatically expanded under the USA PATRIOT Act, the FBI has issued hundreds of thousands of such letters seeking the private telecommunications and financial records of Americans without any prior approval from courts. In addition to this immense investigatory power, NSL statutes also permit the FBI to unilaterally gag recipients and prevent them from criticizing such actions publicly. This combination of powers — to investigate and to silence — has coalesced to permit the FBI to wield enormous power and to operate without meaningful checks, far from the watchful eyes of the judicial branch.”

      The agents can write their own. An Oversight oversight one could drive garbage scow through. Thousands of ’em.

    I think by Monday afternoon, we will know exactly who the white hats are…….or if there are any white hats. I know dotting i’s and crossing T’s and just the right timing and stuff, but at some point, there is enough out there to trip over walking across a basketball court in the pitch black dark.

      When this is all over, I hope that Peter Strzok is “deceased” like Seth Conrad Rich, in an apparent robbery gone bad, where Rich’s expensive watch and bling were left, like his wallet with credit cards, on his person, at the crime scene.
      Seth was an innocent, but deluded youth working for the DNC.
      Strzok is a traitor, who shielded HRC at every turn, but was happy to fabricate evidence against Trump at every turn.
      Death is too good for Strzok.
      Strzok should go to a Federal Prison full of Krips, Bloods, and MS-13 gang members, where he can learn for the rest of his lifetime, the meaning of the term “biatch”


      • Newt Love says:

        That is, unless he can deliver McCabe, Comey, Clapper, Brennan, Lynch and several others, leading up to Obama.

        I will understand if there is a deal where Obama avoids prison, but his RICO involvement with subverting the US Constitution needs to be indicted, tried, and convicted. To avoid International scandal, I would understand leniency in the sentencing phase of BHO and HRC (The Art of the Deal), but the whole of the motions must be done “BY THE BOOK!”

    Now that we know this whole thing was most likely started as a CIA operation against Trump, the “podium gate” scandal, where it appeared that Hillary had a special podium built so that she could cheat during the debates, seems much more plausible. Those of us who were following that particular conspiracy theory at the time will recall that Hillary’s podium was specially built for her, presumably because she was short. But it seemed to have at least one unique feature that Trump’s podium did not have: The dashboard had a built-in electronic light, which lit up right before the debate started and went dark right after it ended. Where the CIA comes into play here is that they most likely fitted Hillary with special contact lenses, such that only she would be able to see the words illuminated in the light on her podium’s dashboard. In this way, someone off stage would have been able to coach her and/or send her timely zingers, fact, and figures throughout the debate.

    All of this seems far more plausible now that we know how much Trump was viewed as a threat by the intel community, and the lengths to which they were willing to go to ensure his defeat.

    Funny thing is, despite all the extra help that Hillary received, she still lost. Ha ha ha ha. I will never stop laughing about that one.

      Via the Title 1 Carter Page warrant, the Obama Admin had all of the communications (cellphone, text, email, et cetera) from everyone that Page communicated with, and everyone that they communicated with, and everyone that they communicated with.

      So, Manafort’s favorite Pizza joint had all of their communications captured, and delivered to Peter Strzok and his Merry Band of Traitors!

      So, Obama had everything: the campaign plans, the ad strategies and dialog about same; the campaign stops and the strategy for each, et cetera.

      HRC had more than a spy in the Trump Campaign, she and her staff had a steady feed of captured Trump Campaign communications to use to formulate her strategy to win.

      HRC lost her a$$ and the DNC’s everything!

      If a poker player could see their opponents’ hands, and read their minds’ internal dialog, would that player ever lose a poker game or Grand Championship?

      HRC had that same advantage, but PDJT beat her like a screen door in a Cat-5 Hurricane.

      How pathetic! HRC was completely incompetent!
      What kind of a President would she have been?

    “This is legislation that puts our own Justice Department above the law. When national security letters are issued, they allow federal agents to conduct any search on any American, no matter how extensive, how wide ranging, without ever going before a judge to prove the search is necessary. … If someone wants to know why their own Government has decided to go on a fishing expedition through every personal record or private document, through the library books you read, the phone calls you have made, the e-mails you have sent, this legislation gives people no rights to appeal the need for such a search in a court of law. No judge will hear your plea; no jury will hear your case. This is plain wrong. … We owe it to the Nation, we owe it to those who fought for our civil liberties, we owe it to the future and our children to make sure we craft the kind of legislation that would make us proud…”

    — Senator Barack Obama, December 2005

    From denial to justification. What happens when justification fails to?
    I’ll tell you what happens. It’s “save your own skin” time.
    We already know of those in the small group who’ve been cooperating.
    They are naming names and Huber is working his way up the food chain.

    Thank God for Russia and Putin. The Deplorables appreciate your assistance in draining the swamp. If both didn’t exist, the FBI would of have to invent them. Thanks Vlad. We owe you one. I know, after our next election, we’ll have more flexibility. Bwahahahaha

    Lisa Pages email said it all when she wrote: “POTUS wants to know everything we are doing.” More need not be said. No explainations required. Only tree, rope, and conspirators.

  10. I think we should look at the series of events in full.
    When did Fusion GPS hire Steele to look into Trump?
    Was that before Russia agents contacted Page?
    If so, is it possible that the sub-sources for Steele (who were Russians) told the Kremlin about Steele’s investigation?
    Would that have spurred Russia to contact Page?
    How did the Russians know about Page?
