Senator Ron Johnson Questions: “Sensitive Matters Team” – New Emails Show FBI and DOJ Discussing Dossier Briefing For CNN Release…

The footnotes in a letter from Senate Homeland Security Committee Chairman Ron Johnson (full pdf below) outline a series of previously unknown emails between top FBI and DOJ officials as they discuss the Steele Dossier and prepare for a release by CNN.

The emails show that hours before FBI Director James Comey briefed President-Elect Trump on the dossier, Comey’s chief-of-staff James Rybicki e-mailed staff that Director Comey “is coming into HQ briefly now for an update from the sensitive matter team.”

On January 8th, 2017, two days after the Comey briefing, former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe wrote an e-mail to top FBI officials (James Comey, James Rybicki, David Bowdich and Michael Kortan), with the subject: “Flood is coming.”

47 minutes later Andrew McCabe then emails across the street to Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates and her deputy assistant Matthew Axelrod.  Andrew McCabe uses the subject line “News” in his e-mail to alert the Main Justice officials.

The letter from Senator Johnson then goes on to outline how CNN reported breaking news of the dossier on January 10th, using the ‘hook’ created by a leak of the briefing Comey gave to president-elect Trump.  CNN headlined their report: “Intel chiefs presented Trump with claims of Russian efforts to compromise him.”  A few hours later, BuzzFeed News published the contents of the “Steele dossier.”

Within the letter Senator Johnson asks Director Chris Wray to provide a list of all members of the “sensitive matters team” referenced by James Rybicki.  Additionally, Johnson requests Wray to provide all details about how FBI officials “first learned that media outlets, including CNN, may have possessed the Steele dossier.”

From the footnotes we can see the emails were first obtained by the Justice Department Office of Inspector General (Michael Horowitz) and turned over to the Senate Homeland Security Committee.

What makes this interesting is the emails are: all post-election; all seemingly unrelated to any of the three known primary IG investigative inquiries; and all provided by the OIG to congress, without prior request (that we know of).  Much like the Page/Strzok text message release, this email release seems specifically intended to spur further congressional inquiry, and broaden the general public awareness.

Why would IG Horowitz send these to congress?  Well, there’s not much he can do with them.  All of the outlined participants/recipients are no longer within the DOJ or FBI except David Bowditch (now Asst. Director under Wray); however, they do provide an expanded awareness and understanding of the post-election ‘small group‘ activity.

Here’s the full letter:

          I think what is very interesting is to know how the conspirators reacted when BuzzFeed released the “dossier” and everybody except CNN laughed at it.

          The people at MSNBC etc. only took it seriously months later AFTER Schiff signaled the “dossier” was important to take seriously for pursuing RussiaGate.

            Also, what is the “sensitive matter” team? Comey, Brennan and Clapper? Or the small cross-Department cabal that Brennan created to manage RussiaGate? And is Rybicki only referring to the “pee memo” as the singular “sensitive matter?” Remember that first memo was the only one discussed between Comey and Trump–found out later.

        I’d like to see what he has before another SC is appointed.

              He writes military tribunals because PDJT issued an EO in Dec of 2018 that basically put the country in a state of emergency. When the country is in a state of emergency Martial Law can be implemented if need be and/or prosecution of government employees can be handled by military tribunals. At least that was my understanding. I could be wrong.

                http://www.adversity.net/Terms_Definitions/TERMS/Nuremberg_Defense.htm

                AG Jeff Sessions was not hired to prosecute the CABAL . THAT ROLE will become that of the Military JAG corp .

                Sessions was picked to unravel everything Obama ever did as a president not eligible .

                ANYTHING he signed either EO or laws he signed are NOT CONSTITUTIONAL as he was never president .

                Sessions must navigate the Trump administrations insurgency asymmetrical war against the SHADOW GOVERNMENT and DEEP STATE through the many usurpation of the Obama CABAL .

                Sessions and Trumps perceived distance is so that HISTORY will show they both acted by the letter of the law .

                FACT …anyone who Obama appointed and the UNIPARTY confirmed is a rogue element of the enemy domestic .

                Including the entire breadth of the Judicial Branch and SCOTUS !!

                The people trust the Military . Q tells us to look at the TIMING !!

                When the kids are out for Summer Recess and out of concentrated reach of the SATANIC CULT in the communist schools the STORM BEGINS !!

                Consider the coming GITMO Military full tribunals and stateside Military Courts Martial run justice system as a modern NUREMBERG trials of a modern NAZI REGIME that had taken over America from within .

                During the Nuremberg trials many in the NAZI party claimed as their defense they were simply following orders during war time .

                THIS TIME the DEEP STATE agents would claim they are not guilty because Obama was NEVER a REAL PRESIDENT and any law he had a hand in or his agents was invalid .

                THAT IS WHAT SESSIONS IS fixing !!

                The enemy domestic our constitution was designed to prevent and bring justice to .

                Following the precedence of president Lincoln during the insurrection against the constitution and federal authority for REBELLION .

                Article 1 section 9 allows for suspension of Habeas Corpus during Martial Law for REBELLION against the constitution .

                Lincoln asserted that congress did NOT need to declare WAR on the Southern secessionist and that it was a REBELLION .

                OPERATION CROSSFIRE HURRICANE will be presented as a SEDITION REBELLION of a duly elected President . President Trump will follow the precedence set by President Lincoln including the declaration of Martial law and suspension of Habaes Corpus for those enemy domestic captured by our US Military in OPERATION AMERICAN FREEDOM .

                Coming soon as the pretext will be presented in the un-REDACTED Nunez memo . What EO has president Trump signed but as yet unreleased in “follow the pen ” ?

                The Presidents proclamation from May 1 2018 clearly defines those who have failed their oath of office in the Judicial and Legislative branches of the SHADOW GOVERNMENT .

                Sessions job is to unravel and navigate so that during these trials the enemy domestic cannot offer as defense that Obama was NEVER a real president and therefore they broke no laws .

                HAD the Trump administration attempted to use laws that OBAMA and the UNIPARTY CABAL had changed the claim would be VALID .

                You can’t be tried twice for the same crime !!

                THIS IS THE TRUE ROLE OF SESSIONS .

                trust SESSIONS but learn his true role in this .

          Seriously? You think a Fox News opinion commentator is the right person to conduct an investigation? I can agree with much of her opinions, but we don’t need to make matters worse by replacing one partisan investigation with another. The frustration that is making the natives restless is , ironically, the result of the clamped down, leakless work of Huber and Horowitz. If we heard more from them before the axe drops that would be a reason to worry.

    I think the impatience that President Trump feels and the frustration many of us feel is that “nobody has been charged and arrested on anything yet in over 1 1/2 years!”

    Trump put in a “demand yesterday” to get things moving and to see these swamp people arrested.”

    Now , as we all know, there generally is long process between after people are arrested before the trial begins, in some cases months and years, so arrest criminals already and if you need more time to start the trial , so be it. Come on Jeff. 😉

    That is the problem many have with Sessions, We don’t get the impression he is biting at the bit to arrest people that have committed crimes in the past and are continuing to commit crimes. Seems the President and his talking-heads are fed up with all this slow-walking process too.

    If Mueller was actually a Bulldog and very Pro Trump … I believe Mueller would have made a good AG and lots of action and arrests would have been made, you think? 🙂

    Too bad Mueller is one of the “bush gang” and hates Trump like all the other never-trumpers.

And our problems actually started long before Clinton, although he and George H.W.Bush brought America to new lows (don’t forget that Bush signed the U.S. on to Agenda 21 with the U.N. which was a major move down the path of destruction for America).

          Clarification: The infiltration of communism (“leftism”/”progressivism”/”liberalism”/etc.) into America dates back to the communist revolution. The progressives really got going during the Woodrow Wilson period, but the four administrations of FDR put communist infiltration on steroids.

          FDR picked as his second VP for his third presidential term a communist from Iowa: Henry Wallace, who was a heartbeat from the Oval Office from 1941 to 1945

          Harry Truman was elected on the fourth term ticket of FDR and started serving in 1945, when he also became president on FDR’s death.

          John Nance Garner from Texas had been FDR’s VP from 1933 to 1941, but he said that the vice presidency wasn’t worth a bucket of warm piss, and didn’t want to run again — which is how we ended up with Wallace.

          FDR’s chief advisor, Henry Hopkins, who lived in The White House, has only relatively recently been revealed to have been a communist — or at least a dedicated sympathizer.

          Robert Oppenheimer, the lead scientist on the Manhattan Project, was a communist sympathizer.

          The so-called (by the communists) “witch hunts” during the 1950s indeed discovered dozens of traitors and communist sleepers in the U.S. government. The Rosenbergs are the ones everyone remembers.

          They were indeed guilty of giving America’s hydrogen bomb secrets to the Soviets, and fried for it.

          They got what Barry Soetoro and the Clintons richly deserve — along with a whole host of marxists infesting Washington today.

          The communists take the long view. They have been subverting America for 100 years.

          Their most effective avenue for capturing all of America’s institutions has turned out to be feminism, which was born with adoption of the 19th Amendment.

          Feminism blossomed in the 1960s with what communists termed the “sexual revolution” — was made possible in 1960 by the introduction of The Pill. The Pill is the little invention that so effectively decoupled sex from marriage — and wrecked the nuclear family.

          Communists, who dominated the Democrat Party by 1968 and who captured it in 1972, in time to nominate McGovern, have played identify politics since day one.

          With all of the talk about the importance of certain special interest groups, e.g., hispanics, blacks, homosexuals, etc., there is usually little to no discussion about the largest special interest group, the one which sustains the Democrat Party: UNMARRIED WOMEN.

          Demographics rule. America’s women outnumber men by a percentage of 53 to 47.

          Why is this incredible fact never discussed?: A MAJORITY OF WOMEN HAVE VOTED DEMOCRAT IN EVERY SINGLE U.S. PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION SINCE 1980.

          This is the elephant in the room of American politics.

          Why do a majority of women consistently vote Democrat?

          Simple! Unmarried women vote Democrat to get the goodies — the state and federal freebies that nearly all single women need to live single, i.e., welfare, food stamps, subsidized housing, subsidized everything. (Statistics say that 80 percent of divorces are initiated by women, so there much be a clear and lasting financial incentive for them to do so! Otherwise a majority would seek marriage for financial support.)

          Because single women are so permanently desperate for the government goodies, we get increasingly more stupendously left-wing Democrat officeholders. The Democrat Party essentially can shoehorn in any legislation that achieves the communist goal of breaking down American society because they know that the single women voting bloc is solid — to the tune of 80-95 percent of single women (PARTICULARLY IN CITIES) voting Democrat.

          Realize the importance of this! Eighty percent of married women tend to vote the way their husbands vote, and men tend to vote Republican. In fact, if you look at the Presidential elections since 1980, a majority of men voted GOP in every single election, except slight in a majority for obama in his first election, although voter fraud probably accounts for this discrepancy.

          Had there been no 19th Amendment, there would have been no Jimmy Carter, no Bill Clinton, no Barry “Obama” Soetoro in The Oval Office — because MEN VOTE GOP.

          Leveraging the unmarried women voter bloc, communists have subverted all of America’s important institutions, including unions (particularly the teachers’ union), secondary school systems, universities, film community, museums community, music industry, press, judiciary, state legislatures, Congress, Democrat Party, and even, to differing extents, the churches, military, and corporate America.

          The solution to America’s problems is either jack up the marriage rate or overturn the 19th Amendment.

            northwoods, This is very well written and factual. As a female myself, I have been reading for the last 10 years about the great gulf between the voting tendencies of the married versus the unmarried women, it is not an unknown phenomenon, and one which – along with the destruction of the nuclear family – the Communists used intentionally as it is even included in their written goals. The “Racism” claim comes in a distant second.

            Also, we have long known that McCarthy was absolutely correct, but was ridiculed (another Communist technique, “personalize,” “ridicule”). Unfortunately, he vastly understated the problem, and it has metastasized since.

            HOWEVER: I still agree with the Meme, the Zero pumped up the division in the country in every respect, War on Republicans, War on White Males, War on statues of Civil War Veterans, War on Truth, War on Christianity, War on Israel, War on Police, War on the Military, War on the Flag, and War on the Constitution. The level of strife we are currently undergoing in this country would never have happened had he not stolen the 2012 election by fraud (no matter WHAT you think of Romney he could not have caused this much damage had he tried 24/7).

If this is such a republic shattering tragedy then does anyone expect General Kelley to do anything but protect continued government secrecy? Trump should immediately declassify all the fisa applications on page and others involved, if any, and declassify all other evidence related to this and immediately release all of it for the public to see. If this is as republic threatening as all seem to say it is then what bullshit government excuse could possibly outweigh the public’s right to know? Until Trump did classifies all and releases all to the public then this it is just a DC shit show for everyone to get tv time and tweet time, a shit show that will result in continued government secrecy and corruption for generations to come.

    On the other hand, we have a case of “dueling investigations; Mueller vs. IG/Huber. BOTH are under DOJ. Therefore, both are SUPPOSED to follow DOJ rules, guidelines, etc.
    Many doj investigations result in no indictments; some activity APPEARS illegal, but after investigation is found to be perfectly legal. IF prosecutors comment to press about such an investigation, name the ‘target’ or give ANY details, it could wrongly besmirch the reputation of people innocent of any crime. This is the rationale for “not commenting on, or even aknowledging the EXISTENCE of an investigation.
    Now, in both investigations, that bird has flown.
    Mueller investigation, front page story, when Mueller appointed.
    And, with formal letters from Congresd to DOJ, eventually, Sessions was forced to announce bringing in Huber.
    Never the less, the basic rule, i.e. no comment on ongoing investigation, was not suspended, nor the underlieing rationale.
    One of the corruptions of the DOJ, over many years, was Prosecutors ignoring/abusing this rule, using “strategic leaking”, to put pressure on “subjects” by ‘outing’ their names to the press. The Mueller team is staffed with some of the worst offenders.
    Example; Gen. Flynn, bankrupted by legal fees, (an additional abusive practice) and having his son threatened with prosecution, ‘caves’ and pleads guilty. Prosecutors tell him “we will ‘drop charges’ against son, and hold off on sentencing, if you sign this document agreeing to co-operate. However, if you fail to co-operate, or we catch you lieing, the agreement is void, we will go after son, ask for maximum sentence, etc.
    Flynn agrees, and signs agreement.
    They say “O.k., now tell us ANYTHING you know, about ANY collusion between ANYONE in campaign, and Russia”.
    And Flynn says “O.k., I don’t know ANYTHING about ANY collusion with russia, by anyone in campaign.”
    One of the prosecutors steps outside, calls his friendly NYT reporter, and says “unofficialy, (its understood) you can report that Flynn is FULLY co-operating with the Mueller investigation”
    Technically true, but actually meaningless.
    Implies a lot, to general public, not really following, or leftist partisans.
    Ah ha! Plead guilty, and is now co-operating! There WAS collusion with Russia!
    And, Mueller team has been doing such disengenous leaking all along.
    Meanwhile, back at the ranch, the OTHER investigation, (remember ‘dueling’ investigations) is doing it ‘right’, according to the rules. NOTHING is leaking about the investigation, and even aknowledging there IS an investigation only when no choice.
    So, PERCEPTION is that one side is scoring ‘points’, while other side is doing nothing.
    Hopefully,one of the results of the big ugly, will be a return to the rule of law, which will include a reigninin of these prosecutorial misconduct behaviors which had grown gradually more rampant ( boiling frog) for many years.
    Remember when Judge ordered prosecutors to undergo ethics training?
    Not providing defence with exculpatory evidence, maliscious prosecutions, etc. were all part of the package, and current Mueller team is packed with the worst abusers. Hopefully, they will ALL be disbarred, to say nothing of any incarceration, which will help to re-establish ethical standards.
    Anyway, this is why it looks like Muellrr team is doing things, while other side is impotent.
    ONE investigation, Mueller.has thrown all the rules out the window, other is adhering to the letter of rules and law.
    Perception vs. reality.

    May be off topic, but noticed comments on another thread, criticising ingraham in general, and press in general, for refering to President Trump as “Trump”.
    I first noticed this during President Reagans terms, then saw explanation.
    Its a “tradition”, that goes back to when type was actually set by hand.
    “President” is used in headline, and again the FIRST time, in article. After that, then Presidents last name only.
    So, “President Reagan fired air traffic controllers today. After, Reagan played 18 holes of golf.” as an example.
    Plenty of Obummer supporters complained of same thing, when he was in. Anyway, thats the explanation, and the tradition extends to broadcast media, where TIME is the issue, and the 1/2 second to say President every time they refer to the president, eats into their segment.

    What we have in the world’s oldest democracy is the police and national security organs have usurped law and democratic tradition by refusing to provide evidence of surveillance authorization. It is the same as refusing to let the accused see his accuser:

    “The United States Supreme Court has cited Acts of the Apostles 25:16, which reports the Roman governor Porcius Festus, discussing the proper treatment of his prisoner Paul: “It is not the manner of the Romans to deliver any man up to die before the accused has met his accusers face-to-face, and has been given a chance to defend himself against the charges.” It is also cited in Shakespeare’s Richard II, Blackstone’s treatises, and statutes….”

    The actions of the Obama Administrations were not only illegal but went against Western political tradition. See my long post on the CTH “About Us” on the first page:

    FISA Warrant Surveillance on Trump a Violation of Magna Carta, Privacy, and Democracy

    The essence of Democracy is the fundamental Human Right of Privacy from the State.

    The Right to Privacy is enshrined in the Magna Carta, a novel agreement where the King was permitted the right to rule but denied the right to intrude into the privacy of his loyal Knights. This political arrangement between Lord and Governed became the essence of Democracy in Europe, with the end result being the UK Parliament, with its wonderful embrace of democratic debate without fear of surveillance and reprisal from the State. America followed this Western notion of a political arrangement between Right vs Might, with a “right to privacy considered the fundamental human right” in the US Declaration of Independence “Right to Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.” We can all agree with the “Common Sense” of Thomas Paine that there can be no Liberty without Privacy just as the Colonial American Revolutionists proclaimed, “Give me Liberty, or give me Death.”

      First, I disagree with only one word in your post. While it might have been a slip of the brain it’s important to correct if not. America is NOT and was never intended to be a democracy. It is a Constitutional Republic. The founding father’s knew quite well the dangers of democracy.

      And, if anyone is interested, we could wipe all this corruption, graft, waste etc away in short order with relatively few people. We don’t have to wait for someone else, a hero or anyone currently in ‘government’ to rise up and save us.

      We just need to put our rightful government, the one we’re promised in all three constitutions back into place.

    I may be splitting hairs here but read Senator Johnson’s letter again and the emails SD has highlighted. Many posts here (as well as the title of the post) refer to “matters” in the plural. But the emails are all singular – “THE SENSITIVE MATTER” “THE SENSITIVE STORY” “THE SENSITIVE REPORTING.” In this sense “Sensitive” is the code word for their written communication (Substitute “Crossfire Hurricane” for “Sensitive” and you will see what I mean). Organizations oft times have standing committees that get named – in this instance this wasn’t a group dedicated to various sensitive matters. It was a group dedicated to ONE sensitive matter – so sensitive they came up with the brilliant code word “sensitive.”

If that doesn’t happen, then this whole investigation will be considered a political witch hunt designed to discredit the Mueller probe. Then they will decide it was Trump’s dictatorial power grab, and then things will really get ugly. By ugly, I’m picturing Ferguson style activities nationwide. I think it’s that serious.

      It’s not an “either/or” situation at all and you insult the intelligence of many by saying it is. I believe President Trump is a man who has been touched by a Divine hand to lead our country during this particular time in history. He is fighting against all odds and he’s alone. He’s very intelligent and competent but he’s not God. I refuse to set myself up for disappointment by idolizing him or exaggerating his abilities as though he is some kind of all-seeing, all-knowing phenomenon. That would be unfair to him AND me. He has already proven to be the most effective president in our history even if he fails to drain the swamp and Sessions turns out to be a black hat. It IS possible to support him 100% without having what I view as unrealistic expectations. If it turns out like a John Wayne movie in the end where all the bad guys lose, I will thank PDJT but glorify only one person-the Lord.

    *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…
    According to a source with knowledge of the meeting, Halper asked Papadopoulos: “George, you know about hacking the emails from Russia, right?”
    Halper had previously invited Carter Page to attend a July 2016 symposium held at Cambridge regarding the upcoming election
    Halper “offered to help the campaign” but did not mention the Papadopoulos meeting to the second staffer – nor the staffer meeting to Papadopoulos.
    Curiously, despite the offers of campaign help, on November 3, 2016, Halper publicly stated that Clinton would be the best option for US-UK relations.”

    Folks this is not spying, this was entrapment/attempted SET-UP!

    When they didn’t get (Page and Papadopoulos) what they wanted there, they brought it back to U.S: TTower meeting, Sam Clovis, putting the screws to Cambridge Analytica until the pink haired guy finally said it may be possible that Russia could have used something like it, knowing that when the three big media companies appeared before the Senate Committee, Senator Blunt concluded: the vote was not altered. And, last week, the attempt to set-up Nunes and Gowdy, with the releasing of information that they were to receive in the meeting they did not attend.

    “This case demonstrates the consequences that result when those charged with protecting our nation’s secrets violate the trust placed in them by the American people,” Randall Coleman, assistant director of the FBI’s counterintelligence division, said.
    But Mascheroni, who was born in Argentina and became a naturalized U.S. citizen, no longer considered himself American. “I’m not an American anymore,” he said. “That is it.”
    After his arrival in the early 1960s to get a doctorate at the University of California at Berkeley, he signed up with Los Alamos National Laboratory in 1979. He was dismissed in the late 1980s amid allegations he was spying for Argentina, which he vehemently denied.” (credit WaPo)

    2) A team of senior prosecutors are looking at the different issues. These prosecutors report directly to the AG or AAG. These investigations are overseen by Huber.
    3) A grand jury can be impaneled anywhere, not just where the activities took place.
    4) If Huber declines to prosecute a certain matter, Sessions can appoint an SC.
    5) The IG and senior prosecutors are working together, not separately.
    This is far bigger, with a lot more manpower, than anyone realizes. Also add in the fact that they are also looking at their actions after getting fired, they are connecting a lot more dots involving a lot more people than we can imagine.
