The Maltese Fulcrum – Dan Bongino Discusses Latest Developments in Spygate…

Fox News Contributor Dan Bongino discusses the latest developments in the ongoing Spygate scandal.  The focus of attention is now upon Joseph Misfud:

In the shifting narratives of the Trump-Russia probe, a Maltese academic named Joseph Mifsud has remained a linchpin regarding claims of collusion. He is the professor who allegedly told Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos that the Russians had emails related to the Clinton campaign.  (more)

    Why do people assume Papadopoulos isn’t intricately involved with sting? Everyone assumes he wasn’t. He’s still a free man, just like Carter Page who I also think is suspect. He spied once for the FBI, why not again? He hasn’t been arrested either. Carter Page was at the meeting in Cambridge in July 2016 with Halper, Steele and Dearlove.

      The story with Papadopoulos just doesn’t add up for various reasons.
      Downer and Mifsud both stated repeatedly that Papadopoulos never mentioned anything about Russia having damaging emails as recently as a couple of weeks ago.

      The only time the charge of Russia having Clinton emails comes up is in the FBI interview he had. What gives?

      Not even corrupted Schiff could corroborate that email story. So is this one similar to the Flynn case where notes were changed after the fact? What about Mueller?

      If Mifsud was a Russian spy or not why not one interview with the FBI or Mueller for that matter?

      Hopefully Papadopoulos was not another plant or worse just a liar making shit up. After all he wanted a ‘paid’ campaign role that was denied by DT and his team so there’s that.

      Papadopoulos is a sketchy and maybe a shady guy trying to brag or making himself more important than he really is. Whatever the case may be – seeking the limelight in that way is just wrong on so many levels.

        Great minds……..

        There are red flags about this within the FBI indictment even with Papadop admitting to erroneous statements to the FBI about timeline events.

        Page 4, paragraph 8 –
        [1] Following Papadop 24th March 2016 meeting with Misfud, Papadop emails campaign advisor and describes Misfud as his “good friend”. This is a guy Papadop has apparently just met for the first time.
        [2] Papadop describes the Russian female as “Putin’s niece”. In fairness this could be Misfud BSing and also Papadop. Misfud denies saying it was Putin’s niece.
        [3] Papadop states within same email to campaign advisor that he was introduced to the Russian Ambassador in London. Seems the inference by Papadop is the Rus Amb was also at the meeting.

        These highly misleading statements from Papadop to campaign are March 2016, well before any April 2016 discussion suggesting missing emails etc.

Defendant PAPADOPOULOS acknowledged that the professor had told him about the Russians possessing “dirt” on then-candidate Hillary Clinton in the form of “thousands of emails,” but stated multiple times that he learned that information prior to joining the Campaign. In truth and in fact, however, defendant PAPADOPOULOS learned he would be an advisor to the Campaign in early March, and met the professor on or about March 14, 2016; the professor only took interest in defendant PAPADOPOULOS because of his status with the Campaign; and the professor told defendant PAPADOPOULOS about the “thousands of emails” on or about April 26, 2016, when defendant PAPADOPOULOS had been a foreign policy adviser to the Campaign for over a month.”

      I agree. Think about it, even though those FBI “contractors” were misusing 702’s, they likely were doing a quick dive on all(at least) republican primary candidates. But all those candidates have been “vetted” in the political wars as they all have had lots of op research done on them. But two were rank newcomers and, in their own ways could be a major disruption.We know Trump was perceived that way, but Dr Carson was similar, in that he threatened the Demo’s hold on the Blacks. I wanted Ben to be VP to Trump. Demos would be bananas! So, Papadoupolous was on Carson’s campaign, and immediately when that rapped up he joined the London Centre of International Law Practice(LCILP) in Feb 2016. He received a big fancy title, but within 6 weeks he becomes a Foreign policy adviser on Trump’s campaign. Then 6 weeks later he has the infamous meeting with Mifsud! PAPA was one of the very few people employed at the LCILP, along with Stephan Halper, who joined it sometime in the fall of 2015!! Halper and Mifsud traveled in the same circles and probably knew each other.
      I believe PAPA was an embed in Carson’s campaign, but needed to be prettied up so as to join Trump’s campaign. Notice he was first to be charged(Oct 2017 just before Flynn 6 weeks later) so as to take him off the airways — no comment due to investigation, and BS lying to FBI. Not sentenced yet, and I believe it will be dropped or a 3 month suspended sentence, after which it will be expunged from his record. Mueller needed a quick “win” with somebody with “Russian” received rumors from Mifsud (a supposed Russian agent by some, but really MI6 asset- or maybe even a double agent. Remember, both Halper and Mifsud have “vanished.” I also believe wacky, and dumb acting (and not charged) Carter Page is also a FBI/CIA asset. It all makes sense to me.

        Also, I think there was a FISA warrant attempt on PAPA after his Mifsud meeting ( the first, and not on Page), but it was rejected – too thin and unbelievable. So, they went with the more experience informant (SPY) Carter Page who had extensive professional Russian contacts over the years, and didn’t mind being a “Fall guy” because he knew every thing regarding him was false and made up, so he’d never be prosecuted!! And they used the doggy dossier to solve the “thinish issue.” And they became panicked in late Oct 2016 when the unthinkable looked possible. Any one who followed the LA Times tracking poll would have seen the writing on the wall ( Trump was up starting on Sept 12, was tied Oct 12 thru 26, and then pulled ahead till Comey announced “no issue” with Wiener e-mails on Nov 6th, and Trump then saw a small decline).

    • See “IMPORTANT- Mueller and P-Dop: Revisiting the Wire” Tracy Beanz posted 06/02/18 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S0eJc1n7n1I&t=7s

      Popadopoulos was secretly arrested on 07/27/18 and whisked into court the following day. His case was under seal, and we didn’t learn about his arrest until October 2018.

      As a cooperating witnesss for the Mueller investigation, Papadopoulos consented to wearing a wire, but he was specifically PROHIBITED from having any contact with anyone within the Trump campaign or administration. So,Tracy asks “WHO was he grabbing dirt on?”

      My answer: JOSEPH MIFSUD

      See “The Papadopoulos Case Needs a Closer Look” Andrew McCarthy “National Review” 06/02/18

      “Papadopoulos ends up pleading guilty to a minor false-statements charge — one that is convoluted and, in the scheme of things, TRIVIAL In essence, Papadopoulos is said to have lied about the timing and scope of his contact with the Maltese academic JOSEPH MIFSUD. (Emphasis mine)

      “Mueller, Rhee & Co. allege that Papadopoulos falsely claimed that the contacts started before he joined the Trump campaign. It turns out that they started on March 14, 2016; this was some time after he “learned he would be a foreign policy advisor for the campaign” (page 3, paragraph 4) but a week before the campaign’s March 21 announcement that he was a campaign “policy advisor” (page 4, paragraph 6).”

      My question: Who got to Joseph Mifsud first? The Mueller team, the Trump Administration CIA headed by Mike Pompeo? MI6? The “Russians?”

      All we know for sure is that he appears to have “disappeared.” Hm.

      My guess: There is more than one reason why now-Secretary of State Pompeo wears that Cheshire Cat grin, and why he and the guy he works for evidently have such credibility with the North Koreans.

      Also, who introduced Papadop to the Trump campaign? I know he had previously been on the Carson campaign, but if he was living in London.. how does one become “on” someones campaign? This just seems a little fishy to me from the beginning.

      Reading though the FBI charges below, seems to me pretty flimsy evidence if all they have is his timing and a few words that are in dispute.

      I can see it as a set up by Mifsud, and/or someone looking to advance his worth with the Campaign. The fact that the Russians and dirt on Hillary were used as a bait, sounds very similar to the tactics used by those trying to meet with Don Jr at Trump tower, too.

    Likely the small group knew everything Mifsud was doing and couldn’t give a darn. He and Halper seem like birds of a feather. It took months to interview Papadoc. I would imagine Papadoc was charged because he wouldn’t “compose” for Mueller.

I find it difficult to believe that there would be an obvious smoking gun in the Pres. Daily Brief). The “insurance policy” was for, if Trump won (most thought next to impossible) then they would drive Trump from office by any means possible, or at least cripple his agenda — then Obama who hadn’t left town would ride to the rescue and run again in 2020. You say he can’t? But the constitutional amendment only prohibits a third CONSECUTIVE term. He would obviously be the first to test this. Then another 8 years (or more) by their savior Obama (and I will say it — the ANTI-Christ. Two thousand years from Christ Crucifixion will be 2030).

    This tangled web of deception has many authors. The right hand spider “thinks” he knows what the left hand spider is up to and goes about misleading the left hand spider while the spider looking down on the web distracts them both by sending in a mole spider who thinks his mission is one thing, but his mission is actually to confuse the right hand spider and the left hand spider and cause them both to think the mole spider is the ally of each of them. Soon enough, the web is a tangle of barbed wire covering the no-man’s land between the trenches of the various entities which are the deep state and everyone is suspect and they are all to blame. So Clapper quacks and Comey walks like a duck and Brennan tweets and FISA fumes and Rodenstein tries to box his way out of his paper bag and the MSM acts as if it knows what game is being played and “covers up” everything because it understands nothing. Meanwhile, every loose thread that is pulled eventually leads back to collusion by the DemonizingRats and their ham-handed scheme to castrate Trump.

    In Watergate, a total naif by the name of Alexander Butterfield mentioned the Oval Office taping machines to the Senate investigators. Butterfield naturally assumed they were aware of it. The rest is history.

    There will not be any tapes. No smoking guns in this mess. What we are witnessing is just how much of a fluster-cluck this whole “deep state” really is. Every major player on the deep state basketball team thinks he is the center and the most important person on the court who believes he alone needs guarding by the rest of the team. Meanwhile, every other player on the team is playing his own game of being too smart by half.

    Senator Mark Warner (63) is viewing the dropping bodies of geriatrics in his party and he is plotting his way to the nomination for POTUS. Ditto Terry McAuliffe (61) of Virginia. Warner is inside the deep state aligning the players for his ascendancy. McAuliffe is on the outside developing his own Trotskyite Clinton-heavy alliance with the deep state. There will be blood.

    Trump has lived his adult life successfully dealing with the sewer-swamp that is the turf of the “deep state” predators his experience has educated Trump to have a swamp rat’s eye view of how to out play them. The swamp can not be drained any more than the socialist state will lead to Utopia.

    Trump has a love affair with power and he is “the office of the president” which means he only lives up to his own expectations. His image of the office is of him in the office. When Trump looks over his shoulder while leading and finds no one there, he puts someone there. Generals need captains and colonels who understand the mission and dedicate themselves to it. Trump is not conceding the war to the habits of the establishment and their intransigent trench warfare.

    The media simply can not understand Trump. They are too blinded by their own “vision” of what Trump is supposed to be instead of who and what he is. This same myopia permeates the establishment and the deep state and all of the in-bred, bad gene disorders that go along with being an avowed statist.

  9. I hate to dampen peoples spirit, but please stop massaging our Schadenfraude by talking about Obama going to prison. Obama CANNOT go to prison for anything he did. He could have been impeached, but Constitutionally that is ALL. As CIC he can demand that anybody, anytime, anywhere can be spied upon and there IS NO LEGAL RECOURSE. He can ONLY be impeached and there simply was never a Congress with the moral turpitude to impeach the first ‘Black’ President of the United States. His minions however, have no such protection. And neither by the way does Mrs. Clinton…because she lost the most rigged race in American History. As for Obama all that can be done is to destroy his legacy for all of history. I believe that will be done. 😀

    On a side note: Does anyone else wish that Sundance would write a spy novel? All of this intrigue is so fascinating and one way to get it out to the masses would be a well-written ‘fiction’ novel that is based entirely on this event: with the names changed to protect the ‘innocent’ of course! I’d buy it! Consider this my pre-order submission Sundance.

      Impeachment is the sole remedy for treason, and other high crimes and misdemeanors, while a president is in office, but does not immunize ex-presidents for those same crimes post term. Besides, it appears Obama may have continued after leaving office as a coconspirator in abuse of law enforcement and intelligence processes for political purposes, subversive spying operations, treasonous dealings with foreign countries, all to retain some appearance of power, with which to enable the continuation of pay to play schemes with those foreign governments. Susan Rice emailed herself on the way out recording her presidential instructions for what she worried were crimes. Immediately thereafter, the Flynn trap was sprung, Comey wrote his memos, then leaked them, DiFi resigned her gang of eight role and raised $50M to continue Fusion GPS’s subversive work (and who knows what other contractors & subs), Warner, her replacement, extensively texted Deripaska’s lawyer trying to get a private meeting with Steele, while being surveiled. Strzok texted his concern that his conspiracy leaders were moving too fast, Page agonized about getting out (alas, Lisa, too late).

      But Obama has zero executive ability, approaching things as an excellent listener, and one who can make a speech. He was never the ringleader of this, but was pushed along by the world class political crime machine assembled by the Clintons, once they’d crushed Sanders et al.

        Exactly, Dopplar. The framers knew human nature well enough to know that somewhere down the road there was a realistic possibility an “ambitious man” could gain the presidency, then commit crimes under the cover of the office. Impeachment, for a sitting president, was added to the Constitution as the remedy for such an event.

        The flip side was that they also knew other “ambitious men” could invoke legal avenues against the president, without just cause, to force removal or to impede policy/legislation they disagreed with. The impeachment process isn’t easy for that reason, but it also protects the president from frivolous/politically-motivated lawsuits/arrest by corrupt officials. 

        The framers also made it clear that “no one is above the law” and specifically stated that included the president. Charges may be brought after impeachment is upheld by the Senate or after leaving office, for crimes known prior to leaving office, for crimes not discovered or committed after leaving office. The president never has the right or authority to commit crimes, no matter when it happens. You’re right: He is protected from charges, other than impeachment, only during his presidency. 

        For example: Nixon wasn’t removed through impeachment, but was still pardoned by Ford. Ford had no reason to pardon him, if charges couldn’t have been brought for criminal activity during his presidency, and apparently, there was movement toward that possibility. Just because it’s never happened doesn’t mean the temporary protections of the office permanently removes liability for any crimes committed. 

        Maybe if a few past presidents (and others) had been held accountable, we wouldn’t be in the mess we’re in now. True legal and moral justice exists only when there’s equal justice for all.

            Yes, but “misdemeanors” covers a lot more than just parking tickets. For Constitutional purposes, it includes serious crimes, beyond the specialized high crime definition you cited above. The distinctions are important, as they apply to the presidency, and other government offices, but that doesn’t negate the fact that the president still doesn’t have the authority to commit crimes (anyone would be prosecuted for) while in or out of office.

Another thing we must all remember going forward for other trials. It only takes one Libtard on a jury that doesn’t give a flying F&%* about the law to get any one of these people off scott free. This is the sad state that we are in. Nearly one half or our nation is infected with a mental disorder that clouds all reality.
          I am not trying to diminish our spirit. I’m just trying to get everyone used to the reality that the real goal in the end is political embarrassment for an entire Party, resulting in decades of lost elections. That is the best we can hope for. I’ll take it. We should, nevertheless pursue all legal action we possibly can. They will throw a few underlings under the bus for sure.
          My PERSONAL belief is that we should put traitors against the wall at dawn and shoot them. My logical mind tells me those days are gone; maybe not forever, but certainly for the foreseeable future.

            …spying on Trump; is not a crime by a sitting President. He can spy on whoever he wants as CIC.

            A sitting president may “can” do it, because he has lackeys willing to break the law for personal and political gain, but neither you, I or any other citizen forfeited our rights to him or the office. Besides, there is no reason a president would have to spy on any citizen, without doing it legally for cause, other than for nefarious purposes. If there’s just cause, get a warrant. Just because you can do something doesn’t mean it’s legal, right or wise.

            I’m not disputing what you’re saying. Powerful people misusing that power is an age-old problem. Power tends to corrupt. Absolute power absolutely corrupts. Human beings will never evolve out of human nature. There will always be liars, crooks, thieves and murderers and some of them will seem to get away with it.

            My point is about the law and the moral responsibilities of government officials (and all of us), because when the truth about the crimes committed and who committed them comes out, and it will, the talking heads will deny, ridicule, then justify, using pretty much the same argument you did: the president has the power to spy on private citizens, without going through the legal channels…because it’s secret, ya know…for national security reasons and the spied upon should be glad. They’re already rounding that curve.

            No one should believe the lies, even if the kingpins of crimes never face justice…in this world…but I’m not giving up on equal justice for all. Everything eventually comes to an end. Might as well be now.

            May they all fall from the grace they have wantonly bestowed on themselves to accept the grace of Jesus, before it’s too late, and accept, with grace, justice being fulfilled in this life, according to the law.

      • Many legal scholars have been pontificating about how Trump CAN’T be indicted. As POTUS, if we allowed any piddly prosecutor to tie up a president with criminal indictments and all of the legal tape, court appearances etc., no President would be able to do their job. The crimes Obama may have committed happened while he was CIC. As such he can order anything he wants. The only possible charge would be treason during a war. That is the only charge that puts one outside of Constitutional protection. You can be shot without trial. Doppler’s comment about possible crimes after leaving office is valid, but I have not seen evidence of that. After the plan was set in motion it was handled by operatives in the DOJ and the FBI with support from Clinton inc. If you want to fantasize about Obama in handcuffs, go ahead. I’ll bet my left one that it will never happen. Not only to this guy but any President ever.

      Certainly I have only my own opinion on this, but think the Hillary campaign was worried that the discovery of her emails might end up being a problem. The theory being, someone “hacked” my emails so must be the Russians (they do all bad things). They needed a villain. They worked on the Dossier with the help of McCabeStrzokPage and Comey/Lynch. Comey had to let her off, or she couldn’t win the election. Period. I would bet they were getting ready for anyone that might be her foe. (I still wonder if McCain’s involvement with the dossier wasn’t to help out his buddy Lindsay.)

      I believe Obama, on the other hand, and BrennanClapperRice were always into spying on other countries and those here that might be opposed to them (Trump was an enemy because of the birth certificate thing). Its what they do. They were so busy doing under handed stuff, no wonder they accomplished next to nothing.

      Once Trump won, all hell broke loose. They needed to set up a trap to use to tie Trump to the Russians with any means necessary. I think they truly believed with all his business deals, given time, they would root out something that could be used as evidence. Problem is the more they look, the more nothing of substance is found.

    A Baltic state intelligence agency allegedly intercepts a phone conversation which indicates Russian government funds are being injected into US elections back and forth between Trump Tower and two banks in Moscow, Alfa Bank and state-owned Sberbank, a partner of US Silicon Valley Bank. Silicon Valley, home of zealots like Eric Schmitt/Google, those with enough nerd power to help bank “pings”.

    Reports come from Eastern Europe Intel agencies (wink-wink really from USAid Soros and his CIA ties). Passed on to FBI counterintelligence by Brennan/CIA and submitted for National Security Letters. For the bank ping, the best route for the Swamp is the National Security Letter to look into finances and banks. FISA bypassed.

    Another thought that I haven’t seen discussed anywhere.

    I remember and it was confirmed recently that suddenly there appeared a great media pressure on Trump to name his foreign policy advisers.

    I never heard about such request before and it was never brought up as a requirement in any other any political campaign. It came out of nowhere and the pressure followed Trump on any interaction with the media until he announced his five advisers (at least two of them spies) reporting to Sessions whom he appointed the chief cheese on foreign policy. And that advisory created a spy gateway to Trump’s campaign and the beginning of Russiagate.

    Two questions. 1. Who gave the order to the media? How was it done? It was clearly coordinated with DOJ, CIA, FBI. The coordination is clearly immoral and I suspect illegal. Don’t you think it’s worth investigating?

    2. Which role did Session play in all of this? Was it his idea to be in charge of that group? Did he push for creating this group? Or simply put, unbeknownst to Trump, did he talk to CIA/FBI/DOJ about that group before or after the group was created?

    The news spin was she was trolling Trump. No, she was trolling US! Democrat royalty loves to demonstrate how clever they are about getting away with stuff. That hat was a “tell” message from Hillary’s subconscious: “I am so clever I will brazenly allude to a Russian connection on MY campaign’s part, and if it comes out there was one, everyone will mock the idea, because I mocked it first! This just proves how brilliant and untouchable I am as a Democrat royal blood.”

    As a young lad, I remember seeing Ted Kennedy on the cover of LIFE magazine, shortly after he negligently took the life of a young woman in an automobile accident, and managed to evade any consequences for it.

        In the third and final (terminal) stage, the infected individual’s existing symptoms, like ataxia, progress to the point where they are no longer capable of sitting without support.

    Mifsud has virtually disappeared since his name was made public late last year. In their book, Roh and Pastor say that they last spoke to Mifsud by phone on January 13, 2018.
    Mifsud told them that he had been “set up,” according to the authors, and called Papadopoulos an “agent provocateur.”
    Mifsud had gone into hiding, he told them, after “the head of the Italian secret services contacted the President of LINK Campus, Vincenzo Scotti,” and recommended that Mifsud “disappear.” Since then, Mifsud “has been requested to hide, not to communicate, and not to speak to the press,” Roh and Pastor write. “He has been ‘put away’ and threatened to stay quiet.”

    Well he has not been entirely quit and has denied he ever told Papadopoulos anything about Clinton emails or dirt.
    So that tells me he has been told to be quiet by people who want to maintain the Russian Hoax narrative alive for at least a bit longer (or those who have been involved in the setup)…

    I do not believe Mifsud’s comments that Papadopoulos is a agent provocateur. The one with the very extensive Western Intelligence connections (and who can be expected to be a player) is Mifsud, not Papadopoulos.

      How could Papadopoulos be central to a counterintelligence investigation of a presidential candidate if DNI Clapper had never heard of him?

        Good question. Answer would be: because Papadopoulos wasn’t central to starting the investigation. That was just the excuse that they concocted once the Carter Page excuse was no longer valid.

        I really do wonder how they will spin their next excuse. Because they need a replacement for Papa Doc… ahum PapaD

          There is another thing they’ll need a new excuse for.
          They have intentionally leaked the ID of Halper as ‘ FBI Informant’ for some reason, but the issue is that we now know that he also was in active operation against Trump campaign people before the start of the FBI investigation… woops.

          So logically he wasn’t an FBI informant at that time, but an intelligence operative / agent provocateur. But isn’t it illegal to use any other 3-letter agency (bar NSA) to spy on US nationals and work against a campaign as a government employee/org? Using gov resources for partisan politics is Hatch Act violation.
          Or if they claim that he really was operating as an FBI informant/agent also before the FBI investigation started (… que? …) then this is also illegal as they first need to open an investigation (and they need some predicate for that).

          So how do they spin that one? Yet another excuse in order to switch start of investigation? Aren’t they committed to July 31th, 2016?

          And why did they out Halper in the first place? Or was that information really leaked by good guys? I don’t think so, so why drawing the attention to Halper.. Hmmm…

  37. Today the NY Slimes published what was supposed to be a “confidential” memo from President Trump’s lawyers to Herr Mueller. The letter is well worth reading and I suspect that was a lot of input from Joe DiGenova and some of the other attorneys who have been behind the scenes.

    Halpern is a DIVERSION, guys. Ask yourself why they gave up Halpern. Remember….deep state DOJ perps are the ones who purposefully leaked identifying info to draw attention to Halper. This is not to say that Halper wasn’t used by the deep state. He was. But he was used later in the campaign spying.

    No, they purposefully leaked Halper’s identity because we were getting too close to comfort to what really started all of it.

    Here’s what I’m getting at…

    When Tracy Beanz posted recently the stunner revelation showing the timing of the spying beginning in APRIL 2016, it all started to come together for me on who it is and why they so quickly gave up Halpern. Tracy’s tweet here:

    SO who volunteered to work in the Trump campaign in APRIL 2016? THIS IS GOING TO BE THE INFORMANT. THANK YOU GLENN SIMPSON…
    Quote:
    “Simpson said the FBI informant volunteered for the job -a person who decided to pick up the phone and join the investigation.” https://t.co/Kbe29NMJih

    Remember this?https://t.co/LAoy3szOVt
    We all assumed this meant P-dop began “cooperating” & wearing a wire AFTER his July 2017 arrest… But how do we know that or that is the only time he did?

    Evidence suggests that he began trying to ‘entrap’/lay the ground work for a Russia connection from the start. He joined the Trump campaign as a volunteer from Ben Carson’s campaign in March 2016 & almost immediately began trying to set up a meeting b/w Trump & Putin and tried to get expenses for his trip with Mifsud paid retroactively (naturally that would tie the campaign to it if they had approved it. Thankfully they didn’t).

    This would mean that P-Dop was a spy/’confidential informant’ for FBI in *APRIL 2016* – & Strzok text confirms. P-Dop was a plant. P-Dop got nothing. But the entrapment attempt is obvious…Yet Trump admin nixed the second attempt by being transparent:
    https://t.co/36MmJE1ZFa

    This must be why they are so hell-bent on hiding when/how this investigation began and who the ‘spy’ was … And certainly has to be the reason they willingly ‘out-ed’ Halper….To throw everyone off realizing they put P-dop in to get dirt on Trump in APRIL 2016 when there was NO CRIMINAL PREDICATE.

    When they got nothing, they were left with plan B. Pinch the weakest link. Papadopolous. They had to make sure he didn’t open his mouth and what better way than threaten to prosecute him for it unless he cooperates and then slap a gag on him prohibiting him from talking to anyone.

    Personally I don’t think he taped any conversations with anyone after his arrestment. I think the plea is written vaguely to loosely include that he wore a wire, because he DID wear a wire….But it was in APRIL 2016, when he was trying to set up folks to make it appear there was collusion with Russia.

    Maybe I’m wrong. I don’t think so though.

      I think you’re on to something here. I also think there’s a good possibility Carter Page is a plant as well. Page is a former Clinton volunteer, Military Intelligence, UN intelligence, then worked 3 years undercover for the FBI against the Russians leading to convictions. Then a month later he pops up in the Trump campaign as a volunteer? I suspect his next undercover assignment was to infiltrate the Trump campaign, thus allowing the FBI to claim he was a spy/launch a FISA warrant, as well as to try and entrap people within the campaign.

    KBR, LOL!
    I usually follow that rule, broke it this time.
    The complete letter does show, along with periodic snarky comments attempting to refute specific points.
    Doesnt really tell us anything we dont already know, gets deep into the weeds.
    How they can ‘charge’ DJT with obstruction, for urging Comey to go easy on Flynn, but not charge O, for going on Natl. TV, and saying VIRTUALLY what Comey said at end of press conference, “no intent’ is ludicrous.
    This is like misfud, podopholus, etc.
    The actual ‘players’ in all this, are 3-6 mos. ‘down the road’ from all of us.
    My take is, DJT won. Deep State lost; they wete NOT able to destroy his credibility with American people, only their own.
    They were not able to hamstring him, and force him into a crouch, and prevent him from accomplishing enough of his agenda to IMPROVE his standing and political capitol with American people,
    And, they have not, successfully been able to stonewall and obsfucate and prevent the truth from coming out.
    So, Operation Watergate 2.0 has spectacularly backfired.
    All the key players know it; its like at a certain point, the war is ‘won’, both sides know it, yet it still needs to ‘play out’.

      I don’t doubt that they are 3-6 months behind us here at CTH, and probably 2 years behind PDJT!

      I just wish lawyers were required to have some common sense along with their legaleze obfuscations. READ THE LAW, don’t spin the law.

    …all roads lead back to the Obama Whitehouse where the ScrewTrump op was hatched, planned and managed. Obama was purposely kept behind a wall of “plausible deniability” so he would be protected from prosecution. Not so for his henchmen: Brennan, Rice, Powers and Rhodes who were left “holding the bag” once the plot unraveled. They were the schemers behind the spying and dirty tricks op and ran it through Brennan’s CIA and Comeys FBI with support from the Obama DoJ.

    All of the intrigue aside, it all boils down to these simple and provable facts that Obama set up the Trump campaign with: a phoney Russian collusion story, got the Clinton campaign to pay for the salacious PP docier, made villains out of dupes Page and Papadopoulos and then used them to open up a FISA approved full scale surveillance/wire tapping operation before, during and after the election. How deep Clinton involvement in the op has yet to be fully revealed.

    What’s really unbelievable, is that the ScrewTrump op and coverup continues to this day with the Mueller witch hunt still in operation. Jeff Sessions recusal from the investigation on day one seems to have been part of the plan to stymie the investigation. Will the IG report shed light on any of this surely remains to be seen.

    More data on Mifsud’s LCILP and its predecessor, EN Education Group Limited. Looks like a recruitment center for future spies, a poor man’s Rhodes scholarship or Cambridge-commie-club. Even caters to Arabic-speaking students.
