Senate Investigators Suspect FBI Documents Were Manipulated By Deputy Director Andrew McCabe…

Journalist Paul Sperry dropped a bombshell tweet yesterday highlighting issues that have been longstanding within a senate investigation:

This is a BIG deal, obviously. However, it is actually an even bigger deal when put into context with prior inquiry by Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley about FBI manipulating FD-302’s, notes taken by FBI agents during interviews.

The current issue seems to align with Senator Chuck Grassley suspecting Andrew McCabe manipulated the FD-302 investigative notes from FBI Special Agent’s Peter Strzok and Joe Pientka, after they interviewed Mike Flynn. There is enough sketchy and contradictory information giving weight to a likelihood that Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe told FBI agents (Strzok and Pientka) to shape their FBI reports of the interview (FD-302’s) to assist a “Flynn lied” narrative.

On May 11th, 2018, Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley dropped a sunlight grenade into the prosecution of Michael Flynn with a jaw-dropping request letter. [Pdf Here]

Within the letter Chairman Grassley outlines a prior briefing from fired FBI Director James Comey to the Senate Judiciary Committee, and contrasts the false presentations of Comey -regarding Michael Flynn- against recently known evidence.

Within the May 11 letter Senator Grassley requested: ♦the transcription of the phone call(s) intercepted by the FBI between Flynn and Russian Ambassador Kislyak; ♦the FD 302’s written by the FBI in their interview with Michael Flynn; and ♦testimony from Special Agent Joe Pientka, the second FBI agent who was partnered with Peter Strzok for the Flynn interview.

The name of the second FBI agent, Joe Pientka, was previously unknown, and it’s likely Chairman Grassley outed the name for a very specific reason. This was a BIG shot across the bow.

“In addition, please make Special Agent Joe Pientka available for a transcribed interview with Committee staff no later than one week following the production of the requested documents”…

Adding to evidence Deputy FBI Director McCabe told FBI agents (Strzok and Pientka) to shape their FBI reports of the interview (FD-302’s) to assist a “Flynn lied” narrative researcher Nick Falco pointed out text messages between Lisa Page and Peter Strzok:

January 23, 2017, the day before the Flynn interview, Lisa Page says: “I can feel my heart beating harder, I’m so stressed about all the ways THIS has the potential to go fully off the rails.” Weird!

♦Strzok replies: “I know. I just talked with John, we’re getting together as soon as I get in to finish that write up for Andy (MCCABE) this morning.” Strzok agrees with Page about being stressed that “THIS” could go off the rails… (Strzok’s meeting w Flynn the next day)

♦Why would Page & Strzok be stressed about “THIS” potentially going off the rails if everything was by the book?

BECAUSE IT WASN’T!

It was a conspiracy to entrap Gen Mike Flynn. All Strzok needed was an excuse to speak w Flynn. Everything in the 302 was likely fabricated.

February 14th, 2017, there is another note about the FBI reports filed from the interview.

Peter Strzok asks Lisa Page if FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe is OK with his report: “Also, is Andy good with F-302?”

Lisa Page replies: “Launch on F 302”.

And we know from their discussions of manipulating FBI reports a year earlier, inside the Hillary Clinton investigation, that Peter Strzok has withheld information, and manipulated information, through use of the 302 reports [LINK]:

On Wednesday June 6th, 2018, Senator Chuck Grassley sent another letter. This time he’s ANGRY about the initial response from the DOJ and FBI [pdf link]:

[…]  “disclosing facts to the Committee could not possibly “interfere” with the case at this late date, assuming those facts are consistent with the representations that prosecutors arranged for Lt. General Flynn to swear to in federal court.”

“If the facts are inconsistent with the plea agreement, that would be an entirely different kettle of fish.” ~ Senator Grassley

There’s the implication.

If the “facts” of the Flynn case don’t match up with the details presented to the court (via “plea agreement”), it’s likely the underlying case evidence is fraudulent. ie. the FD-302’s were falsified.

However, Senator Grassley is not just relying on his research and investigative discoveries about the Flynn case. The Chairman also has prior knowledge of potentially falsified FBI statements to his oversight committee via. the Christopher Steele testimony.

At the beginning of the year Senator Grassley identified likely received false information from the FBI.  He gave a critically important speech about it in January:

.

[…] “in the course of our review, Senator Graham and I came across some information that just does not add up. We saw Mr. Steele swearing one thing in a public libel suit against him in London.”

“Then we saw contradictory things in [FBI] documents that I am not going to talk about in an open setting. And from everything we’ve learned so far, we believe these discrepancies are significant.”

“The Special Counsel should be free to complete his work, and to follow the facts wherever they lead. However, that doesn’t mean I can ignore what look like false statements.”…

Then comes the key point:

“we start by assuming that government documents are true until we see evidence to the contrary. If those documents are not true, and there are serious discrepancies … then we have another problem—an arguably more serious one.”

What Senator Grassley is outlining in this speech is the conflicting statements by Chris Steele (under oath), and the information the FBI used to assemble the FISA application using the Steele Dossier. The FBI said they had no idea Steele was shopping his dossier to the media. Hence they felt confident using it in the FISA application.

However, Christopher Steele essentially said: “BULLSHIT”, the FBI (Peter Strzok) knew I was shopping the dossier to media, knew it was unverified raw intelligence, and should never have relied on it.

Under oath (in UK court), Chris Steele made statements so contradictory to the FBI – the interpretation could only be: the FBI lied to the FISA Court, and also lied to Senate Judiciary during oversight review.

In an effort to call the FBI’s bluff and discover the truth Grassley told the FBI if their FD-302 documented version of discussion with Steele was truthful, then PROSECUTE STEELE FOR LYING to the FBI [LINK]:

As the New York Times pointed out in January “Mr. Grassley’s decision to recommend criminal charges appeared likely to be based on reports of Mr. Steele’s meetings with the F.B.I., which were provided to the committee by the Justice Department in recent weeks.”

The “reports of Mr. Steele’s meetings with the F.B.I.” are the FD-302’s the FBI gave Chairman Grassley to back up their version of events.

The FBI is attributing claims to the meetings with Christopher Steele that do not match known evidence about the Steele Dossier and use therein; and do not match the statements by Mr. Steele given under oath.

Senator Grassley suspected, and likely knew, the motive to lie about the Steele Dossier *does not* belong to Christopher Steele. The motive to lie is within the corrupt FBI who were manipulating the validity of the Dossier to gain a FISA warrant.

And almost a year later the DOJ never filed charges against Steele for lying to the FBI because he didn’t. The FBI, through false documents, lied to the FISA Court (dossier) and also lied to Chuck Grassley (falsified FD-302’s).

Knowing the Comey/McCabe FBI has a history of falsifying FD-302 reports to achieve politically motivated investigative purposes, Senator Grassley is now going to highlight how the FBI falsified the Mike Flynn FD-302’s.

This is epic.

There are now three provable citations/examples showing evidence that James Comey’s FBI investigative units falsified FD-302 documents.

♦The first example is Peter Strzok, Andrew McCabe and James Comey falsifying/manipulating Clinton investigation email 302’s submitted to congress.

♦The second example is the FBI falsifying/manipulating FD-302’s about contacts and interviews with Christopher Steele. [To create a FISC application and gain the FISA Title-1 surveillance warrant against U.S. person Carter Page]

♦The third example is now the FBI falsifying/manipulating FD-302’s surrounding the interview with Michael Flynn. Those falsified 302 FBI interview notes were then used by Deputy Attorney Sally Yates and head of the DOJ-NSD Mary McCord to inform White House Legal Counsel Don McGahn and frame Michael Flynn.

          The first judge in the case, Contrerars, was recused. Almost certainly not voluntarily, but by the head of the FISA court, Collyer. Judge Sullivan replaced him.
          The judge required Mueller to surrender exculpatory evidence to the Flynn defense team. That requirment spelled the end for Mueller’s prosecution of Flynn. Mueller knew that the F302s were manufactured, and that exposing that is the exoneration of Flynn.
          So Mueller cannot ‘follow through’ with any sentencing. Flynn will be exonerated, and I think the moment that that happens all kinds of debris hits the fans. For instance, one or more perps who still have their passports (they have just seen Wolfe surrender his passport) will flee.

            You plead guilty for a simple reason – once you “go for it” and get convicted despite your innocence, you’re going to prison. The system only approximates justice. There is no guarantee it will be delivered. You can easily become someone who fell outside the approximation zone.

        It is enough to tell him they will prosecute him no matter how weak their case, he’ll be bankrupt before he can prove his innocence. Which is silly of course as it should be reverse. Sadly he already had to sell his house, even when he took the plea. Imagine what would have happened if he hadn’t.

        I recently won a court-case against (local) government, but that was only on 3rd try; they had been lying all the time but judges tend to believe the ‘independent’ people from government to do everything ‘by the book’.

        Or they could nail him for late registration on FARA as an agent of Turkey. Never-mind that most lobbyists never bother to register. The Podesta bro’s often forgot or were very late (as in last year for stuff years ago). No equality under the law. Now the Podesta’s had made a bit of a bigger mess than most, but all they got was that the last bro had to put out the lights of his firm and retire. That was it.

          The problem with the court system, from the lowest Village Justice of the Peace all the way up to the Supremes, is that the the so called “judges” are nothing more than successful POLITICIANS who manage to get elected or appointed to the position.
          In local justice courts, they don’t even have to be a lawyer to run for that office! And believe me, we get some real winners making life and death decisions on people when they don’t have a clue what the law demands.

            The first was an injunction to start building and I lost that one. That was years ago.
            So now I’ve won and the road as well as the zoning is illegal, but the reality is already there. So it is onward to damages and perhaps they can put the damn barrier in place. Which if they had done so immediately would not have cost them this much in lawyer costs …

              In the 1700’s and 1800’s, if enough local residents were against what the govt was trying to do; let’s say, build a road through their village using oxen to haul a grading sledge instead of bulldozers and backhoe’s like today, the villagers would’ve shot the oxen and burned the grading sledge. And if that didn’t stop the road, they’d have burned the town manager’s house to the ground. And the majority of residents, even if they didn’t participate, would support those actions.

              How far we’ve fallen from securing our rights against the petty tyrants who willfully and knowingly break the law, all the while knowing they’ll never face more duress than being called names in the paper or being sued, for which the govt – not them – will pay.

          Mike Flynn Jr posted this on Twitter yesterday. The tone is pretty typical for him:

          “James Clapper continues his disinformation lying campaign to cover his own rear end.”

          I don’t think either one sounds like someone they have dirt on. Flynn jr, Trump jr, and the Donald all use Twitter to trigger snowflakes and leftist trolls – it’s really amusing. At first, I felt sorry for Flynn jr because trolls constantly taunt him about his father going to jail, but the fact that he keeps intentionally triggering them makes me think he knows his dad will be fine. I sure hope I’m reading that right.

I do fully appreciate that the FBI threatened Flynn that they would go after his son, but based on their behavior, there is no reason to think they wouldn’t just make up charges against him and falsify evidence to support their claims. From Flynn’s position, having been the victim of just such abuse, that would be enough to make him “confess” even if he knew with 100% certainty that his son was squeaky clean.

Nothing of course could be further from the truth, but as I am certain based on evidence that they couldn’t possibly care less about truth and justice, my contacting them would simply be a waste of my time.

    I will paraphrase Vanderbough: when elections are outlawed (or rendered meaningless) I still get to “vote”.

    Sunlight is disinfectant. The will and support of the people are the foundation of any system of government. This means the correct way out of any political crisis is to tell the truth and let the chips fall where they may. Only once a solid foundation has been reestablished can we move forward. In any America I want to live in that foundation is truth. Truth begets trust. I know these things are known but sometimes restating them is important.

    In a way all of this is actually very fortunate as it demonstrates clearly to the American people just how out-of-touch Washington DC is. What shall we think about a “Justice Department” that doesn’t want to tell the truth?

    SOMEONE Please answer this. Why did a General need to be interviewed about what he said WHEN they have Recording of it from a wiretap? There was commentary a few weeks ago about how the agents ‘could detect no signs’ of lying from Gen Flynn’s demeanor or ‘body language’. My thoughts on that were…who cares…you got the transcript, you know exactly what happened. So, why is the general even being interviewed other than to frame him…and frame him in a premediated manner.
    The patriot should never have been interviewed. if so, they should have told him they had a transcript of the call (which he likely knew, he is no dummy). There should have been more than one adult in the room who said 1) this is a perfectly legal conversation to have with a Russian ambassador if your incoming national security advisor OR 2) “yeah, I want no part of framing a general, I am not stooping to such a low low” but they did.

      I haven’t read this anywhere. I didn’t read all of the comments today, but I’ve never seen it pointed out before.

      Lynn had every reason to be weary of talking to the FBI and possibly of even telling the truth, so he may have felt justified in wording his interview in somewhat less than a truthful manner.

      He would have known of the NSA meeting with Trump at Trump Tower on November 17, 2016. Of course, after the meeting, Trump moved his transition HQ to NJ. He may have even been in the meeting, I can’t remember.

      He would have known the FBI was in on the coup attempt against Trump.

      He certainly would have known the FBI had it out for him because of his support for the woman who was accusing McCabe of sexual harassment.

      It seems odd to me that he wouldn’t have been more cautious when blindsided by the FBI. All he had to do was say “I’m busy with the new administration, I’ll get back to you when I have more time.”

      Oh lots of things.
      Flynn 302 is discussed here.
      FISA of Carter Page
      Delay of the Wiener email trove

      FISA Page of 2016-10-31 also depends on 302’s apparently, or at least the CYA does. They used reporting (Yahoo , Isakoff etc) as corroborating evidence for the dodgy dossier in that FISA warrant application. But that reporting was based on the dossier & Steele. So it can’t be used in that way. And constitutes lying to a judge, making false claims etc.
      They claim that they did not know that at the time. They also claim (in 302’s) that they only found out LATER that Steele talked to reporters LATER (as they needed to renew, capise?). Hence the Grassley referral against Steele, which actually is a referral against those FBI/DOJ involved in that.

      In the case of the Wiener emails: they were discovered by NYPD serving a warrant on Wiener as part of another case. They had a warrant to search his house and impound his computer and any other devices. Now this discovery dates from summer 2016 or September 2016 at the latest. And then the games start.
      A lawyer for DOJ(?) then 1) claims that ANOTHER warrant is needed to be able to look into the Huma/HRC emails found on Wiener’s laptop and 2) a high ranking person at DOJ or FBI then refuses to arrange for such a warrant.
      FBI leadership is aware, and after a while very aware (NYPD and local FBI field office p-ed off), yet they refuse to lean on DOJ.
      That works fine until lower ranks in FBI and NYPD revolt and threaten to publish all emails unless the investigation starts. So at long last Comey & McCabe have no other choice then to start that investigation (and announce it close to the election late Oct 2016).
      Of course that is a quicky semi investigation which finds ‘nothing new’ (which in turn may in fact be true, as they would find again that about 10% of all work related emails are or contain classified or secret information, or worse).

        My own guess on why Comey sent that letter to Congress in late October 2016 was not just to stop the locals and FBI-NYO from publishing the e-mails but so that he could control the the flow of information on the question. By announcing a re-opening, he was setting up himself and the FBI-HQ as the scheduler for any further developments. Anyone who would publish any e-mails in the meanwhile would be interfering with the investigation and show almost treasonous disregard for the pursuit of justice. IOW, as Rosenstein has done with such aplomb for the past 14 months, Jimmy Comey could play the Swamp version of “hide the salami” on the reinstated investigation. And if anything actually came out from anotehr source that he didn’t want out, he could employ the second Beltway salami tactic: slice the salami (look at a minor point, complain about leaking, plead classified material and take ages to get back with much material still redacted)..

    From the Grassley pdf:

    “Presuming that the facts are consistent with the plea agreement, there is absolutely nothing for the Department to hide and no reason to act like it has something to hide. Resisting Congressional oversight only serves to further undermine public trust in the Department. By contrast, cooperation could enhance public trust in the Department by demonstrating that its work can withstand independent scrutiny. The lack of transparency feeds public skepticism about the Department’s actions regarding Lt. General Flynn and related matters. For example, a summary of Lt. General Flynn’s intercepted calls with the Russian ambassador was illegally leaked to the media, presumably by a current or former government official. One of the FBI agents who reportedly conducted the interview of Lt. General Flynn, Peter Strzok, was later removed from the Russia investigation after his texts demonstrating animus and bias toward Mr. Trump were uncovered. Additionally, former Director McCabe was fired for lack of candor regarding a leak to the
    Wall Street Journal, and Lt. General Flynn was an adverse witness in a pending sexual discrimination case against Mr. McCabe at the time Mr. McCabe was supervising a criminal inquiry targeting Lt. General Flynn.”

    Grassley is going to the heart of what it means to “lie.” Flynn “lied” to the FBI and, therefore, brought the house down upon himself. But what constitutes said lie? Mendacious speech is an act of lying, but what about the moral obligation of honesty when the “truth” concerning the charged mendacity is being purposefully hidden by those making the charge?

    In law, lying by omission is when an important fact is left out (omitted) in order to foster a misconception. That is what Grassley is after concerning the “case” constructed by the DOJ and FBI in nailing Flynn for lying. What they did is more than “entrapment.” It set Flynn up for the fall and then actively covered up the evidence of the entrapment. Entrapment is a complete defense to a criminal charge, on the theory that “Government agents may not originate a criminal design, implant in an innocent person’s mind the disposition to commit a criminal act, and then induce commission of the crime so that the Government may prosecute.” [Jacobson v. United States, 503 U.S. 540, 548 (1992).]

    Grassley is not suggesting “entrapment” per se, but he is suggesting that the omission and manipulation of the truth by the government actors is criminal in nature.

    The deep state will keep getting “hoist on its own petard” so long as it manipulates the truth of what it does and what it has failed to do. The deep state has gone rogue and now it is being called to account.

    GatewayPundit has an article stating, “Reports are now circling that not only did corrupt former FBI Head McCabe alter the 302 regarding the interview with General Flynn that later was used to get Flynn fired and indicted by the corrupt Mueller team, McCabe and his corrupt gang also destroyed the supporting documentation for the 302. Internet sleuths are again at it. New reports are out suspecting that corrupt and fired former FBI Head McCabe destroyed evidence that General Flynn was innocent and did not lie to FBI agents when interviewed shortly after the 2017 Inauguration. Flynn was later indicted by the corrupt and conflicted Mueller team.

    They cite a tweet by Techno_Fog in the article. Techno_Fog additionally states that Mueller’s #2 Weissmann destroyed 302s and drafts/notes.

    Wonder if there are archives of the original 302’s or if McCabe somehow had them deleted?

    Why isn’t POTUS Trump’s FBI director cleaning house and letting the sunshine in, proving that he’s Trump’s man to drain the swamp? Why is Wray acting like he is Obama’s FBI director, protecting the criminals inside the agency? Did Wray commit crimes too?

        it is hard for me to believe mueller is on trump’s side but the more you see all of these endless trials and indictments.. he’s probably very key to hold onto as long as possible and keep everyone thinking that he is anti-trump. first key is the article said trump interviewed mueller for FBI director day before special counsel.. but mueller was NOT eligible to be FBI director so he obviously interviewed him for something else.. mueller served 10+2 years and that is more than max…

        but IF this is the way it is.. mueller is very valuable to trump because it is the confusion needed to really deal with the kind of people you are up against. with ongoing uranium one, haiti, and other investigations he is easily implicated in.. and rod rosenstein… it is hard to believe they are not under some sort of deal to keep this confusion train rolling.. no one would’ve trusted sessions so he had to recuse and let rod help trick them also..

        thus trump meeting with both rod and mueller 2 days before and 1 day before special counsel appt respectively.

        like i said.. IF this is it.. i think it will go down in history as one of the best psy op ever done.

        but again like i said.. they would NOT be in that role because they are very guilty with all of these other investigations that i feel like they have no choice. mueller is also a marine and the president is the boss of marines. call me crazy. it’s ok. lol. a lot of this is set up. which is why you hear more stories about mueller investigation and less stories about who is really getting fired. here kitty kitty. what does a laser pointer do?

    Is this exchange between Strzok and Page indicative that Strzok has already written or is the pricess of writing his 302’s investigative opinion in line with the goals of McCabe, before the Flynn 302 documented meeting.

    Two strong possibilies here, both of which are not mutually exclusive. First, by having written the report outcome prior to the meeting, “Is Strzok outlining in his mind the things that need to be got on record?”, and second, “Did Strzok and/McCabe doctor or leave out of the 302’s documention of Mr. Flynn’s responces that did not comport to his already written report?”

    Hi folks,

    I found some supporting information which suggests Comey is way more involved with Mike Flynn issues than appears, and it looks like McCabe is not going to accept all the blame and will rat out Comey.

    Ref: recent NYT article of June 2, 2018 – ‘The Trump Lawyers’ Confidential Memo to Mueller’
    First letter dated January 28, 2018 –
    “According to Acting Attorney General Sally Yates (“Ms. Yates”), on January 24, 2017, Lt. Gen. Flynn was interviewed by the FBI. According to reports, “The FBI interviewers believed Flynn was cooperative and provided truthful answers. Although Flynn didn’t remember all of what he talked about, they don’t believe he was intentionally misleading them, the officials say.”

    “This account of the FBl’s interview and subsequent conclusions was later confirmed by the closed-door congressional testimony of Mr. Comey. Mr. Comey also confirmed in his May 3, 2017, Senate Intelligence Committee testimony that he “did participate in conversations about that matter” with Ms. Yates, referring to the FBl’s interview of Lt. Gen. Flynn. before she conveyed the information to the White House in the days that followed.”

    Ref: Comey testimony at Senate Judiciary Committee May 3, 2017 –
    GRAHAM: Did you ever talk to Sally Yates about her concerns about General Flynn being compromised?
    COMEY: I did, I don’t whether I can talk about it in this forum. But the answer is yes.
    GRAHAM: That she had concerns about General Flynn and she expressed those concerns to you?
    COMEY: Correct.
    ——————–
    WHITEHOUSE: It has been disclosed and publicly reported that there was a two day interval, between the FBI interview of Michael Flynn related to his conversations with Ambassador Kislyak and then deputy attorney general’s report to White House Counsel about those calls.
    Did you participate in conversations related to this matter during that two day interval and what can you tell us about why that interval took two days, was there some standard operating procedure that needed to be vindicated? Was there — you’d think that that could’ve flipped over to a conversation to the White House a good deal quicker than that once the agent’s report came back from the interview.

    COMEY: Yes, I don’t — I don’t know whether two days is right. I think it might have been a day. I could be wrong. It could have been two days. And I did participate in conversations about that matter, and I think I’ll stop there because I don’t …
    WHITEHOUSE: OK.
    COMEY: … I don’t know the department’s position on — on speaking about those communications.

    WHITEHOUSE: But as you sit here, you don’t have any hesitation about that delay, about it representing any kind of, you know, mischief or misconduct?
    COMEY: No, no and given your experience you know how this works. An agent conducts an interview, they’re going back, they write up a 302, they show it to their partner, they make sure they get it right, then they produce the 302, so sometimes it’s the next day before it’s finished.

    WHITEHOUSE: So the deputy — Ms. Yates would have seen the 302, and that process would’ve taken place by the time she went up to see White House counsel McGahn?
    COMEY: I think that’s right, yes.

    —————–

    It’s clear from Comey’s own testimony that he is discussing the interview with Flynn and no doubt egging on Yates to cause as much trouble as she can.
    Also, note the 302 procedures of being written but BOTH agent’s agree on the content. Therefore it is not possible for a 302 to be used or advanced without some almighty shenanigans at play. BOTH agent’s agree on content at write-up, procedurally it’s not possible (without changes later) for one agent to disagree and subsequently contest the information.

      Craig, nice work, and research! I do think you are on to something and hopefully, Comey will be held accountable for all of his lies and protection of Clinton. I’m sure he will get an invite to the next Clinton Foundation fundraiser.

      Comey said sometimes it’s the next day before the 302 is finished. Fine.

      Strzok and another FBI agent interviewed Flynn on Jan 24 2017. Why are Strzok and Page discussing if Andy is OK with the 302 on Feb 14? That’s like 3 weeks later.

      (By the way Strzok and Page, if you’re reading, we can figure out what “f 302” means. We’re not stupid. But you both seem to be. Hope you rot in hell.)

        Would this be Strzok altering and/or embellishing the original 302?
        It seems strange that Strzok requires confirmation all is ok with a document that should have been routinely filed 3 weeks earlier.

      I’m not certain how far back Comey participated in this coup attempt. However, he certainly DID end up being a participant.

      1. He signed the phony FISA warrant (Oct 2016) knowing full well the dossier he used was “salacious and unverified” (which he stated in June 2017).
      2. He knew the dossier had been paid for by Hillary. That it was opposition research.
      3. He knew Steele had been fired by his own FBI.
      4. After a WH meeting in January, he intentionally briefed Trump on only a small portion of the dossier, didn’t tell Trump Hillary had paid for it, or that a FISA warrant had been obtained using it.

      There is much more. Trump was getting ready to be his boss and yet he chose to continue to try to take him out even though he knew he was using phony evidence.

      I should add that he stated he was trying to get a SC appointed. This, again, using phony info. Comey is a co-conspirator after a certain point. That began long before the Flynn issue.

    Various courts all the way up to U.S. Supreme Court (SCOTUS) have ruled many times that LE (law enforcement) can freely lie in order to make arrests, get confessions, etc:

    That’s why every good attorney says you should NEVER talk to the police, even if you’re innocent as a new born baby. WATCH this law professor/working criminal defense attorney, and this retired police investigator/detective both explain in *detail* why you should never talk to the police.

      The “rule of law” has nothing to do with “democracy” or “human rights” or “social justice” which are all debatable concepts outside of the courtroom. No one inside of the courtroom is the master arbiter of debatable concepts. Therefore the “rule of law” is a matter of analytic clarity and logic. Citizens and all of the players brought together within the courtroom conflict must obey the law, even if they disagree with it. No one is above the rule of law and everyone is entitled with access to the rule of law.

      However, a “liberal” political morality holds views of the rule of law in an entirely different manner. Those associated with liberal political morality see the rule of law as a form of discretionary vengeance.

      The lay person sees the rule of law as absent of corruption or political taint and as an independent institution guided by a reverence for the rule of law.

      The problem is (in the USA) that all of the official actors in the court system are lawyers who practice the oftentimes arcane logic unique to their training. The commoner caught up before the court may be enlightened, reasoned and logical, but the court plays by its own specialized system of logic. Judicial discretion, the politics of the court officials and the social relationships within the legal fraternity often make the rule of law more like a ruling by an amalgamated junta than a deliberate application of the law. If this were not so, “judge shopping” would be meaningless and the 9th Circuit Court would go largely unnoticed.

      The rule of law is alway subjected to being subverted as a way to rule society in a way that benefits the state over the concepts of liberty, fairness, equality, and impartiality.

      Those carrying out the law must be subject to scrutiny and citizen review in order for the republic to remain viable. Abitration of administrative rules and regulations is not what the rule of law concerns. Yet we blend the two without acknowledging that in doing so, we are watering down the very essence of the rule of law.

    I’m reading these Strzok Page texts again, must be fourth time now for this batch Sundance exerpted (https://www.scribd.com/document/377540616/PS-LP-Text-Messages-Dec-2016-May-2017) They make more sense each time I read them.

    The day Comey was fired, Strzok and Page were talking about “Sally” who must be Sally Yates. Yates was fired on Jan 31 2017. So why on May 09 2017 (the day Comey was fired) was Yates in the FBI building??? Start on page 31 of the scribd document.

    At 18:45 Strzok writes “I truly think she’d be happy to come back”. At 18:51 he writes “She and I talked. We both were talking about whether there are things we need to do immediately” and then continues “And we need to open the case we’ve been waiting on now while Andy is acting [Director]”. Why the h was Yates involved?? She was FIRED four months prior! She should have been banned from the building. The only thing that makes me feel decent about this is they were all in a panic They won a few battles but after Mueller was appointed their whole scheme started going off the rails. I think it was Page who was upset by the “rollercoaster”.

    Do not forget what happened on May 18th with the DoJ/FBI – Nunes – Gowdy meeting. Nunes and Gowdy do not show up after being given a heads up not to go and to not inform the DoJ they were not attending. The NYT and WaPo run with stories giving all the details of Halper anyway.

    That was a leak hunt.

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) – A longtime staffer of the U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee was arrested on Thursday on charges of lying to FBI agents investigating the illegal disclosure of classified information, the U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia said.

    James Wolfe, who worked for the committee as director of security for about 29 years, allegedly lied to FBI agents in December about his contacts with three reporters, U.S. Attorney Jessie Liu said in a statement.

    As director of security, Wolfe, 58, was responsible for safeguarding all classified information in the committee’s possession, the statement said.

  41. Note the date July 9. That’s when Mueller presents his case against 13 Russians, 2 Russia-linked companies, and one ham sandwich (a company that did not exist at the time). If he drops the case, it is dismissed, or he loses, Mueller is done.

    If Mueller didn’t know this, he should have. Whether it’s incompetence or corruption, Mueller needs to be investigated, removed, and probably jailed.
