FISA Abuse: It is the Risk, the Reality, and the Reason…

The prior use of FBI and NSA networks for metadata exploitation and political surveillance is what underlines all of the current activity taking place within the current political battle.  Peel all of the layers of investigative schemes, intelligence deception, false and distracting media narratives -including Mueller- and what lies beneath it all is the weaponized use of database-collected material for political surveillance and exploitation.

It really is that simple.

Seriously.  Every motive and every action and reaction is directly connected to the need to hide what was taking place in 2015 and 2016 between officials within the DOJ, FBI and U.S. intelligence community, and outside government “contractors” (Fusion GPS, Crowdstrike etc.) who were political operatives.   Everything boils down to the common denominator of the abuse of the intelligence apparatus for political power.

There are a few intrepid researchers who have a solid understanding of the scheme, and more importantly all of the activity that has taken place in the FBI and DOJ-NSD effort to hide that scheme.  Over at Marketswork: Jeff has a terrific timeline where he takes the latest Mueller Russian indictment claims, and overlays the FISA matrix.  GO READ IT.

When you look at the timeline picture, and overlay the unlawful and illegal FISA-702(16)(17) users the picture is so clear it becomes silly to argue.  The DOJ indicting 12 Russians based on forensic computer data evidence provided to the connected Mueller team by FBI contractor Crowdstrike takes on new levels of ass-covering.  The motives are clear as day.

Crowdstrike was/is an FBI contractor.  Crowdstrike, along with Fusion GPS, likely participated in the exploitation of the FISA database that NSA Director Mike Rogers shut down.  Crowdstrike, operators and agents within the organization, could have even accessed the FBI/NSA database from servers connected to the DCCC, DNC and/or Clinton campaign.  Looking at the timeline it certainly needs to be explored…. but who would do the investigation?

Consider this February 2017 article against the probability of Crowdstrike, as a 2015/2016 FBI contractor, having entry access to the FISA database:

WASHINGTON — The FBI did not examine the servers of the Democratic National Committee before issuing a report attributing the sweeping cyberintrusion to Russia-backed hackers, BuzzFeed News has learned.

Six months after the FBI first said it was investigating the hack of the Democratic National Committee’s computer network, the bureau has still not requested access to the hacked servers, a DNC spokesman said. No US government entity has run an independent forensic analysis on the system, one US intelligence official told BuzzFeed News.

“The DNC had several meetings with representatives of the FBI’s Cyber Division and its Washington (DC) Field Office, the Department of Justice’s National Security Division, and U.S. Attorney’s Offices, and it responded to a variety of requests for cooperation, but the FBI never requested access to the DNC’s computer servers,” Eric Walker, the DNC’s deputy communications director, told BuzzFeed News in an email.

The FBI has instead relied on computer forensics from a third-party tech security company, CrowdStrike, which first determined in May of last year that the DNC’s servers had been infiltrated by Russia-linked hackers, the U.S. intelligence official told BuzzFeed News.

“CrowdStrike is pretty good. There’s no reason to believe that anything that they have concluded is not accurate,” the intelligence official said, adding they were confident Russia was behind the widespread hacks.

The FBI declined to comment.  (read more)

And the DOJ (Rosenstein/Mueller) is asserting an indictment based on forensic analysis from the same entities who were FBI contractors during “spygate”.?  C’mon, ridiculous.

The motives here are beyond obvious:

NSA examined all queries using identifiers for “U.S. persons targeted using the [Redacted] tool in [Redacted] from November 1, 2015 to May 1, 2016.

“NSA estimates that approximately eighty-five percent of those queries, representing [Redacted] queries conducted by approximately [Redacted] targeted offices, were not compliant with the applicable minimization procedures.”

A non-compliance rate of 85% raises substantial questions about the propriety of using [Redacted] to query FISA data. While the government reports that it is unable to provide a reliable estimate of the number of non-compliant queries since 2012, there is no apparent reason to believe the November 2015-April 2016 period coincided with an unusually high error rate.   (Page 82)

Via Marketswork:


  • Dimitry Alperovich – Co-Founder and CTO. Crowdstrike “investigated” the hacking of the DNC’s servers. The FBI was refused access to independently examine the DNC servers. Former NSA experts later claim it wasn’t a hack, but a leak by someone with access to the DNC’s system. Alperovich is a Non-Resident Senior Fellow at the Atlantic Council. Former McAfee Executive.
  • George Kurtz – Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer. Former McAfee Executive.
  • Steven Chabinsky – Former General Counsel and Chief Risk Officer (9/12-4/16). Appointed by Obama to the Commission on Enhancing National Cybersecurity on April 18, 2016 – two months before Crowdstrike report. Former Deputy Assistant Director of the FBI’s Cyber Division and FBI’s top cyber lawyer during Mueller’s tenure as FBI Director. Now a Partner at White & Case – a D.C. law firm.
  • Shawn HenryCSO and President of Crowdstrike Services since April 2012. Previously the FBI’s Executive Assistant Director of the Criminal, Cyber, Response, and Services Branch – appointed by FBI Director Mueller.
  • Robert Johnston – Principal Consultant & Incident Response Expert. Lead investigator on the DNC server investigation. Previously, Marine Corps captain in U.S. Cyber Command. Team Lead of 81 National Cyber Protection Team. Left Crowdstrike in August 2016 and co-founded cybersecurity firm Adlumin. The FBI has never spoken with Johnston.
  • Google invested $100 million in Crowdstrike in July 2015.

The timing between Admiral Rogers’ discovery of outside contractors and the sudden problems with the DNC Servers appears far too coincidental.

    Based on the investigative standards set by the Mueller team, I hereby indict all members of CTH for hacking the DNC server. Turn yourselves in and the Russian agent controlling you!

    We’d be better served with Maxwell Smart heading up the intelligence community. There should have been a laugh track to go along with Rosey’s “indictments”. Or at least two people dressed as Bullwinkle and Rocket J. Squirrel standing behind Rosey with wanted posters of Boris and Natasha.

      Rudy was doing those to Mueller.

      I’ve also studied Sun Tzu’s “The Art of War” and Thucydides’ “The History of the Peloponnesian War” which was fought between 431 and 404 BC, and many other treatises of warfare.

      I have been a warrior my whole life, and the study of tactics is the beginning of a warrior’s knowledge.

    For Review:
    Strzok knew that most of Hillary Clinton’s emails were in the hands of a foreign entity.
    He also knew that a whistleblower from the State Department tried delivering significant evidence in the Clinton email investigation which went nowhere.
    The FBI, and Comey in particular, ignored this whistleblower’s evidence.

    So given that we now have at least two major bombshells that the FBI sat on, we revisit the case of CIA whistleblower Dennis Montgomery – who similarly walked into the Washington D.C. FBI field office in 2015 with 47 hard drives and 600 million pages of information he says proves that President Trump and others were victims of mass surveillance, according to NewsMax:

    “Under grants of immunity, which I obtained through Assistant U.S. Attorney Deborah Curtis, Montgomery produced the hard drives and later was interviewed under oath in a secure room at the FBI Field Office in the District of Columbia. There he laid out how persons like then-businessman Donald Trump were illegally spied upon by Clapper, Brennan, and the spy agencies of the Obama administration.
    Montgomery left the NSA and CIA with 47 hard drives and over 600 million pages of information, much of which is classified, and sought to come forward legally as a whistleblower to appropriate government entities, including congressional intelligence committees, to expose that the spy agencies were engaged for years in systematic illegal surveillance on prominent Americans, including the chief justice of the Supreme Court, other justices, 156 judges, prominent businessmen such as Donald Trump, and even yours truly. Working side by side with Obama’s former Director of National Intelligence (DIA), James Clapper, and Obama’s former Director of the CIA, John Brennan, Montgomery witnessed “up close and personal” this “Orwellian Big Brother” intrusion on privacy, likely for potential coercion, blackmail or other nefarious purposes.
    He even claimed that these spy agencies had manipulated voting in Florida during the 2008 presidential election, which illegal tampering resulted in helping Obama to win the White House.”

    In March of 2017, Montgomery and his attorney Larry Klayman of Freedom Watch traveled to D.C. to meet with House Judiciary Committee Chairman Devin Nunes in the hopes that he would ask Comey about the evidence – only to be “blown off” by the Chairman.
    It seems like we have some serious issues to revisit as a country.

      I’m shocked to hear Nunes blew off Montgomery and Klayman. I thought what Nunes saw at the White House ( and told Trump about) was the Montgomery trove. Subsequent to that event, for which Nunes got terrific heat from The Left and was barred from the committee for 8 months because of it, there was a news report that Montgomery gave the files to Comey and no one heard of the case again after that. Also I had heard that a year had passed between the time Montgomery stole the files and hard drives, and the time he gave them to Comey, during which he shopped them to others but couldn’t arouse any interest. Nothing I read or heard ever mentioned the nature of what the trove allegedly would reveal, other than that it was very damaging to the Justice Department.

        This is why I have a visceral reaction to the phoney outrage of these oversight committee s. They knew all along. Just like the President, DOJ, and the FBI. It was business as usual until Trump turned the table over.

        Nunes might not have been ignoring Montgomery as much as realizing that the current process would be in fact damaged by the addition of hard drives that don’t have a solid proof of chain of custody. Not saying that’s true, but there are usually more than one motive for choices made.


        • beach lover says:

          I agree. If this was the bombshell it is being portrayed as, Nunes would want it. either he is afraid of being dragged into a false story that would undermine everything he has worked toward, or he isn’t sure this is the real deal. Im sure he has to be very cautious now with whistleblowers. Not saying this is false.. just that I can see why he is hesitant.

      “Does anyone see any danger in me posting Sundance articles to Facebook”

      Yeah, I do

      I don’t make liberals aware of Treehouse
      I don’t direct their attention to it

      I don’t want liberals to know what we know

      I don’t put stuff in open forums where they might see it, even if I would intend to post it there for the benefit of conservatives. I might post a Breitbart article if I want to troll them. But no Treehouse.

      Send links and excerpts of Treehouse articles to your conservative friends via email instead.

      The only people I share Treehouse content with are known conservatives
      Fellow travelers
      Mainly family

      Maybe maybe maybe a few middle-roaders who I’m fairly confident might be swayed
      Like #walkaway type people

      But that’s a very, very small and select few. And I state that more as a hypothetical, I can’t think of cases where I’ve done that.

      Don’t trick yourself into thinking that Leftys will be swayed by reason or the exemplary content of Treehouse

      They won’t

      Don’t trick yourself into thinking there’s benefit in free and open conversation

      There isn’t

      Lefty’s might SAY that they’d like open discussion, to hear other views
      Yeah … for about 10 minutes
      Then they’re back to their CNN / MSNBC / Rachel Maddow-informed viewpoints

      It’s a bridge too far
      The media they consume makes them uneducable and incommunicable

      I’ve stopped trying to sway or convince Leftys of anything.
      You both get muddy and the liberal enjoys it.

      Be polite, be personable, be kind
      But don’t think you’ll sway minds

      We know what we know
      They don’t have the background or read the right media to understand what we know
      Don’t bother trying

      They’ve revealed themselves lately with the across-the-board vitriol.

      It’s not only the Antifers, it’s the entire left, even the ones more toward center.

      They’d have us in camps if they could.
      If they get back in power it’s curtains.

      Look where we were headed, the progress they’ve made the past 50 years

      If not for PresTrump, our nation was done
      Ash-heap of history, I’m talking

      Look how they continue their attempted coup, they’re full-bore for impeachment

        … oh, and here’s a partial workaround, as an afterthought.

        Many of Sundance’s posts refer to other articles.

        Yes, Sundance creates an enormous amount of original content and analysis, but there’s often a germ of an outside source for the topic of a given post.

        And Sundance is conscientious about citing them, as an honorable journalist / analyst should.

        Look for hot links in the opening couple sentences or a “Read More” at the end of the post.

        So if you want to make a point, cite the outboard sources, the outboard articles. Place those links in public forums like facebook.

        I often do this with Breitbart stories because all liberals have the same reaction if I were to post a Breitbart link, they roll their eyes and whine “Oh, you simply CAN’T trust anything from Breitbart”!!!

        (This proves my view that they don’t want to understand, they don’t want discussion, they won’t address the technical aspects of the story. No … they wan to disregard the story by denigrating the character of the source, in this case Breitbart. If you can’t contest the facts, smear the messenger.)

        So I look in the Breitbart article for hot links, and usually there’ll be a link out to a local newspaper or TV outlet where whatever outrage occurred was covered by local news.

        Cite that.

        For Treehouse, same same.

Perhaps someone could explain this better than I did and the links. I just can remember the link, but the supporting info is stacked in one of my print outs around here. Guccifer 2.0 is none other than the black hat abc intel entity (Brennan camp or Comey camp).

    That is why you are seeing the hysteria from the democrats and media, starting at the moment when POTUS was meeting the Queen. Rosenstein rolled it out and the democrats and media started the orchestration.
    hysteria; plural noun: hysterias
    exaggerated or uncontrollable emotion or excitement, especially among a group of people.

    They have been building up to this – that the Trump Campaign colluded with Putin to stop Hillary from winning the Presidential election and installing a Russian puppet in the White House.
    This is there grand attempt to take the attention off their traitorous scheme to weaponize the DOJ/FBI and the MSM to impeach POTUS and take back the House and Senate majority in the coming midterms.

I don’t know how to link or follow. After your posts the last couple days I checked my notes on DWS last summer and found a note to myself to search George Webb. Didn’t get around to it.
          Back then I was doing two-word searches online for corruption/connections and hadn’t yet discovered CTH. Almost every search I did revealed government corruption. Corruption in our government is so widespread it’s mind-boggling. It’s thoroughly evil & criminal everywhere.
          That said, what you’re revealing is profound. If brought to the surface it might bring them all down and reform the Republic.
          A CTH Treeper Cali noted that Strzok is a “sociopathic narcissist”. Looked that up on line. Guess what, it’s not just Strzok, they’re all like that, arrogant, mean, vindictive, Comey, McCabe, Mueller, the lot. FBI/DOJ is a sociopathic narcissistic culture with nearly unlimited power and secrecy to destroy anyone they choose.
