FBI Director Christopher Wray Outlines China is Biggest Intelligence Threat….

FBI director Chrisopher Wray says Moscow continues to engage in ‘malign influence operations‘; however, China is the biggest current counterintelligence threat. Fox correspondent Catherine Herridge reports from the Aspen Security Forum in Colorado.

.

It is becoming increasingly obvious there are two larger motives for the Obama IC officials current disposition; two parallel operations which present a risk if exposed:

♦ 1. The entire construct of how the intelligence community was used for political purposes to advance the interests of the Clinton campaign.

  • Using FBI/NSA databases and political operatives posing as “FBI Contractors” to search for political opposition research.
  • Weaponizing the results from their unlawful and unauthorized search results to create a fraudulently lawful premise for active surveillance (via FISA Title-1 warrants).
  • Using the illicit and fraudulently gained surveillance authority to create an “insurance policy” against President Trump.

♦ 2. The unauthorized use of a private server likely led to Chinese hackers having access to all of the content of Hillary Clinton’s email and electronic communication. [As confirmed by the Inspector General of the Intelligence Community]

    Wray actually said that China is not only our greatest intelligence threat, China is our greatest threat period, from military, to economic, cyber, and influence. Wray said there are over 1000 FBI investigations on China in all 50 states, economic being one of the bigger areas.

    Something that seems to have been overlooked in Wray’s interview – the Small Group, addressed in the IG Report, is the area where most FBI agents have lost the most faith, although morale remained high in the Bureau.

    —>>>Wray said – and this is the important part – Strzock, as well as several others mentioned in the IG Report, have been recommended for discipline, from presumably the OPR. No Huber, no indictments.
    That is lukewarm for what should be happening, which is vigorous investigation and prosecution.

    From Wrays words, it is apparent that Wray/FBI has chosen to ignore any part of the “Trump collusion” angle, and pretend everything else, e.g. spies, illegal NSA DB searches, etc., never happened.

    And so it goes. This comment, if not sent straight to spam as always, will be overlooked.

    For the record, i listened to the Wray/Holt interview twice, and my observations are my own. Will move on to DNI Coates and Sec Nielsen, who spoke today.

      “Wray said – and this is the important part – Strzock, as well as several others mentioned in the IG Report, have been recommended for discipline, from presumably the OPR. No Huber, no indictments.”

      Because that is his mandate. Sessions, Rosencrantz, Wray, Mueller, and who knows who else are on a mission to “protect the institution”. Hence the desire to keep information from We The People via our elected Representatives. Remember the two-page Nunes memo? “The sky will most definitely fall!!!” they cried. Strzok and Page texts. “The sky will fall!!!”. Emails, texts, documents, testimony of private citizens monitored and… er… facilitated by a team of FBI and DOJ lawyers and protectors… “THE SKY WILL FALL!!! THINK OF THE SOURCES!!! THINK OF THE METHODS!!!”. Unfortunately for them, many are informed thanks to a vibrant digital information flow and a TOTALLY inept MSM that is so obviously biased and purposefully obtuse and ineffective in their responsibility to the public that fewer and fewer people trust them. We haven’t seen the “FISA” and “Russia investigation” IG reports yet. At this point the ball is still rolling, IMO, and as long as a handful of freelance (Sundance, and many others) and payroll (Carter, Solomon, McCarthy, and some others) keep digging, the information will continue to flow. I have faith because, unless Trump decides it’s overall better for the country to dial things back, he is most definitely not one to back down. And I could only imagine how utterly pissed he is at what transpired in 2016 and up through today. I would be OK without indictments, per se, as long as the FULL truth is exposed. Even if that takes a few years for the chapters to be collected and spelled out in full within the pages of NYT, WaPo, and the like (those venues that reach the unbelievers) by a collection of TRUE JOURNALISTS with a conscience and a sense of duty to the American people.

      Anything Wray says about Spygate is a load of B.S. He may think he’s effectively hiding the abusive Police State tactics of the former administration and a cabal of Uniparty RINOs in order to protect whatever shield he thinks needs to be protected, but the truth is slowly trickling out. We’re very early in this process, IMO.

          What’s even more galling Hillary exposed the 20 CIA agents inside China that were murdered under her watch while she sold Special Access Programs.

          Another issue crept as well but remained hidden by Comey etal: Hillary Clinton used a server provided and owned by Google whom they serviced. Everything on that Goggle server was open to the 2.4 billion Google users.

          She and Hussein among a host of others used that Google set-up by Schmidt. Thousands of emails on that Goggle server never made it into the state department records.

          HRC used that server for the intent to conceal all her actions from the US government and NSA. Using the provided Google gmail with Hussein and everyone of her gang this has yet to make it into the public sphere. Rather than the story about a server in her home the reality was quite different.

        I think, I see what Director Wray is up to: So it’s time for another true story.

        Once upon a time, a Program Manager, pronounced his project complete and very successful while singing the praises of those involved. Sadly, the truth lied else where – The project was in fact a monumental disaster.

        The manager was doing his job by trying to whitewash a bad situation in part to avoid humiliation, in part to save his own ass and in part to prevent a bad morral problem.

        I believe Director Wray knows, he is setting on a pile of s*** and is trying to put a smiley face on it. It knows, if he does not get a handle on this problem, he may well be the next victim of the problem.

        I would grade his efforts, thus far as poor.

    Jeff Sessions has no charisma, and Trump raised Jeff to “rock star” status during the campaign. But whenever he spoke we always had shifty eyes and introverted to me.

    Jeff has mastered the “silent assassin” role, and look hardly anyone mentions his name around here anymore, even Sundance. So what Jeff is doing is working, and by staying quiet, … after everything Trump tweeted about him, and Judge Jeannine, and Hannity, etc … Jeff wins and will get Trump , give him more time. Jeff will strike a blow to Trump, has he did with Mueller Probe, and more strikes are coming. Silent Jeff stays below radar, and you guy just “talk about everything” else. And Sessions is the KEEPER of the GATE to DOJ and FBI and investigations, everything runs by him.

    Nothing Trump tweets about how disgraceful Sessions will shake some of you people. Jeff has you under his spell.

    The minute Jeff recused himself I never Jeff Sessions is a mole! And I think the President realized it too , immediately.

The man was tempered — not destroyed — by the maniacal fires of Southern reconstruction anger and revenge.

        Sessions is not involved in the Mueller Russia probe — he has recused himself. Your complaint bespeaks a micro-management of Mueller’s prosecutorial tactics. It’s outside of the recused AG’s purview. That being said, your points deliver a means for a successful appeal of Manafort’s dilemma. Sessions is involved in a lot of prosecutorial strategies that further the Trump agenda…they ultimately tower over the Mueller endeavour in consequence. Whatever Mueller wins from his shopped venue, he will ultimately lose on appeal. There is far too much near-sightedness in this Sessions argument. We must look to all else that the DoJ is achieving.

          we know Sessions recused himself 🙂 He is nevertheless responsible for the Mueller probe in that if he can’t oversee it, he cannot really do the AG job. The Mueller probe is slighting justice all over the place. Sessions seems to think it is a given he should be AG and he gets an A+ if he manages that situation well. But it is no given. The Mueller probe is a monster. If Sessions can’t oversee it then he cannot do the AG job.

Sessions refuses to dismiss the Trump hating Rosie, a quick look at the zero evidence FISA warrant signed by Rosie is amply reason to get rid of him….

          It seems that the tweet was over the top in the sting they are involved with and since then President Trump has kept his tweets a little less focused on AG Sessions and more on the 13 angry Demoncraps and the slow walking of documents through rankenstein.

        Since Huber worked with Horowitz and was aware of the IG’s report prior to it becoming public and available to Congress, he should have been prepared to prosecute those named by Congress.

        Amen! Great reply. He was sent to us for a reason! We need to work as one to support him. No matter how strong, no man can do it himself. I think he was sent by a higher power. God helps those who help themselves. Stand behind our President.

      Don’t worry yet wolf man. I see only good things to be coming here.

      Some are likely lurkers who, for some reason, are now wanting to contribute. Imo the level of discourse has upscaled. This is good. Be prepared for new perspectives and keep ur mind open and try to assume the least u can about “strangers”. The larger the fishnet the better. Right ? (There have been like 1 or 2 “seekers of attention” but they have seen themselves out it seems.) You wouldnt want everyone having the same opinion (that’d be boring 😉 but you do want interactions to be cordial and mostly enjoyable.

      Rule of thumb (1b2):
      – absent spam posting and no repeated user pattern, just ignore it. If the opinion doesn’t suit u to engage without calling out “troll”, skip it.
      This will prevent A) incorrect assumptions or B) feeding the trolls.
      – Win win

      Rule of thumb (0):
      – always be kind and respectful.

      This applies to both normal convo and what u might call “trolls”. Not only is it always safe but it stings the most when it is transporting the intended payload.
      – win win

      There are more but these are good starters and have worked very well in the past. I know u’ve been here a lot longer, so just my 2 cents.

      Ps: wish I did twitter so I could read ur threads. Some have been really insightful.

        You do me great honor. I wolfrom, and just starting. wolf man is the man. I agree with all you say. Especially about agreeing with everyone being boring. It would be very boring and how would we learn and improve ourselves, if we did not have a intelligent exchange of ideas. I live for that and it’s the main reason I love the Treehouse. Keep it clean, smart and insightful.

    My Tile For This: Keep Them Distracted!

    Clapper Admits: Obama Started All of This

    CLAPPER: With respect to the Russian meddling, if it weren’t for President Obama, we might not have done the intelligence community assessment that we did that set off a whole sequence of events which are still unfolding today, notably Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation.
    President Obama is responsible for that and it was he who tasked us to do that intelligence community assessment in the first place. I think that’s an important point when it comes to critiquing President Obama.

    RUSH: Wait a minute. Did he really mean to say this? Did he really mean to say that Obama ordered all of this? Because that’s what he said. You heard him. “President Obama is responsible for that.” “We set off a whole sequence of events which are still unfolding today.” I.e.,
    Mueller’s investigation, President Obama is responsible for that. It was he who tasked us to do that intelligence community assessment in the first place.

    Panicked Democrats Invoke Obscure House Rule to Force Action on Mueller Protection Bill

    Democrats are invoking an obscure House rule Friday to force Republicans to take action on a bill that would prevent President Trump from unilaterally removing Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

    Of course this is a desperate move and will more than likely get shot down by House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA).

    The obscure House rule has never successfully been invoked, so good luck to the Democrat losers wasting their time and resources.

    John Brennan got help from Harry Reid to push the phony ‘Trump/Russia collusion’ business on the FBI

    When it’s something this dishonest, this disgusting, this insidious . . . you have to figure Harry Reid’s fingerprints are going to be on it somewhere.

    And in the case of “Trump/Russia collusion” and the FBI’s investigation of same, you won’t be disappointed. This morning in the Wall Street Journal, indispensable columnist Kim Strassel details the extent to which this entire storyline was manufactured in 2016 by then-CIA director John Brennan – the same John Brennan who was hyperventilating this week with claims that President Trump had committed “treason” in Helsinki.

    When Brennan first started pushing the idea within the Obama Administration that the Trump campaign was in cahoots with the Russians to steal the election, even his colleagues there didn’t take him seriously. There were too many far more rational ways to look at what the Russians may or may not have been doing, and there was no real evidence of collusion. To make matters worse for Brennan, he was not permitted as CIA director to investigate American citizens. If that was going to happen, the FBI would have to do it, and they weren’t buying his story.

    So he needed to find someone else, with influence, who was willing to pressure the FBI to open an investigation – someone willing to completely disregard facts and truth and apply pressure for purely political reasons. Who is that horrible? As Strassel explains, that wasn’t hard to figure out:

    More notable, Mr. Brennan then took the lead on shaping the narrative that Russia was interfering in the election specifically to help Mr. Trump—which quickly evolved into the Trump-collusion narrative. Team Clinton was eager to make the claim, especially in light of the Democratic National Committee server hack. Numerous reports show Mr. Brennan aggressively pushing the same line internally. Their problem was that as of July 2016 even then-Director of National Intelligence James Clapper didn’t buy it. He publicly refused to say who was responsible for the hack, or ascribe motivation. Mr. Brennan also couldn’t get the FBI to sign on to the view; the bureau continued to believe Russian cyberattacks were aimed at disrupting the U.S. political system generally, not aiding Mr. Trump.

    The CIA director couldn’t himself go public with his Clinton spin—he lacked the support of the intelligence community and had to be careful not to be seen interfering in U.S. politics. So what to do? He called Harry Reid. In a late August briefing, he told the Senate minority leader that Russia was trying to help Mr. Trump win the election, and that Trump advisers might be colluding with Russia. (Two years later, no public evidence has emerged to support such a claim.)

    But the truth was irrelevant. On cue, within a few days of the briefing, Mr. Reid wrote a letter to Mr. Comey, which of course immediately became public. “The evidence of a direct connection between the Russian government and Donald Trump’s presidential campaign continues to mount,” wrote Mr. Reid, going on to float Team Clinton’s Russians-are-helping-Trump theory. Mr. Reid publicly divulged at least one of the allegations contained in the infamous Steele dossier, insisting that the FBI use “every resource available to investigate this matter.”

    The Reid letter marked the first official blast of the Brennan-Clinton collusion narrative into the open. Clinton opposition-research firm Fusion GPS followed up by briefing its media allies about the dossier it had dropped off at the FBI. On Sept. 23, Yahoo News’s Michael Isikoff ran the headline: “U.S. intel officials probe ties between Trump adviser and Kremlin.” Voilà. Not only was the collusion narrative out there, but so was evidence that the FBI was investigating.

    The goal of Brennan and Reid wasn’t just to get an FBI investigation rolling, but also to make sure the public was aware of it. That’s why Christopher Steele ran to Michael Isikoff behind the FBI’s back and pushed this story, which was in turn used by the FBI to justify to the FISA court why they supposedly needed a wiretap warrant against Carter Page.

    The point was to plant in the public’s mind the idea that Trump was under investigation for colluding with the Russians, and to let that notion set in six weeks ahead of the election. Apparently Brennan and Reid gave little consideration to what might happen with this investigation in the event Trump won the election and became the FBI director’s boss. But of course, that’s exactly what happened.

    So if you’re wondering why none of Robert Mueller’s indictments have anything to do with collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, it’s because Mueller inherited from James Comey a dishonestly conceived investigation based on absurdities invented by Obama’s CIA director and pushed by Obama’s biggest ally in the United States Senate. Mueller has to indict someone for something so he can maintain the fiction that this investigation was ever about anything real. But none of these indictments support the original premise, because the original premise is wholly unsupportable.

    The only question is when we will finally see some dot-connecting that reveals how Barack Obama himself may have been involved with pushing this phony investigation, and with seeking to wiretap a Trump campaign official based on premises he knew were completely false. The Nixon campaign used burglars to spy on their political opponents. The Obama Administration abused the authority of federal law enforcement to spy on theirs.

    Which is worse?

    The answer is obvious, and the only thing that can make it even worse than that is the realization that the sleaziest of all politicians, Harry Reid, was at the center of it.

    Just so you know: Almost all the outrage, indignation and uproar you see is completely phony

    You should know when people are putting on a show for you. And you should understand that this is what they’re doing most of the time.

    Especially political people. And that includes the political media. The ability to express outrage and indignation over the latest whatever-it-is represents a valued art form, highly respected in the hallowed halls of power and influence. If you can pull it off and get people to buy it, you can move the needle of public opinion in the moment and nothing impresses the political class and its media stenographers more than that.

    And almost all of it is completely phony, for show, affected, scripted, insincere, obligatory. Almost all of it is nonsense.

    You need to know this because it all happens for one of two purposes:

    To manipulate you into feeling as outraged as they want you to think they are.
    To give themselves cover in case you get outraged want to see that they are too.

    This business with President Trump and his comments at the Helsinki press conference are a perfect example. American politicians are not seething with outrage that Russia “meddled” with our election. Russia has always tried to screw with our politics and they all know it. But in the current political climate, feigning outrage over this supposed abomination achieves the goal of putting Trump on the spot. Politicians go on television and vent their pseudo rage at Putin’s egregious sin and then demand that Trump express similar indignation. If he does not, they accuse him of “treason” or something similarly ridiculous.

    This is all for show. They know Trump isn’t buying any of this, which is exactly why they’re play-acting their rage for you every day about it.

    Republicans are even worse. They are not outraged about the “meddling” either. They know it’s nothing. But they’re terrified because the current narrative has Trump as a Russian stooge for not caring about it (or worse, being in on it), so they have to run to the nearest TV camera and pretend to be crestfallen over Trump’s refusal to punch Putin in the face over it.

    All of this is fake.
