Indicted Senate Staffer James Wolfe Leaked a 2017 Copy of Full FISA Warrant Against Carter Page to Reporter Ali Watkins…

Connecting the Wolfe indictment to the recently released Carter Page FISA application it becomes obvious in March 2017 Senate Staffer James Wolfe sent reporter Ali Watkins a copy of the 82-page FISA Title-1 origination application.   Here’s how we know:

On/around March 16th, 2017, the Senate Intelligence Committee requested a copy of the FISA application used against Carter Page. How do we know this? Because a part of the indictment against James Wolfe tells us what took place.

Page #5 of the Wolfe indictment (unsealed in June 2018) describes Reporter #2 Ali Watkins.

Page #6 describes one of the leaks; one of the very specific leaks by Wolfe to Watkins. Read carefully:

That document described is clearly the FISA application used against Carter Page that was disclosed Saturday. Note the description (above) and the date of the FISC release disclosed: March, 17th, 2017FISC CLERK COPY STAMP page 83

♦Yes, that means the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (SSCI) has had the FISA application against Carter Page in their possession since March 2017.

Next: Note the FISA application (original first application) is 83 pages, with a blank page. That’s 82 pages total.

Note page #6 of the Wolfe indictment: “82 text messages” corresponds with James Wolfe texting 82 images of the FISA application to Ali Watkins. Wolfe likely took pictures of each application page and sent them to Ms. Watkins.

Important to note: depending on how the FISA copy was processed by the DOJ(?), and considering this was to the Senate Intel Committee, it is likely the SSCI copy was not heavily redacted (if at all).

♦Yes, that means reporter Ali Watkins (Buzzfeed then New York Times) has had a copy of the original FISA application against Carter Page since March 17th, 2017.

♦Yes, that also means the U.S. DOJ has known since December 15th, 2017, that SSCI Chief Staffer James Wolfe leaked the FISA application to the media in March 2017.

♦Yes, that also means the U.S. DOJ has known the media has been holding a copy of the original FISA application since March 17th, 2017.

Further….

SSCI Chairman Richard Burr and SSCI Vice-Chair Mark Warner are “Gang-of-Eight” intelligence oversight members.

They have top level security clearances, so they could/would be permitted to see the FISC release w/out redactions.

However, in March 2017, at the time this application was sent to the SSCI, there was also an ongoing Intelligence Community leak investigation taking place. Actually, more like a “leak hunt”. This ongoing “leak hunt”, in connection to the later capture of James Wolfe, becomes a more important consideration when you think about the recent FISA application public release.

From the Wolfe indictment we discover: On December 15th, 2017 James Wolfe was busted; the FBI had him dead-to-rights. However, the grand jury proceedings didn’t start until May 3rd, 2018; and the indictment was sealed until June 7th, 2018. That means six months passed between busting Wolfe on Dec. 15th, 2017, and indicting Wolfe on June 7th, 2018.

It is difficult to gain a search and seizure warrant on a journalist. However, it is noted Reporter #2, Ms. Ali Watkins, was identified and an appropriate search warrant was authorized by the court. Ms. Watkins was notified after execution of the search warrant. February 13, 2018:

RECAP: Wolfe FBI interview 12/15/17; one search warrant executed Jan-Feb 2018; grand jury seated May 2018; indictment/arrest of Wolfe June 2018

Here is where it gets interesting. Back to the FISC application released. Remember, we must think of this release in four segments:

♦Original application – Oct ’16
♦Renewal – Jan ’17
♦Renewal – April ’17
♦Renewal – June ’17

However, when the FISA application was released publicly, *they* (unknown) released the March 17th, 2017 copy (the one sent to the SSCI) of the original.

Why release (segment #1) from the March 17th, 2017, copy?

The answer to that question goes back to the leak hunting taking place on/around March 17th, 2017, when the FISA application was first released to the SSCI.

*They* (again, unknown) likely put a subtle leak tracer in the FISC application when it was released. A slight variation in the copy sent to the SSCI that would help the leak hunters identify the leak, if the tracer information was found in media reporting.

So there is something slightly different about the March 17th, 2017, version of the Carter Page FISA application…. than the unmodified original version held at the FISC.

That is why the publicly released version has segment #1 dated as March 17th, 2017. Whoever made the decision to release the application needed to publicly release the same version as was previously used to track leakers.

NOTE: It is highly likely one of the “leak tracers” was to change the dates within the FISA application and/or the FISA renewal(s).  This explains why the dates are all redacted in the recent release:

.

Obviously, given the recent arrest of James Wolfe, and the ongoing hunt for more leakers, in hindsight we can see the justice value in maintaining this process. Indeed there were/are people within the intelligence apparatus that are leaking information. Those leakers are being hunted.

However, why was the Senate Intel Committee requesting the FISA application in the first place? (Back in March 2017) What was happening around the time the SSCI was making the requests? And why was the intelligence community (IC) so willing to comply with the SSCI request?

After all, the House Permanent Select Committee and the House Judiciary Committee had to threaten the Justice Department just to see a copy in January 2018. Why was the same apparatus so forthcoming in 2017 to the Senate Intelligence Committee?

Enter, former SSCI Chairman Dan Coats – now 2017 Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) in charge of the overall IC and stopping dangerous leaks. Apparently, and not coincidentally, Coats was confirmed two days before the March 17th, 2017, FISA application was released to the Senate Intel Committee.

In 2017 DNI Dan Coats is VERY closely connected to NSA Director Admiral Mike Rogers. Both took/take their responsibilities *very* seriously. You could say, they partnered.

DNI Coats and NSA Rogers worked together on *all* the FISA concerns.

Coats/Rogers collective endeavors led to, and included, the April 2017 release of a brutal 99-page FISC review of FISA abuses. Coats and Rogers made the FISC ruling a matter of public record.

Their nemesis per se’, are corrupt politicians like SSCI Vice-Chairman Mark Warner who, on the same date (March 17th, 2017), was having covert contact with Christopher Steele via lobbyist Adam Waldman and former SSCI staffer Daniel Jones. READ:

.

NOTE:

Common sense and our own independent research tells us that Dan Coats and Admiral Rogers knew the SSCI was corrupt, dangerous and likely leaking just to damage President Trump and protect their deep state interests. That’s why the March 17th, 2017, released FISA application was seeded to trace a leaker.

That March 17th, 2017, SSCI leak hunt eventually led to the capture of James Wolfe, who sent reporter Ali Watkins 82 picture text messages (on the day he took custody) distributing the Carter Page FISA application to the media.

Ms. Ali Watkins, while sleeping with James Wolfe and receiving leaks as compensation, was working for Buzzfeed at the time, and wrote this.  Ms. Watkins then went on to work for the New York Times.

Now remember, keeping all their activity in mind, AFTER March 17th, 2017, Ali Watkins held a copy of the Carter Page FISA application while she worked at both Buzzfeed and the New York Times.  She knew the substance, the specific details, of the actual FISA application; and as a consequence so too did her employer(s).  However, despite this actual knowledge Ms. Watkins and her colleagues continued to push a narrative, and write articles, that were factually false against the FISA application evidence she was holding.

♦ Meanwhile, after March 17th, 2017, Senate Intelligence Chairman Mark Warner also knew the substance of the Carter Page application as it was distributed to his committee.  Yet he too continued to push a narrative what was fundamentally different from the first-hand information he reviewed.

We always knew Warner held a conflict; however, we had no idea the scope of the conflict he was concealing.  Consider this statement from May of this year:

(LINK)

According to Mark Warner, it would be “irresponsible” and “potentially illegal” for congressional oversight to keep demanding records from the FBI and DOJ about their spying and surveillance activity against the campaign of Donald Trump… wait, what?

Senator Mark Warner was caught text messaging with DC Lawyer Adam Waldman in the spring of 2017 (his first assignment).   Waldman was the lawyer for the interests of Christopher Steele – the author of the dossier.  Warner was doing this at exactly the same time he was requesting and receiving the Carter Page FISA application.

While Adam Waldman was working as an intermediary putting Senator Warner and Christopher Steele in contact with each-other.  Simultaneously Waldman was also representing the interests of… wait for it,…. Russian billionaire Oleg Deripaska.

Derispaska was the Russian person approached by Andrew McCabe and Peter Strzok and asked to assist in creating dirt on the Trump campaign, via Paul Manafort.

You see, Senator Mark Warner had/has a vested interest in making sure that no-one ever gets to the bottom of the 2016 political weaponization, spying and surveillance operation.

Senator Mark Warner was a participant in the execution of the “insurance policy” trying to remove President Trump via the Russian Collusion narrative.

Senator Feinstein’s 2016 senior staffer (with Gang-of-Eight security clearance) was Dan Jones.  It was recently revealed that Dan Jones contracted with Christopher Steele to continue work on the Russia conspiracy narrative after the 2016 election, and raised over $50 million toward the ideological goals of removing President Trump. {See Here}

Staffer Dan Jones surfaces in the text messages from Feinstein’s replacement on the Gang-of-Eight, Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman, Mark Warner {See Here}

Senator Warner was texting with Adam Waldman about setting up a meeting with Chris Steele.  Waldman is a lobbyist/lawyer with a $40,000 monthly retainer to represent the U.S. interests of Russian billionaire Oleg V. Deripaska.

Senator Mark Warner was trying to set up a covert meeting.  In the text messages Adam Waldman is telling Senator Warner that Chris Steele will not meet with him without a written letter (request) from the Senate Intelligence Committee.  Senator Warner didn’t want the Republican members to know about the meeting.  Chris Steele knew this was a partisan political set-up and was refusing to meet unilaterally with Senator Warner.   His lawyer Adam Waldman was playing the go-between:

That “Dan Jones”, mentioned above, talking with Chris Steele and told to go to see Senator Warner, is the former senate staffer Dan Jones, who was previously attached to Dianne Feinstein.

Simultaneously, while working to connect Senator Warner to Christopher Steele, Adam Waldman is representing Oleg Deripaska:

(Source Link) 

Oleg Deripaska was a source of intelligence information within the John Brennan intelligence community efforts throughout 2016. This is the same intersection of  characters that circle around Stefan Halper.

John Solomon – […] Deripaska also appears to be one of the first Russians the FBI asked for help when it began investigating the now-infamous Fusion GPS “Steele Dossier.” Waldman, his American lawyer until the sanctions hit, gave me a detailed account, some of which U.S. officials confirm separately.

Two months before Trump was elected president, Deripaska was in New York as part of Russia’s United Nations delegation when three FBI agents awakened him in his home; at least one agent had worked with Deripaska on the aborted effort to rescue Levinson. During an hour-long visit, the agents posited a theory that Trump’s campaign was secretly colluding with Russia to hijack the U.S. election. (more)

Now, for more motive for Senator Warner to keep sunlight from the operation, listen carefully to the opening statement from former CIA Director John Brennan May 23rd, 2017, during his testimony to congress.

Pay very close attention to the segment at 13:35 of this video of Brennan’s testimony:

Brennan: [13:35] “Third, through the so-called Gang-of-Eight process we kept congress apprised of these issues as we identified them.”

“Again, in consultation with the White House, I PERSONALLY briefed the full details of our understanding of Russian attempts to interfere in the election to congressional leadership; specifically: Senators Harry Reid, Mitch McConnell, Dianne Feinstein and Richard Burr; and to representatives Paul Ryan, Nancy Pelosi, Devin Nunes and Adam Schiff between 11th August and 6th September [2016], I provided the same briefing to each of the gang of eight members.

“Given the highly sensitive nature of what was an active counter-intelligence case [that means the FBI], involving an ongoing Russian effort, to interfere in our presidential election, the full details of what we knew at the time were shared only with those members of congress; each of whom was accompanied by one senior staff member.”…

Here’s the James Wolfe indictment:

      In this instance Watkins and the NYT may be cohorts. Did they in any way engage in a conspiracy to get these documents by the exploitation of Wolfe? Are we looking at espionage here; espionage to monetize classified information for financial gain?

      Watkins and her employer appear to be the aggressor in this. If so, one may not be correct to characterize this as “a leak.”

      Could this instead be a conspiracy to steal classified information and monetize it for personal and corporate gain?

      I wonder.

        I believe this is exactly where the story is headed. Ali Watkins was using the possession of this FISA app as her resume builder and leverage to get the job she wanted. There is a very good chance that she was acting as a source for FISA information in the meantime in order to send the signal to potential employers that she was in possession of valuable information.

        I think Watkins was a source for a Washington Post article from Jan 18 discussing the FISA. That’s where the incorrect date of the first FISA submission pops up (Oct 19th vs Oct 21st). Shortly after that the FBI acted and sought a warrant to seize her communications. It is unusual to seek that type of warrant for a journalist so it is reasonable to assume that the warrant was due to her acting as a source not a journalist. Further proof of this is that the media went into outrage mode for a short time but you don’t hear about it anymore. There is no way they would let that go unless they knew or suspect that she is indefensible. “Trump admin attacking the press” is a juicy way to spin this but they have completely let the story slide. The last bit of evidence that Watkins was the source of this article is that very shortly after the FBI seized her records Grassley sends a public letter identifying the correct date of the first FISA app (Feb 28, 2018).

        For those wondering why Wolfe was not charged with leaking (only lying to FBI) I’m fairly certain at this point that they are trying to pin Watkins and not Wolfe as the source of the Jan WaPo article.

        The two media entities that hired her should be asked if they based that decision on knowledge of her possession of this particular information. I’m curious if there is any basis for action if there is explicit proof of this. It seems reasonable to assume so since they are essentially paying for classified information which surely is illegal.

        I do not understand your point in putting a spin to this and projecting Wolfe as a “victim”. The guy is of retirement age and not someone wet behind his years.
        If anything, I would put him in the category of Ted Kennedy, Bill Clinton, Weinstein, etc. and their ilk.

        If I recall, I read that Wolfe tried to get in some other reporters panty but she did not encourage his behavior and she was cut out of any access.

        I submit that Trump would easier fire someone than take his first piss in the morning. I cam convinced that Sessions is doing stellar work behind the scenes and Trump is well aware of what is going on.

      Yours might be the observation & question of the century.

      If Sundance is wrong with any of his suggestions or stated conclusions, I have yet to see anyone – on any news / opinion show or website – say so or write as much using any facts or reasonable rationale to support their assertions.

      In fact, the conspicuous dearth of references to the revelations in this blog belies the superior analytical quality of research used and laid out in Sundance’s myriad articles on the series of outrageous and vile political scandals occurring among officials and deep state personnel primarily from within the Obozo Adminstration, the DNC, and Clinton Campaign organization.

      IMHO we in The Last Refuge are witnessing the storm from within the Eye, where it’s always relatively quiet. The Eye is sunny, with hardly any winds – the location of the Truth. Outside of the Eye, the raging tumult of evil creates darkness and chaos, where the forces of evil compete with each other to produce the worst lies, the most extreme spin, divisiveness and violence.

    As to RR & the last FISA renewal:

    https://themarketswork.com/2018/07/01/the-full-significance-of-rosensteins-statement/
    “(DAG RR): …
    …We sit down with a team of attorneys from the Department of Justice. All of whom review that and provide a briefing for us for what’s in it. And I’ve reviewed that one in some detail, and I can tell you the information about that doesn’t match with my understanding of the one that I signed, but I think it’s appropriate to let the Inspector General complete that investigation. These are serious allegations. I don’t do the investigation — I’m not the affiant. I’m reviewing the finished product, sir.

    ….

    “And here we have the full significance of Rosenstein’s statement.

    Rosenstein was stating that what he’d been formally briefed on by DOJ lawyers was different than what had been disclosed in any of the three Congressional Memos detailing the FISA Application.

    What Rosenstein was formally briefed on was different than the FISA materials put before the House and Senate Intelligence Committees by the DOJ.”

      Think about what Rosenstein said. He was not the affiant (probably wrong word). He, Rosenstein, was not the one affirming the truth of the statements contained in the application, the SSA was. He was affirming that the briefing he received about the application was correct, not the application itself.

      Rosenstein also under oath would not state whether he had read the application itself or not. I think this is key because Rosenstein also admitted that this exact issue is being investigated and that he is ready to abide by the investigation’s findings but is very comfortable with whatever they may be. Rosenstein not only knows what happened, I am betting that Rosenstein made it happen. Why?

      As we have seen throughout the investigation so far, everyone involved has selective faulty memory syndrome. Strzok, Comey, McCabe… and I am sure the list goes on and on. The IG was already investigating the Hillary e-mail issue and we saw that in effect throughout, and no doubt Rosenstein was seeing the reports himself.

      My guess? Rosenstein knew that the Strzok text messages would soon be released as we know that Page had already in June told the IG that she had proof McCabe told her to leak. The IG sees a crime and reports to Rosenstein.

      The FISA authority is good for 90 days, and yet the last one was sought a month early in June vs the July timeframe when it would have expired. Someone suggests that it is sought early and the SSA agent does what? He comes in, gives the briefing to Rosenstein and commits a crime right in front of the Assistant Attorney General. Then, within the next 30 days Strzok is removed from his position, the texts are published. But Strzok is caught and may not know it. No more faulty memory issues because we have Rosenstein himself placing himself right in the middle of this to testify against the FBI in general, the DOJ in general, and the SSA in particular. It is now Rosenstein’s word against theirs. And his memory is perfect.

      I for one believe that I am going to be immensely impressed with Rosenstein before this is all over. Because if what he did above is true, he will have sacrificed his entire career to uphold the law. He will never be confirmed to another position as long as it requires senate approval. This is his last hoorah.

          Because they are still identifying conspirators and accomplices on more fronts than they have ever worked before. Basically, the Obama crew Cloward-Pivenned the DOJ and the FBI, overwhelming both agencies with internal political corruption on a scale no one has seen before.

          Most youngsters fresh out of law school don’t join these agencies because they want to be corrupt political players, and the reality that what they joined was headed by a corrupted cabal with no love of country or the law is a hard bit to choke down. Some inside saw and felt helpless, some undoubtedly clueless, others in long-term denial, some decided to just go with the flow and try not to do anything illegal personally, others stopped caring and just got out.

          Sessions now has a huge mess to sort through. Heck, go back and read the IG;s report just on improper leaking from the FBI. EVERYONE was in on it, seemingly. And that’s just the leaks aspect.

          So, long way around to my answer to your question: because they are still lining bees, following leads, continuing to identify bad guys they didn’t know about. And it goes in a hundred different directions. And even that doesn’t even begin to touch the question “but what about all the legitimate cases they worked on that are now open to examination after their corruption is made public? What do we do, just open the federal prisons?”

          And all the above is just the domestic side. What about the foreign? t’s all FUBAR like no one has ever seen FUBAR before. It’s so bad no one would believe it if it was all put out at once, so it is sent out in dribbles and drabs. But the big reveal is coming. And that is when it gets really dangerous.

            I am cutting Rosenstein some slack. First, if he is being honest and straightforward this has to be the most stressful job in America right now, and he is forfeiting any future role higher up the DOJ ladder including possibly being seated as a Federal Judge.

            The amount of mental energy that he must be expending on a daily basis as he tries to wrap his mind around the depth and width of the corruption monster he sits amidst has to be staggering. This is made all the more stressful because he has to play the middle role, meaning the DOJ is conducting business as usual, so don’t anyone worry about the crimes they committed in the past, while at the same time gathering more and more evidence.

            Take the McCabe perjury issue. Look how much evidence they gathered on McCabe before they acted. FOUR times he committed perjury. FOUR times they gave him the opportunity to come clean and FOUR times McCabe dug that hole deeper. And they allowed him to.

            The DOJ and IG didn’t destroy McCabe, McCabe destroyed McCabe. Over and over again. I think Strzok just did the same thing. No one will ever see that FISA app because one has NEVER been released before. EVER. The media has had it for over a year and a half and they have never leaked which SSA signed it. Not once. Because they didn’t release it, there is no doubt in my mind it was Strzok, and Strzok just stated under oath it was not him….

      Rosenstein bargained for his job with Trump. He offered to arrange to fire Comey if he could stay. He fired Comey after giving Trump the letter supporting the decision. Then Rosenstein hired Mueller to INVESTIGATE TRUMP AND ONLY TRUMP for any collusion with Russia during the election. Hillary could have been carrying on an affair with Putin and not be investigated by Mueller.

    Indictment definition: A formal accusation of serious wrongdoing, sought by a federal prosecutor, voted on by a grand jury, which usually leads to a felony arrest. Only grand juries hand down indictments. Sealing indictments is a legal procedure done so that the subject of the indictment doesn’t know they’re about to be arrested.

    Not sure if you have the time, but a little backwards engineering may be in order. Go back and look at the reporting on the Steel dossier around December of ’17 as well as Jan of ’17 and I bet you will find additional articles who use the same dates that Watson did. This will mean that they too got the same information which is slightly different from the rest of the narrative and will confirm your suspicions on the other reporters.

      That is precisely the angle I took and I spent a couple of hours looking into it. I will throw out what I found in case it helps anyone else who is looking into it. I didn’t find Watkins directly publishing any article on the FISA with any date. The only info she used in her articles was the bit about Page working with the FBI previously. This makes sense though because she would not want to reveal that she had a copy of the FISA and suddenly publishing a detailed story would have raised some serious questions and suspicions.

      I think Watkins was acting as a source for Ellen Nakashima at the Washington Post who is tagged with two important stories about the FISA. The first story (April 2017) actually broke the news that the FISA existed. Importantly that story got the date completely wrong as it claimed the FISA started in summer 2016. The second story had much more detail including the date being off by 2 days.

      The spin off question I have from looking into this is whether or not Ellen Nakashima is Reporter #1 in the Wolfe indictment. Sundance’s original take on it was that Reporter #1 was Manu from CNN but I haven’t taken the time to compare the evidence for each or look to see if that take was later changed. Based on just looking at this it seemed a reasonable conclusion to think Wolfe also leaked to Nakashima the existence of the FISA. The dates from the indictment seem to match and it makes sense to me that Wolfe would also leak to someone else other than Watkins in order to throw off the scent a bit. That leak was much less detailed (4 texts I think vs 82 for Watkins) which matches the resulting story from Nakashima.

      Until this Uniparty system is crushed, we the people only get to choose between the criminals they allow to run.

      (Independent Party might be just another set of crooks looking to get into big league crookedness.)

      So how do you propose that we change that?

      Once the crook of choice gets into Congress, we the people have no control over the House rules and Senate rules and over who gets on which comittee when.

      We have a vote. We try to choose lesser of evils. After that we are stuck,

      Rarely, if we luck up and get a candidate elected that actually meant what he said—it will take him years of go along to get along to climb up it some important enough comittee that he can even be heard, not silenced nor culled by lack of campaign financing, controlled in large part by the bigger wigs in the parties.

      Who knows what all she/he must do or overlook to get there?

        I believe that the Founding Fathers expected the citizens to be fully involved with the running of government as well as the vetting and selecting candidates for elected office. The problems all began when the citizens of the Republic became nothing but serial voters and not fully involved citizens, preferring to spend their lives on frivolity and the making of money, instead of securing their freedoms.

        Fast forward 200+ years and the results of the neglect are being made starkly clear that the Republic is almost, if not completely, lost due to selfishness and total neglect of the Constitution. Ask yourself how abortion was ever considered to have been written into the Constitution or how same sex marriage was condoned by the Supreme Court without a massive uprising by the moral citizens of the Republic.

        It was one of the Founding Fathers that declared that they had given the people of these United States a Republic as long as the people kept it. Well the results are in, they, the people, did not care enough about freedom to keep their Republic and now it has been destroyed by those who want to RULE and not GOVERN that now hold the whip over a bewildered people.

        To get the Republic back is going to take more than just voting but a total change in attitude toward working to bring it back by being INVOLVED in every aspect of selecting, vetting, promoting and funding the type of people who want to help govern a Republic and not Rule a Dictatorship! Your choice.

    In Hollywood, the papparazi have evolved and now work in teams. In a nutshell, they figure out through sources where the celebrity is, and descend with a team. Often a “fender-bender” team. They know the celebrity is leaving a nightclub and with advance knowledge stage an accident, a fender bender and already be there with the cameras rolling with lots of footage to sell to the tabloids. The mainstream news is now doing the exact same thing. That is where we are with MSMprocessed news. Go organic.

It’s easy to make fun of him, but he in the end was just out trying to put together a living as a consulting expert and there is nothing wrong with that. ALSO, he is a private citizen of the United States and he has rights.

      Find out who prepared the list of “Foreign Policy Advisors” for Trump in April 2016 and maybe this could be researched. Sessions was the “shepherd” in the campaign of at least two of the “advisors” on the list, CARTER PAGE and GEORGE PAPADOPOULOS. I linked to two videos about Papadopoulos on this thread that indicate Papadopoulos had contacts with suspected Russian sources for the Dossier commissioned by Hillary Clinton.

      So true Payday. I believe that if President Trump successfully accumulates more political power after the midterms he might possibly give Sessions the choice of retiring with compliments from the CiC and thanks from a grateful nation – OR – he will be (politely) “dismissed”.
      Sessions would pick the first option if this scenario came to pass, I believe.

  27. Lactantius says:

    Aristotle, Virgil and Dante all visited political corruption many centuries ago.

    In Dante’s Inferno, the poet finds he is lost in the “dark woods” and away for the “straight way.” He begins to climb a mountain, but encounters three beasts, one of whom is fraud and malice. The beasts force the poet back into darkness and error. Eventually, the poet is led to the gates of Hell where he reads the words: “Abandon all hope, ye who enter here.” Before entering, the poet hears the cries of anguish coming from the Uncommitted, the Opportunists, and the Angels who took no sides. These souls are neither in Hell nor outside of it. They are in Limbo where spiritual stagnation abides.

    The poet undertakes a tour of the circles of Hell. The Eighth Circle is called Malebolge which consists of ten concentric ditches where the Malicious and Fraudulent are sorted out. The fifth ditch (Bolgia 5) is for the corrupt politicians who are up to their necks in boiling pitch and guarded over by Malebranche who tear them to pieces with their talons if the corrupt come too far out of the boiling pitch.

    Human nature keeps repeating itself. We are learning about the limbo associated with rule of law where the Uncommitted, the Opportunists and the Angels who straddle taking sides are playing out ancient themes.

    Plutarch (1st century AD) wrote in “On the Delay of Divine Vengeance” : “Thus, I do not see what use there is in those mills of the gods said to grind so late as to render punishment hard to be recognized, and to make wickedness fearless.”

    Again, the age-old complaint that justice delayed is justice denied. If the millstones of the gods are equated with endless political investigation, then we may find ourselves up to our necks in “granular” details while every grain is examined, argued and set aside until time moves on.

    Look for delay, delay, delay, obfuscate and dissemble. Everything is being measured by “the attention span of a gnat.” White Water, Benghazi, Lois Lerner, and you name it were all cases of death by the boredom of gnats.

    We are so dramatically divided as a people at this time, that my sense is that this particular circus of corruption will not soon go away. I credit the primacy of social media as making the difference. If the reporting and interest are sustained, resolution will be forced to follow.

    Maybe this has been mentioned already; haven’t had time yet to read the hundreds of comments. But it seems as if pulling the security clearances of the Obama IC officials might help to plug some of these leaks. Wouldn’t it be a more serious crime to leak to someone without top secret security clearance versus someone who has it, like Brennan? This is a perfectly good reason to pull their clearances, if they’re receiving and blabbing and politicizing information that they’re still getting from within the IC, despite how the mainstream media and the Democrats are spinning it.

    Elijah Cummings has the gall to criticize Trump for letting Flynn keep his clearance for a few weeks after Flynn allegedly “lied” to the IC. At the same time, he’s arguing against pulling the clearances of Brennan and Clapper after months and after BOTH of them have perjured themselves to Congress! Those are facts, too. Flynn lying is not.

  39. Carter Page was making the rounds again on tv and I just don’t get him? He was doing his usual sweaty, head shaking, eye-brow raising, twiching, and smirking act to the point I threw one of my slippers at the TV in frustration. I was thinking these were nervous ticks or dysphonia. I then got on the PC to look at some of his conferences and speeches on youtube and did not exhibit any of these mannerisms or ticks. He was quite normal in his interactions. When Tucker Carlson brings up his Annapolis military education he quickly changes the subject. When his military service is brought up he quickly changes the subject. When he is asked about prior contact with the IC he quickly changes the subject. When he is asked about being a veteran and being smeared, he changes the subject.
    His background screams US IC recruit/asset. I also think Russian intelligence would presume he was US IC during his 10 years in Russia. They wouldn’t waste their time recruiting him as they would assume he is a double agent. But they would keep an eye on him. He cooperates with the FBI from 2013-2016 to arrest 2 russian spies in the NY case who thought he was an idiot or goofball. Buryakov was arrested in Jan 2015!!! In July 2016 Page is still traveling back to russia for conferences. How the hell does this happen??? The russians would know that he set them up in the 2013 case. Burykov was arrested in Jan 2015. Sporyshev and Podobnyy had diplomatic immunity and left around this time. Why would the russians let Page into Russia? Why would the FBI let him go? WTF is going on with both US and russian IC???? If he helped setup 2 russian spys I would assume his life would be in jeopardy. He has no problem traveleing there. The FBI has no problem with him going.. Russia welcomes him open arms. Am I missing something here???? NY case handled by Eric Holder, Preet Bahara, John Carlin. All familiar names. Any thoughts???

      The Russians are willing to give up 2 low level operatives to improve the bona-fides of Page.
      In reality, Page is a triple agent, and still working for the FBI.
      The Russians think he is working for them.
      The FBI know that Page is in reality their agent.
      Does that explain the contradictions ?
