Corrupt Republican Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr Defending FISA Application, Trying to Hide SSCI Involvement in FISA “Spygate”…

The Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (SSCI) is the same committee that Michael Caputo told: “God damn you to hell“, and for a very good reason.  The entire committee is corrupt from top to bottom; especially Chairman Richard Burr and member Marco Rubio.

The latest evidence therein comes from Chairman Burr defending the insufferably corrupt FISA application that was used against U.S. person Carter Page:

(Via CNN) […] “I don’t think I ever expressed that I thought the FISA application came up short,” Burr said when asked about House Republican memo alleging FBI and Justice Department abuses of the FISA process. “There (were) sound reasons as to why judges issued the FISA.”

Burr’s comments once again put him at odds with House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, who spearheaded the memo on FISA abuses. (read more)

The motives for Burr’s duplicity here are obvious. The entire apparatus of the media has avoided the explosive revelation of the unredacted FISA application being delivered to the committee on March 17, 2017, because the consequences from admitting the truth are catastrophic to the ongoing narrative.

The committee requested and received the FISA application on March 17th, 2017. [Full Backstory Here] On the same day, the indicted Security Staffer for the committee, James Wolfe, leaked the 82 page application in a series of 82 photographic text messages (one picture per page) to his concubine reporter, Ali Watkins.

Note: why would Wolfe take pictures of fully redacted pages?  He wouldn’t.  That implies it is likely this March 17th, 2017, copy was not heavily redacted, if at all.

What everyone seems to overlook, is how easily the intelligence apparatus handed over the FISA application on March 17th, 2017; yet, the House Judiciary Committee (Goodlatte), House Intelligence Committee (Nunes), and Senate Judiciary Committee (Grassley), had to demand and threaten to sue the DOJ in December, January and February 2018 to see it.

Why the difference in compliance?

My ongoing suspicion is that someone within the IC, likely ODNI Dan Coats and NSA Director Admiral Mike Rogers, knew the Senate Intelligence Committee was fully compromised; and they used the March 17, 2017, copy production as bait in their successful leak hunt. [Ultimately culminating in the indictment of Wolfe]

I have no doubt the March 17th, 2017, produced copy has an intentionally changed date of the FISA application.

The date on the original FISC copy is October 21st, 2016. That is when it was approved by Judge Rosemary Collyer. That is the correct date.

However, the Washington Post first reported on the FISA application, from leaked sources, with an origination date of October 19th, 2016:

I will bet you a donut the March 17th copy of the FISA application has October 19th, 2016, as the leak tracer within it.

Changing dates is the same approach they used to catch the House Intelligence leak [busting CNN congressional corespondent Manu Raju] with Donald Trump Jr’s testimony.

The false CNN article stated their information was based on a read-out of the Trump Jr. email provided by an unnamed source. Most likely the source was on the Democratic side of the House Intelligence Committee, which interviewed Trump Jr. earlier this week.

However, the entire substance of the leaked email is false.  The entire story CNN ran with all morning is FAKE NEWS. –SEE HERE– and –SEE HERE–  They used the date Sept. 4th.

The actual date of the email, from an innocuous Trump supporter, was September 14th, a day after the documents were made public by WikiLeaks.  (more)

The use of dates to capture leak targets is likely why all the dates on the publicly released FISA application are redacted.  It is highly likely that Manu Raju is under an approved surveillance and search warrant based on the result above.  This is exactly what the FBI did with reporter Ali Watkins.  She wasn’t notified until long after the surveillance began:

That ongoing leak hunt approach will also be a potential reason why the White House might continue stalling the requests to release any unredacted original copies. If the White House declassifies the FISA application; all of those who used the copies containing leak tracers will immediately know their goose-is-cooked.

The Senate Select Committee on Intelligence is thoroughly corrupt; this includes all republicans and all democrats:

That is why this committee is so vested in defending the ongoing interests of the Deep State.  However, the knowledge they were trapped with the use of the leak-tracer FISA application at least gives us a glimmer of optimism that something is likely to break soon.   If it wasn’t going to happen relatively soon, the IC (almost guaranteed to be DNI Coats) would never have released the FISA application last week.

Watch the ongoing news-cycle.  If the original unredacted version of the FISA application is going to be released; that will indicate the FBI is prepared to move on the leak captures.

Again, here’s the FISA Application.

Again, here’s the Wolfe Indictment.

Again, here’s a time/date listing of the corrupt activity taking place by Vice-Chairman Mark  Warner at the same time the March 17, 2017, FISA application was released to the SSCI:

              Absolutely correct. Rush specifically stated many times that he was not going to endorse any candidate. And he never did. Early on, he indicated that Cruz was the most consistently conservative among the bunch. But he also expressed a positive impression of Trump’s refusal to bow to political correctness and ability to play the Media, despite Rush’s uncertainty whether Trump would stay in the race.

              People mistakenly infer that Rush speaking positively about a candidate is an endorsement of that candidate, but that’s not correct.

              This past election, Rush saw what we all saw. The other candidates acted very ugly towards DJT, and it became obvious that the GOP was far less concerned about their voters than their benefactors.

He’s been like that since I first heard him on the radio, ca 1983. Yes, that’s right, before his show was nationally syndicated.

      We’ve pushed Congressional term limits –six 2-year House terms, two 6-year Senate terms per incumbent– for forty years. Both Wilson’s Amendment XVI and XVII (1913) should be repealed instanter.

      Meantime, enact Amendment XXVIII to expand Article III, Section 1 by depoliticizing John Marshal’s egregiously overreaching Supreme Court: First, select nominees from a pre-qualified pool of thirty (30) potential nominees; second, specify 18-year terms from ages 40 to 72, subject to two 6-year Votes of Confidence plus Recall for cause; third, decree that no one President may appoint more than two (2) Justices, filling additional vacancies with interim vs. permanent incumbents from the pool.

      Simple procedural details make this Amendment XXVIII no more than 200+ words. In terms of removing hyper-partisan incentives, precluding undue Executive Branch influence, abolishing Marshal’s super-legislative kritarchy (“rule by judges”, not at all the same thing as Rule of Law), these long-overdue if rudimentary safeguards are critical to American democracy.

Of course, if you wanted to be a conspiracy theorist you would say maybe someone manufactured a 302 of the meeting to say he told them about something else. That was grounds for a warrrant. Surely that wouldn’t happen, right? There is just no knowing what the hell is going on without someone picking through this with a fine tooth comb and hopefully Horowitz is doing that.

        Meanwhile, with the surveillance capabilities from the warrant, and if it is true they get 3 hops or whatever it is, they know EVERYTHING. and I mean, EVERYTHING.

          If I’m right about the degree of abuse of IC that has occurred – that there has been a shocking amount of abuse of sources and methods – then domestic operations will be the least of their worries, although I think they ARE worried about them.

          I have some theories on the abuse. I’ll just bullet-point them.

          – There are likely exceptions for the CIA which allow domestic operations, such as TRAINING. Those will have been heavily abused.

          – This matches up with the ages of people I suspect as being trainee assets, and their proximity to universities, new young hires in companies, interns, etc. David Hogg is a nice PUBLIC example.

          – Much of this was a long time ago, so I think this problem is NOT recent.

          – Reagan appears to have been an impediment for KGB-CIA, so I think they stepped up their push for domestic operations with his election.

          – I believe that KGB-CIA likely sweet-talked the corrupt SSCI into allowing domestic training operations that furthered the “implementation” of passed law.

          – I believe some of the ops are now really toxic – basically leverage operations. Techniques normally used abroad are used domestically against individuals and organizations. The fact that they are IC gives them a patina of righteousness, but they are still BLACKMAIL and the like.

          – The reason these ops are so nasty and why I think the undermining idea originated from KGB-CIA and not “white hat” CIA is that they seem designed for the success of their toxic downsides as well as their long-term advancement of Soviet interests. They UNDERMINE America, but are covered in good intentions. Very “Obama”.

          – I also believe that certain places domestically have been negotiated as safe territory for CIA operations. Again, this had some plausible reason, I’m sure, but notice how it weakened the FBI, and those places. THAT was one of the desired outcomes.

          – I believe they are regrouping now. I don’t know what Haspel is doing to rein these people in, if anything, or to terminate the domestic ops they run, but I think they’re still pulling some strings.

          – I believe that taking down Strzok and McCabe was a HUGE win against them. CIA should not be running FBI. PERIOD.

          – Lotta things I can’t say, but I’m certain that they were running stuff here, and it was UGLY. Gonna be interesting.

          The CIA can operate domestically as long as someone from the FBI is along for the ride. This started as Counterintelligence, so CIA agent Strzok was running things as the CIA’s man in the FBI under the 1996 statute requiring personnel exchanges between the agencies.

          STEALTH JEFF has a good rolled thread here – https://threadreaderapp.com/thread/1021523277091627008.html
          parts –
          Rand Paul went to the WH publicly today to suddenly URGE President Trump to yank the security clearances of Clapper, Brennan & other coup plotters.

          Why did this only happen TODAY? 🤔

          Didn’t Trump & his team know Clapper, Brennan, et al have been leaking for over a YEAR?
          But all of a sudden RAND PAUL SHOWING UP AT THE WHITE HOUSE TO PUBLICLY URGE TRUMP TO YANK THESE CLEARANCES, and Trump slaps himself on the forehead “Oh wow, gosh you’re right! Why didn’t *I* think of that! I should’ve done this long ago! Thanks for bringing this to me, Rand!”
          Surface skaters will NEVER figure out what’s really going on. The *cover story* is that inept, helpless, lazy Trump was suddenly moved to take action because Rand Paul had to talk some sense into him. Trump is only now moving to yank security clearances from leakers who’ve been allowed to leak for over a year & a half because

          Now let’s add a second poll question:

          Trump had NO IDEA that Brennan, Clapper, Comey, Hayden, Rice, etc. were leaking class. info to the media for past 1 1/2 yr or he knew & did nothing about it or he knew and he tricked them.
          Sessions and Rosenstein announced a YEAR ago that a special, new FBI counterintelligence unit had been created to do NOTHING but track down leakers and catch them.

          Remember how everyone laughed at Jeff’s “Just Don’t Do It” comment. Who’s got the last laugh.

          They caught Wolfe with a canary trap involving the SSCI version of the Carter Page FISA warrant. He sent 82 text messages containing pics of the FISA warrant to Ali Watkins. That document was marked, and the pics Wolfe sent Watkins directly implicated him. Then they left him in that job for 6 more months.

          Why?

          Why did they wait six months instead of arresting him immediately? Well if you think about it, it’s obvious why they waited. So he could further implicate himself and they could gather EVIDENCE implicating the members of Congress who were using Wolfe as a *middleman* to facilitate leaks to media reporters.

          That’s you guys & gals on the SSCI.

            “Trump had NO IDEA that Brennan, Clapper, Comey, Hayden, Rice, etc. were leaking class. info to the media for past 1 1/2 yr or he knew & did nothing about it or he knew and he tricked them”

            He definitely knew.

            Rewatch Nunes’ “Unmasking” press conference after visiting Trump’s SCIF which indicates that “incidental collection” from a “legal” surveillance warrant (the Oct16 Carter Page FISA) was used to “widely disseminate” POLITICAL intel in Nov16,Dec16,Jan17.

            Obama’s executive branch was using the Carter Page FISA not for “national security” reasons but “political ones”.

            The Plumbers breaking into the Watergate got nothing on this.
            Should be able to tie the intel to the unmasking to leaked media reports

              Interesting to go back and see this now. One thing that struck me was that Nunes was most concerned with unmaskings. Little has been really said about that recently in all the hoopla of the FISA. Can someone clear this up for me…
              Who brought this info to Nunes at this point in time? Someone on Rogers team? What did Nunes know at this time other than there was a FISA warrant on Page and it took him inside the Trump campaign…AFTER the election. right? He mentioned reluctantly that it was a Foreign source.? So he knew then they ran it thru a foreign connection, but NOT Russia.

              Side note he was hopeful Comey was going to be any help. Now thats funny. How innocent we were back them.

          If he’s a spook the last thing he’s going to admit to is being a spook. He’s going to use whatever tradecraft he knows to cover up his skills from being discerned by the “unskilled” (most everyone else).

    2. To avoid just prior to the mid-terms the Pravda media’s screams of “obstruction” of an “ongoing investigation” (perpetually ongoing for just that very reason – cover), something they CAN get away with since maybe 1% of Americans actually know the case in adequate detail or DESIRE to know the case in adequate detail.

    But what is the implication?

    Isn’t it most likely that the the security (Wolfe) leaked it to get into bed with the reporter?

    Is the implication that a senator leaked it? Or directed Wolfe to?

    Also, what is the implication of the SSCI having the FISA warrant for the last year?

    Is it simply that they played dumb to it, and continued their false narrative? Or is it more nefarius?

      Ok, so that’s just from that excel so that is not “the official narrative” – I can’t recall it myself but that’s what i see sans msm articles.

      So if someome wanted to get the ball rolling faster toward “collusion” why not get some stories involving real heavy weight-bearing eye-grabbing terms like FISA, FBI, warrant, trump associate, meetings, Russia, communications, campaign, election, foreign power, foreign agent…

      If u read the articles linked above these sound basically like indictments of Page. They sound to me like “hey reader – look they did this, it’s so really true we (Gov) has to get to the bottom of this ! (Ie we can’t let trump mess with this investigation!!1!1! And if he does u MUst support a Special Counsel – which we will appoint regardless, even if he doesn’t fire comey, after we rinse repeat this for a month or two – and, cause, ( WEE WEE bed + FLYNN ) x 111!!!! ^ Manafort!!).

      I was gonna quote a line or 2 from the first post article but I would end up quoting the whole thing. It’s all “PAGE GUILTY TRUMP GUILTY PAGE GUILTY RUSSIA TRUMP GUILTY PAGE” after I translate to liberal speak.

      Ok that’s enough for that. Next question:

      — But what is the implication?

      — Isn’t it most likely that the the security (Wolfe) leaked it to get into bed with the reporter?

      — Is the implication that a senator leaked it? Or directed Wolfe to?

      I thought the whole point of Sundance’s great in depth pieces here is this is there M.O…? Did I miss it ?

      1) They want to get TS info out.
      2) Request it.
      3) Wolfe handles it, then deceminates it.
      – Voila – No rich powerful super senators have to touch anything (Schiff is like a dirty peasant to them). Decent scheme for them; Wolfe not so much. There is a word often used for his role.

      Next question:

      — 1) Also, what is the implication of the SSCI having the FISA warrant for the last year?

      — 2) Is it simply that they played dumb to it, and continued their false narrative? Or is it more nefarius?

      Well from my 2-bit, just thrown, out theory which is sure to be wrong (I’m sure Sundance knows or has explained this btw – wish i had time to read more – hopefully he will drop im to answer ur question) … they had it cause they had it. They wanted it to start/push for SC or whatever.

      Now if U instead ask – why didn’t they say anything about it (being full balogney) in the last year?

      *tinfoil*: answer to 2nd may be yes and yes.
      *tinfoil*: If one thought or could rely that the DOJ FBI would keep it from the deplorable house repubs long enough to get a touchdown/impeachment … then why say anything?
      Is what they are saying now consistent with that?

      *tinfoil*:(He wasn’t supposed to win !! Argh !! He was supposed to be impeached already !!! Argh !! Argh !! Batten the hatches !!! Election !!! Gotta Impeach !!! … [to be continued])
      Just kidding – they can’t be that worried as u know. Media has their back 4 life.

      *tinfoil on feet also*: Does this mean they all knew ? And they all knew the republic wouldn’t get it for a year ? And they all were quiet because the republs *might not ever get it* ?
      That’s a bit too tinfoil for me to bend at this hour of day so I’ll leave it up to others (again… isn’t this EXACTLY what SD is saying ??)

      – Now, a problem with this theory is one might ask why did they not request for the January renewal which one might think would have more “beef” ‘to report’? Did they not know of it? Did they know they were the “same” (no – this makes no sense – why not ask for latest anyway)? Ok that’s my question.

      ___ begin appendix

      Hope u didn’t read that. Please refer to SD’s articles/replies; he knows what he is talking about – just read between the lines. He tells u when he is making suppositions and roughly how strong they are. You can also devour his knowledge and sub/include ur own suspicions if u like – it still works, usually.

      Not only am I totally guilty of playing hooky now, but I need to shower to soap the *loon* off me so I can get back to the real world. This stuff I just wrote is just Tom Clancy fiction – no way it’s true and if it is we’re screwed anyway cause no one will believe it; media or no media.

        CORRECTION:

        5th-ish paragraph beginning:

        But the nunes memo had recently come out so

        Strike those words… not “memo” – duh.

        I was thinking about the original press conference but that was actually march 22 or 23 or something (2 weeks before he was sent to the corner for being naughty). Nunes did meet with WH beginning of march (Senate/everyone knows when he goes to the WH remember and why) according to timeline, and he made the other statements listed above.

    Hopefully the Left will get so disturbed by their loss of power that they’ll demand enforcement of the 10th Amendment. That would be a win-win imo. Other than that, peaceful partition, like the former Czechoslovakia, if we can. Multi-national, multi-ethnic, multi-lingual, multi-racial, multi-culti empires don’t survive. Yep, an inviolable 10th, or as amicable a divorce as possible.

    “When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them…

    Politico SEPTEMBER 2016 BEFORE the First FISA Warrant.

    The Mystery of Trump’s Man in Moscow: Carter Page
    “[….]“Strangely, I’ve never heard of Carter Page until this Trump connection,” Bill Browder responded to me in an email. He was one of the biggest Western players in the Russian market until President Vladimir Putin turned on him and Browder became his fierce critic. “It’s odd, because I’ve heard of every other financier who was a player on Moscow at the time.”

    Someone, apparently, has heard of him: On Friday, Yahoo News reported that Page was being probed by U.S. intelligence for purported back-channel ties to Russian leaders. The story resurfaced the name of a character who’d all but vanished from the campaign, and reawakened questions about who, exactly, Trump was surrounding himself with.[…]”

    Interesting that that link in the Politico story is NOT for Yahoo news but this September 22, 2016, Foreign Policy article: From Reset to Realpolitik, Clinton’s New Hard Line on Moscow: As president, Hillary Clinton is prepared to take a much tougher stance on Russia than Trump — or even Obama. Syria’s civil war will be the first test.

    The Feb. 25, 2018 Associated Press story points to the correct Yahoo story: Text of declassified GOP memo targeting FBI’s Russia probe
    “[…] The Carter Page FISA application also cited extensively a September 23, 2016, Yahoo News article by Michael Isikoff, which focuses on Page’s July 2016 trip to Moscow. This article does not corroborate the Steele dossier because it is derived from information leaked by Steele himself to Yahoo News. The Page FISA application incorrectly assesses that Steele did not directly provide information to Yahoo News. Steele has admitted in British court filings that he met with Yahoo News — and several other outlets — in September 2016 at the direction of Fusion GPS. Perkins Coie was aware of Steele’s initial media contacts because they hosted at least one meeting in Washington D.C. in 2016 with Steele and Fusion GPS where this matter was discussed.[…]”

    I looked back to the top and sure enough they were quoting Sundance. – – Nice. 🙂
