The Curious Case of James Wolfe Continues…

Curious legal developments in the case against the former Director of Security for the Senate Intelligence Committee, James Wolfe, are beginning to become quite troublesome.

In a noted bit of research timing, Jeff at MarketsWork [SEE HERE] and CTH are following the same curious trail.  SEE HERE.

First, we know from overwhelming circumstantial evidence, conveniently overlooked by media, that one of Wolfe’s specific leaks involved sending his concubine Ali Watkins a copy of the 82-page FISA application used to gain a Title-1 surveillance warrant against U.S. person Carter Page.   {Full Backstory Here}  Some key things about this leak:

  1. It is highly likely there were no redactions in the copy Wolfe leaked to the media.
  2. It is highly likely Wolfe was caught in a leak hunt, and the copy given to him included a specific, and intentionally wrong, internal date using October 19th as the origination date for FISA application approval.  (The actual date was Oct 21st).
  3. The October 19th date then shows up in subsequent media reports which were based on the leak.  The New York Times and Washington Post used the wrong date; the concentric reporting of the NYT and WaPo spread the wrong date like a virus.
  4. However, despite overwhelming and easy to prove evidence against him, Wolfe was never charged with the Carter Page FISA leak.  The DOJ/FBI have him dead-to-rights on that leak, but he was charged with the more disingenuous crime of lying to the FBI.

These explosive details have been largely ignored by media, and two recent legal filings add even more layers of intrigue.  Last week a federal judge denied a request by Wolfe’s lawyers to put a gag order on the entire U.S. government; to include President Trump:

The scant media coverage all focused on a narrative that Mr. Wolfe was requesting a gag order against President Trump in his case.  However, as you can see above, that was not the request.  More broadly Wolfe’s attorneys were attempting to bar any government official from any public statement.  This is Key…. keep that in mind as you look at the second development.

After losing the gag order request, lawyers for Mr. Wolfe have sent letters to every Senator who sits on the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence.  [As we have shared for years, the SSCI is the deepest and most corrupt part of the Deep State swamp.]

The lawyers for Wolfe are putting the senators on notice they might be called as defense witnesses. Read carefully, including between the lines (emphasis mine):

WASHINGTON—Members of the Senate Intelligence Committee have been notified they may be asked for testimony as part of the criminal trial of a veteran Senate staffer accused of lying to the FBI while working for the panel.

Attorneys for James A. Wolfe sent letters to all 15 senators on the committee, notifying them that their testimony may be sought as part of Mr. Wolfe’s defense, according to two people familiar with the matter.

Mr. Wolfe, who for nearly 30 years served as the director of security for the intelligence committee, was arrested last month and charged with lying to the FBI about his contacts with reporters while the bureau was conducting an investigation into leaks of classified information to journalists. Mr. Wolfe wasn’t charged with leaking any information.

Mr. Wolfe’s defense lawyers are considering calling the senators as part of the proceedings for a variety of reasons, including as potential character witnesses and to rebut some of the allegations made by the government in the criminal complaint, these people say.  (link)

Remember, Wolfe isn’t charged with the leaks, he’s charged with lying to the FBI.   His lawyers inferring that Senators might be called to rebut the allegations, seems to imply that Senators might have authorized the content of those allegations; or, put simply, Senators might have authorized or instructed Wolfe to make the leaks to the media.

…”to rebut some of the allegations” … “in the criminal complaint”

Pause on that for a moment.

Two things jump out to me immediately; things that could be considered heavily corrupt based on how the reader views the current DOJ institution; if ‘corrupt’:

#1) perhaps that’s why the DOJ didn’t charge Wolfe with the specific leak(s). If the DOJ had charged him with specific leaks to the media there could be Senators at risk of criminal conspiracy.

#2) perhaps these notification letters are Wolfe saying he will burn everyone if he is taken down, therefore his defense is to hide behind the Senators and make them pressure the DOJ to drop/lessen charges against him.

Something sketchy is definitely going on.

WASHINGTON – [cont,,] People familiar with the case are bracing for the possibly that lawmakers could try to invoke constitutional immunity to avoid testifying. The “speech or debate” clause of the constitution states that members are largely privileged from arrest while attending sessions of Congress and that “they shall not be questioned in any other place” about their legislative duties.

However, very little case law exists on the clause. David Schultz, who teaches law at the University of Minnesota, said he wouldn’t expect a court to entirely excuse members of Congress from testifying in a criminal proceeding, even if it is related to their official duties. (more)

Go read Jeff Carlson’s article at The Markets Work –SEE HERE– He too is noticing that something increasingly sketchy and curious is happening.

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:



  • March 16th, 2017, SSCI requests copy of FISA application from Court
  • March 17th, 2017, a copy of the application with an intentionally adjusted date (Oct 19th) was delivered to James Wolfe, Director of Security for the SSCI.
  • March 17th, 2017, Wolfe sends reporter Ali Watkins a copy of the original FISA application via 82 picture text messages (one per page) thereby distributing the wrong date.  He may have also shared with other reporters.
  • Numerous media reports surface using the October 19th false date.
  • October 31st, 2017, FBI notifies Security Director James Wolfe of a leak investigation (hunt for leakers) looking at the Senate Intelligence Committee.
  • December 14th, 2017, Ali Watkins announces she will no longer be covering the SSCI.
  • December 15th, 2017, FBI confronts James Wolfe with evidence that he is one of the people leaking classified intelligence to journalists.
  • Before the end of December 2017, Wolfe resigns.
  • FBI gains national security search warrant against reporter Ali Watkins and all of her electronic communications.  Watkins is notified by her network provider on February 13th, 2018.
  • May 3rd, 2018, grand jury proceedings against Wolfe.  Indictment remains under seal.
  • June 7th, 2018, indictment is unsealed – James Wolfe is arrested.

    Democrat senator(s) on that committee, NOT Wolfe, are the true source(s) of the unredacted version of the FISA application. And whoever inserted the false date to trap the rats is a genius, imo. This is a multi-level criminal conspiracy.

    President Trump, do not allow them to get away with this by lessening charges and hiding their involvement. This is an incredible opportunity to ensnare and put away both government and media swamp creatures in one big pile.

        It was a meant as a blueprint for the media to shape it’s coverage. With think about the advantage they had knowing all the unredacted names so much sooner, of knowing the reasoning for the app when all of us could only speculate. If we never knew about the leak it would look like we were all conspiracy theorists in the face of the sane, competent media when it was finally released.

      For Watergate 69 people were indicted and 49 pleaded guilty or were convicted. That was Republican Ford’s Admin going after the Republican Nixon’s Admin; including two AGs. What has happened to our county in the meantime. Even FNC is ignoring this story. I have sent Tweets to everyone who I know has a bully pulpit this link and put a link on my Face Book page.
      Not too much more I can do except go back to my 15 month protest corner during the Obama Admin with my signs, but I now have a business and don’t have the time. Someone should though.

      Trump is a deal maker, not a lawyer or a judge. He was willing to let Hillary skate: “Hillary, the Clintons have suffered enough.”

      I just hope and pray the corrupt lobby owned Senators like those on this Senate Committee resign, go home. After spending many of their NOT earned millions on legal counsel for possible representation.

      Best part when all this fakery is over – AG Sessions, with hands ‘white as snow’ because he Recused from fakery Russia, can really go to work. Cleaning up this monster, crooked Federal Bureauracy!

      • In the case of Clinton skating, Trump may be smart to not alienate her and draw further personal wrath; I mean she already has the reins for a lot of people who are anti-trump. Doesn’t mean eventually he can’t go after her after he takes down the people protecting her.

        WHAT? The Clintons have suffered enough? They haven’t suffered at all except that she wasn’t handed the Presidency so she could do more damage while on her ego and money grabbing trip. She ought to pay for her crimes – just like the rest of us would – in fact some have paid for lots less than what she did.

          I think HRC is a bona fide case where Insanity is a valid defense and the best punishment is to make her go free traipsing the world “proving” her point


          • margarite1 says:

            I understand your point but she needs to get what she deserves so everyone will see that at least once crimes committed while being paid by the taxpayers does not pay.

            Although she seems to love being a victim so in a way she’d probably love being locked up.

      Just so you & everybody else knows the last U.S. Senator censured by the US Senate, was: In 1967 {Thomas Joseph} Dodd (name ring any bell’s, it should—wait for it) became the first Senator censured by the US Senate since Joseph McCarthy in 1954, and was one of only six people censured by the Senate in the 20th century. The resulting censure was a condemnation and finding that he had converted campaign funds to his personal accounts and spent the money

      Thomas Joseph Dodd, (May 15, 1907 – May 24, 1971) the father of U.S. Senator {1981 to 2011} for Connecticut, Christopher Dodd.

      Teddy Kennedy / Christopher Dodd / waitress {Gaviglio} sandwich.

      Christopher Dodd well known during his Senate career as a pal of Teddy Kennedy{the other slice of bread} in his hard-partying days, former U.S. Senator {1981 to 2011} for Connecticut, Christopher “Dodd, for example, was one slice of bread in the notorious “waitress sandwich” reported by many and documented by respected journalist Michael Kelly.

      Teddy Kennedy / Christopher Dodd / waitress {Gaviglio} sandwich

      It is after midnight and Kennedy and Dodd are just finishing up a long dinner in a private room on the first floor of the restaurant’s annex. They are drunk. Their dates, two very young blondes, leave the table to go to the bathroom. (The dates are drunk too. “They’d always get their girls very, very drunk,” says a former Brasserie waitress.) Betty Loh, who served the foursome, also leaves the room. Raymond Campet, the co-owner of La Brasserie, tells Gaviglio the senators want to see her.

      As Gaviglio enters the room, the six-foot-two, 225-plus-pound Kennedy grabs the five-foot-three, 103-pound waitress and throws her on the table. She lands on her back, scattering crystal, plates and cutlery and the lit candles. Several glasses and a crystal candlestick are broken. Kennedy then picks her up from the table and throws her on Dodd, who is sprawled in a chair. With Gaviglio on Dodd’s lap, Kennedy jumps on top and begins rubbing his genital area against hers, supporting his weight on the arms of the chair. As he is doing this, Loh enters the room. She and Gaviglio both scream, drawing one or two dishwashers. Startled, Kennedy leaps up. He laughs. Bruised, shaken and angry over what she considered a sexual assault, Gaviglio runs from the room.


  3. Sherlock Holmes has nothing on our Sundance, who is one of the greatest detectives of all times. What I find incredible is that he (Sundance) isn’t working for some elite, top secret intelligence unit somewhere. His research and analysis are superior to 99% of those working for Big Government.
    As a taxpayer it sickens me that the thousands and thousands of low lifes whose obscene salaries and benefits I pay for, are so incompetent and biased that they can’t even put together a decent set of reports and legal documentation. (talking about the FBI, CIA, etc.) Their inferior work product would be thrown out of most offices in the private sector.

    Go Sundance! You are my own personal Super Hero.

Find this link and you will learn everything there is to know about Robert Mueller, James Comey and how the FBI was dumbed down and how all the well seasoned experienced FBI agents were forced out with result being un-accountability of the FBI that we all see now. You will be amazed at what you will learn and will see clearly why the FBI are the way they are today, the embodiment of Peter Strzok!

    The message from the deep state might very well be to the informed that you know and we know what we have done and are doing and we walk. Give up. Wolfe might go to jail for awhile but will come out with his pockets lined.

  5. Wolfe is screwed.

    His ‘defense’ is almost certainly that he was ‘authorized’ by one or more members of the SSCI to ‘leak’ the Page FISA warrant.

    However, it is clear that he has declined to indicate which member or members ‘authorized’ him to do so.

    I suspect we’re going to see quite a few ‘I was just following orders’ defenses in the coming weeks/months/years as the Swamp is being drained. Clapper just did the same thing with Obama.

    Wolfe’s real problem, however, is that there is no member of the SSCI who can authorize the publication of classified material.

    If no one steps forward to vindicate this claim that he was ‘authorized he goes to jail.

    If someone from the SSCI steps forward to claim they ‘authorized’ Wolfe to leak the material, they will be indicted for the same crime and Wolfe still goes to jail.

    It’s a lose-lose scenario for anyone who associates themselves with the leak.

    No one is going to come forward and Wolfe is going to be convicted.

    The Swamp is being put on notice that, if you leak, you will do time.
