Co-Conspiring “Media Coalition” Sue For Names, Addresses of Manafort Trial Jurors – Judge Ellis Refuses, No Verdict Reached…

The media institutions that are the central players in advancement of the two-year-long corrupt scheme against candidate Trump, now President Trump, all listed themselves as a “Media Coalition” on court documents demanding the names and addresses of the Manafort Jury:

Fortunately, Judge T.S. Ellis denied the motion by the media.

Shortly before 3:00pm this afternoon Judge Ellis said he personally had received threats and would keep the names of jurors a secret for their safety despite the media demand their names be made public.

The judge is being protected full time by the U.S. Marshals and shared with the court: “I won’t tell you what threats I’ve received,” he said, “but I have the Marshals’ protection. Where I go, they go. I had no idea this case would excite these emotions,” the judge said.

Ellis also said that he would ultimately unseal everything from the trial except for the jurors’ names and the transcript of a sidebar conference with lawyers that he said was related to Mueller’s broader investigation.

There is some insightful speculation, based on a history of media complicity within the larger storyline, that the media already have a juror contact (perhaps paid) and were seeking the names and addresses as cover for their reporting from their juror source. Given the media conduct in the larger two-year dynamic; and considering they have attached themselves to the inherent risk of sunlight; we cannot dismiss this possibility.

The media are enmeshed within the story of the DOJ and FBI corruption. However, only recently did we discover the media engagements were not just pervasive, they were/are participatory.  As a consequence the same media cannot reasonably report on any aspect of the story without exposing their own duplicity; their only choice is to double down on lies they helped create and promote.

Michael Isikoff highlighted a point in February when he admitted his reporting was being used by the DOJ and FBI to advance a political objective. Additionally, FBI investigator Peter Strzok and FBI attorney Lisa Page were shown in their text messages to be leaking stories from the Clinton Investigation, the Trump investigation and the Mueller investigation to journalists at Politico, The Wall Street Journal and Washington Post. –SEE HERE

FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe was busted by the Inspector General for leaking stories to the media and then lying about it to INSD and IG investigators. FBI Director James Comey admitted to leaking stories to the New York Times, and even hired his friend Andrew Richman (off-the-books), gave him access to FBI and NSA databases, and then leaked information to Richman along with another friend Benjamin Wittes at Lawfare blog.

Lest we forget, the IG report on how the FBI handled the Clinton investigation revealed that dozens of FBI officials were actually taking bribes from the media for information:

IG REPORT – We identified numerous FBI employees, at all levels of the organization and with no official reason to be in contact with the media, who were nevertheless in frequent contact with reporters. Attached to this report as Attachments E and F are two link charts that reflect the volume of communications that we identified between FBI employees and media representatives in April/May and October 2016. We have profound concerns about the volume and extent of unauthorized media contacts by FBI personnel that we have uncovered during our review.

[…] We do not believe the problem is with the FBI’s policy, which we found to be clear and unambiguous. Rather, we concluded that these leaks highlight the need to change what appears to be a cultural attitude among many in the organization. (link to pdf – page Xii of executive summary)


This is an IG fact-based criticism of the institution of the FBI, not simply a few rogue officials within it.

But wait…. Perspective:

More recently it was revealed that Andrew Weissman, Robert Mueller’s #1 special counsel prosecutor, was coordinating investigative efforts with the full support of four AP reporters who were giving Weissman information to use in his court filings and search warrants.

Nuts; simply, well, nuts.

Additionally, Christopher Steele has stated in U.K. court records the person in charge of the Clinton Campaign’s opposition research firm, Glenn Simpson from Fusion GPS, arranged and coordinated for Mr. Steele to talk to several journalists (CNN, The New York Times, The Washington Post, Yahoo News and Mother Jones) while Mr. Steele was also the primary source of information for the FBI investigators (including Strzok and Page):

(Source – page #8)

Make sure you read that full response from Christopher Steele above to see the scope of the media engagements he was conducting.

As more evidence surfaces the relationship between journalists, Fusion-GPS, Chris Steele and the media’s DOJ/FBI sources begins blending together. The FBI was using media reports, which were based on Fusion-GPS pitches, to bolster its investigative documents to the FISA court. It is an intelligence laundry operation:

According to the U.K records, Christopher Steele reports this September 2016 meeting with Isikoff was arranged by Glenn Simpson. According to Michael Isikoff on his February podcast, he met Christopher Steele at a Washington, D.C. hotel in Sept. 2016. They were joined by his “old friend” Glenn Simpson, the founder of opposition research firm Fusion GPS, who Isikoff now defines as a “private investigator.”

So Christopher Steele was meeting with journalists, the journalists were writing articles; the FBI was leaking to media and simultaneously citing those same articles as underlying evidence to support their counterintelligence investigations; and all of this was used to validate the investigative documents the FBI was receiving from Christopher Steele; who, along with the leaking FBI officials, was also the source of the media articles.

FUBAR! This is exponentially bonkers.

This is a circle of information, all coming from Glenn Simpson, Nellie Ohr and Christopher Steele at Fusion GPS, through Bruce Ohr at DOJ into the FBI via Peter Strzok.

Fusion GPS was the opposition research firm being financed by Hillary Clinton, along with FBI officials who were using their own strategic media leaks to authenticate/validate their own investigation.

Think about the scale of the reporting, and reporting on reporting, of anonymous leaks, false leaks, lies from “people with knowledge of the matter”, “government officials involved in the matter”, “people familiar with the matter”, “government sources” etc. all going in one unified and semi-coordinated direction – against the aggregate Trump administration.

Now, it actually gets even more convoluted.

Christopher Steele has sworn under oath that he met with multiple journalists (at least eight organizations) in September, mid-October, and late-October 2016: “at Fusion’s instruction“. (pdf page #7)

Overlay upon that sworn admission with what Glenn Simpson (Fusion-GPS) told the House Intelligence Committee while also under oath about his involvement in sharing information derived from Christopher Steele:

(Testimony – pdf link, page #147)

…”without my knowledge and against my wishes”?


FBI Director James Comey admits to leaking his ‘memos’ to the New York Times. FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe was busted for leaking and lying about it. FBI #2 Counterintelligence Agent Peter Strzok and FBI Attorney Lisa Page are caught in their text messages leaking to Politico, The Wall Street Journal and The Washington Post.

…. AND the FBI is caught, in at least one FISA application, using Yahoo media reports provided by them AND their investigative source Christopher Steele to establish a basis for the FISA “Title I” surveillance; the most intrusive and wide-open search and surveillance authority possible.

The Clinton Campaign is paying Fusion GPS to conduct opposition research against Donald Trump. In addition to Glenn Simpson pushing that opposition research into the media, Fusion GPS, Nellie Ohr and Bruce Ohr are also providing that opposition research –including information from contacts with media– directly to the FBI:

(pdf link – page #4)

… In addition to using the Fusion-GPS opposition research to underpin their counterintelligence investigation, the FBI then turn around and leak the same opposition research information to the media to create secondary support for their counterintelligence investigation.

Tell me again how the media can possibly write about this now?

The problem is not just corruption with the U.S. Justice System, the DOJ and the FBI; the problem is corruption within the media.

We’re talking about thousands of hours of media TV pundits, thousands more columns written, and almost every scintilla of it based on originating intelligence sources -from the larger intelligence system- that are now being exposed as duplicitous and conspiratorial in the scale of their malicious intent.

This larger story-line has traveled in one direction. The narrative has only traveled in one direction. Each thread converging on codependent trails for collective stories all going in one direction. One big engineered narrative endlessly pushed. Think about how far the collective media have traveled with this story over the past eighteen months?

Hell, twenty-something-year-old “journalist” Ali Watkins was so committed to the resistance narrative she was even sleeping with her sources to get any little engineering angle possible. One of the biggest leaks she was able to secure from SSCI Director of Security James Wolfe, was the full unredacted Carter Page FISA application.

Now, over a period of several exhaustive months, it has become obvious the collective journey, using all that collaborative expended effort, was not only going in the wrong direction – it was going in that direction specifically because the media were intentionally complicit in pushing demonstrably false stories in that direction.

The media have fully invested themselves in eighteen months of narrative distribution in only one direction. Not a single MSM entity has questioned their travel as a result of false leaks or false sources in the totality of time they have covered the DOJ and FBI story.

Nothing within their collective need to will-an-outcome will change the media’s proximity to facts when the truthful story behind the DOJ and FBI corruption is finally exposed. The media are so far away from the place where this story ends, they have no inherent capability to even begin to travel in the opposite direction, toward the truth.

The only way they could align with the truth is to admit that virtually every scintilla of their reportage over the past 18 months was inherently false or manipulated by the “sources” distributing the material for their reporting.

There’s not a single media outlet capable of doing that.

Think about a New York Times, CNN, New Yorker, Wall Street Journal, Mother Jones, Yahoo News or Washington Post journalist now having to write an article deconstructing a foundation of two-years worth of lies they participated in creating.

Do we really think such a catastrophic level of corrupted journalism could reconstitute into genuine reporting of fact-based information?

      While it’s clear Silicon Valley is shutting out all right-wing and conservative voices right in time for the election, this orchestrated campaign will last far longer than the 2018 election. They have no intention of allowing free speech on their platforms because keeping voters safely in the Progressive worldview is much tougher in a free flowing exchange of information and ideas.

      Their model for suppression has already been market tested in Europe, where governments don’t have to deal with pesky things like a constitutional right to free speech. I’ll hand it to the Left on this one, they knew legislation getting this done would be impossible.

The smart ones will eventually digest what happened and concede, reluctantly, the implications to the integrity of The Republic. Hopefully, your friends and family are in that camp. The rest (and “the rest” is very many people, to be sure) will despise Trump above all other considerations, even if it means rejecting the concepts of truth, justice, integrity, trust, and the like. Hopefully your friends and family are not in that camp. If so, I would keep the ones you care about at arm’s distance to avoid conflict — by that I mean: simply do not discuss politics. I do this with my closest family members, for example. Just do not engage. For the rest, just let them go. There’s nothing to be gained from fighting the frailty of a weak-minded individual.

    The Latest: 60 more ex-CIA officials criticize Trump

    Sixty former CIA officials are joining a chorus of national security professionals denouncing President Donald Trump’s decision to yank the security clearance of former CIA Director John Brennan, one of the president’s harshest critics.

      They have their own club and they have always shared shop talk with those formerly and presently in their roles. This removal of clearance makes shop talk 100% illegal and ultimately removes friendships between present and former CIA members.

      Socially and culturally, it’s a problem. But professionally, it’s a necessity. These people ARE the deep state and they forgot the country that pays them demands they act professionally and in the interests of that country. They don’t think they have a “job.” To them, it’s a “position.”

      I spent some time under US Federal employ as a civilian and I can tell you first hand that a huge portion of those people are attracted to that sector because they expect to be able to use and abuse their power and/or positions. I even knew ONE guy who plainly stated his retirement plan was to get injured on the job. That was an admission of intention to commit a serious felony and he stated so as if it were common, normal and acceptable.

      When government employment attracts people of this kind in such numbers, it’s time to look into what attracts such people. This is, of course, due to the policies and benefits, It’s seriously impossible to fire most government employees. It needs to change in a big way.

    Woah. The idea that the media ALREADY has a paid player in the jury is frightening. I sincerely hope there are eyes and ears on these jurors. We simply can’t have a justice system like this.

    On the surface, I could get what the media would want with regard to gaining access to the jurors, but as far as I can tell, that’s unprecedented and ridiculous. But to somehow “legitimately gain access” as a form of cover against the fact that they ALREADY have access to one or more jurors makes this weirdness make more sense.

    All that said, “No Verdict.” It’s not the slam dunk that was paid for right?

    Also, the identities of all the jurors would have already been leaked either by the mole juror(s) or by some swampy court clerk. Again, the motive for wanting to conceal this inappropriate and likely illegal knowledge makes a lot more sense when viewing the situaiton from that perspective.

    I tend to think the fix was in and it’s still NOT ENOUGH just as it has been with the presidential election of 2016 and nearly all of the elections since. There have been casualties such as Judge Roy Moore, but by and large, the swamp is losing against the voter… “the minority of the public” if you believe the media’s claim…which I do NOT.

    The people who want the country to be great again and are no longer willing to ignore the left just to get on with their own lives are the growing masses. The black approval numbers for Trump are nothing short of staggering. Trump just defeated LBJ if you know the statement to which I refer.

    As much as DOJ and FBI officials leaked to the press, including but not limited to, Weissman and others on the Mueller team, I would guess the Mueller team has already provided all the info of the jurors identities to the press.

    The press doesn’t need to expend the effort to find out the identity of the jurors. It has probably been provided to them by Weissman and his buddies. All Weissman and Mueller need is the cover of the “media coalitions” motion and some well timed anonymous leaks, that the Mueller team will deny any knowledge.

    Mueller’s team will say the anonymous leaks came from the Manafort team and then charge Manafort and his counsel with several more offenses including jury tampering. Gets Manafort’s team tied up or jailed for the next trial, and if it delays the next trial so what it is the continuing the narrative that counts.

    And CNN thinks the Manafort Inquisition will finally end the Voice in Their Heads. heh.
    CNN: The Jury-Tampering Network!

    It’s more of a Media Co-operative or “collective” than a Media Coalition 🙂

    It’s the old Soviet model.

    I’m reasonably sure that the CFNM (Consortium of Fake News Manufacturers) petitioned the court for the jurors’ names ONLY AFTER the jury sent Judge Ellis questions about “reasonable doubt” …and asking about reasonable doubt alerts The Big Ugly that the jury may be acquitting Manafort.

    THIS LATE REQUEST FOR JURORS’ NAMES IS A MAJOR TELL THAT THEY ALREADY HAVE JUROR INFORMATION, but just need a plausible cover to publicly reveal them.

    Stay tuned, folks …following the media’s request for the juror names and the judge’s refusal to grant it, no matter the jury’s decision the loser now has reasonable grounds to demand a mistrial. No, I’m not a lawyer …but I was drinking with one tonight, and he clearly explained how either loser could do that BEFORE we got blotto.

    Monday morning 9AM Ellis should suspend the trial for one week. In that time the MSM will just not be able to help themselves and start badgering one or more jurors. At which point you know either the list was leaked or there was actually somebody on the inside. How do you think Ellis would process that tidbit? I’m thinkin’ he wouldn’t take it well.

    The list of media on the court petition constitutes much, but not all, of the propaganda wing of the American communist party.

      If anybody ever says, “The media are not the enemy of the American people.” This attempted jury doxxing by the communist Democrats and their corporate media supporters is the smoking gun that they are.

    The motion is an attempt to intimidate the jurors. The Judge should never have heard it and should bar the media from covering the trial any further.

    Is it possible that the request for jurors names by the media is a hidden threat to the jurors as in “Be careful how you decide – we know where you live!”?

    Or are the jurors sequestered and therefore unaware the press is requesting their names?

    Finally, the jurors have a right to privacy and the press has no need or right to reveal their names and where they live.

      Wasn’t the reason that Judge Witchiepoo jailed Manafort because
      of witness intimidation? Wouldn’t jury tampering be considered similar?

      It would be poetic justice if Ellis could jail all the media maggots that are
      trying to throw the trial by scaring the jury.

    It’s a twofer, Mueller gets a new judge and a new jury. Too bad Ellis didn’t sequester his jury panel.

    The Media Collusion Team will not be doxing jurors if there is a guilty verdict. Since their motion hands Manafort a strong argument for a mistrial or an appeal, it would seem that they expect a mistrial or verdict of not guilty, at least on enough counts to blunt the political value. The MCT’s motion was clearly timed to send jurors this message: “vote guilty or we’ll help Antifa destroy your life”. Over the weekend, most if not all, jurors will hear about this from concerned family and friends. The jury has been tampered with.

    If the following is true, then what is preventing the Mueller’s Team from being shut down and prosecuted?

    In June 2017, Steele tells Ohr, “We are frustrated with how long this re-engagement with the Bureau and Mueller is taking.

    #4 at Justice passing information between a British spy and the Special Counsel. Why? Could it be that Steele is not a former spy?

    (Russian)Putin—>(Russian)Deripaska —>British spy Christopher Steele(U.K.)—>Bruce Ohr—> FISA application.

    (Russian)Putin—>(Russian)Deripaska —>British spy Christopher Steele(U.K.)—>Nellie Ohr—> Bruce Ohr—> FISA application

    Why the two communications paths?


  30. Concerned says:

    Did Steele ever stop working for GCHQ?

    In the summer of 2016, Robert Hannigan, head of Britain’s Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) traveled to Washington D.C. to meet with then-CIA Head John Brennan regarding alleged communications between the Trump Campaign and Moscow.

    That summer, GCHQ’s then head, Robert Hannigan, flew to the US to personally brief CIA chief John Brennan. The matter was deemed so important that it was handled at “director level”, face-to-face between the two agency chiefs.

    Hannigan’s U.S. counterpart was not CIA Director Brennan.

    Hannigan’s U.S. counterpart was NSA Director Mike Rogers.

    Each of these strands of UK-tied elements of the Russiagate narrative can be substantially dismantled on close inspection. This untangling process leads to the surprising conclusion that UK intelligence services fabricated evidence of collusion in order to create the appearance of a Trump-Russia connection.
