Good News: Mark Meadows Begins Outlining FBI Corrupt “Sources” (Journalists) and “Methods” (Media Reports)…

As details and documents are pried from the grip of FBI officials intent on hiding the institutional malfeasance, one corrupt issue has become increasingly clear.  The FBI and DOJ intentionally leaked information to the media and then cited the subsequent media reports for their ongoing investigative purposes.

Within this circular approach journalists became “sources” and media reports became “methods”.  Thus, the FBI and DOJ are desperate to protect “sources and methods” because behind the familiar catch-phrase is an outline of procedural corruption. ie: “by the book“.

Representative Mark Meadows (R-NC) is one of the congressional investigators who, with greater document release, is beginning to outline this approach.

In a letter today to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein (full pdf below) Mr. Meadows points to new discoveries of how FBI Lawyer Lisa Page and FBI Agent Peter Strzok were using leaks to the media in April 2017 to further the aim of eliminating President Trump.

The letter cites two specific examples:

  • April 10, 2017: (former FBI Special Agent) Peter Strzok contacts (former FBI Attorney) Lisa Page to discuss a “media leak strategy.” Specifically, the text says: “I had literally just gone to find this phone to tell you I want to talk to you about media leak strategy with DOJ before you go.”
  • April 12, 2017: Peter Strzok congratulates Lisa Page on a job well done while referring to two derogatory articles about Carter Page. In the text, Strzok warns Page two articles are coming out, one which is “worse” than the other about Lisa’s “namesake”.” Strzok added: “Well done, Page.”

Keep in mind, in the background – March 17th, 2017: the Security Director of the Senate Intelligence Committee (SSCI), James Wolfe, had leaked the first 83 page FISA application on Carter Page to his journalist girlfriend Ali Watkins.  [Go Deep]  Ms. Watkins then began reporting on elements within the application that applied to Carter Page.  This seeded the media for subsequent stories.

Here’s the letter from Mark Meadows:

.

You’ll note the citation for the Washington Post article contained in the Meadows letter is THIS ONE – April 11th, 2017 –  With a familiar set of authors:

Journalist Devlin Barrett was a frequent recipient of leaks from FBI Attorney Lisa Page and FBI Agent Peter Strzok.  [Go Deep] The leaks were used to shape a narrative that was favorable to the objectives of the FBI and were in line with the dictates of Ms. Page boss, Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe.

McCabe was fired from the FBI for lying to internal investigators about his involvement with leaks.  [Possible criminal indictment pending] It is reasonably assumed that Lisa Page and Andrew McCabe gave statements about the leaks that conflicted with each other.

The pattern here is remarkably familiar in all aspects of the 2015, 2016 and 2017 FBI and DOJ operations against President Trump.  The media were collaborating with corrupt officials to both frame a narrative and simultaneously provide material for use in ongoing corrupt FBI and DOJ investigations; including, ultimately, Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

Many sources for FBI investigative reports are actually media articles that were written based on leaks from the FBI investigators.  This is one of the reasons the media are dug-in to a position of alignment with the corrupt DOJ and FBI officials. [Go Deep]  Inasmuch as the truth is adverse to the interests of the corrupt officials, so too is that same truth toxic to the media corporations who engaged in the collaboration.

Additionally, many of the journalists who keep showing up amid the population of this ongoing story are likely connected to the Fusion-GPS network.  This creates even more motive for ongoing media obfuscation.

Lastly, within the final paragraph of the letter, Mark Meadows mentions Mike Kortan.  Mike Kortan was the former FBI Asst. Director of Public Affairs.  [Go Deep] “Mike” Kortan is mentioned often in the Page/Strzok messages.

Jim Baker (FBI Chief Legal Counsel); Trisha Beth Anderson (FBI/DOJ Office of Legal Counsel), Dave Laufman (DOJ-National Security Division); and Mike Kortan (FBI Press Office)

            Here’s the thing about that idea….

            The medium is the scandal.

            The more I meditate on that….
            The more I FORCE myself to accept it as real….
            The more I think about Woodward, Bernstein, Halper and Hillary…..
            The more I accept that Trump was THEIR SECOND TIME, and Nixon the FIRST….
            The more I realize Halper lights fuses, Hillary protects them, W&B film explosions….
            The more I remember a journalist trying to start and film a FIRE in a laboratory…..
            The more I remember Stalin’s FIRST influenced Americans were JOURNALISTS….
            The more I remember he invited them to Russia….
            The more I remember he chose carefully….
            The more I remember how much that’s like Obama and Silicon Valley….
            The more I remember Jay Carney’s Soviet propaganda photos….
            The more I realize that “It’s a joke” and “It’s cool” are seamless from that to COVER….
            The more I force myself to accept that there is no final difference between motivations when an ACT is performed….
            The more I remember about my first accidental encounter with “event creation”….

            THAT is when it hits me what they did. They controlled the press FIRST.

            Very, very, very, very, very, very gently.

            Then think about how all the SUBTLE influences worked.

            Very, very, very, very, very, very subtle.

            Look at the AP stylebook.
            Look at when you can’t report race.
            Look at when it was said “you can’t talk about communism”.
            Look at almost every single “cultural norm” that is SET by the press.

            There are LITERALLY thousands of ideas like that which are forced on us. We think that they have appeared spontaneously. No. They didn’t. It was only as their curves of acceptance steepened that we realized what was going on.

            Control the press by controlling THEIR minds, and you can do whatever you want.

            The medium

            Really

    I personally knew two very seasoned Federal Labor Department investigators involved in the investigation of corrupt union officials who were fired and subsequently prosecuted by the United States Attorney’s Office for leaking grand jury information. In one case the Labor Department investigator talked to a local reporter covering union corruption and the other investigator spoke with an informant to corroborate a witnesses testimony. In both cases the leaks were innocent and had no evil intent yet both investigators with over twenty years on the job were convicted of contempt of court and sentenced to a year in federal prison. They lost everything yet for some reason these FBI agents and DOJ officials are exempt from the same consequences in spite of trying to overthrow a duly elected President of the United States. Why?

      You’re also forgetting there’s a pretty good chance that Loretta Lynch signed the FISA app for the 10/21/2016 FISA warrant on Carter Page, for which she had to do so under the orders of POTUS OVomit. Game & match point if that’s the case. OVomit’s making a mistake calling attention to himself, but he seemingly cannot stop himself.

      BTW OVomit might have had a good crowd on Friday [I don’t know how many attended] , but his Saturday speech was in front of only 750 attendees. No way does most of the country believes the economic boom was due to OVomit either.

      So please Pres. Trump, let the FISA apps out, along with an unredacted version of Judge Collyer’s decision on the DOJ/FBI FISA abuse. Or how about Adm. Rogers gives a little speech on his findings while heading the NSA?

        Perhaps this is why the silence lately from Mueller and team.

Better to release all the details so the people know of the corruption when driving to their voting station. The quandary I’m not sure about is who flipped and how will this touch HRC and Obama?

        Bogeyfree, I described on some old posts here how shortly before the Snowden revelations I became aware my phone was ‘tapped’.
        It was confirmed by my Metro PCS tech, who connected my phone to his computer to troubleshoot it. But when he tried to run a trace to see who was doing it, he drew a blank.
        First he was angry and puzzled, but when I told him it was probably the government, he was terrified.
        Some days later, they put a ‘tail’ on me. The guy was a rookie, really obvious. The first 23 miles of my 26 mile trip to work turned into a James Bond movie.
        It ended when I grabbed my cellphone and told the dirtbags their ‘tail’ was really obvious, and I was going to shake him off within the next 5 minutes.
        Then I pretended I was going to overshoot my exit, and at the last second dove across 2 lanes of traffic into it.
        He tried to dive in after me, ended up in the grassy area between the road and the exit, almost flipped over, and almost hit a pole.
        He scrambled back up to I-295 and called it quits.
        I will never forget, or forgive.
        If a list ever comes out of who they were illegally monitoring, and my name is on it, I will sue, not the government, but every single dirtbag involved.

          The big difference according to Binney, wide open collects everything and it is just too much data and because of this the analysis is almost always AFTER the fact or AFTER the event vs targeted spying if done properly allows the assessment team to comb the data AHEAD of the event and possibly prevent it.

    I like this pressure coming from Congress, and not directly from the White House. DoJ will ignore Congress often, but these requests blaze a trail which will be followed eventually. Tick tock, indeed.

    The Roberts Supreme Court needs to get into this eventually, as Trump has tweeted. The root of this is still that FISA court and abuses therein, and Rogers pointed out irregularities in that process before the election even. The 4th Amendment is not a suggestion, and willfully subverting the Constitution is a serious matter. When we finally start sentencing DoJ personnel to prison, this should be the crime foremost on the bill.

    Q:I wonder if Mueller was aware of the shenanigans that his team members Strozk and Page, and DOJ were playing with the media.

    A: Horowitz told Mueller in July 2017 about Pete and Lisa’s texts. So Mueller knew about the shenanigans and more importantly, Mueller knew THE DOJ’s INSPECTOR GENERAL KNEW about the shenanigans. (That same IG has jurisdiction over him.)

    Q:Did Mueller review the application for the fourth extension of the Carter Page FISA warrant?
    A: Yes. That FISA renewal was renewed for MUELLER. Was Mueller surveilling the White House and the President with it is a more interesting question.

    Q: Was Mueller being fed the Bruce Ohr 302s?
    A: Unknown but possibly. It appears the 302’s were the mechanism that Steele’s info was being fed to the FBI after they “fired” him. Those 302s run well into 2017

      From the outset, the deep swamp was screaming for Mueller, the honest, the Republican, the saintly to be named to head the investigation of President Donald J. Trump.

      Mueller is so honest, so brilliant, so Republican and so saintly that there was no way he could find any shenanigans taking place by his team. None. Zero, Nuh uh.

      Therefore, there is no reason for Mueller to “discover” what he couldn’t see. To do so, would force him to open his lying eyes.

      What intrigues me is just how he will successfully wriggle off the hook which he himself set and then swallowed.

      In the deep swamp, when you gig a gator, best you get to it soon because passing gators will chomp off a leg or two if for no other reason than that they can.

    This comment may be off topic – Sadly, I’m coming to the conclusion that nothing will come of all this. People here can be as hopeful as you want, I see absolutely nothing that leads me to think the DOJ/FBI will come clean. Everyone, Horowitz, Huber et. al., seem determined to protect the institutions. The swamp will win this and I believe the election. That’s the way it is trending. Trump should release all of the redacted documents. Everything, absolutely everything. Un-redact it all and tell America that these people within these organizations (the swamp) were planning a silent / 21st century coup. Go back to McConnell and Ryan and tell them he wants the wall funding – period. And he’ll keep the government closed until 2020 if necessary. That’ll shake up the electorate and perhaps motivate his base to get out and vote in November. Trump should push all his chips to the center of the political table and call. Otherwise, the DOJ and FBI will escape this over time. Pelosi will be the next speaker. Nothing will happen and Maxine will impeach 45 or try on national TV. Very sad.

      Be fair regarding Huber and give him a chance. If he is doing something and NOT LEAKING ABOUT IT have some hope that he has more integrity than the batch of clowns that are the subject of this thread. Time will tell but just because we don’t have a corrupt prosecutor giving us all a peak behind the curtain is maybe not super satisfying to our piqued interest but it is evidence of a lack of pure evil and the way the “justice” system is supposed to work. We have to believe in and be consistent in our approach to innocent until proven guilty or the bad guys will kill this attempt at holding them criminally liable. Remember they have really really well paid lawyers doing their defense work and one of the worst things that can happen is bad acts by prosecutors in a rush to trial. I am not defending anyone but there is great and vast irony in us wanting strzok – page tactics employed on our behalf as we thirst for more info on this case (better said these cases). We cannot cede that ground or it will feel 1000x worse if they succeed thwarting jail with savvy lawyers.

        I have to say that I honestly fear over-reach or over zealousness by Huber or some other corrupt DOJ official as a way to help these folks escape justice. This has to be PERFECT execution in the prosecution in order for anyone to see the inside of a jail cell. The move on the part of a prosecutor to intentionally mess up the prosecution is as much of a danger as never bringing charges but probably worse as it would not be as obvious to us folk in the general public but equally and/or way way way more frustrating to the cause of justice. I cannot emphasize enough how big my fear of this is. I point to the behavior of strzok with his inside knowledge of the prosecution of Wiener in saying there is much damage to be done from the inside that almost didn’t get caught (in that instance) where he emailed a copy of the sealed indictment to himself and then I am assuming he passed it along to someone connected to the HRC campaign to give them a heads up for damage control. Again super-sublte saboteur stuff but very damaging to a successful case. and in a justice dept where apparently you can’t know employees political affiliations (or are not allowed to ask/consider) you are almost in effect behind enemy lines with the team of prosecutors and investigators you bring to bear not sure which of them will betray you to the enemy. Again, why leaks have not happened from Huber’s team (assuming he is doing something and actually has a team in place to assist him) is a testament to the tight-fisted control he has and probably involves some sort of dressing down by them for anything that goes awry (leaks), at least so far and that I think is cause for hope at this stage ever more so than consternation.

      The buck also stops with the Supreme Court and Chief Justice John Roberts. The Supreme Court is a separate Branch of government under the Constitution, which has been directly misled by false declarations and fraud on the FISA Court in the function of the FIS court, by the Executive Branch FBI/DOJ. Roberts appoints and has jurisdiction over the FIS Court and its operations, in the same manner that President Trump heads the Executive Branch. Roberts and the FIS Court have done nothing, despite having been defrauded. The FIS Court has its own power to hold those who defraud it in contempt of court, and imprison them. Truthfulness to this secret “Star Chamber” Court is even more important than other to Federal Courts, because other courts have counsel representing the “other side” to oppose false evidence. But the FIS Court and Chief Justice Roberts have done nothing but accept being defrauded. (“oh, well, they defrauded us. maybe we should ask them to please not do that and get caught at it again”)

    Can we please dispense with the “third rate burglary” diversion in our Watergate comparisons? The under appreciated precedential value of Watergate was that it was an act of (attempted) spying on an opposing presidential campaign by the incumbent party. The Cubans were caught with listening devices intended to be planted in DNC HQ. The frantic coverup was to conceal attempted spying on a rival campaign, not a heist of Larry O’Brien’s petty cash box. Would it have made the slightest difference if a CREP agent posing as an A/C repairman during business hours had been caught planting the bugs? Obviously, the Cuban hijinx don’t hold a candle to the Obama version of political espionage. “Third rate espionage” by the Watergate bumblers would be more apt for a useful comparison. The focus the should be on the corrupt use of government instumentalities by administrations against their political opponents, both as to the initial crimes and their concealment and obfuscation. Viewed in that light, the relative gravity of the Obama crew’s sedition becomes clear.

So called ex-CIA James McCord said he was there to fix one of the two bugs he had planted previously. This of course was also a lie … NO operable bugs were found at the DNC by the police, Secret Service, phone company or the (corrupt) FBI.
      The DNC Watergate offices were where the Dems called prostitutes across the street. The whores’ pimp unexpectedly got picked up by local Washington police and then the evidence (prostitute’s pictures) in Ida Well’s desk needed to be destroyed (the arrested Cubans had a map and key to her desk). There never was a burglary … or bugs … or bumblers … or even a real break-in (they had to have a key to get in both stairwells).

        Carter Page was lured there. By some accounts he was invited to it by either Halper or a student of Halper’s. Reportedly, conference organizers paid his airfare and provided dorm lodging.

        Christopher Steele was present there, too. And right afterwards he writes another memo for the Dossier, dated 19 July 2016 re Carter Page.

        Steele Dossier as published by Buzzfeed on 11 Jan 2017
        https://www.documentcloud.org/documents/3259984-Trump-Intelligence-Allegations.html

        Carter Page’s name appears on:

        Pages 7-8, Report 2016/1095, undated (sloppy)
        Pages 9-10, Report 2016/94, dated 19 July 2016
        Pages 15-16, Report 2016/101, dated 10 Aug 2016
        Page 17, Report 2016/102, dated 10 Aug 2016
        Pages 30-31, Report 2016/13.] [sic], dated 15 Oct 2016
        Pages 32-33, Report 2016/135, dated 19 Oct 2016
        Pages 34-35, Report 2016 166, dated 13 Dec 2016
        (Buzzfeed may not have published entire Dossier, since there are gaps in the Report numbers)

        (Every time I read a few pages of this Steele Dossier, I’m just amazed over and over at how infantile and amateur it is, besides all the lies.)

        Anyway, this means that while Carter Page was at the conference with Halper on 11-12 July 2016, Christopher Steele, also present, would issue his first report on Carter Page dated 19 July 2016, only a week later.

    http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/322348-top-obama-adviser-to-trump-no-president-can-order-a-wiretap

    Do a simple Google News search on the topic from that time period and you fund numerous articles saying the same thing, that the president cant order that.

    But then you also find this nugget from 2005 when Cheney said that Bush could do exactly that.

    http://www.cnn.com/2005/POLITICS/12/20/cheney.wiretaps/

    And sure enough, from Page 7 of the FISA Act:

    SEC. 102. ø50 U.S.C. 1802¿ (a)(1) Notwithstanding any other
    law, the President, through the Attorney General, may authorize
    electronic surveillance WITHOUT A COURT ORDER under this title to acquire
    foreign intelligence information for periods of up to one year
    if the Attorney General certifies in writing under oath “

    And guess what we learned just last week from our friends and Judicial Watch:

    “The Justice Department (DOJ) admitted in a court filing last night that the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court held NO HEARINGS on the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) spy warrant applications targeting Carter Page”
    https://www.judicialwatch.org/press-room/press-releases/judicial-watch-justice-department-discloses-no-fisa-court-hearings-held-on-carter-page-warrants/

    PRESIDENT-ELECT TRUMP WAS TOLD HE WAS BEING SURVEILLED IN NOVEMBER 2016.

    BUT IT WASNT UNTIL MARCH 2017, THAT POTUS TRUMP FOUND OUT IT WAS PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA WHO PERSONALLY ORDERED IT.

      YES. Excellent chronology there.

      I believe that the media is actually a huge part of the scandal, as is a huge part of DOJ, and a huge part of the FBI. They cannot fall unless they all fall together, and if the media falls, a good chunk of CIA has to fall with them.

      The media has been complicit with the Democrats against the Republicans all along – Nixon – Reagan – Bush-n-Bush – Trump. They get bolder and more insane all the time. Now that DOJ and FBI are corrupt, the media is right there with them.

      SD is right in his tweetstorm – DOJ and FBI are still trying to evade.

      They are trying to PRESERVE their deal with the media and the people who deal with them, so it can all resume after Trump.

      They are trying to RIDE OUT THE STORM.

      Rosy is PRETENDING TO BELIEVE those below him. He is ALLOWING them to lie to him, just like Strzok and the others ALLOWED Hillary to lie to them.

      ROSY = MAMET

      FBI = MAMET

          DiGenova thinks Mueller is going to allege obstruction. Out-fricking-rageous. If he does, then I hope to see Mueller HANG.

          By the way, some judge used 9/10 for a psy-op announcement of a default judgment against Iran for Khobar Towers, to try to propagandize suspicion away from AQ and the Mueller/Comey gang that protected them.

          Just makes me POed to see these Cabal goons try to cover up what they did. On THIS 9/11, of all of them, when I finally understand who let it happen, and how they did it, it angers the H-E-double-L out of me to see those jokers gettin’ away with it.

      I originally thought that POTUS meant the “Obama administration” when he tweeted that, not Obama personally. And when the left came back making a big deal about how the President didnt have that authority, I thought they were just using a straw man argument again, one of their favorite tactics.

      Now, looking back, the tweet was very specific, and I think Trump meant exactly what he said, Obama personally ordered it, and the lefts response wasnt a straw man argument, it was their other favorite tactic, PROJECTION!

    Weissman has a career of persecuting innocent people and destroying lives. He needs to be fired, disbarred, indicted and made subject to civil penalty from all the folks in the Trump administration who have had to mortgage their houses to pay lawyers—never mind the pain and suffering this thug has inflicted. If there is a hell, he is going to burn there.

    March 17th, 2017: the Security Director of the Senate Intelligence Committee (SSCI), James Wolfe, had leaked the first 83 page FISA application on Carter Page to his journalist girlfriend Ali Watkins. [Go Deep] Ms. Watkins then began reporting on elements within the application that applied to Carter Page. This seeded the media for subsequent stories.
    Has anybody noticed this story hasn’t seen any sunlight in the “news” media? Will it ever is the question….

    I posted this 2013 link yesterday in another thread.

    https://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/government-elections-politics/united-states-of-secrets/the-frontline-interview-diane-roark/

    Patriot Act opened up the floodgates. Read the bits about the “legality” of data collection, warrantless searches, etc. Basically, Bush’s team broadened NSA activities under “war powers authority” and NSA could basically do whatever they want to collect and store data. Lots of data. Lots and lots of data. For Obama, he and his team probably internally declared “Russian collusion” as an act of “war”… oh wait… that is EXACTLY what the Dems said it was. Worse than Pearl Harbor, they said.

    In the article “The Real Origination Story of the Trump-Russia Investigation” Andrew McCarthy came to the conclusion about the Trump-Russia investigation. McCarthy suggests it began in the early spring, probably around the end of March.
     
    The Trump-Russia investigation did not originate with Page or Papadopoulos. It originated with the Obama administration.

    Unless I missed it upthread, no one has yet commented that Meadows’ letter misspells Strzok’s name three times. 😦

    Yeah, I know that’s ticky-tack, but it’s not great for Rep. Meadows’ gravitas that he/his staff didn’t check such an important letter well enough to notice that the spelling keeps flipping back and forth thoroughout the entire letter. That should not happen.

    We need to be letter-perfect, considering the hypocrisy and mendacity of the disloyal opposition….

    It appears the President has a genuine ally in Meadows, and I believe they are coordinating their pressure on the DOJ, knowing with confidence that RR will do his utmost to deflect, obfuscate, and cover-up the DOJ’s obvious culpability in the origination and continuance of the seditious fraud.

    The President’s de-classifying of the FISA documents may be a serious hammer blow to all the FBI/DOJ/msm co-conspirators. Bring it on!

      And this approach begins to debunk the precious exclusion for “sources and methods”.
      Couldn’t the exact $$ paid to the various reporters/media outlets (methods) also be revealed to underscore how complicit they are in the whole stinking mess? Talk about the “FAKE NEWS MEDIA”!
      That graph in the IG report which showed all the $$ and favors paid to reporters by FBI sources would not be well received by those not following the story closely yet.

      Mulehead Mueller should now lay low until after the election; time to declassify and expose the incriminating FISA warrants and other information. It would be no surprise to learn Mueller or his hires were in discussion with Comey, Strzok, Ohr, Rosenstein or others to get Trump impeached prior to his appointment. Mueller is deep state and Republican in registration only, he was a major Obama enabler.

    Have no idea what possessed me, but over the last few weeks I watched the DVD’S Snowden, and Citizen Four. These movies scared me to death. The POWER of the GVMT to spy on us. And for exposing these crimes – our former President whatever his real name or identity is- Obama- prosecuted more whistleblower’s in history for exposing his crimes against humanity. Feel very SICK in my SOUL what these whistleblowers have been through.
    That Stzrok and Paige, etc, didn’t ever think their emails would be un-earthed and revealed is beyond my comprehension. But I give thanks to the Goddess that they WERE SO DAMN STUPID.

    I never considered DOJ/FBI protection of “sources and methods” as the protection of their (fake or accurate information) leaks to journalists and the subsequent media reports supporting DOJ/FBI investigations, Presidential election tampering and sedition.

    Sundance……….I hope you’ve found this already. I tried to post the link but had to go back for the quote from Strzok’s lawyer about “media leak strategy” and what I had already tried to post dissapeared. The story is on Fox.

    Strzok’s lawyer, and obviously Strzok, is/are wigged out about the release of the text containing the “media leak strategy”.

    So wigged out he’s telling a deliberate and yet provable lie:

    “In response to the latest letter and Trump tweet, though, Strzok lawyer Aitan Goelman said the line in question referred to an effort to stop leaks and accused the president of misleading people.

    “The term ‘media leak strategy’ in Mr. Strzok’s text refers to a Department-wide initiative to detect and stop leaks to the media. The President and his enablers are once again peddling unfounded conspiracy theories to mislead the American People,” he said in a statement. ”

    Sundance, as you have already pointed out, so did Fox, the following text messages prove the media leaks.

    That lie from Strzok and his attorney clearly indicates they are wigged out about the revelation of the “media leak strategy”.

    If there is another interpretation of this, someone please tell me.

    Unless the President watches Hannity or personally reads here it is unlikely he knows the degree of corruption. Certainly none of his directors of doj, cia or fbi are going to inform him of anything, his Whitehouse counsel McGaghn thank goodness is leaving and hopefully he’ll take John Kelly with him and who really needs to be gone is Johnny DeStefano who is the never Trumper Whitehouse personnel director.
