Report: Ford’s FBI Friend, Monica McLean, Pressured Witness To Modify Testimony and Statement…

If you thought it was sketchy that Ms. Christine Blasey-Ford’s life-long best friend was a recently retired FBI agent and DOJ official, Monica McLean {Go Deep}; and if you thought it was sketchy that McLean and Ford were together on July 30th when Ford was writing a  letter to Dianne Feinstein, likely making the friend Ms Ford’s “handler” for the operation against Kavanaugh; then it’s even more sketchy today with a report that McLean was pressuring witness Leland Keyser to shape her statements and testimony to the FBI.

According to the Wall Street Journal the FBI has text messages from Ms. McLean to witness Ms. Keyser, directing her to modify statements more favorable to Ms. Ford.

WASHINGTON – A friend of Christine Blasey Ford told FBI investigators that she felt pressured by Dr. Ford’s allies to revisit her initial statement that she knew nothing about an alleged sexual assault by a teenage Brett Kavanaugh, which she later updated to say that she believed but couldn’t corroborate Dr. Ford’s account, according to people familiar with the matter.

Leland Keyser, who Dr. Ford has said was present at the gathering where she was allegedly assaulted in the 1980s, told investigators that Monica McLean, a retired Federal Bureau of Investigation agent and a friend of Dr. Ford’s, had urged her to clarify her statement, the people said.

[…] On Thursday, a day after sending to the White House the report on its investigation into the allegations against Judge Kavanaugh, the FBI sent the White House and Senate an additional package of information that included text messages from Ms. McLean to Ms. Keyser, according to a person familiar with the matter.

Oh, and McLean’s attorney is…. wait for it,….. David Laufman.

Ms. McLean’s lawyer, David Laufman, said in a statement: “Any notion or claim that Ms. McLean pressured Leland Keyser to alter Ms. Keyser’s account of what she recalled concerning the alleged incident between Dr. Ford and Brett Kavanaugh is absolutely false.”  (continue reading)

If there was any doubt the “small group” of connected DOJ and FBI officials were behind the use of Ms. Ford, you can put that doubt away now that Ms. Ford’s handler, Monica McLean, has enlisted David Laufman as her legal defense.

They’re not even trying to hide it any more.

Michael Bromwich is representing Ms. Ford, and David Laufman is representing Ms. McLean.   The concentric Lawfare gang is working overtime, likely pro-bono.

It is beyond obvious now that Ms. Christine Blasey-Ford was not just some random ancillary high school acquaintance of Brett Kavanaugh; Ms. Ford appears to have been selected by a group of politically connected FBI and DOJ officials for the purpose of targeting Judge Kavanaugh.

All of these DOJ and FBI people are part of a tight network.

“Beach Friends”?  Rohoboth Beach friends?

David Laufman was the Department of Justice – National Security Division, Deputy Asst. Attorney General in charge of counterintelligence, cyber security, counterespionage and export controls.  He was inside the DOJ-NSD when the FISA application against Carter Page, and by extension the Trump campaign, was constructed, submitted and approved.

As most people are now aware the epicenter of the DOJ/FBI Clinton-Steele operation against candidate Trump stemmed from a collaborate “small group” effort of Main Justice officials within the National Security Division (John P Carlin – head); and officials within the FBI Counterintelligence Division (Bill Priestap – head).

David Laufman abruptly resigned from his DOJ position on Wednesday February 7th, 2018, without notice – citing “personal reasons.” {Go Deep} Mr. Laufman was one of the “small group” who interviewed Hillary Clinton, July 2nd, 2016, during the FBI email investigation.

Additionally, In his former DOJ-NSD position, Laufman would have held knowledge of the FISA “Title-1” surveillance program initiated on Carter Page and the “incidental” Trump campaign officials. Laufman would also have close contact with former Asst. Deputy Attorney Bruce Ohr; husband of Fusion GPS employee Nellie Ohr.

To see Ms. Fords life-long best friend, FBI agent and influencer, Monica McLean, now represented by Mr. Laufman would indicate even more evidence of the “small group” motive.  Again, as previously presented, each of these DOJ/FBI officials are defending their interests -and controlling their risk exposure- from current congressional probes into the activity of a corrupt DOJ and FBI in 2015, 2016 and 2017.

These internecine relationships is likely why Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley sent a follow-up demand letter to the lawyers for Ms. Blasey-Ford, requesting additional information to include the communications between the legal team and the witnesses surrounding Ms. Ford’s claims:

[…] I urge you once again, now for the third time in writing, to turn over the therapy notes, polygraph materials, and communications with The Washington Post that Dr. Ford has relied upon as evidence.

In addition to the evidence I requested in my October 2 letter, in light of recently uncovered information, please turn over records and descriptions of direct or indirect communications between Dr. Ford or her representatives and any of the following: (1) U.S. Senators or their staffs, particularly the offices of Senators Feinstein and Hirono, other than your communications with me and my staff in preparation for the September 27 hearing; (2) the alleged witnesses identified by Dr. Ford (Leland Keyser, Mark Judge, and Patrick “P.J.” Smyth); and (3) Debbie Ramirez, Julie Swetnick, or their representatives.

(Read Full Grassley Letter)

It would appear that Senator Grassley can see the outline of the group who orchestrated the smear campaign against Judge Brett Kavanaugh; and he’s going directly to those who framed the campaign for answers….

[Transcript]

MITCHELL: The second is the letter that you wrote to Senator Feinstein, dated the — July 30th of this year.

MITCHELL: Did you write the letter yourself?

FORD: I did.

MITCHELL: And I — since it’s dated July 30th, did you write it on that date?

FORD: I believe so. I — it sounds right. I was in Rehoboth, Delaware, at the time. I could look into my calendar and try to figure that out. It seemed…

MITCHELL: Was it written on or about that date?

FORD: Yes, yes. I traveled, I think, the 26th of July to Rehoboth, Delaware. So that makes sense, because I wrote it from there.

MITCHELL: Is the letter accurate?

FORD: I’ll take a minute to read it.

    Please, the whole idea of an alleged polygraph was nothing but window dressing for the ignorant and gullible.

      Everything she was adamant about came from Mark’s book and possibly a bit from Kav’s yearbook. I wonder if she realizes that Mark’s book is partly autobiographical and partly a work of fiction? Hmmm. Which is which now?

      She was deliberately vague in other areas so as not to perjure herself and to be able to fill in the blanks as more info became available. Otherwise, she appeared confused and somewhat befuddled.

      Her dad, former C I A as was her brother and grandfather, runs 3 companies (possibly DS-connected or fronts) located in the same building as F-GPS. He also provides private security for Jimmy C., Andy McC., Peter S., Grandma Loretta, etc. This is all incestuous.

      She does not have a license to practice in CA, contributed to a paper on how hypnosis could create artificial memories, Is adept at self-hypnosis (a body language expert thought she was in a trance), allegedly lied about the 2 doors to her PA home (extension constructed in 2008 with 2nd door as mandated by the city due to its use as either a rental property or business), and also lied about the Safeway (SF didn’t have a presence in MD until 1986 and was not at the location she pointed out until 2000 and there’s only one door). She is a C I A recruiter at Stanford (which recently edited her bio), works for a pharmaceutical company that manufactures the abortion pill, and allegedly has a criminal record (scrubbed 3 weeks prior to sending the letter to ChiDi). She was a party girl, allegedly an alcoholic, allegedly with 64 young men between her junior year of HS and when she entered college. She and her hubby are also allegedly in debt and that GFM money will come in handy.

      I suspect this whole sordid affair has opened the Judge’s eyes in a way that nothing else could have done. He may have a new outlook on what evil really looks like and may discover a new appreciation for the wisdom of the Founders to set up the system of checks and balances the way that they did.

      I think he will be very measured in his first couple of years on the Court but I hope that he will emerge in time as a battle scared lion and make all of us very happy that we fought this hard to get him seated!

    Remember Rich Higgins? May 2017 Higgins wrote “a memo https://unconstrainedanalytics.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/Political-Warfare.pdf … for President Trump on the political warfare that Pres Trump was to face internally from the Deep State, and externally from the media and like-minded interest groups in collusion with the administrative state, leaked out to the public.”

    Prescient little bugger, was he not?
    Rich Higgins was labeled a conspiracy theorist and fired from the NSC.

    As Higgins says in this interview “There’s a whiff of tyranny in the air.”
    And as been said here, paraphrasing, it is not a conspiracy theory if it really is a conspiracy.

    BEACH FRIENDS AND LIES TO FBI DIR. WRAY BY FORD’S LAWYERS
    First I will direct your attention to four critical dates: June 29, 2018 (the date President Trump had narrowed his list of possible nominees to 5 candidates and the date Keith Koegler, in his October 4, 2018 memo to all Senators, said he received the name “Brett Kavanaugh” in an email from Christine Blasey Ford. Note: In her testimony she said she had not provided Judge Kavanaugh’s name to anyone until July, 2018); July 5, 2018 (the date President Trump announced his short list); July 9, 2018 (the date President Trump nominated Judge Kavanaugh; and, July 10, 2018 (the day Christine Blasey Ford sent her 3rd WhatsApp test message to the tip-line at The Washington Post – saying: “been advised to contact senators or New York Times” and testifying that she was advised by “beach friends” prior to sending the July 10, 2018 WhatsApp test message.)

    With these dates in mind, consider what the three lawyers for Christine Blasey Ford wrote in their October 4, 2018 letter to Director Wray:
    “Kirsten Leimroth:

    In interviews with the media, Ms. Leimroth described a lunch meeting with Dr. Ford and Jim Gensheimer at a beachside restaurant with Dr. Ford in early July 2018, before Judge Kavanaugh was nominated. At that meeting, Ms. Leimroth says Dr. Ford named Judge Kavanaugh as her assailant…”

    “Jim Gensheimer:

    In interviews with the media, Mr. Gensheimer described a lunch meeting at a beachside restaurant with Dr. Ford and Ms. Leimroth in early July 2018 – the same meeting as the one described by Ms. Leimroth — before Judge Kavanaugh was nominated. At that meeting, Mr. Gensheimer says Dr. Ford named Judge Kavanaugh as her assailant…”

    To support both of these statements of “fact” made to Director Wray, the lawyers added in their October 4, 2018 letter the following sentence: “See https://www.mercurynews.com/2018/09/17/metoo-srurred-christine-blasey-ford-to-open-up-about-alleged-attack-year-before-kavanaugh-nomination-friends-say/.”

    This link is no longer available, but using The WayBack Machine the original article can be found showing the same headline – but when opened, if shows a different headline.
    A Los Angeles Times press account of a separate Jim Gensheimer interview reported that the beachside restaurant lunch was on July 11, 2018 This meeting occurred after Judge Kavanaugh was nominated on July 9, 2018.

    The lawyers, in writing on October 4, 2018, lied to FBI Dir. Wray. Beach friends Leimroth and Gensheimer did not hear “Kavanaugh” spoken by Christine Blasey Ford until July 11, 2018 – two days after President Trump nominated Judge Kavanaugh.

    So what might this lying to Dir. Wray mean? It is hiding the fact that Christine Blasey Ford’s “beach friends” were not as close confidants as Keith Koegler because he wrote a memo on October 4, 2018 to all senators that he received a June 29, 2018 email from Christine Blasey Ford saying “Brett Kavanaugh.” Keith Koegler also provided an affidavit but the “beach friends” did not. Jim Gensheimer never went public with anything other than saying he learned it was Kavanaugh at the July 11, 2018 lunch. Maybe this is why he was not able to provide a useful affidavit.

    In press accounts to more than one newspaper, Jim Gensheimer says Christine Blasey Ford didn’t need a house with two front doors, she needed two doors from the bedroom. In the LA Times the reporter says “[Jim Gensheimer] noted that [Christine Blasey Ford] had resisted purchasing a home without a second exit from the master bedroom.” On September 18, 2018 Jim Gensheimer was emailing the following statement to CNN and other media:

    “I’ve known Christine Blasey Ford for more than eight years and have always found her to be an honest, truthful and responsible person. She is a devoted mother and teacher, and a woman of great integrity. I have no reason not to believe what she says about Brett Kavanaugh because she clearly has nothing to gain and much to lose by going public with her story. I know from things she has told me, including her need to have more than one exit door in her bedroom to prevent her from being trapped, that this event was serious enough to have a lasting impact on her life.”

    Compare that statement by Jim Gensheimer to CNN, and others, to Christine Blasey Ford’s September 26, 2018 prepared opening statement to the Judiciary Committee:

    “The reason this came up in counseling is that my husband and I had completed an extensive remodel of our home, and I insisted on a second front door, an idea that he and others disagreed with and could not understand. In explaining why I wanted to have a second front door, I described the assault in detail.”

    Maybe she needs two front doors and two bedroom doors? Or maybe she didn’t know, when she was having lunch on July 11, what her therapist notes were going to say about two doors? Or maybe her therapist made another mistake?

    So what did Kirsten Leimroth say about when she learned whatever she learned from Christine Blasey Ford?

    For some reason Kirsten Leimroth did not provide an affidavit. Maybe it was because her interview suggests that Christine Blasey Ford did not have her therapist’s notes in hand when she first WhatsApp texted the tip-line at The Washington Post on July 6, 2018. Maybe not even by the July 11, 2018 lunch with “beach friends.” The first Mercury News version of Christine Blasey Ford’s story seems to lend support to that possibility. From a September 17, 2018 Bay Area News Group article by Julia Prodis Sulck:

    “PALO ALTO >> The fog was just lifting at Capitola Beach one morning this July when Christine Blasey Ford confided in two friends that she was bracing herself for an avalanche of attacks and searching her memory for anyone, anything, that could validate her story that U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh had sexually assaulted her in high school.”

    There is an NPR interview with Leimroth that goes deeper into what Christine Blasey Ford was searching for:

    “KELLY: When did she first talk to you about the events that she alleges happened at a high school party three decades ago?

    LEIMROTH: I knew something had happened in her past before, but I hadn’t heard any details. And then when it became clear that Trump was going to nominate someone, she got a bit agitated about it on this list of six. [on June 29, 2018]

    KELLY: When you say agitated, what do you mean?

    LEIMROTH: She was upset about him potentially being on there. And she told me something had happened with one of them in high school, and she hadn’t told me the name yet. And then when he was the chosen one of the short list [on July 5, 2018], she gave me the details. And she was trying to decide what to do.”

    “KELLY: President Trump has questioned why this wasn’t reported to the FBI 30-something years ago. Did you talk to her about why she chose not to come forward closer to that time?

    LEIMROTH: Not really because I know a lot of people that things like this have happened to, and they don’t talk about it. They are embarrassed and ashamed. And, you know, you don’t think someone will believe you. And so I don’t think it’s unusual at all that she didn’t tell anyone back then.
    She did, as it’s been reported in the news, tell a therapist several years ago. And I know that was one of the things this summer when she was waiting to get a hold of them [after July 11, 2018?] to see if they’d actually written it down because she wanted, you know, something to back up that she wasn’t just making up the story right now.

    The three lawyers for Christine Blasey Ford lied to FBI Dir. Wray not to “prove” the truth of what non-witness, non-affiant “beach friends” were saying in 2018 to corroborate an alleged attack in Christine Blasey Ford’s high school years — but that Christine Blasey Ford had told her “beach friends” about Kavanaugh before he was nominated and that her “beach friends” guided her hand in communicating with the tip-line at The Washington Post on July 6th and/or July 10th, 2018. The three lawyers attempt, through a lie to the FBI, to materially influence a belief in the credibility of their client.
    IMHO it’s just one lie on top of another on top of another, etc.
