Too Deep To Drain – Aspects Lost in the James Wolfe Pleading…

Perhaps a reset of sorts is in order to understand why and how the DOJ is covering-up the most damaging evidence toward the institutions of the Senate, the DOJ and the FBI. The discussion must first reset to a key distinction:

What we know of the DOJ and FBI events, is entirely different from what the DOJ and FBI have admitted to.

#1) The DOJ and FBI have never officially said, or made a statement about, the FISA Court having sent a copy of the FISA application against Carter Page to the Senate Intelligence Committee on March 17, 2017.   That knowledge has come from our independent research and review of the released parts of the FISA application.

#2) The DOJ and FBI have never said, or made any statement toward, the FISC application being leaked by the Senate Intelligence Committee on March 17, 2017, by SSCI director of security James Wolfe.  That knowledge has come from our independent research and review of the: (a) Wolfe indictment; and (b) the released FISA application.

#3) The DOJ never indicted SSCI Security Director James Wolfe with leaking the FISA application.  Nor did the FBI or DOJ technically ever state within the indictment that Wolfe received, let alone leaked, the FISA application.

Within the Wolfe Indictment, the FBI did describe with some detail the type of document sent to the SSCI and the date therein (March 17, 2017).  It was later, when the FISA application was released (July, 2018), when we could compare the description within the indictment, align dates and pages with the FISA documents, and put those issues together.

The three points above did not come from any admission by the DOJ or FBI, but rather by connecting information that was produced in individual and unrelated releases.

How we gained knowledge is very important and being overlooked/conflated in discussion.

As a consequence of what was never officially released, the DOJ is not “technically” covering-up these issues within the James Wolfe pleading;  rather, the DOJ is simply continuing a process of not revealing information that would be highly damaging to the Senate Intelligence Committee and the FBI/DOJ.

However, accepting the DOJ and FBI have never officially gone on record is also the baseline to understand that James Wolfe cannot be striking a plea deal, accepting a lesser charge, to avoid being charged with a crime he was never indicted for; and the DOJ/FBI have never said existed.

Wolfe was charged with three counts of lying to the FBI. In his agreement Wolfe has plead guilty to one count lying to the FBI.  James Wolfe cannot be striking a plea deal, accepting a lesser charge, to avoid being charged with a crime he was never charged with; and, *more importantly* the DOJ/FBI have never said existed.

If there was a plea in return for cooperation on other indicted persons, James Wolfe would not be sentenced until AFTER all assistance had been given in those other cases, so that if he backed out, the heavier charges could be brought. Additionally, any plea that requires cooperation is spelled out within the plea document that’s filed with the Court. If there’s cooperation the court must be informed so the court can take that into account for sentencing.  None of that is present in THIS PLEA agreement.

The fact the DOJ never charged Wolfe with leaking the FISA application; and the fact the DOJ never even admitted to giving the FISA application to the SSCI; is the baseline for the DOJ and FBI to be covering up the bigger untold story.

Remember, if it were not for our (and others) independent research we would never know the FISA application was given to the Senate, let alone leaked from within it.  If we were to go by what has officially been stated by the FBI/DOJ, none of this information exists.

Start with point #1 – the DOJ has never admitted to giving the SSCI the FISA application; neither has the Senate ever admitted to receiving the Carter Page FISA application in March 2017; exactly the opposite is true.

When you consider all of the statements from Richard Burr, Mark Warner and the Senate Intelligence Committee members, going back to March/April 2017, the fact the Senate had the application is a massive story unto itself.

Several SSCI senators including Kamala Harris, Dianne Feinstein, Ron Wyden, and especially Mark Warner, made outlandishly false statements about the DOJ and FBI activity surrounding the Russia investigation during the time-frame when no-one even knew the SSCI had custody of -and reviewed- the application.  It is demonstrably true those committee senators were making false statements throughout 2017, and well into 2018; and no-one knew how purposefully false they were because no-one knew they had the FISA documents.  It was a secret kept easily hidden by the nature of the classification.

Even through today, there’s never been a single MSM article written about the Senate having the Carter Page FISA application in 2017; and/or not a single confrontational question to any of the committee members about their statements. So, there’s a typically swampian political motive for the DOJ/FBI to not expose those lying senators.

Secondly – The DOJ has never admitted, or outlined, the SSCI leaked the FISA application to the media.  Nor have any of the recipients (Buzzfeed, Washington Post or New York Times) ever admitted to the possession therein.  Again, that’s a massive story unto itself.

So when I outline how four issues are being intentionally buried by the DOJ and FBI:

(1) the FISC sending the FISA to the SSCI;

(2) the SSCI leaking the FISA;

(3) the media receiving a copy of the FISA; and

(4) Wolfe never being charged with the FISA leak…

…all of that is based on research and dot-connections that are not in open evidence as admissions by the DOJ and FBI.  It would also be intellectually dishonest not to accept that all of that activity took place during the current administration.

The DOJ and FBI have never officially outlined any of the above; and the DOJ/FBI have never been questioned on record to get an admission for any of the above.

The decision to protect the Senate and the institutions of the DOJ and FBI was made long before James Wolfe was indicted in June 2018.   It was likely an outcome of those earlier decisions -to keep this damaging FISA information hidden- that led to James Wolfe never being charged with leaks of classified information.

The “cover-up” per se’, is in the fact(s) the DOJ and FBI have never outlined to the American public that James Wolfe received and leaked the classified FISA application.

The decision not to inform the public, or to outline the truth behind the events, is factual.

That decision is a fact because officials have never made statements outlining what is known by those of us who have done the legwork.  That decision is also hidden by a complicit main-stream media.

The motive behind that decision is open to interpretation; however, the most likely motive for the DOJ and FBI to hide all of this is nothing more than a typically swampy decision to protect the institution of the Senate (SSCI); -and- to protect the integrity of the FISA court; -and- to protect the DOJ and FBI as agencies within the apparatus.

If you accept the most likely motive(s), the downstream consequence of an institutional Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell, all of a sudden having a come-to-Jesus moment around President Trump’s MAGA priorities, becomes a lot less altruistic and much more reconcilable as a typically swampian quid-pro-quo maneuver.

Last point.  Just because I can understand the reason for burying the FISA corruption  doesn’t mean I am at all accepting it.

Then again, we’ve no-one but ourselves to blame for the sense of anger…. if CTH had not dug into the granular levels of the issues at hand; and connected all of the disparate dots therein; we would all be comfortably ignorant to the corrupt horse-trading behind decisions not to pursue institutional corruption.  Instead we’d be enjoying a liar accepting a guilty plea; and we’d be oblivious to the bigger issues behind the buried story.

There is no appearance of a “plan” per se’, except institutional preservation (legislative branch); and POTUS Trump likely leveraging the swamp against its own interests to continue his MAGA agenda (executive branch).

If we can win the mid-terms, and replace the DOJ and FBI leadership, maybe then the facilitating co-dependent behavior behind James Wolfe will be confronted; this is not that.

    Trump’s job is MAGA. It’s not to take down Deep State. He could succeed in the latter, yet destroy himself, and it’s doubtful he could succeed at the latter in any event, yet it’s almost a certainty that he destroys himself if he pursues the latter vigorously. The Swamp will see to that.

    The Muh Russia conspiracy is to be passively pursued by Trump, then. He can only flow with it, and allow the Swamp to deal with it on its own terms. Meanwhile, he’s able to use it to advance MAGA, using the powerful force that’s available to him… blackmail. I’ve always thought that blackmailing the Swamp was the best way for him to navigate these waters. Prosecutions might make us feel good, but they are costly to come by, and it’s uncertain that they’ll get the right people and actually do damage to the Swamp. It’s feeding into the negative, and the negative hurts MAGA.

    Blackmail has no public face. It can’t be a negative, and cannot tarnish MAGA. Rather, it leverages the Swamp to enable MAGA. It’s the better way to go. Trump has a day job, and he will be judged a failure if he fails to execute that job. Nailing the Muh Russia conspiracists must take secondary priority to that job. Some will be jailed by the by, but it can’t be a quest, or the Swamp will rebel.

    In 3-4 years, Trump may be able to sign legislation reforming that FISA travesty. His administrators will have institutionally reformed various of the alphabet agencies. The scalps on his belt may be few in number, but would you rather scalps or making things better while achieving MAGA?

    The Wayne County prosecutor started nailing public officials a decade or so ago. She’s the one who put Kwame Kilpatrick away for life, but she also started working through city and township officials and bureaucrats. All good work, we’d agree, but you knew there’d be a backlash. After her quest became apparent to the local politicos, they lashed back and demanded that the County prosecutor’s office take a massive budget cut. I guess if she had enough cash to go after them and not murderers etc, then she had too much money. This sentiment is real. The Swamp will always protect itself, and it knows no political party. It might fall, but crusaders will pay a price if they confront it head-on. You have to get down in the muck and blackmail them on their own terms.

      “Trump’s job is MAGA. It’s not to take down Deep State.”

      The former will not be accomplished in a SUSTAINABLE fashion unless the latter is accomplished. PERIOD! The Deep State is responsible for the -NEED- to MAGA in the first place.

      This is why I’ve said it will take an entire series of boat rocking presidents to put a dent in the Deep State which has ingrained itself into our system over the past 100 years getting its greatest jumpstart in 1913. Unfortunately, I don’t see this happening. Bannon’s goal of the “deconstruction of the administrative state” is just a wonderful pipe dream.

      Railer makes very solid points. We cannot have a world war consisting of President Trump. He is only one man. It is a fool’s errand.

      Look in the mirror if you truly want to “drain” the swamp. STOP ELECTING THESE PEOPLE.

      For some reason I had thought earlier that Steve Bannon was on the case: How hard could it be to field true MAGA candidates from tens of millions of highly motivated Trump voters?

      Apparently it’s hard.

      POTUS must, instead, use his superior intellect and business skills to negotiate with the swamp to achieve his MAGA objectives. And I think so far he is doing a FANTASTIC job in that regard. Nobody else has both the will and the means to make that happen.

      Pipe dreams and ultimatums definitely feed into the negative. From where we sit it is just too easy to be armchair quarterbacks. And don’t forget the swamp has no small army of trolls out and about, braiding hair and cozying up to treepers. Divide and conquer is a time-worn strategy.

    [End Sundance quote from above.]

    Suffice it to say, the DOJ, FBI, FISA Court, House of Representatives, Senate, CIA, and extended “intelligence community” are up to their asses in alligators because: Hillary, DNC, Glenn Simpson, dossier, Holder, Yates, Brennan, and this committee in the Senate and that committee in the House and business as usual in the Speaker’s office and power brokering from the Majority Leader’s office and the slings and arrows of outraged Goldman Sachs, General Dynamics, the Fed, globalists, Hollyweird, Bloomberg, Soros, Progressive naval gazers, et. al.

    Unfortunately, the “commerce clause” loophole in Article 1, section 8 has morphed into an enormous mare’s nest of federal law entanglement. The Progressives are masters at utilizing “loopholes” to undermine the Constitution itself. They have also dedicated themselves to ruling the populace through legislation by the federal courts.

    You could bomb the cesspool into oblivion and start over, but how? The Progressives have quite effectively undermined the fact of ordered government which obeys the Constitution. Wedding cakes, weddings, women’s athletics, abortion, speech codes, culture signaling and government born and raised moral relativity are NOT of any concern WHATSOEVER of the constitutional ordered government in Washington, D.C. But the Progressives has successfully dragged such local concerns into the national government and picked up favorable ruling from the Supreme Court.

    President Donald J. Trump has all of this on his plate. He can either go to war with the rebels within or he can work to marginalize them to point of being essentially neutered. If President Donald J. Trump can keep his superhero level of unimaginable energy going for 8 years, he may be far more consequential than anyone can imagine.

    Those who want all the bad guys rounded up and put in concentration camps (prisons) are suffering delusions. Washington D.C. is a swamp full of lawyers who are experts at complicating the simplest acts and stacking up more lawyers and more conflict in pathway of resolution. In Nicolas Nickleby, Charles Dickens wrote: “There are many pleasant fictions of the law in constant operation, but there is not one so pleasant or practically humorous as that which supposes every man to be of equal value in its impartial eye, and the benefits of all laws to be equally attainable by all men, without the smallest reference to the furniture of their pockets.” Translation: If you are looking for equality under the law, Washington D.C. is the very last place that will occur.

    We Conservative Tree House readers and followers are focused on facts. Washington D.C. is focused on obfuscation and the manipulation of the facts. For six decades of my adult life, I have studied deeply and written extensively. Knowing what is true is of little strength when what is false is of no consequence to a large group of movers and shakers. That is where we stand. Should the DemonizingRats take the House in November, the rats and open liars will form the narrative and the agenda. What’cha gonna do when come to screw you?

    I place all of my faith in President Donald J. Trump. What else do I have?

    Bongino’s podcast today was interesting. Theorizing from the same facts as this thread has discussed, his take was that Wolfe is angry about being forced to be the scapegoat of the Senators who told him to leak, and that Wolfe’s sentencing hearing may out at least some of them.

    Dan B theorized further that the FISA so likely to have been texted in 82 unredacted pieces to the media through Allie W was, as several have said here, jiggered, and that it could have been so far jiggered as to throw the media off entirely on many key facts – all this time.

    The part about Wolfe’s being angry makes sense to me – I like it as a theory. The second part seems maybe a bit too good to be true. But it would certainly be delicious.

      “…that Wolfe is angry about being forced to be the scapegoat of the Senators who told him to leak, and that Wolfe’s sentencing hearing may out at least some of them.”

      Yes. Wolfe is NOT a man of principle, he is a professional opportunist who played by the swamp rules and now he is permanently gelded. Clinton used his pal Vernon Jordan to pressure Ronald Perelman to create a job at Revlon for Monica Lewinsky. Lewinsky tried to do nothing in particular for large income, but missed the swamp life. Wolfe, on the other hand, has been squeezed to take a plea instead of being thrown to the fates. He is now dead to the DemonizingRats and they should have reason to fear him. Color him Jamal Ahmad Khashoggi without a Putin or Crown Prince to “off” him. As a man without principle, he may very well decide that his ends justify new means and go hopping onto to the come-to-Jesus express and babble like a reformed whore to the Republicans.

    One comment that President Trump made during the Leslie Stahlin interview struck me… he said (paraphrasing) that he had always said (on the campain trail) that NY Real Estate was vicious and thus he would know how to handle DC. Then he got to DC and was shocked at how dirty and vicious DC actually is.

    To me, it seems that President Trump has had to adjust his expectations and game plan for being President. This is why it appears that certain things are not as we would like. He is having to play in a very dirty cesspool of swamp viciousness.

    Then I remember him being angry and disgusted with Mark Sanford – and even commented at a rally that he had put an end to him. Makes one wonder what that guy did to President Trump!

    Anyway, I have adjusted my expectations and accept that some dirty pool is going on right now. However, Sessions is NOT the right guy for this game. President Trump needs a guy like Christie (but not him, because he won’t get confirmed) to take the reins and shake things up.

    Considering all that President Trump has had to endure since he won, I would say that it is a testament to his gamesmanship that he has achieved all that he has so far – which is FAR MORE than any President ever has in the first 2 yrs.

    I think he will eventually get to a point where he can drop the hammer on the scum.

    Thank you, Sundance, for all the “connecting of dots” so that we DO know the truth 😀

      What a terrible waste of time for two years. Exposing, exposing, and more exposing, for what? Did anyone ever stop to question the majority of people Trump has hired during the last two years are probably the least likely people we would have wanted in a fight like this. Whether it’s government corruption or this bogus fight on border security his picks are terrible. To end an article with “Donald Trump ……because this….Jeff Sessions, Rod Rosenstein, Christopher Wray….isn’t working” is supposed to mean what? Put your faith in Donald Trump? These are the people he selected. Maybe our focus should be elsewhere.

      Speaking of the Mark’s….does anyone else remember a small new story that appeared for a day or two on talk radio about Mark Warner, at an outdoor party or bar-b-que, supposedly under the influence of a few drinks, laughing like a lunatic and saying something to the effect of “Woah, buddy! If you guys knew what was REALLY going on! There is some stuff that — well, I can’t say anything about it, but if people knew — it’s big.”

      Whenever I see Warner involved in anything now, I think o that.

    Great analysis and summary of evidence SD has put together thus far. This is what I have been thinking for a long time and have been trying to say in my own clumsy way. Also, the analysis has helped me put things together that I did not see before.

    I hope everyone here understands how important the above research is.

    Note how nothing will change until the current DOJ leadership changes, which is what I have been harping on for some time. We currently have the Obama DOJ and none of this is being investigated. You have to have someone leading DOJ and FBI who is committed to reform.

    I believe president Trump understands this and will clean it up beginning after the elections and into the new year. I guess we will see. I understand why much cannot be done right now, but I don’t understand why something big cannot happen in the next four months.

    This phrase seems all too apt to our current situation with the Swamp. The damn muck and secrets and bureaucracy is so deeply ingrained in the Swamp that it may be impossible to drain. The Big Boys that no one ever sees will throw a few small fry under the bus to make a show and the Sheeple will go back to sleep.

    And if Trump tries to fight it through by himself, he’s liable to find that the big frogs will find some Cassius and Brutus to do to him what the oligarchs of the Roman Senate did to Caesar. “plus Ca Change Plus C’est La Meme Chose”
