Oh My – DOJ Inadvertently Highlights SSCI Corruption in Responsive Filing Toward Wolfe Sentencing Memo…

Well, well, well.  This is likely to be quickly brushed under the proverbial rug.  If you have followed the case against SSCI Security Director James Wolfe you will note the original indictment against him outlined, obliquely, how Wolfe took custody of the Carter Page FISA application and then leaked it to his concubine at Buzzfeed Ms. Ali Watkins.

The leak of the FISA application was a rather explosive issue not readily identified when Wolfe’s indictment was first presented (June ’18).  It was only possible to connect the dots after the FISA application was released (July ’18) and a comparison on specific dates, times, contacts and chain-of-custody, was possible.

In response to his indictment, Wolfe’s lawyers said they would force Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (SSCI) members to participate and testify in any trial.  This was a rather stunning approach.  A few months passed and a plea bargain was struck.  Wolfe would plead guilty only to one count of lying to FBI investigators.  The charges of the leaking “top secret and classified” intelligence were dropped.

Wolfe was not ultimately charged with leaking the FISA application.  We sniffed a quid-pro-quo.  We suspected Wolfe was instructed by at least one senator, likely  SSCI Vice-Chairman Mark Warner, to leak the information.  This would explain Wolfe’s extraordinary defense position – and the DOJ response therein.

Think about it.  A gang-of-eight member (Warner), who happened -as a consequence of the jaw dropping implications- to be one of only TWO SSCI members who was notified by the FBI that Wolfe was compromised. The ramifications cannot be overstated.

After the sketchy plea agreement the DOJ filed a sentencing memo, on ONLY the lying aspect, claiming –contrary to the original indictment– their investigation could not prove classified intelligence leaks.  However, the DOJ also argued for a sentence of two years incarceration, far exceeding the judicial sentencing standard for a single count of lying.  Again, rather dubious DOJ positioning.

CTH still believes Wolfe leaked the FISA application to Ali Watkins and the DOJ was in a tenuous position due to the strong likelihood of key and powerful senators being involved.

  Well, yesterday the DOJ filed a response to the Wolfe defense teams’ own sentencing memo (full pdf below), and within the DOJ response they, perhaps inadvertently, posted an exhibit (#13) written by the FBI special agent in charge, which specifically says:

….”because of the known disclosure of classified information, the FISA application”…

“known disclosure”…

I don’t think the DOJ meant to allow or file that.

Here’s the full DOJ responsive filing to the Wolfe defense sentencing memo:

.

As a reminder, we know the FISA court delivered the read and return Top-Secret Classified Carter Page application due to the clerk stamp of March 17, 2017.

That stamp date, March 17, 2017, and the content therein, matched the date and details of the original Wolfe indictment:

On that same date, March 17th, 2017, within the text messages of SSCI Vice-Chairman Mark Warner and Lobbyist/Lawyer Adam Waldman – as they were working out details of how to meet covertly with dossier author Christopher Steele, we find Warner going into the Senate Intelligence Committee SCIF.

SSCI Vice-Chairman Mark Warner is a central figure in the scheme to entrap the incoming administration under the auspices of the fraudulent Russia probe.

(Washington, DC – December 14th, 2018) Judicial Watch today released two sets of heavily redacted State Department documents, 38 pagesand 48 pages, showing classified information was researched and disseminated to multiple U.S. Senators by the Obama administration immediately prior to President Donald Trump’s inauguration.

The documents reveal that among those receiving the classified documents were Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA), Sen. Ben Cardin (D-MD), and Sen. Robert Corker (R-TN).

Judicial Watch obtained the documents through a June 2018 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit filed against the State Department after it failed to respond to a February 2018 request seeking records of the Obama State Department’s last-minute efforts to share classified information about Russia election interference issues with Democratic Senator Ben Cardin (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of State (No. 1:18-cv-01381)).

The documents reveal the Obama State Department urgently gathering classified Russia investigation information and disseminating it to members of Congress within hours of Donald Trump taking office.  (read more)

This DOJ deal with James Wolfe is one big, FUBAR, Deep State example of a cover-up operation.  Each side is deploying leverage to avoid accountability the DOJ is trying to preserve and protect multiple institutions.

The motives are all the same….  because the ramifications, if fully exposed, would tear at the very fabric of a democratically elected constitutional republic…

Decide for yourself.

  3. Hey people, just a few thoughts;

    Doesn’t this document tell us a lot more than we previously knew?
    It has been produced under Whitakers tenure.
    Did anyone else read this footnote?

    “The government has reviewed the letters of support written for the defendant, including those written by the SSCI and former members of the USIC. The letters share a certain common theme, which is perhaps best summarized as follows: the defendant appeared steadfast and honest in my multiple dealings, and I believe he kept secrets to which I was privy. What is missing from any of these letters, however, is a person who says they knew the double life that Wolfe was leading, and that they were aware he was sharing information from the SSCI with multiple national security reporters over multiple years.”

    In context of how this is being presented, doesn’t that footnote ring a loud bell? It’s saying Wolfe received letters of support from ex Intel and SSCI members. Presumably people like Warner and Burr, Brennan and Clapper. I guess if it appears Wolfe was receiving a nothingburger after being caught, his letter writers may feel secure enough to write him a support letter, to make sure he gets off no jail time.

    The footnote is saying the letter writers are either liars or fools and requesting the judge disregard completely as inadequate. Somehow I’m not buying that this is a cover up. I will buy that Wolfe flipped and hell why wouldn’t he. I’m also buying that they’ve lured “corruption junction” to write letters saying what a great and trustworthy guy he is and loyal to a tee.

    Ask yourself how that looks when it’s revealed Wolfe is a co-operating witness and has spilled how the unspoken part of how he kept his job for 30 years was leaking to the media on the request of the Chairman or Minority Leader. Oh look at these letters they wrote saying what a great guy Wolfe is. hmmm, perfect setup and public disclosure leading to indictments of Warner first then the others…just saying…let’s see

        My conjecture deserves no more weight than anyone else’s but here it is:

        Wolfe was charged with a single count of lying. Nothing serious there

        The 2 year sentence is just a “recommendation”, and is in excess of sentencing guidelines for that “crime”.

        My conjecture is we are being set up, and Wolfe will skate.

        The MSM can report the recommended sentence, and people will think justice is being done.

        Then, later, and largely unreported, a judge can say the recommendation clearly exceeds guidelines, and sentence wolfe to a minimal sentence or time served.

        This would fit the pattern we are seeing much better than yet another “flipped” perp fingering higher-ups, that -never- so far has turned out to be correct.

        Anyway, just my take,

    “Nothing will happen. The Democrats are above the law. Look at what the Clintons got away with.”

    As Sundance recently pointed out, it is HIGHLY likely that the NSA queries were being used, not just to spy on the political opposition (ie. PDJT & Co.), but also to make massive amounts of money and Ill-gotten gains. As SD also pointed out, giving Sen. Feistein’s Former aide $50M to keep all of this under wraps would be cheap to these people.

    This is MORE than about hating Trump…there are $trillions$ at stake. And DC is awash with cash…lots of cash. Here’s the thing…people don’t get paid off in cash….they get paid off in highly lucrative jobs, membership on company boards, inside info on new regulations affecting businesses and industries, etc.

    Point is, it’s nit just partisan politics driving all the corruption, it’s also money and worldly gain, and a ton of it. How many good people in DC have been approached and told, “Look, we know you’re in a financial jam/your daughter is ill/etc. Look the other way and we’ll make your problems disappear. If not, we can arrange for you to lose your job, for starters. Are you going to play ball?”

      Only Clapper is amiss: looking down, no smile, scratching side of his face, possibly but not certainly internally “equivocating”.

    Now that there is positive proof that Sundance’s outstanding deduction is correct, Wolfe used his phone to transmit the “FISA application” to this Buzzfeed-Politico-NYT’s “reporter”,

    Gee, weren’t we told the world would end if the FISA was declassified? Sources and methods? Foreign intelligence partners?

    One of the biggest rats in the rat media has had it for MONTHS. How come she didn’t “report” all that “broad mosaic” of evidence Comey was lying, err talking about.

    Poor little Ali had to do “Dirty Grampa” to make it to the big time, the NEW YORK TIMES, and she/they don’t report the bombshell evidence that proves COLLUSION!

    If there was jack sh*t as far as evidence in that FISA, we would have read about it in the NYT’s months ago.

    1. There was never a leaking charge in the indictment. The plea deal changed 3 counts of false statements to one count.

    2. The 82 texts equating to the FISA has had some shade thrown on it. First the FISA was 83 pages, not 82. And the signature, last, page is not irrelevant. It is vital. Furthermore, there 82 texts exchanged by the pair, not sent by Wolfe. (i.e. the back and forth number is 82, not the send number.)

    3. One new insight, not yet discussed here, was that there were 6 reporters he contacted, not 4. Further, all were young females.

    4. The pre Trump info dumps show general swamp problems but are not related to Wolfe. Better to do standalone analysis.

    After the sketchy plea agreement the DOJ filed a sentencing memo, on ONLY the lying aspect, claiming –contrary to the original indictment– their investigation could not prove classified intelligence leaks.

    Could it simply be that the investigation had to ultimately let the classified intel leak fall to the way side and not charge Wolfe with leaking classified material because the DoJ does not want to spend the political capital charging a journalist with receiving classified material.

    Yes, its overtly simplified rationale however it does dovetail neatly into the many down side issues such a prosecution would entail.
    By down side issues, I mean the very stuff the NSA and other alphabet IC agencies, see as throwing the baby out with the bath water.

    All the same, it does highlight the living space the swamp and corruption thrives in. Elevating the Untouchable Empowerment to get away with bloody hell whatever it is they want. It is the get out jail card played everyday. We can do this because if called out on it , they double down and up the stakes to a level not willing to be paid. Once, that of type culture takes hold, it’s darn well impossible to suppress and have accountability to Justice. In essence, knowing how to play the ‘red lines’ has enabled a culture of goverence where opportunistic corruption activity seeks to extracts power, money and/or advantages by an implied threat. Once a body has enough gamers, gaming the system it is only natural to see Justice become perverted to serve the corruption masters.

    The big joke is National Security is the cloak not to hide national secrets anymore, it is to hide all the lies built up over years.

    I wonder how all those that with honor and integratity that serve selfishly to protect this Nation on a daily basis fathom the parallel BS that has morphed and enveloped around, ‘In the name of National Security.’

    Scratching my head here… I bet they go to sleep at night knowning they are protecting ‘us’ from ‘ourselves’. I want to believe that is the case, yet it is getting harder by the day.

    I’d sure like to know the exact date that the FBI told the Chair and the Vice Chair of the SIC not to tip off Wolfe that their was an active investigation. Because, we know Watkins removed herself from her position rather abruptly one day before Wolfe was busted. He was under physical surveillance for a number of months before that December 15th bust. It would be hilarious if there was physical evidence of a meeting between Wolfe and an aid to any of the SIC Senators relative to this.

    I don’t think the disclosure that the FISA application was leaked was accidentally acknowledged by the FBI.

    Call it a hunch.

    Sunlight is toxic to the swamp. I feel as though this is part of a hidden plan.

    Note that in the past, especially under Obama admin officials, document redactions tended to be to conceal embarrassing or incriminating information. Lately there is a lot of evidence that suggests redactions on document releases are occurring due to the existence of grand jury proceedings.

    If the information about the FISA app leak is out in the open then I would assume 2 things:

    1) Grand jury matters are closed
    2) The matter directly involved Senators on the SSCI

    Someone will have to educate me on whether or not the executive branch (DOJ) can indict sitting members of Congress. I’m not familiar with the Constitution on this one.

      I agree, Chojun. We saw from the “Lovebird texts” how much review was involved before any document was ready to “launch”. Not that there isn’t plenty of incompetence in govt, even by highly placed U.S. Attorneys, but I’ll bet the DOJ is just as careful at reviewing docs at many levels before they go public, so the “inadvertent” inclusion of the “classified leak” phrase doesn’t resonate as correct to me.

      If that’s correct, why would it have been included? Maybe Liu wanted to signal the judge that, while something prevented her from charging Wolfe with classified leaking, that was his real crime, and the reason for asking for 2 years jail time. Maybe she resented that she wasn’t allowed to nail Wolfe to the wall for leaking and at least wanted the world to know he’s a classified leaker. Just guessing.

      SD is amazing at taking what look like meaningless facts everyone else forgot about and weaving them into coherent back stories. I’m not criticizing but the inadvertent inclusion of the key phrase
      “Classified leak” doesn’t resonate as correct to me.

    So if I’m reading this right, the FBI has the FISA texts that were sent from Wolfe to Ali right? And assuming they are not the redacted version then it would be a clear violation of the law for leaking classified information right?

    So isn’t the FBI required when they have this type of evidence to arrest and charge that crime? Why do they get to pick which crimes they want to charge IF the evidence is clearly there?

    So for example if there is a bank robbery organized by high ranking leaders within our government and the hired robber shoots and kills a hostage inside the bank, but because this robber threatens to implicate the organizers, the FBI can choose to ignore the murder and only charge the guy for robbery?

    What am I missing here?

    Can not Judicial Watch come forward with some type of lawsuit for the failure to charge for a crime? A lawsuit is allowable here would get us to discovery and maybe some deeper details of why only the charge of lying.
