Backtracking Lies Worsening – REMINDER: The FBI Counterintelligence Operation into Donald Trump *DID NOT* Start After Comey Firing….

Against the backdrop of a New York Times article attempting to justify the FBI opening a counterintelligence operation against Donald Trump the current narrative du-jour is to claim the investigation was considered as an outcome of the firing of James Comey in 2017.  This is factually false.

FBI Director James Comey outlined the specifics of when the counterintelligence operation began during his March 20, 2017 testimony. Pay close attention. FBI Director James Comey -together with NSA head Admiral Mike Rogers- testified to congress specifically about the timing and notification (first three minutes of the video):

Rep. Stefanik: [01:12] …”when did you notify the White House, the DNI or congressional leadership”?

James Comey: …”good question. Congressional leadership, sometime recently they were briefed on the nature of the investigation, as I said. Obviously the department of justice has been aware of it all along”…

Watch the first 3 minutes of that video. Notice the discomfort etc. We have previously outlined why THAT is such a big deal –SEE HERE– Comey is discussing the notification to congress that took place approximately a week earlier. Prior to that congressional notification FBI Director Comey admits to keeping congress in the dark “because of the sensitivity of the matter” from July 2016 through March 2017.

The issue of the counterintelligence timing becomes an even bigger deal when contrast with the recently exposed testimony from FBI attorney Lisa Page.  Pay attention to Lisa Page and then contrast it against CIA Director Brennan’s testimony:

Unidentified Representative: “We have documents that would suggest that in that briefing the dossier was mentioned to Harry Reid and then, obviously, we’re going to have to have conversations. Does that surprise you that Director Brennan would be aware [of the dossier]?”

Page: “Yes, sir. Because with all due honesty, if Director Brennan—so we got that information from our source, right? The FBI got this information from our source. If the CIA had another source of that information, I am neither aware of that nor did the CIA provide it to us if they did, because the first time we—”

Rep.: “We do know there are multiple sources.”

Page: “I do know that. I do know that the information ultimately found its way lots of different places, certainly in October of 2016.  But if the CIA as early as August, in fact, had those same reports, I am not aware of—I’m not aware of that and nor do I believe they provided them to us, and that would be unusual.”

Rep: “What you’re saying is when the [CIA] director briefed the White House 2 days prior to that, on August the 8th, or prepared for it, actually briefed him on the 10th, that it had nothing to do with any campaign. Even though George Toscas and Stu Evans knew about it.”

PAGE: “Sir, I would be shocked. I would truly be stunned to discover that the [CIA] director had briefed the president on the substance of our investigation or even the existence of our investigation. I would be—I can’t say it didn’t happen, I wasn’t there, but I would be stunned to discover that.”  (link)

Now take a look at what CIA Director John Brennan previously stated. Pay very close attention to the segment at 13:35 of this video of Brennan’s testimony:

Brennan: [13:35] “Third, through the so-called Gang-of-Eight process we kept congress apprised of these issues as we identified them.”

“Again, in consultation with the White House, I PERSONALLY briefed the full details of our understanding of Russian attempts to interfere in the election to congressional leadership; specifically: Senators Harry Reid, Mitch McConnell, Dianne Feinstein and Richard Burr; and to representatives Paul Ryan, Nancy Pelosi, Devin Nunes and Adam Schiff between 11th August and 6th September [2016], I provided the same briefing to each of the gang of eight members.”

“Given the highly sensitive nature of what was an active counter-intelligence case [that means the FBI], involving an ongoing Russian effort, to interfere in our presidential election, the full details of what we knew at the time were shared only with those members of congress; each of whom was accompanied by one senior staff member.”…

Brennan goes on to say the main substance of those Go8 meetings was the same as the main judgements of the January 2017 classified and unclassified intelligence assessments published by the CIA, FBI, DNI and NSA (intelligence community).

That January reference was the infamous 17 agencies report, from CIA (Brennan), DNI (Clapper), FBI (Comey) and NSA (Rogers), all who had confidence, according to the report, that Russia was attempting to interfere in the 2016 election.

Now, a critic might think that Brennan is informing congress on one thing, and Comey is NOT INFORMING congress on another. However, that angle is rebuked by Brennan’s own testimony that his specific intelligence product (CIA) was given to the FBI who were exclusively in charge of the “counter-intelligence investigation“.

We tackled this contraction last year. Dan encapsulated it nicely in this paragraph:

[…] Brennan gave Comey the investigative product -which had nothing to do with the Trump team- and Comey used it to carry out Obama, Hillary, and Susan Rice’s dirty work for them. Of course Brennan was in on the whole thing and is now saving his own skin by saying ” I briefed ya’ll on everything I had with regards to Russia, anything additional that arose please talk to my buddy Comey”.

Within his testimony Brennan was making Comey own the “Counter-Intelligence ‘Muh Russia'” claims about the Trump campaign. Brennan trying to make Comey the fall-guy for a Robert Mueller investigative outcome. Brennan knows there’s no ‘there’ there.

John Brennan realized someone has focused attention on Comey’s admission to congress that the FBI intentionally kept congress in the dark during the construct of the counter-intel narrative. Congress was kept in the dark during this phase because the narrative can only thrive with innuendo, rumor, gossip etc. The appearance of the investigation itself was the political need; the substance was non-existent and immaterial to the creation of the narrative.

If Comey notified congress, via the Gang of Eight oversight, the counter-intel narrative would have been harder to manufacture as details would have to be consistent. That’s the benefit to keeping any oversight away while creating the politically useful narrative.

John Brennan, facing the looming certainty of the underlying Russian ‘collusion evidence’ being non-existent, in 2017 was trying to give the appearance that he briefed congress on larger Russian election interference issues. However , the trouble for Brennan is his own admission that these issues were the underlying principle for the FBI counter-intelligence investigation. Brennan specifically says he gave his intelligence product to the FBI.

Additionally, “Brennan put some of the dossier material into the PDB [presidential daily briefing] for Obama and described it as coming from a ‘credible source,’ which is how they viewed Steele,” … “But they never corroborated his sources.”  (link)

The material within Obama’s PDB, placed by Brennan, is what initially set off alarm bells for Devin Nunes (early 2017) because the material underlying the PDB intelligence product was unmasked by Obama’s National Security Adviser Susan Rice.

This was the unmasking information that Susan Rice later attempted to clarify:

Susan Rice @00:51 – …”Let me explain how this works.  I was a National Security Adviser, my job is to protect the American people and the security of our country.  That’s the same as the Secretary of State, Secretary of Defense and CIA Director.; and every morning, to enable us to do that, we receive – from the intelligence community – a compilation of intelligence reports that the IC, the intelligence community, has selected for us –on a daily basis– to give us the best information as to what’s going on around the world.”

[Note, Susan Rice is describing the PDB]

“I received those reports, as did other officials, and there were occasions when I would receive a report in which, uh, a ‘U.S Person’ was referred to.  Name, uh, not provided, just ‘U.S. Person’.

And sometimes in that context, in order to understand the importance in the report – and assess it’s significance, it was necessary to find out or request, who that U.S. official was.”

The interview goes much further. There was a lot of news in that interview. There is also a tremendous amount of double-speak and self-contradiction; in some cases between sentences that follow each other.

Notice how Susan Rice contradicts herself about what the intelligence community puts into the PDB. Remember, Rice considers the PDB intel community to be very specific: James Clapper (DNI), John Brennan (CIA) and Defense Department (which would be the Pentagon and NSA Mike Rogers). And she states they would never send the President innocuous things unworthy of review.

However, right there Susan Rice is confirming the “unmasking” request(s) which can be pinned upon her, are directly related to her need to understand -on behalf of President Obama- intelligence for the President’s Daily Briefing (the PDB).  This was a previous question now answered.

This is EXPLOSIVE, and here’s why.

Remember, the President’s Daily Brief under President Obama went to almost everyone at top levels in his administration.  Regarding the Obama PDB:

[…]  But while through most of its history the document has been marked “For the President’s Eyes Only,” the PDB has never gone to the president alone. The most restricted dissemination was in the early 1970s, when the book went only to President Richard Nixon and Henry Kissinger, who was dual-hatted as national security adviser and secretary of state.

In other administrations, the circle of readers has also included the vice president, the secretary of defense and the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, along with additional White House staffers.

By 2013, Obama’s PDB was making its way to more than 30 recipients, including the president’s top strategic communications aide and speechwriter, and deputy secretaries of national security departments. (link)

♦Sequence. Unbeknownst to the FBI (per testimony from Lisa Page), CIA Director John Brennan was briefing the Gang of Eight [Aug 11th => Sept 6th (2016)] on the Steele Dossier. Brennan was also placing the briefing in Obama’s PDB, and the targets of the dossier, now inside the PDB, were unmasked by Susan Rice.

So the question now becomes: In addition to candidate Donald Trump, who were the targets within the Obama PDB material (placed by Brennan and unmasked by Rice)?

Well, in hindsight, we now know the answer:

    Disinformation was used by the KGB to indicate: “MANIPULATION OF A NATION’S INTELLIGENCE SYSTEM through the injection of credible, but MISLEADING DATA”. From this point on, disinformation became a tactic used in the Soviet political warfare called active measures. Active measures were a crucial part of Soviet intelligence strategy involving forgery as covert operation, subversion, and media manipulation.

      Watch out every one. The “KGB” is in fourth gear pumping disinformation that President Trump in December 2018 claimed he would be to blame and he would “own” the “government shut down” if Pelosi didn’t give him the wall. This is so so very fake because how could the author of “The Art of the Deal” take an opening, or any time negotiating position like that? The KGB is very crafty.

      I have a trusted source who says the “KGB” has nothing to do with the US Media’s interviews of Sen. Warner on Russia where none of the media ask Sen. Warner about his own connections to Russia and Warner. “KGB” says never underestimate the idiocy of American news media.

    Through the PDB..



    Stated differently…

    Like a Crime Boss…
    He sanctioned ALL ILLEGAL Activities.

    He Allowed them.
    Encouraged them.
    Used them for his benefit against Political and Ideological Enemies.

    He Weaponized The Presidency!!!
    The PDB was allowed to be accessed by so many individuals the “Expectation” of NATIONAL Security was eviscerated.

    He Could well have Enabled The Enemy!!
    Via Espionage…

    Espionage is the crime of spying on the federal government and/or transferring state secrets on behalf of a foreign country. If the other country is an enemy, espionage may be treason, which involves aiding an enemy. The term applies particularly to the act of collecting military, industrial, and political data about one nation for the benefit of another.

    Was Russia… using Espionage..
    To influence a Presidential Election?

    Was Obama… using/allowing/knowingly benefiting from acts of Espionage to try to influence a Presidential Election?

    “If that Bastard wins…
    We ALL Hang from nooses!!”

    H. Clinton

    Why would she say that?

    A crime so serious that it is punishable by means of death by hanging???

    She felt so strongly… The need to Win the Presidency “At Any Cost”…

    She Feared HANGING??


    She LOST!!!

    What was so serious?

    Imho, You Will Find The Answer in The PDB.

    It’s out there…
    30 some people.. had access.

    Did I say FISA?

    Literally 1000’s… Possibly Tens of 1000’s of people could be effected.
    Possibly… Many Many Many MORE!!

    “The President has put in place an organization with the kind of database that no one has ever seen before in life. That’s going to be very, very powerful. That database will have information about everything on every individual on ways that it’s never been done before and whoever runs for President on the Democratic ticket has to deal with that. They’re going to go down with that database and the concerns of those people because they can’t get around it. And he’s [President Obama] been very smart. It’s very powerful what he’s leaving in place.”

      Look no further than the NSA’s Utah Center, the culmination of decades of work. Obama was at the helm when the national metadata capture program was realized but he had as much of a hand in its creation as Al Gore did the internet.
      The breadth and depth and future expansion and use of the data those dark areas of government have and will have will render any and everyone in the US buck nekked to government prying, the algorithms will sort through it sifting, twisting and selectively interpreting it at will.
      I’d posted on the programs long ago here and data on the government’s use of intercept programs. Carnivore, Omnivore, Echelon, Prism and stuff still under classification and NDA control, there is a trail of intercept programs going back decades. In truth, there isn’t much we could have done or can do, many programs operate in a quasi-legal area of ‘we’re just gathering data’ or ‘we’re gathering it without the ability to determine the owners’ IDs’ or ‘we’re not operationally using it. Plus there’s the question of have the gatherers used the data to compromise those who’d interfere with their abilities to gather it – ala J. Edgar Hoover?

The mueller investigation is the ONLY thing currently protecting them.

          When the ‘investigation’ ends, President Trump will declassify everything and it will be released without redactions and that is what they are desperately trying to avoid because it will expose them all and indictments will follow.

    • BINGO!. ALL of this was to spy on Trump, put out enough dirt they found to keep him from being POTUS, One MAJOR problem. They did NOT find any dirt. So, like good little Communists, BHO and his Cabal MANUFACTURED the APPEARANCE of dirt or “smoke” . There are several problems with that FUBAR initiative. One it is unethical (they did not give a flying f about ethics) to “spy” or insert spies into an opposition candidate.

      Two, and the BIGGER problem. It is ILLEGAL to use the powers of not only the FBI, and US intel agencies, BUT ALSO foreign entities to gather info through us intelligence apparatus IE surveillance on AMERICAN citizens. Then to COMPOUND what they did, to try and make it look “legal” the came up with that bogus 3rd grade “dossier” to try and legitimize all the surveillance they were doing through “contractor” about queries in the US database.

      Then they use the phony dossier, spread in different tidbits to different agencies, (to make it look legitimate) to gain a legitimate FISA warrant to try and back justify all their spying efforts both domestic AND foreign. They used fabricated fraudulent info and tactics to persuade the court after a first attempt had failed. That my friends goes BEYOND sedition to treason. They also disseminated their phony propaganda through a network of biased complicit MSM…also at LEAST sedition if not treason.

      Lastly, they have used all the above plus the media and select members of BOTH the Democrat and Republican establishment in various House and Senate committees, senior members of the DOJ, FBI, State dept., AND most importantly the MSM to COVER UP their whole scheme through both either fake news, distorted news, or even worse omission. That may be the worst betrayal of all.

      • Now what we are seeing is the mis info prep for the end game. This NY times and the WAPO pieces are designed to try and provide both plausible deniability to the Cabal AND a plausible “scenario” as a cover for the cover. They are so F*CKED it isn’t even funny.

        They have told SO many lies, to SO many different people, they can’t unravel the knot they will soon find themselves in. Now, no matter how much more they try to make Trump look bad, and them look legit, people realize that it was ALL a lie, and they are CAUGHT.

        All this was to protect NOT HRC, but BHO. BHO wanted his legacy saved, and with HRC it would have been. He did EVERYTHING he could to stop Trump, Constitution , laws, and protocol be damned. HRC is merely complicit, BHO is the head of this snake. That is why this has all taken so long.

        The irony is the MORE they try and cover up and make excuses for BHO’s actions, the MORE guilty and the brighter the spotlight on HIM becomes. He was after all the boss. He knew, he authorized, and he condoned. He is GUILTY. That is what all the cover up has been to PROTECT BHO at all costs for his attempted soft coup de tat on a duly elected President.

        The proof lies in the still classified PDB, Lisa Page and Peter Stryzk texts, the FISA apps, and the 302’s. I believe with ALL my heart that Sessions KNEW, and was too weak to do what MUST be done…indict a former President and his senior admin for TREASON. It was simply historically too big for Sessions. He did NOT have it in him. Does that make him too complicit? perhaps. But, someone WILL take this mantle. Rest assured that Trump KNOWS, and so do other white hats. It WILL ALL come out, it has to. They tried to “get” Trump before he could reveal their coup, they failed, they THINK they still can get him, they CAN’T. He has them. Once they play impeachment, he WILL drop the hammer. Muller will look at BEST like a fool and at worst as a co-conspirator.

        BHO’s sycophants were merely following orders that HE laid out (Crossfire Hurricane). I believe HE is also in with both feet on the cover up. He MUST pay. He should hang, but the optics would be too painful. SO he MUST instead see life in prison. He violated not only the Constitution, but also the rules of law. He abused both his powers and the public trust. He violated his sacred oath to defend the Constitution against ALL enemies foreign, AND domestic. He himself WAS the enemy. Sorry length.

    I think you are seeing in the NYT article an attempt through disinformation to rewrite history and shape another narrative. It’s been going on for several years, including the Benghazi Video, the leaking of the Flynn Transcripts, Comey’s email exoneration, you can keep your doctor, RBG is recovering etc…

    What we can ascertain with clarity is the top of the FBI and DOJ weren’t working to keep the populace safe, they were mainly spending their time protecting the swamp and still are to a large extent.

    These people in another day and age would be selling used cars. They just really need to go away and be replaced by people paid to actually do their jobs. It’s like watching a 1-15 football team that sucks, then reading the papers throughout the season explaining to us how they are really a playoff team.

Not to mention O’s stellar morals and family values (sooo important to Romney).

                In fact, the day may come when Obama himself admits on the Jimmy Kimmel show that he was born in Africa, Indonesia, anywhere but here. Kimmel would start crying, the audience give a standing ovation and the media would spin for days on his bravery to admit it. They would convince too many that his story is proof that the archaic constraints of the Constitution show that the whole thing should be torn up and flushed, replaced with modern, progressive, One World Order, No Borders, No Countries style of governing. And lo, and behold, BHO should unequivocally be appointed World Ruler.

              I have been interested in learning who BHO’s “real/biological” father is since Barack’s 2008 campaign. To me the photographic evidence is overwhelming, as is the circumstantial: Barack was fathered by Frank Marshall Davis, a light-skinned black man who traveled in the same communist-sympathizing circles as Barack’s grandparents. They even all hailed from Kansas! The resemblance between Frank and Barack is amazing! The Dunhams were liberal enough to allow their daughter Stanley to hang with much older Frank and have her naked pictures make it onto the internet over 40 years after they were taken in Frank’s Honolulu bachelor pad. A man from Kenya, Barack Hussein Obama, was studying at the U of Hawaii East-West Center and met up with young Stanley. Details are sketchy, but it is claimed that they married. His further scholarly pursuits took him to Boston and then back to Kenya, where there was another (white) wife waiting. BHO Sr. ended up drunk and dead there not too long afterwards. Stanley decided to see what other exotic male flesh she could imbibe and went off to Indonesia, leaving little Barry w/ the grandparents in HI. Also, with Frank nearby. Barack even talks about him in his book! This is staring us in the face and Barack himself is daring someone to say this with that silly mocking grin on his face;-)

              I won’t go on about this anymore except to say that I do believe former President Obama has the ace up his sleeve and that is that he can PROVE he was born in the USA even if he is named for someone from Africa. It really wasn’t his fault that his Mom was such a hot mess, was it? Any DNA out there that could put this topic to bed once and for all?
              Remember how President BHO would always fly in his Chicago barber whenever he needed a haircut? No stray bits of DNA to be swept up later. Also, it was reported that he avoided eating at campaign fund-raisers, so no dishes with DNA that some nosy-boots could grab in cleaning up the table. He’s so thin. One wonders what he does eat.

              On further thought, I think the “salacious” details referred to by Comey are things that Barack thought up, figuring that Trump had quite the reputation for chasing skirt and that this dossier story of Moscow hotel room antics would stick. A little payback perhaps for Obama’s primal wound of not having an identifiable Dad. He was jealous that Trump did have a strong relation with his father. Same sort of problem with Bill Clinton. No Daddy, hence the pathetic bro-mance with the two Bushes.

    Now maybe I’m just dense but how does she get ‘US official’ out of ‘US person’? I can’t get there but somehow she does. Could it be because she already knew who was under the pseudonym, meaning that the narrative itself was constructing the PDB to fit.

    IOW, maybe none of those intercepts are real; they could all be falsified, created in order to craft a false record that the WH and the other dregs could point to while saying “it wasn’t me – it was in the PDB”?

    Crumbs to follow or to fill in.

      I think that was a slip of the tongue on her part. She’s unintentionally revealing that one of the names they revealed was Gen. Flynn, as outlined by Sundance’s “redacted” version of the Dem memo response to Nunes’ memo. Either that or there was someone else’s name they unmasked that was also an “official” of some sort that we don’t know about.

    I wouldn’t give odds, or place bets on whether any of the miscreants do or don’t face Justice, in this life.

    We aren’t even close to the end of the story, yet.

    B. Obama knew (From-Its-Inception) of the Progress of the FAKE-RUSSIAN-COLLUSION-PLAN because former FIRED CORRUPT FBI dir. James ‘Cardinal’ Comey, NBC Resident TRAITOR former CIA dir. John ‘Red Face’ Brennan & CNN Resident TRAITOR former DNI dir. James ‘Itchy Head’ Clapper kept him informed via his Pres. Daily Briefing (PDR).

    Is it just me or haven’t we been here before many times before. This whole stinky story (Brennan is back again) is like a ferris wheel… going around and around and each time it gets to the bottom the same players get dunked in the poop, and then a horrible stench bubbles up to the surface in the putrid swamp. Are any one of those foul bubbles going to burst at any point? I keep on getting deja vu.

  19. SD, Thanks for putting the NYT story in this context.
    While we’ve seen most of these clips before, and covered many of the points, what struck me in this reading was thinking again about how wide the dissemination of the PDB was–30 people! And now many of those folks have been dispersed to “news” channels, law firms and/or NGOs. Like a giant game of telephone all of their inaccurate memories coupled with their obvious bias has morphed into the ridiculous and unending stories about POTUS and the Trump campaign.
    No wonder so many stories and testimonies are contradictory and confused!

    And Congresswoman Stefanik is admirably restrained when she receives the Comey’s unresponsive answers, not to mention his blatant acknowledgement that he failed in his duty to brief the Congress (of course, Brennan had…but Comey does not acknowledge that in his answers to Stefanik).

    All that has to be remembered is this:

    The “Progressives” have declared Russia an existential threat to the United States. Even talking to a Russian is grounds for treason charges.

    Supplying any strategic material to Russia constitutes treason.
    Uranium is a strategic material.
    Therefore, supplying uranium to Russia constitutes treason.

    Anyone accepting money from Russia is a traitor.
    Bill Clinton took $500,000 from Russia.
    Therefore, Bill Clinton is a traitor.

    All private discussions with Putin constitute treason.
    Bill Clinton had a private discussion with Putin in Putin’s home.
    Therefore, Bill Clinton’s private discussion with Putin constitutes treason.

    We keep losing this in all the chatter about this fake story and that fake story. This is all we need to use to bring an end to this. The KISS principle is still alive and well.

      The white Christian Russians safely shuttled American astronauts to the ISS and warned Obama about the Boston bombers. Obama ignored the warning and permitted his jihadist brethren to murder and dismember real Americans.


    • DeAnna Vaughn says:

      Bingo. So in the minds of Democrats, Trump “colluding” with Russia is bad, but selling Russia 20% of our uranium is OK. SMH at the hypocrisy.

    On CNN’s new day program this morning with Allison Cammarata and that dude that looks like Goebbels, I tuned in for about 10 minutes only to hear her say “George Papadopoulos got drunk in that bar in London.”
    That has been debunked,…. somebody who is an anchor at a cable news service most certainly should know that. In other words she just lied!
    No problem, we are back on this worn out old story and I’m going to just lie my ass off about it.

    When are we going to demand that these people walk in and out the front door of that building like anybody else visiting the CNN tower in Atlanta or elsewhere, so that we can face to face call out dishonest frauds like Allison Cammarata???



    We have known, certainly since the beginning of 2018, that the FBI was already criminally complicit (acting with partisan bias against Trump) earlier than July 2016, because that criminal activity was shut down by Adm. Rogers on April 18, 2016. The day after that, April 19, 2016, Mary Jacoby, the wife of Fusion-GPS’s Glenn Simpson, “visited” the White House — and the new plan, to get fake intelligence info to get a FISA warrant, began. The first report within the consequent Steele dossier was presented to the FBI in June 2016.

    Mary Jacoby’s April 2016 visit to the White House, immediately following the shut-down of their FBI-sanctioned but unauthorized intelligence “queries”, is the smoking gun, the central fact, that lays bare any and all attempts to exonerate the FBI based upon a supposed-legitimate “Crossfire Hurricane” started in July 2016. They were simply suborned long before, probably going back to the very beginnings of Fusion-GPS, many years earlier. It also directly implicates Obama/Soetoro, the Fake President, as being at the center of it all. Mary Jacoby didn’t visit the FBI, after all.

    I truly admire the effort and energy Sundance puts into his efforts to keep alive this tale of treachery and treason. It seems quite likely that no one in Government even remembers any of this happened last year, and most assuredly, nothing is ever going to alter the fact that the entire bureaucracy is riddled and rotten to the core with Socialist Fascist traitors and criminals of every type. Year after year we learn more about them, know who many of them are, can detail countless felonies committed by many named and documented Democrat criminals…we hear of these things and realize:
    Our dried voices, when we whisper together
    Are quiet and meaningless
    As wind in dry grass
    Or rats’ feet over broken glass
    In our dry cellar.
    Nothing will ever be done.

    I was reading a James Comey biography on Wikipedia and saw this:
    “OPM hack
    In June 2015, the United States Office of Personnel Management (OPM) announced that it had been the target of a data breach targeting the records of as many as four million people.[97] Later, Comey put the number at 18 million.[98] The Washington Post has reported that the attack originated in China, citing unnamed government officials.[99] Comey said: “It is a very big deal from a national security perspective and from a counterintelligence perspective. It’s a treasure trove of information about everybody who has worked for, tried to work for, or works for the United States government.”

    Doesn’t this explain a lot about much of the treasonous behavior in DC? Blackmail by the Chinese would do it! Which again illustrates why we cannot continue long our system of government unless we have a moral people and leadership.

      Didn’t take much to hack H Clintons unsecured server! Comey lied again, no hacking took place. All that info was unsecured and the Chinese just copied it.

    Obvious shill. If you truly felt this way you wouldn’t be wasting your time on this story, reading or commenting. Coming here to spread “blackpills” is a tactic.

    Knowing who the key players are, the time line that has emerged and testimony, it is gratifying to see the plot emerge through the red herring MSM reports, excuses, lies, etc. The sleuthing to date is much appreciated, and I thank all those who have been involved.

    If as much spying on US citizens went on/is going on, I can imagine the blackmail potential of just about everyone in DC. They all seem to have interconnected lives if you look back far enough. If I had dirt on x, and x had dirt on me, we’d probably agree to leave each other alone. Multiplied by 1000’s. Add in some really nasty actors (fill in your politician of choice) who seem to cause their enemies to commit suicide, and you get our star lineup.

    I am honestly amazed that “they” haven’t found something legitimate to use on Trump. That they haven’t makes me constantly reassess our president. I voted for him with caution, but am becoming more of a champion as time goes on.
