The Question No-One Seems To Ask…

Jon Solomon appears on Fox News with Maria Bartiromo to discuss his latest op-ed in the Hill [See Here].  Unfortunately, two years of congressional investigations that go no-where; two prior inspector general reports that conclude with no corrective action; and two-plus years of in-our-face corruption by DOJ and FBI officials, does not lend toward optimism when the next best hope sold by Solomon is another Senate investigation.

.

Democrats do not miss an opportunity to take advantage of any angle where they can criticize, attack and weaponize a narrative against their political opposition.  So riddle me this… Somebody has been leaking congressional transcripts to Jon Solomon and The Epoch Times (Jeff Carlson).  The unauthorized releases include testimony from: Andrew McCabe, Lisa Page, Bruce Ohr, James Baker, Bill Priestap and, most recently, Trisha Beth Anderson.

Question:  Why aren’t the democrats framing a political attack narrative around these unauthorized, unlawful and unethical releases?

expedited“?

September was five months ago.

The widely held view of the process is/was that Rod Rosenstein selected Robert Mueller as special counsel, and following that selection Mueller created his team. The perspective from CTH research is slightly different.

CTH believes that following the firing of FBI Director James Comey, the FBI Chief Legal Counsel, Jim Baker and FBI Deputy Director, Andrew McCabe; together with the corrupt small group that was involved in the prior year’s counterintelligence investigation; reacted to Comey’s firing by pressuring Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to appoint their preferred person, Robert Mueller.

Within this internal debate (May 2017); at the time this construct was being argued; is when the famous comment from Rosenstein originates: “what do you want me to do, wear a wire?” The corrupt FBI investigative crew; having initiated and continued “Crossfire Hurricane”; including people from the DOJ-NSD side (Ohr, Weissmann, etc) were pressuring Rosenstein to appoint a special counsel….. but not just any special counsel.. Baker and McCabe had the person pre-selected. That person was Robert Mueller.

Obviously we can see the reason for this FBI/DOJ crew to need a special counsel. As career corruptocrats they were operating from a mindset of mitigating risk to themselves and continuing to advance on the objective to attack the executive office through their investigative schemes. The key point here is subtle but very significant. Robert Mueller didn’t select his team, the corrupt team selected him.

    I don’t want to be right here, but the possibility of the DS strategically leaking testimony provides Andrew McCabe, Lisa Page, Bruce Ohr, James Baker, Bill Priestap and, Trisha Anderson with the congressional testimony each has given… ‘let’s get our stories straight’ co-ordination.

    Think Brennan’s the other bigger shoe is about to drop rant… The Dragon FISA… The lack of outrage shown by the FISA court… Pelosi, Schumer, Ryan and McConnell’s open defiance and contempt of President Trump, as if he were already finished off… The attack against The President of The United States, upon Romney’s Washington arrival… Think back to Evelyn Farkas, ‘if they knew how we know… get this out to as many people… they will destroy the records’ (WHAT RECORDS!)… The ‘by the book’ meeting in last days of BO’s presidency…

    Consider Rosenstein’s, Comey’s, Brennan’s, and Strzok’s defiant belligerency, coupled with the extreme secrecy of the existence of the Dragon Fisa. Now think again to that ‘by the book’ outgoing presidential briefing. The plotters, the heads of our highest institutions of our great nation, had already begun to create the evidence to destroy their foe. Their insurance policy has had years to be perfected.

    Why no DS political attack against the leaks? Could it be that Andrew McCabe, Lisa Page, Bruce Ohr, James Baker, Bill Priestap and, Trisha Anderson’s chorus refrain will be, ‘you see now why we HAD TO do it this way’.

      I think the records you are questioning would be one Steele Dossier. There is zero excuse for what they did and are doing regarding the illegal surveillance of Donald JTrump, and I suspect many others. These corrupt POS can try to spin it any way they want to, but when the documents are released unredacted as well as their text messages and emails, their guilt will be front and center and undeniable!

      I don’t pretend to know how they all fit, I just know it has to be important. Until we get into the O WH, we are sluggishly tied up trying to point out the obvious over and over again, of the early scam. And it was a scam… no doubt about it.

      Like your analysis however
      Why couldn’t these folks just meet at a Burger King to ‘get their stories” straight?
      Their full testimonies haven’t been released. Ohr’s was perhaps the most complete, followed by Priestep.

      I think these releases are disgruntled R’s and the reason the Dem/MSM haven’t constructed the counter-narrative has something to do with the question mark that is Whitaker and soon to be Barr.

      IMO Trump’s weird-ass appointment of Whitaker was a last ditch attempt to gain some of that “leverage” SD wrote about last year. This leverage will extend to the new AG as well.

      Whitaker got a peek at their hand.

      Having said that…..I do believe it is “last ditch” and that PDJT’s options are quickly closing. I believe he needs to get this thing moved somehow into the realm of the Judicial Branch
      Mitch McConnell’s recent actions indicate that POTUS will get screwed in the Senate.

          What makes you think Mueller is going anywhere? He just indicted Stone. The Flynn and PapaD cases and Manafort trial took literally more than a year to resolve and his office is still in the midst of it’s Concord Management case.
          And those are simply the cases we know about.
          Stone’s trial hasn’t even started.
          Mueller isn’t going anywhere.

          Impeachment is a political process and in the Senate the rules for the trial are up to Turtle.
          Do not underestimate McConnell’s ability to get 20 Republican’s to go against the President. In fact, he just did with the condemnation letter and is indicating he will do it again on Trump’s call for State of Emergency.

      Not buying that. “had already begun to create the evidence to destroy their foe”. What evidence? Why would the DS leak the transcripts to two journalists who have been pursuing the most significant uncovered news story in US history? Why not leak it to the NYT and WAPO?

      “Robert Mueller didn’t select his team, the corrupt team selected him.” Dont think I can buy that either. Why would McCabe later attack Rosie? Why would Rosie help make the case for firing McCabe? And, by implication, obtain the recco that McCabe be referred for prosecution? The recent testimony leaks show fissures between the stories of the participants. Potential for perjury/lying to Congress charges. I think McCabe, with the firing of Comey was desperate. A wingman (even if an ultimately untrustworthy wingman) was gone and McCabe was exposed. The text messages of Strzok and Pages that have been publicly exposed have proven disastrous for the small group enterprise. Imagine what the redactions show. I think Carlson and The Reckoning commentary lead in the right direction. I remain hopeful that the reasons for the delay in public disclosures of the redacted material and the FISA apps has to do with political timing. It seems to me that Mueller has nothing. Media suggesting future disappointment in Mueller findings. Shifty expressing frustration that Mueller isnt going after trump’s finances (and why would he?). They seem prepared for a disappointment.

      And on that note Trump follows up with disclosures as Barr begins the unraveling. All of that as we head into a reelection campaign. That seems to me to be the timing issue.

    Sundance was the spearhead in uncovering and sniffing out the entire story. To their credit, Bongino, Hannity, Carter and Solomon also have exhausted every avenue to get the truth out. The big problem is that the way things stand now, nothing will ever come of it.

    We’ve heard the tick tock, we’ve held our breath, we’ve shielded our eyes in anticipation of the Big Ugly, we’ve connected the dots, followed the money, read the books and enough blog & website reporting/comments/exchanges to reach around the globe. We’ve played chess and some worshipped at the Altar of Q. We’ve put full faith and trust in any sign this might break our way. We’ve written miles of comments supporting Huber, Horowicz, Whitaker and whomever else gets trotted out as finally being The One to do the deed. People here have argued for and against Jeff Sessions with such passion and determination some frequent commenters left over it. We’ve left no stones unturned, but what is there to show for it?

    Fact is, there is no will to expose what was done to Candidate Trump, President-elect Trump and now President Trump. There’s no will and worse, there is a dedicated, relentless effort to cover up, lie and ultimately end this presidency, no matter what. Half the public is clueless on any of it, another fourth of the public believes President Trump is behind all of it because he’s a Russian spy*** and the remaining fourth of us know the truth. *** Part of today’s Russian Spy theorists at one time believed Donald Trump was a plant to help Hillary win. Remember that bunch?

    The biggest fraud ever perpetrated on any nation in history is thwarted perpetually. It doesn’t just not make the front page, it gets no coverage unless it is reported as another hateful attack on Dear Hillary.

    Whatever ammo our President has, whatever bombs could have been dropped on guilty heads, it is beyond understanding why some of that fire power wasn’t brought ahead of the 2018 election. If the House had been held, if Jim Jordan was pushed to replace Crooked Lyin’ Ryan and as a result of bombshell info, many more seats world have gone to pro-Trump candidates, imagine where things would be sitting today.

    But none of these pipe dreams happened. Today, American citizens are frog marched out of their homes on dark, cold nights and we wonder when, if at all, this tyrannical behavior ends. The FBI Director is not held to account, instead he mouth’s off against his boss. The DOJ stoically maintains they only, always follow the law even though we know that their adherence to law applies only to their political opposition.

    Predictions and analyses continue to float. Maybe that’s a form of hope springing eternal. Hats off to the troopers that stay in the fight but there is about as much interest in holding the wrong doers to full account as there was in nailing Obama and Hillary on Benghazi. At least among the people that can make it happen.

Trump has answered that question a few times a day for almost a year now. $$$ MONEY $$$. Look at the Billions of criminal dollars flooding across the non-existent border in both directions.

    And yet decades later, the FBI found a way to get FISA Warrants on a presidential candidate and president-elect, with much less than what the FBI had to petition for a FISA on Zacarias Moussaoui, a French citizen who had been arrested in Minneapolis on August 16, 2001, when back then the Minneapolis FBI Field Office had received a telephone call from a representative of a flight school reporting suspicions about Moussaoui, who was taking flying lessons at the school near Minneapolis.


    The Minneapolis FBI became concerned that Moussaoui was training to possibly commit a terrorist act using a commercial airplane. It therefore attempted to investigate his potential links to terrorism. To pursue this investigation, the Minneapolis FBI sought a warrant to search Moussaoui’s computer and other belongings. However, FBI Headquarters did not believe that a sufficient predicate existed to obtain the search warrant, either a criminal warrant or a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant. Moussaoui, who was in custody at the time of the September 11 attacks, later was indicted and charged as a co-conspirator in the September 11 attacks.
    In her May 21, 2002, letter to the FBI Director, Rowley criticized the FBI Headquarters managers who were involved with the Moussaoui investigation prior to September 11. FBI Director Mueller subsequently referred Rowley’s letter to the Inspector General and asked the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) to review the FBI’s handling of the Moussaoui investigation. In addition, the Director asked the OIG to review the issues in an Electronic Communication (EC) written by an FBI Special Agent in Phoenix (known as the Phoenix EC), as well as “any other matters relating to the FBI’s handling of information and/or intelligence before September 11, 2001 that might relate in some manner to the September 11, 2001 attacks.”

Foreign agencies and or state actors would want to know details especially if connected to the coup or to stay ahead of the ongoing investigations. Safest way to collect information is through our media.

    Epoch Times is connected with China. This does not mean the Chinese are necessarily involved. It’s a pretty obscure mag that most of the country doesn’t know…collectors would be paying attention though.

      I’ve followed Epoch Times off and on long before I ever discovered CTH. Epoch Times is first and foremost an anti-communist – specifically Chinese Communist – weekly newspaper and website. It is mainly distributed in it’s English and Chinese editions in metropolitan areas with large Chinese populations.

      When PDJT became President they found an ally and became very pro-Trump. Anything implying that they might be connected to or run by Beijing would be a rather big stretch.

      And I don’t have any theories as to why they are being leaked to.

    It took my a minute to understand this post by Sundance, but I think I got it.

    So we have….

    1. Solomon suggesting a Senate investigation
    2. Solomon and Epoch getting leaked testimony, (that actually casts the conspirators in a bad light)
    3. Democrats NOT raising a stink about this leaking
    4. NO progress on the declassification of documents
    5. The corruptocrat deep state team picking Mueller, not the other way around

    This all ads up to the RUNAROUND! Stall tactics. Drag this out, and keep PT from making any moves. Its the conclusion I came to a couple weeks ago when I noticed this latest narrative about the Mueller probe “coming to a close soon”, and being spouted and repeated by a select few (Whitaker) and then run with in the media. BOLOGNA! The Mueller probe is NOT coming to a close, at least not until the Dems, deep state and media have established the “correct” impeachment narrative that they think will garner enough support in the House that they have a shot at impeachment (at least in the House).

    Weissman, et al, are the ones leaking this selective info, just enough to placate PTs defenders and keep them from rising up and becoming too vocal about the lack of any action against them.

    And to be quite honest, it reminds me of the “Q” bologna.

      Why would Mueller end it? Other than the obvious point about job security and a very powerful position, more powerful than the POTUS, is the fact that Mueller did not fully and fairly investigate Russian collusion. If he had, he would have questioned Glenn Simpson, et al including Hillary Clinton and people at the DNC. He would be questioning this FISA abuse as the dossier was the catalyst for the entire probe. If it was salacious and unverified, he could have ended the investigation before the midterms. He DELIBERATELY did not end it and even tried to play up his investigation to influence the midterms. He and his team had every intent on influencing policy and elections as well as covering up misdeeds. He has to keep covering it up until people forget about it and it goes away. He also can continue to influence policy and elections to his benefit. Why end that gravy train and face the music?

    So how does the meeting between Trump and Mueller at the White House on May 16, 2017 (the day before Mueller was appointed Special Counsel) fit in?

    CNN says it was a an interview for the open Director position. ( https://www.cnn.com/2017/06/13/politics/trump-robert-mueller-fbi-director-interview/index.html )

    But Mueller was not eligible to be appointed as FBI Director again, having already served a full 10 year term plus an additional 2 years that required special Senate approval. My understanding is that a 2 year extension was possible, but not appointing him for a new 10 yr term.

    This quote from an NPR report on this topic says, “That law stated that lawmakers had made a one-time exception and made it clear that Mueller “may not serve as Director after September 4, 2013.” ( https://www.npr.org/2017/06/09/532286723/special-counsel-robert-mueller-had-been-on-white-house-short-list-to-run-fbi )

    This is a question I think fundamental to the whole special counsel investigation scenario. Why were they meeting just before the SC appointment? There’s something to this. There must be. Was Mueller planting a bug in the Oval Office? Or did he align in some way with Trump?

    It’s just too much of a coincidence, and I don’t believe in political coincidences. SD has taught us well that everything that happens in DC is coordinated and pre-planned.

    Also, it’s curious that CNN is one of just a few MSM reports (that I can find) on this ‘interview’ on 5/16/17, and they reported it almost a month later. Most MSM reports on who Trump interviewed for FBI Director are like this one on 5/18/17 and Mueller is not mentioned at all: https://www.pbs.org/newshour/nation/4-candidates-trump-interviewed-fbi-director

    Anyone with an answer or just thoughts on this?

    Easy answer: the last thing they want anyone talking about or focusing on are the leaks. After Bruce Ohr testified, they immediately went with the Buzzfeed distraction Cohen piece to take all eyes and ears off of Ohr’s bombshell testimony. And it worked.

    Puzzling thing for me (as it made me curious when the statement was first made and reported), how would “Allies” know what is in the unredacted material presented to PDJT? Is someone leaking to them? Do they have burrowed spies in the top levels of our government?

    Not sure where I attached anything to Communists. What I stated about Epoch was factual. I also said no guarantee China is even involved. Not sure why the defense.

    Good they support POTUS.

    I think it’s everyone’s responsibility to know who owns which media source we are ingesting.

    All media should be questioned.

    I’m open for critique on my hypothesis on the “leaks”. It would take some convincing that I’m wrong though.
