Trey Gowdy Draws Distinction – McCabe Ain’t Talking About “Crossfire Hurricane”…

This is one of those rare interviews where granular substance surfaces.  On a particular issue Trey Gowdy is a valuable SME.  Gowdy has seen all of the classified documentary evidence that surrounds the July 31, 2016, FBI counterintelligence operation against the Trump campaign to include Crossfire Hurricane FISA documents, and issues related to “spygate”.  Gowdy was one of the few who reviewed all source documents.

In this interview Gowdy draws a distinction between 2016 CH (spygate) and what Andrew McCabe is discussing; highlighting how the investigative issues McCabe continues to talk about are the two additional FBI investigations, one counterintelligence and one criminal, McCabe started on May 10th, 2017. WATCH:

.

For sake of brevity there are essentially three investigations: ♦One counterintelligence investigation known as Crossfire Hurricane, began on July 31, 2016, into the Trump campaign and possible Russia involvement.  ♦One counterintelligence investigation that McCabe started on May 10th, 2017, (Trump as the target w/Russia); and ♦one criminal investigation (Trump obstruction) that also began on May 10th, 2017.

In the first investigation (Crossfire Hurricane), presumably the defensive -albeit obtuse- position of the FBI is that Trump wasn’t a specific target.  [It would be too toxic for the Obama DOJ and FBI to directly admit they were investigating an opponent’s political campaign] However, in the second set of McCabe personal investigations, Trump was definitely the target.

If we take what Gowdy is saying; and overlay Robert Mueller absorbing McCabe’s investigations; and then overlay Devin Nunes recent statements about the August 2nd, 2017 Rosenstein origination memo; a picture emerges.

Likely the first task Mueller took on was the immediate two McCabe investigations, from May 10th, 2017, where Trump was the direct target.  However, as that phase of the Mueller probe found nothing of substance (likely with the August 2nd clarification memo), Mueller evolves into investigating the original premise behind 2016 Crossfire Hurricane (the trump campaign) which contained specific targets (Flynn, Manafort, Page, Papadopoulos) and specific evidence (Ohr/Steele Dossier).

Targets of 2016 “spygate”, aka Crossfire Hurricane:

Accepting the absurd McCabe premise that President Trump was an asset of a foreign government, it would stand to reason a certain level of urgency would dictate the investigative process of Robert Mueller.

Mueller likely first investigated and concluded the two McCabe claims.

This would reconcile with John Dowd recently telling ABC that Mueller informed President Trump’s counsel that the President was no longer a direct “target” of the investigation, yet the investigation would continue with President Trump as a “witness/subject”.

PHILLIPS: Do you respect what Mueller is doing? I know you know Mueller well.

DOWD: Well, I respected it in the beginning. And I started out. And I– it’s my s– my style is I always trust the other side, until I didn’t. In my opinion, on March 5th [2018], we were done. He had everything. He said he had everything. He told me that no one had lied. He told me they had every document we asked for. He told me that it was nothing more. He told me that the president was not a target. That is, he did not have any exposure, that he was a witness subject, which is perfectly normal for someone’s conduct you’re looking at, but they don’t have exposure. (link)

    And by theoretically continuing to investigate the later two charges, they can use them as cover for keeping the whole thing going to cover up the shenanigans in setting the first one in motion…neat trick that is.

          Andy looked pretty cocky on 60 minutes. The last couple appearances he looks like Lee Harvey McCabe. Patsy! He walked right into it. He knows it! He framed this as a mccabe v Rosey batlle. Now, people are walking away. Strok, Page, and Baker are all pointing the figure at him. potus, Sessions, whittaker, Barr, Rosen are lining up behind Rosey. McCabe miscalculated. He is gonna take the fall. Note the silence from clapper, brennan, and comey! McCabe will be portrayed as a power hungry snake who wanted Comeys job. He helped out HRC hoping she would fire comey and give him the gig.

If his house hasn’t already been broken into, that is.

            I hate Sessions, The Plan, and 64D chess. But SD raises a very intriguing Mueller point.
            Comey is fired
            1- McCabe is terrified PDJT will discover the small group
            2- mccabe opens 2 new FBI investigations in 2017
            3- rosenstein knows about it and knows mccabe is going off the deep end
            4- rosenstein was never involved in CF Hurricane or the small group
            5- No way rosey is ever going to throw in with mccabe and the small group. Too much exposure. He has to play in the middle on this one
            6- Mccabe’s crew is dangerous. Rosey can not take them on alone. And he can’t be a Trump toady or the media will eat him and PDJT for lunch
            7- Enter Mueller. RR is out of danger. Mccabe is nuetered. PDJT did nothing
            8- Marine Muller and Marine Dowd agree on full cooperation by PDJT and a fair shake from Mueller
            9- 3/2018 Dowd feels double crossed and mueller is a black hat
            10- What Dowd does not realize is that Mueller has closed down the 2 Mccabe FBI investiagtions
            11- Mueller cant tell him this because Mueller has to circle back to CF Hurricane
            12- Why???
            13 Mueller was selected and has obama and clinton loyalists on the team. He needs to get at FISA abuse without tipping his hand to Weismann and company. How would he do this? Well, by looking at the Comey CF Hurricane “evidence” he is actually exposing the FISA abuse. He is laying down breadcrumbs for the IG, Barr, and a new SC.
            14 Whats going on in the meantime? Whittaker and company have cleaned out the DOJ and FBI of most of the small group. Fired, resigned, demoted

            We are looking at mueller the wrong way. He has done nothing to harm PDJT becuase there is nothing to find. He c@ck blocked mccabe, he cleared Trump on 2 investigations, a 3rd is on the way, he allowed time for the DOJ and FBI to be cleaned out, he set down markers for Barr and a new SC. He took down a huge bunch of corrupt lobbyists that had connections to lots of DC elites, he has the media on his side, he has the faith that his report will be honest. If he gives PDJT a clean bill of health and goes a step further—“I find no evidence of treason, bribery, or high crimes and misdemeanors committed by PDJT”. Boom. Mic Drop. DC explodes. Trump declassifies or Barr appoints a SC for McCabe FISA.McCabe stepped into it. The 25th ammendment scheme can open a new SC aimed at mccabe and the FBI.

              Not sure about 1. – 14. above but to date, nothing but a big fat nothing burger when it comes to Mueller’s investigation of collusion. I’m pretty sure that much of the leaks, process crimes and other innuendo played by Mueller and team for the past two years, was nothing more than baiting the POTUS to fire him. Didn’t work. Now we see with McCabe’s bizarre stories that Mueller and dirty cops and especially Obama’s corrupt team all have taken a crap in their bed…..now they can sleep in the $$hiff.

                We are all just guessing but 8-11 make sense. SD indicates that Mueller closed out 2 of McCabes investigations. Dowd saw the continued investigation by Mueller as a back stab. But Dowd did not realize there were 3 open investigations and Mueller closed 2 of them. Mueller could not tell this to Dowd. He had to finish off CF Hurricane and that would take more months. It also seems reasonable that Rosey had to change the SC letter to reflect all 3 investigations for mueller to resolve. Mueller may be an honest broker in all of this. This is master level chess and we want speed chess. If you take a step back Mueller has shutdown the plotters, cleaned out the FBI, cleaned out the DOJ, and he exposed FISA abuse in a clever way. WE will know shortly. If he comes up with a dirty report like sundance thinks, then Dems move to impeach. But what if he gives a favorable report of potus? Can you imagine the media meltdown??? Can you imagine how fast the dems turn on Mueller??? Epic!!!

              I think what McCabe did with the Gang of 8 was hide his Counterintelligence investigation behind Crossfire Hurricane, in a kind of combination head fake and shell game, fooling Nunes and maybe Ryan. Trump was a subject under Crossfire Hurricane, and there were early reports about extensive electronic surveillance of Trump that went back years. I’ll have to look it up. Someone had a lot of tapes from wiretaps at Trump Tower, Mar-a-Lago, etc. I’ll be back with it.

This whole treacherous scheme must be FULLY exposed and prosecuted to the fullest brightest transparent sunshine that it can be subjected to. No half measures, obfuscation, redacting, sealing for eternity, or secrecy allowed. No one is bigger than the Republic, If we are to have laws, we must enforce them EQUALLY.

            This can NEVER be allowed again, and the ONLY way to prevent that is the harshest and, well, most brutal punishment the law allows for the perpetrators. PERIOD. This IS history, those complicit or responsible must live in INFAMY for all time.

        I see this a little different.

        Andrew McCabe opened up a portal of information to half of the country Sunday.
        I like to ask friends and family, who don’t watch national news, questions about current events. Those would be Fox, CNN, MSNBC or the 6pm network shows and they are either asleep or at church on Sunday morning. They all know I’m a political junkie, but only partisan to the politics of ‘bob’. My sister is a theater costume designer and I’m in construction, I have a good friend Bill, a traveling salesman, that goes by the name ‘Candy’ when she goes out at night. I have quite the diverse group of friends and family.

        Every story the left heaves at us at a blinding velocity, is spread through out the information world.These folks who don’t watch or much care about news, still get the information the left media machine doles out.
        Example: They all know about the Jussie Smollett ‘hate crime’, but they don’t know he faked it, yet.

        McCabe is trying to convince these same people that our President doesn’t deserve to be President, because he is a spy, for the Russians, and he’s stupid. And McCabe, heroically, tried to stop PDJT from destroying our country, using the FBI and DOJ.
        These folks I’ve described knew ‘nothing’ about this until Sunday night’s 60 minutes.

        This hoax and Mr. Smollett’s hoax are the same thing.

        Smollett’s hoax news is slowly leaking out, Last night local Charlotte news, mentioned, “there is some questions being asked about is story.”

        The timing of these 2 stories will paint ‘another’ hoax by Smollett, which is a huge story,
        then the FBI investigation, now on the radar, is going to be laid out in 2 weeks.

        Is Mueller’s report going to prove our President is a Russian Spy and a moron?

              He is a BIG loose end for the Cabal. He has a BIG Oedipus complex, and he couples that with a BIG mouth. Andy is now a “risk”. I bet he would sing like Ethel Merman if he was indicted. The Cabal KNOWS this. The Cabal CAN’T have that. I think ol Andy is making himself so visible to stave off the invitations to picnics in Ft Marcy Park. I mean these people conspired to overthrow our duly elected President.

              They have done EVERY dirty illegal thing they could to oust Trump (no doubt assassination was contemplated too, if not tried). What would one more “elimination” of a big mouthed ex Cabal member mean? Most of the Cabal already knows they face the noose. They have to KNOW they are exposed, and the walls are starting to close in.

              REAL desperation for them is about to set in. Some will sing, some will deny till the bitter end, others will take the “easy way out” (think gun on the nightstand). Some will try to run, to no avail, and some will go down swinging in full dumpster fire glory.

People are now aware liars are everywhere- the news, FBI, gov officials, corporate officials etc. The internet and blogs like CTH collect detailed info and literally thousands pour over it communicating with each other, collectively putting our heads together – ferreting out truths and lies. People will scrutinize others- no matter how high the “authority”- hence the rush to censor internet communications.

          People like your friend are developing that guttural sense too. Look how fast people were able to sense something off on the Smollett reports- even when news outlets were pushing a political narrative. Once peoples eyes and ears are open – there’s no going back. Like Laura Ingraham said (and she was probably reporting what many others are realizing)- the FBI needs to be dismantled- because the trust is so broken there’s no way to fix it. The FBI is corrupt beyond repair.

          • Once you have seen how the magic trick works, you are not so easily fooled again. Once the people, ALL the people realize that they have ALL been lied to and played for rubes, there will no going back to the “old” ways. It will NOT end well for the Cabal, the left, and the MSM who have perpetrated this conspiracy. The REAL danger and slippery slope for the Cabal, left, and MSM is that once people realize that they were “played” on this, they will apply what they have learned on the perpetrators to OTHER instances in history.

            IF the TRUE controllers of this were smart (they are not) they would “cut bait” on the Cabal INCLUDING Obama, and let them hang (maybe even HELP it along). Then, they could “slip” back in the shadows for another attempt at total power AFTER Trump and time heals the wounds (time breeds complacency some will go back to sleep after this is all done…human nature)

            But no, the controllers are too vain, they think they are our betters. We are but moronic PEONS to them. They will go down swinging, never realizing that this time it IS different than all the other times. This time it IS their Armageddon (till it is too late to stop). Once the people reach the tipping point on this, there will be NO going back.

      They were not “required” to be silent. They outrank McCabe. They tell him what he can and cannot do, not the other way around.

      A big part of the problem here is the servile attitude which members of Congress take towards the people who they charged with giving oversight to.

      Here is the way the chain of command is supposed to work. At the top is the American people, the ulltimate source of authority. They elect Congressmen and Presidents to keep an eye on the government bureaucrats and make sure they are doing their jobs properly.

      The current reality is the complete opposite of this.The ultimate uource of authority are the government bureaucrats, who order the members of Congress around. The American people are treated like serfs whose opinions don’t even merit listening to, let alone being acted on.

When I watched Rosenstein in his congressional hearings when cornered he also spouts off that the doj is independent. To me that was when I decided in my gut Rosenstein was a black hat.

      Mueller is also reported in many cases to tell the lawyers the FBI conduct is off limits in investigations or court proceedings. That coupled with so many innocent people treated harshly and even convicted makes Mueller, in my opinion, one of the blackest of black hats.

        But I beat the drum with him anyway. He has lots of liberal friends (aren’t they all?) and even they are unhappy with Pelosi and AOC, so I guess that is progress.

      Rubio is a swamp rat, however he is now reined in by President Trump, the pseudo conservatisim of Scott, the power of DeSantis and the conservative people of Clorida.

      If you believe in keeping this country from becoming controlled by Marxists, you will vote the only possible way to thwart that. Marco Rubio.

      He will need to follow his Republican constituents, resident Cubans, the strength of the State Republicans or bear their wrath. Do not underestimate the power of inparty pressure. It trumps making a bad move of positioning the enemy in the vicinity of checkmate.

    • After 8 years of “President” Obama, and 2 more post-President, I am shocked (shocked I tell you…seriously) you don’t recognize a man emulating his hero, his fearless leader. Obama was hero to all of these mxyzptlks, the cult leader, who they saw feign incorruptible self-righteousness and moral superiority in his continual, blatant lying throughout his reign(!). Comey’s “higher loyalty”, don’t you get it yet? It’s cult loyalty, and all of them, in their self-righteousness and easy, unsupported pronouncements of Trump’s guilt, are merely the voice of Obama, echoing throughout the cabal (and in the media, and in the insane Democrat base). OBAMA GAVE THEM THEIR MOTIVATION, all of them; this was and is not just so many megalomaniacs, each of them abusing their high office coincidentally at the same time and for a common purpose, it was one, supreme megalomaniac — the “most powerful man in the world”, as President of the USA — who filled their own empty characters with his own greater emptiness, his own greater evil.

      Anyone who thinks anyone other than Obama was and is behind all of this doesn’t understand the cult mind, the subservience of all to the leader and his agenda. And it matters not a whit that Obama is not all that smart; he has mastered — made it his life’s work to master, and succeeded early — the art of easy, blatant, utterly irrational lying, to raise himself above everyone and everything else.

      If you really want to see justice done, you all are going to have to come to understand this, the cult of Obama, that brought this all about and continues to drive it even beyond his time in office. (The members of Scientology are even now awaiting the return of L. Ron Hubbard…and the idea of The Second Coming is millennia older than Jesus of Nazareth, or of King Arthur, the Once and Future King.)

      I will play the devil’s adversary. An expressed threat implies fear. Ask them what they fear.

      To win them over you need to understand their perspective and show empathy with that perspective. Repeat what they’ve said to show you’re listening. You don’t have to agree with the perspective. Build a relationship of trust.

      Stay calm. Their fear is real even if the threat is not. If they are arguing from emotion, you cannot win them over by raising the emotional level. Emphasize that the “problem” is external. The problem is not between you and the person you are talking to. This way you can both work on the “problem”.

      Fear always lies in the future. Show them an alternative future based on your perspective. Show them why your outcome is more likely. Treat them with respect and assure them they have nothing to fear.

    The revelation, after two years, that The President of The United States is the subject of not one, but two investigations is stunning for what that implys.

    The collusion investigation was paraded daily with leaks, Congressional and Senate hearings, 24/7 MSM coverage ad nauseum. It was the empty shill.

    The President of the United States has been under criminal and counter intelligence investigation for 22 months without so much as a rumor. This is where their case is found.

    The bravado, the arrogance, the book deals, the open defiance, and the boldness all stems from what they have prepared to release. Brennan’s -bigger shoes, all the way to the top, are about to drop- comments after Roger Stone’s shocking arrest, show his impatience for the shock and awe to come. McCabe’s self righteousness bragging on national tv is without fear of prosecution.

    The silence and the secrecy by many organizations, whom McCabe reveals have been fully aware, is frightening. This is where their big guns have been hidden.

    Were the Manafort, Cohen, and Stone commando show of force arrests meant to send a message to The President?

    In his New Years tweets, The President of The United States, advised us to relax and enjoy the things that were going to take place this year. He may have even distributed some previews to some very well placed people, at a recent funeral. And, he did tell us that if they come after him, he will hit them hard…harder than they have ever been hit before.

    President Trump has had more opposition than any American President since Lincoln, yet accomplished more in just two years than all the living Presidents combined. He is President by God’s design. I have full confidence in the strength of both.

    Trump-Russia is now a criminal matter, senators say after ‘sobering’ briefing
    BY MATTHEW SCHOFIELD AND LESLEY CLARK

    MCCLATCHY WASHINGTON BUREAU

    MAY 18, 2017 07:36 PM

    https://www.mcclatchydc.com/news/politics-government/congress/article151417302.html

    -snip-

    That revelation came after nearly the entire complement of the U.S. Senate attended a briefing with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein in a secure auditorium beneath the Capitol. The briefing came a day after Rosenstein had appointed former FBI Director Robert Mueller to lead the probe.

    “The takeaway I had,” said Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., “was that you need to treat this investigation as if it may be a criminal investigation. The biggest legal change seems to be that Mr. Mueller is going to move forward with the idea of a criminal investigation versus a counterintelligence investigation.”

    Graham said Rosenstein did not explain why the investigation had changed. But the characterization suggested that the probe had moved from a general inquiry into whether there had been collusion to one that had identified possible suspects.

      Beginning with the past administration of BO, they have had 3 years to manufacture,
      manipulate, and even destroy evidence. Our nation’s most powerful people, most powerful agencies, and even foreign governments worked to destroy an American President. I don’t think it’s Mueller’s and Weissmann’s MO to show up empty handed.

      The players write books, give speaking tours, appear on MSM. They have no shame, rather they are proud of their individual contributions. Something big is coming, and the entire DS is coordinating the take down.

    Let’s play “what if.” What if Mueller and Rosenstein are both on the up and up? What if the Mueller investigations were straight investigations from the get go that did as described: he continued the McCabe 2017 criminal and national security investigations of Trump as the target and quickly dismissed them as nonsense, then went on to continue the Crossfire Hurricane investigations of Papa, Page, Manafort, and Flynn, which are now concluded? What if the DOJ and FBI are NOT institutionally corrupt, but have only pockets of cancer that can be surgically removed by select firings. What if it’s not as bad as we thought and we have lost a lot of sleep for nothing over Mueller?

    The problem is, we would still be left with this fact: a small group of like-minded conspirators within DOJ and FBI conspired to remove a duly elected President, not through constitutionally prescribed impeachment in Congress, but on their own initiative.

    That should keep everyone awake at night, because until the conspirators have been charged and tried for their attempted coup, the twisted investigatory and prosecutorial paradigms they concocted remain unchallenged.

    Going forward, DOJ and FBI leadership can not be permitted to continue to believe that they have the power to remove a President.

    I’ve now heard multiple politicians and pundits point out a key fact. Namely, While Andy McCabe is asked in numerous interviews what specific evidence and fact led him to proceed with an investigation into the “Trump Campaign”, and the aquisition of a FISA warrant he immediately answers with “Trump fired Comey”.
    Folks, Trump fired Comey AFTER the investigation had already been initiated by McCabe. McCabe has never while interviewed on television told the viewing audience what the probable cause was that allowed him to convince his agency and a FISA judge to investigate American citizens, He never articulates the sort of evidence he would have had to present to a grand jury to seek an indictment. Rather, it seems (like we all have felt throughout this charade) that they sought evidence by squeezing it out of folks being charged with unrelated crimes after they bamboozled Judges and DOJ officials with unverified evidence.
    McCabe is a traitor. He should be prosecuted as such.

Henry Kissinger set this plan in motion in the early 70s and it coincided with the replacement of the so called WASP in our cultural centers; replaced by Jesuits and a nascent communist politburo who work hand in hand representing the interests of the Vatican and the British Monarchy through the ontrol of the Federal Reserve Bank.
