Sidney Powell Highlights the Origin of FISA Abuse and Election Campaign Surveillance…

Sidney Powell is one of a very few people who tenaciously keep reminding media pundits about the origin of the political surveillance efforts in the 2016 election: the FBI and NSA FISA-702(16)(17) abuse scandal.

In this report broadcast by Sharyl Attkisson and Full Measure News, Ms. Powell reminds everyone of the 2017 published FISA court review by Judge Rosemary Collyer that lies at the origin of the political surveillance deployed by hidden FBI contractors.

.

The suspicion has always been that Fusion-GPS was one of the FBI contractors with access to the FBI/NSA database; and was using their access to conduct political opposition research.  According to the Collyer report 85 percent of all database searches were unlawfully carried out by FBI contractors.  There were thousands of searches in 2015 and 2016 during the presidential election campaign season until NSA Director Mike Rogers ordered an audit and eventually halted contractor access.

.

The issues may seem complex, and the downstream consequences might seem too wonky to absorb.  However, since CTH initially uploaded and presented the FISC Collyer report, in the shareable pdf format above, the 99-page report has been reviewed and read over 1.1 million times at the CTH SCRIBD account alone.

If the Rosemary Collyer FISC report was a book it would be a NYT bestseller.

So yeah, We The People are interested in justice.  Never sell the American people short.

When DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz finishes his current FISA abuse investigation there will be many people with a solid understanding of a complex issue who will review his findings.

        IIRC, Sundance revealed the illegal private contractors’ NSA database snooping, and Adm. Rogers shutting it down, many moons ago. If Fusion-GPS was one of the lawbreaking contractors, then in order to either get “legal cover” to use the illegally-obtained information thru a (now known to be fraud-obtained) FISA warrant, or simply to be able to restart the snooping through a FISA warrant, this “sausage” reeks to high heaven. It is political skullduggery of the worst sort: 100x worse than Watergate.

        • Watergate was a preschool operation compared to the Obama/Clinton rewriting of history. All of this began in the first term. When there was no pushback against Holder’s refusal to prosecute the Black Panthers for election fraud or Lois Lerner’s targeting of conservative groups, this rogue administration became more and more emboldened to the point of brazen illegality. Their little Hitlers in the DOJ and FBI, driven by the supreme Gestapo General Brennan, until they truly became like the Nazis during WW2. How many agents went rogue just because they watched others?
          It is officially time for the “good men and women in the trenches of the FBI” to come forward. Silent agents=complicit agents. Sitting back and watching=agreement and participation. Turning a blind eye=violating your oath of office.

              In my humble opinion:

              The diabolical brainchild of John Brennan later became the prosecutorial Frankenstein of Andrew Weisssmann……

              And, the Genesis of the “Matter”that is Now:
              When Clinton/Obama made their election truce at Diane Feinstein’s DC mansion in 2008, her position as SOS and ‘Foundation’ headmaster became the platform for a ‘pay/go’ shadow government–her government in waiting. Note how many Clintonites populated Obama’s cabinet and bureaucracy. Some sit on Mueller’s counsel today.

              Obama was not supposed to win, but she made her peace with him and waited.
              Under FBI probe, she couldn’t just leave the rigged campaign and surrender the nomination to Bernie. She owed to much ‘go’ to the ‘payers,’ and being President was vital to her staying out of jail.

              Donald Trump was also not supposed to win. After her loss, she/they could only make continuous war on his presidency, especially if she/they were to insure their own freedom.

              • I think the genesis was transnational from the start, Five Eyes/GCHQ. I also think it’s more plausible Obama/Brennan were ‘reached out to’ rather than vice-versa. For this ever to come to light, the myth of sovereignty would crumple in a heap, never to be revived.

                Giving further myth to the orderly transfer of presidential power, Obama retained some level of authority (over what Michael Glennon calls the Trumanite Network) while Trump assumed the formal Madisonian office. This may be the first time in American history the hidden half of our double government felt compelled to maintain a shadow executive authority. But then, that’s how disruptive the unvetted Trump was to maintaining the illusion of unity.

                Again, there is no AG, least of all Barr, who can open this can of worms and probably still breathe.

                  GCHQ and MI-6 certainly played a role in the beginning. Whether or not they initiated the action remains to be seen. While the Brits are aghast at Trump, Brennan had a more immediate and personal motive to start the ball rolling. He was the Director of Obama’s CIA, and could be expected to move up a notch or two to ODNI or NSC if Hillary won.

They MUST pay for their treachery…some with the ultimate price. If not, this Republic is done, finished, and we will go the way of the past “empires” who let their own corruption, immorality, deceit, greed, and treachery destroy themselves.

            What is the saying? No one man ( or woman) is bigger than the country. Well, the left says that of Trump, I say that of Obama, HRC, or any other of the Cabal. They MUST pay so that this shit is NEVER even contemplated again in hypothetical discussions, let alone tried. The TRAITORS must be indicted, tried, convicted, and VILIFIED in INFAMY for ALL time.

What are the consequences for them after the US leaves when they are still in country and are a known US informant? Maybe the “good people” of the FBI don’t have the courage to help Trump knowing Trump could be gone in 2 years if not sooner if the State has its way.

            Apparently there are no good agents in the fbi, so far no one has come forward with the truth. Wray is only interested in covering things up. The fisa court is corrupted and that court is run by the corrupt John Roberts. It remains to be seen what the new AG can do but I’m not getting my hopes up for him either. Barr is in a make or break situation for this country, I hope he does the right thing. I don’t think that the politicians in the D.C. bubble understand how pissed off both halves of America are. I look at how corrupt the left and the swamp is and my blood boils.

Yet from all of these alleged virtuous “rank and file” FBI agents, we hear crickets. To put a fine point on it, there is more evidence of occasional ineptegrity within the MSN than there is within the FIB’s rank and vile.

                  Ruby Ridge, 1992, was the first clear public exposure of just how far they would go to put down any resistance to the federal dictate. Waco was just in case you missed the message the first time.

                  The FBI sniper, Horiuchi. shot and killed an unarmed mother with her child in her arms. This was after the FBI killing of her 14-year-old son the previous day and wounding her husband just moments before killing her. An exhaustive FBI report concluded that the shot that killed her did not meet the FBI’s own standards for use of deadly force. Exactly nothing was done as a result. Nothing but paperwork and a settlement paid out of our taxes to the family’s survivors years later. Horiuchi went back to work.

                  Horiuchi was again among the FBI snipers at Waco a year later. His position was one of those shown on film as firing at those trying to escape the inferno. Cartridge casings matching his rifle caliber were found at his position and one agent first testified that he saw rifle fire coming from that position at the time. He later ‘corrected’ his testimony. Horiuchi walked free, a ‘good’ FBI Agent just doing his job.

                  The ‘institution’ protected him. That was ’93, almost 26 years ago.
                  The FBI was rotten to the core long before Comey arrived.

            We cannot allow Chief Justice Roberts to escape scrutiny and responsibility for his indispensable role in allowing Bath House Barry’s regime (and the treasonous Uniparty republican vermin) to destroy the greatest healthcare system in the world, either. There are others as well – Leon Panetta and his active role in the Benghazi Massacre, the State Dept selling MANPADs to the Mooslim Bruthahood and the president’s brother (Malik Obama) being a TOP LIEUTENANT in the MB……so many crimes, so many lives lost, so much EVIL.

            I truly hope we’re on the verge of a reckoning; the United States cannot survive as a free nation if these traitors are NOT held to account. We are sitting on a powder keg, that should someone throw the spark, the consequences would be incalculable. If we want the United States of America to continue being the Last Best Hope for Man, we simpy must cleanse our government no matter how difficult the task may appear. We ARE strong enough as a nation, and if 2,500 people go to federal prison, so be it. Let the chips fall where they may.

        McCabe’s interviews were nothing more than covering for himself. I could care less for what he, the corrupt Scott Pelley and other exposed Democrats said. There was no such thing as a soft coup. It was planned to be a hard take down of a sitting president. I have said this many that times those who were in on this take down are panicked and worried. They have been exposed via the wacky Democrats, MSM’s Nazi-type reporting of the news and the made up socialist attacks on American citizens. Lastly it seems that many do not trust the plan implemented by PDJT and military intelligence. I do and trust it every day and in the end we win.

      I am a huge admirerer of you and the work you do for all of us Americans. No worries, Sundance is right up there with you along with so many of my fellow Treepers.

      I am not the sharpest crayon, or the brightest bulb, but I am willing to learn and feel it’s imperative of me to pass on my new found knowledge at every turn.

      I am now a subscriber to your You Tube channel. I hope many other Treepers will follow me as well.

      I absolutely love watching your interviews. I can actually follow along and learn so much every time. You explain it at a level where we can all understand, and I think that is so important, especially with the knowledge and research you’re doing. You are one of the smartest women I know on T.V., and I have a great sense of pleasure that you are on our side, the side of searching for the truth.

      Thank you for all of the hard work you put into informing us properly, it is greatly appreciated by so many. It is truly an honor to see you here at CTH, and I hope you can answer some of our questions from time-to-time.

      Please also know there are so many standing with you in this fight for truth.
      Be well,
      Ma’iingankwe

      One, who is orchestrating this roll out, and two, why are there three separate dossiers? Back up? and if so, was McCain’s copy version four? To make it look corroborated by different sources?

            OK, thinking out loud. FISA aubmissions must show assitional information to renew the warrant.

            The first FISA was denied because it was too broad, and no dossier. The second one was accepted in October 2016 because the dossier was used. Then President Trump won. Everyone freaked!

            Then we had two other submissions? January and April 2017 which was authorized untilJuly 2017.

            So, is there a timeline of the couriers bringing their dossiers back to the FBI/FISC in order to keep the additional damaging information piling up to extend the FISA? Or were these all contrived at a similar time but with extenuating circumstantial fiction to keep the ruse going?

            And might there have been others, so this insurance policy could be played out as needed?

            And then we have text messages between Strzok and Page that they organized to change their information gathering strategy about 30 to 60 days after the inauguration. Somewhere around page 26 of the SCRIBD copy of their info.

KNOWING THAT, McCain had one transported by a colleague, and Solomon stated tonight that there were three dossiers, it suddenly dawned on me that there may have been enough versions, maybe written by the same people though, to update the warrant as needed every three months.

              Thus the different versions that John is describing. I just wonder. Only because the evidence might tie the couriers to the versions. Or visa versa.

                There are a lot of people who would go with you in your thought about VJ. One must keep in mind how powerful of a mentor she was to BHO. I personally believe she has more far more wicked, poisonous tentacles that is publicly known. I’ve listened to a lot of her words in a lot of videos over the years. She may be corrupt as the devil himself, but she is not stupid. But G.Allistar said in their reply to me yesterday about people…”…proof that men can be clever but immoral at the same time.” That fits VJ to a tee. But that’s another whole bag of demons.

                You know, as most of us here do, the whole FISA set up is rooted in lies from the beginning. So as events transpired, I could see (from their side of things) the need to continually update the paperwork. I really don’t know, but it makes sense. If you start with the truth to begin with, you don’t have to keep cya and aligning things to fit the agenda so you don’t get caught in a crosswind of contradiction.

                This is truly…Oh what a tangled web…

                WSB, I think you’re on to something about different, updated even, dossiers needed in order to keep getting FISA’s renewed. There may even be 4, or 5 versions out there, each one with the purpose to keep the shell game going forward since it now seems obvious that the players were well aware of how easy it was to get renewals with the judges, even getting their superiors to simply sign off without reading the applications.

                It’s like a version of the small company having a few know-it-all employees playing the get-away-with-stuff-under-the-bosses’-eyes game to a whole new level. It might not be treason but sedition seems like a good name for the results. In a small company the results are bankruptcy, with the government of a nation – perilously close to, what was Obama’s phrase? Oh yes, “Fundamentally changing the United States of America.” So yes, I can see her still in the handler position.

            Hey, it’s been a great conversation with you here this early am.

            I’m wrapping up a couple of real estate investment files for some friends, then it’s eat and go to bed and get up in about 3 hours and start all the other stuff over again. Always look forward to what Sundance is going to post the next day.

            You know W, there’s a lot of things we don’t know and there’s some things we do know. One thing we don’t know for sure is how all this is going to work out. We hope about Barr doing something, but even there, there is going to be a tenacious resistance against anything he attempts to do. I think SD call the general time frame right in saying we should begin to know in about a month. And we’re not even sure he is going to go deep. It’s a wait and see thing.

            Anyway, with whatever we do or don’t know, we are at least giving it our best shot to pay attention, be diligent, uphold intergrity and work with what we have. I believe many of the Treepers here would be willing do whatever it is that they would have to do to help restore rule of law, justice and respect for our Constitution, and to be of whatever help to our President that is possible in our own individual way.

            And you’re one of them.

            WSB,
            Following your posts…….Occams razor…….The simplist explanation.
            The dossier became dossiers upon need.
            Each one further validating the other, in that, after getting the “First” warrant, the second would be easier just by adding more to the first.

            And, if the same judge was used, I don’t recall, by the time another warrant was needed, it would be practically “rubber stamped”.

            As far as who is behind it, a “fixer” like V.Jarrett would be the most obvious……And with the Clintons we may be seeing some strange or unlikely deaths.

              I think this is the most likely the answer to the “multiple” dossiers.

              Just consider the known and verified fact that the “Steele dossier” was spread to multiple media sources by Steele himself, and then later those same multiple media sources were used as evidence to strengthen the FBI’s case for the FISA Warrant.

              So the conceopt of having similar info coming from allegedly different sources is a Deep State IC tactic used to give the appearance that information has been “discovered” indeoendently by multiple “original” sources. Of course that’s a huge lie – it’s all the SAME info from the SAME origin but covertly spread around and then republished by cooperating media as originally-sourced material.

              So why not create a few versions of the same Dossier and distribute them in a few different directions to give the appearance of voluminous, multiple origins of research and discovery of incriminating information on the target of the smear / frame-up.

              The key to the deception is that none of the origins (witnessesd who gave testimonies) of the raw, “incriminating” information are mentioned in the Dossiers. The conspirators could not risk having anyone follow up with original “witnesses” to confirm their allegations.

        2018/08/16

        “The network graph analysis indicates that the fellowship of the dossier is a close-knit group; everyone knew each other long before embarking on the quest to find the alleged Russian collusion. All of the project key players are related through marriage, family relations, or work affiliations.

        Sidney Blumenthal’s network is noteworthy because his email address book contains many of the dossier characters including Jacoby, Simpson, Winer, and others.

        A sampling of Blumenthal’s first 20 contacts (out of over 4000) shows an over 96% linkage to anti-Trump publications, most of these are from mainstream media sources.”

        The Blumenthal-Shearer memo is similar to the Steele dossier and reputedly written up by Cody Shearer, a sometimes journalist but mostly fixer for Slick Willy. Blumenthal is Sidney Blumenthal — Hitlery’s very close confidante with whom she shared classified docs via her email server. Sidney was also hacked. OVomit refused to allow Hitlery to bring Sid along with her into the State Dept.

        Cody is brother-in-law to Strobe Talbott, who was in Slick Willy’s State Dept. Strobe was one of Slick Willy’s classmates. I believe this 2nd dossier went to the State Dept. and that Steele was given a copy of it.

        Nellie’s dossier–we don’t know too much about yet; Bruce Ohr testified his wife was hired by Fusion GPS to dig up dirt on candidate Trump AND his family.

    IMO Sidney is spot on. This is the real story or as I call it Spygate 1 meaning all the illegal spying and unmasking of Americans to assemble a massive database to use as “leverage” has been going on for many years IMO.

    Then with PT’s win this had to be covered up and thus Spygate 2 was rolled out, meaning divert any possible attention from Spygate 1 and drown Americans with Spygate 2, night and day via the Trump/Russia Collusion fraud and frame job.

    IMO Spygate 1 answers a lot of the questions about people we have discussed who seemed to have “changed” in the last few years and IMO Spygate 1 will also lead to the truth about Uranium One and Spygate 1 gets you to the top dogs.

    So as big as the Trump/Russian Collusion narrative my seem over these last 2 1/5 years, it is and always has been the smoke and cover for Spygate 1 and Uranium 1 IMO.

    If Barr were smart he would add Sidney to his team and allow her to lead the investigation into Spygate 1 and Uranium 1 (replacing Huber) while Barr and team clean up and prosecute those who spearheaded Spygate 2.

      My bet without the vast knowledge and research of Sundance, and here, Sidney (friends, so first names), is 1) Ideological Marxist-Islamist cadre (Ayres ghost author of platform – Dreams of My Father – Chicago-centered marxist headquarters); and 2) Arrogant, Grandiose Global Elites who phantasize (purposeful “ph”) total control over the entire world, no, actually cosmos. They never developed from their infantile dreams of Total Omnipotence – and were given the financial means (crony corporatism) to pursue them rather than the discipline they needed.

      The latter can imagine Global Warming (Ultimate Elite Control),
      -pay for government agencies to change all their research, data, and findings for fraud-science;
      -pay for politicians to advance their phantasies;
      -buy all media and reprogram for their purposes;
      -pay for educating children from pre-school through college, actually grad school now, to the moral imperative of their Global Warming policies;
      -pay to eliminate all scientists doing real scientific research and substitute their toadies;
      – pay for vast numbers of non-profit organizations that preach and pay for their social and political policies.

      All the above — and more — just to rid this Earth of the scum with whom they do not want to associate or to assist to a good life — that means us and all citizens of developed countries who might have a different idea and those in poorer countries who are just fodder at present.

    Sidney and Sharyl are 2 clever, rational and “tenacious” (SD) fighters that are fully engaged in the historic political battle for the truth. This video is one small sample of course. Now if only William Barr will become equally as “tenacious” in uncovering the truth and dispensing justice.

    I’m not including this video to irritate anyone but I believe it’s important for Trump supporters to know what Canadians are being fed about the Collusion Delusion by their biased national broadcaster. It’s more outrageously twisted and dishonest than usual. I wish they could be called out in some way. Michael Isikoff who said on a PBS election night panel “This is a crisis of credibility” when Donald Trump won is one of their main sources of “truth and evidence.” His leak connections also discredit him.

      I watched about 11 minutes of this and easily concluded it is a hack job of maybe the worst form of yellow journalism I have seen*. There is no effort needed to realize that the report takes previously disproven (by evidence) allegations, verifiably false allegations (by statements and recent evidence), and isolated facts lacking original context, and weaves an obvious spin to smear the President and his family.

      * I have the same smear tactics used on every major MSM network news reporting here in the US except for some reporting on FNC and FBN and totally excluding OANN entirely (IMHO, OANN is in a top-drawer league by themselves for minimally biased, honest journalism).

      On a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being unbiased truth, this CBN report gets a 1 only because thats the lowest possible rating I could give it. Pure trash.

        Trump drinks at the wrong Barr! AG nominee admirer of Robert Mueller
        By Larry Klayman
        January 15, 2019

        The bottom line is this! Little will apparently change at DOJ with an establishment former AG like Bill Barr at the helm. He is part of the cozy Washington D.C. legal club which circles the wagons to protect its privileged few. Note that when even strong legal pundits like Joseph DiGenova refer to such villains as Robert Mueller, they call him “Bob.” Well, fellow patriots, let’s not now be fooled about the true intentions of “Bill.”

        http://www.renewamerica.com/columns/klayman/190115

        My bottom line is that Barr received very little obstruction from the Democrats during the confirmation process. Did you see, a line of women claiming they were sexually assaulted by him. Did you see, protests for his confirmation on the road in front of congress. Did you see, one member, after another, of congress protesting his confirmation, etc.

        I am not optimistic about AG Barr!

        The IG reports thus far have been a massive disappointment, because they seem to reflect what is in the best interest of the FBI and DOJ. No surprise since the IG is clearly a team player controlled and operated by this same leadership.

    When I listen to Sidney Powell and Sheryl Attkisson, then read Judge Collyer’s FISA Court Order I hear the ring of truth.

    Then when I know that the FIB did NSA searches on 198 Americans in 2013 increasing the searches to 5,288 innocent Americans in the 2016 election year, there is no doubt NSA data is being illegally used by private friends of James Comey.

    Then knowing these facts, I listen to FIB Directors James Comey and Christopher Wray say no one in the FIB is doing anything wrong with NSA data and FISA warrants. I can easily conclude the foxes are no longer guarding the hen house; they are inside the hen house.

    I’ve othen wondered why they kept this fraud going and didn’t try to cut and run when they saw their boat (the story/dossier) was taking on water. And why are all the key players the same in all these scandals as it seems like one big “family”?

    Why, why keep it going to a point of obsession and risk exposing, sacrificing yourself and your peers, as it seems to be coming out now??

    I think the answer is what Sidney is talking about.

    IMO they allowed contractors to spy unabated for so long, building out a “leverageable database” coupled with ongoing unmasking and FISA fraud. Also ask yourself, what role could this acquired information have played in the U1 scandal?

    This unfiltered and unabated information was gold, meaning power, influence and control IMO.

    IMO they were waist deep in crossing the line well BEFORE PT came on the scene. They had much to hide IMO, including U1.

    Remember they allowed themselves to become corrupted by the real ring leaders and now were so compromised, that their only path was to keep going, meaning more lies, more smoke and mirrors to cover their tracks and ensure no one such as PT got elected and if he did, would never go back and uncover the real abuse which would lead to possibly bringing down the top dogs.

    Again why are all the key players involved in the various scandals all the same?

    Yes, they hate PT but their corruption before he came into power was 1000x worse than Watergate and could expose the folks at the top if enough digging took place after they lost power in Nov 2016. Thus the “Get/Stop Trump” Plan was put in place even if it meant sacrificing middle level players.

    If Americans can demand to see who these 3 contractors were that Sidney speaks about then IMO this opens the door to questions such as….

    1) Who allowed/ authorized these folks unabated access?

    2) How many years did they have access?

    3) Who and how many people were queried from the NSA database?

    4) What specific data points did they query on these people?

    5) Then Barr should interview some of the key queried people to see if any personal data was ever used on them as “leverage”

    6) And finally this could lead to a deep dive over numerous years of internal e-mail and texts by key players involved.

    IMO their obsession with “Getting PT” is so frenzy, so deep, so coordinated, touching so many players and with Sidney’s tidbits of earlier spying abuse surfacing, Barr would be smart conducting a simultaneous, two path investigation strategy.

    Thanks to Sidney for pushing this and her non stop work to expose the real and first Spygate IMO.

While POGO’s Hempowicz is correct that both political parties, and Congress specifically, are guilty of oversight neglect, she only clouds the collection-abuse issue with “both political parties are to blame” chaff and flares.

      The article leaves unanswered – what are the specific sources for the raw information in each of the FIVE reports given to the FBI, three of the five being considered “dossiers.”

      According to Solomon –

      Ohr’s revelation about his wife adds yet another example of people connected to the Clinton machine flooding the FBI with anti-Trump Russia research during the 2016 election.

      Steele’s dossier was the opening salvo. A document sent to the State Department by Clinton proteges Cody Shearer and Sidney Blumenthal was another. A thumb drive given by Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussman to FBI general counsel James Baker was a third. Simpson’s thumb drive given to Bruce Ohr was a fourth. And Nellie Ohr’s thumb drive would be a fifth. At least three of those work products — those from Steele, Shearer/Blumenthal and Nellie Ohr — resemble what many people might consider a dossier.

      There is nothing in this report or any others that I have seen that identifies unique information in any of these reports / dossiers that has ever been corroborated independently.

      If only the Steele Dossier was used in the 2016 Carter Page FISA, is that due simply to chronological timing of receipt of the other four “reports” or is it because none of the other reports contained additional unique and incriminating material?

      Curious minds (well, me at least) want to know.

    Sooner or later we have to admit this conspiracy goes way deeper than one would think. It becomes more obvious every day the ones who have been exposed so far, Comey, McCabe, et al. were only the front men/operatives. The second layer would be the coordinators, both within the O’s White House, DOJ/DOS and in Congress. And there were/are the decision-makers, the planners. It also seems there are a lot more “watchers/observers” well informed of, and most likely acquiesced to, what has been going on, such as the gang of 8 and the parties’ “elders”. There are so many who are involved in this that silence becomes the norm, as it is now.

    Whoever steps in now might not be connected to the front men operatives or the coordinators or planners, but is certainly consented to by the “observers” and the “elders”, i.e., those with power, and he therefore must have their interest in mind, whatever interest that could be.

    POTUS is fighting this alone, he only has his voters – us. One good sign is that he is getting stronger as those GOPers start to realize it may also be in their interest to at least stop the Mueller probe.

    If you prosecute anybody over Muh Russia, it eventually leads to Obama. The Swamp and Deep State don’t want that.

    They took down Wolfe, but he was easy meat and was clearly operating outside the DoJ and WH cabals. He got a slap on the wrist, as warning to the rest of the Swamp.

    You almost can’t touch anybody associated with FISA and the Steele Dossier, without engaging the fully fury of the Swamp and Deep State. Strzok, Comey, Page, most all of ’em. They may skate, because they’ll squeal on the WH, Brennan and Lynch if they’re prosecuted.

    It appears that the Swamp is throwing McCabe overboard, and they’ll nail him on the same charges they got Wolfe, minor leaking and lying. This is why he popped up now. He knows he’s about to take the fall, and unless he had dealings with Lynch and the WH implicating them, he can’t threaten to squeal, like Comey would. He’ll have to take his medicine and keep his mouth shut over that, like Wolfe.

    The only way you can scoop up the whole rotten crew is to start at FISA and work upstream and downstream from there, and prosecute everybody including Obama and Hillary if necessary. I don’t see Deep State Barr and his new assistant doing that. They’re both chosen by McConnell afterall, and Barr is his longtime henchman.

    Is there some process in the FBI that the small group does NOT control that would threaten them had Nellie Ohr simply written or called or met face-to-face with McCabe and Strozk?

    Using Bruce Ohr calls attention to the nefarious nature of what they were doing. Was this simply time sensitive and they were in such a hurry they couldn’t mail it?

    Just curious as to why they felt like they had to use him.

      They were using info provided by his wife. Who would have been more trustworthy, less likely to leak?

      Simple – the Ohrs knew that any electronic means of transmitting the Nellie/Fusion report to the FBI would be picked up by NSA and thus traceable and verifiable.

      They did not want that for obvious reasons. Thus, they used “sneaker net”.

    America is teetering on the edge.
    The behavior described above is the behavior of the KGB/FSB.
    It is the behavior of the communist chinese secret police.
    It was the behavior of Lenin and Stalin.
    It was the behavior of Hitler’s SS.
    It is the behavior of totalitarian governments.
    The plain conclusion is: our government is out of control.
    Everybody is at risk.
    Nobody is immune.
    The problems must be fixed,
    the guilty must be prosecuted and punished,
    or America will perish.

    My personal favorite, from Congress. — Sarcasm!

    We will investigate and make a referral, if needed. Of course the referral, if made, goes to the FBI/DOJ. This is generally, a referral made to investigate themselves. Something akin to asking a proctologist to do a self examination. Easier said, than done. Luckily the FBI/DOJ have no shortage of the necessary backsides.

    It seems to always end the same way. Nothing to see here.

    Confirmed (imo). Cohen was the insider spy in the Trump campaign that George Papadopoulos referenced.

    Which of the Dossiers were used to construct the FISA warrant application or applications? Did the FISC judges receive more than one version?

    Ohr’s revelation about his wife adds yet another example of people connected to the Clinton machine flooding the FBI with anti-Trump Russia research during the 2016 election.

    Steele’s dossier was the opening salvo. A document sent to the State Department by Clinton proteges Cody Shearer and Sidney Blumenthal was another. A thumb drive given by Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussman to FBI general counsel James Baker was a third. Simpson’s thumb drive given to Bruce Ohr was a fourth. And Nellie Ohr’s thumb drive would be a fifth. At least three of those work products — those from Steele, Shearer/Blumenthal and Nellie Ohr — resemble what many people might consider a dossier.

  48. Anyone else just amazed at the FBI blindly accepting thumb drives? No business that I know has allowed those to be used for at least 3-4 years if not longer. Too dangerous.

    Just another nail in the coffin–total common sense which the Dem bureaucratic class never has (or will have).
