Fox News Publishes Set of Andrew McCabe Texts With Lisa Page – Notes Main Justice Concerns With FBI FISA Source/Motive…

Fox News has published a small set of text messages between FBI Deputy Andrew McCabe and his DOJ Attorney Lisa Page.  The set of messages released come from the device(s) of Lisa Page and outlines that she must have shared with investigators the totality of her texting and not just messages between herself and FBI Special Agent Peter Strzok.

The aspect covered within the release speaks to a concern from Main Justice toward the FBI application of the FISA warrant used against Carter Page.  Specifically, concerns held by Stuart Evans, then the DOJ’s National Security Division deputy assistant attorney general, about the bias held by the FBI source, Christopher Steele.

FOX NEWS – Just nine days before the FBI applied for a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant to surveil a top Trump campaign aide, bureau officials were battling with a senior Justice Department official who had “continued concerns” about the “possible bias” of a source pivotal to the application, according to internal text messages obtained by Fox News.

The 2016 messages, sent between former FBI lawyer Lisa Page and then-FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, also reveal that bureau brass circulated at least two anti-Trump blog articles, including a Lawfare blog post sent shortly after Election Day that called Trump possibly “among the major threats to the security of the country.”  (read more)

.

.

The issues presented within the Fox article are well known and have been widely discussed.  Essentially further evidence of some people within Main Justice having concerns with the FBI’s aggressive approach toward gaining a sketchy FISA warrant.

However, the revelation that Lisa Page shared text messages beyond those previously outlined in communication with Peter Strzok now leads to a possibility that investigators have much more internal communication that previously understood.  It would appear Ms. Page was considerably more forthcoming than other members of the small group.

Additionally, the leaking of this information to Fox News might indicate the investigation by Inspector General Michael Horowitz could be approaching completion.

    All seems to finally be coming to a head. My guess, Barr will inform the public that Trump has been cleared of any wrong doing and work toward rehabilitating DOJ. Will the culprits in the scheme be punished? My guess, a public shaming by Trump who will move on to re-election and making America great. In end, the media loses, democrats and never trumpers lose, and anything thrown at the President is just “ the boy that cried Wolf” effect. President Trump rolls toward re-election. Wish we would see the scoundrels prosecuted but not likely. Trump becomes stronger.

      If Barr doesn’t take some very visible steps to ensure the whole country that this misuse of power will never happen again, there will be no peace. Trump will probably be re-elected but we need the assurance that this fraud has been stopped. We just can’t keep accepting this two-tiered justice system.

        Completely agree. I think Barr being there means that a negotiated cleaning has been arranged. We won’t get the real ring-leaders at the very top, but a whole lot of the names on the picture above could go down. A realistic housecleaning has to take place, not just for Justice, but to right the balance a bit toward what this meant in the last elections as well.

      let me reiterate my prediction from 2 years ago:
      PDJT and the black hats and their enablers made a deal that they will clear him in exchange for him not prosecuting the black hats..
      Mueller and Barr are going through with their side of the bargain.
      PDJT has seemingly gone through with his side.

      And in a couple of months, when the dust settles, PDJT will gloriously and justifiably ‘renege’ on the deal, and sic the hounds on the black hats.

      The art of the deal includes the art of screwing over the bad guys who you made a deal with.

      • I cannot see PDJT making the deal you describe. Why would he agree to be magnanimous after everything he’s been through? That’s not a deal it’s a capitulation.

        Remember the speculation regarding AG Barr and the observations that we would know by the end of March? Well it’s almost the end of March and I think we know. IMO Barr told Mueller that the fishing expedition was done; that unless he had solid unrefutable evidence relating to the original purpose of the investigation that it was over. Otherwise Meuller would still be trying to blackmail Corsi into admitting guilt for something that probably wasn’t illegal.

        I hope that AG Barr goes after every single one of the traitorous sedition group. All of them. If no one is punished then this will happen again.

          I agree and that has been my primary concern. Will PT tweet about mueller for the next two yrs or will he keep a campaign pledge to “drain the swamp?”

          If he doesn’t go after the DS then ten minutes after he is out of office it will be biz as usual, but with a vengeance. You have to ask, what’s the point in a booming economy if you live with a two tier justice system?

          What has occurred here is a first. The peaceful transfer of power based on “free and fair” elections was tossed out the window. The DS puppet, obama, abused his federal authority to suppress his political opposition prior to the election. He continued to abuse it to try and have a duly elected president overthrown.

          My theory is the only reason they kept the puppet in the loop was so he could function as THEIR insurance policy. The hope being that PT would be persuaded not to go after a previous president, and a black one to boot.

          Half the country pretty much knows what went down. I don’t see how any leader can live with that.

    Further evidence that the FISA application was the majority of the so-called insurance policy. Without the retroactive legalization of the NSA database/FBI contractor spying which the FISA afforded, the FBI and basically the entire US intelligence community would’ve been caught in a scandal that would have resulted in the elimination of these tools and systematic deconstruction of intelligence contractors. Note that these contractors, such as Fusion GPS, are still operating today.

    They had to get the FISA application at any cost.

    All of this is the ongoing saga of the US domestic effort against Candidate Donald Trump. George Papadopoulos has a book coming out very soon and has been teasing that the international community is going to be exposed in an effort against Candidate Donald Trump.

    As to deals to limit the amount of disclosure, there’s much more at stake than Russia Gate and the Clinton Foundation, namely the routine functioning of the CIA, and the possibly routine or at least occasional use by FBI/DOJ of unauthorized access to NSA’s PRISM files for covert domestic surveillance (so much easier to check the database than to get a warrant). If FBI “cheated” on the 4th amendment in this respect, there are many convictions that could be overturned – any important evidence used that was fruit of that poisoned tree.

    Barr was GHW Bush’s AG, and that Bush was the former CIA Director, elder statesman of the Deep State, so Barr’s likely to be familiar with the process of protecting the CIA from exposure, while relying upon its unique capabilities, and containing any fallout from partial disclosures.

    Having watched President Trump through the entire Mueller investigation, especially his back-and-forths with the order to declassify, and firing of Rod Rosenstein, appearing to enjoy himself so much when he again changes direction unexpectedly, and I think on multiple occasions explaining that maybe the people don’t want or need to know everything, my anticipation is that Barr is drawing lines around non-disclosure areas. I’m hopeful they will satisfy President Trump, and his supporters, and nonetheless hold all the Russia-Gate scoundrels fully accountable, and bring the Clinton crime machine before justice, but without unexpectedly throwing open the entire record of covert services’ abuse of power. While I think we are not really free until that entire record is disclosed, I’ll nonetheless take what we can get.

    It’s been entirely too distracting to have such an enormous scandal withheld under wraps for so long.

    “McCabe would later initially deny providing such authorization to the Office of Inspector General. Page, when confronted with McCabe’s denials, produced texts refuting his statement. It was these texts that led to the inspector general uncovering the texts between Strzok and Page.”
