Drip, Drip – Catherine Herridge Drops Two More Pages of Andrew McCabe and Lisa Page Text Messages…

Not A Tick-Tock

Last week Fox News journalist Catherine Herridge announced she had received 40 pages of text messages between former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe and his FBI Lawyer Lisa Page. [See Here]  These text communications have not been seen by congress, and were not released during prior requests for documents.  Herridge, released and wrote about two of the pages. [See Here]

Today, Herridge releases two more pages….  She’s awesome, and likely slow in the overall release to absorb the import; and for good reason.  Herridge’s release today highlights an important meeting as discussed within the texts:

In a Dec. 12, 2016, text reviewed by Fox News, Page wrote to McCabe: “Btw, [Director of National Intelligence James] Clapper told Pete that he was meeting with [CIA Director John] Brennan and Cohen for dinner tonight. Just FYSA [for your situational awareness].”

Herridge’s angle is questioning why Peter “Pete” Strzok would be told about a meeting between CIA Director John Brennan, ODNI James Clapper and Deputy CIA Director David Cohen.  Current officials cannot explain the context of this December 12th, 2016 meeting and why “Pete” would know about it.

However, there’s an aspect to the background of this time-frame that Catherine Herridge is overlooking…. bear with me.

This meeting takes place on December 12th, 2016.  This is in the epicenter of the time when the Obama intelligence officials, specifically Clapper and Brennan – along with DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson, were hastily putting together something called the JAR “Joint Analysis Report”, on Russian activity in the 2016 election.

The Joint Analysis Report: aka “GRIZZLY STEPPE – Russian Malicious Cyber Activity”  was released on December 29th, 2016, to coincide with President Obama kicking out Russian diplomats as punishment for the content therein which outlined malicious Russian activity in the 2016 election.

[Sidenote: CTH has had to fight to keep our copy of that report accessible – long story]

We’ve been talking about the JAR from the day it was initially released.  This specific report is total garbage. [Read it Here]  The “Russian Malicious Cyber Activity – Joint Analysis Report” is pure nonsense. This is the report that generated the “17 intelligence agencies” narrative and talking points.  The JAR outlines nothing more than vague and disingenuous typical hacking activity that is no more substantive than any other hacking report on any other foreign actor.  But the “17 Intel Agencies” narrative stuck like glue.

What the report does well is using technical terminology to describe common cyber activity. Example: “ATPT29” sounds looming, but really is Olaf, the imaginary round faced chubby guy probably working from his kitchen table; and “ATPT28” is his unemployed socially isolated buddy living in Mom’s basement down the street. But when put into technical terms they sound more alarming…. more colluding or something.

All that JAR nonsense is saying is a general explanation for how hacking, any hacking, is generally carried out. This entire report is nothing more than a generalized, albeit techno-worded, explanation for how Nigerians, Indians, or in this case Russians, attempt to gain your email passwords etc., nothing more.

However, even more alarming was how far the various radical political ideologues, and the media, were willing to go to create a straw-man crisis for political benefit. Secondly, how terribly diminished the integrity of the executive office of the U.S. presidency became amid this level of ridiculous manufactured propaganda.

There’s no doubt the intended outcome was to create confusion and begin selling a narrative to undermine the incoming President-elect Trump administration. No-one expected him to win; Trump’s victory sent a shock-wave through the DC system the professional political class were reacting to it.  The emotional crisis inside DC made manipulating them, and much of the the electorate, that much easier.

Understanding the JAR was used to validate the Russian sanctions and expulsion of the 35 Russian diplomats; and understanding that some coordination and planning was needed for the report therein; and understanding that Brennan and Clapper would need someone to author the material; that’s where Peter “Pete” Strzok comes in.

Remember, CIA Director John Brennan enlisted FBI Agent Peter Strzok to write much of the follow-up within the ICA report, another sketchy construct.  Paul Sperry wrote a great article about it (emphasis mine):

[…] In another departure from custom, the report is missing any dissenting views or an annex with evaluations of the conclusions from outside reviewers. “Traditionally, controversial intelligence community assessments like this include dissenting views and the views of an outside review group,” said Fred Fleitz, who worked as a CIA analyst for 19 years and helped draft national intelligence estimates at Langley. “It also should have been thoroughly vetted with all relevant IC agencies,” he added. “Why were DHS and DIA excluded?”

Fleitz suggests that the Obama administration limited the number of players involved in the analysis to skew the results. He believes the process was “manipulated” to reach a “predetermined political conclusion” that the incoming Republican president was compromised by the Russians.

“I’ve never viewed the ICA as credible,” the CIA veteran added.

A source close to the House investigation said Brennan himself selected the CIA and FBI analysts who worked on the ICA, and that they included former FBI counterespionage chief Peter Strzok.

Strzok was the intermediary between Brennan and [former FBI Director James] Comey, and he was one of the authors of the ICA,” according to the source.  (read more)

Now does the picture from within Catherine Herridge’s story make more sense?

Peter “Pete” Strzok knew about the December 12th meeting between Brennan, Clapper and Cohen, because Clapper told Strzok of the meeting.  Likely this discussion surrounded the need for Pete’s help in constructing the JAR; which would be the underlying evidence President Obama would use to expel the Russians….  Which is to say, give increased validity to the manufactured premise there was Russian interference.  There wasn’t.

Fucking Brennan!

The scale of the scam they pulled off is remarkable.  Of course none of it would have been possible without a compliant media.  If anyone in the media had been asking direct questions in December of 2016 this entire house-of-cards would have collapsed.

The outgoing administration needed to create something, some narrative, to block Trump from upending their entire political system and protect their own asses from all of the spying and surveillance operations they deployed throughout 2015 and 2016.

They sold this ridiculous Russian Narrative to a gullible U.S. left-wing electorate, because the Obama administration -writ large- knew media would help them, and millions of already shocked people would buy into these fabrications.

Consider the December 2016 example from a Yahoo News article:

[…] The US intelligence community has concluded that a hack-and-release of Democratic Party and Clinton staff emails was designed to put Trump — a political neophyte who has praised Putin — into the Oval Office. (link)

There was, and still is, absolutely no evidence the DNC was “hacked” (WikiLeaks claims the information was an inside job of “leaking”), and even John Podesta admitted himself he was a victim of an ordinary “phishing” password change scam.

The Russian Interference narrative was constructed ex post-facto to cover for a political surveillance operation that was targeting candidate Donald Trump during the 2016 presidential election. The Carter Page FISA warrant (an insurance policy) was needed as cover for the investigative data trail and time spent by FBI officials enlisted in the surveillance operation.

    The FBI notified the DNC in September of 2015, that they were being hacked. The NSA had detected the hack and attributed it to Russians. Unless Admiral Rodgers and the NSA were early on engaging in the plot to frame Russians and Trump, the Russians very likely did hack the DNC. When Adm. Rodgers served under Pres. Trump, Trump came to accept that the Russians did hack the DNC. Trump moved on from the fat boy in the basement theory.

    The claim that ‘the Russians’ hacked the DNC computers was started by the anti-Russian Ukrainian firm CrowdStrike, and that was seized on by Brennan and the other conspirators to create the myth of Russian Collusion. There were not ’17 intelligence agencies’ agreeing on Russia, as Hillary Clinton claimed in the last debate, just three (as Fred Fleitz wrote in The Federalist, here: https://thefederalist.com/2017/04/06/obamas-white-house-politicizing-intelligence-influence-2016-elections/ ).

        Crowdstrike was under contract by the FBI starting in July 2015 and ending July 2016. Crowdstrike did not do anything they were not ordered to do by someone involved in the scheme. They are involved in the deception, but not the authors of it. Several questions begging for answers are still left dangling:

        1. Why did Crowdstrike and DNC executives tell Washington Post (WAPO) reporter Ellen Nakashima that the DNC’s emails were only “read” and “monitored” by Russians and not stolen. Not accusing the Russians of stealing the emails, so the theft could be tied to the transfer of copies of emails to Wikileaks, has to be addressed. After Guccifer 2.0 shows up, claiming to have passed the emails to Wikileaks, Crowdstrike produces a report that claims the Russians stole the emails and everything else not nailed down. The WAPO description of the “hack” is that of a nothing hack. The New York Times didn’t repeat the story until two days later. The Crowdstrike report made the hack look like an act of war. Which was it?

        2. Why did the FBI, who knew about the Russian hack sometime on, or before, September 2015, not intervene to stop it in 2015? The FBI allegedly knew about this hack from the NSA and told the DNC IT people about it. IT consultant, hired by DNC, Yared Tamene, saw no systems-related evidence that anyone hacked DNC, yet, according to the Mueller indictment of the 12 Russian names, Michael Sussmann of Perkins Coie knew the network logs housed that evidence of a Russian hack.

        3. On May 6, 2016, Crowdstrike knew that Russians had hacked the DNC. For the next 35 days, they did nothing to stop anything the hackers did, but merely observed their activities, which resulted in the loss of the emails on May 23rd and May 25th for the first tranches of emails that were later transferred to Wikileaks. According to the Mueller indictment, the Russians knew, sometime before May 31, 2016 that CROWDSTRIKE WAS WATCHING THEM. That is Crowdstrike–by NAME–was known by the Russians to be watching them operate inside the DNC network, yet the Russians did not leave and continued to neglect erasing the tracks they left in system logs until sometime in June.

        4. Crowdstrike could have ended the attacks in May 2016. In fact, the weekend after May 6, 2016 since they allegedly knew the hackers were Russians by that date. They waited until the weekend of June 11, 2016 to disconnect the network from the Internet and install new machines and reimage all laptops under the guise of “upgrading” the system. Why wait until June 11 to do what should have been done in May?

        There’s more, but this is a start.

          Farrier105, you clearly know much more than I. But when I wrote “The Easter Bunny Cover-up,” sources were saying that CrowdStrike was owned by an anti-Russian Ukrainian named Dmitri Alperovitch. And that it was by no means clear that Russians were involved at all. As I said,

          What was the evidence that it was the Russians who got into the DNC server? CrowdStrike claimed the hacking was accomplished by malware created by ‘Russian front’ operatives using the names ‘Cozy Bear’ and ‘Fancy Bear’, who also used similar malware to disable Ukrainian weaponry in Russian-Ukrainian encounters. But recently this claim has been debunked, and it has become apparent that Cozy Bear and Fancy Bear used cyber-hacking techniques that are widespread in the state-sponsored and wildcat hacker underground. . .

          I cited this Daily Mail article: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4376628/New-questions-claim-Russia-hacked-election.html

          My guess is that the Kremlin was not involved at all, and their role in the DNC ‘hacks’ was a fabrication by CrowdStrike, working with Mrs Clinton’s campaign, the Obama White House, and John Brennan’s CIA. That led to the Crossfire Hurricane CIA/FBI attempt to frame Donald Trump, under the guise of an ‘investigation’. /LEJ

            The terms “Cozy Bear” and “Fancy Bear” were used in place of Advanced Persistent Threat 28 (APT 28) and APT 29, which were the hacking tools allegedly used by the “Russians” to get into the DNC network and stay there. APT 28 is pretty old, and used by many hackers.

            Dmitri Alperovitch is Russian. Crowdstrike was originally started by a group of former McAfee employees. Alperovitch is the Director of Technology while Shawn Henry is Director of Response, which put him in charge of the DNC Incident Response engagement. There might be people of Ukrainian descent working in Crowdstrike, but it is a US operation.

            “Fancy Bear” was allegedly inside the DNC network, not just the Microsoft Exchange server for email, for about one year. “Cozy Bear” was inside the DNC network for less than one quarter of a year.

            The emails were not stolen by Russians and given to Wikileaks. Since Crowdstrike claims nearly everything on the network was compromised, including telephone conversations (Voice Over IP), there were more interesting bits of data in there than the DNC emails to an intelligence agency. The idea that parking 44,054 emails in Wikileaks, most of which are worthless, was how to defeat Hillary Clinton is just absurd.

              Alperovitch may be Russian, but is according to this report associated with anti-Russian Ukrainians:

              . . . The firm’s [CrowdStrike’s] CTO and co-founder, Dmitri Alperovitch, is a senior fellow at the Atlantic Council, a think tank with openly anti-Russian sentiments that is funded by Ukrainian billionaire Victor Pinchuk, who also happened to donate at least $10 million to the Clinton Foundation.

              In 2013, the Atlantic Council awarded Hillary Clinton it’s Distinguished International Leadership Award. In 2014, the Atlantic Council hosted one of several events with former Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk, who took over after pro-Russian President Viktor Yanukovych was ousted in early 2014, who now lives in exile in Russia.

              All of which makes it likely that the DNC, Hillary Clinton, and Alperovitch were directly involved in creating the “Russians hacked the DNC and stole the emails” story. /LEJ

                But Crowdstrike is not Ukrainian, but American. Crowdstrike is central to the story that the Russians stole the emails, which means their hiring by the DNC was integral to the emails getting to Wikileaks, but Crowdstrike did not turn the emails over to Wikileaks since they did not tell WAPO that the Russians stole the emails, but only “read” and “monitored” them. If Alperovitch and Henry, present at the meeting with WAPO’s Ellen Nakashima, had known the emails had already gone to Wikileaks in May, contrary to the Mueller indictment’s date of July 18, 2016, then Alperovitch and Henry would have TOLD NAKASHIMA THE RUSSIANS STOLE THE EMAILS.

                Crowdstrike admitted to letting the “Russian hackers” steal documents from the DNC and doing nothing to stop them under the guise of not letting the “Russians” know Crowdstrike knew about them. This means Crowdstrike LET THE “RUSSIANS” STEAL THE EMAILS. Why this flies over everyone’s head is beyond my comprehension.

                Crowdstrike let THE DEEP STATE STEAL THE EMAILS, who then gave the emails to Wikileaks to incriminate Assange as a “Russian agent,” opening him up for eventual extradition to the United States for prosecution, and yet more “evidence” of Trump-Russia “Collusion.” The Deep State actors just didn’t bother to tell the Crowdstrike dummies what they planned to do with the emails.

          @EricStoner: ^^^^^^^This!

          Enter WikiLeaks and Assange who published Vault 7 and Vault 8 exposing the treachery of Brennan et al framing Russia to be the Hackers and worse.

          Remember the end goal of the Obama bunch: WWIII.

          Involved in the framing of Russia is Google’s Eric Schmidt who donated 100 million dollars during the 2016 election assisting a win for Hillary come hell and high water. Next is CrowdStrike Alperovich also working with Google, Brennan and the DNC. What they did is using the theft of Russian tools swiped via various times that was then used by the CIA/Brennan to place these tools as though they were Russian in nature.
          They were not and at no time did Russia hack anything. Russia/Putin became the victim after placing malware via disguised fingerprints left behind and attributed to Russia.

          Remember the superb anti-virus, anti-malware Russian Kaspersky company and their software? Again they destroyed this company labeling them a agent for Russia selling their services on behalf of Russia to gain access to Kaspersky’s customers computers.
          In reality once again they swiped and obtained Kaspersky’s successful tools to keep its customers computer free of any type of viruses/malware and more. The gang of Brennan, Alperovich and Schmidt used their products framing Russia as the hackers.

          It was a dirty and corrupt operation as WikiLeaks laid it out in their expose of Vault 7 and 8. They also exposed them being able to remotely steer your car into trees etc like they did Michael Hastings who worked on exposing the mole John Brennan. It cost him his life.

          The actions by Hussein, Brennan and HRC et al were so severe that Putin thought long about a counter attack. The election of Donald Trump was the only reason that Putin remained calm. You must never forget that that gang also attempted to assassinate him as he flew over Ukraine destined for Russia. One of the many MANPADS HRC/Hussein sold to enemies using the state department hit the wrong plane and the rest is history. It was the downing of MH17 gone wrong mistaken it for Putin’s plan since they had similar color designs.

          The good in all of this is that president Trump, his team and the DIA are well aware of the truth and what took place. Not only do they have ALL the servers (Awan’s included) but also ALL of WikiLeaks files that were in the soccer ball presented to the president during his Helsinki meeting. During that time Assange went dark as his life was in danger and deep state actors took over his WikiLeaks account.

    Once you see that, you have to ask what would motivate these agencies to issue such subterfuge. The only logical answer is to cover for all of their own skullduggery. I’ve been saying that for over two years, too.

    Finally, the scary part is this: These shameful, pathetic former public officials ruined many people’s lives to cover their arses, but more importantly they jeopardized everyone by nudging Russia and the USA closer to war, and they kept fanning those flames (and still keep fanning those flames).

    I don’t like the 2 pages at a time. Dump it all. Really dissatisfied by conservative media worrying more about their air time than about conveying info. And I don’t like the 64D chess arguments that some sort of drip is good strategy. Just disclose the info. Then let people make of it what they will.

      Why don’t you like the drip strategy? It’s been proven to work devastatingly well in many situations.
      But you already knew that, right?

        Sean Hannity does the “dump it all” routine and that has made me appreciate the “drip strategy.” The info we’re talking about is HUGE, too bigga eat for one big dump. Each drip needs time for research and speculation and connecting of dots. I think about that as regards the classified document dump we want; it’s too bigga eat to grasp the significance, especially while the Left is still busily engaged in rabid denial of Mueller’s report.

          My appreciation for the “drip strategy” came from Andrew Breitbart. What he did to ACORN and Anthony Weiner was brilliant. Release a bit – watch reaction – release a bit more – watch reaction. Rinse repeat. They almost always hang themselves.

    Strzok was one of the “two dozen or so” analysts “hand picked” by Brennan? So many connections.

    The moron called Brennan was George Tenet’s waterboy, and Tenet merely drug him up through the ranks in the system. Tenet’s job report can be partially described this way by Wiki:

    “…A 2005 Inspector General’s report found that Tenet bears “ultimate responsibility” for the United States intelligence community’s failure to develop a plan to control al Qaeda in the lead-up to 9/11.”

    Explain what is known as deep state?

    I’m not sure why we should be so tightly focused on Russian hackers, when the Awan family and Weiner had access to most information of the DNC and Hildabeast.

    Ive gone back to this article in WaPo several times since it was published in June 2017, because I think it reveals what was actually happening when you read it knowing the truth.

    Here it mentions Brennan’s small group, and I was reminded of this when reading that text message from Page to McCabe about Clapper meeting with Brennan and Cohen.

    ——“composed of officers from CIA, NSA, and FBI”= Brennan/Cohen, Clapper and Strzok
    ——“worked exclusively for two customers, first was Obama and senior officials”= Val Jarett?

    “Brennan first alerts the White House to the Putin intelligence and later briefs Obama in the Oval Office. convened a secret task force at CIA headquarters composed of several dozen analysts and officers from the CIA, the NSA and the FBI.

    The unit functioned as a sealed compartment, its work hidden from the rest of the intelligence community. Those brought in signed new non-disclosure agreements to be granted access to intelligence from all three participating agencies.

    They worked exclusively for two groups of “customers,” officials said. The first was Obama and fewer than 14 senior officials in government. The second was a team of operations specialists at the CIA, NSA and FBI who took direction from the task force on where to aim their subsequent efforts to collect more intelligence on Russia.

    Don’t make things worse
    The secrecy extended into the White House.

    Rice
    Susan Rice
    National security adviser. Rice orders the National Security Council to finalize a list of options to use against Moscow. , Haines
    Avril Haines
    Deputy national security adviser and former deputy director of the CIA under Brennan. and White House homeland-security adviser Lisa Monaco convened meetings in the Situation Room to weigh the mounting evidence of Russian interference and generate options for how to respond. At first, only four senior security officials were allowed to attend: Brennan
    John Brennan
    CIA director. Brennan first alerts the White House to the Putin intelligence and later briefs Obama in the Oval Office. , Clapper
    James R. Clapper
    Director of national intelligence and one of four senior administration officials to participate in meetings in of the Situation Room on how to retaliate against Russia. Clapper would eventually release the Obama administration’s first statement concluding Russia interfered in the election. , Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch and FBI Director James B. Comey. Aides ordinarily allowed entry as “plus-ones” were barred.”

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    This part almost seems like more CYA. They were not meeting about how to respond to Russia because of their election interference. They were SCRAMBLING and plotting to frame the incoming president.

    ——————————

    “The report that Obama had commissioned was released a week later, on Jan. 6. It was BASED LARGELY ON THE WORK DONE BY THE TASK FORCE Brennan had established and made public what the CIA had concluded in August, that “Putin and the Russian government aspired to help President-elect Trump’s election chances when possible by discrediting Secretary Clinton.”

      Dawg, do you think the President has that info, because I’ve heard several versions of how the SC got started, and you just outlined the TRUE answer that pins it on Brennan with no doubt about it. He once bragged about convening that small group of people “to solve the problem of Russia meddling”, but it is my recollection that he did not mention it was “meddling in the election”. Rather, Russians were “hacking”the DNC server.”

    They thought Trump would never win. Everything after November 8 and before the Mueller SC was done to coverup their illegal data gathering. That much is certain. Nunes and Admiral Rogers grenaded the whole thing.

    It is that simple. Another SC is just another impenetrable blanket over truth and transparency. Ms. Lindsey is in major CYA mode now. The rinos were all in with the coverup from the get go.

      I think Graham didn’t know just how great a President Trump would be, but he knows now, and I think he is genuinely appalled by what Obama’s intelligence agencies and DOJ did to try to take Trump out.

      It’s not all black and white. Just because someone isn’t a fully-on-board dedicated loyal Trump supporter doesn’t mean that they are the complete opposite. Graham is somewhere in the middle, leaning more toward Trump now than before. Take what you can get from him. He’s not all bad and he can definitely do some good now that he’s in his new position of power.

        Graham is the front man for the anti-Trump movement. He’s taken on this “heroic” position of starting hearings and he will drag them out so nothing gets done. Mark my words on this. This is payback for his swabbie McCain.
        He was up to his eyeballs in the arms deals to the Libyan and Syrian jihadis that McCain was running through his foundation/institute with the attachment of the CGI and AGT. They were/are both scared they would be caught with Trump.
        McCain gone….Graham has to pick up the torch to protect himself.

    “The guilty dog barks the loudest.” This coup attempt encompassed Barry, his White House, the Gang of 8, and subsequently through whispers the entire uni-party. They were all in on the scam. The Plutocracy then issued orders that the MSM aka Swamp Stenographers dutifully echo the swamp concerns and voila “Russia Collusion” was hatched. The crime was then perpetrated on the USA as a whole. The NWO moved into full protect mode.

    The size and scope of this conspiracy is breathtaking but not surprising. The “BIG” question, will there be justice!!? We know that AG Barr is a swamp creature whose wealth and notoriety derive from the King and Crowned Prince of the NWO Bush 1 & 2. We’ll see, and we’ll take note.

    God Bless President Donald J Trump, his family, and the USA.

    I hope Herridge isn’t doing the slow release just to keep us hanging on. We’ve been through enough of that before. The Dems have too with the 3 years of “the walls are closing in on Trump”. If she has some damning info then she should just be straightforward and publish it, not simply imply something by the slow drip and then end up with nothing. I’m tried of this media game. Show us what you’ve got. I’m a busy person. 🙂

    As per The Constitution of the United States of America, the penalty for sedition is death. Nowhere does it state that former presidents are exempt. Water torture has long been effective. Drip, drip the media to death over the next 19 months, control the narrative and always keep them guessing what the hell is going to hit them next.

    Excellent post Sundance. Wish I could provide a cogent reply to every comment. I suppose most who read here know of what “being Arkancided” means. Elephants’ memory here = Seth Rich. Its all over the place that he copied the DNC emails, the bit speed etc. It was NOT a hack. Was Seth Rich’s death a DNC- acide or one of Ohbummer’s? Oh no wait, it was the Russians! Wish someone could find the text messages re the murder of Seth Rich. What a horror story. Think that murder is why they will not let Julian Assange go. “Murder She Wrote,” “Columbo,” “Perry Mason”, and “Sherlock Holmes” were my parents favorite TV shows. These characters, while they were acting taught me to think. A Crime has to have a motive.a method, and an end goal. Why murder someone over the hacking of the DNC emails? I really hope that tin the “airing of all of the dirty laundry” that is starting to spew from every direction since Mueller’s report came out that someone, somewhere brings Seth Rich’s death back into the picture. Do not believe humans are expendable because they are uncovering crimes. There is a lot of explaining to do. Be good people.
    No doubts you will be.

    Not the best link I could find, but it will do I hope.

    ” Brennan himself selected the CIA and FBI analysts who worked on the ICA, and that they included former FBI counterespionage chief Peter Strzok. “Strzok was the intermediary between Brennan and [former FBI Director James] Comey, and he was one of the authors of the ICA,” according to the source.”

    Ooooohhh… I’ve always wondered about the Strzok/Page communications. They go beyond “love birds” and enter into purposeful communication. Initially I wondered if Strzok was a white hat recording misdeeds, to wondering if the texts were CYA to protect himself, to wondering if he was like Nellie Ohr, using a ham radio to relay information. That said, the quote above leads me to believe that he was using the texts to record events as an intermediary.

    I’m tired so I’m crazy talking and will disavow my rantings in the morning, but it’s like one of those dot pictures where suddenly you see the outline of the picture within. Oh my gosh! They ARE the Russian agents.The server was a dead drop. They sold them uranium. They sent the exposed Russian agents home. and on and on it goes.
