Update: Federal Judge Extends Review/Release Date for Comey Memos – “Clean and Unredacted” Now Due April 8th…

Grrr.  Delayed !  This one is under the radar, and yet may be a big reveal. Federal Judge delays compliance and production day to April 8th

Original story below.

There’s a somewhat sketchy background here that’s a little bit more granular and important than is being outlined. The redacted Comey memos were originally released to congress and the media. However, the unredacted memos -and more importantly the reason for the redactions– has never been held up to scrutiny.

As noted by Fox News: “Washington District Court Judge James E. Boasberg — an Obama appointee who was also tapped by Chief Justice John Roberts for a seat on the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court — issued an order Wednesday demanding the FBI hand over “clean and unredacted copies of the documents in dispute here,” apparently including the Comey memos and documents relating to the declarations.” (more)

However, as “Undercover Huber” has noted, Judge Boasberg has previously seen the Comey memos back in 2017 when the original arguments were made by Mueller’s team to keep them redacted from public review.

[…] the main issue now isn’t “handing over the Comey memos” (the Judge already saw them long ago), but whether to publicly release the FBI/DOJ justifications for NOT releasing the Comey memos to the public AND release the Comey memos completely unredacted.

The FBI/DOJ filed those justifications against releasing the Comey memos “in camera” & “ex parte” with the court on Oct 13 2017 & Jan 19 2018 They were written by the then FBI lead on Mueller’s team, David W. Archey (who replaced Peter Strzok, he led all FBI agents from Sep-17).

Those secret Archey declarations apparently still didn’t convince the judge that the Comey memos should be kept secret; so Mueller sent his top trial lawyer and supreme court rockstar Michael Dreeben to deliver a secret in-person “on the record proffer” about the investigation.

Whatever Dreeben said to the judge, it worked. Boasberg denied access to even a single word from the memos or even how many there were or how many pages they contained. The lawsuit against the FBI also seeks access to this secret “proffer”.

I think Dreeben confirmed to Judge Boasberg the focus of the investigation had moved to obstruction. That means this happened no later than Oct 2017. Mueller wanted to use the Comey memos as evidence against the President and his aides.

I completely agree.

The issue here, the reason the DOJ and FBI lawyers are holding vested interests in keeping the background issues from public sunlight, is specifically because the information being argued will show that Mueller’s team was exclusively focused on an “obstruction case” as far back as October 2017.

Our research indicates the Mueller probe actually stopped investigating Trump-Russia collusion back in early August 2017. The revised scope memo dated August 2nd, 2017, from Rod Rosenstein was specifically because there was no “there” there; and the Mueller team shifted to exclusively focus on “obstruction”.

When Peter Strzok and Lisa Page were debating the issues of joining the Mueller investigation after Comey was fired. Remember what Strzok said:

…”you and I both know the odds are nothing. If I thought it was likely, I’d be there no question. I hesitate in part because of my gut sense and concern there’s no big there there.”

(Text Message LinkSee Page #459, May 19th, 2017)

Keep in mind the origin of the May 2017 Mueller probe was a continuance of the FBI counterintelligence operation which started on July 31st, 2016 under the name Crossfire Hurricane. Again, the same corrupt investigative unit transferred from Crossfire Hurricane into the Mueller probe. It became obvious early on there was nothing there.

Because Crossfire Hurricane was started under fraudulent auspices (Brennan using his operations against Papadopoulos to frame the “EC”); and because the FBI investigation used another false intelligence targeting operation (the Steele Dossier) to gain the FISA warrant against Carter Page (October 2016); the construct of the entire investigative conspiracy became a risk that Mueller needed to protect from visibility. This is why Mueller asked Rosenstein for the August 2nd, 2017, revised scope memo.

The scope memo outlining targets, outlines the same people as targets that originally existed within Crossfire Hurricane and Mueller probe: Paul Manafort, George Papadopoulos, Carter Page, Michael Flynn and Michael Cohen.

Mueller targeted these individuals on other issues because he needed to shut them down, hide the fraudulent origin of the operation…. and thereby protect his obstruction investigation… For Mueller’s purposes:

  1. The Obstruction investigation, building toward the impeachment narrative, was always the original goal of Mueller. Therefore…
  2. The Obstruction investigation needed the precursor of the Trump-Russia investigation to remain standing; However,….
  3. The structure of the Trump-Russia investigation, the underlying evidence to support the effort, is predicated on the “Steele Dossier”. Therefore…
  4. Mueller needed to protect the Steele Dossier from scrutiny and deconstruction.

Remember, because there was no Trump-Russia collusion/conspiracy, it was always the “obstruction” investigation that could lead to the desired result by Mueller’s team of taking down President Trump through impeachment. The “obstruction case” was the entirety of the case they were trying to make from August 2017 through to March 2019.

It was always about obstruction. The Trump-Russia angle was, and is, nonsense and they knew early on too much investigative effort into that aspect would only lead to more evidence of nothing. Mueller’s team retained the cloud of Russian collusion/conspiracy only to keep maximum political damage upon Trump while the obstruction case was the real case they thought they could build.

This is why Mueller’s team punted on the obstruction decision to AG William Barr. It was their last desperate effort, amid a failure to construct a solid legal case, to politicize the possibility and innuendo, and force Barr to say “no obstruction.”

The problem for Mueller’s team now, with the unredacted Comey memos and more specifically with a possible release of the proffer (the conversation with the judge), is that sunlight will expose the actual timeline and effort as described above.

Mueller requested the second Scope Memo (August 2nd, 2017) so he could target Trump’s team for non Russia related matters and protect his goal which was to continue investigating obstruction. Mueller’s team needed to target the same people mentioned within the Steele Dossier to protect the dossier from scrutiny.

If Trump’s people (Flynn, Cohen, Manafort, Page and Papadopoulos) were allowed to prove the issues about them in the dossier were false, this would have undermined Mueller and the origin of his appointment. Undermining the dossier would have led to a collapse of the Trump-Russia narrative. Therefore Mueller needed to shut down Flynn, Manafort, Cohen and Papadopoulos… so he charged them, silenced them, through unrelated crimes.

If the full unredacted Comey memos are now released; and if the background proffer arguing why the Comey memos should be hidden is now released; it will show that Mueller was focused exclusively on an obstruction case since August of 2017.

People will ask why Mueller never said “no Russia collusion – no Russia conspiracy” eighteen months ago.

This is why the DOJ and FBI have been fighting on this issue in court.

♦ Also, don’t forget the guy who Comey leaked his memos to, Daniel Richman, was later discovered to be an ‘off-the-books’ special access employee of the FBI; hired by Comey, and granted special access to FBI databases.

Fox News Catherine Herridge detailed how Daniel Richman held special access privileges to the FBI, as an outcome of former FBI Director James Comey authorizing his friend as a “Special Government Employee” or SGE.

(VIA FOX) […] The professor, Daniel Richman, confirmed the special status in response to an inquiry from Fox News, while referring other questions, including on the scope of his work, to the FBI.

“I did indeed have SGE status with the Bureau (for no pay),” Richman wrote in an email.

Richman emerged last year as the former FBI director’s contact for leaking memos documenting his private discussions with President Trump – memos that are now the subject of an inspector general review over the presence of classified material. Sources familiar with Richman’s status at the FBI told Fox News that he was assigned to “special projects” by Comey, and had a security clearance as well as badge access to the building. Richman’s status was the subject of a Memorandum of Understanding.  (read more)

Let’s look at something here. From the article the benefits included: “Sources familiar with Richman’s status at the FBI told Fox News that he was assigned to “special projects” by Comey, and had a security clearance as well as badge access to the building. Richman’s status was the subject of a Memorandum of Understanding.”

A few paragraphs later, this: “Richman’s portfolio included the use of encrypted communications by terror suspects.”

Oh my. Well, well, well… You see what’s being described here. There’s only one way to gain access to “encrypted communications” and that means having access to the FBI and NSA database.

Accepting he obviously had such access…. what would be the probability that Daniel Richman was one of these?

Curiouser and curiouser…

      SD, might I say things are not getting curiouser and curiouser but clearer and showing more of the nasty approaches to find obstruction, frankly illegally going after the others who obviously were forced to seem to say something about Trump before and after election, in other words threats that they took seriously but in the end did nothing to aid Mueller and his way too many democrat attorneys, and wasting our money all for NOTHING but to seem relevant when he and his group were not relevant but in my mind thieves of our $30 or more millions and I see each and everyone of them with Mueller as criminals as well as all those in the CIA/FBI/NSA, and “friends”. Will make a good book but I want them seriously punished, PERIOD! Entertaining how the leftists in both houses were sooo happy awaiting the report, and now denigrating Mueller!

        My question is to the “legal eagles” on this site is this. Since all these “convictions” they obtained by this fraudulent investigation are based on a fraudulent investigation in the 1st place, do these people get to have the cases thrown out, and “sue the hell” out of the govt for costs and damages to recoup their lives and fortunes?

          Patrick Fitzgerald opened an investigation into the “illegal disclosure” of Valerie Pflame as a CIA agent even though she was not nor had she ever been a covert operative (the stated purpose of the statute), and the identity of the individual who had disclosed Pflame’s employment was known to Fitzgerald before he ever began the investigation (Richard Armitrage, Deputy Secretary of State who was fired by Dick Cheney when George Bush took office).
          Scooter Libby was convicted for lying to prosecutors because his recollection of the date on which he discussed Pflame with a reporter (Tim Russert, a deep state shill) differed from the reporter’s recollection — neither of which could be documented.
          Sound familiar? Does that meet your standard for a fraudulent investigation in the 1st place? Libby recouped nothing, and until President Trump pardoned him (something George Bush was too cowardly to do — he only commuted the prison sentence), he was a convicted criminal.
          The answer to your question is an emphatic no.

    The special counsel was necessary because Trump was being set up for slaughter before he even takes office. They had multiple investigations on Trump and his people going on simultaneously.

    The special counsel consolidated the Carter Page, Papadopoulos, Flynn and Manafort witch hunts into one grand inquisition.

    The fatal flaw in the scheme was the fact that Russian collusion with Trump was just an illusion created by the intelligence agencies themselves. Mueller was essentially sent on a kamikaze mission.

    I really think they thought/hoped Trump would’ve resigned by now. Big miscalculation.

      The Collusion Illusion was not created by the IC it was fabricated out of whole cloth by the crooks in the ClintonCrimeSyndicate.

      “Oddly, no one is blaming the political arsonist who started the dumpster fire that is Russiagate. The Russian conspiracy theory was invented by the Clinton campaign. It was used as a pretext for spying on Trump associates. And then became an argument for invalidating the results of the 2016 election. And while the Republicans and Democrats tore each other apart over Russiagate, Hillary Clinton sipped her chardonnays and spent the evenings cackling madly at the TV while watching Washington D.C. burn.” ~ Dan Greenfield over at FrontPageMag today.

      https://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/273299/hold-hillary-accountable-russiagate-hoax-daniel-greenfield

      Perfect description : Hillary Clinton = political arsonist

      “Russiagate was not a media failure. The media these days is just a Democrat messaging operation. Its broadcasts and articles exist to promote the partisan agendas of its political faction. Holding the media accountable for spreading smears, lies and conspiracy theories is like blaming the dog, instead of the owner, when it makes a mess on your lawn. The media makes messes, but it doesn’t originate them.
      MSNBC, CNN and the Washington Post can’t and won’t clean up the Russiagate mess. The only one who can is a retired politician dictating books, doing speaking tours and watching TV in her home in Chappaqua, New York. She is also the only person to have escaped a Russiagate reckoning.
      Unlike her fellow Democrats, she has nothing at stake in this post-Clinton political order and is happy to watch the country burn, and her party with it, to slake the frustrated anger of her final defeat.” ~ DG

          Your gut may be telling you right. Check out this piece (link below):

          “Steele’s information didn’t only flow in one direction. In January 2016, before the Fusion GPS dossier project kicked-into-gear, Johantan Winer and Strobe Talbott were sharing with Steele via Orbis’s Canada hosted servers and email system documents authored by Cody Shearer, who produced a ‘second Trump-Russia dossier’. This document consisted of two four-page reports, one titled “Donald Trump—Background Notes—The Compromised Candidate,” the second “FSB Interview”.

          The reports are almost identical in terms of content and layout to the Steele dossier but references unnamed Turkish businessman with “excellent contacts within the FSB” as the source. The reports echo the same salacious claims and alleged corruption and collusion. Cody Shearer’s mysterious ‘one-eyed man from Istanbul’ source claims that Trump was “filmed in Moscow in November 2013, during the Miss Universe pageant in the presidential suite of the Ritz Carlton Hotel”. He also said that there was a copy of the video somewhere in Bulgaria but that he couldn’t get it.

          Strobe Talbott is Cody Shearer’s brother in law and was Cody’s brother Derek’s roommate in Yale. Talbott is a State Department Russian expert who served as Deputy Secretary of State in the Clinton Administration. Talbott’s wife Brooke Shearer was Hillary Clinton’s personal aide and the lead investigator (nicknamed “The Dumpster Diver”) responsible for digging-up dirt on Bill Clinton’s sexual misconduct accusers. Strobe Talbott and his wife Brooke Shearer knew and worked with Mary Jacoby, Glenn Simpson, Peter Fritsch, Neil King, and Shailagh Murray since the mid 1990s. Talbott knew Steele since at least 2006.”

          When asked how he got the information about the January 2016 email traffic Apelbaum answered a bit evasive.
          He is using OSINT (Open Source Intell), yet this would seem to require something more, unless a web-robot managed to pick up the email from an unprotected email server.
          In case they were using Linux machines, it is possible that some admin made some very bad choices in setting up the email system. And on lInux/Unix systems emails are essentially just documents (files) in a directory, not stored in a database. That means that when the file-shares where those documents are stored happen to be open to the internet then a simplerobot web-crawler can find them. Woopsy.
          That is not really hacking, maybe a bit borderline like trespassing (defense would say: my robot is just a stupid search crawler, and like Google all directories open to the internet are automatically visited).

      True, And that’s why they tried get Halperin the spy on Trumps campaign and the reason they tried to lure Papodoupalas and Carter Page into “colluding with the Russians. “

      The deepstate would then be able to say that his campaign did in fact “collude” with Russia.

      If we look at the pattern of what they did to Manafort and Cohen and attempted to do to Corsi and Stone, then they would have pressured the patsies to lie against President Trump in exchange for their freedom outside of prison.

    Two things.
    1. Do not forget to link Rosenstein’s back dated secret written and verbal scope messages to Mueller, which Mueller used to answer Manafort’s motions to the Federal Court during his trial. That puts and even more onerous and possible legal issue on the table, with respect to Manafort’s dismissed court motions, this particular Federal Judge and of course Rosenstein’s actions.
    2. SGE Richman was technically a government employee while handling Comey’s classified materials and as such he is definitely subject to US Codes concerning the handling of classified materials, especially since he signed certifications to gain his clearance that he understood his responsibilities regarding the handling of classified materials .

      Mueller is in deep sh*t for not publicly coming out in July 2017 and declare his investigation was concluded and instead asked for a new scope to try to prove obstruction from July 2017 – March 2019. He wasted millions of our tax dollars trying to goad the President into firing Rosenstein and Mueller. He perpetuated a fraud on the US Government and was enabled by a long list of coupists.

    Is it fair to say that this whole thing largely hinges on whether Barr is on our side, or their side (And IMHO he can’t “Fence sit” this, given the obvious abuses of power that were undertaken to try and torpedo Trump)? Barr can either tell these rogue DOJ factions to get in line, or he can permit them to run rampant, a la Sessions. I’ve been very pleased w/ Barr’s a) expediting the closure of the SC investigation (months ahead of their preferred schedule, no doubt) and b) forcing Rosey to hang around to sign his name on a Memo affirming that the President was innocent of all charges (Remember; Rosey was looking to get out of dodge right after the report). I hope that Barr is a firewall for whatever cockamamie charges the “SDNY” is working up right now.

    One guy we don’t hear much from/about lately? Chris Wray. What is that snake up to?

    From “Devin Nunes Discusses Mueller Report Release”
    SD asked the question “Why did they need the Page FISA so desperately?”
    I’ll repeat my comment:
    Maybe it’s as simple as that being the best way the corrupt political hacks could introduce the phony dossier into the bloodstream of the investigation (and by extension into the public arena) which would cause the most political damage to Donald Trump and create a road map for the false narrative to be carried by the complicit media.
    Could the Page FISA have essentially been a trojan horse for the Steele Dossier, which provided enough smoke and cover to allow the corrupt political hacks to pursue other “crimes” that could be used against President Trump, i.e. obstruction.

      Bingo!! Plus, let’s not forget all the set-ups. TGP just published another article reminding us that Hillary supporter Professor Jane Camp planted/hacked the Trump supporter in the Alfa Bank matter (which Hitlery immediately tweeted out); Fusion set up the Trump Tower meeting w/Loretta Lynch’s help; the Clinton-Lynch tarmac meeting; the DNC non-Russia hack; Peter Strzok being one of the writers on the Intelligence Community’s Assessment on the DNC hacks, to which they attached the Dossier; and so many other set-ups for Carter Page, Papadopoulos, Flynn, and the like; and best of all–THE RAIDS–to try to get Pres. Trump to somehow intervene/obstruct.

    Listen to the interview of Judicial Watch Tom Fitton on Dobbs. He indicates something that I know Sundance is already writing about: If Mueller knew that the collusion narrative was false why did he allow it to continue through the 2018 elections? He did nothing because if he had immediately dropped the collusion charges, then the Dem House would not have been elected. If he immediately cleared Trump, Repubicans would still have held the House. Per Judicial Watch.

    Comey wrote his memos to attack and demean Trump. I think he was part of the set up attempt against Trump.

    So, these memos will be used by Dems/media to attack Trump.

    I agree that it looks like Mueller knew there was no collusion in the Fall 2017, however, Mueller will never admit that. There will be interviews/indictments in recent months (ie Stone) they will use to say they were still investigating collusion.

    Trump’s legal team should make the case though….many Americans will see it. I just don’t think you can prove it without evidence or a witness.

    The Last Refugee with excellent analysis as always.
    +The Judge is an Obama appointed Judge. … BUT, he may be an honest man, or he doesn’t want to be a ‘less-than-truthful’ part, of the ‘disingenuous’ Russian Collusion investigation. = The Judge is on the spot now, + also in regards to the History Books yet to be written. [In the USA, everyone is presumed innocent, until proven guilty ~ even the Judges.]

    The Last Refugee has accurately pointed out, how the ‘paper-trail’ of the real ‘conspirators’ is being revealed. A quote from a column by The Last Refugee: = ‘Additionally, Nunes discusses his approach at sending AG William Barr ~criminal referrals.’

    1. Daniel Richman is a law professor and former prosecutor. Not a technical expert. Just because his area was encrypted communications doesn’t mean that he needed database access. He may have just gave advice about legal issues related to surveillance (e.g. putting back doors in).

    2. Surely Richman signed some nondisclosure agreements or the like. If the Comey memos are considered to have been illegal leaks, than he may/should be in danger of prosecution.

    3. Putting Richman on this list is just more cozy cozy behavior by Comey (along with the massive promotions he doled out to favorites within the department).

    4. Someone above says “nobody works for free”. This is silly. Access to insider info can be valuable for other jobs, for networking, etc. And Richman likely didn’t do much real work, was just an advisor. Furthermore, this keeps him involved if he ever wants to go back in the future with a big job in the government. At a minimum, it probably gives him justification to keep his background investigation (BI or SBI) current, which is valuable for any future consulting work (even if not at the time working for pay).

    5. The judge’s delay is concerning because not only is the judge giving an extra week, the deliverables is not the info at the end of that time but a government argument on why they shouldn’t give the memos, etc.

    6. It is not 100% clear to me that when all these items are turned over to the judge that she will release them all. Even if she has seen them, it appears that she no longer has them (perhaps they are controlled). Even if all she wants to do is release them, it is clear she no longer has copies.

      That would be another reason to hide the fact that Mueller stopped looking for “collusion” and was trying to CREATE, not “investigate” obstruction. Virtually anything Trump would do, or say, about “collusion” would be used as a means to create the “pattern” of “obstruction.”

      Investigators are supposed to PROVE cases; to uncover the truth. “Building” a case, a term often used in those very circles of DOJ and FBI, is, in essence, a tendency toward FRAMING. You might “build” a case file to support an actual investigation. You do not “build” the CASE. You PROVE the case. That is an important distinction that has been lost on those people, and it filters down to the lower levels of those institutions. One gets ahead by STATISTICS–Indictments, search and arrest warrants, informations, and convictions. There is little talk about solving cases in those institutions.

      Good thinking

      However…..
      Obstruction of justice is “baked in” and the SC can request additional jurisdiction.
      Pay close attention to Part (a) for therein will lie Mueller’s “obstruction” stretch

      § 600.4 Jurisdiction.
      (a)Original jurisdiction. The jurisdiction of a Special Counsel shall be established by the Attorney General. The Special Counsel will be provided with a specific factual statement of the matter to be investigated. The jurisdiction of a Special Counsel shall also include the authority to investigate and prosecute federal crimes committed in the course of, and with intent to interfere with, the Special Counsel’s investigation, such as perjury, obstruction of justice, destruction of evidence, and intimidation of witnesses; and to conduct appeals arising out of the matter being investigated and/or prosecuted.

      (b)Additional jurisdiction. If in the course of his or her investigation the Special Counsel concludes that additional jurisdiction beyond that specified in his or her original jurisdiction is necessary in order to fully investigate and resolve the matters assigned, or to investigate new matters that come to light in the course of his or her investigation, he or she shall consult with the Attorney General, who will determine whether to include the additional matters within the Special Counsel’s jurisdiction or assign them elsewhere.

    With all this hoo-hah, which indeed is crucial for flagging Mueller’s seditious libel for the subversive fraud it was, we suspect that unredacted “full disclosure” would clear more underbrush on the Trail of Tears implicating Gangrenous hissef’ as Brennan’s red-diaper mob boss from mid-2015 if not before.

    Odds are, Mueller’s overly diffuse “obstruction” charge was a coordinated distraction, reducing focus on Benedict Barack as instigator of this whole sorry mess. If and when this “truthiest of truths” emerges, who’ll step up to wring this chicken’s neck

    Great puzzle work.

    Understanding that in regards to the President the sole focus was “obstruction” what evidence could Mueller even attempt to make that case with that isn’t full of holes

    1) “I hope you can see your way to letting this Flynn thing go.”
    HOLES
    -no direct order (even Comey admitted that)
    -Trump fired Flynn NOT Comey (at least at that time)
    -FBI agents didn’t think Flynn was even lying (McCabe, Comey
    -The “Flynn thing” a simple 18 USC 1001 violation has–for some unexplained reason– turned out to be the least “simple thing”

    2. Comey firing
    HOLES
    -RR memo
    –investigate “satellites” (Comey memo)
    -President can fire FBI Director for any reason (Comey testimony/Constitution)
    -Trump : “I might even lengthen out the investigation”
    -McCabe testifies “no effort to impede”

    All that leaves is “obstruction” of the Mueller investigation itself which would be based on what?

    Tweets about Mueller “Witch Hunt” (183 according to CNN)
    Media reporting about threats to fire Mueller, RR, and Sessions (DIDN’T HAPPEN)
    Tweets about Sessions
    Declassifying the “Nunes Memo”
    September plan to declassify info (Congressional oversight request that DIDN’T HAPPEN)
    Trump didn’t testify (NO LEGAL BASIS)

    Am I missing something here?

    Clearly Mueller’s creative writing crew will fluff this up with tales of Trump Tower meetings, favorable Russian comments, etc

    But when it comes right down to it, the possible “obstruction” case that Mueller can make is some seriously weak sauce….especially since

    MUELLER WAS ALLOWED TO COMPLETE IT.

    I pray Blowfish Nadler calls Barr up to testify about this and Jim Jordan & Co get a chance to ask:
    “Mr Mueller determined there was no collusion in Fall 2017 and he spent the rest of his time trying to make an obstruction case based on tweets from an innocent man defending himself?
    Mr Barr……have you ever been involved in a more ridiculous case?”

    I’m very interested in how he responds.
