Court Filing Reveals Numerous Comey Memos Including Investigative Meetings, Sources, Methods and Contacts…

A late day submission to DC Circuit Court in a FOIA case previously discussed, reveals the content of Mueller’s probe & use of multiple, previously unknown, James Comey memos. Additionally, within the filing we discover how Comey documented multiple events, meetings and information surrounding the FBI investigation of Donald Trump.

The documents surface as part of the FOIA case [Backstory Here] where DC Court Judge James E. Boasberg -an Obama appointee and also a FISA judge- asked the FBI to file an opinion about the release of Comey memos to the public.  There are two issues: (1) can the memos be released? and (2) can prior sealed FBI filings, arguing to keep the memos hidden, be released?

In a very revealing filing last night (full pdf below) the lead FBI investigator for the Mueller special counsel, David W. Archey, informs the court that with the ending of the special counsel some of the memo material can be released, such as their existence; however, Archey also states much of the memo content and sealed background material from the FBI must continue to remain sealed and redacted.

The FBI will file a further declaration on or before April 15, 2019, to explain why the remaining redactions to the Third Archey Declaration continue to be necessary. (page 2)

Within the filing we discover the lead FBI agent was David W. Archey (background here). Archey was selected by Robert Mueller when the special counsel took over the counterintelligence investigation from Special Agent Peter Strzok. According to ABC: “Agent David Archey is described by colleagues as a utility man of sorts within the FBI”. However, until now his exact role was not known.

(Source pdf)

Following the conclusion of the Mueller probe, David Archey was moved.  Effective March 8, 2019, Archey became head of the Richmond, VA, FBI field office. (link) Due to the corrupt nature of the special counsel, this is somewhat concerning. I digress…

The first three pages of the filing consist of David Archey explaining to the court that some of the material can be released, but other material must be withheld.  He then goes on to reference two prior sealed attachments outlined as “Exhibit A” and “Exhibit B”.

“Exhibit A” is a filing from the FBI on January 31st, 2018, essentially supporting an earlier “in camera ex parte declaration” requesting continuance of a prior court order to keep the background material sealed from public view.  In essence, the FBI didn’t want the public to know what was/is contained within the Comey memos (including the scale thereof).

“Exhibit B” is where the action is.

This is the original declaration outlining to the court on October 13th, 2017, why the Comey memos must be sealed.  It is inside this exhibit where we discover there are many more memos than previously understood, and the content of those memos is far more exhaustive because James Comey documented the FBI investigation.

In essence Comey created these memos to cover his ass. (pg 13):

FBI Agent Archey then goes on to explain what is inside the memos: It is in this section where we discover that Comey made notes of his meetings and conversations with investigators.

Along with writing notes of the meetings and conversations, apparently Comey also made notes of the sources and methods associated with the investigation.  Why would Comey generate classified information in these notes (sources and methods) unless he was just covering his ass because he knew the investigation itself was a risk…

The content of the memos seems rather exhaustive; it appears Comey is keeping a diary for use in the event this operation went sideways. (page #14, exhibit B)

All of those investigative elements would likely be contained in official FBI files and notes by the investigative agents.  There is no need for a contemporaneous personal account of meeting content unless Comey was constructing memos for his own protection. These memos appear to be motivated by the same mindset that caused Susan Rice to generate her email to self on inauguration day.

In the next section FBI Agent David Archey explains the scale of the memos.  There are obviously far more than previously discussed or disclosed publicly.  Additionally, look carefully at the way the second part is worded.

Archey is saying Comey’s written recollections should be withheld because it might affect the testimony of people familiar with the “memorialized conversations”. (page #15, Exhibit B)

 

This is an October 2017 filing, Comey was fired May 9th.  FBI Agent Archey is outlining Trump as the target who might adjust his testimony.  Again, more evidence of the special counsel focus being motivated by the obstruction case they were hoping to build. [Reminder, Comey was still FBI director at the time these memos were written]

The next section gets to the heart of why the FBI wants to keep the Comey memos hidden and not released.

In this section Archey outlines how FBI Director James Comey wrote down who the sources were; what code-names were assigned; how those confidential sources engaged with FISA coverage initiated by the FBI; what foreign governments were assisting with their effort; and what the plans were for the investigation.

Again, why memorialize all of this classified information unless the memos were intended as CYA protection for himself?

There’s also really good news in here.  Think about it.  Now we know the entire anti-Trump operation is memorialized in writing.  There is documentary evidence of the entire operation within these memos.  We did not know that before this moment.

Therefore, it looks like President Trump can add the Comey Memos to the pre-existing declassification list.  At any time, President Trump now has a set of documents he knows to exist that his office can ask to be released.  The investigation is over.

If the FBI was running an honest and genuine investigation; what do they have to fear from the release of the Comey Memos now that the investigation is over.

Here’s the full filing:

      Infantilizing their corruption, ownership and abuse of power does not really speak about the seriousness of all of this. For as long as I’ve been alive in this country, people have been grumbling about the lack of power the people have and the lack of choice we have in our own government. This is effectively the first time in our living history where we are actually SEEING this with our own eyes. The internet has cancelled out the media’s ability to lie to the public and deny anything has been wrong.

      Yes, those people believe they are the rulers of this country and they found it offensive the people’s genuine choice made it into office. Their arrogance does not go unnoticed and their complete lack of remorse in all of this should be acknowledged during sentencing.

      Wonder no longer, the Brits initiated Spygate with the willing participation of Brennan who then got the FBI involved. Why the Brits? Trump was pro-Brexit and that just wouldn’t do.

      Remember when President Trump was about to release the FISA application on Carter Page for public scrutiny? After the President made the announcement, he decided not to release the FISA citing the fact that he received calls from foreign leaders asking him not to follow through. Think maybe one of these foreign leaders was Theresa May? The Brits are extremely concerned that their involvement in Spygate will be exposed.

        I don’t think we should get TOO hung up on ot being “the brits”; sure, there were people in power, in England, not wanting Brexit. But, there were ‘leaders’ in the EU, very much NOT wanting Brexit, as well.

        They represent the status quo headlong rush to globalisation, and to them, PDJT is an intrinsic threat.

        May, Merkel, Macron and the whole cabal of corruptocrats see DJT as upsetting their apple cart. British intelligence, along with Australia certainly played the role, either because they were best positioned, or simply because they drew the short straw.
        Its much like deciding which Rebublicons in Congress, will vote to advance the madness. They pick those in purple districts, who can ‘safely’ rebuke the Republican base.

        Being in 5 eyes was certainly a factor, and a relationship beyween Brennan the marxist, and the head of MI5, probably (?) ANOTHER avowed marxist, certainly helped.

      Charles Stephens — I don’t think you have to wonder long. Halper – Christopher Steele – Mifsud – Alexander Downer – all were involved in allegedly setting up George Papadopoulos. Halper invited Papadopoulos to London, paid him $3K and all expenses, one there an Israeli “friend” introduced him to Alexander Downer’s assistant who invited him to dinner with Downer who asked him about the Russians (after Mifsud had told him the Russians had Hillary’s emails) at which time Downer allegedly contacted DC to tell them the Trump campaign was in contact with the Russians. Papadopoulos says he never told Downer about the Russians having Hillary’s email that he didn’t believe Mifsud and thought he was b.s.ing him. I just finished reading “Target of the Deep State” by George Papadopoulos and found it intriguing. It is obviously written from Papadopoulos’s point of view but thanks to Sundance, most of the stuff he said in it, I already knew, so at least on that stuff, he was telling the absolute truth. I recommend the book to anyone. Interesting how Sundance already had most of the story.

      Judge Andrew Napolitano cited three sources who told him British intelligence helped spy on the Trump campaign and gets taken off the air by Fox News. He has since returned but is much chagrined and generally now spouts only the globalist party line.

      It goes back to the Queen and the Privy Council. We have shown the proof that Stefan Halper worked with Sir Richard Dearlove and other Privy Council members like Geoffrey Pattie, Andrew Wood, Mark Malloch-Brown, Nick Clegg, (and even Aussie Alexander Downer). The overthrow attempt tracks back to the Brits and the Vatican. We have been showing our audience the proof for many months now. For example, did you know that Mueller was working with special council of the QUEEN Arvinder Sambei. The two of them worked together back in 9-11 days covering up their crime. Then you have another QUEEN spy – Alison Saunders – meeting with Nellie and Bruce Ohr at their home for dinner 4 days before the Trump Tower meeting.

      A similar but illegal arrangement is used in US Leo joint task forces to get around the niceties, like presenting evidence to the judge for a subpoena: DEA or NSA has the dirt that some Muni cop or Sheriff needs, but thats not supposed to be known, so the locals concoct a parralel story that justi fies the no knock raid, search, etc.

    Archey mentions “initation of ‘coverage'” on FISA.

    Would be good to know if the FISA does not specifically mention the coverage that FBI actually utilized once the FISA was obtained…

    There could be a discrepancy with what was ‘covered’ in FISA and what Comey memorializes in his memos…meaning he heard from subordinate details that were not ‘covered’ by the warrant. If it wasn’t in the warrant and info did not come from FISA…did it come from illegal listening (aka walls cleared to studs in West Wing POTUS sitting rooms).

    Here’s the FBI being told in 2001 to do a better job in asking for coverage and to stop illegal surveillance by not getting the correct coverage requested

    The language (lingua) of these documents is arcane and that is for a reason. Every entity which sets out to create a mystique engages in developing a special language which is meant to convey special meaning within and preserve the mystiques to those on the outside.. This is often done by adapting the meaning of words to a specific use.

    “Memorializing” in the outside world means commemorating. It is what Lincoln did in his Gettysburg Address. James Comey talked about “memorializing” as if we all consider the notes we make to be “memorializing” some sacred moment. We absolutely do not talk that way in the “real” world. A boss simply does not say to an employee: “be sure you memorialize this meeting.”

    Then you get to the argot of “302’s” and the latin legal mumbo jumbo and the acronyms such as FISA and all of the rest of the special “shortcut” language which is actually meant to lock others out.

    There is a “special” understanding of ethics which makes it illegal to lie to an FBI agent, but the FBI agent is entirely welcome to lie to you. St. Augustine spent a lifetime at figuring out the types of lying, both intentional and “accidental.” But the FBI has cut through all of the philosophical concerns and made a rule which just so happens to benefit the FBI. You may not lie to “justice,” but “justice” can send CNN and excessively armed agents of “justice” to your house in the pre-dawn hours and burst though your door because: “justice.” [Does this help to clarify the meaning of the word “justice?”]

    The French have a saying that in things mysterious, you look for the woman. Others say you follow the money. But when an organization controls the language (see: George Orwell) you may only look as the language directs you to look according to the Merlin’s-of-definition within the mystique of the organization.

    Revisit Director Comey’s testimony before the congressional committees and you see a man who is parsing his words with a precision the is meant to keep his meanings opaque.

    Notice what Sundance does time and time again. You get to read the mysterious argot and then you are offered the option of the highly experienced Sundance as to what it means. That makes the point. These bureaucrats have developed a series of mystiques protecting their areas of self- interest and they protect themselves and their actions by defending and deploying their mystiques.

    Anyone who has battled over the words chosen and how they arranged in a document should have an idea of the jungle in which the games are being played out.

    Winston Churchill was once told that something was “meaningful” and he erupted. Essentially, he barked that he wanted to know the meaning, instead of being told that it was cloaked behind something labeled “meaningful.”

      Ukrainian to US prosecutors: Why don’t you want our evidence on Democrats?

      https://thehill.com/opinion/white-house/437719-ukrainian-to-us-prosecutors-why-dont-you-want-our-evidence-on-democrats

      Ukrainian law enforcement officials believe they have evidence of wrongdoing by American Democrats and their allies in Kiev, ranging from 2016 election interference to obstructing criminal probes. But, they say, they’ve been thwarted in trying to get the Trump Justice Department to act.

      Kostiantyn Kulyk, deputy head of the Prosecutor General’s International Legal Cooperation Department, told me he and other senior law enforcement officials tried unsuccessfully since last year to get visas from the U.S. Embassy in Kiev to deliver their evidence to Washington.

      “We were supposed to share this information during a working trip to the United States,” Kulyk told me in a wide-ranging interview. “However, the [U.S.] ambassador blocked us from obtaining a visa. She didn’t explicitly deny our visa, but also didn’t give it to us.”

      …many of the allegations shared with me by more than a half-dozen senior Ukrainian officials are supported by evidence that emerged in recent U.S. court filings and intelligence reports. The Ukrainians told me their evidence includes:

      1. Sworn statements from two Ukrainian officials admitting that their agency tried to influence the 2016 U.S. presidential election in favor of Hillary Clinton. The effort included leaking an alleged ledger showing payments to then-Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort;

      2. Contacts between Democratic figures in Washington and Ukrainian officials that involved passing along dirt on Donald Trump;

      3. Financial records showing a Ukrainian natural gas company routed more than $3 million to American accounts tied to Hunter Biden, younger son of then-Vice President Joe Biden, who managed U.S.-Ukraine relations for the Obama administration. Biden’s son served on the board of a Ukrainian natural gas company, Burisma Holdings;

      4. Records that Vice President Biden pressured Ukrainian officials in March 2016 to fire the prosecutor who oversaw an investigation of Burisma Holdings and who planned to interview Hunter Biden about the financial transfers;

      5. Correspondence showing members of the State Department and U.S. Embassy in Kiev interfered or applied pressure in criminal cases on Ukrainian soil;

      6. Disbursements of as much as $7 billion in Ukrainian funds that prosecutors believe may have been misappropriated or taken out of the country, including to the United States.

    Other points of interest to consider.

    Archey is in volumes of sentences saying one basic thing. He does not want the release of full memos in part because Mueller was looking to ask for written responses from POTUS that they could contradict with these memos.

    This is all the language about revealing to a witness whether Comey said “everything” to Congress or just a ‘little’ bit about his memos.

      So, now that reasoning for keeping these secrets is gone it REALLY REALLY sucks for Comey that Mueller has ended his anal probing of the President. Let’s move along to the indictments of McCabe, Comey, Lynch, Yates, etc.

  16. There are numerous instances where the FBI is being disingenuous in its filing. The most noticeable consists of the claim that “former Director Comey was testifying as a private citizen” at the same time that the USDOJ and FBI OGC was restricting their testimony to Congress. This is key since as a private citizen Comey had no restrictions on what he could or could not tell Congress. He only restriction is to tell the truth. The OGC lawyer ensured that Comey didn’t disclose any information that would be harmful to the department, agency or the case. they are still active in that regard by refusing to disclose what is in those memos.

    Off the top of my head, I’d say Sundance and the Treepers are better investigators than the FBI which either can’t solve squat or doesn’t want to. I once held FBI in the highest esteem but after Mueller, Comey, Strzok, Page, McCabe et al, I believe it is a totally corrupt organization and there is no hope. I’d feel differently if there were any whistleblowers but there haven’t been. The much vaunted average agent has kept his/her mouth shut. That means either agreed, were afraid to lose their pensions OR useless as investigators. Whichever it was, the whole agency needs to be dissolved and a new FBI built from scratch, this time with men and women of integrity and/or courage.

      Understandable, HUMAN reaction regarding ‘rank and file’ FBI agents.

      Hoover KNEW what a powerful thing he had created, with the FBI. And, he undrrstood how badly the political hacks in D.C. WANTED to get their hands on that power, so they could USE it, for their own ends.

      So, he collected dirt on everyone; as that WAS the source of the FBI’s power.
      He used that dirt, in part, to prevent any administration from getting their hands on ‘his’FBI.

      When he died, Mueller was appointed as Director, and he immediately set about remaking the FBI, to be more amenable to political manipulation.

      Hence the 5 and out policy, where field agents must work at the DC office, or retire after 5 years. Gave him a chance to weed out agents not intimidated, or those who would question orders.

      Beyond that tho, we see federal agents ‘deep throating’ John Soloman and other reporters who have been on this case. We see key information finding its way into the public tealm, but without attribution.
      We KNOW this, (document, for instance), but we don’t know WHO authorised its release.
      And we see how an FBI ‘whistleblower’was treated by Muellers team, despite having “protection”.

      My point is, there MAY well be FBI agents, and DOJ personell, who some how managed to keep their head down, and slip through Muellers and Holders ‘screening’ process.
      For the last two years, the smart move would have been to continue to keep their head down; gather evidence, and note location of evidence. Only occasionally letting something out, when they could do so, anonymously.

      Aftrr all, a double agent is of little use, if they are ‘outed’. These people, assuming they exist, are villified as COWARDS, for not coming forward.

      But, come forward to WHO, and to what end? It is ONE thing, to have your career and life destroyed in order to accomplish some greater good, quite another to endure all that, for NOTHING.

      I believe their are some people, in Government, who ‘know things’, who are even ready to tell what they know, at the risk of their careers, IF THEY THOUGHT IT WOULD DO ANY GOOD.

      But WHO do they go to? The I.G.? Nope, Mueller closed THAT door, with the raid on the FBI whistleblower.
      To the PRESS? Are you kidding?
      Congress, say the Senate Intelligence Committee, making me laugh, now.

      Are they supposed to call the W.H., and make an appointment with POTUS?
      Yeah, THAT wouldn’t raise any red flags!

      And, we can’t assume that any one ‘good guy’ has enough info, by himself; the government is compartmentalised.

      So, if and to the degree that their are any undercover “good guys”, they are NOT going to publically “out” themselves, until they can have SOME assurances of protection, and that what they do will have some EFFECT; until then, they are better off keeping their head down, and their powder dry.

      I don’t BLAME them; its logical and in truth what any of us would do. Doesn’t make them cowards, it makes them prudent. IMHO

    I wish I could but I can’t read all the comments here. So I don’t know whether this has been posted before, but if not, and Sundance and other amateur sleuths haven’t seen it, wanted to get it out.
    It concerns Michael Flynn who, it looks to me from reading this article, also was set up by Stefan Halper.

    Flynn attended a dinner with a Russian with dual Brit and Russ citizenship. Did not sit next to her (she has photos of the table) but article on the dinner reported that she did (fake news?). She did talk with him according to the article and this was one of his “contacts” that he did not report which is what Mueller stung him on. The article states Flynn talked to a lot of people at that dinner who were “foreign” contacts.

    https://dailycaller.com/2019/04/04/cambridge-halper-flynn-spygate/?utm_medium=email

    This was in 2014 BEFORE Donald Trump even announced, but Flynn apparently was on the radar having warned that the Obama Administration (of which she was a part) was backing the wrong people in Syria and warned that something like ISIS would result out of this mistake.

    Archey mentions “initation of coverage’” on FISA and here we see the convergence of the current illicit spying operation and the “by the book” parallel construction to cover the illegal unconstitutional operation underway. This also provides cover to inject the dossier narrative into the official investigation.

    At this point any content coming from the SC or it’s coven should come with a warning that this is a product of biased witness interpretation, coercion and tampering and based upon illegal search and seizure of protected fourth amendment rights of property and information.

    There’s even more of a nefarious reason for Comey to have given the memos to his ‘friend’ to give to the New York Times beyond Comey’s public statement that it was to rile up the press and public to demand a Special Counsel…

    Note the statements about testimony (by Trump) being shaped by the knowledge of what Comey memorialized in these memos. In their publicly leaked form much was redacted giving the false impression that that’s all Comey noted about their conversations.

    It was meant to give Trump a false sense of what he was fighting.

    I have recently posted several posts along the theme that we have to have GUILTY pleas, with allocutions, NOT “trials” which will only divide the country further, and MAY even result in aquittals of the guilty (remember O.J., for example.

    I have posited that, in order to “clean up this mess”, the American people have to ‘hear’ these people, in their own words, fescribe what they did, hence ‘allocution’.

    As Sundance points out in his posting on the guilty plea of the women in the sex cult, an allocution, which is required as part of a guilty plea, requires a clear, unequivocal acceptance of responsibility, an aknowledgement of GUILT.

    And so, attempts to, on the one hand admit guilt and responsibility, as required, while at the same time attempting to excuse, rationalise or justify their actions come across as disengeuous, childish and lame.

    Anyway, I have further posited that the only way to get such damning evidence that the defendants have no choice but to plead guilty, and allocute, would be to ‘tap’ the NSA database, to get their phone calls, emails and text messages.

    Especially back in the early stages, when they were confident they would win, they probably communicated very clearly their plans and intents.

    I am now inclined to think that going to the NSA database won’t be necesary. By lawful means, we can get PLENTY of material, IN THEIR OWN WORDS, to document their intentions and actions.

    Mueller didn’t DESTROY evidence in most cases, he simply SEALED it.
    In fact, though I do not ascribe to the Mueller is white hat (never did) he may have done MUCH to assist an investigation into the coup.

    Basically, ANYTHING he put under seal, needs to be scrutinised. Investigators don’t have to LOOK for, and FIND the evidence, as Mueller has already DONE that.
    And, these beurocrats will be hung by their own words, much as the buerocrats of the 3rd reich hung themselves, with their meticulous documenting of the holocaust.

    Its what buerocrats DO; its ingrained into them, to document everything, to cover their *ss. Their problem is, when they ‘do wrong’, they document THAT, as well.

      There is a LOT of detail, in the material, it in fact DOES document, in EXQUISITE detail the “sources and methods” of the coupists.
      It tells who the code named ‘informants’ were and their handlers.
      Comey, the idiot, layed out the WHOLE THING, complete with a cast of characters.
      Beyond that, see my earlier post regarding “allocution”; he can write a memo, trying to CYA, with what HE knows at the time, imagining what some future reader might know, when reading it.

      However, that darn REALITY thing! Reading his self serving memos, within the context of what we KNOW, from other sources, his self serving obsfuscations will be layed bare, and sooo obvious, for all to see.

      They will ultimately be convicted and hung by their OWN words.

    So now we know why Mueller made no Obstruction Charge. Those notes have to remain hidden. They certainly couldn’t use them in impeachment when they expose the attempt to set up Trump.

    Just waiting for the shoe to drop with this reveal of extensive notes/memos with likely communication within FBI and across a spectrum of senior executives.
    ================

    The smoking gun is not that exculpatory evidence was withheld. But, that Mr. Comey likely wrote about his ‘train of thoughts’ and rationalizations as to why and what exculpatory evidence needed to be withheld and controlled in the grand narrative taking shape, and did so in a communicative manner with his peers and noted their input and opinion.

    The smoking gun is not the Mr. Comey writes and notes a clearly understood Rubicon of Politicalization. The smoking gun will be discussion and dissemination of preceived consequences of failing not to cross the Rubicon of Politicalization.

    The smoking gun will not only be a contemporary account of progression from one hurdle to the next over the gift that keeps giving aka the Clinton Political Machine. But, his true opinion on HRC and worded comtempt for the predicament that HRC has forced upon him.

    Everyone starting to get the picture…

    The big reveal will be that DoJ and the Special Consul’s use of the Comey memos was not selective but was a deliberate work product to achieve a goal established at the onset. Heck, he may have even memorialized, “How to trigger Mueller’s appointment.”
