Footnote Highlights Corruption of Mueller’s FBI Investigative Team….

Margot Cleveland has an interesting article in The Federalist today outlining how the DOJ (Mueller) investigation of Christopher Steele was dropped [READ HERE]. Essentially the article outlines how Lindsey Graham and Chuck Grassley sent a criminal referral of Chris Steele to Rosenstein/Mueller in January 2018; however the case was used as a shield to ward-off FOIA inquiry, but the case was never actually pursued – and eventually dropped.

At the time of the 2018 referral CTH noted the Grassley/Graham referral was not what it appeared [See Here].  Additionally, with hindsight and a greater understanding of the Mueller team corruption, we can see how this specific referral hits the center of the FBI intent around their Russia collusion-conspiracy.

The issue surrounds the October 2016 Carter Page FISA application and how the Steele Dossier was used therein.

When the stories first broke about the Steele Dossier being the majority of the FBI evidence (December 2017), the FBI investigators were claiming they were never aware of Chris Steele shopping his dossier to the media.  However, at the same time Glenn Simpson was testifying to congress that the FBI knew Chris Steele was shopping the dossier.

SIDE NOTE: The need for everyone to see what Fusion-GPS (Glenn Simpson) was saying is the reason why Dianne Feinstein “accidentally” released the Simpson transcript (remember, she had a cold).  Feinstein released the transcript five days after the Graham/Grassley referral.  Democrats knew everyone needed to be on the same page and reading from the same manuscript. I digress…

Also remember, Robert Mueller took over the counterintelligence investigation; so the FBI investigators from Crossfire Hurricane (2016) were now the same “40 FBI investigators” on Mueller’s team in 2017.

In late 2017 and early 2018 those FBI investigators were saying they were not aware of Steele shopping the dossier to the media; AND they were also claiming that Chris Steele never told them.  However, Glenn Simpson (Fusion GPS), and later Chris Steele himself, were telling a completely different story.  According to Simpson and Steele the FBI was fully aware of Steele shopping the dossier.

Enter Graham and Grassley.

Senators Graham and Grassley suspected, likely knew, the FBI/DOJ was the group lying about this ‘Steele/Dossier/Media’ angle in an effort to support the validity of the Dossier used in the FISA application.  In order to prove the DOJ and FBI were lying, Grassley and Graham sent a criminal referral to Rod Rosenstein:

Essentially Graham and Grassley were saying:  ‘if the FBI is being truthful, then Chris Steele lied to the FBI’… so go prosecute him.

Remember, these FBI agents are on Mueller’s team and the criminal referral was sent to Rosenstein; but due to the scope of Mueller’s investigation the referral was -in effect- being sent to Robert Mueller.

It is the FBI who lied to the FISA Court in the application. It is the FBI who were claiming in their FISA application the dossier was not ‘shopped’. It was the FBI attempting to enhance the dossier credibility by making statements/claims about what Chris Steele presented to them. It is NOT Christopher Steele making these claims. Christopher Steele knew the ‘dossier’ was presented to media. Heck, Christopher Steele briefed media.

It was Robert Mueller’s FBI investigators who were lying; and the referral was sent to Robert Mueller because the special counsel held all jurisdiction on the Russian collusion investigation; and at the heart of that investigation was the Steele Dossier and FISA application.  Mueller’s 2017, 2018 and 2019 FBI team were essentially investigating the claims within the Steele Dossier they helped create in 2016.

This is where Margot Cleveland’s article comes in.  The FBI used the Grassley/Graham criminal referral, the existence of an ongoing criminal investigation, to argue against public disclosure (and enforce redactions) within the James Comey’s memos on May 4, 2018.  However, in December of 2018 those reasons for redaction were dropped because the criminal investigation was no longer ongoing.  Heck, it was never opened.

The FBI used the referral as a shield and never investigated the underlying claim because the referral would have actually proved FBI lying, not Chris Steele lying.

♦ The key takeaway is to point out the scale of corruption amid the forty FBI investigators participating in the Mueller Probe.  [BACKSTORY HERE]

They honestly don’t think we can see them.  They act like the Wizard of Oz after the curtain has been pulled back & they are still shouting into the microphone.

It is quite amazing.

♦ Prove the July 31st, 2016, Crossfire Hurricane operation originated from fraud by exposing the CIA operation that created the originating “Electronic Communication” memo. Declassify that two-page “EC” document that Brennan gave to Comey.

♦ Release and declassify all of the Comey memos that document the investigative steps taken by the FBI as an outcome of the operation coordinated by CIA Director John Brennan in early 2016.

♦ Reveal the November 2015 through April 2016 FISA-702 search query abuse by declassifying the April 2017 court opinion written by FISC Presiding Judge Rosemary Collyer. Show the FBI contractors behind the 85% fraudulent search queries. [Crowdstrike? Fusion-GPS? Nellie Ohr?]

♦ Subpoena former DOJ-NSD (National Security Division) head John Carlin, or haul him in front of a grand jury, and get his testimony about why he hid the abuse from the FISA court in October 2016; why the DOJ-NSD rushed the Carter Page application to beat NSA Director Admiral Mike Rogers to the FISA court; and why Carlin quit immediately thereafter. Squeeze this bastard’s nuts in the proverbial legal vice.

♦ Prove the Carter Page FISA application (October 2016) was fraudulent and based on deceptions to the FISA Court. Declassify the entire document, and release the transcripts of those who signed the application(s); and/or depose those who have not yet testified.

♦ Release all of the Lisa Page and Peter Strzok text messages without redactions. Let sunlight pour in on the actual conversation(s) that were taking place when Crossfire Hurricane (July ’16) and the FISA Application (Oct ’16) were taking place.

♦ Release all of Bruce Ohr 302’s, FBI notes from interviews and debriefing sessions, and other relevant documents associated with the interviews of Bruce Ohr and his internal communications. Including exculpatory evidence that Bruce Ohr may have shared with FBI Agent Joseph Pientka. [And get a deposition from this Pientka fella]

♦ Release the August 2nd, 2017, two-page scope memo provided by DAG Rod Rosenstein to special counsel Robert Mueller to advance the fraudulent Trump investigation, and initiate the more purposeful obstruction of justice investigation.

Yes, they were spying.

Release this material, and the entire corrupt construct is exposed….

            speaking of some people did something, and of casual observers, while i’m not sure exactly what omar meant by it, to me it summarizes well what the average consumer of the mockingbird media accurately understands of the attacks of 2001. a bit like crossfire hurricane and its expectations of a trump takedown, mueller’s other corrupt investigation led to the understanding that nineteen arabs with box cutters, led by khalid sheikh mohammed and osama bin laden, hijacked and flew planes into the wtc and the pentagon, with another landmark spared by the heroism and sacrifice of the fourth plane’s passengers and crew. such evil acts explained thus led many to support the wars fought with the passions of 9-11 from afghanistan to iraq, from libya to syria.

            as crossfire hurricane is litigated and explicated, perhaps its revelation of monstrous crimes at the very highest levels of government, attempting to utterly corrupt the democratic republic’s hallowed presidential election, which were kept at least somewhat secret for quite a while, might eventually bring some justice for those who died in 2001, as well as the hundreds of thousands, indeed millions so harmed by the yinon wars aka seven countries in five years, the motives for 9-11. we shall see if such a correction to mueller’s first investigation ever occurs, as it seem it may to his second.

            I agree with you, I have a hard time watching Hannity too, but I remember on one of his shows before Obama’s first election, he warned America about what would happen if he won . At that time Hannity was concerned about the takeover by the leftist in our country and how the more control they have terrible consequences “we the people” would have to contend with, and he was correct. This is why Donald Trump’s time came and he is our President and Hillary is not. I have never forgotten Hannity’s words and appreciate him for this lesson.
            Thank you God for giving us a great and true leader Donald Trump in these dire times.

        oldumb, agree. The MSM ( the democrat/DS/CIA and dirty cops) propaganda machines have programmed the the left for over thirty plus years that its going to take some time to deprogram them and this is where it falls on our conservative news outlets like Hannity to initiate the deprogramming. Hannity and others have the major task on their hands, repetition is needed to deprogramming these people who have been under the CIA, DNI and FBI’s propaganda operative spells (MSM outlets). I pray that our conservative family will come to the understanding of the depth of this deprogramming operation that is no different than the Stockholm syndrome effect. We need to give our support to individuals like Hannity, Tucker and others who use the repetition tools to awaken them from the spell. Cheers friends!

    I have been in front of and against some really brilliant attorneys, and I can tell you Barr is just such a brilliant lawyer. The best thing is watching while they set up the mark, carefully maneuvering them in such a way there is no way out but where the lawyer wants them to go.
    For that reason, I think when Barr said the Trump campaign was spied on, and the media went nuts, there is a reason he said that. If you figure that the Mueller report says there was no collusion, what do you want to bet that Mueller Report will say that spies were sent in to the Trump campaign with the mission to recruit for Russia, and they were all rebuffed.
    If that happens, look to Barr and watch for just a small smirk, and the Democrats realizing they are not his mental match, and they are going to get steamrolled.

      It’s maybe like all actors reading the same script – then they coordinate when & what they get to say after the prior actor finishes their part.

        Creaky Old Feinstein does what she’s told. Simpson said things in committee behind closed doors that benchmarked key facts on the record. Feinstein was apparently encouraged to protect the Democrat Collusion Cadre; so as to help better guide them on what lies to tell and what lies not to tell. By leaking the Simpson testimony accidentally-on-purpose, she both protects the Collusion Cadre and obstructs justice in a clever manner that informs Democrats how better to lie yet not be trapped by the facts placed on record by Simpson confidentially behind closed doors. Then she plays the Senile card by telling the “granny had a bad cold” lie, artfully playing the feeble old woman card in away that makes her the victim and paralyzes the male provincials in the Senate too polite to call “bullshit” on a wicked old cow who has stayed too long at the trough.

          Like synchronising watches, and Nunes may be onto something, with the criminal referals for CONSPIRACY.

          Unlike Collusion, Conspiracy to commit a crime is, in itself a crime.

          And, the defendants can NOT get seperate trials, given the charge.
          Important, because with seperate trials, they could each say “not me, it was HIM!”, creating reasonable doubt for the jury, and all get off.

          Acts like “getting stories straight” are evidence of guilt. If each are telling facts, no need. Lies, you need to co-ordinate.

    The Clinton camp thru Mark Elias, gets this crap info to James Baker, and the FBI. The FBI does due diligence, and discovers the “dossier” is dodgy (there’s no there, there), so they can’t actually do anything with it. Clinton/fusion GPS are mad that the FBI appears to be doing nothing (wasting time before the election) with their “amazing” oppo research, so Steele is ordered to start shopping it to the media and congressmen. This will torpedo the timeline the FBI laid out.

    This is hilarious (now, that it failed, and looking back) they had way too many people involved in this attempted coup, it was destined to be discovered if Trump won.

        Muellers investigation was not about finding “dirt” on DJT, Hillarys team had already detirmined that was a ‘dry hole’.
        The focus, from day one was to build a case for obstruction, by entrapping or manipulating the subject into obstructing.
        One way, by triggering PDJT into firing Mueller, or even Rosie, preferably both.
        The phony interview, of Mueller, for a job he could not legally hold, with Rosie present as a witness, was an attempt to get PDJT to say anything that they could use to bolster a case of obstruction.
        Mueller wasn’t looking for dirt, anymore than he was looking for evidence of Russia collusion.
        He was trying to goad or entrap PDJT in an Obstruction or perjury charge.

After I finished reading it several days later and thought about commenting, interest had already waned.

      Col. Nicholson had the quintessential attitude of the FBI.
      He was a “British Officer”..And it was his function as a British Officer to “protect” and uphold any decision a British Officer made and the institution he belonged to

      It is a POW’s job to escape, but the Col stopped this by saying no one will attempt escape because they where ordered to surrender.

      Comey or whoever, Obama, the Hag, ordered the spying on the President.
      We, the FBI will follow orders.

      The Col built a bridge “aiding” the enemy under the guise of helping the prisoners.
      The Col made friends with the enemy….even to the point of warning the Japanese commander that the Bridge was going to be blown up.

      It was his bridge…..It was his decision to build it……He was a British Officer…
      His decisions could never be wrong….his logic forbade that…

      Mueller’s decisions could never be wrong……He was ordered to do it. It would be good for his team…..he had to protect his 40…..No matter what they did….the FBI could do nothing wrong……..and Mueller would protect them

      And in the end….When the Col was dying….he said: “What have I done?”
      He built a bridge for the enemy.

        The Flynn entrapment was meant to goad PDJT into an obstruction act. The malicious Manafort prosecution was the same. With good legal counsel, PDJT never took the bait.

        PDJT took Sundance’s advice and did not go near the “by the book” trap. Instead, PDJT took Sundance’s advice and went for the origin of the seditious hoax and attempted coup.

        This is really awesome! (I grew up a southern laficornia surfer dude) That the Barr investigation may prove that the entire Mueller SC investigation was illegal, and all of the indictments are fruit of that poison tree. That will void all judgements and verdicts, eliminating the need for any PDJT pardons.

    OK, don’t throw tomatoes at me. Is it *possible* some of these obvious crimes may actually have been taken up somewhere — supposedly Huber, but maybe elsewhere — and we just don’t know about it; not only for lack of leaks, but due to a concerted effort to keep the investigations shielded until indictments are ready? It’s true that the public normally isn’t constantly apprised of ongoing investigations and only learns about charges when their issued — like the college admissions scandal. There are “believers” out there who are absolutely certain this is the case. I get it that certainty is foolish (as is the presumption that one “knows” something happening behind the scenes without a predicate to draw the inference). But is it also going too far to absolutely rule it out?

    It’s still hard for me to swallow that 3 years into the Trump administration, such wholesale, massive cover-ups are happening in broad daylight, on a matter that goes to the core of our republic, Trump’s presidency and possibly his safety and that of his family. And all because Trump can’t get seem to get on top of his staffing. I don’t mean to make light — they don’t call it a swamp for nothing — but especially after the Sessions debacle, if it were any of us, we’d be damn sure each and every significant post was being vetted inside and out …. someone like Liu would not be permitted to bury so many consequential investigations.

    So it becomes hard to know which direction Occam’s razor takes us: On one hand, when it looks like the swamp and acts like the swamp chances are it’s the swamp. What’s more, our justice system has rules and procedures that are binary — investigations are pursued or they’re not; charges are brought or they’re not; and when plea agreements are cut or deals arranged, that’s it. There’s no “shadow” justice system operating in a shadowy parallel. (BTW, thanks to Barr for the word “binary” to describe how it works — helpful!).

    On the other hand, Trump’s made it known virtually every week of his presidency that he knows what’s going on — we know he knows — and he must know the danger of taking a shot a the deep state and missing. He’s in the clear from the Mueller investigation; what is the advantage of accusing “treason” while not knowing if you can back it up? So which is more likely, that on every important milestone, he gets owned by the swamp even as he continues to up the ante — or that he HAS got the right players in charge and the huge crimes aren’t falling through the net, but the investigations aren’t being conducted amidst the regular channels of information flow. Is the latter even a practical possibility?

    I am reminded again of the breathtaking, brazen corruption of Feinstein, who leaked this transcript and then also served as a rule-breaking, dishonest conspirator in the Kavanaugh fiasco. She is a truly despicable and disgusting embarrassment to her office, her constituents, and the country.

      From the above article:
      It doesn’t seem likely that the FISA application was misleading, though, said Charles Stimson, a former federal prosecutor and former military judge.

      Stimson noted that a page in the FISA application for a warrant explained that the information was based on an opposition research dossier compiled by a former British intelligence agent, Christopher Steele.

      Although the application did not say it was paid for by Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign and the Democratic National Committee, Stimson said, the application letter was clear that the document was opposition research directed against Trump.

      “From a pure legal standpoint, it was accurate,” Stimson, now manager of the national security law program at The Heritage Foundation, told The Daily Signal.

      “It arguably wasn’t completely forthcoming,” he said. “But the fact is, a federal district court judge had the information and ruled on it and reauthorized surveillance. … There is a gray zone. It didn’t say Hillary Clinton paid for it and that it wasn’t verified.”

          Exactly. And I thought the standards for verification had to be high, because before the FISA Court, there is no defense attorney defending the rights of the US citizen who is about to be spied on. Then let’s factor in that this amounts to spying on a Presidential campaign by an opposing party ….

          Except for Cohen Prague trip, it wasn’t “KNOWN” to be false. Theyvused the 702 search requests, to make sure they did NOT include things which could be proven to not be true.
          X, a Trump campaign person, was in Y city. Z, a known russian operative, was ALSO in Y city. Thats the info they got from the,search requests when composing the dossier, and that would later be used to try to CONFIRM it.
          Then, they allege that X and Z met, in city Y. Thats the lie, but it can neither be confirmed or disproved.
          Point is, it was NOT “known to be false”, unless and until you get back to the ORIGINATION.
          NELLIE sure knew it was false, and Chris Steele.

        The Obamas did NOT give their law licenses up in order not to pay the recertification fee. Michelle Obama was involved in some fraud at a Chicago hospital

        Why did Michelle Obama give up her license to practice law in 1993?

        Records at the Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission of the Supreme Court of Illinois list her status as “voluntarily inactive and not authorized to practice law.”

        It further states that Michelle license is “on court ordered inactive status.”

        The statement has many bloggers wondering why a court would issue an order to stop Michelle Obama from practicing law, and some have even suggested the first lady may have been facing allegations of misconduct.

        Since money laundering is a crime, I think peddling Russian disinformation (lie laundering) is just as criminal, if not more so. Every time the dossier moved it was washed and rinsed by very dirty hands. It was a dirty dossier and every hand that touched it knew what it was.

    The Flynn entrapment was meant to goad PDJT into an obstruction act. The malicious Manafort prosecution was the same. With good legal counsel, PDJT never took the bait.

    PDJT took Sundance’s advice and did not go near the “by the book” trap. Instead, PDJT took Sundance’s advice and went for the origin of the seditious hoax and attempted coup.

    This is really awesome! (I grew up a southern laficornia surfer dude) That the Barr investigation may prove that the entire Mueller SC investigation was illegal, and all of the indictments are fruit of that poison tree. That will void all judgements and verdicts, eliminating the need for any PDJT pardons.

    • They believed if all else failed then the raid on Cohen’s office and the invasion of Roger Stone’s house would surely do it. Also, by paying Lanny Davis to represent Cohen “pro-bono”, they were sure they could force him to lie against Trump. Beware, the kitchen sink is coming. It is the only thing they haven’t thrown at Trump.

    Most of the crimes committed by the Obama Administration and Deep State will not be punished, they are already protected.

    When the FBI interviewed Hillary and did not pursue charges, they will have to find new evidence to charge her. That is why Comey opened and shut the case in October 2016 because the SDNY found the evidence. No one knows WHAT steps were taken that we are unaware of to limit that exposure back then and since.

    At some point, we all have to recognize that Deep State has a lot of legitimate discretion in what they pursue and don’t pursue. Unfortunately for MAGA, Deep State is entrenched and been entrenched for decades through both Dem and GOP administrations. THEY KNOW how to set people up. THEY KNOW how to protect their own. THEY STILL RUN the Departments but maybe less so. However, THEY STILL are the outside groups, contractors, sources, consultants that have been put in place for DECADES.

    IF, IF, IF, every crime they committed was on EVERY MSM outlet 24/7 for the next 2 years, their backdoor escape plans and panic rooms are already in place. In many cases, it is statutes of limitations, in others it is the evidence that is gone.

    And even if EVERYONE OF US KNOWS WHAT THEY DID AND HOW THEY DID IT, they will still walk. Some of those 40 FBI/DOJ malcontents/criminals that Sundance references MAY face some repercussions but that is it.

    And, there is NOTHING that PDJT or the AG can do about most of it because the bad guys knew how to use the law, shadows and department practice/policies to not only try to frame PDJT but also to cover it up.

    Going forward, I trust PDJT to do what he discerns he can do on behalf of the country. I doubt that Ann Coulters and most rabid lock-her-up types will be satisfied.

    Just my opinion.

      Secondly, they were not nearly as clever as they thought they were;

      IF the detirmination is made that the ONLY way to repair the damage to the credibility of the DOJ and FBI is to have THEM investigate and prosecute, impartially, no matter who’s head rolls, there WILL be prosecutions.

    The strategy to win this war against our country must follow PDJT lead — the greatest weapon is sunlight. Methodical uncovering of all that is slithering in the dark, and exposing to as many a possible the mechanisms of evil around us.

    The Truth is a like a Lion: You don’t have to defend it. Let it loose and it will defend itself — Augustine of Hippo

    Exposure to plenty of sunlight, then round up and punishment needs to include:
    The architects and principle players of all of the events plotting against the bypass and destruction of legitimate government and illegal acts: Benghazi, uranium one, Fast and Furious, the Clinton money laundering machine, the southern immigration caravans, the FISA scandals

    All those involved in what is retrospectively found to be false and sham investigations.

    All those involved in creating the false narratives, who knew they were not true, or WHO DID NOT MAKE REASONABLE effort to verify it was not true

    every newscaster who said an untruth, knowing it was an untruth. Every editor who made sure the lies were front page, every recipient of the news cycle marching orders from the left collusionists, every author of the national leftist news cycle,

    Every Hollywood mouthpiece, every educator from elementary to college who contributed to the false narrative.

    Standards of ethical journalism, education, government leadership and responsibilities, lobbying and influencing legislators, lawyers, judges, law enforcement, and deep state bureaucrats need to be reaffirmed in relation to the constitution.

    we must refresh and restore truth in the education of our children, colleges, and universities. An excellent place to start is in trade schools – to push the development of excellent laborers and innovators in a new education system.

    It the existing educational systems, dry up inappropriate tax money, put sunlight on the anti-constitutional, anti-Christian agendas and brainwashing of our children, and expose the influx of illegal money shaping our educational system. Get the Marxists, communists, and anti-Americans out of our educational system. Stop the flow of intellectual capital of our educational systems to foreign students who hate us.

    FTA “On Thursday, Rep. Devin Nunes reiterated his plans to refer eight individuals involved in targeting Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign to Attorney General William Barr for a criminal investigation. But a close look at recent filings in the CNN Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the FBI suggests that the DOJ has already closed one criminal referral—likely the Grassley-Graham referral of dossier author Christopher Steele….What changed? It wasn’t the closing of the Mueller probe, because the special counsel shuttering shop would not happen for several more months…The most logical explanation is that the FBI closed its investigation of Steele. If so, Barr can still right the ship and fully investigate all of the individuals responsible for targeting the Trump campaign, including Steele. Given Barr’s comments of late—that he believes the Trump campaign was spied upon—he seems poised to do so….A spokesperson for Graham’s office declined to comment on this article.”

    If the FBI did close the case against Steele that meant he did shop the dossier to the media before it was used to get the FISA warrant so that is correct? I’m an old simple man trying to follow all this and I just don’t have enough brain power left. I mistakenly posted this on Sundance’s original post dated January 29, 2018 yesterday afternoon and got no response, wonder why? Lol! That means the FBI lied to the FISA Judge about the virginity of the dossier correct? Well what happens next?

Hey…they “knew” or “suspected” that he’d been with a Russian prostitute (or some silly crap like that) sooooooooooooooo how/why did they not pick up on ANYone affiliated with DJT conspiring with the enemy until he posed a real threat to actually becoming President.
