Second Scope Memo – Rosenstein Authorizes Mueller to Target Michael Flynn Jr…

The original authorization for the appointment of Special Counsel Robert Mueller was May 17th, 2017.  However, the recently released Weissmann report shows there were two additional scope memos authorizing specific targeting of the Mueller probe.  The first scope memo was August 2nd, 2017, OUTLINED HERE, and is an important part of the puzzle that helps explain the corrupt original purpose of the special counsel.

The second scope memo was issued by Rod Rosenstein to Robert Mueller on October 20th, 2017.  The transparent intent of the second scope memo was to provide Weissmann and Mueller with ammunition and authority to investigate specific targets, for specific purposes.  One of those targets was General Michael Flynn’s son, Michael Flynn Jr.

As you review the highlighted portion below, found on pages 12 and 13 of the Weissmann report, read slowly and fully absorb the intent; the corruption is blood-boiling:

This second scope memo allowed Weissmann and Mueller to target tangentially related persons and entities bringing in Michael Cohen, Richard Gates, Roger Stone and Michael Flynn Jr.  Additionally and strategically (you’ll see why), this memo established the authority to pursue “jointly undertaken activity“.

With Paul Manafort outlined as an investigative target in the original authorization and the first scope memo, the second scope memo authorizes expansion to his business partner Richard Gates and their joint businesses.   This memo also permits the investigation of Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen and all of his interests; and in ultimate weasel sunlight, Rosenstein authorizes an investigation of his boss, AG Jeff Sessions.

Before getting to more targets, notice the underlined passage about starting with a lot of investigative material because the special counsel was picking up a Russian interference  investigation that had been ongoing for “nearly 10 months.”

I would also note that our CTH research indicates all of the illegally extracted FISA-702(16)(17) database search results would be part of this pre-existing investigative file available immediately to Weissmann and Mueller.  However, in order to use the search-query evidence, Weissmann and Mueller would need to backfill some alternate justification; or find another way to “rediscover” the preexisting results….. I digress

The four identified targets within the original July 2016 investigation, “Operation Crossfire Hurricane”, were George Papadopoulos, Michael Flynn, Paul Manafort and Carter Page. (See HPSCI report):

General Flynn was under investigation from the outset in mid-2016. The fraudulent FBI counterintelligence operation, established by CIA Director John Brennan, had Flynn as one of the early targets when Brennan handed the originating electronic communication “EC” to FBI Director James Comey.

The investigation of General Flynn never stopped throughout 2016 and led to the second investigative issue of his phone call with Russian Ambassador Kislyak in December 2016:

Back to the Page #12 October 20th Scope Memo:

The first redaction listed under “personal privacy” does not appear to represent an individual, rather it’s an organization. However, The second related redaction is a specific person, Michael Flynn Jr.

In combination with the October timing, the addition of Flynn Jr to the target list relates to the ongoing 2016/2017 investigation of his father, General Michael Flynn, for: (1) possible conspiracy with a foreign government; (2) unregistered lobbying; (3) materially false statements and omissions on 2017 FARA documents; and (4) lying to the FBI.

This October 20th, 2017, request from Weissmann and Mueller aligns with the time-frame were special counsel team lawyers Brandon L. Van Grack and Zainab N. Ahmad were prosecuting Michael Flynn and attempting to force him into a guilty plea

Getting Rosenstein to authorize adding Mike Flynn Jr. to the target list (scope memo) meant the special counsel could threaten General Flynn with the indictment of his son as a co-conspirator tied to the Turkish lobbying issue (which they did) if he doesn’t agree to a plea. Remember: “jointly undertaken activity“.

The October 20th, 2017, expanded scope memo authorized Mueller to start demanding records, phones, electronic devices and other evidence from Mike Flynn Jr, and provided the leverage Weissmann wanted.  After all, Mike Flynn Jr. had a four month old baby. 

The amount of twisted pressure from this corrupt team of prosecutors is sickening.  A month later, General Flynn was signing a plea agreement:

And don’t forget, Andrew McCabe was also likely the person who leaked the content of the Mike Flynn phone call between Flynn and Russian Ambassador Kislyak.  A massive leak of classified information:

Within the case against Michael Flynn…. Prosecutor Brandon Van Grack filed a cover letter attempting to explain the reason for the Flynn interview on January 24th, 2017, and the official filing of the interview notes (FD-302) on February 15th, 2017, and then again on May 31st, 2017.

To explain the FBI delay, Van Grack claimed the FD-302 report “inadvertently” had a header saying “DRAFT DOCUMENT/DELIBERATIVE MATERIAL” (screen grab)

What the special counsel appeared to be obfuscating to the court was there was factually a process of deliberation within the investigative unit, headed by FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, surrounding the specific wording of the 302 report on the Flynn interview.  Likely how best to word the FBI notes for maximum damage.

In late 2018 Prosecutor Brandon Van Grack was attempting to hide the length of the small group deliberations within the FBI. It seems he did not want the court to know Andrew McCabe was involved in shaping how the Flynn-302 was written.

We know there was a deliberative process in place, seemingly all about how to best position the narrative, because we can see the deliberations in text messages between Lisa Page and Peter Strzok: See below (note the dates):

The text message conversation above is February 14th, 2017.

The Michael Flynn FD-302 was officially entered into the record on February 15th, 2017, per the report:

Obviously the interview took place on January 24th, 2017. The FD-302 was drafted on January 24th, and then later edited, shaped, and ultimately approved by McCabe, on February 14th, then entered into the official record on February 15th.

It was a deliberative document from the outset. Thanks to the Strzok/Page text messages we know the cover letter from the Special Counsel is misleading.  The Feb 15th, 2017, date was the day after McCabe approved it.

May 17th, 2017, Robert Mueller was assigned as special Counsel. Then, the FD-302 report was re-entered on May 31st, 2017, removing the header; paving the way for Mueller’s team to use the content therein.

This level of overt corruption, and corrupt intent within the special counsel, is one of the many reasons why Rosenstein apologists and the ‘trust the plan’ crew should be collectively slapped across the face with a cold fish.  

Moving on….

♦ Another issue is reconciled today on Page #13 of the Weissmann/Mueller report surrounding why FBI Director Chris Wray asked DOJ-NSD head Dana Boente to become chief legal counsel of the FBI.

Look at the investigative structure as outlined by the Weissmann report:

Technically the 40 FBI agents remained under FBI supervision at all times.  Additionally the assigned FBI attorney worked under the FBI legal supervision; not the supervision of the special counsel.

[ie. Mueller retains plausible deniability for criminal investigative wrongdoing]

Initially in May 2017 this meant FBI chief legal counsel James Baker, part of the original small group, was coordinating the FBI roles and legal responsibilities.  However, by the end of 2017 James Baker was in trouble as congress highlighted his corrupt endeavors.

Remember what was going on in late 2017?  In addition to the FBI issues with Lisa Page and Peter Strzok surfacing internally, by December 2017, immediately after Michael Flynn signed the guilty plea… all hell broke loose.

Can you imagine an institutional idiot like FBI Director Chris Wray watching all of the information about McCabe, Strzok, Page, Kortan and Baker start erupting in the headlines and all around his office?… and simultaneously he has 40 corrupt FBI investigators attached to the corruptly organized Weissmann/Mueller detail?

That reality is exactly why Chris Wray needed to get one of the corrupt DOJ insiders to take over as FBI legal counsel.  Director Wray saw the need for massive ass-covering; and the perfect man for the job was the guy who participated in the FISA application fraud, Dana Boente.

Exactly six months later FBI Director Christopher Wray was telling a national audience there was no political bias, misconduct or corruption within the FBI; but hey, we’re going to go through bias training because we’re good enough, strong enough, and doggone it – people like us… or something.  [IG Report June 14th, 2018]

ps.  I would be remiss if I did not point out that every person identified in this outline is still in their position of authority to this day.  Including the 40 FBI agents who participated in three years of corrupt investigations of a non-existent Russia conspiracy.

But hey….

    The 2nd memo authorized the investigation of Essential Consultants for taking money from Russian backed entities. EC received money from Columbus Nova, Vekselberg and Blavatnik’s business entity. Is the SC suggesting that the owner of Warner Media and the backer of Hamilton and Empire is Russian backed? Might explain the rush to seize Cohen’s evidence. Where are the contents of Cohen’s office now? Sitting with the Wiener laptop and strozk and pages’ devices?

    If we see it. President Trump sees it in a magnitude greater than any of us can surmise. You can be certain the president’s lawyers Giuliani, Sekulow, et al and their teams have plowed through this monstrosity will a fine-tooth comb. My guess they have exculpatory evidence in most if not all the contrived allegations in case junk was really ever tested in court, or impeachment hearing.

    We must assume that the democrats are moving full speed with impeachment. As I am not a lawyer do the rules of evidence still hold? Would this stop the President from declassifying documents pertinent to the impeachment hearings?

    Though we know all of the allegations are false this simply doesn’t matter to left. If Impeachment would seal up the FISA warrants, Texts, emails etc. Be mindful of this and get the info out sooner rather than later.

    Bill Barr has a massive question to answer does he save deep state or does he save the rule of law and the USA as a whole?

    Be careful AG Barr thinking America is watching and taking note!

    As an aside I would bet the White House gets updates off of CTH. Sundance kicks tail and they know it.

        to find another job, but was willing to even briefly
        go on unemployment, if needed.

        Said female had gone through the ranks, had

        were made that she had the Polaroids of them in
        compromising positions. Went from an educational

        Complete emotional terrorist. Racist, also. Loved to
        fire non black employees more then anyone else.

        The last year that I worked there was demoted from

        problems that had never existed, 15 pounds weight

        So, yeah, I could see them doing ANYTHING to
        avoid the wrath of the gruesome twosome.

    Question: what was the LATEST date that Jeff Sessions should have put all of his family photos and office tchotchkes in a box, put on his favorite Hawaiian Shirt, marched right into The Oval, and told Trump: “I’m not doin’ you any favors.

        Actually the correct procedure would be to have an armed security escort waiting in Barr’s office when Wray walks in. At the moment he walks in, his computer accounts are locked. After dismissing Wray, he should be escorted to the exterior door after all government ID, badges, passkeys, etc. confiscated. Then his office and computer and all his government online accounts are forensically examined for any and all evidence of collusion with the coup team or any other collusion efforts which, if found, is all gathered and removed from Wrays files. His computer is secured as evidence as well as any and all paper files.

        This should be done with everyone who is dismissed for negative reasons having anything at all to do with the coup team or Mueller’s witch-hunt.

      That is why it is so significant that Barr said he’d be investigating “the predicate.” That’s the whole ball game. A predicate means a crime. There never was one. There was a counterintelligence investigation into foreign conduct, serving as cover for investigating U.S. citizens. People. But no evidence of a crime. As in — never mind probable cause connecting people to a crime, there was no underling crime.

      Andrew McCarthy pointed this out in real time. It’s a fatal flaw. Barr knows it, and it’s hugely significant that he’s already name it. Publicly.

      We’ve been dealing with Law Enforcement heads acting like PR specialists. Using sensationalism, obfuscation, sloppy and slippery language designed to provoke and insinuate. Barr’s the opposite. He speaks precisely — legalistically — and that term flew over the media’s head, but it’s lethal.

    “[Flynn] He was trying to reach out to several Republican candidates and latched onto Trump – and the rest was history.” James Clapper

    In August 2015 Flynn began briefing Donald Trump ahead of the debates.
    But long before General Flynn became a gleam in the eye of any presidential candidate, while he was still head of DIA, Obama and company’s animus for him
    metastasized. He became persona non grata on the administration’s foreign policy.
    The spying on the Trump campaign/transition likely had its genesis from such animus.

    In February 2014, General Flynn, while he ran military Intel for Obama, was invited to a seminar and dinner at [Stefan Halper’s] Cambridge, where he was seated across from Svetlana Lokhova who was a British citizen–ethnic Russian–and graduate student there.

    “What Halper staged is a textbook ‘black-op’ to dirty up the reputation of a political opponent. He needed an innocuous social event to place Flynn in a room with a woman who was ethnically Russian. I was unlucky he picked me,” Lokhova told TheDCNF.” The Daily Caller. Two months after the 2014 Cambridge dinner, Flynn was forced to resign as DIA head.

    Similar ‘black op’ entrapments carried through through May, June, and July 2016. George Pappadoupolus, Sam Clovis, Carter Page, Michael Caputo, and Donald Trump Jr. were probed with similar lures, most by dangling Hillary Clinton’s emails and all signaling some kind of Russian connection.

    Flynn was invited to a ‘Russia Today’ anniversary dinner in Moscow December 2015. He was paid to speak, and was seated in the honored chair next to Vladimir Putin. Also seated at the table was Green Party presidential candidate, Jill Stein–another potential election problem for Hillary Clinton and the DNC. Stein, like Donald Trump, formally announced her candidacy in June 2015. She also would be investigated later by the Senate Intelligence Committee for Russia collusion.

    “First we f’^k Flynn, then we f’^k Trump.” Reportedly said by Andrew McCabe, in an FBI morning briefing in January 2016.

    Jan/Feb 2016 may be the earliest instance yet of ‘hands on’ CIA/FBI manipulation in the Russia/Trump frame up. It is revealed in the recent interview of Svetlana Lokhova by Catherine Herridge of Fox News.

    In Lokhova’s interview with Catherine Herridge she claims that Stefan Halper was trying to set up General Flynn who had been a problem for Obama and his inner circle. Halper, through a surrogate, invited her [January 12, 2016] to a private dinner at his home, in February 2016, just after it became public knowledge that Flynn would be advising Donald Trump.

        That Carter Page was trying to get Trump to speak in Moscow two months before he is announced as a Trump adviser troubles me, because General Flynn, I believe was snookered into speaking and sitting next to Putin a month earlier.

        Jump to the Mueller report about Carter Page [page 97-100]. b. Origins and early campaign work’.

        Page pushed to be on the Trump team through Ed Cox in December 2015. According to the Report, he was emailing the Trump campaign trying to have Candidate Trump give a Moscow speech and possibly meet with Putin? as early as January 2016, before he was announced as an adviser in March.

        The Report says, Page again tried in May, then again in June 2016, to get Trump to speak in Moscow? as he requested permission from the campaign to make his own speech in Russia. The Mueller Report never refers to Page as once being an FBI UCE-1 informant, although they briefly discuss the earlier Russian spy case–noting him as Male-1.

        It is on June 7, 2016 that Page received his own Cambridge invite by email [directly or indirectly] from Stefan Halper who’s name is never mentioned or is redacted in the Mueller Report. The Cambridge conference came right after Page’s trek to Moscow. The content of the invite email suggests prior contact between the two.

        Page redacted the name of the email invite sender and told John Solomon that the invite came from a graduate student at Cambridge. However, the language in the invitation suggests a more mature sender who had corresponded with Page before. Lokhova was a graduate student at Cambridge. Was it her or was it Halper? Or was Halper using her address to make the invite?

    Palace coups require a ruthless response without the niceties of the rule-of-law. Think Pinochet, Mubarak, Franco, Erdogan, and Castro.

    The Constitution of the United States of America does not account for palace coups, the suspension of the rule of law and other such foundational principles. Nor should it. We have an “ordered” system of government and we are confronted full-on with whether we can ” keep it.”

    Limited government and the wide latitude of protecting free will is an ocean away from what the DemonizingRats are trying to create.

    The DemonizingRats are consumed with state imposed political correctness, state imposed “equality” and state imposed codes of obedience.

    We do not have the choice of “whether” we follow the rules. Dreams of martial law are just that: dreams.

    Attorney General Barr is our current best hope. He will use FBI Director Christopher Wray to stand with him and assist him. That is the structure. Christopher Wray will have to decide if he is strong enough and clever enough to rip AG Barr a new one and, thereby, corrupt AG Barr. If Christopher Wray is the hyena I suspect he is, it is in his best interests to have an epiphany and work like a dynamo to help AG Barr. Soon enough every hyena in the pack will start turning on their weaker mates in order to appear the better hyena.

    Take a good hard look at how the DemonizingRats are handling their house of cards. Nadler and Schiff are taking one direction, Pelosi and Hoyer are testing out the tall grass and the clown car of 2020 presidential nomination candidates are using an incredible variety of bait on the party faithful. The DemonizingRats are in mass disarray and either protecting their flanks or denying that they ever had any knowledge or participation in the attempted coup. Forget their faithful. Those people would vote for an AOC and Adam Shiff ticket in a heartbeat because: Demonizingrat.

    President Donald J. Trump and all of us supporters have this albatross of scurrilous hate around our necks through 2020 and beyond. Like Benghazi, Lois Lerner, and other DemonizingRat games and cover-ups, we will look for “check-mate” and find ourselves repeatedly frustrated. That does not mean that AG Barr will not have considerable successes. It means the DemonizingRats are masters at popping up out of the embers and ashes and saying they were at the beach when the fire occurred.

    I will stick with AG Barr until I have substantial cause to doubt him. That means I believe he can take the hand he has been dealt and play it brilliantly. After all, he has the deck and can choose what ever cards he needs the most for any particular moment in the game.

    What strikes me is the title of the Report Written on the Cover Page. There was no investigation of Russian Interference in the 2016 Election. Rosenstein had written the original SC charter to the point that he actually appointed a new SC, without authority to do so. Manafort actually was on the right trail to challenge Mueller’s authority but he failed to mention Rosenstein’s illegal role once Mueller was forced to expose the secret orders. This is the major failing, purposely or by incompetence, of Sessions as recusal did not include ethical and legal oversight of Rosenstein as the AG.

    The report title should read, General Investigation of President Trump and Trump Campaign.

    Note, this report still does not list the secret “Verbal Orders” mentioned by Mueller in his brief to the Judge in the Manafort case.

      More fundamentally, how can any jury trust anything from the DOJ/FBI?
      Citizen jury members may have a duty to refuse any conviction based on any FBI evidence until the DOJ and FBI are cleaned out by indictment of all liars, leakers, treasonists and coup-enablers, and then restored to respectability by appointment of honest people.

    So, Rosenstein, via his “secret orders”, rewrote the SC Charter to the point that he as DAG appointed a new SC. That is not within his authority and Mueller’s gang was not only biased, wrong, unethical, etc. but they were an illegitimate organizations illegally constituted.

    “What we are going to be looking at is we’re going to be looking at all the counter-intelligence findings that were the genesis of this investigation,” Schiff said. “We have requested that on a bipartisan basis, one of the things that Devin Nunes and I agreed upon,” he said, referring to the GOP House Intelligence Committee ranking member.

    Schiff went on to say he believed the origins of the probe were justified.

      Do the members of Congress (to include Schiff) have the authority to hide (claim that it can not be released because of the investigation) all the evidents again (e.g.,SC Investigation) because of any investigation brought forward by them?

      Is this an effort to derail, locating and prosecuting the conspirators?

    If I were Flynn’s son I’d be filing a civil lawsuit, and then I’d put every single agent’s name on the lawsuit asserting corruption and abuse of authority. This is absolutely sickening, Wray should be dragged out of office by a team of US Marshals.

    Somewhere I read the NSA databases had been abused for FIVE YEARS?

    What does that mean? NSA databases used against … MITTENS ROMNEY?

    Sundance you are a genius at figuring all of these details and weaving them together in a cohesive pattern for us to understand. I can’t wait for my daily fix. But one little thing that I don’t understand, there are 2 names redacted on the 2nd scope memo from Rosenstein. You surmise that the second name is Michael Flynn, JR. which makes perfect sense. But why do you think the first one is a company and not an individual? The others on the list are all individuals and it would look odd to have a company listed amongst named individuals. Is it possible it’s another name?

    It’s a pattern that they just keep pushing the NSA fixes down the road and reauthorizing it repeatedly. Like so many other problems our country faces and has faced for decades.

    The Romney stunt, was to give him an opening to challenge Trump for the nomination with coordinated press outrage over the weekend.

    Too bad the news lost all credibility with Russia, Russia and more Russia…. and now Mueller found nothing of real substance. Now the spying is going to come out after IG report and declassification. One last push and then it’s predictably back to Charlottesville, racism, sexism, white nationalism etc…. I think it’s another losing proposition. They really have no new ideas and even will lose green new deal to next gen nuclear.

      I expect, the so called Obstruction to be the next call for investigation before the IG Report is released in 6 weeks. They really, want their conspiracy to be covered up. So why not lock up all of the information in another fake investigation after all it work for the SC.

        I hope President Trump beats them to the punch so they can’t yell “obstruction”, or “we can’t reveal anything about an ongoing investigation.” Grrrrr……SPIT!

      The Romney thing was so lame, it’s like they forgot to tell him the deal was off and so he went out there in his bizarre attempt to insert himself into presidential politics again.

      What a loser. It’s like they put a” kick me” sign on his back and sent him onto the playground.

    It becomes more and more clear that the collusion, obstruction and corruption was seated within the Mueller investigation itself. These criminals, and yes I mean CRIMINALS, should not be allowed to skate away from their attempt to overthrow a legally elected President. We have been and still are watching an attempted coup that was originally instigated within the Obama Administration, very likely at the direction of Obama himself. Almost all of his top people seem to have been, at least somewhat, involved. Hillary made it happen with the phony dossier while Obama lackeys worked the system to aid and abet the bringing of charges and setting traps, as well as threats of jail and the destruction of numerous family members of those they “said” were involved. Brennan and Clapper helped to keep the lap dog media in a raging uproar with their lies and innuendo. Comey displayed his culpability early on, going so far as to leak (for all the world to see) information he had no right to release. What a cast of characters! What a group of criminals! When can we see them in prison uniforms?? If lying, falsifying information, leaking classified information, ignoring legal judicial and investigative behavior, blackmail, and criminal action aren’t enough to put them in jail then what the he!! is?

      Mueller is a professional legal assassin. When he gets a contract for a hit, he usually delivers. He’s been doing this starting when he worked for Bill Weld in Boston. They went after their political enemies.

      Weld is the Nevertump party nominee for the 2020 election.

      Mueller framed an innocent man for the anthrax attack, with the media’s help and then tried to cover it up for years. The man was eventually exonerated, paid for his suffering, and the media put out retractions.

    There seems to be a complete lack of self-awareness in documenting the sequential development of their plans – lack of self-awareness in that it never occurred to them that eyes reading these could make deductions (in the out-months/years) about their intentions and efforts.

    So much like a three year old who puts their hands over their eyes and chortles, “You can’t see me!”

    Degenerates like these are actual capable of and guilty of far worse things that onlookers would have thought to accuse them of.

    The details in this report almost seem to confirm the old saw about the criminal returning to the scene of the crime. Their self-revelation documents and clarifies exactly what they were doing. They are too clever by half, perhaps. Remains to be seen if they will get burned the way they ought to be burned. For the sake of the Republic, may they be extremely burned.

    This to me proves Sessions was compromised.

    “and in ultimate weasel sunlight, Rosenstein authorizes an investigation of his boss, AG Jeff Sessions.”
    The FBI started investigating Sessions for lying to congress, “before” the SC was started.

    When you look at all the lying to congress that was never investigated it is clear this was BS concocted to “investigate” Sessions. They must have found something they could use to blackmail Sessions. Sessions was not only AWOL through out the witch hunt, he also helped screw congress, when they were trying to expose the corrupt Awan “investigation/prosecution.”
