James Comey’s Unpaid “Special Government Employee” Daniel Richman…

When considering who were the FBI contractors, with special program access to the NSA database, conducting unauthorized searches and extracting results… there’s a specific type of contractor described by FISA Judge Rosemary Collyer.  One who was able to work around the security protocols: [Page 21] “systems …. that do not interface with NSA’s query audit system“.

In 2018 congressman Jim Jordan made mention of an issue where James Comey had a special employee on assignment ‘off-the-books’.  People started asking questions and 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)

Wait, 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?

      Exactly, Steph. “Amazing” has become overused to the max but nevertheless, I am in fact amazed by Sundance’s consistently brilliant research, reporting, and ability to tie things together. And it’s all based on facts – imagine that!

      Not difficult at all to imagine that many, many people in very high places keep tabs on the latest at the Treehouse. Are we fortunate or what?!

      We must now include Simpson, Jacoby, and Richman in the small group. They were spying and needed to cover that. Richman leaked because he was part of the team and needed the SC to cover his tracks.

      The day after they got busted for spying, Jacoby went to the WH. We need to ask where Simpson and Richman were on that day… Who did they meet with?

        From Sundance’s 702 entry earlier today:

        “While the audit was ongoing, due to the severity of the results that were identified, Admiral Mike Rogers stopped anyone from using the 702(17) “about query” option, and went to the extraordinary step of blocking all FBI contractor access to the database on April 18, 2016 (keep these dates in mind).”

        From the Page 84 above: “FBI discontinued the above described access…as of April 18, 2016.”

    If Richman is a “special government employee” with top security clearance and NSA Database access, he surely has secrecy contracts on file, with “warnings” about keeping information secure, periodic briefings, certifications, etc. Leaking comey memos, misusing NSA Databases for personal searches (on behalf of comey “special projects”) perhaps outside of the FISA requirements, could be a very big problem fer the perfesser.
    On the other hand, Hillary had such agreements, “warnings”, training, certifications and and criminal non-disclosure laws for classified materials, and had no consequences for losing all her records to the Chinese, and weiner’s non-secret pervert laptop.

      IIRC, when they checked with the State Dept, the Dept. was unable to provide signed documents, confirming that Hillary, or any of her crew had been through such training.

      Obviously, She and Cheryl Mills, Huma etc. should have recieved Security briefings, detailing their responsibilities in handling classified info, and would have signed a statement, acknowledging their responsibilities, which would have been a key piece of evidence in any prosecution, because it pre-emptively addresses a defence of “I didn’t know!”

      And SOMEHOW (Sandy Burger), the signed documents were MISSING from their files!

      Which is perhaps why she,was so confident she wouldn’t be charged.
      Because without those documents,…

      “NO reasonable Prosecutor would indict”, BECAUSE the Defendant, before a JURY, can plead ignorance.

      Which is WHY they have people with Classified clearance recieve the breifing, and SIGN that they understand.

    This “special ‘I’m so clean on one end t*rd” agent is the “go between” with the media while Comey was in office, and briefly afterward by design… What a putz… lock ’em in irons and roll they overboard!
    Question:
    Every once in awhile, while looking at these redacted blocks of black……I seem to “see” a difference imbedded within them….like a “line of text” that reflected the light used when they were being scanned into a digital file…it’s not differentiated enough to make out words…. BUT, if someone that understands digital imaging might invest some time and turn up some very interesting info buried in plain sight…. Check-6

    The other day, I wrote some interesting stuff about my understanding of databases. I cited several resources that I am using to make my observations. They are not lightweight reading, they are definitive.

    A database is a collection of records built on fields that contain the raw data that can be logically associated with the Field_Lable. Example: a field lable called Telephone_Number would be illogical to store a name.

    Now, in the coarse of my writing, much was made about the 702 about queries. That they are stored procedures. That all fine and dandy, a search proceedure that limits or confines, “How the database is accessed and the scope of what is returned as a result.”

    Yet, here we are presented with techno mumbo-jumbo alluding to individuals with special access to the NSA database without a full understanding of what that may mean!!!

    If these special access folks just used the stored search queries, then much of what they could do is just limited to the function of the stored queries.

    Nothing can be further from the truth.

    There is nothing stopping a person from executing their own database SQL commands and sending them to the server.
    Specifically, if they had full access to the DML and DDL API of the database server.
    In SQL the command syntax that searches a database uses the DML SELECT command to find records that match the criteria.

    When you stop to think through what a SQL Command is, and the amount of code required to send that command to a database server, it is not impossible to question whether these individuals had the ability to send DML(Data Manipulation Language) commands to the server. Things like INSERT, DELETE and UPDATE. The same goes with the understanding of DDL (Data Defination Language) commands.

    I am not saying, “The bread crumb trail” of what was occuring did not have a fail safe in how the database may have been altered.
    What I am saying is the database is so massive, that down stream, say the FBI using legitimate access would never question nor consult the administrative log that would show the records they where using as evidence may have been tainted by criminal activities.

    Goes along way to explaining, why the Mueller FBI/DOJ report is so heavily weighted with political optics and scant hard real evidence. The evidence used to get the FISA was fabricated and inserted into the database.

    Mr. Rogers audit took that evidence away. That is what is being hidden by the preservation interests of the insituitions.

      Now, consider that the Government is asserting that Russia did in fact engauge in efforts to influence the election. An interference wrapped up in slime antidotal of social media meme and advertising. That may be just cover for what I am saying, “They do have their hands on the likes of Snowden”
      Yet, that is neither, here nor there.
      The name of the game was collusion, now if these corrupt players within the deep state know that the evidence was fabricated, “What does that say about collusion, if the Russia interference is to be believed on one hand versus the the dirty laundry fact it was all just an inside job used for a political agenda.”

      Could it now be safely stated, “To cover their criminal activities, they weaponized a cover story that sets the US and Russia at odds by using the base emotional fear akin to Red Scare tactics hide behind.”

    You said:

    Problem is, PadaD says his contact with Thompson on 5/6 was by email!
    18:45 is where the Aussies enter the picture:21:34 is where he says email.

    I am doubting PapaD told ANYONE about “dirt”. They handed PapaD the “dirt” football and wanted him to pass it to Trump.

        And Italy. GP was directed to the CIA/FBI spook school Link Campus in Rome, where he was first introduced to Mifsud. Recall it was Mifsud who claimed to have serious connections with the Kremlin that he could link GP up with in furtherance of GP’s role as Trump campaign advisor, and it was Mifsud who, a short time later in London, would tell GP that the Russians had Hillary’s emails.

        George goes on to elaborate on how the erstwhile incognito Mifsud has recently been rediscovered in Rome under an assumed name and how he expects Mifsud’s Italian protectors to flip.

      It hit me as he was talking about the Aussie interference that The Kenyan made a very last minute deal with the Aussies to take alleged criminal “refugees” off their hands.

      I just tho’t it was always just another crappy knife he put in President’s TRUMP’s back, but now I think it might be more that. It was also a payback to the Aussies for deeds done. Quid Pro Quo.

    Even with the Second Amendment, the Founding Fathers didn’t want a standing army as they feared it would only be a matter of time before it would be turned on the American People as had been the case in many countries. Turns out that standing army is spelled F B I.

    When a government wishes to deprive its citizens of freedom, and reduce them to slavery, it generally makes use of a standing army.
    – Luther Martin, Maryland delegate to the Constitutional Convention

    A standing army is one of the greatest mischief that can possibly happen. Without standing armies liberty can never be in danger, nor with large ones safe
    -James Madison

    There are instruments so dangerous to the rights of the nation, and which place them so totally at the mercy of their governors, that those governors, whether legislative or executive, should be restrained from keeping such instruments on foot, but in well-defined cases. Such an instrument is a standing army.
    – Thomas Jefferson

    In the days following the American Revolution, Jefferson became increasingly concerned about two tendencies he believed were intrinsically connected: the concentration of power in a centralized government, and the establishment of a career class standing army.

    If one substitutes National Police Force (FBI) for standing army, their concerns have already been proven correct.

    The FBI has committed so much war on the Republic that, like the Nazis and ISIS, it should be utterly destroyed.

    “One who was able to work around the security protocols: [Page 21] “systems …. that do not interface with NSA’s query audit system“.”

    So the FBI had unauthorized contractors using database access with no audit trail ? So there isn’t a definitive record of who looked at what and when ?

    Sounds completely legitimate and above board.

    I think much of what is blacked out in this legal ruling should be declassified. Why are the identities of the contractors concealed ? What is the “National Security” basis for concealing the number of out-of-scope transactions ?

    More of this legal ruling should be on Trump’s declassification list.

    Im putting this here bc the presidential thread isn’t up yet.

    Just came across this lawsuit (filed last month) by Ed Butowski—the guy who paid for Seth Rich’s parents’ first private investigator. He’s suing CNN, Anderson Cooper, NYT, and all kinds of other people for defamation. He originally hired Rod Wheeler-the PI who gave FNC the inside scoop on Seth Rich but then sued FNC, saying he was misquoted. Suit was dropped as was the parents’ case against FOX.

    Interesting details about why Wheeler retracted. Butowski claims that SR’s parents both admitted (to HIM) that both of their sons gave the emails to Wikileaks. Other people got to them.

    Hope this lawsuit goes somewhere —we need one of these cases to be subject to discovery.

    If this guy was soooo important to have around and got a top clearance and an access badge then why is he not on the payroll. Were any back ground checks done on this guy prior to getting clearances and an access badge? Not being on an official payroll would keep him and whatever he was doing unknown and without oversight or supervision from others employed there except Comey. Is there even a personnel file on this guy in the HR dept? Someone needs to look into this.

    How about this theory: When Edward Snowden scooped up all the NSA files (PRISM or whatever they said he had) the FBI realized after-the-fact that he also had access to FBI FISA material, including whatever Strzok was investigating prior to MYE and Crossfire Hurricane (Justice Roberts?). Dennis Montgomery alleged he had the same info among his terrabytes of data, but it probably takes a state actor (Russia or China) to extract it in useful form. Rather than admit more gross negligence (extreme carelessness if you prefer) the FBI had to create the appearance that Russia’s hacking operations were the real threat, not a poorly vetted contractor who just handed the stuff over. I think we could overlay Snowden’s story over the redactions and we’d find that it fits. Imagine their frustration, while they were trying to keep the lid on this, when Hillary’s cartoonish cyber-security practices surfaced during the Benghazi hearings.

    More seriously — swamp people don’t do anything for free. There’s always an angle. So, if Richman wasn’t technically getting paid by the FBI, then perhaps the compensation was going the other way. The IG found that there were FBI employees accepting favors, etc. from the media. Could Richman have been a pass-through for favors to Comey?
