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?

      Considering the scope, breadth and duration of illegal domestic (political) spying and sedition that the bad guys are trying to cover up, there is no sense in rushing it.

      May I suggest looking at how AG Barr answers certain questions during his hearings in congress next week? If he declines due to “on-going criminal investigations”, we’ll all be waiting a bit longer.

          I agree, there is never plenty of time for something as complex as this scam.

          For the sake of argument, if there was sufficient voter fraud (and any other factors) to cause a “dem” to be elected in 2020 the official truth seeking ends and the coup perps skate. All of them. All the known and subsurface criminal activity by the obama/clinton/DS will be buried.

          The Left is digging in, they now reject the mueller report and are tying to maintain momentum. They will NEVER admit the obvious corruption and will do whatever it takes to protect the obama admin. This is all they have. They have no other viable options.

          Better to start pounding them now, gain the initiative and spoon feed the facts to the citizens before the dem obstruction seed takes hold.

          I tend to agree, and I will add that as more and more dirt is slung at Trump, it will be easier for the media to position the investigations of the coup as retaliation.

          If there is truly no way yet to “release the Kraken” because of ongoing investigations, I suggest President Trump needs to begin dropping hints about what is coming. He has to be careful not to do anything that would compromise a case, but he can use words that communicate the gravity of the situation to the people. He can also use key words that let the black hats know that he knows a lot! Don’t ask me what those words are – it’s a strategy! Maybe he is even following it already, but it seems like tweets are starting to lose their impact, and other channels have to be explored to trick the media into passing along the message.

              1. Dems will claim obstruction no matter what Trump does or does not due.
              2. Who is advising Trump not to declassify and release documents he is sitting on
              3. Why doesn’t any of trumps people point out if congress is a coequel branch to the executive then all members need to release their taxes not just the president. Congress legislative duties could be corrupted by outside sources. Each member needs to release all financial information including their taxes so as to show decisions are made in the interest of the America people and not to line Congress’s pockets. What’s good for the goose is good for the gander.

      +1. I’ve been unable to find any info as to statute limitations here. And there’s a volume of them which have been violated. One of them, to BEGIN with is Lurch Mueller, Rhee, Weissmann, Quarles, et al, & Co. “investigation” predicate was, and is, ILLEGAL. The veritable volume of violations actually obscures this: VIOLATION of U.S. 28 CFR 600.7 CONDUCT AND ACCOUNTABILITY and 28 CFR 45.2(c)(2) Government Ethics Outline Sec.II(c) derives its definition of a “personal or political relationship” (Re: Co-me, Mueller, Rosenstein): “No DOJ employee may participate in a criminal investigation or prosecution if he has a PERSONAL OR POLITICAL RELATIONSHIP with any person or organization substantially involved in the conduct THAT IS THE SUBJECT OF THE INVESTIGATION OR PROSECUTION OR WHO WOULD BE DIRECTLY AFFECTED BY THE OUTCOME.” Remember it?

      Sec. II(c) derives its definition of a “PERSONAL OR POLITICAL RELATIONSHIP” from 28 CFR 45.2(c)(2). Ref: https://www.justice.gov/jmd/government-ethics-outline. Personal relationship aka substantial connection of the type normally viewed as likely to induce partiality. An employee is presumed to have a personal relationship with his father, mother, brother, sister, child and spouse. Whether relationships (including friendships) of an employee to other persons or organizations are “personal” must be judged on an individual basis with due regard given to the subjective opinion of the employee. THINK Weissmann, Rhee,,,,, et al. PERIOD.

      If it is the three words starting on the third line of p. 83, the redaction marks seem much too long to obscure those words. I am assuming that word length and spacing is “true” to the original, but I don’t know if that has been established. Seems like a risk if it is.

      I think he felt it better to not do much while the Mueller investigation was going on. He obviously wanted to fight back hard but his advisors told him not to. They told him if he did anything, it would be construed as obstruction which was their whole gambit since they knew collusion was a false story.

      And that is exactly how it is playing out. Now I think he is free to fight back but needs carefully construct his attack. There is the Huber investigation, the IG investigation, criminal referrals by Nunes, Senate Intelligence Committee investigations, and the AG doing investigations. Not to mention the Mueller report is still sucking up all the air in the news cycle. Shooting a gun off might not be heard right now.

      I hope his instinct, his willingness to fight, and his advisors being strategic will get all of this out there in time to impact the 2020 election in his favor.

    “After discussing Donald Trump’s presidency, his style and detractors, Gallups said that Trump “holds the keys to the foundational crime of the birth certificate — fake documentation of a fake guy running our military and our world, and they were hoping Hillary Clinton would come right behind him and clean it all up…””

    Comey has publicly admitted to leaking classified government documents to the press via his accomplice Daniel Richman. This is a Class I felony and the FBI should have arrested both of them shortly after the admission and charged them with this crime. That the FBI did not do so is evidence of complicity by the FBI is this ongoing criminality, and public trust in this seminal law enforcement institution will continue to decline until Barr cleans house and appoints a new FBI Director who will perform his sworn duty to uphold the law. With each passing day, it is becoming more clear that Comey corrupted the FBI into becoming a weaponized tool of politics and oversaw a criminal enterprise of staggering illegality and destructiveness. The people of this country deserve better than this.

    Richman is just the tippy top of a very deep Iceberg. There are 100’s of similar contractors who are likely listed in Admiral Rogers’ report on FISC 702 abuses. If he badge and others access, there is no limit to the amount of classified materials they took away from the terminals as well as buildings where they accessed data bases. Combined with Hillary’s server, shows the enemy and our friends lived inside the US INTEL data bases for 8+ years. There is more than a coup attempt vs President Trump at stake here folks. Another bullet point note under Hillary’s, “if he is elected we all will hang”.


    • thedoc00 says:

      Consider that as the Originating Authority for all things classified and clearances, per Federal Codes, Obama would have delegated authority to legitimize as well as make legal every clearance granted to these contractors. There are need to know and request documents that have to exist as well as logs as to what was accessed and/or removed. Then again, classified data destruction could have occurred and nobody would ever know what was destroyed except for a title of the data destroyed.

      We had an Islamic activist and communist as an Intel Director.
      We had an Iranian agent as chief advisor to an Islamic President.
      We had a power hungry Secretary of State seeking riches as well as the office of President.
      We have a consolidate media, focused on supporting a single world government and economy.
      We have political parties focused on doing the bidding of the directors of the one world economy directors.

    Just an early morning thought, but what if Richman is the one telling Comey what to do and not the other way around. Who gives their friend memos and asks them to leak them knowing the legal issues it would put them in? What if it is Richman demanding the memos be written and leaked rather than Comey asking Richman to do it. Perhaps Comey, not being brain dead, refused to do the leaking. How much do we know about this Richman guy? We do know that Loretta Lynch told Comey to call it a “matter” rather than him coming up with that idea on his own. Maybe Comey was told from above to accommodate Richman rather than Comey bringing him in on his own.

      And while I’m at it, there was some talk about Lisa Page and Richman looking like Iranian agents. So … wandering down the speculation trail …something else that isn’t sitting quite right in my mind are the texts between Strzok and Page. They seem like intentional communication of dates, times and people in the room. I initially wondered if perhaps Strzok (or Page) was a white hat recording events and conversations in real time. But, ummm….don’t think either is a white hat.

      Could it be that the texts between Strzok and Page are purposeful communication between the DOJ and the FBI? Sort of like Nellie’s ham radio? Or do I just need to go to bed?
