Chaff and Countermeasures – The DC Outrage Traps…

Yesterday Senators Johnson and Grassley opened the door for the DOJ and FBI to justify the post-election investigation of President Donald Trump, based on a premise of a possible FBI counterintelligence operation ran against the office of the Vice-President, Mike Pence. And lickety-split the outrage voices jumped right to work. Predictable.

Discussions, conversations and displays of evidence outlining the efforts of the intelligence community, to defend against the potential of a compromised President, are exactly what the previous administration officials want to see.  This is the conversation President Obama, Susan Rice, Ben Rhodes and Denis McDonough would be happy to discuss.

Think of the worst or most shocking possibility you can imagine for what might have taken place.  Wiretaps on the White House? Enlisted assistance from staffers? Bugs placed in the cufflinks of Donald Trump?  So what?  From their position all of these efforts were undertaken because they were dealing with the possibility of a U.S. President who might be under the control of a foreign government.  This is the conversation they would enjoy.

From their by-the-book perspective the officials who ran the counterintelligence operation against President Trump have no fear of discussions about what they did in their post-election defense of the constitution (that’s how they will sell it). No fear.

Discussions of seemingly outrageous activity, via lots of blockbuster revelation, is in their interest.  All of their actions easily justified from the standpoint of a possibility the inbound President was compromised.  “We were riddled with anxiety”, they say.

There’s no risk to them in discussing their action, any action, undertaken from the basis of their premise.  Recruiting incoming administration people to conduct surveillance and report back to the FBI? Justified under this premise.  There is no upper limit.

Again, think of the most shocking revelation you can possibly imagine, none of it concerns them so long as they can justify it from their pre-constructed premise that Trump was a Russian asset.  For this premise, there is no rule book. Everything is ‘by-the-book‘ because there is no book.  It’s the perfect Alinsky play.

The participating officials within the DOJ, FBI or intelligence apparatus simply reference the possibility of President Trump as a Russian asset and every jaw-dropping headline reaches a crescendo only to fizzle into the ether of nothingness when an official says: “Yeah, so what?”

This is exactly what those officials want to see happen as they tell the story of their unprecedented heroic efforts to ensure all angles of possibility were covered.

These participating officials would like nothing more than a dozen congressional hearings where they can explain to the viewing public how honorable they were in trying to deal with the possibility of such an unprecedented threat… Oh, how the summer of headlines will be gleefully cheered by the adoring media.  You think this conversation worries the participants?  Not a smidgen.

The entire time all of these blockbuster outrages are being debated and analyzed in granular detail, you know what’s not being discussed?… The originating predicate.

Discussing the consequences, regardless of how ‘shocking‘, or ‘jaw-dropping‘, or ‘unimaginable‘, plays right into the hands of the participating members of the fraud and scheme.  These are discoveries they welcome. These are discoveries to be planted.  This is where they want the focus. This is Chaff and Countermeasures.

What they don’t want to discuss is the origination of ‘Crossfire Hurricane’ in July 2016.  What they don’t want to discuss is Fusion-GPS and the creation of the Steele Dossier.  What they don’t want to discuss is how the fraudulent premise was established.

What they don’t want to discuss is the exploitation of the NSA database for political surveillance. That’s what they don’t want to discuss… And every time attention starts to head in that direction, they’ll throw out another entirely justifiable headline-grabbing detail of their post election activity.

Shiny things; like the wife of Pence’s chief-of-staff worked with Peter Strzok.

Must be urgent, right?

[…] Fox News has learned the texts, initially released in 2018 by a Senate committee, are under renewed scrutiny, with GOP Sens. Chuck Grassley and Homeland Security Committee chair Ron Johnson sending a letter Thursday night to Attorney General Bill Barr pushing for more information on the matter.

Oh, wait, so they sat on them because?…..

Chaff and Countermeasures.

This is how the DC game is played.  Senators Johnson and Grassley laid the first shiny distraction on the table; and based on the responses, boy howdy, does the outrage game work well.  Inquiry immediately follows the distraction.

Oh, how quickly we forget our references for this DC strategy:

Where’s the Graham-Grassley letter to Gina Haspel?

Dear Director Haspel: “Hey, so, CIA, how’d Crossfire Hurricane start? What did you get through the Counterintelligence Mission Center?  Can you spare a few minutes to note the contacts from  GCHQ, and that meeting between Robert Hannigan and John Brennan?”

Huh, funny that.

Where’s the Burr-Warner letter to Paul Nakasone?

Dear Gen. Nakasone: “Can you provide us a little more information about why the NSA dropped database “about queries”?  Maybe outline the contractors that were of such concern they had to be restricted from access…. and, oh, their current status?”

Too soon? Three years.

The outrage trap must be avoided….

The issue(s) surround President Obama and high-ranking Obama intelligence officials, notably: John Brennan, James Comey, James Clapper and Sally Yates intentionally lying and/or misrepresenting issues to president-elect Donald Trump and the transition team in/around the transition period and after the January 20, 2017, inauguration.

Some of the misinformation stems from intelligence officials telling direct lies (ex. telling President-elect, and President Trump he was not under investigation). Other aspects were lies of omission surrounding the Steele Dossier during the January 6th, 2017, intelligence briefing session with the President-elect in Trump Tower.

In essence, there were many misleading and false statements, with varying scales of severity, during the period from November 9th, 2016, through mid-May 2017 when President Trump fired FBI Director James Comey.

James Comey wrote all about the unorthodox investigative methods they were forced to use in unseen memos currently withheld…. awaiting shiny thing timing:

(FBI Declarations about Comey Memos)

The FBI, DOJ, ODNI, CIA and intelligence officials were intentionally not being direct and honest with President Trump and key members of his new administration. Obviously their lack of honesty was a serious issue, and in some cases had serious ramifications.

The expressed finding by Robert Mueller’s two-year probe of ‘no Trump-Russia collusion, no Trump-Russia conspiracy, and no Trump-Russia obstruction’ has led to some hindsight reviews where anger surfaces about the now visible deception.  However, there is a trap laid here and Democrats are hoping outraged voices will walk straight into it. Some are already getting very close.

At 12:15pm on January 20th, 2017, Obama’s outgoing National Security Advisor Susan Rice wrote a memo-to-self. Many people have called this her “CYA” (cover your ass) memo, from the position that Susan Rice was protecting herself from consequences if the scheme against President Trump was discovered. Here’s the email:

On January 5, following a briefing by IC leadership on Russian hacking during the 2016 Presidential election, President Obama had a brief follow-on conversation with FBI Director Jim Corney and Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates in the Oval Office. Vice President Biden and I were also present.

President Obama began the conversation by stressing his continued commitment to ensuring that every aspect of this issue is handled by the Intelligence and law enforcement communities “by the book“.

The President stressed that he is not asking about, initiating or instructing anything from a law enforcement perspective. He reiterated that our law enforcement team needs to proceed as it normally would by the book.

From a national security perspective, however, President Obama said he wants to be sure that, as we engage with the incoming team, we are mindful to ascertain if there is any reason that we cannot share information fully as it relates to Russia.

[Redacted Classified Section of Unknown length]

The President asked Corney to inform him if anything changes in the next few weeks that should affect how we share classified information with the incoming team. Corney said he would.

Susan Rice ~ (pdf link)

As stated, many have looked at this as a “CYA” memo, but that’s not what this is.

This is a justification memo, written by an outgoing National Security Advisor Susan Rice to document why there have been multiple false and misleading statements given to the incoming President Trump and all of his officials.

This is not a “CYA” memo, this is a justification memo for use AFTER the Trump-Russia collusion/conspiracy narrative collapsed; if the impeachment effort failed.

The “By The Book” aspect refers to President Obama and Susan Rice being told by CIA Director John Brennan, FBI Director James Comey, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, and Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, that President Trump was the subject of an active counterintelligence investigation to determine if he was under the influence of the Russian government.

Even the timing of the memo, written 15 minutes prior to the end of the Obama administration, is ex-post-facto useful as evidence of the author’s intent.

Put aside the nonsense aspect to the origination of the investigation for a moment; that part doesn’t apply here…. Accept their position ‘as if’ it is substantive.

We are talking about Brennan, Comey, Clapper and Yates telling President Obama and NSA Susan Rice that President-elect Trump is under a counterintelligence investigation where the suspicion is that Donald J Trump is an agent of a foreign power.

Under that auspices (fraudulent though it may be) the incoming President is a counterintelligence investigation target. A potentially compromised Russian asset. Under this auspices all of the officials would be permitted to lie and mislead their target, so long as they did so “By The Book.”

That’s their justification for a lengthy series of lies and false statements.

That’s why FBI Director James Comey can lie to the President and tell him he’s not the target of the ongoing Russia investigation. That’s the justification for keeping the accusations inside the Steele Dossier (remember, the Dossier is evidence) from the President-elect. That’s the justification for all of the officials to lie to President Trump, and even mislead the media if needed.

The Susan Rice email is one big Justification Letter; setting the stage for all of the participants to have a plausible reason for lies to anyone and everyone.

Call out John Brennan for telling Harry Reid about the Steele Dossier during his gang-of-eight briefing, but not telling Go8 member Devin Nunes about it. Brennan escapes by saying Nunes was on the Trump transition team; and briefing a conflicted politician on the dossier would have compromised the FBI investigation. See how that works?

Call out James Comey for lying to President-elect Trump during the January 6th Trump Tower meeting…. Comey escapes by saying Trump was a target of the FBI investigation for potential compromise as a Russian asset; informing the target of the evidence against him would have compromised the investigation. See how that works?

Every lie, every omission, every false and/or misleading statement, must first be filtered through the “By The Book” prism of Trump being considered a Russian asset. This is the justification trap democrats are waiting to exploit for maximum damage and diminishment of counter attack.

The “By the Book” justification, where every action could have been taken because Trump might have been an actual Russian operative, is the weapon under the camouflage tarp as the radical left lures-in their political opposition. They shrug their shoulders and say in condescending voice: ‘well, we didn’t know; we had to be prudent‘, etc.

Getting outraged about the Obama administration’s lies, misstatements and fabrications can backfire if you don’t first think about it from their constructed frame-of-reference.

The ‘By-the-Book’ framework is based on a false-premise; but the action, just about any action, taken to mislead (even undermine) the incoming administration is excusable under this carefully crafted justification memo. That’s exactly why Susan Rice wrote it; and each of the participating members knows they can use it, when needed.

The way to get around the legal and political defense inside this justification memo is to ignore the activity of those protected by it and go directly to the origin of how they created that false premise in the first place:

♦ President Trump can prove the July 31st, 2016, Crossfire Hurricane counterintelligence operation originated from a scheme within the intelligence apparatus by exposing the preceding CIA operation that created the originating “Electronic Communication” memo. Declassify that two-page “EC” document that Brennan gave to Comey.  [The trail is found within the Weissmann report and the use of Alexander Downer – SEE HERE]

♦ 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.  [The trail was memorialized by James Comey – SEE HERE]

♦ 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? Daniel Richman?]  The was a weaponized surveillance and domestic political spying operation. [The trail was laid down in specific detail by Judge Collyer – SEE HERE]

♦ 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. The creation of the Steele Dossier was the cover-up operation. [SEE HERE]

♦ 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.  The current redactions were made by the people who weaponized the intelligence system for political surveillance and spy operation.  This is why Page and Strzok texts are redacted!

♦ 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] Bruce Ohr is the courier, carrying information from those outside to those on the inside.

♦ 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. Also Release the October 20th, 2017, second scope memo recently discovered.  The Scope Memos are keys to unlocking the underlying spy/surveillance cover-up. [SEE HERE and SEE HERE]

        It’s not about smart, it’s about arrogance. Hubris, if you will. They never thought that President Trump would win, so they did things expecting to be taken care of. She lost. Now they’re going to be taken care of in a way that’s quite different from what they expected. As far as this theory from Sundance, I rarely disagree but here I do. The outrage trap might be a real construct of the coup plotters, but even if it is, it doesn’t have a chance at success. The email is written after the fact. Not before. And let me explain a little bit of why President Trump is steamrolling the uniparty. Think of previous Presidents, and how they did things. They would plan to do something like healthcare or taxes. They would roll out a plan. They would have press conferences, send surrogates on tv, for months, they would focus on the thing they were doing, whatever it was. They wouldn’t be doing anything else, just that thing. This allows the enemedia and the uniparty to focus on stopping that one thing. The presidency could spend 6 months like that. BUT NOT PRESIDENT TRUMP. He’s a worker bee. He’s got a hundred and 50 irons in the fire, and he’s tracking every one of them at all times. He’s coming at them from so many directions at once, it’s like he’s got them surrounded. They block his right hook and the uppecut gets through. They’re staggered, reeling. They’re too lazy and incompetent to withstand the onslaught. They’re used to the just one thing at a time approach. The same thing applies here. President Trump hasn’t been ONLY defending himself. He’s accomplished a lot while it was going on. And anyone who thinks he hasn’t been planning for this moment is in for a big suprise. If you strike at the king, you better kill the king. They barely scratched him. There’s 2 people I never want to see lying in bed looking at the ceiling and thinking about how to stick it to me…. Bill Belichek and President Donald J Trump.

          Don’t miss sundance’s main point: the plotters have their excuse lined up for all the ‘outrage stuff’, everything that occurred after the coup began, i.e. ‘we honestly believed that Trump was colluding with the Russians and was under Russian control, so we had to investigate’. If we focus on the ‘outrage points’ (they sent in spies, they wiretapped, they lied, etc.), that provides the conspirators breathing room to play out their defense. If we focus on the beginning…how the counterintelligence investigation began, we are on the much stronger ground, as the creeps have no defense for using the dossier and lying to the FISA Court or using foreign spies to circumvent our laws.

      Somebody in the cabal was clever enough to see the long term benefits of setting up a counter intelligence investigation. Conveniently enough, now that all sorts of investigative material has been gathered via methods they never could have employed during a criminal investigation, Congressional Democrats have a decent shot at throwing enough of a tantrum that they can use all that material to slime anyone they want. Would have been much harder for them if it had been a criminal investigation.

Don’t have enough faith in our Justice System when we know there are still Obama obstructionist within all parts of our Government.

      If you look at the details of Horowits I.G. report on McCabe, unlike FBI with their 302 nonsense, the I.G. investigators TAPE recorded their interviews with McCabe, openly.
      After further investigation, and finding clear evidence he was lieing, they interviewed him again, and he tried the “No, thats NOT what I said!”, and it didn’t work, cause they had him on tape.
      THATS the advantage of sworn testimony/depositions.

    Sundance lays out a good strategy to counter their narrative and I hope the WH is taking notes! As an additional step perhaps someone should slyly interview Obama about the level of Russian interference into the election. His ego and arrogance won’t permit him to say it was really intense or widespread lest he look bad for not doing anything about it. Thus, if he downplays Russian interference, it’d be very hard to come back and say it was unprecedented with the serious possibility that a presidential candidate (Trump) might be Russian agent, stooge, or plant.

    President Trump on Thursday renewed his vow to declassify a wide swath of “devastating” documents related to the Russia probe “and much more” – adding that he’s glad he waited until the Mueller investigation was complete.

    In a Thursday night phone interview on Fox News, host Sean Hannity asked “will you declassify the FISA applications, gang of 8 material, those 302s – what we call on this program ‘the bucket of five’?”

    To which Trump replied: “Yes, everything is going to be declassified – and more, much more than what you just mentioned. It will all be declassified, and I’m glad I waited because i thought that maybe they would obstruct if I did it early – and I think I was right. So I’m glad I waited, and now the Attorney General can take a look – a very strong look at whatever it is, but it will be declassified and more than what you just mentioned.”

    There is probably a paper trail (“classified” of course) of how Obama/DOJ/FBI money got to Halper and Misfud, to pay the $3,000 “honorarium” and airfare to Papadopolous, and the $10,000 to Papadopolous that the FBI hoped to find on papaD when he returned to the US. Judicial Watch should FOIA it. The AG should get it. Halper was paid $400,000 during the 2016 campaign for “research”, apparently by the Department of defense. Lots of payments are made from one US Agency through another, to intentionally hide the origin.
    Whatever contract was made with halper, misfud, Page (as a paid DoD, FBI, CIA spy), the Israeli who geve $10,000 to Papadopolous, is still in the US agency records. Whatever reasons or authorizations there were for transferring money from DOJ/FBI/CIA to halper via the Department of Defense , are in the US Government records.

    Mary McCord sure has had her hands in all the deep state’s cookie jars. Since she left her DOJ/NSA position in May of 2017, she’s been busy advocating behind the scenes for nothing less than tyranny.

    First-a little background:
    “McCord joined the National Security division of the Justice Department in 2014, during the Obama administration, and became acting Assistant Attorney General of the Department in 2016, following the resignation of John Carlin. [She led the Trump-Russia counterintelligence operation from November 2016 to May 2017]. Previously, she served as the Criminal Division Chief in the Washington D.C. U.S. attorney’s office for 20 years.”

    (Note: McCord was in charge of the Benghazi investigation. Go figure.)
    http://time.com/4749808/mary-mccord-justice-department-donald-trump-russia/

    Obama’s tool? Mary McCord testified to Congress on behalf of the OBama Administration about the Iran Deal—specifically on the cash payments to Iran. (September 2016)
    https://docs.house.gov/meetings/BA/BA09/20160908/105281/HHRG-114-BA09-Wstate-McCordM-20160908.pdf

    There is very little information online about Mary McCord. The professional information is carefully crafted. Before she left in May 2017, she had two big press releases in April:

    1) The 42-count indictment of 2 Russian nationals (spies) and 2 hackers who allegedly stole millions of Yahoo and other email accounts. This was the “first time the U.S. government has criminally charged Russian spies for cyber offences.” (Note: These hacks were separate from the DNC/Clinton hacks but this fact wasn’t emphasized in media reports.)
    https://www.reuters.com/article/us-yahoo-hack-indictments-fsb-idUSKBN16N0CO
    2)Indictment of state department employee Candace Claiborne for Chinese espionage. (My thoughts: There has to be more to this Claiborne story. That case has sat dormant for 2 years. Not one image exists of Claiborne. Her internet presence has been completely erased.)
    https://heavy.com/news/2017/03/candace-claiborne-state-department-employee-fbi-lying-china-spies-bribes/

    Mary McCord gave no reasons for resigning in May 2017. Maybe she needed to care for a sick and dying parent.

    James McCord, Jr.-of Watergate fame-died 2 years ago-just one month after Mary resigned from NSA. He was a CIA operative. His death was kept secret until a WAPO article announced it just two weeks ago. Even WAPO can’t explain why his death went unnoticed for 2 years. (I’m sure they could if they wanted to. Isn’t WAPO the CIA’s mouthpiece?). None of the media reports about his death name his 3 children. This link might explain the secrecy but it makes no mention of his possibly having a daughter at NSA who was neck deep in the Trump Russia hoax just one month before he died. https://kennedysandking.com/obituaries/the-mysterious-life-and-death-of-james-w-mccord

    When we consider that both Peter Strzok and Christine Blasey Ford are children of CIA, it’s not hard to imagine that Mary McCord might be one too. Certainly, the Deep State wouldn’t have wanted the world to know that a key figure in the Trump Russia coup attempt was the daughter of a CIA operative whose own actions took down a sitting president 45 years ago.

    Since leaving the DOJ/NSA in May 2017, Mary McCord has been an outspoken critic of volunteer militias and paramilitary groups—such as the Oath Keepers, etc. She has been advising local and state governments on how to legally prevent these groups from organizing and how to keep out-of-state militias from showing up in places like Charlottesville, Seattle, and along our undefended southern border. This obvious obsession with stopping armed resistance and defense groups also implies a possible fear that the formation of these groups could increase in the future.

    Because most of today’s illegal immigrants are brown skinned, we must support open borders or be called a racist/white supremacist by the Left. Therefore, all Trump supporters are racists and any militia or paramilitary group who shows up at the border is a white supremacist movement-akin to the KKK. Even ICE is a KKK equivalent, according to Kamala Harris. This kind of political misdirection is the craft of McCord and several other white elites at Lawfare and Georgetown.

    McCord is also part of the litigation team who is filing lawsuits and briefs against adding the citizenship question to the 2020 census. She is also part of a group from Georgetown who is defending churches on the border against imminent domain (to build the wall.) So far, her side is losing these cases.

    Click and scroll down for links of news articles and cases involving Mary McCord as summarized above. (Yeah-I read most of them. Know thine enemy.)
    https://www.law.georgetown.edu/faculty/mary-mccord/

    McCord is behind the recent media talking points that tied President Trump to the synagogue shooting and New Zealand mosque attack. According to her, the shooter’s mindset was similar to PDT’s in that they both used the word “invasion.” Much of what the MSM says comes from McCord and all the other ex-officials now working at Lawfare, Georgetown, and at the fake news media outlets.

    Mary McCord wants the feds to have the power to track so-called patterns of online hate speech to prevent “right wing extremist” terror attacks. She also wants Silicon Valley to play the same game. She has been going around the country speaking on cyber security and advocating to big tech companies what basically amounts to censorship. Perhaps we can thank her for the past two years of increasing censorship of the right by YouTube, Twitter, Google, Facebook, etc. The goal is to silence any and all political dissent. Most recently, she has gone after Cloudfare and other companies who offer encryption security to so-called “hate groups.” I noticed that ANTIFA never makes her hate group list.

    It’s not just groups—she wants to go after individuals. In the past 3-6 months, Mary McCord has been leading the call for new federal policy on “domestic terrorism.” Specifically, she wants the federal government to be able to use the same investigative tools on American citizens as it does on international terrorist threats. Although she and her lawfare cohorts repeatedly use white supremacy groups as examples, such a law would implicate anyone who disagrees with government-in terms of making them a candidate for surveillance. She reasons that most “domestic terrorists” don’t organize or belong to any group but lone wolves often verbalize their beliefs online before they attack. As it stands, the feds can’t follow, access, or analyze this activity because they can’t surveil U.S. citizens and most lone wolf domestic terrorist attacks are handled by state and local authorities.

    McCord is already behind a new label, “incel”—which easily applies to any man who expresses anger at a woman or group of women. The goal seems to be to find as many reasons as possible to label and criminalize as many white guys as possible before they do anything wrong. Ms. McCord is a feminazi -in case you didn’t notice.

    The FBI association, of all people/s, is completely on board with McCord’s ideas. “The federal code includes a definition of domestic terrorism but has no penalties associated with it. A proposal floated by the FBI association would borrow the language of that definition — the use of violence for political means to intimidate or coerce a government or civilian population — and make it a crime no matter what type of weapon is used.” (So much for those good ole boys in the rank and file, huh?)
    https://apnews.com/dba83c3a4f11457f852af74cbea1b96e

    The current mindset of the Left is much like that of 19th century slaveowners who created and enforced harsh slave codes as slave rebellions and talk of abolition increased. It’s also eerily similar to those intolerable acts imposed by the British on the Colonists just before the Revolution. The colonists’ “rights of Englishmen” under the British constitution were eventually rendered null and void. The reaction of the tyrant to his rebels is always to clamp down harder and harder. If Mary McCord and her leftist cabal ever succeed in what they brazenly admit they want to do to those of us who disagree with them, we will have to fight a war or live under their tyranny. Perhaps they already anticipate the choice we will make.

    I think Mary McCord lays out exactly what is coming if the swamp isn’t drained and the Left takes power in 2020. They will silence us through censorship, criminalize us through surveillance, replace us with third world immigrants, and tax us into poverty just to make sure that we never again have a way to elect another Donald Trump.

    Final question: Why hasn’t Mary McCord ever been called to testify before the Senate or House Intel Committees during their HRC/Trump-Russia investigations?

        CIA – BRENNAN’S ILLEGAL JOINT COUNTER-INTELLIGENCE TASKFORCE

        “Panicking at the sight of Donald Trump’s Super Tuesday wins in March 2016, Brennan had by the following month formed the beginnings of a spying operation against him, and managed to enmesh a bunch of other agencies in it, thinking that would keep the outside of the CIA’s cup clean. How do we know this? Because a “senior” member of the intelligence community — back when such a figure thought talking out of school about such matters would serve the cause of delegitimizing Trump — leaked the existence of the operation to the BBC in January 2017:

        https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-38589427

        ‘Last April [2016], the CIA director was shown intelligence that worried him. It was – allegedly – a tape recording of a conversation about money from the Kremlin going into the US presidential campaign.

        ‘It was passed to the US by an intelligence agency of one of the Baltic States. The CIA cannot act domestically against American citizens so a joint counter-intelligence taskforce was created [WHEN? AND THAT STILL DOESN’T MAKE IT LEGAL, RUN OUT OF CIA OFFICES].

        ‘The taskforce included six agencies or departments of government. Dealing with the domestic, US, side of the inquiry, were the FBI, the Department of the Treasury, and the Department of Justice. For the foreign and intelligence aspects of the investigation, there were another three agencies: the CIA, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence and the National Security Agency, responsible for electronic spying. ‘ ”


        Article by Spectator cont’d (the above is a quote from the BBC within the article)

        “For all intents and purposes, Crossfire Hurricane did not begin in July 2016 but at the moment Trump emerged as Hillary’s rival [March 2016]. Brennan, shortly thereafter, was bringing CIA agents, FBI agents, NSA agents, and an assortment of Obama’s political aides together in one room at CIA headquarters to bat around ideas on how to smoke out the campaign of Hillary’s opponent. Out of these meetings came the plot to infiltrate the Trump campaign.”

    Sundance–I agree completely that Trump-Russia-Wikileaks started in 2015, but the most important point that needs to be uncovered is something different than the origin of the investigation. It is something related to it: How did they know Trump was going to get nominated since they put all of their investigative attention to Trump? The Iowa caucus hadn’t even been held, and it was months before the New Hampshire primary.

      It’s a good point, but I don’t think we know if they put all of their investigative attention to Trump. It will certainly further collapse their narrative if they can show they were also spying on Cruz, etc.

        It would be helpful if they were that stupid.

        Go to a comment I made on the above thread that will explain that the plotters have to have a predicate that falls in the April-May 2016 timeframe because MSM was saying Trump secured nomination then. They did not investigate any other candidates for colluding with Russia. Only Trump. If we can prove they started in 2015, they are doomed. No predicate could have justified what they did except an IMMINENT NOMINATION OF TRUMP, a suspected Russian asset. No time to conduct normal counterintelligence investigation. Exigent circumstance created.

        You’ll also find some interesting links about PERKINS COIE, the ubiquitous Hillary law firm in this mini-thread.

        The plotters need an April-May 2016 start of investigation to tie to imminent Trump nomination.

    Fairly new reader here. 1st time commenter. Question: are there senators or congressmen outside of the uniparty that would benefit from reading about the Outrage Trap as Sundance presents? Anyone who would read links to these articles (or at least have their staffers read them) so they can push the direction of investigations away from the trap and toward investigating the origins? Or are people in power already getting this info, ones that are on the side of truth and justice?

    This article had me worried that Senator Johnson was working against us to protect the corrupt FBI/DOJ participants in the coup attempt.

    During tonight’s MAGA rally in Green Bay, President Trump called out Sen Johnson several times and made it seem like Johnson was on our team. Hopefully he is. The only other possibility I see in calling a lot of attention to him is to put him on the spot. Let him know we are watching him closely and he can join us or get run over!
