Big Puzzle Pieces Connecting – The CIA, FBI, and 2016 Political Surveillance is Merging…

The admissions within the New York Times story today -outlining how President Obama’s intelligence apparatus ran simultaneous intelligence operations against the Trump campaign- are starting to merge the FBI and CIA operations. CTH anticipated this.

With new information about the “U.K. operation” using Stefan Halper (CIA asset and FBI informant); and the details of the contacts by U.S. intelligence operative Azra Turk; we can overlay the timeline and see a clear picture.

On August 15th, 2016, Lisa Page and Peter Strzok discussed the “insurance policy“:

Two weeks later, September 2nd, 2016, CIA operative Stefan Halper reaches out to George Papadopoulos and introduces him to CIA/FBI asset Azra Turk.

This alignment between the CIA and FBI is not a surprise to anyone who has followed the story behind the 2015/2016 political surveillance issues.  However, there’s a specific connection here many are missing.

Remember, everything AFTER March 9th, 2016, is a cover-story.  Everything after March 9th, 2016, are operations from both the CIA and FBI to hide the political surveillance that was going on before March 9th, 2016.  The surveillance was happening through exploitation of the NSA database through unauthorized FISA search queries; and involved both the CIA and FBI.

This is the point that has not been emphasized enough. However, FISA Judge Rosemary Collyer outlined the connection, albeit with mandatory redactions.  The connective evidence is in a footnote on page #87 of Collyer’s report that few are paying attention to:

Read that carefully and you’ll see an agreement between the CIA and FBI to allow contractors.  Note:

“[CIA] access to FBI systems was the subject of an interagency memorandum of understanding enter into [in ????])”

CTH believes that redacted date is 2012 as a result of another section of the report and the emphasis that Collyer is placing on the time-frame throughout her full report.  Notice also:

“Despite the existence of an interagency memorandum of understanding (presumably prepared or reviewed by FBI lawyers) no notice of this practice was given to the FISC until 2016.”

So there was a secret agreement between the CIA and the FBI that was kept hidden from the FISA court until 2016 when Director Mike Rogers exposed and reported it.

The agreement centered around “access to FBI systems“; and, THIS IS IMPORTANT, we know the overarching issue was “deliberate decisionmaking” that led to “contractor access to the NSA database”, and the fact those contractors were searching “U.S. persons”.

Can you see the process now?

Can you see the potentially layered illegality of the process now?

CIA operatives (contractors) were using FBI portal access (per the secret agreement) to exploit the NSA database and extract search results.  Remember, the CIA is not supposed to be conducting surveillance, aka “spying”, inside the U.S. on American citizens.

In essence the secret agreement, unknown to the court, was the CIA hiding their extraction of U.S. person information by using FBI database access.  [Through the DOJ-NSD (National Security Division)]   Now does it make sense why the DOJ would not allow Inspector General oversight?

In 2015 the Office of Inspector General requested oversight and it was Deputy AG Sally Yates who responded with a lengthy 58-page legal explanation saying, essentially, ‘nope – not allowed.’ (PDF HERE) All of the DOJ is subject to oversight, except the NSD.

The secret MOU (Memorandum of Understanding) between the CIA and FBI was the reason why the DOJ-NSD could never allow inspector general oversight.

In the Obama-era political surveillance programs the lines between the CIA and FBI were blurred. They were working together through contractors. This is why you are noticing blurred lines between the CIA and FBI in the construct of the cover-up.

This is the parallel tracks we previously described, copied below for reference:

Everything after March 9th, 2016, is a function of two intelligence units, the CIA and FBI, operating together to coverup prior political surveillance and spy operations.

Prior to March 9th, 2016, the surveillance and spy operation was using the NSA database to track and monitor their political opposition.  However, once the NSA compliance officer began initiating an internal review of who was accessing the system, the CIA and FBI moved to create ex post facto justification for their endeavors. [Full Backstory]

The evidence for this is found in the documents attached to both operations; and bolsters the original statements by Congressman Devin Nunes as highlighted below.

The CIA track took place between March and July 2016, and consisted of using foreign intelligence allies in Italy, the U.K and Australia to create a background illusion of Russian involvement with the Trump campaign.  This operation was based on earlier -more innocuous- contacts from various countries, weaponized and redeployed in what everyone calls “spygate”.  This track successfully culminated in Operation Crossfire Hurricane.

The FBI track was domestic-centric, albeit sub-contracted to Fusion GPS and later a former British intelligence officer, and took place between April and October 2016; also to create the illusion of Russian involvement.  This operation is best known around the Steele Dossier and FISA warrant against U.S. person Carter Page.  The FBI track continued with the Mueller investigation into 2017, 2018 and 2019.

In April of 2018 Devin Nunes noted:

[Transcript] “So it took us a long time to actually get this, what’s called the electronic communication, as we know it now for your viewers, what it is it’s the original intelligence, original reasons that the counterintelligence was started.

Now this is really important to us because the counterintelligence investigation uses the tools of our intelligence services that are not supposed to be used on American citizens. And we’ve long wanted to know: what intelligence did you have that actually led to this investigation? So what we’ve found now, after the investigators have reviewed it, is that in fact there was no intelligence.

So we have a traditional partnership with what’s called the Five Eyes Agreement. Five Eyes Agreement involves our friends in Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, Canada, and of course, us. So long time processes and procedures in place where we move intelligence across.

We are not supposed to spy on each others’ citizens. And it’s worked well. And it continues to work well. And we know it’s working well because there was no intelligence that passed through the Five Eyes channels to our government.

And that’s why we had to see that original communication. So now we’re trying to figure out, as you know, we are investigating the State Department, we think there’s some major irregularities in the State Department, and we’re trying to figure out how this information about Mr. Papadopoulos of all people who was supposedly meeting with some folks in London, how that made it over across into the FBI’s hands.” (video link)

The direct evidence for what Devin Nunes is describing is found in two specific documents.  Each of the documents is unique to their track.  One track is the CIA the other track is the FBI.  The merging point that binds them is the U.S. State Department.

♦ First, we review the CIA track.

The evidence for the CIA track is found in the Weissmann-Mueller report.  More specifically, it is found in the intentional way the report tries to conflate two contact points.

This track is CIA Director John Brennan’s work, with enlisted help from the FBI counterintelligence unit (Peter Strzok and Bill Priestap) as they travel to the U.K.

After western intelligence asset Joseph Mifsud (posed as a Russian) plants a story on George Papadopoulos about Russia having “emails of Clinton”, the operation then needs Papadopoulos to share the information.  That’s where a joint network comes in.  The network is the U.S. embassy in London; the Australian embassy in London; the Australian Ambassador to the U.K. Alexander Downer; and his top aide Erika Thompson.

Notice page #89 of the report; but read carefully and specifically notice the date Weissmann and Mueller use to frame the Russia story extraction from Papadopoulos:

The meeting on May 6th, was NOT a meeting with Australian Ambassador Alexander Downer.  That meeting did not happen until May 10th.  The recent release of documents from Australia confirm this timeline.

The meeting on May 6th was between George Papadopoulos and Downer’s aide, Erika Thompson:  …”that the Trump campaign had received information from the Russian government that it could assist the campaign through the anonymous release of information that would be damaging to Hillary Clinton.”

So, if the U.S. used the information from the May 6, 2016, meeting as conveyed on July 26th, 2016, it was the conversation with Erika Thompson that opened Crossfire Hurricane; not the meeting with Alexander Downer on May 10th. {Go Deep}

This subtle but important distinction in contact and communication reconciles the statement by Devin Nunes; because Thompson is also a reported intelligence operative (spy) and information from her would not be passing through “Five Eyes” official channels.   However, for their intents and purposes, the U.S. operation needed to give the appearance of official channels, so the *inference* between the claim and the footnote *implies* Ambassador Downer.  But you can see that’s not actually what happened.

This is an example of Weissmann/Mueller disguising the actual origin in their report.  They are giving cover to the reality that unofficial intelligence was the actual basis for the originating “EC” or two-page electronic communication from CIA Director John Brennan to FBI Director James Comey. It was that 2-page EC, likely written by FBI counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok, that initiated “Crossfire Hurricane”.

The page in the Weissmann/Mueller report is factually true but the inference is false.  It is written in the way they intended, to give a false impression.  It is quite subtle and sneaky.

What is outlined on Page #89 is also the CIA track that ran from March to July 31st, 2016.

The operation positioned Joseph Mifsud as a Russian spy; has him plant information on George Papadopoulos; then uses U.S. and AU operatives to withdraw the information; thereby giving the appearance that a Trump campaign official, Papadopoulos, was receiving and passing-on Russian intelligence.  This is the CIA justification for creating the EC.  This is the CIA cover story.

Now let’s review the evidence of the FBI track and how it also connects to the U.S. State Department.  This one is more brutally obvious because the document had to be less ambiguous in construct.   This involves the FISA application on U.S. Person Carter Page.

♦ The FBI Track – The Steele Dossier, FISA Warrant and Carter Page.

The second page of the FISA application used to gain a Title-1 surveillance warrant against U.S. Carter Page identifies where the material came from.  Notice the direct attribution is to the State Department; not the DOJ or FBI, and certainly not Christopher Steele.

Applying hindsight to the backstory of the Clinton Campaign hiring Fusion GPS, and Fusion hiring Christopher Steele for the Dossier; and the dossier being passed on to the FBI and DOJ via various channels… Question: why would the DOJ be citing the State Department for their claim?

The answer is simple.  Carter Page was a known person to the FBI and DOJ.  Carter Page was a subject witness from 2012 to 2016 in the Evgeny Buryakov case [DOJ March 2016].  How could the FBI claim Carter Page was “an agent of a foreign power” to the FISA court in October 2016, when they only finished using him as a cooperating subject witness in May of 2016?  [DOJ May 2016]

The short answers are: (1) they couldn’t; (2) they were in a big hurry; there was a sense of urgency; they needed the FISA and Steele Dossier as insurance policy; and (3) it wasn’t safe for the DOJ/FBI to make the ‘foreign agent‘ claim against their own prior witness if things went sideways.

Remember, this is all a coverup.  Their efforts are about gaining position and appearances to justify a preceding action. Their efforts are not focused on an actual investigation. So they told the FISC the information came from the State Department and [Redacted]. Whichever source could give them the best legal justification to gain the FISA warrant was the leading point in the thought process.

Despite everything around the Steele Dossier primarily inbound from Fusion-GPS and Chris Steele to the DOJ and FBI, the people creating the FISA illusion needed to use the State Department as a valid reference for fraudulent claims they were making.

From the beginning Fusion-GPS was not hired to research Donald Trump; the intelligence community was already doing surveillance and spy operations. The intelligence community needed Fusion GPS to give them a plausible justification for already existing surveillance and spy operations.  Fusion created the dossier for them.

The FBI knew Carter Page.  Essentially Carter Page was irrelevant, what they needed was the FISA warrant and the Dossier in the system {Go Deep} as their insurance policy.

So there we see two parallel tracks; one from the CIA, and one from the FBI.  Both intended to provide a cover story for political surveillance and spy operations that preceded March 9, 2016. The CIA track created ‘crossfire hurricane’.  The FBI track created the Steele Dossier.  Both had the same purpose.

Both tracks originated from ‘unofficial channels’ and then transferred into official status through the use of two documents.  The CIA generated the two-page “EC”; and the FBI generated the FISA application from the Steele Dossier.

Both tracks held the same coverup purpose; both tracks were insurance policies; and both tracks merged for intelligence exploitation after President Trump won the election.  After the election the goal was shifted to remove the risk Trump represented.

Once they had the legal justifications for targeting Trump, albeit fraudulently obtained, the effort could move into phase three: by-the-book processes.  The FBI track evolved into the Mueller probe; that’s why the Dossier is so important to the validity of the special counsel.

Everything after March 9th, 2016, through today – is covering for everything that happened before March 9th when “contractors” were allowed by the FBI and DOJ to have weaponized access to the NSA database for political surveillance and spy operations.

This two-track process and ultimate merging is what all of the documentary evidence supports.  I suspect when the arc of the story concludes, this is where we will be.

The most important sentence in Judge Collyer’s brief:

 …”many of these non-compliant queries involved the use of the same identifiers over different date ranges.”..

This Page #82 sentence specifically highlights that during the 2016 presidential campaign, those who had access to the NSA database were searching the same phone numbers, email addresses, electronic “identifiers”, or people, repeatedly over different dates.

Specific people were being tracked/monitored.

    There’s one thing I would add to Sundance’s excellent analysis: It wasn’t just the CIA that was using spies to “dirty up” Trump associates. The FBI was doing it too. There was the infamous Natalia Veselnitskaya who is known for her part in the Trump Tower meeting. She had been banned from the country but got a special visa signed off by Preet Bahara of the FBI, Southern District of New York. Henry Greenburg, the known FBI informant who tried to entrap Roger Stone, also got a special visa. And I’m sure there are many more…

          Sundance, I would like to add the political polling “panic” dates to your analysis. The La Times daily tracking poll was the most accurate public poll, and probably the Hillary campaign polls showed similar results.
          First, before the conventions Trump was 44% vs 40%. After Comey’s “NO action” July 5th, they moved to a tie. However, after the Republican convention Trump rockets to 47+% by the time of the DNC convention July 25-27th. This is the first critical “panic” demanding immediate action. So out comes Downer on the 26th, stimulated by Wikileaks Podesta email release which they conveniently “conflate” with Hillary’s server emails. Thus the action the next few days to start on July 31st, Crossfire Hurricane.
          Now after the DNC convention Hillary came back into a virtual tie and things bounced around till Sept 17 when Trump “brokr” out again running up to 47+% agian and Hillary slipping almost back to her percentage before her “exoneration” by Comey. This is the second panic and even greater since it is the time people generally start to focus on the election, especially with the upcoming debates. (Also note this was the discovery date on Weiner – and real motivation to hide that stuff as Trump was accelerating!). Trump stays mostly at his high until the “pussy” tapes, then its back to tied.
          But for the third time Trump accelerated back to his 47+% high by about October 26th. Thus, this last “panic” which is seen in the hurry up panic to get the FISA on Carter Page approved!

            Thanks. It’s always important to remember the political context of how and when these decisions were being made. The Clintons and their circle have always been obsessed with poll watching, going back to their earliest days in politics. They don’t have a public opinion that hasn’t been focus-tested and measured, or made a decision without consulting political polling.

      There is no way this level of corruption was totally achieved in Obama’s 8 years. The mechanism was there, there have been dirty actors for probably 60 years or more (think Kennedy assassination) from both parties but all from the Deep State.
      The single most valuable thing that can come from all of this is the exposure of the Deep State members and what they have gained at the expense of the American taxpayer as well as what those who have bribed them have gotten.
      The message needs to be loud, clear and extremely punitive. We sit back and watch members of Congress go into office with modest means (as compared to career politicians) and leave office as multi-millionaires or billionaires. Sorry folks—you are just plain wrong for stealing from us. Let’s also include other government officials who accept bribes from the Fake News Media in exchange for leaks.
      It will be impossible to remove all political influence from governmental agencies but the punishment for using politics within the agencies. That snake has left the nest. We should, however, demand that blatant political bias be removed. This is not to say the removal of people should be merely based on party affiliation. I am constantly reminded in the past few weeks of the double standard within the AG’s office. Dems were mute over Holder and Fast and Furious (including a contempt of Congress citation) and Lo Lynch and Bubba’s rendezvous on the tarmac. It simply does not happen more IN YO FACE than that. There was no justification for either of these cases to have been overlooked. There is an ongoing investigation—excuse me, there are multiple ongoing investigations—into illegal activities now. The Dems are demanding that AG Barr break the law and release everything unredacted. It’s a guarantee that if he does, they will immediately DEMAND that he be arrested and charged with violating federal law. Boy, are they that stupid or do they believe WE are that stupid?

        In his early 1950’s autobiographical book, “Witness”, Whittaker Chambers states that in the 1920s the Soviets targeted three American institutions for infiltration: media, education, and unelected government positions. Once an agent was in place, he helped others come in, and hindered true and honest Americans from getting those positions. They were wildly successful, and have never been routed out.
        FDR’s right hand man, Alger Hiss, was one of them. He passed government documents to Mr. Chambers, who forwarded them to the Soviets, until the day Chambers realized there was indeed a God in heaven, and communism was evil.
        He eventually was a witness against Alger Hiss, presenting “The Pumpkin Papers”, government documents on microfilm that Hiss had given him, that Chambers had secreted in a pumpkin on his farm, as evidence.
        Hiss was only convicted of perjury, yet 50 years later, the Venona Project revealed that he was indeed spying for the Soviets.
        Senator Joe McCarthy was on to the government infiltration, but the infiltrated media destroyed him.
        Soviet aligned infiltrators are the source of the leftist media, leftist education system, and the Deep State. Even though the Soviet Union collapsed, these people carry on like zombies.

      @Electra: I think when all this is said and done there will be so many more players that were involved in this mass spy operation, espionage and treason against candidate and then president Trump involving all 5RYRS countries and others outside the quintet that its almost unbelieving that Europe’s enemies and those within all conspired to reverse the 2016 election results – each one for their own greedy and narcissistic reason.

      I find the Weissman report although credited to Robert Mueller to be misleading in the PapaD description of what actually was stated in his court documents vs what they stated in that report. At no time did PapaD ever approached the Trump campaign informing them about Russia having thousands of emails available to help the Trump campaign dirtying up HRC. This is just despicable.

      Scanning that report looks more like a amateurs or law student in training product and nothing even close to a professional trained or law certified investigator. It’s a laughable piece of junk with so many untruths and twisted words showing the hacks at work.

      Since Ukraine recently also admitted having interfered in the election although we are now getting the first batch of the Chalupa/HRC/Miranda troika collusion involving Steele paying Ukrainian reporters to write made up stories ‘from the top of their heads including salacious details’ to Chalupa’s lobbying the Ukrainian president et al – it gets more and more serious in the scope they cooked this up – the Hussein gang and the HRC/state department gang – wow.

      I was wondering about three or four months ago why the Chalupa hack hired Michael Avenatti to represent her. I wonder how that is going?

      @Sundance : Keep it coming as you are a gem in the pool of trustworthy sources which are few in between.

      What unites all these shady characters from the various countries plus all the 5EYES is the fact that they are all members of Hakluyt in the UK – the CIA/MI6/MI5/SIS and GCHQ that also counts Fusion GPS, CrowdStrike and Nellie Ohr among others. The 5EYES have now been unmasked as nothing more than the spy agency for the CIA and their partners in the UK having spied for a long time on any- and everybody outside of the law of the US.
      Since these 4 private contractors were using the NSA since 2012 is it any wonder how they rammed Obamacare and their other unconstitutional agenda? Blackmail was the method used for compliance or destruction of every opponent or anyone posing a danger to their agenda of discovery. No wonder so many people committed these ‘suicides’ and in 2016 latter part of the year were about 5 or 6 alone. Strange how that happens.

      I can’t decide if he was acting as an FBI informant, was acting as an FBI informant and a loose cannon, or if he’s just a loose cannon that at one time snitched for the FBI.

      The reason we know he is/was an FBI informant is because he FOIA’d his records proving the relationship and then publicly filed them with a court to try to prevent his deportation.

    Per your comment that the FBI was desperate to gain a FISA warrant to cover the previous four years of spying and used Page for that purpose via the State Department, didn’t the FBI already have a FISA warrant on Manafort in place and therefore wouldn’t have needed a warrant for Page to solve their issues? Or do you believe the FBI received FISA warrants on Page, Flynn, Manafort and Papadopoulos at the same time in Oct 2016?

    I’ve said several times here, a T-1 warrant utilizes the entire spectrum of intelligence assets to accomplish the mission. The interagency includes all the 3 letters, the military, and law enforcement. Hell Trumps own Secret Service could be used against him. Devices in the Oval Office, very sophisticated satellites, electronic monitoring of all systems of communication, his bedroom, Mar-a-Lago, undercover agents, and paid informants. All of this is exploitable. Everything is a potential source of information.

    All of the data is pumped into a “fusion cell” aka “the room”, where teams of analysts synthesize it into useful data points. A pattern of life is developed. Analysts use this POL to predict behavior. It’s highly effective. The target is predictably fixed for prosecution….in this case publicly.

    It worked downrange, they didn’t do anything different here.

    This subtle but important distinction in contact and communication reconciles the statement by Devin Nunes; because Thompson is also a reported intelligence operative (spy) and information from her would not be passing through “Five Eyes” official channels. However, for their intents and purposes, the U.S. operation needed to give the appearance of official channels, so the *inference* between the claim and the footnote *implies* Ambassador Downer. But you can see that’s not actually what happened.

    CORRECTION: Actually it WOULD have been intelligence IF she had reported it to the Australian government at the time, or any time before July 26, 2016. But SHE DIDN’T.
    Hence the importance of Nunes remarks. It was not even Five Eye intelligence.

    So how did it end up at the FBI?
    Again read Nunes statement: via the State Department.

    So how did it end up at the State Department: well logically via the US embassy in London.

    My understanding is that Erica Thompson told some staffer at the US embassy that she THOUGHT SHE HEARD SOMETHING about Hillary’s emails from a campaign operative of Trump, several weeks earlier (on May 6th). And Eric told her friend at the US embassy that some time late July 2016 apparently.

    —–

    Mind you an alternative route is possible, but IDK which one would end up being NOT official intelligence and/or NOT via AUS government. Halper, Downer and Mifsud have several MI6 and Hakluyt connections to one another (*), so this smells like a set-up. If so, wouldn’t they make sure that somehow word got out in a more formal way?
    Or perhaps they did not succeed (the recording of Downer had nothing on PapaD, so he wasn’t going to swear to a lie)? And then some other excuse had to be created? One that they could later disown. As they must because the truth was that PapaD didn’t repeat that rumor from Mifsud…

      US Embassies include CIA personnel operating undercover with State Department job titles. They also have overt FBI attaches. Not very hard to imagine such persons channeling anti-Trump “intel” to DC: a) themselves, using their State Dept jobs; b) via pro-Hillary “diplomats” known to them at the embassy; or, c) via unwitting embassy personnel just doing their job “by the book” when intel magically falls over the transom. The communications channels would likely have been planned out by the CIA/FBI operation managers before Turk, Halper, or Downer met with Papadopoulus.

          Sussman is a key to this thing since he implied in a quote in the NYT (link below) that the alleged Russian hackers were not purging system logs on a regular basis to eliminate forensic evidence of their presence on the network. It seems the Russians had to be doing that in 2015, when Comey had SA Hawkins telephoning DNC about Russian hackers from “the Dukes” inside their network and transmitting to Moscow. Yared Tamene could not find anything in the logs that indicated any hackers were in the network in late 2015.

          “You only get one chance to raise the drawbridge,” Mr. Sussmann said. “If the adversaries know you are aware of their presence, they will take steps to burrow in, or erase the logs that show they were present.”

          Tamene reported serious activity only on April 29, 2016 when a real time alert was triggered. My own opinion is this was SOCIAL ENGINEERING to prompt that kind of response. Russian agents moved at will inside that network for nearly a year suddenly gets detected? Someone wanted an Incident Response team in there, and Crowdstrike had been in there earlier on the Bernie deal.

      I believe NSA’s PRISM and related programs collect every bit of digital information going over the internet globally. Then you can query it, and get everything related to a particular device, phone number, person, etc. I believe you select the timeframe as part of the query, but certainly retroactive access would be possible.

      I’ve wondered about how the FBI runs court-ordered surveillance in this era. Do they set up new “wiretaps,” or do they just get access to everything already stored at NSA, which would be much more efficient, and potentially yield retroactive data, as well. If so, FBI would be conducting large-scale access to these data-bases for domestic surveillance as part of routine law enforcement. An interagency memorandum between FBI and CIA could then seek to “hide” illegal CIA domestic surveillance beneath FBI’s high-volume, routine law enforcement domestic searches. Contractors, and dual-report CIA-FBI personnel, could manage the coordination. The Bruce & Nellie Ohr pair, in the 2015 email exchanges previously released, look like an ongoing intelligence sharing operation between the two agencies, including for various legitimate purposes.

      Another possibility that has bothered me is that, once FBI has access to NSA’s PRISM database, and mechanisms to “hide” that access, they’d be tempted in routine law enforcement to “pre-look,” before dedicating scarce resources to obtain search warrants, to confirm that a particular suspect is worth investigating. Any such activity, of course, would violate the 4th Amendment, and jeopardize any convictions obtained. It would be “pre-tasting” the fruit of the poisonous tree. If that is part of what has been going on, thousands of federal prisoners might have grounds to nullify their convictions. Since most of them are well-deserving of their sentences, the “institution” would have reason to keep it hidden. Most of those not involved in managing it wouldn’t even know about it, and would be very bitter if years of their legitimate work were undermined by corrupt management.

      I think President Trump himself has said that maybe not everything will get disclosed. To me, it’s a cancer, and needs to be completely removed.

      There would be NO effort to defend or resolve any areas where strife or violence, or anything that proved too obstructive to positive response to money invested in the region, existed.

      PUt bluntly, when I asked about places like hte Sudan and war targeted areas, the response was a pragmatic ‘shrug’. There would be NO shedding blood for any cause, theirs is a bloodthirsty, cold and calculating war. No courage of conviction, pure and unadulterated greed and arrogant elitism, rationalizing the death of BILLIONS of people with their disingenuous OR genuine belief in the debunked overpopulation myth that the planet can really only sustain 500 million people.

      this is why you see no outrage against genocide by Islam, by gangs, by abortion and by exposing whole populations to long cured disease.

      Obama, from day one, was backed by Soros and Schmidt and Zuckerberg and Bezos and most of the tech billionaires (not Jobs and I don’t think by Ellison), all of whom were in league with him to create that ‘private militia’ to which Obama first alluded during his first campaign, when he mentioned a power greater than military, police and armed citizenry combined; the same to which Maxine Waters so arrogantly alluded.

    The 2012 estimated start date of the CIA-FBI MOU is very curious.

    Robert Mueller was FBI director from 9-2001 through 9-2013.

    CIA directors around this time are:

    Leon E. Panetta (February 13, 2009–June 30, 2011)
    Gen. David Petraeus, U.S. Army (September 6, 2011–November 9, 2012)
    John Brennan (March 8, 2013–January 20, 2017)

    I believe the MOU happened during Panetta’s time at CIA. Him and Mueller were old Clinton Cronies. Also Mueller was term limited out in 2011 except for a congressional extension of 2 years.
    Would have been difficult to hide the start of this program from a new CIA director for too long. At the time Obama wanted Mueller to stay longer than 2 years.

    Gen. Petraeus was appointed to get Obama through the 2012 election and then driven out before he could find all that was going on.

    Brennan took over and the program went into overdrive with Comey’s assistance.

    It wasn’t just a coverup operation that began after the March 9, 2016 exposure by Mike Rogers’ NSA investigation. Contingency plans for a Republican Campaign take-down were prepared in the Fall of 2015 (which covered most Republican candidates including Trump). It was only during early 2016 when Trump emerged as the leading candidate that he became the main focus of their attention. It was at a meeting in the Whitehouse in February 2016 that the issue came to head and the take-down operation was green-lighted. Brennan was tasked with fleshing out the details and orchestrating the operation primarily using CIA assets and contractors. He also recruited the Brits and Ausies during this time frame. Comey’s FBI was slower to spin up, but eventually took the lead and spearheaded the transition from coverup to coup after the election.

    More recently the honorable William P. Barr was sworn in as US Attorney general. Soon thereafter perhaps he had a sit down with Rod Rosenstein regarding the overall scope and the current status of the Mueller Investigation. He then requested a meeting with the Special Counsel in Barr’s new corner office.

    An imaginary meeting.

    Barr ~ “OK now Bob; what was the basis for your investigation?”
    Mueller ~ “Oh, there were indications that Moscow had conspired with the Trump campaign.”
    Barr ~ “OK Bob, did you find any evidence whatsoever of that alleged Russian conspiracy?”
    Mueller ~ “Um, no sir we did not.”
    Barr ~ ” OK Bob, you may leave now and have your report on my desk in 30 days.”
    Mueller ~ “But, but that could take time and we have secured funding through the Summer.”
    Barr ~ ” No. Shut it down NOW! Not 6 months. Not 3 months.”

Even though all the trails lead directly to Obama, our first half black President will never even get implicated. I say he has his sculpture on Mt.

    There is another thread that needs to be pulled. Two DIA employees at the London Embassy met four times with Papadop. They claim it was because of personal curiosity about the Trump Campaign. I’m not convinced. If they were directed by DIA to be curious, there will be emails on JWICs or SIPRNET conveying their conclusions back to DC. If they were encouraged by the London CoS, the messages would be on the CIA system.

    If the CIA and FBI signed this “inter-agency memorandum of understanding” did Cummings, Maxine Waters and Adam Schiff know about it?

    So how would Maxine Waters, know about the “inter-agency memorandum of understanding”. Say, from her work on the Gang-Of-Eight. Remember that Sundance has told us that the Gang-Of-Eight has responsibility for IC oversight.

    I would also remind us of the recent statement from Maxine Waters, calling AG Barr a lier. Is it because she has allot to lose, if AG Barr does investigate?

    Did Paul Ryan hand the speakership over to Maxine Waters in order to keep the illegal actions of the Gang-Of-Eight from 2012, covered-up?

    “Remember, everything AFTER March 9th, 2016, is a cover-story. Everything after March 9th, 2016, are operations from both the CIA and FBI to hide the political surveillance that was going on before March 9th, 2016. The surveillance was happening through exploitation of the NSA database through unauthorized FISA search queries; and involved both the CIA and FBI.”

    Obama was running his own secret police force, spying on American citizens, journalists, AND political opponents (and likely allies as well). If he was spying on the Trump campaign in 2015 when Trump was the darkest of dark horses, he was spying on EVERYONE. And it had been going on for YEARS before the 2016 election.

    THAT’S the real scandal. And when THAT finally breaks … stand by. It will be glorious.

      We know for a fact that they had been spying on reporters, citizens and members of Congress. And used the same kind of legal chicanery to justify it (accusing reporters of being foreign agents under espionage laws) and then issuing abject denials until those denials became untenable. Not to mention using all government agencies to attack political opponents (IRS, EPA, etc).

      This is a well-established pattern with these totalitarian creeps. And they were never held to account, either by Congress or the corrupt leftwing media, which would yawn at the corruption. So naturally they felt emboldened and untouchable. And they got so comfortable and adept at using government to attack their political enemies that they got careless. But that didn’t matter, because SHE would be there to clean up the mess.

    Follow up on my previous post. Maybe the Obama database could be more accurately described as the DNC database of the DNC Cybercrime operation. Obama was critical to the setup of this operation because he was In control of the FBI, DOJ, CIA, DNI, and NSA (indirectly). If surveillance began in 2012 and ended in 2016, four years of information on persons of interest would produce a goldmine of useful material.
    More importantly, several other cases of interest would begin to make more sense. 1, Seth Rich. What if the Podesta emails were not the only files copied from the DNC server? If he also took files pertaining to the Cybercrime operation, that would be critical. 2. Washerman-Schulz. The Awan brothers must have inadvertently collected communications related to the Cybercrime Operation between Democrats in Congress and party officials, and information on persons in the database. 3. Wiener laptop. This was used by Huma Abedin as a backup for communications between Hillary Clinton and many others. It would not be a stretch to think that traffic to/from the Cybercrime Operation is on the laptop. 4. Hillary Clinton’s private server. We can imagine what communications between HRC and other Democrats, and foreign and domestic contacts, and the Cybercrime Operation reside there.
    In all these cases, the related hardware has never been accounted for, but now is the time.

    It seems there may be an even easier way to prove illegal spying without looking at redacted documents if this operation into Trump collusion began in or before March 2016. In March of 2016, it was unclear whether Trump would win the nomination. Cruz and Trump were running fairly close in delegate counts at that point. If Cruz’s campaign had also been targeted by operatives then there would be no doubt possible of the utilization by the BHO admin to weaponize the IC against possible GOP opponents. I noticed Cruz asked Barr a couple of days ago something close to “do we know if the Obama administration investigated any other candidates running for President” or something to that effect. https://youtu.be/Rhjdd_NwlU8?t=395 I think THIS might be more revealing as to any motives related to Trump because as to Trump, there’s been a lot of work to create plausible reasons to investigate. What reasons would there be to investigate Cruz? Would LOVE for Nunez to get this question asked/answered.
