Current DOJ and FBI Officials Hide State Dept. Email Outlining Political Motive of Chris Steele…

John Solomon has a new article at The Hill centered around this email from State Department official Kathleen Kavalec after her October 11, 2016, interaction with dossier author Christopher Steele.

The substantive point of the article is how the email proves the political motives of Steele two weeks prior to the FBI/DOJ seeking a FISA application using his work product, the dossier.  Despite knowing the bias motive, the FBI/DOJ persisted in using the dossier for a Title-1 FISA warrant against U.S. person Carter Page on October 21, 2016.

A second issue, perhaps more alarming, surrounds: (1) how the current DOJ and FBI kept the email hidden from congressional investigators; and (2) how the current DOJ and FBI have recently redacted the email, highlighting an ongoing institutional cover-up.

(The Hill) […] Interestingly, one legal justification cited for redacting the Oct. 13, 2016, email is the National Security Act of 1947, which can be used to shield communications involving the CIA or the White House National Security Council.

[…]  Everything else in the memo was blacked out. The FOIA notes contain this explanation for the redactions: “Classified by FBI on 4/25/2019 — Class: SECRET.”

In other words, the FBI under Director Christopher Wray classified the document as “secret” just a few days ago. To add injury to insult, the FBI added this hopeful note: “Declassify on 12/31/2041.” That would be 25 years after the 2016 election. (read more)

      Sperry needs to understand what that document was supposed to represent. In criminal cases, just before going to trial, an entire file-back-and-cover is presented to the USA or AUSA assigned the case. The first serial in the file is a Prosecutorial Summary Report containing nothing but FACTUAL information regarding why the case. The prosecutor then decides, prosecute or decline prosecution. There was nothing but weasel language about things the alleged hackers “APPEARED” to do, as if speculating about the actions. There is no speculation allowed. A prosecutor cannot bring speculation to trial. The Mueller indictment of the Russians is full of the stuff, too, along with inaccuracies about how system logs work and how they are used in Incident Response.

      This thing is an incompetent mess. There is no way something like this should be tolerated. It is the clear politicization of the criminal justice system.

    The previous article and short clip of Wray’s testimony did not convince everyone that Wray was obfuscating or a part of the DS Cover-Up but this e-mail and its revelations; the fact that it “sat buried for more than 2 1/2 years in the files” of Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Kathleen Kavalec and the brazen attempt by the Wray FBI to now label it classified until 12/31/2041 is conclusive proof of a massive despicable cover up.

    Somebody in the Obama admin. screwed up 2 1/2 years ago when this evidence was missed during the alleged period of massive shredding and burning of evidence at the State Dept. and elsewhere. For 2 1/2 years, officials at the State Dept knew the truth and kept silent. This type of damning evidence was what Weissmann/Mueller were hired to divert attention from.

    Meanwhile, the Dems are not interested in the truth and have Schiffted gears and concocted new faux scandals by defaming and threatening A/G Barr with contempt and even jail time by the finger licking Dem Chicken eater and by opening up several non predicated investigations against Trump.

    DC is still reeking with madness and deep seated corruption. But Kudos to Dave Bossie and Citizens United for “bringing this to light.”

      I’ve often thought POTUS talks about the economy a tad too much sometimes at his rallies as the faces behind him often indicate. He has certainly earned the right to brag about the incredible gains in the economy but it might be better for his re-election rallies if he makes his economic points succinctly and gives a little more time to charming and entertaining his fabulous supporters. Nobody does it better and not just in politics.

    Last year, Eric Trump told Hannity that his family had been sent packages of white powder. ‘I’ve been threatened,’ Eric Trump said in August. ‘Our family has been threatened. All of us. We’ve all had white powder show up at our house.’ And months prior to that, Don Jr. had also been sent a threatening letter containing a white powder, resulting in the hospitalization of his now ex-wife Vanessa as a precautionary measure.

    How about a slight variation on the quote “If you want to know who’s really behind the greatest scandal in the history of the Republic, look for the name that’s practically never cited.”

    I nominate Sidney Blumenthal. When Steele made the ludicrous assertion recently that he obtained much of the dossier data off CNN user-supplied gossip site iReport.com, was he helping to conceal Blumenthal’s fingerprints? Rather than two dossiers as the Hill suggests was there only one?

          Yes. We know that Code Shearer made his own dossier. An early version, which included the pee-dossier (his version that is) was sent, in January 2016, by Talbot (State Department, Clintonista, brother-in-law of Cody) to Steele via Orbis Business Intelligence Services email servers in Canada [that last little detail was perhaps added to helpfully indicate which Linux email servers had their data directories open to web-crawlers …].

          Steele re-used the story but had to fix it up a bit because Cody’s imagination had gone overboard and he cited a One Eyed Man in Istanbul as his source, so that was changed to purely anonymous Russian sources….

          https://apelbaum.wordpress.com/2018/03/17/the-mechanics-of-deception/

          “Steele’s information didn’t only flow in one direction. In January 2016, before the Fusion GPS dossier project kicked-into-gear, Johantan Winer and Strobe Talbott were sharing with Steele via Orbis’s Canada hosted servers and email system documents authored by Cody Shearer, who produced a ‘second Trump-Russia dossier’. This document consisted of two four-page reports, one titled “Donald Trump—Background Notes—The Compromised Candidate,” the second “FSB Interview”.

          The reports are almost identical in terms of content and layout to the Steele dossier but references unnamed Turkish businessman with “excellent contacts within the FSB” as the source. The reports echo the same salacious claims and alleged corruption and collusion. Cody Shearer’s mysterious ‘one-eyed man from Istanbul’ source claims that Trump was “filmed in Moscow in November 2013, during the Miss Universe pageant in the presidential suite of the Ritz Carlton Hotel”. He also said that there was a copy of the video somewhere in Bulgaria but that he couldn’t get it.

          Strobe Talbott is Cody Shearer’s brother in law and was Cody’s brother Derek’s roommate in Yale. Talbott is a State Department Russian expert who served as Deputy Secretary of State in the Clinton Administration. Talbott’s wife Brooke Shearer was Hillary Clinton’s personal aide and the lead investigator (nicknamed “The Dumpster Diver”) responsible for digging-up dirt on Bill Clinton’s sexual misconduct accusers. Strobe Talbott and his wife Brooke Shearer knew and worked with Mary Jacoby, Glenn Simpson, Peter Fritsch, Neil King, and Shailagh Murray since the mid 1990s. Talbott knew Steele since at least 2006.”

    Shaheen then asked Wray if the FBI spied on the Trump campaign. Wray was very careful in his answer. Note that, despite the many misleading headlines claiming otherwise, this is the only place where Shaheen actually asked directly about spying in relation to the Trump campaign:

    Shaheen: And do you believe, Director Wray, that the FBI and its agents spied into the 2016 presidential campaign operation?

    Wray: Well, again, I want to be careful about how I answer that question here because there is an ongoing inspector general investigation. I have my own thoughts based on the limited information I’ve seen so far but I don’t think it would be right or appropriate for me to share those at this stage, because I really do think it’s important for everybody to respect the independent inspector general’s investigation, which I think this line of questioning starts to implicate and I think it’s very important for everybody to be able to have full confidence in his review.

    Wray confirmed the ongoing FISA investigation being conducted by Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz but was careful not to comment on it. Nor did Wray confirm or deny spying on the Trump campaign. Also of note, Wray did not in any way dispute Shaheen’s use of the word “spied.”

    Shaheen tried one last time to establish that there had been no illegal surveillance of the Trump campaign. Wray’s answer provided a host of additional headlines:

    Shaheen: At this time do you have any evidence that any illegal surveillance into the campaigns or individuals associated with the campaigns by the FBI occurred?

    Wray: I don’t think I personally have any evidence of that sort.

    Wray’s answer is given greater context in video form, in which it can be seen that Wray paused prior to answering and emphasized the words “I personally,” but the damage was done and the sound bite obtained.

    OK – I get that the Obama administration was corrupt. But NOW it is Trump’s administration and still corrupt. I get that the Collusion Delusion investigation blocked him. But now he needs to put priority on draining the swamp. Period. Bottom line.

    Bob Barr and his investigators can see the classified documents and that’s all that matters right now. Hannity had Trump on his TV show a while ago and POTUS said there were many more documents than we knew about that he plans to declassify. He said he was waiting for ‘them’ to ask for them. Who are they? I’m guessing the IG or AG.

    Christopher Wray is a deep state swamp rat, I never liked him. However, it appears what he’s saying about the spying is he hasn’t investigated it, rather deferring to the IG to do it. Maybe he doesn’t want to “know” what his fellow swamp critters did and doesn’t want to become a witness against them.
