Evidence of Obama Administration Political Surveillance Beginning Mid-2012….

Repost by Request – Considering the upcoming declassification window…between Trump’s state visit in Japan (5/25 – 5/28) and the state visit with the U.K (6/3 – 6/5).

Bucket FiveIntelligence documents that were presented to the Gang of Eight in 2016 that pertain to the FISA application used against U.S. person Carter Page; including all exculpatory intelligence documents that may not have been presented to the FISA Court.  Presumably this would include the recently revealed State Dept Kavalac email; and the FBI transcripts from wiretaps of George Papadopoulos (also listed in Carter Page FISA).

Now that we have significant research files on the 2015 and 2016 political surveillance program; which includes the trail evident within the Weissmann/Mueller report; in combination with the Obama-era DOJ “secret research project” (their words, not mine); we are able to overlay the entire objective and gain a full understanding of how political surveillance was conducted over a period of approximately four to six years.
This is why there’s panic.
Working with a timeline, but also referencing origination material in 2015/2016 – CTH hopes to show how the program operated. This explains an evolution from The IRS Files in 2010 to the FISA Files in 2016.
More importantly, research indicates the modern political exploitation of the NSA database, for weaponized intelligence surveillance of politicians, began mid 2012.


The FISA-702 database extraction process, and utilization of the protections within the smaller intelligence community, was the primary process. We start by reviewing the established record from the 99-page FISC opinion rendered by Presiding Judge Rosemary Collyer on April 26th, 2017; and explain the details within the FISC opinion.
I would strongly urge everyone to read the FISC report (full pdf below) because Judge Collyer outlines how the DOJ, which includes the FBI, had an “institutional lack of candor” in responses to the FISA court. In essence, the Obama administration was continually lying to the court about their activity, and the rate of fourth amendment violations for illegal searches and seizures of U.S. persons’ private information for multiple years.
Unfortunately, due to intelligence terminology Judge Collyer’s brief and ruling is not an easy read for anyone unfamiliar with the FISA processes outlined. The complexity also helps the media avoid discussing, and as a result most Americans have no idea the scale and scope of the issues. So we’ll try to break down the language.

.
For the sake of brevity and common understanding CTH will highlight the most pertinent segments showing just how systemic and troublesome the unlawful electronic surveillance was.
Early in 2016 NSA Director Admiral Mike Rogers was alerted of a significant uptick in FISA-702(17) “About” queries using the FBI/NSA database that holds all metadata records on every form of electronic communication.
The NSA compliance officer alerted Admiral Mike Rogers who then initiated a full compliance audit on/around March 9th, 2016, for the period of November 1st, 2015, through May 1st, 2016.
While the audit was ongoing, due to the severity of the results that were identified, Admiral Mike Rogers stopped anyone from using the 702(17) “about query” option, and went to the extraordinary step of blocking all FBI contractor access to the database on April 18, 2016 (keep these dates in mind).

Here are some significant segments:

The key takeaway from these first paragraphs is how the search query results were exported from the NSA database to users who were not authorized to see the material. The FBI contractors were conducting searches and then removing, or ‘exporting’, the results. Later on, the FBI said all of the exported material was deleted.

Searching the highly classified NSA database is essentially a function of filling out search boxes to identify the user-initiated search parameter and get a return on the search result.
FISA-702(16) is a search of the system returning a U.S. person (“702”); and the “16” is a check box to initiate a search based on “To and From“. Example, if you put in a date and a phone number and check “16” as the search parameter the user will get the returns on everything “To and From” that identified phone number for the specific date. Calls, texts, contacts etc. Including results for the inbound and outbound contacts.
FISA-702(17) is a search of the system returning a U.S. person (702); and the “17” is a check box to initiate a search based on everything “About” the search qualifier. Example, if you put a date and a phone number and check “17” as the search parameter the user will get the returns of everything about that phone. Calls, texts, contacts, geolocation (or gps results), account information, user, service provider etc. As a result, 702(17) can actually be used to locate where the phone (and user) was located on a specific date or sequentially over a specific period of time which is simply a matter of changing the date parameters.
And that’s just from a phone number.
Search an ip address “about” and read all data into that server; put in an email address and gain everything about that account. Or use the electronic address of a GPS enabled vehicle (about) and you can withdraw more electronic data and monitor in real time. Search a credit card number and get everything about the account including what was purchased, where, when, etc. Search a bank account number, get everything about transactions and electronic records etc. Just about anything and everything can be electronically searched; everything has an electronic ‘identifier’.
The search parameter is only limited by the originating field filled out. Names, places, numbers, addresses, etc. By using the “About” parameter there may be thousands or millions of returns. Imagine if you put “@realdonaldtrump” into the search parameter? You could extract all following accounts who interacted on Twitter, or Facebook etc. You are only limited by your imagination and the scale of the electronic connectivity.
As you can see below, on March 9th, 2016, internal auditors noted the FBI was sharing “raw FISA information, including but not limited to Section 702-acquired information”.
In plain English the raw search returns were being shared with unknown entities without any attempt to “minimize” or redact the results. The person(s) attached to the results were named and obvious. There was no effort to hide their identity or protect their 4th amendment rights of privacy:

But what’s the scale here? This is where the story really lies.
Read this next excerpt carefully.
The operators were searching “U.S Persons”. The review of November 1, 2015, to May 1, 2016, showed “eighty-five percent of those queries” were unlawful or “non compliant”.

85% !! “representing [redacted number]”.

We can tell from the space of the redaction the number of searches were between 1,000 and 9,999 [five digits]. If we take the middle number of 5,000 – that means 4,250 unlawful searches out of 5,000.

The [five digit] amount (more than 1,000, less than 10,000), and 85% error rate, was captured in a six month period.
Also notice this very important quote: “many of these non-compliant queries involved the use of the same identifiers over different date ranges.” So they were searching the same phone number, email address, electronic “identifier”, or people, repeatedly over different dates. Specific people were being tracked/monitored.
Additionally, notice the last quote: “while the government reports it is unable to provide a reliable estimate of” these non lawful searches “since 2012, there is no apparent reason to believe the November 2015 [to] April 2016 coincided with an unusually high error rate”.
That means the 85% unlawful FISA-702(16)(17) database abuse has likely been happening since 2012. (Again, remember that date, 2012) Who was FBI Director? Who was his chief-of-staff? Who was CIA Director? ODNI? etc. Remember, the NSA is inside the Pentagon (Defense Dept) command structure. Who was Defense Secretary? And finally, who wrote and signed-off-on the January 2017 Intelligence Community Assessment?
Tens of thousands of searches over four years (since 2012), and 85% of them are illegal. The results were extracted for?…. (I believe this is all political opposition use; and I’ll explain why momentarily.)
OK, that’s the stunning scale; but who was involved?
Private contractors with access to “raw FISA information that went well beyond what was necessary to respond to FBI’s requests“:
And as noted, the contractor access was finally halted on April 18th, 2016.
[Coincidentally (or not), the wife of Fusion-GPS founder Glenn Simpson, Mary Jacoby, goes to the White House the next day on April 19th, 2016.]
None of this is conspiracy theory.
All of this is laid out inside this 99-page opinion from FISC Presiding Judge Rosemary Collyer who also noted that none of this FISA abuse was accidental in a footnote on page 87: “deliberate decisionmaking“:

This specific footnote, if declassified, would be key.  Note the phrase: “([redacted] access to FBI systems was the subject of an interagency memorandum of understanding entered into [redacted])”, this sentence has the potential to expose an internal decision; withheld from congress and the FISA court by the Obama administration; that outlines a process for access and distribution of surveillance data.
Note: “no notice of this practice was given to the FISC until 2016“, that is important.
Summary of this aspect: The FISA court identified and quantified tens-of-thousands of search queries of the NSA/FBI database using the FISA-702(16)(17) system. The database was repeatedly used by persons with contractor access who unlawfully searched and extracted the raw results without redacting the information and shared it with an unknown number of entities.
The outlined process certainly points toward a political spying and surveillance operation; and we are not the only one to think that’s what this system is being used for.
Back in 2017 when House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes was working to reauthorize the FISA legislation, Nunes wrote a letter to ODNI Dan Coats about this specific issue:

SIDEBAR: To solve the issue, well, actually attempt to ensure it never happened again, NSA Director Admiral Mike Rogers eventually took away the “About” query option permanently in 2017. NSA Director Rogers said the abuse was so inherent there was no way to stop it except to remove the process completely. [SEE HERE] Additionally, the NSA database operates as a function of the Pentagon, so the Trump administration went one step further. On his last day as NSA Director Admiral Mike Rogers -together with ODNI Dan Coats- put U.S. cyber-command, the database steward, fully into the U.S. military as a full combatant command. [SEE HERE]
There is little doubt the FISA-702(16)(17) database system was used by Obama-era officials, from 2012 through April 2016, as a way to spy on their political opposition. Quite simply there is no other intellectually honest explanation for the scale and volume of database abuse that was taking place.
When we reconcile what was taking place and who was involved, then the actions of the exact same principle participants take on a jaw-dropping amount of clarity.
All of the action taken by CIA Director Brennan, FBI Director Comey, ODNI Clapper and Defense Secretary Ashton Carter make sense. Including their effort to get NSA Director Mike Rogers fired.
Everything after March 9th, 2016, was done to cover up the weaponization of the FISA database. [Explained Here] Spygate, Russia-Gate, the Steele Dossier, and even the 2017 Intelligence Community Assessment (drawn from the dossier and signed by the above) were needed to create a cover-story and protect themselves from discovery of this four year weaponization, political surveillance and unlawful spying. Even the appointment of Robert Mueller as special counsel makes sense; he was FBI Director when this began.
The beginning decision to use FISA(702) as a domestic surveillance and political spy mechanism appears to have started in/around 2012. Perhaps sometime shortly before the 2012 presidential election and before John Brennan left the White House and moved to CIA. However, there was an earlier version of data assembly that preceded this effort.
Political spying 1.0 was actually the weaponization of the IRS. This is where the term “Secret Research Project” originated as a description from the Obama team. It involved the U.S. Department of Justice under Eric Holder and the FBI under Robert Mueller. It never made sense why Eric Holder requested over 1 million tax records via CD ROM, until overlaying the timeline of the FISA abuse:

The IRS sent the FBI “21 disks constituting a 1.1 million page database of information from 501(c)(4) tax exempt organizations, to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.” The transaction occurred in October 2010 (link)

Why disks? Why send a stack of DISKS to the DOJ and FBI when there’s a pre-existing financial crimes unit within the IRS. All of the evidence within this sketchy operation came directly to the surface in early spring 2012.
The IRS scandal was never really about the IRS, it was always about the DOJ asking the IRS for the database of information. That is why it was transparently a conflict when the same DOJ was tasked with investigating the DOJ/IRS scandal. Additionally, Obama sent his chief-of-staff Jack Lew to become Treasury Secretary; effectively placing an ally to oversee/cover-up any issues. As Treasury Secretary Lew did just that.
Lesson Learned – It would appear the Obama administration learned a lesson from attempting to gather a large opposition research database operation inside a functioning organization large enough to have some good people that might blow the whistle.
The timeline reflects a few months after realizing the “Secret Research Project” was now worthless (June 2012), they focused more deliberately on a smaller network within the intelligence apparatus and began weaponizing the FBI/NSA database.  If our hunch is correct, that is what will be visible in footnote #69:

How this all comes together in 2019

Fusion GPS was not hired in April 2016 to research Donald Trump. As shown in the evidence provided by the FISC, the intelligence community was already doing surveillance and spy operations. The Obama administration already knew everything about the Trump campaign, and were monitoring everything by exploiting the FISA database.
However, after the NSA alerts in/around March 9th, 2016, and particularly after the April 18th shutdown of contractor access, the Obama intelligence community needed Fusion GPS to create a legal albeit ex post facto justification for the pre-existing surveillance and spy operations. Fusion GPS gave them that justification in the Steele Dossier.
That’s why the FBI small group, which later transitioned into the Mueller team, are so strongly committed to and defending the formation of the Steele Dossier and its dubious content. The Steele Dossier contains the cover-story and justification for the pre-existing surveillance operation.
During a rather innocuous podcast discussion panel April 12th, 2019, one of President Trump’s personal lawyers Jay Sekulow mentioned the FBI had three FISA applications denied by the FISA court in 2016. [Podcast Here – Note comment at 25:05] The denials were always suspected; however, until now no-one in/around the administration has ever confirmed.
If Sekulow is accurate, this adds additional context to the actions of the FBI in the aftermath of Admiral Mike Rogers and an increased urgency in gaining legal justification for surveillance and spy operation unlawfully taking place. A valid FISA warrant would help the FBI cover-up the surveillance. The likely targets were Manafort, Flynn and Papadopoulos…. but it appears the DOJ/FBI were rebuked.
These FISC denials would then initiate institutional panic dependent on the election outcome. An insurance policy would be needed. The Steele Dossier becomes the investigative virus the FBI wanted inside the system. To get the virus into official status, they used the FISA application as the delivery method and injected it into Carter Page. The FBI already knew Carter Page; essentially Carter Page was irrelevant, what they needed was the FISA warrant and the Dossier in the system {Go Deep}.
Fusion GPS was not hired to research 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-GPS gave them the justification they needed for a FISA warrant with the Steele Dossier. Ultimately that’s why the Steele Dossier is so important; without it, the DOJ and FBI are naked with their FISA-702 abuse as outlined by John Ratcliffe.




.
No-one really knows the extent of the current documents and/or information that may be subject to the AG Bill Barr declassification. However, this is the original list as outlined in September 2018, and the agencies who would be involved in the declassification process:

  1. All versions of the Carter Page FISA applications (DOJ) (DoS) (FBI) (ODNI).
  2. All of the Bruce Ohr 302’s filled out by the FBI. (FBI) (ODNI)
  3. All of Bruce Ohr’s emails (FBI) (DOJ) (CIA) (ODNI), and supportive documents and material provided by Bruce Ohr to the FBI. (FBI)
  4. All relevant documents pertaining to the supportive material within the FISA application. (FBI) (DOJ-NSD ) (DoS) (CIA) (DNI) (NSA) (ODNI);
  5. All intelligence documents that were presented to the Gang of Eight in 2016 that pertain to the FISA application used against U.S. person Carter Page; including all exculpatory intelligence documents that may not have been presented to the FISA Court. (CIA) (FBI) (DOJ) (ODNI) (DoS) (NSA)
  6. All unredacted text messages and email content between Lisa Page and Peter Strzok on all devices. (FBI) (DOJ) (DOJ-NSD) (ODNI)
  7. The originating CIA “EC” or two-page electronic communication from former CIA Director John Brennan to FBI Director James Comey that started Operation Crossfire Hurricane in July 2016. (CIA) (FBI) (ODNI)

♦ 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?]  This 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.
♦ 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]

    Robert Mueller was FBI Director in 2012.
    Robert Mueller was FBI Director in 2012.
    Robert Mueller was FBI Director in 2012.
    Robert Mueller was FBI Director in 2012.
    It was his baby.
    It is why they brought him back for one last hurrah.

    • grandmotherpatriot says:

      Yes and was the Director when the Woods Procedure was created.

      • Sammy Hains says:

        Mueller was supposed to leave in 2011. The law calls for the FBI Director to serve for no more than 10 years. This was put in place after the corrupt tenure of J. Edgar Hoover.
        0bama kept Mueller on until after the 2012 election.
        Because Mueller was 0bama’s political spy chief.
        I’m betting Mueller also knows what went “wrong” with Romney’s Project ORCA on election day in 2012.

        • grandmotherpatriot says:

          It would not surprise me at all as Obama and the Chicago political machine have been stealing elections for years.
          Like I stated the Woods Procedure for the FISA Court was created under Meuller ‘s FBI.
          Even now as I type and we are all focused on the shiny object in the room Spygate and the Russian Hoax, Obama and Holder have been busy redistricting Key States for the 2020 election. They’re using judges nuked in under Dirty Harry Reid.
          The perfect Rules for Radicals scam – cause chaos to keep the focus off what is happening behind the scenes.

          So why didn’t Mueller make up a phony obstruction charge against POTUS, don Jr, or kushner??? He could have set them up easily and the MSM would have carried the lie. What happened? Who and how was Mueller nuetred??? Was a deal made???

          • dd_sc says:

            I suspect the Uniparty doesn’t want to actually go to an impeachment and senate trial where evidence needs to be introduced. The goal is to get Trump to resign, or provide Senate RINOs enough cover to pressure Trump to resign.

            • TheLastDemocrat says:

              Or, convince voters to elect someone else in 2020. Plain ol’ political slander. Cast a taint on Trump – no need to prove anything, just give voters this impression.

              • Dutchman says:

            • Dutchman says:

              “Trump to resign, or provide Senate Rinos enough cover to pressure Trump to resign.”
              THIS. The MAIN plan for Mueller, was to never need to right a report that actually mattered.
              PDJT was SUPPOSED to get p.o.’d and fire Mueller, Rosie etc. THATS what they wanted. Then McConnell sends Graham over to tell POTUS if we put it to a vote, you WILL be impeached.
              Problem is, PDJT didn’t accomodate them, and they could only delay for so long. The whole thrust of Mueller, from his interview on, was to build obstruction case to give cover for Republicans to vote for impeachment.

          • pucecatt says:

            My guess is mueller knew the lovebirds and others left a mess that couldn’t be explained away , so he had to play it “ by the book “ too much evidence that would contradict his findings if they were negative towards Potus , plus there was no evidence of wrongdoing, the only wrongdoing was coming from the other side . His investigation was nothing more than a tool to muddy the waters for almost 3 years .

          • nikkichico7 says:

            I read somewhere that muller .. spit? … delivered the uranium sample to Russia so his gonads are in hock so to speak … and I dearly hope it’s true … miserable creep

        • dd_sc says:

          I believe it requires Senate approval for FBI Director to serve past 10 years; but not another confirmation hearing, just a vote. So a Democrat Senate rubber stamped that approval.

        • bgood says:

          Agree that it’s mysterious as hell. Maybe they realized the secrets were coming out no matter what they did (imagine the buzzkill for them when that finally sunk in).

          • Dutchman says:

            Personally, I think it was the flight on AF1, with Rosie. PDJT could be confident of no bugs or witnesses, except MAYBE ‘HIS’ when he had a tete a tete, perhaps one on one, with Rosie.
            Sang him a little Phil Collins, “know what you did, and all been a pack of lies”. For me, that seemed to be a turning point, somehow.

        Several people have noticed a lack of wedding ring on Barry’s finger. Then he comes out with that comment about Michelle.
        Except for that book tour ( which I do not believe those books sold numbers), Michelle has made only two media appearances in this country and the only thing we see of Barry is out of the country. (Bush’s funeral doesn’t count) For a power couple whose lifestyle is predicated on ‘in your face’ this seems odd.

      Also, do not forget Gen Vincent Stewart. He is as dirty as they come, and he is a vicious racist to boot. He seems to be slotted into the right billets at the right crucial times in the overall timeline, yet he has stayed off everyone’s radar.
      Was the Head of USMC intelligence 2009-2013 and was supposed to go over to the CIA but suddenly the assignment was changed and he was moved to CG, USMC Cyberspace Forces, NSA. He was CG Cyberspace command Ft Meade/NSA 2013-2015, and leading up to the 2016 election when General Mike Flynn was removed, guess who took General Flynn’s place as head of the DIA? (Defense Intelligence Agency). Why, none other than Stewart. There was alot that went on at DIA during this timeframe under Stewart’s “Command” that hopefully will come out in the declass.

      I wonder–and for over a decade, hardly any media outlet ever did or does–about Valerie Jarrett and whether she still, literally, resides in the 0bama’s Washington, D.C. house…??? Why did she move in with the 0bamas in the first place (imagine if Karl Rove had moved in with Dubya and Laura immediately after 43’s Presidential term ended)? What was and is she actually doing there? Justice will not be served completely unless her activities over, at least, the last 10 years are exposed with all of the other nefarious, 0bama hard-leftists–because VJar certainly is one if them and always has been.

    A ton of information here that I will read on the plane tomorrow.

  7. Gadsden says:

    Let’s not forget how Petraeus was taken out even prior to this. His email was being surveilled supposedly based on a tip from a woman who was receiving jealous emails from his mistress. This woman had been to the White House and had attended a symposium with John Kerry…what a coincidence! ?

      Yes, Petraeus’ downfall always smelled foul. He bowed out without any resistance. I also think of Obama’s Illinois State Senate opponent Ryan, whose divorce records were unsealed to take him out of the race.

    • Bing says:

      I like that, but I wonder who the compliance officer was that alerted Admiral Rodgers. Was the compliance officer new to the post? If they were not new to the post what caused the sudden concern, if the abuse had been on going for years. Something drastic changed in early 2016 and it may have been that a new compliance officer is also a hero along side Admiral Rodgers.

        • The dirt Obama harvested on our Judges and Members of Congress to blackmail and extort is likely massive.
          This dirt has likely been copied and recopied in multiple repositories.
          Every single “victim” remains COMPROMISED.
          They cannot be fired.
          IMO there is only one solution:
          PUBLISH the dirt on every single person who has been compromised to eliminate the possibility of future actions to abuse their offices or undermine the country.
          Then leave it to Congress to Impeach the Judges and Voters to Replace the Congress.

          • Maquis says:

            It’s the only way.

                Listen, when Comey, and Brendan, and Clapper said that declassification would destroy our country…they weren’t lying. Step back from the political “win”. What does the rest of the world see? Chaos, civil unrest, courts, legislators, Congress, the Office of President…all compromised, in a big way. Are we strong enough to retain the trust of our allies? Will our enemies pounce (is the China decouple really a way to take away ALL Chinese leverage that WOULD have existed, but for the decoupling?, if they thought we were mortally weak after it is revealed that for years, if not decades there has been a shadow government run by, controlled by, and blackmailed by the Intelligence Community?!
                Why do you think the reveal had been slow?! And enough with the “why isn’t everyone in jail!” PDJT and his team are figuring out how to destroy and quick rebuild our nation from the ground up. I did not believe this is hyperbole. And they MUST be prepared for every contingency: economic, military, whatever.

                  By “destroy” I simply meant reveal the depth and level of corruption, thereby causing the collapse of the Democratic party, and quite a few Republicans as well. I meant shock the system to the core. I did NOT mean destroy in any negative way or connotation. I apologize if any such reference seemed implied or explicit.

                • RE: PDJT and his team are figuring out how to destroy and quick rebuild our nation from the ground up.

          • MTeresa says:

            I think maybe a better way of handling that information is to let the “victim” know that their information is out there and then let them decide what they want to do (resign or fess up). Not exactly the most stellar choices but broad brush publishing victimizes the victim a second time. It’s possible that a lot of good people could be destroyed. Some of these people may have been entrapped.

            • Resignations leave room for return.
              Why would we allow compromised people into positions of power.

          Very curious to know how Hillary gets pulled into the Steele Dossier if it started out as a launder operation. At some point Hillary gets her henchmen (Sid Blumenthal and Cody Shearer) to feed Steele too. Was Hillary approached by Simpson? Was Hilllary encouraged to join in to obscure the original funding for the Steele Dossier? We’re talking about a den of thieves with no honor.

    • Doppler says:

      I feel that it was inevitable that people with hidden access would monetize that access by selling information on demand to hedge funds, who could easily profit from surveilling CFOs responsible for any publicly traded security. Such access would by itself pay for every nickel ever donated to a political campaign by a hedge fund billionaire, a thousand times over.
      And what would prevent them from doing so? Remember, Peter Strzok’s wife got a promotion within SEC just at the time Strzok was to review the Weiner laptop and pronounce it “clean.”
      If you’re going to buy politicians, why not use them to gain access to global surveillance as well as appoint the senior enforcement personnel supervising any ugly enforcement actions.

        If not ‘the same people’, certainly their allies.

      • lolli says:

        Gadsden,
        I have a little different take on sessions. I know most will not agree, that’s fine, I could easily be wrong.
        I think sessions insisted on being the AG, PT said sessions refused any other position, because he went in knowing he would recuse.
        He recused immediately and PT was out of the country.
        PT told us over and over sessions betrayed him.
        Many ignored PTs warnings.
        Sessions not only recused from Russia crap, he let Rosie run the show.
        Many illegal activities took place while sessions turned his head.
        The raiding of a law office. Louis Lerner. Raid and continous torture of P Manafort
        So much that could have been done if he really loved his country.
        If I am wrong, I truly hope to find out because then I could forgive this man.

      Why complain about a guy that is on the same side? I don’t think Sundance is out for glory anyway (why use a pseudonym if you are looking for fame?). Bongino is a good guy and his entertaining delivery helps to get the word out that much more. Besides, he usually gives credit when he uses somebody else’s stuff. Who knows, maybe they have common sources or come to the same conclusions at times.
      Get over it.

      • SpotTheSpook says:

    • Gadsden says:

      Dan Bongino has been covering this just as closely as Sundance for years now. He regularly gives credit to CTH when he uses their material, there’s no reason to accuse him of “ripping” anybody off in this case. How about we stay on target and focus our energy where it belongs?

  15. GSparrow says:

    The minority of American citizens and politicians that have been taking this coup seriously and have been trying to expose it and confront the corrupt participants are the kind of people that have kept America strong, democratic and free since its formation. (Sundance is clearly in that group) The Coup participants that tried to depose a POTUS are the exact opposite.
    The media are supposed to be the country’s watchdogs but most seem to be either fools or part of the cover up. The questions at P Trump’s pre-flight presser were mind boggling. Despite their disinterest, the coup was a serious threat to American democracy and if the voters ever believe that a coup against any candidate has just become another political tactic, then democracy or the belief in it would collapse. There are enough despicable tactics, lies and dirty tricks already in politics and voters need to be certain that another coup attempt like this one never has a chance to occur again.
    A/G Barr has an enormous and crucially important task on his shoulders and yet all some of these corrupt reporters can do is question his integrity and impartiality while ignoring the evils that were unleashed on the nation by the zealots in the Obama admin.

    • Rudolph says:

      I can’t understand why Biden is getting a free pass. He needs to be linked to his administration’s corruption and abuse of power. No way should he have a shot at becoming his party’s nominee, let alone POTUS.

  16. sarasotosfan says:

    Now I understand.
    All that exported data, where did it go? Where did the IRS data go?
    Is it possible it was centralized in the DNC server? Is it possible the FBI knew it went there and were covering for the DNC when they said the exported material had been deleted?
    Now I understand the panic because that data would certainly provide a much better picture of how long pervasive abuse occurred and who knew about it.

    • joeknuckles says:

      It now resides in Obama’s operation center.

    • TheLastDemocrat says:

      This is a lot of data we are talking about.
      If we are talking about: IRS records, plus a few more similarly large data sets, this is a very big data base. You cannot just plop it on a 12 terabyte hard drive and examine it with Excel.
      If it is outside of NSA now, with ValJar as chief “administrator,” they have to have IT experts keeping it safe from hackers, keeping the processors cool, and polling any data out of it…

    • Rhoda R says:

      And it may explain why the DNC didn’t want the FBI to do a forensic investigation on their ‘hacked’ server.

    • distracted2 says:

      This would explain so much. All of their actions regarding the server made them look like a bunch of Keystone cops. And they knew it made them look like Keystone cops. Yet they did it anyway because they had no choice.

  17. mtk says:

    The FBI contractors were conducting searches and then removing, or ‘exporting’, the results. Later on, the FBI said all of the exported material was deleted.
    With my understanding SQL, exporting has two meanings, and is throughly left ambitious.
    Exporting does mean the search results “image” is copied, however, exporting can also as easily mean “cut” from the database.
    In addition, the lengthy discussion leads one to believe these contractors where searching only political opponents, i.e. looking for intelligence, or dirt on them.
    Nothing can be further the truth. As in searching on allied political individuals, and removing inconvenient or even criminal activities from the database.
    Just saying. It is a two way street.

    • grandmotherpatriot says:

      Obama is from the Chicago Political Machine. The IRS is not a Two-way street for anyone let alone a President of the United States to access information.
      We have the right to privacy and clearly, Conservatives were targeted and spied on by Obama and company.

      • mtk says:

        To clarify, I am suggestion two observations based on what I just read and have read in the pass.
        It is based on more than just minimal passing knowledge of database servers and sql commands.
        The first is the discussions and articles on the FISA abuse across a wide range media reporting.
        All the reports are viewing the nature of these contracted users of the FISA(702)(16)(17) as a one way street. That of looking for dirt on political opponents.
        While that is true.
        My “Nothing could be further from the truth” statement is a two-way street observation.
        These contractors could also have been searching for incriminating intelligence that was swept up by the NSA and removing it.
        Second, while it is quite hard to put into layman terms, I am also suggesting that these contracted analysts could have been using their own tools to access the NSA databases, either through the credentials granted to them to acess the databases, or by having fraudulently attained credentials in addition the contracted credentials to do administrative tasks on the databases with the returned ‘image’ of the search results.
        While it is very likely the custodians of the NSA databases have safe guards in place, technically by starting with the observation that these contractors where not showing up for work in the Pentagon with some security officer looking their shoulders, but that they where remotely acessing the database. Then add the possibility they may have been proxying to the Database server through a trusted network. At that point, anything and everything I am suggesting is MOST definately within the capacity of someone who has an inside knowledge of the workings and failsafes of the NSA database servers.
        As in exporting(still not sure) if this means making a copy of the database records OR sending a SQL command to the server to remove(delete) them.

        • grandmotherpatriot says:

    • mtk says:

      Just because the NSA has these search tools pre-built for servlet/http requests and responces along with servlet/http visualization of queries on the NSA databases.
      Does not mean that these contractors where using them, they could have been using their own tools that provided additional functionality.
      It is all based on credentials/privileges, the tech industry calls it handshaking.
      Once the credentials are verified, access/premission is granted.
      To recap the search tool inquiries known as FISA(702)(16)(17), are essentially web browser based applications designed to interact with a Database Server. This server has zero, I repeat zero to do with http/tcpip server. Yes, very often it is intrograted into the http/tcpip server.
      However, theoretically once credentials along with level of privileges are verified, the full range of SQL commands can be sent to the database server.
      Period.

  18. Carson Napier says:

    And so it came to pass that Barack Obama fundamentally transformed America by waving his magic wand and turning the FBI into the Gestapo, the CIA into the KGB and the FISA Court into a Dark Ages Star Chamber. If history is accurately written, this will be the retrograde throwback Barack Obama’s legacy.

  19. SD, thanks for the crystal clear and detailed (though lengthy) explanation and analysis of the corrupt Ozero White House.

    And who else was “investigated” in 2016? Was the sotero gang so sure that DJT would be the nominee that they saw no need to “investigate” other candidates? Like maybe Sen. Cruz?

        And yes, the deep state totally attacked our Extremely Stable Genius President Donald J. Trump, but they never got “up his wazoo”.

    • chuckyschmucky says:

      The sotero gang didn’t lose their virginity on the 2016 campaign did they?
      We know for a fact that they were caught illegally spying on reporters, members of Congress and, of course, the Trump campaign.
      These were merely the few times they were caught. Anybody think those were the only times they engaged in this criminal behavior?
      No, it’s quite clear that they had been doing it for so long and had become so efficient at it that it became almost routine for them. And on the rare occasion they got caught, the corrupt leftwing media gave them a minor slap on the wrist and moved right along. And the hapless Republicans in Congress did nothing to stop it.
      Nobody was holding them accountable, so there was no reason for them to stop doing it. That’s why I expect they got a bit complacent and left a trail of evidence behind.

      I believe he was a Manchurian Candidate, but for the CIA/CFR etc. apparently his grandmother and mother had CIA connections. How many pothead college students gain a former NSA Director as a mentor at the age of 20? I theorize that he was groomed from a young age to be president.

      I would not be too skeptical of any claims of voter fraud for either of his elections, but I do believe he had enough votes to win, legitimately. There was a LOT of excitement in primary voting, and post-primary voting caucusing, over on our (D) side of the school cafeteria. Like I had never seen, and my childhood memories include hanging out as my parents served as volunteers at the polls for most elections.
      Frankly, if he were to be proven ineligible to be president, I doubt anything would get reversed or annulled. It would be nice to have it all go in the history books, however.

  23. The Boss says:

    The discussion of the footnote re: “deliberate decision making” and “inter agency memorandum of understanding” brings to mind a more recent example of the same “things”. Specifically, the deliberate, written plan (reported here) to bring impeachment proceedings against the president by changing House and committee rules AND having key committee chairs execute MOUs.
    I’ll put up a dozen donuts and say that the illegal spying process not only served as inspiration for the current House conspiracy, but also the same people are involved in laying the groundwork for Pelosi and her flying monkey committee chairs to impeach the president.

    • mr.piddles says:

      Well, I *do* like donuts…
      But I think everything we’ve been seeing starting 12AM Nov 9, 2016 is a complex scheme to obfuscate and misdirect in order to ultimately protect The Obama Administration, and specifically the man himself. The Big Donkey in the room is that everybody knows, and has known for a while, where all the arrows point. And articles like Sundance’s above, and T.V. commentary from the likes of Sara Carter are jus bold enough to cut through The Crap that nobody wants to cut through (because it’s complicated and fairly disturbing). So instead we need to talk about Russia and Obstruction Of Justice and Wells Fargo and Porn Stars and Taxi Medallions and Two Scoops Of Vanilla Ice Cream and Dot Dot Dot. I give Adam Schiff credit for one thing: he’s at least TRYING. I mean, that guy is COMMITTED.

  27. buanadha says:

    Following this website for quite some time and paying attention to what the Obama administration was doing all of those years has pushed me so strongly in this direction. It was only a matter of time, IMO, before it became clear that there wasn’t a single decision, vote or activity by Washington that wasn’t likely to have been gotten by illegal surveillance and leverage.
    The Rot started long before, but Obama was probably the most corrupt person to have ever been President.. and that’s saying a lot

    • distracted2 says:

      I agree that the rot started long before. The Democrats have a long history of choosing their candidate for the presidency, just as Sundance outlined this week. Their choice had to be someone who would continue the rot, which is another reason Biden is expecting this to be “his turn”.
      Remember when Hillary said, “They were never going to let me be President”? She had agreed to allow the status quo just so she could be the first female president.
      There was just one problem with their plan: “They” never thought for one minute the American public would wake up and choose the right person for the job – someone who cannot be controlled.

  28. History Teacher says:

    Just wow!
    Stunning when the granular details are exposed and a timeline and motives are overlaid.
    But so depressing and disheartening seeing all the cold, Machiavellian cynicism at the heart of the government institutions.
    This was the day to day, ‘business as usual’ operational activity orchestrated by the ‘community organizer.’ If not treason, then what the h*’ll is it?
    I seriously think that a national referendum about extending this presidential term at least two more years should be considered.
    The level of treason is unprecedented, and this administration has been held hostage like no other. If/when the exposure is complete and irrefutable then we enter new unexplored frontiers. A clean slate and new beginning need not wait till 2020. Years have been wasted with the intentional disruption of normal governance.
    The globalists will still have won a partial victory by obstructing and distracting with their witch hunt. It will be at least three years or more while this circus eats up time and focus. The President earned a four year term to govern. While still in his prime and healthy he has been handicapped from full on action.
    Time lost should now be recovered and extended. And future MAGA disciples need to be fully ready to enter the fray when necessary.

We need more than bucket 5 opened… we need to smash the whole filthy cesspool apart. Will their ‘methods’ for gaining the so called IC be revealed? They should, but they wont I imagine in the first round, however surely Brennan’s so called intelligence used to justify the first FISA would need to include evidence of some sort (if as he says he didnt use the Dossier). I want to know how much, and I hope Barr is more curious than ‘taking it at face value’.

  39. Deplorable_Vespucciland says:

    “Inventor and software designer Dennis Montgomery, a CIA/DOD/DHS/NSA/FBI contractor-turned-whistleblower, alerted FBI Director James Comey’s office in 2015 that President Obama’s CIA chief John Brennan and Obama’s DNI James Clapper had turned the super-surveillance system that Montgomery designed for foreign surveillance known as THE HAMMER into a domestic surveillance system. Montgomery became alarmed when Obama and his intelligence chiefs Brennan and Clapper turned the super-surveillance system against Americans.
    Montgomery asserts that Obama, Brennan, and Clapper used THE HAMMER in a diabolically intrusive manner in order to spy on American people and collect massive amounts of surveillance data for leverage and blackmail. THE HAMMER was supposed to be only used for foreign surveillance; not to be weaponized for domestic surveillance against Americans
    According to U.S. military sources, Montgomery’s surveillance technology not only saved American lives as America’s War on Terror broadened, but also featured built-in safeguards to prevent the system from ever being used for domestic surveillance. Multiple echelons of government, including the FISA court, had to sign off on each and every foreign surveillance operation conducted with the use of THE HAMMER, those sources say.
    Montgomery claims that Brennan and Clapper even used the super-surveillance system to spy on ——-> Federal Judges including the onetime head of the FISA court Judge Reggie Walton, US Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, and Chief Justice of US Supreme Court John Roberts.” ~ TheAmericanReportDotOrg

Get as much intelligence as you can before President Obama leaves the administration because I have the fear that somehow that information would disappear with the senior people who left. So it would be hidden away in the bureaucracy, umm, that the Trump folks if they found out how we knew what we knew about their, the staff, the Trump staff dealing with Russians; that they would try to compromise those sources & methods, meaning we would no longer have access to that intelligence.”

  41. Mercenary says:

    Isn’t this essentially what former CBS reporter Sharyl Attkisson said?
    That the biggest reason they pulled the trigger on the coup was because they couldn’t afford for Trump to look into what they’d been doing for years?
    She basically said they’d been doing it way before 2016. Who was hacking her computer? Who was spying on her?
    What about journalist Michael Hastings who died under suspicious circumstances in June 2013?
    https://newspunch.com/journalist-car-explosion-expose-john-brennan/
    I think 2012 is an excellent starting point, considering Obama had just won re-election and they knew they would have the entire executive branch for the rest of his last term. If I was a subversive dictator, that’s when I activate all of the illegal police state programs I’ve wanted to do.
    Brennan comes in on March 2013.
    We may learn that they were basically spying on all of Obama’s enemies – journalists, politicians, cultural figures, judges, etc.. ALL OF THEM. I think Sharyl Attkisson is correct.

          • Mercenary says:

            I think the reason conservatives are not taken seriously sometimes is because they don’t weigh their words carefully. Simply stating that a President committed multiple felonies as a matter of fact is pretty ridiculous. We may all suspect it, but let’s stick to the known facts. It just makes you look non-credible otherwise.

        • chuckyschmucky says:

          Well, we know his administration illegally spied on Dianne Feinstein. Of course, Brennan denied it until the facts proved otherwise, and he later admitted it.
          So, it’s just a fact that his administration spied on Democrat Senators.
          And, as Jim in TN notes, if he spied on his “friends,” do you doubt he spied on his enemies?

          • Mercenary says:

            I may speculate, but I don’t definitively state as fact that a US President committed multiple felonies. It’s kind of a big deal. Maybe we should weigh our words.

  48. Jim in TN says:

    The current directive involves the 2016 election only. This may include spying on Jeb! and Bernie etc., but it is not going to include spying on Romney in 2012, or the tax spying in 2010-2012.
    I hope there is enough information for them to expand the totality of the Obama corruption that is revealed.
    But remember, the blackmail victim complies because he doesn’t want the information released either. I noticed that the Lankford questions and Roger’s answers totally avoided mention of the contractors, and of the scope of the surveillance of Americans.
    Lankford also spent the last of his time trying to deceive us into thinking this was all about investigating overseas terrorists with only occasional spying on Americans. Yet 702 is solely about spying on Americans. Notice there were no questions for Roger’s to respond with clarification, and he immediately gave back his time.

  49. “Fusion GPS was not hired in April 2016 to research Donald Trump. As shown in the evidence provided by the FISC, the intelligence community was already doing surveillance and spy operations. The Obama administration already knew everything about the Trump campaign, and were monitoring everything by exploiting the FISA database.”
    I believe this kind of tail-wag-dog backwarded logic is not the natural province of Gd-fearing men and women. I think it’s diabolical logic. Right-minded individuals have to struggle at it.
    Think of devastating natural disasters. Decent people instinctively feel immediate concern. Yet there is a group of folks who, with comparable reflexivity, start devising fraudulent schemes to steal from victims and donors alike. That’s the kind of mind behind the Steele Dossier pretense.

  51. alliwantissometruth says:

    What Sundance has laid out here is the line between right and wrong, with absolutely no grey area in between
    A Republic based on true freedom, one in which honesty, integrity, ethics and the rule of law are above all else, for the good of it’s people, versus a perversion of of the concept, where the corrupt and criminal pervert the system in the name of power and/or ideology
    No matter which side of the political coin one falls, the pure concepts of a true Republic must be adhered to if we the people are to remain free and in charge of our own destinies
    Allowing and/or agreeing with the perversion of the system because one agrees with the corrupt and criminal’s politics/ideology is never righteous, is always wrong and in fact makes one a willing accomplice in the corrupt and criminal acts
    Just as I favor a conservative ideology, I would never want that ideology to gain power via corrupt/criminal acts, as it not only destroys the entire concept of what I believe in, but could also be used to put the ideology I loathe into power in the future
    Freedom, honor, integrity and the right to self governance can never be achieved through corrupt/criminal acts, and those concepts must be in place without interference of politics
    I’d tell my democrat voter friends to think before choosing a side on this issue, as it relates to the kind of country we and our children will live in in the future

  53. Jim in TN says:

    Four options.

    B) Barr includes spying on other 2016 candidates and Trump with 702’s.
    C) Barr expands 702 abuse to include all abuse mentioned in Collyer’s report.
    D) Barr conducts a massive sweeping investigation into all of Obama’s illegal spying.
    C) & D) are outside the present scope of Trump’s instructions to Barr.
    What would be best, and how can we help make it happen?

    • There’s nothing keeping Barr from following the evidence (as long as it’s credible and follows a logical flow from one piece of evidence to another). Jumping to a new avenue of investigation without sufficient predicate (which is what’s being investigated in the first place) won’t happen with Barr.

        My impressions from the Benghazi portion of the 2012 debate re the term “demonstration” were, the moment Crawley interfered and backed Obama’s claim, Romney seemed uncertain if his facts were accurate so he let Obama slide or, he didn’t want to appear to be aggressive toward a black President…..and it cost him.

    The NSA’s Hidden Spy Hubs in Eight U.S. Cities
    https://theintercept.com/2018/06/25/att-internet-nsa-spy-hubs/

    • Landslide says:

      Read alot of the article, not all. Wow. Every communication, search, etc. can be retrieved and also monitored in real-time. The article talks about the 8 AT&T hubs (in the US) that do this. They must have many auxiliary buildings around the country because there is one about 3 miles down the road from me. It has an address, but is “not there” on Google Maps! It is unmarked, gated, and has an occasional AT&T van in the parking lot. I’ve always wondered about it….now I know!

  62. Do Stop Thinking About Tomorrow says:

    These programs must be stop the temptation to defeat ones enemies is so easily justified.

  63. k4jjj says:

    The question is not when did the CIA and FBI begin spying on innocent Americans and sharing the results with political insiders. The question is WHO first ordered these agencies to unlawfully do it and by what authority.
    If that question is not asked and the answer publicly given, the people themselves will have to physically rise up against this tyranny.
    The corrupt actors obviously include judges and the law enforcers who cannot be relied upon to remedy the problem.
    Are these people going to try and argue they were all duped to try and play us for fools? Who would want such scoundrels in authority who dare to argue they were hapless idiots?
    This spying demonstrates the U.S. Constitution is not doing its job to restrain the lawless corruption inside the United States government. If the Constitution has become void, the nation is now void.

      An ‘extremely credible source’ has called my office and told me that @BarackObama’s birth certificate is a fraud.
      1:23 PM – 6 Aug 2012

      • Doreen Scott says:

        I have always believed the spying on President Trump started after he talked about Obama’s fake birth certificate.

      • Pyrthroes says:

        Of course it’s fraudulent– Gangrenous was born in Mombasa, Kenya. But surname DNA attests that he is not the son of a drunken Kenyan goatherd but of Comintern pedophile Frank Marshal Davis, an American citizen– thus a full-blown, birthright U.S. citizen himself.
        Gangrenous’ real problem is that from age six, as an adoptive son of Sunni Muslump Indonesian citizen Lolo Soetoro, he became a naturalized Javanese Indonesian resident of Djakarta– an affiliation which he kept while sliming his way to Ayers-Dohrn “red diaper” terrorist venues in Chicago from about age 22 in 1983. This was for purposes of claiming exotic Foreign Student status on admission to Columbia and Hah-vahd, sponsored by billionaire Saudi Wahabist al-Walid bin Talal as a crypyo-Sunni agent-of-influence under Iranian handler Valerie Jarrett (worth $1.5 billion to Teheran’s Shi’ite mullah-dullahs in 2015).
        Since BHO never filed re-naturalization papers with the U.S. State Department from c. 1983, he remained statutorially ineligible to hold any elective U.S. public office, meaning that –despite all manner of fraudulent identity documents from Bar Exam to Draft Registration to Social Security– his Illinois, U.S. Senate, and U.S. Presidential terms were wholly illegitimate. None of this scuttering Rat’s appointments, no legislation, no official Executive or Legislative acts of any nature, have any validity whatever.
        What’s worse– acknowledging this reality, ie. The Truth, or turning shame-facedly away, fearing to admit the American Nation became a literal tool of Black Supremacists, Marxist terrorists, taqiyya Muslump fanatics for eight solid years? Given Rats’ current and ongoing PCBS project to subvert the current Administration by any-and-all means, the answer’s pretty plain.

      The FBI began spying on US citizens in 1908…the CIA in 1947.

  64. Shadrach says:

    This specific footnote, if declassified, would be key. Note the phrase: “([redacted] access to FBI systems was the subject of an interagency memorandum of understanding entered into [redacted])”,
    That second redaction is probably a date, especially since the next sentence says that FISC wasn’t notified until 2016.

    • sundance says:

      Yes I believe that last redaction is: “in 2012”

      • Shadrach says:

        The other interesting thing is that in the pg 87 paste you have in your analysis referring to the same footnote…there are two equal sized redactions. The “BLANK access” and the “BLANK contractors” are the same size and probably the same redaction. Since the latter is referring to an interagency agreement, that second blank is a 3 letter agency. I have my guesses….I wonder if Nellie’s previous employment is relevant. Plus, wasn’t Strozk a detailee from one agency to the other?

    Also Comey, Brennan… they acted like they had nothing to worry about.
    Their attitude tells me, the abuse of power was business as usual. No shame, just pure arrogance.

  67. Mncpo(ret) says:

    After this article, the first thing I thought of was a line from the Snowdan (sic) film.
    When he said it would be illegal to spy on a private citizen without a FISC court order. The other person said, (paraphrasing), “That rubber stamp ***** court is a joke.”
    There was NO fear of the FISC among contractors, they knew they had free rein. Hell, they spied on old girlfriends, ex-wives, anybody they chose.
    They ran wild for a decade at least.

  88. Mac says:

    The IC and DOJ/FBI illegal surveillance operation was one of the reasons why the the Trump insurance project was run. But, do not put on blinders to as to the extent of the activities which caused this.
    In 2016, Adm. Rogers shut down the 702(16)(17) system at the NSA. If the Obama Administration had stopped then, it is very likely that that would have been the end of that matter. At worst, some middle management types would have been fired or, possibly, indicted. But, the upper level people would not have been touched. The bureaucracy would have stonewalled, as they have in the past, and it would be largely ignored or forgotten. After all, the FBI surveilled JFKennedy and MLKing and a number of other political figures and nothing ever came of it. So, what was different in 2016? Was it Trump? Perhaps. Trump was less likely to be subject to political pressure than career politicians. Was it Trump’s supporters calling for HRClinton’s imprisonment over Servergate? Wwweelll…
    The best way to do this investigation is to backtrack. Start with the Mueller report and work backward. Who was involved in the operation at that time? What motivation did, or might, they have for their actions. Then it is investigation of how we ended up with a SC investigation which was merely the moving of the entire Crossfire Hurricane CoInt operation and the Trump obstruction of justice investigation, which McCabe opened following the firing of Jim Comey, from the FBI/DOJ to the SC. Who orchestrated the firing of Comey, the establishment of the SC and recruited Mueller as SC? Keep going backward to Comey’s excusing HRC’s actions in the Servergate operation. Why would he do that, after the case had been ignored for almost three years [2012-2015]? Why attempt to gain FISA coverage for FUTURE electronic surveillance? These warrants will have NO effect on previous illegal acts of surveillance. Why place everything at risk by basing the warrant applications on a “dossier” which was not only totally unverified, but was filled with inaccuracies? Go back to the origins of the dossier. Who compiled the dossier? Who was involved in the funding and dissemination of the dossier? Where did the supposed intelligence come from to establish the possibility of Russian involvement with the Trump campaign? Finally, which people were involved in this operation who also directly benefited from it? Once you get to that point, you are going to find a number of off-shoots; Uranium One, Benghazi [the CIA/DoS operation, not the massacre], the support for the Syrian Civil War, and a host of other scandals. While political surveillance was one of the scandals involved in the insurance policy, it was not the sole reason, nor was it the triggering one.

    A light bulb for me from one of the comments. There have been big populist wins in other countries recently. Why? Sure, popular uprising, but also no intel swaps from US. The info pipeline has dried up. The results speak for themselves…….and will only continue and expand……

Also, has Mary Jacoby ever been called to testify anywhere? She and her family are long time cronies of the Clinton’s way back to their early grifter days in Arkansas.

    The roots of the spying are in the Iran deal and general Obama administration conflict with Israel over Iran deal. Netanyahu gave speech to Congreas in March 2015 — against Iran deal. Obama IC was monitoring Israeli officials and US supporters of Israel officials — in 2014 and into 2015. Then it just morphed into monitoring Trump —- then Trump unexpectedly won the election and the frantic coverup started. UK and Europeans were probably in on watching the Israeli’s too. Talk for the sake of the Iran deal. That is the start of it all the Obama nd European obsession with appeasing Iran. Israel’s speaking out against that started all the spying. And with so many Americans supporting Israel and opposing Iran. It had to include domestic US spying.

    That is one YUGE UGLY STICK! My Gawd… I knew a lot of that was likely going on as far as surveillance by the NSA. They do indeed have hooks into all forms of digital communications and analog prior. The technology is definitely capable. One would think they would have an audit log of all users of the systems logging all their activity when using the system showing all the queries they ran, etc. Opening this up to multi-agency access is insane. All this happened because of 9/11 and a knee-jerk reaction to an enemy living among us.
    What is even worse, is how many times did Google and the other social media elite meet with Obama? Talk about a political weapon… Ugh!

    I think what they are really afraid of right now is Barr finding the name “Mitt Romney.” Once we start seeing documents that all serious republicans were being spied on for several years, the excuse that they had to spy on Trump for national security’s sake goes out the window.
    This is a complex scandal with lots of players and side issues, and a lot of flack and misdirection. Its understandable that most Americans can’t follow all of this. But if Americans hear that Mitt Romney and Donald Trump were spied on by democrats, using agencies of the government, well that’s easy to understand. The democrat party would be finished.

They know what’s coming down the road and it ain’t going to be pretty. Get set for more Democrat bizarre and ugly behavior. They’re dirty as hell. It won’t stop Barr and company.

      1) Pelosi functioning in abnormal capacity — Slurred speech, face contorted and hands look shriveled.
      2) Nadler having what looks like a PANIC ATTACK…again, the blank look on his face when that was happening does not bode well for this human being.
      Would not be surprised that BOTH of these individuals have diminished capacity going forward and the EXTREME STRESS and the stressors will be unrelenting from here on out…Pity to be them…

    You know who we haven’t heard a word from, who is out giving speeches on cybersecurity but has not made a single public comment about all this, despite being in a position to be very knowledgeable? John Carlin. The man who resigned the day after the first FISA application. Did he resign in disgust? Is he a whistleblower steering DOJ IG investigators toward the facts?It’s certainly curious that he is very quiet and others are quiet about him.

  102. I’m wondering, with the volume of illegal spying on individuals, how many of these people can file lawsuits against the government for invasion of privacy????

    • Sentient says:

      Zero

    • All Too Much says:

      Anyone who’s privacy was unlawfully breached has a civil rights claim under Title 28 United States Code Section 1983. That could potentially be hundreds, maybe thousands, of people. Liability won’t be an issue, just the amount of the jury award or settlement. Frankly, I hope my name was umasked somewhere in all this. I can use the money.
      The best news is the perpetrators will all go broke defending the lawsuits and paying off victims. No insurance and no indemnification from the government. Lovely.

      • 7delta says:

        I hear ya, ATM. I sure wouldn’t want a dime of taxpayer money and hopefully, the perps won’t be left with enough to cover the cost of a stamp to mail out restitution checks. I want a year tacked onto the sentences of each and every one of the perps, for each and every infraction. Tens of thousands of violations.
        And, since the Marxist usurper and his band of merry miscreants, weaponized government agencies and their power to glean anything they wanted, don’t they already have POTUS’s tax returns? Not like the IRS wasn’t sending stacks of disks of such info out to its co-conspirators, but Lois failed to include DJT? Hardly. Obviously, they found nothing useful or a construct would have been created to out it long ago.
        The Dems have nothing left, but the wailing. They’ve locked themselves in with Distraction Junk Theater. They misread the sign too. Now the spotlight is plugged in and a hand is on the switch. There’s no way out. “Equal Justice” is coming soon.

      This has always been one of the problems with the FISA court. Unless you can prove you have a FISA on you, (you can’t) then you don’t have standing to sue. Carter Page and the other 3 people we know about (Flynn, Papa, and Manafort) are the only 4 people in the country with standing.

        • We the people know says:

          Mike Rogers goes to the FISA court to blow the whistle on illegal searches (702-17) of the NSA database. Mike Rogers makes the decision to shut down the contractors on April 18, 2016. These searches were of Trump/Trump campaign +++
          Then, wanting to continue searching for Trump/Trump campaign, the FBI shows up with a gussied up, fanciful dossier about Russia and Trump and want a FISA warrant to continue their Trump surveillance. And they GET it in October of 2016.
          So, the FISA court is all clued into the spying on Trump AND YET they give the FBI a warrant to continue spying on them and not an eyebrow was raised? Do they have short-term memory loss? Six month’s earlier they shut down the spying operation and in October of 2016 they approve continued spying. Someone on the FISA court must be compromised and likely have John Roberts giving them cover.
          On August 29, 2018 President Trump tweeted this:
          “Ohr told the FBI it (the Fake Dossier) wasn’t true, it was a lie and the FBI was determined to use it anyway to damage Trump and to perpetrate a fraud on the court to spy on the Trump campaign. This is a fraud on the court. The Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court is in charge of the FISA court. He should direct the Presiding Judge, Rosemary Collier, to hold a hearing, haul all of these people from the DOJ & FBI in there, & if she finds there were crimes committed, and there were, there should be a criminal referral by her.”
          I believe that John Roberts has a problem. A big one.

    • 7delta says:

      “To” him? Not “by” him, right? IMO, nobody got a FISA warrant “on” Roberts. More likely, the Barry Brigade illegally spied on him, then used something to ensure he’d dance to their tune. The way his opinion on the ACA was written was my first clue that “something” happened. The tone was angry…defiant…and he took some generic potshots at both federal and State “government.” He began with a primer on the Constitution, then left bread crumbs throughout on how to take down the ACA, but most people were too angry to look for them. It was the oddest SCOTUS opinion I’d ever read…not that I’ve read every one, but I’ve read a few that span our history. If Roberts was indeed blackmailed, and I think it’s likely, then it explains a lot, including his lack of oversight on the FISA Court abuse.
      In the end, I think a lot depends on what was used against him. Had he done something illegal or was he or his family threatened? And, as we all know, these people weren’t then, or now, above just making something up, then using the power of government and their useful-idiot media to destroy a target. Time will tell.

    • MelH says:

      How did Justice Roberts get to be Chief, with the illegal adoption in his background? Or was he Chief as soon as he was confirmed for the Supreme Court. Did the adoptions occur later, supposedly in secret, or is it just that he was a Democrat so he could break the laws to justify his acts? Can We The People out him? Or is it just my imagination that he is a RINO who can be exposed and lose his position on the Supreme Court?

          McCain had punched his ticket down under a long, long time ago. All the way back to his Viet Nam days when his “showboating” in his plane while waiting to take off from his carrier ship directly caused the deaths of 154 Navy men + scores of serious injuries + severe damage to the ship!
          https://www.theburningplatform.com/2018/09/03/mccain-the-hero-nearly-sunk-an-aircraft-carrier-killed-134-sailors/
          John McCain war hero?? GAG ME! He killed more of US than the Viet Cong!! He should have died in the POW prison camp he was detained in!
          For some icing on McCain’s cake we next look at how he dumped his 1st wife after returning from the war & marrying his 2nd wife Cindy (Hensley) McCain.
          Cindy’s father had deep ties to the AZ mob. In fact her father Jim Hensley went to prison instead of ratting out on his boss Kemper Marley. Marley rewarded Hensley’s loyalty with an AZ Anheuser-Buch distributorship (Hey Jim, This Bud’s for you!).
          https://democraticcore.blogspot.com/2008/08/shady-history-of-cindy-hensley-mccains.html

          And to put some icing on McCain’s cake, he dumps his faithful wife following his return from Viet Nam & hooks up with his 2nd wife Cindy (Hensley) whose father was deep in organized crime.
          Cindy’s family acquired their vast wealth when her father went to prison for refusing to rat on his mob boss (Kemper Marley). As a reward for going to prison & taking 1 for his boss, Marley “rewarded Jim Hensley (Cindy’s father) with an Anheuser-Buch beer distributorship in AZ.

      As Sundance layed out, it won’t be Cris Wray resisting Barr, it will be Coates.
      From what Sundance wrote, and reading the POTUS orders, it sounds like Coates can TRY to make the case to Barr that some things have tovremain classified, but Barr, it seems to me has a simple answer;
      Barr has,top security clearance; Let ME see the document, unredacted. Then YOU make the case to me, as to ehy it shouldn’t be released but IN THE END ITS MY CALL.
      Our concern is them using “its classified” to avoid releasing embarassing info or evidence of criminal wrongdoing, if thatts what Barr see’s, he can call Coates out on it, and release anyway.
      I really don’t think Barr is going to tolerate much crap, and the most Coates can do is delay a little.
      Or, resign and make a public statement condeming Barr and PDJT, and alleging they are endangering Natl. Security.
      And of coarse the answer to thatcis to release; people will be able to SEE whyvtheycwere trying to block release, and that it has -0- to do with Natl. Security, and everything to do with covering for the coup.

        I would just like to point out that it is explicitly against the law to classify anything in order to conceal mistakes or criminality. I’m not sure, but I think that to do so is a federal felony.

          But if at some future time I find you withhold info , or classify info that is not of national security concern, then make no mistake I will indict your ass as co-conspirator in Sedition and Treason against the democratically elected President and Government of the United States of America and I will seek maximum penalties for you along with the others up to and including the death penalty.

          Muller resigned when the RATS, RINOS and RNC failed to to give all of Congress back to the democRATS. Just the House of democrat nutjobs & quacks is NOT enough to take down Trump, they needed a democrat Senate too.

            They are going to do that now. Sundance made that clear and the possibility of impeachment was implicit in the Mueller Report Part II reference to CONGRESS. Don’t think for one minute they didn’t hope for a Democrat House from those “safe” Mid-Terms. They will take action against Trump anyway. They have to given what is at stake. It should have started in 2017 to get the unredacted Judge Collyer decision. You get that before the Mid-Terms, you have them all by the long johns.
            Mueller asked for 6 more months on his grand jury, and got it, two months after the Democrats failed to win both houses of Congress. He was likely told to quit since he only used about 2 months of his 6 months extension. Mueller didn’t give a damn about that election as long as the Democrats got the House they can get an impeachment through if they go that route.
            First, Mueller got his extension.
            Second, Barr was confirmed.
            Mueller announces end of investigation.
            Assange is told he will be expelled from the Ecuadorian embassy in London.
            These guys are masters at the stall. They have about half of their opposition in a passive stance waiting for a show to start, so stalling will only get them half the uproar it could have gotten them. They have lots left in their bag of tricks. Once you start with them, you have to finish. This might let you know how long these bastards have doing this stuff, and for how many generations:

He was sniffing out suspicious mosques in that area, including on in San Bernardino. Holder / obama ordered him to shut down the operation AND to destroy all evidence and collected intel.
        Unfortunately we all now what happened out there.
        For this crime alone, obama, holder and the rest of the ilk responsible for enabling a terrorist attack on USA soil, should rot in prison!

  109. I don’t believe AG Barr will stoop to fight any of them. They either produce promptly at the first request or AG Barr makes a phone call to PDJT and Barr will be dealing with the next in line until he gets 100% cooperation. Mr. Coats and Mr. Wray should be the first to update their resume`s.

That will, guaranteed, get the public’s focus.

    I am so damned mad at former President Bush. WHY hasn’t he warned Trump a long time ago what was going on? You know he knew it along with his father. But all you have ever seen from him was kissing up to Odumbo and his wifey. I don’t think for one minute that this didn’t happen just recently. I think Bush was doing the same thing, no on the same scale as Odumbo. I remember when O came into office they talked about filing charges again Bush and his admin for their wrong-doing while in office. Then one day he and Nancy both said they had decided to not prosecute them. Guess they got to them real fast. So I think this has gone on since back to Clinton to maybe even before that. JMO.

        Two things about the Bushes;
        Firstly remember when they teamed up to rape Haiti, and did those photo ops, saying Barbera had adopted Bill, and George thought of Bill as ‘brother from another mother’?
        There is NO WAY I could stay in the same room with the Clantons, let alone embrace them.
        Second, its obvious illegal mass migration is a method or technique of the NWO Globalist (marxists).
        Now, afghanistan DID had something to do with 911, but as PDJT pointed out just recently, IRAQ had nuffin to do with it.
        But, it and the arab spring, with the Obama/Hillary created Isis triggered a muslim diaspora from ME and africa, up into the EU, where a complicit government, OVER THE OBJECTIONS OF THE CITISENS, insisted on welcoming with open arms.
        In our hemisphere, DRUG CARTELS, using the SAME TACTICS of terrorism, drive 10’s of millions up into the U.S., with a government with policies that encourage it, OVER THE OBJECTIONS OF THE CITISENRY.
        Coincidence? And, LOOK who was in charge of Federal drug interdiction for the U.S. government; Rod Rosenstien.
        Any serious effort to address drugs would mean Drug Cartels, the very people driving people North.
        Hmmm Obama had no success against ISIS, either.
        Illegal immigration isn’t just about votes for Dems, or cheap labor for Reps, its about destroying our country, which is goal of Uniparty, regardless of the letter after their name.

      Reminder: Bush the First, was CIA before he was Vice President. This is regarding the shooting/attempted assassination of President Reagan.
      From Wikipedia (yeah, I know) – originally from NYT (yeah, I know) “Treaster, Joseph B. (April 1, 1981). “A LIFE THAT STARTED OUT WITH MUCH PROMISE TOOK RECLUSIVE AND HOSTILE PATH”. The New York Times. p. A19. The eldest Hinckley child, Scott, 30, is the vice president of the his [sic] father’s company and a friend of Neil Bush, the son of Vice President Bush.

      Good date connection between Mueller indictment and Rogers’ blocking contractor access to the NSA database. Might be that Mueller’s “Russian agents” were FBI contractors.
      A limited hang out? Admit to the hacking but direct attention to “Russian agents’.

    • farrier105 says:

      “On or about April 18, 2016…” is not a definite statement. It either happened on April 18, or it did not. An indictment should contain an exact date that something like this happened. The forensic evidence should have that event recorded with more precision than “on or about…” That is a problem with the entire DNC indictment.

  113. Blind no Longer says:

    Now as I am thinking more and more about what has been exposed, a few things are crystal clear. Obama/Brennan were caught red handed spying on members of his own party and world leaders. Think about it, Feinstein who was spied on wasn’t really that upset, neither was Merkel. Maybe that’s why Merkel decided to turn Germany into a shithole with millions of refugees because Obama had the goods on her. All in the manchurian’s master plan!

    Long before Obama spied on Trump he did the same tomother world leaders both those in politics and religion. It’s been written that He surveilled the former Catholic Pope Benedict and together with the liberal socialist cabal assisted in the selecting the Apostate Leftist Pope Francis.

    Ps. Those that did the illegal searches had to log in to that NSA database system, and guess what, NSA fully tracks and logs searches of all those who did this illegal activity by name, account etc. This grows the list of criminals significantly…Get the audit logs from the system and viola, immediate irrefutable indictments!

    Origin of FBI/NSA database: As best I can tell, the FBI/NSA database, in its weaponized format was conceived and developed by Seisint, Inc. in about 2002. Siesint worked under contract with the FBI to build a huge searchable database of all US citizens. The data initially included banking, automobile, airline, legal, criminal and passport data. It was accessible using HPCC software on a data analytics supercomputer. Seisint was purchased by the LexisNexis subsidiary of Reed Elsevier in 2004 and the FBI work continued. The database was subsequently expanded to include IRS, cell phone, land line, internet and email data.

    The 2010 Tea Party rebellion freaked out the uni-party. At that point the entire government was weaponized to stop We the People from reclaiming the government, from the sleazy cabal.

How will we get any business done around here!” What business was he referring too, and why was he concerned about Jim DeMint, and how were they co-opted?
    Don’t forget Jim DeMint suddenly retired and was made president of The Heritage Foundation.

    As we begin to understand the scale and scope of the abuses during the Obama Administration, it is useful to remember that the NSA database can also be used to determine which Russians were contacted by Chris Steele, and what they did to provide information. IOW, did they contact their previous employers (GRU, FSB, SVR) for instructions and inputs, or did they make the allegations up on their own.
    That would solve the public question of whether or not the Dossier is Russian misinformation. (I’m confident the IC knows and has known for years).

  136. J Gottfred says:

    2012, 2012! This just frosts me to no end.
    Just after Clapper lied to the Senate and Snowden revealed all the capabilities of the NSA programs in March-April 2013, I naively wrote my Senator Feinstein (then chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee) expressing my concern that these massively intrusive NSA “surveillance” programs were just too ripe for abuse in light of the Fourth Amendment. I also complained about Clapper’s prevarications and asked why was he still in his job.
    She wrote me a lovely letter back (which I have posted twice on this site) saying I have nothing to worry about given the safeguards in the program to prevent abuse. She was also writing legislation (which she never did) enshrining these protections against abuse.She did not even address Clapper’s lying under oath on March 13, 2013. I knew we were all screwed the moment I read her response.
    I have been patiently waiting for the day to ram the letter she send me back down her scrawny throat. As soon as a more definitive date in 2012 is revealed is she ever going to hear from me!

    I have an educated guess on the identities of two other contractors in addition to Fusion GPS that were accessing the NSA database after 2012. One that I am fairly confident of is Booz Allen Hamilton. The other might be Pluribus International Corporation. B.A.H. employed Edward Snowden who leaked NSA classified info. in 2013 and they also at one point employed James Clapper. Pluribus employed Reality Winner who leaked NSA classified info. in 2017 which lead to her conviction. Seems likely that Snowden and Winner were given access to the NSA database in order to perform work their respective companies were doing for the U.S. Intelligence community.
