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]

              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.

            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 .

(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.

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.

      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.

    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.

    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.

        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.

    • 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.

      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.

      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.

    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.

    My bet has been for some time that Obama won the 2012 election as a result of meddling that was already going on prior. I know the ‘contender’ was hardly desirable, but who was ‘knocked out’ due to scandal prior (the Republicans) through something leaking or some accusation. Was a viable contender to Obama ruined before the final race as a result of some internal plot like what was attempted on Trump?

      Thanks Sundance for re-posting. I was just arguing with my husband about what declassification can mean to our knowledge. He accused me of falling for conspiracy theories. I accuse him of being brainwashed by MSNBC (he listens 22 hours a day, sometimes more). I’ll give him copy of this and see if he reads. It’s hard not to talk politics with him anymore, but impossible for last 3 years or so.

      • I have the same problem with my husband. He laughed at me for believing conspiracy theories. But once the Mueller report came out it truly dawned on him that he’s the one who believed in conspiracy theories. He was a never Trumper and voted for Hillary but L think he’s voting for Trump next time.

    We need more courage like this below, where the woman used by Halper and ‘Sir Richard Dearlove’ as a so called honeytrap as hit back. Dearlove is the former head of the British Secret Service – their CIA, is there any wonder he was working alongside Halper to bring down Flynn? 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’.

    Sunlight is the only thing that will sort this out. Barr must be able to be brave and NOT back down for the sake of justice. He has to make a decision on what road he is going to take. That of Justice or that of ‘coverup and damage control.

    I understand the Documents / de-classification..

    But….Here is the question:

    If these people were gathering all this information, everyday….for years…it also has to be on a computer / computers somewhere…All these directive and files must be on computers

    Where are those computers?…Would they still exist?

    If so, even if erased….can all of the information be recovered?

    Can you just imagine:

    Where is Judge Scalia going to be on a certain date?.

    “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.”

      Montgomery warns in 2015.

      And so the bad guys figure two work-arounds:

      1. Open an investigation of foreigners, and trip across Americans along the way.
      2. Examine USA data through a foreign intelligence ally.

    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?


    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.

            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?

This is like Turning Point level stuff… and if Barr CLEANS HOUSE and effectuates a TOTAL RESET for that which needs resetting… Hoo boy… that’s quite the legacy. Of course, it WILL have to be a team effort. :^)

    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.


  48. “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.

    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
