Report: New Horowitz Witness, Likely Kathleen Kavalec, Agrees to Talk to IG Investigators…

In a new report Fox News journalist Catherine Herridge outlines a “reluctant witness” who has recently agreed to cooperate with DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz and his review of potential FISA abuse by the Obama DOJ and FBI.

Fox News – Key witnesses sought for questioning by Justice Department Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz early in his investigation into alleged government surveillance abuse have come forward at the 11th hour, Fox News has learned.

Sources familiar with the matter said at least one witness outside the Justice Department and FBI started cooperating — a breakthrough that came after Attorney General William Barr ordered U.S. Attorney John Durham to lead a separate investigation into the origins of the bureau’s 2016 Russia case that laid the foundation for Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe.

[…] Late-breaking information is known to delay such investigations. Horowitz’s office similarly encountered new evidence late in the process of the IG review into law enforcement decisions during the 2016 Hillary Clinton email investigation.

In this case, additional FISA information came to light late in the process – including October 2016 contact (first reported by The Hill and confirmed by Fox News) between a senior State Department official and a former British spy Christopher Steele, who authored the infamous and salacious anti-Trump dossier.

While the “reluctant witness” is not specifically identified by Herridge in her reporting, as you can see above there is enough background material to identify it is likely former State Department official Kathleen Kavalec.

Kathleen Kavalec was the Deputy Assistant Secretary – Department of State, Bureau of European and Eurasian Affairs, serving under Victoria Nuland and covered Russia as part of her State Dept. duties.  Kavalec was contacted by Christopher Steele prior to the FISA application on Carter Page being sought by the FBI and DOJ.  Kavalic wrote a series of notes and emails to the FBI undercutting the dossier central claims made by Steele.

The original reporting on the Kavalec emails and Steele contact was done by John Solomon.  Here’s the basic background that explains why Inspector General Michael Horowitz would be interested in interviewing Kathleen Kavalec.

According to a leak provided to John Solomon, State Department information -deconstructing Chris Steele- was presented to FBI Agent Peter Strzok a week before they used Steele’s sketchy dossier to prop up the FBI FISA application on Carter Page.

John Solomon – […] The officials declined to say what the FBI did with the information about Steele after it reached Strzok’s team, or what the email specifically revealed. A publicly disclosed version of the email has been heavily redacted in the name of national security.

While much remains to be answered, the email exchange means FBI supervisors knew Steele had contact with State and had reason to inquire what he was saying before they sought the warrant. If they had inquired, agents would have learned Steele had admitted to Kavalec he had been leaking to the news media, had a political deadline of Election Day to get his information public and had provided demonstrably false intelligence in one case, as I reported last week. (read more)

It’s almost guaranteed the reason Kavelec’s email to the FBI was redacted is specifically because Ms. Kavelec used her State Dept. portal to check on travel records and noted the “Michael Cohen in Prague” story was false.  Kavalec would have easy access to State Dept. travel records.

Chris Steele told Ms. Kavalec about Trump’s attorney Michael Cohen traveling to Prague to communicate/coordinate with the Russians.  Kavalec made note of the claim:

(Page #11, pdf link)

Michael Cohen has denied ever traveling to Prague.  Special Counsel Robert Mueller has supported Cohen on this issue; passport records show Cohen has never traveled to Prague. It appears Ms. Kavalec checked her State Dept. travel records and confirmed the same.

However, the CURRENT FBI wants to hide Ms. Kavalec’s warning/notification that Steele was delivering false information about Cohen traveling to Prague:

(Page #2, pdf source – Kavalec email)

So put it all together.  Chris Steele was producing the dossier for the FBI to use.  Steele told State Dept. official Kavalec about the same information in his dossier.  The State Dept. checked, and found out the information was false. The State Dept. warned the FBI.  However, the FBI ignored the warning; and a week later used the dossier in the application for a retroactive Title-1 surveillance warrant against U.S. Person Carter Page.

To cover themselves; and because the claim was so central to the purpose of the Steele Dossier; the FBI then redacted the State Dept. warning about Michael Cohen traveling to Prague in the public email from the State Department.

Worse yet, in the application itself the FBI said the information proving Carter Page was an agent of a foreign power came from the State Dept:

(Page #2 Carter Page FISA Application – pdf source)

The false claim about Cohen’s travel to Prague has been discussed here for well over a year. [January 2018]

So, the question is:  Why is the FBI so damned committed to this Steele Dossier?

That answer is simple.  In October 2016, they needed the dossier to get the FISA warrant.  They needed the 2016 FISA warrant to cover-up for all of the unauthorized and illegal surveillance activity that was already underway throughout 2016.

The Russian election interference narrative; the use of Joseph Mifsud, Stefan Halper, the London and Australian embassy personnel; Erika Thompson, Alexander Downer, U.S. DIA officials; everything around Crossfire Hurricane; and everything after to include the construct of the Steele Dossier; all of it was needed for the creation of an ‘after-the-fact‘  plausible justification to cover-up what Mike Rogers discovered in early 2016, AND the downstream unmasked records that existed in the Obama White House SCIF.

Fusion GPS was not hired in April 2016 to research Donald Trump.  The intelligence community was already doing surveillance and spy operations. They already knew everything about the Trump campaign.

The Obama intelligence community needed Fusion GPS to give them a justification for pre-existing surveillance operations.  Fusion fulfilled that objective by contracting for the Steele Dossier.

That’s why the FBI, and later the Mueller team, were/are so strongly committed to, and defending, the formation of the Steele Dossier and its dubious content.  Once they had the dossier in hand the FBI proceeded forward for an ex post facto FISA warrant.

The goal was surveillance authority. The FBI used the Carter Page FISA application. The FBI already knew Carter Page; essentially Carter Page was irrelevant, what they needed was the dossier in the system, and the FISA authority as justification to execute the “insurance policy”.

    Just give me Brennan’s head on a platter and ValJar’s a$$ in a sling. We’ll never get Obama or Hilliary. Getting Brennan and ValJar would be exposure enough for the history books without actually having to go through all the political hoops. We need it to happen soon, real soon though. People are starting to believe there is no Justice, no peace in this whole twisted scheme.
    As was stated here in an earlier comment, it appears now that the Patriot Act is cover for illegal activities going back to at least one of the Dem’s all-time great heroes, FDR. If even partially true, it just emphasizes that there is way too much power in the FBI/DoJ complex and way too many opportunities for abuse, especially as some administrations were more and more prone to abject corruption.

      Usually an optimist, I have begun to doubt that Barr/Durham/Horowitz are going to do anything more than protect the institutions. I just think that all the players are threatening to burn down the gov’t if they are indicted. These people were smart enough to get the goods on too many people and events before they got booted. McCabe said outright that he isn’t going down alone.

      Breaking one more law to save their a$$es if well worth the risk to them. Like the guy wanted for murder running a red light trying to get away.

        It is hard to believe at this point that they are doing anything more than trying to run out the clock on Trump’s term and hoping that a deep state compliant socialist wins in 2020.
        Heaven forbid that happens, but there are two months between election day and inauguration day that POTUS must then use to put all of this out in the sunlight. Americans need to know the truth, and the socialists must be held to account.

              I understand what you are saying, but don’t we the people have a stake in how this ends. What are we helpless sheep. I say if we are going to get no justice, if the deep state is going to get to continue the reign, we we are headed toward inevitable control by the nuts in the democrat party, let burn the fuck3r down. Let fight it out. Maybe we lose. Maybe we end up with a different United States, maybe a lot of things, but at least we will know we did not die on our knees.

              We have the potential to tell the crooks their time is running out, and if they don’t obey our will, we are going to bring the full weight of millions of well armed patriots down on them. But we can’t get organized. Where is the on white knight? I hope it’s Trump. I hope and pray that he understands it now or never.

              In my view, I would like to see all veterans, those returning from war who hold a Phd. in Urban Warfare, organize the rest of us into a force to be reckoned with.

          justice delayed is justice denied.
          This whole reveal (of what is now KNOWN) is taking too long.
          It IS eroding the ordinary citizens confidence whether rule of law exists and in the integrity of law enforcement.

          This is dangerous for a DEMOCRACY which requires rule of law to exist and to be seen to work.

          I personally have lost confidence in US Law. If it existed HRC would be in jail for e-mail scandal , Comey/McCabe/Strozk and Page for Sedition and Jussie Smollet for a race hoax.

          The Dems/Deep State and their funders (Soros)+ MSM own the LAW.
          Trials are conducted by the MSM (CNN etc.) , on our TVs not court rooms.
          And CNN signals to the DOJ who is to be found innocent and who is to be found guilty.
          Sad but true.
          The whole We The People thing is a fantasy and POTUS (God Bless Him) does not have the power or support to change that. Other means will prove necessary at some point.

            Whether you like it or not, Dem leadership must be onboard with the reveal, or this country will be torn apart.

            When Brennan, and Clapper, and Comey say that declassification is a threat to our Democracy, they aren’t kidding.

            This could bring the country down if it’s not handled correctly. Do not be the cause of rising tension. If you believe Trump’s presidency was divinely inspired, then know that this has already been handled, we just have to find out how 🙂

            Watergate was in June 1972, people were locked up initially in April 1973 and Nixon resigned on August 9, 1974. But Watergate was different in that people confessed in public and there was an insider, Deep Throat. Until Barr, this soft coup attempt was investigated by Congress committees that were not bipartisan and an inspector general who had no power to force people to talk or to charge individuals. The Mueller investigation was not bipartisan and did not follow leads to the Obama Admin. Under these circumstances, although much to my regret, this is like pulling hens teeth as we say in rural America.
            I lived Watergate in my late 20s and wanted swift actions in Watergate that never came as fast as I wanted, but the investigation was largely bipartisan with a Republican President, Ford, going after Republicans for their crimes; 69 indicted and 49 confessing or found guilty.
            This time the Democrats and Rinos are seemly working with the cover up. Funny how in Watergate the Republicans worked for the good of the country by convincing Nixon first to release the tape evidence he had and then for him to resign; not so the Democrats now when the shoe is on the other foot. It is party first and screw the country.

        If it isn’t burned down how much longer can we go on like this? Long enough for the rotten perps to exit the country? Long enough to run out any statutes of limitations? Long enough for us to finally realize, without doubt, that this no longer of the people, but the people, for the people?

        We are already about as polarized as we can get. In time we will give up the notion this is a unique and free country.

        Unless there is justice for this the most egregious, unique, in your face, national level political scandal in our history we will soon become so cynical that there will be zero trust in our fed gvt, and the DoJ/FBI in particular. We will be in another generation forced (through passivity, exhaustion, clever msm indoctrination…) into full totalitarian.

          I think William Barr is the man of the hour. He is an absolutely brilliant jurist, excruciatingly careful, and will not bring a case forward unless and until it is airtight. I do think the evidence is there to successfully prosecute a lot of people. Will it go as high as Obama? Probably not, in all honesty. He’s most likely covered his butt exceedingly well, nothing on tape with this Nixon. Hillary may well skate, also, thanks to the noxious, sanctimonious Comey. Others are far more vulnerable.

          I pray God the horrific misuse of power in this case will come to light and those who used it ill will pay the piper. These-off-the-rails officials need to be prosecuted in courts of law, the agencies set to right, and our faith in them hopefully restored over time.

          Speaking of prayer, I think we should be including Barr, in particular, and Durham and others in our prayers that the unhinged gangster left won’t kill or somehow do them harm. If this great nation is to continue to survive and thrive, the nest of vipers that created this appalling mess have to be brought to justice, and there are few who are brave and unsoiled enough to do it. Barr is one. He’s just a honest cop, and we really, really need one right now. God keep him safe.

        The problem for Trump and anyone who wants to ‘drain the swamp’, is that it is almost all swamp. 90% of the higher echelon of D.C. have committed some crime or something very unethical. They all know it, and they all know that they all know it. The only time a D.C. rat gets in a trap is when they go against their own, i.e. Senator Menendez who publicly stated the Iran Deal was insane. Obama then unleashed the DOJ and he was indicted. Any one of them would be in the same boat if they go against the team. The team in this case is Dems and Repubs who hated Trump. BOTH are involved in this coup attempt. For that reason alone, the true scope and any true punishment is impossible for D.C. to reveal. We are right that they are running out the clock. But also they are scheming. They have a very loose tightrope to walk. They must pretend to care about preserving Constitutional government, while actually preserving the corrupt global business that they are all in for their own prosperity. History may catch them someday in a far future. But they will never swing from the rope they deserve. Sorry. Prove me wrong.

        In today’s society everyone wants everything to done by yesterday and when it comes to justice being cleaned up and served upon those who’s careers are/where spent doing just that – right or wrong – and even though most of us who read and have been following this information the fact is most people don’t really understand what has really occurred and how far and wide it has spread. They just don’t have the time to do so let alone read any further than the headlines when they are just trying to cope with day to day life. Most people just put politics on the back-burner until September of a Presidential election year.

        When you have the leadership of the FBI, DoJ as well as members of the NSA and DoS including members of the CIA community or spies in general/foreign spies and their agencies not to mention all the leaking by the Deep-State bureaucracy, sub-contractors all in on this effort even holding meetings in the Whitehouse with at least the Vice President in attendance with a time-line going back to just after the 2012 Presidential election if not reaching right into the Oval Office and the 1st African-American President. Barr better be sure to have all his ducks in a row with all the evidence he needs to tie them all up. If we expect HUGE actions from him he can expect the full-force of media onslaught that will surely come back his way. IF JUSTICE is our goal the restoration of Justice must also be part of it. I have faith that it will happen because Trump is the actual Chief law enforcement officer of the federal government and Barr as a private citizen observed what was happening and stepped up to right the ship. While some of the players will undoubtedly walk free it will only be because they turned-States-evidence against someone higher up or closer to the actual target.

        The wheels of Justice turn slowly – be patient.

      But you CANNOT prosecute Brennan and ValJar without damning Hillary and, vastly more importantly, OBAMA. No one, NO ONE has the cojones to indict the first negro president of the United States.

      Ergo, the conundrum. If it is axiomatic that Obama CANNOT be indicted for his many crimes, then who can? Each and every lower level criminal would look upward to the person(s) who gave them instructions or authority to commit their own criminal acts.

      Isolating any one of them (take your pick – Strzok, Page, McCabe, Brennan, Comey, Lynch, the list goes on and on…) is essentially impossible. There is only one logical conclusion – NONE of them can ever be held to account for their crimes. Barr is therefor himself a criminal for obstructing justice (unless he suddenly surprises us).

      A whole lot of faith has been placed in Barr. But what is the actual evidence? Barr sat silently as Mueller put forth his execrable “report”, turning centuries of American jurisprudence on its head. “Guilt must be presumed unless proof of innocence can be established.” Even if no crimes can be officially charged, it is a prosecutor’s responsibility to inform the public of the assumed guilt. WHERE WAS BARR WHEN THIS WAS HAPPENING?????????????

      Why is Barr demurring to the “Inspector General”, WhoreO’witch? If a student is shot on school grounds do the police suspend their investigation until the school principal has concluded his? Nonsense. Here’s MY presumption of guilt. BARR is guilty of obstructing justice until he proves otherwise, and it’s NOT looking good for justice.

If we are, as a society, afraid to bring charges against one special negro, then we will be held race-hostage for the rest of eternity.

        Put on our Big Boy Pants, get ready for race riots the likes which haven’t been seen since the 1960s, and let’s deal with this for once and for all. Get it out in the open… If we don’t address the problem, it’s like bad meat in the refrigerator– The longer you leave it in there, the worse it’s gonna get.

        Otherwise, our choice is to live under that two-tiered justice system that we all rail against. Which choice is more unbearable, in the long run?

        I can see them damning Obama and Hillary, and well deserved that would be.

        Otherwise I think they’ll skate, unfortunately. Obama because he’s covered his butt extremely well, I would guess, and because he’s worshipped like a demigod. None of his staff will turn on him for that reason…and because they don’t want to end up floating face down in some canal. Hillary will dodge a bullet because the obnoxious, obsequious Comey gave her cover. Luckily, she’s morphing into an elderly, largely powerless has-been which she finds excruciatingly painful, and we find enjoyable and well deserved.

    To me, the Kavelec email reads as if she’s been supplied a narrative (the “insurance policy” narrative?) and asked to vet it through her sources. There’s a lot more in it than I recall being in the Steele dossier. Alfa Bank and encrypted computer communications with Trump’s campaign, e.g. I remember Hillary Clinton making this allegation about that time (October 2016). A Russian plant in the DNC? I don’t recall that one, or anybody ever being identified (Seth Rich?). Payments from the Russian Consulate to hackers and operatives? I recall nothing about them in Mueller’s Report.

    If my memory is correct, then it is as if she’s working with really raw material much of which turned out not to withstand scrutiny. She’s attempting to winnow out the losing allegations, doing her job for the Team, but she left a record. Then HRC loses, Brennan/Clapper/Comey launch their efforts, and the process unfolds, with the ability to clean out the record fading away. When it became clear Mueller’s team could not show collusion, which was apparently from the very beginning of the Trump Administration, they just settled into a long charade to unleash Weissman on various vulnerable Trump team members, indicting for process crimes, threatening their families with the same, trying to squeeze them into framing Trump.

    Now we come back to the record she created, and how does she cooperate without disclosing that the whole narrative was invented by HRC team members “to slaughter Donald for his bromance with Putin,” but every strand of it keeps tracking back to its roots in the DNC and Obama Administration operatives and their combined campaign strategy/insurance policy: set up Trump as Putin’s stooge. The Page FISA, and the outreach to the Five Eyes, were just “other” ways to spy on Trump, plus with FISA and the Steele dossier, a clumsy effort to legitimize all their prior crimes.

      “they just settled into a long charade to unleash Weissman on various vulnerable Trump team members, indicting for process crimes, threatening their families with the same, trying to squeeze them into framing Trump.” Rather they (Mueller, Weismann and team) were trying to goad Trump into firing the S.C. in order for the democrat impeachment efforts to have any hope of success. When they had no “obstruction case” they pushed the “collusion” case. Key point IMHO, they knew early on there was no collusion and getting someone to frame Trump would be high risk if back firing. For Mueller’s team of 13 angry democrats, the only possible way to succeed in their soft coup was through a political action (impeachment) by the likes of Schiff, Nadler & Schumer and Pilosi. Remember how many, even many Republicans, come on line publicly stating they would be protecting Mueller if POTUS fires him? Proving this will be much harder for AG Barr’s team as it will be necessary to get an insider on the corrupt team to flip. Trump never took the bait….so they moved on to doing as much political damage as possible with the support of the media.

    So Chris Steele has been banging the newest possible witness, Tati(y)an(n)a, or however you want to spell it. Years ago, I decided I’d better read something by Leo Tolstoy; he was supposed to be some amazingly eclectic writer. After 600 or so pages of Anna Karenina, I finally put it down. Thought it nothing more than a well written soap opera and only read as much I did out of indecision and goal to finish. Never even considered War and Peace…

    Now we’re onto our second set of lovers, this time from abroad, conspiring to take out our Potus. Reading about these setbacks (not sure I view them as such) is expected, but sure is conjuring up memories of Tolstoy.

    Everyday I see our President getting stronger and stronger, more comfortable in his office and more knowledgable of the D.C. way. There was no way some real estate mogul from Queens was going to walk into Washington and arrest, try and hang all those treasoness traitors in 150 days. Almost miraculously, he has allowed all of those lettered agencies to expose themselves for what they really are not, that is – anything American. Civilly, it really does have to be “we the people” who demand these agencies be budgeted out of existence and Potus has been excellent in winning my support. Hell, if these tariffs are bringing in as much $ as he keeps saying their producing, I say keep them in place, use the proceeds to fund the governent and shut down the irs as well. Seems to me anyway, it’s the only way to ensure fairness from one taxpayer to another…. I’m hopeful General Barr was the wiser one to accept the olive branch Potus handed him to preserve the doj. It doesn’t appear Wray thinks like Barr. Rant over.

      Well, every day for the past two and a half years I have seen “our President” exhibit a shocking level of bumbling incompetence. Trump was billed as a top notch executive but he looks and acts like a clown. He spent TWO YEARS tweeting about his dissatisfaction with Jeff Sessions but did… nothing. As the founder of a very successful business myself I can assure you that TWO YEARS of putting up with a traitorous and very damaging inferior executive is… INSANE.

      Now I have to put up with the likes of you. People whose heart is in the right place but simply cannot face the truth. Trump is not now and never was up to the task of running the country. He promise us two things – he would solve the illegal alien invasion problem and he would drain the swamp. He has not only done neither, he has not even tried.

      Pretending that DJT is a “VSG” and that his brilliant game plan is to lose and lose and lose in order to give these criminals a chance to hang themselves is worse than childish. Just ask yourself one question – What would have been the result if Trump had put an effective AG in office (like maybe Joe DiGenova) and the entire criminal conspiracy had been brought to light and the felons were at this moment awaiting trial?

        Thank you for understanding my reference to Tolstoy. The only non-reactionary activity of our government is increasing taxes; otherwise it’s mortar and pestle to unforeseen consequences the results of which we see here today. What I see: 1) 535 members of Congress wholly abdicating their responsibilities and only agreeing collectively upon an increase of their pay, pensions and health care; 2) a judiciary aiding and abetting the congressional abdication followed by hollow assertions of its last word over the executive branch; and 3) a massive centralization of what was once considered separate State’s rights and powers. I then ask myself, how does a dictatorship not eventually emerge?, will the 1st and 2nd Amendments carry the day?

        Jobs first. Our Potus also campaigned that he would be the greatest jobs producer this country has ever seen, he promised to restucture unfair trade and cut taxes. He does appear diligent and making progress toward those ends. Your noted TWO YEARS of unimaginable delay is teethgritting. My overwhelming pessismism to any adminstrative agency correction or judicial satisfaction was initially met mostly with disinterest/helplessness by my elders. Now that we see this effing out of control immigration crisis and runaway adminstrative state, I remain optimisitic Potus will exercise his C-I-C powers with the interest and blessing of those same elders now more hopeful/properous because of jobs.

        I pray my naivete is not a failure by Potus to also rebuild, as well, the order of the military (evidently absent on the non-military side) and earn the respect of its hierarchy through his method of decisionmaking and display of Job’s patience. Otherwise, its back to Federalist Paper No. 48.

        You are wrong, and complaining unjustifiably. Once he was confirmed, Trump COULD NOT get rid of Sessions without a) leaving the DOJ completely in the hands of Obama appointees, and b) having Sessions’ dismissal open wide the door to impeachment. Remember, the Rep. Senate flatly told him they would not confirm anyone else to the position. You don’t have people in your job telling you that they will gladly fire you with ignominy if you take a perfectly legal action with regard to one of your employees. Trump did. Even his supposed friends started out as neutral at best, and deeply opposed at worst. It has been a long and difficult path to getting the Republican Party even as accepting of him as they are today.

So I’m wondering why this breaking news now that she’s a “reluctant witness”?

          I sense a little narrative engineering, some messaging to the rouge’s gallery AND a possible leak to diffuse the last minute court filing re the Archey Declarations. (Just like the Flynn indictment was followed in a matter of hours by the Strzok/Page text message release). The timing in this case is tight, but the response is proportionate IMHO.

      I have considerable caution about characterizing Rogers as a hero. His NSA expressed “moderate confidence” in the Obama Administration’s December 2016 “ICA” that was designed to undermine the legitimacy of Trump’s election and to goad and entrap the President-elect into — as they saw and planned it — violating the Logan Act. Why couldn’t Rogers have refused to join the charade and said “no confidence,” or at least “far from sufficient confidence” to justify a public pronouncement and silly sanctions.

      We don’t really know how much Rogers told our President-elect in November, 2016. I would think as NSA Chief (and particularly after January 20, 2017) he could have done much to abort the schemes of the “small group.” Did he sufficiently warn POTUS and his new Administration? Did he do anything close to what he might have? I don’t know enough to say.

      Rogers is certainly an outsider to the cabal. I’ll need to know a lot more to make a judgment on whether he’s a hero.

    I can’t help but think that on the night of Trump’s election win that Hillary was going to challenge the election results for years. Podesta (Hillary was too drunk) used that to make a no-prosecution deal with Trump, then Hillary back stabbed Trump with the in place ‘Insurance Policy.’

    That is what I have suspected since day #1. Hillary would never have given up so fast. Podesta made the sane deal.

    Banana Republic with veneer comes to mind. Nothing new here, same old same old power plays, but now without bullets, hatchets, poison, or bombs.

    Barr is a fixer and navigate the best he can, put the best lipstick on this fat ugly pig.

    DO NOT get your hopes knotted around ‘Justice.’ This all about power plays and image of civil government. Magna Carta has long been run over like a possum in the road by those in power.

    Their objective is to keep us cowed. I am as disappointed as the last commenter, and have followed it from day one. Crawl back into our caves, like the lepers we are. Often I sit down and say will any of this really truly affect me personally. The answer is no. I lead such a quiet, over-taxed, nondescript life. I was shut down in the Tea Party Movement. I guess this is no different.

    apparently something happened that persuaded kavalec , if she is the witness, to come forward. and we all know it isn’t because of righteous indignation.

    We have no incentive to obey the law if so many high-level criminals can break it and get away with it. William Barr cannot save a system this thoroughly corrupt by a wholesale cover-up.

      You have to keep in mind that this problem has been festering for decades and we haven’t helped by continually voting into office grifters and traitors. Utah just put Romney into a Senate seat for 6 years, do you think he’s going to help the MAGA agenda? Arizona elected a Democrat. We lost the House majority in Nov 2018. Shameful voting. It’s our own fault. We can’t expect a few good people at the top to fix all of the problems for us while we continue to vote like idiots. I have said a few times it’s like expecting a chef to make a gourmet meal from the contents of a dumpster.

      WE can help to save the system, but we have to vote intelligently to do that. And it’s going to take decades.

    I’ve often wondered who in this cast of characters would be most likely to flip and turn States evidence. So, I ask myself who has the most to lose? Who has the least political clout? Who is the most vulnerable? Who has the least financial resources? And finally, who among them has information worth bargaining for ie. an immunity agreement? There is one name that stands out above all the rest and that’s Lisa Page.
    She has two young children that could grow to adulthood seeing their mother behind bars and that can be a powerful persuader for any prosecutor. She was an attorney in the FBI with no real political connections. She has no book deals in the offing and little GoFundMe potential unlike McCabe and Comey. She doesn’t spend her off hours pontificating on CNN and elsewhere like Brennan and Clapper, and she was right in the middle of all of the malfeasance occurring within the FBI.
    She knows what Strzok was doing in London, who the lures are and how many. She laid out the “insurance policy” we’ve heard so much about in Andy’s office. She has first hand knowledge of McCabe’s involvement in the FISA application and his work with Yates on the same. She was in the office with McCabe and Rosenstein and she was one of the first FBI people to be directly involved in the Special Counsel’s investigation. I can’t think of a single player in this whole scheme who has more to lose both personally and professionally. I don’t know of anyone who has a more intimate knowledge of the facts in this case. If I were a prosecutor in this case she’s the weak link I would focus on.

      Yes… and when she went before the Intell committee ( I think it was.. maybe the select, I forget).. the GOP members hinted they were very satisfied with her testimony and her helpfulness. Unlike Strzok.

      There was a different tenor to her testimony at any rate.

      It’s obvious from Page’s emails this is one smart lady and probably a decent lawyer…for what that’s worth..and she damn well knows what the penalty for lying can be. I certainly wouldn’t categorize her demeanor during her testimony as contrite, but she definitely lied less than most of the witnesses up to that point. Now that she’s retired she’s definitely outside the FBI or Justice Department for that matter, so I’m keeping my options open. Yeah it could be someone from State like Kavalec, but it could also be anyone from any other department or none at all, the reporting doesn’t really clarify that point in any meaningful way.

    The article says “at least” one witness — “outside” DOJ and FBI. Kavelec is an educated guess as to the one, but only that. Here’s hoping there’s more than one new cooperating witness AND that they reside(d) in the CIA and/or the NSA (reporting to Susan Rice).

    It would also be nice if Rosemary Collyer and/or other FISA court personnel were involved (the “reluctant witness” label would certainly apply to them).

    I’m beginning to believe this story was leaked to Fox News for a purpose.

    That purpose was to bring Barr, Durham, and Horowitz ( whose names had disappeared from public view and discussion) back into the public spot light. Kind of like, “Hey, we’re still working here, so, don’t give up on us.” The latter, I think, was occurring.

    So they leak that the DOJ boys are looking at some big stuff; but provide no names. Just some vague reference to a “reluctant witness” (or witnesses) and what Durham’s work may be leading to.

    Pretty thin gruel when you get right down to it.

    Nevertheless, the leak has brought life back into what was looking like another investigation destined for oblivion.

    I think we are running out of time. All according to their plan. For sure evidence is being destroyed. ( how much we don’t know)

    For sure the most important are redacted and unavailable.

    Brennan still has his security clearance. NOTHING has happened except some information about the corruption being reported to us the sheep. But that’s it!

    Some information is out! So far that’s all we got to show for it.

      We all know, the NSA Database has most of this information. Such as the missing text messages. The question here, could be, why haven’t they accessed this information needed or have they? What is the stalling, all about?

    They can play this game forever!!!!

    The Horowitz report about his research will not be ready before 2020 election, just like the Muller dossier was just an excuse to buy time and keep harassing… it gave Democrats the house. It worked!

    Delay tactics, run the clock. Let Weissmann “testify” so they can start new investigations and continue to harass innocence people. Perhaps they will go after Baron Trump next.

    They need new sound bites for their propagandists. Horowitz is doing his part. Delay delay delay, no leaks… just delay and delay. Another month another new information will come out and “force” Horowitz to delay again… 2020 comes around, mass voting fraud and extreme Marxist propaganda will do the trick. Silence the opposition and unleash the fake news.

    What ever happened to Nunes’ criminal referrals?

    With all the evidence already out, why the delay?

    Let me guess… next week they will throw us another bone to keep us from asking questions. Another tick tock and…. then, nothing!

    Solomon will uncover more documents and…. Horowitz will act all surprised and will get start looking in to it.

    We will learn even more disturbing details just to make us mad. Then the deep state will basically be featured on American Pravda laughing at our faces and selling their books.

    This has gotten so old.

    Don’t believe everything you read dept:
    From an Susan Reid email sent to herself on Inauguration Day on her way out of the WH:
    I was present in a meeting [redacted : of all the conspirators from the DOJ, CIA, and FBI] where the President instructed all of the DOJ, FBI, and CIA people present that everything had to be done by the book. [redacted; They replied that they had rewritten the book as an insurance policy and we all had a good laugh]
