Report: James Comey Had Designated FBI Spy in White House…

Paul Sperry has an interesting article today citing anonymous sources in/around the Inspector General Michael Horowitz investigation.  Much of the information within the report is confirmation of prior research.  However, the citations of FBI James Comey implanting an FBI operative into the White House is very specific:

Real Clear Investigations – At the same time Comey was personally scrutinizing the president during meetings in the White House and phone conversations from the FBI, he had an agent inside the White House working on the Russia investigation, where he reported back to FBI headquarters about Trump and his aides, according to officials familiar with the matter.

The agent, Anthony Ferrante, who specialized in cyber crime, left the White House around the same time Comey was fired and soon joined a security consulting firm, where he contracted with BuzzFeed to lead the news site’s efforts to verify the Steele dossier, in connection with a defamation lawsuit.

Knowledgeable sources inside the Trump White House say Comey carved out an extraordinary new position for Ferrante, which allowed him to remain on reserve status at the FBI while working in the White House as a cybersecurity adviser. (keep reading)

Part of this is predictable (the overall scheme), and part of this is directly connected to the outrage trap (the justification).  Lots of people fall into the outrage trap.

If the DOJ and the FBI genuinely believed Donald Trump was a hostile agent of a foreign government, their proclaimed justification for their by the book endeavors; and if the DOJ/FBI actually had reasonable evidence to support that investigative position; then everything FBI Director James Comey is now accused of doing would be justified.

The key words are “reasonable” and “justifiable”.

As we have discussed before,… generating public outrage over the investigative outcomes is a favored chaff-and-countermeasure approach by DC politicians and swamp protectors.  See Benghazi, Fast-n-Furious, IRS targeting, etc.

You’ll note the origination stories/motives behind each aforementioned corrupt activities remained out of the public discussion, while all outrage was focused on the ‘outcome’.

In 2013 everyone wanted to talk about the Benghazi compound attack, but no-one wanted to ask about why the State Department and CIA were there in the first place.

In 2014 everyone was willing to talk about the IRS refusing tax-exempt status for conservative political groups, but no-one wanted to talk about why the DOJ originally requested CD-ROM’s from the IRS “Schedule-B’s”. etc.

In 2019 the FBI and DOJ would love to talk about planting bugs in the Trump White House; putting FBI assets in/around the Trump oval office; and being forced to lie to President-elect Trump etc, because all of that type of activity only highlights the FBI’s diligence and magnanimity given the risk of having a Russian agent as President of The United States.

That’s their justification position, and it makes for splendidly good DC media coverage and pundit pearl clutching.  Oh those poor souls in the DOJ/FBI trying earnestly to protect our country…. well, you know the routine.

What they don’t want to discuss is the origin…. or the evidence to support their predicate position(s).   That’s where the weaponization of the intelligence apparatus is located.

That origination aspect is what the DOJ and FBI do not want to talk about.

As a result, when it comes to the James Comey aspect, we need to start by demanding the declassification of the Comey memos; and the release of the Archey declarations that describe the Comey memos.

Mueller’s lead FBI agent David Archey wrote a series of declarations to the DC court describing the content of the memos and arguing why they should be kept classified.

On July 5th (around 3 weeks ago) the U.S. Department of Justice -under Attorney General Bill Barr- while waiting until the last minute (28 days since prior ruling), filed a motion [full pdf below] to block the release of the Archey Declarations, despite a June 7th court order demanding their release.

Again, if transparency in conduct of the DOJ and FBI during 2016 is the expressed goal of Attorney General Bill Barr, then his current department fighting to keep descriptions of FBI memorandum hidden from public review runs exactly counter to that intent.

This DOJ activity does not bode well for a narrative of Bill Barr is an honest broker.  This is an example of how to cover-up material that is damaging to the institution.

To be fair, Attorney General Bill Barr may not be aware the United States Department of Justice Civil Division, Federal Programs Branch, is fighting this court ordered release.

However, the DOJ Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Division is Jody Hunt.  That name might be familiar to you because Jody Hunt was Jeff Sessions former chief-of-staff.

Asst. AG Jody Hunt most certainly knows his office is fighting to keep the FBI descriptions of the Comey memos hidden from the public.  Despite the original FOIA lawsuit coming from CNN -vs- DOJ, there is no-one covering this story.   Here is the July 5th DOJ filing.

Here’s the background on the June 7th, 2019, ruling as we shared at the time:

Judge Boasberg was deciding what could be publicly released, meaning current redactions removed, based on two connected events: (#1) The content of the Comey Memos; and (#2) the declarations of lead FBI agent for Robert Mueller’s special counsel, David Archey, in describing those memos.  CNN had filed a lawsuit to gain full access.

[Note: the descriptions of the Comey memos by FBI agent David Archey are known as the “Archey Declarations” – Read Here.]

For those who may not be aware, there are so many memos (dozens) when assembled they seem to make up an actual diary of moment-by-moment events, during the FBI investigation of Donald Trump, as documented by FBI Director James Comey.

♦ In the issue of the redactions within the Comey Memos, the judge doesn’t remove them. Some are ordered to be removed, some are approved to stay in place.  The Comey memo aspect, and the redaction decision, is basically a splitting of the baby 50/50.  It will be interesting, but meh, maybe not too much detail. – CNN ARTICLE

(Pdf Link)

The issues argued by the FBI lawyers to keep the Comey memos hidden surround sources and methods.  The judge generally agreed to the potential for compromise, but also outlined several sections of redactions within the Comey memos where that argument doesn’t hold up.  [The judge has read the fully unredacted memo content.]

♦ However, on the issue of the Archey Declarations there’s an opportunity for some very interesting information to surface. Here’s an example of currently existing redactions within the Archey Declarations:

And stunningly, yes, STUNNINGLY, Judge Boasberg has ordered the Archey declarations to be fully released to the public WITHOUT REDACTIONS. See pages 34 and 35 of the ruling.

That means all those black boxes in the example above would have been removed and CNN would have been allowed to see the fully unredacted content of the declarations by FBI Agent David Archey.

That was until the DOJ stepped in on July 9th and requested to have the June 7th, ruling modified/changed.

        I agree with you but can’t ‘like’ the statement. Barr has to have his ducks marching in a perfect line, the ‘i’s’ all have to be dotted with precision and the ‘t’s’ crossed with exactitude to have even the slimmest chance of a conviction. One reason, I think, why he is proceeding slowly. And, since conviction is not likely, one reason why timing the release of information and indictments needs to be according to political needs rather than our desire for revenge.

          I am not optimistic and have been worried from the outset that Barr is just a higher life-form of swamp creature, committed to preserving ‘The Institutions’ in a ‘noble-looking’ way. However, in fairness, I would add to your list, Amy — and likely in the #1 slot: Made Mueller wrap up his investigation and issue his damn report.

          I think it’s reasonable to think that, left to his own devices, Mueller would have ‘made the flavor last’ on his ‘investigation’ right up to, if not through, the 2020 election. Things concluded rather quickly once Barr was confirmed. I may be wrong, but I don’t think it was a coincidence.

      “Verify the dossier” has never meant investigating the facts to determine if it is true. From the beginning the investigation was focused on media spin to justify itself. It’s why the texts from Page and Stzrok read more like employees at a PR firm than detectives on a case. They did not care if it was true. Any assumption of a good faith attempt to seek truth is a mistake. The investigation was created to accomplish goals not seek truth.

Even when Eisenhower “reformed” the SEC, he hired the same insiders. The Deep-State has always been with us and until all out war is waged against them, and some are executed for treason; and some are imprisoned; and all are fired, it’s just more of the same, as in rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic.

    https://foreignpolicy.com/2018/02/12/former-senior-fbi-official-is-leading-buzzfeeds-effort-to-verify-trump-dossier/

    Ferrante, a former top FBI official who previously served as director for cyber incident response at the U.S. National Security Council during the Barack Obama administration, is now at FTI Consulting, where he is leading the effort.

    Ferrante joined the FBI as a special agent in 2005, and he was assigned to the bureau’s New York field office, where he worked on cyber threats to national security. In 2006, he was selected as a member of the FBI’s Cyber Action Team, a group of experts who deploy globally to respond to critical cyber incidents.

    As a top FBI cybersecurity official tasked to the White House, Ferrante was in charge of coordinating the U.S. government response to Russian attempts to meddle in the 2016 presidential election, among other responsibilities. Prior to joining the NSC in 2015, Ferrante was chief of staff for the FBI’s cyber division at headquarters under then-Director James Comey. Ferrante, still working for the FBI but at the White House, stayed in his position as director for cyber incident response at the NSC through the Trump administration, until April 2017, when he left to join FTI.

    At FTI, Ferrante launched what’s now been a months-long stealth effort chasing down documents and conducting interviews on the ground in various countries around the world. His team directed BuzzFeed lawyers to subpoena specific data and testimony from dozens of agencies or companies across the country and assembled a cyber ops war room to analyze that data, according to sources familiar with the work.

    We are dealing with cold hard criminals here.
    Muller let 4 innocent men stay in prison so it wouldn’t stain the image of the FBI.
    2 DIED IN PRISON.

    What kind of monster does that?

    Folks, wake the hell up! These are not just political tricks. These criminals have been destroying real people’s lives for decades. Trump just happened to be the wrong guy to mess with.

    What about the Enron guys? Ask Sidney Powell…

    We invaded Iraq based on fake intel by these same criminals. It’s always the same bunch. How many innocent people died in the Iraq war? How many of our finest suffered serious injuries? How many committed suicide? All based on Clappers ( and the same cabal, Muller etc) fake intel.

    It’s now clear that fake intel and entrapment is their favorite method.

    It needs to end! They have zero credibility. Rest assured the world is watching this Russia Collusion hoax and are learning a lot.

    This has weakened our country. Thanks to these criminals. Iran is repeating their words. America is racist… America is racist. Geeeee, where does Iran get that from?

    Anyone thinks Putin is not watching all of this? Think of the golden information he is getting by taking a look inside our intel agencies and how they operate.

    Donald Trump is a Washington outsider. He’s used to working in the private sector realm, where it’s every man for himself and the toughest and smartest survive

    And that’s exactly what the President needs and has needed, to surround himself with Washington outsiders, tough, smart and savvy businessmen, lawyers and prosecutors who aren’t tied to the Washington scene and aren’t intimidated by the corrupt sewer that resides there

    There’s 350 million people in this country. Why does every single player have to be plucked from the tiny group of Washington insiders? They all know each other and they all seem to protect their little clique

    Screw all these people. Trump needs to bring in Americans who are just as sick of the crap as he is and start cleaning house

    If we ever have an honest president again after Trump, the lesson of this is he/she should fire every department head along with the first 3 management layers (at least) of the DOJ, CIA and FBI. Probably other agencies as well. This should happen 1 minute after swearing in.

    Whoever advised the President not to do this was stupid at best and a traitor at worst.

    From the Sperry article:

    https://www.realclearinvestigations.com/articles/2019/07/22/comey_under_scrutiny_for_own_inquiry_and_misleading_trump_119584.html

    “What remains unclear is why Comey would take such extraordinary steps against a sitting president. The Mueller report concluded there was no basis for the Trump-Russia collusion conspiracy theories. Comey himself was an early skeptic of the Steele dossier — the opposition research memos paid for by Hillary Clinton’s campaign that were the road map of collusion theories – which he dismissed as “salacious and unverified.””

    Comedy’s own words show his sensitivity to such actions, if only regarding one candidate:

    https://www.realclearinvestigations.com/articles/2018/08/22/despite_comey_assurance_vast_bulk_of_weiner_laptop_emails_never_examined.html

    Comey: “Assuming, as nearly everyone did, that Hillary Clinton would be elected president of the United States in less than two weeks, what would happen to the FBI, the Justice Department or her own presidency if it later was revealed, after the fact, that she still was the subject of an FBI investigation?”

    Uh, where was this concern of having the current president under investigation? Oh yeah, you’re the one who said you leaked in order to prompt a special counsel investigation! Can you even fathom not only the hypocrisy but the complete pass the media and law enforcement have given this guy as the constitution appears to be thrown to the dogs on his watch?

    There is no justifiable predicate for Comey’s actions nor for anyone involved in the coup attempt. Even they know it. Their actions were outrageous and the justifications they will put forward are laughable. Smug Comey thinks his justifications will save him. The risk of this post is not the “outrage trap” but rather getting “caught in the weeds”. The focus has to stay on the overarching story of what the intelligence community setup, under the aegis of the previous administration, and continued to carry-out against an elected President, simply because they feared him. It is this overall coordinated effort which is criminal and I think Barr will be able to show that and at least some of those responsible.

    SD:
    “Again, if transparency in conduct of the DOJ and FBI during 2016 is the expressed goal of Attorney General Bill Barr, then his current department fighting to keep descriptions of FBI memorandum hidden from public review runs exactly counter to that intent.

    This DOJ activity does not bode well for a narrative of Bill Barr is an honest broker. This is an example of how to cover-up material that is damaging to the institution.”

    SD is getting demonstrably more critical of Barr. In his 1/15/19 commentary, SD labeled him as “Bondo Barr.” the fixer.

    IMO, it’s becoming very clear that SD had strong suspicions about Barr from the start, when he was picked by McConnell as the only AG nominee who could be confirmed by the Senate. SD has been very deliberative, analytical, and fair in his critique of Barr’s actions as AG, and I believe he has been clearly signaling us as he has reviewed the facts and revealed simple, logical observations based upon same.

    Now, I wonder if Judge Boasberg can be sufficiently intimidated by the resistance and Barr’s DOJ lawyers to reverse his ruling that the Archie declarations be released, or will he do the right thing and allow Comey’s rationale and activities to be exposed.

    Regarding the classified “Comey memos,” Barr has them tightly buttoned-up because the President gave him complete declassification authority. However, if the Archie declarations are released, they could blow-up the cover-up of both Comey’s activities and the associated criminality of both the FBI and DOJ.

    It appears the greatest improvement in the transparency of the conduct of the FBI and DOJ is related to the motives of the AG.

    I thought I read here that Bill Barr was a top notch stand up guy? Like horowitz and huber. sundance posted story after story. Sessions was a good guy…Q…well we know that one. It is all repeating itself over and over and our side is not ONE inch closer to anyone other than republicans going to jail. ask yourself, how many more articles? how many more “reports” how many more “bombshells”? BTW, spare me the “it takes time” meme. Mueller certainly seemed to cover alot of ground in the last two years that we have waited. Trust me, Pres Trump will NOT win unless he gets the info out there. The only thing I am left to assume is either we have all been played by OUR side or the corruption is so deep and embedded that it will NEVER be broken. Tell me how a simple man like me is going to draw any other collusions. 90% of the people who will go the polls in 2020 BELIEVE the democrats stories. I have seen it over and over. I have talked to MANY people who believe the left. We are a pitiful handful. I have lost faith so many times, only to have some slick article full of research convince me Trump will prevail. It starts to feel like I am the gullible dunce who believes there are “white hats”. Be careful who you put your faith in folks…seems everyone has an agenda

    Besides, it would seem to me they are all on recall notice at any time anyway. Oh, and we can move you around all over in the gubt too. Bruce & Nellie Ohr.

    And, if he was a “cybersecurity expert”, what did he leave behind to spy on the TRUMP team, and what did he steal from the get-go?

    It’s amazing how a season of forgetting makes things go away. A little water under the bridge and people are off doing what they do in their lives and can’t remember all the details that had them so excited and upset. The old government remedy; stall, obfuscate, and wait; always seems to take the urgency out of the matter and reduce the news down to; “what was all the panic about?”; or, “aren’t there more important things to worry about now?”; and “At THIs POINt, WHAt? Difference Does IT MAKE??”

    It’s amazing how we used to hold the media to the standard of truth. Now it doesn’t matter what they say, as long as their ratings are high enough from their supporters, who like what they have to say and want more, compared to those who are outraged and want proof of what they are saying.

    Truth isn’t important any more; just how you feel.

    Take the LBGTQ community; in the beginning scientists promised us there was a genetic cause; and they were going produce the DNA and medical evidence that homosexuals were “born that way”, very soon. Now, after almost a generation of promising this “breakthrough”, we’ve become so conditioned to “normalcy” of the behavior; that if you ask for the proof, people look at you like you’re from outer space and ask you, “what difference does it make if they’re ‘born that way’ or not, are you some sort of bigot? As long as they love each other, that’s all that matters. It’s how you feel about what you do that matters. Right and wrong is what YOU decide it is.” I’m into stealing cars and jewelry, that’s my reality. What’s yours. (sarc /off)

    Well nothing like a federally appointed defense atty writing a 39 pg “plea for leniency of 121 MONTHS” to the Judge, encapsulating Sayoc was essentially driven mad by his infatuation with Trump, Hannity, and Fox & Friends!

    Oh, and on pg 38, the atty gets around to concluding the devices were harmless.
