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.

        How does executive privilege of information stay privileged with a spy listening in?
        Comey is a known leaker. What classified info that the spy heard was lleaked?Who else knows that is outside of the spying by FBI/DOJ?
        There has to be others that know outside of the small group.

          A spy, or any third party whose presence is not known to one or more of those in the conversation, listening covertly to a privileged conversation, does not waive the privilege.
          Waiver requires one of the participants to have the conversation knowing it is being listened to by a person outside the scope of the privilege. A participant who is not aware of the unauthorized, by him or her, listening retains, and can invoke, the privilege. Really just common sense, though a retained lawyer, unlike moi, would send you a five page letter saying the sane thing and charge you $5,000 for the privilege of explaining privilege.

      MaineCoon – I feel this way too.

      Although, at the moment, in our house there is a constant discussion about how Comey was perhaps a ‘useful idiot,’ in the diabolical scheme, inasmuch as he could have sincerely believed all the Russian collusion nonsense about candidate PT and set out to ‘rescue’ the republic!!

      He does come across as a seriously pompous man with a high estimation of his own capabilities. My hubby does not think Comey is smart enough to have done this purely for political purposes from the get go. Comey sees himself as a superhero of some type who slotted right in with being manipulated by the Obama swamp gang in denying PT the presidency.

      None of this is to mitigate what Comey has done – it is more of an academic discussion
      on how devious, arrogant and evil the gang was and is still.

      The other thing is how far these two VERY tall men, (Mueller and Comey – let’s face it, they look like they came from central casting) went in their careers when they both seem to be not too bright? Shallow, I know, but interesting??

        Samantha Powers should be high on everyone’s list, right below Valerie Jarrett and bozo himself. These are wishes, after all. Samantha is married to Cass Sunsteen, both of whom have always advocated for the Vientiane overthrow of the United States. Early in Bozos presidency, Cass shared an office and phone number with ACORN. Basically two halves of a double wide trailer. Political pressure and Project Veritas destroyed ACORN and Samantha eventually became Ambassador to the UN. Everything goes back to the czars and bozos inner circle. One more thing that I think is relevant is the 1700 FBI files that Bill Clinton was caught with when he was president. Those files have never been identified to my knowledge and they could explain how these people managed to corrupt the FBI/DOJ. It also could explain the totally weird behavior of John Roberts among others.

  2. It seems several of us have been studying Rantingly most intently today.
    The most interesting article I saw pertained to the Army asking for funding to be reprogrammed to cover an ongoing “classified” mission around the greater DC area that involves the Helicopter Unit tasked with delivering special forces folks.

    Much information is coming to light in a short period here. Much about the how and why the “government” attempted to prevent the election of Mr. Trump; prevent President Elect Trump from forming a coherent cabinet; and preventing President Trump from implementing his policies and legislative goals.

    Some of us are reading the information for what it is… carefully hidden nuggets that are semi-obscured by “acceptable justification”. The folks trying to “justify” their actions are not what is “troubling” to me; it is that they acted in this manner in broad daylight while daring anyone to say “the emperor has no clothes”.

    So I don’t think the extra Army activities are occurring to provide additional security for the President; but rather to provide additional security for those who are the Principals in the Seditious Activities meant to “fundamentally transform the United States and its Constitutional Republic”.

    There are quite a few individuals who can “justify” the argument that certain “oaths” do not have an expiration date. Federalist #46 does lay a good bit of the groundwork in that regard. I can only hope that those folks the Army is carrying around in those helicopters are there not to cover for the Bolsheviks and Mensheviks, even though that may be their “official mission”; but rather to prepare the way for those who say “If You (DOJ) will not, then I (We The People) will.

    Who will Tweet first in vociferous denial of the claim: Comey? Brennan? Clapper? Or will the three of them join forces and publish a single, scathing MegaTweet to rebut the “spying” assertion?

    Will 7,452 “former Intelligence Community and Department Of Justice Officials” sign a Letter Of Condemnation against Horowitz and his most unfortunate and disagreeable assessment?

    Will a panel of 437 CNN Analysts and Contributors spend 63 contiguous Television Hours attempting to exactly define and contextualize the terms “spy”, “spied upon”, “spying”, and “to spy”?

    These are the things I want to know.

    The Boys (Band) are back together! My husband tells me give Barr a chance, I say I did! When he let Muller put out the report that went against all things DOJ stands for. He could not get it out fast enough, you don’t see him racing to get out the spying truth do you!! Barr is a Bush guy, so was Sessions, So was Comey, So was Muller, So was Rosenstien… the boys (band) are back, is all that needs to be said. All comes out and then we get Linsey, what a joke…..

    This point about Trump being led to believe the allegations were from US intelligence is something I have missed entirely. From RCP article.

    “Comey also withheld the facts that the dossier was financed by the Hillary Clinton campaign (Comey had known this since October 2016, if not earlier), that it was compiled by a private foreign contractor, and that it was not a product of the U.S. government. The omissions led Trump to believe the contents of the dossier came from U.S. intelligence and were taken seriously by serious people in the government. If he had known otherwise, he could have easily dismissed the information as biased and unreliable — and questioned why Comey was even bothering to conduct such a briefing.”

    So, every week we learn more and more about the corruption and lies. All I can think is that video of Trump during the election when he describes the vast Deep State. At the time, we kinda knew from Fast and Furious/ Benghazi /Lois Lerner and how everything just got shoved under the carpet. But folks, it’s STILL GETTING SHOVED under the carpet. And I have about had it. People need to be in jail for this. I mean—this is sedition and treason. It is serious.

    What Sundance is reminding us, “it doesn’t matter if the car came to a complete stop at the red light after running over the old lady.”

    The legal stop is irrelevant, the issue is killing the pedestrian.

    Likewise, it’s irrelevant that the FBI conducted a criminal investigation with undercover agents and electronic surveillance. The issue is the ENTIRE INVESTIGATION was illegal because it began under false pretenses by corrupt political operatives abusing the power of law enforcement and intelligence and willfully, with full knowledge and corrupt intent, perpetuating a fraud on the FISA court.

  27. Spoiler alert: I stopped reading when I came to this phrase…”we need to start by demanding the declassification of the Comey memos…”

    That bottom-line word, “declassification”, just shut down all those pesky details otherwise.

    “Shut them down — Declassify”, “Shut them down — Declassify” …etc.

    Anybody listening? Barr? Mr. President? Bueller?

    The Democrats are a criminal mob, and no one wants to see that come out. In league with the globalist NeverTrumpers and the Islamists. It’s avoidance behavior, all the way down.

    Sundance is correct, as corrupt as this is, the focus still needs to be on how this all started. Because that is the key to exposing the corruption. The rest of all this will follow.

    That said, this is excellent reporting by RCP investigations.

    Comey’s FBI didn’t spy on people, ask the filthy p.o.s., he said so. (sarcasm in my voice)
