President Trump Announces Departure of Deputy DNI Sue Gordon – Former Admiral Joseph Maguire Will Serve as Acting DNI…

Good news for those who want accountability.  Bad news for those who were counting on deep state Sue Gordon to hide the corrupt intelligence behavior. As a result we can expect the usurping group and their media allies to go bananas.

No love… Move along… Out. Get Out!

The departure of Sue Gordon (above left) along with Dan Coats (above right) means President Trump will have the opportunity to place a new acting DNI, Joseph Maguire by the end of next week.   Hopefully this will speed up the process toward sunlight.

It’s interesting that Joseph Maguire (pictured above), comes from his current position as Director of the National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC). The NCTC was first organized by John Brennan, and we have suspected this part of the intelligence apparatus ties directly into the 2015/2016 use of the FBI and NSA database search issue.

All of that is laid out inside a 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.

Here’s the list of material possible for declassification, and the intelligence offices who hold custodial authority over the compartmented documents. This was the original list as outlined in 2018:

  • All versions of the Carter Page FISA applications (DOJ) (FBI) (ODNI).
  • All of the Bruce Ohr 302’s filled out by the FBI. (FBI) (ODNI)
  • All of Bruce Ohr’s emails (FBI) (DOJ) (CIA) (ODNI). All supportive documents and material provided by Bruce Ohr to the FBI. (FBI)
  • All relevant documents pertaining to the supportive material within the FISA application. (FBI) (DOJ-NSD ) (DoS) (CIA) (DNI) (NSA) (ODNI);
  • 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 intelligence documents that may not have been presented to the FISA Court. (CIA) (FBI) (DOJ) (ODNI) (DoS) (NSA)  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). [AKA ‘Bucket Five’]
  • All unredacted text messages and email content between Lisa Page and Peter Strzok on all devices. (FBI) (DOJ) (DOJ-NSD) (ODNI)
  • 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)

Additionally, since the 2018 list was developed, more information has surfaced about underlying material.  This added to the possibility of documents for declassification:

♦ 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]

    GOP needs to get a really articulate team together to appear on all show, to explain this story and the players. it takes a really good teacher to do this to people who are in the dark about all the things you and I have been reading here over the last two plus years.

    They need to understand they can’t tell it all at once which is what Sean Hannity, with his obsessive compulsive disorder, tries to do every time he touches the corruption story.

      Sebastian Gorka just addressed this, on Hannity actually.

      He basically said the average viewer cant wrap their brains around all that happened and we need to be able to put it succinctly.

      Gorka put it this way, (not verbatim, but close)…..

      “Hillary Clinton, the DNC and the Obama administration worked with the Intel Community and foreign governments in the UK and Italy to derail a presidential campaign and illegal surveil and spy on the Republican presidential candidate and then Presidents administration. Its the biggest scandal in American history.” Gorka ended by emphasizing this: “…….AND PEOPLE NEED TO GO TO JAIL, SEAN.”

      It was a segment with Bongino, Geraldo and Gorka. Geraldo only spoke for a minute but he was surprisingly on board with this sentiment.

              If and when they’re found guilty by a jury of their peers…there cannot be absolution. They must pay the full price of their crimes. Punishment for the perpetrators and a dire and enduring warning to the rest of us and our posterity…

              The very future of the United States as a nation of the people, by the people and for the People is at stake.

    • This news gives cautious optimism. Retaining Gordon would have closed in on my Occam moment. We’ve been fed on this notion of a Great Encompassing Noose That Must Capture All Miscreants Simultaneously at the Same Exact Moment.

      Occasionally someone will pipe up like the kid who sees the Naked Emperor and say, ‘why can’t we just arrest McCabe’. Immediately the crowd shouts, ‘silly boy, you don’t know how 8D chess is played. Watch and learn.” Ah ok.

      Forget lawyerly anal retention for a minute (or if you’re more cynical, the other team running down the clock). There is a social-political imperative for the folks in the middle of the spectrum (not the derangists, the rational swing-voters) to see validation of what we up here have been squawking about for three years. We need one person in stripes, in jail and on the way to trial. I don’t care if it taints the Huge Sting or if it compromises a corner of the Grand Investigation. One guy in stocks might go a long way towards breaking this nation’s raging fever. The derangists are lost forever. The rational middle (and I pray it still exists) is going to save this nation if anyone is. So AG Barr, sir, get the ______ moving, sir.

      Don’t tell me about the chess game. Comey broke the law and should have been charged last week. Period. End of Story.

        Agree 100%. I pegged Comey a while back as the one person who could go down and it would go a long way towards a national awakening.

        The sight of James Comey, former director of the FBI, in cuffs, going to jail for his involvement in an attempted coup of the POTUS would be like forcing a red pill down the throat of anyone who doesnt already have their head up their A$$.

        Comey is linked to every one in the Obama admin, in some way or another, so if he went down, it would implicate all of them. Obama, Brennan, Lynch, McCabe, etc……

        Obama’s presidency is immediately stamped as the most corrupt. Legacy set in stone.

        I really hate to even say it considering the number of people who were involved in the biggest scandal in our history and all those who committed crimes, but if we got Comey, and I mean really got him, as in, PRISON, for, I dont know, 35 years, (hes 58) that might be enough to satisfy my thirst for real justice.

      The explanations are out there, and from 40,000 ft it’s not hopelessly complicated; it’s just hard to believe. If clearly stated incontrovertible facts alone could enlighten people we’d be in a much different place.

      It takes something shocking to break through the surface — likely with visual/audio — and sadly it will take someone trusted on the liberal side finally to acknowledge it (because we live in times where people don’t trust what can be verified but what selected authority figures tell them). It will take a frame-shifting event, to change perception/perspective, but then the gaps fill in as quickly and with as much detail as one cares to find.

      As for facebook, my experience is that before posting, once you’ve pasted in a link, it’ll give you the option of discarding the stock image that it previews. Then, you can click on the little camera icon and add a different image of your choosing that you have on your computer.

      So if it’s a photo from among several in a Treehouse article, right-click and save it to disk ahead of time. Then when you’re trying to make your post, click the camera and browse to it and select it and you’ll be posting that photo with whatever text excerpt and web link you included that caused the preview image you don’t want.

        She was hired in 1980 under the Carter/Stansfield Turner remake of the Company into a scientific/technical intel as opposed to its old human intel model. She was fresh out of Duke University with a BS in zoology. Carter gutted the Agency, over 800 people in operations, the main group at that time, were sacked and replaced by more…scientific…times.

        I can’t see any outside education on the thin CV she has available, but under Clinton and Obama administrations she moved up in technical, especially IT, departments. From my own experience with bureaucrats who’ve been touched by the Powers and marked for advancement, technical skills aren’t as important as perceived loyalty. I wonder…

        In 2001 I was in the Beltway and in the course of a brunch an employee told me that the Company was still recruiting people heavily at universities at under and grad levels while they were still in school, paying for tuition for a set minimum period of employment. Recruiting was especially focused on Ivy League schools and others with a liberal background. If you look at the CVs of former DCIs back to Donovan you’ll see the Ivy League’s well represented. Once inside the Company has its own schools that educate the various employees in their areas to limit problems caused by outside schools. I ain’;t saying they’re bad, I have a rare 30ish year old set of books the Company contracted for to train analysts on mathematical analytical skills, they still make math profs nervous, it’s just that when you keep everything in-house…things can go awry.

      I try very hard not to resort to that, with two exceptions. I became so disgusted with the MSM’s non-stop “Michelle is beautiful!” and “Hillary is beautiful” campaigns during the Clinton and Obama years that I took numerous opportunities to insult their physical appearance. If the ‘Rats and their enablers/useful idiots were willing to insult my intelligence enough to claim those two were not only as ugly as homemade sin but were actually attractive, I was willing to bluntly call their bluff and describe them just as I saw them. Moreover, as repulsive as they both were physically, their exteriors appear considerably better than the spirits they contain. Those are two extraordinarily vile and evil women.

      However, I take issue with one thing in your comment. I would happily tell both of those two, directly to their faces, that the best day either of them ever saw in their entire lives was orders of magnitude less attractive than the worst day Melania Trump has ever seen.

      BTW, on the radio yesterday I happened to catch a fragment of an interview on the Ben Shapiro show with Matthew Whitaker. As usual, he chose his words carefully, but it’s interesting that he’s popping up here and there now. He has taken a job somewhere, but hasn’t started it yet and no, I don’t think it was media related. (Sorry, just can’t remember).

      Authority and power is being returned to its rightful owner, and Deep State hates it.

    Admiral Joseph McGuire wiki entry……

    “Joseph Maguire (born 1952) is the current Director of the National Counterterrorism Center. He retired from the United States Navy as a Vice Admiral in 2010 after 36 years of military service.[1] Prior to retiring from active duty, he was the Deputy Director for Strategic Operational Planning at National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC).[2] NCTC’s mission is to lead the U.S. Government in strategic operational planning and counter-terrorism intelligence in order to combat terrorist threats to the U.S. and its interests. Previously, Vice Admiral Maguire was Commander, Naval Special Warfare Command, Navy’s component of the U.S. Special Operations Command and the Special Operations Component of the U.S. Navy. His first flag assignment was in United States Special Operations Command as the Director of Strategic Assessments and Resources.
    Maguire is currently the President and Chief Executive Officer of the Special Operations Warrior Foundation, a foundation which provides scholarship grants as well as educational counseling to the children of fallen Special Operations troops. The foundation also provides immediate financial assistance to severely wounded warriors and their families. In June 2018, he was nominated to be the Director of the National Counterterrorism Center by President Donald Trump.[1] This nomination was confirmed by the U.S. Senate in December 2018.[3] He was sworn in on December 27, 2018.[4]
    Maguire is highly revered as a leader in the U.S. Navy SEAL community.
    On August 8, 2019, President Donald Trump announced that Maguire would become Acting Director of National Intelligence on August 15, 2019.[5] ”

    After reading about the chain of command previously, I was heartened to see Sue Gordon sidelined and was wondering if Trump would be shuffling people to name a patriot to fill her place. Not sure how to interpret that “Joseph Maguire (pictured above), comes from his current position as Director of the National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC). The NCTC was first organized by John Brennan, and we have suspected this part of the intelligence apparatus ties directly into the 2015/2016 use of the FBI and NSA database search issue.”

    Organized by John Brennan? Wtf. Clarification please???

    We need to reduce the power and size of the FBI today! They are now soooo big outside governments are effecting our elections through them.
    You have to understand many do not wish the US to develop strong nationalistic policies under Trump. And these interests can work their way thru our FBI and DOJ.

He was pro-active in discovering the abuse, in taking technical action to close it, and in timely notifying all interested parties including Candidate Trump. I hope that the Navy will one day award him a medal of commendation for exercising his duties bravely and correctly when so many others did not.

      I also hope that Judge Collyer will be recognized for her duty to the Court.

    OUTSTANDING.

    I know this doesn’t seem like much with everything we have on our plate right now, but to me this is a very big deal. We intentionally elected a man who had no political experience. Of course it was going to take a little while to get things ironed out, and to figure out who the swamp “advisors” were.

    I for one cannot wait for President Trumps second term. Even the Republicans will not know what hit them. Our President is a quick study.

    The CIA, FBI, DOJ and likely the National Security Council conspired to violate the civil rights of George Papadopoulos, Mike Flynn, Carter Page, and Donald Trump by using the Intelligence Community and Allied Intelligence Services to illegally surveil the Trump Campaign, Transition Team and Administration to provide political advantage to the Hillary Campaign and the DNC.

    Every official that knew George P refused offers of Russian derived Hillary emails, who gave him thousands of dollars in marked bills to entrap him into a FARA violation and currency transport violation, or signed off on FISA applications based on a fictional Steele dossier should be arrested, perp walked and prosecuted for their illegal acts.

    • OldParatrooper, I’m pretty certain that this is exactly what we will very soon see beginning to take place: people being arrested and charged with Federal crimes in indictments that will survive assaults by the most-expensive defense lawyers in the land. Indictments that will eventually be sustained by the US Supreme Court (because we know in advance that every one of them will be fought “all the way up”).

      But I’m also certain that “We, the People won’t see it coming.” These legal proceedings, which take place against “presumed innocent” people, are conducted in secret. (Grand Juries meet in secret even in your home town.) An impenetrable cloak of secrecy has been cast down over the whole thing, as it should be.

      Furthermore, the documents that may have been declassified are being used as criminal evidence, which once again is subject to procedures of secrecy and non-disclosure. Don’t look for these documents to appear on the Internet until trials are underway or finished, and, even then, expect them to be redacted.

      We’re going to know that the traps have been sprung when the morning headlines describe a series of pre-dawn raids and arrests. The indictments will be unsealed and no doubt they will then be published. No one will know if more indictments are forthcoming and the prosecutors will not say. The night before, we won’t have had “a cucking flue” of what the morrow would finally bring.
