WARNING – Troubling Statement by President Trump: “We’re dealing with Senator Burr. We’re dealing with the committee”…

During a press conference with the media yesterday, President Trump was asked about the vetting and selection process for the next Director of National Intelligence to replace outgoing DNI Dan Coats.

President Trump said the White House was working with the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (SSCI).

THE PRESIDENT: Well, Admiral — as you know, Maguire — Admiral Maguire is a very talented man. He’s a great leader. As an Admiral, was always a great leader. He is a man who is respected by everybody, and he’s going to be there for a period of time. Who knows? Maybe he gets the job. But he’ll be there for a period of time — maybe a longer period of time than we think. We’ll see.

We’re dealing with Senator Burr. We’re dealing with the committee. We’re dealing with probably 9 or 10 people that want the job very much. You know the name of almost every one of them. They’re truly outstanding. Everybody wants DNI. Everybody wants it.

And I will say that the Admiral is such a great choice from the standpoint of now. And maybe he goes further. We’ll see what happens. But we’re dealing with the committee and Senator Burr. We have people, all of whom you know — highly respected people. We’ll be making a decision in the not-too-distant future. (link)

One of the troubling aspects to President Trump’s answer is the implication of the White House relying on the SSCI to approve the next Director of National Intelligence.

That process is troubling because the SSCI, specifically Chairman Richard Burr and Vice-Chair Mark Warner, have a vested interest in steering the selection. The SSCI was at the epicenter of the Legislative Branch coup effort to impeach the head of the Executive Branch, President Trump.

During the 2016 effort to weaponize the institutions of government against the outside candidacy of Donald Trump, the SSCI was headed by Richard Burr and Dianne Feinstein; after the election Senator Feinstein abdicated her vice-chair position to Senator Mark Warner in January 2017.

While the SSCI was engaged in their part of the 2016 effort Vice-Chair Feinstein’s lead staffer was a man named Daniel Jones.  Dan Jones was the contact point between the SSCI and Fusion-GPS.

After the election, and after Feinstein abdicated, Dan Jones left the committee to continue paying Fusion-GPS (Glenn Simpson) for ongoing efforts toward the impeachment insurance policy angle.

Feinstein left because she didn’t want to deal with the consequences of a President Trump, IF he discovered the SSCI involvement.  Dan Jones left because with a Trump presidency the SSCI, now co-chaired by Senator Mark Warner, needed arms-length plausible deniability amid their 2017 operations to continue the removal effort (soft coup).

The blueprint for this plausible deniability process surfaces with Dan Jones appearing in the 2017 text messages between Senator Warner and the liaison for Christopher Steele, lawyer and lobbyist Adam Waldman:

In those March 2017 text message you can see Senator Warner attempting to set up covert “no paper trail” communication with dossier author Christopher Steele.  Adam Waldman represented Chris Steele and Steele’s employer, Oleg Deripaska.

Less than a month later you can see within the text messages that Christopher Steele is in direct contact with Dan Jones.  “[Chris] said Dan Jones is coming to see you” etc.

(Text Messages Between Feinstein’s replacement, Mark Warner, and Chris Steele’s lawyer/lobbyist, Adam Waldman, noting the importance of Dan Jones)

Dan Jones talking to Christopher Steele in 2017 is critical to understanding what was going on after Trump won the election.

Jones raised $50 million from those who were behind the 2016 stop Trump effort, and the purpose was now the 2017 impeachment effort [SEE LINK].  Jones having left the SSCI (now outside govt.) then paid Christopher Steele and Fusion GPS to keep up their efforts.   As you can see from the texts, Jones was now talking in person (“coming to see you”) to SSCI Vice-Chair Mark Warner in April 2017.

[Side-Bar:  The role of Fusion-GPS in 2017 shifted, and was now weighted toward feeding a specific media narrative that would aid impeachment (through the FBI, Weissmann and Mueller obstruction angle).  Fusion-GPS was now the conduit for arms-length media leaks from the usurping small group still inside the DOJ and FBI.  Dan Jones was paying Fusion on behalf of those with larger interests. Fusion was feeding the media.]

So you can clearly see the SSCI was heavily involved in the impeachment effort after the election.  Secondary documentation of the connection between the DOJ, FBI, Fusion, and Dan Jones shows up in the FBI investigative 302 notes of Bruce Ohr, just released by Judicial Watch.  [Pay attention to the May 8th, 2017, interview – pg 18, 19 of pdf]

The highlighted bottom portion of page 18 (May 8, 2017, interview) shows a heavily redacted text, but holds enough material to overlay with other research.

This is where Bruce Ohr is talking about Dan Jones efforts as they were currently aligned with Fusion GPS: “and had been on the staff of the [Senate Intelligence Committee]”…. “At the time of the interview [Jones] was working with the [Vice Chairman of the Committee Mark Warner]”… etc.

This part is heavily redacted because the corrupt agents within the current DOJ and FBI once again don’t want people to piece together what was happening.

This is not sources and methods being redacted. This is not national security being redacted.  This is the trail of the connective tissue in/around the small group plotting that is being hidden.

At the top of page 19, the investigative notes of Ohr’s discussion continues.

Bruce Ohr is telling the FBI investigator, likely Agent Joe Pientka, about Glenn Simpson and Dan Jones visiting Christopher Steele sometime after May 8, 2017, and they were in the process of “lawyering up”.

Now before I go even deeper in the SSCI weeds, let me just pause for a moment and explain a more specific part of why the FBI is interviewing Bruce Ohr about Chris Steele and what was going on in/around early 2017.

Chris Steele wasn’t alone in the dossier; heck, much of the purpose for the FBI engaging with Steele was the laundry value of having an intelligence officer validate political opposition research which the FBI could use against Trump.   Most of the raw material and research inside the dossier was from Glenn Simpson and Nellie Ohr at Fusion GPS.

Everyone carrying out this operation, all of the corrupt entities within it, knew material from Chris Steele was essentially political opposition research.  Many of those same people weaponized the research into the FISA application to give it higher import and value.

That set’s up early 2017 – where the FBI was evaluating the extent to which Chris Steele was willing to remain on public record to support a false framework about the dossier itself.   This was a key issue because the corrupt DOJ and FBI officials were about to hand-off the dossier to Special Counsel Robert Mueller (figurehead only) as the basis for the ‘small group’ and him to launch the special counsel aspect of an ongoing operation.

If Chris Steele suddenly walked away from the dossier, and/or admitted publicly the dossier was political opposition research primarily from Glenn Simpson and Nellie Ohr, the FBI would have a shit-storm on it’s hands…. and they needed to evaluate the position of Steele.  That’s the driving purpose behind all of this “re-engagement” with Steele through Bruce Ohr.

The small group in the DOJ and FBI planned to continue, pass-off and modify the Trump investigation by shifting it to a special counsel.  The centerpiece of that investigation would be using the dossier as justification for a need to investigate Trump as a Russian risk.  The DOJ/FBI small group needed Glenn Simpson and Chris Steele to stand by the false narrative all of the players had assembled over the prior year.

The wildcard to retain the false story was Chris Steele… Steele was an outside participant, albeit aligned with the ideology and the purpose.  Evaluating Steele’s willful participation in keeping the narrative as assembled was the reason for their urgent talks; however, the “small group” couldn’t run the risk of direct talks in the same way that Mark Warner couldn’t risk of a paper trail.

Adam Waldman and Dan Jones were facilitating a plausibly deniable information pipeline from Chris Steele to Senator Mark Warner.  Bruce Ohr was facilitating a plausibly deniable information pipeline from Chris Steele to the FBI/DOJ small group. The purposes were the same, everyone needed assurances Steele wasn’t going to back-out.

That’s what the current DOJ officials are hiding behind the Bruce Ohr 302 redactions.

Someone warn President Trump not to rely on the advice and counsel from the SSCI.  Those Senators are at the heart of the impeachment effort against him.

    And President Trump doesn’t know this? .. doesn’t know all about SSCI and Burr / Warner?
    His comment at the presser was ‘table talk’, something he does a lot.

      Well I found it disturbing also, he almost kept hammering it as he repeated it over and over. Personally I have had concerns about several of his appointments because I expected him to be more of an expert when picking people to work with him. After all the hiring he would have done while running a business.

        He is NOT going to get Senate approval, for ANY appointment to replace coates, than doesn’t get ‘sign off’from the corrupt SSCI.

        SO, I view this as being like negotiating with China. He negotiates with SSCI, “maybe he gets a deal acceptable to him, MAYBE he doesn’t.”

        Meanwhile, like with China, he can’t be criticised, cause he’s negotiating, right?

        Maybe this guy will JUST be an interim, maybe more. Maybe he’ll be there for now, maybe for a long time.

        And yes, either one if two possibilities;
        PDJT is a very unstable idiot, and doesn’t KNOW the SSCI and McConnell are his mortal enemies, and is blithely going to nominate who they reccomend.
        Or, he is a VSG, knows EXACTLY what they are. Recognises they are fighting so hard BECAUSE, this is an important position, and, since he has been working to get Coates out for awhile, has figured out a,way to finesse this.

        Perhaps he keeps the Admiral as interim. Perhaps he has a ‘sleeper’, or does the old “float a name that has them spitting blood,….THEN float who you really want, and they are so relieved that they agree.

        Let the man work,…I say.

        Now they’ve been forewarned by the president himself. They better perform as PDJT expects before he takes the lid off the pressure cooker. I suspect these two swamp creatures don’t taste two well, anyway. Let them burn.

    • best hope, you are spot on which is why PDJT is doing what he is doing.
      First he nominates Ratcliffe who is hated and feared by the deep state. This exposes the deep state GOPers when Burr and Mitch snub Ratcliffe. I believe PDJT expected the snub and prefers Ratcliffe remain in Congress, possibly run for Cornyn seat in the Senate.
      Next PDJT places highly qualified Adm Maguire as acting DNI. Adm Maguire will not be challenged. Maguire can remain in position for 210 days and if no nominee is confirmed he can continue acting DNI for another 210 days. So PDJT keeps nominating who he really wants until one gets approved or keeps who he wants, Maguire.

      Win win for PDJT.

      As for Burr, it is great PDJT calls him out. Maybe McConnell takes the hint and replaces Burr.

        They’re an insufferable bunch. Especially the ones that claim Jeff Sessions “get it all set up” and that Comey is not completely implicated in the coup, but rather a honest man who wanted to “protect” his country.

        The problem with Barr is, his pro-bono work for the FBI shooters of Ruby Ridge. And, Barr’s dad hired the completely unqualified Epstein, and also wrote a book called “Space Relations”, not just a clever name. Notice Barr assigned the “Inspector General” to look into the Epstein suicide. Just like Rosenstein would have. Also, Durham (who Barr put on the case) covered up the CIA destruction of the torture interrogation tapes, nobody charged in that case.

    I disagree. Admiral McGuire is Acting DNI, not Gordon. The malefactors established a deep bench in each of the agencies. Barr/Trump needed to not only move Coates out but Gordon as well.

    Radcliffe was named to offer Burr/Warner a choice, either agree to McGuire or have a very public fight on your hands. Or did you believe the POTUS when he said in so many words that Radcliffe wasn’t up to the nasty confirmation process? Uh huh.

    There is nothing that can be done about Burr, Warner — the entire corrupt Senate Intelligence Committee except keep them close and neutralize them for what is to come.

    Unless I miss my mark, this is just a successful predicate for the coming similar showdown over Wray/Bowditch at FBI, which must play out similarly.

    That, as I’ve mentioned previously, will signal the next chapter of the reckoning has begun (including indictments).

    I sent the following e-mail to PDJT. I did not include the signature line in the message, since it has my real name.

    “Dear President Trump –
    I urge you or your trusted advisors to read the following article written by the news blogger “Sundance” on a website called the Conservative Tree House:


    Sundance has pieced together information from a large number of sources, most recently the redacted 302 interviews of Bruce Ohr and has concluded that members of the Senate SSCI were active participants in an unlawful scheme to impeach you.

    The storyline described by Sundance is quite compelling and in my opinion, likely correct. Please take a look.

    Thanks for all the wonderful things that you have done since becoming president. You have my enthusiastic support and also have my vote in 2020 for sure!”

    Is it possible that when saying “We’re DEALING with Sen. Burr. We’re DEALING with the committee”, Trump wasn’t saying that he was making a deal with them? Instead, he was signaling that he knows about the alignment of Burr, et al, and is having to deal with them – as in when someone has to “deal with a tumor”…. Could Trump be saying, “Hey, look with whom I’m having to deal with here?” – in getting a non-Deep State person in as DNI?

    Trump is a cagey guy; what if he has something on Burr or Warner and the tweet is a heads-up to the SSCI to not block Maguire? DNI? Perhaps SSCI has signaled they’ll drag the nomination out by investigating all of Trump’s choices for Director? Since none of the choices will be in the boat with Burr or Warner.

    Trump knows all of this now, and has likely known the general outlines of this conspiracy since the moment Admiral Mullin notified him of the FISA warrant corruption and the anomalies in the contractor access to NSA data, which in combination would indicate a Deep State plot. This was mere days after the election. This guy is a genius, remember, and as wily as they come. He knew instantly. Heck, we all knew, the moment Obama’s drones suddenly demanded Mullin be fired. Something stunk bad.

    Since then, for years now, it’s been a process of him playing rope a dope, fending off the conspirators and their chief enablers McConnell, Ryan et al, who have the entire Beltway Swamp and media supporting them. After all that carefully thought out response, I doubt he’s fixin’ to clumsily stumble into a trap set by the limp-brained Burr. He’s just fingering his first target, somebody below McConnell, somebody he may or may not directly confront soon. Coats’ firing was very carefully chosen as Trump’s line of attack, clearly. He opened fire with a fearsome artillery barrage, and followed through with an aggressive assault on the Deep State, which was the pitbull Ratcliff’s nomination. I’m guessing Trump and Ratcliff gamed out the inevitable outcome, and that his rejection would come swiftly, but Ratcliff did his duty and agreed to be the point man in this assault. Good for this patriot. If Burr stumbles and goes down, and the Big Ugly truly does come about suddenly, he’ll be in line for something big.

    It’s like Rules for Radicals, Alinsky’s book, you shine a spotlight on your target, freeze it, then let the great forces take their toll. Burr won’t stand up to the spotlight. It will be exceedingly difficult to attack McConnell directly, but his minions can be brought down, and that will reflect on McConnell in an election year, when he’ll be facing a tough D opponent. Trump’s going after McConnell, Burr is just a waypoint along the way.

    It seems Sen Burr also does not want Sen Graham to hold Spygate hearings in the Judiciary Committee.
