House Intelligence Committee Was Contacted By CIA ‘Whistle-blower’ Prior to Complaint Construction…

More evidence is surfacing showing how the CIA ‘whistle-blower’ complaint was a purposefully constructed political hit-job. Yes, Muh-Ukraine is much like Muh-Russia.

The New York Times reports today the CIA operative approached the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI) prior to filling out a ‘whistle-blower’ complaint form.  The CIA gossiper contacted staff of HPSCI Chairman Adam Schiff.

According to the report (written to defend the interests of Schiff et al), the CIA gossiper contacted the HPSCI after the top lawyer for the CIA would not advance his cause. We still suspect the ‘whistle-blower” is Michael Barry. Obviously the Times puts the customary spin on the information:

WASHINGTON — The Democratic head of the House Intelligence Committee, Representative Adam B. Schiff of California, learned about the outlines of a C.I.A. officer’s concerns that President Trump had abused his power days before the officer filed a whistle-blower complaint, according to a spokesman and current and former American officials.

The early account by the future whistle-blower shows how determined he was to make known his allegations that Mr. Trump asked Ukraine’s government to interfere on his behalf in the 2020 election. It also explains how Mr. Schiff knew to press for the complaint when the Trump administration initially blocked lawmakers from seeing it.

The C.I.A. officer approached a House Intelligence Committee aide with his concerns about Mr. Trump only after he had had a colleague first convey them to the C.I.A.’s top lawyer. Concerned about how that initial avenue for airing his allegations through the C.I.A. was unfolding, the officer then approached the House aide. In both cases, the original accusation was vague.

The House staff member, following the committee’s procedures, suggested the officer find a lawyer to advise him and meet with an inspector general, with whom he could file a whistle-blower complaint. The aide shared some of what the officer conveyed to Mr. Schiff. The aide did not share the whistle-blower’s identity with Mr. Schiff, an official said. (read more)

What is occurring is becoming clear…

After the 2018 mid-terms, and in preparation for the House “impeachment” strategy, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff and House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler hired Lawfare Group members to become committee staff.

Chairman Schiff hired former SDNY U.S. Attorney Daniel Goldman (link), and Chairman Nadler hired Obama Administration lawyer Norm Eisen and criminal defense attorney Barry Berke (link), all are within the Lawfare network.  [You probably saw Berke questioning former Trump campaign chairman Corey Lewandowski.]

It now looks like the Lawfare network constructed the Schiff Dossier, and handed it to allied CIA operative Michael Barry to file as a formal IC complaint.  This process is almost identical to the Fusion-GPS/Lawfare network handing the Steele Dossier to the FBI to use as the evidence for the 2016/2017 Russia conspiracy.

This series of events is exactly what former CIA Analyst Fred Fleiz said last week. Fleitz has extensive knowledge of the whistleblower process. Fleitz said last week the Ukraine call whistleblower is likely driven by political motives, and his sources indicate he had help from Congress members while writing it.  WATCH:


Additionally, prior to the “whistleblower complaint” the Intelligence Community Inspector General did not accept whistle-blower claims without first hand knowledge. However, the ICIG revised the protocol to allow this specific complaint to be registered by the CIA whistle-blower.

Now it surfaces that the ICIG Michael Atkinson didn’t even review the Trump-Zelenskyy phone call transcript before forwarding the complaint to congress [SEE HERE]

The Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG) is Michael K Atkinson. ICIG Atkinson is the official who accepted the ridiculous premise of a hearsay ‘whistle-blower‘ complaint; an intelligence whistleblower who was “blowing-the-whistle” based on second hand information of a phone call without any direct personal knowledge, ie ‘hearsay‘.

The center of the Lawfare Alliance influence was/is the Department of Justice National Security Division, DOJ-NSD. It was the DOJ-NSD running the Main Justice side of the 2016 operations to support Operation Crossfire Hurricane and FBI agent Peter Strzok. It was also the DOJ-NSD where the sketchy legal theories around FARA violations (Sec. 901) originated.

Michael K Atkinson was previously the Senior Counsel to the Assistant Attorney General of the National Security Division of the Department of Justice (DOJ-NSD) in 2016. That makes Atkinson senior legal counsel to John Carlin and Mary McCord who were the former heads of the DOJ-NSD in 2016 when the stop Trump operation was underway.

Michael Atkinson was the lawyer for the same DOJ-NSD players who: (1) lied to the FISA court (Judge Rosemary Collyer) about the 80% non compliant NSA database abuse using FBI contractors; (2) filed the FISA application against Carter Page; and (3) used FARA violations as tools for political surveillance and political targeting.

Yes, that means Michael Atkinson was Senior Counsel for the DOJ-NSD, at the very epicenter of the political weaponization and FISA abuse.

If the DOJ-NSD exploitation of the NSA database, and/or DOJ-NSD FISA abuse, and/or DOJ-NSD FARA corruption were ever to reach sunlight, current ICIG Atkinson -as the lawyer for the process- would be under a lot of scrutiny for his involvement.

Yes, that gives current ICIG Michael Atkinson a strong and corrupt motive to participate with the Pelosi-Schiff/Lawfare impeachment objective.

      They’re amputating the leg before the disease spreads. There are several committees moving forward with impeachment efforts. With Trump releasing the phone transcript (which they didn’t expect) and undermining the Ukraine conspiracy Schiff looks foolish continuing to push a non-story that risks hurting the Democrats other efforts.

      Sting? NYT caught up in it and had to roll?

      Schiff & co go to Ukraine looking for a call transcript. Schiff strong arms the Ukies a la Browbeatin’ Joe and gets a transcript. Thinking that’s the real one he runs with it and sets up a whistle blower to present it. His ‘parody’ is actually what was on the ‘transcript’ he got and the plan was that the real transcript that was declassified was going to be outed as a fake after Schiff’s intro. The good guys clamped down on the NYT, who was going to break the faked declassified transcript story, at that point, leaving Schiff hanging in the wind.

      Think along the lines of there being a ‘server’ that holds all the ‘classified’ call records. That server is the honeypot to which leakers are ‘allowed’ access. That’s the reason why dems were screaming about the real secure servers after Schiff got stung. Schiff was given a few days to resign and roll, but didn’t. Bad move.

      This is going to be the RICO case from hell. The NYT had the choice of either going out of business or coming clean. Street level reporters probably don’t know the deal yet, because they’re going to be rolled up at editing time if they’re crooked. MH tweet: “OH on the Q train intercom: “Attention passengers. The intercom phone is for emergencies only, it is not for asking the conductor questions.”

      Trump at PC said he was ‘surprised’ NYT ran the Schiff story gives it away.

        No wonder he looked so shocked after he read his opening statement. Funny none of his staff told him that President Trump had released the transcript. That is unless Schitt wanted it to be a bombshell at the opening of the hearing. Bet he really was surprised when he detonated the bomb and it turned out to be a dud (of epic proportions)!

          • Schiff is an IDIOT.
            Schiff PUBLISHED the whistleblower LETTER notifying Schiff that the complaint had been filed with the ICIG, AND LEFT IN the TOP SECRET information which the whistleblower illegally leaked to Schiff.

            Schiff published the LETTER, claiming it was the COMPLAINT.

            Think about that for a second. Schiff just PUBLISHED his OWN illegal receipt of TOP SECRET information and put it up on the website, because SCHIFF can’t tell the difference between 1) A COMPLAINT TO THE ICIG and 2) A LETTER advising him that the COMPLAINT has been filed with the ICIG.

            At this point, the HPSCI literally HAS to cut Schiff loose or he will take them all down with him.

            I STRONGLY suspect that this is why there has been an UNPRECEDENTED flood of Pro-Schiff trolls in the comments sections of Breitbart, Federalist, Gateway Pundit and National Review, a coordinated effort that is DESPERATE to push the Pro-Schiff narrative.

It is worth checking out Laura’s program for this segment.

          Below is an excerpt from:

          “Then, on 22 July 2019, Ukrainian media reported that the procurator for military investigations in the Ukrainian prosecutor-general’s office was probing the purchase by Ukraine of the Aeros border surveillance system. Adam Schiff’s sometime fundraiser found one of his two big projects in Ukraine under investigation for corruption: specifically, it appears, for an allegation that the system itself was not necessary for the procurement purpose; for an allegation that it had functionality problems; and for an allegation that the transaction involved embezzlement (although the latter charge doesn’t seem to be directed at Aeros).

          It seems doubtful that President Trump knew about this relatively obscure development when he had his 25 July phone call with President Zelensky. But it’s a strong bet that a lot of Democrats in the U.S. knew (such as political activist Alexandra Chalupa and her Ukraine-embedded network, which was so active in seeking dirt on Trump during the 2016 campaign). As the link above indicates, Igor Pasternak had already posted a statement about the investigation at the Aeros company website (the date of the statement is 24 July).”

    I just can’t help myself from adding two and two here.

    The spy went to Schiff before filing the complaint. The spy claimed all his knowledge was overheard from other officials.

    References to the primary sources, from the letter from the spy to Schiff:

    1) “I have received information from multiple U.S. Government officials”
    2) “more than half a dozen U.S. officials have informed me”
    3) “my colleagues”
    4) “Multiple White House officials with direct knowledge of the call”
    5) “White House officials who told me this information”
    6) “I was told by White House officials”
    7) “The officials I spoke with told me”
    8) “I learned from multiple U.S. officials”
    9) “White House officials told me”
    10) “One White House official described”
    11) “I also learned from multiple U.S. officials”
    12) “multiple U.S. officials told me”
    13) “I was told separately by multiple U.S. officials”
    14) “I learned from U.S. officials”
    15) “I also learned from a U.S. official”
    16) “several U.S. officials told me”
    etc. rest all uses the same language, either “White House officials” or “U.S. officials”.

    Data point: All the information from “White House officials” was either false or a negatively-spun version of something completely legal and benign that was already on the public record.

    Data point: there are 13 Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee. Each subcomittee has 6 Democrats and Schiff is on none of them. 6 Democrats + Schiff = “more than a half dozen”.

    Data point: Not one single claim is sourced to any official in CIA, DNI, or State, or any other agency besides the WH itself.

    The simplest solution to the formula presented: “White House officials” were in on the counterespionage sting and offered this fake opportunity to a traitor they knew would bite. All other references to “US Officials” = Schiff and all six Democrats one of the four subcommittees.

    • I don’t know if this author was ever that sophisticated. (S)He’d just say “White House officials” for legitimacy (sic). As Sundance has probably correctly concluded, this is just another repetition of the Steele strategy: a document, written by Lawfare (once again, “very badly”), is put into some kind of “official channel.” The foolish lawyers once again assumed many things wrong: that the complaint would never be made public, that a transcript of the actual conversation would never be released, and that Donald Trump would be devastated by their legal brilliance. 🤣

        Perhaps but that raises a lot of questions like why say WH in some places and not others? Why make up only WH sources and no made-up sources from any other agency? Person was from the CIA, so it’s suspicious that they never mention CIA as the source of anything. Likewise, they were being temp stationed with DNI, and no DNI source is named.

        Just “White House officials” and “US officials”.

        The absence of information is itself a piece of information: NULL is a value that means “not any other value” rather than the commonly misunderstood meaning of “no value” (which would be self-contradictory). Spend as much time as I have crawling through code and databases looking for clues as to why a program doesn’t operate as you’d expect, and you understand that NULL means something. It does not mean nothing. It tells you that whatever process that results in a value in a similar position elsewhere did not occur in this case.

        Here, we have the absence of all else besides those two references.

        Why refer to other sources only as “US officials” rather than specify agency? That one is really the dead giveaway. What the hell is a “US official”, and why would someone specifically choose that term (it is used many times). The fit narrative is that a “US official” is someone they want to imply is in the Executive Branch, but gives them weasel room when they are eventually found to be in the Legislative. It’s the one term that covers both; ANY other term would distinguish one from the other, ergo this term was chosen because it obfuscates the difference.

        Ockham’s Razor says “WH officials” = counterespionage sting participants, “US officials” = House Democrats.

        Real story might be more complicated than that, but someone needs to bring some evidence, not just a rationale, to explain why this simpler solution isn’t valid. If this solution is valid, by Ockham’s Razor it is the most probable description of reality.

        Let me try to explain by example.

        The data set I expect from the story as given is that the SET of SOURCES reads like this:

        { White House, DNI, CIA, State }

        The data set we actually got goes like this:

        { White House, “US officials”}

        Liars tend not to make things up out of whole cloth, as they know those are easily found out. Easier lies to sustain are made by taking the truth and altering or removing the inconvenient bits.

        So really the set we have is:

        { White House, ALTERED/INVALID VALUE, NULL, NULL }

        The last three values, the anomalous data, need to be explained. My hypothesis may not be a perfect match with the truth but it is the most likely of all possibilities not invalidated by this data set.

As long as they can be depended upon to continue to do something so utterly stupid as what they just did here, Trump has nothing at all to worry about.

    So Daniel Goldman helped write the Schiff dossier. I’m betting if he gets called to testify- he claims the Hillary/Cheryl Mills and Comey/Richman defense and claims client/attorney privilege to avoid giving testimony. It’s just one other reason why they always have lawyers around.

    Atkinson laid bare. A moment to remember:

    “Michael Atkinson was the lawyer for the same DOJ-NSD players who: (1) lied to the FISA court (Judge Rosemary Collyer) about the 80% non compliant NSA database abuse using FBI contractors; (2) filed the FISA application against Carter Page; and (3) used FARA violations as tools for political surveillance and political targeting.

    Yes, that means Michael Atkinson was Senior Counsel for the DOJ-NSD, at the very epicenter of the political weaponization and FISA abuse.

    If the DOJ-NSD exploitation of the NSA database, and/or DOJ-NSD FISA abuse, and/or DOJ-NSD FARA corruption were ever to reach sunlight, current ICIG Atkinson -as the lawyer for the process- would be under a lot of scrutiny for his involvement.

    Yes, that gives current ICIG Michael Atkinson a strong and corrupt motive to participate with the Pelosi-Schiff/Lawfare impeachment objective.”

    My Fellow Americans

    RE: The Last Straw in Spades!
    Note: I have released the message below in one format or another several times since 1989. This time I have not censored a single word out of the lessons learned. I will not comment on any of the elements in the book I referenced except to say the likes of B. H. Obama, Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, Adam Schiff, the Clintons, and so many of their comrades in the political community and media are going to feel the pent-up anger of many of us veterans who along with our fellow Americans have been betrayed one time too many! I have seen politicians and bureaucrats at every level of government involved in every kind of crime one can imagine, but what the left and the swamp are/have been trying to do to our President and to every American since D. J. Trump came down that escalator has not only insulted the intelligence of the American people, but their freedom!

    Soldier/Cop/Grunt, Retired.

    In 1989 after serving 26 years as a soldier/cop and in my third year as a civilian police chief, I prepared 12 of the 15 lessons learned presented below as part of a book I was writing detailing my experiences as an American soldier and police officer. Everything I have seen, read, and heard since D.J. Trump walked down that escalator in Trump Towers has convinced me that all of the original 12 lessons learned and the three I added recently are more relevant today than they were 30 years ago. The behavior of most of the American political class, the American bureaucracy, the American media, and American Academia has also convinced me that God still loves Americans and America. I know this because God has sent us a true leader who has clearly displayed that he has mastered all of the Seven C’s of Leadership (see lessons learned #2). I believe God sent D.J. Trump here to lead America to a height we have never imagined. I also believe God has/is demonstrating that he has a sense of humor and knows how to call Americans to attention. Why else would he place so many blabbering idiots (i.e. media, politicians, bureaucrats, academicians, etc…) among us generally insulting the intelligence of the dumbest among us with their daily doses of pure manure? Today’s media, bureaucrats, academicians, and political class are the same and/or newer versions of those that inspired the lessons learned presented below and the referenced book yet to be published (due to the amount of still classified material therein). The title of the book may provide a hint or two as to my basic attitude. The book’s original title was: Rape, Pillage, Plunder; America You have Been Had! After B.H. Obama was elected to his second term I re-titled the book. The current title is: Rape, Pillage, Plunder; America You have Been Had. And, It’s Your Own Damn Fault!

    A Soldier/Cop’s Lessons Learned
    Note: In an attempt to bring the lessons learned into the current political climate I have inserted a short comment where I deemed appropriate.
    1. Soldiers (ground combat soldiers, that is) do not fight first and foremost for their country, the flag, motherhood, nor apple pie. Before all else, soldiers engaged in ground combat fight for their fellow soldiers and their unit.
    Note: Were this one not true I fear to imagine how many of us combat veterans would have already lost all control and commence to apply our skills against those who pose the greatest threat to the American people!
    2. The Seven C’s of Leadership according to a 1980 survey of 1646 of Vietnam era ground combat veterans listed of the order of their importance are; Candor, Competence, Consistency, Commitment, Courage, Compassion, and Courtesy. The reason the soldiers in the survey chose the word “candor” is because to them candor encompasses both omission and co-mission. To a combat soldier lack of absolute candor, be it co-mission or omission, are equal sins! In short, soldiers expect/demand absolute candor from their leaders before all else.
    Note: Members of Congress take note. In my opinion you on the left have proven you are masters of Co-mission, while you on the right have proven you are the masters of omission! In short, all of you have proven you are cowards and trying to instill the Seven C’s of Leadership in any of you is a waste of time!
    3. The most cost effective personnel management tool for incompetent personnel assigned to leadership positions in combat units (and probably elsewhere) is “Fragging!”
    Note: This is a forbidden subject for veterans. If you desire details send a self-addressed envelope with a note from your doctor attesting that you have the emotional strength to deal with stress.
    4. The American people are the most effectively lied to people in modern times thanks primarily to the American political class, the American bureaucracy, the American media, and American academia.
    5. Arrogance coupled with ignorance equals stupidity.
    6. The greatest threats to the American people are the corrupt and/or incompetent politicians/bureaucrats/academicians found at every level of government/academia, and the majority of the American so-called media.
    7. Most of the politicians/bureaucrats/academicians I have encountered during my years as a soldier/cop I most kindly refer to as; self-serving, witless, cowards.
    8. The American Profession of Arms and our brothers/sisters in blue have failed to protect the American people from all of their enemies, both foreign and most especially domestic.
    9. My guns were always turned in the wrong direction.
    10. Washington, DC is the most target rich environment I have encountered in all of my years as a soldier/cop.
    11. If recalled to active military service the only position I will accept is; Commander, Revolutionary Forces.
    12. There are only two primary requirements to be a career soldier and/or cop in America. One must be smart enough to do the work and dumb enough to take the job.
    13. American soldiers and police officers must in addition to mastering all of their professionally mandated tasks, learn to accomplish the same with at least one arm tied behind their backs and their vision impaired 50% or more. (Added 2019)
    14. After carefully watching the whole of the political class since Donald J. Trump walked down that escalator in Trump Tower to date, I can say without reservation that most of the group will sell their souls and our bodies just to remain in power. (Added 2019)
    Note: Sorry, not enough room herein to start to list the individual personalities whose activities will provide absolute proof of this statement.
    15. Want to see what the United States of America will look like if the left takes control of the government? Take your pick, New York City, Baltimore, Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles, or the complete package; California. (Added 2019)

    Soldier/Cop/Grunt, Retired
    Please, one final note: Contrary to the implications of several of my lessons learned, I have long ago abandoned any desire to negate (Negate, the procedure that the British SAS [Special Air Service] utilizes to transfer subjects from the persons of interest list to the persons no longer of interest list.) those of the any of four communities who would threaten and/or interfere with soldiers/cops actions to protect/serve the American people. No, these days I would support rounding up the most obnoxious of the communities, issuing each of them a tent and a bus ticket to California, and instructing them that if they leave California it better be on a boat heading to China!

    Schiff and Pelosi are the public face of impeachment 2.0, and taking all the incoming fire, especially Schiff. Schiff and his staff can’t keep their stories straight. Pelosi barely remembers what day of the week it is. We know the Lawfare gang sets up and runs the tactics and strategies day-to-day, but are there others running impeachment 2.0 at the very senior operational level – as Brennan/Comey/Clapper did for impeachment 1.0?

    Atkinson, for example, is not an operations guy, he’s a guy who took part in an operation. He’s the IG of the IC, a pretty senior position in the IC, and he doesn’t work for Schiff or Pelosi. Have others taken on the Brennan/Clapper role, calling the operational shots for someone like Atkinson?

    The ICWPA protects a government employee only if he discloses a matter of “urgent concern,” narrowly defined to include “a serious or flagrant” violation of law or executive order, a false statement to Congress (or willful withholding of information from Congress), or a reprisal against a person who reported a matter of urgent concern.275
    Bowing to the executive’s concerns, the legislation does not permit intelligence community employees to make direct disclosures to Congress.276 Instead, the employees must make disclosures to the appropriate Inspector General,277 who in turn must notify the relevant agency head.278 Furthermore, the employee may report directly to the congressional intelligence committees only if several onerous conditions are met.279

    n279 Id. § 403q(d)(5)(D) (explaining that an employee may report to intelligence committees if the Inspector General does not find the disclosure credible, the employee gives written notice to Inspector General, and obtains instructions from Director on how to contact them).

    This seems to make the Chairman of the HPSCI a co-conspirator in a knowing violation of Intelligence Community Directive 701

    Semiannual Report – October 2018 – March 2019
    Michael K. Atkinson – Inspector General of the Intelligence Community

    page 19
    Intelligence Community Directive 701
    There is a need to clearly distinguish whistleblowers from individuals who make unauthorized disclosures by taking it upon themselves to decide what classified information should be disclosed to the public. Whistleblowers make use of formal reporting procedures that will provide protection to the classified information and to the whistleblower. Any disclosure of classified information falling outside of these established procedures constitutes an unauthorized disclosure – not protected whistleblowing – and falls into the realm of insider threat behavior.
