DOJ-FBI “Small Group” Promote Defense of Spygate Operations – Former FBI/DOJ Officials Nervous, Hiring Lawyers…

The activity of the “small group” of coup plotters consists of three generalized subsidiary agencies: (1) DOJ/FBI, (2) CIA/ODNI, and (3) The State Department.

Within each “small group faction” a years-long review of their narrative constructs shows the groups have specific and unique media outlets for their offensive (’16, ’17) and defensive (’18, ’19) propaganda efforts.

•The DOJ/FBI faction of the “small group” leaks to narrative engineers at the New York Times and NBC. •The CIA/ODNI faction utilize the Washington Post and ABC; and •the State Dept. faction use CNN and CBS. Each faction uses the same reporters & pundits for their distribution. This pattern, albeit generalized, has been consistent for several years.

The originating media entity -utilizing the leaks, opinions and agenda of the faction most concerned- starts the process. The secondary media groups come in for support – reporting on the reporting; and then reporting on the reporting of the reporting… and so on. This process provides a concentric distribution effort to bolster the originating premise.

Similar to the Journ-o-list effort of Ezra Klein, all of the ideologically aligned reporters share information for the larger process of defending the prior activity and advancing a unified narrative. [Reference Buzzfeed’s Ali Watkins sharing leaks from SSCI Security Director James Wolfe to her peers at WaPo and New York Times while she had sex with the source to keep the information pipeline open.]

It is important to remember this concerted process whenever we are reviewing media articles concerning the matters of interest to each of the “small group” factions.

In essence, the propagandists within the media are the same; and the sources for the positions reflected in the articles are the same. Wash, rinse and repeat depending on the identified risk.

So today we see NBC and the New York Times going “out front” on behalf of their interests. Referencing the faction each outlet represents we see the *reporting* is to defend the interests of the DOJ and FBI.

The first “small group” report is from NBC. Toplines:

  • The Durham investigation is more broad and therefore more troubling.
  • Durham is moving to interview current/former CIA and current/former Intelligence Community operatives.
  • The CIA and Intelligence Community operatives are hiring lawyers prior to speaking to Durham.
  • The Durham investigation appears again looking at the ICA (Intelligence Community Assessment); which again is the part of Small Group operation which constructed the ‘vast Russian conspiracy’ (election interference) narrative.
  • The Small Group is worried the investigation has now shifted into a possible criminal probe.
  • The Small Group members themselves have NOT been questioned. This is making them nervous; hence the reporting.
  • Barr and Durham visiting Italy, the U.K. and Australia to speak with Mifsud, Halper and Downer respectively is really making the Small Group nervous.

Here’s the key NBC paragraphs, emphasis mine:

(Via NBC) A review launched by Attorney General William Barr into the origins of the Russia investigation has expanded significantly amid concerns about whether the probe has any legal or factual basis, multiple current and former officials told NBC News.

[The “multiple current and former officials” are members of the small group.  Based on the outlet and the material, these members are DOJ and FBI officials].

The prosecutor conducting the review, Connecticut U.S. Attorney John Durham, has expressed his intent to interview a number of current and former intelligence officials involved in examining Russia’s effort to interfere in the 2016 presidential election, including former CIA Director John Brennan and former director of national intelligence James Clapper, Brennan told NBC News.

Durham has also requested to talk to CIA analysts involved in the intelligence assessment of Russia’s activities, prompting some of them to hire lawyers, according to three former CIA officials familiar with the matter. And there is tension between the CIA and the Justice Department over what classified documents Durham can examine, two people familiar with the matter said.

[Here we see Durham doing what we suspected five months ago. {Go Deep} Durham is looking at who put together the December 2016, Joint Analysis Report (JAR); and the January 2017, Intelligence Community Assessment (ICA); essentially the originating documents that promoted the vast Russian conspiracy and set the cornerstone for a special counsel investigation therein.]

With Barr’s approval, Durham has expanded his staff and the timeframe under scrutiny, according to a law enforcement official directly familiar with the matter.

[This is common sense.  If the ICA is a false political document, then guess what?  Yep, the entire narrative from the JAR and ICA is part of a big fraud (it is).  Then the construct of the special counsel probe (remember the “originating” construct), was false. (it was)]

[…] If Durham is conducting a criminal investigation, it’s not clear what allegations of wrongdoing are being examined. The Justice Department has not detailed any, and a spokeswoman declined to comment for this story.

“I don’t know what the legal basis for this is,” Brennan said, calling the probe “bizarre.”

[…] Justice Department officials have said that Durham has found something significant, and that critics should be careful.

[…] Skeptics who have been trying to track Durham’s movements say he has yet to interview key figures, including former deputy FBI director Andrew McCabe, former FBI agent Peter Stzrok and former FBI general counsel James Baker.

[“skeptics”?  Who are they?  …and why are they “trying to track Durham’s movements”?]

“Nobody who knows anything has been interviewed,” said a person in touch with those former officials.

[So the group is talking to themselves and using a third party to push their collective discussion into the media.  Important to note.]

[…] A Western intelligence official familiar with what Durham has been asking of foreign officials says his inquiries track closely with the questions raised about the Russia investigation in right-wing media.

[So some entity in the intelligence community, likely outside the U.S. , is in contact with the small group and keeping them apprised of what Durham is doing?  Interesting. Pay attention to what NBC is admitting here… Corrupt officials, co-conspirators, within the intelligence apparatus are monitoring John Durham; relaying information back to their allies; who then talk among themselves and coordinate media leaks based on the information they are able to extract from the tracking.   That’s a big admission.]

[…] The Senate intelligence committee examined the allegations about Downer, Mifsud and Halper, as part of its bipartisan investigation into the intelligence community’s assessment that Russia was responsible for attacking the 2016 election, and found nothing to substantiate any wrongdoing, a committee aide said. (read full article)

[Again, notice how the small group is utilizing the SSCI, and it is a committee aide within the SSCI that is leaking to NBC.  We already know the SSCI was completely compromised by the effort to remove President Trump from office. {Go Deep}  Part of that SSCI effort led to the discovery of SSCI Security Director James Wolfe leaking the FISA application to the media.  The SSCI was/is part of the coup/impeachment effort.]

(Go Deep)

Next up we look at the New York Times….

      It doesn’t sound like Barr is doing a cover up. He is diving way too deep and looking at the right stuff for this to be a cover up. The fact that he went with Durham suggest he does not trust anyone else on this mission. And he can see any classified info around the world. Which means Durham can see it. The fact that they decided to investigate Rudy is also a positive sign they are making people uncomfortable. They can’t remove Trump and Durham has a year to go. Time seems to be on our side. The small group is not going to beat Trump to the Court House.

        That is a good point. POTUS has authorized him to declassify i.e. he can examine anything that the President is allowed to see. So in theory, these spy agencies cannot stonewall with “it’s classified beyond your need to know”.

        Good post. It’s easy to assume that if Barr is “investigating” then the perps are toast. Which has not, to date, been the case. Think IG referrals and DOJ declining to prosecute.

        Barr could investigate this for a thousand years with the same results. Or conclude (somehow) that there was no wrong doing, or go back to the “intent” cop out. Or see it through and do the right thing, based on the evidence. Regardless of where that evidence finally stops.

      At this long-past-endurance point in President Trump’s tenure, one can only throw a “Hail Mary” hope that Bill Barr has some imminent, high-level indictments ready to serve. He hasn’t been there that long, granted, but time is seriously short for a carpet bombing of the Deep State. This time, there is cause for optimism.
      President Trump has recently publicly and deliberately mentioned the Lyin’ King as the originator of this coup. One thing is clear; if Trump says it, regardless of the Jackass Party’s condemnation and derision, the President has had a 100% accuracy rating.

        Here’s a list of laws for which Fed Employees can be fired. Hillary and the rest of them hit every box….GO GETEM….

        ====================================================

        Government – Wide Ethics Laws
        These laws apply to all Federal employees and carry criminal penalties for noncompliance. They also serve as a basis for the ethics regulations known as the Standards of Ethical Conduct for Employees of the Executive Branch, 5 C.F.R. Part 2635.

        Bribery of Public Officials Prohibited – 18 U.S.C. § 201

        This statute prohibits a Government employee from directly or indirectly receiving or soliciting anything of value in exchange for being influenced in the performance or nonperformance of any official act, including giving testimony, or in exchange for committing fraud.

        Restrictions on Compensated Representational Activities – 18 U.S.C. § 203

        This statute prohibits a Government employee from seeking or accepting compensation for representational services (rendered either personally or by another) before a Federal court or Government agency in a particular matter in which the United States is a party or has a direct or substantial interest. Representational services include any communications on behalf of another party with the intent to influence the Government. There are limited exceptions, such as for representing oneself or one’s immediate family or a person or estate for which the employee acts as a fiduciary, but not where the employee has participated officially or has official responsibility.

        Restrictions on Acting as an Agent or Attorney – 18 U.S.C. § 205

        This statute prohibits a Government employee from acting as an agent or attorney for anyone before a Federal court or Government agency, whether compensated or not. There are limited exceptions, such as for representing other Federal employees in personnel matters; representing a not-for-profit organization in certain matters, if a majority of its members are current Federal employees or their spouses or dependent children; representing oneself or one’s immediate family or a person or estate for which the employee acts as a fiduciary, but not where the employee has participated officially or has official responsibility; or acting as an agent or attorney, in certain matters, for a tribal organization or intertribal consortium to which the employee is assigned under the Intergovernmental Personnel Act or 25 U.S.C. § 48, after advising the Government in writing of any personal and substantial involvement the employee has had in connection with the matter.

        Post-Government Employment Restriction – 18 U.S.C. § 207

        This statute does not bar an individual, regardless of rank or position, from accepting employment with any private or public employer. It does impose restrictions on certain communications that a former employee may make as a representative of a third party back to the Federal Government. These restrictions are explained more fully in the “Restrictions on Post-Government Employment” section of this website.

        Conflicts of Interest – 18 U.S.C. § 208

        This statute prohibits a Government employee from participating personally and substantially, on behalf of the Federal Government, in any particular matter in which he or she has a financial interest. In addition, the statute provides that the financial interests of certain other “persons” are imputed to the employee (that is, the interests are the same as if they were the employee’s interests). These other persons include the employee’s spouse, minor child, general partner, an organization in which he or she serves as an officer, trustee, partner or employee, and any person or organization with whom the employee is negotiating or has an arrangement concerning future employment. There are limited regulatory exemptions authorized by the Office of Government Ethics, an exception for certain financial interests arising solely out of Native American birthrights, and a very limited waiver authority.

        Supplementation of Federal Salary Prohibited – 18 U.S.C. § 209

        This statute prohibits a Government employee from receiving any salary, or any contribution to or supplementation of salary; or anything of value from a non-federal entity as compensation for services he or she is expected to perform as a Government employee.

        Impartiality in Performing Official Duties – 5 C.F.R. § 2635.502

        You must take appropriate steps to avoid any appearance of loss of impartiality in the performance of your official duties. Beyond the conflict of interest law discussed at 18 U.S.C. § 207, ethics regulations require all employees to recuse themselves from participating in an official matter if their impartiality would be questioned. The regulations identify three circumstances where employees should carefully consider whether their impartiality is subject to question: 1) where the financial interests of a member of the employee’s household would be impacted; 2) if a party or party representative in an official matter has a “covered relationship” with the employee; and 3) any other time the employee believes his or her impartiality may be subject to question. The term “covered relationship” includes a wide variety of personal and business relationships that an employee or his family members may have with outside parties. Employees who find that a party or representative of a party is a person with whom the employee or a family member has a personal or outside-of-work/unofficial business relationship should consult with their ethics counselor before taking official action in a particular matter.

      The problem is, not strictly limited to this situation, those who have the power to classify what is and what is not top secret get to decide what gets classified. There is no normal review process to remove that classification from any documents so marked. If they wish, they can make a list of how much toilet paper they require top secret. Or what they had for lunch.

      Through this method, they can classify docs and then say “Oh gee, there is lots and lots of evidence and we would show you, but it is all classified. So sorry.” Anyone who has the clearances to search for such then have to wade through a virtual sea of toilet paper requisitions and other nonsense to find what is really important.

      Once it’s all put together, the subjects of investigation will be presented with the goods against them. Chances are some will go for a plea bargain deal rather than risk more onerous punishments.

        The day I read the strzok/page text in late Summer of 2017 I knew it was a coup. In the next few months, as more info was revealed, I knew brennan orchestrated it. The not so simple task is proving it and finding the obama admistration was knowingly involved. They all need to be exposed and disgraced along with foreign intelligence operations who took part in it. I don’t know what laws were broken or if charges can be brought.

    It seems Durham is following what the Attorney General outlined in his testimony and following the leads.

    What always stuck out to me is how much emphasis Barr placed on the meeting in the Oval Office the day before the Goldnen Shower set up that involved Obama,Biden,Comey,Brennan,Clapper,Rice and Rodgers…

    Sounds like Durham and Barr are subject to a conspiracy to obstruct justice . I hope they and their staff have bulletproof security. I suspect that Trump has the right man in the wings to help the cause of justice. Remember , when Rudy took on the mob in NYC everyone said it could never be done and then it was lights out for the mobs grip on the city. Very similar times . I can feel another Rudy special on the horizon. RICCO Rudy to the rescue. TRump and Rudy ,with their big apple experiences ,are uniquely equipped to gear the tiger by the tail and kill it. Have faith my friends.

      The coup members could very well be looking to arrange and accident for Barr and Durham, if they get to near the truth.

      So if this investigation is more than a show, Durham and Barr would be well advised to travel with a number of body guards.

    Accepting that the BHO Administration not only instigated but facilitated every aspect of this incipient Police State coup d’oeuvre –whose origins actually date from c. 1961– emerging details buttress profound institutional questions.

    Given that the “quis custodiet” conundrum (who will guard the guards?) is likely irresolvable, what long-term behavioral disincentives (vs. legal-schemegal word-games or nominal “oversight” devolved to Deep State complicity) can a civil polity enact to render hyper-partisan subversion not just difficult but against snuffle-grunting elitists’ financial interests [which, let’s face it, is all dirigiste rentiers ever care about]?

    The timing of this is significant. Note the ‘source’ connection is DOJ/FBI. That is where the Horowitz FISA report hits very soon. And the perps have already reviewed their individual pieces of it. So fear what might be coming—possible criminal indictments from Durham based on Nunes (public) and Horowitz (not yet public) criminal referrals.

    Note the NBC spin toward the EC predicate which is NOT DoJ but IC. Sets up the defense storyline ‘we were fooled by IC—Clapper and Brennan’. Except that doesn’t work as a 18USC1018 felony defense because Comey testified under oath that the Steele dossier was unverified, yet signed the Woods procedure FISA warrant application anyway. McCabe testified under oath that without the dossier FBI would not have gotten the FISA warrant approved. And Kevalec from State told FBI in writing that Steele AND his dossier were unreliable. Case closed.

    Clapper and Brennan must know Durham has the goods on them also. Especially after Sidney Powell on Tuesday requested the data from Mifsud’s two cellphones that Durham and Barr apparently secured in Italy. Clapper has already publicly test run his version of the Nuremberg defense:’just following Obama orders’.

      How much time will it take to build legally airtight criminal cases against Comey, Brennan, Clapper, and Yates? Six months? A year?

      What are the political implications if these indictments are issued before the 2020 election?

      Concerning how the defense lawyers would frame their legal strategies, what are the legal implications, if any, were these indictments to be issued before the 2020 election?

      I’m still of the opinion that regardless of how legally solid the indictments are, the most prominent leaders of the Spygate coup won’t cop a plea. Nor will their foot soldier participants in the plot.

      They will all choose instead to go to trial in a Washington DC venue and take their chances with what they hope will be a sympathetic jury, with the expectation they’ll all be acquitted.

        An opinion based only on public info. Durham has been on the job about 6 months. White collar crime investigations take typically up to a year (rule of thumb).

        The case against Comey and Yates on at least felony 18USC§1018 is already made, just needs to be buttoned up evidence wise. Likely sealed indictments are already in hand.

        The case against Clapper and Brennan is being made. More complicated, because maybe the charges are conspiracies like the Nunes criminal referrals.The big new news per Sidney Powell is that Durham has Mifsud’s two cell phones, plus his deposition that Giuliani also has. Those phones should give Durham the info on who directed Western intel asset Mifsud to do what. That may lead to Rice and others. My guess based on Durham expansion and Durham Barr Italy trip, another ~three months.
