Durham's Trail Leading to SSCI – Ali Watkins Never Slept With James Wolfe – It Was a Cover Story….

With media reporting that U.S. Attorney John Durham has expanded the timeline and scope of his investigation into U.S. government and intelligence community activity during the 2016 election, there’s an interesting quote from NBC:

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

The expanded investigative timeline is now into May 2017 when Mueller was appointed special counsel, and would mean all of the preceding (and surrounding) activity leading up to Mueller would be reviewed.   With that carefully in mind….
During the 2016 effort to weaponize the institutions of government against the outside candidacy of Donald Trump, the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (SSCI) was headed by Richard Burr and Dianne Feinstein.  After the 2016 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 appears to have 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 trail for this plausible deniability process and ongoing soft-coup effort first surfaces with Dan Jones appearing in the early 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)

Former Feinstein staffer Dan Jones talking to Christopher Steele in April 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, 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 going deeper in the SSCI weeds, let me pause and explain the important specifics behind why the FBI was interviewing Bruce Ohr about Chris Steele; by overlaying what was going on in/around early 2017.
Chris Steele wasn’t alone in creating the “dossier”.  Heck, the purpose of Fusion-GPS contracting Steele; and the purpose of the FBI engaging with Steele; was the laundry value of having a known intelligence officer validate political opposition research which the FBI could use against Donald Trump.  The reality is: most of the raw material and research inside the dossier was from Glenn Simpson and Nellie Ohr at Fusion GPS.
The ‘small group’ inside the DOJ and FBI always knew the provenance of the material; the plan and intent was to utilize Fusion-GPS for their political purposes.
Everyone carrying out this operation, all of the corrupt entities within it, knew the material from Chris Steele was essentially political opposition research. Many of those same people later 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 is the same time-frame where Fusion is being paid by Dan Jones to facilitate the calls for a special counsel.  Fusion drives that narrative with structured leaks to media.
Steele’s support 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 its hands…. and they needed to evaluate the position of Steele.  Steele could be a risk if he was not supporting the team playbook. That’s the driving purpose behind all of this 2017 “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.
Additionally, in support of the 2017 use of Chris Steele to frame the Russia narrative, the CIA, FBI, ODNI and aggregate intelligence community simultaneously pushed the December 2016 Joint Analysis Report (JAR) and the January 2017 Intelligence Community Assessment (ICA), as evidence to support their Russia narrative.
Now, where’s John Durham been spending his time looking, and what part of the period is he looking at?  Yes, the JAR and ICA construct.

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.  (Link)

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).
In early 2017 Adam Waldman and Dan Jones were facilitating a plausibly deniable information pipeline from Chris Steele to the SSCI and Senator Mark Warner.  At the same time, and for the same purposes, DOJ official 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 corrupt planning activity is what the some unknown DOJ and FBI officials are hiding behind the Bruce Ohr 302 redactions.
Now remember, U.S. Attorney John Durham has interviewed Christopher Steele; so too has DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz.
It was AFTER those interviews with Christopher Steele when the IG report was delayed and reports started surfacing that Durham was adding additional resources, expanding his probe and retaining former FBI officials to assist.  It was after those interviews when Durham and Barr started taking the background material of Italy (Mifsud), Australia (Downer) and the U.K. (Halper) more seriously.
Now, where does the current DOJ and FBI small group start to place their defensive positions?  This is where it all starts coming back together:

[…] 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 yesterday the small group is utilizing the SSCI, and it is a committee aide within the SSCI that is leaking to NBC.  The small group are to pulling the Senate Intelligence Committee back into the picture.  That brings Dianne Feinstein, Mark Warner, Richard Burr, Daniel Jones, Adam Waldman and James Wolfe back in.
Why go there?….
Why is the small group pulling the SSCI back into the picture now?…
Because they have to.
In 2018 the DOJ and FBI covered-up the corruption evident during the 2017 pre-Mueller effort.  The current position of the small group is to force the 2019 DOJ and FBI to do it again.
Throughout the 2016 and 2017 effort, a part of one branch of the United States government, the U.S. Senate through the SSCI, was assisting the efforts of the DOJ and FBI against a candidate, president-elect and later United States President, Donald Trump.

The 2017 time period covers Robert Mueller as Special Counsel, Jeff Sessions as AG, Rod Rosenstein as Deputy, Chris Wray replacing James Comey as FBI Director, and eventually David Bowditch replacing Andrew McCabe as Deputy.   For all of the important decision-making Jeff Sessions was cut-out by design.  For example, the person who made the decisions about SSCI Director James Wolfe’s prosecution was Rod Rosenstein.
Bear with me….
As a result of a FOIA release in Mid December 2018, Judicial Watch revealed how the State Department was feeding “classified information” to multiple U.S. Senators on the Senate Intelligence Committee by the Obama administration immediately prior to President Donald Trump’s inauguration:

The documents reveal that among those receiving the classified documents were Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA), Sen. Ben Cardin (D-MD), and Sen. Robert Corker (R-TN).
Judicial Watch obtained the documents through a June 2018 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit filed against the State Department after it failed to respond to a February 2018 request seeking records of the Obama State Department’s last-minute efforts to share classified information about Russia election interference issues with Democratic Senator Ben Cardin (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of State (No. 1:18-cv-01381)).
The documents reveal the Obama State Department urgently gathering classified Russia investigation information and disseminating it to members of Congress within hours of Donald Trump taking office.  (read more)

The impeachment program was a plan, an insurance policy of sorts; a coordinated effort between corrupt politicians in the Senate and hold-over allies in the executive; however, because she didn’t want to participate in this – Senator Dianne Feinstein abdicated her vice-chair position to Senator Mark Warner.  [Background Here]
This is the pre-cursor to utilizing Robert Mueller.  A plan that was developed soon after the 2016 election.  The appointment of a special counsel was always the way they were going to hand-off and continue the investigation into Trump; but they needed a reason for it.
The continued exploitation of the Steele Dossier was critical; thus they needed Chris Steele to be solid.  And the continued manipulation of the media was also critical; thus they needed Fusion-GPS to continue.  [Dan Jones paid both]
While Mark Warner was communicating with Adam Waldman and Dan Jones as a conduit to Chris Steele, the FBI/DOJ team was communicating through Bruce Ohr to Chris Steele (and by extension to Nellie Ohr and Fusion GPS).
Part of Warner’s role was to weaponize the Legislative branch to advance the ‘Muh Russia conspiracy’, a fundamental necessity if a special counsel was going to have justification.
The SSCI, and the security protocols within it, were structurally part of the plan; hence the rapid information from Obama’s State Dept. to the SSCI and Senate participants in the last moments prior to departing.
♦ On March 17th, 2017, the Senate Intelligence Committee took custody of the FISA application used against Carter Page.   We know the FISA court delivered the read and return Top-Secret Classified application due to the clerk stamp of March 17, 2017.

(Page FISA Application, Link)

The FISA application (original and first renewal) was delivered to Senate Security Director James Wolfe.  Senator Mark Warner entered the basement SCIF shortly after 4:00pm on March 17, 2017, the day it was delivered (texts between Warner and Waldman):
Now, when SSCI Security Officer James Wolfe was indicted (unsealed June ’18), we could see the importance of the March 17th date again:

(Wolfe Indictment Link)

We can tell from the description within the indictment the FBI investigators are describing the FISA application.  Additionally Wolfe exchanged 82 text messages with reporter Ali Watkins.  The FISA application is 83 pages with one blank page.
The logical conclusion was that Wolfe text Ali Watkins 82 pictures of the application.
FBI Investigators applied for, and received a search warrant for the phone records of journalist Ali Watkins.  Ms. Watkins was notified in February 2018, three months after Wolfe was questioned by FBI investigators in December 2017.
However, despite the overwhelming (public) circumstantial evidence that Wolfe leaked the FISA application, he was never charged with leaking classified information.  Wolfe was only charged with lying three times to federal authorities, and he pled down to one count of lying to the FBI.
CTH made the case in mid 2018 that someone at the DOJ had influenced a decision not to charge Wolfe with the leaking of the FISA application; despite the FBI and DOJ having direct evidence of Wolfe leaking classified information.
The logical reason for the Rosenstein DOJ not to charge Wolfe with the FISA leak was because that charge would ensnare powerful Senators on the powerful committee.  Worse still, in hindsight we now see how that committee was working to aide the purposes and intents of the corrupt DOJ and FBI officials as they built their impeachment agenda.
Remember, the SSCI has intelligence oversight of the DOJ, DOJ-NSD, FBI and all associated counterintelligence operations. Additionally, when the FBI was investigating Wolfe for leaking classified documents, according to their court filings they had to inform the committee of the risk Wolfe represented.  Who did they have to inform?.. Chairman Richard Burr and Vice-Chair Mark Warner.
Think about it.  Both gang-of-eight members (Warner/Burr), who happened -as a consequence of the jaw dropping implications- to be two SSCI members who were warned by the FBI that Wolfe was compromised…. and they, along with Feinstein in 2016, were the co-conspirators who used James Wolfe.  The ramifications cannot be overstated.
Any criminal charges for leaking classified intelligence information against James Wolfe would likely result in a major scandal where the SSCI itself was outlined as participants in the weaponization of government for political intents.  Thus, the perfect alignment of interests for a dropped charge and DC cover-up.  REMEMBER:

(Source)

If it already wasn’t transparently sketchy as hell, in an act of serendipity and self-preservation, the accused Security Director James Wolfe evidenced the schemes when he threatened to subpoena members of the SSCI as part of his defense. [See Here]

[…] Attorneys for James A. Wolfe sent letters to all 15 senators on the committee, notifying them that their testimony may be sought as part of Mr. Wolfe’s defense, according to two people familiar with the matter.
[…] Mr. Wolfe’s defense lawyers are considering calling the senators as part of the proceedings for a variety of reasons, including as potential character witnesses and to rebut some of the allegations made by the government in the criminal complaint, these people say.  (link)

Immediately after threatening to subpoena the SSCI (July 27, 2018), the DOJ (Rosenstein authorizing) cut a deal with Wolfe and dropped the charges down to a single charge of lying to investigators.  However, someone in the FBI who was doing the investigative legwork wasn’t happy with that decision.
The overwhelming circumstantial evidence that Wolfe leaked the FISA application went from a strong suspicion, to damn certain (after the plea deal) when the DOJ included a sentencing motion in mid-December 2018.
On December 15th, 2018 the DOJ filed a response to the Wolfe defense teams’ own sentencing memo (full pdf), and within the DOJ response they included an exhibit (#13) written by the FBI [redacted] special agent in charge, which specifically says: “because of the known disclosure of classified information, the FISA application”… Thereby admitting, albeit post-plea agreement, that Wolfe did indeed leak the damn FISA:

(link to document)

Right there, in that FBI Special Agent description is the bombshell admission that James Wolfe leaked the Carter Page FISA application to journalist Ali Watkins at Buzzfeed.
We know the special agent who wrote exhibit #13 in the December filing was Special Agent Brian Dugan, Asst. Special Agent in Charge, Washington Field Office.  The same investigator who originally signed the affidavit in the original indictment against Wolfe.
So with hindsight there was absolutely no doubt that James Wolfe leaked the 83-page Carter Page FISA application on March 17, 2017.  Period.  It’s all documented with circumstantial and direct evidence; including the admissions from the FBI agent in charge.
So, why was SSCI Security Director James Wolfe allowed to plea to a single count of lying to investigators?
Back to where this started….
During the 2016 and 2017 effort to weaponize the institutions of government against the outside candidacy of Donald Trump, the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (SSCI) was a participating entity.  Dianne Feinstein, Richard Burr, Mark Warner, Daniel Jones, and James Wolfe were all participants of varying degrees.
The small group within the DOJ and FBI, now being investigated by Bill Barr, John Durham and Michael Horowitz, are pushing the SSCI back into the spotlight in an effort to utilize all of the legislative branch participants as a shield.   It’s the James Wolfe defense.

  1. CopperTop says:

    Many questioned if Strozk/Page were lovers. But very few questioned if Al and Wolf were not.

    • chipin8511 says:

      They were not lover either fabricated

      • Garavaglia says:

        Yep. This is why Trump pounds them with the lover lie..to make them own it.

      • Firefly says:

        They’d rather have his wife think he’s cheating rather than the truth. That tells you just how bad the situation really is.

        • Simply another unavoidable aspect of The James Wolf Defense…
          Smells like popcorn.

        • margarite1 says:

          Or does it explain why his wife didn’t dump him…because it was a lie?

          • Lucille says:

            That’s always a possibility…I mean, look at the guy. Can you really envision the Ali person being Mata Hari with that? However, it could also be that his wife couldn’t care less what he does. The same with Strozk’s wife. And apparently Page’s husband is either OK with it or Lisa has told him it’s a lie.
            Could go either way…and either way, it’s sickening. Good grief what a whole group of disreputable and criminal seditionists! While I hope that all repent, confess to their crimes, willingly serve time to pay for them, then go on to lead exemplary lives…I’m not holding my breath.

      • elizabethraynorshort says:

        Strzok and Page weren’t lovers, either. More cover.

    • Raptors2020 says:

      I smell a lot of euphemizing going on (and it’s not the asparagus he ate).
      Utilize Fusion-GPS for political purposes?
      Support a false framework?
      The continued manipulation of the Media?
      Facilitate the call for a special counsel?
      $50 million buys a lot of manipulating and facilitating.
      Ole Feinstein remembers Watergate and “Follow the Money”: perhaps she got out when the bribes turned into serious cash.

    • Thinker says:

      If Wolfe was not having sex with Ms. Watkins, what was his motive for turning over the FISA to her? Was Dan Jones paying him? Anyone care to guess how much he got paid? He risked his career and pension to leak the FISA document (all 82 pages), but what was he getting in return?

      • 1riot1ranger says:

        What, indeed? The gist of the article here is the Senators were asking him to, and providing him cover, but that doesn’t sound reasonable.

        • fabrabbit says:

          Members of the SSCI (Burr/Warner) requested the FISA document intentionally so Wolfe could have access to leak it. That was the plan. But they had to know it would blow back on them if he was caught. I’m trying to remember how they caught Wolfe. I’ll have to go back to review.

      • WhiteBoard says:

        To get the story in the public to generate cover for the Republicans to demand special council…
        See how the works?
        National security threat is this cover up because they keep having to cover up.

    Just when you thought it was safe for your head to stop spinning, Sundance provides more solid due diligence proof about what’s been going on to take out our President. Great Job, Sundance.

    This explains why 0bama’s corrupt and socialist Democrats are as calm, confident, and composed as rats trapped in coffee cans…

    • littleanniefannie says:

      The next Bureau of Labor Statistics report will likely note an extreme shortage of lawyers. The DoJ/FBI/CIA/DNI, etc small group is large enough and corrupt enough to suck the quota of lawyers at least out of DC/Va/Md and other neighboring states!

      • Despicable Me says:

        Nope. Not even close. Can’t swing a dead cat in the DC or the surrounding VA or MD suburbs without hitting a lawyer.

  4. fedup says:

    Our government is too big.

    • margarite1 says:

      Absolutely – they have too much money to throw around on their schemes. I believe if the graft were cut out and our government only did what it’s supposed to we could get rid of the national debt and cut our taxes. It would put the rats out of business plus a lot of the GOP if “get rich in DC” were put to an end.

      • Your Tour Guide says:

        You are very wise.
        Allowing congress to pass anything that results in
        a slush fund being established is a license to steal.
        Social security, HUD, Title 1 education, ESOL,
        The Eisenhower highway trust…….
        A short list of programs we’ve been bullshitted into
        accepting as beneficial to us. When the main purpose

      Killing might have the opposite effect: Joe Valachi talked because they were trying to kill him.
      Right now, they have a vainglorious sense of their rectitude. Look how often the weasel Comey brags about his honor.

  8. 1riot1ranger says:

    Still difficult to figure out. There are gaps that need to be filled it for sure. But I think we have the idea-the SSCI is going to be dumped on by the conspirators because they are Senators that either can’t or won’t be prosecuted.

    • littleanniefannie says:

      Don’t I remember Burr announcing a while back that he would not run again? How about his twin and DiFi? Any shred of decency and they would resign in shame. Zero decency. Is the entire SSCI up to their eyeballs in swamp water?

    • fabrabbit says:

      I wonder about this. Is it too damaging (to our institutions) if members of theSSCI are found to be corrupt? Some suggest this. I don’t think so.

      • jebg46 says:

        Never! They must be brought to justice. This wasn’t some stupid political dirty trick that Dershowitz keeps claiming. This was sedition, a coup to oust our President.

  9. littleanniefannie says:

    Richard Burr needs to stand up to the people of North Carolina, Mark Warner to the people of Virginia and DiFi to the people of California and explain to them why as their representatives they perpetrated a fraud on them. Then they need to explain to the American people why as members of the Gang of 8 they betrayed the people by lying to them about James Wolfe. Along with these 3, Cardin and Corker need to explain themselves.
    This kind of behavior is enough to expunge their service In the Senate and all benefits associated with their betrayal of the American people.

    • CountryDoc says:

      Corker has resigned. Someone remind me of his role in this.

      • jeans2nd says:

        Go back up to the part about Judicial Watch’s State Dept FOIA, right under “Bear with me.” You will find
        “…As a result of a FOIA release in Mid December 2018, Judicial Watch revealed how the State Department was feeding “classified information” to multiple U.S. Senators on the Senate Intelligence Committee…”
        Keep reading, you will understand why Corker resigned.

      Losing benefits is not enough, they need to go to jail!

  10. Elric says:

    If Attorney General Barr has to arrest and indict a number of Senators and Members of the House of Representatives, so be it. That is a feature, not a bug, of our system of justice. Bring them all to account. And no matter what other charges may be instituted against them, I believe conspiracy is pretty much always a felony.

  11. Zy says:

    So can any of this be exposed by means other than a POTUS tweet? I want sedition charges against Burr and Warner and a nice bipartisan participation trophy to club one another with in prison.

    • theresanne says:

      Maybe a Republican Congressman/woman should read this article aloud on the floor of Congress.
      If Adam Schiff can read a lie into the Congressional Record, why can’t one of our guys read the truth?

  12. KJinCton says:

    I’ve got three(four) questions at this time.
    First, did I miss where in this it confirms no relationship between Watkins and Wolfe…(I may have missed that…it was a lot to absorb). And what is the significance of that?
    Second, how were the text messages from Warner and Walden obtained? Did these come from Walden? I know these have been around for quite a while, but I don’t remember hearing if Walden had provided these and I can’t imagine them coming from Warner.
    Finally, I haven’t seen Bag-piping Barr for a bit. Are we thinking that Durham is getting to the bottom of everything and Barr is pushing it?
    Appreciate all of the fine investigative work you do. I’m trying to educate as many as I can in my circle of influence here in Georgia.

    • Zy says:

      “Durham has found something significant”. Sundance is saying that is no sexual relationship between Wolfe and Watkins. If that was lie then it was done as a diversion. A diversion to aid a coverup. Durham says hmmmm, something fishy.

      • msalicia56 says:

        It all sounds like a scene from “House of Cards”. Given the penchant of the Democrats for living in fantasyland, I would not be surprised of any script they followed to achieve their ends.

    • Bucknutguy says:

      What SD is saying is that Wolfe didn’t disclose to his paramour because hubbada hubbada. He disclosed to her on direction from someone(s) on the SCCI.

      • All Too Much says:

        The why question.
        Your explanation answer the diversion as the the why, the motive.
        Who, what, when, where, and not we see the why, and the reason for the diversion.
        A bulb went on in my head.
        Thank you for answering the diversion question.

        • Bucknutguy says:

          Because Gang of Eight, including Burr and Warner were fully aware, on board and perhaps, even, behind the coup attempt.
          They are principals in this drama, not merely observers.
          The Senate is, these days, equivalent to the House of Lords in England circa 1700. They are effectively elected for life and use their positions for self service. If you think one minute a Senator would ever give up their lifetime of graft for a 4 year, or 8 year president, then you are naive at best and ignorant at worse.
          No Republican Senator will ever forfeit their divine seat to protect our President Trump

    • All Too Much says:

      “First, did I miss where in this it confirms no relationship between Watkins and Wolfe…(I may have missed that…it was a lot to absorb). And what is the significance of that?”
      The significance of the relationship, real or not, and why it was used, is something I cannot get my head around. Maybe it will dawn on us, or someone else.
      Anyone?

        If there was no relationship, only two people KNOW for sure. Durham had to find out from one of those two. If Wolfe, is Wolfe now cooperating? What/whom is he offering up for a reduced sentence? (I really doubt Watkins would be cooperating.)

      • Searkreb says:

        It means he wasn’t giving her info for sex. He was giving her info because his senator bosses told him to.

    • Amy2 says:

      I would like to see (if there are any) text messages between Wolfe and Watkins. Was this so quiet that she didn’t need to be out denying there was an affair? She would be concerned about her credibility, yes?

  16. Troublemaker10 says:

    If the Wolf plea was a corrupt move by DOJ to cover up crimes from within wouldn’t that be obstruction, conspiracy, witness tampering?
    Would there be grounds to null the plea deal with Wolf based on that and for Durham to flip him as a witness against the SSCI members?
    Or flip Rosenstein with a plea deal or immunity deal? Rosenstein knows everything . Get Rosenstein to sing and you’d have everything. Everything!

    • Perot Conservative says:

      See my post below. $50 FREAKING MILLION ain’t investigation money … sounds like payoff money to me. No new facts. A schlub like Steele, now discredited, can probably be had, part time, for $200 an hour or even $20,000 a month retainer.
      Was Steele paid off? Maybe he diesn’t fall under our legal system, but say he got $2 Million quid, did he report it on his British taxes? Leverage!
      Was Wolff paid off for taking a dive? Who paid his likely substantial legal bills? (Flynn got taken to the cleaners for $13 Million … to plead guilty!! That firm should be shamed into returning 80% of the money.) Not his wife!
      What’s the old adage, follow the money.
      Treepers – if Durham now had a criminal investigation going, and has subpoenaed bank records, would the banks tell the client? Or could that be kept secret?

      • Your Tour Guide says:

        Why can’t WE follow the money????
        Start with the lower level (print, online) MSM types.
        Who from Buzzfeed, Yahoo News, Mother Jones, Esquire,
        Rolling Stone has been bad mouthing Trump the worst, the
        most consistent? I’m sure others can add to this list. This is
        off the top of YTG’s head.
        Tie it into the timeline. After Dan Jones got his 50 million to spread
        around, WHO umped the ante on the viciousness, length, frequency
        of their articles?
        We’re talking 50 million dollars. The big boys at CNN, NBC, MSNBC,
        ABC, CBS are already receiving fat paychecks. The print persons?
        Not so much. NPR would also be a great place to look, as would
        Pacifica Radio, PBS.
        Who, since Dan Jones got his 50 million worth of seed money has been
        living large? New home, bitchin apartment in a much better zip code,
        nice new wheels. Even sending out for food every day, when they’d been
        brown bagging it to make the rent.
        This would be the ideal sting for Project Veritas. Just wish the time wasn’t
        so short. Basically: Who do you know at the media place you work ( or
        worked) at that suddenly struck it rich after Trump won the campaign?
        And, how hard did this same person push the Russian collusion story in
        article after article, video after video, breaking news appearance on cable
        or broadcast?
        Years ago, I figured out someone at the local housing authority was on the take.
        It didn’t involve rocket science. It was as simple as briefly talking to the guy,
        and noticing the fact that he was wearing four hundred dollar Italian shoes to
        work. Thieves notice little things like that. It makes it easier for them to know
        who to approach. Especially if said person is lowest level of mid management.
        If Allie Watkins wasn’t getting banged by Wolfe, there’s a really good chance
        her circumstances,neighborhood, daily transportation improved dramatically after
        the dust settled.

  20. Perot Conservative says:

    What are the odds Steele isn’t employed, but got a substantial bribe? … a contract would be for $100 an hour or $400 an hour, or even a $20,000-a-month retainer.
    But think about it. $50 Freaking Million!
    Sounds like some key people got payoffs, bribes. Money is traceable, usually. If Steele deposited $2 Million in an offshore bank account, could he have a sword of damocles over his head – for tax evasion, taking a bribe, and such? Leverage!
    And the media. Are key members actually on the SSCI / Feinstein / DNC payroll? Did Wolff get a payoff for taking a dive? Who paid his likely substantial legal bill? I bet not his wife!
    Don’t forget, there appear to be no new relevatory facts coming from Steele or Dan Jones. Just muck raking.
    Further, don’t forget the OIG reportedly has a concurrent FBI Leak / Bribery investigation ongoing. Originally estimated at 50 – 100 individuals, possibly more. … we’ve seen a lot of false leaks … barium pills? Maybe even Joe diGenova is caught up in them given his multiple false Tick Tock revelations. (Love you, Joe!) If we still have hundreds of Patriots in the FBI… they could be making headway.
    QUESTION: anything illegal about reporters taking bribes or payoffs?
    P.S. No explanation for why Ali bumping uglies w a Troll staffer was a cover story?

      • dwpender says:

        I’m inclined to agree with you, but Sundance seems to think it significant. Might the significance be in exactly how Durham obtained the information (only 2 people could know for sure)? Is Wolfe now cooperating to get a lighter or reduced sentence? If so, what/whom is he offering up?

      I’ve re-read and am wondering the same.
      I’m inferring that the “affair” story served to give prosecutors at DOJ room to NOT charge Wolfe with leaking classified information. (In Washington it seems pillowtalk with someone-not-your-spouse is accepted as “giving away secrets under duress” — or underdressed.)
      Removing the leaking charge as unfortunate pillowtalk (like, he just blurted out 82 pages of a secret document during orgasm) would allow Wolfe to eventually pleed down to one count of lying to the FBI.
      …though I do buy the idea that telling a DC “journalist” that you have secret documents in your drawers crosses the line between foreplay and seduction-by-aphrodisiac.

  29. Bogeyfree says:

    Sundance,
    Maybe I’m slow or just don’t get it.
    What is IT that you think Durham has found that is significant?
    Is the answer, Durham may now know or have evidence that the SSCI was in on the coup from the beginning?
    I’ll take a simple yes or no reply.
    Thanks,

    • Bogeyfree says:

      And if yes, then the follow up just for clarification.
      Is the small group trying to bring the SSCI back into the picture for PROTECTION??
      And then the final question. If both are Yes answers then…….
      If Barr knows and has the evidence then doesn’t he have to take down the small group AND some Senators because now they go hand in hand in this coup?
      Please tell me I have all 3 questions right,

    • Jerry Joe says:

      Bogey, you are at least the 5th comment confused by the title and the contents of the article. After three re-reads, there is no value analysis or discussion of the speculative affair.

  32. Excuse me for beating a drum but-
    The CIA whistleblower seems to have NEVER submitted a “Complaint form” or “Urgent Concern Form” to the ICIG or CIA-IG.
    On September 26, Adam Schiff held a press conference and released an August 12, 2019 LETTER from the CIA Spy/ Whistleblower to Adam Schiff at HPSCI (House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence) and Richard Burr at SSCI (Senate Select Committee on Intelligence).
    Which alerted HPSCI and SSCI that a whistleblower complaint would be filed (it wasn’t) and attached Top-Secret documents for the HPSCI and SSCI to leak to force the ICIG to accept the whistleblower complaint.
    Just check the metadata on the .PDFs released by the Congressional intelligence committees and you can track the who-what-where of the CIA pushing Top-Secret information to Schiff and Burr BEFORE any Complaint was filed.

    PDJT hinted at the Texas rally that “maybe” somebody has Hellary’s lost emails.

    • WES says:

      Judith: I think President Trump’s use of the word “lovers” is a good indication to the not so small group that he knows they were not lovers. He is just rubbing it in their faces because he knows they can not do anything to contradict him or their “story” quickly falls apart! They must remain silent!

      • CopperTop says:

        One text between them has Lisa suggesting how Peter explain the urgency to his wife over an upcoming meeting together.
        Gohmert called PS out in the hearing about lying to his wife. There was no denial about the accusation.
        That’s the only flimsy evidence we have of an actual relationship.
        There might have been a ‘declined to prosecute’ DOJ OPM report on a DOJ employee engaging in an inappropriate relationship that refers to one of them.
        It looks like Lisa got a 45 day time frame to leave or defend herself (which is sometimes the process office romances use to decide who actually is keeping their job or which party feels generous to walk away)

    We need a large full sheet with blow up capabilities Showing all the connections. Maybe several sheets, each one referring to timelines going back to at least 2012, but maybe to post Reagan years
    Show the development of each cesspool of the swamp: CIA, DOJ, FBI, Bushes, Clintons and Clinton foundation, Chamber of Commers (and each complex: Military, Medical, Pharmaceutical, Green Industry, Exfiltration of wealth and the globalists, the Bilderbergs).
    With each development further away from a consitutional government and free market system, show the laws that were violated and how they were circumvented.

    Any wonder the likes of pathetic rats like Rosenstein can still stand on a stage and crack jokes about his suffering, and psychopathic narcissists like Comey can look up at giant trees and wonder if he can actually beat the height of it. To say the least…

    I’m sorry, but I’m so sick of this never-ending charade of a pretense of justice being sought. Remember, Barr said this investigation was designed to find if there was a “predicate” justifying their inquiry even if it was based on false premises. I’m afraid that is what is going to come out. As flawed and as criminal what these deep state miscreants tried to pull off, Barr will find that they still had some predicate that justified their fraudulent investigations.
    Sundance, through his meticulous research, has let us all know what actually transpired. But, I’m afraid none of that matters and Barr is going to let them off of the hook. This tick-tock, tick-tock stuff is driving me crazy. The IG has watered down his previous reports and I suspect the soon to be released FISA report will be the same thing. I sincerely hope I am wrong and am being unduly skeptical in my expectations. Biden can proudly claim the things that Trump is being falsely accused of, but it doesn’t seem to matter. I hope my faith can be restored that actual justice will be served.

    • gda53 says:

      Well, the IG Report in 2018 might have watered down, but that was under Rosenstein.
      The last IG mini-Report on Comey was NOT ‘watered down’, and happened under Barr’s watch. So rest easy there.
      There is no way Barr is going to hand-wave away a predicate as ridiculous as the one that was put forward. Everything that we know (through Sundance), Barr knows, and much more.
      In that context, while you may not have meant it that way, your comment “Barr will find that they still had some predicate that justified their fraudulent investigations” seems somewhat premature, to say the least.

  49. Okay. I just read the whole article. Nowhere did I see anything about what the headline stated. Maybe I’m just slower than most. So their sleeping together was a cover story but nowhere in the article was this topic even brought up. At all!

    • dwpender says:

      Sundance is intimating — which is unusual for him — that he has reliable sources who have supplied him with nonpublic information that Durham has discovered there was no intimate relationship between Wolfe and Watkins.
      The major significance is that only two people know for sure whether such a relationship existed. One of them is talking/cooperating. If it’s Wolfe, what/whom is he offering up to try to reduce his sentence?

      • WES says:

        Dw: I doubt it could be Wolfe because he has already been tried and sentenced. Doubt he can be tried a second time. So unlikely he would need to talk.

        • Despicable Me says:

          Just because one pleads guilty and is sentenced on one (or a set of) charge(s) doesn’t mean one can’t ever be prosecuted (or threatened with prosecution) again especially if new evidence of similar but unrelated crimes emerges.

        • bruzedorange says:

          Doubt it would be Ali, since by precedent or by law, journalists are not prosecuted for receiving classified information, whether from love-sick dupes or traitorous scum.
          Leverage against Wolfe might be inclusion in THE conspiracy. Or maybe Barr just threatened to leak that Wolfe is willing to testify against Hillary. I’d think anyone in DC fears arkancide more than the justice system.

    • WES says:

      Bill: The “lovers” label is just a “Oh, look squirrel” tactic used to divert your attention.
      That Wolf and Ali were not lovers and by remaining quiet proves that they are 100% part of the coup.
      President Trump’s use of the word “two lovers” is a way to publically tease the coup plotters that he knows that they were not lovers. Again their silence confirms that Lisa & Peter are 100% part of the coup.

    • All Too Much says:

      An affair explained why Wolfe sent her the FISC document.
      The true reason Wolfe sent it to her was at direction of committee coup participants, but affair myth covered that up and explained why Wolfe did what he did.
      The document needed to be leaked as part of the effort to set up a Special Prosecutor argument.

      • SD usually spells it out. The is has to be the only time his headline left me scratching my hair. Oh wait…I don’t have any hair!

      • Despicable Me says:

        Couldn’t the disclosure to the journalist be both because of an affair (why Wolfe told her he was making the disclosure….he was using her) and also countenanced/directed by the SSCI (why Wolfe was really making the disclosure)?

  54. DREAM SCENARIO:
    Senator Richard Burr is the first member of Congress INDICTED…
    • Could Demo☭rats claim Prosecutorial Bias from President Trump’s AG?
    • Would Demo☭rats rush to his defense … and invite personal scrutiny?
    • Would Demo☭rats celebrate the loss of a Republican Senate Seat?
    • Would Republicans realize that D-rats will next be giving THEM the Trump Treatment?
    • Would Burr flip when no one wants to back him? ?

    • … Burr’s most prominent trait is gutlessness. ?

    • Jim in TN says:

      Mittens and the Turtle would rush to try Trump if Burr or any Senator is indicted, demanding that Pelosi Impeach as soon as possible.

    • Betty says:

      – Or –
      Nancy Pelosi, Adam Schiff and the Law Fare Group are cobbling together some highly inflammable trumped up charges with flimsy evidence. She will present it to the members of the House and they will clutch their pearls and vote to impeach within hours. Then the Senate will privately breath a big sign of relief and join the stampede to vote before we Americans can blink an eye.
      And just like that, Barr, Horrowitz and Durhams and any investigations are Poof Gone.
      Then Keven McCarthy will get himself on the tv and say: Gosh, if only they would have waited 48 hours they would have seen the truth and we would never have gotten here. Even though he voted right along with the enemy, it is what he does.

However, I’m going with what I read somewhere (can’t remember where) that if President Trump does not win this thing, and see some high-level miscreants imprisoned for treason and sedition then after he is out of office, they will destroy him and his family. I do not believe for one minute he will let THAT happen!

    Impeachment grinds to standstill
    Nice headline Sundance, the tease on Ali Watkins, ha ha ha.
    Now that it’s crystal clear to the rational that Impeachment and removal was the objective from Nov. 8, 2016 forward, I am going to briefly say the following, under heading that impeachment grinds to a halt:
    1] The high-water mark for impeaching Pres. Trump was during the 22 month, $30+Million Mueller movie, that starred a cast of sedition.
    2] The build-up to the film’s May 2017 release — spoiler alert, Destroying Michael Flynn and Jeff Session – was, as the Sundance essay painstakingly express, pumping air into the Steele Dossier, which the Mueller Movie was designed to prove it as true. [Yes, they were that foolish, corrupt and incompetent]
    3] When the show left town earlier this year, Impeachment died with it. [this, slowly sinking in]
    4] Rep. Cummings, who was supposed to be part of the sequel, also died. [not part of script]
    5] Reps. Schiff and Nadler, the two walking dead men, like the Steele Dossier, all corpses. [RIP]
    6] All The Resistance has left is hot air – but no target, no aim, no direction, nonsense. [and no future]
    7] Trump has check mated all of this Un-American activity against We the People. [that’s why we voted for him]
    Schiff, and Nadler, and Pelosi, and Romney, and Burr and Warner, and Schumer, etc., having been whacked so hard, will only recognize it’s over once they regain consciousness, which is an open question.
    In the meantime, the fat lady has sung, and NYTimes and the rest of the media apostles can sing all they want. In the end, it is up to whether or not Barr wants to show the criminals any mercy or not.
    Speaking of ladies: Hillary Clinton, how does it feel to be knocked down, knocked out, stomped on, and then pissed on by the Hawaiian Congressman – for all the world to see?
    Hillary, the “Queen of warmongers, embodiment of corruption and personification of rot.”

    I don’t it will work out that way.
    Keeping everything in house with DoJ-FBI would strengthen to cover for misbehaving employees… maybe some more Hatch Act training is in order. Not only are you not to use your federal position/title to engage in political activity, now you are not to use government power and resources either (Wray system)
    BUT, indicting a senator has to be the dream bust of any US Attorney. Get a couple of them and then the poor little DoJ-FBI employees who were in on it can be written off as collateral damage corrupted by corrupt politicians.
    The small group should be rolling over on the SSCI instead of trying to hide behind them.

  64. Tl Howard says:

    To participate in this at this level, Warner and Burr had something at stake: WHAT?????????

  65. ChampagneReady says:

    There was so much going on you would need a nano computer to keep track of it. Two more examples:
    1. Two FBI agents were sent to Oleg Deripaska’s hotel room to put the squeeze on him to turn on Manfort which they hoped he would do to provide an avenue to use against Trump. Even though he hated Manafort, he told them to get lost. They told him when they left “KEEP AN OPEN MIND.” I’ll never forget that.
    2. A Russian “sounding” guy with a Trump hat (later learned to be Hank Greenberg–an FBI spy) has a meeting with Roger Stone at a restaurant in Florida where he claims he was referred by Michael Caputo and then tries to induce Stone to bite on supposedly damaging information about Clinton for TWO MILLION dollars.
    Stone tells him, I have no interest in that and don’t participate in those tactics–and even if I did, I don’t have that kind of money anyway. Greenberg tells him, IT’S NOT YOUR MONEY I WANT, IT’S TRUMPS ! Another attempted setup by this dispatched FBI dirtbag.
    This was like a “centipede” of sting operations and every leg had it’s own spiderweb that emanated off of that. There is so much to connect together that it truly boggles the mind.
    It had been reported that Durham had been conducting a grand jury and I kept asking if anybody knew for SURE. Now I’m convinced he hasn’t been. John Durham is the equivalent nightmare Elliott Ness was to the mob. He has continually and still been gathering a fruitopia of evidence.
    When he DOES convene that grand jury and presents what he has, I’m convinced true-bill indictments are going to be handed down so quick, it’s going to be the next best thing to the OJ verdict when Simpson was sentenced in Las Vegas.

    • ILOT says:

      I’m always amazed at the depth of this including your recall on Deripaska which I saw unfold in real time. It was subtle, but shocking. I think there are many points the informed of us could point to as the “opening of the lefts Pandoras Box” and their eventual demise. I believe the slow burn really started with the Papa D arrest with agents patiently waiting at the airport to arrest him – expecting to see the $10,000 he left in his lawyers safe. I still want to have those bills traced and have ZERO doubt that they will be….leading right back to….
      I agree with your centipede analogy. This is truly incredible and feel bullish on the Durham request to open the scope and timeline..

    There was a shady picture circulated a ways back… of a parking garage, & in the distance was Feinstein & the same “reporter” huddled together. Watkins had her phone out like she was recording whatever DF was telling her. IIRC it was around the same time.

I sincerely regret putting The Times in a difficult position and am very grateful for the support I’ve received from my editors and colleagues here.

    • sundance says:

      You see, that’s just it. The cover story protects the SSCI, DOJ, FBI and the New York Times.
      Remember, the NYT was falsely reporting about the Carter Page FISA application *after* March 17th 2017, and throughout the entirety of the next year.
      Ali Watkins had the FISA. Ali Watkins had the FISA.
      The Washington Post had the FISA.
      Buzzfeed had the FISA.
      The New York Times had the FISA.
      Yet their reporting about the content of the FISA was 180 degrees different than the actual information within the FISA…. because no-one knew they had the FISA…. so they could lie about the content of the FISA.
      ….all the way until August 2018.

      • CopperTop says:

        NYT: June 2018 Grynbaum and others
        “In the fall, Ms. Watkins started dating a different staff member from the committee. She told others that she had informed a Politico editor who did not object. But Mr. Dayspring, the Politico spokesman, said: “Politico editors were not made aware of this relationship.”
        About the same time, Mr. Wolfe, too, appeared to be moving on. He gave another young female reporter covering the Intelligence Committee some valuable information, according to a person with direct knowledge of the interaction. Then he sent her a series of personal nighttime texts, including one at 10 p.m. asking her what she was up to. She deflected his inquiries and never got another tip from him, the person said.”

        • CopperTop says:

          new young thing “never got another tip from him” after deflecting late night overtures.
          Leads me to believe it allows Wolfe to be regarded as tipster rather than source
          Fine hairs.
          (The title of this CTH article ‘never slept’ still might not be accurate. I think everything in NYT logic allows for the the deed to have done in their association between when she was 22 -26 years of age and for her to only have been given the name of someone interested in scooping her by Wolfe. How to reconcile the date on the FISA then has to be looked at. If it’s not HIS copy then who else had eyes on it and ability to transfer it to newsrooms.)

            to spread around to ignite the Trump/ Russia narrative. I would venture
            a guess that Ali’s circumstances have improved measurably due to Dan
            Jones. Good chance that some of her co workers have enjoyed similar
            unforseen “advancements” (better, safer rentals, bills suddenly paid off,
            student loans that went by by). The lower level, or online types are where
            Dan Jones would be getting the most bang for his bucks. The CNN big
            boy types have already hit casino.

    Barr has the authority to declassify all documents as we know. Then it should be possible for Barr to extract all documents relating to the SSCI from the military controlled NSA Database? Then we take something, we learned from the coup plotters and use it on them. We start searching their records for a crime. Charge them and shutdown the SSCI, right?

  86. Eric says:

    Barr might have a vested interest in defending DOJ and the FBI, which are corrupt. But he has no vested interest in defending the SSCI. There’s nothing they can really do to influence him about solely their exposure in this. Rosenstein did what he did because he was corrupt, and was in on the plot anyway. Same as Jessie Liu.

    “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”.”
    Sidney Powell confirmed Joe Pientka’s involvement in a round about way. She said the FBI who interviewed Flynn was the same agent that was a back channel to Ohr, Weissmann & small group but she couldn’t say his name because it is blacked out in public documents. She said everybody knows who it is

    “Ali Watkins Never Slept With James Wolfe – It Was a Cover Story….”

    Well, at least she had some standards.

    Yes, I believe Sundance said that members of the House and DOJ were involved. If so, then they would do all they can to derail his efforts.

  92. thedoc00 says:

    Would like to add that McConnell knew full well about everything described by SD concerning the SSCI and yet he did nothing to adjust the Republican membership and leadership of the SSCI. To date he has done nothing to real them in and have Lindsey Graham do anything to counter various House actions.
    It is like the reset button for most of congress has to be hit before cleaning up the executive branch of government per the Constitution, using the newly rest legislature. This would allow for the most Constitutionally based reset of the government.

  93. mtk says:

    A nice recap, except it does little to open the flood gate…
    By asking the simplest of observation, “How come the money trail of Dan Jones, is not in the investigative spot light?”
    It is the one thing, the Government can assert and compel discovery.
    The Treasury has precise and lawful powers over the moment of monies. It is the entire basis apon which the sanctions regime is built, also not withstanding international criminal investigations.
    So where is, or where does it stand, the US Treasury efforts to investigate, “How the 50 million put into the hands of Dan Jones is being distributed/spent?”
    How, on this green Earth, can a $50 million war chest be assembled over night and NOT play into the investigation of the Predicate?

    • Zy says:

      I have always wondered about this myself. IIRC a lot came from CA donors. Facebook and Google?

    • islandpalmtrees says:

      SSCI has over site on the CIA. The CIA has deep pockets of money they don’t have to account for. Dan Jones is helping the CIA.

      • mtk says:

        Not my thinking at all, has everything to with PACs and the McCain-Feingold Act that hide/enables foreign monies to pour into the election committees of politicians.
        It is the open secret of lobbying interests in the beltway.
        We here at the CTH are well versed on the uniParty self interests of seeing multinationals sellout the ‘main street’ to ‘wall street’ CoC interests. So why should it be so shocking to discover that the monies flowing into PAC orginate from the profits of this enabled lobbying sell out.
        McCain-Feingold Act is nothing more the legalization of corrupt transfer of money to power interests.

  96. All Too Much says:

    I wonder if the small group, via NYT/NBC, realize they are confirming what Sundance has been, and is, exposing about the plotters. They’ve taken things Sundance has been writing re: SSCI and are using to leverage themselves a defense. Something about this makes me smile.

  97. CopperTop says:

    Re-reading the NYT reporting (google you’ll find it) on why they were not defending Ali against the subpoena for records of a journalist two things stick out
    1) She said the affair was over four months prior to the Wolfe SSCI Male-1 related story
    2) She was dating a lower ranking staffer at the time
    3) Plenty of people vouch for a past relationship with Wolfe but no one vouches for a current one.

    • sundance says:

      It was a cover story.
      The cover story protected everyone…. INCLUDING THE MEDIA.

      • The Boss says:

        I can now see how the media needs protection in this case. They KNEW they were handling first amendment kryptonite.

      • CopperTop says:

        I think I’m just caught up on ‘never slept with’ from the headline. I think the cover story existed AND they slept with each other at one point…
        Her quotes to show she clearly was not claiming him as a Source (tackled that with the notion he was tipping…slight hair that can be misused) but wasn’t denying the relationship either.
        Media according to NYT had a BIG problem. She acknowledged the relationship as being not a conflict of interest. DOJ makes it one.
        Either they came by the FISA honest or they came by it from SSCI operation to leak.
        CTH assumption has been that the newsroom copy is the Wolfe copy. But since the Media hasn’t reported on this date trap (naturally) it could only be Durham level that would uncover the truth since DOJ opted to down plea Wolfe.

      • CopperTop says:

        Last catterwall:
        Ali did not stop at NYT Gen Counsel and Did Not Pass Go and got her OWN attorney. That’s what screwed the media.
        Matters. According to the parts of NY Times articles I’ve snagged from Grynbaum 2018 she had SEVERAL conversations since 2013 about Wolfe with various mentors, editors, friends, colleagues.
        The MEDIA general council had to realize what they were now up against.
        Her attorney would use those conversations against them if they pushed too hard on her.
        The attorney couldn’t protect her from the implication of an affair and she couldn’t say more than she said already without being called on lying over conflict. Lucky SSCI b*strd*

  98. J Gottfred says:

    Feinstein is the most corrupt, dishonest and scheming senator ever, and stupid California democrats continued to re-elect her.
    I have posted this before but am compelled to do so again after SD’s revelation of her reasons for leaving the SSCI.. I naively wrote her in 2013 after Snowden exposed the NSA’s surveillance abilities and my concern that these tools will be turned on private american citizens. only to receive from her the below letter. I also asked her by Clapper was still in in his position after lying under oath to the Senate on March 12, Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) asked Clapper, “Does the NSA collect any type of data at all on millions or hundreds of millions of Americans?” Clapper replied, “No sir … not wittingly.”
    Feinstein did not address my question about Clapper, but this is what she wrote me back. I knew we were all screwed when I read it.
    on March 12, Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) asked Clapper, “Does the NSA collect any type of data at all on millions or hundreds of millions of Americans?” Clapper replied, “No sir … not wittingly.”
    Senator Feinstein is a retrobate!
    She responded to me in 2013.
    Dear Mr. GottfredXXX:
    Thank you for contacting me to follow up on concerns you had regarding National Security Agency (NSA) programs. I appreciate hearing from you again, and welcome the opportunity to share some further information with you.
    I understand that you continue to have concerns about the NSA call records program. In 1979, the Supreme Court ruled in Smith v. Maryland that there is no expectation of privacy in this kind of transactional information, since that information is already compiled by phone companies, and sitting federal judges serving on the FISA Court have held this program to be constitutional numerous times over the past seven years. Names are not attached to the phone numbers connected to this metadata, and analysts may only use the call records to search for numbers connected to those for which there is “reasonable, articulated suspicion” that they relate to terrorism. Searches of the NSA data are reviewed by the Department of Justice, and every 90 days, the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court reviews this program and decides whether to reauthorize it.
    As noted in my earlier letter, the NSA collects information about the internet activity of foreign targets on foreign soil through a separate program authorized by Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. The NSA is prohibited from directing surveillance at U.S. citizens’ electronic communications in this program. Oversight of this program occurs in several forms, including twice yearly reports to Congress, as well as a review by the NSA Inspector General, the Department of Justice, and the FISA Court.
    You may be interested to know that the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, which I chair, will be proposing reforms to the phone records program that would enhance transparency and privacy protections. For your convenience, I have attached a copy of an opinion piece I authored in the Washington Post on July 30, 2013, which further explains these proposed changes.
    Again, please know that although we may not agree on this subject, your correspondence is important to me and I value your contribution to the ongoing debate about U.S. national security programs. If you have any additional comments or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact my Washington, D.C. office at (202) 224-3841.
    Sincerely yours,
    Dianne Feinstein
    United States Senator

    Little Bob Corker the seditious rat sure bailed out in a hurry.
    The Corrupt SSCI was leading the Coup on the information side of the treasonous affair.
    They were the ones laundering the intelligence by passing it along thru Wolfe, so the corrupt media all had the same info. The media personnel do not need to be left out of the prosecutions.
    Sundance you have put the jigsaw together.
    My hat is off to you. Damn good work.

    • swimeasy says:

      Well said Johnny. Sundance is also telling us that the coupsters in the FBI and DOJ are also running the same playbook as Wolf ran- threatening the SSCI senators with outing them as Wolf did and they are said to be ‘lawyering up’. So we need to keep an eye out for news reports of senators on the SSCI defending them as they did in the Wolf case.

      • platoriusnepos says:

        Trump has firmly put his weight behind Thom Tillis against Garland Tucker. Tucker has accused Tillis of things he has done; sound familiar? As to Burr, he has been a decided disappointment, mostly from what we learned thru CTH analysis.

    ”Justice Department officials have said that Durham has found something significant, and that critics should be careful.”…
    I guess the operative word here is ‘CRITICS’.
    Is that the critics that believe the FBI/DOJ have been central and actively involved in the ‘witch hunt’ or is that the critics that see and argue it is all just one conspiracy to give the President a free pass.
    The quoted statement is just as lambastic as my observation.
    So tried of the cheer leading BS.
    The main revelational crux is the American People are being lied to on a daily basis, and have been for many years.
    Constitutionally…
    How is a Democratic Republic to function, yet alone derive consent to be governed by Representation. If the dialogue of the Representation to the People is founded on lying as a matter of SOP?
    That is just one observational.
    Another is the vetted liers, are gaming the system to leave the People holding the bag, for their failure is “Constitutionally Our Failure.”
    Funny is not that the, “The predication of the Marxists of the 1950’s and the refrain of every derivative marxist’s progressive movement, “Hilter, Hitler, you’re Nazi fascist supporter”
    Three years of 2016 crap’ola and the one consistent factor is demographic divisions, “To play the People against one another.”
    “Is that by design!” It is not a question, it is an emphatic.

They are simply baiting PDJT to make an actual misstep and with his close and trusted attorneys (Sekulow et al) I doubt he will make that misstep. I firmly believe even the July 25 call to Zelensky was a way to out those who he knew were “listening in”. With Schiff dispatching an aide to Ukraine on July 22nd it is anecdotal confirmation the dark side thought they had something to work with. ANYONE that has read the 1998 Treaty between the US and Ukraine (to collectively fight crime) would know that PDJT was obligated to step up to the crime that has been historically present in Ukraine; it would be a breech of his Oath of Office for him not to pursue it quite frankly. I think folks need to get their heads on straight on this and dispense with the msm nonsense. Bidens allegedly chose to enrich themselves in Ukraine with the existence of such a Treaty, that’s the only story here. Even calls to your rep letting them know that WE know details such as this will force them do perform some level of introspection prior to casting a vote for impeachment on our behalf.

            In both instances of impeachment (Nixon and Clinton) independent voters swung to the incumbent in significant numbers. At this point I think that progressives know the election for 2020 is over. There has to be a more diabolical reason they would knowingly throw votes to PDJT by pursuing the impeachment thing. That math, polls and the clear language in the Constitution all point to them dropping the subject. The fact they don’t causes great concern particularly in light of how the proceedings are being conducted.

    Just a few things that keep running through my head as we learn the depth of the evil in our government. Perhaps they will prove to be irrelevant, but maybe another reader can add to my list.
    1) Michael Hastings, a Rolling Stone reporter, is killed in a high speed fiery car crash in Los Angeles in 2013. Witnesses say they heard explosions BEFORE he crashed. He was the writer that led to Gen. Stanley McChrystal being relieved of his duty. Prior to his crash, he was said to be investigating the government abuses of citizens privacy and was to soon be interviewing Brennan. Conspiracy theory speculation is that his car was being controlled remotely.
    2) Katie Arrington defeated Mark Sanford (a vocal anti-Trumper) in the Republican primary for the House on June 12, 2018. On June 22, 2018 she was hit head-on by a vehicle driving in the wrong lane on the highway and severely injured. The other driver was killed. Another remotely controlled vehicle?
    3) Shariar Zolfaghari was an Lyft driver that was murdered June 1, 2016. His credit cards and ID were not stolen. His wife is Camila Wright Zolfaghari. Camila Wright Zolfaghari is Georgia’s statewide prosecutor for human trafficking. An article I read some time ago claimed she was investigating Epstein and Bill Clinton. I couldn’t find that article now, so perhaps my memory is wrong.
    4) Seth Rich
    Maybe my tinfoil hat is on backwards, but the more we learn the extent that the dirty tricks club will go to cover things up, the more suspicious I get. I hope Durham is able to investigate anything and everything, but we need some of the easy convictions to get charged. I fear this is so deep that it will take a decade to unravel, which will allow too many of these crooks off the hook.

      If Seth Rich stole the DNC emails, what Adam Carter discussed about new material that suggests Crowdstrike might not be able to detect when emails are stolen could lead to the discrediting of their report UNOFFICIALLY. Getting that information up to the INSTITUTIONS would be next.
      After that, the Establishment has a fall-back position. Right now, the Crowdstrike report is BEST EVIDENCE that the Russians hacked the DNC. If that report falls, they have a US SERVER THE “RUSSIANS” ALLEGEDLY LEASED. The story goes that the GRU Russian agents hacking the DNC leased a US server that collected the data from a keylogger the Russians planted in the DNC network. A keylogger program records all keystrokes made by a user of the infected machine. We are supposed to believe the Russians were too stupid to disable their keylogger when they were working on the same machine after US business hours, so all their hacking was keylogged. The FBI seized the leased server and it is now evidence.
      If Crowdstrike’s report is exposed as false because Crowdstrike’s FALCON OVERWATCH network surveillance program failed to detect the email theft, the Establishment has the one server the FBI DID seize to fall back on as BEST EVIDENCE the Russians hacked the DNC.
      It is a steep uphill climb. We need an insider to flip regardless of what the real story is, Seth Rich or something else. Barring getting access to that seized leased US server, an insider flipping is the only way.
      This cover-up is based on the JFK assassination cover-up’s forensic “evidence.”. The plotters have multiple choices for BEST EVIDENCE, and as some are refuted, they keep backing up into another piece of evidence. At first, the entire AUTOPSY PROTOCOL, notes, recordings, x-rays, and photographs were the BEST EVIDENCE Oswald acted alone. When the FBI FD-302 of the autopsy indicated PRE-AUTOPSY SURGERY OF THE SKULL, according to real-time comments made by the surgeons, the written autopsy report was excluded as BEST EVIDENCE, falling back to the x-rays and photographs. When researchers found that the wound pattern on the x-rays, showing extensive damage to JFK’s right forehead and eye socket, while the photographs showed the skull’s frontal bone and right eye socket was intact, the photos were dropped with the x-rays now the final choice as forensic BEST EVIDENCE.
      This could take a long time if we don’t find another pathway to the objective of exposing a false Russian hack. Attempting to refute, one at a time, layers of Best Evidence could take many years. Flexibility is required. Doing the same things over and over will not get this done.

        I have believed all along Seth Rich stole the DNA emails. 1. No one in government has shown the slightest intereest in investigating his murder. I read something about Fox or someone wanting to look into it, but a lawsuit by his family was raised which all seemed very weird.
        2. Download rate of emails was faster then downloading via the internet.

        • farrier105 says:

          If Ed Butowsky’s legal filing for defamation is accurate, Paragraph 57 added to the recording Butowsky made of Seymour Hersh tells an interesting story. Butowsky’s legal filing claims Hersh told Butowsky that ANDREW MCCABE was Hersh’s source for the story that Seth Rich stole the emails and sold them to Wikileaks. Hersh also told Butowsky in the recording the the emails were NOT the motive for the murder. This tells us three things if Butowsky’s filing is the truth:
          1. Andrew McCabe knows a lot about that homicide investigation. He must have had an inside look at it.
          2. McCabe knows the motive for the murder was NOT the motive. This means McCabe has to know what the actual motive WAS. How else could he know what was NOT the motive?
          3. McCabe knows a suspect, or suspects, for the murder if he knows the motive for the murder.

          • farrier105 says:

            Correction: McCabe knows the motive for Seth Rich’s murder was NOT THE EMAILS. Sorry for the typo and not catching it before.

            Everything goes full circle back to the JFK assassination. Everything. Watergate, Iran-Contra, the attempt on Reagan’s life, and now this. The perps like to sign their work, too. That was one reason for picking Mueller. Mueller was related to Richard Bissell, who was head of CIA clandestine services fired by JFK for the Bay of Pigs failure.
            They always sign their work.

        222 Swift
        “The velocity that ranges from 2000 km/h (1200 mph or 550 m/s)up to about 4500 km/h (2800 mph or 1250 m/s. The Swift is a large cased .224 caliber cartridge and bullet that was created for small game such as prairie dogs, groundhogs and other vermin (or “varmints” in the US) such as marmots. When introduced it was 1,400 ft/s (430 m/s) faster than its nearest varmint-hunting competitor, which was the .22 Hornet (also .224 caliber).[4] It was found to be an extremely accurate cartridge as well.[5] The .220 Swift remains the fastest commercial cartridge in the world, with a published velocity of 4,665 ft/s (1,422 m/s) using a 29 grain bullet and 42 grains of 3031 powder.[6] ”
        credit Wikipedia
        At velocities exceeding 4200 feet per second the bullet fragments into essentially powder and delivers up to 1800 lb/ft of energy.

  115. tav144 says:

    Sounds like Durham circled back to the Wolfe plea deal….and since he was never charged with espionage the first go-round, Durham let Wolfe know that he could still be charged with espionage now unless he talks.
    Leverage.
    That’s how Durham knows that Wolfe’s paramour was just a cover story.
    Durham knows SSCI involvement, hence the warning to all, “be careful”.
    The small group is trying to use the same leverage they used the first time. Let’s hope Durham and Barr are not so easily intimidated.

    • farrier105 says:

      This “small group” has to be communicating, and they have to be doing it electronically. They need rapid, real-time response to threats.

      • Elle says:

        ”Justice Department officials have said that Durham has found something significant, and that critics should be careful.”
        they just did communicate. But you are right. So many ways they could do it. My guess is one way is by using scifs. What’s going to get them in trouble was their past hubris that no one would figure out they were using ham radios or the ol’ chatty lover trick. Which just made me wonder about the General Petraeus’ scandal.

  116. Laurie Walker says:

    Things have really changed in the last three years. In Congressional hearings in 2017 & 2018, the M.O. became obvious. Those in and around (“contractors”) D.C. would give fake info to the fake news, create a fake outcry which would lead to a hearing (the Repubicans fell for it every time) where the dems would read the fake story as if it were fact, harrass the person in front of congress and enter the “factual” news story into the record. Then the fake news would print/air stories about the hearing to back up their fake scenario.
    Everything changed when Pilosi took over … I guess they didn’t need the media to harass the opposition anymore, but what’s interesting is even that power didn’t work out for them and they had to resort to going (literally) underground. Of course, still feeding the media, but with very little fanfare.

    • MAGA says:

      Interesting thing…at least for me…Pelosi did everything possible to destroy, or at least make Bush43’s second Term irrelevant…and he never said a word…then he was silent for Obama’s 8 years of evil…Yet…when Bush finally opens his mouth it is to trash Trump and then vote for Hillary…just like Mitt Romney now talks to Harry Reid…who lied about Mitt’s taxes and hurt his campaign.
      Obviously Bush & Mitt are RINOS…but they are also as soulless as the RATS who destroyed them, the establishment RNC and were in the process of destroying America…but a powerful Patriot and Divine Intervention gave us our WONDERFUL President Trump…who rightly trashes ALL of them 24/7…that’s why they hate him…BECAUSE HE FIGHTS BACK…against RAT & RINOS!!!

    The author makes excellent analysis time after time. I am passionate about politics but have a hard time keeping up with the timelines, lies and inter connections to this tragic saga.
    Seems to me that the Ukraine is quite central though. But will we ever learn the truth. Does our DOJ/FBI have the guts to expose and prosecute corruption against both parties and long serving members? I doubt it.
    Our political system has become a un-party, where Government money is laundered to these countries and kickbacks filter back to our ruling class and their families. This is selling out our country and obviously the ruling class doesn’t want to be exposed. But the American people are indifferent and keep voting back their representatives so thing won’t change.
    One thing is for sure, DC has become America’s Chernobyl. The whole city is radio active and should be cemented over and left as a toxic site for the next 100 years.

  126. I’m sure James Wolfe is up to his eyeballs in SSCI corruption, but I feel sorry for him anyway.
    Powerful Senators directed him to leak intelligence in the course of his duties & when their seditious plots failed, they not only destroyed Mr. Wolfe, they humiliated his wife & Buzzfeed reporter Ali Watkins.
    What a pit of vipers the SSCI is! That goes for the Intelligence services, federal law enforcement, the justice system & foreign policy agencies, too. What has happened to our government? No honor or integrity. No allegiance to our country or United States citizens. It’s shameful & unacceptable.

  127. Zippy says:

    “The expanded investigative timeline is now into May 2017 when Mueller was appointed special counsel, and would mean all of the preceding (and surrounding) activity leading up to Mueller would be reviewed. ”
    That should have been THE STARTING POINT of the investigation! Kneecap everything at its very origin proving everything afterwards to be unjustified and invalid.

    • Redzone says:

      Zippy- An investigation should not have time constraints. The events happened when the events happened.

      • Zippy says:

        You totally missed my point.
        Indicating that the investigative timeline has been “expanded” implies that the BOGUS origin story of EVERYTHING related to the Russian collusion FARCE had not been previously within the scope of the investigation.
        My POINT is that the expanded scope of the investigation is where ANY investigation should have -BEGUN- LONG AGO to obliterate the very foundation of EVERYTHING that followed by proving the origin story was a setup by Western intel. Two words – Joseph Mifsud!
        That fact that this completely COMMON SENSE route was NOT taken indicates to me that the entire investigative effort is an intentionally slow-walked FARCE.

        • Zippy says:

          More implication that I’m correct is that Mifsud went into hiding, is still hiding, and made a TAPED deposition where, as his lawyer has said, he says he was working for Western intel. WHY is he hiding? Fear that he will meet with an “accident” since he, as I pointed out above, could bring the entire coup attempt tumbling down in a manner that, unlike most everything else related to the coup attempt, would be VERY simple for even your average idiot to understand?

  128. millard fillmore says:

    There are enough rumors about Mark Warner’s past floating around Virginia that,if even a little bit is true, Durham and anybody else would have plenty to put pressure on him with.Blackmail is a very popular way to get classified information from someone in government,especially on the intelligence committee.Warner should not be getting classified information,and really should be out of government entirely.

  130. Good Grief. I’ve been off-the-grid for 3 1/2 days and just read this posting and all the comments. I wonder if this is why the House is in such a big rush to impeach PDJT – – – to stop the Durham investigation?

    • hokkoda says:

      I think this has been the assumption for several weeks. Heck, I posted several months ago that the reason Pelosi was saying “no impeachment” after Mueller was that she and Trump had worked out a deal: she Ramos down impeachment, Trump agrees not to do anything serious to investigate the investigators.
      Then Trump mentions Biden on the Ukraine call, along with emails and crowd strike, and that was the end of the cease-fire.
      It’s a forgone conclusion that the race is on…will the House be able to fabricate enough anti-Trump charges time get the impeachment votes they need before the IG Report and Durham start rolling up the attempted coup?
      Behind the scenes, Pelosi/Schiff are trying to get votes for impeachment while the media works on softening up GOP Senators to vote to remove Trump.
      If Durham somehow connects the dots back to the SSCI, and finds criminal conduct, it’s Katie bar the door because it cannot be guaranteed that the GOP would retain Trump and throw a bipartisan group of Senators to the wolves…

Anger is ok it you state a reason and cause. Cold anger isn’t irrational.

  137. Is there a branch or agency of the federal gummint that *DIDN’T* participate in the Coup Attempt? The Bureau of Weights and Measures? The Weather Service? Bueller? Anyone?

    • hokkoda says:

      Seems to me, three basic agencies (FBI, DOJ, CIA) and about a dozen or so conspirators all of whom are pretty close to the top of the food chain. DOJ (Rosenstein, B. Ohr), FBI (Comey, McCabe, Strzok), and CIA/DNI (Brennan/Clapper) with some private actors at FusionGPS (Simpson, N. Ohr, Chris Steele). Most aren’t more than a step or two from the chief’s office, but were in a position to trigger events without any oversight or brakes.
      Because of the way our systems work, you just need to push a few of the right buttons, and big swaths of the government jump into action without even thinking about it.
      In fact, I would be willing to bet that nobody gets prosecuted basically on the justification that none of them are in government any more. It was a small group. They were all fired or left office when Trump was inaugurated. None of them are there any more. So, they’ll fix some policies and procedures and sweep everything under the rug.
