Senator Grassley Tweets Warning About FISA Investigation – Holds Unique Perspective on Deep State Motives for a Cover-Up…

U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley sent a forboding tweet a few days ago outlining the possibility of the FISA investigation would result in a “deep six” cover-up.

Grassley has a unique perspective on a very specific element to the construct of the FISA application, and the political use therein, that most have forgotten.  Back in 2018 when Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Grassley was hot on the trail of a very specific individual that has had almost no attention since. The election clock ran out on Grassley; the mid-terms took place; and Grassley was never able to get to his target.

The background to this tweet needs a little context {GO DEEP} and surrounds two individuals who have NOT been identified as being questioned by either IG Michael Horowitz or U.S. Attorney John Durham.

Those two individuals are: Daniel Jones, former lead staffer for former SSCI Vice-Chair Dianne Feinstein; and a lawyer for Christopher Steele named Adam Waldman.

In late 2018, at the same time when the DOJ was initiating a cover-up to protect SSCI leaker James Wolfe, Adam Waldman was a specific person of interest for Chairman Grassley as his action related to the construction of the Steele Dossier and the eventual use of the dossier in gaining a FISA Title-1 surveillance warrant.

Without trying to repeat too much prior research, the gist of the FISA issue surrounded activity that was taking place in March through May 2017.

In the spring of 2017 the FBI was using DOJ official Bruce Ohr as a conduit to Christopher Steele.  At the same time Senator Mark Warner -having replaced Feinstein on the SSCI- was using Adam Waldman as a conduit to Christopher Steele.  The purposes of both sets of engagement were identical, all of the people constructing the operations against President Trump needed to be sure that Steele was going to stay solid with the team message.

By March 2017 the goal was to initiate and continue the investigation of President Trump under the fraudulent pretense of collusion with Russia.  The FBI and DOJ ‘small group’ were still carrying out their 2016 operation and preparing to hand it off to a special counsel.   The investigation itself needed the appearance of validity and Chris Steele’s dossier was a central component of the “Russia Collusion-Conspiracy” narrative.

The DOJ, FBI, CIA and ODNI knew the provenance of the dossier was sketchy at best.  After the election direct contact with Chris Steele, while the possibility of the evidence being exposed as political opposition research, was impossible.  This is why Bruce Ohr and Adam Waldman were used as intermediaries by the FBI and Mark Warner respectively.

♦ Chris Steele remaining authentic to the claims in the dossier was a paramount concern.  If Steele backed-away or admitted publicly the dossier information was nothing more than an assembly of Fusion-GPS inspired opposition research, the framework for the Russian conspiracy would collapse.

SSCI Vice-Chairman Mark Warner was the allied member of the group in congress.  The House was under republican control (Chairman Nunes) and the Senate Intelligence Committee (Vice-Chair Warner) was more purposeful for the primary role of supporting the Russian conspiracy story as outlined within the dossier.

Fusion-GPS was pushing the narrative through sources and contacts within mainstream news.  The FBI, DOJ and Intelligence Community, writ large, were leaking to their allies in media to build upon the same narrative.

Simultaneously FBI Director James Comey was keeping notes of all interactions he was having with the target, President Trump. Multiple people and interests were all working on the same goal, diminish President Trump through the fraudulent auspices of the Russia-Collusion-Conspiracy investigation and narrative.

♦ By March 2017 the need to push more Russia-conspiracy fuel into the media bloodstream was critical.

On March 17th, 2017, Senator Mark Warner -under the auspices of the Senate Intelligence Committee investigation- requested the copy of the FISA application, used against U.S. person Carter Page, that contained the dossier as source material and evidence.  The ODNI, Dan Coats, gave the written document to SSCI Security Director James Wolfe to deliver and return; albeit with a hidden leak detector as the October 21st 2016 origination date was modified.

When the FISA application arrived at the Senate SCIF, Senator Mark Warner told SSCI Security Director James Wolfe to leak the content of that application (original and one renewal) to the media.   James Wolfe took pictures of the 82 pages and sent them via a secured AP to Buzzfeed reporter Ali Watkins.

This leak would provide more fuel for the narrative as it showed there was an official investigative basis for the use of the dossier.

After Warner and Wolfe leaked the FISA application, Warner then turned back to contacts with Adam Waldman the lawyer for Chris Steele.  It was now more important than ever that Chris Steele lay low, stick to the original script of his authorship and not provide any comments that would undermine the media’s use of the FISA application in a series of dozens of stories throughout late March and April 2017.

As highlighted by text messages from Adam Waldman to Senator Mark Warner, Chris Steele was subsequently “under a lot of duress“.

The intentional leaking of the FISA application now put Steele in a very stressful position; the FBI had used political opposition research to gain a FISA court warrant, the media was reporting on it, and Chris Steele’s intelligence reputation was part of the narrative.

Dianne Feinstein’s former staffer Daniel Jones was in communication with Glenn Simpson at Fusion-GPS and Adam Waldman representing Christopher Steele.  Multiple left-wing entities had given Dan Jones $50,000,000 to pay Simpson and Steele to continue the effort and retain the premise.  In essence, Dan Jones was the bag-man for the pay-offs.

Payments made to Glenn Simpson would be used to keep fueling the media story, bolster reporting of the FBI investigation and further build the Russia narrative.   All of this was predicated on Chris Steele maintaining the story that his dossier was an official intelligence product.  As a consequence Daniel Jones also paid Adam Waldman and Chris Steele for their ongoing support.

Throughout this period in 2017 Daniel Jones was the bag-man traveling between Glenn Simpson, Adam Waldman and his prior work contact on the SSCI, Senator Mark Warner.

This was the trail Senator Grassley was following in late 2018.  Senator Grassley knew Waldman and Jones were the keys to unraveling the sketchy construct of the dossier and how it was purposefully used in the FISA application.  Essentially the FISA application is built upon political opposition research passed-off as intelligence.  That’s the primary FISA issue.

What Senator Grassley is signaling now, is how the IG’s reach is limited.  While it has been reported that IG Horowitz has interviewed Chris Steele, the IG has likely never interviewed Adam Waldman (Steele’s lawyer) or Daniel Jones, the bag-man.

Additionally, Grassley is most certainly aware that Senator Mark Warner used SSCI Security Director James Wolfe to leak the FISA application to media; and Grassley watched as the DOJ covered that up to protect the SSCI.

After his arrest for leaking classified documents, SSCI Security Director James Wolfe threatened to subpoena Senators on the Senate Intelligence Committee (July 27, 2018) for his defense.  The DOJ (Rod Rosenstein authorizing) quickly cut a deal with Wolfe and dropped the charges down to a single charge of lying to investigators. {Go Deep}

Immediately following that transparent DOJ cover-up, in August 2018, while he was Judiciary Committee Chairman, Chuck Grassley requested testimony from Mr. Adam Waldman, surrounding his contacts and engagements with Christopher Steele, DOJ/FBI officials, and contacts with Mark Warner to undermine and remove President Donald Trump.

Grassley knew in 2018 the key to the corrupt use of the FISA construct was the Steele Dossier; and Grassley also knew the sketchy people behind the dossiers’ use were Adam Waldman and Daniel Jones.

From Adam Waldman and Dan Jones all of the connections with the dossier participants become visible.  Those middle-men connect to Glenn Simpson, Chris Steele, Bruce Ohr, Mark Warner and the FBI officials utilizing the dossier in their political investigation. It is highly likely those middle-men would also connect to the participants in the Weissmann and Mueller investigation.

In a response letter released August 17th, 2018, (full pdf) lawyers representing Mr. Waldman told Senator Chuck Grassley their client was “out of the country and not expected to return for several weeks.” SEE BELOW:

However, as we noted at the time, this was a lie.

Internet researcher/investigator almostjingo noticed that Mr. Waldman’s wife Barbara Sturm posted an instagram picture August 22nd, 2018, showing them dining with friends in New York.

(Link) Barbara Sturm second from left, husband Adam Waldman far right.

The letter from Mr. Waldman’s lawyers to Chuck Grassley was intentionally false and simply an effort to avoid giving testimony to congress.  Adam Waldman could not be “out of the country for several weeks” and simultaneously having dinner in New York.

      Remember that Steele has been interviewed by both Horowitz and Durham, although I cannot guess what significance, if any, that may imply, but I suppose that as well-connected, deeply entrenched, and of course, aided and abetted by the criminally complicit media estate as these traitors are, there is no way we can realistically expect all of the evil bastards to face justice. Some of them will escape justice, and perhaps even some of the most deserving of severe punishment.

      But, with the recent revelations of Barr & Durham travelling to Italy, the UK, and Australia, speaking to Prof. Mifsud’s attorney (if not Mifsud himself), and also recovering two Blackberry devices supposedly belonging to Mifsud, along with their accompanying data (a Mifsud insurance policy of his own?), I am buoyed with renewed confidence that AG Barr’s investigation will yield significant results.

      Mifsud has publicly stated that he is in hiding, as he is understandably in fear of his life. It cannot be much of a stretch to assume he would very much like to make a deal with AG William Barr.

      I’m not completely sold on Grassley. I used to feel more confident in his motives, but he has certainly disappeared from the battlefield, so to speak, until his recent comments about the delays on the IG Report.

      FBI Director Wray has been reportedly “not very cooperative at all” in the IG Report declassification process.

      Less than two weeks ago, Mitch McConnell stated that the house democrats were out of control, and that impeachment was dead on arrival at the senate. What has changed in the last two weeks, for McConnell to send President Trump a not-so-veiled-threat that if he doesn’t reverse course on Syria…..? Now, he is supposedly discussing impeachment procedures with the repulsive Chuck Schumer, and apparently with no regard whatsoever for the will of the republican voter.

      Is it possible we are seeing the final full court press by the deep state? If the IG Report exposes the FBI/DOJ corruption, and the SSCI’s involvement in particular, don’t be surprised to learn that McConnell is getting hammered from all sides by panicked, desperate senators, as well as his Chicom papa san-in-law, and Donohoe at the USCoC to (also) DO SOMETHING — OR ELSE!

    Grassley is showing his age and hence subsequent ignorance. Lets go over the basics yet again.

    PDJT said NEVER AGAIN concerning Spygate. That promise is only kept if there are perp walks and convictions.

    PDJT’s chosen instrument is AG Barr. We know that because of his publicly conferred declass power. NOT for us, for Durham grand juries.

    We know from Barr congressional testimony that he knows there was spying on PDJT, the only question being whether adequately justified. He is pursuing that question on two tracks:
    1. Horowitz FISA abuse, where he already has Nunes criminal referrals. When Horowitz agrees, is done. At least Comey and Yates down.
    2. Durham EC predicate. And now we know via Ms. Powell that Barr and Durham went to Italy, got the Mifsud deposition, and got both his cellphones using UK SIM cards. Mifsud was western intelligence, not Russian as Mueller report said. Leads to MI6 leads to improper EC predicate. Game over. t least Brennan and Clapper also down.

        I knew right then and there, this is the guy we need and he is going to rock Washington. And rock it, he is.

    Graham is the real traitor. He reminds me of Paul Ryan. We must get Trump re-elected and I think all heck will break lose during his second term. The swamp is much wider and deeper than even Pres. Trump thought but we all know he loves the challenge and keeps his promises. Re-elect him and the swamp will be drained. If he is not gone before the election I also think Wray will be fired within the first 3 days. That’s when the big ugly will really begin. Let the Dem’s cheat and elect one of their own and America will be lost forever.

  34. Because of the above, and because many/most Members if Congress (like members of the Media—same thing)are insecure, self-absorbed, unprincipled cowards they are easily influenced by perceived shame, opinion, self-preservation. This fact, and the fact that many of them are guilty of themselves participating or condoning criminal behaviors since 2015 make them vulnerable. Conservative media, and the few courageous conservatives in Congres#, need to go on a Offense and relentlessly shine the light of Truth on these members.(Republicans ALWAYS play defense, ceding the offense and responding to the Democrat premise, questions, accusations). Publicly put them on the defensive. Call them out. Start with the Go8–past (e.g. Paul Ryan, Diane Feinstein) and present. As Sundance was first to point out, start with the leadership of the corrupt SSCI, Burr and Warner. The fact that the conservative media is publicly and factually call out both Dems and Republicans will make it all the more effective. Accuse them of corruption and obstruction of justice. Accuse them of a prevent defense (or offense) solely to preempt what they know is coming from Durham.

    All the above applies to media figures. Let Barr and Durham and Horowitz attend to the usual suspects. Onservative media needs to focus on coconspirators in Congres# and the a Media. But it must be personal and unrelenting and it is long overdue.

    Great work Sundance. Dan Jones and Adam Waldman were red flags from the beginning- that they have NOT yet been investigated is a red flag in itself, and speaks volumes about Rod Rosenstein and Chris Wrays leadership, or lack of it.

    Lets hope Barr and Durham are on it.

    OK, two big changes here in the evolving narrative?

    1. First time, I believe, Sundance has asserted Mark Warner directed Wolfe to leak. I believe he has hinted before, but not a direct claim.

    2. Sundance appears to have accepted my detailed exposition and hypothesis of a few days ago that $50 Million doesn’t sound like research monies – it sounds, smells, and reeks of PAYOFF monies.

        Internationally it is globalism. The Uniparty in the U.S. congress is the mechanism used to advance it here, It’s also one of the many ways our congresspersons become multi-millionaires.

        One of the many things I would like to see come out of all this upheaval is the destruction of the party systems in the states that have kept the Uniparty system in place. Why we have a few people deciding who we are allowed to vote for is absurd.

        People do not understand how these private, non-governmental systems work and how corrupt they are. We have to start at the local level if things are ever going to change.

    Why not release all of the surrounding documents, without redaction? And, not say a word to the SSCI.

    Is Grassley impotent? Whining that nothing may happen? Well do something about it! I don’t understand how these “powerful” people seem so weak and ineffectual. I’m a nobody, but piss me off with blatant injustice I’m more than willing to “embarrass” myself by being blunt and to the point as to what I see is going on. Everything can be factored down to simple right or wrong without the weasel words used by those who aim to obfuscate their culpability. What I love about Trump is he is blunt and gets to the core problem. I’m sure it is why he is hated by the elites who like to blow smoke up the asses of rubes like me. Well I’ve learned from Trump how to break thru the high minded pile of crap they spew and get to the facts. I’ve used this technique since recognizing it in Trump and it has made my life more enjoyable and effective. I don’t care if those I may roast like me or not, that is the first thing you have to embrace.

      I agree with you completely about Grassley and the many others in congress who are so outraged about the way things are done but do nothing but whine about it. I think it may have something to do with the rule saying you should not disparage your colleagues.

      You know how they talk about their dear friends and colleagues. My favorite is referring to Maxine Waters as the Gentlelady from California.

      I highly doubt that he did this on the first day he possibly could have been on the job. More likely it was handled by Acting Director, Mike Dempsey.

      Although, given Coats’ recent reputation, I wouldn’t be surprised if it was waiting for him on his desk, with a big pink bow, for his first task as DNI.

      Barr and Durham have it all, and then some. I suspect this is why the recent messaging from the media coverage of The Phone Call and its related activities in the National Drama Class being run by Professor Pelosi have triggered something of a sinking feeling among the informed. The narrative plays on our doubts that any of this will be exposed in a court of law.

      Stand strong. Stand fearless. It’s always darkest before the dawn.

      And remember, the real panic started when the cabal figured out that Trump has been running a real investigation that parallels any official investigations that might end up ‘deep six’.

          Absolute confirmation of the charade occurred when at the debate, the very next day after Benghazi, Romney never referred to the incident and never challenged Obama on his explanation of what had happened less than 24 hours before. That was the moment it became unquestionably apparent the fix was in on the 2012 election. Romney’s record speaks for itself but the day after the debate Limbaugh came on the air and extolled what Romney had done; referring to it as “sheer genius”! Everyone is free to draw their own conclusions but personally, they are all, left or supposedly right, nothing more than highly paid performers with very little skin in the game.

          Stunning article. Most hair-raising and repulsive: makes all the sense in the world.

          Your 2nd paragraph is 100% accurate, imo, eagledriver50. Our brilliant Maverick President has been gathering information and proof of this deeply pervasive corruption his entire adult life. He has been strategizing and rehearsing this scenario years. He employs a hapless demeanor when needed, and I believe that is when he is most shrewd.

          This blatant evil perpetrated by so very many in power is heinous, but there is a Power infinitely stronger, to Whom we earnestly pray for justice and the protection of our President, his family and our country.

        Also interesting in support of the article we has Rudy saying that he had already gotten his info from Ukraine back earlier in the year, March I think so maybe PT did have his own investigation going on all along.

        I wonder if all the Republicans in Congress have seen this article along with Solomon, Sara Carter, Judge Jeannie, Rush, Bongino and even Don Jr.

        Are the allegations about this Tofer Black guy true? Is Burisma really the nexus of Deep State corruption? When you think about Romney’s guy, Kerry’s stepson, and Pelosi’s son (?) all associated with them—not to mention the Atlantic Council’s connection with Hillary Clinton—it does begin to make sense.

        The author is quite explicit about the Deep State threat to President Trump’s life. He’s out in public so much that I worry, too. /LEJ
