Devin Nunes Discusses Origin of Protodossiers and Media Assistance for DOJ/FBI “Spygate” Effort…

HPSCI ranking member Devin Nunes discusses the new Lee Smith book “The Plot Against The President” and how Fusion-GPS used distribution of protodossiers to the media prior to the assembly by Fusion contractor Christopher Steele.

One of the more remarkable aspects to the political weaponization of the intelligence apparatus was the complicity of specific journalists and specific outlets to advance the Russian collusion-conspiracy narrative.

          Look at the Grassly and Johnson letter to Barr/DOJ in April. They were speaking about some Strzok/Page texts that cited an CI Op named “Charlie” being placed into the White House to basically spy on Trump. Now look at the Article the other day by Paul Sperry, when he named the Whistle Blower he did something VERY ODD in articles, WATCH :thus is from his article below:

          Further, Ciaramella (pronounced char-a-MEL-ah) left his National Security Council posting in the White House’s West Wing in mid-2017 amid concerns about negative leaks to the media.

          Notice he emphasizes his name is pronounced CHAR A MELL AH………now does the text that mentions Charley as being the CI turn a light bulb on ?

          He was indeed a CI and Sen. Grassly and Johnson was on his tracks, they just didn’t know who he was yet, they only knew him by Charlie, but they wrote Barr and vented their concerns that the FBI/CIA {who ever Charley worked for, they was unsure} had a CI embedded in the White House.

          So this guy claiming to be a WB when he was more than likely already a Target is a joke.

          If you have any of those sixth senses that let you smell a rat, or hear the drum beating before anyone else, then it was clear, right out of the gate, that Steele provided nothing more than his letterhead.
          A former UK spy that “hated” Trump? You know, right then and there, the Washington Deep (Shallow- they’ve outed themselves) State Mob is weaving a lie. And now that they’ve woven so many lies, their only out now is to brazenly declare themselves the “Good Guys”. And their Media Mob family Quislings are rushing their criminal, spindly legs to shore up the lie.

        The concept here is that there were prior dossiers that were used to build the Steele Dossier.

        Haven’t read the book yet, and this doesn’t rule out Blumenthal as a contributor to Steele, but 2017 is too late. By Feb 2017, Steele’s Piss Dossier was all public. Comey’s briefing, Clapper’s leak of the briefing, had allowed the press to say it existed, which allowed other press to publish it. All before the President took office.

          Looking backwards, much of the information in the article maybe directly from Simpson, Ohr and the other person I don’t remember who were digging this stuff up before 2017.

          Also the actual research and writing was done way prior to the LRB publishing date. It is a book review journal, not a newspaper. It can take up to six months to be published or more as it goes through editorial review.

      Glad Nunes is finally getting around to the “protodossiers” thing, something Dan Bongino has talked about for over a year now and is in his first book released in early October of 2018.

      I am constantly dismayed how even Trumps _apparent_ allies are so far behind in the knowledge game. Only now that Barr/Durham APPEAR to be FINALLY getting around to something that could have obliterated Mueller from day one, Joseph Mifsud, does Nunes recently give a long interview where he mentions Mifsud and begs for him to come forward as if, since Mifsud isn’t hiding in a cave in Syria, the mechanisms of a 4.2 TRILLION dollar government couldn’t find him if they wanted to. Thing is, they DON’T want to.

      And, BTW, I think the claim that Mifsud fears his life is in danger is merely a ruse to FOREVER excuse him from coming forward. HE may not be in on the ruse, but an Italian newspaper article quite some time ago linked to in a Papa-D tweet claimed that Italian intel had told him to lie low. However, the article didn’t provide the reason why they did so. If an intel agency told you that your life was in danger, even if that was completely untrue and for their own benefit, wouldn’t YOU lie low?

    G2’s (likely a D-insider) said his reason for doing so, was to show he was “bi-partisan,” & had no loyalty to either candidate. Never-mind it was Dem political opposition research, & they’d been distributing it to all their operatives with instructions to use that info. IIRC, This was back in May/June 2016.

    I could not put the book down. Fascinating read. branches of intel community plant press leaks then use the leaks to interview people.

    But its also scary as hell.

    To me , he last 3 years show that we can’t re-elect Trump and capture control of the Senate and House what is left of the supposed rule by “we the people” will be gone forever.

    The read reinforced that –

    I am coffing up as much money as I can in support of Trump and Repubs running for Senate and House. Have former high ranking military officers and vets running for both here.

    Seem to be people of courage and integrity. More people like Nunes – who displayed both in spades. We need many more people like that in Washington – only hope I can see. That and more outlets like this one.

    I am also trying to email all Repub Senators listed on this link:

    https://www.senate.gov/general/contact_information/senators_cfm.cfm

    I am copying the same message to all of them:

    “I just finished reading The Plot Against the President by Lee Smith. Also am following the info that is coming from Flynn’s lawyer on how he was set up by the US Intel Community.

    Considering how Schiff has proven to be a zealot who will stop at nothing to impeach Trump and his many past lies it seems logical to believe this latest bid to impeach Trump is also an Intel Community connected set up.

    Therefore it is imperative that either the case gets dismissed out of hand by the Senate as the evidence being too tainted or failing that- that the trial be delayed until the DOJOG report is issued and Durham’s criminal investigation is complete.

    Unless and until the case against Trump is made openly and with truly verified facts from truly reliable and verified sources it is logical and reasonable to assume that Trump is being set up AGAIN.

    The Senate must act as a check on the rogue House and its coup attempt.”

  19. This isn’t a protodossier, but it definitely fits into the early Anti-Trump / Deep State / Media narrative and contains most of the now hackneyed templates still used by the media today.

    It was authored by Evelyn Farkas (yes, THAT Evelyn Farkas) in early April, 2016 – a full seven months before DJT’s election. A supposed “expert” on Russia, Farkas wrote this six months after leaving the 0bama administration due to his failure to take an aggressive stand against Putin. She was also reportedly slated to be the Assist. Sect. of Defense in Hillary’s administration.

    Of course today she is known for being the bug-eyed boob who was seen in a 2017 interview blabbing about the 0bama administration seeding the federal government with the garbage from the “dossier” prior to leaving office and gave us one of the earliest clues who was behind the pseudo-scandal.

It was a strange episode and they really tried to plant the Trump Russia story at that time. Then they did a show after the 2016 election night and they claimed that Russia must have helped President Trump win, it was infuriating. Mark Halperin, John Heilemann and Mark McKinnon were the producers and hosts of the show, they were also the people who followed the candidates around.

    Herridge’s move is said to have been in the works for several weeks, and is not tied to Smith’s exit. Her contract with Fox News lapsed this summer, and the network had been negotiating to get her to stay, according to a person familiar with the matter. She has not been known for jousting with the opinion programs, making frequent appearances on Fox News’ most-watched program, “Hannity.” The opportunity to move to CBS News was seen as one she could not turn down, this person said.

      CBS needed a reporter with integrity. By hiring Herridge they have one of the best. She never gets in front of her skis and she doggedly digs for the truth. I sincerely hope CBS isn’t seeking to silence Catherine. She is too good and too honest to have that happen. Unfortunately, CBS doesn’t exactly have an honorable reputation.

    The difference between Lee Smith’s book and all the others, is he actually interviewed the people involved. We learned so many knew things, including how Jeff Sessions recused himself.

    Crazed Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Ca) said that closed-door impeachment hearings will keep happening for an undetermined amount of time. The hearings behind closed doors, which have reportedly included House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Ca) blocking Republicans from asking witnesses certain questions, will continue as long as they are productive, Pelosi told Bloomberg News. Even after the full House voted to allow open hearings Pelosi said those hearings could start in November.

    In other words no one will hear the hearings unless a crime can be found.

    However she said she couldn’t rule out the investigation continuing into 2020 despite it being an election year. “I don’t know what the timetable will be—the truth will set us free,” she said. “We have not made any decisions on if the president will be impeached. There is, I should say, a mountain of concerns to be brought up.” Notice Pelosi suggested the probe could drag on into next year and include actions Trump took that have nothing to do with Ukraine.

    In other words the widespread fishing expedition continues.

      Notice, the vote was to allow open hearings. It didn’t’ take say they would happen. It didn’t say there would be any fairness in the process. It only guaranteed that the Witch Hunt moved from the DoJ/FBI to the basement of the House. I surmise that Nazi knows that Durham won’t be able to interview the inquisitors in her House. Taking her cues from the Kremlin of old, she is able to orchestrate the Schifft Show (don’t think little Bug Eyes is capable of this deep level of deviousness. She can, however, wind up little Bug Eyes, point him in the desired direction, and set off his mouth. He is way more controllable than NoNads. Nazi wanted everyone to believe she was apprehensive about impeachment when, in point of fact, the only one with more laser-focused impeachment radar was her state-mate, Ms. Peach Fawty Fi.

    The country and society as a whole now accepts lies and actually debates those lies. All the words that have been spoken and written about this on going coup need to stop. Stand up and call BS just what it is BS. Walk out of any circumstance that is obviously a set up. Time start taking action, words are just another way to prolong the power of the corrupt.

    I read somewhere..(Maybe here), that Sidney Blumenthal and Cody Shearer were the Real “Authors” of the “Steele Dossier”… Haven’t heard much on that lately.???

    Funny watching the news this morning as they try to make it look like Manafort is behind Trump’s “Ukraine hacking” theory. Because the media has been a mix of complicit co-conspirators and willfully blind, they don’t realize that the Manafort stuff BOLSTERS Trump’s claim that he as president needs to get to the bottom of how the Russia-hoax got started. And the Manafort stuff shows that even back in 2016, there were people who knew the Ukraine was involved in this mess.

    The media wants to pretend the Ukraine is not involved. But the Democrats’ hysteria at hearing Trump talk about Biden and Crowdstrike demonstrates that they are panicked that Trump might have them by the balls…

    The book is worth your time, particularly the specific names of media reporters complicit in the coup. It’s fascinating how the FBI/DOJ collaborate with friend in the media to push their agenda.

    I remember reading that many of Steel’s rumors (though they weren’t called protodossiers then) were shopped around the media early on, but found no takers at that time. That always struck me as an unexpected display of journo-ethics from the swamp media.

    But now I’m wondering if they only showing the rumors at that time to get FEEDBACK from the media? Could that have been part of Fusion’s market-testing process, making sure their BS was shovel-ready before they actually offered them for publication.

    Was the media giving Fusion feedback on “this is what else the story would need before we would print it” or “we’d have to have a quote from an unidentified source at this level in the intelligence community” to provide cover for running such a story?

    The swamp is a symbiotic biosphere. Powerful predators at the top of the food chain insure a dependable food supply for thousands of scavengers.
