According to several media reports AG Bill Barr is scheduled to have a meeting today with Senator Lindsey Graham for an update on the Horowitz and Durham investigations:

[…] Sen. Lindsey O. Graham (R-S.C.), chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, plans to meet Wednesday with Barr to talk about the report’s planned rollout, according to people familiar with the matter. (link)

Then, moments ago, this little innocuous sighting popped up amid the DC media:

Probably just a coincidence [*hmmm*], or maybe not….

According to recent reports U.S. Attorney John Durham and U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr are spending time on a narrowed focus looking carefully at CIA activity in the 2016 presidential election. One recent quote from a media-voice increasingly sympathetic to a political deep-state notes:

“One British official with knowledge of Barr’s wish list presented to London commented that “it is like nothing we have come across before, they are basically asking, in quite robust terms, for help in doing a hatchet job on their own intelligence services””. (Link)

It is interesting that quote comes from a British intelligence official, as there appears to be mounting evidence of an extensive CIA operation that likely involved U.K. intelligence services. In addition, and as a direct outcome, there is an aspect to the CIA operation that overlaps with both a U.S. and U.K. need to keep Wikileaks founder Julian Assange under tight control. In this outline we will explain where corrupt U.S. and U.K. interests merge.

To understand the risk that Julian Assange represented to CIA interests, it is important to understand just how extensive the operations of the CIA were in 2016.

It is within this network of foreign and domestic operations where FBI Agent Peter Strzok is clearly working as a bridge between the CIA and FBI operations.

By now people are familiar with the construct of CIA operations involving Joseph Mifsud, the Maltese professor now generally admitted/identified as a western intelligence operative who was tasked by the CIA (John Brennan) to run an operation against Trump campaign official George Papadopoulos in both Italy (Rome) and London. {Go Deep}

In a similar fashion the CIA tasked U.S. intelligence asset Stefan Halper to target another Trump campaign official, Carter Page. Under the auspices of being a Cambridge Professor Stefan Halper also targeted General Michael Flynn. Additionally, using assistance from a female FBI agent under the false name Azra Turk, Halper also targeted Papadopoulos.

The initial operations to target Flynn, Papadopoulos and Page were all based overseas. This seemingly makes the CIA exploitation of the assets and the targets much easier.

One of the more interesting aspects to the Durham probe is a possibility of a paper-trail created as a result of the tasking operations. We should watch closely for more evidence of a paper trail as some congressional reps have hinted toward documented evidence (transcripts, recordings, reports) that are exculpatory to the targets (Page & Papadop). HPSCI Ranking Member Devin Nunes has strongly hinted that very specific exculpatory evidence was known to the FBI and yet withheld from the FISA application used against Carter Page that also mentions George Papadopoulos. I digress…

However, there is an aspect to the domestic U.S. operation that also bears the fingerprints of the CIA; only this time due to the restrictive laws on targets inside the U.S. the CIA aspect is less prominent. This is where FBI Agent Peter Strzok working for both agencies starts to become important.

Remember, it’s clear in the text messages Strzok has a working relationship with what he called their “sister agency”, the CIA. Additionally, Brennan has admitted Strzok helped write the January 2017 Intelligence Community Assessment (ICA) which outlines the Russia narrative; and it is almost guaranteed the July 31st, 2016, “Electronic Communication” from the CIA to the FBI that originated FBI operation “Crossfire Hurricane” was co-authored from the CIA by Strzok…. and Strzok immediately used that EC to travel to London to debrief intelligence officials around Australian Ambassador to the U.K. Alexander Downer.

In short, Peter Strzok appears to be the very eager, profoundly overzealous James Bond wannabe, who acted as a bridge between the CIA and the FBI. The perfect type of FBI career agent for CIA Director John Brennan to utilize.

Fusion-GPS founder Glenn Simpson hired CIA Open Source analyst Nellie Ohr toward the end of 2015; at appropriately the same time as “FBI Contractors” were identified exploiting the NSA database and extracting information on a specific set of U.S. persons.

It was also Fusion-GPS founder Glenn Simpson who was domestically tasked with a Russian lobbyist named Natalia Veselnitskya. A little reported Russian Deputy Attorney General named Saak Albertovich Karapetyan was working double-agents for the CIA and Kremlin. Karapetyan was directing the foreign operations of Natalia Veselnitskaya, and Glenn Simpson was organizing her inside the U.S.

Glenn Simpson managed Veselnitskaya through the 2016 Trump Tower meeting with Donald Trump Jr. However, once the CIA/Fusion-GPS operation using Veselnitskaya started to unravel with public reporting… back in Russia Deputy AG Karapetyan fell out of a helicopter to his death (just before it crashed).

Simultaneously timed in late 2015 through mid 2016, there was a domestic FBI operation using a young Russian named Maria Butina tasked to run up against republican presidential candidates. According to Patrick Byrne, Butina’s handler, it was FBI agent Peter Strzok who was giving Byrne the instructions on where to send her. {Go Deep}

All of this context outlines the extent to which the CIA was openly involved in constructing a political operation that settled upon anyone in candidate Donald Trump’s orbit.

International operations directed by the CIA, and domestic operations seemingly directed by Peter Strzok operating with a foot in both agencies. [Strzok gets CIA service coin]

Recap:Mifsud tasked against Papadopoulos (CIA). ♦Halper tasked against Flynn (CIA), Page (CIA), and Papadopoulos (CIA). ♦Azra Turk, pretending to be Halper asst, tasked against Papadopoulos (FBI). ♦Veselnitskaya tasked against Donald Trump Jr (CIA, Fusion-GPS). ♦Butina tasked against Trump, and Donald Trump Jr (FBI).

Additionally, Christopher Steele was a British intelligence officer, hired by Fusion-GPS to assemble and launder fraudulent intelligence information within his dossier. And we cannot forget Oleg Deripaska, a Russian oligarch, who was recruited by Asst. FBI Director Andrew McCabe to participate in running an operation against the Trump campaign and create the impression of Russian involvement. Deripaska refused to participate.

All of this engagement directly controlled by U.S. intelligence; and all of this intended to give a specific Russia impression. This predicate is presumably what John Durham is currently reviewing.

The key point of all that background is to see how committed the CIA and FBI were to the constructed narrative of Russia interfering with the 2016 election. The CIA, FBI, and by extension the DOJ, put a hell of a lot of work into it. Intelligence community work that Durham is now unraveling.

We also know specifically that John Durham is looking at the construct of the Intelligence Community Assessment (ICA); and talking to CIA analysts who participated in the construct of the January 2017 report that bolstered the false appearance of Russian interference in the 2016 election. This is important because it ties in to the next part that involves Julian Assange and Wikileaks.

On April 11th, 2019, the Julian Assange indictment was unsealed in the EDVA. From the indictment we discover it was under seal since March 6th, 2018:

(Link to pdf)

On Tuesday April 15th more investigative material was released. Again, note the dates: Grand Jury, *December of 2017* This means FBI investigation prior to….

The FBI investigation took place prior to December 2017, it was coordinated through the Eastern District of Virginia (EDVA) where Dana Boente was U.S. Attorney at the time. The grand jury indictment was sealed from March of 2018 until after Mueller completed his investigation, April 2019.

Why the delay?

What was the DOJ waiting for?

Here’s where it gets interesting….

The FBI submission to the Grand Jury in December of 2017 was four months after congressman Dana Rohrabacher talked to Julian Assange in August of 2017: “Assange told a U.S. congressman … he can prove the leaked Democratic Party documents … did not come from Russia.”

(August 2017, The Hill Via John Solomon) Julian Assange told a U.S. congressman on Tuesday he can prove the leaked Democratic Party documents he published during last year’s election did not come from Russia and promised additional helpful information about the leaks in the near future.

Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, a California Republican who is friendly to Russia and chairs an important House subcommittee on Eurasia policy, became the first American congressman to meet with Assange during a three-hour private gathering at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London, where the WikiLeaks founder has been holed up for years.

Rohrabacher recounted his conversation with Assange to The Hill.

“Our three-hour meeting covered a wide array of issues, including the WikiLeaks exposure of the DNC [Democratic National Committee] emails during last year’s presidential election,” Rohrabacher said, “Julian emphatically stated that the Russians were not involved in the hacking or disclosure of those emails.”

Pressed for more detail on the source of the documents, Rohrabacher said he had information to share privately with President Trump. (read more)

Knowing how much effort the CIA and FBI put into the Russia collusion-conspiracy narrative, it would make sense for the FBI to take keen interest after this August 2017 meeting between Rohrabacher and Assange; and why the FBI would quickly gather specific evidence (related to Wikileaks and Bradley Manning) for a grand jury by December 2017.

Within three months of the grand jury the DOJ generated an indictment and sealed it in March 2018. The EDVA sat on the indictment while the Mueller probe was ongoing.

As soon as the Mueller probe ended, on April 11th, 2019, a planned and coordinated effort between the U.K. and U.S. was executed; Julian Assange was forcibly arrested and removed from the Ecuadorian embassy in London, and the EDVA indictment was unsealed (link).

As a person who has researched this three year fiasco; including the ridiculously false 2016 Russian hacking/interference narrative: “17 intelligence agencies”, Joint Analysis Report (JAR) needed for Obama’s anti-Russia narrative in December ’16; and then a month later the ridiculously political Intelligence Community Assessment (ICA) in January ’17; this timing against Assange is too coincidental.

It doesn’t take a deep researcher to see the aligned Deep State motive to control Julian Assange because the Mueller report was dependent on Russia cybercrimes, and that narrative is contingent on the Russia DNC hack story which Julian Assange disputes.

This is critical. The Weissmann/Mueller report contains claims that Russia hacked the DNC servers as the central element to the Russia interference narrative in the U.S. election. This claim is directly disputed by WikiLeaks and Julian Assange, as outlined during the Dana Rohrabacher interview, and by Julian Assange on-the-record statements.

The predicate for Robert Mueller’s investigation was specifically due to Russian interference in the 2016 election. The fulcrum for this Russia interference claim is the intelligence community assessment; and the only factual evidence claimed within the ICA is that Russia hacked the DNC servers; a claim only made possible by relying on forensic computer analysis from Crowdstrike, a DNC contractor.

The CIA holds a massive conflict of self-interest in upholding the Russian hacking claim. The FBI holds a massive interest in maintaining that claim. All of those foreign countries whose intelligence apparatus participated with Brennan and Strzok also have a vested self-interest in maintaining that Russia hacking and interference narrative.

Julian Assange is the only person with direct knowledge of how Wikileaks gained custody of the DNC emails; and Assange has claimed he has evidence it was not from a hack.

This Russian “hacking” claim is ultimately so important to the CIA, FBI, DOJ, ODNI and U.K intelligence apparatus…. Well, right there is the obvious motive to shut Assange down as soon intelligence officials knew the Mueller report was going to be public.

Now, if we know this, and you know this; and everything is cited and factual… well, then certainly AG Bill Barr knows this.

The $64,000 dollar question is: will they say so publicly?

    A couple of weeks ago there were headlines about Assange US extradition case. Judge denied any delay for Assange team. His case will start Feb 25th. The lawyer also claims the “american state” was spying on the embassy illegally. So many facets to this entire saga.

    snip

    ‘Mark Summers, defending Assange, claimed the US had been spying on his client and said there was a link between the “reinvigoration of the investigation and Donald Trump’s presidency”.

    “This is part of an avowed war on whistleblowers to include investigative journalists and publishers,” Summers said. “The American state has been actively engaged in intruding on privileged discussions between Mr Assange and his lawyer.”

    He referred to reports that Spanish courts are investigating a security company that allegedly worked in conjunction with the US to “obtain information by unlawful acts, thefts and clandestine surveillance within the Ecuadorian embassy … with increasing intensity from 2017 onwards”, and asked for more time to prepare evidence for the case.

    The prosecutor James Lewis QC, representing the UK government, said he strongly opposed Assange being given more time to prepare evidence, pre-empting their later request.’

              But it has not taken that long has it.

              Until Mueller was out, it would have been very difficult for Barr to do anything that would undermine Mueller. Barr relatively quickly after taking office forced Mueller’s hand and got Mueller to publish the report.

              Fairly soon after that, Barr raised his concerns about spying, and that it might have been political in nature without proper predicate. This was just a few months ago. Durham has been appointed, the scope of Durham’s investigations widened, beyond the predicate, and now it has been turned into a criminal investigation. Further the DOJ has obviously released sensitive information to Sydney Powell so that she could draft her €xplosive recent filings. That gives a good indication that the DOJ is serious about what went on, and taking steps to correct it. I think that one should not underestimate the importance of what has gone on between Ms Powell and the DOJ. And all of this has happened in just a few months. To me that looks like quite a lot of progress, in a short period of time.

              I understand people’s frustration with the slow progress made by the Republicans when they controlled both the Senate and Congress, and the failure of any hard action by Graham, but it is difficult, at this stage, to fault Barr.

              I was surprised to hear Barr’s comments about Wray, but of course none of us here know the full inside story. Apart from that question mark, I see no reason at this stage to criticize AG Barr. Let us wait and see how it pans out.

          It is long past time to have this all subjected to a very real and very open investigation. If all of the wild “conspiracy theories” turn out to be connected and have a nexus of truth to them, so many things will finally be explained.

          McCabe’s bizarre behavior, the inexplicable handling of the Rich murder investigation, Nellie Ohr’s ham radio, the “insurance policy”, We’ll “get rid of this guy”, Brennan and Clapper looking like a couple of small old men worrying about a sword belonging to a dude name Damocles hanging over them … and on and on.

          If Horowitz and Durham somehow have the sack to expose a broad and pernicious conspiracy within the FBI CIA and DOJ to “get” Trump – whatever their motivation – the entire edifice collapses. That the Ukraine “whistleblower” is a Deep State CIA operative somehow tasked to the White House, and then returned under accusation of partisan leaking will just be the final straw.

          The impeachment circus is no more than a propaganda campaign to smear Trump before the election. Perhaps Barr and Durham have been slow walking it to wait for the Democrats to blow their wad, so they can come in and tear the entire thing down. At this point, noting would surprise me.

          I don’t pretend that Trump is some great statesman being unfairly persecuted. He is a bull headed, inarticulate simpleton who somehow became POTUS. As in his business life, he has had some spectacular successes and some stinkers. But, on balance, he has done exceptionally well. He didn’t havre to go to work, and he didn’t have to become President. He chose both to prove himself, and I’m sure his biggest regret is that he never got to sit his father down in the Oval Office and say “So, Dad, was i the best, or what?” And for his father to say “Yeah, Donny, you did good.” But, as he has for virtually all his partners in the RE biz, he delivered the goods for the USA. He kept the flagging recovery going, he kept the stock market afloat, he took on China point blank, no shit, in the Octagon, he forced Mexico to take on their share of the migrant problem, got the wall going, and exposed the lies and hypocrisy of the Dems on the entire range of the issue. He is trying to protect the US from the all-out drug war in Mexico. The Democrats want to make our border completely open – for Mexican drug gangs to come here and threaten our safety. Trump says no.

          It’s a friggin remarkable record for a guy with no experience, fighting an obstructionist House. He dumped the Kurdish/Syria problem on Putin (and it looks largely solved). He got NATO members to pony up their share. It’s a long list.

          If Horowitz and Barr can expose the fraud behind the entire small group attack on Trump that has led to the Democrat hysteria on impeachment, and we can go back to REGULAR POLITICS rather than this INSANE CIRCUS, this phenomenal list of accomplishments can grow, and if we close good deals with China and the EU, watch the US rapidly start to make up lost ground froM the past 30 years. Maybe it’s a pipe dream.

          Let’s let the people decide. I for one want to see what comes next if this country gets unleashed with full, fair trade, rebuilding manufacturing, producing more oil and gas than anyone on the planet, bringing the benefit of this growth to the middle class and new, legal American citizens and immigrants. The only way to limit the impact of our enormous embedded debt burden is to grow our way out of it. You cant tax it away. You sure as shit can’t spend it away. Let’s put this trash behind us, have an election, and see if the American people would like to give Trump a shot at GOVERNING without the entire apparatus of our government intelligence community out to destroy him,.

His personal code allows him to be trusted that he is being truthful in what he says but ultimately untrustworthy because he’s just as likely to turn on you should you do something that violates that same personal code that allows him to be trusted in the moment.

      The US charge against Assange is the same one the government attempted against the NYT and the Ellsberg revelations — a case of freedom of the press.

      As Sundance makes clear, our DEEP STATE worked overtime between 2015 and yesterday to connect Donald Trump with anything Russian — be it Moscow real estate, the Kremlin, internet puppet masters, or catering companies used by Putin for City receptions, when Deputy Mayor of St Petersburg, in the 1980s — anything. Wikileaks revealing DNC maneuvers to deny Sanders the 2016 Democrat Presidential Nomination was a darn sight more political than any catering company.

      Then Congressman Rohrabacher reveals that Assange denied a Russian role in the DNC leak. A panicked DEEP STATE activates UK intelligence to frame, arrest and silence Assange.

      YEARS go by… Fast forward to September, 2019. Our President is overheard saying in a telephone call, “I would like you to do us a favor though because our country has been through a lot and Ukraine knows a lot about it. I would like you to find out what happened with this whole situation with Ukraine, they say Crowdstrike… I guess you have one of your wealthy people… The server, they say Ukraine has it…” We didn’t even know that PDJT KNEW about Crowdstrike and the server.

      Then, just five weeks later, the only known politician with direct knowledge of Julian Assange and the ‘hacking of the DNC’, Dana Rohrabacher, is seen 4,500 miles away from his California home, in Washington, D.C. Simultaneously, Nancy Pelosi and the House Dems have accelerated impeachment hearings, after learning about PDJT’s phone call where he mentioned Crowdstrike.

      The occurrence of these three events is NOT a coincidence. It’s just not.

    If the AG cannot do “a hatchet job” on an out of control CIA then this country is ruled/governed by the CIA who if they can do this kind of thing to a person running for the presidency can do a hatchet job on any of us at any time. JUST LIKE THE KGB and NAZI Party.

    If the CIA has done all that the evidence seems to point to, then it needs to be disbanded, and we need to start over with a whole new “intelligence” agency, one that is not controlled by or part of ANY political party.

        A number of books by serious authors, mostly liberal, like Roger Morris and Christoper Hitchens, suggest strongly that Bill Clinton was recruited by the CIA in 1968 to be a CIA informant re foreign influence on the anti-war movement. Bill Clinton’s travels in the US Europe 1969-70 all seem connected to various anti-war conferences. That includes his New Mobe meeting in Martha’s Vineyard in 1969. One very interesting angle that I have been looking into is obtaining the passenger list for Clinton’s October 1968 USS United States voyage NY-South Hampton. Bill Clinton then met and spent lots of time with LBJ fixer Bobby Baker “and Baker’s entourage” during the voyage. Baker’s entourage included shapely blondes. Baker specialized in honey-traps and party girls. I have read some accounts that Watergate lady Heidi Rikan was connected to Baker. Heidi Rikan was connected to Billy Sol Estes along with many figures in LBJ’s circle. Later in the early 1970s Heidi hooked up with John and Maureen Dean, Barry Goldwater Jr. & Sr., Sam Dash, Ervin Committee chief counsel, senator Lowell Weicker, mob figure Carlos Marcello, Texas shady LBJ bagman Morris Jaffe, Ben Barnes, DNC Chair John White, Tex.

        “Why do you assume murder?” 1) Podesta had said in a subsequently leaked e-mail that there was to be “wet work” that weekend. 2) He died on a ranch owned by a democrat. 3) The normal coroner for the area was out of town 4) the autopsy was done within hours of his death 5) …

        The Dems had learned from the 2000 election that any disputed vote tally case could make its way to the Supreme Court (after wending its way through the appellate courts). Most of the swing states were in appellate districts where the courts were dominated by Obama or Bill Clinton appointees. The Dems had gamed this out and realized that they could get a favorable decision in an appellate court, but it could get overturned by a 5-4 conservative SCOTUS. A 4-4 Supreme Court, however, couldn’t overturn an appellate court decision. Getting rid of Scalia was “prepping the battlefield”.

Local rule, regardless of age; if a death is unexpected (even if a person has known illnesses), then the state will do an autopsy and can even if the person’s family objects. Key word here is unexpected, and the coroner’s report (political office) is a part of the record. Also note that if resuscitation is attempted, that changes things. If a person with pneumonia dies, such a death would not be unexpected, even if it happened within 24 hours (such cases are known). Just what does unexpected mean here …. that’s a bit rubbery, so we are left to speculate.

    March 11, 2018

    Dimitry Alperovich – the CEO of Crowdstrike that “investigated” the hacking of the DNC’s servers is a Non-Resident Senior Fellow at Atlantic. The FBI was refused access to independently examine the DNC servers. Interestingly, Alperovich’s bio appears to have been disabled.

    The Crowdstrike findings have been repeatedly called into questioned:

    A New Report Raises Big Questions About Last Year’s DNC Hack – forensics indicate that DNC emails were copied by an insider via USB and not hacked via external actors.

    Intel Vets Challenge ‘Russia Hack’ Evidence – DNC data was copied onto a storage device at a speed that far exceeds an Internet capability for a remote hack. Forensics show that the copying was performed on the East coast of the U.S.

    New Questions Over Claim Russia Hacked the Election – Cybersecurity experts who were first to conclude that Putin hacked presidential election abandon some of their claims against Russia – and refuse to co-operate with Congress.

    James Clapper – Obama’s Director of National Intelligence, serves on the Atlantic Council’s International Advisory Board. Clapper was the architect of the report on Russian Election Interference – Assessing Russian Activities and Intentions in Recent U.S. Elections.

    I encourage you to read the report. I think you’ll find it surprisingly lacking in detail – highly generalized with very little in the way of substance.

    The report was technically created by a joint effort between the CIA (former Director John Brennan), FBI (former Director James Comey) and the NSA (current Director Mike Rogers) – and assembled by the DNI (former Director James Clapper).

    The joint report contains one significant caveat:

    CIA and FBI have high confidence in this judgment; NSA has only moderate confidence.

    Actually, NSA Director Admiral Mike Rogers stated in Senate hearing testimony that his confidence did not reach even this threshold:

    “I wouldn’t call it a discrepancy, I’d call it an honest difference of opinion between three different organizations and in the end I made that call.…It didn’t have the same level of sourcing and the same level of multiple sources.”

    In essence, the DNI’s report was constructed by just three men – former DNI Director Clapper, former CIA Director Brennan and former FBI Director Comey.

    • Zippy says:

      There is plenty of evidence within within relevant files associated with the DNC “hack” that someone was trying to make it LOOK like Russians had done it.

      Also, the only agency that could trace retroactively any remote internet connections to the DNC server would be the NSA. HOWEVER, I assume since their traces could only involve incoming IP addresses FROM a foreign machine while not being able to trace any connection made TO that machine, with the actual hacker’s machine in, say, the UKRAINE, and the compromised machine being remotely controlled and used for the hack being located in, say, RUSSIA, the NSA, without the “multiple sources” (ALL BOGUS) of the FBI and CIA could not be certain of the ACTUAL origin of the attack since neither Russia nor the Ukraine would be willing to provide the needed tracing information from within their own internal internet networks. That would be why NSA’s Rogers had reservations.

      In short, hackers don’t stupidly use their own machines to directly execute a major hack. They work through another potentially far distant machine they have compromised and then eliminate their traces within that machine. At least from what I’ve read.

Again, the verbiage is somewhat tortured in an apparently clickbait friendly sensationalist fashion. It doesn’t clearly assert that his body was found in the wreckage, but it doesn’t state that it wasn’t found there, or anywhere in particular, either.

    The oddity of the crash was that the flight was undertaken by an experienced pilot in extremely poor flying conditions and the flight was not authorized, ultimately crashing in a mountainous area, which obviously can happen without plummeting, one can thus be flying straight and level in clear air, until the mountain intervenes by refusing to yield way. That the flight was undertaken in this fashion in these conditions does seem to invite speculation as to what motivated it, as well as whether the mountain was the only meany involved…

    3. Our governments issues an extremely sketchy (ridiculous, really) ICA in which 3 agencies conclude with “high confidence” that Russia hacked the server, even though they never examined the server. (The fourth, DNI, simply felt it was “likely.”) I spent a bit of time on this because it really is the smoking gun of an effort to distract. If you understand what ICAs are, you understand that this can’t possibly happen “unrigged.” (Read “Superforecasting” for great background on what ICAs are today.)
    4. An independent group of former intelligence professionals (VIPS) issues a report conclusively demonstrating that the server could not have been hacked “from the outside,” meaning the information could only have been stolen by someone with direct, physical access to the server (e.g., Seth Rich, or those 5 Pakistani IT employees whose crimes were covered up).

    There’s more, but let’s look at the Assange indictment. When you read it, he’s accused of attempting to help Manning break cryptographically secure passwords. It’s an astonishingly transparent indictment. If you know IT security and how passwords are stored, the idea that they were going to break 256-bit encrypted passwords is beyond ludicrous. They accuse him of using a sophisticated tool to do so: The Linux Operating System (free to all; it runs a majority of servers worldwide). It’s a piece of trash.

    All coincidences? Maybe, but that’s not the way the smart money bets.

    Again, Occam’s razor. What’s the simple explanation? There was no hack. Assange is telling the truth. That’s why the DNC wouldn’t produce the server and the FBI didn’t subpoena it. The ‘Russia collusion’ narrative needed to be bolstered another way, hence the ICA report. The VIPS report utterly refutes that so . . . ignore it. Shut up Assange and the media can continue ramming this Russia collusion down a gullible public’s throats.

      Everything you stated is plausible/likley. I’m holding the line on 302 shenanigans. IMO, given the credibility issues of the mueller crew and associated DoJ straphangers, I don’t believe it was an honest mistake.

      The question then is, what is Rohrabacher’s play in all this? What are his motivations? Has he moved the ball forward?

        I resent that possible insult also. I was writing device drivers for UNIX back in 1978 — lovely to work in environment, but not “secure” by a mile. Later kernel secure versions did that. BTW — UNIX source code ans site license from ATT Bell Labs cost $40,000 in 1978, with zero support.

    • My interpretation – as someone who has performed (non-criminal) computer forensics investigations before – is that there really isn’t credible evidence that this server existed, much less that it was “hacked,” much much less by “Russians.”

      The only thing that we actually know is that a certain quantity of said-to-be authentic messages wound up on WikiLeaks. And, we also know that the FBI quite-inexplicably accepted a so-called “analysis” proffered by a company paid-for by the very same people who most stood to benefit from their claim. Finally, we know that several Federal agencies who are supposed to know better signed-on to this entire thing, leaving only the ever-honorable Admiral Rogers to refuse to soil his hands with it.

      There is absolutely nothing in all of these events which even slightly matches the standards required of an actual forensic investigation … as Adm. Rogers perfectly well knew, and as everyone in our business also knows. As Baby Herman quipped on Who Framed Roger Rabbit, “this whole thing stinks like yestahday’s diahpers!” 💩

  33. At this point, I simply want these professionals to be timely reaching the proper end to their extremely important work. I want to see the IG Report published, with a minimum number of redactions, and I want to see Durham’s prosecutorial investigations begin to bear fruit.

    I don’t want either effort to compromise quality in the name of expediency, but I feel that enough time has now passed that we should reasonably begin to see the Sword of Damocles fall upon certain people’s heads.

    We all know how this is scripted to end my friends. I hope that Durham can change the course of history and keep Assange alive. If we base this off of the fact that Barr didn’t lift a finger to protect Epstein, then Assange is a dead man walking. Once his fate is confirmed, the deadman switches should be triggered. So what, too late.

    Graham is the ultimate protector of the Deep State, but he wants folks to think he loves Trump. Graham is the TROJAN HORSE. Graham is the snake in Trump’s poem. Graham has done nothing with Judicial, and has indicated that he will step down after the election from his Chairmanship (do nothing, mission accomplished).

    Assange’s end is already scripted to coincide with the Trump impeachment. I don’t know how those two events are connected. But I feel they are.

    So what is the signal to open fire? There has been voluminous amounts of information out there for public consumption for years now. Much of it verified and corroborated. Enough to lock some of these traitors up- or at least arrest and send to trial. I know there has to be meticulous gathering of evidence, but how much longer is this going to take? It’s getting really old hearing Republicans spout off their taking points about two-tired justice. Freaking do something about it. Play offense for a change. …history will judge them… how about a jury judging them?

    Manure Raju’s tweet was a “heads up” to the Deep Staters. Why else would he single out Dana and tweet about it??? Every day former Congress people are in DC. Why single out Dana?

    I’ll tell you this. I worked on Dana’s campaign in 2018. The Dummycrappers, Harley Rouda specifically, made a HUGE deal out of Dana’s connections to Russia, citing FBI breifling Dana on “Kremlin attempts to recruit” Dana. As if that makes Dana a spy!! The FBI was smearing more than just DJT in 2017.

    I met with Dana a few times. Once, after a fundraiser I asked him specifically about the DNC emails and he told me directly that Seth Rich was the source.

    The DNC and all it’s affiliated groups outspent Dana 10-1 in that campaign. They wanted him out.

    I HATE Harley Rouda’s presence and am working to get his scummy butt out of Congress in 2020.

    Again, do not get bogged down in minutia.
    People tend to want to find an evil genius, a Moriarty, to blame things on. But, that is not what happened in this case. The Establishment; including government, political, economic and simply powerful people; wanted nothing more than to maintain the status quo. They wanted to protect themselves and their lifestyles. To do this, they wanted HRC elected President. And, they were willing to cheat, use illegal measures, to gain what they wanted. So, we had illegal government surveillance of US citizens, within the US. Everything is going swimmingly, except for Servergate, which was a direct threat to HRC and would just not go away.

    Enter the first spoiler, Adm. Rogers. Finding widespread illegal use of the NSA database, authorized out of the FBI, he shuts the door on that access, in early 2016. And, this is where everything starts to go South for the political/government Establishment. Surveillance of the Trump Campaign has to continue. So, the Establishment turns to the agency which is the most experienced in clandestine intelligence gathering, the occasional overthrow of governments, the CIA. The first operation was to use friendly foreign intelligence agencies to continue the electronic surveillance of the Trump campaign. This was accomplished through a one-off with the British GCHQ, the equivalent of the US NSA, which had access to raw NSA data through the Five-Eyes agreement. The second part of the operation was to place a humint source inside the Trump Campaign, The third part of the operation was two-fold: 1) To establish a predicate for the Russian Collusion Theory, in order to open a domestic counter intelligence to gain a Title 1 FISA warrant against a member of the Trump campaign who would supply two-hop access to the whole campaign and 2) to generate false accusations and narratives, against the Trump campaign, to be used politically. Once the predicate was established, the surveillance operation was handed off to the FBK. Remember, at this point, the polls all showed HRC totally dominating Trump. This was all nothing more than an insurance policy, at that point. But, it did not run as anticipated.

    The effort to gain the required FISA warrant ran aground, as the OCONUS operations against Papadopolous and Manafort could not produce credible evidence hat they were foreign agents, a qualifying necessity for the issuance of a Title 1 warrant. At this point, Our Man Strzok texts that they may have to burn one of their assets to gain a warrant. Shortly thereafter, a warrant is sought against Carter Page, who has a long history of association with the FBI and, by his admission, the CIA in clandestine surveillance activities. Even that fails to go well. So, they introduce the Steele Dossier, originally a political document, a fabricated affidavit for cause and, possibly, a sympathetic FISA judge to gain a Title 1 warrant on Page.

    Now, as all ongoing counter intelligence operations, especially ones involving the campaign of a Presidential candidate, are reported to the POTUS, it is logical to assume that the WH, including the POTUS was aware of this whole thing, and allowed or encouraged it to continue.

    But, other organs of government were involved, most especially State. You also have the private sector involved; including the media, political parties, think tanks, economic entities and foreign governments involved.

    So, you have a HUGE universe of important, powerful people involved in this fiasco. And, HRC loses. and with that loss, the umbrella for these operations is lost as well.

    Stick to the main investigative timeline, here. Start with HRC and Servergate. This is the center of the web. Once you know the trigger point, following the threads becomes relatively easy. And, this gives you a multitude of people who can blow the whole thing wide open. All it takes is a single John Dean. But, you need two things to do that: 1) pressure on the weak links and 2) a desire and willingness to actually do it.

    The more things change, the more they stay the same. The link below is to an amazingly informative interview with DC police lieutenant Carl Shoffler, one of the arresting officers of the Watergate burglars. It is VERY relevant to what is happening today. Note how Woodward & Bernstein, John Dean, Richard ben-Veniste, Jill Wine-Banks, Dan Rather, “the 17 Watergate prosecutors”, CIA officials, and many other veterans of the Nixon Silent Coup are feverishly going after Trump. Topics include sexual blackmail, Mossad, Joe Nesline (tied to big time mobsters, NFL gambling, blackmail rackets, Nathan Landow, Heidi Rikan), Steny Hoyer, Carl Bernstein, Maureen Biner, the WAPO etc.
