Benjamin Wittes ‘White-knights’ For Lisa Page…

Earlier today Lawfare founder Benjamin Wittes sent a curious tweet appearing to defend former DOJ lawyer Lisa Page; who was previously assigned to FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.   The tweet comes out of the blue; and there’s nothing currently in the public sphere or headlines about Ms. Page.   It seems rather odd:

(Link to Tweet)

My hunch is Ms. Page may have spoken honestly to Horowitz or Durham about her experience as part of the ‘small group’.  If accurate, and considering McCabe threw Page under the bus to protect himself against an internal investigation about his media leaks, Ms. Page’s current disposition may very well be adverse to the interests of the coup plotters.   [Additionally, Ms. Page had no involvement with the FBI FISA construct.]

Michael Bromwich is Andrew McCabe’s attorney.  Bromwich is a Lawfare member.

Perhaps the former Deputy Director is being positioned as the ‘fall guy’.

Dumb enough to take one for the team…unless AG Barr offered her a really good retirement plan and the highest classification witness protection?

      Here’s a better translation of the headline in question (I forget whether I saw in Ilta-Sanomat or Iltalehti, the two tabloids in Finland with obviously somewhat click-baity headlines but occasionally some journalistic standards still rearing their heads):

      The mysterious Twitter account of the FBI director kicked out by Trump was revealed – wild speculations started immediately (timestamp of the news, followed by the subheading:) Former FBI director James Comey seems to have revealed that the Twitter account which was suspected to be administered by him really belongs to him

    • If Benjamin Wittes has been posting that on Icelandic boards, it’s kind of funny! Choosing a headline from the media of the one Nordic country which the Icelanders are guaranteed NOT to understand! Had he been posting some links to Swedish, Norwegian or Danish media, the Icelanders would have been able to understand the text at least to some degree. But Finnish is not in the same language family, so the Icelanders won’t understand a word of it!

      If he really had to use something from the Finnish media to influence the Icelanders (like showing what he assumes is an anti-Trump headline from each of the other 4 Nordic countries) he should have at least been doing the trick the foreign media used for smearing the Make Finland Great Again party called The Finns Party: Quote Hufvudstadsbladet. Then the Icelanders had some chance of understanding.

      Hufvudstadsbladet is the major Swedish-speaking newspaper in Finland as there is a small but influential Swedish-speaking minority in Finland, “the most pampered minority in the world”. They are anti-nationalist as their main agenda is opposing anyone who threatens the dominance of Swedish-speaking minority (less than 5% of the population) in Finland. More than 80% of the Finns would want to abolish obligatory Swedish lessons at school for Finnish-speakers. So far you’ve had to study Swedish in all schools from the beginning of “Junior high”, but they’re now pushing to start the obligatory lessons already in elementary school. You can’t even graduate from the university without having completed one obligatory course of Swedish if you’re a native speaker of Finnish. The Finns Party is the only party openly supporting abolishing the obligation and making Swedish a voluntary elective option for school kids. That’s why they are the only party not receiving campaign contributions from the rich Swedish-speaking foundations.

        • Not really. We’ve always been between the Swedes and the Russians. If Sweden and Russia went to war in the past, it was often fought on our territory using Finnish troops. We have a saying about the Swedish defence strategy. It has remained the same for hundreds of years: they fight for the last Finn. Which is kind of true since Sweden hasn’t been involved in any wars since 1809 when they lost Finland to the Russians.

          The Russian Czars were pretty cool with Finland for a long time. We got autonomy, we kept the legal system we had, we got our own currency, postal service etc. It was during the era of autonomy when the Finnish language started to get recognition and many upper-class people too adopted Finnish as their language. Until then it had been the language of the peasants. If you wanted to get education beyond basic reading and very elementary maths, you had to learn Swedish. But a school system for everyone was set up giving elementary school education in Finnish and some high schools in Finnish were established too. First fully Finnish-speaking university only came after Independence, though.

          Finnish nationalism was awakened during autonomy. “We are no Swedes, we don’t want to become Russians, let’s be Finns!” The Finns were pretty much peacefully minding their own business with some more adventurous types going off to Russia taking advantage of possibilities for advancement in a larger country. Our future Commander-in-Chief and later President Mannerheim among others served in the Imperial Guard in Russia. But regular Finnish soldiers were not sent abroad to fight. That was forbidden by our law. There were in later years of the Czaristic rule some Russification periods when the Russians tried to make their laws supercede ours and were forcibly taking Finnish soldiers to their wars. Finns were hiding their soldiers and striking and trying all legal and sometimes illegal avenues to return to the status quo. One especially hated Governor-General Bobrikov was shot during the reign of Nicholas II, the last Czar.

          When the Czar was killed, Finland had no head of state anymore. As Finland had belonged to the Czar as his Grand Duchy, and not to the Russian Empire itself, Finns declared themselves independent December 6, 1917.

          That was followed by a bloody Civil War with Russian troops still in the country joining with the Finnish Reds trying to overthrow the government. Mannerheim who had returned from Russia when the Bolshevik Revolution took control of Russia was given the command of the White troops and in the end the Whites won the war, returning the country to the legal parliamentary rule. A couple of decades with democratic rule with some internal political turmoil followed. Finland was pretty poor with about 3 million people but there was slow progress taking place. Then came Winter War which unified the country again, Reds and Whites alike.

          November 30, 1939 the Russians bombed Helsinki. Molotov was quoted saying to the League of Nations that the Russians were only dropping breadbaskets to the starving Finns before the League of Nations kicked Soviet Union out of the organization and itself into the waste basket of history. So later on in the war when Finnish troops were given bottles of incendiary liquids to use as anti-tank weapons, the Finns said: “Hey Molotov, here are some cocktails to wash down those breadbaskets of yours!” And the name “Molotov cocktail” stuck to those poor man’s anti-tank weapons for ever.

          After 105 days of war Finland had to cede some land but remained independent. My own grandfather had lost his home to Russians and his toes to frostbites. But the Russians had been given a major kick in the teeth. Search for “Finland be afraid” and you’ll find a meme showing how badly. A Russian general was quoted saying: “We won just enough land to bury all our dead.”

          Unfortunately Stalin was not learning the lesson the first time, so he kept on plotting to take on Finland again. The Finns knew that the peace was not permanent so they started re-arming and building new defences at the new border with the help of the Germans. When Germans started Operation Barbarossa in 1941, Finns waited for the Russian bombs to drop on Finland and then attacked. We were taking back what was ours and then some to get to better natural defence lines and to have some bargaining chips for later. For years we fought against the Russians with Germans as our co-belligerents, defending sparsely populated Lapland for us in cooperation with the Finnish military but both armies were fighting under their own command. When it became apparent that Germans were losing the war further south, and we couldn’t hold off the Russians much longer, Finns started looking for a way to make peace with the Russians. Germans were withholding food and ammunition delivery unless we signed an alliance agreement promising not to sue for separate peace with the Russians. Our then President Risto Ryti showed personal courage and cunningly outsmarted the Germans. He signed the agreement but didn’t seek for approval for it from the government. Then he resigned and the Commander-in-chief Mannerheim assumed the Presidency and sued for peace. When Germans protested, they were told that the alliance agreement had been signed only by Ryti and as he had not sought approval as demanded by the law, it was not valid under the new President.

          We lost again Karelia and as a condition of peace with the Russians we had to drive the Germans out of Lapland. At first the Lapland war was a phoney war, with the Finns arriving at battlefield right after the Germans had already withdrawn. But when Stalin threatened to send his troops across the border to help with the fighting unless the Finns made some more efficient fighting actions against the Germans, the war became real. The Germans withdrew towards Norway and burned Rovaniemi, the biggest town in Lapland. We understood why they did it but obviously didn’t like it. My boyfriend is Dutch and Dutch and German sound kind of similar. So sometimes on holidays in Finland when we have been fishing and it’s time to set a fire for roasting sausages, I’ve sometimes been asked by other Finnish fishers if he’s German. When I’ve said, no he’s Dutch, the other Finns have said: “Well, in that case we can trust him with the matches!”

          Anyway, after kicking both Russian and German butts and thereby showing we punched above our weight class, Finns had to allow Soviet Union to have a couple of military bases on our southern coast and there was a Russian control commission in the country overseeing the implementation of the peace treaty. While they were around, it was discovered that Finns had been stashing weapons for guerrilla actions. That finally convinced Stalin that the Finns were better left as a neutral neighbor than a forced ally whose more likely than not to kick you in the stomach as soon as your eyes are looking in another direction. So the military bases were given back by 1952 and the Russians have stayed on their side of the border ever since. They know we don’t forget about Karelia as long as they continue to hold it.

          Since then it has been a political balancing act of doing what we want but without provoking the Russians too much. We did a pretty good job at it too for a long time, until the old wisdom carved at Suomenlinna fortress in front of Helsinki was kind of forgotten: “World to come after me, stand here on your own ground and don’t rely on the help from foreigners”. People thought European Community would provide opportunities for export and provide some protection against Russia, so we voted to join a community of independent nations working together. It turned out later to be a new prison of nations with its ever-increasing centralization of power. Some people are institutionalized like poor Brooks Hatlen in Shawshank Redemption, but there are plenty of us who are still fighting for freedom for our nation. And our numbers are growing every day with the ever crazier and increasingly treacherous policies of the current government becoming visible also to the less intuitive ones among us. Us intuitive people saw this coming already years ago and we saw how Trump can help us in our struggle to make Finland free and truly independent again. His example works as a catalyst for all nations of the world wrestling back control of their government from the globalists back to the hands of We The People where it belongs. That’s why I’m a proud Deplorable.

    What we know. Both Ben Wittes and Michael Bromwich are Lawfare lawyers. The one thing we know is they act together. They talk and cooperate together and act as one. You never see them oppose each other.

    Now SD’s speculation is that Been Wittes is signalling that Andy McCabe is going to be the fall guy. The problem I have is that Been Wittes is going to throw Michael Broomwich’s client Andy McCabe under the bus. That is hard to believe. They are on the same team.

    Been Wittes doesn’t need to talk publically to communicate with other Lawfare lawyers. They likely talk privately all the time between themselves.

She went to a crap law school and her career was unremarkable, there’s really no reason why she would achieve such a high position. Even in her messages to her luvvah Pete she admits her mediocrity and she knew there was no way she could contribute on Mueller’s team which was stocked with seasoned attorneys.

      This is what the meaning of the previous text was:

      Prometheus Unbound is a four-act lyrical drama by Percy Bysshe Shelley, first published in 1820. It is concerned with the torments of the Greek mythological figure Prometheus, who defies the gods and gives fire to humanity, for which he is subjected to eternal punishment and suffering at the hands of Zeus.

      To follow my next line of reasoning you must read the tweet Wittes put out BEFORE the one Sundance posted.

      I believe that tweet is saying that Lisa Page ( Prometheus) who defied the gods ( deepstate) and gave fire ( told the truth about the coupe ) is going to be subjected to punishment and suffering ( by the elite cabal.

      This tweet was a shot at her from the deepstate that bow conclusively knows she told all. This goes along with Trump saying “ He caught them”!

        Well spotted about the prior tweet. I’m not well read and knew nothing of the literature involved so I might have missed some deep meanings. Putting the two tweets together though it seemed to me like he was congratulating her for holding out and not spilling the beans, or maybe it was sarc if he thought she had flipped.

        Nope. The “gods” are Trump et al, the fire is her efforts to overthrow Trump, and the punishment is coming from DOJ. No way is Wittes going to praise her for turning on his pals. She’s going down and Wittes is making her out to be a martyr.

          It’s possible his praise was sarcasm. Trump does that all the time. It’s a subtle nuance. We already know that she has talked. She’s the one that told the truth about McCabe.

    This looks like a straight up threat. Why would Comey’s BFF be saying this?

    Would it really give weight to Page’s credibility if it was really meant as praise? NO not at all.

    It looks like Page is scheduled to talk to Durham and they look like they are l saying that she needs to be very careful of what she says.

    By now, everyone on all sides of this fight know that Lisa Page has been talking to investigators. Personally, I very much believe she has been singing her little heart out in order to avoid eventual jail time. But I also doubt she’s been telling anyone that, least of all her friends.

    What I suspect she HAS been telling them is something like this: “Yeah, they wanted me to throw everyone under the bus, and if I didn’t they threatened to prosecute me.” So she implies (or maybe actually states) that she’s NOT really cooperating, and so expects to be punished. That causes people like Wittes to feel bad for her, to want to defend her… so he’s just “getting out in front of” the news that’s about to come, when we learn that Page DOES indeed have something bad hanging over her head. But rather than actual charges, it’ll be more like a declaration that she’s an “unindicted co-conspirator”.

    And at that point, a little light bulb will go off in Wittes’ brain… and his opinion of Lisa will take a drastic turn.

      Well Jello, of all the theories on this thread I like yours the best. Most believable and highest probability if you add in she has young children. For me, she is one of only a few whom I wouldn’t have a problem with doing minimal time incarcerated. Maybe give her a special sentence akin to the military: four or six years doing 6-months locked up, 6-months free until the sentence is fulfilled. Maybe shoot at her every now and then to keep her on her toes. Keep reminding her that actions have consequences.

      Consiglieri Tom Hagen Meets Frank Pantangeli: Godfather Part II Video Clip

      After the hearing, Corleone family consigliere Tom Hagen (Robert Duvall) visits Pentangeli in custody. Hagen tells Pentangeli, a history buff, a story about how traitors in ancient Romecould spare their families if they committed suicide; the implication being that Michael will take care of Pentangeli’s family if he kills himself. Pentangeli thanks Hagen, returns to his assigned quarters, and slits his wrists while taking a bath.
       

      4 Min Video:

      **********************************************
      Wikipedia:….EXCERPT:
      Frank Pentangeli…Frank “Frankie Five Angels” Pentangeli is a fictional character from the film The Godfather Part II. In the film, he is portrayed by Michael V. Gazzo, who was nominated for a Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his performance, which he lost to Robert De Niro, his co-star from the same film (as young Vito Corleone). He gets his nickname from his last name, which is Greco-Italian for “five angels”….. 
       Michael knows that Pentangeli’s protective custody is too secure to make an attempt on his life before he testifies. Instead, Michael flies Pentangeli’s brother, Vincenzo, in from Sicily, and Vincenzo accompanies Michael to the hearing at which Frank is scheduled to testify. Vincenzo and Frank exchange a silent glance before the hearing. Frightened, Frank recants his earlier statements, saying he “told the FBI guys what they wanted to hear,” and now claims that the Corleone family is innocent of any wrongdoing, thus perjuring himself before the Senate committee. This testimony catches the committee completely off-guard and effectively derails the government’s case against Michael.

    I’ve said for months Page likely cut herself a great deal. After this tweet, the deal may be amended to provide entry to the witness protection program. Remember she outed ‘POTUS [obama]’ in one tweet. As for McCabe being a fall guy, he’s too weak to “gladly take all these slings and arrows for my fellow coup plotters and traitors”.

    So why this Wittes tweet? Seems to me that either the coup plotters and traitors are debriefing with lawfare scum after being interviewed by investigators and concluded that Page flipped, or; someone at DOJ leaked to lawfare that Page cut a deal. Could be both are true.

    I get two distinct impressions from that set of tweets. The first is an expression of friendship, suggesting that I’ll be there for you if you need me.
    The second tweet is an admonishment to stay strong and hold the course.
    “To suffer woes which Hope thinks infinite”
    Obviously she’s under pressure to give up the Coup plotters and there must be some significant stress involved…she is definitely suffering some serious Woe. Maybe to the point of giving up and laying it all out to Durham.
    “To defy Power, which seems Omnipotent”
    Possibly a direct reference to the Durham and the prosecutors looking into the case. Now she knows what it’s like to be in Flynn’s shoes.
    “Neither to change nor falter nor repent; This, like thy glory, Titan! is to be Good, great and joyous, beautiful and free; This is alone Life, Joy, Empire and Victory.”
    Yep, stay the course. Remember this is the fight you signed up for…to save the country from Trump. Keep your mouth shut and even if you go to jail, it will be a glorious victory for the cause!

    I keep going back to “I got em all”

    So what technique or method would one use to get them all??

    IMO it is the exact same technique or method they used on PT – NSA Queries & FISA Warrants and the ole 2 Hop Rule.

    Now if so, overlay the recent published report of 3.1M NSA queries in 2017 alone. 2017 is all under PT time so there is a good chance many of these 3.1M quietest were done by the good guys IMO.

    And If PT:

    1) was made aware in Nov 2016 by Adm. Rodgers to the point he immediately moves his team

    2) then the whole Green Room bug and remodel incident

    3) then the known FISA warrants on Carter Page and thus PT staff

    4) then we know Rudy has been looking into Ukraine since 2018 I believe.

    I add this all together and it says PT knew from day one and PT used the same surveillance on them that they used on him.

    Their own communications are the best way to connect the dots that link all the players and ultimately leads to the heads of the snake IMO. Surveillance casts the biggest net.

    On a side note, I think the reason for the lengthy delay in exposing it all is the information on Ukraine came late and was just too juicy to not pause and include it as it allowed the net to catch a few more.

    So,IMO THIS ^ is how you “Get them all!”

      Trump can not use FISA on the conspiracy, legally, any more than the conspiracy could us it against Trump. legally. FISA is constricted to surveillance of foreign actors, which is why the conspiracy had to cast Carter Page as a foreign agent. So, that is off the table. The FISA 702 requests fall under the same constrains, being legally used ONLY against foreign interests, not US citizens. So, the 2017 702 requests were most like done by embeds from the deep state, not white hats from the Trump administration, if they targeted US citizens.

    The DOJ has to fish or cut bait on McCabe by 11/15. McCabe was a major player, in the Get Trump operations, on the FBI side. If Barr does not indict, on some charge, he ;loses leverage. However, if he does indict, on the leaking/lying charge, Page is most likely to be the one to corroborate that, as she does not seem to adhere to the Code of Omerta. This might well be an attempt to provide cover for her. if this proves to be the case.

    Remember, Page was joined at the hip to Strzok, who was the communications cut-out and gopher for the conspiracy. She has first and second hand knowledge of almost all of the second part of the Get Trump insurance policy, the DOJ/FBI operations. She is the potential “John Dean” of this whole mess. It is interesting to see that the focus of the Barr DOJ is not the in-house DOJ/FBI conspiracy, which has plenty of low-hangiing fruit which will almost certainly roll over on the other people involved, but the IC/CIA predicate operation, which is much less likely to produce any criminal charges against any individuals.

    My opinion, for what it is worth, is that McCabe will be charged with a very minor violation of law, “allowed” to plead guilty to that charge and placed on probation. And, that will be the end of it, for him. I can’t stress enough that, since the Mueller SC investigation was terminated and the House began Impeachmentgate, that the chances of the extent of the illegal activities of the last administration will be brought to light has increased exponentially. If this all becomes public, a significant portion of the populous will demand criminal prosecutions. This places the Establishment in a precarious position. As the corruption was so widespread and it is unlikely that the people at the top will take the hit for the “team”, this could cause a government toppling event, if no criminal prosecutions occur. And, if they do occur, there is a good chance that it could trigger a French Revolution style popular reaction. This is still a CYA operation on Barr’s part.

    Wittes likes Lisa Page personally and respects what she did to try to take out Candidate/President Trump. He feels sorry for her because he knows that she faces difficult times in the near future with Durham and Barr bearing down on her. She faces significant jail time, she is under tremendous stress. With his tweet, Wittes is encouraging her, sympathizing with her, telling her to buck up – that she did the right thing.
