Dirty Business – ICIG Atkinson Receives Ethics Complaint Against CIA ‘Whistleblower’, Goes to Schiff Basement for Talks…

ICIG Michael Atkinson is the link that connects Spygate to the Schiff Impeachment Effort

Chad Pergram noted that Intelligence Community Inspector General (IGIC) Michael Atkinson was spotted today going into HPSCI Chairman Schiffs’ basement bunker for discussions with the impeachment inquisitors.

This is interesting because it was reported today that ICIG Atkinson has now received an ethics complaint about a GoFundMe account set up by the CIA ‘whistleblower’ attorney, Mark S. Zaid, to finance the ongoing efforts of CIA operative Eric Ciaramella.

The dirty dealing is getting thick.  Attorney Mark Zaid has claimed to be working pro-bono for his CIA client.  Meanwhile Adam Schiff is threatening anyone and everyone about keeping the CIA client hidden and anonymous; and the media is all-in with efforts to support the protection.  A narrative created by a CIA operative favorable to the coup.

So what exactly is this current $228,000 for? (goal $300k) And who is this group “Values United” who is organizing it?  That’s where the letter to ICIG Atkinson comes in:


It appears “Values United” is a laundry operation, established in coordination with lawyer Zaid, to fund the coup against President Trump.  However, the issues start to take on significance when we overlay the background of ICIG Michael Atkinson.

Keep in mind ICIG Atkinson has dirty hands here.  Within the ongoing OIG FISA investigation by Michael Horowitz and John Durham, Atkinson has a conflict of interest that has not yet been disclosed and could very likely be influencing his decision-making.

The CIA ‘whistle-blower’ Eric Ciaramella had no first-hand knowledge; everything within his originating complaint was based on hearsay. The CIA operative never informed the ICIG about prior contact and coordination with the House Intelligence Committee (Adam Schiff). The CIA operative never disclosed congressional contact on the complaint form; and the complaint forms were changed specifically to accommodate this CIA operative.

ICIG Michael Atkinson never reviewed the Trump-Zelenskyy call transcript and facilitated the complaint processing despite numerous flaws.  Additionally Atkinson ignored legal guidance from both the director of national intelligence (DNI) and the Department of Justice Office of Legal Counsel that highlighted Atkinson’s poor decision-making.

This makes the activity of ICIG Atkinson very questionable.  What exactly is his purpose within this enterprise?  Well… given the nature of Atkinson’s background, it appears his prior work in 2016, during his tenure as the lead legal counsel for the DOJ-NSD, likely played a role in his decision.

The center of the 2016 Lawfare Alliance election influence was/is the Department of Justice National Security Division, DOJ-NSD. It was the DOJ-NSD running the Main Justice side of the 2016 operations to support Operation Crossfire Hurricane and FBI agent Peter Strzok. It was also the DOJ-NSD where the sketchy legal theories around FARA violations (Sec. 901) originated.

Michael K Atkinson was previously the Senior Counsel to the Assistant Attorney General of the National Security Division of the Department of Justice (DOJ-NSD) in 2016. That makes Atkinson senior legal counsel to John Carlin and Mary McCord who were the former heads of the DOJ-NSD in 2016 when the stop Trump operation was underway.

Michael Atkinson was the lawyer for the same DOJ-NSD players who: (1) lied to the FISA court (Judge Rosemary Collyer) about the 80% non compliant NSA database abuse using FBI contractors; (2) filed the FISA application against Carter Page; and (3) used FARA violations as tools for political surveillance and political targeting.

Yes, that means Michael Atkinson was Senior Counsel for the DOJ-NSD, at the very epicenter of the political weaponization and FISA abuse.

If the DOJ-NSD exploitation of the NSA database, and/or DOJ-NSD FISA abuse, and/or DOJ-NSD FARA corruption were ever to reach sunlight, current ICIG Atkinson -as the lawyer for the process- would be under a lot of scrutiny for his involvement.

Yes, that gives current ICIG Michael Atkinson a strong and corrupt motive to participate with the Pelosi-Schiff/Lawfare impeachment objective.  Sketchy!

It now looks like the Lawfare network constructed the ‘whistle-blower’ complaint aka a Schiff Dossier, and handed it to allied CIA operative Eric Ciaramella to file as a formal IC complaint.  This process is almost identical to the Fusion-GPS/Lawfare network handing the Steele Dossier to the FBI to use as the evidence for the 2016/2017 Russia conspiracy.

This series of events is exactly what former CIA Analyst Fred Fleiz said. Fleitz has extensive knowledge of the whistleblower process. Fleitz said last week the Ukraine call whistle-blower is likely driven by political motives, and his sources indicate he had help from Congress members while writing it.

“I can promise you, because we are not going to let him go; [Atkinson] is going to tell he truth about what happened”…

      Well, I can not completely agree. President Trump holds all of the cards. You see we know that the target of the Michael Horowitz report is (FISA). All of these characters are involved in FISA corruption. 2016 Gang-Of-Eight members (Schiff and Pelosi ) hiding evidence from the FISA court and Michael Horowitz the lawyer for those filing the FISA documents in the DOJ-NSD (As reference above by Sundance).

      This CIA operation is due to crack open like a bad egg.

      The complaint is flawed on its face. A whistleblower cannot, by law, be anonymous to the IG. Also, the whistleblower must, by law, be a member of the IC or a contractor to the IC. This whistleblower might satisfy that test, but anonymity makes it impossible to tell.

    Is there any doubt that the delay in the Horrowitz report is intentional to allow the plotters to finish their coup? If it had come out a month ago like it should have, none of this would be going on and there would be a completely different narrative.

    Someone is holding it up to protect the swamp. Who? It is Wray, Horrowitz himself, Barr or someone else? Who ever it is, Trump needs to light a fire under their ass. Now!

    Ciaramella… Not a whistleblower?


    • cboldt says:

      The POTUS is not subject to any whistleblower oversight. By law, all whistleblowers report malfeasance, waste, etc. in their department. Trump is not in their department.
      Atkinson knows this, knew it when he advanced the complaint. Playing fast and loose with basic logic. It’s a characteristic of government bureaucrats.

    There is much more to the “Values United” dBa “Whistleblower Aid” and attorney Mark Zaid.

    Larry Johnson has already researched “Values United” dBa “Whistleblowers Aid” over at Col Lang’s. “Values United” dBa “Whistleblowers Aid” appears to be a bona fide charity fraud.

    “Is Whistleblower Aid a Charity Fraud? by Larry C Johnson”

    It is worth noting that one of the attorneys with “Whistleblower Aid” is former Intelligence Community Inspector General Charles McCullough III, who, on 27 Nov 2017, was on Fox News expressing concern that the Clinton campaign planned to fire him over the Clinton email probe –

    “‘Blowback’: Clinton campaign planned to fire me over email probe, Obama intel watchdog says”

    Mark Zaid has been “representing” real whistleblowers for quite a while longer, three of whom are Lt Col (Ret) Tony Shaffer, Jeffrey Sterling, and Kevin Shipp. All three men had the same outcome – Mark Zaid did absolutely nothing to help his clients.

    Lt Col (Ret) Tony Shaffer paid Zaid for ten years. When exculpatory evidence finally surfaced for Shaffer – the IG lied in Shaffer’s case – Zaid promptly quit.
    Lt Col (Ret) Shaffer described his experience to Larry O’Conner on 7 Nov 2019.

    Kevin Shipp ended up firing Zaid after Zaid was, apparently, on the CIA’s side (Shipp interview with Jason Goodman, youtube).
    Jeffrey Sterling ended up in jail.

    Mark Zaid appears to have been “representing” real whistleblowers in order to report their actions to the CIA.

    —>>> Notice how many IGs are involved.
    Zaid now working with ICIG Atkinson to take down Pres Trump by working with the CIA?
    Oh heck ya.

    Why aren’t more Republicans doing anonymous whistle blower complaints with “hearsay” evidence until they collapse the system? The Cloward Piven strategy against the deep state. It is ridiculous to use hearsay to start investigations.

    I heard Schiff was compromised by Ukranians . I heard his family was making money from corruption, etc.

      By law, whistleblowers come from inside the govenment. I doubt 10% of that cohort is willing to support Trump, and more than half would willingly sabotage the Trump agenda.
      Basically, the deep state is not going to rat itself out.

      One of his big donors is a Ukrainian arms dealer. He manufactures the Ukrainian version of AR-5s (so much for Schiff for brains on banning guns), tanks and other stuff. Pelosi is also tied to this Ukrainian. He’s a big contributor to Schiff for brains and Pelosi as well. And he’s been awarded lucrative U.S. government contracts.

      See: https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-10-20/adam-shifty-schiff-involved-illegal-sodomite-drug-den-exposed

      and post this where you blog. Schiff needs to go down hard. He has at least 3 ethics complaints filed against him in the House Ethics Committee. He should be in jail for murder.

    “Intelligence Community Inspector General (IGIC) Michael Atkinson was spotted today going into HPSCI Chairman Schiffs’ basement bunker”

    This makes me wonder if Atkinson’s Boss is aware of his visits to Schiffs playpen. Why would he go to Schiff instead of his boss?

      Yes, I guess he had to let Schiff tell him how to handle the complaint. So the complaint’s going nowhere. The lawyer for this new whistleblower was on Hannity tonight, saying he filed it Friday and has heard nothing from Atkinson.

    He’s at the House because this is one he cannot cover up. These are actual, criminal, violations. I bet he got guidance from the DNI and DOJ that the complaint has merit. They need to figure out how to get their stories straight because this is the kind of thing that it would be absolutely WORTH a House Ethics Investigation to not only name the fake whistleblower in the hearings tomorrow, but to shove it down Adam Schiff’s throat that his “whistleblower” Eric Ciaramella is cashing in on his fame. If I was one of those GOP congressmen, I think my question directed at the Chair would be, “How much is your cut, Mr. Schiff?”

    Ironically, John Tye has promoted himself as an opponent of mass data collection and the vast expansion of its use against US citizens after 9-11. Abuse of “12333” collection was the subject of his own whistleblower complaint at the State Dept. Whistleblower Aid reportedly is a trade name of “Values United”. Let’s hope the IRS extinguishes these fake charities and prosecutes the frauds.

    From nationandstate.com: My comments are in brackets.[ ]
    Attorney Mark Zaid is acting as co-counsel for the whistleblower. Zaid and Bakaj are both involved with Whistleblower Aid [Zaid co-founded Whistleblower Aid so “involved with” understates the relationship], a nonpartisan legal nonprofit launched in 2017 to help federal employees coming forward with information about wrongdoing navigate legal avenues.
    John Tye, a former government whistleblower at the U.S. Department of State, cofounded Whistleblower Aid and is listed as its governor in D.C. incorporation papers. Values United lists the same address and suite number as Compass Rose, Bakaj’s law firm where Zaid is now listed as an attorney. Tye previously worked at the left-wing Southern Poverty Law Center, known for its “hate group” designations, and Avaaz, a liberal organization that pushes global activism on climate change.
    In 2016, an unemployed John Tye donated $2,700 to Hillary for America, Hillary Clinton’s former presidential campaign committee, filings show. The address marked on the Clinton donation matches that of a now-defunct limited liability company called Napier Network. Napier is Tye’s middle name.

    The irony is just too sweet that it might be Charmarella and Zaid the ones put in cuffs. Each illegal donaton will be a separate count criminal act. It will prove pattern and practice and INTENT.

      @Joemama. That will happen if the few actual republicans fighting for Trump manage to turn the tide of this sham “investigation”.

      Schiff, et al still believe they have a lock on the “impeach Trump” coup. Once that crumbles…the mass shootings will resume.

    A Go-Fund-Me account being used to pay off Schiff’s chosen “whistleblower” Eric Ciaramella…just like the Go-Fund-Me account that was used to pay off the left’s chosen Kavanaugh-killer, Blasey-Ford.

    They’re all hired to play a role, then paid off with questionable “donations”, while the left steamrolls Trump, Horowitz drags his feet, Killary and Biden crimes are ignored, McConnell shrugs and we get the middle finger.

    Anybody that doesn’t believe that Obama, et al are still running this government…hasn’t been paying attention.
