AP Report: Chris Wray FBI Wanted to Interview Whistleblower Last Month – Interview Never Happened…

Attorney General Bill Barr has vociferous praise for FBI Director Christopher Wray and his team at the premier investigative agency in the world.  The FBI previously dispatched seven agents, three snipers, a full SWAT unit, two MRAP armored vehicles and an amphibious assault unit for a 5:00am raid on the home of Roger Stone.

Meanwhile the AP is reporting today how the FBI politely requested an interview through CIA agent/whistle-blower Eric Ciaramella’s lawyers last month, and the interview never happened:

WASHINGTON (AP) — The FBI last month requested an interview with the whistleblower whose complaint fueled the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump and Ukraine, a person familiar with the situation said Wednesday.

An agent from the FBI’s Washington field office reached out to the whistleblower’s lawyers last month to seek an interview about the substance of the complaint, according to this person, who insisted on anonymity to discuss the request with The Associated Press.

The person said it was clear from the FBI that the whistleblower was not regarded as the target of any investigation but rather a potential witness. It was not immediately clear what specifically the FBI might be looking into. The requested interview has not taken place.  (read more)

Paul Manafort received a no-knock FBI raid at 2:00am for unregistered lobbying.  The law offices of Michael Cohen were raided for Taxi medallion abuse.  Roger Stone got the SWAT treatment for bragging to congress…. and the Deep State CIA “whistleblower” gets a politely worded letter that can be ignored.

Imagine that?

They’re laughing at us now…

    Would the FBI “ask” to interview any of us?
    Like they asked for DNC Server?
    They asked for Hillary Server?
    The only possible crime the whistleblower has brought forward is the “leaker” who allegedly told someone, who told someone who provided to hearsay whistleblower.

          This week has been eyeopening into the vast bureaucracy of the dept of state. Never have I seen so many smug, arrogant sycophants to their interagency decisions on foreign policy. A foreign policy I might add, that seems to be a dismal failure in so many places.

          Their loyalty seems to be to their jobs and to maintain their power. I was struck by all the testimony on Ukraine. It was all about what was best for that country. Who do they work for? What are they protecting there?

        I hope he will be able to get rid of some of the really bad people and put others on notice the type of behavior we have seen won’t be tolerated. I don’t expect the high profile players to face consequences but hopefully, they will be exposed officially for what they are.

    Barr is an elitist. Views The People as “the little people”, not The People of the Constitution. In a man’s world where freedom and liberty were the most important things to society, Barr would’ve already been removed, by force if necessary, by armed men ready to use those arms to prevent tyranny from raising it’s ugly head, let alone subduing the entirety of the nation….as has now happened.

    Some eagerly await the day when men of such fortitude and beliefs once again answer the call to defend liberty and freedom, and use the God given and Constitutionally guaranteed tools to start and finish the job.

        Mate,

        10,000 angry, armed Americans on the White House lawn would get Congress’ attention immediately. It’s getting those 10,000 angry, armed Americans there that’s the problem.

        After the call went ’round the country for the militia to assemble and descend on DC, every governor in every state would call the National Guard to stop all out of state license plate cars. State and local police would do the same. DC would have a 10 mile deep defensive cordon. And almost every guardsman and cop would shoot to kill.

        The militia would have to shoot their way through every roadblock. And that would grab – and hold – the tyrant’s attentions far more forcefully than 10,000 Americans peacefully protesting in DC; causing each and every one of the SOBs to wonder and worry, “What if they’re waiting for me at home?”

Our government is so large, arrogant and very powerful and our Constitution may suggest a possible and necessary way to overthrow a tyrannical government but not a good way back to our origins which might not work to our benefit in the World as it is today. If you feel like we are very divided right now, just wait until we start an armed insurrection and civil war that will leave our Country, as a hole, very weak and susceptible to an even worse structure and classes than we have ever had. Our government got out of whack, in no small way by our own reticence to truly engaging in the political process to keep our Country the way “we” want it to be and Nature being nature, always fills the vacuum or void with whatever schft is a available. So either we try to alter the direction our Country takes by re-engaging politically or we fall into an unknown and violent oblivion with no light at the end of that tunnel.

      Sorry, the already in-place turn-key police state described by Snowden would nip that in the bud if it ever even managed to get started; any participants would be portrayed as nut cases and most of the sheeple would believe that.

      Also consider my logical, I think, estimate that the Swamp/Deep State consists of every pol, bureaucrat, and lobbyist at all levels of government who would not give up their job or influence even if it was in the best interests of the country.

        So, go down without a fight? Just let them take it all away? Turn America into the Muslim infested slums of Paris, London, Berlin, Sweden? Disregard the Declaration “….it is their right, their duty to throw off that government…”?

        (1) is all the more reason for fierce, overwhelming initial contact. They’ll be so astonished and stunned at ferocity and loss of life they’ll retreat. The Waco video confirms their immediate loss of momentum and nerve when they start taking casualties. They ask for time to retreat, retrieve their dead. What army asks for a time out!? The more of these kinds of engagements, hard hitting to even taking out the field medics, the more they’ll be unmotivated.

        (2) It was the lone man who jumped the wall at Omaha and charged into the fray that motivated the men huddling under the wall to join him. It was 18 inexperienced US Army troops under 20 year old 1st Lt. Lyle Brock Jr that held up 500 German troops on the first day of the Battle of The Bulge.* It was three guys who used an old Jap water pipe that first raised the flag on Iwo, and were cheered by thousands of GI’s below. It was the guys who rode alone, the night of April 18-19 that warned the British were coming to take the powder and cannon at Lexington and Concord.

        Of course, if you go solo, without backup, you’ll be like Lavoy Finicum. Right beliefs but he had no ‘tribe’ that shared his zeal and deep level of commitment to fight the tyrants. American men must organize and militarize. We can not allow any more free Waco’s or Ruby Ridge’s. And we darned sure can’t allow the end of a free America because everyone was afraid of dying if they tried to stop it.

          Like most outcomes in our individual lives, we are why we are the way we are. So trying to change 330 million “we”s external to ourselves is one, impossible and two, hugely fascist. We morally have only ourselves to change and others might not want “our” change.

            I for one don’t want the changes that were foisted on my country, my culture, and myself by the communists now in charge. And the document that started this country tells me, nay, instructs me, to throw off that change.

            The founders needed no written permission to keep and bear the arms they used to throw off their masters. Nor do I, you, or we need such permission; although the document the first thrower-offers composed as our Constitution enumerated that right as (1) God given and (2) inalienable. We have the moral authority. And the tools. And the government’s own acknowledgement of both.

            The left is savagely using the legal system, the injustice system, to twist and pervert the law in order to veil their throwing over as legitimate. We know it’s not legitimate, it’s illegitimate and sanctioned by immoral, leftist judges.

            Let’s use our moral authority found in the documents the founders left us and in the laws of freedom inscribed in our hearts, and let’s use the tools the founders acknowledged in 2A to turn back the usurpers and turn our country back into what the founders left us.

            “….expecting a better outcome is as insane as what the Liberal inmates can conjure up.’

            The liberal outcome is already visible, and it’s final result is far more frightening than the result of throwing over and out their totalitarian utopia. What’s insane is not doing anything to stop your own enslavery.

      Nah, he’s just a company man who can give really great speeches at the Federalist Society:

      Sundance (I think): “What functional value was there to give AG Bill Barr declassification authority, if he is going to participate in allowing FBI officials to hide material that shouldn’t even be classified in the first place? If this in-our-face position doesn’t scream of a cover-up, then nothing does.”

      William P. Barr

      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Barr

      “While attending graduate school and law school, Barr worked for the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) from 1971 to 1977. He was first hired as a summer intern for two years. During his law school years he was an analyst in the (CIA) Intelligence Directorate division from 1973 to 1975, and then transitioning to an assistant in the (CIA) Office of Legislative Counsel and ‘agency liaison’ to Congress from 1975-1977.” [I won’t bother to post yet again the link to an image of his memo from the CIA Office of Legislative Counsel recommending that CIA document destruction should resume despite the order to stop same from the Church Committee investigating COINTELPRO – Z]

      “He wrote an advisory opinion justifying the U.S. invasion of Panama and arrest of Manuel Noriega.” [occurring less than one year after former CIA director GHW Bush took office – perhaps it should have been called “Operation Shut Up Manuel about that CIA Iran-Contra Stuff” – Z]

      “He wrote legal justifications for the practice of rendition, so that the FBI could enter onto foreign soil without the consent of the host government to apprehend fugitives wanted by the United States government for terrorism or drug-trafficking.” [Meh, I actually liked that. Still, it was bending the rules. – Z]

      “On December 24, 1992, during his final month in office, Bush, on the advice of Barr, pardoned Weinberger, along with five other administration officials who had been found guilty on charges relating to the Iran–Contra affair. Barr was consulted extensively regarding the pardons, and especially advocated for pardoning Weinberger.”

      “Walsh complained about the move insinuating that Bush on Barr’s advice had used the pardons to avoid testifying and stating that: “The Iran-contra cover-up, which has continued for more than six years, has now been completed.” In 2003, he wrote an account of the investigation in his book, Firewall: The Iran-Contra Conspiracy and Cover-Up.”

      “Because of this and Barr’s unwillingness to appoint an independent counsel to look into a second scandal known as Iraq-gate, New York Times writer William Safire began to refer to Barr as ‘Coverup-General Barr.’ Barr, however, responded that he believed Bush had made the right decision regarding that and he felt people in the case had been treated unfairly.”

To them they can be virtuous in ways we can’t understand because we are not them. Just think of the atrocities committed by soldiers of all militaries in history including our own Revolutionary and Civil Wars, WW1, WW2, Korea, Viet Nam, and the Middle East including Afghanistan, and yet we are still here made possible in no small way by these atrocities committed throughout our history and even before America was. Being sanctimonious doesn’t change how we got here. I can only judge what I do and Barr seems at peace with what he has done and has done more for us, than I or you.

          These are the lo-fo voters (and they’re not all Democrats). Sundance has done an outstanding job educating us on the “power” and tentacles of the Deep State. The Founding Fathers never imagined a bureaucratic government controlled by career politicians. It is this investment of power that has made corruption grow like metastatic cancer. Couple that with a country that has become increasingly Me the People rather than We the People and that is a recipe for today’s toxic environment. Think JFK, Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country. Enter the Great Society and begin the downfall of the American family and American values. Who could have imagined the country could have strayed so far in 60 years? Most of the lawyers who served in Congress then were constitutionalists not radical transformers. Maybe if we had had access to a Sundance 50 years ago, we would not be in the shape we’re in today. Granted, we wouldn’t have had the internet to access him, but we surely could have benefitted from his wisdom! Thanks Sundance!!

And if Strzok can fully spell “Evanina”, why would he not spell “Ciaramella” or “Eric”? Also, Willian Evanina worked for the NCSC which is part of the ODNI and handles counterintelligence. Ciaramella was working for the CIA at that time.

          “They” are tightening the circle around President Trump to achieve total isolation.

          “They” are now publicly questioning every, single, decision he makes, regardless of the Executive Powers enshrined in the Constitution. Remember: “by any means necessary”.

          What do we think they would do if he were to fire all the brass of the “Obama army”? This is not to suggest that PDJT should shy away from the execution of any decision of this nature. Au contraire! But, CIC Authority or not, “they” will stage another for-show event in order to publicly distort his motives, his agenda, and to question his sanity.

          “They”, this SES cartel, in concert, have worked assiduously to build an environment where every decision PDJT makes is now subject to challenge, regardless of the Constitutional requirement of Separation of Powers. They trot out their “witnesses” to give them cover for questioning every move the POTUS makes. Each time they repeat this strategy, they push more deeply Into the zone of the President’s authority.

          This is exactly like a football game and they are pulling out all the stops to keep the ball, stay on offense, and keep him – and us – on defense. I believe that they are going to try another go-around with the 25th Amendment during high campaign season if the current kangaroo court strategy does not produce the results they are determined to achieve.

          It does not matter to them that the Constitution assigns full military authority to the CIC. The SES Cartel, much like the narco-terrorists, does not ask permission to break the Law. They act first and generate the blah-blah “rationale” after the fact.

          If they can isolate the POTUS with cooperation of key members in the Executive Branch, control the military through the betrayals of snakes like that POS Lt. Col. Doughboy, and worse, betrayals by the military senior level commanders who refuse to enforce military protocols against traitors who disobey the CIC, then the SES Cartel & Co., will move to remove him.

          I do not believe that we, the Constitutional loyalists, will “go quietly into the good night”, but we are approaching the crossroads.

          The U.S. Attorney General has “talked the talk” on more than one occasion in recent weeks. But talk is cheap; it takes money to buy whiskey. Which side are you on, Mr. Barr, the side of the Deep State Coup d’ État, or the side of the United States Constitutional Republic?

    Yes, they are laughing at us now. This is clearly a planted story signifying nothing.

    The good news is that FBI/DoJ is trapped in their previous involvement with the Muh Russia conspiracy, as their dozens of fired/resigned employees and criminal referrals clearly indicates. The fact that they’re preemptively creating distance from the new Muh Ukraine conspiracy is a clear sign that they’re scared. That’s good. This Trump Ukraine Op has fragmented Deep State enough to have forced this preemptive distancing initiative to surface early on. The rats are scrambling now. Fragment them, and they cannot leverage each other, and you can defeat them in detail.

    This Trump Op has forced Deep State to operate at the Speed of Trump, which is well beyond their OODA loop capabilities. He shaped the battlefield long before they took the field, long before he made the phone call, long before many of these Swamp stooges ever heard of Ukraine most likely (You can tell this by their shrieking about Rudy’s years long investigatory work, and the UK spooks being flabbergasted that Trump’s “undercutting” his own intelligence agencies, both signs he’s been at this for a while in the background) . You can identify their lack of preparation by how taxed and incompetent the Schiff show is. They weren’t ready for the transcript. Their mad scramble to prep friendly witnesses down in the bunker cannot work. The “whistleblower” is obviously a massive toxicity to them. Most of all, the Deep State-friendly media cannot spew their talking points in the face of clear testimony and documents simply brought to the Public by a true media master, Donald Trump.

    Trump timed this Op to align with the Congressional calendar and the November 2020 election. He knew Deep State would respond instantly to his Op, and all the tools they’d use. He knew they’d want to finish this all before Christmas, to begin January 2020 in incumbent protection mode as the Swamp always does. Thus, the July phone call was precisely timed to put them into a timeline of his choosing. He is nimble and strategically prepared. They are sclerotic and strategically and tactically encumbered. A compressed timeline helps him and hurts his enemies.

    They are fighting a battle on his terms, which can only strengthen him. It’s the perfect plan.

    Even better, the execrable McConnell’s hands are completely tied. A long, strung out process was how he envisioned destroying Trump, with him blameless while delivering the coup de grace, but that has been denied.

    Trump chose the timing of the Op to have the Swamp and Deep State do what they hungered to do, and is using their hunger to strengthen himself. They walked right into it, just as he envisioned. The two words “Biden” and “Crowdstrike” kicked it off, and got them walking. Nothing happens by chance with this guy Trump, he sees the entire model in 3D, long before others know a model even exists.

    Assuming this story is true, and assuming I understand Sundance’s take on this, I disagree with it. Here’s why.

    From the article:

    “The person said it was clear from the FBI that the whistleblower was not regarded as the target of any investigation but rather a potential witness. It was not immediately clear what specifically the FBI might be looking into. The requested interview has not taken place. ”

    Wouldn’t the fact that the interview didn’t happen be a GOOD sign?

    It sounds to me like somebody in the FBI was trying to get involved and potentially trying to legitimize the “whistleblower”, his complaint, etc….

    Then it seems somebody shut that down. So, good news to me.

    To be honest, I feel like theres been a negative tone from Sundance’s posts lately, and I understand why. But its not helpful. We need to keep morale up.

    I watched a video of Rich Higgins yesterday, who was fired by McMaster from the Security Council in 2017 after his memo about the threats facing America. Globalists, the Deep State, Islamists etc….

    https://dailycaller.com/2017/09/23/heres-why-nsc-staffer-rich-higgins-says-he-was-fired-from-the-trump-administration-video/

    In the video, he was talking about being “purged” by McMaster and how that can be discouraging to all of us. But he said “this is a battle, and its going to be a long one”. Video from September 2017.

    “He also calls on Trump supporters to have “strategic patience” with Trump, who came in as a classic counter-revolutionary. It’s going to be a long fight, Higgins says, but he and others plan to continue it on the outside. Losses will be inevitable because of some internal weak links and other challenges, but he tells Trump supporters to “soldier up.”

    Soldier up, people. I’m telling myself this, too.

    Spread this far and wide:

    LTC (Retired) Jim Hickman states:

    I know LTC Alex Vindman from a Combined US-Russian exercise called Atlas Vision 12 in Grafenwoher, GE. He worked w/the Russian Embassy & I was assigned to the JMTC Joint Multinational Training Command), w/in USAREUR (US Army Europe). He worked coordination w/the Russian 15th Peacekeeping Brigade, & I was in charge of all Simulations planning, as well as assisting the USAREUR Lead Planner as the Senior Military Planner.

    The following account of LTC Vindman’s words & actions are completely accurate to the best of my recollection & have been corroborated by others. We interacted on several different occasions throughout the planning cycle, but it was during the actual execution of the exercise, that we had an issue relevant to his recent testimony.

    As stated earlier, Atlas Vision 12 was conducted at JMTC in the VBS2 (Virtual Battle Simulations 2) Classrooms for Simulation. Vindman, who was a Major at the time, was sitting in one of the classrooms talking to the US & Russian Soldiers, as well as the young Officers & GS Employees about America, Russia, & Obama. He was apologetic of American culture, laughed about Americans not being educated or worldly, & really talked up Obama & globalism to the point of uncomfortable. He would speak w/the Russian Soldiers & laugh as if at the expense of the US personnel. It was so uncomfortable & unprofessional, one of the GS employees came & told me everything above.

    I walked over & sat w/in earshot of Vindman, & sure enough, all was confirmed. One comment truly struck me as odd, & it was w/respect to American’s falsely thinking they’re exceptional, when he said, “He [Obama] is working on that now.” And he said it w/a snide ‘I know a secret’ look on his face. I honestly don’t know what it meant, it just sounded like an odd thing to say. Regardless, after hearing him bash America a few times in front of subordinates, Russians, & GS Employees, as well as, hearing an earful about globalization, Obama’s plan, etc. I’d had enough. I tapped him on the shoulder & asked him to step outside. At that point I verbally reprimanded him for his actions, & I’ll leave it at that, so as not to be unprofessional myself.

    The bottom-line is LTC Vindman was a partisan Democrat at least as far back as 2012. So much so, junior officers & soldiers felt uncomfortable around him. This is not your professional, field-grade officer, who has the character & integrity to do the right thing. Do not let the uniform fool you…he is a political activist in uniform. I pray our nation will drop this hate, vitriol & division, & unite as our founding fathers intended!

    I need to make a slight correction on my statement, it was actually Atlas Vision 13 when the incident occurred. I was thrown off, as the next year Russia invaded Crimea. Also, I was promoted to Chief, Regional, Joint & Combined Exercises Branch, USAREUR, over many exercises.

      The Civilian Government Doesn’t Owe Deference to Military Officers
      20 Nov 2019

      https://mises.org/power-market/civilian-government-doesnt-owe-deference-military-officers

      On Tuesday, Congressional impeachment hearings exposed an interesting facet of the current battle between Donald Trump and the so-called deep state: namely, that many government bureaucrats now fancy themselves as superior to the elected civilian government.

      In an exchange between Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) and Alexander Vindman, a US Army Lt. Colonel, Vindman insisted that Nunes address him by his rank.

      After being addressed as “Mr. Vindman,” Vindman retorted “Ranking Member, it’s Lt. Col. Vindman, please.”

      Throughout social media, anti-Trump forces, who have apparently now become pro-military partisans, sang Vindman’s praises, applauding him for putting Nunes in his place.

      In a properly functioning government — with a proper view of military power — however, no one would tolerate a military officer lecturing a civilian on how to address him “correctly.”

The government depends on our tax dollars to survive and would starve without the steady supply it’s life blood. It would require an employee to claim an exemption from withholding taxes AND, for small businesses to stop paying payroll taxes.

    Seems to me that the FBI didn’t realize or didn’t know who “Charlie” was until the whistleblower report and the name of the whistleblower was revealed and people started wondering if “Charlie” is a sobriquet for Eric Ciaramella. That would make sense in the context of the confidential sources issues the FBI is having, and the fact that we are never told who “Charlie” is.

    Part of me wonders if they didn’t know who Charlie was in those Strzok texts and nobody would fess up to the person’s identity because they didn’t want to give up a valuable Deep State insider asset who was having a lot of success leaking and damaging Trump from the inside. So, somebody at FBI has an “ah-ha” moment, and so Ciaramella’s lawyer gets a phone call. Not so much about the Ukraine issues, but because they’ve been investigating NSC leaks and “Charlie” seems to have played an important anonymous role.

    They probably have marching orders to just drop it to avoid the perception of witness intimidation which Democrats would spin as being ordered by Trump. They’ll have a lot more flexibility, to borrow Obama’s phrase, once the FISA report is out and we start getting more from Durham.

    Just exactly how the Clinton Machine was operating back in the 1980s and 1990s: watch this very frightening documentary, many of those participating in it were killed — THE CLINTON CHRONICLES. Copies of it were hand-delivered to EVERY member of Congress in 1992.

    And what happened? the same evil, corrupt NOTHING that is happening now. Worst of all is someone like Barr who KNOWS how destructive these wicked people are — yet lets them walk free.

      They used the same bullshit process: start an “investigation,” drag it out for months/years, and NEVER indict any of the evildoers. Somehow …. nothing ever happens.

      It’s not a Swamp, it’s the SEWER: the Maxima Cloaca, to be precise.
