IG Report – Continued, Specific, FISA Date Redactions…

Amid the predictive discussions by those who have followed the three-year background of the potential DOJ & FBI FISA issues, there was one very specific aspect CTH was looking for:  Would the IG report redact the dates of the Carter Page FISA application and renewals?

We got that answer today, and that answer, unfortunately, is yes:

Ask yourself what is the national security value in hiding those dates?  Why does the DOJ need to hide them?   Unfortunately the answer highlights an institutional decision.

On its face the dates seem like an overly granular question; perhaps even a small detail that few would notice.  However, for CTH readers that little detail exposes so much.

In 2018 Main Justice made a very specific decision, a very specific lie, that once told would forever set them on a path – from which there is no return.  It was during a time between July and December 2018 that CTH realized the DOJ had handcuffed themselves to a cover story; and that cover story foretold future conduct.

When Senate Intelligence Committee Vice-Chairman Mark Warner requested a copy of the FISA application back in early spring 2017, the Jeff Sessions’ DOJ produced a copy for review, date stamped by the FISC on March 17th, 2017.  That copy was seeded with a false date of origination.  The reason for the false date was the FBI leak taskforce initiated by Sessions.  The false date was a leak trap.

Investigators provided the FISA application to SSCI Vice-Chairman Warner with a false date and then they looked to see if media reports of that FISA application would surface.  If reports started surfacing, any report that used the false date would be attributable to the application given to the SSCI.  The source of the leak would be identified.

That’s exactly what happened.

♦ On March 17th, 2017, the Senate Intelligence Committee took custody of the FISA application used against Carter Page.   We know the FISA court delivered the read and return Top-Secret Classified application due to the clerk stamp of March 17, 2017.

(Page FISA Application, Link)

The FISA application (original and first renewal) was delivered to Senate Security Director James Wolfe.  Senator Mark Warner entered the basement SCIF shortly after 4:00pm on March 17, 2017, the day it was delivered (texts between Warner and Waldman):

Now, when SSCI Security Officer James Wolfe was indicted (unsealed June ’18), we could see the importance of the March 17th date again:

(Wolfe Indictment Link)

We could tell from the description within the Wolfe indictment FBI investigators are describing the FISA application.  Additionally Wolfe exchanged 82 text messages with his reporter/girlfriend Ali Watkins.  The FISA application is 83 pages with one blank page.

The logical conclusion was that Wolfe text Ali Watkins 82 pictures of the application.

FBI Investigators applied for, and received a search warrant for the phone records of journalist Ali Watkins through November 2017.  Ms. Watkins was notified in February 2018, three months after Wolfe was questioned by FBI investigators in December 2017.

However, despite the overwhelming (public) circumstantial evidence that Wolfe leaked the FISA application, he was never charged with leaking classified information.  Wolfe was only charged with lying three times to federal authorities, and he pled down to one count of lying to the FBI.

CTH made the case in mid 2018 that someone at the DOJ had influenced a decision not to charge Wolfe with the leaking of the FISA application; despite the FBI and DOJ having direct evidence of Wolfe leaking classified information.

The logical reason for the Rosenstein DOJ not to charge Wolfe with the FISA leak was because that charge would ensnare powerful Senators on the powerful committee.  Worse still, in hindsight we now see how that committee was working to aide the purposes and intents of the corrupt DOJ and FBI officials as they built their impeachment agenda.

Remember, the SSCI has intelligence oversight of the DOJ, DOJ-NSD, FBI and all associated counterintelligence operations. Additionally, when the FBI was investigating Wolfe for leaking classified documents, according to their court filings they had to inform the committee of the risk Wolfe represented.  Who did they have to inform?.. Chairman Richard Burr and Vice-Chair Mark Warner.

Think about it.  Both gang-of-eight members (Warner/Burr), who happened -as a consequence of the jaw dropping implications- to be two SSCI members who were warned by the FBI that Wolfe was compromised…. and they, along with Feinstein in 2016, were the co-conspirators who used James Wolfe.  The ramifications cannot be overstated.

Any criminal charges for leaking classified intelligence information against James Wolfe would likely result in a major scandal where the SSCI itself was outlined as participants in the weaponization of government for political intents.  Thus, the perfect alignment of interests for a dropped charge and DC cover-up.  REMEMBER:

(Source)

If it wasn’t already transparently sketchy, in an act of serendipity and self-preservation, the accused Security Director James Wolfe evidenced the schemes when he threatened to subpoena members of the SSCI as part of his defense. [See Here]

[…] Attorneys for James A. Wolfe sent letters to all 15 senators on the committee, notifying them that their testimony may be sought as part of Mr. Wolfe’s defense, according to two people familiar with the matter.

[…] Mr. Wolfe’s defense lawyers are considering calling the senators as part of the proceedings for a variety of reasons, including as potential character witnesses and to rebut some of the allegations made by the government in the criminal complaint, these people say.  (link)

Immediately after threatening to subpoena the SSCI (July 27, 2018), the DOJ (Rosenstein authorizing) cut a deal with Wolfe and dropped the charges down to a single charge of lying to investigators.  However, someone in the FBI who was doing the investigative legwork wasn’t happy with that decision.

The overwhelming circumstantial evidence that Wolfe leaked the FISA application went from a strong suspicion, to damn certain (after the plea deal) when the DOJ included a sentencing motion in mid-December 2018.

On December 15th, 2018 the DOJ filed a response to the Wolfe defense teams’ own sentencing memo (full pdf), and within the DOJ response they included an exhibit (#13) written by the FBI [redacted] special agent in charge, which specifically says: “because of the known disclosure of classified information, the FISA application”… Thereby admitting, albeit post-plea agreement, that Wolfe did indeed leak the FISA:

(link to document)

Right there, in that FBI Special Agent description is the bombshell admission that James Wolfe leaked the Carter Page FISA application to journalist Ali Watkins at Buzzfeed.

We know the special agent who wrote exhibit #13 in the December filing was Special Agent Brian Dugan, Asst. Special Agent in Charge, Washington Field Office.  The same investigator who originally signed the affidavit in the original indictment against Wolfe.

So with hindsight there was absolutely no doubt that James Wolfe leaked the 83-page Carter Page FISA application on March 17, 2017.  Period.  It’s all documented with circumstantial and direct evidence; including the admissions from the FBI agent in charge.

So, why was SSCI Security Director James Wolfe allowed to plea to a single count of lying to investigators?  Because of the ramifications of Wolfe’s leak being directed by Senator Warner.

The DOJ covered-up the fact that Wolfe leaked the classified FISA application, and from that moment forward the DOJ was forever compromised by that corrupt decision.

During the 2016 and 2017 effort to weaponize the institutions of government against the outside candidacy of Donald Trump, the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (SSCI) was a participating entity. Dianne Feinstein, Richard Burr, Mark Warner, Daniel Jones, and James Wolfe were all participants of varying degrees. {Go Deep}

And it gets worse… because the corrupt small group appears to have leveraged what they knew about this DOJ coverup as recently as two months ago:

[…] The Senate intelligence committee examined the allegations about Downer, Mifsud and Halper, as part of its bipartisan investigation into the intelligence community’s assessment that Russia was responsible for attacking the 2016 election, and found nothing to substantiate any wrongdoing, a committee aide said. (read full article)

Facing a great deal of public pressure, when the DOJ released a public version of the Carter Page FISA application (July 21, 2018) they had to use the same copy sent to the SSCI on March 17th, 2017, or their leak trap would be exposed; and subsequently the Wolfe non-prosecution would be at risk of exposure.  The DOJ had to redact the dates because the leak trap FISA (dates) doesn’t match the original FISA application.

Once the DOJ made the March 17th, 2017, FISC copy the public copy they had to keep the dates redacted. Hence any further release of the FISA court needs to maintain that same date redacted standard.

Once the DOJ allowed James Wolfe to get away with leaking a highly classified FISA application, they committed themselves to always covering-up the fact the DOJ allowed James Wolfe to get away with leaking a classified FISA application.

    • Krashman Von Stinkputin says:

      Why did Warner leak the FISA application?

      Short answer:
      Because Buzzfeed published the Steele Dossier in full.

      The Steele Dossier was SO ludicrous on it’s face even a hateful press WHO KNEW ABOUT IT FOR MONTHS wouldn’t touch it (with Isakoff/Corn being the notable exceptions)

      See Richard Engel give the backstory: “I wouldn’t even call them RUMORS” on the very day it was published
      https://www.msnbc.com/rachel-maddow/watch/unverified-trump-russia-blackmail-allegations-roil-us-politics-852191299993

      It only was “legitimized” by J Edgar Comey briefing PE Trump on it and that meeting being leaked to CNN (Tapper, Sciutto, Perez, Bernstein)

      Buzzfeed followed CNN by publishing the whole thing.
      (I don’t believe this was part of “The Plan”. Rather they meant to keep it hidden as long as possible–otherwise CNN would have published it THEMSELVES with their article)

      So now the Dossier is out there for ALL TO SEE in it’s GLORIOUS ABSURDITY, the MSM trying to spin it as “INTEL” from a RELIABLE BRITISH INTELLIGENCE AGENT.

      Adam Schiff himself used it as HIS PRIMARY “EVIDENCE” for his investigation and in fact in his OPENING STATEMENT in the first public hearing about “Muh Russia”
      READ ALL THE ALLEGATIONS INTO THE CONGRESSIONAL RECORD
      (The now infamous March 20 2017 HPSCI Hearing)

      LEAKING THE EXISTENCE OF THE CARTER PAGE FISA APPLICATION
      WAS TO LEGITIMIZE THE STEELE DOSSIER
      in an ASS-BACKWARDS WAY
      This way:
      1) You can only put legitimate info in an application for a FISA warrant
      2) The IC obtained a FISA warrant on Carter Page–a KEY FIGURE in the Steele Dossier
      Therefore
      3) The Steele Dossier MUST be legitimate

      This was the MSM talking points….
      Until Devin Nunes went to court to obtain the bank records of FusionGPS showing that the dossier had been paid for by HRC.

      The MSM temporarily changed the narrative to the Steele Dossier being “Oppo-research” and “all campaigns do it”…..

      Until they PERMANENTLY changed the narrative….
      by giving us an ENTIRELY NEW ORIGIN story on DEC 30 2017…..

      It was a dark, rainy, chilly, foggy foggy night at a London Bar
      and George Papadopoulos told the Grand High Poobah from Australia:
      “Hey Alex……I met this GUY….and HE TOLD ME the Russians have dirt on Hillary in the form of 1000’s of emails…….
      now…..how about another gin and tonic, mate……(BUUUUUURRRPPP)”

          but the Mueller report conflates the May 10 Downer bar meeting with a May 6 meeting with Erika Thompson.
          I suspect Erika is too low on the totem pole to relay this kind of 5 Eyes info so Downer was used to do this instead.

          Remember, Papadop did not tell Downer about the emails even though Downer fished hard and was recording him. Papadop had told Azra Turk ( not her real name), a honeypot spy that was run at Papadop, that he was told Russia had the emails. Since the 5 eyes countries have agreed not to spy on each other (yeah right), that means what he told her could not be used.

          So Downer made a run at him that was unsuccessful. I believe Papadop even denied knowing about Hillarys emails.

          If you read Downers description of Papadops statement carefully, you will notice Downer cleverly disguises and confuses the dates to make it “sound” like Papadop told Downer. But he didn’t. That extra time was probably the coup leaders trying to decide how to proceed.

      Warner and Burr are in my humble opinion criminals who should be charged and tried and hopefully convicted of leaking classified information and conspiracy to overthrow the legally elected POTUS and nullify the 2016 election results.

            the OP suggest he KNOWS NUNES, personally.

            so he has the “advantage of knowing real character and comparing this to his public work”

            that’s a competely different world of difference for most constituents…for the vast majority, I might have met trump or my state officials in a rally, or rarely at a public town hall type of event. But I do not have the advantage of KNOWING them.

            my point, is we have to verify and avoid the error of assuming officials are always going to be representing properly…

            history suggests this highest proven evidence of corruption takes place “behind the scenes” esp in the DC circle.

            My view is that my candidate must act correctly and with the highest standards..anything less and he does not have my support..period.

            because looking the other way, or worse not caring at all, is exactly what allows corruption to go on and on.

      I had a little different take. The dates were redacted because of an impending indictment. During the trial the real dates would be used as evidence when compared to the leaked document. Also, it’s likely that a reduced sentence was negotiated for testimony as to who on the committee (Warner) told him to leak the document to the press. The Barr bunch have been very good at keeping their cards close to their vests. Cases are popping up without any early leaking like the Hillary campaign contribution case currently in the news. When Durham/Barr release their report this incident of leaking from the intel committee may be included.

    Never mind the fact that it can hardly be considered a cover up when we know what happened thanks to the efforts of investigators like SD. What I want to know is, what’s the point of setting a “leak trap” when the thing actually works and catches a huge perp (a sitting Senator) red handed…and then nothing? Who were the setters of this trap and why was there no follow up from them?

      they did not realize how the leaking was being conducted…it was not targeted..they needed to determine the source of leak and associates and also the scope…it could have easily been a far more damaging scale of treason for instance..selling state secrets etc. You don’t want to assume it’s only a “regular” press leak.

      when that happened…oh…that guy? he’s friendly to us..nevermind,knuckle rap..

      but the FBI says ..whataminute…this is serious business..

      which explains why CIA sent that sympathetic appeal to the judge for a light sentence.

      can’t bury it…but you can lessen its effects with damage control and brush it all away.

      and you would want to do this to encourage wolfe to take a plea and shut his pretty mouth about other CIA activities …

      this is where political influence from the IC destroys the justice system ..

      as we are observing right now with this charade impeachment by the dims

      it ALL goes back to a failed CIA coup.

      the dirty details does not alter this origin.

      THIS is why the IC must be reviewed by congress and have substantially less powers…

      with POWERFUL SPECIFIC penalties for failure to remain within the law.

  8. Hannity is a complete dotard at times, but he did get Carter Page to confirm strongly tonight what was suggested in the FISA report. Carter Page is CIA.

    The question becomes, was he in on the surveillance or not. I am leaning towards that he was working with Brennan but not quite sure on that. This FISA report left holes that you could drive a 747 through, as many here suspected it would.

      Page is an odd duck but I find him hard to believe. He acts dumb but really isn’t so why the act? More importantly, he keeps talking about suing and going to court and getting to the bottom of it but he never has. He noted he was doing his own lawyering which is foolish. Someone like Sydney Powell would have had his case in court getting discovery long ago.

      It has long been obvious, especially by the lack of any charges against Carter Page, that a FISA against him was not justified. His constitutional rights were violated. His name has been dragged through the mud. Why does he basically sit idly by?

      I suspect that Carter Page was a mole in the Trump camp. He let the FBI use him for a FISA warrant. He was working with them. His appearances are all meant to be subterfuge. Pretending to be something he is not. Like spies do.

      There’s something unsettling about that guy. Something not quite right.

      • Exactly. If Page had his rights violated, there would be 1000 ambulance chasing attorneys beating down his door. Yet somehow, he still doesn’t have legal counsel that I am aware of. The most logical conclusion is that his rights were not actually violated because he was in on the scam.

Instead, I see Carter Page as a necessary tool in the Intelligence Community’s effort to infiltrate the Trump campaign. The real Carter Page is an immoral sociopath, an ideal CIA asset.

    October 21, 2016 FISA application date confirmed by DOJ, officially, finally.

    The DOJ IG Horowitz Dec. 9, 2019 FISA paper confirms the initial Oct. 21, 2016 FISA application, as follows:

    [[[[[On October 18, 2016, three days before the first FISA application was submitted to the FISC, and after speaking with Steele that morning, Ohr requested a meeting with, and that same day met with McCabe to share Steele’s and Simpson’s information with him.]]]]]

    See Page 391 of document.

    October 21, 2018, subtract “three days” = October 18, 2016

    It may be FBI Director Wray’s boys redacted all the exact dates, i.e., all the 21s that came after October, but missed the above because they are not excellent proof readers, who knows.

    Also, a minor note perhaps to many, but for me, not at all minor.

    It is worth exploring whether, when the “FBI opened the Manafort money laundering investigation in January 2016, before the opening of Crossfire Hurricane and before Manafort joined the Trump campaign” — whether this was done at urging of Oleg Deripaska — whom the Obama gang wanted to use as an informant to nail Trump. Instead, Manafort got nailed. I am wondering if this was done as a favor to Derispaka — a favor by the same criminals that accused Trump of cavorting with Russians. More than a year ago, I read on The Saker blog that Putin thought the Mueller fantasy was a fraud, but according to Saker, Putin was pleased Manafort was being nailed. I D K.

    Also, IG just mentions in passing that Deputy AGs Sally Yates and Rod Rosenstein failed to do their job. Almost as an afterthought
    [[[[[Based upon the information in the application, Yates told us that when she approved and signed the first application, she did not believe it presented a close call from a legal sufficiency standpoint, and she was comfortable that the request for FISA authority sought by the FBI was an appropriate investigative step to take. Similarly, Rosenstein told us that by the time he signed Renewal Application No. 3 probable cause was not “a great stretch” and seemed obvious to him, given that the prior applications relied upon the same information that had been approved and granted three times by federal judges.]]]]]

    If this is accurate, Rosenstein did not comprehend that it is for DOJ to verify FISA material, not the court. Imagine, Rosenstein relied on the information because judges had previously approved them — but, based on DOJ assertions. This is as troubling as anything else.

    As is the fact Rosenstein was actively trying to verify Steele Dossier [[[[[Additionally, as described in earlier chapters, beginning in early 2017, Boente and later Rosenstein requested multiple briefings on the Crossfire Hurricane investigation, which included, among many topics, updates on the FBI’s continued efforts to assess Steele and his information.]]]]]

    This level of incompetence is matched by Yates.

    Her [[[[[Principal Associate Deputy Attorney General (PADAG) Matthew Axelrod, Ohr’s direct
    supervisor in 2016, told us that he would have expected to know about Ohr’s communications with Steele and the FBI. Axelrod stated that if ODAG officials had known, they would have questioned Ohr’s involvement and determined whether the FBI had the ability to “pull him out” of acting as a conduit between Steele and the FBI.]]]]]

    Ohr at the time was Associate Deputy Attorney General (ODAG), and neither Yates, nor Axelrod, nor AG Lynch, according to Horowitz’ brew, had any idea Ohr was freelancing for the FBI.

    This is commonly known as incompetence.

    In the incompetent and corrupt Yates was too busy sticking her nose in where it did not belong, trying to nail Flynn — using the 1799 Logan Act — instead of actually supervising the idiots who were her direct reports.

    The question is why such gross incompetence is just glossed over by Horowitz. The answer is Horowitz is grossly incompetent and corrupt.

    Speaking of Principal Associate Deputy Attorney General (PADAG) and Associate Deputy Attorney General (ADAG), here’s a few names we all know:

    Ford administration, Rudy Giuliani (ADAG) [Giuliani of course was Associate Attorney General in the Reagan administration]

    Clinton administration, Merrick Garland (PADAG)

    George W. Bush administration, Christopher A. Wray (PADAG); Ted Cruz (ADAG)

          you go into these things, not knowing scale..you assume nothing.

          but as you go along you get sufficient reasons you need to look more broadly and in some cases, very specifically in a related area.

          so I would not agree that the strategies are wrong….it’s how you CONDUCT yourself and keep the law your guiding light and even if it looks like you can’t get what the law allows, and when the evidence says you are wrong, you stop…

      Yes. And people don’t get to pick and choose the stage in their country’s life cycle that they’ll be alive in. We simply have to accept what we get. Live long enough and you find that you have one foot stuck in one stage and one foot in the next. If it feels like you’re being torn apart, it should.

      (In real life I apply long-term cycle theory to financial markets. For people interested in this, check out Strauss & Howe 4th Turning stuff, or Kondratieff wave theory as a start.)

      Anyway, my point is that the tumultuous/revolutionary events we’re living through are to be expected. Jefferson’s quote about the necessity of “watering the tree of liberty” from time to time is often used to justify violence in the course of seeking freedom. But in a more philosophical/metaphorical way, it can mean that eventually we will get back to the place in the life cycle of nations where it will be necessary to start over, and that the structures that got us through our first 200 years reasonably shouldn’t be expected to last forever. We’d have to re-build them. And I guess that’s where we are today, and what the next generation to come of age has ahead of them as their life task.

    What happened to these corrupt people who SEVERLY jeopardized our national security, possibly for decades to come, and who bilked taxpayers out of million$$$$$$? Slaps on the wrist.

    If you don’t see the problem with this low bar– you haven’t been paying attention.
    Consider the many reports of VALID calls/contact made to FIB that go IGNORED, only to end in tragedies that might’ve been prevented/lessened.
    Or the “lone” terrorist that we always learn of AFTER-THE-FACT, was already on their radar.

    One of the primary tools utilized by the Obama-era DOJ to surveille the Trump campaign was the figure of Carter Page – and that IG Horowitz never once sat down and interviewed Mr. Page despite Page repeatedly requesting that he do so?

    Let that sink in.

    There can be no better argument made for an amendment to the Constitution establishing mandatory term limits for all federal officials. Congress, of course, will never propose this… the Founders provided an alternative remedy: An Artcle V Convention of States. #COSProject

    The IG chooses to not assign a motive, ie Political Bias, but with the abundance of facts surly a motive exists. The IG says what it was not, but not what it was. So we wait for Durum to reveal the motive that drove all these seemingly bright accomplished lawyers to destroy their carriers and the FBI/DOJ.
    As a matter of fact I can believe it wasn’t political bias, which means it was worse.

    Ryan worked for and was close to Jack Kemp. Kemp was a partner with Dennis Montgomery in the venture that created THE HAMMER.

    THE HAMMER IS THE KEY TO THE COUP
    https://theamericanreport.org/2019/11/10/the-hammer-is-the-key-to-the-coup/

    THE HAMMER, the Whistleblower Tapes, and Dennis Montgomery were written about and published on March 17, 2017:

    Four star Admiral James A. “Ace” Lyons and #3 at the Pentagon Airforce General Thos McInerney brought the March 17, 2017 “Whistleblower Tapes” story to America’s airwaves on March 19, 2017 on WAAM 1600 Operation Freedom w/ Dr Dave Janda.

    Strzok and Page noted it and were found to be texting on March 19, 2017 about Montgomery and his then attorney Klayman within minutes of General McInerneys on air interview mentioning the very same names Gen McInerney had just mentioned on that Sunday night.

    Much flack came from the March 17,2017 “Whistleblower Tapes” story…calls screaming at the top of his decibel range “Do you have any idea of the veritable sh*tstorm you have created in DC”
    General McInerney was shortly thereafter taken off of FoxNews airwaves

    Obama knew about THE HAMMER. Montgomery faxed him —-and faxed Biden, Pelosi, Horowitz (above my pay grade) and many others

  41. I will buy the 1st warrant on Carter Page, but then, it becomes so all so dreadfully simple- what were the ongoing ‘predicates ‘ for 3 more warrants? New judge, new warrant application, what did they have the 2 3 4th times they didnt have the 1st?

    Via the Muller report we know they never had, zip, nada nothing….so, they had to have lied, QED.

      He is a criminal. A criminal that blackmailed the doj to let him off on the ever useful lying to congress charge in order to protect corrupt senators. The doj covered up for these criminals, and I bet they have done it many times in the past.

    Only one way to fix this–AG Barr simply must indict and take these criminals to court. No quarter given. Should Barr fail, we are doomed and WE The People will be forced to restore The Rule of Law without the help of the DoJ and the courts.

    UPDATED VERSION:

    “In total, at the request of the FBI, the Department filed four FISA applications, each of which was granted by the FISC: the first FISA application on October 21, 2016, and three renewal applications on January 12, April 7, and June 29, 2017. A different FISC judge considered each application before issuing the requested orders, which collectively resulted in approximately 11 months of FISA coverage of Carter Page from October 21, 2016, until September 22, 2017.”

    From the updated version of the IG report here: https://www.justice.gov/storage/120919-examination.pdf
    Now the day numbers are no longer redacted.
