      Has anyone figured out who Case Agent 1 from the IG Report is?

      – Halpers FBI handler
      – responsible for the woods file for the FISA
      – interviewed the Dossier source 1

      This person is the most culpable of the FBI folks.

        IF SSA 1 is Pientka (who participated in Flynn interview)… He knew “the information from Steele’s reporting about a Russian consulate being located in Miami was inaccurate”

        Go to TechnoFog’s twitter. He has a list of things Pientka was responsible for on the original FISA warrant application on Page.

    I don’t usually watch the videos here (I’m more a reader than a listener), so I just discovered via a Breitbart article what it was that Clinesmith forged in the FISA application:

    “FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith doctored an email that proved that former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page was working with the U.S. government — not against it as a Russian agent …

    Wow – puts the lie to the “Russian agent” aspect for Page

    Were they claiming similar for Papadopolous?

    I don’t think so, I think they were claiming that PapaD was being FED by a Russian agent – Mifsud?

    Who also turns out to be working for Western intelligence, I believe

        It’s not that he can’t articulate it the issue is he can’t fully elaborate on the questions. There is much more still to come out and he can’t get into or completely answer while the investigation is still ongoing. He as much as said so stating that there so much now exposed and being exposed in response to several statements. Morons don’t graduate Annapolis, go on to get masters at Georgetown, a MBA from NYU and finally a PHD from SOAS in London. Poor choice of words a poor speaker, aloof or many other things but a moroon he’s not.

        Page’s scholastic record and degrees suggest a facile mind for mathematics but his verbal fluency might be quite a bit less. I say “might” because I too am not convinced that he isn’t simply good at pretending to be “different” in order to avoid answering questions.


    • Petrel says:

      xcontra — no moron ever graduated near the top of his Naval Academy class. So why does Carter Page not answer questions directly ? Why does he suddenly veer-off in his answers ?

      Over the last 30 months, we gradually learned that Page worked “undercover” for our security services — notably against 3 Russian agents. As such, he was undoubtedly required to sign a non-disclosure agreement, which is why he could not answer certain questions directly. Think about it. The FBI had an original, or a copy, of Carter Page’s non-disclosure agreement. This gave the FBI a unique hold on his hanging-mute-in-the-wind even as he was trashed by the Press, the FBI and by the Justice Department.

      The Inspector General’s report has now established Page’s background of service to the FBI and CIA — and thereby blown his cover. Page’s lawyers will be working overtime to regularize his new cover status as a “former undercover asset,” which will permit Page to answer questions directly.

      I have heard him interviewed several times and have always thought geez I hope he isn`t a typical Naval Academy grad cuz if he is that would explain the rash of major warship collisions that have plagued the navy.

    Page was spying. I’m convinced of it now…he’s trying to Telegraph that fact.

    Page meets in March 16 w FBI regarding previous work. Informs them he volunteered for Trump and they then started investigating him….or did they, page and fbi, conspire to insert page into the campaign via volunteer route and then use the ruse of an investigating him to collect information.

      Here how I think this went down:
      1) Brennan orders up a media covfefe about Trump’s lack of foreign policy advisors.
      2) Brennan group at CIA instruct their asset Page to approach the Trump campaign as a “foreign policy advisor”. Trump campaign foolishly bites, just so they can claim to have advisors. These “advisors” do nothing campaigny; they wander off and play with themselves.
      3) With a wink and a nod, CIA tells Comey/McCabe/Strzok at FBI, “Look, look, that Page guy is connected to Russkies!” FBI has the barnacle attached to the Trump campaign that they can target for a FISA warrant.
      4) After an initial failure, CIA assets Glenn Simpson/Fusion GPS/Nellie Ohr create a dossier of gossip and hearsay. They hire Steele to market it as his own work product. FBI uses it as it’s main evidence to get the FISA warrant.
      5) The plan is not so much to collect actual information, but to harm Trump by leaking that the FBI was investigating Russian agents associated with his campaign.

    Good Lord Almighty. Trying to listen to him literally gives me a headache. I dont think he answered one single question of hers with any clarity.

    Im convinced he went into that meeting with the FBI on March 2 2016 where they told him he was now going to volunteer for the Trump campaign and that they would be watching and listening to him. He was a willing participant, just doing his duty to help his country. Then in the fall they threw him under the bus to get a FISA and burned him. Thats the part he didnt expect.

    Thats why he is so dodgy in all his interviews. He knows a lot more than he has revealed.

      Interesting. If you combine this official FBI press release of January 26, 2015, announcing the arrest and indictment of Evgeny Buryakov, with the official DOJ press release of March 11, 2016, announcing his guilty plea, it is clear that John Carlin knew exactly who Carter Page was when the National Security Division of the DOJ filed both the initial rejected FISA application on Page and then the original approved FISA application on October 21, 2016. Not only does AG Holder specifically reference the SVR’s attempt to recruit spies as a basis for the arrest of Buryakov and expulsion of Sporyshev and Podobnyy, the indictment itself makes attempting to recruit New York City residents as intelligence assets one of the counts.

      Carlin headed the NSD at the time, and is praised by Holder for the NSD’s work in assisting the US Attorney for SDNY in indicting Buryakov and breaking up the espionage ring headed by Sporyshev and Podobnyy, in which Page was instrumental because their attempts to recruit him were used against them by using Page to introduce electronic surveillance into the very offices of the SVR in New York City. There is simply no way Carlin did not know that Page was an undisclosed employee of the FBI whose attempted recruitment by the SVR had been UNSUCCESSFUL, and now we understand that Page may actually have been on loan from the CIA for this sting, a fact Klinesmith a year later altered an email to insure that the FISA court continued to think Page had been successfully recruited.

      In the original October 21, 2016 FISA application, Comey and Yates sign off for the FBI and DOJ, respectively, using cherry-picked facts about the attempted recruitment of Page by the SVR in the Buryakov sting to suggest to the FISA court that the SVR had successfully recruited Page as an agent of the Russian Federation. Although it is possible that the redactions in the application disclose the SVR’s lack of success, that seems highly unlikely unless there is also an explanation for how the SVR managed to turn Page after getting blown out of the water by the sting, particularly since the prosecution of Buryakov and, in particular, the March 11, 2016 DOJ press release clearly give the SVR enough information to realize that Page was the source for the critical electronic surveillance.

      This is truly the smoking gun, and Carlin was holding the trigger. He was head of the NSD during the preparation and filing of both the rejected and originally approved FISA applications. And he was also dealing with the audit ordered by Admiral Rogers, filing a mea culpa with the FISA court regarding the subcontractor abuse at the same time. Carlin ties everything up in a bow.

      Add to this the new information from the video that Page met with his Buryakov handlers on March 2, 2016, and told them he planned to join the Trump campaign as a volunteer, and it is crystal clear the FBI and NSD decided to use Page as their pretext for electronically surveilling the Trump campaign. Klinesmith’s altering of evidence makes this clear, particularly if he assisted in the Buryakov prosecution, so would have known Page was a US intelligence asset all along. This also probably explains why Preet was the only US Attorney to refuse to resign. He likely needed time to cover some tracks.

      If Durham does not have the full Buryakov file, he should get it ASAP.

    No one should feel the least bit sorry for this guy. Carter page is an absolute weasel of the highest order.

    The reason this guy comes off as a complete moron, and his words don’t come out right, is because he needs to come off as the victim, but at the same time, not peave off his Deep State/FBI handlers less they destroy his life like they did so many others.

    Carter Page assisted the FBI and their DS handlers in a classic case of “bump-and-run” surveillance. Carter Page and the FBI know how this works because it’s been tried and tested and perfected way before Trump even came on the scene.

    Carter Page announces to his FBI handlers, ( that he’s well documented working with in the past ), “Hey FBI handlers, listen !!! I am off to RUSSIA to go speak to some RUSSIANS that are most likely connected to PUTIN and the KREMLIN !!! Did you guys hear that, you want me to repeat ?!?! I Gee, I sure hope that doesn’t throw up any red flags and get myself and everyone that comes into contact with me, put under surveillance when I come back and volunteer for Trump campaign !!!, Right ?!?!?” ( wink win, nod nod ).

    This guy is a snitch, a rat, pond scum. I read on here some time back about how it was even possible for Rosenstein to sign off on the Carter Page FISA warrant without even reading it and never once did I read the reason may have been because Rosenstein knew, without a doubt, that Page was on their side, part of “Le Resitgence !”.

    So, once again, why would Page join the Trump team and be the silver bullet for Strzok? You realize that, no? Calculating, scheming Strzok used Page as the lever into Trump. Do you think for one second that this was pure coincidence? He was placed there.

      Joe DiGenova had a theory, shortly after the 2016 election, that after her landslide victory Hillary was going to get even with Trump for “Crooked Hillary” and “Lock her up!” by launching a massive investigation of Trump’s dealings with Russia. Trump’s name would be blackened, all his people would have huge legal bills. The Steele Dossier was drafted as groundwork for that.

      That does explain why everyone in Washington had heard the whispers about Russian collusion, but no one went public. And why Papadopoulos was fingered in July 2016, but not interrogated until January, 2017. Carter Page provided a convenient vehicle for election espionage. The inquisition was supposed to launch after the election. When Hillary suffered her shocking defeat, they went ahead with the Russia hoax, anyway.

    For months, if not years, I’ve heard Carter Page speak when interviewed on talk radio, usuallyand often on Hannity. Every time he spoke he was always nebulous, notably disingenuous. It seemed as if he could never commit to affirming anything. It sounded like he was afraid to do so, to say anything much, or take any stance. As if what was happening to him didn’t bother him much, if at all.

    I thought that odd. Highly unusual or extraordinary. Any ordinary person would or should be outraged at what supposedly happened to him. But none of that was never expressed or heard from him, coming from his lips. Very odd, indeed. WHY is that?

    Now I (we?) get to see his beautiful face, and connect his voice with his visage. Now we get to see the entire picture, to see the entirety of him.

    He’s a G-man, bought and owned. Shaved head, and all. Maybe he has a collection of wigs in his closet? Like spies do? Easier to don one that way and change his persona. Chameleon like.

    I wouldn’t trust this swamp rat as far as I can spit.

    Mr. Carter Page is still playing out his Faustian bargain. He’s a “made man”. I hope he gets what he deserves eventually. He probably will. Time will ultimately turn the page on Carter Page. Good riddance, Carter.

    We have been unable to see the forest, because the trees have been blocking our view.

    Page was just confirmed as a confidential CIA informant(spy) by Horowitz. Graham questioned him about it on live TV yesterday. Do not be fooled by the stupid look on Carter Page’s face.The CIA does not use idiots as informants. The IG report states the FBI did not insert an undercover agent into the campaign, but that they did in fact use undercover agents to speak to and record(spy on) members of the campaign. This is true. The FBI did not plant a spy. It was the CIA who inserted the undercover agent into the campaign. It was Carter Page! Then the FBI “spied” on the CIA’s planted spy.

    FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith altered an email from the CIA to the FBI which verified he was a CIA informant. He changed it to say he was not an informant, then passed this along to the FISA court to get a warrant. The altering of the email by Clinesmith is being portrayed as a crime against Carter Page, when in fact it was the FBI providing cover for him as a CIA informant! Of course the FBI did not tell the FISA court that Carter Page was a CIA informant. Not only would it prove he is not a Russian agent, but it would also expose the CIA for planting a spy. Altering the email also created the perfect low level fall guy(Clinesmith) in the event that the coup was ever discovered. Has anyone heard a peep about any serious jail time for Clinesmith after this damning revelation? I am sure the payoff is worth whatever brutal disciplinary action Wray is going to take.

    Page has been running around playing the dumb victim. In the beginning, he was all smiles on Hannity and all he wanted was to make sure this never happened to another president again. He didn’t seem to want anything to do with suing or holding anyone accountable. It was very odd and it frustrated everyone watching, including Hannity. He only recently started talking about taking legal action, and that still hasn’t happened yet.

    Obama had the CIA plant a spy inside the Trump campaign, then had the FBI get a warrant on that spy in order to cover up that illegal move, while at the same time providing a “legal” basis to spy on other members of the campaign. There was never a real potential Russian agent in the campaign, so they had to try to create one so all of the focus was not on their spy. They targeted George Papdopoulus. They even charged him with the crime of lying to the FBI. To this day, Page is still being portrayed as the victim to cover the fact that he is a spy, he has never been charged with a crime, and he has not sued anyone.

        A spy trying to maintain his cover usually pretends to be on the side of the person they are/were spying on.

        Several things are certain. He was a CIA informant and he was inside the Trump campaign. The CIA knew it, the FBI knew it, he knew it, and all 3 of them knew that the other 3 knew it. The Trump campaign did not know it. Now we all know it.

          I think he is military intel and was put in place by Admiral Rogers or General Flynn. Preet Bharara interviewed March 2 2016, Rogers ceased contractor surveillance something like March 7 and Carter Page joined candidate Trump March 26ish.

          Why would Rogers uncover the contractor 702 abuse and walk away? Why havent FISA judges spoken out? Why was Contreras recused? Might have even been Flynn that put Carter Page in place. No need for him to talk to Halper for another year unless he was looking at Halper. Also NSA became part of military command.

          I think he came to look at 702 and FISA abuse and stayed for the cover up and coup. He is not an informant like Mifsud or Halper he is a real undercover military intel spy playing a undercover informant for CIA/FBI.

          Just guessing but it seems to fit better than him being a CIA snitch


    • NJ Transplant says:

      Eric – I have been thinking the same thing for quite a while now. Why did Carter Page threaten a restraining order if the IG report was released? Only the targets of the report get to review it to defend themselves. Page was not a target. He wasn’t even interviewed. Page was the CIA spy who was planted inside the campaign. Why did Page volunteer to work for free for the Trump campaign? Carter Page also kept up communication with Stefan Halper for months after the supposed initial communication. Carter Page will have a hard time winning a lawsuit when he was a willing participant.

    My impression is Page writes much much better and clearer than answering questions on TV. My bet he’s also afraid to answering a direct question for fear of be prosecuted for blabbing about all the intelligence work he’s been involved in and anything he says wrongly puts him in the scolding heat. That sure would help him, Trump or us. I also think he enjoys acting like a dummy who can’t focus on the simplest questions.

    Carter was a member of the FBI team, so the FISA warrant was not aimed at at him. The FBI applied for a FISA warrant on Carter Page to get to Trump’s emails via the 2-hop rule. If found out, Carter was expendable.
    The most worrying part of this whole episode is why the Inspector General of the United States failed to interview Carter Page. If he had done so, the can of worms would have been opened.
    No one asked Horowitz this question at his congressional testimony on Wednesday. Why not?
    Carter Page is central to this FISA investigation, but not interviewed, and no one is asking why?

      Exactly ! Inspector clousseau-horowitz is llowed to interviewanyone who will answer questions, but none of his 400 merry “investigators” thought to ask carter page any questions. Horowitz is a swamp-protecting maroon.
      There needs to be a FISA Warrant on horowitz, going back 13 years.


  27. Carter Page is an egghead. Just look at his head shine. Just listen to his brain jump. This guy is probably a great analyst, and he’s gonna get a big pile in a lawsuit because no one will hire him now. His lawyer will probably keep him off the stand. Twice Maria had to rephrase a question into a short bullet point.
