AG Bill Barr Full Interview Covering Horowitz Report, Durham Investigation and Impeachment…

Attorney General Bill Barr had an extensive sit down interview with Fox News host Martha MacCallum on Wednesday, December 18th.  The interview was broadcast this evening.

.

On August 30th, 2019, Devin Nunes submitted eight criminal referrals to the DOJ.

Five of those referrals were for specific people who participated in the political scheme against candidate, president-elect and President Trump. The remaining three referrals were not person specific, but rather outlines of “conspiracy”:

  • One referral was the conspiracy to intentionally falsifying material to the FISA Court in order to gain a Title-One FISA warrant against U.S. person Carter Page; and by extension the political campaign of Donald Trump.
  • A second conspiracy referral targets the intentional manipulation of intelligence information; and a conspiracy to weaponize the intelligence apparatus against a political party and presidential candidate, Donald Trump.
  • The third conspiracy referral is less specific and pertains to evidence collected that shows a small group of government officials engaged in “global classified intelligence leaks” to the U.S. media and other entities and/or persons.

On the conspiracy to manipulate the intelligence apparatus. That angle will be interesting to watch because it goes to the origin of activity in early 2016. The issues around how Crossfire Hurricane was officially started… and, more importantly, the earlier use of intelligence assets: Joseph Mifsud (Maltese Professor, FBI/CIA asset), Alexander Downer (Australian Diplomat), Stephan Halper (U.K. Academic and FBI/CIA asset), or Charles Tawil (Israeli CIA asset) to make contact with George Papadopoulos, Mike Flynn or Carter Page. Those contacts were covert and (un)official government missions for the weaponized U.S. intelligence apparatus.  This is where John Brennan is center-stage.

The last referral relating to specific leaks of classified intelligence – sounds like Nunes is submitting a classified list of only a few people who had access to the direct intelligence product that was leaked.  Unfortunately, the ordinary Main Justice approach toward this type of an investigation would be through the DOJ-NSD and FBI Counterintelligence divisions; however, those two intelligence agencies were likely the source of the leaks and the career staff within those sub-agencies are exactly the same as they were when the seditious conspiracy was carried out.   That dynamic presents a challenge on a myriad of levels.

[NOTE: •On July 31st, 2016 the FBI opened a counterintelligence investigation against the Trump campaign. They did not inform congress until March 2017. •At the beginning of August (1st-3rd) 2016 FBI Agent Peter Strzok traveled to London, England for interviews with UK intelligence officials. •On August 15th, 2016 Peter Strzok sends a text message to DOJ Lawyer Lisa Page describing the “insurance policy“, needed in case Hillary Clinton were to lose the election. That’s where Carter Page comes in.]

However, CIA Director John Brennan didn’t stop with simply originating the FBI investigation, he went on to promote additional material from his knowledge of the Christopher Steele Dossier.

This is the part that John Brennan has denied; however, the evidence proving his lies is overwhelming.

We start by remembering the sworn testimony of John Brennan to congress on May 23rd, 2017.  Listen carefully to the opening statement from former CIA Director John Brennan and pay close attention to the segment at 13:35 of this video [transcribed below]:

Brennan: [13:35] “Third, through the so-called Gang-of-Eight process we kept congress apprised of these issues as we identified them.”

“Again, in consultation with the White House, I PERSONALLY briefed the full details of our understanding of Russian attempts to interfere in the election to congressional leadership; specifically: Senators Harry Reid, Mitch McConnell, Dianne Feinstein and Richard Burr; and to representatives Paul Ryan, Nancy Pelosi, Devin Nunes and Adam Schiff between 11th August and 6th September [2016], I provided the same briefing to each of the gang of eight members.”

“Given the highly sensitive nature of what was an active counter-intelligence case [that means the FBI], involving an ongoing Russian effort, to interfere in our presidential election, the full details of what we knew at the time were shared only with those members of congress; each of whom was accompanied by one senior staff member.”…

Notice a few things from this testimony.  First, where Brennan says “in consultation with the White House“.  This is a direct connection between Brennan’s activity and President Obama, National Security Adviser Susan Rice and Chief-of-Staff Denis McDonough, each of whom would have held knowledge of what Brennan was briefing to the Go8.

Secondly, Brennan is describing raw intelligence (obviously gathered prior to the Carter Page FISA Application/Warrant – October 21st, 2016) that he went on to brief the Gang-of-Eight (pictured below).  Notice Brennan said he did briefings “individually”.

Brennan also says in his testimony that he began the briefings on August 11th, 2016.  This is a key point because former Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid sent a letter to James Comey on August 27th, 2016, as an outcome of his briefing by John Brennan. But it is the content of Reid’s letter that really matters.

In the last paragraph of Reid’s letter to Comey he notes something that is only cited within the Christopher Steele Dossier [full letter pdf here]:

This letter is August 27th, 2016.  The Trump advisor in the letter is Carter Page. The source of the information is Christopher Steele in his dossier. Two months later (October 21st, 2016) the FBI filed a FISA application against Carter Page using the Steele Dossier.

So what we are seeing here is CIA Director John Brennan briefing Harry Reid on the Steele dossier in August 2016, even before the dossier reached the FBI.  However, John Brennan has denied seeing the dossier until December of 2016.  A transparent lie.

Brennan goes on to testify the main substance of those 2016 Go8 briefings was the same as the main judgements of the January 2017 classified and unclassified intelligence assessments published by the CIA, FBI, DNI and NSA, ie. “The Intelligence Community Assessment” (ICA).

However, we know Brennan put material from the Dossier into the ICA.

We also know from Paul Sperry: “[…] A source close to the House investigation said Brennan himself selected the CIA and FBI analysts who worked on the ICA, and that they included former FBI counterespionage chief Peter Strzok“Strzok was the intermediary between Brennan and [former FBI Director James] Comey, and he was one of the authors of the ICA,” according to the source.” (link)

Summary: During a period early in 2016 CIA Director John Brennan manufactured the material needed to start the FBI investigation on July 31st, 2016.  John Brennan also received information from within the Steele Dossier which he put into President Obama’s Daily Briefing and shared with the Gang of Eight.

Here’s where it gets even more interesting.

On December 15, 2016, Strzok and Page texted each other about a sister organization leaking to the mainstream media. The next day, December 16, Strzok texted Page again, this time to discuss an article in The Washington Post: “FBI in agreement with CIA that Russia aimed to help Trump win White House”, where Strzok argued that the Central Intelligence Agency is more capable of manipulating the press and that the Federal Bureau of Investigation had the initial position, not the Central Intelligence Agency…

So it would seem that Brennan was leaking to the media and pushing hard on this same Russia narrative during the transition period.  It’s almost bizarre to see Brennan now saying “perhaps he had bad information”…  BRENNAN IS THE INFORMATION !!

F**king Brennan!

    So the most consequential and critical investigation in the history of the DOJ and our country….and the AG isn’t involved? And essentially only one person is heading the investigation? Why wouldn’t several investigations be running concurrently, looking and coordinating several different aspects? The interview did not give me a good feeling.

      McCallum was trying to get information out of Barr that struck too close to the current investigations. I think the AG had to obfuscate or decline to answer in the manner that he did on several questions.

      I don’t think you or anyone can conclude that the AG is staying out of these investigations.
      On the contrary, he has voiced too many very specific opinions on certain aspects of the coup that demonstrate he is aware of many details including the chronology of events. But he is trying to walk a thin line and keep a positive face on his organization.

      Still I agree with Sundance that Barr appears to be ignoring the declassification and un-redaction of many critical documents (thereby covering up) many blatant and exposed crimes by Congressional members and staff, which perpetuates the corruption throughout high levels of DC government, That lack of action flies in the face of the President’s efforts to drain that Swamp.

      Barr has to at least pretend to stay out of the fray otherwise the news media and Democrats will say it’s being directed by President Trump for political revenge!:

    Yet Barr went with Durham to Italy, yet says he’s only occasionally in touch with what Durham is doing? I don’t get it.
    Comey is such a sleaze.

      If Barr says he is directing this effort, or in constant contact with Durham, he is just inviting charges of political biased prosecution. I think he is smart to keep at arms length as long as he determines Durham is on the right path.

      And considering Durham has rolled up to Brennan, I’m very optimistic. A prosecutor starts at the bottom and moves up, so that would indicate he might be close to finishing.

      Barr already previously addressed that “charge”, that he was taking on an active role as an investigator over in Italy and other locations during that trip. He quite clearly said in a previous interview (the one on OANN I think?) he went there in his proper role as the head representative of the DOJ to introduce Durham to the Italian officials, and then stayed out of Durham’s activities. It would have been highly improper and irregular had Durham just shown up by himself.

    “Strzok argued that the Central Intelligence Agency is more capable of manipulating the press”

    Strozk knew what he was talking about. The CIA is the nexus of the MSM/Deep State propaganda machine, starting with Operation Mockingbird in 1950. Some form of those relationships continue to this day. (When Anderson Cooper was at Yale, he interned for the CIA. Make of that what you will).

        So Roberts is pushing Collyer out after she’s exposed FISC corruption and is replacing her with a Deep State 0bama hack.

        Roberts has confirmed where he stands in all of this.
        He certainly cannot be trusted to preside over any impeachment hearing in the Senate.

    While he attempts to speak with gravitas, I don’t think Barr actually understands the gravity of the situation.

    He is clearly leaving open the option of the traditional whitewash with light wrist slapping. But that’s just not going to work this time. The public are too angry and far to informed.

    To whitewash, he would need to explain and name the OCONUS lures, and show why they had zero to do with targeting Trump people. He would need to explain Admiral Rogers’ findings and demonstrate that no Trump people were being targeted by those illegal searches. He would need to explain the “Insurance policy” and demonstrate why it had nothing to do with the illegal spying on Trump.

    “Durham was very thorough. The conspiracy theories are unfounded. Case closed.” Simply isn’t going to fly. He needs to explain every piece of information in the public domain related to Spygate and back the explanation with evidence not opinion, or the rule of law ends.

    I have to admit, I am so outraged by this ongoing third world banana republic derp state hide the obama tar baby media DNC $hitshow that I fear tagging Barr with blame for inability to magically pull a rabbit out of the hat. I’m tempted to snark about bobblehead McCallum and her caref ully over produced telempromter fakey ambush interviews, but then I think of whom else could do it..Sean I told you tick tock ? Chris Dad issues Matthews.
    They already got gold in Maria B up at 3am prepping for morning show, where she sheeple ‘splains what Sundance has laid out for non-mouth breathers.

    So, I guess Barr has to do the tap dance or cede the mediasphere to LingComey or that execrable Pelosi-thing, or worse TraitorHolder daring to accuse him of e,actly what Obama is glaringly guilty of…if Durham cant produce the obvious, I fear a great Jacksonian uprising, and it wont be civil discourse, cant we just all get along, either…

    Cold cynical fury, simmering.
