Against all Odds – Three FBI Officials Quietly Working to Reveal the Truth…

I’m not sure exactly who they are, and there’s a possibility they might just be one person; however, it appears there are three distinct FBI officials engaged in an overall investigative capacity, attempting to break the truth through the corrupt machinery.

Each individual is noted within a specific event or outcome. Hopefully AG Bill Barr has tasked his deputy James Rosen to hold an honest ‘climate assessment‘ discussion with these individuals.

♦The first honorable FBI Agent is the FBI official who enhanced the DOJ sentencing memo for James Wolfe. The DOJ prosecution, namely DC U.S. Attorney Jessie K Liu -possibly following instructions from Rod Rosenstein- was trying to cover-up the classified intelligence leak of SSCI Security Director James Wolfe in order to protect powerful Senators.

One FBI agent was obviously not happy with that DOJ leadership decision and seeded the DOJ ‘sentencing memo’ with a key sentence that exposed the cover-up:

For him or her we are thankful. That sunlight, though unsuccessful in stopping the corrupt cover-up, provided just enough undeniable evidence to highlight the severity of a cover-up initiated by those running the DOJ in 2018.

We note everyone associated with that decision has since been removed.

♦The second FBI official to note, might actually be a key top-level DOJ official – though that seems less likely. The second FBI official is however high ranking. The high ranking FBI position is likely because the top level security clearance was needed for this FBI agent to travel to CIA headquarters and review the CIA operational file on Carter Page.

The CIA file on Carter Page included a copy of the return memo to the FBI outlining Mr. Page as a source for CIA information involving various Russian individuals. That CIA return memo was edited by corrupt FBI lead lawyer Kevin Clinesmith to hide Page’s action on behalf of the CIA.

The FBI Agent who saw that memo in Page’s CIA file then compared it to the memo in the FBI operational file on Carter Page. The difference on the exact same memo between the CIA file and the FBI file led to the discovery of Clinesmith manipulating internal documents to frame Carter Page.  That Senior FBI officer is another truth-teller.

♦The third FBI agent, perhaps a career FBI administrative officer, who is clearly working to bring sunlight despite being surrounded by corruption, was involved in the actual text writing of the IG FISA abuse report itself.

Whether on assignment for the FISA review, or whether an administrative investigator attached to the Office of Inspector General, this isn’t the first time we have noticed a very specific inclusion of word choices that helped bring sunlight to an intentionally opaque report.

CTH will not identify the signs, except to say that each of them was/is irrelevant for the context of the written text. However, their inclusion was/is an obvious breadcrumb trail from inside the machine.

♦ I share this research perspective publicly, optimistically, because not everyone is corrupted. However, the non-corrupt middle-tier appear to be working to expose the truth against the efforts of the top-tier FBI offices trying to bury it.

I’m certain if the top tier was cleared out (with an aggressive posture) those middle-tier honest-brokers could greatly help AG Bill Barr…. IF, Barr is genuinely disposed therein.

However, AG Bill Barr’s continued defense and support for FBI Director Chris Wray, Deputy FBI Director David Bowditch and FBI legal counsel Dana Boente; in addition to his former -perhaps reformed- impression of U.S. Attorney Jessie Liu, runs counter to the honest administration of justice.

2020 is only five days away….

It’s time for Attorney General Bill Barr to start calling the baby ugly.

Bill Barr will either be part of the solution, or he’ll endeavor to keep covering up the problem out of some misguided loyalty to those corrupt officials around him… there really is no middle ground.

Truth ain’t complicated!




Consider, and note: Brandon Van Grack is still working for AG Bill Barr…

    Keeping in mind that the ‘small group’ within the FBI/DOJ is as advertised a small cohort of aligned interests, thus to represent three out thousands of FBI/DOJ personnel as an indictment of the culture is misleading. It more likely three out 50-100 with many in positions at the highest levels of being one or two rungs just below the political appointed adminstrative leadership.
    The smoking gun likely resides within this highly compartmentalized group structure/dynamic.

    So far they are all sticking to their story because the narrative being driven is being maintained by the self serving corruption of many political interests.

    That is the real troubling aspect, “The intangible marching orders they are all ideologically aligning to protect.”

    I’ll put it to all this way, “When does the corruption of the political institutions(parties) become so corrupt from the values sold to the population that put them in office. Become so clear cut, the step back that says, “Hey, something stinks in Denmark, and the go ‘oh, my God… This dirty laundry can not be a air out, it will strike down and achieve the very thing people are saying needs to be rooted out to protect our democratic republic.
    To me that is how vile and corrupt the whole sham has become, “A SOP of corruption values that says, “It is all untouchable, therefore the doubling down and upper handed mentality of not only getting away with it but an outright playing of the ‘get out jail card’ to continue onward.
    Because, they know the ‘day after outcome’ is a damnation not the corruption but the whole process that put these people in office.

      mtk, I agree with everything you said above. A week or so ago someone on CTH presented a list of “usual suspects” that identified several dozen cohorts that I wish I had copied. If you or someone else remembers where in CTH that list was provided, I would sure like to make a copy. It included Obama &, Hilliary, all the way down to Clinesmith and many others. Like you, I hope that he critical mass of dirty laundry stink will soon be reached, as in “there are none so blind they cannot see”, and there may be “none so incapable of smelling” the stink. I’m hopng the stink will be stronger than mercaptan.


  2. Bill Barr’s interview a week or so ago with Martha McCallum…..Bill Barr specifically said he did not know John Durham and only met him briefly years earlier at a luncheon or some such…Briefly as in a few minutes…..That’s what shocked me….and not in a good way….

    So, I immediately thought to myself…..Who recommended Durham to Barr??? and how do you know Durham is the right guy for the job??? Who were your other choices, if any??? You just admitted you don’t know Durham at all….Seems very Odd….

      I have read the Durham has been working on this investigation since October of 2018, that is WAY before Barr took over. I think Sessions appointed him and Barr just let everyone know he was appointed when he said he(Barr) appointed him. It is probably just me but I have faith that things will work out correctly. I leave all this in God’s hands, it helps me sleep better at night. What will happen will happen. The people have been put in place, things have started happening and now it is just waiting until things are revealed to us. Declass is what all want, but what if declass has happened so that investigations have gone forward. Public declass will probably happen when all is revealed or a little at a time. Things can’t be all dropped at once of else chaos will ensue. People have to be given the facts a little at a time, not to prolong things but so they can digest them and realize how bad things really had gotten. Things are much worse than what I thought and I thought things were crappy. Of course this is all JMHO!

      Federal government

      Following those five years as a state prosecutor, Durham became a federal prosecutor, joining the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Connecticut.[6] From 1982 to 1989, he served as an attorney and then supervisor in the New Haven Field Office of the Boston Strike Force in the Justice Department’s Organized Crime and Racketeering Section. From 1989 to 1994, he served as Chief of the Office’s Criminal Division. From 1994 to 2008, he served as the Deputy U.S. Attorney, and served as the U.S. Attorney in an acting and interim capacity in 1997 and 1998.[7][8]

      In December 2000, Durham revealed secret FBI documents that convinced a judge to vacate the 1968 murder convictions of Enrico Tameleo, Joseph Salvati, Peter J. Limone and Louis Greco because they had been framed by the agency. In 2007, the documents helped Salvati, Limone, and the families of the two other men, who had died in prison, win a $101.7 million civil judgment against the government.[9]

      Durham also led a series of high-profile prosecutions in Connecticut against the New England Mafia and corrupt politicians, including former governor John G. Rowland.[9]

      From 2008 to 2012, Durham also served as the Acting U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia.[7]

      On November 1, 2017, he was nominated by President Donald Trump to serve as U.S. Attorney for Connecticut.[10] On February 16, 2018, his nomination was confirmed by voice vote of the Senate. He was sworn in on February 22, 2018.[7]

    **Copied from somewhere**

    Everybody already forgot what Barr testified to under oath to Kamala Harris when she DEMANDED to know why he refused to recuse himself from all SpyGate/Muller-related investigations. And not just Barr. She demanded to know why ROSENSTEIN did not recuse himself.
    Do you remember?
    Rosenstein was ***cleared*** by the DOJ Ethics Office to have this DUAL ROLE as both supervisor of the RussiaGate/Mueller investigation AND witness against key SpyGate plotters like James Comey & Andrew McCabe…
    I mean, Barr uses everything but SIGNAL FLAGS to tell Sen. Harris THERE IS NO CONFLICT OF INTEREST HERE FOR ROD ROSENSTEIN. He was cleared for this dual role before he was ever sworn in as Deputy Attorney General back on April 25, 2017.
    And she doesn’t get it.
    Rosenstein was carefully selected, carefully prepared, and carefully CLEARED by all the right people to both:
    1) manage the RussiaGate investigation and
    2) testify against the SpyGate plotters as a witness at their trials.
    That was back in MAY of this year, Barr says this.

    Here’s Harris demanding to know why Barr is still refusing to recuse himself from all SpyGate-related matters at the DOJ:
    Barr says he has no conflict of interest, and Harris can’t specifically name any either.
    He asks Harris point blank “What’s my conflict of interest?” and gets back a vague accusation of ‘bias’.
    Then watch what Barr does next.
    He points out he’s not the only decision maker.
    Barr says Rosenstein is also making decisions about the SpyGate/Mueller investigations.
    Harris thinks she’s just trapped him.
    HE brought up Rosenstein, and now she’s gonna swing her trap shut and capture him.

    ROSENSTEIN IS A KEY WITNESS!!! Harris shrieks. ***HOW*** can Rosenstein be allowed to continue to be a decisionmaker on the RussiaGate/Mueller investigation when he’s a key witness in getting James Comey FIRED as FBI Director?
    Understand what is fueling Harris’s fury here.

    Both Barr & Rosenstein together AGREED that the lame ass “obstruction” charge that Mueller & his team didn’t have the guts to file themselves but instead punted upstairs for the AG/DAG to rule on should be shitcanned.

    Harris is FURIOUS that Barr not only refused to recuse himself from making the decision to toss the obstruction charge against the President, she’s mad Barr allowed Rosenstein to be involved in this charging decision.

    Now watch how Harris tries to trap Barr here:
    She demands to know if Barr ***consulted with the DOJ Ethics Office*** before he allowed Rosenstein to participate in this decision to toss the Mueller Special Counsel’s exotic obstruction charge.

    Barr drops the mother of all MOAB’S here.
    Here’s what he tells her:
    Try to grasp the full import of what Barr says here.

    Back before April 25, 2017, before he was sworn in as DAG, the question of “What if Rosenstein, while running the Russian investigation, ends up having to be a witness AGAINST OTHER PEOPLE IN THE DOJ/FBI?” was examined.
    The DOJ Ethics officials ***carefully examined*** this question of could Rosenstein be both in charge of running the Russian investigation AND later act as a witness against other people involved in that investigation, and they came to the conclusion that….
    While it may have gone right over KAMALA HARRIS’ head, Rod Rosenstein was cleared of any potential conflicts of interest arising from his running the Russian investigation and later TESTIFYING AS A WITNESS against other federal DOJ/FBI officials involved in that investigation.
    And now it’s December 2019, Barr revealed this back in May, over seven months ago, and most people still don’t have the first freaking clue what he said in his testimony.
    I told you Rosenstein was very carefully hand picked for the most thankless job in America for over 2 1/2 years: to be dropped into a nest of vipers, give them all the rope they wanted, spy on them and then TESTIFY against them when the time came.
    And the Ethics Office weighed in on whether he could do that before he ever took the job and they decided he could.

    He can run the RussiaGate investigation AND testify as a witness against Comey, McCabe, Strzok & all the others later after leaving the DOJ.

    Your thoughts on this?? So Rosenstein IS a good guy???

    My reaction to most “news” is anger at how little information is being given to the public about Spygate, and the blatant mischaracterization of even that little bit. I have a close friend who is a complete Trump-hater, but he and I amicably insult each other. He thinks I get information from “conspiracy sites” online, while he gets his from “real” news like CNN!

    I told him to imagine we were watching a baseball game, and we are each listening with earphones to commentary on the game. I said “You are listening to people who are trying to convince you that you should actually be watching a soccer game because they hate baseball. The people I am listening to are trying to figure out the signs between the opposing team’s Pitcher and Catcher!” I thought it was a pretty good simile, and it seemed to pique his curiosity.

    They seem to ignore valued legal commenters such as ristvan and hokkada(?) et al who caution patience and give reasonable (IMO) explanations why documents CANNOT be exposed to the public yet and why something as HUGE as this takes time.

  7. snowfalling says:

    I like both messaging ways of Sundance and ristvan. Though ristvan said he disagree with the final premise of this post like a few others previously.

    In my perspectives, I agree with both in a sense that they both are necessary for the course. In a normal working system, what ristvan said is the reasonable routine, at least, that is expected. There is a premise, the system is working normally and the people execute as law’s required. No matter what we want Rule of Law. Do right things and do them right. The rational and patience that ristvan presented are very much appreciated.

    Now that we know the government, particularly, DOJ, FBI, CIA and Congress have systematically corrupted together for long time, but we don’t have sufficient information to know whether or not Barr and Durham will do it.

    It is this situation that Sundance keeping positive pressure on Barr is very necessary and visionary. He/She sends messages not only to Barr but to all people, including the corrupted, WHY it needs to be done. By revealing truths, status and impacts, his/her messages enlighten more and more people. It actually helps Barr’s work for people will be more prepared. I believe Sundance’s patience is no-ordinary for he/she has been fighting so many years and continues the great efforts.

    Deep respect for all who are fighting to save our Republic.

      I am not a Trusty Planner. I am also neither an optimist nor a pessimist. I made my money and reputation by being a REALIST, and juking on a dime when surprised by an unanticipated turn of real events.

      Although I never smirk, if I did it would definitely be Ivy League—three Harvard degrees, all with honors or better. Not your Stereotypical Walmart Deplorable. (Although at my Wisconsin dairy farm [second home] we shopped Walmart extensively for several decades.)

      Dunno about Wray. Almost all the main FBI Spygate perps are now gone, and his job is to manage the FBI day to day plus institute IG suggested process reforms. Those are seldom visible except to direct superiors like Barr. PDJT chose Barr, and Barr seems to have confidence in Wray. IMO, if something were serious amiss, PDJT would have already acted on Wray like he did with Comey. Since dunno, but know that PDJT probably does (NEVER AGAIN), am much more relaxed about Wray than many here at CTH.

    With respect to Carter Page, I believe was a plant, but not by the CIA, he was planted by Adm. Rogers and Company. We now know that the day after the carter page FISA was approved that Adm Rogers went to the FISC and let loose with the corruption that he had uncovered while auditing the 702s.
    I had a hard time reconciling Carter Pages’ personality and always felt he were far too smart to be chosen as the stepping stone for FISA into the Trump Campaign, that is unless he wanted to be chosen to be the stepping stone.
    Reading his early paper on secrecy between the Legislative and Executive branches I felt he had a very good grasp on the need for secrecy based on Integrity and that the laws could not adequately capture the balance needed for the country to succeed with the executive branch leading and the legislative feeling they were entitled to know everything the Executive branch was working on. He just seemed like the perfect person to let a FISA warrant get charged to him. Whatever it was, I think there is more to Carter Page than we know or he lets onto.
    my 2 cents

    Shut it down and break it into little pieces and scatter it to the wind. Best example of the vast number of corrupt rank and file is the Roger Stone raid. Probably 50 or more field agents were either sold a false threat assessment resulting in SWAT teams, helicopters and boats or involved 50 rank and file who knew how overboard, extreme and wrongful the means by which Stone was arrested was. My point, not a single whistleblower on the issue of that grave abuse of force and law enforcement powers and that’s without even mentioning the leak to CNN. Not one lousy FBI dissenting voice and if there were any, has since leaked the facts of that abuse to an honest press. Shut it all down now!
