CNN Journalist Who Pushed Original Dossier Story Now Covers Invalid FISA Application That Relied on Dossier…

Did the original scope memo from Rod Rosenstein in May 2017 authorize Team Mueller to investigate allegations in the Steele Dossier?…  Allegations that were already debunked by the FBI four months earlier in mid-January 2017?

There’s more than a little irony in this brief CNN soundbite where Evan Perez is discussing the FBI’s fraudulent FISA applications.  On January 10th, 2017, it was the same Evan Perez along with CNN’s Jim Sciutto, who were operating as conduits from the FBI ‘small group’ to push the Steele Dossier as a valid investigative document. {Go Deep}

Evan Perez, Jim Sciutto, Jake Tapper and Carl Bernstein were working together with the FBI group headed by James Comey, to push the legitimacy of the Steele Dossier.

While the CNN crew was coordinating with the FBI; literally two days before the FBI renewed the FISA warrant on January 12th; and shortly after CNN pushed the narrative; FBI agents visited the U.K, interviewed Steele’s primary sub-source and determined the dossier was garbage.   It was the Steele Dossier being identified as garbage that made the FISA renewals invalid…. the same Dossier that Evan Perez was promoting in 2017:

.

Inspector General Michael Horowitz informs us in his report the FBI determined the dossier was bunk “shortly after” the January 12, 2017, FISA renewal.

CNN reported on the Dossier on January 10th, 2017.  Buzzfeed published the Dossier hours later as an outcome of the January 10th CNN report.  We now know the FBI was leaking this information for this purpose.  Less than 48 hours later, the FISA application that relied on the Dossier was renewed by the FBI on January 12th, 2017.

Shortly after the FBI renewed the FISA, FBI agents interviewed Steele’s primary sub-source and determined the Dossier was junk.   That is why the DOJ is currently informing the FISA Court all activity after that interview made the FISA applications invalid.   The FBI knew in mid-January 2017 the Dossier was debunked.

Without the Steele Dossier, there would be no FISA warrant.

The Steele Dossier was the investigative virus the FBI wanted and needed inside the system. To get the virus into official status, they used the FISA application as the delivery method and injected it into Carter Page. The FBI already knew Carter Page; essentially Carter Page was irrelevant, what they needed was the FISA warrant and the surveillance justifications it provided.  The Dossier was how to get it. {Go Deep}.

Fusion GPS was not hired simply to research Donald Trump, the intelligence community was already doing a variety of surveillance and spy operations. The intelligence community needed Fusion GPS to give them a plausible justification, to obtain a surveillance warrant, to cover pre-existing surveillance and spy operations.

Fusion-GPS gave the FBI the justification they needed for a FISA warrant with the Steele Dossier.  Ultimately that’s why the Steele Dossier is so important; without it, the DOJ and FBI are naked with their FISA-702 database abuse and 2016 surveillance operations.

That’s why the FBI small group, which later transitioned into the Mueller team, were so strongly committed to -and defending- the formation of the Steele Dossier and its dubious content.  The Steele Dossier contained the cover-story and justification for the overall surveillance operation.  Ultimately, without the dossier they wouldn’t get the Mueller investigation…. Everything was contingent upon that Steele Dossier.

Perhaps the FBI knowing the Dossier was garbage in mid-January 2017 is why we are not permitted to see the May 2017 scope memo written by DAG Rod Rosenstein to authorize Robert Mueller.  Does the original scope memo authorize Team Mueller to investigate the allegations in the Dossier?…  Allegations that were already debunked four months earlier?

The original FISA application was October 21st, 2016. The first FISA renewal was January 12, 2017 (84 days from origination). The second renewal was April 7, 2017 (85 days from prior renewal). The third renewal was on June 29th, 2017 (83 days from prior renewal).

The DOJ has now attested to the FISC the FISA application on April 7, 2017, and the FISA application of June 29th were invalid. However, the DOJ has not taken a position on the validity of the original application, Oct 21, 2016, or the first renewal of January 12, 2017.

The FBI has agreed to “sequester” all information and evidence received as an outcome of all the FISA warrants issued against Carter Page. Meaning, all material, in any court proceeding or subsequent secondary warrant on another target, application, filing, motion, prosecution or downstream use of the information gathered and obtained; the FBI will now assemble all materials, from any location, that stemmed from the Carter Page FISA warrants.

In essence, the FBI will now look and retrieve any evidence that stemmed as an outcome of the Carter Page FISA warrant. Some of this material *may* (perhaps likely) will be in the Special Counsel Mueller investigation.

[ie. a proverbial search for the fruit of a poisonous tree. Where is it?]

Once the sequestration has taken place, the DOJ will then be able to determine to the court what collateral impacts they have identified.

The DOJ has yet to inform the court how exactly they plan to do this, or when they anticipate to have completed the task. However, the FBI has agreed to undertake this sequestration for ALL of the FISA applications, not just the two renewals they now admit are invalid. READ:

The issue of the validity for the October 21st, 2016, originating FISA application; and/or the issue of the validity for the first renewal January 12th, 2017, is not yet determined.

The FISC brief outlines the Office of the Inspector General (OIG), who is currently doing a review of all FISA applications, will be the one assist the DOJ in reaching that conclusion.

Worth noting in the second paragraph (above): “pending further review of the OIG report and the outcome of any investigations or litigation.” This was a statement made by the DOJ in response to the FISC. It is possible the ongoing investigation by U.S. Attorney John Durham is part of this encompassing statement.

The second page of the order by Judge Boasberg is essentially him relaying the law surrounding FISA applications; warning the DOJ that false material submissions -which the DOJ has just admitted- are illegal; and Boasberg wanting to know answers to the same questions many of us have.

Essentially, Judge Boasberg is asking: what did the FBI do with the Title-1 surveillance warrant they received from the court? What material did they collect? Was that material then used in other proceedings and: “disseminated to DOJ prosecutors and other persons outside the FBI”?

The presiding fisa judge also wants to know what the DOJ is doing. Explain what “further review of the OIG report” means? Inform the court what “related investigations and litigation” pertains to, etc:

[Link to Court]

A note of caution. It seems incredulous the DOJ cannot apply the same determination of invalid construct to the original FISA application and first renewal. However, the key issue is with the Steele Dossier – the essential evidence underpinning the FISA itself; and the key question is when did the FBI and/or DOJ know with certainty the Steele Dossier was unfounded and did not merit legal inclusion for the warrant?

By their current admissions, as outlined by Judge Boasberg, the DOJ is admitting that between January 12th and April 7th current investigators are certain there was sufficient information debunking the Steele Dossier, known to the former FBI and DOJ officials, such that no further application (renewal) should have taken place.

Interestingly this timeline and DOJ admission would include the Mueller investigation use of any FISA derived material or evidence when it began May 17, 2017; that is, if the Mueller probe used the Carter Page FISA evidence for any derivative warrant therein.

It seems likely the Mueller probe did use the Page warrant, as former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe and former DOJ Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein authorized the June 29, 2017, final renewal AFTER the special counsel was in place. That renewal has been admitted as invalid. There could be considerable consequences.

    These agenda driven sleazebags always talk about the warrant against unknown and irrelevant Carter Page. Who cares? He’s a nobody. What they never say is that warrant, because of its nature which has been explained numerous times here by Sundance, allows direct surveillance of President Trump and his closest associates even going back in time a number of years before he even ran for office. That is why it is significant. They were spying electronically on President Trump into the summer of 2017.

      And they were creating files of potential crimes that they found. The court decided it was okay and could continue because it had only been used for parallel construction once, in the case of a pedo. This shocking tidbit can be found in the highly redacted April 2017 Colyer report of NSA search abuses.

      Carter Page gave a lecture at a Russian university in July. His communications with Russians can be collected with minimization without a warrant.

      Its reported that the Russians offered him some type of think tank opportunity. If he acted on the opportunity, he moves toward becoming a legitimate foreign agent. Law allows bulk warrant approval, with annual renewal, allowing collection of all communication with 2 hops. Could this be the August denial?

      In October, before the warrant is approved CP writes a letter to Comey, opening all of Comeys communications to review once the warrant is approved. Is this what the court wants sequestered?

    I think Horowitz’s characterization of the January 12, 2017 warrant renewal says a lot: “The FBI renewed the warrant.”

    This is wrong on 2 levels. First, the FBI has no power to renew any such warrant. Only the FISA Court can do that. Second, the FBI does not even apply to the Court for FISA renewals. The DOJ does. Yes, DOJ has FBI co-signatories. But is it DOJ-NSD that bears ultimate responsibility for such applications.

    Entirely apart from the misconduct “7 levels down in,” or even all the way to the top of, the FBI. DOJ/NSD should NEVER have proceeded with any of the Page warrant applications.

    Entirely apart from the misconduct of DOJ/NSD and the FBI, no FISA Judge should ever have approved ANY of these warrants.

      Absolutely correct. There are 3 parts to this puzzle.

      FBI=Cops asking for a warrant.
      DOJ= Prosecutors verifying there is probable cause to request a warrant.
      FISA=Court approves a warrant by reviewing the prosecution affidavit. If judge agrees there is enough probable cause to digitally rape a defendant of every known action defendant has done in his life.

      3 parts of our justice system were absolutely corrupt to have allowed the 4 Fisa warrants.

      Dossier was unverified= no probable cause for a warrant.

      Carter Paige was CIA/FBI that was accused of being a spy for Russia. No evidence ever produced to show probable cause. No prosecution of Carter Page in my opnion, means he was a plant in Team Trump.

      No matter which way you turn this to look from a different angle, you come up with same conclusion.

      3 parts of Justice system where weaponized to remove President Trump from office. A SEDITIOUS Conspiracy to Committ a COUP

        We will be learning more, likely with what the DOJ is forced to disclose to Judge Boasburg in Feb 5.

        It will take a while, because it will be redacted upon disclosure, but it will eventually become known.

        Durham will be educating us in the coming months, as well.

    Some have stated that Carter Page is irrelevant in the entire FISA sham. I disagree and have stated so many times. Carter Page is the lynch pin that drove the entire “coup” attempt. He WAS the plant in the Trump campaign (probably by CIA or State) and was used to obtain the warrant for surveillance of members of the Trump team.

    I watch him appearing on various media sites as the “victim” of this coup. Victim, my foot! Without his role as first cog in the wheel, the wheel would not have turned! Carter Page is a spy, nothing more, nothing less! What is the current judgment for spies in the USA?

    Clearly someone questioned the validity of it enough to send someone overseas to investigate.

    It would be interesting to see internal emails or communications showing when they started discussing their suspicions.
