Declassified DOJ Letter to FISA Court Highlights Severe Institutional Corruption – DOJ Blames FBI For Spygate…

Amid a series of documents released by the Senate Judiciary Committee [SEE HERE] there is a rather alarming letter from the DOJ to the FISA Court in July 2018 that points toward an institutional cover-up.   [Link to Letter]

Before getting to the substance of the letter, it’s important to put the release in context.  After the FISA Court reviewed the DOJ inspector general report, the FISC ordered the DOJ-NSD to declassify and release documents related to the Carter Page FISA application.

In the cover letter for this specific release to the Senate Judiciary and Senate Intelligence committees, the DOJ cites the January 7, 2020, FISA court order:

Keep in mind that prior to this release only the FISA court had seen this letter from the DOJ-National Security Division (DOJ-NSD).  As we walk through the alarming content of this letter I think you’ll identify the motive behind the FISC order to release it.

First, the letter in question was sent by the DOJ-NSD to the FISA Court on July 12, 2018.  It is critical to keep the date of the letter in mind as we review the content.

Aside from the date the important part of the first page is the motive for sending it. The DOJ is telling the court in July 2018: based on what they know the FISA application still contains “sufficient predication for the Court to have found probable cause” to approve the application.   The DOJ is defending the Carter Page FISA application as still valid.

However, it is within the justification of the application that alarm bells are found. On page six the letter identifies the primary participants behind the FISA redactions:

As you can see: Christopher Steele is noted as “Source #1”.  Glenn Simpson of Fusion-GPS is noted as “identified U.S. person” or “business associate”; and Perkins Coie is the “U.S-based law firm.”

Now things get very interesting.

On page #8 when discussing Christopher Steele’s sub-source, the DOJ notes the FBI found him to be truthful and cooperative.

This is an incredibly misleading statement to the FISA court because what the letter doesn’t say is that 18-months earlier the sub-source, also known in the IG report as the “primary sub-source”, informed the FBI that the material attributed to him in the dossier was essentially junk.

Let’s look at how the IG report frames the primary sub-source, and specifically notice the FBI contact and questioning took place in January 2017 (we now know that date to be January 12, 2017):

Those interviews with Steele’s primary sub-source took place in January, March and May of 2017; and clearly the sub-source debunked the content of the dossier itself.

Those interviews were 18-months, 16-months and 14-months ahead of the July 2018 DOJ letter to the FISC.   The DOJ-NSD says the sub-source was “truthful and cooperative” but the DOJ doesn’t tell the court the content of the truthfulness and cooperation.  Why?

Keep in mind this letter to the court was written by AAG John Demers in July 2018.  Jeff Sessions was Attorney General, Rod Rosenstein was Deputy AG; Christopher Wray was FBI Director, David Bowditch is Deputy, and Dana Boente is FBI chief-legal-counsel.

Why would the DOJ-NSD not be forthcoming with the FISA court about the primary sub-source?  This level of disingenuous withholding of information speaks to an institutional motive.

By July 2018 the DOJ clearly knew the dossier was full of fabrications, yet they withheld that information from the court and said the predicate was still valid.  Why?

It doesn’t take a deep-weeds-walker to identify the DOJ motive.

In July 2018 Robert Mueller’s investigation was at its apex.

This letter justifying the application and claiming the current information would still be a valid predicate therein, speaks to the 2018 DOJ needing to retain the validity of the FISA warrant…. My research suspicion is that the DOJ needed to protect evidence Mueller had already extracted from the fraudulent FISA authority.  That’s the motive.

In July 2018 if the DOJ-NSD had admitted the FISA application and all renewals were fatally flawed Robert Mueller would have needed to withdraw any evidence gathered as a result of its exploitation.  The DOJ in 2018 was protecting Mueller’s poisoned fruit.

If the DOJ had been honest with the court, there’s a strong possibility some, perhaps much, of Mueller evidence gathering would have been invalidated… and cases were pending.  The solution: mislead the court and claim the predication was still valid.

This is not simply a hunch, because that motive also speaks to why the FISC would order the current DOJ to release the letter.

Remember, in December the FISC received the IG Horowitz report; and they would have immediately noted the disparity between what IG Horowitz outlined about the FBI investigating Steele’s sub-source, as contrast against what the DOJ told them in July 2018.

The DOJ letter is a transparent misrepresentation when compared to the information in the Horowitz report. Hence, the court orders the DOJ to release the July letter so that everyone, including congressional oversight and the public can see the misrepresentation.

The court was misled; now everyone can see it.

The content of that DOJ-NSD letter, and the subsequent disparity, points to an institutional cover-up; and as a consequence the FISC also ordered the DOJ to begin an immediate sequestration effort to find all the evidence from the fraudulent FISA application.  The proverbial fruit from the poisonous tree…. And yes, that is ongoing.

Moving on…

Two more big misstatements within the July letter appear on page #9.  The first is the DOJ claiming that only after the application was filed did they become aware of Christopher Steele working for Fusion-GPS and knowing his intent was to create opposition research for the Hillary Clinton campaign.  See the top of the page.

According to the DOJ-NSD claim the number four ranking official in the DOJ, Bruce Ohr, never told them he was acting as a conduit for Christopher Steele to the FBI.   While that claim is hard to believe, in essence what the DOJ-NSD is saying in that paragraph is that the FBI hoodwinked the DOJ-NSD by not telling them where the information for the FISA application was coming from.  The DOJ, via John Demers, is blaming the FBI.

The second statement, equally as incredulous, is at the bottom of page nine where the DOJ claims they had no idea Bruce Ohr was talking to the FBI throughout the entire time any of the FISA applications were being submitted.  October 2016 through June 2017.

In essence the claim there is that Bruce Ohr was working with the FBI and never told anyone in the DOJ throughout 2016 and all the way past June 29th of 2017.  That denial seems rather unlikely; however, once again the DOJ-NSD is putting the FBI in the crosshairs and claiming they knew nothing about the information pipeline.

Bruce Ohr, whose wife was working for Fusion-GPS and assisting Christopher Steele with information, was interviewed by the FBI over a dozen times as he communicated with Steele and fed his information to the FBI.  Yet the DOJ claims they knew nothing about it.

Again, just keep in mind this claim by the DOJ-NSD is being made in July 2018, six months after Bruce Ohr was demoted twice (December 2017 and January 2018).  If what the DOJ is saying is true, well, the FBI was completely off-the-rails and rogue.

Neither option speaks well about the integrity of either institution; and quite frankly I don’t buy the DOJ-NSD spin.  Why?  The reason is simple, the DOJ is claiming in the letter the predication was still valid… if the DOJ-NSD genuinely didn’t know about the FBI manipulation, they would be informing the court in 2018 the DOJ no longer supported the FISA application due to new information.  They did not do that.  Instead, in July 2018, they specifically told the court the predicate was valid, yet the DOJ-NSD knew it was not.

The last point about the July 2018 letter is perhaps the most jarring.  Again, keep in mind when it was written Chris Wray is FBI Director, David Bowditch is Deputy and Dana Boente is FBI chief legal counsel.

Their own FBI reports, by three different INSD and IG investigations; had turned up seriously alarming evidence going back to the early 2017 time-frame; the results of which ultimately led to the DC FBI office losing all of their top officials; and knowing the letter itself was full of misleading and false information about FBI knowledge in/around Christopher Steele; this particular sentence is alarming:

“The FBI has reviewed this letter and confirmed its factual accuracy?”

Really?

As we have just shared, the July 2018 letter itself is filled with factual inaccuracies, misstatements and intentional omissions.  So who exactly did the “reviewing”?

This declassification release raises more questions than any other in recent memory.  Perhaps AG Bill Barr will now start asking some rather hard questions to FBI Director Christopher Wray.

Here’s the Full Letter.  I strongly suggest everyone read the 14-pages slowly.  If you know the background, this letter is infuriating…

    We have seen/heard/read that once Senate confirmed, a person can get in another position without going thru senate confirmation again. Is that just with a current POTUS or Senate, or could Trump scour the still alive people from maybe Reagan admin and see if he can find some real workhorses who would like to kick some butt? I know Barr had served before. Was he confirmed with the current senate or was that just a formality?

    It sounds like a whole lot of lying going on that had absolutely nothing to do with AG Barr. It does appear to be something that Sessions, Rosenstein, and Wray should have been on top of. Despite Sessions’ spot-on rejection of more jobs being given away to potential immigrants during a pandemic, his early recusal and subsequent blind eye is good reason for Trump to reject him.

    Rosenstein and Wray, though, appear to be participants in this fiasco. I do not see how they could claim not to know. Since they were in charge, not knowing could only be achieved by ordering everyone to tell them nothing. Wray truly should be released. The best one can say about him is that he’s incompetent. But, the president’s hands are tied by the Senate’s refusal to confirm nominees.

    One thing that bothers me is that senators and representatives and staffers seemed to know the truth on this all along. They were tipped off under the table. The liberals proceeded to lie about the facts. The conservatives proceeded to heavily hint as to the facts.

    I’m offended by that to be honest about it. I see no national security concerns that should have kept this as classified information. It was only done so to protect politicians and bureaucrats.

    High Level Questions

    1. Barr had to authorize this. Right? Grenell had the actual levers, and Barr said “Bombs away”?

    (It wasn’t released Friday afternoon… they want us to see it.)

    2. What’s next?

    3. MSM quiet – still trying to figure out how to play it?

    4. Is this the ammo needed to fire Chris Wray?

    5. Is this the start of The Big Ugly?

    It will be interesting to hear tik tok Joe diGenova’s take … he was correct that Ric Grenell was a game changer.

    Note: not sure why Sundance skips it, but Joe has said Durham has a GJ impaneled (in Connecticut), he said this over a year ago. George Papadopoulos also said he appeared before a GJ.

    I think most of us see, Sundance’s logic as undeniable. He has successfully painted a portrait of political corruption unequaled in American history.

    I now have a question that concerns me even more. Did the Deep State create another scandal or should I say homicidal act even worse, in an attempt to cover up this political corruption? Did they release or help to release a virus in order to remove President Trump from office? Were they willing to allow people within our country to be killed by this virus In order to avoid answering charges of political corruption?

      And if so, is that not justifiable of a massive investigation using at least the NSA database to see who might have been talking about all of this with who as early as last summer, well before there was any there there??

More probable, Dems and their MSM are using the pandemic to create a distraction from Obama and HRC’ corruption in the FBI, DoJ, administration and especially in the DNC. Still troubling is the massive and sustained two year cover up by the abuse of the intelligence community “classification system” as virtually all of the secret and top secrecy classification has NOTHING to do with protecting sources or national security. It rather has everything to to with hiding corruption by dirty cops in the FBI and corruption writ large in the Obama DoJ, White House and Administration. Accountability???

      If the polls clearly show that PT will pick up 5-6 new GOP Senators in NOV and PT had his replacement pick lined up for the gig, I would be more than happy to sacrifice McConnell. However, realistically, I doubt the polls will show that, much less show it clearly. I’m confident PT will be re-elected and even think we’ll probably gain seats (how many I’m not sure… there aren’t that many toss-up races for us to get unless everything blows wide open to the extent it did with Roy Moore, only in our favor this time)… but I wouldn’t bet on 5 or 6 seats and even if we did actually manage to pick up 5 or 6 seats, I wouldn’t bet on 5 or 6 being clearly indicated by the polls. That’s partially because the polls tend to favor Dems, but also because if we win that many seats, some of the results will defy conventional wisdom and the polls are just less likely to pick up on major upsets, no matter which party that favors. McConnell is good at his job and he’s on the same page as PT and MAGA on some important issues (the judiciary is massively important and he’s both simpatico and highly competent when it comes to that), so I doubt he’s going anywhere. That said, he IS weasel and I’d definitely prefer to have an effective MAGA person in there, but so much would have to line up for that to happen that I’d be really surprised to see it.

        1. release all the people illegally spied on by the 85% illegal political “unmasking” which Admiral Rogers forced the crooked FISC to admit. At least tell each US Person privately,, so they can sue for civil rights abuse. And even join together in a class action.

        2. Release all the US Citizens spied on by the fake, Constitutionally reprehensible “2 hop” rule from any of the 4 Fake FISAs (including fraudulent extensions) on carter page and President Trump. This could be thousands, or more. Again, private notice would be acceptable, and would be adequate for a class action against the DOJ, FBI, FISC and the individuals involved in intentional denial of civil rights under color of law 18 USC 242.

        Judicial Watch people are likely in the “2-hop spied on” FISA list, so they would make a good class action plaintiff.

        Any US Persons who can prove being in communication with Carter Page during the spy period(s) should be able to bring a class action suit on behalf of themselves and others in the class. They could use security cleared lawyers.

        I would expect a competent IG, once discovering this depth of corruption, would systematically review all 700 warrants in order to evaluate bias and/or political motive…IMHO, Horowitz issued another “half azzed” report simply stating ” Yeah, there’s a fire over there somewhere”.

      In a normal audit, you take a statistically significant sample, 30 to get 95% confidence. Then you test against controls. If you fail, you PULL ANOTHER 30 in case the first batch contained outliers (which can happen in a large population), and Repeat again if you fail, and eventually you test enough that you pass or you run out of population.

      In this case, the IG has an obligation to review more batches of FISA until he finds a batch that is entirely clean. I think he will end up reviewing all 700 and find flaws in every one. Failing 29/29 in a “random” pull does not bode well for the population of all FISAs.

    4. this Big Declass

    After the Footnotes were declassified: Buck Sexton: “Rep. Devin Nunes, R.-Calif., told “The Buck Sexton Show”on Thursday to expect additional criminal referrals after a declassified report shows the FBI relied on British spy Christopher Steele’s dossier to secure a FISA warrant despite warnings of a possible Russian disinformation campaign.”

    Based on this new declassified document IMO there are only two paths…..

    1) Barr and Durham case is far enough along or even complete to allow/support Grenell to release this document to prepare Americans for what is coming.

    2) Barr is not on board with the release but this is pressure being applied to get a move on or get ready for a change.

    Now with the Senate confirmation problem assuming PT is ready to make a change, PT can do this with just the stroke of his pen and it requires ZERO Senate participation/confirmation. It could be done and in place instantly.

    1) Slide Eugene Scalia over from Sec. of Labor to AG

    2) Because Sec. Scalia is already a confirmed Secretary and has already gone through the Senate confirmation process for the Sec of Labor position, no additional Senate approvals are needed.

    3) To help AG Scalia, appoint Sidney Powell as WH Justice Czar. (Note Obama appointed 45 Czars during his presidency)

    4) WH Appointees / Czars DO NOT Require Senate Confirmation so both Mr. Scalia and Ms. Powell can start next day if necessary.

    5) In her role as Justice Czar, Sidney works daily with Durham and the US Attorney’s from St. Louis, Pittsburgh and Brooklyn to allow a second set of eyes and to ensure all stones are being turned over.

    6) You provide both Mr. Scalia, Ms. Powell and Mr. Grenell with full declass authority to read and review all unredacted documents related to this coup.

    7) Because of Sidney’s past experience and knowledge of the DOJ and how it should work vs how it has been working, she is perfect to help AG Scalia bring about equal justice and real change within the DOJ and FBI.

    Now let me point out that we know Sidney reads AND occasionally posts here. I have been posting this option for months now and to date Sidney has never jumped in and said something like……

    Not going to happen or I’m not interested.

    So I hold out hope assuming PT wants to make a change but you got to admit a team of ………

    Scalia, Grenell and Powell would be a true kick ass team IMO.

  20. Just an initial observation of my first reading of this letter.

    1) the revelation that the papa d conversation with CHS was recorded with both of their knowledge. First time I ever heard that.

    2) it seems like the FBI is still trying to hide information by saying that some redactions are because of sequester.

    3) it seems as if they are both acknowledging and denying knowing that Ohr was talking to Steele.

    4) they had exculpatory information that they never shared with the court.

    5) they tried saying they shared with the court the Clinton angle when in fact they did not.

    The most important thing though is that this is great material in place of a sleeping pill. Off for nap time for me..

    SD: “Those interviews with Steele’s primary sub-source took place in January, March and May”
    And
    “Why would the DOJ-NSD not be forthcoming with the FISA court about the primary sub-source? This level of disingenuous withholding of information speaks to an institutional motive.
    ——————–
    One reason why those meetings w/ the sub-source might have been necessary was because the Oct. 2016 FISA surveillance didn’t reveal any new/additional information/evidence that would back-up the allegation. The Oct. warrant was about to run out. The FBI required new information to legally obtain a renewal of the warrant.

    So they re-interview the sub-source for new info to obtain renewals. Give me something! Give me something! Anything!!

    January 2017 meeting w/ source – January FISA renewal
    March meeting – April renewal
    April meeting – May renewal

    I couldn’t find the exact dates but I’m betting they were all before the next renewal.

      thanks ! The DOJ/FBI are clearly violating the FISC ethics requirements.
      They lied, fabricated a fake story that carter page was a russian agent despite CIA notice, fabricated barroom talk financed from hillary’s campaign, did not vet until after submission but learned before Warrant extension but never notified the FISC.

      The FISC is required to withdraw the purloined, tainted Warrant to protect its integrity, so it is not protecting the liars and participating in their illegal spying and civil rights abuse.

      Any honest Federal court would withdraw a tainted, lied-for, unsupportable Order. But the FISC has an extra-heavy duty to wothdraw its fake, lied-for Orders becuse its only reason for existence is to protect unrepresented US Citizens from illegal spying. Warrants based on lies, unvetted false evidence, and withheld evidence are an abomination, but this FISC continues to protect the perpetrators, unethical DOJ and liars by not withdrawing their fake Warrants.
      The FISC judges should be removed for lack of “good behavior” required for service under the Constitution.

    Declassification is to allow people to see and understand the reason for the indictments before the names of the indicted are released. It helps a lot if some of the criminal behavior is released by DOJ and others beforehand.

    Prepping is very important to keep the peace. The press coverage of COVID-19 can only occupy the nation for so long and we are about to embark on reopening the economy. People are still stuck in their houses and have more time to pay attention to alternative media. They are getting tired of the MSM propaganda.

    Just my opinion of course.

    And then they have the gall to whine and protest why Trump fired Sessions.

    Sessions was frequently seen having early morning breakfasts with Rosenstein in a DC restaurant. More info is constantly dribbling out every week why.

    And there are two more names way in the dust of the past that are sewer rats in this set-up plot too some way or other—Sydney Blumenthal and Cody Shearer. There were both undercover POS for Clinton.

    One or both of them was either feeding information to Steele or at the very least providing a pre-arranged 3rd leg of the triangle to get false garbage leaked to their friendly media so the FBI could say “aha” a source corroborating our ongoing findings of Trump Russia collusion.

    I’m quite confident these names are going to surface as being major players in the Comey/Brennan connection of the frame up plan. They’re both scum.

    And as far as Wray is concerned, I’d like to see him ejected headfirst out the front door of the FBI building by federal marshals.

    The first ‘spy on the US President’ extension was submitted February 7, 2017.
    When was it approved by the collaborating FISC?
    How long did it take the collaborating FISC to do its only job, to thoroughly review and question the ‘extension’ allegations to protect the civil rights of those thousands-to-millions of US Citizens involved in a Political Campaign, Transition Team, and White House Administration?
    February 7? Or later? Did the FISC just say “where do we sign?”, or did they even read it, much less carefully study it?
    How many then-pending Warrant Applications were there to read through, which were submitted before the February 7 ‘extension’ fraud? How long to read them all, thoroughly, before reviewing the fraudulent February 7 request?

    Does someone know the grant date for the February 7 ‘extension’ request? Is that the one that Wolfe texted to his mistress, which has a blanked-out date?

    The DOJ/FBI had an ethical obligation to immediately tell the FISC that the that carter page was a russian asset was fake, and that the ‘bar-talk’ evidence about PDJTwas bogus.
    The FISC has an ethical and constitutional obligation to withdraw (nunc pro tunc) all the faked FISAs and extensions, as being based on false evidence. No spy warrant based on false evidence should stand. Any honest court would withdraw an Order of the Court based on false evidence, lies, withholding of evidence, and ethical violations. But this FISC refuses to withdraw its fake FISA Warrants in order to protect the liars, fakers and unethical DOJ/FBI lawyers and evidence-swearers, in violation of their extra-heavy duty to protect the civil rights of unrepresented defendants in a secret Star Chamber Court.

    Doctor Who Discovered HIV Confident COVID-19 Was Created in a Lab!
    By Jared Harris Published April 17, 2020

    Professor Luc Montagnier, a central member of the team that identified HIV during the early days of the AIDS epidemic, is now bucking the media consensus on the novel coronavirus by claiming the pathogen was at least partially edited in a laboratory.

    According to research performed by Montagnier, a Nobel Prize winner, and his mathematician partner Jean-Claude Perez, SARS-CoV-2 contains sequences of the human immunodeficiency virus — HIV.

    Montagnier revealed his reasoning on a French medical podcast Thursday, according to the French newspaper Le Parisien.

      In my opinion, this article is simply an attempt of the Communist Chinese Party to cover their rear, and misdirect the narrative. Evidence has been revealed that makes no doubt that this virus was manipulated by man, and had been worked on at the Wuhan lab. Actually, our CDC had been paying them to work with this virus for over five years.

      Everyone who works in China, is controlled by China (at least those who want to live). According to Wikipedia:
      Luc Antoine Montagnier : “Is a French virologist and joint recipient with Françoise Barré-Sinoussi and Harald zur Hausen of the 2008 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for his discovery of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).[4] A long-time researcher at the Pasteur Institute in Paris, he currently works as a full-time professor at Shanghai Jiao Tong University in China.[5]”

      I also recall a significant amount of controversy over the so-called “discovery of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). It appears that most of those who have been connected in the upper echelons concerning HIV, are highly suspect.

      Winning a Nobel Prize has never been based on character. IE: (Barry) B.Obama, Arafat, etc.

    – lumping in extraneous issues – like 5 paragraphs on Barr being allegedly biased
    – about 2 paragraphs on a pause in the Biden Crime Family affairs

    Amazing, time consuming job to get all this data and analysis put together for your readers; the analysis is excellent and helps me to understand the scope and labyrinth. I am working on a Mind Map so I can visualize. I am optimistic related to Barr, Grenell and Durham. Regarding these newly declassified documents, there are so many false flags, that without CTH, I would not know which end is up — the national media no longer covers this story. it is difficult to get to the true “motive,” but “protect” Obama and “cover” for Clinton, per sundance, is exactly the motive(s). I do agree that PDJT is now the master of the chess board and checkmate is coming. Americas on both sides should be frightened as hell that this could happen to a presidential candidate republican or democrat,. If Barr and Durham fail, Rome will fall.
