Lee Smith Discusses Latest Flynn Documents: “Why was the FBI Holding Them Back So Long?”…

In this episode Jan Jekielek sits down with investigative journalist Lee Smith, author of “The Plot Against the President: The True Story of How Congressman Devin Nunes Uncovered the Biggest Political Scandal in U.S. History”, to discuss the latest revelations in the unsealed Flynn documents.

Lee Smith asks why did the FBI hold back these documents; and what does that say about the current mindset within the FBI?

          The “bad apples” at the top picked the rest of the “apples” — The OKC Bombing was covered up as to the involvement of the FBI in allowing people they controlled to be involved in it and execute it, bombs blew the building out not in as was conclusively proven by the Air Force General, this was completely covered up until this day but the research has clearly shown this happened, others were involved with McVeigh and the FBI was has blood on its hands, of children — it is one of the biggest cover ups in US History right to the present Coup full of more FBI criminal activity — no “good apples” in OKC nor here now. 911? They basically were told it was going to happen and ignored it and then Mueller covered that up…the entire FBI should be disbanded, they are actually a threat to the Citizens of the USA as we see with General Flynn– criminals with badges — they can take the CIA with them when they leave….

              I agree on Whitey. I thought the same thing when I heard about his death. My first thought was, “Wow Mulehead’s corruption is widespread”. I believe he was taken out by the Govt because too much bad info was coming out about Mulehead around the same time as Whitey’s death. He probably had some stories he could tell about Mulehead to further discredit him.

              While it may be too late for Whitey to tell the story, it’s not too late to expose Mulehead for all his corrupt activities. I don’t think we’ve heard the last of that story.

            “bombs blew the building out not in”

            Lots of evidence of a cover-up at the time, covered in the old “The Spotlight” weekly paper. The biggest “tell”, IMO, was that every shovelful of debris was send to a secure landfill in guarded dump trucks so that debris could not be sent to independent labs to check for other explosive residue.

            That, and air is an inefficient coupling mechanism for explosive force. So a fertilizer truck bomb parked out in the street could mess up the face of the building, but not take out one of those ~3 foot thick columns in front, etc.

            According to an audio tale analysis and investigative reporting:
            The Kent State Massacre was likely caused by an altercation by an overzealous FBI asset photographing students. FBI asset hit 1-2 students, fired several shots to discourage responders, half a minute before the National Guard volleyed, apparently thinking they were under attack. FBI again.

            Of course the FBI’s history predates Oky City. My only point is not all have been inept, corrupt, “just following orders” or any of the other aberrations we have seen in recent years.

            As I have said elsewhere, without in the least ignoring, minimizing or approving of the politicizing of the FBI and other agencies and individuals that has resulted in the miscarriages of justice and even criminal acts we are now discovering in the Flynn and other cases, we all need to be a bit more circumspect in our finger pointing.

            These excesses and crimes are but more evidence of the general decline of “virtue” (in the broadest and most profound meaning of the term as understood and used by our Founders) in our entire society. Indeed, we are all to some extent guilty of this if we are honest as to our own attitudes and behaviors.

            If we were to honestly compare the “culture” in which each of us now live and are a functional part with that of previous years, I think it is beyond cavil that in virtually every aspect and measure, the attiudes and behaviors that predominate today are less “virtuous” than in previous years and eras. This negative progression away from Judeo-Christian values and principles and toward atheistic relative moralism has adversely affected each of us such that we all share to one degree or another responsibility for our “cultural” decline.

            As such, all of what we are seeing in terms of hyper-partisanship by progressivists, their willingness to destroy our economy to further their dual agendas of getting rid of POTUS and furthering their anti-Constitutional and socialist/communist aims.

            We also are witness to their wanton immorality reflected in their positions on abortion, sexual perversion, pornography, sanctity of marriage etc. that is both a natural progression of the atheistic subversion of our traditional Judeo -Christian value system.

            So thorough and incremental has this transformation been that virtually all of us reflects to one extent or another some of these negative attributes whether in the coarseness of our communication, our increasing reliance on relative moralism to attempt to rationalize or justify doing things that in the past we would have immediately recognized as “wrong,” our blindness to, or even approval of, so much of the blatant immorality around us ranging from couples living together without benefit of marriage to sexual perversion to even mass murder of infants through abortion. If this seems far-fetched, just reflect on what is provided for our “entertainment on TV or movies and whether most of us absorb what we are seeing and hearing without a second thought.

                  You think so? Ten minutes on (anti) social media in various “conservative” groups or the comments in support of some conservative proposition suggests to me just the opposite to your assumption. The language is coarse and often obscene, sometimes punctuated by “jokes” about drug use (after all it is “only” weed), extramarital sex, references to vacuous and perverse “entertainment” that they apparently closely follow, ambivalence on abortion, homosexuality, homosexual “marriage,” myriad other sexual perversions and aberrations, etc., etc.

                  I see you assigning blame, as it were, seeming to me because all of “us conservatives and many treepers” have become part of the problem but won’t admit or accept it. I think most know it’s there, but how are we, at this point, to make a change. What I’m not seeing from you, is an offering up of any solutions or avenues to change our now perverted mindsets. How do we effect change in the things that have lead to this accepted way of life you’re seeing being a part of all of us.

                  Yes things are out of control, but when have we ever had control?

                  All this has been an agenda that was insidiously inserted into our lives since we were young children.

                  Refreshing some people’s memory and perhaps offering to others something they are not aware of, below is the link to the Communist Manifesto that was read into the Congressional record on January 10, 1963. Most of the 45 goals have been successfully and completely inserted into American society.

                  THE 45 COMMUNIST GOALS AS READ INTO THE CONGRESSIONAL RECORD, 1963 Congressional Record–Appendix, pp. A34-A35

                  #40 & 41 speak to some moral issues you mention along with the destruction of families, and #42 to the Antifa, etc social upheavals that are now ongoing.

                  40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.
                  41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.
                  42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use [“]united force[“] to solve economic, political or social problems.

                  First of all, I did not and do not, except in self defense when responding expressly to a specific poster who has mistakenly or intentionally misinterpreted something I posted.

                  With that said, I was speaking in general and even including myself as this problem is one we all are affected by. If J have communicated otherwise I apologize.

                  I have been trying to say (apparently not as clearly as I had hoped) that we all share in the responsibility for where we have sunk as a society.

                  As for what we should do to reverse course, I did not specify steps as I thought , wrongly it seems, that they would be self-evident to anyone honestly evaluating their own role in our downward slide. It is hard to give specifics since I do not know of course what each citizen has thought, said or done that needs “correcting” (that is, more closely conforming all we think, say or do more closely to our traditional Judeo-Christian values.)

                  I think just surveying our current culture and sincerely reflecting on how far away it is in its many aspects from what our Founders considered virtuous is the best place to start. Once you start to see it from that perspective, many aspects of our daily lives, our style and content of communications, what we occupy our minds with in terms of “entertainment,” what we have taken on from our “culture” and progressivists in terms of morality (acceptance of homosexuality, trans whatever, “choice” as a euphemism for abortion are perhaps some good places to start.

            • IMO, until members of the FBI come forward with what THEY know about the corruption and politicization in their upper ranks, they are ALL responsible. This didn’t happen in a vacuum. Agents SAW things. Agents HEARD things. Agents KNOW things.

              But, are ANY of them DOING anything about it?

              WHY is it that, EVERY time there is a new question that needs to be answered, the info has to be PRIED out of the FBI, and NONE of their agents condemns the bureau for it?

              Those guys are SUPPOSED TO BE the world’s BEST INVESTIGATORS, but they come across like they can’t find their own a$$es with a map and a flashlight. That, or just unwilling to clean their own house.

                My dear fellow/madame, I of course agree that anyone, agent or not, that has knowledge of unethical or illegal activity in the FBI, and for that matter ANY federal employee of ANY agency or office of that government, is complicit in such actions and should be rooted out and punished in accordance with all applicable law.

                This, however, begs the question and, again in case I haven’t yet made my point clear, that there may be (I will even concede the slim possibility that ALL in the FBI. are “guilty,” as some Treepers in their frustration seem to irrationally be alleging (sadly adopting the same tactic of our enemies—to use false hyperbole and broad brush assertions as “fact”) those in the FBI who are honorable patriots trying their best to do their duty in accordance with their oaths.

                I reiterate that I do not condone the many wrongs that were done that are now coming to light and believe that ALL involved (actively or passively as you suggest) should be punished.

                I also think these excesses are endemic and that a drastic reset is required of the FBI (and I believe ALL other federal law enforcement agencies like the BATFE, DEA, Secret Service etc. that have had their own shameful scandals, especially in the years since Ruby Ridge). They all need to be dragged back to the basics of the Constitution and the literal meaning of the sacred oaths they take to abide by it.

                I also re-state my further, and even more important point since apparently so few conservatives, and many Treepers it seems, are willing to honestly look in the mirror as it were.

                ALL these scandals and outrages that we are rightly so incensed and incredulous about, spring from exactly the same root that has infected ALL of our lives. We recoil are the prospect that we may also share (somewhat like the passive approval of those in the FBI that you say are as guilty as the agents who acted so badly) in the “guilt” for the sad state that our current “culture” is in.

                We are hypocrites like our enemies if we do not use these grotesque scandals to prompt self-reflection (and more importantly change for the better) as to what we have individually and corporately become in our current depraved “culture.”

                It does not take long if we are honest to see the stark truth that as a people we are very very far from the “virtuous” citizenry our Founders warned us is an absolute REQUIREMENT for the continued functioning, much less flourishing, of the nation they gave us.

                  Thank you, although it seems today for some reason I have incurred the apparent wrath of some merely for expressing an honest lack of understanding as to several what appeared to me as cryptic posts.

                  I frankly do not know enough about maintaining a blog to do it but again appreciate your kind observations.

                  I do try to have “integrity” in all I think, say or do. This is standard is grounded in the dual meaning of that term. Integrity of course comes from the Latin root that means “together” or “unified” while it also has a more modern meaning of adhering to a strict moral code.

                  As such, I try to be “together” and “unified” in my beliefs, actions and lifestyle as contrasted to many I know who try (unsuccessfully in my view) to compartmentalize their beliefs, actions and lifestyles so that they can “enjoy” some aspects of our current rotten culture while at the same time trying to maintain “higher” values in other areas. I believe to try to segregate different aspects of one’s life inevitably creates a destructive dissonance that, if it doesn’t “destroy” or debilitate such a person, it nevertheless deprives him or her of true happiness and fulfillment.

                  In satisfying the second definitional prong if “integrity” I also try to live out the values embraced in our Judeo-Christian heritage that are rooted in the Bible.

                  It will stop where it stops if we could actually start holding them all accountable. There are a very large number of agents working across America who likely have no direct evidentiary knowledge of the illegal acts or complicity of these other agents. As such, until proven otherwise, I think the agents not involved in these nefarious activities be given the benefit of the doubt rather than being lumped into the corrupt category without any evidence. To do that smacks of the tactics of our enemies when they make their disgusting and pejorative broadsides against all conservatives, Trump supporters etc.

                  As I have said (repeatedly), the FBI and all other federal agencies with any law enforcement capability (and that includes just about all executive branch agencies) have been effectively corrupted from the top down due to their politicization (or more accurately their partisanship in favor of the dimocrats and progressivists) that took root especially with Slick Willy Clinton’s administration (Ruby Ridge and Waco for example) and was taken to the extreme we now see by the thoroughly corrupt Obama and His minions who repeatedly have voiced their disdain for the Constitution as a roadblock to their utopian totalitarian dream.

                  These weaponized agencies and individuals starting at the very top with the politically appointed heads and then filtering down throughout their management and supervisory structures have by no means been purged of this cancer merely by the election of POTUS.

                  Indeed, they have even doubled down on their perverse and criminal influence that constantly undermines those who POTUS has placed in charge. For example, this was painfully evident with the National Security Council’s deep statists who came out during the impeachment farce and with the continued stonewalling by FBI management to prevent release of the revelations now seeing the light of day and the persistence of DOJ deep statists in persecuting Manafort, Stone, Flynn, Papadopoulos et al. that even continues to this day in spite of the 2016 election.

                  All this successful tearing down down of our Country is aimed at the removal of Christ from our lives, a wedge here, a compromise there, etc, and we are no longer terribly useful. For, the Forefathers understood this (as do you, and many), this: “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious People. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”

              JumpinJarhead –

              Sure, us, and our culture, have been lazy.

              But, a major effort, a major campaign, has been underway against us, surruptitiously, for 100 years. Enemy Number One for Communists is Our Prevailing Culture, Our Society.

              Up until after Obama’s first election, it was not OK to say you were Socialist, Socialist Democrat, or Communist. Now, it is OK. But the Communists have been working along other lines than frank recruitment.

              A major one is that they have been working on the institution of Higher Education.

              In the 1990s, the FBI started requiring or really pressuring agents to “have a masters degree.” By that time, a Progressive viewpoint, with America, Our Prevailing Society, as the excuse for all of the misery and oppression in the world, was well ensconsed in Higher Ed. Even if Professors did not know that they were teaching Communist ideas,most advanced these views.

              Consider an FBI agent in 1995, having been in for a few years. He or she sees a good path to retirement by doing what they love: being a law enforcement person at this big level. The Boss says go get a masters degree; we will pay for it.

              What is a likely masters degree? Things like International Relations and Criminal Justice. All areas where Progs had taken over. And, the schools within the shadow of Quantico.

              Law School: pretty much the same thing. When I was an undergrad, doing “campus democrats,” all of the pre-law students in my group were wanting to go to law school to study and go practice the “social justice.” And Law School had what they wanted.

              William and Mary. Georgetown. UVA. Terps. –Any of these likely degrees in those institutions of higher learning are generally Prog.

              So, this seemingly innocuous, beneficial edict helps work to shift all of the younger career agents at least to be aware of all of this “social justice” stuff.

              From that point, if that is what is desired to get hired, either a masters or interest in getting a masters, then practically ALL of the FBI can get philosophically shifted with that one policy.

              How to solve all of this? No more undergrad student loans just for anyone.

                I agree with your excellent post but I return to what I consider first principles—how did our “culture,” including the institutions of higher “education” to which you refer, get to the point you reference? What role have we conservatives played in this progression and what are we doing about it today?

                I understand what you are saying about the FBI, but I think we are wearing blinders when we focus on the FBI in a vacuum. It, as are all the other “institutions” like schools, colleges and universities, government agencies, churches, etc. is a reflection,albeit a dangerous one given its law enforcement power, of the sick society of which it and we are a part.

                I do not believe we will do much substantively to right the ship of our sinking society until we confront our own roles in its decline. We must retake the true moral high ground if we are to save America and from where I stand, too few are willing to even accept the proposition, much less do anything to truly clean up our own lives and lifestyles as the beginning of the reversing course of our society.

            Georgia, do you see the pattern?

            Same pattern, different script for all of these events.

            I believe 9/11 was an inside job. Do the math. How could the top of each buliding fall and completely collapse and crush the rest of the building underneath it. It just doesn’t add up.

            It’s equivalent to a small car driving head on into an big 18 wheeler truck and crushing the 18 wheeler like it was an aluminum can. That’s essentially what we saw when the two World Trade Towers collapsed. The math and physics just don’t support it. It can’t happen without the building being setup in advance to implode. Also, how did nearby Building 7 collapse later that evening and collapse like it was being razed/imploded. Look up Scientists for 9/11 Truth or Pilots for 9/11 Truth for more details. I started looking into it when all this Russia hoax lying and corruption were taking place. I thought, “What else are they lying about”.

            When General Hayden, CIA Director at the time, was asked about all the things surrounding 9/11 not adding up, his dismissive comment was something like, “Do you realize how many people would have to be involved in that scenario for that to take place?”

            Well, now that we see how many were involved in the Russia hoax, the Impeachment sham and now the Plan-demic, we can see how it is indeed plausible that an inside job the size of 9/11 could take place. It’s not just a “Conspiracy Theory” if it turns out that it was in fact a conspiracy.

              My response to General Hayden would be to set aside some time and watch the documentary “Man on Wire”

              It’s about Philippe Petit, a French aerialist who dressed up as a maintenance man along with a very few buddies; snuck in at night, and set up over a ton of heavy equipment including cables in both of the Twin Towers, so he could tightrope walk between the two WTC buildings, back in the 1970s while they were still up.

              Excelent points MM. You only omitted one thing about WTC 7, that collapsed just like the towers: It was not even hit by a plane. The jet fuel that melted steel columns was entirely missing from WTC7. After 9/11, there were a number of high-rise fires, including one in London that was utterly destructive. In all of them, the skeletal steel frames remained standing. So the WTC7 was the victim of a magic fire, apparently. Or it felt survivor’s guilt seeing its big siblings go down, and in remorse, it committed hair kari. /s

            Also you appear not to have seen my contention that all of the federal law enforcement agencies in varying degrees suffer from the same systemic illness of partisanship introduced into the top levels of management of these agencies during dimocrat administrations that should be firmly rooted out and used as a “teaching moment” for the entire agencies to return all personnel to the proper standard reflected in their oaths—to support and defend the Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic.

Tell the truth as to OKC or 911? “Career Ender”.

              The FBI is rotten from top to bottom and the only real solution is to close it and possibly give the non-political actual law enforcement cases to the Federal Marshal’s office, the FBI is NOT the friend of free citizens in the USA, deal with them and find out….– Local Law Enforcement that is ethically run generally hates when they show up and detests working with them — that’s been true for decades though even when I was a Prosecutor in the 80s, worse now but there are far less “ethical” local law enforcement entities now because they have been hijacked at the top also– check out the Fort Lauderdale Sheriff Scott Israel in that school shooting down there and those associated with him in “law enforcement” — that’s the new “Model”, it does not work like it did even 15 years ago in most places post-Obama it is all NWO/Leftist Politicos/hacks all well funded to win elections and bring about “change”…

                  My dear fellow/madame, that is effectively what I have said. Without actual evidence, or at least as a minimum a valid statistical sample of the whole that allows us to fairly extrapolate tl the entire FBI, I am simply saying we have no evidentiary basis, but rather mere opinions, to say ALL employees are unworthy of their positions and should be fired or have actually committed or been criminally complicit such that they should be charged and prosecuted.

                  With that said, and as I thought I made clear several times, I am perfectly amenable to going as far as the evidence leads to clean out the enemies of the Constitution in that agency, or any other for that matter. It the evidence shows the entire agency to be beyond hope, then it certainly should be disbanded and its duties assigned elsewhere, whether a new agency or other existing ones.

                  I also repeat my caveat, that all such “reformer” efforts are very problematic as they are inherently affected by the considerable negatives in our “culture” and thus will subconsciously incorporate those same corrupt values that will very likely cause future lapses of judgment, loyalty, patriotism and legality.

Is it possible the grunt attorneys were being directed by Holder who was being directed by Obama who was being directed by “whoever”? These career grunts working 9 to 5 are not the source of evil we seek, whether they be lawyers or federal employees. We need the ones who “move” frequently from pinnacle to pinnacle or simply “give orders”!

          Smith made the interesting point that the DoJ used Covington’s (supposed) errors in Flynn’s FARA filing as a lever to coerce Covington into pushing Flynn into a plea deal. So Covington’s incompetence opened the door to Covington’s misconduct, all at Flynn’s expense — literally and figuratively, since Covington billed Flynn vast sums for its own failures.

      The Obama govt spied on us citizens illegally, ( most recently using FBI / FISA court counter intelligence powers )
      General Flyn before Trump won . was intending to AUDIT ALL intelligence operations.
      Obama Govt and FBI DOJ CIA would have been exposed
      Obama Govt and FBI DOJ CIA put plan in place to remove / destroy Gen Flynn.

      but there are documents all over the place that expose parts of the corrupt plan. (destruction of documents risks serious criminal charges, so just dont find them instead )
      For example
      FBI agent in charge decides to end Gen Flyn investigation, because there is nothing there.
      FBI agent in charge told not to end Gen Flyn investigation
      next day FBI director Comey has meeting in Obama White house with other “conspirators”
      becasue they are “very concerned” about Gen Flynn

      They spied on US citizens, US politicians, Trumps campaign, Trump before and after Trump was President.

    Top FBI cybersecurity officials to retire as U.S. faces threat of cyberattacks
    Published: July 19, 2018 at 7:29 p.m. ET

    Additionally, Carl Ghattas, executive assistant director of the FBI’s national security branch, has decided to leave for the private sector. And Jeffrey Tricoli, a senior FBI cyber agent who oversaw a Bureau task force addressing Russian attempts to meddle in U.S. elections, left last month for a senior vice president position at Charles Schwab Corp., the Journal reported last week.

      I beleve we are going to find out Carter Page was a willing participant and was working with DOJ/FBI on this op. I think he was planted there in order to spread the virus/justify the spying within the campaign.

      The FISA two hop rule essentially allowed them to spy on the entire campaign. The FISA was also retroactive allowing them to reach back and review all prior communications on the entire campaign. The FISA on Carter Page was, therefore, used as a blanket to justify (launder) all past spying that took place on the campaign.

      I could be wrong but I believe Carter Page was on a mission and is not the deer in the headlights nerd he comes off as in his interviews. Those interviews, also part of the mission. Just my speciulation here.

        Has any interviewer ever flat out asked Carter Page “Were you ever in contact with the FBI/CIA or any U.S. or foreign government entity or any persons whatsoever to coordinate or make plans to get close to the Trump campaign? Were you aware of any intent or attempt to surveil any of the Trump campaign via you as a conduit?”. Ask PapaD too, ask everyone just to be sure. Under oath. Early assumptions of Page similar to Adm Rogers…white hat, or now seems like maybe a bit of CYA? He investigated the NSA database search abuse of spying on republican candidates several months earlier, but didn’t tell Trump or until AFTER the election? No whistleblowers? So if Hillary won, would he ever have said anything? In any case, time is running out; everything needs to be exposed very soon with many indictments, way before the election, or else a “surprise” election result may bury all the evidence. If the swamp wins, it’ll flood back bigger and stronger than ever before; but more hidden, so you won’t hear much about it ever again.

So, the goal was not to get Flynn, as much as McCabe hated Flynn and wanted revenge, but to force Trump to resign or get impeached. In doing that, the success of that would yield unimaginable corrupt fruit. All the tools of corrupt law tricks and law enforcement tricks, and surveillance tricks developed during Obama’s administration would be put to the ultimate test.

Their efforts were often cursory and symbolic: they arranged for Alexander Downer to finger PapaD in the summer of 2016, but neglected to interview George until January of 2017.

    Imagine their chagrin and fury at their failure when Hillary lost. They went looking for scapegoats: PapaD and Manafort and Trump himself (a long list) but most of all Flynn. Why?

    Flynn was one of their team: an intelligence professional. But even more, Flynn was an apostate, a turncoat. Flynn was a high-ranking Democrat who joined the Republican Trump. Apostates are despised the world over.

      It is a mistake to imagine that the surveillance tools were just deployed on Trump, that using law enforcement traps were just used on Flynn. There is evidence that the Romney campaign was surveilled. It is also sketchy that suddenly Romney stopped campaigning at the end at a critical time, that suddenly he did poorly at the debates, that Romney votes with the Dems on impeachment. No, Romney is compromised, bent.

      But the point is that these tools were under development before Obama, likely Clinton brought them with her, and these tools were used for the 2012 election as well as 2016 election. Trump must be cleaner than Mr. Clean… but with hair.

    Durham Team Is Focused on Flynn Case; Disturbed No FBI/DOJ Whistleblowers Came Forward

    https://www.redstate.com/elizabeth-vaughn/2020/05/01/report-durham-disturbed-that-no-fbidoj-whistleblowers-came-forward-early-on-speaks-to-ag-barr-daily/

    Excerpt:

    Sources familiar with the Durham investigation spoke to Fox News as the focus returns to the nearly forgotten coup against the President and Gen. Michael Flynn. One source told Fox that Durham has reviewed the unsealed Flynn documents and he’s disturbed that no whistleblowers came forward early on. Considering that there were more than a few officials who had to be aware of what was going on, including support staff, Mr. Durham finds it remarkable that no one spoke up “at the onset.” One would think he might have learned by now that the only use members of the deep state have for whistleblowing is when it can be used as a weapon against the right.

    Speaking as a former Federal whistleblower myself, it seems a little difficult to believe Mr. Durham has to ask the question about where were the FBI whistleblowers at the beginning of this incident. I thought he had some experience in digging into Federal wrongdoing.

    Somewhere in the past – quite possibly on this site – I read that one of the original coup d’etat conspirators, working closely with Comey, McCabe, et al, was the then-current FBI IG, or possibly acting IG. In the FBI, as was certainly the case in my former agency, and is still likely in all Federal criminal investigative organizations, the IG is the first person to whom a whistleblower must report wrongdoing. This is made abundantly clear when one becomes an agent or administrative employ of any agency. By (according to the info I’ve seen) making the then-IG party to this coup attempt, the FBI top management was able to achieve two ends at once – one, to ensure the individual responsible for enforcing internal discipline within the FBI was a part of the coup attempt from the beginning; two, to ensure any employee of the Bureau who became suspicious of the activities of the coup plotters, or who had any suspicion whatsoever something very much out of the ordinary was occurring in the upper reaches of the Bureau, would be reporting their suspicions directly to the very nerve center of the coup itself. This would ensure the initial report of suspicious activity would be quashed at the outset, and “disciplinary action” against the Bureau employee involved could be set in motion very early on in the process. I’m sure it was in the Bureau then as it was in my agency – any employee, in particular a badge-carrying agent, who aired the agency’s “dirty laundry” to an outside agency, such as Congress, without going to an internal watchdog first, had essentially signed a death warrant for their career, so naturally the inclination would be not to run to another agency once the whistleblower had either heard nothing about their complaint – or had been very severely counseled about it by someone who was actually a co-conspirator in the very activity they were potentially reporting about.

    It might make the Bureau look a little less monolithic in its support of and participation in this terrible crime if you could see how there were no whistleblowers in the early stages because they were headed off so quickly, and so adroitly, through careful planning and administrative sleight-of-hand.

    My suggestion for both AG Barr and AUSA Durham would be to detail one or two investigators (hopefully NOT former FBI personnel) to report to FBIHQ where they should demand – not ask for – the list of agent personnel, Bureau-wide, who were demoted, dismissed, or dead-ended in their careers during the period from the inception of the coup d’etat to its unmasking. If you gentlemen look those folks up and meet them appropriately – after hours or away from office or home – they may be able to tell you things you haven’t dreamed of yet.

    A few points.

    The timing of these Flynn revelations isn’t coincidental. It’s a return salvo to the SSCI report, which was heavily redacted so we can’t know the specifics of it being neutralized. Suffice it to say, it sure looks like the Black Hats put something (redacted) into the bloodstream and DOJ/FBI immediately fired back publicly.

    As I’ve noted previously, it’s important not to lose sight of the increasingly defined contours. Most especially for our purposes the following: Before and after Trump took the oath; and Counter Intelligence versus Law Enforcement (Criminal Investigation/Prosecution).

    See the Rice email to file (15 minutes AFTER Trump took the oath) for both of these.

    To remind, when it comes to Counter-Intelligence, Better Safe Than Sorry reigns supreme. Don’t fall into the trap of getting outraged that Flynn was so investigated, as opposed to being subject to ops to dirty him up.

    While I don’t really feel like wasting the time trying to figure out whether it’s witting or not, be wary of Lee Smith’s assertion that it was “preposterous” that someone of Flynn’s background might be an agent of or compromised by, a foreign power. That’s a failure of imagination and historical ignorance.

    We learned that there was a counter-intelligence investigation of Flynn, CROSSFIRE RAZOR, and that those in charge of it intended to close it on January 4, 2017, having found no derogatory information. Don’t take the bait of being outraged that Gen. Flynn was subjected to this investigation.

    MOST IMPORTANTLY, don’t get yourself up a tree — locked in, on the question of “Russian Disinformation.” Russia wasn’t a potted plant! At a minimum, it was aware of the conspiracy against Trump, and its narrative centrality to it, and acted self-protectively.

    Trump:” I don’t blame China, I blame past leadership.” Consider this theme from the POTUS in the instant context. Just ask yourself, what would you do if you were Putin/Russia as, in real time, you knew that at the highest levels the factions in power in the US were framing the opposition candidate as a Russian agent/asset? I said, at a minimum in an abundance of caution. That this has remained still raging, to say nothing of unresolved, suggests the rot goes much deeper:

    CIA boss Brennan visited Moscow in early March: Interfax
    MARCH 28, 2016
    https://www.reuters.com/article/us-russia-usa-cia/cia-boss-brennan-visited-moscow-in-early-march-interfax-idUSKCN0WU0S5

    The almost entirely redacted SSCI report strikes me as desperate CYA by this bipartisan group of Senators. Basically, “this is what we were told” — with the “this” redacted because it’s “disinformation” courtesy of Brennan and his “handpicked” operatives. If we keep moving in the right direction, get ready for the reappearance of the “Witting/Unwitting” agent of/compromised by a foreign power. This time applied to Brennan and his merry band, not Trump and his campaign.

      Returning to Flynn for a moment to be clear . . . .

      The EC closing CROSSFIRE RAZOR — “no derogatory information” — puts to bed Flynn from a counter-intelligence perspective through January 4, 2017, in a manner most favorable to Gen. Flynn.

      Priestap’s notes make it crystal clear that this precipitated a shift to a LAW ENFORCEMENT action with the objective of getting Flynn fired and prosecuted.

      Keep reminding yourself of that dichotomy, Counter-Intelligence vs. Law Enforcement.

      Rice’s email to file is structured around it:

      “President Obama began the conversation by stressing his continued commitment to ensuring that every aspect of this issue is handled by the Intelligence and law enforcement communities “by the book”. The President stressed that he is not asking about, initiating or instructing anything from a law enforcement perspective. He reiterated that our law enforcement team needs to proceed as it normally would by the book.

      From a national security perspective, however, President Obama said he wants to be sure that, as we engage with the incoming team, we are mindful to ascertain if there is any reason that we cannot share information fully as it relates to Russia.”

      We now have the answer to the mystery as to why Rice waited from January 5 to January 20, fifteen minutes after Trump took the oath, to write this. She (and Obama) did not want a record of their foreknowledge in the event that they made progress on their plot or otherwise succeeded in getting Trump to drop Flynn.

      The bombshell that hasn’t dropped yet is what is still redacted and classified in Rice’s email to file. Rather obviously at this point, it is what Comey and Yates told Obama/Rice about these four counter-intelligence investigations. You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to figure out that it was in all likelihood the equivalent of how forthcoming Obama’s FBI/DOJ was with the FISA Court. Or at least that is likely the way Rice told it.

      Dollars to donuts, Rice’s email makes no mention of the White House being told of the EC clearing Flynn the day before.

      And, I doubt it’s coincidental that Sally Yates ran for the exit six days after they executed the Flynn Ambush interview:

        We now have the answer to the mystery as to why Rice waited from January 5 to January 20, fifteen minutes after Trump took the oath, to write this.

        I don’t find this entirely convincing. If mere delay was the point, she could just as well have written her memo fifteen minutes before Trump took the oath.

        What are the rules on Executive privilege ? Can Trump waive Executive privilege in respect of Obama Presidency documents ? Or is that up to Obama ? Or even if it’s legally up to the current President, is there a convention to defer to the President at the time the document was created ? I’m guessing that waiting until the Trump Presidency has begun may have more to do with this kind of thing.

        “First principles, Clarice. Read Marcus Aurelius. Of each particular thing ask: what is it in itself? What is its nature? ”

        The document is created to be exculpatory from Obama’s point of view. So he would have no objection to it being released. indeed it is created to be released.That is its nature.

        But there are tons of documents he wouldn’t want released. So dump the Rice document on Trump’s watch, then there’s no question of having to seek Obama’s consent. And so no question that Obama might be charged with inconsistency if he said “yea” to Obama-exculpatory documents, and “nay” to Obama-embarrassing documents.

        But what if the Trump administration declined to release it ? Well Rice and the gang would know it existed. A great media fuss would be kicked up if Trump tried to suppress a document proving that Obama wanted everything done by the book. Trump would have no choice. And even if he thought he did have a choice, it’d be leaked.

        My guess is that the timing has to do with drawing a line between what becomes public – Obama doesn’t want to consent to Obama administration manure being made public. But Obama administration roses – even paper roses lovingly cut and folded by Susan Rice – yeah, the public needs them. Making the Rice memo a Trump Presidency document probably helps draw that line conveniently.

          Is it likely that Comey first had the idea that the first couple of days of the Trump admin were a good time to slip in an ambush of Flynn, only after Trump got inaugurated ? Maybe it had occured to him before then, and he had discussed his idea with Aunt Sally and the gals, inc Susan Rice.

          So while agreeing to his idea for a very off the books ambush, why wouldn’t Rice say “Thank you, Jim” and then go and make sure Jim is left holding the baby, by rattling off a quick CYA memo for the Big O ?

            All the now known criminal conspiracies aside, all of these characters, collectively, institutionally and individually, were pissing their pants at the prospect of a POTUS Trump. In the instant case, especially a POTUS Trump with Flynn as head of NSC.

            Remember, unlike previous transitions, even ones switching between the D and R parties, there were literal, or at least effective, bargains between incoming and outgoing to not go after each other. The outgoing Bush and incoming Obama administrations were thick as thieves.

            To say this wasn’t the case with Trump is a vast understatement. Not only with regard to the Obama people, but the Bush and Clinton factions too. For them, Drain The Swamp was frightening in its possibilities.

            I’ll add as concisely as I can something I’ve mentioned previously. On the spectrum from Figurehead to Real POTUS, Real POTUS Trump was replacing the POTUS who had broke new ground as a Figurehead.

            Even though Obama came into office with the wind at his back, he was broken in early. Retreating into the Presidential Bubble and Safe Space after they put the wood to him for defending his Harvard professor friend.

All of this is failure of humans to acknowledge YHWH and His perfect ways even after his presence walked the earth with mankind some 2000 years ago and continues with His people through the presence of the Holy Spirit today.

    Ask yourselves, who in this group of bad actors who would destroy a nation, which includes you and your loved ones, holds the Lord as his/her sole source of authority for right and wrong – for living as a redeemed person? Any of them? Name them if you do. Their actions and words reveal the condition of their souls.

Who has come forward to state they were active participants and observers/bit players (rank and file) to cleanse their consciences and to receive their penalty for their actions as atonement?

    So either America is a YHWH redeemed nation or it is not. Either it has been grafted onto the branch of the redeemed’s tree, or it has been cut off and thrown into the fire.

        Immediately followed by an “unnamed former FBI source” slapping the Priestap’s-a-crook card on top of it.

        Let us hope this is a case of the Rats on a sinking ship starting to turn on each other in their efforts to escape.

      I was wondering too but I dont know why. I assume he may not have been fully aware of just how evil the Obama administration really was.

      1). He may have been a worm on the hook.
      2). He may have figured bribery is the only way to play; i.e., paying a State law firm lots of money to tell their fellow Statesmen to back off.

      #1 makes sense if he’s the aggressor.
      #2 makes sense if he’s the target. After all, when he’s up against an unlawful FBI/DOJ, what choice does he really have other than to throw himself and his $ at their feet in hopes that they will go easier on him? When it became clear that even that would not work, he then turns to real defense counsel who goes for the whole enchilada.

      “Covington and Burling, LLP, a prominent law firm, represented Flynn in the investigation and in plea negotiations. The firm also assisted him in preparing the allegedly false FARA filings.”

      Lee explains this point in the interview- the federalist article cited above gives a thorough explanation of not only WHY he hired Covington but the existing relationship between them and the clear conflict created by attorney negligence. Convington has a PARTNER a person named Eric Holder. Holder probably exerted pressure on Covington to cooperate with the FBI. Everyone knows elections bring consequences and if the RATS take the WH all this will go away. So Covington hedged their bets and hopes Biden or whoever RAT wins 2020

      Flynn has multiple malpractice claims against them. If Trump wins 2020, he will be a wealthy man with an important position in the Trump administration. If Joe takes WH, we all f***. But you’ll find me in the same cave as the Good General as we fight to the death for freedom.

      Flynn knows who was the big players in DC swamp but unbeknown to him there was a conspiracy going on against him.

    The Obama Administration was brutal against whistleblowers. Remember?

    Obama’s war on whistleblowers leaves administration insiders unscathed

    Five key political players enjoy ‘virtual impunity’ – while four lower-level figures are in prison or facing time

    “[I] made tremendous efforts to report these programs to co-workers, supervisors, and anyone with the proper clearance who would listen. The reactions of those I told about the scale of the constitutional violations ranged from deeply concerned to appalled, but no one was willing to risk their jobs, families, and possibly even freedom to go through what [Thomas Andrews] Drake did.”

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_A._Drake
    In 2010, the government alleged that Drake mishandled documents, one of the few such Espionage Act cases in U.S. history. Drake’s defenders claim that he was instead being persecuted for challenging the Trailblazer Project

    (1) “He discloses that the NSA increasingly used contractors – he was one for much of the time – rather than employ permanent staff.”

    (2) “There was no pivotal moment when he decided to turn whistleblower. He attended, by chance, a conference on the scale of Chinese surveillance of its own citizens. That created a nagging thought that if China was doing it then so too might the US. He searched and found confirmation.”

    (3) “5 June 2013 The Guardian begins reporting the Snowden leaks, with revelations about the NSA storing the phone records of millions of Americans, and the agency’s claim its Prism programme had “direct access” to data held by Google, Facebook, Apple and other US internet giants.
    7 June 2013 The US president, Barack Obama, is forced to defend the programmes, insisting that they are adequately overseen by the courts and Congress.”

    They’ve been doing this since Day 1 of Obama’s administration.

    He knew AND approved.

    It was SUPPOSED TO continue…unabated, under HILLARY. Who was SUPPOSED TO win the election. So no one would ever know.

    That’s why Greenwald keeps his articles posted. So they can’t be disappeared.

    Let all of that sink in real good, marinate around, try to understand the implications on a global scale.

    SPYGATE…was the cover-up.

    Where is Kevin Clinesmith, and with whom has he been speaking about his experience as a former “low level attorney” in the special counsel’s office?

    Which of his Mueller superiors gave him the order to commit a federal felony by totally reversing the CIA’s email regarding Carter Page’s work for CIA?

    Why would a licensed attorney on temporary assignment assume the risks associated with complying with that order? Through how many links upward in the Mueller chain of command does that order extend?

    Was Kevin told by the Mueller crew that they were investigating Carter Page on suspicion of Russian collusion, protecting Page as a source, or none of the above?

    Trisha Anderson from the small group now works at Covington Buerling, Flynn’s lawyers who colluded with the FBI to bury him. This is potentially a lot more relevant than the Eric Holder connection that people were pointing out on Twitter. When did she make the move and when was that job negotiated?

    Wray and anyone else within the FBI, who helped to delay the release of this “Brady material”, should be considered part of the coup and included in the RICO investigation. “Trying to protect the agency” isn’t a good excuse for breaking the law. FBI agents can’t claim that they don’t understand that.
