Why is Obama Panicking Now? – The Importance of Understanding Political Surveillance In The Era of President Obama…

Why is former President Obama calling forth all his defensive resources now?  Why did former national security advisor Susan Rice write her cya letter?  Why have republicans in congress not been willing to investigate the true origins of political surveillance?  What is the reason for so much anger, desperation and opposition from a variety of interests?

With the release of recent transcripts and the declassification of material from within the IG report, the Carter Page FISA and Flynn documents showing FBI activity, there is a common misconception about why the intelligence apparatus began investigating the Trump campaign in the first place.  Why was Donald Trump considered a threat?

In this outline we hope to provide some fully cited deep source material that will explain the origin; and specifically why those inside the Intelligence Community began targeting Trump and using Confidential Human Sources against campaign officials.

During the time-frame of December 2015 through April 2016 the NSA database was being exploited by contractors within the intelligence community doing unauthorized searches.

On March 9, 2016, oversight personnel doing a review of FBI system access were alerted to thousands of unauthorized search queries of specific U.S. persons within the NSA database.

NSA Director Admiral Mike Rogers was made aware.

Subsequently NSA Director Rogers initiated a full compliance review of the system to identify who was doing the searches; & what searches were being conducted.

On April 18, 2016, following the preliminary audit results, Director Rogers shut down all FBI contractor access to the database after he learned FISA-702 “about”(17) and “to/from”(16) search queries were being done without authorization. Thus begins the first discovery of a much bigger background story.

When you compile the timeline with the people involved; and the specific wording of the resulting review, which was then delivered to the FISA court; and overlay the activity that was taking place in the GOP primary; what we discover is a process where the metadata collected by the NSA was being searched for political opposition research and surveillance.

Additionally, tens-of-thousands of searches were identified by the FISA court as likely extending much further than the compliance review period: “while the government reports it is unable to provide a reliable estimate of the non compliant queries since 2012, there is no apparent reason to believe the November 2015 [to] April 2016 period coincided with an unusually high error rate”.

In short, during the Obama administration the NSA database was continually used to conduct surveillance. This is the critical point that leads to understanding the origin of “Spygate”, as it unfolded in the Spring and Summer of 2016.

It was the discovery of the database exploitation and the removal of access as a surveillance tool that created their initial problem. Here’s how we can tell.

Initially in December 2015 there were 17 GOP candidates and all needed to be researched.

However, when Donald Trump won New Hampshire, Nevada and South Carolina the field was significantly whittled. Trump, Cruz, Rubio, Kasich and Carson remained.

On Super Tuesday, March 2, 2016, Donald Trump won seven states (VT, AR, VA, GA, AL, TN, MA) it was then clear that Trump was the GOP frontrunner with momentum to become the presumptive nominee. On March 5th, Trump won Kentucky and Louisiana; and on March 8th Trump won Michigan, Mississippi and Hawaii.

The next day, March 9th, NSA security alerts warned internal oversight personnel that something sketchy was going on.

This timing is not coincidental. As FISA Judge Rosemary Collyer later wrote in her report, “many of these non-compliant queries involved the use of the same identifiers over different date ranges.” Put another way: attributes belonging to a specific individual(s) were being targeted and queried, unlawfully. Given what was later discovered, it seems obvious the primary search target, over multiple date ranges, was Donald Trump.

There were tens-of-thousands of unauthorized search queries; and as Judge Collyer stated in her report, there is no reason to believe the 85% non compliant rate was any different from the abuse of the NSA database going back to 2012.

As you will see below the NSA database was how political surveillance was being conducted during Obama’s second term in office. However, when the system was flagged, and when NSA Director Mike Rogers shut down “contractor” access to the system, the system users needed to develop another way to get access.

Mike Rogers shuts down access on April 18, 2016. On April 19, 2016, Fusion-GPS founder Glenn Simpson’s wife, Mary Jacoby visits the White House. Immediately thereafter, the DNC and Clinton campaign contract Fusion GPS… who then hire Christopher Steele.

Knowing it was federal “contractors”, outside government with access to the system, doing the unauthorized searches, the question becomes: who were the contractors?

The possibilities are quite vast. Essentially anyone the FBI or intelligence apparatus was using could have participated. Crowdstrike was a known FBI contractor; they were also contracted by the DNC. Shawn Henry was the former head of the FBI office in DC and is now the President of Crowdstrike Services; a rather dubious contractor for the government and a politically connected data security and forensic company. James Comey’s special friend Daniel Richman was an unpaid FBI “special employee” with security access to the database. Nellie Ohr began working for Fusion-GPS on the Trump project in November 2015 and she was a CIA contractor; and it’s entirely likely Glenn Simpson or people within his Fusion-GPS network were also contractors for the intelligence community.

Remember the Sharyl Attkisson computer intrusions? It’s all part of this same network; Attkisson even names Shawn Henry as a defendant in her ongoing lawsuit.

All of the aforementioned names, and so many more, held a political agenda in 2016.

It seems likely if the NSA flags were never triggered then the contracted system users would have continued exploiting the NSA database for political opposition research; which would then be funneled to the Clinton team. However, once the unauthorized flags were triggered, the system users (including those inside the official intelligence apparatus) needed to find another back-door to continue… Again, the timing becomes transparent.

Immediately after NSA flags were raised March 9th; the same intelligence agencies began using confidential human sources (CHS’s) to run into the Trump campaign. By activating intelligence assets like Joseph Mifsud and Stefan Halper the IC (CIA, FBI) and system users had now created an authorized way to continue the same political surveillance operations.

When Donald Trump hired Paul Manafort on March 28, 2016, it was a perfect scenario for those doing the surveillance. Manafort was a known entity to the FBI and was previously under investigation. Paul Manafort’s entry into the Trump orbit was perfect for Glenn Simpson to sell his prior research on Manafort as a Trump-Russia collusion script two weeks later.

The shift from “unauthorized exploitation of the NSA database” to legally authorized exploitation of the NSA database was now in place. This was how they continued the political surveillance. This is the confluence of events that originated “spygate”, or what officially blossomed into the FBI investigation known as “Crossfire Hurricane” on July 31.

If the NSA flags were never raised; and if Director Rogers had never initiated the compliance audit; and if the political contractors were never blocked from access to the database; they would never have needed to create a legal back-door, a justification to retain the surveillance. The political operatives/contractors would have just continued the targeted metadata exploitation.

Once they created the surveillance door, Fusion-GPS was then needed to get the FBI known commodity of Chris Steele activated as a pipeline. Into that pipeline all system users pushed opposition research. However, one mistake from the NSA database extraction during an “about” query shows up as a New Yorker named Michael Cohen in Prague.

That misinterpreted data from a FISA-702 “about query” is then piped to Steele and turns up inside the dossier; it was the wrong Michael Cohen. It wasn’t Trump’s lawyer, it was an art dealer from New York City with the same name; the same “identifier”.

A DEEP DIVE – How Did It Work?

Start by reviewing the established record from the 99-page FISC opinion rendered by Presiding Judge Rosemary Collyer on April 26, 2017. Review the details within the FISC opinion.

I would strongly urge everyone to read the FISC report (full pdf below) because Judge Collyer outlines how the DOJ, which includes the FBI, had an “institutional lack of candor” in responses to the FISA court. In essence, the Obama administration was continually lying to the FISA court about their activity, and the rate of fourth amendment violations for illegal searches and seizures of U.S. persons’ private information for multiple years.

Unfortunately, due to intelligence terminology Judge Collyer’s brief and ruling is not an easy read for anyone unfamiliar with the FISA processes. That complexity also helps the media avoid discussing it; and as a result most Americans have no idea the scale and scope of the Obama-era surveillance issues. So we’ll try to break down the language.

.

For the sake of brevity and common understanding CTH will highlight the most pertinent segments showing just how systemic and troublesome the unlawful electronic surveillance was.

Early in 2016 NSA Director Admiral Mike Rogers was alerted of a significant uptick in FISA-702(17) “About” queries using the FBI/NSA database that holds all metadata records on every form of electronic communication.

The NSA compliance officer alerted Admiral Mike Rogers who then initiated a full compliance audit on/around March 9th, 2016, for the period of November 1st, 2015, through May 1st, 2016.

While the audit was ongoing, due to the severity of the results that were identified, Admiral Mike Rogers stopped anyone from using the 702(17) “about query” option, and went to the extraordinary step of blocking all FBI contractor access to the database on April 18, 2016 (keep these dates in mind).

Here are some significant segments:

The key takeaway from these first paragraphs is how the search query results were exported from the NSA database to users who were not authorized to see the material. The FBI contractors were conducting searches and then removing, or ‘exporting’, the results. Later on, the FBI said all of the exported material was deleted.

Searching the highly classified NSA database is essentially a function of filling out search boxes to identify the user-initiated search parameter and get a return on the search result.

♦ FISA-702(16) is a search of the system returning a U.S. person (“702”); and the “16” is a check box to initiate a search based on “To and From“. Example, if you put in a date and a phone number and check “16” as the search parameter the user will get the returns on everything “To and From” that identified phone number for the specific date. Calls, texts, contacts etc. Including results for the inbound and outbound contacts.

♦ FISA-702(17) is a search of the system returning a U.S. person (702); and the “17” is a check box to initiate a search based on everything “About” the search qualifier. Example, if you put a date and a phone number and check “17” as the search parameter the user will get the returns of everything about that phone. Calls, texts, contacts, geolocation (or gps results), account information, user, service provider etc. As a result, 702(17) can actually be used to locate where the phone (and user) was located on a specific date or sequentially over a specific period of time which is simply a matter of changing the date parameters.

And that’s just from a phone number.

Search an ip address “about” and read all data into that server; put in an email address and gain everything about that account. Or use the electronic address of a GPS enabled vehicle (about) and you can withdraw more electronic data and monitor in real time. Search a credit card number and get everything about the account including what was purchased, where, when, etc. Search a bank account number, get everything about transactions and electronic records etc. Just about anything and everything can be electronically searched; everything has an electronic ‘identifier’.

The search parameter is only limited by the originating field filled out. Names, places, numbers, addresses, etc. By using the “About” parameter there may be thousands or millions of returns. Imagine if you put “@realdonaldtrump” into the search parameter? You could extract all following accounts who interacted on Twitter, or Facebook etc. You are only limited by your imagination and the scale of the electronic connectivity.

As you can see below, on March 9th, 2016, internal auditors noted the FBI was sharing “raw FISA information, including but not limited to Section 702-acquired information”.

In plain English the raw search returns were being shared with unknown entities without any attempt to “minimize” or redact the results. The person(s) attached to the results were named and obvious. There was no effort to hide their identity or protect their 4th amendment rights of privacy; and database access was from the FBI network:

But what’s the scale here? This is where the story really lies.

Read this next excerpt carefully.

The operators were searching “U.S Persons”. The review of November 1, 2015, to May 1, 2016, showed “eighty-five percent of those queries” were unlawful or “non compliant”.

85% !! “representing [redacted number]”.

We can tell from the space of the redaction the number of searches were between 10,000 and 99,999 [six digits]. If we take the middle number of 50,000 – a non compliant rate of 85 percent means 42,500 unlawful searches out of 50,000.

The [six digit] amount (more than 10,000, less than 99,999), and 85% error rate, was captured in a six month period, November 2015 to April 2016.

Also notice this very important quote: “many of these non-compliant queries involved the use of the same identifiers over different date ranges.” This tells us the system users were searching the same phone number, email address, electronic identifier, repeatedly over different dates.

Specific person(s) were being tracked/monitored.

Additionally, notice the last quote: “while the government reports it is unable to provide a reliable estimate of” these non lawful searches “since 2012, there is no apparent reason to believe the November 2015 [to] April 2016 coincided with an unusually high error rate”.

That means the 85% unlawful FISA-702(16)(17) database abuse has likely been happening since 2012.

2012 is an important date in this database abuse because a network of specific interests is assembled that also shows up in 2016/2017:

  • Who was 2012 FBI Director? Robert Mueller, who was selected by the FBI group to become special prosecutor in 2017.
  • Who was Mueller’ chief-of-staff? Aaron Zebley, who became one of the lead lawyers on the Mueller special counsel.
  • Who was 2012 CIA Director? John Brennan (remember the ouster of Gen Petraeus)
  • Who was ODNI? James Clapper.
  • Remember, the NSA is inside the Pentagon (Defense Dept) command structure. Who was Defense Secretary? Ash Carter

Who wanted NSA Director Mike Rogers fired in 2016? Brennan, Clapper and Carter.

And finally, who wrote and signed-off-on the January 2017 Intelligence Community Assessment and then lied about the use of the Steele Dossier? The same John Brennan, and James Clapper along with James Comey.

Tens of thousands of searches over four years (since 2012), and 85% of them are illegal. The results were extracted for?…. (I believe this is all political opposition use; and I’ll explain why momentarily.)

OK, that’s the stunning scale; but who was involved?

Private contractors with access to “raw FISA information that went well beyond what was necessary to respond to FBI’s requests“:

And as noted, the contractor access was finally halted on April 18th, 2016.

[Coincidentally (or likely not), the wife of Fusion-GPS founder Glenn Simpson, Mary Jacoby, goes to the White House the very next day on April 19th, 2016.]

None of this is conspiracy theory.

All of this is laid out inside this 99-page opinion from FISC Presiding Judge Rosemary Collyer who also noted that none of this FISA abuse was accidental in a footnote on page 87: “deliberate decisionmaking“:

This specific footnote, if declassified, could be a key. Note the phrase: “([redacted] access to FBI systems was the subject of an interagency memorandum of understanding entered into [redacted])”, this sentence has the potential to expose an internal decision; withheld from congress and the FISA court by the Obama administration; that outlines a process for access and distribution of surveillance data.

Note: “no notice of this practice was given to the FISC until 2016“, that is important.

Summary: The FISA court identified and quantified tens-of-thousands of search queries of the NSA/FBI database using the FISA-702(16)(17) system. The database was repeatedly used by persons with contractor access who unlawfully searched and extracted the raw results without redacting the information and shared it with an unknown number of entities.

The outlined process certainly points toward a political spying and surveillance operation; and we are not the only one to think that’s what this system is being used for.

Back in 2017 when House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes was working to reauthorize the FISA legislation, Nunes wrote a letter to ODNI Dan Coats about this specific issue:

SIDEBAR: To solve the issue, well, actually attempt to ensure it never happened again, NSA Director Admiral Mike Rogers eventually took away the “About” query option permanently in 2017. NSA Director Rogers said the abuse was so inherent there was no way to stop it except to remove the process completely. [SEE HERE] Additionally, the NSA database operates as a function of the Pentagon, so the Trump administration went one step further. On his last day as NSA Director Admiral Mike Rogers -together with ODNI Dan Coats- put U.S. cyber-command, the database steward, fully into the U.S. military as a full combatant command. [SEE HERE] Unfortunately it didn’t work as shown by the 2018 FISC opinion rendered by FISC Judge James Boasberg [SEE HERE]

There is little doubt the FISA-702(16)(17) database system was used by Obama-era officials, from 2012 through April 2016, as a way to spy on their political opposition.

Quite simply there is no other intellectually honest explanation for the scale and volume of database abuse that was taking place; and keep in mind these searches were all ruled to be unlawful. Searches for repeated persons over a period time that were not authorized.

When we reconcile what was taking place and who was involved, then the actions of the exact same principle participants take on a jaw-dropping amount of clarity.

All of the action taken by CIA Director Brennan, FBI Director Comey, ODNI Clapper and Defense Secretary Ashton Carter make sense. Including their effort to get NSA Director Mike Rogers fired.

Everything after March 9th, 2016, had a dual purpose: (1) done to cover up the weaponization of the FISA database. [Explained Here] Spygate, Russia-Gate, the Steele Dossier, and even the 2017 Intelligence Community Assessment (drawn from the dossier and signed by the above) were needed to create a cover-story and protect themselves from discovery of this four year weaponization, political surveillance and unlawful spying. Even the appointment of Robert Mueller as special counsel makes sense; he was FBI Director when this began. And (2) they needed to keep the surveillance going.

The beginning decision to use FISA(702) as a domestic surveillance and political spy mechanism appears to have started in/around 2012. Perhaps sometime shortly before the 2012 presidential election and before John Brennan left the White House and moved to CIA. However, there was an earlier version of data assembly that preceded this effort.

Political spying 1.0 was actually the weaponization of the IRS. This is where the term “Secret Research Project” originated as a description from the Obama team. It involved the U.S. Department of Justice under Eric Holder and the FBI under Robert Mueller. It never made sense why Eric Holder requested over 1 million tax records via CD ROM, until overlaying the timeline of the FISA abuse:

The IRS sent the FBI “21 disks constituting a 1.1 million page database of information from 501(c)(4) tax exempt organizations, to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.” The transaction occurred in October 2010 (link)

Why disks? Why send a stack of DISKS to the DOJ and FBI when there’s a pre-existing financial crimes unit within the IRS. All of the evidence within this sketchy operation came directly to the surface in early spring 2012.

The IRS scandal was never really about the IRS, it was always about the DOJ asking the IRS for the database of information. That is why it was transparently a conflict when the same DOJ was tasked with investigating the DOJ/IRS scandal. Additionally, Obama sent his chief-of-staff Jack Lew to become Treasury Secretary; effectively placing an ally to oversee/cover-up any issues. As Treasury Secretary Lew did just that.

Lesson Learned – It would appear the Obama administration learned a lesson from attempting to gather a large opposition research database operation inside a functioning organization large enough to have some good people that might blow the whistle.

The timeline reflects a few months after realizing the “Secret Research Project” was now worthless (June 2012), they focused more deliberately on a smaller network within the intelligence apparatus and began weaponizing the FBI/NSA database. If our hunch is correct, that is what will be visible in footnote #69:

How this all comes together in 2019/2020

Fusion GPS was not hired in April 2016 just to research Donald Trump. As shown in the evidence provided by the FISC, the intelligence community was already doing surveillance and spy operations. The Obama administration already knew everything about the Trump campaign, and were monitoring everything by exploiting the FISA database.

However, after the NSA alerts in/around March 9th, 2016, and particularly after the April 18th shutdown of contractor access, the Obama intelligence community needed Fusion GPS to create a legal albeit ex post facto justification for the pre-existing surveillance and spy operations. Fusion GPS gave them that justification in the Steele Dossier.

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, an outcome of the Fusion contract, contains three insurance policy purposes: (1) the cover-story and justification for the pre-existing surveillance operation (protect Obama); and (2) facilitate the FBI counterintelligence operation against the Trump campaign (assist Clinton); and (3) continue the operation with a special counsel (protect both).

An insurance policy would be needed. The Steele Dossier becomes the investigative virus the FBI wanted 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 Dossier in the system {Go Deep}.

The Obama intelligence community needed Fusion GPS to give them a plausible justification for already existing surveillance and spy operations. Fusion-GPS gave them that justification and evidence for a FISA warrant with the Steele Dossier.

Ultimately that’s why the Steele Dossier was so important; without it, the FBI would not have a tool that Mueller needed to continue the investigation of President Trump. In essence by renewing the FISA application, despite them knowing the underlying dossier was junk, the FBI was keeping the surveillance gateway open for Team Mueller to exploit later on.

Additionally, without the Steele Dossier the DOJ and FBI are naked with their FISA-702 abuse as outlined by John Ratcliffe.

      Guys like Obama who run a spy operation like this have one major flaw. Everyone expects him to spy on his political opposition, we know now for a fact that is what he was doing. He knew he was taking a risk in having that come to light. But to me, one thing that would be truly worrisome to him might not be his enemies’ knowledge he spied on them – but rather the revelation that he spied on his FRIENDS. He’s already shown a propensity for doing this – wasn’t it Obama who was caught intercepting and eavesdropping on Angela Merkel’s telephone calls once, a long time back? He had to apologize to the (furious, and rightly so) German govt for that. If that becomes common knowledge he won’t have ANY friends.

      Obama would want to know what his “friends” are thinking and saying; after all, they possess many secrets that, if divulged, could sink him faster than anything Trump could do to him. His continued ability to operate as he does is heavily dependent on his friends’ help and support, and probably any information they can pass on to him while they’re at it. He’d want to know if any of them might have been visited by investigators, or if any of them were getting cold feet, or were maybe thinking of parting with that VERY damaging information they may have on him because someone somehow gave them the impression if they didn’t come forward voluntarily with it they might be looking at the wrong end of a Barr/Durham subpoena.

      How do you think they’d feel if they knew their “buddy” didn’t trust them any farther than he could see them?

      There’s another aspect to this as well. Obama and Hillary are extremely close. You can’t help but wonder if maybe one of those “flagging friends” identified by his surveillance might be Arkancided, since if they sing, they’re guaranteed to burn Barack, and if he’s burned, she’s burned with him.

And my own experience shows if you scratch someone that can’t stand Obama, you’ll find under that scratch someone who despises Hillary with equal ferocity. they know that too. They may intensely dislike each other – but they’ll never rat on each other, because they know each possesses knowledge that could destroy the other. And each will employ the Samson option against the other as well.

    • Lt. General Flynn was and remains dangerous because he has vast knowledge of the Obama Administration malfeasance in constructing the Iran Nuclear Deal. Flynn knows WHO is profiting and where to find the money. It has to be tens of billions of dollars in “commissions” paid to former President Obama, former Secretary of State John Kerry and their cronies.

      This whole thing, “Get Trump / Russiagate/Ukrainegate” is about that piece of excrement Iran Nuclear Deal. The treasonous thieves in the Obama Administration, who endangered the security of the United States, must be sent to federal prison for the rest of their traitorous lives.

      We cannot abide people who betray the trust of the American people and the national security of the country. These despicable federal officials sold out our nation. All of THIS – the still ongoing coup attempt against President Trump – is an affront to the to the Oaths of Office they swore to uphold.

CNN had also reported that the FBI had tried to get a FISA renewal on Manafort in November or December 2015 but was unable to. When it came out that Manafort had shared polling data with that “Russian” that is when it started to make me think he was a plant. He was sharing the campaigns polling data…not the RNC or Clintons or any other polling data…it was the Trump campaigns internal polling data….why would he share that at all?

      Manafort was charged and convicted on the crimes he committed that they previously investigated him for…did he offer to become a CHS? Could he have not provided the information they wanted so they decided to take him out anyway??? Tony Podesta got off over the same contract…and there is no way in hell that guy and his creepy af brother don’t have plenty of skeletons that could land them in fed prison for decades!! Manafort has always been the odd one in all of this..as with Carter page and PapaD. Absolutely no previous affiliation to Trump and those 2 never even spoke to Trump lmfao then they are suddenly central figures in this whole mess.

Don’t remember the guy’s affiliation with the Bob Dole campaign which I helped with. If Manafort was so busy doing business in Ukraine, I don’t see how he would have any time to spend on getting to know the party organizations in the states.

      Also worth noting that operative Alexandra Chalupa (with her invisible hand in the so-called Ukraine Black Ledger) ‘prophesied’ to her Dem buds that ‘if Manafort is hired by the T campaign, it proves it’s Russians All the Way Down!” …and then lo and behold, he was hired.

    I also remember that after (March 8th) Trump had a commanding lead in the delegate count and was almost a statistical lock for the nomination, the media bombarded us with stories of how the delegates were not guaranteed. They kept on with stories of how Cruz could win or Kasich even though they had no conceivable way to get the needed delegates. This lead to Manafort being hired to secure them (as stated above) on March 28th).

    Did the media aid this effort to push him into the Trump campaign? Contrast how they acted with Bernie and the rest, this time around with regards to delegates! If so, they were involved right from the onset of this whole thing.

    Why is Obama panicking? I think he is panicking not only over Flynn, but I believe he has much more detail on exactly how far along Barr and Durham are than even the recently released documents show.

    Why would Obama panic? The left would have his back and full support if it was just losing Flynn to freedom. They would also support him if it were just POTUS he was spying on. Leftists are flat-out blind to anything other than their ideology.

    So why would be panic? I suspect if his spying is completely uncovered, it would show thousands of prominent names on the right and left being spied on, and he would have nowhere to hide.

    The left would not care of it were POTUS, John Roberts or other GOP candidates spied on in 2016.

    They would care if Bernie were one of them. They would care if other Dems in the House or Senate were spied on for leverage to keep them voting for Obamacare. How many other Dems could be named as being spied on with their arms twisted for certain votes?

    This is mind-boggleing! The US government has gone rogue…the Constitution has been riddled and cast upon the ash heap of history.

The formerly admirable Jeff Sessions had to be aware; the esteemed Chief Justice Roberts, as being the top of the FISA pecking order had to be aware. Since January 2017, who has been prosecuted; who has been convicted; who has been imprisoned; and who has been executed!
    I as a sovereign citizen of the United States of America implore President Trump to immediately declare “Martial Law” and suspend the federal courts and the federal legislature. Military Justice must be invoked nationwide with harsh criminal punishment being administered to public officials and employees found guilty of abusing their positions; harsh punishment should be summarily dispensed to outside actors who have used government assets for political or financial gain. Elections under the current state of affairs are meaningless…we have a duly elected president and he should immediately assume his most solemn post as Commander in Chief and stamp out the malignant cancer that has wormed its way into our daily lives. We can never go back…only a complete and cowardly fool would continue to swear allegiance to this broken country…please, please President Trump…rescue my country!

      Agree, the Hammer Program wet the appetite which morphed into the NSA Contractor Program all done for future LEVERAGE.

      Put them together and you have what we have today. So I say…….

      SHOW THE TIMELINE AND THE PATTERN OF SPYING ABUSE!

      1) Feb 2009-2012/13 – Flipped a Foreign Intelligence tool over to a Domestic Intelligence tool called the Hammer Program to spy and gather information on millions of Americans including judges.

      Who signed the documents to flip it?
      Who oversaw the Hammer Program for the administration?
      What did Obama know about the Hammer Program?
      Where is the deposition of WB Dennis Montgomery?
      Where are the 47 Hard Drives with over 600,000 pages of evidence that DM gave FBI in 2015?
      Why has none of the Hammer Project been declassified for Americans to see?

      2) 2012-2016 – NSA Database Contractor Program where the FIB allowed key Contractors unfettered access to query and gather information on millions of Americans.

      Who authorized this program?
      Who within the FIB oversaw the program?
      Who were the contractors?
      Who did they query over and over?
      What information was queried and taken?
      Why is none of this information declassified for Americans to see?

      Remember – Gen. Flynn worked for the prior administration from 2012-2014 – during the alleged prime database building period.

      Now add in the infamous database quote by Maxine Waters from 2013…..

      “The president has put in place an organization that contains the kind of database that no one has ever seen before in life. That’s going to be very, very powerful. That database will have information about everything on every individual in ways that it’s never been done before.”

      So who were the five key power brokers from 2009-2014?

      I think you will find the same 5 names from back then still deeply involved in the orchestrating the PT Russia Collusion fraud and coup.

      Is that just a coincidence? I think not.

      Folks, I’ve said it before most of what we are seeing and have seen for the past 4 years IMO is about protecting the past and not exposing the massive spying done on Americans.

      IMO, this is what even many today are hiding and trying desperately not to expose.

      Mr. Grenell, if you want to blow this wide open go declass the Hammer Program and every document related to NSA contractors from 2012-2016 and I think you will find the real motive to get and stop PT.

        Montgomery designed and built The Hammer as a foreign surveillance tool in 2003
        to keep America safe after 911. And it did. There were multiple echelons of safe guards (17 including the FISA court) and sign offs for up to and including the President in order to access The Hammer.

        Brennan and Clapper commandeered and privatized The Hammer and moved it to Fort Washington. The Hammer was expanded and made more powerful by Montgomery with computers provided by Robert Mueller’s FBI. The Hammer went live at Fort Washington on 2/3/2009 for Brennan and Clapper.

        When Brennan and Clapper turned The Hammer against the American people then Montgomery became a whistleblower.

        Montgomery handed over 47 hard drives of illegally harvested data to FBI General Counsel James Baker and DOJ Deborah Curtis under two immunity agreements stuck by one time head of the FISA court Judge Royce Lamberth.

        Montgomery was debriefed while being videotaped in an FBI SCIF in December of 2015 by Deborah Curtis with FBI Special Agents Barnett and Giardina.

        FBI General Counsel James Baker, while under oath in 2018 told he received the hard drives from Montgomery which exposed that “Government workers had other government workers —and Americans under illegal surveillance.”

        Montgomery told his contract was from the CIA when he worked for Brennan and Clapper.

        Montgomery continues to hold anTS/SCI clearance with access to SAP -case specific.

    The question is why did Obama get involved with spying on an incoming President and his team.
    Watergate was a giant warning sign.
    He seems to have been aware of some of the problems when he said make sure you do it by the book. This in itself shows he knew that he was already on the wrong side of the red line.

    A simple question every interview ,
    Why did you spy on General Flynn,
    Why did you spy on Trump,
    every day, from here to the election.

    Best tactic is always to lay low and say nothing.
    He has broken that rule big time. Every time an ex President makes a comment it becomes news.
    He has had good advice to lay low for 3 years.
    People may be calling in favors and he is caught.
    Should say nothing.
    Hadto say something.
    Hence raises it into the American consciousness and now he is trapped.

    Let’s not forget Hillary’s FLOTUS scandal, Filegate. She weaponized the FBI long before Obama. And maybe that’s where this ultimately goes…that they have been surveilling whoever they want since the Clinton administration.

    DEVELOPING: Investigators are looking into suspicions by Flynn’s legal team that President Obama directed FBI Director James Comey and Acting AG Sally Yates to investigate Flynn, using the Logan Act as predication, the day after the FBI closed a counterintelligence case on him.

    This was a definitive piece by SD. The ONE THING LACKING (and understandably so) is the role FGPS playing in disseminating the Clinton Dossier to the press and the co-opting of the national media.
    Without that work, and the resulting poisoning of millions of US citizens minds, this mess would have resolved long ago.
    Millions and Millions of Americans have been brainwashed into believing the Coup Plotters narrative.

    “Pretty darn invested” (The New Neo), you bet. And “Obama Panicking” (Sundance)…

    Not because Obama thinks he would be hauled in front of the American Justice System to account for his past deeds on RussiaGate. Nothing of the sort will happen like that.

    Not only as Neo stated about “just worrying his legacy, and continuing his high life, prestige, mega money-making ‘engagements’, and being the king maker”.

    Obama is worried about Clapper, Brennen, Comey, et al. will flip, making plead deals to spill all the beans. And then America will find out Obama personally led the effort to spy on Trump campaign was but the smallest potato in all of his twisted nefarious schemes during his 8 years in the office (continuingly counting after he left office).

    I suspect that it was contractors from Brennan’s The Analytics Corporation that were engaged in the illegal ‘About’ 702 inquiries. Brennan may need to escape to Iran to avoid his fate.
    I suspect that Comey’s memos will contribute to the prosecutions of Brenna, Clapper, Yates, Lynch and others. Comey wasn’t part of the coup. This will be revealed much later; meanwhile, he has to seem opposed to PDJT to avoid arkancide. A lot of people have incorrectly assessed Comey, Rosenstein, Sessions and a few others. That was part of the sting.
    As part of the surrender, MacArthur made the Emporer state, in public and on radio, that he was not a god. It is stunning to see so many Japanese cry in disbelief when this happens. I think that PDJT will detail Hussein’s crimes for all to see, and in return for escaping prosecution, make him confess to everything and accept a ban on him and his associates from ever having anything to do with public life. That, or trial and Gitmo.

    They have proof positive Obama orchestrated a hostile transfer of power to Pres Trump. He targeted Trump and everyone in his admin to frame and change an election.

  45. 1) Curious how the FBI confirmed that their contractors deleted all FISA data, AND we know hear that Steele deleted ALL of his research in January 2017.
    2) If the DNC contractors are “exfiltrating data” over many days and weeks, then basically they are amassing spreadsheets of compromising data on their political opponents.

    So, where are the computers where those spreadsheets were stored and updated?

    Here’s a hypothesis to chew on. The surveillance of Carter Page allowed the FBI to monitor the Trump Campaign and Trump Transition Team in near real time, and that knowledge allowed them to set LTG Flynn on the bogus lying charge.

    We already know that a FISA warrant allows surveillance of the target, anyone he talks to, and anyone they talk to. So a warrant on Page likely meant Flynn and Trump were being monitored as well as Page.

    So the FBI heard the Dec 29 call between Flynn and Kislyak, and realized they could create a problem for Flynn by leaking information from the call to WAPO’s David Ignatius. He published that news on January 12.

    Since the FBI was listening in on the Transition Team communications, they heard the back and forth within the team over the Ignatius column, and recognized that Flynn had provided inaccurate information to VP Pence as he prepared for his CBS Face the Nation interview. When Pence categorically denied Flynn having discussed sanctions with Kislyak, the FBI had an issue they could leverage against Flynn. Heck, with their monitoring of the Transition Team, its entirely possible that they planted the questions with CBS in order to create the issue.

    “First we f**k Flynn, then we f**k Trump”.

    This is the most comprehensive, most damning summary of the entire campaign, probably the biggest attack on humanity in history. Certainly the most diabolical attempt, led by a thankfully inept and narcissistic buffoon named Barack Obama. Donald Trump will have proven to be the third most influential president in history, only surpassed by Abraham Lincoln and George Washington. While I didn’t think anyone could possibly surpass Reagan in my lifetime, the Cold War was a relatively simple, mostly binary choice between two largely continental forces. Trump had not only to deal with a continental foe (China), but he had to fight internal foes who are aiming to destroy this country. The Democrat arm of the Deep State is, in fact, the most dangerous and most threatening organization in the history of humanity; if it ultimate succeeds, humanity is doomed. It is THAT SERIOUS.

      They aren’t hiding. They are in full attack mode. Everything being said about them is all political lies by the Putin stooge Trump. Trump has installed his own political stooge Bill Barr to do the dirty work. Flynn is guilty. He admitted it. Obama did nothing wrong. Trump just attacks him because Orange Man bad and racist. The media has been consistently correct, etc.

      They know they only have to keep it going for 6 more months. They are almost home free.

      We must have indictments. And lots of them.

        In reality, Barr should have let Flynn go to trail. But – the FBI/DOJ can’t stand to lose a case. “Or, is he really protecting the Dems & FBI?” …With all the smoke, mirrors and lies, there is no way that they could have gotten a conviction once Flynn’s plea was withdrawn. Hence, the real TRUTH would have been on display in open court. Though the schemers are sweating now they would have been fully exposed and set on fire by the Defense team…
