AG Barr Not So Confident in FBI Director Chris Wray Anymore – Video…

More than a week after CBS first constructed their editorial narrative they finally released the full interview between Catherine Herridge and AG Bill Barr.  Many people read the transcript; however, thankfully Michael Sheridan excerpts a portion of the video that doesn’t come across in the transcript.

When the attorney general is questioned about “still having confidence” in FBI Director Christopher Wray, a newly articulated hesitancy is visible that doesn’t come across in the transcript. WATCH:

.

Since February 2019 Bill Barr has been a staunch and very public defender of Chris Wray. However, with new revelations about recent FBI efforts to block the release of information as it relates to Michael Flynn, it now appears the AG has less confidence.

This shift is important because as the public have a renewed focused on the question of who illegally leaked Flynn’s communication with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak, there has always been a rather curious contrast issue with the known classified intelligence leaking of James Wolfe.  If finding Flynn’s leaker is important then why didn’t the DOJ/FBI take action when they found a classified intelligence leaker in 2018?

The position of Bill Barr today is a direct result of decisions made by the DOJ and FBI in the Fall of 2017 & Summer of 2018. The events surrounding the leaking of the FISA warrant used against U.S. person Carter Page, and the 2018 DOJ decision not to prosecute SSCI Security Director James Wolfe for those leaks.

The Summer of 2018 was the fork in the road for the DOJ and FBI.

Attorney General Jeff Session was recused, Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein was in charge and the Mueller investigation was ongoing. That was when the DOJ made a decision not to prosecute Wolfe for leaking classified information. DC U.S. Attorney Jessie Liu signed-off on a plea deal where Wolfe plead guilty to only a single count of lying to the FBI.

If the DOJ had pursued the case against Wolfe for leaking the FISA application, everything would have been different.  The American electorate would have seen evidence of what was taking place in the background effort to remove President Trump. We would be in an entirely different place today if that prosecution or trial had taken place.

Three 2018 events revealed the Wolfe issue:

EVENT ONE – On February 9th, 2018, the media reported on text messages from 2017 between Senate Intelligence Committee Vice-Chairman Mark Warner and Chris Steele’s lawyer, a lobbyist named Adam Waldman.

EVENT TWO – Four months after the Mark Warner texts were made public, on June 8th, 2018, another headline story surfaced.  An indictment for Senate Select Committee on Intelligence Security Director James Wolfe was unsealed on June 7th, 2018.

EVENT THREE – Slightly less than two months after release of the Wolfe indictment, another headline story.  On July 21st, 2018, the DOJ/FBI declassified and publicly released the FISA application(s) used against former Trump campaign advisor Carter Page.

♦ Later on December 14th 2018 a fourth albeit buried public release confirmed everything.  The FBI filed a sentencing recommendation proving it was the Carter Page FISA that was leaked by Wolfe:

A prosecution of Wolfe would have exposed a complicit conspiracy between corrupt U.S. intelligence actors and the United States senate (SSCI). Two branches of government essentially working on one objective; the removal of a sitting president. The DOJ decision not to prosecute Wolfe for leaking the classified FISA application protected multiple U.S. agencies and congress.

In 2018 DAG Rod Rosenstein could not prosecute James Wolfe without exposing ‘seditious‘ activity within the U.S. government itself.  Not pretend sedition or theoretical sedition, but an actual pre-planned subversive operation with forethought and malice.

The 2018 decision in the Wolfe case is critical. That’s the fork in the road. If the Wolfe prosecution had continued it would have undoubtedly surfaced that key government officials and politicians were working together (executive and legislative).

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Now things get very interesting.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The court was misled; now everyone can see it.

The content of that DOJ-NSD letter, and the subsequent disparity, points to an institutional decision in 2018; and as a consequence the FISC ordered the DOJ to begin an immediate sequestration effort in January 2020 to find all the evidence from the fraudulent FISA application.  The proverbial fruit from the poisonous tree…. And yes, that is ongoing.

Thus ample reason for Attorney General Bill Barr to reevaluate any confidence in FBI Director Christopher Wray.

Two more big misstatements within the July 2018 letter appear on page #9.  The first is the DOJ claiming that only after the application was filed did they become aware of Christopher Steele working for Fusion-GPS and knowing his intent was to create opposition research for the Hillary Clinton campaign.  See the top of the page.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Really?

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

This declassification release raised more questions than any other in recent memory.

As we said at the time of the release, perhaps AG Bill Barr will now start asking some rather hard questions to FBI Director Christopher Wray.

    Hi SD, I just want you to know
    I am so thankful for your great
    articles with so much info you
    have made possible to learn ! There is
    not a day that goes by that I miss
    your articles. So thank you!!

    As far as AG Barr in the video
    tho I didn’t get the feeling of
    His hesitation starting to lean
    against Wray, cause he then
    was saying he doesn’t feel
    like all the info requests should
    be the directors sole responsibility.
    An imo I think having to do with
    the situation of corruption in the
    FBI Wray should be on top of it.
    Makes me think Barr doesn’t
    think he should deal all requests
    for this scandal!!

    The one factor that seemed to
    push things in a more positive
    direction was Ric Grenell !
    On feb 14th 2020 we learned
    that Barr was having AG Jensen
    reviewing Gen Mike Flynn’s case,
    which was great, but then just a
    week later on feb 21st I saw
    PDJT was putting Grenell as
    Acting dir. of ODNI ! Barr knew
    what was coming with Grenell !
    The slow grinding wheels of
    Justice is what the DOJ wants
    us to keep thinking ! Dotting I’s
    an crossing T’s is old now !
    They just have to try with their
    last hope to push this for 6 more
    months an they can cheat to
    to beat PDJT in the election, an
    they will do whatever they have
    to. As you have said SD ” this
    is what they do”

    So maybe Barr got a fire under
    his backside an will serve Justice
    an make these Human Scum
    extensions of the DRat resistance
    Held accountable because just
    trying to save institutions will not
    happen with we the people with-

    I think here, and elsewhere in the media we all do ourselves a disservice by treating Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak as some sort of “Boris Badanoff” stick figure.
    Who apparently in a perfect world nobody’s supposed to talk to?
    We fall into a trap, because that’s the story the Left wants us to believe.
    But Flynn was just starting to do his job when he talked to him.
    Maybe US Intelligence eavedrops on ALL Russian diplomats.

    The fact is, he was there since the end of the Bush administration.
    If he wasn’t doing the job Putin or Mevedev wanted, he would have flown home many years ago.
    He’s a Russian nationalist- that shouldn’t be a surprise- probably all their good diplomats are.

    He’s also a pudgy near-retirement guy who left in 8/2017.
    Probably a bada3s, but he knew most Washington leaders.
    And he threw big parties at his Maryland retreat.
    Before US Ambassador he was Belgian ambassador & knew EU and Nato people pretty well.
    Likely held a Soviet Govt. position back in the day.

    Perhaps he knows all the Russian & Ukrainian oligarchs, including perhaps some in FL.
    Chances are knows the Clintons well, & the Clinton Foundation. Chelsea too?
    And the nuances & shadiness of the Obama administration.
    He probably helped engineer the 2014 Uranium deal, maybe with a quid-pro-quo.
    Maybe knows a lot more about Haitian relief, & the Benghazi crisis, & Obama’s Iranian treaty.
    Let’s not kid ourselves.
    One didn’t have to love him, to work with him. Even against USA interests.

    up? That makes no sense.

    Why would he come out PUBLICALLY more than once to say yes POTUS was
    spied on if he was just then gonna hide it all and cover it up?

    Why would he end Mueller and write his report that set thier hair on fire if he was

    Why would he just bad mouth Wray whom he has to work with without some kind
    of evidence Wray did wrong? Maybe now that info is getting out and he can do so
    but he can;t just bad mouth his employees without proof..especially with the

    we think it is not a quick fix..

    But I do think Barr would rather expose it while doing his best to retain some faith
    in his DOJ how you do both I don;t know , but I find it hard to believe
    Barr would publically declare POTUS was in fact spied on then cover it all
    up AFTER repeatedly saying that..

      Has Barr ever gone after government?

      I know that in the Ruby Ridge case he went out of his way to stop justice from being applied to an FBI sniper who murdered a civilian.

You have painted the swamp into a corner that shrinks daily; bright headlights blind them there. Only the conclusion awaits and end it will, in the arms of American justice. Only in America, can we reach up, touch the stars, find President Trump and CTH. All good things come to those who wait.

    Bring James Wolfe before a federal grand jury. He has been convicted and sentenced. As with Bradley Manning, he cannot assert his 5th amendment right to remain silent. If he refuses to answer all questions, hold him in contempt and jail him until he answers.

    This guy Wolfe leaked all kinds of classified information. He was told to do it by sitting US senators.

    Several times here in comments our President’s comment about “running out of time” has been mentioned.

    I myself have wondered whether POTUS had a double meaning and ALSO meant that Mitch McConnell HIMSELF is “running out of time.”

    Perhaps Mitch (and his cronies) are subject to being exposed themselves in short order when the Unipartiers Dem and Rinos are finally outed as members of the treasonous coup.

    I have not seen this suggested nor queried. Am I the only one who reads a possible double meaning here?

    If I were to look at Washington, DC as a money manufacturing plant–a business so to speak, I would then employ “business” glasses to evaluate it’s performance and understanding of it’s operations, etc.

    Would I conclude it is a very profitable money manufacturing business? Yes, I would! Especially when one gathers up all the monies that flow into Washington and then look at the costs of producing that inflow to realize the profits remaining.

    The question then becomes: Where do these profits go after costs are deducted? Or, are these profits labeled, considered to be “handling fees” by those within the systems? Either way, these monies do go somewhere.

    President Trump is first and foremost a business man. He has spent his life creating profits. He is a serious combat trained business warrior in such endeavors. Look at the team he has brought into government to help him…business leaders, winners so to speak, warriors all.

    Trump’s team knows a lot of tricks, business tricks they have experienced in their working lives, day in and day out. They have seen most of the games one can play in business.

    President Trump stated openly in the beginning her did not like the way Washington behaved and especially did not like the way Washington did “business” with others around the world and within our country.

    A hostile takeover is what Trump presented to Washington, DC! The war was on…and is still on.

    What is missing from this fight? Clarity of principles is my guess, from both sides perhaps. I believe Trump is going to present a clarity of his principles this coming election, very very clearly to the American people. He must be careful in how he uses his words to do this.

    In order for President Trump to win re-election he should employ not only facts but “smart” emotional language that underscores his principles and counters the emotional language his opponents will continue to use while hiding their facts…which will be close to–if not actual, lies with no principles presented.

    If he does not do this, he just might lose this coming election, even if it is stolen from him. He must not wait till he sees “the white of their eyes” before he shoots! I believe he already senses this.

    Buckle up, the ride is going to be very bumpy and dangerous! Is Trump a General Patton?

    I suspect we are going to find out, one way or the other…

      Firing Wray this close to the elections, imo, would cause more trouble than it’s worth. Firing him AFTER the election, it seems, is pretty certain. It’s unfortunate, but my guess is Trump would’ve loved to fire him months ago, but the political reality is it’s going to have to wait.

    “The sword of Damocles”

    “As Cicero tells it, the king’s dissatisfaction came to a head one day after a court flatterer named Damocles showered him with compliments and remarked how blissful his life must be. “Since this life delights you,” an annoyed Dionysius replied, “do you wish to taste it yourself and make a trial of my good fortune?” When Damocles agreed, Dionysius seated him on a golden couch and ordered a host of servants wait on him. He was treated to succulent cuts of meat and lavished with scented perfumes and ointments. Damocles couldn’t believe his luck, but just as he was starting to enjoy the life of a king, he noticed that Dionysius had also hung a razor-sharp sword from the ceiling. It was positioned over Damocles’ head, suspended only by a single strand of horsehair. From then on, the courtier’s fear for his life made it impossible for him to savor the opulence of the feast or enjoy the servants. After casting several nervous glances at the blade dangling above him, he asked to be excused, saying he no longer wished to be so fortunate.”

    Why is this pertinent, who or what is the one sitting under the sword? I contend that it’s the swamp. President Trump is no dummy. He knew stepping into this morass what was coming against him and has prepared the ground. I believe he’s ready to cut the thread/horse hair if certain people fail to do certain things…the right thing. This is why the shot across the bow of Mitch McConnell and the swamp as a whole.

    I’m not going to say trust the plan, that’s boring, but trust the man President Donald J Trump. He’s earned it. Now comes the lion. He’s just beginning to move his pieces, see Ric Grenell. Now more than ever he will need his Deplorable Army we stick together, we will crush them. We listen to the swamp rats and fracture, we lose.

    This kind on entrenched criminality will not be fixed by one man in four years. But brothers and sisters, he’s banging on the swamps dam and it’s weakening. I think the next few weeks will tell the tale. Hold the line and be prepared, because it’s going to get crazy.

    People who supposedly know how the FBI operates say that any 302 developed is entered into the FBI data base.  If it was changed there should be tracks and if deleted the same.  That is unless there was an in-house “cleaning” operation.  Many heads should roll if that was done or just that Director Wray will not release the 302.  Either way, if true, he should be fired and should be prosecuted for obstructing an investigation.  I hope Mr. Wolfe has had the Flynn treatment and spilled the beans on the collaboration between the intelligence community and Senate members.  I would like to get rid of these damn Senators who have no balls and replace them with Senator Cotton types.

    I have a question and can’t find an answer that makes sense to me, so please chime in: What was Wolfe’s supposed motivation in leaking the FISA app? Yes, I know it was to his girlfriend. Was he merely showing off to his girlfriend? Was he just caught up in the leaking frenzy that was going on? Or was there some deeper motive? I mean, the cabal certainly didn’t want it out there and it has caused problems for them, so wasn’t he acting against them? I’m not inclined to believe he was a white hat, but didn’t he expose the truth? Did I miss something? Did Warner or Burr instruct him to? And for what reason?

    I think something to keep in mind is that Wray works for Barr, and IMO Barr should be supervising him, and directing him to take care of some obvious FBI problems like hiding documents from subpoenas, and hiding exculpatory evidence from Flynn, etc.

    People can make their own decisions about whether that is happening, but my opinion is that it is not or certainly not much of it is happening. And that gives me more concern about Barr than Wray who I wrote off as corrupt long ago.

    I’ve been giving the matter some thought. It may be (and Wray’s only hope is that it is) a head fake. Get someone to talk about the original 302 in interviews with investigating agents and play that it is missing the the crime of false statements comes into play. Joe Pientka missing is also an interesting factoid. Just ask him, right? Both the writer and the writing are missing and hidden away. I think quite a few of the “missing declass” items fall into this bucket. Part of the evidence being assembled.

    Here’s what I am thinking, and while I speak as a lawyer I have no clue about anything other than non-litigation matters: I think quite a bit of what went on here falls into “non-criminal” activity, as reprehensible as it may be; but, but, but, it becomes criminal if part of a scheme, a conspiracy which connects to one or more criminal acts. The conspiracy that connects players is what will get them into charges that stick, and Barr and Durham are assembling the evidence that indisputably tracks the conspiracy. We aren’t dealing with coincidences, nor a “hive mind” – the acts of the many individuals involved are all connected by texts, emails, phone calls, meetings, etc. Who gave the orders, who directed the activities – think of Clinesmith’s alteration of the emails, do you really think he did that on his own? He was instructed to do so,and there is evidence of that instruction, when, and by whom. Durham’s grand juries are working on the RICO elements of all this. The conspiracy connecting individuals committing separate criminal acts is the crime too. Sedition.
