Judicial Watch Receives Originating FBI “EC” Electronic Communication – The Start of Crossfire Hurricane…

The “EC” or electronic communication that started the July 31st counterintelligence operation was one of the original declassification requests from Devin Nunes original bucket list in 2018.   The EC has been declassified and Judicial Watch received it.

Originally the EC was presumed to be a CIA communication to the FBI detailing the need for a counterintelligence investigation; however, the EC as presented is originated by FBI Agent Peter Strzok and centers around George Papadopoulos.

This means Crossfire Hurricane, the FBI investigation into the Trump campaign, was predicated based on gossip, innuendo and rumors related to George Papadopoulos.   The information was relayed by Australian Diplomat Alexander Downer.

(Judicial Watch) […] The redacted document details seeming third hand information that the Russian government “had been seeking prominent members of the Donald Trump campaign in which to engage to prepare for potential post-election relations should Trump be elected U.S. President.” The document also alleges Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos, claimed to an unnamed party that “they (the Russians) could assist the Trump campaign with the anonymous release of information during the campaign that would be damaging to Hillary Clinton.” (more)

The EC is below:

If we take the CTH timeline on George Papadopoulos it will help to assemble the picture of what took place:

♦Early Feb. 2016 After leaving the campaign of Ben Carson, George Papadopoulos joins London Center for International Law Practice (LCILP)

♦Mid March, 2016, Papdopoulos travels to Rome as part of LCILP role. During visit Papadopoulos introduced to Joseph Mifsud. Mifsud introduced as professor for London Academy for Diplomacy, London England.

♦March 17,2016, Papadopoulos returns to London.

♦March 21, 2016, President Trump names Papadopoulos amid list of foreign policy advisors, with focus on energy sector.

♦March 24, 2016, Papadopoulos meets Mifsud in London. Mifsud accompanied by Olgya Polonskya who Mifsud introduced as former student/Putin niece. [sketchy]

♦March 31, 2016, Trump campaign foreign policy team meeting, Washington DC. Trump International Hotel. [famous table photograph with Papadopoulos, Sessions, Trump]

♦Early April, 2016, Mifsud continues contact w/ Papadopoulos via email. Ms. Polonskya also emailing Papadopoulos; however, later discovered Mifsud actually writing Polonskya emails. Papadopoulos returns to London, U.K.

♦April 11, 2016, Mifsud emails Papadopoulos about his own upcoming travel to Russia. Suggests meeting for following day, April 12.

♦April 12, 2016, Papadopoulos and Mifsud meet at Andaz Hotel in London, U.K. This meeting is in advance of Mifsud traveling to Russia.

♦April 18, 2016, Mifsud emails Papadopoulos from Russia. Introduces Ivan Timofeev.

♦April 25, 2016, Mifsud returns to London after stopover in Rome.

♦April 26, 2016, Papadopoulos and Mifsud meet again at Andaz Hotel in London, U.K. During meeting Mifsud claims Russians “have dirt” on Hillary Clinton; “emails of Clinton”; and “thousands of emails”.

♦May 6, 2016, Papadopoulos gets call from Christian Cantor (Israeli Embassy) wanting to introduce his ‘girlfriend’ Erika Thompson (Australian Embassy aide to Ambassador Alexander Downer). They meet at a London Pub.

[NOTE: Mueller cites the content of May 6, 2016, meeting as communicating “clinton emails” from Papadopoulos; however, Mueller conflates and falsely attributes the content material of this Erika Thompson meeting. Mueller attributes content to Ambassador Downer meeting with Papadopoulos on May 10, 2016.  Conflation appears intentional]

♦May 6, 2016, Following initial meeting, Papadopoulos gets email from Erika Thompson suggesting meeting with her boss, Australian Ambassador Alexander Downer.

♦May 10, 2016, Papadopoulos meets Ambassador Downer at the Kensington Wine Rooms in London, England.

MEDIA CLAIM: “Downer met with George Papadopoulos, where Papadopoulos — having been introduced through two intermediaries, Christian Cantor and Erika Thompson — mentioned that Russians had material on Hillary Clinton.”

Both Papadopoulos and Downer refute their May 10th meeting discussed Clinton emails.  Papadopoulos notes that Ambassador Downer is recording their conversation.

Alexander Downer is the Australian diplomat who engaged George Papadopoulos in London just days after U.S. intelligence asset Joseph Mifsud told Papadopoulos that Russians had emails from Hillary Clinton.  The communication from Ambassador Downer to the United States is what’s referenced in that EC above.

On April 18, 2019, coinciding with the release of the Mueller report, the Australian government declassified and released information which is specifically connected to the EC released today.  We can take the Australian release and overlay it into some really fantastic research on Alexander Downer, previously done by TWE:

In 1956, Australia — alongside New Zealand — were both added to the newly expanded UKUSA Agreement, which extended intelligence co-operation to those two countries with the current members of the agreement — United Kingdom, United States and Canada — which formed the alliance known as “Five Eyes”.

Many years later, on February 22, 2006, Alexander Downer and Bill Clinton signed a memorandum of understanding to spread grant money over the course of four years to a project to provide screening and drug treatment to AIDS patients in Asia as part of the Clinton Foundation.

On February 18, 2014, Downer was announced as Australia’s next High Commissioner to London, where he would replace Mike Rann.

Between March 7–13, 2016, Director James Comey visited Australia and met with Attorney General George Brandis and Justice Minister Michael Keenan.

Three days later, on March 16, Director James Clapper arrived in Australia from New Zealand via a C-17 Globemaster.

On May 10, 2016, at the Kensington Wine Rooms in London, England, Downer met with George Papadopoulos, where Papadopoulos — having been introduced through two intermediaries, Christian Cantor and Erika Thompson — mentioned that Russians had material on Hillary Clinton.

There’s a little bit of a conflict in the dates (likely due to the significantly different time zones between London and Australia). According to Downer’s calendar schedule the meeting with Papadopoulos was May 11th, 2016 (as released).

♦May 11, 2016, Ambassador Downer files notes to Australian government about the content of the conversation and the outlook of the Trump campaign foreign policy.

Here’s the heavily redacted cable communique from Downer to Canberra, AU office, on May 11th, 2016, the day he meting Papadopoulos (as released):

Here’s the excerpt from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report that describes the events. However, worth noting Mueller assigns this meeting to May 6th, 2016. [Conflating earlier meeting with Erika Thompson – with Ambassador Downer meeting with Papadopoulos on May 10, 2016. Conflation appears intentional.]

[Page #89, Muller Report]

Alexander Downer decided to inform the United States Embassy in London, England about his conversation with Papadopoulos, upon the release of the Democratic National Committee’s e-mails by WikiLeaks on July 22, 2016.

On July 23, 2016, the Australian Government contacted Elizabeth Dibble at the United States Embassy to inform her about Downer and Papadopoulos’s conversation.

♦July 26, 2016, Mueller says (pg 89, fn465) Australia informs U.S. government of Papadopoulos statements about Clinton emails.

Somehow the information was transmitted to the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Crossfire Hurricane was then opened on July 31, 2016 by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Two days later, on August 2, 2016, Special Agent Peter Strzok and another agent at the Federal Bureau of Investigation met with Downer directly in London to discuss his conversation with Papadopoulos further. Strzok then received reading materials, which he texted about to Lisa Page.

However, it’s worth noting information provided by Devin Nunes (April 2018) as it pertains to an unofficial channel of information that surrounded these events:

REPRESENTATIVE DEVIN NUNES: “That’s correct. So it took us a long time to actually get this, what’s called the “electronic communication”, as we know it now for your viewers, what it is it’s the original intelligence, original reasons that the counterintelligence was started.

Now this is really important to us because the counterintelligence investigation uses the tools of our intelligence services that are not supposed to be used on American citizens. And we’ve long wanted to know: what intelligence did you have that actually led to this investigation? So what we’ve found now, after the investigators have reviewed it, is that in fact there was no intelligence.

So we have a traditional partnership with what’s called the Five Eyes Agreement. Five Eyes Agreement involves our friends in Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, Canada, and of course, us. So long time processes and procedures in place where we move intelligence across.

We are not supposed to spy on each others’ citizens. And it’s worked well. And it continues to work well. And we know it’s working well because there was no intelligence that passed through the Five Eyes channels to our government.

And that’s why we had to see that original communication. So now we’re trying to figure out, as you know, we are investigating the State Department, we think there’s some major irregularities in the State Department, and we’re trying to figure out how this information about Mr. Papadopoulos of all people who was supposedly meeting with some folks in London, how that made it over across into the FBI’s hands.” (Video Interview Link)

    So Trump’s firing of State Department IG Steve Linick makes sense. Linick is supposed to be the Inspector General, but never throws a flag on the field to call attention to the EC which originates the entire hoax based on no intelligence. Let Nasty Pelosi and Schiff for Brains launch another impeachment drive. It will blow up in their faces and only further reveal the depth and breadth of the Obamao administration’s treachery.

And, then his role in the “Flynn lied to me” story has been a misplaced itch that I can’t get scratched. Some see him as “quiet,” “nonconfrontational.”
        In times like these, we need a confrontational leader. The media and pundits try to paint this “active reaction” as unpresidential and off-script, somehow out of control. I have never felt as if President Trump is out of control. He just isn’t controlled by what Leon Panetta called “coordinated messaging.” He sends his OWN message–not the message of his handlers.
        That is what I want to vote for in 2024. I’m not sure Pence is capable of having his own message.

        Q: “WHERE IS that next Trump after he’s done here? THERE’S the question we need to answer and find”…
        A: The answer I think must/should be clear. It damn well must be US of the Heartland who’ve been at the ass end of this horrific sojourn foisted on the Heartland, often in acquiescence, for an obscene amount of time. It’s FOOLS wish to think one man PDT, God Bless him, can right the wrongs we have as much as the Mordorian Serpents electorally validated since F. Roosevelt predicate Woodrow Wilson – then like gangrene, slovenly ushered to a deadly height as the marxists golden calf (and many like him). A spectacular incompetent beneficiary of “affirmative” action – Barack Hussein Obama.

        Obama retains the DNC tag: “America’s first black president” despite being half white via a maternal side promiscuous miscegenate hippie and alcoholic Kenyan marxist (no need to read extracurricula “omg” into these Facts)… raised by his marxist maternal grandparents beginning in of all places HI. who introduced him to his “mentor” Frank Marshall Davis who was well known to the Famous But Incompetent as CPUSA Member #47544. All this failed the scrutiny of the media stenography pools, and of course, Twatter’s legal brigade. And Kahkid Mansour as detailed in the 2008 NY1 interview with Percy Sutton (RIP) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4EcC0QAd0Ug. I grew up in Brooklyn NY during Sutton’s time. He a Tuskegee Airman, successful lawyer, NYS Assembyman, Manhattan Borough president during the 1960’s. Though Sutton was an unabashed liberal he was a soft spoken, measured, and intelligent soul never given to loud deceitful slander. An American Patriot during through one of the worst eras in American History. I liked and respected him.

Rosenstein is a complete weasel, he’d be a good candidate because you can get him to talk once afraid. The Ohrs are afraid as well. They’ll talk eventually. Strzok will after you penetrate that snarling façade and show him it’s real and he’s going to prison. He’ll break. Comey, Clapper and Brennan will hide behind multiple layers and their Deep State allies, plus their connection to the White House. That’s for later.

He “manages” the Hillary crime, he concocts Crossfire out of thin air, he manages the corrupt interrogation process of Flynn. Forget about everything else, was there ONLY one agent in the FBI? Why would a supervisor NOT see that endlessly having ONE person directing MULTIPLE, sensitive, political investigations is improper? Certainly Comey saw this evolve. He said nothing at any point about the simple fact of the optics of such an arrangement can be easily argued as suspicious (to say the least)? Comey, McCabe and Strzok’s direct supervisor (Priestap?) need to explain why Strzok was, apparently, essential in all these instances.

    Last, what in the WORLD is a diplomat recording a conversation with a NOBODY like Pap? From Australia no less! Talk about a setup! Downer, a big Clinton fan, goes out of his way to SET UP A MEETING with a political nobody and that, in and of itself, is absurd. At this point, Trump was considered way behind in the race, right? Hillary was a given. Why would Downer give a Pap the time of day? This is beyond the pale, Keystone Kops type, “intrigue”. Downer was on a mission, directed by someone here (Brennan most likely) and he concocted a nefarious event out of blue.

        I don’t believe Strozk was CIA. His texts with Page back in the early August, 2016 time frame (early CH) show a fair amount of mutual contempt for “the Agency.” Strozk was particularly triggered by a comment somebody [name redacted] from “the Agency” made at a group meeting about CH: “This is being run out of the White House.” Strozk shot back, “Maybe for YOU it is!” (August 5, 2016 Strozk text to Page)

        This January 3 text evinces the same contempt for the IC “with partisan axes to grind.” Strozk was on the FBI “counterintelligence” side of the ongoing turf war.

    “Never let a crisis go to waste” is their line. Maybe the hack was a leak and not a hack. Maybe the leak was a crisis they did not let go to waste. They turned it into spying on Trump. And it morphed into this monster.

      The EC above DOES NOT refer to DNC hack/emails.
      It refers to Hillary emails, and one would think of the 30000 deleted ones. This was the hook to conflate a useful tidbit that would get a Trump Jr to say “I like it,” especially after Trump Sr said publically it would be great if someone out there had them (Hillary’s 30000 emails).
      This was the first “crossover,” and the second crossover was the informal communications of Downer (or is it Ericka Thompson) that is laundered thru Deputy Chief of Mission (UK, I guess) to Legat, from whom Strzok cited as the reason to open Crossfire Hurricane.

      Crossover — Crossfire. Interesting. And it was to be as impactful as a Hurricane.

    The Democrats, and their lackeys in the Deep State and media, were frantic about the emails being published by WikiLeaks. They were desperate to discredit the material and so hatched a narrative that the “hack” was the work of the dastardly Russians who were doctoring the emails to implicate Clinton and others in corrupt schemes. That was her defense – preemptively cast suspicion on Wikileaks by alleging what they were publishing was Russian disinformation to hurt her campaign because Putin feared a Clinton presidency.

    Remember – Hillary Clinton had turned over only a portion of her private emails, withheld 30,000 she deemed “personal”, then deleted the archive files, wiped her servers with bleachbit, and destroyed devices. Her IT guy even deleted and bleachbit wiped AFTER a subpoena was issued to preserve and turn over the information (an act of criminality for which Comey’s FBI/Lynch’s DOJ gave him immunity.)

    Assange kept teasing that the drip-drip-drip was leading to something HUGE, which would result in Hillary Clinton being arrested. Donald Trump was joking that perhaps the Russians have copies of the deleted emails – remember, too, that at the time all the insiders knew the private server had in fact been compromised by one or more foreign intelligence services.

    Taken altogether, the Clinton campaign was terrified that the missing 30,000 emails would in fact surface, and she knew what was in them. She was desperate to discredit them, and so hatched a scheme to not only blame the Russians but also implicate the Trump campaign in her paranoid “vast Russian/Right Wing conspiracy.”

    And the rest is history.

It was at this key moment that the LCFILP told George “There is professor you have to meet in Italy before you go and we will pay for your trip and accommodations.” George went, met Misfud and the rest is history. George has said he viewed the trip to Italy as kinda a free vacation in his last two weeks of work. Sure seems to me that even if Misfud cannot be found, the LCFILP that arranged for, paid for and pushed George to go to Italy to meet Misfud, is up to its eyeballs in the initiation of the Misfud “push” of derogatory information and contact on George and needs to be investigated by Durham and his white hat FBI agents. No one gets a free vacation from their employer after giving notice and clearly the LCFILP played a role in setting George and the Trump team up. To unwind this thing, the beginning point, Misfud or no Misfud, is the LCFILP!

    Is this going to be their excuse or do we have to go back further for the true origin/smoking gun where they cooked up the PapaD entrapment and honey pot that were targeting him?

  25. When the existence of the “Electronic Communication” that launched Crossfire Hurricane was first mentioned, I expected the EC to be a summary, of sorts, distilled from various IC sources. Or (at least) a substantial piece of corroborated intelligence. This garbage presented by Peter Strzok is neither.

    What is SEEMS to be is a thin excuse MANUFACTURED by Strzok (at the behest of a superior) to JUSTIFY launching a surveillance operation they ALREADY desired. But, if any prosecutions come out of all this (which I doubt will ever happen) people will be “Jedi Mind-Tricked” into believing that “All Roads Point To Peter Strzok As The Sole Instigator And Driving Force Behind All Things ‘Crossfire Hurricane'” which is total BS. HE acted on the orders of others, and Clowned It Up when appearing in Congress as a means to draw the blame unto himself. He’s a Lightning Rod, albeit a VERY culpable one.
