Interesting Segment – Trey Gowdy Discusses FBI Investigation and The Flynn-Kislyak Transcripts He Has Read…

On the topic of the FBI capture and use of the December 29, 2016, Flynn-Kislyak phone call…  First we had a hunch; then it became a suspicion… that evolved into a likelihood… that has now become a strong probability.

The capture of the December 29th phone call, which generated the raw “CR cuts“, was an FBI summary, modified for a specific interpretation.  Much like the missing 302 there is now a very strong probability the FBI ‘CR cuts’ do not represent the actual call content.

In this short interview segment Trey Gowdy alludes to one issue, and speaks directly to another.  First, the only reason the FBI opened the internal INSD review is because the information previously hidden has become public.  Second, the Flynn-Kislyak calls that Trey Gowdy has reviewed were “boring” nothing-burgers.  WATCH:

.

SELECTIVE CAPTURE – Did you note the part where the FBI told Gowdy some of the Flynn phone calls were “not captured”?  Wouldn’t it be a very convenient framework if the FBI was going to summarize one of those non-captured calls into a “CR cut.” 

FBI: “Oh, sorry, we don’t have the actual transcript, but we do have a summary of what we interpreted that call content to be.”  Huh, funny that.

Lastly, does anyone else find it odd that now is Trey Gowdy admitting that he viewed the Flynn-Kislyak phone call transcripts.  I wonder why he waited to say that….

    It’s important how many bandwagon patriots there were in early 2017 grandstanding on Flynn’s grave. Everything that is Bob Mueller’s fraudulent investigation rides on Flynn. Think back to 2017 and all the Republicans tut-tutting about Russia, and their deep concern and grave intonations.

    Jensen’s review, precipitated by the two false FISAs, and resulting in DOJ dismissing charges, is like a dam that has burst. Suddenly, it’s patently obvious even to the most bitter left wing fever swamp partisan that the “conspiracy theory” is now a conspiracy FACT. (They just don’t care because they hate the President , so anything goes. See also: Judge Sullivan)

    Anyway, now that the dam has burst, the data is flooding out. It’s like any secret that gets out. Once the story collapses, everyone even remotely involved starts dumping what they knew about it either to save face or cash in.

    The FBI probably has another “302 problem” where what they claimed does not match what was actually said.

    People like Rice who are demanding the transcripts be released are doing what Schiff did a couple of weeks ago. Grandstanding, trying to inflate their personal protective bubble, and hoping for goodness sake nobody actually reads the transcript.

    What Grenell is saying about the rest of the transcripts is that if you read them together, the FBI’s selective edits become apparent. Flynn was doing his job, did nothing wrong, and the FBI did a version of NBC editing the George Zimmerman 911 call.

    I’ll also be interested to see if the IC has their own intercept of the Kislyak call via NSA that we can match up to whatever summary or cut the FBI produced.

      Anyway, the IG Report was an earthquake portrayed by the media as a mouse fart, but the result was the DOJ and FISA Court determining the FBI had illegally obtained those warrants. The resulting Jensen review and DOJ dismissal are seismic shocks, too. It has Washington rattled. The media has no idea how to report it without revealing their own complicity and without admitting the whole Mueller thing was a fraud.

      The dam has burst. Expect a lot more Johnny Come Lately’s to come forward and talk about how they suspected this all along…and gosh what a shame it was…and they were the lone voice of reason…etc.

      The Obamaites will of course claim there’s a cover-up going on, and that additional declassification prove Trump is covering up. Yeah, it’s crazy, but consider their base.

      Like I tell the Progs on the blogs who try to argue this stuff, “Every single thing you think you know was told to you by the same people who testified under oath to Congress that everything they said on TV was a lie.”

      We’re going to find out we were wrong about some things. That’s okay. It tells us why Durham’s job is so hard…

          In my view, what makes Durham’s job hard is that a lot of this coup rested on a platform of perfectly LEGAL activities. That’s what “by the book” is all about. It’s why they kept Crossfire Razor open – the FBI couldn’t legally interview Flynn without tying it to an active investigation. It was “legal”. We can respond that the CR investigation wasn’t properly predicated, or they were minutes from closing it out, but that is at least debatable and another layer of the onion that must be peeled back.

          The dossier is another example. There’s nothing illegal about the document itself. There’s nothing illegal about giving it to the FBI. There’s nothing illegal about looking into its allegations. The criminality is deeper down and easier to conceal in the fraudulent FISAs and lies to the FISA court.

          It’s not illegal to lie on CNN as long as you tell the truth to Congress and then Congress hides the transcript.

          It’s not illegal to edit a 302 or submit it late. That’s a procedural violation. The question is in what way was it edited, by whom and why. That’s harder to prove in terms of criminality.

          It’s not illegal to use “about” queries in the FISA database, and it’s not illegal to unmask US persons if you file the right forms.

          In many ways, it’ll come down to things like perjury, falsifying government forms, lying to a Federal Court, and then proving it was a criminal conspiracy.

          That’s what makes it hard.

          • On the issue of opening the investigation to begin with, from the Horowitz report:

            As detailed in Chapter Two, the DIOG provides for two types of predicated investigations, Preliminary Investigations and Full Investigations. A Preliminary Investigation may be opened based upon “any allegation or information” indicative of possible criminal activity or threats to the national security; a Full Investigation may be opened based upon an “articulable factual basis” of possible criminal activity or threats to the national security. In cases opened as Preliminary Investigations, all lawful investigative methods (including CHS and UCE operations) may be used except for mail opening, physical searches requiring a search warrant, electronic surveillance requiring a judicial order or warrant (Title III wiretap or a FISA order), or requests under Title VII of FISA. A Preliminary Investigation may be converted to a Full Investigation if the available information provides predication for a Full Investigation. – Horowitz page 53

            How were they able to open an Full Investigation with hearsay as the only evidence? Who thinks that hearsay is an “articulable factual basis” ? Then they traveled to London; interviewed Downer and found that they did not even get the hearsay right, there was no offer of “assistance” from the Russians there was hearsay that the Russians had HRC emails. The analytics after the Papadopolous thread broke down expanded their web, with no further evidence to support any of the claims. At this point it was a false crime looking for a criminal. The Steel memo’s were not in play at the time they decided to go after Flynn, Page and Manafort. Those came into play later in the process as somehow justification that what they were doing was legit.

            We know the FFG was Alexander Downer; and we also know he told the FBI they got it wrong, he has said so publicly and its also in the Horowitz report.

            Footnote 169 of the Horowitz report:
            As we describe in Chapter Four, although the FBI first received reporting from Christopher Steele regarding alleged Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. elections in early July 2016, the agents and analysts investigating the FFG information (the Crossfire Hurricane team) did not become aware of the Steele reporting until September 19, 2016. We found no evidence the Steele election reporting was known to or used by FBI officials involved in the decision to open the Crossfire Hurricane investigation.

            What possible justification did they have to keep this open?

        How To Handle Media Reporters that took Illegal Leaks: Recall How Special Counsel Patrick Fitzgerald (James Comey Godfather To Fitzgerald Children), Investigating Media on CIA Leak Grand Jury Investigations.

        On 1 October 2004, federal Judge Thomas F. Hogan found Miller in Contempt of Court for refusing to appear before a Federal Grand Jury, which was investigating who had leaked to reporters the fact that Valerie Plame was a CIA operative. Miller did not write an article about the subject at the time of the leak, but others did, notably Robert Novak, spurring the investigation.

        Judge Hogan sentenced her to 18 months in jail, but stayed the sentence while her appeal proceeded. On 15 February 2005, the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit unanimously upheld Judge Hogan’s ruling. On 17 June 2005, the US Supreme Court declined to hear the case. On6 July 2005, Judge Hogan ordered Miller to serve her sentence at “a suitable jail within the metropolitan area of the District of Columbia”. She was taken to Alexandria City Jail on 7 July 2005.

        In a separate case, Federal Judge Robert W. Sweet ruled on February 24, 2005, that Miller was not required to reveal who in the government leaked word of an impending raid to her. Patrick Fitzgerald, the same Prosecutor who had Miller jailed in the Plame case, argued that Miller’s calls to groups suspected of funding terrorists had tipped them off to the raid and allowed them time to destroy evidence. Fitzgerald wanted Miller’s phone records to confirm the time of the tip and determine who had leaked the information to Miller in the first place. Judge Sweet held that because Fitzgerald could not demonstrate in advance that the phone records would provide the information he sought the prosecutor’s needs were outweighed by a ‘reporter’s privilege’ to keep sources confidential.

        On 1 August 2006, a 3-Judge Panel of the Second Circuit Court of Appeals reversed Judge Sweet’s decision, holding 2–1 that Federal Prosecutors could inspect the telephone records of Miller and Philip Shenon. Judge Ralph K. Winter, Jr. wrote: “No grand jury can make an informed decision to pursue the investigation further, much less to indict or not indict, without the reporters’ evidence”.

        Prior to her jailing for Civil Contempt, Miller’s Lawyers argued that it was pointless to imprison her because she would never talk or reveal confidential sources. Under such circumstances, argued her lawyers, jail term would be “merely punitive” and would serve no purpose. Arguing that Miller should be confined to her home and could forego Internet access and cellphone use, Miller’s lawyers suggested that “impairing her unrestricted ability to do her job as an investigative journalist would present the strictest form of coercion to her”. Failing that, Miller’s lawyers asked that she be sent to a women’s facility in Danbury, Connecticut, nearer to “Ms. Miller’s 76-year-old husband”.

        On 17 September 2005, The Washington Post reported that Miller had received a “parade of prominent government and media officials” during her first 11 weeks in prison, including visits by former U.S. Republican Senator Bob Dole, NBC News anchor Tom Brokaw, and John R. Bolton, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations. After her release on 29 September 2005, Miller agreed to disclose to the grand jury the identity of her source, Lewis Libby, Vice President Cheney’s Chief of Staff.

        On 30 January 2007, Miller took the stand as a witness for the prosecution against Lewis Libby. Miller discussed 3 conversations she had had with Libby. In her first appearance before the grand jury, Miller said she could not remember. According to The New York Times, when asked if Libby discussed Valerie Plame, Miller responded in the affirmative, “adding that Libby had said Wilson worked at the agency’s (C.I.A.) division that dealt with limiting the proliferation of unconventional weapons”. The trial resulted in guilty verdicts against Libby.

        Refusal to disclose source
        In July 2005, several months prior to her October 2005 resignation from The New York Times, Miller was jailed for contempt of court for refusing to testify before a federal grand jury investigating a leak naming Valerie Plame as a CIA officer. While Miller never wrote about Plame, she was believed to be in possession of evidence relevant to the leak investigation. According to a subpoena, Miller met with an unnamed government official, later revealed to be I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby, Vice President Dick Cheney’s Chief of Staff, on 8 July 2003. Plame’s CIA identity was divulged publicly in a column by conservative political commentator Robert Novak on 14 July 2003. Novak’s source was revealed to have not been Libby, but Richard Armitage of the Department of State.

        On 16 July 2005, The Washington Post reported that Miller could face criminal contempt charges, which could have extended her jail time 6 months beyond the 4 months then anticipated. The Post suggested that special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald was particularly interested in hearing Miller’s version of her encounter with Libby. Filings by Fitzgerald reportedly alleged that Miller’s defiance of the court constituted a crime. On 29 September 2005, after spending 85 days in jail, Miller was released following a telephone call with Libby. He had reconfirmed the release of confidentiality. Under oath, Miller was questioned by Fitzgerald before a Federal Grand Jury the following day, but was not relieved of contempt charges until after testifying again on 12 October 2005.

        For her second grand jury appearance, Miller produced a notebook from a previously undisclosed meeting with Libby on 23 June 2003. This was several weeks before Joseph Wilson’s New York Times editorial was published. This belied the theory that Libby was retaliating against Wilson for his Times editorial. According to Miller’s notes from that earlier meeting, Libby disclosed that Joseph Wilson’s wife was a CIA employee involved in her husband’s trip to Niger. Miller’s notebook from her meeting with Libby contains the name “Valerie Flame”, This reference occurred 6 days before Novak published Plame’s name and unmasked her as a CIA operative.

        Miller’s grand jury account was the basis for her last article in The New York Times. The newspaper published Miller’s first-person account, “My Four Hours Testifying in the Federal Grand Jury Room”, on 16 October 2005. Miller said she could not remember who gave her the name “Valerie Plame” but she was sure it didn’t come from Libby.

        Miller testified as a witness on 30 January 2007, at the trial of Scooter Libby, which began in January 2007. The trial ended on March, with Libby’s conviction on 4 of 5 counts on Process Crimes, though none of the counts had to do with actually revealing Plame’s name to the media???

        I think that’s a possibility. The IC would probably have been eavesdropping on Kislyak. As Comey and Clapper said, they were tasked to look for Russian escalations of the sanctions.

        Depends on what Grenell means when he says they don’t have everything in the IC. OK, well, where did the FBI get it’s Kislyak call from? We’re all just speculating at this point. Did they make a cut of an NSA transcript? Did they get a copy from a foreign government? (which might be illegal). Did the FBI straight-up tap Kislyak’s phone?

        Lots of questions! Grenell seems to be saying that what DNI is declassifying will provide a lot more context.

      President Trump needs to do what President Obama Administration used the 1917 Espionage Act with unprecedented vigor, prosecuting more people under that law for leaking sensitive information to the public than all previous administrations combined. Obama’s Justice Department dug into confidential communications between news organizations and their sources as part of that effort.

      In 2013 the Obama administration obtained the records of 20 Associated Press office phone lines and reporters’ home and cell phones, seizing them without notice, as part of an investigation into the disclosure of information about a foiled al-Qaida terrorist plot.

      AP was not the target of the investigation. But it called the seizure a “massive and unprecedented intrusion” into its news-gathering activities, betraying information about its operations “that the government has no conceivable right to know.”

      Obama’s Justice Department also secretly dogged Fox News journalist James Rosen, getting his phone records, tracking his arrivals and departures at the State Department through his security-badge use, obtaining a search warrant to see his personal emails and naming him as a possible criminal conspirator in the investigation of a news leak.

      “The Obama administration,” The New York Times editorial board wrote at the time, “has moved beyond protecting government secrets to threatening fundamental freedoms of the press to gather news.”

      This is why Admiral Rogers called for NSA Audits in 2016 in the Middle of an Election and when FBI John Carlin found out, Resigned to Retied from the FBI the next day?

      What was claimed rectified under Obama Administration in 2009 was not corrected and 2016 and 2017 proved otherwise…..NSA warrant less surveillance (“Warrantless-Wiretapping”) refers to the surveillance of persons within the United States, including United States citizens, during the collection of notionally foreign intelligence by the National Security Agency (NSA) as part of the Terrorist Surveillance Program.

      The NSA was authorized to monitor, without obtaining a FISA warrant, the phone calls, Internet activity, text messages and other communication involving any party believed by the NSA to be outside the U.S., even if the other end of the communication lay within the U.S.

      Critics claimed that the program was an effort to silence critics of the Administration and its handling of several controversial issues. Under public pressure, the Administration allegedly ended the program in January 2007 and resumed seeking warrants from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC).

      In 2008 Congress passed the FISA Amendments Act of 2008, which relaxed some original FISC requirements.

      During the Barack Obama Administration, the Department of Justice continued to defend the warrant less surveillance program in court, arguing that a ruling on the merits would reveal state secrets. In April 2009 officials at the United States Department of Justice acknowledged that the NSA had engaged in “Over Collection” of domestic communications in excess of the FISC’s authority, but claimed that the acts were unintentional and had since been rectified.

      This is why Susan Rice is worried Today!

It’s all over, including the millions (sorry, oh foolish ones — and you, little dog Media, ptui) who were misled into voting for Obama/Soetoro in the first place (even I didn’t do that, and as a professionally distracted physicist,I voted Democrat for President through 8 straight presidential elections, before The Great Impostor — funny how epithets for Little Lord Barry multiply, like rabbits even).

        What is coming, for all of the deluded, is The Great Disappointment (!) — a veritable Armageddon — in all they believed so feverishly before. Then we will have to work on getting them back on their own two feet, off of their backs (they’ll want to lie down, and we can’t let them, nor give them any hope it is all a dream — those who WON’T snap out of it, politicians like Pelosi, Schiff, etc., will have to be put out to pasture, hee-hee-hee-hee-hee…sorry, I can’t stop, when I think about that, /s).

        I think the quick confirmation of Ratcliff was desperation after the way the Grennell was absolutely hammering the deep state with a nuclear-powered sledgehammer.

      In 2013, the United States Department of Justice, under Attorney General Eric Holder, came under scrutiny from the media and some members of Congress for subpoenaing phone records from the Associated Press (AP). Under similar justifications, a 2010 subpoena approved by Eric Holder implicated Fox News reporter, James Rosen, as a possible co-conspirator under the Espionage Act of 1917.

      Investigators gained access to the times of his phone calls, and two days of Rosen’s emails. Stephen Jin-Woo Kim eventually pleaded guilty to violating the Espionage Act for communicating North Korean nuclear test plans to Rosen. These investigations provoked considerable criticism from major news organizations, and precipitated the revision of media guidelines at the Department of Justice.

      On 17 May 2013, the Washington Post reported the Justice Department had monitored reporter Rosen’s activities by tracking his visits to the State Department, through phone traces, timing of calls and his personal emails in a probe regarding possible news leaks of classified information in 2009 about North Korea. In obtaining the warrants, they labeled Rosen a “possible co-conspirator” with Stephen Kim.

      In a written statement, the Justice Department said it had followed “all applicable laws, regulations, and longstanding Department of Justice policies intended to safeguard the First Amendment interests of the press in reporting the news and the public in receiving it.”

      Some analysts have described the Justice Department’s actions as “aggressive investigative methods”, that have a chilling effect on news organizations’ ability to play a watchdog role.

      Fox News contributor Judge Andrew Napolitano commented: “This is the first time that the federal government has moved to this level of taking ordinary, reasonable, traditional, lawful reporter skills and claiming they constitute criminal behavior.”

      On 24 February 2014 the Attorney General Eric Holder signed the final new rules that lay down the guidelines for the U.S. Department of Justice on seeking information from journalists. The Attorney General’s Order No. 3420-2014 mentions it lays down the “Policy regarding obtaining information from, or records of, members of the news media; and regarding questioning, arresting, or charging members of the news media.

He was honest enough and his legal training prevented him from participating in the coup and lying about Trump, but he wasn’t very helpful.

Who possibly better to tap and surveil than this 40 year friend of Trumps, who is as in-your-face as you can get and all but gave Mueller the finger on national TV appearances daring him to indict him.

    With their total flagrance in their belief that they could get away with telling the FISC anything and getting their FISA warrant, it would have been a piece of cake to create an affidavit tying Stone to WikiLIeaks, which connects to guess what ……..

    Whilst it would be better to have copies of the recordings of the calls, especially the 29th December call, we know that the transcripts are nothing burgers as Gowdy alludes to. Consider:-

    (i) Having reviewed the transcipts, on 4th January, the FBI decided to close down the investigation on Flynn, because they had found no derogatory information/evidence. This confirms that there can be nothing adverse in the transcripts/cuts.

    (ii) Had there been anything damning in the tanscripts/cuts, Mueller would have used these in his Report, to bash Trump and strengthen the Russian collusion/conspiracy hoax.

    (iii) Had there been anything damning in the tanscripts/cuts, there would not simply have been a leak to the press that Flynn had talked with the Russians, but rather the contents of that call would have been leaked to the press, so that the press could further bash Trump and his staff, and further make out that they are in the pocket of Putin and doing Russia’s bidding etc.

    (iv) Had there been anything damning in the tanscripts/cuts, then the van Grack would have used these when dealing with Ms. Powell’s request for further evidence, not previously disclosed by the DOJ. Why not provide evidence that assists the prosecution, but refrain from disclosing evidence that weakens the prosecution case.

    It is all smoke and mirrors and diversionary tactics. Various fractions have different reasons for now (Irepeat now) wanting their release. Everyone knows that there is nothing prejudicial to Flynn in them.

    by JOSH GERSTEIN, KYLE CHENEY and JOSH MEYER
    7 Sep 2018

    “Friday’s hearing took a dramatic and unexpected turn when Papadopoulos’ attorney Thomas Breen lit into Trump, arguing that the president himself was more culpable than his client.

    Trump, Breen said, “hindered this investigation more than George Papadopoulos ever could,” by calling the FBI’s Russia inquiry a “witch hunt” and casting doubt on credible allegations of wrongdoing by his associates.

    “The president of the United States, the commander in chief, told the world that this was fake news,” Breen said, contrasting this with Mueller’s “professional” and “well-prepared” team.

    Breen suggested the president’s dismissive attitude towards the issue and the investigation encouraged a Trump backer like Papadopoulos to dismiss the probe’s significance and left him more willing to deceive investigators.”

    That is what PapaD’s attorney said in the courtroom about his own client and the President of the United States.

    George Papadopoulos dumped by his own lawyers as the former Trump aide embarks on a ‘self-defeating gambit’
    by Sonam Sheth
    13 Nov 2018

    “Breen responded to his then client’s tweet by telling The Washington Post, “Most of our clients listen and follow all of our advice, some follow most of our advice, some follow some of our advice, some follow none of our advice.””

    Of course they go to Fake News WaPo for a response.

    PapaD should file a lawsuit against them too. I suspect they were never interested in getting him off. All they did was railroad him, just like Flynn’s original and highly overpaid attorneys.

      Yes, two laine,

      He (papa) was a useful tool.
      Not smart enough to be in on it,
      But quite conceited enough to be duped.

      Lots of people who weren’t “vetted” enough,
      But what can one expect ? Perfection ?
      He (Trump) was an outsider.

      That’s my take.
      It will be ok.

      Ex-Trump campaign aide Papadopoulos says applied for pardon
      by Nathan Layne
      25 Mar 2019

      “His disclosure of the pardon pitch came on the same day that he released a book in which he disavowed his guilty plea, claiming he did not lie to the FBI and was unfairly pressured by Mueller’s prosecutors into cutting a deal.

      Papadopoulos says Mueller’s team threatened that if he did not agree to the plea deal, he would be charged with the more serious crime of not registering under the Foreign Agents Registration Act for his Israel-related work.

      Papadopoulos said he believed there were grounds to withdraw his guilty plea. Among other factors, he cited advice from his previous legal team in early 2017 that it was acceptable to deactivate his Facebook account, a move that led to an obstruction charge.”

      we are past that….certain persons may be forbidden..because THEY are investigating directly.

      but Grennell (by position of authority)..and the “free” press (not MSM, make no mistake calling that apparatus “press”..it a lie factory industry)..the “free” press can and will make this information publicly avail.

      now the real question, one that I believe you are really seeking to ask..

      with the release of this damning material, will main justice actually do anything with it?

      THAT..isn’t a terribly difficult question to answer.

      of course not! remember what this case distills down to, when it becomes a main justice case..even a small stab at it:

      it implicates the broad secret police spy state that has expanded and continues to expand allowing it to unconditionally hoover up and USE any and all communications from american citizens, with no actual reason of suspicions to do so.

      recently, CONGRESS has passed amendment (last week) that allow the IC to collect ALL BROWSER DATA FROM AMERICAN CITIZENS.

      the timing of this was no coincidence.

      what ALL of these corruptors up to and including WH STAFF and the complicit CONGRESS want is for these programs to continue.

      have to ask yourself:

      why is TRUMP not talking about killing the law to spy on american citizens?

      it’s about power…even if it means some really corrupt people never go to prison.

      it’s about the power of the state to spy on its own people, when and how it chooses..which is increasingly becoming more and more obvious to many..

      this case and those that might travel with it, threaten to expose those legal powers for what they really are.

      a freaking ATM machine that prints money for anyone who happens to be in a power of authority to wield it.

      THIS is why trump isn’t talking about it.

      the truth is that this IS THE TREE OF KNOWLEDGE. Eating from it, corrupts….

    Trey Gowdy Podcast: Devin Nunes and the Origins of the Russia Probe

    https://radio.foxnews.com/podcast/trey-gowdy/

    Start at 37:01. In the segment Gowdy and Nunes explain that they were constantly being lured by the DOJ and the Democrats to commit acts that could be interpreted as Obstruction of Justice. It was so bad, that both Gowdy and Nunes refused to look at classified documents. And when it came time to view classified material Nunes would try to send Gowdy and the reverse, because of that threat.

    So, I don’t know the classification level of the Flynn-Kislyak calls, but I know Gowdy had a lot of fear and maybe still does.

    What could the FBI, hope to accomplish by providing a fictitious, fabricated report on Flynn to the former president? One that they support.

    Sundance writes:
    “The capture of the December 29th phone call, which generated the raw “CR cuts“, was an FBI summary, modified for a specific interpretation. Much like the missing 302 there is now a very strong probability the FBI ‘CR cuts’ do not represent the actual call content.”
