Deep State Plotters – Devin Nunes Targets Rod Rosenstein’s Corrupt Activity to Initiate Robert Mueller…

When contemplating the malign activity of Rod Rosenstein; and how angered President Trump is with former AG Jeff Sessions; it is worth remembering that Sessions requested Rod Rosenstein as his deputy, and then immediately thereafter Sessions recused himself, effectively positioning Rosenstein to run the operation against President Trump.

That’s the background context for a great interview by Gregg Jarrett where Jarrett walks through the timeline of events with former HPSCI Chairman Devin Nunes. At the 5:30 point of the interview, Nunes identifies Rosenstein as part of the coup attempt and blasts him for how Rosenstein structured the fraudulent scope memos.

Nunes says his investigation is now looking at the part of the effort where Robert Mueller’s investigation was used as part of the initiating effort to remove President Trump. With the focus on the Mueller team, Nunes is now making additional criminal referrals based on his findings. WATCH:

.

The Obama-era surveillance network is at the center of all of this.

It’s worth remembering Sharyl Attkisson has identified Rosenstein as a defendant in her lawsuit about illegal surveillance operations carried out while she was a CBS reporter.

According to the lawsuit (full pdf) Rod Rosenstein, as the U.S. Attorney for Maryland, was in charge of the Obama 2011 and 2012 operation to monitor journalists specific to Ms. Attkisson’s reporting on Fast-n-Furious and Benghazi.

Former DOJ Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein is named in the Attkisson lawsuit as the person who was in charge of the operation; and the former head of the FBI DC field office, Shawn Henry is also outlined.

Mr. Henry is the head of Crowdstrike, a contractor for the government and a politically connected data security and forensic company.  Those who have followed the aspects related to the FBI use of the NSA database to illegally monitor U.S. persons; and those who followed the DNC cover story of Russia “hacking”; will be familiar with Crowdstrike.

What I find additionally interesting is the overall timeline in the bigger picture.

In the April 2017 release from FISC Judge Rosemary Collyer outlining the abuses of the FISA-702 process by FBI “contractors”, where the NSA database was being use for unlawful surveillance of U.S. persons, Collyer specifically noted the findings of her review of the period from November ’15 to May ’16 (85% non compliant rate) was likely to have been happening since 2012. [Go Deep]

The “IRS Scandal” were the DOJ was creating a list of U.S. persons for political targeting, and requested CD ROM’s of tax filings, was the lead-up to the 2012 exploitation of the NSA database. [The Secret Research Project] So there’s a larger picture of government surveillance under the Obama administration that becomes more clear.

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.

This is the same time-frame when DNI James Clapper falsely denied to congress about the U.S. government -through the NSA- collecting metadata on all U.S. electronic communication.  This is the same time-frame where CIA Director John Brennan was monitoring the computer networks of congressional intelligence oversight staff.

Within the Attkisson lawsuit the DOJ inspector general is identified as adverse to the interests of the case.  Meaning DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz was engaged in behavior to help the institution cover-up what independent computer forensic technicians were able to discover.   Employees from the IG’s office also told Ms. Attkisson they had received instructions from the DC offices adverse to the interest of truthful discovery.

In addition to the institutional cover-up effort; it would be worth noting that current DOJ and FBI officials, who have been identified as holding corrupt motives, are still being positioned at key offices.  An example is FBI Supervisory Special Agent David Archey (Mueller Team) being promoted to head up the Virginia FBI field office.

Obviously the DC institutional swamp is very deep and very corrupt.  Current and former politicians and federal officials who have engaged in corrupt behavior, or who have facilitated corrupt -potentially unlawful- surveillance activity, are still working within the system to avoid exposure.

Another recent example is former Christine Blasey-Ford hoax facilitator and Andrew McCabe attorney, Michael Bromwich, being hired by corrupt Chicago prosecutor Kim Foxx in an effort to protect herself from the outcome of the Jussie Smollett hoax in Chicago.  Why does a Cook County, Illinois, State Attorney need to hire a DC-based lawyer?

It was obvious early on the Jussie Smollett hoax was connected to several members of the Obama team and network.  Michael Bromwich is a former DOJ inspector general with ongoing direct contacts with corrupt DOJ and FBI officials inside the institutions.  Chicago State Attorney Foxx hiring Bromwich is yet another example of DC managing the cover.

Whether it’s the identified weaponization of NSA databases; or whether it’s corrupt FBI officials covering for each-other and the DOJ ‘declining to prosecute’; or whether it’s current AG Bill Barr appearing to cover for the transparently corrupt former DAG Rod Rosenstein; or whether it’s the need for the DOJ to hide the scope memos until DNI Ric Grenell showed up; one thing remains brutally obvious…

…This entire surveillance network hits on the epicenter of DC’s corrupt interests.

Through a FOIA request Judicial Watch received Rod Rosenstein’s email communication around the appointment of Special Counsel Robert Mueller [See Here]. The content further confirms when Rosenstein took Mueller to the White House on May 16th, 2017, the purpose was for Mueller to preview his target, President Trump.

Rosenstein took Mueller to visit Jeff Sessions on May 13th, the specifics of that email likely concern keeping prior private conversations out of the discussion with Sessions.

(Source pdf)

If we insert the Rosenstein email conversation into our timeline the picture is clear.

Perhaps the most important aspect is how DAG Rosenstein took Robert Mueller to the White House on May 16th, to interview President Trump.  The decision to appoint Mueller as special counsel was pre-determined prior to the White House visit:

♦James Comey was fired at approximately 5:00pm EST on Tuesday May 9th, 2017. The next morning, less than 15 hours after Comey was fired, Rosenstein contacted Robert Mueller about the special counsel appointment.

During the congressional testimony of Robert Mueller, Representative Andy Biggs noted evidence of a phone call between Mueller and Rod Rosenstein on Wednesday May 10th, 2017, at 7:45am.  Listen carefully at the 2:26 point of the video.

.

From the Judicial Watch FOIA release we can see that following the 7:45am phone call Rod Rosenstein received contact info from Mueller’s asst (8:09am), and Rosenstein emailed his assistant at 8:13am with instructions to contact Mueller’s asst and set up a meeting for Friday May 12th:

Marcia Murphy from the Office of the DAG, then followed through and set up a meeting for 8:00am, Friday May 12th at Main Justice, between Rosenstein and Mueller:

Following that May 12th 8:00am meeting with Mueller, Rod Rosenstein then met with Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe Andrew McCabe.  –  According to McCabe:

… “[Rosenstein] asked for my thoughts about whether we needed a special counsel to oversee the Russia case. I said I thought it would help the investigation’s credibility. Later that day, I went to see Rosenstein again. This is the gist of what I said: I feel strongly that the investigation would be best served by having a special counsel.” (link)

Later that night (May 12th), at 9:15pm Rosenstein then emails Robert Mueller: “I assume you realize the boss and his staff do not know about our discussions.”

That email is directly related to a meeting scheduled on Saturday May 13th between Rosenstein, Mueller and Jeff Sessions; which is confirmed in the Andy Biggs questioning.

♦Sunday May 14th –  Comey transmitted copies of Memos 2, 4, and 6, and a partially redacted copy of Memo 7 to Patrick Fitzgerald, who was one of Comey’s personal attorneys.  Fitzgerald received the email and PDF attachment from Comey at 2:27 p.m. on May 14, 2017, per the IG report.

♦Monday May 15th, McCabe states he and Rosenstein conferred again about the Special Counsel approach. McCabe: “I brought the matter up with him again after the weekend.”

On this same day was when James Rybicki called SSA Whistleblower to notify him of Comey’s memos. The memos were “stored” in a “reception area“, and in locked drawers in James Rybicki’s office.

♦Tuesday May 16th – Per the IG report: “On the morning of May 16, Comey took digital photographs of both pages of Memo 4 with his personal cell phone. Comey then sent both photographs, via text message, to Richman.

Back in Main Justice at 12:30pm Rod Rosenstein, Andrew McCabe, Jim Crowell and Tashina Guahar all appear to be part of this meeting.  I should note that alternate documentary evidence, gathered over the past two years, supports the content of this McCabe memo.  Including texts between Lisa Page and Peter Strzok:

[Sidebar: pay attention to the *current* redactions; they appear to be placed by existing DOJ officials in an effort to protect Rod Rosenstein for his duplicity in: (A) running the Mueller sting operation at the white house on the same day; (B) the appointment of Robert Mueller as special counsel, which was pre-determined before the Oval Office meeting.]

While McCabe was writing this afternoon memo, still May 16th, Rod Rosenstein took Robert Mueller to the White House for a meeting in the oval office with President Trump and VP Mike Pence.

After six days of phone calls, emails and in person meetings, this visit to the White House was clearly Rod Rosenstein introducing Robert Mueller to the target of the investigation.  Rosenstein already knew he was going to appoint Mueller; and Mueller, along with the small group in the FBI, already knew Mueller was going to be appointed.

Later that night (May 16th), following the Mueller visit, there was a debriefing session back at Main Justice.  This evening meeting appears to be Lisa Page, Rod Rosenstein and Andrew McCabe; along with Tashina Gauhar again taking notes.

♦ Wednesday May 17th, 2017:  Rod Rosenstein and Andrew McCabe go to brief the congressional “Gang-of-Eight”: Paul Ryan, Nancy Pelosi, Devin Nunes, Adam Schiff, Mitch McConnell, Chuck Schumer, Richard Burr and Mark Warner.

… […] “On the afternoon of May 17, Rosenstein and I sat at the end of a long conference table in a secure room in the basement of the Capitol. We were there to brief the so-called Gang of Eight—the majority and minority leaders of the House and Senate and the chairs and ranking members of the House and Senate Intelligence Committees. Rosenstein had, I knew, made a decision to appoint a special counsel in the Russia case.”

[…] “After reminding the committee of how the investigation began, I told them of additional steps we had taken. Then Rod took over and announced that he had appointed a special counsel to pursue the Russia investigation, and that the special counsel was Robert Mueller.” (link)

Immediately following this May 17, 2017, Go8 briefing, Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein notified the public of the special counsel appointment.

According to President Trump’s Attorney John Dowd, the White House was stunned by the decision. [Link] Coincidentally, AG Jeff Sessions was in the oval office for unrelated business when White House counsel Don McGahn came in and informed the group.

Jeff Sessions immediately offered his resignation, and Sessions’ chief-of-staff Jody Hunt went back to the Main Justice office to ask Rosenstein what the hell was going on.

          The answer to your question is
          NO ONE KNOWS
          who the specific person was that made that recommendation.

          And it’s NOT a simple matter of just asking POTUS
          “Who told you to sign that EO?”
          Because THAT GUY (probably WH counsel) had it recommended to him
          and had no reason to question it because
          Sessions was recused,
          RR wasn’t confirmed
          so effectively THERE WAS NO fully functioning AG

          and Boente was a QUOTE “veteran US Atty”

          However the answer obviously lies with either
          Someone high up at the DOJ who
          1)knew about the “coup”
          2)knew they needed the CP FISA renewed
          3)knew Boente was in on the “coup” too and would sign it…NO QUESTIONS ASKED
          OR
          Someone IN the WH, IN on the COUP and had pull with the WH counsel

        If Sessions offered to resign, PJDT could not be charged, even on a theoretical basis, with abuse of power or obstruction of justice. Then PJDT could get in someone of his liking, and take away from Rosenstein the oversight of the SC investigation. Things might have worked out very differently since the Mueller investigation ought to have been closed don after 1 year, and well before the 2018 Mid Term elections.

        I see Sessions as simply too slow in game speed but not as an evil coup plotter. Sessions wanted to be AG as his swan song for a reasonably good effort as the Senator from Alabama.

      Sessions allowed himself to be bullied into recusing from all the Russia nonsense because he shook hands a couple of times with the Russian Ambassador. How stupid is that? The coup plotters were already trying to figure out how to get a SC appointed even then.

          Everyone has lauded Sessions for being an early supporter of Trump. He attended an early rally for Trump in Mobile, AL sometime early Fall of 2015, but he did not endorse him. It was the polite thing for republican officials to show up for a rally held in your state for the party’s nomination. We are polite in the South, and you have to admit Sessions is polite.

          Unless my memory has failed me, I don’t recall Sessions endorsing Trump until late April or May of 2016. This was after Trump had swept the primaries and only needed the CA primary to clinch the nomination. (maybe a scouting mission)

          I admit I was pleased when Sessions was appointed AG, but the minute he recused himself I knew we were in trouble. This was before we knew anything about Rosenstein and Mueller. I just knew.

          I posted here and twitter that Sessions was inept or complicit. I leaned toward complicit and now the more we learn the more I believe it.

I think they would have had a tougher time with the obstruction charge. Not that any of this mattered, because they would have still impeached him, even if he hadn’t fired Comey.

          That was the case in the 1st fifteen or so months, while the waters remained shockingly muddied, and while regular readers here were receiving a Master’s level education in the ties that bind among the UNI-Party, the Deep State, and the Globalist cabal.

          Many of us were hoping, and praying, that Sessions, Rosie, and some other “associates” truly were white hats, and awaiting with evidence in hand, the right moment to expose the plot and plotters arrayed, arranged, and aligned to take out President Trump.

          Speaking only for myself, I was brutally naive to be hopeful, but am relieved to now see them squirming, sweating, and one hopes, finally punching their tickets into the slammer.

          I never imagined living to see my government deteriorate to its present state. But then I never imagined that Providence would provide us with such a POTUS, ready to fight no matter the odds, against the cabal.

          Sessions could have been Something in 45’s Administration. Instead of working to become an accomplished and effective Something, he’s nothing to anyone anymore, and pitiful for him, with no one to blame but himself.

I never gave a dime to a political campaign or attended a campaign rally until Donald Trump arrived on the scene. My Democrat golf buddies know better than to talks smack about my president, as does my idiotic union Democrat father.

      Why Trump Doesn’t Just Fire Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Yes, The Senate Has Something To Do With It/

      Erin Kelly
      USA TODAY
      June 6, 2018

      WASHINGTON — As President Trump renews his public attacks on Attorney General Jeff Sessions, it raises the question: why does’t Trump just fire him?

      At least part of the answer can be found in the U.S. Senate, where key Republican senators have warned the White House that the president could be waiting indefinitely for a new attorney general if he tosses out their former colleague.

      Sessions served 20 years as a senator from Alabama and was a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee — the same panel that would lead the confirmation process for any new attorney general. The committee’s chairman, Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, said recently that, given the busy schedules of the panel and the Senate, “it would be difficult to confirm an AG nominee this year.” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., also has expressed support for Sessions.

We now know that was what the Mueller team was hoping for as they had nothing else against President Trump.

          And how in the world, with no one on God’s green earth giving Trump a chance to win the GOP nomination, MUCH LESS the Presidency itself, would Sessions have figured he’d become an AG to a POTUS who’d be removed from office leaving him, Sessions, hanging w/out a job?

          I’m lost when folks argue that.

            Trump Derangement Syndrome has two meanings here.
            I understand Trump’s attitude towards Sessions, but I understand Sessions too.
            Session is no RINO. He is a conservative who respects the rule of law and traditions.
            Unfortunately Sessions is not the person to deal with the lying, deceitful Rosensteins and Muellers of the world. Sessions offered his resignation, but by then it was too late. He should have offered it upon his recusal. He seems to have trusted Rosenstein and now is paying the price for it.

              So, let me get this straight. I’m not being a smart ass. I am just trying to make sense of what you say. You’re not the first to have said it and every time I hear it, I cannot make sense of it.

              You think Sessions was part of setting up Trump for failure (and for impeachment, for removal from office) even though Sessions offered public support for Trump long, long before Trump became the front runner among GOP primary candidates, long before any of the cabal could possibly have thought Donald J. Trump was going to be the GOP nominee? And, you aren’t swayed by the fact that illegal immigration has been a pet issue for Sessions for quite a while AND Donald J Trump was just blunt enough to say to Americans, “Enough!” whereas the GOP establishment candidates were with the Chamber of Commerce, Mitch, the Dems, the Establishment on this issue?

              As Trump gained steam and began winning primaries, you think the cabal used a willing Sessions to be a rat against Trump? To stop him from winning the election? What did Sessions Do to stop Trump from winning cuz whatever he did sure didn’t work.

              Oh, so you don’t think they used Sessions to undermine Trump’s election?

              Insted, you think they used him to set up Trump once he was elected by aiding getting him for an obstruction of justice charge? A recused Sessions could pretend he had his hands tied and had to leave it all to the poisonous RR.

              All right, but IF that had worked and IF POTUS was removed from office, the new POTUS (Pence) would have been able to ask for his own AG. There was no assurance he would keep Sessions or even let Sessions work on his pet issues at DOJ (marijuana laws, illegal immigration.)

            Why would Mike Pence have gotten rid of Sessions? He wouldn’t have. Sessions would have had the AG job for the full four years, and another four if Pence would have gotten reelected. Being from Alabama, Sessions had nothing to lose by endorsing Trump. And Sessions was obviously aware of the huge upside (becoming AG) if Trump did get elected.

            For a long time, I believed the hype about the Silent Assassin. I remember Jeff gave a very young reporter an interview on election night from the floor of the Trump victory party. I wasn’t really familiar with Sessions then but I impressed by how he stuck up for the VSG. But as time went on, I had to face facts. Either Sessions was inept or Sessions was in on the coup. I’m leaning towards in on it. I’m going to go back and find that interview and see what clues I can find in Sessions’ defense of Trump.

It drove the country apart, severing our trust with each other by telling the nation our President was a Russian Agent. It kneecapped the MAGA Agenda all of us voted for, even if President Trump was still able to accomplish much. It delayed the Big Ugly, and this will not be denied, one way or another.

    He is also INDIRECTLY responsible for the loss of the House, and therefore the Impeachment Coup. And he accepts no responsibility for any of it. He may be “better” on some issues–but the issue is Jeff Sessions. If he were allowed anywhere near the Senate, he would find a way to do it again.

    I really like #2 if we could pick because Grenell is perfect as ODNI Director and exposing the truth and cutting through red tape is his passion and Ratcliffe has a better legal background to run the FBI IMO.

    The only missing pieces are….

    1) Sidney as WH Justice Czar to “assist” Barr and Durham now, to ensure all Prior NSA Spying Abuse is being looked at.

    2) Fire Haspel and appoint Gen Flynn as Acting CIA Director once his case is tossed.

    So our PT batting order is

    Meadows – COS
    Powell – WH Justice Czar today – AG post Nov
    Grenell – Acting ODNI Director for another 210 days, then nominate as permanent ODNI post Nov.
    Ratcliffe- Acting FBI Director for 210 days and then nominate as permanent FBI Director post Nov.
    Flynn – Acting CIA Director now the. Nominate as permanent CIA Director post Nov

    Do you think with this lineup that the truth and a ton of evidence won’t come flying out?

    It was basically Jeff Sessions alone that stopped Obama’s reckless amnesty surges. And a Sessions staffer, Steven Miller did fine work behind the scenes stopping amnesties. Miller is flawed but he is trying to get control of the borders past little Jared Kushner and his Chamber of Commerce quislings.
    If those massive amnesties had gone through, Hillary would have gotten millions more illegal votes to win in 2016. Our Republic would already be totally dead.

    If we allow Barr and Durham to stay focused only on the 2016-2019 period IMO you will NEVER get the Top Dogs.

    Barr, Durham or maybe it’s Grenell who MUST look back to 2009-2015 at all the earlier spying done on Americans.

    Why?

    Because there was only 1-2 layers back then. MUCH easier to connect to the TOP DOGS IMO.

      That reminds me of the Impeachment proceedings against WJC. They were ONLY allowed the Monica Lewinsky scandal, none of the other more nefarious schemes that Ann Coulter (*) so eloquently outlined in her book on the subject.

      So in the end, even though WJC was guilty of perjury, it was “just about sex”, so removing him from office would be too severe.

      He should have been removed for all the other corruption.

      (*) Please spare us comments on A.C.
      This is not about her.

    Two things seem clear:
    1. Jeff Sessions was in on the coup and worked to set it up and further it.The man is not that stupid to be such a dupe.
    2. AG Barr is intentionally slow walking any investigation. There will either be no indictments or they will come too late meaning no trials until after the election. If Trump loses, Barr knows the incoming Dem AG drops all charges. I wonder if Barr has knowledge about how the vote tabulation will turn out.

    At 2:30 into recording Nunez says “they were running informants into the Trump campaign” immediately after that he says they got a Fisa on Carter Page. Was Carter page a plant into the campaign with the right history with Russia ?

    Interesting. Rosenstein initiated the May 12 meeting with Mueller on May 10, a day before the famous Lester Holt interview on May 11. Contrary to Ann Coulter, it appears the appointment of Mueller as SC was not triggered by the Holt interview. IMO the firing of Comey was the trigger.
