The Mysterious Journey of an FBI Leak Investigation…

In January of 2017 California Senator Dianne Feinstein abdicated her position as Vice-Chair of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (SSCI).  Upon the initiation of a new congress, and two weeks before the inauguration of President Donald Trump, Virginia Senator Mark Warner took the SSCI Vice-Chair seat…. and that’s how things get started.

Amid a concerted effort to resist the incoming administration the Russia Collusion Conspiracy was launched.  Politicians, the U.S. intelligence apparatus and DC beltway media united in common purpose to push a Trump-Russia narrative.

Within the early days of that effort, the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence initiated an investigation into Russian interference with the election.  Chairman Richard Burr and Vice-Chair Warner were toasted throughout DC as an example of bipartisan oversight against what House minority leader Nancy Pelosi called a “fraudulent president.”

Sometime in late February/early March 2017 Senator Warner requested a copy of the top secret FISA application used against Carter Page, falsely accusing him of being “an agent of a foreign power.”  Simultaneous to this the FBI was trying to track down the details of dozens of classified intelligence leaks to the media from within the DC system.   FBI Special Agent, Washington DC Field Office, Brian Dugan appears to have been tasked with tracking and identifying intelligence leakers.  Dugan saw an opportunity.

On March 17, 2017, in order to fulfill the request of SSCI Vice-Chairman Mark Warner, Agent Dugan goes to the FISA Court and picks up a copy of the FISA application.  At the time there were only two components: The original application (Oct ’16), and the first renewal (Jan ’17).   The next renewal did not come until April and then again in June.

NOTE:  The FBI did not go to the DOJ-NSD to pick up a copy.  Why?

You’ll see.

The FBI went to FISA Court for their copy.  The FISA Clerk stamped the copy with the Date March 17, 2017, and Dugan returned to the Washington Field Office of the FBI.

We know this was the process, because Dugan later writes the copy was “an FBI equity”, meaning the origination of the leaked document came from the FBI.  Not the DOJ-NSD or the FISA Court directly (the two other possible sources).

When SSA Dugan returned to the FBI office he changed the dates (by one day) on the application and first renewal, presumably as a leak tracer, and prepared them for release.

Throughout this process DOJ Main Justice appears purposefully unaware. The Washington Field Office FBI were limiting information in order to track classified leaks.

This exclusion process narrows the possibility.

Later in the afternoon of March 17, 2017, the WFO delivered the FISA application to SSCI Security Director James Wolfe.  [Wolfe indictment page 6 – Line 17, 18]

Shortly after 4:00pm Mark Warner arrives at the SSCI Sensitive Comparmented Information Facility, or SCIF.  We discover this exact timeframe from text messages belonging to Chris Steele’s U.S. Attorney, Adam Waldman.  More on that in a minute.

Before, during or after Senator Warner’s review of the FISA application, SSCI Security Director James Wolfe leaked the FISA application content to his allied media cohort, a journalist at Buzzfeed, Ali Watkins.

Additional material later released puts the most likely sequence for Wolfe’s leak coming after Warner’s review.

The leak was accomplished by a series of picture texts.  The original FISA application is 83 pages in total with one intentionally blank page [Ali Watkins is “Reporter #2”]:

James Wolfe took a photograph of each of the pages and then sent those 82 image texts to Ms. Ali Watkins.  At this moment, March 17, 2017, Ms. Watkins now holds a copy of the unredacted original FISA application.  However, the copy also carries the leak tracer.

After reporting of Carter Page (Male 1) appears in Buzzfeed written by Watkins; and after both the New York Times and Washington Post publish articles about the FISA application using the leak trace information; the FBI now knows the leak came from the SSCI.

Over the next several months physical surveillance on Wolfe is conducted.   The FBI must have been able to gather very credible evidence that Wolfe was the leaker to Watkins because eventually a DC judge granted the FBI a search warrant for Ms. Watkins records.

It is very difficult to get a warrant on a journalist.  There are tight legal protocols for doing so. The evidence gathered must have been very overwhelming.  The court granted the search warrant.   Ms. Watkins is unaware.  Additionally, and importantly, it appears Main Justice now occupied by the Mueller investigation, is also unaware. [Doc Link]

The search warrant runs from Feb 1, 2017 to July 31, 2017.  This specific leak of the FISA application is March 17, 2017.

Somewhere in/around this mid-late summer timeframe the Washington Field Office FBI also retrieved text messages from Lawyer and registered Lobbyist Adam Waldman.

We know the text messages are from Waldman’s side of the conversation from the attached screenshots later released.  We also know the date of the capture was similar to Ms. Ali Watkins.  Feb 15, 2017 to May 15, 2017.  Again the Wolfe leak was March 17th.

The telephone communication of both SSCI Vice-Chairman Senator Warner and Journalist Ali Watkins were captured.   This indicates both were suspects in the investigation.  Thus, it seems likely the Wolfe pictures were sent *after* Mark Warner reviewed them, not before.

It would be very tenuous for the FBI to capture texts messages from the sitting Vice-Chair of the SSCI.  This is not something the Washington Field Office of the FBI would do lightly.  That aspect also explains why the texts were captured from the Waldman side of the conversation.  Much easier to get the texts of a lobbyist than a sitting SSCI member.

In October 2017 the FBI first approached Wolfe with an fyi on the leak investigation to see how he would respond.  [Indictment Here] By mid December 2017 Wolfe is confronted.  He lied repeatedly, until shown the evidence, then he admitted, and admitted he lied.

James Wolfe was quietly removed from the SSCI immediately after, and was in a state of suspension until his indictment was unsealed June 8th.  However, it’s the story between December 2017 and June 8th where things are very interesting.

As you can see from above, Mueller and the 17 resistance members that took over Main Justice had no idea any of this FBI investigation was happening, UNTIL the FBI investigative files were transferred to seat a grand jury to hear the evidence.

It appears FBI SSA Brian Dugan finished his investigation immediately after Wolfe left the SSCI; or soon thereafter.  Somewhere around the end of January, to first week of February, all reports and FBI evidence would be submitted.

That transfer included: the March 17, 2017, FISA application with leak tracers; the Ali Watkins phone records; the Adam Waldman/Mark Warner phone records; and all the subsequent interview notes with James Wolfe and other parties (FD-302’s etc).

Keep in mind, every investigation that touched on Trump-Russia became proprietary to the Robert Mueller Special Counsel.  This FBI investigation centered around the FISA application which was at the center of the special counsel probe.

This means the Mueller special counsel took ownership and control over the FBI evidence in the totality of the Wolfe investigation.

The evidence did not go to a grand jury.

On February 9, 2018, the evidentiary text messages capturing Mark Warner’s involvement with James Wolfe were sent back to the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence:

In essence, Senator Mark Warner was given a head’s up.  Or put another way, time to clean up any sticky issues and narrate a justification.

Four days later, February 13, 2018, the DOJ notified Ali Watkins, and the New York Times, that all of her communications were intercepted as part of the investigation.  By now Wolfe was two months removed from his position; undoubtedly Watkins knew.

In essence to the New York Times, who had been using the FISA application as part of its false reporting, were also given a legal head’s up.

The Wolfe Grand Jury was not seated until May 3, 2018; and the indictment unsealed on June 8, 2018.  [link]  All the work that SSA Brian Dugan put into catching an intelligence leaker was ignored.  Wolfe was only indicted for lying to the FBI because it appears the grand jury never saw the evidence of his leaking the FISA application.

Why not?  Because an admission of the FISA leak would have been toxic to the special counsel.  It would have also been toxic to the SSCI and specifically Senator Mark Warner.

It appears the evidence file went into Main Justice with clear and overwhelming evidence of Wolfe leaking the FISA, only to have it return to DC USAO Jessie Liu, for presentation to the grand jury, with the evidence of that core element removed.  Ergo, Wolfe was only charged with lying to the FBI.

However, it appears Dugan didn’t relent.  In a sentencing attachment on December 14th 2018, well after the plea agreement was concluded, Dugan swears under oath that James Wolfe leaked the FISA application:

“In this case, because the known disclosure of classified information – the FISA application– involved an FBI equity, the FBI devoted substantial agent and intelligence analyst resources”…

The evidence is irrefutable that Wolfe leaked the FISA application on March 17, 2017.

Once that point is established…. then the reason why the special counsel released the FISA application under the premise of a FOIA application, July 21, 2018, starts to have much more significance.

However, before getting into even more.  Let’s just stop there.

The FISA application was leaked March 17, 2017, by James Wolfe.

Why wasn’t he prosecuted for it?

.

Not a single media outlet has ever admitted James Wolfe leaked the FISA application.

Why not?

    January 21, 2017 (bold mine}

    Thousand of people turned out in Albany Saturday for the “Inaugurate Resistance” march to protest the presidential administration of Donald Trump and rally for issues ranging from civil rights to the environment to health care. The local event,organized by Citizen Action, was one of many similar marches around the country coinciding with the Women’s March in DC.

The origins of the group lies in various state-level organizations founded by veterans of Students for a Democratic Society and the Indochina Peace Campaign.

    The Women’s March on Washington had sister marches in international locales ranging from Antarctica to Zimbabwe. We found at least 261 marches abroad, with attendance totaling between 266,532 and 357,071 people (our best guess is 307,275 people).

    Observers should take these marches seriously, too. Transnational solidarity often gives a movement more leverage than a purely domestic movement might otherwise have.

      Since they were behind Charlottesville, and are now
      behind the “Defund the Police”, what’s the chance that
      Arabella Advisors helped out on all the pink pussy hat
      protests, also?

      One of their 13 orgs was created, out of the blue, in
      2015. Would be curious as to WHEN in 2015. Maybe,
      say, after someone came down an escalator ?

      Also, the sheer numbers of all their “spontaneous”
      protests is just too seamless. Charlottesville was a photo
      op. A time for visible filming to create racism where none
      existed, and tie Trump to it.

      The pink pussy protests? Females who let their emotions
      and hormones make all their decisions were swayed in their
      judgement by watching the sheer numbers of their brethren
      fighting the “good fight”.

      Assisted by social media posting of Jussie Smollett type
      type fake hate crimes. Muslim woman attacked on the
      subway (later proven to be false because it was a cover
      story of said youngster going out catting), and many others.

      All of the sudden reports of Trump specific horror type
      stories that were similar to the Muslim woman incident.
      In retrospect, again, all too seamless. All too theatrical.
      All too Charlottesville.

            Until Freedom shared live video on its Facebook page showing protesters marching and later seated in rows with arms linked on the lawn of the single-story home.

            A co-founder of the group, Linda Sarsour, who was among those arrested, told the Courier-Journal, “We are here to hold Daniel Cameron accountable and make sure that he does his job, because he is not doing his job.”

            -snip-

            [AG]Cameron issued a statement Tuesday night, saying “a thorough and fair investigation” is being conducted.

            “The stated goal of today’s protest at my home was to ‘escalate.’ That is not acceptable and only serves to further division and tension within our community,” he said in the statement shared by several media outlets. “Justice is not achieved by trespassing on private property, and it’s not achieved through escalation. It’s achieved by examining the facts in an impartial and unbiased manner. That is exactly what we are doing and will continue to do in this investigation.”

            WLKY reported that police warned the protesters to leave, and those who refused were charged with intimidating a participant in a legal process, second-degree disorderly conduct and criminal trespassing.

    Wolfe and his lawyer never had to play hardball, threatening to bring down the SCSI. The DOJ was run by the Mueller/Weissman resistance, they were most likely fully aware of what Sen. Warner and SCSI were doing. The only problem arose with an honest FBI agent named Dugan uncovered the leak and then turned it over to the resistance to prosecute themselves. DOJ (Mueller/Weissman) immediately began leaking and releasing to alert everyone exposed about the investigation, to allow them to cover their tracks and get their stories straight. And then they cut Wolfe the very best deal they could, given that they had been boxed in by the Dugan investigation.

    You can sense Dugan’s frustration as he tell about the time, energy, and resources expended on the leak investigation only to have Mueller/Weissman spike it.

          They won’t be prosecuted because they have the perfect explanation: ‘It was part of our investigation, therefore, everything needs to stand still at DOJ.’ This is cover for Rosenstein, Liu, Mueller team, everybody. I think all we can do now is expose it.

      I read an article awhile back, about how the troublesome thing about trying to carry out a criminal conspiracy in a large organization about the FBI is there are always honest, conscientious people who in the performance of their duties mess up the dirty schemes. For example, the investigators who determined before Trump was inaugurated that there was no derogatory information, and hence no basis, for the Crossfire Hurricane counterintelligence investigation and moved to close it. Strzok intervened to keep it open, and then took it over personally to make sure no more honesty interfered with the plot.

      Agent Dugan is another such agent. He was just doing his job, and nearly blew up the entire conspiracy. It was only the fecklessness of Jeff Sessions and Rod Rosenstein that permitted Mueller/Weissman to take control and quash it.

          It is not that Sessions was/is corrupt, it was that he was weak and cowardly on the most important thing he needed to do, which was to combat and clean up DOJ/FBI corruption from within. I think he had good intentions always (just as he was the first US Senator to support DJT and to really take a strong line against illegal immigration)…. but when the Deep State scum in the DOJ played him on recusal, etc., he allowed himself to be played.

        Oh, come on. How many times does reality have to slap you in the face before you give up this stupid fantasy?

        Sessions recused from CROSSFIRE HURRICANE. The one with the false FISA applications, the fabricated evidence, the illegal unmaskings, the classified leaking. The one that Devin Nunes took one look at and knew how wrong it was. Jeff never even bothered to learn the name of the investigation. A total failure of leadership and oversight.

        Jeff Sessions is a very nice man who doesn’t like confrontation and just wants to get along. He isn’t a leader, or a manager: His skillset tops out at “individual contributor.” He wanted to be Attorney General but had no idea what that meant, and no idea what to do once appointed.

        Shaken by his brutal confirmation hearing where he was accused of being a liar and his integrity was questioned, he walked into DOJ eager to prove he was honest and not a Russian agent. Without even bothering to learn the lay of the land, he simply accepted at face value the recommendation of the resistance cabal that he must not take charge of DOJ; and recused from his post before he even started.

        Anyone with a lick of sense knows that when you’re the new boss, and as soon as you walk inyou’re greeted by a group of smiling employees who tell you they’ve got everything under control, no need to look into this or that, and definitely don’t look behind that door, and NEVER go into this part of the building: You should be immediately suspicious, and DEFINITELY go look very closely at everything they told you not to look at. But not Jeffy! Nope – he did exactly as he was told. And then he played cops and robbers, chasing MS-13 while the country burned.

        And the hell of it is, EVEN AFTER HE KNEW WHAT HAPPENED he STILL REFUSED TO TAKE ACTION. To this day he insists that recusing was the right thing to do, and he would do it again. That, my friend, is a special kind of stupid. That is Jeff Sessions.

      What difference does it make who ordered it? The leaks were widely known and President Trump himself said the leakers will be caught, which means by default, he ordered the investigation. The FBI agent did his job and his superiors knew about the work because they informed SSCI.

      The important point is the agent seems to have done a great job.

No no no, he was Trump Russian asset! Okay really? Page indicted? arrested? Prosecuted? By….By….By…Mueller? FBI? DOJ? Why not then? If you are labeled a spy against USA then you should be indicted and prosecuted! But………..nothing………..whereas Stone, Papadapulous, Manafort, Flynn are and were all prosecuted!

      So you cannot claim somebody working for your agency helping you take down Russian spies as a Russian Spy himself! FISA is so fake and they all know it.

      Now that since it was released, it has completely backfired! Rod Rosenstein knows this, Mueller knows this! Now please go after them for faking the FISA warrant knowing Carter Page was not even close to being a Russian spy! The media knows this since they reported on how undercover informant was used to nap Russian Spies in 2013, the same exact language as their 2013 indictment and news media coverage is now appearing this FISA against him, they are so dumb stoooopid not to realize how they been caught red handed trying to frame Trump and his campaign and administration!

      4. The FISA did not get reported in toto. Selected Trump damaging titbits were published.

One way to do that is start a drumbeat of accusations, that President Trump was linked to the Russians, and his campaign was being investigated by the FBI. Oh, that sounds bad…

      Of course, the FISA process is very hush-hush, and is never expected to see the light of day, unless it is purposely leaked. It makes the most sense to me that Sen. Warner, being up to his eyeballs in the cabal, told Wolfe to leak it to his “connections.”

        Nellie Ohr had seen some innocent Russia contacts. Manafort, Carter Page, and Papdop, as well as Trump traveling to Russia once. Trump had also joked about the Russians and Hillary’s emails. They were working on a campaign plan to paint him as a Putin stooge.

        The insurance policy was an extension of that and since they lost the election, they used it to resist his Presidency in the same way R’s wanted Obama to “fail”. They also saw an opportunity to influence the midterms to win the House back by putting Trump under investigation.

        The media going all in on their plan was the icing on the cake that allowed them to transform that into a full coup attempt to overturn the 2016 election.

      A functional, secured SCIF, is and has for decades been a highly productive TOOL-in-the-BOX for securing and examining the Classified Intelligence. That which is vital to every agency in America (CIA down thru DoD to the Bureau, to US Marshal’s) and must be available to function.
      The fault here lies, as noted above, with the Security Measures. Those who maintain the secured perimeter of the House SSCI/SCIF. Like everything else in DC, that component has been corrupted beyond it’s ability to function!

      NO ONE is allowed access to a SCIF with even a Pen or Pad. No one is allowed to leave with Dx or copies of Dx. So the culpable parties come down to Warner first and foremost, then the Watchmen at the SCIF, then Wolfe and his lover.

      FWIW, my bet is Mark Warner simply walked out with copies of the FISA App. Then gave them to Wolfe, to do the dirty work of photographing and texting. The SSCI LEAK was crucial to the Russia Hoax! The Dems inside the SSCI, because of their access and their “Control over the House SCIF”.

      My point has been that the term “conservative” has been left undefined for at least 30 years, probably 50, and the people you are commenting about have been trying to steal you mind and your thinking capacity by demonizing the “L” word aka “liberal.”

      American conservatives are about conserving and protecting a Republican Constitutional government, a product of “classical liberalism,” a hard-won product of Judeo-Christian background and beliefs, Enlightenment science and truths, and British rights developed historically – not French.

      These people I have hated for so many years, that you talk about in your comment, are the other side of evil along with the marxists in today’s War in America. Most of you used to listen to them and respect them especially when they called themselves “conservative.”

      Everyone needs to reread their American history, learn about the extreme courage that the Declaration of Independence and the War for Independence took – and the Constitution with its Bill or Rights that was born out of extreme and dangerous conditions. You might finally be able to redo your thinking about “liberal” and “conservative.” The foundation of freedom and liberty for all is classical liberalism – which must be conserved.

      There is not one liberal operating in the current Dem Party – it is owned lock, stock, and barrel by communists and has been for many years. Likewise these CofC Republicans calling themselves “conservative” are actually revolutionaries trying to destroy American government and society for their One World utopia where they can live in the lap of luxury with economic and sex slaves around to do their bidding. They sit in their expensive, walled-off communities with their private police forces and sneer at us.

    Everyone, the operative phrase here is “beyond a reasonable doubt.”

    As much as I desire the wheels of justice to CRUSH Obama, Brennan, Clapper, Comey, McCabe, Rosenstein, Strzok, Page and a host of others, William Barr and John Durham will not indict unless they believe they can get 12 people in Washington D.C. area to all believe “beyond a reasonable doubt” that a crime was committed.

    Barr is in a TERRIBLE position. We can easily deduce that the coup plotters violated several federal laws. He knows these guys plotted a coup and nearly pulled it off. But can he PROVE it beyond a reasonable doubt in court? The political environment is SO toxic that a conviction would have to be guaranteed before it went to trial.

    What would the reaction be if Comey, McCabe, Strzok and Page were indicted and sent to trial….. and a jury acquitted all of them? The media would turn around and trumpet that as proof that they were right and Trump did everything they alleged.

    Not being pessimistic, just realistic.

      Convicted = Trump/Barr banana republic
      I’ll add to your thought about the need for a strong case. Put before the typcail hack judge, and it doesn;t matter how strong or weak the charge is. The outcome is directed by the court, not by facts, not by law.
      Shorter version – there is no way to win using the law. The law is a tool used by the dishonest to punish the honest. Get facts into the public, and let public cold anger sort it out. The institutions are beyond redemption.

      I want indictments but with Nov 4 months away I’ll take indictments and the truth to come out before Nov election so the non informed or middle of the road folks can at least have an opportunity to understand what these people did to a sitting President.

      If a jury doesn’t convict which IMO there is a high probability, it still is critical that the truth come out and the honest media folks like Tucker, Carter, Solomon, Hannity, Rush, Bongino can at least tell the story of the truth.

      Without this millions of people will think people within the FIB and DOJ did nothing wrong.

      I agree fully with you on this. I think you “get” Barr.

      With the caveat that I could be wrong and am willing to discover that at any time, I think Barr is a very ethical guy. There’s a big difference between knowing that Warner instructed Wolfe to leak the FISA application, and being able to prove it in court. Barr has said exactly that in one or more recent interviews.

      The next question is this: If Barr/Durham know something but cannot prove it, would they publicly make that known in an official DOJ statement or report? Would a Durham report say that Warner likely instructed the leak but the DOJ cannot prove it? If I’m right that Barr is very ethical then I think the answer, unfortunately, is no.

      I find that to be ultra-frustrating, but it’s my read at this point.

          There is one MAJOR, MAJOR PROBLEM with this whole fiasco.

          CONGRESS SANCTIONED LYING TO COURTS AND GOVERNMENT IN 1996. On Oct. 11, 1996, Congress passed and Bill Clinton signed the False Statement Accountability Act, 18 USC § 1001. On the same day, Congress passed the Economic Espionage Act, authored by Professor James P. Chandler, (Remember that name), that has given rise to the current NSA and FISA Court abuses of Amercian privacy. 18 USC § 1001(b) was a Cartel devil dressed up as “accountability.”

          Subsection (a) is consistent with moral law, well-settled precedent and common sense— don’t lie; tell the truth .
          ’18 USC § 1001 Subsection (a):
          (a) Except as otherwise provided in this section, whoever, in any matter within the jurisdiction of the executive, legislative, or judicial branch of the Government of the United States, knowingly and willfully—
          (1) falsifies, conceals, or covers up by any trick, scheme, or device a material fact;
          (2) makes any materially false, fictitious, or fraudulent statement or representation; or
          (3) makes or uses any false writing or document knowing the same to contain any materially false, fictitious, or fraudulent statement or entry;
          . . . shall be fined under this title, imprisoned not more than 5 years or, if the offense involves international or domestic terrorism (as defined in section 2331), imprisoned not more than 8 years, or both.

          However, Subsection (b) exempts liars .
          Subsection (b) was slipped into a law that had been unchanged since 1948. The 1996 revision ballooned from 81 to 284 words. How many Congresspersons read it before they approved it?
          A real life “Get Out of Jail Free” Card—Subsection (B):

          “(b) Subsection (a) does not apply to a party to a judicial proceeding,* or that party’s counsel, writings or documents submitted by such party or counsel to a judge or magistrate in that proceeding.”

          Perfect example of why Senator Rand Paul is Right about reading laws first.

          The new law was sponsored by a one-term freshman Congressman from New Jersey, William J. Martini, who magically pushed it through in just seven months.

          Martini was subsequently sponsored for a federal judgeship by then Senator Jon S. Corzine, former CEO of Goldman Sachs. SEE HOW POLITICAL FAVORS WORK?

          UNTIL REPEAL of 18 USC § 1001 Section (b) is accomplished (if ever), EVERYTHING going on in civil legal courts is all for show. Barr, Durham, DOJ, the civil courts, the whole thing. Who gets burned is ALL a matter of political favors and who is controlled. THE ONLY WAY TO CLEAN UP CIVIL COURTS IS TO REPEAL 18 USC § 1001 Section (b).
          What are the chances of Congress cleaning up their own act?

          IMO the ONLY way to stop this is thru MILITARY courts which do NOT operate under CIVIL CODES. I think TRUMP knows this, hence the upgrades at GITMO.

    Irrefutable, indeed! Just excellent.

    As a couple people noted upthread (Alex1689 & ??? Alexander), The warrants on Wolfe, Watkins and Waldman would’ve picked up all their phone and digital comms, and Weissman leaked those texts, just as he leaked the Page-Strzok texts and removed them, to warn off everyone who’d been communicating with them. We also have the NYT sitting on and reporting from the unredacted FISA, so part of a coordinated coup effort. La Resistance.

    So I would anticipate that, among those surveilled, would be some foreign actors interested in and paying to manipulate our government. Waldman connected Warner to both Steele and Deripaska, I.e., both British Intelligence and Russian oligarchy. If a FISA was obtained on say Waldman, the two-hop rule would pick up a lot of intelligence assets and Russian and Eastern European operatives.

    So when agent Dugan pitches his evidence to Liu, the coup gets warned, and remedial steps are taken, hopefully, all surveilled and available as evidence.

    Simultaneously to this “Sundance activation”, Ghislaine Maxwell is arrested and a potential asset for truth and justice. “Crimes against children.”

    Simultaneously, John Solomon’s book Fallout is released (my copy is coming), zerohedge excerpt detailing some of the earliest steps in the U1 process through the eyes of long-hushed-up FBI CI Doug Campbell, and fingering Amos Hochstein, key energy advisor to Clinton, Obama, Biden, and Deep State revolving door lobbyist.

      You raise the name Deripaska because the Waldman texts to Warner that SD revealed last week mention Deripaska, a Russian oligarch with connections to Putin.

      I think there are more Senators involved in this mess to include McConnell as a member of the SSIC Gang of 8 as both Senate Majority and Minority leader who would have received briefings from Comey and Brennan. Therefore, by leaking the FISA, there was a lot to hide and signal to others of the danger.

      Back to Deripaska who is mentioned in the Walman text to Senator Warmer. Here’s a photo of McCain on Deripaska’s yacht in Montenegro. Recall that McCain sent a copy of the Steele dossier to the FBI and Graham was involved in that, too. You just KNOW McConnell, McCain, Sessions and other Senators had a hand in all of this. Just need to prove it.

  23. Excellent article. I have a question about Adam Waldman.

    You state that the FBI got/captured the 3/17/2017 text messages between Waldman and Warner because Warner and Watkins were subjects of the leak investigation. But you also say that these texts were captured on Waldman’s end, not Warner’s end, because it would be very tenuous for the FBI to capture texts messages from the sitting Vice-Chair of the SSCI. I agree that it would be difficult/tenuous for the FBI to be spying on the co-chair of the SSCI.

    Assuming you are correct about the FBI capturing these texts on the Waldman end, what would be the basis for FBI surveillance of Waldman at his point in the game? Put another way why was the FBI investigating Waldman in March of 2017? Is it possible a FISA warrant was in place on Waldman during this time frame?

    Like

    • doyouseemyvision says:

      The basis for FBI warrant on Waldman was because the FBI was tasked for sniffing out the plethora of leaks that had occurred. Because the FBI agent changed the date on the FISA sent to Wolfe, it looks like they had prior suspicions on previous leaks that SSCI was involved, and this was a “sting” operation to catch them in the act. Sundance mentions in previous articles that the SSCI was known by DOJ to be ‘corrupt‘.

      To your last question, the ‘F’ in FISA Is to surveille foreigners, so Waldman wouldn’t have been under a FISA warrant per se. But that’s just a technicality. Waldman would however have been under a different process —— a warrant to get phone data from the NSA. In the article above, Sundance mentions warrant.

      Along this line of thinking, you have me pondering something critical. The leaked FISA was on Carter Page. Is Carter Page an American citizen or a foreigner?

    -The successful prosecution of James Wolfe would have shown how the US Senate (both parties) weaponized the SSCI in an attempt to remove a President from office.

    -It would’ve shown the involvement of the SSCI, G of 8, and HPSCI in leaking classified information through willing media conduits, spanning every major news outlet, NYT and WAPO, to remove a sitting President from office, utilizing a massive media disinformation campaign against the American people.

    -It would have shown how the FBI illegally targeted one of its own known assets to advance a falsehood to remove a President from office via a spying campaign.

    -It would have shown how the DOJ (Main Justice) facilitated the FBI’s targeting of one of its own assets to advance a political narrative to remove a President from office.

    -It would have outlined the fraudulence and complicity of the entire Special Council team (DOJ again) in an attempt to remove a sitting President from office.

    In short, the prosecution of James Wolfe would have outlined almost the entirety of the mult-branch effort to remove a duly elected President from office, and how they attempted to manipulate the American people with the willing assistance of the US media who conducted a widespread disinformation campaign on the American people on their behalf.

    This is the “fork in the road” Rosenstein faced, and why he chose the path (cover-up) that he did. It also explains why the US media apparatus avoided reporting of any kind on the Wolfe indictment.

      dcnnc- I used the word “tentacles” above when referring to the importance of exposing the FISA leak. Great job describing many of the tentacles.

        No argument, but this presumes that the agent decided to follow the rules. You actually gave us the answer, the “agents are independent”. Headquarters is not handling this properly. So I must seek another path to revealing this corruption.

        The safest rout for the agent was to follow the rules and not to act independently. See, the difference.

        Dugan should be promoted. But, he had an even better opportunity from the looks of it.

    Within the early days of that effort, the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence initiated an investigation into Russian interference with the election. Chairman Richard Burr and Vice-Chair Warner were toasted throughout DC as an example of bipartisan oversight against what House minority leader Nancy Pelosi called a “fraudulent president.”

    Whenever the Dems praise a Republican as someone who “works across the isle, that’s always a dead giveaway – this person is a RAT!

    Okay, background time.

    In early 2017, AG Sessions, having recused himself from Russia Collusion was doing make-work tracing leaks. Out of all of the leaks which occurred only one, a low level government employee in Georgia, was ever filed. The rest went nowhere, including Wolfe. But, the Wolfe leak came from the SSCI, which was controlled by the Republicans. And, it was a slam dunk. If Wolfe had been indicted for leaking classified information, there is a good chance that he would have rolled over on one or more members of the SSCI. All of whom were members of the Never Trump camp. They had to be protected. Also, the Mueller SC and upper levels of the DOJ could not allow the original Carter page FISA warrant application out into the open. If that happened, then the factual basis for the warrant would likely be exposed as being exceptionally weak pr nonexistent. If tht happened, then it would put the FISC, members of the FBI and DOJ at risk and undermine all of the evidence currently being used against Flynn and others, which were derived from the warrant. So, all these assets had to be protected. On the other hand, the Wolfe leak was out of the bag. Something had to be done. So, he was offered a sweetheart deal on a charge of lying to the FBI and the whole thing was swept under the rug. At least temporarily.

    I love this thread, by far may favorite.

    Thank you Sundance!

    So we now know the FISA leak was planned and orchestrated to harm and possibly take down PT but the evidence was buried.

    This is all well and good but the part that is still missing is how do we get to…………

    Who was the person or persons who concocted this entire Russia Collusion scheme which included the fake Dossier and the false CP FISA information?

    And to get to this person or persons who are the possible players who could be squeezed or flipped to incriminate original planner(s)?

    I see 6-8 possible flippers.

    Don’t get me wrong as I totally see this as a COUP but I’m hoping to see another brilliant Sundance thread that connects the dots and moves this FISA leak and coverup which stretches across at least 2 branches of government back over to a COUP or Seditious Conspiracy against a sitting President and who planned it from the start.

      It all began with Jeb Bush. His failed campaign offered the research to Hilary Clinton, and the Clinton campaign went further.

      The fear that an outsider would see them naked was too much to bear! The money, corruption, failures spun into wins, fast and furious, Iran deal, Hilary’s server etc etc All there to see by someone who wasn’t a corrupted member of their club. I bet Trump has even seen Obama’s REAL birth certificate by now 😉

      The whole thing was like an ordinary working man allowed into the bank to see how they wasted, abused, and spent his hard earned money.

      Perhaps these people are not what they appear to be, and what they pretend to be.
      Perhaps they represent the interests of people other than the American citizenry.

    MESSAGE FOR: AGENT DUGAN who is probably reading this: THANK YOU Agent Dugan for the professional level work you did to uncover this egregious malfeasance. We (the silent majority) appreciate you! Please convey all that you know to Sundance so we take town the coup plotters, treasonous politicians, the RICO conspirators, and the seditionists. Fantastic work, Dugan!!

        I see three possible paths assuming the evidence was deleted in part from the Automated Case Support system (ACS).

        Backups from the existing system
        NSA database records
        Records from other agents involved in this case.

        It would also be interesting to know, who authorized the deletion of information from the ACS.

      mueller eliminated the FISA leak material sent to the court..since it was not needed to plead guilty to the charge of lying to the FBI.. this whole thing is a whitewash..

      The Judge then has plausible deniability..I never knew Wolf leaked a top secret document.. the 2 month sentence appropriate. Recommended by the DOJ

      The prosecutor and defense lawyer make the plea deal and cover up any potential liability ….. any thing related ..to the lying to the FBI… the leaking of top secret documents was the reason he lied..

      a win win for all crooks and plenty of cover.
