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?

          Here’s what happen right after the indictment:

          The Wall Street Journal reported that attorneys for the Director of Security of the Senate Intelligence Committee, James Wolfe, sent letters to all 15 senators on the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, notifying them that their testimony may be sought as part of Wolfe’s defense. Wolfe’s apparent defense was that he was acting on the instructions of his superiors when he leaked the Carter Page FISA application to reporter Ali Watkins in March 2017.

                  Well, Sundance, has stated that the leak came after Warner’s review. Add to this that ” both (Warner and Wolfe) were suspects in the investigation”. This can only be interpreted to mean that Wolfe was acting at the order of Senator Warner.

                  Sundance writes:
                  “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.

          I’m with you and it’s very simple. If Liu received the documents sans the Wolf leak evidence then who a DoJ removed it? Chain of custody issue. If DoJ can prove the entire packet was sent, then was it Liu or some in her office that removed it?

          Those details are good to know. Shot guns and sledge hammers have their place but precision when it comes to legal matters is a big deal.

            Thank you Jederman. I was really hoping for more than a U-2 overflight. The Chain of custody issue is critical in proving a conspiracy between Liu and the Muller Team. Was Liu following orders or was she acting independently to remove evidence. And speaking of evidence who ordered the FBI to delete the evidence from their computer system.

                  Well, Liu is involved in this one, too. I believe it was not prosecuted because NONE of the House Democrats wanted him (or his family/friends) indicted & refused to let either the Capital police or FBI look at their computers. Wasserman-Schultz defended the Awans like they were family.

                  There’s the possibility that one or more of the Awans were selling cars & taking the sale money & shipping it to Hezbollah, but this investigation got shut down because Ovomit wanting his Iran deal to go thru.

                  And of course, as Awan worked for Wasserman-Schultz, he likely had access to the DNC servers since she headed the DNC until it leaked out she was directing DNC delegates and/or DNC worker bees to screw Bernie. Awan was at the same party at a local bar with Seth Rich the night/morning Rich was arkancided.

          It would be easy to determine if Durham interviewed, under oath, both Liu and SC Mueller. Did Liu know or did Mueller hide the truth? My guess is that nobody is going to touch the Mueller investigation . . .because it brings into question Mueller”s (FBI), 10+ year tenure as FBI Director. This is an easy investigative process to get the truth. Question is does DOJ (Barr) want to disclose the truth. He knows because Liu suddenly left DOJ and went to Boeing, Barr is good at getting rid of people but why not indict? I guess we will see.


    • emeraldcoaster says:

      “So who ordered the evidence removed, the Muller team or Jessie Liu, or both?” The plea bargain for Wolfe holds the answer. If it absolves Wolfe of leaking classified information, the USAO for D.C. had the evidence in hand. Wolfe’s attorney would not okay a plea agreement without getting the crook off the hook for the worst offenses. And the threat to subpoena committee members indicates Wolfe’s attorney knew the worst of it.

        So, how do we get a copy of the plea bargain for Wolfe? Wolfe’s attorney would have been a member of the DOJ too. And, from previous Sundance statements main justice was under operational control by the Muller team. So now we have the DOJ prosecutor and DOJ defense attorney for Wolfe controlled by Muller’s team. No conflict of interest here.

        Little wonder how a ten year sentence, turns into nothing.

        Add to this that the grand jury knows nothing about the missing evidence.

      Agreed! I find it particularly interesting that Faux News employed one of thee most hated members of the GOP, Paul Ryan. An odd thing to do for a channel proclaiming Trump support.

      We all know the BS of trying to appeal to the masses by having alternative opinions on there, but the majority of the time those opinions are not based on facts, and are just more garbled CNN lies. In fact, I’d wager Faux News viewers discover more of CNN’s content on Faux News than any other channel bar CNN! Its almost like a conduit to get the CNN News out there!

      Hannity, uses CNN as a he said, she said, wind everyone up, and show CNN to be nuts, but when utterly corrupt, disgusting, and cowardly people like Graham, Gowdy go on there, does he ask hard questions? NO! Instead he treats his audience like the “dumb, smelly, Walmart shoppers” he claims the left are always doing. To add insult to injury, he interrupts the guests who should be listened to!

Paul Ryan isn’t the friend of people like you and I. Perhaps Ryan fancies himself a globalist King. I’m simply too much of a hick to ever understand what makes people like him tick.

        Fox News has never been the same since Roger Ailes was removed. Fox News was always his baby. Once Ailes was removed from the equation, Fox has crept steadily leftwards. Now they are little different than the CNN of ten years ago.

        Notice how any anchor or news personality that supported President Trump has been removed from the air, one by one. Hannity is just about the last man standing on the channel.

        I don’t believe Fox News was controlled opposition during its formative years. But its dramatic change over the past two years smacks of a controlled news outlet designed to shift the Overton Window for conservative viewers.

      This has been my assessment, too, for how we have uniformly biased coverage of major stories. If the media were not essentially a monolith, then when some media reported the failings, nee the outright corruption, of the Dems (especially Obama himself) and their lackeys in the bureaucratic state (D.C. squatters), other media would have to fall in line eventually or be outed as downright corrupt themselves.

      But when the media are a monolith, then they do not have to be held accountable. Sure, there is Fox News. But with that single entity, the rest of the media will proclaim that it is Fox News which is the lying liar. Those who subscribe to monolith reporting will believe that it is Fox (and a few smaller sites) which are the lying liars because they have been propagandized for so long by the real lying liars.

    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?

    Because Democrat Mark Warner is directly tied to this – maybe even instructed Wolfe to do it (could there be more captured communications that we haven’t seen?).

    So that would be a conspiracy to leak secret government documents by the leader of the Senate Intelligence Committee who at the time was conducting an investigation of President Trump for treason. How ironic!

    I would guess Wolfe knows a lot, and if he was prosecuted – Wolfe would sing his little, traitorous heart out. The Dems are trying to deep-6 this. Dems really know how to bury dead bodies… deep.

      Testimony can be compelled. Having relative immunity for the leak charge gives even MORE weight to a compulsion to testify. IF the law is followed, he cannot take advantage of the privilege against self-incrimination, if there is no consequence for the self-incrimination. Immunity is an antidote or countermeasure to the 5th amendment privilege against self-incrimination, so testimony can be compelled.

      Sundance implied in his post that he is cautiously optimistic about Barr/Durham, so I don’t think we should second guess him when he has more information about what’s going on than we do. I’ve not been a fan of them, but I am willing to wait because I can’t read minds and am not a fly on the wall in their offices to know what’s going on. And it’s foolish to be constantly thinking we know what they are thinking or doing. Too many people do that and it’s ridiculous.

      Something else I will mention that clearly few here really understand. Prosecuting a case, if done right, takes a long, long time to prepare and you can’t let it be known publicly what you’re doing or you will lose the edge as evidence and witnesses disappear. It has to be absolutely secret until you drop the indictment on them. What we think is evidence is often not useful to a prosecutor. They have to make sure they have it all lined up perfectly with evidence that will stand up in court, not just an opinion or they will lose their case.

      So, as much as I hate waiting, I have tried to be patient. Obviously that time is running out. If someone isn’t indicted before the election then justice may never be done. And if there aren’t indictments by then I’ll be one of the first to say it’s all been for naught.

        Most of us get that especially for large complex cases and when the crimes are nuanced and so many are involved, but why not prosecute a Kevin Clinesmith who clearly falsified an email–get some points on the board, fire a shot across the bow (choose your metaphor) or better hold him and imply that he is being highly cooperative. The thing about guilty people is that once significant heat is applied the one-for-all-all-for-one loyalty starts to melt pretty fast. Drop the hint that the first one to squeal wins and watch the rats scurry for the exit.

          Clinesmith clearly broke the law and likely has no viable defense. As such, it seems that he would be a very likely candidate for immunity for prosecution, if he were to cooperate to get the bigger fish, such as Comey, Brennan, Biden, Obama, the CCP, Soros, the Rothschilds, etc.

          If Clinesmith is cooperating, could that explain why he is not being prosecuted and we hear nothing about him?

      I think it’s clear that Warner leaked it in order to support the narrative of an ongoing FBI investigation. It’s like photographing the DA going in and out of a grand jury. He just didn’t know there was a leak investigation going on and they got caught.

      It’s a good bet that somewhere in Warner’s cell phone or even a meeting someplace, that Brennan, Clapper or Comey tipped him off to the FISA application. So, SSCI knew to ask for it with the purpose of creating news media reporting damaging to Trump. Like a lot of things in D.C., all that matters is that somebody in the media reports it and the bureaucrats and politicians then weaponize the reporting that they, themselves, initiated. “We just heard about this in the NYT and we are outraged!”

      The number of people who knew Carter Page was the subject of a FISA in Feb/Mar 2017 is pretty small…probably limited to a few in DOJ/NSD, the agents who wrote it (Strzok, Clinesmith), and whoever signed the request (I forget who signed it, but Comey and Yates were both signatories at some point or other).

          Oh I think the conspiracy here is staggering. Think about it. In Mar 2017, most media outlets had the unredacted FISA. There is no debate about who could be spied in under that FISA. Yet the media reported then, and still reports today, that Trump is insane when he (correctly) points out that they were spying on Trump Tower.

          These people are complicit in the coup. They buried evidence proving innocence. How many of them saw the actual Flynn/Kislyak transcripts (0), yet reported as fact that Flynn discussed the sanctions? All of them reported the lie, and pretended they had seen the transcripts or used the Fake News “sources say…” dodge.

          The purpose of the FISA leak was to spawn media reporting that suggested Trump was under criminal investigation. Look how long it took (IG Report, Dec 2019) before we found out the details. The details weren’t made known because they needed the FISA warrants to continue spying on Trump.

    On October 20, 2019, Sundance wrote an article titled “Durham’s trail to SSCI. Ali Watkins never slept with James Wolfe. It was a cover story.” There was great confusion among many posters here because Sundance’s article offered no evidence to support the bombshell assertion in the title. I have not seen Sundance write about this assertion since that article.

    Perhaps somewhere in Sundance’s current work we will see the evidence that the affair was a provable fabrication. Any such proof would have staggering implications. (For examples, Wolfe lied to both the prosecutors in connection with his plea deal and the Court at his sentencing hearing. Were others than the two principals involved in fabricating the cover story? Who and why? ……..)

      Sundance has written about the Wolfe thing many times. I remember when Liu was pushed out that the prevailing theory was that Wolfe’s conviction for lying to the FBI was basically him agreeing to plead guilty to a lesser charge in order to avoid being prosecuted for the leak. I remember reading the suggestion that Wolfe threatened to subpoena SSCI members, so the SSCI members asked to have the charges reduced to just the one about lying to the FBI.

      What Sundance writes about today is completely different.

      Today, it sounds like the leak was never a part of the grand jury deliberations, only lying to the FBI. It seems strange to me that the grand jury was never presented with the leak case because I would think the grand jury would ask “lied about what?” Well, the answer to that was his illegal leak, which I would think a grand jury would want to know more about and why the government wasn’t prosecuting the leak.

      It’s like the Flynn case. He plead guilty to lying, but nobody was ever provided evidence supporting what he allegedly lied about. No transcripts were ever provided. The agents’ notes were never provided (what they wrote down about the interview, all of it, is evidence pertaining to Flynn’s guilt or innocence).

      The corruption of the legal system here is just staggering.

      My Flynn questions include:

      – How can you be accused of lying about a phone call if you’ve never been allowed to see transcripts of the phone call, nor allowed to see the notes of the agents from the interview?
      – If the police accuse you of shooting someone, but fail to provide the gun they found (in fact, they never even tell you they have the murder weapon), and fail to tell you that your fingerprints aren’t on it and that the gun belongs to somebody else, do you have a right to change your mind if you find out about both of these things after you copped a plea to avoid a jury trial?
      – How is it that the FBI completely cleared Flynn of any and all wrongdoing in early January 2017, but the FBI still shows up to interview him for the nonexistent crime of talking to the Russian Ambassador?
      – If the Kislyak transcripts do not mention the sanctions imposed by Obama in Dec 2016, how could Flynn have lied about discussing the sanctions?
      – Why did the FBI and Mueller team withhold both the transcripts of the calls and the agents’ handwritten notes (pre-interview) and only provide one FBI 302 which suggested that Flynn had lied to them?
      – What does it say about our legal system that, no matter what you or I think about Flynn, clearly there was direct evidence that was deliberately withheld from Flynn?

    Go back to this period of time in early 2017 right after President Trump was inaugurated. I remember Paul Ryan started putting out videos of him speaking to groups of entranced high school or college kids, laying out his vision for the future, which was remarkably different than that of President Trump. I remember thinking that he was trying to set up a parallel set of government priorities to the one that we had just voted for. I will look a little harder tonight and see if I can find it. They really thought they were going to get Trump out quick. I remember instead of the first hundred days of the administration, Ryan convinced him that they would do a first 200 days. In other words, waste 8 months. When President Trump was still hanging around at the end of that, by about the first of the year, Ryan had decided or been ordered to go lame duck, and Tick Tock Run Out the Clock became the strategy of the GOPe, while they waited for Rosenstein and Mueller to work their magic.
