Sidney Powell Highlights The Intersection of The Flynn Case With NSA Metadata (Surveillance) Abuse…

Michael Flynn’s defense attorney Sidney Powell hits it out of the park as she connects the dots within the surveillance state and the use of FBI contractors to mine the NSA database.

A DEEP DIVE – How Did It Work?

Start by reviewing the established record from the 99-page FISC opinion rendered by Presiding Judge Rosemary Collyer on April 26, 2017. Review the details within the FISC opinion.

I would strongly urge everyone to read the FISC report (full pdf below) because Judge Collyer outlines how the DOJ, which includes the FBI, had an “institutional lack of candor” in responses to the FISA court. In essence, the Obama administration was continually lying to the FISA court about their activity, and the rate of fourth amendment violations for illegal searches and seizures of U.S. persons’ private information for multiple years.

Unfortunately, due to intelligence terminology Judge Collyer’s brief and ruling is not an easy read for anyone unfamiliar with the FISA processes. That complexity also helps the media avoid discussing it; and as a result most Americans have no idea the scale and scope of the Obama-era surveillance issues. So we’ll try to break down the language.

.

For the sake of brevity and common understanding CTH will highlight the most pertinent segments showing just how systemic and troublesome the unlawful electronic surveillance was.

Early in 2016 NSA Director Admiral Mike Rogers was alerted of a significant uptick in FISA-702(17) “About” queries using the FBI/NSA database that holds all metadata records on every form of electronic communication.

The NSA compliance officer alerted Admiral Mike Rogers who then initiated a full compliance audit on/around March 9th, 2016, for the period of November 1st, 2015, through May 1st, 2016.

While the audit was ongoing, due to the severity of the results that were identified, Admiral Mike Rogers stopped anyone from using the 702(17) “about query” option, and went to the extraordinary step of blocking all FBI contractor access to the database on April 18, 2016 (keep these dates in mind).

Here are some significant segments:

The key takeaway from these first paragraphs is how the search query results were exported from the NSA database to users who were not authorized to see the material. The FBI contractors were conducting searches and then removing, or ‘exporting’, the results. Later on, the FBI said all of the exported material was deleted.

Searching the highly classified NSA database is essentially a function of filling out search boxes to identify the user-initiated search parameter and get a return on the search result.

♦ FISA-702(16) is a search of the system returning a U.S. person (“702”); and the “16” is a check box to initiate a search based on “To and From“. Example, if you put in a date and a phone number and check “16” as the search parameter the user will get the returns on everything “To and From” that identified phone number for the specific date. Calls, texts, contacts etc. Including results for the inbound and outbound contacts.

♦ FISA-702(17) is a search of the system returning a U.S. person (702); and the “17” is a check box to initiate a search based on everything “About” the search qualifier. Example, if you put a date and a phone number and check “17” as the search parameter the user will get the returns of everything about that phone. Calls, texts, contacts, geolocation (or gps results), account information, user, service provider etc. As a result, 702(17) can actually be used to locate where the phone (and user) was located on a specific date or sequentially over a specific period of time which is simply a matter of changing the date parameters.

And that’s just from a phone number.

Search an ip address “about” and read all data into that server; put in an email address and gain everything about that account. Or use the electronic address of a GPS enabled vehicle (about) and you can withdraw more electronic data and monitor in real time. Search a credit card number and get everything about the account including what was purchased, where, when, etc. Search a bank account number, get everything about transactions and electronic records etc. Just about anything and everything can be electronically searched; everything has an electronic ‘identifier’.

The search parameter is only limited by the originating field filled out. Names, places, numbers, addresses, etc. By using the “About” parameter there may be thousands or millions of returns. Imagine if you put “@realdonaldtrump” into the search parameter? You could extract all following accounts who interacted on Twitter, or Facebook etc. You are only limited by your imagination and the scale of the electronic connectivity.

As you can see below, on March 9th, 2016, internal auditors noted the FBI was sharing “raw FISA information, including but not limited to Section 702-acquired information”.

In plain English the raw search returns were being shared with unknown entities without any attempt to “minimize” or redact the results. The person(s) attached to the results were named and obvious. There was no effort to hide their identity or protect their 4th amendment rights of privacy; and database access was from the FBI network:

But what’s the scale here? This is where the story really lies.

Read this next excerpt carefully.

The operators were searching “U.S Persons”. The review of November 1, 2015, to May 1, 2016, showed “eighty-five percent of those queries” were unlawful or “non compliant”.

85% !! “representing [redacted number]”.

We can tell from the space of the redaction the number of searches were between 10,000 and 99,999 [six digits]. If we take the middle number of 50,000 – a non compliant rate of 85 percent means 42,500 unlawful searches out of 50,000.

The [six digit] amount (more than 10,000, less than 99,999), and 85% error rate, was captured in a six month period, November 2015 to April 2016.

Also notice this very important quote: “many of these non-compliant queries involved the use of the same identifiers over different date ranges.” This tells us the system users were searching the same phone number, email address, electronic identifier, repeatedly over different dates.

Specific person(s) were being tracked/monitored.

Additionally, notice the last quote: “while the government reports it is unable to provide a reliable estimate of” these non lawful searches “since 2012, there is no apparent reason to believe the November 2015 [to] April 2016 coincided with an unusually high error rate”.

That means the 85% unlawful FISA-702(16)(17) database abuse has likely been happening since 2012.

2012 is an important date in this database abuse because a network of specific interests is assembled that also shows up in 2016/2017:

  • Who was 2012 FBI Director? Robert Mueller, who was selected by the FBI group to become special prosecutor in 2017.
  • Who was Mueller’ chief-of-staff? Aaron Zebley, who became one of the lead lawyers on the Mueller special counsel.
  • Who was 2012 CIA Director? John Brennan (remember the ouster of Gen Petraeus)
  • Who was ODNI? James Clapper.
  • Remember, the NSA is inside the Pentagon (Defense Dept) command structure. Who was Defense Secretary? Ash Carter

Who wanted NSA Director Mike Rogers fired in 2016? Brennan, Clapper and Carter.

And finally, who wrote and signed-off-on the January 2017 Intelligence Community Assessment and then lied about the use of the Steele Dossier? The same John Brennan, and James Clapper along with James Comey.

Tens of thousands of searches over four years (since 2012), and 85% of them are illegal. The results were extracted for?…. (I believe this is all political opposition use; and I’ll explain why momentarily.)

OK, that’s the stunning scale; but who was involved?

Private contractors with access to “raw FISA information that went well beyond what was necessary to respond to FBI’s requests“:

And as noted, the contractor access was finally halted on April 18th, 2016.

[Coincidentally (or likely not), the wife of Fusion-GPS founder Glenn Simpson, Mary Jacoby, goes to the White House the very next day on April 19th, 2016.]

None of this is conspiracy theory.

All of this is laid out inside this 99-page opinion from FISC Presiding Judge Rosemary Collyer who also noted that none of this FISA abuse was accidental in a footnote on page 87: “deliberate decisionmaking“:

This specific footnote, if declassified, could be a key. Note the phrase: “([redacted] access to FBI systems was the subject of an interagency memorandum of understanding entered into [redacted])”, this sentence has the potential to expose an internal decision; withheld from congress and the FISA court by the Obama administration; that outlines a process for access and distribution of surveillance data.

Note: “no notice of this practice was given to the FISC until 2016“, that is important.

Summary: The FISA court identified and quantified tens-of-thousands of search queries of the NSA/FBI database using the FISA-702(16)(17) system. The database was repeatedly used by persons with contractor access who unlawfully searched and extracted the raw results without redacting the information and shared it with an unknown number of entities.

The outlined process certainly points toward a political spying and surveillance operation; and we are not the only one to think that’s what this system is being used for.

Back in 2017 when House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes was working to reauthorize the FISA legislation, Nunes wrote a letter to ODNI Dan Coats about this specific issue:

SIDEBAR: To solve the issue, well, actually attempt to ensure it never happened again, NSA Director Admiral Mike Rogers eventually took away the “About” query option permanently in 2017. NSA Director Rogers said the abuse was so inherent there was no way to stop it except to remove the process completely. [SEE HERE] Additionally, the NSA database operates as a function of the Pentagon, so the Trump administration went one step further. On his last day as NSA Director Admiral Mike Rogers -together with ODNI Dan Coats- put U.S. cyber-command, the database steward, fully into the U.S. military as a full combatant command. [SEE HERE] Unfortunately it didn’t work as shown by the 2018 FISC opinion rendered by FISC Judge James Boasberg [SEE HERE]

There is little doubt the FISA-702(16)(17) database system was used by Obama-era officials, from 2012 through April 2016, as a way to spy on their political opposition.

Quite simply there is no other intellectually honest explanation for the scale and volume of database abuse that was taking place; and keep in mind these searches were all ruled to be unlawful. Searches for repeated persons over a period time that were not authorized.

When we reconcile what was taking place and who was involved, then the actions of the exact same principle participants take on a jaw-dropping amount of clarity.

All of the action taken by CIA Director Brennan, FBI Director Comey, ODNI Clapper and Defense Secretary Ashton Carter make sense. Including their effort to get NSA Director Mike Rogers fired.

Everything after March 9th, 2016, had a dual purpose: (1) done to cover up the weaponization of the FISA database. [Explained Here] Spygate, Russia-Gate, the Steele Dossier, and even the 2017 Intelligence Community Assessment (drawn from the dossier and signed by the above) were needed to create a cover-story and protect themselves from discovery of this four year weaponization, political surveillance and unlawful spying. Even the appointment of Robert Mueller as special counsel makes sense; he was FBI Director when this began. And (2) they needed to keep the surveillance going.

The beginning decision to use FISA(702) as a domestic surveillance and political spy mechanism appears to have started in/around 2012. Perhaps sometime shortly before the 2012 presidential election and before John Brennan left the White House and moved to CIA. However, there was an earlier version of data assembly that preceded this effort.

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.

The IRS scandal was never really about the IRS, it was always about the DOJ asking the IRS for the database of information. That is why it was transparently a conflict when the same DOJ was tasked with investigating the DOJ/IRS scandal. Additionally, Obama sent his chief-of-staff Jack Lew to become Treasury Secretary; effectively placing an ally to oversee/cover-up any issues. As Treasury Secretary Lew did just that.

Lesson Learned – It would appear the Obama administration learned a lesson from attempting to gather a large opposition research database operation inside a functioning organization large enough to have some good people that might blow the whistle.

The timeline reflects a few months after realizing the “Secret Research Project” was now worthless (June 2012), they focused more deliberately on a smaller network within the intelligence apparatus and began weaponizing the FBI/NSA database. If our hunch is correct, that is what will be visible in footnote #69:

How this all comes together in 2019/2020

Fusion GPS was not hired in April 2016 just to research Donald Trump. As shown in the evidence provided by the FISC, the intelligence community was already doing surveillance and spy operations. The Obama administration already knew everything about the Trump campaign, and were monitoring everything by exploiting the FISA database.

However, after the NSA alerts in/around March 9th, 2016, and particularly after the April 18th shutdown of contractor access, the Obama intelligence community needed Fusion GPS to create a legal albeit ex post facto justification for the pre-existing surveillance and spy operations. Fusion GPS gave them that justification in the Steele Dossier.

That’s why the FBI small group, which later transitioned into the Mueller team, were so strongly committed to and defending the formation of the Steele Dossier and its dubious content.

The Steele Dossier, an outcome of the Fusion contract, contains three insurance policy purposes: (1) the cover-story and justification for the pre-existing surveillance operation (protect Obama); and (2) facilitate the FBI counterintelligence operation against the Trump campaign (assist Clinton); and (3) continue the operation with a special counsel (protect both).

An insurance policy would be needed. The Steele Dossier becomes the investigative virus the FBI wanted inside the system. To get the virus into official status, they used the FISA application as the delivery method and injected it into Carter Page. The FBI already knew Carter Page; essentially Carter Page was irrelevant, what they needed was the FISA warrant and the Dossier in the system {Go Deep}.

The Obama intelligence community needed Fusion GPS to give them a plausible justification for already existing surveillance and spy operations. Fusion-GPS gave them that justification and evidence for a FISA warrant with the Steele Dossier.

Ultimately that’s why the Steele Dossier was so important; without it, the FBI would not have a tool that Mueller needed to continue the investigation of President Trump. In essence by renewing the FISA application, despite them knowing the underlying dossier was junk, the FBI was keeping the surveillance gateway open for Team Mueller to exploit later on.

Additionally, without the Steele Dossier the DOJ and FBI are naked with their FISA-702 abuse as outlined by John Ratcliffe.

    This is why they freaked out when Trump came down that escalator….

    They were spying on whoever they wanted whenever they wanted, and not just politicians.

    They used that thing for insider trading, crushing their enemies, picking winners and losers, and lining their own pockets.
    Trillions of dollars are at stake, and “they” controlled it.

    But they didn’t control Trump.
    And what they did to get Trump is just the tip of the iceberg.
    Imagine all the fatcats that we’re paying for access…
    This thing is way bigger than any of us imagined.

      AtomicCB, thank you for bringing the insider trading aspect forward. I missed Sundance’s password a week or so ago and have refrained from commenting because of what I might have missed. However, the insider trading use of the database is out in the open now and is as nefarious as the surveillance for blackmail use of the database.
      Perhaps a discussion for another thread: so we have the military in charge of the database because it is needed for national security. Should we expect billionaire generals now?

        The people need to revolt, clean house. Only those in legislature, judicial, military, FBI, CIA, deep state with a history of fighting for the people should be allowed to stay. All others put on intensive review probation while NSA data searches are done on them: All the FISA contractors and their employees, all the legislators, lobbyists, marketers, media, university educators, every federal employer or contractor.

        There is ample evidence to do a defensive review on everyone. We can even set the bar really low and only the most egregious violators, only the most predatory people who made the orders to search or act on illegal infomation be fully perp-walked. If you want to avoid prosecution, you sing about everything you know and you out the masterminds and the instigators. If you sing fully and it matches your database, you simply lose your position. But the worst criminals are prosecuted fully for treason, sedition, RICO, etc.

    The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) was introduced on May 18, 1977, by Senator Ted Kennedy and was signed into law by President Carter on 25 October 1978.

    I don’t believe in coincidences….Duping us for decades? Now we find that our 4th Amendment rights are forfeited due to ‘National Security’ issues. Our government hasn’t had a budget since George W. Bush and the spending or the “fundraiser” has been in the Trillions.

      But it is.

      Just think back to pre-July 5, 2016 and the image of James Comey and the FBI: He was a Boy Scout, a man of impeccable integrity, and there is no WAY he would jeopardize the reputation of the FBI as an institution to help Hillary Clinton with a cheap political cover up.

      How wrong we were! Not only did he spike the investigation, he did it in a way that was so “in your face” that it left no doubt about what was going on: Clinton and her pals in the Big Club owned the team, the game, and the field, and there isn’t anything we can do about it. F-U flyover country rubes.

      And then he followed up THAT appalling stunt with a phony investigation of the Trump campaign, which morphed into a coup.

      I never would have believed it. But it happened. I can’t doubt what my eyes show me.

    You are justified in having these suspicions and are in good company. Sundance once posited that Admiral Rogers may not have been the noble hero we have believed. (although I could not find that post later when I searched) The effect of a core belief being challenged in the Spygate saga had a dramatic effect in me. So much so, I saved the posts from other Treepers who had similar suspicions. I will list them below. Then in Feb of this year, @roscoebdavis1 Tweeted:
    “Now this is the biggie as far as I’m concerned. FOr the last three years I along with a bunch of others have been running with the Story the Adm Mike Rogers was who warned Trump about the illegal surveillance he was under. That was fake news I’ve been informed directly. If he cares to chime in and vouch for this he will, but this is huge and explains a few unanswered question I had on the timeline of SpyGate and why Rogers didn’t do more than what he did. It also explains that after he “supposedly” warned the FISC, the Page warrant continued. Personally it’s disappointing but it answers question and explains exactly how swampy this damn thing is. SHines a new light on Mike Rogers as far as I’m concerned. Also explains a few of his post career speaking engagements and comments he made.” (A commenter replied that Admiral Rogers most likely met with Trump to interview for the ODNI position)

    @roscoebdavis1 goes on to say:
    “It was Ezra Watnick-Cohen who informed the Pres-elect that Trump Tower was being surveilled and that’s when POTUS moved his entire transition team to Bedminster, to his country club. That’s a huge revelation after all this time. This came directly from a transition team member.”

    Here begins the most prescient Treeper posts:

    Something that has always bothered me but never shared here since Adm Rogers is held in such high esteem…

    He should have known when he ordered the audit in April that the unusual activity was aimed at Obama/Clinton political rivals, yet he waits until the audit is finished, just weeks before the election to speak up?

    I suppose there was no one to turn to, yet he could have gone to Nunes, or someone

    I am hoping Durham is also discussing the “Russian hack” with Rogers. To do a thorough investigation of Spygate, that is a cornerstone. The NSA would certainly have captured the exfiltration of emails from the DNC if it was really done remotely

    I’ve never been comfortable with the Admiral Rogers is a hero narrative. I remember him sitting next to Comey testifying before Congress. He sat in a subservient position while Comey lied and advanced false narratives. Rogers never contradicted or disagreed with any of Comey’s assertions. We’re three years into this nonsense, and Rogers has never publicly stated or acknowledged as true what the tik tokers are saying about him.

    I previously had a couple questions regarding Adm Rogers and his role, maybe Sundance already addressed and I missed. He’s definitely a hero, but it sounds like there was abuse of spying/searching on these databases for a few years (2012?), but no one ever caught it until March 2016? Incompetence or most everyone was crooked? Regarding when Adm Rogers briefed Pres elect Trump in November 2017, not til shortly after the election, and he moved his HQ the very next day….it sounds like Trump was unaware of spying until that moment. But the abuse/scandal was exposed around March/April 2016….why did it take so long? It was kept secret, nothing was done about it? Wasn’t it obvious the massive spying on Republican candidates and many people around them? Why wasn’t anyone notified and the whole conspiracy get blown up and our leaders throughout our government/nation start screaming about the spying to cheat and sway an election? Did everyone keep it quiet until after the election, or did Adm Rogers hopefully contact Trump way before that? What if Hillary won? Would Trump ever have been notified? Also, I’m guessing the initial purpose of spying was to find dirt on their opponents, and spy on their strategy so the Dems could defend or counterattack and gain advantages against the Republicans. So people had to collect, analyze and package that information and give it to Hillary and/or the DNC. Has their been any evidence of transfers of info found? A missing link of sorts? Or maybe that was those 30,000 emails that got destroyed.

    I have a couple of questions. In her order, Collyer states that there was illegal activity surrounding the 702, but that it wasn’t limited to just that. What other NSA tool were they accessing? Also, who is the other agency that had a memorandum of understanding with the FBI?

    Anyone that touched any part of this, from the FISA to the spying, needs to be fully prosecuted as part of this coup. Because I certainly didn’t miss any whistle blowers or press leaks screaming about this. It’s only been because of certain people like Rogers, Nunes, Solomon and others that we have the information coming out now

      Maybe that info was suppressed intentionally to (A) keep a narrative alive and (B) keep the truth hidden, not just from those with nefarious intent, but by those with good intent. And I agree with commenters upthread as to wondering why Rogers didn’t speak to Trump until AFTER the election. And didn’t speak up during other’s testimony. And why so much communication collection data was supposedly expunged by the NSA. Of course it begs the question as to why Rogers shut down NSA access to contractors at all. An inside play by him against other Deep Staters? ‘Give me what I want and I’ll give your access back?’ Speculating.

    Sidney is seeing all the deep state ugliness and evil tied together like a web. Her tone is steady, yet portrays disgust at times (hello, Brennan).

    First though, Sundance drew it all together: “Everything after March 9th, 2016, had a dual purpose: (1) done to cover up the weaponization of the FISA database….. And (2) they needed to keep the surveillance going.“

    SD and Sidney are blessings for our country, two great patriots of our time.

    As we all know from years of following Sundance this treachery on the American people goes back beyond 2012. My thoughts are that it started as of Inauguration Day 2008. The surveillance state created during the Emperor Obamicus reign was admitted to by none other than Mad Maxine on the Roland Martin show in February of 2013. If you’ve never seen this little nugget of her typical verbal vomit here is a link…

    Due to the depth of the surveillance state created by the “hope and change” administration we will most likely never see justice served for all of their crimes. I do believe however, that what is going to come forward in 9 days will be a become part of US History taught for generations to come.

    Keeping my powder dry in Northern Virginia, and awaiting the great reveal by Sundance.

    Has anyone considered that the “spying” and insider trading has probably been going on since the Clinton’s were in the White House? Snippets of things keep coming to mind, like Donald Rumsfeld telling the American people about 9trillion missing from the Pentagon just a day or two before 9-11.

    The shenanigans the Clinton’s were up to while in power come to mind. The Clinton’s were involved in criminal activities during the time he was Governor of Arkansas.

    I suspect that if we really start digging and going back prior to 9-11 we’ll find the abuse has been going on since it’s inception, but the criminal Obama administration took it to new levels. Just a suspicion on my part.

      The timeline is probably the best way to figure out how these criminals managed to rip off the entire world.

      That’s what they did.

      Nixon opened up China.

      The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) was introduced on May 18, 1977, by Senator Ted Kennedy and was signed into law by President Carter on 25 October 1978.
      Enacted by: the 95th United States Congress
      Effective: October 25, 1978

      Later the Clinton’s/Gore/DNC was fond of Chinese money for their campaigns. The DOJ/CIA/FBI didn’t seem to mind.

      Yep. Been going on for a while.

      I think in their minds (Washington DC) they thought it was going to happen anyway (5 Eyes, other countries like Russia, China, Korea(s) etc…. So the Swamp decided to get in there first and then the Deep State and their benefactors decided to make it “Global”. More money to steal, more power to gain.

    “this is the corruption that President Trump was SENT to Washington to get rid of…”

    SENT
    TO
    WASHINGTON

    Not sure if Sidney Powell let slip a nugget about a premeditated ‘plan’ (if you will) to have President Trump lead our country thru this purge of the deep state?
    Or, if she simply believes that our Lord, with divine intervention, sent our country President Trump??

    Although human as any of us, I feel an attorney as sharp & savvy as Sidney Powell is beyond cogent in her verbiage. Without getting too far into the weeds, or trying to convince anyone here about ‘plans’, I take Sidney’s words as a message of optimism!!!

    Godspeed, Patriots!!!

    UPDATE TO FLYNN CASE: DC Court of Appeals Requests Parties Address Whether Judge Sullivan Should Disqualify Himself
    By Jim Hoft
    Published August 5, 2020

    The US Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit issued an order on July 10 that gave General Flynn and DOJ attorneys 10 days to respond to Judge Emmet Sullivan’s latest trick to delay the exoneration of General Michael Flynn.

    The deep state judge still refuses to drop the case against General Flynn despite the DOJ’s announcement weeks ago now to drop all charges against targeted Trump associate because of prosecutorial misconduct.

    The wacky far left judge won’t release Flynn from the charges that were dropped weeks ago.
    It’s really a brazen move for the corrupt DC judge.

    Flynn’s attorneys today claimed Judge Sullivan’s efforts should be denied – he “has no cognizable interest in this case.”

    My two personal, pet conspiracy theories:

    1 – NSA analysis of comm traffic nodes helped The Left identify Tea Party people & groups that were most effective, raising money, etc, amidst a vast, energetic sea of grass-roots political activity. The targeted people & groups were then given special attention by the IRS (lawfare), media (dezinformatsiya) and various alphabet-soup agencies (intimidation).

    2 – Remember the compromise of 4 million+ OPM Security Clearance files to China? I’ll bet a case of very good beer that the very same Deep State elements using NSA data as described above, purposely leaked all of that OPM data (maybe except their own), to provide plausible deniability in the public square, whenever that OPM info was detected as being leveraged by them, against conservative/political opponents, or other threats to the Dhimmicrats, et al. There – I said it.

    Commie is, as commie does. Doom On Them.
