Sunday Talks: Steven Schrage Appears to Discuss His Role in “Spygate”…

We have a saying in the south: ‘hang around a one-legged man long enough and eventually you’re gonna start limping‘.  This interview is an example of how that cuts through the BS, spin and political chaff and countermeasures.  Steven Schrage should be trusted as far as you can spit into a hurricane – which is to say, not at all.

First, in an article to accompany his media effort, Schrage waxes philosophical and woefully about how his years-long good friend and phd supervisor, Stephan Halper, the one-legged character in the metaphor, turned out to be a politically motivated snake and spy.  Oh, but all the years previous this wasn’t noticed?  Not buying it.

Second, Schrage sat and watched Michael Flynn and Svetlana Lokhova get raked over the coals for three+ years only now, right now, to find his conscience bothered by his participation in assisting the lies pushed by his friend against them?  Isn’t that convenient timing?… Yeah, sure. I might have been born at night, but I wasn’t born last night.

Third, Schrage notes he was interviewed by John Durham. Horsepucky. Durham doesn’t interview anyone; someone else does, someone very specific; and the fact that Schrage has no clue who that person is implies an aspect to the side-show he now presents as total nonsense.  In short, this is a distraction story…. Look over there…. shiny things.

.

I’ve watched and researched these intelligence characters for so long their M.O. screams like visible strings on marionettes. And yes, once you see the strings it’s impossible to return to a time when you did not see them. This interview is a purposeful ruse.

[His article here]

I also do not fault Matt Taibbi or Maria Bartiromo for falling for it.

Devin Nunes was right about Schrage a YEAR AGO:

[…] What you have there is, you have an American citizen, somebody who’s long been involved in politics, and the guy’s name is Steven Schrage. Now, knows that the House Intelligence Committee, the Senate Intelligence Committee, the FBI, we want to talk to anyone and everyone who was dealing with Carter Page and other Trump associates, especially in early 2016.

Schrage is the one who invited Carter Page to this event. Schrage is the one who organized this event. So — but instead of coming forward, a guy who’s been involved in politics for this long doesn’t come forward? I want to know, did he know about the Steele dossier at that time? When did he find out about the Steele dossier? Did he have control of the Steele dossier at any time? Did he give it to anyone?

Those are the types of things that Steven Schrage needs to come clean on, because, you know, look, maybe he was just a guy working for minimum wage sweeping the floors around Cambridge. I highly doubt it.

And the fact that he hasn’t come forward in two-and-a-half years is highly suspect. Now, when you look at the other Brits that were involved there, Maria, if you — this also ties in with General Flynn, because these Brits were the ones who went public and said — specifically, Christopher Andrew said that General Flynn had a Russian girlfriend.  (more)

Nice try…

      This is a little bit off topic but it has the snooty, know it all, UK, Chris Steele Dossier connection………
      It is a podcast done Aug 6, 2020, with Steele and a UK Member of Parliament, Damian Collins (Conservative).
      Steel is being feted in the UK as someone whose opinion is of some value!! He contributed to some thing called, The Russia Report, which the Brits just put out.

        Damian Collins MP is an ardent remainer ( anti Brexit ) he headed up one of the DCMS sub committees on basically fake news, which he used to push some sort of nonsense that all these political groupings that were supportive of Brexit were either guilty of being fake news ( Aaron Banks, successful business man and pro Brexit group supporter laughably told Mr Collins and his committee to shrove off ) or being helped by Russians in some way. He is an idiot, same as Chris Steele – who was ” let go ” from M16 years ago, which is rather incredible since you have to be unbelievably shit to be fired from the Rubber Sole Squad !

    Ok, so I got this from wiki. Please no stone throwing.

    In July 2016, Dr. Schrage convened a high-profile conference at the University of Cambridge on the upcoming U.S. presidential election, entitled 2016’s Race to Change the World, which was based on his Harvard and Cambridge research and experience on Campaigns and Foreign Policy.[11] Conference guests included former Secretary of State and UN Ambassador Madeleine Albright; Republican Congressman and presidential campaign adviser Vin Weber; head of Mi6 Sir Richard Dearlove; UK Foreign and Defence Minister Malcolm Rifkind;the BBC’s lead diplomatic correspondent and head of Peterhouse College Cambridge Bridget Kendall, and several ambassadors and leading U.S./UK scholars.[12]

    At the symposium, FISA warrant subject Carter Page met FBI spy Stefan Halper for the first time, which launched the Russian collusion and Spygate controversies. Analysts on both sides of the political spectrum have called this “bigger than Watergate.”[13] Only a few weeks after this conference, the FBI’s controversial Crossfire Hurricane investigation of Trump campaign officials was launched.[14] No allegations of impropriety have been made related to Schrage’s involvement in this conference.

    • From Vin Weber’s Wiki page:

      Weber was one of the Republicans who turned against the surprise Donald Trump candidacy, telling CNBC on August 3, 2016,”I can’t imagine I’d remain a Republican if he becomes president.”

      For his lobbying Congress on behalf of pro-Russia entities, Weber received at least $700,000.

      From 2012 until February 2014 and directed by Paul Manafort and Rick Gates, Weber, who was the principal for Mercury’s Ukraine-related lobbying portfolio beginning in 2012, acted as an unregistered agent of a foreign government and foreign political party, a felony offense under the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA), with a penalty of up to five years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000.

        OH MY!

        At one point in my dive into politics for candidate Trump I had been fighting against the “leaders” of the GOP at the congressional level for the lies and rule breaking that constantly took place — by them. After one meeting a former CD Chair pulled me aside and whispered, “Be careful,” because, ‘there are people in high positions with a lot of power.’

        Besides the fact that I fully supported Donald Trump for President — and they did not — I was seen as a big time trouble maker.

        At the time I received the warning to be careful I totally blew it off and said I didn’t care. Later on I discovered the person with power was Vin Weber and I still didn’t care.

      It is good to be critical but that doesn’t mean Schrage’s account is false. If Trump wins reelection, which is looking likely, then the full story is going to get out eventually. Remember, Durham is trying to delay the big game until after the election to allow Biden’s handlers to squash it.

      It looks like Schrage wants his version where the setup was accidental to be the true version, and it yet may be, to ensure he still has a future after the election.

    I concur with CTH this is a red herring, a distraction….

    the actual investigator is gonna surprise a lot of folks because there is also a red herring investigator just as there is a red herring whistleblower for congress. The actual whistleblower is so respected that even to mention his name would be an earthquake.

    The 2 most important folks to blow this coup wide open was Adm. Rogers and Mr. XXXXXXXXX.
    Mr. XXXXXXXXX is also the guy that gave the roadmap of Internal USDOJ/FBI operations to Durham’s investigator as well…..

    What I like is the “whose who” of the coup know who he is and are terrified of him….. so much so to even mention his name requires a immediate report to the director and a 302 to be generated….

    Now if I just I had faith that they will do something — I don’t because I know the 1st and 2nd tenets of USDOJ:

    We are the law, the law is whatever we say it is; besides who is gonna stop us we are law

      Interesting that Halper’s recorded quote begins, “If you go to the NSC, you have to consider if you feel it’s appropriate for you to work for Flynn.”

      What exactly does this mean? Was Schrage considering going to the NSC to work for Flynn? There’s no context given. Halper simply starts talking in this excerpt about “you” going to the NSC.

      It’s obviously not about what Flynn himself might encounter at the NSC; it’s specifically with regard to someone working FOR Flynn.

      Was he using “you” as an impersonal, indefinite pronoun–meaning he’s speaking hypothetically about anyone going there to work for Flynn?

      Knowing that Schrage’s the one who invited Page and introduced him to Halper and knowing his connections to anti-Trump people like Romney, was perhaps there a plan for someone like him to be embedded into Flynn’s sphere? Another “insurance policy” on the off chance the coup against Flynn failed?

      Seems like a CYA to whitewash (cover up) any motivations for how Page came to be there and to get introduced to Halper.

Very few people seem to understand the significance of this part of her testimony.

    My question is, since Halper is very close to the Clintons, was this Steven Schrage character part of the original opo research dossier by the slime Blumenthal. This has his MO all over it.

    Schrage is insulating Halper from the invitation of Carter Page to the Cambridge event and suggests that Halper was not interested in Page until the actual event.

    But Schrage also throws Halper under the bus as the possible leaker of the Kislyak/Flynn calls to Ignatius (along with unnamed Republicans).

    These two tidbits are seemingly inconsistent but they can be reconciled as consistent if Schrage is trying to distract Durham (and the American people) from the actual identity of the leaker.

    We know James Baker (DoD) had close connections to Ignatius and that Baker had worked with and/or paid Halper big $ for his “work” during this general time period (remember the whistleblower?). If payments to Halper through Baker cover this timeline, or if Schrage had any dealings with Baker before going to Cambridge to complete his PhD, then Schrage could be covering for Baker.

      Easy to answer. John Durham has a well-known record of rooting out corruption and has hit both sides of the aisle in high profile cases. He took the Boston FBI/Whitey Bulger conspiracy down, which was Democrat corruption – much of which incidentally happened right under Bob Mueller’s nose. (Mueller was head of the criminal division of MA US Attorney’s office.)

      Durham a,so investigated, exposed and took down corrupt former GOP Governor of CT John Rowland. Durham was the obvious choice. Now he has to deliver.

        TT,

        The problem with this take on Durham is that although the Bulger investigation revealed some truths, no very higher ups in the FBI were held accountable, and Bulger received protection for YEARS on the lam (and somehow managed to eat during those years). It literally took going around the FBI in a surprise capture to bring him in. The evidence points to the FBI giving him heads ups every time anyone was close to finding him.

        Bulger, product of MKUltra experimentation with LSD injections, never snitched. But PDJT gets elected and as quick as you can say Jimminy Cricket, Bulger is transferred by Bureau of Prisons and beaten to death within 48 hours of arrival.

        FBI didn’t want to take a chance, IMHO.

        Remember, in the Bulger case, Mueller and Comey consciously left four innocent men to rot in prison. At least one died there.

        Where the H was awesome fearsome Durham then?

        BTW, there we have yet another CIA connection for those in the audience who are paying attention: Bulger and MK Ultra, which was run by the CIA’ s Richard Helms, Allen Foster Dulles, Sidney Gottlieb, and carried out by Louis Jolyon West, among many others. Dr. West, by the way, “treated” Jack Ruby into incoherent paranoia shortly before his interview with the Warren Commission, and gosh darn it if the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence didn’t run the interference on that one . . .

        Nothing is new under the sun. Nothing. Same creeps, fifty years later.

    Sundance…thank you for helping so many of us Treepers to see more clearly. This guy came across as sketchy from the “novel” he wrote explaining his actions. I’ve learned so much from reading your writings on CTH, along with other Treepers’ posts. I spotted him as a fraud from the start. We are truly blessed for the sharing of knowledge in our treehouse.❤

    I know people go all squeamish at the thought of ‘cruel and unusual’ means being used to elicit information from people – but I still think sitting each of the suspected perpetrators down in a hard backed chair and showing them a handful of different ‘vice grips’ – as well as explaining the proposed use of such instruments – is my preferred method of obtaining clarity in these matters.
    Of course, I would simply ask them to tell me what I would like to know – and I can be quite unmoved by protestations of pain and anguish.
    Whilst they deserve much harsher treatment, I think that this methodology would suffice.
    Of course, they would forever be ‘branded’ by the funny stiff fingers on their hands…
    I should note that I’ve long practiced the art of “Don’t get angry, get even – and laugh whilst so doing”.

    Got suspicious as soon as he started talking about how this needs to come out now and not as an October surprise. Suddenly, he believes the truth needs to come out.

    Thank you for clarity.
    Putting aside Schrage, what jumped out at me was Halper’s awareness/confidence of the fact that Flynn would soon be gone—on January 10, 2017, prior to the Strzok/Pientka interview of Flynn.

  42. Well I must be learning from hanging around the CTH!

    While watching the interview this morning, I was thinking. Yes, thinking.

    Skeptical questions, like, where’s this guy been? Why is he coming out now? What kind of PR blitz is this? When he mentioned Madeleine Albright, I started web surfing and came up with the Taibbi article and Devin Nunes’ mention of him last year, among other things. So he’s been a known entity, and I don’t trust what he’s saying . . . Sundance, you are an excellent teacher. Thank you.

    I agree entirely with your take. These things always taken on the character of a high stakes game of musical chairs. Schrage seems to have woken up to the prospect that Stefan “Guttman” Halper and some filthy Brits want him to take one for team.

    In the Taibbi piece he even squeaks complaint about Nunes without mentioning his name. What kind of an idiot thinks that anyone is going to believe him over Nunes?!

    Kinda disappointed to hear Durham doesn’t interview anyone, and apparently only has one, specific person that interviews people. In my experience, federal agents usually interview in pairs, or if the interview is done in, say an FBI field office, 2 agents in the interview room and 1 or more watching through the one way glass.

    If only one person is doing the interviews, an investigation of this scale will move at a glacial pace.

  47. Watched Schrage interview a second time.

    Carter Page told Maria B. that he had a “decades long relationship with the CIA” a while ago.

    Although he hasn’t broken cover fully, I’ve been fairly convinced Page was a CIA plant in the Trump Campaign from the get-go and was used as an anchor for the two hop FISA surveillance, whether he was told that would be his role or not. To me, Page has always seemed to be a man without direction, not knowing whether it was safe for him to come out and tell the truth or continue playing the patsy, wrongly targeted by the FBI.

    What I think Schrage, also a spook, is doing, is offering up Halper to protect the actual role Page played because, he (Page) is the lynchpin holding the entire charade together.

    Once it is discovered that Page was a government plant in the Trump campaign, its GAME OVER.

    I also question the authenticity of the Halper audio recording. . . . , seems too clean in quality and purpose. Flynn was targeted because he was going to blow the whistle on 0bama’s treasonous Iran deal – and that’s just for starters – and not because he was a hot head as the recording suggests.

    Yes, as well as being strangely late, Schrage’s story smelled a bit overly concocted.
    Twas like he’d pre-thought out the questions a skeptic might ask and answered them unasked.

        “Rice: Yeeks! If Trump stumbles on any of this I’m so screwed. Gotta, GOTTA come up with something.” (Writes CYA memo.)

        Schrage follows suit with a CYA interview. As Sundance often writes, once you have seen the strings, you can’t unsee them. Schrage is in full CYA mode.

    Combined with Yates testimony tossing Comey under the bus, and the rumor mill about no charges for Brennan – seems like the deep state is coalescing around their exit strategy.
