Igor Danchenko and a 34 Month Long DOJ/FBI Cover-Up Operation….

CTH friend, researcher and producer John Spiropoulos helps connect the dots within the operation to cover-up corrupt activity by James Comey, Andrew McCabe, James Baker, Christopher Wray, Dana Boente and the entire special counsel group.

In this video John walks us through the internal evidence showing how the FBI intentionally hid the statements by Christopher Steele’s primary sub-source Igor Danchenko.  The result…. a 34 month cover-up operation.

.

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham released the declassified documents on July 17th. [Thank You John Ratcliffe] The documents relate to how the intelligence apparatus conducted surveillance abuses against the Trump campaign in 2016; and ultimately the Trump administration after the inauguration.

The first document [Direct pdf here] is the Washington Field Office (WFO) FBI briefing summary of a three day interview with Chris Steele’s primary sub-source. The document is highly redacted, but we already know from the IG release what the total content of the briefing revealed. The first interview was conducted on January 12, 2017, during the transition period between administrations. The classification term “SIA” stands for Source Identifying Attribute.

Per Senator Lindsey Graham:

♦ This document not only demonstrates how unsubstantiated and unreliable the Steele dossier was, it shows that the FBI was on notice of the dossier’s credibility problems and sought two more FISA application renewals after gaining this awareness.

♦ The document reveals that the primary “source” of Steele’s election reporting was not some well-connected current or former Russian official, but a non-Russian based contract employee of Christopher Steele’s firm. Moreover, it demonstrates that the information that Steele’s primary source provided him was second and third-hand information and rumor at best.

♦ Critically, the document shows that Steele’s “Primary Sub-source” disagreed with and was surprised by how information he gave Steele was then conveyed by Steele in the Steele dossier. For instance, the “Primary Sub-source”: did not recall or did not know where some of the information attributed to him or his sources came from; was never told about or never mentioned to Steele certain information attributed to him or his sources; he said that Steele re-characterized some of the information to make it more substantiated and less attenuated than it really was; that he would have described his sources differently; and, that Steele implied direct access to information where the access to information was indirect.

In total, this document demonstrates that information from the Steele dossier, which “played a central and essential role” in the FISA warrants on Carter Page, should never have been presented to the FISA court. (Senate Link)

Here’s the FBI Briefing Summary: [Direct pdf Link]

.

The inspector general already reviewed this briefing material and explained the content in the IG report on FISA Abuse in December 2019. Here’s the nub of that full review:

The aspect of the primary sub-source deconstructing and undermining the underlying material within the Steele Dossier is critical because ultimately the dossier underpinned the FISA application.

When you recognize the FISA application itself was based on a fraudulent premise; and you recognize the intentional ignoring of the underlying evidence; then the motive behind the FISA becomes clear. The FISA against Carter Page was used as a justification for surveillance of Donald Trump that had been ongoing by Obama intelligence officials.

This context becomes stunningly more important when you look at how the FISA was used by the Mueller investigation to continue its weaponization throughout 2017 and even into 2018. Remember, in July of 2018 long after the source material was debunked, the special counsel office was still telling the FISA court the predication for the FISA application and renewals was valid.

Drive this point home.

This is a key to understanding the scope of how weaponized the Mueller team was.

In July of 2018 the special counsel resistance group was lying to the FISA court in order to protect the cornerstone document that permitted them to weaponize the intelligence apparatus.

This letter was written July 12, 2018. It is NOT accidental that only a week later, July 21st, the special counsel released the FISA application under the guise of FOIA fulfillment.

Aside from the date the important part of the first page is the motive for sending it. The Mueller team running the DOJ is telling the court in July 2018: based on what they know the FISA application still contains “sufficient predication for the Court to have found probable cause” to approve the application. The resistance unit running the DOJ is defending the Carter Page FISA application as still valid.

On page #8 [Source Document Here] when discussing Christopher Steele’s sub-source, the special counsel group notes the FBI found him to be truthful and cooperative.

This is an incredibly misleading statement to the FISA court because what the letter doesn’t say is that 18-months earlier the sub-source, also known in the IG report as the “primary sub-source”, informed the FBI that the material attributed to him in the dossier was essentially junk.

By July 2018 the DOJ clearly knew the dossier was full of fabrications, yet they withheld that information from the court and said the predicate was still valid. Why?

It doesn’t take a deep-weeds-walker to identify the DOJ motive.

In July 2018 Robert Mueller’s investigation was at its apex.

This letter justifying the application and claiming the current information would still be a valid predicate therein, speaks to the 2018 DOJ needing to retain the validity of the FISA warrant…. My research suspicion is that the DOJ needed to protect evidence Mueller had already extracted from the fraudulent FISA authority. That’s the motive.

In July 2018 if the DOJ-NSD had admitted the FISA application and all renewals were fatally flawed Robert Mueller would have needed to withdraw any evidence gathered as a result of its exploitation. The DOJ in 2018 was protecting Mueller’s poisoned fruit.

If the DOJ had been honest with the court, there’s a strong possibility some, perhaps much, of Mueller evidence gathering would have been invalidated… and cases were pending. The solution: mislead the court and claim the predication was still valid.

♦ The FISA was also released in July 2018 in order to retain the false premise behind it. The copy that was released by the special counsel, through Rod Rosenstein, contained redacted dates because the special counsel needed to hide the fact the FBI (Washington Field Office) had actually used the FISA to catch a leaker of classified intelligence, James Wolfe.

Again, Wolfe’s story is the fulcrum…. tell that story and the House of Cards collapses like the Potemkin village it is. {GO DEEP}

The resistance lawyers in the Mueller team released the same initial FISA application (and first renewal) used to catch Wolfe; they had to release that specific March 17, 2017, copy. However, they had to redact the dates on the document they released because the dates were changed by SSA Brian Dugan to catch Wolfe.

The March 17, 2017, copy of the FISA, an FBI investigative equity, went into Main Justice with the leak trap visible. When the special counsel released the FISA application to Rosenstein for public FOIA fulfillment they had to redact the dates or people would ask questions about why this specific version had different dates than the original.

The March 17, 2017, copy of the FISA application is the only one to date that has been in the public sphere; including reviewed by OIG Michael Horowitz. That’s why when Horowitz originally released his FISA report, the OIG kept the dates redacted and only revealed them after the irrelevance of classification was pointed out.

The March 17th Wolfe copy of the first half of the full FISA application (original and first renewal), is the only copy that has ever been made public. If we were to ever see the modified and unredacted copy the FBI gave to Wolfe, the dates would not match with the actual dates of the application(s). The dates were used as part of the leak trace.

The Mueller team knew the explosive nature of the FBI investigation to catch the SSCI leaker. The Mueller team, with full control over Main Justice, was the group that buried FBI Supervisor Special Agent Brian Dugan’s explosive investigative findings.

Expose the conduct of this group and everything about the insurance policy falls into place:

            If this is true, then J Edgar Hoover specifically is a better bet than WWII. It’s amazing to me people don’t make a bigger stink of the fact he basically ran the FBI for half a century. If this were a less prestigious nation, the power dynamic implications would be obvious instead of merely controversial or a conspiracy theories. Even if he was/were a “white hat”, that kind of presence and influence would definitely be deeply engraved into the broader federal government.

The ball is now squarely in Barr’s court to do the right thing or to choose oppression for the American people. Time is fleeting.
            I, too, believe there are good and decent people within the DoJ and the FBI but they are at present scared to do the right thing. They fear for their families. Most, I believe, don’t fear for themselves. How many are in this group? It’s hard to tell. Let’s hope it is more than a handful. We can only pray that there are more Dugans than Strzoks.

          RedZone, thanks for the document… However I am not sure if that is the interagency MOU that FBI was operating under in late 2016 to March 2017…

          “The improper access granted to the redacted contractors was apparently in place redacted and seems to have been the result of deliberate decisionmaking. redacted Compliance Report at 92-93(redacted access to FBI systems being subject of an interagency MOU entered into redacted“…

          As all fellow Treepers well know, there is a lot to absorb and I believe that the best starting place is back when all the spying began…

        Perhaps it is a reluctance to put their credibility on the line. However, that in itself undermines their credibility in my eyes. I am certain that Rush, all his stand ins, Levin, Laura, Tucker and others are aware of CTH and what is going on. They read here.

                  I made a simple flowchart, starting with the [taxpayer] –taxes–> [Govt] —-> [govt employees] —> [ public unions] —-> [uniparty] which is at the bottom of the flowchart.
                  Also a second branch going from [Govt] —> [Domestic NGO]—->[NGO Staff] —political donations–> [uniparty]

                  Now a third leg [“Foreign Aid” NGO] —>[Foreign power brokers]—-foundation donation–>[uniparty]. Just as a thought. But on paper it looks damning how uniparty enriches themselves at taxpayer expense.

          The only requirement to get that information was to pay enough money to hire a contractor that also worked for a government agency which gave them access to the information. It seems the way to find this, if one could get the information, is to make a list of contractors with TS/SCI clearances that supported the FBI, CIA, NSA, and the unnamed agency (DoS?) and then cross correlate that with opposition research contractors hired for work on state and local elections. Wherever one can make the contractor cross correlation and the charges for the opposition research are unusually large there is a good chance they were using the NSA database to spy.

      Which is an unsupportable claim, because Comey himself publicly testified to The World that the dossier was “salacious and unverified”. Which to any logically-thinking person translates to: “oh, so the dossier itself may or may not have been Russian Disinformation.” The FBI didn’t know, and didn’t care to know… they just ran to the FISC with it.

      Which, BTW, is the other Defense-Spin-Deflection floating around the Propagandasphere: “we were ‘duped’ by Russian Disinformation”. Mmmmkay.

      Gonna be interesting to see how the lawsuit against Fox News by the family of Seth Rich plays into all of this. The presiding judge has ordered Julian Assange to be deposed for the proceeding. Will the DOJ refuse to allow that ? I think Assange admitting where he got the emails from (and I personally believe it was indeed from Seth Rich) is the ONLY thing that will grab Americans attention on this story. Other wise it is simply too complex to understand for the average voter. Especially when the mainstream media is avoiding the story and Google, Twitter, et al are doing their utmost to suppress it. Scary times for the continuation of our country under the Constitution that now exists.

        That Assange has not disclosed where he got the data from is probably the only thing that’s keeping him alive. WikiLeaks will unleash something if anything happens to Assange.

        Alan Waldman just about had a meeting setup that Assange would come in protected custody to the U.S. & meet w/Dave Laufman to tell him where he got the data & help show where the intelligence leaks were coming from.

        Sen. Warner learned of the arrangement & nixed it.

        Laufman is pro-Hildebeast & participated in the FBI questioning of Hildebeast on 7/3/2016 re her private server & emails, allowed her lawyers, who were witnesses, in the room, didn’t swear her in, etc.

        Laufman then represented Dr. Susan Blassey-Ford’s FBI friend, Monica Mc_______, who wrote the letter to not-so-fine Feinstein in the confirmation of Justice Kavanaugh re his alleged rape of Ford.

If there is any risk that he might appear in court somewhere free to speak it is likely that he will unfortunately die from Covid-19.

        Nope, not Nellie. But Igor Danchenko got marching orders from Steele to find/confirm some pre-arranged story (Cohen in Prague), and then his social circle then made something up or asked around and passed back rumours.
        It may have been Nellie or another Fusion-GPS staffer who looked in NSA query DB and saw that a person named Micheal Cohen (wrong one) had been in Prague. And then they would forward that to Igor Danchenko in Washington, who would pass it on to members of his social circle. In the case of Cohen in Prague the fairy tale that came back was from sub-sub-source#3 Olga Galkina (a press secretary who has no relevant education or background in computers, apart from being press secretary for a hosting company for a while).

        Here’s sub-sub-source#2: Ivan Vorontsov a beer buddy of Igor Danchenko.

        The allegation that “Donald Trump paid prostitutes to pee on an Obama bed” is sourced to him (Ivan), but in fact all he did was confirm that similar rumours existed around RU politicians, and that hotels such as the Ritz could have camera’s. Also he (Ivan) asked Hotel staff and reported back that it couldn’t be confirmed and were just rumours.

          The impeachment process (Nov. 2019-first part of Feb. 2020) & then the pandemic hit & 3 financial help bills, shutdowns, no travel , etc. cut into his ability to have hearings.

      I see no point in dragging every Republican in sight into a circular firing squad just because there are so many others who are verified as criminals.

      A few of the comments on this thread are over-the-top attacks that, like those on AG Barr, need no definitive evidence – which to me is the way the DementoRats do things. They sound like similar attacks on Jim Jordan that were so ridiculous they made me laugh out loud.

      Writing a letter that helps get information to the public is not the strongest thing a Senator can do, of course. But it’s a far sight better than the ones who don’t even do that.

      I put more stock in the commenters who say they have met Johnson in person and have a good opinion of him.

      It’s hard work, but the onus is on us as citizens to try to meet and learn about the local politicians up the chain, and make our own judgments on which ones are worth trusting.

Then they should be sued individually by any party that had to incur costs as a result of this investigation and also be liable for the unnecessary sullying of reputations of the subjects.

      manipulating this design feature then becomes an intentional bug.

      you can dissiminate specific class taskings but not reveal to the agent in that section anything beyond what you provide to them. thus leveraging compart and class clearance that conceals they are actually dealing with fraud orders…

      only a small group would know this…those that have access to the full legal fisa warrant and apllication and all of its limiting scope legal nomenclature…and also the in house “working copies” that have been doped up.

      i’ve only seem this level of corruption in one instance in my entire career (aide to a 3 star admiral)..witness in an art 32..

      so i know how it could be done.

      defense strategy was to explain these as training excercises that were bungled.

      then the arguments were made the mistakes were approved by the commanding officer in pursuit of a counter intel operation…a mole hunt.

      the latter won the court..we all knew it was a complete lie…but no one stepped forward…loved the old man apparently.

      we got him two years later with classmat on his personal computer and forced his retirement…censur letter…but allowed to retire with some dignity.

      the point is, the system can be abused….if the culture is fixed, even obvious evidence isnt helpful prosecution if people do not step forward and testify. its hard to press people to do the right thing when the culture sees itself serving some higher priority or priviledged duty.

      i would imagine the fbi has a certain culture that isnt going to be pressured to do the right thing….from within the walls bubbles and different worlds are created…it probably even seems like the best choice.

      for those on the fence…they understand the risks….they are grave to be sure

      From my experience with family & friends, they can only absorb so much at a time. And you have to remind them what they learned before.

    All bureaucracies have sets of institutionalized rules which, simply put, require insiders to protect their own. DOJ and the FBI are basically police aligned organizations and so exhibit the kind of extreme us/them attitude of most police departments that comes into effect when they close ranks to protect one of their own. The slow-walking, endless time-consuming “investigations”, “real soon now” promises that never quite produce anything, are all part of the show. Basically, all of the people involved—on all sides—are waiting to see how the election turns out. If Trump loses you’ll see all of this just disappear as though it never existed at all.

    AFTER the Mueller team illegally siezed PDJT’s private attorneys records, on the basis that said attorney had conspired with said attorney to commit a crime, which is the only basis under which such a siezure is lawful. Problem is, a “campaign finance violation” is NOT a crime.

    And, of coarse through intermediaries like Wolfe, the Special Council team were leaking material and innuendo like a sieve.

    Point being, by the point that the choir sang along with mitch, helen keller knew Mueller and his team were very DISHONORABLE, and their operation SHOULD have been shut down.

    And yet they were giving the Mueller team SUPPORT, to “keep going”. A “green light”.

            Understood. However, given what WE KNOW, and not even info in classified documents, but what we have observed with our own non-lieing eyes, concerning Republicon Congressional Leaderships actions, not just for the last 3 1/2 years undermining PDJT, but the previous 8 years of whitewashing the scandals of the Obamination, we need to face a moment of serious introspection.

            Wow, hows THAT for a ‘run – on sentence?

            Anyway, combine the Mamet principle, with the biblical saying about removing a splinter from your neighbors eye;

            We denigrate “libertards” (I do, too!) for not knowing, or REFUSING to acknowledge what they know.

            Seems to me WE have to remove the timber from our OWN eye, before we can turn to critisising THEM.

            To wit, if we look OBJECTIVELY and UNEMOTIONALLY at the conduct of RCL, the ONLY explanation is that they FULLY supported Obamination to “fundamentally transform America”, and had been for many YEARS.

            The Immigration system wasn’t “broken”, it was working EXACTLY as intended.

            RCL actually WANTED Obummercare.

            RCL wants to take away our guns.

            RCL wants every girl to get at least one abortion, even if the baby is crying when they kill it.

            RCL wants drag queens doing story hour in public libraries, and men in womens bathrooms.

            And the RCL was integral to planning and carrying out the ongoing coup attempt against PDJT, and is the power behind blocking any efforts at accountability for the small group, BECAUSE of their complicity, which if exposed would destroy them.

            THAT is the Big Ugly, IMHO.
            Expose that, and the,swamp is drained.

            Don’t expose that, and the swamp will continue to try to thwart PDJT for 4 more years, and will survive him and continue with its plan to “fundamentally transform America” into a 3 rd World Sh*thole, in order to remove it as an impediment to establishing a Conmunist new world order.
            I have been saying this for some time now, and “making the case”, by recounting ALL the things we have WATCHED the RCL do, not only for last 4 years, but previous 8 as well.

            Its a BITTER pill to swallow, but unless the 96% of RepubliCAN voters who support PDJT swallow this bitter pill, ultimately our movement will fail.

          I am not completely convinced that there was ever a concise plan. I believe there have been dishonest and corrupt people at all levels of our government for many many years. We know that the Clintons were corrupt. All those that came to DC with them were likely already corrupt. Using blackmail, bribes and underhanded actions to get ahead was BHO’s way to do things. (the Chicago way) So all that came to DC with him were also likely corrupt. Mueller when he was FBI Director restructured the entire FBI which caused many good FBI agents to resign. Those left learned to follow along or at least turn aside from obvious crimes.
          President Trump changed the status quo for those in Congress in both parties. Those corrupt really thought that Trump had to be corrupt, they were themselves, so they believed it would be easy to find that he was corrupt also. But they didn’t find anything.

          They had to fake it. The RINOs played along hoping that they would be able to vote for impeachment if something were found or if Pres. Trump fell for their trap and fired Mueller and thus obstruct justice. But he didn’t do that either.
          I believe that a great many of these corrupt players were all doing what they could to get rid of him but not everyone was in on what everyone else was doing. (like when the texts came out saying that one of their sister agencies were leaking or a newspaper was stating something the wrong way).
          They were all corrupt, they were all doing what they could to get President Trump out but I don’t believe everything was planned out. It seems like at times they were flying by the seat of their pants.

            “Impeachment, Watergate ‘model’. Appoint a SP to investigate, and get HIM to fire them, maybe even AG and Asst. AG, like Nixons Sat. Nite massacre.
            THAT will give “political cover” for REPUBLICONS in the Senate to say they will vote to convict, in order to force resignation.

            They can say “No one is above law, not even POTUS” and its Obstructiin of Justice for him to fire people investigating him.”

            O.k., but impeachment STARTS in the House, and Republican majority House can NOT be seen initiating Impeachment against a Republican POTUS!”

            SO, the House will HAVE to ‘flip’ to Democrat, or else ALL this illegality we are doing, is for naught!”

            The Dems could NOT guarantee the House would flip.
            The Obama admin could NOT guarantee the House would flip from Rep to Dem.

            ONLY the Repubs could make such an ironclad guarantee as the coupists would HAVE to have, before proceeding.

            Likewise, they would HAVE to be reassured that “if it all went South” that Senate would only confirm people who would insure the coupists would NOT be held accountable.

            Remember, Comey, McCabe, Brennan,…these are accomplished swamp rats, very adept at seeing to their own survival.

            They are not going to stick their neck out without assurances that only the RCL (Republican Cangressional Leadership) BEING INVOLVED, therefore having ‘skin in the game’ would give.

            In other words, hold any of the small group accountable, and they will rat.

            But, on WHO? FORMER Obama officials? They have limited power to effect things like who is PDJT’s AG. Ditto for Congressional Democrats.

            Only RCL can control appointments, as we saw with first Ratcliffe nomination; McConnell killed it.

            And, RCL could also deflect from any investigations, as Ryan did with Nunes, and Mitch did with transfering Chair to Lindsey to delay, never calling Weisman after House called Mueller, for instance.

            No, before Brennan, Comey and Clapper would sign off, they had to KNOW, with total assurance, that certain things were or would be in place, that ONLY RCL involvement could assure them of.

            Explain to me how else it could have happened.

            Complicit in illegally using Obamas IRS, to target the Tea party, which was no threat to Obama, but WAS a major threat to RCL.

            Complicit in walking high powered military grade weoponry accross the Southern border, which strengthened the cartels, increased the violence, which incrrased those who wanted to come North.

            It can NOT be explained as greed or ignorance, these are all excuses oft repeated, so we can NOT know, the things we know; the RCL is not JUST not our and PDJT’ s friend!

            THEY are our ENEMY, and are actively working as UNIPARTY (Two faces, one party) to undermine PDJT, his MAGA agenda, and US, and have been for many years BEFORE he descended on the escalator.

            And when the dust cleared, we said “WTF just HAPPENED?
            They walked guns to cartels/ISIS, they used IRS to hamstring tea party, and they SKATE???!”

      diidly – Wolfe threatened to take down all of the SSIC senators if he was charged with the leak (he knew their dirt). Therefore, Wolfe was only charged with lying (not leaking). The trap that caught Wolfe was the FBI agent picked up a copy of the FISA from the FISC and changed the date to 3/17. When the reporter ended up with the 3/17 FISA , bingo, they knew where it came from.

      The special counsel also did not want the SSIC leak to be known so they released the same 3/17 copy but redacted the date (Nobody has ever seen the unredacted true dated copy). There was coordination between the SSIC & the special counsel to cover the whole leak thing up – this is all to protect the dirty SSIC members. If special counsel had released a date different from the 3/17 date that would’ve raised some questions eh? (Why are there two different dates for the same document).

      Good questions, but how do you answer them when you can trust absolutely nothing. Sundance can ask a question, and maybe we can come up with an answer that matches what he thinks. But, I don’t think we have any absolute truth. For instance, how can we know if Go8 members were all briefed the exact same way on the exact same material? How can we know that the FISA document filed with the FISC matches up with any other copy of the FISA application held anywhere else within the internals of the system? I think Sundance said they felt they had to release a copy of the FISA that was leaked to the press, this one MAY match what was leaked, and it’s the copy filed with the FISC, so why not use that one?

      What we can see here is the complete corruption of the DOJ and the FBI. Some say it started long ago. But I feel like it got much worse during the Obama administration. Read the Stanley Kurtz book about Obama, then imagine him systematically replacing DOJ and FBI people at all levels, as far down as he could, for 8 years. There have been many posts here from either former FBI people, and people who know them personally that say the old, upstanding FBI people were systematically purged. Obama put “political officers” within and above ALL federal departments (meaning like the old USSR putting Politburo people everywhere parallel to people who did any real expert work). The same could be said of State department, which is intertwined with the CIA (like most state department people stationed are really also CIA). The Pentagon. You can go on and on.

      Eight years.

      Imagine what it would be like had Hillary won – eight MORE years. By someone just as radical as Obama, and also a true Alinsky follower.

      If you factor in the theory of the Decepticons, and watched the Flynn hearing that just took place, and the actions of the supreme court and all the radical district judges, which branch of Government has not been corrupted?

      Thus, Sundance’s call for We the People to wake up, hold all of these people accountable, and take action, whatever we are capable of.

      I have faith in We the People. After all, we did elect Donald Trump.

      C2C gave a good answer…

      I’d add this for clarity
      Mueller had to release the version THE MEDIA ALREADY HAD from a year ago.

      Once released the MSM could simply claim: “We got it from the FOIA”

      Similar to the reason they got the Carter Page FISA…
      to “explain” the surveillance THEY ALREADY HAD.

    Where is the beef?

    Plausible Deniability is the rubber stamp on all of this as nothing of substance proves this Russian Scam was a script / screen play written, produced, and acted by Oballah, Hildebeast, DNC, and Team Muller, as an elaborate attempt to deceive the courts, intelligence community, and the public, all to bring down a duly elected president without being tried for the Treason it is.

    It’s going to take much more to prove this is real life criminal version of “The Truman Show” with Jim ‘Burbank’ Carrey whom finds out his life is an artificial world manufactured by a sick Deep State selling their deception to a paying audience for ratings and profit.

      From what I understand the point of using RICO statues helps with this issue. It takes the burden off of having to build the entire case against each individual and allows for the connection of “roles” played, and the ability for juries/judges to look at the “bigger picture” and end result.

      Perhaps I have that wrong. Please correct me anyone if so. IANAW.

    Maybe I’ve missed it somewhere, but who within the FBI authorized SSA Dugan to investigate the Wolfe/SSCI leaks?

    Was that done to cover or expose the coup?

      Raised in Reagan — I have a very similar question. Presumably, Jeff Sessions authorized Brian Dugan to investigate SSCI for leaks, presumably/perhaps because an earlier known leaks (eg, classified material appearing in the news) implicated SSCI as possible culprits. Once the leak investigation was authorized, targeting SSCI would only have required adequate predication which may have been abundant.

      But your question does raise the issue of how they kept it secret within the Bureau (who was Dugan reporting to, since presumably neither Comey nor anyone else on the 7th floor knew what was going on until Wolfe was already snagged).

      My question is: how did Dugan transmit the FISA court FISA App to Wolfe without raising a bunch of red flags? You’d have to assume that Wolfe/SSCI were savvy to chains of custody and the provenance of documents. You’d have to assume they’d no when a doc they received was “safe” to leak.

      Wolfe leaked the FISA App so quickly, it seems he felt totally safe doing so. And yet, it technically came from an investigator from the Washington Field Office, obtained from the FISA Court (rather than NSD/DOJ). Why wasn’t FISA Court stamp a red flag? How did Dugan arrange for the application to reach Wolfe without hitting a tripwire for Wolfe to proceed with caution?

      Maybe there are easy answers here. Curious to know.

        Newhere- I believe Dugan walked a hard copy over, not as “investigator,” but as courier. He clearly was in a position with proper clearance to do this work without raising red flags.

        FISA Court stamp was likely expected. SSCI probably requested a copy of the Page FISA Warrant submitted to FISC for whatever reason.

        What SSCI didn’t know was that Dugan was more than a courier. Everything went exactly as expected by Wolfe, which was why he had no reservations about leaking so quickly.

    I don’t know what sort of relationship you have with Spiropoulos (boy that’s hard to spell), but if you can get him to add the poisoned fruit aspect to that report, wow. Or maybe explain the FBI’s whitewashing of Danchenko’s interview with the FISC, and the poisoned fruit aspect in a separate report. That would be time extremely well spent.

    Getting folks to clearly understand why the FBI lied to the FISC is key here, I think. To understande what it would cost the SCO if the fruit became poisonous.

    The utter gall implicit in the FBI’s declaration to the FISC that Danchenko was truthfull has the potential to really get folks ticked off. Spiropoulos seems like a guy who could deliver that in just the right way in a short video.

      wx- better yet, if Barr would hurry up and finish his report to FISC regarding the downstream effects of the fraudulent FISA’s as per their request…AND…make it public, the people could see first-hand the corruption. If anyone has even prosecuted on that information overturn their conviction. That should be big news.

      Problem is that NOBODY in DC is willing to do anything that sheds a bad light on FISA abuse because it is “critical for national security.” Sure we have the Collyer report, sure Rand Paul mentions it every so often, but nobody makes a big deal out of the FISA abuse.

      If the public was ever shown what spying was actually taking place and by whom, they would be outraged. But, so far, it seems our DC masters know what’s best.

  40. I’m not the smartest guy in the room, but here goes. Someone help me understand this and please point out where I’m off track.

    I remember Nunes stating specifically and numerous times that “The Insurance Policy” was that part of the FISA warrant that we didn’t know about besides the Steele Dossier. I went back and watched his interviews again and again to make I was hearing him correctly. So far, unless I’ve missed it, the Dugan leak trap warrant only shows the Dossier.

    Now here is where my thinking may be off base. Or not. The only warrant we have ever seen in its entirety is the Dugan version that was used as the leak trap. What if the original warrant is something completely different? What if the original warrant contained not only the Steele Dossier, but also the “insurance policy” that Nunes has described as being far more explosive, his words not mine,

    What if the real reason that the Dugan warrant was released was to bury the real warrant? What is so explosive, according to Nunes, that it required layers upon layers of deception?

    Go back a couples years ago and review all the interviews of Nunes by Maria Bartiromo and others where he goes into describing the FISA warrant. Because it sure doesn’t resemble the Dugan leak trap copy that we’ve seen.

      That would kinda make more sense to me as far the SSIC leak. I mean, the FBI agent Dugan hand carries the FISA from the court (alters date) delivers it to the SSIC and the SSIC leaks it at their first opportunity. I’ve always wondered did Wolfe leak this as a rogue action? Why risk your career? Why cover that up?

      The other option is someone TOLD Wolfe to leak it (likely Warner) But why? Your theory makes sense of this. Remember, Wolfe threatened to bring all the SSIC members into any lawsuits he faced if he was charged with leaking. That’s his dirt on them, they told him to leak it. They wanted that 3/17 copy to be the only one we see (and it has been). But why? Is it an extend version of the FISA that has provable falsehoods even more incriminating to the FBI? You can see why they want to cover the whole Wolfe leak mess up. Can of worms.

        In a previous thread one member of the treehouse suggests they leaked it purposefully so Wolfe could only be charged with leaking non-classified material. His role and full crimes were not shared with the grand jury, which left them with one option for the lesser charge (and tiny jail sentence). This was the deal they made to keep him from telling his dirt on everyone.

          I don’t think so because what Wofle leaked, probably on order of Warner, was classified and was set up as a trap. Agent Dugan was working a leak investigation. Warner, through Wolfe, wanted the info leaked so that President Trump could be slimed in the media through media reports. The SC and Warner (and others probably) had to quickly backpedal to keep Wolfe from letting secrets out if he was charged with leaking classified material.

    I don’t have a photographic memory or a 150+IQ, but I do remember:
    Hidden for 30 months!!! The Judicial Watch (06/10/2019) disclosure, State Dept. Kathleen Kavalec email (10/13/2016) to FIB Special Agent Stephen Laycock, that was forwarded on to the Small Group FIB Special Agent Peter Strzok. That email questioned the accuracy of the Steele Dossier Information. Remember the Russian Consulate in Miami (garbage) managing a team of hackers to targeting the 2016 election. There was no Russian Consulate in Miami.

    Or, Michael Cohen secretly met with Kremlin officials in Prague where he arranged “deniable cash payments” to the hackers. That was disproved the same day the Dossier was released by BuzzFeed News on January 10, 2017. That surely gave the FIB and later the Mueller team some concern as to the accuracy of the Steele Dossier? The first FISA renewal was January 12th 2017!

    Or, Steele was fired by the FBI for unauthorized media contacts in 11/ 2016 and was hidden until February 2018? Any disclosure in any FISA renewals?

    Or, Bruce Ohr acting as a cut-out between Steele and FBI Strzok was hidden until 08/2019? From a FBI 302, from Nov. 22, 2016 Ohr was passing on that Steele “was desperate that Donald Trump not get elected and was passionate about him not becoming the U.S. president.” Data was available before the first renewal and hidden for almost 2 years!

    So, any surprise that these “Primary Sub-source” FIB Reports were hidden for 34 months? The only surprise is that the FIB ever released them! Why do we keep proving the same point over and over and over? They are a corrupt TODAY as they were in July 2016!!!

    Some 80 years ago Joy Davidman, a Jewish American, eagerly joined the American Communist Party. She was intellectually sharp, so when she read the main Communist writings and looked at their lives, she saw many contradictions and errors. She was later married to C S Lewis for a few years before her death. Her story gives a peek into a forgotten American era and exposes how shallow many of today’s young American are and ignorant of communism.

    The videos “Draw My Life – Joy Lewis, Jewish-American Writer” (Part 1 and 2) are brilliantly illustrated with doodles. They are easily accessible online. They may be helpful in seeking to expose the present foolishness and ignorance of many.

    Danchenko is approached by Steele in MARCH 2016 ( 2 months before DNC employ Steele) to find dirt on Manafort.
    Steele HAS NOTHING on anyone in MARCH 2016 but employs Danchenko (who lives in Washington, has arrestfor drunkeness, is broke and a grifter) to start opp research on Trump.
    Who was paying Steele at this time ? Who was funding 2 months prior to DNC funding ?

      Steele was used. They had already been using the NSA database to spy, and just like the FISA, they needed Steele to be that source of info, and not their own spying.

  48. Given the fact that Admiral Rogers and Judge Collyer clearly knew that the NSA database was being used by the Obama Administration to electronically surveil candidate Trump, and given the fact that they controlled access to the NSA database, how was it possible that they permitted continued access to the NSA database through the Carter Page application and renewals? If Rogers could audit FBI subcontractors use from November 2015 through April 2016, he could monitor FBI access in real time through the Page application and renewals. In fact, he could have asked the FISA court to shut down that access. If you are aware of the NSA database being accessed for political opposition research in one context, are you not especially sensitive to the same type of abuse in another?

    Rogers knows conclusively whether the 702 searches conducted under the authority of the Page original and renewal applications surveilled candidate, President-elect and President Trump, yet there is no public record of his ever debunking or confirming the conducting of such surveillance to Congress, let alone the American people. If he told Horowitz, there is nothing in the December 2019 IG report to debunk or confirm such surveillance. How difficult would it be to simply say that on such and such date, under the authority of the FISA court, the FBI accessed President Trump’s electronic financial information or cell phone usage or GPS information or emails as part of its Title I “two hop” surveillance? Or to simply say that the results of not a single 702 query included any electronic information unique to President Trump? The fact that the IG report never makes the latter statement, when the actuality and propriety of spying on the President is the entire point of the investigation, is all you need to know to confirm the coverup. The IG never tells you that the President was not the target of actual, verified 702 electronic surveillance because he was. And if the President can be the subject of such surveillance by ostensible executive branch subordinates without his knowledge, then any American citizen can be the target of such abuse of power. That’s what they don’t want the American people to know.

    As one final aside, one would think the Secret Service would be concerned with ongoing electronic surveillance of the President of the United States. One way to check this type of abuse would be to require that any 702 surveillance of the President, his family or his immediate staff be disclosed to and monitored by the Secret Service.

      : Also: the thing I think is missing is how an opposition research becomes fisa APPLICATION (FBI equity (could also be equity after acquired from fisc which has to APPROVE the warrant))).

      I don’t think that just happens.

      I don’t think you call up gps and say ” hey , get me dirt on my opponent ”

      And then months later it’s a FISA warrant and no paper will print it.

      I don’t think that just happens by happenstance (like STROZK calls me and says “hey that op-o research you can’t print … can I use it for a FISA … ? Pretty please ?)
