Proactive Distancing – The Special Counsel Operation…

With the Clinesmith criminal information at the forefront, a reminder about the Special Counsel motives.  Again, it is important to remember the special counsel had the agenda and responsibility to carry on the resistance operation…. that was their sole function.

As a result, this is just a short article on a singular footnote within the Weissmann/Mueller Report that looks completely different in hindsight.

Kevin Clinesmith was the lead FBI lawyer during the counterintelligence operation called Crossfire Hurricane; origination date July 31st 2016. When Robert Mueller was appointed as Special Counsel (May ’17) he took over the Crossfire Hurricane investigation, adding additional DOJ lawyers to staff but retaining the FBI team which included Peter Strzok and Kevin Clinesmith.

When Kevin Clinesmith manipulated the CIA email to gain the third renewal for the Carter Page FISA (June 29, 2017) he was working on behalf of the Mueller investigation.

Clinesmith was removed from the special counsel team in February 2018 after his biased texts were identified by the inspector general. Clinesmith resigned in/around September 2019 “after the inspector general’s team interviewed him.” (link) Not coincidentally that Sept ’19 exit timeline aligns with the first notification to FISC Judge Collyer. (link)

Obviously, special counsel Robert Mueller would know the issues regarding Clinesmith prior to removing him in February 2018; and well in advance of his report published in March 2019.

Now… take a look at footnote #1, of page 13 from Mueller’s report:

From fn 1:

“¹FBI personnel assigned to the Special Counsel’s Office were required to adhere to all applicable federal law and all Department and FBI regulations, guidelines, and policies.”

An FBI attorney worked on FBI-related matters for the Office, such as FBI compliance with all FBI policies and procedures, including the FBI’s Domestic Investigations and Operations Guide (DOIG). That FBI attorney worked under FBI legal supervision, not the Special Counsel’s supervision.”

Tell me that isn’t a big flashing CYA footnote from the Special Counsel – going out of their way to proactively state that FBI attorney Kevin Clinesmith worked under FBI legal supervision, not the Special Counsel’s supervision?

It seems clear in hindsight that Weissmann and Mueller knew the FBI misconduct that was likely to surface, as it has; so they made sure to position blame on FBI Director Chris Wray and FBI Legal Counsel Dana Boente back in March 2019.

      Weissman was one of the chief enablers and catalysts of the seditious plot to overthrow a duly elected President. He needs to be put in the hottest with his marionet Mueller. That’s the way to get the top guys of the criminal conspiracy, namely BHO, Biden, Brennan, Clapper, et al.

      I don’t think a guy like Weissmann will ever feel boxed in unless and until they slam the jail door shut in his face. He has committed documented, egregious, misconduct during numerous of his overreaching criminal prosecutions that damaged the lives of innocent people. He has never faced any professional consequences that I’m aware of. He and his plugged-in spouse believe they are among the Untouchables in Washington and so far they’re right. Bruce Ohr’s testimony in the House implicates Weissmann as one who knew exactly what the mission was very early in the game. If Ohr testifies he can devastate the narrative being nursed along that veteran FBI agents and prosecutors actually believed a word of Steele’s farcical dossier. They didn’t and it is a absurd collective deception being perpetrated that people like Yates, Comey, McCabe, Weissman, or a FISA judge at anytime gave credence to Steele’s text, which contains no actionable law enforcement information and is outlandish on it’s face. The phalanx of defense lawyers (assisted by numerous senators) stonewalling with wave after wave of bs trying to compartmentalize and minimize the conduct and reduce it to tiny technical mistakes should not cloud the big picture – which is they all knew the purpose of Steele’s dossier, that it was a fraud (what else could it be to any rational person?) and nonetheless used it to obtain a search warrant on an American citizen. Conspiracy, obstruction of justice, violation of civil rights, etc. I don’t like politicized prosecutions, and with the likely partisan attitudes jurors in DC, trials would likely be a circus like Stone’s. But I think the alternative of not prosecuting and letting the bs stand is terrible for the country and rule of law.

        You are so right about Weissmann never “feeling boxed in until they slam the jail door shut in his face” and also about, all the corruption that he has been involved in for so many years. He must have so much dirt on so many others that he believes, like you said, that he cannot be touched…but Jeffrey Epstein thought that also and look how he ended up!

      /Flynn’s confessed lies not a crime/

      Moscow Trials

      WEISSMANN: At the time, many Western observers who attended the trials said that they were fair and that the guilt of the accused had been established. They based this assessment on the confessions of the accused, which were freely given in open court, without any apparent evidence that they had been extracted by torture or drugging.

      HOW THEY WERE NOT A CRIME: Kamenev and Zinoviev agreed to confess on condition that they receive a direct guarantee from the entire Politburo that their lives and those of their families and followers would be spared. When they were taken to the supposed Politburo meeting, they were met by only Stalin and Kliment Voroshilov. Stalin explained that they were the “commission” authorized by the Politburo, and Stalin agreed to their conditions in order to gain their desired confessions. After that the future defendants were given some medical treatment and food.

          This is a “fine line” issue.
          When Flynn was interviewed by the FBI at the beginning, the FBI notes indicate that they believed Flynn to be telling the truth. And they were prepared to close the file on him, but the next day! in that famous meeting with Sally Yates, Obama, Biden & I believe either Susan Rice or Loretta Lynch, and Comey, that is when they decided to NOT close the file, That is why the Logan act was brought up at the meeting b/c they had nothing on Flynn, but they needed him shut down. He was a Code Red serious threat to all of them & the Intelligence Agencies.
          What they did after that was threaten him to admit to lying by threatening his son (who had a newborn at home).
          They didn’t have to have anything worthy of more than a hand slap on his son, or nothing at all but the threat of ruining his son’s life was real. And Flynn understood the intensity of what they were bringing here and he knew their motive.
          He knew that these were very desperate and dangerous people, so he protected his son.
          To sum up, he did not lie about anything to do with his actions with Russia. Not lied. He did lie when he said he lied.
          Andrew Weissman is a snake and another desperate man who was on a Spinning mission.

      these corruptors most certainly did not put much effort in covering their arses.

      dont confuse a 8000 person plus coordinated conspiracy with interligrnt design.

      they placed ALL of their strategies on a single point failure…

      that trump would not win..or that they could force it after he oathed in.

      in fact, the ONLY THING THEY MANAGED TO ACCOMPLISH WAS TO ASSERT CLASSIFICATION FIREWALLS for as long as they WERE ALLOWED TO DO SO.

      I give them props for that.

      and of course narrating through the media in a very impressive and effective messaging psyops program

      but even those had wide open holes and raised red and black flags to even the casual observer.

      THEY OVERSOLD ALL OF IT.

      thats very stupid…

      if you want to coup…subtely wins and is sustainable.

      between the toxic over the top ridiculous claims and the lack of solid opsec and not truly estimating properly the risks of launching a massive just in time scaled up coup…without the violence and force to back it up…they attempted to achieve IN THIS COUNTRY, THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA what they could only have ever accomplished in some back water 4th world dirt land.

      in a nutshell, the arrogance and lack of intelligence and patience doomed their plans…

      one does not simply coup a president and deliver success in this manner.

      you do THAT by stealing the election the way its always been done..

      you corrupt the actual votes.

      ahem…pay attention patriots…

      dont get comfortable as you are directing all,of,your energy and resources and attention about getting justice Heaped on these corruptors.

      theyve been very busy…and they have learned how to do it…and they WILL be cheating this election.

      they have all of the means to accomplish this now.

      that spying apparatus that was criminally,weaponized?

      it still exists…the resources have shifted..the focus is in steering the election and votes to a predetermined outcome.

      you will need to develop and distribute a meaningful effective radical plan to preempt this from happening..you will need to describe to everyone you know how to vote in order to prevent this operation from stealing your votes.

      this needs to be the highest priority right now.

      im working on exposing the corruption now so that we are not in another situation, four years later wondering went wrong and who should hang for it.

      i do not have all the answers…you will need to build a contingency plan…and soon.

The key to breaking it all wide open will be to get testimony about who said what that set all the underhanded acts and falsehoods in motion, and what the ‘plan’ was to cover their tracks both during and after the dirty deeds. As much as the left will try to obfuscate and claim the deeds and actions of the players were independent of each other, getting hands on the communications between them that cumulatively whisper ‘conspiracy’ will be the tickets to their doom. Does SD hold some of these communications? Time will tell if my speculations are more than just that.

          This response is to Whiteboard. Defund the Police= Not what you wrote. I’ve written about this Defund the Police movement on here before. Read a book(pamphlet 68 pages) titled CIA Manual For Psychological Operations In Guerrilla Warfare.

          This pamphlet was written for Contras in Central America who were fighting the Socialist Nicaraguan Sandinistas. The CIA was instructing the Contras how to beat the Sandinistas.

          One of the ways to do that was the delegitimization of local police forces. The CIA is now using a 40 year old playbook to overthrow a government in South America here in the United States.

    “Information gathering”? This is NPR’s euphemism for deliberately altering documents submitted to the FISA court. The level of dishonesty in reporting the offense this way is staggering. Goebbels would be impressed!
    Just in: FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith plans to plead guilty to charges related to information-gathering involving the Trump campaign and Russia four years ago, according to his lawyer. It’s the first criminal charges associated with how the Russian investigation was conducted.

      The Cabal knew that Page was an “intelligence asset” long before the FISA warrants. He was used because he was a convenient patsy. The warrants and the changed email were part of the required cover-up; after Trump won. They had to hide the spying that had been going on for years. Flynn found out the NSA misuse and had to be taken out and/or silenced.

      It’s not logically valid, though.

      Flynn was coerced into pleading guilty to something the FBI didn’t even say he did initially. Still missing that 302, I think. Then to get the plea from Flynn, they coerced him by threatening his family. Further, they don’t even have evidence of intent on Flynn, allowing that he misspoke while casually taking FBI personnel on a tour of the WH. Comey even bragged about being sneaky about that.

      Completely different from a lawyer caught in the act of knowingly changing the email of another person 180 degrees for the purpose of violating their Constitutional rights.

      “Whataboutism”, which is a junk phrase altogether, has nothing to do with Flynn and Clinesmith.

      What about Comey lying?
      What about McCabe lying?
      What about Stzrok lying?

    As we know, well before the first FISA warrant on Carter Page was signed, he worked for the FBI and CIA. And, based on this Comey and Brennan. effectively signed a confession when putting their signatures on the Carter Page, FISA warrant. in October of 2016

    Sundance writes:
    “It seems clear in hindsight that Weissmann and Mueller knew the FBI misconduct that was likely to surface, as it has; so they made sure to position blame on FBI Director Chris Wray and FBI Legal Counsel Dana Boente back in March 2019.”

    Proactive Distancing – By Omission
    Which brings me to my point. The FBI was very careful in covering their tracks, sometimes. So what are we seeing. When we look at the FISA document below. We can see that Comey signed the FISA document, but Brennan did not and the same can be said for Rice. Where are their signatures? Are they still hidden. Each signature is a signed confession. Find them.

      It is a very usual pattern in legal to have each signatory’s executed signature block to be on a separate page, because each person might be faxing their version in separately. All signatures don’t have to be on the same page.

      You need to look at the document in its entirety to find the other signature pages perhaps. Nothing can be determined without review of the final executed document, all pages of it.
