Remarkable, and Revealing, Interview With SSCI Chairman Marco Rubio…

Senator Marco Rubio appears on Fox News with Maria Bartiromo to discuss a variety of issues and subjects from the 2020 election to the current policies toward China and social media surveillance.

However, at the mid-point of the interview Bartiromo asks the SSCI Chairman about the committee refusal to provide Senators Grassley and Johnson with documents and transcripts from testimony previously given to the SSCI in their Russia investigation.

While explaining the reason for the refusal to share transcripts, Senator Rubio shares that all prior testimony to the committee was provided with the expressed agreement that none of the witness testimony would be shared with anyone else. A remarkably self-serving construct with the deliberate outcome of allowing strategic leaks and narrative assembly without sunlight on the actual questioning.

.

An additionally revealing aspect from this Rubio segment is the statement that Chairman Burr and Vice-Chair Warner have constructed committee rules that both parties must be in agreement with any process within the committee – before any action is taken. This is a key facet when we consider that Senator Warner made covert contact with Chris Steele’s lawyer Adam Waldman in 2017.

If the SSCI chair and vice-chair must be in agreement on any investigative path, then Richard Burr and Mark Warner both knew of the effort to contact Steele in 2017. Additionally, and further to the bipartisan attempts against the office of the President, this would imply that Warner and Burr both agreed to the request to review the Carter Page FISA application on March 17th, 2017.

In the background of Rubio’s remarks there appears to be a disconnect about his knowledge of the activity of the SSCI and their involvement in the corrupt effort to remove President Trump. Rubio positions himself as unaware… it is a rather disingenuous position.

Back on March 17, 2017, the SSCI secretly received the FISA application used on Carter Page from FBI supervisory special agent Brian Dugan (Washington Field Office). The ‘review and return’ application was delivered to Senate Security Director James Wolfe, who then placed it in the Senate SCIF to be reviewed by Vice-Chairman Mark Warner (and possibly Chairman Richard Burr). It appears no other senators were informed of this production.

James Wolfe then leaked the content of the FISA application and first renewal to reporter Ali Watkins. All indications are that Wolfe leaked the application to Watkins as directed by Warner, possibly with Burr’s full knowledge.

FBI Agent Brian Dugan then completed a nine-month leak investigation resulting in James Wolfe admitting to the leak. The leak was Dugan’s FBI equity. Due to the severity of the leak; and specifically because the leak encompassed the FISA application; in/around mid-January 2018 the special counsel in Main Justice was notified of Dugan’s findings and the investigative file was shared with the Weissmann team.

The Weissman special counsel team then took apart the investigative file and began running cover for the corrupt background story that included the participation by Senator Mark Warner. Part of that file surfaced when the text messages between Warner and Chris Steele’s lawyer Adam Waldman were made public on Feb 9, 2018.

In a pre-planned operation, as soon as the explosive Warner/Waldman texts were released Senator Marco Rubio rushed to the microphones to fraudulently state that Warner had informed the committee during his early spring (2017) contacts with Waldman and Chris Steele. This claim by Rubio was a lie. Rubio appeared to be running cover for Warner as part of his own affiliation with the origin of the Fusion-GPS opposition research and the subsequent transfer of information to the Clinton campaign and ultimately through Chris Steele to the corrupt FBI investigative unit. [Later to the Weissmann/Mueller crew]

Rubio’s motive to downplay the ramifications of the Warner effort, and the subsequent Wolfe leak, directly ties to his own involvement with the Fusion-GPS effort. Remember, at the time of this obfuscation (late ’17 and early ’18) no-one yet knew the Fusion-GPS fraudulent story (which became the Steele dossier) was originally funded by the Super-PAC funding the Rubio campaign.

Go look at when the Weissmann/Mueller special counsel deleted their iPhone records and history. The scrubbing took place mid-January 2018 as soon as they realized the previously unknown leak investigation by Washington Field Office FBI agent Brian Dugan had bumped into the special counsel operation that was coordinating with the SSCI.

The special counsel warned Warner; took action to remove specific evidence assembled by Dugan (which included the Warner/Waldman text messages); created a fictitious cover story for the SSCI to use; extracted the Dugan version of the FISA application he used to catch Wolfe (which they later released under the guise of FOIA); then sent a deconstructed (now useless) investigative file back to DC USAO Jessie Liu who had nothing left except to present a DC grand jury with James Wolfe lying to investigators.

That corrupt, unlawful and coordinated cover-up effort lies at the heart of why the SSCI will not share any information with GOP senators today.

Senators Johnson and Grassley were asking for the FISA application in 2018, not knowing the original and first renewal were previously provided to the SSCI on March 17, 2017.

When congress (House Intel, House Judiciary, Senate Judiciary and Senate Homeland Security) were writing to FISA Court presiding judge Rosemary Collyer seeking a copy of the FISA application from the court they had no idea one early copy was already provided to the Senate Intelligence Committee. Chairman Burr and Vice-Chair Warner kept their review and use secret; but the information about their reception came out because James Wolfe leaked it and FBI agent Brian Dugan was awaiting that leak.

FISA Judge Rosemary Collyer never told any of the chairmen about the March 2017 copy of the application that was provided to Brian Dugan to deliver to the SSCI.

Throughout the attempt to remove President Trump from office, which included the impeachment effort, the SSCI was participating and assisting; now they are in cover-up mode. That’s the reason why Mitch McConnell put Marco Rubio in charge of that committee.

There’s a reason why senior staff from Senator Ron Johnson’s committee and senior staff from Chuck Grassley’s committee are asking for SSCI documents. It might not come out before the election, but it will come out…

.

As we have previously mentioned, the two-year Weissmann/Mueller special counsel, May 2017 through April 2019, was a continuum of the corrupt DOJ and FBI efforts that originated prior to the 2016 election. Many of the internal FBI and DOJ officials just transferred from the Clinton email investigation, into the Crossfire Hurricane investigation, and then into the Weissmann/Mueller special counsel investigation.

The corrupt activity within the special counsel tenure was actually worse than the corrupt activity that preceded it.

Newly released records [SEE HERE] from a FOIA show the Weissmann/Mueller special counsel team “accidentally” wiped at least 27 iPhones of data early in 2018.  Curiously timed at the same time the special counsel was attempting to cover for their coordination with the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence and Vice-Chairman Mark Warner.

    The Trump presidency has predictably turned itself into a reformation of conservative values. This has had the effect of increasingly isolating elected republicans with UniParty loyalties. One DC tradition that still holds true is that once you get bought, you’re expected to stay bought. Some of these guys were able to appear to be conservative while simultaneously maintaining a discrete (and lucrative) loyalty to the UniParty and it donor-class pay-offs. Maria is a take-no-prisoners questioner. It was interesting watching Rubio get increasingly uncomfortable as he tried to dance around the obvious fact that his committee ain’t doin’ nuffin’.

    The interesting part of this article is the single bit of information not previously discussed.

    “..Senator Rubio shares that all prior testimony to the committee was provided with the expressed agreement that none of the witness testimony would be shared with anyone else.”

    How is this legal? Especially if evidence of crime, administrative wrong doing, violations of basic rights or violation(s) of US Government procedural processes is exposed as part of the testimony. This is not the same as offering a form of legal immunity for testimony. This is outright pre-planned obstruction.

    2 remedies exist:
    1. Senate rule by Shanghai Mitch.

Move beyond the “rule” to the “application” of the rule, which has to comply with law and proper execution of administrative process.

            Again, there has to be a willing Senate Leader and AG to get the information. Use of these rules to hide evidence is still pre-planned obstruction no matter how legal the rule itself may be.

      but BEFORE HE DOES THAT, he will make the rounds and open the book to a few certain people…about 46 of them in congress. And he will THEN leverage this to achieve certain goals

      A. restoration and expansion of ALL former spy powers.

      B. Congressional sanctions and media blitz to further persecute ASSANGE…making him AGAIN public enemy number 1. Barr will do this to get political heavy weights to authorize extradition of ASSANGE to us. Barr cannot have assange as a free man. he knows too much… facts that jeopardize the entire russia Russia narrative.

      C. he will do these things because his goals are to make it politically impossible for Trump to fire him. that’s the reason he exists…to provide a service for the deep dark state…which would otherwise be in zero hope of avoiding serious consequences.

      he sees.himself serving some.higher loyalty…not of rule of law nor justice but as a battle medic rushing into triage to save what can be saved. . rule of law and justice are not his.priorities.

      he IS just as CORRUPT as Comey Mueller rosenstein lynch and holder… perhaps more so given the evidence is provable and intent is clear…

        Before Maria’s Interview with Sen.Marco Rubio did we know there was an agreement between Sen.Richard Burr (R)? And Sen. Warner (D) (phony Steele dossier proponent)? Did we know they promised to shield all who testified from other Senate inquiries? Did you know before today that Chairman Marco Rubio is also protecting possibly incriminating info from reaching other Senate committees.
        Did we know before today that the Rubio/Warner SSCI is placing all the blame on the FBI for the Steele Dossier Russia hoax?
        I thought Maria did a good job and Marco seemed to be filibustering her uncomfortable questions.

      It’s always the semi close near miss, well scripted and we’ll rehearsed to provide her guests with that thin plausible vail of … Well maybe.

    Since all information belongs to the people because it’s the peoples tax dollars that garner that info and bankroll the entire system, perhaps it would be fitting that those who refuse to hand over information are no longer deserving of a taxpayer funded paycheck, and that pay should be stopped

    One background tidbit Sundance left off. Rubio has allegedly been on thin financial footing for a while.

    Decades ago when Ross Perot ran for President, a friend remarked to me: “I like that we could have a Senator or POTUS who can’t be bought off with a free trip to Jamaica or a weekend golfing trip.”

    Rubio also has r children in private school and his wife was making $54,000 a year… working for a major political supporter. A charity which only donated hundreds of dollars. (Shady?)

    How hard is it for Barr or Durham to simply read SSA Dugan surveillance report or just question SSA Dugan or pull the emails and texts of the people he was surveilling.

    Why is it Barr and Durham can’t seem to…….

    1) depose Julian Assange
    2) depose the NYPD cops who saw what was on the Wiener Laptop
    3) talk to SSA Dugan
    4) talk to registered WB Montgomery about the Hammer Spying
    5) do a full audit of the NSA Contractor Spying to see how long and extensive the spying on Americans went on for and who ordered it.
    6) simply look in the CIA/FBI database to see that Mifsud and Halper were always western agents
    7) look into the FBI database to see if indeed the FBI investigated into the Seth Rich murder

    I’m just Joe Average American Patriot but these 7 things to me are so obvious and are musts to the point that anyone investigator worth their salt would have already been all over these.

      Barr and Durham know the score. They’re just cleaning up the mess from Mueller’s posse. and the Congressional Democrats and trying to keep a lid on everything. They’re fixers, nothing more.

    … and how you point how Rubio is exposing their own coup by mentioning the rules they have…

    “An additionally revealing aspect from this Rubio segment is the statement that Chairman Burr and Vice-Chair Warner have constructed committee rules that both parties must be in agreement with any process within the committee – before any action is taken. This is a key facet when we consider that Senator Warner made covert contact with Chris Steele’s lawyer Adam Waldman in 2017.”

    I post this image- just to give people the VISUAL of the Plan to keep the Republican Clean..

    but as pointed out in this article – Rubio’s may be self serving – since his PAC is where the “proto dossier’s orginated”?

    Thanks to Sundance and a few others, what is on display for us is the equivalent of; a dead body with a bullet wound, a smoking gun… in the powder-burned hand of a person standing over said dead body. And yet, here we are. With motive, means, opportunity in hand… we have a massive political hate crime. Back to the analogy if I may… we have the cops, the victim’s family, the perpetrator’s family, and the prosecutor ignoring the crime.

    Sorry folks… I’m as optimistic as the next guy, but show’s over. There is no way to turn this ship around with the crew that’s on board AND the voters who put them there. It is not repairable. Trump has done yeoman service to lay bare all that goes on, all the while being the target of some (I wouldn’t even say most) of the corruption and two-tiered justice that is new ingrained into our system. We’re only bitching about the stuff that we know…. certainly there have been better actors than the incompetent fools (Comey, Brennan, et al) that while in complete command, still managed to botch things so badly as to get “caught”… not that caught means anything anymore.

    The only leverage we can have as patriots is an alternative to what we now have. I don’t mean the hyperbolic threats of “hang them for treason” or bitch-slap the snowflakes into submission….. we need a path to LEAVE the ruinous scum behind. Call it secession or whatever, but I don’t want these losers as part of my life any longer. Some would say, if you don’t like it… leave. Fine… but why ME? I’m the one who wants to abide by the rules of this place…. seems like the other side should be separated or evicted.

    There’s nothing left to win folks. Look around. We’ve crossed any red line long ago. I’m sad, I’m angry… we deserve better.

              I agree… and the thought of being a whiner is worse than being a loser. I think my “whining” is not about giving up the fight… it’s the desire to make it a different war. The Left has poisoned the well as it were. Our system was never perfect and never would be, but it’s the best that has been done so far and the left has infested it so thoroughly, I don’t see a way back under the current parameters. I just wish I could take people like you and logboom (and yes, I know what one of those IS!) the rest of the Treehouse and form our own more perfect union and I guess that leads down some sort of secession path… I don’t know.

              We are steadfast and elect the best choices we are given, and they surrender. Whining doesn’t get us anywhere, but how does waging the current fight get us anywhere either? When we lose, we lose, when win… we surrender.

      I think Brennan has been the manager of all this the whole time at the direction of Valerie Jarrett, Ozero’s handler. Everything we know so far has pointed to this being the case since at least 2015. A deeper look would reveal files about any enemy or ally they wish to exert influence over in any future event. I think Ozero’s administration started building this database shortly after his 2009 “election” and continued through his minions even after PDJT was inaugurated.
