FBI Lovebirds Is A Hilarious Glimpse Into DC

How a man handsome and talented enough to play Superman for four years manages to channel former FBI agent Peter Strzok in all his wiggly-shouldered, smirking glory is just one of the enjoyable things about the new effort from filmmakers Phelim McAleer and his wife Ann McElhinney (lately of the controversial film Gosnell) titled, “FBI Lovebirds: Undercovers”.

The play, filmed Thursday in front of a live audience at the Reagan Building’s amphitheater in downtown Washington, DC — and soon to be available on YouTube — tells the story of Strok and his lover, former FBI attorney Lisa Page, through their own words via text exchanges and hearing testimony.

Playing the leads are Dean Cain and former vampire slayer Kristy Swanson, neither of whom had ever done live theater before this production and who were both great fun to watch. And while the action such as it is (the characters never really interact with each other) takes place within the context of the Russia collusion probe and its aftermath, at its heart the play is the story of an affair.

And, with apologies to Lisa Page, who is portrayed by Swanson as a star-crossed, bored and snarky, possibly brilliant federal attorney with the emotional IQ of a teenager, it’s hilarious despite her heartbreak.

McAleer chose text exchanges that effectively fleshed out the personalities of the mercurial Page and Strzok, who apparently hated and pitied everyone. For example, when Page is moved onto the Mueller team, she laments the location of her new office because it will provide everyone with proof of how late she gets to work. Strzok on the other hand, offers his paramour a greasy apology later in the production for presenting an idea she came up with to a boss but, sadly, without being able to give her credit.

Cain approaches Strzok — who comes across as the less talented of the two lovers, but who knows a meal ticket when he sees one — in a way similar to that of his co-star Swanson. His Strzok is a narcissistic teenage boy who uses way too many exclamation points and emojis and is prone to dropping and doing pushups in between making fun of Trump supporters at Wal-Mart.

DC residents will recognize these two malcontents as every other person they meet. Non-DC residents will get a rare glimpse of the inner brain workings of the entitled bureaucrats who help run the country.

But arguably the most enjoyable realization was that former South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy’s questioning as the Oversight Committee Chair (McAleer splices together Congressional testimony but Gowdy’s lines are immediately recognizable) are perfect as dialogue in a comedic stage play. And the line of questioning about how Trump supporters SMELL delivered by actor Bruce Nozick, who was brilliant, was laugh-out-loud funny.

There was some controversy surrounding the production as DC’s Mead Theater, part of the Studio Theater Group, backed out of hosting it at the last minute citing death threats. But McAleer, no stranger to controversy, had choice words for the venue.

In an email to the producers, a Studio representative wrote: “We have an institutional responsibility to protect the safety of our staff, patrons, rental guests, and community. In the best interests of all involved, we must ask that you find another venue for your event.”

McAleer says he’ll be doing just that.

“The people who run the Studio-Mead Theatre are hypocrites and they are cowards, scared of a play that tells the truth and might challenge their cozy bubble,” he said. “We will get a venue. The staged reading will go ahead. It will be filmed and released online and everyone will get to see the truth about how the upper echelons of the FBI tried to subvert democracy.”

In short, despite the controversy, the still-needed funding to pay for the last-minute venue change, and the leads’ inexperience in front of a live audience, the play deservedly received many heartfelt laughs and a standing ovation from a cynical DC crowd. Those not in attendance would do well to watch the YouTube video as soon as its available.

The Damage Crossfire Hurricane Did To FBI’s Counterintelligence Division ‘Will Last For Years’ Says Former Counterspy

Westlake Legal Group fbi-620x388 The Damage Crossfire Hurricane Did To FBI’s Counterintelligence Division ‘Will Last For Years’ Says Former Counterspy Russia collusion Peter Strzok Front Page Stories Featured Story FBI Counter Intelligence Abuse of Power

When Attorney General Bill Barr told Congress in April he believed spying did occur against the Trump campaign, he was referring to the work of the formerly respected FBI division of counterintelligence, where Peter Strzok clocked in every day.

The Washington Free Beacon details the almost mythical history of the division and how now, following its fall from grace as stooges for the powers-that-be that wanted Trump out of the game, it is the focus of the Department of Justice’s special investigation into the origins of the Russia collusion probe.

Two senior counterintelligence officials no longer with the bureau are among likely targets of the investigation by John Durham, U.S. attorney for the District of Connecticut. Both were key managers of the high-profile investigations in 2016 into classified information found on Hillary Clinton’s private email server, and the now-discredited counterspy operation into links between the Trump presidential campaign and Russian government.

A central figure is Peter Strzok, deputy assistant FBI director for the counterintelligence division, who was fired in August. Another key player was his boss, Bill Priestap, assistant FBI director for counterintelligence, who quietly resigned in December.

In the three years since the controversial investigations, the FBI counterintelligence division has sought to rebuild its reputation by conducting aggressive operations untainted by past allegations of liberal political bias through recent high-profile spy cases.

This merry band of partisans has nearly destroyed what was once a highly respected division doing impressive work. In fact, the Free Beacon reports, during the presidency of Bill Clinton onward, the division began to suffer from terrible mishaps of duty.

Since the 1990s, however, FBI counterintelligence has suffered numerous failures. They include botched counterspy investigations into Chinese nuclear spies that stole American warhead secrets; a Chinese double agent who worked as an informant for the FBI in Los Angeles; and, most damaging, failing to uncover FBI turncoat agent Robert Hanssen who worked as an FBI counterspy and Moscow agent undetected for more than 20 years.

Other counterintelligence lapses included a Cuban mole that operated secretly inside for the Defense Intelligence Agency, the loss of more than two dozen recruited CIA assets in China, and the arrests of numerous recruited intelligence agents in Iran beginning in 2010.

Strzok is the newest member who is the source of the division’s ills, and while Barr indicated in his interview with CBS This Morning that he could see a scenario in which these agents felt they were doing what’s right, Strzok is being criticized for being particularly ill-suited to any role in counterintelligence due to extramarital affairs, accepting media favors against FBI policy et al.

The cumulative effect of a department run by employees with loyalty to a political outcome rather than to the work of counterintel to protect their country is highly damaging, reports the Beacon.

“The damage they’ve done to the FBI will last for years,” said former FBI counterspy I.C. Smith.

DeGraffenreid said the fallout from Crossfire Hurricane likely will further weaken an already poor FBI counterintelligence capability. Bureaucratically, the fallout will further erode support for aggressive counterintelligence and dissuade the most capable people from seeking counterspy positions.

Strzok, based on his congressional testimony and publicized text, revealed himself to be ill-suited for counterintelligence. The FBI counterspy came across as “an arrogant bureaucrat” in his congressional testimony, deGraffenreid said. “He’s not George Smiley.”

Also, as outlined by the Justice IG, the FBI’s protective bureaucratic culture is in need of correcting.

“There’s extreme bureaucratization there with a culture that thinks the bureau is something other than the United States,” said deGraffenreid who worked with senior FBI officials in government for more than 30 years.

“More than any other government bureaucracy, the FBI will openly lie to protect the FBI’s reputation,” he said, adding that of all the intelligence disciplines, counterintelligence requires the smartest and best analysts and operators free of political bias like that shown by Strzok.

It is beyond frightening that one of the most important and secretive divisions within the federal police force was thick with partisanship and so far removed from their proper mission that they would engage in spy games to unseat a president. But that appears to be exactly what happened. We’ll know more when all the subsequent “investigations into the investigators” are released.

But one thing is already certain: the FBI needs to do a little housecleaning. Before this is all over, I suspect we’ll find other agencies do as well.

Newly Released Strzok/Page Emails Show FBI ‘Gaps’ In Hillary Clinton Probe and Special Treatment To Her Lawyers

Westlake Legal Group strzok-hearing-620x413 Newly Released Strzok/Page Emails Show FBI ‘Gaps’ In Hillary Clinton Probe and Special Treatment To Her Lawyers Uncategorized Tom Fitton Peter Strzok Lisa Page Hillary Clinton Front Page Stories Featured Story David Kendall

FBI Deputy Assistant Director Peter Strzok, testifies before a House Judiciary Committee joint hearing on “oversight of FBI and Department of Justice actions surrounding the 2016 election” on Capitol Hill in Washington, Thursday, July 12, 2018. (AP Photo/Manuel Balce Ceneta)

 

Judicial Watch founder Tom Fitton has received 218 pages of emails between former FBI agent Peter Strzok and FBI lawyer Lisa Page from August 2016. The topic is the FBI’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server during her tenure as Secretary of State.

The first revelation shows that FBI officials failed to write up 302 reports (summaries of interviews) for at least four witnesses in the investigation. In one email, Page tells Strzok, FBI intelligence analyst Jonathan Moffa and others that the reports “were never written.” Unfortunately, she doesn’t indicate who the subjects of those interviews were or why they were not written. She writes:[Redacted] discovered that there were four (I think) 302s that had never been written.”

If one 302 was missing or, for whatever reason, had never been written, it would be an oddity, but it wouldn’t necessarily raise a red flag.

When four are missing, however, it is a different story. Who were the witnesses? What did they tell the FBI interrogators? Something that didn’t quite fit their narrative? Something that perhaps incriminated the former Secretary of State. Because if witnesses close to Clinton simply told the truth, by definition the information would be incriminating to Clinton. We know she sent and received classified information over a private server.

It is significant that an FBI interviewer would fail write up a 302 which is standard FBI operating procedure after any witness contact. This is an anomaly that members of John Durham’s team, who is authorized to request related classified documents, can look into.

This is not the first time important documents related to the Clintons have ‘disappeared.’ According to Fox News, during the 2016 Clinton investigation, two “bankers boxes” of Clinton’s emails went missing. Just like that.

The other new information gleaned from the emails is that FBI officials, particularly then-FBI General Counsel James Baker, were exceedingly accommodating to the requests made by Clinton’s attorney, David Kendall.

On August 16, 2016, Baker emailed  then-Associate Deputy Director David Bowditch; Michael Steinbach, former executive assistant director for national security; former Acting Assistant Director Jason V. Herring; Page; former Principal Deputy General Counsel Trisha Anderson; Michael Kortan, FBI assistant director for public affairs, now retired; James Rybicki, former chief of staff to Comey; and others. He wrote:

I just spoke with David Kendall … I conveyed our view that in order to obtain the documents [FBI investigative material] they are seeking they need to submit a request pursuant to the Privacy Act and FOIA. I said they could submit a letter to me covering both statutes. They will send it in the morning. I said that we would process it expeditiously. David asked us to focus first on the Secretary’s 302 [FBI interview report]. I said OK. [Redacted] We will have to focus on this issue tomorrow and get the 302 out the door as soon as possible and then focus on the rest of the stuff.

The next day, Baker received FOIA/Privacy Act request on “behalf of former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton” and asked for “expeditious processing.” Baker emails the same group. He wrote:

In my view, we need to move as quickly as possible on this, but pursuant to David’s oral request last night, we should focus first on Secretary Clinton’s 302…. Is the end of this week out of the question for her 302?

Anderson replies that they need to “coordinate a plan for processing and releasing” Clinton’s 302. One official surprisingly “reminds others that they should process the request “consistent” with other requests.”

Additional emails say that Baker promises to give Kendall “a heads up before they posted the Clinton interview 302 publicly online. I said we would alert him shortly before it appeared on our website.” Which they proceed to do.

What do we make of the compliant behavior of top FBI officials? Did it have anything to do with the “agreement” between Clinton’s lawyers and top-ranking DOJ officials that we learned about from Strzok’s testimony last summer? It’s likely.

When you contrast this submissive behavior to the stone-walling faced by Rep. Devin Nunes’ (R-CA) or Sen. Chuck Grassley’s (R-IA) whether committees requested documents during the congressional investigations, the difference is night and day. There’s no doubt that Clinton’s attorneys received what Tom Fitton calls “special treatment.”

Fitton said, “These incredible documents show the leadership of the FBI rushed to give Hillary Clinton her FBI interview report shortly before the election. And the documents also show the FBI failed to timely document interviews in the Clinton email ‘matter’ – further confirming the whole investigation was a joke. AG Barr can’t reopen the Clinton email investigation soon enough.”

Sen. Lindsey Graham, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, appeared on Hannity last night and said the reason Hillary Clinton was not prosecuted is that the deep state wanted her to win. Graham said, “If you want her to win, you can’t prosecute her.” That’s why she and her attorneys received special treatment. He said, “Hillary Clinton committed obstruction of justice.”

Remember the Time That Jim Comey Sent Peter Strzok To Brief Donald Trump On the Danger From Russia

One of the overarching mysteries of the whole Russia collusion hoax is why the FBI, despite it’s legitimate concerns about the activities of a few people in and associated with the Trump campaign, never warned the candidate about those concerns. This lack of warning was a stark break in departure from historical practice. It has, for instance, been reported the FBI did deliver such defensive briefing to Senator John McCain during the 2008 campaign and he removed a staffer who may have been a counterintelligence risk.

As it turned out, the FBI did deliver such a briefing to then-candidate Trump. The briefing was conducted by none other than Peter “Insurance Policy” Strzok at the direction of James Comey, himself.

A mid-August 2016 counterintelligence briefing for the Trump campaign did not specifically warn officials about Russian outreach to the Trump team, nor did it warn that two campaign aides, Mike Flynn and George Papadopoulos, were already under FBI investigation, Fox News has learned.

The new details about the so-called “defensive briefing” have emerged from congressional letters, text messages between FBI agent Peter Strzok and lawyer Lisa Page, and sources familiar with the matter. Such briefings are designed to warn the candidate and his team about national security threats.

“There was a defensive briefing of candidate Trump on Aug. 17 of 2016,” Texas Rep. John Ratcliffe, a member of the House Judiciary Committee, said Thursday on Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom.” “And I can tell you what he wasn’t told: He wasn’t warned about a Russia investigation that Peter Strzok had opened 18 days earlier.”

A source familiar with sensitive records documenting the August briefing told Fox News that Strzok was in a unique — and apparently conflicted — position. Strzok opened the FBI investigation into Russian outreach to Trump campaign aides, while at the same time he was supposed to be warning the Trump campaign about Russian activities.

Critics of the Russia and special counsel probes question whether the lengthy investigation could have been shorter, or whether it could have been avoided altogether, had Strzok and others provided adequate warning.

Of course he was conflicted. Strzok appears to have been, like the rest of FBI and Justice leadership, Hillary Clinton partisans. He could see the value of hammering the Trump campaign at some later time with allegations of “Russians in the Mist.” In fact, is was shortly before this that Strzok sent his mistress the text message that referred to the “insurance policy” and promising that Trump would never become president because they would “stop it.”

By the time that this briefing took place, the FBI already knew that George Papadopoulos didn’t know squat…he was spoonfed a rumor by another Western intelligence, if not FBI, asset. The sole person on the campaign with any major role still under suspicion was Manafort. Apparently, Mike Flynn had tickled the FBI’s sensors by making a hugely public appearance at an RT gala in Moscow. But, as far as we know, Flynn was not under any suspicion in August 2016 and he still retained his security clearances.

Watch the latest video at foxnews.com

Ratcliffe on Thursday questioned Strzok’s role.

“Why would Peter Strzok, who would participate at [former FBI director] Jim Comey’s direction in a defensive briefing designed to protect and warn a candidate, be the same person who is in fact at that time already investigating the candidate’s campaign? That shouldn’t happen. There should be answers to those questions,” he said.

We hope that John Durham’s investigation finds the answers because it would be interesting to hear the explanation of why the FBI refused to tell the man who would become the President of the United States that there were possible foreign agents in his inner circle so he could remedy the problem and, instead, elected to husband those allegations and use them to launch the Mueller investigation.

NEW: FBI Was Informed of Secret State Dept. Dossier Meeting BEFORE Submitting FISA Application

Westlake Legal Group fbi-620x388 NEW: FBI Was Informed of Secret State Dept. Dossier Meeting BEFORE Submitting FISA Application Stephen Laycock Steele dossier Special Counsel Peter Strzok Mueller Investigation Kevin Brock Kathleen Kavalec John Solomon Front Page Stories Featured Story FBI and DOJ Corruption donald trump Christopher Steele Allow Media Exception Abuse of Power

 

Last week, The Hill’s John Solomon, a long-time Washington investigative journalist who has followed this story closely, reported twin bombshell reports about a previously unknown meeting between dossier author Christopher Steele and Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Kathleen Kavalec. (I wrote about the details here and here.) Among other things, Steele had revealed that his client was “keen” to break the story before Election day and that he had leaked to the media. This prompted Kavalec to write a memo to inform the FBI of what she had learned. She sent her memo via email to the FBI on October 13, 2016, eight days before the FBI submitted their application (for a warrant to spy on former Trump campaign advisor Carter Page) to the FISA Court.

Conservative group Citizens United, through a FOIA request, obtained copies of Kavalec’s memo and notes last week. However, the documents had been so heavily redacted by the FBI (who had retroactively classified them) that it was impossible to determine who the recipient was.

In fact, only one sentence of the memo was left unredacted, which said, “You may already have this information but wanted to pass it on just in case.” There was also an attachment which Solomon’s sources said was “information Steele shared with Kavalec that she felt needed to be transmitted to the bureau.”

He reported that multiple sources have confirmed that Kavalec’s email was received by Special Agent Stephen Laycock, who was Kavalec’s normal point of contact on Eurasian counterintelligence matters. At the time, Laycock was the FBI’s section chief for Eurasian counterintelligence that same day. (He currently serves as the assistant director for intelligence under Director Christopher Wray.)

His sources further told him that Laycock immediately forwarded the email to the FBI team in charge of the Trump/Russia investigation, which was led by Peter Strzok.

So, this information was received eight days before FBI officials swore to the FISA Court that they “had no derogatory information on Steele” and presented his bogus dossier as the basis of their application for the warrant.

Solomon was unable to determine what happened to the email after it had been received by the Strzok team.

He wrote:

The email exchange means FBI supervisors knew Steele had contact with State and had reason to inquire what he was saying before they sought the warrant. If they had inquired, agents would have learned Steele had admitted to Kavalec he had been leaking to the news media, had a political deadline of Election Day to get his information public and had provided demonstrably false intelligence in one case.

Current and former FBI officials told me it would be a red flag for an FBI informant on a sensitive counterintelligence case such as Russia to go talking about his evidence with another federal agency without authorization.

Solomon spoke to Kevin Brock who had served as the FBI assistant director for intelligence. Brock said:

The State Department’s email in October 2016 ordinarily should have triggered the FBI to re-evaluate Steele as a source. This is quite important. Under normal circumstances, when you get information about the conduct of your source that gives rise to questions about their reliability or truthfulness, you usually go back and re-evaluate their dependability and credibility.

It doesn’t always mean immediate discontinuation of the source. But there are policy requirements that you exercise some form of prudence, and conduct further vetting to determine whether this source can be utilized going forward. This is particularly true if the source’s information is being used in an affidavit or some other legal process.

When the FBI contracts with an informant, the individual is required to undergo “admonishment” training, where they learn the “rules” of the game. For example, they are forbidden to speak to the media and they must receive authorization from the FBI before speaking with people from other government agencies. Despite signing such an agreement on February 2, 2106, Steele broke both of these rules and was fired on November 1, 2016. By then, Solomon points out, the FBI had already used “Steele’s intelligence as the main evidence to secure the FISA warrant against the Trump campaign.”

Although the FBI had fired Steele, they continued to receive his information through DOJ official Bruce Ohr, whose wife, Nellie Ohr, worked as a researcher at Fusion GPS. She focused on digging up dirt on Trump and his family.

Solomon said he was unable to learn any information regarding two email exchanges about Steele between Kavalec and FBI officials which occurred “on Sept. 29-30, 2016. They have been redacted, except for a single phrase “Thank you Kathy.” Congressional investigators want to know if the earlier exchange resulted in Kavalec learning in advance of Steele’s work for the FBI, or was a further tipoff to the FBI of Steele’s intention to visit State, a department where he had offered pro bono information in the past.”

Joe DiGenova: Deep State Coup Against Trump Is John Brennan’s ‘Rosemary’s Baby’

Westlake Legal Group john-brennan-620x443 Joe DiGenova: Deep State Coup Against Trump Is John Brennan’s ‘Rosemary’s Baby’ Susan Rice President Obama Peter Strzok Mueller Investigation Lisa Page John Brennan Joe diGenova James Clapper Front Page Stories Featured Story donald trump corruption Allow Media Exception Abuse of Power

Caricature by DonkeyHotey flic.kr/p/Ct4G4K https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/2.0/

Former FISA Court Judge and U.S. prosecutor Joe DiGenova told “Judicial Watch” that the anti-Trump targeting plot was initiated by Obama CIA Director John Brennan. In a recent interview, he called it “John Brennan’s Rosemary’s Baby.”

Brennan’s hatred of Trump was well known among those inside and close to the Obama administration. He worried obsessively that Donald Trump might win the presidency and began actively searching for “intelligence” to use against him.

DiGenova said:

John Brennan hated Trump and he used the powerful tools of the United States intelligence community to weaponize intelligence. He also may have done something else that people haven’t talked about. The 1947 National Security Act makes it illegal for the CIA to spy in the United States or to cause people to spy in the United States. John Brennan did that in this situation when he started this entire scheme and I think he should be held accountable for that and I think he will be.

People have to understand that this scandal has actually been wide open for everyone to see since April 26, 2017. That’s when Judge [Rosemary] Collyer of the FISA Court issued a 99-page opinion in which she outlined four years of illegal spying by FBI outside contractors who sought access to what are called 702 databases. These are the databases about Americans. You can go in there if you’re properly authorized and make what are called “about” inquiries. You want to find out something about American citizens. They did that illegally for four years and it is believed that those four years of obtaining that information illegally led to unmasking of people who should not have been unmasked – American citizens – and the leaking of that information to the press.

That is a scandal which as yet has gone unnoticed by the media and unpunished. And the hero in that story is Admiral Mike Rogers who was the head of the National Security Agency at the time. He discovered this, notified the FISA Court and for his efforts, [Secretary of Defense] Ash Carter and [Director of National Intelligence] James Clapper tried to get him fired. So, that’s the great story. Admiral Rogers is the great hero and all the lawyers are the crooks.

We do know that President Obama knew about all of this counterintelligence activity. We know that from Susan Rice’s memo to the electronic file. But this is Brennan’s baby. This John Brennan’s Rosemary’s baby.

Neumayr wrote that John Brennan’s CIA “operated like a branch office of the Hillary campaign” and nothing could be more true.

He said that Brennan began pushing the FBI to open a counterintelligence investigation in the spring of 2016.

Brennan would present the FBI with what he called evidence. Neumayr says that Brennan would “shake down” foreign intelligence officials looking for anything to hang on Trump. In fact, the “original source of the intelligence” that Brennan was receiving from his overseas counterparts was British spy Christopher Steele.

He would present this information to then-FBI agent Peter Strzok and other government officials. Strzok, as much as he hated Trump, famously told his paramour, then FBI-lawyer Lisa Page, that “there’s no there there.”

Neumayr explains:

Brennan’s alleged intelligence from the British on Trump-Russia collusion was just laundered Steele opposition research for Hillary (Steele had been feeding his work to British spies, who contacted Brennan). At the center of almost all the streams of phony intelligence flowing into the FBI was Steele. Through his relationship with the FBI, he served as a direct stream of bad intelligence. Through foreign intelligence agencies, he became an indirect stream of bad intelligence (with anything he gave those agencies re-routed to the FBI through Brennan). He also served as a conduit for opposition research from Hillary partisans at or connected to the State Department (Cody Shearer, a Hillary hatchet man, passed his opposition research through John Kerry aide Jonathan Winer to Steele, who then fed it back to the FBI).

Brennan leaked news of his “probe” to then-Senator Harry Reid, who told reporters that “Brennan had an ulterior motive in leaking the existence of the probe to him. The very thought of Donald Trump as president made Brennan see red and caused him to lose all judgment.” But, regardless of what Reid believed, he wrote an open letter anyway to James Comey on August 27, 2016 about the Trump-Russian collusion he had just been made privy to and then the world knew about it.

The FBI knew they could not start an investigation based on the rubbish that Brennan was presenting to them. They needed to find a reason. When Australian diplomat, Alexander Downer, had drinks in a London bar with then-Trump campaign junior advisor George Papadopoulos, who told Downer that he had been approached by a Russian who offered to provide “dirt” on Hillary Clinton, that became a talking point for the FBI.

American Enterprise Institute fellow called Brennan “the most sinister of them all.” He said that Brennan “used his authority as CIA Director to suggest that Trump was a traitor and a compromised Russian asset. After Trump’s Helsinki summit, Brennan declared “he is wholly in the pocket of Putin.”

There is no question that Brennan abused his power in order to fabricate a case against Donald Trump. Unfortunately for them, Hillary lost the race and America is slowly learning the truth.

Trey Gowdy: ‘To Whoever Is Investigating This, Tell Them To Look For Emails Between Brennan And Comey In December 2016’

Not Happy

 

Former Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) served as the Chairman of the House Oversight Committee until his retirement from Congress in January. Currently a Fox News contributor, Gowdy appeared on “The Hannity Show” last night to discuss the “investigation of the investigators.” He has seen all of the pertinent documents which were provided to the Gang of Eight, “including the FBI’s own assessment of whether Steele was reliable.” And last night, Gowdy sent a message to DOJ officials: “To whoever is investigating this: Tell them to look for emails between Brennan and Comey in December 2016.”

Here is someone who has been privy to this material telling investigators that the damning evidence exists and precisely where to find it.

Over the weekend, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-TX), who are also familiar with the classified documents, made similar remarks.

Here is a clip from Gowdy’s conversation with Hannity: (Watch the video below.)

Gowdy: How did the FBI assess Christopher Steele? They have their own internal documents. Part of what Lindsey [Graham] wants to make public are their own FBI documents where they did their own assessment and I think you’ll be surprised as to whether or not they viewed Steele as being credible…They’re [Graham and Ratcliffe] talking about 302’s where an FBI informant [Christopher Steele] said he’d do anything in the world to make sure Donald Trump lost. That wasn’t a DNC employee. That was an FBI informant.

Hannity: Are you convinced that FBI agents, as well as the Attorney General at the time, Loretta Lynch, rigged Hillary Clinton’s investigation?

Gowdy: I am convinced that they handled that investigation in a way that I have never seen any other investigation handled before…

Hannity: 18 USC’s clear. If you have top-secret information on a private server, is that not a violation of the espionage act, a clear one?

Gowdy: If you handle it negligently, yes.

Hannity: Okay, well we know it was handled negligently. Would there be intention if you delete 33,000 subpoenaed emails, acid wash your hard drive with bleach bit, bust up your devices with hammers and pull out sim cards? Sir, you never lost a case. Would that be a good case for obstruction of justice, clear and convincing beyond any reasonable doubt?

Gowdy: It is fantastic evidence on the issue of intent which is what Comey said he didn’t have. It is consciousness of wrongdoing. It is knowledge. In addition to the multiple misstatements, the demonstrably false statement she made surrounding her handling of it.

Hannity: Are you convinced there was a fraud committed against the FISA Court?  Withholding that Hillary paid for that dossier and in fact, that the bulk of evidence was unverifiable, and that they never verified whether anything Steele wrote was true and did they do it to spy on the Trump campaign sir?

Gowdy: Sean, I can tell you it is even worse than what you describe. It is what you described in addition to the withholding of exculpatory information which is what has Johnny Ratcliffe so exercised. And they made no effort to corroborate the dossier until after it had been used for the application and a renewal. No effort. It’s not that they failed. They made no effort to do it. So whoever is investigating this, tell them to look for emails between Brennan and Comey in December 2016.

Hannity: Are you convinced that that phony Russian dossier, bought by Clinton, created by Steele, that used to lie to the FISA Court, are you convinced they tried to undo a duly elected president and take him down?

Gowdy: I’m just going on what Peter Strzok said. The lead agent in charge of investigating this said he thought Trump would be destabilizing, had an insurance policy, and then promised his over that we will stop it. So, you answer it.

Hannity: Well said.

Comey: Yeah, Strzok and Page made us all look bad, huh?

Westlake Legal Group comey Comey: Yeah, Strzok and Page made us all look bad, huh? The Blog Steele dossier Peter Strzok media bias Lisa Page james comey donald trump CNN Anderson Cooper

Fact check: True, but likely not a comprehensive list. For some strange reason, CNN held an election-style town hall featuring former FBI director James Comey last night, with questions covering the gamut of the now-closed Russiagate investigation. This format is used by the broadcaster almost exclusively for presidential candidates these days.  Does CNN believe that Comey’s running for office? Or perhaps running from something else?

At any rate, the very first question that came to Comey from the audience after a lengthy interview with Anderson Cooper didn’t have to do with Russia, but with biased investigators. Hilariously, Cooper felt as though he had to explain who Peter Strzok and Lisa Page are before taking the question, a point which reflects not only on Cooper’s lack of interest in the topic during the interview period but also on Cooper’s apparent impression that CNN viewers aren’t terribly well informed.

COOPER: We’ve got a question — I want to preface a little bit just for our viewers at home, in case they haven’t been following it. The question is going to be about Peter Strzok and Lisa Page and Andrew McCabe. Just for folks at home, Strzok and Page are former FBI officials who exchanged texts bashing then-candidate Trump in 2016, raising questions of bias. Strzok played a key role in the Hillary Clinton investigation, worked briefly on Mueller’s team. Strzok was eventually fired. Page resigned. McCabe was Direct Comey’s deputy at the FBI, lied to internal investigators about leaking information to the press. He was fired last year.

“In case they haven’t been following it”? The two have been headline material for months and got hauled into Congress to explain themselves. One doesn’t have to watch Fox News to know who Strzok and Page are and their significance to an investigation that ended up proving nothing at all. If CNN viewers aren’t well informed on Strzok and Page, whose fault is that?

Comey told the questioner — herself a law-enforcement expert that acts as an outside consultant to several agencies — that Strzok and Page got what they deserved for their inability to separate their political opinions from their work. Comey defended Andrew McCabe on this point, however, saying that the pair would “never let him see” those texts for fear of getting fired by McCabe. Given that McCabe himself was fired for lying to investigators, that might be a bit tough to credit.

Cooper followed up with a more specific question about Strzok and Page, and its impact on the FBI’s credibility in this probe:

COOPER: So do you acknowledge that this whole episode with Strzok and Page, that it damaged the reputation of the FBI and perhaps tarnished the investigation?

COMEY: Definitely. Yeah, very painful. It was important that it be investigated and important that there be discipline that follows it, but, yeah, it made us all look bad. Peter Strzok is a very talented agent. It’s a personal tragedy for him. But as much as I care about individuals, I care about the institution more. It hurt the institution.

Cooper also hits the Steele dossier, but only briefly, and only to allow Comey to defend some earlier comments made shortly after he got fired. Cooper mentions that the Mueller team couldn’t verify most of the dossier, but Comey says he was working on that effort when he got fired. Nothing is mentioned about the origins of the dossier nor how much the FBI knew was false when relying on it for the FISA warrant on Carter Page. That small portion of the town hall wasn’t just a softball, it was a snowball.

However, Cooper gives Comey plenty of room to explain how Donald Trump “eats your soul in small bites”:

COOPER: I want to follow up on that, because you wrote something that I found really interesting. You wrote an op-ed in the New York Times last week. It’s called “How Trump Coopts Leaders like Big Barr.” And in it, you said, part of it, you said, quote, “Accomplished people lacking inner strength can’t resist the compromises necessary to survive Mr. Trump, and that adds up to something they will never recover from. It takes character, like Mr. Mattis’, to avoid the damage because Mr. Trump eats your soul in small bites.” I mean, explain how you believe the president of the United States is eating peoples’ souls and how that process takes place.

COMEY: Yeah. And it doesn’t make me happy to write that, but it’s what I believe. This president, because he’s an amoral leader, shapes those around him. And that shaping sometimes pushes out someone who is a strong person of integrity who stands up and says, “Not going to have it,” but far more often, it shapes and bends and pulls in weaker souls. And he does it. I’ve seen him — it’s happened to me. The man lies constantly. In public, you’ve seen it. In private, the same thing happened. And he talks constantly. And so I sat there at dinner with him and he went on about how he had the biggest inauguration crowd in history, he didn’t make fun of a disabled reporter, and all of these lies are coming at you. And you’re sitting there over your salad, thinking, “That’s not true, that’s not true, that’s not true.”

But you don’t interrupt the president of the United States and say, “Mr. President, I saw the tape, you made fun of a disabled reporter.” Instead, it washes over you. And all of a sudden, you finish the dinner or the meeting and you realize, “Oh, my god, I’m part of a silent circle of assent. Did I just agree that that’s true because I didn’t speak?” And then there are ritual — these rituals of praise of the leader. And pretty soon you’re wrapped so tightly in this web that there’s no way out for you.

This isn’t probably far from the truth, as anyone who honestly watches Trump in public should know. It’s also probably not far from the truth for many politicians, perhaps even a couple who have risen to the office of the president — or tried very hard to do so. Very few people rise that high without having some helium in their egos, although perhaps Trump might have more than most.

But does everyone in Trump’s circle become zombies, unable to distinguish truth from lies, light from darkness, and mayonnaise from Miracle Whip? Paul Mirengoff scoffs at the notion and points to the Mueller report for validation:

Comey must not have read Robert Mueller’s report very carefully. One of Mueller’s findings is that members of Trump’s team didn’t carry out his instructions when they believed the instructions were wrongful.

Don McGahn, then the White House counsel, is perhaps the main example, but he’s certainly not the only one. The report cites Jeff Sessions, Rod Rosenstein, Reince Priebus, Rob Porter, K.T. McFarland, and others, including Comey himself.

Even Cory Lewandowski was among the “refuseniks.” According to Mueller, Trump twice pressured Lewandowski to ask Sessions to give a speech walking back his recusal from the Russia investigation. Lewandowksi didn’t do it.

His soul, and those of the others, remained intact.

Clearly, Comey isn’t writing honestly about Trump’s team. Is he writing honestly about himself?

As Paul concludes, it’s more likely that Comey’s trying to pin this characterization on William Barr. The attorney general is presently looking much more closely at the FBI’s handling of the Steele dossier and its use in getting FISA warrants, and the answers to those questions might put James Comey himself on the list of people who made the FBI look bad. It’s a shame that Cooper didn’t think to ask those questions last night, but given CNN’s weird promotion of Comey as a town hall star, it’s not terribly surprising.

At 2:57 am on January 9, 2011, Clinton aide Huma Abedin received an email from technology pro Justin Cooper, who oversaw Hillary Clinton’s private email servers.

Cooper: “I had to shut down the server. Someone was trying to hack us and while they did not get in i didnt want to let them have the chance to. I will restart in the morning.”

Abedin: “omg”

This little tidbit was included in a batch of newly released, partially redacted FBI documents from their “Midyear Exam” (ME) probe which can be viewed here. ME was the FBI’s codename for their investigation into Clinton’s use of a private server during her tenure as Secretary of State. This document indicates that there were many occasions when Clinton’s technology team “either suspected it had been hacked or seemingly acknowledged that security measures had come up short.”

This batch contains 277 pages of email exchanges, text messages and information about the specific equipment used by Clinton and her minions.

The documents include an email Abedin sent to Cheryl Mills and several other State Department officials three hours after she learned from Cooper that someone had tried to hack the server which said, “Don’t email hrc [Hillary Rodham Clinton] anything sensitive. I can explain more in person.”

An email from Cooper to Hillary said, “It is a constant fight to keep up with the security measures and unfortunately we keep seeing reminders of why we need to.”

After Clinton aide Monica Hanley had received a suspicious email in August 2010, she wrote to Abedin, “Yeah I wonder if someone hacked in. that stinks.”

Handwritten notes from the FBI’s interview of Justin Cooper in March 2016 start on page 19.

Note: Cooper, you may recall, was the employee who had famously smashed several of Hillary’s old devices with a hammer. That information came from a different source.

Here are some of the most notable revelations from the Cooper interview notes:

The server rooms in both locations were often left exposed.

He described the presence of a “SCIF” — an acronym “sensitive compartmented information facility” — in Clinton’s Chappaqua, N.Y., and Washington, D.C., homes.

Open door — not always secured, sometimes when HRC not @ residence was not closed. (both reside).

He described “safes” in at least one of the SCIFs, followed by a note from the agent, “No understanding of when open/closed” — although it was unclear whether that comment referred to the safes or the doors leading to the server room.”

There were “home computers” but “no secure computers” in the SCIFs…However, “phone/fax/video” were “secure” in the residences.

There were reports in August 2018 that Clinton’s server had been hacked by a Chinese state-owned company. The business, which operated in the D.C. area, penetrated Hillary Clinton’s private server and inserted code that forwarded copies of Clinton’s emails to the Chinese company in real time. I wrote about that here.

The Daily Caller’s Richard Pollock broke the story. According to Pollock, “The Chinese wrote code that was embedded in the server, which generated an instant “courtesy copy” for nearly all of her emails and forwarded them to the Chinese company.”

This was discovered by the Intelligence Community Inspector General in early 2015. The IG immediately briefed FBI officials, one of whom was Peter Strzok.

A former intelligence official who spoke to The Daily Caller would not divulge the name of the Chinese company, but  did say it was a “front group” for the Chinese government.

The FBI denied the story. An FBI spokesperson told Fox News that “The FBI has not found any evidence the servers were compromised.”

However, a May 2016 email from Strzok, obtained by Fox News last year, said “we know foreign actors obtained access” to some Clinton emails, including at least one “secret” message “via compromises of the private email accounts” of Clinton staffers.”

It sure looks like Hillary Clinton and those who worked closely with her were well aware of the impropriety of her use of a private server. It also appears that the FBI was covering up for her.

We’re now starting to see irrefutable evidence that Clinton used her private email account to conduct all of her State Department business regardless of whether or not it was classified.

Documents are now being released at a faster rate than in the past. We’ve learned a lot about the massive abuses of power by Obama era officials, but it’s still only a fraction of what Attorney General William Barr knows. The directness of his testimony during the recent Congressional hearings made that clear.

Barr’s comments have scared the *%$* out of Democrats and driven them into a state of panic.

At any rate, it looks like the parade of documents has finally begun. Más, más!

Newly Released Strzok Texts, Emails Suggest CIA Leaked False Information About Trump Campaign

Newly released text messages between former FBI agent Peter Strzok and former FBI lawyer Lisa Page show them questioning the origin of various stories they were seeing in the news.   

Senate Homeland Security Committee Chairman Ron Johnson, R-Wis., and Finance Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, sent a letter to Intelligence Community Inspector General Michael K. Atkinson to find out if he’s launched a probe “into these apparent leaks.” They wrote:

These texts and emails raise a number of serious questions and concerns. For example, who are the ‘sisters’ and what does it mean to say that the ‘sisters have [been] leaking like mad’?  What are they worried about, and what are they kicking into ‘overdrive’?  Which ‘agency’ is he referring to and why does Strzok believe the referenced news article highlights that ‘agency as [a] source of some of the leaks’?

On December 16, 2016, Strzok sent a text to Page: “I think our sisters have begun leaking like mad. Scorned and worried and political, they’re kicking into overdrive.” “Our sisters” is a reference to the CIA, which is the sister agency to the FBI. John Brennan was the CIA Director at the time.

On April 13, 2017, Strzok sent an email to members of his counterintelligence team which said, “I’m beginning to think the agency got information a lot earlier than we thought. They haven’t shared it completely with us. They’re leaking it. Might explain all these weird seemingly incorrect leads all these media people have.”

Rush Limbaugh addressed these communications on his radio show on Tuesday. He said:

Strzok and Page are seeing stories appearing in the media about the Trump-Russia investigation and they know the information is incorrect. And they immediately think that this stuff is coming from the CIA.

Now, this is significant, because we now know that there was no evidence of Trump-Russia collusion. So it looks like — and the source for this is Strzok and Page, the FBI agents. It looks like the CIA was, in fact, leaking false Trump-Russia stories to the press to undermine Trump. These are leaks that even the FBI agents running their own version of a coup thought were wrong and incorrect.

These FBI people are looking at a bunch of stuff in the media that isn’t true, at least as far as they know it.

And they’re concluding that Brennan and the CIA are leaking and putting this stuff in the media that they, then, have to deal with themselves. And they are concluding here, these are “incorrect leads all these media folks have.” That is a solid indication that the FBI’s looking at this as it’s happening, and that the CIA is releasing a bunch of BS that even the FBI thought was BS. And the media was just swallowing it all up, not questioning any of it.

And that’s because it came from Obama’s CIA, which they revere.

On December 14, 2016, NBC News published an article entitled “U.S. Officials: Putin Personally Involved in U.S. Election Hack.”

It says:

U.S. intelligence officials now believe with ‘a high level of confidence’ that Russian President Vladimir Putin became personally involved in the covert Russian campaign to interfere in the U.S. presidential election, senior U.S. intelligence officials told NBC News…Two senior officials with direct access to the information say new intelligence shows that Putin personally directed how hacked material from Democrats was leaked and otherwise used. The intelligence came from diplomatic sources and spies working for U.S. allies, the officials said.

Strzok and Page know they didn’t leak this information and assume their “sisters” at The Agency did. And the timing of the NBC article coincides with Strzok’s December text.

Limbaugh said:

This is a flat out lie. Either somebody literally made this up, or they got scammed by some agents in Russia who are running a scam on Brennan and they knew what Brennan wanted to hear, so they told him. Who knows how it happened, where it was originally sourced? But this has to be somebody at The Agency telling this to NBC.

This is the kind of crap that was going on. I was infuriated. I was. I cannot tell you how enraged I was during these entire two years. Every day, there was stuff like that. Every day, and four times a day, because once NBC ran it then it was picked up by the New York Times and the Washington Post, and it was an echo chamber for every one of these cockamamie, lying assertions such as that.

John Brennan and James Clapper, who was the Director of National Intelligence at the time will have to account for this and much more.

DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz report due in about three weeks will address FBI leaks to the media, in addition to their alleged FISA abuses. Leaks by the CIA and any other intelligence agencies implicated in this conspiracy will require a separate investigation. It’s likely that Attorney General William Barr’s DOJ is already on it.

We learn new information every day, but we can be sure that Barr knows a great deal more.

The Democrats feel the walls closing in on them and as their fear increases, their narrative becomes more and more desperate. Consider how little time it took to turn William Barr into a villain. It’s as if the Deep State has a formalized “central command” which issues the orders and the talking points.

The problem is that many Americans believe the rubbish they hear from the mainstream media. Half of America probably thinks William Barr is a criminal.

The Trump/Barr camp has to start fighting back even though they may not have all the answers yet.

Something must be done to stop the madness.
