Comey Had an Agent Spying On Trump Inside the White House

The struggle for Democrats to nail President Donald Trump with anything that they could generated no shortage of conspiracies and suspicions. One in particular is that FBI Director James Comey was trying his level best to bring Trump down from the inside.

Now it would appear that these suspicions are true as a report is going to be filed quite shortly showing that Comey was attempting to get dirt on Trump by planting an agent inside the White House to collect information against Trump, according to Real Clear Politics. Comey was apparently doing this while assuring Trump that there was no action being taken against him by the FBI:

Sources tell RealClearInvestigations that Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz will soon file a report with evidence indicating that Comey was misleading the president. Even as he repeatedly assured Trump that he was not a target, the former director was secretly trying to build a conspiracy case against the president, while at times acting as an investigative agent.

Two U.S. officials briefed on the inspector general’s investigation of possible FBI misconduct said Comey was essentially “running a covert operation against” the president, starting with a private “defensive briefing” he gave Trump just weeks before his inauguration. They said Horowitz has examined high-level FBI text messages and other communications indicating Comey was actually conducting a “counterintelligence assessment” of Trump during that January 2017 meeting in New York.

In addition to adding notes of his meetings and phone calls with Trump to the official FBI case file, Comey had an agent inside the White House who reported back to FBI headquarters about Trump and his aides, according to other officials familiar with the matter.

Real Clear noted that the motivations aren’t completely out in the open as to why Comey would do this yet, but Republicans are positive that this was another way that some were attempting to stop the Trump presidency for the same reasons that Peter Strzok was; political motivation.

How deep this rabbit hole goes is anyone’s guess. It’s doubtful Comey was doing this of his own accord and likely would have had co-conspirators in their mission to bring down an entire presidency from the inside. Rest assured that this investigation is going to turn up a lot more in the future.

The New York Times Goes to Hilarious Lengths to Not Use the Word “Spy”

This is what it looks like to turn pushing a narrative into an extreme sport.

In the past few days, we received the big revelation (which all of us able to think critically already knew for years) that the FBI did indeed spy on the Trump campaign. They sent a “covert agent” to set what looks like a honey trap for George Papadopoulus. This was one of several spies ran against the Trump campaign. The New York Times got out ahead of what’s likely going to be a damaging IG report by printing a sanitized confession from FBI sources. The purpose of that obviously being to shape the idea that it was justified.

You see, Trump was just so darn evil and connected with Russia (spoiler: he wasn’t) that the FBI had to take the unprecedented approach of spying on his campaign. Never mind that their appears to be no actual evidence to back up their actions and verified evidence is a requirement for targeting U.S. citizens like they did.

In the aftermath of all this, the media are still losing their minds over the word “spy” being used, namely by AG Bill Barr. This despite the fact that they used the term spying repeatedly to attack the Bush administration’s approved use of surveillance.

The New York Times is so desperate not to just give Trump the win on his campaign being spied on that they are now going with his hilarious new term instead.

A “cloaked investigator?” Has that phrase ever been used in the course of human history?

The internet had some fun with the stupidity of it all.

In all seriousness, this is absurd.

The media have spent the past two years insisting it was a “crazy conspiracy theory” to point out that the FBI spied on the Trump campaign. Even as evidence started to pile up pointing to that, they remained obtuse, insisting that only whacked out Trump supporters would say such a thing. Heck, less than a month ago CNN ran with a headline asserting that Barr’s charge of spying was backed by “no evidence.”

Now, we finally get a direct confession from the FBI and instead of admitting they were wrong, the media want to play 1984-style word games and pretend that “cloaked investigator” is a more accurate term than just saying spy. It’s laughable.

You can sense the panic, whether it’s in the mainstream media or in the statements from Democrats attacking Barr. They see the walls closing in and know the coming IG report is going to be a brutal rebuke of everything they’ve pushed up until this point. The flailing and excuse making we are now seeing is a desperate attempt to muddy the waters. I don’t think they are going to be able to hide from what’s coming though.

Great news: Russian spy operated in US Moscow embassy for a decade

What secrets did a Russian national employed by the Secret Service in the US embassy in Moscow pass along to her FSB handlers? According to a report late yesterday in the Guardian, we may never know. The Secret Service not only missed the fact that their employee was having regular meetings with Russian intelligence during her decade inside the embassy, they also botched the follow-up investigation.

The possibilities look almost endless, however:

The Russian national had been hired by the US Secret Service and is understood to have had access to the agency’s intranet and email systems, which gave her a potential window into highly confidential material including the schedules of the president and vice-president.

The woman had been working for the Secret Service for years before she came under suspicion in 2016 during a routine security sweep conducted by two investigators from the US Department of State’s Regional Security Office (RSO).

They established she was having regular and unauthorised meetings with members of the FSB, Russia’s principal security agency.

The Guardian has been told the RSO sounded the alarm in January 2017, but the Secret Service did not launch a full-scale inquiry of its own. Instead it decided to let her go quietly months later, possibly to contain any potential embarrassment.

Hmmmm. Why would they have kept her on even after her connection to the FSB (the successor agency to the KGB) had been discovered? One technique involved in intel work is to identify potential moles and feed them bad information. That allows security to test whether that specific information gets back to hostile intel services (and therefore confirm their status as moles), to confuse the enemy, and to keep their opponents from replacing an asset with some new and unknown source. That doesn’t make sense in this situation, however, given that their mole collected her intelligence directly from the computer systems.

Instead, the Secret Service allowed her to hang around long enough to get fired in the tit-for-tat diplomatic expulsions over Russian interference in the 2016 election. To this day, the damage is still largely unknown, as the Secret Service didn’t do a proper investigation, according to the Guardian’s source. They didn’t even investigate whether any other moles were operating within their embassy organization:

“The Secret Service is trying to hide the breach by firing [her],” the source said. “The damage was already done but the senior management of the Secret Service did not conduct any internal investigation to assess the damage and to see if [she] recruited any other employees to provide her with more information. Only an intense investigation by an outside source can determine the damage she has done.”

Did anyone else investigate? The Guardian reports that both the CIA and FBI looked into the matter but expected the Secret Service to take the lead on the investigation. That apparently went nowhere, perhaps in part to keep from getting embarrassed by the penetration. As a result, no one’s clear on just what the mole managed to turn over to Russian intelligence during the time she worked in the embassy — a period which stretches from the last two years of the George W. Bush administration to the very end of the Barack Obama administration.

That period is, perhaps coincidentally or perhaps not, the same period in which Vladimir Putin became much more aggressive on the world stage. By 2008 Putin would march on Georgia, a conflict that’s back in the news today thanks to more Russian aggression on the border. In 2014, Putin would seize Crimea and then infiltrate and later invade eastern Ukraine. Did Putin have ears and eyes on what the US was prepared to do, and what it wasn’t prepared to do, prior to his aggressions? We may never really know, although the Secret Service claims that the mole only had limited access to higher-classification data.

Needless to say, this kind of spycraft is significantly more serious than the Maria Butinas and Facebook trollery which has captured so much attention and hyperbole. The professional agencies involved in embassy security have to do a better job than this, especially after the fact. Without knowing precisely what got exposed, we have no way of taking effective countermeasures in response to it. That leaves us in the dark, with an opponent using night-vision goggles.
