FBI lawyer Lisa Page’s congressional testimony

A very important story came out on Friday from Jeff Carlson. I read it then but needed more time to research it, since it is quite a bit to go over.

Carlson received the transcripts of two closed-door testimonies by Lisa Page, the former assistant general counsel at the FBI from July 2018. I am only touching on one aspect of the transcripts, if interested please click on link to view the complete article.

Among the key revelations in the transcript is Obama CIA Director John Brennan’s early involvement in disseminating the information that would ultimately wind up in the Steele dossier. Brennan briefed President Obama in early August 2016 and Democratic leader Sen. Harry Reid of Nevada some days later.

These meeting are almost a month before the FBI would find out about the dossier and launch “Crossfire Hurricane” its probe resulting from the Steele dossier.

In Brennan’s earlier congressional testimony he stated: “In consultation with the White House, I personally briefed the full details of our understanding of Russian attempts to interfere in election to congressional leadership, specifically Senators Harry Reid, Mitch McConnell, Dianne Feinstein and Richard Burr; and to Representatives Paul Ryan, Nancy Pelosi, Devon Nunes and Adam Schiff between 11, August and 6, September.”

So what comes from Page’s testimony, which is the most surprising to me, is that the FBI “Crossfire Hurricane” probe into Russian collusion was a top down investigation perhaps ordered from the Obama White House resulting from CIA Director Brennan’s briefing.

Then FBI begins looking into the Steele Dossier, although they believe they are initiating the probe since Steele is an FBI asset.

Please give the full article a read.

Here are some other key findings from the testimony:

  • The FBI appears to have considered investigating President Trump for obstruction of justice both before and after FBI Director James Comey was fired.
  • Page says the DOJ refused to pursue “gross-negligence” charges against Hillary Clinton over her use of a private email server to send classified information.
  • FBI agent Michael Gaeta, head of the Eurasian Crime Squad, who received the dossier from former MI6 spy Steele in July 2016 is referred to in the transcript as Steele’s handler.
  • The FBI maintained a previously unknown verification file for the Steele dossier. Congressional investigators did not previously know of its existence.
  • John Carlin, the head of the DOJ’s National Security Division, was kept abreast of the FBI’s investigative activities through contact with then-Deputy FBI Director McCabe.
  • Page worked directly for DOJ official Bruce Ohr for at least five years and had met his wife, Nellie, once.
  • The role of FBI Agent Jonathan Moffa and DOJ official George Toscas may have been greater than initially assumed.

Lt. Gen. Flynn is the ‘keystone’ to FISA and Russian collusion plan

Lt. General Michael Flynn was the driving force behind the Russian collusion plan to undermine the Trump administration from the beginning.

Flynn was the Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency in the Obama administration from 2012-2014. He was a critic of the administration’s dealings with radical Islamists. Flynn lost a battle to CIA Director John Brennan — a Muslim by faith — and the White House of his assessment of the US involvement in Syria.

Flynn was feared and despised by the Obama White House for his views on radical Islamist and his deep knowledge of State Department and CIA involvement with Islamist extremists in Iran and Syria.

After leaving the Obama White House, Flynn traveled to Russia and meets with Russia government officials as a civilian. He is attends a dinner with Russian leader Vladimir Putin.

While Flynn did all the appropriate actions for the Russian trip — he met with DIA staff before leaving to let them know of the trip, he was briefed before on how to deal with the Russian questions and he was debriefed on what he discovered afterward. All above-board and reportedly helpful to the intelligence community.

So in 2015 Flynn begins speaking with the Trump campaign. Obama’s staff is furious and knows it needs to silence Flynn because he knows too much.

In late 2015 enter Stefan Halper, a career CIA asset working then as a Senior Fellow at Cambridge University. I believe Halper was brought in by Brennan to set up Flynn as colluding with the Russians. That’s where the whole Russian plan was hatched.

Halper was key to bringing in Fusion/GPS and Christopher Steele to produce the dossier with its first target being Flynn.

Flynn was most likely the subject of the first FISA application in the late spring of 2016 for his trip to Russia. However, the FISA court turned down the application because it did not show Flynn broke any laws.

In order to get the FISA court to approve spying on American citizens you need to show: a) The citizen was working with a foreign government, which in and of itself is not unlawful and b) broke the law like fraud or providing classified information.

The original application had no law broken, so it was denied. The Halper and Co. then went after Carter Page in the FISA court later in 2016 to spy on the Trump administration.

This is why Flynn remains free even after admitting guilt to minor charges brought by the DOJ/FBI for speaking with Russians after Trump’s election, but before he took office. Ironically FBI’s Peter Strzok was the agent that interviewed Flynn at the White House without a lawyer and brought these charges.

Obama administration still needed to silence Flynn from joining the Trump team as the National Security Advisor since he knew where all the Obama bodies are buried.

One last “indictment” on Flynn. When Trump meets with Obama after the election the only name brought up by Obama is Flynn telling Trump not to trust him.

This is why I say Lt. General Michael Flynn is the keystone to the whole Russian dossier.

Looking forward to 11/11

It’s looking like my original premise of why the Trump White House has quieted the rhetoric around the FISA document releases and the news of a vast fraudulent campaign by the Obama administration to aid Hillary Clinton in her run for the presidency will have to wait until after the midterm election.

Whether this has to do with compliance with the Hatch Act is open to debate, however it should be noted that 11/11/18 has been cited numerous times as a very important date.

Veteran’s Day this year was supposed to be Trump’s military parade to honor all those who served along with active duty servicemen and woman. The cost of such a parade was deemed too high and the fight for funding too arduous at the time. Especially with the Congressional battle to get The Wall funded happening at the same time.

Despite that setback, we are told on April 21, 2018 through the drops that 11/11 will:

>1133925
AMERICA WILL BE UNIFIED AGAIN!
11.11.18.
Q

And on March 8, 2018 that the Iran talks:

>594151
Resolved by 11-11.
Q

It also appears that on May 13, 2018 the resolution to wait until after the midterms to drop the indictment news was already decided.

>>1393485
What must happen pre 11.11?
11.11 provided as strategic marker.
Post midterms.
RED wave coming?
Strength.
Justice.
Q

So two and half weeks from now we could be looking at a very different political landscape as we come out of the midterm elections. Another proof may come with the House and Senate results tipping further into Republican control.

As I said earlier it, will be a quiet two weeks or so from the White House, but after the election then the fireworks could begin in earnest leading up to a Sunday Surprise.

 

Let’s see if the BOOMS come on Election Day

======================= SPECIAL SUNDAY POST ======================

Something is afoot as the midterm elections draw near.

Expected BOOMS have died on the vine as DOJ Asst. Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has further exhibited his nine lives. His sit down with President Trump on Air Force One and subsequent nixing of his Congressional panel testimony prove he surely has cards left in his hand to be played.

I have to assume through the continuing silence on Rosenstein from the White House the FISA declassification will not be used to taint the midterm election. My thought suggests that the parsing of all the information from declassifying the FISA documents would require a few weeks to decimate the impact of the news for general population.

You could not break the news with revelations that the Obama White House was aware and updated almost daily though intelligence briefings about the spying on a rival party presidential campaign and president-elect by using a Democratic Party oppositional report to allow the Clinton campaign to get espionage court to allow the FBI/CIA through our allies to spy on American citizens.

That scenario is just too much for a general population to wrap their heads around in two weeks. And given the divisiveness of the country, it would probably fall on deaf ears as partisan news organizations would couch the charges as a means just to sway the election.

No, indictments would need to be revealed with press conferences and perp walks to even register a blip on the radar of the national stage.

The time needed for all that has passed and the lack of communication from the administration has pretty much confirmed this theory.

I have to assume that Trump’s White House feels there is no need to muddy the waters even further, since their polling data shows the House and Senate are not in jeopardy at this time.

That’s what I take away from the lack of BOOMS prior to the election. The BOOMS will occur on Nov. 6.

 

Kavanaugh’s Gitmo answer

Did anyone else find Senator Lindsey Graham’s questioning of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh invigorating?

Graham asked Kavanaugh about the difference between civil and military law in the Constitution.

Kavanaugh explain that it is settled law with many precedents “for the law of armed conflicts” and how there are differences between that law and civil law.

The Supreme Court nominee cited Johnson v Eisentrager as being a precedent for declaring an American citizen an enemy combatant. Sometimes they are prosecuted civilly other times in the military, Kavanaugh testified.

Graham went on the say that Nazi collaborators were executed as a result of that case and Kavanaugh agreed.

Kavanaugh said there is a well developed body of law before 9/11 that understood the differences between criminal law and and the law of armed conflicts.

This three-minute exchange sent a message to those in the know that prosecution will not be in a federal court in DC, but perhaps in Gitmo.

So whether Rep. Devin Nunes releases the FISA document into the Congressional Record or President Trump declas-sifies the document we have been given a window into the appeals process for all the alleged treasonous officials involved in the throwing of the 2016 presidential election.

So let’s get on with the show.
