Revision as of 11:18, 13 February 2020

Main article: Obama administration FISA abuse
As Trump rode the escalator to announce his candidacy, polls showed Hillary Clinton's collusion with Russia over the Uranium One deal was her biggest vulnerability. Deputy Attn. Gen. Sally Yates was taking steps to ban the Inspector General from oversight of the DOJ-National Security Division and hide FISA abuse.

2015

June 2015

  • 2 June. Senate voted to pass the USA Freedom Act, at a vote of 67–32. John Carlin — informed the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court that the USA Freedom Act would allow for the National Security Agency's domestic surveillance to continue for another six months as part of a transition period, despite the fact that it had ‘officially’ shut down on May 30, 2015.[1]
  • Eric Ciaramella meets with Alexandra Chalupa at the White House. Also present were Alexandra Sopko, who at the time was a special assistant and policy advisor to the director of the Office of Intergovernmental Affairs, which was run by Valerie Jarrett, and Alexa Kissinger, a special assistant to Jarrett.[2]
  • 8 June. Maria Butina approaches Patrick Byrne, CEO of Overstock.com, at the Las Vegas Freedom Fest.[3]
  • 9 June. Obama lawyers asked FISA court to ignore public court's decision on spying.[4]
  • 11 June. Obama denies lethal aid to Ukraine.[5]
  • 26 June. Hillary Clinton internal polling reports:
Secretary Clinton's top vulnerability tested in this poll is the attack that claims as Secretary of State she signed off on a deal that gave the Russian government control over twenty percent of America's uranium production, after investors in the deal donated over one hundred and forty million dollars to the Clinton Foundation. Half of all likely voters (53%) are less likely to support Clinton after hearing that statement and 17% are much less likely to support her after that statement.[6][7]
Democrat operative Alexandra Chalupa (left) Deep State informant Eric Ciaramella (right).[8]
  • Summer. CIA officer Eric Ciaramella specializing in Russia and Ukraine detailed over to the National Security Council working under National Security Advisor Susan Rice and closely with Vice President Joe Biden.[11]
  • June or July. Sara Carter: U.S. Amb in Ukraine allegedly told Prosecutor to handle ‘Biden investigation with white gloves’[12]
  • Shokin attempted to continue the investigations into Hunter Biden but on or around June or July of 2015, the U.S. Ambassador Geoffrey R. Pyatt told him that the investigation has to be handled with white gloves, which according to Mr. Shokin, that implied do nothing. Shokin was fired in April 2016, and his case was “closed by the current Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko.”

July 2015

Ten days after Hillary Clinton was referred to the FBI for investigation of her emails, Deputy AG Sally Yates issued a legal opinion barring Inspector General oversight of the DOJ-National Security Division.

  • 20 July. DOJ Dep. Attn. Gen. Sally Yates issues 58 page legal explanation denying the Office of Inspector General and Michael Horowitz oversight of the DOJ National Security Division.[13][14] DOJ IG Michael Horowitz raised concerns that his office would be required to seek the Department's permission. That procedure is “inconsistent with the Inspector General Act, impairs the OIG’s independence, and fails to account for the over 20 year record of Department and FBI compliance with OIG document requests,” according to the OIG's report.[15]
  • July. FBI hired CrowdStrike for a 1-year contract for a total of $150,000.00.[16]

November 2015

From November 1, 2015, to May 1st, 2016, thousands of illegal search queries were conducted. Nellie Ohr was employed by FusionGPS at the time this FISA abuse was detected.
  • 1 November. Minimisation requests started to be carried out in relation to FISAs, although they did not match the applicable minimisation procedures, at the National Security Agency.[17]
  • 9 November. Eric Ciaramella invites Alexandra Chalupa into the White House.</font>[18][19]
  • November. Joseph Mifsud joins London Centre of International Law Practice (LCILP).[20]
  • Alexander Downer attended a 2-day country retreat at the invitation of the private intelligence organisation Hakluyt & Co., followed by a cocktail soiree hosted by the same company at the Orangery in Kensington Palace.[21]

December 2015

Sundance of the conservativetreehouse.com summarizes:
December 2015 through April 2016: The first phase leading into ‘Spygate’ is the period of time where opposition research of the republican candidate field was taking place. It is in this period where Fusion-GPS hired CIA Open Source researcher Nellie Ohr, wife of DOJ-NSD official Bruce Ohr, to do research.
In the background of this time period the FBI and NSA database was being exploited by unknown FBI contractors; it is highly suspected that Nellie Ohr and/or Fusion-GPS was one of those contracted agencies with access to the massive electronic and metadata files.


Patrick Byrne begins reporting on Maria Butina more frequently to the FBI. Byrne became suspicious of the FBI motives because he warned FBI officials of a potential that his efforts, his reputation and those who trust him, may result in Butina gaining entry into campaign confidences. The FBI agents told Byrne that was exactly the intent; people high up in the FBI wanted Ms. Butina to gain deep access into the Trump campaign. Mr. Byrne became suspicious of a corrupt political motive, but didn’t say anything at the time.

  • 2 December. Dmitry Firtash announces hid intention to return to Ukraine to address the General Assembly of the Federation of Employers (FEU).
  • Joe Biden, President Poroshenko, and Ukrainian Minister of Internal Affairs Arsen Avakov took steps to prevent Firtash's return.[22]
  • 3 December. Politico reports:A Ukrainian oligarch’s foiled homecoming: The U.S. and the government in Kiev want Dmytro Firtash behind bars.
  • "Ukraine's Internal Affairs Minister Arsen Avakov announced on Sunday that, after consulting with U.S. officials, he instructed Ukrainian police to detain Firtash should he attempt to enter Ukraine."[23]
  • Photos of armed paramilitary groups were posted on Avakov's Facebook page; Politico reported the "commander of Ukraine’s nationalist Azov Battalion, said that his volunteer fighters would arrest Firtash themselves if government forces failed to do so. He later posted a Facebook photo of his armed men waiting at Kiev's Borispol airport.
  • 6 December. Biden meets with Poroshenko in Kiev.
Spygate: DOJ redacted the word, "lures". "Lures" are infiltrators, provocateurs, or spies who offer bait, in this case Hillary Clinton's emails. Oconus = outside contiguous United States. The message from Peter Strzok to Lisa Page reads, "You get all our outside contiguous US spies approved?" It was sent after Sally Yates ended independent oversight of the DOJ-National Security Division, while FBI contractors conducted over 5,000 illegal FISA 702 "About queries," and before Adm. Rogers cutoff outside FBI contractor access to the FISA database. The primaries, Hillary's whitewash, and official counterintelligence investigation were yet to come. Joseph Mifsud joined the London Center of International Law Practice (LCILP) a month earlier. Mifsud and Papadopoulos reportedly never crossed paths until March 14, 2016 - in Italy.
  • 7 December. Strzok texted Lisa Page that Jonathan Moffa was waiting for his job interview.
  • Joe Biden, His Son and the Case Against a Ukrainian Oligarch
  • Hunter Biden, Burisma Holdings, and its owner, Mykola Zlochevsky, who was Ukraine's ecology minister under former President Viktor F. Yanukovych before Hunter's boss, Zlochevsky, embezzled $5 Billion and became a fugitive from justice.
  • Zlochevsky hired Hunter Biden in 2014 while Vice President Biden oversaw U.S. loan guarantees to Ukraine.
  • Burisma is Ukraine's largest oil and gas produce; hunter Biden was appointed to the board of directors.
  • Hunter Biden was paid $166,000 a month, which was split with the nephew of Whitey Bulger.
  • Zlochevsky, a former Ukraine ecology minister, was under investigation by the new administration for embezzlement.
  • Prosecutors traced payments to Hunter Biden.
  • Vice President Biden threatened the new Ukrainian administration to withhold $1 Billion in U.S. allocated funds unless the prosecutor investigating Hunter Biden was fired.[24]
  • Biden addresses Ukrainian parliament (Rada) in Kiev.[25]
  • Before Flynn made the trip he alerted his former employer, the DIA. He then attended a “defensive” or “protective” briefing before he ever sat alongside Russian President Vladimir Putin at the Russia Today (RT) dinner, or before he talked with then-Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak. The briefing educated and sensitized Flynn to possible efforts by his Russian host to compromise the former high-ranking defense official and prepared him for conversations in which he could potentially extract intelligence for U.S. agencies such as the DIA. When Flynn returned from Moscow, he spent time briefing intelligence officials on what he learned during the Moscow contacts. Between two and nine intelligence officials attended the various meetings with Flynn about the RT event, and the information was moderately useful, about what one would expect from a public event.[28]
  • Joseph Mifsud also said to be in attendance.[29]
  • 18 December. Natural Gas Europe reports:
    "In 2015, Papadopoulos joined the London Center of International Law Practice as the director of the Center for International Energy and Natural Resources Law and Security. Papadopoulos focuses on the Eastern Mediterranean as well as the Caspian region.
    In 2015, he spoke to a business and energy convention in Israel, explaining the complex market for natural gas in the region. At the conference, he touched on issues of U.S.-Israel-Russia relations in an interview with Natural Gas Europe.[30]
  • 21 December. Brent Budowsky discusses Clinton strategy with John Podesta:
    Best approach is to slaughter Donald for his bromance with Putin.[31]
  • 23 December. FBI Director Comey names Bill Priestap as assistant director of Counterintelligence Division.
  • 29 December. Wall Street Journal reports that the Obama administration 'incidentally' collected private communications by members of Congress while it spied on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. In sweeping up “private conversations with U.S. lawmakers and American-Jewish groups… raised fears [of]—an ‘Oh-sh*t moment,’ one senior U.S. official said—that the executive branch would be accused of spying on Congress.”[32]
  • 31 December. Press release naming E.W. Priestap as Assistant Director of the FBI Counterintelligence Division.[33]

2016

January 2016

Ciaramella/Telizhenko meeting at the White House to discuss killing the Hunter Biden investigation and reviving allegations against Paul Manafort.[34]
The January 2016 gathering, confirmed by multiple participants and contemporaneous memos, brought some of Ukraine’s top corruption prosecutors and investigators face to face with members of former President Obama’s National Security Council (NSC), FBI, State Department and Department of Justice (DOJ)....Ukrainian participants said it didn’t take long — during the meetings and afterward — to realize the Americans’ objectives included two politically hot investigations: one that touched Vice President Joe Biden’s family and one that involved a lobbying [Manafort's] firm linked closely to then-candidate Trump.[37]
  • January. FBI initiates politically motivated money laundering and tax evasion investigation of Paul Manafort predicated on his activities as a political consultant to members of the Ukrainian government and Ukrainian politicians.[38]

October 2016

  • 15 October. John Carlin's last day. DOJ-NSD Principle Deputy Asst. Attorney General Mary McCord replaces Carlin. It was specifically John Carlin’s responsibility to ensure a valid legal basis for the FISA application submitted to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC).
  • 20 October. Adm. Mike Rogers was briefed by the NSA compliance officer on findings from the 702 NSA compliance audit. The audit had uncovered numerous “About” Query violations (Senate testimony).[39]
  • 21 October. Rogers shut down all “About Query” activity. He reported his findings to the DOJ (Senate testimony & inferences from Court Ruling).
  • Same day, the DOJ & FBI seek and receive a Title I FISA probable cause order authorizing electronic surveillance on Carter Page from the FISA Court. At this point, the FISA Court is unaware of the Section 702 violations.

2018

February 2018

  • 9 February. The media reported on text messages from 2017 between Senate Intelligence Committee Vice-Chairman Mark Warner and Chris Steele’s lawyer, a lobbyist named Adam Waldman. In 2017 and 2018 Mr. Waldman represented the interests of dossier author Chris Steele and Russian Billionaire Oleg Deripaska.
  • There was some initial media discussion of the text messages, and some eyebrows raised over why the Vice-Chairman of the SSCI would make statements saying “he would rather not have a paper trail” around the Steele communication, but generally speaking the DC media dropped the story quickly.

June 2018

  • 7 June. Indictment for Senate Select Committee on Intelligence Security Director James Wolfe was unsealed.
  • Wolfe was indicted for leaking information from within the SSCI to four journalists; and lying to FBI investigators.
  • Within the indictment we discover the FBI were conducting an ongoing leak investigation throughout 2017. Within that investigation a top-secret document was transferred to the custody of SSCI Security Director James Wolfe on March 17, 2017. The details inside that document were leaked to the media.
  • The indictment describes FBI investigators informing Mr. Wolfe in October of 2017 about their investigation of national security leaks. In December of 2017 Mr. Wolfe was confronted with evidence of his leaking to journalists including a woman now working for the New York Times named Ali Watkins, with whom he was having a sexual relationship – implied as a possible quid-pro-quo.
  • Wolfe left the SSCI quietly in mid-December 2018 and resigned shortly thereafter. No-one, outside of the principle characters involved, knows about the investigation until six months later, June 2018, when the indictment is made public. [Keep this in mind]
  • The June 2018 media coverage of the Wolfe indictment primarily focused on the affair with Ms. Watkins and Wolfe’s lying to investigators.
  • 8 June. Mark Warner texts were made public, on June 8th, 2018, another headline story surfaced. No-one drew a connection between the February ’18 publicity of SSCI Vice-Chairman Warner’s text messages and the June ’18 release of the FBI investigation of Wolfe from inside the SSCI the prior year (2017).

July 2018

  • 21 July. The DOJ/FBI declassified and publicly released the FISA application(s) used against former Trump campaign advisor Carter Page.[40]

The release was connected to a FOIA case filed by the New York Times the year prior [NOTE THIS]. There has never been a good explanation why the application was declassified and released. Despite the pre-existing NYT FOIA case, it never made sense why the DOJ/FBI did not attempt to deny the FOIA request. The request was a FOIA for FISA information, the highest security classification possible. It would have been very easy to deny the FOIA simply because the NYT was seeking classified documents. A no brainer for shielding any release. FISA is classified “Top-Secret”.

So, given the nature of the FISA application itself; and considering the DOJ had denied a similar request from congress; why did the DOJ/FBI suddenly decide it was okay to release the FISA application to the public?

[Short Answer (ah-ha moment): The DOJ/FBI knew the New York Times already had it.]

The media discussion of the FISA application release was very heavy. The story consumed a great deal of air time, print coverage and debate from the release on July 21st, 2018, all the way through to the Inspector General Horowitz report of December 2019, and that coverage continues through today. However, just like the Warner Texts; and just like the Wolfe indictment; no-one bothered to go back and connect the three component stories.

♦ Within the Wolfe indictment you’ll notice the “Top Secret” document picked-up by SSCI Director James Wolfe took place on March 17th, 2017:


♦ Within the Mark Warner text messages you’ll note the SSCI Vice-Chairman went into the SSCI Secured Compartmented Information Facility (SCIF) on March 17th, 2017, shortly after 4:00pm:

♦ Within the declassified and released FISA application you’ll notice the copy date from the FISA clerk for the FISA application was March 17th, 2017:


The information within the three events (Warner Text release, Wolfe Indictment release, and Carter Page FISA release) shows the connection of the events. James Wolfe took custody of the Carter Page FISA, delivered it to the SCIF, it was reviewed by SSCI Vice-Chair Mark Warner, and then leaked by James Wolfe.


It was the Carter Page FISA application that James Wolfe leaked to Ali Watkins as outlined within the unsealed June 2018 indictment.

Sidebar, a fourth albeit buried public release in December 14th 2018 confirmed everything. The FBI filed a sentencing recommendation proving it was the Carter Page FISA that was leaked:


I only share the sidebar (out of chronological sequence) to emphasize there is no doubt it was the FISA application that James Wolfe leaked. (Don’t get hung up here).

This explains (slightly, but there’s a much bigger story) why the DOJ/FBI released the FISA application in July 2018, as the result of a New York Times FOIA request.

The investigators within the DOJ/FBI knew the New York Times already had the FISA application from the James Wolfe leak to journalist Ali Watkins.

It’s going to get complex and I’m likely to lose all except the most dedicated readers who can understand what comes next…..

Keep in mind when the FISA court released the application copy to Wolfe on March 17th, 2017, there was only the original application from October 21st, 2016, and one renewal from January that existed. [The release was March 17th, 2017 – the April and June 2017 renewals had not taken place.]

Additionally, within the July 2018 public release (of the March 17th 2017 copy), the FBI investigators redacted all dates relating to the copy they released to Wolfe. AND, in all subsequent releases of any information from the FBI -through the declassification process- (including the initial version of the IG report on FISA) those dates were always redacted.

There has purposefully never been a clean copy release of the original FISA application and the three renewals. Therefore there has never been a clean copy release without date redactions – which includes the FISC copy dated March 17th.

When the DOJ/FBI released their July 2018 FOIA compliant set of FISA application(s) they didn’t just print a new copy, instead they re-released the Wolfe version and then added the last two renewals.

RECAP Chronology: February 2018 release of Warner Texts. June 2018 unsealed Wolfe Indictment. July 2018 release FISA application. All three of these releases are connected to one much larger story.

Knowing that James Wolfe was caught by the FBI and DOJ leaking the FISA application, why wasn’t the SSCI Security Director ever charged with leaking classified information?

Here’s where the poop hits the fan.

Here’s the cover-up.

Here’s where another event comes in.

Keep in mind SSCI Vice-Chairman Senator Mark Warner was the impetus for the FISA Court releasing the March 17th copy; also keep in mind the purpose of the text messages between Senator Warner and Chris Steele’s lawyer Adam Waldman.

During his initial summer and fall negotiations with the DOJ, James Wolfe threatened to subpoena the SSCI in his defense. The implication was that Wolfe was directed to leak the FISA by members of the committee; and/or Wolfe was operating independently but under the assumption of alignment with SSCI members who were not adverse to Wolfe’s leak.

The investigation of Wolfe (October through December 2017) explains how and why the Warner text messages surfaced in Feb 2018. It’s highly likely Warner’s communication with Waldman was intercepted by FBI investigators who then questioned the Vice-Chairman about those texts. Or it’s possible/probable the FBI investigators asked Warner if he was aware of Wolfe’s leaks.

That investigative scenario prompted Senator Warner to attempt to get out in front of the story about his secret and covert communication efforts to contact and meet with Christopher Steele. Thus in February 2018 the Warner texts hit the media. The texts go from February 2017 though May 2017 [SEE HERE] and encompass the exact period when Wolfe leaked the FISA application – March 2017 (with April discussion).

As the Wolfe defense team discussions with the DOJ played out throughout the fall of 2018, there was little movement. Then came another event, the November 2018 mid-term election where Democrats took control over the House.

Meanwhile, in the lame-duck congressional period Senators on the SSCI asked the DOJ to go easy on Wolfe:


Immediately after the 2018 mid-terms DC Attorney Jessie Liu dropped most of the charges against Wolfe, and he was allowed -under a plea agreement- to plead guilty to only one count of lying to investigators.

December 11th, DOJ sentencing memo [HERE], and then a very pissed-off FBI follow-up within the DOJ response to the Defense sentencing memo [HERE] dated December 14th.

In essence, after the November election, SSCI Director Wolfe was allowed to avoid prosecution for leaking top-secret classified documents; and the bigger issue was covered-up.

DAG Rod Rosenstein was in charge; the Mueller investigation was ongoing; and DC U.S. Attorney Jessie Liu signed-off on the plea deal.


OPPORTUNITY – Ms. Jessie Liu is scheduled for her confirmation hearing on Thursday at 10:00am. Ms. Liu will be under oath. If any Senator on that committee is brave enough, they would ask:

♦ Did the DOJ or FBI have evidence that SSCI Security Director James Wolfe leaked the Carter Page FISA application to the media? We know the honest answer is yes.

The next follow up:

♦ Why was James Wolfe not prosecuted for that leak of classified information? And then things would get really interesting… Consider the ramifications.

An honest answer would prove the media lied for 18 months about the content of the FISA application. They’ve had it since March 2017. That’s how the New York Times knew to FOIA it. That’s why the New York Times filed the FOIA, to use it more openly.

An honest answer would prove the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (SSCI) was a participating entity in the coup effort.

An honest answer would explain why the SSCI would only approve of nominees who would not expose their activity. Remember, the CIA, FBI, DOJ, ODNI, DNI, etc. all require confirmation from the SSCI (including Chair and Vice-Chair); and the answer would highlight SSCI members were engaged in a seditious conspiracy against the office of the presidency.

An honest answer would explain how Vice-Chairman Mark Warner’s text messages surfaced. Mark Warner entered the dragnet of the FBI investigation of James Wolfe…. and he was questioned by the FBI about his text messages. THAT is why Warner got out in front of them.

An honest answer would also explain why former DOJ-NSD lawyer Michael Atkinson was recommended to become Intelligence Community Inspector General…. And why the SSCI approved. An honest answer would explain why ICIG Atkinson participated in the second soft-coup effort via the “whistle-blower.”

An honest answer would explain the unique nature of all the interests in/around Adam Schiff, Mark Warner, the House intel committee, the SSCI, the DOJ-NSD… Almost everything reconciles within the sunlight of an honest answer.

An honest answer would highlight several members of the 2016 U.S intel community oversight known as the “gang of eight” were participating in a covert effort against candidate Trump; and how some of the current Go8 members have legal exposure.

The ramifications are far reaching:

Who was Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein and DC Attorney Jessie Liu protecting? What institutional interests did Rod Rosenstein and Jessie Liu consider too stunning, too damaging, too overwhelming, to confront in their decision to allow such a weak plea contrast against such severe criminal conduct? It is even possible for the United States Dept. of Justice to conduct a trial where members of the Gang of Eight were implicated in the activity? How could the institutions of the United States government survive the publicity of members within the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence conspiring with foreign and domestic actors to eliminate the President of the United States? How could the highest and most widely recognized U.S. media institutions (NYT, WaPo, CNN and more) survive exposure within that same trial. The media caught participating in a government effort (receiving leaked classified information) intended to eliminate the presidency of Donald John Trump? The downstream consequences are quite dramatic. The answer to those questions could create an explosion strong enough to split the atom within the swamp.

  • No windows were broken, and there were no other signs of forced entry. Authorities suspect the thief or thieves used an electronic jamming device to open the car door lock. The break-in appears to be a professional job.
  • House impeachment manager Adam Schiff cited Solomon no fewer than 35 times in his impeachment report. He added Solomon’s phone call history in a spreadsheet he compiled in the footnotes section of the report, which claimed Solomon reported “conspiracy theories” in The Hill to help President Trump “push false narratives” about Ukrainian interference in the 2016 election in favor of Hillary Clinton, as well as Biden’s attempts as vice president beginning late 2015 to fire a Ukrainian prosecutor investigating a gas industry oligarch whose company paid his son millions of dollars.
  • Solomon is reported to say that Schiff was singling him out as part of a smear campaign.
