Three important developments/linkages.
First, Representative Louie Gohmert reveals that Felonia Von Pantsuit’s e-mail server was compromised and sending traffic to a foreign power:

The Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG) found an “anomaly on Hillary Clinton’s emails going through their private server, and when they had done the forensic analysis, they found that her emails, every single one except four, over 30,000, were going to an address that was not on the distribution list,” Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert of Texas said during a hearing with FBI official Peter Strzok.
“It was going to an unauthorized source that was a foreign entity unrelated to Russia,” he added.
Gohmert said the ICIG investigator, Frank Rucker, presented the findings to Strzok, but that the FBI official did not do anything with the information.
Strzok acknowledged meeting with Rucker, but said he did not recall the “specific content.”
Rucker had the good sense to take the IC Inspector General’s General Counsel with him to that meeting, so there is a witness to what was said, and we clearly see that nothing whatsoever was done.
A point that RedState pounds home:

The thing that has always struck me about the whole Hillary Clinton email fiasco is the studious lack of curiosity by the US government over how TS/SCI documents were removed from a SCIF and transmitted via garden variety email and stored on a server that had no cyber or physical security. No curiosity was expressed about a document that appeared to have been produced via signals intelligence sources being sent by the half-assed “intelligence” group headed by Sid Blumenthal and the fortunately deceased Tyler Drumheller to Clinton (see here |here). The lack of curiosity extended so far as to give immunity from prosecution to the guy managing it. McCabe was totally incurious about what was on Huma Abedin’s laptop inasmuch as it included Clinton’s emails. And when told by the ICIG that Hillary Clinton’s emails had been auto-forwarded to a foreign power…no interest whatsoever.
Second, I have been of the opinion for some time that the central issue underlying the FISA abuse was the Obama Administration’s use of expanded FISA 702 collection, retention, and searchable database along with “relaxed” standards for the un-masking of United States Persons inadvertently collected upon as a tool for monitoring the communications of the Administration’s domestic opponents. It seems that sundance of the Conservative Treehouse agrees with me.

The prior use of FBI and NSA networks for metadata exploitation and political surveillance is what underlines all of the current activity taking place within the current political battle. Peel all of the layers of investigative schemes, intelligence deception, false and distracting media narratives -including Mueller- and what lies beneath it all is the weaponized use of database-collected material for political surveillance and exploitation.
It really is that simple.
But the trail is convoluted and heavily redacted.
Helping to shed light on those blacked out passages is our…

The DNC lawsuit against Russia and the Trump Campaign provides for a new timeline of events. And raises new questions.
Recall, the DNC famously refused to allow the FBI to examine their servers – which has always seemed more than a bit odd.
If the DNC had definitive proof of Russian hacking, one would expect a standing invitation to examine the evidence. Instead, they have protected those servers from any outside examination.
This may be tied to NSA Director Rogers’ discovery of Outside Contractors.
The generalized story is that the DNC was hacked in April 2016. This is not accurate. Nor is the DNC’s timeline of events complete.
Read the whole thing. There are too many coincidences of date and time for this to be anything other than enemy action.
