It’s been an interesting week on the Russian Collusion / FISA Abuse front. I find that I am not the only person who finds the Washington comPost‘s article on a Grand Jury Investigation of fired FBI Deputy Director McCabe:
Federal prosecutors have for months been using a grand jury to investigate former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe — an indication the probe into whether he misled officials exploring his role in a controversial media disclosure has intensified, two people familiar with the matter said.
The grand jury has summoned more than one witness, the people said, and the case is ongoing. The people declined to identify those who had been called to testify.
The presence of the grand jury shows prosecutors are treating the matter seriously, locking in the accounts of witnesses who might later have to testify at a trial. But such panels are sometimes used only as investigative tools, and it remains unclear if McCabe will ultimately be charged. (read more)
And the Tired Gray Crone of Gotham‘s “Anonymous” guest editorial (really?)
I Am Part of the Resistance Inside the Trump Administration
I work for the president but like-minded colleagues and I have vowed to thwart parts of his agenda and his worst inclinations.
Are best viewed as moves by the Praetor’s Deep State Derp State to prepare the public opinion battle space for some damaging news. Note also that the most significant aspect of the slimes “Guest Editorial” is a confirmation that the Derp State is real, and not the fevered conspiracy theory they have been dismissing it as.
Here are the relevant issues they want you to ignore.
First, we have additional evidence of the intelligence laundering that became the Steele / Clinton Dossier.
Congressional Sources Confirm Timeline of Bruce Ohr, Chris Steele and FBI Contacts With Andrew McCabe, Lisa Page and Peter Strzok…
By sundance, the Coservative Treehouse
Whoa Nellie… Ding, Ding, Ding…
Within the massive assembly of documents, emails, text messages, congressional testimony and portions of media reports a clear timeline emerged. Part of that timeline was based on the fact that certain events had to have taken place -at specific times- in order to reconcile the downstream activity.
From that circumstantial timeline CTH was able to assemble a graphic to help understand how corrupt DOJ and FBI officials had to have used information from Fusion-GPS, Nellie Ohr and Christopher Steele; passed on to Bruce Ohr in the DOJ; then delivered to Peter Strzok (FBI) for exploitation eventually culminating in the October 21st, 2016, Title-1 FISA warrant against U.S. Person Carter Page.
The key point of the graphic, which ran counter to all MSM reporting, was a trail of circumstantial evidence showing Bruce Ohr had to have been in contact with Christopher Steele much earlier than anyone realized.
Indeed. It seems that Bruce’s wife Nellie had been working with FusionGPS since 2015, and that Bruce contacted the FBI on behalf of Steele in July of 2016.
Ohr’s account to Congress and his contemporaneous notes show he had multiple contacts with Steele in July 2016. One occurred just before Steele visited the FBI in Rome, another right after Steele made the contact.
A third contact occurred July 30, 2016, exactly one day before the FBI and its counterintelligence official, Peter Strzok, opened the Trump probe [Crosssfire Hurricane] officially.
Steele met with Ohr and Ohr’s wife, Nellie, in a Washington hotel restaurant for breakfast. At the time, Nellie Ohr and Steele worked for the same employer, Simpson’s Fusion GPS opposition research firm, and on the same project to uncover Russia dirt on Trump, according to prior testimony to Congress.
Three contacts rules out coincidence. As we dig deeper in this it becomes increasingly clear that this is all enemy action. Clearly the DoJ and FBI are hiding behind Classification and Ongoing Criminal Investigations to prevent further damage.
By sundance, the Coservative Treehouse
The congressional request is for President Trump to declassify and release the Carter Page FISA applications (including specifically pages 10-12 and 17-34 and relevant footnotes), all of the Bruce Ohr 302s and other relevant documents, including exculpatory evidence regarding Carter Page and others, that were presented to the Gang of Eight, but not presented to the FISA Court.
At first glance it appears to be a simple request right? However, it is anything but simple for a lot of reasons.
First, here’s a link to the General Principles of declassification [SEE HERE] Yes, the President can declassify anything; however, there is a process that must be followed.
It’s getting to the point where the President needs to start issuing direct orders and firing those who fail to comply.
