Deep State Is Being Revealed
The Trump Russian Collusion Investigation is starting to move in a new direction after the House Committee discovered the FBI had a spy planted inside of the Trump campaign on top of the illegal wiretaps.
There is new breaking evidence that the Barack Obama Administration was wiretapping and listening in on all of the Trump campaign and transition team calls.
We now know his Deep State minions had a spy inside the Trump campaign!
Kimberly Strassel, an American author, journalist, and member of the Wall Street Journal editorial board dropped a bombshell in a Wall Street Journal article titled, “About That FBI Source.”
Strassel, referring to a Washington Post story using ‘unnamed law-enforcement leakers’ according to House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes’s request dealing with a “top secret intelligence source” may very well mean the FBI had a plant inside the Trump camp.
Thanks to the Washington Post’s unnamed law-enforcement leakers, we know Mr. Nunes’s request deals with a “top secret intelligence source” of the FBI and CIA, who is a U.S. citizen and who was involved in the Russia collusion probe. This might mean that the FBI secretly had a person on the payroll who used his or her non-FBI credentials to interact in some capacity with the Trump campaign.
Everybody wants to know who this plant was and who he was funneling information to inside various government agencies.
Paul Sperry who is an Investigative reporter for The New York Post, says “in the summer of 2016, former CIA Director John Brennan, through his FBI liaison, Peter Strzok, with the help of former Secretary of State John Kerry were trying to set Russian espionage traps for minor players in the Trump campaign through cultivated intel assets. He has been exposed as a CIA and M-16 spy behind the FBI Russia gate investigations of the Trump Campaign and is an informant to the Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller”.
Here’s what we know about John Kerry’s involvement with Hillary’s phony Russia dossier so far:
Byron York of the Washington Examiner previously reported that the Obama State Department was being probed as to whether or not they had a hand in the dossier. York notes Steele was viewed inside the Obama State Department as a valuable source for intelligence on all things Russia. Obama State officials made a habit of disseminating reports the former British spy authored for private clients around the Department.
Sara Carter reported in March that John Kerry was officially under investigation by the House Select Committee on Intelligence for his possible role into the unverified Steele dossier paid for by the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton Campaign. The dossier, assembled by a former British spy, laid the foundation for the FBI’s investigation into alleged collusion between President Trump and Russia and was the essential piece of evidence used by the FBI to get a warrant to spy on a former volunteer for the Trump campaign.
Chairman Nunes is also investigating whether former CIA Director John Brennan perjured himself in a public testimony about the dossier. Brennan testified before the intelligence panel in May 2017 and emphatically denied the dossier factored into the intelligence community’s publicly released conclusion last year that Russia meddled in the 2016 election “to help Trump’s chances of victory.”
Brennan With Strzok And John Kerry, worked To Set Up Russian Espionage Traps For Minor Players In Trump Camp. Brennan also swore that he did not know who commissioned the anti-Trump research document , even though senior national security and counterintelligence officials at the Justice Department and FBI knew the previous year that the dossier was funded by the Hillary Clinton campaign.
Peter Strzok was removed from Mueller’s team after anti-Trump text messages were discovered by the Inspector General.
Strzok and McCabe set up a surprise FBI interview with General Flynn which led to his firing; Flynn then pleaded guilty for lying to the FBI.
It has since been revealed that the other agent involved in the Flynn interview was FBI Special Agent Joe Pientka, who was with Strzok during his White House interview on Jan. 24, 2017.
Sara Carter said that according to numerous law enforcement sources, neither Strzok or Pientka believed Flynn was lying during their interview with him. Special Agent Joe Pientka and another “non-partisan” law enforcement officer who was present in the Flynn interview can reveal McCabe’s role in all of it.
Rumors are flying and a few names are being thrown around about who this possible FBI plant may be, but once it’s revealed, all hell is going to break loose.
The Department of Justice lost its latest battle with Congress Thursday when it agreed to brief House Intelligence Committee members about a top-secret intelligence source that was part of the FBI’s investigation of the Trump campaign. Even without official confirmation of that source’s name, the news so far holds some stunning implications.
Among them is that the Justice Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation outright hid critical information from a congressional investigation. In a Thursday press conference, Speaker Paul Ryan bluntly noted that Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes’s request for details on this secret source was “wholly appropriate,” “completely within the scope” of the committee’s long-running FBI investigation, and “something that probably should have been answered a while ago.” Translation: The department knew full well it should have turned this material over to congressional investigators last year, but instead deliberately concealed it.
House investigators nonetheless sniffed out a name, and Mr. Nunes in recent weeks issued a letter and a subpoena demanding more details. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s response was to double down—accusing the House of “extortion” and delivering a speech in which he claimed that “declining to open the FBI’s files to review” is a constitutional “duty.” Justice asked the White House to back its stonewall. And it even began spinning that daddy of all superspook arguments—that revealing any detail about this particular asset could result in “loss of human lives.”
This is desperation, and it strongly suggests that whatever is in these files is going to prove very uncomfortable to the FBI.
The bureau already has some explaining to do. Thanks to the Washington Post’s unnamed law-enforcement leakers, we know Mr. Nunes’s request deals with a “top secret intelligence source” of the FBI and CIA, who is a U.S. citizen and who was involved in the Russia collusion probe. When government agencies refer to sources, they mean people who appear to be average citizens but use their profession or contacts to spy for the agency. Ergo, we might take this to mean that the FBI secretly had a person on the payroll who used his or her non-FBI credentials to interact in some capacity with the Trump campaign.
This would amount to spying, and it is hugely disconcerting. It would also be a major escalation from the electronic surveillance we already knew about, which was bad enough. Obama political appointees rampantly “unmasked” Trump campaign officials to monitor their conversations, while the FBI played dirty with its surveillance warrant against Carter Page, failing to tell the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court that its supporting information came from the Hillary Clinton campaign.
That leads to another big question for the FBI: When? The bureau has been doggedly sticking with its story that a tip in July 2016 about the drunken ramblings of George Papadopoulos launched its counterintelligence probe. Still, the players in this affair—the FBI, former Director Jim Comey, the Steele dossier authors—have been suspiciously vague on the key moments leading up to that launch date. When precisely was the Steele dossier delivered to the FBI? When precisely did the Papadopoulos information come in?
And to that point, when precisely was this human source operating? Because if it was prior to that infamous Papadopoulos tip, then the FBI isn’t being straight. It would mean the bureau was spying on the Trump campaign prior to that moment. And that in turn would mean that the FBI had been spurred to act on the basis of something other than a junior campaign aide’s loose lips.
We also know that among the Justice Department’s stated reasons for not complying with the Nunes subpoena was its worry that to do so might damage international relationships. This suggests the “source” may be overseas, have ties to foreign intelligence, or both. That’s notable, given the highly suspicious role foreigners have played in this escapade. It was an Australian diplomat who reported the Papadopoulos conversation. Dossier author Christopher Steele is British, used to work for MI6, and retains ties to that spy agency as well as to a network of former spooks. It was a former British diplomat who tipped off Sen. John McCain to the dossier. How this “top secret” source fits into this puzzle could matter deeply.
No wonder why Rosenstein is fiercely working to keep documents from the House Intel Committee and House Oversight Committee.
Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) sent a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray and Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein Friday stating Comey testified the FBI didn’t think General Flynn lied.
Grassley also revealed Joe Pientka was the second FBI agent who joined Peter Strzok on January 24th, 2017 in an ambush style interview to take down General Flynn.
Grassley is demanding the FBI and DOJ produce the transcript of Flynn’s intercepted calls with Russian Ambassador Kislyak and the 302’s by May 25th.
302’s are reports FBI agents take to summarize an interview with a subject.
The newly unredacted portion of the House Intel report revealed Comey testified to House Intel members the FBI agents who ambushed Flynn did not detect any deception.
The report also revealed the illegal leak of Flynn’s phone call with Kislyak is what allowed the FBI/DOJ to keep a counter intel operation open on General Flynn.
Chairman Grassley is now demanding answers from the FBI and DOJ.
In the last paragraph of Grassley’s letter, he requests Special Agent Joe Pientka be available for a transcribed interview with Committee staff, no later than May 25, 2018, and to provide:
1. The information requested in our February 15, 2017 letter, including the transcripts of the reportedly intercepted calls and any FBI reports summarizing them; and
2. The FBI agents’ 302s memorializing their interview of Flynn and 1A supporting docs, including the agents’ notes and to have Special Agent Joe Pientka available for a transcribed interview with Committee staff no later than one week following the production of the requested documents.
“There’s a lot these agents can reveal about that day and what (former FBI Deputy Director Andrew) McCabe’s role was in all of it,” said a U.S. official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak on the matter.
McCabe was apparently trying to find a reason, any reason, to make it look like Flynn was lying. But the truth of the matter is – no one thought he lied, not even the agent that hated Trump.”
Crooked Comey continues to contradict his testimony as he travels around on his book tour.
James Comey has told Bret Baier, George Stephanopoulos and Chuck Todd conflicting statements about General Flynn’s interview with FBI agents.
Notice how carefully weasel Comey talks in media blitzes ‘not to my recollection’ or ‘I don’t remember intending to say that.’
Byron York reported:
Comey has been asked about the matter in some of the publicity interviews he has given for his new book, A Higher Loyalty. In those interviews, Comey has denied telling lawmakers that the agents who interviewed Flynn did not believe Flynn had lied.
“No,” Comey told Fox News’ Bret Baier. “I don’t know what — maybe someone misunderstood something I said. I didn’t believe that and didn’t say that.”
“Not true,” Comey told NBC’s Chuck Todd.
“I don’t know where that’s coming from,” Comey told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos. “That — unless I’m — I said something that people misunderstood, I don’t remember even intending to say that. So my recollection is I never said that to anybody.”
