    Former Vice President Joe Biden was reportedly one of the few Obama administration officials who participated in secretive meetings during the early stages of the Obama-era intelligence community’s initial operations regarding suspected Russian interference in the 2016 presidential campaign.

    That tidbit was contained deep inside a 7,700-plus word Washington Post article published June 23, 2017 in which the newspaper also detailed the highly compartmentalized nature of the original Russia interference investigation and the manner in which other U.S. intelligence agencies were deliberately kept in the dark. Part of the efforts eventually involved unsubstantiated and ultimately discredited charges made by the Christopher Steele dossier that Trump campaign officials were colluding with Russia.
    Biden’s largely unreported role in the initial Obama administration meetings on the matter of Russian interference could spark further questions now that Attorney General William Barr has appointed a U.S. attorney to investigate the origins of the Russia collusion claims.
    Only last week, Barr commented that the intelligence community’s early handling of the Russia investigation may itself raise questions. He noted that it was first handled at a “very senior level” and then by a “small group.”
    In an interview on Fox News, Barr stated:
    The thing that’s interesting about this is that this was handled at a very senior level of these departments. It wasn’t handled in the ordinary way that investigations or counterintelligence activities are conducted. It was sort of an ad hoc, small group — and most of these people are no longer with the FBI or the CIA or the other agencies involved. I think there’s a misconception out there that we know a lot about what happened. The fact of the matter is, Bob Mueller did not look at the government’s activities.
    The lengthy Washington Post article from 2017 detailed the closed circle of Obama administration officials who were involved in overseeing the initial efforts related to the Russia investigation — a circle than was narrowly widened to include Biden, according to the newspaper report.
    According to the newspaper, in the summer of 2016, CIA Director John Brennan convened a “secret task force at CIA headquarters composed of several dozen analysts and officers from the CIA, the NSA and the FBI.”
    The Post described the unit as so secretive it functioned as a “sealed compartment” hidden even from the rest of the U.S. intelligence community; a unit whose workers were all made to sign additional non-disclosure forms.
    The unit reported to top officials, the newspaper documented:
    They worked exclusively for two groups of “customers,” officials said. The first was Obama and fewer than 14 senior officials in government. The second was a team of operations specialists at the CIA, NSA and FBI who took direction from the task force on where to aim their subsequent efforts to collect more intelligence on Russia.
    The number of Obama administration officials who were allowed access to the Russia intelligence was also highly limited, The Post reported. At first only four senior officials were involved, and not Biden. Those officials were CIA Directir John Brennan, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, Attorney General Loretta Lynch and then-FBI Director James Comey. Their aides were all barred from attending the initial meetings, The Post stated.
    The circle of those who attended the secretive meetings on the matter soon widened to include Biden, The Post reported (emphasis added):
    The secrecy extended into the White House.
    Rice and White House homeland-security adviser Lisa Monaco convened meetings in the Situation Room to weigh the mounting evidence of Russian interference and generate options for how to respond. At first, only four senior security officials were allowed to attend: Brennan, Clapper, Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch and FBI Director James B. Comey. Aides ordinarily allowed entry as “plus-ones” were barred.
    Gradually, the circle widened to include Vice President Biden and others. Agendas sent to Cabinet secretaries — including John F. Kerry at the State Department and Ashton B. Carter at the Pentagon — arrived in envelopes that subordinates were not supposed to open. Sometimes the agendas were withheld until participants had taken their seats in the Situation Room.
    Adding another layer of secrecy, the newspaper reported that when the closed Cabinet sessions on Russia began in the White House Situation Room in August, the video feed from the main room was cut off during the meetings.
    The feed, which allows only for video and not audio, is usually kept on so that senior aides can see when a meeting takes place.
    The paper reported:
    The blacked-out screens were seen as an ominous sign among lower-level White House officials who were largely kept in the dark about the Russia deliberations even as they were tasked with generating options for retaliation against Moscow.
    It was not clear what went on inside those meetings and how many included Biden’s participation. The meetings progressed during the period that the Steele dossier was reported to the FBI.


    Last year, meanwhile, Biden publically defended the Obama administration’s handling of the Russia probe amid accusations that the Obama White House didn’t do enough and waited until after the election to make the Russia interference charges public.
    “I’m sure I’m leaving stuff out,” Biden said last January at a speech to the Council on Foreign Relations. “The bottom line was it was tricky as hell. It’s easy to say now, well maybe we should have said more. But I’ll ask you a rhetorical question — can you imagine if the President of the United States called a press conference in October … and said, ‘Tell you what, the Russians are trying to interfere with our elections and we have to do something about it.’ What do you think would have happened?”
    Trump, however, previously suggested Obama’s not being forceful enough on the matter was politically motivated.

    Neon Revolt has an interesting article today detailing the Italians involvement in Spygate. How the FBI tried to plant Hillary’s emails on 2 Italian owned servers in America. The plan was for the FBI to raid the sites, open the servers and find the emails and somehow tie it in to Trump. Basically plant evidence to set him up. All happened in May 2017 at the time Comey was fired, McCabe was shunted aside and Mueller was appointed (chosen) to lead the ‘investigation’. Some very interesting links between Italian and American intelligence, featuring Mifsud and PapaD (and his wife).

    Cluster$#@! Nation - The Golem Strikes Back

    https://kunstler.com/cluster$#@!-nat...-strikes-back/

    May 24, 2019


    Not long ago, few Americans of the thinking persuasion might have imagined that such a well-engineered republic, with its exquisite checks and balances, sturdy institutions, and time-tested traditions would end up as so much smoldering goop in a national dumpster fire, but such is the sad state-of-the-union moving into the fateful summer of 2019. The castle of the permanent bureaucracy is about to be torched by an uprising of deplorable peasants led by a Golden Golem made furious by relentless litigation. Itís Game of Thrones meets the Thermidorian Reaction with a Weimar-flavored cherry on top ó really one for the ages!

    Thereís perhaps a lot to dislike about Donald J. Trump, US President No. 45. Despite all the grooming and tailoring, thereís little savoir faire there. He tweets not like a mellifluous songbird, but in snorts like a rooting aardvark. His every predilection is an affront to the refined Washington establishment: his dark business history, his beloved ormolu trappings, his Mickey-D cheeseburgers, the mystifying hair-doo.

    Even so, the bad faith of his antagonists exceeds even Mr. Trumpís defects and vices. The plot they concocted to get rid of him failed. And, yes, it was a plot, even a coup. And they $#@!ed it up magnificently, leaving a paper trail as wide as Interstate-95. Now all that paper is about to fall over the District of Columbia like radioactive ash, turning many current and former denizens of rogue agencies into the walking dead as they embark on the dismal journey between the grand juries and the federal prisons.

    Hence, the desperate rage of the impeachment faction, in direct proportion to their secret shameful knowledge that the entire RussiaGate melodrama was, in fact, a seditious subterfuge between the Hillary Clinton campaign and a great many key figures in government up-to-and-including former president Barack Obama, who could not have failed to be clued-in on all the action. Even before the declassification order, the true narrative of events has been plainly understood: that the US Intel ďcommunityĒ trafficked in fictitious malarkey supplied by Mrs. Clinton to illegally ďmeddleĒ in the 2016 election.

    Most of the facts are already documented. Only a few details remain to be confirmed: for instance, whether international man-of-mystery and entrapment artist Josef Mifsud was in the employ of the CIA, and/or Britainís MI6, and/or Mrs. Clintonís Fusion GPS contractor (or Christopher Steeleís Orbis Business Intelligence company, a subcontractor to both Fusion GPS and the FBI). Questions will now be asked ó though not by The New York Times.

    The evidence already public indicates that Robert Mueller must have known as early as the date of his appointment (and likely before) that the predicating evidence for his inquiry was false. After all, his soon-to-be lead prosecutor, Andrew Weissmann, was informed of that in no uncertain terms by his DOJ colleague, Deputy Attorney General Bruce Ohr, in 2016. Justice may seek to know why Mr. Mueller did not inform the target of his inquiry that this was so. The answer to that may be that Mr. Muellerís true mission was to disable Mr. Trump as long as possible while setting an obstruction of justice trap ó which also failed tactically.

    Notice that Mr. Mueller declined to testify before the House Judiciary Committee last week. Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) was a fool to invite him. Did he not know that minority members of his committee get to ask questions too?

    In an interesting turn of the screw last week, polling showed that a majority of those asked were in favor of investigations into the origin of the RussiaGate story. The FBI, being an agency under the direct supervision of the Attorney General, will be hosed out for sure. The CIA, on the other hand, has a sordid history of acting as a sovereign state within the state ó hence the derivation of the Deep State. They are renowned for protecting their own. Remember, the Senate Minority Leader, Mr. Schumer, snidely told the incoming President Trump at the get-go that the Intel community ďhas six ways from Sunday at getting back at you.Ē I guess weíll finally get to see about that because the CIAís former director, the wicked Mr. Brennan, is grand jury bound. I suspect he will not be protected by his former colleagues. His downfall may presage a more thorough cleanup, and perhaps a major reorganization, of this monstrous agency.

    The indictment of Julian Assange adds a big wrinkle to these upcoming proceedings. Apart for what it means to First Amendment protection for a free press (no small matter), Mr. Assange is the one person who actually knows who handed over the ďhackedĒ DNC emails to Wikileaks. Perhaps getting the answer to that question is the real reason that the DOJ is throwing the book at him. The trial of Mr. Assange is sure to be a humdinger.

    Iím convinced, personally, that all this melodrama will play out against the background of a cratering global economy, tanking financial markets, and epic disruption of the established international order. Consider laying in some supplies.

    They're starting to panic. The Deep State coup-tards are pointing fingers and crying foul, desperate to distract attention from President Trump's "un-American" efforts to uncover the reality behind the US intelligence agencies' "spying" on his campaign and efforts (which appear to go to the very top) to unseat a democratically-elected leader of the free world.
    This morning, it was former CIA Director John Brennan's turn as he seemed upset at a cartoon that President Trump tweeted last night...
    Young people everywhere: Please do not emulate Mr. Trump’s very immature behavior. Find others of honesty, integrity, & decency to be your role models. And always try to do what you know is the right thing, even when doing what is right is both unpopular & difficult. https://t.co/DptZcfk1Z1
    — John O. Brennan (@JohnBrennan) May 24, 2019
    Which got us thinking... Has the mainstream media always been so trustful and genuflective of the US intelligence agencies or was there a time (before Trump) that the press did their job and questioned the elites?
    It turns out there was... in 2014.
    In March of that year, Senator Dianne Feinstein lashed out at the CIA for spying (yes that word!!) on Congress on Senate Intel Committee:
    “I have grave concerns that the CIA’s search may well have violated the separation of powers principles embodied in the United States Constitution,” she said. “I have asked for an apology and a recognition that this CIA search of computers used by its oversight committee was inappropriate. I have received neither.”
    “The facts will come out,” Brennan told NBC News in March after Feinstein's comments “Let me assure you the CIA was in no way spying on [the committee] or the Senate,” he said.
    But, as the truth hit, in July 2014, none other than The Washington Post printed a story lambasting the lies gushing forth from then CIA Director Brennan's and Director of National Intelligence James Clapper.

    An apology and an internal review board might suffice if this were Brennan or intelligence leaders’ first offense, but the track record is far from spotless...
    ...And last year, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper lied under oath to Congress when he told Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) and the Senate Intelligence Committee that the National Security Agency did not collect any kind of data on millions of Americans, a claim later disproved by documents leaked by former NSA employee Edward Snowden...
    ...Sadly, it’s unlikely that this latest incident will encourage Obama to finally induce some accountability in the intelligence community: White House press secretary Josh Earnest called the CIA’s illegal activities mere “misunderstandings.” But as Brennan said when he denied the allegations, “if I did something wrong…he is the one who can ask me to stay or to go.” It’s time for Obama to take that responsibility head-on and start to restore in U.S. intelligence agencies some semblance of responsibility to the Constitution and the public.
    The Guardian echoed WaPo's storyline, demanding Obama "Fire Him" in a news column (not an op-ed)...

    As reports emerged Thursday that an internal investigation by the Central Intelligence Agency’s inspector general found that the CIA “improperly” spied on US Senate staffers when researching the CIA’s dark history of torture, it was hard to conclude anything but the obvious: John Brennan blatantly lied to the American public. Again...
    ...Brennan also fed the public wildly inaccurate details about the Osama bin Laden raid in 2011, and despite condemning leaks of classified information from others, he has often leaks classified information himself to suit his own needs. This is not the type of guy who is going to resign because of some report he doesn’t like; this is the type of spy who apologizes even though he’s not sorry, who lies because he doesn’t like to tell the truth.
    Those are not the words of the Deep State's mouthpiece any more, rather they would be attacked by all on the left as some conspiracy theorist right-wing extremist's view that is attempting to collapse the very heart of America's democracy.
    But, it gets better. Later that year, The Atlantic produced a timeline of all the lies Brennan had told, concluding that he had used "false information" to his own ends...

    " The report by the agency’s inspector general also found that C.I.A. officers read the emails of the Senate investigators and sent a criminal referral to the Justice Department based on false information."
    Sounds familiar (cough FISA cough).
    We will give the last word to The Guardian from 2014 (which appears quite different in tone to The Guardian from 2019):
    "Lest we forget, Brennan’s most recent false statement is not his first James Clapper-esque experiment in misinformation. The nation’s top spy is, in fact, a proficient and skilled liar...
    ...The National Security Agency and the Central Intelligence Agency have been allowed to lie brazenly to Congress, the courts and the public for far too long. It’s far past time for the Obama administration to bring a little accountability to the intelligence community. It’s time for Barack Obama to fire John Brennan."
    Sadly, for the increasingly divided state of America, Obama did not.

    Trump Targets UK, Australia And Ukraine Over 'Greatest Hoax In The History Of Our Country'
    https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-...ax-history-our

    President Trump on Friday said that he wants Attorney General William Barr to investigate the UK, Australia and Ukraine for their roles in the 'greatest hoax in the history of our country.'

    Trump discussed his decision this week to issue a sweeping declassification order - leaving it in the hands of Barr to determine exactly what happened to Trump and his campaign before and after the 2016 US election.

    "For over a year, people have asked me to declassify. What I've done is declassified everything," said Trump, adding "He can look and I hope he looks at the UK and I hope he looks at Australia and I hope he looks at Ukraine."

    "It's the greatest hoax probably in the history of our country and somebody has to get to the bottom of it. We'll see. For a long period of time, they wanted me to declassify and I did."


    Joseph Mifsud, George Papadopoulos

    U gno and I gno it's STILL going to be whitewashing a tomb.
    NO ONE is going to roll away the stone and expose the fetid stench lurking just beneath.
    Not going to happen. ever.
    weapons (still) going one way....
    drugs & uranium & trafficking/pedophilia (still) going the other under diplomatic/military/FBI cover.
    The real question is: WHY the coup.... not how & not who. The 'democrats' were baited and they bit. It gave the REAL treachery 'cover'.

    Yeah the thing that stood out to me the most about this is John Brennan still hasn't had his security clearance revoked and is supposedly advising these people not to follow the presidents orders and to ignore them. I think we should impeach president John Brennan.

    BREAKING: Ex-FBI Director James Comey never used a grand jury to investigate the Russian interference/collusion "crimes" he said he was investigating, raising suspicions he was more interested in spying on the Trump camp & transition than solving alleged crimes related to Russia

    BREAKING: The stunning fact that Comey never convened a criminal grand jury between Jan. 24, 2017 (when Flynn ambushed at WH) and May 9, 2017 (when Comey fired) reveals that the FBI never really had a criminal case against Flynn

    Following President Trump's decision to allow the declassification of key Russia records at Attorney General Bill Barr's discretion, former Trump campaign aide Carter Page told Fox News his contact with alleged FBI informant Stefan Halper at a pivotal period in the Russia probe was more extensive than previously reported.
    Separately, Fox News has learned congressional investigators have been renewing their focus on a text message sent nine days before the government's Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) application to monitor Page, in which then-FBI agent Peter Strzok and FBI lawyer Lisa Page questioned "who's playing games," "scared" and "covering."
    Carter Page said he first met Halper in July 2016 after receiving an invitation to an overseas seminar. He added that his contact with Halper continued for more than a year through September 2017, after Special Counsel Robert Mueller was appointed to investigate potential collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian actors.
    Page said that "during that period, amidst frequent terror threats," Halper was one of the few people he felt comfortable confiding in. "He [Halper] was one of the few people who would talk to me. He seemed understanding of my predicament and the incessant personal security risks that stemmed from the (Democratic National Committee) consultants' false reports."

    Page confirmed to Fox News that he visited Halper's farm in Northern Virginia several times beginning in August 2016 -- starting three weeks after Strzok officially opened the FBI counterintelligence probe into possible Russian election interference in late July. On October 21, 2016, the FBI and DOJ obtained a surveillance warrant to monitor Page.

    Fox News asked Page if he made any statements to Halper, during this period, that would show he was not acting on behalf of Russia, or would refuse to act on behalf of the Russian government.

    "I'm sure Russia came up," Page responded. "We talked international relations. It must have. ... I can't imagine anything I said could conceivably lead to a FISA."


    The text referencing "who's playing games" and "covering" was released last year, but Fox News recently confirmed the names hidden beneath redactions. They included a senior FBI lawyer, as well as the FBI agent "Gaeta" -- believed to be a principal handler for the dossier and its author, British ex-spy Christopher Steele.
    "This is why declassification is so important, so Americans can finally see for themselves all the facts about how the Russia hoax began and how it spread," California GOP Rep. Devin Nunes told Fox News.


    The Strzok-Page text was sent on Oct. 13, 2016, during a tense period eight days before the FBI and DOJ secured a surveillance warrant for Page. Hours earlier, on Oct. 12, texts exclusively obtained by Fox News showed Page complaining to her boss, then-Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe, about the apparent reluctance of a Justice Department official to approve the Page surveillance application.
    And, within hours of that exchange, a senior state department official, Kathleen Kavalec, had emailed her FBI counterpart about information provided to her by Steele -- an apparent breach of the former spy's work as a confidential human source for the bureau. Confidential human sources ordinarily do not reach out to multiple government agencies.
    In the Oct.13 text to Page, Strzok wrote: "We got the reporting on Sept 19. Looks like [Gaeta] got it early August. Looking at [Clinesmith] lync [internal messaging service] replies to me it's not clear if he knows if/when he told them. But [Steve] and [Kate] talked with [Spencer] they're both good and will remember. It's not about rubbing their nose in it. I don't care if they don't know. I just want to know who's playing games/scared covering. totally get it will never be provable."
    Based on Lisa Page's 2018 closed-door congressional testimony, Gaeta is believed to be the FBI agent who met with Steele in the summer of 2016 obtaining the first memos in early July. "Clinesmith" is believed to be then-FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith.
    It was not clear from the texts whether "Steve" and "Kate" refer to FBI or State Department employees.
    "Spencer's" identity is unknown but has remained of significant interest to congressional investigators who have questioned whether he operated outside of the FBI and DOJ, potentially as part of the intelligence community.


    "OI [Office of Intelligence] now has a robust explanation re any possible bias of the chs [confidential human source] in the package," Lisa Page wrote to McCabe on the evening of Oct. 12, 2016. "Don't know what the holdup is now, other than Stu's continued concerns."
    It's unclear whether the confidential source in question was Steele or another individual. "Stu" was an apparent reference to Stuart Evans, then the DOJ's National Security Division deputy assistant attorney general.
    "Strong operational need to have in place before Monday if at all possible, which means to CT tomorrow," Page added. "I communicated you and boss's green light to Stu earlier, and just sent an email to Stu asking where things stood. This might take a high-level push. Will keep you posted."

    Minutes later, Page sent another urgent text to McCabe: "If I have not heard back from Stu in an hour, I will invoke your name to say you want to know where things are, so long as that is okay with you."

    CIA Officer Kevin Shipp says, “This was NSA domestic surveillance, and it’s been going on since before 9/11. It increased after 9/11… This leads all the way to Barack Obama and, of course, Hillary Clinton. Hillary Clinton being the blackmailer extraordinaire and Barack Obama. . . . They were using this power to intimidate others and probably to blackmail others . . . that’s exactly what they were doing. . . . They were all engaging in flagrant criminal activity.”
