    House Intelligence memo released: What it says
    by Byron York | Feb 2, 2018, 11:48 AM

    The House Intelligence Committee has released its controversial memo outlining alleged abuses of secret surveillance by the FBI and Justice Department in the Trump-Russia investigation. Here are some key points:

    * The Steele dossier formed an essential part of the initial and all three renewal FISA applications against Carter Page.

    * Andrew McCabe confirmed that no FISA warrant would have been sought from the FISA Court without the Steele dossier information.

    * The political origins of the Steele dossier were known to senior DOJ and FBI officials, but excluded from the FISA applications.

    * DOJ official Bruce Ohr met with Steele beginning in the summer of 2016 and relayed to DOJ information about Steele's bias. Steele told Ohr that he, Steele, was desperate that Donald Trump not get elected president and was passionate about him not becoming president.

    Summary:

    They target Carter Page , an adviser to the Trump campaign. On Oct. 26, 2016 there was a FISC application, which comes after FISA applications. It allows for full electronic survellience. This opens up all communications that Page might have with anyone else. Keep in mind, this would include campaign conference calls and emails or messages that included Page. This alone qualifies as spying on the Trump campaign.

    Named as responsible: Comey, McCabe, Yates, Boente, Rosenstein.

    These FISA and FISC applications were based upon the Steele Dossier. Steele was working with Bruce Ohr and his wife. Ohr worked for Yates and later Rosenstein. Steele was leaking to the media, and was an extreme #Nevertrump partisan.

    In July 2016, Peter Strzok opened an investigation into George Papadopolous, because his name was in the original Page FISA application. There was no evidence of Papadopolous being involved in anything, yet the mere mention of his name was enough to investigate him.

    This is "Just the Beginning"....

    unmasking the:
    Department of Justice: Rogue 4th Branch of Government




    Today it is worthwhile remembering this is the beginning of exposing the corruption within the DOJ not the end.

    The U.S. Justice Department was/is an independent fourth branch of government;
    unaccountable to congress and functioning entirely separate from the executive branch.

    The U.S. justice department has maintained an attitude of non-accountability within its ranks and the Obama years elevated that attitude...
    providing multiple examples of a DOJ gone rogue.


    OPENING THE DOOR

    The House Intelligence Memo is simply using the example of currently known FISA abuse to open the door....
    behind that door are the realities of those who constructed the weaponized agency; and also those who have benefited from it.

    Consider:

    ♦When IRS head Lois Learner unlawfully sent the 21 CD-ROM’s containing the “Schedule B” filings of over a million Americans to the Obama administration, the recipient was the DOJ. LINK It was the DOJ who was chosen to utilize the political lists in their “Secret Research Project“. ♦When U.S. District Court Judge Andrew Hanen demanded DOJ lawyers attend ethics classes due to their false representations to his court – he was highlighting a corrupt DOJ. LINK

    ♦When the case against the Bundy family was recently thrown out of court, it was the “gross malicious conduct” of the DOJ highlighted by the judge. LINK



    This is the same DOJ who denied their own Office of Inspector General, Michael Horowitz, the right to conduct oversight on DOJ internal action. LINK
    The expressed Justice Department intent in every action has been an attempt to remain unaccountable.

    The U.S. Justice Department has become a rogue agency weaponized against it’s political opposition in almost every jurisdiction...
    the epicenter of that attitude balks at the concept of having oversight, and thumbs their nose at congress by refusing to turn over the underlying FISA application documents.





    How DARE They??

    This is a corrupted and defiant system being defended by a political media apparatus who have benefited from seeing their opposition targeted.

    The American people became the threat to their system. The American people became their enemy.

    This is exactly the way the DOJ behaves.

    ►The House Intelligence Committee, Chairman Devin Nunes, has oversight over the entire intelligence apparatus, including DOJ/FBI counterintelligence and the FISA Courts.

    ►The House Judiciary Committee, Chairman Bob Goodlatte, has statutory oversight over the entire Department of Justice.

    ►The Senate Judiciary Committee, Chairman Chuck Grassley, has oversight over the federal court processes used by the U.S. Department of Justice.

    ►The Office of Inspector General, Michael Horowitz, is the internal DOJ watchdog.









    L@@K AT THE DEFIANCE!








    THE 'CURE': REMOVE THEIR INTERNAL 'IMAGE' OF UNACCOUNTABILITY

    The release of the House Intelligence Memo is only the tip of the iceberg; the crack in the door to see just how corrupt the unaccountable Justice System became.

    There are going to be many more revelations as the investigations into the FBI and DOJ continue.
    Combine that understanding with the pending OIG Horowitz report, and we have only just begun to see how bad this is…

    The key aspect to begin restoring a system when it has fallen into the clutches of corruption, is to remove their internal image of unaccountability.
    The DOJ and FBI are part of the Executive Branch and they are accountable to congressional oversight.

    We need to constantly remind people of that, and push back against this insufferable media-generated narrative of the DOJ being an independent fourth branch of government.

    some responses

    ..
    ...
    Trump's stance:
    Asked by reporters at the White House this morning if the memo made him more likely to fire Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein or if he still had confidence in Rosenstein, President Trump responded: You figure that one out.

    updating compilation of reactions:

    The FBI Agents Association:
    "FBI Special Agents have not, and will not, allow partisan politics to distract us from our solemn commitment to our mission."

    Rep. Devin Nunes:
    "The Committee has discovered serious violations of the public trust, and the American people have a right to know when officials in crucial institutions are abusing their authority for political purposes."

    Carter Page:
    "The brave and assiduous oversight by Congressional leaders in discovering this unprecedented abuse of process represents a giant, historic leap in the repair of America's democracy."

    Sen. John McCain:
    "The latest attacks on the FBI and Department of Justice serve no American interests —*no party's, no president's, only Putin's...If we continue to undermine our own rule of law, we are doing Putin's job for him."

    Prime question that must now be answered:

    After the election, Sessions recused himself, yet Rosenstein had no problem continuing to be involved. Rosenstein had more reason to be recused than Sessions.

    No FISA Warrant without dossier. Which means no Russia collusion story without the dossier. It also means no Mueller special counsel without the dossier which was paid for by the DNC/Hillary Clinton Foundation. So Mueller should go away now and quit wasting the taxpayers dollars.

    The bottom line is Trump was right when he said he was spied on, and the Democrats and MSM made him looked like a Kook.

    Attention, Attention, AmeriKunt People!

    What did we tell you would happen, over 15 years ago now, when this massive new increase in state surveillance power was born??!!

    We TOLD you that the surveillance state would turn inward, would create political prisoners, would shred privacy, liberty and the bill of rights and would be used to undermine and corrupt and sway the political process!!!

    But you numbfucks didn't want to listen, did you?

    And you probably won't listen now either.

    Didn't want to put a stop to it when you could.

    And now it's too late.

    $#@! you, enjoy your new East Germany, assenholes.

    You can thank Nunes for waiting until after the recent vote on FISA power to release this memo. But of course that's just a small tweak to this surveillance monstrosity.

    Maybe there is something in their contract about being fired? I would not be surprised if some "compassionate" person put something there.

    Time for an immediate release of all investigations regarding every politician past and present so we can see if any of them are in collusion because of cover-up of illegal activities by the deep state.

    Yeah, like THAT is gonna happen.

    Among the memo’s findings are:

    The anti-Trump dossier funded by the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee formed an “essential” part of the initial and all three renewal surveillance applications against Trump campaign adviser Carter Page;

    The political origins of the dossier were “known to senior DOJ and FBI officials,” but those origins were not included in applications to obtain the warrant;

    Also used to justify the surveillance warrants against Page was a news story supposedly corroborating the dossier, that was pushed by the dossier author Christopher Steele himself — yet the FISA application incorrectly says Steele did not provide the information in the article;

    Perkins Coie — the law firm for the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee hosted a meeting with Steele, Fusion GPS and media (this revelation makes it harder for the Clinton campaign and the DNC to deny they knew about the dossier, though Clinton and other top DNC officials at that time have denied knowing about it);

    Steele was “suspended and then terminated” as an FBI source, after the FBI learned that he made an authorized disclosure of his relationship with the FBI to liberal media magazine Mother Jones, and he lied to the FBI about his previous media contacts with Yahoo! and other outlets;

    Steele — although portrayed as a “boy scout” by Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson — had personal bias against candidate Donald Trump, telling senior Justice Department official Bruce Ohr that he was “desperate that Donald Trump not get elected and was passionate about him not being president”;

    Ohr’s wife Nellie Ohr assisted with the dossier, but the FBI or the DOJ did not disclose this connection in the application for the FISA warrant, even though Bruce Ohr worked “closely” with Deputy Attorney Generals Sally Yates and then Rod Rosenstein;

    At the time that the FBI used the dossier to obtain the spy warrant on Page in October 2016, head of the FBI’s counterintelligence division Bill Priestap had assessed that the corroboration of the dossier was still in its “infancy,” and after Steele was terminated as a source, an FBI unit assessed his reporting as only “minimally corroborated”;

    FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe acknowledged to the House Intelligence Committee in December 2017 that no warrant would have been sought without the dossier;

    The FISA warrant also mentioned information related to another Trump campaign adviser, George Papadopoulos, even though there was no evidence of cooperation or conspiracy between Page and Papadopoulos;

    The memo does not state what the information about Papadopoulos was, but said that information was the trigger to the FBI’s counterintelligence investigation on Russian meddling and collusion in late July 2016 (he had told an Australian diplomat at a London bar that a Maltese professor connected to Russia had told him he had dirt on Clinton in the form of emails);

    Peter Strzok, the No. 2 at the FBI’s counterintelligence division opened the bureau’s investigation on Russian meddling and collusion (text messages between him and fellow FBI official and lover Lisa Page show that he held an anti-Trump bias).

    If memo assertions are confirmed as factual by respected public bodies, the basis for whole Russiagate fishing expedition will be undermined and it will be big political win for Trump/Javanka wing of GOP.
    In that case, Flynn should be brought back to his White House job and all other changes should be reversed/all fish caught in this expedition should be released?


    Quote:
    Looks like memogate is really cathing on. If this exposed corruption of widely respected agencies, risk is that it could undermine public trust in very agencies and national heroes who are trusted with protecting nation and investigating tragedies like 9/11 that led to massive Iraq war.

    But if this is confirmed, it will be huge and good news for Trump-Kushner team and could stop the ongoing Russiagate fishing expedtion that has lately become Flynn-Israel gate and alleged Trump SIL Jared Kushner money laundering gate following Steve Bannon "memos" published in the very controversial book Fire and Fury that caught attention of Mueller.
