About That WSJ Report of the Durham Probe Investigating FBI Tipsters

About That WSJ Report of the Durham Probe Investigating FBI Tipsters

People keep sending me emails about a Wall St Journal article [SEE HERE] highlighting John Durham and a grand jury receiving evidence.  According to the article: “Special Counsel John Durham, appointed during the Trump administration to examine the origins of the FBI’s 2016 Russia probe, is presenting evidence to a grand jury and preparing a lengthy report expected to be completed in the coming months, according to people familiar with the matter.”

The article goes on to say Durham is looking into whether any informant or tipster to the FBI intentionally gave false information, ergo they have committed a crime:

“Mr. Durham has been examining potential criminal charges against several lower-level Federal Bureau of Investigation employees, and people who aren’t in government, according to people familiar with the matter.” (link)

…”Prosecutors working for Mr. Durham have focused on people outside the FBI who provided information that helped fuel the 2016 investigation, the people familiar with the matter said.”

It gets a little frustrating reading these articles, yes I said plural – because the New York Times ran an almost identical article in April {See Here} –  because NOTHING is going to come of Durham except for the possibility of another obtuse report that will look almost identical to the report issued by DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz.

How can we be so certain?… Because of Robert Mueller, that’s why.

If John Durham was to outline evidence of any FBI and DOJ corruption and/or wrongdoing in his review of the Spygate or “Crossfire Hurricane” investigation, the transparently obvious questions would be: (1) why didn’t Robert Mueller see it?… and (2) why would Mueller be investigating something that he knew stemmed from a false point of origin?

See the problem?

As soon as John Durham found out that Robert Mueller and team were dirty; and as soon as John Durham found direct evidence that DOJ and FBI officials were coordinating with dirty politicians in the Senate Intelligence Committee (both parties); and as soon as he found out that all of them -in both branches of government- were working together to frame a false narrative (based on nothing) just to target and eliminate Donald Trump; he would know he needed an exit.

Special Counsel John Durham cannot prosecute anyone for anything the Robert Mueller team should have known; and the Robert Mueller team should have known everything… because Mueller and team used ten times as many DOJ and FBI assets and resources as Durham; used all of the originating evidence that Durham is now re-reviewing; looked at the exact same set of facts and witnesses now under review by Durham; and spent two years doing it.

Anything of substance that Durham would prove now, only highlights the corrupt intent of Robert Mueller (and team).

See the problem?

That’s why nothing will ever come of it.

A report that says “mistakes were made”, “should have known”, “accepted mistakenly”, “didn’t follow standards”, etc etc etc…  is the only possible outcome from John Durham.  It might paint a slightly more ugly picture than Horowitz did, but in the end the result is the same.

Chaff and Countermeasures.  Nothing more.

John Solomon might write an article or expose’ of outrage.  Sara Carter might wax philosophically with an outraged ‘oh, and one more thing‘ Sean Hannity.  Catherine Herridge may point out five years worth of granular details from her experience with the former DOJ and FBI officials.  Dan Bongino might spit into the microphone; and Lindsey Graham might promise a hearing with John Durham as a witness…. and the day after tomorrow is Monday.


Wow, It was McSwain – President Trump Releases US Attorney Letter Notifying Him of Bill Barr Efforts to Block Investigation of Election Fraud

Yesterday we were uncertain if it was US Attorney William M McSwain who notified President Trump of Bill Barr’s corruption and blocking of election investigations. {Go Deep}  Today President Trump released the letter confirming it was McSwain.  [pdf HERE]

In previous comments attributed to AG Bill Barr,  he claimed to have seen no evidence of election fraud.  The Atlantic Article cites Bill Barr stating to an AP journalist December 1st 2020: ” To date, we have not seen fraud on a scale that could have effected a different outcome in the election,” and then the article covers the fallout with the White House from that AP interview.

There’s a big difference between not seeing election fraud and purposefully blocking a United States Attorney from investigating allegations of fraud with a motive not to see it.  This is blood-boiling:

President Trump Spokesperson Liz Harrington Responds to Bill Barr Recent Statements

In this OAN interview [Rumble Link Here] Natalie Harp outlines the duplicitous history of Bill Barr’s former statements relating to voter fraud and mail-in ballot fraud.  After laying out the background of Barr’s statements as Attorney General, President Trump’s spokesperson Liz Harrington responds directly to the current position of Barr.


An Open Letter to Governor Ron DeSantis, The December 1st Collusion Between AG Bill Barr and the AP Provides a Stark Warning

Governor Ron DeSantis, the information highlighted in the example below is provided as affirmation to what you likely already know; however, I provide the enhanced granular background to contemplate as you look toward the horizon.  This information is provided publicly because there is a purposeful reason to continue pulling back the curtain for a larger electoral awakening.

As a former congressman you know the duplicity of the bureaucratic federal system that you left behind.  The traditional framework of three co-equal branches of government has been usurped by a larger and deeper network now represented by terminology describing the intelligence community.  The example below highlights just one way the system is self-protecting.

On October 19, 2020, former U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr appointed John Durham as special prosecutor under authorities provided by under DOJ regulations [28 cfr 600].  However, AG Bill Barr did not tell the public at the time of the appointment.  Within the original appointment AG Barr notes the reason for doing this quietly [Page 2, Paragraph (e)]:

Pursuant to 28 C.F.R. § 600.9(b), I have determined that the notification requirement … should be tolled until at least after the November 3, 2020 election because legitimate and investigative privacy concerns warrant confidentiality.

In essence, AG Bill Barr stated he did not want to impact the 2020 presidential election with a notification to congress or the public of this appointment.  While the justification for this approach is clearly within the unspoken rules of the DOJ not wanting to give the impression of interference in political elections, we must also accept these unspoken DOJ rules only flow in one direction – when Democrat party politicians need to be protected.

However, beyond the justification for not informing the public that U.S. Attorney John Durham was now empowered with special prosecutor authorities before the 2020 presidential election, there are much bigger issues that surface; and this must be accepted and discussed in its purposeful totality.

♦ Notification of the special proseuctor appointment did not surface until December 1, 2020, when AP journalist Michael Balsamo first wrote about it (SEE HERE).  Based on a recent widely-viewed article published in the Atlantic, we now know Balsamo was summoned by AG Barr to Main Justice for an informal lunch were several issues were discussed: “Barr’s betrayal came on December 1, over lunch in the attorney general’s private dining room with Michael Balsamo, a Justice Department beat reporter at the Associated Press.” (link)

The most recent headlines surround AG Bill Barr telling Mr. Balsamo: “To date, we have not seen fraud on a scale that could have effected a different outcome in the election,”  thus the current narrative du jour.  However, in hindsight we can now enhance the background of that Dec. 1st meeting between AG Bill Barr and AP journalist Michael Balsamo to include the attorney general informing the AP about the appointment of John Durham as a special prosecutor.   Balsamo wrote about the Durham appointment on that exact date, December 1, 2020.

The reason for drawing your attention to the timeline is to emphasize the nature of how the DOJ, in this example AG Bill Barr, coordinates with specific intent to make certain information public at certain times, while holding back information that may be adverse to DOJ interests which are often political.

Additionally, and very importantly, do not let it go without emphasis how a special prosecutor appointment would NEVER remain secret, without leaks, from personnel within the larger DOJ institution who are in close and frequent contact with their allies in the media.

Given the scope of known leaks from the DOJ is it almost certain the New York Times, Washington Post and Politico knew of the October 19th appointment, but did not report on it because the background material was adverse to their collective interests.

Now, please allow me to highlight the obvious and more alarming political motive; this is where a larger understanding of duplicity becomes even more important.

♦ We find out on December 1st (after the election) that AG Bill Barr previously appointed John Durham as a special counsel to investigate criminal matters on October 19, 2020.  AG Bill Barr notified the Associated Press (Michael Balsamo) and the Senate Judiciary Committee on the *exact same day.  The sequence is: Barr tells the media, then Barr tells congress:

*It is critical to understand how the DOJ system operates at a political level -when they have a very specific political intent- while noting the dates of activity and the dates of notification of that activity; two very different dynamics.

Given the background of information on how Bill Barr operated as a U.S. Attorney General, we can now see the specific intent for the AG to appoint Durham on that specific date, in that specific way.

(1) The shift in the investigative definition/authority now locked down President Trump from demanding the pre-election release of any information that might touch upon the Durham special counsel purview.  Any request by President Trump would now be met with the familiar shield of an “ongoing investigation“.  You will note this was one of the primary purposes of the Rod Rosenstein appointed Robert Mueller special counsel, and this shield was deployed against the office of the President numerous times when the president requested information be made public.   The administrative state is self-protecting.

(2) Notice the date of the appointment, October 19, 2020.  This date blocked the President from demanding public release and simultaneously fell just 93 days before the Biden inauguration of Jan 20, 2021.  This provided Joe Biden one week to use the 100 day back-look nullification of executive branch action.  In essence, Biden could have easily ended the Durham probe if he wanted.  Strategic timing.

(3) Additionally, notice how AG Bill Barr provided another exit if needed. Under DOJ regulations [28 cfr 600]  a special counsel must come from “outside government“; John Durham was not outside government and did not resign his position prior to the appointment.  Bill Barr gave the appearance of a special counsel appointment while knowing the legal validity of could easily collapse upon challenge (if the Biden administration choose):

§ 600.3 Qualifications of the Special Counsel.

“(a) An individual named as Special Counsel shall be a lawyer with a reputation for integrity and impartial decisionmaking, and with appropriate experience to ensure both that the investigation will be conducted ably, expeditiously and thoroughly, and that investigative and prosecutorial decisions will be supported by an informed understanding of the criminal law and Department of Justice policies. The Special Counsel shall be selected from outside the United States Government. Special Counsels shall agree that their responsibilities as Special Counsel shall take first precedence in their professional lives, and that it may be necessary to devote their full time to the investigation, depending on its complexity and the stage of the investigation.” (link)

Obviously Bill Barr is a smart man. He would know the regulations he cites would require the special counsel to come from “outside the U.S. government,” thus such a simple flaw cannot be looked upon as anything except purposeful.

(4) If the 2020 election outcome did not remove President Trump, notice the special counsel appointment would have continued to hamstring him and keep the administrative state protected from sunlight.  Yet, another insurance policy put into place amid a variety of DOJ and FBI insurance policies deployed.

Everything within the Durham appointment as special counsel, the timing, the justification for secrecy, the manner & method, and later the way it was revealed through AP journalist Michael Balsamo points to a coordinated strategy.   Note the “kick the can” aspect to the strategy began well before the 2020 election.

Returning to the original -albeit hidden at the time- date of the appointment… October 19, 2020, someone around President Trump was informed about the shift in the Durham probe to a special counsel; and someone justified to the president why that special counsel would remain hidden.  Perhaps Bill Barr himself, but I doubt it.  It is more likely a ‘high level’ DOJ official put the spin on the appointment to someone like Mark Meadows or the White House counsel.

How do we know that President Trump was informed, manipulated and conned?

Listen to this very specific speech segment he gave on October 19, 2020, from Prescott Arizona:

[embedded content]


Can you see the structure of the set-up in hindsight?

President Trump was lied to about the motives and intents of Bill Barr and what he was doing with the appointment of John Durham as a special prosecutor.

It is very likely President Trump was frustrated by the DOJ information that was given to him directly or indirectly.  However, likely despite his own gut instincts, the president granted the benefit of doubt to Bill Barr on that October date.

It would be entirely understandable for President Trump to be exceptionally angry in 2021 about how Machiavellian and manipulative the apparatus of the justice department, the FBI and the aggregate intelligence apparatus are.

Is it any surprise why President Trump keeps asking “Where’s Durham?“…. while We The People simultaneously accept Durham was meant as nothing more than a duplicitous ploy to quell outrage while advancing a coordinated background effort on behalf of DC interests.

However, I provide this cited reminder to the larger public, and specifically to Florida Governor Ron DeSantis as a warning for how entrenched and controlling those systems of government have become.  The people in/around the executive office will even work against the White House if that’s what it takes to retain the system.

There are no allies in DC who are not directly connected to the preservation of a corrupt federal government.  The concept of three branches of government has collapsed and there are no checks on the authorities of the larger intelligence apparatus.  Any action from any non-corrupt entity that walks into the DC system must engage that system with foresight and specific knowledge that every single entity, process and institution encountered will seek their removal at all costs.

President Trump Releases a Statement About Bill Barr, The Deep State Attorney General Who Conned The White House

After being duped, played and ultimately conned, by the duplicitous and Machiavellian deep state apparatchik known as former AG Bill Barr {Go Deep Here} it is no surprise to CTH why President Trump would be a level of angry that’s almost unfathomable.

Every word within this statement by President Trump is justified and warranted.

PRESIDENT TRUMP:  “RINO former Attorney General Bill Barr failed to investigate election fraud, and really let down the American people. Even the scam that took place in Georgia of ballot stuffing on camera, he couldn’t see what was wrong with it.

Just like he failed to understand the Horowitz report and let everyone down with respect to getting a timely investigation (where’s Durham?) on all of the corruption of the Obama-Biden Administration.

It’s people in authority like Bill Barr that allow the crazed Radical Left to succeed. He and other RINOs in the Republican Party are being used in order to try to convince people that the election was legitimate when so many incredible facts have now come out to show conclusively that it wasn’t.

He came in with a semi-bang and went out with a whimper. Earlier in his term Bill Barr went ballistic on CNN with Wolf Blitzer warning Democrats were changing election rules to flood the system with mail-in ballots that “as a matter of logic” are “very open to fraud.”

They are, and Bill Barr did nothing about it.

If there was no fraud, why are Arizona, Georgia, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and other States spending so much time and effort on exposing the fraud? We already know that:

•101,789 “obsolete” voters on the rolls in Georgia, including 18,486 dead people
•Ballot batches off by up to 17.5 percent in Maricopa County, Arizona
•“Massive” chain of custody problems with drop boxes in Georgia, missing hundreds of thousands of records for months after the election
•Thousands of ballots “wheeled in through the back door” in Fulton County days after the election
•“Double feeding” ballots in Fulton County, Georgia
•Nearly 200,000 illegal “indefinitely confined” votes in Wisconsin that violated Voter ID law
•“Cash for votes” scheme in Nevada
•Illegal alien votes
•Election law changes were not authorized by the State Legislatures, which is mandated by the U.S. Constitution

And much more!

If he felt this way, why did Barr say he was “greatly honored” and “proud to have played a role in the many successes and unprecedented achievements you have delivered for the American people” in the final letter he wrote to me? He said, “Few could have weathered these attacks, much less forge ahead with a positive program for the country.”

Now it was revealed that Barr was being pushed to tell lies about the election by Mitch McConnell, another beauty, who was worried about damaging the Republicans chances in the Georgia runoff.

What really damaged the Senate Republicans was allowing their races to be rigged and stolen, and worse, the American people to no longer believe their vote matters because spineless RINOs like Bill Barr and Mitch McConnell did nothing.

Bill Barr was a disappointment in every sense of the word. Besides which, Barr, who was Attorney General (lawyer) shouldn’t be speaking about the President. Instead of doing his job, he did the opposite and told people within the Justice Department not to investigate the election.

Just like he did with the Mueller report and the cover-up of Crooked Hillary and RUSSIA RUSSIA RUSSIA, they don’t want to investigate the real facts.

Bill Barr’s weakness helped facilitate the cover-up of the Crime of the Century, the Rigged 2020 Presidential Election!”

~ President Donald J Trump


Predictably Bondo Barr Covers The Rot

There has been a lot of discussion today about an Atlantic article [SEE HERE] containing an outline of former AG Bill Barr’s discussion with reporters and the White House in the aftermath of the 2020 election.  In essence the nub of the article is Bill Barr stating to a journalist December 1st: ” To date, we have not seen fraud on a scale that could have effected a different outcome in the election,” and then the article covers the fallout with the White House from that AP interview.

AG Barr called Michael Balsamo to his office in Main Justice to make the statement over lunch:

ATLANTIC – […] Balsamo’s story appeared on the AP newswire shortly after lunch ended: “Disputing Donald Trump’s persistent baseless claims, Attorney General William Barr declared Tuesday the U.S. Justice Department had uncovered no evidence of widespread voter fraud that could change the outcome of the 2020 election.”

The story blew a hole in the president’s claims. Nobody seriously questioned Barr’s conservative credentials or whether he had been among Trump’s most loyal cabinet secretaries. His conclusion sent a definitive message that the effort to overturn the election was without merit. (read more)

That last paragraph perfectly encapsulates the entire purpose for AG Bill Barr to be in place since February of 2019.  To present the image of a loyal cabinet secretary so that no-one could/would question his conservative credentials.   That purpose was exactly what CTH presented upon the nomination and confirmation of Bill Barr.  His job was to be the bondo that covered the rot in DC and gave the illusion of a healthy functioning justice department.  We called it “Bondo Barr“.

There is a specific irony of Bill Barr using Wayne County, Michigan, as “no evidence” of ballot fraud while simultaneously admitting no other area other than Wayne county has voting precincts that do not count ballots.  Only in Wayne county do the 662 precincts deliver ballots to a central counting facility.  The Wayne County process itself is designed specifically to make ballot fraud easier….  The former AG says move along, move along, nothing to see here… “that’s what they do.”

The timing of this article release to coincide with the DOJ challenging election reforms in Georgia, combined with the Arizona audit finishing up their initial hand recount and verification of ballots, does not seem coincidental.

As most CTH readers are aware the legislative, executive and judicial narrative engineers work in coordination with their media conscripts and at the behest of the intelligence apparatus.  In the private sector the BlackRock and Vanguard multinationals, and the CoC Wall Street, money builds the bridge to deliver the finished outcome.

Under this process the U.S. government is functioning exactly as it was designed when it was “fundamentally transformed”; the corrupt outcomes are a feature, not a flaw.

SEE also: AG Barr Blocked Declassification

Rather than use this article to once again draw attention to the corrupt intents and purposes of Bill Barr as the professional bondo applier, it is worth taking a pause to think carefully about another angle.   Think about all those voices, specifically pundits in media, who stood up to say Bill Barr is a man of integrity and will be the person to get to the bottom of the ‘spygate‘ corruption issues.   Remind yourself of exactly who those voices were…. Then recognize the intent of that drumbeat.

That list would include: Trey Gowdy, Mitch McConnell, Lindsey Graham, Jonah Goldberg, Kevin McCarthy, Marco Rubio, Sean Hannity, Sara Carter, John Solomon, Mark Levin, Laura Ingraham, Johnathan Turley, Joe diGenova and Victoria Toensing etc. etc.

Days after his confirmation in 2019 CTH noted something was sketchy about Bill Barr because of a very simple and common sense issue – everyone in/around DC knew Robert Mueller was in place to cover-up the corrupt DOJ and FBI activity and keep attacking the office of President Trump.  Not a single person in DC did not know this intention of the special counsel.  They never talked about it publicly, but every person in every office and every agency in DC knew Mueller’s purpose.

In the first few weeks after his confirmation AG Bill Barr spent an extreme amount of time praising Robert Mueller for his work as special counsel and vouching for his integrity.  That continued praise for Mueller and Barr also heaping effusive praise on FBI Director Chris Wray, was when CTH accepted the brutally obvious, Bill Barr’s job was to apply Bondo to cover the rot.

“Every day we spend outraged about what the DOJ and FBI did in 2016 and 2017, is one less day that AG Bill Barr is not being held accountable for all of this current DOJ and FBI corruption that stares him in the face when he brushes his teeth each morning.” ~ CTH, 2019

Barr played that outrage distraction game perfectly…


New York Times Reports Andrew Weissmann and Robert Mueller Sought, Then Hid, Special Counsel Surveillance of Trump White House Attorney Don McGhan

My headline is what happened, the New York Times headline is massive spin: “Apple Is Said to Have Turned Over Data on Trump’s White House Counsel in 2018”.

Notice what the New York Times is doing here.  Everything about their article is written to hide, obfuscate and ignore the reality of what their article actually is revealing. Look closely:

tactics by the Trump Justice Department“?  This is far beyond spin, it is an intentional effort at cognitive dissonance.  Perhaps this article is written now because the Durham investigation is going to reveal how Mueller and Weissmann conducted investigative surveillance over the Trump White House…  Likely, but rather than supposition let’s just go to the reality of the details.

The headline positions Apple as the center, but the real nub of the revelation is that Weissmann and Mueller used the Special Counsel and FBI to conduct surveillance on the White House legal counsel, and his family, while President Donald Trump was in office.   Think about that for a moment.  Think about it carefully.

Imagine if Donald Trump allies in the DOJ and FBI were conducting surveillance on Joe Biden’s White House legal counsel?  The media would go absolutely bonkers… rightfully so; yet, that is exactly what happened when Trump was in office.  The intelligence apparatus was weaponized to conduct political surveillance of President Trump, through the White House legal counsel, while he was in office.

THIS IS A MASSIVE issue.  Yet the media are downplaying what took place because, well, the stunning abuse of DOJ power is in alignment with their political objectives.

From the article (emphasis mine):

WASHINGTON — Apple told Donald F. McGahn II, the White House counsel to former President Donald J. Trump, last month that the Justice Department had subpoenaed information about an account that belonged to him in February 2018, and that the government barred the company from telling him at the time, according to two people briefed on the matter.

Mr. McGahn’s wife received a similar notice from Apple, said one of the people, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss a sensitive matter.

It is not clear what F.B.I. agents were scrutinizing, nor whether Mr. McGahn was their specific focus. In investigations, agents sometimes compile a large list of phone numbers and email addresses that were in contact with a subject, and seek to identify all those people by using subpoenas to communications companies for any account information like names, computer addresses and credit card numbers associated with them.

Still, the disclosure that agents secretly collected data of a sitting White House counsel is striking as it comes amid a political backlash to revelations about Trump-era seizures of data of reporters and Democrats in Congress for leak investigations. The president’s top lawyer is also a chief point of contact between the White House and the Justice Department.

Notice what the NYT is doing here?  They are attempting to blame Trump for a subpoena against his own White House counsel.  Crazy level of spin to cloud the real story of what was going on.

Apple told Mr. McGahn that it complied with the subpoena in a timely fashion but declined to tell him what it provided the government, according to a person briefed on the matter. Under Justice Department policy, gag orders for subpoenas may be renewed for up to a year at a time, suggesting that prosecutors went to court several times to prevent Apple from notifying the McGahns earlier.

[…]  Apple told the McGahns that it received the subpoena on Feb. 23, 2018, according to a person briefed on the matter. The other person familiar with the matter said the subpoena had been issued by a grand jury in the Eastern District of Virginia.

It is not clear why prosecutors obtained the subpoena. But several notable events were occurring around that time. (read more)

February 2018 was at the time when the Weissmann/Mueller special counsel was at it’s apex.  In early February the corrupt special counsel found out about the FBI leak investigation into the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (SSCI) that surrounded James Wolfe and Senator Mark Warner.

The leak investigation was run out of the Washington Field Office by Brian Dugan. The special counsel was unaware until the case against Wolfe was complete.

What the special counsel was doing in February 2018 was: (1) covering the tracks of the Obama-era political surveillance; (2) trying to retain their own investigative credibility by hiding prior abuses by the DOJ and FBI during that surveillance; (3) continue surveillance of the Trump administration under the auspices of a “Trump-Russia Collusion/Conspiracy” investigation; and (3) build a fraudulent obstruction case against President Trump in order to remove him from office.

As Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein noted in his April 2020 testimony to congress, Rosenstein was facilitating all the requests made by the special counsel.  Rosenstein did not question any of the expanded scope requests from Weissmann/Mueller, and Rosenstein did not deny an requests for investigative tools or techniques that required his signature.  In short, Rosenstein gave the special counsel every authority they requested without any pushback.  When Rosenstein was questioned about this he said he didn’t feel it was appropriate to challenge the special counsel as it could be perceived as him interfering with their “investigative techniques” and “authorities.”

So what this New York Times article is really highlighting is how the Weissmann/Mueller special counsel went after the personal records of White House Attorney Don McGhan and his family.  DOJ Attorney Andrew Weissmann was digging for information that could be used against the Trump White House.  THAT is where the subpoenas came from.

It is possible the New York Times is trying to get out in front of the issue with this article.  Keep in mind the primary PR firm of the FBI is the New York Times.  When the FBI needs cover, they shape their side of events to the New York Times via “people familiar with the matter” etc.

Perhaps Durham is close to reporting on the motives and operations of the Special Counsel, who knows?  But there’s a reason why the New York Times is trying to cloud the background of what this surveillance of the Trump White House counsel is all about.


Buried Lead – Washington Post Outlines AG Barr As Key Figure Who Blocked Declassification of Spygate Documents

The Washington Post has a lengthy hit-piece against Kash Patel where they infer unsourced claims the DOJ is investigating the former Nunes aide and Trump administration official for releasing classified information.

Keep in mind that President Trump granted full declassification authority to AG Bill Barr on May 23, 2019.   I would draw your attention to these two paragraphs buried deep in the reporting (emphasis mine):

(WaPo) […] The battle against the deep state continued, meanwhile. Patel kept pushing, along with DNI Ratcliffe, for declassification of memos challenging the origins of the Russia investigation. Nakasone [NSA Director] strongly dissented, and Esper [Sec of Defense] backed him up in an October letter to Ratcliffe “urging that the information not be released due to the harm it would do to national security, including specific harm to the military,” a senior defense official said. Haspel [CIA Director], too, strongly opposed release of the information. Their argument for protecting sensitive information was finally supported by Attorney General William P. Barr, and Trump backed away, a source close to the events said.

“I think there were people within the IC [Intelligence Community], at the heads of certain intelligence agencies, who did not want their tradecraft called out, even though it was during a former administration, because it doesn’t look good on the agency itself,” Patel said in the RealClearInvestigations interview. (read more)

It is tradition the NSA and CIA run to the Washington Post when they need a media PR firm to push their position. So this article makes sense considering the NSA and CIA both had something to hide within the criminal activity behind Spygate. [Maybe the timing has to do with recent information about the Durham probe.]

Regardless of what has initiated the need for the intelligence apparatus to turn attention toward Kash Patel I think we all understand exactly what is described inside the paragraphs; the stuff the IC couldn’t deal with…. the institutional damage they feared….. and ultimately the reason Bondo Barr went along with their need to keep it all hidden.

The NSA database was illegally being exploited by FBI “contractors” (likely Crowdstrike), and political opposition against Trump was being extracted and shared with the ideologically aligned Clinton group.   After NSA Director Admiral Mike Rogers shut down their access, the FBI opened Crossfire Hurricane to overcome the legal hurdle, and surveillance operations began again.

What the intelligence community fears is the American public knowing there is a a process of using bulk metadata gathering of electronic communication for operations against politicians, political interest groups, and any entity deemed adverse to the interests of the leftist administration.

Such an admission would lead to an unrecoverable collapse in institutional integrity.  That is why the entire IC apparatus aligned against the declassification.

Robert Mueller had two goals as special counsel.  Goal #1 was to continue the fraudulent DOJ/FBI “Stop Trump” operation initiated by James Comey, Andrew McCabe and their crew technically named Crossfire Hurricane.  Goal #2 was to bury the illegal action; to create the cover-up needed for everything that took place in the “Stop Trump” operation.

It is the second goal that most people never reconciled; however, it is also that second goal that’s the most important.  Everyone in DC knew Mueller’s objective.  Every person in every branch of government and every federal agency knew Mueller’s real purpose.

When you accept what Mueller’s objective was, I mean really accept it, then and only then can you move to the second part of that awakening.  Everyone else knew exactly what that purpose was, including AG Bill Barr and OIG Michael Horowitz. They all knew.

Everything was essentially a process of systemic contingencies; ‘if this, then that’.  If this happens then we react with that.  If this is likely to come out, then we proactively respond with this – that allows control. That is the nature of a cover-up operation.

From that baseline it becomes an exercise in intellectual honesty to see the bigger picture.

The entire system was united against the ‘outsider’ that Trump represented.  Every action taken by Rosenstein, Barr, Wray, Bowditch, Boente, Horowitz and the special counsel team itself was done purposefully, because they knew the Mueller/Weissmann objective was to cover-up all of the unlawful schemes previously used against Trump.

Generally people accept that Mueller Inc was in place to target Trump.  However, the lesser admitted reality is that Mueller was in place to cover for the branches, agencies and institutions that were part of the originating targeting.

All leaks to the media, by any entity – including the special counsel, were purposeful with this goal in mind.  All information released was done purposefully with this goal in mind.  All action taken by those in support of the Mueller unit were taken with full knowledge of what that second goal and intent was.

No-one was ever unaware of the purpose of Robert Mueller.

Everyone knew.

That list of everyone includes: Bill Barr, Rod Rosenstein, James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Lindsey Graham, Ron Johnson, Chuck Grassley, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, Susan Rice, Sally Yates, Loretta Lynch, Mitch McConnell, every member of the Senate intel committee; every member of the House intel committee… and yes, including John Durham and every member of every DOJ office everywhere.

The legislative branch knew. The judicial branch knew.  The executive branch knew. The FISA court knew… All of the insiders knew the Mueller probe was one big vacuum to suck up all of the evidence that would have exposed a corrupt system to We The People.

They did all of this because the scale of the originating scandal was so severe it would be almost impossible for our nation to cope with the consequences.  That fearful knowledge is also what’s behind the reality we are currently seeing with thousands of National Guard troops guarding Washington DC…. just in case.  Another systemic contingency.

On TV some voices railed against goal #1, the investigation itself; however, no-one every publicly talked about goal #2, the cover-up.  Yet they all knew it.

Bill Barr knew the cover-up operation when he repeatedly praised Robert Mueller.  So too did Lindsey Graham and all of the other voices in/around the DC system.

This is why all of those characters acted with disregard for any information that surfaced. They were all participants; and they knew the system would protect itself from sunlight.

Once you begin to accept this uncomfortable truth, then you start to realize just how far some voices went to keep the pantomime going.  Everything was orchestrated to keep everyone focused on the “injustice” within the details.

Think about the last four years, systemic contingencies everywhere. No-one ever publicly talked about what Mueller was really in charge of doing in the goal of protecting the institutions and systems within them.  The people inside that system all knew that Mueller was their protector.  Mueller was protecting very corrupt people.

Everything now visible, the blatant disregard and the ‘in-your-face’ approach with the JoeBama administration, is downstream from that origination point.  That’s why they all walk around as if they do not care…. because they have nothing to worry about.

Start from the position that everyone knew the purpose and intents of Robert Mueller, including people very close to President Trump, and then you start to realize just how brutally corrupt this DC system is.   President Trump was satiated by people who knew Robert Mueller was protecting all of those who tried, and failed, to keep him out of office and then hamstring him once he entered the system.

Everyone knew.

No one did not know.
