Ed Henry: Intelligence Sources Say John Brennan Deliberately Hid Evidence That Putin Favored Hillary, In Order to Make His Coup Frame-Job Stick
GRENELL RELEASES LIST OF UNMASKERS
BIDEN UNMASKED

Update! I've got a little list, they'd none of them be miss'd...

Click on the third image.

And... JOEY FINGERS!

Grenell isn't fucking around here.

Explanation of "Unmasking:"

296 unmasking defined: when FISA is being used to surveil Foreign Contacts, such as the Russian Ambassador, US Law is that any Americans on that call must have their names "masked" from the record, because of Constitutional provisions like the 4th amendment and the like. (You can't run secret investigation on American citizens without Probably Cause, dontcha know, or so the story goes)

SO if there is some special reason this person should be identified, this name can be "Unmasked", but the official who asks for that must record his name and the date he asked for this to be done, since it is supposed to be quite unusal and rare. These records show that the Obama administration was grossly abusing this power and using it to surveil hundreds of people, presumably all of their political opponents.

This is political corruption of the highest level, it truly is 100 times worse than any crime committed during Watergate.

Unmasking someone without a valid intelligence or law enforcement reason -- something on the level of probable cause -- constitutes a deprivation of someone's rights and may be charged as a federal criminal offense.

...

Video of Tucker Carlson and Ed Henry below-- a video which actually starts with a summary of the "unmasking" scandal, and what it means. Note that it could be a criminal offense to "unmask" an American citizen without good legal cause.

So two officials say that Brennan had evidence that Putin favored Hillary Clinton, but deliberately hid that information to make his frame-up stick.

I would guess that those two officials are also informing Fred Fleitz -- who reported that Brennan suppressed evidence that Putin favored Hillary back on April 22.

A former national security official for the Trump White House said Wednesday that former CIA Director John Brennan deliberately suppressed intelligence evidence that showed Russian President Vladimir Putin would benefit if "the more predictable and malleable" Hillary Clinton was elected president in 2016.

From Fleitz's op-ed at Fox News:

More gravely, they said that CIA Director Brennan suppressed facts or analysis that showed why it was not in Russia's interests to support Trump and why Putin stood to benefit from Hillary Clinton's election. They also told me that Brennan suppressed that intelligence over the objections of CIA analysts.


Note that the Deep State Dick-Sucker and insider-trader Richard Burr couldn't help but praise the fine work of John Brennan:

The Senate Intelligence Committee, led by North Carolina Republican Richard Burr, praised the Obama era intel officials for applying "strong tradecraft" in the assessment.

That God we have these good Establishment Republicans acting as handmaidens for the Democrat Party. What would we do without them and the stench of their corruption and cowardice.

It is being further reported that Ric Grennel, acting head of the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI), might declassify the "suppressed evidence" of Putin's interest in a "RESET" with Hillary Clinton.

President Trump's spy chief is reportedly declassifying information that shows CIA Director John Brennan "suppressed" intelligence on Russia wanting Hillary Clinton to win the 2016 election.

Fox News chief White House correspondent Ed Henry said Tuesday evening that "it could get sticky" for Brennan, who served as CIA director under President Barack Obama, due to his role in developing the 2017 intelligence community assessment on Russian election interference that determined with "moderate" to "high" confidence that Russian President Vladimir Putin and the Kremlin sought to boost Trump's 2016 election chances.

"There's other intel that may have been more serious suggesting that Russia wanted Hillary Clinton to win, rather than balancing that out in the assessment they put out there in that assessment, and set the narrative that Russia wanted Trump to win," Henry reported on Tucker Carlson Tonight.

Tucker Carlson has a good recap of Obamagate -- which Trump likes so much that he's pinned it to the top of his feed.

From yesterday: The FBI are sweating that they'll lose their ability to get illegal warrants through FISA, and are cursing the "Comeyites" for having destroyed the program through their corruption.

Oil.

That's more than enough on its own.

Hillary campaigned on hobbling American oil production. Trump campaigned on increasing it.

Russia funds 70% of its government through oil sales.

Putin would want an American president who helped keep oil prices high.

So Flynn will twist in the wind until this prick decides he's ready, so look for a hearing on this bullshit in October.

69 I know it's the legal term, but we really need a better fucking word than "unmask".

Unmasking is generally something the good guys do. So it just doesn't sound all that shocking to people.

You need to scare the average idiot into noticing stuff. Like how Trump did it, with words like "wiretap". Now... I know wiretapping is also something usually done by the good guys, BUT no one wants to be wiretapped so we all have an immediate revulsion to it. There is no such revulsion to the word "unmask".

Watch:

Wiretapgate
Unmaskgate

Only one of those sounds bad. In fact, you could argue that in these times people *want* to be unmasked. We need a better word.

Further, I don't believe in the inherent nobility of the FBI grunts any more than I believe most cops hold reverence to the individual rights of the accused. These are college educated cops with criminal justice degrees. Generally speaking, at best they're left libertarian in their outlook.

They may be embarrassed by their crooked bosses. They may believe they're on the side of right. But again, how many of them hold reverence to the individual rights of the accused when it's them swearing out a warrant or pushing someone to allow them to search their home or car?

As far as I know none of us participated in a government coup nor stood by and allowed one to happen. Some FBI did participate and they should be jailed. Some allowed an attempted coup and can never be trusted again.

I find Andrew McCarthy's explanation the one that requires the least amount to dependent assumptions.

Flynn was *in* intelligence. One of the only Trump appointees who was. Had he settled into his desk chair, he would have *spotted* the conspiracy right away.

He *had* to be taken out for the spying to continue.

202 I'm seeing red, this is so infuriating.

Wray should have just cut the cancer out immediately and started the healing, rather than trying to piece it together and hold it together and avoid bad press...in the long run...it was the wrong decision for the Bureau

This in a nutshell is US politicians and bureaucrats for the past fifty years: avoid the painful in favor of waiting and hoping things get better.

Also told that the rank and file in the field...remember completely disconnected from headquarters in DC...are "sick about what they are hearing was done to Flynn." They are also "pissed that this could eventually hurt their abilities in fighting for national security"

Tell you what, if the rank and file actually did something about the scumbags back in their DC headquarters, I'd have some sympathy. But they didn't, so I don't. Call me when a few of the high-level agents are found in the woods with bullets in their heads, or beaten into a coma, as a warning to others.

The feds' massive information dragnet is ostensibly for foreign intelligence. They snatch up everything, though, including data on citizens. As a result, when someone is reviewing information (call records, wiretaps, emails, etc.) with a foreign party - or if they target the wrong person, or their query is too broad, etc. - there will inevitably be information on citizens, too.

To be legal, the names of citizens are "masked" in the data. Names and identifying information are redacted. If there is legal cause (a FISA warrant, for example), these names and identifiers can be "unmasked" and exposed to the intelligence agent or cop who is reviewing the information.

This is who ordered unmasking on Flynn communications.

For the life of me, I don't know why he would have been involved with this.

I *know* this was a criminal conspiracy that tried to mask itself as a legitimate criminal/counter intelligence opperation.

But Joe had no *need to know* here. I mean, he wasn't the nominee. It was Hillary. He should have be completely cut out.

I mean, if I'm running some scam on the government or some crime scheme... I damn sure ain't going to tell my wife or neighbors about it if they aren't involved. I *could*, but why?

But, Joe decided he needed to stick his nose where it didn't to be.

He should have said "I don't want to know, I don't need to know, don't tell me ANYTHING."

And now he seems to be stuck to this.

Screw him.

Hope it costs you the election.

Hell, I hope it cost you your freedom via an indictment and conviction.

Posted by: Joe Mannix (Not a cop!) at May 13, 2020 02:42 PM (hYcqw)

296 unmasking defined: when FISA is being used to surveil Foreign Contacts, such as the Russian Ambassador, US Law is that any Americans on that call must have their names "masked" from the record, because of Constitutional provisions like the 4th amendment and the like. (You can't run secret investigation on American citizens without Probably Cause, dontcha know, or so the story goes)

SO if there is some special reason this person should be identified, this name can be "Unmasked", but the official who asks for that must record his name and the date he asked for this to be done, since it is supposed to be quite unusal and rare. These records show that the Obama administration was grossly abusing this power and using it to surveil hundreds of people, presumably all of their political opponents.

This is political corruption of the highest level, it truly is 100 times worse than any crime committed during Watergate.

309 "The FBI are sweating that they'll lose their ability to get illegal warrants through FISA, and are cursing the "Comeyites" for having destroyed the program through their corruption."

*eye roll*

FISA exists to get LEGAL warrants. Hence, judges, evidence, and legal standards. That FBI lied to the court doesn't make the court corrupt any more than if local police lied to a state judge to get a warrant under false pretenses.

The correct response is the release and exculpation of the victimized persons and punishment of the wrongdoing officers, not abolition of the court (which is what I constantly hear from people who, despite having literally never heard of FISA before all this, are all experts on the subject and are totally sure it needs to be eliminated).

It's worse than that, even. The government is pulling surveillance on everyone all the time anyway. It is "masked" but probably every phone call you have made for the past 15 years is in the system. Not the content of the call, probably, but the record of the call, who you talked to and for how long (this is the "metadata" that was so controversial back in the Bush 43 administration).

You don't even have to be incidental cross-collection in an investigation or dragnet. Your data is in there anyway. Anyone who wants to unmask you can, because the controls are broken.

the target, say, of biden's search, most likely was NOT flynn, but someone else. anyone related to flynn could also be spied upon based on the idiotic FISA concept.

2) Grassley/Johnson: The officials listed should confirm whether they reviewed this information, why they asked for it and what they did with it, and answer many other questions that have been raised by recent revelations.

3) Grassley/Johnson: We are making this public because the American people have a right to know what happened. We commend Acting DNI Grenell and Attorney General Barr for their transparency and responsiveness.

4) Grassley/Johnson: Our investigation of these matters has been ongoing for years, and as information finally comes to light, our focus on these issues is even more important now.

5) Grassley/Johnson: The records are one step forward in an important effort to get to the bottom of what the Obama administration did during the Russia investigation and to Lt. General Flynn.

6) Grassley/Johnson: The information identifies Dennis McDonough, Samantha Power, James Comey, John Brennan, and Joseph R. Biden, among others, as individuals who were potentially involved in the unmasking of Michael Flynn.

I doubt it. Here is what I think is going on. Grains of salt, etc. I'm just some asshole on the internet.

After the election, Obama kicked out the Russian diplomatic staff. I don't know if this was specifically targeted to entrap Flynn or just to beat the bushes and see what flew out. They were spying on him (as I am sure we do on all diplomats). In the aftermath of that, the ambassador (Kisliyak) called Flynn because Flynn was the incoming natsec chief. They saw the record, unmasked, identified Flynn, had the call transcribed and used it to justify additional unmaskings because now the "suspected Flynn to be a Russian agent."

As a bonus, they used the transcript to railroad Flynn for "lying to the FBI."

And despite decades of research and many billions (or trillions) of dollars thrown at it, there is still no AIDS vaccine, and no cure (although there are better treatments).

Oh - and this surveillance has been universally known to all since WWII, in some cases before.

And for the 1,000th time - the charge against Flynn was that he lied to FBI agents about the content of a call he and they knew, of course, was monitored and recorded. A facially absurd idea, regardless of every other factor and fact involved.

The "two-hop rule" is the most pernicious element of FISA.

For those who don't know, this rule says that the feds can peel back and expose communications (e.g., unmask, review recordings, all of it) for people up to "two hops" away from the target that has a FISA warrant against him. It also allows them to go back in time, not just forward from the time the warrant was approved.

Think about how big two hops are. Suppose I have a FISA warrant on me. I talk to my boss. That's hop 1. My boss talks to a congressional representative about a piece of upcoming legislation that is relevant to the firm. The rep is hop 2.

"Two hops" is *huge.*

Trump's doing this now because he knows he cannot beat Biden so he's trying to get him removed before the fall campaign.

Biden has been a champion of integrity in government for centuries. He can sniff out corruption. His mental focus is the stuff of legend, literally. He's got his finger in on the...well, let's skip his finger.

Given his celebrity status, and generous donations to Dems over the years, I'm sure Pres Trump thought that once the election was over that the country would go back to normal and he would have a normal presidency.

Who would have thought that the election was just the beginning of a nightmare presidency, in which the sore losers use the fearsome tools of the federal government to launch a coup against the new president?

The traitors have put the Trump family and the entire country through a political Waco. Use federal law enforcement to destroy those they hate. The more we learn, the more frightening this really is.

________________

Samantha Power has already denied that she knew about any of the hundreds of "unmaskings" that were done using her sign-in credentials. She was just the ambassador to the U.N., not part of the IC, and clearly had no legit reason to be asking for any of the unmaskings.

But it has never been revealed who used her creds, or how they acquired them, if she didn't do it, as she claims.

Plus, it could only be interference with administration policy if the policy had *been* retribution against the US by Russia.

That is what he tried to talk Kislyak down for. *Only* kick out an equivalent amount of diplomats, *don't* go overboard.

It's curious to find out that the American foreign policy was actually "Let us have it, Vlad."

Let's go with the simple answer: A true outsider with nothing to hide, and, therefore, no available leverage, had just been elected to be President.

The Political Country Club couldn't allow that, plus, these people are so used to hiding what they've been up to, they didn't dare have someone "not in the club" get an insiders view.

Given his celebrity status, and generous donations to Dems over the years, I'm sure Pres Trump thought that once the election was over that the country would go back to normal and he would have a normal presidency.

Who would have thought that the election was just the beginning of a nightmare presidency, in which the sore losers use the fearsome tools of the federal government to launch a coup against the new president?

The traitors have put the Trump family and the entire country through a political Waco. Use federal law enforcement to destroy those they hate. The more we learn, the more frightening this really is.
Posted by: Boots at May 13, 2020 03:00 PM (oGBso)


Trump is running into all of the anti-American factions and sellouts that have hated America since the end of World War II.

In the last 40 years, those enemies have systematically co-opted sub groups of Americans, some knowingly, some having no idea.

First it was the universities and public school unions. Control the thoughts of children, who don't know their unique American history, and are taught now to hate America.

Then, it was the national press. Control the daily message, protect one party, undermind the other party. Enough LIV's will follow. A vote is a vote.

In the last 15 years it is the Democrat party. They openly support Globalism and the general destruction of America - it's borders, citizens, and unique way of life.

And Trump got in the way and is stopping it.

NOW do you see why crashing the country's economy is justified in their eyes?

Their leaders sold out America long ago for pieces of silver, and their followers are too mis-informed and trained to hate America, to know the real plan is to take their way of life away.

There were hundreds of unmaskings done at the request of Samantha Power, who testified that she knew nothing about any of them.

So either the unknown requester intercepted the material and signed Power's name on the receipt before she saw it, or Power is lying, or the system was so corrupted that the security protocols were not being followed, or . . . some combination of all of the above.

Hard to see any scenario that Pres. Obama didn't know about what was being done to Flynn. For his Chief of Staff and Biden to be among the people requesting the unmasking takes this to a new level. #AmericansDeserveAnswers

Breaking news: senior Obama admin officials did their jobs. As @SallyQYates testified to Congress three years ago, there were concerns about Flynn's conduct on the call with Kislyak. If the Trump admin believes the transcript shows no wrongdoing, they should release it too.

@JohnWHuber

Retweeted Matthew Miller

Sally Yates testified that there were concerns about Flynn's "conduct" on the Kislayk call you say? The same Sally Yates that didn't even know about the call until she heard about it directly from President Obama? That Sally Yates?

Not an expert on this but I doubt this kind of data is on any kind of regular server. As I said above, it's most likely the same as SCI stuff in the Military which is usually hard copy paper only or stuff stored in a SCIF.


We could use CAC cards to access the high side in a SCIF but not everything was stored on that server, some of it was paper only that you had to ask the TS/SCI lady to go and dig out of the file cabinets.


You don't just walk around with this kind of stuff in your hand.

735 I am so fucking sick of hearing about how 'most of the FBI' is 'angry' or 'shocked' or 'disgusted' about what was happening.

Not a single one of you mother fuckers did a single thing about it. And still NOBODY within the FBI has done a thing about it.

Why do you think they're still using the arcane 302 process instead of RECORDING interviews?

Because then they wouldn't be able to lie about what was said.

You're only angry that you lost the TOTALLY UNDESERVED reputation you had for being consummate professionals.

741 Ric Grennel, acting head of the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI), might declassify the "suppressed evidence" of Putin's interest in a "RESET" with Hillary Clinton.

Do it. DO IT.

Posted by: butch at May 13, 2020 05:03 PM (hXu8T)

742 The whole "Putin wanted Trump" argument went against logic, did not pass the smell test, did not pass Occam's Razor. Like Russia was "scared" of Hillary and would rather have Trump as president - a wild card.

Even though Hillary/ Obama:
-Went around the world apologizing for the US.
-Unilaterally lifted the sanctions on Russia put in place by Bush for invading Georgia
-Unilaterally removed missiles from our Eastern European allies (with zero discussion with our allies) because Russia hated them
-Bill Clinton then did a series of speeches for Russian interests - direct bag men for Putin- at inflated rates of $500-$750K per speech. (Anyone that is subjected to conflict of interest laws know that money coming to a spouse is exactly the same as money coming to the person). So Russia had leverage over the Clintons.
-Uranium One and donation to the Clinton fund of $145MM by the parties involved
-The childish, naive, overly effusive "Reset" button incident, telling Putin just how weak they were
-Allowing Russia to invade the Ukraine - without saying anything
allowing Russia to shoot down a civilian airliner - with no consequences, and no harsh words to Russia, actually going along and helping them to get away with their "we know nothing" schtick.
-Not releasing military aid funds that Congress voted and then ordered them to deliver, instead delivering MRE's.
-Inviting Russia into Syria with the redline fiasco.
-Obama's quid pro quo with Putin - "lay low and help me get reelected and I will be more flexible to deliver favors to you"

And many more.

And we are supposed to believe that Russia wanted Trump as president and were "scared" of Hillary?

743 So what defense lawyer now is not going to assume that the FBI is just plain lying and will run a scorched earth discovery of Brady and Giglio material and will just completely slay any FBI agent testifying? Which will not be hunting for any and all electronic surveillance obtained through FISA? Which ones will not argue to the jury that the FBI cannot be trusted and will not find a couple receptive jurors? Remember what Johnnie Cochran did to the LAPD.
