Notes of a Meeting Between FBI and DOJ Reveal FBI Repeatedly Lying to Justify Trump Investigation
Hillary Clinton's Toady Robbie Mook Admits Hilary Clinton Approved the Alfa Bank Hoax, But Claims She Didn't Order Sussman to Take it to the FBI

Sussman revealed them as part of his defense, having gotten them via subpoena from Durham.


The notes reveal a pattern of repeated lies and omissions by FBI leadership to DOJ officials that concealed the dramatic deterioration of the predicate for the Crossfire Hurricane investigation. As the predication deteriorated, so too was the purported justification for Comey's public reveal of the Crossfire Hurricane investigation.

The significance of the FBI's lies was accentuated this week at Sussmann's trial when Scott Hellman, an FBI cyber analyst, testified that he knew right away in September 2016 that Sussmann's data did not suggest any covert communications between Trump and Russia. Hellman added that he wondered if the person who put together the data was suffering from a mental disability.

Hellman's testimony is the clearest evidence yet that the FBI knew from the start that one of the two major components of the Trump Russia collusion narrative -- the Alfa Bank data -- was false. As the March 6 notes show, they concealed this fact from their DOJ superiors.

The other major component of the investigation was the Steele dossier. The FBI knew from a January 2017 interview of Igor Danchenko, Christopher Steele's "Primary Sub-Source" through whom all the allegations in the Steele dossier were originated or channeled, that the dossier too was false.

I'll refer you to the Federalist for details about this. In short, the Steele Dossier lied about having Sergei Mllian as a source, instead relying on a Democrat-connected, Hillary-supporting US resident named Igor Danchenoko for rumors and made-up "tips."

...


The FBI appears to have concealed these matters from the DOJ. In fact, it does not appear from the March 6 notes that the FBI ever mentioned Danchenko. Despite Danchenko's disavowal of the dossier as of March 6, it remained as the main component of the overall Crossfire Hurricane investigation, including being the basis of two Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrants against Trump campaign aide Carter Page.

The March 6 notes also reveal that FBI leadership told DOJ officials that the Page FISA application had been "fruitful" even though it had turned up nothing of significance. Page was never charged with, or even accused of, any offense and is now suing the DOJ for damages.

FBI leadership also pushed the narrative on their DOJ counterparts that the dossier was "CROWN reporting," implying that the dossier was an official United Kingdom intelligence product when it was actually made-up stories and gossip and paid for by the Clinton campaign -- a fact the FBI knew from their Danchenko interview.

The FBI also tried to claim that this "CROWN reporting" connected Trump to some windfall in "Russian energy stocks." This was another lie.

Read the article for further lies.

This emergency meeting was precipitated by Trump's tweet in which he revealed that he knew that Obama's minions were wiretapping him at Trump hotel.

They wanted to figure out how much Trump knew about their bogus probe, and what to do next.


In reality, Trump's tweet probably just restated what Levin had said. But the fact that the FBI did not know how much Trump knew meant FBI leadership had a choice to make. They could either downplay the investigation with a view to wrapping it up or they could double down even though they had not found any incriminating evidence.

They chose to double down, with Comey going on offense in the immediate aftermath of the March 6 meeting. Aside from giving narrative-shaping briefings to congressional leaders, Comey publicly disclosed the existence of the Trump Russia investigation, ensuring a media frenzy. That frenzy ultimately led to the appointment of Mueller on May 17, 2017.

While we have become accustomed to false statements charges being filed against Trump associates such as Roger Stone, Papadopoulos, and Michael Flynn, those same charges are also applicable to false statements or concealment of material facts by FBI officials to DOJ officials in the conduct of their supervision of FBI investigations.

It is perplexing that no one within the FBI has been held accountable for the many lies told at the March 6 meeting. This fact is all the more perplexing as it was Durham who originally turned over the March 6 notes to Sussmann's defense team.

The article notes that William Barr declined to prosecute Andrew McCabe for lying in an official investigation.

It notes now that these notes -- which show further FBI lying, and calculated, premeditated, coordinated lying intended to corruptly influence the DOJ into starting an unwarranted investigation -- were concealed from the public until just now, after the five-year statute of limitations for obstruction of justice/lying to federal investigators had run out.

The question is why the DOJ -- and Durham in particular -- gave the FBI a free pass. The uncomfortable answer may be that, as has been suspected for a while, Durham's authority is effectively limited to private actors such as Sussmann and Danchenko and does not extend to public officials such as McCabe and Strzok.

I can think of a more uncomfortable answer: The Guild protects the Guild.

The "agents of Justice" will never face Justice themselves. Never.

Meanwhile, in the Michael Sussman trial, Hillary Clinton campaign manager and Weedy Gollum Robbie Mook admitted-- bragged, really -- that Hillary Clinton approved the "Alfa Bank" hoax story.

Despite her campaign not having confidence that her lies were true.

Via Fox:


Former Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook testified Friday that then-Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton approved the dissemination of materials alleging a covert communications channel between the Trump Organization and Russia's Alfa Bank to the media, despite campaign officials not being "totally confident" in the legitimacy of the data.

Former FBI General Counsel James Baker testified Thursday that the bureau investigated the data alleging a Trump connection to the Kremlin-linked bank, and found that "there was nothing there."


Mook was called to the stand for testimony by Michael Sussmann's defense Friday.

During cross-examination by government prosecutor Andrew DeFillippis Friday, Mook was asked about the campaign's understanding of the Alfa Bank allegations against Trump and whether they planned to release the data to the media....

He also said he discussed whether to give the information to a reporter with senior campaign officials, including campaign chairman John Podesta, senior policy advisor, now White House National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan, and communications director Jennifer Palmieri.

"I discussed it with Hillary as well," Mook said.
"I don't remember the substance of the conversation, but notionally, the discussion was, hey, we have this and we want to share it with a reporter," Mook said.

The government asked Mook if Clinton approved "the dissemination" of the data to the media.

"She agreed," Mook testified.

Mook later said he "can't recall the exact sequence of events," when asked if he shared the idea to give the Trump-Alfa Bank allegations to the media with Clinton before or after the decision was made.


"All I remember is that she agreed with the decision," Mook testified.

Via Politico, he also claimed that Hillary did not direct Sussman to take this lie to the FBI, supposedly.

The lie they've agreed to is that they wanted to bring this story to the media, not the FBI:

"Going to the FBI does not seem like a very effective way to get that information out to the public. We do that through the media," he said.

Mook said that after discussions at the highest levels of the campaign, they decided to do just that. He also said that somewhere around that time he informed Clinton personally and she concurred.

"I discussed it with Hillary as well," Mook said. "She agreed to that.... She thought we made the right decision."

Put this rancid c**t under oath and make her testify to that.

So Sussman's defense is, "Going to the FBI was my own idea, so I wasn't lying when I said I wasn't representing a client for that hour I was at the Bureau."

Even though he would subsequently bill his time delivering this hoax to the FBI to Hillary Clinton and her law firm, who were his clients.

As far as I know, Durham's authority comes from Bill Barr, and Barr absolutely was and is a Deep State fixer. So when people are critical of Durham, I would at least consider the possibility if he was one of the fixers himself, it would be a helluva lot easier for him to just walk away at this point, as no one else is urging him to continue from within the Biden DoJ.

He would probably have been put on ice. As in a slab. As in a mortuary drawer. Not to mention that the utter collapse of government would have likely occurred, too, as the agencies openly and publicly disregarded orders and went on a public counteroffensive. They didn't start nakedly disobeying orders until near the end, and even then it wasn't all that public. Had he gone after Hill-dog, that would have played out differently.

Trump had a choice -- go after Hillary or try to get his agenda done.

Both things couldn't have happpened.

He (naively) thought that both Rs and Ds wanted what was best for the country and that they could find compromises. He didn't realize that both parties (at least the elected members in DC) only care about themselves and lining their own pockets, even if that means selling the USA out to China.

Eventually, they may. But not because of this. And not in a manner acceptable to the Boomer Right that insists on letting the process play out.

That's the problem. That's one of the big disconnects Trump has, and those generations have in general. Life isn't Perry Mason. There's not going to be a trial, a big revelation, and some kind of Earth shattering rush to justice as a result of an "I ordered the Code Red" admission on the stand.

Because there's no collective will to do anything about this. And there's no collective will because the aggrieved player, Trump, sat on his ass and didn't come out guns blazing in a timely manner with a focus on delivering that message. Because he can't. He can't focus on anything other than egotistical outrage.

Every day that passed from the moment Trump knew he was wire tapped was a win for the wire tappers. Just like every day that passed after Election Day was a win for those that stole the election. Anyone that tells you different is just pumping sunshine.

There is no way they win on the evidence. The indictment is a single case of lying to the FBI about whether or not Sussmann was working on behalf of a client.

148 "The wives of Ukrainian defenders of the Azovstal steel plant in Mariupol have appealed to Turkey to help secure the safety of their husbands.

The women expressed hope on Friday that Turkey will become a guarantor of the security of the Ukrainian soldiers and return them home from captivity in Russia."

Turkey has been the main mediator through this conflict, which is sort of interesting to see.

Not saying Trump wouldn't have had political problems, but it was obvious Trump was both going to let "bygones be bygones", ask for the same Deep State operators to stay on, and even indulge them with Mueller while his AG recused himself.

Trump really fucked up every which way and it completely bogged down his Presidency.

I can tell you why. Unless you are prepared to let the Dems run the next couple of election cycles unhindered for them to set up something like the PRI did in Mexico, it is a non starter. Effectively due to laws in the 50 states and the first past the post requirement, any challenge to the two party duopoly by a new party is doomed to fail. The Republican party itself rose after the Whigs foundered when there was universal suffrage and few ballot access laws for candidates. Today is a different story. Everything from election judges, ballot access, access to voting records, compliance with the myriad campaign laws for candidates and fundraising, etc. are all written for two major parties. The division of power in Congress and state legislatures, ditto.

Isn't the statute of limitations extended to the last act of a conspiracy, if there is a criminal conspiracy? Seems like the last act involved in burying this perfidy was quite recent, since it just came out now. And it seems like more than one person was involved, and they were coordinating.

I still expect no charges and less jail time, but "statute of limitations" shouldn't bury it all. "No reasonable prosecutor" is the gold standard for this one.

221 Trump wasn't much different than "W", other than a matter of degree. They both did the same thing. Turtled up and hoped history would exonerate them. Helpful Hint, Geniuses, history is written by the winners. Win - then talk about how you were right.

Yeah no. The true story is that Republicans in Congress at the leadership level and many rank and file Senators/Representatives wanted Trump gone and replaced with Pence. Strzok even alluded to this via the insurance policy. The second to blame is that Rudy had delusions of grandeur and wanted to be Secretary of State--not AG. Third is Jeffey Sessions himself who did not tell Trump about his forthcoming recusal in favor of the rat Rosenstein. Trump comes in at a minor level and even the sainted Reagan faced the Iran Contra along with GHWB with Lawrence Walsh. The only reason the independent prosecutor law went by the wayside was the widespread criminality of the Clinton Admin and the application of that law to them.

222 The whole point of taunting your adversary like when Trump said if he was president Hillary would be in jail, is that you get them to emotionally overreact and make mistakes which you are recording so that when you have enough and are ready to go full count of Monte Cristo on them. I stead he taunted a snake and then turned his back on her. I don't get it. Is this like a billionaire new Yorker Blindspot? Has he just had bodyguards for too long?

A man that looks at his title, the org chart, and assumes when he says jump everyone will ask how high because it says so on the piece of paper in front of him.

Put everybody on a plane crash on a Pacific Island, and Donald Trump doesn't last five minutes.

Lock Her Up was very obvious campaign persuasion. And damn good persuasion at that.

No one expected him to arrest his opponent after beating her; however well deserved, that's Third World country stuff and it wouldn't have flown.

When you consider absolutely nothing was going to happen to her if he did try to lock her up, it would have been a massive waste of time and energy. Lot of strategists who never even expected Trump to win giving him advice on what he should have done.

I agree, but I think it became obvious rather quickly it was just an obvious which hunt.

I remember almost every single commenter here basically echoing the same thing, Trump was getting bogged down and he needed to end it.

Essentially, we are playing for time here. The forces against the American people are almost all its institutions, its 'allied' countries, its titular 'enemies' and wealthy oligarchs world wide. To change a regime (without destroying the underlying rationale of the American Constitution via something like a revolution) means people replacement in those institutions. It will be tough, take time, and require people forgo their interests in their personal lives--even their lives, fortunes, and sacred honor. We need wholesale replacement of officeholders in the GOP from the party infrastructure, the leaders of that party in the legislative branches, and chasing off the donor class to their natural homes in the Dem party. That requires something like individuals banding together and ignoring the stupid Conservative Media TM hits, the stupid flyers, GOP deepthinkers on the media, and so on. It can be done. Read R. Heinlein's Take Back Your Government for how.

We need to start working right now preparing for a Trump victory in 2024. Someone, some right wing billionaire, needs to fund a center where the new government can be organized. Trump needs to realize he can't change anything picking people out of the deep state, so an all new (to Washington) administration needs to be found and funded so that things can happen on day one.

Moving almost all agencies out of Washington has to be one of the top priorities. Pick the red state they most belong in and give the order to move on inauguration day. Forget about cabinet secretaries who know how the agencies work and hire people who know how the agencies are suppose to work. Make sure the congress has the legislation either passed or ready to pass that gives the president and his cabinet full power about hiring and especially firing existing federal workers.

Have a new DOJ in the wings, ready to take over and prosecute all the political crimes that have been committed over the past administration. Show the public that the rule of law actually works.

Clean out the FBI, CIA, State Department and IRS of the criminals that have been running them.

I don't care what you do. It is absurd to think in the environment Trump was in at the time he could have just fired the head of the FBI, fired the special counsel and anyone else he wanted when the majority of the country was being told he was a Russian agent and everything would have been hunky dory.

At that point Trump wasn't even that well liked by most in his party in DC. He had to have his name cleared or he was doomed. Sometimes you get dealt a shitty hand and he did but he won anyway.

301 meeting that he was not representing any particular clients.
==
ring me when his clients come and and testify that we sent him there to do that thing at that time
or
when they produce the date, and to the minute specific bill for the meeting with the CIA agents generated by sussman

==
he is saying that he was on his own time -- is reasonable doubt unless you have :
1. Him saying otherwise under oath elsewhere
2. Client comes in to testify we sent him there for that thing
3. The bill specifically says date time and place meeting with CIA agents -

otherwise he's arguably free to report potential crimes to the authorities that are not his clients.

But the coup and its aftermath have been short-term catastrophic. It may well be long-term, too.

I'm not arguing that he could. I'm just restating something that everyone knows. But it's so shocking that I just keep going back to it. That there is so much disparity between the left and the right. If all decorum is only applied to the right then the left will lose all decorum. If all law is applied only to the right then the left must become lawless.

The left has created a system in which the only outcome is for them to be driven to worse and worse states. It was to get an advantage over the right. But it has irrevocably changed what the left is or will be. A rachet is a mechanism that's often used for movement. Apply a random signal to a rachet and it will move steadily along in one direction where normally it would just randomly walk. The left is devolving.

371 The presumption you are making is that just because he had clients, and did work on their behalf, it means that it is a lie for him to have said: "I am not here on behalf of clients". I'm here on my on behalf. Also, not sure that lying to CIA is a crime actually.

I'm not here on behalf of clients may be a true statement even if he had clients.
You can have clients and then do something on your own behalf.

All he has to do is have reasonable doubt. SO far
None of his clients said we sent him. none. Or, did he say elsewhere that he did so for a client (under oath - because he's not testifying and you aint getting in hearsay) and there evidentiary problems still with that. Or, a specific date time bill to the hour/minute where he billed a client for the same time.

Block bill for the day probably not gonna be enough.

And Trump’s supporters are far more level-headed and patriotic than those of Obama, Biden, etc. In fact, that’s why I count myself one of Trump’s more fervent supporters — not on account of the flawed (like all of us) man himself, but for the sake of the hard-working, no-nonsense, patriotic traditional America that he represents, and that the Left and the Uniparty have so ignominiously abandoned.

Psychologically, aside from hired trolls, disruption trolls have a personal need to divert conversations about a topic to something that they want to say. Some are relatively harmless like diverting any conversation about something to Star Trek, boobies, or some other perennial topic. Others intend to try to stake their claim to intellectual dominance by simply driving everyone away from the argument by disgust--insults and implications of foul motives are key in this when the disruptor troll is called out. This is designed to cause people to tune out, others to become argumentative in kind, and to forget what the original post was about anyway.

Ideology. Trump is Make America Great Again. He's a Nationalist. Nothing wrong with that. But he's not balanced, no ideologue is. Hence, he'll wade in slinging cruise missiles in Syria.

Joey Retard is a place-holder. But the cabal that's speaking through him are also ideologues, just various degrees of Globalists. And that's why we're shipping baby formula to the borders and refined gas to Europe.

All ideology. They don't care about results. They don't even measure results. They just push a button because that button has to be right. And that's why they push it. The button is right in and of itself.

Trump couldn't do anything different once he took the Oval Office. He won't do anything different if he gets it again. Because of ideology. He's what he is and he won't change.

Most jury prognostications are worthless unless you are actually observing the trial and the evidence presented. I try to not engage in that sort of predictions. The judge's instructions to the jury make it more clear along with the evidence admitted before them. If in the courtroom itself, you can also observe the jury's reaction to pertinent information. One extreme example is a women smiling at the defendants in the Menedez murder cases in California. That woman went on to date on the defendants after the mistrial but before their subsequent conviction.

Branga is perhaps one of the few that actually takes the time to break down trials and present the key portions of evidence and video of it along with explaining the law. Trials are very tricky things to predict cold based on political leanings.

Essentially, we are playing for time here. The forces against the American people are almost all its institutions, its 'allied' countries, its titular 'enemies' and wealthy oligarchs world wide. To change a regime (without destroying the underlying rationale of the American Constitution via something like a revolution) means people replacement in those institutions. It will be tough, take time, and require people forgo their interests in their personal lives--even their lives, fortunes, and sacred honor. We need wholesale replacement of officeholders in the GOP from the party infrastructure...
