Deep State, FBI, and FISA Developments
Back in November, I posted two essays on the Deep State. In the first essay, I attempted to try to both define and call attention the term Deep State (and its companion term, Shadow Government) and what it means to we the people. In my second essay, I referenced posts by "Q" anon on 4chan which related to the Deep State. Later "Q" moved to 8chan and is still posting there.
It has been three months since "Q" began posting and I am definitely of the opinion that "Q" is very close to President Trump, and is most likely more than one person, at least one whom has a military intelligence background. While this is difficult to prove beyond a shadow of a doubt, "Q" has predicted numerous events before they have happened and a good number of Trump's tweets have used the same words or phrases that had appeared earlier in "Q" posts.
On November 17,2016, ten days after Trump won the Presidential election, Admiral Mike Rodgers, head of the NSA, paid a visit to Donald Trump in New York City. Rodgers did not notify President Obama of this visit. It is believed that Rodgers went to visit Trump to notify him that he was being "wiretapped."
Sometimes the utilization of Timelines means you have to look at the new information with a keen awareness of specific events. In hindsight, NSA Director Admiral Mike Rogers may have notified Team Trump of Obama’s Intelligence Community (James Clapper and John Brennan) spying on their activity.
As you look at the FISA request dates below, it’s important to note that NSA Director Admiral Mike Rogers would be keenly aware of both the June request – Denied, and the October request – Granted. Pay specific attention to the October request. “
Recently, information has come out in the form of an internal House memo that relates to the election and possible conspiracy against Donald Trump. As of the writing of this essay (Monday, January 29 at 3:00 pm), the memo has not yet been released although there are rumors that the House Intelligence Committee chaired by Republican Devin Nunes is planning on a public release of the memo no later than next week. I personally believe that it will be released tomorrow in advance of the State of the Union address. Republicans have characterized the memo as explosive with most pundits believing that one of the main revelations will be the Obama administration's abuse of FISA as a means to spy upon the Trump campaign.
The FISA warrants were issued based upon the contents of an opposition research dossier produced by former British spy Christopher Steele. Steele was hired by the Clinton campaign through a third party, Fusion GPS, who was contracted and paid by the DNC's law firm, Perkins Coie.
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, California Republican, signed a subpoena for Fusion’s bank records. He wanted to determine who bankrolled a partisan unproven dossier that has become such a large part of the FBI’s, Congress’ and journalists’ investigations.
The Nunes subpoena forced the law firm Perkins Coie to admit that the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton campaign paid the bills. The money went from Democrats to Perkins Coie to Fusion to British ex-spy Christopher Steele, who then paid Kremlin sources for dirt on Mr. Trump.
None of Mr. Steele’s core charges of collusion has been publicly confirmed.
While it is not known if the FISA court was aware of the dossier being an opposition paper contracted by and paid for by the Clinton campaign through third parties, it is evident that a number of very highly placed members in the Obama administration (and even perhaps Obama himself) were definitely aware of the dossier, including upper ranks of the FBI and Justice Departments.
The Washington Post has reported that Steele’s reports were first transmitted “by an intermediary” to the FBI and other U.S. intelligence officials after the Democratic National Convention (which, to repeat, ended on July 28). The intermediary is not identified. We do not know if it was Fusion, though that seems likely given that Fusion shared its work with government and non-government entities. Steele himself is also said to have contacted “a friend in the FBI” about his research after the Democratic convention.
We do know from the several hundred released text messages of over 50,000 that were exchanged between paramours Peter Strzok and Lisa Page of the FBI, that there was extreme bias at the upper levels of the agency. Strzok and Page implicated through their exchanges, Andrew McCabe, number two man at the FBI, and Bill Priestap, director of counter intelligence at the FBI and Peter Strzok's immediate superivsor. McCabe resigned from the FBI today, January 29, 2018.
Peter Strzok was the deputy director for counterintelligence under Bill Priestap. He was also the author of the Comey memo which "exonerated" Hillary Clinton of wrong doing regarding her emails. Strzok wrote the Comey memo before Clinton was ever interviewed by the FBI. He also participated in that interview of Clinton.
Peter Strzok was the head FBI Agent in charge of the ‘Clinton Operation’ (exoneration), and ‘Trump Operation’ (political surveillance). Strzok reported to the FBI Director of Counterintelligence, Bill Priestap. Lisa Page was the DOJ attorney assigned to the FBI and key legal aide for FBI Asst. Director Andrew “Andy” McCabe.
There is so much more that I could write, especially with some of the most recent "Q" posts. But based upon the text messages that have been released thus far, there appears to be a concerted effort by individuals high in the FBI and DOJ to prevent the election of Donald Trump and then to set him up for removal from office based upon a dossier that was compiled from gossip and much of which was falsely promoted with absolutely zero documentation for the charges contained within it.
Think what you want of Donald Trump. I personally abhor most of his policies, but I also believe in abiding by the political process. The bottom line is that Trump was the duly elected by the people as President of the United States and any effort to bring him down based upon completely undocumented information is symptomatic of a totally corrupted deep state within our government.
Depending upon how this story proceeds, I may do a follow up with some of the more recent "Q" anon posts that hint at a potential assassination plot.
