👀: “the FBI agent answered, “Don’t worry, if you keep your mouth shut, nothing will happen” …. the shop owner gave the original hard drive to the FBI, but also made four copies, leaving two “with friends of his in case he was killed.””
Documents that have been declassified by the Director of National Intelligence show that then_CIA chief John Brennan briefed Barack Obama on “Hillary Clinton’s purported ‘plan’ to tie then-candidate Donald Trump to Russia as ‘a means of distracting the public from her use of a private email server,” according to a report from Fox.
Did I miss something? Does anybody know what @RealDonaldTrump meant in the debate when he said “we have it all on tape”?@SharylAttkisson.
Carter Page was a CIA asset, not a Russian spy, and the FBI knew it early on but plowed ahead with its fantasy anyway.
Author’s Note: This is the first of a three-part series.
To answer the question posed in last Tuesday’s column, Yes, Kevin Clinesmith did plead guilty Wednesday. Sort of.
Well, maybe it was a smidge better than “sort of.” After all, it did happen in a federal-district-court proceeding (via videoconference) on Wednesday. And Judge James Boasberg did accept the plea after eliciting it in accordance with settled criminal-law rules. Sentencing is scheduled for December 10. So it’s official.
According to reports in November of 2019, U.S Attorney John Durham and U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr were spending time on a narrowed focus looking carefully at CIA activity in the 2016 presidential election. One recent quote from a media-voice increasingly sympathetic to a political deep-state notes:
“One British official with knowledge of Barr’s wish list presented to London commented that “it is like nothing we have come across before, they are basically asking, in quite robust terms, for help in doing a hatchet job on their own intelligence services””. (Link)
It is interesting that quote came from a British intelligence official, as there appears to be evidence of an extensive CIA operation that likely involved U.K. intelligence services. In addition, and as a direct outcome, there is an aspect to the CIA operation that overlaps with both a U.S. and U.K. need to keep Wikileaks founder Julian Assange under tight control. In this outline we will explain where corrupt U.S. and U.K. interests merge.
Kevin Clinesmith, a former top lawyer in James Comey’s FBI, pleaded guilty on Friday to falsifying a federal spy warrant against Carter Page.
