Chapter Forty Eight
“Congress asks for a Second Prosecutor to investigate the DOJ, FBI, and Special Prosecutor Mueller”

 

History repeats itself…

And time is the arbiter of all…

All things indeed are bound by time, including history and man…

Greek philosophers including Zeno, Plato and Aristotle always pondered and thought deeply about time but to no avail except to become Stoic and pensive about it as they aged and saw life and daylight being wasted as they advanced their concentric circles of thought phenomena…

But they taught others about it and that is important…

The mathematician and gifted astronomer Hypatia of Alexandria defined time as the only deistic vision she had of the stars and the heavens and she was punished for her views with death under the Christian Taliban zealots of her era…

Others many years later, like St Augustine of Hippo, expressed a more internalized view of time, as words and actions, and questioned the existence of “past” and “future.”

This was indeed a radical view of time, even for such an amazing man of faith, wisdom,  and Christian knowledge. Radically for his era, he saw time as a purely mental phenomenon.

In 1860, zoologist Karl Ernst Von Baer pondered the duration of “now” and challenged prevalent notions of persistence. He told the Russian Philosophical Society that “nothing lasts” not even mountains.

English philosopher and mathematician Russel, saw time as an impediment to our thought processes because eternal and Godly cannot easily be understood in terms of time and space.

US philosopher, polymath, poet, and all around Renaissance man, William James had an influential chapter on time perception: Being always skeptical of time as something concrete, he perceived only a “series of durations” such as empty moments don’t exist; your thoughts fill them. He quotes E.R. Clay, saying that people live in an illusory “specious present.”

Later philosophers such as Martin Heidegger (1889-1976), embraced a similarly subjective view of time.

Today’s accepted Physics agrees with the ancient view of time, as per Albert Einstein’s theory of special relativity, the faster you move, the more time slows. Astronauts in orbit and jet plane passengers age fractionally more slowly than people on the ground. The 24 time zones with “time zero” at Greenwich offer a clear definition of noon, the sun in its zenith everywhere on this rotating planet. With jet lag, your body’s internal clocks de-synchronize. Eating in-flight meals on your destination’s timetable may help. Humans who go to Mars will find the days 39 minutes longer than on Earth.

One study says human circadian rhythms can’t adapt, but others show acclimatization via gradual exposure to sun-equivalent light on a Mars schedule.

Yet in today’s time, the day started auspiciously with the announcement of the revocation of special privileges for ex-CIA chief Mr Brennan… who lost his Security Clearance for the United States highest security level of trust because of his timely nature to be an ass all the time 24/7/365 and to be willing to endanger this country always with his crazy Communist and Islamic Jihaddist world view.

This lying moron has not seen a radical view of the world that he didn’t espouse for reasons of plain old fashion insanity.

No wonder — with him being such a loud, foul, and crazy mouth — he lost his credentials to the safekeeping of our treasures of intelligence and valuable information. Right?

And although much furore has been aroused because of that — President Trump was completely correct and within his rights to revoke the security clearance of former CIA Director John Brennan, because Brennan, who now works as a national security analyst for MSNBC and NBC News, and frequently appears on TV, has no business browsing through our country’s most important and sensitive national security secrets — especially if he is unhinged and also as he appears on air he is liable to disseminate widely those secrets we hold dear…

Clearance to classified information is granted based on a “need to know.” Brennan has none, so there was no reason to allow him continued access. He does have a long pattern of misuse of his authority and lying about it.

It has been customary to allow former senior officials to keep their clearances so current officials can consult with them. No one in the Trump administration is or should be consulting with someone as partisan as Brennan, so pulling his clearance was right and proper.

Some are claiming this is political retribution, but the overtly political nature of Brennan’s attempts to undermine the Trump administration are a real problem. And even if he had a reason to keep his clearance, his actions and statements are grounds to cut him off.

Extending Brennan’s clearance was a privilege no longer justified by any value he provides to the government. His unhinged rants against President Trump would land any serving clearance holder with a suspension and possibly even a referral for psychiatric evaluation.

Amongst the many unhinged rants by Mr Brennan, we ought to include his unfounded claim on national television that President Trump is being blackmailed by Russian President Vladimir Putin. This is a gross distortion of reality and having Brennan, saying the Russians “may have something” on President Trump, and also having Brennan tweeting that kind of crap — does not represent the normal communications of a mentally stable person.

To cite just one other example, John Brennan tweeted in March, directing his comments to President Trump: “When the full extent of your venality, moral turpitude, and political corruption becomes known, you will take your rightful place as a disgraced demagogue in the dustbin of history. You may scapegoat Andy McCabe, but you will not destroy America … America will triumph over you.”

Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., pointed out that Brennan has a history of unethical actions around classified information and has also often times lied to Congress itself. Paul stated: “I filibustered Brennan’s nomination to head the CIA in 2013, and his behavior in government and out of it demonstrate why he should not be allowed near classified information.”

Paul also questioned Brennan’s role as a paid TV commentator, tweeting last month: “Is John Brennan monetizing his security clearance? Is John Brennan making millions of dollars divulging secrets to the mainstream media with his attacks on our President Donald J Trump?”

I recognize that revoking security clearances could set a bad precedent for future administrations. A Democratic president could pull clearances of former officials who worked under a Republican president — but this is clearly not tit-for-tat. This is about protecting our national security. Nothing else.

Still the blame for the revocation of Brennan’s security clearance lies with Brennan himself – and not with President Donald Trump. Brennan is not being punished for his political views. He is being removed from any proximity to vital information because he has shown quite clearly and over time that he cannot be trusted with it.

Brennan is widely believed to have been a source for media outlets reporting on the Trump-Russia hoax and fake news scandal. If Brennan leaked classified information, that would be enough of a cause in order to take away his clearance.

It is almost certain that the Trump administration is conducting a counterintelligence investigation of Brennan to ascertain if – or more likely, how much – he leaked classified information. This investigation may have already led to more reasons to revoke his clearance than officials can make public.

Brennan is a dedicated member of the anti-Trump “resistance” which is chockfull of people who actively oppose America’s very nature. If he has shared his inside information with them, we have no idea where it could have spread. We need a full accounting of all his actions and if there were crimes committed he should feel the full weight of the criminal justice system.

Brennan had every right to oppose the Trump administration and speak publicly about it. No one has limited his freedom of speech or ability to criticize.

Brennan the former government official, and current TV commentator, and sadly unhinged partisan for Hillary Clinton, acted as a political activist who has just lost a security clearance that he no longer has any reason to be enjoying, because his awfully sloppy and insecure handling of classified information, along with his conspiratorial tendencies, and his main role in the attempted Coup D’Etat against our Republic — all deserve a full and thorough investigation.

At the very least he will become fodder for the mill of the Second Special Prosecutor that will be convened to arrange for the Investigation of this Coup D’Etat that is still ongoing in our country.

Now let us take a little break from all the coverage of Mueller’s “Russia” hoax investigation and assorted witch-hunt, and see what REAL Russian “meddling” looks like, because the life mission of dirty cop Robert Mueller seems to be setting up President Trump for “GOTCHA” moment.

Mueller cares nothing for our Republic and he just wants to perpetuate his Coup D’Etat unimpeded by any propriety and any lawful conduct so long as he can set-up the President who he dislikes venally, on the road to prosecution or impeachment. And he thinks that he can accomplish this by putting his former campaign manager on trial, for old bank loan applications, for some kind of fraud, and for tax charges – decades old and irrelevant to the Donald Trump campaign.

SO instead of that time waster, let us now take a look at a very real example of high-level Russian spying on Americans. This stunning new story from The Guardian reflects the kind of infiltration we ought to be investigating, instead of wasting precious time and resources of a plain old witch-hunt, resulting from a Russian hoax.

Because we now know that real Russian spying of current time, has resulted in access to some of our most highly classified information, even the President’s daily schedule. While the Mueller team is wasting time showing jurors pictures of Manafort’s closet, and his expensive suits, and threatening him with life in prison, in order to get him to offer up his former boss’ head on a platter, like St John’s — this is a story of very real Russian “meddling” that is emergent and fresh off the real time machine called the NOW.

But since this real Russian spying story is a huge embarrassment to the FBI, CIA, NSA, and assorted US security apparatus and questionable intelligence (?) community, and perhaps even an unwelcome distraction from the “get-Trump” narrative, having nothing whatsoever to do with Trump — we probably won’t be hearing much about it form the MSM and the leftist Clinton News Network others known as CNN.

And yes it’s the British press that uncovered this Russian meddling story and broke it wide open, because across the pond there is some real journalism still going on amongst the old fashioned newspaper hounds of Fleet street and the Manchester GUARDIAN, even in their new digs at the St Pancras KingsCross canal front glass building.

It was form here that investigative reporter Nick Hopkins has learned that for more than a decade, a Russian national was working undetected as an alleged spy at the American embassy in Moscow. She was hired by the Secret Service –- we still don’t have the details surrounding her hiring or how (if?) she was vetted –- and she didn’t come under suspicion until 2016, when the State Department’s Regional Security Office conducted a routine security sweep of the London, Paris and Moscow offices.

They made their report in January of 2017, but instead of launching an inquiry, which might have ended up making them look bad, the Secret Service just revoked her security clearance last summer and quietly let her go.

Her dismissal attracted essentially no attention at the time because it conveniently occurred when the Kremlin was demanding an expulsion of diplomatic personnel in the wake of new Washington-imposed sanctions. Over 750 out of 1,200 employees lost their positions, and the downsizing was used as cover to make it it look as though she was just part of it.

According to the Guardian’s source, “The Secret Service is trying to hide the breach by firing her. The damage was already done but the senior management of the Secret Service did not conduct any internal investigation to assess the damage and to see if she had recruited any other employees to provide her with more information. Only an intense investigation by an outside source can determine the damage she has done.

So, there may be more spying going on at our embassy in Moscow.

Oh, goody.

When the Secret Service was pressed for details, they released a statement downplaying the role this woman played. “At no time,” it said, “in any US Secret Service office, have FSNs [foreign service nationals] been provided or placed in a position to obtain national security information.”

Right, and Peter Strzok voted for Donald Trump. The State Department refused to comment on allegations related to intelligence or personnel matters, but acknowledged “that US government employees, by virtue of their employment with the US government, may be targeted by foreign intelligence services…when we identify an employee in violation of security directives, we take appropriate action at the appropriate time.” In other words, this woman WAS in a position to gain information from Americans working at the embassy. To admit that fact completely negates the lame attempt at reassurance offered by the Secret Service.

According to the source, this woman had a role that gave her insight into ongoing Secret Service investigations, and her position gave her access to the Secret Service intranet. Through this official email system, she had access to the schedule of the Presidents (current and former), the Vice Presidents, and their spouses, including Hillary Clinton and Billy-goat Clinton himself…

The woman went against the rules by interacting with several embassy employees on her personal email. There’s no telling what information she was able to glean from conversations with Americans. She apparently operated with very little supervision and was having “numerous unsanctioned meetings and communications” with the FSB, Russia’s principal security agency, and that’s what aroused suspicion.

To top it all off, once the Secret Service was on to her, the potential breach was not reported to any of the congressional oversight committees for fear of embarrassment of the secret service and of the State department.

Methinks that there needs to be a serious look at why the Secret Service hid what happened and failed to conduct a really thorough internal investigation on this serious breach of security and an instance of true Russian espionage.

Of course, the special counsel Robert Mueller who is specifically charged with investigating “Russian meddling” and espionage, could look into it. After all, he and his team, have all the necessary mandates, the requisite security clearances, and their mission statement is to investigate what the Russians are up to.

Yet, I am afraid that Robert Mueller will do absolutely nothing in this direction, because he is much too busy right now going after Donald Trump, and after Russian Facebook ads, and after the Twitter accounts of conservatives, and after the imaginary AI internet bots of Russia masquerading as real American patriots.

What a racket…

Mueller – the sponge Bob square pants — is too busy playing children’s video games to go after real actionable human intelligence officers of the GRU and other Russian agencies like the FSB, the successor to the KGB and all her other secret manifestations that are menacing our National Security.

No chance he will go there, because these are real professionals who have bested him at every turn. Of course we have to admit that it is not difficult to best an idiot like Mueller, but it is also laughable to admit that the Special Councel has no time for the real Spy Game, since Robert Mueller wants to go only against soft targets like the former campaign manager of the President whose crime is that in the 1970s, he wore some pricey ostrich jackets, and fancy bellbottom pants, sporting a mullet on his head, as he still does, and that his wife’s dresses are also hideously out of fashion, and all these secrets were hiding in plain sight inside their bedroom closet.

Now, nobody knows the exact moment that the Special Prosecutor Bob Mueller became the Fashion Police, and although this is beyond me, or maybe I simply don’t recall to have even received the memo that says that wearing terribly out of fashion clothes is a real crime that warrants the full force of the FBI and the Department of Justice and all of our Security apparatus in order to be stamped out.

Yet the TIME is NOW.

Yes, the TIME is NOW, and that makes it seem far more important to put this REAL story about a REAL intelligence breach involving a REAL Russian spy –- and the attempt to keep anyone from finding out about it, on the news.

That is, if there is any REAL NEWS left in this country that doesn’t love the FAKE sauce that is more addictive than fentanyl on toast for the fake newshound of CNN, the MSM, and the New York Times… along with their brethren the local syndicated news.
 
Former CIA Director John Brennan, who served under President Obama and is now the darling of the anti-Trump media as a contributor on MSNBC & CNN, can’t stop fuming publicly about what he perceives as punishment for disagreeing with President Trump: losing his top-secret clearance. He says Trump is trying to intimidate him and interfere with his freedom of speech, and he says it, and says it, and says it some more, whenever he wants, with no threat of repercussion, because nobody is interfering with his freedom of speech.

But what he doesn’t say is that no-one has the right to a security clearance. And indeed the ex-CIA directors have traditionally been allowed to keep their security clearance after they leave; it’s renewed every five years as a courtesy and also in case current staff wish to rely on their expertise in a given situation. There’s a condition, however: that former CIA directors “behave like current CIA employees.”

Brennan has failed spectacularly to fulfill that requirement, amongst the many other transgressions he has committed… He’s also shown himself to be so heatedly partisan and deranged and that he simply can’t be trusted on national security issues. And after he went so far as accusing the President of committing treason (a death penalty offense) simply for holding a press conference with Vladimir Putin, it’s hard to imagine a situation in which the current administration would wish to call upon him for anything, except maybe to do the opposite of what he says.

But if for some unfathomable reason they did need him, his security clearance could be reinstated. Peter Strzok’s was reinstated before his recent testimony before congressional oversight committees. I assume it was yanked again right afterwards but don’t know for sure. So, hypothetically, if the next administration were a bunch of “progressive” Democrats who were so “inclusive” they’d want to give a security clearance to a mouthy ex-spook who admitted during a polygraph when he joined the CIA in 1980 that he’d voted for the Communist Party in the ‘70s — how did this man get to be in the CIA at all, let alone end up running it? — they could always (shudder) give it back to him.

The anti-Trump media have gone wild, nonstop, over this. If you were to listen to them, it was “authoritarianism in its purest form.” And that comes from Ben Rhodes on MSNBC, “a brazen act of intimidation,” and “something you might see out of a dictatorship or authoritarian regime.”

The intelligence community has been ridiculously free with security clearances, seemingly handing them out like candy. An estimated 4 million Americans have them, including an unbelievable 1 million with top-secret clearance. I think about half of those people are now contributors on CNN and MSNBC. No wonder there are so many leaks. And is it any wonder we’re uncovering so much inappropriate –- and illegal –- political activity going on in our intelligence community when John Brennan has shown himself to be “Exhibit A”? All of those involved need to lose their clearances.

Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino pointed out on “Tucker Carlson” this past Wednesday that Brennan was the one who on August 25th of 2016, briefed Sen. Harry Reid about elements in the Christopher Steele “dossier” that were then put in an open letter to James Comey at the FBI, providing a pretense for the FBI investigation into then-candidate Trump. He’s bound to have been up to his eyeballs in the attempt to take down Trump, and it’s easy to agree with Bongino that he’s “a disgrace and a stain on the United States whose legacy will only be as a cautionary tale told to future CIA leaders about how not to act.”

Back to my original point, this certainly isn’t the first time a security clearance has been revoked, and Rowan Scarborough writing in the WASHINGTON TIMES has come across an interesting and very timely one. This is the story of Adam Lovinger, a 12-year strategist in the Pentagon’s Office of Net Assessment who complained to his superiors in the fall of 2016 about “sweetheart” contracts given to Stefan Halper, whom we now know was an FBI informant who spied on the Trump campaign. Lovinger blew the whistle on some other contracts, too, given to a close friend of Chelsea Clinton. On May 1, 2017, his security clearance was revoked and he was relegated to clerical duties.

According to Lovinger’s complaint, Halper had been contracted by James Baker, who ran the Office of Net Assessment, to conduct “foreign relations” when that task was supposed to be confined to government officials. Halper had also been awarded contracts totaling hundreds of thousands of dollars from a Pentagon support agency called the Washington Headquarters Service and, according to Lovinger’s attorney, was being paid “astronomically more than others similarly situated.”

As the attorney tells it, the people around the office had no idea what he was doing. The work they knew about seemed to be subcontracted; he was just acting as the middle man.

Halper’s name should ring a bell; he’s the “confidential human source” (SPY) who approached George Papadopoulos and also contacted Carter Page. For daring to speak up about the odd arrangement his bosses had with this man and other sad examples of what he saw as cronyism — Lovinger lost his security clearance.

Yet to me, this is ironic, because he seems like just the sort of person who should have one.

Yet, however we slice it — we now have fresh emails that conclusively show the 2016 links among Steele, Ohr, Simpson, of the FBI with the Russian oligarch Deripaska in the background of the GOTCHA game against President Trump…

Emails in 2016 between former British spy Christopher Steele and Justice Department official Bruce Ohr suggest Steele was deeply concerned about the legal status of a Putin-linked Russian oligarch, and at times seemed to be advocating on the oligarch’s behalf, in the same time period Steele worked on collecting the Russia-related allegations against Donald Trump that came to be known as the Trump dossier. The emails show Steele and Ohr were in frequent contact, that they intermingled talk about Steele’s research and the oligarch’s affairs, and that Glenn Simpson, head of the dirt-digging group Fusion GPS that hired Steele to compile the dossier, was also part of the ongoing conversation.

The emails, given to Congress by the Justice Department, began on Jan. 12, 2016, when Steele sent Ohr a New Year’s greeting. Steele brought up the case of Russian aluminum magnate Oleg Deripaska (referred to in various emails as both OD and OVD), who was at the time seeking a visa to attend an Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation meeting in the United States. Years earlier, the U.S. revoked Deripaska’s visa, reportedly on the basis of suspected involvement with Russian organized crime. Deripaska was close to Paul Manafort, the short-term Trump campaign chairman now on trial for financial crimes, and this year was sanctioned in the wake of Russian involvement in the 2016 presidential election.

“I heard from Adam WALDMAN [a Deripaska lawyer/lobbyist] yesterday that OD is applying for another official US visa ice [sic] APEC business at the end of February,” Steele wrote in the Jan . 12 email. Steele said Deripaska was being “encouraged by the Agency guys who told Adam that the USG [United States Government] stance on [Deripaska] is softening.” Steele concluded: “A positive development it seems.”

Steele also asked Ohr when he might be coming to London, or somewhere in Europe, “as I would be keen to meet up here and talk business.” Ohr replied warmly the same day and said he would likely travel to Europe, but not the UK, at least twice in February.

Steele emailed again on Feb. 8 to alert Ohr that “our old friend OD apparently has been granted another official [emphasis in original] visa to come to the US later this month.” Steele wrote, “As far as I’m concerned, this is good news all round although as before, it would be helpful if you could monitor it and let me know if any complications arise.” Ohr replied that he knew about Deripaska’s visa, and “to the extent I can I will keep an eye on the situation.” Steele again asked to meet anytime Ohr was in the U .K . or Western Europe.

Steele wrote again on Feb. 21 in an email headlined “Re: OVD – Visit To The US.” Steele told Ohr he had talked to Waldman and to Paul Hauser, who was Deripaska’s London lawyer. Steele reported that there there would be a U.S. government meeting on Deripaska that week — “an inter-agency meeting on him this week which I guess you will be attending.” Steele said he was “circulating some recent sensitive Orbis reporting” on Deripaska that suggested Deripaska was not a “tool” of the Kremlin. Steele said he would send the reporting to a name that is redacted in the email, “as he has asked, for legal reasons I understand, for all such reporting be filtered through him to you at DoJ and others.”

Deripaska’s rehabilitation was a good thing, Steele wrote: “We reckon therefore that the forthcoming OVD contact represents a good opportunity for the USG.” Ohr responded by saying, “Thanks Chris! This is extremely interesting. I hope we can follow up in the next few weeks as you suggest.”

Steele was eager to see Ohr face to face. On March 17, Steele wrote a brief note asking if Ohr had any update on plans to visit Europe “in the near term where we could meet up.” Ohr said he did not and asked if Steele would like to set up a call. It is not clear whether a call took place.

There are no emails for more than three months after March 17. Then, on July 1, came the first apparent reference to Donald Trump, then preparing to accept the Republican nomination for president. “I am seeing [redacted] in London next week to discuss ongoing business,” Steele wrote to Ohr, “but there is something separate I wanted to discuss with you informally and separately. It concerns our favourite business tycoon!” Steele said he had planned to come to the U.S. soon, but now it looked like it would not be until August. He needed to talk in the next few days, he said, and suggested getting together by Skype before he left on holiday. Ohr suggested talking on July 7. Steele agreed.

Ohr’s phone log for July 7 notes, “Call with Chris Steele” from 8:00 am to 8:30 am Eastern time.

A caution here: It is possible the “favourite business tycoon” could be Deripaska, or perhaps even someone else, and not Trump. But no one referred to Deripaska in that way anywhere else in the communications. Also, Steele made it clear the “tycoon” subject was separate from other business. And July 1 was just before Steele met with the FBI with the first installment of the Trump dossier. So it appears reasonable, given Steele’s well-known obsession with Trump, and unless information emerges otherwise, to see the “favourite business tycoon” as Trump.

On the morning of Friday, July 29, Steele wrote to say that he would “be in DC at short notice on business” later that day and Saturday. He asked if Ohr and wife Nellie were free for breakfast on Saturday morning. They were, and agreed to meet for breakfast at the Mayflower Hotel in downtown Washington.

Ohr’s log of contacts with Steele lists a meeting with Steele on July 30. Steele finished installments of the dossier on July 19 and 26.

On Aug. 22, Ohr received an email from Simpson with the subject line “Can u ring.” There was no message beyond a phone number. Ohr’s log lists some sort of contact — it’s not specified what — with Simpson on Aug. 22.

Steele finished an installment of the dossier on Aug. 22.

Steele dated three installments of the dossier on Sept. 14. On Sept. 16, Steele wrote Ohr to say that he would be back in Washington soon “on business of mutual interest.” Ohr said he would be out of town Sept. 19-21. On Sept. 21, Steele wrote to say he was in Washington and was “keen to meet up with you.” The two agreed to have breakfast on Sept. 23. Meeting on that date would be “more useful,” Steele said, “after my scheduled meetings” the day before. It’s not clear what those scheduled meetings were. Ohr’s log lists a meeting with Steele on Sept. 23.

On October 18, Steele emailed Ohr at 6:51 am with a pressing matter. “If you are in Washington today, I have something quite urgent I would like to discuss with you, preferably by Skype (even before work if you can).” Steele wrote. Ohr suggested they do it immediately. “Thanks Bruce. 2 mins,” Steele replied. Ohr’s log, lists a call with Steele on Oct. 18.

There is no note on what they discussed. But a few hours later, still on Oct. 18, Steele emailed Ohr again, and the subject was related to Deripaska. “Further to our Skypecon earlier today,” Steele wrote, Hauser had asked Steele to forward to Ohr information about a dispute between the government of Ukraine and RUSAL, Deripaska’s aluminum company. “Naturally, he [Hauser] wants to protect the client’s [Deripaska’s] interests and reputation,” Steele wrote. “I pass it on for what it’s worth.”

After another few hours had passed, Ohr asked if Steele had time for a Skype call. Steele said, let’s do it now. Ohr’s log lists calls with Steele on Oct. 18 and 19.

Steele finished dossier installments on Oct. 18, 19, and 20. The installment on Oct. 18 was the infamous Russians-offer-Carter-Page-millions-of-dollars allegation, and the ones on Oct . 19 and 20 concerned Manafort’s alleged role in an alleged collusion scheme.

On Nov. 21, other players entered the conversation. Ohr received an an email from Kathleen Kavalec, a deputy assistant secretary of state in the Bureau of European Affairs in the State Department. (Kavalec is now President Trump’s nominee to be ambassador to Albania.) Kavalec sent Ohr information on Simon Kukes, a Russian-born executive who contributed more than $250,000 to Trump-supporting organizations after Trump won the Republican nomination. Kavalec said she met Kukes around 2014, when “Tom Firestone brought him in,” a reference to former Justice Department official Thomas Firestone, now a partner at the Washington law firm BakerHostetler. Kavalec also linked to a Mother Jones article about Kukes.

Ohr responded by saying, “I may have heard about him from Tom Firestone as well, but I can’t recall for certain.” Then Kavalec answered by saying she was “just re-looking at my notes from my convo with Chris Steele” and that “I see that Chris said Kukes has some connection to Serge Millian, an emigre who is identified by FT as head of the Russian-American Chamber of Commerce.”

In the book Russian Roulette, authors Michael Isikoff and David Corn wrote that Millian claimed to have some sort of business relationship with the Trump organization — which the Trumps denied. More importantly, Millian went on to become Steele’s source for the infamous “golden showers” allegation that Donald Trump had engaged in a kinky sex scene in a Moscow hotel room in 2013.

Ohr’s phone log indicates that he called Simpson on Dec. 8 to set up a meeting for coffee the next day, Dec. 9.

There is not another email until Dec . 11. Simpson sent Nellie Ohr a link to an article in the left-wing ThinkProgress headlined, “Why has the NRA been cozying up to Russia?” The article focused on now-indicted Russian agent Maria Butina and Russian Alexander Torshin. Nellie Ohr responded, “Thank you!” to which Simpson, the next day, answered, “Please ring if you can.” Nellie Ohr forwarded the Simpson message to Bruce Ohr, saying, “I assume Glenn means you not me.”

Ohr’s phone log on Dec. 13th said, “Glenn Simpson. Some more news. Yesterday 9:27 am Spoke with him.”

Steele dated a dossier installment Dec. 13th.

On Jan. 20, 2017, inauguration day, Bruce Ohr received an email from Simpson that said simply, “Can you call me please?”

The emails raise a clear question of whether Steele was working, directly or indirectly, with Oleg Deripaska at the same time Steele was compiling the dossier — and whether the Justice Department, along with Simpson and Fusion GPS, was part of the project. Given Deripaska’s place in the Russian power structure, what that means in the big picture is unclear.

On Feb. 9 of this year, Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Charles Grassley wrote a letter to Hauser, the London lawyer, and asked, “Is it the case that Mr. Steele, through you, works or has worked on behalf of Mr. Deripaska or businesses associated with him?”

Hauser refused to answer, claiming such information was privileged. But he added: “I can confirm that neither my firm nor I was involved in the commissioning of, preparation of or payment for the so-called ‘Steele Dossier.’ I am not aware of any involvement by Mr. Deripaska in commissioning, preparing or paying for that document.”

On Feb. 14, at an open hearing of the Senate Intelligence Committee, Republican Sen. Tom Cotton asked FBI Director Christopher Wray about Deripaska.

“Is it fair to call him a Putin-linked Russian oligarch?” asked Cotton.

“Well, I’ll leave that characterization to others, and certainly not in this setting,” Wray said.

“Chuck Grassley, the chairman of the Judiciary Committee, last week sent a letter to a London-based lawyer who represents Mr. Deripaska,” Cotton continued, “and asked if Christopher Steele was employed, either directly or indirectly, by Oleg Deripaska at the time he was writing the so-called Steele dossier. Do you know if Christopher Steele worked for Oleg Deripaska?’

“That’s not something I can answer,” Wray said.

“Could we discuss it in a classified setting?”

“There might be more we could say there,” Wray answered.

The newly-released Ohr-Steele-Simpson emails are just one part of the dossier story. But if nothing else, they show that there is still much for the public to learn about the complex and far-reaching effort behind it to subvert our Democracy and destroy our Republic through a Coup D’Etat.

And here are twelve ways that ex-British spy 12 times Christopher Steele fed Trump-Russia allegations to the FBI after the elections of 2016 proving that the Coup D’Etat was a real thing…

Congressional investigators know that Christopher Steele, the former British spy who compiled the Trump dossier on behalf of the Clinton campaign, kept supplying allegations to the FBI after the 2016 election — and even after he was terminated as a “source” by the bureau for giving confidential information to the media.

Because he had broken his agreement with the FBI, bureau procedure did not allow agents to keep using Steele as a source. But they did so anyway — by devising a system in which Steele spoke regularly with Bruce Ohr, a top Obama Justice Department official whose wife worked for Fusion GPS, which hired Steele to search for dirt on Donald Trump in Russia. Ohr then passed on Steele’s information to the FBI.

In a highly unusual arrangement, Ohr, who was the fourth-highest ranking official in the Justice Department, acted as an intermediary for a terminated source for the FBI’s Trump-Russia probe. His task was to deliver to the FBI what Steele told him, which effectively meant the bureau kept Steele as a source.
Agents made a record of each time Ohr gave the bureau information from Steele. Those records are in the form of so-called 302 reports, in which the FBI agents write up notes of interviews during an investigation.

There are a dozen 302 reports on FBI post-election interviews of Ohr. The first was Nov. 22, 2016. After that, the FBI interviewed Ohr on Dec. 5; Dec. 12; Dec. 20; Jan. 23, 2017; Jan. 25; Jan. 27; Feb. 6; Feb. 14; May 8; May 12; and May 15. The dates, previously unreported publicly, were included in a July letter from Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, to the FBI and Justice Department.

Congressional investigators have read the Ohr-Steele 302s. But the FBI has kept them under tight control, insisting they remain classified and limiting access to a few lawmakers and staff. Congress is not allowed to physically possess copies of any of the documents. Now, Grassley says there is “no continuing justification for the FBI to keep the documents secret.” Grassley, who exercises oversight authority over the FBI, is formally challenging the bureau’s decision to keep the Ohr-Steele 302s under wraps. Grassley’s insistence has been met, unsurprisingly, with no cooperation from the FBI.

One small bit of the Ohr 302s has already been made public. The House Intelligence Committee, in its memo focusing on the FBI’s application to the secret FISA court to win a warrant to wiretap onetime Trump foreign policy adviser Carter Page, included a 16-word passage from an Ohr 302 in which Ohr described Christopher Steele’s motivation to stop candidate Trump. (Even though Ohr’s interviews with the FBI took place after the election, he apparently described things Steele told him during their contacts in the months before the election, as well as new information.) Here is the relevant portion of the House memo:
Before and after Steele was terminated as a source, he maintained contact with DOJ via then-Associate Deputy Attorney General Bruce Ohr, a senior DOJ official who worked closely with Deputy Attorneys General Yates and later Rosenstein. Shortly after the election, the FBI began interviewing Ohr, documenting his communications with Steele. For example, in September 2016, Steele admitted to Ohr his feelings against then-candidate Trump when Steele said he “was desperate that Donald Trump not get elected and was passionate about him not being president.” This clear evidence of Steele’s bias was recorded by Ohr at the time and subsequently in official FBI files — but not reflected in any of the Page FISA applications.
After the release of the House memo, Sen. Grassley, along with Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., wrote to the FBI noting the existence of “numerous FD-302s demonstrating that Department of Justice official Bruce Ohr continued to pass along allegations from Mr. Steele to the FBI after the FBI suspended its formal relationship with Mr. Steele for unauthorized contact with the media, and demonstrating that Mr. Ohr otherwise funneled allegations from Fusion GPS and Mr. Steele to the FBI.”

Grassley also noted other documents of interest: In addition to the 302s, written by the FBI agents who interviewed Ohr, Ohr himself also made notes of his talks with Steele. Those notes, which were never classified, have apparently been given to Congress; in his letter, Grassley referred to “63 pages of unclassified emails and notes documenting Mr. Ohr’s interactions with Mr. Steele.”

Grassley’s argument for declassification of the Ohr-Steele 302s is that the existence of the documents is widely known. Also, some of the material in them has been included in congressional documents and reported in the press. And Ohr’s own notes of the meetings, in the possession of Congress, are not classified. So now, there is no reason for the 302s to remain classified and for the FBI to withhold copies from Congress. The ultimate goal, given Grassley’s statement that there is no reason for the FBI to “keep the documents secret,” is for the public to see them.

What would all of that show? It’s likely that the 302s and notes, if released, would show that the FBI was both still trying to get new information out of Steele after the election and that it was also trying to verify the information Steele had already provided in the dossier installments he handed over in preceding months. Remember, the FBI had already presented some of the dossier’s allegations as evidence to the FISA court. After going out on a limb like that, the bureau wanted to know if the allegations were true or not.

In a larger sense, the Ohr-Steele 302s could shed some light on how an effort — it certainly included Steele, but also others — to keep Trump from being elected morphed into an effort to keep Trump from being inaugurated and then morphed into an effort to remove Trump from office.

A version of that effort at a Coup D’Etat against the United States is of course still going on, even as some representatives in Congress, try to find out how it all got started.

Yours,

Dr Churchill

“We must never forget that we are revolutionaries, not stooges conscripted to advance a social order of things that kills everybody. Our Revolution of 1776 has to be renewed in the very life of each and every generation of American patriots shedding blood, toil, & tears for our cause — if we are to keep our Republic.” – Dr Churchill

PSS:

It’s up to us ordinary patriots to pray, protect and support our People’s President and to suffer if needed be in the barricades as we fight the Good Fight against the forces of darkness and evil.

Let’s all pray and stand together patriots because this is the time of grave danger:
