A CIA Operation To Discredit

The CIA Connection.

We have already seen that former CIA Director Brennan was the man behind the curtain ensuring the Steele/Clinton dossier both became news worthy and became available to the fourth estate.  We now find that one of his assets was the agent provocateur who set the whole “Russian collusion” insurance policy in play.

About That FBI ‘Source’

Did the bureau engage in outright spying against the 2016 Trump campaign?

By Kimberly A. Strassel, The Wall Street Journal

The Department of Justice lost its latest battle with Congress Thursday when it allowed House Intelligence Committee members to view classified documents about a top-secret intelligence source that was part of the FBI’s investigation of the Trump campaign. Even without official confirmation of that source’s name, the news so far holds some stunning implications.

Among them is that the Justice Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation outright hid critical information from a congressional investigation. In a Thursday press conference, Speaker Paul Ryan bluntly noted that Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes’s request for details on this secret source was “wholly appropriate,” “completely within the scope” of the committee’s long-running FBI investigation, and “something that probably should have been answered a while ago.” Translation: The department knew full well it should have turned this material over to congressional investigators last year, but instead deliberately concealed it.

House investigators nonetheless sniffed out a name, and Mr. Nunes in recent weeks issued a letter and a subpoena demanding more details. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s response was to double down—accusing the House of “extortion” and delivering a speech in which he claimed that “declining to open the FBI’s files to review” is a constitutional “duty.” Justice asked the White House to back its stonewall. And it even began spinning that daddy of all superspook arguments—that revealing any detail about this particular asset could result in “loss of human lives.”

The problems here are two fold.  First, the CIA was conducting an operation to compromise the campaign of a candidate running for President of the United States.  As if that were not bad enough, they also didn’t manage to conceal their efforts very well.

Then again, assured as they were of a Hillary Clinton Administration to pointedly ignore any revelations of the matter and to reward them for their work against the common enemy, they didn’t work nearly hard enough to conceal what they were doing.  Strassel continues…

I believe I know the name of the informant, but my intelligence sources did not provide it to me and refuse to confirm it. It would therefore be irresponsible to publish it. But what is clear is that we’ve barely scratched the surface of the FBI’s 2016 behavior, and the country will never get the straight story until President Trump moves to declassify everything possible. It’s time to rip off the Band-Aid.

Do read the whole thing.  She, however, is not the only interested party to have connected the dots.

The Insurance Policy, The “EC”, The 2016 FBI Counterintel Operation, and The Mysterious Informant Who Originated Brennan’s EC…

By sundance, the Conservative Tree House

•On July 31st, 2016 the FBI opened a counterintelligence investigation against the Trump campaign. They did not inform congress until March 2017. •At the beginning of August (1st-3rd) 2016 FBI Agent Peter Strzok traveled to London, England for interviews with UK intelligence officials. •On August 15th, 2016 Peter Strzok sends a text message to DOJ Lawyer Lisa Page describing the “insurance policy“, needed in case Hillary Clinton were to lose the election.

Recently there has been a great deal of interest in the origination OF the 2016 FBI counterintelligence operation, and how the FISA court was later used to gain Title-1 surveillance warrant against U.S. person Carter Page; part of that operation.

The current line of inquiry surrounds the originating “EC” or “electronic communication” that was generated by CIA Director John Brennan and passed on to FBI Director James Comey. The EC initiated the FBI Counterintelligence Operation.

While the leaks have helped to cement the identity of the agent provocateur, the dogged collection of sundance and others have penetrated the rather shallow cover used for this operation.  I once again find myself in the uncomfortable position of having to be thankful for the woeful lack of trade craft demonstrated.

Consider me irresponsible.

The needle on my give-a-damn-meter broke off around the time the Page/Strzok textswere published.  The intelligence apparatus is still actively trying to destroy a constitutionally elected president. The IC and their co-dependents within the FBI and DOJ are the ones hiding information to protect themselves.  Sunlight is the best disinfectant.

Some brilliant research was already assembled by various people who have looked deeply into this story {HERE and HERE and HERE and HERE} the trail is transparent and Brennan’s FBI/CIA source appears is quite obvious.   I’m just going to connect their well researched dots.

Remember the Peter Strzok trip to London?  The source of John Brennan’s “EC” is likely FBI and CIA operative Stefan Halper a foreign policy expert and Cambridge professor with connections to the CIA and its British counterpart, MI6.

A great background on Halper is HERE.

There you have it.

Halper’s task was to link and dirty up (make to look illicit) the connections between the Trump campaign and operatives associated with Russia.
