Evidence Now Indicates FBI Spying on Trump was in fact Politically Motivated

FBI’s story about Christopher Steele is bullshit — false intelligence and media contacts were flagged before FISA Court approval.

So, the first Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) spy warrant which was subsequently issued to target low-level Trump campaign adviser Carter Page. The FISA warrant was dated and issued on or about October 23, 2016. A recent Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request revealed new information which indicates the FBI spying operations on Donald Trump were in fact politically motivated by the Obama administration. Much of my analysis in this piece is derived from that FOIA request.

In this effort, let’s look at how this went down. In order to justify and support the approval of the FISA application, the FBI intentionally held back critical information from the FISA court. Certainly suggesting the spying warrant request was for the most part deliberately crafted and politically motivated — and the FBI knew it. Recent evidence (memos) now reveals details about the high-ranking government official who met with Steele in October 2016. Apparently, that person was State Department official Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Kathleen Kavalec who met with Christopher Steele on October 11, 2016.   

In that meeting, it was determined that some of the Donald Trump ‘dirt’ (unsubstantiated lies) that Steele was simultaneously digging up for both the FBI and for Hillary Clinton’s campaign was inaccurate, but nevertheless, was likely irresponsibly and intentionally leaked to the media for political reasons – to allow the unethical mainstream media to disseminate the false-narrative.

The concerns were flagged in a typed memo and in handwritten notes from that meeting and taken by Kathleen Kavalec, again on Oct. 11, 2016. Her observations were recorded exactly 10-days before the FBI used Steele and his infamous dossier to justify securing the FISA warrant to spy on Trump campaign adviser Page and the campaign’s ‘so-called’ contacts with Russia in search of a now debunked collusion theory.

From her meeting with Steele, Kavalec determined within 45-minutes that Steele’s dossier contained at least one lie, he violated his agreement with the FBI and went to the State Department, and he was leaking to The Washington Post and The New York Times. Steele also claimed he needed to complete it before the election. Steele was investigating on behalf of Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the DNC she controlled.

The following information relates to the memo and notes written by Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs, Kathleen Kavalec, on October 11, following secret meeting with Christopher Steele:

  • Kavalec’s observations were recorded exactly 10 days before the FBI used Steele and his infamous dossier to justify securing a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant to spy on Trump campaign adviser Carter Page and the campaign’s contacts with Russia in search of a now debunked collusion theory.
  • It is important to note that the FBI swore on October 21, 2016, to the FISA judges that Steele’s “reporting has been corroborated and used in criminal proceedings” and the FBI has determined him to be “reliable” and was “unaware of any derogatory information pertaining” to their informant…

Kavale noted that; “These assertions seem clearly to be lies.” Kavalec had no trouble identifying Steele as a fraud and in her typed summary, Kavalec wrote that;

  Steele told her the Russians had constructed a “technical/human operation run out of Moscow targeting the election” that recruited emigres in the United States to “do hacking and recruiting.”

  She quoted Steele as saying; “Payments to those recruited are made out of the Russian Consulate in Miami,” according to a copy of her summary memo obtained under open records litigation by the conservative group Citizens United. Kavalec bluntly debunked that assertion in a bracketed comment: “It is important to note that there is no Russian consulate in Miami.”

Additionally note that Kavalec’s also recorded that Steele was leaking to the press to include; the NY Times and the Washington Post and others, in violation of his non-disclosure agreement with the FBI;

  • “June — reporting started,” she wrote. “NYT and WP have,” she added, in an apparent reference to The New York Times and The Washington Post.
  • Further she quoted Steele as suggesting he was “managing” four priorities — “Client needs, FBI, WashPo/NYT, source protection,” her handwritten notes show.

From her meeting and her observations of Steele, Kavalec also noted that Steele’s motives were ‘clearly political’;

  • Also reported elsewhere in the media last past week was that Kavalec’s memo clearly warned that Steele had admitted his client was “keen” to get his information out before Election Day. In other words, he had a political, rather than an intelligence, deadline.

That is apparently obvious, because his client was Hillary Clinton.  Further, it appears that Kavalec’s memo was sent to the FBI well before the Bureau vouched for Steele’s veracity to the FISA court.

  • Kavalec, two days later and well before the FISA warrant was issued, Kavalec forwarded her typed summary to other government officials. The State Department has redacted the names and agencies of everyone she alerted. It is unlikely that her concerns failed to reach the FBI. Reason being, she kept notes which were recently obtained via the FOIA request. Then-FBI Director Jim Comey and all of Comey’s officials were told of the concerns.

Note that a member of the House Oversight and Reform Committee and ranking member of its Subcommittee on Government Operations, Representative Mark Meadows (R-N.C.), stated on Thursday May 9, 2019 confirmed with U.S. officials that Kavalec’s memo was forwarded to the FBI in the Oct. 13, 2016, email.

In letters last week to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Senators Chuck Grassley (R-IA), Ron Johnson of (R-WI), and Lindsey Graham (R-SC), pressed Pompeo for details about the October 11, 2016 meeting, which was held at Foggy Bottom (State Department Headquarters) between Steele and Kavalec.

One critical concern which should be noted is that the FISA warrant to spy on Carter Page was renewed several times, extending by many months the period during which the FBI and the Department of Justice, and the intelligence community for that matter, knew about Steele’s unreliability and continued to mislead the FISA court. Note, the first FISA warrant application was submitted in likely between 21 and 23 October 2016, after which there were three renewals at three-month intervals, including in January, April, and June 2017. The Justice Department Inspector General has determined the three Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrant extensions against Carter Page were illegally obtained.

Let me briefly bring in and mention the well know and much anticipated DoJ Inspector General investigation. In the investigation that began last year. DoJ IG General Michael Horowitz is examining the DoJ’s and FBI’s compliance with legal requirements, as well as policies and procedures in the applications filed with the U.S. FISA Court pertaining to Page as part of a larger counterintelligence probe into Trump’s campaign. The inspector general inquiry is expected to be completed in either in late May or June. Again, it should be noted the DoJ inspector general found Carter Page FISA extensions were illegally obtained.

Together, the declassification of the FISA documents, the DoJ IG Report and the Attorney General’s ongoing investigation will be death defying for many. There will be indictments and prosecutions.It is because of these forthcoming reports and inquiries that the Democrats on Capitol Hill are working overtime to continue to investigate and discredit President Trump.


CAVEAT: It should be noted that the Carter Page FISAs have been publically released via the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).

Let me make a few observations before I close.

First, quite a large amount of information has been redacted in the FISA applications, but they still represent an extraordinary and staggering disclosure to the public. Remember, these documents, the FISA applications are considered to be very sensitive—and with their disclosure, even heavily redacted, may have long-term, programmatic consequences long after in years following the final outcome of this scandal. The government seems to have accepted that FOIA applies to FISA. As a career senior intelligence officer, and having had experience with FISA applications and warrants, without taking a position on the issue I can vouch for the concern that argues to the contrary, to allow FISA documents to be subject of FOIA requests.

Second, for those who don’t remember, the controversy about these FISA applications first arose in February when House intelligence committee Chairman Representative Devin Nunes (R-CA) released a memo claiming that the FBI misled the FISA Court about Christopher Steele, and the FISA applications on Page. The main complaint in the Nunes memo was that FBI whitewashed Steele—that the FISA applications did not “disclose or reference the role of the Democrat National Committee (DNC), Clinton campaign, or any party/campaign in funding Steele’s efforts, even though the political origins of the Steele dossier were then known to senior and FBI officials.”

There remains a few, still outstanding questions, the FBI’s spying operation on the Trump campaign was ordered at the highest levels of the Bureau. Who signed the FISA application? Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, for one–the same Andrew McCabe in whose office high-ranking agents like Peter Strzok discussed the imperative that Donald Trump not win the presidency. The President’s full declassification of the FISA warrant applications and the warrants themselves, as will  IG Horowitz’s forthcoming report along with Attorney General Barr’s now ongoing DoJ investigations. There were many involved across many department and agencies; FBI, DoJ, CIA, DoD, State Dept., NSA, the NSC — and up through the White House – people knew and acted, albeit illegally and criminally.

As I have been saying for nearly two-years now, there is a real likelihood that senior FBI, DoJ, and key intelligence and national security heads are going to roll. Even in todays immoral and debauched, legal world, fraud and perjury in a FISA application is a serious matter.

After the release of the report written by special counsel Robert S. Mueller, Democrats had two options: They could either attempt to inflate the narrative of obstruction of justice that the special counsel hinted at but did not act upon. They failed to understand that there was no resuscitating the “collusion” narrative, which is dead and buried, or they could attack the messenger who transmitted the report that so deeply disappointed them: Attorney General William P. Barr. They chose the latter course of action, and blundered terribly in doing so.

In attacking AG Barr, the Democrats hurt themselves. Not only did they appear desperate after their “bet everything on Mueller wager went bust. In doing so, they proceeded to cement the alliance between President Trump and even establishment Republicans in a way that had not occurred before. The acknowledgement and evidence that factually points to the dossier and Russian Collusion narrative was “politically driven” satisfies yet up until now another unknown. And while the Democrats’ continue to ratchet-up their ridiculous attacks on AG Barr, this attorney has vowed to get to the bottom of what many think is the worst political scandal in American history.

THE LETTERS

In letters this week to Sec. of State Mike Pompeo, GOP  Sens. Chuck Grassley of Iowa, Ron Johnson of Wisconsin and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina pressed Pompeo for details about the Oct. 11, 2016 meeting, which was held at Foggy Bottom between Steele and Kathleen Kavalec, the deputy assistant secretary of state for European and Eurasian affairs.

They say the spy warrants were obtained with dubious claims.

IT WAS TO UNDERMINE THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN

In a letter sent to Pompeo on Thursday, Grassley and Johnson, who chair the Senate Banking and Senate Homeland Security Committees, respectively, said Steele’s contacts with the media contradict what the FBI claimed the Carter Page warrants.

“If true, that would contradict the Carter Page FISA application where the FBI repeatedly represented to the court that Steele did not have unauthorized contacts with the press prior to October 2016,” they wrote.

“Based on the publicly-released version of the typed notes of the meeting, it appears Steele’s intent of the meeting with the State Department was to maximize the impact of the unverified information that he had acquired in an effort to undermine the Trump campaign,” they added.

This is OUTRAGEOUS!

Don’t forget that Steele was working for HILLARY!
