GCHQ alerted US agencies after becoming aware of TeamTrump’s contacts w/ RUs in 2015

NSA:”By mid-July 2016, ‘We knew we had a RU agent on our hands,’”

Comey in NZ in March 2016, & Queensland in April 2017 to meet with AU intel Chiefs & FVEYs respectively. #PineGap

“The FBI had a highly important intel source in or near the Trump campaign. The FBI had a mole.

Protecting that source was deemed more important in the summer of 2016 than stopping the Trump campaign, which the FBI knew or at least strongly suspected was in bed with Putin”

“But what if the mole wasn’t a person?

The FBI has long protected super-secret technical intelligence programs, above all signals intelligence, by masquerading their information as coming from (non-existent) human sources.”

Australians were told by Defence Minister Fairhall in 1967 that #PineGap would be a space research base, and that it would not do, “anything of military significance.”
In fact, #PineGap was established 30 kilometres outside of Alice Springs by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) as a surveillance facility to collect intelligence about military capabilities and weapons systems, particularly missiles, of the Soviet Union and other nations
While its listening capacity is applied to verification & compliance with arms control treaty obligations, #PineGap also plays a role in US nuclear war planning through its capacity to locate and jam Soviet & other air defence radars to ensure US nuclear weapons hit their targets
