"#VladimirPutin didn’t need the green light that #JoeBiden gave Russian forces during his marathon press conference last Thursday for a “minor incursion” into Ukraine.

The Russian president already knew the U.S. commander in chief couldn’t stop him even if he wanted to.
Sure, Putin has seen the polling and knows foreign entanglements won’t help a Democrat hemorrhaging support from his own party.

The newly released #IGReport noted the material failures of the @FBI—“not only the operational team, but also of the managers and supervisors, including senior officials, in the chain of command”—with regard to the #FISA warrant application on Trump campaign aide @CarterWPage.
#IGHorowitz’s findings were so significant that he recommended the @FBI’s “entire chain of command” outlined in his report to the #DOJ for “consideration of how to assess and address their performance failures.” justice.gov/storage/120919…

Although many media organizations are trying to focus on the IG’s finding that the @FBI was within its rights in opening the initial counterintelligence investigation, it should be noted that this was not the focus of the IG’s investigation.
However, Horowitz did note that he had material concerns about the @FBI’s legal ability to open an investigation into the campaign of a presidential candidate:

The #IGReport highlighted several different areas of misconduct and identified a number of errors.

#RobertMueller will be testifying before the House Judiciary and Intelligence committees on July 17.

Here are some crucial questions that should be asked when he testifies (Thread 👇). | Article by Jeff Carlson @themarketswork theepochtimes.com/33-key-questio…
1) Did #AttorneyGeneral Barr in any way misrepresent your 448-page report?

#Mueller failed to identify the grand jury info in the #MuellerReport. Barr noted that “it immediately meant that you know it was going to be a period of weeks before we could get the report out.”
2) Who actually wrote Volume I and Volume II of the #MuellerReport?

At this point, it isn’t known with certainty if #Mueller had any hand in writing the report directly, or if he simply served in an oversight capacity.

Noted in a May 10 letter by Sen. @LindseyGrahamSC to @SecPompeo & IG #Horowitz: “Ms. Kavalec’s contacts with Steele may have been the most significant and memorialized communications with him by a U.S. government official prior to the issuance of the Carter Page FISA warrant.”

News Analysis 🔎 | Over the past month, there has been an inversion of people’s opinions of #RodRosenstein.

Those who praised him are now claiming he has been running interference for President Trump, while his critics have begun to reassess his actions. theepochtimes.com/as-rosenstein-…
#Rosenstein submitted his resignation letter to the president on April 29, with an effective date of May 11.

Rosenstein had previously discussed his intent to resign from his post when a new #AttorneyGeneral was confirmed, following the resignation of @JeffSessions
…After the appointment of #WilliamBarr as #AttorneyGeneral in February, however, #Rosenstein stayed on to assist #Barr in guiding him through the #MuellerReport.

RT from @UofNH history professor
&@NYTimes best-selling author
@SethAbramson
with minor formatting & edits
& lots of tags.

It's time for some clarifications before the conspiracy theories @potus @realdonaldtrump & #AGBarr are selling via @FoxNews, @EpochTimes, etc. become gospel
1 In June 2016, US intelligence received intel
from allied intelligence agencies
(that is, we received information intended to safeguard US national security from our longtime allies)
indicating that @potus @realdonaldtrump aides
were having suspicious overseas convos w/Russians.
2 When we learned
@CIA director @JohnBrennan
had gotten the intel
reports that came to us had plenty of euphemisms
that is, Western intel agencies were likely doing intercepts,
so had *some* sense of the content
of @realdonaldtrump-Russia convos,
not just knowledge they occurred.

#TrishaAnderson–once No. 2 lawyer at @FBI’s Office of General Counsel–was involved in all significant events of the Trump campaign counterintelligence investigation.

She knew of the investigation before it officially opened, according to her testimony. theepochtimes.com/exclusive-test…
A transcript of #Anderson’s testimony, which was reviewed for this article, reveals that she read all of @FBI’s FD302 forms detailing information that the author of the #SteeleDossier, former British spy #ChristopherSteele, had provided to high ranking #DOJ official #BruceOhr.
Anderson says she personally signed off on the original application for a warrant to spy on former Trump campaign adviser #CarterPage without having read it.

So @Comey saw none of these internal @FBI documents on Christopher Steele? Not even the human source validation report that stated medium confidence in him and minimal corroboration? Oh and the fact that he had exposed his relationship with the agency. @TGowdySC
Here’s what make thats hard to believe. The report was based on information the agency had from 2013 on Christopher Steele so the head of FBI never came across him? Seems like he should know about sources?
According to the report the agency had “medium confidence” in his intel which means its credibly sourced BUT not sufficient quality or corroboration. Does the FISA court always grant warrants based on this level @carterwpage?

1) Here is a story of why we think #WeHaveTheMemo

See Q post below.

#DOJ, one is the investigation of the DNC breach and the #SteeleDossier. The #DNC was breached by #SethRich who sent the data to #Wikileaks. Highest levels made aware. Think big.

@POTUS #ReleaseTheMemo
2) #Google funded Crowdstrike w $100m. Brennan/Clapper used Crowdstrike thru Google to find leaker. #DNC finds out it's #SethRich. Q wrote: (SR 187)(MS 13 (2) 187). Example made of Seth, murdered by 2 #MS13 members, which were themselves killed a few blocks away. #WeHaveTheMemo
3) #DebbieWassermanSchultz shuts down #SethRich investigation. "Failed robbery attempt". Q says: F-I/D-J ASSIST - the #FBI and #DOJ assist in cleaning it up. Q then says "INSURANCE" - referring to Strzok texts.

The #FusionGPSTranscripts highlight a critical #Dossier concern: #ChristopherSteele & his sources being fed disinformation by Moscow. #Russia’s intel services were almost certainly on to Steele’s inquiries. Dossier may just be #Putin spreading lies w/ bits of truth. #DirtyTricks Image
There’s a reason why DNI Clapper, CIA‘s Brennan, etc didn’t give #Dossier any credence: vetting #Russian intel for disinformation / counter-intel is wickedly hard. Yet the vetting that was done showed no evidence of collusion. That seems lost on most. nbcnews.com/meet-the-press…
Still, for those who’ve served in the intel community, we do not understand why #Trump refuses to hammer #Russia for the threat it is, or acknowledge that it meddled in our election. Cooperate with #Moscow? Sure. But be clear about the threat they pose. reuters.com/article/us-usa…

👁‍🗨(1) “When sorrows come, they come not single spies, but in battalions” -Shakespeare
You’ve heard the name a lot lately it’s “MI6” and one of its former spies compiled the #TrumpDossier but perhaps we’ve forgotten our history with them? Hint: WMD’s
(2) In 2003 an American whistleblower from the U.N named Scott Ritter came forward and claimed that MI6 had a campaign to exaggerate the weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. it was called #OperationMassAppeal and it’s intent was to “shake up public opinion”
(3) #OperationMassAppeal depended on using non-actionable intelligence and spoon feeding it to the media. It was a disinformation campaign run by MI6 against Iraq. In 1998 it was leaked to press in Washington and then suddenly vanished.
