1) Spygate: The True Story of Collusion

New @EpochTimes article Plus infographic.
2) Infographic:

This was a collaborative effort between myself and @JasperFakkert of the @EpochTimes
3) The intent behind this project was to provide an accessible overview of SpyGate

Including the main players, agencies and departments involved
4) The article walks through the major segments:

Strzok & Page
State Dept
Clinton Campaign & DNC
Perkins Coie
Obama Administration
Media Involvement
Foreign Intelligence
Spy Traps
FISA Abuse
Insurance Policy
5) The Infographic provides a detailing of the major players and connections.

It is not intended to capture every detail but it provides for a visual high-level representation of major segments and players.
6) Each segment is individually explored and many links are provided.

We have attempted to provide a fair amount of detail while allowing for accessibility.
7) Brennan was the point man in the operation to stop a potential Trump presidency.

To embark on such a mission without direct presidential authority seems both an imaginative stretch and particularly foolhardy.
8) Brennan took unofficial foreign intelligence compiled by contacts, colleagues, and associates—primarily from the UK, but also from other Five-Eyes members such as Australia.
9) One method used to help establish evidence of collusion was the employment of “spy traps.”

Prominent among these were ones set for Trump campaign advisors George Papadopoulos and Carter Page.
10) The FBI’s involvement appears to have initially come at Brennan’s insistence.

Brennan admitted that his intelligence helped establish the July 31, 2016 FBI Investigation.
11) The FBI would obtain a FISA warrant on Page on October 21, 2016.

The Steele dossier would be the primary evidence

Page, who has steadfastly maintained his innocence, was never charged with any crime.
12) The DOJ, which was fully aware of the actions being taken by James Comey and the FBI, also became an active element acting against members of the Trump Campaign.
13) Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, along with Mary McCord, the Head of the DOJ’s National Security Division, were actively involved in efforts to remove Gen. Michael Flynn.
14) The State Department, with its many contacts, became a conduit for the flow of information.

Transfer of Steele’s first dossier memo was personally facilitated by former Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs Victoria Nuland.
15) The entire Clinton campaign willfully promoted the narrative of Russia-Trump collusion despite the uncomfortable fact they were the ones who had engaged the services of Fusion GPS and Christopher Steele through their law firm Perkins Coie.
16) The Obama administration provided a simultaneous layer of protection and facilitation for the entire effort.

They also gathered and disseminated intelligence on the Trump team.
17) "Get as much information as you can. Get as much intelligence as you can before President Obama leaves the administration."

"If they found out how we knew what we knew"

"That’s why you have the leaking.”
18) Obama issued a last-minute executive order on Jan. 13, 2017, that altered the line of succession within the DOJ.

The action was not done in consultation with the incoming Trump administration.
19) UK and Australian intelligence agencies also played meaningful roles in the 2016 presidential election.

Britain’s GCHQ was involved in collecting information regarding then-candidate Trump and transmitting it to the United States.
20) Former MI6 Head - Sir Richard Dearlove has ties to many of the parties involved.

It was he who advised Steele and his business partner, Burrows, to work with a top British government official to pass along information to the FBI in the fall of 2016.
21) Trump tweeted “key Allies called to ask not to release” the documents.

How would they know what was contained in these documents?

Britain and Australia don’t want their role in events surrounding the 2016 presidential election to be made public.
22) FISA abuse appears to have played a meaningful role.

“Private contractors had access to raw FISA information on FBI storage systems.”
23) The coming report from the Inspector General is specifically focused on FISA Abuse...
24) In some respects, the media has played the most disingenuous of roles.

Areas of investigation that historically would have proven irresistible to reporters of the past have been steadfastly ignored.
25) The Insurance Policy was the actual process of establishing the Trump–Russia collusion narrative.

It encompassed actions undertaken in late 2016 and early 2017, including leaking the Steele dossier and Clapper’s leaks of Comey’s briefing to President Trump.
26) The intent behind these actions was simple.

The legitimization of the investigation into the Trump campaign.

The strategy involved the recusal of Trump officials with the intent that Andrew McCabe would end up running the investigation.
27) Spygate represents the biggest political scandal in our nation’s history.
28) But a larger question remains:

How long has the US been subject to interference from the intelligence community and our political agencies?

Was the 2016 presidential election a one-time aberration, or is his episode symptomatic of a larger pattern extending back decades?
29) The actions taken in the 2016 election represent a unified reaction of the establishment to a threat posed by a true outsider—a reaction that has come to be known as Spygate.
