Panic! Worry! Schiff says he doesn't know where the Counterintelligence investigation is. A Thread.
Adam Schiff said to the Post the other day that he did not have clarity as to whether the counterintelligence investigation had been closed, causing a good bit of Twitter panic.
Even more interestingly, he said that the Gang of Eight was not being briefed on CI since Comey was fired. BREAKING: THERE IS A DIRECT TIE BETWEEN COMEY'S FIRING AND THE COUNTERINTELLIGENCE INVESTIGATION.
For those that are nervous, though, you can relax. Per Mueller's report, he was never directly supervising the CI investigation, that was ALWAYS handled at the FBI - and Trump famously admitted that that is why he fired Comey.
Mueller had 40 FBI agents and analysts assigned to him -- they were all working under Mueller's supervision on Mueller's cases.
Originally, the FBI agents were reporting back to the FBI by procedures they established for CI and foreign information, and SC Mueller's Office met regularly with the FBI's CI Division.
At some point - probably early in 2018 - it was decided that was not enough, and the FBI CI Division embedded it's own personnel whose job it was to make WRITTEN reports of foreign intelligence and counterintelligence back to the FBI.
THAT'S WHY TRUMP HAS BEEN HATING ON WRAY. There was SO MUCH foreign intelligence and counterintelligence info coming out of SC Meuller's investigation, that FBI Counterintel personnel had to be assigned full time into the SC's office and make written reports of it all.
A lot of the foreign and counterintell stuff ISN'T IN MUELLER'S REPORT. It's only there if it was relevant to a charging decision or part of the "main factual results."
It should not be a surprise that the FBI stopped briefing the Gang of Eight. The last time they did, Richard Burr turned around and briefed the White House. Then a couple weeks later, Comey was fired.
BOTTOM LINE: The FBI had the Counterintelligence Investigation throughout. They embedded personnel into Mueller's office to review and share Mueller's facts - AND THERE WERE A TON. All that is being blacked out, even to the Gang of Eight BECAUSE IT'S ONGOING.
