If Crowdstrike was an FBI contractor (I think they were), then when Director Rogers shut down contractor access to the NSA database on April 18, 2016, he was shutting down a direct portal for opposition research between the DNC and the NSA database.
When Rogers met with FISC Judge Collyer on October 26th, 2016, to report the FISA(702) database issue, he explained the audit found numerous unauthorized searches of the same "identifiers" over different date ranges.
This means the metadata for specific individuals or entities were being extracted from the NSA database, repeatedly, at different times, throughout the time-frame of the NSA audit (November '15 through May 1st '16).
Unbeknownst to Rogers (compartmentalization), at the time of their meeting, FISC Judge Collyer would be absorbing reporting from Rogers while knowing she just authorized a FISA Title-1 surveillance warrant on the Trump campaign just five days earlier (October 21st, 2016).
Then comes the election less than two weeks later, November 8th, 2016.
Nine days after election, without telling anyone in the Obama administration; without telling his boss ODNI James Clapper; without telling anyone in intelligence community; Director Rogers goes to see President-Elect at Trump Tower. November 17, 2016.

Immediately following the meeting with NSA Director Rogers, President-elect Trump moves the entire transition team out of Trump Tower.

FISC Judge Collyer then writes a report; an outcome of the briefing with NSA Director Rogers shortly before the election; and critically exposes the unauthorized FISA(702) NSA database exploitation (by the FBI) that Rogers shut down.
The most important sentence:

"Many of these non-compliant queries involved use of the same identifiers over different date ranges"...

I would state with considerable confidence, those "identifiers" were phone numbers, unique identifiers and more importantly IP addresses, from Trump Tower.

Again the non compliant audit date range: extracted data from U.S. persons between Nov 1st 2015 and April 30th, 2016.
After the election Rogers would be reporting to the incoming president, that unique identifiers associated with his campaign and transition team were being monitored, harvested and extracted, from the NSA database by unknown FBI interests.
That briefing is what prompted President-elect Trump to move his transition team out of Trump Tower after the conversation.

This early info would also be in the back of POTUS mind for all things related to FBI and CIA Intel leaks going forward...
Which eventually leads to this...
Back to FISA Judge Collyer.

Rogers wouldn't know what Collyer knows about the FBI requesting a surveillance warrant on Carter Page and by extension the Trump campaign.
But Collyer would be putting the briefing about database searches together with her knowledge of the FISA application she authorized.

In her mind, those Trump Tower searches would likely be part of the arc of the FBI investigation.
To FISC Judge Collyer everything seems to be in the lane of legal, albeit stretched on the database (FISA-702) searches, up and until she is informed the underlying evidence for the FISA application was built on FBI fraud and misrepresentations to the court.
After the DOJ inspector general informs, positively affirms, Judge Collyer has been purposely misled into cooperating with, and authorizing, a fraudulent FBI investigation....

Now Collyer is likely rethinking those Trump Tower searches Director Rogers told her about.
If all of this is finally put together by all of the various interests, and all of these officials actually communicate with each-other, well.... things *could* get a lot more interesting.

[I doubt it, because consequences are too big now, but it is possible nonetheless]

ADDENDUM: We don't need Attny Durham to prove this; all we really need is the classified documents to be declassified. The story will tell itself.


Then again, that's likely the reason why Bill Barr will not declassify the documents.
