#Durham GET FOCUSED: Agent Strzok memo, known as an "EC" or electronic communication opened FBI Russia probe "Crossfire Hurricane" on July 31, 2016.  NOTE: This "EC" obtained through @JudicialWatch shows Strzok drafted + approved it + Durham is investigating whether “Crossfire
Hurricane” was “properly predicated" which means based on solid evidence + procedures followed.  Former senior FBI agent tells @CBSNews that same person drafting + signing off on an “EC” is unusual + may violate the "DIOG" or Domestic Investigations Operations Guide” which
is the roadmap/rule book for FBI agents. Based on “DIOG,” Crossfire Hurricane appears to fall under "Sensitive Investigative Matter" because it involved a political candidate/organization - DIOG states these cases should be brought to attention “FBI HQ + other DOJ officials"

#Whistleblower Statement from @MarkSZaidEsq attorney for DHS Former Acting Undersecretary for Intelligence Brian Murphy “The selective disclosure of heavily redacted documents by DHS neither contradicts what is contained in Mr. Murphy's whistleblower complaint, nor even supports
the character assassination attempt by the Department. Our role, however, is not to publicly speak for Mr. Murphy regarding official DHS positions but to facilitate his ability to provide complete and truthful information to the relevant oversight authorities. Mr. Murphy has
identified documentation that goes to the heart of this issue, as well as that supporting his whistleblower complaint, and is more than willing to disclose the information to Congress and Inspectors General, and we have asked DHS to facilitate

#Whistleblower NOW Response from Chairman Schiff @HouseIntel to the @DHSgov letter + internal emails first obtained @CBSNews The chairman is now making the DHS letter public, saying “The Department of Homeland Security’s refusal to cooperate fully with the Committee’s legitimate
investigation—despite repeated pledges of cooperation, including by the new acting head of the Department’s Office of Intelligence and Analysis—is unacceptable and only reinforces our concern that the Department and its leadership are trying to conceal additional misconduct,

#911Remembered Responding @CBSNews reporting on 9/11 families still waiting for the five al Qaeda suspects to be tried at Guantanamo Bay: Full statement from the Office of Military Commissions - Convening Authority: “The 9/11 trial date is scheduled for January 2021; however,
with the filing extensions ordered by the Military Judge due to the COVID 19 pandemic, a January start date is unlikely. Currently, filing requests have been extended 180 days past the scheduled January trial date, which indicates that member selection would not begin before the
summer of 2021.” + “Amendments to the scheduling order indicate that COVID-19 circumstances have impacted the Commission schedule. Trial scheduling orders may be matters subject to litigation in the commission.  Because matters subject to litigation are committed to the presiding

#Durham #Flynn Former senior FBI counterintelligence official E. W. “Bill” Priestap is under scrutiny by Senate Judiciary republicans over FBI draft talking points for 2018 Senate intel committee briefing which included credibility of the Steele dossier. judiciary.senate.gov/imo/media/doc/…
WHY IT MATTERS: the 2018 FBI draft talking points say the primary sub-source “did not cite significant concerns with the way his reporting was characterized in the dossier to the extent he could identify it.” But a year earlier, January 2017, the same dossier sub-source told FBI
investigators he did not recall or did not know where some reporting came from, described other info as “rumor + speculation” CONTEXT: Priestap’s handwritten notes from January 2017 were recently made public (note initials “EP”) + central to FBI handling of @GenFlynn case which..
