Edward Snowden exposed the worst 4th Amendment violations in US history: the unlawful collection of data on millions of Americans.

His fight was on behalf of the American people.

For that @Snowden deserves a pardon from @realDonaldTrump Image
Recall what Snowden helped expose:

1) The illegal collection of metadata of millions of Americans

2) NSA plans to "Collect it All" and "Exploit it All"

3) Economic espionage and the abuse of private data ImageImageImage
Forget the clichés and talking points of pundits and gov't officials.

Instead, read the source documents hosted by @ggreenwald

They show the scope of domestic surveillance abuses and global US operations.

Prosecuting Snowden isn't about "justice" - if that was the case they'd have locked up the US officials who authorized and abused these programs.

This is about retaliation.

This is about an entitled Establishment who thinks they own your information.

Let Snowden come home.

This is something -

That data Michael Sussmann passed to the CIA in 2017?

The CIA concluded it was not "technically plausible" and was "user created and not machine/tool generated"

[Thread on latest Durham filing] Image
Durham has granted immunity to "Researcher-2" - identified as David Dagon.

Dagon raised concerns to Sussmann that the Trump data "was being unlawfully collected and used"

As we predicted here:
technofog.substack.com/p/john-durham-… ImageImage
There's more. It's big.

Trial immunity is granted to Christopher Steele.

The issue: Whether Sussmann was "was acting on behalf of the Clinton Campaign when he assembled and conveyed the Russian Bank-1 allegations"

Whew. ImageImage

Look closer at Durham's indictment of Michael Sussmann -

There lurks potential charges against the Alfa Bank research group for using classified gov't data for their own political operation.
Durham sets the background by discussing a gov't contract where the researchers would receive classified data -

"in order to identify the perpetrators of malicious cyber-attacks and protect U.S. national security." Image
Durham continues -

the researchers "exploited" this data - which was provided to enable them to "protect U.S. networks" - to conduct their own political research. Image

We are live for the Kevin Clinesmith sentencing hearing.

Clinesmith is charged with altering an email - falsifying a document - in an effort to get the 4th Carter Page FISA warrant.

Judge Boasberg has entered the hearing.

Follow this thread for updates. Image
Judge starts by hearing from Carter Page:

The national media accused me of being "an agent of a foreign power"

I've been harassed in person.

"I know what it's like for your life to be destroyed"
Carter Page:

I first collaborated with the CIA while in the military. I never betrayed that trust.

My life "spun out of control" due to the false allegations.

I had "no privacy" - everything was monitored by the gov't

They physically searched my belongings and hotel room.

The DOJ has filed its Kevin Clinesmith sentencing memo

They want incarceration.

DOJ: Clinesmith wasn't just altering e-mails - he was lying about Carter Page in DMs to the FBI agent.

Thread. ImageImageImage
Why the Clinesmith lie was material:

"It would raise the issue of whether [Carter Page] had those interactions with the intent to assist the US gov't."

It would go to the "loyalties" of Carter Page.

Clinesmith knew FISC needed to be informed.

@AWeissmann_ disagrees 🤦‍♂️ ImageImageImage
Clinesmith's lies "allowed the FBI to conduct surveillance" on @carterwpage thru a FISA application that "lacked probable cause"

He violated the duty of candor to the FISA court. ImageImage

We have Ghislaine Maxwell's unsealed deposition.

Question: Did you invite minor Virginia Giuffre to Epstein's home?

Maxwell: "She came as a masseuse."

Thread. Image
Ghislaine Maxwell admits that Epstein's masseuse was a minor.

Maxwell: "Virginia Roberts (Giuffre) who you are referring to was a masseuse aged 17."

Was [redacted girl] 13 years old when you met her?

Maxwell: "I have no idea." ImageImage
Maxwell evades the questions -

Question: Did the massage therapists "perform sexual acts for Jeffrey Epstein?"

Maxwell: "I don't know what you mean by sexual acts." Image

DOJ produces new Flynn evidence - 1/25/17 Notes FBI OGC lawyer notes.

Logan Act: "no reasonable prosecutor" would proceed.

Flynn call w/ Kislyak similar to "other transition teams"

"First time to use [Logan Act]"

Thread. Image
TOP FBI lawyer James Baker:

"How do you assess § 1001 (false statements) when you wouldn't prosecute the underlying crime?"

Big concession that this wasn't about the broader Crossfile Hurricane investigation. Image
Assessment of whether Flynn is in a "covert relationship w/ Russia":

"No, probably not based on facts to date and interview."

Will be necessary to compare this to the Flynn NSLs handled by Clinesmith. Possible predication issues. (See pic) ImageImage
