I'll bet you a donut that's the judge who signed off on the FBI FISA warrant that ended up wiretapping/surveilling @GenFlynn
"Judge Emmet Sullivan was randomly assigned to take over the case after Judge Rudolph Contreras recused himself." 🤔 WELL ->…
I'll have my donut with a few sprinkles please. 😉
4. And why am I so confident that Judge Rudolph Contreras recused himself over the FISA warrant issue? Well, that takes us back to how the warrant was obtained.
5. Which includes our favorite White Hat, NSA Director Mike Rogers.
6. All of this stuff is connected. However, if you really want to keep track of the connections - again, you need to utilize Timelines.
7. June 2016: FISA request. The Obama administration files a request with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) to monitor communications involving Donald Trump and several advisers. The request, uncharacteristically, is denied.…
8. Very few FISA requests are ever denied. Actually, only like 1 out of 100 are denied. So for a FISA request to be denied, there had to be a really compelling reason to require *more than* the traditional amount of FBI/DOJ diligence within the request.
9. Monitoring associates within a presidential campaign would certainly be one of those types of requests which would lend a judge GREAT pause. Any FISA judge would easily understand the potential ramifications.
10. And yes, for those of you following along, June 2016 was when the FBI first got involved in the Steele Dossier. Now we see where FBI Deputy Head of Counterintelligence, FBI Agent Peter Strzok gains additional weighted importance.
11. After the FISA denial in June 2016 (original timeline for FBI getting involved with the counterintelligence investigation per James Comey testimony March 10th, 2017); the FBI remained working on the Russian Election Interference investigation.
12. An investigation, which FBI Director James Comey admitted to congress, they intentionally kept hidden from oversight "due to the sensitivity of the matter":…
13. Fast forward to October 2016. That's when FBI Agent Peter Strzok and the newly discovered DOJ Associate Deputy Attorney General Bruce G Ohr (today's headline) are outed as having conversations with Christopher Steele and Fusion GPS etc.…
14. That October 2016 timeframe is also EXACTLY when The Obama administration submits a new, narrow request to the FISA court, now focused on a computer server in Trump Tower suspected of links to Russian banks.…
15. No evidence is found — but the wiretaps continue, ostensibly for national security reasons. The Obama administration is now monitoring an opposing presidential campaign using the high-tech surveillance powers of the federal intelligence services.
16. Are you seeing how the dots connect?

June 2016 FISA request denied. Simultaneous to FBI agent Strzok inital contact with Christopher Steele. October 2016 FISA request approved. Simultaneous to Strzok and Assoc. Deputy AG Bruce G Ohr in contact with full dossier.
17. Way too coincidental. That timeline shouts at you. The FISA warrant was amost guaranteed to be granted based on the Steele Dossier. Hence, the FBI/DOJ sketchy refusals to comply with oversight recently.
18. Common sense tells us Judge Contreras was most likely the judge who signed off on the FISA warrant that led to the surveillance of Donald Trump’s campaign officials, that included National Security Advisor General Michael Flynn.
18. It would be EXPLOSIVE if it turned out the FISA warrant was gained by deception, misleading/manipulated information, or fraud; and that warrant that led to the wiretapping and surveillance of General Flynn was authorized by Contreras - who would now be judge in Flynn’s case
20. FISA Court Judges…
21. Back to the timeline we go, and NSA head Admiral Mike Rogers. Who, coincidentally, was the one IC official without *confidence* in the "Russian Malicious Cyber Activity – Joint Analysis Report”… The infamous media-pushed "17 intel agency report"
22. It is important to note that NSA Director Mike Rogers would have details on every angle of intelligence. Also worth noting Admiral Mike Rogers remained in the Trump administration.
23. On Tuesday November 8th, 2016 the election was held. Results announced Wednesday November 9th, 2016.
24. On Thursday November 17th, 2016, NSA Director Mike Rogers traveled to New York and met with President-Elect Donald Trump.
25. The next day, Friday November 18th President Trump moved the transition team from Trump Tower to his golf course in New Jersey.
26. AND... On Friday November 18th The WaPo reported on a recommendation from “October” that Mike Rogers be removed from his NSA position:… Apparently, Mike Rogers never told his boss, James Clapper (or anyone else) he was going to see the president-elect
27. The recommendation to fire Mike Rogers (in October) was made by Defense Secretary Ash Carter and ODNI James Clapper "according to several U.S. officials familiar with the matter."…
28. What was happening in October 2016?

That's when the "sketchy" FISA warrant was applied for and granted by the FISA court.

You think, perhaps, NSA director Mike Rogers might have had reservations about the application content... and expressed them with the IC?
29. WaPo: "In a move apparently unprecedented for a military officer, Rogers, without notifying superiors, traveled to New York to meet with Trump on Thursday at Trump Tower.…
30. So NSA Rogers went to Trump Tower. The next day President-elect Trump moved his transition team to New Jersey. Against everything you KNOW NOW, don't you think it's likely Rogers informed on the Wiretapping/Surveillance?
31. If yes. Is it likely President-elect Trump also then knew, at least in rough draft, of the basics behind the same material the FBI/DOJ used to get the FISA warrant (ie. the Steele Dossier)?
32. The Office of the Inspector General is currently working from the inside to investigate the politicization, a more apt term is ‘weaponization‘, of the FBI and DOJ within those organizations. The IG is then identifying specific people and specific behavior.
33. The oversight committees (Judiciary, Intelligence) are working from the outside of the organizations to spotlight the consequences from those people and from that behavior.
34. FBI Agent Peter Strzok’s former boss was Bill Priestap, Asst. Director of Counter Intelligence.
Priestap’s boss was FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.
Directly above McCabe in the chain-of-command was FBI Director James Comey.
35. Associate Deputy Attorney General Bruce G Ohr’s former boss was Sally Yates, Deputy Attorney General.
Sally Yates boss was Loretta Lynch.
36. You can see that both Strzok and Ohr are within the very tight circle of FBI and DOJ officials at the top of the food chain.
37. *The END*

... or is it, really the beginning?

1. Who killed Set Rich?

The CIA and FBI people who needed to retain the Trump-Russia narrative, because they were conducting a massive 2016 illegal spy, surveillance and monitoring operation against candidate Donald Trump.
2. The justification for that brutally illegal activity, all boils down to a need for Russia to interfere in the 2016 election. Without that predicate, all of their illegal activity against Team Trump is naked governmental abuse of power.
3. A scale of illegal conduct that dwarfs Watergate. Image

1. Here's the thing folks. When DeSantis came out of the 5 days in the bunker and immediately went on the national tour 8/13/22 (before the book tour), those schedules are planned long in advance. LOOONG in advance. RdS 2024 was planned much, much earlier than most understand.

OK, Jen Griffin (Fox News) is now pushing the Dagestan story.... Now I know it was an op.

It doesn't make sense that a flight from Tel-Aviv, if it was carrying Russian Jews, would land at that airport. Jews don't live in Dagestan. And how did the radicals know in advance?
”The independent Medizona news website reported that the demonstration was prompted by calls spread on the Telegram messaging app earlier on Sunday to block a plane scheduled to arrive directly from the Israeli city of Tel Aviv.”…
..."Despite portraying itself as a local outlet, the Telegram channel had been exposed by both Russian officials and the Killnet hacker community as a project of Ukrainian intelligence services, set up to stir unrest in Russia."...

1) So, as always suspected, this was from the Mueller team, and approved by DAG Rod Rosenstein?

The purpose of which just affirms the intent of the Mueller installation was always to protect the prior effort, and continue throwing a bag over ongoing illegal activity.
2) While not surprising, it still infuriates me that everyone in congress and DC continues to pretend the originating purpose of Robert Mueller was not to do exactly that. Mueller was the cover-up operation. Image
3) Inside this process they needed to know what was being found out so they could intervene, intercept, control and manipulate any evidence that would expose the wrongdoing of the main characters from DOJ, FBI, IC, WH, and Obama intel apparatus.

1. Quick Thread.

Most people truly do not understand the illusion of choice, the depth of the operation, and how the RNC and DNC work to complement each other on behalf of their identical corporate benefactors. Image
2. The people who plan the outcomes of elections, take great pride in their foresight. The stuff they do is so seemingly disparate, and few people connect the dots leading to a larger understanding of how this process really works.
3. For those who do understand, I mean really understand how U.S. political outcomes are decided by instructions to two private corporations (RNC/DNC), watching it unfold election after election is like being a frustrated insider. Image
