From an interesting discussion on another site. Will post highlights
1/1
Bill Priestap

FBI Director of Counterintelligence
supervisor of FBI Counterintelligence Deputy Peter Strzok

investigation into Donald Trump began i July 2016 and overseen by BP
Peter Strzok was specifically in charge of the Trump counter intel, reporting every detail to BP
On March 20th 2017 congressional testimony, James Comey was asked why the FBI Director did not inform congressional oversight about the counterintelligence operation that began in July 2016.

Director Comey said he did not tell congressional oversight he was investigating presidential candidate Donald Trump because the Director of Counterintelligence suggested he not do so. *Very important detail.*
Oversight protocol requires the FBI Director to tell the congressional intelligence "Gang of Eight" of any counterintelligence operations. The Go8 has oversight into these ops at the highest level of classification. (see pic)
FBI wanted to keep it hidden that they were running a counterintelligence operation against a presidential candidate, i.e., the "insurance policy".
FBI Agent Strzok to FBI Attorney Page: "I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy’s office that there’s no way he gets elected – but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk. It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40.”
die before you’re 40.”

"Insurance Policy" text link

So James Comey told congress that the reason he didn't inform the statutory oversight "Gang of Eight" was because BP recommended he didn't do it.
"fall guy". FBI Director James Comey is ducking responsibility in March 2017 by blaming FBI Director of Counterintelligence Bill Priestap for not informing congress of the operation that began in July 2016. (9 months prior)
Bill Preistep (BP) would have needed to authorize Peter Strzok to engage with Christopher Steele over the "Russian Dosssier".
BP would have needed to approve of the underlying documents that were used for both FISA applications (June/July and Sept/Oct).
BP would be the person to approve of paying, or reimbursing, Christopher Steele for the Russian Dossier used in their counterintelligence operation and subsequent FISA application.
Without BP involved, approvals, etc. the entire Russian/Trump Counterintelligence operation doesn't happen. Comey's testimony is also evidence of Priestap's importance.
In addition, when Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates testified (w/ James Clapper), she too spoke of the important of BP as her liaison and contact within the FBI on the counterintelligence operation.
SY never mentioned Peter Strzok - not once.

Even though it was FBI agent Peter Strzok who interviewed Michael Flynn on January 24th, SY never mentioned him. EVER.
(see saraacarter.com/2017/12/04/fbi…)

However Deputy AG SY did talk about BP during her testimony.
SY said she and BP traveled together, Jan 26th, to the White House to inform Don McGhan (WH Counsel) of Michael Flynn "misleading statements" (based on Pence media reports and Flynn prior ambush interview Jan 24th).
According to SY testimony, she and BP reportedly presented all the information to McGahn so the White House could take action that they deemed appropriate.

BP is a central figure.
Comey defers to him;
SY relied on him;
Strzok reports to him; etc.
Yet there's no mention of BP in any of the explosive investigative story-lines in the past two weeks. Why?
BP is FBI Director of Counterintelligence. There's no way he hasn't been caught inside the investigative net.
Priestap's boss, Andrew McCabe has been caught.
His subordinate, Peter Strzok, has most certainly been caught.
FBI Director Comey pushed him in front of the bus.
Either Priestap is going to be the attempted fall-guy for the entire scheme.

-OR-

Bill Priestap saw the bus coming and is assisting the scheme investigators
hmmmm
FBI Director of Counterintelligence Bill Priestap is married to Sabina Menshell a self-employed “consultant” with a history of donations to Democrat candidates, specifically to Hillary Clinton.
I Do not take credit for any of this.
Great research being done by some anons.
Just thought I would relay it
Long thread, but worth a look
