Key FBI officials failed to review an intelligence file identifying Christopher Steele’s ties to Russian oligarchs and were later advised some of the information he provided agents in his dossier appeared to be misinformation planted by Russian intelligence, according to declassified information made public Friday.

 

The explosive revelations were contained in footnotes that had been originally redacted from Justice Department inspector general Michael Horowitz’s December report on FBI failures in the Russia case. The information was provided to two Senate committees in recent days.

 

One of the newly declassified footnotes highlights a glaring misstep early in the Russia case, when key officials failed to review the intelligence control file for Steele, a former MI6 agent who approached the FBI with unverified allegations about Trump after he was hired to do opposition research by the firm working for Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party.

 

Checking such files is a basic procedure in a counterintelligence probe when an informant is involved, officials told Just the News.

 

The footnote states that an FBI intelligence analyst and a supervisory special agent working on the Crossfire Hurricane probe admitted they “did not recall reviewing information in Steele’s Delta file documenting Steele’s frequent contacts with representatives for multiple Russian oligarchs in 2015.”

 

“In addition to the information in Steele’s Delta file documenting Steele’s frequent contacts with representatives for multiple Russian oligarch, we identified reporting the Crossfire Hurricane team received [redacted] indicating the potential for Russia disinformation influencing Steele’s election reporting,” a second footnote revealed.

 

Specifically, that footnote added: “A [redacted] 2017 report relayed information from [redacted] outlining an inaccuracy in a limited subset of Steele’s reporting about the activities of (former Trump lawyer) Michael Cohen. The [redacted] stated that it did not have high confidence in this subset of Steele’s reporting and assessed that the referenced subset was part of a Russian disinformation campaign to denigrate U.S. foreign relations.”

That same footnote reveals a separate report to the FBI, dated 2017, “contained information … that the public reporting about the details of Trump’s [REDACTED] activities in Moscow during a trip in 2013 were false, and that they were the product of RIS ‘infiltra[ing] a source into the network’ of a [REDACTED] who compiled a dossier of information on Trump’s activities.” RIS is an acronym for Russian intelligence services.

 

The new information provides the most explosive information to date that FBI officials had serious reason to doubt Steele’s dossier when it first arrived and during the time it was used to support FISA surveillance warrants targeting the Trump campaign in late 2016 and 2017.

 

Sens. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., and Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, who worked to get the footnotes declassified, said Friday the information withheld from the American public for two years confirms the FBI collusion probe that dogged the Trump administration was flawed from start to finish and covered up by a false narrative driven by news media leaks.

 

“For years, the public was fed a healthy diet of leaks, innuendo and false information to imply that President Trump and his campaign were part of a Russian conspiracy to spread disinformation,” the senators said. “The FBI’s blind pursuit of the investigation, despite exculpatory and contradictory information, only legitimized the narrative.

 

“The mounting evidence undercutting this narrative should have stopped the investigation early in its tracks. Instead, it took several years and millions in taxpayer dollars to conclude that the allegations were baseless.”

Russia case footnotes to be declassified, exposing FBI concerns about Steele disinformation


Declassified case notes referring to Christopher Steele deception and FBI knowledge of that deception demonstrates just how infested and invested the FBI is as a Deep State agent to take down a sitting President. NO ONE past or present in the FBI to date has been accountable! WHY THE HELL NOT?!

Russia case footnotes to be declassified, exposing FBI concerns about Steele disinformation

Previously redacted footnotes from Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s report expected to raise questions about prior FBI assessment of key informant.

U.S. intelligence has decided to declassify several redacted footnotes from a recent Justice Department report that will expose more problems with the FBI’s investigation into President Trump’s campaign, including that agents possessed evidence their main informant may have been the victim of Russian disinformation, Just the News has learned.

 

The previously redacted footnotes are likely to raise new concerns that the FBI ignored flashing red warning signals about the informant Christopher Steele and gave a false picture in briefing materials supplied to Congress.

 

The declassified sections from Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s December review of FBI FISA abuse could be made available to key Senate and House committees as early as the end of this week, according to people familiar with the effort.

 

John Solomon Reports Podcast

The unredacted footnotes are expected to provide new data points in the timeline showing when the FBI learned, or should have suspected, that its key evidence suggesting Trump was colluding with Russia was erroneous and how high up those concerns were known, the sources said.

 

The new information “will make clear the FBI possessed information at multiple levels that undercut the evidence it was using to sustain a collusion investigation” and will be specific enough to renew a debate in Washington over “whether the FBI intentionally ignored red flags or simply was blinded by ambition from seeing them clearly,” one source with direct knowledge said.

 

The evidence could also raise new questions about whether statements made to Congress during the Russia probe were false or misleading, and whether the intelligence community’s official assessment that Vladimir Putin was solely trying to help elect Trump was contradicted by some evidence in FBI files, the sources said.

 

The declassification was prompted in part by a letter sent in January by Senate Finance Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, and Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee Chairman Ron Johnson, R-Wis., that requested four footnotes from the Horowitz report be declassified.

 

Grassley and Johnson are two strong allies of Trump who played a key role in debunking the false collusion allegations the FBI investigated. Johnson’s investigators flagged the redacted passages during a review of the Horowitz report and worked with Grassley’s team to escalate to Attorney General William Barr.

 

“We are concerned that certain sections of the public version of the report are misleading because they are contradicted by relevant and probative classified information redacted in four footnotes,” Grassley and Johnson wrote Barr. “This classified information is significant not only because it contradicts key statements in a section of the report, but also because it provides insight essential for an accurate evaluation of the entire investigation.”

 

The two followed up with a letter earlier this month to the Acting Director of National Intelligence (DNI) Ric Grenell saying the release of the classified information would provide “insight essential for an accurate evaluation of the entire investigation.”

 

Sources said DNI and Justice Department are planning to declassify those four footnotes as well as others in the report that will provide new understanding about failures in the FBI’s now-debunked Russia collusion probe.

 

One of the key revelations will be the unmasking of footnotes that show specific red flags raised inside the bureau’s intelligence files that Christopher Steele, the former MI6 agent whose anti-Trump dossier played a key role in the collusion probe, could have been the victim of Russian disinformation through his contacts with Russian oligarchs, the sources said.

 

Horowitz’s report in December concluded that most of the allegations Steele included in the dossier he gave the FBI were inaccurate, uncorroborated, or internet rumor and that the FBI falsely represented to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court that Steele’s intelligence had been verified in securing a FISA warrant to target the Trump campaign and former adviser Carter Page in fall 2016 in an investigation code-named Crossfire Hurricane.

 

Horowitz’s report also raised concerns the FBI failed to fully evaluate evidence in its intelligence files that suggested Russian disinformation was flowing to Steele, who was working during the 2016 campaign for the opposition research firm trying to help Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party defeat Trump.

 

Those concerns were echoed in the report by former FBI counterintelligence chief Bill Priestap and former Justice Department lawyer Stuart Evans.

 

“In view of information we found in FBI files we reviewed, and that was available to the Crossfire Hurricane team during the relevant time period, we believe that more should have been done to examine Steele’s contacts with intermediaries of Russian oligarchs in order to assess those contacts as potential sources of disinformation that could have influenced Steele’s reporting or, at a minimum, influenced Steele’s understanding of events in Russia that furnished context for the analytical judgments he used to evaluate the reporting,” Horowitz wrote at the time. “We agree with the assessment of Priestap and Evans that this issue warranted more scrutiny than it was afforded.”

 

While Horowitz raised the issue broadly, a detailed set of footnotes laying out what actually was in the FBI files was completely redacted. That footnote is expected, along with other information, to be declassified.

 

Persons familiar with the effort said the new declassifications also may raise questions about representations FBI witnesses made in classified briefings and briefing documents to Congress in 2017.

 

Horowitz’s report flagged one such possible episode, recounting a memo that the FBI provided in December 2017 to congressional leaders that claimed to have dismissed the notion that Steele was the victim of disinformation.

 

“According to an FBI memorandum prepared in December 2017 for a Congressional briefing, by the time the Crossfire Hurricane investigation was transferred to the Special Counsel in May 2017, the FBI did not assess it likely that the [Steele] [ election reporting] was generated in connection to a Russian disinformation campaign,” Horowitz noted.

 

Such a claim may have dismissed or overlooked evidence sitting in the FBI’s own files, the report suggested.

 

When pressed by the IG about the possibility that Steele had been the victim of Russian disinformation, Priestap, the former counterintelligence chief whose supervised the lead case agent Peter Strzok, offered an uncertain answer.

 

“I’m struggling, with, when you know the Russians, and this I know from my Intelligence Community work: they favored Trump, they’re trying to denigrate Clinton, and they wanted to sow chaos. I don’t know why you’d run a disinformation campaign to denigrate Trump on the side,” Priestap answered.

 

Steele broadly defended his work in an interview with the IG. And after Horowitz’s report was issued, the former British spy issued a statement through his lawyers and his company Orbis Business Intelligence disputing many of the IG’s findings, including the allegation that Steele’s primary sub-source had disowned or denied much of the information attributed to him in the dossier.

 

“Public discussions about a source are always fraught with danger for the source and the source’s sub-source,” the statement said. “Had Orbis been given an opportunity to respond in a private session, the statement by the primary sub-source would be put in a very different light.”

 

Horowitz isn’t the only government official to raise concerns that Steele may have been victimized by Russian disinformation. One of the Democrats’ star witnesses during President Trump’s impeachment investigation, government Russia expert Fiona Hill, testified about Steele that she had “misgivings and concern that he could have been played” by Russian disinformation. Hill had previously worked with Steele when he was with MI6.

 

“Their goal was to discredit the presidency,” she testified in an October deposition. “Whoever was elected president, they wanted to weaken them. So, if Secretary Clinton had won, there would have been a cloud over her at this time if she was President Clinton. There’s been a cloud over President Trump since the beginning of his presidency, and I think that’s exactly what the Russians intended.”

 

The new evidence from the declassified footnotes will give the American public a first chance to evaluate whether the FBI dropped the ball on evaluating Russian disinformation in the Steele dossier.

 

Whatever the final verdict, the upcoming declassifications are a pointed reminder that the public still has much to learn about what did, and did not, go right in the Russia collusion probe.

MARK MEADOWS DROPS MULTIPLE BOMBSHELLS IN HEARING ABOUT CLINTON, RUSSIA PROBES


Examination of the FBI and DOJ is far from over. Rep. Mark Meadows reveals the FBI 302s from the Crooked Hillary interview were altered in her favor.

MARK MEADOWS DROPS MULTIPLE BOMBSHELLS IN HEARING ABOUT CLINTON, RUSSIA PROBES

 

By Chuck Ross | Reporter

Daily Caller

 

Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC)

 

North Carolina Rep. Mark Meadows made two startling claims in a House hearing on Tuesday, asserting that there is “growing evidence” that FBI officials altered documentation of witness interviews in the Hillary Clinton and Russia probes.

 

The Republican also revealed the name of an FBI attorney he believes is the bureau employee who was removed from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation in February after he was found to have sent anti-Trump text messages.

 

Meadows made the revelations in a round of questioning with Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz.

 

On Thursday, Horowitz’s office released a scathing report that documented FBI officials’ mishandling of the Clinton investigation. It also laid out a slew of text messages that FBI officials and attorneys sent criticizing Donald Trump.

 

“I think the other thing that I would ask you to look into, there is growing evidence that 302s were edited and changed,” Meadows said. “Those 302s, it is suggested that they were changed to either prosecute or not prosecute individuals. And that is very troubling.”

 

Meadows was referring to forms that FBI agents use to summarize witness interviews. He told reporters after Tuesday’s hearing that he has seen evidence that 302s filled out during the Clinton and Russia investigations have been changed. He also said he has “more information” about the alleged alterations. (RELATED: ‘Viva Le Resistance’: Mueller Team Attorney Sent Anti-Trump Texts)

 

Horowitz appeared to acknowledge that he is aware of allegations about edited 302s.

 

“If I could just mention, we have been getting those kind of referrals and as often happens when we issue reports like this we get other information coming to us, and we are intending to follow up on that,” Horowitz said.

 

Meadows was not finished dropping bombshells.

 

He also threw out the name of the person he believes is identified as “FBI Attorney 2” in the IG report released on Thursday. The report cited text messages that the lawyer sent shortly before and after the 2016 election criticizing Trump.

 

“I am numb,” the attorney wrote on Election Day.

 

“Viva le resistance,” he wrote to another FBI attorney on Nov. 22, 2016.

 

The lawyer worked on both the Clinton and Russia investigations. On the latter, he served as the FBI’s top attorney on the Russia probe as of 2017 and worked on Mueller’s team until February. He was removed from that investigation after the discovery of his anti-Trump texts.

 

Horowitz said early on in Tuesday’s hearing that the lawyer was not identified in the IG report at the request of the FBI. The bureau claimed that the individual’s identity was sensitive because he worked on counterintelligence matters. (RELATED: FBI Is Refusing To Name Anti-Trump Attorney)

 

“Is the other one Kevin Clinesmith?” Meadows asked in an attempt to get Horowitz to identify FBI Attorney 2.

 

Horowitz did not take the bait.

 

Meadows also asked Horowitz whether an FBI lawyer named Sally Moyer was also referenced in the IG report.

 

“They don’t work in counterintelligence. If that’s the reason the FBI is giving, they’re giving you false information because they work for the general counsel,” Meadows said.

 

Mueller’s office and the FBI have refused to identify FBI Attorney 2.

Americans Need Plain Sight


Justin Smith tackles the glaring absence of substantiated bias against President Trump and FOR Crooked Hillary in Michael Horowitz’s Inspector General Report on FBI/DOJ investigations.

Americans Need Plain Sight

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent 6/16/2018 8:37 PM

 

The FBI brass must have needed hazmat suits to scrub DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s report on agency misconduct in the 2016 elections, since the evidence of treason at the highest level of government was abundant. The truth is being hidden, and the result is a fiction representative of something out of Orwell’s ‘1984’; and so, we must do everything within our power to force the issue in opposition to status quo voices in government and the media, who are not representing the U.S. Constitution and objectives based on our founding virtues, We must hold these criminals, these traitors, in the FBI, the DOJ and elsewhere within the government,  accountable for illegally working to prevent Donald Trump from winning the election and afterwards trying to unseat him from power.

 

The five-hundred page IG Report was released on June 12th 2018, and it  barely scrapes the surface of previous known acts of sedition and espionage, if not treason. It doesn’t really address anything that the American people were not already aware had occurred. I made note of the Peter Strzok and Lisa Page texts in January 2018, just as the IG Report recently did.

 

Page texted Strzok in August 2016 and asked, “(Trump’s) not ever going to become president, right? Right?”  “No. No he won’t,” Strzok responded. Why are these two FBI agents still working for the FBI? This is treason at the FBI and heads must roll.

 

And yet, in regards to investigative decisions by FBI Deputy Director Assistant Peter Strzok, the lead investigator on the Clinton email case and the Russia investigation, and Lisa Page, Special Counsel to the Deputy Director, Inspector General Michael Horowitz incredibly offers us that there was “no evidence that the conclusions by the prosecutors were affected by bias or other improper considerations”.

 

Among several other important items, the report also gives Hillary Clinton a pass on the mishandling of Top Secret information, even though it’s unfathomable that any career government official would not realize that an insecure system was not any place for those conversations. Seven email chains that were classified at the Top Secret/ Special Access Program level went through Clinton’s private server in an unsecured manner, and it is now known, that the Russians did, in fact, access them, as reported by Fox News.

 

This was willful and criminal misconduct by Hillary Clinton, because the gap between unclassified and Top Secret was so wide and obvious. She had to know her actions were criminal and illegal, and there was a purpose and a deception at work here, namely to cover up the illegal actions she and Obama took in Libya and across the Middle East [Blog Editor: Possible reference HERE & HERE].

 

Horowitz’s report split hairs with the definition of “gross negligence” — concluding that the term encompassed conduct “so gross as to almost suggest deliberate intention” or something that falls just short of being willful.”

 

Horowitz found that Hillary Clinton did not intend to violate the law, much in the disingenuous fashion that former FBI Director James Comey did. Any person capable of reading the law and cogent thought knows that our prisons are full of people whose crimes were not intentional, but they were still prosecuted and imprisoned for breaking the law.

 

This report has all the appearances of a whitewash and an evasion of the FBI’s troubling role in this garbage barge of institutional roguery. Americans remain in the dark, due to questions left unanswered, such as what really transpired between Bill Clinton and Loretta Lynch during their July 2016 airport tête-à-tête, a few days before Comey let Hillary, a presidential candidate, off the hook on the email server issue? How was it not a conflict of interest for Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe’s wife to receive $700,000 for her state legislative race, from Clinton’s campaign bag-man, Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe? How did the wife of a top FBI agent, Bruce Ohr, get on the payroll of Fusion GPS, the company that brokered the Steele Dossier? And how did the FBI conceal the fact from the judges who ruled on FISA warrants against President Trump and his associates, that the Steele Dossier was bought and paid for by the Clinton campaign?

 

There isn’t a hint of any IG Report on other FBI abuse of power. like inserting an actual spy into President Trump’s campaign. Neither is there any attention given the FBI concealment of Obama’s lie and denial he knew anything about Clinton’s secret server.

 

What alternate universe is Horowitz from and when are some of these criminals and traitors to the United States going to be prosecuted and thrown into the deepest, darkest dungeon, underneath a prison?

 

U.S. Attorney John Huber has supposedly been investigating several of these crimes since November 2017. His boss, Attorney General Jeff Sessions has informed House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA), House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-SC) and Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) that such an investigation is within the full scope of Huber’s existing mandate. With 470 investigators, Huber has enormous investigative firepower that far exceeds the staff of any special counsel.

Americans need plain sight and new leaders with plain sight, pure and simple, because something evil is coursing through the halls of our government and in the Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation these days. Anytime an average citizen can recognize the multiple acts of treason that were committed by Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and their minions, through the State Department, the FBI and the Department of Justice, but career federal agents dismiss them as oversights or “unintended”, something is terribly wrong, and if the Inspector General’s Report is any indication, our Republic is on its last dying legs, unless the patriots of America can right the Republic, peacefully or not.

‘Worse than expected’: IG’s coming report expected to be ‘fairly damning indictment’ of Comey’s FBI


James Gagliano – CNN Reporter

 

WHAT! A CNN reporter says his sources report that IG Michael Horowitz will be releasing a “damning indictment” of FBI Seventh Floor, i.e. the FBI managing elitists.

‘Worse than expected’: IG’s coming report expected to be ‘fairly damning indictment’ of Comey’s FBI

 

By Tom Tillison

James Gagliano, a law enforcement analyst for CNN, took to Twitter Wednesday to share that sources tell him the soon-to-be released Department of Justice Inspector General report is “worse than expected.” according to his sources.

 

The retired FBI supervisory special agent added that the report is “a fairly damning indictment of FBI’s seventh floor during the [James] Comey era.”

 

“Sources with knowledge of the impending DOJ Inspector General Report confirm that it will be a fairly damning indictment of FBI’s seventh floor during the Comey era. “It’s worse than expected,” seems to be the consistent theme …,” Gagliano tweeted.

 

 

 

The seventh floor is where senior officials at the FBI call home, such as fired FBI Director James Comey and his fired deputy director, Andrew McCabe, according to The Washington Times.

 

Did we mention that Gagliano is a CNN analyst?

 

Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz released a damning report last month that accused McCabe of “lack of candor” about his authorization of leaks to the media, behavior that the report said “constituted misconduct.”

 

 

 

Horowitz also forwarded  criminal referral for McCabe to the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Washington D.C.

 

The reaction on social media centered around the question of whether the country will see “equal justice” following the release of the inspector general’s report, though some suggested the FBI may need to do some refurbishing on the 7th floor.

 

Here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:
