THE NEW FBI AGENCY EVERYONE FORGOT – DID ADAM SCHIFF JUST GET CAUGHT IN AN ELABORATE COUNTERINTELLIGENCE STING?…
December 9, 2017 by Sundance
By now everyone is likely aware of the Fake News story run by CNN on Friday surrounding an email received by Donald Trump Jr. The email was part of the investigative evidence shared with the House Intelligence committee; and later leaked from within that committee to CNN – thereby initiating the false reporting on the content.
The central issue in the CNN story was the date of an email.
It was leaked from within the committee, and later reported by CNN, that the date was “September 4th, 2016”; a date convenient for a collusion narrative between Trump Jr and WikiLeaks.
However, the real date, on the actual email, was “September 14th, 2016”; a day after Wikileaks published the content of their DNC leaks and a date that makes the entire CNN report a ‘nothingburger’.
However, CNN reports that two independent sources originally leaked to them the contents of what they had seen on the email in question. But CNN never saw the email, until later in the day.
Think about this carefully.
♦Two “independent sources” both looked at an email, and both came away from reading that email with the wrong date? How is that possible?
It has been CTH contention for several weeks that a counterintelligence sting operation has been going on within the IC community. False trails of information, seeded by ‘White Hat’ investigators, intended to be captured by ‘Black Hat’ leakers – and delivered to their usurping allies in media. The stories are fake, the leaks are real.
All investigative documents, relating to the witness, are provided to the congressional committees prior to the interviews with the witnesses; or, if the information is classified, each committee member has an opportunity to review the documents via a controlled SCIF environment when no physical copies are allowed as part of the evidence.
The Don JR./Wikileaks email could very easily be part of a ‘sting’. The date was intentionally seeded as incorrect. The resulting story is fake. The leak, however, is real.
Each nugget of disinformation exposes a specific leaker. Each trail used in the sharing of that disinformation exposes the enabling media. The White Hat plants the fake news seed, and then watches to see where, when, how, to-whom, and from-whom, it shows up.
In this example, we believe it is most likely House Intelligence Committee Minority Chairman Adam Schiff was the recipient of the disinformation, and has now exposed himself as a leaker to an elite, previously undisclosed, investigative unit specifically assembling evidence of corruption and leaking at the highest levels of government.
The scale and strength of the CNN push-back, and specifically the tone in their refusal to even consider discussing source of the false information, further supports our supposition.
Keep in mind, Representative Adam Schiff is -as an outcome of his minority ranking on the House Intel Committee- a member of the elite congressional oversight “Gang of Eight”.
This is a VERY BIG deal. The Gang of Eight holds oversight on every covert intelligence operation going on around the world. The Go8 oversee the NSA, CIA, FBI, DNI, and every single intelligence unit and operation. The Go8 are the only group with oversight on the CIA action from Presidential Finding Memos authorizing covert operations.
The back-story to CTH theory on this endeavor includes an almost complete, years-long, Dept of Justice Office Inspector General investigation that no-one was paying attention to until recently. And don’t forget the ongoing FBI investigation into the Awan Brothers, and the quantifying the potential intelligence compromise, plays into this.
That said, it would not be the IG carrying out the counterintelligence operation to identify leakers. In actuality, no official IC agency would be empowered to place fake news in front of congress. Setting traps for congress is generally bad form, and for matters of trust – bad politics. That reality, amid those who follow DC politics, is the central point to dismiss such the “Black Hat Hunting” theory.
However, few people were paying attention four months ago when Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coates told us they were going to do exactly that:
04:30 …”The FBI has created a new counterintelligence unit to manage these [leak] cases”…08:17 …”these National Security breaches do not just originate from within the Intelligence Community. They come from a wide range of sources within the government, including the Congress.”…
Two days later, Sunday August 6th, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein reiterated he was going to follow through on the investigative demand of AG Sessions and DNI Coates and again referenced a “new counterintelligence division within the FBI”.
00:50 …“we’re responding appropriately. We’re going to devote more resources, re-evaluate our procedures and make sure we investigate every one of those leaks in an appropriate way.”…1:07 “We have seen a surge in referrals (of leaks). We’ve seen an increase in the number of leaks. And we’re going to respond appropriately and try to establish an effective deterrent. Criminal prosecution isn’t the only way to prevent leaks but it’s an important part of the solution.”…1:43 “That significant increase has necessitated an increase in resources. And so we have re-prioritized our cases within the National Security Division, we’re providing appropriate supervision at a high level, we’ve created a new unit within the FBI to focus on those leaks, and we’re going to devote whatever resources are necessary to get them under control.”…
If you consider the years-long IG investigation is coming to a conclusion. And there have been several high-profile ‘mistakes’ (from the media perspective) based on leaks recently.
The leaks were real, the underlying information was false:
ADDITIONALLY, OVERLAY THIS: Some, are beginning to catch on… Keep Watching.

A crisis in leadership at the FBI Upper management has been infected with political bias
The Washington Times more >
By John Ligato - - Tuesday, December 19, 2017
The institution of the FBI is not in tatters, contrary to recent reports. That’s because the identity of the FBI is not located on the seventh floor at FBI headquarters. It resides within the hearts and minds of the brick agents.
The FBI had been immune to outside influences until Robert Mueller became director. Although the FBI reports to the Justice Department, we maintained an arm’s-length distance from that politically infested agency. Previous attorneys general attempted to shroud their partisanship, but recent appointees such as Loretta “Tarmac” Lynch have openly ripped Lady Justice’s blindfold off and dropped Lois Lerner on her scales.
So how did the FBI become politicized? During his 12-year term as FBI director, Robert Mueller slowly merged the FBIinto Justice. Prior to his tenure, agents could investigate cases minus interference from the U.S. attorney. The agent would submit the investigation findings to Justice, which had three options: indict, decline or request additional evidence.
After Mr. Mueller’s tenure, Justice Department’s approval was required to open sensitive cases, informants and authorize investigative techniques. This additional bureaucratic layer would be a minor speed bump had Justice not engaged in selective prosecution based on personal belief systems.
I’m an Italian who spent eight years infiltrating the Mafia, but it never occurred to me to ignore criminal activity based on shared ethnicity. FBI agents must remain fact finders because if you act upon your bias, then you turn into Peter Strzok.
Special Agent Strzok and Deputy Director “Andy” McCabe soiled their FBI credentials. Mr. McCabe’s wife accepted political dollars from a Clinton bud, while Mr. McCabe was investigating Hillary. Mr. Strzok played verbal gymnastics with a federal statute allowing Hillary a pass. Retired agents are wondering, “What the hell happened to my FBI?”
The sole function of FBI headquarters should be to support the field. If HQ disappeared tomorrow the field can still fulfill our mission of putting bad people in jail. Brick agents view HQ as an obstruction to overcome. Delays have damaged cases and cost lives. Field divisions are staffed with Senior Executive Service-level agents who are capable of making many decisions now required by headquarters.
It appears that several HQ managers had allegedly schemed to influence the 2016 presidential election. Field agents are too busy protecting America to participate in attempted government overthrows. When FBI Director James Comey announced that field agents supported his decision not to prosecute Hillary, he was suffering from a severe case of Beltway delusion. A majority of agents in Tulsa and Pittsburgh believed his decision to be a travesty of justice.
Examples of failed leadership at headquarters abound, but the handling of the Zacarias Moussaoui case is especially troubling. One month prior to the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks, Minnesota FBI agents were begging the Radical Fundamentalist Unit at headquarters for a FISA warrant. They sent HQ 70 emails warning of an “imminent” terrorist attack.
Evidence included intel from the Phoenix FBI that Osama bin Laden was sending agents to train in U.S. flight schools, a CIA warning that Moussaoui might be “involved in a larger plot to target airlines,” and pointing out Moussaoui’s $83,000 in tuition cash.
The Radical Fundamentalist Unit’s reply to a possible attack on U.S. soil was, “That ain’t gonna ever happen.” Well, it happened, and nearly 3,000 Americans were killed.
After the attacks, the FBI found documents linking Moussaoui to 11 of the hijackers. Minnesota agents testified that the leadership void inside headquarters is due to a culture of decision avoidance. The Radical Fundamentalist Unit at HQ was guilty of “obstructionism, criminal negligence, and careerism,” and that its opposition blocked “a serious opportunity to stop the 9/11 attacks.”
Messrs. Comey, Mueller and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein share a professional and personal history. In a questionable sequence of coincidences, Mr. Comey desires a special counsel and Mr. Rosenstein obliges by appointing their mutual bud Mr. Mueller, who then hires his buds, all of whom share a hatred for all things Trump. Had this team been vetted for jury duty, all would be excused for cause.
The above sequence of events does not pass the smell test. Politicians of both parties feel it suicide to fire Mr. Mueller. I disagree, since Mr. Mueller has violated several provisions of the statute which states that “the Special Counsel may be removed for a conflict of interest, or for even the ‘appearance,’ of a conflict of interest.”
Since Mr. Comey is both a witness and potential target in the Russia investigation, Mr. Mueller should immediately recuse himself or be fired for cause. In fact, this conflict of interest is so obvious that any decision made by the special counsel will be forever tainted.
The FBI is still the finest law enforcement agency on earth. We have some stress fractures, but we’ll survive and turn the page on this current crisis in leadership. We must return to our roots when the agents were viewed as knights in shining armor. I hope that Director Christopher Wray will reach out to the retired FBI ranks for some advice. I’m available.

COMMUNIST RED CHINA ENRICHES MITCH MCCONNELL AND ELAINE CHAO
Additional Articles By Kelleigh Nelson
Jun 04, 2018
Having cocaine on a family-owned ship certainly should be of interest because cocaine deaths in this country keep going up, and even though that ship, I think, headed to Europe, we still need to be aware that there are cocaine and other drugs moving on the high seas on commercial ships. And if nothing else, it should make us aware that we need to be careful when these commercial ships are docking, when your country needs to see what’s on them. And certainly, the family of Elaine Chao and McConnell should be no exception to that.
Don Blankenship, in an interview on Fox News, May 2, 2018
During the Korean War, the battle of the Chosin Reservoir pitted 15,000 allied ground troops against 120,000 Chinese infantrymen. The ten Chinese divisions, along with North Korean forces, were on a mission: wipe out the Marines, the Army, and all of the allies. They nearly did.
General Douglas MacArthur asked for permission to bomb communist China bases north of the Yalu and use Nationalist Chinese forces from Taiwan against the People’s Republic of China. Fearing a widening of the war and possible entry of the Soviet Union, Truman flatly refused these requests. The situation with North Korea and China today is a direct result of President Truman’s capitulation.
Paul Ryan Treachery
Retiring House Speaker, Paul Ryan is shoving an amnesty bill through the House against the wishes of President Trump and the American people. In pushing amnesty, he is obviously working to destroy the GOP majority in both the House and Senate come fall elections. In this article by Dick Morris, he lists the 21 GOP traitors who hope to get enough signatures to force a vote on legalizing recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, and a pathway to citizenship for others, all without having to embrace Republican demands for tougher immigration laws as a tradeoff or President Trump’s wall. These leftist Republicans don’t give a damn how much these illegals have cost taxpayers, or how many of them are criminals.
Mitch McConnell Betrayal
After attending a classified briefing with the DOJ and “The Gang of Eight” on documents related to special counsel Mueller’s Russia investigation, McConnell stated that he supports the Mueller probe. The so-called “Gang of Eight” is a group of bipartisan leadership lawmakers on the House and Senate Intelligence committees who have access to sensitive national security matters. Thankfully McConnell has refused a bill to protect Mueller from being fired.
It is the President’s power to fire anyone in the executive branch. On this, the Constitution imposes only one notable limitation: The chief executive is not permitted to hire top executive officers at will; they must be confirmed by the Senate. Once they are confirmed, though, he may fire them at will. This includes Sessions, Rosenstein, Mueller and others.
Mitch McConnell is married to Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, whose family owns Foremost Maritime Corporation, a Chinese shipping company.
Communist Red China
In Brett Decker’s 2011 book, Bowing to Beijing, he details how Obama spent every day undermining the power, economy, security and prestige of America, and that goes especially for Communist Red China. Obama sucked up to the Chinese reds, even bowing low at the waist to their President, while China’s President stood ramrod straight. Obama repeatedly refused to meet with prominent Chinese dissidents and human rights leaders. He ignored China’s human rights record and acquiesced to Chinese demands and even honored President Hu with a full-fledged state dinner. Michelle Obama wore red, her husband wore a red tie, Hillary wore a red jacket, and even Sasha Obama wore red pants. The color is symbolic of communism, and it also represents the blood of innocents murdered at Hu Jintao’s command or the tens of millions murdered by the Maoist government during their sixty plus years in power.
All this when China is “stealing technology, ripping off patents and trademarks, manipulating and even counterfeiting U.S. currency, breaking trade laws, misrepresenting military spending, selling toxic toys to American kids, dispatching armies of foreign agents to influence U.S. politicians, testing U.S. resolve on sensitive diplomatic issues, purchasing stakes in our banks and buying up our land, nurturing U.S. commercial dependency on Chinese business, building a blue-water navy, expanding its nuclear arsenal, and hacking our computer networks.” (Page 6, Bowing to Beijing)
Despite increased trade with the West, China’s government is more authoritarian than ever. As we make China richer, and their military stronger, it is becoming correspondingly less free.
Forced labor for prisoners is a way of life, and they make products for the West. They are padlocked in dormitories and forced to work up to 18 hours a day in subhuman environments. Apple, IPods, Bluetooth accessories, Ikea products and Marks and Spencer clothing are just a few of the items made by slave prison labor.
In China’s officially atheist nation, being a Christian or believing in God is considered subversive. There is and continues to be a savage campaign against Christians. (Page 16-31, Bowing to Beijing).
Communism is not love, “Communism is a hammer which we use to crush the enemy.” This is what America supports as most-favored-nation (MFN) trade status for China. In 2002, President George W. Bush granted permanent trade status to Communist Red China.
Billions have been made by government insiders like Biden and Kerry. Joe Biden’s son and Secretary of State John Kerry’s son-in-law profited immensely from secretive deals struck with companies connected to the Chinese government. These deals occurred as Biden and Kerry were negotiating sensitive issues with the Chinese government. Those deals by friends and confidants of Biden and Kerry ended up serving the Chinese military and strategic interests to the detriment of America. One of those Chinese companies in which they invested was stealing U.S. nuclear secretsaccording to the FBI.
McConnell, Chao and China
In Peter Schweizer’s latest book, Secret Empires, he exposes how the American political class hides corruption and enriches family and friends. McConnell and Chao are no different.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and his wife, Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao are benefiting royally from close ties to the Chinese military-industrial complex. Elaine was previously the head of the Federal Maritime Commission. Her family has reaped large profits thanks to the Chinese government and her husband, Mitch McConnell has become much less critical of Beijing as their wealth has grown.
McConnell and Chao are two of the most powerful couples in the United States. His wife has been a member of the cabinets of two presidents. I believe that Trump appointed Chao to Transportation Secretary believing it would buy favor from Senate Majority Leader McConnell, but it has not.
McConnell and Chao married in February 1993. Wedding attendees besides family included the Chinese representative to the United Nations. In 2004 they had an average wealth of $3.1 million. Ten years later they have a net worth of between $9.2 million and $36.5 million. They received a gift from Elaine Chao’s father, James Chao, whose fortune comes from the Foremost Maritime Corporation, a shipping firm her father founded with heavy ties to the Chinese government. James Chao is the chairman and Elaine’s two sisters are deputy chairman and general counsel. They have served on the board of a Chinese government-owned military contractor.
While Foremost is based out of the U.S., their ships are constructed by Chinese government shipyards and some are financed by the Chinese government.
In December of 1993, McConnell found himself in Beijing for a series of meetings with the most senior officials of the Chinese government, all of them arranged by his father-in-law at the invitation of the China State Shipping Corporation (CSSC). The CSSC came to play a central role in the family’s financial success, and this is why McConnell has increasingly avoided public criticism of China, he wouldn’t want to damage the family’s fortunes.
If he were to critique Beijing aggressively, or support policies damaging to Chinese interests, the family’s finances would immediately take a downturn.
In June 1989, China sent thousands of troops to Tiananmen Square leading to the massacre of untold numbers of Chinese students, with an estimated 10,000 arrested.
In 1989 McConnell’s views were hardline against the massacre and he gave a speech at the University of Louisville as a member of the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations. But later that year when President George H. W. Bush sent people to meet with Chinese officials, McConnell was the only Republican in the Senate to criticize the mission. He was only the second Republican U.S. Senator to visit China since the massacre; China publicized that visit.
When Congress required China to document annual progress on human rights in order to maintain its trade status in the aftermath of the Tiananmen Square massacre, ditching the requirement became a priority for China. In 2000, “McConnell cosponsored S.2277, which would do just that.” It would get rid of human rights requirements, as the Chinese government had been fighting to get the requirements removed for years.
Taiwan Control by China
In 1997, Taiwan was to be turned over to China, and McConnell reassured people like Cal Thomas that China would become more free. What a crock. McConnell said China would become more like Hong Kong and went on talk shows to spew this lie. He said the U.S. needed to be “ambiguous” as to whether we would come to the defense of Taiwan if attacked by China.
Jesse Helms introduced the Taiwan Security Enhancement Act as a show of support for Taiwan independence of Chinese control. The bill had 21 cosponsors, but McConnell was adamantly against it.
McConnell defends his record regarding trade with China by stating he has been a consistent free trader regardless of the country. His public record does not reflect his words. He’s supported trade restrictions on Burma because of their human rights record. He called for protections of certain industries in the Trans-Pacific Partnership. There is nothing in his previous record concerning any trade deals with China. Now he and his wife do everything to protect the communist state so their coffers keep growing.
Elaine Chao as Secretary of Labor under George W. Bush, took positions that were very beneficial to the Chinese government. She even resisted efforts to call out the Chinese over its workers’ rights practices. She opposed Section 301 of the U.S. Trade Act of 1974 in regards to workers’ rights. Her department had given millions of taxpayer dollars via grants to the Chinese to provide workplace education programs.
The Chao Family
Before their marriage, the Chao family had two large cargo ships built by the Jiangman shipyards in China. Ten years later, by 2002, their business with the Chinese government had increased and they had 10 ships, some are so huge they cannot transit the Suez Canal. The Chaos are dependent on Beijing for their business success, and those who run their ships are Chinese. The family, under different names are on the board of Chinese State Shipbuilding Corporation Holdings which was formed to get private capital to enter China’s defense industries. It is subsidized by the Chinese government and does military work.
Anti-Drug Warrior McConnell
McConnell is an alleged “anti-drug warrior.” He sponsored the 1996 “Enhanced Marijuana Penalties Act,” which would increase the mandatory minimum sentencing for people caught with marijuana. He also firmly opposes any form of legalized marijuana.
Back in 2014, one of James Chao’s 16 ships, the Ping May, was detained before leaving Columbia. Hidden in the ship’s chain locker, amidst its load of coal bound for Europe, were approximately ninety pounds of cocaine in forty neat packets.
Nothing about this was heard in Kentucky of course. James Chao’s firm is shrouded from public view. Its identity is concealed and its legal liability is limited through an array of tax shelters and foreign registrations. Registered through a limited liability company in the Marshall Islands, the Ping May flies the Liberian flag.
Most of Foremost’s vessels are flagged in Liberia, which ensures that crew members of Foremost’s ships work under Liberia’s maritime labor laws, which critics note allow for intimidation in the workplace and few protections for labor unions. That Liberian flag allows ship owners to pay lower tonnage taxes than ships that fly the US flag.
In other words, McConnell’s family have been financing his Senate campaigns with their cocaine drug profits…so that McConnell can go to Washington, to wage a “war on drugs.” Here is the full story.
Author Peter Schweizer asks, “With the Chao family so financially linked to the Chinese government, how can this not affect McConnell’s view on policy toward China?”
It pays to have friends and family in high places, both in Beijing and DC.
Brett Decker’s Bowing to Beijing and Peter Schweizer’s Secret Empires are must reads.

U.S. House Republicans Prepare Contempt Action Against FBI, DOJ
Bloomberg•December 3, 2017
Rod Rosenstein, deputy attorney general, listens during a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing in Washington, D.C., U.S., on Wednesday, June 7, 2017. Director of National Intelligence Daniel Coats told associates in March that U.S. President Donald Trump had asked him to intervene with then-Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James Comey to get the FBI to back off its focus on former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn and Russia probe, the Washington Post reported yesterday.
MoreU.S. House Republicans said Saturday they are drafting a contempt of Congress resolution against Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray, claiming stonewalling in producing material in the Russia-Trump probes and other matters.
“Unless all our outstanding demands are fully met by close of business on Monday, December 4, 2017, the committee will have the opportunity to move this resolution before the end of the month,” said Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes, in a statement.

Such contempt action has been under consideration by Nunes and other Intelligence Committee Republicans for several weeks. It is now moving forward after press reports Saturday about why a top FBI official assigned to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe of Russia-Trump election collusion had been removed from the investigation.
In his statement Saturday, Nunes pointed to those reports that the official, Peter Strzok, was removed after allegedly exchanging anti-Trump and pro- Hillary Clinton text messages with his mistress, who was an FBI lawyer working for Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe.

Until now, said Nunes, the FBI and Department of Justice have failed to sufficiently comply with an Aug. 24 committee subpoena -- including by specifically refusing repeated demands “for an explanation of Peter Strzok’s dismissal from the Mueller probe.”
“In light of today’s press reports, we now know why Strzok was dismissed, why the FBI and DOJ refused to provide us this explanation, and at least one reason why they previously refused to make Deputy Director McCabe available to the Committee for an interview,” said Nunes.

“By hiding from Congress, and from the American people, documented political bias by a key FBI head investigator for both the Russia collusion probe and the Clinton email investigation, the FBI and DOJ engaged in a willful attempt to thwart Congress’ constitutional oversight responsibility,” he said.
Nunes went on in his statement to say this has been part of “a months-long pattern by the DOJ and FBI of stonewalling and obstructing this Committee’s oversight work,” including also withholding subpoenaed information about their use of an opposition research dossier that targeted President Donald Trump in the 2016 election.
Salacious AllegationsThe dossier, which included salacious allegations about Trump, was paid for in part by the Democratic National Committee and Clinton through a law firm. Nunes and other committee Republicans -- backed by Speaker Paul Ryan -- say they want to investigate whether the Justice Department and FBI may have improperly relied on the dossier to kick-start federal surveillance that Trump associates were caught up in, without independently confirming the information they used to justify such spying.
“The DOJ has now expressed -- on a Saturday, just hours after the press reports on Strzok’s dismissal appeared -- sudden willingness to comply with some of the Committee’s long-standing demands,” Nunes said. “This attempted 11th-hour accommodation is neither credible nor believable, and in fact is yet another example of the DOJ’s disingenuousness and obstruction.”
Those agencies “should be investigating themselves,” he said.
A Justice Department spokesman, Sarah Isgur Flores, could not be immediately reached for comment by telephone or text.
