DECLAS Central: 20200717

Author note: please tell me if the docs are posting for you. They aren’t for me and I need to pull the chicken out of the oven.

Oh, my, the last one of these was in late May. Well, thanks to today’s drop(s) from various places, we have new DECLAS documents courtesy of the Judiciary Committee of the United States Senate:

July 17, 2020

WASHINGTON – Today, as part of the Senate Judiciary Committee’s ongoing investigation into the Crossfire Hurricane investigation and related FISA abuses, Chairman Lindsey Graham (R- South Carolina) released two recently declassified documents that significantly undercut the reliability of the Steele dossier and the accuracy and reliability of many of the factual assertions in the Carter Page FISA applications.

“I’m very pleased the investigation in the Senate Judiciary Committee has been able to secure the declassification of these important documents,” said Chairman Graham. “I want to thank Attorney General Barr for releasing these documents and allowing the American People to judge for themselves.

“What have we learned from the release of these two documents by the Department of Justice? Number one, it is clear to me that the memo regarding the FBI interview of the primary sub-source in January 2017 should have required the system to stop and reevaluate the case against Mr. Page.

“Most importantly after this interview of the sub-source and the subsequent memo detailing the contents of the interview, it was a miscarriage of justice for the FBI and the Department of Justice to continue to seek a FISA warrant against Carter Page in April and June of 2017.

“The dossier was a critical document to justify a FISA warrant against Mr. Page and this DOJ memo clearly indicates that the reliability of the dossier was completely destroyed after the interview with the primary sub-source in January 2017. Those who knew or should have known of this development and continued to pursue a FISA warrant against Mr. Page anyway are in deep legal jeopardy in my view.

“Secondly, the comments of Peter Strzok regarding the February 14 New York Times article are devastating in that they are an admission that there was no reliable evidence that anyone from the Trump Campaign was working with Russian Intelligence Agencies in any form.

“The statements by Mr. Strzok question the entire premise of the FBI’s investigation of the Trump Campaign and make it even more outrageous that the Mueller team continued this investigation for almost two and a half years. Moreover, the statements by Strzok raise troubling questions as to whether the FBI was impermissibly unmasking and analyzing intelligence gathered on U.S. persons.

“These documents, which I have long sought, tell a damning story for anyone who’s interested in trying to find the truth behind the corrupt nature of the FBI’s investigation into the Trump campaign in 2016 and beyond.”

From the Judiciary Committee webpage as of April 29, 2020:

The Senate Judiciary Committee released an additional declassified transcript between George Papadopoulos and an FBI confidential human source (declassified on April 24, 2020). (document)

__________________________________________

Previously, on this page (link to April 16 post):

As of the evening of April 16, 2020, the Senate Judiciary Committee has begun declassifying the documents that we’ve all been waiting for: The FISA warrant applications used to spy on members of the 2016 Trump Campaign for president.

First up on the Judiciary Committee website: documents relating to spying on Carter Page.

  • Confidential human source transcripts related to the Crossfire Hurricane operation
    • Transcript of George Papadopoulos and FBI Confidential Human Source (declassified March 13, 2020) (document)
    • Transcript of George Papadopoulos and FBI Confidential Human Source (declassified April 1, 2020) (document)
  • FISA Warrant Application for Carter Page and Three Subsequent Renewals
    • FISA Warrant Application for Carter Page (document)
    • FISA Warrant Application for Carter Page, Renewal One (document)
    • FISA Warrant Application for Carter Page, Renewal Two (document)
    • FISA Warrant Application for Carter Page, Renewal Three (document)
  • A July 2018 letter from DOJ to the FISA court alerting the court to some of the significant errors and omissions in the Carter Page FISA applications (letter)

The links are live to the documents that have been declassified. WARNING: most of them are REALLY long, as in over 80 pages, so for those whose bedtime reading is not legal documents, this thread will serve as a place to gather what the anons have been finding and sharing online in addition to what any of us find.

Please, post any findings, Tweets, images, emails, etc., found in the space below, and they will be added to future posts as the documents are made public.

As this declas effort is new, and will likely be dribbled out for proper public digestion, there will be new posts regularly sharing updates. It all depends on the volume of information, and the intensity as to whether or not this will recur daily, weekly, or as it happens.

In the meantime, happy digging y’all.

    1. Yup. We are past due for a D-5. Seems as though a culmination IS building.

      Have been hoping Barr’s nonchalant comments regarding Durham and indictments is a smoke screen to keep the jackals at bay.
      ^^^ Actually more than a hope. I believe it is all quite intentional. When the hammer swiftly comes down of the guilty bastards, it’ll be a pile driver of sorts. Guessing it’ll be both breathtaking and joyous. Well, joyous for the likes of us 🙂

  1. Thanks for this thread, DePat.
    Nice work!
    😀😊👍👏

    Not sure what you mean by “docs not posting”…I see links and a long blank section between the link for Senate-Judiciary-dot-gov and the link for Grassley-Flynn-Kislyak transcripts.

    If there is something between those two, then I am unable to see it.

  2. Thank you, DP. Exceptional post. I read John Podesta’s interview in Dec of 2017, I think it was.

    You can see the strategy they had developed in his answers…the whole RussiaRussiaRussia thing, the planted stories, etc.

    He was careful to keep Clinton out of it, but threw poor Robby Mook under the bus. 😁

    Podesta is an oily snake but he got snared in a couple points, especially when Conaway was asking questions.

    I think it was Conaway who rebuked Podesta for the “talking point” line of 17 intelligence agencies all agreeing about Russian interference.

    Swalwell is an idiot. Schiff shows up at the end. Meh.

    Podesta is one of the guys I want to see perp walked.

  3. Interesting to me that Lindy seems to want to drop responsibility on FBI, when it’s going to be a corrupt DOJ (and particularly TEAM MUELLER 17 ANGRY DEMS) that really gets nailed.

    COMING SOON.
